HH – Chapter 44

Chapter 44

Everything is a Lie

 

The remaining journey home is very quiet.  The bodyguards finally managed to have some peace.

As Zhuang Nai Nai gets down from the car, she treats them exceptionally well and polite, smiling sweetly, “Please send my kind regards to your boss!”

After that, she turns around and runs at the speed of light.

Too much has happened in just one day.

First, she cheated people off 500,000 yuan.  Then, she tried to make a run for it.  And then, she got caught.  She feels like she has been in a bad roller coaster ride.  She needs to take a pill for anxiety after this.

Just…..

Remembering what Si Zheng Ting said to her, she scratches her head in wonder.  What does he mean by all that?

Does he want to marry or not?

She arrives in her home shrouded in curiosity.  She takes out a key and then unlocks the door of the house.  The moment she walks in, she discovers the presence of someone sitting on the couch.

When she sees that person, the first thing running through her mind is: Did I entered the wrong house?

She looks around, this is indeed the little house that she lives in with her mother.  Zhuang Nai Nai looks at Gu De Shou with a guilty smile.  She needs to be honest with him about what transpired today.  She does not wish to lie to him.  Si Zheng Ting never agreed to marry her.  “Why are you here, dad?  It’s a coincidence; I have something I want to tell you.”

Gu De Shou gives her a kind smile, “Qing Yan ah, you know that your mother’s heart is tangled because of your Zhuang mama.  You have no idea how worried your mother was for you for the years in which you went missing.  Your mother is cold on the outside but soft on the inside, things must not be so hostile between the two of you.”

Zhuang Nai Nai sighs.  Since she is not leaving, she needs to have a good relationship with her parents.

She is not a completely unreasonable person, so she nods in agreement, “En, I understand, dad.”

No matter what, the Gu Family gave her 500,000 yuan.  She really must thank them.

Gu De Shou smiles, “It is better for you to live with us in the months leading to your wedding.  Foster a good relationship with your mother, try to get along with her.”

Just as Zhuang Nai Nai is about to admit that the whole marriage thing is a hoax, Gu De Shou speaks first, “I know that you are worried about your Zhuang mama.  In order to not let her become an obstacle between you and your mother, I have sent people to bring her abroad.  I know a really good therapist there, so I sent her to be treated by him.  The treatment there is a lot better than in here.”

Zhuang Nai Nai looks at him in disbelief.

He is still smiling kindly at her; if someone who doesn’t know them sees them, he or she would think that their father-daughter relationship is extremely good.

Zhuang Nai Nai can feel cold sweat forming on her back:  He is using Zhuang mama to threaten her.

The whole kind father thing is just an act; and fixing her relationship with Li Yu Feng is just an excuse.

The temperature inside her house drops.  Zhuang Nai Nai feels like she is trapped inside a net.

She opens her mouth, trying to say something but in the end, cannot bring herself to.

Her mother is in their hands, if she angers them….

There is a smile on Zhuang Nai Nai’s face, “I understand, dad.”
