"I Adore Him" Episode 38


Episode 38

(The Old Times of Him and Her (8)

“Mr. Gu, are you awake?” The housekeeper immediately stopped the work at hand when she saw Gu Yusheng walking down the stairs.

Gu Yusheng didn’t speak, only nodded slightly, and walked towards the dining room.

The housekeeper followed and did what Qin Zhi’ai had instructed her after Gu Yusheng sat down. First, she brought him a cup of warm tea with honey, then went into the kitchen and brought a bowl of the porridge cooked by Qin Zhi’ai.

Gu Yusheng almost finished the tea and put down the cup, then he took the porridge in front of him and stirred it with a spoon. He took a spoonful of porridge and put it into his mouth.

The porridge had cost Qin Zhi’ai a lot of time to cook, so it was delicious.

When Gu Yusheng put the porridge into his mouth, his eyebrows moved slightly. He continued to have a second spoonful.

The whole bowl of porridge was soon devoured.

The housekeeper, who was standing to the side, saw that he liked it and asked, “Mr. Gu, do you want to have one more bowl of porridge?”

Obviously, the porridge was very palatable to Gu Yusheng. He nodded slightly, and said unclearly from his throat, “Mhm.”

After drinking the porridge, Gu Yusheng’s stomach felt comfortable and he was more pleased. When he had drunk half of the second bowl, he asked unexpectedly, “Where did you learn how to cook this type of porridge?”

The housekeeper was shocked by his question. She realized that she had never cooked this kind of porridge before, even though she had been working for him for years. No wonder he had asked. Then she remembered the words Qin Zhi’ai had said to her before she left. The housekeeper was afraid that Gu Yusheng would notice any hesitation and doubt her, so she quickly nodded and lied, “Well, I saw it on TV several days ago and wrote it down, since it has a mild flavor and is good for the stomach.”

“Mhm…” Gu Yusheng responded casually, and continued to take another spoonful of porridge. This time, he swallowed very slowly, as if he was savoring it. When he had it all in his stomach, he suddenly stopped and frowned.

The housekeeper thought that Gu Yusheng had discovered something abnormal, so she was fearful.

Gu Yusheng didn’t say anything, silently staring through the French window at the lawn outside for a long time, until his eyes got sore and he blinked, continued to eat the porridge, and said leisurely, “The taste of it is so familiar. I think I’ve eaten it before.” Gu Yusheng shook his head and said no more about the porridge.

After breakfast, the housekeeper handed mouthwash to Gu Yusheng. When Gu Yusheng reached out to take it, a scene flashed through his mind. Last night when he was drunk, someone had handed him a cup of water…

He couldn’t remember if he couldn’t move himself, but that person had helped him sit on the bed and given him water. Later, it seemed that he had had a headache and that person had also massaged his head…
