After lunch, Gu Nian, who had planned to stay for a while, was “driven” out of the house by Gu Yuan in disgust.

Ms. Gu’s reason was very high-sounding: “Since it’s Respect for the Aged Day, let’s divide it evenly, giving half a day to the elders on both sides. Also, next time I ask you not to come, just don’t come. You should leave enough free personal time to your mother who is over 50 years old, understand?”

Gu Nian could only bid farewell to Gu Yuan dumbfoundedly, then send her downstairs to the mahjong room where the several retired ladies were used to gather.

As for the ladies who were immediately concerned after hearing the news and wanted to come out to see the Gu family’s new actor son-in-law, they were all stopped behind the door by Gu Yuan.

“Go quickly, go quickly.”

Through the palm-width gap in the door, Gu Yuan waved her hand at Gu Nian in disgust.

“You play less mahjong and pay attention to your health.” Gu Nian instructed worriedly.

“I know.”


Hearing the sound of footsteps disappearing along with the sound of the elevator running, Gu Yuan closed the door and turned to look at her good sisters: “You are so old, can’t you stand still?”

“Sister Yuan, you are too stingy. Let’s just take a look at your new son-in-law, we will not rob him.”

“That is as it should be.”

Gu Yuan curled her lips: “What is this about a new son-in-law? It’s something that hasn’t been fixed yet. Let’s talk about it when they really get married.”

“Why, are you not satisfied with the new son-in-law? How long has it been since he came here, and you drove him away?”

After Gu Yuan was silent, she shook her head and walked in: “He’s too high.”

“What’s too high, is he tall?”


“Isn’t it good that the conditions are high?”

Gu Yuan paused: “The families do not match, then what’s the matter?”

“What age is this, and you still have this old concept?”

“That’s right, I wish my daughter could find someone with good conditions, as long as he is nice to her, but unfortunately I can’t find one.”

Sitting at the mahjong table, Gu Yuan slowly touched the mahjong tiles and thought for a long time before she finally said: “He should be good to Nian’er.”

Lao Zhang next to her laughed and said, “Then you still want to drive people away?”

“Of course I have to hurry them away,” Gu Yuan frowned. “Young people don’t understand these things, but we parents have to understand. Which elders don’t want their children and grandchildren to be around their knees when they are old? You keep their son and don’t let them go when your daughter arrives home, how can they have a good face?”

Lao Zhang asked: “Then what do you do? Looks like you don’t want your Xiao Nian, she is just a child, what if she becomes unfamiliar with you after a long time, then you will regret it.”

“Once you have given birth, let them live.” Gu Yuan touched the mahjong tiles and smiled, probably with a kindness that Gu Nian had never seen before, “I can’t accompany her for the rest of her life.”

The table went silent.

After a while, the four ladies who were over half a century old tacitly resumed their daily talking and laughing. The mahjong tiles were knocked and bumped, and the table became lively, and no one mentioned this topic anymore.

Gu Nian originally didn’t plan to go back to the Luo family to worship the ancestors with Luo Xiu, but Ms. Gu deliberately reminded her before she left, so she was still thinking about this problem with a frown until she got in the car.

Then the voice beside her called her back to attention: “Don’t worry too much.”

“Huh?” Gu Nian turned around, “Why would I worry too much?”

Luo Xiu’s lips curved in a low arc: “Aren’t you considering whether to accompany me to Luo’s house?”

Gu Nian: “Ah, is it so obvious?”

Luo Xiu’s voice was gentle: “Don’t worry about etiquette and other issues, go if you want, and don’t force yourself if you don’t want to.”

Gu Nian hesitated, but asked Luo Xiu: “Then do you want me to go with you?”

This question made the car quiet for a few seconds.

Gu Nian didn’t wait for the answer. She turned around blankly and saw Luo Xiu smiling helplessly after the silence: “On the one hand, I will want to be with you no matter where I go. On the other hand, I don’t want you and the people from Luo family to have too much contact.”

“You don’t want me to have contact with them?” Gu Nian was taken aback.


