Chapter 205: Who’s Song Xiaose
Shen Xi turned her attention to Yu An. “Why are you at the loo?”
Yu An frowned. She wanted to say something but she was at a loss for words at the same time.
“You don’t need to explain.” Shen Xi figured it was not because of herself but because of Gu Xiaohan.
Shen Xi felt a little down that Yu An came to Gu Xiaohan’s rescue instead of hers. Nevertheless, it did lift Shen Xi’s guilt.
“Get some rest.” Shen Xi had no idea what to say to her. Truth be told, she had little interest in Yu An’s past or her relationship with Gu Xiaohan.
As Shen Xi was about to walk away, Yu An called out to her and looked at her. “I’m sorry.”
Feeling weird about it, Shen Xi turned around and said, “Get better soon. You’ve been good and done me no wrong.”
As an employee, Yu An did enough by working hard and earnestly.
Situ Zhangge walked with Shen Xi to catch up about Yu An. “Thank you for taking care of Yu An lately.”
Shen Xi smiled politely. “You’re welcome. I was the one who brought her out here and it’s hard enough for her to survive out there alone. I’m glad I could be of any help.”
It just never occurred to her that Yu An was a member of the Situ family.
“Su Ruowan’s actual target is you, right?” Situ Zhangge read Su Ruowan like a book. “She’s bad news. If it happens once, it’d only happen again. You need to watch out for yourself.”
While it was easy to defend against attacks out in the open, it was a different story when it came to a stab in the back. Someone like Su Ruowan with a victim mentality always had something up her sleeve!
“Got it. Thank you for letting me know. I’ll be out of your hair.” Shen Xi got up.
It would still come down to whether Su Ruowan had what it took to put Shen Xi in harm’s way.
It was rather interesting when Shen Xi thought about it. Gu Xiaohan was not as straightforward as he appeared to be, as though he switched personalities during his time locked in the toilet stall.
She had reasons to suspect that he had seen through Su Ruowan’s true colors and switched out the acid in the bottle beforehand. Despite being aware of Su Ruowan’s character, Gu Xiaohan defended her without hesitation. This was a true testimony to his heartfelt feelings!
Song Wenye and the group had caught wind of Shen Xi appearing at Old Master Situ’s birthday celebration.
In a karaoke lounge, Song Wenye finally ditched the microphone she had been hogging and gulped down almost a whole bottle of water before throwing a question at Pei Xu. “Xixi went to Situ’s place, Alpha Xu. Don’t you want to go and take a look?”
Pei Xu raised his brow. “I can’t be bothered to see Situ Zhangyou’s face. Why don’t you go since you’re worried that she’d be picked on?”
Song Wenye snapped back. “You don’t have his good looks. I’d have gone had I received the invitation. Why don’t you hand your invitation to me, and I’ll protect Xixi? However, I heard that Gu Xiaohan had brought Su Ruowan along.”
Pei Xu scoffed and said, “Lin Ge, order 9999 roses and deliver them to Situ’s residence for Su Ruowan.”
Lin Ge rushed over and curiously asked him. “Alpha Xu, you’re not going?”
It had been quite a while since Alpha Xu spoke to Su Ruowan. Here he thought that Alpha Xu had given up as his feelings were not reciprocated. It seemed Su Ruowan was still on his mind!
“Just go. What are you rattling on about?” Song Wenye gave him a side glance. “The sight of Su Ruowan would probably make Alpha Xu sick.”
Lin Ge looked confused. “No… Doesn’t Alpha like Su Ruowan?”
Lin Ge never really looked kindly upon Su Ruowan and only addressed her as the goddess to make Alpha Xu happy since she was whom Alpha Xu was courting after all.
Song Wenye gazed at Lin Ge as though he was an idiot. “Yeah, right. As if Alpha Xu will woo Su Ruowan. It’s more like your Alpha Xu is after my Song Xiaose!”
Lin Ge was dumbfounded. “And who’s Song Xiaose?”
