Hao Yan Che brought Yuan Gun Gun to a classy hotel reception. The formal evening function was organised by Zhao’s company.
Yuan Gun Gun looked at the elegantly dressed guests and suited waiters and waitresses. Yuan Gun Gun thought everyone at the hotel reception looked dazzling. But the way everyone gawked at Yuan Gun Gun made her scared.
Hao Yan Che wrapped an arm around Yuan Gun Gun’s waist, held her close to him and let her hide her face on his chest.
The guests were surprised Hao Yan Che accepted Zhao Rong Fen’s invitation. But they were stunned Hao Yan Che not only made an appearance, he brought along his beautiful girlfriend too.
Yuan Gun Gun tilted her head back, and looked at Hao Yan Che’s eyes.
‘Che, why did you bring me here?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked. ‘You never attend formal events like this. I don’t like it here.’
Hao Yan Che didn’t care about the guests staring at him and Yuan Gun Gun. He kissed Yuan Gun Gun’s cheek.
‘Later I’ll let you eat dessert at home,’ Hao Yan Che said.
Hao Yan Che wanted to bite Yuan Gun Gun’s adorable face, but he held back because of where they were.
Hao Yan Che held Yuan Gun Gun’s waist while the guests greeted him and praised Yuan Gun Gun.
‘Che, I want to go to the bathroom,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘Um,’ Hao Yan Che said. He stroked Yuan Gun Gun’s hair. ‘Do you know the way?’
‘Yes,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘My daddy took me to here before.’
‘You can go,’ Hao Yan Che said and patted Yuan Gun Gun’s waist.
Hao Yan Ming had ebony hair. He greeted Hao Yan Che after he saw Yuan Gun Gun left Hao Yan Che’s side.
‘Why aren’t you dead yet?’ Hao Yan Che asked.
‘You’ll be heartbroken if I die,’ Hao Yan Ming said.
‘Find a place far away from me to die,’ Hao Yan Que said. ‘Don’t contaminate my eyes.’
‘CEO Hao, you’re icy as usual,’ Hao Yan Ming said. ‘If you truly don’t need me anymore, why are you here?’
‘I came to see if you died yet,’ Hao Yan Che said. ‘It looks like someone with your hateful face won’t die easily.’
‘I’m back in my district,’ Hao Yan Ming said.
Hao Yan Ming raised his wine glass and clinked Hao Yan Che’s wine glass.
Yuan Gun Gun came out of the bathroom, and she was happily surprised to see Luo Qing Qing. She ran toward Luo Qing Qing, but took a step back after she heard someone insulting Luo Qing Qing.
‘Luo Qing Qing, you slut,’ Yu Cheng Su said. ‘Will it kill you if you don’t seduce the men around you? You’re nothing but dirt.’
‘Yu Cheng Su, is an eloquent name,’ Luo Qing Qing said. ‘Too bad it’s wasted on you. No wonder Jian Qi wants to come to me. Don’t you own a mirror at home? Thanks to you, today I realised how exceptional I am after standing next to you.’
Yu Cheng Su didn’t have a combat to win against Luo Qing Qing. Yu Cheng Su raised her arm to slap Luo Qing Qing’s face, but a woman in a violet dress suddenly stood in front of Luo Qing Qing.
‘Stay away from Qing Qing,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
Luo Qing Qing recognised her adorable little savior was Yuan Gun Gun.
‘Get lost bitch,’ Yu Cheng Su said.
Yu Cheng Su vented her anger on Yuan Gun Gun. She pulled Yuan Gun Gun’s hair.
‘Ah… it hurts,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘Let go of my hair.’
Luo Qing Qing was about to make Yu Cheng Su regret hurting Yuan Gun Gun. But a shadow appeared, pulled Yuan Gun Gun to their chest and kicked Yu Cheng Su onto the floor.
‘Che…’ Yuan Gun Gun called.
Yuan Gun Gun hugged Hao Yan Che and cried on his shoulder. He stroked her hair and glared at Yu Cheng Su.
Luo Qing Qing looked at Yu Cheng Su who was lying on the floor and spitting blood. Luo Qing Qing thought Yuan Gun Gun’s man was a merciless man.
‘Che, she insulted Qing Qing and attacked me,’ Yuan Gun Gun said.
‘It’s OK,’ Hao Yan Che said. He wiped Yuan Gun Gun’s tears. ‘You’re safe.’
Whispers of Hao Yan Che defending his beautiful girlfriend spread like fire among the guests. That night Hao Yan Che unintentionally stole Zhao Rong Fen’s thunder at the hotel reception.
Yuan Gun Gun looked up at Luo Qing Qing.
‘Qing Qing, are you OK?’ Yuan Gun Gun asked.
‘I’m OK,’ Luo Qing Qing said. ‘Thanks to Gun Gun.’
The bystanders thought Luo Qing Qing’s words were laughable. One glance at Yuan Gun Gun and Luo Qing Qing, and anyone could see who needed protecting.
‘Qing Qing, you saved me at school,’ Yuan Gun Gun said. ‘But I didn’t get a chance to repay you.’
‘Tonight you saved me,’ Luo Qing Qing said and rubbed Yuan Gun Gun’s head.
Hao Yan Che didn’t care about anyone else. He only wanted to take Yuan Gun Gun home.
‘Let’s go home,’ Hao Yan Che said.