“Why?” Gu Nian was thoughtful, “Could it be that your father or your grandfather will give me 10 million to let me leave you?”

Luo Xiu joked: “If they really do that, what will you do?”

Gu Nian frowned and thought for a while: “It seems that I can only work hard to earn 10 million and ask them to redeem you.”

“Then I’ll give you 10 million, can you redeem it now?” Luo Xiu couldn’t help but laugh and asked.

Hearing the teasing in these words, Gu Nian said with a serious face: “I am a serious screenwriter and I don’t follow the rules of you actors. Don’t tempt me.”

Luo Xiu smiled.

After the topic was over, Gu Nian stopped joking and said seriously to Luo Xiu, “I’ll go back with you.”

“Have you figured it out?”

“Well, I know you don’t like it there. It will be more difficult to go to a place you don’t like alone. It should be much better if we two go together.” After a pause, “As for the issue you are worried about, don’t worry, I will try to avoid coming in too much contact with them.”

Luo Xiu’s eyes flickered for a moment, as if he wanted to say something but stopped, and finally gave a gentle smile: “Okay.”

So in the end, Luo Xiu took Gu Nian back to Luo’s house more than an hour earlier than the agreed deadline.

Lin Yi, the butler who had received the news, was waiting at the main entrance of the Luo family. When he saw Luo Xiu and Gu Nian getting out of the car, he took the initiative and said, “Young Master, Miss Gu.”

Luo Xiu smiled gently: “Why did Butler Lin come out in person?”

Lin Yi smiled bitterly: “They have been waiting impatiently at the ancestral hall. He has urged me several times. As soon as he heard that you were coming to the house, he immediately asked me to come down to pick you up.”

“It’s okay, I’m not in a hurry,” Luo Xiu smiled lightly and turned to Gu Nian, “I’ll take you back to my room to rest.”


Under Butler Lin’s helpless gaze, Gu Nian finally said nothing and nodded.

Luo Xiu took her hand, clasped it in his palm, and then led the little girl towards the deep courtyard.

All the way.

Many servants of the Luo family heard that their eldest young master, who was dedicated to becoming a monk had brought back a girlfriend on the day of ancestor worship. They couldn’t help but be curious and made a special trip to see this young woman who could even seduce their eldest Young Master. What did the “female fairy” who had broken through to the monk look like.

Gu Nian felt uncomfortable being stared at, but she didn’t show it much. She still had a stern expression on her face. But she still took the time to sigh: “If I had known that I was here to walk on the catwalk, I would have changed into something that would not put me down.”

Luo Xiu: “It is still not putting you down now.”

“Really?” Gu Nian was suspicious and didn’t believe it.



Although she still didn’t believe it, it didn’t stop her from turning the corners of her mouth upwards.

Luo Xiu, accompanied by Butler Lin Yi, felt at ease only after personally sending Gu Nian to his private room.

Before leaving, Luo Xiu specifically stood outside the door and said: “Unless I come to see you, no matter who asks you to do something, don’t come out of this door, okay?”

Gu Nian raised her eyes, suddenly alert: “Is it so scary?”

Luo Xiu glanced at Lin Yi, the butler next to him, as if unintentionally and kindly. Then he lowered his eyes and looked at Gu Nian tenderly: “Just in case.”

Gu Nian thought for a while and nodded: “Yes, I remember.”

“You can rest on my bed. When the ancestor worship process is over, I will come back to you immediately.”

“It’s okay, don’t be in a hurry.” Gu Nian smiled, “I happen to be sleepy. If you come back later, I can still sleep a little longer.”

Luo Xiu’s eyes flickered, and a deep smile appeared in the corner of his eyes: “Then I should come back earlier.”


Gu Nian held it in, but her cheeks slowly turned red.

“Don’t think so wildly,” Luo Xiu chuckled softly and leaned forward. He held the half-open door beside the girl and his voice was low, “I just want to accompany you to sleep.”

Gu Nian: “…”

The evil dragon’s tail was almost swung behind him, only a fool would believe it.
