When Jiang Rongyan heard this, the corners of his mouth stiffened and his expression became unnatural. He explained, “Yes, that assistant used to work in this hotel too.”
Zhao Jing was a little puzzled. “Why didn’t I know… Hmm…”
However, before he could finish speaking, a chicken leg was stuffed into his mouth by Jiang Rongyan.
Jiang Rongyan gave him a cold look. “This drumstick is quite delicious.”
Zhao Jing glared at Jiang Rongyan with dissatisfaction. He raised his hand and pinched the drumstick. He took a big bite and snorted coldly.
“What did you say?” Xu Anran was a little puzzled.
Zhao Jing immediately smiled and looked at Xu Anran. When he felt a cold gaze on him, he could not help but shiver.
He shook his head and said, “It’s nothing!”
After he said that, he chewed on the drumstick in his hand and said, “Sister-in-law, this drumstick is delicious. You should eat it too!”
Xu Anran smiled and replied. She immediately reached out her chopsticks and picked up a small drumstick for herself to taste.
“It’s really quite delicious.”
“Sister-in-law, this is also delicious!”
Zhao Jing was an extroverted character. He was not bad-looking either. He was a typical sunny boy. When he smiled, he looked like a ruffian.
He was also very good at talking. After a meal, Xu Anran was amused by him many times.
Seeing the two of them sing and chatter in union, and communicating so harmoniously, an inexplicable sense of irritation welled up in Jiang Rongyan’s heart.
He only felt that this meal was extremely torturous.
Seeing that it was getting late outside, Xu Anran looked at Jiang Rongyan and said, “Are you full? Let’s go home?”
Jiang Rongyan did not even look at Xu Anran. He took out a piece of paper to wipe his mouth and replied in a low voice, “Yes.”
Knowing that Jiang Rongyan loved to put on a cold face, Xu Anran did not feel anything wrong either. She followed behind him in small steps.
There was nothing to say along the way.
In the villa.
Xu Anran poured a glass of water and looked up to observe Jiang Rongyan’s expression. She felt that something was not right, so she tentatively handed it over. “Drink?”
“No need.” After saying that, Jiang Rongyan turned around and went upstairs.
Xu Anran frowned slightly. She was a little puzzled and muttered, “This is really baffling.”
However, she did not think too much about it. She went upstairs to wash up. In addition, she was a little tired today, so she quickly fell asleep.
It was very early in the morning, and Xu Anran also woke up very early.
After sorting out the necessary information for work, Xu Anran changed into a black long dress. She casually scanned her eyes and then took the folder downstairs.
Breakfast was already placed on the table. Jiang Rongyan was sitting on a chair and eating his sandwich slowly. When he heard her footsteps, he raised his eyes and immediately continued eating.
“I have to go to work later.” Xu Anran also took a sandwich and looked at Jiang Rongyan.
Jiang Rongyan nodded and said, “I’ll send you.”
Ten minutes later, the two of them walked out of the villa together. Jiang Rongyan asked Xu Anran to wait at the door while he went to the garage to drive the car.
After a while, Jiang Rongyan drove a white Shanghai Volkswagen and stopped in front of Xu Anran.
Xu Anran was stunned for a moment and sat in the passenger seat.
Jiang Rongyan still did not say a word. Sensing the subtle atmosphere, Xu Anran secretly glanced at him.
Finally, her gaze fell on the gas coupon stuck in the car. Xu Anran was a little stunned. Was the life of a rich person so simple and unadorned?
Xu Anran lowered her head and smiled.. She immediately looked up at Jiang Rongyan and praised him, “I didn’t expect you to live so simply. It seems that I’ve picked up a treasure!”
