She sighs. Her anxiety makes the room feels so hot.
She walks to the balcony and accepts the call there.
Gu De Shou’s voice sounds really anxious when he speaks, “Did you get the design drafts, Qing Yan?”
Zhuang Nai Nai frowns, “Not yet.”
“We are at the end of summer already, Qing Yan. Companies have started releasing their fall-winter collection. What will happen to our Gu Enterprise if you don’t do anything to help us?”
What will happen? How should she know what will happen?
How did they survive before this?
Why are they so dependant on Di Hao’s designs this time?
Zhuang Nai Nai is very stressed out at the moment, that makes her very snappish, “You should know that Di Hao’s design drafts this time will be made by TZ. She has only been back for two days, where do you want me to get the drafts from?”
When Gu De Shou hears the impatience in her voice, he opts for intimidation, “I am not impatient to see the drafts, I am just thinking for you. You must be really impatient to see your Zhuang mama.”
Fury rises inside Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart at that veiled threat. She tries her best to rein her anger in, “Enough, I understand. I will contact you once I get the drafts.”
After saying that, she hangs up on the call.
The night is calm and quiet.
Zhuang Nai Nai stands there for a moment more, taking in the night air. Just as she is about to turn around and leave, she hears the sound of movement from the balcony next to the one she is standing at.
Her body turns rigid. She turns around and discovers Ding Mengya sitting on a hanging chair in the balcony next to her’s. She is looking at Zhuang Nai Nai sharply.
Ding Mengya’s room is next to the master bedroom. Their balcony is right next to each other.
Ding Mengya has been really quiet just now, so Zhuang Nai Nai did not notice her presence.
The distance between their balconies are not far, don’t tell her that she heard her conversation with Gu De Shou?
Zhuang Nai Nai looks at her, frozen. For a long time, none of them speak.
The night air is very cold and chilly, it makes her head feels clear.
Zhuang Nai Nai knows that Ding Mengya must have misunderstood something, but when she remembers what happened 5 years ago, she suddenly feels like she doesn’t owe her any explanation.
Besides, she didn’t do anything wrong, what is there to be afraid of?
Zhuang Nai Nai raises her chin at her before turning around to leave.
Just as she did that, Ding Mengya speaks up warningly, “Zhuang Nai Nai, Zheng Ting hates getting betrayed the most. I hope… you will not do silly things.”
Zhuang Nai Nai stops in her steps, biting her lips. She feels really humiliated by Ding Mengya’s words.
She turns around and grits her teeth before saying, “Don’t worry. I know better than anyone else that I should be hugging Si Zheng Ting’s legs right now. After all, he is too good for me. I am nothing compared to him, am I right?” Her voice is full of disdain and mockery when she says that.
Ding Mengya frowns. Perhaps realizing that she sounded too harsh, Ding Mengya tries to soften her voice, “You cannot blame me for being distrustful. After all, you chose money over Zheng Ting back then. I cannot trust you unconditionally this time.”
She chose money of Si Zheng Ting? Is Ding Mengya joking?
Zhuang Nai Nai smirks. Just as she is about to reply her mockingly, she senses a presence behind her.
She turns around and sees Si Zheng Ting standing on the doorway, looking at her icily.
