It was the start of winter and the days got shorter. The sun had already set before 5.30 p.m.
For the entire afternoon, Xuxu buried herself with work. Yan Rusheng on his end was busy as usual and didn’t step out of his office.
“My husband didn’t allow me to purchase and confiscated all my cards.”
“My boyfriend also stopped me, but I don’t care. I just want to buy because I’ve been waiting for Singles’ Day shopping spree for a long time.”
“You ladies are wastrels.”
“You men are stingy.”
It was finally time to clock-off and call it a day. As the employees packed up, they were teasing each other while having a light-hearted chit-chat at the same time.
It was time to de-stress after a hard day’s work and everyone had a relaxed smile on their faces.
Xuxu took a glance at the desktop calendar on her table. The upcoming weekend would be November 11.
“Wen Xuxu? When did you come back?”
She was lost in her thoughts when Yan Rusheng’s puzzling voice was heard coming from behind. He also sounded annoyed.
Xuxu snapped back to reality and turned around to look at him. She said, “I came back around 2 in the afternoon.”
Yan Rusheng furrowed his brows and appeared even more displeased. “Then why didn’t you come in and greet me?”
“I was busy,” Xuxu said, pointing to the pile of documents on her desk.
This dumb woman.
He had thought that after settling the paperwork at the government office, she would go deliver the good news to the orphanage and won’t be returning to the office so soon. Hence, he stayed in his office the entire afternoon. But who would have known that she had returned so early?
As Young Master Yan thought over it, he got more infuriated. “Busy is not an excuse. Do you know that I almost died of thirst this afternoon?”
Xuxu was speechless. She knitted her eyebrows and said, “Why didn’t you drink water when you were thirsty?”
Was he retarded? He didn’t even know how to drink water by himself when he was thirsty?
He was obviously nitpicking on her.
“No one poured water for me,” Yan Rusheng raised his voice.
Everyone in the President’s office heard him, and all of them had a slight disdain in their hearts towards the president. He knew very well that the office was filled with people all he needed was to make his request known and everyone would try to outdo each other to bring him a glass of water.
How could he say that no one poured water for him? If anyone was an outsider looking in, they wouldn’t have thought that he was acting like a spoiled child on purpose, and would assume that the employees of Flourish & Prosper were arrogant and refused to pour a glass of water for him.
This fellow. Has he gone crazy again?
He’s not even afraid that his employees would make a joke out of him.
Xuxu’s eyes awkwardly swept across the entire office.
It was moments like this that Yan Rusheng could easily see right through her thoughts. He then glared at the employees who were taking their own sweet time to pack up and hollered at them, “Why haven’t you gone home? You won’t be paid for overtime.”
His imposing voice could send shivers down a seven feet man.
Everyone hurriedly nodded their heads. “Oh yes. President, we will leave right away.”
In a flash, everyone left except for the both of them.
Seeing how her colleagues disappeared as fast as rabbits, Xuxu turned to glare at Yan Rusheng. Her face was dark with irritation. “Yan Rusheng, what are you trying to do?”
“Can’t you tell?” Yan Rusheng had a wicked grin on his face. “I am trying to empty out the office to create alone time for us.”
Xuxu was so flabbergasted.
Why did this fellow become so erratic suddenly? Always aloof and arrogant before others, yet shameless and unreasonable behind their backs.
Yan Rusheng spun around and leaned against Xuxu’s desk. With his arms crossed on his chest, he gazed lazily at Xuxu. “You settled the paperwork till around 2 p.m.?”
Xuxu replied as a matter of fact, “It was settled before 11 a.m. but I ran into yourtrue love by coincidence and she invited me to have lunch with her. It was hard to decline her hospitality, so I had lunch with her and came back around 2 p.m.”
