Chapter 314 A Misunderstanding (1)
Then, the lady went up to the security guard and said to him: “Don’t let her in.” But before she stepped into the building, the guard stopped her as well and asked: “Miss, what are you doing here?”
“I need to talk with my dear Jingyan, of course.” She said in a soft voice. And Jing Yang rolled her eyes after hearing what she said.
“Do you have an appointment?”
The lady widened her eyes. She said: “I never need to make an appointment.”
The guard said helplessly: “Then you must call Director Ye, or I can’t let you in.”
“Why are you so stubborn!” The lady said angrily. And the guard smiled apologetically and stopped her way.
Jing laughed inwardly after seeing what happened. She thought the lady was someone important, but turned out, she also couldn’t get into the building.
The guard looked at the time and said politely: “Director Ye will get off work in another five minutes, and then he will come out. So, please stay here and wait for him.”
“I will make Jingyan fire you.” The lady said angrily, and stood beside the entrance.
Jing was wearing a pair of sunglasses and no one could see her eyes, but the smile that curved her lips betrayed her feelings at that moment.
A few minutes later, Yehuang Group’s staff got off work and walked out of the building. They all laughed when they saw the two ladies waiting at the entrance.
These two women are not average people. They do have a little bit fame, so they couldn’t allow themselves to be laughed at. That’s why they moved further away from the entrance to avoid being noticed. But they were staring at the entrance closely.
Ten minutes had passed, a tall man appeared in their view. The lady recognized Jingyan in an instant and she rushed into Jingyan’s arms and shouted: “Jingyan, you are finally here!”
Jingyan was frightened. He pushed the woman away and looked at her, and found she was Yuwei Tang, a very annoying woman in Tang Family.
Jingyan said seriously: “Stand still! Why are you here?”
Yuwei grabbed Jingyan’s arm and said: “I will take you out for dinner. On my birthday, you promised that you will dine with me.”
“When did I promise that?” Jingyan was confused.
“Yes you did! Yes you did! You have to go out with me tonight!” Yuwei grabbed Jingyan’s arm tightly.
“Please let me go.” Jingyan didn’t know what to do. He had never met anyone who is so cheeky.
“No! You will run away!”
Jing also went up to Jingyan and said: “Director Ye…..”
Jingyan looked at her coldly and said: “What are you doing here? You want to create more trouble for me?”
Jing’s eyes brimmed with tears. She said: “Director Ye. I’m so sorry for what happened. I shouldn’t have done that! Please forgive me!”
Jingyan snorted. “You think it’s enough for me to forgive you simply by offering an apology?”
Tears were rolling down Jing’s cheeks. She said: “Director Ye. I was wrong. I didn’t know what was I doing. Please!”
Jingyan asked coldly: “Tell me, how did you find me?”
Jing felt nervous suddenly, but her expression betrayed nothing of her thoughts. After all, she is an actress, and she knows how to manage her expressions.
“Director Ye, you may find this hard to believe, but I met you by chance earlier. I wasn’t following you. They were all coincidences! Some paparazzo took these pictures when they were only trying to take pictures of me. They wanted me to pay them for the pictures, but I didn’t, and that’s why they put these pictures online. I didn’t expect it would cause so much trouble. I’m so sorry.” Jing said and bowed deeply to Jingyan. There were both lies and truths in her words.
Jingyan looked at her coldly and said: “These were just coincidences? Are you sure?”
“Yes. If you don’t believe me, you can investigate. I will never dare to lie to you.”
Yuwei wore a contemptuous expression and said: “You are an actress. And you are always acting! Jingyan, don’t believe her. It was must her scheme! She let these things happen on purpose.”
At that time, a jeep drove towards them from Jingyan’s back. The person in the car was none other than Yiyao.
Yiyao could see Jingyan from a far distance, and what made her uncomfortable was that another woman was holding his arm.
Yiyao finally believed what her father said was right. She had come to see Jingyan twice, and every time she came, she could see Jingyan with another woman. The evidence couldn’t be more clear. Jingyan was having affairs with other women.
“Damn! What a jerk! I thought we wronged him last time!” Azure Dragon said angrily. His positive impression about Jingyan was totally changed.
Yiyao clenched her teeth. She didn’t say anything, because she knew what Azure Dragon said was right.
“Do you still want to talk to him?” Azure Dragon noticed Yiyao’s face darkened.
