“…” Nian Xiaomu looked up at her with an astonished expression.
This was her first time hearing something like that from Tan Bengbeng.
Tan Bengbeng had a cold personality, but even if she did not like to interact with strangers, she also would not say something bad about someone else so readily.
Why did it seem like she seriously disliked Fan Yu even though she did not really know him?
Tan Bengbeng seemed to have realized what she had just said and felt a little strange as well. A ray of light flashed across her face and she explained, “Since you are already together with Young Master Han, it would do you no good if you continued to have unexplained relationships with other men.”
“Furthermore, the Fan Corporation is a competitor of the Yu Corporation. Misunderstandings might arise if the media got wind of it.”
As she said this, she lifted up her coffee cup with both hands and took a gentle sip.
The look on her face had regained its original calmness.
The gaze she directed toward Nian Xiaomu was no different from her typical gaze.
However, her words seemed to make sense.
She was totally thinking about the situation from Nian Xiaomu’s shoes.
Just when Nian Xiaomu wanted to say that she would be mindful of her behavior, her cell phone rang.
Her eyes lit up when she saw that the call was from a particular green-eyed monster!
His call came just when she was thinking about him.
There was no other appropriate time to answer his call but now!
Nian Xiaomu picked up the call swiftly.
“Where are you?” Yu Yuehan’s low and deep voice sounded from the other end of the phone.
It was merely three simple words, but for some reason, it brought about a tinge of inseparable love when he said them.
As Nian Xiaomu held onto her cell phone, the corners of her lips curved up unconsciously, and she said, “I am near the mall. I just finished shopping and bought a lot of things, but I can’t carry them any longer…”
Nian Xiaomu intentionally paused halfway through her words.
The actress within her had been activated; she couldn’t wait to put on the act of “the delicate fiancée who could no longer carry on walking and was paging for her fiancé to come over.”
Tan Bengbeng, who was sitting right across from her, nearly spat a mouthful of coffee on Nian XIaomu’s face when she witnessed this!
With this tactic, Yu Yuehan might just lose his fiancée if he still refused to come over and fetch her…
“Sit down and don’t move. I’ll come over and pick you up now,” Yu Yuehan replied swiftly.
He was about to end the call after he finished this sentence. However, Nian Xiaomu quickly interjected out of concern and asked, “Are you done with your work? If you’re still busy with work, then there’s no need for the trouble. I can flag a cab and head home myself.”
Even Tan Bengbeng could sense her hypocritical tone, let alone Yu Yuehan.
The person on the other end of the phone call stayed silent for nearly three seconds before he slowly said, “No need. I want to head over personally and see which actress has possessed my fiancée.”
Nian Xiaomu: “…!!”
Young Master Han, do you know what it means to “see through, but not expose it?”
This was the end of their love!
They ended the call.
As Nian Xiaomu thought of a particular someone who was currently on his way to pick her up, she grabbed ahold of her cell phone and smiled like an idiot.
Tan Bengbeng took in all of her reactions and shook her head in disgust.
“If every woman who was in love ended up like you, I would rather stay single for the rest of my life.”
“What do you know? This is called love appeal!” As Nian Xiaomu placed her cell phone on the table, she propped both of her hands on the table and shot a few glances at Tan Bengbeng.
Tan Bengbeng’s face collapsed.
“Are you sure that this is love appeal and not pretentiousness?”
“What’s wrong with being pretentious? What do you know about being in a relationship?” Nian Xiaomu slapped the table and stared at her with a resentful look, indicating her disappointment in not seeing any improvement in Tan Bengbeng.
“Being in a relationship means that one must drag another party into doing the same thing together when it could in fact be done alone.”
“For example, eating a meal. For example, watching a movie. For example …”
Nian Xiaomu’s eyes scanned past the shopping bags by their feet. Beaming with all smiles, she said, “Carrying the bags!”
