Chapter 22

Hello, I Am Your Father

 

Zhuang Nai Nai didn’t think those people had anything to do with her. She returned to her home, only to received a big shock.

Her mother was standing anxiously in their small living room. When she saw Zhuang Nai Nai, she ran to her, grabbing her hands tightly before hiding behind Nai Nai, “Nai Nai, mommy is scared! There are so many people…”

A pair of middle-aged man and woman were sitting on their couch.

Those two people were not strangers to Zhuang Nai Nai’s eyes, they frequently appeared on financial news.

The man who was wearing coat was Gu De Shou, the Chairman of Gu Enterprise. The elegant woman who was dressed beautifully was his wife.

Gu Enterprise was a company worth more than 1 billion, they were pretty famous in the capital.

But…. why did these two people suddenly came to her house?

Gu De Shou looked at Zhuang Nai Nai and her mother with a complicated expression. He got up and outstretched his hand towards her, “Hello….. I am your father.”

Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart was suddenly assaulted by myriads of feelings. She felt choked up and her nose turned sour.

Father…..

She grew up with her mother. When she saw other girls having both moms and dads, she asked her mother where her father was.

Everytime she asked that, her mother’s eyes would turn red. After giving her curt answers, she would turn away and spend the entire night weeping.

After Zhuang Nai Nai grew up a little, she no longer asked that question. She thought, her father must had abandoned them. Her mother was so kind, so strong, she would never do anything wrong.

Despite everything, she was still curious about what kind of a person her father was.

Whenever she was bullied or had a tremendous heart ache…. Whenever she was having a hard time, just like five years ago when she didn’t think she would be able to survive, she would daydream about her father descending from the sky to save the day.

As she faced that man, she forced herself to calm down. The trembling of her hands mirrored the furore in her heart.

She took a deep breath before straightening her body, looking very vigilant, “Why should I trust you?”

A secretary that was standing behind him, stepped forward and handed her a DNA test result.

Zhuang Nai Nai read the result. After a while, she folded it before putting it inside her handbag.

She looked at Gu De Shou, trying her best to suppress her anger. She pointed at the door, “Leave!”

Everyone inside the room were stunned; they didn’t expect her to do that.

Gu De Shou frowned, his face turning blue.

His wife, Li Yu Feng got up and scolded her, “What are you doing?”

Zhuang Nai Nai fisted her hands. Her entire body was trembling from anger as she looked at Gu De Shou, “What am I doing? I am telling all of you that I have no father!”

Her tears rolled down from her eyes, “Why did you showed up now? Why only now? Where were you when my mother was in a car accident and was admitted to the hospital? Where were you when I could not settle her hospital bill, when I could not settle my university’s fees? Where were you when people were trampling all over me? Where were you when mom was called crazy?” Zhuang Nai Nai felt more aggrieved as she spoke. It was as though there was a huge stone on top of her chest, making it hard for her to breathe.

Gu De Shou looked like he had finally understood something. “I….”

Li Yu Feng opened her mouth first, her voice calm and distant, “You misunderstood something. That woman is not your mother….”
