A small thing?
Zhuang Nai Nai sighs in relief at his reassurance.
After promising Su Jin Hui dinner tonight, she sits on her seat restlessly. It is a little over 4pm when the rest of the staffs finally walk out of the meeting room.
Su Mei gives Zhuang Nai Nai a look as she approaches her. She waits for the sour-faced Zhang Chao Wen to leave first before patting Nai Nai in the shoulder, as though saying, ‘You are on your own. Good luck!’
Zhuang Nai Nai feels like a prisoner who is on her way to the chopping block.
18th floof, Director of Design Department’s Office,
Mi Nuo looks at Su Jin Hui who is sitting opposite her.
Su Jin Hui is the Vice Director of the Design Department. He is only 30 years old. He is an important staff to the department, he is considered a successful white-collar worker.
Had she not won a prestigious design competition back then, the seat of the Director of the Department would have gone to him.
Due to that, Mi Nuo has always treated him with courtesy.
Since Mi Nuo is young and is a female, he has never tried to compete with her. They have always treated each other with respect; and now, he is actually here to plead for Zhuang Nai Nai?
Mi Nuo lowers her eyes while drumming her fingers on the table. After a while, she says, “Alright, I understand, Director Su. I will handle this with discretion.”
Su Jin Hui nods and gets up.
Just as he opens the door and is about to leave, he bumps into Zhang Chao Wen who is standing outside.
Mi Nuo smiles at Zhang Chao Wen, “You are here, Department Head Zhang? You must be here to talk about Zhuang Nai Nai.”
Zhang Chao Wen hardens his face, “Correct. She played with her phone during meeting, too reckless and irresponsible. I suggest we fire her.”
Su Jin Hui, who originally plans to leave, immediately stops in his steps, “It is not that serious. This is just a little misunderstanding, nothing a small reprimanding couldn’t solve.”
Zhang Chao Wen blows up like a cat whose tail has just been stepped on, “I believe this matter is within my Site Design Department, Vice Director Su. What does it has anything to do with you?”
Su Jin Hui frowns, “If we fire a worker over something so small, this matter will spread and taint our reputation. People will say we mistreat our employees.”
Zhang Chao Wen sneers at him, “Are you saying that Mr. Si mistreated his workers?”
Su Jin Hui is taken aback, “I didn’t mean it that way. You………..”
“Do you remember the meeting of the Board of Directors back then? Even us, Department Heads had to take part in that meeting. A ringing phone disturbed us and Mr. Si fired that staff on the spot. Are you saying that Mr. Si mistreated his employee?”
Su Jin Hui chokes a little when he hears that.
That staff back then, was actually an industrial spy. Mr. Si simply used that excuse to fire him off back then. Who would have thought that Zhang Chao Wen would bring it up right now?
How could Su Jin Hui retort against that? Don’t tell him that Zhuang Nai Nai will actually get fired this time?
