I ADORE HIM
(The Unforgettable Deep Love (1)
“I’ll call over to make a reservation.” Lu Bancheng grabbed his phone to look up the number.
Just as the call went through, someone knocked on Gu Yusheng’s office door.
It was Gu Yusheng’s secretary with a few files and a box in her arms. She put them on the desk in front of Gu Yusheng and quietly explained something to him.
Gu Yusheng listened without speaking and finally nodded to her, indicating that he understood.
The secretary then pointed to the package. “The front desk just sent this upstairs for you.”
“Okay,” Gu Yusheng casually responded. He pointed at an empty spot on his desk to show her where to put the package and then quickly typed out an email.
Once he had sent it, the secretary left his office. Lu Bancheng was providing names and phone numbers to the person on the other end of the line.
Gu Yusheng was rubbing his sore neck when his eyes landed on the package on his desk. He frowned when he saw his name as both the sender and the recipient.
He had never sent himself a package, and this one had his personal phone number, which only a few people knew.
Gu Yusheng’s fingers went stiff on his neck for a second until he found a knife to open the package. He recognized the gift box immediately when he opened it.
He pressed his lips together and picked up the gift box. As expected, he saw the ring he had bought for little troublemaker.
He had gone to the backyard that day to look for it but couldn’t find it.
The housekeeper had asked him out of curiosity what he was looking for, and when he told her she suddenly realized what was going on. She told him his wife had found the ring on the day he went to Shanghai on business.
Back then little troublemaker had still lived in his house. This ring was sent back to him now, which meant the sender had to be her.
Gu Yusheng suddenly raced out of his office, found his secretary, and asked, “Who delivered this package?”
He immediately recalled that the front desk had taken delivery of the package. Without waiting for her answer, he sprinted to the elevator, got downstairs, and ran to the front desk, where the package had been received.
The front desk staff, who were in charge of taking packages for the entire company, knew the mailman and quickly called him.
They eventually tracked down the courier service that had initially received the package. The clerk there remembered a girl sending the package, but she had been wearing a face mask so he couldn’t describe her beyond that.
The front desk staff passed the information to Gu Yusheng.
Gu Yusheng contemplated the information for some time before responding, “Okay.” He turned around and walked back to the elevator to return to his office.
Once there, Lu Bancheng was just getting off the phone. Seeing Gu Yusheng enter, he asked in confusion, “What happened? Why’d you run out in such a rush?”
Gu Yusheng sat at his desk, stared at the gift box, and finally said, “Nothing.”
“Oh,” Lu Bancheng responded. He was about to tell Gu Yusheng that he had made the reservation for 7:00 p.m., but before he did he glanced inside the package.
Isn’t that the customized ring I traveled to the U.K. to bring back to Gu Yusheng?.
