Zhou Tong was in Yan Rusheng’s office for about 15 minutes. All the while, she maintained her haughty pose; chest and chin held high as she exited.
Soon, Yan Rusheng came out of the office with his blazer hanging on his arm, looking like he was heading out.
Xuxu watched as he walked out of her sight, and her eyes began to get sorrowful. She looked down and sighed quietly to herself.
How much determination must she take in order to take another step?
How much effort must she put in for her to enter his heart?
Yan Rusheng came back to the office before 3 p.m. and went straight to his office. He stayed inside for the rest of the afternoon.
The colleagues began departing one after another when it was time to knock off. Xuxu started feeling hungry and decided to call it a day.
She casually glanced at Yan Rusheng’s office and clenched her hands tightly as if she was making a tremendous decision. After some hesitation, she mustered her courage and went to his office.
Yan Rusheng answered, and Xuxu pressed her lips tightly. She recollected herself before pushing the door.
The man inside had his head lowered in a pile of work. She said softly, “It’s getting late, are you going home?”
“You head home first,” Yan Rusheng promptly responded without even a glance at her.
The corners of Xuxu’s mouth sank, and she responded with an‘oh’despondently. She left the room and shut the door after her.
Before she went to his office, she had intended giving him a hug, cling unto him by his neck to pacify him. If she took the initiative to apologize, would it resolve the misunderstanding?
But when she saw how he had his head buried in work without sparing her a glance, she found herself struggling for a good amount of timeand she just couldn’t do it.
She knew exactly what was the reason for her reluctance. She had been too aloof and haughty towards him all these years. Suddenly, she had to transform into a docile and meek woman in front of him. She couldn’t quite bring herself to do that.
Initially, she was really hungry but as she faced the food on the table, her appetite had vanished. She bolted down a few mouthfuls and left the dining table.
She walked out of the dining room and went to the sofa. She waited till it was half-past ten but Yan Rusheng was still nowhere in sight.
Sigh.She took a deep breath, put on her bedroom slippers, and went back to her room.
The next morning came, and Xuxu had no idea what time Yan Rusheng came home last night. Xuxu entered the dining room only to find him sitting at the table reading a financial newspaper and eating breakfast.
She was stunned for a moment. She strode across the room and asked, “What time did you come home yesterday?”
Yan Rusheng placed the newspaper down and smirked coldly. “Is this really important to you?”
Xuxu bit her lips and glumly said, “I waited for you till after 10 p.m.”
She didn’t have the heart to anything, not even watching her favorite drama. How could it be unimportant to her?
She sounded like she was complaining and Yan Rusheng knitted his eyebrows tightly. He coldly snorted. “Then should I be flattered?”
Xuxu walked to the opposite side of the table and remained standing.
She pouted as she pitifully gazed at the man who was full of sarcasm towards her right now. “Ah Sheng, can we stop being like this?”
She thought that even though he was furious with her, he would definitely understand the reason why she had made that decision.
Perhaps he could throw a really huge tantrum or maybe give her a severe punishment. At least it was better than him keeping a distance away from her and ignoring her presence. She was really at a loss.
Yan Rusheng spoke suddenly. “Do you know who the winning bidder of the piece of land was?”
Xuxu shook her head. “I don’t know.”
She had already given up on the bidding and naturally, she wouldn’t be interested to find out who won the bidding.
