Gu Yezhi’s took her towards the sink and let the cold water wash down her hands, instantly relieving the tingling sensation on the back of her hand.
Bai Qingyan’s tears fell down.
He cared about her.
“Yan Yan… It hurts a lot, doesn’t it? Don’t cry, I will immediately fire the chef, let the doctor come over…”
Gu Yezhi saw her tears and felt pain in his heart, he hated that he couldn’t cut the chef in pieces.
In a panic, he stretched out his hand to wipe the tears on her face…
Her tears were moist and hot… They were like acid, dripping directly into his heart, slowly destroying the protective wall that he had built around it.
“Yezhi… Ow… oh…”
Bai Qingyan stretched out her hand and held onto his waist, her small face buried in his arms. Her tears, like beads from a broken necklace, fell continuously while she felt extremely wronged.
Yes, she was sorry for him in her last life. But not in this life!
Why is he so cold to her? She wanted to atone, couldn’t he give her a chance?
Gu Yezhi reflexively reached out and patted her on the back, then his hands suddenly froze. His face darkened, already regretting his reaction just now. But that reaction was almost instinctive.
He immediately retreated two steps like he’d been electrocuted. His eyes returned to their indifferent state and he asked: “Bai Qingyan, it’s not that hot, do you need to pretend so hard?”
Bai Qingyan: “…..”
She looked up at him with tearful eyes, somewhat surprised at his inconsistent response. She tried hard to understand him clearly, only to see the indifference on his face. When she returned to her senses, Gu Yezhi had already returned to his position.
Bai Qingyan’s face sank. She felt that her heart was riding a roller coaster, thrown up high reaching the heavens and then ruthlessly smashed down to hell. She was happy when she saw him worried about her and even thought that he still cared about her. But in the next moment… Her expectation seems to have been smashed into the mud by him, and grounded to pieces.
This is a punishment for her crimes in her previous life!
Butler Li Shu came in and urgently treated Bai Qingyan’s hand. After seeing the wound wasn’t serious, he gave a sigh of relief. Li Shu whispered: “Madam, the doctor is here.”
Hearing this, Bai Qingyan calmed down. She glanced at Gu Yezhi who was eating as if nothing had happened. She bit her lip and walked out of the restaurant.
Li Shu sent a surprised look to Gu Yezhi. Gu Yezhi himself, who sat firm like a mountain, was puzzled. [Did they just… quarrel?]
Bai Qingyan applied ointment to her burn and, after dressing it, went straight back to the bedroom. Sitting on the carpet, she looked out of the dark window with a confused look on her face.
Her heart seems to have opened a hole, and she was deep inside, where the sunshine couldn’t touch her. Turns out it wasn’t an illusion. Gu Yezhi, who was deeply in love with her, really disappeared. Today’s Gu Yezhi, she can’t guess his mind, can’t see through his heart.
Bai Qingyan lowered her eyes slightly. She heard the door being pushed open, light and familiar footsteps getting closer and closer. Then something was placed on the tea table.
Bai Qingyan originally thought that she drew a scheme for him in her previous life, but she sadly found out at the moment that she could clearly distinguish his footsteps and the smell of his body…
She is… in love with him.
But he did not love her.
If only she still loved Gu Hang, she wouldn’t be so miserable because of Gu Yezhi’s indifference.
“Bai Qingyan, come here!”
Gu Yezhi sat on the sofa, reached up to rip off the shirt buttons on the neckline and revealed a portion of his collarbone. His voice was cold.
Bai Qingyan sat motionless. The Gu Yezhi who lived in her previous life would not be so indifferent to her, nor would he scold her for being melodramatic after she was scalded. She had lost the Gu Yezhi who loved her deeply.
Bai Qingyan’s face was pressed on her knee, her head hung down in distress.
