Chapter 21: …Mom? (1)
Gu Yizhou’s hand was too fast. Before Shu Ran realized that he had been punched, he pulled back his hand, lowered his wrist, and said, “Sorry, my hand slipped.”
Shu Ran: “…”
He felt his nose start to itch, and as he scratched it, a red liquid started to flow out.
Gu Yuanyuan hurriedly pulled out the handkerchief from Shu Ran’s chest and handed it to him. Shu Ran took time to look at Gu Yizhou who was looking back at her with indifference.
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
Somehow, she saw a hint of innocence on her Erbao’s indifferent face.
“You dared to hit brother Shu Ran!” Xia Zhixin screamed. Even though she was ignored by Shu Ran, she never ended up leaving him. At this moment, she was about to rush in directly to pull Gu Yuanyuan away.
Since they were in a corner, very few people would probably have noticed, but many people ended up looking at them because of Xia Zhixin’s screams.
Shu Ran was covering his nose. As a film emperor, Shu Ran had the burden of being an idol, so how could he let others see his bloody nose? He said to Xia, “Keep your mouth shut!”
“Brother Shu Ran!” Xia Zhixin was astonished at him. Then she pointed her hand to Gu Yuanyuan. “She instigated another person to hit you, yet you still defend her.”
Gu Yizhou raised his voice slightly. “Miss Xia, it was my fault; my hand accidentally slipped and hit Mr. Shu. I can apologize to Mr. Shu. How can you say that I was being instigated?”
“Do you know the meaning of the word instigate?” He looked deeply at her and could not discern any emotion in her eyes; however, it was this appearance that caused Xia Zhixin’s breath to pause when she looked at him. Frightened, she dared not say anything more.
Gu Yizhou withdrew his eyes and looked at Shu Ran.
Shu Ran: “…”
My nose hurts even more.
“There is nothing for you here.” Shu Ran turned to Xia Zhixin, his intentions clear. “Don’t tell anyone — especially my mother — about what happened just now.”
Xia Zhixin’s eyes turned red as she stamped her feet and ran away.
Without anyone else around, Gu Yuanyuan awkwardly touched her index fingers together and asked carefully, “Does it hurt, Little Ran?”
Shu Ran removed the handkerchief, and the bleeding had stopped. It was definitely impossible to say that he was not angry. After Shu Ran became an idol, his journey had been very successful, and apart from being injured on set, no one dared to attack him directly.
It was literally rubbing his face on the ground all over again.
He couldn’t be angry.
His intuition told him that Gu Yizhou had a deep relationship with Gu Yuanyuan; for the sake of Gu Yuanyuan, he would not fight back.
The atmosphere was eerie and silent, and Gu Yuanyuan couldn’t sit still. She couldn’t figure out why her Erbao suddenly fought Shu Ran, but she couldn’t blame him.
“Drink… Do you want some juice?” Gu Yuanyuan quickly took a glass of orange juice. This incident frightened her out of her body, yet she didn’t feel dizzy at the moment. How sober should she be?
Shu Ran took the glass and drank sullenly. Looking at Gu Yizhou he said, “You are…”
Gu Yizhou extended his hand in a friendly manner. “Gu Yizhou.”
Shu Ran stared at the hand and didn’t want to shake it, but then he suddenly felt a strong feeling.
Shu Ran didn’t understand why this person was so hostile to him.
What was his relationship with Gu Yuanyuan?
His surname is Gu….
Gu Yizhou said politely, “I have been responsible for Old Master Shu’s health.”
Shu Ran remembered that he had several conversations with his Grandfather, who had mentioned a doctor that was skilled in medicine.
“It turned out to be Dr. Gu,” Shu Ran added. “Thank you for taking care of my grandfather’s body.”
Gu Yizhou casually said, “It’s only my duty.”
Seeing how friendly they were, Gu Yuanyuan breathed a sigh of relief and couldn’t help but start laughing.
Thinking about Erbao, she also wondered why he was here. Gu Yuanyuan took the initiative and told Gu Yizhou, “Little Ran is a friend of Little Si, and Grandpa Shu is not in good health. Little Ran came back from the shooting to congratulate him on his birthday. Wanting to surprise him, he asked me to pretend to be his girlfriend.”
Gu Yizhou’s eyes moved slightly, and there was a trace of consternation in them. “…pretending? “
