Chapter 270: This Era Does Not Allow One to Take Concubines
“We’re going to the ranch, not to join a beauty contest, so why are you making Xu Jing dress up prettily?”
His hand slightly tightened on the steering wheel due to nerves as he looked deeply at the woman beside him with a raised eyebrow. Since when had this woman’s intuition become so sharp, her brain functioning so well?
Gu Yanhao shifted his position a little, facing her. His lips tilted at the corner in an ambiguous smile as he suggested: “Why don’t you just admit you’re eating vinegar?”
“It wasn’t me that forced Xu Jing to dress up prettily.”
“I made Xu Jing dress prettily, so do you suspect that I like Xu Jing?”
Hearing this, Song Wuyou chuckled twice: “No, I don’t!”
Gu Yanhao pulled his safety belt, buckling it as he asked, “Why?”
“No why.” She really doesn’t feel like saying the truth. The truth hurts.
Gu Yanhao’s face grew somber, full of seriousness, “What if I really liked Xu Jing?”
“If you like her then you can take her as your concubine.” Song Wuyou said, half truth, half lie.
Gu Yanhao’s face sank, his eyes bleak, “This era does not allow one to take concubines.”
Song Wuyou giggled, “You’re blind if you really like Xu Jing.”
Gu Yanhao snorted derisively, “You’re trying to say that you’re better looking than Xu Jing?”
Song Wuyou shook her head, “No, I’m just better than her.”
His eyes narrowed profoundly as if trying to figure Song Wuyou. This kind of unfathomable gaze seemed to be able to see through a person. Failing to detect the expression he wanted from her face, Gu Yanhao felt his chest became stuffy with frustration and heaviness, extremely uncomfortable…
This damn woman! Can’t she reveal a bit of jealousy after hearing that he likes Xu Jing? Gu Yanhao had a feeling like he landed a heavy punch on cotton, leaving him feeling dissatisfied and upset.
“You’re very confident.” He remarked curtly.
“This is a fact.”
“Silly people have silly luck. Some men do not necessarily like women being too smart.” [TN: Don’t get upset, this is very typical Chinese men thinking. Westerners call it happy go lucky though.EN: Western men prefer a dumb girl, too.]
Song Wuyou stared back at Gu Yanhao for a second before laughing with splendor, “Wasn’t I silly enough in the past? Not outstanding and not smart, right? How come I don’t have any silly luck following me?”
“Able to marry me, isn’t that your silly luck?”
Song Wuyou’s eyes dimmed slightly, “Rather than calling it luck, better call it a disaster.”
The original owner was subjected to Song Jiumei’s intense jealousy after marrying him, killing her with a planned car accident, not even letting go the child in her stomach.
Song Wuyou scrunched her brows together as if in deep thought as she faced Gu Yanhao. If he found out the original host had died from that car accident, how would he react?
Happy, or sad?
Her words felt like sharp needles piercing through his heart, spreading pain. Marrying him was a disaster?
His pupils darkened. When will she return to who she used to be, loving him with every fiber of her being?
He raised a hand suddenly, rubbing Song Wuyou’s head, “Put on your seatbelt, we’re departing.”
“En,” Song Wuyou too preferred not to delve too deeply into this topic. She nodded and buckled her seatbelt.
The car moved away from the villa, entering the highway about ten minutes later. Neither of them spoke the entire way, making the atmosphere in the car a little… awkward.
Song Wuyou leaned into the seat, looking out the window while drinking in the scenery on the road.
Gu Yanhao seemed to be driving seriously but the words she said earlier kept ringing in his ears in a loop.
[Rather than saying its luck, better call it a disaster.]
Was she regretting marrying him?

Seriously? He still has room to doubt that the woman who suffered at his and her family’s hands as a consequence would possibly regret marrying him? This man is completely nuts. Seriously, why did he marry her? The author is running them in circles, but every time we get an explanation, it gets contradicted in a chapter or two. What in the world?
Thank you <3
Thanks for the new chapter!
Thanks for the chapter
Its a disaster
Any woman would regret marrying someone who acted like you.
Thanks for the chapter!
Yea of course it was diasaster because she went through losing her child and multiple plots against her life. And it is not even “love in life and death” scenario. He literally hated her bones and didn’t care she lived or died… So why ask if she regret or not lol
If I became Wuyou I also feel frustrated with GYH behaviour initially.. who didnt have hatred on people who mistreated herself in first place and now seeks for her love. I still confused. GYH loves her since earlier or not? If yes, why did he treat Wuyou like that?
Stupid man, surely you must know why she feels that way because not only her family is plotting to kill her, but didn’t you also want to removed her out of your life. Feeling pain the check of it, you deserved way more than that. If I am SWY I will seriously divorce you or file the paper myself. Thanks for this chapter.
Men loves dumb girls because they want a girl they can control
Wuyou too.. You and Gu Yanhao are really a couple.. Stop degrading people!!! Stop lifting up yourselves to degrade people.. I just feel sorry for Xu Jing after what she’d done to you. Not going away even though the orignal host is arrogant before is really a sign that she cares and she’s kind..
okay ,because i’m confused, i’m putting in my own conjectures.
-he didnt necessarily hate her before, but he didnt like her as shed become unscrupulous after being married. he trusted her love to be enough as a wife and tolerate her (numerous) shortcomings.
-now that he likes her (presentable self), he wishes shed like him like how she used to. which sounds bad because it makes him kinda shallow
