The atmosphere became tense.
“Cheng Jie does not have complete trust in you for now. Also, the majority of shareholders in Bo Shen Enterprise are foreigners. The enterprise holds very little local shares, and it will be peanuts that they lose if we can’t get the Securities Regulatory Commission on our side. The problem is that the SRC requires a disposable fund of more than 30%,” Yu Jiangqing pointed out to Gu Juexi.
“I know what I am doing. What did Ye Shu say when you saw him?” Gu Juexi asked, swiftly changing the subject.
Yu Jiangqing realized that Gu Juexi was changing the subject but played along. “Nothing much. I saw him but he didn’t seem to see me; it looked like he was being held captive.”
Gu Juexi leaned back in his chair, rapping the table with the back of his hand rhythmically.
‘What does that mean?’ Yu Jiangqing asked PA Wen silently.
‘How would I know?’ PA Wen shrugged.
‘Aren’t you the one who knows him best?’ Yu Jiangqing challenged, not giving up.
Gu Juexi stared coldly at the two of them and mocked, “Thinking of coming out of the closet anytime soon?”
PA quickly looked away and Yu Jiangqing choked out a cough, sitting up and saying, “I will stick to what I said, Boss. Even if you deny how you feel about Ye Yuwei now…”
“Hold on, let me finish,” Yu Jiangqing interrupted Gu Juexi for the first time ever, “what are you going to do if Ye Shu really was using us to get rid of Cheng Jie?”
It was a terrifying question and it made PA Wen shiver.
“I mean if Ye Shu is confirmed to be the biological father of Ye Yuwei,” Yu Jiangqing continued with a straight face.
PA Wen gulped at the second question, which apparently was even worse than the first.
“This has nothing to do with Ye Yuwei,” Gu Juexi replied bluntly.
“But he is the father of Ye Yuwei,” Ye Jiangqing said through clenched teeth.
Yu Jiangqing had enough of Gu Juexi’s indifference and kicked the coffee table, spilling water from the glass onto it. Gu Juexi didn’t even flinch.
Yu Jiangqing took a deep breath and put his hands on the table. “It has been eleven years, boss. Not eleven days! For eleven years I was embarrassed to even live and you were blamed for things you didn’t do. We have waited for eleven years and we can’t afford to lose.”
“So we won’t,” replied Gu Juexi calmly as he stared up at the angry man.
Yu Jiangqing inhaled deeply and straightened. “Fine. Helian is still in the hands of Cheng Jie. If you ever make a wrong decision because of Ye Yuwei, then Helian was right – Ye Yuwei was the biggest failure of your whole life,” Yu Jiangqing said in a low voice, then turned and left without looking back.
PA Wen looked at Yu Jiangqing’s retreating figure and inwardly grumbled about Yu Jiangqing pissing Gu Juexi off and leaving him to deal with the angry Gu Juexi alone.
PA Wen jumped when he heard his name. “Yes, Mr. Gu…”
Gu Juexi got up slowly and gazed at PA Wen. “Am I really that scary?” asked Gu Juexi.
‘Yes, you are even scarier than ghosts and monsters,’ PA Wen thought to himself but did not say it out loud.
“You are just bad at expressing yourself, you are not scary,” PA Wen answered carefully, fighting his inner thoughts.
Gu Juexi scoffed at PA Wen’s words and left the apartment. PA Wen heaved a sigh of relief.
