Xia Ning moved her eyes away from her phone to the man who stepped out of the car.
Whenever she saw him, the first sight of his handsome face and cold charisma would always astonish her.
She had to admit that he had a unique and great look. A single glance from him would attract everyone’s eyes.
Seeing the slender figure approaching, Xia Ning spoke up, “I could have made everything clear over the phone. But since you wanted to meet in person, it might be more convenient.”
“What’s it about?” Qiao Yu stopped about 1.5 feet away from Xia Ning.
He was about six inches taller than her, so him moving closer brought a big shadow and covered her immediately. His smell was so close that she could breathe it, which made her very uncomfortable. She stepped back unconsciously.
“If your self-esteem was hurt because I left the apartment suddenly and you want to get back at me, I don’t think it’s necessary.” Xia Ning looked up at Qiao Yu with cold eyes but her face was calm.
Qiao Yu looked back at her and frowned. “Are you mistaken?”
Xia Ning sneered. “Am I mistaken? Qiao Yu, why are you doing this? You came to the set today and messed up with everyone’s pace, especially mine. Are you picking on me on purpose? I know my sudden leave upset you, but let’s talk about it. It’s nothing personal.”
Qiao Yu looked cold. “You are overthinking. Where you live has nothing to do with me. And I’m not here to pick on you. After all, I don’t have extra time to waste here.”
“Ha…” Xia Ning smirked. “If it’s really like what President Qiao is saying, it can’t be better.”
Qiao Yu looked at her cold face and said calmly, “Now that we are talking about it, why did you move away suddenly?”
Xia Ning darted a look at him. “Of course it’s because I didn’t want to see you. Don’t you understand this simple logic?”
Qiao Yu frowned slightly. “The next morning after you left, Enoch went to look for you. He couldn’t find you and cried.”
Xia Ning’s hand holding her phone tightened slightly. The coldness on her face looked like it was about to melt.
In fact, during these days of separation, she had also tried hard to not think about the kid. She also thought she could just let him go. But whenever he was mentioned, her feelings could not be held back at once.
“When you came here, did Enoch stay with your mum?” Xia Ning asked suddenly.
Qiao Yu saw Xia Ning’s heart was softened, and some emotion flew through his eyes. “Yes, ” he answered.
Xia Ning moved the corner of her lips. She looked at Qiao Yu and said with a smile, “You see, Enoch does not need me as his mother at all. So please, don’t mention me in front of him anymore.”
“What do you mean?” Qiao Yu darted a heavy look at the person in front of him. He frowned deeply. He did not like her smiling like this, as if there was nothing in the world she cared about.
Xia Ning smiled slightly. “Exactly what you heard. I’m just ruthless like this, which I learned from you. But there is no need for us to talk about it anymore now.”
Everything happened so many years ago. Being stuck in the past was never a good thing and her future could not really be affected by the past.
Qiao Yu looked at her with a cold face as if he wanted to find some other emotion on her face.
Xia Ning thought of something and continued, “Could you not go to the set? You’ve affected our progress too much.”
“I will not interfere with the contents of your TV show,” Qiao Yu said calmly. Stupid things like he did today, he would never do them again!
“Not just this.” Xia Ning threw him a look. “After your arrival, the NG times of our actresses have increased.”
Qiao Yu frowned. “Why do their NGs have anything to do with me?”
“Are you really dumb or just playing dumb?” Xia Ning smirked. “You must have been the apple of many girls’ eyes growing up. When you were at Cambridge, so many girls could not move at the sight of you. And you’ve got so many love letters. I don’t think you are not aware of your attraction to the girls.”
Qiao Yu darted her a deep look. “I did get love letters. But there was only one in my mind. I only saw one person stopping for me before. But in the end, she left. Why do you think so?”
