Someone continued, “It’s someone else’s wedding. So what if you disagree?”
Yan Rusheng fixated his gaze on the little woman as she maneuvered through the crowd. As he listened to the incessant teasings, he placed one hand on his chest and the other hand was pressed against his forehead, his fingers gently stroking his temples as he broke into a mysterious shallow smile.
Gradually, he no longer paid attention to the conversations of the crowd.
Jiang Zhuoheng left the group of Young Masters and found Xuxu eating at a corner. He called out softly while walking towards her. He then conveniently leaned against the sofa that Xuxu was seated at.
He was holding a half-empty wine glass with one hand, and the other hand was casually stuffed into his pocket.
He stood behind Xuxu and looked down at the crown of her head, her forehead, and her pair of thick, curly lashes.
When Xuxu heard Jiang Zhuoheng’s voice, she raised her head to smile at him. “Ah Heng.”
The sullen look in Jiang Zhuoheng’s eyes vanished, and he also broke into a smile. “I heard that the event organized by Flourish & Prosper today was a success and all credit should go to you.”
“Don’t listen to hearsay!” Xuxu humbly responded. “The credit goes to everyone. I’m not fully capable of handling the event single-handedly.”
Jiang Zhuoheng smiled without commenting. He looked down and brought the wine glass to his lips and took a sip.
Xuxu couldn’t decipher what was on his mind.
She also didn’t know what else to say to him.
Suddenly, a chilly voice interrupted and broke their silence.
“Jiang Zhuoheng, you are always finding opportunity to be near to my wife. It’s time to rid of this habit of yours.”
Xuxu was speechless as she looked at the man who was storming towards her. She had the urge to strangle him.
Jiang Zhuoheng coldly sneered, “Can’t Xuxu continue being my friend even after she’s married?”
“Of course you two can still be friends” One could obviously hear a hidden meaning in Yan Rusheng’s response.
Xuxu feared that his malicious tongue would go out of control, and she swiftly averted the topic to stop him. “There are so many beautiful ladies in the company waiting for a chance to have a drink with President Yan. You should be out there to show your appreciation to your employees.”
Yan Rusheng flashed a devilish smile towards her direction. “You are the only one that I value.”
Oh my god! This fellow was too corny! Was he even Yan Rusheng?
Hearing the two of them bickering with each other, Jiang Zhuoheng found an excuse to leave.
After Jiang Zhuoheng left, Yan Rusheng sat down beside Xuxu. “What were you two chatting about?”
“Just because I left the office without informing you, doesn’t mean that you need to be overly anxious.” Xuxu gave the man beside her a side glance. “Please, stop it. I’ve never seen you this petty before.”
He knew that Ah Heng would be there, and he was afraid that she’d run into him if ever she arrived early to the venue.
Yan Rusheng wasn’t all that surprised that Xuxu could read what was on his mind. He asked, “Do you prefer that I don’t have any reaction when I see you in the company of another man?”
Xuxu knitted her eyebrows. “You are overreacting.”
All of a sudden, she recalled something. She swiftly took out an item from her little purse and passed it to Yan Rusheng. “This is your room card.”
As Yan Rusheng took the card from her, he asked, “Does this mean that you have a room all to yourself?”
“Of course.” Xuxu nodded as if she was stating a known fact. “I am also a high ranking executive of the company.”
The truth was when she was planning the room arrangements before, they hadn’t reconciled yet. Hence, she arranged separate rooms for both of them.
