"I Adore Him" Episode 28


Episode 28

(Playing Games with Me? (8)

Qin Zhi’ai was facing Gu Yusheng’s shoes.

The end table was very low, so she couldn’t move at all under it.

She stayed stiffly still, staring at Gu Yusheng’s shoes. After a long time, when she thought that she might be stuck there until her death, Gu Yusheng’s shoes finally moved.

He stood up and stumbled towards the bathroom. Qin Zhi’ai saw him bumping into the stool when he passed by her dresser.

It seemed that he couldn’t feel the pain, because he didn’t make a sound, but stopped a short distance away for a while, then bypassed the stool and entered the bathroom.

The door of the bathroom wasn’t closed, but there was the sound of water streaming.

Was he going to take a bath?

Qin Zhi’ai grasped the precious opportunity and crawled out little by little from under the end table.

As soon as she got her head out from underneath the end table, she opened her mouth and gave a sigh of relief.

Before the air was inhaled into her lungs, she glanced at Gu Yusheng’s shoes stepping out of the bathroom.

She was so scared that she immediately shrank back.

At the moment Qin Zhi’ai had just returned to her hiding spot, Gu Yusheng made it to the end table. This time, he didn’t sit down, but stooped to take something from it, then took two steps back and fell down on the bed.

There was the sound of tinfoil, then she heard a sound a lighter being flicked. The bedroom was filled with the heavy smell of cigarettes.

The room had become very quiet. Qin Zhi’ai, hidden under the end table, couldn’t see what was happening and dared not act rashly.

Time passed by bit by bit. As the quiet night passed, Qin Zhi’ai creeped out slowly.

She didn’t dare come out directly, so she first stretched her head out and glanced at the bed.

Gu Yusheng was lying on the bed, his clothes on and eyes closed.

He was quiet and not snoring. Qin Zhi’ai wasn’t sure if he was asleep, so she stared at him for a while. Seeing that he didn’t move, she continued to sneak out.

Qin Zhi’ai was afraid that he wasn’t asleep and would suddenly open his eyes, so she didn’t dare to stand up, but crawled along the bed towards the door.

When she had almost reached the door, she heard him making a strange voice behind her.

She was terrified and stopped on the floor.

Gu Yusheng, is he awake?

Qin Zhi’ai didn’t dare to look back, and her back soon became wet with cold sweat.

Qin Zhi’ai was praying that he wouldn’t turn his head towards her. Meanwhile, she was wriggling towards the door like a worm.

Finally she had made it to the door… She sighed slightly, but when she was about to open the door, she heard Gu Yusheng’s voice.

This time, Gu Yusheng said several words in a row. Hearing them, Qin Zhi’ai almost exploded in anxiety. When she thought she was dead, she finally recognized a word from Gu Yusheng’s mouth, “Water.”
