As she continued to wait, Xu Weilai grew so bored that she started to feel sleepy. Thinking that Gu Yu wouldn’t finish working soon, she leaned against the sofa and decided to rest for a short moment.
It might’ve been because Gu Yu’s presence made her feel at ease, but when she closed her eyes, she immediately fell asleep and didn’t manage to wake up in time.
Gu Yu looked up from the file in his hand. He could finally look at Xu Weilai without any worry. He stared at her for a moment before standing up and walking around his office table with his long legs.
Xu Weilai’s hands were decked below her cheeks as she slept against the handle of the sofa. A few strands of hair had fallen and covered her eyes.
The man half-squatted in front of her and used his fingertips to hook the strands of hair. After tucking them behind her ears, he slowly stroked her face with his fingers. He poured all his longing into this careful little movement.
He didn’t want to see her because he wanted to give himself some time to think carefully about what he should do.
Xu Weilai didn’t want this marriage, to begin with; in the past, she was genuinely hurt by his heartless behavior. It was understandable for her to want to escape from this marriage.
At first, he thought that he had the chance to make up and redeem himself. However, he now realized that everyone had to pay the price for the things they had done. No one was exempt from this rule.
Whenever he thought of letting her go and facing a future without Xu Weilai, however, his world once again plunged in neverending darkness. A deep sense of insuppressible fear began growing in his heart…
He hadn’t seen Xu Weilai for a while, but he still didn’t have an idea what he should do.
Should he agreed to Xu Weilai’s request and let her be free, or should he continue being selfish and keep her close beside him?
He was always decisive and resolute when it came to doing anything else. Once Xu Weilai became involved, however, several emotions arose: his hesitation, his anxiousness, and his worry of losing something.
Gu Yu’s dark eyes turned deeper. He opened his mouth and said in a soft low tone, “What should I do?”
Xu Weilai never expected the sky to be dark when she opened her eyes.
She looked at her phone instinctively. It was already 8 pm…
She sprung up from the sofa. The blanket draped over her body dropped. She didn’t have the time to pick it up. Instead, she turned her head to look at the office table.
She felt that Gu Yu should have finished his work by now!
Much to her surprise, the office was empty. She quickly scanned the office but found no sign of Gu Yu.
Where was he?
Did he go to another meeting? Was he still busy?
Xu Weilai picked up the blanket first and folded it properly. She placed it at the side before getting up and walking to the bathroom in Gu Yu’s resting area. She washed her face to wake herself up before walking out again.
Coincidentally, someone had pushed the office door open at the same time she walked out. Her expression lit up as she opened her mouth and shouted, “Gu…”
When her gaze landed on Assistant Lin, however, she abruptly stopped speaking and swallowed a mouth of saliva. She reorganized her words before speaking again, “Assistant Lin, where is Gu Yu? Is he still busy?”
Assistant Lin replied, “There’s a matter that Mr. Gu is still thinking about, so he needed to visit somewhere first. He will be back later, but he asked me to send you back for now. When he comes back, he has something to tell you!”
There was something that was able to baffle Gu Yu? Xu Weilai raised her eyebrows in astonishment.
Since he said that he would return to the apartment later, there was no need for her to wait here anymore. She nodded and replied, “I will go back first. I drove here, so there’s no need for you to send me back. Stay here and help Gu Yu. Tell him that I’ll wait for him.”
After Xu Weilai left, Gu Yu took out his phone and dialed a number. The moment the other party picked up the call, he immediately asked, “Where are you?”
