Gu Mohan scanned around the room with a sharp gaze, but he didn’t find the one he was looking for.
He pursed his lips and revealed a grim expression. Stretching out his legs, he took swift steps around the room.
He pushed open the bathroom door.
No one was inside.
The walk-in wardrobe was empty too.
He combed through every corner of the room, but Tang Mo’er was nowhere to be seen.
The thought of her going missing sent him into a panic. His chest started pumping and he let out a scornful laugh. How dare she run away with his son!
Auntie Wu appeared with a bowl of birds nest broth in her hands. “Young Madam, it’s time for dinner…”
She dropped the bowl on the carpeted ground once she witnessed the scene.
The entire apartment sunk into a deafening silence, Auntie Wu stood aside and didn’t dare to make a sound.
Gu Mohan slumped against the sofa in the living room, he didn’t cross his legs, they were just stretched forward. He held a cigarette in one hand and puffed on it while his brows were knitted.
The smoke had blurred his facial features and no one could tell what was on his mind.
The front door was unlocked, Yan Dong quickly walked over and reported, “President, I’ve locked down the transport network in Karghalik as per your instructions and combed through every place, but we still haven’t been able to find Miss Tang. It’s as though she has vanished into thin air.”
Gu Mohan puffed on his cigarette again, spitting out the smoke. “She didn’t just vanish into thin air, it’s not possible for her to do so. She doesn’t have the ability to leave Karghalik in such a short period of time. She’s just hidden herself away so that I can’t find her.”
“President, what do you need me to do? Karghalik isn’t that large but it’s not small either. It’s almost like looking for a needle in a haystack. Moreover, Miss Tang is pregnant…”
Gu Mohan started puffing on his cigarette with a quicker motion at the mention of Tang Mo’er being pregnant.
As long as she was still in Karghalik, he would definitely find her, no matter how long it took.
But he could no longer wait.
She had run away with his son.
She had taken his son away.
The most important thing was that she really wasn’t willing to stay by his side. Even if he were to bring her back, she would still plan an escape again.
What could he possibly do to make her return on her own accord?
Gu Mohan slowly finished smoking his cigarette before he stubbed it out on the ashtray. Brushing off the ash on his trousers, he whipped out his cell phone and dialed a number.
“Xiyan, let’s get married.”
He planned to get married to Jun Xiyan.
He needn’t do anything else, he would just wait for her to come back.
He was betting that she would appear at their wedding.
She would be back, wouldn’t she?
If she didn’t appear, they would no longer stand a chance together again. She would never appear before him ever again.
He was forcing her to make a choice, he had no other way.
He was going all-in, betting everything in this gamble.
News of the marriage between the Gu’s and Jun’s had spread like fire in Karghalik.
One night before the wedding, in the study room.
Old Master Gu sat in his chair while clutching onto a cell phone, he was on the phone with someone.
“Hello, President Lu, congratulations. When Mohan and Xiyan get married tomorrow, the second young master of the Jun family, the president of country Z, will be back to attend the wedding. Your only contender, Jun Mosheng, will finally be back after 20 years.”
A few seconds later, Lu Jinwen’s voice sounded on the other end of the phone call. He laughed. “I would say the same for Old Master Gu too, your wishes are finally granted. Your grandson is finally marrying the granddaughter-in-law you’ve approved of. The city must have been waiting for the profit-motivated marriage between the Gu’s and Jun’s.”
“Haha,” Old Master Gu laughed. “I’ve gotten what I wanted and President Lu, you’ve also achieved your aims. You’ve always been waiting for Jun Mosheng to come back to Karghalik so that you could get the chance to seize Lin Xuanji. But I still don’t get it, why are you so sure that Lin Xuanji is with Jun Mosheng?”
“That’s none of your business.”
“Fine, I’m not going to talk about that then. President Lu, do you know why I’ve always been fond of Lin Xuanji? It’s because even after she’s left for so many years, she still has such a strong presence. President Lu, you’ve been searching for her like crazy. Though Lin Xuanji hasn’t done anything, her absence has tortured you so much.”
There wasn’t any sound on the other end, not even Lu Jinwen’s breathing could be heard.
“President Lu, you were behind the abortion pills prescribed to Mo’er, right?” Old Master Gu asked.
Lu Jinwen replied, “Oh? I thought that you were behind it.”
Old Master Gu laughed. “On the outside, it may seem like I’m the biggest obstruction to Mohan and Mo’er’s relationship, but the biggest obstacle is actually you, President Lu. Your daughter is head over heels for Mohan, but you’ve never taken your daughter’s happiness into consideration, you only have one goal in mind. That is to get Jun Mosheng back in Karghalik and seize Lin Xuanji. Weren’t you the one behind the abortion pills, with the intention of breaking Mohan and Mo’er up?”
“Ha,” Lu Jinwen laughed. “I thought that you were behind it all. You’ve never taken your grandson’s happiness into consideration either, not even letting off your first great grandchild. You only have profits in your one-track mind.”
“And so many people would categorize me with President Gu, the type who are cold blooded and heartless.”
“Since you know how I’m like, don’t try to mess with Mo’er.”
“Don’t worry, President Lu. I’m just praying that your daughter doesn’t come about and provoke my grandson. How would I even dare to mess with her?”
They were passing the buck, with Lu Jinwen ending the phone call eventually.
Old Master Gu put down his cell phone and the butler was puzzled and couldn’t help but ask, “Old Master, were you really behind the… abortion pills?”
Old Master Gu lifted his head and gave the butler a look…
Up the hill, in a little bungalow.
In the study room, Lu Jinwen hung up the phone call and Butler Ye walked in front, asking, “Sir, were you really behind the abortion pills prescribed to Elder Miss?”
Lu Jinwen put his cell phone down on the desk before he glanced at Butler Ye.
Butler Ye was stunned by the ambiguous gaze, he asked again, “Sir, Elder Miss is already asleep. She still doesn’t know about Gu Mohan and Jun Xiyan’s wedding. Am I supposed to inform Elder Miss of the news?”
Butler Ye hesitated for a moment. “Jun Mosheng will be back in Karghalik tomorrow, the wedding is bound to proceed. But what about Elder Miss and Gu Mohan… everyone could tell that Gu Mohan is forcing Elder Miss to appear with this spontaneous wedding. If Elder Miss doesn’t appear, Gu Mohan will really marry Jun Xiyan and take her to be his wife.”
Lu Jinwen knitted his brows, he didn’t speak and the atmosphere became strangely oppressive and stifling.
Jun Mosheng was finally returning to Karghalik.
He had waited too long for this day to come.
The next day.
The wedding was held in a church. There was a luscious red carpet and fresh flowers scattered everywhere.
