Chapter 3: You Died For My Sake (1)
Bai Qingyan no longer looked at the sky without seeing the face of Gu Yezhi in the starry night. It seems he’s taken a permanent residence in the place which housed her bleeding heart, and it seemed a second chance in this lifetime to mend the past regrets had been given to her.
She drifted back five years to the past when all evil and suffering had yet to exist.
She dreamt a better dream — dreamt of Gu Yezhi’s fair skin free of the red blood staining his upright body and dreamt of her name rolling from his lips over and over…
Bai Qingyan fluttered her eyes open. “Gu Yezhi… I hope I’m not dreaming. I hope that you’re real… I’m sorry…”
Then, she stretched out her hand and wiped the fallen tears from the corner of her eyes.
God, He gave her a second chance. Let it be like this for no longer will she fail Gu Yezhi’s love. And Gu Hang, she’d not let him pass of damage he caused to her and Gu Yezhi.
“I want to go see you, Yezhi.” Bai Qingyan muttered softly to herself, intent on seeing the man who loved her deeply while she carelessly ignored his deep-seated foundation of love in the past.
She hurriedly changed in a new pair of clothes and donned a mask on as she walked out of the villa.
Bai Qingyan and Gu Yezhi’s marriage, it was one held away from the face of the world. Their wedding ceremony was grand, held abroad in a rich, foreign country.
Gu Yezhi’s name spread far and wife, the BG Group (his creation) held deep foundations in foreign nations. His friends, all of great importance, attended the marriage abroad. But a many of his relatives and friends in China and the media reporters who knew of Gu Yezhi’s marriage knew not the identity of his wife.
Were it any other way, Gu Yezhi would have chosen to reveal her to the world, but Bai Qingyan, previously, did not wish to be known as the wife of Gu Yezhi. So, she wore a mask.
Never did she think that she’d receive a call from Gu Hang halfway through.
“Qingyan, won’t you head downtown to the coffee shop we always frequent to? I have something I wish to tell you.”
Hearing Gu Hang’s sweet alluring voice, the grip on her hand tightened. Veins highlighted the back of her rosy hand, drowning in a sea of hatred while her beautiful pupils shrank and burst with great hatred.
The taxi driver who threw and inadvertent glance saw Bai Qingyan’s countenance and felt a sudden chill. He stamped on the gas pedal as a sudden reaction, but after calming himself, he refused to look back at the rearview mirror.
The look… it was demonic.
“Qingyan? Yan Yan?” Gu Hang did not receive a reply so he called her name once more.
Bai Qingyan gritted her teeth and pushed down the irrepressible hatred arising from the depths of her heart. She breathed deeply, said her farewells, and hung up immediately.
Leaning back on the seat, the hatred in her eyes only grew further. “Gu Hang, in this life, the debts you owe me, it is time to pay!”
Her previous self had been blind, played, and fooled around by Gu Hang’s vicious nature, but in this life, the role should be reversed. She’ll lead him cruelly under the palm of her hands. It’s silly, foolish, and shameless, this she knows, but Gu Hang, he killed his own blood, Gu Yezhi.
Had it not been for Gu Hang’s confirmation stating she loved Gu Yezhi before her death, she’d never come to the realization that she’d fallen for him. She’s not sure when the thought of loving him came to be, but it happened.
Bai Qingyan retrieved her rationale. Her head lowered, gaze locked on the mobile phone. Her eyes seemed distant yet a cold, fiery gaze burned through.
Her gaze turned to her legs full of vigor. She scoffed and a soft chuckle escaped from her lips.
She remembered Gu Hang, remembered he once said the car accident was premeditated. How ironic. Today was the day the accident would occur. So he thinks so full of himself that she, Bai Qingyan, loved him desperately enough to save him from his impending throes?
Gu Hang, you…
Looking at her fair legs, Bai Qingyan’s clenched her teeth and tightened her grip.
She was twenty years of age, a junior at the Acropolis Film and Television University. She dreamed of becoming an actress, but today’s event from the past left her disabled. Her dream ran away and became nothing but a figment of her whimsical imagination.
Gu Hang, he was good. He destroyed her dream, ruined her life, and ruthlessly killed Gu Yezhi!
Gu Hang, wait for me. I’ll make your life a living hell!
