C36 – Sly Businessman

Anyway, Wen Shuyue and Gu Ning had known each other for several years, but she had never thought that Gu Ning just regarded her as a tool to make money and even blurted out such words.

Wen Shuyue felt a chill in her heart. In fact, when people made fun of her and Gu Ning before, she was somehow pleased deep down in her heart. Even though she didn’t like Gu Ning, she had a somewhat favorable impression of him because of others’ jokes.

What he said now dispelled all the only affection she had for him.

How could a wealthy CEO like Gu Ning actually have a serious relationship with a woman?

“Okay, Mr. Gu. I’m at your disposal.” Wen Shuyue answered after regaining her senses.

Even if she didn’t want to do that, there was no other way. In order to have enough capital to compete with Lu Junhan, she could not give up MK at this moment.

Gu Ning seemed to have already expected that she would agree, so he was not surprised. He just patted her on the shoulder and said, “Thanks for what you’ve done for MK. Shuyue, I believe you will not let me down.”

“Mr. Gu, what do you want me to do?” Wen Shuyue quickly changed the subject. She didn’t want to see Gu Ning’s hypocrisy now, which would make her feel even sicker.

Her attitude shocked Gu Ning. The smile on his face was restrained. He stared at her, not knowing what to say.

They stood very close, but there seemed to be a Milky way between the two. This sense of alienation never appeared except when they met for the first time. Now, it appeared again.

“Mr. Gu, what do you want me to do?”

It was long before Wen Shuyue broke the silence again.

Gu Ning slowly recovered from his thoughts, took his eyes back from her, and spoke calmly as if nothing had happened. “I’ll talk to He Siming and ask you to study at his company. Then you can seduce him, and you will steal whatever I ask you to steal for me.”

It was disgusting!

It made Wen Shuyue furious. She wished she had brought her phone with her, or she would have recorded what Gu Ning said.

Wen Shuyue soothed her anger until it was over, and then she spoke quietly.

“Well, it’s all up to you. If nothing else, I’ll get back to work.”

Before Gu Ning could say anything, Wen Shuyue turned around and walked away. She felt sick at the sight of this man and did not want to talk to him at all.

Gu Ning was different from the man she knew at the beginning. At that time, Gu Ning was at least acting like a friend, but now Gu Ning had no conscience and cared nothing other than business and profits.

Looking at Wen Shuyue’s back, Gu Ning could not help shaking slightly. Today’s conversation was far worse than he had expected. Seeing Wen Shuyue’s disgusted expression, he even wondered if he had done something wrong.

“What’s the matter with me?” Gu Ning murmured in a trance.

Although Wen Shuyue was trying hard to pull herself together, she could not focus on her work.

“Miss Wen, are your hands all right?”

Xiaolu’s voice pulled Wen Shuyue back from her thoughts. Wen Shuyue’s injured hand accidentally touched the hot cup again, and the water splashed slightly on it.

Realizing the burning pain, Wen Shuyue quickly pulled her hand away, and her face was contorted with the pain.

Xiaolu sighed helplessly and complained, “I told you not to come to work these two days, but you still insist on coming. Your wound will hurt for a few more days. “

“I have to. Mr. Gu is back today. I need to meet him.” Wen Shuyue smiled bitterly.  

Anyhow, she was the CEO of MK China Office. If she was absent from work because of a slight injury, other people might make a big fuss about it.

People in this company seemed to respect her in public, but in fact, they remained unconvinced and longed for finding faults with her to kick her out of MK as soon as possible.

Xiaolu was speechless, but rather grieved for Wen Shuyue’s hand, so she took out the ready medicine box and helped Wen Shuyue bandage up her wound again.

Maybe because of the wound infection, Wen Shuyue always felt her hand ached very much, which slowly led to some pain in her head.

“Xiaolu, take these materials and sort them out.” Wen Shuyue left all the rest of the work to Xiaolu. She felt so terrible that she couldn’t work anymore.

At the beginning, Xiaolu didn’t notice anything wrong, but when Wen Shuyue’s face was getting paler, she quickly became worried and asked, “Miss Wen, are you okay? Have you got a fever?”

“I’m fine, I…”

“Miss Wen! “

Before Wen Shuyue could finish speaking, she fainted with pain. Xiaolu hurriedly called someone to help take Wen Shuyue to the hospital. 

Even though there was nothing serious with Wen Shuyue, Xiaolu still called Lin Lin over. After all, she only knew Lin Lin among Wen Shuyue’s friends.

“What’s going on here? I told her to take good care of herself these days, but she was so stubborn.” As soon as Lin Lin got here, she kept complaining.

Xiaolu stayed awkwardly and didn’t know what to say. It seemed that no matter what she said would be wrong at this time and her right choice was to keep silent obediently.

Wen Shuyue slowly opened her eyes, and the moment she saw Lin Lin, she knew she was already in the hospital.

Seeing her awake, Lin Lin hurriedly came over and complained with a cold face, “Can you take care of yourself? Can you stop worrying me so much? What if something should happen to you? Do you want to keep Baobao at home alone?”

“Baobao? Where is he now?” Wen Shuyue’s voice sounded hoarse when it came to mentioning Wen Baobao.

Her eyes also kept looking around for Wen Baobao, but in the end, she found nothing.

Lin Lin rolled her eyes. Although she had been complaining, she went to pacify Wen Shuyue, “If you’re worried about him, why don’t you take care of yourself? He is not yet aware of the matter. I told him you were working overtime and would be back in a few minutes.”

“Thank you.” Wen Shuyue clutched her hand, tears welling up in her eyes.

“The doctor said you must have a good rest in the hospital for two days. You mustn’t go to work.” Lin Lin, instead, put on a resolute look.
