The reporters panicked upon hearing Assistant Lin’s announcement and Assistant Lin could not help but snort. “It’s too late to fear the consequences now. How dare they trifle with both Mr. Gu Sr. and the Young Mistress, who are important people to the Boss. This is as good as courting death,” he thought.
He then scanned the crowd and cleared his throat before he resumed, “You’re all here for the sake of finding news that’ll make the headlines. President Gu made an affectionate confession of love for his wife and I believe that this will be a good headline? Write well. If you don’t know how to do so, the public relations department from the Gu Corporation will send you articles for free. You can just be responsible for publishing the news! Is everything clear?”
As the Chief Assistant of the Gu Corporation, Assistant Lin, too, had a powerful aura. After all, he had been working with Gu Yu for many years and had learned from Gu Yu’s tone and intonation.
Thus, he managed to convey his threat to the reporters accurately and clearly through his final rhetorical question, which was said in a cold and indifferent tone of voice.
“Alright, today’s banquet is over. Thank you all for gracing the event.”
After Assistant Lin ended his speech, he instructed the bodyguards to keep watch as the reporters leave. He then stood by the exit with Master Xu to send the guests off on behalf of Gu Yu.
When Gu Yu and Xu Weilai entered Mr. Gu Sr.’s bedroom upstairs, the doctor had already completed his examination and prescribed medication. Mr. Gu Sr.’s emotions had also stabilized and he had regained consciousness. He was leaning against the headboard of his bed when they entered the room but before he could ask about the situation, Gu Yu assured, “Grandpa, everything’s fine now.”
While his reply was concise, it instantly allayed the fears of Mr. Gu Sr., for he had never doubted his grandson’s ability to handle things.
When he caught a glimpse of the ring on Xu Weilai’s finger from the corner of his eye, he smiled.
He does not need to worry about their relationship anymore since Gu Yu was even willing to give his mother’s ring to Xu Weilai.
Mr. Gu Sr. was initially dispirited, but now that he came to know of this great news, he was in high spirits as though he had been given a boost of energy. “I’m fine now. There’s nothing for you to worry about. It’s getting late, you should head home and rest early.”
As Xu Weilai was still worried about him, she asked, “Grandpa, do you really not need us to stay with you?”
“No, it’s fine,” Mr. Gu Sr. assured before he gave them a suggestive look. With a laughed, he said, “Hurry and leave. I’ll be fine if you can give me a big, chubby great-grandson!”
Both Gu Yu and Xu Weilai was rendered speechless.
“He must be fine if he could joke with us,” Gu Yu thought. He then pursed his lips and replied, “Rest well then, Grandpa. We’ll make a move.”
After Gu Yu instructed the housekeeper to take good care of Mr. Gu. Sr., he took hold of Xu Weilai’s hand and left the house.
Gu Yu took a shower in the guest room when they were back in the apartment. After he was done, returned to the bedroom and saw Xu Weilai, who was seated on the bed. She had also showered and was staring at the ring on her finger with a silly smile on her face.
Gu Yu could not help but grin when he saw her smile.
He then walked over and sat down beside her. Xu Weilai looked up at him and something flashed in her black pupils. But before Gu Yu could read what it was, she wrapped her arms around his neck and drew him in before she pressed her lips against his.
