Gu Zheng smiled lightly. “Mrs. Gu, how about I invest in you? I definitely won’t let you suffer. As long as you’re willing to hand me a satisfactory proposal within a week, I’ll give you a satisfactory sum of assets.”
Qiao Xi hesitated for a moment and asked in a light voice, “Do you think I lack money?”
Although Qingfeng Entertainment was not as famous as Heavenly Voice Entertainment, it was still a top presence in the entertainment industry. It made a name for itself with all kinds of interesting variety shows and was unparalleled in the variety industry. However, the boss behind Qingfeng Entertainment was very mysterious. No one would have thought that the boss behind Qingfeng Entertainment was a 20-year-old lady.
“Mrs. Gu, I wish to work with you because of your ability. I want you to manage Heavenly Voice Entertainment. I think you’ll definitely give me a surprise.”
Qiao Xi was stunned for a few seconds as she stared at Gu Zheng in surprise. The investment he was talking about earlier was not real money but shares of Heavenly Voice Entertainment. Qiao Xi was just about to refuse when Gu Zheng spoke again, “Actually, this company was yours to begin with. It’s time to hand it to you.”
“What do you mean?” Qiao Xi blinked with a puzzled expression.
“Do you still remember that many years ago, we were talking on the phone one time and you sang a song for me? It was the best song I had ever heard in my life. It was like the sound of nature and had the innocence of a young girl. Unfortunately, I hadn’t met you then. After I founded Gu Corporation and had enough assets, I founded Heavenly Voice Entertainment. At that time, I thought that if I could meet you one day, I would definitely hand Heavenly Voice Entertainment to you to manage. It’s because of you that I founded Heavenly Voice Entertainment.”
Qiao Xi’s heart trembled as she carefully searched for that memory in her mind. She actually had no impression of it at all. It felt as though something was missing in her heart. The more she thought about it, the more her head hurt.
“Xi Xi, there are some things I don’t know how to say. You just need to remember that I love you. No matter when or where, we would’ve ended up meeting anyway. We’re fated.”
Why was Gu Zheng so sure? She kept feeling that she had forgotten something, and Gu Zheng said that she had sung to him before. Had she forgotten, or did Gu Zheng remember wrongly?
Qiao Xi’s mind buzzed, and the discomfort in her body caused her to be unable to continue thinking. At this moment, Gu Zheng said gently, “Xi Xi, what happened in the past doesn’t matter anymore. You just have to remember that I’ll always be by your side. I’ll never leave you.”
Then, Gu Zheng stroked her head affectionately and teased, “Mrs. Gu, if you’re not full, I can make you supper tonight.”
Qiao Xi abruptly recovered from her shock and asked with a smile, “You just said that you wouldn’t enter the kitchen anymore!”
Gu Zheng slowly approached her and pinched her smooth and fair cheek. He smiled and said clearly, “I can toss aside all my principles as long as it’s for you, Mrs. Gu. It’s my honor that you like my cooking. I can cook for you for the rest of my life. As long as you like something, I’ll be sure to learn it and won’t fail.”
He had already learned how to cook. Now, he could start learning how to play the zither.
Suddenly, Qiao Xi felt dizzy. It was clearly only seven o’clock, but she was already so sleepy that she could not open her eyes. After Gu Zheng carried her upstairs, she fell asleep as soon as she lay down. In her confusion, something seemed to surge into her mind. Her temples were throbbing. An unfamiliar scene appeared in front of her eyes. Then, a loud bang sounded in her ears. The sky instantly darkened and was dyed red.
Qiao Xi was awakened by the ringing of her phone. She abruptly stood up, her forehead covered in sweat. The curtains in the bedroom were dark, and Gu Zheng was quietly sitting on the chair with his eyes lowered like a statue.
She knew that his vision was definitely dark at this moment. Qiao Xi hurriedly stood up and turned on the lights. A trace of light appeared in the man’s eyes as he raised his eyes slightly to look at her.
Qiao Xi’s heart ached as she asked anxiously, “Why didn’t you turn on the lights?”
“I didn’t want to disturb your sleep. Moreover, I’ve long gotten used to the dark.” Gu Zheng’s eyes gradually recovered their clarity as he shifted his gaze to the phone.
Qiao Xi hurriedly picked up her phone to take a look. It was Qin An. Qin An must have something urgent considering how he gave her a call at this hour. She hurriedly picked up the phone and called back. “Third Brother, what’s wrong?”
“Little Six!” Qin An’s voice was filled with coldness. “Where’s Gu Zheng?”
Qiao Xi responded, “Huh?” Was there something wrong with this person? He was looking for her husband in the middle of the night?
