Yun Jianyue shook her head, “Sis didn’t contact me!”
From the look of things, they probably didn’t know about Gu Zhishen and her registering their marriage. Then why did they have such upset expressions?
Before Yun Jianyue could even ask, she could only hear Yun Xiaotian saying in a towering rage, “Don’t mention that unfilial daughter to me again. She has completely ruined the Yun’s family reputation! She can forget stepping half a step into the Yun household in the future!”
Chen Xiaoxiao frowned and quietly appeased her irritable husband. “Don’t speak out of anger. Wanwan is your own daughter.”
“I don’t have such an unfilial daughter.” Yun Xiaotian couldn’t suppress his anger and he straightened his neck and scolded.
Chen Xiaoxiao knew he was angry right now and all the words he spoke were just spoken out of anger. She knew that no matter how much she tried to console him, it would just be a waste of strength. Sigh.
Yun Jianyue tightened her lips and looked at Yun Xiaotian’s red cheeks. She knew her father was very, very angry right now.
Her small heart couldn’t help but go thump, thump, thump.
Moreover, the more she listened to them, the more confused she became.
What “ruined reputation?”
What “unfilial daughter?”
Wasn’t she the one who snatched her older sister’s husband away?
Why was Dad so angry at her older sister?
“You haven’t rested for the night. You go upstairs and rest. I’ll go make something for you to eat.” Chen Xiaoxiao patted her husband’s shoulder. She was worried his anger might damage his body.
Yun Xiaotian didn’t brush away his wife’s good intentions. He got up and wanted to head upstairs. He glanced at Yun Jianyue and his expression couldn’t help but turn tender. “My Jianyue is still the most obedient. You’re mature and you do as you’re told!”
In the past, when Yun Jianyue heard this, she would grab his arm and act coquettishly. However, at this moment, both her hands were placed behind her back, moving around restlessly. She smiled while feeling guilty in her heart.
Yun Xiaotian went upstairs to rest.
It was only now that Yun Jianyue asked again, “Mom, what exactly happened?”
Chen Xiaoxiao glanced at her husband’s back, and it was only when she was certain he disappeared behind the stairs that she lowered her voice and said, “Wanwan ran away from her marriage yesterday. She left a message saying she wouldn’t marry Gu Zhishen. We searched for her all night and still couldn’t find her. We went to the Gu household to apologize this morning and only just came back!”
Yun Jianyue felt like she was struck by lightning once again. It even felt like the kind of lighting that came after one did something bad.
Her older sister ran away during her engagement banquet?
Her older sister didn’t want to marry Gu Zhishen?
Was that true?
Chen Xiaoxiao saw her dumbstruck expression and thought she was also shocked because Yun Siwan ran away from her marriage and didn’t think too much about it. She only urged her not to mention Wanwan in front of Yun Xiaotian for the time being. This was to avoid adding fuel to the fire and causing him to harm his body by getting angry.
After she finished speaking, she went to the kitchen to cook something up for her husband.
Because of the incident with Yun Siwan, Chen Xiaoxiao and Yun Xiaotian had run around all night and only just came back. That’s why they didn’t actually know Yun Jianyue hadn’t come back the entire night and also just came back.
Yun Jianyue muddleheadedly went back to her room and sat at the bedside. She then couldn’t help but start biting on her fingernails again.
Her older sister ran away from her marriage and didn’t want to marry Gu Zhishen. And she and Gu Zhishen registered their marriage?
So many things happened within the span of one day. Yun Jianyue momentarily couldn’t take them in. She even more so couldn’t accept that she actually married her brother-in-law to become husband and wife!
Yun Jianyue wanted to see Gu Zhishen and clarify by asking him, but she didn’t have his number. So she looked for the two name cards Gu Zhishen left for her.
Cheng Yufei was written on the name card. There wasn’t a title, and it only had numbers. She pressed the numbers one by one and dialed the phone.
