She had been wanting to have a good chat with him for ages, but their conversations would always end up the same way. A couple of minutes into their conversation and she would have run out of words or topics to talk about.
Zhong Nuannuan fell onto her bed. She placed her palm over her forehead, feeling as if her head was about to explode.
However, when her gaze landed on the gift box on the table, her heart softened.
Well, nobody was perfect.
Her Chi Yang was outstanding in every aspect possible, except for when it came to matters of emotion. That would not affect their relationship, would it?
He did not know how to hold a casual conversation, so she would just have to put in more work to talk to him! It was as simple as that, was it not?
A smile tugged at her lips once again. Basking in the warm afternoon sun, she fell asleep.
Although it had been such a short conversation, she felt extremely drained now. She needed to rest and re-energize herself.
After Chi Yang had hung up the phone, he quickly switched on the air conditioner in his office.
He unbuttoned his collar and reached to touch his neck to find that he was completely drenched in sweat. In fact, he was sweating more than he usually did after his 20-kilometer jogs, with weights too!
When Song Qing entered the room, he was greeted with an overwhelmed-looking Chi Yang who was wiping away his sweat.
“What’s the matter?”
“This is the latest drill report.”
“Just leave it here.”
Seeing that Song Qing was still dawdling in his office, Chi Yang looked at him. “Is there something else?”
“Cough, cough Boss, are you okay?”
“Yeah, I’m fine.”
“Your old man Is everything alright?”
“…” Why was he drenched in sweat then?
Something was obviously going on!
“Is something going on with you? If you tell me, perhaps I can try and help.” Seeing Song Qing struggling with his words, Chi Yang thought that he was facing a problem and offered to help his subordinate resolve it.
‘I think I should be the one trying to help you here!’ thought Song Qing.
Song Qing was confused by Chi Yang’s abnormal attitude. His mouth opened wide, and he was stunned for a moment before responding, “No, everything’s fine. Boss, if there’s nothing else, I’ll excuse myself now.”
After all, everyone had their own secrets. Although they were brothers, it would not be good to continue pestering if the other person was unwilling to share.
Song Qing left the office, leaving Chi Yang alone at his desk.
As Chi Yang thought back to his conversation with Nuannuan, the thick layer of ice he had encapsulated himself in began melting from the corners of his eyes. Now that there was nobody else around, a small smile crept to the edge of his lips to form a handsome grin that was so bright and tender that it could melt the Arctic glaciers.
He used to be afraid of how she was repulsed by him and hated him, so he had never dared mention their engagement dinner. Therefore, the gown had been left in a corner all this while.
However, he had finally sent it out today.
Most importantly, his lady liked it very much.
Zhong Qianqian, who had just suffered a blow to her ego, rushed back to her room to phone Aiden.
She took deep breaths to calm herself down as she waited patiently for Aiden to answer the phone.
While waiting for Aiden to answer her call, she gave herself words of encouragement and said, “It’s okay, Zhong Qianqian. You still have Aiden! He’s the Vice President of Tianheng Holdings and the General Manager too! Chi Yang is just a soldier. He can’t even be compared to Aiden!”
No matter what sort of background Chi Yang came from, his status was nowhere near Aiden’s.
However, the phone rang for a long time and nobody answered it. Zhong Qianqian waited for a solid minute until the call ended itself.
Still, no one answered.
Her sixth sense grew stronger as Zhong Qianqian felt even more unsettled.
Perhaps Aiden was busy at the moment and muted his phone.
Yes, that must be it!
