Why did you arrive late that day?
Gu Xiaochen thought he would ask her about her relationship with the Zhou family and how she would agree, but she did not expect that he would ask her why she was late. The wound that had been gently opened by him bleeds out at once, as if the heart was severely cut with a knife, so painful that she couldn’t help crying.
Gu Xiaochen hurriedly lowered his head and reached out to wipe the tears.
She rarely cries and does not allow herself to cry.
That was what the cowardly person would do. Even when Lin Fen was married, she was just insomnia alone until dawn. The next day, she didn’t want to go to school at all.
If she did n’t think about the debate, she would shut herself down all day.
She didn’t want him to see her weakness, and swallowed sourly, but still the answer at the time, understatement, “
Overslept .” Her sudden crying made Wu Helian silent.
He stared at her hanging head and moved his lips, as if to say something.
But people stopped
talking, and Shen Sheng said, “Go out to work.” Gu Xiaochen nodded and left when he got up. But she stopped and asked softly, “I … want to know … how long is the time limit?”
The woman who was him was a shameless underground lover. How long is the deadline.
Wu Helian’s deep eyes were cold and cold, and said indifferently, “The day when Zhou returned to the loan is the end time.”
Gu Xiaochen said “en” and finally turned around and slowly walked out of the office. How much courage she needs to face all this, and how much courage she needs to accept the deal. Until the backhand took the door, her heart suddenly emptied.
And she didn’t look up from beginning to end, and didn’t look at him.
There was silence all around, and the “click” of the lighter sounded.
With a cigarette in his left hand, Wu Helian’s cold face didn’t have half the temperature.
After returning to the investment department, Gu Xiaochen sorted out his emotions. She then took the document to the deputy general office, where Wu Haoyang and Yao Yongxin were both present. The moment the door opened, the two looked up at her at the same time.
Gu Xiaochen smiled faintly, “Vice President, Manager Yao.”
Wu Haoyang said nothing, but Yao Yongxin noticed her subtle changes.
“There are twenty-three companies competing in the Kowloon Land Merchants Association, and preliminary estimates are that five of them can be regarded as competitors …” Gu Xiaochen’s light and powerful female voice sounded, and Yao Yongxin stood beside her, glancing sideways at her and seeing The black-framed glasses covered her eyes.
Those eyes were slightly red and swollen, as if they had just cried.
“Mr. He should be a special medicine. As soon as he comes back, you look more energetic. Did you just go to the president’s office?” When leaving, Wu Haoyang’s ridicule was very sharp.
Without a word, Gu Xiaochen walked out of the deputy general office.
“Secretary Gu.” Yao Yongxin then came out and shouted Gu Xiaochen.
Gu Xiaochen looked back at her suspiciously. Yao Yong thought about it and said softly, “The vice president just entered the company and was very proud. Sometimes he was a child, so he was not sensible. Although you are about the same age as the vice president, you More mature than him, please be more tolerant. “
Yao Yongxin’s tone was very gentle. Gu Xiaochen looked at her smiling Li Rong and said relaxedly,” Manager Yao, I will try my best to assist the vice president. “
” Well, work. ” Yao Yongxin nodded slightly.
“Manager Yao.” Gu Xiaochen shouted, squeezed the document in his hand, and said softly, “That day … Thank you.”
Thank you for the opening that day when she was the most helpless.
Yao Yongxin’s bright and beautiful face is like sunshine. He said lightly, “Thank you for your work. I’m very optimistic about you.”
“Mr. Zhou, Mr. Wu’s He called you and asked you to meet at Wu’s company at two o’clock this afternoon.”
That afternoon, the secretary walked into the office and returned quietly.
Hearing this news, Zhou Chengze was dealing with official business, busy affairs, difficulties surrounding funds and media pressure, all of which made him look tired and exhausted. The eyes under the silver-rimmed glasses were covered with red blood, and apparently they had not slept well for days.
Zhou Chengze thought, Shen Sheng said, “Call me back immediately and say I will arrive.”
Zhou Chengze Shen Shen leaned towards the back of the chair like a knife-cut handsome face with doubts.
At two o’clock in the afternoon, Zhou Chengze really arrived as scheduled. He was taken to the meeting room by Secretary Xia who came to receive him. “Mr.
Zhou , please wait.” Zhou Chengze sat in his chair and waited quietly. .
