Episode 32

(The Truth behind the Car Accident (2)

“I’ve promised Yusheng that I will never leave him no matter what happens, so I will not leave him until I die. As long as I am alive, you will never be able to drive me away from him.”

Upon hearing these words, Old Master Gu felt as if he were about to explode in rage. He was already spiteful about his grandson getting secretly married behind his back. And now, in the face of the girl who was speaking calmly before him, his guilt toward the Liang family, compounded with his anger, got the better of him. Before he realized it, he had already sprung up from his seat and swung his hand to slap Qin Zhi’ai across the face.

Qin Zhi’ai had never expected Old Master Gu to physically attack her. Upon seeing his hand swing toward her, her first reaction was that of shock and her mind blanked out completely. Forgetting to avoid the blow, she merely closed her eyes.

After a few seconds, though, she still didn’t feel the pain across her face that she had anticipated. Her delicate brows twitched, and her eyelashes fluttered with uncertainty before she slowly opened her eyes.

The initial tension and confrontational atmosphere was overpowered by one of chill and hostility. Nanny Zhang, who was standing merely a foot away from her, was trembling with fear and staring at something next to her.

Qin Zhi’ai paused momentarily and, as if she had finally caught onto what was going on, she spun her head around and looked in the direction of Nanny Zhang’s gaze.

Upon receiving her text message, Gu Yusheng had rushed over. With his lips pursed into a hard line, his hands were locked onto Old Master Gu’s wrists, which were inches away from Qin Zhi’ai’s face. As Gu Yusheng stared at him fixedly, Old Master Gu’s face maintained a look of fury. Not having anticipated Gu Yusheng’s arrival at this instant, a hint of surprise flashed in his eyes.

It was as if time had frozen and everything had come to a stop. Finally, Gu Yusheng ask in a low, soft voice, “Grandfather, were you about to slap her?”

The tone he had used was chilling, and even Old Master Gu leaned back reflexively in shock and then tried to yank his wrists out of Gu Yusheng’s grip. Gu Yusheng tightened it and, staring straight at Old Master Gu, he emphasized his words once more. “Grandfather, were you about to slap her?”

Finally remembering that the man standing before him was his own grandson and that he should not be terrified by him, Old Master Gu spat out in rage, “YES!”

At the moment Old Master Gu spoke, a deafening smack echoed throughout the room. Qin Zhi’ai reflexively jumped up from the sofa, as if she were the one on the receiving end of the slap. Staring at the scene that had just unfolded, her lips moved a few times but no sound came out of her throat.

Nanny Zhang, who was standing nearby, also backed away hurriedly before taking one big step forward. Tightly clenching her own sleeves, she looked helplessly at the grandfather and grandson before stuttering, “Old… Old Master Gu. Young… Young Master…”

Gu Yusheng and Old Master Gu took no notice of the reaction of the two women and continued to glare fixedly at each other without batting an eyelid.
