Reluctantly Willing - chapter 59
“Is there a more subtle style?”
“Sir, this is the newest series from Benz. The color is very subtle and the automatic system is the most advanced. More importantly, it uses…”
The saleswoman kept talking, but Gu Jun wasn’t paying attention at all. He saw a car in the distance.
It obviously wasn’t a high class car. At most, it was a medium-to-low brand, but it had a familiar feeling.
A white car with a sleek design lay there quietly, just like how An Xiaoyan lay on bed quietly. It was very similar. The car strummed Gu Jun’s heartstrings. An Xiaoyan never gave off a high-class feeling, but something in his bones demanded respect.
“Show me that car.”
The saleswoman followed Gu Jun’s finger. It was a Honda. This brand was low-class compared to the others in the store. If someone with Gu Jun’s status bought this kind of car, he was probably gifting it.
“This is a Honda. The market price is 380,000. It’s not very expensive, but its quality-price ratio is quite high.”
Gu Jun nodded. He handed over a gold card without any hesitation.
“Excuse me, is it under your name or?”
“Under An Xiaoyan’s name. This is his ID.” He’d naturally taken An Xiaoyan’s ID card when he registered for driving school last time.
“Okay. Sir, we will do the paperwork for you now. You can fetch the car in ten days,” the saleswoman said with a professional smile. Inside, she was thinking about the person named An Xiaoyan. The news earlier had caused an uproar. This rich man looked like the picture on the web too. Did she really meet him?
So it was all real. That An Xiaoyan got a sugar daddy!
Ten days was just the right timing.
Gu Jun didn’t have to go to the company after the 25th of the 12th lunar month. An Xiaoyan wasn’t used to having him at home all day. He felt extremely uncomfortable.
However, Gu Jun was very comfortable. It was comforting to have An Xiaoyan beside him. He could also put his work aside for now. He relaxed.
Looking at An Xiaoyan wiping the table with a tissue, he couldn’t help but smile.
An Xiaoyan put down the ragged tissue and walked to Gu Jun’s side. The pressure made it hard for him to breathe. “Mr. Gu, what is it?”
Gu Jun patted the sofa for him to sit down.
“How’s driving? Can you drive on the road now?” Gu Jun very naturally rested his hand on An Xiaoyan’s shoulder. When his hand landed, he could clearly feel An Xiaoyan tense.
“I should be fine on the road.”
It was silent again.
Gu Jun tried to find a topic, but An Xiaoyan kept his head lowered, twisting his hands together. Gu Jun didn’t know what to ask.
“I have to go to the old house on the 28th. You’ll be alone again.”
“I will take care of the home.”
Gu Jun wished he could take An Xiaoyan home and announce that this was the man he liked. In reality, they couldn’t even count as an affair.
Seeing the smooth little face, he couldn’t help but move up and kiss it. As he kissed, his hands involuntarily reached into An Xiaoyan’s shirt, feeling the warmth inside.
He pressed down on An Xiaoyan’s body. They filled the sofa just right.
Gu Jun kissed deeply as if sketching the contours of a treasure. He was about to continue, but he was interrupted!
“Daddy, you’re crushing Uncle An!” a childish voice called from upstairs.
Gu Jun stopped. He straightened An Xiaoyan’s clothes and walked to Guo Guo. Behind him, An Xiaoyan reddened. What if Guo Guo got a bad impression after seeing something like this?
However, he couldn’t refuse Gu Jun.
“Daddy wasn’t crushing Uncle An. We’re just playing a game.”
“Let me play with Daddy!” With that, Guo Guo tugged at his clothes and pounced on Gu Jun.
Gu Jun was caught between laughing and crying. “This is a game for adults. Kids can’t play it. You can play it when you grow up.”
Kids were easy to placate. Guo Guo nodded. He was distracted by a toy on the side and instantly forgot about everything.
