Chapter 258: I Like You (2)
At that very moment, Gu Xue was like a godsend to Xu Weilai.
She had been worrying about whether the night would pass peacefully. Gu Yu seemed angry for some unknown reason, and she was afraid he would torment her again…
If she went to keep Gu Xue company, that would be a legitimate reason to avoid Gu Yu!
Xu Weilai nodded her head readily, "Sure! Of course, I'll keep you company, especially given how frightened you are! You're my most important witness now! I need to take good care of your wellbeing!"
Xu Weilai then turned around. She saw Gu Yu's dark expression and soldiered on. Weakly, she said, "Gu Yu, I… I'll be sleeping in the guest room tonight…"
Without waiting for him to reply, Xu Weilai dashed out of the room and pulled Gu Xue along with her.
Gu Yu laid on the big bed, tossing and turning restlessly. He stared at the empty side of the bed, and the look in his eyes darkened.
What was it she said again? She had to take care of Gu Xue's wellbeing? What about him? Didn't his wellbeing need to be taken care of as well? Gu Xue was simply her witness. He was her husband!
Gu Yu felt his temper rising. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath, and the anger was quickly suppressed.
He could clearly see that Xu Weilai was trying to escape from him, but… he could no longer bring himself to treat her unscrupulously and brazenly.
Xu Weilai was afraid of him. He, on the other hand, was afraid of Xu Weilai being afraid of him.
That night, Gu Xue did not make Xu Weilai sleep on the couch. Instead, she pulled her on the bed. The bed was huge and had more than enough space to accommodate both of them. However, Gu Xue was being clingy and snuggled up to Xu Weilai as she slept.
Xu Weilai had learned of her personality. Towards people she didn't like, Gu Xue acted like a spoiled little princess. However, towards those she was fond of, she relied on them and trusted them wholeheartedly.
Her actions reminded Xu Weilai very much of her cute little brother, and hence, she indulged her.
The night grew late.
The door to the guest room was pushed open again, and the towering figure walked in. When he saw the two individuals snuggling together in bed, he frowned and clenched his fists tightly. The next second, he held Gu Xue by her shoulders, and mercilessly pushed her to the other side of the bed.
Following that, he pulled the quilt high and wrapped it tightly around Xu Weilai, with her limbs firmly tucked within, in order to avoid Gu Xue rolling over and hugging her arm again.
He sat by the edge of the bed and gazed at Xu Weilai who was fast asleep. He could feel his heart beating. Finally, he no longer felt like a mere shell of a person.
When Gu Xue awakened, she saw an unread message on her cell phone. When she opened it to read it, her face fell.
The sender of the message was Gu Yu, and there were only six words—It's time for you to scram!
As always, he was succinct and left no room for doubt.
Even though Gu Xue was unwilling to leave, she didn't want to be at the mercy of Gu Yu's anger and left voluntarily.
After Gu Xue showered and changed her clothes, she went to the dining room to partake in her last breakfast with Xu Weilai and brought up the fact that she wanted to go home.
Xu Weilai had very much wanted Gu Xue to stay for a few more days, but she couldn't force her either, and replied, "Would you like me to send you back?"
"That's not necessary. My chauffeur is coming to pick me up."
After a pause, Gu Xue couldn't restrain herself and proceeded to give Xu Weilai a tight hug. Sincerely, she said, "Thank you, Weilai. Also, I like you!"
The young girl was very clear about her emotions. Xu Weilai smiled at her and hugged her back.
Gu Xue turned her head to the side and brought her lips close to Xu Weilai's ear. After a moment's hesitation, she opened her mouth, and said a few words…
