The venue was a luxurious club.
The secretary had already reserved a private room for the lunch meeting.
She had also customized the dishes according to the individual preferences of the clients.
When the guests arrived, they were escorted to their designated seats.
As the topic revolved around the year-end profits, the atmosphere at the lunch meeting was very amicable.
Although the Fan Corporation had threatened the Yu Corporation’s position, no one had any doubts about the Yu Corporation’s strength and power.
“I heard long ago that Manager Nian is a beauty. Today, I’ve seen it with my own eyes. The rumors are true. Allow me to raise a toast to you!” President Fang had never met Nian Xiaomu before. He held a glass of red wine in his hand and raised it at her.
Nian Xiaomu quickly picked up her teacup and clinked glasses with him.
She explained, “I get an allergic reaction easily from alcohol, so I can only replace alcohol with tea. I hope President Fang and the rest of you will not mind it. Let me punish myself with three cups of tea!”
After that, Nian Xiaomu gulped down three cups of tea.
Her candid manner drew a round of applause.
It was easy to rouse the displeasure of the clients if one was unwilling to entertain a few rounds of drinks at a social setting.
Rather than repeatedly coming up with excuses, she might as well come clean with them and give herself a penalty first.
This way, no one would take it to heart.
When Nian Xiaomu was done, she returned to her seat.
After she had familiarized herself with everyone’s interests, she brought up a few common topics to include everyone in the conversation during the meal and to build an understanding among one another.
Seated next to her, the secretary was at first worried that Nian Xiaomu would not be able to manage so many important clients at the same time.
However, now that she saw how calm and gracious Nian Xiaomu was, as well as the way that she conducted herself, the secretary’s concerns went away immediately.
Also, she finally realized that it wasn’t a hasty decision to ask so many clients out for lunch. Nian Xiaomu had done her homework before this.
She had the information of all the clients at her fingertips.
The issues that were raised resonated among the clients.
As the lunch gathering proceeded to the midway point, everyone was in high spirits.
Nian Xiaomu had followed Yu Yuehan’s instructions and did not to touch a drop of alcohol while he wasn’t around.
However, she drank too much tea and urgently needed to use the restroom.
Since the restroom in the private room was being used, she decided to use the public restroom outside.
Just as she stepped out of the room, she bumped into someone.
Stopping to apologize, she looked up and frowned when she saw that it was Wen Yadai standing in front of her.
“It’s you again?” Wen Yadai’s face darkened when she saw her.
Crossing her arms, Wen Yadai looked around first to check that Yu Yuehan wasn’t nearby before raising her head haughtily and saying, “Nian Xiaomu, don’t think that you can act so arrogantly just because you have become the manager of the public relations department and have replaced me!”
“I’m sorry that I accidentally bumped into you. If there’s nothing else, I would like to use the restroom.” Nian Xiaomu was here to entertain her clients. She wasn’t keen on getting into a conflict with Wen Yadai.
After a simple explanation, Nian Xiaomu stepped past Wen Yadai and walked into the restroom.
Seeing that she was being ignored, Wen Yadai’s face turned even more pale.
What she hated the most was this attitude that Nian Xiaomu had.
Despite not doing anything at all, she managed to make Wen Yadai look bad in comparison.
Furthermore, she had the gall to say that it wasn’t intentional! Was she trying to humiliate her?
Wen Yadai was infuriated by how unfair the situation was for her. She was a distinguished young mistress of the Wen Family, but now, for the sake of her family business, she had to entertain a bunch of dirty-minded clients to close deals.
As for Nian Xiaomu?
She was merely a nurse, yet she could enjoy the high life as the manager of the public relations department.
She could even proudly enter such a posh club now.
All of this used to be hers!
