Gu Wan was even playing the “this is our secret” game in front of her.
Gu Chu narrowed her eyes and was about to say something when Feng Jia came back from the phone call.
Mr. Gu also came in. He asked, “Chuchu, have you ordered?”
Gu Wan answered, “I’m waiting for you.”
Mr. Gu nodded and looked at Feng Jia. “The braised pork with preserved vegetables is good. Do you want to try it?”
Feng Jia replied warmly, “Sure.”
Mr. Gu ordered the dishes while chatting with Feng Jia. Mr. Gu was also a very talkative person. He could chat about anything. Feng Jia would occasionally reply to him, so it was not awkward.
Gu Chu was not interested in what they were saying. She lowered her head and swiped her phone. No one knew what she was looking at.
She suddenly remembered what he had just said about spraining her ankle.
That happened last autumn.
Feng Jia and his friends had invested in a resort villa. On the opening day, they went there to check it out.
The villa was close to the mountains. The scenery was excellent. It was a good place to hike and get some fresh air.
At that time, they were in high spirits. They had planned to watch the sunrise together the next day. That was why they had gotten up at three or four in the morning. However, they did not expect the mountain to be so high. They had walked for almost two hours and still had not arrived.
Gu Chu was about to give up, but when she looked up, she saw a ray of golden light rising from the horizon.
It could not be described with simple words. Without seeing it with one’s own eyes, it’s hard to imagine. Therefore, she wanted to hold on to the ray of light and ran up with all her might.
On the hillside, there were weeds growing everywhere. She was not paying attention, so she stepped on it and missed. Just like that, she sprained her foot.
When they went down the mountain, Feng Jia carried her on his back.
Gu Chu still remembered the warm wind that day. The sunlight shone through the mottled leaves and dripped onto his face. Even the air was filled with the scent of fresh herbs. She leaned on his shoulder, seeing a small mole behind his ear and fell asleep.
When they reached the foot of the mountain, he found that she had fallen asleep. He carried her on his back all the way to her room.
When she woke up, she smiled at Feng Jia. “So you are quite lovable when you’re affectionate.”
Gu Chu’s chest felt a little stuffy when she thought of this. She realized that she was not only lustful towards him, she had unknowingly fallen in love.
But what about Feng Jia?
It seemed to be just lust.
He was never moved.
Gu Chu didn’t like to become so fragile. The more she thought about it, the colder the expression on her face became.
At this moment, Mr. Gu noticed that she hadn’t opened her mouth, so he said, “Chuchu, why aren’t you talking to Feng Jia? Did you have a fight?”
Gu Chu said lazily, “I saw that you guys were having a good chat, so I didn’t want to disturb you.”
Mr. Gu looked at her with some displeasedly. The Feng Corporation just got a share of the project this time, so why are you still quarreling with him?
Gu Chu said helplessly, “Alright, I’ll talk to him.”
Although she said that, she thought in her heart, “What is there to talk about between us? Besides, didn’t he have something to talk to Gu Wan in private? Why didn’t he talk to her?”
She looked up at Feng Jia and asked directly, “Why did the Feng Corporation invest in Wang Tai Group?”
Then, she added, “I thought you just wanted to work with them”
Feng Jia looked at her and didn’t say anything.
He didn’t answer.
This angered Gu Chu again.
Bastard, you won’t speak, right? Then don’t ever speak!
What’s so great about it!
Feng Jia saw that her eyes were filled with anger, then, he said unhurriedly, “Wang Tai Group previously claimed that they had sufficient funds and that the Yangchang project did not require any investment. But now that they suddenly want to cooperate with the Feng Corporation, people will definitely guessed that they are short of funds.”
When Gu Chu heard that, she immediately understood, “The injection of funds can be seen as the Feng Corporation being optimistic about Wang Tai Group’s future development. This way, the Feng Corporation and Wang Tai Group’s stock prices will continue to rise, and the Feng Corporation will also be able to participate in the Yangchang project. Wang Tai Group will still be able to tide over the financial crisis and kill three birds with one stone.”
Feng Jia nodded in satisfaction, “Mm.”
Gu Chu snorted, “You’re so shrewd.”
When the waiter served the dishes, Gu Wan interrupted their conversation. “Dad, Mr. Feng, Chuchu, hurry up and eat.”
Mr. Gu also sensed that there was something wrong with the atmosphere between them, so he said to her, “Chuchu, give Feng Jia a bowl of soup.”
Gu Chu pursed her lips and picked up the spoon, wanting to serve him the soup.
However, a hand reached for the spoon before her. “I’ll do it.”
