Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 880
Chapter 880: True Lovers Wouldn’t Miss Out On Each Other
After playing a song, Gu Zheng slowly opened his deep eyes and looked at the woman he loved with extreme gentleness. His thin lips parted slightly. “Did you like it?”
Qiao Xi: “…” She dug her ears. If it was not because there was something wrong with her ears, then it was because Gu Zheng was too narcissistic. He played so terribly yet still had the cheek to ask her if she liked it?
After a while, the door was pushed open again. Gu Yao rushed in in a panic, his eyes still a little dazed. He looked like he had just woken up. “What happened? I heard a scary sound just now. It sounded like the soundtrack from a horror movie!”
Qiao Xi’s eyelids twitched. It was not that there was something wrong with her ears but that there was something wrong with Gu Zheng’s performance. Gu Zheng himself was not embarrassed in the slightest and said indifferently, “You must have had a nightmare.”
Gu Yao looked confused. “That’s impossible! I heard it very clearly!”
Gu Zheng did not even raise his head and snorted. “Why not? You’ve had nightmares since you were young. It’s not strange for you to hear terrifying sounds. Moreover, we didn’t hear any sounds. Xi Xi, am I right?”
Qiao Xi: “?” What could she say?
Unexpectedly, Gu Yao was silly enough. After being fooled by Gu Zheng, he said seriously, “You’re right. I must have had a nightmare. I haven’t been sleeping well recently.”
Gu Zheng nodded, and his voice softened a little. “Don’t be afraid. If you have time, go see a doctor. Hurry up and go back to your room to rest.”
With that, Gu Yao obediently returned to his room. Qiao Xi shook her head helplessly. Gu Yao was just too naive. He believed everything others said.
Gu Zheng slowly stood up and muttered, “This zither is indeed difficult to control.”
Qiao Xi smiled slyly. It turned out that there was something that Gu Zheng could not do. It was probably because Gu Zheng was too outstanding. As long as it was something he wanted to do, there was nothing he could not do. In her heart, Gu Zheng was an omnipotent existence. He founded Gu Corporation from scratch and was all-powerful in the business world at a young age. It seemed that nothing could stump him. Now, he said that the zither was difficult.
“I thought that you knew everything, but it turns out you don’t,” Qiao Xi said with a smile.
Gu Zheng’s expression was indifferent as he carefully put away the ancient zither. “Of course, I have things I don’t know, but Xi Xi, you know everything. You know how to paint, compose, design, and play the zither. You’re the most special person in this world.
“Do you still remember the day we met at the Civil Affairs Bureau?”
Qiao Xi’s thoughts drifted. That day, she was supposed to register her marriage with Gu Moling. After Qiao Rou ruined it, she looked for Gu Zheng in a fit of anger and married him on impulse.
After getting married, she found out that Gu Zheng appeared at the Civil Affairs Bureau to get married to the daughter of the Meng family. Later on, he said that he did not go to the Civil Affairs Bureau for Meng Wan.
“Actually, I have a secret that I’ve been hiding from you. I went to the Civil Affairs Bureau for you.” Gu Zheng’s voice was gentle, but the words he said were like a rock that smashed into Qiao Xi’s heart, causing ripples.
After a long time, Qiao Xi said in surprise, “You knew that I was Black Tide?”
Although she and her senior had known each other for a long time, they did not know each other’s true identities. Moreover, how did her senior know that she would go to the Civil Affairs Bureau?
Gu Zheng’s lips curled into a smile, and his deep eyes were filled with deep love. “I don’t know why, but I had a feeling that someone very important was waiting for me there. If I didn’t go, I’d definitely regret it for the rest of my life.”
It was just a feeling. Gu Zheng, who had always been cold, wilfully went to the Civil Affairs Bureau because of a gut feeling. Even he did not know the reason for his behavior. At that time, he did not know that Qiao Xi was his junior at all. There was only a voice in the depths of his heart that told him that he had to go no matter what. He did not go there for Meng Wan but for someone important.
Qiao Xi was abruptly stunned, and her face was filled with disbelief. “If you hadn’t believed your gut feeling that day and refused to go to the Civil Affairs Bureau, we would’ve probably missed out on each other.”
Unexpectedly, Gu Zheng shook his head. “No, even if we didn’t meet that day, we would’ve met in the future. As long as I met you, I’d fall in love with you, so I won’t miss out on you no matter what.”
True fate was not a coincidence. No matter when you met them, you would think that they were the person who would accompany you for the rest of your life.
Qiao Xi rarely heard Gu Zheng say sweet words. She curled up in Gu Zheng’s embrace with a sweet smile on the corners of her mouth. Marrying Gu Zheng might have been an impulsive move, but it was the best decision in her life.
