Episode 28

(Back Then, I Adored You (8)

Mother Qin had just been chatting without any underlying intentions, so she had not expected Old Master Gu to talk about himself like that. She immediately became embarrassed. “Old Master, please don’t say that. I know that you just wanted the best for the children. I’m not blaming you. You don’t have to…”

Mother Qin initially wanted to say “scold yourself,” but that didn’t seem very nice, so she substituted those words and finished her sentence with “…blame yourself.”

You think I want to blame myself? I have no choice!

Old Master Gu was furious but, no matter how angry he was, he suppressed his fiery temper. He smiled at Mother Qin and said, “In-law Qin, I was wrong in the way I handled this situation, but I was just too fond of Xiao’ai, so that’s how I ended up handling it.”

Mother Qin hurriedly indicated that it was alright, and then Old Master Gu continued chatting with her with a smile on his face. When their little peanut emerged from her bath, Mother Qin rose and followed the caretaker and Nanny Zhang to put her to sleep in the nursery. It was only then that Old Master Gu stood up and made his way upstairs with his cane. When he arrived at Gu Yusheng’s door, he started banging on it and demanding, “Gu Yusheng, come out here!”


Gu Yusheng’s spirits were peaking and his motion grew increasingly faster. As he was about to lose control, the sound of his grandfather’s angry roar reached his ears. He abruptly stopped, as the ambience was forcefully and immediately shattered.

“Come out here, Gu Yusheng. You come the hell out here!” Old Master Gu roared again.

Gu Yusheng shut his eyes and took a few deep breaths. After kissing Qin Zhi’ai’s lips apologetically, he got out of bed, put on some clothes, and left the room.


It was already 11:00 p.m. when Lu Bancheng got home. When he exited the elevator, he bumped into a neighbor who was leaving her apartment. He had lived here for two years and was familiar with his neighbors, exchanging a few words whenever they ran into each other.

“Mr. Lu, you’re back?”

“Yes.” Lu Bancheng nodded his head and responded politely.

His neighbor smiled. Something struck her just as she was entering the elevator. She asked, “Mr. Lu, did you hire a stay-in housekeeper? She’s rather pretty.”

Lu Bancheng was taken aback. “Huh?”

“I saw a young lady entering your house this afternoon. I thought she was your girlfriend so I asked her, and she said that she’s your housekeeper.”

At this, Lu Bancheng instantly understood that Xu Wennuan was the girl his neighbor was talking about. His smile did not reach his eyes as he nodded at his neighbor in a perfunctory manner before keying in his passcode and stepping into the apartment.

He walked through the entrance hall and, with the help of the bright crystal lighting in the room, caught sight of Xu Wennuan who was asleep on the couch.

His footsteps slowed before eventually reaching her. She seemed to be dreaming, as her eyebrows were tightly knitted, and there were tears at the corners of her eyes.

A sharp and piercing pain in Lu Bancheng’s heart made him purse his lips tightly. Then, he bent down slowly to wipe away her tears; however, before his fingers made contact with her face, he heard two clear words coming out of her mouth. “Wu Hao.”

Hearing these two words had the effect of a dagger stabbing his heart. Lu Bancheng quickly took a step back, but his stride was too long and he bumped into the coffee table behind him. Everything on the table fell off and landed on the floor, causing Xu Wennuan to open her eyes.
