Stealing Your Heart Chapter 138
She turned her head and saw Zong Jinghao standing behind her. She could not see his expression clearly against the light and could only peep at the unclear outline of his face.
The front desk took the card in Zong Jinghao’s hand, “Altogether, the total cost is 12,080.”
“Oh, so the car was driven by Sister-in-law.” Su Zhan booed aside while Lin Xinyan lowered her head, put her card back, and asked softly, “Are you going back?”
Before Zong Jinghao could answer, Su Zhan took the lead, “What time is it now? Is it too early to go back? Besides-” He pointed to Zong Jinghao and Lin Xinyan, “You still owe me a toast for your wedding. Instead of choosing a date to make it up to me, let’s do it today.”
Zong Jinghao did not object. His eyes seemed to be covered with dust, and they looked elusive.
Lin Xinyan just felt embarrassed, especially at how Su Zhan addressed her. It sounded very awkward.
“I’m not going. You all can go.” Lin Xinyan turned to leave and Zong Jinghao grabbed her wrist, “Wait for me.”
Lin Xinyan wanted to break away from his hand, but he held it too tightly, and she could not break away.
At this time, the front desk had settled the bill and handed over the card and the invoice, “A total consumption cost of 12,080.”
Zong Jinghao put them in his wallet and said lightly, “Let’s go.”
Su Zhan did not plan to let them go. He stopped in front of them, “If you don’t buy me a drink today, I’ll never let you go.”
Su Zhan raised his head and looked as if he owned the path and the entire place.
Qin Ya who was standing behind, stepped back quietly and tried to leave. From the mirror reflection, Su Zhan could see the woman behind him trying to leave secretly.
Su Zhan saw that she came with Lin Xinyan just now, which meant that they knew each other. He turned around and grabbed her, “Don’t go.”
Qin Ya was startled and looked at him in horror.
“Don’t be afraid. Are you my sister-in-law’s friend?” Su Zhan grinned, and his white teeth were particularly dazzling in the light.
Qin Ya glanced at Lin Xinyan and nodded, “I’m Ms. Lin’s assistant.”
“Oh, what do you all do?”
“Coincidentally, I want to order a set of tailored clothes.”
“Well, we’ll open our store the day after tomorrow, and we welcome you to our store.” Qin Ya answered eloquently.
Su Zhan blinked, “You all have set up a store, and it’ll open the day after tomorrow?”
Qin Ya nodded.
Su Zhan hugged Shen Peichuan who was watching the excitement at the side, and tugged at his neck, “Sister-in-law’s store is opening soon. We should definitely go there, and you must make time to go and give your support.”
“Yeah.” Shen Peichuan answered.
He felt that although Zong Jinghao and Lin Xinyan were divorced, they had children together. Their remarriage was just a matter of time. Judging from Zong Jinghao’s attitude, he seemed to care about her a lot.
Giving their support is a must. No matter what happened, they must make time to go there.
Su Zhan smiled, displaying his red lips and white teeth, “Sister-in-law, if you don’t make it up to us regarding the wedding toast, I won’t let you leave.”
He acted shamelessly.
Lin Xinyan frowned.
She looked at Zong Jinghao, hoping that he could reprimand his friend.
And he could stop him from continuing to make things difficult for her.
What wedding toast?
What was there to celebrate?
Zong Jinghao pretended not to see while holding her hand and playing with it.
He did not reject Su Zhan’s mention of wedding celebration.
When he married Lin Xinyan, there was nothing, and he did not introduce her to his good friends.
Inexplicably, he was pleased to hear Su Zhan call her Sister-in-law.
He did not want to introduce Lin Xinyan to them in the past because he was not interested in her.
That marriage was not what he wanted.
But it was different now. He wanted to keep this marriage and this woman.
Also, he was willing to give her official status openly.
Su Zhan and Shen Peichuan were his good friends.
It was good to let them know about her.
“If Sister-in-law is busy, please go first. Chuan and I can go drinking with this young lady.” Su Zhan grabbed Qin Ya’s arm and took her to leave with him.
“Ms. Lin.” Qin Ya shouted at Lin Xinyan in a panic.
“Wait a minute.” Lin Xinyan had no choice and was forced to agree.
“Let her go.”
