SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Fame Comes with Trouble (1)
“Uhm… where are we going, I still have to get back to work.” Huo Mian was a bit hesitant.
“We’ll be back very soon. Don’t worry, it won’t take up too much of your time.”
“Okay.” Huo Mian nodded as she opened the door and got in without another word.
Ten minutes or so later, they arrived at a high-end Western restaurant.
Jiang Xiaowei waved. “Waiter, we’re ready to order.”
Then, she looked at Huo Mian and said, “They have very good steak here. I’ll order some for you.”
Jiang Xiaowei then ordered two sets of steak, two beverages, along with fruit salad and ice cream.
Then, they ate quietly…
About thirty minutes later, they finished eating, and were well-fed…
Huo Mian curiously asked, “Did you ask for me to come here to eat with you?”
“No, you’re coming with me on a blind date.”
“Pish… blind date… where is he?” Huo Mian looked around but didn’t see anyone.
“He’ll be here soon, I planned to meet him at 12:30, so he’ll be here once we finish eating.”
“Uhm… should we have waited until he got here? Is this really okay?” Huo Mian thought that Jiang Xiaowei was really incredible, coming here half an hour earlier to eat a meal, and then wait for her date to come after she was fully fed.
“Why should I wait for him, I don’t even know him that well.” Jiang Xiaowei sounded very reasonable.
“So even you have to go on these dates… when you’re this successful…” Huo Mian truly admired Jiang Xiaowei.
She was young and beautiful, with a high academic degree, and came from a great family… she really didn’t have any flaws.
However, even a woman like her had to go on these dates, it was undeniably a bit sad…
“Have you heard of ABCD Law?” Jiang Xiaowei wiped the corners of her mouth and asked as she looked at Huo Mian.
Huo Mian shook her head…
“Okay, when did you arrive on earth?” Jiang Xiaowei looked at Huo Mian helplessly, as if she was looking at an alien.
Huo Mian thought that she was already up-to-date enough, as she would occasionally go on Weibo. But in Jiang Xiaowei’s eyes, she suddenly became an alien.
Jiang Xiaowei helplessly looked at Huo Mian, and then she slowly said, “If you divide male and female into four ABCD categories based on their merits, then A male will find B female, B male will find a C female, C male looks for D female, and finally A female is left with D male. They are people from opposite ends of the spectrum, and therefore will never end up together. Men never want to find someone more successful than him, and woman would always want to find the best. That’s the tragedy of society.”
“So… as an A female, you’re left behind,” Huo Mian sighed.
Huo Mian suddenly felt very grateful. She wasn’t from a prestigious family and didn’t have stunning looks…
Therefore, she would place herself into the B category, and that’s why she ended up with Mr. Qin, an A-man. She thought that it was truly wonderful.
Jiang Xiaowei’s theory was quite reasonable…
Just then, a young man with glasses walked towards them from not far away…
Then he looked at the two women at this table, a bit confused…
“May I ask… which of you is Miss Jiang Xiaowei?” the man in glasses spoke timidly.
Huo Mian pointed at Jiang Xiaowei beside her…
The man with glasses nodded and then sat across from them.
He first looked at the empty plates before him…
Then he looked at Jiang Xiaowei and introduced himself, “Hi, my name is Du Zhongqi… I studied finance at Jing University and have a master’s degree… My mom is the chief manager of the Water Conservancy Bureau, and my father is an executive at a telecommunications company. We have eight real estate investments in this city and…”
This dude was quite straightforward, as he immediately reported all of his information straight away…
It was as if he was trying to recite a textbook…
Huo Mian nearly laughed at what he said…
Before the man in glasses could finish, Jiang Xiaowei impatiently waved her hand and stopped him from speaking.
“Sorry, let me interrupt you for a second…”
