Chapter 97: I Am Also Attracted by Looks (3)
Guo Jingyan was frightened in her heart. She knew that once this matter was exposed, countless people would die because of this and their family’s reputation would be ruined.
“You’re such a fool. What happens now? What should we do?”
“Since it has already happened, I can only hang myself.” Gongsun Yu was pale white and there was no blood in her face. She gradually sat up straight and raised her neck, saying, “I only hate how this world is so cruel and ruthless to women. Men can have multiple concubines and choose who they love, but women have no choice but to marry and follow their husbands.”
She looked at Zhou Xiaoxiao and said, “Sister-in-law, I know you must be looking at me in disdain, but you need to know that I am very jealous of you. You are so lucky to be able to meet my cousin and be married to him. You guys can get through any hardships with one another, becoming a couple that everyone is jealous of. But in this world, this is incredibly difficult to find.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao slowly said, “I originally thought that I can treat you as my best friend since we have similar hobbies and personalities. But now, I am going to look at you in disdain because you are bullied by him, but instead of finding a rope and strangling that guard, you want to commit suicide. Do you think that’s fair to your parents or us, who treated you like sisters?”
Gongsun Yu finally collapsed and hugged Zhou Xiaoxiao, crying out loud.
Gongsun Yu’s mother who had heard that State Duke Residence’s fifth young lady had rushed into her daughter’s room angrily was scared that she might brood over past events and bully her daughter. Therefore, she hurriedly led a group of maids into her daughter’s room, only to see her daughter hugging the famous fifth young lady and sobbing out loud.
Zhou Xiaoxiao patted Gongsun Yu who was gasping for breath from all the crying and said, “Fourth sister-in-law and I promise that we won’t tell anyone else about it. You don’t need to be afraid, but you need to let your mother know since she’s the one person who genuinely places you over everything.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao and Guo Jingyan left Gongsun residence and looked at each other, sighing.
Guo Jingyan clutched her chest and said, “I would’ve never thought that this could happen to her. If her father, that old-fashioned man, finds out, he would definitely capture the two of them and drown them in a wicker basket.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao said, “As outsiders, we can’t do anything about it. We can only hope that Yu’er’s mother can handle this appropriately, so that Yu’er can get over this crisis soon.”
In the evening, it was clear that Zhou Xiaoxiao wasn’t in a good mood.
Yu Xingzhi quickly detected this and thought of numerous ways to cheer her up, all failing in the end.
“What’s the matter with lady today? Is there something annoying you? Why not tell this husband about it?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao held onto Yu Xingzhi’s arms and leaned her head against his shoulders.
She enjoyed the warmth on his body.
Maybe she didn’t need to rely on anyone in a materialistic way, but she was very happy that he was there to support her psychologically.
It’s a wonderful feeling to have someone besides her side when she was feeling weak.
Zhou Xiaoxiao felt horrible in her heart. Towards Gongsun Yu, she was infuriated at what happened to her, but she also pitied her.
She touched Yu Xingzhi’s handsome face and thought: what right do I have to scold Yu’er? I am also attracted by looks.
How lucky was she to have met such a handsome man who was also not a slag?
She recalled her past life. Wasn’t it because she only cared about appearances that she accidentally found a perverted slag and ended up dying because of him?
She wondered how the world there was like. Her parents and friends were probably upset because of her.
Seeing how Zhou Xiaoxiao became more and more upset and was even able to cry, Yu Xingzhi panicked.
“Xiaoxiao, what’s the matter? Just tell me whatever you want, and I will do it for you. You don’t need to act this way.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao faintly looked at him and asked, “You’ll do whatever I want you to do?”
“I won’t hesitate to.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao smiled mischievously and whispered in his eyes, “I want you to…reveal yourself.”
Yu Xingzhi’s face turned red and he suddenly stood up, about to turn around and leave.
Zhou Xiaoxiao sobbed, saying, “And you said you’ll agree to whatever I want? You’re just bluffing. Although I’m in this luxurious residence, what a pity that I’m just by myself and not with my family. No one even cares about me. Why should I be here anymore? I really miss home and I want to go back to visit my parents.”
Yu Xingzhi paused and slowly turned around.
After a while, he turned around and gradually raised his slender fingers, unbuttoning his shirt and revealing his smooth white skin.
