When Long Lao saw Gu Qingying crying uncontrollably, he was immediately distressed.
In his eyes.
There was indeed a gap between Chen Dong and Gu Qingying’s status and background.
In terms of status and background, the Chen and Gu families were not on the same line.
But Long Lao knew very well.
Chen Dong and Gu Qingying got married, not because Gu Qingying had “married into a rich family”, but because Chen Dong was lucky enough to be born.
Even though he was a slave of the Chen family, he had never wavered from this idea in his heart.
All along the way, Gu Qingying had helped Chen Dong with everything she had.
Now, by chance, he had met with something like this.
“Elder Long, is something wrong?”
Gu Qingying raised her hands to wipe her tears while forcing back her sobs and asked.
Elder Long returned to his senses, “Young Madam, your parents have arrived.”
Gu Qingying was startled for a moment, and then lowered her head with teary eyes as she pondered.
Elder Long and Fan Lu’s expressions changed at the same time.
At this time, what became of the family was all up to Gu Qingying’s mind.
The next second.
Gu Qingying raised her head, but on her tired pretty face, she squeezed out a sad smile.
“Elder Long and Sister Xiao Lu please go down and greet my parents for me first, I’ll wash up and come down.”
Elder Long and Fan Lu left the bedroom.
Gu Qingying wiped the tears from the corners of her eyes as she murmured.
“Gu Qingying, you have to fight na, you can’t let mum and dad find out, it’s you who wanted to choose him.”
“It’s okay, it’s okay, Gu Qingying, you’re strong, right? I’m sure you’ll be able to get through this on your own.”
“Mum and dad are so far away to see the baby, they can’t get angry.”
Taking a deep breath, Gu Qingying stretched hard and struggled to smile before walking into the bathroom.
Downstairs in the living room.
Chen Dong was greeting Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing.
Seeing Elder Long and Fan Lu coming downstairs.
Gu Guohua got up and joked, “Elder Long, what happened to you just now, why did you see us and run away instead?”
“There was some urgent business to get done, and I got confused for a while.”
Elder Long explained and smiled apologetically, “Please forgive me.”
Gu Guohua waved his hand with disinterest, his character was not so stubborn as to stick to this little matter.
Li Wanqing asked, “Dong’er, where is Xiao Ying?”
Chen Dong’s hand poured the tea with a slight lurch.
Gu Guohua hurriedly urged, “Yes, let Xiaoying come down quickly, we old couple want to see our little grandson.”
Fan Lu hurriedly said, “Madam, Young Madam has just woken up and is washing up.”
“This girl, she has no proper behaviour when she’s pregnant, she’s sleeping from morning to night.” Gu Guohua frowned, “How can she be so lazy, I’ll have to talk to her later.”
Li Wanqing frowned slightly and gave Gu Guohua a sidelong glance.
Chen Dong smiled faintly and explained, “Dad, pregnancy is already hard, so if Xiaoying wants to rest a bit more, just rest a bit more.”
At those words.
Gu Guohua smiled.
Li Wanqing’s eyebrows were also stretched, revealing a light smile.
As a parent, how could you say your daughter with your mouth, but how could you let go of her in your heart?
Everyone knew how tiring pregnancy was for a woman.
Chen Dong’s timely explanation did let the couple see how much Chen Dong loved Gu Qingying.
At this time.
Gu Qingying slowly walked down from upstairs.
Fan Lu was the first to notice and hurriedly went up to help.
Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing also hurriedly gathered around them.
Chen Dong’s heart set off huge waves and he looked at Gu Qingying guiltily, with anxiety in his heart.
Gu Qingying had obviously put on make-up, concealing the tiredness and puffy circles under her eyes.
“Mom and Dad, why didn’t you tell me in advance that you were coming.”
Gu Qingying said with a smile and a soft gaze, as if nothing had happened.
Gu Guohua said helplessly, “We thought of informing you yesterday, but you couldn’t get through on the phone, so we told Chen Dong.”
