“Goodbye, President Luo! Let’s meet again next time” As Nian Xiaomu flattened herself against the window of the car, she waved goodbye enthusiastically at President Luo, who had already walked inside his house by then.
She only sat back in her seat after his silhouette disappeared from view.
Her face that was full of grins just a moment ago turned expressionless in the blink of an eye.
Nian Xiaomu only turned around and stared at Fan Yu after she made sure that President Luo could not see them. Then, she said, “I don’t care about the plans you are hatching. However, President Luo is an important client of mine. Don’t you dare harbor any wild thoughts about him!”
The business industry was akin to a battlefield.
She knew that the two of them would meet sooner or later the moment she heard that the Fan Corporation was going to enter City H.
As such, she wanted to get to know Fan Yu when she saw him at the industry ball.
She had wanted to get to know his personal character so that she could counter his every move.
Although she had indeed seen him in person, she couldn’t see beyond the facade.
Fan Yu was very gentle to everyone, and it seemed like he didn’t have any temper.
At the same time, however, an alienated feeling pierced through his gentleness
Anyone could get close to him, but none of them could spy on what was on his mind.
Nian Xiaomu prepared to push open the door and get out of the car the moment she finished speaking.
However, the car door locked just as she stretched out her hand.
She was slightly taken aback and turned around in astonishment to look at Fan Yu.
She had originally assumed that he would fly into a rage out of humiliation when he heard what she said just now.
However, all that filled her sight currently was a handsome face. With a slight smile lurking at the corner of his mouth, he didn’t seem to be a single bit affected by those words of warning which she had thrown at him just now.
All of a sudden, Nian Xiaomu had a strong feeling that she had silently received a punch on the face.
She felt so aggrieved that she could not utter a single word!
Fan Yu turned around and looked at her. With a gentle gaze accompanied by a mocking tone, he said, “The weather is so cold, and the sky is so dark. It wouldn’t be safe for a girl like you to take a cab. I don’t mind giving you a lift.”
Nian Xiaomu: “!!”
This was the ridiculous sentence that she had said just so she could get a ride in his car.
She never thought that he would use it on her so quickly.
Just when she wanted to decline his invitation, Fan Yu spoke again and said, “I have the responsibility to send you back since you made this trip down because of me. Just tell me the address.”
Even though he spoke in a mild tone, Nian Xiaomu could still detect an overbearing feeling within it.
Pursing her lips, she did not say anything further.
The car was on its way again.
Nian Xiaomu did not speak throughout the journey. However, Fan Yu did utter a sentence, saying, “I have collaborated with President Luo a few times while I was overseas. We were only reminiscing about old times during our meet up today.”
He seemed to be explaining things to her, yet at the same time, it did not seem like it.
After he finished his sentence, he swept an indifferent glance at Nian Xiaomu before he continued to drive silently.
They maintained this stance all the way until the car drove up to the entrance of the Yu Family villa.
There were finally some changes in Fan Yu’s peaceful facial expression when he recognized that it was the Yu Family villa.
A chink cracked open in his eyes.
It indistinctly revealed a dim ray of light.
Turning around, he looked at Nian Xiaomu, who was about to unfasten her seatbelt and alight from the car. After that, he reached out and grabbed on to her hand.
“Are you currently residing with Yu Yuehan?”
He spoke in a pressing tone. The moment those words came out of his mouth, he seemed to realize that his actions were lacking in manners and gave a slight cough.
“I was just curious. Rumor has it that Young Master Han does not lust after women and that no woman has ever had the chance to get near him. As such I was a little surprised.”
Nian Xiaomu swatted his hands away and unfastened her seatbelt. “What do you mean by the past and present? I have been staying here all along. What’s so weird about that? However, it isn’t the kind of relationship that you are thinking of Wait, why am I explaining this to you?”
Nian Xiaomu snapped back to her senses. As she flung the car door open, she alighted from the car and stood beside it.
“Thank you for sending me back today. However, if you have any thoughts of stealing my clients away, I won’t go easy on you next time!”
