Chapter 1 Chapter 1
After drinking so much beer, her stomach is hot and burning, her head is so dizzy.
Ye Qing Xin is laying on her stomach on the washstand of the restroom of five-star hotel. She is using the cold water to make her hot face colder.
She raises up her face and looks at herself from the mirror. Her face is still red and eyes are also red. She is drunk.
She wants to smile but at last she gives up because she cannot smile.
She turns off the water tap and turns her body to leave the restroom.
When she is out.
“Wipe your face.” She is given a blue handkerchief.
Ye Qing Xin is startled and raises her head.
The man in front of her is expressionless and looks very serious. He is tall and calm. He makes her feel timid.
Ye Qing Xin feels like a student who is being taught by her teacher.
She knows this man, before she met him on the table. He is the main actor of the gathering. Everyone is busy to flatter him. The boss of Bo Wei, Jing Bo Yuan.
Looking at how she stands till, Jing Bo Yuan reminds her: “You need my help to wipe it?”
A rich man said those words to a young and beautiful woman, it’s difficult to not be suspicious. But when Jing Bo Yuan said it, it sounds strict and serius.
Ye Qing Xin takes the handkerchief and thanks him: “thank you, Chief Jing.”
Jing Bo Yuan nodded and leaves. He walks stable and straight. He is charming and full of charisma.
Ye Qing Xin stays a long time outside, then she once again gets inside the room. The business dinner will end soon. Everyone prepares to move to another place to play.
This kind of business gathering, at first there is a lot bosses from different companies. There’re also politicians, the other else are young women, like Ye Qing Xin. They comes to entertain them.
“Xin Xin, what are you so long?” Tai Zheng Ting looks at her. “Chief Huan is drunk, why are you not pouring him a tea?”
It’s so crowded in the room. Tai Zheng Ting just says it lowly. It’s just Ye Qing Xin can hear it.
Ye Qing Xin just purses her lips and doesn’t move.
Before, this Chief Huan’s actions are not really polite. So for making sure she will not be taken advantage of, she tried to shift his attention by pouring him a lot of beer and drinking the beer by herself.
“I”m sorry, Uncle. My body is unwell. I want to go home to rest.”
Ye Qing Xin says it calmly.
Tai Zhen Ting’s face changes, he moves closer to her and said lowly: “Xin Xin, Uncle knows that you are a proud girl, but this is an important moment, you need to endure it. You need to urge Chief Huang to help uncle to take this project. Then we can have money to pay your Mama’s hospital fee and your brother’s school fee.”
Ye Qing Xin’s face turns pale.
“Don’t blame uncle. Uncle also has my own difficulty.” Tai Zhen Ting said. She feels unease because of this and she tries to escape it.
“I’m sorry Uncle. Before I came you also didn’t ask me about this, I am not ready for this.”
The actual meaning is she doesn’t want to accompany Chief Huang.
Tai Zhen Ting looks at her. Chief Huang recognizes Ye Qing Xin and immediately moves away from beautiful woman beside him. He moves closer to Ye Qing Xin: “Young beauty, what takes you so long outside. Oh right, you haven’t told me, what is your name?”
Ye Qing Xin’s body turns rigid. She is surprised and stands up. It’s surprised Chief Huang. “What are you doing!”
Ye Qing Xin purses her lips.
If in the beginning she knows that Tai Zhen Ting asks her out for this, she will not come.
Tai Zhen Ting moves closer to her and pulls her. He angrily rebukes her: “What are you doing! Why are you so careless, hurry up apologize to Chief Huang!” Then he turns to look at Chief Huang: “Chief Huan, don’t be angry. She is new to our company, she is not used to this. Don’t take it inside your heart.”
“New one? She is a recent graduate?” Chief Huang’s eyes turns to be wretched.
A lot of recently graduate student are inexperienced people.
Ye Qing Xin lowers her head.
Tai Zhen Ting notices Chief Hua is drooling with desire, he laughs: “No, she is just in the second year. Chief Huang, if you like her, we might as well make appointment to have better understanding?”
Chief Huang shows his yellow teeth: “It’s indeed good thing. I’m afraid that it’ll be hard to arrange time. Just tonight, later on let this young beauty follow me. Tonight I will send her home.”
This is plain signal. All the men have a tacit mutual understanding about this.
In this situation and business, some body could sacrifice their wife, moreover a little employee?
Ye Qing Xin’s face turns pale. She looks at Tai Zhen Ting. She feels her whole body turns cold.
She bits her lips and tries to endure it: “I’m sorry, Chief Huang. Our school has a curfew, I need to go back early.”
