‘Big brother Du, come back home,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘I’ll come home after I find a woman to replace you,’ Na Liu Ting Du said.
Na Liu Ting Du was lying to himself instead of Yuan Gun Gun.
‘Big brother Du…’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Hao Yan Che appeared out of nowhere behind Yuan Gun Gun. He snatched her phone and smashed it.
‘Che, what are you doing?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
Yuan Gun Gun picked up the broken phone. Hao Yan Che destroyed the phone Na Liu Ting Du gave her. She lost her big brother like she lost the phone.
Hao Yan Che gripped Yuan Gun Gun’s wrist and she dropped the broken phone.
‘Ah… what are you doing?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked. ‘I was talking to big brother Du. Why did you break the phone big brother Du gave me as a birthday gift?’
‘Do you know you’re about to marry me?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
‘Of course I know,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘Why are you calling another man before you’re about to marry me?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
Yuan Gun Gun didn’t care Hao Yan Che was hurting her wrist. Her heart hurt a lot more.
‘Why did it have to be like this?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
Hao Yan Che let go of Yuan Gun Gun’s wrist.
‘I only have one big brother… he’s the person who loved me since I was a little girl,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘Why did it turn out like this? My big brother doesn’t need me anymore. My big brother never cries. That night he cried. I believe he truly didn’t want to hurt me. He was in pain. He knew I didn’t choose him. I chose you. After that night, he left. I’ve hurt the person who loved me the most. Why does everyone forces me to choose between my big brother and you? Why won’t my big brother come back?’
‘Don’t cry,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Hao Yan Che was angry and heartbroken to see Yuan Gun Gun devastated. He hugged Yuan Gun Gun. He was angry she was upset with him for breaking another man’s gift to her, and she was crying because of another man. His heart hurt because she was in pain.
Yuan Gun Gun let Hao Yan Che constrict her body in a tight hug. There were no ifs left. Ifs were in the past. If she didn’t meet Hao Yan Che, perhaps she would have married Na Liu Ting Du and Na Liu Ting Du wouldn’t have gone to Paris all alone. There were no ifs left, because she did meet Hao Yan Che. Hao Yan Che was in her life and in her heart.
‘Right now it doesn’t matter if you say you won’t marry me,’ Hao Yan Che said. ‘It’s too late.’
Yuan Gun Gun hugged Hao Yan Che’s waist.
‘If you betray me, I’ll kill you,’ Hao Yan Che said and stroked Yuan Gun Gun’s back.
‘I won’t betray you,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Hao Yan Che was never going to let Yuan Gun Gun leave him. He held her face, and kissed her lips.
In Paris, Na Liu Ting Du licked his heart wounds. He listened to the phone disconnection signal. He asked himself when he became so blind and petty. There was only one answer, he became blind and petty the day he acknowledged he loved Yuan Gun Gun.
On the other side of Na Liu Ting Du’s phone, Hao Yan Che took Yuan Gun Gun to room two. In room two servants clustered around Yuan Gun Gun and fussed over her.
Hao Yan Che didn’t know how long he waited to see Yuan Gun Gun wear the wedding dress to marry him. She looked beautiful and delicate in the white lace wedding dress.
‘Che, when can I eat?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked. ‘I’m really hungry.’
Hao Yan Che unwrapped a chocolate and put it in Yuan Gun Gun’s mouth.
‘Wait a bit,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Hao Yan Che was satisfied how beautiful Yuan Gun Gun looked in the wedding dress and the light makeup that didn’t hide her natural beauty.
‘I want to eat more,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Yuan Gun Gun put out her hand, and Hao Yan Che patted her hand.
‘None left,’ Hao Yan Che said.
‘You’re lying,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Yuan Gun Gun searched for chocolates in Hao Yan Che’s pockets.
‘There really is none left,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘Ready?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
