His One Love - Chapter 52
After it was over, Lu Wanwan felt a little tired, she removed her makeup and washed her face and only then did she somewhat recover some of her spirits back up.
Today, as usual, there was a group gathering, Lu Wanwan originally had no intention to go, but thinking about it, it seemed that there were quite a lot of people looking forward to gossip about her behind her back and look at her as a joke.
The representative of the event organizer introduced Shen Yi respectfully, fearing that anything he might say might make him angry.
The Shen family’s reputation was too big, and now the Shen family’s big boss had especially notified him in advance, his explicit and implicit meaning was that he was hoping everyone to properly take care of his little brother.
He said to take care of him, but actually he was just being polite.
They couldn’t make the person angry.
The Shen family had a strong background that no one dared to offend.
“This is the second gentleman of the Shen family.”
From the beginning to the end, the man didn’t even say two words and just silently took a seat next to Lu Wanwan. Someone toasted him but he didn’t drink and just indifferently refused.
The whole table of people, apart from the representative of the event organizer, they were all the same that were watching Lu Wanwan as a joke yesterday and all were aware of their relationship.
The ex-husband and the ex-wife could still sit nicely at the same table? That was a rare sight.
Some of them who liked to see trouble were deliberating inside their mind whether or not this new son of the Shen family was here to find trouble for his ex-wife ? If he was, that would be too funny.
Among those sitting at the table, those who hated Lu Wanwan weren’t few, especially after hearing today that she had used tricks to get Xia Zhi’s work, these people were now despising Lu Wanwan even more.
They had already heard of her reputation a few years ago, that she had a bad temper, was disrespectful towards people and had a bit of foul money, was haughty and pretentious, but that it attracted men’s favor.
A bold girl among them held a glass of wine and approached Shen Yi, “CEO Shen, let me give you a toast.”
Shen Yi’s face was expressionless, he didn’t even bother to raise his eyelids and didn’t take even one look at her face.
The woman who had just lost face was extremely ashamed.
The wine glass she was holding was awkwardly frozen in mid-air, and no one reached their hand to accept it.
Finally it was the representative, who couldn’t bear to watch this scene any longer, who came up to mend the situation, “Mr. Shen doesn’t drink.”
The woman went along with this opportunity he was giving her to get out of this embarrassing situation, “I was the one who was rude.”
Seeing that scene, Lu Wanwan thought it was quite funny, she never thought Shen Yi turned out to be so popular, when they were in high school, there weren’t so many people gathering in front of him, trying to get his attention.
Taking a small sip of wine, she had a sweet smile on her face as she held her chin up. She seemed a little drunk.
Someone tried to take advantage of the opportunity to pour Lu Wanwan another glass, so that she would make a fool of herself after drinking and lose face. But before the glass was handed over to her, it was stopped by Shen Yi who reached out first.
Shen Yi didn’t say any extra word and, holding the half-drunk Lu Wanwan, he just directly left the table.
This move stunned all the people at the table.
The unknowing representative was dumbstruck, “What’s the relationship between these two ah?”
The others also couldn’t understand it, weren’t they divorced ?
Shen Yi didn’t bring his car and thus he just directly called a taxi to go back home.
Mid-way, Lu Wanwan’s phone rang once, Shen Yi originally didn’t intend to answer the call for her, but Lu Wanwan herself accidentally pressed the answer button.
“Wanwan, mom has thought about it, it’s a great thing that you two are divorcing, it was difficult for you to finally have this awakening and mom has been looking forward to this day for a long time.”
“But as your mother, I thought it over, and I still think that the property being divided equally between you two is too easy for Shen Yi that kid! Why should he lose nothing after you’ve given away your youth? I’m telling you, you have to get him out of your household completely naked.”
“If he doesn’t agree, you go file a lawsuit, we have money in our Lu family, we’re not afraid of going to court!”
Shen Yi waited patiently for his mother-in-law to finish her speech before he said in a low voice, “Mom, it’s me.”
Lu Wanwan’s mother: ……
“What about my daughter?”
Shen Yi looked at the person wriggling restlessly in his arms and said, “She’s drunk now, she’s about to go to sleep.”
Lu Wanwan’s mother kept her calm and composure: “Take good care of her.”
Then she hung up the phone as quickly as she could.
Shen Yi carried the person home, helped her undress and wiped her body, before putting the person on the bed. He also did not forget to tuck her in the blanket.
He also undressed himself and went to sleep beside her, he held the person in his arms but didn’t do anything else.
