Chapter 394: This is for you
“You have just come back from the company!” Xiao Zuo moved his chair in his direction, and struck up a conversation cheerily.
“En.” Luo Yibei returned with the same flippance.
“You worked overtime alone?” Xiao Zuo pried again.
What he actually wanted to ask was, didn’t Fang Chixia accompany him today?
“En.” The same fleeting word came out, as if adding more was unnecessary.
“What about your many assistants? When have you been so compassionate towards your employees, letting them go and while you work overtime?” Xiao Zuo grinned, his gibe should be questioned whether he was praising or criticising him.
Luo Yibei glanced at him, raising an eyebrow and rejoined, “When did you start caring about my assistants so much?”
“He, hehehe, I was just asking.” Xiao Zuo smiled slyly.
Who cares about his assistants?
He just wanted to gossip about Chixia, that’s all.
That stupid woman wouldn’t be so ignorant, and still refused to make a move after his call, right?
“Go play your game.” Luo Yibei dismissed him.
“Well then, I’m leaving.” Xiao Zuo slipped off his chair and took a few steps forward, but thinking of Fang Chixia, he tracked back unwillingly.
“Brother, why didn’t you bring the assistant, whom you always bring with you everywhere?” Xiao Zuo asked, keeping the toothy smile on his tiny face.
In fact, he knew very well that it was completely inappropriate to bring Fang Chixia to attend such an event tonight.
He was just trying to understand why Luo Yibei was not with Fang Chixia.
“You’re too nosy, want to copy scriptures again tonight?” Luo Yibei looked down, glanced at him coldly, and sipped his glass of wine slowly.
Xiao Zuo had no choice but to leave dejectedly.
He knew that Fang Chixia has no idea that it was his birthday today, but he didn’t really mind such occasions, so when he got up in the morning, he didn’t mention it.
He took out his cell phone to see if she has called him for anything.
Caller ID, no missed call.
Luo Yibei stared at the phone for a while, and put the phone aside.
Not far away, Su Ran made a beeline towards him carrying two dinner plates. She handed one of them to him, and put her own beside him.
After sitting in the position that Xiao Zuo has vacated, she took out a high-end jewelry box and passed it to him, “This is for you.”
Luo Yibei merely gave it a glance and put it aside.
Su Ran stiffened immediately, but said nothing.
“Would you blame me for inviting so many of your friends?” Helping him slice the food on his dinner plate, she peered up cautiously.
“No.” Luo Yibei answered airily.
“Then have a good time tonight.” Su Ran’s lip bent slightly.
“En.” Luo Yibei responded indifferently, taking over the utensils himself.
In the villa.
Fang Chixia waited for a while after dinner was served, toured around the room back and forth, glanced at the time on her mobile phone several times. It was still early at nine.
Past nine was still early.
Fang Chixia stared at the time. A thought popped into her mind so he opened the door of the villa and went out for a while.
When she came back, she had a small gift bag in her hand.
