Li Chengze grinned at her. With a graceful bearing, he gently inquired, "Whose family does this cute, little lady belong to?"
Yun Shishi was stunned. She wanted to ignore him; she was no young mistress for she was not born as a noble.
She remained apathetic as she did not want to encourage his attention, yet he interpreted this as her being shy and softened his voice even more, "May I ask, how do I address you?"
Ye Minglan was completely disregarded. She appeared to be expressionless, but she was secretly cursing him. How immoral! He is a man, indeed. Losing his mind just from seeing this lovely prey!
He dared covet Master Mu's woman…
Where did he get the guts to do so?
Yun Shishi took a sideward glance at the grave-looking Mu Yazhe beside her. Suddenly, she smiled cheekily and her eyes and brows formed curves. Her lips, which were stained with red wine, appeared to be supple and moist, so when she beamed, they looked rather seductive and enchanting. In fact, they were alluringly inviting.
"He he! Why should I tell you?"
She shrugged him off then.
Interesting! This girl is very interesting! She's quite haughty!
Li Chengze kept thinking about her as Ye Minglan rolled her eyes furtively. She mouthed a warning to him not to go too far with expressing his interest in her and to refrain from making Master Mu angry.
How was he afraid of him?
Li Chengze, who was spoiled and cherished growing up, was the typical playboy. He was used to treating others with contempt, so why would he put up with this Master Mu?
The Mu family? It was nothing more than a distinguished line of nobility of the previous generation. With the changing of times and the Old Mu getting on in years, could this b*stard still rely on the Mu's power and position?
The Li family was also one of the most powerful and honorable families within the capital. Each member of the family was a real piece of work!
How would Yun Shishi know what he was planning at all, though?
Sensing that prickling and malicious stare from Ye Minglan, Yun Shishi met with her doubtful and hostile eyes.
She was unjustly attacked, but she could not go down without a fight, could she?
If everything had come to this, then she might as well continue to act it out until the end.
Thus, under her straight stare, she delicately encircled Mu Yazhe in her arms. With a sickeningly sweet voice, she requested to him while smiling, "Help me peel a lobster?"
Mu Yazhe had played many schemes on the market before, so how was he not capable of understanding her intentions?
He shot her a cold glance from his peripheral, seemingly warning her to quit playing tricks.
He had never waited on anyone even now.
She was a little downcast due to her failed attempt.
Why would this man not coordinate with her at all?
Ye Minglan seemed satisfied.
She reckoned that this girl had overstepped her boundaries; she became insatiable with her position as Master Mu's woman. When had Master Mu ever waited on anyone in the past?
Putting down her chopsticks, Yun Shishi completely lost her appetite and gulped down an entire glass of iced water at hand.
However, after drinking it, she felt an unexplainable yet painful swelling from her tummy. She tried to ignore it and keep her spirits up.
Soon after, she clearly felt something strange in her lower abdomen, and at the sudden gush of tepid moisture from down there, her expression completely crumbled as she froze in place!
No way. Could that… have come?
As she withheld her suspicions, she was greatly perturbed and was on tenterhooks. Her entire body went stiff, and she was rendered immobile.
Alas, that sensation only increased in prominence.
Her face was suddenly hot and dry. She moved to get up, wanting to go check in the washroom exactly what had happened, but halfway from doing so, her eyes discovered a fresh red spot on the stool. Her face instantly burned, and she promptly sat back down!
Oh, god… How embarrassing!
She wanted to cry, but no tears would come out!
Why was she being such an embarrassment?! Oh, and this had to happen right in the company of this man and some outsiders!
She simply wanted to dig a hole to bury herself into!
Mu Yazhe noticed her abnormality and lowered his head to ask. "What's wrong?"
