After arriving at school, Zhong Qianqian waited for the class bell, and under the glaring stares of her classmates, she walked over to Leng Qirui with a grimace on her face.
“Young Master Leng, I apologize. Please spare the Gu family!”
Leng Qirui was deep in focus, memorizing the poem phrases for the upcoming exam. He heard Zhong Qianqian’s voice, and he looked up with displeasure.
At that moment, Gu Mingzhe entered the classroom and stood in front of Leng Qirui.
“Hello, Young Master Leng, I am Qianqian’s fianc, Gu Mingzhe. Qianqian might cross the line when speaking sometimes, and might have offended you. I brought her over today to seek your forgiveness. I know you are a courteous person, so please, do not take offense.”
Leng Qirui stared at the two figures in front of him with suspicion. They must be crazy, apologizing all of a sudden. Still now that they were asking for his forgiveness, how could he refuse?
“Young Master Gu, honestly speaking, do you know how I feel, seeing you and Zhong Qianqian together?”
Gu Mingzhe was affable. “Go ahead, Young Master Leng.”
“It’s like looking at a flower that’s – stuck on a piece of sh*t. Of course, that piece of sh*t refers to Zhong Qianqian.”
Zhong Qianqian, “”
Gu Mingzhe, “”
“Frankly speaking, Zhong Qianqian has neither the looks, nor a good figure, and with a useless brain to match it all. So nave. Young Master Gu, you sure have good taste in women.”
The other students burst out in laughter following Young Master Leng’s snide comments.
Zhong Qianqian’s face was red with fury, as if it was bleeding from Young Master Leng’s humiliation. However, she was willing to do anything to become the Young Lady of the Gu family, even if it meant enduring this abuse.
Gu Mingzhe however, was not upset. Maintaining his composure, he then replied, “Perhaps everyone sees various flaws in Qianqian, but to me, they are no big deal, and these flaws can be excused. Young Master Leng. I brought Qianqian over to school today to explicitly apologize to you in the hopes that you will forgive her past transgressions. If you suppose that a verbal apology is insufficient and you need some form of compensation, I will try to the best of my ability to do so on behalf of Qianqian.”
Gu Mingzhe’s words drew awe from the girls. With this admirable act, Zhong Qianqian was redeemed and saved from complete shame.
It was a good feeling, to have someone love and shield you like Gu Mingzhe did, especially in front of your classmates. Zhong Qianqian felt a little smug at that moment.
“Young Master Gu, you really are lovestruck. Alright then, I am not a petty guy. Although Zhong Qianqian is disgusting, she’s not my girlfriend. Now that she has a boyfriend of her own, then she had better stay as far away from me as possible. Just stop bothering Nuannuan, as she disgusts her as well. If not, I will personally give her a beating every time I see her. When it comes to that, do not blame me, Young Master Gu, for embarassing you.”
Gu Mingzhe immediately nodded his head in delight. He did not expect this to be so easy. “Very well, I’ll have her promise that she will not disturb Nuannuan or you again.”
“Qianqian, don’t you have anything to say?”
It seemed that Leng Qirui had already decided to forgive her, but Gu Mingzhe insisted that she expressed her apology again. Zhong Qianqian felt hurt because of that, and tears began flowing down her cheeks once more.
“Young Master Leng, I am sorry. Although I don’t know why you dislike me so much, and I don’t know what I’ve done to upset you this much”
“Enough! Since you don’t know anything, what the hell are you apologizing for? You must be Gu Mingzhe’s clown, and you’re here to disgust me on purpose, aren’t you?”
Gu Mingzhe’s eyes narrowed and his expression sank as he gripped Zhong Qianqian’s hand firmly, as if to remind her what they were there for.
