Gu Ren walked towards Ye Zhi and every step of his showed her the most dazzling form of light.
The road from the stage to Ye Zhi’s side was so long that even if he quickened his pace, he felt that he was too far away from her.
But this road was short— so short to the point where he was afraid that what he would see in front of him would be nothing but an illusion.
He was so scared of the possibility that with a single touch, she might disappear.
Once he got in front of Ye Zhi, Gu Ren stopped.
Gu Ren stared at Ye Zhi almost greedily.
His gaze at her was so deep that it looked as if he wanted to reflect the amount of importance she had in his heart.
Ye Zhi looked at Gu Ren without breaking eye contact.
Gu Ren’s face that was basked in the dark was still very handsome and charming.
The only thing that changed was his appearance, not his emotions.
Gu Ren didn’t step forward and Ye Zhi didn’t move.
Across the lingering light, neither of them spoke as the two of them looked at each other.
In the silence, Gu Ren opened his mouth.
His voice was extremely low, but every word he spoke exhausted his deepest emotions.
In the dim light, Gu Ren’s voice trembled slightly, “Why don’t you turn off your light”
Ye Zhi looked at Gu Ren without blinking.
She pursed her lips, but her tears started to fall.
Ye Zhi tried her best to restrain her emotions as she whispered, “It’s too dark; I was worried that you wouldn’t be able to see me.”
Gu Ren’s heart skipped a beat and his eyes instantly became more enthusiastic.
It looked like his mind was in deep thought with every passing second.
Ye Zhi fixedly looked at Gu Ren as she raised her hand.
Wearing their wedding ring on her slender finger, she opened her mouth, “I wore the ring today, how about you”
Gu Ren pulled his thin lips together.
As he slowly raised his hand, there was also a wedding ring on his ring finger.
With that, they looked at each other and smiled.
Gu Ren looked at Ye Zhi with surging emotions in his heart.
At this time, in front of everyone, Gu Ren raised his hand.
His cold and slender hand slowly touched Ye Zhi and the corners of her eyes.
The moment his hands were about to initiate any form of contact, Gu Ren halted his movements as his fingers started to tremble.
The person standing in front of him was the very person he had missed so unbelievably much.
With a face that seemed both real and illusory, he was so afraid that he might lose his grip on this reality.
The surprisement and shock was too much for him to handle, so much so that even his touch was careful.
Ye Zhi suddenly raised her hand and took Gu Ren’s hand in hers.
Then, she closed her eyes and brought him to touch her eyes.
The moment Ye Zhi closed her eyes, tears fell again and her voice sounded softly, “Gu Ren, I am here.”
Ye Zhi’s tears fell on Gu Ren’s fingertips as the slightly cold touch scorched his heart.
In the next second, Gu Ren stretched out his hands and hugged Ye Zhi tightly in his arms.
He hugged her so tightly that he completely wrapped Ye Zhi in his arms, not wanting to keep any distance between them.
His regrets, his despair, his unease and panic… were all because of her.
