Zhong Nuannuan wanted to laugh when she remembered Aiden’s expression. He looked as if he had seen a ghost. She thought that her dream was divine.
“Big boss, I think it’s an amazing choice! Really! You’re skilled in acupuncture and you know how to make medicine too. If you master surgery as well, you’ll definitely be the best in the medical field in Camino! You’re helping the dying and healing the injured. It’s such a noble job! And you said that my brother-in-law is a soldier? The two of you are a match made in heaven!”
Zhong Nuannuan smiled. “Yeah, I think so too.”
Selina was on loudspeaker. The people around her shivered at Zhong Nuannuan’s answer.
Damn, when did their big boss become so sappy?
“Big boss, you really love my brother-in-law, right?” Selina asked the question that Aiden had not dared to ask.
After all, the word ‘love’ was previously a taboo for them.
“Yeah.” Zhong Nuannuan nodded. She agreed openly.
“Then what about big brother?”
Selina and Aiden perked up their ears as they waited for Zhong Nuannuan’s answer.
After two seconds of silence on the other end of the phone, she said, “You know, I’m just like you all. I see him only as my big brother.”
“But you know how big brother feels.”
“That’s why you shouldn’t tell him about my engagement.”
“But he’ll know sooner or later.”
“I’ll already be married when he finds out. I’ll tell him the truth then. It’s better to just get it over with than to prolong the agony.”
Their big boss was still their big boss. She was always like this. She never did a sloppy job.
If she had made up her mind, she would not reconsider even if she were to run into a wall. If she had refused to do something, she would never cave in or comply no matter how much someone put their hearts into it.
“Alright, let’s not talk about me anymore. Selina, what do you plan to do now that you’re staying here permanently? Will you be working at Tianheng Holdings?”
Aiden’s eyes glistened. He looked at Selina expectantly.
“Who would want to go to that kind of place? I’m just twenty. I haven’t even been to university yet!”
“Pfft” Aiden scoffed.
“Which university are you going to?”
“Jia Yong, of course! Aren’t you in Jia Yong too, big boss? I’m going to accompany you in Jia Yong!”
“I’m going to the medical university in Emperor District.”
“It’s fine. I’ll move elsewhere then. I’ll open a premium private hospital in Emperor District. When you graduate, you’ll be the CEO of that hospital!”
Zhong Nuannuan facepalmed herself.
“Selina, we’re aristocrats!”
When she got back to the Zhong family, the word she heard the most was ‘aristocrat’.
After living in the Zhong family for half a year, Zhong Nuannuan felt that she did not know what was the meaning of aristocracy anymore.
“I am an aristocrat! When I become the king of the world, no one will dare to say that I’m not a f*cking aristocrat.”
Zhong Nuannuan was amused by Selina’s words.
In her eyes, aristocracy meant nothing. The most important thing was money.
When she thought about how Chi Yang had defined them as speculators, Zhong Nuannuan simply held in her frustration.
Qu Mingyi smiled when he saw that the person walking in was Zhong Kuijun. “Old man Zhong, you’ve come to visit me in the afternoon? Could it be that you’re asking me out for lunch?”
Zhong Kuijun chuckled. “Chief of staff Qu, you got it right! I am here to ask you out for lunch. Let’s go. I’ll treat you to stir-fried dishes in the canteen.”
Chief of staff Qu laughed out loud. “Then, I’ll order at least three dishes.”
“Alright. We can get one meat and vegetable dish as well as a soup.”
