Young Master Gu, Please Be Gentle - Chapter 1341
Chapter 1341: Sweet Times (1)
The party ended and Fu Qinglun drove off with Lin Shiyu and Little Shushu to head home. Since Little Lemon had gone for her dancing lesson that night, Fu Qinglun drove toward the school first.
By the time he arrived, Little Lemon was already standing outside waiting, under the yellow glow of the lights. Wearing a white dress with an apricot-colored cardigan tied around the waist, she was crouching down and cuddling a kitten.
Silky black hair cascaded past her smooth shoulders, half-concealing her delicate little face, with skin as white as snow and features as exquisite as a work of art. Even at her young age, her beauty was soul-stirring.
“Little Lemon, it’s time to go home.”
“Daddy, I’m coming.” Little Lemon gently placed the kitten down and boarded the limousine.
The limousine headed toward Castle Guding and just as they were approaching home, Little Lemon looked out of the car window to see a boy in ragged clothes kneeling in the dark by the roadside. A piece of paper in front of the boy displayed the words: Will sell myself to pay for my mother’s burial.
Little Lemon drew down the car window and gazed toward the boy, who also looked up at her. The boy’s face was very dirty, but his eyes were as bright as diamonds.
“Daddy.” Little Lemon spoke up with her gentle voice. “That boy is very pitiful. Won’t you please help him?”
Fu Qinglun stopped the car and alighted, then walked over to the boy. He stooped over. “Where is your mother? Let me make a call to have someone help you make arrangements for this matter.”
The boy looked up at Fu Qinglun. He was frail and skinny from malnutrition, but even when faced with an authoritative figure like Fu Qinglun, the boy didn’t duck or avoid his gaze. “Thank you sir. I wrote that I will sell myself to pay for my mother’s burial. I will belong to you if you help me with the funeral. However, I can’t follow you home right now as I wish to personally see my mother off. Where is your house? I will come to look for you after the matter is done.”
Fu Qinglun saw that the boy was neither arrogant nor ingratiating. His manner was clear and forthright and appeared to have good potential. He smiled. “Child, if you want to thank someone, thank my daughter. She was the one who wanted to help you.”
The boy shifted his eyes and looked toward Little Lemon.
Little Lemon was sitting inside the limousine and didn’t alight. The car window was drawn down, revealing her exquisite, fair face, as well as her clear, sparkling eyes.
“There are many poor people in this world and I am not a philanthropist. If not for my daughter, I might not have noticed you at all. So, I don’t need you to sell yourself to me. Someone who can’t even afford his mother’s funeral is of no use to me. However, I will send you to school. Cherish this opportunity and make yourself strong and powerful, child.” Fu Qinglun patted the boy’s shoulder before leaving.
At Castle Guding.
Fu Qinglun and Lin Shiyu returned to their bedroom. As Fu Qinglun took off his coat, Lin Shiyu’s melodious voice rang out. “Do you think that boy will come back?”
“No.” Fu Qinglun shook his head.
“I think that he will.”
Fu Qinglun lifted his gaze to see Lin Shiyu sitting in front of her vanity and watching him with her lovely eyes through the reflection of the mirror.
Heart thumping, Fu Qinglun walked over to her and bent down to kiss her face. He smiled warmly. “Whatever you say.”
What did he mean by that?
He obviously didn’t think the boy would return.
Lin Shiyu ducked from his kiss and raised her brows. “I’m serious. He will come back.”
Fu Qinglun reached out and hugged her. “I’m also being serious. I also feel he will come back.”
Pushing him away, Lin Shiyu harrumphed softly. “I can’t be bothered with you anymore. I’m going to take a bath now.”
After she had taken about two steps, Fu Qinglun caught up with her from behind and hugged her again. “Shi’shi, let me bring you out for some fun tomorrow, alright?”
Lin Shiyu considered for a moment. “No, I can’t. Shushu is still young while Little Lemon’s health…
“I used to think… Little Lemon and Yelin got along so well when they were young, and that Yelin would definitely grow up to be a great man, having inherited the best traits from both sides of the Gu and Lu families. With him taking care of Little Lemon, I would no longer have to worry about her. But who knew that after growing up, they have no romantic feelings for each other.
“Little Lemon is so beautiful and so well-protected by us. She is like a flower cultivated in a greenhouse. And with her health condition… how will she be able to find a man who sincerely loves her?”
At the sound of her soft voice, Fu Qinglun’s arms tightened around her. “So what? We can take care of Little Lemon forever.”
“You can say that now, but we will become old eventually and will leave this world first… oh!”
Fu Qinglun gripped her soft waist and turned her around, planting a kiss on her red lips.
Lin Shiyu’s pupils dilated and she immediately pushed him away. “Fu Qinglun, what are you doing?”
As Fu Qinglun held her little face with his large hands, he took the opportunity to halt her tongue. “Shi’shi, you’re always thinking about our children, what about me?”
He pouted and grumbled childishly. “I feel like I’m the one being neglected by you.”
Lin Shiyu’s eyelids fluttered. Hey, Young Master Fu, do you think you are still a young puppy who can pout and throw tantrums anytime you want?
She pushed against his chest and gazed up at him in mock astonishment. “Eh, Young Master Fu, don’t you need to work overtime tonight?”
Fu Qinglun instantly detected something fishy about her question. “What do you mean?”
Gazing at his handsome, refined face, she said simply, “Nothing. A certain someone keeps working overtime recently. I wonder if it’s because he hired some beautiful secretary and got seduced.”
When he heard this, Fu Qinglun immediately raised his brows in surprise. “My dear, are you jealous?”
Lin Shiyu harrumphed. “Am I not allowed to be jealous?”
With that, she pushed him away and turned to leave.
But Fu Qinglun pulled her back again and buried his handsome face inside her silky hair. He gave a low laugh. “I love it when my wife is being jealous.”
Lin Shiyu’s lovely lips curled upwards and she reached up and pinched his ear. “Fu Qinglun, I don’t mind telling you that I even asked your secretary about it. If not for her telling me that you don’t have any other woman around you, I would have already told Grandma about this and had her punish you.”
Fu Qinglun lit up in amusement. So she had even investigated his whereabouts and actions. He suddenly held out something in his hand. “My dear, this is for you.”
Lin Shiyu looked down to see him holding two concert tickets. They were tickets to the highly-sought-after concert of her favorite international superstar Mr. Ben. The number of tickets available was extremely limited in number.
“Ah!! How did you manage to get these?” Lin Shiyu happily took up the tickets.
“It was all thanks to my overtime work.”
So he had been working overtime in order to get these tickets for her.
Lin Shiyu bit her lips. “You hid things from me and made me jealous. I will still have to punish you.”
“Oh? How are you going to punish me?”
Lin Shiyu stood on tiptoes and hugged his neck, before pushing him onto the bed. In the face of her actions, Fu Qinglun lifted his head to kiss her.
“You’re not allowed to kiss me!” Lin Shiyu said in a fierce voice. She then took out two red silk sashes.
“My dear, what is this?”
“Just a little something I’ve borrowed from Mo’er.”
