Gu Ren turned his head and looked at the direction of Ye Zhi’s voice but he still could not see.
Gu Ren replied with a sigh, “Sorry, I still can’t see.”
Ye Zhi looked at Gu Ren. From the first time they met, Gu Ren gave her the impression that he was perfect. He seemed to have everything that others could not imagine.
She had never seen him so powerless. So a perfect person like him also had his weakness.
Ye Zhi calmed down and said, “It’s fine.”
Her voice is very light and soft, “I’ll take you back to your room. There are fragments under your feet. If I hold you, you won’t be hurt.”
Gu Ren remained silent for a few seconds and then looked at Ye Zhi. Although he couldn’t see her face, he knew that Ye Zhi was standing there in the dark.
Ye Zhi deliberately said, “Mr. Gu, have you forgotten that we are partners?”
‘So don’t worry about showing weakness in front of me. I will help you just like you helped me.’
Gu Ren heard the voice of Ye Zhi coming from the darkness. It was clear as if it could break the deep darkness. The darkness surrounding him seemed to fade away instantly.
Gu Ren said, “So I will trouble you, Mrs. Gu.”
Ye Zhi smiled. She reached out her hand and gently took Gu Ren’s hand in her hand. In the dark, two hands held each other.
In the darkness, Gu Ren and Ye Zhi’s hands were holding each other. Warm and cold, two opposite temperatures intertwined at this moment.
Ye Zhi didn’t fully hold Gu Ren’s hand. She just put her hand gently on Gu Ren’s palm.
Ye Zhi took a look at the debris on the ground. She carefully avoided it, ” Follow me, there are debris here. Don’t get hurt.”
Gu Ren didn’t hear clearly what Ye Zhi was talking about. He couldn’t see Ye Zhi’s face but he could smell the fragrance of her body.
The cold touch of her palm was also magnified several times. It covered his palm strongly and clearly.
Touch, hearing and even all other subtle things that were usually undetectable could be clearly felt in the darkness.
Gu Ren couldn’t help but bend his fingers unconsciously. His long fingers accidentally brushed the palm of Ye Zhi’s hand.
Ye Zhi’s body trembled and her breath became a little sluggish. Ye Zhi’s foot stumbled and she could not walk steadily. In the end, she fell forward accidentally.
Gu Ren noticed Ye Zhi’s movements. He reached out to catch Ye Zhi and their hands were completely held together.
Gu Ren smiled and said in a voice concealing slight pleasure. His voice clearly sounded in Ye Zhi’s ear, “Be careful.”
Ye Zhi’s heartbeat was thrown into disorder when she felt Gu Ren’s light breath hit her ear. She felt her face becoming incredibly hot and the temperature kept climbing.
Ye Zhi stood still and separated from Gu Ren. Ye Zhi did not dare to wander this time. She led Gu Ren and walked slowly.
The hallway was silent. Only the gentle breathing of two people sounded.
Ye Zhi’s mood calmed down and she felt a little embarrassed. Ye Zhi thought about it and said, “I…”
Gu Ren listened.
Ye Zhi’s tone was very serious: “I will not tell others about your night blindness.”
Gu Ren kept silent for a few seconds and said softly, “I know.”
While Ye Zhi was stunned, Gu Ren’s voice continued to ring. The voice was still clear and light but with a trace of certainty, “You are not that kind of person.”
If Ye Zhi intended to take advantage of his night blindness, she would not have been so determined to break the contract and resolutely get rid of the control of the company.
She would not insist on writing down an IOU after borrowing money.
