Rebirth of the Best Businesswoman at School - Chapter 1376
1376 Wife Gazing Stone
Qiu Jiahao sat down and sized up the Ji Group’s CEO’s office. Then, he smacked his lips and sighed. “Tsk, tsk. As expected of the Ji Group. Your office is imposing. It’s as big as my father’s three offices.”
Ji Haoyu smiled and said nothing. He walked over and handed the wine to the other party.
“Drinking in broad daylight?” Qiu Jiahao said as he took it. He sized Ji Haoyu up and asked with a frown, “What’s wrong? Are you in a bad mood?”
“No,” Ji Haoyu said. “It’s been a long time. Do I need a reason to drink?”
“That’s good.” Qiu Jiahao grinned when he heard that. The two of them clinked glasses.
“Is the old man’s body okay?” Qiu Jiahao leaned back slightly and asked Ji Haoyu.
Ji Haoyu nodded gently. “He’s recovering well. He’s also practicing Taiji now. His body looks much tougher. However, the doctor also said that many years of fatigue have caused him to suffer a lot of illnesses. He still has to pay attention at all times.”
“My father sprained his waist two days ago. He can’t get out of bed yet,” Qiu Jiahao sighed.
The Qiu family and the Ji family were family friends. The elders of the two families were also old friends for life. This was also the reason Ji Haoyu could play with Qiu Jiahao. The two of them could be said to have grown up together.
However, the old man handed the Ji Group directly to his grandson, Ji Haoyu, while Qiu Jiahao possibly could take over the Qiu family’s corporation only after his father retired.
The reason it was only a possibility was that Qiu Jiahao had a younger brother, Qiu Jiahang. He was also an outstanding child.
The two of them chatted about irrelevant topics and drank two glasses of wine. Ji Haoyu poured another glass, which made Qiu Jiahao raise his eyebrows.
“Something on your mind?” Qiu Jiahao asked softly.
After many years of friendship, Qiu Jiahao still knew a little about Ji Haoyu. His condition today seemed casual, but there was a fluctuation that others could not feel.
Since Ji Haoyu said just now that he was not in a bad mood, he must have something else on his mind.
Otherwise, it would have been fine if they had a drink or two in the company in the middle of the day. However, these three glasses of wine were too much. Ji Haoyu was not such an unrestrained person.
When Ji Haoyu heard this, he raised his eyes slightly to look at Qiu Jiahao. He curled his lips and chuckled but did not answer.
Seeing this, Qiu Jiahao couldn’t help but purse his lips. Just as he had thought, something had affected Young Master Ji.
However, there was no other reason. After knowing Young Master Ji for so many years, there were too few people and things that could affect him.
“Because of that…” Qiu Jiahao quickly changed his words. “Because of Jian Ai?”
Ji Haoyu held his wine glass. This name was suddenly said to him by someone else. Coupled with the subtle alcohol flowing in his body, Ji Haoyu was in a daze for a moment.
Even he had not heard Jian Ai’s name for a long time.
Taking a deep breath, Ji Haoyu put down his wine glass and stopped drinking.
His reaction was also an answer. Qiu Jiahao couldn’t help but sigh in surprise. He sighed, love could trouble Young Master Ji.
“Both of you are interesting. Less than two days after confirming your relationship, she left. She didn’t say where she went or when she would be back. She just asked you to wait.”
As Qiu Jiahao spoke, he looked at Ji Haoyu and curled his lips helplessly. “What surprised me the most was that you were willing to wait.”
A smile appeared on Ji Haoyu’s handsome face, as if his friend’s sarcasm sounded like sweet complaints to him.
Qiu Jiahao looked at Ji Haoyu’s smile and instantly had goosebumps all over his body. He thought to himself that he was hopeless.
However, on second thought, it was understandable. He had seen how much effort Young Master Ji had put into that girl back then. He even snatched her first kiss, right in front of him!
Seeing that Ji Haoyu said nothing, Qiu Jiahao said, “It’s been more than a year since she left. Do you really like her that much?”
Ji Haoyu nodded without hesitation. “I like her very much.”
Qiu Jiahao frowned and asked again, “You haven’t seen each other for more than a year, but you haven’t thought about letting it go? Not wait anymore?”
Ji Haoyu shook his head without hesitation. He had never thought about it.
Every time he thought of Jian Ai, there would only be surging longing and overwhelming memories. Those memories were good for him, making him unable to extricate himself.
Qiu Jiahao was speechless. Even he, a good friend for many years, had never thought that Young Master Ji would become a god of love one day.
Now, this love had transformed him into a wife gazing stone – someone who was bitterly looking forward to his lover’s return and did not waver at all.
To be fair, if it were him, he would not be able to do it.
“Do you usually contact each other? A call or something…” Qiu Jiahao couldn’t help but ask again.
Ji Haoyu finally answered this question. Ji Haoyu smiled and said, “We do, but not by phone.”
Qiu Jiahao was about to ask when the office door rang.
The two of them stopped talking and looked up. Ji Haoyu answered. The secretary pushed the door open from the outside. “CEO, an urgent international letter.”
When Ji Haoyu heard this, he instantly bounced up from the sofa. His face shone at the same time, and his aura instantly changed.
Qiu Jiahao looked at Ji Haoyu’s back in disbelief. He reacted and quickly followed.
“This is?” Qiu Jiahao looked at the letter in Ji Haoyu’s hand as if he was looking at an antique.
Since China’s development, very few people had written letters after the millennium, unless they were in a place where communication was very underdeveloped.
However, the CEO of the Ji Group received an international letter. From an efficiency and cost perspective, it looked like a joke.
The smile on Ji Haoyu’s face widened. He even waved the letter in his hand proudly. “Didn’t you want to know how we contact each other? This is it!”
“Ah?” Qiu Jiahao’s eyes widened when he heard that. He froze on the spot as if lightning had struck him.
After a while, he muttered, “This… This is a letter Jian Ai wrote for you? Damn, your method is too ancient. Why didn’t you send a pigeon instead?”
Ji Haoyu opened the letter and smiled. “This is the method she chose. It’s probably not convenient for her to use the phone over there. Anyway, I quite like it. Don’t you think it’s quite romantic?”
Qiu Jiahao’s expression was extremely interesting. Young Master Ji actually thought it was romantic?
However, what he did not know was that the romantic thing about the entire thing was not the matter itself, but the person who had experienced this with him.
Only with the right person would it be romantic.
“You’re writing for her too?” Qiu Jiahao quickly asked as if he had discovered a new continent.
Ji Haoyu shook his head. “She writes it. I receive it.”
“You haven’t replied once?” Qiu Jiahao was shocked again.
Ji Haoyu pointed out the address on the envelope to Qiu Jiahao and explained, “This is a fake address. She won’t be able to receive it even if I return it.”
