This was the number that had sent Gu Yu a message previously telling him the sender would wait for him until he came. Later on, as expected, the owner of the number proved to be Yun Rou.
Xu Weilai's grip tightened around the cell phone. After hesitating for a while, she finally unlocked the phone and opened the message.
[Xu Weilai, are you truly coming today?]
Xu Weilai's black pupils suddenly constricted as her breathing stopped.
Yun Rou knew that Gu Yu had asked her out. In other words… was Gu Yu truly taking her to see Yun Rou?
The next second, her phone rang. It was from the same number.
As Xu Weilai stared in silence at the number blinking on her screen, she pressed her lips into a tight line. Just as the call was about to disconnect on its own, she moved her finger and answered it.
The woman's voice was gentle and elegant as always. At that moment, a hint of triumph was evident in her tone as she said, "Xu Weilai, do you know what day it is today?"
She chuckled before continuing, "Today is the anniversary of the day Gu Yu and I got together.
Every year in the past, Gu Yu would celebrate this day together with me. This year, he's still celebrating it with me. The reason he called you along was to tell you that even time and distance could never stop us from loving each other.
Xu Weilai, when I told you to initiate the divorce before, it was genuinely for your benefit. It was too bad that you didn't appreciate my sentiments. Now, Gu Yu has no choice but to resort to his methods to resolve the problem. You know very well that Gu Yu has always been ruthless and emotionless.
The reason why I'm calling you now is that at the end of the day, my heart isn't hard enough. After all, why should one woman make things so hard for another?
Of course, this is just prompting and a suggestion for the sake of my conscience. Naturally, if you still insist on coming to witness the love between Gu Yu and me, you're more than welcome to."
The line was cut off, and the bedroom fell back into a deathly silence.
Xu Weilai clenched her hand around the phone tightly, as if she wanted to crush it.
The encouragement she had given herself previously instantly felt like a joke after she had heard every word that Yun Rou had uttered.
She had still been hoping that Gu Yu would not take her to meet Yun Rou and put her in such an awkward position. She had thought that even if they weren't mutually in love, he would at least refrain from hurting her like this.
Was there still no love in the end?
If Gu Yu could be this heartless to her, he surely felt nothing for her.
Xu Weilai stood rooted to the spot in a daze for a long time before she suddenly caught sight of her reflection in the mirror of her vanity counter. Her face was pale and seemingly bloodless. Her eyes were red and cold. She almost didn't look like herself anymore.
Did she still want to go? Did she still need to go?
If she went, was she going to witness the reunion of Gu Yu and Yun Rou and watch as they displayed their affection for each other? Was she going to allow herself to make herself look like a fool to them?
Time slowly ticked by. After a long while, Xu Weilai finally moved. She moved her feet, strode out of the bedroom, and into the study.
She sat behind the desk and opened her laptop. She opened her email, and her hands were shaking as she nevertheless typed out a few words resolutely.
Even though they were just a few words, she felt as if they had recharged her.
When she was done, her hands moved to the mouse and the cursor hovered over the send button for a moment. Gritting her teeth, she clicked on it.
Very soon, a notification appeared on her screen: [Message sent!]
