Gu Anxin’s face suddenly changed color. After listening to Ling Yue say the insulting words in an understatement, then coldly turn around, sit in the wheelchair, open the door and leave, Gu Anxin felt that her mind went blank.

Her heart hurt, her throat hurt, and the headache that she originally had due to lack of sleep didn’t seem so painful at this moment.

Third brother, the third brother she liked so much, didn’t he understand that by looking down on her colleagues and friends, he was despising her?

Gu Anxin looked at the bag that was still at the door, thinking that she didn’t even have dinner yesterday and was searching for clothes just to match his suit, and smiled bitterly.

Compared with the coldness and inhumanity of her third brother, she seemed to be stupid and a little too talented.

Maybe the third brother didn’t like her as much as she thought.

Gu Anxin examined the relationship between the two for the first time. She picked him up because of a life-saving grace given by Aunt Bai. No matter whether he was mute or lame, she never despised him. Even though her life was not rich, she still gave him a lot of help. He paid her back for the medical expenses, and even though the two of them fell in love with each other later, he was still a mystery to her.

She was a blank sheet of paper in front of him, but he built a thick wall in front of her.

Sometimes, the distance between two people was not because of lack of trust, but because of lack of honesty.

Gu Anxin raised her hand to wipe away the tears she shed, “Third brother, how long will my love for you be enough for you to be able to fully trust me and be completely honest with me?”

The first time he left without saying goodbye, the time he came back without being honest, this time she felt naked contempt…

Gu Anxin felt that she had been a little shy ever since she started dating. A look of disapproval or an expression of indifference and disdain from her third brother would make her frightened and cautious.

The girl who acted cruelly and arrogantly in the cell, the girl who would not bow to others even when her life was in embarrassment, seemed to have disappeared a long time ago.

Maybe it was not that the third brother didn’t do well, but that she was too worried about gains and losses, right?

The best thing about Gu Anxin was that after being unhappy with someone, she would reflect on herself immediately, and after reflecting, she would feel much better.

But it was obvious that this time it didn’t seem to work.

Gu Anxin saw that the time was coming and she put away her sadness. She liked her third brother, but she also had to have her own life.

She quickly rushed to the bathroom, changed her clothes, straightened her hair, and even put on a light makeup even though she didn’t like makeup.

Due to lack of sleep, her complexion was not good, and she still had thick dark circles under her eyes, but after applying makeup like this, she felt much more energetic.

After carrying her bag, Gu Anxin went out.


Gu Anxin turned around and saw Tang Meng, “You have no classes at this time? You are at home so early in the morning?”

Tang Meng looked at Gu Anxin in surprise and ignored her question, “I just came back from my internship and stayed at home last night. You…are you going to work?”

Gu Anxin raised her hand and patted her head, “What nonsense are you talking about? There is a wedding of one of my colleague today!”

Tang Meng approached her in a sly manner, “I heard from ‘grandma’ that your third brother became your boyfriend and moved in together with you.”

Tang Meng’s cohabitation before and after had different meanings. It used to be cohabitation, but now it was roommates.

Gu Anxin’s face froze slightly, “Grandma Tang is so old, but she is still such a gossip!”

“You don’t know this. Gossip is a woman’s nature, regardless of age.” Tang Meng smiled, “Sister Anxin, you have caught a big fish. Just look at the clothes the third brother wears. Knowing that he is a nouveau riche, you will not have to worry about food and drink in the future, but don’t forget me!”

When Gu Anxin was mentioned in this way by Tang Meng, she realized that some of her preconceived notions seemed wrong.

Separating from Tang Meng, Gu Anxin took a car to the company. When she arrived at the company, she couldn’t help but think about Tang Meng’s words.

Third brother was well-dressed and lived a sophisticated life. Although she had never seen the brand name on his clothes, she could tell from the quality that they were expensive.

There was also Alice’s respect for her third brother. On the contrary, Alice was a bit careless towards Xiao Yishan. Gu Anxin’s pupils shrank, unwilling to admit what she was thinking.

No, third brother was just an ordinary person, and third brother was most likely the son of Aunt Bai. Aunt Bai was affable and just an ordinary person. How could third brother have a special status?

Gu Anxin went from being sad to being scared, and Ling Yue felt equally uncomfortable there.

Ling Yue’s face turned dark and his expression was so dark that Xiao Yishan and Alice did not dare to go in and report the matter.

“What’s wrong with him? He came here so early in the morning with a dark face. Who messed with him?” Xiao Yishan hid in the corner cowardly.

Alice frowned and shook her head, “I went to pick up Mr. Gu in the morning, but she didn’t let me drop her off or let me in. I don’t know what happened!”

“Then that girl provoked him. It’s none of our business. Don’t be afraid!” He didn’t know whether he was comforting Alice or himself.

Alice looked at him with contempt, “Are you sure that sir won’t treat us as…, anger venting objects?”

Xiao Yishan was stunned and shook his head simply, “Not sure!”

Then he put all his documents in Alice’s hands more simply, “So, the important task is left to you. I have something else to do, so I’ll get out of the way first!”

Alice watched the irresponsible man run away and was so angry that her eyes almost popped out. In the end, she had no choice but to go in alone.

When she entered the door, she saw that Ling Yue had just finished reading the documents in front of him. He was facing the floor-to-ceiling window, his eyes were gloomy and his face was gloomy. Alice subconsciously shrank her neck, he was really angry.

The angrier Ling Yue got, the higher his work efficiency became. A day’s worth of documents could be completed in one morning. This was unbelievable!

“Sir, here…”

Ling Yue did not turn around, “Alice, I have sent the Lingtian Group’s hardware supply list to your email. It will be disintegrated within half a month!”

Alice was startled, was this going to be a huge blow to the Lingtian Group?

When the boss met with an accident and his life was unknown, he was not so cruel. “Sir, are you sure? We are now…”

To be honest, although they had captured the latest R&D project of Lingtian Group, they did not have the ability to fully take over Lingtian. Moreover, her boss had been working hard to take over Lingtian Group without damaging the vitality of Lingtian Group. However, if the supply chain was disconnected, the share price of Lingtian Group would definitely plummet.

“I can’t wait any longer!” Ling Yue lowered his head slightly, revealing the loneliness and desolation she had not seen for a long time.

Alice was startled. She had never seen her boss so decadent before. Even when she found her boss at Miss Gu’s home, he was sitting in a wheelchair, with a strong aura and confident and firm eyes. But now…

“Yes, sir, don’t worry!”

Waiting until Alice left the door, Ling Yue slowly raised his head. Was Anxin disappointed with him?

However, now was not the time for him to show his face.

He was in the dark, while Ling Fang and Ling Sheng were in the light. He could slowly plan, but if he showed up, all his existing chips may be taken away.

It was not that career and power were more important than peace of mind, but if he wanted to give his girl the best in the world, he must have career and power.
