Accidentally Married a Man Full of Vinegar Chapter 9

TL: snaggletooth


Qin Yiheng was sitting on the sofa in the living room. He was holding his phone while looking at the small gift box on the coffee table, deep in thought.

The scent of human is very faint. He doesn’t need to analyze deeply nor make guesses to see clearly that Chu Yi hasn’t been home at all the past few days.

It hasn’t been long since Qin Yiheng got off the plane. He actually had something work-related to do but he doesn’t want to do anything right now, he only wants to wait for Chu Yi to come back.

He accepted Xu Jing’s suggestion and brought a small gift for Chu Yi. He even rushed to make the late-night plane back because work ended early over there and he felt that since he has a family, he didn’t need to stay for extra.

But, where was his family member?

At this moment, Qin Yiheng felt a little upset.

After sitting for a while, there was a noise outside the door, coming from his garage.

Qin Yiheng glanced at his watch, fifteen minutes passed since he hung up the phone.

Normally, it takes 20 minutes or more to get from Chu Yi’s place to his. Chu Yi’s voice was also very low when he called just now, which sounded like he had just woken up.

15 minutes.

Qin Yiheng was somewhat satisfied.

Soon, Chu Yi entered the password for the door, hurried inside, and changed his shoes. He seemed to be a little scared when he saw Qin Yiheng sitting there on the sofa. The closer he got, the slower his pace became.

He appeared like he had just put on a random sweater and there was no time to arrange the hoodie string. One of them was outside and the other was hidden inside. The one on the outside swayed up and down along with Chu Yi’s gasping sound.

Chu Yi stood on the edge of the sofa, afraid to speak.

Qin Yiheng raised his head to look at him, he saw that his hair was still messy and there were a handful of slightly curled bangs that rose up from his eyebrows. Chu Yi’s eyes are not considered small, he stared at Qin Yiheng with a gaze full of uneasiness, which looked a bit like he was aggrieved.

Suddenly, Qin Yiheng didn’t seem to feel that uncomfortable anymore.

“Sit.” Qin Yiheng spoke.

Chu Yi gulped and sat in front of Qin Yiheng.

Qin Yiheng went straight into it, “Are you unsatisfied about our marriage?”

Chu Yi panicked, “No, I’m satisfied.”

Qin Yiheng’s tone was flat, and it didn’t sound like he was angry.

Of course, it didn’t sound like he wasn’t angry either.

Qin Yiheng, “You moving to my place was negotiated at the beginning, isn’t that right?”

Chu Yi nodded, “Right.”

Qin Yiheng, “I define this place as our home. Is this understanding wrong?”

Chu Yi shook his head lightly, “It’s not wrong.”

Qin Yiheng frowned, his tone sank, “Give me the reason you did not come home these past few days.”

Chu Yi seemed to hear a thump as a heavy stone slammed into his heart, leaving him at a loss.

“I…”

The last time Chu Yi was so flustered, he was incited by his deskmate in middle school to go to the internet cafe and was caught by his mother.

He gulped, searched for a reasonable excuse, and confessed, “I’m unfamiliar with the bed.”

Qin Yiheng tilted his head a little as if he didn’t expect this answer.

Qin Yiheng, “Unfamiliar with the bed?”

Chu Yi, “Mn.”

“Unfamiliar with the bed meaning?” Qin Yiheng was a little unfamiliar with this phrase, “You’re repulsive to unfamiliar beds?”

Chu Yi nodded, “Yes.”

Qin Yiheng, “Will you have insomnia?”

Chu Yi told the truth, “I will.”

Qin Yiheng questioned, “Then it’s even more the case that you should not go home. Sleeping here more will reduce your unfamiliarity.”

Chu Yi, “Uh…”

Crap.

That seems to be right.

“But you’re not at home.” Chu Yi was so scared that his mind was in jumbles, unsure if he was making this up or saying the truth, “Since you’re not at home and I have insomnia, I will be even more uncomfortable and won’t be able to fall asleep even more.”

