Ye Qing Xin looks around the stage and audience. She is holding the microphone and explains briefly about her inspiration for her design.
Everyone gives her applause when she is done.
It’s not because her speech is brilliant but her voice and language are pleasant to hear.
Ye Qing Xin comes back to the backstage, Wen Ze Hui is gone. Zhang Han Han comes closer: “I just got back from the restroom. Just in time I heard the person-in-charge called someone. He said that number 1 work already starts to receive order. Xin Xin, this time you will be the winner.”
Ye Qing Xin is happy. But she doesn’t show it, she just says calmly: “It’s just started. It’s indefinite. Don’t say it again, it’ll not good if anyone hears it.|
Zhang Han Han nods: “I get it. I just tell you.”
The time the show ends throughly, it’s already 11:00 a.m. Ye Qing Xin can attend to watch the remaining fashion shows, but she can also skip it. She just tidies up her clothes. Then she gets ready to go back.
The time she is about to leave, Ye Qing Xin gets a call from one of the committee.
“Number 1 Ye Qing Xin.”
Ye Qing Xin: “Yes.”
“My name is Gu. I am responsible to taking order. You got several orders and they request several alteration. I will send it to your inbox. Please help to alter it. Tomorrow send it back to me.”
Ye Qing Xin agrees and says: “I will do it. Thank you.”
The call ends.
Today the time she got up, the sky was gloomy. It still a bit gloomy now.
The time she comes out from the Wen Huan culture center, she feels that her career is starting to go in a good direction.
She feels no matter what is the result of the competition, she feels that she will succeed in the future.
“Xin Xin, your Shu Shu.” Zhang Han pulls Ye Qing Xin’s jacket sleeve and points at a direction.
Ye Qing Xin looks over and looks a tall figure, that stands not far from where she stands.
Jing Bo Yuan looks at her. He is smoking. He is wearing a black coat and deep blue scarf.
Their eyes meet and make Ye Qing Xin’s heart races.
Jing Bo Yuan throws away his cigarette and comes toward her.
He stops beside her and takes away the suitcase from her hand.
She is shocked: “Why are you here?”
Last night he didn’t tell her that he will come.
Jing Bo Yuan’s one hand holds the case and his other hand holds Ye Qing Xin’s little hand.
“I have a project to wrap up.”
He means that he is on business trip and just in time he takes time to visit her.
Ye Qing Xin hugs his arm and smiles. :”Really, why I feel that I don’t believe you?”
Zhang Han Han watches their interaction. Why does she feel that it’s not like a relation between Shu Shu and Zhi Nu (niece)? It’s a bit more intimate.
She remembers that Ye Qing Xin mentioned that her Shu Shu has a special sexual orientation…. perhaps because of it, so their interaction is a bit weird.
Zhang Han Han looks at them and couldn’t help but to feel that it’s too pity. A handsome and tall man, mature one doesn’t like a woman…….
Jing Bo Yuan suddenly turns his head to look at her. Zhang Han Han is surprised and couldn’t help but to feel a bit cool.
Zhang Han Han retreats and stammers: “Ye Ye, Ye Shu Shu (Uncle Ye), …Hi. …”
Ye Qing Xin’s Shu Shu, of course he should have the same family name as her.
Jing Bo Yuan frowns and looks at Ye Qing Xin. His lips raises and shows his interest.
“Ye Shu Shu?”
“……” Ye Qing Xin couldn’t help but fill cold. She laughs lightly and strokes her belly to shift the attention: “We were so busy before. I’m really hungry. Let’s eat now okay?”
She turns her head and says to Zhang Han Han: “Let’s eat together.”
Zhang Han Han is a bit afraid of Jing Bo Yuan. She looks for an excuse to refuse: “No need, no need. You guys should enjoy your lunch. I will not disturb you… just in time I want to go back to the hotel and have a video call with my Ma….”
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t force her.
Jing Bo Yuan holds Ye Qing Xin’s hand and walks toward the parking area. They stop in front of a black Lexus car. She never sees him using this car.
“You drive the car here?” Ye Qing Xin asks.
“No.” Jing Bo Yuan takes out his car key and opens the trunk to put her case in. He says: “My flight was this morning 08:00 a.m.
Ye Qing Xin counts inside her heart and realizes that Jing Bo Yuan should rush directly here after he lands.
