Chapter 640: Update 22
Qi Yusen coldly hissed, “You can use those lame excuses when you explain yourself to the Qi family. Let’s wait and see if they’ll listen. You can’t even do this right and you got caught by them. It’s useless to talk reasons with me. I’m not that easy to convince.”
“I got it, brother,” Jun Yexuan said, “I’ll be more careful next time.”
“Next time?!” Qi Yusen shouted, “If I find you sneaking into her room again, you will become an ex!”
Jun Yexuan, “…”
Qi Yusen’s unforgiving face forced Jun Yexuan to look over to Qiao Qing for help.
Qiao Qing gently coughed and selectively looked past his stare, “I’m going to sleep.”
Jun Yexuan, “…”
Could things get harder for him? Even his wife refused to help him out now?
For the next few days, Qiao Qing continued to diligently make her perfume.
Qi Yusen and Jun Yexuan also gave up on the perfumer Queen.
They merely waited silently for the day of the competition. Since the ranking no longer mattered, they’ll just have to let Qiao Qing go through with the process.
These days, despite Qiao Qing saying she didn’t mind, Gong Yi couldn’t forgive himself. Towards her, he stopped being so shameless and over the top.
In the blink of an eye, it was time for the night cruise.
This afternoon, Gong Yi came to the perfume mixing lab before anyone else did.
Gong Yi stared at the silhouette in the lab and gently coughed, “Let’s go back earlier today so we can attend the party.”
Qiao Qing was a little surprised, “Are they all going?”
Gong Yi knew who she referred to and simply said, “I haven’t asked.”
Qiao Qing then mumbled, “Then, ask them first. If they go, I’ll go. If they don’t go, I won’t go.”
Gong Yi nodded but didn’t go call right at that moment. He glanced around her desk and the lab before he picked up a glass bottle. He read the label and his gaze turned astounded, “The oil from a Spiritual Cotton Flower?”
Qiao Qing nodded.
Gong Yi’s brows jolted up and down, “To make your perfume?”
Qiao Qing nodded again, “Yes.”
Gong Yi, “…”
Zu Lu on the side chimed in, “Ah, I told Ms. Qiao that the flower cannot be used to make perfume but she refused to listen. There’s nothing I could’ve done.”
Gong Yi rubbed his nose and affectionately smiled at Qiao Qing, “It’s okay. It doesn’t matter how you place at the competition. I’ll help you.”
Qiao Qing, “…”
After Qiao Qing was done, Jun Yexuan and Qi Yusen came over. When they saw Gong Yi inside, their eyes narrowed.
Gong Yi tossed up his hands, “I didn’t do anything to her. I only came to deliver some clothes to her.”
He then pointed at the gift box on the table, “It’s better to dress formally for tonight. This is the gown I asked a designer to make just for Qingqing.”
Jun Yexuan snickered, “You think the Jun family is bankrupt? Or do you think the Qi family cannot afford to buy a dress? Why would you need to prepare a gown for her?”
He then pulled Qiao Qing into a hug, “The gown I made for you is at home. Both your brother and I approved it. Let’s go tonight to relax. After all, Gong Yi doesn’t need you to place high in the competition. So there’s no need for you to work so hard for him. Just go through the process.”
Gong Yi, “…”
His lips twitched and he couldn’t help but ask, “Is that how you instruct your employees to save costs?”
Jun Yexuan snapped around his head and chuckled, “You’re treating her like she’s an employee?”