Chu Yi blushed after speaking.

For him, these words can already be counted as flirting. Rounding it up, it’s almost like saying that I miss you and I hope you can stay by my side.

In his entire life, he has hardly ever flirted.

But before he was done being shy, Qin Yiheng replied…

“Can it be solved by sex?”

“Huh- huh?” Chu Yi was stunned for half a second after hearing this, and his eyes widened instantly, “What?”

Qin Yiheng was serious, “Last time and last last time, after we finished, you fell asleep almost immediately so I didn’t realize that you were troubled in this aspect.”

Chu Yi leaned back subconsciously, his face was burning, “Huh…huh?”

How did the topic change into this?

Seeing him like this, Qin Yiheng seemed to realize what he had said. He coughed and returned to the main topic, “Since we are legal partners, we will be living together in the future. There are some things I hope you can overcome.”

Qin Yiheng raised his eyes and met Chu Yi’s line of sight. He said with a low voice, “You are not allowed to secretly go home in the future, okay?”

At that moment, Chu Yi felt that Qin Yiheng was so gentle.

Chu Yi nodded, “Okay.”

Qin Yiheng, “In addition, I hope you can communicate your problems with me. I am your husband.”

Chu Yi was very guilty, “Okay.” After thinking for a bit, he added, “I’m sorry.”

Qin Yiheng smiled slightly to show his forgiveness. After seeing this, Chu Yi finally breathed a breath of relief.

Then, Qin Yiheng pushed the box on the table over.

Chu Yi was overwhelmed, “For me?”

Qin Yiheng already expected Chu Yi to be surprised.

He knew it, gifts are necessary.

After Xu Jing suggested this today, the first question he asked was, why should I give him a gift? Then after thinking for a bit, he added, there is no special holiday, and it’s not Chu Yi’s birthday, why do I have to give him a gift?

Xu Jing responded, because it’s from your feelings, Mr. Chu will definitely be happy when he sees it.

Qin Yiheng was encouraged by the word “happy” and went to buy it. However, the expression on Chu Yi’s face right now was more shocked than anything else.

Qin Yiheng lowered his eyes and began to doubt the necessity of gift-giving.

“For you, a small gift.” Qin Yiheng answered him.

Chu Yi took it, only then did he show a happy expression. He said, “I’m opening it.”

Qin Yiheng, “Mn.” Then he picked up the water on the table.

There was paper wrapping outside the box, Chu Yi carefully pushed the box out, and then slowly opened the box.

It’s a watch with a simple elegant black strap. Chu Yi stared at it for two seconds, feeling that it was a little familiar.

He raised his head, and at this moment, Qin Yiheng very cooperatively showed him the watch on his own wrist.

Qin Yiheng, “It’s the same style, they’re couple-watches.”

Chu Yi felt his heart fiercely knocked on.

He knows that Qin Yiheng was only trying to keep their marriage well-managed. This gift was just his representation of being a husband, not because he wanted to surprise or please Chu Yi.

But Chu Yi was still easily touched.

Qin Yiheng saying “it’s the same style, they’re couple-watches” in a very calm tone almost filled Chu Yi full of emotions.

Oh god, he loves it!

Oh god, what kind of otherworldly husband is this?!

While he was thinking about staying away from this house, his husband actually bought him a couple-watch.

Where did such a big idiot like him come from?!

However, Chu Yi has always been a very restrained person. Even if he was so excited that he was about to pass out on the inside, he will still behave with decency on the outside.

So he smiled with decency at Qin Yiheng, and said politely, “Thank you.”

Qin Yiheng, “Mn.” He finally took a sip of the water he had been holding.

In a place where Chu Yi couldn’t see, a corner of Qin Yiheng’s mouth lifted.

It seemed that Chu Yi turned out happy, it was right to buy the gift after all.

After the matter was resolved, Qin Yiheng no longer continued to sit with Chu Yi and went upstairs to work.

