I ADORE HIM
(Mango Juice, Little Troublemaker, Final Destination (2)
After gazing at Qin Zhi’ai for a long time, Gu Yusheng shook his head and replied calmly, “Nothing.”
She was not sure if she had completely convinced Gu Yusheng about how she got her scar. She smiled and nodded slightly at Gu Yusheng before saying, “Okay.”
As Gu Yusheng prepared to leave, he said calmly, “I’m going upstairs to change clothes for dinner. See you in the lobby.”
“Okay.” Qin Zhi’ai smiled naturally and gracefully as usual, even though she didn’t know what he was thinking. To see his face again, she pointed to the bandage Gu Yusheng had applied and sweetly said, “Thank you.”
Gu Yusheng stared into her eyes for a moment and then turned around and left her room.
When the door was closed, Qin Zhi’ai was unsure of what just happened. She collapsed in bed, exhausted, then spread her palms, discovering they were covered in sweat.
Gu Yusheng stood at the door with his eyes twinkling for a few seconds. He turned to glance at the closed door and stepped away.
The next day, Gu Yusheng took a plane at 2:00 p.m. from Hainan to Beijing. He arrived at Beijing Capital International Airport at exactly 5:00 p.m.
On the way back to the city, Gu Yusheng answered a phone call and talked for more than half an hour. After hanging up the phone, he looked at his wristwatch and suddenly said, “Drive to the Peking Hotel. I’m going to attend a dinner party there.”
He paused and then added, “Have Secretary Qin come with me.”
The roads were so congested that by the time they arrived at the hotel they were almost the last ones to arrive.
The dinner guests were surprised by the appearance of Qin Zhi’ai since Gu Yusheng had never brought a female secretary to this kind of occasion. Qin Zhi’ai attracted a lot of attention.
Many guests wanted to have a drink with Qin Zhi’ai, but whenever Gu Yusheng saw this happening, he helped Qin Zhi’ai to excuse herself.
During dinner, Gu Yusheng went to the bathroom with Xiaowang but then only Gu Yusheng returned. Not too long after that, Gu Yusheng said his goodnights and took Qin Zhi’ai to leave with him before the festivities were over.
Because Gu Yusheng was a bit drunk, Qin Zhi’ai drove the car.
Gu Yusheng had rarely gone back to the villa where little troublemaker had lived since she’d left him. This thought made him incredibly sad inside.
But when Qin Zhi’ai started the car and asked him where to go, he gave the address of the villa.
Qin Zhi’ai, who had lived there for more than half a year, naturally knew the way, yet she carefully typed the address into her phone for navigation.
At night, the traffic of Beijing tended to be smooth. Gu Yusheng sat in the front passenger seat with his eyes closed. When they almost arrived at the entrance to the villa, Gu Yusheng opened his eyes unexpectedly, looked out of the window, and said, “Stop on the side of the road.”
Qin Zhi’ai didn’t understand why but she did as he said.
After she parked the car, Gu Yusheng said, “I feel so sick now. I’d like to have a cup of coffee. You come with me.” Gu Yusheng abruptly got out of the car and headed for a coffee shop down the street. Qin Zhi’ai locked the car and hurried to keep up with him.
By the time she caught up with him at the coffee shop, Gu Yusheng had already chosen a good place for them to sit.
She stepped forward and called out “Master Gu,” just as a waiter brought two glasses of mango juice.
Gu Yusheng pointed to the opposite seat, giving Qin Zhi’ai a nod to sit there, then he pushed a glass of mango juice toward her. “Have a taste of the mango juice. It’s the best I’ve ever had in Beijing.”
