Chapter 1068: Sister Nian: Next Time
Qiao Nian had just entered and closed the door behind her. She walked back to the seat she had just dragged over and placed her fair hand on the mineral water bottle. She didn’t answer his question immediately. Instead, she turned her head slightly and looked at the person beside her.
Ye Wangchuan noticed the girl’s gaze and shrugged calmly. It was a very lazy reaction.
Qiao Nian knew that he hadn’t said anything.
Pursing her lips, she looked at Qin Si again and frowned. She pressed her forehead and answered vaguely, “Just… for something.”
“What is it?” This wasn’t what Qin Si was concerned about. Before Qiao Nian could reply, he said excitedly, “Sister Qiao, are you hiding something from me?”
Qiao Nian was speechless.
She was wondering if she should explain.
Qin Si’s next words dispelled her thoughts.
“Why didn’t you tell me you knew Sun? Do you have his WeChat? How did you meet? Ask him out sometime.”
Qiao Nian looked at his excited and happy expression. Her eyebrows twitched, and she swallowed the words she wanted to tell him....
“I guess I do know Sun.”
She didn’t wait for Qin Si to speak again. Her words were concise and comprehensive. She put her hands in her pockets arrogantly and said lazily, “You just never asked me.”
Initially, Qin Si wanted to say that she wasn’t nice enough to let him know. But after thinking about it, he felt that what Qiao Nian said made sense. He had indeed never asked her about it before. But now that he knew, he couldn’t hide his joy. He went over and tried to cozy up to her. “Big Boss, when are you going to introduce me to Sun?”
Qiao Nian was holding the mineral water bottle but hadn’t unscrewed the cap yet. She looked at him and thought for a moment before answering, “Next time.
“I’m going back to Beijing tomorrow. Perhaps when I have time in the future.”
“You’re going back tomorrow?” Qin Si was quite disappointed. He had wanted to bring Qiao Nian to the auction tomorrow to broaden her horizons, but she was leaving. This news diluted his interest in Sun. “It wasn’t easy for you to come. Why don’t you stay for another day?”
The others looked over.
Qiao Nian hummed lightly and explained, “No. I’ve already settled my matters. There’s no need for me to stay. I should be able to leave tomorrow.”
Ye Wangchuan didn’t say anything. He just looked up and asked her, “What time is your flight? I’ll drive you to the airport.”
He was going to attend the auction tomorrow night. During the day, he had to meet the forces in the illegal district, mainly Tian Chen’s people, to discuss a collaboration.
However, if Qiao Nian wanted to leave, he could squeeze out some time and at least send her to the airport.
Qiao Nian shook her head nonchalantly. “I’m not sure yet. I’ll wait for the results of the IT Association. If nothing goes wrong, I can leave tomorrow afternoon. I’ll go back with Principal Liang and the others. I won’t be alone. You don’t have to send me off.”
Ye Wangchuan thought about how Liang Conglin, Jiang Li, and the others would be around when the time came and didn’t insist. His thin lips pursed slightly as he pondered for a moment. “Send me a message when you reach Beijing.”
Qiao Nian agreed readily.
Not long after, she recalled what Qin Si had told her about the raw materials they wanted to buy at the auction.
The girl lowered her raven-black eyelashes and leaned against the side of the table. She looked down, picked up her cell phone, and slowly sent a message.
The next day.
In Liang Lu’s research laboratory.
She called her team members over at 8:30 PM. However, she only arrived at 10 PM.
The cotton shirt was buttoned to the top of her collar. She looked very serious and even rigid.
She was wearing a white coat over her shirt, which did not match her temperament. She looked out of place.