Zhou Chengze stood up and held out his hand to him, “He Zong.”
“Sit.” Wu Helian said in a deep voice, shaking hands with him.
The two were of similar ages, each sitting on the side of the conference table.
Wu Helian said straightforwardly, “Wu can provide Zhou’s loan in exchange for 30% of Zhou’s shares.”
Facing the financial giant who just boarded the New York Times, Zhou Chengze calmly faced Shen Sheng replied, “General Manager He is not afraid that Zhou’s loan will still be out of trouble. This loan will have to be paid.”
“I will change my mind at any time.” Wu Helian lowered her eyes, hands folded Hold it on your chest.
After stalemate for a few seconds, Zhou Chengze finally said, “I promised to exchange the terms.”
“Secretary Xia.” Wu Helian shouted, Xia Yuan immediately took out the document contract that she had drafted, and she placed the contract in duplicate. front.
The two exchanged signatures one after another.
“The money will arrive in Zhou’s account tomorrow.” After the negotiation, Wu Helian got up and left.
Zhou Chengze left with his subordinates until he got back in the car, his expression was still not cheerful. The secretary on the side saw his expression haze and couldn’t help but be confused. The loan issue was finally resolved, and I should be relieved. But he didn’t seem very happy.
The car drove forward, and Zhou Chengze turned his head to look at the Wu’s building, blue sky and white clouds.
Zhou Chengze was thoughtful.
Before leaving work, Gu Xiaochen received a call from Wu Helian.
“I have something tonight, come back later. You can take a taxi to Yinshen Mansion, Room 601, Building C. You don’t need to bring anything, I will buy all new ones for you.” Hang up the phone directly.
Gu Xiaochen put down the phone and his heart sank.
Back home, Gu Xiaochen looked around the deserted apartment without people. She walked into the bedroom and simply packed her luggage. In fact, there is nothing, a few clothes, a few books she likes, and a few pots. There was still food in the refrigerator, and she was reluctant to waste it and simply took it away.
Carrying the luggage slowly out of the apartment, she couldn’t help but look back.
In fact, last night, Gu Xiaochen dreamed of Gu Qing.
She seldom dreamed of Gu Qing. She wanted to dream so much, but she had no chance. But yesterday I had a miracle dream. The surroundings were too dim, and Gu Qing’s figure was very vague, but the familiar face was still as young and simple as the city, that was her most beloved … father.
He just asked her, “Chenchen, is our family scattered?”
She stood in front of Gu Qing and said softly, “Dad. My mother is here, and I am also. Our family is not scattered.”
Not scattered, really not scattered . She and her mother are still there.
It ’s just not staying together.
Gu Xiaochen turned off the light and the door, and locked the memories of the entire apartment.
Standing on the roadside and stopping the taxi to Yinshen Mansion, the residential building is getting farther and farther away. Gu Xiaochen held his luggage tightly as if holding a family. She hugged so tightly that she might lose her hand when she let go.
It was dark at six o’clock in the late autumn.
Yinshen Mansion is a high-priced residential area in Hong Kong, and all people staying have private cars. When the taxi entered the Yinshen mansion, it was embarrassedly blocked by the security guard and asked, “Miss, sorry, which apartment building do you live in?”
Gu Xiaochen froze, trying to recall Wu Helian’s apartment address , But can’t remember for a while.
“I …” Zhiwu for a long time, she still couldn’t tell. “I’m sorry, I forgot. Wait, I’ll make a call.”
Gu Xiaochen took out his mobile phone, but found that she didn’t even know his number. He called her before, and he was also a company call. Holding the phone, she said hardly, “My phone doesn’t have his number, and I can’t be reached for a while.” The
security guard acted according to the rules. “Miss, in this case, you can’t enter the community. I’m sorry.”
“It doesn’t matter, I Understandable. “Gu Xiaochen smiled and told the taxi driver to back up.
After paying the money, Gu Xiaochen took the luggage, carried the satchel, and stood on the side of the road, waiting dumbly. I don’t know how long I waited, and the vehicle passed by from time to time. Until he was tired of waiting, he simply sat on the luggage. She lowered her head and wrapped her hands around her legs. At her feet were several potted plants in plastic bags.
The night was deep, and a Lamborghini came slowly in the distance.
