The young man with scanty gaze looked at the blood-muddled face of He Lingxiang, who was lying on the floor. Gu Xingze then elegantly crouched beside him, held him up by the strip of his hair, which was heavily stained with blood, and asked in a hollow voice, “Is it painful?”
He Lingxiang heard him clearly and shook his head hurriedly.
“Oh? Is it not painful,” he smilingly asked, “or have I been merciful?”
The man on the floor could only gulp in fear. Should he nod or shake his head at that?!
Those around the two were currently shaking in fear. Gu Xingze, in contrast, did not realize how terrifying he was right now. His usually dignified and restrained self was nowhere to be seen, as his vicious personality had taken over and was now dominating all four corners of the room. Silence reigned among them; no one dared to make a sound!
He stood up and coldly ordered, “Answer my questions, understand?”
He Lingxiang vigorously nodded his head!
“Where is Yun Shishi?”
The man on the floor croaked, “I don’t know—”
“I want the truth.”
“Xingze… That Yun Shishi is the woman whom Mr. Mu has his eyes on. Give up! You can’t win against him…”
His voice trailed off, wary of incurring the superstar’s wrath.
“Oh…” Gu Xingze’s face regained its warm smile. “Go on; where is she?”
This sent a shiver up and down everyone’s spines.
They realized only then that some smiles could be fatal!
“She should be with… Director Mu.”
“How dare you?!”
Yang Shoucheng was outraged.
He was the head of Hong Kong’s entertainment industry and the president of Euro King Entertainment. He was standing at the pinnacle in Hong Kong a decade ago, and many movie stars made it big under his wings. Hong Kong’s film industry could still have a firm footing in Asia at present mainly because of him.
Moreover, Euro King Entertainment held a pivotal role in China’s film industry.
He glared at Gu Xingze; displeasure was evident on his face.
In this industry, artistes were merely money-making commodities and had no rights to speak.
In his eyes, no artiste should be outrageous, not even Gu Xingze with his superstar status.
He had once helped a newly minted artiste become an award-winning actor, who eventually turned into a diva to him. As a corollary, he ordered one of the actor’s fingers to be chopped off. Before his acting career could fully flourish, he was already destroyed by him.
He also had connections with the Hong Kong mafia, and this was among the reasons Euro King Entertainment had stood the test of time.
The young chap gave him a baleful look. “You have no rights to speak here.”
“What do you mean by that?! Watch this, then!” Gu Xingze’s remarks aggravated him into flashing out his trump card on the table. Everyone was shocked upon taking a closer look.
It was a gun!
He Lingxiang lost his fear at the sight of the gun. He looked at the actor provocatively. He was waiting to see what he would do next.
“Oh? Is Boss Yang trying to threaten me with this?” He jeered in return and kicked the man by his feet to the side.
“Hmph! Ignorant fool. Let me show you the real deal!” Yang Shoucheng firmly pointed the gun at him as he closed in.
“Oh, no!” He Lingxiang pretended to cry out in fear. “Gu Xingze, did you know who you have just offended? Boss Yang is the king—”
“Really? I’d like to see what he can do.” He flashed an insincere smile. His face was devoid of fear.
A loud gunshot echoed in the room.
