Chapter 172: Don’t Leave, Hug Me to Sleep

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation        Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

Chu Yu looked troubled by Gu Qingcheng’s question and couldn’t finish his sentence.

Gu Qingcheng knew that Chu Yu was afraid Huo Sicheng would question him, so she comforted him, saying, “I said I would protect you.”

“This…” Chu Yu’s eyes showed a hint of complexity and nervousness. “Actually, President Huo…”

Just as Chu Yu opened his mouth, Gu Qingcheng’s WeChat phone rang.

Fortunately, Huo Sicheng was asleep. If she had been beside him, the WeChat ringtone would have woken him up.

She took out her phone and saw several missed calls on the screen. Qi Shaoze had called the most, followed by Li Jing.

It was Li Jing who called her on WeChat, and she answered without hesitation.

Li Jing, the elegant and gentle man, saw Gu Qingcheng on the video call and heaved a sigh of relief. “Qingcheng, are you not coming to the Peach Lotus Cup today?”

“No,” Gu Qingcheng replied to Li Jing. “Missing one day won’t hurt. If the Peach Lotus Cup officials can’t wait, they can find another coach to replace me.”

Her participation in the Peach Lotus Cup was primarily to uncover who had betrayed her in her previous life.

Now that she had discovered that Chu He was behind it, her participation didn’t matter much.

The Peach Lotus Cup was an official competition, and as a teacher, she couldn’t show favoritism to her students. So, the students from Royal Dance would have to rely on their own efforts to succeed.

Li Jing was surprised by Gu Qingcheng’s response. After a moment of thought, he said, “You can take a break for the next two days; there won’t be any matches for our school. Deal with your matters first, then come back to the venue. Your presence as the principal of Diyi is a great encouragement to our students.”

“Alright,” Gu Qingcheng agreed.

Li Jing nodded and added, “By the way, I ran into Qi Shaoze. He seemed lost, searching for you everywhere. He asked me about your whereabouts several times.”

A complicated look crossed Gu Qingcheng’s face. “Don’t worry about Qi Shaoze.”

“It’s not my concern,” Li Jing replied. “I understand that you’re with President Huo. If I wanted to interfere, I would have informed him. He asked me several times, but I told him I didn’t know your whereabouts.”

Gu Qingcheng ended the video call with Li Jing and turned to Chu Yu, who was about to leave. “Tell me.”

After considering it, Chu Yu decided to tell Gu Qingcheng the truth. She could protect herself, and President Huo was worried she wouldn’t tell the truth.

Seeing Gu Qingcheng’s genuine feelings for President Huo, he hoped the couple would continue to be loving and avoid further conflicts.

“President Huo wasn’t poisoned. He was affected by a drug that can only be bought on the black market,” Chu Yu explained bluntly. “This drug, referred to as ‘Y,’ takes effect very quickly, within ten minutes. Both men and women under its influence become uncontrollable, driven by insatiable desires until they’re satisfied. If the issue isn’t resolved during the drug’s effects, the person experiences excruciating pain and could die if it continues.”

Gu Qingcheng’s pupils dilated as she couldn’t believe that Huo Sicheng had been subjected to such a drug.

Huo Sicheng hadn’t told her everything and had left in a hurry, fearing he’d lose control in her presence.

Until now, she wasn’t sure if he could be humane, but regardless, the effects of this drug were enough to make him suffer.

She couldn’t imagine how much pain Huo Sicheng had endured when he left her.

In an instant, her heart surged with boundless anger, and her eyes turned scarlet.

“When I took the helicopter to the Gu family to pick up President Huo, Gu Mei was with him, ” Chu Yu continued, sensing Gu Qingcheng’s anger and speaking carefully. “But don’t worry, Madam, no woman other than you can touch President Huo. When Gu Mei tried to embrace him, he pushed her away.”

“No, no, no, something’s wrong…” She realized that she’d only heard Chu Yu mention Gu Mei, not the hint that Chu Yu had unintentionally revealed.

That’s right, it had to be Gu Mei.

Gu Tianhao wouldn’t do such a thing. He still had plans to discuss the energy business with Huo Sicheng, and he wouldn’t want him to leave the Gu family abruptly.

Chu He wouldn’t do such a thing either. She depended on Gu Tianhao for her livelihood, and provoking him would only make her life harder.

Only Gu Mei!

In the dining room, Gu Mei had thrown plates and flirted with Huo Sicheng just to get his attention. Especially when Gu Mei referred to him as her brother-in-law, it made her skin crawl and her stomach turn.

She knew that Gu Mei was replaying the same tactics she had used to seduce Qin Jun in her previous life to steal her husband. Gu Mei couldn’t stand seeing her being loved, especially by a man.

Unfortunately for Gu Mei, Huo Sicheng wasn’t Qin Jun. No matter how much she tried to seduce him, his heart belonged to Gu Qingcheng.

She dared to seduce her husband, Huo Sicheng!

Well, two could play at that game!

“Take me to the garage,” she said after taking a step, realizing she needed to stay by Huo Sicheng’s side. After hesitating for a moment, she added, “Someone will deliver a package later. When it arrives, bring it to me. Also, don’t mention that I asked about this to Huo Sicheng.”

Chu Yu replied, “Yes, Madam.”

Gu Qingcheng opened the door but turned back to Chu Yu, who was about to leave. “Chu Yu, thank you.”

Chu Yu was taken aback by her words, and his legs went weak. He looked at Gu Qingcheng in shock, but she had disappeared.

It was the first time in his life that Gu Qingcheng had thanked him, and it left him feeling uneasy.

He collected himself and left the room.

Meanwhile, Gu Qingcheng returned to her room and took out her phone. A vicious look filled her eyes, and after a moment of hesitation, she opened her contacts and sent a message.

Then, she walked to the bed and lay down beside Huo Sicheng. She stared at his eyebrows, eyes, high nose bridge, and thin lips without blinking. She etched his appearance into her heart and soul.

Huo Sicheng slowly woke up in the evening. When he opened his eyes and saw Gu Qingcheng by his side, his heart warmed, and his eyes were tender.

He planted a kiss on her lips and quietly watched her sleep.

“Hubby, ” her voice was hoarse and gentle as she called out, “When did you wake up? Why didn’t you wake me up?”

“I just woke up,” Huo Sicheng replied. “You’re weak; you should sleep more.”

Gu Qingcheng leaned forward and kissed Huo Sicheng on the lips. She got up and prepared to leave the bed.

Huo Sicheng wrapped his arm around her waist. “Where are you going?”

Gu Qingcheng heard the husky, soft, and alluring tone in Huo Sicheng’s voice, making her heart itch and tremble.

“I’ll get the doctor to check on you, and then I’ll cook for you.”

“No,” Huo Sicheng tightened his grip on Gu Qingcheng. “Don’t go. Stay with me.”

Gu Qingcheng’s breath caught, and her heart ached.

She could sense the fear in Huo Sicheng’s voice.

Was he afraid that she would leave him?

She turned around and looked at Huo Sicheng. Their eyes met, and she said,

“Hubby, I won’t leave you. Trust me.”

Huo Sicheng gazed deeply into Gu Qingcheng’s eyes, seeing the sincerity and passion within. It was even more passionate and fervent than the night she had proposed to him.

He slowly loosened his grip on her waist and said softly, “I believe you.”

Gu Qingcheng lowered her head and gave Huo Sicheng a quick kiss. She looked into his eyes and said, “Hubby, I have something serious to tell you.”

“What is it?” Huo Sicheng asked..
