Chapter 40: Why

“Secretary Xia, has Master Lian gone?”

“Just left.”

Gu Xiaochen hurried to the top floor, but was told by Secretary Xia Yuan that Wu Helian happened to have left the previous second. She turned her head to look at the other elevator that was slowly descending, and was suddenly stunned. Secretary Xia couldn’t help but suspiciously asked, “Secretary Gu, what’s the matter so eager to find Master Lian?”

Gu Xiaochen was too late to respond, and the whole person rushed into the elevator.

How did the elevator numbers jump so slowly, Gu Xiaochen found that he could not calm down. When the elevator door opened, she flew out like an arrow.

“Mr. He, I have received a call from a reporter from the New York Times. I hope that Mr. He can spare some time to be interviewed.” Yao Yongxin turned to look at Wu Helian with a smile. As the manager of Wu’s financial investment department, Yao Yongxin also went to the United States with this international financial operation.

Wu Helian doesn’t seem to have much interest, “I’ll say it later.”

“The New York Times is very authoritative, and I will try my best to arrange the time.” Yao Yong expected that he was lacking in interest and had already managed everything for him.

There was a black RV parked by the roadside, and the light shone in the sun. A few subordinates stepped forward and opened the doors for the two. Wu Helian stopped and let Yao Yongxin get in the car first. Yao Yongxin smiled slightly at his gentleman’s behavior and took the lead in the car.

Wu Helian was about to bend down, but behind her there were rapid footsteps and a panicked female voice.

“Master Lian! Master Lian! Please wait!”

Wu Helian paused and looked back at the coming person. Yao Yongxin, who was sitting in the car, was also attracted by the shout. She turned her head and saw a dark gray figure rushing out of the building and running towards them anxiously. And that was no one else, it was Wu Xiaoyang’s secretary Gu Xiaochen.

“Master Lian …” Gu Xiaochen ran all the way to Wu Helian, already out of breath, “I’m sorry … to disturb your schedule …”

“But I have something very important … I want to talk to you …” The intermittent female voice drifted in the wind.

“If it is a business, then report to Secretary Xia.” Wu Helian said quietly, still indifferent.

Gu Xiaochen bit his lips tightly and said softly, “It’s not a business.”

“If it’s not an official business, I don’t have time.” His calmness made Gu Xiaochen feel chilly at this time, even impersonal.

Wu Helian turned and was about to get on the bus. In a hurry, Gu Xiaochen boldly grabbed his wrist. He glanced at her sideways, and Gu Xiaochen realized how abrupt his behavior was, and withdrew his hand violently, saying panic, “Master Lian, please give me five minutes.”

“Just five minutes.” She begged in such a low tone.

Yao Yongxin heard the conversation between the two of them and interjected in a timely manner, “He, President, it is still too early. I think five minutes is more than enough.”

Gu Xiaochen looked up at the moment, looking at Yao Yongxin’s eyes full of gratitude.

Yao Yongxin nodded and smiled at Gu Xiaochen.

In the reception room on the ground floor of the building, the spacious space became narrow because of him.

The sunlight shone down, and Gu Xiaochen’s bloodless face grew paler. She was so helpless and hesitant, pursing her dry lips. Not daring to raise his head, he had to stare down at the hands he had held together.

A burst of tobacco smell slowly filled, Wu Helian smoked a cigarette, “You only have five minutes.”

His cold male voice sounded in the ear, Gu Xiaochen’s heart lake trembled. She looked up at him slowly, and Zhang Junrong’s eyes filled her eyes, her thoughts cluttered. She said softly, “Master Lian, about Zhou’s loan, I think I can …”

“It’s impossible.” He sternly refused her, leaving no room at all.

Gu Xiaochen tightened his heart and begged hard, “Master Lian, I know this does not meet the rules. But I beg you to help. As long as Master Lian is willing to help this, Zhou will go through the difficulties. I believe Zhou must The loan will be returned in the shortest possible time. ”

“Why?” Wu Helian looked at her indifferently.

By what, by what, by what.

These three words are constantly circling in Gu Xiaochen’s mind, yeah, why should he help her and Zhou? There is no benefit, but also risk.

“Time is up.” Wu Helian smothered half of her cigarette into the ashtray, and the injury was about to leave.

Gu Xiaochen looked up at him above him, sitting in a chair and feeling a chill. He got up before her and walked by. When his hand held the doorknob, Gu Xiaochen shivered his female voice and asked so sadly, “What is going on and how are you willing to help?”

