Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 709
Chapter 709: I’m Not That Childish
Qiao Xi hugged Gu Zheng’s waist and said sweetly, “Ah Zheng~ I want to go!”
Gu Zheng was silent for a moment before smiling. “You have to pay a price if you want to go. If you beg me, I’ll bring you there!”
Qiao Xi frowned. She had already acted cute just now, yet this bastard still wanted to make things difficult for her. He was really too much, so she directly grunted coldly. “I’m not going!”
‘When you leave, I’ll go myself!’
When Gu Zheng heard Qiao Xi’s heartfelt thoughts, he could not help but laugh out loud. He gently stroked her hair. “Mrs. Gu, we’re the main characters in today’s scene. How can we appear so easily? We have to wait for the matter to blow up before we go.
“I originally wanted to wait until nine, but since you don’t want to go, then forget it. Have a good rest. I’ll get going first.”
When Qiao Xi heard this, she hurriedly grabbed his hand and looked at him obsequiously. “I’ll go, I’ll go!”
Gu Zheng looked at her affectionately. Then, he took out a black box from the drawer and took out a pinhole camera. He placed it on the button of his suit.
Qiao Xi looked at him with a puzzled expression. “What are you doing?”
Gu Zheng frowned. “He asked you to record Huang Lilan’s collapse, didn’t he? He wants to watch it after he wakes up, so I’ll record it.”
Qiao Xi widened her eyes. “How did you know?”
Gu Zheng’s hands froze. How could he admit that he had the same thought? He wanted to record it and watch it whenever he was in a bad mood.
After a moment of silence, Gu Zheng replied casually, “I know him.
“In order to give me this opportunity, he didn’t sleep the entire night. He won’t be able to see such an exciting scene, so he definitely asked you to record it. However, I’m not that childish. I don’t care about such boring things.”
The entire bedroom fell silent.
The corners of Qiao Xi’s mouth twitched. ‘Don’t you blush when you lie? Don’t think I don’t know that the two of you have similar personalities. Everything he does is what you truly think.’
Huang Lilan brought many guests to the front hall for breakfast before visiting the Gu family’s old residence.
“Madam Gu, the Gu family’s old residence has been built for so many years but it’s still so gorgeous. Your mood will definitely improve as long as you stay here.”
Huang Lilan smiled and said, “That’s right! I don’t usually have much to do. I just plant flowers and drink tea. Fortunately, Shen Ying spends time with me, so I’m not that bored.”
Everyone knew that Huang Lilan did not like Qiao Xi and wanted to chase Qiao Xi out of the Gu family so that Shen Ying could take over Qiao Xi’s position. Everyone smiled tacitly.
“In my opinion, Qiao Xi is indeed inferior to Miss Shen. She grew up in the countryside, while Miss Shen is the daughter of the Shen family. She’s a noble daughter who has been living in luxury. Only someone like her is worthy of President Gu.”
Huang Lilan smiled and nodded, then she furrowed her brows. “But I don’t know how Ah Zheng was bewitched into marrying Qiao Xi behind our backs. If he really likes Qiao Xi, Shen Ying will definitely feel aggrieved by his side. I can’t bear to part with her either!”
Everyone agreed and praised Huang Lilan.
Seeing that it was about time, Huang Lilan said, “There’s nothing much to see in the courtyard. Why don’t we take a look inside the villa? Weiming likes to collect some antiques, so he can bring them out for everyone to admire.”
The guests had long heard that the Gu family had many treasures, but they never had the chance to see them. Now that Huang Lilan was taking the initiative to show them around, they naturally would not refuse.
Everyone walked toward the main residence. Qiao Xi looked at the group of people and said excitedly, “They’re going! They’re going! I’m looking forward to it!”
“Huang Lilan will push open the door to your room only to discover that there’s no one inside. Then, she’ll hear ambiguous voices coming from next door. She’ll think that you and Shen Ying are next door. When she pushes the door open, she’ll realize that it’s her husband! Hahaha…”
Gu Zheng lowered his eyes and pinched her cheek. “Mrs. Gu, it’s a pity that you don’t write novels with your creativity.”
Qiao Xi looked at him with a smile, then the smile on her face suddenly froze. She was slightly troubled. “But… what about Gu Yao?”
A trace of heartache flashed past Gu Zheng’s eyes. “If it weren’t for Gu Yao, Huang Lilan would have long been gone from this world. However, we won’t have to be afraid of her anymore.”
“Why?” Qiao Xi asked.
Gu Zheng’s eyes were filled with coldness. “Perhaps you can sense that Huang Lilan doesn’t like Gu Yao much either.”
