She froze for a moment and said, “I was just about to talk to you about this, don’t you and Mr. intend to go back to Jiangcheng? I have to go back tonight, you two are here, do you want to spend New Year’s Eve?”
I shook my head and said, “I guess I’ll have to go back to Jiangcheng for that too!”
She wrinkled her eyebrows and said, “Xiao Shu, you’ve only just entered the Shen family tree, so you should more or less join the Shen family for New Year’s Eve this year, that’s the rule.”
I had forgotten that the Shen family was still here, so I had a bit of a headache and held my forehead up and said, “En, I’ll think about how to arrange it this year.”
After eating breakfast, I went straight to Gu’s. Wang had come to the capital and was preparing to take his annual leave after the New Year’s Eve party.
After contacting him in advance, he was waiting for me in his office, when he saw me, he spoke, “There’s a new breakthrough in the ai product, the launch will be held after the year, if there’s nothing unexpected, Gu’s will monopolise the ai market.”
I was stunned, I didn’t expect him to give me such a big surprise, I couldn’t help but laugh, “This is probably the happiest news I’ve heard this year, make arrangements on your side, after attending the annual meeting everyone go home and have a good New Year, when we come back after the New Year we’ll have the new product launch directly.”
He nodded, handed me the papers and left, I stood in the office for a while.
I had originally gone into Gu’s acquisition of Huayao, originally to steal business from the Mo family, but now it seemed useless to do so.
But after all, it had been done and the results were good, which was unexpected, but with Gu Han gone, I was a little confused about the next step.
When I got out of Gu’s, I called Shen Changlin, and when he got through, I asked him out for lunch.
It was the end of the year and most people had taken their annual holidays. Shen Changlin had just returned from his visits to various provinces and regions and was free for the time being.
The Chinese restaurant.
After ordering, Shen Changlin looked at me and said, “Have you arranged your annual leave? I heard from Ah Yu that you are going back to Jiangcheng, is there anyone you can’t let go of there?”
I nodded my head and looked at him, “It’s a very close friend, and there’s also a child left behind by an old friend.
He smiled and said, “You’re a child, you’ve already prepared for this in your heart, it’s always your own idea, I’m used to this year after year, is there something wrong between you and Fu Shen Yan?”
I froze and shook my head slightly, “No, it’s all good!”
He frowned, “Son, between the two of you, from the moment you exchange wedding rings, you start to become one, no matter how many problems you encounter in the future, you have to be of one mind. Quarrels are common, you youngsters, all with your own angles and temperaments, will get along and communicate according to your own nature!”
“But this is the process of bonding, you can’t think of separating just because of quarrels and the slightest thing you encounter, child, marriage is not a child’s play, you can’t let go of it easily.
I nodded, understanding his words, and responded, “Dad, how’s the Mo family doing?”
Seeing me change the subject, he smiled and said somewhat helplessly, “As long as Mo Zhi Zhan doesn’t say anything, you will remain unharmed on the Mo family’s side, but it’s strange to say that after last night’s incident, the Mo family hasn’t made any movements until now, and it seems that apart from suppressing the media and major media websites, they don’t seem to have made any moves against you.”
I pursed my lips, also somewhat torn by the Mo family’s actions, and couldn’t help but think, could they be brewing a bigger conspiracy?
After chatting with Shen Changlin for a while, I went to the Xu family in the afternoon to see the two elderly members of the Xu family.
When I returned to the villa, it was already a bit late, and I was surprised to find Fu Shen Yan reading a book in the living room.
In the spirit of the theorem that if you don’t talk, you won’t argue, I went straight upstairs. Sister Zhang was not there and the villa was as empty as a ghost town.
“The two elderly members of the Xu family have looked, are you planning to visit the family of three in the cemetery tomorrow?” Fu Shen Yan’s voice rang out with a cool, cold tone.
I pursed my lips, but I didn’t get angry, I just spoke, “Mr. Fu’s hands are quite long!”
