Chapter 33 What is your relationship
On Saturday morning, Gu Xiaochen Lai was still sleeping in the bed.
Suddenly a phone call came in, but woke her up. The cell phone was clamoring constantly on the table, and she stretched her arm to fetch it. Take a closer look at her, and she opened her eyes openly as if facing an enemy. She hesitated and answered the phone.
The other party shouted “Hey”.
“Mr. Zhou, what’s the matter?” Gu Xiaochen asked directly, not wanting to be involved too much.
Zhou Chengze heard her hoarse and said in a deep voice, “I’m disturbing you to sleep.”
Gu Xiaochen stopped talking, the two were silent for a moment, and Zhou Chengze said again, “Are you free today?”
“What can be said now.” Gu Xiaoli didn’t want to meet him, the rejection seemed to be deeply ingrained, and it was carved into the blood.
Zhou Chengze said lightly, “It’s inconvenient on the phone. I’ll see you at Longcheng restaurant at 12 noon today. Let’s meet again.”
“I …” Before Gu Xiaochen spoke, he had hung up the phone.
Gu Xiaochen raised his hand and rested his forehead, his ankle was still painfully. She glanced at the phone, it was ten o’clock now. After lying down for a while, she then changed to light clothes, a black T-shirt and washed jeans. She carried a shoulder bag and went to the appointment.
The weather was incredibly hot, with a high temperature of 39 degrees.
When Gu Xiaochen rushed to the Longcheng restaurant, he was already sweating. She negotiated a few words with the waiter and was taken to the second floor.
“Miss, Mr. Zhou is over there.”
Gu Xiaochen nodded slightly towards the waiter, turned his head and looked around. I saw the position by the window. Zhou Chengze was wearing a blue shirt, and his suit jacket had been taken off. The glasses were on the table, he was drinking coffee, and his posture was elegant. The side face is lined with sunlight, just like the earl of ancient Europe.
Gu Xiaochen approached him and did not plan to sit, “Mr. Zhou.”
Zhou Chengze looked up at her, got up and pulled away the chair opposite, Shen Sheng said, “Sit down.”
Gu Xiaochen had to sit down, and Zhou Chengze sat back to his original position and shouted, “Waiter …”
“No need.” Gu Xiaochen stopped him, and said softly, with a strong female voice, “If you have anything to say, I’m eager to leave.”
“So hurry?” Zhou Chengze waved to Waiter and asked.
Gu Xiaochen said “En”.
“Last night, Yaru was too capricious.” Zhou Chengze said slowly, his long fingers picked up the glasses and put them on.
Gu Xiaochen smiled faintly, “If Mr. Zhou just wants to tell me this, I don’t have to come here.”
Zhou Chengze stared at her for a while, Shen Sheng said, “What is your relationship?”
Gu Xiaochen knew that he was asking about his relationship with Wu Helian, but he made her feel uncomfortable when he heard it. He also stared at him and said softly, “Mr. Zhou, I work at Wu, I am his assistant.”
“Just that?” Zhou Chengze pushed the glasses on the bridge of his nose, his tone somewhat suspicious.
Sudden humiliation made Gu Xiaochen’s chest sullen. She smiled indifferently. “If Mr. Zhou thinks there is any other relationship, then there is. Is it all right? I’ll go first.”
The chair made a long mopping sound and she was about to leave when she got up.
Zhou Chengze didn’t stop, just looked at her back and said, “Have you thought about how Aunt Fen feels when she knows?”
Gu Xiaochen stopped, and said lightly, “The Qing people clear themselves.”
“Mr. Zhou, can I serve?” The waiter approached him and asked politely.
“No need, pay.” Zhou Chengze said with a deep voice, silently looking out the window. The thin figure limped across the zebra crossing and gradually went away.
Throughout the weekend, Gu Xiaochen did not go out again. By Monday, her feet were not completely well, and she had to prop up to work. I wiped the wine, but it seemed useless, thinking about whether to go to the hospital to see a doctor. When she came to the company, it happened that Secretary Xia came out of the pantry.
The two collided in the corridor.
Gu Xiaochen remembered Friday night and suddenly didn’t know what to say.
“Early.” Secretary Xia remained indifferent and greeted casually, walking past her.
“Early.” Gu Xiaochen suddenly breathed a sigh of relief and walked into the office.
Every Monday at 9 o’clock in the morning there is a weekly meeting, Gu Xiaochen walked on the last side, forced to endure foot pain to the conference hall. It was not until she sat down that she felt her nerves relax.
