I ADORE HIM
(Returning In Advance (5)
He wasn’t a professional jewelry designer, but he could draft something, although it looked almost as good as a professional design.
As Lu Bancheng stared at the design on the desk and became lost in thought, a red velvet box next to Gu Yusheng’s hand drew Lu Bancheng’s attention. Lu Bancheng heard Gu Yusheng’s unhurried voice. “I picked this diamond before you came. I’ll text you her ring size tonight.”
Lu Bancheng recovered himself from his daze. He opened the velvet box and saw a pink diamond the size of a small bird’s egg in it. Under the store light, it reflected beautifully.
Lu Bancheng looked at the box for a while and closed it before he looked up at Gu Yusheng. He knew the answer but asked anyway, “Are you going to propose to Xiaokou?”
“Yes.” Gu Yusheng nodded honestly. “But I hope you can keep it a secret for me.”
“Okay,” Lu Bancheng agreed without any hesitation. He saw the engraved “little troublemaker” on the ring when he folded the design.
Lu Bancheng frowned. He pointed at those words and asked, “Do you want to have this engraved on the ring?”
Gu Yusheng nodded slightly, but didn’t say anything back.
Lu Bancheng frowned harder, “Others leave the couple’s name, or sentiments of love on their rings. Why would you want to put little troublemaker on it? It kills the romance.”
Gu Yusheng looked up at him before Lu Bancheng could say the last syllable. He changed the subject. “Why are you suddenly proposing to Xiaokou? Didn’t you say you didn’t like her before? Did you think it through? Are you serious?”
“Plans change.” Gu Yusheng thought about what Lu Bancheng had said about engraving “little troublemaker” killing the romance. He found a good spot on the sofa and leaned back. He said slowly, “Just like you. You claimed to have lost your virginity by the time you were eighteen years old. You’re already twenty six years old now, and you still have to use your hand.”
“You…” Lu Bancheng didn’t know how to talk back to Gu Yusheng. He only reached his hand out and pointed at Gu Yusheng. He pointed at Gu Yusheng a few times, but nothing came out of his mouth.
He had set up trouble for himself. Why had he mentioned the engraving and ruined it?
If this had happened before, he might have been able to come back with, “You’re no different from me. You masturbate, too.” However, the situation had changed. He had set himself up for trouble.
Gu Yusheng looked away from Lu Bancheng contently after he won the argument. He looked at the clean and bright window for a few seconds. Suddenly, he became unusually serious and said, “The reason I want to engrave “little troublemaker” is that I don’t want others to call her the same name as I do.
“In terms of the proposal, I know what I’m doing. While I never wanted to be involved in a relationship or marriage before, I still wasn’t a player. Now that I want these things, I won’t play around at all.”
There was no emotion on his face when he talked. However, Lu Bancheng still sensed strong emotions from Gu Yusheng.
Certainly, some people looked cold. However, these people could be more emotional than others once they fell in love.
As Gu Yusheng’s friend, Lu Bancheng was happy for him. He might have been touched by their talk. He subconsciously wanted to congratulate Gu Yusheng. However, before he could tell Gu Yusheng congratulations, Gu Yusheng suddenly turned his head away from the window. Gu Yusheng said, “Never mind, it’s useless to talk about love with you. You still rely on your hands for your love life. You have no knowledge about it.”
What the f—! You only lost your virginity half a year earlier than me. Where is that pride coming from? Lu Bancheng thought to himself.
Lu Bancheng didn’t want to spend another minute with Gu Yusheng. He put away the design paper and walked out of the store without even saying goodbye to Gu Yusheng.
Gu Yusheng took his time finishing the tea left in his cup before he stood up and followed after Lu Bancheng.
Zhou Jing didn’t come out from behind the pole next to them until the two of them had walked into the elevator one after another.
