I ADORE HIM
(A Lifetime Promise, Growing Old Together (2)
As the two were getting closer to them, Qin Zhi’ai’s expression changed as the faint smile on her pouting lips faded away. Detecting a sudden stiffness in her body, Gu Yusheng’s brows knitted together into a frown, and he turned his head in the direction she was looking.
Liang Doukou was wearing an immense pair of sunglasses that covered half of her face. If it weren’t for Zhou Jing tagging along beside her, Gu Yusheng wouldn’t have recognized that it was Liang Doukou wearing the glasses.
Carrying numerous bags from luxury store shopping, Liang Doukou and Zhou Jing continued walking toward the couple with their eyes fixed on them.
Once Gu Yusheng had ultimately clarified to the public that he had not married Liang Doukou, the two weeks of trending headline news she’d received had all amounted to nothing in the end. Netizens inevitably felt that they had been taken for a ride, and countless bloggers angrily criticized her for having manipulated the media. One top commenter called her “the most devious whore in the history of the entertainment industry,” which received a record number of Likes.
When the incident had blown up, Liang Doukou had been deeply impacted. Seeing how depressed she’d become, Zhou Jing had wanted to cheer her up, hence she had dragged Liang Doukou out of the house for a shopping spree.
Zhou Jing had spotted Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai the moment she and Liang Doukou had exited Joy City. Afraid that Liang Doukou would become unhinged if she were to see them, Zhou Jing quickly reached for Liang Doukou to drag her to the mall next to Joy City but, before she could grab her arm, Liang Doukou’s sharp eyes had already fixed on Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai.
Liang Doukou stopped in her tracks and stared straight at the couple. Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai were engaged in lover’s prattle and subsequently began to make out in public, making Liang Doukou feel as if someone had viciously struck her. Overcoming Zhou Jing’s attempts to hold her back, she charged toward the couple having lost all sense.
As her footsteps neared, Gu Yusheng turn to look at her. She couldn’t tell whether or not he had noticed her but, in the next instant, he casually turned his head back around and looked down at Qin Zhi’ai again. Holding her face in his hands, he lowered his head and sealed his lips on hers.
This time, his kiss was more delicate and more passionate than it had ever been before. He was completely immersed and gentle, and Liang Doukou had never known him to look or act like this. He was a completely different man from the Gu Yusheng she had known.
The kiss lasted twice as long as the previous one. Finally, he released Qin Zhi’ai longingly, and his thumb grazed her porcelain cheeks lightly as his eyes stared at her deeply and seriously, as if she was the only woman who existed in the world.
Staring at the scene before her, Liang Doukou gripped hard on the handles of her shopping bags, and her body began to tremble. She did not know what she wanted from them, but she could not stop herself from charging toward them.
