The Male Lead’s Substitute Wife

Chapter 13 - Visiting the Chen Group (1)


Ch.13 Visiting the Chen Group (1)

Chen Xiuqi knew that Su Yaya came from a family with ordinary income. Her parents were also ordinary employees in companies, yet both of them treasured Su Yaya a lot. Perhaps their belief that daughters should be raised in riches was the reason they spent all their money on her. The original Su Yaya never suffered hardship in her youth, and her parents bought her the best and most expensive food and clothing.

In addition, Su Yaya was beautiful. She certainly grew up into an elegant and slender woman. Many people tried to pursue her, and there were others who gifted her bags, dresses, and pieces of jewelry from famous brands. Nothing that she used before was cheap.

Although Chen Xiuqi’s initial motive was finding a substitute upon meeting Su Yaya, he still had to spend quite a lot of money in order to pursue her. All the gifts he bought for her cost at least five digits or more. He couldn’t give her anything cheap that she would look upon in disdain.

It was rare that Su Yaya had bought a dress worth around 5,000 yuan. She specially sent him a message to tell him that. Chen Xiuqi was bewildered by this. Did Su Yaya change her personality?

But Chen Xiuqi didn’t know that Su Yaya’s personality didn’t change; rather, she was a completely different person.

Chen Xiuqi received a text from the bank that money was spent. He thought that Su Yaya would send him a message since she had bought a dress.

Yet, he was left waiting for a long time. One minute passed by…ten minutes passed by…twenty minutes passed by. He still hadn’t gotten Su Yaya’s message.

Chen Xiuqi’s face turned gloomy, like the sky before the thunderstorm. What was this woman doing? Was it that difficult to send him a message?

The marketing manager detected Chen Xiuqi’s gloomy face and thought that he had upset him because of his marketing plan. He carefully observed his expression and trembled in fear while talking.

Chen Xiuqi hadn’t realized that his gloomy look seriously affected the marketing manager’s behavior. He was still waiting for Su Yaya’s message as his gaze lingered on his phone screen. Another ten minutes passed by and he finally couldn’t take it anymore. He tapped on the phone screen and set a message to her.

Su Yaya carried the dress she bought and just walked to a bakery outside when she had a ding from her phone.

She saw that Chen Xiuqi had sent her a message and she hurriedly unlocked her phone and clicked on it.

Chen Xiuqi: Where did you go?

It was a simple question so Su Yaya was unable to understand how anxious Chen Xiuqi had been to receive her message. She didn’t notice that his question was basically a result of his impatience.

But Su Yaya obediently replied to his message.

Yaya: I am outside Mancosu Bakery. I’m hungry so I’m about to buy something to eat.

Once she sent the message, Su Yay placed her phone away and walked in the bakery.

Mancosu Bakery isn’t really a famous brand but their matcha cakes are delicious. Before Su Yaya transmigrated, she enjoyed eating Mancosu’s cakes. But, they were expensive. Just a small piece of cake was about 30-40 yuan. She could only bear to buy a piece of it on the day she receives her monthly salary.

Su Yaya stood in front of the counter and looked at the different types of cakes on display. Each one of them was so pretty and delicious. She really wanted to taste each of them. Previously, she had tried matcha and chocolate flavored cakes. This time, she will pick another two flavors; in the end, she chose strawberry and coffee flavored cakes.

After she chose her cakes, she chose a seat by the window. With a desert knife in her hand, Su Yaya was about to savor her treat when she heard another ding from her phone. She pulled it out and found a message from Chen Xiuqi.

Chen Xiuqi: Buy some food for me and bring it to the company.

Su Yaya looked over the message twice and blinked her eyes, and again. Chen Xiuqi wanted her to buy food and bring it to her company? Is he free?

In her memory, Chen Xiuqi’s assistant was in charge of buying his afternoon tea. He never asked her to buy food for him before. Could it be because of her message saying that she was eating cake in the bakery, so he wanted to eat it too?

Hm. This was a possibility since Mancosu’s cakes were pretty good. Otherwise, why else would Chen Xiuqi have her buy food for him?

This was reasonable now. Su Yaya decided to buy two pieces of cake for Chen Xiuqi after she finishes her share.

Su Yaya enjoyed eating her delicious strawberry and coffee flavored cakes. In the past, she only had the heart to buy a piece to eat when she got her monthly salary. Today, she ate two pieces at once and still wasn’t fully satisfied.

She had the waitress pack up the vanilla and chocolate flavored cakes after she was done. Su Yaya planned to bring it to her husband. In addition, those exquisite macarons packed in a box seemed quite good too. Feeling moved, she bought a box of those as well. Su Yaya happily walked out the bakery.

She took the elevator and went to the underground parking lot. After finding her car, she got in and carefully placed the cakes by her side. It was time to drive towards Chen Xiuqi’s company.
