“So what? Don’t even mention successfully signing Shangxin to the endorsement deal when you haven’t even met her in person yet. Why should I apologize to you?” Fang Lan folded her arms and replied sarcastically.
However, the others did not know that she had specially asked around for insider news.
During the times that Nian Xiaomu had applied to work out of the office, it was rumored that not only had she not met Shangxin, she even injured herself.
She was really in a difficult situation.
The reason for her current behavior was only because she did not want to be embarrassed in front of her colleagues. Hence, she took on the full burden without complaint, right?
Let’s see how reluctant she will be to admit her mistake when the one week deadline was up!
“Who said that I didn’t manage to meet Shangxin?” Nian Xiaomu raised her head. She glanced at Fang Lan briefly and replied with a pause after every spoken word, “Shangxin will be here at the Yu Corporation office at 10 am today to discuss the endorsement deal with me.”
“What did you say?” Fang Lan was in disbelief, and her eyes widened.
She was not the only one in shockgasping sounds surrounded the both of them.
There was an instant change in everyone’s expression.
They seemed to be in disbelief that Shangxin had indeed taken the endorsement into consideration and was even coming down personally to the office…
This was a first!
Nian Xiaomu ignored the astonished stares around her and walked forward directly. With slightly lowered eyelids, she stared down at Fang Lan’s shocked face, “There is still an hour left before it’s 10 amyou still have time to practice kowtowing in apology.”
“…” Fang Lan’s eyes shrunk!
Her face turned ghastly pale in an instant.
However, Nian Xiaomu did not stare at her further; she turned her head and instructed the secretary to book the meeting room for a time slot after 10 am.
Turning around, she returned back to her seat and switched on her computer to prepare the contract.
No one in the public relations department had expected such a turn of events.
Nobody pitied Fang Lan, who had acted out for her own benefit and suffered the consequences. Instead, they held some suspicions regarding what Nian Xiaomu had mentioned just now.
It was a known fact in the industry that Shangxin had an icily arrogant character.
There were numerous investors who fancied her popularity and wanted to invite her for endorsements, only to be rejected ruthlessly.
How could she have said yes to Nian Xiaomu…
It wasn’t even 10 am, but the public relations department was already waiting seriously for Shangxin’s arrival!
Time ticked by.
The meeting room had already been emptied and furnished with fresh flowers and fruits.
All the employees from the public relations department had rushed back, including those who were working out of office.
All of them wanted to catch a glimpse of Shangxin in person.
After all, Shangxin was so highly popular. However, apart from her official photos from work, it was nearly impossible for someone to get ahold of her personal photos. Hence, everyone was curious about what she looked like in private.
There were quite a few employees in the department who were fans of her, and they even had their cameras and signature books prepared.
“It is already 10 am. Why isn’t Shangxin here yet?” someone asked in disappointment after staring at their watch and seeing the clock strike 10 am.
“There was probably a traffic jam on the roads. Why are you so anxious? Let’s wait for a while longer.”
The wait continued for another 10 minutes. However, there was still no sight of Shangxin.
Fang Lan, who was on the verge of desperation, regained her vigor in an instant when she noticed the situation and asked, “Could someone be lying and have managed to trick everyone else?”
The moment she spoke up, everyone’s gazes turned toward Nian Xiaomu!
Nian Xiaomu did not know what had happened either. Just when she took out her cell phone and wanted to make a call to inquire, the cell phone was snatched away by Fang Lan.
Nian Xiaomu knitted her eyebrows and asked, “What are you doing?”
“I should be the one asking you this! You really have the nerves of a tiger!. How dare you lie to and cheat so many of our colleagues?” Fang Lan grabbed her arms and ridiculed her proudly, “You still wanted me to kneel down before you to apologize previouslyI guess you are the one who should kneel down before the rest of us in apology!”
