Her lips were stretched thin, and she tossed the rumpled napkin in her palm into the dustbin before slowly turning around to leave the bathroom. She stood in the quiet corridor and stared at the private room not far away for a long time. Eventually, she turned the other way, walked toward the elevator, went downstairs, and left.
Even though Su Zhinian had said that it was okay if CEO Lee dropped the deal, Cheng Qingchong still tried her best to get CEO Lee to sign it. She knew how important this deal was to him and to his company. She also knew that he could choose not to care about anything to do with that woman by the name of Song Qingchun.
But she cared.
Because she liked the man, even though she did not hope to one day be with him, she wished him a world of happiness.
Furthermore, she was happy to be able to do something for him.
Cheng Qingchong had lost count of the amount of alcohol and the type of alcohol CEO Lee had forced her to drink. Eventually, it all tasted the same in the end. She suppressed the congested feeling in her chest and downed the drinks like water.
She had overshot her threshold a long time ago, but her strong willpower kept her going. It was not until she managed to persuade CEO Lee to sign the papers that she left the room and left CEO Lee with the girls.
She felt like she was walking on clouds; she tumbled only after a few steps. However, even in the state she was in, with bruises forming all over her body, she was happy. With her hand on the wall, she helped herself up, and when her eyes landed on the signed contract, her lips broke involuntarily into a smile.
She had done one more thing for him.
Cheng Qingchong looked at the contract like it was her baby. She flipped through it several times before placing it carefully back into her purse. With the wall as guidance, she pulled herself slowly toward the bathroom.
Right at the door into the bathroom, her hands on the wall slipped, and she fell once more to the floor.
The floor of the bathroom was slippery with water. Whenever she tried to stand up, she would slip and collapse heavily back onto the floor.
The corridor outside the bathroom was the place with the most traffic. The females turned their noses up at her while the dirty males even snuck a look up her short skirt.
Cheng Qingchong knew she was too drunk to be able to leave Eldorado without aid. Her boss and Miss Song were just downstairs; with one phone call, they would come to her aid.
However, even if she had to spend the whole night on the bathroom floor unattended, she would not make that call.
Her boss had almost lost his life to save Miss Song. It was not easy for them to be on speaking terms again, so she could not ruin this for him.
Cheng Qingchong took several deep breaths and summoned all the energy left in her. She attempted to climb up from the floor again, and this time, she reached much greater progress than the few trails before it. When she almost stood up upright, her knees gave, and she collapsed, lurching forward.
If she was to fall this time, it would probably cause some serious injuries.
Cheng Qingchong closed her eyes, bracing for impact, but the pain did not come because, at the last second, a hand reached out to grab and hold her falling body.
