Chapter 52 – Xiao Hai’s argument with Jiang Yuan
“What do you want to drink?” Jiang Yuan looked towards Gu Hai while smiling.
Gu Hai smugly moved his chin towards the waiter, implying that she could just go.
“I don’t want to drink anything, if you have something to say then just say it right now.”
“It’s like this, I’ve discussed this with your dad already….”
“If you want me to go back then you don’t need to say it.” Gu Hai interrupted Jiang Yuan’s words, his attitude was unyielding, “I can’t live together with both of you.”
“It’s not like that….” Jiang Yuan forced a smile, “You are mistaken, we didn’t even think to force you to live together with us. Our idea is like this: you can go back to your previous home, then your dad and I will move out, this way you don’t have to wander alone by yourself. Living outside is good, but it won’t be as good as your own home, right? Your mother had lived in that house for so many years as well, I believe that you definitely have a deep affection towards that house–“
“When will I go back, how will I go back, does it have anything to do with you?”
Jiang Yuan only looked at Gu Hai quietly for a long time.
“I realized, you’re very similar with my son.”
And then, she suddenly laughed so heartily, attracting glances from the people around them.
“Both of you can really render other people speechless…. Haha…”
Gu Hai didn’t have any expression on his face, he simply glared coldly at Jiang Yuan, until she withdrew her laugh, she began to realize that her joke wasn’t funny. The thing that Gu Hai hates most is when Gu Wei Ting or Jiang Yuan mentioned about another family member in front of him, forcibly lashing upon his mind that his family has been broken since long time ago.
“Don’t misunderstand, I…. hey… I found out that when I look at you, I don’t know what to say. My relationship with my son is also like that, no matter what I say, he always has that hostile attitude. It seems that I lack interaction with the people of your generation, I will learn well, i will try to understand….”
“Are you done yet?”
“Eh?” Jiang Yuan’s words were interrupted again.
Gu Hai stood up, “If you’re already finished, then I’m going back.”
“No, please wait.” Jiang Yuan stood up, “Even if you don’t think of me as your mother, I have already treated you as my son. I hope you can come home soon, if you think I’m an eyesore to you, I can move out temporarily, I’ll wait until you finish your college entrance exam, have your own new life, then I will move back.”
“You’re ridiculous.” Gu Hai turned his head, “If you’re really sincere about this, then why must you marry my dad?”
Jiang Yuan was speechless.
Gu Hai sneered, then walked out with big strides.
It’s 8 o’clock at night when Gu Hai was on his way to Tian Jin.
He barely came out from the south station entrance, when suddenly he was embraced tightly, Jin Lu Lu hugged both of Gu Hai’s sides, there was a hint of complain in her voice, “You’ve finally realized to come over and see me?”
Gu Hai handed an exquisite box of moon cake to Jin Lu Lu, “Tomorrow is the Mid-Autumn festival, let’s celebrate it together.”
When Jin Lu Lu heard these words, God knows how touched she was in her heart. When Gu Hai was able to say these kind of words, it proved that she had already become Gu Hai’s most important person.
“Oh right, I bought a couple of new clothes for you, you can change to it later when we go back tonight, you see what are you wearing right now?” Jin Lu Lu said while pulling a loose thread from Gu Hai’s collar.
It’s really rare to see, but this time Gu Hai didn’t refuse Jin Lu Lu, maybe it’s because they were at the place a hundred kilometers away, he didn’t have to worry that his identity would be exposed. When Gu Hai changed his clothes into international branded ones, his tall and slender figure attracted a lot of attentions. When he walked on the streets he would always attract pairs of eyes, following him in interest, causing Jin Lu Lu to curl her lips from time to time.
“We talked about this already, when you go back to Beijing, you can wear those rag-like clothes, only when you came to see me you will wear these clothes.”
Gu Hai sighed heavily, after going back to Beijing, even if you force me to wear it, I won’t wear it.
Jin Lu Lu was walking while staring at Gu Hai incessantly, until Gu Hai’s eyes met hers.
“What are you looking at?”
Jin Lu Lu puckered up her lips in a smile, “I noticed that you changed back already.”
Gu Hai’s solemn eyes shot a glance at Jin Lu Lu, “What do you mean by change back?”
“Recently, when I went to your place and lived with you for three days, I felt like you were being possessed, you would smile to me from time to time, you would also say some pleasant words to me occasionally, you never did something like that before. However, this time when you come here, you seem like you’re back to normal, not so gentle anymore, you didn’t talk much too, as if you’re so indifferent to everything….”
“So, you mean I wasn’t good to you before?”
“No no no… On the contrary, I really like it when you’re like this, it gives me more sense of security.”
Gu Hai suddenly stood still, he turned his head towards Jin Lu Lu, and asked her inexplicably, “Do you think I’m a decent and serious person?”
A snort could be heard, Jin Lu Lu laughed.
“What a nonsense… Of course you are. Otherwise, why would I be together with you?”
Are you Addicted?
