After Gu Juexi heard him, he laughed loudly.
The Gu family was really interesting.
In the past, his grandmother had used Bai Yuyan to attack him and Ye Yuwei, and now his father was using Bai Yuyan to deal with him.
As Ye Yuwei had said: the Gu family was really disgusting.
Gu Juexi looked down at the photograph of Ye Yuwei on the table. Gu Juexi still did not know what she had been looking at then, but it was clear that the woman in the photograph was still peaceful during that time.
Everything he had done was to protect the country and its people, but he had risked his own life just to achieve it.
After the mission, the commander had come to him personally and told him that the country still needed him. He told him that if he was willing to return, he would be promoted three levels up from special squadron leader to special brigade commander.
However, he had already given up. The commander had rebuked him continuously and it had been Yu Jiangqing who had persuaded him to leave.
Gu Juexi’s reply had been simple: He risked everything to protect the people of China but he could not even protect his own loved ones. So why should he continue protecting the people?
No one would be that selfless to carry on living just for the good of others.
Gu Juexi was alive, but his life was just an empty shell now. The only reason he stayed alive was his mother. She was the only reason he was still living now.
PA Wen quietly retreated from the room. He knew the CEO would not be in the mood for conversation now.
The CEO had successfully removed one of the biggest threats to the country. However, in doing so, he had lost one of the most important people in his life.
Although PA Wen often disagreed with the way the CEO did things, he knew the feelings that the CEO had for his wife.
It was because of this that the death of the young mistress was the greatest punishment for the CEO.
He was still alive, but his life was just an empty shell.
“PA Wen, Miss Xiao is waiting for you in your office,” the secretary suddenly whispered.
PA Wen suddenly felt a rush of cold wind and trembled a little.
What have I done wrong now?
“Tell her I am not—”
Before PA Wen could finish his sentence, he heard the voice of Xiao Yaojing. PA Wen cursed, wondering where his ancestors were when he needed them.
PA Wen rushed into his office and saw the woman sitting on the sofa with her legs crossed. He quickly closed the door. If the CEO saw Xiao Yaojing now, he would be ruined too.
“Why are you here?” PA Wen asked helplessly.
“I do not understand. Is Lu Qichuan sick? I have liked him for so many years, but he never responded and now he suddenly has a daughter? Is that why he did not like me back?” Xiao Yaojing demanded as she jumped up from the sofa. For the past few years, every time she felt frustrated with Lu Qichuan, she would come and look for PA Wen.
PA Wen calmly listened to Xiao Yaojing as she vented her frustrations and started to handle his own work.
Xiao Yaojing walked up to him and barked, “Are you listening to me?”
“Yes, yes, yes. Speak, I am listening,” PA Wen sighed and looked up at Xiao Yaojing with eyes that said ‘I really am listening to you’.
Even if this was the only reason she would come to him, it was enough.
