Even the Lame Got Tricked by Me Into Standing Up

Chapter 57 Gu Ye (ETL) Part 1

Chapter 57 He will have to rely on me to support him from now on Part 1

When Zhao Pengyu heard Gu Ye say that he could smell a stench from so far away, he asked with a wicked smile, "Do you have a dog nose?"

Gu Ye raised his foot angrily and kicked Zhao Pengyu under the table, "You want to be beaten?"

Zhao Pengyu felt the pain from being kicked and sucked in several breaths of cold air. He grinned and said, "It's so far away alright, even dogs can't smell it from this distance."

Gu Ye gave Zhao Pengyu a look of disdain and decided to let him realize by himself that people in his profession sometimes don't just rely on their noses.

Zhao Pengyu realized there was a problem and didn't dare to make a fuss. "I'm scared when you say that. Will I be able to continue eating here in the future?"

Gu Ye picked up another piece of ribs and said nonchalantly, "Let's talk about it later. It depends on fate."

Zhao Pengyu was curious, "Is there anything in the world that doesn’t depend on fate?"

Gu Ye smiled faintly, "Don't depend on your fate when you don't want to."

"Don’t you think this is a contradiction?"

"It's not a contradiction. You'll understand when you grow up."

Gu Ye clicked his tongue a few times and said with a profound expression, "Little friend, you still don't understand the hardships of the world and the dangers of the world."

Hearing that, Zhao Pengyu almost sprayed his mouthful of soup. He is already over 1.8 meters tall and Gu Ye said he hasn't grown up yet.

At this moment, Xia Xiang finally came over with a tray, "It's so hard to find you guys! There are too many people!"

Zhao Pengyu looked at Xia Xiang’s plate with a smile, "You also want to eat the ribs from the chubby Aunty!"

After Xia Xiang sat down, he took a bite of the ribs and said, "If I don't eat it now, it will be gone. I just saw that the new chef is already taking over the handover. He will come next Monday."

Finding that the two of them were looking at each other wrongly, Xia Xiang asked in confusion, "What's wrong?"

Gu Ye smiled and said, "It's nothing, let's eat."

Early on Sunday morning, Gu Ye got dressed, looked at his watch, and went out shortly before 8.00 am. As soon as he left the building, he saw the car coming to pick him up slowly approaching. The driver got out of the car, and it turned out to be the young man who delivered snacks to Gu Ye last time. With a very serious expression, he said, "Master Gu, President Yu asked me to pick you up."

Gu Ye got into the car with a smile, "Sorry to trouble you."

As soon as Gu Ye sat down, Yu Ze sent a message: [Got on the car yet?]

Gu Ye: [En, we’re in the car now, don’t worry.]

Yu Ze: [Come directly to my company and I’ll take you out when I’m done.]

Gu Ye: [En.]

Along the way, Gu Ye looked at the scenery and noticed that the leaves had turned yellow. Fallen leaves covered the ground, and another season came in the blink of an eye. Gu Ye looked at the time unnaturally, vaguely looking forward to it. Yu Ze came to look for him once a week which means he watched how the leaves outside the window changed little by little. Gu Ye wondered what Yu Ze was feeling at that time.

There was no traffic jam on the road, and Gu Ye arrived at Yu Ze’s company in an hour and a half. From a distance, Gu Ye saw a layer of purple auspicious clouds floating above the company, as well as the power of golden merit. Gu Ye curved up his lips, thinking that it was as expected from the Son of Heaven. With this merit and God's favor, he wouldn’t have to worry about the company not getting better.

However, Gu Ye is a little curious, what can Yu Ze do to accumulate merit? So he asked, "This brother, what does your company do?"

The guy looked shocked as if to say you actually don't know what President Yu does.

Gu Ye smiled sheepishly. He had never asked Yu Ze what he did. For people like him who first look at faces (appearance), then the person themselves before finally wanting to understand that person, there may be no more other than him in this world.

"We are making electronic products, such as robots, computers, and mobile phones. We seek development through technology. Not long ago, the R&D team went to Country M to participate in the World Robot Competition and won the first prize."

The little brother looked serious but when talking about the company, he proudly explained, "The youngest R&D staff in our company is only 17 years old. There is also a youth group, which the members are still in school. It is funded by President Yu. President Yu said the stronger the young, the stronger we will get. The wisdom of youth is the wisdom of the country. If we don’t train the next generation, there will be no one to take over whatever the previous generation does, which is useless."

