Chapter 588 Don’t Do It
Xia Yunlou looked at Gu Zheng’s indifferent expression and sneered. It seemed like President Gu was very confident that no one would know about this secret. Of course, there was another possibility, which was that he didn’t care about Qiao Xi at all. Even if Qiao Xi knew, it wouldn’t matter to him. Otherwise, how could he be so calm?
No woman would be able to accept this secret, let alone a jealous woman like Qiao Xi. She would definitely be unable to accept this fact.
Xia Yunlou’s face was ferocious, but there was a trace of fear in her eyes. “President Gu, you said it yourself. If I say it out loud, don’t take your anger out on me!”
She suddenly raised her eyes and looked at Qiao Xi with ridicule. She laughed maniacally and spat out words that shocked everyone.
“Qiao Xi, you must not know that President Gu has an illegitimate child outside!”
The entire venue was in an uproar.
Everyone looked at her in disbelief, unable to digest this news.
Xia Yunlou laughed out loud. “If you don’t want others to know about it, you shouldn’t have done it. Don’t think that no one will know as long as you hide the child! Xi Xi, you haven’t been to Longwan Residential’s side courtyard, right? That child is hiding there. Your husband has an illegitimate child. You’d better divorce him quickly. He doesn’t really love you!
“Given your personality, it’ll definitely be hard for you to accept that your husband has an illegitimate child. You might as well get a divorce as soon as possible and let Anran marry Gu Zheng in your place.”
She then looked at Gu Zheng with a crazy expression. “President Gu, I’ve already said that Xi Xi isn’t suitable for you. If she doesn’t say anything, it means that she can’t accept your past. But Anran is different. She can accept it because she’s magnanimous and tolerant. You should know who is truly suitable for you now!”
The entire place was silent.
Old Madam Yin’s eyes were filled with anger as she glared at Gu Zheng.
The Yin family’s young master also revealed a difficult expression. If Gu Zheng really had an illegitimate child, then his younger sister would have to become that child’s stepmother.
Xia Yunlou looked at the silent crowd and became even more arrogant. “Haha… Only Anran-“.
“Madam Xu,” Gu Zheng interrupted her.
Everyone’s gazes landed on him, only to see the man lifting his eyes lazily. “Is the illegitimate child you’re talking about the one who has been staying in the courtyard of Longwan Residential for a year?”
Xia Yunlou replied without hesitation, “It’s him!”
“I see…” Gu Zheng smiled meaningfully. Then, he approached Xia Yunlou and said a few words in a voice that only the two of them could hear.
Xia Yunlou’s expression changed from arrogance to shock. She shook her head crazily. “Impossible! This is impossible!”
Gu Zheng said mockingly, “The people you sent to investigate are really amateurs. They didn’t even investigate the matter properly, yet they reported it to you so casually. No wonder the Xu family is starting to decline.”
Gu Zheng turned around and returned to Qiao Xi’s side. He held her hand with a gentle expression. “Let’s go upstairs.”
Xia Yunlou’s eyes were empty. She did not expect that the only trump card of hers did not hurt Gu Zheng at all. Instead, it gave her a heavy blow.
Xu Zhi’s angry roar was heard along with Xu Anran’s crying. Xia Yunlou felt that her mind was a mess. Her vision turned black, and she fell to the ground weakly.
Seeing the Xu family’s embarrassing state, Old Madam Yin’s face was full of disdain. She waved her hand and signaled the bodyguards to carry them away.
Yin Jinglin frowned and hesitated. “Grandma… President Gu has an illegitimate child? Why didn’t we know about it?”
Yin Jingting was more composed, but his expression was gloomy. “If President Gu… really has an illegitimate child, he probably won’t let others know about it so easily. Grandma, do you think Aunt Yunlou was telling the truth?”
Old Madam Yin’s expression was grave.
She wasn’t sure either. Xia Yunlou seemed to be serious, but Gu Zheng didn’t seem like someone who would do something like that. “I heard that President Gu has always been a clean man who doesn’t get close to women. Before he got married, he didn’t have a single woman by his side, nor did he have any scandals. The Gu family isn’t as strict as the Yin family, though. It’s a little strange. Does he have another woman behind his back?” Yin Jinglin guessed.
Old Madam Yin felt like a fishbone was stuck in her throat.
She had seen too many such things at her age. She had also experienced her husband cheating on her and getting a mistress. Now, she only hoped that Xi Xi would find a man who truly loved her and would no longer have to suffer. She didn’t expect Gu Zheng to have an illegitimate child.
