Lin Ruoxi exited the room quietly and retreated to a corner. She leaned
against the wall for support, taking in a sigh of relief.
Had she stay in the room, her employees would most likely have demanded
her to sing. Under such circumstances, she certainly couldnâ€™t decline
to sing lest she disappoint her employees greatly. However, if she
decided to sing, she would disappoint them further.
Since young, Lin Ruoxi had never felt that singing was this important.
Liu Mingyu who walked out and followed Lin Ruoxi was incredibly worried.
She originally wanted to get to the washroom. However, she had completely
forgotten about it currently.
When Lin Ruoxi suddenly stopped walking, with her back facing her, Liu
Mingyu was certain that Lin Ruoxi wanted to confront her.
Clenching her teeth, Liu Mingyu gathered her courage and approached Lin
Ruoxi. â€œBoss Lin, please give me your forgiveness regarding me and Yang
Liu Mingyuâ€™s initially white face instantly turned pinkish after saying
it while worry, fear, shyness, and helplessness could be seen on it.
Panicked, she silently waited for Lin Ruoxiâ€™s judgement.
She knew that she definitely wouldnâ€™t end up well if the woman in front
of her wanted to be merciless. Ignoring the fact that her job was given
by Lin Ruoxi, which could be taken away anytime, even if Yang Chen
wasnâ€™t willing to leave her, there would still be nowhere left for her
Iâ€™m only an outsider after allâ€¦ Liu Mingyu thought. She despised
Lin Ruoxi on the other hand was a little surprised, but soon understood
what Liu Mingyu meant.
In fact, Lin Ruoxi had seen Yang Chen interact with Liu Mingyu rather
intimately before, but she didnâ€™t have the luxury of investigating
them, so she didnâ€™t manage to confirm her guess.
All Lin Ruoxi knew previously was Mo Qianni, Rose, and An Xin were Yang
Chenâ€™s lovers, with Liu Mingyu still in doubt. When she decided to
attend this party, seeing if Yang Chen was involved with other female
colleagues as well was part of her plan.
Seeing the aggrieved woman who was in fact a few years older than her,
Lin Ruoxi let out a faint smile which held sourness and helplessness.
Liu Mingyu relied on her prestige and performance to become the head of
the public relations department. So Lin Ruoxi actually saw her as a key
player for the future of Yu Lei International and very competent worker.
However, today, Liu Mingyu became Lin Ruoxiâ€™s love rival.
To put it in another way, Liu Mingyu couldnâ€™t be considered a
â€کrivalâ€™, but a mere competitor.
That was because that man would never give up on his other women for Lin
â€œDo you know thatâ€¦â€ Lin Ruoxi circled her hair as she looked at Liu
Mingyu who had her head lowered. Softly, she said, â€œBefore you told me,
I was only suspecting you two. I never knew if my suspicions were rightâ€
Liu Mingyu violently raised her head while her eyes were enlarged in
astonishment and mouth was slightly opened. Dumbfounded, she held the
look of awkwardness and complex emotions.â€™
Did I just make a confession willingly?!
Liu Mingyu scolded Yang Chen a hundred times in her heart. Why didnâ€™t
that bad guy tell me earlier? She still doesnâ€™t know about my
relationship with him! she thought.
However, since she had made the confession herself, Liu Mingyu put on a
brave face and said, â€œBoss Linâ€¦ Iâ€¦ I know that Iâ€™m sorry to you.
I have suffered from accusations and rumors in the company for the past
few years, but you have never showed doubt on my performance, and even
allowed me to have retained my current positionâ€¦ Butâ€¦ but I really
didnâ€™t know Yang Chen was your husbandâ€¦â€
Lin Ruoxi tossed back with a question. â€œIf you knew, would you still
have gone for him?â€
Liu Mingyu was lost in words.
Sheâ€™s rightâ€¦ Would I have foolishly followed this married man again
if I knew he was Lin Ruoxiâ€™s husband? Would I have avoided him as much
as possible? Or would I still act surreptitious like what Iâ€™m doing
now? she thought.
â€œYou canâ€™t think of an answer, can you?â€ Lin Ruoxi asked. â€œYou
only became what you are now because you chose him, not because of my
â€œBoss Lin, Iâ€¦â€
â€œThereâ€™s nothing left to be said. Thereâ€™s also nothing for me to
say on this matter,â€ Lin Ruoxi said. She then fell into contemplation.
