“It’s here, at the bottom of the hill.”
Over the phone, Gu Qingying’s voice was calm.
This caused Chen Dong to frown slightly, slightly puzzled.
Immediately after, on the phone, Gu Qingying’s calm voice rang out again.
“Are you really going to propose to me?”
Chen Dong’s frown deepened as he smiled, “That’s for sure, I’ve been preparing for this day for a long time.”
The words had just left his mouth.
On the phone, Gu Guohua’s voice suddenly rang out.
“Chen Dong, what’s with the photos?”
Chen Dong was struck by lightning, his heart instantly sank to the bottom, and his eyes were even blackened.
Something was wrong!
In an instant, he was filled with depression and raging anger.
Gu Qingying and the others knew about it, so there was only one possibility.
Wang Nan Nan …… did not destroy the photos as promised!
Instead, he turned around and sent my photo to Gu Qingying!
Chen Dong hurriedly said, “Uncle, you guys wait for me, I’ll come over immediately.”
Hanging up the phone, Chen Dong hurriedly called for Kunlun to drive, leaving behind a crowd full of stunned eyes as he sped off towards the bottom of the mountain.
All along the way, Chen Dong looked furious, with raging anger in his eyes.
His hands were clenched into fists, and the bruises on the backs of his hands were prominent.
He had never imagined that he had thrown in the towel to satisfy the Wang family’s greed, but in the end, he had failed at this crucial moment.
He had prepared for this proposal for a long time, arranging everything himself.
He would never allow anything to go wrong when he was about to make his marriage with Gu Qingying a reality!
On the mountain road.
The black Mercedes-Benz G was quietly parked at the roadside.
After passing through the encircling line of news media, the surrounding silence was awesome.
Gu Qingying sat despondently in the back row, looking out of the window, her eyes red and swollen.
She thought about going straight up the mountain and accepting the proposal ceremony, or at least letting it be over before asking the long-hidden doubts in her heart.
But no matter what she did, she couldn’t convince herself.
It was like a hurdle she couldn’t get over, the photo!
“Xiao Ying hasn’t even spoken yet, why are you interrupting?” Li Wanqing looked at Gu Guohua angrily.
Gu Guohua looked solemn and was about to speak.
But Gu Qingying waved her hand and said, “Mom, it’s alright, I’ll ask even if dad doesn’t say anything.”
Her eyes flickered and her red lips mumbled, “Since he’s going to propose to me, I want this proposal to be perfect, not always a little flawed and with a thorn in my heart when I recall it later.”
Since it was a proposal ceremony, she wanted it to be perfect, so that in the days to come, every time she recalled it, she would be able to smile a sweet smile of happiness.
Li Wanqing’s willow brows furrowed in silence.
Indeed, it was better for everyone to find out in advance!
One’s own daughter could not suffer this indignity for no reason!
Gu Guohua hugged Gu Qingying: “Baby girl, with mommy and daddy around, no one can bully you!”
In the distance, the Rolls-Royce came speeding by.
Gu Guohua said with some dissatisfaction, “How many catties do you have, and you’re already learning to be so flamboyant?”
“After all, they are children.” Li Wanqing let out a sigh.
The Rolls Royce came to a stop.
Chen Dong quickly got out of the car and walked towards Big G.
In the car, the three members of Gu Qingying’s family, also got out.
Gu Guohua took the lead and slapped the photo in his hand, on Chen Dong’s face.
“Chen Dong, this matter, how should you explain it?”
Looking at the photos scattered on the ground, Chen Dong’s jealousy and anger turned over.
But he knew that the most urgent task was not to get angry, but to let explain to Gu Qingying.
“Uncle, I’m sorry, it was just a normal and short meeting, and I didn’t know it would be used by people with ulterior motives.”
Chen Dong said with a solemn expression, incomparably serious.
“Huh, being used?” Gu Guohua sneered, “Used by whom? Are you trying to tell me that it was Wang Nan Nan who used you, asked you to meet her and deliberately took the photos so as to break up you and Xiaoying?”
Chen Dong’s gaze flickered and he was speechless.
Even if that was indeed the case.
But with Gu Guohua’s reaction, even if he said it, it would be impossible to be believed!
“Little Shadow ……”
Chen Dong wanted to walk towards Gu Qingying, but he was stopped by Gu Guohua raising his hand.
“Uncle, can you let me pass?” Chen Dong said almost pleadingly.
“If there’s anything, just say it here.” Gu Guohua was tough.
If his daughter had not stopped him, the first time he saw the photo that day, he would have come to question Chen Dong.
The Gu family had never been so stifled in their status!
Chen Dong choked a bit on his words and looked at Gu Qingying with eyes full of tenderness, “Xiaoying, you think so too?”
“Chen Dong, I need an explanation from you!” Gu Qingying tightly obliterated her red lips, her red and swollen eyes once again flooded with tears.
