When she heard all that, Gu Qingyao could only think of one word to express her feelings.
When Ji Mingyue saw that her good friend was upset over her affairs, she hurriedly tugged at Gu Qingyao’s hand. “Calm down, Yao Yao. It’s been so many years, it doesn’t bother me anymore. Anyway, my parents, uncles and older brothers are all very good to me. They’ve been worried sick over the Bai family matter. I have to soldier on and lead a good life so that I don’t let them down!
“Don’t worry about me. Bai Chi’s words may be disgusting, but as long as I don’t take it to heart, it doesn’t matter. Let’s go! We can have a good chat. You’ve been overseas for so many years – you’re even prettier now. Tell me what it’s like overseas!”
When Gu Qingyao saw her expression, she switched to a more cheerful subject and then brought her back to the Gu house.
“Let’s go! I have presents for you! The clothes and shoes I sent you last time were just part of it. There are cosmetics too. I have to teach you how to use them, so I haven’t given them to you. Let’s go to my house!”
Ji Mingyue was rather shy!
“Erm… you’ve even brought me cosmetics? I… I don’t need them. The clothes and shoes are enough. I… I’ve got a present for you too! I’ll go home and get it!”
Gu Qingyao was amused. “You can bring your present next time. We’re nearer to my house. Let’s go there first.”
As they walked along, they met Gu Jinhang on his bicycle.
He smiled the moment he saw who it was. “It’s really you! It’s so cold today. Why are you out here on the streets? And with Mingyue too!”
Of course, Ji Mingyue recognized Gu Jinhang, although she did not know him very well. Gu Jinhang was a crafty fellow and was usually very busy with his work. Besides, Ji Mingyue seldom stayed in the capital after the Bai Chi incident.
So she had even fewer opportunities to interact with Gu Jinhang.
But the Ji and Gu families were on good terms, so she knew who he was.
Ji Mingyue greeted Gu Jinhang.
Gu Qingyao said, “Second Brother, I was just out for some fun when I ran into Mingyue. I was about to bring her to my house to fetch a present!”
It was snowing. The weather had been fine just now, but the sky suddenly darkened, and now it was snowing.
Gu Jinhang looked at the snowy sky and said, “The snow seems to be getting heavier! The two of you had better not catch a cold. Hurry home. I’ll let you have the bicycle. I can walk home.”
Gu Qingyao was startled. She looked at her Second Cousin’s large bicycle…
To be honest, during her many years overseas, she had learnt to drive and even to drag race or drive a heavy vehicle, but she had really not touched a bicycle like that.
It was the old-fashioned type and was very tall, with a large rack. Second Cousin’s bicycle was a men’s bicycle and was much taller than a ladies’ bicycle.
Gu Qingyao knew how to ride a bicycle. It was no problem to cycle by herself.
But it was snowing, the roads were slippery, and with Ji Mingyue, surely… she would be all right!
She turned and glanced at Ji Mingyue. Ji Mingyue laughed awkwardly. “This… I don’t know how to cycle with a pillion rider!”
Gu Qingyao: “…”
“I’ll cycle then!”
She had even tried heavy vehicles before. Surely, this would be all right. It was just that she had not tried one before, and she would have a pillion rider. It might take some getting used to at first.
Gu Jinhang suddenly said, “Yao Yao, can you manage with a pillion rider? You had better not have a fall in this weather. All right, both of you get on! I’ll bring you home.”