In the car, Wu Helian drove in to drive into the mansion. The headlights were shining brightly, illuminating the road ahead, and a black figure suddenly appeared. Her long black hair fell on the side of her face, obscuring her face. There are some big and small pockets at her feet.
This figure made Wu Helian feel a bit familiar, he narrowed his eyes and slammed on the brake when passing by her.
The car drove a few meters forward and stopped abruptly.
Someone got out of the car and strode in front of the huddled figure.
“Gu Xiaochen.” He opened her mouth and shouted her name, the male voice disappeared in the wind.
When she heard someone shouting, she froze and looked up slowly.
At the moment, Gu Xiaochen was like a stray kitten in Wu Helian’s eyes, homeless and independent. Even through the glasses, her wandering eyes were foggy and shone in the moonlight. Suddenly there was a trace of joy, like a lost animal found by someone.
“What are you doing here?” He asked coldly, a little angry.
Gu Xiaochen dulled and said softly, “I forgot which apartment building.”
Wu Helian was more angry, “You won’t call me?”
“I don’t have your number.” She lowered her head again, the voice was too soft. , Like a child doing wrong things.
Suddenly, anger seemed to be wiped out.
remained silent for a while, and said quietly, ” Get in the car.” Gu Xiaochen said “en”, trying to stand up. But she just got up, her numb feet made her tremble, and she fell to the ground again. His eyes were fast and he hurriedly reached out. His strong arms supported her waist and gently brought her into his arms.
“Feet numb?” His low voice turned out to be incredibly gentle, which made Gu Xiaochen sour and she nodded.
Waiting for a moment, he whispered softly, “It’s not numb.”
Wu Helian just let go, and lifted the roadside luggage for her before Gu Xiaochen. She quickly reached out to pick it up, but he overbearingly ordered, “Get in the car.” The
voice fell, and he walked towards the lighted car and put things into the back seat of the car.
Wu Helian turned her head to see that she was still in place, frowning, “What are you still standing for?”
Gu Xiaochen returned to her head and ran towards him.
When the car drove to the mansion, Wu Helian intentionally parked a few words to the security guard before the security guard quickly apologized. After some twists and turns, finally came to Room 601, Building C. Open the door with the key and press the switch, the dark apartment suddenly shines through.
Simple two-bedroom, black and white icy color system, calm as the owner of the apartment.
Gu Xiaochen stood at the entrance and was uneasy.
Wu Helian walked into the living room, put things on the ground, and took off her suit. As soon as she turned around, she saw that she was standing at the door with her clothes on, and he felt interesting, “Come in.”
“Oh.” Gu Xiaochen responded cleverly and took a step forward.
Wu Helian couldn’t help but chuckled and said, “What are you so afraid of doing? I won’t eat you again.”
He really can’t eat people.
But more terrible than cannibalism.
Gu Xiaochen’s face was slightly red, and now he didn’t even have the courage to watch him. He said embarrassingly: I’m just … hungry.
“Don’t tell me, you haven’t eaten yet.” Wu Helian said with a heavy look, disgruntled.
Gu Xiaochen stared at the lattice on the floor, and simply couldn’t say anything.
Wu Helian approached her fiercely, grabbed her wrist, and pulled her out of the apartment. Gu Xiaochen looked at his tall back and shouted in confusion, “Master Lian, where are you going?”
“Take you to dinner.” He didn’t look back, his hand was already holding the door handle.
Gu Xiaochen hurriedly said, “No more trouble, it’s so late. I brought something and I can cook it myself.”
Wu Helian turned her head and looked at her, “Cook yourself?”
“Well.” Gu Xiaochen moved his wrist, and he let go. She went to those pockets, squatted down, rummaging through the pockets, she lifted one of them, and turned happily and said, “I brought some eggs, tomatoes, noodles, and several boxes of yogurt.”
Wu Helian stared at her, His voice was lukewarm, “I said I didn’t need to bring anything.”
“I …” Gu Xiaochen stared at the food in his pocket and said softly, “No one eats it in the refrigerator at home. The waste is not good.”
Wu Helian silently asked for a moment, “You live alone? “
Yes.” She nodded, holding her pockets with some force, took a deep breath, and said calmly, “I have only one person.”
