She had been preparing herself mentally ever since she returned with him, but she never expected it to come so soon.
Moreover, he was being too cruel.
He could very well have simply brought up his intention to divorce instead of taking her to meet Yun Rou and having her witness their love, thereby prolonging her pain.
Gu Yu noticed something off about Xu Weilai, so he got up with a frown before striding over. With the light shining on her face, her complexion looked worryingly pale.
"Are you not feeling well?"
The sound of Gu Yu's voice pulled Xu Weilai out of her thoughts. She quickly lowered her eyelids and forced her lips to curl into a smile as she made up a lie on the spot. "I'm just a little dizzy. I probably spent too long in the bath."
Without a second word, Gu Yu scooped her up in his arms and strode over to the huge bed. Carefully, he laid her on it and said, "I'll get you some medicated oil."
"Sure," Xu Weilai replied with a gentle nod of her head.
Gu Yu rose and walked out of the bedroom.
Xu Weilai closed her eyes as pain repeatedly pierced her heart.
She now understood why Yun Rou was bold enough to demand that she initiate the divorce. It was because Gu Yu had truly chosen her. The reason Gu Yu hadn't mentioned anything directly to her was probably out of gratitude for saving his life.
His action of taking her to meet Yun Rou was probably his way of helping her to retain her dignity and allowing her to retreat on her own terms.
Was it truly time for her to let go?
No… perhaps the situation wasn't as bad as she was imagining it to be. If Gu Yu truly felt grateful towards her, he didn't need to put her in such an awkward situation!
That's right! Even if she was going down, she would do so with her eyes wide open.
She was no longer going to run away. She decided to go with Gu Yu. After all, what if the person he wanted her to meet wasn't Yun Rou?
She had to admit that if even the slight chance of it being the truth existed, she still wanted to hold on to it. After all, she and Gu Yu were already married, and it had taken them a lot to get to where they currently were. Why couldn't she fight for her marriage? She already possessed enough courage to block a knife, as it was!
Gu Yu returned and sat on the edge of the bed. He uncapped the bottle of medicated oil and obtained a drip oil on the tip of his finger before massaging it lightly into Xu Weilai's temples. "Does it feel better?" he asked gently.
Xu Weilai raised her eyes to meet Gu Yu's dark eyes intently. As if she finally came to a monumental decision, she declared somberly, "Alright. I'll meet the person the day after tomorrow."
The sudden statement took Gu Yu by surprise. It was a moment before he registered that she was replying to his words from before. His dark eyes lit up with tenderness, and his tone softened even further as he said, "It's getting late. If you're not feeling well, you should rest early."
Xu Weilai nodded her head and slid under the blanket.
When Gu Yu rose a second later, she suddenly reached her hand forward and her fingers brushed against his sleeve. He froze and turned to look at her. With concern in his eyes, he asked, "What is it?"
She shook her head gently. "I just wanted to say ‘good night' to you."
The corners of the man's lips turned up in a smile that reached his eyes. He suddenly leaned forward, and without any warning, planted a kiss on her lips. Before Xu Weilai could recover from her shock, she heard his husky voice ring out beside her ear. "Good night."
When Gu Yu walked out of the bedroom, Xu Weilai was still able to feel his warmth on her lips. Her heart began to hammer in her chest uncontrollably. Perhaps Gu Yu did feel a little something for her!
Would she win this round?
Time flew by until in the blink on an eye, the day she agreed upon with Gu Yu arrived.
Just as Xu Weilai was about to leave the house, her cell phone chimed. A new message had been received, coming from an unidentified number. However, the string of numbers looked very familiar.
