Chapter 143: Good Morning, Hubby! (1)
Xu Weilai could keenly sense the man gradually coming close, and her entire body tensed. However, his hand did not touch her. Instead, he grabbed her blanket.
Before she had a chance to react, her blanket had been snatched away.
Xu Weilai didn’t know what to say.
To avoid sharing a blanket with him, Xu Weilai had specially taken two blankets out. Naturally he had his own. So, why did he snatch hers away?
When she turned around and saw Gu Yu shamelessly hogging both blankets, she clenched her jaw in annoyance!
Was he that fat that he needed two blankets? There weren’t any other blankets left in the apartment anymore. Now that he was using the two remaining ones, what was she to do?
Although the apartment had a heater, they were in the middle of winter; it was still going to be cold if she had to sleep without a blanket!
She knew that even if Gu Yu had given in to his grandfather’s demands and spared her any humiliation in front of Mrs. Lin, that didn’t mean he’d give her an easy time when they were out of Mrs. Lin’s sight!
Xu Weilai clenched both her hands tightly into fists and stared fiercely at Gu Yu, who had fallen asleep happily while in possession of both blankets. How she wished she could just give him a swift kick and yank her blanket back!
But that was merely a wish. Her strength was no match for Gu Yu at all. Getting into a struggle with him in bed late in the night was a bad idea. It wasn’t as if Gu Yu was saving himself for Su Ziqian, and she’d be in grave danger if she brought the beast out in him. She chose to endure the cold.
Ha, fine! Use both blankets! Roast in them!
Xu Weilai drew circles in the air as she inwardly muttered her curses at him. Holding her pajamas close to her body, she curled herself up and laid back down on the bed.
The night was long, and Xu Weilai’s breathing gradually slowed down.
In the dark, the man suddenly opened his eyes and carefully turned around. He saw her figure surrounded by shadows and watched her. She was in her own dreamland. Because of the cold, she had subconsciously inched her way towards the heat.
Bit by bit, she rolled into his embrace.
Xu Weilai had spent the past few nights in the hospital sleeping in his arms. Therefore, the moment she leaned into his chest, she automatically reached her arms out and draped it over his waist. She shifted her head until she found a comfortable spot, then fell back into a deep sleep.
Gu Yu lowered his head and looked at the woman in his arms. With her forehead resting against his cold and empty heart, it slowly filled up with something he couldn’t describe.
Xu Weilai had originally assumed that her sleep would be affected by the cold in the night. Unexpectedly, her sleep had been pleasant, and the sun was already up when she opened her eyes. She stretched her back, satisfied with getting a good night’s sleep!
The other side of the bed was already empty. Gu Yu had already gotten up. She retrieved her cell phone and checked the time, and got out of bed immediately without lazing around any further.
She had to find someone at the airport today!
Xu Weilai emerged from the bedroom and headed into the hall after washing up, just in time to bump into Gu Yu, who had returned from his morning run.
Her first thought was to ignore him, but she caught sight of Mrs. Lin peeking out at them from the kitchen and could only force herself to look at Gu Yu. With a sweet smile, she said, “Good morning, H-Hubby!”
Mrs. Lin beamed at her approvingly like a mother hen!
She had no idea if her use of the word “hubby” had infuriated Gu Yu, but she saw his eyes darken as he stared at her. His lips were pressed into a thin line, and he didn’t say a word.
Xu Weilai had only used that term of endearment to convince Mrs. Lin that they were happily married and had regretted it immediately. As she observed Gu Yu, she was now afraid that he’d lose his temper. Their whole charade would have then been for nothing!
Her eyes began to shift uneasily. Just as she was about to say something to try to salvage the situation, she suddenly felt his arm tighten around her waist. Before she knew it, she was in his arms. She yelped aloud in surprise until her lips were seized by Gu Yu’s in a crushing kiss.
