The situation had turned rather awkward and tense.
Come to think about it, indeed, how would the almighty crown prince of Disheng Financial Group remember a mere daughter of a provincial governor?
This woman, Ye Minglan, was the beloved daughter of the governor of Jianghai province.
Originally, she had reserved this room in this restaurant for an exorbitant price. She planned to entertain her good friend, who had returned recently overseas, here, but her reservation was unexpectedly and impolitely canceled by the restaurant owner just before she arrived. Thus, she came storming into the room in a fit of rage, only to discover that the person who had snatched away her reservation was the chairman of Disheng – Mu Yazhe!
After all, he seldom came to small restaurants like this for a meal. Moreover, from what she could remember, this man was busy dealing with important matters every day, so how was it possible for him to have the leisure to eat here?
She was pleasantly surprised to meet him. However, after feeling surprised, her eyes landed on Yun Shishi again, and she became a little confused.
Who was this gal sitting beside him?
Looking at her, she was dressed like an ignorant student. She looked lovely despite not appearing to be a young mistress – she looked like a normal citizen, actually.
Ye Minglan was a little taken aback. For someone of Master Mu's status, as long as he desired it, many belles – international supermodels, famous film actresses, or even rich female socialites – would eagerly appear before him with a crook of his finger. However, this young-looking gal was probably only a fresh graduate.
Having prided herself for being discerning, she must admit that this teenage girl was an absolute eye candy. She had fair and clear skin, enticing eyes, rosy lips, and pearly white teeth; she was attractive even without makeup.
Many men would jump the bones of such a beauty if she were to enter the industry she was in!
Yun Shishi was made uncomfortable by her scrutinizing stare. Turning her head away from the woman in discomfort, she felt another pair of heated eyes on her and instinctively faced the direction of the stare, only to discover that the man beside Ye Minglan was sizing her up unwaveringly. Rather than saying that he was sizing her up, it was more accurate to say that the man's eyes held a hint of desire to devour her alive!
The man had a towering physique and a handsome appearance. Although he dressed for comfort, he still had a noble bearing – from this, it could be inferred that came from a wealthy family.
When their eyes happened to meet, she subconsciously averted her gaze away. Suddenly, she harbored ill feelings against these two who had so rudely barged into the room!
Realizing the awkwardness of the situation, Ye Minglan forced out a bright smile and asked in a saccharine voice, "Master Mu, do you remember me? My father is Ye Qicheng. He should be acquainted with you. Oh, yes… If you don't mind, let's share the table! You see, at this time, there aren't any empty rooms left in the restaurant! He he… This room, which I have reserved earlier, is also…"
She said it in a very roundabout manner; her words of proposal also held propriety and courtesy.
Mu Yazhe did not bat an eyelid; he neither accepted nor rejected her proposal. In fact, he seemed to have given her his silent consent.
Seeing this, Ye Minglan was quite overwhelmed with the unexpected favor!
She took a step forward to sound him out. When she noticed that he remained composed, her heart, which was previously held in suspension, reverted to being calm. Her eyes then brightened and, together with the man next to her, she walked into the room.
Mu Yazhe obviously had no impression of Ye Minglan; they did not know each other very well and did not meet often enough. As for her father, Ye Qicheng was someone he had close associations with. Taking this into consideration, he was unable to not give her face.
Yun Shishi, however, was not very keen on sharing the table for a meal.
She did not like the two intruders.
This was especially the case for the woman – the look she was giving her seemed to wish for her destruction!
She had to admit that this situation did not sit very well with her, but what was making her more upset was his tacit consent for the pair to share the table with them.