Wu Helian’s cold face seemed to soften somewhat, and the light appeared soft. He walked
freely and walked in front of her, Shen Sheng said, “Give me your phone.” Gu Xiaochen took out his phone from his pocket and handed it to him.
Wu Helian took the phone and slender fingers quickly pressed a few keys. He returned the phone to her again, and Gu Xiaochen took it in surprise. He walked past her, she looked down and saw a series of strange numbers on the screen, his low male voice came.
“This is my number.” The
glass door closed and he had entered the bathroom.
Holding a cell phone, Gu Xiaochen thought for a while and carefully entered the word “Wu Helian” in the signature.
There was a sound in the kitchen, and there was a whimper in the bathroom. The originally quiet apartment is no longer empty. Wu Helian took a shower, wrapped her lower body with a bath towel, and walked out on the floor barefoot. He fumbled for cigarettes from his suit and used to give birth to one.
A scent wafted from the kitchen, he turned his head and glanced, involuntarily came to the kitchen door.
In the kitchen, Gu Xiaochen turned his back to him, holding chopsticks in one hand and the lid in the other, and was cooking noodles.
Her busy figure was familiar and strange in his eyes.
After the noodles were cooked, Gu Xiaochen turned off the fire.
Turning his head inadvertently, he saw him standing against the door. He has a model body with an inverted triangle, not too strong, nor too thin, just right strong. The black hair was close to the cheeks, there were drops of water on the hair tips, and a pair of black fungus was bright and cold. The whole person exudes a unique charm, enough to make people feel excited.
Gu Xiaochen’s eyes glanced down and quickly shifted his gaze, “I boiled the noodles, would you like to eat a little more?”
“Well.” He responded with a deep voice , and turned to the restaurant.
Gu Xiaochen was stunned, staring at him staring. I thought he would refuse it.
Two bowls of noodles were served, one for each bowl.
On the square wooden dining table, the two of them sat face to face.
Gu Xiaochen picked up the chopsticks and ate a noodle, then looked up carefully at him. A man like him has incredible temperament even when eating. Chopsticks like to take it very high. Slowly picking up the noodles and putting them silently in the mouth without making a sound.
But he only took a bite and immediately put down his chopsticks, and stopped eating.
Probably not to his taste. Gu Xiaochen couldn’t help but feel a little lost, and continued to eat noodles.
… in the
dark room, Wu Helian was half lying on the bed with a cigarette in her hand. He seems to love smoking very much, as long as he is empty, he will surely keep smoking in his fingers. The footsteps lifted, and he looked up at her. And she was wearing a conservative cotton floral pajamas, white and tender bare feet stepped on the floor, and the lenses under the black frame glasses were covered with a layer of water vapor.
But the innocent purity made him want to destroy it.
Gu Xiaochen stood sternly at the door and asked embarrassingly, “Where do I … sleep?”
Wu Helian smoked a cigarette and gently patted her side.
Gu Xiaochen was stunned, his eyes widening. The white face turned red again, like a ripe tomato, so tempting to taste. She was hesitant to stay where she was, she just couldn’t walk.
“Come here.” His low voice sounded again, revealing a trace of impatience.
She finally reluctantly stepped on the ant step and rubbed to the bed. With his head down he climbed into the bed and lay quietly. The bed was obviously ridiculously large. She carefully pulled the quilt aside and covered herself tightly. Then closed his eyes, but his eyelashes fluttered gently.
At the moment, she was so nervous and frightened.
The smell of tobacco from the side talk came, Gu Xiaochen heard the sound of rustling, the quilt on his body was lifted, and someone got in. She opened her eyes halfway, but there was darkness in front of her. Only then he had turned off the lights, but the fireworks in his fingers flashed out the fire.
Twinkle, twinkling, like a dangerous warning light.
“Do you wear glasses when you sleep?” He asked, his voice hoarse, but it sounded good.
Before Gu Xiaochen responded, he reached out and took off her glasses directly.
Her vision was a little blurry, and she turned to look at him, but he dragged her all the way into her arms and hugged her arms.
“Master Lotus …” she cried softly, somewhat afraid of what happened next.
In the darkness, her eyes were particularly clear and bright, and she ran into his sight.
Wu Helian lowered her head and kissed her lips tightly. She was shocked, his tongue had slipped into her mouth, Gu Xiaochen’s hands grasped the sheets weakly.
