Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 58
A jade family and a jade-engraving family. They were perfectly compatible.
Unfortunately, the two families’ heirs had no chemistry for each other. Now, they were even at the point of becoming hostile with each other.
If not because An ZiYi knew a thing or two about gemstone betting and were able to help them out, the Le family would have never allowed Le ChenXi to decline their engagement. Their ambitions were too high.
Le family also planned on swallowing Xun family whole. But now, they needed to see whether or not XunMi were going to let them.
Mo WenHan repeated Le ChenXi and An ZiYi’s names in his heart as his eyes flashed with coldness. “Don’t worry, nothing will happen to Xun family.”
Later, he’ll have Qiao Yuan go notify those people: if anyone dares harass Xun family, then that would be the same as going up against him.
XunMi naturally didn’t know the workings of Mo WenHan’s mind. What she needed to do now was to take a nice long bath, change into clean clothes, and take another nap.
“Han ge, that….Can you let me first go to the bathroom to clean up and ask a friend to send me some clean clothes?” In the beginning, she didn’t think that there would be anything to say between the two of them. Thus, she didn’t care how she acted in front of him. Now, it was different. After confirming this was her own husband, her attitude took a 180 turn, as she decided to first enjoy herself instead of escaping quickly.
Only did Mo WenHan notice that XunMi’s clothing was wrinkled and torn. Perhaps, he thought guiltily, he caused this with his rough actions last night.
“Do you feel uncomfortable anywhere?” He reached out his hand to lift up XunMi’s clothes, preoccupied with investigating her for injuries. Seeing those deep purple marks, his face delved into self-blame. Last night he really was too rash.
However, just thinking that this person was his made him content and satisfied.
XunMi blushed, her husband’s personality in this world was too straightforward. In the last world, it was only his words that were direct. But now, even his actions were direct. How was she supposed to hold him back?
She quickly reached out to grab his hands, swiftly blurting “Han ge, I’m fine. I, I will go take a bath first. Please leave some clothes outside the bathroom door.” With that, she pushed passed him and ran into the bathroom.
Turning on the faucet, she slapped her face with cold water as she tried to decrease her body temperature. Only now did she have a chance to see this body’s face. Like usually, she was still herself. Perhaps due to the influence of her last world, her aura was intermixed with an ancient sense of elegance.
She buried herself into the warm bathtub water. As expected of the Presidential Suite: everything was available in the bathtub. She poured some essential oil onto her hand as she began combing through the knowledge regarding jadeite available in her memories.
Mo WenHan gazed attentively at the closed door. He could still feel the lingering sensation of her skin on his fingers.
He picked up the telephone by the bedside to call his personal assistant Guan Xiao, asking him to send up two outfits as well as to drive over his most comfortable car and reserving a lunch meal for two.
He then called Qiao Yuan and gave him another set of orders. Afterwards, he returned to silently watching the closed door.
Qiao Yuan and Guan Xiao looked at each other in shock. “What happened to Boss?”
“Stop guessing. Let’s just go find out.” Guan Xiao grabbed the car keys and left immediately. He still needed to go buy clothes!
Qiao Yuan quickly followed him out, hoping to hitch a ride. Xun family’s jadeite store is on the way, right?
XunMi sent a text message to the original XunMi’s close friend Lu MoQin, asking her to tell her father that she was fine and lie that she had stayed at her house last night. XunMi then made plans to meet with her tonight in order to explain what had really happened.
Lu MoQin was a good girl. In the original plot, she was pulled into the conflict after taking XunMi’s side and inciting An ZiYi’s ire.
Thus, the original XunMi requested that, if possible, she help Lu MoQin have a happy, peaceful life. XunMi would naturally be very willing to help such a good friend.
Knock knock! Mo WenHan’s voice rang out, “I’m leaving the clothes right outside!”
XunMi made a sound of acknowledgement and continued to bathe.
Mo WenHan didn’t pay attention to Guan Xiao’s utterly shocked expression, instead headed to the neighboring room to change. While waiting for the clothes to arrive, he had taken a quick shower in the neighboring room’s bathroom.
By the time XunMi had changed and reentered the room, Mo WenHan and Guan Xiao were already discussing today’s work schedule.
“XunMi, this is Guan Xiao, my assistant. If you need anything, you can directly ask him to go do it.” Mo WenHan waved XunMi over.
Guan Xiao looked thoughtful for a moment before relaxing, “Hello, Miss XunMi. I am Guan Xiao.”
“Hello, you can just call me Qearl.” Based on her memories, her family and friends liked to call her by her English name. Her father had said this was because she was Xun family’s most beautiful pearl.
Meanwhile, Han ge naturally liked to call her XunMi. Everyone else referred to her by her English name. If her husband called her by her Chinese name, then it’ll feel more special and meaningful.
“Qearl.” Guan Xiao acknowledged. This XunMi was Xun family’s Miss, the one that had created great buzz and led to predictions that this was going to be the fall of Xun family.
Now, seeing her in person, he was afraid the only thing falling would be Le family. If she was able to get his Boss in her pocket, then why would she be interested in Le family’s weak chicken of a young master? What an idiotic thought.
Look at his Boss’ gentle expression, that slight smile curving on his face. Moreover, his entire atmosphere relaxed. Wasn’t this all demonstrating how much he valued this Xun family’s Young Miss?
Tsk tsk tsk. It looks like there was a storm brewing in S city.
“It’s getting late. Han ge, do you want to eat?” XunMi looked at the color of the sky outside. The sun was already hanging brightly across the sky.
“I’ve made a reservation. Let’s go.” Mo WenHan stood and naturally took XunMi’s hand.
Guan Xiao walked behind them stunned. So his Boss wasn’t asexual. If anyone says there was something wrong with his Boss again, he’ll fight them. It was obvious that Mo WenHan had an owner to his heart already. So he had been keeping his chastity for the person he loved!
See, as soon as his lover returned, he quickly ate her up. His Boss sure was formidable.
The three entered the restaurant, turning heads everywhere they went.
Mo WenHan’s reputation in S city was well-known. He was a VIP in the gemstone betting, the deserving king of the stone and mineral industry.
But who was the elegant woman by his side? They hadn’t heard that this big Boss had a lover. However, looking at how he was not only holding her hand, but also attentively pulling out her chair, that wasn’t the attitude used to treat a mere mistress or a friend.
Could she be a relative? Or perhaps a secret girlfriend? In an instant, those dining had placed their gaze onto the three of them.
Guan Xiao felt that his pressure was huge. Due to his moment’s curiosity, he decided to come to join the fun. Now, he was wondering if he still had time to bounce.
Evidently, it was too late. There was already people calling out his name, even heading over in his direction.
“Mr. Guan?” A surprised voice called out. Subsequently, murmurs grew among a young pair. The man in the pair looked like a teen idol while the woman was a model example of the Pure, Fresh Beauty. She wore a long white skirt and a bright smile on her face.
