Chapter 178 Things in Britain
On the winter day of December, it was already completely dark at 8pm.
The dark blue night sky is dotted with stars, and the streets are full of neon lights. The taxi carried Gu Xiaochen and Yu Mei towards the five-star hotel. Along the way, Yu Mei asked about the ability of this lawyer Lei Shaoheng. Gu Xiaochen relayed what she knew. Lei Shaoheng, such a well-known lawyer, won countless lawsuits. She was shocked when she heard that she knew that Lei Mr. is not an ordinary person.
The car drove for more than twenty minutes and finally drove into the hotel.
The waiter stepped forward to open the door and Gu Xiaochen got out of the car.
At the other end of the revolving door is the bright and transparent hotel lobby. Before entering, the heating is constantly blowing out, making people feel a little warm. Bright crystal lights, bright floors, and carpets are clearly visible. At this time, private cars stopped and drove away. The people who walked in and out were dressed brightly, and at a glance, they knew that each of them was of extraordinary value. Yu Mei paid the car and hurriedly bypassed the body and walked to Gu Xiaochen’s side.
The two entered with the revolving door and walked into the lobby. The lobby is also ridiculously large, with mirrors everywhere. Gu Xiaochen only learned from Wu Helian that Lei Shaoheng lived here, but she did not know which room he lived in, nor did he know his contact information. I had to go to the front desk and asked the PR lady. The other party responded with a smile and politely, telling them that their guests’ information was not easy to disclose.
“Xiao Chen, is that lawyer Lei really staying in this hotel?” Yu Mei asked anxiously.
“Well,” Gu Xiaochen whispered softly, and Wu Helian’s words would not be false.
“So shall we wait here?” Yu Mei was helpless and couldn’t think of any way. She had to gritt her teeth.
Gu Xiaochen nodded and walked towards the sofa seating area with her. After sitting down, it was not a way for her to think so much. She took out her mobile phone and called Yao Yongxin and asked her what was Wu Helian’s mobile number. Yao Yongxin’s words caused a ripple in her heart, “Lian’s number has not changed, it is the same as before, this guy is very old.”
She didn’t even ask what that number was. Her finger touched the keyboard, like a ghost, or she was already memorizing it, so she didn’t think much, but pressed his number, and the string of numbers appeared on the screen. It was only after she discovered how long had she never called him.
He returned to Hong Kong more than two years later. Apart from the few meetings between them, they did not make a phone call. She even has to forget the eagerness of holding a mobile phone and waiting for the call to be connected. But now she revisits again, and she finds that her heart will still wait urgently.
The phone rang for several times, and then it was connected, but there was no sound.
Gu Xiaochen’s breathing stopped for a moment, and then he began to “feed”.
Wu Helian only responded when Xu heard her voice. His male voice was low and hoarse, and he murmured through the microphone. “What?”
She lowered her voice and asked softly, “Is it causing you to sleep?”
” No. ” He replied in a deep voice , adding, “
I’m not asleep yet.” “I want to ask you, which room does Mr. Lei live in?”
“Are you in the hotel?” He immediately asked back, the volume increased a little. Minute.
Gu Xiaochen said “en”, but the phone was suddenly hung up by him. She was a little inexplicable, but there was a string of blind sounds near her ears. Once the phone was gone, she had no courage to make the second call. Staring down at the phone, a ridiculous idea sprang up. Will he call him?
Yu Mei kept staring at the elevator and the gate, just because Lawyer Lei would slip away from under her nose.
Suddenly, two of the elevators went down at the same time.
As soon as the elevator door opened, the man was dressed in an Italian handmade suit. He inserted the side pockets of his trousers with one hand and walked out with a vigorous pace. The golden ratio of the inverted triangle, the heroic spirit, the smile raised in the corner of the mouth will make people feel comfortable. He is chic and exudes the charm of a mature man between his hands and head. But if you look closely, you will find that his smile is always cold with tenderness and cruel with tenderness. His eyes, dark brown color, cold light condensed under the light, cast a warm illusion.
