Su Wei guessed that he might be angry, and hurriedly explained: "The painting was in his office, and it was bought by a regular customer for 13 million. He called me the extra million, and I want it Call him back, he doesn't want it, let's treat it. I declined, so I drew a new picture of Mohe and gave it to him, but he wanted to invite me to dinner again. I couldn't shirk it, so I had to let you go with me If you are not free, I will ask Shen Yuan to accompany me."
As soon as the words fell, Gu Beixian's voice came from the phone: "I'm free."
Su Hua smiled, "Thank you."
The next day, at six o'clock in the evening.
Su Hua and Gu Beixian came to Gu Jinyao's private restaurant.
The owner of this private restaurant, it is said that his ancestors worked as the royal chef in the palace, only cooks eight tables a day, each table only cooks eight dishes, does not accept orders from customers, and never cooks more.
Business is doing very well.
When you come to eat, you need to make a reservation three days in advance. When it is at its peak, you have to book a table three months in advance.
The predecessor of the restaurant was remodeled from a small western-style building where a warlord lived during the Republic of China. The environment is retro and charming, with a unique flavor.
When the two arrived, Gu Jinyao had already arrived ahead of schedule.
Seeing Gu Beixian standing next to Su Wei, Gu Jinyao's eyes darkened, and then he raised the corners of his lips and said with a smile: "Hello, Mr. Gu."
Gu Beixian's brows and eyes were cold, and he nodded at him expressionlessly, as a greeting.
Three people are seated.
Su Hua carefully opened a third of the painting in her hand, handed it to Gu Jinyao, and said, "Mr. Gu, take a look, are you satisfied?"
Gu Jinyao took it over, held it in his hand, unfolded it little by little, and watched carefully with lowered eyes.
After appreciating it, he looked away from the painting and looked at Su Wei.
There was a smile line on the corner of his lips, and he praised: "Sure enough, I didn't misread you. The shape, spirit, and rhyme of this painting are all complete, lifelike, thank you for my father."
Su Hua smiled lightly, "It should."
When sitting down, from the corner of the eye, I saw Gu Beixian drinking tea with a cool face.
She reached under the table, rubbed his legs, and coaxed him.
That naughty hand was grabbed by Gu Beixian's backhand, held in the palm, and slowly rubbed it.
His face also looked a little better.
Because it was ordered in advance, the food came out quickly.
There are Buddha jumping over the wall, orchid bear's paw, wolfberry shark's fin soup, rock sugar and blood bird's nest, etc.
Gu Jinyao lightly turned the rotating glass on the table, and turned the Bingtangxue bird's nest in front of Su Wei, "Miss Su, I ordered it specially for you."
Su Hua said politely, "Thank you."
Gu Beixian's eyes were slightly cold, he raised his eyes, and waved to the waiter waiting at the side.
The waiter came over and asked respectfully, "Mr. Gu, what do you need?"
Gu Beixian took out a card from his wallet and handed it to her, "I'll take this table, swipe the card."
Su Hua couldn't laugh or cry.
Well agreed, Gu Jinyao treats guests.
It's too embarrassing for someone to say just one sentence, and he will pay the bill.
The waiter smiled and said, "Mr. Gu, this Mr. Gu has already paid the bill in advance."
Gu Beixian held the hand of the bank card, still stopped in mid-air, and said in a commanding tone: "Return his money, and swipe my card."
The waiter was in a dilemma, so he had to look at Gu Jinyao, "Mr. Gu, look..."
The corners of Gu Jinyao's lips twitched into a very shallow arc, with a smile that was not a smile, and said to Gu Beixian, "Mr. Gu, I'll invite you this time, and you can invite me next time."
Su Hua turned her head to look at Gu Beixian.
He remained in his original position.
Su Wei knew that he had a good face and needed a step down.
She gently pulled the bank card out of his hand and stuffed it back into her wallet.
Seeing that his complexion was still not very good, she took another spoonful of bird's nest, fed it into his mouth, and said with a smile, "You've been busy with work recently, so eat some bird's nest to clear the fire."
Gu Beixian didn't refuse, he opened his mouth to hold it in his mouth, and ate very politely, his face gradually returned to normal.
Su Hua secretly breathed a sigh of relief.
Finally, I got this pass to be fooled.
Before she came here, she never expected that Gu Beixian, who is usually gentle and polite, and extremely personable in dealing with things, would also have such serious moments.
He is obviously a business elite who is both talented and elegant, but at this moment, he is jealous like a young man in love.
While Su Wei was contemplating, Gu Beixian picked up a spoon to scoop up a spoonful of shark fin soup, handed it to her mouth, stared at her tenderly, and said in a gentle voice, "You've been staying up all night painting recently, you're exhausted, eat something Shark fin supplements."
Su Hua was a little embarrassed.
Gu Jinyao was sitting opposite and watching.
I don't know him well, so it's embarrassing to feed him around like this in front of others.
But Gu Beixian was competitive, she had to give him face, so she opened her mouth to eat it, and said with a smile: "You eat too."
Gu Beixian hummed, and pointed to the bird's nest in front of her, "You feed me."
Su Hua couldn't laugh or cry.
But she asked him to come here for today's dinner, so naturally she had to give him enough face, so he followed suit.
Gu Jinyao watched coldly and shook his head very lightly.
Men know men best.
He understood Gu Beixian's thoughts.
This super sense of crisis is no one else.
Next, the couple fed each other back and forth as if they had no long hands.
Gu Beixian finished feeding Su Hua.
Su Hua fed Gu Beixian again.