“The Wang family did me so much harm, and Wang Nan Nan even almost killed my mother, how could I still go back to the past with her?”
Chen Dong had resentment in his heart, at this moment towards Wang Nan Nan, towards the Wang family, all he had left was hatred!
“That day we met, it was because Wang Nan Nan was leaving the city, so I wanted to see her one last time, I ……”
“Oh? To meet one last time, so you went?”
Gu Guohua snorted, “Mouthing that the Wang family had caused you so much harm, you are generous enough to say meet for the last time and really went?”
Chen Dong instantly became anxious.
How could Gu Guohua be asking him to explain to Gu Qingying?
He was clearly pouring oil on the fire!
But he finally gritted his teeth and said, “Uncle and auntie, I’m sorry, I’m really sorry, I only thought it would be a simple meeting, I didn’t think things would become so serious at all.”
“Please believe me, I am serious about Little Shadow, I could never betray Little Shadow.”
With that, he pointed his backhand towards the top of Tianmen Mountain.
“There, tonight will be my promise to Little Shadow!”
“You brat is full of words, if you want to give me Little Shadow’s promise, why do you want to go see that Wang Nan Nan?” Gu Guohua was unrelenting, his expression angry.
Gu Qingying could not stop the tears from slipping down her eyes and snuggled into her mother’s arms.
Facing Chen Dong, Gu Qingying said breathlessly, “Chen Dong, is it so difficult to ask you to explain?”
Having been verbally squeezed by Gu Guohua, he now heard these words from Gu Qingying.
Chen Dong was on the verge of collapse.
With red eyes, he pleaded with Gu Qingying, “I’ve been explaining, do you believe me? Is it so hard to convince you for once?”
“What kind of explanation is that?” Gu Guohua angrily rebuked, “Empty words, who will give you proof?”
The words had just left his mouth.
Chen Dong’s body trembled and he roared, “Uncle, that’s enough! Are you asking me to explain, or do you want to break up Little Shadow and I?”
A thunderstorm of words.
Gu Guohua was frozen.
Li Wanqing’s brow furrowed to the extreme.
Gu Qingying even raised her hand to wipe a tear from the corner of her eye: “Chen Dong, is this how you speak to my father?”
Chen Dong instantly woke up with a start.
Knowing his slip of the tongue, he hurriedly apologised, “Uncle, I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have spoken to you in that tone.”
“That’s enough! Mum and Dad, let’s go back.”
Gu Qingying’s words instantly made Chen Dong’s eyes go black and he had the feeling of falling into the abyss.
By the time he came back to his senses, the three members of the Gu family had already returned to the car.
The big G turned around and drove off towards the mountain.
“Little Shadow ……”
Chen Dong’s face changed so much that his heart felt as if it was about to jump out of his chest.
He hurriedly chased after him.
But Big G was so fast that he could see that he was about to disappear into the night.
Suddenly, two strong beams of light came from the mountain path in the distance.
There was a crunch!
The two cars stopped at the same time as they were about to collide.
Chen Dong was startled and rushed over, but when the distance drew closer, he saw the people coming down from the cars.
He was dumbfounded.
After a short moment of dumbfoundedness, the heady anger that was still pent up in his chest exploded.
In an instant.
As if he was a man-eating beast, Chen Dong rushed towards the figure with red eyes.
At that moment, Gu Qingying in the big G also stepped down from the car.
Gu Qingying looked despondent and pale as she looked at the silhouette in front of her.
She smiled bitterly, “You made it!”
The one who came down from inside the car was none other than Wang Nan Nan!
Wang Nan Nan draped her long hair and looked at Gu Qingying with a complicated expression.
She was about to speak.
Chen Dong had already rushed up to the front.
Looking at Wang Nan Nan, all of Chen Dong’s anger seemed like a flood that had broken the bank, raging out.
A design, a conspiracy.
It had made all his hard work go down the drain.
It might even make him lose Gu Qingying.
This was no longer touching his bottom line.
Rather, it was brutally and roughly blasting his bottom line to smithereens directly!
“Wang Nan Nan, you are so insidiously calculating, coming here now to watch a show?”
Chen Dong grabbed both of Wang Nan Nan’s shoulders with a huge force, causing Wang Nan Nan to suffer pain and frown.
“Chen Dong, stop it!”
Gu Qingying chided with teary eyes.
Chen Dong’s body trembled and he turned around expressively, glancing at Gu Qingying in bewilderment.
Immediately afterwards, he came back to his senses.
He hurriedly explained, “Xiaoying, it’s really not what you think, it’s my fault for being overly emotional just now, but you really have to believe me.”
Saying that, he looked at Wang Nan Nan with red eyes.
“Your Wang family has harmed me for three years, do you want to keep on doing so? I’ve backed down enough from you guys every step of the way, why do I have to do this?”
At this moment, Chen Dong panicked.
His expression was flustered, and he was even a bit at a loss.
Even when Dingtai had been in great crisis and the building was about to fall, he had never been so panicked.
