I ADORE HIM
(The Azure Sky Awaits the Preceding Rain, Like How I Wait for You (4)
From behind, Gu Yusheng appeared to be calm and indifferent. He showed no sign of the bad mood that Xiaowang had witnessed earlier.
Gu Yusheng was aware that someone had entered his office, but he didn’t bother to look over.
Lu Bancheng placed a stack of papers on his desk and said, “These documents require your signature.” Gu Yusheng continued to ignore him.
Leaning against his desk, Lu Bancheng casually flipped through the documents that Xiaowang had tasked him to bring in. Finding a few pressing ones, he said, “These are pretty urgent. Even if you’re not feeling up to it, you should not hold up on your…”
Before he could complete his sentence, Lu Bancheng suddenly noticed a letter within the pile of papers and stopped what he was saying. When he flipped the letter over, he saw that it was written for a “Mr. S.” He turned and glanced at Gu Yusheng’s back before continuing, “…there’s also a letter.”
Gu Yusheng spun his head around in an instant and, with only a glance at the letter that Lu Bancheng was holding, his lifeless appearance completely disappeared from his face. He quickly walked up to Lu Bancheng and snatched it before Lu Bancheng had a chance to react.
Tearing open the envelope as he walked back to the bay window, he began to read the letter with his back facing Lu Bancheng.
“A new beginning is definitely important to me.
“He is so important that I would be willing to sacrifice my own life to defend him.
“There isn’t much that I ask for. I merely hope that he will be healthy and happy.
“As long as I am capable, I will do my best to satisfy all his wants.
“I will accompany him for as long as I live.
“Because, Mr. S, you know what? It is the only happiness that I can grasp onto in my life now.
“Mr. S, I’m not sure how to reply to your first question. All I know is that, right now, I’m trying my best to forget him.”
So, to her, the new life is as important as her own life.
So, she is trying to forget about me…
Gu Yusheng’s heart suddenly felt heavy, and waves of pain washed over him.
His head seemed numb, and he only reacted when Lu Bancheng walked over to take a peek at his letter. Folding it up on reflex, he stashed it into his pocket.
“Brother Sheng, the documents on the table…” Lu Bancheng dropped him a reminder as he noticed Gu Yusheng preparing to leave the office.
Halting in his path, Gu Yusheng cast one look at the documents on the desk and walked over. Five documents, five reviews of those documents, and five signatures—Holding onto his pen, it took him some time before he finished all of them.
Placing his pen down, Gu Yusheng took the car key that he’d placed on his desk earlier and walked out of his office without clearly hearing what Lu Bancheng was saying. Entering the elevator, he took it to the parking garage in the basement.
Gu Yusheng did not know where he was heading. He drove aimlessly until people started getting off work and traffic started to get heavy, when eventually he parked his car on the side of the road. Looking through his car window, he noticed that this was the road he passed by almost every night for the past few days.
Straight ahead, approximately 600 feet away, was the apartment where she lived.
The words that she had written in her letter surfaced clearly in his mind once more.
In that instant, the chaotic noise outside of the car window felt very distant from him.
