The two people reach a stalemate. Zhang Chao Wen gives in first, “Alright, alright, you did a good job with the coffee.”
Zhuang Nai Nai smiles brightly, looking very irritating to the eyes of others, “Thank you for praising me, Department Head!”
After that, she goes back to her seat, listening to Zhang Chao Wen dividing their tasks.
The company’s 100th year anniversary celebration is a grand affair, a lot of people will be invited. Even Mr. Si is mentioned a couple of times during the meeting, the pressure on them is really big.
No matter how much Zhang Chao Wen wants to make things hard for Zhuang Nai Nai, he is not foolish enough to risk ruining their task.
A couple of their staffs have already come up with different design layouts for the venue. Zhang Chao Wen is to pick one of them.
The meeting ends at 6 pm. Evyerone is tired as hell, stretching their waists as they file out of the meeting room. Just as Zhuang Nai Nai is about to walk out of the meeting room, Zhang Chao Wen calls her over, “Zhuang Nai Nai, go and copy the layout designs. Make a copy for all the staffs in our department so that it will be easier for us to compare which is best.”
Zhuang Nai Nai: ……………….!
Comparions can easily be done through their computers, there is no need to copy everything one by one.
She looks at him with gritted teeth, but in the end, decides that this is not worth kicking a fuss over. She picks up the documents and goes to the printing room.
Since it is already 6 pm, she picks up her phone to write a message to Si Zheng Ting.
After that, she puts her phone back to her pocket and takes a deep breath. Then, she starts copying.
The top floor,
The clock chimes 6 pm. Si Zheng Ting puts down his pen and slowly massages his sore neck. Just as he is about to dismiss his workers to go home, his phone vibrates.
He picks it up. When he sees the message, his eyes shrink a little.
Outside, his secretary is about to send some documents in, only to be stopped by Ji Chen, “It is time to get off work. Sir will not look at that, just put it aside for now.”
The secretary freezes in surprise.
Their boss got off work at 6 pm sharp yesterday, is he going to do the same today? Is the sun rising from the west?
She looks at Ji Chen in disbelief. Just as she is about to speak, Si Zheng Ting speaks from inside his office, “Bring it in.”
Ji Chen: …………
Ji Chen brings the document over and Si Zheng Ting begins perusing them. “Is it normal for our employees to work overtime?” Si Zheng Ting suddenly asks.
Ji Chen finally understands everything. He is staying here because the madam has to work overtime.
He ponders for a while before saying, “Our company’s 100th year anniversary celebration will be held soon, the pressure on the Site Design Department will be really big. The madam might be in a meeting right now since that is the department she is working at.”
Si Zheng Ting nods.
He does not know why his head is not in the right place afterwards. He becomes absent-minded and almost signed his name in the wrong place.
Time passes and the clock chimes 7pm.
Si Zheng Ting stares at his phone. 5 minutes later, his phone ring and the name ‘Lady Ding’ flashes on the screen.
