Chapter 229: Hah! Men (1)
Xu Weilai felt her heart jerk wildly as she subconsciously shifted her body to block the laptop screen.
While she was certainly innocent, Gu Yu might’ve not necessarily thought so. To Gu Yu, her reputation had long been tarnished beyond salvation… To him, she must have been good at seducing men.
Gu Yu’s gaze gradually shifted over to her face, but he continued to maintain a poker face that made it impossible to read his emotions.
Xu Weilai pursed her lips slightly as her hands instantly balled up into fists at her sides. After a few seconds of hesitation, she still chose to explain for herself. “I did not seduce him.”
To be honest, if they were destined to be unable to end their marriage for the time being, then she would be more inclined to ‘get along’ with Gu Yu. Nobody enjoys being tormented. Moreover, she disliked it when Gu Yu became angry.
She certainly didn’t like to explain for herself in the past, but that was only because Gu Yu had never trusted her and was constantly accusing her. It was inevitable for her to feel aggrieved and behave obstinately.
Just now, however… He had just applied medication for her. It was a rare moment of slight tenderness, and she does not want them to instantly be at each other’s throats again.
She had explained for herself, but it would be beyond her control as to whether or not Gu Yu would believe her.
After she said that, Xu Weilai’s hands clenched even tighter. Staring at the ground, she subconsciously bit into her lip as she waited for Gu Yu to respond.
it felt as if a long time had passed, yet it also felt like a fleeting instant before Xu Weilai finally heard the man acknowledge blandly, “Mm.”
At first, she did not manage to react to the situation. Shortly afterward, she raised her head and looked at him in astonishment. “You… You believe me?”
Gu Yu gave a hard smile and he replied to her with a question, “Would you ever be interested in him?”
Xu Weilai shooked her head out of reflex to the sudden question. “Not even if you give him to me for free.”
A fleeting smile seemed to appear on Gu Yu’s face before he then replied lazily, “You may be inadequate in most things, but you have slightly better taste in men.”
Xu Weilai didn’t know how to respond.
Wait a minute, why did his words sound strange? Gu Yu had believed in her because he knew that she would not like Rong Wang and thus would not seduce him. He also believed that she had tried to seduce him in the past because she took fancy in him.
In other words, he was praising himself when he complimented her for her good tastes.
Xu Weilai smirked and replied, “Thanks for your compliment.”
In the past, Gu Yu was generally reticent whenever they were together, so she never knew that he had a sharp tongue. If she had known about this hidden ability of his back then, she would never have gotten so emotionally attached to him.
After their conversation ended, Xu Weilai decided to walk over to the kitchen to pour herself a glass of water. Right after she took a step forward, however, Gu Yu yanked her back again. Caught off guard, she fell right into his arms.
Before Xu Weilai could finish her sentence, Gu Yu had kissed her once again. To prevent her from struggling and breaking free, he held her cheeks with both of his hands and pressed his lips against hers violently.
This kiss was not like the gentle peck from earlier. It was very forceful, almost as if he was punishing her. She even felt slightly pained from it.
Xu Weilai frowned slightly. What was going on? Didn’t he say that he believed her? Was he angry again?
Xu Weilai raised her hands to push him away. No matter how she pushed, he would not budge. She became so angry that she began to thrash him hard on his chest a few times.
However, Gu Yu only became worse. He pried open her teeth and forced his tongue in before he explored inside freely and willfully, leaving no stone unturned…
