Chapter 313: Had He Noticed Her Pain? (1)
Mrs. Lin stroked Xu Weilai's back with her hand. Xu Weilai was already skinny, to begin with. Now that she had lost even more weight, she felt downright bony.
Before Mrs. Lin could even finish her sigh, Xu Weilai had disappeared from her embrace in the blink of an eye. When she looked again, she found her Young Master with a sullen face, holding Xu Weilai's wrist as he pulled her over to his side.
She was caught off guard by the ominous look in her Young Master's eyes, and a threatening vibe emanated over. Mrs. Lin was stunned.
Please say it wasn't so! Would the Young Master be so possessive over the Young Mistress that even giving her a hug and a pat could make him jealous? She was a middle-aged and married woman!
Oh my god! What a baseless jealousy that was!
It was just her luck that she watched the Young Master grow up and treated him like her own son. There was no other option but to give in to his demands and let him have his way.
Mrs. Lin pulled her hands back obediently before saying, "Young Mistress, Mr. Gu Sr. has instructed me to take good care of you. I'll be cooking more nutritious food for your meals, and I'll brew you some bird's nest and collagen every day. These dishes are appetizing and will not tax your body."
Xu Weilai nodded her head with a smile. "Thank you, Mrs. Lin," she replied.
Xu Weilai took a warm comfortable bath. When she emerged from the bathroom, she saw that Gu Yu was done with his shower too. He was wrapped in a loose bathrobe and in the midst of towel-drying his slightly damp hair. He threw the towel aside and walked towards the big bed.
While at the hospital, Gu Yu had not shared a bed with her, likely because he had been worried about accidentally touching her wound while he slept. Thus, he had slept on the couch the entire time he was with her.
Now that her wound had fully healed, it was understandable that he wanted to share the bed again.
Xu Weilai sat at the vanity counter. She was about to begin her skincare routine when she saw through the mirror that Gu Yu hadn't lifted the blanket and gotten into bed. Instead, he bent forward to pick up the pillow from the bed before turning around and heading over to the couch.
Was he… planning to continue sleeping on the couch?
Sure enough, she saw Gu Yu lay the pillow on the couch. Then, he walked into the closet room and emerged with a large blanket.
Xu Weilai was astonished. Before she could stop herself, she asked, "Are you… intending to sleep on the couch?"
Gu Yu laid the blanket on the couch before turning to face her. He solemnly nodded his head and replied, "Xu Weilai, until I have your permission, I won't sleep on the bed… or force you again."
Xu Weilai was dumbfounded; she never expected him to say something like that.
It turned out that Gu Yu wasn't just paying lip service. Had he truly noticed her pain?
It took Xu Weilai a long while before she recovered her senses. Gu Yu's statement caused a ripple of emotion to pass through her, and the feeling radiated outwards.
She had initially been worried. Before ascertaining Gu Yu's feelings for her, she didn't want to engage in the act with him. Now, he had thoughtfully removed that concern altogether.
It was impossible for her to not be touched by his gesture.
However, Gu Yu had already been sleeping on the couch for half a month. It would be unconscionable of her to make him continue sleeping on the couch. On account of the fact that he had personally taken care of her for such a long time, Xu Weilai finally opened her mouth after a moment's consideration.
"Gu Yu, you won't be able to sleep very well on the couch. Why don't you…"
