Chapter 62: Haute Couture Placed Aside
“It’s alright, I can tell that Miss Nuannuan is a straightforward person. I like that, hahahaha…”
The moment Aiden finished his sentence, Zhong Qianqian’s expression darkened even more.
She felt that no matter where she went, as long as Zhong Nuannuan was present, men would only have eyes for the latter.
“Alright, let’s go check out the next shop. Aiden, since you’re the General Manager of Tianheng Holdings, I’m sure you have insight on the bestselling products of each brand here?”
“Tianheng Holdings has a total of 75 malls around the world, and each mall is filled with different stores; the same goes for each brand’s bestselling product as it differs according to the preferences of people in different countries. I’m from headquarters, so I’m still not very familiar with the bestselling products of each brand here. However, my subordinate here, Mr. Wu Jingcheng, the General Manager of Jiang District’s Tianheng Holdings, is extremely familiar with the operations of the stores here. If Madam and my two Miss Zhongs don’t mind, I can help you with your shopping bags, while Mr. Wu can be your shopping guide. How does that sound?”
Once Wu Jingcheng heard his big boss’ suggestion of being a personal tour guide, he immediately straightened his back and perked up. “Hello, Madam Jiang, Miss Zhong, I’m the General Manager of Jiang District’s Tianheng Holdings. Happy to be at your service today.”
At this moment, Jiang Shuwen and Zhong Qianqian’s eyes widened in shock. Without even bothering about Wu Jingcheng’s presence beside them, they latched onto the few words that had just come out of Aiden’s mouth.
“You… you’re the General Manager of Tianheng Holdings’ headquarters?
Zhong Qianqian’s voice came out like a frog’s croak. Although she had wanted to portray her feminine and graceful ladylike temperament by speaking gently, her voice was betrayed by the excitement building up in her chest.
As for Wu Jingcheng, he was completely ignored by the mother and daughter duo.
It was just that Aiden’s position was so powerful. It was powerful to the point that they could no longer maintain their proper etiquette.
Aiden replied with a polite smile. “Our mall in Jiang District had just opened recently, so I’m only here temporarily to overlook things.”
“Then… How long are you planning to stay here?” Zhong Qianqian asked with a burning blush across her face.
“It’s still uncertain at the moment, but I’ll stay for some time if I get used to the customs and culture. Who knows, I might consider settling here permanently if I get too comfortable.”
His response seemed almost like a pass issued directly to Zhong Qianqian, causing her heart to flutter impatiently. After all, she had the personality of a proud peacock, so it was only natural for her to assume that Aiden was implying that he was keen on developing a relationship with her. If things worked out between them, Aiden would even stay and settle down with her.
“Real… Really?” Zhong Qianqian became tongue-tied amidst the excitement.
Aiden had deep, penetrating eyes that were so blue they seemed to be able to quench all the starlight in the universe, there was a sparkle to them so bright that one would find it impossible to break his gaze.
Aside from the narcissistic Zhong Qianqian, even passersby noticed that the Vice President of Tianheng Holdings, the very General Manager of Tianheng Holdings, was blatantly sending hints to a Chinese lady who was not exactly considered beautiful.
The General Manager always had countless beauties surrounding him. When did he become blind?
Just as Zhong Qianqian had immersed herself in her daydream, Aiden suddenly turned to Zhong Nuannuan, who was standing beside her. Unable to hide his flattery tone, he asked eagerly, “So, I was wondering if Miss Zhong had some time on her hand? I’m still new to this town and I don’t have any friends around. If you’re free, dare I ask if Miss Zhong would like to meet for tea?”
Zhong Qianqian, who was still in her dream, seemed to have suddenly been splashed with a large bucket of ice water, and her heart went cold.
