Chapter 163: The real lady of the Luo Family
The Baby was still the same as in every appearance she has made previously. Wherever she goes, a dazzling light on top of her head seems to follow in her footsteps. Even if her delicate face was bare from makeups, her beauty still was one to behold.
Many of Rongxi’s employees seemed to know her and kept a respectful visage. The crowd around her honored her like a princess.
Fang Chixia thought, this is the difference between the real lady of the Luo Family and herself!
Compared with her, her presence was too small that she could resemble an inconspicuous dust on the ground.
There were many people at the dinner, but there were not many people who knew Fang Chixia.
Except for Luo Yibei whom she sees in and out of the bed everyday, the Baby, Shi Jinyang, Xiao Zuo, and a few colleagues she works with, the rest, she wasn’t acquainted with them.
As for the members of the Luo Family, she knows no one.
When Xiao Zuo saw her, he felt jubilant. The child’s eyes were sharp that he could see her entering even so far away. He ran towards her and dragged her to his seat.”Stupid woman, you sit with me!”
“Call me sister!” Fang Chixia couldn’t count how many times she has corrected him, and felt speechless.
Xiao Zuo paid no mind to her reminder and still towed her towards his seat.
The dinner was set on the lawn and the people sitting on the seats where Xiao Zuo was located were all from the Luo Family. They are the core figures of Luo Family, led by the couple Luo Xichen and Sha Zhixing.
Although Fang Chixia knows no one, however, with just Xiao Zuo sitting with them, she could roughly guess the identities of the people on the table. She just couldn’t make a match.
“Xiao Zuo, let go first!” Fang Chixia was totally against going there. Whether from her and Luo Yibei’s hidden marriage, or her position in the company, she didn’t have any reason to join them.
What made her even more reluctant was that before they could approach, she found in surprise that Baby was also sitting together with the family.
Moreover, she was sitting right next to Luo Yibei!
Fang Chixia looked at the two and couldn’t help herself from stiffening.
Are they a family now?
“Hurry up, come on, let’s sit together!” Xiao Zuo remained positive and drew her close to his sit. He even shoved his relative, Luo Rong, out of the way and patted the position next to him, indicating Fang Chixia to sit down.
Fang Chixia glanced at Luo Yibei then let her eyes roam around the other people, and the expression on her face showed a little discomfort.
“Xiao Zuo, this is…..” The Baby looked up at her and smiled with her pretty eyes.
Her smile was very bright giving people the feeling of closeness. Even if Fang Chixia and her relationship was quiet awkward, she felt not a bit of dislike for her.
“Baby Jiejie, this is my friend!” Xiao Zuo, just like a little adult, introduced Fang Chixia.
“Oh, is this the way you ask your friends, dragging them away?” The Baby teased, chuckling. Her voice was really pleasant to the ears.
Xiao Zuo just grinned at her strangely. He tried to pull Fang Chixia down, but she drew back a few steps, and distanced herself from him.
Her eyes turned to the other people present and politely said with her head down, “Xiao Zuo was just playing around. I already have a seat. Please excuse me. I should go now.”
She turned around and started to walk when two voices came from behind at the same time, “Since you’re already here, let’s just sit together!”
One was from Luo Enqi and the other was Shi Jinyang’s.
Luo Yibei stared at Fang Chixia’s face quietly then swept a gaze at Shi Jinyang.
Thinking of the watch Fang Chixia bought, his face sank.
Chapter 164: Leave this girl to me
Shi Jinyang probably hasn’t noticed his eyes on him. He stood up and guided Fang Chixia to his own seat. “Sit here, it’s alright!”
Fang Chixia really didn’t want to mix with this group of people. However, since Luo Enqi has spoken, it would be impolite to refuse.
After some second thoughts, she sat down.
From beginning to end, Luo Yibei followed her movements. His face grew even heavier.
On the large table, nobody was paying attention to him and all eyes were on Fang Chixia.
Fang Chixia wasn’t familiar with any of them. After sitting down, she never said a word and just hung her head down and focused on her meal.
Shi Jinyang was very considerate mainly because he didn’t want her to feel embarrassed. He’d been helping her pick up dishes, “Try this, this is unique to this hotel, not bad.”
“Thank you.” A grateful smile escaped the corner of her lips when she looked at him.
Luo Yibei witnessed the interaction between the two blankly and his eyes remained cool and clear.
Fang Chixia caught sight of his stare out of the corner of her eyes. The hand holding a fork stiffened, she looked up at him but soon averted her eyes.
If a little familiar with the Luo Family, one will know that the people in the family aren’t actually that serious.
After the meal started, a peal of laughter between conversations would resound from time to time. Xiao Zuo was also chirping and the atmosphere was not as stiff as Fang Chixia has imagined.
Halfway through the meal, Luo Enqi suddenly inserted.
