After carrying out a slew of defensive strategies against the Fan Corporation’s invasion of City H, Nian Xiaomu felt more at ease.
After listening to the secretary’s reports, she took a sip of her coffee and subconsciously reached her hand down to massage her waist.
Immediately, her face contorted into an expression of aching pain.
Afraid that the secretary might sense that something was amiss, she did not dare to even let out a gasp. She could only secretly curse and swear at Yu Yuehan in her heart!
As the secretary tidied the documents, she could not resist adding a last comment and said, “Regarding the Fan Corporation, we have been keeping an eye on them. It seems that Fan Yu hasn’t been going to the office these past few days.”
Hearing this, Nian Xiaomu’s eyes lit up, and she put her cup of coffee down.
“Do you know what he’s been up to?”
It was important to know yourself and your enemy well.
Although she had confidence in the defensive strategies that she had prepared, she knew better than to underestimate her business rival.
After meeting him a few times, she had found that Fan Yu was a rather peculiar character.
He appeared to be a very friendly person, but his smile seemed to hide his desolation.
It was not possible to see through that smiling face to know what his inner feelings were.
There was always a tinge of loneliness about him
He had always picked on the Yu Corporation, yet upon further thinking, he had actually not done anything at all.
Even though he had previously met up with her clients, there was no follow-up after that.
If it were any other president from some other company, they would surely be anxious after meeting with so many setbacks while trying to expand their business. Fan Yu seemed perfectly fine.
He had even stopped turning up at the office, as if he did not care anymore
Such a rival was really hard to fathom.
The secretary shook her head and replied, “I’ve sent someone to find out more, but there is no news.”
“Just leave it then. Focus on what needs to be done.” As soon as Nian Xiaomu finished speaking, there was a knock on the door.
“Manager Nian, there is a delivery for you. You’ll need to sign for it.”
Hearing this, Nian Xiaomu got up and walked out of her office.
When she arrived at the entrance of the public relations department, she saw a delivery man standing there with a huge bouquet of red roses and a box of chocolate.
Seeing her, the delivery man quickly walked over and said, “Miss Nian, this is for you. Please acknowledge the receipt of delivery.”
Nian Xiaomu: “”
She hadn’t bought anything. Who had sent them?
Nian Xiaomu signed for the flowers and chocolates.
Her colleagues had already gathered around her, their faces filled with curiosity.
“Who sent them? Very interesting!”
“It seems like Manager Nian doesn’t know who they are from either. Quickly check to see if there is a card among the flowers!”
“The flowers are so beautiful. They must be from an admirer!”
She looked through the flowers and chocolates, but did not find any card among them.
Instead, she received a text message on her cell phone.
Swiping it open, she saw that it was from Yu Yuehan. It was a simple sentence: [Is your body feeling better?]
Now he was showing concern for her?
In that case, why didn’t he hold himself back last night when she pleaded for him to stop?
What a hypocrite!
Nian Xiaomu looked briefly at the message and irately put her phone back into her pocket.
Taking a second look at the flowers and the chocolates, she felt a surge of annoyance at the sight of them.
She picked up the bouquet and, when she returned to her office, dumped them immediately into the trash bin.
However, after a few minutes, she lost her self-control, walked over to pick up the flowers from the trash, and arranged them in a vase.
Sitting down at her desk, she smiled blissfully as she admired the red roses that had yet to fully bloom.
Then, as she put a piece of chocolate into her mouth, the aching from her waist seemed less painful.
Picking up her phone to reply to Yu Yuehan’s text message, she was interrupted by the secretary who urgently barged in.
“Manager Nian, we just received news that our colleague was beaten up at the event location!”