She gets in the front passenger seat and couldn’t help but to smile: “Didn’t you say that you are in a business trip? How can the time you landed you just rushed to meet me. You aren’t like a responsible boss.”
Jing Bo Yuan laughs and says nothing. He drives the car.
“Is it because of me? Is hard to bear to live a day without me?” So you are impatient to chase after me.
Jing Bo Yuan could guess her remaining words, he just drives without mind her joke.
“I will go back at most two days after today. It’s only two or three days left. You cannot live without me, what will happen in the future?”
Jing Bo Yuan: “…..”
“At first I wanted to give you a month to consider whether you will regret to be with me. Looking at how you cannot live without me, I think you don’t need to consider.”
Jing Bo Yuan: “…….”
The traffic light turns red and the car stops.
Ye Qing Xin looks at his face and asks him: “Since when you start to keep thinking of me? Could it be love at a first sight?”
“Impossible, it couldn’t be right, Bo Yuan, you…….”
A soft lip blocks her words.
Without her awareness, her lips just open and let his tongue in and tangle with hers. She hugs his neck and enjoys his kiss.
Suddenly one of their phone vibrates.
Ye Qing Xin just regains herself, Jing Bo Yuan takes out his phone and answers.
The red turns to green so Jing Bo Yuan starts to drive a car in slower pace.
After the call ends, Jing Bo Yuan asks her: “What do you want to eat for lunch.”
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t think about it and just answers directly: “Being with you, I can eat anything.”
Jing Bo Yuan smiles.
The car stops at a restaurant. There’s someone that immediately opens the door for them. The bell boy helps to park the car too.
The waiter guides them to a private room.
When ordering, Jing Bo Yuan orders Ye Qing Xin’s favorite food. Ye Qing Xin also orders several light food for him.
When they are waiting, Ye Qing Xin stands up and goes to the restroom. The time she comes out from the restroom, she bumps into He Su E.
He Su E notices her and just gets inside the cubicle without saying anything.
“…..” Ye Qing Xin could feel her anger.
Since the last time He Su E looked for her to talk, she never meets her again.
After she washes her hand, she doesn’t leave immediately, she waits for her.
After a while, He Su E comes out and washes her hands.
“Bo Mu.” Ye Qing Xin smiles and calls after her. “I and Bo Yuan are having lunch together. If you are okay, do you want to eat together?”
Toward an outsider, Ye Qing Xin will not try hard to be friendly but He Su E is not an outsider, she is Jing Bo Yuan’s biological mother. No matter how she treats her, Ye Qing Xin feels that she needs to respect her.
He Su E looks at her coldly and says: “No need.” And she just leaves.
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t say anything else.
The time she returns back to the private room. The dishes are served. She tells Jing Bo Yuan about her accidental meeting with he Su E. But she doesn’t really tell the truth about how He Su E rejected her invitation coldly, but she says: “Bo Mu knew that I joined competition, she blamed me to not tell her about it earlier. She told me if she knew about it earlier, she would support me. Bo Mu is really too modest.”
Jing Bo Yuan looks at her and says nothing.
Ye Qing Xin picks a slice of winter bamboo shoots with her chopsticks and puts into Jing Bo Yuan’s bowl. She says: “Bo Mu at first wanted to eat together with us. But she is too busy. It’s a pity.”
Jing Bo Yuan of course knows clearly what type of person He Su E is. Jing Bo Yuan knows why Ye Qing Xin says that way.
He doesn’t say anything and just picks a slice of pork chop with his chopstick and puts it in her bowl. “Let’s eat.”
The time they finish and come out from the restaurant, coincidentally once more they meet He Su E. She gets in the car with several other rich ladies. Before the door closed, she looks at both of them. There’s no smile. She doesn’t look like a mother that meets her son.
Ye Qing Xin turns her head and looks at Jing Bo Yuan’s calm face. He seems to be used to her cold treatment.
The doorbell brings their car over.
Jing Bo Yuan sends her back to the hotel.
Fifteen minutes later—-
The car stops in front of the hotel lobby, Jing Bo Yuan says: “I have things to do this afternoon, let’s dinner together.”
Ye Qing Xin nods: “Okay.”
She opens the door and purses her lips. She closes the door again and comes closer to him. She hugs him and pecks his lips.
“I will miss you.”
