Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 705
Chapter 705: Let Her Have A Taste Of Losing
Tang Ruge was a smart person. She knew that Lu Yan could not win against Gu Zheng. If she became Gu Zheng’s enemy, the entire Tang family would be implicated.
After pondering for a moment, Tang Ruge walked over to Qiao Xi with a glass of wine in her hand. “Xi Xi, I’m sorry. I apologize. I didn’t know that the calligraphy piece was fake.
“I didn’t expect my father to make such a mistake. I accidentally misunderstood you. Xi Xi, can you forgive me?”
Tang Lingyun said arrogantly, “As the mistress of the Gu family, you won’t mind such a small matter, right?”
Qiao Xi was annoyed in her heart. Were these two idiots done? She was already showing them enough respect by not looking for them to settle the score. However, they still dared to come look for trouble?
She was about to speak when Gu Zheng slowly walked over. “Miss Tang.”
Tang Ruge smiled. She was neither obsequious nor distant. Instead, she smiled appropriately. “President Gu.”
Gu Zheng smirked. “Miss Tang, has anyone ever said that you’re ugly?”
Gu Yao: “???” ‘Brother, are you so straightforward now?’ Although he also thought that Miss Tang was not good-looking, it was too much of a slap to her face to say it out loud. He was not showing her any respect at all!
The corners of Qiao Xi’s mouth twitched slightly. She had almost forgotten that this Gu Zheng in front of her was the secondary personality. It was his nature to be arrogant and vicious.
Although Gu Zheng had little experience, he was not stupid. The Tang family was a porcelain family, while the head of the Tang family was a famous collector. How could he have collected a fake? Tang Ruge clearly knew that her calligraphy piece was a fake, but she pretended not to know. After the matter was exposed, she said that she was deceived and claimed to also be a victim. Did she really think everyone was stupid?
Seeing Tang Ruge’s face, Gu Zheng felt annoyed and said, “Miss Tang, it’s not your fault that you’re ugly, but it’s your fault for coming out to scare others.”
The smile on Tang Ruge’s face froze abruptly, and the corners of her mouth twitched. She wanted to flare up, but she did not dare to. She forced a smile. Her crying and smiling expressions were indeed extremely ugly. After a long time, she finally controlled the expression on her face and regained her composure.
“Mrs. Gu, this is my fault. It’s natural for you not to forgive me. I’ll give you an apology gift. I hope you can accept it,” Tang Ruge said.
Gu Yao snorted. “Let’s talk about Eternal Winter Snow first! You haven’t even given it yet but you still have the cheek to say such words!”
Tang Ruge’s face was livid. She was born into a noble family and was admired by everyone. She was the most dazzling existence among the noble daughters. When had she ever been humiliated like this?
She was silent for a moment before leaving with red eyes.
Gu Yao suddenly frowned. “Gu Zheng, don’t you have a bad feeling? Why did Lu Yan leave just like that? I find it strange that he didn’t cause any trouble! My mother and Lu Yan are both unscrupulous people who will do anything to achieve their goals. How can they just let this matter go?!”
“Could it be that there’s something else going on?! You guys have already shown your faces at the birthday banquet. You and Qiao Xi should tell Grandma that you’ll be leaving now!”
Gu Zheng’s expression was indifferent. “We can’t leave. Otherwise, we’ll be blamed for not being devoted to the family.”
“Lu Yan is full of bad ideas! I don’t know what he’s thinking! He definitely won’t let this go! He’ll find a chance to deal with you!” Gu Yao’s dark eyes were filled with worry.
“Gu Yao, don’t worry. Here, eat.” Qiao Xi picked up some food for Gu Yao with the chopsticks, then asked with a smile, “Do you think Huang Lilan cares a lot about her position as Madam Gu?”
Gu Yao slammed the table and said firmly, “Of course! If she didn’t care, would she be so shameless as to become a mistress? Although she’s my mother, I still have to say that she’s really shameless!”
With that, Gu Yao’s eyes were filled with loneliness. “Qiao Xi, I’m actually quite conflicted. I know that she’s in the wrong, but she’s my mother, after all. She’s the person who gave birth to me. Sometimes, I even wish that I was a child who was adopted by the Gu family. That way, I won’t be her son anymore, and I won’t be stuck between the two sides.
“In order to get to the top, she did many wrong things and caused Eldest Miss Lu’s death. She used Gu Zheng to get to this position. Actually, she doesn’t love me either. She doesn’t treat me as her son at all. She just treats me as a tool to consolidate her position.”
Qiao Xi patted his hand with heartache, then smiled meaningfully. “Since she cares, then let’s make her have a taste of losing.”
