His One Love - Chapter 55
~End of chapter 54
Lu Wanwan then received a text message from Shen Yi, [Where are you?]
[I’m out playing with Gu Sheng and the others].
The place Li Xing and all of them went to wasn’t a place where ordinary people could enter. It seemed like it was the first time they brought Gu Sheng here to play. Seeing her, the manager was very polite, he kept nodding his head and bowing his waist in greetings.
When she entered the private box, Lu Wanwan saw that there was a big cake in the middle of the low table, only then did she understand what was the occasion today.
It turned out to be Gu Sheng’s birthday.
It wasn’t very messy nor noisy inside the private box, there was only one bottle of wine and no one smoked.
Lu Wanwan felt that Gu Sheng really had a good fortune, when Li Xing and the others were with her, they would smoke however much they wanted to and never cared about her.
There was no ringing tone from her phone in her trouser pocket, it looked like Shen Yi wasn’t responding to her message.
The TV hanging on the wall was broadcasting a game of go. Gu Sheng pouted, her tone was soft as she said, “Ai, the last time I played against grandpa, the game setting was the same, and until now, I still haven’t been able to solve it.”
Among them, only Fu Chenghuai was interested in go, and after hearing this, he became somewhat enthusiastic and said, “I’ll go and play a game with grandpa Gu one of these days.”
Gu Sheng immediately laughed: “My grandfather will definitely be happy to see big brother Fu.”
She then turned her head and asked Lu Wanwan, “Sister Wanwan, do you know how to play go?”
The original body owner of course didn’t know how to play go, but Lu Wanwan actually did. Her father was even a renowned go teacher, thus from her childhood onward she had seen more games than she could count.
Li Xing felt that Gu Sheng was really too stupid, she actually asked Lu Wanwan if she knew how to play ?
How could a person who only had eyes for gold, silver and jewels know these kind of things ?
Besides, back when Lu Wanwan was in high school, her performances were so poor even her parents were ashamed of her, she was famous for being brainless.
“I do ah.”
“Not only do I know how to…” Lu Wanwan pointed to the game of go on the TV in front of them and added, “I can even solve this game.”
Li Xing thought she was bragging.
Fu Chenghuai coldly cast a glance at her, he didn’t say anything, but he was also thinking the same.
Gu Sheng laughed: “Sister Wanwan, so it turns out you’re quite skillful?”
She didn’t believe that Lu Wanwan, that idiot, could solve it, she was most likely bragging again.
Gu Sheng ordered someone to get a go board, set up the go game, waiting to see Lu Wanwan make a fool of herself.
Lu Wanwan got up, grasped a white piece in her hand, carefully examined the board for a while, before decisively landing the piece under the gazes of all.
Li Xing stared for a long time at the board before his pupils suddenly dilated. Lu Wanwan really did not talk nonsense, she actually solved this game of go.
Even Fu Chenghuai was astonished.
This game wasn’t easy to solve at all. Li Xing had mixed feelings, he never expected Lu Wanwan to have this kind of ability.
Lu Wanwan finally held her head high in front of them, looking at Gu Sheng’s face which was alternating between green and white, she felt elated in her heart, and now that she had relieved some of her anger, there was no need for her to stay any longer.
Before leaving, she also didn’t forget to rub some salt on the person’s wounds : “Miss Gu, I’m going home first, you see it started raining outside, my husband will worry about me if I don’t go back soon.”
Gu Sheng clenched her fists tightly but she kept the smile on her face unchanged: “I’ll have someone drive you home.”
“No need, I don’t lack the money to take a taxi.”
Heavy rain poured down, accompanied by a few thunderclaps.
Just when Lu Wanwan reached downstairs, she saw a familiar person standing under the eaves. Half of his body was soaked because of the rain, his soft black hair was also wet and water droplets dripped down the tips of his hair.
His complexion was ghastly white and bloodless.
Lu Wanwan frowned: “Shen Yi?”
The man turned around and his dark eyes fell on her face.
Lu Wanwan’s heart felt like it was being squeezed. She asked, “Why are you here? Did you come over to find me ?” After a short pause, she pursed her lips and asked with a puzzled look on her face, “Did you run over here under the rain without using the umbrella ?”
Shen Yi was holding an umbrella in his right hand, his pupils moved, then he opened the black umbrella and propped it above her head, his voice was hoarse: “Hmm.”
“Why didn’t you use the umbrella?” She couldn’t help but ask.
Shen Yi froze, and then answered her question honestly: “Because I’m not very happy.”
Her voice had not changed, it was the same as back then, gentle and soft.
Shen Yi expressionlessly listened to the sound of sobbing confessions coming from the other end, and listened to her slowly telling him how she had no choice back then.
In fact, there was no such thing as having no choice. She just chose someone else and gave up on him, there was nothing to explain, and there was nothing to regret even more so.
To this day, Shen Yi still remembers the day his mother left. That day, before leaving the house, she stood by the door, hugged him and kissed him on the forehead, carrying a brand new bag in her hand, her makeup done exquisitely, as she said with a smile, “Mom is going out.”
And then she never came back.
He remained in the living room of their rented room from dawn until dark, no movements came from the door all along.
