"Your hair is disheveled, and you look beautiful. I will get jealous if other men see you."
As soon as he finished speaking, Ye Erruo's head buzzed. Her face was so red that it was almost burning.
Upon seeing her silly expression, Mo Jiangye let out a low chuckle. His voice was low and sexy, making her feel even more dumbfounded.
The sound outside the door was getting closer and closer. Mo Jiangye pulled the silly woman and hid inside the box.
The door was then kicked open.
"Search them! Search every single one of them. They must be in a room here. We must find them."
Ye Erruo covered her mouth and hid in the box fearfully, not daring to make a single sound.
The louder the search was, the faster her heart beat. Her heart seemed to jump in her throat. If they were discovered, the consequences would be unimaginable.
"Don't be afraid, Baby Ruo." Mo Jiangye leaned close to her ear and comforted her gently.
His strong heartbeat echoed clearly in her ears, and his warmth enveloped her in the box.
The sound of someone looking for someone else could be heard outside. There were many big boxes in the innermost room that were filled with jewelry, paintings, and expensive items, so it would cause a huge commotion if one flipped through them.
The box that Mo Jiangye and Ye Erruo were hiding in was the smallest and most conspicuous one on the outside. Thus, they did not expect them to open it.
Ye Erruo did not even realize that her hands were wrapped around the man's waist.
She clutched his clothes tightly with both hands and huddled nervously next to him. She was so nervous that she broke out in cold sweat and concentrated on listening to the commotion outside. Every time something was thrown to the ground, her eyelids would twitch.
Mo Jiangye's eyes darkened. There was a deep, unfathomable look in his eyes. Not long ago, she had liked pulling his shirt.
Every time she'd felt nervous and shy, she would make such a small move.
She was so close to him that she was obediently nestled in his arms. It had been a long time since they'd last met, and the uncontrollable impulse and longing in him kept surging out.
Above them were many soft silk quilts. The originally small area was becoming increasingly stuffier. Ye Erruo shifted uncomfortably to the side.
However, the space was so small that she would touch Mo Jiangye no matter how hard she tried.
"Baby Ruo, don't move." His voice was extremely soft.
The air in the box was becoming less and less. There was even a thick blanket over their heads. Ye Erruo felt like she was going to suffocate soon.
The box above her head was then opened.
Ye Erruo was so nervous that she trembled as she was breathing. She felt as if she was about to be caught. She could not help but tremble.
Mo Jiangye could no longer resist the longing he felt.
Ye Erruo widened her beautiful eyes in disbelief. H-how could he treat her like that at this moment?
The lid on top of her head was opened, and she casually flipped it twice before closing it again.
Ye Erruo no longer dared to struggle. Her face was as pale as a sheet, as if her men had been caught.
"Sir, there's nothing here."
"Check the next room and lock all the rooms that have been checked!"
Normally, no one would dare to barge into their harem's palace, so they would never lock all the rooms. Who would dare barge into two little thieves who were courting death?
