Season 3

Episode 65

(It Was Not Perfect, But The Only One (5)

He knew everything. Qin Zhi’ai didn’t deny it. She said yes in a low pitch.

Gu Yusheng’s heart suddenly pumped faster. His voice seemed to tremble a bit. “That night, I talked a lot. You held me like you are right now, right?”

How could he know I held him? It seems that he wasn’t as drunk as she thought, Qin Zhi’ai thought to herself.

She didn’t know Gu Yusheng had figured it out through logical reasoning. She didn’t dare to lie to him, so she nodded in acknowledgement. She continued, “You looked sad. I just, just wanted to make you feel better.”

Gu Yusheng went quiet again, but he held Qin Zhi’ai tighter.

It hadn’t been a dream that night. She had taken care of him. He had thought he dreamed that hug, but it was real.

Therefore, therefore…

Gu Yusheng couldn’t help holding her tighter, “It was you.”

Qin Zhi’ai was confused about what Gu Yusheng was saying to her. She couldn’t help frowning and asking, “What about me?”

“It was you.” It seemed that Gu Yusheng didn’t hear Qin Zhi’ai and murmured it again. He lowered his head and buried his face in her neck. He rubbed his face against her neck while the corners of his mouth curled up.

This little troublemaker is the girl who gave me comfort that dark night four years ago. What a coincidence! The girl I fell in love with was the one who gave me comfort, Gu Yusheng thought to himself.

Qin Zhi’ai saw no response from Gu Yusheng, so she stopped asking questions.

He held her tight for a long time, until his arms got sore, then he finally let her go out of his arms.

Qin Zhi’ai didn’t see his face until she was out of his arms. As she saw his pale face and the fine beads of sweat on his forehead, her face changed a bit. She raised her hand up to feel his forehead. It seemed a lot hotter than before. She immediately turned around to grab the bottled water and medicine she had left on the ground and passed them to Gu Yusheng. “Why are you so hot? Hurry up and take the medicine so we can go to the hospital later.”

“No need to go to the hospital. I’ll be fine with the medicine.” Gu Yusheng read the instructions off the fever medicine, took the pills out from the package, and swallowed them down. He saw Qin Zhi’ai squatting next to him. He took off his coat and laid it on the wet stairs. “Let’s sit a bit before we leave.”

Qin Zhi’ai didn’t turn his suggestion down. She took a seat on the wet clothes as he had asked.

Gu Yusheng leaned on the gravestone with a bottle of water in his hand. He looked up at the dark sky without talking.

Qin Zhi’ai quietly sat next to him without talking, either.

It was quiet, but it felt peaceful and comforting.

However, the quiet didn’t last long before Qin Zhi’ai’s cell phone rang. She immediately took it out and found a text from Lu Bancheng asking if Gu Yusheng was home.

Qin Zhi’ai remembered she had forgotten to let Lu Bancheng know she had found Gu Yusheng. She immediately looked down at her cell phone and texted Lu Bancheng back.

Gu Yusheng turned around to look at Qin Zhi’ai when her phone rang. He didn’t pay attention to who she was texting. He only watched her face from the side for a while. He didn’t look away until she put her phone away. He stared at the street light in a distance and called her name. “Little troublemaker.”
