Chapter 8: What Did You Just Called Me?(2)
Besides, she’ still a minor, and furthermore, she’s not that stupid. What would happen to a little girl if she ran away from her home all alone?
It’s either she had an unavoidable reason to run away from home, or she was forced to leave. Regarding which way, she smiled at the mother and daughter pair in front of her. “Aunt Chen, when did you became my mother?”
In her heart, she didn’t mind the sudden appearance of these people either, since it may help her trigger the memories in her mind. Right now, she doesn’t have an ID, and she was also a burden to others. After all, she needed to find out who exactly she was so that in the future, it would be more convenient for her to take action.
Moreover, she can’t just do nothing and always depend on her sons to support her.
Chen Yun’s face was kind of listless, and at the same time, she was a little bit embarrassed. Though, it soon faded and returned to normal demeanor. She said, “Xiao Jiu, you wouldn’t treat me as your mother, but I …”
Perhaps she realized that there were still other people in the room, so she held back her tongue and swallowed back the rest of her words. She shifted her eyes at Gu Yizhou, and then to Lin Shaosi, who sitting with his crossed legs while wearing his sunglasses and mask on his face, obviously showing a vibe that it’s not good to mess up with him.
Although Gu Yizhou was expressionless, aloof, and doesn’t look friendly, she could only choose him. She motioned to wipe her tears away and said, “You two must be Xiao Jiu’s friends. During the time she was alone, I’m sure that both of you took care of her. So on behalf of his father, I would like to thank you for your kindness.”
There was nothing wrong at the first words she said, but she pointed out that Gu Yuanyuan was alone, and there were two young men that took care of her, which were Gu Yizhou and Lin Shaosi. If these words were heard by other people, it was inevitable that they would think more about it. A beautiful young woman together with two men inside a high-class restaurant. What kind of situation was this?
Gu Yizhou didn’t even know the underlying implication that’s hidden in her words as he just maintained his usual indifferent expression. He only glanced at Chen Yun very briefly before he turned his eyes back to Gu Yuanyuan.
(e/n: 言外之意 >> Chinese idiom that translates: ‘the meaning behind the words’ )
“… Uhm. She’s my dad’s little mistress, and that woman beside her is their cheap daughter.” Before, Gu Yuanyuan even dared to fight back those big villains that passed through in her previous life. So, towards these mother and daughter pair in front of her, who absolutely didn’t see her as a friend or a family, she must also not be polite in facing them.
In short, she didn’t want to have a connection with these people.
Gu Yizhou’s eyes showed a glint for a moment, but it didn’t reveal any of his emotions or thoughts.
This is other people’s family matters, so it’s only logical for him to not poke his nose to where it doesn’t belong. In his childhood memories, his mother never mentioned anything about her family members.
In his childhood memories, it seemed that he only remembered that their mother was the only one that raised him and his brothers when they were young.
However, as he thought about this, he’s mind went up and down from all the doubts he held deep in his heart. Then he asked, “Do you want to go home with them?”
Cheng Man’an said, “Xiao Jiu, come home with us now. You can’t always trouble your friends and keep bothering them.”
Although she her words were meant for Gu Yuanyuan, she didn’t look at her. Instead, her eyes were only focused on Gu Yizhou, thinking that this person might be an extraordinary man. It’s just that, she didn’t know who he was.
Then on the corner of her eyes, she swift a glance at Lin Shaosi again. She could perceive that this person has a strong sense of existence, which makes people to dare not looked him directly in his eyes. And somehow, she also felt that he was a little bit familiar.
She remembered that in her past life, Gu Yuanyuan left home and went away for several years without any news of her. And as time passed by, the Cheng Family suffered a major setback that resulted in its bankruptcy. So, in order to make a huge countermeasure and overturn this situation, Cheng Man’an was forced by Cheng Zhenhua, that beast, to sell her body and earn some money for the sake of their family.
Then, when she was in her most desperate situation, someone came to her and offered her a helping hand. However, she didn’t know the person’s face nor his name. All she knew was that he had a grim voice when he asked her, “Are you Gu Yuanyuan’s sister?”
She nodded her head fearfully.
The man said something that made her tremble all over from terror. He said, “Gu Yuanyuan died in my hands, so if you’re her sister, you should better go away now.”
Although he said it with a grim tone, his words broke her free from her nightmares. But even before she could start over again with her life, she unexpectedly died.
Then, in a blink of an eye, she was reborn again and came back. Back to the time when it all started.
