Edited by ABE
Ruan Yan smiled, “It’s just that I was teasing you, but I had an appointment today, but she stood me up this time. It’s not interesting for me to go shopping by myself, so I just bought some things.”
“You can call me next time.”
“What do I tell you? Go shopping with me?”
He looked at her expression, “Why, you dislike it?”
Ruan Yan immediately shook her head: “I’m afraid you are busy.” The truth is, of course, she preferred to go shoopping with her girlfriendsyou still have to go shopping with your sisters!
He smiled without saying a word, and finally arrived at the hotel for the celebration banquet. The man asked her to call him after it was over, and Ruan Yan responded.
The Rolls-Royce continued to drive to the Shuitian Party Club.
When he got to the place, Zhou Mengyan got out of the car and walked into the box. The few people who had arrived inside immediately stood up and greeted with smiles: “Zhou is here.”
Today, Zhou Mengyan was eating withShao Hongxin, the president of another luggage company in Lincheng. He is nearly fifty years old this year, with a beer belly.
Shao Hongxin pointed to several people next to him, and introduced them to Zhou Mengyan, the youngest one of them. “This is our company’s new creative director, Zhao Jin, very young, only 26 years old.”
The woman was dressed in a casual black striped long dress with a good figure and exquisite makeup. When she looked at Zhou Mengyan, she found that the man looked more handsome and darker than the photos on the Internet, and her complexion was casually admired: “Hello, Mr Zhou.”
Zhou Mengyan’s hand was still in his trouser pocket, he answered without intending to shake hands.
Several people were seated. Zhao Jin sat diagonally opposite Zhou Mengyan, her eyes fell on him from time to time. Shao Hongxin looked at her and suddenly said, “I remember Xiao Zhao, you graduated from F University?”
“Yes,” she looked at Zhou Mengyan’s gaze, “I am from the Department of Finance. I remember President Zhou went to my alma mater to give a speech some time ago. I happened to be back on campus that day and I saw President Zhou.”
Shao Hongxin: “Yeah, it’s such a coincidence.”
Zhou Mengyan put down his tea cup and asked at random: “Ms Zhao is from the Finance Department?”
Zhao Jin saw him take the initiative to ask, and quickly replied: “Yes, I am from the Department of Finance, and I also took a course in Business Administration when I was in college…”
However, the man just happened to hear the same school major as Ruan Yan, and asked one more question. Zhao Jin continued talking but the man only listened absentmindedly, leaving SH to answer in his stead or something.
Zhao Jin didn’t find it strange to see the man’s cold attitude. After all, if he was in this high position, she would still find it strange if he didn’t have a bit of arrogance.
It’s just that they came here today to have a meal with Zhou Mengyan, and it was a matter of great face to be able to speak with him.
After the dishes were ready, Shao Hongxin raised his wine glass and brought a few people to offer Zhou Mengyan a toast. After a while, Zhao Jin stood up and walked to Zhou Mengyan’s side, twisted her waist and limbs slightly, and she smiled with a charming smile: “Mr Zhou, I respect you.”
The night was getting thicker, and after three rounds of celebration banquets, everyone had a good time.
After it was over, a group of people went out. Some people booed and said they were going to sing. Everyone was in high spirits. Ruan Yan sent a message to Zhou Mengyan, and someone came over to invite her. She declined: “No, I have something to do, so you go first.”
After saying goodbye to everyone, she walked to the door of the hotel and received a message from Zhou Mengyan: [My side is almost over, why don’t you come and find me? Or I will let the driver take you home first. 】
Ruan Yan: [Let me find you. Where are you? 】
He sent the address, [Tell me when you arrive. 】
Ruan Yan knew the place and went there on foot, just to digest the food.
After arriving at the Shuitian Party Club, Ruan Yan walked inside and was sending a message to Zhou Mengyan when a female voice suddenly sounded next to her: “Ruan Yan?”
Ruan Yan turned her head, and Zhao Jin’s figure came towards her.
Ruan Yan did not expect to meet this senior sister here.
Bringing the other person to the front, she locked the screen of the phone and faintly curled her lips, “Sister Zhao.”
Zhao Jin glanced over at her, a little surprised, “It turns out it’s you, I haven’t seen you for a long time. I remember hearing from a classmate of yours some time ago that you have dropped out of school?”
