Chapter 110: The Speechless Ning Meng
EndlessFantasy Translation EndlessFantasy Translation
Ning Meng was rather excited. He had understood this phrase? Did that mean he came from the same world as she did?
Once Huo Beichen came clean, wouldn’t Ning Men need to create a ‘Buddy from the same village! I’m so touched!’ atmosphere?
While she was imagining things, the housekeeper from Huo Manor sent her a text on WeChat: [Missus, the boss called to say that you felt like eating mantis shrimp. Would you like this dish to be sent over as a part of your dinner? Or would you like it to be sent over once it has been prepared?]
Shocked to the core, she opened her chatbox with Huo Beichen.
Ning Meng: [?]
Huo Beichen: [?]
Ning Meng: [????]
Huo Beichen: [What’s up?]
Ning Meng finally asked: [Did you understand that phrase?]
Huo Beichen: [You wanted to eat mantis shrimp, right?]
She had many question marks surrounding her at this point as she looked at her phone in a daze. She did not reply for a while, and soon, a text came from the other side.
Huo Beichen: [No?]
Ning Meng quickly replied: [Yes, that’s right.]
After giving it some thought, she was still not satisfied and continued to investigate.
Ning Meng: [Chick, you’re too beautiful.]
Huo Beichen immediately replied: [Chicken? Steamed chicken or chicken soup? The manor is better at making duck soup, though.]
Ning Meng: […]
Huo Beichen: [?]
Ning Meng: [Nevermind. Thanks.]
After chatting for a while, Huo Beichen became busy with work and did not reply to her text. Ning Meng tossed her phone to one side, her face changing a few times due to confusion.
Ning Meng held her head and drowned in her own world, not realizing that in the room, Lin Qingbei and his manager were stunned as they watched her go crazy.
The manager then asked, “Bei, Bei, Brother Bei. What’s going on with CEO Ning?”
Ling Qingbei figured that she was probably in a fight with her husband while chatting on WeChat. He held his chin and looked toward her. Her face was as fair as porcelain and she looked quite cute with her exquisite facial features narrowed together that way.
Ling Qingbei remembered that she had told him that she was not compatible with her husband. Their marriage was strictly business only and they would not interfere with each other’s lives, which was why she could go and do whatever she pleased.
While he was deep in thought, the manager announced, “Um, Brother Bei, CEO Ning, it’s 7 pm now.”
7 to 8 pm was the time that had been set for them to practice and go through rehearsals with the musicians.
Ning Meng and Ling Qingbei went to the preparation area of the stage to arrange the rehearsal setup with the musicians, but at this point, a staff interrupted them with an apologetic face. “I’m so sorry, Teacher Lin. The participant before you had some problems with the rehearsal and needed some time to fix things. Could you wait for a bit?”
Lin Qingbei was a newbie in the entertainment area, so he could not throw any trump cards to his advantage. There were only seven singers anyway, a few unforeseen circumstances was not a big deal.
Ning Meng, still in a good mood, replied, “Sure.”
A few people were waiting in the preparation area. Ning Meng checked the time on her phone. It had been half an hour. Ning Meng then asked the staff again, “Is everything OK?”
The staff replied with guilt lacing his voice, “No… Not yet.”
Ning Meng impatiently put the phone in her pocket. After another half an hour, it was already 8 pm sharp. Ning Meng furrowed her brows, sensing that something was not right. Every singer had one hour. They had been waiting for an entire hour and yet, things had still not been sorted out?
Just as she was about to approach the staff, Su Tiantian’s voice could be heard. “I do apologize, I was not feeling well earlier and had to rest for a while. Let’s go through this one more time.”
