Zhuang Nainai helplessly sighed. She was so anxious that she felt the room getting slightly hotter.
Thus, she walked toward the balcony and answered the call.
Gu Deshou was slightly panicking. “Qingyan, have you gotten the design drafts?”
Zhuang Nainai subconsciously knitted her brows. “Not yet.”
“Qingyan, summer is already ending and other stores are already starting to launch their autumn and winter apparels. If you can’t obtain it in time, what will happen to the Gu Corporation?”
What will happen?
How was she supposed to know what will happen?
During those times when they didn’t have the Imperial Group’s design drafts, did they not sell any apparels?
Zhuang Nainai felt constricted in her heart and said bluntly, “You should know that the Imperial Group’s design drafts are designed by TZ. She returned only two days ago, how am I supposed to obtain those design drafts?”
From her words, Gu Deshou could tell that she was annoyed. He then said firmly, “I’m actually not anxious. The main point is, don’t you want to see your Mother Zhuang? I’m afraid that you’re the one feeling anxious!”
Instinctively, anger surged up from the bottom of Zhuang Nainai’s heart all of a sudden. She tried to suppress that anger with all her might. “Alright, I got it. Let’s put this matter aside first until the design drafts are completed.”
As soon as she had finished talking, she cut off the phone call.
The night became quiet.
After standing for a while at the balcony, Zhuang Nainai was about to return to her room. Suddenly, she heard a sound coming from the adjacent balcony!
She immediately froze, turned around, and saw Ding Mengya at a nearby balcony. At this moment, Ding Mengya was slowly getting up from the gondola chair and staring at her with a sharp gaze.
Ding Mengya’s room was near their master’s bedroom. The balconies of both rooms were only half a wall apart.
Just now, Ding Mengya was sitting on the gondola chair on the balcony without moving an inch. As such, Zhuang Nainai didn’t see her.
Looking at Ding Mengya’s expression right now, on top of the fact that they weren’t very far apart… it seemed to her as if Ding Mengya had overheard her whole conversation with Gu Deshou.
Zhuang Nainai’s body stiffened. For a moment, neither spoke.
Bejing’s cool night breeze blew toward her, making her mind feel extremely clear and sober.
Zhuang Nainai knew that Ding Mengya must have misunderstood something. Yet, at the thought of what had happened a few years back, she was somehow unwilling to explain herself.
Since she didn’t do anything against her conscience, she needn’t be afraid of the knock in the night.
Thus, what was she, Zhuang Nainai, afraid of?
Zhuang Nainai raised her chin. Without uttering a single word, she turned around and was about to enter the bedroom.
At this moment, Ding Mengya cautioned coldly from behind, “Zhuang Nainai, Zhengting hates it the most when people betray him. I hope that… you won’t do something stupid.”
Do something stupid?
Zhuang Nainai stopped in her tracks, bit her lips, and could only feel a strong sense of sarcasm directly aimed at her.
She turned around and was almost gnashing her teeth as she said, “Rest assured, I obviously know that I should be holding onto Si Zhengting’s thigh very tightly right now. After all, such a lowly person like me doesn’t deserve him at all. I’m simply no match for you, aren’t I?”
That strong feeling of discontentment and resentfulness in Zhuang Nainai’s words caused Ding Mengya to knit her brows. Only then did she sense that, perhaps, her tone was too strong. Thus, she said sincerely, “Don’t blame me for suspecting you and warning you. After all… five years ago, you took the money and left Zhengting. Right now, I still can’t trust you unconditionally.”
Took the money and left Si Zhengting?
Ding Mengya must be joking, right?
Zhuang Nainai smirked coldly and arrogantly. Just as she wanted to sneer back at her, she suddenly sensed something. She was in a daze and her back felt chilly. She turned around abruptly and saw Si Zhengting standing at the door, looking at her with a cold yet profound gaze!!!
