Dr. Ex Husband Wants To Remarry Me - Chapter 35
After “cohabiting” with Lu Jingyan for a few days, the weather gradually warmed up. She removed her heavy coat and changed into a thin windbreaker.
However, because their personalities were a little similar, even if they had something to say, it would be short and concise. Thus, their interactions did not change much. However, Lu Jingyan would occasionally have a fit and would tease her intentionally or unintentionally. On the other hand, Su Yanxi would refute him stubbornly. From time to time, the two of them would bicker.
Five or six people were sitting around the long table discussing a case in the conference room of the law firm, Su Yanxi quietly listened to their suggestions and everyone looked at her after they had finished speaking. Su Yanxi glanced at them indifferently, “Barrister Li, you can take over this case! Go talk to the client in the afternoon.”
“Alright, I understand.”
Su Yanxi closed the folder in front of her, “The best thing you can do now is practice. Every lawsuit has no script. There will be variables. You have to learn to stay calm in the face of danger. This labor contract case is a good example.” As she spoke, her cold gaze swept to her left. “Barrister Qi, both of them are your juniors. If you have the time, take care of them.”
“Alright, I understand.”
Right after Barrister Qi answered, the phone beside the folder suddenly rang with a pleasant ringtone. She lowered her almond-shaped eyes and looked at the caller ID. Pursing her lips, she picked up her phone and document and stood up, “If there’s nothing else, let’s end the meeting!”
After leaving the meeting room, Su Yanxi picked up the call, “Hello!”
“Old Master called to say that we’ve to go back for dinner tonight.” The magnetic voice on the other end of the phone rang and entered her ears.
Su Yanxi replied softly, “Okay, I got it.”
“What time are you getting off work?”
“I’ll come to fetch you.”
Upon hearing these words, Su Yanxi was stunned when she opened her office door, “Fetch me?”
“No… I just… Ahem…” Su Yanxi said instinctively, but she felt that there was no need to explain so much, so she pretended to cough lightly and said,” Um, I drove here myself this morning, so there’s no…”
“No one will steal your car if you leave it in the parking lot. I have an emergency here. I’m hanging up now.” Lu Jingyan interrupted her coldly. He then swiftly hung up the phone because of the nurse’s words.
Su Yanxi stared at the disconnected call and entered the office with pursed lips.
When it was almost six in the evening, Su Yanxi looked at the time and felt that it was about time to start packing. At this moment, the office door opened and Mo Bai walked in with a smile. Seeing that she had started packing, he teased, “Hey! Girl, not bad! You knew that I was coming to invite you for dinner. Are you ready to go?”
Su Yanxi looked up at him in confusion, “Hmm? Dinner?”
“Yeah! Do you still remember the last time that we talked about eating barbequed meat? It’s rare that there’s nothing urgent today. Let’s go today then!”
Su Yanxi thought about it seriously. They did talk about that so she looked at him and said apologetically, “I’m sorry, Mo Bai. I have an appointment tonight.”
“A date? With whom? Yanyan?” Mo Bai raised his eyebrows and asked curiously.
“No, it’s with the Lu Family.”
A strange look flashed past his black eyes, but the smile on his handsome face was still harmless and uninhibited, “Alright then! That Old Master Lu’s words are an order. It’s not good if you don’t go, so we can only do it in the future. However, you’ll have to treat us next time.”
“Alright.” Su Yanxi nodded with a faint smile and walked out of the office with her bag as she bantered with Mo Bai.
Just as they walked out of the law firm, a black Bentley caught their attention. The dashing figure leaning against the car door looked very tall and handsome in the sunset.
