TMMTMQ – Chapter 102
Ai Xiaoyun followed by Qiu Yuan came to Gong Qingyao's villa early in the morning, both with excited expression, "Qingyao, great news!"
"What?" Gong Qingyao asked.
Seeing Gong Qingyao's indifferent face, Ai Xiaoyun stepped forward to grab Gong Qingyao's arm, Gong Qingyao gently avoided, Qiu Yuan on the side couldn't help but said, "Golden Vision Award, Golden Vision Award!"
Ai Xiaoyun glared at Qiu Yuan, Qiu Yuan immediately covered her mouth with her hand. Ai Xiaoyun said, "September Golden Vision Awards, you are nominated!" Ai Xiaoyun looked happy and excited. There were a lot of awards for acting in the circle. The most interesting ones were Golden Image Awards in February and Golden Vision Awards in September. Over the years, her artists had been nominated for awards, but there were very few who could really win back the trophy. In the past few years, even the nomination had disappeared, so Gong Qingyao could get the nomination, Ai Xiaoyun was already very happy.
Gong Qingyao certainly knew what the Golden Vision Award was, but she guessed that she should be nominated for supporting actress award. Sure enough, she heard Ai Xiaoyun say, "You were nominated for best supporting actress!"
Ai Xiaoyun and Qiu Yuan were very excited. They looked at each other, Ai Xiaoyun made a gesture, which meant that the following news would definitely make Gong Qingyao happy. Qiu Yuan was on the sidelines nodding repeatedly. She also thought Gong Qingyao would definitely be happy.
"Also, you have also been nominated for the Best Newcomer Award!" Ai Xiaoyun said, "How is it? Are you not surprised? Not happy?" This was the first time that Liren Entertainment had been nominated since its establishment. The two awards made Gao Guangpeng very happy.
"Unexpected." Gong Qingyao responded faintly, but there was no expression other than that.
Ai Xiaoyun was a little discouraged, "Qingyao, can't you be a little excited?"
Gong Qingyao was puzzled, "What's so exciting about this?"
Ai Xiaoyun, Qiu Yuan: ... This, yes, what was good, exciting, moving, what? Couldn’t this make people feel excited and exhilarating already?
"Sister Yao, I always feel that you have no desires or ambitions." Qiu Yuan said.
"No." Gong Qingyao got up, "I still want to take the movie queen title."
Qiu Yuan, Ai Xiaoyun: ... They thought that even after getting the title, Gong Qingyao would have the usual indifferent expression.
After Qiu Yuan and Ai Xiaoyun left, Gong Liangji and Song Qiubai came over. The first time they saw Gong Qingyao, Song Qiubai looked distressed, "I haven't seen you for only a few days, but Qingyao has lost weight."
Gong Qingyao took a look at her figure, and said seriously, "Not thin." A cultivator like her would basically not change their weight, at least the changes visible to the naked eye.
Song Qiubai originally felt that Gong Qingyao was thin, but now she felt even more distressed, "You definitely didn't rest well in the crew, and didn't eat a good meal."
"I have a good rest and have a good meal." Gong Qingyao replied, with a serious tone.
Gong Liangji didn't expect that Gong Qingyao's temperament was so cute. He couldn't help but smile and said, "Your mother has too much worry."
Gong Qingyao said, "Don’t worry, Mother."
This mode of getting along was like the relationship between parents and children in ancient times. Song Qiubai felt even more distressed when she heard this. How could she not feel distressed by her daughter being too sensible?
Seeing that they had something to say, Gong Qingyao invited them to take a seat in the living room. She also specially brought out some Keemun black tea. This tea was sent by Bu Yi and Gong Qingyao only drank it a few times.
Gong Liangji watched Gong Qingyao's tea making art, and his eyes lit up, "Qingyao, this tea art is really good, do you have a master?" Even top tea craftsman was nothing compared to what he saw.
"No." Gong Qingyao handed the black tea to Gong Liangji.
Gong Liangji took a sip. This black tea was the top quality spring harvest and it had mellow taste. "Good tea!" Gong Qingyao’s tea art made the best use of the original tea leaves’ taste.
Although Song Qiubai didn’t like tea as much as her husband, but the pure taste could still be tasted. Even though she was happy, Song Qiubai felt even more distressed. When they didn’t find their daughter yet, Gong Qingyao should have gone through so much, and she didn’t know how her daughter endure it. From now on, it would be great if Gong Qingyao could grow up by their side so that they could witness her growth bit by bit.
After drinking two sips of tea, Gong Liangji said, "We plan to host a family banquet. We will invite friends and family and tell them that we have found you. We plan to set this family banquet on the 15th of the eighth lunar month. What do you think about that day?" The 15th of the eighth lunar month was the day of family reunion. On this day, Gong Qingyao’s discovery would be announced to the public. What an auspicious meaning.
After saying this, Gong Liangji and Song Qiubai looked at Gong Qingyao nervously, worried that Gong Qingyao would refuse.
Gong Qingyao frowned slightly.
Upon seeing this, Song Qiubai said quickly, "Of course, if you don't want to go back to Gong family house, you can live here. In the future, you can live wherever you want." Gong Qingyao acknowledgement to them was already unexpected. Everything else would be alright. Song Qiubai could just come to visit from time to time. This was something that they didn't dare to hope in the past.
Seeing Song Qiubai's misunderstanding, Gong Qingyao explained, "I have a schedule on the 15th." Mao Liqiang's last reality show would be recorded on that date.
Gong Liangji breathed a sigh of relief, it turned out to be like this, "Then when are you free? How about you choose a day?" Their purpose was to announce Gong Qingyao's discovery to the public, so no matter what day it was, it's okay for the couple.
