Chapter 99 I will prepare it myself

Mu Xuan Qing just didn’t know what this naughty little thing wanted…

But he knew it wouldn’t be an expensive painting or drawing kit…

So what should he give her?

For the first time since he was ten years old, Mu Xuan Qing struggled with what to get someone as a gift.

Gu Qing Yu’s eyes lit up, “Then I’ll wait and see~ senior brother, don’t worry, my return gift is ready!”

Bai Xiuqi always went to bed early, so they left before nine o’clock. Mu Xuan Qing watched Gu Qing Yu leave, then Chen Ran instructed Mu Yi and Mu Er to follow her before he walked back to Mu Xuan Qing’s side. “Sir, the meeting gift for Miss Gu is ready.”

He had been sent by Mu Xuan Qing on an errand earlier, hence didn’t know that Sir’s master was so fast. He had only just thought of taking Gu Qing Yu as his disciple, and had directly concluded the master, disciple feast the same night and he, Sir’s most powerful assistant, happened to be absent from the scene, causing him to be unable to prepare a gift for Gu Qing Yu in time. This was too much of a dereliction of duty…..

However when he received Mu Yi’s call, he quickly found a gift that Sir might be satisfied with.

A painting by a famous Ming Dynasty artist worth seven figures.

It was something that many collectors could only dream of. It was a perfect gift and the person who received it would basically be very happy.

But Mu Xuan Qing just stared at the antique painting displayed on the tablet he had sent and lowered his eyes…..

He pursed his lips slightly, not saying anything, but Chen Ran understood what he meant.

“Sir has something else in mind?”

Mu Xuan Qing was silent for a moment before saying, “The meeting gift for her…. I will prepare it myself.”

Chen Ran’s pupils shook in shock. This was the first time he had heard such words in the ten years he had been by Sir’s side!

Over the years, even the birthday gifts for the old man of the Mu family, whom Sir had attached the greatest importance to, had never had such importance attached to it because the subordinates generally understood the old man’s preferences hence the gifts given would be the ones the old man liked and Sir would simply just look at the list of gifts then nod his head.

And after his death two years ago, he didn’t even look at the list of gifts for the others; it was entirely up to they the subordinates.

But now, Sir was saying, that he would prepare the gift for Gu Qing Yu himself?

He was going to prepare it himself?

Except for when he was a child, he had never personally prepared gifts for anyone, right?

Chen Ran was shocked, having a new perception of Gu Qing Yu’s status in Sir’s mind. It seems he had to pay more attention to Miss Gu.

On the other side, Gu Qing Yu, who didn’t know that someone was struggling with what to give her returned to the Gu family’s mansion with her gifts happily, but as soon as she entered the house, she felt that the atmosphere wasn’t right.

Gu Wen Qiang was smoking a cigarette in the living room, waiting for her because it seemed that he knew she would be back today.

“Dad.”

She quickly reverted to the good natured, obedient persona she should have in front of Gu Wen Qiang.

Gu Wen Qiang tapped the cigarette out on the windowsill then looked at her. “Has Xing Yuan contacted you lately?”

“No.”

Gu Qing Yu’s eyes flickered slightly. Indeed, it could only be about Duan Xing Yuan.

Hearing her words, Gu Wen Qiang’s frown deepened, “No phone calls either? What about WeChat?”

“Neither.” Gu Qing Yu lowered her eyes.

“……”

A hint of violence flashed through Gu Wen Qiang’s eyes, on the verge of losing control of his emotions.

Even when Duan Xing Yuan had said that he couldn’t marry Gu Qing Yu, he hadn’t felt the need to worry, because Duan Xing Yuan had promised him– even if he couldn’t marry Gu Qing Yu, she would always be the woman he loved the most, moreover…..
