Chapter 66.2 — PDA
In the afternoon, Kang Zhong reported Wang Zhilin’s incident at the hospital to Su Yanyi.
“Make some arrangements and pick a time, tomorrow I’ll go and take a look at her,” Su Yanyi instructed with a menacing glint in her eyes.
Kang Zhong pushed up his glasses and secretly lit a candle for Wang Zhilin. Poor Miss Wang, he hoped she wouldn’t be toyed to death too soon by his boss.
Su Yanyi had to attend a cocktail party, so Qin Jiran was forced to stay with his film crew that evening. He ate a meal comprised of random things from their dinners, causing Guo Zekai to tease him again.
Kang Zhong accompanied Su Yanyi to the cocktail party. Although the two of them usually kept low profiles, their identities made it impossible for them to enter unnoticed. It didn’t take long before they were surrounded by a group of people and pulled into some idle conversation.
Su Yanyi was feeling a bit absentminded, mainly because she was hungry. However, the food at the banquet was obviously not to her taste, and she didn’t have the time to eat anyway. She stood there drinking wine until Kang Zhong came over with a slice of cake.
“President Su, too much alcohol is bad for the body. Have a slice of cake.” As her personal assistant, it was his job to also act as her nanny from time to time.
She didn’t refuse, but after a bite of the delicate-looking cake, she frowned with dissatisfaction. The cake was too sweet and completely unpalatable compared to the ones that Qin Jiran would make.
“Doesn’t taste good,” she said as she set the plate aside.
Kang Zhong peeked at it and couldn’t help but joke, “President Su, it probably doesn’t taste as good as the ones Mr. Qin makes. Would you like me to call Mr. Qin and tell him to prepare something?”
Su Yanyi shot him a glance, at which he immediately coughed and stopped talking. His boss was absolutely terrifying, alright?
However, that didn’t stop him from secretly taking out his phone and sending a message to Qin Jiran: President Su took a bite from a slice of cake and said it tasted too sweet.
Meanwhile, at the filming site…
Qin Jiran was in the middle of filming, so Jiang Xiaobin, who was holding onto his phone, saw the message first. He read over the message a few times before speechlessly shaking his head.
So Assistant Kang is a black-belly…
Soon, Qin Jiran finished and retrieved his phone. After expressionlessly reading the message, he wordlessly put his phone away and went to Guo Zekai. “My scenes are done, so I’ll leave the rest to you.”
Standing at the side, Jiang Xiaobin covered his face and thought, I shouldn’t tell Director Guo that Film Emperor Qin is actually trying to rush home so he can prepare a cake for Queen Su!
Back at the cocktail party, Su Yanyi had finalized two cooperation plans and sought out three more companies that she could cooperate with. By then, she had drunk a total of five or six glasses of wine and was quite hungry, so she called for Kang Zhong to leave.
But before they could, they bumped into two familiar people, a man and a woman. The sight of them caused Su Yanyi to slightly narrow her eyes as a cold glint flickered across their depths.
What a pair.
The man was Qin Chu, Qin Zhenyi’s eldest son and Qin Jiran’s younger half-brother by a few months. Next to Qin Chu was none other than Wang Zhirou. The two appeared to be intimate as they approached Su Yanyi, giving her a bad feeling.
“President Su, long time no see. I didn’t expect to meet you here. It must be fate, huh?” Qin Chu smiled gracefully, but in Su Yanyi’s eyes, his smile looked like a clown’s smile.
“Who are you? Do I know you?” She looked at him as though he was a complete stranger to her.
In fact, there really weren’t any connections between the Qin family and the Su family. Although they were both part of the four great families, their business interests were different; thus, they had never cooperated on anything. Both families went about their own ways without interfering with the other, and their younger generations didn’t mingle either. Therefore, it was perfectly justifiable for Su Yanyi to claim that she didn’t know Qin Chu.
But she meant it as a jab, so there was no need to justify anything anyway.
“Ah, my bad. I should’ve called you ‘sister-in-law’ instead. I was surprised when I found out that I have an illegitimate brother. Oh, is he not here? I heard that he’s an actor, but acting is a difficult career. Sister-in-law, you should advise him to partake in some real business affairs.” Qin Chu continued to smile, but from his tone it was obvious that he was feeling awkward, and his words were clearly not spoken out of good will.
Su Yanyi raised an eyebrow and scrutinized him from head to toe, her disdain so obvious that even their onlookers could sense it. Then she sneered, “What are you? Are you worthy of referring to me as your sister-in-law? And don’t throw around the words ‘brother’ and ‘sister-in-law’ so easily, you can’t afford the luxury!”
The instant her ridicule fell, their onlookers instantly began to laugh. They looked at Qin Chu with similar disdain, forcing the smile off of his reddening face.
“President Su, you should think twice before acting so rude. You should save some face for the Qin family; after all, you are my sister-in-law.”
“The ‘face’ of the Qin family must be worthless if you’re able to bring it up so easily. Oh, and…” She deliberately paused for a moment, and sure enough, Qin Chu couldn’t help but prompt, “And what?”
“And good dogs don’t get in the way of others. But you’re in my way.”
Qin Chu’s face turned white with rage as their audience laughed louder. Su Yanyi also made a point to humiliate Wang Zhirou by completely ignoring her. When she was satisfied, she took Kang Zhong and left.
Kang Zhong drove Su Yanyi home and watched her enter the villa. Before leaving, however, he sent Qin Jiran a message: President Su drank a lot of wine. Tomorrow, I’ll come later than usual to pick her up.
Since it wasn’t his place to tell Qin Jiran about the encounter with Qin Chu and Wang Zhirou at the party, he didn’t mention anything about it.
When Qin Jiran saw the message, the cake was already done. He felt that there was something odd about the message, but he shook it off and went to find Su Yanyi, who had just entered the living room and was resting on the sofa.
She had indeed drunk a quantity of wine. As a result, her face was flushed, and she felt a little dizzy. Qin Jiran put the cake down in front of her and asked worriedly, “Are you okay? Do you want me to go and pour you a glass of honey water?”
She looked up and suddenly whined with teary eyes, ”I’m hungry.”
Instantly, he froze.
VIN: It’s my birthday tomorrow, January 8th :))) I will turn 18.
I can really feel the burn in that “what are you?” lolol