She says it and without waiting for his response, she just opens the door and flees quickly.
Jing Bo Yuan watches her, he watches how hard has she slapped the door and how fast she runs.
This twenty years old woman is really cute and charming. She has what thirty years old man doesn’t have.
Ye Qing Xin just realizes that she doesn’t bring her case, it’s still inside Jing Bo Yuan’s trunk. She wants to call her but she remembers that they will have dinner tonight so she doesn’t call him.
She goes inside the room and notices that Zhang Han Han is not inside the room.
She just takes her computer and opens her email. She looks at the email and reads through the alteration request. It’s not really complicated.
She keeps on working until it’s 05:00 p.m. Zhang Han Han is still away. Ye Qing Xin calls her and just knows that she goes to the Bund to look around. She will be back a bit later.
Ye qing Xin doesn’t say anything and just hangs up. Then she gets a call from Jing Bo Yuan. He is downstair and he asks her to go down now.
Ye Qing Xin goes to the restroom first and changes her clothes. Then she goes downstair.
“Have you been waiting for a long time?” Ye Qing Xin gets in the car.
“I just arrived.”
Probably because she sits down for a long time, she feels that her waist part is a bit uncomfortable. She tries to stretch it.
Jing Bo Yuan notices it and looks at her: “What is it?”
“My waist a bit ache.” Ye Qing Xin massages her waist: “Probably it’s because I’ve been sitting for a long time.”
“Really? We’ve separated for several days and just met for few days, how can we do it too much.”
Ye Qing Xin blushes and glares at him.
She wants to say something, but his phone rings suddenly.
Ye Qing Xin just shuts up and watches him.
It’s a peak hour so there’s a bit of traffic so the car moves so slow.
Perhaps because it’s a work call, Jing Bo Yuan’s voice a bit stern and serious.
Thinking about his unserious remark before, she also doesn’t know what she is thinking, she just extends her hand to lift up his hem of shirt and undo his belt.
Jing Bo Yuan notices her movement, he could guess what she will do. He clutches her naught hand. The car stops because of the traffic.
Ye Qing Xin lays down on his thigh and smiles at him. Her smile is so sexy and romantic.
Jing Bo Yuan’s eyes turn dark. Then he says something to the person who is calling. Ye Qing Xin could notice the change in his voice.
The call ends so abruptly.
The traffic lasts around an hour and the car starts to move again.
For those people, half an hour is a bit hard to wait. But somebody else this half hour is a matter of life and death experience.
Desire to live and desire to die.
Ye Qing Xin slowly regains herself, her blushing face turns calmer. She looks at her man.
After a while, the car finally arrives at a western restaurant.
It’s not 07:00 p.m. yet. So it’s not really crowded.
The waiter takes them to an empty table. When they are waiting for their food, Ye Qing Xin goes to the restroom. When she stands up in front of the bathroom, she looks at her swollen lips, she feels that she turns to be even more absurd.
She rinses her mouth and looks at the mirror again. The time she raises her head, she is startled.
Behind her, there is Wen Ze Hui. Wen Ze Hui just stands behind her and says nothing. Looks like she is thinking about something.
Ye Qing Xin frowns and switches off the tap. She dries her hand and wants to go out.
Wen Ze Hui blocks her way.
Ye Qing Xin looks at the woman that is shorter than her. She retreats and wants to have a bit of space from her. She is unhappy.
“What is it?” She says coldly.
Wen Ze Hui laughs : “How about we do a business ?”
Ye Qing Xin looks at her: “What business should we do?”
Wen Ze Hui says: “My sao zi is ill. Her illness is really serious. My sao zi and my Ge have a little son. He is a premature one. He almost dies, it’s fortunate that he can live. He is so skinny and small. He is a miserable one. He is not a month yet and he even couldn’t meet his Ma for many times. My sao zi loves him dearly, she is afraid that in the future my Ge will marry a mean wife that mistreats him so she wants to find a kind-hearted step-mother for him.”
“I heard from my Sao Zi that you had miscarriage and cannot have your own kid. From what I see the way you treat your idiot Di Di, you are a kind-hearted woman. My Sao Zi really hopes you can be together again with my Ge. Probably she will die soon so she keeps on thinking to unite you guys. She even asked for my help. She promised that if I help my Ge to unite with you, she will divide half of Kai Kai’s trust fund to me.”
