Chapter 148: A Blessing in Disguise (2)
There was a well-known phrase —”a blessing in disguise.”
Xu Weilai looked at the name printed on the white business card, and she almost yelped in delight! The name on the card was “Lin Yuhan”!
The surprise came so suddenly, as Xu Weilai turned to look at the man in disbelief. She had to make sure that this was the Lin Yuhan that she had been looking for, and not merely someone with the same name.
He had kept his head lowered before, and his cap had been worn low as well, covering half his face. On top of that, he was now sporting a mustache that wasn’t there previously. Hence, she hadn’t been able to recognize him as the man in the photograph. But now that he was looking straight at her, Xu Weilai was able to scrutinize his features closely. It was indeed him!
Watching her stare at him, he asked uncomfortably, “Is something wrong? Is there something on my face?”
Xu Weilai contained her excitement and steadied her breathing. As calmly as she could manage, she said, “Not at all. I just… think that you’re really handsome, and I can’t bring myself to look away!”
She didn’t want him to get the wrong idea, and felt that it was untimely to tell him that she had been waiting for him. As a result, she had quickly made up an excuse.
But to be honest, Lin Yuhan was indeed quite good-looking, she wasn’t exactly lying!
Lin Yuhan was caught off-guard by her candor and was stunned for a while. With a slight smile that revealed his embarrassment, he covered his mouth with his fist and coughed softly before saying, “Thank you.”
After a pause, he said, “So, may I have your business card, please? I would like to find an opportunity to thank you for what you did today!”
Charity was indeed often rewarded, the philosophers were correct!
Xu Weilai had been wracking her brains thinking of how to phrase her request for an interview. However, here it was, the opportunity offering itself right at her doorstep!
Xu Weilai felt that it would be inappropriate to conduct an interview right there, given the state he was in. Hence, she didn’t voice her request. However, she couldn’t give him her business card just yet.
If he knew she was a reporter, it was possible that her actions would be misconstrued, and he would assume that the whole incident had been a set-up. That would make things complicated.
In an instant, Xu Weilai quickly considered her options before saying with a smile, “I don’t have my business card with me at the moment. Why don’t you pass me your phone, and I’ll enter my contact details?”
Lin Yuhan passed his cell phone to Xu Weilai, and she returned it to him after entering her phone number.
The man looked at the name that she had entered and read it out softly, “Xu Weilai.” With that, he looked up at her and offered his hand for a handshake. “It has been a pleasure to meeting you,” he said.
Xu Weilai reached out her own hand to shake his. “Likewise,” she replied.
As Xu Weilai drove off, she waited until Lin Yuhan was out of sight, before taking out his card and kissing it a few times!
If Zhou Meiqi found out that she had personally pushed Lin Yuhan towards her, she would probably be on the verge of tears!
Ha! At that very moment, she had the urge to tell Zhou Meiqi, “You can’t beat me! I’m just that good!”
Of course, she hadn’t yet secured the interview, but she wasn’t going to count her chickens before they hatched. She had to keep a low profile on this in order to avoid losing such a precious opportunity!
When Xu Weilai returned to her apartment in the evening, she found Gu Yu’s leather shoes at the entrance the moment she stepped in.
She frowned immediately in bewilderment. What was he doing back so early? It was only six! Had the Gu Corporation gone belly-up? Were times that bad?
