Chapter 317: Asking to a date (1)
Xu Weilai knitted her brows, "Chunchun, why do you look so pale? Are you feeling unwell?"
Xiao Chun broke out of it quickly. Immediately plastering a smile on her face, she evaded the question by saying, "It's nothing. Let's just go shopping!"
Usually, Xiao Chun had a domineering fighting spirit when it came to shopping. Her eyes would sparkle the second she caught sight of bags, clothes, or accessories that caught her eye. However, she seemed a little out of sorts today. To put it more accurately, it was as if her mind was somewhere else.
Xu Weilai pondered what was going on for a little while.
Just now, Xiao Chun seemed fine when they were having lunch. Up until they saw that woman, Yun Rou's exclusive interview… Xu Weilai seldom saw Xiao Chun like this. While she was a little surprised, she was more worried than anything else.
Xu Weilai asked her directly, "Chunchun, do you know Yun Rou?"
Xiao Chun knew too that with how sharp Xu Weilai was, it was impossible for her to not know that something was amiss. She remained silent for a while, trying her best to adjust herself to sound as casual as possible as she said, "Mhm, I know her."
Xu Weilai wasn't too surprised that Xiao Chun and Yun Rou were acquainted. Xiao Chun had a wide social circle, so it wasn't weird for her to know Yun Rou. However, her tone seemed like she didn't want to say anything more about it.
Even the best of friends had to respect each other's privacy. Not wanting to probe any further, Xu Weilai only added, "If you need someone to vent to, I'm here."
The look that Xiao Chun gave Xu Weilai was a little unreadable and a little somber, but she ultimately just gave her a smile.
After they finished shopping, Xiao Chun drove Xu Weilai back to her apartment. Watching as her back gradually disappeared, Xiao Chun leaned back into her seat with a somber look in her eyes.
At Gu Corporation, the CEO's office…
Assistant Lin knocked on the office's door before pushing the door open and making his way in. He walked to the desk that Gu Yu was sitting behind and said, "Mr. Gu, we've finally received news on the person you're looking for."
The hand that was holding the fountain pen to sign documents remained still. Gu Yu cracked his eyes open to reveal a gloomy look in his eyes. His thin lips parted as he threw out the question, "Where?"
At Assistant Lin's reply, his long finger tapped on the desk before he ordered decisively, "Push back everything on my schedule. Go book a flight for tonight."
Assistant Lin was surprised, "CEO Gu, you're intending to go meet her personally?"
"Mhm." While Gu Yu's tone was cold, his voice seemed to be filled with all sorts of tenderness, "Her issues are the most important."
Assistant Lin understood. Nodding his head, he said, "I'll go book the tickets now."
Since Gu Yu frequently went on business trips, he had some clothes ready in the lounge of his office. Assistant Lin tidied up his luggage for him speedily and took them downstairs, placing them in the car. Then, he drove the car up to the entrance to wait for him.
Once Gu Yu got into the car, Assistant Lin started the car engine. Just as he was ready to set off in the direction towards the airport, he suddenly heard the man say, "Return to the apartment first."
Assistant Lin didn't seem to understand. "Did you leave something behind?"
Instead of answering his question, Gu Yu simply said, "Start the car."
Not long after Xu Weilai returned to the apartment, she received a call from Gu Yu.
Xu Weilai replied reflexively, "I went out in the afternoon, I'm not working!"
‘How do you even know that…?' she thought.
Then, Xu Weilai heard Gu Yu instruct her, "Xu Weilai, come out to the balcony."
Xu Weilai got up from the sofa and made her way out.
Gu Yu stood downstairs, gazing at the sixth floor as he watched that familiar figure make her way out slowly. The corners of his lips curved upwards faintly as he said, "Xu Weilai, I'm going out on a business trip for a week."
