Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 1048
Chapter 1048: Xia Yunqiu’s Enemy
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Meng Fan looked to be in his 20s and was probably not much older than Xi Xi. Xia Yunqiu had died more than 10 years ago. At that time, Meng Fan was only a few years old. How could he have a grudge against Xia Yunqiu?
After thinking for a moment, Gu Zheng understood. Meng Fan’s parents probably knew Xia Yunqiu. Because of their grudge, Meng Fan treated Xia Yunqiu as his enemy.
Meng Fan leaned against the chair and shook his head helplessly. “What a pity! Xia Yunqiu is already dead, but I happened to hear that she has a daughter…”
Before he could finish, the cold muzzle of the pistol was pressed against his forehead. Song Shijing’s face was cold, and he did not hesitate at all. Meng Fan was surprised.
After a moment of silence, Meng Fan suddenly laughed. His voice carried a hint of madness. “President Gu, it seems that you really love her, but how long can you protect her? Will you be by her side at all times?”
Gu Zheng waved his hand, and Song Shijing put down his pistol.
“Doctor Meng, I do love Mrs. Gu very much, but you also have someone you care about.” Gu Zheng’s casual words made Meng Fan’s expression change. He pursed his lips and did not say anything else.
Gu Zheng glanced at him lazily and said, “Doctor Meng, I think I’ve already made myself very clear. Before you do anything, you have to think about the consequences. If there’s nothing else, you can leave.”
After chatting for a while, Gu Zheng started chasing him away.
Meng Fan was unconvinced. “I was here first. Why should I leave?”
Gu Zheng did not even raise his eyes. His long fingers gently stroked the teacup as he chuckled. “10 minutes ago, this teahouse was already mine.”
What he meant was that this was his territory, and he had to leave if he wanted him to.
Meng Fan was stunned for a few seconds. He gritted his teeth and said, “As expected of President Gu. As long as you want it, you can get it easily.”
Then, he stood up and left. After he was gone, Song Shijing said, “President, I’ve already investigated. Madam Xia Yunqiu didn’t have much contact with many people. I haven’t found out who she had a grudge against. As for Meng Fan’s parents, I don’t know their identities either.”
Gu Zheng narrowed his eyes. The results of the investigation showed that Xia Yunqiu had a gentle temper and was kind to others. She had no enemies at all. Moreover, since it was a grudge from the previous generation, why did Meng Fan’s parents have their son take revenge? What kind of grudge could make Meng Fan give up his family’s identity and come to Li City to take revenge?

“Let’s go to Yingyun Hall.” Gu Zheng’s tone became gentle. “In case she’s bullied.”
After the two of them got into the car, Song Shijing reported what had just happened in Yingyun Hall. Then, he suddenly thought of something and cleared his throat. “President, um… if Song Shiyu did something… something stupid, please forgive him.”
On the other hand, after Meng Fan left the teahouse, a trace of viciousness flashed past his eyes. Gu Zheng was really not easy to deal with.
Xia Yunqiu was already dead and her only daughter could not be touched. How was he going to take revenge? Was he going to let this go?
Back then, Xia Yunqiu caused his mother to commit suicide, and his father went missing for many years after that. She died, but what about the living? How could the hatred in his heart be erased?
Qiao Xi handed the gift to Yin Jinglin. As soon as he took it, he kept talking excitedly. “Ah! Xi Xi gave me a gift. This is the first time I’ve received a gift from a girl! I’m so happy! It’s your first time in Yingyun Hall, right? I’ll get the kitchen to make some good dishes for you to try. There’s also a garden here. The scenery there is extremely beautiful. I’ll accompany you to take a look later!”
Yin Lianxin waved her hand. “Jinglin, calm down. Go out and play. You can come back after the banquet.”
Hearing this, Yin Jinglin hurriedly said, “Alright! I’ll bring Eighth Sister to the backyard to play!”

As he spoke, he held Qiao Xi’s hand and walked out.
When Qiao Xi heard Yin Jinglin call her eighth sister, she felt inexplicably awkward. After all, she was ranked sixth in the past and her brothers all called her Little Six. Now that she was ranked eighth in the Yin family, she was the youngest child.
“Fifth Brother, you should call me Xi Xi in the future. I had a few brothers before, and they all called me Little Six. I’m not used to the new term of address.”
Yin Jinglin and Gu Yao had similar personalities and did not care about such small matters. He nodded. “Alright! Xi Xi, you have the final say!”
There was another world in the backyard of Yingyun Hall. There was a small bridge with flowing water, flowers, and trees. It made one feel relaxed as soon as they walked in. Moreover, it was rare for flowers to bloom in the courtyard during this season. It seemed that someone had taken care of them well by strictly controlling the temperature and humidity.
