'Private Meeting?' Lily raised an eyebrow at the woman's words. She closely examined Mu Qingling who was looking straight at Zhuo Jingren. The woman was flowing with confidence, her back was straight and poised, as if she had a lot of practice perfecting the proper posture.
"I don't remember you," Zhuo Jingren said before he turned to Lily. "Let's go change your clothes."
"Alright." Lily nodded before she flashed a smile at Mu Qingling. Then Zhuo Jingren led her to the restroom. His hand rested on her waist, pulling her closer as if he was guarding her.
"I can see that you have a lot of women on your coattails, Mr. Zhuo," she whispered at Zhuo Jingren's ears as she tilted her head so she could see the look on Mu Qingling's face behind them. The woman was still looking at them and even smiling but her eyes were sending a different message in Lily's way.
On the other hand, Zhuo Jingren was surprised to hear Lily call him Mr. Zhuo. He immediately wondered if Lily was angry. "Don't worry, I only have you in my eyes, " he said, turning his head to face Lily. As they were already standing very close to each other, this action only cause their faces to be inches apart and they could feel each other's hot breath.
"You better." Then her hands made its way to his necktie, caressing it before she gently pulled it, tugging Zhuo Jingren towards her.
"I tend to be very protective of what is mine Mr. Zhuo," she whispered before she tiptoed, brushing her lips against his. Lily flashed a smile before she grabbed the bag which contained her outfit from stoic Daohu who was forced to eat dog food as he stood quietly next to the entrance of the restroom waiting for his boss and lady boss. Then Lily strutted inside the restroom, with a smile still plastered on her face.
For some reason, seeing Zhuo Jingren freeze then blush was making Lily happy. Is it possible that she was developing a weird obsession over making her own husband blush? Lily let out a giggle and shook her head before she headed into a changing cubicle.
After changing into the dress that Zhuo Jingren had prepared for her, she went to the vanity counter in the restroom and took out her make-up kit that she carried in her purse. She touch up her make-up and paid extra attention to her eyes. She gave herself a smoky look which accentuated her amber eyes.
After she was satisfied with her make-up, she stepped back and gave herself a once-over in the mirror. She was wearing a daring and fitting long sleeve black dress with an elegant high neck. The dress had a sexy oval cut out on one side revealing a fair bit of skin near the waist. There was also a seductive long slit on the same side that showed off Lily's long legs. For her feet, she was wearing a pair of nude open toe sandals that was about four inches high. It had at least seven knots on the front, firmly securing her feet in place.
Zhuo Jingren did come prepared for the night. If Lily had to make a guess, Zhuo Jingren might be asking her to do the tango dance later based on her outfit. Lily checked herself in the mirror again. Since she did not bring accessories for her hair, she decided to go for a sleek bun updo that would make her look polished and elegant.
Overall, Lily's appearance was sensual and sultry. With a smile on her face, Lily walked out of the restroom confidently.
"Stop drooling," Lily stated as she stood in front of Zhuo Jingren.
"You… You look ravishing." Zhuo Jingren's eyes were dark, his voice deeper than usual as he swallowed another mouthful of saliva. Her body was curved in all the right places and she was not too thin like some models were. She looked like she had stepped out from a magazine. She could definitely grace billboards too. Zhuo Jingren felt his heart palpitating and regretted choosing this sexy dress for her.
"Thank you," Lily coyly said before she hooked arms with Zhuo Jingren. "Let's go?"
Zhuo Jingren really wanted to forgo the dance and just whisk Lily home to bed right now but that would ruin the date that he had painstakingly planned. He could only put all those thoughts away for now.
He nodded and led the way to the ballroom arrived on the thirteenth floor. When the doors to the ballroom opened to reveal Zhuo Jingren and Lily, all eyes were fixed on the couple and the ceremony seemed to have come to a halt. Zhuo Jingren's arrival immediately attracted the attention of some businessmen present as well who were starting to move towards them.
"Secure the area. No one is allowed to take any pictures or videos," Zhuo Jingren immediately ordered Daohu who had followed behind them. Though Lily already told him that revealing their relationship is not a problem for her. He also understood that if any pictures or videos of Lily was leaked to the media, it would attract too much attention for her. Zhuo Jingren was not the type of man who would allow other people to feast their eyes on Lily.
"Mr. Zhuo! It seems that fate is trying to make us meet each other." A sweet voice, interrupted Zhuo Jingren and Lily. The couple halted their steps and looked at the woman who was wearing a short black latin dress with a criss cross neckline, showing off her deep cleavage.
Of course, it was none other than Mu Qingling.
