Season 5

Episose 59

(Hello, My Name Is Qin Zhi’ai (9)

Qin Zhi’ai’s phone rang again.

It was from the conference room. She picked it up and answered in a professional tone, “Are you ready? Okay, I will take Mr. Gu over right now.”

After hanging up, Qin Zhi’ai turned around to face Gu Yusheng and said, “Mr. Gu, your speech is about to start. May I take you there now?”

Gu Yusheng sat still on the sofa with a cigarette between his fingers. He stared at her eyes.

He looked quite different than before. He seemed neither as cold nor as aloof as he had in the past. His eyes were bright, and he looked sharper and more energetic.

Qin Zhi’ai was tensing up under Gu Yusheng’s gaze. She curled her fingers and pulled them into fists. She started to look flustered but maintained her calm. After no response, she said again, “Mr. Gu, your speech will start soon. We should leave now.”

She finally lowered her head to break his stare, but Gu Yusheng continued searching for something. He watched her face for a long time before finally stubbing out his cigarette and standing up.

Qin Zhi’ai sighed relief under her breath that they were going. She looked up with a smile at Gu Yusheng and gestured toward the exit. Gu Yusheng intensely stared into her eyes.

She blinked and tried to remain calm, saying politely, “Mr. Gu, this way please.”

Gu Yusheng didn’t move. His eyes remained fixed on hers, and a confused look took over his face.

She made him feel different, and she had a voice and a look. Because he loved little troublemaker, he found it difficult to believe he might not recognize her face. He didn’t usually have a problem remembering people with whom he was familiar.

He did not know why he could only remember little troublemaker’s eyes and not her face. He thought it might be because she looked like Liang Doukou.

By only looking into Qin Zhi’ai’s eyes, and not her face, did she look familiar to him. Her eyes were beautiful, almost no different than those of little troublemaker.

With his eyes still fixed on hers, he thought her eyelids were not as wide as those of little troublemaker, and the inner corners of her eyes were not so long either, but her arched brows were exquisite. The distance between her eyes was perfect, although perhaps wider than that between little troublemaker’s eyes. The outer corners were not pointing as high, either. She did not look as sexy, but she did look more feminine and pure.

She also seemed to be a lot younger than little troublemaker.

“Mr. Gu?” Qin Zhi’ai reluctantly called him again.

Gu Yusheng blinked. He looked one more time at her face, nodded, and then looked away from her.

Qin Zhi’ai walked in front with Gu Yusheng following her.

On the way to the conference room, they passed a smaller one. Inside, Qin Zhi’ai saw Xiaowang talking with the school administrators. She realized now why Xiaowang had disappeared. He went to socialize with the school administrators on behalf of Gu Yusheng.
