‘Why aren’t you eating?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
Yuan Gun Gun picked up a bowl and chopsticks. Then she randomly put a piece of meat in her mouth.
Hao Yan Che sat on the sofa, and picked up a different bowl and chopsticks.
Yuan Gun Gun ate and occasionally glanced at the phone on table.
‘Let’s go to Indonesia,’ Hao Yan Che said.
‘Huh?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
Yuan Gun Gun looked at Hao Yan Che, and thought he looked unhappy.
‘Are you saying you want us to go to Indonesia for our honeymoon?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘What do you think?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
‘Didn’t you say we’re not going on a honeymoon?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
Yuan Gun Gun didn’t want to see Hao Yan Che look coldly at her. She looked down at her bowl and ate.
Hao Yan Che scoffed. He ate and looked at the phone. He thought it was pointless treating Yuan Gun Gun well when she didn’t appreciate his efforts.
Yuan Gun Gun secretly glanced at Hao Yan Che and she smiled. They’ve been eating together for months. But that day was the first time they ate a meal together as husband and wife.
Three years later.
Many events and meetings would happen in a three year period. Hao Yan Che and Yuan Gun Gun’s life together was an exception.
On a sunny day at the Hao Mansion, Hao Yan Che’s voice echoed throughout the mansion.
‘Yuan Gun Gun!’ Hao Yan Che called.
Yuan Gun Gun was sitting in the living room and drinking tea.
Hao Yan Que had quick reflexes, and avoided the tea that spat out of Yuan Gun Gun’s mouth.
Yuan Gun Gun hugged Yuan Ting Liu, and feared for her life.
‘What’s wrong?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘Xiao Che, why are you raising your voice at Gun Gun?’ Qiu Li Luo asked. ‘You’re scaring her.’
Hao Yan Che slammed the box of pills on the coffee table.
‘You dare drink this?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
Hao Yan Che and Yuan Gun Gun’s looked at the box of pills on the coffee table and frowned.
‘I… I…’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
After being married for three years, Yuan Gun Gun understood her husband had two moods. One was icy indifference and the other was hot anger. In that moment Hao Yan Che was angry.
‘Come here,’ Hao Yan Che said.
‘Daddy…’ Yuan Gun Gun called.
Yuan Ting Liu didn’t save his little girl. He agreed with his son-in-law on that occasion.
‘Mummy…’ Yuan Gun Gun called.
‘Gun Gun…’ Feng Du Du called.
Feng Du Du looked at everyone’s face of disapproval. She felt powerless to help Yuan Gun Gun.
Hao Yan Che pulled Yuan Gun Gun off the sofa.
‘No one can help you,’ Hao Yan Che said.
‘Mummy…’ Yuan Gun Gun called Qiu Li Luo.
Qiu Li Luo coughed and winked at Yuan Gun Gun to help her.
‘Gun Gun, did someone tell you to take these pills?’ Qiu Li Luo asked.
‘No,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘But…’
‘You’re dead,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Hao Yan Che slung Yuan Gun Gun over his shoulder and took her to their bedroom.
‘I don’t want to,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘Mummy… daddy… mummy… daddy…’
‘Gun Gun…’ Feng Du Du and Qiu Li Luo called.
Feng Du Du and Qiu Li Luo stood to help Yuan Gun Gun. But their husbands pulled them onto their laps.
‘What are you doing?’ Qiu Li Luo asked. ‘Look how angry Xiao Che is. What if he hurts Gun Gun?’
‘Do you think you can stop Xiao Che?’ Hao Yan Que asked.
‘I can’t but you can,’ Qiu Li Luo said.
‘I’m not going to stop Xiao Che,’ Hao Yan Que said.
Hao Yan Que picked up the box of pills and fumed.
‘Why are you taking our son’s side?’ Qiu Li Luo asked. ‘You should be on the side of justice.’
‘Our son’s father-in-law hasn’t given his opinion yet, why are you in a rush?’ Hao Yan Que asked.
‘Gun Gun’s needs a memorable punishment so she doesn’t make the same mistake again,’ Yuan Ting Liu said.
Qiu Li Luo couldn’t believe the two men who were supposed to love Yuan Gun Gun would sit back, and not help Yuan Gun Gun.
‘Ting Liu…’ Feng Du Du called.
‘If you dare drink this, you’ll share the same fate as our daughter,’ Yuan Ting Liu warned.
Feng Du Du and Qiu Li Luo exchanged a helpless look with each other. Then they looked upstairs and sighed together.
