“Yes, I just got off the plane,” Gu Yu replied.
When Xu Weilai heard his deep, pleasant voice, her jet black eyes subconsciously shone brightly and she seemed as if she was completely immersed in the sense of happiness that one would experience only when one was in love.
Xiao Chun picked up a piece of spicy beef that she liked and placed it into her mouth and yet she could not seem to taste it at all. She even choked on it accidentally and began to cough.
Xu Weilai quickly paused her conversation with Gu Yu and grabbed the teapot and poured a cup of tea before she handed it over to Xiao Chun.
Xiao Chun accepted it and after she drank a few mouthfuls, managed to stop the coughing.
“Are you alright?” Xu Weilai asked in concern.
Xiao Chun shook her head and assured, “I’m fine. I’ll use the bathroom.”
She then stood up and walked over to the bathroom quickly.
Gu Yu seemed to have heard the commotion on the other end of the line, for he asked in confusion, “What’s wrong?”
Xu Weilai then came back to her senses and replied, “Nothing serious. Chunchun accidentally choked on something. Now that you’ve arrived at Country M, since you didn’t manage to sleep last night, you should hurry back to the hotel and get some rest.”
“Alright,” Gu Yu agreed, but showed no signs of hanging up.
Xu Weilai waited a while longer before she suggested, “Well… I’ll hang up first then?”
“Sure,” Gu Yu replied.
While Xu Weilai was supposed to hang up first, but she couldn’t bear to do so and felt as if the phone was attached to her ear. “You could hang up first,” she proposed.
“Okay,” Gu Yu agreed.
While his reply was still as swift as before, but he did not act on his words.
Xu Weilai waited for another half a minute before she insisted in a coquettish voice, “Gu Yu, hang up the call,”
“Ok,” he replied in a low, hoarse voice.
This one single word was like a stone tossed into a calm lake and it stirred up ripples of emotions in Xu Weilai’s heart.
Xu Weilai never expected herself to be so happy about a boring matter like this. There was clearly nothing to talk about, but she couldn’t bear to hang up even though they were just listening to each other breathe.
However, Gu Yu wouldn’t have time to rest if this continued any longer and thus, she gritted her teeth and made up her mind. “I’m hanging up. Remember to rest well!” she concluded.
She then hung up the call quickly as though she was afraid that she wouldn’t be able to get herself to do so if she waited any longer.
A minute later, Xiao Chun returned to her seat and sat down. She had assumed her usual expression and even remarked with envy and jealousy, “Little Weilai, things between you and Brother Yu are finally back to how it was in the past, isn’t it? No, you’re even happier than before, aren’t you?”
Xu Weilai took one glance at her phone and beamed faintly. “Gu Yu is indeed really nice to me now. I hope that things will continue to go well between us.”
For the longest time, her love for Gu Yu was unreciprocated and she was constantly chasing after him. As it was not easy for him to stop and take a look at her, she was very grateful and cherished what she had now.
When Xiao Chun saw the smile on her face, she subconsciously clenched her fists and there was a hint of restrained tremor in her voice as she said, “Little Weilai, let’s eat quickly. The food is getting cold. We could go for a walk in the mountains after we’re done with our meal.”
“Ok!” Xu Weilai chirped.
After lunch, they went back to their room first to change into a set of light, comfortable clothes and put on their sports shoes before they went down the stairs arm in arm to head towards the back of the mountain.
In order to attract guests, a section of the mountain road had been developed for tourists to take a hike. However, there was also a section othat had not been developed and a sign was erected to prohibit tourists from entering, so as to prevent any accidents.
Xu Weilai and Xiao Chun naturally walked towards the section that had been developed. After hiking and digesting most of the food they had eaten, they returned to their room and rested for a while before they got ready to head over to the hot spring for a bath.
