“What did you say? Who’s here?” Before Nian Xiaomu could speak, the surrounding colleagues asked in disbelief.
“Shangxin and her team have just arrived in our lobby and are on their way up. I called your department line, but no one picked up the phone, so I had to come here to inform you,” the receptionist pointed in the direction of the elevator, catching her breath as she explained to them.
Ding!The elevator door opened.
A svelte figure walked out from within.
She was tall and slim.
Her features were distinct and delicate, and her lips were a natural crimson red.
She was not wearing thick makeup and was not clad in outlandish clothes. Instead, her keen sense of fashion was apparent even though she had only matched a simple white top with ripped jeans.
It was really Shangxin!
Following behind her was her team of staff who looked professional and cautious. They stood close to her to prevent any unnecessary exposure from the public.
Everyone was stunned in the public relations department.
They watched blankly as Shangxin led her team forward, walked past the secretary who was in charge of welcoming VIPs, and stopped to speak to Nian Xiaomu.
“I’m sorry. We met with a bit of an accident on our way here. That’s why we are late.”
“… No, no worries.” A little spellbound, Nian Xiaomu stared at the person in front of her and replied.
She had thought that Shangxin was not going to turn up today.
Yet, in the blink of an eye, Shangxin had appeared before her and was apologizing sincerely to her.
“Can we start talking about the endorsement then?” Shangxin raised her head and swept her gaze past the other people in the public relations department before looking back at Nian Xiaomu.
“The meeting room is ready. This way please!” Nian Xiaomu snapped back to her senses and gestured for the secretary to lead the way.
Then, she walked in herself.
Inside the meeting room, Nian Xiaomu was finally able to calm down her nerves and take a good look at Shangxin.
She was very different from what Nian Xiaomu had expected.
Rumor had it that Shangxin was a cool and feisty girl who had been fearless since she debuted. In Nian Xiaomu’s mind, she had painted an image of Shangxin that had thick makeup and held a cigarette in her mouth, like an aloof member of a triad.
However, the person before Nian Xiaomu was elegant and graceful in her ways. Shangxin’s features were clean, exquisite, and appeared very amiable.
For some reason, Nian Xiaomu felt that she looked familiar…
“Have we met before?” Nian Xiaomu could not help but ask.
After she spoke, she felt that she might have been too abrupt and sounded like she was trying to make small talk. She wanted to explain herself, but saw that Shangxin had responded with a smile.
Nian Xiaomu was slightly taken aback.
Had they really met before?
Nian Xiaomu was about to say something when she saw Shangxin pull out a baseball cap from her bag and wear it over her head.
Nian Xiaomu’s eyes widened with shock.
It was the girl with the baseball cap that she had met twice at the event locations!
It was she who had helped Nian Xiaomu up after falling down.
Nian Xiaomu had not expected for her to be Shangxin because she had been wearing a mask and standing among the fans.
So it wasn’t that she had not been able to meet Shangxin at the theme park. Instead, she had watched Shangxin leave before her own eyes…
Nian Xiaomu stared at the girl before her and could not regain her composure for a long time.
“I’m sorry I wasn’t honest with you the past two times we met. Actually, I was waiting for someone…” Shangxin said as the expression on her face turned downcast.
