Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 642
Chapter 642: The Devil In His Body Awakens
An hour later, Qiao Xi went upstairs. Gu Zheng was working in the study. His eyes were calm. Seeing her enter, he asked casually, “Has Gu Yao left?”
Qiao Xi frowned and did not answer immediately.
Gu Zheng did not raise his head and said softly, “It’s getting late. Go back to your room and rest.”
Qiao Xi hesitated for a moment, and her eyes were filled with worry. “Aren’t you going to rest?”
“There’s still some work that hasn’t been settled. Gu Corporation is holding an important meeting. If you have time, come with me.”
Qiao Xi was puzzled. Gu Zheng had never allowed her to come into contact with his work matters. Why did he suddenly ask her to go to the company for a meeting this time?
Even though she had doubts in her heart, Qiao Xi still nodded without the slightest hesitation.
Qiao Xi walked out of the study and suddenly stopped when she reached the door. She turned around to look at Gu Zheng and saw that his eyes were indifferent as he looked seriously at the document in his hands. He looked very normal. Perhaps he was just feeling unwell earlier.
After Qiao Xi left, Gu Zheng suddenly raised his head. His eyes surged with a layer of coldness that gradually turned gray. He had always been trying his best to control his emotions in front of Qiao Xi, and the impulse that came from the bottom of his heart caused him to be slightly exhausted.
Back when he was in Maple Garden, he had gotten poisoned. He was also drugged with something that could make one go crazy. It caused him to lose his emotions and rationality from time to time, turning him into a bloodthirsty demon. The funny thing was that even with his astonishing willpower, he could not control it.
He used to be a little boy who often smiled. However, after being tortured in the darkness and facing countless abuse, he gradually lost his feelings and warmth. He ended up like this.
Gu Zheng had long known that a demon was in his body, and it would escape when he let his guard down. It would occupy his body and possess his soul. It had no emotions, just a thirst to kill.
In the past, Gu Zheng thought that there was nothing wrong with this. At the very least, no one would dare to bully him anymore. He was irritable and cold, but it was not a weakness. Instead, it was his protection.
He disdained emotions because he was an indifferent person. However, everything changed after Qiao Xi appeared.
The last time his illness acted up was many years ago. It had been so long that he had forgotten about the demon in his body. He was very afraid that the demon would hurt Qiao Xi.
He originally thought that the demon would disappear with the passage of time. That way, no one would ever know the darkness hidden in the depths of his heart. He thought that he had hidden it very well and would not let the demon born in Maple Garden occupy his body anymore. Unfortunately, he failed.
Gu Zheng clenched his fists. He would rather die than allow himself to hurt Qiao Xi. She was the woman he loved the most. She was his life.
The man slowly got up and walked to the bedroom door. He gently pushed it open. Seeing that she was sleeping soundly, he revealed a gentle smile.
He walked softly to the bed and bent down to plant a kiss on her forehead. It was a light kiss, but it was filled with strong emotions. He said, “I love you.”
Late at night, the sleeping Gu Zheng suddenly opened his eyes. His gray eyes were sharp and cold like a wolf in the dark. He glanced at the woman beside him and narrowed his eyes.
He was sleeping on the same bed as a woman?
The memories in Gu Zheng’s mind were still there, but the emotions in his heart had already vanished. He even sneered. He actually got married and had a wife.
At this moment, Gu Zheng felt that he must have lost his mind. He was actually willing to marry and was completely obedient to this woman. He was even willing to sacrifice his life for her.
There was no emotion in his eyes. They were filled with disgust. He could not even accept sleeping on the same bed as this woman. Hence, he lifted the blanket and slowly got up.
It was just that he did not expect his actions to be too aggressive, which woke Qiao Xi up. The impatience in Gu Zheng’s eyes grew even more intense. He felt that women were really too troublesome.
Unexpectedly, Qiao Xi narrowed her eyes and roared furiously. “I finally fell asleep. Why are you moving around?! I’m not sleeping with you anymore! How annoying!”
Gu Zheng: “…”
He suddenly recalled the terrified faces of Gu Weiming and Huang Lilan after he controlled this body the last time.
“Ah! Your… Your eyes have turned green! You’re not Gu Zheng! People from the Gu family don’t have green eyes. Get out of the Gu family!”
“You’re a demon! Just like your dead mother, you’ll kill us sooner or later!”
