I Help The Richest Man Spend Money to Prevent Disasters - Chapter 228
Edited By Adrian
Ye Zhi felt Gu Ren’s mood had suddenly changed, but she didn’t ask.
Gu Ren started up the car and drove into the dark night.
Gu Ren seemed to be a little angry. Although Ye Zhi couldn’t figure out the reason yet, she vaguely felt that something was amiss.
However, she couldn’t pinpoint it even after thinking about it for a while.
In the end, Ye Zhi decided not to give it much thought. She leaned against the window, pretending to look at the scenery. In fact, Yu Zhi was glancing at Gu Ren.
Gu Ren noticed that Ye Zhi was peeking at him. His expression remained unchanged, but he slowly tightened his grip on the steering wheel.
Ye Zhi started to speak, “That…”
Hearing that Ye Zhi wanted to say something, Gu Ren’s heart stirred. He didn’t look at her, but he still felt a little joy in his heart.
But when the words finally came to his lips, Gu Ren could only ask: “Now what?”
His voice was filled with indifference as if she was some stranger.
When Ye Zhi heard Gu Ren’s tone, her heart sank suddenly. Everything she wanted to say was blocked in her throat. Gu Ren still didn’t look at her. His face was cold and distinct.
Ye Zhi stared at Gu Ren blankly.
His voice was so indifferent and cold that Ye Zhi felt that her heart was going to freeze.
Ye Zhi suddenly felt as if this was the first time they had met.
Gu Ren was completely inaccessible and indifferent just like the moon beyond her reach.
As soon as this thought appeared in Ye Zhi’s mind, she felt so uncomfortable that it was like her heart was being crushed by something.
Ye Zhi instinctively didn’t like this train of thought. She felt like her heart was being overwhelmingly crushed just by thinking about it.
Ye Zhi was a little aggrieved. She didn’t want to look at Gu Ren anymore and withdrew her gaze. She turned her head to look out of the window as a faint tear formed in the corner of her right eye.
She pursed her lips and sniffed gently.
Ye Zhi didn’t know why she felt so uncomfortable and unhappy when Gu Ren ignored her. She was worried that if she thought about the reason too deeply, she would burst into tears.
As soon as Gu Ren finished speaking, he immediately regretted it.
Gu Ren frowned. He was a little upset with himself.
Why did I say that just now? I know, I clearly don’t feel this way at heart.
I’m normally always very calm. When did I become so irrational?
After a while, Gu Ren sighed inwardly. He turned his head to look at Ye Zhi, but he couldn’t see her face, because she was looking out through the window.
Gu Ren opened his mouth, wanting to say something, but in the end, he remained silent. His grip on the steering wheel tightened once again.
The cold war that started unexpectedly was still going on. Neither of them spoke again for the remainder of the drive.
When they arrived home, he got out of the car and glanced at Ye Zhi. She didn’t look back at him and stepped out with her head lowered.
Ye Zhi was about to walk into the house. However, at that moment, she saw a faint shadow on the ground, outlining a tall and slender figure.
Ye Zhi raised her eyes and met a pair of deep black eyes.
Gu Ren stood in front of Ye Zhi with his eyes looking at her in silence. His eyes were filled with deep emotions.
He was aware of it a long time ago.
All his calmness and self-control would instantly dissipate in front of Ye Zhi.
It all became… unbearable.
Ye Zhi didn’t move forward, nor did Gu Ren take a step back. The two of them stared at each other in silence with complex emotions.
