The elevator recognized her personal work card and immediately began to rise without stopping, reaching the top floor directly.
The dedicated receptionist on the top floor was already very familiar with Gu Nian. He stood up and met her. Then the other person immediately gestured in a certain direction on the floor: “Mr. Luo is over there.”
Gu Nian nodded towards the other party and walked over quickly.
Over there was the exclusive rest area of this floor. There was a glass wall on the outside, and the curtains inside were open, so you could see clearly what was going on in the room.
When Gu Nian arrived, she saw Luo Xiu standing in front of the floor-to-ceiling window between the inside and outside, talking to someone on his cell phone.
Gu Nian stood outside the door and hesitated for a few seconds before gently knocking on the door.
Inside the glass wall, Luo Xiu turned around and met Gu Nian’s eyes. He didn’t seem surprised. He walked over with a gentle smile and took the initiative to open the door for Gu Nian.
Gu Nian walked over with a soft sound, and just heard Luo Xiu respond to the person opposite meekly: “Don’t worry, I will definitely do it.”
Gu Nian slowed down her steps hesitantly.
In her impression, there seemed to be only one person who could make Luo Xiu speak in such a gentle and humble tone——
Luo Xiu put his arms around Gu Nian, but his voice on the phone remained calm, gentle and low: “Okay, I remember. Goodbye, aunt.”
Gu Nian: “…”
Sure enough, it was Ms. Gu Yuan.
Luo Xiu hung up the phone and threw it on the sofa a meter or two away.
When the man turned around with his eyebrows lowered, Gu Nian suddenly realized that he was tired from the meeting so he had come to the break room, and in between Luo Xiu’s glasses had disappeared.
Not wearing glasses = seal lifted.
After doing this conversion, Gu Nian immediately forgot the purpose of coming here, turned around and wanted to sneak out first. Unfortunately, the escape failed, and she was intercepted by the evil dragon in the middle of a step and was forced back against the glass wall.
“Where are you going?” The man lowered his head, pressed her affectionately against the glass wall, and nuzzled her neck.
Gu Nian slowly made a swallowing motion and said cautiously: “I suddenly remembered that there is a detail in my script of “Warrior Princess” that I haven’t yet…”
“It’s time to get off work.”
“It’s already time to get off work.” Luo Xiu patiently repeated in a low and melodious voice.
Gu Nian became even more uneasy: “So, so?”
“After getting off work, it’s private time.” Luo Xiu leaned over and smiled when he heard Gu Nian’s slowly accelerating heartbeat, “I’ve been waiting for so long, I can’t have waited in vain.”
Gu Nian: “……”
This was probably the legendary waiting for the rabbit to throw itself into a trap t^t
However, these last few sentences of conversation also brought Gu Nian’s purpose of coming here back to her mind.
Gu Nian calmed down a little and tried to escape this “catastrophe”: “I came to you because I have something serious to discuss.”
“Yes.” Unfortunately, the evil dragon remained unmoved and stubbornly nuzzled her neck, “I’m listening.”
Gu Nian was about to cry but had no tears, so she could only bite the bullet and speak: “After our meeting in the studio this evening, the more I thought about it, the more I feel something is wrong.”
“Obviously, I received news a few days ago that someone was talking about your scandal. The public relations department should at least not have heard any rumors at all.”
“If they heard it, there’s no way the person in charge wouldn’t tell you.”
After hearing two consecutive sentences without any response, Gu Nian frowned slightly. Just as she was about to ask the question in her mind, Luo Xiu, who was leaning in front of her, raised his head.
Those brown eyes were close at hand, gentle but deep: “Yes. You are right.”
Gu Nian choked: “What… right?”
Luo Xiu: “You want to ask me if I heard the news a long time ago and just pretended not to know, right?”
Gu Nian slowly pressed herself against the glass wall: “You, really?”
Luo Xiu was too candid, which made Gu Nian, who should have been confident, a little helpless.
Just when she was looking into those brown eyes not knowing what to say, she saw the man lowering his eyes in front of her and suddenly smile: “I know that you may be angry by this, but I still couldn’t help but do it. Sorry, Nian Nian.”
Gu Nian asked hesitantly: “Are you doing this to make your relationship public with me? Exposing rumors of support in advance will indeed lower my acceptance bottom line. Then exposing our relationship will be nothing…”
“This is just one side.”
Gu Nian was slightly stunned: “Is there another side?”
Luo Xiu’s eyes turned away and fell to his side.
Gu Nian looked over and saw the mobile phone that Luo Xiu had thrown on the sofa. Recalling the phone call between Luo Xiu and Ms. Gu Yuan before she came in, Gu Nian checked, but couldn’t guess the specific reason.
Luo Xiu didn’t wear her down. When he looked back, he confessed: “Aunt knew what happened before and after the news. She also saw the part where the cohabitation was exposed.”
Gu Nian: “So?”
Luo Xiu lowered his eyes: “I have promised her that within a week, the Luo family will formally initiate our engagement.”
Gu Nian: “——?”
There was silence in the lounge for dozens of seconds.
Gu Nian finally found her voice. She nodded slowly and said lazily, “Ah, so this was your fundamental purpose.”
Luo Xiu bent down and slowly tightened his arms around the person in his arms. He leaned on her shoulder, but his forehead was lowered against the cold glass wall behind her.
His voice was low and hoarse, and he laughed self-deprecatingly: “Am I very terrible, Nian Nian?”
“Yes, it’s scary.”
“It’s like what Qi Han and the others said, like a dragon.”
The evil dragon’s eyelashes hanging on the lids under his eyelids trembled slightly, and he asked with a dumb smile: “Then will you be scared away?”
“Are you afraid I’ll run away?”
After a long silence, he buried his head completely in the crook of her neck. Then a low sound came from inside, as if someone injured and trembling.
But he said it with a smile.
Gu Nian’s eyes narrowed slightly.
She couldn’t hold it back any longer and raised her arms to hug Luo Xiu’s lean waist tightly, as if she wanted to give him her whole body’s warmth: “Then I won’t run.”
Luo Xiu paused, as if he was not sure whether what he heard was real or an auditory hallucination.
Gu Nian hugged him and repeated softly: “I won’t run. I know you’ve been used to this, I know you don’t feel safe, I know you used the trick of suffering to test me, and you also want to touch how deep the bottom line carved for you in my heart is.”
Luo Xiu’s knuckles trembled slightly behind the girl.
Gu Nian smiled in his ear and said with a soft and sweet voice: “Then give it a try, Mr. Evil Dragon. I will give you a lifetime of love to fill all the security that this world owes you.”
“…for a lifetime?”
“Well, for a lifetime.”
The embrace became tighter, as if they were becoming one.
His voice was suppressed and trembling in her ear: “Evil dragons are the greediest… Don’t regret it later, Nian Nian.”
“No regrets,” Gu Nian laughed softly, “Never.”
He finally stood up and kissed her.
In the last second, she caught a glimpse of the reddish corners of his eyes that could not be hidden, and the deep-rooted affection that disappeared in the deep kiss.