Behind him, followed by a man and a woman.
“Xiaochen, Xiaochen.” Yu Mei immediately hit her with her elbow, and asked with little confidence, “Is Mr. Lei?”
Gu Xiaochen raised his head when he heard the sound, and he really saw the pedestrian, and his eyes touched the headed man She said
happily , “It’s him!” Almost immediately, Yu Mei rushed up, followed by Gu Xiaochen.
“Mr. Lei, please stay!”
Suddenly, the woman who rushed out to stand in front of him stopped Lei Shaoheng’s footsteps, but he did not step back, slightly bowed his head, and looked down at her from the top. Yu Guang glanced at another woman and recognized her. He raised his lips and quipped, “Isn’t this Miss Gu?”
“Mr. Lei.” Gu Xiaochen shouted with a smile, and walked to Yu Mei’s side also blocking him .
“There are quite a lot of people looking for me today, but I really don’t have time now, I catch the plane.” Lei Shaoheng said with a smile, these two sentences are not so simple, but they also have another meaning, knowing for sure They refused to show that they would never take over the case.
“Mr. Lei, please do me a favor! Please play a lawsuit!” Yu Mei pleaded, “How much does it cost, I will give it! You will make a price!”
Lei Shaoheng looked at her steadfastly, The smile was even worse, “Oh? What’s this lady’s surname?”
“My name is Yu Mei.”
“Miss Yu, how much can you pay me to bring a lawsuit?”
Yu Mei said calmly, “Then it depends on how much money Mr. Lei opened. Only willing to take it!”
“Oh, interesting, really interesting.” Lei Shaoheng chuckled, “You can’t afford the price I opened.”
“A hundred million dollars, can you pay?” Lei Shaoheng opened Out of the sky-high price, Yu Mei stopped talking.
Lei Shaoheng glanced at her lightly and said, “Speak to me, don’t be so crazy, you don’t have this qualification! Understand?”
Yu Mei clenched her fists, Li Rong was blue and white.
“Mr. Lei…” Gu Xiaochen hugged Yu Mei, just about to speak, but was interrupted by Lei Shaoheng, “Miss Gu, I won’t take this case, you don’t have to say more. I’m leaving now, welcome you Come to Chuncheng as a guest.”
Gen. Lei Shaoheng said with a smile, and walked by the two of them.
Yu Mei bit her lip stubbornly and turned around to catch up with him again and stopped in front of him, “Mr. Lei, please! Please beg this case!”
“Are you asking? If you ask, it seems like it should be A little sincere?” Lei Shaoheng said quietly.
Sincerity? Yu Mei shivered as a whole, her heart tightened, and she knelt in front of him as soon as she gritted her teeth.
Yu Mei’s actions were too rapid and too sudden, which made Gu Xiaochen unable to respond. She was stunned and hurried to the side, reaching for her, but Yu Mei remained motionless and knelt there stubbornly. She lowered her head, her former pride, the clamoring look, had disappeared long ago. She didn’t know why she made such a move at this time, and she didn’t even want to understand that the instinctive reaction made her involuntarily.
“Mei Mei…” Gu Xiaochen’s cry, Yu Mei could not hear.
There were people walking in the lobby constantly, watching her kneeling in front of him, but Yu Mei felt like no one else. The curious attention was not important to her at all. Her voice was very soft, and she said in a low voice, “Mr. Lei, I don’t know if this kind of sincerity is enough. Please, please take this case and fight this case!”
“Mr. Lei! Please!” Gu Xiaochen was shocked to say that Xu Dong’s status in Yu Mei’s heart, she wanted to pull Yu Mei up, but couldn’t pull it up. In desperation, she turned to Lei Shaoheng for pleading.
The two women begged in front of him at the same time, but Lei Shaoheng still had that faint smile, as if it had nothing to do with him at all, he was just staying out of the way, “Miss Yu, if everyone is like you, then I am not busy But here it comes.”
