Destined Wife: The Apple of My Eye - chapter 50
Jin Xiaoxi is stunned to look at Lang Ruoxian. When she realizes what he is saying, her face turns pale.
“Miss Jin, you don’t look very well. Do you want to have a rest?” The man steps back two steps and looks at her carelessly.
“Xiaoxi? Why are you here?”
Jin Xiaoxi turns around and sees her father coming. She suddenly looks back at Lang Ruoxian again. The man directs an inquiring glance at her, looking gentle and graceful.
“Mr. Lang…” Did she just hallucinate?
The stout President Jin has already walked up to them two, he turns his eyes from Lang Ruoxian to his daughter and asks meaningfully, “Am I disturbing you?”
“President Jin, you are very kind. Your daughter seems a little uncomfortable. You’d better take her to have a rest.”
President Jin is puzzled and asks, “You don’t feel well?”
“I…” Jin Xiaoxi wants to say that she is fine, but when she looks at Lang Ruoxian, she sees the undisguised disgust from his eyes.
She takes two steps back in fright and grabs President Jin. “I’m a little dizzy, Dad. Please take me to have a rest!”
“Is it really so serious?” President Jin still wants his daughter to get along with Lang Ruoxian more.
Jin Xiaoxi looks at Lang Ruoxian again. When she sees the corner of his mouth upturn, she is scared to death. She pushes away her father. “I’d like to go to have a rest, to have a rest…”
“The girl is really…” President Jin embarrassedly smiles at Lang Ruoxian and says, “Really sorry. Girls are thin-skinned.”
“President Jin, please help yourself. I’ll go to the hall.” Lang Ruoxian doesn’t answer him. He nods and leaves.
Yan Hua sees that the delicate beauty is panicked and runs out, then Lang Ruoxian comes back slowly and leisurely.
“Did she see a ghost?” Yan Hua asks.
Lang Ruoxian reaches out and says, “I need some tissue.”
“Didn’t you wash your hands after going to the bathroom?” Yan Hua gives some tissue to him while saying.
Lang Ruoxian takes the tissue to wipe his hands. “I won’t ask you for tissue if I didn’t wash my hands. I will use your clothes directly.”
“You haven’t told me what you have done to the girl!” Yan Hua looks at him curiously.
“I didn’t do anything to her.” Lang Ruoxian checks his watch and asks her, “Do you still want to stay?”
Yan Hua says, “Would it be impolite to leave in advance?”
“It doesn’t matter. Let’s go.” Lang Ruoxian helps her get up and Yan Hua looks at his hand.
So is it… because the girl touched him, he wiped his hand clean?
Fei Yi personally shows them to the door.
“Miss Yan, my wife has said what she should say. Please don’t hesitate to ask for our help in the future.” He gives Lang Ruoxian a meaningful glance. “Anything you need help is OK.”
Yan Hua nods and answers, “Thank you for your goodwill, Mr. Fei. Thank you!”
Getting on the car, Yan Hua stares at Lang Ruoxian.
“Is there any word written on my face?”
“Have you reached any agreement with Mr. Fei?”
Lang Ruoxian raises his eyelids and says, “I remember when you were in He Family, you never cared about the company. I heard that Mr. He’s mother used to ask you to work in the company. You didn’t learn how to use the copier after one month’s working.”
“I was not an office clerk, so why should I know how to use it?” Yan Hua picks up her coat in the car and puts it on. “If you don’t want to tell me, just pretend I didn’t ask you just now.”
Lang Ruoxian investigated Yan Hua before. In the report, she was not good at professional skills or life skills. To sum up, she doesn’t have smart brains but beautiful appearance.
But obviously there is something wrong with the investigation result.
“In fact, you are very smart.” He smiles faintly, “Both your observation and sensitivity to human beings or to things are excellent.”
Yan Hua answers, “No, comparing with you, I am no more than a primary school student.”
“You seem to have self-knowledge.”
Yan Hua squints at him.
“You don’t know anything about the business, but you can be keenly aware of the problem.” Lang Ruoxian goes on to say, “Now all the businessmen in G City are staring at the land in the development zone. No one can develop such a large area of land exclusively.”
“But you and Fei Yi want to share the business.” Yan Hua thinks for a moment and begins to say tentatively, “Just the two of you.”
Lang Ruoxian laughs loudly and says, “That’s what I said. You are really smart.”
“No, I just…” …know you better.
Yan Hua doesn’t finish the sentence. She waves her hand and says, “All right, I don’t want to ask so many questions, which is annoying.”
Lang Ruoxian gazes at her, with a faint smile on his face. His gaze makes Yan Hua a little nervous.
“Is there any word written on my face, too?”
Lang Ruoxian looks in another direction and keeps silence.
Yan Hua is very happy at this dinner party. No one challenges her, and no accident happens. Besides, she meets Fei Ying. But her happiness only lasts one night. The next afternoon, Lang Ruoxian calls her from the company.
“What are you doing now?”
Yan Hua asks him curiously, “Gungun and I are basking. What’s up?”
“Nothing, I’ll hang up.”
The phone is hung up, and Yan Hua hangs up the phone without knowing why he calls.
“What did he mean?”
She stares at her mobile phone. When she is about to put it down, it receives a micro blog push.
“The widow of a rich and powerful family is chatting closely with the new best actor, they are suspected of being in a relationship.”
