Chapter 711: He’s My Boyfriend
Second Old Master Gu squinted. He shut his eyes, feeling pained. There were many questions in his heart. “How would she know of Qianshu?”
“My actions had been too obvious when helping Little Shu, and that attracted their attention. I really am not aware of them putting something in Little Shu. If I had known, I would definitely have a way to get it out.” Gu Yuanli lowered his head, and his eyes were bloodshot red.
He clenched his fist. The sharp pain pricked at his body.
“It’s too late to say anything now.”
“I’m sorry!” Gu Yuanli said softly. He did not feel good about this as well. “Pa, it is all my fault. Punish me. No matter what, I will accept it.”
Second Old Master Gu could not help but kick him hard. Gu Yuanli fell forward but got back up and knelt on the putuan.
“Do you think you can write everything off with such an apology?” Second Old Master Gu said in anger. “Do you think that I would believe all your lies? Continue lying. Don’t you have a single line of truth in your words? I asked you. How did you know of Qianshu’s identity? How much do you exactly know about the car accident back then?”
That year, Gu Yuanli was just a child.
A child was not capable of doing much.
He did not cause Fangfang’s car accident.
But it did not mean that he had no idea about the things going on.
“Pa, I wanted to avenge Mom. I investigated the matters from that time, and I found some traces of hints. That was how I found out that Sister isn’t dead,” Gu Yuanli said. “Everything I said is the truth. If anything I said today is untrue, I will be struck by lightning!”
“Are you even afraid of being struck by lightning?”
Second Old Master Gu was mad. He folded his arms and left.
Gu Yuanli felt a piercing pain in his eyes.
I’m so sorry, Pa.
Big Brother, I’m so sorry!
There were some things that he can never say even if it meant death.
That would be a crime!
At least, Pa had not kicked him out of the house, and he still acknowledged him as his son.
Shen Qianshu spoke to Fang Hongxiu for a while and left the bedroom. Second Old Master Gu was sitting by the water-lily pond on the first floor. He looked at the water lilies silently, and no one knew what he was thinking about. Shen Qianshu went downstairs and stood beside him.
She wanted to leave already.
Master had never been able to recuperate well after being injured.
She wanted to bring Master back to Rose Castle to rest.
“Second Old Master…”
Second Old Master Gu turned around and looked at her lovingly.
“Come over. Look, it’s your Mom’s favorite water lilies.”
“They’re really beautiful. Movie King Gu gifted Tong Hua one of these once. They’re really beautiful,” Shen Qianshu said softly. Tong Hua really liked the water lily. He kept it for a long time, and when it wilted, he was really sad.
“Did he like it?”
“He does.” Speaking of Tong Hua, Shen Qianshu’s eyes lit up brightly. “He likes anything that’s pretty.”
Shen Qianshu said softly, “It’s time for me to go.”
Second Old Master Gu suddenly regained his senses. “This is your home. Where are you going?”
Shen Qianshu said, “I…”
“Don’t go. Move into the manor with Tong Hua, and let Pa take care of the both of you. Pa had missed out on watching you grow. I had missed out on so many years. I don’t want to be separated from the two of you again. Your mother wishes to see you every day as well,” Second Old Master Gu said anxiously.
He was feeling really conflicted.
Is his daughter not going to acknowledge him as her father?
“Second Old Master, Ye Ling and I are… dating.” Shen Qianshu looked up, and she looked determined. Her eyes were soft and clear. “I do not wish to hide this from you, and neither do I want to say anything against my conscience. I’m afraid… you might not be able to accept that.”
