Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
It was these small gestures that made Gu Chaoyan feel good about Auntie Song.
Auntie Song had been with Madame Wang for years. She had met all kinds of people. But Miss Chaoyan was quite special. Despite being Tong's savior, she did not behave arrogantly and never tried to take advantage of this special identity.
Because of this attitude of hers, Auntie Song said involuntarily, "Miss Chaoyan."
"Yes?" Gu Chaoyan looked gentle and friendly, an expression she only showed to those who treated her well.
"I was quite surprised after I saw you. You are totally different from what the rumors claim. As someone who has eaten more salt than you, I would like to give you a suggestion. Miss Chaoyan, you will have to marry someone in the future . If you need help with it, Madame Wang can definitely help you. But, for that, you will have to clean up your public image, so that your future life can be smoother." Auntie Song took a pause at this point.
"Please don't be offended by what I said."
Gu Chaoyan looked at Auntie Song and smiled sincerely.
Her smile almost shocked Auntie Song. She suddenly found Miss Chaoyan to be extremely beautiful.
"I got it! Thank you for the suggestion."
Gu Chaoyan was aware of the rumors regarding her and she did not like her image being tarnished. But she was not worried about her marriage, because she never thought about getting hitched.
As for her being ugly, it was true for now, but she could turn pretty in the future. She could also stand being called a dumped woman because of the engagement being annulled. These comments didn't really bother her as much since none of this was her fault. But the shoplifting rumors were quite annoying, since that was something related to her morals!
The worst was that no one from Gu Mansion was bothered to rectify the rumor for her sake.
It wouldn't be a surprise if it was Gu Mansion who started the rumor in the first place.
Else, who would know what she did in the mansion. To make the matters worse, her cheap father kept complaining publicly about her being a shame to the family.
She was definitely going to find an opportunity to correct everything slowly.
"Here we are, Miss Chaoyan." Auntie Song said politely when she saw her lost in her thoughts.
Gu Chaoyan nodded and entered the room.
Since Officer Wang was a male, he left the place when Gu Chaoyan entered. Apart from Madame Wang, only Tong remained in there.
The child stood up at the sight of Gu Chaoyan.
He came upto Gu Chaoyan like a young adult. "Sister, are you the lady who saved me the other day?"
Gu Chaoyan nodded.
He smiled and took Gu Chaoyan's hands into his own. "Sister, thank you so much. Grandma told me that if you had not been there, I would still be suffering from great pain. I will repay this debt when I grow up."
Facing Tong who was so passionate, Gu Chaoyan felt a bit anxious. She had not been accustomed to interacting with many people in her previous life.
Now when she was facing Madame, Auntie Song and everyone else who was so kind to her, she had no idea how to react to the situation.
She flushed and her ears turned red.
Seeing her awkwardness, Qing came to her rescue. "Little Sir, if you want to thank my lady, I have a good suggestion for you."
Tong looked up at Qing, his expression was serious. "What suggestion?"
