SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(This Woman Is Too Capricious (8)
"I think it would be better if you asked the president yourself. You know that he has a weird temper, so if I told you and he gets mad, I might lose my job. I hope you can understand." Yang wasn't stupid; he wasn't going to give up information to Jiang Lingyue so easily.
Jiang Linyue's expression changed slightly after hearing what he said. "That's a good idea, I'll ask President Qin myself sometime."
Jiang Linyue saw that she couldn't get any more information from Yang, so she gave up and left…
Ever since Yang arrived at GK, the president had helped him a lot. The president had a weird temper that Yang couldn't understand, but truth to be told, he treated his employees well, and a lot of people were jealous of Yang's salary.
Therefore, even if it was the chairman or Mrs. Qin who came looking for information, he would still keep his mouth shut.
Being loyal to his boss was what he lived by; he didn't want to be a half-hearted person.
After Huo Mian got off work, she felt like shopping and wanted to buy a pair of shoes for the new season.
She went to Wanda Square downtown. Huo Mian was carrying a white backpack and wearing a grey sports outfit with a cute Totoro on it. She looked young, like a freshman from college.
After shopping around for a while, she didn't find anything, so she decided to stop by Starbucks for coffee.
She saw two familiar faces as soon as she went in…
If she wasn't mistaken, were those two… Ning Zhiyuan and He Man?
Why were they together?
Just then, Ning Zhiyuan looked up and was a little surprised to see Huo Mian.
He Man noticed Ning Zhiyuan's reaction and looked up as well. Then, she sneered at Huo Mian.
Huo Mian didn't plan on saying hi to them…
She found a seat and sat down. Then, she ordered an iced mocha.
Ning Zhiyuan, on the other hand, lost his cool. He stood up and walked over to her, "Mian, are you here alone?"
Huo Mian nodded but didn't say anything…
"I didn't get to thank you for last time, let me buy you dinner sometime."
"No, thank you." Huo Mian's voice was faint and indifferent.
Just then, He Man got up as well. She walked up to them and casually placed her hand on Ning Zhiyuan's shoulder, and smiled at Huo Mian.
"What a coincidence, I'm surprised to see you here. I heard that you were promoted to head nurse, not bad."
Huo Mian looked up and coldly glanced at He Man. "News sure travels fast."
The truth was that she hated He Man, because she felt like He Man was overly dark and twisted.
She wasn't like Wu Xiaoxue, who openly hated Huo Mian. She would never do anything despicable behind people's backs.
He Man, on the other hand, enjoyed scheming whilst hiding in the dark. She was very petty.
Even calling her a manipulative b*tch would be complimenting her.
"This is a big deal, of course, I know about it. You must have performed very well to be promoted so fast. I heard that Deputy Director Guo likes innocent-looking woman like you. You really do look innocent from the outside."
Obviously, He Man was insinuating that the only reason why she was promoted was that she was Deputy Director Guo's side piece.
However, to her surprise, Huo Mian smiled, "You already resigned from the hospital, so you should probably stop gossiping about others. Sometimes less is more."
Then, Huo Mian glanced at Ning Zhiyuan and warned him, "If I'm not mistaken, you're married to Wu Xiaoxue, who's pregnant right now. You shouldn't be doing things that you shouldn't be doing. After all… if Director Wu found out, it won't be good for your future prospects. Don't be greedy, and treasure what you have now."
"Mian, you misunderstood, I only came to see her because…" Ning Zhiyuan wanted to explain.
However, Huo Mian wasn't in the mood to listen. She stood up to leave, "Sorry, I have to go."
"She's still so despicable." He Man spat as she watched Huo Mian walk away.
"He Man, why did you ask me to meet you? If you're not going to tell me, then I'm leaving." Having lost all his patience, Ning Zhiyuan turned around to look at He Man, his attitude a little harsh.
