    Xu Weilai clenched her fists subconsciously.

    It would be a lie if she said she had never harbored any hope of meeting him again. However, when she saw that he had looked right past her and treated her as invisible, she knew that going forward to greet him would only result in her own humiliation.

    2“Nah.” Xu Weilai shook her head decisively.

    Xu Weilai’s father couldn’t comprehend her decision.

    2She pursed her lips lightly, and explained, “Dad, you can see that Gu Yu does not want to interact with anyone at the moment. Besides, he came with a female companion today. Given our past relationship, I don’t think… he’ll want to see me.”

    Mr. Xu pondered her words for a moment. Indeed, it wasn’t a good time today. Besides, there were so many other eyes present at the party. If Xu Weilai went forward and got rejected by the assistant, it would be embarrassing when word of it got out.

    1“There’ll always be another chance.”

    Xu Weilai gave a sigh of relief inwardly when she saw that her father changed his mind. She held on to his arm, and they continued on their way.

    At the same time that she turned around, Gu Yu, who was resting at the booth with his eyes closed, suddenly opened his eyes. He glanced over imperceptibly, and his eyes darkened and became unreadable. The entire atmosphere surrounding him suddenly became cold.

    3–

    The black sedan stopped at the lobby of the luxury apartment building.

    Su Ziqian turned her head to look at the handsome man beside her. After a moment’s hesitation, she couldn’t resist asking in a gentle voice, “Yu, would you like to come up for some coffee?”

    Gu Yu lifted his eyes lazily and glanced at her.

    The look in his eyes was emotionless and cold. It gave nothing away and kept the recipient at a distance.

    He didn’t say a word, but she already knew the answer. She smiled immediately and replied cheerily, “I’ll go back now, Yu. Be careful on the road. Good night.”

    After Su Ziqian turned and walked into the apartment block, the assistant asked, “Back to the villa, sir?”

    Gu Yu didn’t reply. He looked out of the window at nothing in particular and sat in a daze.

    1The assistant glanced at his boss through the rearview mirror. Mr. Gu seemed a little out of the ordinary today.

    Just as the assistant was sure that he wasn’t going to get an answer, the man sitting behind replied in a low voice, “Back to the office.”

    –

    When Xu Weilai got home, she removed her makeup and took a shower. She was physically and mentally exhausted by the time she climbed into bed.

    She tossed and turned in bed. Perhaps it was because of the jet lag, or maybe it was some other reason, but regardless of how tired she felt, she couldn’t fall asleep.

    She picked up her cell phone intending to just scroll through it randomly. However, her fingers had a mind of their own and automatically typed in Gu Yu’s name in the search engine.

    By the time she regained her senses, her screen was already filled with all possible information regarding Gu Yu.

    Three years ago, he had taken full control of the Gu Corporation. He was aggressive in his actions and incisive in his methods. Possessing a very sharp business acumen, Gu Yu brought Gu Corporation to the peak of the industry.

    In three years, he had cemented his position as a legend in the business world.

    Apart from this information, the search results were filled with various gossips regarding news between him and Su Ziqian.

    Su Ziqian was originally a newbie that had been unheard of. Gu Yu had opened an entertainment company solely for her and promoted her, alone. It had given her access to bottomless resources and had pushed her to the prominent position she currently held.

    Rumor had it that Gu Yu had already brought Su Ziqian to meet his grandfather. Rumor also had it that Gu Yu had taken Su Ziqian to pick a ring, leading to the speculation that some good news was just around the corner!

    Everything she’d heard at the party was turning out to be true…

    After three years, she had become the ditched fiancée who was the butt of everybody’s jokes, while he had grown successful in both his love life and career!
