Chapter 37 – Sales Surge
“Ruo Wei, come back with me!”
Pei Ruo Wei was unmoved and extremely indifferent: “You have a fiancée. We have already broken up.”
Li Xiao was overjoyed in his heart, “Are you jealous?”
Pei Ruo Wei: “…” Your thoughts are like a shallow fart.
She was thinking about how to shoo Li Xiao away, when she suddenly heard the sound of footsteps behind her, and a clear voice entered her ears: “Li Xiao, before I didn’t know you could be this despicable.”
Pei Ruo Wei turned her head, and her eyes lit up, “Young Master Duan.”
Seeing the change in her expression, Li Xiao became even angrier inside his heart. He was at odds with Duan Shu Tong before, and now the hatred between them was even greater.

In his eyes, Duan Shu Tong was a despicable villain! Duan Shu Tong separated him from Ruo Wei, and swindled Ruo Wei to come to this place in the middle of nowhere, in a place where even birds don’t come to defecate. This method of retreating in order to advance was really good.
“What did you come here for?” He asked with a dark and calm expression.
Duan Shu Tong completely ignored him and only said to Pei Ruo Wei: “You helped me a lot before. I’m here to express my gratitude and to invite you to eat a meal together.”
Pei Ruo Wei did not intend to be recompense for her help, but in this situation, Duan Shu Tong’s appearance undoubtedly gave her hope.
“No!” Li Xiao interrupted her. “Duan Shu Tong, don’t think that I can’t read your thoughts. Today, I came here to bring her away from here.”
Duan Shu Tong pretended that Li Xiao was farting and pulled out his cell phone.
Upon seeing this, Li Xiao sneered, “Lin Man Man is on the crew, closed off from the outside world, and she won’t be able to come out at all for a while.”
Duan Shu Tong almost laughed. He gave Li Xiao a strange look, dialed a number on his phone, and then turned on the speakers.
“Duan Shu Tong?” A man’s voice came through from the phone’s speakers. Li Xiao’s face turned completely dark upon hearing that voice.
Duan Shu Tong smiled and said, “President Lin, excuse me [for disturbing you]. I have something to discuss with you.”
Li Xiao glared at him fiercely. He didn’t expect that Duan Shu Tong would change tactics this time from calling Lin Man Man to calling her older brother!

Who didn’t know that Lin Huan, the heir to the Lin family, was a siscon? If Lin Huan really knew of Pei Ruo Wei’s existence, then he would definitely not let Li Xiao off easy.
For the first time, Li Xiao felt that his identity as the heir to the Li family was not easy to utilize at all.
Lin Huan asked in surprise: “What might be the matter, Young Master Duan?”
Duan Shu Tong looked at Li Xiao and slowly said: “It’s about Miss Lin Man Man…”
Li Xiao quickly let go of Pei Ruo Wei’s arm and rigidly pinned Duan Shu Tong with his gaze.
Duan Shu Tong was very satisfied with Li Xiao’s conceding attitude. It also made Pei Ruo Wei completely give up on Li Xiao.
Pei Ruo Wei had never noticed that the Young Master Li, who has always been aloof and arrogant, has such an embarrassing side.
It was a freaking* disillusionment.
[*T/N: Yes, the author did indeed use a euphemism for the F word. Lol.]
Lin Huan didn’t know the undercurrent surging here. Still confused, he asked: “Man Man? Did something happen with her?”
With Duan Shu Tong’s gaze on him, Li Xiao had no choice but to go downstairs and leave. Before leaving, he gave Duan Shu Tong a vicious look.
Pei Ruo Wei breathed a sigh of relief.
Duan Shu Tong responded with a smile: “Miss Lin Man Man is your company’s most popular actress. I want to talk to you about a collaboration.”
“No.” Lin Huan directly hung up the phone.
He had a very bad impression of Duan Shu Tong, and he didn’t believe his nonsense at all.
Duan Shu Tong was not surprised at all. Anyway, he never had any intention of getting Lin Man Man to endorse his product.
It was just a tactic to frighten Li Xiao off.
Seeing Pei Ruo Wei’s apologetic gaze, Duan Shu Tong couldn’t help but say: “If Li Xiao can come here once or twice, then he can come again a third and forth time. You really don’t want to consider changing residence?”
Pei Ruo Wei shook her head and sighed: “He can find me no matter where I go.”
Duan Shu Tong pondered for a moment, and then inspiration struck.
He didn’t have any contacts to inquire about these things. Xi Duan was definitely more adept than him in this area. So why don’t he ask Xi Duan for help?
