Chapter 430: To Settle Scores (2)
When Gu Yu came out of the hospital, Assistant Lin was already waiting by the car and seemed slightly surprised when he noticed that Gu Yu’s blazer was gone. However, he does not dare to question anything when he saw the gloomy and tensed expression on Gu Yu’s handsome face.
He then opened the door to the back seat. After Gu Yu got into the car, he closed the door and jogged back to the front and settled down in the driver’s seat.
Assistant Lin then looked at Gu Yu via the rear mirror and asked, “CEO Gu, are we heading back to the company?”
Gu Yu remained silent for some time before he tapped his fingertips on the centre of his palm and instructed, “Find out where Uncle is.”
Assistant Lin acknowledged and quickly took out his phone to make a call. After he hung up, replied, “CEO Gu, Gu Xiong and his wife went to the manor an hour ago and have yet to leave.”
Gu Yu wasn’t surprised. He then sneered and ordered in a deep voice, “We’ll head over to the manor.”
“Yes sir!” Assistant Lin replied and started the car. After he stepped on the accelerator, the car quickly blended in among the traffic.
Assistant Lin finally understood why Gu Yu would skip work out of the blue and even pay Yun Rou a visit in the hospital. This wasn’t a visit. He was clearly here to settle the scores with her and after he was done with her, he had come to deal with Gu Xiong and his wife.
The car arrived at the old manor and stopped in the courtyard. After Gu Yu got out of the car, he headed straight for the main house.
Mr. Gu Sr. was seated on the sofa in the hall and seemed rather tired. Gu Xiong and Rong Fanghua stood side by side in front of him and looked guilt-ridden as they apologised to him humbly.
They claimed that they had acted on a moment of folly and did not deliberately plan to tarnish the Gu family’s reputation. They also highlighted that they had already realized their mistake and was begging for Mr. Gu Sr.’s forgiveness.
The sharp-eyed housekeeper quickly spotted Gu Yu, who was walking over, and reminded them, “The young master is back.”
Gu Xiong and Rong Fanghua exchanged a look and their expression instantly darkened.
They had come to plead with Mr. Gu Sr. before Gu Yu could settle scores with them because they knew that it would not have it easy if Gu Yu were to make a move. On the other hand, Mr. Gu Sr. was soft-hearted. If they were to admit their mistake and plead with him, he would forgive them and put in a few good words for them in front of Gu Yu. As Gu Yu respected Mr. Gu Sr., he would not be too ruthless towards them.
Unfortunately, Gu Yu had returned before they could obtain Mr. Gu Sr.’s forgiveness and it would not be easy for them to resolve the issue now.
After Gu Yu walked over and sat on the sofa, he greeted Mr. Gu Sr., “Grandpa, are you feeling better?”
The old man nodded and replied, “I’m fine now.”
Gu Yu then observed Mr. Gu Sr.’s face and when he realised that Mr. Gu Sr. seemed to be in good spirits, looked at Gu Xiong and Rong Fanghua lazily. The couple looked terrible and it was as if they had seen a ghost. “Uncle, Aunt, you don’t seem too happy to see me,” he remarked.
“Why would we,” Gu Xiong and his wife denied and quickly forced out a stiff smile. Gu Xiong then added on quickly, “Yu, you’re just in time. Your Aunt made a mistake yesterday. She acted on a moment of folly and so, I brought her here to apologize to you and Grandpa Gu.”
He then ordered Rong Fanghua, “Quick!”
But just when Rong Fanghua was about to speak, Gu Yu said, “I’m not interested to hear your apology. I’ve always been impartial in giving out rewards and punishments. She ruined Grandpa’s birthday banquet, tarnished our family’s reputation and humiliated my wife. All these acts are unforgivable!”
Gu Yu crossed his long legs elegantly and his lips curled up into a smile. His voice was deep and charming, but his words were as sharp as a knife. “Hand over your shares, Gu Xiong. I’ll give you a sufficient amount of money, but get out of the Gu Corporation,” he ordered.
