Ch. 55 Missing daughter
Seeing that Jiang Juan had not moved for a long time, Xie Jingxian also looked up to see the news, and then looked at Jiang Juan again, and asked in a low voice, “Know?”
Jiang Juan came back to his senses, shook his head and said, “Oh, I don’t know him, I just think this old man looks very energetic and handsome.”
Xu Rang lowered his head and stared at his mobile phone, as if waiting for some message, but the mobile phone was silent, and there was no sound at all.
Xu Rang was a little disappointed. Hearing the conversation between Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian, he raised his head, glanced at the TV, and said, “Gu Jingzhu, my dad has been talking a lot about him lately, my ears almost got calluses. “
Jiang Juan said, “Oh, what did Uncle say?”
Xu Rang put the phone aside and said, “Just say that Gu Jingzhu is very amazing.” Xu Rang is someone who likes talking a lot, and writing the paper for two hours can be considered to be suffocating him, and someone has not replied to him for a long time. Now, he also wanted to find something to divert his attention.
Xu Rang looked at Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian and said, “Do you know who this Gu Jingzhu is? Let me tell you a little bit about him. He is a legend…”
As someone who has read the original book, Jiang Juan certainly knows who Gu Jingzhu is. Gu Jingzhu was born in a famous family, graduated from a famous school, and is a business genius, but the focus of Gu’s development has been overseas in recent years, so there is no chance for anyone in China to climb up to him.
After Xu Rang finished talking about Gu Jingzhu’s life story, he couldn’t help sighing, “This old man is in his 70s this year, and he looks pretty tough. When he comes back, I don’t know how many celebrities and wealthy people in the country are going to be in a hurry to fawn over him.”
Thinking of the description in the book, Jiang Juan glanced at Xie Jingxian from the corner of his eyes. He completely let go of his strength, let himself fall into the sofa, and nodded with a smile, “Yes, it will be a lot of fun for a while.”
When Jiang Juan said this, there was a bit of schadenfreude in his voice, and Xie Jingxian couldn’t help but glance at him, not understanding why he was in such a good mood.
Jiang Juan pursed his lips, not paying attention to Xie Jingxian’s gaze on him, he said to Xu Rang, “Give me that orange.”
Xu Rang threw an orange to Jiang Juan, don’t know what he thought of, as he said, “Hey, do you know why this old man Gu wants to return to China to develop?”
Jiang Juan peeled the orange, raised his eyebrows and said, “You know?”
Xie Jingxian was not interested in the topic they were talking about. He took out a red pen and marked the wrong answer on Jiang Juan’s test paper.
Jiang Juan noticed it, and leaned over with the half-peeled orange, “I didn’t solve this problem correctly? Where did I go wrong?”
Xie Jingxian tapped on the paper, “The first and second questions are all right, but the formula for the third question is wrong.” He wrote down the correct formula besides the question.
Jiang Juan blinked, and then showed an expression of sudden realization, “So that’s how it is.”
Looking at the heads of Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian that were almost sticking to each other, Xu Rang patted the table with some dissatisfaction, “Brother Juan, are you listening to me!”
Jiang Juan is very good at peeling oranges. He has already finished peeling while saying those few sentences. He broke off a piece and stuffed it into Xie Jingxian’s mouth, then he looked up at Xu Rang, “You say, I’m listening.”
Xu Rang adjusted his sitting posture, and then said, “This old man Gu was very amazing when he was young. He founded Gu’s enterprise single handedly, but there were many obstacles in his way. His partner and a former good brother betrayed him. He also kidnapped his two-year-old daughter and threw her somewhere. This old man Gu has been looking for her for decades, but the world is so big, it is not so easy to find a person. To say that person is really not a good thing, taking out the grievances between adults onto a child, tsk.”
Jiang Juan naturally knew what Xu Rang was saying.
When Gu Jingzhu was young, he had a partner with whom he started a business together. They worked hard, and forged their road ahead together, watching their dreams come true little by little, but just like all the cliché stories, Gu Jingzhu’s most trusted brother, betrayed him.
