Quick Transmigration with Female Lead Aura - Chapter 137
Yang Hai and Jiang Tao exceeded their budget in order to capture the land in the north of the city, and Yang Hai’s company was robbed by Xiao Zheng of several projects one after another. Bai Hai did a lot of useless work and spent time and energy without getting any results. All his efforts were wasted. This directly caused his company’s funds to dwindle for a while, and he became nervous. So, he went to Jiang Tao, hoping that he could help.
Jiang Tao has also encountered some troubles recently. Although Xiao Zheng didn’t target him, the brilliant company that suddenly popped up from nowhere caused them a lot of trouble. Of course, even without this nuisance, he was not very willing to lend money to Yang Hai, can he take out the cooperation funds and borrow money? That’s it.
Yang Hai was angry because he couldn’t borrow the money, but he endured and held it in to the point of almost suffering from a seizure. After that, he asked Jiang Tao to talk to Jiang Nian, and asked her to persuade Xiao Zheng. Isn’t it too unreasonable that he came to trouble him now? Besides, if he wanted to blame someone, he should also blame Guo Xiuyu, she came up with all the bad ideas!
Jiang Tao could still remember when Jiang Nian said that she hated Yang Hai, he thought for a moment and agreed: “I will try my best, but you also know that Jiang Nian and I haven’t reconciled, and I can’t guarantee the outcome of this matter.”
Yang Hai immediately thanked Jiang Tao, said what he should do in the future, and added: “Let Xiuyu reconcile with Jiang Nian quickly, as long as she is willing, your company’s funds will be more abundant. Jiang Nian has been in the Xiao family for so long, there must be a lot of resources in hand…”
That’s the reason!
Jiang Tao wanted to win Jiang Nian so much, because in addition to the ten percent of the shares in her hands, of course, she also had contacts and resources in her hands. These are things that can help his company improve by leaps and bounds!
“Xiuyu, what were you doing when I told you to ask Jiang Nian for forgiveness?”
“…” How can it be? The gifts had cost millions, but she didn’t see Jiang Nian letting go of her grudges nor softening. Guo Xiuyu suspected that Jiang Nian was playing with her. She was deliberately torturing her, she never wanted to return to the Jiang family! Of course, Jiang Tao wouldn’t understand even if she told him that, he would only think that she was doing something bad and would reprimand her again.
Guo Xiuyu said: “I’ve been very attentive, and I don’t give too many bags and jewelry. Although Jiang Nian still didn’t give me a good face, she accepted all the gifts. I think the relationship between us must have loosened up a bit, right?”
Jiang Tao was satisfied and nodded, urging Guo Xiuyu to make persistent efforts, don’t save money shortsightedly, wait for the future…
Wait for the future… and they’ll gain way more than what they spent!
The two of them were playing with the abacus, and even if they were dissatisfied, the gift had to be given to Jiang Nian!
Jiang Nian was so excited to receive the gift over there. It just so happened that Shen Quan’s birthday was approaching , and she went out shopping and bought him a birthday gift very leisurely, because Shen Quan had called her a long time ago and said that for his birthday, she must attend and have fun with them.
Anyway, Jiang Nian was not only receiving gifts every day, but also watching her generous elders’ movements when she was idle. She promised to go to the party long ago to add some youthful color to her life corrupted by money.
After all, Shen Quan was only twenty-five this year, at the peak of his youth.
On Shen Quan’s birthday, Xiao Zheng naturally went too. The two grew up together since childhood. After the Xiao family accident, many people around him changed their faces, but Shen Quan was still the same, and the Shen family also helped him a lot. Not to mention that Jiang Nian would be attending, so he will definitely attend as well. Hence, he finished his business early, and drove to Shen Quan’s villa in the city after work.
When he arrived, the villa was already full of people, decorated with lanterns, red wine, champagne, and beautiful women. Accompanied by loud music, there was an endless stream of applause and cheers from the crowd, many of whom he had met before. In addition to some old acquaintances, there were also a few popular flowers and young models, which is quite common in the entertainment industry.
