"Didn't you say on the phone earlier that you had good news to tell me?" Xia Jingyi asked as she drew his attention back to her.
"I am releasing a new alb.u.m," Tang Jingxuan replied with a smile.
"I knew our Luo Xing would become more and more famous."
Tang Jingxuan tried his best to maintain his smile, but as time pa.s.sed, he found it harder and harder to conceal his true feelings. Just as he almost buckled, Song Yanshu suddenly appeared behind them and said in a professional manner, "Luo Xing, Vice President Fang wants to see us in his office."
Tang Jingxuan suddenly felt like he had been saved as he said to Xia Jingyi, "I'm going to go to a meeting first. I'll talk to you later."
"OK!" Xia Jingyi nodded her head understandingly.
Afterwards, Tang Jingxuan turned and left. As he left, he thought to himself, he never imagined that the kind and pure Xia Jingyi would have another side to her.
Song Yanshu took one quick glance at Xia Jingyi and turned to follow Tang Jingxuan. Only after they entered the elevator, did she ask, "If you're unhappy, why are you hiding it?"
"Because I don't want to be blinded by jealousy and doubt. I need to find evidence first."
"Vice President Fang didn't ask for you. I simply felt like you couldn't hold on much longer. This is the difference between you and your sister. Ning Jie never shows mercy to those that hurt her, nor does she ever fear them," Song Yanshu said as she looked at Tang Jingxuan's back, "Her sensitivity to human emotions may be at a level that you can never catch up to. Perhaps you haven't noticed and perhaps as your manager I shouldn't be saying this to you, but this Xia Yuling really doesn't suit you."
Tang Jingxuan sighed.
"If you need any help, just let me know. I will think of a way to help you."
"Thank you," Tang Jingxuan nodded his head and left Hai Rui with complex emotions. On the way home, he was in such a daze that he almost got into a car accident a few times. He really wanted to know, if Tangning came across the same situation, what would she do?
In the end, Tang Jingxuan turned his car around and headed for Hyatt Regency...
As he arrived, Mo Ting opened the door for him. After seeing it was Tang Jingxuan, Mo Ting raised his eyebrows questioningly, but he did not stop him from entering.
Tangning's stomach had now developed a slight b.u.mp. So...as soon as Tang Jingxuan saw it, he pointed to Tangning's stomach and gasped, "Sister Three, you're..."
"I'm pregnant," Tangning replied from the sofa.
"Why didn't you tell me earlier?" Tang Jingxuan immediately went to sit down beside her. "When did this happen?"
Thinking back on what Tang Xuan did, Tangning's expression turned cold, but she still ended up telling Tang Jingxuan the entire story, including the reason behind her retreat.
After hearing the story, Tang Jingxuan punched the gla.s.s table in front of him in anger, "I never imagined that you'd experience so much in this time. Big Sister...no, she's not my sister! 'That woman' has done so many evil deeds in secret. Does grandfather and mom know about it? If not, I'm going to go home and tell them about it right now..."
"Apart from you and Sister Chen, everyone else in the family already knows," Tangning immediately held him back. "Plus, I may return to the household to do some cleaning up. You need to forget everything I've told you today and pretend nothing happened."
"I have my plans. Everyone knows how she truly is. She is the only one that thinks she's putting on a convincing act," Tangning said with a wise expression.
"OK then..." Tang Jingxuan nodded his head and calmed down. That's when he remembered the real reason why he had come. However, thinking about Tangning's current situation, he didn't know how to bring up the topic.
But how was it possible to hide his feelings in front of Tangning?
"You mustn't have come here for nothing. Tell me...what is it?"
Tang Jingxuan hesitated for a moment before he finally looked into Tangning's eyes and asked, "Sister Three, what are your thoughts on Xia Jingyi?"
"I don't know her very well," Tangning replied straightforwardly. "Why are you asking me this all of a sudden?"
"If...I told you I was dating her, what would you say?"
Hearing this, Tangning's expression changed...
"If you felt like nothing's wrong, then you wouldn't have come to see me," Tangning pointed out the problem. "Back when you were slandered for taking drugs, I already told you that the industry is not as simple as you think. If you've noticed something isn't right, then is there any point in asking for my opinion?"
Tang Jingxuan fell silent; he had nothing else to say.
Tangning understood that Tang Jingxuan was still young, so it was easy to develop feelings after spending a long period of time with someone.
If they were both honest with their feelings, then she would be happy for them. But, if someone was using Tang Jingxuan or hurting him, she would teach them a painful lesson.
"Sis...you know it's rare for me to develop feelings for someone."
"If the truth is what you think it is, then it doesn't change the fact that you've met sc.u.m. You are a member of the Tang Family..." Tangning said straightforwardly.
"...go prove it. Regardless of whether it is a misunderstanding or the truth, you need to clarify it first."
Tang Jingxuan nodded his head. He originally wanted to continue chatting to Tangning, but Mo Ting directly approached them to send him away, "Your sister needs to rest."
Remembering that Tangning was pregnant, Tang Jingxuan immediately nodded his head without refuting, "OK, I'll leave then."
Tangning wanted to laugh, but felt bad. So, after Tang Jingxuan left, she asked, "Can't you be a little gentler on him?"
"He came to steal my wife's time, why would I be gentle with him?" Mo Ting asked back.
Tangning couldn't help but let out a laugh, "I really don't know what to do about you..."
After leaving Hyatt Regency, Tang Jingxuan directly drove over to Xia Jingyi's apartment. Just as he entered her front door, he noticed her bedroom door slightly ajar and heard screams of help coming from inside. He immediately pushed open the door and found her so-called 'cla.s.smate' trying to steal her handbag.
"Luo Xing, you came right on time. Quick, restrain him."
As soon as the man saw Tang Jingxuan stretch out his arms, he threw away the handbag and escaped.
Xia Jingyi had received such a fright that she collapsed on the floor in tears.
"What exactly happened?"
"He's really just a cla.s.smate. He simply dropped by the agency to visit me today. But he ended up stalking me all the way home and tried to steal my stuff," Xia Jingyi explained.
Tang Jingxuan helped Xia Jingyi off the floor and led her to the sofa...
However, he did not try to comfort her. He simply kept her company until she fell asleep. Afterwards, he had a quick scan of the apartment and left.
She was being stalked, yet she still had the time to brew tea? When her apartment was broken into, wasn't her first response to retaliate?
Plus, he was well aware that she had returned home for quite some time. Why did he wait so long to steal her stuff?
Of course, there was still a possibility that the man had waited...
