“Miss Xiao, I am running out of patience.”
“I am sorry, no comment.” Xiao Yaojing stared at Gu Juexi.
“Miss Xiao, I won’t repeat my words the third time. Wen Tao, call Zhuo Sheng Bank and tell them that their staff has offended me.” He was still holding the phone in his hand.
“Mr. Gu, this will upset Mrs. Gu.” PA Wen felt that he should stop him from playing with fire. Or else, Mrs. Gu would retaliate.
“Call now.” His tone was indifferent.
‘Just go ahead. I shall wait and see the day you get hurt playing with fire.’ PA Wen took out his phone.
Gu Juexi was still staring at Xiao Yaojing, waiting for her to respond.
“The rumor is true. Mr. Gu is extremely despicable.” Xiao Yaojing suddenly smiled.
“I just need the answer. I do not care about the process.” Gu Juexi answered coolly.
“What would you do after this? Inform the media and let them tell the public that Mrs. Gu did such a foolish thing for Mr. Gu?” Xiao Yaojing sneered.
Gu Juexi furrowed his brow.
PA Wen was presently covered in cold sweat. ‘Miss Xiao, you are really brave.’
“Well, Ye Yuwei really has no sense of shame falling for someone beyond her reach, falling into such a sorry state and being attacked by the media. She asked for all these.”
“Are you waiting for me to call HR that is paying your wages?” Restraining his anger, Gu Juexi stared coldly at PA Wen.
PA Wen trembled and hurriedly called Zhuo Sheng Bank. Xiao Yaojing was sacked right after the call. Hanging up her phone, her hands were still shaking as she watched the man in the car.
“Mr. Gu’s dictatorship is truly eye-opening. You may leave now. I will never sell her out. That is her last piece of dignity.”
Gu Juexi was puzzled. What had Ye Yuwei actually done, even an ex-friend was still siding her? PA Wen’s back was wet through, soaked in sweat. ‘Mrs. Gu’s friend is not inferior to her.’
“That is great.” Gu Juexi rolled up the window and instructed PA Wen to leave.
Watching the car leave, Xiao Yaojing loosened her fists. She could not help but laugh at herself—what was she after to offend the most powerful person in B City for a friend that was no more?
In the car, PA Wen drove carefully while looking at Gu Juexi who was still staring at the notebook.
“I thought you said they are no longer friends?” Gu Jue suddenly asked.
“That is true,” PA Wen wiped off his sweat as he answered.
‘But they broke up because of you. You are their common enemy!’ Unfortunately, PA Wen dared not say this.
“Ye Yuwei is truly something. She is capable of making many people take her side.”
Gu Juexi fiddled with the notebook. But suddenly, he threw it to the front of the car. The notebook hit the windshield and bounced off.
PA Wen shivered again. How he wished he could apply for leave now. Recently, Mr. Gu’s mood swings were worse than a woman having a period.
“Pick it up!” Gu Juexi was burning in rage, like a woman reaching an early menopause.
