Who the heck was worried about him? How shameless!
But, how did she know he did not drink? She couldn’t really say that it was because when he hugged her, she did not smell alcohol.
“If you drank that much, you would be in the hospital as well…” Xia Ning made up some reason, even though she herself would not be convinced by this.
But it was as if Qiao Yu made sense of it. He nodded, “You are right. I did not go to the hospital.”
Xia Ning felt that the air was getting weird. Why did she start talking about that?
“There is one thing that you don’t know. Other than Miss Chen, the others were not in the hospital just because they drank too much,” Qiao Yu suddenly said.
Xia Ning looked at him with confusion. What did he mean?
Qiao Yu was looking back at her. The dark eyes of his were showing some coldness. “Being drunk was just part of the reason. The other part was because they were injured. Beaten up.”
“Ah?” Xia Ning did not follow what Qiao Yu said.
Qiao Yu did not talk anymore. He took a look at the time and it was already past 5 pm. “I have an international conference at night and I gotta go. Remember to eat,” he said. Before Xia Ning could answer, he stood up to say goodbye to Director Li.
Xia Ning stared at Qiao Yu’s back and felt even weirder. Those young masters getting beaten up? Who dared to treat them like that!
No, there was one person!
Qiao Yu did not drink, because he did not want to. But those people drank without thinking about their lives. It must be they were forced to.
And they were beaten up and Qiao Yu was all good, which meant, everything was Qiao Yu’s order…
Xia Ning’s started to have mixed feelings. She took out her phone to search for more news about Chen Shiyan and the rest. She was able to find some photos. Although they were not very clear, she could still see clearly that the young masters’ faces were black and blue. Apparently, they were beaten up badly.
Turning off the phone, Xia Ning looked at Qiao Yu’s vanishing back. Why did he tell her about this?
Just at this time, Lu Chuan walked over and said to Xia Ning, “Someone was very good last night and beat up the rich young masters. Did you see the news? That was funny. Those young masters have always been very arrogant. They must have run into someone who had a tougher fist.”
Xia Ning darted a look at Lu Chuan and asked calmly, “Who did you think it was?”
Lu Chuan was surprised and looked at Xia Ning and said, “I think it should be President Qiao…”
Xia Ning stood up and left suddenly.
Seeing Xia Ning’s back, Lu Chuan was surprised. What was wrong with her? She did not look very happy. Did he say anything wrong?
The next couple of days, Qiao Yu came to the set occasionally. But he did not ask Xia Ning to teach him anymore. Instead, he went to Director Li straightaway, as if the conversation that day did not happen at all.
Xia Ning looked like nothing happened as well. But seeing the non-repeating food, she felt even more suspicious.
She found Wen Jing at once. “The food we have recently does not feel like J City cuisine.”
Wen Jing said with a smile, “Yeah, they are all the taste of S City. Maybe it is because President Qiao is here as well. Sister Xia Ning, you and President Qiao are both from S City. You must really like it as well.”
Xia Ning smiled and did not talk.
One morning, Xia Ning came to the set and found a bunch of roses on her chair in the rest area. She asked everyone and nobody knew who sent them here.
Everyone in the crew said it was from her secret admirer. Xia Ning smiled and gave the flowers to Wen Jing, thinking it must have been sent to the wrong person.
But for the next couple of days, there was a bunch of roses on her chair every day, all from nowhere. Xia Ning realized that it was not just some random flowers anymore.
