He was clearly here to accompany his girlfriend, yet him steering the topic to her made her quite upset.
During the talk, he kept wanting to chat her up, but in fact, she was unwilling to have unnecessary dealing with him. After all, he was her friend's lover.
Besides, given her nature, she never liked to associate with unacquainted opposite gender. Perhaps due to the happenings back in college, she now preferred to keep her distance from most of the male population to avoid being the target of gossip.
Seeing the faint displeasure on her face, Gao Nan smirked.
He could tell that she was avoiding him.
She was pretending to be noble and virtuous!
He thought nothing about it.
She was in the show business, after all, and given her looks, she was bound to become a star.
It was logical for her to put up an appearance and not make herself seem too cheap as a celebrity!
When his girlfriend said before that she would meet up with a friend and asked him to tag along, he was of course quite unwilling.
It was boring to him.
However, the woman's next words about her best friend changed his mind.
'Gao Nan, have you heard of Yun Shishi? She's my best friend! Now that you're my boyfriend, I want to introduce you formally to her.'
He then asked if her best friend was that recently rising star, and when she answered in the affirmative, only then did he agree to tag along. He wanted to see how Yun Shishi looked in real life – if she was as otherworldly as the rumors said.
When he entered the cafe with his girlfriend and saw her sleeping on the sofa, the moment he saw her face, he was completely blown away!
Never did he think that she would look better in real life than her behind-the-scenes photos on Weibo!
For a moment, he inevitably harbored thoughts about her.
He gave a smile, yet it differed from his courteous smile in front of his girlfriend.
She tensed up upon seeing his eerie smile and then forced a smile. "I'll return to the seat first! Xiao Xue… is still waiting for me!"
She turned to leave, only to have her arm grabbed by him.
She got pulled to where he was.
Startled, she raised her head and saw his wicked smile.
At 1.8-meter tall, standing right in front of him, she only reached just below his shoulders.
She frowned at the contact, not liking it one bit.
"You must be worth a fortune given your beauty!" He suddenly said something inane to her.
Right now, she was unable to grasp his underlying meaning.
He continued. "I heard that women who make it far in showbiz all have investors behind them. You just made your debut, yet your name is everywhere. You must've someone supporting you, too!"
She got what he meant at this point. Her face turned sullen and she grew livid.
He laughed. "You don't have to show this face. Even if your friend doesn't know, will I not know it, too? My mom is Chengguang Entertainment's creative director, so I know all about the show business!"
