Li Jingran saw the girl looking at him in astonishment and explained calmly, “I won’t allow him to insult my people.”
Even though Xu Wanwan had heard this many times, she still blushed this time.
She nodded slightly and asked again, “Will Master really come?”
She heard that her Master lived in seclusion and didn’t like to attend such occasions these past years. If he didn’t come, wouldn’t it be very awkward?
Li Jingran saw through her concerns. “Your Master naturally has to give you face.”
Xu Wanwan felt embarrassed when she heard this.
She said softly, “It’s nothing. It’s clearly because of you.”
She was only her Master’s most ordinary disciple. How could she have such a big face and invite him to attend such an important event?
Li Jingran leaned over and pressed his thin lips against her ear. “What’s mine is yours.”
There were a lot of people here. Xu Wanwan blushed and grabbed the man’s arm.
She cleared her throat. “This is a public place. Let’s pay attention to our image.”
Li Jingran laughed. “We were above board before. We didn’t need to care about other people’s gazes. ”
“Even though that’s what you said, isn’t it not good to be too intimate in public?”
Deep down, Xu Wanwan was very traditional. She still could not accept public displays of affection.
Li Jingran’s thin lips curved slightly. He suddenly raised his hand and grabbed the girl’s soft waist. His hot palm moved around her waist.
Xu Wanwan’s eyes widened, but she did not dare to make a sound. She only dared to stick close to the man’s body.
“You… What are you doing?”
She met the man’s slightly teasing eyes but only heard one sentence, “This is considered intimacy. ‘
Xu Wanwan could only beg for mercy, “I won’t say anything anymore. Can you let go first?”
Seeing the girl begging for her hand to let go pitifully, Li Jingran’s palm on her waist slowly moved away. Then, he found her hand and held it tightly.
The warmth of his palm kept passing through, making Xu Wanwan feel hot all over.
Li Jingran lowered his eyes to look at the girl’s rosy side profile, feeling happy. “There are more intimate things to do in the future. You have to get used to it.”
Xu Wanwan looked at the man innocently, like a little rabbit that had been wronged, but did not dare to say anything.
She could not break free from the man’s hand, so she had to socialize with him.
Along the way, she heard a lot of blessings.
Most of them praised her beauty, or wished that her relationship with Li Jingran would get better and better. In short, they were all words that made people happy.
Although the degree of truth in these words was not that high, she was still very happy.
At least in the eyes of others, their relationship was very beautiful.
There was no girl who did not like to hear the words of blessings.
The corners of Xu Wanwan’s lips were always curved upward. After the social gathering ended, she looked up at Li Jingran with shining eyes. “They are all so kind, they keep blessing us.”
How could Li Jingran not understand that most of them spoke English to others? The flattery on the surface was for the benefit behind the scenes.
But he did not want to break the girl’s innocence. The emotions in his eyes softened. “Because you’re very goo, you deserve their blessings.”
Xu Wanwan’s heart was warm. “Then… when we get married, can we also invite them to our wedding?”
Li Jingran curved his lips slightly. “You can invite as many people as you want.’
If she was happy, he would have no objections even if he invited the entire A City to attend their wedding.
Xu Wanwan could not help but fantasize about a beautiful future. With a smile on her face, she held onto the man’s arm and told him many things about the future.
After listening to the girl’s rambling for a while, Li Jingran raised his watch and looked at the time.
An hour had already passed. Master Nanshan should have arrived.
Not far away, Father Lin walked over excitedly. “Director Li, you’ve really put in a lot of effort. You actually invited Master Nanshan here!”
“Master has arrived?”
“Yes! I arranged for Master Nanshan to rest at the venue, so I came to look for you.”
Xu Wanwan turned to look at Li Jingran. “Then, shall we go over first?”
After all, there was still one thing that had not been resolved, and they could not let Master wait for too long.
Master Nanshan was sitting in the living room resting. When he saw Xu Wanwan and Li Jingran, he greeted them and said directly, “I’ve heard about the matter. I’ll come out and tell everyone about it later.’
Xu Wanwan said gratefully, “Thank you for your trouble, Master. You were kind enough to give me the painting, but I didn’t expect such a thing to happen…”
“It’s okay. It’s normal to have doubts.”
Master Nanshan was not a person who was calculative. After saying that, he followed Father Lin to the center of the banquet hall.
Chen Qiping was still standing in front of the landscape painting, pointing at it.
“Hmph, you have the nerve to say that it’s Master Nanshan’s real painting. It might be a cheap painting that costs nine dollars and nine packets of Mail Online!”
Chen Qiping was still chattering non-stop and did not notice Master Nanshan, who was standing behind him.
He only noticed that the expressions of the people around him were getting more and more serious. Only then did he realize that something was wrong and turned around.
The moment he saw Master Nanshan, his face instantly turned pale.
He stuttered for a long time but did not say a word. He just stared at Master Nanshan in a daze.
Master Nanshan’s tone was heavy. “Young man, one must maintain a humble heart. One must consider the consequences when speaking and doing things outside.”
Following that, Master Nanshan pointed at the landscape painting behind him and introduced it to everyone present. “This painting is a gift from me to my disciple. It is indeed an authentic painting. I hope that everyone will not misunderstand my disciple.”
When everyone heard this, they looked at Xu Wanwan in deep surprise. ‘
It was already shocking enough that this ordinary-looking lady in front of them was the young mistress of the Li Corporation. Who would have thought that she was actually Master Nanshan’s disciple?
This girl was really not simple.
Xu Wanwan pursed her lips slightly and smiled gently. “This is all a misunderstanding. It’s fine as long as we get it out in the open.”
“Right, right, right. How could someone as upright as you and Director Li do something like giving out fake paintings?”
“We all know that there are people who can’t stand seeing your good side and would deliberately say some slanderous words to frame you.”
“Those who slander you should be punished no matter what.”
“This happened at Director Lin’s banquet. Why don’t we let Director Lin make the decision?” Everyone spoke up for Xu Wanwan and pointed the blame at Chen Qiping.
Father Lin looked at the people of the Chen family and said unhappily, “The Lin family has worked with the Chen family for many years. I have never done anything to let the Chen family down!”
“Today is my birthday party. You don’t have to come if you don’t want to. What are you trying to achieve by ruining my reputation? !”
Father Chen glared at Chen Qiping. “Hurry up and apologize to them!”
It was fine if he had offended the Lin family, but he had offended Li Jingran..
