I ADORE HIM
(It Was Not Affection, But Deep Love (10)
The voice was faint yet clear, and Qin Zhi’ai couldn’t have been more familiar with it.
It was Gu Yusheng’s voice.
Freezing in place suddenly, Qin Zhi’ai stopped like one of her pressure points had been hit.
The policemen had gradually left, and the riverside was growing more silent as it became closer to daybreak.
Qin Zhi’ai held her breath, waiting for a long time. However, there were no any other sounds except that of the whistling wind and the running water.
She thought maybe she’d had an auditory hallucination. She blinked, then regained her composure. She moved her lips, and hardly had she been ready to call “Gu Yusheng” again when she heard a weak voice. “Little troublemaker…”
Upon hearing this, Qin Zhi’ai froze again before she stepped forward.
Qin Zhi’ai clearly felt like her heart had stopped beating at this moment. It was like her soul had been stolen away by someone. After her mind had gone blank for half a minute, her eyelashes began to tremble rapidly.
It was real. She had been right. It was really him, and Gu Yusheng was still alive…
Qin Zhi’ai turned her head excitedly, looking at her surroundings. Her voice was extremely unsteady as she called out, “Gu… Gu Yusheng? Is… Is that you?”
No one answered.
Qin Zhi’ai clenched her fists and focused all her attention on listening without saying anything.
About half a minute later, there was an intermittent voice coming from the grass that was so tall it could reach a person’s waist. “It’s me.”
Qin Zhi’ai’s eyes were as bright as if they were carrying all the moonlight and starlight from the distant horizon that hadn’t faded away just yet. She nearly staggered, rushing towards the grass.
Her trembling hands pushed away clumps of grass. Then, in the withered grass under a big tree, she found Gu Yusheng lying on the grass, unable to move.
His white shirt was dyed red with his blood. The wound on his leg was so deep that parts of of the flesh twisted outwards and had become a white color after had been soaked in the water, which was extremely dreadful to look at.
His face was frighteningly pale, and his lips were also bloodless. He didn’t have his eyes open. His chest heaved so badly that he seemed like he was having difficulty breathing.
Suddenly, she stood as still as a stone, staring at Gu Yusheng. Her tears were uncontrollably falling down her cheeks.
“See you later.”
See you later… Gu Yusheng, I can finally “see you” now.
Do you know how scared I was last night? I almost couldn’t stand it anymore. I was so frightened, and I was so afraid of losing you.
Gu Yusheng, I’m finally “seeing you” after all.
Qin Zhi’ai moved her mouth, wanting to say something, but she couldn’t even utter a word, because her mood was already swinging violently.
In the next second, she had almost scrambled towards Gu Yusheng. She squatted down and reached her hand out to touch his face.
He had a fever, and the temperature of his body was terrifyingly high. After realizing this, she felt so sad that her tears grew more intense. She buried her head in his neck without thinking. She wanted to tell him so many things that had been lingered in her mind thousands of times, but finally, all of them turned into just a couple words. “Gu Yusheng…”
Gu Yusheng was taking each breath heavily. He had heard her voice and felt her existence, but he wanted to see her or raise his hand to touch her. However, he couldn’t even open his eyes, let alone move. In the end, he could only muster all his strength to move his lips, squeezing out a few words. “It was not affection, but deep love…”
