Chapter 146 Cocktail party
“This Gu Wen Qiang is really not a human being, treating his two daughters as tools. I don’t know if he’ll do something like that again after the engagement between Gu Qing Yu and Duan Xing Yuan got cancelled….”
“I don’t know, but with Gu Wen Qiang’s temperament, it’s really possible. I heard that Gu Wen Qiang isn’t anxious because Duan Xing Yuan seems to have injected capital into the Gu Group. Earlier, because of the incident caused by his wife and Gu Qing Chen, his company’s stock price dropped steadily and if it weren’t for Duan Xing Yuan’s injection of capital, his position would have been unstable…. But now that Duan Xing Yuan is engaged to another woman, I don’t believe his new fiancée will tolerate him cooperating with his ex-fiancee’s family.”
The netizens’ speculations was right on the nail. Gu Wen Qiang had been hopeful that even if Duan Xing Yuan got engaged to another woman or even got married, he wouldn’t necessarily abandon his daughter and had even wanted his daughter to be Duan Xing Yuan’s eternal white moonlight.
However he didn’t expect that ever since Elder Duan asked Gu Qing Yu to meet him at the Duan family home and Gu Qing Yu returned from the capital, Duan Xing Yuan really didn’t contact her anymore and the cooperation he had promised him didn’t take place. The Duan family even withdrew their capital from the Gu Group not long ago.
Causing his position to suddenly became unstable and his company was affected. It seems Duan Xing Yuan was really no longer obsessed with his daughter, so after being in a frenzy for a long time, Gu Wen Qiang finally decided to find a new fiancé for Gu Qing Yu after the news of Duan Xing Yuan’s re-engagement spread throughout S City.
“A cocktail party?”
Hearing Gu Wen Qiang’s words on the rare occasion that she had come home, Gu Qing Yu laughed coldly in her heart. It seems Gu Wen Qiang finally couldn’t resist anymore. It was just as well, she couldn’t stand Gu Wen Qiang any longer.
Gu Wen Qiang tried to touch her hair to express his affection and closeness, but Gu Qing Yu avoided him by pretending not to have noticed.
Not feeling embarrassed, Gu Wen Qiang continued: “Duan Xing Yuan got engaged to another woman today…. Dad knows that you must not be in a good mood, so dad wants to take you to the company’s cocktail party today to take a break and ease the pain in your heart. There will be a lot of handsome young men there today and they aren’t in the least bit inferior to Duan Xing Yuan. Dad hopes that you can forget the people you shouldn’t remember, find a new man, and start a new life.”
Gu Wen Qiang was really acting like a father, but Gu Qing Yu knew that his purpose was definitely not that simple.
So even though she knew this, she still said yes.
“I understand. Dad, thank you.”
She nodded her head obediently and watching as Gu Wen Qiang left in satisfaction, ridicule appeared in her eyes.
She would attend, because only after attending would she know what Gu Wen Qiang wanted to do this time.
After changing into her dress, putting on her makeup and jewelry, Gu Qing Yu followed Gu Wen Qiang to the party. It looked like an ordinary party, but Gu Qing Yu was uncomfortable, because the men Gu Wen Qiang brought her to meet looked at her with a certain inspecting gaze, as if she was a commodity on sale.
She finally understood. Gu Wen Qiang brought her here tonight in order to let these ‘Gu Group customers’ see her, the commodity.
“Miss Gu, would you be so kind as to dance with me?”
A young man held out his hand to her, a man Gu Wenqiang had just introduced. His father was the son of a major shareholder of the Gu Group and with this, Gu Qing Yu knew what Gu Wen Qiang was up to.
She shook her head and turned around to leave without hesitation, but the man frowned and pulled her hand.
