My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 229
After saying that, he calmly extricated himself and headed outside hurriedly.
The people in the resting room looked at each other dumbfoundedly. Meanwhile, Director Wang laughed it off and addressed it vaguely, “He must have had something going on. Alright, the journey today has been very exhausting. Good job, everyone. All of you go have a good rest tonight.”
Chen Shuyi whispered, “See, I wasn’t lying right?”
Lin Zhen also had experienced it before. How could she not guess what Lu Lixing’s reaction of ‘putting up a composed front, then hurriedly chasing behind’ meant? Although on the surface he could fool others, the way his body instinctively reacted definitely could not fool them.
Even if that’s the case, Lin Zhen still found it weird. Before Lu Lixing met with the car accident, she didn’t hear anything about the two of them being involved with each other, so within these two short months why did Lu Lixing suddenly have Ji Qingqing by his side?
And from the looks of it, their relationship also didn’t seem simple.
At one side Shen Weiwei watched as Ji Qingqing and Lu Lixing left the room. A trace of coldness flashed in her eyes.
“Don’t worry, you don’t have to be scared. As long as I’m here, I definitely won’t allow them to bully you.” Gu Shaoyu held Shen Weiwei’s hand and his tone was firm.
Shen Weiwei was momentarily stunned. Then she gradually pulled her hand out from Gu Shaoyu’s. With a polite and apologetic smile on her face, she replied, “Thank you, Shaoyu. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have had this opportunity to attend this program.”
“I’ve already said it before many times.” Gu Shaoyu’s voice had a trace of helplessness and he sounded vexed. “You don’t have to thank me. As long as the matter has something to do with you, I am willing to do it.
Shen Weiwei looked down and smiled. She didn’t continue speaking.
At the first floor elevator, Ji Qingqing looked at the elevator levels that decreased steadily. She glanced at the Qin Yue behind her who was reflected on the elevator’s surface. “Brother Qin, did you know that Lu Lixing would be attending this program?”
Qin Yue obviously knew about this matter, but even though he knew, he was under the impression that Lu Lixing would reveal it to Ji Qingqing himself. Earlier today when Ji Qingqing asked him who her partner was, Qin Yue thought that Lu Lixing was hiding the news on purpose in order to surprise her.
This was going to be a pleasant surprise for the couple. If he, an outsider, revealed it in advance, it would be really tactless so he decided not to say anything.
“Yes, that’s right. I knew about it. Previously, President Lu had discussed this with me so I thought he wanted to surprise you…”
Ji Qingqing raised her eyebrow. Well, this really was rather ‘surprising.’
Footsteps sounded in from the distance and gradually became closer.
Ji Qingqing glanced at the entrance and saw Lu Lixing’s silhouette.
How timely, the elevator was here. She withdrew her gaze and entered the elevator.
Just before the elevator’s doors were about to shut, Lu Lixing’s face appeared in front of the half-closed doors and the doors opened again.
While Lu Lixing entered the elevator, his assistant stood outside. Lu Lixing’s assistant smiled and glanced at Qin Yue. Qin Yue immediately understood. He then smiled and walked out of the elevator.
The elevator doors closed. Ji Qingqing was standing towards the right of Lu Lixing. She stared at the increasing digits of the elevator’s display and totally ignored Lu Lixing.
Since Ji Qingqing didn’t speak, Lu Lixing remained silent too. He looked at the elevator’s surface which reflected Ji Qingqing’s appearance. His lips opened and he hesitated.
After a while, Ji Qingqing finally looked at him and asked doubtfully, “I wonder why did Mr. Lu lower his eminent self to attend this program?”
Lu Lixing gave a low cough.
“It’s because of singleness, right?”
Lu Lixing was momentarily stunned.
Ji Qingqing then continued speaking straightforwardly. “Mr. Lu, this program is an act. It’s about fake couples and fake dating. Even if you are single, you shouldn’t try to take advantage of others.”
