Chapter 146: Air Stewardess
After a day had passed, it was finally Wednesday. Yang Chen grudgingly welcomed the day of the business trip.
While eating breakfast in the morning, in a rare event, Lin Ruoxi spoke a few words. However, she was simply instructing him about the work arrangements he had to do when he reached there. As for words like ‘have a safe journey’ or ‘wish you all the best’, this woman still wouldn’t say such things.
Lin Ruoxi’s secretary, Wu Yue had already arranged everything. It was a 9AM flight, they would reach Hong Kong around lunch time, and would be received by Hong Kong’s Muyun Corporation.
As for Zeng Xinlin, after finding out that Lin Ruoxi wasn’t personally making the trip, he sent Changlin Media’s Vice Chairman, Lu Tao, for the trip instead. Zeng Xinlin would be overseeing their trip from Zhonghai. Like Lin Ruoxi, he would be waiting for the observatory talks to end before Muyun Corporation would come to Zhonghai to sign the contract. He even phrased it nicely, saying that this meant ‘unconditional trust’ in them.
This change angered Yang Chen to the point that his teeth were itching. This ‘senior’ guy s clearly going against me! He is going wherever Lin Ruoxi goes, what is he playing at! Is he trying to stick to her like gum!?
However, Yang Chen wasn’t the CEO, so he didn’t have the guts to tell Lin Ruoxi that he had decided not to go at the last minute. Otherwise, she would shoot that icy-cold, bone-piercing gaze at him, and she might really freeze someone to death with that gaze. Thus, he could only brace himself to go into battle.
Someone had once said that there was no man who was afraid of his wife in this world, there were only men who loved their wives. Yang Chen felt that these were definitely self-consoling words of a man who was afraid of his wife… After he parked his car in the carpark of the airport, Yang Chen pulled a small leather suitcase and arrived at the domestic departure hall.
The natural lighting was good inside the majestic airport lounge, and Yang Chen easily managed to find Mo Qianni who arrived earlier.
She was wearing a pink shirt, a white jacket, and a blue and white embroidered muslin skirt, with red peep-toe sandals for her fair, slender legs. Her originally waist-length hair had been cut much shorter, and she had a pair of large, light-colored sunglasses on.
Even though a part of her pretty face was covered, she still managed to provoke gazes from a large number of men in the resting area. For some women, it’s only necessary to look at her temperament to identify her beauty, this was also the reason why Yang Chen managed to recognize her just from a glance.
“Department Head Mo, have you eaten?” Yang Chen nonchalantly gave her a lackluster greeting, and walked towards Mo Qianni.
Mo Qianni shot a glance at him, but the expression of her eyes couldn’t be seen due to the shades. She calmly nodded, and didn’t say a word.
Yang Chen heaved a sigh of relief. It looked like Mo Qianni was only treating him a little colder than before, but wasn’t intending to be at heads with him. After thinking for a bit, they were going to Hong Kong for business this time, and it wasn’t Mo Qianni’s style to let her personal matters interfere with business.
At this point, a slightly short and plump middle-aged man walked over from an inconspicuous corner, smiling like Maitreya. He wore a dull gray suit and red tie, and stretched a hand out towards Yang Chen, “You must be Mr. Yang, I am Changlin Media’s Lu Tao, and have been awaiting you.”
Yang Chen shook his hand simply, “I’m not a plane, what are you waiting for me for?”
Lu Tao had wanted to say a few more courteous words, but he didn’t get angry even after getting walled by Yang Chen, “Since Mr Yang’s a straightforward man, I’m going to dispense with courtesies. I hope we can cooperate happily on this trip to Hong Kong.”
Mo Qianni saw this, she creased her brows but didn’t remained silent.
Lu Tao also brought a young female assistant, her looks were average, but she had a slim waist and round buttocks. As there was still some time before boarding, the two of them greeted Yang Chen and then left to go somewhere else, as for what they were going to do, only they knew.
After waiting for the two of them to leave, Mo Qianni suddenly said to Yang Chen in an indifferent tone: “You shouldn’t speak to Lu Tao like that. This time, Changlin Media is our partner in this collaboration. Even if you don’t like Zeng Xinlin’s people due to some personal reasons, you have to maintain a cordial facade on the surface.”
Yang Chen took a seat on a soft chair, he smiled and said, “Just like how you treat me?”
“I don’t understand what you’re saying.” Mo Qianni quickly turned away.
“Let me put it to you this way, whether we collaborate or not, I don’t care at all, it’s best if that fellow with the surname Zeng gets lost.”
“But other people care! This time’s collaboration affects the status of us Yu Lei, Changlin, and Hong Kong’s Muyun Corporation’s place in the country, and even the world!” Mo Qianni discontentedly said.
Yang Chen nodded, “That’s right, you know that, and I know that too. Zeng Xinlin should know that even better. Thus, even if we’re against cooperating with each other due to our personal grudges, the general plan has been laid out for us. It won’t change because of our feelings. Anyway, I’ve already gone up against that Zeng guy, why act as if nothing’s the matter? If I were to treat his people cordially, they would only think that I’m going to try something sneaky. Isn’t that right, Miss Mo?”
Mo Qianni didn’t continue speaking, she considered Yang Chen’s perspective and it seemed to make sense. However, she naturally refused say that out loud, so she just sneered and ignored Yang Chen.
15 minutes later, Lu Tao and his assistant slowly walked back. The female assistant’s young and pimply face carried a blush. It seemed like she had just sprayed a lot of perfume on her body, as the smell was rather strong.
Mo Qianni was used to seeing such matters, she didn’t care much about this, and just stood a little further.
