Tony had been struggling to stay awake for the past four hours when his mind dragged him into the oblivion of sleep. That was when the elevator in front of him made a 'ding' sound and motioned of the door opening came to view. He abruptly stood and eyes fixated on the elevator, waiting for the people inside to walk out.
The first person he saw was his young miss followed by a handsome man that could turn him gay except he wasn't. He rubbed his eyes, trying to recall if he had seen him before but nothing came up.
Fu Yixiao saw the face Tony was making and blinked in merriment. At the same time, she was touched by his loyalty. Seeing him standing in front of the elevator with his disheveled hair, she knew that he had been waiting for quite some time.
"Tony, why is your face like that?" She asked and snapped her finger in front of his agape eyes.
"Was it a ghost?" Wu Zhaoyi asked. Purposely played along with the funny reaction Tony was making. He knew the source of his incredulous reaction, probably due to him revealing his face, something he never did before.
Now that Fu Yixiao had learned the truth of his identity, he planned on leaving the mask for missions and not when communicating with her. He loved the way she stared at his face even though it was probably just her teasing and mocking. The feeling that he no longer had to be secretive made him happy.
"Ma...master?" Tony pointed his finger on the man who stood tall beside his young miss and seeing him approved, he staggered. "Tch, that was it? Does he really deserved such a reaction from you." Fu Yixiao cupped her chin and examine Wu Zhaoyi's face, teasing him with her eyes.
"En, he is handsome. My heart wavered for a second there." Wu Zhaoyi's was already rising his eyebrow indicating that he did deserve such praise but Tony's next comment made him frowned in displeasure. Fu Yixiao was already holding her stomach, holding the laughter that rampaging her throat.
"Alright. Keep your chastity to others." Fu Yixiao patted Tony's shoulder pretending to comfort him while her eyes were pestering at Wu Zhaoyi who was grinning at her antics. "Aren't you in a hurry? Liling must have been waiting like crazy in the mansion." He reminded.
Fu Yixiao pinched Tony's shoulder in realization and this resulted in the poor bodyguard to endured the pain with a grimace in his eyes. He always wondered about the source of his young miss strength for the petite body of hers seemed to always fool his eyes.
"Let's go!" She pulled Tony's hand. Wu Zhaoyi who saw her act immediately pulled them apart as he held her hand. "I'll send you out." He said with a straight face. "Ehh, sure." Fu Yixiao wasn't thinking of anything as she was too tired due to the lacked sleep.
Tony, on the other hand, shuddered as he had noticed the looked in his master's eyes earlier. He reminded himself not to blatantly let his young miss touched him or any other man in the future nor would he allowed men to touch his young miss. Or else, his master might as well end his life sooner. He shuddered at the thought.
"Fu Yixiao, I will confirm who is the sender of the message. For now, just pretend that nothing has happened. I believe the sender's purpose is simply to warn you." Wu Zhaoyi spoke when they arrived at the door that connected the dark chamber and the mansion. "Sure." Fu Yixiao smiled and leaned inward. In the past, he would always patted her head when she did something good. And at this moment, she wanted to feel the warmth of his hand.
However, what happened next was unexpected. She felt something soft pressed on her cheek, it was light and quick. Wu Zhaoyi had kissed her!
Tony who was standing nearby felt his face flushed in red, somehow embarrassed at the sight of his master kissing her young miss. He was indeed bold! Now, he wondered how his young miss would react. Knowing her, he thought that she probably would yell and turned him upside-down. He took a peek and was surprised to see his young miss was simply standing there, on the same spot, motionless.
Fu Yixiao was static as a statue. She wasn't expecting such an outcome. She blinked as she stared at the man in bewilderment. Her right hand slowly touched her head, feeling disappointed.
Wu Zhaoyi coughed as he finally realized what she was hoping for. He smiled awkwardly and was about to explain himself but a sharp pain on his right foot made him frowned in a grimace. He looked down and saw her feet stomped on his. "Fu Yi..." He glared at her only to feel his body involuntarily move forward by the pulling of his collar. This girl! He scolded her in his mind. Surprised by her response.
"Who ask you to kiss me?" He knew she would be angry but seeing her on her toes to meet his gaze, Wu Zhaoyi thought that she was adorable. He restrained himself from the urged to hug her.
"You should see how you look earlier. You asked for it." He responded. His face downcast not believing that he was misunderstood.
"You purposely did it." Fu Yixiao frowned as she was actually thinking if she initiated him to do it or not.
"Tony, what do you think? You saw it right?" Wu Zhaoyi pulled Tony within their mess. Tony was startled at the sudden twist. He was just an innocent bystander and now that his master pulled him along, he was promoted to a witness. He stared at the two pairs of eyes who was eagerly waiting for his verdict.
"Ahhh...dawn is here!" He shouted as he pointed on the sky, hoping that the fading of the darkness would distract them away.
Fu Yixiao immediately released Wu Zhaoyi's collar and looked at his phone to check the time. She grunted to see her phone was out of battery.
She looked around and saw the watch circling Wu Zhaoyi's wrist. She held his arm, staring at the short and long needles. She sighed upon seeing them strikes the number six and twelve correspondingly.
"Let's go." She said. Tony nodded, relief that he managed to get out of the sticky situation.
"Fu Yixiao. Take care." She turned around and saw Wu Zhaoyi waving at her, smiling. Somehow, a nostalgic feeling rushed in her head encouraging her to run to the man for an embrace.
Wu Zhaoyi was speechless as he felt her arms around his body.
"Thank you." He heard her thanked him.
"Sure." He replied after a few breaths, but she was no longer there. He leaned against a lamp post watching the dawn come slowly, followed by the brilliant blue sky of morning. The flutter of the leaves as the fog condensed and formed to a drop of water tugged his heart. It came to him that he really loved her and the sense of attachment he felt ascertained that once again he had fallen in love.
Hehe...love is in the air!
