It was an ancient silver white pocket watch which Gu Qiaoge had stored away cautiously.
She opened it and handed it to Mrs. Lu. There was no clock face, but had two tiny pictures. It was a locket.
Mrs. Lu was very familiar with the people in the pictures. One was herself and Yoyo and the other was Gu Yange and Mr. Gu, who had passed on.
Seeing the pictures, Mrs. Lu was shocked. Gu Qiaoge continued softly, “For those three years, I lived in pain and despair. I thought the person I loved was gone, hence I wanted to commit suicide. But now I want to live on because I still have you all here.”
Gu Qiaoge looked at Mrs. Lu then slowly continued, “Mrs. Lu, I won't beg for your forgiveness, but please don't push me away. I really want to be with you all.”
The room was silent, only their breathing could be heard.
