Chapter 23 – Battle With the Male Lead
“They wouldn’t be able to get in at all!” Li Xiao shot him a look.
Did he think that the neighborhood security was full of herbivores?
Duan Shu Tong smiled, “Then what about Miss Lin Man Man?”
Li Xiao’s fire was squashed in an instant.
Lin Man Man was his fiancée. If his fiancée could not enter his house, then that would simply be a joke within their circle.
“Lin Man Man is your fiancée, she definitely has even more right to go look for you, but you are not willing to see her. And now, you and Miss Pei have no relationship with each other, but you directly block her front door, do you not have a guilty conscience?”

It was indeed really selfish, and moreover, a double standard.
“She is mine! Why can’t I take her back?” Li Xiao strongly asserted, not willing to relent.
Duan Shu Tong nodded and quickly dialed Lin Man Man’s phone number right in front of Li Xiao: “Miss Lin, Li Xiao was injured in Lin Nan Province, can you come over?”
Li Xiao reached out, wanted to grab his phone. “What are you telling her to come over here for?! I’m not injured!”
Duan Shu Tong evaded his grab and did not speak, but over the phone came Lin Man Man’s voice: “You are my fiancé, if you got injured, then of course I am going to go over. Where is the injury? Is it a serious injury?”
Li Xiao: “…” He was already so angry that he did not want to talk.
The driver, who had listened to the entire course of events, shivered.
Duan Shu Tong smiled, “His brain is broken, and the medical equipment in the county cannot keep up, so it is better to return to Yan City for treatment.”
[T/N: DST, you savage! I like. XD]
Lin Man Man: “Then I will set out right away.”
Li Xiao hurriedly shouted: “No need to come over, I will have Xiao Wang send me back!”
He gave Duan Shu Tong a meaningful look. For the love of Buddha, don’t let Lin Man Man come. He was really afraid of getting entangled with her.
Duan Shu Tong’s gaze was cold. He pointed at the car.
“Get in the car right now and drive towards Yan City.”
Since there was no way to stop Lin Man Man from coming, Li Xiao could only glare at Duan Shu Tong with baleful eyes as he got in the car.

After the car drove out of the district, Duan Shu Tong stood in contemplation for a while. Then he sent a WeChat message to ask Pei Ruo Wei: You are not safe here. Li Xiao came once; he can come a second time. Why not change places?
Pei Ruo Wei: He’s gone?
Duan Shu Tong: He’s gone for now.
Pei Ruo Wei: Then I will go downstairs now. Let me help you solve your problem first and then we can talk about this.
Very soon, Pei Ruo Wei came walking down the stairs slowly. She took every step carefully. Her hair was brushed up in a ponytail and she wore an ankle-length dress. She looked tall and thin.
Her clear brows were stained with a touch of sadness, and her skin glowed like pearls in the sun.
She looked like a fairy. No wonder Li Xiao would like her.
She saw Duan Shu Tong and she was stunned for a moment, but then she smiled lightly, “You have changed a lot.”
It was not only his appearance, but also his temperament and the look in his eyes.
Duan Shu Tong also smiled, “I’m concentrating on my career right now. This time, you have to help me.”
Pei Ruo Wei nodded, and then gave him a heads-up, “I won’t necessarily be able to design the effect that you want. I can only give it a try.”
But Duan Shu Tong objected to her words.
In the original book, Pei Ruo Wei was very talented in design. She has not been involved in designing for skin care products before, but it basically shouldn’t be a problem for her.
Duan Shu Tong was very confident about this.
“No problem.” He led Pei Ruo Wei towards the Spring and Autumn Hall. “Since you left the Li family business, do you have any plans to find another job?”
Pei Ruo Wei bowed her head and smiled bitterly: “Let’s talk about it later.”
Translations by Vanilla Muse.
Many of the companies in Yan City had connections with the Li family and were not allowed to hire her. She had no choice but to hide in her hometown for the time being, and try to relax in the meanwhile.
Obviously, it would be better if she could find a secure job.
“If you don’t mind it, why don’t you come to our company? I’m really short on people right now. When you come to our company, you can help me out. Our company’s treatment is good, and it’s close to you. One move, two gains*.”
[*T/N: One move, two gains = Chinese version of getting two birds with one stone.]
Duan Shu Tong really wanted to hire her. The Li family did not cherish this kind of talent. Receiving her in the Spring and Autumn Hall would be a great boon.
Duan Shu Tong’s attitude was sincere and Pei Ruo Wei could see that he was not hiring her for emotional reasons. Her heart wavered at his offer.
It’s just… she touched her abdomen. She hadn’t figure out whether to keep this little life or not.
