Chapter 26: Let Me Hold You For A While
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
In the back seat of the black Maybach, Gu Zhengs knuckles had turned white from holding his phone. The atmosphere in the car was tense.
The chauffeur, Old Wang, could not help but shoot Song Shiyu a look. “You should try to persuade Young Master. If this goes on and we cant find Madam, well freeze to death out here.”
Song Shiyu had just ended a call. He took off his earphones and turned back to report to Gu Zheng. “President, our people have checked all the car accidents that took place in the city in the past hour but there are no traces of Madam.”
It was not easy to drive a modified car. An accident could happen if one were not careful, so Song Shiyu had immediately gotten someone to check the newest reports of car accidents in the city.
“Theres also news from the Transportation Bureau. However, as theyre still monitoring the surveillance footage, Madams whereabouts are still being confirmed.”
“Give me the laptop.”
Gu Zheng could not wait any longer.
He removed his tie impatiently, and his well-defined fingers moved quickly on the keyboard. Soon, the laptop screen was filled with surveillance footage of all the intersections in Li City.
Gu Zheng gritted his teeth when he thought of the message from Black Tide asking him what it meant to like someone.
What did it mean
This was exactly it!
When he thought about how Qiao Xi might be in danger, how he would not be able to hear that crazy woman boldly asking for a kiss again, and how he would not be able to find another woman called Qiao Xi in this world, he became so anxious to the point of going mad.
He did not care about her lies or her using him!
After dealing with a few more jobs that had been accumulated, Qiao Xi packed her things and prepared to go home.
The old stairs echoed as she walked down. She carried her bag and wondered if Gu Zhengs anger had subsided.
At that moment, footsteps came from downstairs. They sounded urgent.
Qiao Xi moved aside, and the next second, a tall figure rushed up to her and pulled her into his arms.
“Damn it, who told you to simply drive around!”
Gu Zheng panted heavily, but he did not let go of Qiao Xi at all.
Such a close distance caused Qiao Xis heart to tremble. She subconsciously took a step back, wanting to see Gu Zhengs expression clearly, but when she moved just a little, Gu Zheng closed the gap between them once more. The large hand that was wrapped around her waist was hot and strong, even trembling slightly.
“Gu… Gu Zheng…”
“Let me hug you for a while.”
Gu Zhengs voice was hoarse as he bent his back and buried his head deeply into Qiao Xis shoulder.
Song Shiyu stood on the lower floor and signaled to the driver, Old Wang. The two of them left the corridor silently.
Was it ten or twenty minutes that passed
Qiao Xi could not remember clearly. She only remembered that when Gu Zheng let go of her, her legs were numb.
“What happened to you”
Qiao Xi massaged her numb leg while asking in confusion.
Gu Zheng looked a little disheveled at this moment. His tie was gone and the top three buttons of his shirt were unbuttoned, making his shirt hang crookedly on his body while revealing half of his collarbone.
His hair was messy and covered his deep, dark eyes. He looked extremely helpless but attractive at the same time.
Qiao Xis gaze lingered on Gu Zhengs collarbone for a long time.
Her gaze seemed to have caused a fire to spread within him, spreading from his collarbone to his entire body.
Gu Zheng coughed uncomfortably and adjusted his shirt. He only felt a little more at ease when the buttons below his Adams apple were all buttoned up.
Qiao Xi looked away with some regret. “Why are you here”
This was an old town, and the people living here were all old people.
Gu Zheng did not answer. How should he answer Should he say that he was worried about her That he did not hesitate to hack into the Traffic Bureaus system in order to find Qiao Xis location
Even though he admitted in his heart that he liked Qiao Xi, it was impossible for Gu Zheng to take the initiative to say it out!
This woman had no heart!
Snorting coldly at Qiao Xi, Gu Zheng turned around and went downstairs in an incomparably cold manner.
Qiao Xi, “”
Downstairs, Song Shiyu and the driver were smoking in the corner. They would glance at the shabby corridor from time to time.
“Old Wang, dont you think the president has fallen in love The President Gu who has always been cold to women has finally fallen for a woman.”

The chauffeur, Old Wang, shook his head. “Young Master and Madam have only known each other for a short period of time. Furthermore, their way of getting to know each other was… No, no.”
Song Shiyu pushed his glasses up the bridge of his nose and said meaningfully, “You speak too soon.”
It did not matter how they got to know each other, nor did it matter how long they had known each other. What was important was that he had been by Gu Zhengs side for so many years and this was the first time he saw him getting flustered over a woman.
Song Shiyu thought about Gu Zhengs expression when he found out that Qiao Xi had driven his modified car out.. He thought that President Gu was doomed this time.
