Ning Wan’s office was always open for the convenience of residents coming for consultation. By the time the sound of footsteps finally reached her door, she was already looking up with a smile. When the door opened, she saw a face she had seen not too long ago…
Her handsome neighbor on the train.
The other party was also obviously taken aback in surprise, but then he quickly calmed down, “I’m looking for Ning Wan.”
Ning Wan took a look at the other party, “I am Ning Wan. Do you have any legal issues that require a consult?”
The other party was surprised for a minute and then looked at Ning Wan again. He looked calm and self-confident, “Hello, I’m Fu Zheng.”
Fu Zheng? The @sshole who took Chen Shuo’s position?
This shocked Ning Wan once again. She had been travelling next to him the whole time!
Because of Chen Shuo’s incident, when she looked at Fu Zheng again, her impression of him completely changed all of a sudden. When checking out Fu Zheng, she instantly got a bad impression of him, because of how he fucked over Chen Shuo. Just look at his clothes, he was dressed like a celebrity ready to walk down the red carpet. He didn’t even look like a lawyer! He looked more like a gigolo who would begin stroking his hair back coquettishly at any time…
If it were not for him, she would not have lost such a reliable helper as Chen Shuo, nor would Chen Shuo have lost a long-awaited grassroot level job opportunity. Moreover, the district would also be able to get better legal services with the arrival of Chen Shuo instead of someone with only good looks with zero intellectual ability. Such a person would only cause trouble, nothing else!
Thinking up about it made Ning Wan really angry. She decided to take an initial show of strength. However, Fu Zheng broke the silence before she could even speak.
He smiled at Ning Wan, “Did you eat fried chicken just now?”
There’s nothing wrong with eating fried chicken. If she was asked by someone else, Ning Wan would even enthusiastically bring out the fried chicken and share it with them. However, she was asked by an enemy like Fu Zheng, she would act totally different.
Ning Wan immediately pulled a long face and said righteously, “I didn’t eat. Although we are community lawyers and our services may not be considered high-level, but we must at least maintain the professional image of a lawyer. I hope you can always keep it in mind. Remember that you shouldn’t eat fried chicken in the office. It is harmful junk food…”
Although there was a faint smell of fried chicken in the air, the other party never saw her eating it so she just would not admit it.
Fu Zheng chuckled slightly, “Attorney Ning, there is still some crispy fried chicken skin stuck on the corner of your mouth.”
Ning Wan lowered her face and glanced stiffly at the bookcase’s glass door. In the reflection, she really had a piece of fucking fried chicken skin on her mouth…
However, she could only act tough now. She avoided Fu Zheng’s playful eyes and insisted, “You are wrong. I didn’t eat any fried chicken at all. This is just a mole at the corner of my mouth.” Ning Wan added, “A mole which looks a lot like crispy skin of fried chicken.”
Ning Wan felt that she had lost face and urgently needed to find footing. She decided not to wait for Fu Zheng to speak again. She wanted to take the initiative. Attack was the best defense!
“Fu Zheng, right? I know that in terms of age, you are several years older than me, but you started working later than me. We care more about qualifications and experience in our profession of lawyers, instead of age.” Ning Wan showed a polite smile, “You have just returned from the United States and are still in the internship period. Therefore, in terms of seniority, I am your senior and mentor. You can call me Teacher Ning.”
