Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 678
Chapter 678: Not Lethal But Very Insulting
Shen Ying’s face was pale. How did she become a servant? She was clearly here to serve President Gu. She could make coffee for Gu Zheng, but how could she be ordered around by Qiao Xi?
Tears welled up in her eyes as she said pitifully, “President Gu, I… I’m here to serve you. I thought you understood what Madam Gu meant. I’m your—”
“Miss Shen, what do you think you’re here for?” Gu Zheng interrupted her and sneered. “The servant who was taking care of Young Madam’s daily needs has taken leave, so I agreed to bring you back. Otherwise, would you have been able to enter Longwan Residential?”
Shen Ying’s mind buzzed. She was the eldest daughter of the Shen family. Why should she serve Qiao Xi?
“Miss Shen, are you unqualified for this job?” Gu Zheng asked casually.
Shen Ying’s eyes turned red as she cried. “President Gu, Madam Gu asked me to be your woman. Even if you don’t like me, you shouldn’t insult me like this! Moreover, Miss Qiao didn’t object to you bringing me back. She doesn’t even care anymore, so why do you have to…”
Before she could finish, Shen Ying suddenly felt her neck tighten. A hand was grabbing her throat, tightening it as though the person wanted to break her neck.
Shen Ying looked at the man in front of her in horror. She could feel the cold killing intent in Gu Zheng’s eyes. As long as he exerted enough strength in his palm, her life would end right here.
Gu Zheng’s eyes were malicious and insidious, while his voice was cold. “Miss Shen, I don’t have time to talk nonsense with you! Before Huang Lilan sent you here, didn’t she tell you who I am?”
Shen Ying trembled and felt the air in her lungs being sucked out bit by bit. Her face turned red from being strangled. She subconsciously struggled a little. She felt like she was about to die.
How… could he kill someone?
“Serve Young Madam, do you understand?” Although it was a question, Gu Zheng’s voice was authoritative. As long as Shen Ying dared to say no, she would die here in the next second.
Gu Zheng released his hand, and Shen Ying’s body went soft as she fell to the floor. Air suddenly entered her lungs, and she could not help but cough violently. However, she did not dare to hesitate at all and hurriedly stammered, “I… Cough, cough… I’ll go make coffee for Young Madam.”
As she watched Shen Ying flee the study in horror, Qiao Xi asked curiously, “You asked Shen Ying to come to Longwan Residential just to make her a servant?”
Gu Zheng said, “That’s right! It just so happens that you lack someone to serve you, and she volunteered. With Madam Gu paying her salary, I’ll be getting a servant for free. Why don’t I use her, then?”
Qiao Xi remained silent. Gu Zheng had made a wise move.
Then, she heard Gu Zheng say slowly, “He doesn’t care about fighting with these women, but if he doesn’t teach them a lesson, they’ll naturally not let the matter rest. Hence, it’s better for me to handle this kind of matter. He has never cared about these petty things, which is why he made them think that he indulges them. However, I can’t tolerate such things.”
The person he was talking about was the original Gu Zheng. He indeed was never one to fight with women. When faced with Shen Ying’s brazen seduction, he would only turn a blind eye to it.
Even though what Gu Zheng did this time was not lethal, it was extremely insulting. Shen Ying would probably be so angry that she would not be able to sleep at night.
“He should be very happy that I helped him deal with these b*tches! Besides, they took the initiative to provoke me. It’s not too much for me to do this, right?”
Qiao Xi nodded obediently. “No, it’s not too much.”
The original Gu Zheng was more mature. He was steady and deep. He did not show his emotions on his face. Even if he could not stand Huang Lilan, he would not rashly make a move. However, this Gu Zheng would not indulge anyone. Whoever dared to provoke him would die without even knowing how!
After she finished speaking, Qiao Xi turned around and went downstairs, heading straight for the fridge.
Gu Zheng asked, “What are you going to take?”
Qiao Xi’s body stiffened. She thought that Gu Zheng’s memory was a mess and he would probably not care about her anymore. Hence, she pretended to be calm and replied, “I’m gonna eat ice cream. What’s wrong?”
As soon as he finished speaking, Gu Zheng frowned. “Who allowed you to eat ice cream? What time is it now? And you still want to eat ice cream? Aren’t you worried about getting a stomach ache?
“You’re already so old, yet you’re still as gluttonous as a child. You’re eating so much ice cream. When your period comes, you’ll feel uncomfortable again. No wonder he kept reminding me to take care of you!”
Qiao Xi: “???”
What? Could it be that the two of them could talk?
On the other hand, Shen Ying made another cup of coffee and was about to send it over when the two of them went back to their room to rest. She could not suppress the anger in her heart and threw the exquisite coffee cup onto the floor.
