Chapter 644 Are You Free Tonight?
Since Jiang Ruiqin ignored her on purpose now, she obviously wouldn’t stay here and left at once. However, she would invite Jiang Ruiqin to hang out with her again after her anger went away. She wasn’t willing to give up, because Jiang Ruiqin aroused her desire of conquest.
A self-centered person with a strong sense of self-esteem always wanted what he or she couldn’t have.
Gu Ning followed Jiang Ruiqin to the table, and greeted Tang Qingyang when she saw him. Afterwards, they introduced themselves to each other.
“Here, please order whatever you want.” Jiang Ruiqin gave the menu to Gu Ning, because he and Tang Qingyang had only ordered several dishes for two people.
“Thanks!” Gu Ning took the menu.
Song Manni and Xia Yichu also ordered their favorite food.
“Gu Ning, what are you up to these days?” Jiang Ruiqin asked Gu Ning pretending to be very casual.
“Dealing with something,” Gu Ning said, but didn’t tell him more details.
Since Gu Ning didn’t want to tell him more details, Jiang Ruiqin didn’t ask further.
“Oh, if you meet those women again in the future, you better stay away from them, especially the one who has competed for vacant seats against you,” Jiang Ruiqin said. Although he knew that Gu Ning was good at kung fu, it couldn’t solve everything. Sometimes, power was the key to any problems.
“Oh, what’s her background,” Gu Ning asked with curiosity.
“The Leng family in the capital,” Jiang Ruiqin said directly.
“The Leng family?” Gu Ning was surprised. The Leng family in the capital was precisely Leng Shaoting’s family. It seemed unavoidable that she would meet the woman again in the future.
Leng Shaoting had told her that he only cared about his grandpa in his family, so she could fight back without hesitation if other members found fault with her.
Seeing Gu Ning being surprised, Jiang Ruiqin thought that she was a little scared, so he comforted her at once. “Don’t worry. I can help you if she causes you any trouble.”
“It’s fine. I can handle it,” Gu Ning said. In fact, she didn’t care about Leng Shaojia at all. If she didn’t have Leng Shaoting’s support, she probably would be afraid of the Leng family’s power and influence, but there was no need for her to be afraid now since Leng Shaoting was her boyfriend.
“Oh, are you free tonight? If you are, why don’t we go have some fun together in a club after dinner?” Jiang Ruiqin asked.
“I’d love to, but I need to deal with something else.” Gu Ning declined.
“Fine!” Jiang Ruiqin didn’t insist, but felt disappointed.
Leng Shaojia, who left in anger didn’t have an appetite at all, so she went to a bar later. She was in a terrible mood now, so she vented her anger by drinking with her friends Shi Yanyan and Qin Beixin.
Leng Shaojia was very arrogant, so she only made friends with those who were from either super-rich or powerful families.
Shi Yanyan was born in a super-rich family in the capital, while Qin Beixin’s father was a senior administration official in the capital. Although their family background wasn’t as good as Leng Shaojia’s, they were all from the high society.
However, only the Leng family and the Shi family had been super-rich and powerful for generations, and many members of those two families held important positions or great influence in either politics or business. In the Qin family, on the other hand, only Qin Beixin’s parents occupied significant jobs in the government. That was the big difference between a single person’s influence and a whole family’s power.
On the way to the bar, Shi Yanyan suddenly thought of a question, so she asked, “Shaojia, I think Jiang Ruiqin treats the girl differently. I’ve never seen him being so careful and gentle to a girl before. Does he like her?”
Hearing that, Leng Shaojia stopped walking for a second, and then realized that Jiang Ruiqin really was different today. She liked Jiang Ruiqin, so she naturally knew a lot about him, and she had also never seen him being so kind and taking the initiative to approach a girl.
“Did he do it on purpose to annoy Shaojia?” Qin Beixin said.
“No matter what, I won’t let her go. If I see her again, I promise that I’ll pay her back!” Leng Shaojia said with strong hatred. She had been embarrassed in public today because of Gu Ning, so she wouldn’t forgive Gu Ning.
When Leng Shaoting finished dinner, Gu Ning was still in the middle of it, so she received his call halfway through eating.
“Where are you now? Have you eaten?” Leng Shaoting asked.
“I’m at the commercial district now, and I’m still eating,” Gu Ning said.
“Do you need me to pick you up?” Leng Shaoting asked.
“Sure,” Gu Ning said, then hung up.
Cai Qinyi had the result of the investigation of Ning Changkai.
The office leader was transferred to another department in another city, but nobody knew the details. Besides, no one knew whether he had betrayed Cai Qinyi either, but Cai Qinyi’s secretary said that they didn’t have any solid proof against Xinghe.
Hearing that, Cai Qinyi was a little relieved.
Leng Shaoting soon arrived at the delicious city, and Gu Ning and the others also finished eating.
“Where are you going now? I can send you there,” Jiang Ruiqin said.
“Thanks, my friend will pick us up,” Gu Ning said.
“Great.” Jiang Ruiqin didn’t say anything further, but felt quite disappointed.
When they walked out together, Leng Shaoting’s car was parked outside. Gu Ning said good-bye to them, and Jiang Ruiqin along with Tang Qingyang saw them getting in the car at the door.
Seeing Gu Ning walking out with Jiang Ruiqin, Leng Shaoting was displeased. Didn’t she say she would reject Jiang Ruiqin’s invitation for a meal? Why did they dine together?
Gu Ning sensed Leng Shaoting’s annoyance once she was in the car. She immediately realized that he was mad because of Jiang Ruiqin. Although it was just a coincidence that she had dined with Jiang Ruiqin, Leng Shaoting didn’t know, so it was understandable that he was mad now.
Gu Ning explained it to Leng Shaoting at once, and Leng Shaoting’s anger faded, but Gu Ning didn’t tell him that the woman was Leng Shaojia.
In the beginning Xia Yichu and Song Manni felt stressed in the car, but then gradually got used to it. Afterwards, Gu Ning introduced them to one another.
It was very dim in the car, so Xia Yichu and Song Manni didn’t see Leng Shaoting’s appearance clearly, otherwise they would be astonished as well as excited.
