Chapter 26: Don't Tell Me You're Quarreling Upstairs

"Pretty much."

"Pretending to be in a relationship with you will indeed bring me a lot of benefits. What about you? Outsiders have always thought that you're arrogant and an unattainable flower. Being with me doesn't seem to bring you anything." Jiang Youyi still didn't let down her guard and voiced the doubts in her heart.

"Because being single is too troublesome. The rumors about me outside have already affected the company's operations. I don't want anyone to gossip behind my back or some ignorant woman to deliberately approach me. And you are the best shield."

When Jiang Youyi heard this, she remained silent.

"This matter will only benefit you. There's no harm in it," he said calmly.

"Not necessarily. You must have made many enemies to be able to reach your current position. I can't guarantee that I won't become a live target in the eyes of others if I'm with you now."

"Are you afraid?"

"Who wouldn't be afraid? I'm young and haven't lived enough."

"So you're not willing?"

"No, I agree." Jiang Youyi's attitude suddenly changed.

"You're still agreeing to me if you're afraid?" Lu Yunxiao was a little curious.

Jiang Youyi stood up and walked to the window. She looked at the street scenery and the crowd outside the window. "I never thought that Xu Yuning would cheat one day. His actions made me very disappointed in marriages and relationships. As for men, all men in the world are the same. In that case, it's good to work with you. At least no one will dare to disturb me in the future."

Lu Yunxiao stood behind her and listened quietly without interrupting.

"By the way, how long are the two of us going to act?" Jiang Youyi turned around and asked him.

"If you or I don't want to continue, we'll separate." His attitude was calm and cold.

"Alright, let's work well together." Jiang Youyi felt that his suggestion was very good. No one knew what would happen in the future, so she might as well take it one step at a time.

"You can't tell anyone about this, including your family." Lu Yunxiao's tone was warning.

"Alright, I promise you."

Lu Yunxiao suddenly strode up to her and reached out to her without any warning. She was so frightened that she hurriedly retreated. "You… what are you doing?" Jiang Youyi asked with a frown.

"Exchange contact information." He took the phone from her hand and forcefully scanned his QR code. After adding her as a friend and saving her number, the two of them walked downstairs one after another.

During this time, Jiang Youtian could not sit still. She wanted to go upstairs to look for Lin Feng a few times, but she was stopped by Lin Feng.

It was only when her sister came down and realized that she was calm and did not look injured at all that Jiang Youtian finally felt relieved.

"President Lu, I apologize to you on behalf of my sister."

"No need. You guys can leave."

"Youyi?" Jiang Youtian was puzzled. Why was the atmosphere between the two of them not as tense as before after coming back from upstairs?

"I apologized to President Lu and he forgave me. It's alright, Sister."

"You…" Jiang Youtian almost couldn't help but ask, "Did the two of you really kiss?" However, since there were still three men present, she could only swallow the question that was on the tip of her tongue.

"It's not what you think, Sister. President Lu… didn't make things difficult for me. We just resolved the misunderstanding," Jiang Youyi explained tactfully, knowing that her sister was worried.

Only then did Jiang Youtian relax and hurriedly pull her sister away. "Then we won't disturb you anymore. We'll leave first."

"Youtian, I've helped you a lot this time," Lin Feng said with a smile.

"President Lin, I'll remember your kindness. I'll definitely treat you to the most expensive restaurant to repay you the next time I come back," Jiang Youtian said seriously.

"Haha, then I'll wait for your feast. Don't make me wait too long."

Jiang Youtian forced an awkward smile and pulled her sister away quickly.

"Why didn't I know that you had such a disgusting side?" Wang Jiangbei looked at Lin Feng in disdain. He was referring to the time when he acted coquettishly with Jiang Youtian.

Lin Feng smiled nonchalantly. "Then I'm not as fierce as Brother Lu. He asked a young lady to kiss him without saying a word. He almost scared her to death."

Lu Yunxiao did not reply. He sat on the sofa and focused on making tea.

"Why did you bring her up?" Lin Feng could no longer suppress his gossipy soul.

"Not for a kid like you."

"Stop talking nonsense. Jiang Youyi didn't look like she did anything to you that I couldn't hear. What did the two of you say? Don't tell me you scolded each other for five minutes upstairs?" Lin Feng suddenly had an idea.
