I ADORE HIM
(The Azure Sky Awaits the Preceding Rain, Like How I Waited for You (3)
Gu Yusheng didn’t arrive at Hui Shi until the afternoon. He started to throw a fit the moment he crossed the threshold into the company. He looked like a bomb that would explode at the moment someone might dare to challenge him.
Everyone at the company began immediately to start feeling depressed because of his presence. Employees sat properly in front of their desks, even keeping their breathing controlled so as to not make a sound. Some needed to use the restroom but did not even consider moving off their chairs.
Lu Bancheng later arrived at Hui Shi to visit Gu Yusheng, and as he stepped out of the elevator small sighs of relief could be heard in some corners of the secretaries’ office. Lu Bancheng saw Xiaowang holding a few files in his arms walking nervously back and forth in front of Gu Yusheng’s office door. He even stopped once and tried to steal the courage to knock, but he did not dare to actually do it.
When Xiaowang saw Lu Bancheng, he also saw a lifesaver. He immediately ran to Lu Bancheng, who by now had pieced together the strange atmosphere in the office. He lifted his chin up at Gu Yusheng’s office and whispered to Xiaowang, “Was he mad about the news I saw this morning?”
Xiaowang looked at Lu Bancheng with worry. “Yeah, today has been a nightmare.” Xiaowang updated him in entirety in a whisper.
“A media company called Master Gu this morning and asked if the news on the internet was true. Master Gu was shocked by the call and told the media company he had no idea who Liang Doukou was. He said he didn’t know her at all.
“After hanging up on the call, he went online to read the news. He smashed his phone on the floor, and his face… His face became the same color gray as the sky out the window.
“He immediately asked me to go to his grandfather’s house with him. When Master Gu got there, Miss Liang was already there, too. She was on a call with a journalist, and she was in the middle of telling him that she has known Yusheng for many years. When the journalist had called Old Master Gu’s house, Miss Liang had answered the phone just to put out there that she’s already a member of the Gu family. When Master Gu walked in on this, he slashed the landline cord and started screaming at Miss Liang.
“Old Master Gu couldn’t just stand back and watch his grandson screaming at her, so of course a nasty altercation broke out between the two of them. Then, Master Gu, right in front of Miss Liang, called the staff at Sina Company and asked them to delete that news. Then he called a ton of other media to let them know he’ll be holding a press conference later in the day to explain why he’s not related to Miss Liang.
“Old Master Gu told him not to do it, because it’d be a public slap in the face to Miss Liang. If Master Gu doesn’t listen to him, he will completely disown him as his grandson. And you know how frightfully stubborn Master Gu can be… He told Old Master Gu that he didn’t care if he was kicked out of the family.
“And ever since he’s arrived today, his anger is affecting all of the employees—they are miserable…”
Xiaowang talked for a long time in a low voice before he realized what he should have done when he first saw Lu Bancheng walk out of the elevator. He shoved the files into Lu Bancheng’s arms and flattered him. “Mr. Lu, please do me a favor. These files are urgent.”
Lu Bancheng looked down at the files and told Xiaowang to leave before he walked to Gu Yusheng’s office. When Lu Bancheng reached Gu Yusheng’s door, he knocked twice. When no one answered, he pushed the door open and let himself in.
The office was gray and deathly silent. Gu Yusheng was not at his desk. He was standing at the window, with hands in pockets, staring at a sky of gloom lost in his thoughts.
