Chapter 167: Only Call Her When There Was Something To Ask (1)
Lin Yuhan looked at Gu Yu. When he saw that Gu Yu didn’t object, he nodded at Xu Weilai and said, “Sure.”
Naturally, Xu Weilai didn’t care about Gu Yu’s opinion. Since she had already completed her mission, she didn’t want to stay with him any longer.
The two of them went out of the office and walked towards the elevator. While they were waiting for the lift to arrive, Lin Yuhan glanced at Xu Weilai and said with some pity, “I didn’t expect you to get married at such a young age.”
Xu Weilai gave a hollow laugh. “No one can stop fate.”
Even so… what was happening between her and Gu Yu was beyond unfortunate!
Looking at her beautiful face, a hint of bitterness appeared in the depth of Lin Yuhan’s eyes. It only lasted for a split second and disappeared soon after. “Mr. Gu is indeed a rare man. You have good taste.”
Xu Weilai maintained the fake smile on her face and spoke in a perfunctory tone, “Not bad, not bad…”
She truly had nothing to say about Gu Yu. She didn’t want to mention him either.
Ding! The door of the elevator opened. Just as Xu Weilai was about to raise her leg and enter the elevator, she saw Xiao Chun coming out of it. As their eyes met, Xiao Chun stood shocked for a moment. Then, she smiled and asked, “Weilai, why are you here?”
“Well… I have something on.”
Xiao Chun’s gaze landed on Lin Yuhan. She went forward and hugged him politely.
This time, Xu Weilai was stunned. “Do you know each other?”
After they parted, Xiao Chun nodded. “He’s my senior while I’m studying overseas. I had to invite him repeatedly several times and even had to use our friendship to convince him to come to Gu Corporation.”
Xu Weilai was enlightened. “That explains a lot.”
Lin Yuhan immediately replied humbly, “Mr. Gu is a powerful leader. It’s my honor to be able to work with someone like him. I should be the one thanking my junior sister for bringing us together.”
After complimenting each other, Xiao Chun said, “Oh right. Weilai, I said I’ll treat you to a meal but I haven’t had the time to do so. Since we’ve met each other today, let’s go and eat. I have something to give you, as well.”
Xu Weilai looked at Lin Yuhan instinctively. Lin Yuhan was quite thoughtful. He said, “You don’t have to send me off. Go and have your meal. I will see you again soon.”
Xiao Chun had to go back to her office to take some things, so Xu Weilai first went to the high-class western restaurant situated opposite the office building. The moment she finished ordering her food, Xiao Chun came in carrying several bags.
She sat down and immediately took the glass of water in front of Xu Weilai. She finished all the water in one gulp before placing the bags on the table. Then, she started showing Xu Weilai what was in the bags.
“This is a limited-edition Hermès bag. There’s only two in the world. One for you and one for me.”
“This is the bird’s nest and Ejiao that I wanted to give you before. Since I’m so busy nowadays that I kept forgetting to send them to you, they have been on my office desk for a long time. Remember to eat them!”
Xu Weilai knew that she couldn’t reject Xiao Chun, so she had no choice but to accept them. In the past, she would exchange gifts with Xiao Chun while she still had money. Now, she felt pressured when she couldn’t give her anything in return.
She thought for a moment and took off the necklace around her neck. She held Xiao Chun’s hand and placed it on her palm.
“I have nothing valuable on me, so take this. This is the prize I bought for myself after I got my bonus for my first article at the Z magazine publishing company. It is my lucky necklace.”
“I’ll give it to you. I hope that it can bring you good luck.”
Xiao Chun looked at the necklace. Compared to her drawers of diamond necklaces, this necklace was too ordinary. However, she felt her heart begin to warm up. She scolded Xu Weilai, “Stupid girl! Your sister here doesn’t lack anything! This necklace is important to you. You should keep it!”
Xu Weilai didn’t relent. “If you don’t take it, I won’t take the Hermès bag, the bird’s nest, or the Ejiao.”
Xiao Chun immediately placed her palms together. “It’s a deal!”
Suddenly, Xu Weilai’s phone rang. She looked at the display screen to find that it was a call from the Xu Residence.
Her parents only called her when there was something to ask her. Did this mean… something had happened again?
