Chapter 158: As Long As You’re Happy (1)
Chen Xiuqi spent 5.2 million yuan to purchase the Kashmir blue sapphire on the auction that night and the whole crowd was shocked. Men were amazed by Chen Xiuqi’s generosity while the women were envious of Su Yaya. They all felt that the sapphire must be the engagement gift that Chen Xiuqi was going to give to Su Yaya.
In Su Yaya’s mind, this was simply nonsense. Don’t just look at how well Chen Xiuqi treats her on the surface, she knew herself what position she was inside of his heart. As soon as his past love, An Yutong, returns, she would be beaten back to her original state. She understood herself very well and she had no expectations whatsoever in Chen Xiuqi’s marriage proposal to her. She had no expectations of receiving that Kashmir Sapphire either. Her heart was very calm, just like an ancient well with no ripples.
After the Kashmir Sapphire was taken away by Chen Xiuqi from the auction, the entire charity dinner came to an end. Chen Xiuqi didn’t feel like staying till the end, so, pulling Su Yaya along, he avoided the rest of the attendees and left from a side exit. After coming out of the hotel, they had a Lincoln limo waiting for them right outside. Holding Su Yaya’s hand, they got in the car together.
“Did you have fun tonight?” Chen Xiuqi asked Su Yaya after they had gotten into the car.
Su Yaya put on a pleasant smile and responded, “Mhm.”
How could she not? After coming out to see the world and watching him purchasing the Kashmir Sapphire for 5.2 million, she witnessed first-hand just how deep his love for An Yutong was. Hopefully when they get back together in the future he’d still be able to remember how good she was to him!
Chen Xiuqi saw the smile on her face and really believed that she was happy. With a smile, he asked, “Why don’t we turn that sapphire into a ring?”
Look, here it comes. Su Yaya thought to herself, if he turned that sapphire into a ring, then he’d be able to propose to An Yutong with that in the future. Sure enough, everything was developing according to the plot so all she needed to do was push it along.
Cheerfully, Su Yaya responded. “Sure, I can’t think of anything that would suit better.”
Chen Xiuqi was very satisfied with that answer. Sure enough, he received just the answer he thought he would and that made it even better. He was now really looking forward to that fateful day.
Su Yaya secretly peered over at Chen Xiuqi and saw the smile on his face, thinking to herself. He really was happy, wasn’t he? Yeah, now that he bought the sapphire, he already had half the deed done. If you had to ask her, then she felt pretty happy herself. She should be able to finish her job there and retire soon enough.
The two of them sat in the car, both with their own thoughts, thinking about their own problems. Their minds were on completely different ends. In fact, they weren’t even on the same line.
At this moment, Chen Xiuqi’s phone rang. He took out his phone from his suit pocket. It was Assistant Chen calling.
He answered the call. “Yes?”
Assistant Chen spoke on the other side, “President Chen, I’ve done the investigations as you requested. The first video that was leaked out on the forum was uploaded from a foreign IP address, but I hired a professional to check. He found that the address originated from the United States, the University of California. And, the brother of Sis Hui, the host for ‘Gourmet and Beauty’, studies there. I followed the trail and found out that her brother was the first to upload the video.”
“Sis Hui?” Chen Xiuqi paused for a while before recalling some of the events. That woman seemed to have even greeted Su Yaya tonight and asked her how she was doing. So was that the kind of woman she really was?
“And then?” Chen Xiuqi asked.
Assistant Chen told him, “After posting the video and the forum post, he hired a bunch of people to repost the entire thing with the video. As for the photos revealing your relationship with Miss Su, it was an internet celebrity who posted it. That internet celebrity seems to have some dealings with President Wang of Yongrong Foods Co.”
