In the following days, Gu Yubai dismissed his marriage contract. Even his father, who was in the army, returned to berate him. He used the family law to lash and imprison his son.
How could he not know the intention behind this move? The reason was apparent. Lin Meng was back, and he dissolved the engagement.
This was not a trivial matter. Dissolution of marriage could lead to dispute, but since it was their family’s grandson, they had to protect him.
In fact, Gu Yubai’s intentions were good. He wanted to take care of Xiao Meng. As for her and A’Jun, they have no fate between them.
He had made the decision which was right according to him. He could care less about everyone’s thoughts. He didn’t need the approval of others for his decisions. As time passed, they would agree as well.
Lin Meng has no idea of Gu Yubai’s struggles. She didn’t know what was waiting for her. She didn’t know that this afternoon, her life would change completely
Sometimes a small decision could change the direction of a person’s life, giving it a new path. Or perhaps, this decision was to redirect their fate into its original path.
No one could conclude…
“What? You want to meet with Gu Yubai. Xiao Meng, are you crazy?” Ouyang Ning was perplexed and enraged. The couple of times she encountered him, she had almost died in his hand. She actually dared to go alone and meet him!
“I owe him an explanation, I want to make things clear in person.”
“Speak to him? Make things clear? He wants your life. Someone is waiting to kill you, and you send yourself to their door.” Ouyang Ning could not understand her decision.
Xiao Ning’s concern, of course, wasn’t wrong. Her grandfather had agreed to her decision. That didn’t mean the rest would, as well.
“Would you like me to come with you?” She was uneasy sending her there alone.
Lin Meng shook her head. Xiao Ning was impulsive. She was afraid if she brought her along, the matter would heat up rather than getting resolved.
“Forget it, I don’t care.” Ouyang sighed and walked to her closet.
“All my clothes are here. What kind of suit do you want?” She pointed to the cabinet.
Lin Meng swept through the cabinet full of clothes. She came to borrow clothes from Ouyang Ning since both were of similar build. She had not bought any decent dresses in recent years. After returning home, her clothes had long since disappeared. She was too lazy to buy new clothes. She didn’t have any friends, and she doesn’t like to go shopping. In the past few years, clothes had no other purpose than to provide warmth
“This one.” Ouyang Ning reached for a lemon-yellow dress and a white coat. Her skin was fair so the yellow would look good against it. Then from the shoe cabinet, she got a silver-white high-heeled ankle boot.
When Lin Meng came out dressed, she stared at her own reflection.
Was this the same woman?
‘When you dress up, you look like a fairy. Why don’t you dress up more often?’
