Chapter 324: He Had Been Blocked! (2)
Although Gu Yu kept his voice very low, Xu Weilai nevertheless turned around in bed, as if she had be woken up. When Gu Yu saw her turn around, he ended the call without a second thought.
Xu Shuai had been waiting for an answer from Gu Yu when he suddenly heard a click, followed by the heartless disengaged tone over the phone. He was speechless for half a second. When he dialed Gu Yu's number again, the message he heard was, "The number you have called is currently unavailable. Please try again later!"
… Had he been blocked? Why?
Gu Yu walked as silently as possible to the bedside. He picked up the blanket that had been kicked aside by Xu Weilai and covered her with it, tucking the corners in. When he was done, he was still reluctant to move away.
His dark eyes lingered on her face as he looked at her fast asleep. He had no idea what sweet dream she was having, but she had a slight smile on her face.
As he watched her, the corners of his lips couldn't help but curl into a smile.
Leaning over, he lowered his head and pecked her chastely on the forehead. When that wasn't enough for him, he kissed her on her nose. Since that still wasn't enough, he eventually planted a kiss on her lips.
He was feeling the pain of being lovesick.
At the CEO's office at Gu Corporation….
Xiao Chun knocked on the door to the office, then heard Gu Yu say "Come in" from inside. Pursing her lips, her hand tightened around the doorknob. Forcing herself to slowly loosen her grip, she pushed the door open and walked in a few seconds later.
She walked over to the desk and said, "Mr. Gu, I would like to discuss the selection of our new spokesperson with you."
Gu Yu raised his eyes and glanced at her while his hand continued to sign his document. When he was done with his signature, he shut the folder and elegantly capped his pen before putting it aside.
He leaned back against his chair and clasped his hands together in front of him. In a lazy and casual gesture, he lifted his chin and said, "Have a seat."
Xiao Chun pulled the chair out and sat opposite of Gu Yu. Her eyes met his, but his gaze became so intense for her within two seconds that she had to lower her eyes.
After regaining control of her emotions, she said in a serious tone, "The company initially intended to sign Su Ziqian as the spokesperson, but you recently ordered a freeze on Su Ziqian's activities. Subsequently, the director, Mr. Chen, and I shortlisted Rong Wang because of his rocketing popularity. Unfortunately, his scandal broke out. Ever since then, his reputation has plummeted, and he's even facing prison time now."
Xiao Chun shrugged her shoulders to convey her helplessness before she added, "After these two incidents, Mr. Chen and I came to the unanimous conclusion that using stars from the entertainment industry as spokespeople are too unpredictable. Those who are clean lack popularity and most of the trending ones are keeping something bad from the public. It's hard to tell when they'll come tumbling down."
She added, "Hence, I changed our approach for the selection process this time. I've discovered that we truly don't need a superstar. Instead, we should be looking for a high-profile individual who is successful in their own right. They should have both a positive image and a strong influence over the market."
Having said that, Xiao Chun paused for a moment and looked at Gu Yu to gauge the expression on Gu Yu's face. However, his face remained expressionless; thus, she couldn't gather any information.
Xiao Chun's eyes flickered a few times and she bit her bottom lip before saying, "I propose…"
She had barely uttered two words when she heard Gu Yu throw out the word, "No."
Xiao Chun was left speechless.
Xiao Chun knew that even though she hadn't voiced the name aloud, Gu Yu knew who she was referring to. However, she hadn't expected him to reject it so firmly.
However, all of this went just as planned..
Five minutes after Xiao Chun left the office, Gu Yu's internal line rang. Gu Yu answered it, it was Assistant Lin on the line, and he said, "Mr. Gu, Miss Yun is here to visit. Would you like to meet her?"
