Chapter 20: Are You Her Boyfriend? (3)
Gu Yuanyuan had only shown her shoulders; it was nothing.
But he wasn’t happy.
If he knew this would’ve happened, then he would definitely have been there. He could not tell what method Shu Ran had used to trick the little girl.
Just wait until he comes back!
Old Master Shu celebrated his birthday, and many celebrities arrived to congratulate him. The Shu family knew about Shu Ran’s return, but they didn’t know when he would arrive.
“When will Ran-ran arrive?” Old Master Shu’s eagerness could be seen while he was receiving guests, accompanied by Shu Ran’s sister-in-law, Yu Wei.
“Grandpa, I think Little Ran will be back soon,” Yu Wei mulled. “Sit down, otherwise Xiao Ran will blame me when he comes back to see you.”
Old Master Shu sat down obediently and told her kindly, “You don’t have to stay with me. Go play with the other young ladies.”
As his words fell, the noisy crowd in front suddenly calmed down, and after a few seconds, the crowd spread.
“Grandpa.” Shu Ran was leading Gu Yuanyuan closer.
These two people became the center of attention, but most people’s eyes were not placed on Shu Ran, but rather on Gu Yuanyuan, their minds filled with consternation.
Old Master Shu sat down, stood up again, grabbed his hand, and looked up and down excitedly. “Look how thin you’ve become. Is filming particularly tiring, and…”
Suddenly, he saw Gu Yuanyuan, and the old man’s voice no longer sounded as he saw Gu Yuanyuan’s arm linked with Shu Ran’s. Having never seen Shu Ran bring a girl back, he immediately smiled from ear to ear.
“Hello, Grandpa. My name is Gu Yuanyuan.” Gu Yuanyuan sent a gift prepared by Shu Ran. “May I wish your happiness be as immense as the East Sea and live as long as the Zhongnan Mountains!”
The girl’s voice was thin and crisp. Also, the surrounding area was currently very quiet because of Shu Ran’s return, and so her voice spread far and wide.
“Good, good, good.” Old Master Shu felt very happy.
He took Gu Yuanyuan and kept talking. When Shu Ran’s parents heard that their younger son had returned with a girl, they all came to see what was going on; however, the Old Master took Gu Yuanyuan and did not let go.
So Madam Shu asked Yu Wei, who was also at a loss. She looked at the girl next to her mother, and there was a flash of unhappiness in her eyes. That was her mother’s friend’s daughter, Xia Zhixin. She knew that her mother-in-law had always wanted to arrange a marriage between Xia Zhixin and Shu Ran.
However, more than once had she seen Xia Zhixin looking for an opportunity to approach Shu Ang (Shu Ran’s older brother), so she smiled and said, “Mom, it’s good that Xiao Ran brought a girl back. Aren’t you always worrying about what bad values he might learn in the entertainment industry?”
Madam Shu frowned. “I’m afraid that what he brought back is a shady fox woman.”
Yu Wei: “…”
She did think the girl looked good, but since she was talking to her mother-in-law, she could only keep silent.
Xia Zhixin looked forward to meeting Gu Yuanyuan and said, “Auntie, I’ll test her for you later.”
Madam Shu patted her hand, thought about it, and said, “Well, lest your brother Shu Ran be cheated on.”
Yu Wei wanted to say something, but in the end, she finally sighed and said nothing.
Fortunately, Old Master Shu had just recovered from a serious illness and was in poor health. Seeing that his favorite grandson had returned with his girlfriend, he was satisfied. He felt a bit weak, so he was soon persuaded to return to his room to rest.
Gu Yuanyuan was finally released, and Shu Ran wanted to take her to see his friend. Gu Yuanyuan gestured with her hand. “We agreed before: I’m just here to help you make your grandpa happy. Not to deal with your relatives and friends.”
She hurried to find food; she was so hungry that her body was protesting for her to fill her stomach.
Watching her was like staring at a fish in the sea as she ran in a zigzag pattern and soon disappeared.
Shu Ran: “…”
It was known that Gu Yuanyuan was brought back by Shu Ran. Those who were aware of this wouldn’t come forward, but for others, all they saw was her beauty and walked over to chat with her over wine.
“I don’t know if I can have the honor of inviting this beautiful lady for a drink?”
