Chapter 531: Black Stockings

The heavy curtains were impenetrable.

Qiao Qiao rolled over under the blanket. She didn’t have a good sleeping posture. Even when she turned, she wished she could cross the entire bed.

This time, halfway through the turn, her limbs suddenly froze. After a moment, her hands began to move forward. When her fingertips touched something unusual, she knew very well that it wasn’t the temperature of her body.

But when she sensed that something was wrong, she didn’t withdraw her hand. Instead, she boldly continued to touch it. Her wrist was suddenly restrained. She was shocked and subconsciously struggled.

However, in the next second, the person who restrained her hand flipped over and pressed her down. Qiao Qiao opened her mouth to make a sound, but the person holding her down didn’t give her a chance to speak. He blocked her lips with a kiss.


Qiao Qiao was stunned.

She instinctively wanted to push the person on top of her away, but no matter how hard she tried, she could not push him away. She straightened her back and wanted to press down, but the man on top of her could always easily restrain her again.

The kiss was overwhelming.

Qiao Qiao struggled to no avail. Her resistance was futile. In the end, she made up her mind and simply hugged the man on her and kissed him back, trying

to distract him before escaping. She kissed him hard for an unknown period of time. Suddenly, a voice came from beside her ear. “Wake up.”

Qiao Qiao suddenly opened her eyes. She had just been woken up. Her expression was blank, and her eyes were even more blank. Her mouth was still pouting, and she did not pout back for a long time.

Mother Qiao, who was standing by the bed, said, “Why are you pouting?”

Qiao Qiao came back to her senses and turned to look at Mother Qiao. She was stunned for dozens of seconds before asking, “Mom, why are you in my room?”

Mother Qiao said, “Jingmo came to knock on your door, but you didn’t react for a long time. I happened to pass by and he asked me to come in and see why you weren’t up yet.”

With that, Mother Qiao asked again, “Why are you pouting? Are you dreaming?”

Qiao Qiao:

Pout… Pouting? Did she? Yes… it seemed…

Images suddenly surged into her mind. She had been forcefully kissed. Because she couldn’t struggle, she counterattacked. In the end, she couldn’t counterattack, so she simply forced a kiss back.

She remembered hugging that person tightly and kissing her hard. Then, then… she was woken up by Mother Qiao.

When she was woken up, she was still pouting. Qiao Qiao covered her face. Damn it. She actually had such a dream. And the person she dreamed of was Shao Jingmo forcing a kiss on her.

Qiao Qiao closed her eyes tightly, wanting to find a gap in the bed so that she could crawl into it. How could she treat the person in her dream, whose face could not even be seen clearly, as Shao Jingmo? That person could be anyone but him.

Could it be because she had been in more and more physical contact with Shao Jingmo recently? No, from today onwards, she had to keep a distance from Shao Jingmo. At least three meters away from him!

Seeing that Qiao Qiao was covering her face and not saying a word, Mother Qiao didn’t ask further. She only urged, “Get up and wash up. It’s your first day in the company today. Jingmo has been waiting for you for a long time.”

Qiao Qiao’s hand, which was covering her face, stiffened. She suddenly turned her head and asked, “I’m entering the company today?”

Seeing her daughter’s reaction, Mother Qiao knew that she had lost her mind from sleeping. “Look at your memory. You were fine in front of Grandpa last night. Today, you officially followed Jingmo into the company for an internship. You forgot about it when you woke up.”

After Mother Qiao’s reminder, Qiao Qiao finally remembered that she was going to the company with Shao Jingmo today.

She sat up.

Niother Qiao said, “Why are you still hugging the pillow?”

Qiao Qiao looked at the pillow in her arms and was so shocked that she threw it away.

Mother Qiao had a strange expression. “Hurry up and get up. You have to wear more formal clothes.’

“Got it,” Qiao Qiao replied in a tired voice.

Actually, she wasn’t listening to this.

Mother Qiao didn’t leave either. She suddenly approached Qiao Qiao. At this moment, Qiao Qiao’s head was lowered and she didn’t realize that Mother Qiao was approaching. Until she heard Mother Qiao’s faint voice ask her, “Somethings wrong with you since you came back from the capital. Qiao Qiao, tell me, did you and Jingmo…”

Probably knowing what Mother Qiao was going to say, Qiao Qiao quickly interrupted her. “No, no, nothing.”

Mother Qiao straightened her back. “You’re in a hurry to explain because you have a guilty conscience.”

Qiao Qiao: “…?” No way!

