Under the signal of Qi Han’s strong desire to survive, he went into the conference room, and the company’s top management also left one after another.
Only Luo Xiu, Gu Nian, and Zheng Haolei were left outside near the secretary’s desk.
Gu Nian listened with pricked ears, and heard as two or three elevators over the elevator hall carried the group of people down, and then she let go of the tight strings of her heart a little.
Turning her attention back, Gu Nian raised her gaze, moved it up that expensive and delicate tie, skimmed over the top-buttoned shirt, and finally stopped on that clear face.
Gu Nian paused: “Boss Luo?”
The man lowered his eyes and smiled wryly: “It’s Luo Xiu, your boyfriend Luo Xiu.”
Gu Nian’s eyelashes twitched, but soon she lowered her eyes and her tone was flat: “I don’t remember knowing someone of the level of the boss of BH media.”
Luo Xiu sighed softly, “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have kept it from you.”
“I don’t like concealing and deceiving.” Gu Nian frowned, and the last sentence became very quiet, as if she was complaining about him, “But I like you.”
Luo Xiu was taken aback.
Gu Nian quickly came back to her senses, then with a serious expression on her face, she looked up at Luo Xiu: “I’m in a mess right now, in order to prevent me from saying anything in this chaos that might hurt you or our relationship, I’m going to go back and calm down.”
Luo Xiu regained his senses, leaned over and hugged the little girl in front of him.
Gu Nian was taken aback by the embrace, and the seriousness on her face almost collapsed. She struggled quickly: “Okay, don’t try to shake me, I haven’t considered calmly thinking about it yet.”
Luo Xiu buried his head next to her neck, and chuckled softly, “I didn’t shake you, I just wanted to hug you—I was worried that you would ignore me and walk away.”
With a sullen face, Gu Nian muttered, “That won’t work. I just signed a ‘deed of sale’ with your company this morning. If I leave, I will be arrested.”
“Yes, I don’t want you to go,” Luo Xiu turned his head and gently kissed the tip of the girl’s ear through the girl’s soft mid-length hair, “It doesn’t matter how long you need to calm down and want to see me, but even if you leave, I will catch you back and lock you in a little black room.”
Gu Nian: “…”
Gu Nian: “?”
What about the baby goose who was a gentle, kind and pure angel? Why were the feathers of her angel goose black?
Even though Luo Xiu was reluctant to let her go, he finally restrained himself from holding her, and watched the little screenwriter in the room slip away quickly from under his nose.
She didn’t look back, she was just so heartless.
Luo Xiu stood at the same place, clenched his fist and let go, let go and clenched again, and went back and forth like this several times, finally suppressing the urge to catch up little by little.
Putting on a gentle mask again, Luo Xiu raised his eyes coldly, and turned to Zheng Haolei who was leaning on the front desk and smirking.
“It’s a pity,” Zheng Haolei smiled, straightened up and walked over, “I thought that with Miss Gu’s personality which does not allow even a grain of sand in her eyes, even if it’s not compared to her dislike for me back then, at least she would have broken up with Mr. Luo.”
Luo Xiu pulled the corner of his lower lip lightly, and said with a gentle and contemptuous smile, “Does Mr. Zheng know why?”
Zheng Haolei smirked: “I would like to hear the details.”
Luo Xiu lowered his eyes and said in a low voice, “Because you are not me.”
Zheng Haolei’s expression froze immediately, and he struggled with a bit of coldness, but he could not bear it.
After the stalemate, Zheng Haolei laughed loudly: “That’s right, I don’t have such good luck as Mr. Luo. But people who have dealt with you say that no one can beat you——but today I saw that’s not the case, is it?”
Under Zheng Haolei’s gaze, Luo Xiu didn’t show the slightest anger that he thought he would have, but the man just took off his glasses slowly, and smiled softly while lowering his eyes to wipe them.
“Luck? It has nothing to do with luck that you could get together with her…I planned it.”
