Yan Rusheng licked his lips and nodded in satisfaction. “Mmm, this is acceptable.”
Xuxu ignored his remarks. In a serious tone, she asked, “What is Paramount up to these days?”
Paramount had 30% of their shares; that was the most pressing issue they had to tackle.
She had no idea what Yan Rusheng and Su Yan were planning, but they seemed confident.
Yan Rusheng answered, “Jiang Shaomei came to find me a few days ago. She tried to add more of her people.”
He sneered coldly as he continued. “She can continue dreaming.”
‘How could he allow Jiang Shaomei to disrupt and take control of Flourish & Prosper’s management?’ Xuxu thought to herself. She interjected, “Is Su Yan planning to sacrifice himself and use himself as a bait to trap Xin Yanting?”
“For the sake of Flourish & Prosper, what’s wrong with a little sacrifice?” Yan Rusheng remarked with a playful gleam in his eyes, but he didn’t answer her question directly.
Xuxu heard him and raised an eyebrow. “Does that mean you will use yourself as bait too?”
She already had the answer as she knew Su Yan too well. He was a warm and positive person who didn’t enjoy vying with others.
But if he had to engage in a ‘battle’, he was bound to deliver extraordinary results.
Yan Rusheng feigned frustration as he frowned. “Wife, I’ve already said that my gun…”
Xuxu knew what he wanted to say, so she immediately shouted. “Stop!”
She pointed to the door. “The door is there, go now!”
She laid down and turned her back against Yan Rusheng before covering herself with the blanket.
This guy had no qualms throwing such casual and shameless remarks.
He always appeared so aloof and arrogant, and yet he could be so bold and unashamed in private. How despicable!
Dear Third Madam Yan, if your husband was so horrible, why did you fall in love with him?
Their lessons ended in the late afternoon. Su Yue and Bai Jing went back to their dormitory. Bai Jing began to pack her belongings.
Su Yue asked, “Bai Jing, are you going home today?”
Bai Jing nodded.
“Okay.” Su Yue pursed her lips in disappointment. “I thought you could go to my house tomorrow.”
Bai Jing managed a weak smile. “If I have nothing on tomorrow, I’ll go. But I have something on at home tonight.”
When she mentioned her ‘home’ , her smile became cold and bitter.
After she finished her sentence, she looked down again.
Su Yue heard her and it cheered her. “Okay, then I shall go home tonight too.”
It would be boring to stay alone in the dormitory.
“Okay.” Bai Jing nodded and didn’t speak any further.
Bai Jing had finished packing her bag and she bade Su Yue goodbye. “Su Yue, I’m leaving now.”
“All right.” Su Yue began to pack her bag as well.
She had more stuff to pack since she bought presents for her niece and nephew—not forgetting Xuxu as well.
Bai Jing watched her and reminded her, “Get your Third Brother to call someone to fetch you.”
She sounded like an elder talking to a child.
Anyone who was slightly more mature or sensible than Su Yue would naturally sound like a long-winded elderly person next to her.
“It’s all right. Don’t worry and go.” Su Yue waved her hands.
Bai Jing shut the door after her.
It was October and the weather was getting cooler. There was a light breeze which ruffled Bai Jing’s hair. She tucked some strands of her hair behind her ears as she walked towards the entrance.
A vaguely familiar man’s voice suddenly sounded.
