Chapter 988: Lu Huaiyu’s Answer

Lu Huaiyu smiled.

“There’s no need for me to lie about such things.”

The man’s tone of voice was as languid as ever.

Gu Tinglan stared into his eyes for a moment and said, “Alright, then let me put it another way. Without Ah Li’s company, if you don’t go to sleep in the afternoon and you remain awake, what are the chances that you won’t have any hallucinations?”

The smile on Lu Huaiyu’s lips faded, and the look in his phoenix-like eyes deepened.

Gu Tinglan continued.

“Let me guess, 30%? 10%? Or… even lower?”

Lu Huaiyu looked at him quietly. There seemed to be a thin layer of frost between his brows, bringing with it a cold chill.

The room was silent.

The afternoon sunlight was just right. The bright light shone in through the shutters, and the fine dust dancing in the air could be clearly seen.

A ray of light fell on Lu Huaiyu’s face, causing his three-dimensional features to sink into the interweaving of light and shadow. It was clear and clean, but there was a thick and dark color in the depths of his eyes that could not be dissolved.

It was as if even the light could not approach or melt it, leaving only an ice-cold coldness that could not be touched.

He did not speak. This was his answer.

On Tuesday morning, after Shen Li finished her first class, she took a taxi to Shengguang Media’s headquarters.

She called Zhao Xuan. It rang a few times before the other person picked up.

“Director Shen.”

As soon as the call was connected, Shen Li heard a commotion coming from his side. She vaguely heard someone cursing loudly.

She frowned slightly.

“What’s the situation on your side?”

Zhao Xuan explained,”Director Shen, the car in front of me was just in an accident.”

Shen Li said in a focused voice, “How are you?”

“I’m fine. It’s just that the collision between the two cars is very bad. The entire road has been blocked. Everyone is waiting for the traffic police and the tow truck. I might be half an hour late.”

“It’s alright. Take care of yourself.”

“Thank you, Director Shen.”

After confirming that Zhao Xuan was fine, Shen Li hung up.

Fifteen minutes later, she arrived at the Shengguang Media headquarters.

Since Zhao Xuan had not arrived yet, she sat in her office and read the documents.

Twenty minutes later, she finished the last document and put it aside.

In her spare time, she thought of Zhao Xuan and opened Weibo to search for the street where the car accident had happened.

Then, several real-time Weibo posts appeared on the page. They were all about the car accident, and there was a lot of discussion about it.

Of course, a normal car accident would not end there. Shen Li swiped down and quickly found out the reason.

The two cars that had crashed into each other in this car accident were both luxury cars worth millions.

Someone had taken a photo, and it could be seen that the two cars had been deformed by the huge impact.

It was obvious that the car was no longer of any value, because even if it was repaired, the cost would be enough to buy another car.

No wonder the onlookers were so concerned about this.

Knock, knock.

Shen Li looked up. “Come in.”

Zhao Xuan walked in.

It was obvious that he had come in a hurry.

“Director Shen, I’m really sorry.”

Zhao Xuan looked apologetic.

It was rare for Shen Li to come, yet he had been late.

“It’s okay. Sit down.”

Shen Li was unconcerned about this. After all, Zhao Xuan was not at fault.

Zhao Xuan sat down in the chair opposite her. He glanced at her out of the corner of his eye and was a little surprised.

“Are you looking at…”

Shen Li nodded.

“I’m just looking around. I didn’t expect that there would be so many people discussing the matter.”

Zhao Xuan nodded.

“After all, both of these cars are quite expensive. And speaking of which, I know the owner of one of them.”

Shen Li was a little surprised.

“You know him?”

Zhao Xuan raised his finger and pointed.

“The one wearing a white short-sleeved shirt with a tattoo on his arm is Xiang Yao. I’ve seen him twice at a wine party before. I know who he is, but I’m not really acquainted with him.”

Shen Li understood and looked at Weibo again.

“This person seems to have quite a temper?”

Someone had posted a short video. Xiang Yao seemed to be the one who was in the wrong, but his attitude remained very arrogant and he was ranting away.

“Yes, I was there today. I wasn’t far away, and he…” Zhao Xuan paused. “Actually, he wasn’t like this before.

“His family is also in business, but only on an average scale. At most, he’s just a small driver. I saw him post this car on his WeChat moments before. It seems that he only mentioned it barely a month ago. It’s a pity that it was destroyed today, but he didn’t seem to be feeling much heartache. Moreover, he must have known that he would have to compensate the other party, yet he still scolded them very badly.”

It was obvious that he was not short of money.

However, with Xiang Yao’s family background, it was not enough to support him in this manner.

“I don’t know where he got his confidence from.”

Zhao Xuan shook his head before he suddenly thought of something,

“Oh right, Presiden Shen, you might not know this, but he actually used to spend a lot of time with Yu Cheng in the past.”

The grudge between Yu Cheng and LY was known to the entire Internet.

That was why Zhao Xuan mentioned it.

Shen Li raised her eyebrows.

“Yu Cheng?”

“Yes. Previously, he was trying to curry favor with Yu Cheng. After Yu Cheng was caught, even if he wasn’t implicated, he shouldn’t be…”

Zhao Xuan did not say the rest, but Shen Li understood what he meant.

Based on Yu Cheng’s current situation, everyone who had ever been involved with him was probably in danger.

However, Xiang Yao was behaving extremely ostentatiously.

This was indeed not right.

Shen Li thought for a while and quickly put this matter behind her.

“Let’s forget about that. Let’s talk about how “Chasing the Light” is progressing.”

Zhao Xuan handed over a set of materials.

“The budget for “Chasing the Light” may be going over. Take a look–”

Shen Li flipped through it and handed it back.

“Then we’ll increase the investment.”

The investment for this film was not big. Even if it was over, it would not be too much. There was nothing to hesitate about.

Zhao Xuan was not surprised by her decision. After all, from the very beginning, he knew very well that Shen Li had high hopes for this film.

“Yes, President Shen.”

Shen Li only stayed at Shengguang Media for an hour before she got up and left.

Zhao Xuan had originally planned to send her off, but she declined politely.

Hence, Shen Li took the elevator downstairs alone.

There were several companies in this high-class office building, and Shengguang Media was not considered very big in this place.

Of course, the profit margin was definitely the best among them though.

The elevator went down and soon reached the first floor.

The elevator door opened. Shen Li looked up and saw a young man.

He was on the phone and looked a little familiar.

Shen Li walked out of the elevator. The moment she brushed past him, Shen Li heard his voice.

“Second Miss Yu.”

Shen Li stopped in her tracks.

She remembered that this person was Xiang Yao!

And this “Second Miss Yu”…

Xiang Yao walked into the elevator with his back to Shen Li. At the moment, he was the only one in the elevator. In addition, he was in an extremely bad mood, so he felt no scruples about showing it.

He sneered and said in a nasty tone, “Aren’t you being a little too mean?”

Shen Li’s eyebrows twitched slightly.

Then, she pressed the brim of her hat down before turning back to look.

The elevator door was closed, and Xiang Yao’s figure was now completely covered.

No one knew what he said again.

Shen Li narrowed her eyes slightly.
