The annual meeting was held in the cabin on the first floor, while the second floor was the lounge. There were many people in the cabin on the first floor, but Fang Tong did not find Ding Minghui.
“Qinglan, do you think he will not come?” Fang Tong asked Shen Qinglan softly.
“No, we’ll see him later.” Shen Qinglan said.
“Lanlan, let’s go to the second floor to rest for a while.” Seeing Shen Qinglan standing still, Shen Junyu said.
“You go up first, I’ll stay here for now, then I’ll find you later.”
Shen Junyu didn’t say much, and went upstairs first. Yu Xiaoxuan wanted to stay, but was dragged away by Han Yi.
Shen Qinglan and Fang Tong walked into the venue, took a glass of juice in their hands, and Shen Qinglan separated from Fang Tong to find someone.
“Ann.” Someone patted her on the shoulder, Shen Qinglan turned around and saw Jin Enxi, wearing a fiery red tube top evening dress.
Shen Qinglan frowned, “Why are you here.”
“Of course I’m here to play, it’s so lively here, how could I be missing.” Jin Enxi frowned.
“Tonight is the annual meeting of my brother’s company, you are not allowed to make trouble, if…” She didn’t ask how Jin Enxi got in. If she wanted to get in, she would naturally have a thousand ways.
Jin Enxi made a begging gesture, “Ann, I promise not to cause trouble.”
Shen Qinglan didn’t care about her anymore. Since Jin Enxi made a promise, she would naturally do it.
She continued to shuttle through the crowd, and the eyes of many people present fell on her intentionally or unintentionally. After all, Shen Qinglan was the kind of person who would become the focus of everyone as long as she stood in the crowd even if she didn’t say anything.
All the business friends of Shen Junyu had been invited to the annual meeting of Junyu Group, so none of the Shen family showed up, and even Shen Xitong did not receive the invitation. Afterwards, when Shen Xitong learned that Shen Qinglan had participated in the Junyu Group’s annual meeting, her heart felt suffocated again.
Shen Qinglan’s photos and videos of saving people had caused waves on the Internet, so many people recognized her and knew that she was the boss’s younger sister. Naturally, some people wanted to come up to make friends, but they just looked at Shen Qinglan’s cold and estranged face, and no one really dared to approach her.
Shen Qinglan looked around in the crowd and didn’t see Ding Minghui. She glanced casually, but then her eyes lit up. She looked in that direction and saw Ding Minghui standing beside a woman in her thirties, however their gestures were not intimate.
She just wanted to call Fang Tong, but when she turned her head, she found that Ding Minghui was gone, so she kept the phone in her hand down.
On the other side, Ding Minghui was taken aback when he saw Fang Tong, Fang Tong just looked at him across the crowd, and her eyes were full of disappointment.
She turned around and left, Ding Minghui saw this, his eyes were full of panic, so he raised his feet and followed.
His footsteps were fast, and it didn’t take long for him to catch up with Fang Tong on the deck, “Tongtong, why are you here?”
He grabbed Fang Tong’s wrist and asked.
Fang Tong stopped and looked at him coldly, “Of course you didn’t want me to appear here.”
Ding Minghui looked a little flustered, “No, Tongtong, listen to my explanation first. I can explain it.”
Fang Tong Tong’s expression was still cold, and she looked at him with disappointment, because this man had lied to her, she trusted him so much, but he lied to her.
Ding Minghui was a little uncomfortable when Fang Tong looked at him like that, but he had to explain, “Tongtong, I originally wanted to take you to this annual meeting, but just before I was going to call you, our manager called me and said that she didn’t have a male partner for the annual meeting and hoped that I could attend as her male partner. You also know that in the workplace, if you offend your boss, it will be difficult to make progress in your work in the future, so… so I agreed to her. I’m sorry Tongtong, I didn’t mean to deceive you.”
Fang Tong’s icy expression was not softened by his explanation. When she saw Ding Minghui just now, she immediately recognized the woman standing beside him. The woman was the one she saw with him in the restaurant last time. She thought it was his client, but now it seemed that the woman was his manager.
Fang Tong suddenly felt cold all over. Was this the first time Ding Minghui lied to her? The last time he said that he was accompanying a client to dinner, he was actually seeing her as a joke, right?
She looked at the man in front of her, feeling very strange.
The strangeness in Fang Tong’s eyes made Ding Minghui panic. He hugged Fang Tong and said, “Tongtong, please believe me, I really didn’t mean to lie to you, I…”
Fang Tong let him hold her, it’s just that the embrace that used to make her feel warm now made her feel cold, cold to the core.
There was no reaction from the person in his arms, which made Ding Minghui’s panic continue to increase, he hugged Fang Tong tightly, “Tongtong, can you say something, I really know I’m in the wrong, I would never lie again. I’ll tell you everything, okay? Don’t ignore me.”
At the end, Ding Minghui’s voice seemed to be a little choked, and the coldness in Fang Tong’s eyes receded a little. Halfway through, she let it go.
“Let go of me.” Fang Tong said slowly, “It’s okay this time, but next time if I find out that you lied to me, Ding Minghui, it will be over for us. There is no room for deception in Fang Tong’s world.”
Surprise burst out in Ding Minghui’s eyes, and he nodded again and again, “Tongtong, don’t worry, this is definitely the first and last time, and I will never lie to you in the future.”
Fang Tong didn’t doubt that Ding Minghui had anything to do with his manager. She could feel Ding Minghui’s love for her.
Ding Minghui looked down at Fang Tong in his arms, lowered his head, and wanted to kiss her lips, but she turned his head slightly to avoid it. The kiss fell on her face, and Ding Minghui’s eyes darkened.
“Okay, go back, didn’t you come with your manager, if you don’t go back, people will find you.” Fang Tong said, his tone was very light.
“What about you?” Ding Minghui asked.
“I came with Qinglan, and I’ll find her later.”
Ding Minghui naturally knew Shen Qinglan, and knew that she was not only the boss’s sister, but also Fang Tong’s friend. No wonder Fang Tong could come to the annual meeting.
“Then why don’t I wait for her with you?” Ding Minghui didn’t forget the strangeness and alienation in Fang Tong’s eyes after their unpleasant quarrel just now.
“No, she will come out soon, you can go in.” Fang Tong refused.
Ding Minghui said no more, glanced at Fang Tong again, and walked in.
Fang Tong didn’t call Shen Qinglan, but just stood on the deck and looked at the dark sea at night.
It was winter now, the north wind was howling, making people shiver, but Fang Tong seemed to be unaware, looking at the sea quietly, not knowing what she was thinking.
“Do you really want to toss yourself into the hospital?” Shen Junyu’s indifferent voice sounded over the top of her head, followed by a burst of warmth on her shoulders.
Fang Tong was startled, turned around quickly, and saw Shen Junyu standing behind her at the moment.
