Gu Yezhi’s Rage Part (II)
As he led Bai Qingyan to the car, Gu Yezhi remembered that she didn’t love him. He instinctively helped her and forgot that he was trying to be mean. Gu Yezhi loosened his grip on Bai Qingyan’s pale hands and looked out the window, his face as cold as ice.
Bai Qingyan also looked out the window, her eyes gazing at the city’s flickering neon lights and heavy traffic. Her lips were curved slightly in a small mocking smile.
She grew up hearing her aunt call her a bastard child because she felt that Bai Qingyan was freeloading off the Bai Family. Because of her aunt, when Bai Qingyan was in high school, she had to study and work as a part-timer.
It made her uncle sad, though. He didn’t want her to work part-time. His salary was enough to support a family and two children’s tuition fees. Bai Qingyan working while others her age played made him feel useless and inferior, which was something he did not want to feel.
So her aunt became more and more dissatisfied and used every opportunity she had to scold Bai Qingyan. Even when she went to college and lived in the campus’ dorm, her aunt still came to complain to her.
As Bai Qingyan remembered her past, her eyes watered slightly. She had never seen her mother, aside from an old photograph. It was obvious where her looks came from. Whenever other people spoke ill of her, Bai Qingyan felt that her mother wasn’t that kind of person.
Maybe something happened in that year. Until she died in her previous life, Bai Qingyan didn’t even know who her father was. But that didn’t matter. If her father had been a responsible man, he would’ve come back for them.
But he didn’t.
She held no hope that he’d return, but whenever she thought about her father, she still felt sad. She felt like the world had abandoned her.
Her eyes reddened. “Yezhi… “
Bai Qingyan turned around and, forgetting their unhappiness last night, threw herself at Gu Yezhi’s arms, her tears wetting his shirt.
In her past life, aside from her uncle, only Gu Yezhi would treat her sincerely and protect her. She held his hand tightly, breathing in his scent as her tears streamed down her face. Only when she was alone with him that she’d allow herself to be fragile.
Bai Qingyan thought that he was indifferent to her. Many things had changed since her rebirth, he probably didn’t even love her anymore.
But just now, when he saw Bai Xiaojin bullying her, he got very angry and that proved that he was still concerned about her.
Whatever happened from now on, Bai Qingyan knew that she’d be with him, even if it was an atonement, also… She loved him.
Gu Yezhi had watched Bai Qingyan’s every move from the corner of his eyes.
His fingers were in a constant movement against the seats: clench, loosen, clench, loosen… In his heart, two little men fought for supremacy.
One said: You love her, she’s very sad, go hug her, coax her.
The other one said: Don’t go, isn’t it enough for you to be pitiable? She doesn’t love you! What she needs now isn’t your embrace. Even if you gave her the whole world, she wouldn’t want it.
Gu Yezhi wavered and, eventually, his pride won over his heart and he sat still.
From birth, he was the son of heaven, treated like a prince.
Gu Lao-zi was in his forties when, after much suffering, he finally had a child. He couldn’t help but spoil him, Gu Yezhi had whatever he wanted.
After moving to T State, he found two like-minded friends and founded the BG Group. The business was booming and the amount of money he held in his hands was no exaggeration.
Gu Yezhi, who had always been proud, had fallen for Bai Qingyan. He loved her so much, but it was a pity that she…
Gu Yezhi was shocked when she suddenly plunged into his arms. Although he had held her countless times, now Gu Yezhi felt that Bai Qingyan really needed him.
