Sure enough, as soon as Su Rui and Liu Yue entered, they attracted many people’s attention.
“Ah, Mrs Su, this is your daughter, right? It’s a pity that I didn’t attend the charity banquet the last time. I’ve heard from Mrs Wang that Miss Su’s appearance was beautiful. As I look at her today, she’s really beautiful, like you.” A person came over and greeted Liu Yue.
“No, you’re exaggerating.” Liu Yue covered her mouth as she laughed and replied modestly.
The thought in her heart was: Of course, I’m the most beautiful in the elderly group, my daughter is the most beautiful in the youth group, and I do not accept any refutation.
“Come. Rui Rui. Let me introduce you. This is Auntie Wei.” Liu Yue said.
Su Rui noticed a regular pattern. If Liu Yue had only stated the surname, they are probably either someone who she dislikes or those who didn’t have many dealings with the Su family and company.
So, hearing what Liu Yue had said, Su Rui bobbed her head politely to her and greeted ‘auntie’.
“She’s really sensible.” Madam Wei said with a smile. “No wonder, she can be liked by the eyes of Mrs Gu.”
Here it comes.
Liu Yue said inwardly, her eyes flashed with disdain.
Heh, don’t think that she can’t interpret this woman’s sourness.
Then again, in this circle, many people wished to join the Gu family and enter Gu Yu Cheng’s eyes. This time, listening to Gu Yu Cheng and her daughter may be dating was enough to make those people jealous.
As Liu Yue thought about this, she felt that Gu Yu Cheng was not bad.
“Ha ha, you said this too early. Both of the families have only arranged the children to a meet-up. Who knows what happens in the future?” Liu Yue feigned a smile and said.
Mrs Su didn’t want to speak anymore, she dismissed Madam Wei after two to three sentences.
However, many people approached Mother Su for various reasons. In the end, without exception, they talked about Su Rui and Gu Yu Cheng.
Finally, when Su Rui felt that the fake smile on her face was almost cramped and when she thought that she couldn’t differentiate Auntie Li and Mrs Liu anymore, Tang Xiao appeared with Mrs Tang.
Liu Yue probably saw her daughter’s tiredness in dealing with this. She waved her hand and let Su Rui free.
While she continued to fight wits and courage with the ‘old ladies’ with her mouth.
“You have finally arrived. If you aren’t here yet, I feel like my face is going to be cramped.” Su Rui pulled Tang Xiao and said. She has never felt that Tang Xiao was cute.
“I guess I was probably here to save you from the fire and water?” Tang Xiao rolled her eyes and replied.
As she said, Tang Xiao suddenly held Su Rui’s hands and asked curiously, “Gu Yu Cheng really sent you here?”
“How did you know about this?” Su Rui was surprised. This girl just came in, right?
“I’m not the only one who knows about this. It’s circulating in the whole circle.” Tang Xiao responded.
“It’s that exaggerated?”
“If not?” Tang Xiao glanced at Su Rui and added, “And you don’t even consider the existence of Gu Yu Cheng in this circle.”
“It can be on the news when he sneezed?” Su Rui said speechlessly.
“It’s not that exaggerated, but it’s roughly like that.”
“But… You and Gu Yu Cheng, both of you are really together?” Tang Xiao held Su Rui and asked. Her face was full of disbelief.
“It should be regarded as the process of developing in the direction of dating.” Su Rui pondered and replied.
“My god! It’s true!”
“Then-Then-Then, didn’t you say that you and him were impossible previously?”
“When did I say that?”
“It was last week, at the school’s opening ceremony!” She heard Su Rui said that it had failed. Yet after a short period, they are together! Cough, almost together!
“There was a misunderstanding last time…” Su Rui briefly explained what happened.
Tang Xiao froze for a moment, and the expression on her face was of disbelief.
“Why do you look at me like this?”
“I’m shocked ah!”
“You! Really took down Gu Yu Cheng!”
“Moreover, Gu Yu Cheng reacted this way!”
“What about it?”
“To look for you in the university ah. Also, he even asked you out, and… Heavens, it’s really changing my understanding of this godly figure.”
“Then… You should tell me what’s he like in your mind?” Su Rui furrowed her brows and asked casually. She was suddenly curious about Gu Yu Cheng’s evaluation in other people’s eyes.
“What else can it be? Cold, domineering and abstinent. Anyway, it’s the legendary type, the domineering president.”
“Pft——” Su Rui seriously suspected that Miss Tang read too many Mary-Sue novels when she had nothing to do in the Music major.
“If not, what else can it be?” Tang Xiao was displeased with Su Rui’s ridicule.
“En….” Su Rui thought, and it was rare for her to evaluate, “Serious? Calm, reliable, a bit taciturn, and inexperienced?”
“Pft haha, what kind of expression would Chairman Gu have if he knows how you evaluated him? Also,” Tang Xiao couldn’t control her laughter and continued, “how do you know that Chairman Gu isn’t experienced?”
Su Rui: …
She suspects that this girl wanted to start the carStart the car/drive the car. An internet slang that refers to talking about the topic is related to p*rnography or something along the lines.” href=”#f2″>, but she has no proof.
“Alright, let’s end this conversation.” Su Rui wisely cut her off.
This kind of thing, such as gossip.
It would be okay to gossip about others. But if the main character of the gossip became herself, she doesn’t find it enjoyable.
Even though Gu Yu Cheng’s name was pleasant and catchy, she was already numb to it after listening to it all night.
It’s a pity that the heavens don’t grant all wishes.
“Heading towards the stage of dating? That means both of you aren’t dating yet?”
Hearing a female voice, Su Rui turned her head and took a look at the two girls who were coming this way and knitted her eyebrows.
She looked towards Tang Xiao, which meant: Who are these two people?
 酸(suān)- Sour. To make snide remarks.
 开车[kāichē]- Start the car/drive the car. An internet slang that refers to talking about the topic is related to p*rnography or something along the lines.
End of Chapter 23 Part 3/3.
