Chapter 117: You Were Born Lucky
Xin Qiancheng continued to ask, “Then why are you in the mood to cook this much?” He froze for a moment after finishing his sentence, then asked hastily, “Are you thinking about inviting Chen Sinan over to eat?”
“What does it have to do with Chen Sinan?”
“It’s a miracle that he didn’t follow you over tonight.”
Xin Siyue remembered Chen Sinan messaging her telling her that he couldn’t pick her up because of an important meeting, so he told the driver to pick her up. But Xin Siyue had a car herself so she didn’t want to make it troublesome. She messaged him back, saying that she could drive home herself.
Chen Sinan told her to be careful on the way and said that he had a dinner party to attend after the meeting. By the time it ended, it probably would’ve been too late.
Xin Siyue only replied, “Oh.”
Now that Xin Qiancheng asked, Xin Siyue explained, “He’s a bit busy.”
Xin Qiancheng did not give his opinion.
Xin Siyue also told him that she will go back to Shen Jin City tomorrow morning to see Jian Lan. “Do you need my help?” Xin Qiancheng asked.
He was just asking because he knew that Xin Siyue always wanted to handle everything herself. All this time, she never allowed him to interfere with her business.
As expected, Xin Siyue said confidently, “It’s fine, I’ll do it myself. I’ll find another way if it doesn’t go well tomorrow.
Chen Sinan went to find her the next morning and sent her a message telling her that he will wait for down stairs, but she still hadn’t responded in a long time. He rang the bell; upon recognizing his voice, Xin Qiancheng replied without opening the door, “She went to work.”
Chen Sinan was surprised. She went to work early today?
He wanted to ask her out for lunch but she hadn’t responded to the message still. He could only call her directly.
Xin Siyue just met Jian Lan when Chen Sinan called her. They scheduled for 10:30, but Xin Siyue waited for a whole forty minutes to see her.
Jian Lan still had her theatrical costume on her. After she saw Xin Siyue, she apologized with a smile on her face, “Sorry, I thought I could go on break earlier, but then they added another scene, so I didn’t have time until now. Sorry for making Ms. Xin wait for such a long time.”
“It’s ok, thank you for taking the time to meet with me. This time…”
Before Xin Siyue finished her words, her phone rang. It was Chen Sinan. She picked it up to take a glance then she hung up.
But a few moments later, the phone call came in again. “Sorry, I’m going to answer a call.” Xin Siyue explained.
Jian Lan nodded and smiled.
The first thing Chen Sinan asked was: when do you get off work? Xin Siyue answered, “I don’t know.”
“Then give me a call when you finish. I’ll bring you out to eat.”
“Chen Sinan, I’m not in A City.”
“I’m at Shenjin City.” Xin Siyue heard the subtle tone in his voice before she remembered that she forgot to tell him that she went to see Jiang Lan. However, she didn’t dare to delay him. She said hurriedly, “I’m busy right now, I’ll call you back later.”
After Xin Siyue hung up the call, she quickly set her phone to vibrate.
When she returned, Jian Lan’s agent was gone and only Jian Lan was there. She was about to open the play script. Seeing Xin Siyue’s return, she said directly, “Weng Yinling is my boss.”
“Yes, I know.”
“And I also saw Chen Sinan’s press conference.”
“Heh.” Xin Siyue was a bit embarrassed.
“I think that you’re blessed.” Jian Lan said, “Of course I have no other intentions towards my boss’s son. I just think that it’s rare for a man to have the guts to confess his love to a woman whom he hasn’t won yet in front of hundreds of millions of audience. Plus, he has a considerable social status. Disregarding love, you are also a very lucky person. Everything has been going smooth for you — your family and career.”
“It’s seems so from your words.” Xin Siyue gave a faint smile. Everything she had now were given by this world.
“I’m not a lucky person. I was born in the countryside and I struggled for fourteen years in the entertainment industry to become the person I am today. Also, I need to thank the boss’s witty eyes for everything I have today.
“Yes I know.”
Jian Lan smiled and said, “So people like me don’t really have anything to say to people like you who was born at a higher starting point.”
