LTPC Chapter 19: The Night Is Long

Gu Tai’s achievements in school had always been among the best. His character was a little cold and proud, but he was also an extremely smart child with good genes and a handsome face. Naturally, it was easy for him to become the teacher’s “heart treasure.” Moreover, even if he didn’t understand his homework, they were willing to tutor him. Therefore, Yi Ran didn’t need to help him much.

She watched him as he worked, remembering that his grandparents also hired an after school tutor for him. She couldn’t bear to let him get tired and said, “Look at the picture book first. Then you can do the rest of it tomorrow.”

Yi Ran took him to the guest room to settle down and sleep. Then, she went and took a shower, the hot steam making her feel radiant and relaxed. Afterward, she laid in bed, brushing through Weibo. She paused when she saw Gu Tingchuan. A few days ago, he and several starring actors had attended a charity event to publicize Homecoming.

In addition to allowing himself to be photographed and recorded on television, he calmly responded to the questions about the development of the film. He was very vocal in showing his attitude and full-fledged enthusiasm for the upcoming film. However, any questions about his personal life only received short answers.

Those clear eyes of his had the ability to penetrate through the screen into the hearts of young girls.

Yi Ran was still looking at the pictures with great enthusiasm when Gu Tingchuan came out from his shower. As he wiped his damp hair with a towel, he saw that she was looking at her phone again and thought that it was normal.

“What are you looking at?” His eyes examined her. “I’m very happy to see you laughing.”

Yi Ran looked up and saw Gu Tingchuan wearing only a pair of trousers, leaving his upper body uncovered. His strong muscles made her heartbeat sped up. This figure was really like a mountain with flowing water, making people salivate.

She guiltily closed Weibo and said, “Nothing. Just that some network segments are very funny.”

Gu Tingchuan suddenly faintly smiled. “In fact, sometimes they are very convenient. Like a Weibo account. Maybe I should get one.”

“That’s good!” Yi Ran sat up and, after thinking the matters through, said, “No good! Not a good idea. A lot of women would make public confessions to you.”

Gu Tingchuan’s left hand rose up to cover his widening smile. Yi Ran saw this little action and had to shift her gaze away.

Outside, the night was deep and the moonlight was silent, the bright illumination reflected in his dark eyes. He just barely walked over to the bed and sat down when he saw her quickly turning her mobile phone face down.

Gu Tingchuan thought it was funny but did not expose her timid little trick.

“How is your family recently? Are your parents still okay?” Gu Tingchuan asked naturally.

Yi Ran’s nervous body relaxed a little as she responded to his question, “En, they are very good….I also thought about what you said last time…that…it would be good to eat together with everyone to improve their feelings.”

She was worried that it would be too abrupt, but the man’s bright face showed a faint smile. “I will arrange it as soon as possible, you can rest assured.”

Some words came to her lips, but she thought about it and still didn’t know how to tell him.

If she said to Gu Tingchuan, “You are too busy to come home,” what was the practical significance of this? He was originally a workaholic. Should she understand and be considerate?

In fact, Yi Ran’s mood was a little chaotic. Under such circumstances, she didn’t know what kind of thoughts she wanted to express. Their marriage life was already like this, and there was no turning back.

But it was difficult to just be satisfied. There was always some emptiness in her heart, but she couldn’t really pinpoint where this feeling was coming from.

As Gu Tingchuan drew back the cover, he told her, “Once you become a little more used to some of my work environment, I will take you to an event.”

Yi Ran turned her head and looked at him with surprise. “Me? Will it be too high-profile?”

“It will be similar to the charity event a few days ago and won’t be a problem.” He leaned over and brushed his mouth lightly over her earlobe, whispering, “You should get used to the identity of ‘Mrs Gu.’”

As a matter of fact, to Yi Ran, Director Gu was someone with a steady temperament, a man who had the ability to endure and to conceal his true thoughts. Therefore, it was quite rare to see him aroused and passionate.

So, when he showed her this side of him, she couldn’t help but feel somewhat intimidated.

Yi Ran didn’t know whether it was normal for people’s first few times to be like her own. For them to also be overcome by such things.

Compared to the gentle care of the first time, this time, he penetrated much deeper, making her frantic to retreat. But every time she twisted her body, she only ended up falling deeper into submission. The body, from head to toe, seemed to tingle and ache. She could not escape his ministrations. Every stroke seemed to alternate between long and short, making her legs go weak with the sensation.

Gu Tingchuan wanted to change positions and pulled her up from the bed. Their bodies clung to each other without any hindrance. She put her head on his shoulder, panting into the base of his neck and unintentionally making it harder for him to restrain himself.

