Chapter 37: Banquet (2)
Tonight was the first time Xin Siyue attended an event after crossing over. Her hair had been done by a hairstylist under Xin Qiancheng’s command for about two hoursーher long hair softly pulled up, leaving a few soft strands to lay on her shoulder.
Chen Sinan’s gaze stopped at her snow-white skin for a moment before he was greeted by the view of her slender back. The sight made him impatient.
What was she planning to do, dressing like this?
Gloom settled on his face as he received red wine delivered to him by a waiter. He pursed his lips, feeling the constant irritation that the surrounding environment was causing him.
He raised his head to scan the banquet’s front hall but was surrounded by people who wanted to win his favor before his gaze even landed on the resting area. As he finally made his way out, he was nagged by the owner of the banquet and stopped to speak for a bit.
Of course, the conversation was always one-way. Enthusiastic conversation would be met with Chen Sinan’s curt responses and occasional glances.
Chen Sinan took the chance to move elsewhere when changing wine glass. He passed through the crowd and finally saw her.
Xin Siyue had her head down, fixing her dress, but she wanted to take the time to look at her miserable feet.
What Xin Siyue really wanted to do was to take her shoes off and walk comfortably on the floor.
Considering her image, she suppressed her urges, but this didn’t hinder her from scolding Xin Qiancheng. Why did he choose such a long evening dress? It was all because of him that she wore such high heels. Anything but high heels! It was all Xin Qiancheng’s fault that she was so miserable!
She felt indignant. What if she sent a message to Xin Qiancheng, telling him that she wasn’t feeling well? After all, she had accompanied him and even helped him talk with so many men. Wasn’t she loyal enough already?
Xin Siyue thought it was an okay plan, so she lowered her head again to flip through her bag for her phone.
It took a while, but she noticed, quite tragically, that her stylists had found her a matching handbag. She never placed her phone in it.
Was she stupid? Did she actually forget to bring her phone?!
Xin Siyue felt so unprepared; she may as well have forgotten to look at the calendar before going out. Everything about that day was warning her that it wasn’t a good idea to go out.
She anxiously looked at the attendees passing by, attempting to find Xin Qiancheng, but her earnest gaze never fell upon him. Instead, she attracted the attention of Chen Sinan.
When Xin Siyue noticed a dark silhouette hovering over her, she looked over without a thought to suddenly find herself captivated by his handsome face. She almost threw her bag in surprise!
Shoot! Why is Chen Sinan here too? Why would he attend a boring banquet like this? But more importantly… why is he standing here?
Xin Siyue quickly snapped out of her trance as quickly as it came. She immediately dismissed the look on her face, and expressionlessly asked, “Why are you standing here?”
‘Quickly! Leave! Get out of there!’
She could feel herself pierced by the gazes of the young women around her. She didn’t want to stand out.
Chen Sinan was about 180 centimeters. While Xin Siyue sat, he only needed to lower his head slightly to see her exquisite makeup as he stood. Her cheeks were flush with a warm blush, and her fair complexion was delicate even without the makeup. She was even more moving when she decided to dress up.
Chen Sinan’s gaze stopped on her eyes, full of life .
