Chapter 111: I Won’t Do It Again (2)
“Yan Yan… ” Gu Yezhi called her softly. Being careful not to wake her, he lifted the quilt and the pajamas she wore. The sight of her red, inflamed skin filled his eyes with remorse.
Upon hearing about how Bai Qingyan had met Gu Hang earlier, his heart had been filled with anger and jealousy. But now, those feelings had disappeared.
The more he stared at her, the more distressed he became. He lightly touched her red skin, the Gu Yezhi covered his wife again and quickly left the room.
He drove out and bought an ointment for her. By the time he returned, it was already one in the morning. He returned to the bedroom and smeared a thin layer of ointment over Bai Qingyan’s entire body.
Gu Yezhi held her face tenderly and landed a kiss on her forehead. “I’m sorry, Yan Yan. It won’t happen again.” No matter how angry he got in the future, he would never hurt Bai Qingyan’s body again. Watching her suffer hurt him more than it hurt her.
His movements were light, so Bai Qingyan didn’t wake up.
In the next morning, Bai Qingyan woke up in Gu Yezhi’s arms. Her face was buried on his muscular chest, his arms were around her thin waist, and her legs were pinned by his. Her long eyelashes trembled gently, staring thoughtfully at Gu Yezhi’s sleeping face.
He looked so good.
She couldn’t help but think about the child they lost. If it had been born in their previous lives, it would surely have looked lovely. Subconsciously, her hand touched her lower abdomen.
Unfortunately, it was impossible.
It was impossible in the last life, and impossible in this life because they were going to divorce. The Gu Yezhi of this life didn’t need her.
Bai Qingyan bit her lip softly and climbed out of Gu Yezhi’s arms.
“Yan Yan?” Even though she tried being careful, Gu Yezhi still woke up. His eyes were still bleary as he reached out and rubbed her head. “Awake already?”
“Um,” Bai Qingyan answered flatly, without rushing into his arms as usual. Pushing away his hand, she got out of bed and went into the bathroom to wash.
Left behind, Gu Yezhi stayed on the bed and stared at her thin back. His emotions got the best of him, and he beat a fist on the bed.
She was angry. He was too fierce yesterday. But he felt so angry that she had met Gu Hang behind his back.
He could tolerate her love for Gu Hang as long as it was inside her heart. He believed that as long as Bai Qingyan stayed with him and he treated her well, she’d eventually fall in love with him.
But Gu Yezhi’s mania for cleanliness wouldn’t allow him to push aside the image of Bai Qingyan being near Gu Hang. Although he did not see it with his own eyes, his imagination wasn’t as limited.
Just thinking of Bai Qingyan’s charming appearance almost drove Gu Yezhi crazy. Hence why he was so incensed when he got home, immediately dragging her to the shower.
While Gu Yezhi suffered within his thoughts, Bai Qingyan finished washing up and headed to the closet. He quickly headed inside the bathroom to wash.
Meanwhile, Bai Qingyan stood in front of the closet, her beautiful fingers sliding over the many rows of beautiful clothes. They were all bought by Gu Yezhi.
She was not so brazen as to wear the clothes he had bought for her after they divorced.
A moment later, she squatted and dragged out a box she had brought with her when she got married. It was full of clothes given to her by Bai Jian.
Back then, she didn’t let Bai Jian tell her aunt and Bai Xiaojin about her marriage, because her aunt was in charge of the family’s money.
Gu Yezhi had given Bai Jian a blank check as a dowry, but Bai Jian refused it. Since he didn’t have much money, he only bought Bai Qingyan some clothes.
Bai Qingyan was still very grateful.
She picked one at random and put them on. Then she started packing up what she had brought from her maiden home.
There were so few things; she was so poor.
Gu Yezhi gave her everything.
Bai Qingyan finished packing and closed the box. She started dragging it out of the room… Until a big hand stopped her.
