Tang Guo's POV
I stared at him for awhile to make it seem as if I was thinking. I had already knew the answer.
"Of course! We are best friends aren't we?" I tried to act innocent at first to see how he would respond. Unlucky not the way I wanted him to.
"Okay, sure." I tried to hide my disappointment with my smile. What is wrong with him? Does he like me or what?
"Hey, are you thristy?" Mao Di said trying to change the subject. "No, I'm fine. Thanks."
We sat in awkward silence for the first time since we've met. It was quite uncomfortable. Genie then enter the room with a knock.
"What's going on?" She was confused with our silence.
"Nothing." Mao Di said.
"Okay, I'll let it go this time." She then placed something in front of me.
"Medicine time, Tang Guo." I nodded and took the pills. Genie was about to leave when I asked her something. "Hey, Genie?"
"When will I get my sight back?"
"I...I don't know. The doctors say that it may take a long time. We need to find you a correct eye donor."
"Okay, thanks Genie."
"Your welcome." She said and walked out.
"Why did you ask that?" Mao Di suddenly asked.
"What do you mean?"
"Tang Guo, you know it'll take awhile for you to recover."
"I know! But you got me all wondering again."
"Tell me why you asked me if I love you or not."
"Stop changing the subject."
"I'm not. It has to do with your question."
"Do I have to?"
"Well, if you want to know my answer then..."
"I'm fine without ever knowing your answer." I pouted.
"That's not fair! Tell me, do you like me or not? And don't give me that "Of course, you're my bestfriend" crap!"
"Tang Guo I don't have to answer you."
"Yes you do! You owe an explanation!" Why is he being so hard?
"I'm gonna go get a drink. You stay here."
"Qiu Yi Cheng! Don't you dare walk away!" I heard the chair move and his footstep making their way to the door. That was when I started panicking.
"What if I told you that I love you?" I blurted out. What am I thinking? I heard him stop. Then a knock came on the door. The door open and I heard Genie's voice.
"Hey, it's medicine time." I gave her a quick smile to cover any suspisions of anything wrong.
"Hey, Genie. I'm gonna go use the bathroom. Be right back in a minute."
"Sure, take all the time that you need." I heard the door open and close again.
"So what was going on?"
"What do you mean?"
"Tang Guo, you maybe a great actress, but I heard from the outside of the door. So tell me or I can get it out of you the painful way." Damn, she always use that needle crap on me.
"Fine. Mao Di won't tell me if he likes me or not." I pause to wait for an answer. Weirdly, I got none. Silent was all I got from Genie.
Then a sudden burst of laughter scared the hell out of me.
"Oh, yeah. Go ahead and laugh at me. That will definitly make things better." I said sarcastically.
"I'm not laughing at you, silly. I'm laughing at your situation."
"What's so funny about it?"
"Isn't it obivious? Of course he likes you! Ok, so how did this all started?"
"Well, he asked me if I love him and -"
"Wait. Did he say those exact words?"
"Yes and I told that I love him, but as a friend."
"Of course not, if I did then I wouldn't bother him so much on if he loves me."
"Then why didn't you tell him you love him?"
"I wanted to hear his responds to it. Then I tried to tell him the truth before you came in, but he won't believe me!"
"Jez, did you have to be so stubborn and stupid?"
"Meanie! What help are you giving me by calling me stupid?" I pouted. I feel like all this is my fault.
"It's your fault!"I froze in shock.
"How did you know what I was thinking?"
"Your face is worth a thousand words."
"Hey -" I was about to say something when Mao Di came back.
"Finally! What took you so long?"
"What do you mean? You're the one who told me to take all the time I needed!"
"I didn't think it would take so long!" I laugh at their pointless arguement. It kind of reminded me of his and mine.
"Five minutes isn't long. Now anyways don't you want to leave?"
"Sure. See you in about an hour Tang Guo."
"Bye." Mao Di and I sat in silence. I had no idea what to say to him. I lay down on my bed and thought about what Genie said. Was what she said true? Have I really been the stubborn one? Maybe this was my fault after all. All the thinking got me tired. That plus the fact that I didn't get my afternoon nap. I forced myself to stay awake, but my will power was weaker than my desire to sleep. Soon I was in a dreamless sleep.
Gui Gui's POV I was making my way with Xiao Jie to meet Wang Zi and Xiao Jie at the movies. Ya Tou and Apple tagged along because they wanted to see a movie, while the others had to get home. Truthfully I didn't even want to go see those two, muchless talk to them. But we had to get things clear up. We arrived at the movies early so we can pick out the movie we want to watch. We got our movie tickets to Paranormal Activity 2. Of course Xiao Jie and Apple, being the two chickens in the group, objected at first, but Ya Tou and I have pretty good persuasion skills.
"Hey." I turned around and the rest followed. After about twenty minutes they finally arrive.
"Jeez, what took you so long?"
"Watch it, princess. Who said we had to be on time?"He glared at did not just called me a princess.
"Me? A princess? I guess your name really suits you after all."I smirked.
"What is that suppose to mean?"Before I can reply to him, Xiao Jie tapped on my shoulders. "Ignore him and let's just get this over with! I can't even stand being within a 10 feet radius near them!"
"Whatever. Aren't we here to settle the problem?" I said in a serious tone.
He put on a straight face. "Of course. Now what do you know?"
"Can you just tell me?"
"Is it true that you're only agreeing to this marriage because you want to inherit your family's company?" They all looked at me shocked, well except for Xiao Jie of course. Wang Zi was the fastest to recover and answer me. "Yes."
"Jackass."I whisper under my breath. What to do now? I have to find a way out of this marriage! Suddenly someone called my name. "Gui Gui!"
It was Rainie, Hebe, and Selina. A big smile came upon my face when I saw them. "Hey! What are you guys doing here?"
"To watch a moive of course!"They all gave me a hug. Xiao Jie, Ya Tou, and Apple who were very well familar with them, were all given hugs.
"So where is Ella." I searched around for my sister-in-law.
"Stop looking," Hebe said, holding my head still, "she is with Chun. They are busy with something."
"Yeah, something."Her eyes looked between Wang Zi and I. Oh, that something.
"So this is your fiance, Gui Gui?" Selina walkd up to him.
"Sure, you can say that."
"Hm, he's...OK." Selina, did I ever tell I love you?