In order to prove that he was stronger than Gu Jingzhu, that person did countless illegal things. In the end, he even kidnapped Gu Jingzhu’s two-year-old daughter before he was caught.
The man claimed that Gu Jingzhu’s daughter was thrown into the mountains by him to feed the wolves, and there were no bones left. Gu Jingzhu naturally couldn’t accept this news. He sent people countless times to find his daughter’s whereabouts, but nothing was found.
Although Gu Jingzhu never gave up looking for his daughter, this place was obviously filled with bad memories for them. In addition, Mrs. Gu was seriously ill after losing her daughter and needed to rest, so they went abroad, and were there for decades.
A few months ago, the man who kidnapped Gu Jingzhu’s daughter was found to have advanced liver cancer, and his death was approaching. His last wish was to see Gu Jingzhu.
The man revealed that the child was not dead, he did not throw the child into the mountains to feed the wolf, but let someone give the child away. It’s just that after so many years, the insider had died at the beginning, so he didn’t know the specific situation of the child, but only the vague direction.
That person had been fighting against Gu Jingzhu for so long and hated him very much. Before he died, he might just want to play with Gu Jingzhu, but for Gu Jingzhu, there was a shred of hope that he would never give up.
Gu Jingzhu began to order people to search in the direction that the man said. After a few months, he finally got some news, so he returned to China.
Jiang Juan didn’t actually get to know so much about Gu Jingzhu from the novel.
After Jiang Juan finished eating the oranges, he wiped his hands with a tissue. The mobile screen in front of him was still lit up, and the interface displayed a post about Gu Jingzhu.
There is no airtight wall in this world, and the Gu family’s affairs have long been spread and countless insiders have come out to break the news. Although it is difficult to judge whether it is true or false, the probability of it being true is high.
After the news that the daughter of the Gu family was possibly still alive and even in the country, not only the Gu family, but many people were also looking for her. Mr. Gu only has one daughter. He is old now, and it is not surprising that the missing daughter will be the heir of his whole business empire.
If they can help Gu Jingzhu find his daughter, it will be beneficial to their future development without having any risk factor involved.
Xu Rang said, “In the end, this old man Gu is seventy years old, and his daughter should be very old. If it is true, she should probably have children. If this is the case, then has the child not climbed a golden branch! Such good luck.”
Xu Rang’s tone was not without envy. Hearing him say that, Jiang Juan said, “What kind of blessing is this? Whether it’s Old Master Gu’s daughter or her child, they should have grown up among the rich and noble, and shouldn’t have suffered so much.”
Xu Rang said, “Brother Juan, you sound like you know them. How do you know that they have endured hardships, maybe they are doing well now.”
Xie Jingxian stopped writing at some point and looked at Jiang Juan.
Jiang Juan looked a little unnatural when the two of them looked at him like this. He touched his nose and said, “I…It was just a guess. You said that old man Gu’s opponent hated him so much back then that he even kidnapped his daughter. So will the child be given to a rich family? Maybe she was giving to a beggar.”
Xu Rang nodded and said, “What you said seems to make sense.” After a pause, he looked at Jiang Juan again, “That wicked thing and Mr. Gu are brothers who grew up together. Brother Juan, let’s discuss, one day if we will turn against each other, you can’t attack my child, just attack me, I’m rough and thick.”
Jiang Juan really admired Xu Rang’s brain circuit, he laughed and scolded, “Go away.”
Xu Rang smiled, and when he looked up, he saw a raccoon cat coming down the stairs. His eyes lit up as he said, “Brother Juan, since when did you have a cat? Hey, this cat looks familiar.”
Jiang Juan got up to get some snacks, and said at the same time, “It’s the kitten that scratched your goddess.”
Xu Rang said, “What goddess, brother Juan you…”
Jiang Juan raised his hand and pointed to Xu Rang’s side. Xu Rang turned his head and saw that his phone was lit, and the word “Goddess” was displayed on the screen.
Xu Rang’s face immediately turned red, as he hurriedly picked up his phone and said to Jiang Juan, “I-I’ll go to the bathroom.”
Jiang Juan opened a box of canned food for Juanjuan, and chuckled when he heard the words, “Go ahead.”
