Chapter 786: Never a Decent Man (3)

Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

She remembered that day when Sheng Yize had explicitly said that he didn’t want any children.

An Xiaxia suddenly thought that it wouldn’t be that good an idea to tell Sheng Yize.

“Well… I’d like to surprise him. Let’s wait until Chinese New Year.” An Xiaxia made up an excuse.

Fang Shanshan bought it. “Alright, you have a point. We’ll wait ’til then.”

Qi Yanxi kept his silence in the game.

Su Xiaomo teased him. “Why, dear Flower, you’re not crying over there, are you? Why do I get the feeling that you’re not happy at all?”

Qi Yanxi smiled wryly in front of the computer screen. How could he be happy? He wasn’t the father of An Xiaxia’s child.

He ignored Su Xiaomo. Logging off, he switched off his phone and stumbled back to the bedroom.

Mu Li was still awake. As soon as he lay down, she pressed herself against him.

He felt the softness on his back and smelled her womanly scent. Everything seemed to blur a little. When Mu Li reached for his pajama pants with her trembling fingers, he pushed her away and jumped out of bed. “I just remembered that there’s some work I need to take care of.”

Tears welled up in Mu Li’s eyes as she huddled back under the duvet.

She had gone this far, but he still wouldn’t…

Qi Yanxi, when will I ever have a place in your heart?

On the eighth day of the first month in the lunar calendar, some sort of equilibrium was finally reached in Yu City after the long strife.

According to custom, the Song Group general meeting would be held soon. Chu Zhiyun had already picked out clothes she would wear to the event.

She was no longer the woman she had once been. Those directors and advertisers that had turned her down before were all reaching out to her.

Song Qingwan was probably digging wells in some remote corner of Africa. After getting rid of her, Chu Zhiyun’s life had never been better. A smile seemed permanently stuck to her face.

She recalled a saying when she watched men tear at each other’s throats in the business world.

“Men conquer the world through force and intelligence, while women conquer the world through conquering men.”

She had everything she had ever wanted!

Prestige, reputation, fame… she had it all! She could live in glory for the rest of her life.

She was going to move abroad, but the paperwork had gotten stuck somewhere and she was still waiting. After some consideration, she decided to make a grand entrance at the general meeting before leaving Yu City.

Shengshi Group.

Song Shi sat there with his legs crossed. “The fish has taken the bait and it’s time to close the net.”

“I see.” Sheng Yize nodded.

Song Shi said, “I’m calling Xiaxia. She should be here to watch the show!”

“Alright.” Sheng Yize couldn’t help but smile at the thought of An Xiaxia.

However, something had gotten into the little woman’s head and she had been giving him attitude lately. Their phone calls would only last for a couple of minutes before she found some excuse to hang up. He had been waiting to give her a little punishment.

He would give her a business empire as a New Year present.

“By the way, I’m actually a little worried by your confidence!” Song Shi looked flustered. “What exactly is your final card?”

Sheng Yize glanced at him. “Why should I tell you?”

Pfft —

Song Shi almost choked. “After all the help I’ve given you, you still won’t let me in on your secret?”

Sheng Yize eyed him suspiciously. “Do I know you?”

Song Shi looked terrified. “Mr. Sheng, are you face blind?”

Sheng Yize chuckled. “No, I’m not. I just don’t give a damn about those I don’t care about.”

Song Shi: … That was a critical hit x10000!
