Chi You pressed her lips for a moment, then said, “I’ll reply when I’m in a good mood.”

Gu Jingxu’s eyes lit up. “Can I come to see you?”

Chi You opened the bedroom door without looking back. “No one’s stopping you.”

Gu Jingxu unconsciously took a step forward. Hearing her words, his fingertips trembled, and a glint of moisture flashed in his eyes. Sensing it, he immediately turned around and wiped the corners of his eyes.

He almost cried in front of Chi You again.

When bidding farewell to the He family, Gu Jingxu stood by the car, his gaze fixed on the black tinted windows as if he could see the girl inside through them.

From the outside, his expression wasn’t visible, but the people inside the car could see him very clearly.

As the black car slowly started, the He family exchanged words. Suddenly, He Chenran laughed inexplicably. Leaning towards Chi You, he raised his chin slightly, “Crying?”

His voice was very soft, and his smile on his face was dazzling, “You guys are quite good at playing.”

Chi You’s face remained expressionless. She glanced at He Chenran and found that he was just like her—rotten to the core.

“Mind your own business.”

“Hmm, I won’t bother you guys,” He Chenran’s tone was frivolous.

Hearing this, Mother He turned her head and asked, “Mind what?”

He Chenran smiled and said, “Nothing, Mom. It’s just that Xiao You said she gets along well with Gu Jingxu.”

Chi You glared at him.

Mother He didn’t notice and chuckled, “That’s good. Mom hopes you make more good friends.”

Chi You’s heart softened, “Don’t worry, Mom.”

Just a few days after the Chinese New Year, when He Xing saw Gu Jingxu again, he noticed that he was no longer the ghostly figure from before.

He circled around Gu Jingxu in amazement, saying, “Is S Country treating people this well, or did you have a miraculous recovery?”

Gu Jingxu, holding a cup of coffee, looked up at him with indifference upon hearing this.

He Xing nodded immediately, “Yes, the dead look that didn’t care about anything. What about it? My treasure has finally forgiven you?”

He occasionally chatted with Chi You. Despite the awkward situation, he got along very well with her. He had said many good things about Gu Jingxu, fearing that she might really leave him.

Facing his reaction, Gu Jingxu just shook his head, “Not yet. I’m still pursuing her.”

He Xing asked in confusion, “Hmm? How are you pursuing her?”

Gu Jingxu sipped his coffee and replied, “I won’t tell you.”

At seven in the evening, Gu Jingxu entered with bags of food. Seeing Chi You’s slippers missing at the entrance, his eyes brightened. After changing his shoes, he walked in, putting the things in the refrigerator. Soon after, he heard the sound of the bathroom door opening.

He turned slightly, “Chi You, I bought your favorite—”

“Gu Jingxu, come here,” the girl softly spoke.

Gu Jingxu walked into the bathroom. In the misty air, the girl was draped in a bathrobe. She looked up at him, her eyes cold. “What are you staring at? Come here.”

Gu Jingxu’s heart skipped a beat.

His Adam’s apple rolled up and down in an instant. After a moment, he lifted his leg and stepped into the bathroom.

The fragrance of the shower gel in the bathroom was strong. Gu Jingxu knew it was the one Chi You often used. When he smelled this scent, related memories instantly surfaced in his mind.

His breathing unconsciously deepened, and he turned his head to hold his breath, attempting to clear his mind a bit.

Chi You noticed this small movement, and without blinking, she asked, “What are you thinking about?”

Gu Jingxu held a soft white towel in his hand, gently wiping Chi You’s long hair. Pausing for a moment, he looked at Chi You through the misty mirror and said, “Not thinking about anything.”

Chi You neither confirmed nor denied, “Hurry up, I’m hungry.”

“Okay.”

From the roots to the tips of her hair, the towel gradually became damp. Gu Jingxu’s view was filled with Chi You’s fair and beautiful shoulders and neck. He restrained himself from looking too much, but his Adam’s apple couldn’t help but move.

The mirror was covered in steam, and Chi You couldn’t see Gu Jingxu’s face. However, it seemed as if she knew what he was thinking. She softly asked, “Do you want to touch it?”

Gu Jingxu’s eyelids jumped suddenly. He lowered his gaze, trying to make Chi You turn around. “Not dried yet.”

Chi You tilted her face up, “Oh.”

She obediently turned around, but seeing her in this state, Gu Jingxu had an inexplicable bad feeling.

As expected, the next moment, Chi You took the towel from his hand, “You don’t need to do it, you can go back.”

Gu Jingxu’s heart suddenly sank, “Youyou…”

Chi You had already walked a few steps toward the mirror, raised her hand, and started drying her hair, as if she really wanted Gu Jingxu to leave then.

There was a moment of silence in his ears. Chi You’s hair wasn’t completely dry, but it had stopped dripping. She put down the towel, ready to leave the bathroom, but the man behind her suddenly grabbed her arm.

“I want to.”

Under the bathroom’s light, Gu Jingxu’s expression was clearly visible to her. She had a faint smile on her lips, but it didn’t fully form. Instead, she tilted her head and asked, “Hmm? What does President Gu want?”

Gu Jingxu sensed that she seemed to be in a good mood. Unable to resist, he approached a bit, not saying anything but pulling her into his arms, burying his head and tightly embracing Chi You.

Not being pushed away made him breathe a sigh of relief. He whispered, “I just wanted to hug you.”

Chi You’s eyes trembled slightly, her expression momentarily blank. She said, “Aren’t you already hugging me?”