Mother Qiao suddenly looked back at the door with a serious expression. No one was there. She retracted her gaze and went forward. She sat down by Qiao Qiao’s bed and said to her earnestly, “When you and Jingmo got married back then, it was also because of the situation. We had an unspoken mutual understanding. ”

Qiao Qiao looked confused. She didn’t know why her mother had suddenly told her this. Was this a reminder of something? Just as she was wondering, she heard Mother Qiao ask her, “You and Jingmo aren’t together now, right?”

Hearing this, Qiao Qiao blushed slightly. “Mom, don’t say that.”

Seeing her daughter’s reaction, Mother Qiao knew that she had guessed correctly. “You and Jingmo haven’t reached that stage yet, so it’s good to keep it like this. Anyway, you don’t like him, and he doesn’t think much of you. When the Bai family’s matter is resolved in the future, you can part on good terms with him.”

Qiao Qiao was stunned. She had always thought that her mother wanted her to rely on Shao Jingmo. Only now did she know that her mother did not want her to have a deeper relationship with Shao Jingmo.

Mother Qiao shouted, “Guigui.”

Qiao Qiao looked up at Mother Qiao. “What’s wrong, Mom?”

She heard Mother Qiao say, “The Bai family is rising day by day. Only Shao Jingmo can deal with the Bai family. He has the ability to protect you. This is something Mom and Dad can’t do. You have to be grateful.”

“l know. Of course I’ll be grateful to him.” Actually, there was no need for Mother Qiao to remind her about this. Qiao Qiao knew what she was doing.

Although she always picked on Shao Jingmo, that was before she knew the truth about marriage. Now that she had to rely on him as her backer, although she still hated him, she would not show it on her face like before. One had to have a conscience.

She thought that her mother was just reminding her not to make Shao Jingmo angry.

“l know you know what you’re doing. I’m just taking precautions. I’m warning you.” Mother Qiao!s expression was as serious as before, and her tone was deep. “It’s better to pretend to be led by the nose than follow your heart.

Otherwise, it’ll be too late for regrets.”

Qiao Qiao was stunned again. “Too late to regret?”

Mother Qiao said, “I’m afraid that you really like him. It’s not that he’s bad, but he’s not that suitable for you. You have a better future. You’ll meet someone more suitable for you. He’s different. He stands at a high place and has no lack of other women around him. I don’t want to see you fall in love with him one day and fight with other women.”

When Qiao Qiao heard Mother Qiao’s words, she smiled indifferently. “Don’t worry. It’s impossible for me to like Shao Jingmo.”

“That’d be best,” Mother Qiao said. Mother Qiao stood up and changed her serious expression. She said gently to Qiao Qiao, “Study hard after you go to the company. You went to the capital after graduation. You don’t have any experience in the company. This is a good opportunity. Remember to bear with it and not get into conflict with anyone.”

“Mom, you’re a little worried for nothing. My personality is so good. How can 1 get into a conflict easily?” As Qiao Qiao spoke, she patted her chest in front of

Mother Qiao. “Don’t worry. I’ll train well in the company.”

After Mother Qiao went out, Qiao Qiao quickly got out of bed. After washing up, she went to the cloakroom to dress up.

Half an hour later, in the side hall of the Qiao residence.

Shao Jingmo was sitting on the sofa reading a financial newspaper. He was holding a cup of coffee in one hand and a newspaper in the other. When he heard a commotion at the top of the stairs, he looked up.

“Good morning, Little Uncle.” After Qiao Qiao finished the last step, she let go of her dress. When she walked over, she took the initiative to greet Shao Jingmo.

Shao Jingmo placed the coffee in his hand on the table and looked up at her. suggest you change your clothes.”

Before Qiao Qiao could approach, she stopped when she heard Shao Jingmo’s words. She looked down at what she was wearing. It was pleasing to the eye and she liked it no matter how much she looked at it. “Why do you want to change?” she asked.

Shao Jingmo closed the newspaper. “It’s not suitable.”

Qiao Qiao asked again, “Why not?”

Shao Jingmo put the newspaper aside and got up to walk towards her. Just as he was about to approach, Qiao Qiao looked at his face and suddenly thought of the dream this morning. She took two steps back and pulled away from the two of them.

Seeing her retreat, Shao Jingmo did not go forward again.

He looked at her. It was the same three words. “It’s not suitable.’

Qiao Qiao didn’t want to go against him, but she had chosen this outfit from the closet this morning and matched it for a long time. It was clearly very good-looking and appropriate.

A knitted skirt, a small fragrant jacket, and short boots. She didn’t show anything. She was even wearing leg socks. Why did she say they weren’t suitable?

Or rather, what should she dress like? OL business attire and black stockings?
