Lu Qichuan suddenly laughed and said, “How is that possible?”
“Lu…” Gu Juexi suddenly spoke up. “We have known each other for a very long time and I would give you anything I can if I could, but the one thing that I can never give to you is Ye Yuwei.”
Gu Juexi spoke in a very serious and determined tone, and this was the first time he had spoken this way to Lu Qichuan.
Lu Qichuan listened to Gu Juexi with a somber expression on his face.
“Gu, you are really overthinking it. I know that I should not set eyes on sister-in-law. You don’t have to worry about that,” Lu Qichuan said as he laughed. “Just let me know what is your next course of action once you have decided on it. I have to leave now.”
Gu Juexi was still tapping his fingers against his phone when Lu Qichuan got up to leave.
The evening sunset lit the entire B City in a beautiful orange shade.
When Ye Yuwei stepped out of her office in Rose Resort with Ye Xicheng by her side, she saw Gu Juexi who was leaning against his car waiting for her outside.
When Gu Juexi saw her, he quickly walked over to Ye Yuwei.
Ye Xicheng frowned and stood protectively in front of his mother. “What are you doing here?”
Ye Yuwei looked down at the little boy who was standing defensively in front of her, and her lips slowly curved into a smile.
“What are you doing here?” Ye Yuwei put away her smile as she looked up at Gu Juexi.
Gu Juexi looked at the woman who was being extremely cold to him and he saw that she was carrying a bag in her hand. There was a pot of cactus in the bag that she was holding.
It was the cactus that he had given her.
Ye Yuwei felt his gaze on her and subconsciously wanted to hide her hands behind her back. However, she suddenly thought of something and did not make any movements at all.
“Are you ready to leave?” Qian Yikun asked as he stepped out of Rose Resort. His question was directed towards Ye Yuwei. Qian Yikun only noticed Gu Juexi after he had finished asking his question.
Ye Yuwei’s car had run out of fuel. Therefore, Qian Yikun had offered to drop Ye Yuwei and Ye Xicheng back to Qianfeng Hotel.
However, as soon as Qian Yikun saw Gu Juexi, he knew immediately what he should do.
Gu Juexi had come specially to pick up Ye Yuwei.
“Then we do not need to trouble CEO Qian, I can drive them—”
“Brother Qian, we can leave now,” Ye Yuwei interrupted Gu Juexi’s sentence and held Ye Xicheng’s hand as they walked towards Qian Yikun’s car.
Ye Xicheng turned around and when he saw Gu Juexi’s black face, he made a monkey face at him. The old meatball had been beaten by mommy! He deserved it.
Gu Juexi started to get angry. He had left work early just to come over to Rose Resort to pick them up, but she had chosen to follow Qian Yikun instead.
The more he thought about it, the angrier he got. Gu Juexi quickly chased after Ye Yuwei and grabbed hold of her arm. “If you intend to find a new father for my children, you have to get my consent first.”
Gu Juexi regretted his sentence as soon as he said it. This was not what he had wanted to say but he lost control of himself.
Ye Xicheng laughed sarcastically as he looked at the old meatball. He not only had an extremely bad temper, but who did he think he was? Why must his mommy get his approval if she wanted to get a new father for him and his younger sister?
Ye Yuwei was really infuriated and she immediately threw the bag onto Gu Juexi’s chest. She must have been crazy to even think about bringing the cactus back home.
“You can smash this into your own heart and fix your retarded brain, ” 1 Ye Yuwei said as she took Ye Xicheng with her and quickly got into Qian Yikun’s car.
Gu Juexi was left standing on the roadside all by himself. The cactus that he had given her had fallen out of the bag and was right next to his feet.
This woman was really—
Ahhh……m getting fed-up with this childish attitude of both Gu Juexi & Ye Yuwei. Can’t they resolve things amicably
I support Gu Juexi too but Ye yuwei is so difficult he found the courage to confess that’s the first step but she always throws his efforts away…
M I the only one hu supported gjx 100% !???

Gu Juexi knitted his brows together as he stared at the cactus that was laying on the ground.
Had he sent her the wrong type of flowers?
Wasn’t Ye Yuwei a cactus herself?
Gu Juexi lifted his leg, wanting to kick the cactus away but then decided against it. He bent over and slowly picked up the pot of cactus.
Ye Xicheng leaned against the back seat as he looked out the back window and suddenly felt that he was in a better mood as he observed the old meatball who was getting further and further away.
Qian Yikun looked at the emotional Ye Yuwei who was sitting quietly in the passenger seat beside him, and then looked at the man who was left behind through his rear-view mirror.
She obviously could not let go off him.
Otherwise, she would not have been so affected by what Gu Juexi said.
“Actually, I feel that CEO Gu really cares about you,” Qian Yikun suddenly said, breaking the silence in the car. “Furthermore, I feel that you don’t hate him as much as you say you do.”
“Maybe it is because his reasons are so great that I can’t bring myself to hate him, but that does not mean that I am able to forgive him either,” Ye Yuwei replied as she heard Qian Yikun’s words.
Qian Yikun listened to Ye Yuwei’s explanation and subconsciously clenched the steering wheel tighter. “What do you mean?”
“He was once a soldier, and therefore, he would always be a soldier,” Ye Yuwei replied bitterly. “Everything that he does, he always does for the good of others. As for me, I can only try to do whatever I can to protect myself. I could never be the same as him. The both of us belong to two completely different worlds.”
Ye Xicheng frowned as he listened to the conversation between his mother and Qian Yikun. So, the old meatball used to be a soldier.
Therefore, when his mother said that his father had sacrificed his life for his country, she was not lying to him.
“In this world, it is already very difficult just to have a clear conscience,” Qian Yikun said. “From my perspective as a man, I can see that CEO Gu has really repented for your sake.”
Ye Yuwei leaned back against the passenger seat and suddenly let out a laugh.
“I suddenly realized that I am really unattractive. Shouldn’t I have a few pursuers loyally chasing after me?” Ye Yuwei jokingly said.
Lu Qichuan had indeed confessed his feelings for her in the past, but he had given up on her before even taking any action.
Qian Yikun had helped her so much and stayed by her side throughout the past few years, but now, he was telling her how much Gu Juexi loved her.
Was she destined not to be loved by anyone else in this lifetime?
“It is not that you do not have any charms. Yuwei, do you realize that you are always giving out a signal to everyone who tries to get close to you. It is as though you are telling them not to get close to you because your heart is already occupied by someone that you love very much. Furthermore, the person who has already occupied your heart seems to have a very strong standing and even if anyone is in love with you, they would get discouraged,” Qian Yikun said with a smile on his face. “For the past few years, there were countless number of men who had tried to go after you. However, they always give up before they even took any action. They did not give up because they felt inferior to you, but they gave up because they could see in your eyes, the feelings that you hold for that man in your heart.”
Ye Yuwei remained silent after listening to Qian Yikun’s words.
Initially, Ye Xicheng was playing on his cell phone on the back seat of the car. However, he frowned as soon as he heard Qian Yikun’s words before carefully observing his mother.
‘Is Mommy still in love with that old meatball?’
But Ye Xicheng did not understand. What was so good about that old meatball?
