Chapter 50 You’re just going to give up like that?
“The Duan family has already arranged blind dates for Xing Yuan.” Elder Duan said.
Gu Qing Yu was silent for a few seconds, then, “I understand.”
She stood up, but just as she wanted to leave, Elder Duan raised his eyebrows, “What do you understand?”
“Naturally, I understand why you asked me to come over.” Gu Qing Yu stopped and looked at him, smiling lightly, “Don’t worry, Old Master, I’ll draw a clear line with Duan Xing Yuan from today onwards, officially breaking off my engagement, and, in the future, even if he comes looking for me, I won’t have anything to do with him. But I can’t control when he comes to me, so now that you’ve made your decision, remember to discipline your good grandson in the future.”
The words ‘good grandson’ were particularly sarcastic.
Elder Duan hadn’t expected her to react like this. He had expected her to cry and beg him not to separate the two of them, or to leave in anger to find Duan Xing Yuan, but he hadn’t expected her to announce the breaking off of the engagement so simply, without even the slightest intention of opposing it.
“You’re just going to give up like that?” Elder Duan narrowed his eyes.
“Why, if I don’t give up, will you agree to the both of us getting married?” Gu Qing Yu also raised her eyebrows.
“No. But my grandson has done a lot for you over the years. Aren’t you moved at all, aren’t you going to put up a fight, you’re just giving up so easily?” The old man was really dissatisfied and unable to understand.
His grandson was the best man this girl from the Gu family was ever going to get, moreover he had been so infatuated with her, shouldn’t she be loath to part with and unwilling to let go of his grandson?
“Old master you’re really contradictory. Do you want me to fight for him, or do you not want me to fight for him?” Gu Qing Yu asked mockingly, “Or, does old master intend to let me, for what Duan Xing Yuan has done in the past few years stay by his side, without a name and without a title in the future, as his mistress?”
Elder Duan was immediately rendered speechless.
Gu Qing Yu didn’t have the intention of stopping, “Besides, what has Duan Xing Yuan done for me? Romantic dates and expensive gifts? I don’t like expensive things, I prefer thoughtful gifts, so most of the gifts he has given me aren’t very valuable. On the contrary, the ones I’ve given him are probably more expensive and thoughtful. Most of the favours he gave went to my father, which I didn’t receive.”
“I got quite a few things from him… my ruined reputation and a broken leg… oh it’s better now, but I still have some problems walking. I also got more hatred from my half-sister and stepmother and I was almost married off to Africa by my father…. all of this, was because of Duan Xing Yuan.”
“You’re twisting words and forcing logic, these things weren’t even caused by Xing Yuan…” Elder Duan somewhat disagreed with her words.
“True, on the surface, he appears to be completely innocent. But if it hadn’t been for him, none of these things would have happened to me at all, would it?”
Elder Duan was instantly unable to refute again. Even he had to admit that with his grandson, it was true that Gu Qing Yu didn’t get anything substantial out of being with him, other than the happiness of being in love.
However, it was also true that his grandson had sacrificed a lot for her, but she couldn’t be blamed for that, as they were all voluntary on Duan Xing Yuan’s part.
“I thought I could become the Young Madam of the Duan family, then at least the losses I suffered during these years with Duan Xing Yuan would have been worth it…”
