After a while, Tang Ruochu came in from outside."Manager, are you looking for me?""Do you know why I asked you to come in?"Li Na's gaze was sharp, and she exuded the aura of a powerful superior.Tang Ruochu had always respected this manager, as Li Na was not only capable, but she also had great leadership.Who would not like such a high-achiever? Not to mention that she had helped her several times."No, I don't. Manager, please tell me directly."Tang Ruochu shook her head. Her attitude was neither servile nor overbearing."Xiao Tang, although I admire your performance at work, we must keep things clear. I don't care about your personal life, but I hope that you will not let it affect your work. See the reporters downstairs? They have already affected our employees' coming and going. This is happening because of you, so you should be the one to take care of it. Before the end of the day, I do not want to see any reporter from other media outlets downstairs. Understand?"Li
Not long after the reporters left, Tang Ruochu’s interview was released on the Internet immediately, causing another wave of uproar.The reporters delved into her words deeply and analyzed them to the smallest detail. Eventually, they came up with one conclusion: Gu Ruoruo snatched someone else’s lover, and childhood friend Ji Yinfeng could not stay loyal till the end. As a younger sister, Tang Ruochu did not seek revenge and even spoke out for them, pleading to the netizens to not harm her.Soon, countless netizens were moved. They felt that Tang Ruochu was too kind. She was already hurt to this extent, yet she was still protecting them.But some said that Tang Ruochu was too scheming. It was obvious that she was a wolf in sheep's clothing. She seemed like she was protecting them, but in reality, she was telling the public that she was the victim. It was too fake.No matter what the comments were about, Ji Yinfeng’s attempt to counterattack had already been ruined.A new wave of
In the evening, after getting off work, Lu Shujin came to pick up Tang Ruochu as promised.The restaurant that he had made the reservation at was called “Shengshi No.1”. It was located on the 58th floor of The Plaza on Main Street in Beining City. It boasted a spectacular birds’ eye view of the city with its crazy-high altitude.Inside the restaurant, another big charming point was the park-dining environment surrounded by crystals.Upon arriving, the couple chose a window seat and looked down at the bustling gold city. It was breathtakingly beautiful.“This is a nice place! Compared to Sea Galaxy, it is not to be outdone.”Tang Ruochu complimented it truthfully with a sparkling gaze.“Their menu is also not bad. Do you want to take a look?” Lu Shijin asked with a light smile as he passed her a menu.“Sure.”Tang Ruochu received it heartily and started reading it.There were many dishes on the menu, and they all looked very delicate. They even had very romantic names.Tang Ru
The couple enjoyed their dinner thoroughly. Tang Ruochu drank some wine and was a little tipsy. She felt light-headed when they left.Upon returning home, while Lu Shijin took off his coat, he ordered her, “Go shower first.”“Okay.”Tang Ruochu’s cheeks were burning as she walked toward the bathroom unstably.About 40 minutes later, she finished and came out. She said to Lu Shijin, who was sitting on the sofa, “I’m done. Your turn.”Lu Shijin looked up and glanced at her. Seeing her long hair scattered all over her shoulders while dripping wet, he frowned. “Come sit here.”“Hmm.”Tang Ruochu hesitated for a moment then sat down beside him.Lu Shijin did not say anything. He got up, went to find a hairdryer, and started to blow-dry her hair.Initially, Tang Ruochu was a little flustered. “I can do it myself.”“Stay still.” He said in a deep voice.He was focused, and his long fingers combed through her hair.Feeling a little dumbfounded, Tang Ruochu sat still. She felt like
Tang Ruochu was shocked. She struggled instinctively. However, his kiss contained an extremely dominant power. Before long, it had taken over her sanity.Her mind was clustered with many thoughts, so she was led by the nose. She even responded to his kiss unknowingly.“I’m going to take a shower. You can sleep first.”His voice was low and husky, with a tint of suppression and holding back.“Hmm.”Tang Ruochu’s cheeks were bright red. She was so shy that she could not even bring herself to look at him.Lu Shijin’s lips curled. He caressed her long hair and did not say another word as he quickly turned and left.After he left, Tang Ruochu’s body turned into jelly. She fell onto the sofa as if all of her strength had been sucked away completely.She pressed her hand against her chest. Her heart was racing. The places that he touched were tingling as if they were burning. The feeling did not go away for a long time.On the second day, comments about the drama of Tang Ruochu, Gu R
"That's not necessarily true. Do you still not know Gu Ruoruo's character? Given that b*tch's toxicity, who knows whether or not she is setting you up? For someone like her, you should be on guard against her as much as you can. This time around, she had such a great fall. She'll definitely not let it go."Speaking of Gu Ruoruo, although Song Anyi was scornful and skeptical of her, she was always cautious of her.As Tang Ruochu's friend for many years, she had already seen how Gu Ruoruo treated Tang Ruochu with her endless tricks, which was why she was so worried."You're right. This incident ruined Gu Ruoruo's image and her path in the entertainment industry. I'm afraid she hates me to the core now and will definitely think of ways to deal with me."Tang Ruochu strongly agreed with Song Anyi's point of view.She had lived with Gu Ruoruo under the same roof for more than 10 years. She would know more about Gu Ruoruo than Song Anyi, not less."I'm relieved that you think this way.
"Calm down first."Looking at how Song Anyi kept on nagging her, Tang Ruochu burst out laughing. "He is just a few years older than me, quite good-looking, and he lives at Royal Dragon View."Song Anyi froze for a moment. She was a little surprised. "Oh, so he's rich?"Tang Ruochu thought about it seriously. "It seems to be the case.""So what if he's rich? Can he buy you a lifetime of happiness with money?"Song Anyi glared at her angrily, "Tang Ruochu, you're too careless! How can you... how can...""Anyi, I know that you care about me. When I got married, maybe I was being impulsive, but I don't regret it. Besides, that person is not as bad as you think... Well, maybe you'll be more agitated than you are now when you meet him."Tang Ruochu was already quite subtle with her words.Based on her understanding of Song Anyi, if she were to find out that she was married to Lu Shijin, she would probably faint on the spot."Hmph, even if you praise him, I won't like him."Song Any
"Ruoruo, I can provide for you if you don't work. In the future, you'll be the rich lady of the Ji family, isn't that what you always wanted?"Ji Yinfeng hugged her and gently offered another perspective while comforting her.Gu Ruoruo pushed him away and said resentfully, "No, I changed my mind! I want to focus on thriving in the entertainment industry. They want me to go, and that'll be the last thing that'll happen. I want to be an A-list actress and celebrity. One day, I will trample that b*tch Tang Ruochu under my feet! I will ridicule her so harshly and defeat her!""Ruoruo, you're pregnant now, you can't be so reckless."Ji Yinfeng's face fell immediately and his voice became quite cold.Gu Ruoruo also seemed to realize that she had overreacted and quickly softened her tone. She said to Ji Yinfeng between sobs, "Yinfeng, although I married you and we now have a child, I also want to have a career of my own. I don't want to stay by your side as a good-for-nothing. I'll feel