“We traveled a long way. Of course I need to say something to him. Pull over.”
Azure Dragon stepped on the brake and stopped the car. Yiyao got off the car and leaned against the door. She looked at Jingyan for another minute and finally said: “Director Ye, you are so lucky. You have so many women.”
Jingyan shuddered after hearing her voice. He turned around quickly, and found the woman he had been thinking about was standing behind him. The sun was setting behind her. She was dressed in a camouflage uniform, a pair of black boots, and she had a thin belt around her slender waist.
A smile curved Jingyan’s lips. He broke away from Yuwei and went up to Yiyao. He said excitedly: “You are back! When did you come back? Are you injured? What happened to your face?”
Yiyao’s anger only boiled up after hearing his questions. She thought Jingyan was only acting to be worried. He was just having so much fun with another woman! Why is he so fake! She thought.
“Don’t worry. I’m not dead. It seems you are rather busy. I’ll leave you to your business.” Yiyao forced a smile on her face and turned around, but Jingyan pulled her into his arms suddenly.
Chapter 314 A Misunderstanding (2)
“Don’t leave me!” Jingyan held her tightly in his arms, as if she would fly away the moment he released her. “I miss you. I miss you so badly.”
Jingyan knew she was angry with him, but that only meant she cares about him. And Jingyan was filled with joy when he thought this.
Yiyao was furious. She broke away from him and stared at him. Her eyes were cold and indifferent. She said: “Director Ye, why would you miss me? When you have so many beautiful girls to take care of you?” Her voice was obviously tinged with jealousy, but she didn’t realize that.
“Yiyao, I swear! There is nothing going on between me and them.”
Yuwei Tang was so shocked when she saw Jingyan hugging another woman. When she recovered from her shock, she went up to Jingyan and got hold of his arm. She asked:”Jingyan, who is this big sister?”
Jingyan withdrew his arm and said seriously: “Miss Tang! Please behave yourself! I barely know you!”
Yuwei’s eyes brimmed with tears. She said: “Jingyan, why are you so mean to me all of a sudden?”
Yiyao snorted. She said coldly: “Who is this beautiful girl?”
“I am Jingyan’s future wife. Who are you?”
“Shut the fuck up!” Jingyan shouted at Yuwei. He found Yuwei’s shamelessness appalling. He took hold of Yiyao’s hand and said: “Yiyiao is the only woman I want to marry!”
Yuwei’s eyes widened in disbelief. “Jingyan, what are you talking about? Why would you marry this woman? She is ugly and……”
Yuwei checked herself when she noticed Yiyao was glaring at her. Yiyao’s eyes were murderous, and Yuwei felt a shudder was sent down her spine. She stood behind Jingyan and said in a soft voice: “Jingyan, she is so mean!”
Jingyan was seized by a desire to kill her. “Miss Tang, please leave here, right now.” He managed to refrain his anger.
Yuwei is a very spoiled girl. She is getting used to give orders, and she was never ordered by anyone before. So she said smilingly: “I will not leave, unless you go out with me for dinner.”
If Yuwei was a man, Jingyan would kick him aside, but she isn’t, and Jingyan had to keep cool. He ignored Yuwei, looked at Yiyao and asked: “Are you hungry? I’ll take you out for dinner.”
Yiyao stood away from him and said calmly: “Jingyan, today I come back with two purposes. First, I want to check out whether you are really having an affair with that woman. Second, I want to tell you that I am back safely, just like I promised. Now, my job is done, and I must get going.”
Jingyan felt heartbroken. He remembered how Yiyao left him the last time, and he didn’t want to repeat the history again, so he explained in a hurry: “There is no affair! There is nothing going on between me and that woman.”
“I know. I saw her bowing to you just now. I think she was must apologizing to you.” Yiyao smiled.
Her smile only made Jingyan more nervous. He said: “Then why are you still leaving? Don’t you even have enough time to have a dinner with me?”
Yiyao shrugged her shoulders and said: “I’m sorry. I really don’t.”
“That’s alright. I can understand.”
Yiyao then said: “I am really confused. Jingyan. If we really become a couple, I don’t want to come back and find my man getting involved in a mess with a few other women every time. I don’t want to waste my time on this nonsense!”
Jingyan stood between her and the car and said: “It’s all my fault. I will handle these matters in a more sensible way. I promise.”
