Shao Tianze had planned not to go home and simply told Gu Changle.
However, he hadn’t expected that Gu Changle would become unreasonable when she heard that he wouldn’t go home.
He couldn’t explain it clearly.
Shao Tianze said, “Read the morning newspaper.”
Hearing what Shao Tianze said, Gu Changle called a servant and ordered, “Bring the morning newspaper.”
The servant immediately went to get the newspaper after hearing Gu Changle’s command.
Gu Changle had been in her bedroom these days. Even when it was time to eat, she asked the servant to put the food on a tray and send it to the room.
Hence, she had never read the morning newspaper.
This time, Gu Changle suddenly asked the servant to get the morning newspaper.
So, the servant was a little stunned before quickly turned to get the newspaper.
Gu Changle had thought that there was nothing but some business report about the Shao enterprise on the morning paper.
She hadn’t expected that there was a report about her abortion when she opened it.
Furthermore, the report was somewhat true.
Gu Changle panicked in a moment.
Although she and Shao Tianze were intimate lovers, it had been a secret all these years because she was Gu Changge’s sister.
However, someone exposed the relationship between her and Shao Tianze now.
As someone who valued his reputation, Shao Tianze would never be with her when rumors were spreading.
Moreover, he did not want people to criticize him that he hooked up with his sister-in-law after his wife’s death.
He valued his reputation.
Therefore, when the news broke out at this time, Shao Tianze would surely try his best to deny it.
At least he would choose to distance during this period.
Thinking of this, Gu Changle immediately spoke to the other end over the phone, “I saw the rumors in the newspaper.”
“So, I won’t go home often recently. Obey Dr. Jiang. Rest and recuperate.”
Gu Changle’s lips were slightly whitish. She wasn’t willing to accept his arrangement, “I was adopted by the Gu Family. Do you have to do this?”
Everyone in Harbor City knew that Gu Changle was not a blood-related child of the Gu Family, but was adopted from an orphanage.
She was just an adopted daughter of the Gu Family.
Shao Tianze could understand the meaning of her words and said, “Even if you are an adopted daughter of the Gu Family, you’re still Gu Cheng’s daughter and Gu Changge’s sister.”
“If I dissolved the adoption relationship with the Gu Family, could you marry me?”
“It’s not good for you to dissolve this relationship.”
“Will you marry me?”
Gu Changle persistently wanted Shao Tianze to give her an answer.
However, listening to her persistent question, Shao Tianze changed the topic, “Take good care of yourself. I will go back to the Shao Family more frequently after the rumors subside.”
“I’m going to a meeting. I have to go. I’ll talk to you later this evening.”
He quickly hung up.
Gu Changle couldn’t say one more sentence to him.
She listened to the busy tone from the phone and felt a little sad.
She also felt a little uncomfortable and jealous in her heart.
He had a home but did not return. He avoided her to deny the rumor.
So, where would he go?
Would he see Song Yunjia?
It was reasonable. It seemed to be appropriate for him to be with Song Yunjia at this time.
Anyway, he was not willing to send Song Yunjia to jail. Even if Song Yunjia had almost killed her, he just ignored it.
Was he really tired of her now?
The more Gu Changle thought, the more frightened she would become. Holding the earpiece with busy tones, Gu Changle lowered her head and didn’t speak for a long time.
Shao Tianze’s indifference to her made her heart more and more anxious.
After a while, Shuang came toward her, “Miss Gu, it’s time to meet Miss Song.”
Reminded by the servant, Gu Changle then woke from the trance.
Then, she put down the phone in her hand.
“Prepare the car.”
“It’s ready, Miss Gu.”
Gu Changle nodded before she went to changed clothes, and then she left the house.
Gu Changle clenched her fingers all the way tightly. Shuang was beside her.
She watched every expression on Gu Changle’s face carefully.
Along the way, Gu Changle was distracted until Shuang reminded her that they had arrived at the Rose Garden.
Gu Changle came out of the trance.
Then she saw the beautiful iron gate of the rose garden.
She had visited here many times when Gu Changge owned this property in the past.
However, the house’s owner had changed since Gu Changge was dead.
She hadn’t expected that she would come to this house after its owner changed.
Song Yunxuan was already waiting in the greenhouse.
As soon as Gu Changle arrived, a maid of the Rose Garden led her to the greenhouse as if greeting a distinguished guest.
She hadn’t seen Song Yunxuan for a long time.
Song Yunxuan was drinking tea in the greenhouse.
Seeing Gu Changle coming, Song Yunxuan got up from the rattan chair and smiled at her, “Welcome, Miss Gu.”
She looked at Gu Changle peacefully and intimately on the surface.
In fact, she did not have any affection for Gu Changle.
She even felt happy because Gu Changle had fallen into a predicament presently.
The little happiness became lager when she saw Gu Changle’s pale face.
