Chapter 70: Ignorant

Ji Shiting looked at her coldly, walked past her and went downstairs, not hiding his dislike for her.

Xie Siqi’s darkened, However, she still couldn’t help herself from staring at the man’s back as he left.

She saw the light glint of a smile in Ji Shiting’s eyes when he walked out of the study room. Besides women, who else could make him smile like that.

Furthermore, on that day at 1912 Clubhouse, he had seen a photograph of a lady.

Xie Siqi didn’t mind that the man had always been this cold to her because he treated everyone the same way. Yet, there was a woman who could make him an exception now?

“Ms. Xie, the chairman is still waiting for you in the restaurant,” Uncle Jin reminded her.

“Okay.” Xie Siqi regained her senses and smiled. “Sorry for forgetting my manners.”

Grandpa Ji was having soup when Ji Shiting walked into the restaurant.

“Why didn’t you talk to Siqi for a bit longer?” He put down his spoon and smiled. “Siqi is a good girl. Although she’s one year older than you, it’s not a problem as long as you like her.”

Ji Shiting sat down across from him and said, “Is that what she wants?”

“Don’t overthink it. Who said it was for you?” Grandpa Ji snorted. “Siqi is filial, and she’s willing to talk to me. Do you think everyone’s as unfilial as you?”

Xie Siqi also showed up at the restaurant after Grandpa Ji said that. She smiled and said, “Grandpa Ji, Shiting, what are you guys talking about?”

“Ms. Xie.” Ji Shiting smiled and said, “Grandpa is getting old yet he’s joking about you and me. I apologize on his behalf. You’re like half a sister to me, so don’t worry. I don’t think I’m interested in you.”

This man’s tone was full of respect, but each and every word was a merciless rejection.

Xie Siqi clenched her fists. Her entire face turned pale.

However, she couldn’t let her emotions get the better of her. She glared at Grandpa Ji and said, “Grandpa Ji, what nonsense are you spouting? In my heart, you and Shiting are my family.”

“Okay, it’s my fault.” Grandpa Ji smiled, but shot an irritated look at Ji Shiting.

This kid really didn’t know how to appreciate favors!

“Please have a seat, Ms. Xie.” Ji Shiting smiled as if nothing had happened. “Uncle Jin, you can serve the food in the kitchen now.”

“At once, Young Master,” Uncle Jin answered.

During lunch, Grandpa Ji and Ji Shiting would talk to each other about the company.

Xie Siqi was unusually quiet, but she kept sneaking peeks at the man opposite her.

Perhaps it was due to convenience for lunch, Ji Shiting unbuttoned his shirt and rolled up his sleeves, showing his firm and smooth arms.

The man always looked aloof and distant when he was dressed. However, rolling up his sleeves made him appear more at home.

Xie Siqi’s heart pounded faster than it had ever been, seeing how relaxed he was.

She took a sip of the wine, trying to suppress her desire.

At this point, Ji Shiting put down his cutlery and wiped his lips with a napkin.

Uncle Jin immediately handed Ji Shiting his jacket.

“You’re leaving already?” Grandpa Ji was a bit surprised.

“I have a video conference in a bit.” Ji Shiting took his jacket and glanced over at Xie Siqi. “Please enjoy yourself, Ms. Xie. I’ll be leaving.”
