Chapter 183: Lobby


Filled withindignation, Zhang Siyi clenched his fist: “Yes! He\'s scum!”

Pointing tohis phone, Gu Yu said: “See here, his purpose at the beginning wasn\'t topay you back, but to find a variety of reasons to remain in contact with you.The more you chat, the more familiar you become and thus, more willing to goout to eat."

Zhang Siyi:“…..”

Zhang Siyimulled it over then foolishly asked: “So how do we verify it?"

In order toexpose Bai Rui, wouldn\'t Zhang Siyi need to stay in contact with him? However,Gu Yu already exposed his true purpose. The last thing Zhang Siyi wanted was tospend time with Bai Rui.

Lookingdown at the screen, Gu Yu thought for a moment and then typed a message to BaiRui: "You want to take the thirty-five then just take it. Please use it fordinner. I have no time to go out."

Zhang Siyileaned over and saw Gu Yu\'s message. His cold and curt message changed themomentum of the chat. Heh-heh-heh. Suddenly, Zhang Siyi felt a little excitedabout it. (⊙v⊙)

After Gu Yufinished, he snorted at the phone and muttered to himself: "Over thirty-fivebucks…. keep dreaming! He would never go with you."

Witnessingthe possessiveness that Gu Yu unintentionally revealed, Zhang Siyi couldn’thelp but giggle a little. Even though Gu Yu was acting a bit childish over atrifle, he thought Gu Yu was really cute.

Leaningover, Zhang Siyi put his arm around Gu Yu’s shoulders and gently shook him: “Don’tworry. Even if he really asked me, I wouldn’t go.”

Gu Yupinched his cheek and smiled: “You were already being fooled. How can I restassured?”

Being an independentman, how could Gu Yu think he was so foolish? He stared at Gu Yu: "So, you don\'ttrust me?”

Instead ofanswering him, Gu Yu laughed. In retaliation, Zhang Siyi forcefully pushed Gu Yudown, straddled him, and pinned him down. Angrily, he repeatedly asked: "Youdon\'t trust me? Why don\'t you trust me?"

Suddenly,Gu Yu gave one fierce thrust of hips upwards there by knocking Zhang Siyi off.

Faceflushed, Zhang Siyi yelled out \'ahhh\' and braced himself for the fall. Caught bysurprise, he almost fell on top of Gu Yu.

Grabbinghis waist, Gu Yu prevented Zhang Siyi from fleeing. Peering at him deeply, hereplied seriously: "I trust you, but I too get jealous. Just like when you seeother girls talking to me and become jealous…. You are mine. Even when anotherman teases you, I can\'t stand it.

Zhang Siyi:“……” (o////o)

What’smore, after Gu Yu looked through the chat records and saw how long Bai Ruitoyed with Zhang Siyi for, he wanted to go straight to the man\'s face and punchhim hard. Of course, he wouldn\'t actually do that. The best way to deal withthat kind of person in fact, was to turn a blind eye and adopt an absolutelyindifferent attitude with them. Without interaction, teasing becomes senseless.

However, thistime, Zhang Siyi\'s classmate was also involved. Gu Yu knows, his warmheartedlittle fool certainly wouldn\'t sit by idle. In that case, the best course ofaction was to replace Zhang Siyi for all future interactions with this socalled \'perfect boyfriend\'.

Changinghis hold from Zhang Siyi waist to his hands, Gu Yu told him: "When next hecontacts you, no matter what, don\'t return his message. Come and get me and letme respond instead."

Zhang Siyi burstout laughing. He joked: "We really are each other\'s hotline! The girls arecalling me, and now you get to solve my problem with my accoster, Bai Rui!" Onething Zhang Siyi didn\'t fully comprehend. Why do girls constantly approach GuYu when he\'s gay, but the person to flirt with himself was a man. Does he looklike a delicate girl? (=_=)

Laughing, GuYu smiled at him and said: “Isn’t that good?”

Zhang Siyinodded with satisfaction: “It’s a great idea. But you just rejected himfor me, so what else is there to say? I don\'t think he will contact me again."

HoldingZhang Siyi\'s back, Gu Yu lowered him down to kiss him and said: "You wait andsee. If he is interested in you, he definitely will not back down. Although hewon\'t message you again tonight because if he did, then his intention would betoo obvious and arouse your suspicion.

Sureenough, after Gu Yu sent his text message, Bai Rui hadn\'t responded.

About aweek later, Zhang Siyi had returned to his desk from lunch at noon to see SuYuan’s portfolio and resume in his email. She spent the week gathering hercollection and only now, did Zhang Siyi have time to spare to look through it. Afterloading the documents in the computer, Zhang Siyi opened Su Yuan’s portfoliowith great expectation. After a brief look, he frowned. The portfolio was a lotworse than he expected.

