A person should not mourn the death of another for too long, so before dark, Gu Juexi had already returned to normal and set out to work on the acquisition of Gu International Catering.
Ye Yuwei thought that Gu Juexi was truly a god–though the doctor had firmly told him to rest, his brain could still analyse data so quickly.
He only needed to use his mouth–that was enough.
Gu International Catering had started in the nineteenth century and had been around for more than a hundred years—it really was a ‘century-old brand’.
PA Wen made several trips to the hospital daily, extremely busy dealing with the matter. Ye Yuwei could easily tell that PA Wen had lost weight.
When PA Wen came over in the afternoon, he was carrying a half-eaten sandwich in his hand. He entered the hospital ward in a hurry and once he reached Gu Juexi, he immediately switched on his laptop to give a report to Gu Juexi on his work.
Ye Yuwei remembered that PA Wen had once mentioned that in his lifetime, no matter how amazing the benefits he might be offered, he would never leave Gu Juexi. Some people might speculate why PA Wen stuck around, what with Gu Juexi’s terrible temper and him passing all the work to PA Wen.
However, what other people didn’t know was that all the skills and abilities that PA Wen currently had were taught to him by Gu Juexi.
Ye Yuwei had nothing to do besides listen to them, so she leaned back against the sofa, took out her mobile phone and snapped a picture of PA Wen standing by the bed and talking to Gu Juexi. She then forwarded the picture to Xiao Yaojing.
[Yezi: What did you see?
Yaojing: Your man.
Yezi: Where are you looking? It seems like PA Wen hasn’t had a good rest in a long time. When he came over just now, he had a half-eaten sandwich in his hand. He probably hasn’t even had dinner.
Yaojing: He didn’t even have lunch. When I spoke to him regarding the real estate issue this afternoon, he was in a meeting. The secretary told me that he hadn’t rested.
Yezi: Wow, you’re actually aware of it. Why didn’t you say anything to him?
Yaojing: What can I say? He probably won’t listen to me since he already has his college junior by his side. She’s so good, she even ordered lunch for him.]
Ye Yuwei raised her eyebrows; why did she sense a hint of jealousy in those words?
“At the moment, Gu International has placed all its manpower and resources in Gu International Catering’s chain stores and has been reducing its staff. Gu International Catering has a strong international reputation, if—”
“A few decades ago, when Gu International Catering was on the verge of bankruptcy, it was my mother’s shares that brought it back to life. How can they be so domineering? Go and negotiate with Gu Tianmu: purchase it at the original price or wait for it to become a thing of the past. Let Gu Tianmu make the choice,” Gu Juexi said quietly.
PA Wen paused for a moment, then turned to look at Ye Yuwei.
Ye Yuwei shook her head slightly, silently telling him that there was no other way–he had to follow Gu Juexi’s instructions.
The fact that Gu International could rise to such heights today was all due to Wen Jie’s shares that had saved it in the past, and this was precisely why Wen Jie no longer had any ties to her own family. In the end, it was a tragedy caused by money.
The reason Gu Juexi wanted to personally take ownership of Gu International Catering was because of his mother’s shares.
Hence, Ye Yuwei wasn’t capable of stopping him and neither would she attempt to do so.
“Very well then. I will contact Chairman Gu.” PA Wen closed the file of documents in his hand and bowed slightly. “I will go back now to contact Chairman Gu. Should CEO need further assistance, please contact me.”
Gu Juexi nodded. PA Wen then turned around, grabbed his half-eaten sandwich and proceeded to make his way out.
“PA Wen, if you are not in a hurry, please have a meal first,” Ye Yuwei suddenly said just as PA Wen was about to leave.
She said that to PA Wen on behalf of Xiao Yaojing. Though she was only an outsider, even she felt anxious watching the two of them.
