After staying for an intense and warm night, Yang Chen suddenly remembered that he didn’t make a call to home last night when fetching Mo Qianni back to the company.
He didn’t plan on staying overnight at the farm stay yesterday. Furthermore, Mo Qianni’s old wound suddenly started taking effect again. After that, a fire started between them. When the love was concentrated, he forgot the ice-cold phone call again!
Yang Chen didn’t know what to feel in his heart. After bidding farewell to Mo Qianni, he pondered on whether he should give Lin Ruoxi a call or not.
If a cold war were to start between them once again, he could only endure and wait for time to heal, since he was the one who promised to inform her whenever he wasn’t going home.
Having hesitated for a while, Yang Chen still decided to call Lin Ruoxi. After a short while, the call got connected.
“What is it…” Lin Ruoxi sounded really tired. It was rare for her to talk to Yang Chen this way. She didn’t sound so domineering.
“Erm… regarding yesterday night,” Yang Chen said before clearing his throat, “I’m sorry. Some things happened too unexpectedly, so I forgot to inform you. I’m calling now to ask for the respected wife’s forgiveness.”
Lin Ruoxi remained quiet for quite a while. She then said, “Didn’t you come home yesterday night?”
Yang Chen got shocked. Why doesn’t Lin Ruoxi know?
“I’ve been working all night in the office. I didn’t go home,” Lin Ruoxi said.
Yang Chen almost vomited blood onto the steering wheel. If his men knew about his embarrassing act, he bet they’d laugh lying on the ground.
But really quickly, he noticed something wrong. Frowning, he said, “Why did you work overtime all night? Are you really a workaholic? Do you think you’re the champion of triathlons, or some heroine with strong fighting capabilities from some random mountain? If you faint as a result of overworking, aren’t you afraid that no one will be there to save you?”
“What’s wrong with your metaphors? So what if I work overtime? Do you think you’re really impressive staying outside all night?” Lin Ruoxi retorted with a cold voice.
Yang Chen continued debating. “They’re completely different things. I’m definitely at fault, but it isn’t right for you to mistreat your body. I told you many times, you should delegate the tasks to your employees. When you’re doing everything yourself, not only will you get exhausted, your workers won’t have a chance to perform. Does your brain belong to a pig?!”
“Did you just scold me as a pig brain?!” Lin Ruoxi’s tone got raised really high. She couldn’t believe that Yang Chen would scold her loudly. However, she didn’t know how to say something rude. On the phone, she said the word, “You…” for really long, but no words seemed to have followed.
Yang Chen felt that he indeed got rather emotional. He quickly said, “Erm… I wasn’t scolding you. I just felt that your body would collapse eventually if you don’t change your working habit. I was just persuading you to alter your workaholic behaviour. Since you’re not getting enough sleep nor are you eating properly, you need to know that wrinkles will form very easily this way although you’re young. Menopause will come early as well!”
“Gangster! You… you don’t need to care about my menopause!” Lin Ruoxi almost fainted.
“This… I was really just analyzing the situation from a medical perspective,” Yang Chen said before coughing a few times, “In short, you’re not allowed to work at night in the future. If I ever find out, I’ll kick your door down and pull you out from the office. Or I’ll stand beside you like a steel pillar. I’ll see how you work at that time!”
“I don’t want to talk about this issue with you anymore, I have a meeting to attend later. Don’t forget about the charity function tonight by Liu clan. I’ll call you at around three o’clock in the afternoon and tell you what to do,” Lin Ruoxi said before immediately ending the call.
In the office, Lin Ruoxi contemplated her phone silently. Having spoken so much nonsense with the shameless man, but… why don’t I feel annoyed? she thought.
Lin Ruoxi stopped thinking about it. Although she worked overtime all night, she still had a bunch of tasks to take care of, not to mention the meeting she needed to attend immediately.
Feeling dismal, Yang Chen drove to his own office. He noticed that Wang Jie and Zhao Teng were already waiting for him there.
“Did anything happen, that you two came this early?” Yang Chen got shocked.
Smiling, Zhao Teng stood up and said, “Director Yang, we’ll be signing contracts with Miss Shitu this afternoon. We purposely brought the contract here for you to look through.”
Yang Chen didn’t think Rose would complete the task this quickly. Receiving the contract expressionlessly, he quickly read through the contract. Generally, the contents inside were about the same as he imagined, but the specific partnered project wasn’t determined yet.
“This contract can gain us at least 200 million of funds combined with what we currently have. Have you guys decided on what to do with them?” Yang Chen asked.
Zhao Teng and Wang Jie looked at each other for a while. At last, Wang Jie opened her mouth to say, “Director, although we can sign a few well-known producers and artists in our current situation, we’re still barely able to launch our own TV series which is strongly associated with our brand. It’d affect our promotional effect. We’re thinking of launching our own talent show as previously suggested. Not only do we have enough funds, doing such an activity would boost our company’s reputation significantly.”
“It’s a good choice, I personally support the idea,” Yang Chen said as he nodded.
Wang Jie hesitated for a while before saying, “However, the most important part in such a project is the judges. I’m afraid that using ordinary senior producers or singers wouldn’t be enough. So I hope Director can think of whether you can invite a few most influential superstars to become our judges.”
Yang Chen thought, it seems like these two have noticed my extraordinary background, and want to use my influence to get some big shots to help out the situation. However, this isn’t a challenging task at all.
“Alright. Although it is a bit difficult, it’s not entirely impossible. I’ll give you guys an answer within a month. You may start planning the overall event soon,” Yang Chen said.
Zhao Teng and Wang Jie smiled out of satisfaction. They chatted for a while relaxedly before leaving the office.
After taking care of some insignificant matters, Yang Chen slept in his office for a while. In the afternoon, he rushed to the headquarters of Yu Lei International to have lunch with Zhao Hongyan and the other ladies. Being unproductive, Yang Chen somehow managed to pass time until three o’clock previously planned by Lin Ruoxi.
Incredibly puntual, Yang Chen’s mobile phone vibrated at three o’clock sharp.
Yang Chen picked up the call and heard Lin Ruoxi’s emotionless voice.
“Come to my parking slot,” Lin Ruoxi said before directly ending the call.
Yang Chen smiled bitterly. This woman really liked to end calls with him. It seemed like he could only hope for one day where she could finally say goodbye.
However, if Yang Chen would get bothered about such a minor matter, he would’ve been pissed to death long ago. Carefreely running to Lin Ruoxi’s parking slot, he noticed that Lin Ruoxi was waiting for him beside her red Bentley together with a tall man who wore a necktie and a western suit.
