Chapter 742: We’ll Talk; You Should Leave
Yang Ming sighed and picked up the phone. He didn’t hide it from Lin Zhiyun, because this matter needed to be faced in the end. There was no use at all to escape.
“Mengyan…” Yang Ming picked up the phone.
“Yang Ming, what are you doing?” Chen Mengyan’s tone sounded abnormally calm, but Yang Ming felt that it was unusual because it was too calm.
Logically, Chen Mengyan usually called him. Her tone was usually relaxed and even with a hint of coquetry, but today she wasn’t.
Yang Ming hesitated for a moment and decided to tell the truth, “I’m with Lin Zhiyun…”
Apparently, at the moment Yang Ming spoke, Lin Zhiyun’s hand which was holding his arm exerted abnormal force. Her nails dug into Yang Ming’s flesh. Yang Ming gently stroked Lin Zhiyun’s body and comforted her not to be nervous.
“Where?” Chen Mengyan continued to ask calmly.
“At Tavern Heaven on Earth.” Yang Ming replied truthfully.
“…” Chen Mengyan was silent.
Yang Ming’s mood was actually no better than Lin Zhiyun. He was just as tense. He didn’t know what Chen Mengyan would do. Although Chen Mengyan said that she accepted Lin Zhiyun, saying it and acting on it was not the same.
“Mengyan…” Yang Ming noticed that Chen Mengyan didn’t talk so he called her.
“Fortunately, you didn’t lie to me this time.” Chen Mengyan’s voice was bitter, but he heard that there was no dissatisfaction in her tone.
“I… won’t lie to you again…” Yang Ming quivered deep down in his heart. The damage to Chen Mengyan was quite large when I lied to her in the first place. However, what made Yang Ming wonder was how did Chen Mengyan know that he didn’t lie to her now? Could it be…?
Yang Ming suddenly started broke into a cold sweat. Did Chen Mengyan notice something?
“Okay, I believe you.” Chen Mengyan’s voice sounded a bit hollow, but he couldn’t hear any emotion. She paused and suddenly asked, “Which room are you in?”
“Ah?” Yang Ming was stunned.
“I’m downstairs. I’ve been waiting for you for an hour. I’m going up now. It shouldn’t affect you right?” Chen Mengyan said faintly.
“Mengyan… I…” Yang Ming was shocked. Chen Mengyan was actually downstairs, and she waited for an hour before calling him.
Listening to Chen Mengyan’s meaning, she must have seen Lin Zhiyun and him long ago, but didn’t bother them, and waited for some time quietly before calling.
“Why? It’s not over yet?” Chen Mengyan said with some self-deprecation, “I haven’t done it yet… I don’t know how long it would take, so then I’ll apologize. I won’t bother you. You can call me later…”
“Not that… Mengyan. I’m in 315… You… should come up.” Yang Ming forced himself to say.
“Okay, wait for me.” Chen Mengyan finished talking and hung up.
“She… already knew?” Lin Zhiyun looked at Yang Ming with some horror and was at a loss.
“En, Mengyan is downstairs and would come up soon.” Yang Ming said awkwardly.
“Then… what do I do… What should I do?” Lin Zhiyun hurriedly got up from the bed and quickly put her clothes on.
“It’s okay. Mengyan, she… is still very reasonable.” When he said this, Yang Ming himself had some guilty conscience. Who knows if Chen Mengyan would make a big fuss this time? But, listening to Chen Mengyan on the phone. The tone of her voice was a far cry from the past. Chen Mengyan is the kind of girl who shows her emotions on her face. She doesn’t know how to hide.
Just as Yang Ming and Lin Zhiyun finished dressing, the sound of knocking on the door sounded outside. From downstairs to upstairs, it would be fast with the elevator.
Lin Zhiyun subconsciously stood up from the bed. Yang Ming walked to the door of the room with difficulty and opened the door. He had a feeling that he was caught in bed which made him annoyed.
Chen Mengyan glanced at Yang Ming with a blank expression. She raised her eyes and looked inside the room. She saw Lin Zhiyun standing there, nervously clasping her hands. Mengyan didn’t talk to Yang Ming, but bypassed him directly and entered the room.
“I… we didn’t really do anything… That… Sorry, I… I’m going home…” Lin Zhiyun stuttered as she lowered her head and didn’t dare to look at Chen Mengyan.
“Since there is nothing, why do you say sorry to me?” Looking at Lin Zhiyun’s pitiful appearance, Chen Mengyan’s mouth showed a playful smile. It seems that she is still afraid of me. Chen Mengyan was then slightly relieved. Sometimes, a woman could condone a man to fool around outside, but it was difficult to tolerate her man with a lover outside.
The reason was actually very simple. A fling was nothing. Those young women or one-night stands did not threaten her status. But a lover was different. Lovers were likely to replace her and her status.
“I…” Lin Zhiyun didn’t know how to explain it. She was scared like she was stealing someone else’s things and was caught on the spot.
