Twenty minutes later.

On the sofa in the living room of the villa, Gu Yuan and Gu Nian, mother and daughter, faced each other, sitting upright. It was just that Gu Nian’s eyes looked full of guilt.

Luo Xiu put the poured teacup in front of Gu Yuan, and Gu Yuan took it and waved her hand, “Don’t be too busy, sit down, I have something to ask you two.”

“Aunt Gu, please tell me.”

Gu Yuan swept over: “What’s the relationship between you two now?”


The first question that came up went right to the heart.

Luo Xiu didn’t speak but looked at Gu Nian. Gu Nian also looked at him at the same time.

Facing Luo Xiu’s eyes with a certain expectation and restrained emotion, Gu Nian twitched her heart, and she swallowed back the “shared rent” that was on the tip of her tongue.

After lowering her head for a while, Gu Nian whispered, “Boy, boyfriend and girlfriend.”

Gu Yuan: “——?”

Even after thirty minutes of mental preparation, Gu Yuan still felt her blood pressure rushing to the ground when she first heard the answer, and then soaring up.

She pressed down on the coffee table in front of her, resisting the urge to lift it: “When did it start?”

Of course Gu Nian couldn’t say last night, she stuttered for a while before giving up struggling: “It’s been a while.”

Gu Yuan: “So you didn’t mention it to me at all, and you just moved in together?”

Gu Nian choked.

Luo Xiu said at this moment: “Aunt Gu, please don’t misunderstand. There is a temporary problem with my rental contract. I came to Gu Nian to live here for a few days, and we are not cohabiting.”

“Then what I saw just now, didn’t the two of you come out of the same room?”

Luo Xiu didn’t even blink: “That’s Gu Nian’s room, I celebrated Gu Nian’s birthday last night, and went to the wrong room after getting drunk, and she didn’t chase me out.”

“No—— “

Gu Nian was a little anxious when she heard that Luo Xiu went into the wrong room. Just as she wanted to deny it, she met Luo Xiu’s eyes that turned back.

Gentle and firm dark brown, like the softest lake in spring.

Gu Nian slowly swallowed back the words and lowered her head.

Gu Yuan frowned slightly: “So you didn’t have a relationship?”

“Mom?!” Gu Nian raised her head in a daze, and her face turned red in a second.

Luo Xiu bowed his head calmly: “I respect Gu Nian. Until our relationship is approved by you and we formally enter into a marriage contract, I will not do anything to cross the line with her.”

Gu Yuan’s eyes relaxed a little.

Gu Yuan took a sip of the tea that Luo Xiu poured, and then put it back. She seemed to ask casually, “You’re an actor, aren’t you? As a parent, I don’t really like this career. It’s not discrimination, it’s just that while acting, there’s always some emotional involvement. You two can talk about it when you’re in love, but after a long time, there’s not so much freshness, maybe it’s…”

Gu Yuan didn’t finish her sentence, but she looked at Luo Xiu meaningfully.

There was no disturbance in Luo Xiu’s expression: “Auntie, please don’t worry, I will move behind the scenes at the latest before getting married.”

Gu Yuan leaned back unexpectedly.

Luo Xiu thought of something, looked back at Gu Nian, with a smile in his eyes, gentle and serious: “If Gu Nian is willing to marry me.”


Gu Nian was dumbfounded when she heard half of it, the topic had suddenly flown away without thinking to marriage.

And when her brain finished translating the second half of Luo Xiu’s sentence, as an ex-mom fan who had lost her qualifications and quickly became a professional girlfriend fan, she raised her head alertly.

“Move behind the scenes? How can it work? You can’t affect your work because of our life!”

Gu Nian didn’t realize that, as soon as she said “our life”, Luo Xiu was stunned in her sight.

A few seconds passed, then Luo Xiu suddenly laughed: “If it’s our life,” he bit the word heavily, “then I’m willing to give it my all, everything.”

Now it was Gu Nian’s turn to be dazed, then she slowly blushed.

Gu Yuan couldn’t stand it anymore, she secretly rolled her eyes several times at her worthless girl, and then she cleared her throat: “Hey, we can talk about career issues later… Luo Xiu, right?”

“Yes, Auntie, please tell me.”

“How many people in your family are there? What do they do?”


Gu Nian hesitated and whispered but was pressed back by Gu Yuan’s fierce eyes.

Gu Nian lowered her head, not daring to speak anymore.

After silence, Luo Xiu lowered his eyes and spoke.

“My biological mother passed away very early, and my father married later. I have a younger brother who usually manages a small business at home.”

“Small business?”

Gu Yuan guessed that he was self-employed, so she nodded and took her over without asking.

The interrogation lasted until noon.

Gu Yuan finished the conversation, got up from the sofa, turned around and seemed to think of something: “Tomorrow’s Mid-Autumn Festival, Luo Xiu, are you going home?”

Luo Xiu paused on the sofa, nodded: “Yes, I can’t accompany Auntie and Nian Nian, I’m sorry.”

Gu Yuan waved her hand: “It’s okay, family is important. Are you going to prepare this afternoon?”

Luo Xiu got up: “I’m going upstairs to pack some clothes and I should go.”

“Well, hurry up and go get ready, don’t worry about me being here.”


Luo Xiu nodded at Gu Yuan, and then went upstairs along the stairs.

As soon as he left, Gu Nian couldn’t help getting up and going to Gu Yuan’s side: “Mom, why did you drive him away? He just got up…”

“Where did I drive him away? Isn’t he who said to go?”

“Obviously, he just said it according to your words.”

“Okay, you, you’re not married yet, but you can only talk for him, right?”

Gu Nian choked and turned away with a guilty conscience: “His family treats him badly, and I’m afraid he will be wronged when he goes back.”

“Wronged, is there anyone who doesn’t go home for a reunion during the Mid-Autumn Festival?”


Gu Nian felt it was right after thinking about it and didn’t say anything more.

A few minutes later, Luo Xiu came downstairs with his suitcase and said goodbye to Gu Yuan in a gentle and polite manner. Gu Nian offered to send Luo Xiu out, but Luo Xiu refused.

“Don’t send me off, stay home with auntie.”

“But you—”

“It’s not like I won’t come back.” Luo Xiu’s eyes were full of deep and shallow emotions. After a long time of restraint, he just held Gu Nian’s hand and kissed her lightly on her lips, “Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, Nian Nian.”


Until the door of the villa was closed, Gu Nian still stayed where she was, her face as red as the big red lantern hanging outside the high gate of the villa yard next door.

Luo Xiu walked all the way out of the villa area and got into a low-key black car on the side of the road only outside the main entrance.

The driver came here after answering the phone temporarily, and when he saw Luo Xiu getting into the car, he asked, “Mr. Luo, should I take you back to Luo’s house?”

“No, go to the company.”

The driver was stunned: “The company employees are going on vacation this afternoon, together with the Mid-Autumn Festival tomorrow…”

“I know.”

“Don’t you, won’t you go home for the Reunion festival?”


There was a low laugh in the back seat.

There was a few more seconds of silence.

“That’s why I don’t go back, after all it is called family reunion.”

The driver was stunned.

After recovering, he sighed in his heart, turned the steering wheel and drove into the long, quiet road.
