Chapter 211 Staying overnight
But those who could come into contact with him in the imperial capital weren’t the lower class people, but surprisingly many of them had no idea who Mu Xuan Qing was or even know of the Mu family’s existence.
And most of those who knew about the existence of the Mu family only knew about the two brothers, Mu Xuan Lin and Mu Xuan Yang. This even made Gu Wen Qiang wonder if his daughter’s boyfriend was Mu Xuan Lin or Mu Xuan Yang, after all, these two were indeed powerful and wealthy. Most of all, they were in line with his initial suspicions, already married.
That was why her boyfriend didn’t dare show his face and didn’t quite dare to come to see him.
But when he actually met Mu Xuan Qing, Gu Wen Qiang froze.
He hadn’t expected Mu Xuan Qing to be so young, let alone so handsome, calm, and imposing.
This made even he, who had been in the business world for over twenty years feel that his aura was being suppressed.
However after freezing for a moment, he offered his hand, “Hello, I’m Qing Yu’s father, Gu Wen Qiang!”
The look in Mu Xuan Qing’s eyes deepened as he stared at Gu Wen Qiang’s hand for a long moment before extending his hand to shake it.
“Hello. Mu Xuan Qing.”
Mu Xuan Qing?! This name……
He was really a member of the Mu family?
From the Xuan generation, then it meant his brothers were the head of the Mu family, Mu Xuan Lin and Mu Xuan Yang, however, he hadn’t heard that the Mu family had three brothers……
Could it be, he was an illegitimate son or something?
Gu Wen Qiang thought to himself, and without the expression on his face changing, invited Mu Xuan Qing into the house and made tea himself.
Whether he was an illegitimate son or not, the kind of suppression and aura Mu Xuan Qing was exuding was definitely not something that ordinary people could have, moreover it wasn’t in the least bit inferior to the two Mu brothers….
Gu Wen Qiang probed Mu Xuan Qing for information while drinking tea with him, but Mu Xuan Qing said very little and answered his questions quite euphemistically. For example, when he asked Mu Xuan Qing what he did, his only response was that he was a small businessman.
However, he made no mention of the nature of the business or its size.
While Gu Wen Qiang was wondering if he had made a mistake and that this Mu Xuan Qing was just a young man who could pretend, Chen Ran gave him a gift on Mu Xuan Qing’s behalf. A high-priced bottle of wine, top-quality tea that was rumoured to be available only to the elite few, and an antique vase…….
Gu Wen Qiang’s expression changed when he saw the antique vase. He’d seen this vase at an auction before, where it had fetched a whopping seven figures.
Anyone who could easily give away something of such high value that couldn’t be purchased with money was clearly not an ordinary person!
Gu Wen Qiang’s attitude towards Mu Xuan Qing suddenly became even more enthusiastic.
After dinner, it started raining heavily outside, so Gu Wen Qiang offered, “Why don’t you spend the night here? We have plenty of rooms anyway.”
Mu Xuan Qing nodded. He was leaving S City tomorrow to go back to the imperial capital, so he might not be able to see her…… for almost another month, so it would be good to spend one more night together.
Gu Wen Qiang thoughtfully arranged Mu Xuan Qing’s room next door to Gu Qing Yu’s room, but she didn’t think anything of it. After all, it hadn’t been a day or two that this father of hers had used her as a tool in exchange for benefits. Although he may not have figured out Mu Xuan Qing’s identity for now, Mu Xuan Qing in order to let her not be bothered by Gu Wen Qiang in the next while, or arrange for her to go on blind dates or something else, had given gifts that had a lot of value.
With Gu Wen Qiang’s sense of judgement, he would definitely see how much those things were worth, and so would naturally think highly of Mu Xuan Qing.
Oh, although with Gu Wen Qiang’s imagination, even if he thought highly of a person or thing, it actually meant he didn’t think that much higher as he didn’t have the ability.
“Sir~ Good night.”
Looking at Mu Xuan Qing with a smile, Gu Qing Yu said goodnight to him sweetly.
