Nian Xiaomu held her cell phone and further shifted her backside toward the side.
Pouting her lips, she refused to pay any attention to him.
Hmph! She was not going to speak to the person who had just called her a fool!
Yu Yuehan’s eyes narrowed when he sensed that Nian Xiaomu was throwing a little fit. Then, clearing his throat, he lifted his head to look at the chauffeur and instructed, “Stop the car.”
“… Are you getting out?” Nian Xiaomu instinctively asked.
The car had entered the area near the Yu Family villa, but there were neither shops nor people in the surroundings. Why did he want to alight from the car?
Immediately, he replied indifferently, “The one who’s getting out is you.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
As soon as he gave the order, the chauffeur stopped the car on the road and even unlocked the car doors.
Nian Xiaomu turned to look out from the car windows. Hearing the howls of the icy wind, it was enough to give her the chills.
If luck was not on her side and she could not flag down a taxi, she would either die from exhaustion or from the cold while walking all the way back home.
Was saving face or saving her life more important?
Nian Xiaomu drew a circle in her heart to curse Yu Yuehan silently. Then, she quickly turned around obediently.
Smiling as she spoke, Nian Xiaomu asked, “Young Master, did you ask me something just now? The wind was too strong, so I didn’t hear you clearly. Let me explain it to you clearly.”
Yu Yuehan: “…”
Although Yu Yuehan could tell from Nian Xiaomu’s fawning face that she was trying to win his favor, his lips could not help but curl upward.
Nian Xiaomu saw that there were changes in his emotions and hurriedly told the chauffeur to resume driving. Then, she continued, “Actually it’s nothing. President Chen Jr. asked me if I could make it to the department meal…”
Before she could finish what she wanted say, she could sense a gust of chilly air sweep past her.
It sent her entire body shivering!
Did someone roll down the car windows?
Why was it so chilly all of a sudden…
“When is the department meal?” Yu Yuehan’s eyes lowered, but they still appeared very calm on the surface.
“It’s tomorrow, and it’s not just our department. The staff from Sheng Da Science and Technology will be there too.” A thought struck her, and she muttered, “I wanted to ask Shangxin to join us too, but I don’t know why she hasn’t replied to my messages, and I haven’t been able to reach her on the phone either.”
As Nian Xiaomu spoke, she suddenly lifted her head and looked blankly at him.
“Young Master, do you know Shangxin’s whereabouts?”
“It’s not that she has to join us at the department meal, but I’m just worried about her.” Nian Xiaomu looked down at her fingers as a look of concern appeared on her face.
So she had been staring at her cell phone because of Shangxin.
Yu Yuehan’s long face softened a little.
Curling his long fingers into a circle, he flicked Nian Xiaomu’s forehead and said, “Stop over thinking it. Shangxin’s alright.”
“Really? Then she must have been too busy and that’s why she did not see my messages.” Nian Xiaomu did not have any doubts about what Yu Yuehan said.
Very quickly, she was smiling again.
Seeing Nian Xiaomu’s happy face, Yu Yuehan’s eyes narrowed.
He did not tell her that the Tang family had arranged a matchmaking session for Tang Yuansi and that he had agreed to it.
When Shangxin learned about this, she had gone to his house to look for him, but he had refused to see her.
After waiting for an entire night outside the Tang Family villa, she vanished afterward…
When it came to matters of the heart, outsiders should not interfere with them.
She could not help Shangxin.
Yu Yuehan looked away and did not continue speaking.
After being interrupted by Nian Xiaomu’s change of topics, he had forgotten to check with her about the department meal.
It was only during the afternoon of the next day, when his assistant delivered a document to his office, that this subject was brought up again.
“Young Master, there is a department meal today for our public relations department and for Sheng Da Science and Technology. Manager Wen asked me to check with you about whether you could make time to attend it.”