“I heard from my Ma that the money is worth around five million. Half of it will be two million five hundred thousand. How about we earn this money and divide it again?”
Ye Qing Xin just looks at her and says nothing.
Wen Ze Hui continues: “You can pretend to be together with my Ge. Wait till I get the money that we can divide it equally? What do you think? That time if you don’t want to be with my Ge, you can break up. Anyway you were together too last time.”
Ye Qing Xin just listens at her words and feels that she is a terrifying and calculating woman.
She even wants to scheme her own family member.
After a while, Ye Qing Xin laughs and says: “I’m sorry. I have a boyfriend. If he knows that I do something like this, he will be unhappy.”
“Xin Xin, you are a smart woman. Don’t forget you still have a Di Di, he needs money. You can hide this from your boyfriend.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “Did Lu Jie tell you who is my boyfriend?’
Wen Ze Hui is startled: “Is it the man that come here with you?”
Ye Qing Xin nods and says seriously: “For me, he is worth more than that money.”
“Haven’t you hear that a man is not dependable. Xin Xin, don’t be stupid.”
“That should be for you, but for me, he is worth more and dependable one. I’m sorry. He is waiting for me. Excuse me.” Ye Qing Xin doesn’t wait for her response and passes her.
Before she goes out the door, she turns her head and says to Wen Ze Hui: “Oh right, I forget to tell you. Your Ge and I will be impossible forever. Don’t waste your time. Your Wen family is like a plaster, you guys make me worried. If you do something like this again, I will tell my boyfriend. You don’t know how terrible his temper is. The time he is angry, he will act on impulse. He can do something that I even cannot think about, moreover….”
Ye Qing Xin smiles toward her: “I believe you will definitely not willing to experience his temper.”
She goes out of the restroom and notices that Jing Bo Yuan is standing outside and waiting for her.
“You……?” She doesn’t know whether he is listening to their conversation.
Jing Bo Yuan says to her: “I just came and you come out. Go back and eat first. It’ll turn cool quickly. I will go to the restroom and go back soon.”
“I’ll wait for you.” Ye Qing Xin hugs his arm.
Jing Bo Yuan pats her head: “go back to the room.”
Ye Qing Xin pouts “Okay, hurry up.”
Jing Bo Yuan watches her leaving. He takes out a cigarette out of his pocket and smokes it. He is waiting for someone.
After a while, Wen Ze Hui comes out of the restroom and looks that there is a charming man standing outside the restroom. She feels that he is familiar.
Jing Bo Yuan raises his head and looks at her.
“Wen Ze Hui?”
“It’s me, you are?”
Jing Bo Yuan just looks at her.
“I am Ye Qing Xin’s fiancee.” Jing Bo Yuan says coldly: “I heard that you wanted to do business with my fiancee?”
His tone is calm that it makes Wen Ze Hui turns panic.
She now understands why he looks so familiar. Wen Ze Hui smiles and tries to be evasive. “I think Xian Sheng misunderstands me, I just joked with her. You might not know that I and Ye Qing Xin used to be fellow-villagers. We have a good relationship. She used to be with my Ge. We were like sisters-in-law. Though she breaks up with my Ge but all along I regard her as my sister-in-law. Sometimes I joked with her, don’t take it to your heart.”
“If you mind it, then in the future I’ll not do it again…”
Jing Bo Yuan stands straight and waits for her to finish her answer. He says: “Go back and tell Wen Ze Yan, last night it was just a little warning, if there’s one more time, it’ll not be a simple consequence. He is not alone, he should think about his family. Don’t make thing hard for the family.”
He is giving warning not only to Wen Ze Yan but also Wen Ze Hui.
Wen Ze Hui is shocked: “Last night… my Ge was hit by the people, because of you?”
Jing Bo Yuan ignores her and walks away.
Wen Ze Hui watches him leave, she feels scared.
She takes her phone and calls Wen Ze Yan.
She tells what happened before and asks: “Ge, Sao Zi didn’t tell me about Ye Qing Xin’s boyfriend. He unexpectedly asked someone to hit you. Ge, do we need to report it to the police?”
“He is Jing Bo Yuan of Bo Wei.”
Wen Ze Hui surprised.
She works at Hang Zhou. She rarely comes home. She doesn’t know the fact that Ye Qing Xin has changed into a phoenix.
