That would give a totally different meaning to this situation.
“Ye, I believe you know about Xin Cheng Energy’s project. When CEO Gu initially spent twenty million to get it, everyone thought it was an unprofitable business. However, Xin Cheng Energy’s market value has doubly increased at the moment and is expected to keep rising. This project has been a significant case study for the school of economics, and that’s why we wish to invite CEO Gu to give a talk,” explained Professor Huang honestly. This time, he had spilled the beans.
Gu Juexi looked at Ye Yuwei with a smirk. He waited to see what she would reply.
“That is a good idea. You should extend your invitation to CEO Gu instead of me. There’s nothing I can do about it,” said Ye Yuwei indifferently.
“But…” Professor Huang paused. He was a bit reluctant to admit it, “We did send him an invitation but it was rejected just now.”
“Oh, that’s the case. Well, Gu Juexi is not a person with a good temper,” said Ye Yuwei matter-of-factly while staring at Gu Juexi.
Gu Juexi did not say a word but narrowed his eyes at her. ‘That ungrateful woman. Didn’t he treat her well enough?’
“Little Yezi!” Someone bellowed her nickname from the other side of the phone. It sounded like an old man but he must be very healthy based on his loud voice.
Ye Yuwei’s body trembled a little and she unconsciously sat straighter even though she knew the person from the other side of the phone could not see her at all. “P-Professor Zhou.”
Professor Zhou was currently the most respected giant in the national economics course. He was also Ye Yuwei’s university professor in the past. If not for her marriage to Gu Juexi, she would have been Professor Zhou’s research student.
“Who are you playing dumb with?”
“Professor Zhou, I didn’t—” Ye Yuwei quickly said. She had a lot of respect and gratitude for Professor Zhou so her previous arrogant tone disappeared instantly. She sounded like a child who had been caught making a mistake.
“I don’t care what those people said just now. I want to meet Gu Juexi. You can make it happen, can’t you?” The professor voiced out his request bluntly.
Ye Yuwei could hear someone trying to persuade Professor Zhou to get Gu Juexi’s nod to give the talk, but she did not bother about it.
Ye Yuwei glanced at Gu Juexi and continued, “Professor Zhou, you can meet him anytime you like. He admires you a lot.”
Gu Juexi was puzzled. When did he ask about meeting Professor Zhou in person?
Ye Yuwei looked at Gu Juexi pleadingly, then continued to talk to the person on the phone, “I will bring Gu Juexi over to meet you and Mrs. Zhou whenever you are free.”
After setting a date with Professor Zhou, Ye Yuwei ended the call.
Gu Juexi stared at Ye Yuwei with folded arms, waiting for her explanation.
She put her phone away and looked up at Gu Juexi. “Professor Zhou was my lecturer when I was studying in university. He knew about my actual situation so he was the one applying for scholarships for me every year back then. On top of that, his wife treated me very well so I can’t reject his request at all.”
After Gu Juexi listened to her, he recalled that Professor Zhou never mentioned persuading him to give the talk. He caressed Ye Yuwei’s head and told her, “Finally, there is someone excellent from your university.”
Ye Yuwei blinked at him, speechless.
“That means you agree to give the talk?” Ye Yuwei held Gu Juexi’s wrist in surprise. She continued persuasively, “Just have a meal with him. Professor Zhou won’t say a word about the talk. Just agree, please.”
