Chapter 49: Rejection of Fu Hanzheng’s Call
As the evening fell, the lights of the club were all on, dazzling and bright. People who were well dressed made toasts to each other and none of them seemed to have been affected by the incident of the Meng Family.
Ming Zongyuan did not like engaging himself in social activities. So he stayed with the children in the yard whilst the lady of the Ming Family was in the banquet hall receiving the guests.
“Mrs. Fu, you seem to know Miss. Mu as well?”
The lady of the Ming Family could tell that the Old Master was planning to set up a date for her daughter and the girl, but what had happened today made her feel a bit uncomfortable.
“A girl from an old friend. She lost her family and the Old Lady adopted her into the Fu Family.”
Mrs. Fu did not like Mu Weiwei that much, but she did not bad mouth her behind her back, because that would make her an uncivilized person.
Also, if Mu Weiwei ended up being with Ming Ye, she would give up on Fu Hanzheng and that would save the Fu Family a great deal of trouble.
In the yard, Gu Weiwei had thought that it would be an awkward blind date, yet Ming Ye was gentle, friendly, funny and humorous. He took great care of the three young ladies.
Also, he had noticed that her throat was not feeling well, so he asked his servant to get her hot drinks that were good for the throat.
She was also served some mild food, and that made her feel that she was not on a blind date but at an interesting gathering with friends.
Ji Cheng did not pay much attention to the food on the table but stared at her cell phone screen the whole time. She did not stop until Ming Zongyuan scolded her. “I am trying to find what Gu Weiwei looks like. She seems to be a huge tycoon.”
Gu Weiwei’s lip corner twitched as she was sitting right next to her, “…”
“Ah, why are there no pictures of her face.” Ji Cheng put down her cell phone in disappointment as she mumbled, “It is so difficult to imagine how a noble lives, when she can have Martin Green as her private designer and wears the limited version of the luxurious brand.”
Gu Weiwei smiles politely. It was not a very strange life for a noble from A Land.
The Gu Family, however, was just trying to offer something better to her.
Ji Cheng gave up searching for news. Instead, she blinked at Gu Weiwei.
“Weiwei, don’t you think that my cousin is extremely good-looking?”
Gu Weiwei laughed dryly, “I can’t say anything else since you say so?”
Ji Cheng asked with a bright smile, “Have you considered marrying him?”
Ming Zongyuan added, “I told you that my grandson is excellent. He has designed many famous buildings abroad…”
Ming Ye’s smile stiffened. He took a sip at the wine without showing an expression.
“Grandpa, she is still young.”
Gu Weiwei nodded and said, “Yes, I am really still young.”
“Not that young. You are eighteen years old. You can have a relationship for two years and then get married later. That would be right on time.” Ming Zongyuan said without caring about what others were thinking.
“I don’t think that works.” Gu Weiwei answered with a dry smile.
This old man simply had no idea who his grandson had a crush on so he had set up a blind date for her.
Ming Ye took another sip of the wine, trying to press down something when he saw Ji Cheng persuading Gu Weiwei to become her cousin-in-law.
After talking for a while, Ming Zongyuan asked Ji Cheng and Luo Qianqian to take a walk, leaving her and Ming Ye behind.
Seeing the group going away, Ming Ye smiled with an apologetic smile.
“Sorry, my grandpa is used to making the decisions here for everyone. He wants to have a hand in everything.”
Gu Weiwei smiled lightly, “But I do think that… you should tell Ji Cheng the truth as soon as possible, otherwise you will have to be a cousin forever.”
Ming Ye never expected that she would say something like this, so he became slightly startled.
“My little angel are the words written on the necklace, right? And it is a necklace that shows love in foreign countries.” Gu Weiwei told him what she had discovered.
Ming Ye smiled helplessly. “You did not tell her, did you?”
Gu Weiwei shook her head. “Not yet, but I think that you better tell her yourself.”
“Thanks, I will when she grows a bit older.” Ming Ye said.
After the dinner, Ming Ye arranged a car to drive her and Luo Qianqian home whilst he himself gave Ji Cheng a lift.
The moment Gu Weiwei entered the room, the fixed phone in the living room rang. She knew pretty well that it must be from the man she had blocked on her cell-phone.
Therefore, she pulled the cable out without answering the call, creating a peaceful quietness throughout the entire apartment.
