I Want a Lifetime with You Chapter 24

A sharp glint flashed across Fu Chengyan’s eyes as his gaze landed on Shi Nuan’s face. Shi Nuan clearly looked overjoyed, yet she was saying the complete opposite of how she felt!

His eyes scanned her face as he continued, “Alright, then how about this Zhang Daqian painting? Or maybe this brush?”

As Fu Chengyan introduced several items to Shi Nuan, she took a look at each of them before eventually deciding on the brush. Shi Yunsheng enjoyed calligraphy and was good at it himself.

Giving him this calligraphy brush as a gift was perfect. Moreover, this brush was probably not as expensive as some other antiques here.

Shi Nuan was a director in Fucheng, but she was still young and had many expenses to cover ever since she moved out. Furthermore, thanks to her fight with Fu Xicheng, Shi Nuan could rely on nobody else but herself at the moment.

She had to save up to buy a car and house. Even if she didn’t have a man, she could at least still rely on herself!

Fu Chengyan saw through Shi Nuan’s thoughts. After she chose her gift, Fu Chengyan called Zhou Zheng and Mr. Qin back in. “Wrap this up for Ms. Shi!”

Mr. Qin looked towards the direction in which Fu Chengyan had pointed and froze. “This…”

“Is there a problem?” Shi Nuan asked when she saw how stumped Mr. Qin looked. “Money isn’t a problem.”

Mr. Qin took a deep breath and said with a pained look on his face, “Not at all, Ms. Shi. If this is what you want, I’ll have it packed immediately for you.” He then gave Fu Chengyan another glance.

Yet, Fu Chengyan didn’t even notice the man looking at him. His eyes were fixated on Shi Nuan. Mr. Qin had no choice but to pick up the brush and have his staff pack it up.

Shi Nuan just realized that she hadn’t inquired the price of the brush. “Erm… How much for the brush, Mr. Qin?”

Just as Mr. Qin was about to speak, he saw Fu Chengyan staring coldly at him. He chest tightened and he quickly let out a nervous laugh, “Don’t worry! It doesn’t cost much!”

Fu Chengyan retracted his gaze then looked at Shi Nuan from above, giving her a slight sense of oppression. “Let Zhou Zheng take care of the bill,” he said with a clear voice. “Since I’ve just helped you a great deal, do you not intend to return the favor, Ms. Shi?”

“…” Shi Nuan looked up towards Fu Chengyan and noticed how seriously he was gazing at her, as though he wasn’t joking at all. She suddenly felt pressured. “Then shall I treat you to a meal?”

Fu Chengyan smiled again. “Since you insist, then I’ll graciously accept,” he said and walked outside.

Shi Nuan froze for a moment, feeling like something wasn’t right. Was I insisting? ”I haven’t paid yet, Mr. Fu!”

“Go on ahead with him, Ms. Shi. I’ll take care of things here since I still have to stay behind and help him look around!” Zhou Zheng said thoughtfully.

“Then…” Shi Nuan still looked hesitant.

“I’ll come over with your gift later!”

Since Zhou Zheng had said it, there was nothing else Shi Nuan could do. So she followed Fu Chengyan out in a daze.

Only after Shi Nuan had left did Zhou Zheng turn to Mr. Qin and say, “Please keep whatever Mr. Fu had asked for. As for Shi Nuan’s item, just name any price and put it on Mr. Fu’s tab.”

Zhou Zheng felt like he had given his all to do his job well as Fu Chengyan’s assistant. He was even clear about his boss’ thoughts.

“But…” Mr. Qin still hesitated. “That brush is…” He thought for a moment and looked at Zhou Zheng. “How is this Ms. Shi related to Mr. Fu?” That brush was extremely pricy!

Keeping his expressions in check, Zhou Zheng said with a smile, “It’s better if you don’t ask about things you shouldn’t know. Are you intending to pry into Mr. Fu’s private life? Alright, hurry up and pack the brush!”