Gu Xiaochen stood up, clenching his fists and looking at his back.

Wu Helian let go and slowly turned to face her. His tall body was shocking, and his cold amber eyes were deeper. There was a scorching look in his eyes, and he spit out a few words, “Be my woman.”

Bang–

The brain exploded at once, and Gu Xiaochen was sullen.

The third time, this is the third time.

He said this, was she destined to escape but not avoid. But why?

“Why … why is it me?” Gu Xiaochen looked at him blankly. Some of the people around him were women, beautiful and glamorous, so many and so many, but why did she choose her.

Is it just because she rejected him?

Wu Helian opened her feet, and the long figure walked slightly in front of Gu Xiaochen. He bowed his head condescendingly, as if examining his prey that had long been targeted. His voice was so low, but it pierced her ears and became sharp. “As long as I want, I can’t get it.”

“It’s you who fully stirred my interest, Gu Xiaochen.” He smiled coldly in the corner of his mouth.

Gu Xiaochen lost his soul, he said quietly again, “In the few days I left, you can consider. Of course, you can also refuse me.”

“Good girl,” he said, lowering his head and kissing her forehead.

Such a holy kiss made Gu Xiaochen stunned, and a chill came to his feet.

Going to work and off work, Gu Xiaochen is still a life of two points and one line at home and company. But time began to count down, day after day, she counted the days every day. Wu Helian was invited to New York to attend the International Financial Operations Conference for a period of six days.

Leaving on Thursday afternoon and returning home next Tuesday.

As the days drew closer, Gu Xiaochen became more and more lost.

Wu Haoyang did not react very much to her abnormal behavior, but was happy to open her eyes and close her eyes. He started double-entry with the beautiful female staff in the company, and he was unscrupulous to play, showing the full playboy character. But there are so many women who know that this is a fire pit, and they jump into it.

Blink to Monday, this is the deadline, she should make a decision.

At the weekly meeting, Wu Haoyang temporarily hosted the listening session on behalf of Wu Helian.

But the reality is that Yan Xudong is picking the beam.

In the conference room, everyone sat around the conference table.

Yan Xudong Shulang’s male voice sounded slowly, calm and straightforward. Suddenly, he turned his head to look at Gu Xiaochen, Shen Sheng said, “Secretary Gu, hand out the information to everyone.”

Gu Xiaochen sat next to Wu Haoyang, as if he didn’t hear it, and he didn’t move.

Wu Haoyang supported the head with one hand, but glanced at her sideways.

“Secretary Gu?” Yan Xudong frowned and shouted again, the volume increased a bit.

A shout rang in my ears, and my eyes were in focus for a moment. I saw Yan Xudong looking at her, and everyone’s eyes were all focused on themselves.

Gu Xiaochen was embarrassed to realize his gaffe, “Sorry.”

“Secretary Gu, hand out the information to everyone.” Yan Xudong only repeated the words, but he doubted her abnormal behavior.

What’s going on here?

When the meeting ended, everyone left the meeting room, Yan Xudong specifically shouted, “Secretary Gu, please stay.”

Wu Haoyang swept towards the two and left unnecessarily.

Gu Xiaochen sat down with his head down and said softly, “Manager, I’m sorry for the matter just now.”

“Xiaochen.” Yan Xudong got up and walked in front of her, leaning against the edge of the table, and asked with concern, “What happened? You today are not like you at all.”

She, who is serious about her work, may even be distracted?

This is too strange.

Gu Xiaochen just shook his head, “It’s okay.”

“Really?” Yan Xudong didn’t seem to believe. “If there is any difficulty, I can help you. You’re welcome.”

“Thank you, Manager.” Gu Xiaochen warmly thanked him sincerely. But that matter was too difficult to handle, and Yan Xudong couldn’t help her. She looked up at Choke and smiled, “I have a cold, so I’m not very comfortable.”

“Cold? Have you gone to the hospital?” Yan Xudong asked in surprise.

“It’s just a small cold, and I’ve already taken medicine.” Gu Xiaochen looked down at the time and stood up to regain that vitality. “Manager Yan, I’m going to accompany the vice president to attend the land investment attraction in Kowloon. If it’s fine, , Then I went? ”

Yan Xudong was relieved when she saw that she seemed to be recovering, “Go.”

Kowloon, Hong Kong.

