“What I want to say is, ahem…in addition to the news from Jiangbei Conservatory of Music that I was admitted, I also will go to the final review today and go through the relevant procedures.”
“But I need to be accompanied by my parents while undergoing the relevant procedures.” Gui Qingtong said.
After explaining, Gui Qingtong said to Mei Yuxian: “So mom, I want you to accompany me to the school as I go through the relevant procedures for my admission, and maybe a parents’ meeting by the way…”
Mei Yuxian frowned slightly after listening to Gui Qingtong’s words.
This is because she also has an important meeting to be held this morning.
And this meeting happened to be their annual conference.
Moreover, Lin Yuan and her have discussed some things that she had to announce at the annual conference.
The timing is conflicting so it’s really difficult for her to make a decision right now.
One is a conference that is very important to the company and the other is a university event that is very important for her daughter.
In fact, Gui Qingtong can go alone.
But after all, this is the first event for Gui Qingtong after getting accepted to the Jiangbei Conservatory of Music.
It still has a special meaning.
She is a mother but couldn’t go because she is busy with her career, so Gui Qingtong must feel sad.
The meeting is likewise very important.
And seeing Mei Yuxian’s entangled expression, Gui Qingtong pouted her lips and was a little sad.
Mei Yuxian is a single parent to Gui Qingtong.
In fact, this is only one of the hardships of being a single parent.
In the case of a family of two parents, when one is busy with career or business, the other once can tend to the needs of the children.
But it’s a completely different story for single-parent families.
Mei Yuxian already has a lot of money and power, but she is very professional.
Gui Qingtong is very dear to her, so she also tries her best to spend more time with her.
However, there are still some disadvantages of single-parent families. No matter how much time she spends with her, it is still very limited.
In the past when Gui Qingtong’s school held a parents’ meeting, it was difficult for Mei Yuxian to accompany her.
Seeing Mei Yuxian’s appearance, Gui Qingtong is sure that she can’t go.
So even Gui Qingtong doesn’t say anything, she is surely sad.
After Mei Yuxian contemplated for a long time, she still said, “Qingtong, Mom has a very important meeting this morning, maybe…”
Before Mei Yuxian could finish what she had to say, Gui Qingtong interrupted directly: “Mom, you don’t need to say it, I know. Qingtong can go alone…”
Gui Qingtong is still very young. She likes Lin Yuan, but she also likes Mei Yuxian very much.
So, at this time, the deep sadness in her tone cannot be hidden at all. And this tone can make people feel distressed.
Mei Yuxian didn’t know what to say and just lowered her head.
Gui Qingtong turned her head and prepared to leave the house. Her eyes were a little red.
However, when Gui Qingtong was about to leave, somebody grabbed her arm.
When Gui Qingtong looked back, she found that it was Lin Yuan holding her.
“Brother Lin Yuan?" Gui Qingtong was puzzled.
Lin Yuan smile and said: “Sister Yuxian has something to do. Qingtong, I will accompany you in going through the formalities and in the parents’ meeting, okay?”
“Really?!” Gui Qingtong shouted in surprise after hearing Lin Yuan’s words.
“Of course.” Lin Yuan smiled.
“Okay…Okay!” Gui Qingtong nodded repeatedly.
Although Gui Qingtong’s affection for Mei Yuxian is different from Lin Yuanapos;s, she also liked him very much.
Gui Qingtong can definitely handle herself and go on her own, but in her heart, she still wants to have some support.
So she really feels good that Lin Yuan can accompany her.
She is very happy.
Lin Yuan could make up for the absence of Mei Yuxian in her heart or a vacancy of the other parent.
Gui Qingtong was very happy when she heard Lin Yuan’s words.
However, after Gui Qingtong thought for a while, she calmed down herself and said: “Ahem, Brother Lin Yuan, you are going to accompany me to go through the formalities and join the parents’ meeting…It seems like you are my parent… It’s nothing big, it’s just…”
Reading in-between Gui Qingtong’s words, Lin Yuan didn’t care much and instead smiled and said: “Don’t worry. I am not your brother Lin Yuan from now on. You can call me Dad Lin Yuan. No…The last name is wrong. How about calling me Dad Gui Yuan?”
“Forget it. You can just call me Dad. Anyway, I will accompany you. No big deal.”Lin Yuan looked at Mei Yuxian and smiled happily.
When Mei Yuxian saw Lin Yuan’s meaningful smile, she returned a fierce look, with a trace of anger.
“Uh…Will it be alright?” Gui Qingtong asked and was still hesitant.
Lin Yuan smiled and said: “Don’t worry. I’ve been to Jiangbei Conservatory of Music more than you have. I don’t know if you remember, but I have a cousin named Yu Shanshan who studies there. She also came at your family’s banquet last time.”
“Every time she also needs a parent, I have to be her father. Otherwise, her parents will know about the bad things she is up to.”
“Puff!” Gui Qingtong remembered Yu Shanshan and couldn’t help but laugh when she heard Lin Yuan’s words.
She nodded immediately.
Then Gui Qingtong turned to Mei Yuxian and asked, “Mom, will you let Brother Lin Yuan accompany me then? Is it okay for him to be my Dad for a day?”
Mei Yuxianapos;s complexion turned a little weird and didn’t know what to say. She couldn’t accompany Gui Qingtong herself, after all. She felt a little guilty in her heart.
It will be good for someone to accompany her, even if it had to be Lin Yuan.
So Mei Yuxian waved her hand and said casually, “Uh, then let it be. Let your Brother Lin Yuan be your dad…”
A strange idea popped in Mei Yuxian’s mind inexplicably.
‘Your Brother Lin Yuan is indeed your dad, but not just for today…’
Gui Qingtong has no idea what her mother was thinking so she was very happy after getting her mother’s approval
“Ahem. Then it’s decided, Brother Lin Yuan! No, Dad Lin Yuan~.” Gui Qingtong said happily then tiptoed again and gave Lin Yuan another kiss on the cheek.
Gui Qingtong was obviously very happy with Lin Yuan playing as her father.
Seeing Gui Qingtong kiss Lin Yuan in front of her once more, Mei Yuxian wanted to say a few words to educate Gui Qingtong.
But Gui Qingtong seemed to have sensed it too, and so ran away in a hurry saying she is going to pack her things and prepare herself.
Seeing Gui Qingtong has left, Mei Yuxian stood up and walked towards Lin Yuan, hitting him softly on the chest several times with her fists.
