I ADORE HIM
(I Will Sleep in Yusheng’s Room (7)
Qin Zhi’ai realized she had not cried for Gu Yusheng in a long time.
They had lost touch for the past eight years. At nights, when she thought about him, she wanted to cry, but she had suppressed it.
Qin Zhi’ai had held back her feelings for him for so long that the appearance of Liang Doukou crushed her. She curled up on the hotel bed and cried so loudly that others might hear her. She gripped the blanket hard and pressed her face into it.
Her phone she’d tossed on the bed started to ring.
She didn’t answer it even though it continued to ring. She finally grabbed it to check who was calling her. Through tears she saw it was a call from Xiaowang. She sniffed and pressed her lips together, forcing herself to calm down before swiping the screen to answer the call.
She still couldn’t talk normally, so she waited for Xiaowang to talk first.
After waiting for her to answer, Xiaowang said hastily, “Secretary Qin, can you notify all the managers and assistant managers from all departments that there will be a meeting on the second floor in the conference room in five minutes?”
A meeting now? Is something wrong?
Despite her questions, Qin Zhi’ai responded softly, “Okay,” as she did not want Xiaowang to notice her crying. After hanging up, she took several deep breaths, spoke out loud to herself so her voice was normal, and then called the managers.
After notifying everyone, Qin Zhi’ai went to the bathroom to wash her face before heading to the second floor with her laptop.
When she pushed open the conference room door, Qin Zhi’ai immediately saw Gu Yusheng and Xiaowang sitting at the head of the table.
“Secretary Qin.” Xiaowang greeted her first and pointed to the empty chair next to Gu Yusheng.
Qin Zhi’ai nodded and responded quietly, “Okay.”
She walked toward Gu Yusheng and pulled out the chair to take a seat. Gu Yusheng, who was typing on his laptop, slightly turned his head to look at her.
Qin Zhi’ai returned a look, saying, “Master Gu.”
Gu Yusheng slowed down his typing while looking into her eyes. Once he focused again on his laptop screen, he continued to type but with more pauses than before.
As Qin Zhi’ai turned on her laptop, Gu Yusheng suddenly asked, “What’s wrong with your eyes?”
He asked so softly that only Qin Zhi’ai heard his question.
She was shocked for a second before turning to Gu Yusheng.
Gu Yusheng stared at the laptop screen with a poker face for a while and continued to type. He asked, “Have you been crying?”
He had noticed her red eyes. Qin Zhi’ai blinked a few times and said quietly, “No, just used some eye drops.”
“Oh,” Gu Yusheng responded and continued to type. In a second, he stopped typing again.
He didn’t greet anyone walking into the conference room. He appeared distracted staring at his laptop screen. He suddenly turned his head sideways and leaned over to Xiaowang. He whispered to him so that no one could hear, “Tell the hotel manager that my room lock is broken.”
Didn’t Liang Doukou stay in his room? Wonderful… He broke the lock on the door to lock her in the room. She can stay in that room for a long time.
