Pinching the written address in his hands, Duan Qiushu took a deep breath and went to the book academy. It was located in a rather secluded area, but the air was filled with the rich smell of books. It was tranquil and refined.
Duan Qiushu was rather absent-minded as he recalled the dream he once had.
Yun Bixue sat by a window and noticed Duan Qiushu right away. Although he was wearing a worn-out shirt, he still looked clean. Despite looking despondent, he still looked studious. His black-framed spectacles concealed his gaze, but not his overwhelming aura of awe-inspiring righteousness.
Yun Bixue felt that it was unfortunate that Miao Zifu had failed to cherish someone like him.
"Sir, a table for...?"
"I have an appointment."
"Sure, which table would that be, sir?"
As Duan Qiushu walked towards Yun Bixue, she stood up. "Hi Mr. Duan, I'm Yun Bixue, the eldest daughter of the Yun family. I think I can spare myself from further introductions."
"Hello, Miss Yun!" Duan Qiushu nodded. The lady before his eyes was pretty and graceful, and even emitted a sense of capability and experience.
After exchanging greetings, they both took a seat.
"Mr. Duan, I only learned about your situation two days ago. As a woman, it's a pity for Miao Zifu. I know that you're a loyal and talented man, and that you've been interested in the video games industry these past few years. I can assist you in setting up a video game company and fulfill your dreams and aspirations. What do you think?" Yun Bixue knew that Duan Qiushu had been through a lot and it would be difficult for him to trust others. Therefore, she chose to get right to the point.
Duan Qiushu's heart quivered as his eyes widened in disbelief. After some hesitation, he calmed down. "Why did you choose me?" With a background like the Yun family, if they truly wished to establish a video game company, any other random choice would prove more advantageous. He simply couldn't understand it.
Yun Bixue poured a cup of tea for Duan Qiushu. "If I told you that there's been bad blood between Miao Zifu and me, and that I also admire your decent character, would that be enough of a reason?"
Duan Qiushu finally looked at Yun Bixue in all seriousness. "Miss Yun and Miao Zifu..."
Yun Bixue smiled faintly. "I guess she never told you that we were actually university roommates. Her tricks have placed me in many unfavorable situations. The bankruptcy of the Yun family business can also more or less be associated with her."
"Miss Yun, you're wrong. Even if you assist me, Miao Zifu wouldn't be troubled by it. It's because she never cared about me."
Yun Bixue shook her head in disagreement. "Mr. Duan, your words are incorrect. It's exactly because she seeks powerful individuals that she never liked you. You have to work hard to become someone successful to show her clearly that she was the foolish one back then. You can also show her that you're no longer someone that she can try to reach. In the future, you can still find yourself a virtuous wife and your parents can have peace of mind."
Duan Qiushu's heart was slightly swayed. He knew that the woman before him had only wanted to help him out of goodwill. "Miss Yun, aren't you afraid that I'll betray you in the end?"
Yun Bixue cracked up. "Mr. Duan, aren't you too insecure about yourself? For someone who could show such loyalty, his personality must be honorable too. I believe in you." As she spoke, Yun Bixue's eyes gleamed with trust and encouragement.
Finally, Yun Bixue managed to convince Duan Qiushu, and he agreed to follow her guidance. Although Yun Bixue had taken the initiative to help him, he chose not to betray her out of a sense of gratitude. He even wanted to leave the major shares and authority of his established company over to Yun Bixue.
"Miss, don't worry. I will not disappoint you!" After setting that prerequisite, he was confident that he would perform well. From now on, she would be his boss. After addressing her as such, their identities had been set.
