Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 763
Chapter 763: He’s That Ugly Thing
Qiao Xi heaved a sigh of relief, and the corners of her mouth curled into an enormous smile.
Song Shiyu: “?” The president treated them differently!
Gu Zheng asked casually, “Xi Xi, you went to sign your name just now?”
Qiao Xi nodded, but she was slightly puzzled as to how Gu Zheng knew that the participants needed to sign their names. However, when she thought about it carefully, it was not strange. With Gu Zheng’s identity, what did he not know? Even her identity as Han Yin had been exposed!
After that, the two of them went to the exhibition area to admire the paintings. However, Qiao Xi kept looking around as if she was waiting for someone.
“Didn’t you say he would come today? Where is he?” Qiao Xi muttered to herself.
Gu Zheng smiled meaningfully. “Who are you waiting for?”
Qiao Xi said directly, “Han Ye, of course! When I went to sign my name earlier, the person in charge insisted that Han Ye and I were master and apprentice. He even said that Han Ye would come and I should be very clear about it, but I don’t know anything at all! I only chose this name back then because I admired Han Ye. He doesn’t know me at all!
“Everyone has misunderstood me. If Han Ye finds out, he’ll think that I’m trying to ride on his coattails! When we meet, I must explain myself.”
As soon as she finished speaking, Song Shijing walked over. “President, Young Madam, he’s here.”
Gu Zheng’s eyes darkened. “I expected that.”
Qiao Xi knew that Song Shijing was referring to Lu Yan, so she snorted. “Lu Yan is here to see if Han Ye will appear and if it’ll affect the launch of his perfumes?”
Gu Zheng nodded and said softly, “I’ll go over first. Wait for me here.”
In the lounge.
Gu Zheng and Lu Yan sat opposite each other. The air seemed to have frozen.
Gu Zheng lowered his eyes and did not even bother to look at him.
Lu Yan spoke for a long time but was met with silence. His expression was extremely ugly.
Lu Yan was afraid that Gu Zheng would still hold a grudge against him for poaching Gu Corporation’s perfumers. He was afraid that Gu Zheng would do something that would affect the release of the new products, so he humbly came to ask for peace.
However, it was not as if he had nothing to gain from this art exhibition. At the very least, he was roughly sure that Han Ye had passed away because his work was being displayed but he had not arrived.
Lu Yan sized up the man in front of him. Gu Zheng remained silent. Not only that, but he was also sitting lazily on the sofa as if Lu Yan was not in this room at all.
Lu Yan originally thought that he was calm enough, but Gu Zheng could still easily arouse his anger. He finally could not take it anymore and gritted his teeth. “President Gu, what exactly are your intentions?”
“Lu Yan, your clothes are really ugly.” Gu Zheng suddenly said something unrelated. Then, he continued, “Lu Corporation’s branded clothes are too ugly. No wonder no one buys them.”
All these years, the sales of Lu Corporation’s brands had not been good. That was why Lu Yan was wearing his own brand’s clothes. He planned to advertise this brand, but he did not expect to be mocked by Gu Zheng.
He gritted his teeth and comforted himself in his heart. Since the sales of his branded clothes were not good, he could immediately take down all the clothes and release the new perfumes. He could guarantee that once the perfumes were released, they would definitely be sought after by everyone. At that time, what reason would Gu Zheng have to look down on him?
Before Lu Yan could retort, Gu Zheng stood up impatiently. “Maybe I care too much about my looks and can’t stand ugly things. Please don’t appear in front of me in the future, Mr. Lu.”
With that, Gu Zheng strode away, leaving Lu Yan alone with a gloomy face.
Wait! Gu Zheng said that he did not like ugly things and even told him to appear less in the future. Did Gu Zheng mean that he was that ugly thing?
Lu Yan was furious, but he had nowhere to vent his anger. Hence, he smashed the cup on the table angrily and changed his clothes.
On the other hand, Qiao Xi was still looking for Han Ye. Presumably, with Han Ye’s identity, he would not appear in the hall. He must have gone to the lounge a long time ago.
Hence, Qiao Xi went straight to the resting area. Unexpectedly, she did not see Han Ye but a few people she did not want to see.
At this moment, everyone was praising Cui Xian and Qi Zhong. After all, Cui Xian was old and could not stand and talk for a long time. Hence, he returned to the lounge, leaving Qi Zhong and Tang Ruge to talk with everyone.
