Princess is Glamorous in Modern Day - Chapter 51
Xia Wanyuan turned around and met a pair of smiling amorous eyes.
The man behind him was very handsome. Under his high nose bridge, his thin lips had a devilish smile. The street lights reflected in his ears, and his black diamond earrings glistened.
Xia Wanyuan nodded slightly in greeting, then turned and left without the slightest change in expression.
Xuan Sheng did not urge Xia Wanyuan to stay after she left. He only stood where he was and watched her leave.
He could not help but think of Xia Wanyuan’s cold eyes when she turned around. Xuan Sheng had always hated those sour words of the scholars, but at this moment, he recalled a sentence he had once seen.
When looked at from afar, it was as if the sun was rising into the multicolored clouds of the morning. As it approached, it was as if a lotus was emitting green waves.
The beauty in the video call, the beauty he saw in the coffee shop across the street, was no match for the lights in the city, when that pair of cool eyes turned around.
Xuan Sheng had never felt that he was so interested in a woman. He really wanted to know how dazzling those ice-cold eyes were when they melted.
After a day of filming, Xia Wanyuan was a little hungry. Waves of sweet fragrance kept wafting out of the cake shop, and it led Xia Wanyuan into the cake shop.
There were not many people in the shop at the moment. Xia Wanyuan looked at the colorful cake slowly. It looked as beautiful as a work of art.
In her previous life, in the palace of the Xia Dynasty, the pastries made by the imperial chefs were also very exquisite, but the ingredients were limited, so they could not make so many flavors and styles.
Looking at the exquisitely carved castles, gardens, and small animals in the glass windows, Xia Wanyuan found it very interesting.
Seeing a cute pink piglet reminded Xia Wanyuan of Xiao Bao. She felt that Xiao Bao would definitely like this.
At that moment, a WeChat notification sounded from her phone.
“Where are you?”
Unexpectedly, it was that long-silenced black profile picture.
Ever since Xia Wanyuan returned to the capital from the production team, she no longer had to video-chat with Xiao Bao. Hence, Xia Wanyuan and Jun Shiling’s conversation stopped more than half a month ago.
“Can I help you?”
Xia Wanyuan did not know why Jun Shiling had suddenly sent her a message.
“I’ll pick you up at the entrance of the film studio complex.”
The other party replied very quickly.
Xia Wanyuan felt a little flattered. After all, she had known that Jun Shiling was very busy.
“I’m at the cake shop. I’ll be right out.”
After sending the message, Xia Wanyuan picked up a piggy cake she had just seen and chose a green and fresh-looking cake for herself.
“There are 72 pieces of cake in total. Is there anything else you need?”
The cashier packed the two cakes. Xia Wanyuan was about to scan the QR code when she suddenly thought of something. “Help me get another one like this. Thank you.” Xia Wanyuan pointed at the packed mocha mousse.
“Okay, a total of 92 yuan. Please give me your payment code.”
Carrying three small boxes, Xia Wanyuan left the cake shop.
The Jun family’s car was already parked by the roadside. The luxurious car logo attracted a lot of attention.
The chauffeur stood by the side and closed the door after Xia Wanyuan got into the car, blocking all the curious gazes outside.
In the car, Jun Shiling wore a well-tailored suit that had never changed. Just like him, the outfit was cold and reserved. Upon seeing Xia Wanyuan get into the car, he cast his deep gaze on her. “Uncle Wang said that you didn’t go home, so he came by to take you back.”
“Okay, thank you.”
Xia Wanyuan thanked him politely, but for some reason, she felt the coldness emanating from Jun Shiling deepen.
There was a distance between the film studio complex and the manor. Xia Wanyuan opened a box that contained a palm-sized Matcha Musi.
Xia Wanyuan took out a spoon, dug out a little, and placed it in her mouth. Although the cake tasted sweet, it was not greasy. The rich smell of green tea filled her mouth. The cake’s texture was very soft and melted in her mouth. With a gentle sip, she cut open the cake in her mouth.
Xia Wanyuan found it delicious and fed herself spoon by spoon.
Meanwhile, Jun Shiling was like a working machine, always dealing with important matters of the huge Jun Corporation.
“Do you want to eat this?” A box was handed to him. Jun Shiling looked up and saw the cake-like box in Xia Wanyuan’s hand.
“I think it tastes pretty good. Do you want to try it?”
Seeing that Jun Shiling was looking at her without saying a word, Xia Wanyuan thought that he was questioning the taste of the cake.
Who would have thought that Jun Shiling would suddenly approach her, and his face that was as bright as a jade tree would suddenly magnify in front of her? A familiar scent of a man’s perfume suddenly assaulted her, extremely aggressive. Xia Wanyuan held her breath and her eyes widened slightly.
Before Xia Wanyuan could finish her sentence, she felt a warm sensation on the corner of her lips.
It was rare for Xia Wanyuan to be so shocked that she stopped chewing on the cake in her mouth. Her beautiful big eyes were wide open, making one think of a deer running in the forest under the moonlight, moving and light.
Jun Shiling placed his index finger in front of Xia Wanyuan. A cake crumb the size of a rice grain was lying on the tip of Jun Shiling’s index finger. Xia Wanyuan could not help but blush. So he was helping her wipe the cake crumbs.
Looking at Xia Wanyuan’s flushed cheeks, Jun Shiling had a broken smile in his eyes. The coldness that had been exuded because of Xia Wanyuan’s politeness had finally dissipated a lot.
Jun Shiling sat back in his seat as if nothing had happened, but Xia Wanyuan felt that the atmosphere in the car was strange and was momentarily speechless.
Xia Wanyuan retracted her hand that was holding the cake box. She did not expect that a pair of jade-like hands would take the box away.
Jun Shiling, who had just been reading the documents seriously, suddenly looked up.
“Didn’t you say you wanted me to try it?”
