Tang Yuansi spoke slowly. From the tone of his voice, it sounded like something was amiss.
Yu Yuehan immediately stopped in his tracks and a trace of worry flashed across his face.
“What do you want me to do to help you?”
Yu Yuehan had known Tang Yuansi for a long time and was well-aware of the kind of person he was. Tang Yuansi wasn’t the sort to ask for favors from anyone.
Now that Tang Yuansi was suddenly approaching him for help, there must be something that had crossed Tang Yuansi’s bottom line.
“Don’t let Shangxin know that I was the one who had gone to save her today,” Tang Yuansi’s low voice spoke slowly and clearly from the other end of the line.
“…” Yu Yuehan frowned and kept silent.
In his mind, he recalled Tang Yuansi’s reaction after finding out that Shangxin had been kidnapped.
Tang Yuansi had used all the power and connections he possessed in order to find Shangxin, rushed to her rescue, and led his people in pulling her out of danger. Yet, he refrained from showing his face?
Now, he even wanted Yu Yuehan’s help to keep quiet about it…
Yu Yuehan’s eyebrows furrowed into a thin line as the tone of his voice grew more stern. He asked sarcastically, “Is it fun to self-harm?”
The person on the other end of the line did not speak for a few seconds. Then, he said, “We are not suited for each other. This ending is best for both of us.”
Knowing that Yu Yuehan would not decline his request, Tang Yuansi hung up the phone when he was done speaking.
On the other side.
Nian Xiaomu ran after Shangxin, who was running toward the backstage area.
She could see tears in the corners of Shangxin’s eyes, so she thought that maybe something awful had happened to Shangxin during the time she had disappeared. Nian Xiaomu wanted to rush into the lounge to find out more.
Before she could reach for the handle of the door, she was stopped by Shangxin’s manager.
“Supervisor Nian, she’s feeling a bit upset. It wasn’t easy for her to control her emotions up to now. Please let her calm down on her own,” said the manager politely.
Hearing this, Nian Xiaomu quickly grabbed her arm.
“Did someone bully her? Is she hurt? Didn’t you say that she was fine?”
“…” The manager was going to reply to Nian Xiaomu, but when she saw Yu Yuehan walk toward them, she hurriedly bowed respectfully.
Yu Yuehan looked past the manager and directly glanced over at Nian Xiaomu as he instructed, “Come with me.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…”
Her mind was filled with thoughts of Shangxin and checking in on Shangxin in the lounge.
However, she recalled that she had just made use of Yu Yuehan to kill time on stage and owed him a big favor. It wouldn’t be right to ignore him now, so she reluctantly followed behind him all the way to an empty corner backstage.
Yu Yuehan stopped walking and turned around to look at Nian Xiaomu, who was all flustered.
The product launch had ended and Shangxin had officially signed the contract with Sheng Da Science and Technology. There was no need for her to be so anxious.
It seemed like she really treated Shangxin as a friend.
“Forget what you heard from my assistant today.” As Yu Yuehan looked fixedly at her and spoke, he leaned against the wall with both hands in his pockets.
It was like a casual chat.
“What?” Nian Xiaomu felt slightly taken aback.
She did not seem to understand what he meant with his words and was in a daze for a few seconds before she lifted her head to look at him.
“Regarding Shangxin’s abduction today, I was the one who located her and informed her manager to bring people to save her. Do you understand?” Yu Yuehan took his right hand out of his pocket and held Nian Xiaomu’s delicate chin with his slender fingers as he leaned closer toward her.
They stood very close together.
Nian Xiaomu blinked in surprise as she looked at his long and dark eyelashes that appeared even prettier than a girl’s.
She could feel his warm breath against her face. The faint peppermint scent felt so domineering and alluring to her senses.
