Xie Mengxuan and Aunt Cui had the same idea this time.
Xie Mengxuan was the winner when it came to the momentum. Whereas Aunt Cui moved out of discomfort and said, “Since it is none of our business, we will pretend that you are still the wife of Geng.”
“It doesn’t matter. Can I control your mouth if you want to say something.” Xie Mengxuan’s lips curved.
Aunt Cui nodded. “All right. Then I’ll take it as acquiesce. Since you’re still Mrs. Geng...”
Before Aunt Gui finished, Gu Yusheng came from outside with a smile. He glanced at Aunt Cui with a warning in his eyes and then said, “What’s wrong? Why is the cabin was surrounded by so many people?”
When Aunt Cui had eye contact with Gu Yusheng, she couldn’t help shivering, but she still straightened her back and said, “This Childe, you’d better not intervene in the affairs of our Zhoujia village.
“Geng Zhishan is my cousin, and Xie Mengxuan is his fiancee. You are embarrassing them now, so how can I just be an onlooker?” Gu Yusheng said with a smile and looked around, scaring many people and forcing them to step back.
Aunt Cui frowned but still stiffened her neck, “Are you really his cousin? She can’t deceive us villagers!”
“Do you still have to investigate the genealogy? Besides, one palm cannot clap, They give tacit consent to each other willingly. It’s not your turn to be in charge of their affairs.”
Others also felt that the words of Aunt Cui didn’t make any sense. So some of them suggested that they should return home. They were even less united now.
Aunt Cui looked at the man in front of her. Somehow, she felt a feeling of oppression and also a little uncomfortable. “Are you really a relative of the Geng family and not the new paramour of that woman?”
It was very indecent to call the man a new paramour. Gu Yusheng cleared his throat and said, “Hey, please pay attention to your words. It is impolite to tarnish the reputation of others.”
Aunt Cui felt uneasy, and so did others who had a good relationship with her. They pulled her arms, whispered a few words, and then ran away.
Aunt Cui took a deep breath and hummed, “You’d better not cross the line.”
Then she also turned away, as if the villagers were all helping Geng Zhishan and it was the foolish man’s fault not believing them or extending any gratitude to their kindness
When Aunt Cui left, Xie Mengxuan’s limp body couldn’t stand any longer. After gasping for a while, she felt tired and leaned against Geng Zhishan with her eyes closed.
Gu Yushen glared at Geng Zhishan like a green-eyed monster after seeing this.
However, Geng Zhishan seemed not to catch Gu’s sight. He was only concerned about Xie Mengxuan, “Darling, how are you? You really need a good rest. Let’s go into the house and have a check on your leg.”
Geng Zhishan’s concern was heartfelt. Xie Mengxuan stared at him, secretly sighed, and finally nodded her head.
Gu Yusheng slowly entered the house. Uncle Luo followed him silently with a serious face.
“Xuan’er, how are you?” Gu Yusheng trotted forward and asked.
Xie Mengxuan shook her head with a smile and said, “It’s alright. They just used their tongues without taking any action. Nevertheless, Brother Gu, where did you go just now?” She asked casually.
Gu Yusheng did not answer but just glanced at Geng Zhishan.
Geng Zhishan pretended not to see him. He was trying to check Xie Mengxuan’s leg and waited until the examination was over. He stood up and said, “Darling, I’ll make some soup for you.”
Then he left the house.
Uncle Luo closed the door from outside and leaned against the frame with his eyes closed.
“Xuan’er, you and him...” Gu Yusheng hesitated for a moment and asked, “Do you remember your identity?”
Gu Yusheng gazed outside with hesitation. Xie Mengxuan understood what he was thinking. She smiled and said, “Geng Zhishan? Brother Gu doesn’t need to worry. We are not married. When I got to the village, the people here wanted to drive me off. In order to save me, he lied about us being a couple, so I could stay here.”
Xie Mengxuan turned her head and looked out. “He is a simple man. From then on, he keeps calling me his wife. I refused several times to admit that, but it was useless. Later, I found that someone was spying on our cabin from time to time. Thus, I thought that if I refuse all the time, it will arouse suspicion in others. Therefore, I silently went along with it.”
Gu Yusheng could not help frowning; she was indeed sentimental when talking about him. So she couldn’t stay here anymore. It would be terrible if they fell in love as time went by. A simple man? The man could deceive Mengxuan, but he could not fool him. He was playing a role in a charade, so was Geng Zhishan. They both had their own intentions. He was able to find Geng’s trick more easily.
Xie Mengxuan continued talking. “Anyway, maybe I won’t see the people in this village in the future. Worse still, if I don’t admit it when I meet them, they can’t slander me.”
Gu Yusheng touched her head, wearing a smile. “You’ve become different from before. It seems I really haven’t seen you for years.”
“You too.” She asked again at random, “Where did you go just now?”
Gu Yusheng looked outside discreetly and then said with a lower voice. “I went to the temple on the mountain to see if there were any messages.”
“Did you receive one?” Xie Mengxuan could not help getting close to him with a little eagerness in her tone.
“Yes, I have. It came three days ago and told us to come back to the Imperial Capital as soon as possible.” Gu Yusheng said while taking out a note from his sleeve.
Xie Mengxuan reached for it as her eyes flashed, and she seemed to be a little excited. Then she took a deep breath, “All right. Pack up our luggage. We will leave for The Imperial Capital tomorrow!”
Gu Yusheng nodded his head. He believed that everything could be changed if they left this place. Thinking that, he then squinted, “But before we leave here, I have something to finish first.”
Xie Mengxuan didn’t ask what he would do. But when he left, she felt a sense of unease because she didn’t know what would happen if Geng knew that she was going to leave.
Xie Mengxuan noticed that she was actually concerned about the idea of Geng Zhishan, so she could not help pinching her forehead.
Gu Yusheng came back and went out again. Geng Zhishan didn’t care about his whereabouts. He just cooked fish soup for Xie Mengxuan and brought it to her with a smile on his face.
Xie Mengxuan took a sip, gently touched the edge of the bowl with her fingers, and said, “Geng Zhishan, I have something to say.”
“I don’t want to know.” Geng Zhishan interrupted her and turned his head back.
Xie Mengxuan was perplexed at his words and could not help laughing at his childish movements. “What are you doing? I haven’t even said anything yet.”
“The last time you had something for me was to say that I have nothing to do with your affairs. And now you’re ready to say something to me again. It must not be anything good.” Geng said with somewhat aggrieved feelings.
“But you need to know this.” Xie Mengxuan sighed, “Even if you don’t want to listen, you can’t change reality.”
Geng Zhishan turned his head, stared at Xie Mengxuan, and murmured, “Go ahead.”
Xie Mengxuan moved her lips, took a deep breath, and said, “I’m leaving.”
“What? Where do you want to go? Are you going to leave with that jerk?” Geng Zhishan pointed outside the house, and his tone could not help becoming a little higher and harsher.
Xie Mengxuan frowned, for she was unaccustomed to Geng Zhishan’s such behavior.
