I Know Everything - Chapter 452
Chapter 452: Giving birth to a daughter like Yang Shu.
“Little Gu, came out to exercise?”
In a mid-range residential area in Huajin, on a spacious pedestrian walk, a few aunties that went out to shop stopped a beautiful woman who was jogging in tights.
It was said that people who worked out would look younger. This lady looked in her mid-twenties and was tall and curvy, face filled with colors and looked beautiful.
Since the other party talked to ther, Gu Shuiyao could only stop and smile.
This villa complex is outside Huajing’s Fifth Ring Road. The average price per square meter for the house here was 60k. It was considered quite expensive in 2016 where the surrounding square meter was at 30k.
But it was still cheaper compared to the high-end villa two kilometers away.
There were basically no single story houses in the community as they were mostly six story townhouses and there were 30 of them there with more than 200 households.
Most of the residents there could be regarded as successful people and the environment around was comfortable with the nearby educational and medical establishment being quite good. The turnover rate there over the year was quite low.
It wasn’t some high rise apartment residential area, which was filled with people renting it for only a few years, making it always moving in and out while the security and environment were lacking.
This little Gu moved there in June of last year.
They bought the cheaper townhouse, a 200 square meters one and spent 9 million.
There was nothing special about this.
There were more wealthy people out there so what was a 9 million house? There were people that bought houses worth tens or hundreds of millions of yuan in Huajin.
But there was someone special in that family.
The special thing was that they had a very good daughter.
At first, everyone didn’t notice it as they only knew that this little girl was very beautiful but didn’t talk much. At the same time, she only made an appearance once or twice during summer vacation.
It wasn’t until August when a movie called ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ won the Golden Lion in Venice, Italy, and also won the Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress that they realized it after seeing the pictures and video of the main cast on TV and newspaper.
Hey, isn’t this the daughter of the new family that just moved in nearby?
She has similar age and looks, her name is Yang Shu and her mother calls her Little Shu.
The aunties from Huajin were the one that liked to gossip the most so they were also the noisiest.
So when a neighbor saw her mother, Gu Shuiyao, who always jogged, the neighbor asked her about it.
Gu Shuiyao readily admitted that the girl who won all those international awards was her daughter.
The whole neighborhood erupted.
Although each of the families there had one or two members among the social elite level, there had never been big celebrities among them, especially in that community.
Besides, what could they be worth when they were compared to the 8 years old Venice Queen?
The little girl was the real impressive one!
But Yang Shu’s miracle wasn’t over yet as she won the Best Actress in Busan International Film Festival and Best Actress in Tokyo International Film Festival. There was no need to mention the domestic film awards, it also ended up in her hands.
Seeing that the eight years old girl was appearing on TV and newspaper as often as those Heavenly Queen, how could those families not be jealous?
Therefore, even the not so great Yang Papa and Yang Mama received respect and people would warmly greet them when seeing them.
In the past, they were indifferent to them.
After all, Papa and Mama Yang could be seen from a glance that they weren’t high society people and were office workers at best.
Now they wanted to learn everything about them, even asking when they had sex, which position they used, and what they ate beforehand.
Everyone hoped to give birth to a child like Yang Shu!
It wasn’t all those women in their twenties and thirties that didn’t like to jog but when they saw Gu Shuiyao jog every day, they also followed suit.
Jogging could make them give birth to a Yang Shu!
In addition, children who were around the same age in the residential area were brutally tortured in the past six months.
Even when they got good grades, they would earnestly encourage them with words like, “Learn from Yang Shu and work hard.”
As for those that got bad grades, it was the bamboo shoots treatment, the only difference was whether it was from their father, mother or both at the same time.
The aunties stopped Gu Shuiyao today to gossip.
“Little Gu, I heard that Little Shu has gone to the US to attend a movie award ceremony?” An aunty with a loud voice asked.
“Yeah, she just left yesterday.” Gu Shuiyao replied.
“Then why didn’t you go with her? Little Shu is only eight years old.” The aunty asked in worry.
“She already got used to it with the past half year and there won’t be any problem with Director Zhu Mei and the casting with her.” Gu Shuiyao said.
Another Aunty said in a weird tone, “Since she went, doesn’t it mean that it’s certain she will get the award? Tsk, so promising!”
Gu Shuiyao just shook her head as she smiled, “This is a just a nomination, nothing is sure! But from what the director said, it will be very difficult.”
“What’s so difficult? Is it a problem for Little Shu?” Another Aunty disagreed with that, “She got so many awards, how could she not get the one in the US?”
“It doesn’t work like that, Americans look down on Chinese’s film a lot, didn’t a big director get nominated last time and got nothing?” There was still someone who knew a thing or two.
“Well, no matter what, it’s a good thing that Little Shu can be nominated for an American award! Is any award above Little Shu’s ability? Are those awards she has fake?” Another aunty indignantly said.
Gu Shuiyao just listened to them with a smile and didn’t say anything.
Those aunties went to her to chit chat but actually they were doing most of the talking.
Gu Shuiyao could get many praises and admiring glances with just a few perfunctory words.
She could usually feel the envy from them even if they didn’t talk to her.
It wasn’t only in this community but also at her work place.
Gu Shuiyao was just a small-time office worker but she enjoyed the same level of respect as the director and even the director was polite to her.
She felt quite satisfied by that and even though she and her husband should work hard again to add a younger brother or sister to Liitle Shu, what if they were just as good as Yang Shu?
Thirty years old was still young!
