Chapter 209: Stand-in Lover (21)
World Seven. Stand-in Lover (21)
“In a bad mood?”
After Chi Yu picked up Xue Xue in the evening, the first sentence he asked hit the nail on the head.
Xue Xue was a bit taken aback. She was indeed troubled by Xue Dehui’s unexpected attitude, but today she had to deal with Yang Qingmei who cried, made trouble and fussed in her office, and was taken away forcefully by the guards, and then had two consecutive meetings. Xue Xue felt extremely tired by the time she was free.
However, because Chi Yu called and told her that he would take her to eat in a friend’s newly opened restaurant today, so she reapplied her makeup in the office and let Chi Yu come over after making sure everything was ok.
Unexpectedly, Chi Yu’s eyes seemed to be equipped with a scanner, and Xue Xue’s depressed mood could be seen at a glance.
She had mixed feelings for a while.
No matter how Chi Yu was, one thing that she was certain was that he must have invested a lot of feelings in Xue Li, otherwise he wouldn’t immediately notice something was wrong with this body.
“Why aren’t you saying anything?”
“Huh? No… just curious, how do you know I’m not in a good mood?” Xue Xue thought for a while and took out a makeup mirror from her bag to check her makeup carefully. “I think I’m in good spirits after seeing it myself.”
“Hey.” Hearing what Xue Xue said, Chi Yu laughed. “Who said to you that the mood must be written on the face? You know there is a word called “to cover up the obvious”?
Xue Xue deliberately turned her head and thought about it.
“Hmm… I think I’ve heard it before.”
The woman’s sly and mischievous appearance was so cute, and through the mirror, Chi Yu experienced the feeling of heartbeat stalling again after a long absence.
He always felt that the person infront of him seemed to have changed, but nothing seemed to have changed.
But no matter whether changed or not, Chi Yu believed in his own heart.
When stopping at a red light, he caught a glimpse of Xue Xue closing her eyes and taking a nap. After hesitating for a few seconds, he reached out and put his palm on the top of the woman’s head, and patted it gently.
Sensing the movement, Xue Xue immediately opened her eyes, and Chi Yu immediately retracted his hand as if electrocuted, his ears flushed.
This was the expression of Chi Yu’s shyness, and Xue Xue already knew it very well.
The corners of her lips were slightly raised, and the arc was like a rainbow, hooking Chi Yu’s heart.
Xue Xue didn’t know that just such an expression could make fireworks explode in the man’s heart. She just leaned her body back on the back of the chair, looking forward but looking distracted.
“Actually today… Mrs. Chen came to see me.”
Xue Xue did not forget that what Chi Yu couldn’t accept the most was Xue Li’s concealment.
Although Xue Li’s state of mind has been analyzed to Chi Yu before, but it would be meaningless if the way the two get along with each other remains unchanged, so Xue Xue decided to try to explain clearly to Chi Yu as much as possible. As for Xue Dehui, because she didn’t even figure out what the other party wanted to do, she simply ignored it.
Sure enough, after hearing what she said, Chi Yu was a little surprised at first, but then his expression became serious.
Since the shop opened by Chi Yu’s friend was in the suburbs, the two of them took a section of the highway first, just in time for the rush hour after work. The speed was slow and the driving and stopping also allowed Chi Yu who always had his feet on the brakes, to listen to Xue Xue speak.
He knew that the Mrs. Chen Xue Xue said was referring to Yang Qingmei, but in the past, Xue Li never took the initiative to mention this woman to Chi Yu.
Xue Li thought that Yang Qingmei was irrelevant, but in Chi Yu’s view, this was evidence that the two were not close enough, and later became one of Chi Yu’s reasons for “accusing” Xue Li.
There was too much difference between the two people’s cognition. The seemingly insignificant things eventually became the last straw that crushed each other.
However, many things would take on a completely different look as long as they are viewed from a different angle.
The change starts now.
“Mrs. Chen is my mother.” Xue Xue explained with sarcasm. “Ms. Yang Qingmei.”
“Do you know what she came to see me for today? You definitely can’t guess.” Xue Xue asked him and answered. “She actually wanted to arrange a blind date for me.”
When Xue Xue said the word “blind date”, Chi Yu squeezed the steering wheel with both hands, and the muscle lines of his arms slightly bulged.
The aura around Chi Yu’s body became gloomy, and the long eyelashes covered the surging emotions in his eyes.
“Yes, blind date, oh no, of course she didn’t say it was a blind date, but the meaning was already very clear.”
Xue Xue said while looking out the window at the busy traffic with her head on her hands. From this angle, she could just see the city’s brightly lit night scene, which was spectacular and beautiful.
However Xue Xue didn’t want to enjoy the scenery, instead looked at the man’s expression openly through the transparent glass window.
Like wearing a mask.
Chi Yu choked out these two words after being silent for a long time.
He gritted his teeth.
Xue Xue was secretly happy in her heart, but her face was still indifferent. “Chen An.”
“Chen Huaixian’s youngest son.” Chi Yu replied affirmatively after thinking about it.
Xue Xue didn’t admit it or deny it, but she suddenly thought of a very important thing.
“Ah Yu.” Xue Xue suddenly turned her face towards Chi Yu. If she hadn’t considered that the other party was driving, she might even have demanded directly. “I’m curious about one thing.”
After finally getting out of the heavy traffic, Chi Yu drove the car off the interchange and drove all the way to the suburbs.
“Are you really just an ordinary coffee shop owner?”
Xue Xue’s voice was soft and gentle. If he didn’t listen carefully, he might ignore it, but Chi Yu has been listening to Xue Xue’s words attentively. Naturally, this sentence was not missed.
The man was silent for a moment, which was enough for Xue Xue to confirm her suspicions.
She did not forget the two directors who temporarily defected at the board meeting where Xue Li was pulled down from her position. Although they were not close, they were good acquaintance with Xue Li. The day before the board meeting, Xue Li called the two of them and they ensured that they would not go back on their words, but what happened in the end?
In the end, they turned their backs. In Xue Li’s memory, one of the directors approached Xue Li at the end of the meeting and told him that someone threatened his family’s safety, and he had to compromise.
At that time Xue Li just smiled and didn’t care.
The winner is the king, the loser is the invader, she tried her best and that was enough.
But now Xue Xue overlapped that seemingly insignificant clip with the later scene of Chi Yu stepping into Xue Li’s office in a white suit, revealing something faintly.
Xue Xue carefully recalled it again.
The crazy revenge, the canceled wedding, coffee shop owner who could travel all over the world as he pleased…
