Chapter 50

The holiday ended, and Su Yao returned to her usual work routine.

Liang Chuyuan offered to walk her there but was stopped. “It’s within walking distance, no need to accompany me.”

I wanted to have breakfast with you.

Su Yao relented, “Alright then.”

They had breakfast near Su Yao’s office building. It was a popular bun shop, and they managed to get a table only after someone else had finished eating.

They ordered dumplings, black rice porridge, siu mai, and two baskets of xiaolongbao. If Liang Chuyuan hadn’t intervened, Su Yao might have ordered more.

“Since you’re here, I want you to try all the specialties.”

I’ll drop you off at work every day from now on.

Huang Wan, however, seemed absent-minded. Su Yao called out to her twice before she snapped out of it. “Su-jie?”

“Yeah,” Su Yao paid for her breakfast as well, “What’s wrong? Are you feeling unwell?”

Huang Wan opened her mouth but didn’t say anything, ultimately shaking her head. “It’s nothing.”

“Okay, good then.” Su Yao had only asked out of politeness. Her relationship with Huang Wan couldn’t even be described as ordinary. The fact that she greeted her now was only because she was in a good mood.

As Huang Wan took the packaged sweet potato buns and was about to thank Su Yao, her attention was drawn to a man walking towards them.

The man elevated the ambiance of the breakfast shop by several notches.

Huang Wan was captivated.

Before the Chinese New Year, she broke up with Kunqian, the reason being vulgar and not hard to guess. Kunqian was fickle, caught red-handed by her on the spot, and they parted ways unhappily. But this wasn’t the outcome she wanted. Her principle in love was that the next partner must be better than the previous one. Kunqian couldn’t be considered the best, but he was the most prestigious man she had ever been involved with.

Huang Wan was picky about boyfriends, not only considering money but also appearance.

Finally encountering a perfect man, she wanted to take the initiative. Hindered by Su Yao’s presence, she was thinking of how to send her away, but she saw her prey holding Su Yao’s waist.

He didn’t speak, just lowered his head to glance at Su Yao, his gaze gentle and affectionate.

Su Yao naturally introduced him, “This is my colleague.”

Huang Wan’s face flushed instantly but quickly calmed down. She tucked her hair behind her ear and smiled shyly, “Hello, I’m Huang Wan.”

However, it was obvious that the man had no intention of telling her his name. He politely nodded and then shifted his gaze away.

Too indifferent.

Su Yao, sitting across from them, glanced at Huang Wan, who seemed shy and then lost. She didn’t understand. She affectionately touched Liang Chuyuan’s chin, where there were suspicious bite marks. “You should go first. My colleague and I will go up together.”

Liang Chuyuan enjoyed her teasing. Alright. Message me after work, and I’ll come pick you up for dinner.

Seeing this, Huang Wan was utterly disappointed. So much so that she didn’t even realize that he hadn’t said a word the whole time.

Seeing her distracted, Su Yao teased, “What? Still immersed in the joys of the holiday?”

Huang Wan was speechless for two seconds, then asked incongruously, “Was that your boyfriend just now?”

She didn’t even use a proper term of address.

Su Yao looked at her meaningfully, “Yes, what’s wrong?”

“Isn’t your boyfriend the one with the Maybach last time?”

Su Yao vaguely guessed what was going on and smiled even more broadly. “Yes, it’s him.”

Huang Wan’s face suddenly stiffened.

This completely contradicted her original guess. She thought, given Su Yao’s age, her partner should be a nouveau riche with a big belly and ears.

Su Yao didn’t have time to understand her psychological activities. She pointed to her watch. “I’ll go first. Don’t be too late.” She said this because since Huang Wan joined the company until now, she had hardly ever been punctual.

Huang Wan watched Su Yao’s graceful figure disappear into the office building, swallowed up by it. She felt a moment of daze and then, catching sight of the new director from the Finance Department, her face regained a hint of color with effort.

She plastered on a smile again and took a step forward. Before she could say “Boss,” Boss briskly approached Su Yao.

The two of them chatted and laughed.

It was glaringly obvious.