Being rejected in public made Chief Huang embarrassed and unhappy, “What is it? Is it so hard to just chat with me? Who do you think you are? It’s your luck that I could like you! You are not respecting me! You don’t want money? I have money. You can serve me well, then I can give you whatever you want!”
Chief Huang has encountered a young woman like her.
At this time.
Jing Bo Yuan, who is sitting down and smoking silently, stands up.
Everyone notices his action. They also stands up and turns quiet.
Jing Bo Yuan comes over.
Chief Huang and Tai Zhen Ting are not people with high position so they sit quite far from Jing Bo Yuan.
They both shifts their gaze from Ye Qing Xin.
Jing Bo Yuan goes in front of Ye Qing Xin. He is very tall, he is around one hundred eighty or ninety.
“I think you are quite familiar, what is your school?”
Ye Qing Xin raises her head. She knows she shouldn’t provoke him. She even couldn’t provoke Chief Huang. Chief Huang seems to be unable to provoke him too.
“B University.” She answers.
“It’s so coincidental. I am also from B university. We can be counted as schoolmate.” Jing Bo Yuan turns his head to look at Tai Zhen Ting: “You should train my little schoolmate well, B university always produces talented person.”
It’s indifferent tone but it makes people unable to reject it.
He says it and looks around: “I invite a friend to play golf in the evening show, anyone wants to join?”
Who will dare to be uninterested when he asks?
Jing Bo Yuan goes out of the room and everyone else follows him. All of them looks at her strangely.
Ye Qing Xin is not a stupid person. Jing Bo Yuan is helping her out of trouble. Chief Huang also follows Jing Bo Yuan out and doesn’t mention anything.
It’s just, why?
Ye Qing Xin goes out of the hotel. It’s too cold in Jing City this night.
She cannot be confident that Jing Bo Yuan likes her. A man like him, with high position and strictness, how can he like her, a little girl?
A message ringtone.
Ye Qing Xin takes out her phone. It’s a message from Tai Zhen Ting.
— Xin Xin, today Uncle did it because of pressure. Your mama fell two days ago and needs money. My company is in difficult situation now. Chief Huang’s project is important for us. I am worried about your Mama so I did this. So please don’t blame or be angry with me by looking at how I always take care of your brother and Mama. When Uncle has free time, let me take you out for a meal and buy pretty clothes okay?”
Ye Qing Xin reads it. She feels every words like a pinch for her heart.
Her Mama, always be sick. Two days ago she broke her legs because of the snow; her brother, because of his illness during young age, his brain has some problems. Their family depends on her uncle. She doesn’t have any right to be angry.
She replies Tai Zhen Ting’s message.
— I know, thank you Uncle.
She hears a honk sound behind her.
Ye Qing Xin put down her phone.
Ye Qing Xin raises her head and notices a black Cayenne car stops in front of her. The window lowers down and shows a chubby man.
“Hi, I’m Chief Jing’s assistant, Luo Feng. Chief Jing asks me to send you home. Get inside the car.”
Ye Qing Xin is astonished and be alerted. Jing Bo Yuan keeps on helping her, she always feels it’s inappropriate and just refuses: “Thank you, but no need. There’s a train station last night, I can just use it.”
Luo Feng opens the door and shows his strict face: “I just follow Chief Jing’s order. Please don’t make thing hard for me.”
She notices at how similar his strict face as Jing Bo Yuan.
Ye Qing Xin considers for two second and gets inside the car.
The car moves away.
Luo Feng glances at her, Ye Qing Xin just looks at the scenery outside.
“That…..” Luo Feng finally speaks up: “How should I call you?”
“My name is Ye.” Ye Qing Xin’s answer is somewhat reserved.
Luo Feng doesn’t take offense: “When did you know our Chief Jing?”
It’s not because she is a gossiper, it’s just he has been following Chief Jing for ten years. It’s the first time Chief Jing ordered him to send a woman home. He also never met this little girl so he is curious.
“I don’t know him.” Ye Qing Xin answers honestly. Jing Bo Yuan is a famous man, she hears about his reputation but she doesn’t know him. Tonight is the first time she meets him.
“You don’t know him?’ Luo Feng asks with surprised tone. He clears his throat and tries to find a way out of an embarrassing situation: “then do you know why did Chief Jing help you out of trouble?”
Ye Qing Xin is startled and asks again: “Why?”
She also wants to know.
Luo Feng pretends to be calm: “You are also clueless? I thought you know.”
Ye Qing Xin: “……..” She also thought that he knows.
The car arrives at B university gate.
Ye Qing Xin thanks him and opens the door.
Luo Feng watches Ye Qing Xin gets inside. This girl should be around twenty years old. She is tall and skinny. She is so beautiful.
