"I Adore Him" Episode 36


Episode 36

(The Old Times of Him and Her (6)

“Water… Water…” Gu Yusheng’s unclear murmuring dragged Qin Zhi’ai back from her memories.

Perhaps because she had recalled the past for a long time, she was stunned for a minute, then realized what Gu Yusheng was murmuring.

She quickly got up from the bed, found a cup, rushed downstairs, and poured him a cup of warm water.

Gu Yusheng was so drunk that he couldn’t drink the water on his own, so Qin Zhi’ai helped him. After that, she tucked him in and stared at him for a while. Then she stood up, walked toward the sofa, and sat down with a pillow in her arms. She took her phone out to check the time.

It was already three o’clock in the morning.

Once again, she recalled her memories of the two of them alone for more than two hours.

Yes, once again.

Over the years, she couldn’t remember how many times she had sunk into her memories, as if she lost her careful control when she was alone and was reminded of him by certain sentences, things, or scenes.

Her world was so far away from his that they couldn’t meet each other in the middle. Therefore, only through the memory of their old times could she tell herself that the man she loved was in her world once.

What she loved was not that period of time in the past, but him during that period.

At four o’clock in the morning, Qin Zhi’ai walked to his bedside and looked at him. The alcohol was almost digested, so he was in a deep sleep at that moment.

He vomited a lot before sleeping, so he’ll feel bad when he wakes up with nothing in his stomach.

The housekeeper will come in several hours, but it will take him some time to cook breakfast. Gu Yusheng will wake up before breakfast is ready.

Thinking this, Qin Zhi’ai gently went downstairs.

The housekeeper had stuffed the refrigerator with sufficient ingredients. Qin Zhi’ai picked some vegetables and lean meat, then diced them and put them into a pot. First, she boiled it on high heat, then stewed it on low heat.

When she had the porridge ready, it was already dawn.

Qin Zhi’ai knew that Gu Yusheng didn’t want to see her, and she was also afraid that he would see her face without make-up, so she turned off the stove, put the porridge into a container, and walked to the gate after changing her clothes upstairs.

She intended to call the housekeeper, but she saw the housekeeper walking into the yard when she had just left the villa.

Qin Zhi’ai turned around quickly, took a mask and a pair of sunglasses out of her handbag, and put them on with her back towards the housekeeper. Then, she turned back to greet the housekeeper.

Before Qin Zhi’ai went back, she hadn’t told the housekeeper, so the housekeeper hadn’t expected to see her. “Miss, you’re back?”

“Yeah.” Qin Zhi’ai nodded and told her what she had intended to. “He’s home, drunk, still sleeping. I cooked porridge for him, so remember to remind him eat it after he wakes up.”
