Gu Mingzhe smiled gently, then lovingly rubbed Zhong Qianqian’s hair in front of Aiden. He said, “Tianheng Holdings has opened a total of 75 stores worldwide, and only 23 of them are in Camino. Therefore, even the General Manager of Camino Area has a very low possibility of becoming the Vice President.”
After that, Gu Mingzhe extended his hand and said in a ‘friendly’ tone, “Hello, I’d like to reintroduce myself. I’m Gu Mingzhe from Gu Enterprise.”
Gu Mingzhe’s motive was simple. He felt that Zhong Qianqian must have made an incorrect introduction, so he wanted to use his identity to suppress his rival.
Aiden reached out to shake his hands, and said concisely, “Aiden!”
Gu Mingzhe’s lips curled up to form a mocking smile, and he tightened his grip on the handshake. “Mr Aiden, are you currently in charge of Jiang District? Coincidentally, I’ve just met Mr Qin Weiyao at a banquet last week, he’s the General Manager of Camino Area. Since you’re friends with Qianqian, you can contact me in the future, and I’d be willing to act as a host and help you invite Mr Qin out for a meal. You’re still young, so you still have plenty of room for promotion.”
As everyone gazed at the idiot, Zhong Qianqian came back to her senses and awkwardly walked between the two.
“Brother Mingzhe, Aiden is the General Manager at the headquarters of Tianheng International. He is an international Vice President who is second only to Tianheng International’s CEO.”
“What?” Gu Mingzhe was shocked, and his expression instantly turned horrified.
Everyone felt as if he had been slapped across the face, and decided to watch the show with gossipy expressions on .
In reality, he was not yet beaten.
He already felt quite pressured to face a rival with such an impressive backing, but could anyone tell him why Aiden was so physically strong?
He had studied Taekwondo since he was a child, and his grip strength was much greater than the average person. Yet compared to Aiden, he was like a weak chicken, crushed and abused unflinchingly.
Gu Mingzhe felt that his hand was almost about to be pinched off, and his face paled with pain. However, with so many guests present, he could only endure it.
“I’d never have thought that Mr Gu had such a relationship with Tianheng Holdings. However, there’s no need for Mr Gu to be the host and get Qin Weiyao to dine with me. Under normal circumstances, he will report directly to me when something happens. We are not interested in eating.”
Gu Mingzhe struggled to maintain the smile on his face. “I see, it seems that I’ve been too rash. I hope that Mr Aiden can forgive me.”
Aiden smiled. “You’re a friend of Qianqian, so for Qianqian’s sake, I won’t fuss about such trivial matters.”
However, in the blink of an eye, Aiden’s face was filled with sadness. “Those two ladies said earlier that Mr Gu is your boyfriend? But Qianqian, you promised to be my partner!”
When Zhong Qianqian saw Aiden’s pitiful expression, she immediately forgot his bad behavior of not answering his phone and switching it off. Even with her first love present, she barely hesitated,and quickly shook her head. “Brother Mingzhe is just my senior, and used to stay in Left Bank Town as well. We were neighbours, and we grew up together. His family moved to Emperor District five years ago, and this is the first time we’ve met in five years.”
Upon hearing this, a relieved smile appeared on Aiden’s exceptionally handsome face.
“I see. I was startled.”
Finally, against the background of Gu Mingzhe’s extremely ugly expression, Aiden gracefully let go of his opponent’s hand.
At that moment, the blood in Gu Mingzhe’s hands finally began to flow again. However, the huge tingling sensation emanating from his bones made him feel as though his entire arm was stiff.
