Chapter 39: She’s Unworthy (1)
Nyoi-Bo Studio Nyoi-Bo Studio
Tuesday, ten in the morning. At the entrance of the Civil Affairs Bureau…
The agreed-upon time arrived, but Gu Yu was still nowhere to be seen. Mr. Gu Sr. pulled a long face in displeasure.
Xu Weilai stood obediently to the side. She couldn’t identify how exactly she was feeling and had no idea if she was hoping for him to turn up or not.
The other day, he had almost strangled her to death. It was obvious how much he hated her and was against this marriage.
If it had been up to her, she’d keep her distance far, far away from him. But alas, the choice wasn’t hers.
Without realizing it, half an hour passed, and Mr. Gu Sr.’s face had darkened considerably. He thumped his walking stick on the floor forcefully and was about to have Lin give Gu Yu a call when a black sedan suddenly appeared in front of them.
The car came to a halt, and the door opened. The man alighted from the vehicle. His posture was straight, and he was incomparably good-looking. However, he exuded coldness, and his eyes were without warmth.
He looked up, and his gaze swept past them. It lingered on Xu Weilai for a moment longer, and Xu Weilai felt the hairs on the back of her neck stand in response.
He was here…
Xu Weilai looked down and subconsciously wrung her hands together. She could feel her heart skip a beat.
Now that Gu Yu was here, Mr. Gu Sr. released a huge sigh of relief, but his pride made him stubborn. He remarked, “Had you come a second later, you would have ended up with a new grandmother!”
Gu Yu pretended not to hear him. He acknowledged his grandfather with a nod of his head and called out, “Grandpa.”
As usual, he treated Xu Weilai as if she were invisible. He didn’t even so much as look at her out the corner of his eye.
Grandpa Gu sighed inwardly when he witnessed that. There was a minute moment when he had doubted himself and questioned if his insistence on their marriage was wrong.
4However, that thought was fleeting. He had always felt that Little Weilai was destined to be Yu’s savior. Just like how, when Yu had met with his accident and had almost become a vegetable, it was Little Weilai’s unwavering companionship that had finally woken Yu up.
This instance wasn’t going to be an exception, either.
Little Weilai would definitely regain Yu’s heart, and they would live happily ever after.
He trusted his own gut, and he was confident that he knew his grandson well enough.
When he was through with his thoughts, he cleared his throat and looked at Gu Yu somberly. He said, “Your presence here means that you agree to this marriage and are willing to marry Little Weilai. Since that is the case, you will have to take responsibility for this marriage, and take responsibility for Little Weilai. You’d better treat her well. If she were to suffer for any reason, I won’t let you off!”
Gu Yu’s eyes darkened, but they didn’t reveal his emotions. He lifted his eyes and looked at Xu Weilai before his lips curled in a sardonic grin. He stated carefully, word by word, “I can marry her.”
Even Grandpa Gu was stunned by how easily Gu Yu had capitulated.
However, in the next second, Gu Yu added, “But I have conditions!”
Grandpa Gu recovered his composure and said, “State them.”
Gu Yu didn’t look at Mr. Gu Sr. Instead, his eyes focused on Xu Weilai, and he sneered at her scornfully as he spoke. “This marriage is not to be made public, and there is to be no wedding. Also, no one else is to know of my relationship with her.”
2They had known that Gu Yu wouldn’t give in easily. But they hadn’t expected that his conditions would be this harsh, either.
His conditions meant that even if Xu Weilai married him, she wouldn’t become a proper wife!
Grandpa Gu was so incensed that he almost uttered the words, “Go to hell!” However, Xu Weilai, who had been silent throughout, suddenly spoke up.
