After returning to his room, Gu Juexi took a shower and headed to his bed. He sat there and picked up a photograph of Ye Yuwei. The photo frame had previously been destroyed by Ye Yuwei at his bedside, but he had already repaired it.
The photograph inside that photo frame was a picture that he had put together himself.
Knock, knock, knock.
“Come in,” Gu Juexi placed the photo on his bedside. He looked up and said, “Mom.”
Wen Jie closed the door behind her and walked towards her son.
Gu Juexi stood up and helped Wen Jie sit down. He then pulled a stool over and sat down opposite Wen Jie.
“I know about the family business. Your father is getting out of hand,” Wen Jie said in disappointment.
Gu Juexi did not say anything.
He did not care.
( Box novel.c om ) “Gu Enterprise has nothing to do with the Gu family, he can do whatever he wants,” Gu Juexi said mildly. “I will never go back to the Gu family. Six years ago, both of us cut ties with them.”
Wen Jie held her son’s hand as she glanced at the photograph on the table. “Juexi, it has been so many years. It would be good if you let go—”
“Mom, it’s late. You should go and rest,” Gu Juexi interrupted his mother before she could finish.
Wen Jie held back all the words she had not spoken. She hesitated then said, “As long as you are happy, I am happy. Mom will go and rest now.”
Wen Jie got up and left the room.
Her son had never known what love was but once he had experienced it, that person became his obsession. He had learned how to love, but he only knew how to love one person.
Unfortunately, that person was long gone.
After sending Wen Jie off, Gu Juexi closed the door and returned to his bed. He picked up the photograph again.
“Ye Yuwei, look what you’ve done. Didn’t you care about mom the most? Now, look how sad she is because of you. Can you really bear to watch her like this?” Gu Juexi said, sorrow brimming in his eyes.
Although it sounded like he was blaming Ye Yuwei, he seemed to be hoping for something.
He was hoping that she was still well and alive.
He was hoping that she would return to his side.
He was willing to do anything to get her back.
If she hated his indifference, he could learn how to communicate with others for her sake.
If she hated that he hurt her when he spoke, he could learn how to speak sweet nothings to her.
He was willing to do anything, as long as she came back to him.
“Ye Yuwei, who is the bastard now? You were the one who taught me what love was, and you were also the one who said until death do us part,” Gu Juexi murmured as he traced Ye Yuwei’s face in the photo.
The glass of the photo frame was cold and when his fingertips touched it, it felt like ice that was about to break. Just like his heart.
( Box novel.c om ) Gu Juexi placed the photo frame on the table, got up and went to the dark room.
This used to be the place where Ye Yuwei hid her love, but now it was a place for him to keep their memories. Though now he realized that the memories between them were so miserable.
Staying up all night had become normal for Gu Juexi in the past six years. He sat down on the carpet in front of the sofa and held a wine glass in his hand. He slowly watched the videos that Ye Yuwei had collected over the years. He felt as though he could see Ye Yuwei sitting at the corner of the sofa, silently watching the movie.
The movie was always on the whole night, with him staring at the edge of the sofa throughout. He felt like he could still see the woman who could explode at any moment, but yet had no ability to resist him.
He knew that he was ill. He had a very serious mental illness, but he did not want to get well.
He knew that if he got well, he would never be able to see Ye Yuwei again.
