“Pfft.” Zhong Qianqian was guffawing. She was so happy she wanted to scream.
Gu Mingzhe told her that he was nervous talking to her!
“Hesitations? Like what?”
Gu Mingzhe’s slightly upturned eyes gazed longingly at Zhong Qianqian. “Guess.”
Zhong Qianqian did not dare to just simply guess. Thus, she said in a reserved manner. “I don’t want to. It’s fine if you don’t want to tell me.”
Gu Mingzhe took two glasses of wine from the server and handed one to Zhong Qianqian. “Let’s toast to our meeting again five years later.”
Zhong Qianqian suppressed her joy. “Right, let’s toast to our meeting five years later.”
Gu Mingzhe took a sip of the wine and glued his eyes on Zhong Qianqian. He staredat Zhong Qianqian until she felt uncomfortable. When he saw that she was blushing, he said, “Qianqian, you’re so beautiful. I was stunned by you.”
Zhong Qianqian’s face was redder now. This was the first time she had been hit on by such an excellent man, so she did not know what to do.
“Even though I didn’t see you oftem, it seems like you’re always wearing this necklace. Does it mean anything to you?”
Zhong Qianqian was on cloud nine after being asked such an intimate question out of nowhere. She did not hesitate before replying, “It’s something that I’ve been wearing since I was small. My mom asked me to not take it off as she told me that it can ward off evil spirits.”
“I always thought that you’re Aunty Zhong’s daughter. However, I heard your dad say that you’re not her real daughter, but the daughter of him and his ex-wife?”
Zhong Qianqian did not want to be reminded of this. First of all, she was not that b*tch’s daughter. Secondly, she was afraid that Gu Mingzhe would dislike her because of this. After all, the outsiders thought that the only reason the Zhong Family could get into the circle of the aristocrats in Jiang District was because of the Jiang Family. In a way, they felt the Jiang Family were the true aristocrats. What if Gu Mingzhe did not like her anymore after she admitted that she was not Jiang Shuwan’s daughter?
Nevertheless, it was as if he could see through her. Gu Mingzhe reached out and pulled Zhong Nuannuan into his arms without warning. He held her tightly and comforted her, “It’s fine. Even if you’re not the child of the Jiang Family and could not get as much love as your younger sister, in my heart, you’re still the best.”
Zhong Qianqian felt that she was as blessed as a princess in a fairy tale while she leaned against Gu Mingzhe and listened to his steady heartbeat.
Suddenly, she felt his body tensed up. She lifted her head and saw that he was staring at something behind her back; He could not hide the shock in his eyes.
Zhong Qianqian turned around and her pupils dilated.
She clenched her fists as her hatred went through the roof.
This devious woman. She already had Chi Yang, but she was still flirting with Gu Mingzhe. She was so shameless!
When she saw that Gu Mingzhe was in a daze, Zhong Qianqian flashed him an exaggerated smile. “Nuannuan, Chi Yang, where did you go? I can’t find you anywhere.”
Without waiting for the two to answer, she introduced them to Gu Mingzhe. “Bro Mingzhe, this is my sister Zhong Nuannuan who was kidnapped by human traffickers and had been missing for many years. This is my sister’s fiance, Chi Yang. He’s the youngest army captain ever in Jiang District.”
Even though he had seen a lot of beautiful women in Emperor District, Gu Mingzhe was still shocked by Zhong Nuannuan’s looks. She was dressed to kill. After he came back to his senses, he smiled and said apologetically, “So, you’re Nuannuan. Congratulations on clearing your name and proving your innocence.”
Zhong Nuannuan replied flatly. “Thanks.”