Chu Yi had just been scared to the point of feeling choked, plus he really wasn’t used to the bed, therefore, he has insomnia right now.

He knew clearly of the time Qin Yiheng returned to the bedroom, which was 12:30. He also knew clearly that after returning, he went to the bathroom to shower, came out 20 minutes later, and finally went to bed with a body full of fragrance.

There was a very familiar feeling of the bed sinking and the lamp turning off.

Chu Yi also closed his eyes and stopped moving when he remembered what Qin Yiheng said about sleeping.

After half a minute, Qin Yiheng spoke.

“Sleeping?”

Chu Yi halted.

He originally wanted to pretend to be asleep, although he didn’t know why he should pretend to be asleep, it seems that everyone would choose to pretend to be asleep in this situation.

However, after he pondered on it for a few seconds, thinking of how he was supposed to be unfamiliar with this bed.

He can’t pretend.

“No.”

Having not spoken for a long time, Chu Yi’s voice was very hoarse. He was afraid that Qin Yiheng couldn’t hear him clearly, so he repeated, “No.”

Qin Yiheng asked him, “Can’t sleep?”

Chu Yi, “A little.”

Qin Yiheng said, “I am a little tired today, but if you need it, I can help you.”

In the first second, Chu Yi hadn’t realized what Qin Yiheng was saying, and then in the next second, he remembered what Qin Yiheng said in the living room in front of him…

“Can it be solved by sex?”

This sentence echoed in Chu Yi’s mind.

Chu Yi was startled and then refused, “No-, no thank you.”

How can that be turned into a duty or an aid?

Although Qin Yiheng’s handling of their marriage seemed like business, Chu Yi still hoped that some attention could be put into some things, especially those kinds of things.

Chu Yi suddenly remembered that although they did it several times, they never kissed.

Mn, even if you don’t pay attention to that, you have to pay attention to your kidneys. In short, it’s a task that must not be taken.

The first two times he could feel that Qin Yiheng really did want him.

He, himself, also enjoyed it.

But tonight, it’s better to pass. Qin Yiheng was indeed really tired.

Qin Yiheng did not continue this topic, instead he asked, “How long does it take for you to familiarize yourself with the bed?”

Chu Yi thought for a bit, “About two weeks.”

In the past, when he just entered high school and university, or when he had just moved into his apartment, it took two weeks for him to gradually become able to fall asleep.

Qin Yiheng, “Mn.” Then asked, “Until what time will you suffer from insomnia?”

Chu Yi, “3 to 4.”

Qin Yiheng asked, “What do you do when you’re having insomnia?”

Chu Yi, “Nothing, I just lay there.”

Qin Yiheng, “Mn.” Then added, “I’m going to sleep, don’t disturb me and don’t touch me.”

Chu Yi, “…”

Here he thought they were about to have a late-night conversation.

Chu Yi could only, “Mn.”

This is the Qin Yiheng, Chu Yi almost forgot that he is the legendary mountaintop flower.

His caring was only the obligation of marriage, and his indifference is his true nature.

Even if the problem can’t be solved, it’s none of my business.

Very well.

That night, Chu Yi didn’t fall asleep until 4 in the morning.

And because he remembered Qin Yiheng’s words to not move, he didn’t dare to even turn. He maintained a lying down flat position. If he felt uncomfortable somewhere, he would only move a little, and then continue to lie there.

Because of his unfamiliarity with beds, he was always the most exhausted one every time he went out far. So in these years, as long as he stayed in this city, he would never not return home at night. With the beds outside, he really can’t fall asleep quickly.

Gradually, Chu Yi finally lost consciousness.

But after he fell asleep, the person next to him suddenly turned over.

As if afraid of waking him up, Qin Yiheng’s breath was very light.

“Chu Yi.”

Qin Yiheng called out to him quietly.

Nobody answered. 

Good, he’s asleep.

    I really don’t like their dynamic. Mc is coming off as a doormat & yes man. Ml does nothing to ease mc’s discomfort & anxiety around him.
