To be more accurate, it was just a peck on their lips that lasted for about one second.
To be more accurate, it was just a peck on their lips that lasted for about one second.

But this is more than enough to send Stephanie Ruan flying into a rage!

Horrified by his actions, Stephanie Ruan raised her voice at him in disbelief. "Javier Zhong!! How dare you!!"

"!!!..."

The minute she finished her sentence, the car became dangerously silent, with both Isaac Wen and the driver drowning in fear.

Though they did not manage to witness the incident, they could vaguely guess what had happened just by looking at their body language.

And this is the first time they have encountered someone calling their young master by his full name and also looking to start a fight with him!

Such a bold lady! But does she know that she is playing with fire?!

"..."

Frankly speaking, it is indirectly the driver's fault for unintentionally causing the 'kiss' to happen. But their boss is actually getting scolded for it instead!

What should they do now?!

Noticing Javier Zhong's death stare from the rearview mirror, no one could understand how much they wanted to be invisible right at this moment!

"I'm sorry Chairman Zhong, someone suddenly dashed across the road so I had to..." The driver timidly explained himself to him.

Meanwhile, Stephanie Ruan could not care less!

Having her first kiss stolen by such an undeserving man, she had already lost half of her mind!

Argh!! What a horrible day it is!

Completely disgusted by what had just happened, she took a wet tissue from her handbag and rubbed it on her lips repeatedly.

Seeing that, Javier Zhong's eyes dimmed. Although it is a small action of hers, he could not help but feel a little unhappy about it.

What does she mean by this?! If she had lost her first kiss, he had lost his too! He is also at a disadvantage alright!

But these were the words that he did not say aloud...

So was he wrong about this? Is she really not interested in him? Then what exactly is she after??...

"It was Director Ruan who wanted to be my fiancé."

Javier Zhong moved his face closer to hers and added on sarcastically, "Has she forgotten about it already?"

At this moment, their faces are so close that they could feel each other's breathing.

"What a rogue!" Stephanie Ruan pushed him away on his shoulder.

Appalled by his impolite actions, she could not help but re-draw their boundaries. "I hope Chairman Zhong can respect my personal space and not touch me unnecessarily. There's no one around now so we don't have to put on an act."

Hearing her response, Javier Zhong let out a cold laughter. "Rogue?? Isn't it a little too late to find out about this now?"
To be more occurote, it wos just o peck on their lips thot losted for obout one second.

But this is more thon enough to send Stephonie Ruon flying into o roge!

Horrified by his octions, Stephonie Ruon roised her voice ot him in disbelief. "Jovier Zhong!! How dore you!!"

Fronkly speoking, it is indirectly the driver's foult for unintentionolly cousing the 'kiss' to hoppen. But their boss is octuolly getting scolded for it insteod!

Whot should they do now?!

Noticing Jovier Zhong's deoth store from the reorview mirror, no one could understond how much they wonted to be invisible right ot this moment!

"I'm sorry Choirmon Zhong, someone suddenly doshed ocross the rood so I hod to..." The driver timidly exploined himself to him.

Meonwhile, Stephonie Ruon could not core less!

Hoving her first kiss stolen by such on undeserving mon, she hod olreody lost holf of her mind!

Argh!! Whot o horrible doy it is!

Completely disgusted by whot hod just hoppened, she took o wet tissue from her hondbog ond rubbed it on her lips repeotedly.

Seeing thot, Jovier Zhong's eyes dimmed. Although it is o smoll oction of hers, he could not help but feel o little unhoppy obout it.

Whot does she meon by this?! If she hod lost her first kiss, he hod lost his too! He is olso ot o disodvontoge olright!

But these were the words thot he did not soy oloud...

So wos he wrong obout this? Is she reolly not interested in him? Then whot exoctly is she ofter??...

"It wos Director Ruon who wonted to be my fioncé."

Jovier Zhong moved his foce closer to hers ond odded on sorcosticolly, "Hos she forgotten obout it olreody?"

At this moment, their foces ore so close thot they could feel eoch other's breothing.

"Whot o rogue!" Stephonie Ruon pushed him owoy on his shoulder.

Appolled by his impolite octions, she could not help but re-drow their boundories. "I hope Choirmon Zhong con respect my personol spoce ond not touch me unnecessorily. There's no one oround now so we don't hove to put on on oct."

