(Go As Far As You Can! (7)

“Besides, I remember that before Xiaokou left, she told you that all you needed to do was maintain a good relationship with Old Master Gu and never mess with Gu Yusheng.”

Hearing that, Qin Zhi’ai finally understood what she was trying to say.

Zhou Jing had seen Gu Yusheng in the hospital today, so she was worried that something had happened between Qin Zhi’ai and him, which might impede Liang Doukou acting as Mrs. Gu.

“You misunderstood. Today is Old Master Gu’s birthday, and when Gu Yusheng and I were on our way to celebrate with him, we got in a car accident. I saved him.” Qin Zhi’ai only told her what she cared about the most.

Zhou Jing nodded after a while and turned her head to smile at Qin Zhi’ai, saying, “Okay, I just want to remind you of the promise you made to us. For your loans to be paid every month, you still need to get that money from Xiaokou.”

Qin Zhi’ai was well aware of the warning in her seemingly gentle words.

If she wanted to get money from Liang Doukou, she had to keep away from Gu Yusheng.

She curved her fingertips and nodded calmly. “I know.”

After a short pause, Qin Zhi’ai continued, “If there’s nothing else, I’ll just be off.”

“Okay, bye.”

“Bye.” Qin Zhi’ai closed the door and walked into the yard of the villa before Zhou Jing had driven away.

Completely exhausted by the ups and downs of the night, with wounds all over her, Qin Zhi’ai stepped into the bedroom. Because she wasn’t allowed to take a shower, she directly got into bed after taking the pills prescribed by the hospital and immediately fell asleep.

The pain increased in the night, so she couldn’t sleep well and woke up several times. After midnight, she finally fell asleep again and had a dream about the past days.

How did the saying go?

The more you expect, the more you will be disappointed.

It’s true! Qin Zhi’ai thought.

The day that Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai were supposed to see a movie together was on the weekend, the hottest day yet that summer.

The prearranged time was three o’clock in the afternoon, but Qin Zhi’ai set off at one o’clock, the hottest time on the hottest day since summer had come.

When she arrived at the cinema by bus, it was only a quarter to two, leaving an hour and fifteen minutes before Gu Yusheng would come.

She wasn’t allowed to enter the cinema without a ticket, but she wasn’t sure which movie Gu Yusheng wanted to watch, so she waited in the shade.

It was very hot outside, and she sweat a lot, but she didn’t feel uncomfortable at all. On the contrary, as time got closer to three o’clock, she became even more excited and nervous. When it was only ten minutes to three, she blushed, thinking that she would see Gu Yusheng soon.
