Chapter 49 Besides, maybe with this trip, you won’t have to come back
Gu Qing Yu…
That girl’s influence on his grandson was getting bigger and bigger, making him very unhappy…
Moreover, how could their Duan family’s great-grandson be an illegitimate child?
Elder Duan thought for a while then made a call to S City.
On the other end, when Gu Qing Yu received the call from Elder Duan, she raised an eyebrow.
Elder Duan wanted to see her?
Why would she make a special trip to the imperial capital to meet an old man who she would soon have no relationship with? Moreover, from what she could hear on the phone, his tone wasn’t particularly cordial either. He didn’t sound like the same Elder Duan the original owner had met earlier during the engagement.
She didn’t quite want to go, but Gu Wen Qiang insisted.
“Qing Yu, if the elders want to see you, you should go and meet them. Elder Duan is old, you can’t ask him to come over here, right? Besides, maybe with this trip, you won’t have to come back. The Duan family’s wedding is definitely going to be held in the imperial capital.”
Gu Wen Qiang couldn’t wait for Gu Qing Yu to marry Duan Xing Yuan so that the bit of Gu Company’s reputation that had been tainted by Mrs. Gu and Gu Qing Chen would disappear instantly, making everyone would selectively forget about that incident, because the Gu family that had climbed up through the Duan family would no longer be the original Gu family.
Gu Qing Yu looked at his impatient expression and chuckled softly. Gu Wen Qiang probably wouldn’t be able to guess that his expectations would soon be dashed.
“Alright. Dad, since you are the one asking, I’ll go.” She nodded.
It wasn’t that she was really being obedient, but it suddenly occurred to her that Mu Xuan Qing…
Seemed to be in the imperial capital as well…
The moment she thought of him, Gu Qing Yu gulped involuntarily…..
Gu Wen Qiang stood up hurriedly, not noticing her expression, “You can’t go empty handed, dad will prepare gifts for you. Elder Duan likes to play chess most, you know how to play chess, don’t you? I had someone order a chess board made of ink jade earlier, bring it over to him, also, Madam Duan likes to collect limited edition bags, so I ordered hundred limited edition bags from around the world, she’ll definitely love it…”
Gu Qing Yu watched him perform, his words going in through her left ear in and coming out the right, she didn’t take it seriously.
The next day, she arrived at the Duan family’s house.
Gu Qing Yu discovered that Duan Xing Yuan wasn’t around. It seemed that Elder Duan had sought her over without Duan Xing Yuan’s knowledge.
To ask her to meet him alone meant that there was absolutely no way he was willing to let her marry into the Duan family. It seemed Gu Wen Qiang was destined to be disappointed. Oh, not right, even if Elder Duan agreed, Gu Wen Qiang was still going to be disappointed.
Elder Duan examined the young woman in front of him. He had only met her once before, on the day she got engaged to his grandson two years ago. At that time, he had only thought that this was a stunningly beautiful and simple woman who was easy to control, enough to be their Duan family’s daughter-in-law, but now…
He looked at the woman in front of him who didn’t look nervous to see him at all, who didn’t even ask a question like, ‘where is Duan Xing Yuan’ and pondered carefully…
This woman seemed a little more mature than she was two years ago, and she had also become more intelligent and perceptive.
The old man poured her a cup of tea and went straight to the point, “Xing Yuan told me yesterday that he wanted to marry you. What do you think?”
Gu Qing Yu laughed, “It doesn’t matter what I think, what’s important is, what you think.”
Elder Duan raised his eyebrows. It seemed that she had really changed and become smarter. Being smart wasn’t a bad thing, but he couldn’t help but worry that she would become uncontrollable now that she had become so smart.
