The sudden question struck Nian Xiaomu dumb.
“I heard some rumors about you and Young Master Han and couldn’t help but learn more about the gossip…” Nian Xiaomu was so alarmed that she bounced up from the chair before Shangxin could finish her sentence.
“That piece of iceberg? Please spare me from this! I don’t want to have an early death.”
Shangxin was triggered by Nian Xiaomu’s exaggerated reaction and laughed out loud. “Is he that bad? Young Master Han is the number one rich young man in City H. In addition, he’s handsome and charmingthe number of women who wish to marry him are lined up from the start of the street all the way to the end of the street.”
“That ranking list certainly does not include his volatile and bad temper. Apart from that face of his, he has got no other merits. Anyone who has had any encounters with him would know…” The amount of bitter complaints seemed to be never ending as Nian Xiaomu talked about Yu Yuehan.
Just as she was gossiping happily, she suddenly felt a wave of cold air from behind.
Right after that, she noticed that there was something wrong with Shangxin’s expression.
Before Nian Xiaomu could ask her what had happened, Shangxin sent a message that said [Talk next time] and went offline at lightning speed.
Had she seen a ghost? What a hasty departure.
After she shut down the computer and turned around, she saw Yu Yuehan standing behind her with a darkened face while carrying Xiao Liuliu in his arms.
She suddenly froze in the middle of standing up from the chair.
Nian Xiaomu finally understood the meaning behind the final expression on Shangxin’s face just before she disconnected from the video call.
Shangxin was obviously wishing her good luck with that look.
Nian Xiaomu had been caught red-handed at the scene of the crime by the president himself while she was talking bad about him behind his back. What should she do?
Before Nian Xiaomu could think of a way to react to this situation, Yu Yuehan had already turned and left with a dark face.
“Young Master…” She ran after him hurriedly when she came back to her senses and tried to explain herself to him.
She saw that he had handed Xiao Liuliu over to the butler just when she reached the living room. After that, he turned around and walked toward the car that was parked at the entrance.
It seemed like he was preparing to head out.
Nian Xiaomu ran forward. Just when she was at a loss on how she should apologize, his gaze swept past her coldly. Then, he entered his car with an expressionless look and instructed the chauffeur to drive off.
He left right in front of her…
Nian Xiaomu lived in a world of ice and snow for the next few days.
There were a few times when she wanted to find an opportunity to apologize to Yu Yuehan, but eventually, she was left frozen.
The collaboration project with Sheng Da Science and Technology was officially launched right after they signed the endorsement contract with Shangxin.
Nian Xiaomu was kept busy by the projects on hand and did not have time to care about anything else.
“Confirm the guest list again and check if all of them are here already.”
“Someone check if the seats for the press have already been arrangedthe exposure to the media representatives for the product launch must not be low…”
“Remember to have someone overlook the site. Inform me if there are any issues…”
Nian Xiaomu was busily running around in circles first thing in the morning on the day of Sheng Da Science and Technology’s product launch.
As she looked at the guests who arrived one after another, she couldn’t help but to search for signs of Yu Yuehan in the crowd.
However, she did not spot him after a round of searching.
He might not be here yet.
Nian Xiaomu curled her lip. She returned backstage to the break room for the staff and poured herself a cup of water.
Just when she was about to drink the water, a colleague who was in charge of the guests rushed in and said, “Supervisor Nian, Shangxin has not arrived yet. I have tried to contact her manager, but my call couldn’t get through.”
“Perhaps she was delayed by traffic. Don’t worry, I have her number. I’ll inquire on your behalf.”
Nian Xiaomu placed the cup down hurriedly and brought up her phone.
The phone call went through immediately, but no one answered the call.
Before she could make a second call, she received a call from Shangxin’s manager.
“Supervisor Nian, bad news. Shangxin has gone missing!”
