Chapter 368: Stupefied
“From this situation, we are able to tell that it was slander on Xue Miqi’s part when she claimed to be innocent and that the mastermind behind Zhong Nuannuan’s attempted murder was in fact Zhong Qianqian. This was nothing but a baseless accusation. Zhong Qianqian had indeed transferred 30 thousand to Xue Miqi, but it was a loan from Zhong Qianqian to Xue Miqi to take part in the dinner auction that had been postponed to two weeks later.
“The military court did not have enough evidence to convict, and Zhong Qianqian was acquitted and released. The school board is here today to clarify this matter to our students.”
After the director was done with his speech, Gu Mingzhe stood up as well. “When I was on the way here, I overheard the various discussions the school had about Qianqian. Everyone was talking about how Qianqian’s embarrassment evolved into rage as she attempted to get between Chi Yang and Nuannuan, which caused her to try to murder Nuannuan. I would like to clarify this matter here with everyone present. Qianqian is not the black-hearted lotus flower described by all of you. She never wanted to get between Chi Yang and Nuannuan. She has a boyfriend and her boyfriend is me, Gu Mingzhe. Not only are we in a relationship, but Qianqian and I will be getting engaged next month.”
Gu Mingzhe’s words caused many female students, who had crowded outside the window of the classroom, to scream.
This was the young master of Gu Family Enterprise!
This was a man who could only be seen in certain business magazines, and now, he was about to become Zhong Qianqian’s husband!
That being said, everyone felt that Young Master Gu’s eyes seemed to be just a tad too firm. There was a certain headstrong look to them.
All men are creatures who judge another physically, right? Zhong Qianqian and Zhong Nuannuan may share the same father, but the appearance and body of both sisters were like heaven and earth. How could Young Master Gu lay eyes on Zhong Qianqian when he had a sister-in-law who was so attractive, especially when compared to her sister?
Even so, this doubt in everyone’s mind was insignificant compared to the envy and jealousy of the students, especially within the girls.
They all wanted desperately for a tall, handsome, rich man, who had such stubborn taste, to fall in love with them and announce their engagement right on the spot.
The screams of those students made Gu Mingzhe laugh quietly.
“Everyone is aware that Gu Family Enterprises has moved to Emperor District. This engagement was supposed to be held in Emperor District, but Qianqian is currently still a student. In order not to interfere with her studies, we will hold the engagement ceremony in Jiang District.”
Gu Mingzhe’s words stunned Zhong Qianqian.
“Bro Mingzhe, how can you do this? Your family…”
Zhong Qianqian wanted to say that she had not even met his family and did not know if they would agree to this. If they had gotten engaged and his family did not agree to the marriage, what would happen to her?
Gu Mingzhe seemed to be aware of what Zhong Qianqian was worried about. He turned toward her and said passionately, “I informed my parents about this yesterday. Even though they have yet to meet you, but my parents are respectful of my decision. Besides, when they found out you were still a student, they decided to book two private airplanes to fly our friends from Emperor District over here. First of all, you are the only future daughter-in-law of the Gu family and the Gu family should give you the respect you deserve. Second of all…” Gu Mingzhe smiled slightly, almost dazzling Zhong Qianqian’s eyes.
“Don’t forget, the Gu family started out in Jiang District.”
Zhong Qianqian was completely stupefied by the sincere smile that appeared on Gu Mingzhe’s lips.
To be honest, she had hit rock bottom when the military court had taken her away yesterday. However, Gu Mingzhe had suddenly appeared in front of her to bail her out. Next, he suddenly asked her to be his girlfriend, and today, she was suddenly informed by Gu Mingzhe that they would be getting engaged next month.