Zheng Haolei sneered: “Mr. Luo, have you become angry from embarrassment?”
“Do you really think that you plotted against me?”
“Why, didn’t I?”
“Where are you now?”
Under Zheng Haolei’s slightly dazed expression, Luo Xiu put back his glasses and smiled softly and indifferently: “This is BH media, not your territory. You can’t even leave this building without my consent, but you think you can plot against me here?”
Every time Luo Xiu said a word, Zheng Haolei’s face darkened.
Because these words were so familiar that his temples twitched.
[This is BH media here, and this is not my territory—— If your boss disagrees, I shouldn’t even want to go out. Is Ms. Gu still worried that I can do bad things here?]
Zheng Haolei gritted his teeth: “How do you know…”
A voice suddenly interrupted Zheng Haolei’s words from behind.
Zheng Haolei turned around suddenly, and it was someone else who he had seen before, that was, the stunned office worker who was wearing a cheap suit and had rushed into the elevator saying that he was in a hurry.
However, he seemed different from that moment. At this time, the young man’s expression was consciously calm, without the slightest bit of panic he had shown just now.
Sensing Zheng Haolei stare at him, the young man even raised his head and showed Zheng Haolei a kind smile with a small dimple in a very harmless way.
Zheng Haolei clenched his fists crackling.
After a long while, he turned back with an ugly expression: “So you knew from the very beginning that I had an appointment with Gu Nian?”
Luo Xiu smiled gently, but the temperature in his eyes was as cold as ice.
For a while, because of Gu Nian’s departure, he was in a bad mood, and those bad roots that he had buried deeply were let out with connivance, making him want to torture anyone he wanted to.
For example, Zheng Haolei.
Zheng Haolei gritted his teeth: “Why so early?”
“Mr. Zheng thinks that you really luckily heard that she would come to BH to sign a contract today?”
“!” Zheng Haolei’s eyes exploded: “Could it be you… You are not afraid that something will happen to her if I ask her to meet?”
Luo Xiu didn’t speak and just rolled his pupils behind his eyes.
The young man standing obediently raised his hand: “Sanda, judo, taekwondo, karate, unarmed combat – I know a little bit of all of it. If you dare to say anything else, Mr. Zheng would have lost consciousness within three seconds, handling such a small matter is nothing difficult for me.”
Zheng Haolei’s expression twisted.
Luo Xiu lowered his eyes lazily, and his voice was also contemptuous and lazy: “Thank you Mr. Zheng for your cooperation, without you showing up with such a poor image and exposing my identity, Nian Nian might be even more…”
Even if the expected situation didn’t happen, Luo Xiu’s eyes still darkened.
Zheng Haolei finally came back to his senses after being furious, and smiled coldly: “If Gu Nian gets to know what kind of person you really are, will she still choose you?”
Luo Xiu raised his eyes lightly: “She will know.”
Zheng Haolei: “I know it. Mr. Luo is worthy of being Mr. Luo. He is scheming people’s hearts to a terrifying degree. How can Gu Nian beat you?”
Luo Xiu: “I will tell her.”
Zheng Haolei was taken aback.
“I will tell her what a gloomy, indifferent, and selective person I am. In the days to come, I will cut myself open for her to see bit by bit.”
Luo Xiu’s eyes were calm and peaceful.
“I won’t hide myself from her, and I won’t leave any possible disaster between us—something which has nothing to do with Mr. Zheng, remember what I said?”
“?” Zheng Haolei returned to his senses.
Luo Xiu raised his eyes and smiled softly: “Because you are not worthy.”
Having been crushed out of the last bit of joy of his successful revenge, Zheng Haolei’s pent-up anger finally burst out, and he couldn’t bear it anymore, so he stepped forward and grabbed Luo Xiu’s tie, clenched his hand into a fist and was about to swing it down.
The young man behind the room withdrew his smile, then his eyes sharpened and he was about to step forward.
