Chapter 1262: You’ve Only Passed My Test Today
Translator: Yunyi Editor: Yunyi
“In that case, does Professor Gu know about my husband?” Tangning continued to question Gu Qingli.
“Who in Beijing doesn’t know him?” Gu Qingli replied naturally. “President Mo has been doing business for many years and he’s practically invincible.”
“In that case, do you think you have a similar vibe as my husband?” Tangning asked before she explained, “I’m sure you understand what I’m trying to say. I’m afraid that Ziyan may be trying to find her father’s image in you and she doesn’t actually love you.”
After hearing this, Gu Qingli lowered his head and thought for a few seconds. He then looked up and replied, “To be honest, Auntie, I think President Mo and I are very different people. Besides, I’m sure that Ziyan can differentiate between us. Most importantly, love is something between two people. If I can’t sense that she is truly in love with me, then I wouldn’t waste my time on this relationship either.”
Tangning looked at Gu Qingli in detail. She could tell how serious he was and she could tell that he was a calm person that didn’t get easily flustered.
He was quite a capable person.
“In that case, what are your plans from now on? As you know, Ziyan is Hai Rui’s successor, so she is going to be very busy in the future.”
“You don’t need to worry about that, Auntie. Apart from teaching, I also have many investments, so I’m confident that I can help her manage her time.”
This guy’s answers were flawless.
Tangning couldn’t think of a reason to reject him, nor could she think of a way to make things difficult for him any longer. So, she surrendered.
“You need to understand. As a mother that knows her daughter has been in love with a man for 4 years without receiving any reciprocation, it’s only natural for me to be worried and upset.”
“I’m sorry, Auntie. It was my fault for not reading Ziyan’s letter and discovering her feelings earlier. However, I will do my best to make up for it.”
The two chatted in the living room for a long time. Finally, Mo Ziyan returned from her parents’ bedroom and approached the two, “What bad things did you say behind my back?”
“You’ve only passed my test today, but you haven’t passed her father’s!” Tangning said as she stood up.
“I’m aware of that, Auntie.”
“By the way, her father’s going to be sick for a few days, so no one will be around to call the shots at Hai Rui. She can’t act childishly, she’ll need to report to the office.”
“OK, I’ll plan out her classes and working hours well,” Gu Qingli quickly shouldered this responsibility.
“In that case, show yourself around, I’m going to go back inside to take care of her father.” After saying this, Tangning headed for the bedroom. As for Mo Ziyan, she knew what to do. She simply had to attend Hai Rui the next day.
“What did my mother say to you?” Mo Ziyan immediately asked after Tangning left. “Did she make things difficult for you?”
“Isn’t it normal for a mother-in-law to make things difficult for her son-in-law?” Gu Qingli asked. He then revealed a reassuring smile, “Auntie was actually very reasonable. You don’t need to worry.”
“Good,” Mo Ziyan was satisfied with this answer as she turned to leave with Gu Qingli.
Meanwhile, Mo Ting lay inside his bedroom with a cold expression. He was still the same ruthless CEO, but his body wasn’t as strong as before.
“Has Ziyan gone?”
“Ting…I already had a chat with Professor Gu. He seems like quite a capable young man; no wonder our daughter is interested in him. However, he still needs your approval, otherwise, I’m not completely at ease yet.”
Mo Ting stretched out his hand and brushed some hair behind Tangning’s ear. He then looked at her and said, “I like what you like. Since that’s the case, let’s get her married so we don’t have to worry about her anymore.”
“We can’t do that so easily. It’s a huge milestone in her life…”
Mo Ting hugged his wife lovingly. It seemed, no matter how much time passed, he could still dote endlessly on this precious woman of his.
“For me, you are the number one priority in my life.”
Even though Mo Ting had announced long ago that Mo Ziyan was taking over Hai Rui, she had not turned up at the office as the CEO yet. So, no one at the office had any respect for her.
But, now that Mo Ting was sick, he was determined to hand everything over to Mo Ziyan and not allow her to avoid it any longer.
Although Mo Ziyan was a little panicked, she did not brush off the responsibility to someone else. After all, her main purpose for staying at the university had already been fulfilled, so it no longer mattered whether she attended her classes anymore.
“Brother Four, I’ll be going to Hai Rui tomorrow. You need to help me.”
“Oh, you…President Mo has already handed the responsibility to you. That means you definitely have the capability. Besides, you already knew what to do with the business plan you showed me before, you were simply being lazy,” Gu Qingli evaluated.
“It’s a shame that I can’t visit the university freely from now on.”
“Your motive for attending university was me. Now that your motive has been achieved, what’s the point of wasting more time?” Gu Qingli asked as he sat on the edge of the bed.
Mo Ziyan chuckled and nodded her head, “I guess you’re right.”
In the end, Mo Ziyan had no choice but to put on her white suit and turn up at Hai Rui the next day.
Meanwhile, Gu Qingli turned up at the university as usual.
However, it had been a good few days since Mo Ziyan’s roommates saw her, so they started to wonder what was going on. Was Gu Qingli taking advantage of her every night and making it impossible for her to get out of bed?
In the end, they could no longer resist. So, they went to question Gu Qingli after their class finished, “Professor Gu, what’s going on with Ziyan? Why hasn’t she been attending class?”
“I’m afraid she won’t be attending class anymore. She returned to work…”
“But, she never told us that she found a job.”
Gu Qingli revealed a meaningful smile. It seemed, Mo Ziyan had kept an extremely low profile and not told anyone about her identity as the new CEO of Hai Rui.
“I’ll let her tell you about it later.”
“So mysterious…” Mo Ziyan’s roommates looked at each other, but Gu Qingli wouldn’t divulge any more information to them.
All they could do was wait for Mo Ziyan to return to the university so they could properly question her.
Meanwhile, how was the new CEO of Hai Rui doing?
Mo Ziyan was nowhere near as cold and intimidating as Mo Ting. In fact, she looked too young to be heading the board meeting at Hai Rui.
But, she listened intently as the staff briefed her on everything that was happening with the business, even though she looked more like an intern than the new CEO.
After everyone finished their briefings, Mo Ziyan finally spoke, “The public relations department, this may be a short briefing, but I didn’t want to hear lies. The two PR events you were in charge of last month didn’t go too well, could you please explain what happened in detail?”
