Chapter 369: A Performance Only For Him (1)
Xu Weilai stared at those few words until the phone's screen turned black. Then, she blinked her eyes in astonishment.
Unconsciously, she clenched her fist and furrowed her brows slightly as she struggled and hesitated for a few seconds. In the end, she lifted her hand and picked up Gu Yu's phone. She opened the screen again.
She recorded the phone number. It had 11 digits.
There was no caller ID, but Xu Weilai had a feeling that it was Yun Rou's phone number.
She could have used her contacts to help her trace the owner of the number. But she didn't do it.
So what if it was Yun Rou's number? She had asked Gu Yu out for a date, but he might not go. Even if he did go, it might be for some other matter. It might not have anything to do with love!
As a reporter, Xu Weilai was aware that she mustn't come to any conclusions when she didn't have any evidence or when she didn't know the truth.
That's right! She shouldn't get upset!
Xu Weilai took a deep breath and put Gu Yu's phone down. She dried her hair and finished applying the skincare. Then, she snuggled into bed and blocked all her awful thoughts. She closed her eyes and went to sleep.
When Gu Yu came back to the bedroom, it was silent. The wall lamp glowed dimly.
He saw the small bulge on the bed. A gentle gaze appeared in his eyes. Unwittingly, he walked slowly and softly because he didn't want to wake up Xu Weilai.
Gu Yu lifted the blanket, laid down, and turned sideways. He looked at the person sleeping peacefully on the other side of the bed. He smiled. He lifted his long arm and hugged her body. Then, he brought her closer to him.
After Gu Yu shut his eyes, Xu Weilai's eyelashes batted slightly. She slowly opened her eyes.
Gu Yu, is your gentleness real or fake?
Xu Weilai had followed people many times when she was out chasing the news. She was used to it. Only, she didn't expect that one day, she would follow Gu Yu.
She admitted to herself that she was timid. She couldn't speak out on her worries and queries. Also, if Gu Yu had lied to her about the past, even if she asked him, she wouldn't get the truth.
So, she could only look for answers on her own.
It was 4 pm. Xu Weilai drove to her destination in her small car. She reached the Gu Corporation building at 5.15 pm and parked her car along the road opposite the building. Patiently, she waited inside the vehicle.
Usually, Gu Yu finished work at 5.30 pm. By waiting outside the building, she would be able to see if he decided to keep his date.
Xu Weilai waited for Gu Yu till 7 pm when she saw him walk out of the entrance of the Gu Corporation building with Assistant Lin. He may have been swamped with work that day.
After Assistant Lin had brought the car over, Gu Yu asked him to stop driving and get off the car. Gu Yu took over the wheels and drove away.
When Xu Weilai saw this, her heart sank a little.
If Gu Yu had wanted to go back to their apartment directly or had some social activities to attend to, he would typically ask Assistant Lin to drive the car. However, on that day, he drove it personally.
Was he going to keep his date?
Xu Weilai held the steering wheel with both hands and grasped it tightly. She didn't want to make any guesses; she wanted to see the truth for herself.
She started the engine and stepped on the accelerator. She turned the steering wheel and followed Gu Yu at a distance.
It was the peak hour, and the roads were slightly jammed. Gu Yu's car moved and stopped continually, so Xu Weilai didn't lose him. She followed him to his destination. She saw Gu Yu park his car in a lot along the road. She found an empty lot, too, and parked her car there.
Subsequently, Gu Yu alighted from the car and entered a place.
