He Xing scratched his head, saying, “Isn’t she an actress? Why is she developing a new project?”

Gu Jingxu didn’t even blink as he said, “I don’t know.”

“She came to you for collaboration, and you didn’t ask anything?”

“It’s none of my concern.”

The proposal sent by Lin Xi was far from requiring him to delve into so much information.

He Xing was taken aback, then saw a rare thoughtful expression on Gu Jingxu’s face.

“What’s wrong?”

Gu Jingxu’s lips twitched slightly. He glanced at Chi You, who was sitting with a smile in the crowd, saying, “Nothing.”

He paused and added, “I seem to… like Youyuo.”

He Xing: “…”

He was just asking for unnecessary trouble.

“Go play around if you have nothing to do. Don’t affect my mood here.”

He Xing picked up his phone to filter the cake for another Weibo post.

Left alone, Gu Jingxu, surrounded by several actors under Gu Corporation, sat holding a glass. His deep eyes lowered, and even in the most secluded corner, he exuded a strong presence.

In the intervals of conversation between Chi You and Bo Yihong, she turned her head and glanced at Gu Jingxu.

Bo Yihong also noticed her gaze, followed her glance, and whispered, “How about you two leave first? I can cover for you.”

He felt like Gu Jingxu seemed a bit uncomfortable.

Chi You shook her head, saying “It’s Director He’s birthday; he won’t leave early.”

Bo Yihong murmured, “I didn’t expect President Gu to be quite friendly with friends…”

Slightly raising her eyes again towards Gu Jingxu’s direction, Chi You sat in the center of the venue. The bar table was slightly elevated, and she lifted her hand to support her chin, listening to Bo Yihong and the male actor on the other side talking.

The birthday star, surrounded by his cake, refused to leave even half a step. There were one or two of his friends sitting beside him, making Gu Jingxu appear even more lonely.

Amidst the noisy surroundings, he had been sitting there for almost half an hour, beside He Xing, without talking to anyone else.

Did Gu Jingxu have no friends?

Since being with him, it seemed like she hadn’t seen him interact with others of his age. Every day, he encountered only middle-aged people who were approaching baldness.

Even with He Chenran, who had a similar background to his family, they had only met a few times.

The glass in Gu Jingxu’s hand slightly trembled.

He didn’t like to drink, but at this moment, the small amount of alcohol seemed to temporarily keep his mind clear.

Otherwise, he might have stood up to hug Chi You.

In the time it took to finish a glass of alcohol, he mentally refuted what Assistant Wang had told him earlier.

He liked Chi You.

Without any complicated emotions or a so-called substitute for love.

He simply, genuinely liked Chi You.

His chest was filled with this swelling emotion. After a while, he took a deep breath, intending to put down the glass when suddenly a slender and fair wrist appeared in front of him.

The man’s eyes lifted slightly, and the beautiful long dress of the girl came into view.

With dark hair partially falling over her chest, Chi You placed the delicate plate of desserts she held in her hand in front of Gu Jingxu.

“Haven’t eaten anything? Have a bite.”

During this time, under Chi You’s care, his diet had become healthier. Although it wasn’t mealtime, he was actually a bit hungry.

However, he didn’t immediately take it but subconsciously looked around.

They… were being observed.

Many pairs of eyes were looking in their direction, curious to see if the seemingly difficult-to-get-along-with CEO of Gu Corporation would accept the snack from the new employee.

The man’s jaw tightened slightly, and he slowly put down his glass, reaching for the dessert in Chi You’s hand.

Feeling the intensified gaze, Gu Jingxu furrowed his brows slightly. He was about to look around to assess the situation when he saw Chi You calmly sitting beside him.

He turned his head towards her, asking, “Do you want to sit here?”

Chi You nodded, and with a slight movement of her chin, she instructed him, “Get me a glass of juice.”

Gu Jingxu raised his hand to get her a glass, watching as she took a sip. Then, she turned to him, “Mr. Gu, why are you staring at me like that? I know I’m pretty, but this might lead to misunderstandings.”

There were several people around them, not all from the entertainment industry, but they knew Chi You and Gu Jingxu’s identities. Hearing their conversation, they couldn’t help but feel that Chi You’s words weren’t really suspicious.

It felt more like… Gu Jingxu might indeed have some feelings for her.

Those people were surprised by their own thoughts but couldn’t resist stealing glances at them.

The man was tall and handsome, and the girl was delicate and beautiful. Even if one ignored their statuses, they were a conspicuous presence at the event.

Gu Jingxu was momentarily choked by Chi You’s words. He couldn’t fathom Chi You’s thoughts, and in such a situation, he wouldn’t just reach for her hand…

If only he could.

The man’s indifferent and emotionless gaze lingered for a moment on the girl’s wrist before returning to the dessert in front of him.

Chi You, who handed him the food, would definitely be watching him eat.

The corners of Gu Jingxu’s lips lifted imperceptibly for a moment, and he took a bite of the desert.

The next morning after receiving a two-hour lecture from the CEO in the office regarding his feelings towards Chi You, the moment Assistant Wang walked out of the top-floor office, he still felt a bit dazed.

Although, during this time, through observing the daily interactions between the boss and Miss Chi, he could sense something. But hearing the boss, who had been indifferent and lacked emotional intelligence for many years, openly saying that he liked Chi You…

At that moment, Assistant Wang still found the world truly strange.

Even more strangely, an hour later, the boss asked him to prepare a car to pick up an engagement ring.

Assistant Wang: “…”

Did he wake up on the wrong side of the bed today?
