Chapter 158: Gu Yu, I Want to Marry You (2)
That scenario hadn’t surprised Xu Weilai one bit. Gu Yu had always been surrounded by women that vied for his attention. Now that he had become even more distinguished, it was no wonder that even more women were eyeing the position of being his missus.
However, Gu Yu was already hers.
But… was he really hers?
Xu Weilai put a smile on her face and walked forward gracefully until she was in front of Gu Yu. She had appeared uninvited and was unsure if Gu Yu would welcome her.
When Gu Yu saw her, he wasn’t surprised. His fathomless eyes darkened, and she panicked at his reaction. However, the very next moment, he had reached out for her and snaked his arm around her waist, pulling her to his side.
He lowered his head and kissed her cheek before introducing her to everyone present. “This is Xu Weilai, my fiancée,” he said.
At that moment, Xu Weilai’s uncertain heart had slowly regained its sense of security. Nothing had changed. Gu Yu had been simply too busy during that period of time…
After the event, while Gu Yu was sending her home, the car had stopped at a red light. Looking out of the car window, she inadvertently spotted the glass window of a bridal shop. A beautiful white gown had been on display. She stared at it foolishly, her heart full of hope, and had spoken up without a second thought. “Gu Yu, look! That bridal gown looks so beautiful.”
Gu Yu had followed her line of sight and looked over without a word. He stayed silent.
Impatient for a reply, Xu Weilai turned around to face him and spotted the dark, obscure look in his eyes. She couldn’t tell what he was thinking.
After a few seconds, he looked at her and lowered his voice to ask, “You’re thinking of getting married?”
Xu Weilai had simply made the passing comment because she found the bridal gown pretty. She hadn’t been intending to rush him into marriage at all. But after hearing Gu Yu’s question, she froze for half a second before blushing and looking down. After staring at the tips of her feet for some time, she had finally answered, “Gu Yu, I want to marry you.”
It wasn’t exactly that she wanted to get married. She had only wanted to marry Gu Yu, whom she loved. She wanted to be by his side for the rest of their lives, happy and in love until they were old
At that point, Gu Yu had seemed to scoff. She couldn’t be sure. But in any case, he hadn’t given her a reply.
After that day, on the surface, the relationship had seemed to return to what it had been before. However, Xu Weilai hadn’t been able to shake off the nagging feeling that something was wrong.
Gu Yu still treated her very well. He doted on her and pampered her. But many a time, she felt that the look in his eyes when he looked at her had changed. His eyes had seemed to hide various emotions that she couldn’t identify. Every time she tried to take a closer look, that expression would disappear, making her wonder if she had merely imagined it.
After Gu Yu took control of the Gu Corporation, everything had become formalized. Mr. and Mrs. Xu had pressured her to hasten her marriage with Gu Yu. Gu Yu and Xu Weilai had both been very young when the betrothal was arranged, and no one had been anxious then. However, now that they were both of age, and Gu Yu had become prominent, Mr. and Mrs. Xu wanted to lessen the chances of any unpleasant surprises occurring.
Xu Weilai wasn’t concerned about unpleasant surprises. She just found it baffling that a wall seemed to be erected between her and Gu Yu for some unknown reason, and she began to panic because of it. And that was when she made the biggest mistake of her life—one that she regretted ever since.
That was how three years ago, using alcohol as an excuse, she had kissed Gu Yu and proceeded to have relations with him.
That was her first time, and Gu Yu hadn’t been gentle. It had been very painful. But she endured the pain willingly because at that moment, she was happy.