Seeing Lin Zhiyun’s appearance, Chen Mengyan couldn’t help it. Originally, she wanted to say a few strong words to let Lin Zhiyun know that she was Yang Ming’s true girlfriend. She also wanted to warn Lin Zhiyun to not have any idea of replacing her. Although Chen Mengyan also intended to accept her, some words still have to be said to clear things up. However, at the moment, there seemed to be no need to say these words.
Looking at Lin Zhiyun’s appearance, Chen Mengyan’s resentments were gone, but she became more annoyed with Yang Ming. Yang Ming had deceived another poor girl.
Chen Mengyan held Lin Zhiyun’s hand, and her tone became calm. “Come, don’t be afraid. Let’s sit down and talk.”
“I… I don’t need to sit. I’ll just stand…” Lin Zhiyun shook her head nervously.
Chen Mengyan frowned. Such a weak temper. Wouldn’t she always be bullied by Yang Ming? She glanced at Yang Ming and said, “What are you doing here?”
“Me? I…” Yang Ming was inexplicably confused by Chen Mengyan.
“You should leave. We’ll have a talk.” Chen Mengyan pointed at the door and said mercilessly.
Yang Ming looked at Chen Mengyan and looked at Lin Zhiyun, whose hands were held by Chen Mengyan. He couldn’t see any trace of anger from Chen Mengyan. He shook his head helplessly and walked out the door.
Yang Ming knew that Chen Mengyan must have something to say to Lin Zhiyun. If he was there, he would be in the way. Outside the door, Yang Ming gently closed the door. He took out a pack of cigarettes from his pocket. He took one out and put it in his mouth. A security guard in the Tavern Heaven on Earth rushed over and lit up Yang Ming’s cigarette.
Yang Ming exhaled a mouthful of cigarette smoke and looked at the closed door, feeling depressed. Chen Mengyan, what does she want to talk to Lin Zhiyun about? Yang Ming felt somewhat worried.
He was hesitant to use his special abilities to look at the situation inside, but he saw Shu Ya coming out of the elevator. The person who followed her was her agent, Xu Li.
“Eh? Yang Ming?” Shu Ya was stunned. Xu Li hadn’t seen Yang Ming yet, but Shu Ya saw him first. Shu Ya was very sensitive to Yang Ming. It was easy to find Yang Ming among a group of people, but Xu Li was not as sensitive. Xu Li only turned and saw Yang Ming when she heard Shu Ya calling Yang Ming’s name.
“Shu Ya, why did you come to the third floor?” Yang Ming was a bit baffled. The third floor has guest rooms. What is Shu Ya doing here?
Shu Ya appeared helpless as she said bitterly, “A friend came over from Hong Kong. He insisted on following me and staying here… He wanted to go up to see me, but I don’t want him to know where I stayed, so I could only come down…”
At this time, a door not far away opened. A young man about twenty years old came out and called Shu Ya directly, “Little Ya, I just heard you from the door of the room.”
Shu Ya saw Zhong Xiaotian coming over, and she couldn’t talk to Yang Ming anymore. She smiled apologetically and said to Yang Ming, “My father’s friend’s son, Zhong Xiaotian.”
Shu Ya introduced him in such a way because she also wanted to draw a line with Zhong Xiaotian so that Yang Ming wouldn’t misunderstand anything. This way, it seemed that Shu Ya also had no other choice. She couldn’t change the fact that he was a family friend.
Yang Ming glanced at Zhong Xiaotian, and from his eyes, Yang Ming knew that this guy was Shu Ya’s fan.
“He is…” When he saw a young man standing next to Shu Ya, Zhong Xiaotian asked while being slightly stunned.
“The organizer of the concert…” Shu Ya didn’t want to introduce more. She didn’t think it was necessary to talk too much with Zhong Xiaotian.
“Oh.” Zhong Xiaotian was relieved and nodded to Yang Ming. Then he said, “This gentleman, I’m a good friend with Miss Shu. I specially made this trip from Hong Kong to see her. Is it possible to arrange another day to talk about work again?”
Yang Ming didn’t want to bother about this so much, so he said, “I’m fine. You all can talk.”
Shu Ya lifted her right hand quietly and waved gently in front of her chest. She made a good-bye gesture to Yang Ming and walked with Xu Li to Zhong Xiaotian’s room.
Yang Ming looked at Shu Ya’s gestures somewhat stunned… This familiar gesture? Once upon a time, Su Ya liked to say goodbye to me like this when she had to leave me every day…
This woman is becoming more and more mysterious… Yang Ming couldn’t help but frown.
“The person who we just saw looks familiar…” Zhong Xiaotian said to himself as he walked, “It seems that I have seen him before.”
“Really?” Shu Ya didn’t care and simply replied. She didn’t think that Zhong Xiaotian had a chance to see Yang Ming.
“Forget it. Who cares about him? He isn’t an important person.” Zhong Xiaotian shook his head. Not thinking about it, he followed Shu Ya to Song Jiang, naturally wanting to cultivate more feelings with Shu Ya. How could he have time to care about others?
Shu Ya thought, You are not an important person. If it wasn’t for Uncle Zhong’s face, how would I find time to sit down and talk to you?
