Ye Zhi agreed with him and asked the first question that came to her mind, “Do you think I need to find a training instructor?”
Hearing these words, Gu Ren raised his eyebrows and said in a low voice while laughing, “A training instructor?”
Gu Ren suddenly stood up. He walked slowly towards Ye Zhi and stopped right in front of her bed.
Ye Zhi raised her head and looked at Gu Ren. Gu Ren furrowed his eyebrows and spoke nonchalantly, “Do you think there’s a need to find one?”
In the next moment, Gu Ren raised his hand and slowly pointed his slender fingers at himself. He said in a slightly excited voice, “Ye Zhi, I will be your training instructor.”
Ye Zhi was slightly startled, “You?”
Gu Ren raised his eyebrows, “What’s the problem? Can’t I be one?”
Ye Zhi took a glimpse at the smooth and perfect lines on Gu Ren’s arm. She looked at him in silence before she replied in resignation, “Yes, you can.”
Gu Ren gave her a light smile, “Miss Ye, you must know that I can be very strict.”
Ye Zhi straightened her back, not willing to go down without putting up a fight, “I’m not the lazy type either.”
After Gu Ren finished speaking, he turned and walked out. When he was about to reach the door, he abruptly stopped. He turned back around and shifted his eyes to Ye Zhi.
Gu Ren said, “Tomorrow at seven o’clock, I will come to wake you up.” After that, Gu Ren left.
Since Ye Zhi decided to start training, she adjusted her alarm clock and went to bed early that night.
The next morning, the crisp ringing sound of the alarm clock broke the morning’s silence. Ye Zhi woke up as soon as the alarm clock rang.
Ye Zhi looked at the time, and noticed she still had a bit of time before Gu Ren came. So she got out of bed to wash up, feeling wide awake after a bit.
After that, Ye Zhi took note of the time again and saw it was almost time. She changed into some sportswear, tied her hair into a ponytail, then opened her bedroom door.
As soon as Ye Zhi opened her door, she was stunned. Gu Ren was casually leaning against the door frame.
Hearing a commotion, Gu Ren looked over.
Gu Ren did not expect Ye Zhi to get up by herself. He slowly stood up straight, lowered his head and looked at Ye Zhi sporting a neat attire.
The corners of Gu Ren’s lips raised slightly, “Morning.”
Ye Zhi: “Morning.”
Gu Ren glanced down at the watch on his wrist. The time indicated on the watch was exactly 7.00 am.
Gu Ren looked at Ye Zhi. He raised his hand and lightly tapped the dial of his watch with his cold white fingers. With a smile on his face, he said, “You are right on time.”
Ye Zhi smiled, “Of course.”
Gu Ren and Ye Zhi ate some light breakfast. After a while, Gu Ren stood up and said, “Follow me.”
Ye Zhi slowly followed behind Gu Ren as the two walked to the gym together.
In the following period of time, Ye Zhi understood what Gu Ren meant by being strict. Compared to his usual character, Gu Ren now was indeed uncharacteristically strict.
She was physically weak, so Gu Ren urged her to start practicing at the most basic level. However, she was required to be very exact in every movement she made so that she could achieve the best results.
Ye Zhi had not exercised in a long time. So every time she moved, her body felt sore. Ye Zhi felt very tired, but when she thought of Gu Ren, who was coaching her, she regained the motivation to get back up again and continue.
He was being considerate of her so she strived to work hard together with him.
During her training, sometimes Ye Zhi would catch moments when Gu Ren would look at her with a perplexed expression.
But when she looked at him again, the traces of his confusion would vanish, as if he did not want to be easily caught by her. Ye Zhi almost thought she was just hallucinating.
After a month of training, Ye Zhi could complete the exercises with more ease. She was a fair bit stronger and fitter than before she had started.
On the last day, Gu Ren wanted to check the results of Ye Zhi’s training for the past month.
