151-chapter-67

The meal was lively, and both families, who had been living in S Country for a long time, hadn’t celebrated the New Year so heartily in years.

After the meal, the He family didn’t rush to leave. After leaving the seats for a while, He Chenran drove the parents to the nearby fireworks platform to watch the fireworks. When he returned, he happened to see Gu Jingxu pulling Chi You’s arm into the bedroom.

He raised an eyebrow, turned around at the stairs, and went downstairs alone.

Gu Jingxu held Chi You’s wrist in his palm, not daring to exert too much force to avoid hurting her, but also not daring to let go. In his nervous state, the tips of his fingers trembled slightly.

He had a lot of things he wanted to say to Chi You, but now that she was in his bedroom, he didn’t know where to start.

Before he could say anything, Chi You raised her hand with a “snap” and turned on the light.

Gu Jingxu instinctively squinted his eyes slightly. Then he saw Chi You tilting her face up, looking at him expressionlessly.

This was the first time she had looked at him after their silent treatment.

The girl’s complexion was not good, as if she might turn around and open the door to leave at any moment.

Gu Jingxu felt an unexplained fear, and his lips slightly parted, saying, “Chi You… I really miss—”

“You didn’t listen to what I said,” Chi You said slowly.

She didn’t show the obedient appearance in front of adults, and she seemed a bit difficult to get along with. Gu Jingxu’s heart trembled, and he immediately apologized, “I’m sorry… I know I shouldn’t have kept it from you for so long, but I have no feelings for anyone else—”

“Why didn’t you eat properly when I told you to?”

Gu Jingxu paused, and his panicked brain reacted after a moment, “Ah…”

Chi You: “?”

She opened her red lips and said mercilessly, “Or are you deliberately making yourself look like this so that I’ll feel sorry for you and reconcile with you? Gu Jingxu, if that’s the case, we can never be together in this lifetime.”

The implication in her words was that there might still be a chance for them to reconcile.

However, Gu Jingxu, who never understood these words, only paid attention to the literal meaning.

Chi You… hated him.

Gu Jingxu shook his head almost immediately. His face turned pale, and his voice weakened, “I didn’t mean that, Chi You… I didn’t expect to see you here… I…”

The man’s expression looked fragile, as if he were a delicate object that could shatter with a slight touch.

Chi You’s fingers by her side couldn’t help but move lightly.

Unable to resist, she raised her hand and touched Gu Jingxu’s cheek.

Gu Jingxu’s voice immediately disappeared. He looked at Chi You’s face in confusion and with a hint of expectation, wanting to hold her hand. However, Chi You had already retracted her hand.

“You’ve lost so much weight; it doesn’t look good,” Chi You’s tone was still not very good, but it had softened compared to before.

Gu Jingxu slowly understood her meaning.

His heart thumped rapidly. After a moment, he pursed his lips and asked, “Then if I… if I eat well, will you talk to me?”

The careful appearance of the man wouldn’t make Chi You feel sorry for him, but it would improve her mood. So, the corner of the girl’s lips lifted slightly, “Say what? Are you going to tell me that the person you saw that day wasn’t your white moonlight? President Gu, I didn’t expect you to be quite good at hiding things.”

Gu Jingxu’s expression immediately fell. “She’s not…”

He had already explained this to her in numerous messages, but Chi You had read them several times and couldn’t be bothered to listen to him again.

Chi You waved her hand impatiently, ready to say something, but Gu Jingxu suddenly grabbed her hand.

He had been holding on until now, but finally couldn’t bear it.

Gu Jingxu’s long eyelashes drooped, and when he looked into her eyes, his eye sockets had quickly turned red. “Chi You… It’s fine if you ignore me, but please don’t say… don’t say such things…”

Large teardrops, like soybeans, instantly fell onto Chi You’s wrist.

Chi You’s pupils slightly contracted as she watched Gu Jingxu silently shed tears.

“I’ve only liked you, there has never been any white moonlight. Even if there was, it would only be you. I know you’re angry… I did something wrong. I’ve thought a lot during the days you ignored me. I just want to be with you. I’m willing to do anything. Chi You… Give me, give me another chance, okay?”

Gu Jingxu’s tears were hot, and Chi You was momentarily unresponsive. He had finished speaking, but his words continued to echo in her ears.

Looking up at him, Chi You saw his long eyelashes clustered with wetness. After a moment’s pause, she uttered a single word, “Mm.”

Gu Jingxu’s eye sockets instantly reddened even more.

Chi You widened her eyes. “I agreed, and you’re still crying?!”

Gu Jingxu raised his hand, pursed his lips, and wiped the corners of his eyes.

He felt so helpless, scaring Chi You like this.

Indeed, Chi You was frightened.

She hadn’t expected Gu Jingxu to cry. She had come prepared, ready not to easily yield no matter what Gu Jingxu said.

But she hadn’t expected him to cry…

She was caught off guard, suddenly realized the situation, and after a moment, raised her head to say coldly, “No crying next time.”

Gu Jingxu, with moist eyes, obediently nodded, “Mm.”

Chi You took a deep breath and felt that this man was truly frightening.

After a while, she sighed slightly, saying, “I’m tired today. Maybe we’ll see each other again.”

She struggled a bit to withdraw her hand, and Gu Jingxu’s gaze followed her. His eyes were filled with expectation.

“Can I send you messages then?” He asked.

Chi You replied indifferently, “I haven’t blocked you.”

Gu Jingxu’s face showed a bit of loneliness. “But you’ve never replied…”

Here it came again.