His stern, nonchalant words said quietly, making people so cold that they were soaked in ice. At this moment, Gu Xiaochen and Yu Mei looked up at him at the same time, only to find the man in front of him smiling calmly but not indifferently, but they made them feel chilled.
His smile is also cold.
“Thunder.” Suddenly, the man’s faint cries sounded.
Hearing this title, Lei Shaoheng knew who he was without looking up. He frowned with annoyance. Sure enough, he saw Wu Helian walking slowly towards him. “Are you here to see me off?”
Wu Helian saw them stopped at Lei from a distance. In front of Shao Heng, he recognized one of them at a glance. As for the other woman who was kneeling, he did not recognize who he was until he got closer. A few strides approached Gu Xiaochen. He looked at Lei Shaoheng and said, “Lei, take over this case.”
“You know my rules.” Lei Shaoheng said casually, not in a hurry.
At this time, the female assistant’s mobile phone rang and received a call. In response, she approached Lei Shaoheng and handed him the phone respectfully, “Mr. Lei, Miss’s phone.”
Lei Shaoheng took the phone without saying a word, and only heard the soft female voice on the phone ring, “I The fever is gone.”
Even without waiting for him to speak, the man immediately hung up the phone.
Lei Shaoheng handed the phone back to the assistant, glanced at Wu Helian, and swept at Gu Xiaochen and Yu Mei, then looked at him and asked with a smile, “Do you eat midnight?”
Gu Xiaochen and Yu Mei opened their eyes wide, Does this mean he agreed to accept the case?
Lei Shaoheng suddenly changed her mind, which really surprised and delighted them. It’s just that his “eating midnight snacks” only invited Wu Helian and Gu Xiaochen. Yu Mei saw that he promised to sue, but fortunately, she didn’t say much, let Gu Xiaochen stay, but left alone. And Gu Xiaochen only felt that this man was erratic and opaque.
“Miss Gu, you introduce a place.” Lei Shaoheng threw to her the problem of eating a place to choose from.
“Otherwise let’s go to the night gear?” Gu Xiaochen thought for a while and thought about it. As soon as I spoke, I was surprised. The two of them, so respected, how could they go to the street and eat that kind of civilian snack?
Lei Shaoheng didn’t dislike it. Instead, he was very interested. “Then go.”
Wu Helian nodded and acquiesced.
A group of people turned to Hong Kong’s busiest night market street. The whole street was full of snacks, and the smell alone would make people salivate. Two such handsome men followed Gu Xiaochen forward, and the crowd around them voluntarily gave way. Gu Xiaochen’s attention was all devoted to the snack, because they all gave her the task. She knew nothing about it, and bought many kebabs in a blink of an eye.
“Give me.” Wu Helian said when she saw her hands full, Shen Sheng said.
Lei Shaoheng smiled and whispered, “Thoughtful.” After
buying some snacks, the three chose a stall to sit down. After ordering a few dishes, Gu Xiaochen avoided the spicy food deliberately. I was afraid that a sick man would be uncomfortable after eating. She turned her head to look at Wu Helian and couldn’t help but ask, “Are you… have you eaten?”
“Eat.” Wu Helian raised her eyebrows and looked unscathed .
“Then eat some more.” Gu Xiaochen ordered a bowl of lean porridge specially, and asked instead, “Mr. Lei, would you like lean porridge?”
“Okay.” Lei Shaoheng responded lightly, so he could relax. Looking at them.
On the side dish, also on the porridge. The porridge is a bit hot, Gu Xiaochen carefully took the spoon to stir, blowing the heat. She waited until it was almost cold before she brought the bowl of porridge to him, “I can drink it.”
Wu Helian turned her head and glanced at her. She saw a pale face covered with dim light, but it was extremely warm and exceptionally gentle. He looked back indifferently and took a spoon to start drinking porridge. After finishing the porridge, Gu Xiaochen filled another bowl of fish soup and put it in front of him again. “Carassius auratus soup, you have to drink some.”
