Chen Shiyan did not come back. The crew needed to go back and rest, so they asked someone to check on her. The waiter came back and said Chen Shiyan wanted them to go first.
Since the bill was already paid, it did not really matter if Chen Shiyan came back or not. Everyone chatted casually and went back to the hotel.
Xia Ning and Lu Chuan were behind everyone. Lu Chuan saw that Xia Ning’s mind seemed occupied and asked, “What happened?”
Xia Ning shook her head. “Nothing.” After a few steps, she said suddenly, “Actually, I was tricked by Chen Shiyan tonight.”
“What?” Lu Chuan stood still and looked at Xia Ning. “What happened?” He shouted.
Xia Ning looked at him and said calmly, “Don’t worry. I just wanted to say I know where Chen Shiyan is.”
Lu Chuan frowned. “You should stay away from Chen Shiyan from now on. That woman is not a good one. The man behind her is also quite powerful.”
“She is a tough cookie and so am I.” Xia Ning’s face was cold. “What happened today has crossed the line.”
Lu Chuan nodded. “As long as you are clear about it.” Seeing her unpleasant face, he asked, “I heard you talking about President Qiao just now. Is he with Chen Shiyan now? I saw it on the set that Chen Shiyan wants to climb up a tall tree like President Qiao. You gotta be careful.”
Remembering that Qiao Yu and Chen Shiyan were still drinking together in the same private room, Xia Ning curled her lips and looked sarcastic. “What does it have to do with me if Chen Shiyan is into someone?”
Lu Chuan darted a look at Xia Ning and felt that she was not in a good mood. It might be because of Chen Shiyan. He tried to comfort her. “I know what you mean, but President Qiao is not just someone. If he decides to support Chen Shiyan, we really need to avoid them. Otherwise…”
“Who I like and who I choose to support, are not really decisions for Mr. Lu to make.” A cold voice came from behind them suddenly.
Lu Chuan was shocked. He looked back and saw that slender figure looking down at them. His good-looking face was emotionless and seemed extremely cold. His entire body looked cold too, with his eyes piercing through him. It was horrifying.
Xia Ning heard him and turned around as well. She saw Qiao Yu’s cold face and raised her eyebrows. Seems like the drinking was over.
“President Qiao…” Lu Chuan said hesitantly. He did not expect to be caught red-handed when talking bad about someone behind their back.
Qiao Yu darted a look at him and walked directly to Xia Ning. He looked at her and said in a low voice, “Did you get hurt on the wrist?” He reached out to Xia Ning’s hand to check.
Xia Ning was shocked and stepped back instinctively. But she forgot there were stairs behind her and stepped on air.
“Ah…” Xia Ning’s heart was jumping out of her chest. Just at this time, a hand pressed on her wrist and pulled her body up. Her head hit a broad chest.
She felt the same feeling not long ago, but this time it felt stronger.
Just as she got steady on her feet, Xia Ning stepped down a stair and wanted to get rid of that person’s hand. But the person in front of her did not give her the chance. He held her wrist tight, not leaving her any way out and his worried voice followed.
“How old are you and you are still so careless? What if you actually fall?”
Xia Ning was caught by surprise and looked up at the man in front of her. His dark eyebrows were twitching and his eyes were fixed on her with disagreement.
