Chapter 373: Watching A Joke
“Of course I’m not really annulling it. I didn’t agree to it.”
All Gu Mingzhe did was smile at Zhong Nuannuan’s words.
“Regardless of if you marry him, I still wish you happiness.”
As he said this, Gu Mingzhe took out a name card and a pen from his coat pocket, which one could tell was quite expensive with just one look. He wrote a phone number on the card and passed it to Zhong Nuannuan. “This is my number. Feel free to call me if you are facing any issues. I will definitely help you in any way I can.”
Zhong Nuannuan was about to reject him when she saw Zhong Qianqian come out from the classroom. It was payback time for Zhong Nuannuan and she was about to collect interest for the debt. Thus, she smiled and took Gu Mingzhe’s card from his hands.
Zhong Qianqian’s heart fell and as she quickly rushed to his side and held onto Gu Mingzhe’s arm. She put on a smiling face but her eyes were filled with a vicious darkness as she declared her right to Zhong Nuannuan.
“What are you doing?”
“Brother-in-law was just giving me his number. He said to call him if I need anything as he wiykd be sure to help me out. Brother-in-law is such a nice person.”
This hateful little seductress!
Gu Mingzhe knew Zhong Nuannuan and Zhong Qianqian were not on good terms and could clearly tell Zhong Nuannuan’s words were trying to sow discord. However, he did not find it detestable when facing the girl he liked. On the contrary, he quite liked it.
Gu Mingzhe did not realize that his eyes carried a hint of indulgence when he said, “I heard Uncle telling Nuannuan to annul her marriage to Chi Yang when I came out just now, so I came over to show my concern to my sister-in-law. Fortunately, Nuannuan said she won’t be annulling the marriage. So, I told Nuannuan she could come directly to me if she faced any trouble in the future.”
Zhong Qianqian was not happy with Gu Mingzhe giving Zhong Nuannuan his contact number, but she was cheered up by Gu Mingzhe’s explanation.
Only a man who cared about her would explain the situation so thoroughly.
No matter how much of a vixen Zhong Nuannuan was, Gu Ming had said those words, right? Sister. In. Law!
As for herself, she would become Gu Mingzhe’s wife, the future young madam of the Gu Family Enterprise!
With Gu Mingzhe supporting her, Zhong Qianqian immediately played the older sister card.
“Nuannuan, I heard Dad mention yesterday that you’ve offended Deputy Commander-in-Chief Wang. How could you do something like that? Don’t you know if you anger Deputy Commander-in-Chief Wang, the first people he will come for is the Zhong family? I’ve also heard about your situation. Quickly go ahead and annul your marriage with Chi Yang. Don’t worry about anything else. Even though you treated me so poorly yesterday, I won’t hold it against you because I’m your sister. Once you’ve annulled your marriage, I’ll get Bro Mingzhe to pick a suitable young and talented man from his company for you. We won’t let you suffer, am I right?”
There was a subtle shine in Gu Mingzhe’s eyes.
This was a good suggestion.
If Zhong Nuannuan married an employee from their company, she could have a husband in name. When the time came for him to be with Zhong Nuannuan, her husband would not say anything about their relationship even if he found out about it. If he had done something so sneaky like this and got discovered by Chi Yang, he could end up being charged with destroying a military marriage, especially with Chi Yang’s high ranking in the military base.
Zhong Nuannuan thought Zhong Qianqian was doing a comedic routine when she saw the victorious look on Zhong Qianqian’s face.
“Do you know why Dad left so quickly?”
Zhong Qianqian had a bad feeling about this. “Why?”
“Because that Deputy Commander-in-Chief Wang has been arrested.”
Gu Mingzhe, “…”
Zhong Qianqian, “…”
