The situation in the room felt so tensed that it was difficult to breathe.
Ye Yuwei continued sitting on her bed, looking down at her pale, white fingers.
"Probably because I am not as great as I thought I am." Ye Yuwei whispered, not knowing if she was saying this to Lu Qichuan or herself.
"Sister-in-law, regarding Yu Sha'er, I feel that…"
"Yu Sha'er is not the problem." Ye Yuwei looked up at Lu Qichuan, unsure of how to explain it to him. "The problem does not lie with Yu Sha'er. Even if there is no Yu Sha'er, there will be someone else." Ye Yuwei smirked. She could see it clearly now.
Lu Qichuan was taken aback and could not say a word. Perhaps he should change the conversation topic.
"Then again, don't you remember me?" Lu Qichuan said, with a tone that carried all his grievances.
Ye Yuwei paused for a moment and stared at Lu Qichuan curiously.
However, she could not remember a person named Lu Qichuan within her memory.
Therefore, she only shook her head.
Lu Qichuan laughed, slightly defeated and said, "Sure enough, wherever he is, we can only be in the second place."
Ye Yuwei did not know what to say.
"Do you remember that I once told you that you are similar to someone that I know?"
Ye Yuwei remembered. He said it at the hospital.
So it was not just an ice breaking conversation?
Looking at Ye Yuwei's confused face, Lu Qichuan said, "Thirteen years ago, that fire."
Lu Qichuan's voice fell and Ye Yuwei looked at him incredulously.
It was him?
It was him!
She had always thought that the person who saved her together with Gu Juexi was Song Helian. After all, the one who was in the army right now was Song Helian.
She did not expect that person to be him!
"You? You are the Army Uncle?" Ye Yuwei said with a trembling voice.
Lu Qichuan let out a laugh after hearing the word 'uncle'. He started counting backwards, that year Ye Yuwei was ten years old, they were eighteen, so it seemed reasonable that she would call them uncle.
Ye Yuwei had only heard Gu Juexi's name when it happened. Moreover, Gu Juexi was the one who had carried her out to safety. Therefore, she had placed all of her adoration on Gu Juexi.
She had tried to look for the other Army Uncle. She thought that it was Song Helian and had secretly sought to look for him once. However, she was intimidated by him and never went back to look for him again.
Ye Yuwei looked at Lu Qichuan, her eyes sparkling with excitement.
Lu Qichuan saw her reaction and was finally satisfied for the moment.
It was still those pair of eyes. Still this girl.
"I am sorry! I had recognized the wrong person. I thought it was…" Ye Yuwei said excitedly. She had thought that, that man was Song Helian and so she had forgotten the fact that Lu Qichuan was also in the army with Gu Juexi.
Before she could finish her sentence, she was pulled away by a pair of strong arms and she fell to on to the bed.
This happened so suddenly that Ye Yuwei could not comprehend what had happened. However, when she looked up, she saw a man's back facing her and he was angry.
Why did he come back?
And why was he angry again? She had not provoked him this time.
