After she said that, Lin Xin did not give any chance for Gu Mingzhe to decline. She said to Ye Mengxi, “Mengxi, get someone to find a table for four in a quiet place.”
Ye Mengxi looked at Xue Miqi, then opened her mouth and ordered. “Miqi, get me a table for four somewhere nice and secluded.”
Xue Miqi, ‘Damn it. She’s treating me like a servant.’
As Ye Mengxi was ordering Xue Miqi, Gu Mingzhe hinted at his assistant from not far away.
The assistant walked over and took out a card from his bag. Then, he handed it over to Lin Xin.
Before Lin Xin could come back to her senses, Gu Mingzhe said, “Aunty Lin, this is my assistant, Lil Chen. You can send your company’s proposal to Lil Chen’s e-mail. I’ll consider the proposal at a later time. Excuse me.”
Gu Mingzhe was still elegant and polite, however, his tone was unmistakably for,. No matter how thick-skinned Lin Xin was, at this moment, she could only smile and agree.
Under Ye Mengxi’s reluctant gaze, Gu Mingzhe looked at Zhong Qianqian gently before sauomg, “Let’s go.”
“Alright.” Zhong Qianqian looked at Lin Xin and the pale Ye Mengxi. She smiled victoriously and left.
At that moment, Zhong QIanqian felt the same superiority Zhong Nuannuan always felt when facing her.
“Pah, who does she think she is? She’s just the niece of a nouveau riche. Does she really think she can amount to anything?”
“Qianqian, you’re so beautiful today.”
Zhong Qianqian’s heart was dead after being stamped upon by Chi Yang and Aiden. However, Gu Mingzhe’s praises lit her heart on fire once again.
“I remember when our family was leaving Jiang District five years ago, you were wearing a red gown and this same crescent jade necklace to the banquet. It’s fine if you laugh at me,but I was mesmerized by you even though you were 13 at the time. Now that it’s been five years, you look even more mature and beautiful than ever. It’s hard to believe that you’re even more appealing than back then.”
Zhong Qianqian was ecstatic. Even though she had been wearing white at that banquet, she had indeed been wearing this crescent jade necklace on her neck.
After all, she would wear this jade necklace to every special banquet.
Gu Mingzhe could still vaguely remember what she was was wearing five years later. Zhong Qianqian was overwhelmed by this fact.
After all, their family was nothing compared to the Gu Family.
“When you were at my house for the banquet, you only nodded and me and we did not talk. I did not expect you to remember what I was wearing five years later.”
Gu Mingzhe could not help but chuckle. His voice was soothing, matching his elegant and refined demeanor.
“I can guess you must have complained about me at that time based on what you just said.”
Zhong Qianqian pouted her red lips. “How could we dare to complain about aristocrats like you?”
Gu Mingzhe laughed again.
“Actually I wanted to talk to you, but you know, 17-year-old boys are so bashful. I mentally prepared myself the entire day, but in the end, I still did not have the guts to do so.”
“Hmph, I don’t believe you! You were so happy talking to those girls from Emperor District.”
At that time, she was jealous of those rich girls from Emperor District. Their existence signified the first time she had transformed into an ugly duckling, from her usual beautiful swan persona.
“It’s because I know them and I didn’t have any hesitations -that’s why I could talk to them comfortably. However, I keep feeling like something’s holding me back when I’m facing you. There were a few times when I wanted to talk to you, but I didn’t have the guts.”