Zhao Jin pretended to be surprised: “By the way, I heard that you are blind?”
“It’s good now.”
Zhao Jin was stunned and smiled: “That’s good, I thought you were permanently blind.”
Ruan Yan heard Zhao Jin’s ridiculing and contemptuous tone as always, and recalled that when Zhao Jin was in the student union of the college, Zhao Jin was two years older than her and was also Ruan Yan’s deputy president at that time.
Ever since Ruan Yan had joined, Zhao Jin would admonish her in private. During the internship period, her task was the most important. She would not praise her for her good work, and she would ridicule her for her poor work.
At first, Ruan Yan wondered why Zhao Jin was so hostile to her. Every time she wanted to discuss it, but the other party always had an expression of “What are you talking about, I’m so innocent”. Later Ruan Yan knew that the Student Union president liked her. And Zhao Jin liked him.
Ruan Yan took it in, and all kinds of vulgar plots happened to her.
Later, she rejected the president’s pursuit, and Zhao Jin didn’t trouble her too much, but Zhao Jin still disliked Ruan Yan because Ruan Yan was so good in every aspect, whether it was grades, appearance, popularity, etc.
Ruan Yan heard this and looked at her, “It’s not that bad, Senior Sister Zhao doesn’t have to be so sorry.”
“…” Zhao Jin’s face became stiff.
Ruan Yan: “Just kidding.”
Zhao Jin raised her mouth, “I didn’t expect such a serious incident to happen to you. It’s a pity. The postponement of graduation by one year also affects work and postgraduate entrance examinations. I saw the post you shared in your Circle of Friends two weeks ago. Did you play in a drama?”
“I didn’t expect you to be interested in this, but why didn’t I see your name in the lead cast?”
“I’m just a small supporting role.”
“Small supporting actor?” After being forced to take a one-year leave of absence from school, she now ran to play the role of a superstar. Zhao Jin distressedly asked, “Are you so short of money?”
Ruan Yan smiled and said, “There is no way, just to live.”
Zhao Jin saw that Ruan Yan had a bad time, and smiled with confidence: “I’m here today to socialize.”
“I am now the director of the creative department in the Yang Group, and I came over today to discuss cooperation.”
“Director of the Creative Department, so powerful?”
“At that time, I was recruited by the Yang Group directly when I graduated. After working for a while, I was promoted.” Zhao Jin lifted her long hair and raised her chin slightly. “Do you know Fan Moni? Our company recently met with them to collaborate on a project.”
Ruan Yan just finished sending a message to Zhou Mengyan, he was taken aback when he heard the sound, and raised his head: “Fan Moni?”
“Yes, this cooperation case is very important. Their president came to talk in person. He also gave a speech at F before, and I have met him.”
Ruan Yan blinked, “Sister, do you have a friendship with him?”
“We exchanged a few words before. The President of Fan Moni said that he admired me a lot, and he joked that he would dig into their company.”
Zhao Jin thought that Ruan Yan couldn’t know, and bragged without restraint.
Ruan Yan finally said: “Senior sister is too good, I hope I can do it after graduation.”
“It is impossible for you to want to enter Fan Moni after you graduate.” Zhao Jin smiled, “The employees recruited by Fan Moni have very high academic requirements, and it is difficult to enter even with a master’s degree.”
Ruan Yan expressed regret, “That would be a shame.”
“You better graduate first. By the way, I forgot to ask you, why are you here?”
Ruan Yan smiled slightly:
“I’m waiting for my husband.”
“Your husband?” Zhao Jin was stunned, “Are you married?”
“Well,” Ruan Yan glanced over Zhao Jin and looked at the man who was walking on the front of the corridor, “He is here.”
Zhao Jin turned around and saw Zhou Mengyan walking towards them formal wear
Until she walked in front of him, Zhao Jin was puzzled and heard Ruan Yan call smilingly, “Mengyan——”
Zhou Mengyan answered, then walked to Ruan Yan and hugged her, and said softly, “Would you not like to go in and sit with me for a while?”
Zhao Jin: ??!
Support to my work would be amazing and would really mean a lot, if you enjoy my work, kindly consider buying me a coffee!
