Chapter 589 An Idiot At Love
At this moment, Yin Jingting’s gaze was gloomy. “If Gu Zheng really has an illegitimate child, we definitely can’t let Sister suffer.”
Yin Jinglin sighed. “Maybe Madam Xu was lying. I don’t think President Gu is that kind of person.”
On the other hand, Qiao Xi couldn’t help but feel puzzled when she went upstairs.
She had been to the courtyard of Longwan Residential. It didn’t look like a place where people lived. If Gu Zheng really had an illegitimate child, would he arrange for him to stay so close to him?
Qiao Xi frowned and couldn’t help but ask, “He’s… over a year old?”
Gu Zheng’s expression was indifferent. “No, it has probably been longer than that since I picked him up. Someone left him at the entrance of Longwan Residential.”
At that time, the child was lying on the ground, dying. His small body was covered in dirt. If Gu Zheng didn’t take him in, he would’ve definitely died.
Qiao Xi only felt tears well up in her eyes. Ordinary people wouldn’t come to Longwan Residential. Since the child was left at the entrance, then the child was surely related to Gu Zheng. Moreover, Gu Zheng had never been a kind person. Being able to casually take a child in meant that the child was indeed related to him.
Qiao Xi suppressed the sorrow in her heart and said indifferently, “Can he walk now?”
Gu Zheng smiled and nodded. “Of course. He can run!”
Qiao Xi’s heart ached even more. It seemed that Gu Zheng really liked this illegitimate child of his, and his face was filled with gentleness at the thought of him.
Immediately after, Gu Zheng spoke again, “Every time I visit him, as long as I call his name, he’ll quickly run toward me and be very close to me.”
Qiao Xi was extremely jealous and almost couldn’t control her sobs, so she didn’t speak.
That child was indeed President Gu’s son. He was so obedient at such a young age and good at currying favor with Gu Zheng. In a few years, would he be raised in Longwan Residential? What would her status be then?
“You named him?”
Gu Zheng replied, “Yes, his name is Lele-Gu Lele.”
Qiao Xi: “…” President Gu gave his child such a name. That’s too simple! And it doesn’t sound like a boy’s name!
Gu Zheng continued, “He’s always happy and carefree, so I named him Lele.”
Qiao Xi frowned. Gu Zheng couldn’t possibly have come up with such an ordinary name. Perhaps it was the child’s mother who gave him this name. Gu Zheng doted on this child too much and didn’t change it.
The more she thought about it, the more bitter she felt. Qiao Xi took a deep breath and asked, “Where’s his mother?”
Gu Zheng was a little puzzled. How did he know where the mother of the dog was? She might already be dead.
The man thought for a moment before replying, “I don’t know where she went either. She left Lele behind.”
Qiao Xi: “??!”
Actually, with Gu Zheng’s power, it was very easy for him to look for a woman. However, he said he did not know where that woman had gone. There were only two possibilities. Either he had not searched at all, or he had long forgotten who that woman was.
If it was the first, then he would be too heartless. No matter what, she had given birth to a child for him, yet he treated it as if that woman was already dead and did not care about her at all.
If it was the second possibility, which was that he had completely forgotten who it was, then it meant his previous life was very messy. Otherwise, how could he not even know who the child’s mother was?
Qiao Xi only felt a wave of anger surge into her heart. Tears fell from her eyes as she sniffled. She fiercely pushed Gu Zheng away, then slammed the door shut.
Gu Zheng was confused. Why was she so angry?
When they first got married, he was afraid that Qiao Xi didn’t like dogs, so he kept Lele in the courtyard. He didn’t expect this matter to make her so angry.
Gu Zheng was silent for a long while before gently knocking on Qiao Xi’s door.
Not far away, Song Shiyu looked disappointed. “Brother, you said that the president is good at everything, but he doesn’t know anything about relationships! No wonder Young Madam misunderstood his ambiguous words!”
Song Shijing said, “Don’t talk nonsense about the president!”
“Did I spout nonsense?! He’s an idiot at love! Young Madam obviously believes in Xia Yunlou’s words and thinks that the president has an illegitimate child. If he doesn’t explain it clearly, Young Madam will be so heartbroken! I can’t believe a man like him could even find himself a wife!”
Song Shijing shook his head helplessly and dragged Song Shiyu downstairs to avoid disturbing the president and his wife.
