I ADORE HIM
(I’ll Sleep In Yusheng’s Room (4)
Then Liang Doukou came close to Qin Zhi’ai, lowered her voice, and whispered a name of brand to her.
When she was about to move away, she paused again, then deliberately emphasized the word “Yusheng” and said, “Yusheng likes this brand.”
Qin Zhi’ai didn’t remember how she’d left Liang Doukou’s room.
All she knew was that she was already in the lobby of the hotel when she had finally regained consciousness.
The air outside the hotel was very cold, and there were gusts of cold wind blowing in. She rushed out of the villa hotel in a despondent way, as if she hadn’t been phased by the wind chill at all.
The villa was quite large, so it took Qin Zhi’ai nearly twenty minutes to get to the supermarket that Liang Doukou had mentioned.
Various brands of condoms were densely packed within a shelf that was four levels high. Qin Zhi’ai stared at them blankly for a long time before she finally spotted the brand that Liang Doukou had mentioned.
She took a box of condoms, went to the counter, paid, and waited for the change. Once the transaction had been completed, she mindlessly exited the hotel supermarket as if she’d been simply going with the motions, and headed for the hotel.
When entering the elevator, she met several familiar colleagues who had came back from the hot spring, and they each greeted her one after another.
Qin Zhi’ai was moving slowly for a long time before she finally regained control of her blank mind. She strained an obligatory, stiff smile, and stared at the red number on the elevator, subconsciously freezing again.
She didn’t press the button. When all the people in the elevator had left and the door had closed, it dropped back to the first floor. As some new people were entering the elevator, Qin Zhi’ai finally blinked and awoke from her empty daze, swiped the room card, and pressed the button of 18th floor.
Standing at the door of Gu Yusheng’s room, Qin Zhi’ai took several deep breaths before raising her hand and ringing the doorbell.
She stared at the closed door without blinking, expressionless, fearing that tears would fall at any moment.
After about a minute, the door opened. Qin Zhi’ai held her breath, took out the box of condoms and remaining change from her pocket, and handed them to Liang Doukou.
Liang Doukou gently took them and said, “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome.” Qin Zhi’ai had almost exhausted all her strength just to calmly utter these words.
Then she looked down to avoid Liang Doukou’s eyes, stepped back, turned around, and walked towards the elevator.
After returning to her room, Qin Zhi’ai’s body felt entirely weak, and she immediately collapsed onto the bed.
With glazed eyes, she stared at the ceiling for a while until her cell phone suddenly rang from her pocket.
After a long time, she finally took out her cell phone and glanced at the display, then she noticed that there were seven unanswered calls, all from Xiaowang.
It turned out that she hadn’t heard her cell phone ring for a long time…
When Qin Zhi’ai was about to return Xiaowang’s call, her cell phone rang again. She stared at the screen and the words “Big BOSS” flashed through her eyes.
Xiaowang couldn’t get through to me, so now, Gu Yusheng is calling?
Qin Zhi’ai pursed her lips and tried to calm herself before answering. Before she raised the phone to her ear, Gu Yusheng’s cold voice came through the phone. She suspected that it was just an illusion, as his voice sounded a little anxious. “Where are you?”
Qin Zhi’ai took a deep breath, then pretended to be at ease. “I am in the room now.”
After answering, she realized that the reason Gu Yusheng asked that question was because she hadn’t answered any of Xiaowang’s calls, so she quickly thought of a lie. “I was in the shower.”