Wu Helian was too clever to drink the bowl of soup.
Lei Shaoheng watched quietly beside him, not caring whether he was a light bulb or not, but he suddenly said, “Miss Gu, so late, you should go home.”
“Then I’m gone, you don’t need to send me , I just need to take a taxi.” Gu Xiaochen glanced at the time, it was almost ten o’clock, it was indeed a little late, and the midnight meal was almost the same. She said hello and got up and left.
Wu Helian didn’t mean to get up, Shen Sheng said, “When you get home, give me a message.”
Lei Shaoheng looked at Gu Xiaochen and walked away, he asked funnyly, “Lian, you don’t drink fish soup.
Have you?” I had a meal before, and there was fish soup on the table. The waiter just wanted to serve him a bowl, Wu Helian screamed hard. Obviously he never drinks fish soup, and he doesn’t like it.
Wu Helian ignored him and beckoned the boss, “The remaining porridge and fish soup are packaged.”
“Wait!” He drank and stared at the bowl in his hand. “This bowl of me I bought it too!”
“Why didn’t you send her home?”
Wu Helian was so stunned that she didn’t know whether it was sour or sorry, just three words, “Inconvenient.”
Lei Shaoheng was bored for a while, but Can’t help snickering.
so funny! It seems that he does not know that Gu Xiaochen is divorced!
After Lei Shaoheng took over the case, he still laid back all day, pulling Gu Xiaochen out to play. Of course, we must bring Wu Helian together. One day or two can be tolerant, but after a few days, Wu Haoyang can’t stand it anymore. After Gu Xiaochen came to his place to ask for leave, he threw the document on the table and shouted angrily, “He is also called a lawsuit?”
Yao Yong was very calm, and it seemed that the lawyer would not play the card as usual . She picked up the official document and put it back in front of him again. “Yang President, please look at the document.”
“I really doubt that the lawyer is a fake. It looks pretty good, but it has no effect.” Wu Haoyang grumbled while holding it. Sign your name with a pen. He didn’t even read the contents of the file, which made Yao Yong frown. “Mr. Yang, don’t you see clearly? Be careful I
lost public funds!” Wu Haoyang snorted coldly, “If you lose public funds, your child will have your last name!”
Yao Yongxin hadn’t responded yet. When she recovered, she shouted, “Don’t talk nonsense!”
“Who talks nonsense!” Wu Haoyang signed the document, put down the pen, and looked up at her. Only then did she find that her hair had grown a lot, spreading it softly on her shoulders, and her big eyes glowed with light, which was really beautiful. He stared at her for a long while, and Yao Yongxin felt a little hairy. He couldn’t help but ask, “What are you looking at?”
Wu Haoyang nodded thoughtfully and murmured, “Female Eighteen Change, this sentence doesn’t seem to be said Wrong. You see you were thin and thin when you were a kid. You have no chest, no hips, but now it seems to be much better.” When he was talking, he kept staring at the double peaks on her chest, as if praised, “Now there should be everything, which is much better than before!”
“Wu Haoyang!” Yao Yongxin was blushed by what he said, and he grabbed whatever he wanted and hit him.
“Hello!” Wu Haoyang saw what she was holding and shouted quickly, “Don’t smash this! It will be miserable if smashed!”
Yao Yongxin turned his head and found that what he was holding was a model train. This model is Wu Helian’s baby, because this is the last gift his mother gave him, so Wu Helian is especially cherished. Since their mother and son were separated, they haven’t communicated much, and Lian’s attitude was not in harmony with his mother. But in my heart, I still love.
“Put it down! Put it down!” Wu Haoyang comforted.
Yao Yongxin took a deep breath and had to put down the train model.
“Let’s eat together at noon!” Wu Haoyang hurriedly changed the subject, only to fear that a certain woman would “kill and kill.”
