Chapter 4: It Is Time For Mom To Stand Up For Her Sake Of Her Son (1)
For quite some time now, a deafening silence was engulfing the whole car. Fortunately, there was no traffic on the road right at this moment.
Gu Yizhou silently picked up the car key and started the car engine again. He did not speak any word, nor did he have an expression on his face. He was just driving still as though he did not hear any of her previous claims.
Gu Yuanyuan looked at his son’s handsome face. Her heart couldn’t stop drumming loudly inside her chest. She was feeling both anxious and nervous at the same time as she could not tell whether her son would believe her or not. ‘Would he believe it?’
“Gu…” She sounded her voice out, seemingly trying to explain again for the second time.
However, Gu Yizhou beat her to it. “You’re still young so, I can still let it slide. But next time, you should not carelessly make any jokes to someone especially, to a stranger.” He lightly spoke, but his voice was somewhat heavy, clearly couldn’t hide the signs of his evident displeasure.
“It was very impolite.” He added.
“…” Gu Yuanyuan didn’t talk for a while.
He did not believe it. Of course.
Forget it. Anyway, she was not in a hurry. In fact, she can wait because she already knew the plot of the story. Thus, she could certainly determine that Gu Yizhou was her son without a doubt.
In Gu Yizhou’s plight right now, Gu Yuanyuan could easily understand it. Even if it’s her, under normal circumstances, if a young man older than herself suddenly showed up and somehow came to her and told her that he was her son, she would instantly assume that that person’s brain had been squeezed out terribly by a hard object that’s why he was somewhat delusional and crazy, blabbering such nonsense.
Just like the perspectives of the other people, it was only natural that Er Bao would also not believe it.
This kind of thing takes time to resolve.
Moreover, at this moment, if she kept insisting on saying that she was Gu Yuanyuan, aka her mother, she was afraid that she would arouse Erbao’s suspicion and disgust of her. Believing that she deliberately did it on purpose or that she had other intentions.
However, the real problem was, presently, she had nowhere to go.
Even if she already knew the plot, there were also some things that were entirely unknown to her. Like for instance, on how the original owner was captured by Lu Wenchen or where did she formerly live? She didn’t have a sliver of idea about it.
On the corner of his eye, Gu Yizhou saw that Gu Yuanyuan lowered her head and slightly rubbing her eyebrows from her dilemma. When she bowed down her head even more, her long silky black hair cascadingly fell on her face, covering it on the process.
Seeing the girl like that, he was thinking if, by any chance, what he said just now was a little too much for her.
He previously said before that she looked like her mother, but it was very impossible because the girl beside him was obviously young. Maybe, in his heart, this kind of emotion that he felt had no other meaning behind it.
Looking back at her face, as well as the visible bruises on her body, he did not want to meddle on their private matters. Although it may be his decision in the first place, he could still not help but harden his heart when he thought about it.
Gu Yizhou faintly knitted his eyebrows at this uncomfortable feeling. Then, he said: “If there’s no place for you to go, I will take you to the nearest hotel to let you temporarily stay over the night. Also, if you have other difficulties and you need some help, you can directly call the police and seek their help.”
Gu Yuanyuan took out a heap of cash from the pocket of her hospital gown and presented it in front of him to let him see it. “I don’t have an identity card on me, nor do I know where to go. What I have on my body right now was only this money when I swiftly escaped earlier.”
She cleverly used the word ‘escape’ as though she was hinting something.
She speculated that as of now, Erbao should have already known that she was the patient at the hospital who had knocked out her family member. As the word ‘escape’, that she purposely said, could directly explain her difficult situation.
There was not much cash in the drawer. Gu Yuanyuan didn’t even have the time to count it when she ransacked it before. But, she took a quick look at the money and hastily estimated that it was more than a thousand yuan.
“In my current situation right now, it was useless to call the police. And, even if I did so, it will only make the situation even more complicated.” Gu Yuanyuan meekly explained. “If the hotel room was a bit expensive, I’m afraid that I can’t afford it. So, can I ask you to take me to a cheaper hotel?”
