Episode 45

(The Truth behind the Car Accident (15)

Nanny Zhang was suspicious, but she still obeyed the order.

Ten minutes later, Gu Yusheng walked downstairs with one hand holding Qin Zhi’ai’s hand and the other carrying her purse.

Old Master Gu had been looking out the window when he heard footsteps approaching. He immediately turned away from the window wearing his usual aloof look on his face. He picked up the tea from the coffee table and casually blew on it before taking a sip.

“Grandpa, it’s getting late, so we’re taking off now.” Gu Yusheng stopped in front of his grandfather while holding on to Qin Zhi’ai’s hand.

Old Master Gu slowly looked up to glance at Gu Yusheng and calmly responded, “Okay.” When he looked away from Gu Yusheng, he glanced at Qin Zhi’ai’s face out of the corner of his eye.

Qin Zhi’ai politely said goodbye to Old Master Gu, who pretended he didn’t hear her and continued to sip his tea. Anxious to leave, Gu Yusheng walked to the foyer pulling Qin Zhi’ai by her hand.

As Gu Yusheng squatted down to tie Qin Zhi’ai’s shoes for her, Old Master Gu turned around to Nanny Zhang next to him and gave her a signal to send Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai off. Nanny Zhang didn’t understand and confusedly asked, “What?”

Old Master Gu put his finger against his lips to signal to her not to make a sound; he then moved his eyebrows and blinked to give her more hints. Nanny Zhang, however, still didn’t understand. She then raised her voice to ask, “Master Gu, what’s wrong with your eyes?”

Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai were about to open the door to leave, when they immediately turned around to see what Nanny Zhang was referring to. Old Master Gu was so furious at Nanny Zhang that he almost slipped by saying, “My eyes are fine. I was asking you to send them off.” Instead, when he saw Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai looking at him, he took a sip of tea and swallowed his words along with it, but he sipped it too fast and almost choked. After coughing a few times, he put his cup on the coffee table and, with an unhappy face, he walked to the first-floor study as he stabbed his cane on the floor with every step he took.

Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai looked at each other and then said goodbye to Nanny Zhang before they opened the door and left.

After Gu Yusheng’s car disappeared out of the gates, Old Master Gu walked back out from his study again. When Nanny Zhang saw him at the door, she asked, “Sir, I will get the tub ready for—”

Before she could finish, Old Master Gu scolded her with gritted teeth. “I have never seen anyone as stupid as you.”

Nanny Zhang remained confused about what she had done wrong, while Old Master Gu slowly sat down on the sofa. Before she could say anything to comfort him, he asked her, “Zhang, what do you think of that woman?”

Nanny Zhang knew that by “that woman” he meant Qin Zhi’ai. “She is pretty, respectful, and polite.”

I know all of that… Grandpa Gu commented silently in his head. After staring at the TV for a while, he then asked, “What do you think of Xiaokou?”

“Miss Liang was born into a wealthy family, so she does wield her temper. She is indeed very nice to you and Young Master. But you saw her grow up: Don’t you think you know her better than I do?”