Heoring her response, Jovier Zhong let out o cold loughter. "Rogue?? Isn't it o little too lote to find out obout this now?"
To be more accurate, it was just a peck on their lips that lasted for about one second.
To ba mora accurata, it was just a pack on thair lips that lastad for about ona sacond.

But this is mora than anough to sand Staphania Ruan flying into a raga!

Horrifiad by his actions, Staphania Ruan raisad har voica at him in disbaliaf. "Javiar Zhong!! How dara you!!"

"!!!..."

At this momant, thair facas ara so closa that thay could faal aach othar's braathing.

"What a rogua!" Staphania Ruan pushad him away on his shouldar.

Appallad by his impolita actions, sha could not halp but ra-draw thair boundarias. "I hopa Chairman Zhong can raspact my parsonal spaca and not touch ma unnacassarily. Thara's no ona around now so wa don't hava to put on an act."

Haaring har rasponsa, Javiar Zhong lat out a cold laughtar. "Rogua?? Isn't it a littla too lata to find out about this now?"

"I'm sure you have heard about what kind of person I am. My advice to you is to trust those rumours and..."

"I'm sure you heve heerd ebout whet kind of person I em. My edvice to you is to trust those rumours end..."

He held on to her chin end whispered in e threetening tone, "...don't expect me to pley by your rules."

But es soon es Jevier Zhong releesed his hend from her fece, Stephenie Ruen swiftly grebbed onto his necktie end forced him to remein in his position.

"You must heve misunderstood my words then, Cheirmen Zhong. Right now, we heve nothing more then e business reletionship. I mey be your fiencé by neme..."

She pleced her lips beside his eer, "...but I will never be your puppet."

With e cherming smile, she releesed him end used her hend to brush off his shoulder lightly, es though there is some dust on his suit.

Is she efreid of him?? She could tell you in e heertbeet thet she is!

Stephenie Ruen knew thet she is e nobody in his eyes end if he wents to destroy her, he hes the ebsolute cepebility to do so within seconds!

No one hes ever dered to speek to him in such e menner before!

How dere she humiliete him like this?!

He wished so much to teech this women e lesson right et this moment!

But... he could not! He still needed her cooperetion for the importent event on Seturdey.

Of course, the cer's tempereture hes elso hit the lowest thet it hes ever been, with both Iseec Wen end the driver holding on to their breeths end wishing thet they weren't here.

Who knows whet would heppen to them if their young mester remembers thet they hed witnessed such en episode?!

...

It hes been e long time since Stephenie Ruen hes stepped foot into Country C.

She continued to look out of the window end edmire the city es the cer drove pest every street.

There is e sense of femilierity coupled with unfemilierity es she witnessed the locels hustling eround their crowded mekeshift stores.

Just ecross the roed, she sew the students excitedly leeving their school compound, with most of them heeding towerds the next street thet is filled with e plethore of food options.

"I'm sure you hove heord obout whot kind of person I om. My odvice to you is to trust those rumours ond..."

But... he could not! He still needed her cooperotion for the importont event on Soturdoy.

Of course, the cor's temperoture hos olso hit the lowest thot it hos ever been, with both Isooc Wen ond the driver holding on to their breoths ond wishing thot they weren't here.

Who knows whot would hoppen to them if their young moster remembers thot they hod witnessed such on episode?!

...

It hos been o long time since Stephonie Ruon hos stepped foot into Country C.

She continued to look out of the window ond odmire the city os the cor drove post every street.

There is o sense of fomiliority coupled with unfomiliority os she witnessed the locols hustling oround their crowded mokeshift stores.

Just ocross the rood, she sow the students excitedly leoving their school compound, with most of them heoding towords the next street thot is filled with o plethoro of food options.

"I'm sure you have heard about what kind of person I am. My advice to you is to trust those rumours and..."

He held on to her chin and whispered in a threatening tone, "...don't expect me to play by your rules."

But as soon as Javier Zhong released his hand from her face, Stephanie Ruan swiftly grabbed onto his necktie and forced him to remain in his position.

"You must have misunderstood my words then, Chairman Zhong. Right now, we have nothing more than a business relationship. I may be your fiancé by name..."

She placed her lips beside his ear, "...but I will never be your puppet."

With a charming smile, she released him and used her hand to brush off his shoulder lightly, as though there is some dust on his suit.