Gu Ye curled his lips and nodded slightly. This is considered research that benefits mankind. The rare thing is Yu Ze’s intention to cultivate talents. Gu Ye's fingers subconsciously rubbed the watch on his wrist, his eyes getting brighter and brighter. To be honest, Yu Ze doesn't need to try his best to tease/flirt with him every day. As long as Yu Ze manages to get him(GY) to know him well enough, he will definitely fall in love with Yu Ze and want to take him home. Because this man is too good, everything Yu Ze does touches his heart.

When Gu Ye got out of the car, a few people with Western appearance happened to come out of the building. When Gu Ye saw them, he tilted his head and touched his chin, thoughtfully.

The young man explained, "They are also employees of the company. Do you have any problem with them?"

Gu Ye curled his lips and said regretfully, "I can't read their face's features correctly, my Master didn't teach me about western faces."

The corner of the young man's mouth twitched vaguely, not knowing what to say.

When Gu Ye came to Yu Ze's office, it happened that Yu Ze was busy. Gu Ye was not in a hurry, so he stood at the door and waited quietly. At the same time, he waved his hand to the young man, indicating that he should go and get busy with his own stuff.


"Shh!" Gu Ye smiled and whispered, "I'm not in a hurry, and I want to examine him carefully."

The young man was confused but left helplessly. Gu Ye stood on the side outside the door with a smile. In the gap of the door, he saw Yu Ze who was signing a report. The other party had a cold face and serious expression as he said, "Do this as soon as possible and get it on track within a week."

"Although I'm pressed for time, I will try my best to hurry up. President Yu, about the salary increase this year..."

Yu Ze frowned, "Isn't there a regulation to raise wages every year based on seniority?"

"But we have invested a lot of money in research..."

"Nonsense," Before Yu Ze could speak, Secretary Liu severely criticized, “Ensuring employee welfare first can ensure work efficiency. Stop putting the cart before the horse."

The man quickly said, "Okay, okay, I understand."

After waving his hand to let the man go, Secretary Liu said, "I'll find someone to teach him. If it doesn't work, we’ll let him go."

Yu Ze nodded, "En."

Secretary Liu was shocked, "Boss, you are very easy to talk to today and you seem to be in a really good mood today. Is Master Gu not here yet?"

Yu Ze looked at the other party with disgust, he talked too much.

When he found that there was no one else around, Gu Ye stopped hiding and knocked on the door. He looked at Yu Ze with appreciation and even a hint of admiration. No matter how you look at this person, he is full of good points. If he could just raise his EQ, it would be perfect!

Secretary Liu saw that President Yu's expressionless face suddenly softened and the corners of his mouth turned up the moment Master Gu appeared. Just as he was about to stand up to greet Gu Ye, he saw that Yu Ze had already stood up and came forward to greet him.

Secretary Liu stood up but thinking that there was nothing for him to do, he sat down. But at the next moment, he felt that it was not good to sit down while his boss was still standing so he stood up again. At this moment, he saw Yu Ze grabbing Gu Ye's hand. The two looked at each other and smiled. The scene shocked Secretary Liu into sitting down on the sofa.

Gu Ye raised his eyebrows and asked with a smile, "Did I delay your work?"

Yu Ze lowered his head slightly and said with a smile in his eyes, "No, there are 2 more reports. Let's leave after I signed them."

Then, an assistant arrived with the 2 reports and happened to see the pair standing at the door. The assistant's eyes widened in shock, not knowing whether he should go in or leave.

Yu Ze held Gu Ye's hand without letting go and glanced at the report in the assistant's hand, "Come in."

It was the first time that the assistant was treated so tenderly by the president. The assistant walked in mechanically and looked at Secretary Liu with a confused look on his face. Didn't people say that the president's wife is coming over to examine the company, he is actually a male?

Secretary Liu had a profound look on his face because he also hadn’t come back to his senses. He had never seen President Yu so happy.

Yu Ze read the reports and signed them. Then he picked up the coat hanging on the hanger, and turned to look at Gu Ye who was standing by the window looking at the scenery, "Go to my house or find a place to sit for a while?"

Gu Ye turned around and said, "Are you done for today? Then, let’s go buy some ingredients to cook at your house."

In Yu Ze's office, Gu Ye didn't see anything strange, and he expected that the other party wouldn't place any nonsense stuff in his office. Gu Ye planned to go to his house to search.

