Chapter 58: What Are You Whispering About?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Grandma Gu was a little unhappy that Meng Nianyao didn’t answer. She glanced at Gu Wencheng and snorted.”What else can we talk about? What are you whispering to your grandfather in the study again?”
“What else can 1 say?” Gu Wencheng imitated Grandma Gu’s tone and walked to Meng Nianyao’s side.
Grandma Gu was amused.
Gu Wencheng smiled and looked at the time. “It’s getting late. Let’s go back first and come back another day.”
Unknowingly, the sky outside had already darkened. It took more than an hour to drive from the old mansion to Splendid Garden.
Grandpa Gu nodded. Sheactually wanted them to stay here, but felt that it wasn’t appropriate. She was mainly worried that Meng Nianyao wouldn’t be used to it, so she asked the servants to pack some snacks for them to take home.
When he left the old house, Gu Wencheng was carrying two bags of things that Grandma Gu had given Meng Nianyao.
Grandma and Grandpa Gu saw them off all the way. When they reached the car, Gu Wencheng put the things in the back seat and greeted them. “Alright, you guys should go back too. Take care of your health.”
“Grandpa, Grandma, we’re leaving,” Meng Nianyao said.
Grandma Gu nodded with a smile. “Alright. Come back with Wencheng if you have nothing to do.”
Meng Nianyao nodded.
Grandpa Gu stood at the side and finally said his first words to Meng Nianyao today, “Your grandmother likes to go shopping with you. If she has nothing to do, she will go over to accompany her, drink tea, and go shopping.”
Meng Nianyao looked at Grandpa Gu and nodded vigorously. “Okay, Grandpa.”
It was quiet on the way back, and soothing music was playing in the car. Meng Nianyao looked out the window at the night view and said, “Gu Wencheng, your grandparents are very loving.”
Gu Wencheng was driving and smiled.’They’ve been like this since I can remember. Grandma has a bad temper, so Grandpa has to accommodate her. The two of them take care to follow the other’s rhythm.”
Meng Nianyao tilted her head.
Gu Wencheng tapped his fingers on the steering wheel and said slowly, “People of the older generation mostly listen to their parents when they get married. Before my grandfather got married, he actually had a lover. In that era, it was a great thing for a girl to go to university. Grandpa liked her independence and freedom and wanted to be with her. Grandpa also told his family frankly, but Grandpa and Grandma’s engagement was set when they were young. At that time, Grandma’s family had an accident and her parents had passed away. She could only stay at her uncle’s house. Grandpa’s parents felt that if they broke off the engagement now, it would make Grandma’s life worse. Therefore, the family objected to Grandpa being with his girlfriend and forced him to break up with the female university student and marry Grandma, who had never gone to school.”
The music in the car was accompanied by Gu Wencheng’s faint and hoarse voice. Meng Nianyao couldn’t tell what she was feeling.
Gu Wencheng glanced at her and continued, “I’m telling you this because 1 want to tell you that love isn’t a necessity in a marriage.”
“What do you mean?”
“I know what you’re struggling with, but I don’t want to end our marriage until the day we can’t go on.”
Meng Nianyao was speechless. After a long while, she finally understood what Gu Wencheng meant.”You mean, although there’s no love between us, we can live together, right?”
Gu Wencheng didn’t say anything.
Meng Nianyao leaned back and allowed herself to sit in the passenger seat. She found it interesting. After experiencing Meng Haotian’s incident, she didn’t think she had the ability to love again. Gu Wencheng obviously didn’t believe in love either. The two of them were a perfect match.
“Sure,” Meng Nianyao turned her head and looked at Gu Wencheng.”Then I wish us a happy marriage.” 𝒇𝒓𝙚𝙚𝒘𝙚𝒃𝙣𝓸𝓿𝙚𝒍.𝙘𝓸𝓶
Meng Nianyao returned to work at the Gu Corporation, but the premise was that she would not be Gu Wencheng’s assistant. She would be transferred to the project department after the department recruited designers and set up a working group. freeweb novel.com
Gu Wencheng had no objections to this. He just wanted to keep her in the Gu Corporation. Before the project department started hiring, she would still be his assistant for the time being.
When she returned to work, the rumors about Meng Nianyao in the company were gone, and everyone avoided her like they would snakes and scorpions. Meng Nianyao didn’t mind. On the contrary, she felt that it was quite quiet..
