Gu Yihan’s hand that was holding on to Su Kexin froze. “What do you mean?”“Those scholarships and job opportunities back then were given to me with you helping behind the scenes, isn’t it?” Su Kexin said softly. She caught a ripple of change in Gu Yihan’s gaze and knew that she had guessed correctly. “Even though you did not trust me and even lied to me, but I’m truly thankful for the help that you have given to me. If it wasn’t for you, I’m afraid that completing university would have been too much to ask for.”If Su Kexin had not graduated from university, she would not have had the chance to look for a stable job in the magazine company, more so the finances to sustain her mother’s medical fees. Hence, she was truly grateful toward Gu Yihan.Gu Yihan expression paled. “What do you mean? Are you saying that you had saved me that day only because I’ve helped you before?”Gu Yihan’s gaze stabbed painfully in Su Kexin’s heart.To be honest, she knew that she had saved him not just
In the meeting room, the finance manager was presenting the quarter’s profit when he noticed the sudden dark expression on Gu Chi’s face. A cold sweat broke out and ran down his back.‘Was there a problem with the report? It can’t be. The profits have increased by a few percentages, didn't it?’ The manager wiped his sweat as he completed his presentation and carefully asked, “President Gu, may I ask...if there is any problem?”Dead silence.Gu Chi seemed as if he had not heard the presentation by the manager. He nodded his head and looked icily on his phone screen that was on the table.It was the text message from Su Kexin.[Gu Chi, I’m back at my own home. Easier for me to take care of my mother who just discharged from the hospital.]It was a simple tone, but it angered Gu Chi and he could feel the rage burning in his chest.‘Own home? Isn’t her home the one with me? This woman does know how to spark the flames of my anger.’Gu Chi’s silence cause panic among those present
Su Kexin could tell that Gu Chi had never done any house chores before in his life.Just emptying the garbage and washing the cups was challenging enough for him, and he had wet his expensive shirt with water too.Su Kexin could not bear it anymore and asked, “Um... why don’t you let me do it instead?”“No need.” Gu Chi mumbled as he stubbornly wiped the coffee table.Su Kexin involuntarily pursed her lips as she watched Gu Chi clumsily worked around.She could not deny that Gu Chi’s tall figure and serious demeanor was very pleasing to the eyes even though he looked clumsy in doing house chores.Su Kexin felt sweet in her heart as she watched Gu Chi busying himself, but suddenly she thought of something and her gaze darkened. She was reminded of why she had hastily decided to go home.It was because of Gu Chi’s necklace and her slightly messed up heart. She forced herself to shift her gaze to avoid looking at Gu Chi.‘Su Kexin, stop looking. No matter how many times or how l
The bathroom doorknob in Su Kexin’s house had been spoilt for some time, that was why Gu Chi could easily open the door.Once he entered, he saw Su Kexin with her right arm raised while her left hand was reaching for a towel hurriedly in an attempt to cover herself. She was so flustered that she had even forgotten to turn off the shower and the water was splashing on her wound Gu Chi felt a tad angry watching how Su Kexin could not manage herself. He marched over, held Su Kexin in his arms, and turned off the shower.“Su Kexin, why are you so dumb.” Gu Chi could not help to chide her. He immediately grabbed her arm and checked her wound. Slough discharge was forming due to the wound getting wet and he got angrier. "How could you bathe yourself with this kind of showerhead?"While Gu Chi was reprimanding her, Su Kexin kept quiet. She felt as if her head was about to explode!After Gu Chi had scolded a few rounds, he noticed that Su Kexin had not said a word. He frowned and looked
Su Kexin had never imagined that after so many years of being independent, there would come a day when someone would take care of her when she was injured, feed her, and tidy the house for her.It was as if all the lack of love and care over the years was being made up for. The most bizarre aspect was that the man was someone of high status who never needed to take care of anyone else before this.Su Kexin felt a piece of her heart had melted as if it would completely dissolve at any moment. She closed her eyes to hide away the emotions stirring up inside.‘Gu Chi... could you please not treat me so well? I’m afraid I will fall completely in...’After the bath, Su Kexin and Gu Chi went back out to the living room. Su Kexin felt bad as Gu Chi was all wet from bathing her. She went to get some of her larger sized sportswear from the cupboard, but before she passed him the clothes, she tried her luck again. “You’re staying here for the night for real?”Gu Chi casually answered as he
While Lin Xiaoru was taking a bath, Gu Yihan went onto the balcony to smoke some cigarettes. One stick after another, he slowly filled up the entire ashtray.This was the first time in his life that he felt such an unbearable sense of regret.He regretted that he left without a word two years ago, that he got engaged to Lin Xiaoru, but what he regretted most was how he had foolishly humiliated Su Kexin time and time again!He had driven away the woman he loved most, step by step. Who could he blame now that things had turned out this way?Su Kexin now had Gu Chi with her...When Gu Yihan thought of Gu Chi, the fingers holding the cigarette pinched harder. He remembered that when he had shown Gu Chi the photos of Su Kexin, Gu Chi had chosen to trust Su Kexin without any hesitation or second thought. ‘Perhaps Gu Chi had already investigated it and that was why he was calm. However, regardless of what the reason was, at least he had not hurt Su Kexin.’The stark contrast of both t
Su Kexin had not expected such a direct question from Gu Yihan. She was shocked at first but later frowned. “I’m sorry editor-in-chief, but I do not want to answer any non-work-related questions.” She turned around to leave but Gu Yihan marched over and grabbed her by the wrist.Gu Yihan sounded anxious. “I’m not asking this as your editor-in-chief. I’m asking this as your ex-boyfriend, or perhaps... as your current friend.”He did not go home the whole night, thinking about the issue with Su Kexin. He realized that what bothered him the most was the marriage between Su Kexin and Gu Chi.He used to think that Su Kexin only married Gu Chi for his money, but now, he was determined on making another conclusion. If she had not married him for money, then there were only two other possibilities that made her agree to the marriage with Gu Chi. The first was because of love, the second was because she had no other choice.Gu Yihan could not get himself to believe the former. Even if two y
Su Kexin managed to sit through the whole meeting though with much difficulty and quickly returned to her cubicle after it ended. She was indecisive at first but later decided to meet with Sis Zheng at her table during the lunch break.“Sis Zheng, may I ask you something?”Sis Zheng had been a seasoned reporter for more than 10 years. She had previously worked with a newspaper company but later found it tiring to chase after the latest news day after day. Hence, she switched over to a magazine company to work as an editor on magazine interviews.“What is it?” Sis Zheng and Su Kexin had a good work relationship, so she easily accepted Su Kexin’s query.Su Kexin bit her lips but still decided to ask, “I’d like to ask you about the kidnapping case ten years ago involving the Gu family’s second young master.”Sis Zheng had not expected that Su Kexin would suddenly ask about this. She was stunned at first but later had a rather nervous expression. “Kexin, why are you asking about this?
