Chapter 1480: She Came

After making the call, Gu Meng returned to her room.

After a while, the nurse she knocked unconscious slowly woke up.

Seeing Gu Meng sitting by the bed, the nurse was about to shout for help when Gu Meng cupped her mouth.

“If you call anyone in, I will say that you’re the one who let me out. If someone has to take responsibility for this, you will be involved as well.”

The nurse widened her eyes, as though she couldn’t believe that the threatening words had come from the weak and pale Gu Meng.

“I will let go of you if you don’t shout.”

The nurse glared at Gu Meng for several seconds before she slowly nodded in compromise, like a deflated balloon.

Gu Meng let go of the nurse’s mouth and took off the nurse’s uniform that she was wearing. “Don’t worry. I only went out to see my baby. I didn’t do other things and no one noticed me either.”

The nurse put her uniform back on as she rubbed the back of her neck. She really couldn’t understand how Gu Meng had so much strength even though she looked so slender and weak!

After the nurse left, Gu Meng laid back on the bed. The image of how thin and small the baby looked kept resurfacing in her mind. The urge to cry swelled up within her as tears welled up in her eyes once again.

It was not that she didn’t know that staying an extra day in the womb was better than staying ten days outside. However, because of her selfishness, she had thought of undergoing a premature caesarean section, and running away with the baby. In the end, the baby had started to suffer the moment he was born.

No matter how Ye Qing treated her, she was not a qualified mother.

She only wished that Ye Qing would treat the baby well.

After Cen Xi received Gu Meng’s call, she took a day’s leave from the head of the translation department and drove toward the Qiao Corporation.

All of the Qiao Corporation’s staff already knew that Cen Xi was their lady boss, so they greeted her warmly when she arrived.

Cen Xi nodded at them before taking Qiao Yanze’s private elevator to the top floor.

When Da Zuo saw Cen Xi, he welcomed her warmly. “Miss Cen, you’re here.”

“Where’s your young master?”

“Young Master is welcoming clients in the office. How about I inform him of your arrival?”

Cen Xi waved her hands, smiling as she said, “It’s alright. I’ll wait for him in the meeting room.”

Cen Xi was about to walk toward the meeting room when Qiao Yanze’s office doors were pulled open.

Cen Xi’s eyes met Qiao Yanze’s.

Qiao Yanze wasn’t the only one in the office. There was also a middle-aged man with Qiao Yanze.

Qing Yan was wearing a red shirt that night, together with a ladies suit pants. Her shirt was tucked into her pants, and her long hair was tied into a ponytail, revealing her cold and exquisite facial features. She looked extremely sharp and professional.

She was holding onto a bag, so it was clear that she was planning to leave.

“Xiao Xi, you’re here for Yanze?” Qing Yan was the first to speak, a smile appearing on her lips.

A smile also appeared on Cen Xi’s cold and charming face. “Yes, there’s something I need his help in.”

The middle-aged man glanced at Cen Xi, then at Qiao Yanze. “Young Master Qiao, this is?”

Qiao Yanze approached Cen Xi and wrapped his long arm around her slender shoulder. He introduced without mincing matters, “My fiancée.”

“She’s young, pretty, and elegant. Young Master Qiao is lucky.” The middle-aged man shook Qiao Yanze’s hand. “Young Master Qiao doesn’t have to send us further. I’ll leave with Miss Qing.”

After the middle-aged man left with Qing Yan, Qiao Yanze entered his office with Cen Xi in his arms.

He pulled her toward the sofa. Once he sat down, he pulled her onto his lap. Cen Xi struggled, wanting to get up, but he held onto her tightly, not letting her go.

He explained, “CEO Liu needs a translator. Since you can’t accept private requests, I introduced him to Qing Yan. Are you jealous?”

Cen Xi rested her hands on the man’s broad shoulders as she glared at him in annoyance. “Who do you treat me as? Sister Qing Yan helped us so much. I’m not that petty!”

Qiao Yanze leaned his face closer toward Cen Xi. “Why are you free to look for me at the company today?”

Even though she had been staring at this handsome and devilish face every day recently, Cen Xi’s heart still skipped a beat when he leaned closer. “Stop it. This is your office. If someone comes in and sees us, it will affect your image!”

“What are you scared of? It’s not like we doing any shady things.”

“Yanze, I came to tell you something…”

“Kiss me first.”

Just as they were deep in the kiss, someone suddenly pushed the office door open.

“Excuse me, my… erm…”

When Cen Xi saw the person standing at the door from the corner of her eye, she hurriedly pushed Qiao Yanze away.

“I’m so sorry for interrupting you two.” After seeing what had happened, Qing Yan was a little awkward. “I left my phone here. I’ll go and wait in the lobby first. Yanze, please get Da Zuo to pass my phone to me later!” With that said, Qing Yan closed the office doors.

Cen Xi saw the phone Qing Yan had left on the corner of the sofa. She walked over and picked it up. “I’ll pass it to Sister Qing Yan when I’m leaving later. Oh right, aren’t you participating in a banquet tonight? Let me go with you!”

Qiao Yanze raised an eyebrow as he wrapped her arms around Cen Xi’s waist, pulling her into his arms. “Why did you change your mind?” A few days ago, he told her to participate in a banquet that night with him, but she refused to go no matter what. At that time, the two of them even got into a small argument.

“It’s a secret.”

Cen Xi went downstairs and handed Qing Yan her phone. She wanted to speak to Qing Yan a little. However, Qing Yan left hurriedly with a troubled expression once she got her phone.

Cen Xi furrowed her eyebrows a little, not understanding what had happened to Qing Yan.

At the palace banquet that night.

Cen Xi appeared at the banquet dressed to the nines. After she arrived at the banquet hall, Cen Xi’s eyes locked on the person Gu Meng wanted to meet.
