Gu Lanshan turned her head only to see Gu Jingyu whom she had not seen for many years. She did not know how long he had been standing at the entrance.
Mu Wanqing immediately stood up.
Then, Lin Che followed.
Gu Xiande froze before fidgeting slightly.
Everyone saw Gu Jingyu looking in but could not see his expression clearly. After a moment of silence, he took a step forward and continued walking in step by step.
“It’s Gu Jingyu.”
“I can’t believe it’s actually Gu Jingyu.”
“Why is he here today? Did he come here to bury the hatchet?”
Everyone watched Gu Jingyu walk all the way to the main table. Gu Xiande looked at him through narrowed eyes. Gu Jingyu paused and glanced at the people around the table. Then, he slowly shifted his gaze to Gu Xiande.
“Grandfather, happy birthday.”
Gu Xiande’s eyes moved slightly. The agitation in his eyes appeared on his aged face.
He stood up, skirted around the table, and came directly before Gu Jingyu.
He immediately pulled Gu Jingyu’s hand to him and patted the back of it for a long time. Then, he said, “Jingyu, it’s good that you’re back. I’m very happy. My birthday today is a very happy one.”
Everyone was even more surprised. But when they thought about it, no matter how bad their relationship was, he was ultimately his biological grandson. No matter what, he would still have a soft spot for him.
However, Gu Xiande had always been a stubborn person who never changed his mind and left no room for argument. Everyone had thought that he would not easily give in this time either.
Perhaps it was because ultimately, he had aged. Because he was older now, he had a different way of thinking than he did in the past.
Gu Jingyu said, “Grandfather, this is my present for you.”
Gu Xiande quickly took it from him and opened it. It was a small cigarette holder that looked small and exquisite but was very beautiful.
Gu Jingyu said, “I remember breaking one when I was younger. Grandfather didn’t say anything about it either. I guess you can think of this as me returning it to you.”
“Yes. You were the most mischievous one when you were young. I can’t even begin to count the number of things you broke.”
“Yes, yes. In the future, I’ll slowly return everything to you.”
“Good, good. Return everything to me slowly. I’ll wait for you to do it. Come, quick. Come in and sit down.”
However, after looking around, Gu Jingyu headed directly for the seat beside Lin Che’s.
Everyone looked on in surprise as Gu Jingyu smiled at Lin Che.
Lin Che was still stunned. She did not expect Gu Jingyu to actually come.
Gu Jingyu smiled at Lin Che after sitting down. “Why? Have you gone silly?”
“Why are you here?”
“Weren’t you the one who told me to come here?”
“I… I did say that.”
“Yes. I thought about it. Since a person as stupid as you can understand it, of course, I can’t lose to you. That’s why I came.”
Gu Xiande saw the two of them unexpectedly having a conversation. He looked at them and asked, “Did you two already know one another?”
Gu Xiande did not really like the entertainment industry, so he had never looked at any news articles. The rest of the family knew that he did not like it and naturally did not tactlessly talk about it.
Gu Jingyu said, “Of course. Grandfather, I’m good friends with Second Sister-In-Law. Are you only finding out about it now?”
“Eh… yes, yes. I’m old now, I’m old now. I can’t keep up with the trends of you young people. Come here and take a look, Jingyu. Little Che even gave me a family portrait earlier and then you came.”
Gu Jingyu turned to look at it. When he saw the family portrait, many emotions coursed through him.
“Let’s take a family portrait in the future.”
“Sure. When all of you are free, we’ll go to the back and take a photo later.” Gu Xiande looked at Lin Che and smiled. He patted the seat beside him and said, “Jingyu, sit here. Little Che, sit on my other side.”
The people down below were stunned a second time.
Gu Xiande smiled happily and looked around the table. Then, he looked at Gu Jingyu and Lin Che beside him. A rare expression of benevolence appeared on his face.
As a result, everyone present sensed that Old Master was in a very good mood today.
From time to time, he said a few words to Lin Che and then to Gu Jingyu. It was such a heartwarming scene. Other people could not join in the conversation even if they wanted to. Gu Xiande merely smiled while looking at his grandchildren. He looked at Gu Jingze and squinted his eyes as if saying, Jingze, you indeed found a good wife.
He was smart, so of course, he knew that Lin Che must have privately persuaded Gu Jingyu to come back this time.
Mo Huiling watched from where she was and momentarily wanted to join in the conversation. However, she was completely unable to even say a word. She could only watch Lin Che sit beside Gu Xiande while happily chatting with him. Gu Jingyu was also very close to her and would casually speak to her from time to time. They looked like a big happy family while Mo Huiling was just an outsider sitting at this table.
Why did Gu Xiande like Lin Che so much? Furthermore, it seemed that he was liking her more and more. He was so satisfied with Lin Che.
Gu Lanshan looked on from the side. Mu Wanqing had a touched expression on her face. She gazed at Lin Che and it seemed like she was about to cry.
Gu Lanshan gritted her teeth and said lowly to Mo Huiling, “How is it possible that you don’t know a single person around Gu Jingze after being together with him for so long?”
Mo Huiling felt as if she had received a heavy blow to the heart. She wanted to get acquainted with the people around him too. But Gu Jingze did not like taking her out, so it was impossible for her to get to know anyone.
“I… I do know some people, but… I’m not on very good terms with them,” Mo Huiling said.
Gu Lanshan said, “Hmph. Why don’t you learn from Lin Che? Look at how she gains favor from other people. On the other hand, you’re so eager to please everyone but Jingyu and Jingming can’t be bothered with you and they ignore you completely.”
Mo Huiling felt so aggrieved that her tears were about to fall. “I… I’m just not as scheming as Lin Che. She’s just a scheming bitch. What can I do?”
Gu Lanshan merely scoffed, leaned back, and stayed silent. She thought to herself that there was definitely a reason why Mo Huiling had been defeated by a mere Lin Che. She was simply not as good as Lin Che.
The people down below immediately got excited upon seeing the situation.
It was really rare for them to be able to see Gu Jingyu and Gu Xiande sitting together.
Now that they had actually seen this scene, they would have so much to brag about when they went back.
Furthermore, they were looking enviously at Lin Che. She was just a granddaughter-in-law but she could sit beside Gu Xiande and chat happily with him like family. They immediately felt that Mo Huiling’s earlier actions had meant nothing. No matter how expensive her gift was, it was, nevertheless, something that money could buy. But it was Lin Che’s gift that the Old Master liked.
The alternative explanation was that whether or not one liked the gift depended on who gave it. If someone you liked gave you something, you would appreciate it no matter how cheap it was. If someone you liked gave it to you, you would think of it as something that could simply be bought with money no matter how expensive it was. It would not be worth anything.
This was the prime example. Gu Xiande liked Lin Che, so she could sit beside him without giving him anything.
Before this, they had thought that the rumors about how Gu Xiande favored and liked Lin Che were false. Now, the people who had said those things earlier were completely proven wrong.
