PA Wen did not know what to say. He looked at Gu Juexi awkwardly, as if asking if he could tell Xiao Yaojing that Ye Yuwei was being grounded.
But he was quite certain that he would be on the news tomorrow if he told the truth.
“Miss Xiao, actually, Mrs. Gu…”
Before PA Wen could finish, Gu Juexi snatched his phone. “She is in bed resting,” Gu Juexi said in the phone and then hung up.
PA Wen caught his phone when Gu Juexi tossed it to him, hoping that Xiao Yaojing would not be too mad at what Gu Juexi said.
Never had Xiao Yaojing expected to hear Gu Juexi’s voice when she called PA Wen at this time.
And what did he say? Bed resting?
Xiao Yaojing sneered for almost taking his word for it. She looked at the time. It was too late to bother Lu Qichuan now, so she would ask him tomorrow if he could bring her to see Ye Yuwei.
It never occurred to Xiao Yaojing that she was so comfortable with PA Wen that she did not mind bothering him at all just now.
Meanwhile, the real torture was going on at PA Wen’s place.
He did not dare to sleep and was quite afraid to keep the man company. Sometimes he wished he could just quit his job.
“It’s getting late, Mr. Gu. Why don’t you go back and have some rest? We have work to do tomorrow,” said PA Wen carefully.
Gu Juexi looked at PA Wen and wanted to say something but did not say anything in the end.
“Go rest, never mind me,” said Gu Juexi as he continued to drink.
PA Wen figured that Gu Juexi was probably here because he did not want the rumor about him going to a hotel with another girl to happen again.
‘But why didn’t he go to Mr. Lu’s place? How odd!’
PA thought to himself, and went to his bedroom eventually. Gu Juexi obviously wanted to have some time alone, and he did not want to annoy him by keeping him company.
It came to PA Wen on his way to his bedroom that Lu Qichuan and Gu Juexi were love rivals now.
And the fact that Mr. Gu thought of that was actually quite impressive.
Meanwhile, Gu Juexi was sitting in the living room swirling his wine while the liquid reflected his face.
“Ye Shu,” Gu Juexi said a name, and the next name that came to his mind was, “Ye Yuwei.”
Gu Juexi has already left when PA Wen came out from his room the next morning. There were another two empty wine bottles, and the dishes were barely eaten.
PA Wen scratched his head and wondered when Gu Juexi left.
Ye Yuwei smelled alcohol when she woke up and saw the man sitting in the couch with his eyes close and one hand on his forehead.
Gu Juexi’s brows were brought together. Ye Yuwei could not tell if it was because of the hangover or something else. She wanted to put a blanket on him but convinced herself not to.
‘Ye Yuwei, have you not had enough heartbreaks? Why feel compassionate when you have decided to let go? Just because he said he likes you?’
Ye Yuwei thought to herself and then got out of her bed and went to the washroom.
Gu Juexi opened his eyes after Ye Yuwei went into the washroom. His head hurt a lot but something flickered in his eyes.
