Because the issue caused such a huge ruckus, naturally Han Yifeng followed it closely too.
Back then, not many people knew about the incident. Had it been someone without malicious intentions, they would not have dug this matter up. When he made Secretary Wang investigate this, Xi Xiaye’s face had actually been flashing through his mind from time to time.
He remembered that back then, Xi Xiaye had also tried very hard to explain to him, but he had merely responded with silence. He could not explain how he felt then. He did not know whether he should believe her or not!
However, now, if he was asked whether Xi Xiaye would do such a thing, he would definitely say frankly that she would not!
“I’m sorry, CEO Han. We haven’t found out for now. The people at the Economy Times aren’t willing to reveal anything. This matter has already been suppressed by Chairman Mu, while this incident has also affected Mayor Xi, so I didn’t dare ask too much,” Secretary Wang answered softly, studying the brooding Han Yifeng. He could not help but say again, “CEO Han, I’m not sure if I should inform you about something.”
“What is it?” Han Yifeng asked gruffly.
“Miss Xinyi has been asking me to get her books on management these past few days. She says she wants to start fresh and return to your side with a new identity. She’s decided to quit the showbiz industry and will let you manage Yueying. She wants to be your helpful assistant just like Chairman Mu and Miss Xiaye.
“She cried and begged me that she didn’t want anything. She just hopes that you can give her one more chance. CEO Han, forgive me for speaking up. Actually, I can tell that Miss Xinyi really loves you. If she can really changes for you this time, maybe you should give her a chance. After all, it’s very hard to meet someone that matches you in this world. All these years, haven’t you been living happily with Miss Xinyi, CEO Han?”
Secretary Wang could not bear to see Xi Xinyi so weak and pitiful. After he thought about it, he decided to say a few kind words in the end.
When he heard this, Han Yifeng was stunned too.
Indeed, these past few years they had been living happily together, and he was contented too, so why was it that everything had changed once they returned?
‘What I want is very simple. If he can treat me well, I don’t care about anything else.’
‘We’re back to our starting point now. Now, we can leave each other alone. I don’t want to look back at our past anymore.’
‘Just like how you wanted me to let go of you and Xi Xinyi… You told me yourself that your love for Xi Xinyi is true love…’
Xi Xiaye’s every word suddenly seemed to harshly knock on his heart like a heavy mallet. He could not help but feel a numbing pain as his head was filled with her condescending and mocking gaze at the South River that day.
As if the air all around him was instantly sucked away, he suddenly felt a little suffocated. A while after that, he waved his hand for Secretary Wang to leave.
Secretary Wang then retreated quietly.
Inside the Chairman’s office of Glory World Corporation.
When he received Ah Mo’s call, Mu Yuchen was sitting leisurely on the recliner under the book shelf, he was flipping through a book, his fingers even casually had half a cigarette.
“Master, I’ve finished arranging the information. This time, we can definitely make Yang Jianfeng pay the price and return Missus her innocence!”
Mu Yuchen had always felt assured by Ah Mo’s work. As someone who shadowed him by his side, Ah Mo’s capabilities were stellar.
As he listened, Mu Yuchen’s still eyes turned slightly cold. He casually released a puff of smoke and said calmly, “Just send it straight to the court. I’ve already handled it over there.”
“Yes, Master!” Ah Mo answered in a low voice, “Right, Master, I have news.”
“I heard that Han Yifeng’s mother, Huang Ziyao, has already made Xi Xinyi sign the marriage contract, and then it was sent straight the Han Corporation for Han Yifeng to sign in the afternoon. However, Han Yifeng seems to be hesitating…”
“Hesitating? Why’s he hesitating?”
The corner of Mu Yuchen’s lips curled up with disdain, yet his eyes were gloomy. “Find a way to make him sign it. Does he have no right to stay out of this?”
“Don’t worry, Master, I’ll get it done. Now that he’s temporarily handling Yueying, I’m worried that on Missus’ end…”
“I already knew that they’d do that. Your sis-in-law isn’t managing Yueying now. She’s only handling the South River matters.”
“Master, you are wise.” Ah Mo could not help but smile. No wonder he had given all the South River project work to Missus, allowing her no time for other things. In fact, when Vice President Liu wanted her to go to Yueying, Master had rejected without hesitation. He was too obvious.
He did not want to let the Missus and Han Yifeng have any chance of bumping into each other!
Now, he was even…
Really going to let Han Yifeng get married to Xi Xinyi?
“Master, wouldn’t this be too convenient for Xi Xinyi?”
Mu Yuchen smirked, calmly extinguishing the cigarette in his hand. “If he doesn’t get married, how can I send out the gift I prepared?”
“I want to take over the entire Yueying and give it to your sis-in-law as dowry, and not an empty rack. Han Yifeng’s pretty capable, so I’m looking forward to seeing how he recovers Yueying. That’ll save us a lot of effort too.”
When Mu Yuchen said this, Ah Mo already understood the meaning behind his words. He then grinned. “Yes, Master, I’ll find a way to make him sign it.”
When Xi Xiaye brought the documents over, Mu Yuchen had just hung up on the call with Ah Mo. His face was still infected with a smile and he looked a little mysterious.
“What’s up? Smiling so evilly?”
Xi Xiaye squinted and looked at him with her plain eyes. She handed the documents over. “This is all the material about Imperial Sky Entertainment Club. Take a look. If there’re no problems, then sign it for me.”
He stopped smiling and reached out to take it. Flipping the document open, he said, “Missus, do you have any particular prejudice against me recently? Do I look like the kind of person who’d smile evilly?”
She shot him a side look and handed him a pen. “What do you think?”
He took the pen and then swiftly penned down his exuberant signature. Then, he closed it and handed it back to her. “Leave work earlier this evening. Send the document back and then pack up. I’ll wait for you downstairs.”
She glanced seriously at the signature, then asked casually, “What are we doing?”
“It’s Su Chen’s birthday. He’s booked a private room at Imperial Sky. You should change before we go,” he said as he examined her uptight work outfit.
“It’s not a birthday party, is it?” Xi Xiaye closed the document and asked calmly.
“No, it’s just a gathering among a few buddies.”
“Family is allowed for a buddies’ gathering? Hmm, Su Chen is quite reasonable. Fine, I got it. I’ll go downstairs first,” Xi Xiaye said with a smile. Before he could reply, she had already turned to leave the office.
