Chapter 1057 Don’t Be Afraid, I’ll Give You A Home (1)
Looking at Xiao Yunyun, Xiao Guoshan felt somewhat helpless and greatly amused.
In his memory, his daughter had never been good at hiding her feelings, especially when she was worried about someone.
If he kept her guessing, she would really go crazy.
Xiao Guoshan suddenly realized that no matter whether he was willing to face the fact or not, he had to admit that Shen Yuechuan mattered more than him in Xiao Yunyun’s heart.
“As the saying went, a grown girl can’t be kept at home!”
Xiao Guoshan sighed. He had no choice but to accept his fate.
After a while, Xiao Guoshan returned to being as calm and kind as usual. “Yunyun, I’ve decided to trust you.”
Xiao Yunyun blinked a few times and did not react in time.
She could not understand what her dad meant by saying that he trusted her.
Xiao Guoshan explained, “At first, I indeed went to the restaurant with the intention of testing Yuechuan. But after I arrived there, I suddenly felt that I should believe in my daughter’s choice.”
“…” Xiao Yunyun was still confused. Her eyes opened wide and she waited dazedly for Xiao Guoshan’s next words.
Xiao Guoshan added helplessly, “Yunyun, it’s easy for you to trust others. In your eyes, there seems to be no bad person in the world. I was always worried that you would listen to an idle boy’s lies and go with him when you grew up. So, your mother and I reached an agreement on forbidding you from dating early.”
Xiao Yunyun seriously pondered for a moment and pursed her lips. “In fact… you don’t have to. I specially took an IQ test, and I scored high! So, I’m not so easily fooled, am I?”
Xiao Guoshan looked at Xiao Yunyun’s serious look and burst into laughter.
Xiao Yunyun could not figure out what was so funny about it. She complained, “Dad, you’re so easily amused!”...
Xiao Guoshan felt even more helpless. He nodded and said, “Okay, okay, you might as well think that I’m so easily amused.”
Xiao Yunyun leaned one elbow against the railing and looked at Xiao Guoshan with her cheek cupped in her hand. “Dad, go on.”
Xiao Guoshan paused for a moment to ponder on her words, and added, “After seeing Yuechuan, I suddenly understood an old saying. Fortune favors fools.”
“…” Xiao Yunyun pointed to herself and asked, “Dad, are you referring to me as a ‘fool’?”
Xiao Guoshan did not deny it, and he even said, “Yunyun, the word is indeed more suitable for you than for me.”
“…” Xiao Yunyun silently shed tears in her heart and coughed hard as if she had been choked by something. “Dad!”
“Well, let’s get down to business.” Xiao Guoshan motioned for Xiao Yunyun to calm down and continued with a smile, “I don’t know much about Yuechuan, but I’ve heard a lot about the assistant of the president of Lu Enterprises.”
Xiao Yunyun finally calmed down, but after hearing Xiao Guoshan’s words, she went crazy again and felt that something terrible would happen.
Everyone knew that Shen Yuechuan had been a famous playboy a long time ago.
So, did her dad hear that Shen Yuechuan changed girlfriends every day?
Xiao Yunyun could not help licking her lips and praying silently.
Xiao Guoshan did not see Xiao Yunyun’s uneasiness. He added, “I heard that Yuechuan has such good abilities for work that if he doesn’t work in Lu Enterprises, he can easily make a name for himself. Moreover, many people say that he is much more cautious and steadier than he looks.”
Xiao Yunyun could not help laughing out loud.
The ones who said those words were definitely people who did not know Shen Yuechuan well enough.
Shen Yuechuan seemed careless and casual, and in fact, he was indeed careless and casual!
Of course, they were right when it came to work.
Xiao Guoshan looked at Xiao Yunyun in surprise and asked doubtfully, “Yunyun, why are you laughing?”
“No.” Xiao Yunyun did not dare to tell him the truth. She explained, “I’m very happy to hear you praise Yuechuan.”
Xiao Guoshan shook his head and felt more and more helpless. He did not know how to go on.
What he would say next was to praise Shen Yuechuan.
He was worried that Xiao Yunyun would not be able to control herself.
Xiao Yunyun was very careful. She soon noticed that Xiao Guoshan wanted to say something but finally remained silent. She said in a hurry, “Dad, go on. I won’t interrupt you anymore.”
Xiao Guoshan said, “Let me say something to make you even happier. After seeing Yuechuan, I found that he looked to be a dependable person. Yunyun, at that moment, I suddenly understood that my daughter was so good that she would only meet such a nice person as Yuechuan, who knows how to cherish her. I worried too much before.”
“…” Xiao Yunyun did not expect her father to think so highly of Shen Yuechuan, so she suddenly could not say anything.
Xiao Guoshan smiled and continued, “Yunyun, I’ve decided not to test Yuechuan. I feel at ease to hand you over to Yuechuan.”
Xiao Yunyun was very touched, which was true.
She also wanted to believe Xiao Guoshan’s words, but she really could not.