The Shen family is rich. Shen Quan’s father owns a brokerage company. He invests in a lot of movies every year, and his company is even more famous. Shen Quan is the only heir of the Shen family. It is not surprising that stars come to his birthday party.
Xiao Zheng lost interest after only one glance, and turned to look for Jiang Nian’s shadow in the crowd.
However, the fact that he was not interested in others, did not necessarily mean that others were not interested in him. Many people saw Xiao Zheng, their eyes flashed, and they stepped forward with a smile: “Mr. Xiao, you are here, Shen Shao is inside.”
Xiao Zheng lightly hummed, moved his feet and entered the room.
Zhou Li pursed her lips, trotted behind Xiao Zheng, and smiled sweetly: “Mr. Xiao, we met before, at the charity dinner organized by the Shen family, you were facing so many powerful people on the stage, talking so openly and freely. It made me admire it, because I can’t do it. It’s easy to be shy when there are too many people. I later heard that you began to learn to handle official duties when you were eighteen years old, and now you are able to manage the whole company on your own. You are really amazing! I adore you so much! I want to learn from you.”
There was a constant buzzing noise in Xiao Zheng’s ears. Xiao Zheng frowned and showed impatience, but Zhou Li seemed to be unaware, walking beside him with a smile on her face, young and beautiful, showcasing her pure and lovely face.
Xiao Zheng was about to speak when suddenly someone threw a rose above his head. He looked up and saw Shen Quan lying on the handrail on the second floor. The boy raised his eyebrows and smiled at him, his eyes were full of teasing, while standing next to him was Jiang Nian who was also lying on the armrest.
She was also smiling at the moment, grabbed the phone with both hands, and took time to look at him.
Xiao Zheng’s face sank immediately, and he stared at Zhou Li gloomily: “Go away!”
Zhou Li’s smile froze on her face, she was born beautiful, and her family was wealthy. She was aggrieved, she took the initiative to find Xiao Zheng, but in return, she got rebuked? Her face turned red then white then a mix of both, as she watched Xiao Zheng striding away without turning his head.
She froze in place for a moment, it was clearly a space where music was deafening, but she seemed to hear someone giggling. She was embarrassed, didn’t dare to wait any longer, and pretended that nothing had happened, turned around and went to the bathroom.
Yun Shu stood in the corner, looked at Zhou Li who was far away, and looked up at Jiang Nian who was leaning against the armrest. She frowned in confusion, wondering why Xiao Zheng suddenly changed his face? But Xiao Zheng’s mood has always been moody. Sometimes he will laugh suddenly, his always gloomy face looking cute for a moment, but after the laugh, his face will often become deeper and colder, like frost.
His emotions were so unpredictable that people couldn’t understand him at all. That’s what makes them even more fearful of him.
She sighed and followed upstairs.
But to her surprise, what she saw was not the taciturn Xiao Zheng. The latter mimicked Jiang Nian and rested against the armrest, seemingly indifferent, but said cautiously, “I saw that woman for the first time.” He glanced at him Jiang Nian’s mobile phone and found that she was shopping at a certain treasure shop. It was full of gold items. He was used to the status quo for a long time, and he didn’t expect Jiang Nian to care about him. She could also find a good man to marry. He will still protect her, but at this moment she really ignored him… He was still a little disappointed.
Before Jiang Nian could speak, he heard Shen Quan burst into laughter, Xiao Zheng glanced at him with daggers hidden in his eyes. He stared at Shen Quan, who covered his mouth and pretended to cough, and asked him, “Why do you invite anyone?”
Shen Quan shrugged: “Why do you still blame me? Isn’t that blaming you, Mr. Xiao, who is so charming? Besides, I don’t even know the name of that woman, the ghost knows who brought her.”
Xiao Zheng: ” You are so cheap, you can take everyone in your eyes.”
Shen Quan: “…” A big man such as yourself shouldn’t be so arrogant and stingy, okay?
