I ADORE HIM - Season 3 Episode 84
Qin Zhi’ai seemed to have found a straw to clutch at. Without hesitation, she pushed Gu Yusheng away and stammered out the words, “It’s time for dinner.” Then she picked up her clothes from the ground, quickly put them on, and rushed out of the study with her bag in her hand.
As she ran out, Gu Yusheng looked at her back and couldn’t help sneaking a smile. He waited until the door to the main bedroom next to the study was tightly closed, then he bent over and picked up his clothes, stepping into the restroom in the study.
While Gu Yusheng was upstairs, Qin Zhi’ai had already sat down at the table, chatting with the housekeeper. He didn’t know how funny their conservation was that it had her eyebrows and eyes curved with laughter.
However, hearing the housekeeper respectfully calling for him, she turned around to glance at him quickly, then lowered her head.
Is she being bashful?
Gu Yusheng suddenly cheered up. Unlike usual, he responded to the housekeeper’s greeting with, “Hi.”
After eating dinner, Qin Zhi’ai, who was accompanied by the housekeeper, went for a walk in the courtyard. Then she went back to her bedroom.
Probably since what had happened in the study had tired her out, she went to sleep early, at nine o’clock in the evening.
Not feeling sleepy at all, Gu Yusheng thought of the unfinished documents. After asking the housekeep to make a cup of coffee for him, he went to the study.
By the time he finished working, it was already eleven o’clock in the evening.
Leaning against the back of the chair, he raised his eyebrows. When he was about to get up and return to the bedroom to sleep, he caught sight of a half exposed pink envelope that was under a folder.
Oh my god. It suddenly occurred to him that he hadn’t yet replied to Xiao A’s letter.
Considering that he had done what he wanted to do that afternoon, he would not continue to make love with that woman after he went back to the bedroom. Therefore, leaning on the chair, he casually sat in a lazy posture, tore open the envelope, and read the letter from Xiao A.
“Mr. S, I have good news to tell you. I’ll finally pay off all of my father’s gambling debt by next month.
“Mr. S, the man I love recently did many things to frustrate me. But he also did something that made me happy. He told me happy birthday. Although he did so because of my deception, I’m still very happy.”
After reading the last two sentences Xiao A had written, Gu Yusheng took a letter from the drawer and wrote a reply on the paper.
Xiao A had mentioned early on that her father gambled and had debts, but later, she had told him that she had found a good job and would make a lot of money to pay off his debts.
He hadn’t asked her any detailed information about the job she had found. And she hadn’t said anything about it either. Now, hearing that she was going to pay off the debts, Gu Yusheng congratulated her at the very beginning of the letter.
As usual, following the topic she mentioned in her letter, he wrote a full page. At the end of the letter, he thought that her last sentence was about the man she loved, and then paused for a while. Finally, like her letter, he also wrote a sentence about the woman he loved. “Xiao A, do you remember that I told you that I would never love any woman?
“At that time, you wrote to me, saying that we couldn’t control love. When it comes, nobody can avoid it.”
“Now, I seem to have fallen into such a condition, one that I cannot flee from.”
Writing those words, Gu Yusheng suddenly remembered Liang Doukou lying to him.
He wasn’t stupid, and he knew clearly that the reason for her lies and her excuses were because she didn’t want to spend his money.