Luo Xiu put his hands in his trouser pockets and didn’t respond at all, but he glanced at him from the corner of his eye when he noticed the young man’s movements.
The young man stopped suddenly.
The glance not only stopped the young man, but also made Zheng Haolei, who was punching, stop his hand abruptly. Thinking of something, the young man looked back towards the exit of the elevator where the two were standing opposite each other.
There a 270-degree wide-angle camera flashed with faint red dots, like the eyes of a ghost.
Zheng Haolei shuddered suddenly.
After returning to his senses, he let go of his hand, took two steps back and his face was livid: “You still want to frame me, you think I will be fooled twice?!”
Luo Xiu lowered his eyes regretfully. Then he raised his wrist, lowered his eyes and adjusted his tie and cuffs, and then laughed softly: “I’m in a good mood, and the more I think about it, the more I feel that the price that Mr. Zheng has to pay is not enough. It turned out that I acted too hastily, sorry.”
Zheng Haolei stared at Luo Xiu with fright and fear in his eyes. At this moment, in his eyes, this handsome man was more like a ghost in painted skin.
He clenched his fists and froze for two seconds, then he turned and left without turning his head again.
Luo Xiu adjusted his tie slowly, turned around without emotion, and walked towards the office.
Qi Han, who had been shrinking as much as possible in the corner, witnessed the whole process, and stepped forward cautiously: “Mr. Luo, it is not difficult for you to move Dingke and Zheng Haolei again, there is really no need to risk yourself.”
“Well, it’s just a temporary idea…. The price paid is still too small.”
Qi Han smiled awkwardly: “The hole you dug for Zheng Haolei was enough to hurt him for a year or two, so it’s not too small.”
The shiny black leather shoes stopped silently on the soft carpet, then Luo Xiu looked back at Qi Han.
Qi Han thought he had said something wrong, so he was about to change his words.
Luo Xiu: “It’s not him, it’s me.”
Luo Xiu sighed softly, seemingly helpless: “Nian Nian is too soft-hearted.”
Qi Han froze in place dumbfounded.
After the figure disappeared around the corner, he came back to his senses in a jerk, shook his head and muttered: “Crazy, crazy, or completely crazy.”
“Special Assistant Qi.” The young man waiting at the front desk ran over without any hesitation.
Qi Han turned around: “Huh? Why didn’t you leave?”
“I heard something on the rooftop, but I didn’t dare to report it directly to Mr. Luo, so I wanted to ask you first.”
The young man looked around and whispered something in his ear.
Qi Han’s expression was terrified, and he turned back so much that he almost twisted his neck: “Really?!”
“It is true.”
“…Okay, fortunately, you did the right thing. At this time, you must never mention it to Mr. Luo.”
“Really?” The young man scratched his head hesitantly.
“You can’t mention it, you can’t even mention it now,” Qi Han pointed to the corner, and lowered his voice in fear, “You haven’t seen Mr. Luo’s current mental state-cough, oh, mental state, you think about it, if you had mentioned it now, wouldn’t something terrible have happened?”
The young man was dazed for a while, and asked, “Will it? I’ve been with Mr. Luo for a while, and I think he is quite nice.”
Qi Han resisted the urge to sigh: “Mr. Luo may have had a bit of humanity before, but now I don’t think there is much.”
“Let me give you an analogy,” Qi Han frowned, “Have you heard of Western fairy tales? Mr. Luo used to be the devil sealed in a bottle. Although he was a bit scary, he didn’t care too much about it, so his getting angry was within the controllable range.”
“What about now?”
“Now?” Qi Han rubbed his arms, “Miss Gu tore off the seal on the bottle, and the devil has been completely released.”
The young man was stunned for a while: “Aren’t we going to suffer in the future?”
“After a while, it will be fine.”
After Qi Han turned the corner, he walked into the elevator room. Then turning around, he smiled.
“Whoever releases the devil, he will listen to whoever it is.”
