Chapter 145: The Villainess 28
Upon hearing Jian Ning’s revelation, Xia Beibei subconsciously glanced at Lan Xiaowu. At that moment, Lan Xiaowu’s face showed no particular expression.
Seeing this, Xia Beibei’s eyes flickered. She pretended to be indifferent as she said, “Captain Shen is a good person, right? Hmm, the place he’s taking you for dinner must be fancy, too, right? If he’s being stingy and doesn’t take you to a nice place, let me handle him when you come back!”
Upon hearing Xia Beibei’s words, Lan Xiaowu’s expression turned somewhat awkward. She stammered and mentioned the name of a restaurant, one of the top-notch establishments in the capital city.
In reality, Lan Xiaowu only regarded Shen Linfeng as a regular friend. She had agreed to his invitation to escape Mu Chen’s persistent pursuit.
Although Lan Xiaowu hadn’t been to that restaurant, she had heard of it. After all, she wasn’t used to going to such high-end places.
“Oh, so that’s the place!”
At this moment, Xia Beibei quietly noted the restaurant’s name and smiled at Lan Xiaowu.
“Perfect! I have a few new sets of clothes in my wardrobe, all the latest in fashion, and I haven’t even worn them. I’ll give them all to you. Remember to dress up nicely when you go!”
Initially, Lan Xiaowu wanted to refuse Xia Beibei’s “kindness,” but she couldn’t resist Xia Beibei’s persuasive tactics. In the end, she accepted the clothes and left.
After Lan Xiaowu and Jian Ning left, Xia Beibei immediately called Yan Yicheng.
“Lin Yixuan, there’s something I need to tell you…”
Over the phone, Xia Beibei briefly explained Lan Xiaowu’s situation and sighed while lying on her bed, “The plot is getting a bit chaotic now. I’ve decided to take the initiative. What do you think?”
Upon hearing that Xia Beibei wanted to take the initiative, Yan Yicheng, on the other end of the phone, became interested, “What do you plan to do?”
Xia Beibei explained her plan to Yan Yicheng and then eagerly asked his opinion, “What do you think of my idea?”
After hearing her plan, Yan Yicheng couldn’t help but nod.
“Not bad. Just follow your thoughts! You… Hmm, you do have the potential to play the antagonist. Keep it up!”
Xia Beibei: …
Is he praising her? Right? Is it?
No, you wanted to say I’m full of bad intentions, right? Is that correct?
After hanging up, Xia Beibei pouted while looking at her mobile phone. She then took a space card from one of her drawers and used it to send a message to Mu Chen…
It was the weekend, with clear skies and high clouds.
After much hesitation, Lan Xiaowu, to show respect to others, changed into the high-end suit given to her by Xia Beibei. Then, following the address provided by Shen Linfeng, she arrived at the high-end restaurant.
“Welcome, madam. Do you have a reservation?”
After thinking for a moment, Lan Xiaowu reported the private room number.
“Oh, this way, please!”
Upon hearing Lan Xiaowu ‘s words, the beautiful waitress’s eyes flashed as she led her to the door of an upstairs private room.
Lan Xiaowu had never been to such a luxurious restaurant before. She pushed the door open and saw a figure sitting at the dining table with their back facing her.
Lan Xiaowu subconsciously called out, and the figure slowly turned around, revealing an extremely handsome face.
Seeing Mu Chen’s face, Lan Xiaowu exclaimed in surprise.
“Are you disappointed to see me?”
Mu Chen smiled and stood up.
“Shen Linfeng has always been unreliable, but it doesn’t matter. Since you’re here, let’s have a meal together!”
Every male lead has that kind of domineering CEO character, and Mu Chen is no exception.
Upon hearing Mu Chen’s words, Lan Xiaowu shook her head slightly. “Forget it; I won’t eat. I’m leaving!”
As she spoke, she turned around and walked towards the door.
Mu Chen quickly caught up and grabbed her wrist at the private room entrance. Then, he stepped to the side and forcefully pressed her against the wall.
Lan Xiaowu leaned against the wall in the corridor, looking at the man so close to her, and her expression immediately became flustered.
“Mu Chen, what are you doing? Let go of me! This is a public place, don’t mess around!”
“What am I messing around with?”
Mu Chen raised an eyebrow and smiled. “Have I done anything yet? Did you want me to mess around with you?”
As he spoke, Mu Chen slowly approached Lan Xiaowu’s cheek. In fact, he just liked to see her looking helpless and frustrated. It was adorable.
“Wearing such a beautiful outfit today, is it to impress Shen Linfeng?”
Mu Chen’s breath gradually invaded Lan Xiaowu’s nerves; his gaze was seductive and dangerous.
A cold and indifferent female voice suddenly sounded behind them at that moment.
“What are you two doing?”
Xia Beibei, who was prepared in advance, appeared with a cold face behind the two. The timing was just right!
At this moment, Xia Beibei had to thank countless brainless idol dramas for the inspiration they gave her–
That’s right! To be a vicious supporting female character, one must be dedicated like this!
The atmosphere in the corridor suddenly turned somewhat strange.
Upon hearing Xia Beibei’s voice, Mu Chen’s movements froze, and Lan Xiaowu took the opportunity to struggle out from under him. Looking flustered, she hurriedly walked in front of Xia Beibei and explained, “Vice Captain, please listen to me. It’s not…”
A loud slap landed on Lan Xiaowu’s face. Since Xia Beibei used seven-tenths of her strength, Lan Xiaowu’s half-face immediately swelled up and turned red.
This slap left Lan Xiaowu completely stunned.
“Gu Churong, have you gone crazy?”
Seeing Xia Beibei raise her hand again to hit Lan Xiaowu, Mu Chen immediately grabbed her wrist.
“Am I crazy? The whole empire knows you’re engaged to me, and now you’re fooling around with my subordinate here? Mu Chen, what do you take me, Gu Churong, for? And you!”
Xia Beibei turned her head and looked at Lan Xiaowu with fierce eyes. “I personally promoted you! I, Gu Churong, was truly blind to let a wolf in! You, a despicable person, don’t deserve to stay in the Fourth Legion!”
“Vice Commander, I…”
Lan Xiaowu couldn’t care about the pain on her face and wanted to explain, but Xia Beibei didn’t give her a chance at all.
“You look pretty today, don’t you? The clothes were also given to you by me. Are you using the clothes I gave you to seduce my fiancé? Well, I don’t want to give you the clothes now. Take them off!”
Take off the clothes?
Upon hearing Xia Beibei’s unreasonable demand, Lan Xiaowu was dumbfounded. Meanwhile, Mu Chen immediately let go of Xia Beibei and reached out to grab Lan Xiaowu beside him. “Xiaowu, let’s go! She’s just crazy, don’t mind her!”
Mu Chen immediately pulled Lan Xiaowu and left. Perhaps because she was shocked by Xia Beibei’s sudden revelation, Lan Xiaowu remained stunned and followed Mu Chen, leaving like that!
Xia Beibei muttered lowly behind the two, then turned around and walked to the entrance of another private room.
She opened the door and found a table full of delicious food already prepared inside.
“Is it done?”
Upon hearing footsteps, Yan Yicheng looked up and glanced at Xia Beibei.
“Of course! How could this baby fail when taking action?” Xia Beibei no longer had the furious appearance from earlier. She happily sat down across from Yan Yicheng. There were so many delicious dishes that she couldn’t even decide where to start.