Yang Chen moved closer to Lu Tao. Smiling, he said: “Chairman Lu, wasn’t that too quick? If you factor out the time it took for preparation and clean up, it seems like you shot at the same speed of a machine gun!”
Lu Tao had been poked in his sore spot. Unhappiness flashed across his face, but years of working in commerce had already trained his facade. Zeng Xinlin had also told him not to stoop to the level of this man called Yang Chen before he had left on the trip, so he immediately laughed and said: “How could I be as vigorous as a young man like Mr Yang? I’m old, I can’t do it anymore.”
They chatted on and off for a while before they heard the announcement. They then passed through the security checks and entered the waiting room.
After waiting for half an hour, the four of them started to board the plane. Yang Chen specially glanced at Mo Qianni’s seat number. As expected, it was right next to his. Thus, he shot a pleased smile at the woman. Mo Qianni saw it, but only bit her lip and said nothing.
Since it was the business trip of a large company, their tickets were in business class. Thus, they didn’t even need to queue and simply walked through the business class passage to the plane.
Just as they were about to reach the entrance of the plane, a slender but busty air stewardess wearing an azure uniform with white stripes had already started bowing and welcoming them from afar.
Upon hearing this voice, Yang Chen found it a little familiar. Looking carefully after walking closer, he paused his steps with an expression of disbelief.
The beautiful air stewardess, who had just been wearing a warm smile, also froze in shock. Disbelief flashed across her pretty eyes, then several parts of pleasant surprise and shyness. Opening her tender, pink lips, her fair face was stained with a blush.
“My beloved little Princess An Xin, are you in the middle of cosplaying?” Yang Chen didn’t know to laugh or to cry, this air stewardess in front of him was actually An Xin who had a night of intimate entanglement with him, and also brought him on a trip to the police station. After they went their separate ways that day, she had never contacted him again. He had initially thought that he would never come across her again like the other women he had in his life, but it was unexpected that this rich man’s daughter had become an air stewardess!
An Xin recovered her senses. Upon seeing the man who had taken away the most important first time in her life, she had a strange feeling. Before she had separated from him, she had thought that she could forget him with ease. However, right now, facing him in person, An Xin suddenly had the urge to rush forward and hug him. However, taking the circumstances into consideration, she simply smiled nonchalantly, “Mr Knight, you should enter first.”
When Mo Qianni, who was following behind Yang Chen, saw this scene, she could clearly feel the ambiguous relationship between the two of them. Seeing Yang Chen acting abnormally close with another beautiful girl, a wave of disgust rose in her heart. With a cold sneer, she quickly entered the cabin first, going by the principle of keeping her eyes clean.
Lin Tao and his little secretary didn’t think too much about this. Perhaps in their view, all kinds of male and female relationships were possible.
An Xin noticed Mo Qianni’s eccentricity, and couldn’t help but chuckle towards Yang Chen, “Mr. Knight, you seem to have many princesses.”
“Her?” Yang Chen bitterly laughed, “She’s indeed a princess, but I reckon she’s one from the opposing country.”
There were fewer people in business class than expected, of over dozens of seats, there were only two more passengers excluding Yang Chen’s group of four. There reason being there were many flights towards Hong Kong, as for people on vacations, it was also off season, so it was not at all surprising.
What made Yang Chen rather surprised was, An Xin was actually the chief stewardess. During the pre-flight safety broadcast, she was the broadcaster for both Mandarin and English, which also meant that she wasn’t an amateur working for fun, she was a professional air stewardess.
After a boring half an hour of waiting, the airplane finally took off and went up to the skies.
After finding out that the business class cabin wasn’t even half full, Mo Qianni nimbly switched her seat to the corner furthest away from Yang Chen, clearly displaying her unwillingness to deal with him. Lu Tao and his little secretary sat together in a more covert corner. The two of them were acting intimately with each other. There would occasionally be some movement from their hands down there, causing the little assistant’s face to flush red, like she was really in love.
After some time, An Xin pushed a cart out of her working area, she wore a professional smile as she provided drinks to the two passengers ahead.
When she got to Mo Qianni, Mo Qianni coldly ordered a glass of water, then closed her eyes and slept. Lu Tao, on the other hand waved his hand, he didn’t want anything, and continued chatting with his little sweetheart.
An Xin walked over to Yang Chen, and maintained a business-like tone as she asked Yang Chen what he wanted.
Yang Chen didn’t say anything, but he kept looking at An Xin’s exquisite body line wrapped in that stewardess uniform. That one night they had together in that hotel kept surfacing in his mind, causing him to have a burning impulse. This proved that uniforms had extremely strong powers of attraction.
“Lecher, don’t keep staring at me like this, I still have to work.” An Xin blushed, and spoke in a soft and displeased tone.
Yang Chen stretched out his hand to pull on An Xin’s soft and fair hand, “Isn’t your job providing service to passengers? Right now, I don’t need beverages, I need you, what should I do……”
Being grabbed on by that big hot hand, An Xin felt there was a deer bumping around in her heart. After that one night of wildness, the sensitive her who tasted that ecstatic feeling had been suppressing her blazing emotions inside. Although she was able to control herself, the sudden appearance of Yang Chen made her heart unsettled again.
Ripples surfaced in that pair of moist eyes. An Xin stooped down and whispered a few words into Yang Chen’s ear with her orchid-like breath. She immediately pulled her cart away with a blush and hid back in the working compartment.
Yang Chen drew in a cold breath. Even though his body had been through hundreds of battles, upon hearing what that little demoness had said, he couldn’t help but swallow his saliva because he felt excited.
