Without waiting for Ye Zhi to react, Gu Ren walked straight to Ye Zhi’s side. He bent down slightly and picked up the bag on the floor.
Then he stood up and was about to return to his room. Ye Zhi could vaguely smell his body scent after he left.
Gu Ren stopped at the stairway and looked at Ye Zhi, “Mrs. Gu, I think you should start preparing for the yacht trip tonight.”
Finally, Gu Ren carried the bag upstairs. Ye Zhi lowered her head and found that the bag with the shirt she had worn was missing.
Gu Ren had told her that this yacht trip was arranged by Qin Ting, Gu Ren’s mother, for them. As long as they got on the yacht, they could take off their masks and no one would recognise them.
Gu Ren could drive the yacht by himself and he was very familiar with navigation in the sea as they were the only one on board.
At dusk, the sea was more serene and the water was blue as if it had never been stained with dust. The oncoming sea breeze brought damp water vapor, Gu family’s private yacht was docked at the wharf.
Ye Zhi changed into a long skirt and put on a thin sweater.
Gu Ren was still wearing a dark shirt. The sea breeze suddenly blew up his shirt, showing his thin waistline.
There were very few people in this area. Ye Zhi and Gu Ren both took off their sunglasses and masks. Gu Ren started the yacht and drove forward slowly.
The sea breeze seemed to blow away all the troubling thoughts. Ye Zhi walked to Gu Ren’s side as the yacht continued to drive forward. Ye Zhi didn’t know where they were going.
“Where are we going?”
Gu Ren’s eyes were still in front. After Ye Zhi asked him, Gu Ren didn’t turn his head to look at her and answered lightly.
“My mother asked us to come here.”
Ye Zhi was originally looking at the boundless sea. However when she heard Gu Ren’s answer, she was stunned and subconsciously looked up to Gu Ren.
Gu Ren noticed Ye Zhi’s gaze. He turned his head and looked at Ye Zhi.
Ye Zhi didn’t know whether it was an illusion. She seemed to have seen delight flashing in Gu Ren’s eyes. As it was a little dark, she didn’t clearly see Gu Ren’s expression.
Gu Ren didn’t avoid Ye Zhi’s gaze and said the next sentence without hesitation.
“The place we are going to is Love Reef.”
The speed of the yacht began to slow down and finally stopped on the calm sea. It seemed that they arrived at Love Reef.
As the yacht stopped, it seemed that even the sea breeze had stopped. It was so quiet that even their sound of breathing could be heard.
Ye Zhi didn’t know why, but she was a little ill at ease and feeling nervous. She subconsciously wanted to put her hair behind her ears.
The next second, Ye Zhi felt that her wrist seemed empty so she immediately turned her head to look at it.
Ye Zhi’s wrists were already thin and the pressure these past few days was too great so she became even more thin. The bracelet slipped from her wrist and was thrown into the air. It almost fell into the sea.
This was the bracelet given by Gu Ren’s mother!
Ye Zhi panicked and immediately wanted to reach out but the bracelet was already out of her reach.
Just when Ye Zhi thought that nothing could be done, Gu Ren extended his hand out without hesitation even though the bracelet had already flown outside the railing.
The moment Gu Ren caught the bracelet, he fell into the sea because of inertia.
