"I am out now. What's wrong?" asked Gu Juexi emotionlessly.
Butler Kim hesitated to answer, and then Gu Juexi heard his grandmother's voice. "Make him bring that woman back here. I want him to see what she did."
The old mistress' voice was very loud. It was so loud that even Ye Yuwei could hear although Gu Juexi put the phone on the table without the speaker on.
Ye Yuwei's hand stopped for a second, then continued eating as if she did not hear the old mistress at all.
Gu Juexi drew back his hand that was reaching out to get himself some rice, and picked up his phone from the table. "What happened this time, grandma?"
Gu Juexi sounded unhappy, probably because of the words and tone the old mistress used.
"What happened? That woman sent someone to wreck Yuyan's studio! What an evil and petty woman!" said the old mistress fiercely.
Ye Yuwei looked at Gu Juexi. When did she wreck Bai Yuyan's studio? She would not be sitting here if she had the guts and ability to do that.
"Who told you that it was Ye Yuwei, Grandma?" asked Gu Juexi, who sounded even more upset.
"Who else could it be if it weren't her? Yes, I slapped her. But she should come to me if she is upset. Why would she pick on Yuyan?"
Ye Yuwei held tightly on her chopsticks, and her body turned stiff at what the old mistress said.
Gu Juexi leaned casually on the back of the chair, and it made Ye Yuwei curious. He looked like he knew about her getting slapped and Bai Yuyan's studio getting wrecked.
"Why? Miss Bai told you that it was Yuwei? What evidence does she have?" asked Gu Juexi calmly. No one could tell if he was defending Ye Yuwei.
The old mistress sneered at what Gu Juexi said. "Yuyan is not the type who tells on people. I know what kind of person Ye Yuwei is very well on the other hand."
Ye Yuwei put down her chopsticks and wanted to leave the table.
Gu Juexi stopped her from leaving and continued talking to the person on the line, "You can't just accuse someone without evidence, Grandma. It is slander."
"You mean I'm slandering her?" asked the old mistress furiously. "What did she do to you to make you say that?"
Not understanding why Gu Juexi defended her, Ye Yuwei looked at him in confusion.
"I don't care, you bring her back now," the old mistress demanded, "Come back now if you don't want me to die of a heart attack." The old mistress then hung up the phone before Gu Juexi could say anything.
Gu Juexi tossed his phone aside, and said, "Sit down and eat. Look at what kind of childhood friend you have."
Ye Yuwei could sense that Gu Juexi was unhappy. But did she get to choose what kind of childhood friend to have?
"What are you waiting for? Don't expect them to serve you dinner in Gu Mansion," said Gu Juexi coldly.
Ye Yuwei sat down after hearing what he said, and picked up the chopsticks. "Thank you for trusting me," said Ye Yuwei sincerely, because it was the first time and Gu Juexi chose to believe her.
When Gu Juexi looked at Ye Yuwei, the latter has already looked down continuing with her dinner.
What Gu Juexi did not say was that he did not defend her out of trust. He defended her because he was the one who wrecked the studio.
