The crowd fell silent the moment the question spilled out of Nian Xiaomu’s mouth.
An uproar ensued.
At this instant, all of the reporters that previously could still control themselves now rushed forward with all their mightthey were afraid that they would miss out on a word and fail to report on this breaking news!
Everyone knew that Yu Yuehan had established a name in the business industry at such a young age and was a publicly known genius.
He had a respectable status as well as a handsome and charming look.
Unfortunately, such an outstanding man did not want to be associated with any female charms.
Many were speculating if he was a gay.
The bubbles of this rumor only burst when he suddenly had a daughter two years ago.
However, even after two years had passed, his daughter’s biological mother still did not appear.
Numerous reporters had tried to squeeze their way through crowds just to interview him on his love life, but none of them had the guts to ask him about it to his face.
Nian Xiaomu’s question was absolutely good news for the media representatives present at the scene!
At that moment, not a single person gave a hoot about why Shangxin had not yet appeared. Everyone’s eyes were fixated directly on the stage where Yu Yuehan was; they were anxiously waiting to see if he would answer this question.
Nian Xiaomu had not expected that the question which she was using to hype up the atmosphere would have this kind of effect.
As she lifted her head and looked over in Yu Yuehan’s direction, she discovered that the expression in his eyes had darkened; he seemed to be suspecting her intentions when he frowned and faintly swept his gaze past her face.
After that, he cast sidelong glances at the crowd below the stage.
With his magnetic voice, he spoke with a pause after every word, “I would not seek death of my own accord.”
Nian Xiaomu: “!!”
Why had she felt that this sentence of his was directed at her? Was he implying that she was seeking death?
No no, it must be her hallucination.
Nian Xiaomu steadied her state of mind and, just like a gossipy emcee, continued replying to him with smiling eyes, “Judging from Young Master Han’s reply, you seem to be fond of someone?”
Boom! The atmosphere of the scene exploded at that instant.
Apart from the reporters, even the others present had their eyes all perked up when they heard that Yu Yuehan might be in a relationship.
They were very keen to know which lady had saved the galaxy in their previous life so that they could have the honor of receiving Yu Yuehan’s affection in this life.
“” Yu Yuehan’s expression looked indifferent, and he did not seem to be not bothered by the reactions from below the stage. However, ripples emerged from his eyes when he heard what she said.
He immediately fixated his stare on Nian Xiaomu.
He kept quiet for a very long while.
Nian Xiaomu: “”
For some reason, her heart skipped a beat when she met his concentrated gaze.
She changed the topic hurriedly when she noticed from the corner of her eye that the emcee at the other end of the stage was signaling to her. “We shall keep this question in suspense for now and hope that we will be able to receive good news from Young Master Han soon. Next up, let’s invite Shangxin”
As Nian Xiaomu finished her sentence, she dragged Yu Yuehan and walked down from the stage at once.
“” Yu Yuehan was slightly startled. Lowering his gaze, he stared at his hand that Nian Xiaomu was holding.
Shifting his gaze away, he gave up on the struggle and allowed her to pull him off the stage.
As the background music sounded from the runway platform, the lights on the stage became dazzling as well.
The lights and shadow overlapped, landing on Nian Xiaomu’s fair colored face; her curved eyes and eyebrows seemed to have a life of their own.
“We managed to get away with it at last. I will have an early death if I were to do this a few more times” As Nian Xiaomu looked at Shangxin, who appeared onstage safe and sound, as well as at the crowd that was greatly attracted by the runway walk, she patted her own chest and heaved a sigh of relief.
She only came back to her senses and loosened her grip hurriedly when she noticed that there was someone standing beside her.
Looking at the expressionless Yu Yuehan, she opened her mouth at once and started to explain, “I was too anxious just nowI did not mean to touch you on purpose.”
“Also, the questions that I asked just now were to fool the reporters. Young Master, you wouldn’t hold a grudge, right?”
