Watching what Corinton did, those around stood stunned. Ji Shasha, who thought about impressing others by conversing with Corinton just because she knew English, was flabbergasted.
Who was Corinton? The plump middle-aged man dressed in the businessman attire as well as Zhang Shaofeng had talked about him in enough detail.
Even if one had never heard about Corinton, one could make out his general fame—the best engineer in Country M who had been reported in international news headlines and titled the most outstanding mechanical engineer in the world!
The fact that he had been reported in global news headlines was evident that Corinton was not a small fry. After all, someone who could grace the international headlines could never be someone regular!
What the other guests also did not anticipate was Corinton’s reaction after Zhang Shaofeng growled at him. In order to become Yun Jian’s disciple, the man asked Zhang Shaofeng in such a polite manner!
Zhang Shaofeng himself was shocked by Corinton’s action as well, and the latter was the one to help him regain his balance. It never crossed Zhang Shaofeng’s mind how influential his master was that not only did Corinton not hit him after what he said, he pleaded him to teach him how he could get Yun Jian to become his master.
The best engineer who had established his name worldwide wanted to seek Yun Jian as his master too?
Instantly, Zhang Shaofeng felt immensely proud. After regaining his footing, he acted enigmatically and coughed into a cupped fist by his mouth, pretending like he was some hotshot.
He then stood on his tiptoes to pat the shoulders of Corinton who was more than half a head taller than him, and advised in a lofty air, “You didn’t know how much effort I put in back then in order to become a disciple! I’ve done the best I could! Otherwise, my master wouldn’t have accepted me!”
“Do you want to learn about it? If you do, I’ll—”
“Zhang Shaofeng, stop blowing your trumpet! Careful you get choked!” Chen Xinyi went over, jumped up and swung a smack down on said guy’s head while he was preening and talking big.
“Ow!” Zhang Shaofeng yowled from the pain.
“He made all that up. Don’t listen to him!” Chen Xinyi told Corinton with a smile despite her hand that went to pinch Zhang Shaofeng’s arm.
Corinton was stupefied when he saw how rough Chen Xinyi was treating Zhang Shaofeng. It took him a moment before he reacted.
“You Country Z people are real—really easygoing!” Corinton forced himself to swallow the word “rough”.
He smiled at Chen Xinyi and turned back to Yun Jian. “S, accept me! I’m super nice! I’ll run errands for you too!”
The man said, wearing a cute grin.
Those around them could not help lamenting in their mind. It would be a true wonder if people did not die from shock when an old man like him with a foot in the coffin acted cute like this!
Yun Jian smiled and was going to say something when the drifting of a sports car sounded outside the door before it stopped.
The door guard had been stopping Corinton from entering just now and had pursued the latter all the way into the house, so there was no one guarding the door at this moment. Now that they heard someone speeding into the compound outside, everyone was surprised.
Who was it this time?
Yun Jian had just turned her head to the door when a middle-aged man with a crew cut dressed in a suit but currently looked a little distressed running in.
The man ran in and scanned his surroundings before locking his eyes on Chen Zhenchuan. While everyone watched on in astonishment, the man ran and fell to his knees in front of Chen Zhenchuan.
“Please, have mercy on Beiguang Model Agency! I beg you! I didn’t know that incident would result in such a serious implication to your daughter. Those people have already received their lesson! Please have mercy on Beiguang Model Agency!”
