My Wife is a Beautiful CEO - chapter-869-heaven
â€œPfft, stop spewing your nonsense here. They are veterans in this
field. They have graced red carpets across the globe with their superstar
charisma. If I could play on an even field with them, I would be more
than satisfied.â€ Lin Ruoxi glared at her husband before breaking free
from his embrace.
â€œWell if anyone dares to say that they look better than you do, Iâ€™ll
gauge their eyes out!â€ Yang Chen promptly replied.
Lin Ruoxi softly jabbed Yang Chenâ€™s chest in response. â€œMy god,
canâ€™t you speak like a normal person?â€
â€œIâ€™m kidding, Iâ€™m kidding. Oh yeah, one more thing. You ainâ€™t mad
at me anymore, are you?â€ Yang Chen chuckled.
Lin Ruoxi gave him a half-hearted glare before she shook her head.
â€œItâ€™s not the first time something like this has happened. I have to
get used to it eventually. I canâ€™t help myself but get mad at you. But,
itâ€™ll probably take a while before I can finally truly put everything
behind me. Besides, you saw Li Jianhe in attendance but didnâ€™t question
me about it. Since you trust me so much, I got to learn to let go too,
donâ€™t you think?â€
Yang Chen brightly grinned to her explanation. â€œOh, I never thought
youâ€™d think I was being generous. If the bastard even had the slightest
sketchy thought about you, Iâ€™ll snap his neck, so I wasnâ€™t worried at
â€œYouâ€¦â€ Lin Ruoxi clenched her teeth as she turned away, disgusted
by his constant gory mentality.
Yang Chen giggled with a bright smile as he held her by the shoulder with
a solemn look on his face. â€œFrankly though, we might not have been
married long but our marriage has gone through more than most couples can
say. Many things which were once mountains are nothing more than
molehills now. Iâ€™m glad we compromised.â€
â€œWow, donâ€™t you dare act all smug on me. I didnâ€™t even get to
interrogate you yet! Where on earth were you spending the night
before?â€ Lin Ruoxi confronted him.
Yang Chen took a woeful sigh as he started contemplating his options.
Lin Ruoxi then promptly raised her back heel and stamped right onto Yang
Chenâ€™s leather shoes!
â€œHey! Wifey youâ€™re breaking it!â€
Lin Ruoxi brutally taunted, â€œOh so the shoes matter more than your feet
now, donâ€™t they?â€
Yang Chen shook his head. â€œOf courseâ€¦ I wouldnâ€™t feel any painâ€¦â€
â€œYou!â€ Lin Ruoxi slammed her foot down even harder the second time.
Yang Chen quickly understood that it was her way to vent her frustration.
He smiled bitterly and cried from the â€کpainâ€™.
Only then did she finally nod in satisfaction. â€œYou deserved it.â€
The rare chit-chat between the couple was inevitably cut short as the
gala was about to start. According to schedule, as host, Lin Ruoxi was to
officiate the event with a timely speech.
Originally, as newcomers in the entertainment industry, it would be a
daunting task to invite A-list celebrities and international megastars to
even bat an eye on an event like this.
But with a slight push from Yang Chen by inviting the biggest names of
the fashion industry, Yu Lei Entertainment had quickly gained a foothold
among the worldâ€™s leading names.
After all, it was a dream of many celebrities to collaborate with one of
these internationally renowned designers.
At a gathering of this scale, it naturally attracted a frenzy of
entertainment reporters as they flooded the heart of Yu Lei Convention
Nonetheless, as the CEO of the organization, Lin Ruoxi had a custom
passageway towards the heart of the action.
As soon as she made her way into the banquet hall, Zhao Hongyan who was
closely monitoring the flow instantly signaled the background staff to
stop the music, and ready the stage for Lin Ruoxiâ€™s inauguration speech.
Close to a hundred guests in attendance quickly noticed the music fading
as they reactively turned towards the massive stage.
Under the focused spotlights, Lin Ruoxi took a deep breath and walked
towards the center.
As the snow-white dinner gown graced the stage, glistening in focused
lights, the bearer herself, an elegant yet commanding presence, made the
center stage her home. She faced the multitude before her. The atmosphere
was dead silent.
Big-name actors and actresses, renowned directors and conglomerate
leaders, that were just moments ago jolly and frigid were now focused
beyond belief, solely upon the leading woman herself.
The flamboyantly dressed female celebrities were instantly denounced by
the blinding presence that was Lin Ruoxi!
This commanding presence was not one built only upon her divine
appearance, but accompanied by elegance from her adolescence and total
confidence from within.
Caught in the crowd were Li Jianhe and Shen Yaxin who were glowing with a
range of emotions ranging from jealousy to anger.