“Mr. Gu… Can we not do it in front of the kid? He’s still young,” An Xiaoyan said softly. Guo Guo was too young. An Xiaoyan couldn’t bear to let him see these dark things.
The straightforward answer relieved An Xiaoyan. He felt like Gu Jun was a bit different nowadays. Gu Jun didn’t seem to punish him as much and would sometimes agree with things easily.
If this continued, they wouldn’t be like before.
However, reality was always crueler than one could imagine. Something people thought had passed quickly actually had strong aftershocks.
At noon, the entire mansion felt dead. Everything was sleeping.
An Xiaoyan was thirsty, so he went downstairs to get water. Outside the kitchen, the whispering inside stopped him.
“I’m telling you, when I was sweeping upstairs earlier, I accidentally saw something I shouldn’t have seen.”
Another maid said, “What is it? Tell me. Stop teasing.”
“I saw Mr. Gu pressing that An Xiaoyan on the sofa. Mr. Gu’s hands were all the way in his shirt. An Xiaoyan didn’t even fight back.”
“You don’t know, he does that job, so he’s obviously easy. Didn’t the news make an uproar earlier? Mr. Gu even took him shopping. That mall was all name brands!”
“Yeah, and didn’t they go to the amusement park too? They brought Young Master along. I think he’s a male fox. He wants to win Young Master over to get a higher status!”
“Hey, this is a rooster that can’t lay eggs. I heard that the miss of the Xiu family is dating Mr. Gu. When they get together, there’ll be no place for him. Who’s he pretending for every day? He’s favored by the sir, so he just stays here for free. What kind of man is like him? What a failure!”
“Yeah! If my man is like this, I’d rather kill myself!”
“Your man isn’t as lucky as him, not having to work anymore at such a young age!”
An Xiaoyan couldn’t listen to the rest. He wasn’t thirsty either. He turned and went back.
The different feelings he’d accumulated were all gone now. Back in his room, his mind kept replaying the servants’ conversation.
Male fox, favored by a man, getting a higher status…
So this was how other people saw him.
It wasn’t completely wrong. Everyone knew about the amusement park. He was like a window of a man, whom everyone could see through.
No wonder the driving teacher always looked at him strangely. Thinking back, it was probably mockery. If he walked down the street now, would people recognize and whisper about him?
His heart hurt. It was as if all the old scars were opened up again. He didn’t want to care, but he was still humiliated to have so many people know and gossip about him.
There was that Ms. Xiu too. She should be with Gu Jun. He shouldn’t be getting in their way.
Maybe Gu Jun would tell him to leave in a few days and stop being a freeloader. Maybe he’d be told to move out and continue repaying his debt.
All his days in the mansion felt repetitive. It was as if his days had no difference.
“Miss, this is the invitation from the Gu family.” When the butler saw Xiu Yijian, he handed over the invitation.
“Okay.” She interacted with the Gu family often these days. Dinners and such were common.
When she opened the invitation, she was incredulous. Old Mr. Gu had personally written to invite her to eat the New Year’s Eve dinner with the Gu family.
This meal wasn’t for anyone. If they decided to eat this dinner, it meant that they agreed with the wedding. This meant that the rest of her life would be given away. She didn’t like Gu Jun. She did this just to participate in the international design competition.
“What did the person say when giving the invitation?”
“Just that you should consider it carefully.”
She indeed had to consider it.
Was it worth it to exchange the rest of her life for a chance? After ruminating, Xiu Yijian decided to go. Going only represented her intentions. If Gu Jun didn’t agree, they still couldn’t proceed.
“Tell them I’ll go.”
Gu Jun was cold and cruel on the surface, but people like him treasured relationships even more. If he liked anyone, he wouldn’t let go.
Xiu Yijian thought for a long while and suddenly remembered that there was a man in Gu Jun’s home. She’d seen a lot of gays while studying overseas. It was possible that Gu Jun liked a man.
She would have to see as she went.