“Who knows? I am absent most of the time after all. And Jingyan, I think you should find some young lady. Someone who can be with you all the time. But…” Yiyao pointed at Yuwei and continued: “But stay away from this kind of woman. She is insane.”
“Who are you talking about?” Yuwei asked.
“Can I make it any more obvious?”
Yuwei was angry. She shouted: “You…you are the crazy one! Why don’t you look into a mirror and see how ugly you are! Where did you get the confidence to talk to Jingyan?”
Yiyao laughed coldly. She said: “Young girl, how old are you? Twenty? You are still too young to find a boyfriend. Your breasts aren’t fully grown yet, and most men will find them way too small.”
Yuwei blushed with embarrassment. “ You are so disgusting!”
“You want me to be civil with you? Well, you just don’t deserve my respect.”
Yuwei didn’t know what to say. She stomped her feet angrily and said: “Jingyan will never marry you!” And then she turned around and walked away. She didn’t know what kind of insults would Yiyao throw to her if she didn’t leave.
“Alright. I need to go.” Yiyao said flatly. But her voice was authoritative.
Jingyan didn’t let go of her hand. He said: “Were you serious?”
“What do you mean?” Yiyao was confused. She looked at his red-rimmed eyes and suddenly realized what he was talking about. “Oh, yes. I am serious. You should find yourself another girlfriend. Someone who can be with you all the time.”
“Yiyao, don’t you see how much I love you?” Jingyan felt his heart was broken.
“I know you love me. And you are very nice to me.” Yiyao looked into his eyes and said seriously. “But it’s just….you are nice to everybody. And every time I come back, I am always presented with a huge surprise. You are always with another woman. How can you expect me to trust you?”
“Yiyao, these are all coincidences. There is nothing going on between me and these women! The woman you saw last time is just a business partner. And this woman…” Jingyan pointed at Jing, who was still standing at the entrance, and continued: “This woman is here to apologize to me. And the girl who just left is my father’s friend’s daughter. She is always a spoiled girl. Can you trust me?”
Yiyao looked at him. She could tell Jingyan’s feelings were hurt. She heaved a sigh and said: “Jingyan, I think we both need a break. We need to think about whether we are suitable for each other, and…..”
Jingyan interrupted: “No! I don’t need a break because I know what I am doing. I had enough time to think about our relationship, and I love you. I want to get married with you!”
“But I need to think about it. Move it.”
“I won’t.” Jingyan stood between her and the car and didn’t move.
Yiyao’s anger flared up. She grabbed his arm and wrestled him to the ground. Then she got into the car and left.
The security guard and Jing were both numb with shock. They couldn’t believe what just happened.
Jingyan got back on his feet quickly and chased the car, but Azure Dragon was driving so fast, and two minutes later, Jingyan lost sight of the car.
Jingyan felt his heart was shot through, and he couldn’t even breath. How can she just leave like that? Doesn’t she care at all? Jingyan thought to himself.
Jingyan began to hate himself. Why did he agree to dance with Jing that night? If he refused her invitation, none of this would have happened. And he decided to talk with Yuwei Tang’s father about Yuwei’s behavior. How could she say that Yiyao is ugly?
Yiyao looked outside the window. She felt sad. She had never fallen in love with anyone before. And she didn’t know loving someone can be so exhausting. She couldn’t help herself. Every time she sees him with another woman, she feels angry. But when she leaves him, she feels sad. Her emotions are like on a roller coaster since she fell in love with Jingyan.
Chapter 314 A Misunderstanding (3)
“Where do we go? Do we go back?” Azure Dragon asked.
After a long silence, Yiyao said: “Let’s find a hotel. I don’t want to go back.” She didn’t want to give up yet. It was not easy to find a man she loves, and she must calm herself down and recollect her thoughts.
“No problem.” Azure Dragon said.
Jingyan walked back to the company. His head drooped. Jing Yang was still there, and she witnessed what happened, and she felt more worried about herself because she now realized how much trouble she had caused for Jingyan.
“What are you still doing here? Go away!” Jingyan shouted at her. She was the one who created all the mess and he hated her guts.
Jing was frightened. She turned around and ran away.
Jingyan didn’t know when would he see her again, and he didn’t know whether she would ever forgive him. He felt so frustrated. Instead of going back home, he drove his car and went to a bar. A woman recognized Jingyan, and she followed him into the bar.
