“Brother Gu, where did you go? Why have you just come back?” Xie Mengxuan stood in front of Gu Yusheng and asked with concern.
Gu Yusheng glanced at Geng Zhishan in the house, covered his dim look, then looked at Xie Mengxuan, and said gently, “I didn’t go anywhere, just solving some problems.
Xie Mengxuan nodded and said, “The house of the head of the village was on fire. Do you know what was going on?”
“Really? I don’t know. I just taught Aunt Cui a lesson but the fire has nothing to do with me.” Gu Yusheng said, unperturbed.
He behaved so naturally that Xie Mengxuan had no reason to ask more questions. She nodded and went into the house with the help of Gu Yusheng. He said while walking, “Xuan’er, It’s so late, and it’s time to have a rest. We are going to leave tomorrow.”
Xie Mengxuan hummed in approval. But when he left her room, she stopped smiling.
She hoped that it was not him behind the fire. But who was it if not him? There was no villager who would harm Aunt Cui. But now...
“Darling, it’s time to sleep.” Geng Zhishan said.
Gu Yusheng stopped at the doorway and turned to look at Geng Zhishan.
Geng Zhishan frowned when he had eye contact with him. “Why are you looking at me like that?”
“Come outside; I had something important to say.” Gu Yusheng yanked Geng Zhishan outside of the house and glanced at Xie to console her.
Gu Yusheng knew that they were going to leave tomorrow. He shouldn’t have been so angry, but it was uncomfortable for him when he heard Geng call Mengxuan ‘wife’.
Geng Zhishan followed him to the exterior of the house. Xie Mengxuan sat in the room and looked at them, but the distance and their low voices made it impossible for her to hear clearly.
“Xuan’er is a maiden. But you call her so intimately as if she were your wife. Do you want to tarnish her chastity, so she can only marry you?” Gu Yusheng said in a harsh voice, his eyes full of discontentment.
Geng Zhishan sneered at his lack of endurance. He knew he should not act so impulsively, but he still did that. He answered in a low voice and raised his head, “She is indeed my wife, so it doesn’t matter if I call her “my wife”, does it?”
Gu Yusheng sneered, but his savage face could only be seen by Geng Zhishan because he had turned his back to the house. “I know your intentions. You got close to her just because of her noble identity. You’ve meant to lose your manliness to achieve your ambitions, namely success and richness, haven’t you?”
Geng Zhishan showed his anxiety, and his tone raised a little as a result. “Nonsense! I didn’t know her identity when I called her my wife."
In Xie Mengxuan’s eyes, Geng Zhishan was anxious while Gu Yusheng stood there without any emotional change.
But in fact, Gu Yusheng looked at him with contempt. “Yeah, but poor people won’t have such fancy clothes and precious jewelry as she. Do you think you are the only person to know that?” He stepped forward and laughed sarcastically, “Geng Zhishan, right? She is protecting you now, but when she returns to Imperial Capital, you will be defenseless. If you still lack a proper understanding of the situation, I will kill you, and she won’t grieve or cry for you."
Geng Zhishan was enraged at last. He stepped forward and reached for Gu Yusheng’s collar and threatened, “Then, you can have a try and see who will die?”
Xie Mengxuan looked at the scene. She knew she couldn’t ignore it, so she stood up and went to the doorway. Gu Yusheng moved his ears and said in a low voice, “If you stay away from Xie Mengxuan, I will leave you a way to live.”
Geng Zhishan seemed to be irritated. He shoved Gu Yusheng away with a strong force. “You are really confident, but you’d better leave the backdoor open in case you change your mind. Or else, it blows up in your face, and it’s too late to regret.”
“It seems I am right because you’re enraged. Geng Zhishan, you are indeed a kept man, obsequious to rich and powerful people .”
What Gu Yusheng said really enraged Geng Zhishan. He strode forward with his face getting gloomy. He was trying to throw his clenched fist at him.
Xie Mengxuan was shocked and said, “Geng Zhishan! Stop it!”
Geng Zhishan’s fist stopped in front of Gu Yusheng’s cheek. However, Xie Mengxuan was full of disappointment. “Geng Zhishan, how can you be such a person? I am so let down by you.”
“Darling, it’s not what you think.” Geng Zhishan blinked, came to himself, and strode forward to explain.
However, Xie Mengxuan frowned and stepped back, bypassing Geng Zhishan, moving jerkily to Gu Yusheng, and said, “Brother Gu, are you alright?”
Gu Yusheng covered his chest with one hand and said with a smile, “I’m fine. This man is only all brawn but no brains. I was afraid that I’ll hurt him, so I didn’t fight back just now.”
“I know you were concerned about me. I’m sorry; he wasn’t like that before.” Xie Mengxuan showed guilt on her face.
Geng Zhishan stood aside and was seething with rage. He eagerly walked up to the two people and shouted, “It was Gu Yusheng who made me angry. He said that even if he killed me, you wouldn’t be sad.”
“What are you talking about? I believe that Brother Gu would never say that.” Xie Mengxuan was disheartened, but there was still something different in her eyes.
As soon as she had finished, Gu Yusheng shook his head with a false smile and said, “It seems that Mr. Geng has a misunderstanding of me. It is really troublesome.”
It was really unpleasant seeing him acting like a victim.
“Darling, I’m not lying, and he said I am a kept man who wanted to flatter you.” Geng was way too angry to even say a complete sentence.
Xie Mengxuan said grimly, “Geng Zhishan, stop; no more of this. Brother Gu is not a man of that sort. I know you’re not satisfied with me going away. But you can’t frame him like this; it’s just inappropriate.”
Xie Mengxuan then said something to Gu Yusheng, and they both went back to their own rooms, respectively. Geng Zhishan opened his mouth, shock written all over his face. He seemed to be asking what had just happened here?
But Xie Mengxuan did not spare him a glance. When she was returning to the house, before she closed the door, she said, “Geng Zhishan, don’t call me so intimately in the future; you can address me as Xie Mengxuan. I’m not your wife. What you call will cause misunderstandings, so please change it.”
“Darling~” Geng Zhishan stammered, reaching out a hand with an incredulous face.
Gu Yusheng gave Geng Zhishan a provocative look before closing the door, as if to say, ‘Look, no matter how much you explain yourself, Xie Mengxuan believes in me!’ Then he closed the door.
Xie Mengxuan sat in her room, her dismay disappearing. Her eyes gleamed brightly in the dark as she peered outside, seemingly thinking about something. She eventually sighed and lay down to sleep.
Outside, Geng Zhishan lowered his head without saying a single word more. After a while, he slowly walked to the front of the house and sat down. A faint aroma was slowly permeating the room.
