Li Ming just looked at him, his heart moving. Since the day he had gotten to know him, Mo Fang had always been like this. While he was an emotional person that liked to get close to others and could be very straightforward, he was also somebody that would put so much thought into what others wanted and what was important to them to the point where he didn’t seem to dare to ask for something he wanted for himself even when he was offered to do so.
“I’ve already accepted so don’t worry about it. If you feel the need, we can have a talk about it. If you don’t think it’s necessary, then we don’t have to either. I just don’t want you to become unhappy. Alright?”
Mo Fang nodded, feeling that it would make Li Ming happy if he did. “Of course. If that’s what you need from me, then I’ll do it.” He smiled happily and then inched a little closer. “Well, do you mind if I hug you for a bit? I mean nobody’s around.”
“Mn.” Li Ming actually pulled him closer and then brushed through Mo Fang’s hair with his fingertips. Holding him like this … he also felt that it was quite nice. If things could always be like this, he wouldn’t mind at all.
Mo Fang was naturally happy as well. He shifted a bit on the spot, and then put his head on Li Ming’s shoulder, making sure that he was lying there comfortably. This kind of posture had to be held for a long time to give your boyfriend the feeling that you were completely at ease with him. If you were struggling to find the right position, it would just annoy him. So this was very good.
Come to think of it, it really was nice lying like this. Not only did Li Ming have the right height for this, but he was also muscular enough that you could feel it through his shirt. He definitely didn’t have anything to complain about.
The two of them continued to sit like this for a while as if neither of them was willing to move. Right now, it was still pretty warm outside even though the temperature would likely start to go down again soon. For the time being though, being outside like this was really nice. In fact, just this would probably be enough for one of their first dates.
Li Ming looked up at the sky, watching the clouds drift by. He wasn’t sure whether Mo Fang had planned something else or not but he really could’ve just stayed here. Just talking a bit about their thoughts … That was the best way to get to know each other, right? “If you had one wish, what would it be?”
Mo Fang shifted slightly, looking up at him. “What kind of wish are we talking about?”
Li Ming raised his brows. “Didn’t I say it already? Any wish. No matter what. Even if it’s something completely impossible or crazy. Just something that you really, really want.”
Mo Fang gave a hum and then rubbed Li Ming’s chest. “Well, I don’t think I need anything crazy or impossible. I just want to be with somebody that I can be happy with and I hope that it would be for a long time. Preferably forever.”
Li Ming’s gaze couldn’t help but soften. Ah, if he continued like this, his heart would melt. How come Mo Fang was this good at sweet-talking somebody? He didn’t even know what to say anymore.
Mo Fang looked up and then craned his neck, kissing Li Ming’s chin. “You can’t complain. It was you who asked.”
Li Ming couldn’t help but laugh. “Did it look like I was going to complain?” He brushed through Mo Fang’s hair again and then leaned down, cupping his cheek with one hand, and giving him a kiss. “This is something you don’t have to wish for. I’m sure that it is already coming true after all. So, what else is there?”
Mo Fang pursed his lips and snuggled back up against Li Ming’s chest. “Then I want to be a famous model.”
Li Ming laughed again. “Well, I probably should’ve expected that.”
Mo Fang chuckled, feeling that Li Ming was right. It should have been obvious what he was going to wish for. “Then what about you?” To be honest, he couldn’t even start to think of something. Li Ming just seemed like the type of person that was very satisfied with what he had and who wouldn’t wish for anything more.
Li Ming did indeed need a moment to think about it. “To be honest, my wish might be the same as yours. Being with somebody that makes me happy and that I know I can make happy in return and then just going about our life together every day, sharing that happiness, looking toward a future together. That does sound like something I would like very much.” He lightly shook his head, feeling that Mo Fang had really made this into something more serious than he had intended. He had actually wanted to make a lighthearted joke. “Well, if we’re talking about things that are a little more out there, then I think I’d want to try skydiving.”
Mo Fang raised his brows in surprise and even lifted his head to look at Li Ming. “Why that?”
Li Ming grinned. This was exactly the type of thing he had thought of. Something that they could use to get to know each other better, to not just reaffirm what they knew already but to also find hidden things about the person they liked.
“Well, I did say before that I like sports, right? There isn’t that much that you can try in your everyday life. As I said, I regularly run and I’ll go to the gym, and sometimes I even go rock climbing. But every now and then, I wished that there was something a bit more exciting that you could do. But it’s not really something that you always have the option to do, you know?
“So if there was some time, then I think I would like to give this kind of thing a try. Actually, skydiving would only be one idea. I could imagine trying a lot of other sports too. It’s not necessarily that I want to pick it up as a hobby or something but I’d just like to give it a try. You know, do something new every once in a while.”
Mo Fang smiled and put his head on Li Ming’s shoulder again. “Well, maybe there will be an opportunity in the future.” Maybe, he’d even use this and help make it come true. After all, that was what a dedicated boyfriend would do, right?
