Chapter 76: Unexpected Visitor (2)
Despite the fact that Su Yaya’s answer didn’t really suit Chen Xiuqi’s thoughts, he didn’t think it was a bad answer. After all, it was work. It was the same as him playing along with someone to discuss business. He wasn’t as unpleased about Su Yaya and Yan Junyi kissing anymore.
“Quickly pack up so we can go home.” Chen Xiuqi patted Su Yaya and untangled her from himself. He rushed her to remove her makeup.
Su Yaya said wittily, “Wait a while for me.”
Chen Xiuqi lifted his right hand to look at the time on the watch. He said expressionlessly, “I’m only giving you ten minutes.”
It felt like he would be leaving her here if she didn’t come out in ten minutes.
Would he be that heartless?
Su Yaya felt like Chen Xiuqi wouldn’t be that harsh but her instincts told her that there was nothing a dominant President like Chen Xiuqi wouldn’t do. He was harsher than anyone else. She, a cannon fodder, wouldn’t dare to challenge him.
“I will be done instantly.” Su Yaya quickly walked over to the makeup table to remove her makeup.
Chen Xiuqi stood behind her. Su Yaya saw him looking at the time on his watch every now and then in the reflection of the mirror. It seemed like he was giving her a countdown. Would he really walk off after ten minutes?
This thought scared Su Yaya. She hurriedly wiped makeup remover on her face and almost accidentally wiped it in her eyes. She was even more anxious than going on a battlefield. When she finished her last step, she looked at the time and laughed. Haha. Thankfully, it was only nine minutes and ten seconds, it hadn’t been ten minutes yet.
“I’m done. We can go now.” Su Yaya held onto Chen Xiuqi’s arm and smiled. Her beautiful eyes were like the crescent of the moon. She was sweet and adorable.
Chen Xiuqi pinched her face. It was smooth and soft. He smiled and wrapped his arms around her waist. He said, “Let’s go.”
The two walked out the makeup room and even met Yan Junyi who was still standing in the hallway. His head was down and he leaned against the wall. He held a cigarette between his fingers and there were sparks jumping. Hearing the sound of the makeup room opening, he suddenly looked over to see Su Yaya and Chen Xiuqi walking out together.
Yan Junyi stood up straight and his gaze was on Su Yaya. He revealed a look of pity on his handsome face, wanting to say something but he didn’t in the end.
The moment Su Yaya saw his gaze, alarms rang in her heart. She was scared that he might say something bad under impulse in front of Chen Xiuqi. After all, he was just a side character in the original book who barely had any lines. The dominant President, Chen Xiuqi, could easily make him miserable. Out of personal feelings, she didn’t want to drag him down. She wanted him to peacefully live his life in the entertainment circle. She blinked her eyes at him anxiously and so quickly that there was almost a whiplash in her eyes.
Thankfully, Yan Junyi understood her. Seeing that she blinked her eyes at him, he knew what she was thinking. She didn’t want him to be involved in her matters.
He secretly sighed and didn’t say anything that would affect Su Yaya. He calmly said, “Goodbye.”
Goodbye. That meant that they would only see each other again if it was fated.
In the future, Su Yaya only thought of avoiding him. Her heart was really weak and couldn’t endure being frightened day and night.
“Goodbye.” Su Yaya didn’t say this with as much emotions as Yan Junyi did. She quickly said that and walked off with Chen Xiuqi.
On the way to the car, Chen Xiuqi didn’t say anything either. When they got in the car, Chen Xiuqi indicated for Uncle Zhong to raise the partition between them. Then he turned around to look at Su Yaya, asking, “What exactly is going on between you and him?”
Su Yaya knew that he was referring to Yan Junyi. Although he didn’t say anything he wasn’t supposed to, his emotions were clearly shown on his face. How could a smart person like Chen Xiuqi not be able to tell?
“What could happen between me and him?” Su Yaya forced a smile and said, “We were neighbors in our childhood and haven’t seen each other for many years. We don’t normally contact each other either. I was just a bit shocked when I heard we were actually going to collaborate together.”
Chen Xiuqi glanced at her and smiled. “Is that so?”
“Of course!” Su Yaya quickly responded and looked innocently at Chen Xiuqi. Looking at her innocent gaze, would he think that she was lying? Of course not! Heheh!
Chen Xiuqi tugged a smile on his face, accepting her response.
They were on their way home and the journey was peaceful. Chen Xiuqi didn’t probe about the matters regarding Yan Junyi. Su Yaya slightly sighed.
When they returned home, Chen Xiuqi leaned against the sofa and said to Su Yaya, “Go cook.”
Su Yaya hummed in agreement and tried to please him. “What do you want to eat?”
Chen Xiuqi said, “sweet and sour fish, sweet and sour pork chop, sweet and sour Chinese cabbage, sweet and sour eggplant…”
Su Yaya couldn’t hold it in and burst into laughter. She pounced on him and bit his lip. “How can you be so cute?”