Gu Qingying’s eyes flickered for a moment, yesterday was a day she would never forget in her life.
She looked towards Chen Dong with her beautiful eyes and smiled sweetly, “It should be because I fell asleep yesterday and this big fool didn’t know to wake me up and then forgot about it.”
Chen Dong was stunned.
Panic flashed across his eyes.
Looking at Gu Qingying’s forced smile.
At this moment, he felt like countless sharp knives were stabbing hard at his heart, trying to tear it apart.
Guilt raged, and Chen Dong even felt a little dizzy.
He knew how much it really hurt for Gu Qingying to say this sentence now that she was suffering so much pain.
Kunlun visibly sighed in relief.
Fan Lu, on the other hand, glanced at Gu Qingying heartily.
Long Lao smiled bitterly and cast a sidelong glance at Chen Dong, having a wife like this, if the young master could still cheat on his wife, then was he also worthy of the Chen family’s headship?
With his experience, he had long since browsed through the 300 feet of the floating world and red dust, so he knew even better how much deeper love Gu Qingying’s demeanor contained for Chen Dong.
“Dong’er, have you really forgotten?” Gu Guohua glanced back at Chen Dong.
Chen Dong jerked awake.
After a deep glance at Gu Qingying, he was busy smiling awkwardly and scratching his head, “Yes dad, I really forgot.”
“You ah, you can’t be too busy with work.”
Gu Guohua laughed helplessly, he knew about Chen Dong’s recent affairs, so he was right to assume that he had forgotten because he was too stressed and too busy with work.
Because of Gu Qingying’s restraint, the atmosphere did seem to be happy and harmonious.
Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing didn’t notice the end either, chatting happily with everyone.
The night was getting late.
“With Mom and Dad around, Xiaoying shouldn’t sleep in a separate room from me, so I’ll just take this opportunity to explain to her properly.”
This was the thought in Chen Dong’s mind.
Only, what he did not expect was this.
Gu Qingying yawned and took Li Wanqing’s arm, “Mom, I haven’t seen you for a long time, I miss you, can you sleep with my daughter at night?”
Chen Dong froze, looking at Gu Qingying with a complicated expression, not even giving me a chance to explain.
Elder Long, Kunlun and Fan Lu were also stunned for a moment.
Li Wanqing glanced profoundly at Gu Qingying, smiled slightly and turned to say, “It’s not up to mum to decide this, we still have to ask your dad and Dong’er if they agree to it?”
“It’s fine, it’s fine, I’m happy to be free anyway.” Gu Guohua blurted out, prompting Li Wanqing to frown and glare.
Chen Dong squeezed out a smile, “Mum, I promise too, Xiao Ying really hasn’t seen you guys for a long time.”
“Good then, mum will stay with Xiaoying tonight.” Li Wanqing smiled warmly and dotingly stroked Gu Qingying’s head.
The night was late and quiet.
Chen Dong slept right next door to the master bedroom.
And inside the master bedroom, Gu Qingying was nestled in Li Wanqing’s arms as Li Wanqing gently stroked Gu Qingying’s hair.
Mother and daughter had maintained this action for a long time, and had not spoken half a word.
Li Wanqing spoke softly, finally breaking the silence.
“Little Ying, still awake?”
“Mm.” Gu Qingying answered softly.
“If you have something on your mind, say it to mommy, and if you want to cry, mommy will hug you.” Li Wanqing smiled, revealing a heartfelt look.
Gu Qingying’s delicate body trembled.
She looked up at Li Wanqing in shock.
Li Wanqing smiled gently and slowly said.
“It has been a long, long time since you needed mama to sleep with you, and you want mama to stay with you tonight, don’t you have something very heavy on your mind?”
Gu Qingying’s torso trembled.
Even though she was pretending to be strong, her eyes were still misting up at this moment.
“You were born in my mother’s womb in October, so I can understand your every smile and knit.”
