Chapter 255: Old Cucumber Putting on Green Paint, Acting Young
Louis smiled gently but he was also domineering. “I don’t have to ask
if you like it or not!”
“Oh, you are on a different level from us. I can understand!” Cheng
Anya smiled faintly and drank the juice leisurely. Since she could no
longer walk away, she might as well let things go naturally. Louis could
not do anything since they were in MBS International’s cafeteria.
Louis spun the cup and smiled. “Anya, you are really similar to Third
Young Master Ye. Both of you are so sharp when scolding people.”
Both of them had a really wicked tongue and were quick-witted.
“Sorry, I ate too much of his saliva.” Cheng Anya smiled and said it
without blushing, looking as if she was very proud. She said it very
softly, so only Louis heard her. A trace of shock flashed past his
emerald eyes and Cheng Anya could feel the atmosphere around her becoming
But Louis was still the melancholic prince.
Cheng Anya felt that there was a chill down her spine. Provoking Louis
was definitely not something that a smart person would do. However, his
face really made her feel uncomfortable and she could not help but spill
out those words.
“What do you think about becoming my private secretary?” Louis asked
while smiling. The cold gaze that lasted for a second disappeared and he
quickly regained his calmness. Cheng Anya was wondering why he had such a
stable mask and what caused his expression to change.
“What I think is not important. It is more important to know about what
President Ye thinks. I’m his chief secretary, so you should ask him
about it. If he is willing to send me to you, I will listen to him
without any objection,” Cheng Anya said faintly. If Third Young Master
Ye dared to send her to Louis, she would fire him without saying anything.
Louis was shocked. Where did this woman’s confidence come from? How was
she so sure that Third Young Master Ye would reject his request?
Louis did not believe that the feelings between Anya and Third Young
Master Ye would be so stable to the point where nobody could affect them.
To Louis, no relationship in this world was stable forever, be it between
brothers, or parents and children.
Much less the fragile romantic love.
At the table near them, Liu Xiaotian tugged on Director Li’s sleeves
and asked, “Hey, does the vice-president like Anya?”
“I don’t know!” Director Li replied coldly.
“He looks so gentle and beautiful when he smiles!” Liu Xiaotian was
in a nymphomaniac state and smiled in a perverted manner. “Why is there
no such handsome man wooing me?”
Director Li turned his head slowly and his usual cold gaze looked very
gentle. “Sweet doughnut, say it again.”
Liu Xiaotian’s hair stood on end and the atmosphere was cold. She
smiled sheepishly and Director Li, who had a weird temper, suddenly stood
up and slammed the table before pulling up his sleeves and left. His hair
was tossed in a graceful manner.
The sound of slamming on the table was very loud in the silent room and
it successfully attracted the attention of others. Liu Xiaotian was so
regretful. Why was she so stupid?
“Anya, I shall go back first!” Liu Xiaotian immediately rushed out as
if there was oil under her feet.
Cheng Anya could not help but laugh. “Louis, look at how flirty you
are. You have caused the young couple to get into a fight. It is really
“Too bad, I only want to attract you,” Louis said affectionately.
“Anya, how am I not comparable to him?”
‘You are not comparable to Ye Chen in all sorts of ways!’ Cheng Anya
thought to herself secretly.
“There is an old Chinese saying that beauty is in the eye of the
beholder. You must have heard it before, since your Chinese is so
good.” Cheng Anya smiled. “Given a Chinese’s standard of beauty,
you are indeed not as good-looking as Ye Chen.”
Louis raised his eyebrows. How was this related to their looks?
“There is indeed a gap between us. After all, there is a problem of
communication between people from different countries.” Cheng Anya
explained kindly. “I am someone that judges people by their appearance
and I covet Ye Chen’s beauty. You should blame your mom for not giving
you a more handsome face. This is an inborn issue and it is useless no
matter how hard you try.”
Judging people by their appearance, coveting Ye Chen’s beauty, and he
was not as handsome as Ye Chen?
These few phrases flashed past Louis usually-sharp mind, but he was
confused. His expression kept changing and it was hard to understand his
expressions. Cheng Anya smiled. She knew that she could not handle Louis
as he was a persistent pervert that would not harm her. It was a pity not
to play around with him since he was a toy that delivered himself to her.
The group of men that was coveting Miss Cheng’s beauty and capability
raised their thumbs. She was too doughty for daring to talk to Louis in
such a manner. She was very courageous and she instantly became their
queen from the innocent and cute Miss Cheng.
They could even see the arrogant look of the queen waving the whip. They
had totally misjudged this woman.
At least, none of them dared to sneer at Louis.
“The two of you are cousins.”
“You are really old-fashioned. There are many cousins marrying each
other in Italy.” Cheng Anya smiled and did not mind Louis mentioning
her family’s relationship at all.
“I am really happy to talk to you,” Louis said faintly and his
emerald eyes darkened with a determined look.
“I am not happy at all.” Cheng Anya smiled and waved her hands
calmly. “Of course, you don’t have to care whether I am happy or
He only cared about his own motive. This was Louis.
“You’re right!” Louis smiled faintly and supported his chin with
one hand. He swirled the wine in his cup and had a forced smile. “What
should I do when I’m getting more interested in you? It seems like I
have to fight with Ye Chen until the end.”
He was very charismatic at that moment. He was the melancholic prince and
very elegant at the same time. He was very charming and captured the
hearts of another batch of female workers. They all looked at him in a
Cheng Anya suddenly smiled in an elegant manner. “Mister Louis, I have
a question that I have always wanted to ask. How old are you?”
He looked like he was around thirty years old.
However, he had a fair complexion and was beautiful. He was an extreme
example of not judging people by their appearance.
“I am thirty-six years old,” Louis said without hiding. Men this age
were the most matured, charismatic, and calm. A young man could not be
compared to them and Louis always knew that he was very charismatic.
“Thirty-six?” Cheng Anya smiled in a gentle manner. “Why are you
wooing me when you are already so old? Are you an old cucumber putting on
green paint? You’re acting young!”
This was the second time that Louis was speechless.
Everyone around them was shocked. Those elites opened their mouths wide
and were stupefied…
Old cucumber putting on green paint, acting young…
This sentence was like an echo that kept replaying in their mind.
Louis was the godfather of the Italian mafia, yet Miss Cheng dared to
sneer at him in such a manner. She was too courageous. Her image had
turned from a queen to a goddess.
Louis was very shocked as this was the first time someone dared to speak
to him in such a manner.
Cheng Anya stood up calmly and smiled. “Vice-president, it is time for
me to go back to work. I shall excuse myself!”