Managers and responsible supervisors of various departments came together one after another, and Yan Xudong came last.
Yan Xudong smiled at Gu Xiaochen, and Gu Xiaochen smiled.
Secretary Xia entered the conference hall, and everyone knew that Wu Helian had arrived, “Master Lian.”
Wu Helian’s long figure flashed, and the sense of oppression came. He sat in a high position with his hands flat on the arms of the chair, overlapping his chest casually.
Secretary Xia distributed the access information from last week to everyone, and the half-hour meeting began. During the period, adjustments and related improvement proposals were made for periodic financial projects. Until there was no objection, Wu Helian “broke up the meeting”, and everyone got up and left.
Secretary Xia and the other two assistants walked behind Wu Helian, and Gu Xiaochen planned to be at the bottom.
Yan Xudong walked in front of Gu Xiaochen with the document in his arms and asked in a low voice, “Does your uncle like that gift?”
Gu Xiaochen looked up and smiled, “I like it.”
“That’s good.” Yan Xudong bent his mouth, “Go.”
Gu Xiaochen wanted to be the last one, now it’s embarrassing. She had to get up and walk out of the meeting room with him. But her foot tingled, and she couldn’t help shaking.
Yan Xudong’s eyes were quick and he helped her, “What’s wrong with your feet?”
“It may be sitting for too long, so a bit numb.” Gu Xiaochen lied casually.
Yan Xudong looked at her feet suspiciously and let go.
Gu Xiaochen looked up, Wu Helian in front had entered the elevator.
Back to the top floor, the old rules, she first rushed a cup of coffee to the president’s office, “Master Lian, coffee.”
Wu Helian nodded without saying a word. When she turned around, he looked up and sharply glanced at her ferocious feet.
For three days in a row, the high temperature remained, and Gu Xiaochen still went to work, still suffering from foot pain.
On Thursday afternoon, it is 3:10.
“Assistant Gu, even Master Young asked you to go to the Rongsheng company to negotiate.” Secretary Xia entered the office and looked at Gu Xiaochen. “Get ready now, don’t let Master Lian wait.”
Gu Xiaochen raised his head and whispered, “Okay.”
After adjusting the information from the other two assistants, Gu Xiaochen looked at it carefully. There was indeed no mistake. Then he picked up the document and carried his shoulder bag into the president ’s office to report, “Master Lian.”
Wu Helian pressed the phone button and Shen Sheng said, “Secretary Xia, is the car ready?”
“Master Lian, already prepared, waiting downstairs.” Secretary Xia’s cold female voice brought some softness.
Wu Helian hung up the phone and stretched her long arm to grab the suit jacket and held it in her hand. He took his steps and walked past Gu Xiaochen without saying a word. Gu Xiaochen was silent, followed him downstairs to the car, went to Rongsheng Company to discuss the cooperation case.
After arriving at Rongsheng Company, Rongsheng CEO received a warm reception, “Mr. He, how come in person.”
“Mr. Rong, you’re welcome.” Wu Helian said calmly, shaking hands in greeting.
Wu and Rongsheng jointly voted for a commercial plot this time. After some talks, the negotiation was smooth. When Gu Xiaochen left Rongsheng Company with Wu Helian, it was less than four o’clock.
The two got into the car and the driver turned around and asked, “Master Lian, where are you going now?”
Wu Helian silently spit out two words, “The nearest hospital.”
“Yes.” The driver immediately stepped on the accelerator and headed towards the nearby hospital.
Gu Xiaochen was confused, thinking of the hospital, her feet started to hurt again. Unconsciously frowning, seeing himself faintly reflected in the car window, a pale face is really terrible.
The hospital is always filled with a pungent smell of disinfectant water, as well as patients in white medical gowns, busy nurses and doctors. Entering the hall on the ground floor of the hospital, Wu Helian Mo turned around and asked, “Is your ID card brought?”
Gu Xiaochen suspiciously responded, “Bring it.”
“Bring it.” He always ordered the tone, not to be refused.
“What to do?” Gu Xiaochen asked softly.
Wu Helian stared at her and said silently, “Registered.”
“Why did you take me?” Gu Xiaochen had an idea flashing in his head, but he was not sure yet.
Did he come to the hospital because of her?
Wu Helian suddenly frowned, apparently impatient, “work needs.”
Work required? Gu Xiaochen heard him say this, the thoughts left in her mind turned into a bubble, she made a reluctant “Oh” sound, holding the document in one hand and groping in the shoulder bag in the other. Finally found the resident ID card and handed it to him.
