The flight landed at B City at nine in the morning. They looked at each other as they got down from the plane.
It was as though their life was transformed the minute they stepped foot into a different place.
And they did not like this life.
“CEO,” PA Wen greeted swiftly, “The party will start at 2 pm, you have five hours to spare.”
Gu Juexi walked out of the airport while holding Ye Yuwei’s hand. She had to increase her walking pace to match his speed.
Naturally, Gu Juexi was back in his instinctive commander’s character on his home ground.
After Gu Juexi and Ye Yuwei stepped into the car, PA Wen started the engine and inquired, “CEO, your destination please, home or the mall?”
“The mall,” Gu Juexi instructed. He tidied up his shirt sleeves, eyes sharp.
PA Wen stepped on the gas at the instruction. Five hours sounded like a long time but it looked like it would pass in the blink of an eye.
When they left the airport not more than ten minutes later, there was a massive traffic buildup ahead of them. PA Wen cursed under his breath. Gu Juexi switched on the LED TV that was installed in the passenger seat and watched the news. Apparently, there had been a chain collision on the road ahead. Although no serious injuries were reported, the accident had brought traffic to a standstill and it would take up to an hour to clear.
Gu Juexi frowned slightly and stared at the news, but the corner of his lips curled upward.
Ye Yuwei looked at her watch anxiously. It was 9.30 am now, and if they were going to be stuck in traffic for an hour, with another hour to reach the city, and even more time to dress up, then they were not going to make it in time for the party.
It was too late for them to turn around as the cars were starting to pile up behind them.
“CEO,” PA Wen urged in a concerned tone. They were racing against time at the moment and getting stuck in a traffic jam was not an option.
“You wait in the car. Go straight to the party venue when the traffic is clear,” Gu Juexi directed. He opened the car door and hopped out, taking Ye Yuwei with him.
“C—” PA Wen only managed to stare in shock when Gu Juexi disappeared into thin air with Ye Yuwei.
Meanwhile, in an unnamed apartment, Qiao Yi was sitting on the sofa, overlooking the traffic jam on the expressway.
“Mr. Qiao, Gu Juexi’s car is still stuck on the road,” reported Ah He, his secretary, after a call.
Qiao Yi nodded and commanded, “If Gu Juexi does not appear at the party by 1.30 pm, contact Sun to prepare for the buy-in of Gu Enterprise’s shares when their stock plummets in the evening.” He raised to his feet, glared at the massive traffic jam and sneered, “Gu Juexi, so what?”
Ah He nodded at the order and turned around to make a phone call.
Six years ago, Qian Feng Enterprise had hosted a retirement party for the old Mr. Qian which was also an informal ceremony to pass his seat to his son. However, his son’s ambition was to join the police and had no intention of inheriting the company at all. Rumor had it that the person appointed as Qian Feng Enterprise’s CEO was the son of Mr. Qian’s subordinate. He had just returned from studying this year and had been the acting CEO since the departure of Qian Yikun.
It seemed like Mr. Qian approved of him and his abilities, hence the hosting of this party to introduce this man to the world.
Xiao Yaojing arrived earlier to the party venue after getting a call from PA Wen. The attendees were not exclusively business tycoons, there were also a group of reporters, although they were there mainly for Gu Juexi and Ye Yuwei.
“I heard that Mr. Gu went to Shennongjia to nurse his injuries and that he hired Sam, the internationally renowned doctor yesterday. I guess Gu Enterprise is currently at stake and skating on thin ice.”
In the party, the attendees had started talking about Gu Juexi, which had been forcibly turned into the main agenda of the party today.