Jiang Nian rolled her eyes, took a screenshot and sent it to Jiang Tao. When she was done, she was satisfied. She finally made up for the loss of buying gifts today.
“I’m hungry, I’m going to have something to eat.”
Xiao Zheng said immediately, “I’m hungry too, let’s go together.”
Jiang Nian hummed in agreement.
Shen Quan watched Xiao Zheng follow Jiang Nian downstairs to find something to eat. He touched his nose and thought helplessly: this is probably the legend of “one object best another object”*. Xiao Zheng was crazy in front of outsiders, but when he arrived in front of Jiang Nian, he really turned into a harmless little candy, so sweet and caring. Only at this time, could he vaguely see the shadow of Xiao Zhen’s child self.
(一物降一物: lit. one object bests another object / every item has a weakness (idiom) / there is a rock to every scissor, a scissor to every paper, and a paper to every rock)
But Yun Shu, who was standing on the other side of the stairs, was dumbfounded. She finally understood where that strange sense of obedience came from, why Xiao Zheng didn’t allow her to mention her relationship with him in front of Jiang Nian, and why when she was just sitting with Jiang Nian and having a few words with her, Xiao Zheng called quickly and sternly and told her to leave immediately!
She thought it was because he didn’t want her as a fake to have too much contact with his family, but now it seems that it’s not like that at all!
Perhaps in the eyes of uninformed outsiders, Xiao Zheng is obedient and respectful to Jiang Nian, but her woman’s intuition tells her that no, Xiao Zheng has other plans for Jiang Nian…
Yun Shu felt her heart was pounding, she was a little sad and a little dazed, she just didn’t understand why Xiao Zheng liked Jiang Nian, she was his sister-in-law! Is he crazy? !
She pursed her lips, but was suddenly tapped on the shoulder, she was startled, and turned back in panic.
Shen Quan stood behind Yun Shu and said, “What did you see?”
Yun Shu hurriedly lowered her head: “I… I don’t know anything.”
Shen Quan smiled and said, “It’s fine if you don’t know, there are some things, it’s better not to know.”
Yun Shu raised her head and glanced at Shen Quan, her hand on one side clenched tightly.
Of course she heard what Shen Quan meant. He wanted her to keep it secret and pretend she didn’t know anything.
It turned out that Shen Quan also knew.
“You… don’t you think it’s weird?”
“Where is it?”
“They’re not suitable. If others knew about it, what would they say about him?” She always felt that Xiao Zheng would deserve better. Jiang Nian was very good, she’s amazing, but the gap between her and Xiao Zheng is too big, and there is a barrier of identity. If it is spread out, what will outsiders say?
(and the better is you, Yan Shy?)
Shen Quan’s eyes turned cold, and he smiled contemptuously: “Others? Who are they? What are they?”
Yun Shu’s heart tightened, knowing that her words made Shen Quan unhappy, he usually was quite carefree, but now that he was angry, it was unexpectedly terrifying, “I didn’t mean that…”
“No matter what you mean, Ah Zheng has helped you, so you shouldn’t say such things.”
“…” Yun Shu’s face turned white, and she became silent.
Shen Quan didn’t say any more, and followed her downstairs.
Yun Shu smiled bitterly, regretting a little, maybe she shouldn’t have come today.
Jiang Nian picked out a piece of fruit, some pasta, and vegetable salad, but Xiao Zheng didn’t take anything. He was only responsible for serving the plates to Jiang Nian. He stood quietly beside her and looked at her with deep eyes. He lost the gloom and coldness that screamed “strangers should not enter”, but his whole being added a little softness. Of course, once someone was ignorant and wanted to approach, he almost immediately glanced at him, and the coldness in his eyes could force people to retreat in fright immediately!
There was a warning message all over him that said: I don’t like anyone disturbing me, proceed at your own risk.
The outside world is still full of rumors indicating that Jiang Nian abdicated because she was jealous of Xiao Zheng and was alienated by Xiao Zheng later on. At this moment, it seems that’s not the case at all!
What fear and alienation, it’s absolutely impossible.
