Chapter 92: The First Snow, First Kiss, and First Confession (2)
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
They had been together for some time by then, but Gu Yu had never confessed his feelings to her. Even though he clearly doted on her, to a girl, a perfect confession was something a relationship couldn’t lack.
Without his a direct confession of his feelings for her, she would lack a sense of security.
However, Gu Yu had never taken the initiative to speak those words. She had hinted it to him many times, but, regardless of whether he was feigning ignorance or was truly ignorant, he had never spoken any words of love and affection to her!
As a result, she had decided to stop relying on hints and to express herself openly!
Xu Weilai cleared her throat and gathered her courage as she deliberately raised her chin and said, “Gu Yu, you can confess now! I’m listening!”
Back then, Gu Yu had simply looked at her, his eyes reflecting the snowflakes in the sky and the confidence on her face.
She had waited for him to speak. His lips had quivered imperceptibly. In the end, she hadn’t received a confession. What she received was his hand going gently behind her head, pulling her closer to him.
He had lowered his head and, pressing his thin lips against her red ones, had kissed her thoroughly while the snow had landed on them.
Xu Weilai’s eyes had widened, and her world had spun around in that instant.
That had been her first kiss. And that had been the first kiss between them too…
Xu Weilai had been at a loss of how to react. She could only feel how fast her heart had been beating, how hot her face had been feeling, and how fast her breath had become. At the end, the only thing she had been conscious of was the sensation of Gu Yu’s lips on hers.
This kiss had lasted for a long, long time. Only when she had felt that she was about to expire from lack of air did Gu Yu release her. His finger had traced her swollen lips, and she had heard him chuckle before saying, “Next time, remember to breathe.”
Xu Weilai’s face had already been red. The moment he had said that, her face had reddened even further, and she had glared at him in response.
This man… hadn’t allowed her any emotional preparation at all. Jus like that, he had stolen her first kiss. Even though it had been nothing like what she had expected, she had been brimming with happiness all the same.
Xu Weilai had known that his kiss had taken the place of his confession. The possibility of him expressing it verbally was now close to none.
“Gu Yu, it’s fine if you won’t confess! I’ll do it, then!”
If he wasn’t going to do it, she’d do it instead. For every step that he took, she could take ten. She wasn’t going to allow anything to lengthen the distance between them!
Back then, they had been watching the snow on the mountain top. The top of the mountain overlooked the entire city’s skyline. It had been a beautiful, panoramic view at night.
Xu Weilai had walked over to the railings and had cupped her hands around her mouth as she had yelled out into the distance, “Gu Yu, I love you! I love you! I love you! I love you!”
Her voice had reverberated around the mountains, and had echoed back to her.
When she had been done yelling, she had turned around with a smile on her face. Gu Yu had been standing behind her, gazing at her deeply. When their eyes had met, the snow had become nothing more than their backdrop.
The first snow, first kiss, and first confession had become her most precious and perfect memory.
She had thought that Gu Yu’s lack of a confession had been because he had been accustomed to hiding his love deep inside his heart. It was only in the three years when she was away, that she had slowly begun to understand that the reason he hadn’t verbalized it was because it never existed for him.
The instant a snowflake landed on the windshield of the car, Gu Yu’s foot instinctively stepped on the breaks.
He stared out of the window into the snow, and slowly became lost in his thoughts…
He looked at his rearview mirror subconsciously. There was nothing there. The figure of Xu Weilai had disappeared a long time ago.
