Mu Zhanbei was there, for real!Gu Anran did not think that the lie she had told to buy herself some time would come true.However, why was he there, at two-ish in the morning?When they heard that Eldest Young Master Mu was there, everyone in the Gu family tensed.Gu Minghao and Ye Shuixin immediately went out to greet him. Gu Weizi tidied her appearance before she, too, went to meet him.As for Gu Anran, she could not describe the anxiety in her heart. When everyone went out to greet their guest, she went back to her room instead.The Gu family was shocked when they saw Mu Zhanbei got down from the car.His body had a tinge of wetness, and his shirt and pants were severely wrinkled. It was apparent that they were dried after a soak in the rain.His short bangs looked a little messy on his forehead; it was a look that one would typically get if one got caught in a downpour.How on earth did Eldest Young Master Mu get into such embarrassing predicament?However, even though h
Gu Anran finally made her way downstairs, and she had applied full makeup on her face. One should not be surprised to see a ghost painting if the person had to put on makeup in a rush. She seemed to appear even more unsightly than when she had her usual 'smoky eye' look.The tensed Gu Weizi and Ye Shuixin could finally breathe in relief.However, Gu Minghao was dumbfounded, so he stood up abruptly in astonishment. "You… Why did you do this? Go and wash that mess off of your face immediately."She had looked great just moments before that, but for some reason, she had gone back to looking like a walking disaster again!That was a messed-up way to appreciate one's beauty!It looked like his daughter was irredeemable indeed!Gu Anran made her way toward them with a smile on her face. She seemed utterly unfazed by her nasty makeup."Daddy, why did you ask me to come down? I was getting ready for bed! I am exhausted tonight," she said with a smile."You…""Since you are tired, le
Mu Zhanbei chucked his thoroughly-soaked wet shirt aside. "What is it that you really want?" Gu Anran's breathing labored when she accidentally saw the clear outlines of his pectoral muscles.She looked away hurriedly as she would rather not see his attractiveness while he took off his clothes. He looked so sexy that she almost wanted to pounce on him."Eldest Young Master Mu, I know that I was wrong. I'll accept any punishment you have for me, but I also know that you don't really want to be engaged to me."He did not seem to like that at all. It was obviously a fortuitous mistake.She continued to say, "As for Old Madam Mu, I'll go and apologize to her. I'll make sure she knows that this had nothing to do with you.""So?" Mu Zhanbei threw his belt onto his shirt before he turned around to face her. "Are you rejecting this arranged marriage?""No, it's not that I want to reject it." Gu Anran knew that Mu Zhanbei was a proud man, and a woman's rejection would be a lifelong di
Sexy, alluring, and handsome!There was no doubt that he was a monster!Gu Anran could almost hear herself as she gulped nervously, but she would never admit that she still had feelings for that man even after two lifetimes.It must have been an illusion!"Eldest Young Master Mu, if you are angry at me for disrespecting you tonight, I will apologize and even accept any punishment you have in mind!"She leaned against the door as she tried to calm her tone.Mu Zhanbei simply glanced at her and then walked to her writing desk. He looked around the room."Alcohol?"Gu Anran froze and suddenly recalled that the man liked to have a glass of red wine daily before he went to bed.It was probably a force of habit, but she wanted to open the door to get a servant to bring them some wine. However, she withdrew her hands just as she touched the door's handle."I'm sorry, Eldest Young Master Mu, but we do not have wine here!" He would not be able to sleep without wine.Mu Zhanbei suffer
His cold tone and stern look caught Gu Anran's breath for a split second. She felt as if she would need half a day before she could get her breath back.Mu Zhanbei left, and the air of nobility that everyone worshipped went with him.Gu Anran finally understood the reason Mu Zhanbei went to her house that night, and it was to show her the boss in that relationship.He even told her that no one, not even the Gus, could bully her if he was happy. However, he could also destroy her just as easily if he was unhappy with her. He had likened it to pinching an ant to its death.He wanted her to know that he could manipulate her life!It was apparent that he was furious because she had used him to relieve the onset of the drugs in her body, and she even abandoned him in a remote place after that!Why was that bastard so petty?She had never known Eldest Young Master Mu to be that pretty in her past life.Gu Anran could not sleep that night. She was still trying to find a way to delay
"What did Eldest Young Master Mu want to tell me?" Gu Minghao immediately asked as he entered through the door.Gu Weizi had a sudden and inexplicable feeling of embarrassment. It was as if she had been played somehow.That bloody girl, Gu Arnan! Did she do that on purpose?"Nothing, Daddy, I'm just here to give Anran something to eat, so I haven't had time to talk to her yet."She thought that it would be wise for her to stay away and wash her hands off the matter. "Since both of you have something to discuss, I shall take my leave now.""Sister, didn't you want me to talk to Daddy about the matter with Eldest Young Master Mu? Why are you leaving now?"Gu Anran gave them her usual smile, and she looked as though she was naive and foolish. Gu Minghao had only wanted to know what Eldest Young Master Mu had to say to him. His words were like the imperial edict.Gu Weizi panicked and quickly said, "Of course not. That is between you and Eldest Young Master Mu, why would I have so
It looked like Gu Minghao had read his daughter's character wrongly. He had always thought that his second daughter was a gentle and kind person. That was why he had been so surprised to see the viciousness in her!"This is all your fault. You had failed to teach her well! Back then, you've also used all these dirty tricks to drive Qinger away from our home, and now you've taught your daughter to twist and distort as well. You've made her as dirty as you are!"He pointed at Ye Shuixin as his fingers trembled in great anger. "I didn't…" That unexpected slap shook Ye Shuixin to her core.Gu Weizi was bewildered too. Her father had struck her and her mother for the first time! However..."I was framed, Daddy. It must have been Gu Anran. She must have poisoned herself and then set us up for that!" "Are you saying that Anran would risk ruining her own face just to set you up?"Which woman would not care about her facial appearance? How could she say something like that?His daught
Gu Weizi had been slapped twice. Even though the swelling on her face had subsided, the red mark was still visible on her face.However, she was still a beauty. She still looked gorgeous, even with a faint red handprint on her face.Her status as Beiling’s Number One Enchantress was not a stigma. Gu Weizi was a gorgeous woman."Zhenan, Mommy, she... Daddy sent her away," Gu Weizi cried. Mu Zhenan was distressed when he saw the tears on her face.His goddess was gone, and so Gu Weizi became his favorite again. How could he stay calm when his woman was hurt?"What happened? Why did Mr. Gu send your mother away?""It was her!" Gu Weizi pointed at Gu Anran in the distance, and said hoarsely, "She ate something bad and got us into trouble.""My mother took the blame to protect me. Mommy was innocent."Gu Weizi fell into Mu Zhenan's arms as she sobbed, "Mommy did that for me. She has manipulated all of us."Mu Zhenan looked at Gu Anran again, and recognition finally dawned on him.