Wu Helian took her ID card and turned to her subordinate, “Go to register.”
“Yes.” The subordinate took the ID card and ran to the registration office to rule it out.
Gu Xiaochen realized this, but his ID card had been taken away. I don’t know what happened, Mo’s warmth in my heart also brought a sour taste, like lemon slices.
“Please let it go! Lady in front, please let me go!” The nurse pushed the sick car into the hall, where the unconscious patient was lying.
Wu Helian grabbed her hand and dragged her aside. Gu Xiaochen was stunned when he dragged Chanfeng to the floor-to-ceiling window. His hands were loosened and she stopped. Wu Helian’s long body leaned against the wall, her left leg bent slightly, exuding a lazy temperament, “Why not come to the hospital?”
She lowered her head, stared at her feet, and said softly, “Actually … it’s not too serious.”
“Will it be serious to wait until you can’t walk?” Wu Helian stared at her side face, her tone cold.
Gu Xiaochen pursed his lips and stopped talking.
“Master Lian, the registration form.” The subordinate turned back after completing the procedures, Wu Helian grabbed it, and Shen Sheng said, “The car is left, you can get off work.”
“Thank you Master Lotus.”
Wu Helian directly grabbed Gu Xiaochen’s arm and dragged her to ask, “Where is the surgery?”
“Turn left on the third floor.” The nurse turned back, staring back at her froze.
On the third floor of the surgery, the doctor asked Gu Xiaochen to take off his shoes. The doctor gently squeezed her ankle to check the injury, and then asked some questions. Then she said, “Miss, your foot is so swollen like this, why don’t you see it? A small injury can’t be cured. All right!”
“Take an X-ray film and check it thoroughly.” Wu Helian’s deep male voice turned from behind, and Gu Xiaochen blushed.
After taking the X-ray film, I took the medicine again, tossed it, and blinked to five o’clock.
Gu Xiaochen walked out of the pharmacy with the medicine, turned around, and saw Wu Helian standing alone in the smoking area around the corner of the corridor, smoking a cigarette. When he smoked, he habitually smoked his left hand. Gu Xiaochen approached him, Wu Helian looked up at her, “Okay?”
“I’ll send you.” He took a sigh of cigarettes and pinched the cigarette butts to the side trash can.
Gu Xiaochen hurriedly shook his hand, “No more trouble.”
Wu Helian seems to be accustomed to her refusal, he just about to take a step, but the phone in his pocket rang. He took out his mobile phone and turned to the side to talk on the phone. Gu Xiaochen heard his short response.
“Got it, I will come back immediately.” Wu Helian said in a deep voice, and hung up the phone.
“I can go back by myself.” Gu Xiaochen said quickly as soon as he hung up the phone.
Wu Helian looked at her sideways without saying a word. Gu Xiaochen was stared at him in a daze, and looked away from him. He didn’t focus on his eyes. After a while, he heard him say indifferently, “I’ve been thinking whether we have a holiday.”
“No.” Gu Xiaochen smiled a little, but he felt a sigh in his heart.
For a while, Wu Helian said, “Let’s go.”
The two went downstairs, Wu Helian went across the road to pick up the car, while Gu Xiaochen went across the bus. Still waiting for the car, only to see the car approaching slowly, passing across the road across the road.
Gu Xiaochen hugged the things in his arms alone, like an abandoned child.
Lin Fen finally called to ask about the birthday, and she said indistinctly, “Xiao Chen, mother doesn’t object to your boyfriend. But some things can be done, some things can’t. But mother always knows you are obedient Good boy.”
Gu Xiaochen didn’t say much, just a faint sentence, “Mom, I know.”
Yeah, she always knew.
Day after day, the hot summer finally came to an end. At the end of summer, when autumn came, Gu Xiaochen received an invitation call from the university monitor, claiming that the university was celebrating the celebration, and the separated students also took the opportunity to gather.
Gu Xiaochen thought about it and agreed.
The celebration was held on the weekend in October. The day was cloudy and the wind was a bit windy.
Gu Xiaochen wore a white knitted cardigan and wore a long blue dress with flat shoes. Compared to college girls who tend to wear cool and avant-garde styles, she looks a little different. Especially the black-rimmed glasses on the bridge of the nose are awkward at all.
She wandered to the tree-lined road of the campus, admiring everything in the school along the way, and couldn’t help lamenting the hurried years.
Gu Xiaochen came to the agreed class and looked around and found that the graduated students, both men and women, became mature and stable, and were no longer young boys and girls.