It standsto reason that she would have more works in her portfolio since It has beenover a year since graduating. Under normal circumstances, projects are often displayedin order with the first work as the most recent and therefore the highestlevel.

However, atthe beginning of her collection, Su Yuan still presented her work fromUniversity. That is to say, she believed she hasn\'t worked on a design that hassurpassed her graduation project.

Seeingthem, Zhang Siyi thought she had sent him the wrong document, but when heturned over to the latter portion of her portfolio, he knew she was not wrong. Indeed,the projects Su Yuan took part in weren\'t worth mentioning. Being delegated toanalysis, modeling, and translation, her work at her job remained at the mostbasic level. Even the highest scoring design from their graduation was, inZhang Siyi\'s eyes, rough, riddled with problems and naïve.

From thepit of Zhang Siyi\'s stomach, a myriad of emotions welled up after lookingthrough her portfolio twice.

When hefirst starting working at Borderless, having to draw bathrooms and parking lotsincessantly, he complained to his friends about his work conditions. He thoughtGu Yu\'s training model was inconsistent with their foreign educationalbackground because when a designer encountered an engineering problem, it wasn\'tsomething they troubleshooted. More then once, he suspected he wasn\'t suited towork at the company.

Nevertheless,when he overcame these difficulties, now he could look back and see his ownshortcomings. It stands to reason that it\'s human nature to take the easiest pathforward. But, if he only ever worked on things within the scope of hiseducation, then he would never grow and develop as a designer.

Zhang Siyisighed and had to admit that Gu Yu was right again.

Believingthat Su Yuan will never take short-cuts with regards to her collection, ZhangSiyi thought she had done her best to show her current abilities. Unfortunately,perhaps in Gu Yu\'s opinion, she and a freshly graduated undergraduate weren\'tany different.

Zhang Siyiforwarded Su Yuan’s collection to Gu Yu and in the postscript sent a prostratedkneeling expression: "Please."

As heclicked send, Zhang Siyi felt the \'buzz\' of his vibrating mobile phone. Hereached into his pocket and took it out to look. At the top was a WeChatnotification: Vinci has sent you a message.

Looking atBai Rui\'s nickname, Zhang Siyi heart jumped into his throat. Gu Yu was rightagain!

Bai Rui:“Borderless design firm……. is the company you work for?”

“…….”While talking to Su Yuan Zhang Siyi remembered mentioning it when they met atlunch. Zhang Siyi assumed Bai Rui knew it from that time. Impulsively hestarted to type a response, but stopped. He just remembered what Gu Yu askedhim to do previously. Zhang Siyi erased his message - I just have to ignorehim!

In lessthan two seconds, Bai Rui texted him a photo. Staring at the screen wide-eyed, ZhangSiyi nearly fell out of his chair. The image was that of the office building lobbyand the Borderless name on the information signboard.

Fuck! Whyis Bai Rui downstairs?! (#°Д°)

Bai Rui:“Are you at work today?" [Smiles]”

Zhang Siyilooked around to find Gu Yu, but he and the director of the other design team,Child Labor, went out for lunch and weren\'t back yet!

He quicklytook a screenshot of Bai Rui\'s message and sent it to Gu Yu: “What shouldI do?”

Zhang Siyiwaited for Gu Yu\'s message, but none came.

Bai Rui: "Iwas passing by and wanted to give you something. Come down or shall I go up toyou?

Zhang Siyi:“………”

Zhang Siyi forwardedBai Rui\'s second message to Gu Yu. He was starting to panic: “He\'s coming!What should I do?" [Kitten Crying]

God damnit! Why isn\'t Gu Yu responding!?!?

How canZhang Siyi go downstairs to meet another man and receive a gift. In the face ofother people, he was still a proper straight boy!

After anxiouslywaiting for two minutes, Zhang Siyi couldn\'t stand to wait any longer so hecalled Gu Yu directly seeking answers. There came a ring from behind the glassdoor of Gu Yu\'s office…… Shit! Gu Yu left his phone in his office.

Frettingover it, Zhang Siyi broke out in a cold sweat. At any moment, Zhang Siyithought Bai Rui would actually walk out of the elevator and onto the officefloor. He grabbed the phone and called the front receptionist: "No matter wholooks for me, tell them that I don\'t work here!"

Front desk receptionist:“……”

Front desk receptionist:“Hey, Auntie Four, is the mafia on your tail?" (*^__^*)

Zhang Siyisimply wanted to burst into tears. Yes, it\'s like that! Ever since Gu Yudeduced that Bai Rui may be gay, Zhang Siyi thought of him as a demon. All theunwanted attention; Zhang Siyi wanted to avoid it at all cost.

Zhang Siyi: “I\'m serious, please! “