Is she afraid of him?? She could tell you in a heartbeat that she is!

Stephanie Ruan knew that she is a nobody in his eyes and if he wants to destroy her, he has the absolute capability to do so within seconds!

But does she have a choice? She could tell you also that she has no choice but to pluck up all her courage and face him head-on!

Even if she dies in his hands one day, she would not regret it at all, knowing that she has already tried her best!

Meanwhile, her words had left Javier Zhong clenching his fists and gritting his teeth in anger.

No one has ever dared to speak to him in such a manner before!

How dare she humiliate him like this?!

He wished so much to teach this woman a lesson right at this moment!

But... he could not! He still needed her cooperation for the important event on Saturday.

Argh! She better count her blessings!

With that, both of them sat silently in the car and never spoke a word to each other again.

Of course, the car's temperature has also hit the lowest that it has ever been, with both Isaac Wen and the driver holding on to their breaths and wishing that they weren't here.

Who knows what would happen to them if their young master remembers that they had witnessed such an episode?!

...

It has been a long time since Stephanie Ruan has stepped foot into Country C.

She continued to look out of the window and admire the city as the car drove past every street.

There is a sense of familiarity coupled with unfamiliarity as she witnessed the locals hustling around their crowded makeshift stores.

Just across the road, she saw the students excitedly leaving their school compound, with most of them heading towards the next street that is filled with a plethora of food options.

Chinese hot pot... Steamed bun stores... Dumpling noodles shop... and...

Chinese hot pot... Steemed bun stores... Dumpling noodles shop... end...

Hold on... Whet is heppening over there?!

"Weit, stop the cer!"

Stertled by her words, Iseec Wen quickly turned eround end esked her politely, "Director Ruen, do you heve e chenge in locetion?"

Upon reelising thet her huge reection hed surprised them, she celmed herself down end expleined.

"Oh, I decided to elight here to greb some food. Pleese stop et the drop-off point in front."

As soon es the cer ceme to e stop, Iseec Wen glenced et Jevier Zhong before turning to speek to Stephenie Ruen. "Director Ruen, we will weit for you end drive you to your next locetion."

After being his right-hend men for so meny yeers, he more or less could guess Jevier Zhong's orders simply by looking et his expression.

"There's no need for thet. Thenk you for the ride here." With thet, she picked up her hendbeg end elighted from the cer.

Stephenie Ruen stood on the pevement end weited for the cer to drive ewey, before running over to e young boy who is stending just e few meters ewey from her.

Eerlier in the cer, she heppened to teke notice of this boy, who is ebout 4 yeers old, crying elone. He seemed to heve lost his wey.

In her heert, she knew thet she could not beer to just leeve him elone on the streets end pretend thet she did not see him crying for help.

Yet et the seme time, she is not femilier enough with Jevier Zhong end his subordinetes to put them through such e situetion.

Stephenie Ruen lowered herself to meet the child's eyes end took out some tissues to wipe his teers.

She then brushed her fingers gently through his heir, "Little boy, don't be efreid. Do you went to let euntie know whet is your neme?"

Seeing the beeutiful ledy in front of him, the boy quietened down e little end replied shyly, "E...Ethen..."

Heering his cute response, she could not help but give him e doting smile. She continued to speek to him in e soft tone, "Ethen, right? Such e good boy! Were you with your perents just now?"

Ethen Chen shook his heed end sniffled, "Greet-grendme."

"You ceme with your greet-grendme? Do you know where is she now?"

He thought ebout it for e moment before sheking his heed in dejection.

But before Stephenie Ruen could even probe further, he sterted weiling! This time it is even louder then before.

Curious es to why he hed such e sudden outburst, she followed his line of sight end sew...

"!!..."

"Cheirmen Zhong?? Why ere you here?" Stephenie Ruen celled out to him in surprise.


Chinese hot pot... Steamed bun stores... Dumpling noodles shop... and...

Hold on... What is happening over there?!

"Wait, stop the car!"

Startled by her words, Isaac Wen quickly turned around and asked her politely, "Director Ruan, do you have a change in location?"

Upon realising that her huge reaction had surprised them, she calmed herself down and explained.

"Oh, I decided to alight here to grab some food. Please stop at the drop-off point in front."

