Chi You hadn’t noticed the part about the CP thing, considering it was just a small interview. The overall comments seemed positive, so she replied to Yang Qirou’s message. Remembering that Gu Jingxu mentioned making afternoon tea, she got up and walked out of the room.

In the next moment, she made eye contact with Gu Jingxu, who was silently standing on either side of the kitchen door for some unknown reason, along with He Xing.

Wearing an apron and holding a cake just out of the oven, Gu Jingxu: “.”

As for He Xing, he looked like a person visiting a friend’s house and unexpectedly saw him coming out of the kitchen in an apron, and then, with widened eyes, witnessed his daughter coming out of his friend’s bedroom.

He Xing: “……….!!!!!!”

A glass of water was placed in front of He Xing, and Chi You sat across from him, her voice filled with concern, “Director He, are you okay?”

He looked as if he might faint at any moment.

He Xing, coming back to his senses, weakly waved his hand, and after a while, his eyes regained focus.

Glancing at the youthful and beautiful Chi You in front of him, he then looked at his expressionless friend beside her.

After a moment of contemplation, he struggled to speak, “What’s the… relationship between you two?”

Gu Jingxu, with a deadpan expression, stared at him, saying, “Together.”

He Xing: “…………”

He almost fainted. These three words almost took his life. He wasn’t even twenty five yet, and he was already experiencing the feeling of his daughter bringing her future husband home.

And this future son-in-law happened to be his friend whom he had known for many years!

Who could endure this?!

After witnessing it with his own eyes today, He Xing, upon reflection, instantly understood everything.

The Gu family had investments in various industries, and they were involved in numerous TV dramas and films. Apart from Gu Jingxu, there were several renowned directors working on projects under their banner. He Xing had previously wondered why Gu Jingxu was particularly fond of visiting their drama sets.

Now, the truth was revealed.

Gu Jingxu wasn’t there to inspect work; he was there to win over He Xing’s daughter.

With this realization, He Xing suddenly felt a profound sense of guilt. His expression turned pitiful as he looked at Chi You, saying, “I’ve caused trouble for you…”

Chi You’s lips moved slightly, but before she could speak, He Xing’s face instantly changed, and he glared angrily at Gu Jingxu. “How dare you?! Do you know how young she is?!”

Gu Jingxu’s eyes flickered slightly, and there was a momentary furrow in his brow, but he blinked and remained silent.

Chi You suddenly spoke in a soft voice, “Director He, he’s only five years older than me.”

Gu Jingxu, in a position of Translatority, exuded a strong presence, giving off an aura of someone much older. This, combined with his high status, caused everyone to automatically assume he was much older than he actually was.

In fact, he was only twenty seven that year, but his frequent dealings with various company executives made people think he was of the same age as those bald-headed bosses.

Every time Gu Corporation hired new employees, they were surprised at how well the CEO maintained himself.

After Chi You’s remark, He Xing paused.

He sighed softly.

Age was just a number.

Having spent several months with Chi You on the drama set, he knew what kind of person she was. He also knew his good friend well, and if Chi You was unwilling, Gu Jingxu would never force her.

Apart from the initial scene that raised his blood pressure, after sitting down and calmly reflecting, he realized that it was not a bad thing for them to be together.

At least, it was beneficial for Chi You.

After consoling himself, he opened his eyes to see Gu Jingxu handing a cake over to Chi You.

He looked up, saying, “What about mine?”

Having known each other for so many years, he had never eaten anything personally made by Gu Jingxu.

Gu Jingxu said in a voice that was neither cold nor indifferent, “Didn’t prepare one for you.”

He spoke the truth. Considering Chi You’s small appetite, he didn’t want to make too much for afternoon tea, fearing it might affect her dinner. The small piece of cake he made was just enough for her.

But to He Xing’s ears, these words meant that Gu Jingxu didn’t want to share with him.

He Xing instantly felt defeated, stood up, and ran out, shouting, “I won’t agree to this marriage!”

Even as he ran, he gently closed the door. Gu Jingxu didn’t bother lifting his head and went to the fridge to get a glass of milk for Chi You.

The girl sat on the sofa obediently eating cake. After watching her for a while, he softly asked, “I’m five years older than you. Does that bother you?”

To some extent, he knew that people of Chi You’s age preferred to socialize with peers. When she interacted with the second male lead on set, she seemed very happy.

Chi You didn’t remind him that they were still in a sugar daddy relationship, even though those two contracts seemed to have disappeared.

She had noticed the slight discomfort in Gu Jingxu’s expression when He Xing mentioned their age.

Did Gu Jingxu actually care about this?

Her eyes flickered for a moment, and she fed a bite of cake to Gu Jingxu. Watching him obediently open his mouth and eat, she said, “If I minded, I wouldn’t have agreed from the beginning.”

The man’s broad hand was gently patted twice by the girl. Both had fair and matching skin tones, their fingers looking harmonious when intertwined.

Gu Jingxu’s heart skipped a beat.

Subconsciously, he looked at Chi You’s face, but the girl showed no particular expression. She simply said, “If you care a lot, you can tell me. I’m very open to communication.”

Finishing the last bite of the cake, she turned her head to look at Gu Jingxu, her expression soft and, for some reason, with a hint of amusement. “No reaction? Did I say something wrong?”
