Chapter 532 Xu Anran Is Despised
Xia Yunlou was so scared that she did not dare to say anything else. Then, Xu Zhi looked at Gu Zheng obsequiously. “President Gu, take a seat. Don’t just stand there!”
Xu Anran had a shy expression. She was sure that Gu Zheng was the most perfect man she had ever seen. If she could marry him, she was willing to pay any price.
Gu Zheng ignored everyone and held Qiao Xi’s hand as they sat on the main seats. He asked casually, “I’m very curious why Madam Xu reprimanded my wife. What did she do wrong?” Xu Zhi was shocked.
However, Xia Yunlou felt that she finally had a chance. She quickly explained, “President Gu, of course, I reprimanded her for a reason. Xi Xi is not worthy of you. It’s really unfair to you to have her as your wife.”
The entire venue was silent.
After a few seconds of silence, Gu Zheng smirked. “So?”
Xia Yunlou thought that Gu Zheng had confirmed her words, so she continued, “Xi Xi grew up in the countryside. She doesn’t have the aura of a socialite at all. She doesn’t know etiquette and isn’t cultured. It’s really inappropriate for her to be your wife.
“After thinking about it, I think Anran is more suitable for you. Old Xu and I had high expectations of her since she was young. We raised her to become a top socialite. She graduated from a famous university and is proficient in all kinds of musical instruments, calligraphy, painting, and dancing. Although she’s not our biological daughter, Old Xu and I have always treated her as our biological daughter. I think only Anran is worthy of such an outstanding and successful man like you.”
As soon as she finished speaking, the air was silent. One could only hear Song Shiyu gritting his teeth.
Xia Yunlou did not think that there was anything wrong with what she said. She pushed Xu Anran forward like a matchmaker. “Anran, quickly go over and greet President Gu.”
Xu Anran blushed. “President Gu.”
She was gentle, shy, and charming. Her eyes were filled with affection, but she was also reserved.
However, Gu Zheng did not respond. The atmosphere was extremely awkward.
The shyness on Xu Anran’s face gradually turned into embarrassment. “President Gu, I _ II
“Madam Xu.” Gu Zheng’s eyes darkened, his expression indifferent.
“What kind of person do you think I am? Why do you think any Tom, Dick, or Harry can be shoved to my side? My taste isn’t that bad. I don’t like just anyone.”
There was silence-dead silence.
The expressions on Xia Yunlou’s and Xu Anran’s faces gradually stiffened. They turned as pale as paper. Any Tom, Dick, or Harry? He actually described her that way? She… She was the eldest daughter of the Xu family, a top socialite in high society. “Madam Xu, your biological daughter has already married our president, yet you’re still so anxious to give your adopted daughter to the president. Aren’t you deliberately trying to ruin our president’s reputation by acting like this? In today’s society, we practice monogamy. Don’t you know that?”
Song Shiyu sneered. “Our president has married Young Madam, yet the Xu family wishes to deliver your adopted daughter to him. Is that appropriate? The Xu family is also a noble family. Don’t tell me you indulge in such bad practices!”
Xia Yunlou’s breathing quickened.
Even if President Gu and his assistant, Song Shiyu, did not like Anran, they should not belittle her so much. What did they mean by their words? The Xu family wanted Anran to be Mrs. Gu because Qiao Xi was not worthy of this identity.
“Mr. Xu, our president isn’t here to listen to your excuses. Since you don’t like Young Madam, the president will bring her back to
Song Shiyu snorted. “It’s already so late, but Young Madam was still called out by her biological mother and forced to divorce our president. If news of this gets out, will the Xu family still be so arrogant?”
Gu Zheng was about to leave when Xu Zhi hurriedly went up to him. “President Gu, my wife and daughter were just anxious. Please don’t take it to heart. I just want to talk to Xi Xi about her brother. Anyi is Xi Xi’s brother, after all. So…
“It was Anyi’s fault for what happened before, but… we’re family, after all. President Gu, you’re magnanimous, so let’s not kick up a fuss. Why don’t we talk in the study?”
Gu Zheng nodded calmly.
Song Shiyu followed the two upstairs. At this moment, only the mother and daughters were left downstairs.
Qiao Xi did not even look at the two of them as she stood up and walked out.
