Xu Weilai clenched her hands, which had been dangling by her sides. She braced herself and refused to dodge the blow. Gu Yu clearly wanted to use Gu Xue and Gu Shuang as an excuse to mock her, and if she ran away, it would just become another laughing matter for the girls!
Gu Xue and Gu Shuang didn’t bother hiding their joy as they watched Xu Weilai’s pale white face and waited for her to embarrass herself.
In the next second, the sound of an object falling into the pond rang through the air and a large volume of water splashed out again. At the same time, a woman’s sharp screech pierced the air.
Xu Weilai watched in amazement as Gu Xue’s soulless eyes widened while she fell into the pond.
Gu Xue was even more shocked; she would never have thought that Gu Yu would, at the last moment, push her into the pond instead of Xu Weilai. She didn’t have time to react and choked on a few mouthfuls of pondwater, coughing violently when she burst out of the water.
Gu Shuang froze on spot and blinked a few times in disbelief. It took her a moment to realize what had happened, and then she rushed over to help Gu Xue and frantically attempted to pull her out of the pond.
Gu Xue had now been pushed into the pond twice, and she began trembling from the coldness of it. Feeling both angry and indignant, tears and snot rolled down her face simultaneously. Combined with her blurred makeup, she was starting to look quite comical.
She opened her mouth in a huff but didn’t dare say anything despite being filled with outrage. She could only glare at him helplessly with reddened eyes.
Almost as though Gu Yu hadn’t noticed her expression, he pointed a long finger at Xu Weilai and said, “Who is she?”
Gu Xue didn’t dare to release her anger on Gu Yu, so she took it out on Xu Weilai. Without thinking, she answered instantly, “A slut!”
Gu Yu’s expression didn’t change, and he remained cool. The tone of his voice was calm as he said, “I’ll ask you one more time. Who is she?”
Even as immature as Gu Xue was, she could feel that the coldness behind his calm tone was even more chilly than the water in the pond, and that fact made her shiver uncontrollably.
At that point, if she still couldn’t see that Gu Yu was helping Xu Weilai instead of defending her, then she really was a fool.
But why should she bow her head to Xu Weilai?
As she watched from the side, Gu Shuang quickly pulled on Gu Xue’s sleeve to remind her to watch her words!
In the Gu family, even if someone could get away with wronging the old man, no one could get away with disrespecting Gu Yu. Everyone in the family was well aware that despite his young age, Gu Yu was much more brutal than his grandfather!
Gu Xue soundlessly opened her mouth a few times before she finally squeezed a few words out of her mouth. “Sis…sister-in-law!” Tears rolled down her face as she spoke.
Gu Yu didn’t give her an ounce of sympathy and continued by asking, “Who pushed who?”
Gu Xue sobbed as she answered, “I—I pushed my sister-in-law!”
The man put his hands in his pockets and said nonchalantly, “Since you were the one that pushed her, what should you do?”
He was implying that she apologize! Gu Xue’s face immediately went pale, and she hastily whined, “But she also dragged me into the pond!”
“So, she dragged you.” Gu Yu nodded and laughed. “So, what?”
Just those two simple words had a powerful meaning to them.
The color in Gu Xue’s face had now completely drained. She felt as though she were seeing the Gu Yu of three years ago in that moment—the Gu Yu that would always protect and adore Xu Weilai no matter when or where, and no matter what was right or wrong.
“Sorry! I’m sorry, okay?” Gu Xue tossed these words over her shoulder as she ran off, crying. Gu Shuang followed closely behind.
The area by the pond suddenly quieted down.
The unexpected scene had left Xu Weilai in a dreamlike state, and she hadn’t pulled herself back to reality. She stared dumbly at Gu Yu. Was the man before her eyes real?
She watched Gu Yu slowly walk towards her while her heartbeat uncontrollably grew faster.
