Chapter 12: Eating together

Since the promise was made, Gu Xiaochen left and went home early and busy every day.

The other two assistants saw her abnormal behavior and couldn’t help but be curious and confused, but said nothing. Newcomers must always be sent by someone to take office. This is already an unwritten rule. Gu Xiaochen not only has to deal with trivial chores, but also has to memorize the company’s business projects, including a series of lists, partners and so on.

Every day seems to be not enough, and the weekend will be ushered in the blink of an eye.

Zhou Wu’s nervousness finally relaxed after a week of tension in the evening.

“I saw a skirt yesterday and it looks good. Let’s take a look today?”

“Okay, I haven’t been shopping in a long time.”

“Then we will go …”

Already after work, two assistants walked out of the office.

At the desk next to the window, someone was buried in a pile of documents and was still fighting. As the sun went down, the reddish evening glow shone through her windows on her serious face.

The door of the president’s office was knocked gently, and Secretary Xia walked in.

Wu Helian signed her name on the document and put the pen aside, “Secretary Xia, EMS this document to the UK.”

“Yes, Master Lian.” Secretary Xia walked on Wu Helian’s side on three-inch high-heeled shoes, reaching for the file. She paused and wanted to say something, but she kept talking.

Wu Helian asked in a deep voice, “What else?”

“I don’t know if Master Lian has an appointment today?” Secretary Xia asked cautiously, his smile becoming restrained.

Wu Helian raised her eyes to her, and said nothing.

“Sorry, Master Lian, I’m too abrupt. Since Master Lian has an appointment, next time, next time. Then I’ll get off work. Bye.” Secretary Xia couldn’t help being embarrassed, the tone was hard to hide, and she turned around and walked out with the file Out of the office.

The whole building became quiet, and some people were still working hard in the assistant’s office, which seemed to mean no work.

Gu Xiaochen sorted the documents and turned her head to look at the time. It was already five o’clock. She planned to take it home and continue her homework on the weekend.

A tall figure suddenly flashed outside the office, and Wu Helian passed by slowly. Yu Guang inadvertently glanced at Gu Xiaochen, who was sorting documents, he stopped, and walked to the office door. However, Gu Xiaochen was too focused and did not notice that someone was watching him.

“Boom-” He clasped his hands and knocked on the door.

Gu Xiaochen looked up in surprise, the whole person was startled, and stood up quickly, “Master Lian.”

“Working overtime again?” Wu Helian, of course, also knew her hard work this week, Shen Sheng asked.

Gu Xiaochen whispered, “No, planning to get off work.”

Wu Helian saw that she had packed a whole book bag and asked again, “Go home?”


“A person?”

“Um …” She dragged her long voice, what did he want to do?

Wu Helian raised her lips, “I’m a person too.”

So? Gu Xiaochen thought to himself, he said slowly, “Dine together.”

what? Gu Xiaochen’s eyes widened.

Wu Helian smiled even more charmingly, making people unable to refuse. Before Gu Xiaochen responded, he took a step towards her, took the book bag on the desk directly, and turned and walked out of the office, leaving Gu Xiaochen standing alone in a daze. She frowned angrily, grabbed her backpack and chased up.

The two came to the underground garage. Wu Helian trail opened the car door, put the book bag in the rear seat, turned his head and said, “Get in the car.”

Gu Xiaochen was gone, so he had to get into the car.

A high-end Western restaurant.

Revolving floors, the window position can admire the neon night of Hong Kong. Champagne and fine wine, delicate delicacies, bow tie waiting for the waiter at any time, the violinist pulled the melodious music. The silverware on the dining table gleamed with dazzling brilliance and stung his eyes.

Gu Xiaochen was a little uncomfortable. In such a high-level place, she had never been here.

“Sir! Miss! Good evening!” The waiter greeted with a smile.

Wu Helian put the menu in front of Gu Xiao, Shen Sheng said, “Want to eat, order it yourself.”

Gu Xiaochen looked at the menu. The expensive numbers made her dizzy. The cheapest food here can cost her half a month’s salary. She closed the menu and looked up at the waitress with a smile, “I want a fried rice with eggs.”

“Egg … fried rice?” The waiter was stunned for a moment, not expecting she would order this.

“Is there no egg fried rice?” Gu Xiaochen asked suspiciously, his face slightly warm. The only western restaurant she has been to is near the school, and the price is good.

“I’m sorry, miss, there is nothing you want. But we have …” The waiter quickly recommended, after all, Master Lian couldn’t offend.

“Two steaks, one half-cooked, and the other half-cooked.” Wu Helian said in a hurry, but a pair of eagle eyes kept staring at Gu Xiaochen.

“Okay, sir, please wait.”

It didn’t take long for the waitress to bring the steak to them and retreated respectfully. Wu Helian elegantly picked up the knife and fork and cut the steak silently. But Gu Xiaochen couldn’t swallow some food, she didn’t bring so much cash at all. I originally wanted to pay for each, what should I do?

After using the meal, Wu Helian swiped the card to check out. Gu Xiaochen said softly, “Master Lian, today …”

“Today I invite you, next time you invite.” Wu Helian turned her head to look at her, her black eyes bright.

“Good!” Gu Xiaochen agreed, but he didn’t want to owe others.

Out of the restaurant, Wu Helian insisted on sending Gu Xiaochen home.

The car stopped in front of an old apartment building. Wu Helian reached out and took the book bag in front of her. Gu Xiaochen took it in her arms and opened the door to get off.

Gu Xiaochen hugged the book bag and bent slightly, almost blurting out, “Be careful on the road.”

Wu Helian stunned, stepped on the accelerator and walked away. And his handsome face slowly flashed before Gu Xiaochen’s eyes, and the Lamborghini also disappeared at the corner.

Gu Xiaochen then took back his eyes and turned to the apartment building, annoyed and murmured, “I want to eat with him …”
