Chapter 1440: Meeting at the Jewelry Store
After Qing Yan fell into Qiao Yanze’s arms, she wanted to get up. She did not expect him to grab her chin and thought that she was Cen Xi.
What did he mean?
Cen Xi despised him because he was not the young master of the Qiao family?
A trace of doubt appeared on Qing Yan’s cold and exquisite face. Suddenly, seeming to have thought of something, she pushed Qiao Yanze away and stood up from his arms.
Taking the bag holding her groceries, she scooped a bag of seawater from the seashore.
Splash! She threw the cold seawater at the drunk Qiao Yanze.
Qiao Yanze wiped the water on his face and closed his eyes, a trace of menace flashing past his handsome face. “Cen Xi, what are you doing…”
Before Qiao Yanze finished speaking, he frowned when he saw that the woman standing in front of him was Qing Yan and not Cen Xi. “Qing Yan?”
Qing Yan put down the bag in her hand and squatted in front of Qiao Yanze, meeting his deep eyes. “Yanze, I went to the washroom today after work and heard some comments from my colleagues.
“They said that Cen Xi’s boyfriend is a toyboy and that Cen Xi is talented and has many pursuers but she chose a boyfriend who does nothing. Cen Xi was furious at the time and she defended you in front of those colleagues.”
Qing Yan had roughly understood what had happened between Qiao Yanze and Cen Xi. Perhaps the gossip in the company had caused some cracks in their relationship.
Since becoming colleagues with Cen Xi, Qing Yan could see that she was a girl with ambitions, she was full of aspiration and was very talented. She naturally did not want her boyfriend to be looked down upon.
Although she was more mature than people her age, she was still a girl in her twenties. When emotions came, it was inevitable to say something that would make one uncomfortable.
“I feel that she still cares about you. She said those to make you have a better future and motivate you to develop yourself.”
Qiao Yanze had both hands on the beach. The fine sand touched his palms and that subtle and sharp pain deep in his heart spread out again when he thought of what Cen Xi had said in the car.
One could imagine what it felt like to be looked down upon by the person he loved the most.
“I can see that you care about each other very much. Don’t hurt each other’s hearts because of a small misunderstanding.”
That night, Qiao Yanze did not return to Cen Xi’s apartment.
The next afternoon, he went to an upscale jewelry store. She didn’t accept the jade bracelet he had given her last time. This time, he planned to buy a present for her.
Qiao Yanze entered the world-famous LX jewelry store. He was attracted to a bracelet which was red and inlaid with jades in the shape of stars.
“Sir, you have a good taste, This bracelet is the treasure of our store. There are only ten in the world. This bracelet means ‘Stone of Lovers’. People who wear it will be happy forever.”
Qiao Yanze looked down at the bracelet. The jade on it looked noble and elegant. Under the light, the jade reflected a bright and charming light, and it looked very beautiful.
It also matched with Cen Xi’s temperament. Her skin was delicate and fair and it would definitely look good on her.
“How much is it?”
“Sir, this bracelet is a little expensive. Why don’t you have a look at the others…”
Qiao Yanze narrowed his eyes slightly. “Why, you think I can’t afford it?”
The staff immediately shook her head. From his clothes to his noble and cool temperament, the staff could see that he was no ordinary person.
“Someone has placed an order on this bracelet. We only have this one in our shop. Sir, you’d better look at the other styles.”
Since someone had ordered it, Qiao Yanze would not say anything else.
He was going to ask the staff to show him the other styles when the store manager suddenly ordered, “Everyone go and line up at the door quickly. Second Master is here.”
The store manager stood in order with the staff at the door. Qiao Yanze looked back and saw a tall figure walking over with his secretary, assistant and bodyguard.
The man who had come in was wearing a tailored suit, his hair parted to the side neatly and there was a gentle smile on his elegant face. It seemed like he was easy to get along with.
But those who know him knew that he was a typical wolf in sheep’s clothing. His ruthlessness would not show on his face.
Qiao Yanxuan entered the jewelry store and saw a handsome and charming man sitting on a high stool at first glance.
So, Qiao Yanze had recovered. It was not like Qiao Yanxuan did not know about it. But this was the first time the two met after Qiao Yanze’s life-threatening situation. Those ugly veins on his face had disappeared and he had returned to his charming appearance.
Qiao Yanxuan stepped forward and greeted Qiao Yanze with a warm smile on his face. “Yanze, it’s been a while. I was so worried when your life was in danger.”
The store manager immediately understood the relationship between the two when he heard Qiao Yanxuan’s words.
Their jewelry store was one of the best in the Capital. Usually, many high officials and nobles would come and the store manager would hear a lot of secrets of the upper class.
For example, the head of the Qiao family had changed to the Second Young Master from the Third Young Master. The Third Young Master was kicked out of the Qiao family and had no money and power. Other than relying on the Queen and his elder sister, he had nothing else and was no different from a parasite.
Moreover, the reputation of the Third Young Master in the upper-class circle was not very good. It was said that he was expelled from the Qiao family because of a blood letter left by his mother.
This kind of high-end jewelry store was all about knowing what to say in different situations.
Feeling the tension between the two brothers surging, the store manager said before Qiao Yanze could say anything, “Second Master, the bracelet you wanted has arrived. You can have a look in the VIP room.”
The store manager shot a look at the staff, who immediately took the bracelet away.
Before Qiao Yanxuan went into the VIP room, he patted Qiao Yanze on the shoulder. “Yanze, although you are not a member of the Qiao family, we are brothers. If there’s anything you like, you can put it on my tab.”
Qiao Yanze’s expression was indifferent and there wasn’t any fluctuation of emotions. “Thank you, Second Brother. I still have the ability to buy jewelry for the time being.”
Qiao Yanxuan shrugged. “Fine, then I’ll ask the store manager to give you a discount.”
Then, Qiao Yanxuan went into the VIP room with a group of people.
The staff, who was serving Qiao Yanze, saw the look thrown by the store manager and she put away the jewelry she had taken out back into the cabinet. “Excuse me, Sir. We have to serve a VIP customer, you’d better go to another store!”
It was obvious why they were sending him off.
With Qiao Yanze’s temper before, he would not take it lying down being humiliated like that. But thinking back to what Cen Xi had said to him yesterday, his handsome face tensed as he suppressed his emotions and was silent.
He turned and left the jewelry store without saying a word. After he went out, Qiao Yanxuan came out from the VIP room. Looking at Qiao Yanze’s back, his lips curved into a faint sneer.