Gu Jinyao sat across from each other silently, looking at the two people who were shamelessly feeding each other, without saying a word.
Even though there was a table full of delicacies and wild game, he ate it to the brim. He just wanted to finish it quickly and leave.
When the meal was almost finished, Gu Beixian said to Su Hua, "I'm going out to smoke a cigarette."
Usually Su Hua doesn't like him smoking.
But outside, she gave him enough face and said with a smile: "Go, smoke less."
Gu Beixian hummed, gave Gu Jinyao a wink, pushed away the chair, stood up, and walked out first.
"Miss Su, I'm going to smoke a cigarette too." Gu Jinyao said to Su Hua, and then walked out.
The two went to the smoking room one after the other.
Go to the window.
Gu Beixian pushed open the window, took out the cigarette case, shook out one, and handed it to Gu Jinyao.
Gu Jinyao took it, but didn't light it up, just held it between his fingers to play with.
He pulled a chair casually and sat down, crossing his long legs, with a smile on his face, but his eyes were sharp.
Gu Beixian's noble and tall body leaned lazily in front of the window, looked at him coldly, and raised his eyebrows, "Your surname is Lu?"
Gu Jinyao's dark pupils hardened slightly, and said in a toneless tone: "My surname is Gu, and I am the son of Gu Zhengrong. I just returned to China this year."
Gu Beixian didn't answer, pursed his lips, and looked at him coolly for a few seconds.
Put the cigarette in your mouth, pull the lighter, light it, take a deep breath, and slowly exhale the smoke.
His handsome and heroic face was surrounded by white smoke, his outline was blurred by the smoke, and his expression could not be seen clearly.
Neither of them spoke.
A dark silence filled the room.
After a long period of cold silence.
Gu Beixian spoke.
He didn't look at Gu Jinyao, lowered his eyelashes slightly, stared at the smoke in his hand, and said in a casual tone: "Chu Suosuo's hands and face, are you moving them?"
The smile on Gu Jinyao's face froze, and when he pressed his fingers hard, the cigarette between his fingers was pinched in two.
His voice was extremely indifferent, "I can't understand what you are talking about."
Gu Beixian's eyes flicked across the cigarette between his fingers, his eyes gradually became more intriguing, and his thin lips parted slightly: "Su Wei is my wife, no matter what your last name is, don't bother her."
Gu Jinyao shrugged, with a provocative expression, "What are you afraid of?"
Gu Beixian's eyes were slightly cold, staring at him, the air pressure on his body became extremely low in an instant.
Gu Jinyao hooked the corner of his mouth towards him.
There seemed to be a knife hidden in that smile.
Gu Beixian also smiled, flicked the cigarette into the ashtray, and said flatly, "Su Wei called me here today. You saw how much she cares about me just now."
His tone was low, with a smile on his lips, but it was difficult to distinguish his emotions.
Gu Jinyao paused and restrained his smile.
"Protect her." After saying this, he pushed the chair, stood up and was about to leave.
Gu Beixian's eyes turned cold, "Don't you think it's out of place for you, an outsider, to care so much about my wife?"
Gu Jinyao paused, and said without expression: "Her kind of talent is rare in a hundred years, everyone sees and protects her."
After speaking, he threw the cut cigarette into the trash can and walked out.
Seeing him walking away, Gu Beixian's eyes were extremely dark, and his fists were slowly clenched.
Cigarettes clenched between fingers.
The scorching cigarette butt burned to the palm of my hand, but I didn't feel any pain.
Throwing away the cigarette, he took out his mobile phone from his trousers pocket and dialed Su Hua, "Let's go."
"Okay, see you in the lobby on the first floor." Su Hua said softly.
Gu Beixian hummed lightly.
Su Wei hung up the phone and walked out with her bag, just in time to meet Gu Jinyao.
She smiled at him, "Thank you for your hospitality tonight."
Gu Jinyao smiled deeply, "It should."
Su Hua said politely, "Goodbye."
Gu Jinyao looked down at her with gentle eyes, and said softly, "Goodbye."
Listen carefully, and you can hear the hidden nostalgia hidden under these ordinary words.
It's a pity that Su Wei didn't listen carefully, her whole heart was on Gu Beixian.
She walked quickly, like a gust of wind.
Gu Jinyao silently watched her back.
That slender and thin figure walked farther and farther along the corridor, farther and farther away.
He didn't look away until he was completely invisible, his dark eyes became deeper, like a bottomless lake.
Su Wei came to the first floor and met Gu Beixian.
The two left the private restaurant.
As soon as she went out, Su Hua let out a long breath of relief.
This meal is really tiring.
But don't ask Gu Beixian to come over, if he finds out later, he will definitely be unhappy.
A marriage that is already in jeopardy needs to be taken good care of.
The two get in the car.
When the car door closed, Gu Beixian suddenly raised his hand, hooked Su Hua into his arms, pinched her chin and kissed her.
The more he kissed, the more ruthless he was, full of brute force, as if he was competing with someone.
There was actually no pleasure in kissing so hard, but Su Wei didn't push him away.
There's no way, my man can only get used to it.
Here, Gu Jinyao took Su Wei's painting and drove away from the private restaurant.
back to the residence.
As soon as I sat down, I received a call from my mother from abroad, "I heard you went to see Gu Beixian?"
Gu Jinyao frowned slightly, and responded lightly.
"You promised me that you would not go to see that family, and that's why I agreed with you to return to China."
Gu Jinyao's eyebrows and eyes were indifferent, "I invited Su Hua to dinner, he came by himself."
"Su Wei is also from that family, so please do it yourself." The mother hung up the phone.
