Gu Yu stopped in his tracks when he heard this and turned to look at Yun Rou with his jet black eyes. When he saw how happy she was, his lips curled up into a mocking smile and instead of answering, asked, “Yun Rou, are you sure it was me who asked you to stay?”
Yun Rou’s expression inevitably changed. “Yu, what do you mean by this?”
A hint of ridicule appeared in Gu Yu’s dark, gloomy eyes as he replied, “What do you think?”
All of a sudden, as if Yun Rou had remembered something, she clutched her head with both hands and muttered, “Yu, you’re the one who asked me to stay. You do love me. I’m the one you love. It’s me!”
She shouted out the last two words hysterically and tears began to trickle down her cheeks. She then looked at him pitifully and begged, “Yu, don’t chase me away, ok? I want to stay by your side. I want us to be like how we used to be. We can do this. I’ll never leave you again. Have faith in me, alright? If not, I can wait for your anger to subside. I’m willing to wait as long as it takes, just like how you waited for me!”
Gu Yu does not seem to be moved by her words. In fact, he even appeared disgusted and impatient. Ignoring what she had said, he repeated his instructions coldly, “Bear in mind that you’d jolly well disappear on your own by the day after tomorrow.”
“Yu, you can’t do this to me! ” Yun Rou screamed and pounced towards Gu Yu with all her might, in an attempt to hug and hold onto him. But just when she was about to touch him, his handsome face darkened and he dodged to the side without hesitation.
Yun Rou only managed to grab hold of the corner of his shirt for a brief moment before she landed heavily and miserably on the ground.
Anger brewed in Gu Yu’s jet black eyes and he pursed his thin lips into a taut line. He instantly removed his blazer and strode over to the rubbish bin in the ward before chucking the blazer into the bin with great contempt.
When Yun Rou saw what he had done, she felt as though she had been struck by lightning. She still could not accept what she had just witnessed even after Gu Yu had left.
“He doesn’t want the blazer just because I touched a corner of it and even threw it away with such disdain. The Yu whom I know isnt’ like this. He was never like this… Why does he have to treat me like that? He clearly loves me very much and would never treat me like that!” she thought.
Yun Rou supported herself with her arms and stood up before staggering over to the rubbish bin to look at the blazer. All of a sudden, she went berserk and began to smash everything in the ward that she could get her hands on. Eventually, she sat down the bed limply and, covering her face with her hands, began to break down.
As she cried, she recalled how Gu Yu had told her to disappear and she muttered the word under her breath over and over again. Finally, she stopped crying and began to giggle in an unusually strange and frightening manner.
“To disappear… The one who should disappear is Xu Weilai, not me! Yu only became so odd because of Xu Weilai. He was deceived by her, just like how Grandpa was. Everything would be back to normal as long as Xu Weilai disappeared. Yu would return to me and love me as much as he did in the past. We could then be together forever,” she contemplated.
Yun Rou lifted her hands up and brushed her tears away before she entered the bathroom to wash her face. In fact, she was even in the mood to put on some makeup. After checking herself out in the mirror and she affirming that she looked elegant and beautiful like how she usually was, walked out of the bathroom and took out her phone to make a call.
