Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
Zhao Zixuan was anxious. He reached out to grab the phone. “How dare you trick me!”
Xu Wanwan was prepared. She immediately put the phone into her pocket and beckoned for the waiter.
“Please help me pack up the remaining dishes and send them to this address later.” She gave the address of the Li family to the waiter.
“Okay, may I know how the bill is going to be settled”
Xu Wanwan looked at Zhao Zixuan. “Of course, this gentleman here will settle the bill.”
After she said that, she turned around elegantly and left without looking back.
The waiter walked toward Zhao Zixuan with a long list of bills. “Sir, your total bill today is 1,808,800 yuan.”
Zhao Zixuan was so angry that he let out a deep breath. He picked up the teacup on the table with one hand and slammed it onto the ground.
“Damn Xu Wanwan, just you wait!”
After walking out of the restaurant, Xu Wanwan got into the drivers car. She then turned around and sent the recording to Xu Yue.
After doing all this, she put her phone into her pocket and looked out the window at the rapidly retreating scenery. The corners of her lips curled up into a smile.
The driver saw her smile through the rearview mirror and asked curiously, “Miss Xu, did you encounter something good just now”
“Its nothing. I just taught a bad person a lesson.” Xu Wanwan smiled politely at the driver.
The driver saw that Xu Wanwan did not put on airs, so he let go. “I saw that you did not come out just now, so I was still very worried. After all, Director Li told me to take good care of you.”
Hearing the drivers words, Xu Wanwans heart was slightly touched.
She did not expect Li Jingran to take care of her like this.
“I didnt run into anything. Tell Director Li not to worry.”
The driver finally let out a sigh of relief. “Its good that youre okay. Ill report back to Director Li.”
Back at the Li family home, Xu Wanwan went to the butler and asked when Li Jingran goes home.
“Sir usually finishes work at five in the afternoon. If you dont work overtime, you can get home at six in the evening.”
Xu Wanwan looked at the time. It was only a little past one in the afternoon. There were still a few hours before he got off work.
“Okay, I got it. Thank you.”
The butler liked Xu Wanwans politeness and understanding more and more. He could not help but ask, “Miss Xu, are you bored Do you need me to help you open the door of the recreation room”
“No need. School is about to start. I still need to read and study.” Xu Wanwan shook her head.
The appreciation in the butlers eyes increased a little.
This top scorer in Science really lived up to her reputation. He even wanted to study during the holidays.
When she returned to her room, Xu Wanwan changed her clothes and took out a few books about programming from her bag.
Her fingertips caressed the pages of the books, and a hint of determination flashed in her eyes.
In her previous life, she was very interested in programming, but she did not have the opportunity to learn.
In this life, she must find her dream again and make up for the regret of her previous life.
After an unknown amount of time, the sound of a butler knocking can be heard through the door.
“Miss Xu, Sir has something to ask you.”
Xu Wanwan then closed her book and looked at the time. It was already past six oclock.
She got up to open the door and followed the butler to the second floor.
She pushed open the door of the study and adjusted her state. The corners of her mouth curled up, and she called out obediently, “Mister Li, you have something to ask me”
Li Jingran stopped what she was doing and looked up. When he saw the girl standing at the door, his eyes lit up.
She was wearing a fitting white dress with her hair tied behind her ears. She had a smile on her face and had a pure and beautiful temperament.
This girl did not give off the feeling of being pretentious. Although she was not as pitiful as when she first came to the Li family, her eyes were filled with warmth and determination.
Li Jingran curled his lips in satisfaction. “Come here.”
Xu Wanwan obediently walked up to the man. When she saw that he was staring at her, her face turned slightly hot.
Li Jingran changed his sitting position and looked at Xu Wanwan. He said calmly, “This dress suits you very well.”
Xu Wans heart skipped a beat.
Was he... praising her
Xu Wanwan quickly thought about it and answered very seriously, “Its all thanks to Mister Li that I can become good-looking.”
Li Jingran lowered his eyes and chuckled.
This girl really knew how to suck up to him.
He cleared his throat and reverted to his usual serious look. “I called you here because I have something to discuss with you.”
Xu Wanwan blinked and looked at the man in confusion.
What could it be that Li Jingran needed to discuss with her
“Ive prepared a banquet. On one hand, Ill announce your identity to the public, and on the other hand, Ill celebrate your passing as the top scorer in Science.”
After all, she was now a member of the Li family, so he had to let others know.
Xu Wanwan did not react for a moment and was still in shock. She said in a low voice, “Isnt this a little too grand...”
Li Jingran laughed. “Our Li family has a top scorer in Science, so we naturally have to hold a banquet to celebrate.”
Xu Wanwan swallowed her saliva and nodded obediently. “Okay, Ill listen to you.”
“Okay, but I plan to invite the Xu family over as well.” Li Jingran pondered for a moment and said, “By announcing your identity to the public this time, it will also cut off their desire to take you back.”
“What do you think”
Xu Wanwan bit her lip and couldnt make up her mind.
The banquet was a big event, so the Xu family would definitely be jealous. According to their nature, they might make a mess at the banquet.
“But if they make trouble at the banquet, they will cause trouble for you,” Xu Wanwan said hesitantly with her head lowered.
“They wont dare to cause trouble at my place.”
Xu Wanwan lowered her head and remained silent.
Li Jingran sighed inwardly when he saw the girls frightened look. His tone softened a little. “Dont worry, Im here for everything. Even if they want to cause trouble, Ill keep them company until the end.”
Xu Wanwan looked up and saw the mans serious expression. For some reason, she felt a sense of security.
She nodded. “Okay, then Ill listen to you.”
The girl replied to every word he said in a serious manner. The expression on her face was firm and cute.
Li Jingran was caught off guard. He pretended to be cold and nodded. “Okay, Go and rest. Ill prepare for the banquet.”
“You should rest early too.” Before Xu Wanwan left, she gave the man a sweet smile. “Good night.”
With that, she jogged out of the study room. Her back was youthful and energetic.
After watching Xu Wanwan leave, Li Jingran took a long time to snap back to his senses. He wanted to continue working, but how can he when his heart was not calm
The contract on the computer gradually blurred. He did not see a single word. His mind was filled with the image of Xu Wanwan smiling.
Li Jingran sighed deeply. He had no choice but to stop what he was doing as he pinched the space between his eyebrows.
Tsk, why was he always being biased toward this girl
The butler knocked on the door and came in. Seeing Li Jingrans absent-minded look, he couldnt help but remind him, “Director Li, you said you had something to tell me.”
Li Jingran came back to his senses and his face darkened. “Go prepare for the banquet.. Remember to invite the Xu family as well.”
