That sudden question caught Xu Weilai by surprise and left her with no time to react. She stared at him in confusion.
Gu Yu swept his dark gaze over her, and as if he found her innocent expression laughable, his lips pulled back into a sardonic smile. However, there was no hint of humor in his face at all.
He didn’t explain himself, and he didn’t say anything else. Instead, he pressed down on the gas pedal forcefully and the car zoomed off!
The speed increased, and the car accelerated like a leopard running into the night.
Before Xu Weilai could process what Gu Yu’s words had meant, her mind started to go blank. Her face slowly lost its color, and her heart beat wildly as her grip tightened around the seatbelt
Gu Yu was driving like a crazed man. The road down the mountain was winding, and several times, it almost seemed as if he was about to hit the guardrails. Xu Weilai was so terrified that she forgot how to breathe!
She opened her mouth, wanting to tell Gu Yu to slow down. But her words got caught in her throat and she couldn’t make a sound.
Besides, even if she did say something, she knew that Gu Yu wouldn’t listen!
Although she didn’t know the reason for it, she could sense that Gu Yu’s fury at the very moment was like a raging fireball.
Wasn’t it a fact that he didn’t want their marriage in the first place?
The car continued speeding on for some time, and just as Xu Weilai started to feel like she was going to suffocate, the car finally stopped!
She sat there, gasping for air, and attempting to ease the discomfort that had been caused by the extreme speed. However, Gu Yu offered her no respite. With a loud click, he unbuckled his seatbelt and turned his body to face her.
In the next moment, Xu Weilai felt her chin become locked in Gu Yu’s chilly grasp. His grip around her chin was very strong, as if he wanted nothing more than to shatter her bones. He jerked her face over and forced her to look up into his dark eyes.
Truthfully, Gu Yu’s eyes were very beautiful. Xu Weilai especially remembered that the first time she had seen him, at his eighteenth birthday party, his eyes had been the first thing to captivate her.
Even though his eyes were very dark, at the same time, they were able to shine brightly. They were like the brightest stars in the entire galaxy, and they were shining in the night sky.
1In the past, these eyes had carried light, warmth, and love when they looked at her. Now, all that was left in them was hate, anger, and resentment.
Gu Yu lifted his thin lips and his tone was hostile as he said, “Xu Weilai, when you married me for that one billion, I warned you not to regret it! Did you think my words were a f*cking joke?”
Growing up, Gu Yu had received a stellar education, and he easily stood out among his peers. Regardless of how angry he got, and even if he lost control of his emotions, he never resorted to using vulgarities.
The fact that he was using that word was evidence that his fury had completely boiled over!
Just as his words rang out, the sound of waves crashing against the shore could be heard coming from outside the car.
Xu Weilai moved her face stiffly towards the window and saw a sandbank in the distance. As she looked into the dark and limitless ocean, a memory suddenly came back to her.
On the day that she had agreed to the marriage, Gu Yu had stopped her at the entrance of the hospital and had driven her to this very same beach.
Back then, he had said to her, “Xu Weilai, since you started this game, don’t you regret it! I will definitely give you a good game… until you’ve had enough!”
Gu Yu watched Xu Weilai’s eyes gradually widen, and he narrowed his eyes. His breathing slowed, and with a menacing smile, he asked, “Do you remember, now?”
Xu Weilai didn’t say a word, and Gu Yu didn’t need her to say anything, either.
“Xu Weilai, from the looks of it, I’ve been too kind to you this whole time. You’ve gotten the idea that you could marry me when it suited you, and now, divorce me because you feel like it. Do you think of me as so inconsequential, that you would play with me in the palm of your hand?”