Because she was an “Internet Addiction Girl,” Yi Ran naturally knew a lot about this area. But, it was only knowledge that had never been put into practice before, so now, she couldn’t help but feel shy.

His whole body was very warm and moist with sweat, but it was still incomparably sexy. She was provoked time and time again, and when she opened her mouth to ask for mercy, her eyes were misty.

Gu Tingchuan’s solid back muscles were regularly undulating, and her lips occasionally opened against the sweat on his neck, which tasted slightly bitter but ultimately excited her even more.

“Why does it seem like your physical strength is lacking instead?”

Yi Ran did not think that he would still remember to tease her at a time like this. Her heart was provoked, but her body did not seem to care. “What did you say…..Ah!”

Yi Ran’s sweet, throaty sounds were particularly charming, making Gu Tingchuan chuckle. He held her waist as he exerted himself, proving his physical strength beyond a doubt.

“You are so light. You should eat more.”

Gu Tingchuan’s back, waist, hips, and thighs….everything made Yi Ran blush. If, a few months ago, she thought of lying in bed with Gu Tingchuan, it could only be considered the most shameful daydream.

But now, it was a reality. She was straddling him, their bodies colliding and connecting, the sensation of it making her completely forgetting herself.

Suddenly, Yi Ran’s whole body fiercely trembled, and Gu Tongchuan embraced her, his voice low and gentle as he appeased her. “Bear with it for a little longer. It’ll end soon.”

…..

They passed the time appropriately and, after the “full” weekend, Yi Ran returned to work.

Monday was usually a nightmare for all office workers. When the flag-raising ceremony ended, she stumbled into the office. It seemed that she had just sat down when Yao Juan came along. He still wore that pair of glasses and looked warm and tidy. He looked down at her and asked, “Do you have time? I have something to tell you.”

Yi Ran nodded and already guessed what it might be about.

They walked to the empty playground. Yao Juan slowly said to her, “In Gu Tai’s case, because we had already spoken with Mr. Gu and also because his parents are going through some special difficulties, I didn’t bother to visit his home.”

She remembered Gu Tingchuan’s care and guidance to Gu Tai in the past two days. She thought that he did a pretty good in place of Gu Tai’s parents.

“As for Hao Ziyue, I went to his house this weekend. His parents were definitely not there. I talked to him alone for awhile. He mentioned that he was angry with Gu Tai that day, not only because he was irritated, but because he thought everyone was helping Gu Tai. I talked a bit of sense into him and his mood is much better now.”

Yi Ran felt that this situation was also a very important trigger for the “war” between the two. She thought for a moment and worriedly said, “Didn’t Shi Xiang strictly forbidden us to go to his parents? Are you really going?”

Yao Juan looked helpless as he pushed his glasses up with his thumb and ring finger. He said, “I really didn’t do much, merely following up to finally let his mother promise to come to the school. But, listen to me, you don’t want to intervene in this matter.”

Yi Ran was slightly surprised. “What are you saying? What do you mean?”

Yao Juan thought for a moment. In the end, he decided to clarify. “His parents‘ background are unclear, and they have a special relationship with the principal. If you are involved in this, it will only affect your future.”

“You are willing to face this so why can’t I do the same?”

“Yi Ran, although we haven’t worked very long together, I understand your character. Hao Ziyue’s mother will definitely irritate you. At that time, you can only choose to be patient or to argue with her. If it is the former, then you will feel very wronged, and if you choose the latter, after venting, the troubles will be endless… I care about your matters.”

After he said this, he suddenly paused unexpectedly. Because they were standing close together, he could see the red love mark under the girl’s neck and near the collarbone, and a surge of fire washed over him.

Yao Yuan quickly removed his gaze and stabilized his emotions. He said, “Women are weaker in the workplace. So, you shouldn’t become involved in this kind of thing…”

After he said this, he saw that Yi Ran still wished to disagree, and he suddenly interrupted before she could speak, “Yi Ran, you…”

Yao Juan was silent for a moment before he finally asked, “Do you have a boyfriend?”

Yi Ran was taken aback, and her heart suddenly shook. But, it immediately calmed down. Because she was too preoccupied with Gu Tai’s matter, she still hadn’t explained or mentioned her marital status.

“Actually, I’m already married.”

The other person immediately displayed a stunned expression.

————————————

Xixi: Yao Juan may have had a 2 months head start, but Gu Tingchuan was just too decisive.

Also didn't help his case that he was kind and generous to all of his co-workers. I'm not saying he shouldn't be like that. It's just more attractive to a woman if a confident man approaches her with a solid plan…which is what GT did.

Yao Juan is too gentlemanly lol if only he just decisively ask her for a date – I mean he knew she was going on various blind dates.
