The atmosphere changed after Ye Yuwei finished her sentence.
Gu Juexi's expression turned dark.
"I, Gu Juexi am not so senseless," Gu Juexi retorted then continued eating.
Ye Yuwei was taken aback. She felt stifled.
Gu Juexi could feel his blood boiling.
He was being gracious about the matters of the past and brought her out to shop and have a meal together. Were those not what women liked?
In the end, he was accused of having a motive.
'This ungrateful woman!'
He was exceptionally angry.
This meal was unpleasant.
Ye Yuwei lowered her head and ate quietly.
In the past, she would long for a chance to have a meal with Gu Juexi alone. But now, this was a punishment for her and she hoped it would end soon.
After dinner, Gu Juexi paid the bills at the counter. Ye Yuwei looked at his back and wondered if the Gu Juexi in front of her and the Gu Juexi that she knew was not the same person.
Gu Juexi continued to hold Ye Yuwei's hand after settling the bills and was about to leave when they coincidentally bumped into Bai Yuyan who just had dinner with her friends.
"Brother Gu, Yuwei." Bai Yuyan beamed as she parted with her friends. "Such a coincidence, you're having dinner here too?"
Gu Juexi remained expressionless while Ye Yuwei remained indifferent.
"I've just seen the news. Yuwei, you must not misunderstand. There is nothing going on between Brother Gu and me. I haven't found a place to stay, hence was putting up at the hotel for a night. This morning was an accident," Bai Yuyan explained.
Ye Yuwei looked at Bai Yuyan and gave a faint smile.
'Just saw the news? This morning you went to Gu Juexi's office and paraded around. Now you tell me this, don't you find it ridiculous?'
"The paparazzi love to cook up a story. You don't need to take it to heart," Ye Yuwei said.
"Glad to hear that. I was worried you would misunderstand." Bai Yuyan heaved a sigh of relief and walked toward Ye Yuwei and held her wrist, "We need to catch up, are you free today?"
"She is not," Gu Juexi retorted. Gu Juexi gestured to Bai Yuyan and tugged at Ye Yuwei. "Are you done? If you're done, we still have—"
"I'm free." Ye Yuwei piped up suddenly and received a look of disappointment from Gu Juexi.
Ye Yuwei turned a blind eye to Gu Juexi, and immediately shook off Gu Juexi's hand. "It's rare for us to meet up, why not we have a walk around?"
"Sure, Brother Gu doesn't mind right?" Bai Yuyan asked innocently.
'Does it look like I don't mind?'
Gu Juexi lowered his gaze to Ye Yuwei and she looked at him with her lips curved into a smile.
How times had changed. In the past, he used to abandon her without considering her feelings.
In addition, he left with some other lady.
Now, she was only going out to catch up with her childhood friend.
The evening in summer was indeed hot and humid.
The pedestrians on the streets were rushing. Perhaps going for the evening shift at work or perhaps going home for dinner.
Ye Yuwei rarely got the chance to stroll along the walkway.
Gu Juexi's car followed closely behind.
Bai Yuyan had her arm hooked around Ye Yuwei's arm and had been telling her about her life overseas for the past few years.
At last, Bai Yuyan probed, "Yuwei, have you ever thought of searching for your parents?"
