"I Adore Him" Episode 51


Episode 51

(Go As Far As You Can! (1)

Such a scene pricked his eyes like a needle, and he suddenly turned his head to one side, looking out the window.

It was quiet in the car, only the subtle sobbing sounds of Qin Zhi’ai drilling into Gu Yusheng’s ears and eventually into his heart. With a slight shiver of his fingertips on her waist, he suddenly turned his head toward her and stared at her tearful face for a second, then turned over and got off of her, sitting back in the driver’s seat.

She was still sobbing even though he had already left her body.

Gu Yusheng suddenly felt that the atmosphere inside the car was somewhat depressed, so he raised his hand and opened the window.

The hot wind in the summer night kept blowing in slowly, which annoyed him even more. He glanced at her rumpled dress in the rearview mirror, but that didn’t ease his annoyance. He pressed a switch angrily, and the window was closed again.

Then he took a cigarette out from his case, lit it, and started smoking.

Through the floating smoke in the air, he saw out of the corner of his eye that her tears were still dropping down.

Maybe it was because she had cried for a long time, but her shoulders twitched up and down. She kept murmuring. It was too soft and he hadn’t paid much attention to it, so he still didn’t know what she was murmuring about.

Gu Yusheng, with the unfinished cigarette between his lips, stared at the closest street lamp for a moment, then slightly moved his head towards Qin Zhi’ai.

“Let me go, please.”

“Please don’t… I… will keep myself away from you.”

“I will never badger you… You can do it wherever you want, but not in the street please…”

After listening to her murmuring for a while, Gu Yusheng finally heard some of the words.

It turned out that she was talking to him.

No change of expression showed on his face, but there was a subtle change in his eyes.

Was she finally conquered by me? From now on, she’ll never play any tricks to bother me, right?

It was great that he had finally achieved his goal… Gu Yusheng snuffed out the nearly-finished cigarette, and put another in his mouth. When he was about to light it with his lighter, he heard the girl next to him stammering out, “I swear that I will never badger you, and I promise you that I will keep myself far away from you, as far as I can…”

A shiver of Gu Yusheng’s hand deviated the lighter from the cigarette, and the flame burnt his fingertips.

The slight pain made him aware of his blunder, then he lost his temper suddenly, shouting, “Then go! Go as far as you can!”

His high pitch and angry voice immediately brought Qin Zhi’ai back to herself.
