Chapter 7

Miss Zhuang, Please Leave

 

The moment the meeting begins again, Si Zheng Ting’s mind drifts away.

 

The scene of her curling up outside his hotel room flashes in his mind over and over again.  She seemed to have sneezed a number of times when she was resting earlier.

 

Remembering that, his heart is involuntarily riddled with anxiety.

 

He suddenly gets up, “The meeting is over.”

 

After saying that, he walks out with large strides without even looking at the people’s startled faces.

 

After walking out of the meeting room, his eyes drift towards the resting area, though his legs takes him to the opposite direction.

 

His assistant follows him from behind and pretends to casually bring a matter up, “Mr. Si, Miss Zuo has come.  Because you were in a meeting, she decides to wait for you in the resting room.”

 

Hearing that, Si Zheng Ting pauses in his step.

 

Zuo Yi Yi is currently with Zhuang Nai Nai.

 

She has a glib tongue so she will not suffer from any grievance, but Zuo Yi Yi has become a lot more haughty and rude these past few years.

 

Si Zheng Ting pauses before opening his mouth, “The group’s 100 years anniversary will soon be here.  How is the preparation by the Planning Department?”

 

The assistant immediately takes the hint, “I think the preparation is almost done.  But if you have time, I think it is better for you to personally visit them.”

 

In order to go to the Planning Department, one needs to pass by the resting room.

 

SI Zheng Ting nods.  When he passes the resting room, he purposely slows down his steps.

 

Every single word exchanged inside the room reaches him.  In the blink of an eye, the warmth in his body chills down.

 

 

—–

 

After being hit by that burst of cold air, Zhuang Nai Nai is a little scared to turn around.

 

Remembering the arrogant way she spoke just now, she really wants to stitch her own mouth off.

 

The cold air radiating from behind her becomes colder.  Even her heart trembles along with her body.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai takes a deep breath and straightens her stiff neck before turning around.

 

Si Zheng Ting is standing in the doorway, giving off an imposing air.  His icy cold eyes are like dagger, plunging straight into one’s bones.  Zhuang Nai Nai’s entire body turns cold.

 

She is so scared she cannot even bring herself to say anything; she knows that what she said has been heard.

 

She clenches her fists, not even daring to look at him in the eyes.

 

Her heart thumps.  But once one thinks about it, she was telling the truth, why should she be afraid?

 

With that in mind, she recomposed herself and gives him a warm smile.  Her voice is no longer hostile and is instead sweet and gentle, “You are done with your meeting?  How is your tummy? That…..”

 

“Ji Chen!”

 

Anger is suppressed under that cold voice, causing everyone to be startled.

 

The assistant, Ji Chen freezes from behind.  He can feel the cold air creeping into his body, “Yes, Mr. Si.”

 

Si Zheng Ting looks at Zhuang Nai Nai, slowly opening his mouth aloofly, “You don’t want this job anymore?  Since when has Di Hao Group allowed random people to stroll inside it’s building?”

 

The assistant:  You gave a silent approval to let her go to your hotel room, but not your company?

 

He naturally does not dare to say it out loud.

 

He immediately stands straight, “It is my negligence, Mr. Si.”

 

After that, he beckons two bodyguards over and leads them in front of Zhuang Nai Nai, “Miss Zhuang, please leave.”

 

Zhuang Nai Nai is scared senseless by Si Zheng Ting.

 

He seems to be tired of everything and simply turns around and leaves.

  1. Well, yeah, that would cool anyone’s ardour right down. The girl he was with 5 years ago dumped him. Sure he still has feelings for her, but now she’s chasing him like mad, for money?! You can see how that looks a little cold-blooded.