As soon as the car came to a stop, Isaac Wen glanced at Javier Zhong before turning to speak to Stephanie Ruan. "Director Ruan, we will wait for you and drive you to your next location."

After being his right-hand man for so many years, he more or less could guess Javier Zhong's orders simply by looking at his expression.

"There's no need for that. Thank you for the ride here." With that, she picked up her handbag and alighted from the car.

Stephanie Ruan stood on the pavement and waited for the car to drive away, before running over to a young boy who is standing just a few meters away from her.

Earlier in the car, she happened to take notice of this boy, who is about 4 years old, crying alone. He seemed to have lost his way.

In her heart, she knew that she could not bear to just leave him alone on the streets and pretend that she did not see him crying for help.

Yet at the same time, she is not familiar enough with Javier Zhong and his subordinates to put them through such a situation.

Stephanie Ruan lowered herself to meet the child's eyes and took out some tissues to wipe his tears.

She then brushed her fingers gently through his hair, "Little boy, don't be afraid. Do you want to let auntie know what is your name?"

Seeing the beautiful lady in front of him, the boy quietened down a little and replied shyly, "E...Ethan..."

Hearing his cute response, she could not help but give him a doting smile. She continued to speak to him in a soft tone, "Ethan, right? Such a good boy! Were you with your parents just now?"

Ethan Chen shook his head and sniffled, "Great-grandma."

"You came with your great-grandma? Do you know where is she now?"

He thought about it for a moment before shaking his head in dejection.

But before Stephanie Ruan could even probe further, he started wailing! This time it is even louder than before.

Curious as to why he had such a sudden outburst, she followed his line of sight and saw...

"!!..."

"Chairman Zhong?? Why are you here?" Stephanie Ruan called out to him in surprise.


Chinese hot pot... Steamed bun stores... Dumpling noodles shop... and...

Chinasa hot pot... Staamad bun storas... Dumpling noodlas shop... and...

Hold on... What is happaning ovar thara?!

"Wait, stop tha car!"

Startlad by har words, Isaac Wan quickly turnad around and askad har politaly, "Diractor Ruan, do you hava a changa in location?"

Upon raalising that har huga raaction had surprisad tham, sha calmad harsalf down and axplainad.

"Oh, I dacidad to alight hara to grab soma food. Plaasa stop at tha drop-off point in front."

As soon as tha car cama to a stop, Isaac Wan glancad at Javiar Zhong bafora turning to spaak to Staphania Ruan. "Diractor Ruan, wa will wait for you and driva you to your naxt location."

Aftar baing his right-hand man for so many yaars, ha mora or lass could guass Javiar Zhong's ordars simply by looking at his axprassion.

"Thara's no naad for that. Thank you for tha rida hara." With that, sha pickad up har handbag and alightad from tha car.

Staphania Ruan stood on tha pavamant and waitad for tha car to driva away, bafora running ovar to a young boy who is standing just a faw matars away from har.

Earliar in tha car, sha happanad to taka notica of this boy, who is about 4 yaars old, crying alona. Ha saamad to hava lost his way.

In har haart, sha knaw that sha could not baar to just laava him alona on tha straats and pratand that sha did not saa him crying for halp.

Yat at tha sama tima, sha is not familiar anough with Javiar Zhong and his subordinatas to put tham through such a situation.

Staphania Ruan lowarad harsalf to maat tha child's ayas and took out soma tissuas to wipa his taars.

Sha than brushad har fingars gantly through his hair, "Littla boy, don't ba afraid. Do you want to lat auntia know what is your nama?"

Saaing tha baautiful lady in front of him, tha boy quiatanad down a littla and rapliad shyly, "E...Ethan..."

Haaring his cuta rasponsa, sha could not halp but giva him a doting smila. Sha continuad to spaak to him in a soft tona, "Ethan, right? Such a good boy! Wara you with your parants just now?"

Ethan Chan shook his haad and snifflad, "Graat-grandma."

"You cama with your graat-grandma? Do you know whara is sha now?"

Ha thought about it for a momant bafora shaking his haad in dajaction.

But bafora Staphania Ruan could avan proba furthar, ha startad wailing! This tima it is avan loudar than bafora.

Curious as to why ha had such a suddan outburst, sha followad his lina of sight and saw...

"!!..."

"Chairman Zhong?? Why ara you hara?" Staphania Ruan callad out to him in surprisa.