The call was answered very quickly. A gentle voice came from the other side of the phone. “Missus, what instructions do you have?”
Yun Jianyue was frightened into trembling by this word. She almost threw the phone away.
If it weren’t for the fact that she was very sure she didn’t dial the wrong number.
“That…Hello, I would like to ask, are you able to contact Gu Zhishen?”
“Missus, President Gu is currently still on the flight to Australia and can’t be contacted. If you have any instructions or anything you want me to tell him, I’ll contact President Gu once he gets off his flight and I’ll tell him to contact you immediately!”
Cheng Yufei’s attitude through the phone could simply be described using the words “reverent and respectful.”
Yun Jianyue panicked in her heart and quickly replied, “No, there’s nothing. Sorry to bother you, goodbye!”
With a slam, the call disconnected! Listening to Cheng Yufei speak to her so politely made it so even her hair was about to raise up!
She threw down the cell phone and her entire body leaned backward onto her big bed. She lamented, “God, you’re definitely playing a joke on me, right? Making it so complicated between me and my brother-in-law. What the hell is going on?”
Feeling troubled, she rolled around on the bed a few more times. And then…she unwittingly fell asleep.
When Yun Jianyue woke up, it was already pitch-black outside the window. In a daze, she sat up. Her body felt sticky and uncomfortable, so she got up and went to bathe.
Halfway through her bath, she faintly heard her phone ringing. She was afraid it was a call from her company. Before she even had time to wipe away the bubbles on her body, she wrapped herself in a bath towel, ran barefoot back beside the bed, picked up her phone, and took a look.
The incoming call was an unknown number. She answered the call without any hesitation and spoke habitually, “Hello, I’m Yun Jianyue. Who is this?”
The other side of the call didn’t reply for a moment and Yun Jianyue frowned. She suspected the call disconnected or it was a wrong number. She could see they were still connected and she was embarrassed to be the one to hang up the call. She asked patiently again, “May I ask who this…”
Before she could even finish, she was interrupted by a deep and attractive voice, “You didn’t save my number?”
Yun Jianyue heard his voice clearly and knew who he was. Her small heart was frightened into contracting. She suppressed her impulse to throw the phone away. She felt nervous for some reason when she thought about what happened last night. She answered with a stammer, “No…No!”
She couldn’t help but bite her fingernails. Why did her heart feel so guilty?!
He was her brother-in-law in the past. However, they didn’t really interact with each other before the engagement banquet. Wasn’t it very normal that she didn’t have his number saved?!
The person on the other side of the call went silent again.
Yun Jianyue was currently at a loss at how to break the silence. Gu Zhishen’s deep voice transmitted from the other side of the call, “Why did you want to speak to me?”
“Huh?” Yun Jianyue was stunned for a while at first before realizing he was referring to the call she made to Cheng Yufei.
She momentarily didn’t know what to say to him.
Should she ask him directly why her older sister ran away from the marriage, or should she ask him if they really had those sorts of relations last night, or should she ask him why he registered his marriage with her?
On the other side of the call, Gu Zhishen waited for a long time and still didn’t hear her talk. He couldn’t help but remind her, “Yun Jianyue!”
“I’m here.” Right after Yun Jianyue answered out of conditional reflex, she then screamed, “Ahh!!!”
The decibel was so high that it caused Gu Zhishen, who was far away in Melbourne, to move the phone away from his ear. It was only when he was sure there was no more screaming that he stuck it to his ear. He asked, “What happened?”
“I fell down.” Yun Jianyue sat on the wet floor, looked at her hurt knee, and pouted. When a person was unlucky, even water would get stuck between their teeth when they drink water.
“Fell down?” Gu Zhishen seemed not to believe it.
“I was bathing just now when I heard the phone so I came to pick it up. When I was walking back while talking to you, I was barefoot and I forgot how slippery the floor was so I fell down.” Yun Jianyue explained the cause and effect.
“Where are you hurt?” Gu Zhishen immediately asked.
