Chapter 84: The Survival Guide of the Rich and Powerful Lady
“You need to have a strong heart if you want to be with someone like him. You can’t fall for him, but you also have to give everything you have. In order to be with someone like Aiden, do you think it’s enough for him to have feelings for you? Even if the two of you are exclusively dating, his family and the women surrounding him will be your obstacles.
That’s why I told you that you have to be circuitous when you speak and do something. You need to know how to be secretive and reserved. If you want to be with a man as excellent as Aiden, from this day on, you need to control your emotions. Do you understand what I’m saying?”
Zhong Qianqian bit her lip. “Okay.”
“Even if he answers this call, you have to remain calm. I can tell that he has feelings for you, so it’s not just in your head. That’s why even if Zhong Nuannuan really did talk bad about you in front of him, you still need to remain confident! You have to make him think that Zhong Nuannuan is a scheming woman so that he will get close to you while also distancing himself from that woman. Do you understand?”
“Yeah, I understand. Mom, I will definitely win over Aiden’s heart.” Zhong Qianqian was confident.
“Alright, call him. Put him on speaker so that I can listen to what he says and analyze his words for you.”
Zhong Qianqian took a deep breath. She used Aunty Zhao’s phone to call Aiden.
After one ring, someone picked up the phone.
At that moment, Zhong Qianqian’s face turned white.
In the next second, her face turned even paler after hearing the voice on the other end of the phone.
“Hello. Who’s this?”
A woman’s sweet-sounding voice spoke from the other end of the phone. Even though there was a lot of noise from the other end, Zhong Qianqian could still tell that the voice belonged to a young and beautiful woman.
Zhong Qianqian’s eyes immediately turned red. She bit her lip, feeling very wronged.
Even though she had always acted evil in front of Zhong Nuanuan, she was very much a coward when faced with other people.
What more if she was dealing with someone like Aiden who had a social status that was eighty times of hers. She knew that the women around him would not be too bad either. Zhong Qianqian did not dare to say anything even though the other party kept repeating the word ‘hello’.
She felt ashamed and resentful, like she had just caught someone in the act of adultery. At the same time, she also felt like she was the one who was being caught in the act.
Jiang Shuwan noticed that her daughter was not talking. She took her own phone out and wrote a few words on it. ‘Get him on the phone. He’s not married yet, what are you afraid of?’
“Hello? Who is this? I’m hanging up if you’re not going to talk.”
The other party was getting frustrated after not hearing a reply.
“I’m sorry. I-I must have called the wrong number.” Zhong Qianqian’s confidence wavered after hearing the sweet voice of this mysterious woman. She felt that she could not continue this anymore. She was ready to hang up.
Eventually, the other party asked, “Are you looking for Brother Aiden?”
Zhong Qianqian, “…”
Brother Aiden! It seemed like this woman had an intimate relationship with Aiden.
Zhong Qianqian forced out a smile that looked uglier than her usual crying face. “Oh, this is Aiden’s phone? I thought I had called the wrong number.”
“Who are you? How did you get his number? Why are you looking for him?”
