He Xing’s birthday was just three days after Qin Yi’s birthday.

When he received the message to join for dinner, Gu Jingxu suddenly realized that Chi You would also be attending He Xing’s birthday.

These days without Chi You were almost unbearable for him. So, after tidying himself up and even spraying some perfume before leaving, Gu Jingxu finally felt at ease getting into the car. He had already given He Xing his birthday gift last month.

At that time, he had set his eyes on a car, and Gu Jingxu had bought it for him.

As he arrived at He Xing’s house, he saw the car parked downstairs. He Xing had already come down to greet him, happily saying that he really liked it. For the sake of the car, he could temporarily forget about the issues between him and Chi You.

Gu Jingxu hesitated, “Did she… come?”

Before he could finish speaking, Bo Yihong called He Xing to hurry back.

Unlike Qin Yi’s birthday, He Xing’s birthday attracted a lot of people. He lived in an apartment with one unit per floor, otherwise, the crowd would disturb others.

Gu Jingxu’s words were interrupted, and he didn’t ask again. He and He Xing took the elevator together. Seeing a group of people inside the open door, he stopped and glanced inside.

He Xing didn’t notice his unease; he was busy composing a Weibo post.

[He Xing V: Oh, I told her not to, but she insisted on making me a cake herself, and @ChiYou cake is so delicious. Ah, the troubles of happiness! PS: I don’t want everyone to wish me a happy birthday, okay~]

The post included a nine-picture grid. The nine pictures from nine angles all showed the cake Chi You made for him.

[2L: Read, TD]

[2L: I know you have a daughter now (smile)]

[3L: Feeling dizzy, too lazy to read]

[5L: Who asked you to post? Who asked you about the maker of this cake?]

[6L: This person has been crazily reposting cake hints since Sister Yi’s birthday. It’s reasonable to suspect that Chi You was morally kidnapped by him.]

[5L: Upstairs, how dare you say that?]

He Xing’s fans always enjoy teasing him, with the repost section filled with peaceful birthday wishes, and the comment section full of fans engaging in various antics.

He Xing would never let rumors spread unchecked. He responded one by one. While he was typing, Gu Jingxu, who had been silent for a while, suddenly asked, “Is Ch You not here?”

He looked around but didn’t see Chi You.

He Xing raised his head, puzzled. “She has a magazine shoot today. She came to deliver the cake and left. Didn’t she tell you?”

Gu Jingxu lowered his gaze.

His whole demeanor radiated a sense of melancholy.

Seeing this, He Xing became curious. “What’s wrong? Did you two have a fight?”

Gu Jingxu replied, “No.”

He Xing teased, “Oh, still denying it? You’re the one with the hardest mouth from head to toe. What happened? Did my precious finally open her eyes and realize—”

As He Xing was teasing, he noticed Gu Jingxu’s expression change. Instantly, he became serious. “Is something really wrong?”

Gu Jingxu nodded in frustration.

Seeing his friend in this post-breakup state, He Xing couldn’t help but sigh.

Indeed, no matter what kind of person, they would change when it came to love.

He sighed softly, about to say something, when suddenly, from outside, Bao Yihong called, “Hey, Chi You, did you fish the magazine shoot?”

The girl’s voice wasn’t loud, but it landed clearly in Gu Jingxu’s ears, “Yeah, I was in a hurry to come back and eat the cake.”

Chi You spoke while approaching. When she saw the man sitting next to the birthday star, she naturally smiled, saying, “Boss, you’re here too.”

Her attitude was appropriate. To outsiders, this might just be an employee with a good relationship with the boss.

Gu Jingxu nodded slightly.

Chi Yuzu smiled, exchanged a few words with He Xing, then turned to the boss. “Boss, there’s something I’d like to talk to you about. It just so happens that I can mention it now?”

Gu Jingxu looked up. “Sure.”

Bo Yihong still sat next to He Xing and talked to him. He saw Chi You and Gu Jingxu walking out one after the other.

He looked at them in confusion, then turned his head and forgot about it.

Unnoticed by anyone, in a blind spot of the apartment surveillance, the girl held the hand of the man following behind her, tiptoed, and touched the corner of his mouth.

Gu Jingxu quickly supported her waist, saying, “Youyou.”

“I miss you so much.”

“It’s only been three days.”

“But I really miss you.”

Chi You smiled, “You’re so clingy.”

But she liked it very much.

In the second half of the birthday banquet, Chi You chatted with several actresses she knew from the crew.

Gu Jingxu and the birthday star sat by the cake. He watched He Xing taking dozens of pictures of the cake with his phone, a hint of envy appearing in his eyes.

Just then, Gu Jingxu’s phone vibrated. He opened it and glanced at the message from Lin Xi.

He briefly looked at the collaboration mentioned by Lin Xi, but the overall direction didn’t quite align with Gu’s philosophy, so he had already rejected it. However, she was persistent, modifying the collaboration proposal in an attempt to persuade him.

Seeing him handling work beside him, He Xing put his phone down and casually asked, “What urgent matter needs to be dealt with today?”

Gu Jingxu exited the document, locked his phone, then leaned back slightly. His tone was indifferent, “It’s about Lin Xi.”

“Lin Xi? What happened to her?”

Having known Gu Jingxu for so many years, He Xing naturally knew who Lin Xi was. However, since she went abroad with her parents years ago, they had hardly been in contact. Nearly twenty years had passed, so how could they suddenly reconnect?

Gu Jingxu replied, “She has a collaboration with a company and wants to develop a new project. However, there’s a lack of technical expertise, so she wants Gu Corporation’s help.”
