I ADORE HIM
(Check Her File (19)
“Okay.” Even though Qin Zhi’ai had not finished her explanation, Gu Yusheng understood. He then asked, “Where do you want to go?”
“What?” Qin Zhi’ai looked shocked.
What does he mean? Where do I want to go now? Or where do I want him to take the team?
Gu Yusheng suddenly realized his question was unclear, so he rephrased it. “How about we have the team-building event this weekend? You can recommend where we’ll stay and dine and plan the activities.”
“Oh, okay,” Qin Zhi’ai said.
Now that she had agreed, Gu Yusheng turned around and closed his eyes without speaking more.
Qin Zhi’ai looked outside the window while silence enveloped the car.
She stared out for some time, not blinking, deep in thought. Her eyes began to hurt, so she blinked and looked away from the window.
Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a familiar sight. Her body became tense, but she relaxed enough to move her head slowly to look more closely.
A pair of fluffy white bunnies huddled on the passenger’s seat.
When she had been Liang Doukou’s body double, Gu Yusheng had taken her out for dinner, and they’d gone for a walk when they got home. Along the way, they had passed a street vendor with a pair of white bunnies. She found them so cute she bought them, but she had left them with Gu Yusheng.
She hadn’t thought of those bunnies for some time until now. She did not think that Gu Yusheng would have kept that pair of white bunnies.
Qin Zhi’ai turned toward Gu Yusheng.
He seemed to sense her stare. His eyelashes fluttered and he opened his eyes.
Qin Zhi’ai immediately looked away and returned to staring at the night scenery outside the window. The neon lights flickered on her face, making her look like she was in a dream.
Gu Yusheng watched her for a while before he looked away and saw that pair of white bunnies on the passenger seat.
Qin Zhi’ai noticed that Gu Yusheng had looked away from her, so she subtly looked at the rearview mirror. Through the reflection, she saw Gu Yusheng looking down absentmindedly. Although calm looking, his face was sad.
Focusing on his expression, Qin Zhi’ai felt Gu Yusheng was remembering something sad, something extraordinarily sad.
After gathering the employees’ opinions, Qin Zhi’ai decided to have the team-building event at a hot springs resort village.
They all left the company on Friday afternoon and arrived at the village at 5:30 p.m. It took another hour for everyone to get checked in.
After dinner at the resort’s restaurant, everyone headed to the hot springs in groups.
Qin Zhi’ai skipped the springs while on her period and took a walk in the village instead. She quickly became cold and returned to the hotel.
As she waited for the elevator, one of the company employees approached her. “Secretary Qin, someone is looking for Master Gu. They are in the waiting area at the front desk. Can you go help them?”
