Chapter 776 - Boyfriend Bias
Yu Yu and the rest of her group went upstairs. Soon, Shengguang Media’s staff came to welcome them and invited them to the conference room.
However, Yu Yu did not see the rumored President of Shengguang Media.
The person who had come to negotiate with them was Shengguang Media’s Vice President, Zhao Xuan. He was an extremely young man, only 24 years old this year.
In fact, because Shengguang Media had only been established less than a year ago, all of its staff were young.
Yu Yu chatted with him for a while but could not help from asking about their president.
After all, she had specifically come here for him today.
If they could negotiate a collaboration and establish a relationship with that president, then this trip to the Capital would be completely settled.
Zhao Xuan looked at the time.
“President Yu, please wait for a moment. I’ll make a call to ask.”
He stood up and left.
Yu Yu looked at the contract in her hand and withdrew her gaze. She was contemplating how she would convince the other party to agree to the collaboration.
Shen Li walked into the shopping mall.
As it was Saturday, the place was extremely lively.
She looked around and finally went to a dessert shop on the first floor. She ordered a piece of mille crepe cake, two macarons, and a cup of peach oolong milk tea.
Her phone rang just as she accepted the bag from the cashier, so she answered the call.
Zhao Xuan’s voice came through.
“President Shen, when will you be arriving?”
Shen Li inserted a straw into the milk tea cup.
“I can’t go today. You can talk to them.”
He had been handling the negotiations with the Yu Corporation so far.
Zhao Xuan was very surprised.
“You’re not coming? Is there something wrong?”
It had been very difficult to invite this person over. After a great deal of persuasion, in the end, she was still not going to come again.
Shen Li replied with a “Hmm” and took a sip of her milk tea.
Zhao Xuan, “…”
Just then, the sound of someone making an order came through the phone.
“A cup of passion fruit juice with extra sugar and less ice. Thank you.”
Zhao Xuan, “…”
If his guess was not wrong, this should be the milk tea shop?
Then, she must be really busy, huh?
Shen Li said, “Is there anything else?”
Zhao Xuan rubbed his temples helplessly. “No, you’re busy.”
Shen Li hung up the phone and took a bite of the macaron.
The sweet and crispy fragrance filled the air.
She narrowed her eyes slightly as a sudden thought came to her. She took out her phone and took a photo of the pile of desserts.
Then, she sent it to Lu Huaiyu.
Zhao Xuan ended the call, put away his phone, and returned to the meeting room.
Yu Yu immediately looked up.
Zhao Xuan gave a polite smile.
“President Yu, I’m really sorry. President Shen is busy today and won’t be able to come.”
Yu Yu was stunned.
The President of Shengguang Media was extremely low-key. Ever since their investment in “Hibiscus” had made a huge profit, Zhao Xuan had always represented Shengguang Media. However, not a single photo had ever been released of the real boss.
The opportunity today had been something that they had obtained with great difficulty.
Because of this, she had even delayed her other travel arrangements and specially waited in the Capital for a few more days.
With an indignant heart, she continued to ask, “I wonder what President Shen is busy with that’s so important?”
Zhao Xuan paused for a moment before saying with a smile, “Our president is busy with an investigation of a new project.”
The investigation of which flavor of milk tea would taste better.
With that, there was nothing more to ask.
Moreover, Shengguang Media had never guaranteed that President Shen would come today.
It had just been their expectations after they had heard the news.
Hence, even though Yu Yu was very regretful and unhappy, all she could do was endure it.
Zhao Xuan said, “President Yu, let’s begin.”
Yu Yu forced a smile onto her face and asked her secretary to hand over the contract.
Small conference room.
Lu Huaiyu was having a meeting with several high-level executives of Lu Corporation.
One middle-aged man asked, “Second Master, as far as we know, Shengguang Media has not signed on to cooperate with any theater chain in China. Do you think we should go and communicate with them?”
The Lu Corporation owned the largest theater chain in the country.
Lu Huaiyu leaned back in his chair but did not say anything.
The other person continued.
“Although Shengguang Media has only been established for a short period of time, its momentum of development is very strong. Currently, many theater chains have already extended an olive branch to them.”
The Lu Corporation was also very optimistic about Shengguang Media.
Lu Huaiyu’s cell phone suddenly lit up as it lay on the table.
He picked it up and looked at it, his eyebrows raising slightly.
It was a photo.
The bright afternoon sun could be seen shining down. Layers of strawberry crepes, as well as one pink and one blue macaron nestled against each other. Beside them was a cup of milk tea.
There was also a piece missing from the pink macaron, which looked like a light bite mark.
The little girl was having quite a carefree and leisurely Saturday.
Lu Huaiyu asked: [ Is it delicious? ]
Shen Li replied:[ It’s delicious. ]
It was delicious. So, she had eaten it just to let him see it?
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips curled up.
The middle-aged man called out to him.
“Second Master, what do you think?”
Lu Huaiyu put away his phone, thought for a moment, and nodded.
“The President of Shengguang Media’s vision is really good. You should go and talk to them.”
“Okay, Second Master.”
Lu Huaiyu stood up.
“That’s the end of today’s meeting.”
Although everyone was a little surprised, they did not say anything and agreed with him.
Compared to the time when he only came to the Lu Corporation in the morning, they were quite content that he was now occasionally coming in the afternoon as well.
Moreover, if Lu Huaiyu were to keep busy here all day, their workload would probably increase greatly.
Shen Li ate slowly and started playing games on her seat again.
From time to time, there were people who would look over. Most of them were boys.
Although her outfit was very simple, her face was very eye-catching.
Not long after, one boy walked over.
Shen Li looked up.
The boy had initially behaved quite normally, but when his eyes met her peach blossom eyes that were so bright and captivating, his face instantly turned red.
“Hello, I saw that you ordered the strawberry mille crepe cake. It looks pretty good, don’t you think so?”
Before Shen Li could say anything, someone pushed the door open and came in.
The shop suddenly became quiet for a moment.
It was because that man that had just entered was too noble and aloof, and his charm was peerless.
Many girls looked in his direction with faint excitement on their faces.
“He’s so handsome!”
“Which company does this man belong to? I’ve never seen him here before.”
“He’s really amazing… What kind of god-like beauty is this?”
Lu Huaiyu walked over.
The attention of the boy in front of Shen Li was still on her.
“This is my first time here, so I was wondering what it tastes like.”
Shen Li said, “I think–”
Before she could finish her sentence, a slender and fair hand reached over, picked up her fork, and inserted it into the piece of strawberry mille crepe cake before taking a bite.
This action immediately shocked the boy, and he turned his head to look.
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
“The taste is okay.”
The boy still had not reacted.
That fork, that fork…
Lu Huaiyu sat down opposite Shen Li. Only then did he give the boy an indifferent look, and laughed lightly.
“However, I think that everything my girlfriend has eaten is delicious, so I might be biased. If you really want to know what it tastes like, I think it’d be better for you to buy one and try it for yourself.”
