The mutually beneficial relationship involved in this was too deep for him to meddle in.
As they left the company, Li Quan headed off to get the car while Yun Shishi waited for him at the company entrance.
While she waited, she decided to call Youyou. Only after the third call was made did it get answered.
The boy sounded a little tired as he spoke in a hoarse voice, "Hello?"
Her heart secretly ached after sensing the fatigue in his voice. She said, "Youyou, mommy will be home late tonight, so please rest early, okay? You don't have to wait for mommy."
"What time will you be home, mommy?"
"I should be back at 9:30 PM!"
"Oh…" He sounded a little unhappy as he replied slowly, "Youyou can't sleep well if mommy isn't early!"
She was stunned for a second before replying gently, "Mommy will make sure to be home earlier, but Youyou isn't allowed to wait too late!"
The boy replied, "Alright! Mommy must try making it home earlier, okay? Mwah!"
Just as she ended the call, Li Quan arrived with the car.
In the car, the secretary held onto the steering wheel tightly, his eyebrows furrowed as though he had something on his mind.
She sat by his side. The moment she thought of having to attend a social gathering and deal with those investors, she became extremely nervous. She turned to face the man and asked sincerely, "Secretary Li, this is my first time meeting an investor. If I say anything wrong, please let me know!"
He could not bear to look at her. As she saw the strange look on his face, she asked worriedly, "What's wrong? Do you feel unwell?"
He smiled in a preoccupied manner. As he saw how worried she was, his heart became filled with so much guilt.
Back at the company, Mu Xi had just returned. Just as she was passing by the elevator, planning to tidy things up and head home, she noticed Sun Hua and Kong Xiaoqian walking out of it.
The moment she saw the PR department head, she instinctively hid at the side.
She then heard the woman laugh. "Mr. Sun, aren't my actions a little ruthless? Li Dongliang is a man with vile interests. He is no better than He Lingxiang. I heard he had even injured a few starlets. Please tell Director Li to treat Yun Shishi a little better and not to swallow her until there aren't any bones left."
Mu Xi was so shocked she almost let out a yell. She covered her mouth and stopped her breathing with her swift reflexes. She heard Sun Hua reply, "Hmph. Isn't she eager to improve her status? Li Dongliang may be on the old side, but his worth is not little at all. With such a huge bone for her to take, she isn't being treated unfairly in any way!"
Kong Xiaoqian smiled.
The man continued, "That actress is truly rare! No wonder Director Li is so taken with her. Who asked her to be born with such a charming face? Men will always women her type!"
The PR department head teased, "Ha ha! Who knows? She might even replace his wife and really improve her status!"
The two figures gradually walked away. Mu Xi was so stunned that her eyes widened. She furiously gritted her teeth and cursed, "D*mn it!"
Did the PR department head send her charge to be an escort?!
Her colleagues once told her that that Li Dongliang was not a good person at all!
He had a rich history but a horrible personality. It was said that he loved to play around with women, and his methods were extremely brutal!
If her charge really ended up in his hands, she would be swallowed alive!
No! She must think of a solution quickly!
