Alas, like stars crowding the moon, that rose had no lack of suitors.
With her nature being aloof and proud, she did not spare him a glance at all. This, in turn, made him feel very bitter.
He was merely the boss of a small company then. Without a big background, he did not have much ability to compete with those big bosses of the upper society.
However, just as his career flourished, the woman vanished from the capital without a trace.
Even though the girl before him could not compare to Qingcheng in terms of beauty, her appearance and grace were pretty close to her.
It could be said that the two would look identical provided that this girl dressed up a little!
He would have thought that this woman was Qingcheng if not for their relatively big age gap!
It was common for women to be sent as gifts when dealing with business. In this era, how many companies' PR departments were clean?
Since Kong Xiaoqian had gifted him this woman, there was no need for him to fake gallantry!
Looking at her pure little face, he was greatly satisfied. The thought of her lying in bed in a seductive pose aroused him a little already.
If not for the sake of putting up appearances, he would end this boring banquet and enjoy his pleasure with this charming, little woman!
This woman, however, did not seem to give him face; she never touched the wine in front of her at all.
No matter how they urged her, she repeatedly refused them, saying that she could not drink.
He he! What a joke! Can't drink?
The entertainment industry was indubitably half a vanity fair, yet she said that she could not drink?
It appeared that this woman had the intention to hide from him!
He was in no hurry, though!
Being the CEO of the Li Group, what woman could he not settle?
Those women only had their eyes on money and power; anything could be settled by giving them some benefits!
Women loved nothing but checks, villas, luxury cars, gems, and jewelry!
He was no longer his past self. With his current impressive standing, what could she be unsatisfied with?
At this point, he smilingly asked, "Miss Yun, can you sing?"
She eked out a smile while secretly cursing, Must I report to you whether I can sing or not? What does it have to do with you, and just when will this session end?
Noting her distracted look, he poured himself a full glass of wine before raising it at her and smiling with a raised brow. "Miss Yun, may I have the honor to have a toast with you?"
With her attention divided between looking at the time and the dark sky from the window, she turned awkward when she found the big boss toasting to her. She pursed her lips and apologetically replied, "Director Li, I'm sorry, but I can't drink today!"
"This is inappropriate, isn't it?"
Dissatisfaction settled in his heart. This little woman actually refused to give him face? With a squint of his eyes, he quipped, "You should at least drink a glass; don't spoil the fun! Does it make sense to refuse alcohol at the table?"
She was caught in a terrible fix. Since he put his words this way, she would not be giving him face if she refused to drink!
What the man said was not wrong, too. Since she had attended this dinner party, she would naturally have to follow the rules of the table. In fact, she was in the wrong for refusing to drink the wine, and her refusal was a snub to him, but…
