Just when Wang Miaomiao had finished compiling the information and was about to tap the “send” button, she heard a noise from behind and was so startled that she nearly dropped her cell phone!
Turning around, Wang Miaomiao saw Nian Xiaomu standing behind her back when in fact she should have been sound asleep at this point in time.
By the time Wang Miaomiao came back to her senses and wanted to pick up her cell phone, Nian Xiaomu was one step quicker than her and had already proceeded to pick up the cell phone from the ground.
Following which, Nian Xiaomu took a cursory glance at the contents on the screen by accident.
Before she could finish reading the contents, Wang Miaomiao had already reached out anxiously and snatched her cell phone back.
“Supervisor Nian, why are you awake? Didn’t you say that you wanted to sleep…”
As Wang Miaomiao spoke, she silently slipped her cell phone back into her pocket.
Her attempt to cover up her guilty actions only made matters worse.
Nian Xiaomu straightened her standing posture. As she swept her gaze past Wang Miaomiao’s face, she tucked both of her hands in her pockets and said, “Interpreter Wang, you’re in such a rush to send news to Manager Wenare you trying to lodge a complaint against me?”
Wang Miaomiao was a cautious person, so her actions just now were very swift as well.
Even Nian Xiaomu hadn’t seen the contents of the message clearly. However, she had seen that Wen Yadai was the recipient of the message.
There were two reasons why she did not look into the incident of the mixed up arrival time. Firstly, she did not want to inadvertently alert the enemy. Secondly, she was also afraid that she might have misunderstood Wang Miaomiao.
After all, there might be an error when translating from another spoken language.
Perhaps it was unintentional of Wang Miaomiao to have reported the time as 10 AM instead of 11 AM.
However, at this point in time, it seemed that Wang Miaomiao’s actions were indeed fishy…
“What rubbish are you uttering? Why would I lodge a complaint against you for no good reason? Besides, do I still need to take the extra step of complaining about you when you’re already in this state now? You will be fired sooner or later without me saying anything.” As Wang Miaomiao spoke, she took her cell phone out from her pocket.
She brought it to Nian Xiaomu’s face and said, “Look at it clearly. I was only reporting my work to Manager Wen and did not say anything directed against you.”
Nian Xiaomu swept her gaze past Wang Miaomiao’s phone screen.
The screen did indeed show a regular work report; she had sent Wen Yadai a message saying that they were currently thinking of ways to convince Mr. Lombardi to continue the collaboration with them.
“I had read too much into it,” Nian Xiaomu collected her gaze and said indifferently.
When Wang Miaomiao heard this, she put away her cell phone and spoke with a raised chin, “Manager Wen had gone all out and fought for this project. No one will be able to shoulder the responsibility if it were to be messed up. You were actually in the mood to sleep just now! The first thing that you should do now is to think of ways to salvage the collaboration.”
Halfway through her lecture, Wang Miaomiao stole another suspicious glance at Nian Xiaomu.
She was really unable to make out Nian Xiaomu’s next step.
Could it be that Nian Xiaomu was actually trying to sound her out with those actions just now?
Did Nian Xiaomu suspect her?
However, if that was the case, why did Nian Xiaomu not question her about the incident where she had given false information about the arrival timing? Instead, Nian Xiaomu had acted like nothing had happened.
Wang Miaomiao was completely confused.
However, she felt reassured the moment she remembered that she and Nian Xiaomu were the only ones around when she had informed Nian Xiaomu about the arrival timing.
Since the collaboration was messed up and there was also no solid proof, no one would believe anything that Nian Xiaomu said.
Anything she said would be useless!
“What time is it now?” Nian Xiaomu asked all of a sudden.
Wang Miaomiao replied subconsciously and said, “11:30 AM.”
It had been one and a half hours since Mr. Lombardi and his team landed in City H.
However, they had not even had a chance to meet Lombardi in person, so how could they discuss the collaboration like this?
“Supervisor Nian, what should we do next? Are you still continuing with your nap?” Seeing that Nian Xiaomu was making her way into the room, Wang Miaomiao followed her in.
Instead, Wang Miaomiao watched as Nian Xiaomu grinned at her while picking up her coat.
“Nope, I am not sleeping. I am a little hungry, so let’s go get a meal at the restaurant!”
Wang Miaomiao: “…!!”
