Chapter 219: Feeling Guilty
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
The four Song brothers reached a consensus. They all believed that Song Fan was still young and in no rush to fall in love.
Besides, they didn’t consider Gu Chen a suitable candidate for a brother-in-law. In their eyes, Song Fan didn’t need someone with a prominent background; it would be better if her partner could be kept in check by the Song Family. This way, he would never dare to mistreat Song Fan.
Gu Chen’s status was exceptionally high, surpassing even Song Yi’s. He was the heir to a prestigious family in the capital, far superior to the entire Song Family.
If Song Fan truly got involved with him, it would be fine as long as their relationship remained smooth. However, the Song Family wouldn’t be able to protect her if anything went wrong.
Gu Chen was still unaware that he had been condemned by the Song Family. He gradually regained consciousness under Song Fan’s care and remarked, “You always come to my rescue in the nick of time.”
Song Fan composed herself and replied, “You don’t have to say such things. I could tell you were pretending.”
When she examined Gu Chen’s pulse, she noticed that the poison in his body remained stable with no unusual activity. He couldn’t faint at this moment.
Gu Chen held her hand and said, “I did it because I wanted you to stay. You look exceptionally beautiful today.”
Song Fan scrutinized his peculiar expression and withdrew her hand. “Where did you learn that from?”
Gu Chen didn’t expect her to see through it so quickly. This was a technique
that Xu Yuan had suggested, as sweet words often made girls happy. However,
judging from Song Fan’s reaction, it didn’t seem to work.
“You should get up now,” Song Fan said as she removed the needles.
Gu Chen asked, “You knew I was pretending, so why did you treat me?”
Song Fan beamed and replied, “This isn’t treatment; it’s to clear your mind.”
Gu Chen didn’t quite understand, but he didn’t press further upon seeing Song Fan’s smile. It was only when he couldn’t sleep at night that he realized what she meant.
What Song Fan didn’t express was her genuine concern for Gu Chen. After all, the amount of poison in his body was significant. If a conflict were to arise, it could have dire consequences. She had to control it promptly.
Song Fan didn’t notice how much she cared for Gu Chen, something unusual for her prior character. In her previous life, she could have easily left him to his own devices.
“Song Fan,” Gu Chen called her name. “The situation around you seems to have changed.’
This comment pertained to her relationship with the Song brothers. Gu Chen had previously investigated the Song Family and knew that the four brothers despised Song Fan, especially the second brother, Song Huai, who forbade anyone from mentioning his sister.
However, today, it appeared that they were genuinely concerned about Song Fan, a stark contrast to his prior findings.
“They’ve known the truth all along and are feeling guilty toward me now,” Song Fan explained.
In her memories, she loved her brothers, and that feeling still existed in her heart. However, after years of separation, her attachment had diminished.
Over the past two days, she had accepted their concern without much emotion.
“What do you care about?” Gu Chen asked, genuinely intrigued by Song Fan’s enigmatic personality. She was a captivating enigma that drew him in.
She was, indeed, Song Fan, the eldest daughter of the Song Family, yet she appeared to care about nothing, particularly regarding her family.
Gu Chen wished those seemingly indifferent eyes held his own emotions. Song Fan gazed at him and smiled, saying, “Of course, I care about myself.”
With that, she turned and sought out Su Yang, asking, “Where is your family’s herbal medicine room?”
After following Gu Chen’s signal, Su Yang led Song Fan to the medicinal herb room, where she gathered various herbs into a large basket.
Gu Chen stood at the entrance, observing her as she worked. Song Fan prepared all the herbs and placed them in a pot to brew, and she sat nearby, watching the flames.
The two sat in comfortable silence, not exchanging a word. Gu Chen experienced a unique sense of tranquility he had never felt before.
Meanwhile, the four Song brothers also remained silent, as Song Yi and Meng Yu sat on the sofa.
Meng Yu asked anxiously, “Didn’t you bring Fan Fan back with you?”
Song Ting replied politely, “Our little sister still has some business to attend to, but she’ll be back tonight.”
The other three wore cold expressions, and it was clear to anyone with keen insight that they were unhappy. They couldn’t afford to be pleasant to Meng Yu at the moment, and the atmosphere grew heavy and awkward.
Song Yi noticed this abrupt change in the children and felt perplexed about the sudden shift in their behavior. While they weren’t particularly close to Meng Yu before, they had still shown her respect..