Yu Ze answered frankly, "I don't know how to cook."

Gu Ye spread his hands and said, "I can."

Yu Ze looked a little embarrassed and said bravely, "I will try my best to help."

It was only when Gu Ye arrived at the supermarket that he realized why Yu Ze's expression was so awkward. It was because this man who was so powerful in the business world had a living ability comparable to that of an idiot!

Gu Ye stood next to the shelf and asked, "Have you seen the star anise (八角*)? Get me a bag."

*Directly translated as 8 corners a.k.a Octagonal

Yu Ze frowned, "What is octagonal? I've seen hexagonal (六角*)."

*Directly translated as 6 corners a.k.a Hexagonal

Hearing that, Gu Ye was stunned. He walked around Yu Ze to get it himself and said, "Dear, the hexagonal you are talking about is a nut (screw)."

Yu Ze looked at the packaging bag with the word ‘Star Anise’ written on it in surprise as if he had never seen it before.

From then, Gu Ye already knew that this business elite had never entered the kitchen.

"How about some ox tail bones for some soup?"

Yu Ze couldn't understand, "Can oxtail be eaten?"

Gu Ye couldn't help laughing, "Yes."

After a while, Gu Ye pointed to the vegetables next to Yu Ze, "This small spinach is quite tender. Let's boil it to serve as a cold dish. The one next to you, get me two."

Yu Ze stretched out two slender fingers, avoiding the roots, and pinched 2 stalks.

Gu Ye doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry, "It's not enough. Once it's boiled, there won't be much left."

Yu Ze pinched two more stalks and placed them directly in the corner of the shopping cart.

Gu Ye held back his laughter and put it in the bag, "This has to be weighed."

Yu Ze looked confused, and Gu Ye just wanted to laugh. The other person's expression now is completely different from when he was in the company. In fact, Gu Ye had been mentally prepared for a long time. Yu Ze might not be very good at cooking, but after all, he had studied abroad, so at least he would not starve to death, right? Unexpectedly, he really didn't understand anything.

Gu Ye felt that his trip today was not in vain. He really got to know the CEO from many aspects. He is so handsome at work, giving people the feeling that he can support the world by himself, but in life...

Looking at Yu Ze's expression, Gu Ye couldn't help laughing and patted Yu Ze on the shoulder, "You are so cute! Hahahaha~~"

When Gu Ye laughed, Yu Ze's expression became even more embarrassed.

Gu Ye held back a bad smile and picked up a piece of ginger, "Do you know what this is? It's in all the dishes you eat."

Yu Ze raised his eyebrows and shook his head seriously, "I have never eaten anything so big and ugly."

"Pfft!" Gu Ye patted Yu Ze on the shoulder and laughed, "Yes, yes, I have never eaten such a big one too!"

Yu Ze asked helplessly, "Is it fun to tease me?"

"En En," Gu Ye nodded with a smile, "super cute."

Yu Ze shook his head helplessly, "You can continue to tease, but just wait, sooner or later..."


"It's nothing," Yu Ze's expression returned to normal, and he said seriously, "I didn't come into contact with these when I was a child. I went abroad in junior high school. This is my first time visiting a supermarket. I can learn from it later."

Gu Ye stopped laughing and comforted, "No need, your time is money. It’s like tens of billions every minute. Why do you have to go to the supermarket by yourself, right? I can understand."

Yu Ze earnestly promised, "I can really learn."

"No need, you're fine like this. Just make money." Gu Ye threw a bag of ribs into the cart. In his heart, he added - People with terrible life skills would be easier to trap and keep in captivity. Gu Ye didn't have the intention to find another person who was so pleasing to the eye anymore. Once he caught someone, he won't let go. Since Yu Ze dares to flirt with him, he will have to bear the consequences that will last a lifetime and never escape.

"Let’s buy some wonton skin and make some meat stuffing. I'll make some wontons for you in the afternoon and put them in the refrigerator. If you get off work late one day, just cook them when you're hungry."

Yu Ze looked solemn as if facing an impossible challenge.

Gu Ye couldn't help laughing and said, "I'll pack up the seasonings for you. You just have to put in a package of seasonings and 10 wontons in a pot, okay?"

Yu Ze's face became more solemn.

Gu Ye held his forehead and suppressed a smile, "Forget it, don't waste the ingredients."
