Chapter 293 – Terrifying Woman.
This is the exact scene.
Li Shuang giggled at the side as she looked at Gu Lüdan, who was completely dumbfounded.
“What are you blanking out for? Thank Chairman Ye.”
This girl is just like me back then…
“Can I seriously?” Gu Lüdan pinched her own arm with a lot of force, as if she had not calmed down from the shock yet…
Ye Zichen couldn’t help but chuckle when she saw the girl’s slightly idiotic look, “Everything is real. Alright, you are a supervisor of the administration department from now on. The administration department is the face of Maintaining Beauty, so you have to make sure that everything is alright!”
“No problem!” Gu Lüdan answered confidently.
Later, within the elevator…
Ye Zichen stood within the elevator with a smile.
Li Shuang’s heart leaped when she saw his smile, “Boss, are you thinking about that girl?”
“A pretty cute kid,” Ye Zichen replied like an old man.
“You don’t seem to be older than that staff member,” Li Shuang chuckled.
“But my heart is old,” Ye Zichen shrugged helplessly with a smile. After so many things have happened to him, it would truly be unnatural if his heart did not age.
Ye Zichen let out a sigh, then glanced at Li Shuang, “What did you just go to do? It looks like you just came back?”
“Mu Chuang had several things that he didn’t understand in the jewelry store. Since Director Bai wasn’t there, I went over to help!” Li Shuang smiled in response.
“How is Mu Chuang doing there?”
Ye Zichen did care quite a bit for this little brother of his. Although they weren’t real brothers, they did grow up together on great terms.
“He’s very focused.”
“Li Chuang, what do you think about Mu Chuang as a person?” Ye Zichen suddenly asked. However, before Li Shuang replied, he quickly spoke up again. “Never mind, pretend like I didn’t say anything.”
“Boss, what did you actually want to ask?” Li Shuang couldn’t help but ask.
“Aii, I was just wondering whether you two might get together, and I could help pair the two of you or something. But then again, it seems like there is a kind of large difference in your ages… Never mind, pretend like I didn’t say anything!”
At that moment, the lift door opened.
Ye Zichen quickly walked out of the elevator, leaving Li Shuang alone within to gaze at his back with a sad smile.
Ye Zichen directly rushed to Xiao Yumei’s office. When he got to it, he took a sniff of the flower’s fragrance, smile, then directly pushed the door open without knocking…
Ye Zichen had wanted to surprise Xiao Yumei, but the moment he entered…
He noticed that a business negotiation seemed to be going on.
“… Do continue,” Ye Zichen smiled awkwardly as he closed the door with flowers in his hand.
Then, a hand reached over to pull the office door, “Since Mr. Ye came, then let’s discuss this together, this corporation does belong to you.”
This familiar tone…
“Why are you here?”
Ye Zichen was truly speechless. The person in front of him who spoke up was the woman that screwed him over in the ore trade center.
“We’re talking business! Since I’m a businesswoman, I will join in wherever there is profits to be made!” The veiled lady spoke with a smile.
Since it was her, Ye Zichen did not mind at all and directly walked over to Xiao Yumei with the flowers.
“Yumei, these are for you,” Ye Zichen handed the flowers in his hand over.
When Xiao Yumei saw the flowers, a smile bloomed on her face, “Thank you, I like them a lot.”
“I never expected Mr. Ye to be a romantic person as well. Director Xiao, I’m so envious!” The veiled lady sat on the office’s sofa while hugging her shoulders.
Ye Zichen couldn’t help but get annoyed when he looked at her, “If you’re that jealous, then find a man to send some to you. What are you getting envious here for!”
“What? You wear a veil all the time, are you afraid of being seen? Back then, I didn’t dare to offend you since it was on your turf! It is my turf now, so can’t I act more to my liking?” Ye Zichen glared. “Yumei, what sort of cooperation did she come to discuss about?”
“She wants to be an agent for our company!” Xiao Yumei replied.
“Don’t let her!” Ye Zichen glared at the veiled lady as he said that. It was as if he was saying ‘I’m going to piss you off’, ‘I’m going to piss you off’…
The veiled lady merely smiled, then brought over a contract from the side with a shrug, “It’s been signed already.”
Ye Zichen was completely speechless.
Ye Zichen picked up the contract from the table and took a glance…
Then, he took a look at the actual body of the contract.
“Twenty percent? It can’t be, a businesswoman like you only wants twenty percent of the profits?”
“Twenty percent is already quite a bit,” Qu Qitong smiled faintly. “Director Xiao is a smart businesswoman as well. When smart people cooperate, both sides naturally have to show some goodwill.”
Xiao Yumei nodded in response, then looked at Qu Qitong, “Director Qu, actually, I’ve always had a question I wanted to ask you about. Just what exactly gave you so much faith in our product?”
“You really want to know? Qu Qitong smiled, then took off her veil.
Both Ye Zichen and Xiao Yumei were completely shocked when they saw her face.
An originally beautiful face was completely ruined like she had been in a car accident. The dense scars crawled along her face, which would be described as menacing without any exaggeration.
Both Ye Zichen and Xiao Yumei apologized together.
Qu Qitong merely smiled, then put the veil back on, “There is nothing to apologize about. It should actually be me who thanked you guys.”
“It was this product of yours that filled my future with hope. You might not be able to imagine it, but actually, the scars on my face were much more severe three days ago,” Qu Qitong smiled faintly.
Meanwhile, both Ye Zichen and Xiao Yumei were completely stunned.
Even more severe, just what was it like before?
All of a sudden, Ye Zichen actually felt a hint of pity for the girl. Just what did she go through to get her face ruined like this?
“I don’t need your pity,” Qu Qitong’s voice suddenly turned cold. “I did not get to this stage through others pity.”
Can this girl read minds? Ye Zichen frowned.
“I can’t read minds,” Qu Qitong spoke up once more. “I’m just a businesswoman. Observing expressions is just a basic survival skill.”
“Ye Zichen has no need to feel speechless,” Qu Qitong raised her eyebrows, then smiled. “Instead of whether I can read minds, I’m actually more interested in Mr. Ye. I brought all of the stones you picked for me back. Aside from the two useless rocks that you specifically chose to hide the truth, all of the other rocks gave out jade.”
Ye Zichen was shocked.
This woman is truly terrifying. How did she know I intentionally chose two pieces of useless rocks?
“Mr. Ye, I’ve said it already, I have great observation skills,” Qu Qitong smiled faintly. “Your rate of choosing rocks with jade is a hundred percent. Even old experts that have been in the industry for several tens of years merely have a sixty percent rate. If it wasn’t because I’m rather realistic, I really would suspect you have x-ray vision!”