The third hall of the municipal building gathered representatives from various companies. This time, the China Merchants Association will start auctioning a plot of land in a prime location in Kowloon. Because of its extremely advantageous location, it attracted the attention of all parties. It is reported that this land investment attraction will become the most intense period in history.

The black raven’s hall has already been crowded.

Wu Haoyang and Gu Xiaochen walked into the hall one after the other and chose an unoccupied seat.

Today I just started to introduce the relevant matters of the China Merchants Association, but it can also attract so many people. Visible attention.

The fountain pen on the table rolled down and fell on the ground with a snap.

Wu Haoyang picked it up with his hands and handed it to the gorgeous woman beside him. The woman saw Wu Haoyang looking handsome and handsome, naturally looking at him and Yan Yue, “Thank you.”

“You’re welcome.” Wu Haoyang smiled charmingly. “I don’t know if I am honored to know Miss’s name?”

The woman laughed lightly, and the two immediately chatted and talked, and an encounter was born.

Gu Xiaochen seems to be used to this Huahua boss. She leaned over and whispered, “Vice President, I’ll go to the bathroom.”

Wu Haoyang ignored it and still joked with the woman.

Gu Xiaochen stood up quietly and walked to the bathroom. As it happens, a man came out of the bathroom. That person was Chairman Lu who was in charge of the bidding for Yuen Long last time. Old Lu recognized her first and greeted him voluntarily. “Isn’t this Wu’s representative Gu?”

Gu Xiaochen turned around suspiciously and saw him, “Chairman Lu.”

“Representative Gu, are you here to attend the China Merchants Association?” Lu Lao asked casually.

Gu Xiaochen smiled, “This time with our vice president.”

“It turns out this way.” Lu Lao nodded slightly, but he was puzzled: When did Wu have a vice president?

“Chairman Lu!” A subordinate rushed to the side.

Gu Xiaochen said sensibly, “Chairman Lu, I won’t disturb you. You are busy.” She said, turning around and going back to the hall.

But Mr. Lu shouted at her again, “Representative Gu.”

Gu Xiaochen looked back, a look of confusion.

Subordinate Lu’s subordinate gave a few words and looked at Gu Xiaochen again, Shen Sheng said, “Gu, deputy, I don’t know if I should say something. But if I don’t say it, I always feel uncomfortable in my mind. You are, then I still have to tell you. ”

“Chairman Lu, what are you talking about?” Gu Xiaochen was curious.

“Before the Yuen Long bidding, the reason why Wu’s will be arranged to the end is not because you draw the lot.” Lu Lao said slowly, “but someone began to plead with me.”

Gu Xiaochen heard him say this, thinking of a person in his mind, but he was not sure, “Who?”

Mr. Lu silently said the name of the man, “Zhou Chengze.”

Zhou Chengze … Gu Xiaochen couldn’t help but trance. It really was him.

“Okay, let me take a step first. Bye.”

“Goodbye.” Gu Xiaochen stood on the spot, his chest sullen.

From the time when the China Merchants Association returned to the company, Gu Xiaochen was even more silent.

“What? He is not in the company, you are so sad? Even if you are sad, don’t you have to put on this face? It’s uncomfortable for me?” Wu Haoyang’s sarcasm sounded in Gu Xiaochen’s ear, she was still silent. His eyes narrowed and he stopped speaking.

After work, Shen Ruo came to the investment department and dragged Gu Xiaochen to go shopping.

Gu Xiaochen wanted to go outside and went together.

Randomly found a store for dinner, then the two went to the nearby mall. Gu Xiaochen was absent-minded and his mind was full of that matter. Why did he open his mouth to plead for her? She thought about it and couldn’t understand it, just feeling like she owed him.

This feeling is really uncomfortable.

Shen Ruo picked and picked in the mall, chatting from time to time, and Gu Xiaochen didn’t even listen to it, only nodded reluctantly.

“Look, this skirt is so cute.” Shen Ruo picked up a blue ruffled skirt and shouted excitedly.

Gu Xiaochen stood aside, dumbfounded.

“I’ll try it? What do you think?” Shen Ruo turned her head to look at her and asked her for her opinion. However, she was totally lost in a trance and froze in a daze. Shen Ruo patted her shoulder and suspiciously said, “Xiao Chen, are you okay? What’s wrong?”

“It’s okay, I’m just a little tired.” Gu Xiaochen turned back and pulled his smile, even the smile was weak.

