Chapter 223 Aunt?
“Boss Gu, you’re a difficult person to get in touch with…. Do you know how many times I’ve tried calling you these past few days?” Shen Ruiyi was incredibly excited. First because of the movie, he didn’t expect his first fully owned movie since he came to LILA to do so well. It had only been a week and their company had already recouped their initial investment in the movie; the rest of the box office was basically profit!
He was ecstatic, but he knew that aside from the great performances of the two leads and the screenwriter’s script, the main reason for [The Summit’s] success was that Fei Fei Studio’s special effects were really too good!
That was why he couldn’t wait to meet Gu Qing Yu, who, in his opinion, was his partner. What’s more they would probably be working together for many more years to come.
And the other reason was….
Shen Ruiyi remembered the call he had received earlier…..
His eyes flashing, he looked at Gu Qing Yu and asked, “That…. Qing Yu, your mother, what’s her name?”
Gu Qing Yu raised an eyebrow. Why was he asking about her mother?
Seeing her confusion, Shen Ruiyi explained, “My dad saw our picture together in my friend circle earlier and he was very excited, saying….. you look….. like very much like his sister, my aunt, who disappeared after she ran away from home.”
Gu Qing Yu’s eyes narrowed. The original owner’s mother had run away from home back then? And she didn’t go home again after that?
It made sense, because she remembered that the original owner was very young when her mother died, and that it had been more than ten years since she had died. It wasn’t that she hadn’t contacted her family again because she had disappeared, but that she was dead that was why she had no contact with her family.
However, if she was from Shen Ruiyi’s family, it meant that the original owner’s mother’s family also had some power, so if they had really wanted to find her, how could they not have found her for more than twenty years?
Gu Qing Yu smiled, ” Shen Qingyan. My mother’s name is Shen Qingyan .”
At those three words, Shen Ruiyi was a little disappointed, “I don’t think that’s my aunt’s name ……”
Gu Qing Yu was very calm.
However Shen Ruiyi couldn’t just let it go, “No, your mum must look a lot like my aunt, her last name is also Shen. Perhaps she simply changed her name, but we’ll know once we meet! Qing Yu, my dad came to S City a few days ago and he wants to meet your mum. Can you ask your mum if she wants to meet him ……”
Gu Qing Yu narrowed her eyes, ” Shen Ruiyi , I am quite famous, so it can’t be that you aren’t able to find out that my father is now divorced and my previous stepmother has gone to jail before, right?”
Shen Ruiyi froze. He had been buoyed by the excitement of the movie’s success for the past few days, and had assumed that his father was simply overthinking the fact that his aunt, who had been missing for twenty years with no news resembled Gu Qing Yu, so he hadn’t looked into it, but his dad should have…. These days his dad wasn’t as excited when he asked him to meet Gu Qing Yu and her mother as he had been at the beginning when he had just returned to C Country so…. could it be that he had discovered something?
Gu Qing Yu told him calmly, “My mother has been dead for more than ten years.”
Shen Ruiyi’s emotions were a little complicated.
Gu Qing Yu smiled a little, “There’s no need to apologize, I’m not sad.”
After all, it was the original owner’s mother, so only the original owner would be sad. What’s more both the original owner and her mother had left this world.
“I hope my mother isn’t your aunt, otherwise, your father might be very sad.” Gu Qing Yu smiled a little.
