Chapter 4: You Died For My Sake (2)
The taxi car reached the place of her destination.
It was a summer evening. The sky streaked a deep blue and the sun celebrated a theme of yellow, free and bright. The trees rose to the occasion, often donning their best verdant hues.
As Bai Qingyan stepped foot out of the taxi car, she felt as if she’d been cooked and fried in the stove. She came to this place with means to see Gu Hang and there was no need to hide her face so she pulled off the mask and put it away in her bag. Against the sizzling hotness, the sun shone elegantly against her gentle features.
She walked towards the cafe with a steady and fierce look in her starry eyes.
She’d have to cross past the streetwalk to reach her destination.
Her mind drew back to her previous life.
She remembered clearly the bitter tragedy — Gu Hang stood across the other side of the street. His face lightened as he saw her figure and quickly ran towards her. At the same time, a car coated in deep black rode to his direction just as fast. If he did not move in time, he’d only meet a serious case of injuries. At the time, Bai Qingyan loved this man deeply. Seeing Gu Hang, she, without thinking, hurriedly ran over and pushed him away while she bore the brunt of the hit and run accident. Since then, she was broken and her leg became disabled, no longer in use.
Upon learning this had been planned by Gu Hang all along, Bai Qingyan’s fist clenched.
She was desperate for Gu Hang’s love…
But in this lifetime…
Bai Qingyan stood under the western made street lamp and looked towards Gu Hang while attempting to quell the raging fire brewing in her heart. She did not wish for him to see her deep-seated hatred.
Gu Hang wore a grey shirt and black trousers, a stark contrast to the summer vibes. He was tall, charming, and beautiful. His eyes were blocked with sunglasses on which further added a sense of mystery in his aura and many young women could not help but turn their heads his way.
He was an attractive man and Bai Qingyan could attest to this.
“Yan Yan, you’re here!” Gu Hang smiled happily and shouted to Bai Qingyan.
She wore a light colored skirt, the length just above her knee which accentuated the fine lines of her curves vividly. Her hair dangled freely all the way down her waist was soft and beautiful. She looked like an angel as if a circle of halo scattered above her soft hair.
But beneath her beauty stands a veil full of hatred like the poisonous datura flower,[note]Datura is one of the most toxic and poisonous plants on earth, it belongs to the “Witches’ Weeds” along with deadly Nightshade Henbane and Mandrake. Datura is dangerous even to touch, so much care needs to be taken when around this plant whether it is fresh or dried.

Gu Hang could not see her poisonous hatred for under the sunshine boughs, he felt she looked angelic and beautiful that it’d be enough to stir one’s soul… but… Gu Yezhi had already touched her. The thought of it sickened him.
Bai Qingyan heard Gu Hang’s voice and she lowered her head slightly.
Her eyes flickered, unsure what to do, but at the corner of her eyes, she saw a black car parked at the corner ready to turn its engine and start.
Sure enough! All these plans are really good… Gu Hang, you truly are…
She felt foolish for having been fooled in her past life.
She bit her lips and her eyes were now unwavering and determined.
She’d have to send a big gift to her important customer on the first day of her rebirth, she thought.
At the same time, Gu Hang glimpsed a look at the black car parked in the corner. A light smile rose on his charming face.
He allowed Bai Qingyan to marry Gu Yezhi without a fight. Now its been months since their marriage. He wants to have a try at her.
What would Gu Yezhi do were he to find out? If Bai Qingyan became a damaged good, would Gu Yezhi abandon her…?
Regardless, it’s worth the try.
This plan in his chess board wouldn’t affect anything of primal importance in the future. At best, it’ll only hinder the plan for a few slight months.
Ah… it’s a pity that such a beautiful chess piece will be ruined like this…
Gu Hang’s lips curved to a deeper smile.
Sitting in driver’s seat, Gu Hang gestured an ‘OK’ signal to Qin Xiaomeng.
Qin Xiaomeng looked at Bai Qingyan with full hatred in her eyes. Her heart set blazed on fire when she saw many men and women looked and gaze at Bai Qingyan’s beauty.
She gritted her teeth. “You stole Mr. Gu from me… today I’ll send you to the hells of despair, Bai Qingyan!”
Gu Hang wanted Bai Qingyan, a pawn in his chess of game to become disabled, but she, Qin Xiaomeng, wanted to take her life away. Were she to die, she’d become Gu Yezhi’s new wife!
It’s all this woman’s fault. I would have successfully slept in Gu Yezhi’s bed that night had it not been for this bitch hindering my progress!
“Bai Qingyan, go to hell!” Qin Xiaoming pressed her foot on the gas pedal. Her face looked like that of a wild, ferocious animal.