Su Zhan did it on purpose. The woman that Zong Jinghao admired probably would not have a very bad character. She definitely would not stay indifferent and watch her assistant being taken away.
It turned out that he was right.
He let go of Qin Ya.
She continuously stepped two steps back and pulled away from him.
It was as if Su Zhan was a terrifying monster.
“Let’s go. I’ll decide on the place, and I’ll treat you all today.” Su Zhan was in a good mood, and Shen Peichuan dampened the enthusiasm of him, “Oh, did the miser decide to be generous today?”
As long as Zong Jinghao was there, he never paid.
Su Zhan glared at him, “Don’t embarrass me in front of beautiful women. I’m actually very generous.”
Shen Peichuan smiled and got into his car.
“You’ll get into my car.” Su Zhan beckoned Qin Ya.
Qin Ya waved her hand quickly, “No, no, you all can go. I won’t be joining.”
“I won’t bite. What are you afraid of?” Su Zhan smiled.
Qin Ya still refused, “I have something else to do.”
She found an excuse casually.
After speaking, she turned around to leave. She told Lin Xinyan, “Ms. Lin, I’ll leave first.”
Lin Xinyan answered, “Be careful.”
Qin Ya nodded, and when she walked to the side of the road, she realized that this place was rather remote with no taxis passing by. She usually came here by car and went back by driving.
Her car was given to Ellen. What should she do now?
“Let’s go, there isn’t a taxi for you here.” Su Zhan parked the car beside her.
Qin Ya wanted to find Lin Xinyan, but she was already in Zong Jinghao’s car.
“You don’t want to disturb the couple, do you?”
“Come on, I’ll send you there.”
Qin Ya stood still for some time, “Um, it’s okay.”
“Are you sure?”
Qin Ya said with certainty.
She was not blind, and it was obvious that they were not ordinary people, and she would not dare to provoke such people easily.
Shen Peichuan looked very honest, but Su Zhan made people feel that he was a playboy.
He was such a glib talker, and she didn’t want to have anything to do with such a person.
After being rejected several times, Su Zhan’s enthusiasm was extinguished.
He wound up the window and looked at Qin Ya again.
This woman was so careful and that made her interesting.
He was not a bad guy.
Why must she be wary of him like he was a thief?
After the cars drove far away, Qin Ya had no choice but to call Ellen and ask her to pick her up.
The place was also chosen by Su Zhan, which was a high-end bar.
This was the time when the place got busy. The colorful nightlife had just begun.
The space on the second floor was spacious and had a good view. Standing upstairs, one could see the entire bar, especially the dance floor in the lobby on the first floor. Men, women, colorful lights, loud music and dance, and all were uninhibited.
Su Zhan stood in front of the railing on the second floor with a wine glass in his hand and dangled his legs, looking like an idling fool.
Shen Peichuan had long been accustomed to his behavior and did not feel that it was weird.
“Control yourself.” He reminded Su Zhan.
Lin Xinyan was here today.
Su Zhan was also surprised that he seemed to have gone too far, so he quickly sat down and put away his slouchy attitude, “Sister-in-law, I have introduced myself last time, so you should know me already?”
Lin Xinyan stretched out her hand to shift the hair that was blocking her ears, so as to hide her embarrassment for how he addressed her, “Yes, I know.”
“This is Shen Peichuan.” Su Zhan smiled, putting his arms on Shen Peichuan’s shoulders, “He has the same kind of relationship as Jinghao and me.”
Shen Peichuan elbowed him, “Don’t I have a mouth? Do I need you to speak for me?”
“I’m afraid that you can’t explain clearly. You always blushed when you talked to girls during your university days—pain—”
“Does it hurt? I don’t think so.” Shen Peichuan pressed hard on Su Zhan. He was fit and trained regularly, while Su Zhan was delicate. How could he withstand such a strong squeeze?
It was so painful that he frowned.
Lin Xinyan could tell that even though they fought around, they had a good relationship.
She went closer to Zong Jinghao and whispered, “I’ll go to the bathroom.”
Zong Jinghao let go of her hand and gave a faint hum.
Lin Xinyan got up and left. She followed the signs to find the location of the bathroom.
Unfortunately, just when she entered, someone came out and they bumped into each other at the door.
