Chapter 358: Trapped Between the Fridge and Him (2)
Xu Weilai’s face remained flushed even after she had hung up the phone. Gu Yu’s words lingered in her mind.
“Xu Weilai, since the mission is over, it’s time for you to pay the due reward.”
“Give some thought to how you’re going to pay me. If I’m not satisfied, I won’t accept it.”
As an overbearing CEO who wasn’t short of money, Xu Weilai knew that she wouldn’t be able to induce him with cash. Besides, even her entire fortune wouldn’t be enough to afford whatever he asked for as a reward.
And his words had made that clear: he wasn’t going to accept any ordinary reward.
Back then, she had kissed him in place of interest. Does it now mean that she would have to devote herself to Gu Yu as a means of rewarding him?
To be sure, to say that she was unmoved was impossible, given their interactions during this period. Gu Yu good was to her, and he had changed a lot. But, a tinge of insecurity remained deep within her, giving her second thoughts still, and preventing her from taking the next step.
Xu Weilai took a deep breath. It dawned on her that she’d have to think of other ways to reward him.
Just then, Mrs. Lin walked out of her room. Xu Weilai noticed that she had changed her clothes, and couldn’t help but ask, “Mrs. Lin, are you going out?”
Mrs. Lin smiled as she nodded, “That’s right. There’s no more food at home. I’ll be making a trip to the supermarket.”
Xu Weilai was still mulling over how to thank Gu Yu. At the mention of the supermarket, she got up immediately from the sofa, and with a glint in her eyes, said, “I’ll go with you.”
As soon as Gu Yu stepped into the apartment, he was greeted with the fragrance wafting from the kitchen.
Mrs. Lin approached him and took his briefcase and coat, and told him with all smiles, “Young Master, the Young Mistress went to pick out some fresh ingredients herself this afternoon. She’s the one cooking. She said she wanted to whip up a tasty meal, and had been busy since we came back from the supermarket. She didn’t even let me help her.”
Gu Yu’s mouth curved up. Without saying a word, he changed his shoes and went straight into the kitchen.
His tall figure leaned against the door frame. He didn’t disturb Xu Weilai. His inky gaze remained fixed on her, following her every move.
Xu Weilai seemed to sense his eyes were on her. She hurriedly turned around to look at him, and gave him a bright smile, a smile so bright that her eyes curved into crescents. “You’re back? Just wait for a while more, and we can eat.”
Gu Yu kept his gaze on her smiling face. At that moment, for some reason, he was engulfed in bliss, one that filled his heart and warmed him.
As it turned out, he could be easily pleased after all.
All it would take for her was to keep the light on for him when he returned to the apartment, the fragrance of a freshly-cooked meal drifting in the air, and her welcoming, bright smile.
It was as if her smile casts a magic spell that could enchant him. Gu Yu’s eyes darkened as he strode towards Xu Weilai. He clasped her wrist and pressed her against the fridge, trapping her with his body.
Gu Yu lowered his eyes, gazing at the woman’s beautiful and exquisite face, her bright inky eyes, and her light-pink lips. His throat felt contracted, and he asked in a raspy voice, “Xu Weilai, have you thought about how you’re going to reward me?”
Caught off-guard and trapped between the fridge and Gu Yu, Xu Weilai drifted into a daze for a moment. Then, the direct question he had asked of her, and the look in his eyes that seem to suggest he was ready to swallow her whole, made her face flush involuntarily once more. Even the tips of her ears had turned red.
She swallowed hard, trying her best to calm down as she said, “I have made all your favorite dishes. This reward…”
But, before she could finish talking, he quietened her. “I’m not satisfied.”
Xu Weilai stayed silent for a while, before retorting, “You’re saying you’re not satisfied even before eating anything. Give it a try first!”
After that response, the man lowered his head and kissed her lips.
