Gu Nian clenched her fists, her eyes were red, and the words touched the string in her heart that she didn’t want to be plucked easily. She just called “Mom” and she was speechless.
Just because of the word “Yan Lu”, it kept twirling in her heart and on the tip of her tongue.
Gu Nian’s lips trembled violently, and Mu Lanshu also felt that she had said the wrong thing, her face was ugly, and she couldn’t say soft words to comfort Gu Nian.
She opened her mouth, but couldn’t make a sound for a long time, then she saw Gu Nian turn and run back to her room.
When Mu Lanshu got up and chased after her, she heard Gu Nian slamming the door.
Mu Lanshu chased to the door, felt entangled in her heart, but still took a deep breath and turned the doorknob. Fortunately, Gu Nian did not lock the door.
She pushed open the door and went in, inside she saw Gu Nian lying on her side of the bed, her body was bent into a bow shape, and her face was buried in her arms.
Mu Lanshu sighed, walked to the bedside, opened and closed her mouth several times, and then asked, “Do you still remember Yan Lu in your heart?”
Gu Nian remained motionless, and said in a muffled voice, “No.”
“No.” Mu Lanshu pursed her lips, hardened her heart and said, “It’s useless even if you think about him, he’s already dead. Nian Nian, you can’t be single all your life because of a man, right?”
Gu Nian curled herself up even more in silence.
Mu Lanshu simply sat down by the bed: “I really thought that Yan Lu was a pretty good kid. But who would have thought that he would… He is gone, and it has delayed you for so many years. What’s the point of being a police officer? Okay, it’s so dangerous. You’re a girl, listen to Mom, change your job, being steady is better than anything.”
“I won’t! My dad was also a policeman, and I want to be a good policeman just like my dad.” Gu Nian sat up, her fair and pure face full of determination.
“But your dad wasn’t—” Mu Lanshu raised her voice excitedly and stopped abruptly. Her face became unnatural for a moment, and then she slapped Gu Nian’s back, “You child, why are you so disobedient! Your father died early, not long after you were born, your father went away. It was just me who brought you up, am I not doing all this for your own good?”
“Mom, I know, but I like to be a policeman, and I like to help others.” Gu Nian whispered.
When Mu Lanshu mentioned how difficult it had been to raise Gu Nian over the years, her eyes became red, and tears rolled out.
While wiping away her tears, she said, “I know you like to help people, even if you do other jobs, you can help others. My biggest wish was to be able to raise you well. Now, my biggest wish is to see you get married. Nian Nian, your mother is old, who knows how many years I can stay with you? I’m afraid that after I am gone, you will be alone and have no one to accompany you. Just listen to your mother, okay? You like to work as a policeman, well, I won’t force you.”
Fortunately, Gu Nian was only a police officer at the police station now, and it was not her turn to do those dangerous things.
At best, it was to help catch thieves, catch cats, and remind residents of miscellaneous things about fire prevention and theft.
Mu Lanshu wiped her tears and said, “But, you can go on a blind date, right? Your aunt Su said that this time the man is a bank manager, 28 years old, with a stable career and his name is Zhou Zheng. It is because your own conditions are very good, so your requirements are a bit high, and you’ve been single until now. Otherwise, at this age, even if other girls are not married, they will have started talking about boyfriends. It is really not easy for your aunt Su to introduce him to you. Just to let me feel at ease, go and have a look, talk to the person, and behave well, okay?”
Seeing Mu Lanshu crying, Gu Nian felt uncomfortable. Hearing the blind date, Chu Zhaoyang’s face flashed in her mind inexplicably.
Gu Nian spit out a sentence: “Mom, I have someone I like.”
