Forensic Doctor, Moe Wife - Chapter 866
“You’re exaggerating. You should find a boyfriend.”
“It’s true.” The secretary had on a very sad expression. “And Madam, I heard that this Yashang Group reception is for the president. I wonder what will happen with the President there. I really want to see him fight off all the rivals.”
People coming for Master Xiao?
For what? To suffer?
Master Xiao has become a father. If he keeps a low profile, he won’t be Master Xiao anymore?
Mu Qiqi was not worried at all. “Don’t worry about it. I’m tired. I’m going to sleep.”
The secretary looked at Mu Qiqi’s text message. Why did she feel that Mu Qiqi was not sick at all? Instead, she seemed very happy?
Then, the secretary told Sheng Xiao about Mu Qiqi’s text message over the phone.
Sheng Xiao was already on his way to the reception when he heard it from the secretary. He could not help but find it interesting.
Because of the rain, Jianchuan had entered the night early. Although it was almost summer, the drizzle brought a chill to it.
The guests of Dynasty Hotel were entering the hall one after another.
Local businessmen gathered in groups of three or five to discuss this aggressive Song Bozhi.
“I haven’t even seen him yet, but I’ve already heard the newspapers proclaiming that he’s going to become Jianchuan’s number one within a year. I’ve never seen such an arrogant person. Even Sheng Xiao didn’t boast like this…”
“He’s clearly here for Sheng Xiao.”
“I heard that the CEO of this Yashang Group is also a big shot. Who knows, he might really be able to beat Sheng Xiao. After all, Sheng Xiao has been keeping a low profile for the past two years. Perhaps he really isn’t able to be so active anymore?”
“The last time Sheng Xiao kept a low profile, Zhongteng wasn’t even established yet.”
Wave after wave of discussions made this cocktail party extremely lively.
After that, it was Song Bozhi who took the stage. However, he looked imposing. Just by looking at his cold face, people felt like it wasn’t good to get close to him. Although he wasn’t very tall, standing there and looking at him, he had indeed the look of a big shot.
Only a few people present knew what kind of character Song Bozhi had.
His social skills were clearly amazing. In just a short while, he had made a good impression among the guests.
When he was abroad, he had interacted with the royal family. This made people feel that he was out of their reach.
Not long after, Jin Bo brought Song Qiaozhi and Sheng Kai into the venue. Naturally, no one had heard of such a person. However, Song Bozhi introduced him to them. “This is my father, Song Jiang.”
That was Jin Bo’s real name, Song Jiang.
Other than the people around Deputy Mayor Liang, almost no one had seen Jin Bo’s activities, so they thought that he had returned from abroad. What they did not know was that he had already stirred up a lot of trouble in Jianchuan.
The most surprising one was still Sheng Kai.
As a member of the Sheng family, Sheng Kai was actually by Song Jiang’s side.
After falling out with the Sheng family, he suddenly took over Changrong Electronics, and now he was with the Song family.
What… was going on?
Song Qiaozhi generously hugged Sheng Kai’s arm without any hesitation, which fueled a lot of gossip.
“He’s someone with a family. Why didn’t he bring Miss Gu with him?”
“The two of them have been rumored to be on bad terms. It’s not surprising that Sheng Kai isn’t willing to bring her out.”
Sheng Kai heard this and his back stiffened. However, Song Qiaozhi comforted him. “There’s no need to care about these things.”
In the eyes of others, the fact that Song Jiang had brought Sheng Kai with him made it pretty obvious that it was on purpose, to rile up the Sheng family.
No one knew how Sheng Xiao would feel when he saw the insufferably arrogant Sheng Kai.
The venue of the banquet was filled with toasts. Even the annual award ceremony had never been so lively.
In the luxurious hall, the sound of music concealed the surging undercurrents.
At 7:15 p.m., a black Bentley stopped at the entrance of the hotel. Then, Xu Che opened his umbrella and got out of the car to escort Sheng Xiao.
Many guests were standing by the window on the second floor. When they saw Sheng Xiao appear, they thought to themselves that the climax was about to come. It was a good show to watch.
Occasionally, raindrops would fall on Sheng Xiao’s shoulder. Xu Che gently flicked them away and the two of them entered the hotel together. Then, the guests began to discuss among themselves.
“I heard that the young bride of the Sheng family is sick, and very much so. Seeing Sheng Xiao appear without a female companion, it must be true.”
“I still think that CEO Sheng is more pleasing to the eye. His height is a blessing.” The women present could not help comparing Sheng Xiao and Song Bozhi’s appearance. “With CEO Sheng’s temperament, he’s obviously better than CEO Song.”
Sheng Xiao did not have the time to care about the gossip, because when he went up to the second floor, he saw Song Bozhi coming up to him.
“I’ve long heard of CEO Sheng’s reputation. Seeing you today, you’re indeed extraordinary.” Song Bozhi reached out his hand, but Sheng Xiao clearly did not intend to return the gesture.
“CEO Song, you’re too polite. Compared to the recent highlight in the Song family, I can’t help but feel inferior.”
Song Bozhi withdrew his right hand. He was not angry. He just wiped it with a handkerchief and said, “CEO Sheng, you’re really not polite.”
“To a talented student like CEO song, being polite is a humiliation to you.”
When Song Bozhi heard this, he laughed. He felt like he had met his match.
However, when no one was looking, Song Bozhi approached Sheng Xiao and whispered, “Why don’t you let Sister-in-law out?”
“Really? I don’t think she is. I think that you have hidden her away. Actually, you don’t have to be so afraid. After all, I would never lay my hands on a cute beauty.”
Sheng Xiao smiled faintly and remained unmoved. “My wife is picky. After all, not every occasion is worth attending.”
“But I’ve admired her for a long time. I’ve heard that she can play with a scalpel to perfection. If there’s a chance, CEO Sheng, you must introduce us.”
To others, this sentence was already a very blatant provocation.
If it were anyone else, they would have long become angry from embarrassment. However, this man was as steady as Sheng Xiao was. Don’t forget, he was once just like Song Bozhi. He was frivolous and deliberately provoked other people’s weaknesses.
Would he not be able to handle it?
He calmly tidied up his sleeves and then replied, “Then you have to put in some effort, because she only likes to appear in places where there are dead people.”
After everyone heard this, there was only one word to describe what they felt—Respect!
With President Sheng’s ability to adapt to all kinds of situations, basically, no one had ever successfully challenged him.
“It’s really interesting to chat with you.” Song Bozhi showed great interest and did not admit defeat. In any case, it was just a small test to see if this legendary man was really that difficult to deal with.
Now, it seemed like the rumors weren’t lies!
“However, President Sheng, it’s best not to be too forceful. Otherwise, look, your second brother wouldn’t have come to the Song family so eagerly.”
