When Lin Fengmian woke up, it was already evening.
He slowly opened his eyes and froze for a while before he remembered that he was in his own apartment.
Ning Li’s computer was still on the other side of the table, but she was not there.
He straightened up and smelled something good coming from the kitchen.
Ning Li came over with a bowl.
“I cooked lotus seed porridge for you. You should eat lightly while you recuperate.”
Lin Fengmian’s eyes curved in a smile.
“Thank you, Sister.”
Ning Li began to pack up.
Seeing her actions, Lin Fengmian was stunned.
“Sister, aren’t you going to eat with me?”
“I have something to take care of.”
Lin Fengmian was a little disappointed, but he also knew that if she said she had something to take care of, it meant that she really was busy.
Besides, he was already very happy that she had spent the whole afternoon with him.
“Then I’ll see you off–”
“You just rest well here and make sure to eat the porridge later,” said Ning Li as she carried her bag and walked out.
Lin Fengmian still insisted on seeing her to the door.
“Be careful, Sister.”
Ning Li had just stepped out of the room when she heard him speak and turned back to look at him.
After taking a nap in the afternoon, his spirit and complexion had improved a lot. However, the faint bruise on his face was still very obvious.
Moreover, he was too skinny.
She said, “You don’t have to work so hard. You’re only eighteen years old. You’ve already done really well.”
There was an overload of work on him. He had to work continuously while dealing with all kinds of troubles.
The haters, obsessive fans…
Which one was easier to deal with?
Lin Fengmian was momentarily stunned before he then smiled.
“Yes, I know.”
Ning Li then turned around and left.
Lin Fengmian watched her enter the elevator before closing the door.
Looking at the room that had become quiet again, he was silent for a long time.
She had said that he was only eighteen years old, but in fact… she was only less than a month older than him.
It was because she was like his older sister, it was easy to forget that she herself was essentially still a child.
He walked to the long table and solemnly drank the bowl of porridge.
When Ning Li left the neighborhood, the sun was already setting. The warm orange light coated the clouds in the sky with a layer of gold.
When she walked to the gate of the community, she saw a white sedan parked by the roadside.
The model of the car was beautiful and the lines were smooth. With one look, she could already tell that it was very expensive.
She walked over and got into the passenger seat.
George put one hand on the steering wheel, unapologetically looked her up and down, and smiled.
“Ning, it’s been so long. You’re getting more and more beautiful.”
Ning Li buckled her seatbelt and leaned against the back of the chair. She closed her eyes.
The crown prince of the G&S Group had been reduced to some kind of manservant for the day.
George started the car as he reflected on what was wrong with her for the umpteenth time.
When he realized that he had subconsciously done as she ordered again, George gritted his teeth in annoyance.
“Do you know that I specifically postponed my date tonight to pick you up? I asked that young lady out three times before she agreed to go out with me. Since I’ve stood her up today, she’s definitely going to blacklist me.”
Ning Li’s tone was calm.
“It’s just a month ahead of what’s going to happen anyway. Why are you being so resentful?”
He finally understood that he would never be able to best Ning Li.
He resigned himself to his fate and stepped on the accelerator. The car headed straight for the G&S headquarters.
He had already asked her countless times and she had finally found the time.
So, he should just forget about this and just endure it!
Ning Li stayed at G&S for more than three hours.
George was right about one thing. As a designer, there were indeed some things that needed to be seen on the spot before they could make the best choice.
Regarding the layout of the show and the upcoming series of high-end gowns, George and the entire G&S design team respected Ning Li’s opinion to the greatest extent and strived to present it perfectly.
It was almost ten o’clock by the time the meeting finally ended.
Ning Li stood up and prepared to leave.
George asked, “Shall I send you back?”
Ning Li shook her head.
“There’s no need.”
As she said that, she picked up her backpack and prepared to leave.
She casually picked up her phone and realized that within a short period of time, there were suddenly several push notifications, several unread messages, and missed calls.
While she had been busy earlier, her phone had been muted, and she had not taken a look at it until now.
She narrowed her eyes and casually scrolled down a bit.
When she saw the words on it clearly, her eyelids twitched.
[ Explosive! A mysterious woman freely enters and leaves top idol Lin Fengmian’s apartment! Four hours together! Suspected romantic relationship exposed! ]
Lin Fengmian had a scandal.
As soon as the news was out, the entire Internet exploded.
A media outlet released an exclusive video with a voice recording.
“Originally, I just wanted to see how Brother Fengmian was after he was injured in the car accident. I never thought that there would be such a shocking windfall! It looks like we won’t have to worry about brother Fengmian anymore. There will naturally be people who will care about him!”
In the video, a tall and slender young girl with a backpack and a baseball cap could be seen walking into the second building of Lan Di Apartments.
She was quite far away, so her face could not be seen clearly.
However, one could vaguely tell that she was pretty.
If it was just this video, of course, it could not be seen as proof that this was Lin Fengmian’s love interest. After all, there wasn’t even a shadow of him on it.
However, the key point was that apart from this video, the paparazzi had also attached a photo.
It had to have been taken from the other side of the building.
In the picture, behind the window that was half-covered by a layer of muslin curtains was a long table.
Lin Fengmian sat at the side of the long table with his head tilted slightly.
Only half of his face was revealed, but his signature hair and the cross-shaped diamond earring could not be any clearer. It was him!
A girl stood next to him, holding a bowl of porridge in her hands, as if she was about to give it to him.
Her clothes were exactly the same as the girl that had been in the video.
This time, she was not wearing a hat, so one could vaguely see her beautiful and clear face.
Although it was a little blurry, people who were familiar with her could definitely recognize that it was Ning Li.
Ning Li exited the app and saw a missed call at the top.
It was Lu Huaiyu.
