Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Shen Ying pretended to be shocked and covered her mouth.
“So youre not from Li City, Miss Qiao Youre from the countryside…”
She did not continue speaking.
As if she realized her mistake, she quickly apologized to Gu Zheng shyly.
“Im sorry, Master Gu.
I didnt mean to say that Miss Qiao is lacking.
I was just surprised to suddenly know Miss Qiaos background.”
Gu Zheng suddenly turned to look at her.
This was the first time he looked Shen Ying in the eye after entering.
The latters face was layered with a faint blush.
She thought that her words had attracted Gu Zhengs attention, and it also caused Gu Zheng to finally be annoyed with Qiao Xi.
Thinking about it, how could someone like Gu Zheng marry a sl*t like Qiao Xi It was rumored that the reason they got married back then was because Qiao Xi took advantage of him and forced him to marry her at the Civil Affairs Bureau.
Now that Gu Zheng knew about her unbearable past and background, he would surely disdain her, right
My wife did grow up in the countryside when she was young.” Gu Zheng nodded in agreement with Shen Ying.
Qiao Xi instinctively turned her head to look at him.
Shen Ying could not conceal the excitement in her heart.
Her brows moved slightly, and her eyes were gentle like water.
She looked at Qiao Xi apologetically and said softly, “Is that so So the rumors outside are actually true…”
Gu Zheng asked, “I heard that you grew up in Li City and were raised to be a young mistress of an upper class family”
Shen Ying was stunned for a moment.
She thought that Gu Zheng was interested in her past and quickly nodded.
“Yes, the Shen family values their childrens education, so Ive always been strict with myself.”
Just based on her background, she was much better than Qiao Xi!
Gu Zheng chuckled, but his voice did not contain any amusement.
Instead, it carried a hint of cold mockery.
“You have received strict family education since you were young, but you cant even meet the standards of being an assistant in Gu Corporation.
This makes me wonder if your brain isnt working well.
Of course, there are smart and stupid people in this world.
For someone like my wife, although she grew up in the countryside, she worked hard to become an international designer and set a new record in the country.
Countless people are proud of her.
“My wife is considered a smart woman, while you, Miss Shen, have been strictly educated since you were young but you dont even meet the requirements to be an assistant.
Youre just stupid, so stupid that your mind is filled with thoughts of climbing into a mans bed to serve him.
You reap what you sow.”
Gu Zhengs words were a little harsh, but Qiao Xi felt very pleased!
As a woman herself, she despised women who wanted to climb into a mans bed just because they were slightly pretty!
However, she did not expect a man like Gu Zheng, who was silent and had a bad temper, to say such things to Shen Ying.
She was even prepared to stand up for herself earlier.
In any case, she would not let herself suffer, nor would she let others scold her.
Shen Yings tears kept flowing down the corners of her eyes.
She was dealt a heavy blow by Gu Zhengs words and was on the verge of breaking down.
“Brother Gu Zheng…”
“Dont talk to such brainless people in the future.
Not only is it a waste of time but stupidity can be infectious.
Lets stay away from her.” Gu Zheng held Qiao Xis hand.
“Lets go see Grandma.”
Qiao Xi nodded.
Before she left, she did not forget to stab Shen Ying in the chest.
“Im sorry, Miss Shen.
My husband doesnt want me to interact too much with brainless people, so well be leaving first.”
Shen Ying clutched her chest as tears streamed down her face.
“Brother Gu Zheng… I… Im not…”
Before she could finish, she collapsed to the floor.
Madam Wang pounced on her in panic.
“Shen Ying, Shen Ying, dont scare me!” Seeing that Shen Yings eyes were filled with tears and she was so sad she even fainted, Madam Wang could not help but roar.
“Gu Zheng! Are you so heartless! You made Shen Ying so sad.
Have you forgotten the promise you made when you were young!”
Qiao Xi raised her eyebrows with interest.
A promise from when he was young
Madam Wang cried out loudly, “Gu Zheng, you promised to take care of Shen Ying for the rest of your life when you were young.
Now that you have a new lover, you dont want your old love anymore, right Poor Shen Ying is always thinking about being with you.
For your sake, she rejected countless outstanding men… When she heard that you had gotten married, she was so sad that she fainted from crying.
After that, she didnt want anything else but to stay by your side.
However, you said such harsh words to her.
Gu Zheng, are you even human!”
Unfortunately, Gu Zheng simply strode away without turning back.
No matter how much Madam Wang cried out behind him, he pretended not to hear her.
