Loving You As Scheduled - chapter 59
Gu Zhendong was startled. “Nothing?”
Hearing so, Gu Zhendong looked rather disappointed for a moment.
“Then why did he say that you were his lady last time?”
Gu Qiangwei pondered for a while and responded. “Actually, I hired that man!”
Gu Zhendong was startled. This time, his shock could clearly be seen from his eyes. “Hired?!?”
“Yeah.” She nodded, hoping that by saying so, her father would believe that she had nothing on with that man.
“So that man isn’t even Qin Sijue?” Gu Zhendong finally understood.
After all this, that man isn’t even Qin Sijue!
Gu Qiangwei thought for a bit.
Her eyes drooped. She did not notice how Gu Zhendong instantly had a disappointed look.
Qin Sijue should be a real name, right?
But since she said that she hired him, she could only go along and make up a reply!
Something’s not right. Why does Dad behave like he knows Qin Sijue?
She looked up and saw that Gu Zhendong had a slightly dark expression.
“Do you know Qin Sijue?” Her black eyes looked around, searching for an answer.
Gu Zhengdong looked up and made eye contact with her daughter. He did not want to seem too obvious, so he smiled. “No. Why would I know a great man like Mr. Qin?”
After he finished his sentence, he accidentally sighed.
He thought that his daughter really had something with Qin Sijue. However, as it ended up, it was fake!
Then, his company was still going to be in a bad state. What should he do?
Could it be…
He looked up at her daughter.
If that’s the only way, then I’ll have to trouble Qiangwei.
I raised her up for all these years, so it should be nothing to have a meal with someone, right?
Sigh, it’s such a pity that she does not know the real Qin Sijue. Otherwise, that might’ve been able to help me.
“Qiangwei, Dad would like to rest for a while. You…” Gu Zhendong paused, not wanting to make it too obvious. “Stay for dinner, okay?”
“Stay for dinner”—Gu Qiangwei did not know if she should be glad or sad after hearing this sentence.
She was sad because this was her house, and yet her father wanted her to “stay” for dinner and not to “return home”.
Or perhaps she should be happy that her father did not ask her to leave immediately?
Hearing Gu Zhendong’s words, Chen Peifang, who was by the side, was immediately unhappy.
She had finally managed to kick this rascal out of the house; how could she give her a chance to return?
Right, I’ll call Shijie!
Chen Peifang left the room and quickly phoned Gu Shijie.
Gu Qiangwei stayed in the room and thought about how she was, after all, her father’s biological child. If he was not in good health, she could not show no care for him, so she left after helping him lie down.
She did not intend to stay for dinner as it was still early. She did not want to have to interact with Chen Peifang alone!
However, she had just walked to the door when Gu Zhendong suddenly yelled for her again from the bed.
Hearing the voice, Qiangwei turned around and saw that her father had suddenly gotten up again.
“What is it?”
“Stay for dinner. After dinner, let’s go somewhere together.”
Gu Qiangwei was startled. Other than when she was very young, her father seldom brought her along with him anywhere, yet today, he actually wanted to take her somewhere?
Suddenly, Gu Qiangwei felt moved for a bit. Was her father really turning over a new leaf? Had he really noticed how much he owed her and her mother? Was this why he was trying hard to make up for it now?
