Episode 35

(The Truth behind the Car Accident (5)

Gu Yusheng’s tone rose when he said those last three words, and then he snickered. Looking at her dashing husband, Qin Zhi’ai’s heart skipped a few beats, and her chest felt warm. Nothing could make two people happier in this world than when they absolutely trusted each other without having to say a word.

Even though Qin Zhi’ai didn’t need to explain herself, she still told Gu Yusheng the truth. “Those photos were shot for stills when I acted as Liang Doukou’s body double. The scenes look sexual, but they were actually set up to look that way by shooting from forced perspectives.”

“Okay,” Gu Yusheng said, although he sounded distracted and even standoffish when he responded to her. After a while, he cleared his throat before saying, “Xiao’ai, let’s go to Shanghai.”

“You want me to go with you on a business trip?”

“No, not on a business trip. I want us to move there.”

Qin Zhi’ai was shocked.

“Shanghai is close to Hangzhou. It’ll make it easier for you to visit your mom.”

Despite the reason he gave, Qin Zhi’ai then understood what his true intention was. His grandfather didn’t like her, and Gu Yusheng didn’t want her to be subjected to him, thus his suggestion that they move to Shanghai.

“I lived in Shanghai for a year. Both my subsidiary and my internet company are in Shanghai. I also have a few properties there. If you don’t like any of them, we could buy a river-view apartment near the Huangpu River. I checked out one a few days ago, and it was gorgeous.”

“Yusheng…” Qin Zhi’ai interrupted Gu Yusheng, who finally stood with his mouth shut. After a few seconds, she said in a low voice, “I like Beijing.”

Although only three simple words, Gu Yusheng thought he misheard her, but she continued. “We met in Beijing. Beijing holds a lot of our memories. I don’t want to leave here.”

Gu Yusheng kept quiet, as he now knew she had not gotten to her actual point yet.

“I’d worry about your grandfather if we moved Shanghai at this time. Not only will you have to worry about him, but so will I. We wouldn’t be able to enjoy ourselves in Shanghai. Don’t you think?

“I’ve thought all of this through since your grandfather came to see me this afternoon. I will try my best to win him over, no matter how much he doesn’t like me, because I want all of us to live happily.”

Gu Yusheng became emotional. What is the best love? It’s the love of a couple who cares about each other.

After a while, Qin Zhi’ai said, “Yusheng, let’s have dinner at your grandfather’s house tomorrow.” Gu Yusheng was shocked for a second and then held Qin Zhi’ai tighter in his arms.

Realizing that their conversation had made them both emotional, she tried to change the tone. “Yusheng, do you know how shameless I felt sitting still on the sofa and defying your grandfather when he told me to leave? Hey, can I call myself shameless? I should say instead ‘I had the guts to sit there,’ right? Yusheng, what are you doing?”

While Qin Zhi’ai was chattering, Gu Yusheng suddenly rolled her underneath him, causing her to scream and giggle. Not good at expressing himself in words, after a long time, he turned all his emotions into a simple statement. “Xiao’ai, I love you.”

This was the first time he had ever told her he loved her. Qin Zhi’ai looked like a little girl who had just been told she was loved for the first time. With a blushing face and batting eyelashes, she finally looked up and kissed the corner of Gu Yusheng’s mouth. He in turn took advantage of the opportunity to put her lower lip between his own lips.

After passionately kissing for some time, Gu Yusheng breathlessly whispered in her ear, “Xiao’ai, you’re almost three months pregnant, right? I’ll have Xiaowang contact the best obstetrician in the city tomorrow to make an appointment for you. We should have you checked out.”

Qin Zhi’ai shyly responded, “Okay.” Wanting to play with her, Gu Yusheng then bit her earlobe and joked, “My little brother is starving.”

The pregnancy checkup appointment had been scheduled for the following Wednesday. Before the appointment, Qin Zhi’ai had gone to Old Master Gu’s house three times with Gu Yusheng. The first time, she had not been invited inside and, the second time, Old Master Gu hadn’t been home. The third time she visited, she had been allowed in the house, but Old Master Gu had called Liang Doukou to come over.

To be honest, Qin Zhi’ai felt defeated after having been rejected so many times. She had to keep telling herself that she was doing it for Gu Yusheng.
