Qin Yu frowned. He had already asked the housekeeper to tidy up the guest room ahead of time. Moreover, he had spent many days picking and choosing before feeling satisfied with the decorations. He had thought that he would be able to have her stay if she came over, but it seemed that he had thought too much.
Qin Yu silently pondered for a moment. In the end, he just said, “I’ll send you back.”
Despite it being the early hours of the morning, he still picked up his car keys and drove Ruan Tian, who was very determined to leave, back home.
However, Qin Yu wasn’t worried.
He had a lot of patience. He could get closer to Ruan Tian slowly.
But at the same time, he also felt a bit exhausted.
Whether back in high school or now, Qin Yu found that he never had any good ways to handle this girl.
It took nearly 40 minutes to drive from the Qin family’s old family estate to the residential area where Ruan Tian lived.
By the time they arrived, it was nearly one o’clock in the morning.
Despite the late hour, Ruan Tian was still very energetic and didn’t seem sleepy at all.
The car slowly rolled to a stop and Ruan Tian grabbed the handle to open the door, but she discovered that the door was locked.
Qin Yu said in a hoarse voice, “Wait a minute.”
He slowly rolled down his window, then took a cigarette out of his cigarette case and put it in his mouth. He held up his lighter and flicked the flames on but, who knew what he suddenly thought about, for some reason he stopped and flicked the lighter off again.
Qin Yu just stared out the window with a slightly distant look in his eyes, occasionally popping out a question or two like: “Which university are you planning to attend?”
In truth, Ruan Tian hadn’t decided yet.
Qin Yu felt a little depressed and the corners of his lips gently tugged downward. He muttered, “Do you hate me so much? You’re not even willing to speak with me?”
Qin Yu felt helpless. He knew his behavior had been bad, but he did not feel that he had committed an unforgivable crime or that he had created an irreconcilable hatred.
Of course, there was no way for him to erase the harm he had done to her when they were young, but he really had never had the intention to harm her.
He had merely loved her, but in the stupidest way. The worst way.
Qin Yu regretted.
And now, he wanted to make amends.
But he still didn’t know where to start, so he could only stalk and haunt her like this.
Ruan Tian said in a polite tone: “It’s not like that.”
After a pause, she asked earnestly, “How long before you unlock the door?”
She was now feeling a bit tired and wanted to go upstairs and sleep.
Although she had dropped such an obvious hint, Qin Yu still didn’t seem to have any intentions to let her out of the car any time soon.
Inside the car, the light was very dim. Even the light cast by the streetlights seemed faint and distant from inside.
Qin Yu’s facial features were almost hidden by the darkness, so Ruan Tian couldn’t really tell what kind of expression he was wearing on his face.
Qin Yu was silent for a long time. He seemed to be hesitating about something. Finally, he reached into his pocket and took out a lady’s wristwatch that he had long prepared. However, he swallowed back all the words he had been about to say.
Instead, Qin Yu simply reached out and directly grabbed Ruan Tian’s arm. He lowered his eyes and swiftly put the watch on her wrist himself.
He had been on the lookout for a gift for a long time. He had noticed this watch while randomly attending an auction some time ago, and snapped it up without blinking an eye.
At that time, he had only felt that this watch was very suitable for Ruan Tian.
He decided he could give it to her over the New Year.
“Here, it’s a New Year’s gift.”
Ruan Tian looked down when Qin Yu grabbed her arm to put on the watch. As his fingers touched her skin, she felt a strange tingle like electricity run through her entire body.
She looked at the watch itself and saw that it was encrusted by many small, finely cut diamonds. She could tell at a glance that it was a very expensive watch.
At the same time, she felt it looked very good on her wrist.
However, Ruan Tian still said, “There’s no need for you to be so polite.”
After all, the relationship between her and Qin Yu wasn’t to the extent that they needed to exchange New Year’s gifts, right?
She definitely hadn’t prepared any gifts, causing her to feel a bit of trepidation.
As Ruan Tian spoke, she also unclasped the watch from her wrist and tried to give it back to him.
Qin Yu calmly pushed the watch back and said faintly, “If you don’t want it, just throw it in the trash can.”
Ruan Tian sneered internally. This Qin Yu didn’t seemed to know who he was threatening! Did he really think she wouldn’t dare to throw some broken diamonds in the trash? !
Qin Yu added: “After all, it’s nothing too expensive. Only around 3 million. If you don’t like it, just toss it away.”
Ruan Tian suddenly felt that she really couldn’t bear to throw so much money away. This realization made her feel very upset!
