Of course, Fu Jingting knew that he had no ill intentions, and she even knew that this man had been waiting for her, but what had happened back then, had happened. She couldn’t convince herself that it didn’t happen and continue to be with him. She couldn’t do it.
Fu Jingting didn’t speak, she turned around and was about to leave, Gu Bowen subconsciously grabbed her wrist, “Jingting, can you really not forgive me?”
His tone was sad, and even if Fu Jingting didn’t look back, she knew that he had a sad expression on his face at this moment. The expression on her face also became sullen, dull pain came from her heart, her body froze slightly, but she didn’t turn around, “Yes”.
One word, completely unequivocal.
Gu Bowen’s hand that had been holding her slid down weakly. Fu Jingting looked at the shadow on the ground, something flashed in her eyes, and she left without saying anything.
Shen Qinglan and Fu Hengyi turned a corner and went to the other side of the compound before Fu Jingting saw them.
“Aunt and uncle?” Shen Qinglan hesitated.
Fu Hengyi shook his head, “I don’t know about this either. Grandpa forced the two of them and asked them many times, but neither of them would say anything. Except for the parties involved, no one knows what happened.”
“It can be seen that they care about each other very much.” Shen Qinglan said, even though Fu Jingting kept her face cold, there were several dishes on the lunch table that seemed to be uncle’s favourites. They still remembered each other’s preferences.
“Qinglan.” Fu Hengyi suddenly called her.
Shen Qinglan raised her eyes.
He looked into her eyes with a serious expression, “If there is anything between us in the future, we must say it, and don’t hide it from each other.”
Shen Qinglan was stunned, her eyes flashed quickly, and finally she slowly nodded her head.
Fu Hengyi smiled and held her in his arms.
Shen Qinglan leaned on his chest with an inexplicable expression, Fu Hengyi, if one day you knew about my past, would you still treat me like this? Can I tell you everything?
She closed her eyes, covering her emotions.
Tomorrow would be New Year’s Eve. Shen Qinglan went to the teahouse two days ago, gave benefits to the employees, and also gave them a holiday.
She took over this teahouse half a month ago. Although she didn’t go there often, she still went there once a week. Mr. Fu knew that she had bought this teahouse and had been there twice with her. He liked it very much. He was a frequent visitor there, and he often went to teahouse with Grandpa Shen.
There were a lot of old people like the old man who were idle at home after retirement, and the two had met a few like-minded friends because of this.
Early in the morning, Fu Hengyi went into the study. When Shen Qinglan walked in, he was sitting at the desk and writing a couplet, with black characters on a red background, it looked so powerful. For the first time, Shen Qinglan got to know that Fu Hengyi could write calligraphy, and he wrote it so well. It was beautiful.
“How is it?” Fu Hengyi asked with a smile when he saw that it was her. He was wearing home clothes, and his body had lost the sternness which he had while he was wearing a military uniform.
Shen Qinglan looked carefully, and nodded, “Very good.”
She didn’t easily praise others, and such an answer was obviously the greatest affirmation.
Fu Hengyi smiled. Ever since he knew how to pick up a pen, he was led by Mr. Fu to write calligraphy. Even in the few years of studying abroad, he never fell behind. It couldn’t be said that he was better than everyone, but he could still beat some people.
“Go get the glue and let’s paste the couplets together.” Fu Hengyi ordered naturally.
“Where is the glue?”
Fu Hengyi didn’t lift his head, “In the second drawer over there.”
Shen Qinglan obeyed and found the glue, then she picked up the pair of couplets, “This one is to be pasted on the door, right?”
Fu Hengyi wrote the last stroke, and kept the brush away, then he left the couplet to air dry.
“Well, these couplets are supposed to be posted downstairs.” He picked up the other two and went downstairs with Shen Qinglan.
Mr. Fu went out with the guards early in the morning, and he didn’t know where he went, and Fu Jingting was not there either.
“A little higher.” Shen Qinglan stood in the yard and looked at Fu Hengyi and said.
Fu Hengyi held a couplet in his hand and gestured on the gate, “Now?”
Shen Qinglan took a step back and looked carefully, “A little to the left.”
Fu Hengyi’s hand moved to the left.
Fu Hengyi pasted the couplet.
Shen Junyu and Shen Xitong saw the scene when they came over. Shen Junyu’s eyes and brows were full of smiles, but Shen Xitong almost bit her lips, especially when she saw Fu Hengyi’s smiling eyes when he looked at Shen Qinglan. At that time, a mouthful of blood was stuck in her throat.
“You two are abusing dogs here early in the morning, aren’t you afraid of me knocking you down with a stick.” Shen Junyu teased with a smile.
Fu Hengyi glanced at him, withdrew the smile on his face, and said lightly, “If you don’t want your hand anymore, you can try.”
“You treat me like this, be careful or I’ll ask my sister to ignore you.”
His eyes were full of accusations, but Fu Hengyi didn’t even look at him, took the other half of the couplet in Shen Qinglan’s hand, and continued to paste it.
“Brother, what are you doing here?” Shen Qinglan asked, but she didn’t want to see Young Master Shen’s grief-stricken eyes, which were really hot.
Shen Junyu just remembered some serious business, and coughed, “Well, Dad is back today, so I came to ask you two to go home for lunch at noon.”
“You didn’t need to run over to talk about this? You could’ve just called.”
Seeing the meaning in Shen Qinglan’s eyes, Shen Junyu spread his hands, this had nothing to do with him, it was someone else who wanted to follow him.
Shen Qinglan: “You couldn’t call?”
Shen Junyu: “Can’t I go out for a walk?”
Shen Qinglan looked away as if she didn’t want to look at him, he was disliked by his own sister, so Shen Junyu was a little hurt, and while looking at Shen Xitong he felt more and more unpleasant.
“The message has been delivered, we are going back.” Shen Junyu said.
“Brother,” Shen Xitong stopped him, she didn’t want to leave, she finally saw Fu Hengyi, and she wanted to stay for a while, “Isn’t sister posting couplets, let’s help her.”
“You are sweet, what would we two big bulbs do here, you don’t think you had enough dog food?”
His eyes fell on her body with a coolness, like a needle piercing her, Shen Xitong’s expression stiffened, and she looked embarrassed, “I was just thinking that it will be faster if there are more people to help, and then we can directly go back together.”
“That’s the fun between a young couple. You are an outsider who cares too much, let’s go back.” Shen Junyu said coldly.
Turning hwe head to look at Shen Qinglan, her expression was now gentle, “Brother, let’s go back first, you can come over early at noon.”
Shen Qinglan nodded, indicating that she knew, looking at the back of Shen Xitong who reluctantly followed Shen Junyu and left, her eyes crossed over to have a chill.
After all the couplets and window grilles were pasted, Shen Qinglan called Mr. Fu and learned that he would not come back for lunch at noon, so she informed Aunt Zhao and left.
