As the other party’s face was covered, she narrowed her eyes in curiosity and asked, “You are?”
“I’m Fang Jiayin.” Fang Jiayin removed her sunglasses and smiled at Jiang Qinglian before putting them on again with a swift motion.
By then, her face already caught the attention of the public and had become the butt of criticism. Hence, if she didn’t properly disguise herself, people could recognize her.
But with her current disguise, no one could recognize her even if she was being photographed.
It startled Jiang Qinglian after hearing Fang Jiayin’s self-introduction. She stood up straight and the corners of her mouth slightly curled. Like a dignified and elegant noblewoman, she looked at Fang Jiayin and asked, “Miss Fang, do we know each other?”
She had read about her scandals on the internet. After learning she was the one who came in between Yan Rusheng and Xuxu’s relationship, she didn’t have a good impression of her. She even loathed her to the core.
She thought to herself how could there be such a shameless woman with the nerves to wreck Xuxu and Third Yan’s marriage.
Hence, seeing her face-to-face, she wouldn’t bother to be friendly with her.
Fang Jiayin knew that Jiang Qinglian would treat her with animosity, but she wasn’t in the least bothered by it. Instead, she smiled and replied, “I know that I’m no stranger to Madam Yan.”
Seeing a long queue forming at the security check counter, Jiang Qinglian grew impatient. “Miss Fang, please get straight to the point.”
She knew that it wasn’t by sheer coincidence that Fang Jiayin spotted her from amongst the crowd in the airport.
“I’ve long heard that Madam Yan is an intelligent, magnanimous, and out-spoken lady. You’re indeed well deserving of your reputation,” complimented Fang Jiayin with a smile.
Jiang Qinglian pulled a straight face but was all poised as usual. “Miss Fang, you can do away with such polite remarks. I’ve not appeared in the public or media, and neither do I have any contributions worthy of praise. So how did Miss Fang hear about me?”
Fang Jiayin smiled. “Madam Yan is being humble.”
“I’m not being humble. It’s true I’ve not appeared in any headlines before.” Jiang Qinglian raised her eyebrows and her mouth curled into a condescending smile. “Isn’t it?”
Fang Jiayin could understand what Jiang Qinglian had meant. Her expression changed, but because she was all covered up, no one could see the change in her expression.
She didn’t keep her on tenterhooks and said, “I wonder if we can find a place to have a word?”
Her tone turned colder than before.
Jiang Qinglian replied, “Miss Fang, we can talk here instead? I need to board the plane soon.”
Fang Jiayin stood on her toes and leaned over to Jiang Qinglian and whispered in her ears, “It’s regarding your second son. Do you think we should talk here?”
Her voice was mixed with a cynical smile.
The look on Jiang Qinglian’s face changed. She narrowed her eyes and looked at Fang Jiayin cautiously. “What do you mean?”
Fang Jiayin raised her voice on purpose. “Madam Yan wants me to say it here? Second Master Yan and Flourish & Prosper’s person-in-charge of the coastal county’s project…”
She hadn’t finished when Jiang Qinglian interrupted her with a low voice. “Stop it now.”
She looked around and spotted a cafe at the end. She whispered, “Let’s go over to that cafe.”
Fang Jiayin slightly nodded and remained silent while she trailed behind Jiang Qinglian.
Both of them entered the cafe one after another. Jiang Qinglian walked over to the counter and asked the service staff who was idling. “Is there a private room available?”
“Please follow me,” the service staff politely replied and nodded.
And they were brought to a private room.
