Subtle relationship

Chapter 685: Subtle relationship

Morning, before 8 am.

Geng Yuehua’s apartment bedroom.

Geng Yuehua asked. "What’s wrong with Dong Xuebing?"

"What do you think?" Geng Yuehua’s mother frowned. "He had humiliated your brother by sending him to the Party School. But Xinke called me this morning to tell me that you had danced with Dong Xuebing at the ball last night."

"Oh, it’s about this."

"That’s right. Why did you dance with him?"

"I have my considerations. Don’t interfere with my work. I know what to do."

"I am reminding you now. That brat is young and ignorant, and you should stay away from him. Find an excuse to transfer him away. I get mad whenever I see him at the quarters. When did your brother offend him? How can he treat your brother like this?"

"Alright. I know."

"Good to hear this. I know you know what to do."

"Ok, bye."

"Alright. Carry on with your work. Don’t tire yourself."

Geng Yuehua hung up.

Geng Yuehua’s mother got up and left the room.

Dong Xuebing, who is hiding under the bed, is speechless after hearing Geng Yuehua’s mother talking about him behind his back. He had offended Geng Yuehua and her family greatly.

A few moments later, the door outside closed.

Dong Xuebing saw Geng Yuehua’s mother had left, and he quickly climbed out from under the bed. He patted away the dust and returned home with the clothes.

Dong Xuebing’s apartment is quiet, and Geng Yuehua should be in the bedroom.

Dong Xuebing puts down the clothes and prepares breakfast.

Dong Xuebing went to the bedroom with Geng Yuehua’s clothes when breakfast was almost ready. "Mayor Geng, breakfast is almost ready. It’s time to wake up."

Geng Yuehua is sitting against the headboard with her eyes shut, and her long hair is covering her chest. She immediately turned to the door when she heard Dong Xuebing and pulled the blanket to cover herself. "Don’t you know how to knock?"


Is this my house or your house?

Dong Xuebing smiles. "I will take note of it the next time. Here are your clothes." He passed the clothes to Geng Yuehua.

Geng Yuehua took her clothes from Dong Xuebing and saw the bright green see-through bra at the bottom of the pile of clothings. Her face changed immediately, and she gave Dong Xuebing a stare. "Dong Xuebing! What is the meaning of this?"

Dong Xuebing’s smile froze when he saw Geng Yuehua’s reaction. "Err…. I brought your clothes for you."

Geng Yuehua stares at Dong Xuebing coldly. "You went through my things."

"No…." Dong Xuebing quickly explain. "I opened your drawer to look for your underwear, and I saw this."

Geng Yuehua took a deep breath and kept quiet.

Dong Xuebing knows she must be embarrassed.

Sigh… I should not play this joke on her.

Dong Xuebing is scared she might lose her temper. "If you don’t like it, you can wear that red color set. I don’t have other meanings. Err…. I am still cooking soup. Get dressed while I check my soup." He made up an excuse and left the room.

A few minutes later, Geng Yuehua got dressed and walked out of the room. She is still looking terrible and ignores Dong Xuebing’s invitation to have breakfast. She went into the bathroom to wash up, and Dong Xuebing wondered which underwear she wore.

Dong Xuebing placed the soup on the table and said. "The blue toothbrush is mine, and my face towel is white. You can use it if you want."

Dong Xuebing glanced into the bathroom when Geng Yuehua walked out. He noticed that white face towel was swaying on the rack, and his blue toothbrush had water droplets on it. She had used his toothbrush and towel, and he immediately knew she was not angry with him. If she is angry with him, she can return home to brush her teeth and not use his items.

"Come, have breakfast." Dong Xuebing placed the chopsticks for her.

Geng Yuehua sat down and started eating breakfast and soup.

Dong Xuebing sat beside her and asked. "How is it?"


"Uh? What do you mean?"

Geng Yuehua looked at Dong Xuebing with a frown. "Can you be quiet when eating?"

Dong Xuebing smiled and started eating. But he did not keep quiet. "I got a fright when I was taking your clothes earlier. Your mother entered your apartment suddenly, and I got to hide under the bed. I overheard your call with her, and I think your mother has a bad impression of me. Mayor Geng, I need to explain to you. You cannot blame me for what happened to Xinke. It was your brother who kept making things difficult for me, and I had no choice but to…." He had changed how he addressed Geng Xinke because of his relationship with Geng Yuehua.

Geng Yuehua’s face immediately turns cold when Dong Xuebing mentions Geng Xinke.

Dong Xuebing noticed her facial expression and continued. "Alright…. It’s my fault for what happened to Xinke. I will apologize to him when he comes back." He felt that he had slept with Geng Xinke’s sister and should be more forgiving.

Geng Yuehua finished her breakfast in two minutes and sat on the sofa to watch the news.

Dong Xuebing could not eat as fast as Geng Yuehua and took around ten minutes to finish his breakfast. After that, he washed the dishes and came to the living room. He sat beside her and hugged her by her waist. "Your mother asked you to transfer me to the District’s Political Consultative Conference…. Are you really going to do that? Let me know in advance if you are really going to transfer me. I need to be mentally prepared." He is unsure if Geng Yuehua will transfer him because he doesn’t know what she is thinking.

Geng Yuehua might be docile in bed and allowed him to do whatever he wanted with her. But Dong Xuebing could never guess what she was thinking after putting on her clothes.

Geng Yuehua stared at Dong Xuebing emotionlessly. "I told you before. I dislike you, and I will not mix my feelings with work. Also, get your hands off me!"

Sigh…. I know you will say this.

Dong Xuebing did not remove his hands. He only loosens his arms and continues to hug her.

Geng Yuehua might sound firm, but she does not say anything when his arms are still around her waist.
