Chapter 300: I'm Not As Easy To Comfort Now (2)
Xu Weilai bit her lips forcefully and opened her mouth again. "Gu Yu, I'm not easy to comfort now."
She sniffed her nose and continued, "Hence, don't think that I will forgive you just because you apologized to me a few times."
Gu Yu's hands stopped for a moment. He gave an almost unnoticeable bitter smile before moving his thin lips and saying in a hoarse voice, "Okay. Don't forgive me so easily."
He pushed Xu Weilai away slightly and lowered his gaze. He placed his hands on her cheeks and held her head up as he looked into her red eyes. His eyes were slightly red too. The pulp of his finger rubbed gently on her cheeks, wiping her tears off bit by bit.
"Xu Weilai, I will work hard. Can you… wait for me?"
In the past, everything was at the tip of his fingers. Yet, he was telling her that he would work hard.
He would work hard to coax her. He would work hard to seek her forgiveness and he would work hard to chase back the happiness that they once had.
Xu Weilai felt a gush of sourness rushing up her nose again. Her eyes turned misty once more.
She would be lying if she said that she had never hated Gu Yu over the past three years!
When she was overseas, to survive, she needed to work many jobs at once. When she was so tired that she couldn't even breathe properly, she hated him.
When she was sick and had to lie on the bed all alone, she hated him too.
Also, while she ran around to dig for news, she got hurt over and over again. She would return to her small house and apply medicine for herself. As she stared at the scars on her body, she hated him very much.
But, the person she hated the most was herself.
She hated herself for not letting go of him. She hated the fact that she was still thinking about him.
There were many complaints and grieviances she wanted to tell him. However, when those words reached the edge of her mouth, they became a single sentence. "Then… all the best to you. I… I'm moving forward faster now."
Gu Yu laughed softly. He pulled Xu Weilai into his arms again.
After some time, Xu Weilai heard the man's deep and gentle voice coming from above her head. "Okay."
Xu Weilai was already very weak. After crying furiously, her entire body was extremely tired. She was exhausted but she wasn't able to sleep immediately. It might have been because of the huge fluctuations in her emotions that caused her wound to hurt even more.
Xu Weilai furrowed her brows violently until they became a small peak on her face. If her wound was just painful, she could bear with it. However, it was itchy too. It felt like numerous ants were biting her wound. As someone who could endure pain… she almost couldn't handle it anymore.
She opened her mouth and said helplessly, "Gu Yu, can you help me to ask the doctor for any medicine that can curb the pain and the itchiness? Let me have some!"
Gu Yu felt even more hurt when he saw her feeling so uncomfortable. However, she had already been injected with a syringe of tranquilizer a few hours ago. She shouldn't take any more medication.
He went to the bathroom and wet a towel with warm water. After wringing it dry, he walked out and helped her to clean her face.
Then, he lifted the blanket slightly and got onto the bed. He leaned against the head of the bed and held Xu Weilai in his arms so that she could lean against his chest. He held her hand in his and patted her shoulders with the other. His voice was gentle as he said, "I will accompany you. You can sleep."
Xu Weilai was really exhausted. She didn't even have the energy to open her mouth. She leaned against Gu Yu's shoulder and closed her eyes as she tried to fall asleep.
Surprisingly, she managed to forget the uncomfortable feeling from her wound and fell asleep very quickly. Maybe it was because she was totally exhausted or maybe Gu Yu's hands were very warm. Or rather, it may have been because… he was beside her.
