Huo Mian slowly opened the rectangular gift box to see a brand new, rose gold iPhone 6S.
So it was a phone...
Huo Mian looked down at her fairly old iPhone 4S; it was the phone her brother Zhixing had used before her.
She had given Zhixing a new iPhone 5, so Zhixing gave this black 4S to Huo Mian.
Huo Mian thought it worked very well, so she had been using it for quite some time.
She didn't know that Qin Chu was aware of all of this and would buy her a new iPhone.
She thought she shouldn't accept it; however, if she refused, she might seem too picky.
She had already accepted Qin Chu's one-million-yuan monthly salary, so should she really be hesitating whether to accept a phone, which was only worth a few thousand yuan?
At this thought, Huo Mian brought the phone back into her room and then took out the sim card.
She replaced her old phone with the new one...
Then, to try out the camera, she even took a selfie on her bed.
However, she had no clue that this phone's ICloud was already linked to Qin Chu's phone.
This meant that every photo she took on her phone would automatically show up on Qin Chu's phone.
So, Mr. Qin, who was sitting in the other room, saw Huo Mian's silly selfie in her pajamas.
The corners of his lips curled into a smile
Huo Mian then logged onto WeChat, and saw that someone had sent her a friend request.
She clicked on the request and saw that it was Qin Chu.
She tapped on 'approve', adding him to her contacts.
Her first words were to ask, "How did you find my WeChat account?"
To her surprise, Qin Chu immediately replied, "We were in the same WeChat group."
Just then, she received another WeChat notification.
Qin Chu sent her a money transfer, it was 8888 yuan.
Huo Mian tapped on accept, and then replied, "Thanks."
Qin Chu never replied...
- The next morning -
When they were eating breakfast, Huo Mian looked at Qin Chu, and said, "I'll be taking night shifts starting this week, so I won't be back at night."
"Why are you taking night shifts?" Qin Chu's furrowed his brows, clearly upset.
Huo Mian smiled unwillingly, "I don't want to either, but it's the hospital's policy."
"I can call Wu Zhongxing and ask him to cancel your night shifts."
"No, don't do that. If the director really moved me to the day shift, the other colleagues would have to take the night shifts. Then I'll be guilty of not pulling my weight in our department, and I don't want to be like that."
"Fine, whatever makes you happy."
Qin Chu didn't say anything else after he saw that Huo Mian refused.
"Ahem... thank you for the phone and the red pocket money.."
"Then I'd like to thank you for the breakfast," Qin Chu oddly replied.
Huo Mian didn't know how to respond after what he said.
The two didn't say anything as they drove towards the hospital.
Qin Chu wore his Bluetooth earphones; it seemed like his assistant was talking to him about work stuff, so Huo Mian did not dare say anything.
When they arrived, Huo Mian saw that Qin Chu was still busy, so she opened the door in an attempt to get off without a sound.
However, Qin Chu suddenly grabbed her left hand...
Surprised, she turned around to look at him.
Qin Chu took off his earphones and asked, "How long will you be taking the night shift for?"
"For about a week."
"You'll have time off during the day, right?"
"Yes, I'll be sleeping at home during the day."
Qin Chu didn't say anything else and let go of Huo Mian's hand
"Then I'll be off, drive safe." Huo Mian waved at him and then got out of the car.
Qin Chu's gaze followed her until she entered the hospital, and then he drove away.
- At the morning meeting at GK Headquarters -
After every department director finished their report, Qin Chu looked around and slowly said, "I've something to announce."
All of the senior executives snapped to attention and began listening intently, in fear that they would miss something important.
"Starting tomorrow, for a week, every employee will rest during the day and come to work at night."
Everyone was dumbfounded when they heard this
"President Qin, this?"
"Whoever feels that they're not suited to do this can hand in their resignation letter. That is all."
Qin Chu stood up to leave after he finished speaking...
Assistant Yang quietly followed behind the president and, once again, was overwhelmed by his boss's willfulness.
"Uhm President Qin, I wanted to ask, are you doing this because you want everyone to get used to the time difference? Just in case our headquarters moved to the United States, and people won't be accustomed to the time zone?" asked Assistant Yang as he suddenly thought of this.
Qin Chu looked at him nonchalantly, and said, "You're overthinking things."
No one knew that Qin Chu made this sudden decision only because he wanted to be with his wife during the day.
"Huo Mian, come in a hurry! There's an emergency," the head nurse waved her hands and called Huo Mian over.
