Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 731
Chapter 731: Apologize For Huang Lilan
Gu Zheng frowned.
Song Shiyu did not notice the president’s displeasure and continued, “Young Madam is the eldest daughter of the Yin family now. She has many powerful families behind her. I don’t think you’re worthy of her.”
Song Shijing rushed over and covered Song Shiyu’s mouth, but it was too late. Gu Zheng turned around slowly and looked at Song Shiyu with a smile. “I’m not worthy of her?”
“Yes! You’re not worthy—”
Song Shiyu could not breathe as Song Shijing held him tightly.
Unexpectedly, Gu Zheng said thoughtfully, “You’re right, but don’t you think I’ve changed?”
Song Shiyu broke free and suddenly felt that the president had become more magnanimous. He did not say that his salary would be deducted this time. It seemed that the president had realized the difference between him and Young Madam.
Song Shiyu thought for a moment and replied with a smile, “President, I think your temper is getting better. You’re not as bad-tempered as before. You won’t deduct my salary for no reason now.”
Gu Zheng smiled sinisterly. “Because I think that deducting your salary is useless to you and I can’t restrain you, so I’ve decided to send you to the island to train. What do you think?”
Song Shiyu: “…” ‘I was wrong! I was thinking too much. I thought that the president’s temper had improved, but he’s even more vicious now!’
“Qiao Xi!” At this moment, Gu Yao rushed in. He saw Gu Zheng before he saw Qiao Xi.
“Huh? Gu Zheng, what are you talking about?” Gu Yao asked curiously.
The moment Song Shiyu saw Gu Yao, it was as if he had seen his savior. He quickly said, “I said that Young Madam doesn’t want to share her secrets with the president anymore.”
When Gu Yao heard that, his expression instantly turned serious. Then, he said fearlessly, “Gu Zheng, you’re doomed! How long have you been married for? You’ve already fallen out of favor?”
Gu Zheng’s eyes were deep as he suppressed his emotions and slowly said, “Gu Yao, are you itching for a beating?”
Gu Yao immediately looked pitiful. “Brother, I was wrong.”
With that, Gu Yao ran upstairs to look for Qiao Xi.
At this moment, Qiao Xi had already returned to the study. She had just turned on her computer to modify the design when she saw Gu Yao rush in as if he was very anxious.
Gu Yao’s eyes were red as he panted. “Qiao Xi, I have something to say.”
Qiao Xi was slightly surprised. “Alright, go ahead.”
The usually carefree Gu Yao suddenly had a serious expression and bowed deeply to Qiao Xi. “Qiao Xi, I want to apologize on behalf of Huang Lilan!”
He still decided to tell Qiao Xi the truth. “The person who asked Qiao Rou to crash into you back then was Huang Lilan, not Lu Yan. I found a message between Huang Lilan and Qiao Rou.”
Gu Yao sent a few photos to Qiao Xi. “Lu Yan did get someone to cut the brake line, but Huang Lilan was worried. Later on, she got someone to drive a truck to kill you and fake the scene of the accident. Coincidentally, Qiao Rou had already broken down and wanted to kill you. Hence, Huang Lilan found the perfect scapegoat.
“Lu Yan doesn’t know about this. It was planned by Huang Lilan. She was willing to do anything for Lu Yan. Now that the matter has been exposed, Lu Yan can’t wait to cut ties with her.”
Gu Yao’s eyes were red as he choked. “Actually, Huang Lilan wasn’t that bad to me. After all, she raised me. Moreover, she’s right. She has never hit me since I was young. I always thought that she really loved me, but she just did it in the wrong way. That’s why I’m willing to bear her mistake for her.”
Qiao Xi was silent. Actually, Huang Lilan’s life was very legendary. She went from a servant to the mistress of the Gu family. She should cherish her opportunity, but for the sake of paving the way for Lu Yan, she ruined her life. Now, Lu Yan wished for nothing more than to kill her with his own hands to avoid being criticized.
Meanwhile, Gu Yao, who had always been living as her chess piece, wanted to atone for her sins.
Qiao Xi’s heart ached. She stood up and hugged Gu Yao, gently patting his back.
Gu Yao said tearfully, “Qiao Xi, I’m really sorry! I didn’t expect her to be so vicious. She wanted to kill you and Gu Zheng. Now, she’s receiving the punishment she deserves!”
“That’s all her doing. What does it have to do with you?” Qiao Xi comforted him softly. Her heart really ached for Gu Yao. His heart was soft, pure, and kind. How could Huang Lilan bear to hurt such a cute and obedient child?
