From that moment on, Gu Chen no longer wanted to pretend to be a cripple. He longed to stand up, to stand beside the girl who softly glowed like moonlight and handed him the ball.
He had thought that orchestrating the Guan family’s pursuit of Meng Yu would create a rift between Shen Xi and Guan Lei, causing them to become adversaries. The outcome had indeed exceeded his expectations, as Shen Xi and Guan Lei had been apart for four years.
However, he had never anticipated that the connection between Meng Yu and Shen Xi ran so deep. Meng Yu was his absolute enemy, and he had even conspired with Sun Ming against Gu Xing.
Shen Xi had chosen Meng Yu over him, directly placing herself between them. Over these four years, Shen Xi had refused to see him, and there was nothing Gu Chen could do.
So, whether it was for Gu Xing or Shen Xi, Meng Yu had to die, Only then could his relationship with Shen Xi begin to mend.
As Qian Tong lay dying on the ground, Gu Chen had someone toss him into the dungeon.
In the next moment, he had someone pick a new Qian Tong to serve as his assistant. Yes, all his assistants were called Qian Tong.
As for the first Qian Tong, he died the moment he betrayed Gu Chen.
If it were not for Qian Tongs betrayal back then, he would not have ended up crippled for eight years, feigning disability for two.
He had every assistant named Qian Tong to remind himself that not everyone was worthy of trust.
After dinner, Zeng Rong wisely retreated to his room. Xue Li guarded the living room, while Li Zhe cuddled with Meng Yu in a warm blanket.
Meng Yu felt a slight chill on his wrist and looked down to see Li Zhe placing a watch on him. Curious, he asked, “What’s this?”
Li Zhe helped Meng Yu put on the watch and said, “This is a pair of couple watches I had customized four years ago after you left. I thought that one day when you returned, I could put it on for you.”
Li Zhe hugged Meng Yu, saying, “l had Shi Xuan bring it from the company this afternoon. Thankfully, I didn’t keep it at home. Otherwise, it might have been destroyed.”
Nieng Yu embraced Li Zhe back and smiled, “Since it’s a pair, what about yours? Aren’t you wearing it?”
Li Zhe slightly backed away and took out the watch, handing it to Meng Yu, saying, “I’m waiting for you to put it on me.”
Meng Yu’s heart fluttered. With a smiling gaze, he accepted the watch from Li Zhe and officially placed it on his wrist.
Li Zhe held Meng Yu tightly and said with a hint of apology, “I’m sorry for involving you in this. I knew it would put you in danger, but 1 couldn’t bear to let you go.”
“Thank you for not letting me go. I wouldn’t leave you either,” Meng Yu said as he rested his head on Li Zhe’s shoulder.
No matter what Li Zhe thought, Meng Yu knew he had fallen deeply and madly in love. At this moment, he would not leave Li Zhe, no matter what.
Early the next morning, Guan Lei left the house in a hurry. He felt the need to take some action; he could not stand the secretive nature of his relationship with Shen Xi any longer. He wanted to establish his status as her boyfriend.
When Guan Lei entered Lu Shan and the business partner’s meeting room, Lu Shan was visibly startled.
She looked at him with disdain and questioned, “Mr. Wang, what is the meaning of this?”
Mr. Wang on the other side was also taken aback. Who in Beijing did not know Young Master Guan from the Guan family? However, he had not invited Guan Lei for today’s business discussion with Lu Shan, had he?
Furthermore, judging from Lu Shan’s reaction, she seemed unaware that Guan Lei was coming.
Mr. Wang looked at Guan Lei with a polite smile and said eagerly, “l didn’t expect Young Master Guan’s esteemed presence. How may I help you?”
Guan Lei first greeted Lu Shan amiably, “Hello, auntie.”
However, Lu Shan coldly snorted and turned her face away from him.
Guan Lei shifted his gaze to Mr. Wang and calmly said, “l heard that Mr. Wang has an interesting investment project in progress, so I came to take a look.”
Lu Shan immediately turned around and quipped, “What’s this, Young Master Guan? Are you here to snatch my project?”
There was a hint of contempt in Lu Shan’s tone.
Guan Lei looked at Mr. Wang, his expression softened into a smile, and replied, “How could that be? Previously, Mr. Wang approached Guan Corporation for an investment, so I’m just here to listen.”
Mr. Wang was delighted to see that both the Guan and Lu families were vying for his project..
