Ahh, the entire capital city seemed to know that he would attend old master Lu’s birthday celebration. This was such a coincidence!
Yan Rusheng sneered in his heart and asked nonchalantly, “Why is Secretary Liu looking for me?”
Secretary Liu didn’t expect to address him in such manner. His expression stiffened, but quickly lightened the atmosphere by laughing heartily again. “It’s regarding that piece of land in Haicheng city. My superiors had given orders that the relocation matter must be settled by the end of the year.”
Yan Rusheng smirked coldly. “I thought Secretary Liu is already the head of department.”
“Huh?” Secretary Liu froze with guilt for a moment. “President Yan must be joking.”
At this moment, Fang Jiayin walked over. Carrying a small pink purse in her hand, she walked with elegant steps even in her high heels.
When they heard her voice, Yan Rusheng and Secretary Liu looked in her direction at the same time.
“Jiayin, President Yan and you were old classmates. Have a chat with him.” Secretary Liu pulled Jiayin over to Yan Rusheng and smiled. “I’ll go over there to greet some familiar faces.”
Having said that, he patted Fang Jiayin meaningfully on her shoulders.
Fang Jiayin remained silent and there was a faint smile at the corner of her smile. She looked at Yan Rusheng with her watery and vivid eyes.
She moved closer to him and asked softly, “Where’s Xuxu? Didn’t she come with you?”
After asking, she swept her gazed around the ballroom, hoping to catch a glimpse of Xuxu.
Yan Rusheng replied nonchalantly, “She’s upstairs.”
“Oh”. Fang Jiayin nodded her head and looked at Yan Rusheng again. “You were planning to go up and look for her?”
Yan Rusheng nodded in response. “Mm.”
“Then go ahead.” Fang Jiayin smiled and replied graciously, “I’ll go and look for Lu Yinan and the rest.”
Lu Yinan and Ming Ansheng happened to walk over at the same time.
Fang Jiayin looked at them and grinned. “Young Master Lu.”
Lu Yinan and Ming Ansheng walked over to Yan Rusheng and Fang Jiayin one after another.
Ming Ansheng leaned against the handrail of the staircase, facing Fang Jiayin and examined her from head to toe. There was a smile on his face, but it wasn’t genuine.
“Miss Fang, what a coincidence.”
He was different from Lu Yinan. He took over his family business right after his graduation. The people he had met, the things that he had gone through, and the social circle that he was in touch with were more complicated. His thoughts were definitely more scheming than Lu Yinan’s.
Fang Jiayin’s sudden appearance had turned the harmonious relationship between Yan Rusheng and Xuxu upside down. Although it appeared to be a coincidence and that her life had also been constantly bothered by the public and media since then, somehow, he sensed that she wasn’tthatinnocent.
Furthermore, he was still baffled over the reason for Fang Jiayin’s sudden departure and for turning away from Yan Rusheng. Hence, there was an ill-feeling in his heart.
Unlike Lu Yinan, he wouldn’t let his guard down towards her.
“Young Master Ming.” Fang Jiayin and Ming Ansheng greeted each other lightly. Maintaining a smile on their faces, their attitudes were neither humble or arrogant.
Lu Yinan patted Ming Ansheng’s shoulders suddenly and said, “Just nice. We wanted to play mahjong but Third Yan wasn’t interested and we are short of one player. Jiayin, come and join us.”
Fang Jiayin waved her hand and rejected the suggestion. “I don’t know how to play mahjong.”
Lu Yinan stretched out his hand and held one to her. “We can teach you.”
Fang Jiayin smiled and shook her head. “I really don’t know how to play. Even if you were to teach me, I don’t think I’ll be able to learn it.”
“Miss Fang is so smart. You’ll be able to learn it fast.”
