At this time, in a luxury suite in a high-end district in the center of Qinghu City, Cheng Muze, who had been working all night, had just turned off his computer and stretched lazily. He was just about to find something to eat and go to sleep when he suddenly heard the doorbell ring.
Cheng Muze looked at the time. It was 8: 30. He was so sleepy that he could not help but mutter, "Who is it? Why are you here so early?"
But even though he was complaining, Cheng Muze still went to open the door.
The door opened. When Cheng Muze saw the woman standing in front of him, he was stunned. "You, you..."
The woman was tall and slim. She was almost as tall as Cheng Muze in high heels.. She was very thin. Her eyes were deep and her face was thin. However, her facial features were more defined. She was a beauty at the end of the day, especially when she was wearing a short skirt. Her legs were straight and long.
If Cheng Muze had seen such a unique beauty in the past, he would have taken a close look at her. But today, he turned pale with fright, as if he had seen a ghost.
"What's wrong? How long has it been since we last met? Kevin, don't tell me you don't know me?" Chen Xinran was baffled by Cheng Muze's reaction.
"How could it be!" Cheng Muze came back to his senses and the corner of his mouth twitched. He quickly moved aside, "Annie, when did you come back?"
Chen Xinran shrugged, "Yesterday, I went to Zheng Xiaoxiao's house to attend a cocktail party."
Chen Xinran's tone became desolate when she mentioned Zheng Xiaoxiao. She changed her shoes and entered the house, trying hard to act more natural. She looked around at the decorations in Cheng Muze's house, then shook her head and sighed, "Kevin, your taste really hasn't changed for many years. You're still so gorgeous!"
However, Cheng Muze did not respond to Chen Xinran. At this moment, his heart was in turmoil because Chen Xinran mentioned the Zheng family's banquet. If he remembered correctly, Huo Liancheng had business dealings with the Zheng family. Huo Liancheng would definitely have gone to the Zheng family last night. Then...
Cheng Muze looked at Chen Xinran and suddenly shivered. He reached out and wiped the cold sweat off his head.
Chen Xinran happened to turn around and coincidentally saw Cheng Muze's strange eyes and wiping his sweat. She could not help but raise her eyebrows, "Kevin, are you very nervous?"
"No!" Of course Cheng Muze did not admit it. At this moment, he was not sleepy at all. He thought in his heart, even if Chen Xinran went to the cocktail party, so what? She might not necessarily meet Huo Liancheng. Perhaps Jian Yun did not go!
"Do you have wine at home?" Chen Xinran saw that Cheng Muze had been distracted ever since she came in, so she could only take the initiative to ask him.
"Wine?" Cheng Muze looked at the time and said in surprise. "Drinking early in the morning? Is this how you supermodels live?"
Chen Xinran put down her bag and smiled. "I'm not in a good mood. I want to find someone to drink with me."
"Why are you in a bad mood?" Cheng Muze asked casually as he walked towards the bar.
"I met Liancheng last night." Chen Xinran sounded even more disappointed. "And his wife."
Cheng Muze shivered.
"Kevin, Kevin?" Chen Xinran saw that Cheng Muze suddenly stopped when he took the bottle of wine. She did not know what he was doing. She could not help but raise her voice and shout a few times before walking over.
"Ah?" Cheng Muze turned around and suddenly saw Chen Xinran behind him. He was shocked and his hand that was pouring wine shook. The wine in the bottle immediately spilled out. Chen Xinran stood too close and the wine immediately splashed onto her body. She was wearing a white t-shirt and was immediately soaked by the red wine.
"Ah!" Chen Xinran screamed and took a step back.
"Ah, I'm sorry, I'm sorry!" Cheng Muze quickly put down the bottle and cup and apologized.
"It's all wet. Kevin, what are you thinking?" Chen Xinran was a little angry, but she immediately restrained her urge to lose her temper.
"Did you bring any clothes?" Cheng Muze was very guilty, so he naturally would not care about Chen Xinran's questioning tone.
"No. No matter how you wear it, it's sticky." Chen Xinran was depressed.
"You should wear my clothes first!" Cheng Muze led Chen Xinran to his bedroom and picked out a shirt for her.
Chen Xinran did not have any objections, but she did not feel comfortable with the wine on her body. She said to Cheng Muze, "I will take a shower and borrow your bathroom."
"Okay, there's a new towel in the cabinet." Of course Cheng Muze would not have any objections, because his mind was full of thoughts. Now that the matter of him lying to Jian Yun had happened, would Huo Liancheng come to settle it with him?
"Kevin, is the doorbell ringing?" Chen Xinran was about to enter the bathroom when she suddenly heard someone knocking on the door. However, Cheng Muze was in a daze. She kindly reminded him.
"Ah, oh!" Cheng Muze scratched his head. "Maybe the takeout I ordered arrived."
Cheng Muze did not think much of it. He walked to the door. He was so distracted that he did not even look at the door. He opened the door immediately.
"Hi!" When the person outside the door saw Cheng Muze, she smiled sweetly and waved to greet him.
Cheng Muze blinked and blinked again. Only then did he recognize the beautiful girl in a white t-shirt, jeans, and two braided braids. She was Jian Yun. So the man next to her was -
Cheng Muze felt his neck stiffen. He turned his neck mechanically and looked at the man. He saw Huo Liancheng, who had a frozen face for thousands of years, smiling at him.
"Four, Fourth Brother, you, can you not smile..." Cheng Muze trembled violently. He felt a chill crawl up his back and rush straight to the back of his head.
"Are you not going to invite us in?" Jian Yun went to squeeze Cheng Muze. She looked up and saw that there was a lady's bag on the sofa. It was from the Ma family. Jian Yun immediately raised her eyebrows, "Is there a guest?"
"No, no!" Cheng Muze felt that his tongue was stiff now and he could not speak properly.
Huo Liancheng had already squeezed Cheng Muze into the house with Jian Yun in his arms. The pair of high heels of a woman at the entrance was very eye-catching. When they came in, they both heard the sound of water coming from the washroom. Someone was taking a bath.
Jian Yun winked, "Looks like we came at the wrong time!"
"We came to settle the score with you!" Huo Liancheng was very rude. His sharp eyes fixed on Cheng Muze. The corner of his mouth curled up slightly. "I think you know what I mean, right?"
Cheng Muze scratched his head awkwardly and pretended not to understand. "Fourth Brother, I, I don't know what you mean."
Jian Yun clenched her fists and approached Cheng Muze step by step. Her pretty little face had a sinister smile. "Cheng Muze, to think I trusted you so much. You tricked me just like that. You caused me to be so conflicted during this period of time that I almost became depressed. Tell me, how do I settle this score?"
"Ah, what? I don't know what you guys are talking about!" Cheng Muze decided to force himself to the end. Anyway, he was sure that Jian Yun had deleted the message long ago. How could she hit him without any evidence?
However, this time, Cheng Muze had miscalculated.
