Chapter 154: The Desperate Triple-Denial (2)
Recently, Gu Yu had been coming home very early. Hence, surprise flashed across Xu Weilai’s eyes for a split second when she saw Gu Yu returning at this hour.
The man walked in and stood tall. The spacious elevator suddenly felt strangely small. When she sensed the murderous aura emanating from him, Xu Weilai instinctively took two steps back to increase the distance between them.
Xu Weilai had no idea who offended him, but she certainly didn’t want to be cannon fodder!
As the elevator slowly ascended, Xu Weilai kept her eyes fixed on the numbers. She watched as the one, turned to a two, and a three… It was clearly a very short amount of time, but it felt infinitely long for her.
With a “ding”, the elevator finally reached their floor, and the doors opened.
Xu Weilai heaved a sigh of relief and quickly scurried out of the enclosed space.
When Mrs. Lin spotted the two of them exiting the door one after the other, she assumed that her prediction had been correct and that they had gone out for a candlelight dinner. With a motherly chuckle, she didn’t interrupt them and headed straight to her bedroom.
Her act of consideration made Xu Weilai panic. She didn’t want to remain alone with Gu Yu! How she wished Mrs. Lin would come out and talk about anything with her! Anything!
However, before she could open her mouth to say something, Mrs. Lin had disappeared past the door and shut it firmly behind her.
Xu Weilai changed into her pair of indoor slippers and dashed off into the master bedroom. Before Gu Yu could enter, she quickly retrieved her pajamas and undergarments before running into the bathroom, locking the door behind her.
She took a bath, removed her makeup, washed her face, and applied her facemask. She even used her electronic exfoliator a few times. When she was finally done and emerged from the bathroom, more than an hour had passed.
She had reasoned with herself that Gu Yu’s anger would probably have subsided by then.
Unexpectedly, Gu Yu wasn’t in the bedroom. Xu Weilai assumed that he was in the study room, and her frazzled nerves gradually calmed down. She sat facing her vanity counter and began applying her moisturizer when she figured that she had to finalize the interview as soon as possible! After all, time was always of the essence when it came to news! Who could ever predict what would happen the next second!
The sound of footsteps suddenly came from behind. Xu Weilai looked in the mirror and saw Gu Yu dressed in a bathrobe and walking over. She was stunned for a moment. Had he been in the bathroom taking a shower and not in his study the whole time?
His emotionless face made Xu Weilai feel very uneasy; she kept sensing that something was wrong. Setting aside all her thoughts about work, she hurried over to the bed, flipped the blanket, and climbed in.
She assumed her usual sleeping position, with her back towards Gu Yu, and closed her eyes.
Over the past few days, although she and Gu Yu had shared a bed, they had kept to their own corners. Therefore, she subconsciously presumed that as long as she fell asleep, she wouldn’t need to face him.
With a loud click, the lights in the room were turned off. Xu Weilai heard Gu Yu’s footsteps as he neared the bed. Flipping his side of the blanket, he got in and laid down. Everything was as usual, and silence soon reigned.
Xu Weilai slowly released a long breath, and her body relaxed. Just as she was about to fall asleep, she suddenly felt an arm shoot across her, locking her arms in place.
She opened her eyes abruptly, but before she could even react, her body was dragged across violently by the man. In the dark, Gu Yu’s actions were predatory. He suddenly flipped himself over and pinned her under his body. His fathomless eyes stared deeply into her, almost as if he was scrutinizing his prey!
Xu Weilai couldn’t help but gulp from the pressure. She had been too careless!
Instinctively, she raised her arms and pushed against the man’s chest. When she spoke, she couldn’t stop her voice from trembling, “Gu Yu, what are you doing?”
