The bodyguards outside the room recognised Lin Ruoxi and Yang Chen as
they had met in the past. The bodyguards nodded and opened the door for
As Lin Ruoxi entered the room, Yang Chen stopped and hesitated. He took
out a crumpled pack of cigarettes that he usually smoked, from the pocket
of his coat and had a look at the remains before sighing in relief.
Smilingly, he pulled out the remaining two cigarettes and handed over,
one with each hand, to the two bodyguards.
â€œBeing a doorkeeper isnâ€™t easy, you guys have done exemplary work.
Have a cigarette and relax,â€ Yang Chen spoke in Korean with a smile.
It wasnâ€™t the first time for the two bodyguards to receive cigarettes
from other people. However, it was definitely their first time getting
such low-quality tobacco. Because they had to behave politely, they
couldnâ€™t refuse and all they could do was to accept the cigarettes
reluctantly as they smiled awkwardly while giving thanks.
Lin Ruoxi who was walking in front turned around and saw that scene. She
instantly felt the urge to bury the thick-skinned man deep into the
â€œWhat are you doing?â€ Lin Ruoxi couldnâ€™t hold back and stared at
Yang Chen with her beautiful looking face.
Yang Chen let out an innocent cry, â€œAhh!â€ He explained, â€œYou told
me to build a good relations with Yoo Yeonhee. So I figured the first
place to start would be the bodyguards. Iâ€™m just giving them two
cigarettes. I would have bought another two packet of cigarettes if I had
known about this earlier. Now that I had given them the last two
cigarettes, there arenâ€™t any left for me.â€
Looking at Yang Chenâ€™s gloomy face, Lin Ruoxi no longer knew how to
communicate with him. All she could do was take a deep breath to calm
herself down. She then turned around and continued walking inside.
Yang Chen rubbed his nose helplessly and thought, You canâ€™t blame me
for that, can you? I only have this cheap stuff on me right now. Either
way, mass consumption is nothing to look down on. However, he quickly
followed up to Lin Ruoxi.
After bypassing a barrier, they finally get to see the main person of the
concert Yoo Yeonhee.
Yoo Yeonhee was seated in front of a mirror and was getting her final
touch up done by a hairstylist. Although the long black hair was
seemingly tied up in a simple way, the truth was, it took a lot of effort
in order for it to look fashionable and yet simple.
The staff were busy walking around preparing for the concert that no one
paid too much attention to the entry of Yang Chen and Lin Ruoxi.
Instead, Yoo Yeonhee was the one who saw Lin Ruoxi and Yang Chen from the
mirror. She waved her hand to signal her hairstylist to stop.
Yoo Yeonhee stood up from her seat as her hairstylist stepped back. She
looked dazzling in the sexy pinkish-white dress. Her snowy white
shoulders, her towering upper body and even her smooth legs were all
finely crafted artwork.
Even if Yang Chen didnâ€™t have a favorable impression for this woman, he
had to admit that if she had looked like this with no cosmetic surgery,
then she was born very exceptional looking.
It was a shame that Lin Ruoxi who was wearing an old-fashioned suit,
without any makeup didnâ€™t look much inferior to Yoo Yeonhee. That was
probably why Yoo Yeonhee looked this pale and weak at the moment despite
being dressed up in such a grand manner.
Yoo Yeonhee who saw Lin Ruoxi naturally realized the difference between
them. Evidently, her sensitive heart were making her feel uneasy but she
didnâ€™t present it on the outside. Instead, she walked towards them
smilingly with her irritation buried in her heart.
â€œThe manager told me that Boss Lin and Director Yang of Yu Lei
International will be coming over to cheer me on. Although weâ€™ve had
our differences in the past, I still want to thank the two of you for
paying a visit,â€ Yoo Yeonhee said.
â€œMiss Yoo, donâ€™t let the misunderstandings between us affect our
relationship. There will be a lot of opportunities for us to collaborate
in the future. Being the sponsor of the event, itâ€™s only appropriate
that weâ€™re here,â€ Lin Ruoxi said faintly before turning her head to
signal Yang Chen.
