Zhuang Nai Nai grievingly makes her way back to her seat, secretly cursing Zhang Chao Wen in her heart. She is now stuck between two options: Should she call Ji Chen and ask to borrow money, or should she just settle with owing Su Jin Hui?
If she calls Ji Chen, Si Zheng Ting will definitely find out, wouldn’t that be embarrassing?
She scratches her own head. As she struggles over what she should do, her phone suddenly beeps twice. She looks at the screen: it is a message from an unknown number.
‘Hi, Junior Sister. It is me, Su Jin Hui.”
That two simple sentences gives her the same feeling as Su Jin Hui does, warmth.
She saves his number before pondering over what she should say. In the end, she bites the bullet and type, ‘Can I return your 1100 yuan at the end of the month, Senior?’
They will get their salary during the 28th of every month.
But, they have only met today and she already goes around borrowing his money; will that be okay?
Zhuang Nai Nai feels like she has no face to meet people.
Su Jin Hui replies very fast, ‘You can, no need to rush.’
Zhuang Nai Nai feels very happy when she reads that.
She knows that Su Jin Hui does not care about the 1100 yuan, but he never says anything about her not needing to return it. That means that he wants to help her save face. He is very considerate.
She quickly replies him, ‘Thank you, Senior!’
She thought that would be the end of it, but her senior unexpectedly replies her with, ‘Shouldn’t you repay me with something?’
Zhuang Nai Nai is a little confused, ‘What do you mean, Senior?’
‘Treat me to a meal when you receive your salary.’
Zhuang Nai Nai: ……………!!
Why does she feel like she is being extorted?
Besides…… Why does she feel like Su Jin Hui really has some interest in her?
She opens her lunchbox as she stares at her phone, wondering how she should reply him.

Since she is pretty, she gets courted by a lot of men, even back in college.
She is never the type to lead someone on, she would just be honest with them.
However, she have only meet Su Jin Hui today. If the other party asks to be treated to a meal, can she really say no?
But if she says ‘yes’, will she be leading him on?
She takes a piece of ribs and chews it harshly.
No one from the Site Design Department notices May standing by the entrance. When May sees that Zhuang Nai Nai is eating, she sighs in relief and walks away.
After a while, her phone beeps again, ‘I was only joking, Junior Sister. Since you are new here, I will be the one treating you out.’
This message is a lot better.
Zhuang Nai Nai replies him, ‘I was just eating. Thank you for helping me today, Senior. You are too kind.’
After she types that, she picks up her now empty lunchbox and puts it in the trashcan. By the time she returns to her seat, everyone in her department are now busy going to the meeting room.
Zhuang Nai Nai takes out her notebook and carries all the documents that she has printed to the meeting room.
She distributes the materials to everyone.
The phone inside her bag vibrates but she does not have the guts to check it.
The meeting drags on until 3 pm before they are given a twenty minute break. After drinking some water and going to the toilet, she checks her phone.
