Suddenly hearing the voice behind her, Xia Ning turned around and found out that the good-looking but cold man approached her. He was standing about a meter away from her.
Qiao Yu looked at Xia Ning and frowned a little. “You and Lin Nan…”
“What’s going on between me and Lin Nan has nothing to do with you,” Xia Ning interrupted him immediately.
“You think I will suspect you will fall for Lin Nan?” Qiao Yu asked.
Xia Ning stared at Qiao Yu and did not speak.
“You will never fall for Lin Nan,” Qiao Yu said directly.
Xia Ning raised her eyebrows. “Why do you say so?” Why did he look like he knew her so well?
Seeing the thorns all around her, Qiao Yu said in a low voice, “Because he’s not your type, no matter his age, personality, or even his identity. Therefore, if you don’t like him, I think you should make this clear to him sooner.”
Xia Ning scoffed. “Do you know what type I like then?” She raised her eyebrows and looked at him in a vague smile. “It can’t be you, right? You always seem so confident.”
“Xia Ning, I’m not here to fight with you,” Qiao Yu said in a low voice.
Xia Ning sneered. “What do I have to fight with you? I think a better word to describe our relationship at this point is ‘strangers’. Therefore, I don’t think you should sneak up on me like this. I’ll get scared!”
When certain feelings were gone, there was no reason for any involvement. Why couldn’t he get it?
Qiao Yu looked at her slim figure in the cold wind and said in a low voice, “Can you tell me who you went to see today?”
“Why? Are the investors in charge of the actors’ personal lives now?” Xia Ning stared at Qiao Yu ironically.
“Xia Ning, I’m serious!” Qiao Yu looked at her with deep eyes. He was serious about pursuing her.
Xia Ning curled her lips a little. “I’m serious as well, Qiao Yu. I don’t like you and I’ll never like you. Do you feel insecure now? Yeah, the woman you didn’t want, becomes the apple of someone else’s eyes. I’m curious about the reason why you are after me like this. If it is love, that’s great. You should have a taste of the pain that I went through before. No, you’ll never understand.” Her eyes turned cold suddenly.
He was the one making her remember the past and making her hate him!
“It was all my fault before. Can’t you give me a chance to correct it?” Qiao Yu stared at Xia Ning and asked sincerely.
“No!” Xia Ning replied without hesitation. She darted a look at him. “You keep saying you want to pursue me. Let me ask you this. What have you done for me? If you are just being around and asking me to come back to you, Qiao Yu, it’s not that simple. The old me has learned everything for you. What about you? Ever since you started your chase, what did you do? Of course, you are President Qiao of Shengshi Group. You’ll get anything at your command and you don’t have to lower yourself to do any of those. To be honest, seeing your pretentious face now makes me feel sick.” After saying that, she walked ahead directly.
Qiao Yu saw the girl walking past him and suddenly reached out to grab her arm. “What if I can do it?”
Xia Ning did not even give him any look. “Wait till you actually do it.” As she spoke, she got rid of his hand and walked away directly.
Qiao Yu stood still. Hearing the steps getting further away, he did not chase after her again.
Xia Ning walked downstairs directly and happened to see Zheng Ziming at the staircase.
Zheng Ziming saw her as well and walked up at once. He said in a low voice, “Asteria, good job!” As he spoke, he pulled her into his hug.
Xia Ning did not try to get away and let him. This was the person she could trust the most that would never betray her.
Not too far away, there was a quick flash suddenly. And then a shadow left silently.
