Chapter 1294: Because you were born extraordinary!
“You don’t have to worry about the car either… I’m about to sign a perfume endorsement contract with a subsidiary company under the Kaide Corporation. The perfumer, Mr. Madebet, said that the perfume’s inspiration came from me, so the endorsement will definitely be mine! After I get paid for it, we’ll buy a car that you like!” Cai Jingyao seemed a little embarrassed, her face turning red.
Lu Jinbei was about to refuse when Cai Jingyao looked at him seriously and said, “Then you can drive and pick me up every day, okay? Even if you don’t like this house, we’ll have the money to buy a new home! I only hope you won’t give up what you like! Okay?”
How could Lu Jinbei not feel touched that a woman was willing to sacrifice so much for him without reservation?
His throat choked with tenderness.
Cai Jingyao pinched Lu Jinbei’s hand hard. “Money, we’ll have it! I believe in your talent in games. One day, you’ll be able to create a game that will shock the world. When that happens… I won’t do anything. I’ll spend my time at home, like a good housewife. How about that? Just like how you are with games, becoming the spokesperson for this perfume is also my dream. I’ve already fulfilled my dream, so I hope that my Xiao Bei can also realize his dream!”
These words soothed Lu Jinbei’s pride.
“Do you really believe that… I have the capability to create a good game?” Lu Jinbei asked.
“I believe you!” Cai Jingyao answered firmly. “Because you were born extraordinary!”
Lu Jinbei gritted his teeth and reached out to pull Cai Jingyao into his arms, hugging her tightly…
Cai Jingyao rested her head on Lu Jinbei’s shoulder, a teasing smile on her lips.
After dinner, Lu Jinbei took the initiative to wash the dishes. Cai Jingyao was cutting fruits in the kitchen. Halfway through… Cai Jingyao’s phone rang.
“I’ll go take the call…” Cai Jingyao wiped her hands with a kitchen towel and went to the balcony to answer the call.
Lu Jinbei had no idea what the other person was saying, but when he looked up, he saw Cai Jingyao’s face gradually turning pale. An expression of disbelief on her face. She was arguing with the person on the other end of the line.
Lu Jinbei’s brows were tightly furrowed. He washed his foam-covered hands, wiped them, and walked out of the kitchen.
Cai Jingyao pretended to hang up the call and rubbed her eyes hard. When she came out of the balcony, she saw Lu Jinbei standing in the living room, frowning as he asked her, “What’s the matter?”
Cai Jingyao bit her lower lip and shook her head without saying anything.
“What’s the matter? Tell me!” Lu Jinbei was a little anxious.
Cai Jingyao then choked up and said, “It was my manager calling to inform me that the new perfume’s spokesperson has been confirmed, but it wasn’t me…”
Lu Jinbei was puzzled. “How can that be? Didn’t you say that the perfume’s inspiration came from you?”
When Cai Jingyao heard this, her tears were like strings of broken pearls. “The perfumer, Mr. Madebet, told my manager that it was the Kaide Corporation’s upper management’s decision. The order came directly from the top. Even Mr. Madebet couldn’t persuade them…”
Cai Jingyao covered her face with her hands and squatted down, sobbing softly. “I’m sorry, Xiao Bei. I can’t buy the car you like anymore… I’m sorry…”
Hearing Cai Jingyao’s cries, Lu Jinbei’s heart wrenched…
Cai Jingyao’s endorsement contract had flown away, but instead of feeling sad for herself, she was crying so hard because she couldn’t buy him a car!
Lu Jinbei squatted down next to Cai Jingyao. He wrapped his arms around her tightly and pulled her into his arms. His mind was filled with Cai Jingyao’s words about how the order had come from the upper management of the Kaide Corporation.
Who could the upper management of the Kaide Corporation be?
Other than him, who else could hate Cai Jingyao so much?
The source of inspiration for the perfume was Cai Jingyao. Even the perfumer recommended her. What right did Lu Jinnan have to remove Cai Jingyao from that position just like that?
Lu Jinbei gritted his teeth and held Cai Jingyao’s shoulder. “Don’t worry, I’ll get you justice!”
Lu Jinbei then stood up and stormed out…
“Xiao Bei, where are you going?” Cai Jingyao stood up, asking in terror.
“I’ll go look for Lu Jinnan! I want him to return the endorsement that belongs to you!” Lu Jinbei slammed the door and left.
Cai Jingyao was the only one left in the room. She raised her brows and slowly wiped away her tears. She then went to the bathroom to tidy up her appearance and put on her makeup.
She didn’t put on lipstick and merely applied some powder on her lips to make herself appear paler and more pitiful. Only then did she take out her phone and pretend to run after Lu Jinbei.
When Lu Jinbei arrived at Lu Jinnan’s place, he received news that Lu Jinnan had brought Bai Xiaonian to the Kaide Corporation and had yet to return.
Lu Jinbei gritted his teeth. It was indeed Lu Jinnan!
Today, Lu Jinnan had gone to the Kaide Corporation, and Cai Jingyao’s endorsement deal fell through.
Lu Jinbei, who had been holding back his anger, was so mad that he stormed out of the door. Like a maniac, he wreaked havoc in Lu Jinnan’s front garden.
Before Lu Jinbei came out, Lu Jinnan and Bai Xiaonian had already arrived. Lu Jinnan had just parked the car in the parking space in front of their house when Bai Xiaonian saw Lu Jinbei come out of the front door. She saw him fuming with anger, so she grabbed Lu Jinnan’s hand and told Lu Jinnan to avoid Lu Jinbei, lest he got himself in trouble.
But Lu Jinnan was also concerned about Bai Xiaonian, who had just come back from the hospital. He was afraid that Lu Jinbei would anger her, so he stopped her from going out of the car. He planned to leave again and return after Lu Jinbei left.
Who knew that Lu Jinbei would act like a lunatic, ruining the flowers Lu Jinnan had planted with Bai Xiaonian in their garden? Lu Jinnan frowned, feeling bad about it. He then got out of the car. “Lu Jinbei, are you out of your mind? Why did you come to my house so late at night instead of sleeping?”
Upon seeing Lu Jinnan, Lu Jinbei’s eyes burned with fury. He walked out of the villa’s gate and pointed at Lu Jinnan’s nose, scolding him, “Lu Jinnan, aren’t you being too petty! Cai Jingyao is my woman! Mine! Even if you don’t like her, it has nothing to do with you. It’s not like she’ll be spending her entire life with you. What right do you have to snatch her job just to force her to leave me?”
Lu Jinnan understood what Lu Jinbei meant after hearing his words.
His eyes narrowed. “Is that what that woman told you?”
“Don’t call her ‘that woman’! She’s famous and has the name Cai Jingyao! She’s my woman!” Lu Jinbei stiffened his neck. “Moreover, Jing Yao told me that even the perfumer, Madebet, said that the source of inspiration for the perfume is her. What right do you have to prevent her from getting the endorsement deal? How can you take revenge on her in such a lowly manner?”
When Bai Xiaonian got out of the car, she heard Lu Jinbei hurling insults at Lu Jinnan at the top of his lungs, and her anger surged.
