Gu Yu remained silent for a long time and when Xu Weilai saw his inscrutable expression, tossed her phone aside and cosied up against him before she explained, “Big Boss and I have a perfectly normal superior-subordinate relationship.”
As Xu Weilai knew how possessive Gu Yu was, she initiated an explanation to avoid any unnecessary misunderstandings.
Gu Yu’s thoughts were interrupted by what she had said and when he came back to his senses, stared at her face. After he met her bright, jet black eyes and saw how sincere she was, he felt that she probably wasn’t hiding anything from him.
Thus, he beamed and assured, “Alright, I get it.”
Xu Weilai silently heaved a sigh of relief. As she had just experienced the incident with Yun Rou, she does not want to any unnecessary trouble to arise again.
However, what her boss had said earlier piqued her curiosity and, after a moment of hesitation, she could not help but ask, “By the way, did you obtain the two pieces of evidence presented in court through your investigation?”
The two pieces of evidence referred to the report about Yun Rou’s hand injury and the insurance policy that Yun Rou had bought for her hand.
That day, she was reluctant to part with Gu Yu and had held his hands in the prison cell. For a moment, it occurred to her that something might be fishy about Yun Rou’s hand. She kept having a nagging feeling that Yun Rou’s hand injury was too serious and the timing which it occurred was also too coincidental. It was almost as if she had planned it all out.
That was why she shared her suspicions with Gu Yu and asked him to look into it since it might be a breakthrough for the case.
Reality proved that her gut feeling was right and she was indeed acquitted as a result.
Gu Yu leaned lazily against the headboard of the bed and stretched out his long arms to grab Xu Weilai’s wrist before he pulled her right into his arms. Xu Weilai did not struggle and merely leaned against him.
Remaining as obedient as a cat, she allowed him to stroke her long, soft hair with his huge palms and gradually, his jealousy dissipated. When he was finally in a good mood, he replied, “Before I could get someone to look into this, the two pieces of evidence were delivered to me.”
Gu Yu could also get his hands on the same pieces of evidence as long he investigated the matter. But since the evidence was delivered to him directly, he was spared of the trouble and time. Subsequently, he instructed someone to verify and confirm the authenticity of the evidence before presenting it to the court.
“Oh?” Xu Weilai gasped and raised her head in surprised.
“So both pieces of evidence came from others?” she asked.
“It seems like one of them was indeed sent by my boss, but…what about the other one?” she ruminated.
“Yes, both were sent anonymously from different places. I didn’t find out the identity of the sender, but they were people who wanted to help you,” he said.
Gu Yu then gazed at her and pinched her chin gently with his slender fingers as he remarked, “Judging from how you’re suddenly asking about this, I’m assuming that one of the evidence was sent by your Big Boss. Xu Weilai, seems like there are many people who care about you, don’t you think?”
“He so sour…” she thought.
As she had gone through great lengths to appease him earlier on and does not want him to blow up again, she decided not to pursue the identity of the person who had sent over the other piece of evidence for the time being.
With an ingratiating smile, Xu Weilai quickly added on, “But you’re the one who cares about me the most. During this period of time, you’ve been shuttling between different places for my sake. Today, you also fought the lawsuit for me. I’m really touched.”
Gu Yu raised his eyebrows and replied, “Go on.”
“Go on?” Xu Weilai thought.
“What else could I say?” she mused.
After being stunned for a moment, she finally understood what he was implying.
He was indeed an evil capitalist who expected a corresponding reward for his efforts.
Xu Weilai pursed her lips tightly and took in a few deep breaths before she lowered her voice and uttered a few words.
