Shocked that Mrs. Lu would agree so quickly, Gu Qiaoge floundered for a reply.
Noticing the strange expression on Gu Qiaoge’s face, Mrs. Lu commented disdainfully, “What’s wrong? Don’t tell me that you were merely putting on a show, not expecting me to actually agree, so now you’re wondering what to do? Or maybe you’re worried that I would make things difficult for you and are already thinking about how to tattle to my son so that he can be your shield once again?”
Gu Qiaoge grimaced slightly. She felt like Mrs. Lu was acting really strangely today. The way the older woman had looked at her was odd as well.
However, no matter how hard she had tried to decipher the older woman’s motive and emotions, she still could not find an answer.
A beat later, she shook her head and replied, “Mrs. Lu, that’s not what I was thinking of.”
