“Nuannuan, this is my friend, Bro Mingzhe.”
“Hello. I’m Gu Mingzhe. We’ll see each other often in the future. Since you’re Qianqian’s sister, just call me Bro Mingzhe like her.”
“Why will you see Nuannuan often in the future? Nuannuan already has a fiance. Chi Yang and my sister are very close.” Even though she knew she should not say that, Zhong Qianqian could not suppress the anger in her heart.
“Because I’m going after you. If I fail, I’ll have to ask for support in the form of Nuannuan. If I succeed, Nuannuan will be my sister-in-law. So, no matter how I look at it I’ll still be seeing her a lot.”
Gu Mingzhe’s sudden confession shocked Zhong Qianqian. She held back a scream that was threatening to escape from her throat. Then, she glared at Gu Mingzhe while pouting playfully.
Zhong Nuannuan looked at Zhong Qianqian and smiled lightly. “Looks like you won’t be needing my help, Brother-in-Law.”
Zhong Qianqian’s heart melted when Zhong Nuannuan referred to Gu Mingzhe as her brother-in-law.
This was the first time a man had chosen her and not Zhong Nuannuan after seeing the two sisters. This person was even the young master of the Gu Family from Emperor District.
“Sis, we still have guests arriving, but have fun with brother-in-law.” After Zhong Nuannuan said that, she left while holding Chi Yang’s hand.
“Bro Mingzhe, please don’t take it to heart. Nuannuan was kidnapped when she was three. She grew up in the mountains, so when she came back, my parents spoilt her. She was not taught about manners so please don’t be mad at her.”
“I won’t. I think Nuannuan is quite impressive. She has the demeanor of an influential person.”
Zhong Qianqian was not happy that Gu Mingzhe was praising Zhong Nuannuan, and she did not know what to say. Who would have expected Gu Mingzhe to flirt with her out of nowhere. “After all, she’s my future sister-in-law. It might be a good thing.”
Zhong Qianqian laughed after being teased by him.
She felt happy and grounded when she was with Gu Mingzhe.
Zhong Nuannuan was confused by Chi Yang’s behaviour. His aura was icy ever since he saw Gu Mingzhe.
“Stay away from him.”
Zhong Nuannuan lifted her eyebrow. “He likes Zhong Qianqian, not me.”
This person was her brother-on-law in her previous life. After Zhong Qianqian became the miss of the Nangong Family, she lost all interest in him. Furthermore, she found out that Gu Mingzhe identified her from the jade necklace and stopped her before she could rise to an even higher social status. As a result, she felt that she was being cheated so she kicked him away immediately.
They got a speedy divorce after this. Since she had an uncle from the Nangong Family that loved all of his nieces like they were treasures, Gu Mingzhe could not do anything to her and had no choice but to agree to the divorce. The Gu Family was even boycotted by the Nangong Family; they could not survive in Emperor District and they swiftly fell from grace.
Meanwhile, Zhong Qianqian did everything to try to win back the powerful Chi Yang after her divorce. Chi Yang refused to get a divorce, so Jiang Shuwan instructed her to drug Chi Yang’s tea. This was what eventually caused her and Chi Yang’s death.
Thus, Zhong Nuannuan did not have any worries about Gu Mingzhe possibly liking her. After all, Gu Mingzhe had been crazy about Zhong Qianqian in her previous life.
“He seemed to have been chasing after Zhong Qianqian, and when hhe looked at Zhong Qianqian, it was as if he was evaluating his advantages cautiously. However, when he lookd at you, his eyes seemed shocked.” In addition to this, there was an infatuation that he simply could not hide. However, Chi Yang did not add this.
