Chapter 1128: Ah Zheng Is The Best Man In The World
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Hearing Gu Zheng’s words, Qiao Xi’s heart instantly ached. She originally thought that Gu Zheng was tolerating the Lu family because he wanted to destroy the Lu family bit by bit and make them gradually collapse.
When Ji Nan mentioned the servant’s identity, Qiao Xi realized that Gu Zheng had arranged for his people to stay in the Lu family many years ago. Even Ji Nan did not notice it, which meant that Gu Zheng was already prepared to take revenge.
10 years ago, Gu Zheng established Gu Corporation. From then on, the Lu family was no longer in a position to fight him. At that time, the Lu family had already begun to decline without Lu Qingyun. However, this change was small. Hence, although Gu Zheng had already started to guard against the Lu family, he had never attacked them.
Gu Zheng raised his eyes to glance at Qiao Xi with a disappointed expression. He smiled bitterly and said, “It’s my fault for still having slight hopes about them, but they’ve never taken me to heart.”
Song Shijing: “???” ‘President, what’s there to be disappointed about? Can you stop pretending?’
Today, he finally understood why Song Shiyu kept calling the president a bastard. This man was too scheming. He was the same even with his wife. He was pretending to be pitiful in front of Young Madam to gain sympathy!
Fortunately, he was the one standing in the study now. After all, he was very tight-lipped and knew how to observe people’s expressions. He would not expose the president. If Song Shiyu were here, he would definitely expose the president’s true colors on the spot!

Gu Zheng glanced at Song Shijing calmly. There was no warning in his eyes, nor did it seem as if he was pretending to be pitiful or guilty. It was as if everything was real.
In front of Qiao Xi, Gu Zheng lowered his eyes in loneliness. His soft hair covered his eyes, making him look like a pitiful and gentle dog. He was extremely sad. “Let bygones be bygones. Since the Lu family isn’t willing to acknowledge me, then I don’t have to treat them as family.”
Qiao Xi’s heart almost ached to death. How old was Gu Zheng back then?! He established Gu Corporation and endured the double pressure of the Lu and Gu families. He hoped for the support of his family, but those people from the Lu family actually had the heart to hurt him. Actually, he was a man with a soft heart. It was just that he was forced to grow up after countless schemes.
“Ah Zheng, there are rumors outside that you’re vicious and irritable. Actually, they don’t understand you at all. You’re clearly very kind and have given them countless chances,” Qiao Xi said gently. Ah Zheng was the best man in the world. Even if he did something vicious, it was because he was forced to. He was still a gentle and kind man!
Song Shijing: “…” ‘Wow! I’m going to vomit!’
One of them was pretending to be weak, while the other was pretending to be pitiful. The two of them were really a match made in heaven! Was there a point in pretending like this?
Song Shijing endured the discomfort and walked out of the study. At this moment, only the couple was left in the room. Only then did Qiao Xi remember her original intention of looking for Gu Zheng.
She leaned against Gu Zheng’s shoulder and said with a smile, “Ah Zheng, they’ll definitely play tricks on us during the Lu family’s ancestral worship ceremony this time, so what do you plan to do?”
The corners of Gu Zheng’s lips curled up, and his deep eyes were filled with a doting smile. He lowered his head, his hot breath spraying on her ear as he asked softly, “Xi Xi, what good ideas do you have?”
“Ah Zheng, you’re so smart, so you should’ve already arranged for your own people in the Lu family, right? Even if Lu Yan makes things difficult for you, you’ll definitely be able to resolve the problems. You should have something on the Lu family, right?” Qiao Xi carefully probed.
Gu Zheng’s eyes were calm. After a moment of silence, he pretended to be puzzled. “What do you mean?”
The anger in Qiao Xi’s heart instantly surged. She already knew that the bastard had planted people in the Lu family, yet he was still pretending?
However, for the sake of avoiding being exposed, Qiao Xi still said patiently, “With your intelligence, you must’ve already thought of a way to solve those problems when they crop up, right?”
The smile in Gu Zheng’s eyes grew wider. Teasing Mrs. Gu was really a delight.
A moment later, Gu Zheng cleared his throat and replied seriously, “Mrs. Gu, you’re right. I’ve indeed come up with a way.”
Qiao Xi suddenly became nervous. When Gu Zheng asked her about Ji Nan later, how should she explain it? After all, at that time, she did not know that Gu Zheng was Mo Yuan and did not know the Lu family at all.
Just as Qiao Xi was deep in thought, Gu Zheng pulled her into his embrace and let her lean into his embrace. His voice was gentle as he said, “I originally didn’t want to tell you these things, but since you asked, then I’ll tell you. A few years ago, I arranged for a servant to secretly enter the Lu family. She angered Lu Xiang today and made her say some compromising words in public.”
