Chapter 269: A New Year’s Present (1)
Blissfully unaware of the shift in Gu Yu's expression, Xu Weilai licked her lips with the tip of her tongue.
Food that had been snatch from another, particularly from Gu Yu, was a hundred times tastier than usual. Her smile reached her eyes, and they sparkled with delight.
With her appetite sated, Xu Weilai placed her chopsticks down and got up. Just as she was about to leave, she was pulled back by her wrist and she fell back to a sitting position on the chair.
Before she could react, the man held the back of her neck in place with his big hand. As his face approached hers, her vision dimmed. His lips covered hers in a searing kiss.
Xu Weilai's smiling face froze, and her eyes widened.
Gu Yu's kiss was sudden and full of desire. He sucked on her lips urgently, and the tip of his tongue pried her teeth open. His tongue invaded her mouth and encroached every nook and cranny within.
Xu Weilai lifted her hand to push Gu Yu off, but he merely tightened his arms around her, holding her firmly in place in front of him. Regardless of how much she struggled, she couldn't break free.
When Xu Weilai was about to pass out from lack of air, Gu Yu's lips finally left hers. However, he didn't release her. Instead, he leaned his forehead against hers as he gazed at her with his fathomless eyes. His rubbed his thumb gently across her slightly swollen lips, and his face broke out in a smile. With a low voice that revealed his joy and satisfaction, he said, "Yeah, it's delicious."
Xu Weilai didn't know what to say.
Because she had snatched the food from his chopsticks, was he snatching the taste from her lips?
What a prick! He lived up to his reputation as a cold-blooded businessman who swallowed his enemies whole and spat their bones out! He had taken full advantage of her!
Xu Weilai grit her teeth in anger and embarrassment. Unfortunately, she didn't possess the ability to beat this lecher up. She eventually shoved Gu Yu aside in annoyance, got up, and rushed out of the dining room.
Mrs. Lin, who had witnessed the whole scene, was feeling strangely proud of herself!
The pork ribs she had prepared must have tasted so good that the two of them had fought over the last piece!
Raising her head and puffing out her chest, she asked Gu Yu eagerly, "Young Master, if you're still hungry, I'll prepare another portion of pork ribs for you! It'll be very quick!"
"That won't be necessary. I'll be fine after finishing this."
With that, Gu Yu picked up the half a bowl of rice that Xu Weilai had left and finished it in a few mouthfuls.
Having eaten his fill, Gu Yu stood up in contentment and threw Mrs. Lin a compliment. "Mrs. Lin, after so many years, your cooking as still as tasty as ever!"
Mrs. Lin immediately turned bashful. Her handsome Young Master had complimented her cooking. She was in love!
Inside the bedroom…
Xu Weilai held her laptop and typed on it furiously. Without bothering with any punctuation or repetition, she cursed Gu Yu out with over 3000 words. Within that time, only half of the anger in her chest dissipated.
All of a sudden, her cell phone received a text message.
As Xu Weilai picked up the cell phone and opened the message, the rest of her anger disappeared!
A deposit had been made into her bank account. It was the payment for her article on Rong Wang. She had handed in the report in the afternoon, and the money had come in at night. This was precisely why she liked working for her Big Boss! His efficiency in handling her payments greatly motivated her to work!
The phone chimed again. Another unread message arrived.
Xu Weilai had yet to close the notification page when she saw the absurdly high amount that had been credited into her account. After subconsciously counting the number of zeros, she was stunned!
What? Even though she had put her life on the line for the breaking news regarding Rong Wang, the article was worth at most a hundred thousand! How on earth did she receive a million?
