“I’m alright.” Xuxu smiled calmly and placed the cold beverage back on her forehead.
After applying it for about ten minutes, the swelling subsided but there was still a tinge of redness. One look and you could tell that it had knocked against something.
She raised her hand and glanced at the watch on her wrist. It was already past 9 a.m.
She sighed. “Don’t bother about it anymore.”
She mumbled to herself, turned on the tap and washed her hands. After which, she drew a piece of tissue to wipe her hands with.
She raised her head and saw from the mirror that someone was standing behind her.
It was a towering figure with a dark and gloomy expression. She was taken aback.
When did this person come in? Why didn’t she hear a single sound?
He almost frightened her to death!
Moments later, she regained her composure and her racing heart calmed down. She lowered her head and crushed the tissue paper into a ball and threw it into the trash can.
She turned around and walked past the man whose hand was stretched out before her.
“Wen Xuxu.” Yan Rusheng grabbed her wrist all of a sudden.
Xuxu froze and halted her steps. She turned her head and stared at the Yan Rusheng’s sharp eyes. Her palm-sized face left him vexed yet composed.
Looking at his gloomy face, Xuxu frowned in bewilderment. “Are you alright. President Yan?”
Yan Rusheng glared at the red patch on her forehead and asked coldly, ” What happened to your forehead?”
Was he showing concern for her? Xuxu curled her lips. One couldn’t tell if she was mocking at him or laughing to herself.
“I knocked my head by accident but it’s nothing serious.”
Her voice was distinctively cold and distant.
Yan Rusheng raised his other hand which was hanging loosely by his thighs and pinched her lower jaw. He lifted up her jaw and she had no choice but to look at him in the eyes.
A chilly breath covered her face. She knitted her eyebrows and glared at him, she did this all without uttering a single word.
To her surprise, Yan Rusheng also didn’t say a word and released her suddenly.
He turned around as if with no care and left with heavy steps.
But he hated himself for not being able to regard her as invisible, just like how she did.
Since they were young, they were hardly seen without the other. Yet, why is it that he was always the one who chased after her footsteps, and also the one who lost his heart to her, too?
He hated her nonchalant look and it’s almost driving him insane.
Seeing his figure disappeared, Xuxu spun around and turned on the tap, she started splashing water onto her face repeatedly.
It was not until she ran out of breath and the energy to cry, did she stop. She pressed her hands on the basin table top and lowered her head, allowing the water to trickle down her face.
Her mouth was wide opened, gasping and panting.
At the conference room.
After all the departments had discussed their matters, the PR department handed over their meeting documents to Xuxu.
Xuxu passed them over to Yan Rusheng. “President Yan, please take a look at this finalized proposal for the Christmas event.”
Yan Rusheng took the documents and after flipping through two pages, his expression darkened. “Chen Yuxi?”
He noticed Chen Yuxi’s name printed on the VIP list of the Christmas event.
Images of the commotion outside the Capital City Musical Theatre, that caused a massive traffic standstill, flashed through his mind.
He didn’t have a favorable impression of her.
Seeing his reaction towards ‘Chen Yuxi’, she subconsciously gripped her pen tightly in her hands.
She nodded her head lightly, “Yes.”
“Change.” Yan Rusheng closed the documents and flung it back to Xuxu.
Xuxu’s heart skipped a bit. She held back her emotions and looked at him calmly. “Why?”
Just because Chen Yuxi had offended Fang Jiayin before?
