616 She Failed To Slip Away

    Lin Yuetong was also excited when he saw Pei Yucheng. However, he had no hope of talking to someone like Pei Yucheng unless someone were to introduce him.

    He had attended a function with Pei Yucheng before, and that was enough for him to boast.

    Today, all he aimed was to make his presence known to Pei Yucheng.

    Yang Baixiong may not have a good reputation in the business world, but he was well-known. In addition, he had just bid for a project with the JM Corporation, so he had an excuse for a conversation.

    He rehearsed mentally for some time before mustering the courage to approach Pei Yucheng.

    Yang Baixiong beamed brightly as his belly was protruding. "Hi, President Pei. I'm Yang Baixiong, the boss of Achieve International Media. Recently, we have been bidding for a project of your company!"

    When Pei Yucheng's eyes darted to Yang Baixiong, they gleamed like glaciers. However, this gleam vanished swiftly as though it had been an illusion.

    That was sufficient to make Yang Baixiong shudder hard.

    What was going on?

    Why did Pei Yucheng look so terrifying?

    "President Yang, it's nice to meet you." Pei Yucheng managed a tiny smile.

    Yang Baixiong snapped to his senses when he heard Pei Yucheng.

    His eyes must have been playing tricks on him...

    Yang Baixiong had no idea that Pei Yucheng was so approachable. He had incredibly responded to him. He was filled with hope and delight as he began to rattle on about the project.

    "President Pei, I'm not trying to boast, but Achieve International Media is the top in the field. If you hand the project to my company, we will definitely make sure everything is perfect..."

    Lin Yuetong observed how Yang Baixiong was chatting with Pei Yucheng and became even more adamant about cementing the marriage.

    He would force Lin Yan to apologize and coax Yang Baixiong later!

    Pei Yucheng merely sat quietly as he listened, looking expressionless.

    Pei Nanxu continued to drink his tea while Lin Yan was wiping her perspiration off her face.

    Pei Nanxu seemed to have informed Pei Yucheng about the incident earlier on, yet there wasn't any indication that Pei Yucheng was seething with fury.

    Could this be the calm before the storm?

    Perhaps she was overthinking. A man like Pei Yucheng must have encountered storms of all kinds. Why would he flare up over such a tiny matter?

    In the room, everyone was occupied with their own thoughts.

    "President Pei, in that case, I shall not disturb you any longer. I hope that we can work with you and clinch that project! I didn't manage to prepare anything today. If there is a chance, I would like to invite you to my place and welcome you properly..." Yang Baixiong was already hinting at an opportunity to meet Pei Yucheng privately.

    He knew that it was a great luck for a man like him to be able to speak to Pei Yucheng. He was worried that he might annoy the man if he stayed too long, so he ended the conversation tactfully.

    Cai Hongan and a few other respected presidents struck up a careful conversation with Pei Yucheng. No one else dared to approach Pei Yucheng unless Cai Hongan introduced them.

    Lin Yan tried to diminish her presence and started slowly inching away stealthily.

    Pei Yucheng was busy and he hadn't seemed to notice her.

    Minutes later, Lin Yan succeeded in putting some distance between them.

    Yes! Success was within her reach!

    Just when she thought that she could slip away without anyone noticing her, Pei Yucheng slumped back lazily on the back of the couch and snuffed out the end of his cigarette. His free hand casually landed on... Lin Yan's thigh.

    Lin Yan was paralyzed by shock!