Gu Changle had felt that she had nothing to say to Song Yunxuan. Now that Song Yunxuan was sitting opposite her, she just nodded reluctantly and said frankly, “You said that you could help me get rid of Song Yunjia, so I came here to see you. Now I am in front of you, and you need to tell how you would do that, don’t you?”
“Don’t be so anxious, Miss Gu. Sit down, and we can discuss slowly.”
Song Yunxuan saw her face and knew that Gu Changle must have had a tough time recently.
Moreover, Shao Tianze might have begun to keep a distance from her to deny the rumors.
Hearing Song Yunxuan’s words, Gu Changle sneered coldly in a self-mocking manner, “What else do I need to say slowly? You are clear about these things, aren’t you?”
Song Yunxuan pretended that she hadn’t heard anything and looked at Gu Changle confusedly, “I don’t know what you mean.”
“It’s straightforward. I just meant that you have already known that Shao Tianze is treating me coldly.”
“How could I know such kind of thing, Miss Gu.” Putting on an innocent air, Song Yunxuan smiled slightly, “This is the family affairs within your Shao Family. How could I know as an outsider?”
“You do not know? Everyone in Yuncheng already knew that I had an induced abortion for Shao Tianze.”
Hearing what Gu Changle had said, Song Yunxuan wore a surprised face, “When did the rumor begin to spread?”
“Isn’t there a large report on the morning paper?”
“Which morning newspaper?” Song Yunxuan asked naturally.
Gu Changle was also attentive. Knowing that the news came from the magazine under Baoli Media, she said, “It was the magazines and newspapers of Baoli Media began to spread rumors. As their boss, don’t you know the headlines of your newspapers and magazines?”
Hearing Gu Changle’s complaint,
Song Yunxuan couldn’t help but explain, “Miss Gu, you’re wrong. Although I am the owner of Baoli Media, I also have many other businesses at the same time. I can’t know every piece of important news from all my companies. I am also angry that Baoli Media released this news without confirming. Don’t worry. I will help you solve this problem.”
Anyway, the newspaper’s spreading rumors would be resolved sooner or later. There would be no harm to make a guarantee to Gu Changle at present.
Moreover, this rumor was not only gossip. She wanted to use it for another purpose.
Song Yunxuan looked at Gu Changle and frowned slightly, “Miss Gu, you wouldn’t think I made Baoli Culture Media make the headlines about you, would you?”
Gu Changle nodded, “Wasn’t you?”
Song Yunxuan shook her head and smiled bitterly, “If you think so, you do me wrong.”
Gu Changle frowned at her.
Song Yunxuan explained, “Miss Gu, there are many matters in all my businesses, big or small. I don’t take charge of everything. As for the newspaper, I haven’t reviewed the news on by one.”
“If it is not you, then who…”
“If Miss Gu has to be suspicious, I would suggest you think about who will be the most beneficial after the spread of this rumor?”
Song Yunxuan’s words seemed to wake up Gu Changle all of a sudden.
Gu Changle froze for a moment and then said with frowned eyebrows and gritting teeth, “You mean Song Yunjia?”
Sitting on the rattan chair, Song Yunxuan didn’t answer Gu Changle’s question directly but said, “Miss Gu, please sit, and we can discuss it slowly. I think we may have to talk about this for a long time.”
Song Yunxuan’s words made Gu Changle suppress her anger and then sat on the rattan chair.
Seeing Gu Changle sit down, Song Yunxuan knew that Gu Changle had been attracted by her topic.
And she had already put the blame for spreading rumors on Song Yunjia successfully.
Naturally, those who had brains should know that only Song Yunjia would benefit a lot when Gu Changle was out of luck at this stage.
Gu Changle sat opposite Song Yunxuan.
Song Yunxuan told the servants at home to prepare milk tea.
And she also let the servants present some snacks.
Gu Changle had no appetite at all.
Song Yunxuan particularly asked the servants to serve Gu Changle’s dessert in the past.
It was a pity that Gu Changle felt uneasy in her heart and couldn’t even eat a bite.
Seeing Gu Changle in such a poor state, Song Yunxuan hooked the corner of her lips invisibly.
Then, she continued to talk to Gu Changle, “Miss Gu, don’t worry too much. Anyway, my elder sister can’t be smug for too long.”
Gu Changle’s eyes lit up when she heard Song Yunxuan’s words.
Capturing the change in Gu Changle’s eyes, Song Yunxuan slowly raised her lips, “Miss Gu, do you want my advice now?”
Gu Changle came here to listen to Song Yunxuan’s words.
Now that Song Yunxuan was willing to say, she naturally would listen intently.
She wanted to use what Song Yunxuan was about to say to rout Song Yunjia.
After seeing Gu Changle’s serious expression, Song Yunxuan said, “Miss Gu, if you want to cut the weeds and dig up the roots, you should deprive Song Yunjia of everything.”
Gu Changle looked at her, “She has lost everything.”….
“No, she still has a backing.”