I always knew he had a bodyguard around me again, but I never thought he would have someone following me at all times.
He put down the book he was holding and rested his elbows on the sofa, his gaze coolly looking over at me, “Ready to bring anything to see him? There doesn’t seem to be anything to bring when you’re paying respects to a dead man.”
I twisted my eyebrows, always feeling that he was being a little too harsh, “Fu Shen Yan, while I don’t interfere with you, I hope you don’t interfere with me too much either.”
I didn’t have the mood or energy to argue with him, nor did I feel the need to.
I turned upstairs and went back to my bedroom, seeing that New Year’s Eve was coming up and I couldn’t sleep for a while, so I simply found my suitcase and put away some things that I needed to take back to Jiangcheng.
The first thing I did was to get the clothes out of my hand, and he almost smashed the suitcase on the floor.
“Even if you want to leave, you should at least make a show of going through the motions, right? Miss Shen, three years as husband and wife, and you’re just going to walk away from a lifetime of not wanting to, is this the upbringing you’ve been hanging on to for so long?”
I pursed my lips, my eyebrows hurting, “Fu Shen Yan, I don’t want to argue with you, I said, we both calm each other down for a while, if each other feel that this marriage we can not continue to go on, then we get together for good!”
I sighed, a little tired, “There is a solution to everything, you are an adult and so am I, you don’t have to get angry with me like that, there is not much point.”
He sneered, “What makes sense? You want a divorce? What’s the reason? Have I treated you badly? Or have I treated you harshly? You’re so eager to leave, because you think you’ve entered the Shen family, and with the Shen family as a dependency, I’m no longer useful to you as a husband, right?”
“Throw it away after you’ve used it, Shen Shu, it’s rare to find someone as ruthless as you.”
I tilted my head, suppressing the gloom in my heart, but in the end, I didn’t suppress it and looked at him, “So what do you want from me? I gave in and talked and you threw me off, now I’m shutting up and trying to give you time to calm down, and you’re saying I’m cruel? Fu Shen Yan, even if it’s a machine, before you want it to say anything or do anything, don’t you have to input the settings, ah, you don’t say a word, let me guess, I’m not a god, no mind reading, it’s impossible to guess what you want, what you want!”
He lowered his eyes to converge, cold and indifferent, his voice low, “Don’t touch Gu Han’s business in the future, don’t touch anything related to him, including the Xu family Gu family.”
I frowned, the Gu family itself is nothing I need to care about, but the two old men of the Xu family after all ……
Seeing that I didn’t say anything for a long time, he raised his hand, clasped my jaw, and pushed slightly harder, “Speak!”
“What do you want me to say?” Responding to him with a good word, but I knew I couldn’t possibly go without a visit, Gu Han saved my life, couldn’t I even visit him?
“Don’t set your mind on a dead man!”
I wrinkled my brows, a little annoyed, “Fu Shen Yan, can you skip the Gu Han part?”
He bites out a dead man, even a stranger’s respect shouldn’t be like that.
He sneered, “Skip? How can I skip it, my wife would lose her soul at the sight of another man in a sea of people, even when he died he kept his family in his thoughts, Shen Shu, don’t tell me you are grateful to him.”
“You know better than me what kind of person Gu Han is, would he help a stranger out of pity? No, you know better than I do what he wanted to do when he approached you in the first place, but even though you know better, you still indulge his care and concern for you all the same, do you know what you call that?”
He paused, his gaze fixed on me, and said, word for word, “Selfishness!”
I pursed my lips and looked into his dark eyes, suddenly pulling out a smile and nodding, “Eh, I’m selfish and self-serving, so you can get out of your relationship with me, a self-serving woman, as soon as possible before it’s too late, and not get involved with me in any way.”
I raised my hand and pushed him away, my eyes a little moist, and his face twitched a little as he raised his hand to pull me along.
My heart clogged up and I lowered my voice and yelled towards him, “Get out of here!”
