It was such a pity that a charming lady like her was already taken!
If only he had met her earlier!
Still, why was she with Gu Xingze now?
This time, without the birthday girl reminding him, Li Chengze mindfully gave up his seat.
As a person who was part of the high society in the capital, a true nobility like him would naturally know of the superstar's identity.
It was all because of this man's older brother, Gu Jinglian. Even if one did not know of the capital's mayor, they should know of that eminent figure.
Practically everyone in the high society knew of the Gu family. Li Chengze had had some dealings with that family's omnipotent head.
Therefore, for the sake of the older brother, he had to show Gu Xingze some respect.
He extended a warm hand to the superstar, who was staring at him from his peripheral view with no emotion. The man did reach out his hand to him, yet it only touched his for the briefest moment. His apathetic attitude had somewhat embarrassed Li Chengze.
He chided himself, yet he kept a proper smile on his face.
The superstar helped his companion to a seat. Wanting to satisfy his selfish desires, Li Chengze took the seat beside her.
He glanced at the lovely creature by his side. When her exposed fair arm accidentally rubbed against his elbow, he was barely able to contain himself!
Face to face with such a gorgeous lady, even her small and unintentional movement made him nearly unable to sit still.
The woman sitting beside Li Chengze could not refrain herself from eyeballing the superstar.
She was not a socialite of this class and was only a budding model. Having never attended a social event in high society before, her lowly position evidently did not qualify her to meet Gu Xingze in person. She only knew of his decade-long experience in the entertainment industry and his unreachable status as a superstar.
He was just a celebrity, yet he actually made Li Chengze voluntarily offer him his seat – he was definitely no simple character!
Hence, she lightly nudged Li Chengze's elbow and whispered a question to him. "Master Li, this Gu Xingze seems to be a person of importance?"
"Mm! His older brother, Master Gu, is a force to be reckoned with."
"Master Gu? Which Master Gu?"
All his attention was centered on Yun Shishi right now, so he had no patience for her queries. Flashing her with an annoyed look, he said, "How many Master Gu is there in the capital? He's the one that I told you before – one of this capital's four masters."
"I only heard of one Gu family that can exert influence in the capital with their mighty legacy!"
"That's them! Who else can Ye Minglan respectfully and fervently address as Master Gu? Obviously, it's that Gu Jinglian from the Gu family!"
The face of the man beside Li Chengze unknowingly drained of all color. "Ah?! He's… Master Gu's younger brother?!"
He lowered his voice as soon as he said that. "I thought he's just a celebrity! He looks really young. Is he in his early 20s?"
Sitting adjacent to them, Ye Minglan obviously overheard their little chit-chat and snorted haughtily. "Today, if it weren't for me, you two wouldn't even be qualified to sit with him over some drinks!"
Li Chengze hissed at her but did not refute her at all.
In his heart, he acknowledged Gu Jinglian as a powerful figure.
However, Gu Xingze was no more than an illegitimate child of the Gu family. Unacknowledged, he was, thus, inferior to his older brother. What was he being so cocky for, then?!
