Male Wife - Chapter 15
“The auspicious time arrives, husband and wife pays a visit—–”
Amidst the music, Xie Tingyue and Chu Mu walked into the main hall holding two ends of the big red silk.
“—Kowtow to heaven and earth—”
“Kowtow to the parents”
“Kowtow to each other”
Three sentences, three ceremonies, time is slow but it seems fast.
Xie Tingyue saw Chu Mu’s smile on the other side, warm and gentle, like spring wind, summer night moon, starlight and tide reflected on his eyes, deep but sincere.
After the ceremonies and rituals, everything went smoother. The new house was very quiet. No one has bothered them and couldn’t find anything amess. The Old Matriarch heard about the white cat’s action and sent a servant to bring foods to the new madam.
Xie Tingyue breathed a sigh of relief.
After waiting for a long time, Chu Mu came over. The tips of his hair were slightly wet, and he changes his clothes showing that he had already bathed.
Xie Tingyue smelled a faint scent of medicine. Is it a medicated bath?
Chang followed Qin Ping and pushed Chu Mu to the side of the table, placed a book on the left side of the table, a small wine cup and a long-necked wine jug on the right. After that, without saying anything, he bowed his head and walked out slowly.
Xie Tingyue looked at the opened book, there were even wet marks on the corner on the inner pages. There was a half cup of wine in the wine cup, which must have been drunk before.
This man. . . was he reading and drinking while taking a medicinal bath?
Noticing the curiosity in his eyes, Chu Mu picked up the wine cup with his three slender fingers and took a sip: “I usually don’t have a good health. The doctor said that a small drink is good for my health”
Xie Tingyue thinks how can an average patient drink alcohol, it could be that Chu Mu’s illness is rare.
“Want to drink with me?” Chu Mu held his chin, smiled and offered an invitation.
His smile was no different, but Xie Tingyue suddenly noticed the bloodshot eyes and flushing on his cheeks.
This person is exhausted.
He must be exhausted from the long day, isn’t he?
A ting of guilt gradually climbed from the bottom of his heart.
This marriage has been ridiculously rushed from beginning to end, Chu Mu didn’t need to pay much attention, he was a patient. No matter how he did it, no one could pick it out, but he still greeted him in the cold wind. He greeted him personally in the cold wind and took care of himself.
‘There are many things that I should have been paying attention to at all times…’
“Next time you have a drink, can I accompany you again?” Xie Tingyue looked at the long-necked wine jug, “Drinking too much hurts the body”
There is only half in a cup and not much in the wine jug, if he joins he must add wine which is not advisable.
Xie Tingyue’s words didn’t say it clearly but Chu Mu understood what he meant and the curve on his eyes arc more: “Okay.”
Xie Tingyue felt a little strange, when the couple met in the bridal chamber the atmosphere was mostly awkward and bashful. But he and Chu Mu were just like an old friend, very natural, leisure and comfortable.
Seeing that it was not early, he asked Chu Mu: “Do you want to rest?”
Chu Mu held the scroll with his slender finger, and didn’t look away: “Wait a minute, I have to finish reading the book”
Xie Tingyue: “Then after you finish reading I will help you dress.”
The scroll was placed on the table by his slender finger, and Chu Mu turned his head: “Take it off”
Xie Tingyue: “Huh?”
Chu Mu smiles: “Take it off”
Xie Tingyue: . . . .!!
