The man dipped his head and nibbled on her earlobe. His long fingers clutched her chin, compelling her to look at him.
He whispered in his charming voice, "Why do you have an expression that seems to say I'm about to eat you alive?"
"That's… You appear to be in a bad mood."
He closed his eyes slightly, his face laced with fatigue. "Just feeling a little tired."
He had three video conferences early this afternoon, and those were followed by some complicated matters that needed resolution.
He was unavoidably feeling a little frustrated.
She reached out to rub his temple with adequate force in an attempt to ease his aching nerves.
"Do you feel better?" asked the woman as she eyed his knitted eyebrows.
"I feel better!"
The man opened his eyes and grabbed her chin before giving her lips a peck. "Is there something you want to discuss with me?"
She nodded at first but shook her head next.
He chuckled, unsure of what she trying to convey. "Is there an issue or not?"
In the end, she did not mention her matter to him.
She initially wanted his help in clinching the 'Lethal Beauty' female lead role, but after considering it for a while, she decided against telling him about it.
Her lips tugged at the corner. "Nothing much. Why? Can't I visit you if I want? Are unhappy that I've disturbed you?"
The man rubbed her nose.
"You're free to come whenever you want!"
He captured her lips again after saying that. Taking a small bite, he licked her lips with his tongue unrestrainedly. The kiss was charming and gentle.
She pushed him away. "What time do you get off work?"
"Okay! I'll wait for you!"
She proceeded to sit on the couch and lifted a magazine at the side to while the time as she waited for him to head home together after work.
There was a knock at the door, and the man's secretary walked in suddenly. Seeing her sitting on the couch, he gave her gentle smile and a nod before walking over to his boss's side. He said warmly, "Sir, Huafeng Electric's Director Wang has invited you to a banquet tonight."
"I'm not going."
"But… This banquet is very important. You've already postponed it thrice. If you fail to make an appearance again, I'm afraid that you won't be giving him any face. That… isn't good, right?"
The man furrowed his brows.
That company's director had indeed invited him thrice already, but he had rejected them time and again.
It was due to… someone for him at home.
Thus, he had declined all dinner invitations.
Yun Shishi raised her head. "Mu Yazhe, you should go."
"Eh?" His eyebrows twitched.
"I'll accompany you; is that okay?"
The man raised a brow. "You are willing to accompany me?"
They were soon on their way to the banquet.
The woman in the passenger seat commented anxiously, "This is my first time going to a banquet; I am a little nervous!"
He was silent.
This dumb woman, it's just a banquet; what is there to be nervous about?
She turned to address him. "What do I do if I am forced to drink alcohol?"
He cocked his brow. Lazily reaching out to rub her head, he smilingly said, "I want to see who has the guts to force a drink on you."
The woman was stunned.
This so-called banquet was just a gathering at a table to exchange benefits with one another.
As the Mu Group's big boss, this was a common occurrence.
In China, there was indeed such a social circle where a group of people gathered to talk about work matters and get benefits over drinks.
However, with the status he had today, it was rare for anyone to be honored by an invitation from him. Most of the time, he was the one receiving grand dinner invitations from businessmen who had requests for him.
