Chapter 111: Is She too Indifferent, or too Fearless? (2)
Xin Siyue carried a bouquet of roses that could block her face and didn’t dare to stay. She quickened her pace to her office. The moment she sat down, her phone revealed the caller ID as Chen Sinan.
Xin Siyue thought about it before she rejected the call and firmly blocked Chen Sinan’s number. She proudly opened her laptop when she got another call, this time, from an unfamiliar number. She hesitated before she picked up, “Hello, I am Xin Siyue.”
“Did you receive the flowers? Do you like it?”
“You–” Xin Siyue felt like he latched onto every opportunity. “I don’t like it so don’t give it to me in the future.”
“Usually when women say that they don’t like it, they mean that they like it.”
“I…Chen Sinan, I don’t want to talk to you about this. I’m going to hang up. Also, don’t call me anymore. I need to work.”
“If we’re going out for lunch together, I won’t bother you.”
Xin Siyue answered without hesitation, “I don’t want to.” She directly hung up after.
In the end, the phone rang again. Xin Siyue ended up shutting her phone off.
However, when she did that, it held things up. After half an hour, a colleague came over and urged, “Host Xin, Director wants you in his office.”
“Ah?” Xin Siyue was shocked. What did the Director want from her? She had seen the Director a little too much these past two days.
When she arrived at the office, the Director asked, “How come I couldn’t call you before?”
Xin Siyue cleverly turned her phone back on as she walked over. She smiled dryly and lied, “Sorry Director. I was charging my phone before.”
“Ok.” Thankfully the Director didn’t continue to ask about it. He delivered an invitation, “Designer Sheng personally delivered this invitation over. She’s in the conference room still and wants to invite you to be the host of her jewelry exhibition for her company next week. What do you think?”
Xin Siyue naturally didn’t need to think about it before she rejected this.
Sheng Wenyang had a strong mindset. She was in an awkward situation with her, yet she was still able to invite her to be her exhibition’s host? Did she want the two of them to dislike each other? Or was she planning to increase the popularity of the scandal?
No matter what she was planning to do, Xin Siyue won’t let her have her way. She slightly smiled and said, “Director, I don’t think I will have time. How about you see which colleague in the TV Station has time and let them go over?”
“Ok. Sheng Wenyang said that she just wanted you to host it. If you don’t want to, why not make it clear to her? It’s pretty to explain some things. Right? Host Xin.”
Xin Siyue smiled fakely and tugged the left corner of her lips up. She took the invitation and walked towards the conference room.
What is this?!
In the vast conference room, Sheng Wenyang’s slender fingers caressed the edge of the white glass. She seemed to be emptying her mind.
Xin Siyue closed the door after she came in. Sheng Wenyang suddenly snapped out of her daydream and said, “What’s Host Xin’s answer?”
“Thank you for the offer.” Xin Siyue said simply.
“If Host Xin is still holding a grudge against what I had said downstairs that day, I can apologize.”
“There’s no need. I am very busy these days so I can’t attend. It’s best if Designer Sheng finds another colleague.”
Seeing her determined attitude, Sheng Wenyang laughed and said, “I guessed that you wouldn’t agree.”
“Since you know, why did you come then? To increase the awkwardness between the two of us?” Xin Siyue sneered.
Who knew Sheng Wenyang faintly smiled and said, “I just want to say something. You like Chen Sinan but I also like him too. I won’t give up on him so I want to have a fair fight with you.”
Xin Siyue waved her hands impatiently, “You don’t need to fight me. I never thought of him in that way. I’m not interested in the two of you guys. Designer Sheng, if you don’t have anything else to say, I’m going back to work. Do as you wish.”
After Xin Siyue left, Sheng Wenyang tightly held onto the warm cup with her right hand. Her eyes darkened. She acted like it didn’t matter to her or did she have no fear?
Xin Siyue was too lazy to take notice of Sheng Wenyang’s thoughts. She had to hurry back to memorize her lines because she needed to record the program tonight.
When she was off work in the afternoon and worrying over where to eat, she received a call saying that they had her takeout. Xin Siyue shockingly went downstairs to sign the delivery. She noticed that the takeout was the dishes from a pretty famous Chinese restaurant nearby. She enjoyed the food there and ate there a few times with her colleagues. But the business was too good there so they needed to wait a long time for their food. So, even though she liked it, she rarely went there.
But who ordered for her? Chen Sinan?
Not only did Chen Sinan bring her lunch, but also an afternoon snack.
Xin Siyue didn’t know how to respond to her colleagues who were joking about her while eating the cake.
He wanted to emphasize his existence?
