T/L: Fleeting Cloud E/D: Nyx & Lie
Ye Zhi suddenly felt as if she was in another world. Just like a nap in the afternoon, it was refreshing.
When they were nearing the villa, the driver reminded Ye Zhi, “Young madam, the villa of Gu family is ahead.”
Ye Zhi came to her senses and her eyes suddenly fell on a Mexican restaurant not far away.
Ye Zhi said, “You take the luggage back first. I will go home after eating lunch.”
Ye Zhi thought that Gu Ren should have had his lunch by this time so she simply decided to eat outside before going home.
Ye Zhi got off the golf cart and entered the Mexican restaurant. In fact, Ye Zhi had already eaten snacks in the plane and was not very hungry. She just wanted to look around.
At this time, there were not too many people in the restaurant. Ye Zhi chose to sit on the table next to a window and turned her head slightly to see the clean and quiet street outside.
Ye Zhi ordered a Carnitas and a raspberry salad with cream soup.
After her order was taken, Ye Zhi patiently sat and waited. There were not many people around and she was just a little celebrity. She took off her sunglasses and looked out the window with her chin up.
Of course, no one recognized Ye Zhi. She was on this island, far away from the distractions of the entertainment circle. She rarely had a moment of tranquility.
At the same time, Sheng Man’s adoptive mother Nie Jiqing also came to this island.
Previously, Nie Jiqing’s husband specially bought her a ticket to California in order to let her relax. Her husband was going to accompany her originally, but something came up so he could only cancel the trip with regret.
Nie Jiqing asked her husband to go to work and went to this quiet island alone, she didn’t even let her assistant tag along. She just wanted to be alone for a while.
Nie Jiqing knew that her husband always knew that she had never forgotten her biological daughter. Even though Sheng Man had always been with her, she still wanted to find her daughter.
Nie Jiqing didn’t want to believe that her child was no longer alive. Only by not giving up hope, she could convince herself that they would meet again someday.
Ye Zhi was oblivious to all of this. When Nie Jiqing walked into this street, her dishes had already been served.
Ye Zhi lowered her head and tasted every dish with a small bite. She was not hungry and could not eat so many dishes at all. She even thought if Gu Ren was here now, she could share it with him.
However, Ye Zhi did not dare to show up with Gu Ren blatantly during daylight. It was better to be cautious.
At the thought of Gu Ren, Ye Zhi couldn’t help but take out her mobile phone and send a message to Gu Ren.
Gu Family’s villa.
Gu Ren was sitting in the living room. His back was leaning on the sofa while his head was rested, slightly looking upwards. A shadow of his slender figure was projected on the sofa.
At this moment, Gu Ren’s beautiful eyes were closed, showing a trace of fatigue. Unlike Ye Zhi, Gu Ren had a busy schedule. Only these two days were considered free.
Gu Ren was all alone in the villa. It was so uncomfortably quiet that the driver immediately left after dropping off the luggage.
The next second, Gu Ren’s mobile phone vibrated a few times breaking the silence of this moment.
Gu Ren immediately opened his eyes and leaned over to reach the mobile phone on the table. When he slid the screen open and saw Ye Zhi’s message, his eyebrows furrowed.
—Mr. Gu, have you seen the present I bought for you?
