Gu Yu looked back as if he could sense her watching. Although it was pitch black at night and the surroundings were dark, he quickly spotted her slender figure leaning against the railing, looking down from the balcony of their apartment.
Xu Weilai’s heart skipped a beat when she saw him turn, for she had wanted to send him off secretly and never expected him to look back.
“Was it telepathy since we’re both worried about each other?” she wondered.
“Is Gu Yu already pining for me?” she mused.
A sweet sensation instantly grew in her heart and began to spread throughout every inch of her body. Eventually, even her face was glowing with bliss.
She then raised her hand and gestured a heart towards Gu Yu although she was unsure if he could see it or not.
Standing still, Gu Yu raised his head and stared at her for a long time with his jet black eyes before he turned and got into the car quickly. The car then sped off.
It was as if he wouldn’t be able to leave if he stayed a second longer.
After the car disappeared into the night, Xu Weilai turned and returned to her room. However, after she laid down in bed again, she tossed and turned and had a hard time falling asleep.
The bed, the room and the apartment felt too big and empty.
Gu Yu had only left for a short while and yet she was already beginning to miss him.
Xu Weilai was disappointed with herself when she realised what she was feeling. “Why am I acting like a young girl who’s in love? I’m already married to Gu Yu,” she thought.
“But..” she hesitated.
Perhaps it was because she had lost him before, she felt that it hadn’t been easy for Gu Yu and her to reach this stage in their relationship and everything seemed surreal. She constantly had the illusion that she was treading on thin ice.
The night was too silent and since Xu Weilai was alone, her imagination inevitably began to run wild.
Hitting herself on the head, she closed her eyes and forced herself to sleep.
The next day, Xiao Chun’s car arrived at the foot of Xu Weilai’s apartment at 9 a.m.
Xu Weilai stuffed her swimsuit into her luggage bag while she talked to Xiao Chun on the phone. She then checked if she had forgotten anything.
“Little Weilai, even if you don’t bring anything, you could just buy whatever you need when we reach there. I have the money for you to spend,” Xiao Chun assured.
“Alright, I’m all packed up. I’ll come down now,” Xu Weilai replied.
After she zipped up her luggage bag and carried her tiny backpack, held her phone in one hand and the luggage in the other before she left the house and went downstairs.
Xiao Chun had changed her car. She used to drive a big red sports car but this time, it was a huge, black G-class car. It was quite cool for a lady to drive such a large car.
After Xu Weilai opened the door to the passenger seat and got into the car, dumped her suitcase onto the back seat and fastened her seatbelt before she smiled and said, “Let’s go!”
Xiao Chun then slammed on the accelerator and the car sped off.
As it was a weekend, there were fewer commuters on the road and the traffic was smooth. Furthermore, the weather was exceptionally good and sunny and the azure sky stretched across the endless horizon.
Xu Weilai turned on the speaker and the sweet voice of a female celebrity could be heard. She was singing the song, ‘One is Like the Summer, One is Like the Fall’.
She could not help but smile and turn to look at Xiao Chun. “Chunchun, are you still listening to this song?” she asked.
This song was their favorite song when they were students. It was akin to a song about their friendship and was quite popular back in those days.
Their favorite line was “If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t believe that friends are more loyal than lovers.”
