After a celestial war occurred in Yun Jianyun’s heart for a while, she finally drummed up the courage to tell Su Xu the reason she wanted to meet him: to go home with her and act out a play.
Su Xu didn’t touch the food in front of him at all. He frowned. “Your parents still don’t know about you guys?”
Only after his voice faded did he remember the previous rumors of marriage between the Gu family and the Yun family. He examined Yun Jianyue. She didn’t dare let Yun Xiaotian and the others know. This meant the initial person Gu Zhishen wanted to marry was the eldest daughter of the Yun family, Yun Siwan.
“If you’re willing to help me with this, I’ll be very grateful to you. Moreover, it will only be one time; there definitely won’t be a next time!” Yun Jianyue examined Su Xu carefully. “Of course, if you’re not willing, I won’t force you…”
“I promise you!”
Before she’d even finished speaking, Su Xu had already interrupted her and promised.
Yun Jianyue stared at him in disbelief. He’d actually agreed to help her?
Truth be told, the hope she carried in her heart didn’t pass thirty percent.
“Don’t look at me with such an expression. No matter what, we’d been together for so long. Even if we broke up, how can I sit by and do nothing when you have problems?” Su Xu said with his mouth, but his heart was planning something else. Since Yun Xiaotian and Chen Xiaoxiao still didn’t know about them, and Gu Zhishen was initially supposed to marry Yun Siwan, if they found out, they definitely wouldn’t approve.
It seemed he still had a chance. He needed to seize this chance well!
“That…is your girlfriend okay with it?” Yun Jianyue asked hesitantly. She didn’t want Lin Yaxin to cause such a big commotion that not even the chickens and dogs were left undisturbed just because Su Xu helped her once!
“Actually, we already…” Su Xu’s words were already at his lips. When he looked at her clear and dust-free eyes, he suddenly stopped.
“What happened to you guys?” Yun Jianyue asked curiously.
“We’re very well. There are no problems!”
Su Xu had planned on telling her that he’d already broken up with Lin Yaxin. However, when he thought about how he’d only just broken up with Jianyue not long ago, and now he’d broken up with Lin Yaxin so quickly, it really didn’t look good!
Moreover, she might be afraid and wouldn’t want him to help the moment he told her the situation. It was only by saying he and Lin Yaxing were good that she wouldn’t put up her guard against him!
“Then I should thank you first!” Yun Jianyue used the fruit juice as wine to give him a toast.
“You’re welcome!” Su Xu was also drinking fruit juice. He took a small sip, put down the cup, and said, “Accompany me to buy some things this afternoon.”
Yun Jianyue’s puzzled gaze turned to him.
Su Xu said, “I’m visiting your house for the first time, I can’t go there empty-handed, right?”
Yun Jianyue thought about it and that seemed to be correct. She nodded and promised.
After the meal, she called her head of department, and when he heard her, he immediately agreed happily to let her off early. He didn’t even deduct her salary.
Yun Jianyue hung up the phone and a sentence emerged in her head, Having the big tree Gu Zhishen behind her was indeed very good for cooling off in the shade!
Su Xu had driven there, so they took his car to the mall. They bought a set of skincare products matching Chen Xiaoxiao’s taste. They then bought the tea Yun Xiaotian liked to drink the most and a chess set.
Su Xu initially wanted to pay for these things. However, Yun Jianyue couldn’t allow for it no matter what. She was the one who asked Su Xu for help; how could she ask him to spend money?
Su Xu was more stubborn than her but didn’t insist. Moreover, he’d never realized before but the amount of money Yun Jianyun spent wasn’t low. Just the things they were holding in their hands were already worth a few hundred thousand.
The set of cosmetic products was already close to ten thousand. The tea was around twenty thousand. The most expensive was the chess set. It actually cost about ninety thousand.
Yun Jianyue would finish choosing, ask the price, and wouldn’t blink when she swiped her card.
Su Xu looked at the clothes on her body, and they looked normal. They weren’t famous brands. He felt very depressed in his heart. If she’d dressed better, perhaps he wouldn’t have thought her family was very average.
“Jianyue, you don’t seem to ever wear branded clothes?” Su Xu asked hesitantly.
“Because I don’t like them! Clothes that cost thousands and tens of thousands do look good but they aren’t suitable for my work!”
It wasn’t that she didn’t have those beautiful and expensive clothes. At their house, her older sister, her mother, and she each had a dressing room. They were all seasonal clothes from all types of high-end brands. However, she basically never wore them.
It was because she only wore a white shirt with a black suit every day at work. She sat in front of a computer and worked nonstop. Who was she showing if she dressed gorgeously?
Was it for the computer to see?
Su Xu didn’t continue to ask, and he changed the subject. “Do you need to buy anything else? What do you want to buy for your older sister?”
“Older sister…” Yun Jianyue hesitated slightly. There was no way she could tell Su Xu that Yun Siwan had run away from her marriage. This wasn’t something one could be proud of. “No need to buy anything for my older sister. She isn’t at home today.”
Su Xu nodded.
The two of them strolled around for a bit. Yun Jianyue saw a piece of clothing that was quite good. The price also wasn’t very high, around two thousand. She bought it straightaway. It was to be given to Zhu Jingyi.
Su Xu thought about the fountain pen she bought for him in the past that cost over ten thousand. At that time, he’d even reproached her for wasting money. He felt really stupid thinking about it now. The clothes she casually bought for her friend already cost a few thousand; why would she care about that ten thousand?
There was nothing else that needed to be bought, and it was about time. Yun Jianyue and Su Xu went back to the Yun house. It could be assumed her parents were probably already home.
The two of them were both in their own thoughts and didn’t notice there were people following them this afternoon.
It was around 4:30 in the afternoon when they arrived at the Yun house. Su Xu drove the car to the gate and waited for the villa’s security. He saw the Yun family villa from afar, and the emotions in his heart were complex.
When he’d brought her back in the past, they’d always stopped by the roadside. She didn’t let him bring her to the house gate. He always thought she lived in a normal residence nearby. However, he never would’ve thought it was a detached luxury villa.
Yun Jianyue walked in front and Su Xu followed behind, carrying the things. The moment she walked through the door, she said, “Mom, Dad, I’m back.”
A servant brought house slippers for her to change into. After she finished changing, she headed to the living room. Chen Xiaoxiao was already at the entrance of the living room door. “You’re back. Where’s Su Xu?”
“At the back.” Yun Jianyue looked through the glass and saw the sofa that had its back to her. It seemed a person was sitting there. “Mom, did a guest come to our house?”
Yun Xiaotian also stood up. His warm and loving gaze looked at Yun Jianyue. “Jianyue! You’re back. Quickly come and say hello!”
While Yun Jianyue was heading toward the living room, the person sitting on the sofa with his back facing her stood up. She looked at his back and suspected in her heart, Why does this back look so similar to Gu Zhishen’s?
The tall and handsome back turned around. He had one hand in his pocket, his handsome face clearly reflected in Yun Jianyue’s eyes.
Immediately, a buzz sounded in Yun Jianyue’s head and it then went blank.
“You…you…Why are you here?” Underneath Gu Zhishen’s unpredictable gaze, Yun Jianyue felt a bolt out from the blue. Her hands couldn’t help but point at him.
Gu Zhishen didn’t have any expression on his face. His sharp eyebrows raised slightly. He was silent and didn’t say a word.
Chen Xiaoxiao patted Yun Jianyue’s soft and white hands, “What are you doing? Where have your manners gone? You need to call him brother-in-law.”
