25-chapter-19

Qin Yi had been exposed for using foul language in the crew before, but it was unexpected that the first person she scolded in this crew, playing the male lead, was Song Yan.

Others dared not speak, and Chi You knew Song Yan’s attitude towards her. He didn’t help her up just now, which was his usual style.

However, it was Qin Yi’s reaction that surprised her.

She subconsciously touched her face, muttering to herself as she faced the approaching Bao Yihong, “It seems I am really beautiful…”

Bao Yihong: “…………?”

Quickly recovering from the recent incident, Chi You wanted to surprise Gu Jingxu that day. She could somewhat guess that he would be eager to see her, so she planned to finish shooting early and then go to him.

However, as soon as she left the set, three people followed her.

Chi You frowned, and upon seeing Xu Xueyin’s timid face, she couldn’t help feeling a bit displeased.

It seems that she couldn’t give Mr.Gu a surprise.

In the Gu Corporation, Assistant Wang emerged from the elevator, holding a document, and knocked on the door of the CEO’s office.

Gu Jingxu, who had rested for two hours during the day, had already dealt with important matters. As Assistant Wang entered, he was coming out of the restroom in the lounge.

“Mr. Gu, the cancellation of the evening meeting has been notified.”

Gu Jingxu nodded quietly, approaching to put on his wristwatch. Assistant Wang handed over the documents in his hand. “The doctor just delivered the medical examination report. Everything is normal.”

Gu Jingxu glanced at the medical report that Chi You had specifically requested. “Put it down.”

His face remained calm and unreadable, but in the next moment, he turned abruptly and went back into the restroom.

Assistant Wang stood there without saying a word. After a while, Gu Jingxu came out again.

Looking puzzled at Gu Jingxu, who seemed to have done something, Assistant Wang saw him looking through the medical report and then picking up the contract he had checked several times that day to make sure there were no mistakes.

Turning to see Assistant Wang looking shocked in place, Gu Jingxu slightly frowned. “What’s wrong?”

“Ah… nothing, I’ll go prepare the car now.”

Assistant Wang left the office with an astonished expression.

Gu Jingxu had been absent-minded all day today. Not long after the morning, Assistant Wang had a rough idea of the direction of what happened. He originally thought it might be dissatisfaction with the remuneration offered by Gu Jingxu, but after observing the whole day, it seemed like the changes made were not very significant.

As for the medical examination report… those who understood knew.

But Assistant Wang didn’t dare to discuss the boss’s matters with others in the company. Gu Jingxu’s unusual behavior these days made him curious. He wondered who the person was that had suddenly caught his boss’s interest.

Silent all the way, after arriving at the set, Gu Jingxu, who hadn’t received a single message, silently sent a message to Chi You.

[x: I’ve arrived.]

Chi You didn’t reply with anything else, just sent a location.

He opened the car door and got out.

On the other side, after sending the location to Gu Jingxu, Chi You lifted her head. She then heard her mother’s displeased voice, “When did you meet Mr. Gu? You’ve never told the family before.”

The last time at the banquet hosted by the Chi family, the simultaneous appearance of Gu Jingxu and Chi You was still a topic of discussion.

The Chi parents waited until then to inquire, showing considerable patience.

Chi You casually took a sip of water, and said with a sarcastic smile on her lips, “Yes, I’ve known for a long time that I’m not your biological daughter. I also knew you would host a banquet to embarrass me. So I intentionally concealed my acquaintance with Mr. Gu, is this answer satisfactory?”

Her mother’s face showed some difficulty dealing with her words.

Ignoring the strict control she experienced in the Chi family before, even if she truly knew Mr. Gu, they would have found out long ago. Furthermore, the fact that Chi You wasn’t the biological child of the Chi family was something she only learned after they brought Xu Xueyin home.

Where did that intentionally provocative remark come from?

It was just that Mrs. Chi was very dissatisfied with Chi You’s tone, so her expression became even more strained, “You were quite clear just now. Our Chi family raised you for so many years just so you could become an actor and learn to talk to your parents like this, wasn’t that the idea?!”

Chi You looked at her expression, remaining calm and composed. “Mrs. Chi, allow me to remind you, I have no relationship with the Chi family anymore.”

Mrs. Chi was choked by her words and angrily closed her mouth.

Seeing this, Mr. Chi immediately said, “Chi You, you weren’t like this before. You used to be a well-behaved child who never spoke to your parents like this. Even if we are no longer a family now, after raising you for so many years, could you just cut ties so easily?”

“Only by following all your arrangements without a word of disagreement could one be considered the well-behaved child you raised, right?”

Chi You raised her eyes to look at Mr. and Mrs. Chi, her expression indifferent. After speaking, her gaze shifted and met the eyes of Xu Xueyin, who had been sitting in the center without daring to speak.

Seeing her suddenly looking at herself, Xu Xueyin was stunned and immediately avoided eye contact.

Mr. Chi, angered by her words, turned red and almost couldn’t control his temper as he slammed the table. “Our Chi family had really raised a wolf! You just left home for a short time, and you already talk back like this!”

Chi You stared at him calmly, lips pursed, remaining silent for a while.

Mrs. Chi didn’t want to beat around the bush with her anymore and asked directly with a stern face, “Speak quickly. What is your relationship with President Gu? When did you meet him, and how much did you tell him about the family affairs?”
