Song Ci released her grip and leaned back on Lu Gan’s shoulder. She wrapped her arms around his waist and said, “I can accept anything as long as you’re healthy… It can’t be that you’re giving up on me, right?”
After saying that, Song Ci stared at Lu Gan. It was as if she would make him suffer if he uttered the wrong words.
Lu Gan tapped Song Ci on the forehead.
“I know you’re an actress, but don’t make everything so dramatic, okay?”
“Then what is it? Hurry up and tell me.”
Lu Gan looked at the bright smile on Song Ci’s face. He had a hard time speaking his mind.
Song Ci felt like Lu Gan was going to continue with, “You’re a good person, but we’re not suitable for each other.”
Of course, she would never accept that!
Lu Qian stared into Song Ci’s eyes.
“Aren’t you curious why I was willing to marry your sister back then? We barely interacted. In fact, I was willing to marry almost anyone.”
Song Ci did not expect Lu Gan to discuss this matter. She stayed quiet for a moment.
Lu Gan hugged her tightly and continued, “The incident that crippled me and killed Lu Suo’s parents… I don’t think it’s an accident.”
Song Ci had read the original novel, so she knew that Lu Gan had such thoughts. The only surprise was that he took the initiative to tell her about it.
“Have you found the murderer?”
“Not yet, but I have some clues.”
Lu Gan had a serious expression on his face.
Song Ci asked curiously, “What clues?”
Lu Gan fell silent. He did not know what to say or where to start.
‘Should I tell her that everything might be related to my father? I don’t want her to worry about me ever more…’
“I can’t explain the exact details yet. I’ll tell you the whole story once everything is over, okay?”
Song Ci could guess what Lu Gan was thinking.
‘It must be related to the Lu family. That’s why he’s putting up an act in front of them.’
Song Ci said with a smile, “Okay. You can tell me whenever you’re ready. There’s no need to force yourself. I only care about your safety.”
Hearing Song Ci’s words made Lu Gan feel very guilty.
Song Ci touched Lu Gan’s face and comforted him, “There’s no need to apologize. I know that you have your own concerns. Just take your time.”
However, Song Ci’s consideration and tolerance made Lu Gan feel even more uncomfortable.
“I’m really sorry. It’s not because of that…”
Lu Gan said slowly, “I’m trying to lower the other party’s guard. That’s why I created a decadent image. I used you for that.”
Song Ci was a little puzzled.
“The Song family is well known for their greed. If I choose to marry into such a family, everyone will assume that I’m crazy. In other words, it’s the perfect disguise. I was also glad that you were chosen as your sister’s replacement. After all, you’re more beautiful. People will think that I’m addicted to lust. They won’t take me seriously.”
Lu Gan still concealed the fact that he had insomnia and that Song Ci was his “special sleeping pill”.
Song Ci was constantly worried about Lu Gan’s health. If he told her, she would only become more restless.
Lu Gan did not want Song Ci to do anything unnecessary such as sacrificing her future for him.
Anyway, Song Ci was not that surprised by Lu Gan’s confession. She understood his position. Besides, she did not feel “used” at all.
“In that case, I have to thank you for using me. How else would we get married?”
