Qiao Xi turned around.
The man seemed to be subduing her with every step he took, and she was unable to dodge in time.
She was instantly pushed to a narrow corner.
She slowly raised her eyes and looked at the mans deep light brown eyes.
The corners of his mouth curled up into a meaningful smile.
He lowered his head and looked at her affectionately.
Qiao Xis heart trembled as a familiar feeling surged into her heart.
She lowered her head in a panic, but the scorching aura reached her body and caused her to be unable to ignore it.
Gu Zheng narrowed his eyes and pressed his arm against the wall beside her, closing in the distance between them.
His voice was hoarse and gentle.
Qiao Xis breathing almost stopped, and her mind went blank.
“Gu… Gu Zheng”
She reached out to separate their bodies and refused to let him approach her.
The man lowered his eyes and snorted.
His tone was filled with ridicule.
“Not many people dare to call me by my name.
Its really strange that youre so bold the first time we meet.
Do we know each other”
Qiao Xi pressed her hands against his chest, and they were burning hot.
She hurriedly withdrew them, and her breathing became hurried.
Could it be that Gu Zheng had seen through her identity
At this moment, a photo appeared on the big screen of the banquet hall.
It was the precious sapphire necklace.
Gu Zheng asked slowly, “Miss Bai, do you like that necklace”
Qiao Xi knew about that necklace.
Gu Zheng was here for that necklace.
She kept feeling that Gu Zhengs gaze was too scorching as he kept staring at her face.
She could not help but suspect that Gu Zheng had already seen through her identity.
She pretended to be calm and said, “Its alright.
President Gu, do you like it”
“I like it very much.
I want to buy it for someone,” Gu Zheng said without hesitation.
Qiao Xi subconsciously asked, “Who are you giving it to”
With that, she wished she could slap herself.
However, since she had already asked, she could not take back her words.
She could only quietly wait for Gu Zhengs answer.
The man chuckled with a trace of roguishness.
“For my wife.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Song Shijing had already placed a bid for it and handed it to Gu Zheng as instructed.
He opened the luxurious velvet box and weighed it carefully.
He asked softly, “Miss Bai, do you know my wife”
Qiao Xi looked at him with a puzzled expression.
She gulped and said with a smile, “I dont know her, but Ive heard that Mrs.
Gu is a gentle and elegant talented woman!”
Perhaps Gu Zheng did not expect Qiao Xi to praise herself like this, because he was stunned for a few seconds and did not say anything.
Then, he said with a subtle expression, “Miss Bai, where did you hear the rumors”
Qiao Xi: “…”Am I not a gentle and elegant talented woman
Gu must be a kind-hearted and successful woman!”
Gu Zheng shook his head and smiled.
Qiao Xi was slightly angry and frowned.
“Then what kind of a woman is she”
As soon as she finished speaking, Gu Zhengs low and hoarse voice sounded.
Gu is a delicate little kitten.
She always does bad things behind my back.
Even when shes angry from embarrassment, shell still be angry at me.”
When he spoke up to this point, he glanced meaningfully at Qiao Xi.
Qiao Xi: “…” This bastard had indeed recognized her a long time ago and was even deliberately pretending not to know how to tease her!
Since he was pretending, she would continue acting with him.
She gritted her teeth.
“In that case, Mrs.
Gu is a lively and cute girl!”
Gu Zheng nodded, his eyes filled with ridicule.
“Yes, and shes very narcissistic.”
Qiao Xi forcefully endured her anger and said fiercely, “This necklace is quite nice, but its just too cheap.
How is it worthy of that lively, loving, kind, elegant, and gentle woman, Mrs.
Gu If President Gu wants to give her a gift, he should give her a more expensive one!”
Gu Zheng raised an eyebrow.
“Miss Bai, why dont you give me an idea”
Coincidentally, a Chinese zither appeared on the big screen at this moment.
She pointed at the screen.
“President Gu, what do you think of this Nine Heavens Chinese Zither”
Gu Zheng looked up.
He knew that Mrs.
Gu knew how to play the violin, but he did not know that she knew how to play the Chinese zither.
Did she really want this violin, or did she say so because it was expensive
However, Gu Zheng had never cared about money.
As long as Mrs.
Gu liked it, so what if it was 50 times more expensive
Song Shijing quickly went to bid for the Nine Heavens Chinese Zither.
Gu Zheng asked softly, “Miss Bai, what do you think”
Qiao Xi was silent.
She knew that Gu Zheng did not care about the price of that necklace, but this ancient zither was truly too expensive.
Even so, Gu Zheng bought it without saying anything.
He was truly too prodigal.
