621 Gu Jingyu Appeared At The Entrance Of The Gu Residence

Gu Jingze looked at Gu Xiande. "Grandfather…"

"That's enough. I know what to do. Sit down."

In the end, Gu Jingze turned to look at Mo Huiling. His somber expression made her shiver.

However, he still sat down.

Lin Che said privately to him, "Forget it, Gu Jingze. Today is Grandfather's birthday."

Gu Jingze nodded.

"There are still so many people here. Whatever it is, we must show respect for Grandfather's feelings," Lin Che said even though she was also unhappy.

Gu Jingze remained silent. He listened to Lin Che's words and silently nodded.

Mo Huiling was currently the center of attention. She glanced arrogantly at Lin Che who was beside her. Then, she said to Gu Xiande, "Grandfather Gu, I didn't come to visit you for a long time because my pregnancy made it inconvenient to do so. I heard that today is your birthday, so I specially asked First Aunt to inform you that I would be coming to congratulate you. This is my present for you. I hope that you will like it."

"Thank you for remembering my birthday. To be honest, my birthday is just like any other day." Gu Xiande stood up. Under the watchful eyes of the crowd, he unexpectedly went down personally to greet Mo Huiling.

He looked down at Mo Huiling's stomach and nodded silently. Then, he said, "Look after your body. That's more important than anything."

Mo Huiling felt Grandfather pat her shoulder and was so moved that she was about to cry.

This was especially so when she sensed everyone looking at her with admiration.

Everyone looked at Mo Huiling and their comments lingered in her ears.

"Wow. The child in her stomach is already the best present."

"Her future will be extraordinary since Old Gu looks upon her so favorably."

"This Miss Mo really took us by surprise. She really stole the show today."

"That's enough. Spare it. Can your present even compare to the present in her womb? No one will be able to steal the show from her today."

Nearly everyone's attention shifted to Mo Huiling. But some people still remembered Lin Che, only…

"Where is Lin Che?"

"Will she even dare to show herself? I think Old Gu won't even be bothered with her today."

"Weren't there rumors before this that he quite liked Lin Che? The rumors made it sound so amazing. But it looks like that's all there is to it."

"My point exactly. I even heard that he looked upon Lin Che very favorably. Now that I'm here today, I think the rumors really can't be believed."

Just then, Mo Huiling said directly to Old Gu, "Grandfather, I specially prepared a present to congratulate you on your birthday."

"Oh, is that so? What is it?"

Mo Huiling immediately instructed some people to bring the present here.

Everyone watched as two people moved a huge object to the front. They found it a little strange and were also curious about what was inside.

Gu Xiande froze. After some time, he said, "This is…"

Mo Huiling smiled and said, "This is a purple jade screen that I asked someone to get for me. I heard that you like antiques, so I thought that you might like it."

"Ah, a purple jade screen… it's a screen from the Mingqing dynasty. I heard that a few years ago, it was auctioned off to a collector and no one heard any news of it thereafter. Many people said that it had been sent overseas."

"Is it the screen that's worth tens of millions?"

"It doesn't matter how much it costs. The point is that no one would sell it. Its value would only increase in the future, so who would sell it? Furthermore, it's one of a kind and you won't find the same thing anywhere else. Its value is definitely high."

Gu Xiande abruptly looked at Mo Huiling before hurriedly walking to her. He looked at the screen and reached out his hand to touch it. He looked very satisfied.

"Yes. I was about to get someone to look for this screen. I didn't expect you to find it for me first."

Mo Huiling said, "Really? It's such a coincidence. I only recently asked someone to look for it."

"Alright. Not bad. Someone find Miss Mo a place to sit."

The maid quickly went to get a chair. Everyone was even more confused and started murmuring.

"Mo Huiling is so generous. Where did she get that screen?"

"It must be very expensive."

"Old Gu seems to be very satisfied. He even specially complimented her."

"Precisely. It's definitely not easy to get a compliment from Old Gu."

Everyone looked at Mo Huiling enviously. Because he liked her present, Old Gu was so happy that he let her sit in the front. Of course, many people were envious beyond compare.

Mu Wanqing's face darkened. Seeing that Mo Huiling had actually sat down at the table, she glared at her with great dissatisfaction.

Mo Huiling looked at Lin Che very arrogantly.

Earlier, she had even heard someone say, "This time, Miss Mo definitely overshadowed Lin Che. She came here pregnant and also brought a present but Lin Che didn't even give a present."

"What can she give? Doesn't Gu Jingze prepare everything for her?"

"Look at the situation now. Old Gu didn't even spare Lin Che a glance."

"He probably forgot about her a long time ago."

Lin Che heard these comments. Even if she could not hear them clearly, he could still see the looks in their eyes and their facial expressions.

Mu Wanqing was unbearably angry. She looked at Lin Che sitting there and said to her, "I heard from Jingze that you prepared a gift for Grandfather. Why don't you take it out for him to see?"

Lin Che immediately reacted. For a moment, she felt that her gift was really not good enough. When she saw the presents that everyone gave, all of them were priceless gems and antiques, but hers was…

However, when she sensed that everyone at the table was suddenly looking at her, Lin Che could only stand up and say, "Grandfather, I made a present myself for you."

Hearing this, Gu Xiande turned to her and said, "Really? You made it yourself? What is it?"

Lin Che immediately took out a relief sculpture. It was sculpted on paper and was a family portrait. All the members of the Gu family were in it. There was Gu Jingming, Gu Jingze, Lin Che, Yu Minmin, and… Gu Jingyu…

Gu Lanshan watched from where she was. When she saw Gu Jingyu, she instantly said, "Jingyu is there too. How thoughtful of you, Little Che. This family portrait is more complete than the actual people at our table."

The people surrounding them immediately felt the urge to laugh when they saw her present.

Lin Che was way too pathetic. She had given him a family portrait she had made herself.

What kind of present was this? Did she think they were playing house?

Sure enough, Gu Xiande's expression changed completely.

Gu Lanshan watched from the side and deliberately smiled while looking at Lin Che.

Lin Che said, "My intention was… because not everyone is at home all the time, I wanted to give Grandfather a complete family portrait. I hope that Grandfather will look at the portrait and feel as if he's looking at us…"

However, Gu Lanshan looked up at Lin Che. "Little Che, could it be that you don't know that Jingyu had an argument with the family? He hasn't come home for a few years. Your grandfather has also said that he won't let Gu Jingyu enter the house for the rest of his life. The family portrait you're giving to him even has Gu Jingyu in it. What do you mean by this? Are you trying to deliberately shame Grandfather?"

Everyone froze immediately.

No one had ever thought about this layer of meaning. They immediately looked at Lin Che with worry.

Lin Che had not succeeded at pleasing Gu Xiande. Was she instead going to cause unhappiness?

However, at this moment…

"Who are you talking about?"

A sole voice suddenly traveled in from the entrance.

Everyone turned their heads in surprise only to see Gu Jingyu. He had not appeared at the Gu residence for such a long time… but now, he had unexpectedly appeared at the entrance…
