Chapter 260: It Wasn’t Like. It Was Love. (2)
…It was love.
It wasn't just mere liking. It was love.
Gu Xue's hand trembled uncontrollably as she held the phone. She knew the magnitude of what such an emotion meant to Brother Yu.
For such an emotionally closed-off person to possess such a strong love…
Although these were only her speculations, it was earthshaking enough for her skin to erupt in goosebumps. She rubbed her arms as she attempted to digest the most groundbreaking information she had ever known since childhood!
Gu Yu put his cell phone down, and he smiled imperceptibly.
When Assistant Lin walked in, it was just in time to catch that look of joy that flashed across his face. He heaved a sigh of relief. It seemed that the dark clouds had finally cleared to make way for his Boss's sunny mood!
At long last, he wouldn't have to struggle with the dilemma of being stuck between a rock and a hard place!
All the aches in Assistant Lin's body disappeared. He straightened his back, and there was a spring in his step as he walked up to Gu Yu's desk. Holding the iPad in his hand, he moved his fingers around the screen as he briefed Gu Yu on the itinerary for the day.
"You have a video conference at ten o'clock, a lunch appointment at 12 o'clock, a golf appointment with Mr. He at three in the afternoon, and a dinner appointment at seven in the evening. After dinner, you have a nine o'clock flight to L City to catch. I've already made the hotel arrangements over there. You'll be staying there for approximately one wee…"
Before he could finish his sentence, he heard his boss state two words impassively. "Postpone it."
"…" Assistant Lin's monologue ground to a halt and he asked belatedly, "What?"
Gu Yu looked up at him and narrowed his eyes in dissatisfaction. Still in that dilemma, Assistant Lin moved the cogs in his mind quickly and asked, "You'd like to postpone the overseas trip?"
Only then did Gu Yu remove his threatening gaze.
He had finally managed to rid his apartment of the third wheel. If he went overseas at such a time, wouldn't the effort have been all for nothing? He, Gu Yu, was never one to engage in useless work!
Gu Xue's words to Xu Weilai that morning had kept her in a trance the entire day. She had bumped into the coffee table while walking, choked on her water when drinking, and had almost broken a bowl accidentally while helping Mrs. Lin with the dishes.
Upon seeing this, Mrs. Lin chased her back to the room to get some rest.
Xu Weilai laid on the bed but was unable to fall asleep. Her thoughts were in a mess. In order to calm herself down and ease her mind, she headed to the study. With her laptop in her hands, she started on a draft for a news article.
When Gu Yu returned to the apartment, it was already ten o'clock at night.
He changed his shoes at the front door and walked in. The first thing his eyes sought out was Xu Weilai. The light in the bedroom was off; she wasn't in the bedroom. Conversely, the light in the study was on; that was where she had to be.
Subconsciously, he walked to the entrance of the study and saw Xu Weilai typing furiously at the desk. His eyes brimmed with tenderness as he stood there gazing at her for a while. Without interrupting her, he headed back to the bedroom.
When he emerged from the bathroom after his shower, Gu Yu checked the time. It was already half-past eleven, and Xu Weilai had yet to return to the bedroom.
Gu Yu frowned, and instead of going to bed, he sat on the couch and took out some documents to peruse.
Twelve o'clock passed, and so did half-past twelve. Without Gu Yu realizing it, another hour had passed, and still, Xu Weilai didn't return.
Gu Yu snapped his folder shut and got up without any hesitation. He strode out of the bedroom and headed towards the study.
However, the lights in the study were already switched off. Xu Weilai was no longer there. He checked the living room, kitchen, and even the balcony, but she was nowhere to be found!
Where on earth was she?!
