Getting Outsmarted By The CEO - Chapter 37
E/D: Spirit Song
The extremely uncomfortable and phony father-daughter heart-to-heart talk lasted for approximately twenty minutes in total, which was much less interesting than Ruan Lin’s ugly face.
Although Ruan An’an felt that just the look of uncontrollable madness on Ruan Lin’s face made the entire visit to her home worth it.
That weekend, Ruan An’an had a little taste of Gu Jue’s so-called “I’ll work hard to court you well”.
— She would unfailingly receive a “Good morning” and “Good night” everyday, various reminders to have three meals a day, and in the same manner as before, he asked her for a selfie.
Because of this, although Ruan An’an has been working all weekend in the company, she was always filled with sweetness whenever she chatted with Gu Jue.
In the first class on Monday, Ruan An’an arrived at the entrance of the classroom and saw someone standing by the back door from a distance.
Gu Jue leaned against the wall, his eyelids drooped as he gazed at his phone, and occasionally he would raise his hand to touch the back of his neck, looking drowsy.
Ruan An’an’s heart rate escalated suddenly, and the pace of her footsteps became faster unconsciously. As she approached, Gu Jue heard her brisk footsteps and turned to look.
Ruan An’an felt a little strange as she approached, “Why are you standing at the door?”
“Because the class for today is not here.”
“Today’s class is in the computer room.” Gu Jue smiled and put away his phone, “But I guessed that you didn’t read the class schedule, so I waited here for you.”
The way he leaned against the wall and laughed was simply overwhelming. Ruan An’an suddenly thought of a joke someone posted in the forums – Gu Jue can shoot you without a smile, and can kill you with a smile.
Ruan An’an blinked and changed the subject, “What were you playing just now? A game?”
“En, Candy Crush.”
No wonder I heard an “unbelievable” chime.
The two walked side by side in the direction of the computer room, attracting attention from bypassers along the way.
The class today was a simulation training class related to the Game Championship, which was prepared for the students of the Department of Economics and Management who signed up.
Ruan An’an initially did not intend to take the Game Championship very seriously, but if she was inspired by any incentive, she would be a completely changed person.
-For example, now that she knew that Ruan Lin was also going to compete this year, she made the decision to win the championship and gloat in front of her.
As soon as the two entered through the door, Qiu Yan waved at her, and Ruan An’an led him to the large group.
The team members had already met formally last week. Apart from Qiu Yan, the other members were Lian Hao and Chen Song. The two boys in addition to Qiu Yan were three comedians in the team. In other words, they were actually three jesters.
At present, Ruan An’an still had reservations about Qiu Yan’s previous statement that “the three of us have good grades”, but the atmosphere in the group was indeed very good.
The five greeted each other, and Chen Song said, “Hey, I have a really nice Senior Brother. He said he tried bribing but the championship was so competitive that he didn’t even make it to the top 100 in the end.” He continued with regret, “I thought it was easy to get into the first hundred, and even into the top fifty.”
Lian Hao and Qiu Yan looked at him speechlessly.
“I can’t believe you are so stupid…” Lian Hao shook his head, “Don’t follow the footsteps of other idiots.”
Qiu Yan doubted, “The top fifty? Are we worthy? Just keep dreaming, Old Chen.”
The three were friends from a young age, so they could rebuke each other mercilessly. Ruan An’an thought that Chen Song was very funny looking while having an aggrieved expression, and interjected casually, “It’s not necessarily true. Why do you think so? I think it won’t be a problem to get to the top fifty.”
I am aiming to be number one. She added in her heart.
Chen Song’s eyes lit up, and the other two were dumbfounded. Then Ruan An’an heard Gu Jue next to her saying, “Well, I think it’s not a problem either.”
Lian Hao and Qiu Yan looked at each other.
We’re screwed, there are three dreamers in our group.
