I managed to fix the player, but I don't know how long this solution will last. I apologize for all the inconvenience caused by the change in rules on the audio file server side over which I had no control.

And Lu Li had never done these things for her!

Thinking of this, Ruan Yu could not help but feel sour.

Shi Man completely lost her patience. She leaned against the wall and closed her eyes to rest. She only hummed casually and couldn’t be bothered to speak anymore.

Seeing her like this, Ruan Yu did not have the mood to continue. Coupled with the fact that it was hot, she could not help but feel exposed to the sun. She glared at Shi Man hatefully and left silently.

After this day, Shi Man never saw Ruan Yu again, nor did she cause trouble for Shi Man.

Soon, it was the weekend. In the afternoon, the Shi family packed up and was about to go to the Lu Jun’s birthday banquet in the car that they had prepared in advance.

Shi Man was naturally in the same car as Yi Zheng. Shen Xian and Shi Zhong were in the same car, and Su Tang and Bai Xue’s car was at the back.

At that moment, there were all kinds of luxury cars parked in front of the hotel.

The Shi family’s car was lined up at the back. After waiting for a long time, the front did not move.

Seeing that the banquet was about to begin, it was very rude to be late. Shen Xian decided to bring her entire family through the cars and walk to the entrance of the hotel.

Anyway, they were only less than a hundred meters away from the hotel.

Unexpectedly, just as Shi Man got out of the car, the door of the car next to theirs opened.

Lu Li’s smiling eyes were fixed on Shi Man. “Miss Shi, what a coincidence. 1 didn’t expect to meet you here.”

Shi Man said sarcastically, “It’s quite a coincidence. It’s Chief Lu’s birthday today. I didn’t expect Young Master Lu to attend.”

Lu Li couldn’t help but laugh and shake his head. “Miss Shi, I’ve made a fool of myself. 1 actually arrived long ago, but there was something on in the army at the last minute, so I went back to settle it first. 1 only rushed over after I was done.”

Shi Man retracted her gaze and ignored him. She took the initiative to hold Yi Zheng’s hand and walked side by side with him to the hotel.

Behind her, Lu Li kept staring at Shi Man’s back.

She was wearing a simple and elegant long black gown today. This was the first time he had seen her wear such a mature dress. Coupled with the murderous aura on her body, she actually had a dangerous and seductive beauty, making him want to pluck this thorny rose in his hand.

Ruan Yu did not get out of the car just now. Instead, she chose to stay in the car to observe the expressions of Shi Man and Lu Li.

She believed that Shi Man really did not like Lu Li, but when she saw Lu Li’s infatuated gaze, her heart could not help but ache.

She couldn’t stand her fiance staring at another woman in public anymore. She raised her hand and knocked on the car door, calling him back to his senses. “Brother Li, are we going over too?”

Lu Li looked down at her and took a step back to give the car door enough space. “Come down. It’s too congested in front. We’ll walk over ourselves.”

Ruan Yu lowered her eyes in disappointment and let the chauffeur walk around to open the car door for her. Only then did she suppress the sadness in her heart and get out of the car to stand side by side with him.

No matter if Lu Li’s heart was with Shi Man or not, she could not fall out with him on such an occasion in front of so many people and on the Lu family’s home ground.

She knew that Lu Li liked obedient women, so she would continue to be obedient. As for what methods she should use to win his heart, it was not something she could do in front of him.

Chief Lu’s birthday banquet was naturally full. Lu Jun sat on the high platform. When he saw Shi Man enter from downstairs, he immediately smiled. “Chu Yue, go and invite Yi Zheng and Shi Man up.”

No matter how unwilling Chu Yue was, she did not dare to disobey him at this moment. She could only leave awkwardly.

There were so many people who came to congratulate Lu Jun today, and he had yet to receive any of them. However, after seeing Shi Man, he took the initiative to invite her up and did not conceal how important Shi Man was.

Chu Yue was angry at her teacher’s bias, but she still maintained a proper smile on her face as she walked up to Shi Man. “Miss Shi, President Yi, my teacher invites you up for a seat.”

As soon as she said this, the few people who were trying to butter up to Lu Jun were stunned for a moment.

These people had already tried their best to show their faces in front of Chief Lu just now, but they were tactfully rejected by the butler. He only said that Chief Lu was free to arrange it and would meet upstairs later.

Unexpectedly, as soon as the two of them walked into the hall, Chief Lu actually sent Chu Yue over to invite her personally. It could be seen how much Lu Jun valued Shi Man.

Everyone looked at Shi Man with burning envy.

Chu Yue watched from the side and was so angry that she almost gritted her teeth.

Yi Zheng stayed by Shi Man’s side from the beginning to the end. Coupled with Chief Lu’s high regard, they instantly became the focus of the entire venue.

When Lu Li entered, he saw everyone’s gaze on Shi Man. He narrowed his eyes and walked over. “I’m going to see Grandpa too. Miss Shi, President Yi, let’s go up together.”

Hearing how he associated with them, Yi Zheng glanced at him expressionlessly and walked up the stairs with Shi Man, not allowing her to look at Lu Li again…