Yang Chen smiled bitterly in his heart as he walked towards to greet Yoo
Yeonhee. â€œI hope that your concert will be a successful one.â€
The corner of her mouth raised slightly as if she had gotten her pride
back. Smiling, she said, â€œI hope you mean it.â€
â€œMiss Yoo, you must be kidding. Iâ€™m never a hypocrite,â€ Yang Chen
answered with a smile.
Yoo Yeonheeâ€™s smile was slightly stiff. Yang Chen was obviously being
sarcastic and he wasnâ€™t planning to take his words back.
The concert was just around the corner and Yoo Yeonhee knew that it
wasnâ€™t the time to argue. She turned around to a female assistant who
had been waiting for her beside and said, â€œYing Li, bring me three
glasses of champagne.â€
The average-looking female assistant called Ying Li was wearing a black
professional uniform. She seemed to be extremely respectful towards Yoo
Yeonhee as she dared not to raise her head when facing her. Without
delay, she agreed to her request.
â€œAlthough we normally drink champagne for celebration after the
concert, I donâ€™t believe that you will be here for that. So letâ€™s
have a drink now as a token of appreciation for your visit,â€ Yoo
Yeonhee said with a smile.
Her words sounded polite but she was clearly asking them to leave
immediately upon finishing the drink.
Lin Ruoxi wasnâ€™t annoyed by Yoo Yeonheeâ€™s attitude. Instead, she
looked at Yang Chen, feeling a little worried. Originally, she thought
that Yang Chen would be disgusted. However, Yang Chen seemed to be
thinking about something absent-mindedly at the moment.
Yang Chen realised that Lin Ruoxi was glaring at him doubtfully. He
smiled while shaking his head. â€œItâ€™s nothing. Iâ€™m just thinking of
Miss Yooâ€™s consideration.â€
Although Lin Ruoxi didnâ€™t believe that Yang Chen would be thinking
about something like that, she didn’t ask.
After a while, the female assistant Ying Li returned with three glasses
of crystal-clear champagne on a tray. The aroma of the champagne filled
Being the hostess, Yoo Yeonhee was about to pick up a glass of champagne
when Yang Chen suddenly grab the goblet from her.
â€œAye! Miss Yoo, this glass of champagne looks good. Let me have a try
first.â€ Yang Chen grabbed the goblet unceremoniously and poured the
champagne into his mouth.
Yoo Yeonhee scowled at him and said, â€œItâ€™s good that Director Yang
enjoys it so much.â€
Yang Chen put down the empty goblet and giggled. â€œIt tastes quite good.
Why not I finish these two as well, no?â€
Upon finishing his words, Yang Chen picked up the two glasses of
champagne, one at each hand and poured them into his mouth in front of
the two women.
Ying Li who was standing beside finally lifted her head upon watching
Yang Chenâ€™s act. She was dumbfounded by what she had witnessed.
Lin Ruoxi was somewhat annoyed. She didnâ€™t understand what was wrong
with Yang Chen. They couldâ€™ve left upon finishing the drinks and they
would have fulfilled their purpose of visiting. Does this man have to
make things any more stiff than it already is?
However, Lin Ruoxi didnâ€™t have much time to think about it. Yang Chen
suddenly had a painful look on his face with his facial expressions
tangled up. He furrowed his brows tightly and his face began to turn pale.
â€œAhh!â€ A loud painful howl echoed. Yang Chen suddenly held onto his
abdomen with his eyes widened as he fell on the ground.
Lin Ruoxi and Yoo Yeonhee were stunned by the sudden change in Yang Chen.
Yang Chen who was previously fine had both his hands pressing against the
ground and his body was shivering as if he was possessed by a demon!
â€œYaâ€”Yang Chen!â€ Lin Ruoxi who had regained her awareness hurriedly
knelt down before Yang Chen. Lin Ruoxi panicked so much that her poise
had crumbled. Her face turned pale from the lack of blood.
