He spoiled her by agreeing to her every demand no matter what it was.
She thought that she would always be his one and only beloved.
Even without giving her a title or status, she was willing as long as she could stay by his side!
She did not expect her position at his side to be usurped by another woman!
He seemed to indulge that woman more than her, giving in to her in every whim.
I'm jealous—insanely jealous!
Why? Why can she have his love easily, but I can't?!
It isn't fair!
The more she thought about it, the worse she felt. Thus, heartbroken, she started bawling over the phone.
He could not help furrowing his brows and said in a hushed voice, "Stop fooling around and go home!"
"Brother Mu, can you come over and keep me company?" She was close to pleading humbly. "Just this time, can you come over and keep me company?"
He was silent as he glanced past his shoulder to the figure lying in bed. His forehead lined with cold creases.
Someone suddenly snatched her phone away and a man's voice could be heard this time.
"Hey, are you Enya's friend? She's very drunk now; I'm afraid that she'll get into trouble if she doesn't stop drinking! She won't let us send her back and doesn't want to leave the bar, either. She'll get into trouble if this continues…"
He was still noncommittal when the man added, "Come and take care of Enya! Getting so drunk isn't a good thing. If people find out that the mayor's daughter has gotten herself so intoxicated at a hotel bar, isn't this going to ruin her reputation? Come over quickly and send her home! It'll be too late to regret if something happens!"
The last remark was particularly poignant. The man frowned and looked at Yun Shishi one more time before he leisurely replied, "I'll come over immediately."
With that, he hung up and walked to the side of the bed where she was lying. He covered her with a blanket, gave a light peck on her forehead, and turned to leave the bedroom, closing the door behind him.
When he was gone, Yun Shishi slowly opened her eyes, and lonesome silence greeted her.
Inside the bar, Song Enya was elated when she heard that the man was coming over soon.
This shows that I still mean something to him!
He sped along the way.
After parking at the bar entrance, he sat inside the car and refused to step off for some time.
He knew how his niece felt toward him, and he did make his stance clear to her.
Perhaps, my stance wasn't clear enough?
The woman continued to hold illusions about him.
To him, she was merely a substitute for his mother.
That was only because she had a face closely resembling his mother. Whenever he saw her, it would remind him of Jiang Yishan. Thus, he had indulged and spoiled her.
He would follow her wishes whatever they were!
He still cared about her, though there were boundaries to that.
After getting off the car, he walked into the bar.
It was already past midnight, and the place's atmosphere was starting to warm up. To avoid the paparazzi, many entertainers would leave their house late at night. Hence, this was the time when it started to get crowded.
He walked to the bar counter and found the woman slumped on the bar top.
He slowly walked over to her side and shoved her shoulder.
She woke up in a daze. When she saw him, tears started rolling down her face, and she plunged headlong into his arms, crying and laughing.
