Chapter 134: Profiting From a Disaster (2)
Xu Weilai had developed a crush on Gu Yu. Like every other girl in the world, she had enjoyed sharing bits of that sweet secret with her best friend.
Later on, after she had gotten together with Gu Yu, the happiness that she was experiencing from that love radiated from her constantly, and Xiao Chun could tell how happy she was. Xu Weilai never even deliberately paraded her relationship in front of her friend.
Right now, it wasn’t that she didn’t want to reveal the state of affairs between herself and Gu Yu to Xiao Chun. Rather, she was too embarrassed to do so!
It was a marriage without love, one that became an emotionless business transaction. She didn’t want her unhappy marriage to worry Xiao Chun, nor did she want Xiao Chun to find out how low she’d sunken.
Xu Weilai shook her head. “Not at all. Everything’s fine,” she replied.
Xiao Chun slowly pulled out a smile. “That’s good to hear,” she remarked.
She tightly gripped Xu Weilai’s hand and said, “Weilai, I wish you happiness. Truly.”
Xu Weilai was still able to tell apart those who acted with sincerity from those who didn’t. Xiao Chun had been friends with her for so long, and Xu Weilai would always remember in her heart all the good things that she had done for her.
Xiao Chun drove Xu Weilai back to the apartment. Xu Weilai had initially wanted to invite her up for a cup of coffee, but Xiao Chun had refused. “I played truant today and have to return to the office now. You know very well what Brother Yu’s temper is like. He’s not going to give me a free pass simply because I’m his god-sister. He’ll give me that cold face of his and say, ‘If you’re not intending to work hard, hand in your resignation!'”
She mimicked Gu Yu’s usual icy demeanor as she said that, and managed to elicit a smile from Xu Weilai.
Naturally, Xu Weilai did not insist. “Go back to work, then. We’ll meet again when you’re free.”
Xiao Chun sat in the driver’s seat and blew a kiss at Xu Weilai, who had already left the car and was standing by the curb. Then, she stepped on the gas pedal and the car sped off.
Xiao Chun did not return to work as she claimed to Xu Weilai. Instead, she headed directly to A-PUB!
Usually, the place wasn’t opened for business in the day. However, Xiao Chun was a VIP customer of the establishment as well as a good friend of the owner, Xu Shuai. Therefore, her arrival was naturally met with a warm welcome.
Xu Shuai had stayed up partying late into the night before and had slept in the room upstairs. Wu Er had dialed his cell more than a dozen times before he had finally woken up. After being chastised, Wu Er said helplessly and pitiably, “Miss Xiao is here and ordered a lot of alcohol. Considering it is still morning and she’s already drowning herself with liquor, I’m afraid something may have happened. Would you like to check on her?”
With a click, the call was abruptly disconnected. Xu Shuai fell back onto the bed and continued to sleep.
Ten seconds later, he jumped out of bed and scratched his hair. His mind had finally processed what Wu Er had said.
Xiao Chun was downing liquor in the morning?
He cursed under his breath and quickly got out of bed to head into the shower. After washing up, he wrapped himself in a bathrobe and slipped a pair of guest slippers on before heading downstairs and going directly to the bar counter.
Xiao Chun was indeed Gu Yu’s godsister. She was seated in Gu Yu’s usual seat and drinking his usual drink in the exact same posture. Had the two siblings coordinated it with each other beforehand? Why were they tormenting him, one after the other?
He strode forward to her. Since he didn’t have time to style his hair, it hung down his forehead, barely skirting his eyes. Xu Shuai flipped his hair up lazily and leaned on the bar counter. With his dark eyes staring at Xiao Chun, he looked at the dejected expression on her face and asked, “My dear Miss Xiao, did you just fall out of love?”
Xiao Chun was a night owl, much like him. If she had been drinking in the night, he wouldn’t have batted an eye. Considering this was in broad daylight, however, something must have happened!