Even those who had had the privilege of seeing Ruoxi in her prime were
still shocked into speechlessness.
As the crowd feasted their eyes on the spellbinding Lin Ruoxi, notable
directors mesmerizingly watched in hopes that they could nab her for
their next casting. She would be an instant hit!
But the aspirations were quickly brushed off with the reminder that Lin
Ruoxi was herself an uber-successful entrepreneur sitting on a net worth
of tens of billions.
Celebrities, no matter how bright they shone or how quick they would
leave impressions in the minds of many, at the end of the day they were
only just entertainers. The people who pulled their strings in the
background were the real stars.
Even in todayâ€™s day and age, men with true power and wealth would never
bat an eye upon the celebrities adored by the majority. Fame and the lack
thereof was but a Sunday afternoon game for the powerful.
Lin Ruoxi participating in the entertainment world would be like a
puppeteer relegating herself to the finite realms of puppets.
Back on the center stage was Lin Ruoxi, slightly nervous as she became
the heart of the attention. She summarized her speech into a few short
points in hopes of leaving the stage as soon as possible.
That was exactly what she did. After a brief speech to inaugurate the
event, she hastily made her way off the stage, albeit in a professional
Even then, many who were immersed in her divine beauty forgot the simple
etiquette of clapping after her speech.
Nevertheless, the hectic mishmash of a day had finally come to a fruitful
After she left the stage, she demanded Yang Chen to accompany her as they
met with crucial business partners and big names from the media.
Yang Chen might not be the most attentive, but Lin Ruoxi still wished for
the man to put more effort into potential future endeavors, and not spend
much of his time lusting over other women.
Yang Chen paid close attention to Lin Ruoxiâ€™s demands, following her
closely as she interacted with a variety of successful people, most of
whom he was not familiar with. They engaged in small talk as he fulfilled
his role in boosting Lin Ruoxiâ€™s status in their minds.
Right at that moment, a fifty-year-old man with a ponytail, escorted by
an elegant, poised woman dressed in a fiery-red low-cut gown, made their
way to Lin Ruoxi.
â€œPresident Lin, we met six months ago, you still remember me?â€ The
man engaged in an inviting tone.
Lin Ruoxin had a glow in her eyes as she hurriedly introduced. â€œHubby,
this is the acclaimed director Yu Shuo. Our promotional video was shot by
him. The video even went on to win the best promotional video in the
country. Just this year Director Yu won Best Director in both the Cannes
and Tokyo film festivals. Heâ€™s one of the most sought-after in
Hollywood right now.â€
â€œOh President Lin, stop flattering me. I wouldnâ€™t have done all of
that if it werenâ€™t for the leaders and my business partners,â€ Yu Shuo
Yang Chen, however, was rather flabbergasted that the modest-looking
fellow was actually an acclaimed director of his own right. Even as
someone unfamiliar with the entertainment industry, he understood the
significance of receiving key awards at a major film festival.
â€œI wonder if Iâ€™m unworthy of your attention, Ms Lin. Are you just
going to be chatting with Director Yu?â€ joked the exquisite woman in
the red dress by his side engaged her with a smile, in a bold, feminine
Lin Ruoxi, without a slight change in emotion, replied, â€œWhy would I? I
was just going to introduce you to my husband. Hubby, this is Ms Lu Yao,
Iâ€™m sure you are familiar with her work.â€
Yang Chen took a quick glance at her and came to the conclusion that she
seemed familiar. â€œI feel like Iâ€™ve seen you somewhere in the
Lu Yao was slightly displeased but kept her smile intact. â€œI understand
that Mr Yang has a wide connection. I suppose it is possible for people
to fly under your radar.â€
Lin Ruoxi subtly pinched Yang Chen by the waist, agitated by his brutal
honesty. â€œMs Lu Yao is the biggest female singer of the year, crowned
as the queen of the college movie festival. She has even received the
platinum award from Hong Kong and Taiwan.â€
Yang Chen responsively slammed himself at the head. â€œOh, I know you.
You have that one song called â€کWithout You in Heavenâ€™ right?â€
Lu Yao finally cracked a genuine smile as she coyly added, â€œOh it turns
out Mr Yang has heard of my song, but I suppose young men like you
probably wouldnâ€™t appreciate it as much. Its original audience was
targeted to young women.â€
That was clearly formal talk. But Yang Chen, however, took it rather
serious as he replied, â€œOh well, I really didnâ€™t like it. The melody
was decent, but your pitch wasnâ€™t clear. If it were Hui Liâ€”sorryâ€¦
Lin Hui, it would have sounded much better.â€
