“Alright, let’s sit down and eat.”
Pei Zhenghui, a sly old fox in the corporate world, could tell that Tang Xiaoyu had some opinion about his family.
He glanced at her briefly before instructing Pei Shishi and Zhou Zhuoyang to sit down.
“Okay, Daddy.” Pei Shishi smiled and then pulled Zhou Zhuoyang to take their seats opposite Pei Ge and Tang Xiaoyu.
Once everyone was seated, the nanny served the dishes.
The big table was filled with food in that instant.
Not only were the dishes on the table plentiful, they were expensive and rarely seen in normal hotels as well.
Never mind the price, one look at the food-laden table, and Tang Xiaoyu could say with a snort that Pei Zhenghui’s family really had the style of an upstart.
“What’s wrong, Xiaoyu? Is our family’s cooking not to your liking?” After being ridiculed by Tang Xiaoyu earlier, Pei Shishi was looking for a chance to get back at her and eyed Tang Xiaoyu with much hate.
She was never fond of Tang Xiaoyu, who was just like Pei Ge with her princess-like attitude.
Pei Ge was far from that most-loved princess in the past, though, and was now just an average woman.
Tang Xiaoyu, meanwhile, remained a high and mighty princess.
“Heh…” Tang Xiaoyu chuckled mirthlessly as she looked at her. “Sister Shishi sure takes notice of me.”
“Of course, you are our family’s guest. I have to host you,” she replied gently.
If the looks in their eyes could take form, then the others at the table would see bolts of volatile lightning clashing in the air.
However, even if they could not see anything, the rest could tell that the two were on the verge of exploding.
“Ke!” Pei Zhenghui coughed lightly as he glanced at Pei Shishi.
Pei Ge pulled at Tang Xiaoyu’s arm and softly urged her to back off.
It was only then that the two reluctantly withdrew their swords.
“Stop talking; let’s finish eating and go back.” She felt extremely tired, and because of Tang Xiaoyu, she did not get to ask why her second uncle’s family had invited her family over for dinner.
“Qie.” Tang Xiaoyu rolled her eyes and twitched her mouth. She shot Pei Shishi a look but kept mum.
The table finally quieted down once the two stopped hurtling insults at each other.
However, this silence was short-lived.
“Ge Ge, your company should’ve taken on a new project, right?” Pei Zhenghui asked in a very harmonious voice once he finished drinking his soup.
At his question, Pei Ge, who was eating fish, almost choked on its bone.
She spit out the fish bone before replying, “I don’t know.”
“How can you not know? Aren’t you CEO Ji’s secretary?” he gently asked with a doting smile.
“Second Uncle, it is precisely because I am CEO Ji’s secretary that I don’t know. If I was still in the Planning Department, I would know,” she replied plainly.
She was now filled with suspicion. Why would her second uncle ask her such a question?
“Oh… I see.” He nodded as his face scrunched up in deep thought.
Seeing his expression, she did not ask further.
She already felt that today’s meal was weird enough.
However, her choosing not to ask question did not mean that others would not.
“Ah Hui, what’s the matter?” Zhang Manhua asked with concern when she saw his pensive expression.
“Aiiii!” He sighed heavily before looking at the mother-daughter pair. “Our company is clashing with Chenguang Real Estate over a project again.”
Pei Ge’s grip on her chopsticks tightened at his words.
“Ah? What to do, then?” As a housewife, Zhang Manhua of course did know the intricacies of the corporate world and did not realize the implication in his words, only thinking that he was in a pickle.
“That’s what I actually want to request from our Ge Ge: to check Chenguang Real Estate’s take on this project is.” He helplessly shook his head as he cast a look in Pei Ge’s direction.
With that, she finally understood why her second uncle’s family had suddenly invited them over for dinner.
“Ge Ge, if you know, share it with your second uncle,” her mother turned to her and urged her lightly.
When she heard her mother’s words, she really did not know whether to laugh or cry.
She truly did not know the details of this project, but even if she did, she could not say them.
If she did, she would become a corporate spy, and her future could be ruined by such a label.
“Auntie, you don’t understand. Never mind that Ge Ge doesn’t know, even if she does, she can’t tell Uncle Pei about it, either, or she’ll get fired.” Tang Xiaoyu chuckled as she placed her chopsticks down to stare coldly at him.
Indeed, this old rascal is as bad as before. A dog really can’t change its fur.
“Ah, that serious?” Zhang Manhua was stunned by her words and then shot him a disbelieving look.
Since the matter was so serious, why would he ask her daughter such a question? Could he not know the seriousness of his request?
For the first time, she felt that he, who had always been kind to them, made her feel alien and… scared.
“Auntie, this is not as serious as Tang Xiaoyu made it seem. We’re just casually chatting here. Besides, Ge Ge didn’t say anything.” Pei Shishi revealed a gentle smile in a bid to comfort Zhang Manhua.
“Heh, not that serious? I think you all invited Ge Ge over here for a meal with ill intention,” Tang Xiaoyu retorted coldly as she slammed her chopsticks down on the table with a loud pak .
Uncle Pei and Auntie Zhang are such kind people; how can they have such evil relatives?!
I really don’t know how Auntie Zhang and Ge Ge have survived all these years!