Yao Yongxin suddenly changed his face, smiling at him very charmingly, “I’m sorry, Mr. Yang, I
have an appointment .” “Who did you make an appointment with?” Wu Haoyang looked so dark, guessing who she had made an appointment with.
Yao Yongxin calmly picked up the document, nodded slightly, and turned away without turning back. And he still roaring asked behind her no matter regardless, “Hey! Hey Hey! Yao Yong heart! You have nothing to say! You come back here! Did not you hear? You are not to the police for dinner! Do you hear?”
Floor to ceiling windows The sky outside was blue, and the people were in a good mood.
The bustling market, the dazzling array of shops, some strange and cute things, that is the favorite of women. This street is the busiest market in Hong Kong, and it is also a place where many couples love to hang out. In the past two days, Gu Xiaochen and Lei Shaoheng visited some special attractions, and they couldn’t find any interesting places, so he took him here. It seems that the development of the situation is a bit strange. The two men followed behind, but Gu Xiaochen was planted in this small shop and could not extricate himself.
Wu Helian and Lei Shaoheng followed silently, his eyes fixed on her figure.
“Hey, it’s a pity that she is married. I don’t know which man is so blessed.” Lei Shaoheng was obviously deliberate and came to fight him.
Wu Helian should not be silent, and Lei Shaoheng talked eloquently, “What a beautiful girl in Huiwai Huizhong, I will love breakfast in the morning, and I will prepare a lunch box at noon, maybe I will deliver it in person. A table of dishes, waiting for the husband to go home to eat together. The house is always tidy and organized…”
And his mind seemed to outline a picture. She wears an apron and stands in the busy figure in the kitchen. She will ask for good or bad when she eats. She will make the bed before going to bed and her favorite plaid pattern. The man is also wearing plaid pajamas and slippers. ? They…
Wu Helian thought about it, the unspeakable sourness made him almost out of control.
“Sir, look at the crystal ball. The advanced simulation is so beautiful. Buy one for your girlfriend?” the peddler yelled gleefully.
The crystal ball was put in Wu Helian’s hand, and only heard the sound of “creaking”. The hawker did not care much, and the crystal ball was returned to the hawker. Wu Helian walked forward, and the hawker lowered her head, only to find that the crystal ball was cracked. “Sir, sir, you broke my crystal ball…”
“Enough?” Lei Shaoheng took a few photos The bill, the hawker smiled, “Enough! Enough!”
Gu Xiaochen lingered among the stalls of piles of fluffy dolls. Wu Helian approached her and looked at what she was looking for. He seemed to be guessing at the same time. Looking for. Suddenly, with a sharp glance at the pink bauble, he reached out. Gu Xiaochen only felt that her hand was stretched out behind her. She froze and saw him grabbing the pink HELLOKITTY cat. “Are you looking for this?”
Gu Xiaochen looked back at him, but he was so close, his breath Suddenly, she turned her head and wiped his face with her lips, leaving a faint trace. Wu Helian is also obviously a rigid, even no longer natural. Haven’t they kissed or hugged, but will he be so nervous?
Wu Helian put the cat doll down in front of her and deserted her sideways.
Lei Shaoheng walked slowly from behind, as if watching a good show. He looked at the Kitty cat in Gu Xiaochen’s hands and asked with a smile, “Women like this?”
“Well, Lawyer Lei, don’t you think it’s cute?” Gu Xiaochen took the cat in front of him and said with a smile.
Lei Shaoheng frowned, with some disapproval, “The woman I know, she listens to rock and roll and she doesn’t look like a woman at all.” “Listen to rock and roll? Drum?” Gu Xiaochen opened his eyes wide and exclaimed in surprise, “So handsome Oh!”
Wu Helian saw them chatting so happily, narrowed her eagle eyes, and suddenly said, “That woman is his wife.”
“Uh? Lawyer Lei, are you married?” Gu Xiaochen was surprised again.
Lei Shaoheng only smiled, neither admitted nor denied, and secretly thought: Lian this guy, even “sell” me!
