Chapter 101: I Am This Lady's Dance Partner
Hazel seemed to see through Rorey's thoughts, so she couldn't help but laugh and say, “Manny and I
are going to greet them. If you want, you can come with us.”
Rorey's eyes lit up, "Is that okay?"
"Of course, as long as Yunis agrees.”
Hazel smiled and looked at Yunis to seek his opinion.
Hearing this, Yunis couldn't help but frown.
Rorey was almost three months pregnant. Although her belly was not that big yet, he wished that she
could abandon the idea of returning to the entertainment industry at this time.
Especially now that the Ji Group was in such a mess, he couldn't spare any time and energy to deal
with her affairs.
Seeing that Yunis didn't say anything, Rorey was a little anxious. She quickly pulled his arm and said
coquettishly, "Yunis, please. It is a rare opportunity. Maybe I can find some opportunities here. Also,
you don't have to worry about me. With Hazel here, I will be fine with the child."
“Alright, I have something to do later. Be careful yourself.”
Yunis couldn't resist Rorey's soft voice. He only pondered for a moment before agreeing.
He turned around and smiled at Hazel, "Hazel, please take care of Rorey. Thank you!”
“Don't mention it. We are friends.”
Although she said that, Hazel's eyes were filled with coldness.
She was very conscious that Rorey was deliberately showing off her intimacy with Yunis just now.
Thinking of this, Hazel was even more disdainful of her.
A little-known actor actually wanted to build a relationship with those big-name actors and directors.
This was simply self-humiliating!
“Then you guys go. I'll go over there and greet some friends.”
Yunis waved his hand at three women, and then he turned around and walked towards a middle-aged
man not far away.
“Remember to stay away from those bitches! They are difficult to deal with."
In the corner of the banquet hall, Yayoi was holding a pastry plate in her hand. She was gobbling the
desserts while nagging at Rosiley beside her.
“Of course, I will stay away from them, as long as they don't come looking for trouble with me.”
Rosiley took a sip of juice and glanced lazily at Rorey and the others.
“Surprisingly, Rorey and Yunis are here to participate in the annual meeting. I heard that the Ji Group
has been looking for investments and has been rebuffed everywhere recently.”
Yayoi grabbed Rosiley's hand and took a sip of fruit juice from her cup. It sounded that she was
pleased with the bad situation of the Ji Group.
Rosiley was surprised.
She had heard about the news of the Ji Group half a month ago, but she didn't take it to heart at that
It had been the Ji family's foundation for decades anyway. Although the scandal had caused its stock
price to tumble, it was no big deal. Even if something really happened, with their connections and
methods, they would settle it very quickly.
She hadn't expected that the Ji Group hadn't settled this matter after half a month.
“It is, what comes around goes around. Yunis looks haggard and anxious. Perhaps the Ji Group will
really go bankrupt. At that time, Rorey's dream of being wealthy will be shattered.”
Yayoi showed no signs of sympathy for the couple.
She was right. Faced with the current crisis, the Ji Group was not away from bankruptcy
And Yunis's purpose in coming here tonight was to find investors.
Although the Ji Group had quite some influence in the country, it kept being rebuffed as if it had been
cursed recently. They tried their best to lower the standards for cooperation and the price of that
project, but no company wanted to invest in it.
It made it hard for the Ji family to do anything else. And Yunis could only come to this place to try his
However, other than the important members of the Ji family who knew about this matter, outsiders did
not know about it.
Rosiley heard this and didn't take it seriously, "Who cares? What happened to the Ji Group is their
family’s business. It has nothing to do with me. Stop talking about them. The annual meeting is about to
As Rosiley finished speaking, a host stepped onto the stage and presided over the opening of the
This host was specially hired by TEG. With humorous words, he enlivened the atmosphere. And many
guests were attracted and moved closer to the stage.
After a while, the host invited TEG's president to the stage and announced the start of the annual
The entire venue was extremely lively. Some people who knew each other stood together and greeted
and chatted with each other.
Rosiley and Yayoi looked round and didn't find anything unusual, so they went to greet some old
Although the two of them were reporters, they knew quite a few celebrities.
However, not long after, Rosiley was stopped by a stranger. "Miss, sorry to disturb you. You are so
charming. May I have the honor to dance with you later?"
This man was refined, gentle and energetic. He made a good first impression on Rosiley.
However, Rosiley smiled and shook her head without hesitation. "Sorry, there must be someone else
you can ask.”
In fact, apart from Yunis who turned out to be a playboy, she had never danced with another man
She had promised Sachin that she wouldn't have much contact with other men, so she would only
dance with him.
“Well, do you have a date?" the man asked unyieldingly.
Rosiley shook her head, “Not yet. I'm sorry...”
“In that case, why don't you dance with me?”
The man didn't want to give up and kept pestering her.
Rosiley frowned. Just as she was thinking about how to refuse, someone said, "She has refused you!"
He spoke with a trace of courtesy. That man turned around and was shocked, “Who are you?"
Rosiley also turned around, only to discover that another man had appeared beside her.
With an extremely handsome face, he looked uninhibited and arrogant. He wore a handsome tuxedo.
As a noble man, he attracted many women's attention and made the men here feel inferior.
Rosiley was surprised.
Because this person was Payton!
"This young lady already has a date. Please leave.”
Payton smiled as he stared at the strange man who had invited Rosiley to dance. Although he seemed
graceful and courteous, there was a trace of coldness in his words.
“Well, since that's the case, then I won't bother you anymore.”
The man was shocked by his aura. He couldn't help but rub his nose resentfully and left.
Once that person left, Rosiley smiled at Payton and said, "Thank you.”
“Rosiley, you're welcome. It's my duty to chase away flies for you.”
Payton smiled and made a gentlemanly gesture to her. His charming elegance lit up the eyes of the
Rosiley shook her head and laughed, "No kidding. Why are you here?"
"My brother asked me to attend the meeting and serve as your partner.”
Payton sighed helplessly. He couldn't help but complain, “I can't understand you two. Why didn't you
make your relationship public? It's easy for you to conceal your marriage. But if this goes on, I suspect
that no woman would like to marry me.”
