Gu Meifeng’s plan failed one after another. She was so angry that she vomited blood.
She nearly blurted out that secret matter from back then. “Qiqi, it’s not right for you to say this about Xuexue. Xuexue and Liuchuan are in love. That’s called trying it out before marriage. Don’t think that they don’t love themselves like you. Back then, you sold—”.
Before she could say the words “selling eggs”…
The banquet hall door was kicked open.
A loud male voice traveled into her ears. “Who said that Qiqi doesn’t love herself?! Are you looking for a beating?”
Everyone turned to look.
She couldn’t help but be stunned.
It was actually Old Master Gong who had retired for many years!
The father of the Empire’s president and the Chief was the Gong family’s head who once struck fear in people’s hearts.
Indeed, his style of appearance was the same as Master Jue’s.
This powerful aura made Gu Meifeng shut her mouth in a daze. She couldn’t say that terrifying past anymore…
What shocked Gu Meifeng and Gu Xuexue even more was Gong Qing’s words “Qiqi.”
Had Gu Qiqi already met his parents and entered the family?
At this moment, Gu Qiqi’s astonishment wasn’t inferior to everyone’s. She was stunned for a few seconds before she reacted. “Mr. Gong…”
Why was Gong Qing here?!
No, no, no. More importantly, how could Gong Qing speak up for her in public?!
A few hours ago, he was still rolling his eyes at her at the Gong Residence.
“Why are you calling me Mr. Gong? Call me Uncle! You didn’t even inform me about your grandfather’s birthday banquet? Are you afraid that I can’t afford a birthday gift?” Gong Qing said in annoyance.
Gu Qiqi was speechless. She really couldn’t have a good chat with Mr. Gong.
Old Master Gu was in a good mood.
He had always wanted to ask why Gong Jue wasn’t here just now, but he was afraid that his granddaughter would be shy.
Seeing that the other party’s parents had come directly, they actually gave Gong Jue face and took this matter seriously.
Immediately, a trace of satisfaction flashed across his face. He stroked his beard and said, “Old Master Gong is here for the banquet. Why are you still bringing a birthday gift? That’s too polite!”
As he spoke, his voice deepened. “We’re family. There’s no need to be polite. There’s no need for gifts.” Family?
Gong Qing didn’t react and thought to himself, I’m just here because of this messy woman. Who cares about your family?
He didn’t have the time to think carefully. He strode forward immediately and stood between Gu Qiqi and Chu Junmo, separating the two of them.
Then, he simply pulled Old Master Gu’s hand through Gu Qiqi and made small talk. “I’m a boorish person who only knows how to fight and kill. Usually, I admire scholars like you the most. Today is rare. I want to toast you properly! I won’t stop until I’m drunk!”
The old master laughed heartily at this straightforward man’s words. “Okay, I won’t stop until I’m drunk!” In the future, they would be in-laws. Of course, he had to have a good drink.
Naturally, the two of them walked towards the table.
Gu Qiqi followed the two seniors back to the table.
In the middle of the banquet hall, only Chu Junmo was left alone. He watched as his good chance to protect his flower was actually snatched away by Gong Jue’s father…
Chu Junmo curved his lips and smiled bitterly.
He couldn’t bicker with an arrogant old man, right?
He walked back to his seat in silence and drained his glass.
Gong Qing stole a glance at Chu Junmo and was extremely pleased.
Heh heh, he was still young. With a casual move, he crushed a big rival for his son.
In the corner nearby, Gu Xuexue rebuked Gu Meifeng. “Mommy, why didn’t you tell them about Gu Qiqi selling her eggs just now?! I want to see who else will take a look at her after everyone knows about her ugly incident back then!”
Gu Meifeng sighed.
