Chapter 20: Are You Her Boyfriend? (1)
“Don’t be surprised; this is his style. Rest assured that if you pretend to be my girlfriend and go to my house, then you can accept gifts from whoever gives them to you,” Shu Ran picked up the gift box and said. “Hand it over, and I’ll put it on you.”
He put the bracelet on the young girl’s slender and delicate wrist. For a moment, he could not tell whether the bracelet was beautiful because of her wrist or because the bracelet itself was too gorgeous.
Shu Ran felt immensely satisfied. He imagined that everyone would become stunned when he and Gu Yuanyuan arrived at his house, so he was looking forward to it.
Two hours later, after getting off the private plane, Gu Yuanyuan was taken by Shu Ran to a relatively remote area. As Gu Yuanyuan looked around, she thought, “Is Shu’s family living in this kind of place?”
At a glance, Shu Ran could tell what she was thinking. “Don’t think about it too much. I will take you somewhere where you can change your clothes and have a makeover.”
Gu Yuanyuan frowned. “Isn’t this troublesome?”
“You think this is a problem?” Shu Ran couldn’t believe it. “No matter how beautiful a girl looks, if she doesn’t dress up, then the value of her face will drop. Impression. Do you know what impression is? “
Gu Yuanyuan could only nod. All right. She’ll do whatever he says.
She needed to appear beautiful, anyway.
There was a store at the end of the alley, and the owner, Zhu Ya, was a very famous costume designer.
Seeing Shu Ran enter, Zhu Ya was surprised. “Such a rare guest. I thought you were kidding when you said you were coming.”
Shu Ran hugged her and displayed his gentlemanly demeanor. “I never joke with beautiful women.”
“You’re still such a flatterer,” Zhu Ya said angrily. Women of any age naturally loved to hear beautiful words and be praised by others.
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
What’s their relationship? She began to regret agreeing to help Shu Ran.
Zhu Ya covered her lips with a charming smile. Then, she looked toward Gu Yuanyuan, and her eyes brightened. She pushed Shu Ran away before she walked toward Gu Yuanyuan and said, “I haven’t seen such a beautiful girl in such a long time. Her face is so delicate that it looks like it can break at any moment.”
While talking, she began to pinch Gu Yuanyuan’s face, causing Gu Yuanyuan to step back and feel goosebumps on her hand.
Zhu Ya immediately laughed at Gu Yuanyuan’s reaction and smiled. Gu Yuanyuan realized that Zhu Ya couldn’t be young, for when she laughed, the wrinkles around her eyes were obvious.
“What an adorable little girl. Where did you kidnap her from?” Zhu Ya asked.
“Don’t bully my little baby,” Shu Ran grabbed Gu Yuanyuan’s shoulder and said. “Hurry up and take off your clothes. We’re in a hurry.”
Zhu Ya pointed at Gu Yuanyuan, winked, and turned back to the inner room.
Gu Yuanyuan saw that Shu Ran and the shop owner were getting along as if they were flirting. Although the shop owner looked much older than Shu Ran, during these times it was not uncommon for women to be older than men.
In addition, the shop owner had her own attractive characteristics that made her charming but not seductive.
“Xiao Ran.” Gu Yuanyuan pulled Shu Ran’s hand off her shoulder. She was only pretending to be his girlfriend, so she didn’t want to be misunderstood. “You and the shop owner…”
Shu Ran suddenly approached her with his despicable, handsome face. “Are you jealous?”
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
“Come and choose your outfit.” Zhu Ya revealed a row of formal clothes. Gu Yuanyuan walked over and listened to Shu Ran talking. “Auntie, this is your future nephew’s daughter-in-law. Can you help her choose something?”
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
Zhu Ya stared at him unhappily. “I told you not to call me an auntie; I’m still young, and I’m not that old!”
On second thought, she became delighted as she looked at Gu Yuanyuan. The more she stared at her, the more satisfied she was.
“Don’t worry about that boy. Come and pick the ones you like.”
After her identity was exposed, Zhu Ya did not hide anything. She became very enthusiastic about Gu Yuanyuan becoming her daughter-in-law.
Then, from her aunt’s mouth, Gu Yuanyuan learned a lot about the Shu family. Shu Ran had two older brothers. The eldest brother had a family, and the second brother had a fiancee. Only Shu Ran, who was in his early 30s, was still alone.
Therefore, the Shu family was anxious after finding out that the entertainment circle had a very complex situation and a bad environment. They were worried that Shu Ran would stay in the entertainment industry for a long time and pick up bad values. For example, it would be a devastating disaster if he stopped liking women and started to like men.
This is why the Shu Family was eager to set up an arranged marriage for Shu Ran.
As a famous designer, Zhu Ya had extensive connections and was more open-minded, but she still hoped that her nephew would fall in love in the normal way.
Now, her nephew had finally brought a girl home. Zhu Ya felt relief and viewed Gu Yuanyuan as family. During their conversation, she efficiently picked clothes and makeup for Gu Yuanyuan.
When Gu Yuanyuan exited the inner room, Zhu Ya and Shu Ran, who were talking, instantly became silent.
Gu Yuanyuan wore a knee-length light red dress, exposing a small and delicate collarbone. Her long hair was hanging down loosely, and a few strands of her hair fell gently onto her snow-white shoulder.
The material of the red dress was very special. It was as smooth as silk and fit tightly on her skin. It outlined her petite figure, which made her slim waist appear as if someone could hold it with only one hand. Under the skirt, her legs appeared white, well-proportioned, and paired well with the white boots – which made it difficult for them to look away.
Seeing Zhu Ya and Shu Ran silently staring at her, Gu Yuanyuan looked down at her dress and then back at them. “Do I look okay?”
