Yan Rusheng knew what Zhao Zheng was trying to imply, and he wore a malicious smile. “You’re right. We’re all old classmates, after all.”
He paused for a moment before pressing on. “Since you insist on treating us, I shall not decline your kind offer. Let me give you a treat in the future.”
Zhao Zheng nodded. “Sure.”
“I’ll go upstairs and call my wife,” informed Yan Rusheng as he pointed upstairs. He then promptly left.
He didn’t say Xuxu’s name and used ‘wife’ instead. He had placed special emphasis on it, too. He sounded as if he were boasting.
Zhao Zheng glared at Yan Rusheng with gritted teeth. He couldn’t take it lying down as he clenched his fists.
Yan Rusheng reached Xuxu’s office and carefully opened the door without knocking.
Xuxu was sitting there reading some materials. Yan Rusheng watched her with his arms folded across his chest.
He was admiring the woman serious at work. He waited for her to notice his presence.
Finally, Xuxu realized that someone was watching her, and she glanced in his direction. Yan Rusheng curled his lips as he spoke. “My beautiful and charming wife. It’s such an honor you’ve requested for me to pick you up.”
He straightened his back and strode towards Xuxu.
“Stop showing off.” Xuxu saw it was Yan Rusheng and cast her materials aside. She began to tidy her desk. “Did you talk to Zhao Zheng?” asked Xuxu.
He had come with the intention of meeting Zhao Zheng. Both of them should have held a conversation.
Yan Rusheng nodded. “Yup. And he wants to treat us tonight.”
Xuxu instantly knew what Yan Rusheng was plotting against Zhao Zheng. She frowned and sternly reminded, “Abort any ridiculous ideas you have. Just think of a way to reject his treat. We still need to fetch Yueyue.”
“No, I can’t,” Yan Rusheng firmly refused. “Today I’m going to teach the four-eyed frog an unforgettable lesson about reality and limitations. This will teach him not to be so shameless.”
Xuxu grinned. “How can he be more shameless than you?”
Yan Rusheng furrowed his brows. “Wife, are you trying to undermine your husband’s authority to build others’ ego?”
He lifted Xuxu’s chin and bent to kiss her.
A kiss wasn’t sufficient and he wanted more. Xuxu didn’t let him get his way and shoved him away. “That’s enough. Stop being so mushy here.”
Her eyes subconsciously darted to the door and she got a shock.
Li Qian was at the door, watching them.
Xuxu felt strangely cold when she saw her. How long had she been standing there?
Li Qian walked towards them with a smile. “Sister Xuxu, I’m here to inform you I’m heading back home tomorrow. Can I apply for a leave for a few days?”
‘So she was here to apply for leave. Why did she have to stand there so quietly?’
Xuxu’s mind rapidly raced before nodding. “Sure, since we have little work these days, anyway.”
Li Qian smiled. “Thank you, Sister Xuxu.”
Xuxu smiled. “You may leave.”
“Okay.” Li Qian nodded and turned around.
Yan Rusheng watched her and gave a casual remark. “Your assistant is quite smart.”
His words had an underlying meaning.
Xuxu peered upwards at him. “Huh? What’s that supposed to mean?”
Yan Rusheng was about to speak when Zhao Zheng’s voice interrupted.
Yan Rusheng instantly acted and kissed Xuxu. He put a hand around her waist while the other held her head in place.
His kiss was passionate, domineering, lingering, and intense.