Looking at Shi Jinyang, he smiled, “Jinyang, this girl is said to be working under your command?”
“Yes, Grandpa.” Shi Jinyang did not perceive any intent in his question and replied offhandedly.
Who knew that Luo Enqi would follow his answer immediately, “What about turning over to Grandpa?”
Shi Jinyang was unaware that Fang Chixia had met Luo Enqi ealier. The sudden proposition in front of many people in the family made him startled that he looked at Fang Chixia on the side.
The rest on the table were also taken aback and all eyes rested on her once more.
Fang Chixia has eaten well but becoming the focal point so suddenly, she felt an indigestion coming.
Putting down the knife and fork, she calmed herself down, stood up and politely interjected, “It would be an honor to be able to work with Mr. But this depends on Shi Shaoye.”
There was nobody at the table who introduced everybody to her from the start.
Luo Enqi’s identity, she only knows that he is part of the Luo Family.
Though she didn’t want to get too close to any of Luo’s family, she didn’t refuse directly.
Her answer was well-balanced, giving Luo Enqi face and subtly throwing the topic back to Shi Jinyang. At least, it was better for him to do the rejecting instead of it coming straight from her.
How could an astute man like Shi Jinyang not read her thoughts?
Putting down the cutlery, Shi Jinyang slowly lifted his face up and looked at Luo Enqi. He said half-jokingly, “Grandpa, are you trying to poach people from me now? Grandpa, you have many talents in your hands. Chixia is a newcomer who just entered Rongxi. Leave this girl to me!”
The Shi Family and Luo Family are familar with each other. He has spoken politely but with a clear attitude.
“This little boy!” Luo Enqi was angry with him but said no more.
Fang Chixia released a sigh of relief softly. She glanced at Shi Jinyang and extended a hand to pat him under the table.
Her movements were very subtle and the table served as a cover. Who knew that Luo Yibei’s gaze would brush over her in the same moment.
Then, Fang Chixia’s hand froze……
Chapter 165: Show of affection
His eyes were cold and heavy that made Fang Chixia’s shrank back in embarrassment.
She bowed her head down and continued with her own meal.
The Baby is greatly favored wherever she goes. As her name implies, she is a treasure that everyone holds in the palm of their hands.
However, Fang Chixia couldn’t understand, everyone treats the Baby very well.
She became aware of another anomaly when the Baby was talking to everyone at the table.
Not only did Luo Yibei call her Baby, but everyone at the table also called her Baby.
Even Xiao Zuo called her “Baby sister.”
Fang Chixia slowly found the difference, why did this sound like a person’s name?
Her face slowly raised and her eyes sought the Baby sitting beside Luo Yibei.
Luo Yibei obviously noticed her gaze and even looked at her questioningly but still did not explain. He casually continued with his meal holding his cutlery.
The way they interact appeared very intimate. While dining, from time to time, Baby would lean and approach his ear and whisper several things to him.
Luo Yibei has always been gentle with her and even laughed with her. From time to time, he would help her with the dishes. The two of them were very natural.
Fang Chixia stared at the two so much but still couldn’t describe what she was feeling.
She was married to him, but was it necessary to do so in front of her? She finds it incomprehensible, is he trying to kill her with his public display of affection?
Shi Jinyang quietly took in her reaction and in fact has guessed what she was probably thinking but he made no move to give her an accounting. He carried on in placing food on Fang Chixia’s plate however, a movement on the table turned the atmosphere immediately strange.
With the knife in one hand and the fork in the other, he gracefully sliced the beef in her plate and gave it to her with a faint smile. “Concentrate on the meal, there is so much food, they can not be wasted.”
An action that caught the attention of everyone on the table who focused at them once again.
Luo Yibei’s face sank. He gave her a look, got up and went straight out to the lawn.
He was motioning her to leave, but Fang Chixia, as she did not see it with her head down continued eating.
Baby was just right next to Luo Yibei; naturally, she didn’t miss the look he had just made.
With such a gesture, there was nothing else in it but she was senstive enough to smell something.
At the end of the dinner, she stood up and deliberately introduced herself to Fang Chixia. “Hello, my name is Sha Xingbao.”
She said it with a smile and as gracefully as she could be.
It was Fang Chixia, who did not understand why she suddenly told her her name.
Baby added no more and followed the Luo Family who walked out.
Fang Chixia went out this way chewing on her name while walking.
She thought she had heard of it somewhere!
Out of the hotel, her head was like being struck by something so she reacted right away.
Sha Xingbao, beloved by the whole of Rongxi, Luo Xizhen and Sha Zhixing’s darling, the only daughter of the Luo Family, Luo Yibei’s sister from his mother’s surname!
This name, Fang Chixia has come across in magazines.
“You finally came out?” Luo Yibei has hinted her to follow him outside. He stood waiting there for already more than half an hour. Cold eyes pierced her, blazing with danger.