Wen Ze Hui feels embarrassed, no wonder Ye Qing Xin laughs at her.
No wonder Ye Qing Xin is stubborn and doesn’t want to be together again with Wen Ze Yan. If it’s her, she will also make a same choice. She will not choose her Ge.
Although her Ge is not poor but he cannot be compared to that boss.
Jing Bo Yuan is back and Ye Qing Xin has eaten a lot.
“What takes you so long?”
“You are worried about me?”
Ye Qing Xin says: “The dishes will be cold soon.”
Both of them leave the restaurant around 08.00 p.m. Jing Bo Yuan just takes her back to the hotel.
Because of her past experience, Ye Qing Xin doesn’t really fond to play around. Unlike Zhang Han Han that loves to stroll around the city with her friends. When she relaxes, she remembers about her unfinished work.
There’s no traffic when they return to the hotel. After twenty minutes, they arrive at the hotel lobby.
Ye Qing Xin unbuckles the seatbelt and asks: “Oh right, where are you staying?”
Jing Bo Yuan also gets off the car and takes out her case in his truck. A bellboy comes and helps him to park his car.
“You stay here, how can I stay somewhere else?”
Ye Qing Xin smiles and hugs his arm: “Then excuse me, which room are you staying, Xian Sheng?”
“The room in front of you.”
Ye Qing Xin: “……”
Both of them pass the reception, two receptionists greet Jing Bo Yuan. “Good evening, Chief Jing.”
Jing Bo Yuan just nods at them.
Ye Qing Xin narrows her eyes at him: “You frequently comes here? Those two beautiful women seems to know you.”
Jing Bo Yuan smiles: “This hotel belongs to Bo Wei. I always stay here every time I go to Shang Hai.”
Ye Qing Xin nods: “Oh.”
They both go upstairs. Ye Qing Xin lowers her head and takes the hotel card. She opens the door and Jing Bo Yuan helps her to put the case inside the room.
“Where is your friend?”
Ye Qing Xin takes off her coat: “Em, she went to stroll around with her friends. She will be back a bit later.”
“Why didn’t you go stroll around? You have friends here too right?”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “Yes, but I am busy. I have no time.”
She goes to sit down in front of her laptop and tries to do something. But Jing Bo Yuan just walks and holds her hand. He hugs her waist too and looks at her face. “You are free, what about go to my room and sit down?”
Ye Qing Xin’s heart beats quickly and asks him: “If I don’t have time?”
Jing Bo Yuan doesn’t care: “Then we can also do it here. If you don’t feel afraid that your friend will come over.”
Then Ye Qing Xin is carried up by him to his room.
They both take shower and kiss each other. They enjoy their intimate moment together on the bed.
When it’s done, something is wrong with Ye Qing Xin. Jing Bo Yuan notices something on her face. He hugs her, he asks: “Am I hurting you?”
Tonight he is a bit more fierce.
Ye Qing Xin frowns and strokes her belly: “My belly is a bit hurt.”
Jing Bo Yuan strokes her belly and tries to see whether she is okay.
She pushes his hand away.
“What is it? Is this making it hurt?” Jing Bo Yuan takes the blanket and covers her up.
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t think too much about the pain, she thinks it happens because of Jing Bo Yuan is too fierce.
She takes her clean clothes and wants to have a rest. Before that she set the alarm. She wants to wake up early tomorrow and do her works.
At midnight she goes to the bathroom and notices a dark red blood mark on her underwear. She suddenly realizes why her belly is in pain. She counts the day, she should have her period earlier.
She tells Jing Bo Yuan about it. Jing Bo Yuan calls the receptionist to bring feminine napkin up. Very quickly someone comes over and gives it to him.
Ye Qing Xin wakes up the next morning and notices that she doesn’t have a period. There’s no blood.
She finds it’s strange.
She returns to her own hotel room to take her laptop. She notices that Zhang Han Han didn’t go home last night. The bed is made.
Ye Qing Xin calls her and Zhang Han Han said that she stayed in her friend’s house last night.
Ye Qing Xin ends the call.
In the morning, Jing Bo Yuan is busy with his work and Ye Qing Xin just stays at the hotel to modify her design.
She notices that she gets more order and more request of alterations. She feels that it’s a bit too much for her to handle.
