Bei Mingfan froze for a moment, before he looked at her calmly and smiled.
“Miss Sheng only few people would reject Zhongxia, you also know that with your qualifications and age you do not have an advantage in this circle. To put it bluntly, it is already an exception that Zhongxia is willing to sign you.”
“Thank you for the compliments.”
Her expression did not changed, as she added.
“It’s just that having just jumped out of a pit of fire, I need to be cautious. Thank you for taking time to meet with me, and I’ll take this contract and proposal back with me to read it properly.”
Bei Mingfan smiled quite interestingly.
“That’s fine, then I’ll wait for your reply.”
He stood up and buttoned his suit.
“Miss Sheng the point will determine the final height, since you have to choose to start over you might as well, choose the best platform. Don’t you think so?”
Sheng Qiao nodded and smiled naturally.
“You are right.”
When the two walked out of the coffee shop, Bei Mingfan asked her.
“Miss Sheng, shall I give you a ride?”
“Thanks but no, I’d like to walk on my own.”
Bei Mingfan didn’t force her, he just nodded his head and with a smile turned away. Sheng Qiao looked at the blue sky, before he took out his hat and mask. She then put them on and strolled slowly toward her house.
In winter, the streets were less crowded and no one would pay attention to a girl loitering on the street. When passing by a clothing store window, Shen Qiao looked at it for a few moments before pushing the door in.
The shopkeeper greeted her immediately, Sheng Qiao waved her hand to indicate she wants to roam by herself. She went back and forth picking two padded jackets, she then fished out her phone and called. The other end quickly picked her call, Sheng Qiao then happily said.
“Mom, do you like gray or blue?”
“What are you doing?”
“Buy a padded jacket for you.”
“Ohh, spend that money for what? It’s not like I don’t have clothes to wear, clothes in the city are expensive so don’t buy indiscriminately, mom doesn’t need them.”
“Of course you have to wear new clothes for New Year’s Eve, I’ll be back in a few days.”
“Just come back, but don’t buy any clothes.”
“Okay, okay, got it.”
After hanging up the phone, she handed the two jacket to the shopkeeper.
“Wrap them up together.”
Counting the time, there was one week before the New Year.
While the civil servants were still on vacation, Sheng Qiao followed Qiao Yu to run a few trips to the court to sign some documents that needs to be signed, and the procedures that should be done were completed, now they only need for the verdict next year.
Shen Qiao found the largest suitcase, and packed her luggage, she then book a flight for the next morning. After packing up, she looked at the beautifully wrapped gift box on the bed and pursed her lips before she finally dialed Qiao Yu’s number.
Once connected, Qiao Yu was surprised as soon as the call was connected.
“I was looking for you, and you called.”
The tacit understanding between siblings has also emerge today.
Sheng Qiao was in a much better mood.
“What do you want from me?”
“I have something for you, is it convenient for you to come to me later?”
“Convenient, convenient. Well…. I have something for you too.”
“Okay, then you come to my law firm later”
“Can I….. go straight to your house later? I have something else going on in the… afternoon.”
“That’s fine, I get off at six.”
“Uh-huh, see you tonight.”
After spending her afternoon mentally preparing herself, she also practice a long natural smile in front of the mirror. It was almost evening when Sheng Qiao went out with the gift.
It was already dark by the time she reached the neighborhood and the light of Qiao Yu’s house were already on. She bit her lip and approached step by step, suppressing the emotions surging in her heart. Standing at the door, she took a deep breath before finally ringing the doorbell.
She ready the expression to face her mom and dad, but the result it was Qiao Yu who open the door.
“You’re here, come in and sit down.”
Seeing the gift in her hand, he was surprised and said.
“You brought a gift?”
The room was brightly lit up, the TV was blaring loudly but Qiao Yu was the only one in the living room. Sheng Qiao was a little disappointed but still said with a smile.
“This is a new year’s gift for your parents. Thank you for helping out solve such big problem.”
“Didn’t I tell you, duty calls. May parents are out for a walk and will be back in a few minutes.”
Qiao Yu took the gift bag in her hand, and put in the coffee table. He then poured her a glass of water, seeing her a little restless he felt a little uncomfortable so he asked her.
“Do you want some fruit?”
“No, it’s okay. You said you had something for me, what is it?”
Qiao Yu winked at her as he got up and took out a document from the closet. In a yellow leather bag, he untie and untangled the thread, inside contains the final judgment of the termination of the contract.
Sheng Qiao looked at the words written on it and froze for a long time, before she abruptly look up at Qiao Yu.
He was laughing as he said.
“No need to wait for next year.”
Sheng Qiao blinked as tears came rushing, in the next moment she went flying and hug Qiao Yu.
Qiao Yu was stunned and frightened at the same time as he staggered on his steps and raised his hand, not knowing whether he would hug back or not. He was trying to comfort her when the door clicked open, Father Qiao was pushing Mother Qiao inside the room.
Their eyes relatively fall in unison to the girl in his arms.
Qiao Yu: “….”
Mom, dad listen to me.
He pushed Sheng Qiao.
“That, my parents are back…”
Then they heard Sheng Qiao cry even harder.
Dad, really, I did not, you do not look at me with that look, your son did not do anything…
Qiao Yu unable to take it any longer spoke up.
“Sheng Qiao, if you don’t let go and explain, my dad is going to come over with a stick and beat me up.”
The girl in his arms finally sobbed and let go of him.
She bowed her head, wiped her tears with the back of her hand and said in a sobbing voice.
“I was just too excited to see the verdict and couldn’t control it for a while. I’m sorry.”
Father Qiao thought that the name Sheng Qiao sounded familiar.
He took out his phone and searched.
Oh, it’s a celebrity.