Lin Ruoxi held her hands on Yang Chenâ€™s body and exclaimed, â€œDonâ€™t
yâ€”you scare me! Whatâ€™s wrong?!â€
Yang Chen could hardly lift his head. His eyes were red and his white
lips trembled. â€œPoiâ€”poisonâ€¦ chamâ€”champagne,â€ Yang Chen
stammered and gasped.
A continuous sound echoed. It was the sound of the tray from the
assistant Ying Li falling to the ground and the glass being shattered
Ying Li looked extremely shocked at the event. She swallowed her saliva
but couldnâ€™t speak. Her body started to tremble as if her guilt had
taken control of her actions. She was whispering from her mouth but not a
single word could be heard.
The situation had attracted all the attention of the staff from the
dressing room. With Yang Chen lying on the floor and Ying Li looking
extremely miserable, everyone was as puzzled as they were curious.
Yoo Yeonhee finally put two and two together after coming out of shock.
She turned her head abruptly over to the assistant Yang Li. Her elegant
face was somewhat distorted in an instant.
Slap! Yoo Yeonhee delivered a loud slap to Ying Li, causing her to fall
on the floor!
â€œYou evil woman! How dare you poison me!â€ Yoo Yeonhee was so angry
that she had forgotten to speak in Mandarin and started to swear in
The others slowly came to the realisation that Ying Li was the one trying
to poison Yoo Yeonhee, but somehow harmed a guest instead.
Ying Li was completely swept off her feet after she received a hard slap
from Yoo Yeonhee. She held onto her burning red cheek and started crying.
â€œMiss Yoo, Iâ€”Iâ€™m sorryâ€¦ I had no choice. The lives of my entire
family were at stake here.â€
â€œJust because of this, youâ€™re going to poison me as instructed by
that person?! What makes you think you are safe even after I die?!â€ Yoo
Yeonhee who was burning in anger gave Ying Li a kick on the chest.
The heel on her high heels caused severe pain on Ying Liâ€™s chest,
causing her to cough out blood. The pain was so unbearable that she
The bodyguards on the outside finally rushed in. Looking at the chaotic
scene, they immediately expelled all the unrelated people effectively out
of the dressing room and promptly warned them against spreading this news.
In fact, most of them had been too frightened to violate the
bodyguardsâ€™ warning, fearing that they themselves would become the
victim. After all, cases like murder usually involved secrets that
shouldn’t be spread out.
Ying Li fainted after being kicked by Yoo Yeonhee a few times in the
chest. Covered with blood, she was dragged directly into another room by
a strong bodyguard.
Just when Yoo Yeonhee stabilized her emotions, she remembered there was
the â€کinnocentâ€™ Yang Chen who was at the scene. She then realised that
Yang Chen who had three glasses of the poisonous liquor had vanished from
â€œAre you looking for me?â€
Yoo Yeonhee turned her head as she heard Yang Chenâ€™s voice coming from
behind. To her surprise, she saw Yang Chen sitting at the dresser acting
like usual, as if nothing had happened. He greeted her like usual and
there were no signs of him getting poisoned.
Lin Ruoxi who was so frightened that she almost teared while ago was
standing right beside Yang Chen with a stern face as if she wanted to eat
him up. Evidently, she was very angry.
â€œHow did yoâ€”you… Didnâ€™t you…â€ Yoo Yeonhee spoke incoherently. She
initially thought that Yang Chen was dead. After all, if the poison was
meant for her, the murderer wouldnâ€™t have provided the time for
treatment. However, the situations that she was facing were like
illusions since Yang Chen was totally fine.
â€œThe reason why Iâ€™m still alive isnâ€™t important.â€ Yang Chen shook
his finger and asked, â€œMiss Yoo, I think what we need to talk about
isâ€”who is trying to kill you? After all, your aggressor had almost
taken us with you.â€
