Gu Juexi walked into the room, shut the door and looked at Ye Yuwei who was still standing at the balcony with her back to him.
Ye Yuwei’s heart pounded, her palms becoming sweaty. Each step Gu Juexi took toward her made her heart beat faster.
When Gu Juexi reached the balcony, his gaze traveled from the laptop that had changed its position to a decidedly nervous Ye Yuwei. The corner of his mouth curved upward.
He walked up to Ye Yuwei and wrapped his arms around her from behind. His hands gently caressed her pregnant belly. Ye Yuwei’s body trembled, her heart thundering uncontrollably in her chest.
“What did you do just now?” Gu Juexi breathed silkily into her ear.
Ye Yuwei breathed in deeply to hide her fear but her clenched fists gave her away.
“Don’t worry, Mr. Gu, I won’t jump off the building,” Ye Yuwei snarked, somehow managing to sound composed.
Gu Juexi chuckled, his warm breath tickling her neck. Ye Yuwei bit her lip and remained silent. Her guilt might have her saying the wrong things. Ye Yuwei’s body was tense; this was the first time she had been caught doing something sneaky. It was hard for her to act as if nothing had happened.
“Let’s go down for dinner,” Gu Juexi suddenly said.
Gu Juexi released her and turned to leave the balcony. He glanced at the laptop before he left, his lips curved into a knowing smile.
As soon as he left the room, Ye Yuwei nearly collapsed to the ground in relief.
Ye Yuwei held onto the handrail and did not even look at the laptop. However, she knew that the laptop was the only way she could get proof. She stared at it contemplatively for a while then finally left for dinner.
By this time Ye Yuwei had regained her composure. It came as a pleasant surprise when Bai Yuyan and Madame Gu were extremely quiet during dinner. It might have been one of her favorite dinners by far.
After dinner, Gu Juexi’s phone rang as he was walking up the stairs. It was PA Wen who was calling to check Gu Juexi’s schedule for a meeting with Cheng Jie. Ye Yuwei was by his side when he answered the call. Hearing “Cheng Jie”, Ye Yuwei paused in her steps.
This was the man who constantly troubled them and had put them in their current unpleasant situation. Gu Juexi actually wanted to meet him?
“Cheng Jie wants to meet CEO tomorrow.”
“Tomorrow? Did he mention what it’s about?” Gu Juexi looked up at Ye Yuwei who was walking in front of him.
“Mr. Cheng did not tell me. He just said that he hopes you’ll do him the honor of accepting his invitation for lunch. You can attend it with Mistress.” Currently, PA Wen was driving in the office’s parking area.
