Chapter 288: Etched in Memory (04)

Zhuang Nai Nai stands up and begins walking towards the door.

“Gu Qing Yan, you—-“ Gu Xing Shan’s face turns scarlet.  Everyone inside her world has the habit of toying with words, this is the first time she sees someone so direct.

When Zhuang Nai Nai reaches the doorway, she hears Gu De Shou’s voice saying, “Come on up, Qing Yan.”

She stops in her steps and looks up to where Gu De Shou is standing on the second floor. 

Then, Gu De Shou turns to Gu Xing Shan solemnly, “As for you, stop scheming and get your act together.”

Gu Xing Shan’s eyes turn red as she looks at her father in grievance, “You don’t want me and mom anymore, dad?  Do you prefer this lowly woman and her so-called mother instead?”

Her earnest voice seems to have melt Gu De Shou’s heart.  He is momentarily stunned before speaking in a much gentler voice, “What nonsense are you talking about?”

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

“Am I wrong?  You left the country to visit her mother for days!  That woman is evil, dad!  How could you and Gu Qing Yan side with her and hurt my mother’s heart?”  Tears start to flow from Gu Xing Shan’s eyes.  “You and mom had been very loving for all these years, you were the model couple in our society.  We never had any trouble within the family, unlike my peers.  But now?  How could you hurt mother to the point where she leaves you because of your mistress?  How could you raise your voice at me for her?”

Gu De Shou frowns as he snaps at her, “Be quiet!  Your Aunt Zhuang is not my mistress!”

“What Aunt?  Isn’t she just a mistress?  A mistress who ruined other people’s marriage!”

“Shut up!” Gu De Shou’s voice becomes even harsher.  “Go to your room!  You are grounded for 3 days!”

Gu Xing Shan stomps angrily, “I originally thought of staying here to keep you company after my brother went after my mother, but now, from the look of it, you don’t need me here anymore.”  Gu Xing Shan runs out and fiercely orders her driver to prepare the car.

Gu De Shou looks at the doorway with heavy eyes.

Zhuang Nai Nai, on the other hand, learns a lot from watching their fight.  Gu De Shou had been pretty eager to find excuses to visit them in the Si Residence, but Zhuang Nai Nai kept rejecting his insinuation, saying that Si Zheng Ting does not like being disturbed.  But, now……   He ought to know that she has been ill, why didn’t he take that chance as an excuse to visit her in the mansion?  

From the look of it, he really went out of the country, to visit Zhuang mama.

Li Yu Feng, his rightful wife must be rightfully angry.

But still……. Mistress?

Zhuang Nai Nai purses her lips.  From her memory, Zhuang mama is not the type to become other people’s mistress, but then again, she does not seem the type to steal other people’s child either.

Gu De Shou stands where he stood, frozen.

After a while, he finally looks at Zhuang Nai Nai, “Come on up.”

Gu De Shou looks like he has aged years. 

Zhuang Nai Nai looks at him.  Perhaps it is due to their blood relation, but Zhuang Nai Nai suddenly finds him pitiful.

In the end, whatever mockery she has in mind remains there.  She climbs up the stairs to him.

Serene:  Gu De Shou is such a trash, omg.
