The Little Princess’s Married-in Boyfriend (40)
When Bai Weiwei finished dancing with the man, she shot a broad smile at the man and said something to him.
Then she walked away.
That saunter, that back, that calm backwards glance–they were blatantly sultry, yet still made people happy1 being seduced by her.
Many men at the scene began to grow restless.
Their gazes clung to her body.
Bai Weiwei walked over to the area for drinks.
Picking up a glass of red wine, she lifted her gaze and saw Xu Menggui standing not far away, leaning against the curtains, holding an empty glass as he looked at her coldly.
Bai Weiwei’s smile remained unchanged. She lifted her wine glass to him in a provocative toast.
Then she downed the glass, turned, and left.
Xu Menggui watched her figure as though looking at his greatest enemy2, his emotions intense enough to consume people.
Bai Weiwei seemed to have completely cast him out of her mind.
In the blink of an eye, she hooked up with another man.
He was a tycoon in the electronics industry, with great strength.
That man looked at her like a wolf eyeing meat, his eyes glittering with greed.
“I remember that your business has recently been declining,” the man sounded out carefully.
Bai Weiwei swirled the wine glass, her brows furrowed, and sighed. “My business is not only in decline, it also declared bankruptcy. I had no choice but to come out and ask for help.”
After speaking, she gently held the glass and took a sip of wine.
This action caused the electronics industry tycoon’s breathing to grow unsteady.
He hurriedly said, “I can help. How much do you need?”
Bai Weiwei laughed. “This favor is too big. I have nothing now, and I have no way of paying you back.”
The man chuckled and couldn’t help but tug her hand. “Isn’t there still you?”
A blatant transaction.
It happened from time to time.
Nobody thought this sort of transaction was surprising.
Bai Weiwei frowned, remaining composed. She couldn’t help but move her fingers to prevent him from capturing them.
But the man, taking advantage of the slight give, nestled closer. “The Bai family’s little princess, now down and out to this extent. Only I could give you shelter.”
Bai Weiwei’s expression was dark.
The man, thinking things were in his favor, immediately grasped her hand. “Come with me, and in the future you won’t have to worry about glory and splendor. Even if the Bai family is gone, I can support you.”
Bai Weiwei struggled for a while before resigning herself to her fate. “Then first make an initial deposit of 10 million to my account.”
The man immediately said, “I’ll make the deposit, but I need your down payment.”
Bai Weiwei thought for a moment, nodded, and motioned for him to come closer.
The system notified her. “The male lead is arriving in 5…”
Bai Weiwei was just about to gently place a kiss on the man’s cheek.
System: “The male lead is arriving in 4… 1, he’s here.”
The kiss hadn’t yet fallen.
When a fist struck the man’s face.
The man screamed.
Xu Menggui had already emerged from behind Bai Weiwei. He calmly rolled up his sleeves and quickly hurried forward.
He reached out to grab the man by the collar and beat him fiercely.
His normally gentle and elegant appearance now looked demonic. The expression in his eyes was cruel enough to make people shudder in fear.
The people around, seeing his attitude on the matter, didn’t dare to step up to stop it.
Lest they be remembered by Xu Menggui.
The man, half-dead from the beating, was tossed aside.
Xu Menggui calmly unrolled his cuffs and looked back at Bai Weiwei.
Bai Weiwei felt as though she were being stared at by a starving wolf.
A chill ran down her back, but she could only maintain her posture. Biting her lip, she said, “Xu Menggui, have you gone crazy?”
Xu Menggui gazed at her with dark eyes for a long moment. He suddenly let out a cold laugh. “You can be bought with just 10 million?”
