After saying that, she narrows her eyes at Zhuang Nai Nai, “Are you people using her pretty face to scam people?”
Zhuang Nai Nai is angry now. Is she implying that Zhuang Nai Nai makes money by selling her face?
She clenches her fist; if this Xue Rong is not a customer, she would have slapped her in the face!
Xue Rong stares back at her, “Why? Has your shame turned to anger after being called out? You were a complete fox all throughout college, who would have thought you would remain the same even after working…”
Zhuang Nai Nai is ready to raise her hands now, but will she lose her job if she does that?
She needs to save money for her mother. She wants her mother to have a good life in the future.
Shi Hao Yu pulls Xue Rong to the back, “Let it go, Xue Rong. That request is too excessive, it is natural that she cannot fulfil it. We are all former classmates, must you say such hurtful words?”
Xue Rong looks at him fiercely, “Be quiet, you! Shi Hao Yu, you still cannot forget her?”
Shi Hao Yu chokes a little, looking like he is about to say something but decides against it.
Seeing his expression, Xue Rong is angered to the point of insanity, “Shi Hao Yu, do you want to marry me or not? If not, then get lost!”
Shi Hao Yu’s face turns red at being scolded. He steals a look at Zhuang Nai Nai’s face, feeling extremely embarrassed. He looks like he is going to blow his top off, but still manages to rein in his anger anyway, “What are you talking about, Rong Rong? Of course I want to marry you!”
Only now does Xue Rong seems a little appeased. When she sees the amused look on Zhuang Nai Nai’s face, as though she is watching a comedy drama, she points at Shi Hao Yu, “Go and make me coffee.”
Shi Hao Yu’s face turns even redder.
Manager Wang interferes at just the right moment, “Mr. Shi treats your fiancée really well. Only you seem to know Ms. Xue’s taste, come, let me lead you to the pantry.”
Shi Hao Yu sighs in relief.
The two of them leave the meeting room, leaving only Zhuang Nai Nai and Xue Rong there.
Xue Rong crosses her arms imposingly as she looks at Zhuang Nai Nai in disdain, “Zhuang Nai Nai, I am really enjoying that lost look on your face. What do you feel when you see me and Shi Hao Yu together?”
Zhuang Nai Nai snaps shut her laptop before looking at Xue Rong earnestly, “I don’t understand this, Xue Rong. You two are about to get married, why do you even bother coming here to flaunt your relationship in front of me?”
“Why?” Xue Rong’s voice sharpens, “Because I don’t like you! I never have! Why did the man than I, Xue Rong liked did not like me and instead chased after you! The scariest thing is, Shi Hao Yu looks good and has a very good personality, why didn’t you like him?”
Zhuang Nai Nai: ………….What kind of twisted mindset is this? Should she have accepted Shi Hao Yu, then?
Xue Rong continues speaking, “I know you are having a hard time understanding me. Did you know how the people in our college viewed me? I, Xue Rong, chased after the thing that you, Zhuang Nai Nai rejected!”
So it is like that!
Her rejecting Shi Hao Yu did not hurt his self-esteem, but instead hurt her’s.
Synopsis: Somewhere in the universe, there was an altar. On it, laid a bloody eye as big as the sun itself. It burst with light and bathed the entire star system in red.
"The aura of an ancestral artifact!" Someone's voice rose in surprise.
The Great Galactic Era had begun.
