Su Wan touched her brows. How did this man know her?
Did Luo Jian send his friend over to provide an explanation because he could not make it?
Out of politeness, Su Wan restrained herself from guessing further. She smilingly nodded and said, “Yes, hello, I’m Su Wan. Are you Luo Jian’s friend?”
What surprised Su Wan was the man sat down directly in a casual manner without replying. He crossed his legs and placed a leg on the chair beside him.
“I’m not Luo Jian’s friend, I’m Luo Jian!”
Upon hearing this, Su Wan was startled and almost spilled the coffee in her hand.
This man was Luo Jian?!
The picture of Luo Jian and the descriptions about his appearance and height on the dating website were completely different from the man standing in front of her. The height stated was 178 cm, but this man was shorter than her.
Su Wan thought that he was joking. She sat down and pressed against her chest. “Please don’t pull my leg. Could Luo Jian not make it?”
“I said I’m Luo Jian!”
The man twitched his mouth impatiently and grabbed the menu in front of Su Wan while grumbling, “Why is the coffee here so expensive? What, even plain water costs dozens of dollars?”
The man placed the menu down indignantly. When he saw the cup of coffee in front of Su Wan, he snatched it from her.
He acted too quickly for Su Wan to stop him. She had never expected this man, who called himself Luo Jian, to drink the coffee which she had drank almost half of!
Su Wan suddenly felt nauseous. Her face turned cold and did not bother maintaining a facade.
“If you are Luo Jian, can you please explain why your appearance and height differ from the information stated on the website? Could it be that your career is different and you’re not actually a lawyer? Furthermore, don’t you know it’s rude to drink someone else’s beverage before getting permission?”
“I’m a real lawyer!”
Luo Jian hesitated and said proudly, “As for my appearance, I have slightly touched up the picture. Moreover, women who only look at a man’s appearance are shallow. I’m going to marry you anyway, a cup of coffee is nothing.”
This shameless theory made Su Wan feel angry and funny.
She was about to retort but when she saw Luo Jian finishing her cup of coffee, the unpleasant sight had dissipated her energy to speak.
Luo Jian thought Su Wan was speechless after what he said. He looked Su Wan from head to toe and was awe-struck.
“Miss Su, you are beautiful! Appearance is of the utmost importance for women!”
His vision fell on Su Wan’s full peaks and couldn’t help but touch his lips. He thought to himself, ‘This girl has good figure. I wonder how it feels touching her? If she’s a virgin, it would be even better…’
Su Wan laughed angrily. She stood up and was about to leave.
“Mr. Luo, your point of view is difficult for others to agree with. You said earlier that women shouldn’t mind men’s appearance, and now you say a woman’s appearance is of the utmost importance. When you help others in a lawsuit, do you use two principles too?”
When he realized that Su Wan was truly angry, Luo Jian shoved the menu towards Su Wan. “Let’s not talk about this anymore. You haven’t taken your lunch, have you? Let’s order something first, shall we?”
Although the food here was expensive, he had to spend to get Su Wan to like him.
What theory did women know? They just had to be pretty. There wasn’t a need to argue with them. Wasn’t she going to be his sooner or later?
It would be wonderful if he could subdue this beauty tonight, to let her know his power. Just the thought of it made him impatient.
At the same time, in a refined private room on the second floor of Blue Mountain Café, the man in gold-framed glasses took a sip of coffee while teasing, “A few days ago, we got into trouble together but you were lucky to be rescued by a beauty while I was wretched.”
Jiang Xuecheng looked at him faintly. His eyes were cold. “How did others know of our whereabouts the day we went out together? Those men were fierce. I’ve used my grandfather’s power to investigate but have no news just yet.”
The man shrugged and placed his cup of coffee down.
“Those men looked as if they had early preparation. After that, I did not manage to investigate too. Let’s not talk about this. Let’s talk about the pretty girl who rescued you. I heard from Ah Si that she spent a night at your place. Even I have not spent a night at your place before. Have you got the idea all straightened out?”
Jiang Xuecheng remained unmoved and brought the topic back to the murderers. “She was just an ordinary girl who saved my life. It’s the origin of that group of people that I’m worried about. Even when we join hands, we are still clueless.”
The man wearing glasses could see Jiang Xuecheng’s reluctance to discuss the girl who had saved him. He agreed with Ah Si’s opinion that Jiang Xuecheng truly cared about this woman.
He smiled as he readjusted his glasses, “We will slowly investigate and the time will come to reveal the truth. I still have something on in the afternoon. How about we call it a day?”
Jiang Xuecheng nodded and both of them walked down the stairs together.
When Jiang Xuecheng got downstairs, he saw a short man holding on to a woman in light purple dress while creating a scene. “Don’t go, I’ll give you a treat. Didn’t you want to marry me?”
Why was that woman’s back so familiar…?
Jiang Xuecheng pursed his thin lips and walked up to them immediately. Then, he saw Su Wan’s face.
“Let go of her!”
Jiang Xuecheng pushed the short man tugging on Su Wan away while instructing coldly.
Su Wan was surprised when Luo Jian was pushed away. When she was about to say thank you, she saw Jiang Xuecheng’s cold face. Su Wan was silent and in that instant, her face turned bitter.
God, why was he present every time she embarrassed herself?
Jiang Xuecheng was strong and with his strength, Luo Jian stumbled two steps backwards.
Luo Jian lowered his head and rubbed his wrist. Then, he scolded angrily, “Are you blind? What does tugging my girlfriend have to do with you?”
Jiang Xuecheng’s handsome face instantly turned extremely cold and no one knew if he was angry because of Luo Jian’s obscene words or because Luo Jian had addressed Su Wan as his girlfriend.
His eyes swept across Su Wan and with a deep voice, responded, “Say it again.”
Jiang Xuecheng’s voice was not loud but there was an imposing manner of natural dignity and power, as if he was the king who ruled the world.
Luo Jian raised his head and saw Jiang Xuecheng’s face clearly. He was terrified from the sight and squatted on the ground.
Wasn’t this the famous young master of S City, CEO of Di Chen Group, Jiang Xuecheng?
Did he just scold the capricious and manipulative big shot?
Luo Jian broke into cold sweat. His dirty thoughts toward Su Wan earlier had disappeared in a flash. He quickly apologized loudly, “Master Jiang, please forgive me. I didn’t recognize you.”
Without waiting for Jiang Xuecheng to reply, Luo Jian dashed carelessly toward the door in a helter-skelter manner.
Su Wan was about to run too when she saw that the situation wasn’t right but was pulled back by Jiang Xuecheng.
“Do you lack a boyfriend? Aren’t you the least bit selective?”