Shen Ruo reached over her forehead and said again, “Isn’t it a fever? No. Forget it. Let’s stop shopping and go home.”

Gu Xiaochen nodded.

“It’s all me bad, knowing that you have a cold, not feeling well, and insisting on dragging you to go shopping.” When divided, Shen Ruo blamed herself.

Gu Xiaochen hurriedly said that it was okay, in fact, it was not because of a cold. Going home by bus alone, it was already dark. The vehicle passing in front, the lights flashed in front of him, and the pale face was bright and dark, and after a daze, a trace of determination appeared, as if what decision was made.

Gu Xiaochen took out his mobile phone from his backpack, pressed a string of numeric keys familiarly, and pressed the dial key.

She put the phone in her ear and waited for the phone to be connected.

Gu Xiaochen rarely voluntarily called Lin Fen. When Lin Fen first started marrying Zhou, Gu Xiaochen often couldn’t help but miss her. The phone number was repeatedly pressed and deleted, but the dial key was not pressed. Today, it is the first time in the past few years.

The phone was connected, and Lin Fen’s delighted voice came, “Xiao Chen, did President He agree?”

“Mom, don’t worry, President He agreed.” Gu Xiaochen whispered, a smile on the corner of his mouth, “But not because of my pleading, President He was very optimistic about Zhou.”

“It turns out that way, then I’m relieved.” Lin Fen was obviously relieved, and said softly, “Xiao Chen, your mother asked you to plead, please don’t tell anyone.”

“Mom, don’t worry. I won’t say anyone.” Gu Xiaochen seemed to be able to see Lin Fen’s gentle smile, holding the phone, unable to say whether it was comfort or bitterness.

Yeah, she won’t say it.

Never will.

In the rare sunny weather, when you get up early in the morning, the sun shines into your eyes.

Gu Xiaochen got up without hurry, brushing his teeth in the mirror and washing his face. She looked at the other herself in the mirror, encouraged by her own words, “Gu Xiaochen, it doesn’t matter, you must be able to get through it.” She said to herself three times in a row, “Come on, come on, come on”, picked up the shoulder bag, A few slices of bread came out of the apartment.

But she knew that from today on, the man she was facing.

He is not just as simple as his boss.

“Good morning, Secretary Gu.” Yao Yongxin gleamed in spirit and waved to Gu Xiaochen as he passed the secretary’s office.

Gu Xiaochen looked up and smiled, “Good morning, Manager Yao.”

Gu Xiaochen stood up in the next second, she knew that Yao Yongxin came back with Wu Helian. She walked silently into the elevator and pressed the number keys on the top floor. The elevator swayed, and Gu Xiaochen took a deep breath and bravely took a big step.

“Boom —”

“Come in.”

She held the door handle and opened the door.

In the cold office, Wu Helian has been sitting in the executive chair. The suit jacket hung on the hanger on one side, the outline of his cold face became strange and familiar in the eyes of Gu Xiaochen at the moment, covered with a strange hazy color, but more vivid and eye-catching.

“Master Lian.” Gu Xiaochen approached, shouting softly.

Wu Helian looked up at her and spit out a word, “Sit.”

After a long silence, she finally spoke quietly, “I agreed.”

“I will prepare a house for you, you move out. You can say what you want. Also, the company ’s position does not need to be resigned, and the public and private are clearly separated. I only tell you a little, I do n’t like children, and I do n’t like pretending to be smart Woman. Do you understand? “His cold male voice sounded faintly, and every word was like a hammer hitting her heart.

Gu Xiaochen bit his lip and just nodded.

He and her used to be one of the arrogants of heaven admired by everyone, and one was an unknown freshman who entered school. Four years later, he and her became supervisors and subordinates. But she didn’t even think that at the moment, they would be Party A and Party B at the negotiating table.

“Answer!” He drank.

“Understood.” She said blankly, very hard.

“I need to know one thing.” His faint male voice was loose, and in a second it was a command, “raise your head!”

Gu Xiaochen had to look up, but he was staring at her closely, her eyes so sharp and sharp, she heard his voice, as if coming from a distant time and space, “Why are you late that day?”

After a stalemate, she did not speak.

Wu Helian looked at her indifferently, her eyes narrowed suddenly. I saw her red eyes, the crystal liquid fell down from her eyes, without warning, and she burst into tears.

She cried in front of him for the first time.
