Chapter 81: Short (2)
Wei Shenglan tossed the cat away and wanted to go help Ye Xi up, but he slipped and fell on top of her.
Ye Xi was caught by surprise and fell backward, hitting her back heavily on the ground. A crack sounded. It felt like she may have accidentally fell on a dry branch, and the poor branch was crushed by her.
Wei Shenglan subconsciously tried to steady himself by putting his hand on the ground, but it ended up on Ye Xi’s arm instead. Her arm was very slender, and her skin was extremely soft. He couldn’t help himself from clenching his hands around that arm, holding it tightly.
Ye Xi was just about to push him away when two people suddenly passed by the road. One was tall, and the other short. Both girls.
The two girls stopped under the street light.
Ye Xi had fallen behind the tree, and she just so happened to be able to see the two girls through the low branches of the small tree.
The two girls were: the tall Wei Shengliu, and the short Bing Yiyi.
One was the unattainable moon, and the other was the one who threw the check at her.
For such a combination of people to gather, it’s almost confirmed that they’re not up to any good.
Ye Xi reached up her free right hand and covered it over Wei Shenglan’s mouth.
She swears that she did not want to eavesdrop on them, but being discovered at this time will only bring up some less than proper rumors between her and Wei Shenglan.
Wei Shenglan wanted to get up, but he still went with Ye Xi’s actions. Having his nose and mouth covered by her hand, he could feel the slightly cool temperature of her palm, and he could also smell the grassy scent from when her palm touched the ground earlier. It didn’t smell bad, and instead, it even gave him a strange feeling.
“Why did you bring me here, Big Sis Liu?” Bing Yiyi’s voice was soft.
“Hah.” Wei Shengliu glanced at her and said coldly, “Stop acting. You think I can’t see through your disguise?”
Bing Yiyi was stunned for a moment. She said, “Are you going to tell me not to get close to Ah Lan? That’s impossible. Me and Ah Lan truly love each other. Even if he’s not the heir to the Wei Sheng group, and even if he’s ugly or short, I’ll still love him!”
Hey now, little moonlight. You’ve just stolen the female protagonist’s lines.
And what the hell is the Wei Sheng group?
Ye Xi was simply speechless.
Entrepreneurs in the novel world were rarely good at making up names, so they always just give them their own surnames, unlike the world she used to live in where the names of companies had deep meanings. For example, the company created by a certain entrepreneur called Wang. He named his company All Ways Lead to Rome( 条条大路通罗马, the real group is 大连万达), what a profound name.
However, with the Wei Sheng group having taken advantage of the surname, it now sounded a bit like a relatively fancy scientific research group.
After all, saying Weisheng without the “Wu”(microorganism) sounds pretty weird.
From this perspective, wouldn’t Nangong Hai’s family be the CEOs of Nangong Group?
Tsk tsk tsk, it almost sounds like he’s about to go fishing.
At this moment, Wei Shengliu laughed and showed no response to Bing Yiyi’s words. She only said, “I don’t care how you think. I came to you today because I want to work with you.”
“Work with me? On what?”
“To get rid of Ye Xi that tricky woman.” Anger could be heard in Wei Shengliu’s voice. “She actually dared to refuse my check. Nobody has ever dared to refuse me. I want to make sure she regrets it for the rest of her life.”
No no no, I never refused it. You were the one who ripped the check yourself, okay?!
What’s more, what do you mean nobody ever dared to refuse you! Can you please not be possessed by a tyrant CEO type all of a sudden?
More importantly! If you’re going to discuss about doing something nasty to someone, can you at least do it somewhere where it’s quiet and safe? It’s easy to be overheard in this kind of place!
So were the thoughts of Ye Xi who was currently eavesdropping.
