Black Bellied President Dotes on Wife - Ch71.1
Humans were really strange animals. Once they’ve cultivated a habit, they would find it very difficult to change it later.
Shangguan Ning had only married Jing Yichen for such a short time, yet, when he wasn’t home for just two days, she unexpectedly felt like the house was very empty.
She had lived alone for more than four years, but had actually never felt this way.
Fortunately, she was very busy working every day, so she could somewhat neglect that kind of slightly uncomfortable feeling.
This afternoon, as she was learning how to deal with a public relations crisis and other related knowledge in the PR Department, her mobile phone’s ringtone suddenly sounded in the office.
When the call was connected, she heard the voice of a middle-aged man that sounded like he’s been through the vicissitudes of life: “Is this Xiao Ning?”
Even though Shangguan Ning hadn’t heard that voice for more than four years, she still quickly recognized it, and calmly replied: “It’s me, second uncle.”
The caller was Shangguan Zheng’s younger brother and thus Shangguan Ning’s second uncle.
“How are you doing? Second uncle hasn’t seen you since a long time ago. I don’t know what you grew up to look like now, you must definitely only be getting more and more beautiful!”
“I am very good.” Shangguan Ning’s voice was still as dull and indifferent as before.
Shangguan Hangyin heard his niece’s tone wasn’t too enthusiastic and felt somewhat awkward. He knew she was very hurt by the matter of Liyu Science and Technology in the past.
However, he quickly adjusted his state of mind and after skipping over the conventional and cordial greetings, he directly went to the point: “Xiao Ning, ah, you should soon come over to second uncle’s house. Your second aunt also misses you very much, when you visit, she will happily make you several dishes you like and we’ll assemble to eat together.”
Without a second thought, Shangguan Ning instantly refused his invitation: “She doesn’t need to. I’ve been very busy with work recently, so let’s talk about it sometime later.”
How could my second aunt think about me at all, the only thing she thinks about is money.
When she finished what she wanted to say, she wanted to hang up, but then she heard Shangguan Hangyin’s urgent tone: “Xiao Ning, don’t hang up! It’s Liyu Science and Technology, it’s currently facing a great crisis. You must help second uncle!”
No matter what, Shangguan Hangyin knows that Shangguan Ning wouldn’t idly stand when it came to Liyu technology.
Sure enough, Shangguan Ning was silent for a moment before she asked: “What’s the matter?”
Shangguan Hangyin breathed out a sigh of relief from the other end of the phone quietly relieved, however, he refused to clarify the problem. He only said: “Come to uncle’s house tonight, and I will tell you more about it. It’s not too convenient on the phone.”
Shangguan Ning’s eyebrows were tightly wrinkled at the moment. She almost couldn’t suppress the fury inside her heart. However, she still controlled her voice and calmly replied: “Alright!”
Liyu Technologies was not only named after her mother, but she had also devoted a lot of efforts to make it into what it became today. Although Liyu technology had nothing to do with her nowadays, she still couldn’t simply let it go.
After she finished work, she directly drove to her second uncle’s house.
As soon as she entered through the door, her second uncle instantly came over to welcome her and enthusiastically greeted her, while her second aunt was busy arranging some fruits and making tea.
Shangguan Ning didn’t feel happy at all, on the contrary, she had a very bad feeling.
These two people were acting so enthusiastically and cordially, they must be plotting to use her.
“Xiao Ning, come and sit down. Second aunt purposely bought your favorite cherries!” Second aunt Fang was cheerfully speaking and laughing, and seemed even closer to her than her own parents.
She had previously witnessed how quickly her second aunt changed her face. She was currently treating her like her daughter, but if she found out that she had no use, she would immediately drive her out of the house.
Shangguan Ning calmly sat down on the sofa in the living room and lightly said: “Second aunt doesn’t need to busy yourself too much, I won’t be staying for long.”
“How could that be? Aren’t you having dinner with us? Don’t you like fresh salmon very much? Your cousin already went out to buy some, he’ll be back in a moment!”