She grew up with Xiao Guoshan. She knew Xiao Guoshan as well as Xiao Guoshan knew her.
In her impression, Xiao Guoshan had always been benign. Even if his subordinates did something wrong, he was willing to repeatedly give them chances to correct their mistakes.
Similarly, Xiao Guoshan always thought that only those who were really excellent deserved praise.
Therefore, Xiao Guoshan rarely praised anyone.
It was too unusual for him to praise Shen Yuechuan so directly today.
There must be something wrong behind his unusual action!
Xiao Yunyun almost instinctively realized that things were not as simple as they seemed.
Xiao Yunyun’s expression turned serious. She looked at Xiao Guoshan with blazing eyes, and said directly and sharply, “Dad, do you have anything you’re too embarrassed to say?”
Xiao Guoshan was stunned and suddenly felt embarrassed. He looked at Xiao Yunyun, all at once at a loss for words. After a while, he hurriedly looked away and coughed. His guilty conscience was revealed.
Xiao Yunyun’s eyes widened. She guessed right!
She cheered in her heart, took Xiao Guoshan’s hand, and pestered him mischievously. “Dad, just say it. Don’t hold back. I promise I won’t laugh at you!”
“Ahem!” Xiao Guoshan cleared his throat, and then he said helplessly, “Well, I admit that I didn’t expect Yuechuan to be so knowledgeable about J&F.”
“Is it that simple?” Xiao Yunyun tilted her head in confusion. “Dad, is it strange for Yuechuan to know about J&F?”
Xiao Yunyun swore that she did not say it on purpose.
She was really used to Shen Yuechuan’s omnipotence and invincibility!
Oh, she was not praising Shen Yuechuan. She was just telling the truth.
“It’s not strange, but it’s very admirable.” Xiao Guoshan did not notice Xiao Yunyun’s psychological action at all. He said sincerely, “Your mother told me about Yuechuan’s current physical condition. I know that he’s suffering. In this case, he still pays attention to domestic and international commercial activities and has a clear grasp of J&F’s situation, which is enough to show that he is a very perceptive person.”
Xiao Yunyun seemed to be used to it. She shrugged and said, “Yuechuan has always been very perceptive!”
Xiao Guoshan finally understood that his daughter was praising Shen Yuechuan in a roundabout way, so he did not go on but asked curiously, “Oh? When did you find out?”
Xiao Yunyun still looked innocent and confident. She snorted and said, “I’ve found it out a long time ago!”
Xiao Guoshan suddenly realized that his daughter was now totally a fan of Shen Yuechuan. He could not beat a loyal fan.
He felt even more helpless. “Well, it’s all my fault. I found it out too late.”
Xiao Yunyun took Xiao Guoshan’s words seriously and smiled brightly. “It’s not too late. Yuechuan and I won’t blame you.”
Xiao Guoshan was completely speechless.
As Xiao Yunyun spoke, her face seemed to blossom like a flower. She looked at Xiao Guoshan brightly and said, “Dad, did Yuechuan pass your test?”
Xiao Guoshan nodded and said, “Yes, you can be at ease now.”
“Great!” Xiao Yunyun pounced on Xiao Guoshan and hugged him like an excited child. “Dad, I love you!”
Xiao Guoshan patted Xiao Yunyun on the back and said, “I love you too. Yunyun, as long as you can be happy in the future, I will do anything for you.”
Xiao Yunyun smiled and said loudly, “Dad, there is already someone who can do that for me. You don’t have to do anything for me anymore, as long as you are happy!”
“…” Xiao Guoshan’s eyes suddenly turned red, and he could not say anything.
Xiao Yunyun looked at her father and lowered her voice. “Dad, don’t worry. No matter what happens in the future, I will be happy. You must be happy too, okay?”
Xiao Guoshan closed his eyes and nodded. “Yunyun, in the past 20 years, I have been very happy because of you. In the future, as long as you are happy, I will be happy.”
Xiao Yunyun knew that Xiao Guoshan had never been really happy in the past 20 years.
This was not what she expected.
Xiao Yunyun pondered for a moment and said clearly, “Dad, I hope you can live for yourself in the future. You really don’t have to worry about me anymore.”
The rims of Xiao Guoshan’s eyes turned red. He nodded and said, “I hope so. So, Yunyun, I have something to tell you.”
“What is it?” Xiao Yunyun thought for a moment, and her eyes lit up. She blinked mischievously and said, “Dad, don’t tell me that you have decided to sell the company and travel around the world!”
“…” Xiao Guoshan did not respond, and his expression slowly became a little serious.
Xiao Yunyun suddenly had a bad feeling and hurriedly said, “Dad, if you really want to sell the company, I won’t have any objection! No matter what you want to do next, I will support you!”
Xiao Guoshan still said, “Yunyun, I’m sorry. I’ve discussed it with your mother. After Yuechuan’s operation, we’ll go back to country D to go through the divorce proceedings…”
