When He Xing realized that he didn’t get any response after making several calls, he became aware of the seriousness of the situation.

Unable to suppress his impatience, he frowned and stared at Gu Jingxu, who was sitting with his head down. “What are you thinking? What’s wrong with your brain?”

He was utterly puzzled, “I… can’t believe it…”

Swallowing his curse words, he reopened the computer in front of Gu Jingxu, and the surveillance footage began to play again.

The girl entered the hotel in the pouring rain, her expression showing a sense of urgency. Upon reaching the banquet scene, she seemed to be searching for someone, looking around anxiously. Finally, her gaze settled on the two figures in the center of the hall.

After a moment, a teardrop fell from the girl’s eyes.

He Xing angrily paused the video, and the curses were on the tip of his tongue. He took a deep breath, saying, “Are you using her as a substitute? Are your eyes really okay? A substitute for Lin Xi… I can’t believe you… If Lin Xi didn’t come to cooperate with you, you would have forgotten who she was ages ago, right?! Gu Jingxu, you’re really stupid.”

Gu Jingxu tightly pressed his lips together, his hands clenched with visible veins. He remained silent, letting He Xing scold him.

After scolding him for a while, He Xing also fell silent.

“Okay, let’s not talk about this for now. The problem is, how did she find out about being a substitute? Or did she know from the beginning… Damn, she must have known, and you two even signed that ridiculous contract!”

He Xing, for the first time in many years, felt that his good friend was irredeemably foolish.

“Can you tell me what’s going on in your mind? Open your eyes and see if there’s any resemblance between them?!”

He Xing’s throat was smoking from all the cursing, and Gu Jingxu finally hoarsely said, “I… don’t know.”

At that time, he didn’t know that he liked Chi You.

He just wanted her to stay by his side.

Half an hour ago, at the moment he saw the surveillance footage, he just wanted to rush to Chi You and hold her immediately.

But… Chi You didn’t want him.

She knew.

She knew how foolish he was.

She knew he wasn’t the person she liked.

He couldn’t figure out what was in her mind.

So, she didn’t want to say a word to him.

Gu Jingxu’s eyes reddened, and the pain in his chest made it difficult for him to breathe.

The surveillance footage froze at the moment Chi You shed tears.

Gu Jingxu’s gaze was fixed on Chi You’s face.

Chi You didn’t distrust him.

She was just too disappointed in him.

Now, even he himself was deeply disappointed in himself.

Even if he had explained this matter to Chi You a bit earlier, just a bit earlier, all of that day’s events wouldn’t have happened.

Gu Jingxu’s eyes turned red, and he lowered his head, taking a deep breath.

He Xing was furious, but seeing him in this state, he couldn’t help but sigh.

He Xing knew Gu Jingxu too well.

Even in eight lifetimes, he couldn’t imagine Gu Jingxu doing something like playing both sides. When they signed the contract, it was clear that he didn’t understand the situation and was just desperate to keep Chi You.

Now, faced with the current situation, He Xing didn’t know what to say.

He sighed several times, suppressing the urge to scold Gu Jingxu, and asked, “Quickly think if there’s anything that can convince Chi You, meet her, and explain everything. Resolve the situation.”

Gu Jingxu remained silent for a moment before slowly lifting his head. His eyes were deep, with a hint of redness, and after a pause, he said, “My face.”

“She likes my face.”

He Xing: “…………”

A week later in Country S.

The black iron gate of the mansion slowly opened, and a red convertible drove in. It stopped in front of the main entrance, and the eagerly awaiting butler immediately approached.

The car door opened, and a stylish and beautiful lady stepped out. After handing the car keys to the butler, she asked, “Is Youyou at home?”

The butler nodded, “Miss is preparing afternoon tea for you.”

The beautiful lady’s eyes sparkled, and she walked into the villa, wearing high heels.

The estate had several villas of this caliber, but the entire He family lived in the old mansion.

In the kitchen on the first floor, the sound of an oven working softly echoed. The girl waiting patiently in front of the oven picked up a pair of gloves, her black hair falling to her waist. As her slender fingers entered the gloves, the oven made a “ding” sound, stopping.

Before the girl could react, there was a distinct sound of footsteps behind her.

A beautiful lady in high heels, with a slightly hurried pace, ran into the kitchen. Seeing Chi You, she immediately opened her arms and embraced her.

“Darling! I missed you so much after just one morning!”

The scent of an expensive perfume was fresh and light. Chi You, being hugged by Mrs.He, couldn’t help but show a helpless expression towards He Chenran, who had heard the commotion and came downstairs.

He Chenran stood by the door with his hands in his pockets, saying, “Mom, it’s only been a morning.”

Mrs. He’s eyes were bright, and she had no intention of separating from her daughter, even for a moment.

“Just a morning feels like a long time. Mom misses my darling so much.”

Chi You helplessly took off her gloves and gently patted Mrs. He’s back.

A few days ago, He Chenran brought Chi You to Country S.

On that evening, the He family held a welcome banquet for her.

Chi You got along well with them, gradually adapting to Mrs. He’s somewhat eccentric personality.

“Mom, the cookies are ready. I’ll take them out first.”

Mrs. He let go of her, smiling at Chi You as she took out the crispy cookies from the oven.
