Chapter 508 – Everyone deserves a sincere love (1)
Miss Shui’s rouge store opened, so she naturally moved out of the estate. Recently, Ning Yuxuan would be unable to find Guibai. Guibai’s disappearances increased over time.
“Strange, where is he?” Standing at the study’s doorway, the marquis was slightly at a loss.
Ji Man came over to him with snacks. Raising her eyebrows, she asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Guibai usually stays by my side, but lately, there are many times when I don’t see him. I end up having to assign other people to do tasks that would usually be done by him,” said Ning Yuxuan gloomily, “He requested time off the day before yesterday. I thought he would be back by today, but it seems he hasn’t yet.”
Ji Man thought it over as she pulled him into the study and put down a plate of snacks. “He’s probably busy with something and got delayed. You don’t need to worry too much. He’s served you for so many years.”
Ning Yuxuan sat down and considered for a while before asking, “Did he go see Miss Shui?”
The corners of Ji Man’s lips twitched. “Didn’t we already noticed this when he brought her back? It’s really obvious that Guibai is interested in Miss Shui.”
Although Miss Shui was a widow, she was a virtuous person and also good at managing a household. She had suffered a lot in the past years. It would be pretty good if there was a good man to cherish her.
“It’s like that, huh.” Having figured things out, Marquis Moyu’s forehead relaxed. “Then, he should just go over to her home and propose. He’s been dawdling around her for so long, and he still hasn’t succeeded in winning her over?”
Ji Man nodded too. Guibai seemed like a stupidly cute person. In addition, he frequently looked at himself in the mirror. He had probably already gotten adled from doing that too much. If they could help him out with this matter, they should.
Just as they were thinking about him, he had already returned on his own. His expression looked slightly grave.
“Guibai, come over here.” Ning Yuxuan looked very amicable. He looked a lot like the aunties in neighbourhood committees. He looked at Guibai very gently and said, “Is something bothering you?”
Guibai wasn’t used to Marquis Moyu acting this way. He froze in surprise for a long time before finally answering, “This subordinate is fine. It’s only… this servant wishes to take a few more days off.”
“To do what?” Ning Yuxuan raised his eyebrows.
Guibai paused for a moment. “To get married.”
What? The other people in the room were stunned. They had still been thinking about helping him, but he had already progressed to the point of getting married?
“This subordinate proposed to Miss Shui, and she agreed. The wedding ceremony will be simple.” Embarrassed, Guibai said, “We’re already gotten to this old age.”
His words stifled Ji Man for a long time. She blinked and repeated his words, “You propose to Miss Shui, and she agreed?”
“Why do you have such a grave expression then?” Ji Man didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “I thought something bad had happened.
Guibai wryly smiled. It really couldn’t be considered a super happy event, ah. They were just two people looking for someone to spend their life with. He had smoothly said his proposal, and she had agreed without showing any strong emotion.
There really hadn’t been any feeling of excitement, ah.
Following after the marquis and madam every day and seeing their daily displays of conjugal love until he had gotten used to it, Guibai also desired a deep love. Even though not everyone could have such an ardent love like the marquis and madam, there should still be a mutually good impression and caring adoration between two people in a relationship.
However, his conversation with Miss Shui went like this:
“This one isn’t young anymore. It’s about time for this one to get married.”
“Miss Shui, would you be willing to spend your life with this one?”
During this exchange, the two people’s expressions resembled sculptures. After they had come to an agreement, he went to look for a matchmaker to write a marriage document, set a date for the wedding, and came back to ask for time off and prepared to get married.
“This one doesn’t know if Miss Shui agreed out of impulse.” Guiba sighed. “Still, no matter what, we’ll get married anyways.”
Ji Man raised her eyebrows. These two people were clearly interested in each other. Why was he still showing such an unhappy face after getting engaged?
Ning Yuxuan looked at Guibai for a while, then he said, “You’ve been following me for many years. I’ll naturally pay for the betrothal gifts. You don’t have to worry about that.”
“Thank you, my lord.” Guibai bowed,
“You can leave to go and get prepared.”
Ji Man propped up her chin in her hand and watched as Guibai took two steps before turning to look at them.
Marquis Moyu and Ji Man were sitting next to each other. Even though they weren’t doing anything special, it still felt like a scene of conjugal love.
Guibai sighed. He was truly worried that Miss Shui didn’t like him and that what little feelings she had for him now would dim further when they spent more time together.
If she liked him, then she should act like madam, ah. Although madam wasn’t wouldn’t say anything, she clearly knew the marquis’s favorite foods and where he would be at certain times of the day. Moreover, she would appear whenever he needed her. Those two looked well-matched when they were standing together.
And, a man should act like the marquis. Cold and calm on the outside, but full of emotions and thoughts inside. He frequently bickered with madam, but on the way back from the imperial court, he never forgot to buy trinkets for her. He also tolerated Young Miss’s various destructive behaviors.
Guibai felt that he had already been ruined by watching their interactions. He now felt that a relationship would be intolerable if it wasn’t ardent.
Full of apprehension, he got married and had his wedding night. Afterwards, he called Miss Shui by her first name, Huayue. They lived in the marquis’s estate. Miss Shui employed people to manage the rouge shop, and the two of them embarked on a dull, ordinary life. It truly was very dull without even the slightest ups or downs. Their life was like a calm ocean without any waves.