Li Wanqing looked gentle, her right hand gently stroked a few strands of green silk in front of Gu Qingying’s forehead to behind her ear: “Your heart is in your heart, mommy can see it, if you don’t want to talk about it, mommy won’t force you, but if you want to cry, mommy will hold you.”
The gentle voice was so soft that Gu Qingying could no longer contain it.
She flung herself into Li Wanqing’s arms and wept.
Li Wanqing gently hugged Gu Qingying, her face full of tenderness as she painfully caressed Gu Qingying’s back.
In the room, only the sound of Gu Qingying’s sobs echoed.
At that very moment.
Li Wanqing’s mobile phone lit up and it was Gu Guohua sending a weibo message.
“What’s wrong with my daughter?”
“You can see it too?” Li Wanqing soothed while sending back a message.
“Nonsense! Our daughter is the apple of our eye, what kind of reaction does she have, can’t I, as a father, see it? Why else would I have casually agreed just now.”
Li Wanqing smiled faintly and sent back a message.
“She has already made a family with Dong’er, she doesn’t want to talk about it, so we can’t ask more.”
“What if my daughter holds it in so much and suffocates herself?”
“If we interfere too much, it will only make this little family of the two of them, even more tiring.”
Li Wanqing replied with a message, then put down her phone and stopped paying attention to Gu Guohua.
She knew that Gu Guohua was most distressed by Gu Qingying, but she was also clear that it was not the right time to interfere too much.
Between husband and wife, friction and frustration were inevitable.
What one family can work out well, two families can get involved together, and when the time comes, it is not something that the couple can influence.
In the end, Gu Qingying still did not tell Li Wanqing.
The two of them were so tired of crying that Gu Qingying fell asleep in Li Wanqing’s arms.
There was no talk all night.
Early the next morning.
Chen Dong opened the door.
He had not slept all night, making him a little tired, and his eyes were a little dark.
When he arrived downstairs, Gu Qingying was already eating breakfast with Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing.
“Honey, today I want to accompany mum and dad for a stroll around.” Gu Qingying suddenly smiled and said to Chen Dong.
Chen Dong froze for a moment, he hadn’t seen Gu Qingying smile for a few days.
A few short days, but it gave him the feeling of several long years.
“Good, let Brother Kunlun and Sister Xiao Lu accompany you later.” Chen Dong nodded his head.
After breakfast, Gu Qingying and the others were the first to leave the villa.
Chen Dong looked at the car driving out of the villa with a complicated expression.
Long Lao walked to Chen Dong’s side and said softly, “Young master, grab the time to explain to young madam, old slave’s heart hurts when he sees young madam like this.”
“Why am I not heartbroken?” Chen Dong smiled bitterly.
Rubbing his tired face, Chen Dong headed to Din Tai Co.
It was a natural scenic area in the suburbs of the city.
The mountain had fresh air and pleasant scenery.
Many people came to climb the mountain on weekdays to enjoy the scenery, and it was even more popular on weekends.
The Rolls-Royce pulled up at the roadside.
After getting out of the car, Gu Qingying smiled and held Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing’s hands: “Mom and Dad, I don’t think you’ve come to climb Mount Sishui for a long time, right?”
“It’s been years.”
Gu Guohua lamented, subconsciously looking at his own blossoming figure and hesitantly said, “Little Ying, are you really sure you want to take Dad to climb the mountain?”
“Yeah.” Gu Qingying smiled sweetly.
Li Wanqing pinched Gu Guohua’s arm, “You father, when your daughter wants to climb a mountain, can you still refuse with your big belly? It’s not like Mount Suribachi is steep, it’s the right thing to do for you to lose weight.”
Gu Guohua sucked in cool air backwards while grimacing and agreeing.
Kunlun and Fan Lu fell at the end, looking at the three Gu Qingying who were happily walking towards Mount Suribachi.
Kunlun shook his head helplessly, “It’s so uncomfortable to watch the young lady like this.”