Hearing that Gong Liangji was about to choose a date, Gong Qingyao stretched out her left hand and pinched her fingers. She then said, "The day after tomorrow will be a good day."
Gong Liangji immediately decided, "Okay, the family dinner will be set the day after tomorrow."
Song Qiubai also nodded, "Qingyao, do you have any requirements at the family banquet?"
Gong Qingyao said, "I will follow the arrangements made by parents." She had never been very interested in these banquets, let alone managing them.
The old couple was very happy. Although the 15th was the day of family reunion, the day after tomorrow was also not worse. Soon after, Gong Liangji and Song Qiubai got up and said, "We will go back and prepare." Due to the family banquet being advances, some things had to be changed. Thinking that they would be able to inform the world that their daughters had been found faster than expected, Gong Liangji and Song Qiubai were in a good mood.
Afterwards, Gong family house was filled with beaming atmosphere. The huge courtyard was filled with red lanterns. In the early morning of d-day, the servants were dressed in red clothes and shuttled busily through the courtyard. Song Qiubai also woke up early in the morning and wore the new cheongsam that she just bought yesterday. The cheongsam had a reddish hue with yellow flowers, which made Song Qiubai looked few years younger, she would also be putting on makeup.
The voice of Gong family’s housekeeper Cui Shu sounded outside the window, "Give me more energy! Today is the day the lady goes home."
Gong Liangji stood by the window sill and saw this scene with a smile on his mouth. Today he also wore a burgundy suit.
"Hurry up and see if the dining room is ready?" someone shouted.
The Gong family’s elder was no longer there. Now the descendants of Gong family were Gong Liangji and Gong Muqing. Gong Muqing had rarely returned to Gong family house since his marriage. Therefore, the such a large courtyard only had two family members live in it.
The banquet was scheduled to begin at six o'clock in the evening. Gong Muqing came over at eight o'clock in the morning. She had heard that Gong Liangji and her sister-in-law had found their daughter, but she had no chance to see one another. Today, she finally had a chance to meet.
When Song Qiubai saw her sister-in-law, she smiled and said, "Why didn't Sinian come?"
Shen Sinian was very good to Gong Muqing. They had been married for many years, but she had always been envied by others. "He hasn't come back from abroad. He originally said he wants to come back, but the company has something, so he can't leave." Gong Muqing held Song Qiubai's arm, "He asked me to explain to elder brother and sister-in-law. He must make amends when he comes back."
Gong Liangji said, "Sinian is still the same. I asked him come to work in Gong Group, he just won't come."
Compared with Gong Muqing's family background, Shen Sinian was much worse. But fortunately, Shen Sinian was a motivated person. In recent years, he had also made a lot of business by virtue of his own struggle. Gong Liangji invited Shen Sinian many times to join the Gong Group, but Shen Sinian refused.
Gong Muqing said, "Brother, you also know Sinian."
Gong Liangji sighed, "You guys. You also know that you will also have your share in Gong Group in the future." In his heart, there was no patriarchal thought. Even a younger sister could inherit the family's business.
Gong Muqing shook her head. Instead of asking for a company, she wanted a child more. Last month, she went abroad for four months but still failed to have a child. Thinking of this, Gong Muqing's eyes were a little sad.
Song Qiubai knew Gong Muqing's thoughts. She stretched out her right hand to hold Gong Muqing, and then patted her hand twice, "Let’s go. Accompany me to see how the banquet hall is arranged today."
The two left together. Gong Liangji looked at Gong Muqing’s back and shook his head. He didn’t know what crime their Gong family had committed. First, his and Qiubai’s daughter was lost, while his sister and Shen Sinian were still unable to get pregnant. Fortunately, the sky had eyes, and they could find their daughter. So he hoped God also bless his sister and she could have a baby as soon as possible.
Gong Qingyao came over after lunch. Today she wore a burgundy robe. Actually Gong Qingyao rarely wore clothes of this color, but last night, Song Qiubai took Gong Qingyao to go shopping and she wanted to buy Gong Qingyao a dress.
The dresses Song Qiubai had chosen were too exaggerated. After going to several shops, they happened to meet Buyi shop. Gong Qingyao went in and chose this one. Although Song Qiubai thought her daughter looked good in the dresses she chose, after seeing her in Buyi’s dress, Song Qiubai thought that her daughter should wear a long gown. Gong Qingyao also liked the Buyi dress more, so they finalized the choice.
Song Qiubai was about to pay for the dress at the moment, but because Gong Qingyao was the spokesperson of Buyi, and Bu Yi had specifically instructed that Gong Qingyao could buy any of their clothes for free, so Song Qiubai had no chance to pay. Later, as a replacement, Song Qiubai gave Gong Qingyao a pair of shoes.
Gong Qingyao was really not used to high heels, so Song Qiubai bought a pair of white leather flat shoes. The leather shoes looked a bit like cloth shoes and they were very comfortable to wear, so Gong Qingyao liked it very much. The burgundy robe and the white leather shoes were decent and simple but not losing in festivity.
Gong Qingyao drove over by herself, and as soon as she arrived at Gong family house, Gong Liangji immediately gathered all the servants, "This is the eldest lady of Gong family."
The servants led by Uncle Cui immediately shouted respectfully, "Hello, Young Miss."
Gong Qingyao nodded faintly.
Everyone couldn't help sighing. Dragon begets dragon, phoenix begets phoenix, Gong Qingyao really deserved to be the eldest lady of Gong family. This kind of temperament really befitted the status. They could say, the young miss temperament was not weaker than Gong Liangji.
