He Zhichu’s suggestion was very tempting .
Gu Nianzhi also had a fierce argument with Luo Jialan today, so she had her own thoughts .
She hesitated for a moment, then frowned and said, “Professor He, is it really that important to have a family? I don’t have any parents right now, but I’ve worked hard and achieved good results . I won’t embarrass Major General Huo, and I can help him when I need to . Why do they still look down on me?”
“How should I put it? Nianzhi, I don’t want to lie to you . But when you reach a certain level, it’s not possible to fight alone . That’s why you need the help of your family . You may even need a marriage alliance to strengthen yourself . ” He Zhichu seemed to know a lot about this .
“However, you don’t have to be discouraged . ” He Zhichu smiled lightly . “Once your man has attained a certain level of power, he’ll be able to prop up one level on his own . ”
Gu Nianzhi pursed her lips . No matter how she looked at it, it didn’t sound reliable .
“Professor He, you’re right . I think that in reality, these things have their pros and cons . Having a girl with a distinguished family might be helpful, but it might also be a hindrance . I don’t have a family, so I don’t have a strong background . But as long as I control myself, I definitely won’t cause any trouble for Major General Huo . ”
He Zhichu looked at Gu Nianzhi and thought about it silently for a while before nodding . “It’s good that you can think things through . It’s not like you don’t have a family now anyway . I’m your family . If anyone looks down on you in the future, I’ll teach them how to behave . ”
“That won’t be necessary . ” Gu Nianzhi smiled brightly . “I can handle it myself . But thank you, Professor He . I’m very happy to hear that . ”
This was the first time she had expressed her joy at He Zhichu’s help . She didn’t reject his offer as she had done in the past .
He Zhichu was in a better mood . He continued, “Besides this villa, I’ve prepared other dowries for you . I’ll send them to you when you’ve confirmed the date of your wedding . ”
Gu Nianzhi quickly waved her hand . “Professor He, I’m already unworthy of such a big gift . If you raise the price, how can I ever repay this favor?!”
Not caring what Gu Nianzhi thought at all, He Zhichu said nonchantly, “I said don’t be so courteous with me . If you don’t want it, keep it for your child . ”
The topic between the two of them suddenly jumped from dowry to children . The jump was simply too big .
Gu Nianzhi blushed slightly and muttered, “You’re overthinking too much . There’s still no set date for the wedding…”
“What? Huo Shaoheng isn’t in a hurry to marry you?” He Zhichu was a little surprised and his face darkened . “The Russian president has already announced that he’s going to be the witness to your wedding . How can he pretend not to hear it?”
“No, no… ” Gu Nianzhi shook her head . “It’s like this . Ever since Bai Shuang had passed away, Brother Ze has been very depressed . Brother Xiong and I both plan to wait at least a year before the wedding . We don’t want to evoke sadness in him, so… ”
He Zhichu understood .
He actually didn’t want Gu Nianzhi to get married so early either .
She was in a pretty good state now .
Although she had received the certificate, it had been kept a secret . Everyone only knew that Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng were engaged, and didn’t know that the two had been secretly married for almost a year .
He Zhichu was about to speak when Gu Nianzhi’s phone rang .
“Who used to be in charge of the war at the temple of the priest? I like the image of you being mine in the crowd… ”
It was Huo Shaoheng’s personal ringtone .
Gu Nianzhi was overjoyed . She quickly swiped her phone open and said softly, ” … Major General Huo?”
Huo Shaoheng sat in his bulletproof car and looked out the window at He Zhichu’s west mountain villa . He asked calmly, “Where are you? ”
Gu Nianzhi: ” … ”
“I’m still at professor He’s place . Something came up and I just settled it . ” Gu Nianzhi gestured to He Zhichu and stood up . “I’ll be leaving right away . ”
He Zhichu stood up as well . “I’ll drive you there . ”
Gu Nianzhi didn’t refuse .
She held her phone and walked out of the villa with He Zhichu . They came to her car . “Professor He, you can go back . I’ll be fine driving by myself . ”
He Zhichu nodded . “Drive carefully . Give me a call to let me know you’re safe when you get back . ”
“Okay . ” Gu Nianzhi listened to him obediently . She was much more obedient than when she had come .
She drove the military jeep out of He Zhichu’s villa’s iron gate . When she looked up, she saw a familiar silver-gray bulletproof car parked on the side of the road opposite the villa .
Gu Nianzhi: ” ! ! ! ”
Wasn’t this Huo Shaoheng’s car?!
Could it be that he was making a phone call from there just now?
Gu Nianzhi stepped on the emergency brake and parked the car by the side of the road . She peeked out of the car window to take a look .
The car’s windows were coated with high-grade paint . It was hard to see inside from the outside, but it was very clear from the inside .
The windows of the silver-gray bulletproof car slowly rolled down, revealing Huo Shaoheng’s handsome and solemn face .
It was indeed him .
Gu Nianzhi smiled and waved her hand . She pointed to the road down the hill . “Shall we go down together?”
Huo Shaoheng looked at her indifferently . “Get out of the car . ”
Gu Nianzhi: ” … ”
“Come here . ” Huo Shaoheng said again . He was concise and didn’t say a word further .
Gu Nianzhi felt a little troubled . What about her car?
She couldn’t just leave it there and have He Zhichu send it back to her tomorrow, could she?
Huo Shaoheng raised his chin . Yin Shixiong jumped out of the car and waved at Gu Nianzhi . “Nianzhi, get out . This car is mine . ”
He winked at Gu Nianzhi and smiled .
Gu Nianzhi blushed, but still pushed open the car door and got out . “Brother Xiong, why are you here?”
“Why can’t I come? I’m just here to be your chauffeur!” Yin Shixiong smiled as he said, “Hurry up and go . Major General Huo is going to flip out if you delay it any longer…”
“No way! He’s really going to flip out?” Gu Nianzhi was in a great mood . She leaned over to Yin Shixiong and said, “Then why don’t I stall for a little longer to see how Major General Huo will flip out? ”
Huo Shaoheng sat in the car and looked at her quietly . How dare she act like this .
Huo Shaoheng’s expression didn’t change, but in reality, he already had the urge to hold Gu Nianzhi down on his lap and spanking her butt .
His voice lowered . “Nianzhi, get in the car . ”
“Hurry up, the old driver is going to drive…” Yin Shixiong chuckled . Before Huo Shaoheng’s piercing gaze could reach him, he got into the military jeep that Gu Nianzhi had driven .
The door was quickly locked, and Gu Nianzhi had no choice but to get into Huo Shaoheng’s car .
Huo Shaoheng’s head orderly Fan Jian was in the front row as the driver, while Huo Shaoheng sat in the back row .
Between the two rows of seats, the fenders had already been raised .
Sensing that Huo Shaoheng was in a bad mood, Gu Nianzhi dawdled in the back seat .
She didn’t dare go over and wished she could sit close to the window, far away from Huo Shaoheng .
Huo Shaoheng looked calm as he ordered Fan Jian, “Drive . ”
The silver-gray bulletproof car let out a low growl and shot out like an arrow .
Gu Nianzhi didn’t even have time to fasten her seat belt when she was almost knocked into the seat by the impact of the car .
The seat in the back wasn’t very long .
Gu Nianzhi stumbled from side to side and inevitably ended up crashing into Huo Shaoheng .
Huo Shaoheng quietly extended an arm and wrapped it around Gu Nianzhi’s back .
Gu Nianzhi wanted to get up and return to her seat by the window, but Huo Shaoheng’s arm pushed her back down the moment she moved .
She had no choice but to remain in the position of lying on her side in his arms .
This position was very exhausting .