“I really don’t know how on earth she can resist with this thin body.” Fan Lu was also heartbroken.
Everyone knew it was a misunderstanding.
But what Gu Qingying had endured as a result of the authorities was far beyond anyone’s imagination.
But to be able to pretend that nothing was wrong in front of their parents, Kunlun and Fan Lu both had a hard time in their hearts.
It was also just as the five of them were heading towards the top of Mount Suribachi.
Halfway up the mountain.
“Grandpa, Chen Dong and his family are like that, why do we need to wait? It’s better to go straight away, you’re lucky, all the anger you’ve suffered, and you still have the heart to come climbing the mountain today, you even postponed your trip back to the Hong Society.”
Ye Linglong complained as she walked.
Mount Si Shui was not steep and suitable for exercise, and this amount of exercise for climbing was easy for her.
But when she thought of what happened to her at the Chen family yesterday, Ye Linglong was furious.
How great an honour was it for the Hong Society Ancestor, the Hong Society Red Stick, to personally apologise and make amends at the door?
On the contrary, she was actually driven away by Chen Dong’s servants and even threatened with words!
This was the first time she had ever been angry since she was a child!
“Linglong, there are some things you don’t understand.”
Ye Yuanqiu laughed and looked at Ye Linglong’s angry look and said, “Your straightforward character needs to be changed, otherwise you will suffer in the future.”
“I will beat up whoever makes me suffer!”
Ye Linglong waved her fist fiercely as if she was a little tiger.
Ye Yuanqiu I shook my head helplessly, this was from childhood, spoiled by him and the Hong Society’s group of people.
But yesterday I didn’t see Chen Dong, which made Ye Yuanqiu a bit lost.
Chen Dong has just joined the Hong Society, the most urgent thing is to draw closer relations.
If he left like that, what was the point of inviting Chen Dong into the Hong Kong Association or not?
That was why Ye Yuanqiu had postponed his trip, intending to stay for a few more days to meet Chen Dong properly before returning to the Hong Society.
To pass the time, he had only asked Ye Linglong to look for nearby attractions, intending to take a tour.
“Grandpa, I heard that Mount Suribachi is full of chrysanthemums, it’s the time when they are in full bloom, it should be very beautiful.”
Ye Linglong suddenly said.
Ye Yuanqiu smashed his lips for a moment, “It’s this season, the time is just right.”
The two grandparents walked quickly towards the mountain.
Gu Qingying looked happy, her face like a flower, always showing a smile.
Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing were also happy, but every now and then they looked at each other, but they could see the sadness in each other’s eyes.
Gu Qingying was pretending to be happy, and the couple was pretending to be happy too.
But no one poked through this layer of goodwill.
Kunlun and Fan Lu followed close behind, witnessing the scene, their hearts always hard to speak.
“Mom and Dad, we’re almost at the top of the mountain, it’s full of chrysanthemums these days, it’s going to be beautiful.”
Gu Qingying pulled Gu Guohua and Li Wanqing along and couldn’t help but quicken her pace.
Gu Guohua was startled: “Oh my baby girl, slow down, you’re pregnant with a baby.”
But instead of slowing down, Gu Qingying went faster.
Soon, the group of five arrived at the top of the mountain.
As far as the eye could see, the sea of flowers was lush and fragrant.
Even in the morning, there were many people in the sea of flowers, enjoying the flowers and taking photos.
The three members of Gu Qingying’s family were so amazed by the sea of flowers in front of them that they let out a “wow”.
But at that moment.
An old voice suddenly rang out.
“When autumn comes on the eighth day of the ninth month, a hundred flowers will be killed after my flowers bloom.”
The low chant carried a domineering meaning.
But this voice rang out at the same time.
The smile on Gu Qingying’s face disappeared abruptly.
Fan Lu’s face changed drastically and subconsciously grabbed Kunlun’s arm.
In a low voice, she said, “Brother Kunlun, something is going to happen!”
