“She’s my assistant. She will take good care of Xiao Ze.” Cheng Liyue retorted. This man’s words were too distasteful.
“In short, from now on, I’ll be the one responsible for his safety. If you need to work, just go to work. Leave him to me.” Gong Yexiao’s handsome face was taut.
“Mommy, you go to work. I’ll stay here with daddy. I still have so much to tell him.” The little boy also didn’t want to leave his daddy.
Cheng Liyue had the urge to drag him home but Shen Junyao was rushing her. She had no choice but to go over immediately. Gritting her teeth, she said, “Alright, I’ll pick you up after work.”
“No need for that. I’ll bring him home with me. My chauffeur will pick you up and send you to my house.” Gong Yexiao didn’t want to be separated from the little fellow either.
Cheng Liyue was overcome with bitterness. But she didn’t want to make this obvious in front of her son. Ever since he was young, she couldn’t bear for him to see her lose her temper.
“Alright!” Cheng Liyue had no other choice but to comply. Looking at this imposing, noble and extraordinary man, she said, “Don’t randomly give Xiao Ze things to eat. Also, it’s too cold here, turn up the temperature of your air conditioner.”
Brows furrowed, Gong Yexiao thought: this woman even dare to manage him.
“I believe that I have the ability to take care of my son.” Gong Yexiao was displeased. Why was this woman so naggy?
“It had better be as you’d said.” Cheng Liyue started for the door after giving Xiao Ze a tender and affectionate smile. “See you later, son.”
The little boy blew her a kiss. “Mommy, be careful on your way.”
Nodding at him, Cheng Liyue hurried out the door.
“Daddy, can you let your driver send mommy?” The little fellow felt sorry for his mommy because she had to take a cab.
Whatever requests his son made, Gong Yexiao would not refuse. He had to use the shortest time possible to win his son’s favor.
“Alright.” Gong Yexiao smiled. Taking out his cell phone, he put in a call to his chauffeur. “Head to the main entrance and pick up a woman dressed in a gray suit. Her name is Cheng Liyue. Wait for her to get off work and send her over to to my place tonight.”
Once Cheng Liyue stepped outside the Gong skyscraper, she saw a middle-aged man smiling at her. “May I ask if you’re Ms. Cheng Liyue? I am Mr. Gong Yexiao’s chauffeur. He sent me to drop you off at work.”
Cheng Liyue was taken aback. She subconsciously lifted her head up to gaze at the skyscraper. Would he be that kind?
Cheng Liyue gave it another look. It was not easy to get a cab now. She then nodded. “Alright. I would have to trouble you then.”
There was a designated car right here. Why would she decline it?
After giving him the address, the chauffeur promptly drove her there. As she was about to get off the car, she heard him said, “Ms. Cheng, I’ll be waiting for you here. Mr. Gong has asked me to take you to his house this evening.”
Cheng Liyue hated Gong Yexiao — that egomaniac. A man of high caliber but one who was ill-mannered. However, towards others, she was very polite. She nodded and gave the chauffeur a smile. “Okay, thank you.”
Cheng Liyue strode into the cafe. Arriving at the assigned room, she saw Linda sitting on the sofa and next to her sat Shen Junyao who was decked out in a gorgeous red dress with her legs crossed haughtily, sipping on a glass of red wine.
“You’ve arrived!” Shen Junyao gave a scornful laugh. Turning to Linda, she said, “I want to have a chat with Designer Cheng. Would you please go back first?”
Linda nodded. Giving Cheng Liyue a look of encouragement, she then left with her assistant.
When the door had been shut, Shen Junyao started to laugh as she gave Cheng Liyue a once over and saw that she looked worn out. Clicking her tongue in a conceited manner, she said, “Cheng Liyue, seeing you like this, really makes me pity you!”
Remaining impassive, Cheng Liyue asked, “May I ask what are your thoughts on my design draft?”
Shen Junyao let out a snort. With a sneer, she said, “What design draft? Kids in elementary school can do better than you. Do you expect me to spend millions of dollars on such a design?
