The private room sank into a weirdly quiet atmosphere the moment the manager spoke.
Nian Xiaomu twisted her head around and looked at the man seated beside her.
Hadn’t he mentioned just now that he wasn’t familiar with this place? In the end, the manager even offered Yu Yuehan a personal private room…
When Yu Yuehan met her probing gaze, he reached out and patted her forehead calmly. Opening his thin lips, he said, “It has been a long time since I was here, and I forgot about it.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…”
The manager of the restaurant was also someone who knew how to act according to the situation. He realized that he had said something wrong when he noticed the strange atmosphere and hurriedly added on, “It is true that Young Master Han has not been here for quite some time.”
He hesitated for a few seconds before inquiring carefully, “Young Master Han, do you still need to change to that personal private room?”
Yu Yuehan did not reply; instead, he twisted his head and looked at Nian Xiaomu.
She was already so intimidated just by an invite to dine at this place; if she were to sit in the personal private room, she might be so afraid that she would lose her appetite for the meal.
Collecting his gaze, he opened his mouth lightly and said, “No need for that.”
After he said this, he distinctly heard the person beside him let out a disappointed sigh.
Startled, he took a sideway glimpse at her and raised his eyebrows. “Do you want to have a change of room?”
Nian Xiaomu’s eyes turned starry the moment she heard what he said. Just like someone crushing garlic, she nodded her head vigorously and looked at him with a pitiful expression. “The ordinary room here is already so luxurious. I am curious what the personal private room looks like. Anyway, I am not footing the billI would take it as an eye opener and gain some experience from it.”
Yu Yuehan: “…”
Should he decipher the meaning of her sentence as: she was in a hurry to help Chen Zixin save money, but would not hesitate to spend Yu Yuehan’s money at will?
Raising his hand, Yu Yuehan covered her eyes and pushed her away from him.
“Get further away from me.”
He was afraid that he would not be able to resist it and would beat her to death with one tight slap!
Nian Xiaomu suddenly felt that he loathed her; she returned to her own seat in a huff and cursed in her heart while drinking her water.
It was true that the more well-off one was, the stingier one would be!
As Chen Zixin sat opposite her and witnessed the intimate actions between the both of them, he suddenly had a feeling that he was an unnecessary person here.
He stared blankly for a while. When he came back to his senses, he hurriedly struck up a topic related to work and chatted with Nian Xiaomu.
“Before I came back to the country, someone told me that Shangxin does not have a simple background; it was almost impossible to convince her to become a spokesperson. I myself had never thought of taking up this challenge, but you did it in the end,” Chen Zixin praised her in between smiles.
“If it were any other person, they might have given up on this a long time ago. Supervisor Nian, you are really capable.”
“…” Nian Xiaomu twisted her head subconsciously and looked at Yu Yuehan when she heard what Chen Zixin said.
She was hesitating if she should reveal that Yu Yuehan had actually contributed to the successful invitation of Shangxin as their spokesperson.
However, she shrank her neck quietly the moment she saw his icy cold face and looked at Chen Zixin. “Actually, Shangxin is not someone who is hard to get along with. The rumors out there were simply too exaggerated. She is very beautiful and has a very gentle character.”
“Gentle?” Chen Zixin looked at her in slight astonishment. “This statement is poles apart from the rumorsI heard that an unarmed Shangxin beat up the few men who tried to take advantage of her.”
“That wasn’t her…” Nian Xiaomu suddenly stopped in the middle of her sentence.
Before she got to know Shangxin and like everyone else, Nian Xiaomu had originally assumed that Shangxin could actually beat up a few people without any weapons.
After she got to know her better, she was aware that Shangxin had learned some self-defense skills, but it was almost impossible for Shangxin to single-handedly knock down a few burly fellows.
She only learned after some questioning that the rumored story actually had another version to it.
The actual person who beat these men up was Tang Yuansi…
At that time, Tang Yuansi knew that Shangxin was going to enter the entertainment industry. On the one hand, he was strongly against it, but on the other hand, he couldn’t help worrying about her. As such, he protected her secretly behind her back.