Because in his heart, Gu Qingying was more important than Dingtai, more important than everything he had!
Seeing Wang Nan Nan’s silence, Chen Dong almost growled, “Please explain to Xiaoying, please don’t hurt me so much ……”
In the distance, Kun Lun inside the Rolls Royce saw this scene and was dumbfounded.
Was this really the young master?
In his impression, Chen Dong was not like this!
Gu Qingying was stubbornly tilting her head up and wiping away the tears from the corners of her eyes.
“Enough, Chen Dong you do this, I feel disgusted instead, this is simply not the Chen Dong in my heart ……”
Chen Dong was dumbfounded, Gu Qing Ying’s words, as if a sharp knife, stabbed him in the heart.
He let go of Wang Nan Nan in dismay and staggered back two steps.
At this moment, it was as if his soul had left his body.
His eyes were hollow as he looked at the silent Wang Nan Nan, his eyes red and faintly glittering with tears.
A strong sense of hatred, but full of helplessness.
At this moment, the silent Wang Nan Nan finally moved.
She smiled faintly and looked at Chen Dong softly, “I am sorry, I am the one who has wronged you, I have come, to explain and apologise.”
Under the stunned gazes of Chen Dong and Gu Qingying.
Wang Nan Nan’s body suddenly went limp and she knelt down on the ground with a poof.
Her voice was calm, but it was filled with indescribable grievances and apologies.
“I’m sorry, because of a simple farewell meeting, my family took advantage of it and almost ruined your marriage proposal ceremony, please forgive me.
“I rushed here tonight to tell you everything and ask for your forgiveness.”
Originally, she did have to leave.
She had fainted on the spot that day when she learned the truth of what had happened.
After she woke up, she gave up the idea of leaving for the time being, because she knew that if she really left in one go, Chen Dong’s elaborate proposal ceremony for Gu Qingying would definitely come to naught.
It would even, because of her mother’s impulse, cause a rift between Chen Dong and Gu Qingying.
After waking up from her dream, she let go of the past on the verge of madness, intending to welcome the future.
To Chen Dong, there was no longer the same resentment as before, there was only guilt!
So, she stayed behind, just to explain herself tonight.
Chen Dong and Gu Qingying were frozen at the same time.
Chen Dong was not expecting Wang Nan Nan to come tonight to help him explain and apologise.
Was this really the Wang Nan Nan who was once as high and proud as a princess?
Gu Qingying was not expecting that the truth was really as Chen Dong had just said!
With this kneeling of Wang Nan Nan, all previous doubts had vanished!
What’s more, she knew Wang Nan Nan’s character well, if it wasn’t something that was false and made Wang Nan Nan feel guilty, even if Wang Nan Nan appeared here, she would definitely tilt her head up high and proud.
At this moment, Wang Nan Nan slowly got up, her eyes were a little red and she looked at Gu Qing Ying and said heartily, “Xiao Ying, you are really lucky.”
After saying that, she smiled sweetly, “I wish you all happiness.”
Then, she turned around and got into the car and sped off towards the bottom of the mountain.
Looking at the car that quickly disappeared into the night.
The resentment in Chen Dong’s heart had finally subsided.
Wang Nan Nan’s appearance had taken him by surprise, but the outcome was moving in a good direction.
“So …… was really just a misunderstanding?”
Gu Qingying’s voice rang out, soft and sticky, no longer as cold as it had been a moment ago.
Chen Dong stretched his hands.
“What else? To be exact, it was counted, it really was just a meeting and farewell, less than five minutes before and after.”
The words had just fallen.
The Gu Qingying in front of him suddenly jumped into Chen Dong’s arms and said with a sobbing voice: “Ooooooooooo …… you big fool, I’m so scared, so scared that you don’t want me anymore.”
In the past few days, because of the photo incident, Gu Qingying was in constant torment, and her whole body was in a muddle.
Now that the misunderstanding was cleared up, all the grievances were instantly vented out.
He felt the trembling of his delicate body in his arms.
Chen Dong felt a pang of guilt and he said heartily, “I will never betray you, don’t forget the promise I made to you.”
The night breeze was slightly cool.
The image of the two embracing each other fell into the eyes of Gu Guohua Li Wanqing in the big G car.
The couple let out a sigh of relief at the same time.
Li Wanqing scolded Gu Guohua, “Look at you, you were over-excited just now.”
“Blame me? Is it wrong for me, as a father, to care for my daughter?” Gu Guohua’s face flushed a little red and his eyes glared obliquely.
For a long time.
Chen Dong gently pushed Gu Qingying away and smiled as he pointed to the top of Tianmen Mountain.
“So, are you willing to follow me up the mountain now and let me propose?”
Gu Qingying blushed shyly, lowered her head and nodded silently.
Chen Dong was instantly overjoyed, taking Gu Qingying’s hand and sending her back to the big G car, he said seriously, “Everything tonight is for you!”
