Xu Weilai was not paying any attention to Zuo An’s current expression since she could not predict how he would answer. Her mind instead focused on how she would answer CEO Zuo’s question if he was insistent to get to the bottom of what happened in the room previous night.
Zuo An replied calmly, “Yes, she slept well last night in my arms. She doesn’t seem uncomfortable here too. You don’t have to worry about it, father.”
His answer certainly caught Xu Weilai by surprise.
She did not think that Zuo An would cover up and lie for her before his father. His words would clear all suspicion that CEO Zuo had on her.
CEO Zuo looked into Zuo An’s eyes after hearing these words of assurance from him. Zuo An did not look away, neither did he show any sign of backing down. A smile appeared in his eyes, “That’s good.”
Zuo Si and Gu Yu walked in after hearing that their conversation has ended.
Zuo Si’s attitude towards her father was much more casual compared to Zuo An’s respect and reservation. She walked into the dining hall without even greeting him, pulled a chair and nonchalantly sat down.
With her hand propped on the table, she held her chin and teasingly said, “Father, they are a pair of sweet couple. If Zuo An can’t sleep or was not comfortable staying her, Zuo An would definitely take an excellent care of her. There’s no need of for you to be concerned.”
Father Zuo turned and looked at Zuo Si, hints of dissatisfaction filled his face. His brows furrowed slightly, but instead of scolding her, his attention went to Gu Yu, who had just walked in with her. He smiled and greeted Gu Yu, “CEO Gu, it has been long since we last met.”
Zuo Si immediately redressed her father, “Father, why are you instantly bonded to Miss Xu and call her Weilai, but you address Gu Yu as CEO Gu? I’m about to be engaged to Gu Yu. Shouldn’t you treat him like a family, as one of us?”
Zuo Si seemed to always have her way with her father as CEO Zuo rectified his words immediately, “I’ll call you Yu then?”
Gu Yu nodded lightly and politely went forward to greet CEO Zuo, “Uncle.”
CEO Zuo invited them for breakfast after the small talk ended, “Sit down and have breakfast.”
Gu Yu sat down beside Zuo Si. Zuo An pulled out the chair opposite Gu Yu and invited Xu Weilai to sit down before he sat down in front of Zuo Si.
It had been a long time since Xu Weilai sat face to face with Gu Yu like this. When was the last time they did?
It was in the apartment they used to live together, where she cooked noodles for them both. He asked for a divorce after they finished that meal.
That was probably the most unforgettable and heart-wrenching scene in her life.
She didn’t expect that they would sit face to face again in such a situation.
He had another beautiful woman by his side, and she had a new guardian by hers. Wasn’t it ironic?
However, she still had one unanswered doubt from what happened previous night.
Who was the man that appeared out of nowhere and disappeared after saving her?
Was it someone who had happened to pass by and saved her? Was he someone she knew? Were they somehow related?
Actually, the first possibility was too low. Even if someone happened to just pass by, why would they risk their lives to save her? Therefore, the second possibility seemed more likely, and in this house, only Gu Yu and Zuo An had relation with her.
However, Zuo An seemed to know nothing about what happened, and that left with Gu Yu being the higher possibility.
Could it be him?
If it was indeed him, then the purpose of his visit would require some investigation.
After all, the props with the steel wires and the open windows in the guest room needed to be prepared beforehand. Otherwise, the escape route would not be so well-planned during the emergency.
