Chapter 303: Either They Lived Happily Ever After… (1)
It was a squarish box.
Xu Weilai stared at it in curiosity as she tried to make out what it was. Unable to figure it out for herself, she asked, "Gu Yu, what is that?"
Was that a box of the so-called painkillers that he had been referring to? No matter how she looked at it, she couldn't see how it could effectively relieve her pain at all!
Gu Yu didn't reply to her immediately. He walked over and placed the small box on the bedside table. After arranging it on the table and plugging it into an electrical source, he turned off the lights in the room.
The room suddenly dimmed, much to Xu Weilai's simultaneous surprise and puzzlement. She opened her mouth, but before she could ask Gu Yu what he was doing, what happened next stunned her into silence.
The small box projected a long beam of light onto the white wall facing the hospital bed, forming a large screen.
It turned out that… this little box was a small projector!
Even with that question answered, what was Gu Yu intending to do with this?
Gu Yu walked to the side of the bed, lifted the covers, and sat inside beside Xu Weilai. Picking up his cell phone, he clicked on a video.
The video played directly onto the big screen. After watching it for a moment, she couldn't help but ask, "Isn't this… the movie I watched before?"
This was the movie Gu Xue had asked Gu Yu to watch with Xu Weilai. However, it had been Xu Shuai who turned up to watch the movie with her instead.
"Yeah," Gu Yu replied impassively.
"So… you're trying to use a movie to distract me from the pain?"
The man nodded his head again. "Yeah."
After a pause, he added an explanation, "All the medications that you're currently using are strictly regulated by the doctor. Thus, you cannot take more painkillers."
At the very least, Gu Yu was doing this so that she could recover as soon as possible. Even though he was a little strict with her, Xu Weilai knew that it was all for her own good.
Xu Weilai couldn't help laughing as she said, "Gu Yu, I've watched this movie before. If you're trying to distract me, shouldn't you pick a movie that I haven't seen before?"
"You may have watched it before, but…"
Gu Yu's voice was strangely soft as he turned his head and gazed gently at her face. His voice was soothing and mesmerizing as he said, "I would like to accompany you to watch it again."
Xu Weilai was stunned.
"I wanted to go to the movies with you that day, but I was already on my way. However, halfway there, I got word that something urgent occurred in the company that I had to settle."
Because Gu Yu rarely explained his thoughts to others, he stumbled over a few words as he spoke. He cleared his throat a few times before finishing the rest of what he had to say. "Xu Weilai, would you be willing to watch this movie with me again?"
When he hadn't turned up for the movie date that day, she initially thought that he hadn't wanted to come. After watching the news, however, she later felt that she might have come to the wrong conclusion.
However, she never expected him to truly want to watch the movie with her.
Because Gu Yu hadn't been able to catch the movie with her then, he had prepared this to make up for the last time.
Gu Yu, who had always acted on his own terms, had finally learned to acknowledge her opinion…
A myriad of emotions suddenly surfaced in Xu Weilai's heart. She was smart enough to tell that Gu Yu's treatment towards her had become much gentler after she had regained her consciousness. It was almost as if they had returned to three years before. No… he was even more considerate than he had been three years ago.
The sudden change couldn't have happened for no reason. Was it because he was moved by her taking the knife for him and wanted to return the favor? Alternatively, was it because what Gu Xue had said was true? Did he sincerely like her?
