Gu Juexi calmed his mind and walked down the stairs.
Song Helian—the man in military uniform with a square face and buff physique. His thick brows were close together and his lips pursed to express his extreme dissatisfaction.
Song Helian shouted at Gu Juexi the moment he saw him, "What are you doing now, boss?"
Gu Juexi put away his irrational emotions and behaved rationally.
"Whatever you saw. Are you blind?" said Gu Juexi who sat down in the sofa as one of the maids brought over a glass of water.
"Nine years. You planned for nine years! We got the fish on the hook and we can reel it in very soon! Our efforts will go down the drain if you treat Yu Sha-sha like this now," said Song Helian, who was almost screaming at Gu Juexi.
Gu Juexi looked at Song Helian.
"I made Liu Qiang lead that person away, he is not here now." Despite his short temper, Song Helian behaved himself in front of Gu Juexi.
"He won't get off the hook. I know what I am doing and what I should do," said Gu Juexi monotonously as he switched on the TV.
Gu Juexi tightened his grip on the TV remote control as he watched the news about the blockbuster starring Yu Sha'er. "She offends me," said Gu Juexi.
"What?" Song Helian asked, not understanding what Gu Juexi had just said.
Gu Juexi did not care to explain, because even he himself could not tell why he found Yu Sha'er offensive all of a sudden.
Song Helian inhaled sharply to suppress his temper.
"You planned it for so many years. Are you giving it up now because of Ye Yuwei? Do you remember Xi Tian, Shun Feng'er and Ju Shou and that thirty brothers who came to back us up? Do you remember how they died? They died before our eyes," said Song Helian, whose eyes turned red as he recalled what had happened back then.
Gu Juexi turned off the TV, leaned back on the sofa, and looked at Song Helian who was breathing heavily. "Even you don't believe in me?" asked Gu Juexi.
He used the word "even".
Song Helian paused, because of the "even".
So it really was because of Ye Yuwei.
"I know what I am doing," said Gu Juexi who was fidgeting with the TV remote control, his eyes cast down as he did not plan on explaining himself any further.
Song Helian looked at Gu Juexi, obviously not convinced.
Ye Yuwei came downstairs as Song Helian was about to leave.
It was the first time Ye Yuwei saw Song Helian in person. But the way Song Helian looked at Ye Yuwei sent chills down her spine.
Ye Yuwei stood where she was, wondering if she had offended Song Helian before.
