Shi Yu sighed in relief after seeing who was sitting on the couch. He walked over to his mini-bar and took a glass of wine for himself. He then walked towards the window and looked at the view.
"What happened at the shop?" the guy sitting on the sofa asked. His face was covered as not much light was falling on him. But Shi Yu understood who it was just by seeing his sitting posture.
"Someone needed my help." Shi Yu gave him a simple reply.
"That girl? Was not that Su Xi's daughter?" The guy asked as he turned around and walked towards Shi Yu.
It was none other than, GU YAN!!
"Someone like you helps someone? Hah. I don't agree." Gu Yan said with a sarcastic tone. Of course, how can he agree when he rarely saw Shi Yu helping someone in danger. It was not his nature until the person is close to him or is his family member. But none of these matched with Ye Nian.
"I don't care if you agree or not. It is upon you. She was Su Family heir's daughter, Su Xi. She is your competitor. So, I want you to not disclose this. Don't even talk about this with anyone." Shi Yu said in a flat but threatening tone. Gu Yan was a little surprised after hearing this from Shi Yu.
Gu Yan didn't reply but just took a sip of the wine. What was going on in his mind can't be guessed easily. He had seen Ye Nian at the banquet. They both, Shi Yu and him, were in the shop., drinking and discussing some business tactics. But it was Shi Yu who saw what was happening first.
When Gu Yan noticed that Shi Yu was not focussing on their talks, he also followed his gaze and saw a girl was getting abuse by her friends. After a few seconds, he clearly saw the face of the girl and he was shocked to see Su Xi's daughter!
He felt a rush of anger coming but before he could have even made a move, Shi Yu had gotten up and walked towards them and helped Ye Nian. When Ye Nian and Shi Yu walked away, he thought of calling Su Xi but he was hesitant because Su Xi before had made an accusation at him. What if she had said that it was he who made this all happen to her daughter? But he knew Ye Nian was only a child, so involving her in his matters was not good. He made a call to his secretary to threaten the Wei family on his behalf.
"You know she was going to get molest if I had not gone there." Shi Yu said and brought Gu Yan back to his senses.
"But you were there for her. It was your responsibility as an adult to help a child. Nothing new. If you had not stepped forward, I was going to go." Gu Yan said with confidence.
"Stop bluffing... It was just....." Shi Yu lowered his head and was going to speak something but stuck in his mouth. It was if his inner voice was telling him to shut up. He can't describe his own feelings at that moment.
"My engagement is on this weekend." Gu Yan suddenly made him remember.
"So? Shall I come?" Shi Yu asked with an eyebrow raised and facing him.
"Yes. I want you to come. But the main question is, will you?"
"Hah. I know you don't want to get married to such a bimbo. Why are you forcing yourself? Because of your family in which everyone is fighting? I don't get what you are even doing!" Shi Yu stated his thoughts. He never understood why Gu Yan agreed for this marriage in the first place. Clearly, the Lin family was interested in leaching of Gu family's wealth as well as the name for themselves. Using the Gu family, Lin's family will raise their stocks!
"I have my reasons."Gu Yan repeated with his pet dialogue. He always says this only but the real reason is unknown to none. Shi Yu can only sigh when he heard the same answer from him!
Shi Yu just sighed. He can't change Gu Yan's thinking.
"What do you want from me?"
"Take over Shi Business as soon as possible. I need your help." Gu Yan said.
"I will not. I have some work before. Someone is approaching me for teaching. So...."
"Who? Ye Nian's teacher?"Gu Yan had heard this somewhere that Su Xi is trying to approach Shi Yu for her daughter. Bur Shi Yu didn't answer.
Both of them stayed silent. This was not awkward as they both were accustom to silence more.
"Do you like Ye Nian?" Gu Yan suddenly asked and broke the silence.
Shi Yu first gave a glare to Gu Yan but Gu Yan showed as if he didn't understand. Gu Yan asked what he thought. But it was a little shocking to see that Shi Yu reacted so lately. If it was a regular thing, he would have said 'No' automatically, but he took some time?
"No! I don't."
"You better not. She is a child and doesn't forget who you are. You and she can never be together! Remember this!
Soon, it was already Wednesday and the day when there was a conference held for the clarification of all those allegations put on her and her business.
Su Xi wanted to end this matter as soon as possible so that she can carry out her work which Rex had given her. She has to get control of everything before Gu Yan's engagement otherwise she will be too late in this matter and she will lose Gu Yan forever!
Su Xi was standing in front of her dressing table and looked at her reflection. She was a little bit of stress. After all, it was going to be a big day for her. A very big day!!
