Ding! The elevator opened and Xia Ning walked out. She was looking for her keys in the bag as she walked. After a few steps, she saw someone in front of her through the corner of her eyes. She looked up instinctively and stopped the second she clearly saw the face in front. She frowned. “What are you doing here?”
The man at the door was wearing haute couture. His body was full of elegance. His deep eyes looked at her, cold as usual. “Enoch’s water bottle was left here. He only uses that one.”
In other words, if it were not for his son’s stuff, he would not have come.
Xia Ning looked at him and frowned. She remembered putting all of Enoch’s stuff in the suitcase. She walked up to the door and took out her keys to open it.
Maybe it was because of the pressure from behind, the door was extremely difficult to open today. Xia Ning was a bit anxious. All of a sudden, a big hand appeared and covered her hand to tilt the keys.
A familiar smell drifted from above to Xia Ning’s nose. Her heart skipped a beat.
Click! The door opened. Xia Ning returned to herself and the big hand that covered her hand already moved away. The person next to her walked past her and went into the room. She frowned and removed the key, closed the door and followed inside.
“Wait here for a moment. I will look for it.” Xia Ning threw her bag on the sofa and looked around. Nothing. She went to look in the dressing room and it was still not there. Finally, she found it in the floor cabinets in the kitchen. Staring at the cartoon water bottle, she was confused. Why didn’t she remember putting the bottle here?
But now she just wanted the man to get out. She came back to the living room and did not see Qiao Yu. She looked around and found him at the bookshelf in the corner. He was reading a book.
A man who liked to read always gave others an elegant impression. It was a nice scene to look at when such a handsome, successful man was reading a book.
Xia Ning’s hand on the bottle tightened. She made a sound abruptly, “Found it.”
Qiao Yu closed the book and turned around to look at Xia Ning. His eyes stayed at the water bottle for a second. He put the book back on the bookshelf and walked to her to get the bottle. He said calmly, “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome,” Xia Ning stepped back and replied calmly.
Qiao Yu stared at her cold face and suddenly said, “The audition today…”
“I didn’t know President Qiao is the investor of this movie. Thanks, President Qiao, for letting me audition today.” Xia Ning interrupted him directly and continued in a cold voice, “But rest assured President Qiao, I’m not planning on taking a role in the movie. I do have a full schedule.”
“Hey…” Qiao Yu chuckled in a low voice and looked at Xia Ning. “Is that true?”
“Of course!” Xia Ning replied coldly.
“You are making me think I am important in your heart,” Qiao Yu stared at her and said abruptly.
Important enough to make her give away a hard-earned role just to avoid him.
Xia Ning obviously got what he was talking about. She sneered immediately. “Are you still asleep and dreaming in broad daylight? It’s my call to take the role or not in the movie. Qiao Yu, we walk our own paths. If you hate me for what happened before and want to give me a hard time, I won’t take it for nothing.”
“Hate you for what happened before?” Qiao Yu frowned, thought for a while and said, “Are you referring to me having sex with you and then having Enoch afterward? However, it was you who was at a disadvantage from that.”
