Chapter 3385: A New Addition (1)
Baby Chu had always been troubled by one thing.
That his mother did not seem very happy to stay in the Gu family home.
Chu He had settled down in the Gu family home.
In reality, she was not willing to stay here. The Gu family home was like a prison to her, completely restricting her freedom.
However, she had no choice because she could not part with Baby Chu.
He was her only support. Hence, for his sake, she stayed.
Gu Jinglian had assigned a personal helper to serve her. In ancient times, this would be considered a personal servant girl!
However, Chu He knew clearly that superficially, although this helper was by her side to serve her, in reality it was a form of surveillance!
Gu Jinglian seemed to think highly of Baby Chu, which was quite surprising.
From her understanding of Gu Jinglian, this man did not believe in marriage, and thought nothing of having a wife or children. He didn’t seem to place much importance on carrying on the lineage, although, there was no lack of women hankering after him, hoping to bear him children so as to secure their position in such a family.
However, Gu Jinglian was very guarded against this matter, so nothing out of the ordinary ever happened.
She was probably the only exception.
Her personal helper was by the name of Jian Jun, and she wasn’t an ordinary servant girl. Chu He had noticed the muscles on her arm and knew that she must have some skills.
Therefore, she had never been close to Jian Jun.
From the start, she had been expelled from the Gu family home and was banned. Hence staying there now, her freedom was restricted. She stayed in her room reading or actively training. Her body gradually recovered, but the days were long and boring.
Later on, when Baby Chu cried terribly and pestered Butler Fu for his mother, the man reported this to Gu Jinglian and only then was Chu He given the right to go out.
Usually, when she woke up early, she would send Baby Chu to kindergarten for classes. In the afternoon, she would pick him up from school with Butler Fu, and thus the task of taking the boy to school and back home eventually fell on her.
Baby Chu would pester her and sleep with her every night.
There were many homework assignments in kindergarten, for instance extra-curricular reading, but most of them would be handicraft homework.
However, Baby Chu did not seem to have much talent in art and crafts. He could manage some drawing, but when it came to cutting paper or other crafts, he had to beg help from the other people in the Gu residence.
For example, one time, the child had been assigned homework to make a three-dimensional card, Baby Chu went home dejectedly and told Butler Fu about it.
Butler Fu immediately patted his chest and volunteered, “Isn’t this very simple?”
So he prepared a pair of scissors and some colored paper, and with some pomp, got started on the task.
Half an hour later, the man presented the finished piece to Baby Chu as if he was presenting a treasure. Baby Chu looked at the mess and almost broke down in tears.
Uncle Fu gritted his teeth and immediately summoned a group of subordinates from the Gu residence to the study.
When Chu He arrived, she was shocked by the scene before her.
He saw a group of well-built Gu family thugs. They were hunched over, scowling at a pile of craft papers and wielding scissors in their hands, not knowing where to start.
They were used to holding pistols, fighting and killing. Being injured and bleeding was nothing new to them. However, having to cut such a delicate thing with such a tiny pair of scissors was a huge challenge for them.
