Chapter 651: She’s Mine (7)Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
After staying at home doing nothing for two days, An Xiaxia went back to work.
Once she was done with her task, she faintly made out someone talking about her. However, when she pricked up her ears to listen, the voice was gone.
This was so ridiculous…
With nothing better to do, she began to play with her phone. Her Wechat buzzed, indicating that she had been invited to a new chat group.
The name of the chat group read: “The Paris Hilton hidden among us.”
It was probably because of the nature of people in media that the group was given such a flashy name.
Immediately after that, everyone began to chat enthusiastically.
“Have you heard? That intern An Xiaxia is actually the wife of a super rich CEO!”
“That’s right! She also has this superb brother! Aww! She has everything!”
“I’ve found a photo of her husband. Look!”
Someone then posted a picture in the group. An Xiaxia tapped it open and saw that it was a screenshot of some business interview Sheng Yize had taken part in. Despite the low pixel resolution, he still looked remarkable.
“Shit! He’s so handsome! I’m gonna savor that photo for a whole year!”
“Why does he look so familiar to me… Was he a celebrity once? That group, what was it called…”
“You’re right! He was their captain and he’s the president of Shengshi Group now!”
The girls in the group went on squealing. After much hesitation, An Xiaxia typed a few words. “Um… I’m not married… I’m telling the truth…”
There was a weird silence for a few seconds, then everyone began to speak at the same time.
“Shit! Who invited An Xiaxia in?!”
“Sob… Sorry, I invited the wrong person…”
“Pfft… this is so awkward…”
An Xiaxia smacked her forehead. Had she not been invited, she wouldn’t have had any idea that they were gossiping about her.
Looking up, she saw Nero Zhou heading her way. She immediately put her phone away.
“Anan, how are you doing? Are you tired? Is the job too tough?” Nero Zhou asked with a mild expression.
An Xiaxia broke into a cold sweat. “Boss, I don’t feel tired at all working for my company!”
Nero Zhou patted her on the shoulder, sounding unbelievably nice. “Well… since you’ve been performing admirably recently, I’ve decided to make you an official employee ahead of time!”
Wow, why was Nero Zhou so kind all of a sudden?
“Ahem. He Dongyang just got us something major and we’re throwing a celebration party tonight. Family is welcome. So, bring your husband with you!” Nero Zhou made a face. “Stop pretending! I know you’re married!”
Before she had a chance to refute it, Nero Zhou left in a great mood, whistling as he walked away.
An Xiaxia felt like crying a river.
She really wasn’t married!!
The celebration party was held at a restaurant nearby.
An Xiaxia paced around outside, overwhelmed with anxiety. Oh god! What should she do now?
While she was seriously considering bashing her head on the wall, a deep, mesmerizing voice asked, “Miss An, are you expecting someone?”
Hm? That was a familiar voice.
Turning around, An Xiaxia was dumbfounded.
It was Sheng Yize.
He had on a smart casual outfit and his face reminded one of a landscape painting. Even the slightest curl of his lip had the most alluring effect.
“Hm… hello.” An Xiaxia greeted him. “Are you having dinner here?”
“I have a case to discuss,” he said politely. “Aren’t you going in, Miss An?”
An Xiaxia opened her mouth, but didn’t know what to say.
She couldn’t just blurt out “I’m waiting for my husband and that’s you,” could she?
He would think her crazy…
“It’s nothing…” She shook her head.
In the distance, Wen Qing yelled at the top of her lungs, “Why, look! An Xiaxia really brought her husband!”
At that moment, An Xiaxia seriously wished… she could disappear.