â€œEven I havenâ€™t managed to figure out why I decided to marry that
man. So to me, regardless how he interacts with other women, it doesnâ€™t
Liu Mingyu frowned as she didnâ€™t expect such a reaction from Lin Ruoxi.
Not only was she not scolded or treated coldly, Lin Ruoxi didnâ€™t seem
like she was blaming Liu Mingyu at all, which made her feel like she was
having an illusion. Are they really married? Why would a wife behave so
calmly and naturally when her husband has women outside? Liu Mingyu
Lin Ruoxi seemed to have felt Liu Mingyuâ€™s doubt. She snorted as she
felt contempt for herself. â€œTo be honest, when I found out you were
indeed Yang Chenâ€™s lover, I certainly did feel unhappy deep inside. No
women in the world would love to see their man messing around outside.
But how am I really supposed to express my discontent?
â€œI donâ€™t know how to scold someone, nor will I be able to do so, let
alone fight you like an insane woman. I even failed to find a way to show
â€œDo you know that Iâ€™ve been trying really hard to be a good wife, but
things always go the complete opposite? Sometimes I feel thatâ€¦ I was
born without the mentality of a woman. Maybe those things that I donâ€™t
have, happen to be what you all have, so Yang Chen decided to get
together with you all instead of staying loyal to me.â€
Liu Mingyu managed to feel the disappointment and loneliness buried in
Lin Ruoxiâ€™s words, and the kind of helpless sorrow, causing the
supposedly disadvantaged Liu Mingyu to feel empathetic for Lin Ruoxi.
At this moment, Liu Mingyu wanted to say something to make Lin Ruoxi feel
better, and the environment less awkward to put this matter at rest.
However, a familiar figure approached her from junction in front.
Liu Mingyu instantly turned displeased. She frowned slightly and turned
her head away as she was unwilling to talk to that person.
Lin Ruoxi noticed her weird expression. Curious, she turned her head
around and saw a man nicely dressed in a stripe suit walk to her
â€œMingyu? Have you come to enjoy as well? How coincidental. I didnâ€™t
think we could bump into each other here,â€ the man said happily and
walked toward the center of Liu Mingyu and Lin Ruoxi, with a wicked smile
on his face.
â€œQi Kai, I have no business with you. Would you please leave me
alone?â€ Liu Mingyu asked coldly.
This man was Liu Mingyuâ€™s ex boyfriend Qi Kai who appear a while ago.
However, he got injured after being whacked by Yang Chen earlier. After
that, he failed to seek help from the police, so he started behaving
himself a little and stopped looking for Liu Mingyuâ€™s trouble.
Unexpectedly, they had crossed paths today. Moreover, he looked every bit
more sinister than before.
As Qi Kai spoke, he reached his arm out as he wanted to touch Liu
Liu Mingyu hurriedly took a step back and stared at Qi Kai in caution.
â€œGo away. Have you forgotten how you were beaten by Yang Chen until you
spat blood?! You know what? Heâ€™s just in the private room behind me. If
you dare to continue, I wonâ€™t hesitate to call him over.â€
Qi Kaiâ€™s eyes looked as if they were on fire. â€œSo heâ€™s here too.
Humph. Iâ€™ve been finding time to look for that villager one day. I
guess itâ€™s better to do it now than later.â€
Lin Ruoxi who was listening to the conversation was in contemplation. She
seemed to have understood how Yang Chenâ€™s relationship with Liu Mingyu
started. Her seemingly useless husband had been another womanâ€™s knight
in shining armour.
Lin Ruoxi sighed slightly as she noticed the blaze in Liu Mingyuâ€™s
eyes. I guess she mustâ€™ve been severely hurt by this Qi Kai guy in the
past. Sheâ€™s a pitiful woman as well. Why would I choose to do more harm
to her then? Lin Ruoxi thought.
â€œMingyu, letâ€™s go back to the room and ignore him,â€ Lin Ruoxi said
softly after walking closer to Liu Mingyu and holding her arm.
Qi Kai finally noticed Lin Ruoxi. He didnâ€™t pay much attention to her
when she had her back facing him. His eyes instantly revealed a violent
passion, as if a starved beast had just discovered a fresh and alive
sheep. He even started panting a little.
â€œWhere is this beauty from again? Mingyu, why havenâ€™t you introduce
her to me?â€
