"I Adore Him" Episode 37


Episode 37

(The Old Times of Him and Her (7)

Qin Zhi’ai had said “he” instead of Gu Yusheng’s name, which confused the housekeeper for a second, until the housekeeper realized who “he” was, and responded, “Okay, Miss.”

Because she wore a mask, her voice was a bit unclear. “The hangover will make him feel very bad and he will definitely suffer from a severe headache. You can make him a cup of tea with honey and he will feel better after drinking it.”

“Miss, I’ll remember,” the housekeeper answered. When she realized that it was still early, she asked, “Miss, it’s extremely early, are you going to work?”

In actuality, she had no work to do. She was afraid that Gu Yusheng would get mad at her if he saw her when he woke up. Therefore, she lied to the housekeeper and nodded. “Yes.”

The housekeeper thought what she said was true. “Then, Miss, do you have anything else to tell me?”

After making sure that she had told her everything she wanted to, Qin Zhi’ai shook her head gently.

She knew that the housekeeper had been working for Gu Yusheng for years and knew him better than she did, and could take better care of him than she could, but after shaking her head, Qin Zhi’ai still added worriedly, “Take good care of him.”

“Please rest assured, Miss.”

Qin Zhi’ai lowered her head and said nothing.

The housekeeper pointed to the house. “Then, I’ll go in.”

“Okay,” Qin Zhi’ai responded. When the housekeeper pulled the door open, she shouted at the her again.

She knew that the housekeeper had turned back to look at her, but she didn’t look back at him. She stared at the blooming jasmine tree in the yard silently for a while and said, “Don’t tell him that I came.”

The housekeeper was shocked and asked without thinking, “Why?”

Thanks to the mask and sunglasses on her face, her sadness and disappointment was well hidden. At the time, Qin Zhi’ai tried to keep her tone steady, and said indifferently as if she was saying something irrelevant, “Because if he knows, he won’t eat it.”

The housekeeper knew how much Mr. Gu hated her, but was still as shocked as she had been when Qin Zhi’ai had asked her for a contraceptive. She froze and didn’t know what to say.

Compared to the housekeeper, Qin Zhi’ai remained unemotional and walked away after saying her thanks.

Gu Yusheng woke up after a while.

The hangover made his head hurt badly. He opened his eyes and tried very hard to get up from the bed. He sat in the bed for a while, then got out and went into the bathroom.

A hot bath made Gu Yusheng feel a lot more comfortable. He took out leisure wear from the dressing room and put it on. When he was about to walk out of the bedroom, he suddenly remembered that he had vomited last night when he was very drunk.

Gu Yusheng stopped and looked at the bed. The clean sheets and carpet showed no trace of being vomited on.

Am I wrong?

Gu Yusheng frowned slightly, shifted his gaze, opened the door, and went downstairs.
