Chapter 206: It’s Just A Game
The mention of Song Xiaose put Pei Xu in a much better mood. He asked Song Wenye, “Is Song Xiaose feeling better?”
Song Wenye replied, “She’s been well for a while now.”
Lin Ge had a facepalm moment. Were relationships that complicated? He could not wrap his head around them.
He thought the only reason Alpha Xu was attending school was to woo Su Ruowan and there was no other reason.
Lin Ge was under the impression that Alpha Xu only had eyes for her!
Song Wenye sighed. “Alpha Xu is only going after Su Ruowan to rile Gu Xiaohan up.”
Oh, give her a break. Lin Ge had been with Alpha Xu for quite some time, yet he did not seem to know anything. Alpha Xu and Gu Xiaohan did not see eye to eye and the former was courting Su Ruowan for the heck of p*ssing Gu Xiaohan off.
Alpha Xu would pursue just about anyone on a whim. Today, his target could be Su Ruowan, and tomorrow it was Song Xiaose while the day after could be someone else. It was all just a game to him and nothing he would take seriously.
Nevertheless, his courtship of Su Ruowan proved to be the longest. After making the bet with Gu Xiaohan, Alpha Xu began to make advances on her, and it had become quite the talk of the town.
However, Su Ruowan was having a blast playing dumb and hard to get. With a fiancé in tow, she was not going to say yes to Alpha Xu that easily.
By now, Lin Ge seemed to have gotten it as he scratched his head. So that was it. “Alpha Xu, I’ll see to it right away.”
He thought it was weird that Alpha Xu stopped looking for Su Ruowan in the past few months. Since Gu Xiaohan was not around, who was he to put on a show for?
“Hold on, I’ll go with you.” Song Wenye stood up and turned to Pei Xu. “Hand over the invitation.”
Her old man surely received the invitation, but she did not have one. She wanted to catch a glimpse of her Youyou’s beautiful face but most importantly, to protect Xixi.
Pei Xu handed over his invitation to her.
Song Wenye pompously drove a drop-top with Pei Xu’s bouquet of roses. God knows what she told the security to let her in.
Alas, she did not manage to meet Gu Xiaohan, Su Ruowan, or even Shen Xi.
Situ Zhangyou informed her that Shen Xi had just left.
With business out of the way, Shen Xi excused herself with Old Master Situ and left.
The car passed by Li Mansion.
Shen Xi solemnly ordered, “Wei Feng, drop me off here. You can return to the office.”
It was evening by then.
The weather was not the greatest as snowfall was looming.
Wei Feng was a man of few words. He noticed on their way here that Lil Chairman Shen seemed to bear an inexplicable sentiment towards Li Mansion. He stopped the car. “Do you need me to come and fetch you later?”
Shen Xi shook her head. “It’s fine. I can grab a cab.”
Wei Feng was silent. It was not easy to hail a cab here as only private sedans were allowed in the area. He respectfully acknowledged. “Sure.”
The North wind was howling outside.
Overwhelmed with mixed emotions, Shen Xi lifted her chin to look at Li Mansion and slowly made her way towards the building. The closer she approached, the more she was drawn into the profound sense of history the architecture evoked.
According to the encyclopedia, Li Mansion came into existence more than seven centuries ago, a hundred and fifty years before the imperial city completed its structure. The mansion was the oldest and most completed architectural ensemble in its scale. Every bit of nature inside was priceless.
The entrance of Li Mansion did not have any surveillance, setting it apart from other residences. The gate was closed and a tourist group could be seen walking by. The tour guide stopped at the gate and made an introduction.
