Chapter 76 Wildflowers outside smelled better
Nothing would have gone wrong with Gu Qing Yu’s marriage.
But now that this had happened, even if Gu Wen Qiang hated it, there was nothing he could do about it.
At the moment, Duan Xing Yuan had no intention of giving up his daughter.
Duan Xing Yuan had been sincere with him. He knew that if he wanted to inherit the Duan family, he couldn’t disobey his grandfather’s orders, hence he was destined to not marry Gu Qing Yu. But at the same time, he promised him that he would cooperate more with the Gu Company, and that although he and Qing Yu couldn’t be a couple, they could be friends…
Friends? Gu Wen Qiang naturally knew exactly what Duan Xing Yuan meant.
He didn’t want a friend, he wanted a mistress, right?
After his initial anger and regret, Gu Wen Qiang thought about it and decided that it wasn’t such a bad thing.
After all, he was a man too, so he knew all too well….
Because no matter how beautiful a woman was, a man would get bored after a few years of having her.
At that time, it would be the wildflowers outside that smelled better.
And to be able to make his daughter the unavailable red rose in Duan Xing Yuan’s heart, causing him to always feel indebted to her and always having her in his heart… wouldn’t that be better?
Hence, he acquiesced to Duan Xing Yuan’s ‘suggestion’.
“Your engagement to Xing Yuan… if it’s dissolved then that’s that.” He told Gu Qing Yu.
Gu Qing Yu raised her eyebrows in surprise. She thought he would be very angry, or immediately arrange for her to go on a blind date with someone else, or perhaps not even go on a blind date, he would arrange for her to meet someone else.
“But he had no choice but to do it so don’t blame him. Even if you can’t be a married couple, you can still be friends.” Gu Wen Qiang added.
Gu Qing Yu sneered in her heart. Sure enough, how could Gu Wen Qiang have agreed so easily…
Duan Xing Yuan… must have probably promised him a lot of favors, right…
“No, I don’t want to contact him.” Gu Qing Yu whispered softly.
At these words, Gu Wen Qiang frowned, “Qing Yu, it’s not Xing Yuan’s fault…”
“I know, that’s why I don’t blame him anymore, but I don’t want to see him!” She looked up, her eyes already red, “Dad, if he really loved me, why didn’t he fight for me?”
Trying to suppress the irritation he felt inside, Gu Wen Qiang tried to advise her calmly, “How should he fight for you? It’s his grandfather and out of filial piety, he can’t be quarrel with him… besides, aren’t you worried that if he insists on marrying you, the Duan family would kick him out? If that happens, he’d have nothing left!”
“I’d love him even if he had nothing!” Gu Qing Yu played the role of a lovesick girl who cried hysterically because of love and watching Gu Wen Qiang’s face twist because of her words, but still having to play the role of a loving father, she suddenly thought to herself that her acting skills must have been inherited.
With his acting skills, he could become a movie star in the entertainment industry!
“But, I can’t!” Gu Wen Qiang took a deep breath then said, “If he has nothing left, you will only suffer with him. Qing Yu, dad can’t bear the thought of you suffering…”
A trace of mockery flashed in Gu Qing Yu’s eyes, but it disappeared quickly and with tears in her eyes, she said, “But dad is still around. If he doesn’t have anything left, won’t everything be okay if you just place him in the Gu Company? With you, we won’t suffer…”
Her words caused a fury of blue veins to pop up on Gu Wen Qiang’s forehead, his face twisting into a grimace.
What sort of terrible idea was that? How could they leave the Gu family’s business to outsiders!
He should allow Duan Xing Yuan into his company? Then at that time the Gu Company’s name might be ‘Duan’!
