I ADORE HIM - Season 5 Episode 12
Zhou Jing was chattering about something, but she was suddenly frozen in place.
She moved her mouth, but before she could talk, Qin Zhi’ai had already put the money in her hand. Then Qin Zhi’ai pulled on her suitcase, turned around, and left the room.
If the money belonged to her, she would take it.
She wouldn’t take a single penny that didn’t belong to her.
At first, she had accepted Liang Doukou’s proposal partly because of her father’s gambling debt and partly because she had wanted to get closer to Gu Yusheng.
Regardless of the fact that she had fallen in love with Gu Yusheng eight years earlier or that she had slept with Gu Yusheng eight years later, she had done all of those things of her own will and for her own happiness.
She didn’t need any sympathy or compensation, and she certainly didn’t need Zhou Jing’s contemptuous words and offensive attacks. She knew clearly that Liang Doukou was Gu Yusheng’s wife. Thus, when they asked her to exchange identities, despite her reluctance, she did it without any doubt or hesitation.
She had her own principles, as well as moral integrity.
She would definitely not allow her dignity to be trampled on by them in spite of the fact that she was poor and needy.
When Qin Zhi’ai left, she straightened her back, looking neither humble nor arrogant.
After Qin Zhi’ai had left the Ladies’ Club, she stood by the roadside and stopped a taxi. When the driver asked her where she was going, Qin Zhi’ai just sat in the back seat without saying anything.
Before hearing the conversation between Liang Doukou and Zhou Jing, she had intended to go to the airport to return to A city and see him secretly after she was no longer Liang Doukou’s substitute.
When she had left, Gu Yusheng had been still in a coma and hadn’t been entirely out of danger, so she was eager to know if he had woken up and was all right.
But now, she thought there was no need to do so.
Lu Bancheng was accompanying him, so what could happen to him? Maybe he had woken up, or maybe he hadn’t, but a better medical team was probably with him now.
When she had been “Liang Doukou,” coming from a family with an equal status to his, he even hadn’t fallen in love with her, let alone when she was Qin Zhi’ai from a totally different world. She couldn’t even approach him, and even if she could, it would still mean nothing…
“Miss, where are you going?” The driver hadn’t received any answer, so he asked her again.
Qin Zhi’ai came back to herself and thought for a moment, eventually saying, “Northwest University.”
The night that her brother had given her a birthday present, she had promised him that she would go back to school to make up the unfinished courses after she quit being Liang Doukou’s substitute.
Now, she had finally become herself, and all her father’s debt had been repaid. The nightmare-like life and her love had drawn to an end, so she needed to make plans for her future.
She thought carefully. The new life that was about to begin was much better than those days when she had been a substitute.
However, Qin Zhi’ai had no sense of happiness, and she somehow felt empty at the bottom of her heart, as if a large piece had gone missing.
It was a little far from the Ladies’ Club to Northwest University. Through the car window, Qin Zhi’ai was staring at the city bathed in the sunset. Staring at it, her eyes gradually tingled with pain.
In the end, she still felt a little sad.
After all, she had loved him for eight years.
This was the end now.
Although she wasn’t feeling great pain or grief, she still felt like her life was over.
Gu Yusheng woke up at 4:45 pm.
He hadn’t had a good sleep since he had seen the video. Due to the medicine he had been given, he’d had a long and deep sleep this time. However, when he woke up, his brain was a little bit blank.
