Mr Gu’s First Doting Marriage - Chapter 40
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The following day…
The moment Xia Yangyang opened her eyes, a perfect face greeted her.
Her father owned Starlight International, and his most popular artiste was Chen Yu. He was also the pillar of the agency, and in his fans’ words, Chen Yu was the type of man who was born to bring disaster to a woman.
Xia Yangyang had met him once last year, and she had been utterly astonished.
He was the best-looking man she had ever seen in her life. A perfect gentleman and his looks and charm were unrivaled.
But right now as she gazed at Gu Qichen’s face, she felt that he was as good-looking as Chen Yu. Even his chin was perfectly shaped.
Her heart began to pound madly.
At this moment, Gu Qichen had already opened his eyes.
Xia Yangyang panicked when their gaze locked.
But she forced a smile to conceal her panic. “That… Good morning.”
Gu Qichen frowned slightly at her greeting. “I’m not that.”
Xia Yangyang corrected herself. “Mr Gu, good morning.”
“Yangyang, do we have to be so cordial?”
He had called her name so naturally.
This wasn’t the first time they had talked about this topic.
But Xia Yangyang just couldn’t get herself to call him hubby.
Besides, Gu Qichen was older than her by a couple of years. It wasn’t too appropriate for her to call his name.
A sudden thought struck her. “I’ll call you Uncle Gu then.”
She felt that it was perfect. She had gotten the inspiration from Korean dramas where the female leads had all referred to the male lead as Uncle as well. It sounded intimate and adorable.
Xia Yangyang had gotten off the bed. “Uncle Gu, I’m up. I have class this morning.”
Gu Qichen was speechless…
She was getting late and certainly had to skip breakfast.
Just when she was about to leave, Gu Qichen suddenly came to her with a bank card.
Xia Yangyang was surprised. “Why are you giving me this?”
Gu Qichen replied, “For your allowance. I will deposit money into this account every month. I’m busy, so you can use the money to buy something that you like.”
Xia Yangyang and Gu Qichen might be married, but until now, money had never been brought up.
Other than her staying in Gu Qichen’s house.
Xia Yangyang didn’t really like the arrangement. “I don’t need money. Besides, Everyone in school is talking about me being your mistress. If I take your money, wouldn’t I really become a kept woman by you?”
Gu Qichen frowned at her. “Everyone said that you’re my mistress?”
At first, Xia Yangyang didn’t want to tell Gu Qichen, but she had blurted it out unconsciously.
Gu Qichen asked, “Do you need me to settle it?”
Xia Yangyang replied, “Forget it. It’s just some random posts on the school’s forums. It will be forgotten in a few days.”
If Gu Qichen were to step in, it would cause even more trouble.
She glanced at the bank card and said, “I really don’t need money. So I won’t take this card. I have to go now.”
And with that, she rushed out.
Xia Yangyang had barely left the doors when Gu Qichen dialed a number. “Come to my office at 9:00 a.m.”
Xia Yangyang didn’t sleep much the entire night, so she kept yawning away the whole morning.
Finally, her class ended and she met Wen Xiaochu for lunch.
Wen Xiaochu studied Xia Yangyang’s appearance carefully. “You look tired and the dark circles under your eyes are obvious. Yangyang, you look like you had been over-indulging the whole night.”
Xia Yangyang was finally jolted awake and she almost blurted, “How did you know?”
But before she could respond, Wen Xiaochu seemed to remember something. “Sorry, Yangyang. I forgot that you broke up with Young Master Lu.”
At the mention of Lu Haotian, her heart would always be stabbed by a pang of pain. But for some reason, Xia Yangyang felt much at peace today.
She smiled at her. “It’s okay. Everything is over.”
