Chapter 40: A Blind Date
Gu Weiwei tossed away the flowers and received a call from Ji Cheng, who asked her to come over to her house with Luo Qianqian.
She and Luo Qianqian met first and then they took a taxi and headed towards Ji Cheng’s home.
On the way there, her phone rang again. She answered the call and found that it was the firm voice of Mr. Ming Zongyuan.
“Girl, are you at school?”
“I have asked for leave. I am outside.” Gu Weiwei replied.
Ming Zongyuan smiled mysteriously, “Where are you now? I will ask my driver to pick you up. There is someone important I would like you to meet.”
“Mr. Ming, I have an appointment this afternoon, and I can’t be there.” Gu Weiwei turned down the invitation.
“I told you about my grandson Ye right, he has just returned from abroad and I would like you guys to meet up. I have shown him your picture…”
“Where did you get my picture?” Gu Weiwei frowned.
“I snapped a shot when you were here last time.” Ming Zongyuan said unashamedly and continued to speak highly of his own grandson. “Ye is a very handsome guy and his personality is great too. He is an architect and he has won many prizes overseas…”
Gu Weiwei put her phone away from herself and shouted, “Mr. Ming, I am sorry, Mr. Ming, the reception here is very bad, what did you say? What….”
She hung up the phone and switched it off entirely.
This old man was being serious when he said that he wanted her to be his grand daughter-in-law. She had turned him down and now he was pushing her.
She was still a student who was yet to graduate from high school, and now he wanted her to go on a blind date.
Luo Qianqian watched her switching the phone with a weird look. “Who was it? You look scared to death.”
“A weird old dude. He wants me to go on a blind date with his grandson. I am still young, okay?” Gu Weiwei frowned, feeling troubled.
She had to find a place to live so that she could move out before Fu Hanzheng returned.
If she couldn’t find any accommodation, she would have to end up being in the school dormitory.
But living with Zhou Linna and Zhu Xiaoqin sounded disgusting.
“That is not weird. Ji Cheng claims that she wants to marry you every day.” Luo Qianqian stressed.
Ji Cheng had been fascinated by her idol Fu Shiyi, yet after knowing her, Fu Shiyi was now second in rank.
She had become Mu Weiwei’s most loyal fan, who was totally delighted to see her at anytime.
Gu Weiwei thought for a moment and realized that Ji Cheng was really that kind of girl.
Ji Cheng was a lovely girl who had average scores and no big dreams.
Luo Qianqian, on the other hand, was a rational and calm school student who had always had very high grades. She wondered what brought these two girls together as friends.
They two kept chatting and came to the military courtyard where Ji Cheng’s home was located.
The moment she entered the room, Ji Cheng pushed Gu Weiwei into her own bathroom.
“Goddess, I have got clothes and a towel ready, take a shower and wash your hair first.”
Gu Weiwei said, “I washed it yesterday.”
What was this strange way of greeting when the host forced the guest to take a shower as soon as the guest stepped into the door?
“Then wash it again.” Ji Cheng pleaded with her two palms clenched together.
Gu Weiwei could not resist her, so she took a shower, washed her hair and got herself dressed into the night gown on her request.
Ji Cheng was in the middle of showing Luo Qianqian the presents she had received. “Look at this bracelet, and this doll and all these brooches, aren’t they pretty?”
Gu Weiwei threw a look at the bed that was covered by various kinds of small ornaments. They were apparently bought from different foreign countries.
Luo Qianqian threw a look at them and said, “So these are all presents brought back home by your extremely handsome cousin?”
Ji Cheng nodded and said as she brought out the necklace around her neck.
“And this necklace too, look there are carved letters on it.”
Luo Qianqian threw a look at them and found that those were in Greek.
“What does this mean?”
“Excellent grades for all examinations.” Ji Cheng said.
Gu Weiwei took it and threw a look at it, then she returned it to her, frowning.
To hell with ‘excellent grades for all examinations’, the carved letters meant ‘my little angel’.
Silly girl, she was not even aware that she was being flirted with.
