[Cheng Jie wanted to take over all of Old Master Bai’s assets and therefore he needed to get his hands on the will. If his name was stated in the will, he would inherit everything openly. If his name was not stated in the will, he would change it secretly. Thus, he wouldn’t let Bai Ying announce the will publicly.
Old Master Bai was someone loyal and his righteousness was known to all. His subordinates were also devoted to him and so Cheng Jie didn’t want to mess with them.
Bai Ying never mentioned the will so there was a possibility that it could be Cheng Jie’s name or that Bai Ying wanted to use the will for some other purpose.]
He had the same thoughts.
Gu Juexi studied the information about Bai Ying but there was no photograph attached. It was said that no one knew what Bai Ying looked like to this day.
As Gu Juexi was reading the information, a second email came in.
[There is another puzzling matter. Bai Ying’s husband was a taboo in the Bai family. There were rumors that Ye Shu had once betrayed Bai Ying, thus driving Bai Ying to silence him personally. No one actually knows what happened.]
Gu Juexi turned to look at Ye Yuwei who was sleeping soundly in the bedroom. Could he believe that Ye Shu did not put them in danger?
But Bai Ying was her mother.
The phone in his coat vibrated. Gu Juexi took it and glanced at the caller’s name. He hesitated for a moment then answered the call.
“Gu, is Lao Bao in trouble?” Lu Qichuan’s anxious voice and muffled footsteps could be heard on the other end of the line.
Gu Juexi shut his laptop. “How did you know?”
“Damn, that means it’s true,” Lu Qichuan growled, and a car door closed in the background. “Gu, are we still friends?”
Gu Juexi leaned back against the chair and glanced at Ye Yuwei again before replying, “There’s something I need to talk to you about. We will settle the matter of Cheng Jie, I have an important task for you.”
“What is it?” Lu Qichuan paused, realizing that Gu Juexi and Yu Jiangqing were executing a plan.
“I’ll let you know when it’s time. Just focus on your own issues. Don’t become the second Lao Bao.” Gu Juexi frowned, looking troubled.
Lu Qichuan listened to Gu Juexi.
Gu Juexi had known Lao Bao’s personality would get him into trouble one day, so he had not involved Lao Bao in their affairs.
Lu Qichuan was different. He was less reckless and was thus Gu Juexi’s trump card.
Lu Qichuan had an additional responsibility now. His priority would be to protect Ye Yuwei.
“Gu, what are you planning?” Lu Qichuan stressed.
“Nothing, just remember what I told you.” Gu Juexi ended the conversation abruptly.
Lu Qichuan tossed his phone onto the seat beside him and slammed the steering wheel in frustration.
The repeated sounds of a car horn honking echoed in the empty car park.
Lu Qichuan felt helpless because he did not know what Gu Juexi was planning.
Gu Juexi put his phone away and entered the bedroom.
Ye Yuwei was still deep in sleep, brows furrowed.
Gu Juexi lay down next to her, tracing her face with feather-light touches.
From the day they got married until the day she mentioned a divorce, his memories of her during the few years they were together were blank.
