“Just low blood sugar? His complexion looks terrible,” Mother Gu looked at the doctor with concern.

The doctor, with the typical appearance of an S Country native, glanced at the now-awake Gu Jingxu on the bed and nodded, “Mr. Gu needs to rest more. Also, it seems there are some issues with his diet. In any case, he should rest well for now. Once his body is in good condition, I will address his psychological problems.”

Worry crept into Mother Gu’s heart. “Psychological problems? What’s wrong with him?”

The doctor didn’t answer her question. Instead, he looked down at the silent Gu JingXu. “Perhaps you can get some rest first.”

Gu Jingxu’s body had reached its limit, but his mind remained clear. He closed his tired eyes, but sleep eluded him.

Back home, when He Xing couldn’t stand seeing him in such a state, he wanted to call Chi You, but Gu Jingxu stopped him.

He didn’t want her to see him like this.

After some time, and once he has adjusted, he’ll go to her no matter where she is.

Chi You hadn’t said she didn’t want him or that she didn’t like him anymore.

He still had a chance.

He still had a chance…

Holding onto this thought, Gu Jingxu finally fell into a deep sleep.

He seemed to have slept for a long time. When he woke up again, his vision briefly darkened. Sitting at the edge of the bed, he waited for the momentary discomfort to pass. He picked up his phone and saw a message from his mother sent ten minutes ago.

[Jingxu, we have guests at home tonight. If you’re hungry when you wake up, come down for dinner~]

He still didn’t know that this year’s New Year’s Eve would be spent with another family.

Gu Jingxu is very good at dealing with people in the business world, but once the scene changes, he reveals a different side that doesn’t quite match his appearance. In previous years, his mother particularly enjoyed seeing him display this contrasting demeanor, even encouraging him to talk more with the elders during the New Year.

It seems like this year was no exception.

Gu Jingxu didn’t pay much attention to the arrival of the guests.

After washing his face, the cold water helped him become more alert. Looking at himself in the mirror, he seemed transformed, appearing much more docile with his wet hair falling over his forehead. The signs of fatigue from a few hours ago had diminished significantly.

He still maintained his expressionless demeanor. As the elevator doors opened, he heard his mother engaged in conversation with the guests.

Gu Jingxu didn’t care much about it. However, the moment he stepped out of the elevator, a familiar female voice reached his ears.

“Auntie Gu, if you like it, I can come next time to make it for you.”

“Great! I haven’t had such authentic Chinese pastries in years. Oh, Jingxu, why don’t you come over? Look! This is Chi Yu, she’s an artist from your company!”

Gu Jingxu was stunned, his legs seemed to be glued in place, and his gaze fixed on Chi You’s face. He couldn’t even blink.

He wasn’t mistaken.

It was Chi You.

The beautiful, gentle-looking girl who appeared harmless with a smiling face.

His Chi You.

Gu Jingxu’s reaction puzzled some of the parents present. While he stared at Chi You, her gaze never left him.

The man, with a broad shoulder and long legs, appeared unhealthy, emanating a strong sense of detachment. It seemed like he hadn’t been eating well.

He had lost weight.

Chi Yu blinked, speaking softly, “President Gu, long time no see.”

Finally, Gu Jingxu felt his heart beating.

His throat moved slightly, and as he walked closer, he lowered his eyes, his voice trembling, “Long time no see.”

Long time no see, I’ve missed you so much…

Gu Jingxu took a seat in the vacant spot. In the intervals of their conversation, he lowered his gaze slightly, observing Chi You who continued to chat with Mother Gu while smiling.

He greeted the parents of the He family, sat for a while, and only belatedly realized that Chi You was sitting right beside him.

They had been apart for only a few days, but the feeling was as if they hadn’t experienced it for a long time.

Why was Chi You here? What had she been doing when he didn’t know?

Gu Jingxu suddenly realized that he didn’t really understand Chi You.

The girl’s face showed no sign of abnormality. He didn’t know what she had said, but both mothers burst into laughter.

The silent He Chenran, who hadn’t spoken all this while, looked at the two of them with interest. Gu Jingxu didn’t dare to look at Chi You openly, but that didn’t mean he couldn’t glance at He Chenran.

Having noticed his gaze, Gu Jingxu raised his eyelids and stared at him expressionlessly.

Gu Jingxu did have some impression of He Chenran, but he recognized him at a glance. He was the person he had seen in the surveillance footage, accompanying Chi You to the airport.

The reason for Chi You’s presence there seemed quite clear.

Gu Jingxu withdrew his gaze.

“By the way, Jingxu, I haven’t told you yet. Chi You, ah, she’s the daughter that Uncle He has been searching for all these years!”

Mother Gu looked excited, and there was a gleam in her azure eyes. “Look, how coincidental…”

Before she could finish her sentence, she was pulled by Father Gu.

Mother Gu chuckled awkwardly and buried her head in the food in front of her.

Knowing that Gu Jingxu rarely socialized with people of the same age, and Chi You was even younger than him by a few years, Mother Gu still couldn’t restrain some thoughts.

She didn’t say that they must be in a relationship. Just being friends would be good. If her son could make friends with Chi You after returning to the country, she would be more at ease.

If this were in the past, Gu Jingxu might have guessed what his mother was thinking.

However, at the moment, with Chi You sitting beside him, close enough that she could touch his arm with a slight turn, he dared not move or even breathe loudly. How could he spare the attention to guess his mother’s thoughts?
