"I Adore Him" Episode 33


Episode 33

(The Old Times of Him and Her (3)

Seeing the green tea on the table, Gu Yusheng frowned, and looked up at her with confused eyes. After about five seconds, he seemed to figure something out, and picked up the green tea emotionlessly.

When Qin Zhi’ai thought he had accepted the green tea, she was delighted, but still showed none of her feelings on her face.

Gu Yusheng unscrewed the bottle cap, but he didn’t drink it, giving it back to her.

Qin Zhi’ai was shocked by his actions and didn’t know how to respond.

At just that moment, Gu Yusheng’s phone rang, and he answered after seeing the caller’s name.

After he hung up the phone, Qin Zhi’ai finally figured out why he did it. He was wearing earphones, so he might have misunderstand what she said. She tried to explain: “I’m not…”

She didn’t even speak a complete sentence, because he suddenly got up, took his coat, and ran out of the Internet cafe without a word.

He would never know that the girl standing next to him that day was, in fact, going to say, “I’m not asking you to unscrew the bottle cap for me. I just wanted to give it to you.”

Gu Yusheng’s impression on Qin Zhi’ai was that he was the kind of boy who couldn’t be more perfect. He was as noble, elegant, fresh, and controlled as the male characters in the Japanese mangas that she read secretly in class.

However, Wu Hao said that Gu Yusheng blinded people with his beautiful face and his temperament. He was nowhere close to perfection or innocence. Among his group of friends, he was the most playful, bad-tempered, and impatient. He smoke like a chimney and always said embarrassing things on purpose. Of course, although he had tons of bad habits, girls still described him as unrestrained and attractive instead of bad, just because of his perfect face.

Qin Zhi’ai believed her own opinion, not what Wu Hao had told her.

Until Xu Wennuan’s birthday, when everyone was celebrating with her in a private karaoke room, she saw the real Gu Yusheng for the very first time, and finally learned why Wu Hao claimed that he always said cruel things on purpose.

That day, Gu Yusheng seemed to be in a very good mood. He responded to anyone who spoke to him.

Afterwards, everyone had had lots of fun and was drunk. Someone proposed dancing in a club outside. In the blink of an eye, everyone had left the room except him and her.

He leaned on the sofa drowsily, playing with his phone.

The faint light of the screen highlighted, but also softened, the lines on his face.

After a while, the phone might have run out of battery, since the screen suddenly went dark.

He tossed the phone aside, reclined on the sofa with his hands crossed behind his head, and closed his eyes for a rest.

Qin Zhi’ai thought that he wouldn’t notice her, so she squatted in front of the table, pretended to eat her birthday cake, and peeped at Gu Yusheng from time to time.

While she was glancing at Gu Yusheng, he suddenly opened his eyes, and yelled at her. “Hey!”
