Chapter 157: The Girl He Likes
EndlessFantasy Translation EndlessFantasy Translation
It was dark outside.
The lights were turned on in the program center, but at this moment, the lights seemed to only focus on these two clusters of diamonds. Ning Meng felt as though she was about to go blind looking at these diamonds. She froze, looking down at the present. Her first instinct was not to check how much they were worth, instead, she subconsciously took out her phone in a rush and looked for the texts that Qi Shan had sent her the other day.
Qi Shan: [By the way, do you want to know what kind of gift the boss bought for her? A pair of diamond earrings! Each diamond is worth three carats and they’re from Cartier! They’re worth 2.19 million!]
Diamond earrings… Worth 2.19 million…
Ning Meng tensed up and swallowed her saliva. She continued to scroll and read on.
Qi Shan: [I’ve never seen the boss adore a girl like this. He was quite angry today but his anger disappeared when I told him to buy a gift for the girl he likes!]
Her line of sight focused on “the girl he likes”, and a thought then came to her mind…
To confirm her speculations, she sent Qi Shan a text through private chat: [Your boss bought a pair of diamond earrings?]
Qi Shan was on his way over to The Club. He felt wronged and had no one to vent to, so when he saw her text, he sent a voice note over. “Of course! Why would he buy a pair for ?”
Ning Meng looked at the present in her hands and asked: [Who is the girl that he likes?]
Qi Shan sent another voice note over. “Whoever it is, it’s not you. I’m telling you, all these years, this is the first time I’ve seen boss courting a girl so seriously.”
Zhen Shanmei had also mentioned that he had cheated on her but she had not asked for details. She thought to this point and headed into the resting room. She wanted to ask for clarification from Zhen Shanmei. However, when she went into the room, she did not expect a tense and intimidating atmosphere to be awaiting her.
Su Tiantian had a regretful expression plastered all over her face as she stood in front of Zhen Shanmei. “It really was not on purpose. I’m sorry, I really do apologize…”
Zhen Shanmei’s exquisite face was filled with indignance. Her hand was wiping off the blood that was faintly oozing out of her earlobe. She then scoffed in a low voice, “If there was any point of apologizing, why do we even need policemen in the first place?!”
Su Tiantian’s eyes were flushed red, the tears that were pooling in her eyes threatening to roll down her cheeks. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry… What if you pull my earrings off too, then…”
Zhen Shanmei was infuriated and raised her hand. “Did you think I wouldn’t dare to do that?”
As she said this, Li Haojie snapped. “Enough!”
Li Haojie stood up and exclaimed in disdain, “Tian Tian only accidentally scraped your ears, do you need to force people to behave this way?”
Zhen Shanmei lowered her hand. “What does this have to do with you?”
Su Tiantian lowered her head, and by now, her tears were falling. She looked like a delicate frail girl who had just been bullied and humiliated. “I’m sorry, Miss Zhen. You can do what you like about this matter. It was my fault for not being careful…”
The director, who had been watching from the side, could not resist helping her and spoke up as well. “Miss Zhen, this is an unforeseen circumstance. No one wished for this to happen…”
Zhen Shanmei furiously clenched her fists. When she had walked in, Su Tiantian had boldly walked toward her and flipped her hair so that it got caught in her earrings. She had then forcefully pulled it herself.
Su Tiantian had done all these things on purpose and yet, everyone else thought that she was innocent!
Li Haojie then taunted her in an insolent tone. “It’s just the ear that’s hurt, right? So what if you can’t wear your earrings? If you’re not able to sing well, there’s no point for you to even wear the most beautiful pair of earrings!”