Yan Hua hurriedly clicks on the micro blog and gets frightened. She is on headlines, and she can see the photos of herself and Fei Shan when clicking on any of those headlines.
The background is the banquet last night. The photo was taken when she was chatting with Fei Shan on the sofa. It has to be said that the photographer is excellent because his camera angle is so artful that she and Fei Shan are almost cheek to cheek in the photo.
“Madam Hua!” Uncle Lee rushes over and asks, “Have you seen the news on the Internet?”
Yan Hua raises her head and waves her mobile phone. “I am reading them.”
Lang Consortium’s official micro blog is about to explode, and countless netizens rush in the webpage to scold.
Of course, most of them scold Yan Hua.
“She is a widow, who has no qualification to approach our idol. Isn’t she shameless?”
“Didn’t you hear that she and her ex-husband went to the hotel to check in before? How thirsty is this woman?”
“Crying, crying, crying, how can our idol has a crush on a widow? Please look at me! Look at me!”
The whole micro blog is caught in a storm. Then someone wants to dig up Yan Hua’s past, but what are released later are all meaningless things.
“It is inconceivable to believe that they know something about my past, for I myself don’t know how it is.” Yan Hua drops the phone and sees that Uncle Lee is still looking at her.
“It’s okay. Old Master called just now and said that you needn’t worry. Childe Ruoxian would deal with it.”
Yan Hua smiles and says, “It’s no use for me to worry about it! Let’s go to have dinner.”
Lang Ruoxian sits sullenly behind his desk and reads the comments on the Internet. Some people even say that Yan Hua looks so beautiful and matches Fei Shan very well.
“Young Master…” Xiaokai carefully calls him. Young Master laughs horribly. Terrifying!
“They have already started to deal with it and will soon delete those reports.” Xiaokai curls his lips and says, “Why hasn’t Fei Shan come forward? Did he do it on purpose?”
Lang Ruoxian says coldly, “He is not stupid and will not do such a thing.”
It’s not good for him.
“What if he falls in love with Miss Yan at first sight? Miss Yan is so beautiful. And Fei Family has always had no requirements for family status. If he likes Miss Yan, then…”
The voice of Xiaokai is getting lower and lower, because Lang Ruoxian’s anger seems to be visible and his face turns black with anger.
“Call Fei Yi.”
After the phone is connected, before Lang Ruoxian starts to talk, Fei Yi speaks first.
“I’m sorry. It’s Fei Shan who brought trouble to Miss Yan. He just posts on micro blog as soon as he gets off the plane. My wife is calling Miss Yan. This time it is my negligence and I owe you one.”
Lang Ruoxian hangs up without saying a word.
Yan Hua is not surprised when she receives a phone call from Fei Ying. Fei Ying keeps apologizing over there, and Yan Hua is calmer instead.
“I was really angry when I saw those curses just now, but who wouldn’t scold me when those fans think that their idol is falling love with me?” Yan Hua smiles and comforts Fei Ying in turn. “Scolding doesn’t hurt me. Besides, do you know how many people are jealous of me?”
Fei Ying was angry and anxious just now. But after hearing what Yan Hua says, she sniggers.
“You are really… Alas!” She smiles and then sighs, “It’s all Fei Shan’s fault. I’ll ask him to apologize to you when he comes back.”
“Never mind. He didn’t mean it.”
“No, no, no, you should blame us besides him.” Fei Ying says, “Our security was not perfect enough. Are you free tomorrow? Let’s go out for dinner!”
Yan Hua knows that if she says no to the invitation, Fei Ying will feel guilty all the time, so she readily agrees to go. And they will take their babies with them.
When she clicks on micro blog again, she finds that the trend of public opinion has changed. Because Fei Shan made a statement a few minutes ago.
“Do you believe this kind of cheating photos? Where’s your brain? My fans can’t be so stupid, can you? In addition, I have just reached the beautiful Aegean Sea. I am looking forward to this advertising shooting. Do you expect it?”
There is also a photo of him at the airport, wearing gray sweater and jeans, and a red cap. He is very fashionable.
His post is followed up by fans who lick the screen. His fanboys and fangirls begin to queue up to add their comments.
“We’re not stupid, and we don’t believe it at all!”
“We are not stupid, and we never believe it!”
“We are not stupid, and our idol is still ours!”
Countless replies appear on micro blog.
Yan Hua shakes her head and feels lucky that she has not set an account on micro blog. What is all this?
“Buzz buzz buzz!” Suddenly there comes a phone call, which is an unknown number.
“Hello?” Yan Hua answers the phone carefully.
There is a laughter in low voice over there, “This is Fei Shan.”
“Ah? Is that you?” Yan Hua is relieved. She is worried about receiving a phone call from a reporter or somebody else.
Fei Shan coughs and says, “Sorry, I apologize for bringing you into trouble this time.”
“You didn’t do it on purpose.” Yan Hua smiles and says, “Xiaoying just apologized to me.”
“My sister-in-law is my sister-in-law, while I am I.” Fei Shan’s voice is much more serious than before. “I’ll find out who did it. If they only made rumors of me, that is not big deal. But how dare they get innocent people in trouble?”
It is fine with Yan Hua. After all, it is not against her. She is an innocent passer-by.
“But…” Fei Shan laughs at the other end of the phone, “They might have offended Lang Family this time. I hear that the Old Master of Lang Family likes you very much. He Family…”
“What’s the matter with He Family?” Yan Hua interrupts him, “I don’t know.”
