“Yes, it’s my fault.” Gu Zheng looked at her affectionately, then said hesitantly, “I’m going to F Nation tomorrow morning. I might be back in a week.”
Qiao Xi’s face sank. “Tomorrow morning? Is it an urgent matter?”
Under normal circumstances, if Gu Zheng wanted to go on a business trip, he would arrange it a few days in advance. However, he did not have the time to prepare this time. It was already evening, yet he suddenly said that he was going on a business trip early in the morning. It was really strange.
Gu Zheng did not answer her question directly and changed the topic. “Is there anything you want me to bring back?”
Qiao Xi thought about it seriously. There was a mountain of jewelry and makeup in her room, and her clothes filled the entire cloakroom. She shook her head. “No, I don’t lack anything.”
“Mrs. Gu, the project I’m going to discuss this time is a big order worth 800 million. I’m earning so much money for you to spend, but you don’t want anything?”
Seeing that Qiao Xi was frowning and thinking seriously, Gu Zheng smiled helplessly. “I won’t make things difficult for you anymore. Since I want to give you a gift, I’ll choose it myself. Coincidentally, F Nation is holding a large-scale auction. I’ve looked at the brochure and there’s a set of good jewelry that’ll be auctioned.”
Qiao Xi said in a low voice, “I can’t even wear all the jewelry in my room, yet you still want to give me jewelry. You buy me many gifts every time you go on a business trip. This makes me feel very pressured!”
Hearing Qiao Xi’s words, Gu Zheng could not help but laugh. His deep eyes were filled with affection as he stroked her cheek and said softly, “I want to give you many gifts. Even if you want the stars in the sky, I’ll think of a way to pluck them for you.”
Qiao Xi instantly blushed. She was too embarrassed and lowered her head. She wanted to rush upstairs to escape. “Um… It’s getting late. I’ll help you pack your luggage.”
As he watched Qiao Xi leave in a hurry, Gu Zheng’s laughter was clear and extremely pleasant.
The next morning.
Gu Zheng woke up early. Qiao Xi’s eyes were still closed when she heard him gently get up. His footsteps were slow as he was afraid of waking her up. She originally wanted to wait for Gu Zheng to pack his things and personally send him out, but she could not resist the strong sleepiness and fell asleep.
When Qiao Xi opened her eyes, it was already eight o’clock. She pouted angrily. She had promised to get up and send him off, but she still missed the timing. They would not see each other for many days.
She stuck her head out and saw a piece of paper on the bedside table. The handwriting on it was flamboyant: [Mrs. Gu, take care of yourself when I’m not around. Call me if you need anything.]
Qiao Xi smiled happily. This man looked cold, but he always doted on her in every way like she was a child.
Back then, when she married Gu Zheng, it was just an impulsive decision. However, she did not know when it started, but her heart was gradually occupied by him. She could not tolerate anyone else anymore. When she realized it, she had already fallen deeply in love with Gu Zheng and could not extricate herself.
Qiao Xi lowered her eyes and looked at the empty bed. She could not help but feel a little bitter. They had only been separated for a morning, yet she had already begun to miss Gu Zheng crazily. In the past, she did not feel much when Gu Zheng was by her side all day. Now, she finally knew how difficult it was to be apart from him.
She leaned against the bed and felt weak all over. Her heart was filled with sorrow when her phone suddenly rang. It was a call from Gu Zheng.
Qiao Xi instantly beamed with joy. Gu Zheng really understood her thoughts too well. He knew that she missed him, so he hurriedly called her as soon as he had time. She hurriedly picked up the phone and said in a delicate voice, “Ah Zheng, why are you calling me? Shouldn’t you be on the plane at this time? When I think about being separated from you for so long, I…”
“Mrs. Gu, use your little head to think carefully. Of course, I haven’t gotten on the plane yet because the plane is late.” Gu Zheng’s voice carried a trace of disdain.
The longing in Qiao Xi’s heart instantly vanished. This bastard didn’t even know how to say something nice when he called! If she had known earlier, she wouldn’t have picked up the call.
Seeing that she was silent, Gu Zheng’s tone softened. “Xi Xi, I have to go.”
His voice was low and magnetic, filled with endless love. “Baby, be good and wait for me to come back!”
The dissatisfaction in Qiao Xi’s heart instantly vanished. She smiled obsessively. Gu Zheng’s voice was really pleasant to listen to. It was too charming!
After hanging up, Qiao Xi’s eyes were filled with loneliness. She really could not control her longing! ‘Ah Zheng! Ah Zheng, how can I live without you?!’
