SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(I Will Take the Heat for You (1)
“Hello, Mrs. Su,” although Huo Mian was a bit surprised, she still greeted Mrs. Su politely.
“Do you have time to meet?”
“Yes.” Mrs.Su nodded.
“Alright, why don’t you pick a place, and I’ll come find you.” Huo Mian knew that Mrs. Su wouldn’t look for her for random reasons. Therefore, she agreed to meet with her.
“Why don’t I send the driver to pick you up?”
“Sure, I’m at South Hill Manor,” Huo Mian stated her address.
“Alright, see you soon then.” Mrs. Su sounded very gentle.
“Auntie Su? Don’t tell me she’s Su Yu’s mom?” Jiang Xiaowei was stunned.
“Yes, that’s her.”
“… Why is she looking for you?”
“I don’t know, haha, but I’ve met her twice before and she was really nice to me. She seems educated and is respectable.” After meeting Mrs. Su, Huo Mian realized just how unfortunate it was for her to have someone like Qin Chu’s mother as a mother-in-law.
So, Huo Mian took a liking towards Mrs. Su.
“Alright, I’m going to leave then. We’ll catch up another day. You have to come with me to try on wedding dresses.”
“Okay!” Huo Mian nodded.
With that, Jiang Xiaowei left South Hill Manor…
Mrs. Su’s driver was very fast, sending an Audi R8 to South Hill Manor not long after Jiang Xiaowei’s departure.
“Miss Huo, I’m here to pick you up upon Mrs. Su’s request.”
“Okay.” Huo Mian nodded and got into the car.
On the way there, she didn’t forget to flirt with Mr. Qin…
She sent over an 8.88 yuan red pocket on WeChat. It was quickly accepted by Mr. Qin.
He replied, “Honey, you’re so generous!”
“Of course, other wives usually give their husbands a 0.88 yuan allowance. Aren’t I great to you?” Huo Mian sent over a smiling emoji.
“Thank you, Baby, for being so generous…” Qin Chu was at a high-level meeting, but he couldn’t help but smile at his phone.
Everyone sitting in the meeting became confused. They didn’t dare to question their boss as they were terrified of his temper.
“… Sir, should we go on?” Assistant Yang asked quietly.
“Continue,” Qin Chu raised his head and replied calmly.
“Yes, sir. Regarding our market growth in this quarter…” The marketing director continued on…
With his head down, Qin Chu continued chatting with Huo Mian, content as could be.
Was it really appropriate to court your wife on WeChat while in a meeting?
President Qin, do your parents know this playful side of you?
Assistant Yang was truly worried about his boss…
Sure enough, after his presentation, the marketing director intentionally asked, “Sir, I’ve finished my presentation. Do you have anything to add?”
Qin Chu put down his phone and looked around. He then said, “We’re now nearing year-end. It should be peak season, but you’re telling me that the increase is no more than 8%. Are you kidding me? During last month’s meeting, I stated that 10% was the guaranteed baseline and nothing below that was acceptable. You’re telling me that you’re happy with 8%? Do I have something to add? What can I add? I’ll give you half a month to raise the 2%. If you fail, your department will not be given a year-end bonus.”
The marketing director’s forehead was suddenly drenched with cold sweat…
He had thought that since the president was busy playing on his phone, he wouldn’t be paying attention to his presentation. He was actually quite relieved that he could escape a scolding. To his dismay, however, his boss had the ability to multitask. Yes, he was playing with his phone, but he was also paying attention to everything that was being said in the meeting. How incredible…
At the sight of the marketing director being scolded…
The administrative director weighed in, “President Qin, it’s not their fault. Everyone tried their best.”
