Lu Yuzhen’s big hands were on the steering wheel as he drove. The neon lights around them shone brightly in the night sky, reflecting on his face through the clear glass and making him look extremely attractive. Then, he answered nonchalantly, “Yes?”
“Chairman Lu, this assistant of mine, Qing, has been with me for some time and I’ve always treated her as my own sister. Now that she is at a suitable age for marriage, I would like to find a good man for her. Since you are always surrounded by rich men, can you recommend someone to me?” Shangguan Ruofu smiled sweetly as she asked.
Xia Micheng, who was ‘at a suitable age for marriage’, was speechless upon hearing that. Lu Yuzhen didn’t utter a word. He merely turned the steering wheel as the Rolls-Royce Phantom made a steady turn.
“Chairman Lu, I actually don’t care whether a man is rich or not, but this assistant of mine wants to find a rich man. She knows that her position is quite humble and those rich men might not harbor mutual feelings toward her. She even told me that she doesn’t mind being their mistress as long as she doesn’t have to worry about her livelihood… Oh, the more I explain, the more I think that my assistant has wrong views. As her boss, I think it’s my fault that I didn’t educate her well.” Shangguan Ruofu frowned guiltily.
Xia Micheng, who was sitting in the backseat, said nothing and rolled her eyes at Shangguan Ruofu. Since Shangguan Ruofu was a young girl, she grew up in the palace at Huaxi Province, so she knew about the hidden battles that women had. Right now, after she repeatedly emphasized that Xia Micheng was a vain and materialistic woman, the latter wondered how Lu Yuzhen thought of her.
Xia Micheng raised her head and looked at Lu Yuzhen. At that moment, he, too, lifted his handsome face slightly and looked at her through the rearview mirror. In that instant, their gazes met.