“Big event! Senior Wu Helian, the financial giant, also came to school today! We are still giving lectures in the lobby of Building C!” Someone shouted.
Suddenly, the crowd swarmed the building C.
Gu Xiaochen couldn’t help frowning, why can he meet him everywhere?
“Gu Xiaochen, why don’t you go? Let’s go together.” Someone dragged her and ran out together.
In the lobby of Building C, the seats of nearly a thousand people are full of students. When Gu Xiaochen arrived, he had no place and had to stand in the aisle in the last row. After a while, the host walked up to the podium and raised his hand in silence.
The crowd suddenly fell silent.
“Welcome Mr. Wu Helian, President of Wu’s.”
With warm applause, Wu Helian stepped onto the stage with a vigorous pace. Facing the attention of thousands of people, he maintained a consistent calmness and calmness. Wu Helian’s heroic posture exudes the charm of a mature man.
Wu Helian and the host were sitting on the sofa one after another.
When the host asked questions, Wu Helian responded in an orderly manner, and discussed the future development trend of the financial industry. At the last program, he asked questions on the spot.
Someone raised their hands, “Can I call you Lotus Senior?”
“Of course.” Wu Helian smiled.
“Can I ask a personal question then?” As the words came out, there was a lot of noise.
Wu Helian’s mouth twitched slightly, “Then it depends on how private your personal problems are.”
“I want to ask Mr. Wu, do you really have so many girlfriends?” The clear female voice resounded through the lobby, and the shouting went back and forth.
Gu Xiaochen looked at Wu Helian on the podium, his memory suddenly became clear, and he recalled everything that year. When she recovered, the speech was over, and there was applause in her ears. She withdrew her eyes and walked out of the lobby silently.
“Gu … Xiaochen?” Behind him came a suspicious female voice.
Gu Xiaochen looked around and saw a woman wearing a graceful short skirt, a standard melon seed face, big and bright eyes, very beautiful.
“Sister Baihui?” Based on memory, Gu Xiaochen shouted a long-lost name.
“It really is you.” Bai Hui walked to her in front of her, “I haven’t seen you for a long time.”
Gu Xiaochen nodded, “I haven’t seen you for a long time.”
“You are still the same.” Bai Hui said. Gu Xiaochen couldn’t help but looked down at himself. Sure enough, it was still the same as before, unchanged.
Bai Hui thought of something, holding Gu Xiaochen, said softly, “Do you remember Senior Lian? Go, let’s see Senior Lian and see if he has any impression.”
“I’m not going.” Gu Xiaochen hurriedly refused, but Bai Hui dragged her around the back corridor and turned to the background. Bai Hui is the daughter of the school manager. After a few words, she successfully entered the background.
Backstage, Wu Helian was chatting with Wencai’s host.
Bai Hui pulled Gu Xiaochen to walk in front of him, “Senior Lian, don’t you know if you have any impression of me?”
Wu Helian looked at her and smiled, obviously no longer impressed.
Bai Hui couldn’t help but be disappointed, and pushed the person beside him to him, “Senior Lian, do you still have an impression of her? Gu Xiaochen, say hello to Senior Lian quickly.”
Gu Xiaochen was very embarrassed and had to raise his head, “Lian … Senior.”
Wu Helian looked at her quietly for a while.
“She is Gu Xiaochen, did Senior Lian forget it?” Bai Hui started to look back, “Gu Xiaochen’s freshman year participated in the debate PK competition on behalf of the freshman finance department. But in the final round, she was late and hurt. The finance department failed. Senior Lian also educated her. ”
Wu Helian’s eyes have a focal length.
Gu Xiaochen was very calm, but he thought: Is that education? In front of a thousand students, she was scolded completely by him.
“Sister Baihui, the director is looking for you.”
“I’m going right away.” Bai Hui said back, and said regretfully, “Senior Lian, I’ll talk later.” She had no choice but to leave.
Wu Helian nodded slightly towards Bai Hui, and Gu Xiaochen said sternly, “Don’t disturb.”
“Wait.” Wu Helian started to block, Gu Xiaochen froze, he asked in a deep voice, “You are not like someone who will be late for no reason, why was it late that day?”
The scarred heart was suddenly torn open, and Gu Xiaochen lowered his head and said nothing.
Suddenly, she casually said, “Overslept.”
Gu Xiaochen hurriedly turned and walked away, but Wu Helian noticed the unusual redness in the moment she turned.
And she will never tell anyone the night before the debate.
It was … mother’s wedding.