It was still early, so there were not many people in the bar. Jingyan found a corner and ordered a few spirits. The manager recognized him and served Jingyan the alcohol himself.
“Mr Ye, please enjoy. If you need anything, please let me know.”
Jingyan poured himself a glass of alcohol and waved at the manager dismissively. The manger then walked away.
Jingyan drank one glass after anther. The alcohol only made him feel worse. All he wants is to live a simple life with Yiyao. He wants to cook for Yiyao, and to wait for her to come back home. Why is such a simple dream so hard to achieve?
There were now more people in the bar. Jingyan began to feel dizzy. Some women noticed Jingyan and tried to flirt with him, but Jingyan only ignored them.
Jingyan realized that he just couldn’t stop thinking about Yiyao. His head was full of Yiyao’s faces. Her smiling face. Her angry face. And her indifferent face. He missed everything about her. At that moment, he took out his phone and tried to call Yiyao. He just wanted to listen to her voice.
He didn’t believe Yiyao would pick up. So when Yiyao actually did, he was very surprised.
“Yiyao? Yiyao! Please don’t leave me! I love you! I have loved you since I was a child. You can’t leave me!” Jingyan said through the phone. His voice was urgent and sad.
Yiyao noticed something was wrong. She said: “Are you drunk?”
“No. I’m not. I only drank a little.” Jingyan said.
Yiyao sighed. She knew Jingyan would never admit that he is drunk.
Jingyan continued: “Yiyao, I had been thinking about you everyday since you left, and I always dream about you! I learned to cook some new dishes and I want to cook for you. Can you give me a chance? Please don’t leave me.”
Yiyao was really touched by what Jingyan said. Jingyan seems so confident and proud when he is with other people. But when he talks to her, he is always like a young boy, who is sensitive, emotional and heart-warming.
“Stop drinking. Go home.” Yiyao said.
Jingyan smiled gently. “Can you come and pick me up? I want to see you. I need to see you.”
At that moment, Yiyao was tempted. She was also taken over by her emotions. She wanted to go and meet Jingyan, but in the end, her sense prevailed. She said: “Jingyan, please. I need a break. I need to think about it.” Then she hung up the phone quickly. She lied on her bed and stared at the ceiling. The silence in the room was utter, and she could hear her own heartbeats.
“Should I give him another chance?” She thought to herself.
She didn’t know. She was confused. She had been pondering over this question for such a long time but she never got an answer. She felt angry and she buried her head under the quilt.
At that time, someone was knocking the door.
“Who is it?” Yiyao shouted.
“Me!” It was Azure Dragon’s voice.
Yiyao got off the bed and opened the door. “What’s the matter?” She sounded annoyed.
Azure Dragon was dressed in a casual dress. He said shyly: “We don’t have much free time. Do you want to go shopping or something?”
Yiyao said in an annoyed voice: “I don’t want to go.”
“Please. I will be so bored if I go alone.” Azure Dragon said. He knew Yiyao was in a bad mood, so he wanted to take her out and have a walk.
Yiyao shot him a sideways glance and said: “Wait a second. I need to get changed.”
The hotel they were living in is in the downtown area. And the street was bustling. Azure Dragon was in high spirits, and he seemed to be curious about everything. He also bought two ice creams and shared them with Yiyao.
“It’s so cold. It will give you diarrhea.” Yiyao said.
Azure Dragon took a bite. He mumbled: “It’s not cold. Come on. Try it. It’s sweet.”
“I don’t have a sweet tooth. I’ll hold it for you. You will eat both of them.”
Azure Dragon looked at her and asked: “Are you still angry?”
“No, I am not.” Yiyao was too proud to show her feelings.
Azure Dragon had been working with Yiyao for quite a few years, and he knows Yiyao very well. He said: “I have something to say. Please don’t get angry with me.”
Yiyao looked at all the beautiful commodities in the glass cabinet and said: “Go ahead. I won’t be angry with you.”
Azure Dragon wore a serious expression. He said: “I thought about it and I think we all misunderstood Jingyan. Because I noticed he had a very bad attitude towards these two women who were there with him, so obviously they are not in a relationship”
Yiyao didn’t say anything. She knew what Azure Dragon said was true, but she just couldn’t let the matter rest so easily. The way that girl clung to Jingyan made her angry.
Azure Dragon continued: “But Jingyan has a very powerful family background, so many women will try to get near to him. That is indeed a problem.”
