Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 1038
Chapter 1038: Why Are You Pretending To Be Innocent?!
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
This was not the first time Yi Cang had passed off someone else’s work as his. More than half of his works were created by others. He bullied his apprentices to create works for him and at the same time, he suppressed the rising talents. Those people joined forces to report Yi Cang and gathered all the evidence to post it online.
The evidence was clearly listed as if it had long been prepared. Yi Cang could not retort. All his titles and honor disappeared overnight. His reputation was completely ruined, and many contracts were terminated. Those who had been bullied and suppressed by him came looking for him. The former calligraphy master was completely taken down.
Qiao Xi looked at the news online and raised her eyebrows. “Gu Zheng, you did this, right?”
Gu Zheng was wearing black loose pajamas and lazily leaned against the sofa. He raised his eyes unhurriedly and glanced at the news on the screen. Something flashed past his eyes, but he quickly recovered his calm and looked at Qiao Xi with an innocent expression. “No, Yi Cang has done too many evil deeds. He has too many enemies. I didn’t have to do anything at all.”
Qiao Xi: “…” Why was Gu Zheng still pretending to be innocent in front of her?! Everyone knew his methods!
For Yi Cang to be able to survive in the art industry for so many years, he had always been very careful. The people he suppressed all had no background. After taking their work, he would give them some money to appease them if he was in a good mood or chase them away if he was in a bad mood. Even if the other party got angry, they wouldn’t dare to say anything because they knew that no one would believe them even if they reported Yi Cang. Moreover, they did not have any strong evidence.
Now, these people seemed to have agreed to join forces to report Yi Cang. Qiao Xi would never believe that Gu Zheng did nothing!
Gu Zheng lowered his eyes and looked at the document in his hand. The corners of his mouth curled into a meaningful smile. “In the end, you’re just too awesome. Everyone who offends you ends up miserable.”
Qiao Xi glared at him, then put down her phone. Yi Cang’s reputation was in shambles now, so he would probably find a place to hide for a period of time. From now on, he would never appear in front of her again.
After a moment of silence, Qiao Xi asked, “Tell me, why is Lu Muxue looking for trouble with me?”
Gu Zheng narrowed his eyes. “Is it strange for the Lu family to look for trouble with you?”

Qiao Xi said thoughtfully, “Shouldn’t they be looking for trouble with you? What’s the point of dealing with me? Gu Zheng, I’ve always been very curious. You’re the grandson of the Lu family, but the Lu family would rather support Huang Lilan’s illegitimate child than you. They even spent so much effort to scheme against you. Why exactly is that?”
Gu Zheng did not raise his head and replied with a chuckle, “Lu Yan grew up in the Lu family since he was young. After raising him for so long, they’ve developed feelings for each other. Meanwhile, the Lu family and I have always been incompatible. It’s natural for them to like Lu Yan.
“Old Master Lu is stubborn. Lu Yan is the heir he carefully nurtured. Even if he’s not the flesh and blood of the Lu family, he still has to continue on this wrong path. Moreover, if I, an illegitimate child who was abandoned by my parents and who almost died in Maple Garden, surpassed Lu Yan, whom he carefully nurtured, wouldn’t he be very embarrassed?”
For the sake of his reputation, Old Master Lu was unwilling to accept Gu Zheng in the past. He wanted to support Lu Yan, whom he had personally nurtured, to rise to power. So what if Lu Yan was not the flesh and blood of the Lu family? He thought that the person he nurtured would definitely be more perfect than Gu Zheng!
Qiao Xi nodded. Gu Zheng’s background was miserable. When he was young, he did not have enough to eat and wear. He was often abused by Huang Lilan. Everything he obtained now was obtained through his own efforts.

On the other hand, Lu Yan grew up with the love of the Lu family. He received a high level of education since he was young, and the Lu family gave him all their resources. If he could not compare to Gu Zheng, then everyone in the Lu family would lose their dignity.
Actually, it was understandable for Old Master Lu to like Lu Yan. It was because Lu Yan had grown up by his side since he was young. How could he hate him?
Perhaps there was another important reason. Old Master Lu did not like his daughter, Lu Qingyun, so he hated her biological son, Gu Zheng. Hence, when Gu Zheng looked for the Lu family when he was young, they pretended not to know anything despite knowing his identity.
When Qiao Xi thought of the hardships Gu Zheng had suffered in the past, anger arose in her heart. She snorted coldly. “The Lu family is not right in the head. Fortunately, you didn’t grow up in the Lu family. Otherwise, you would’ve become as annoying as Lu Yan.”
Gu Zheng’s tone was calm. “Everyone’s character is different. Even if I had grown up in the Lu family, I would never have become one of them.”
