C38 – One More Zero

Wen Shuyue was ill in the hospital for a few days, and no one else came to visit her except Lin Lin from time to time. Baobao still didn’t know she was in the hospital.

Lin Lin did an excellent job of keeping secrets for Wen Shuyue, even though she always spoke her mind out with no concern for others. Wen Baobao always believed in everything she told him.

But now a question haunted Wen Shuyue.

Since Mannis and MK had several meetings these days, did He Siming really not notice anything wrong every time she was not present?

Or did he just regard her as Baobao’s mother and feel nothing else about her?

The more Wen Shuyue thought about it, the more depressed she became.

“Alas!” She sighed with helplessness.

It seemed that her previous favorable impression of He Siming was only her wishful thinking.

After being discharged from the hospital, Wen Shuyue did not go home, but went directly to the company. Gu Ning seemed to know that she was going to be discharged today, so he waited for her in the office early.

“Did He Siming come to see you these days? Or did he call and text you?” Gu Ning just opened his mouth, and it was about He Siming. Wen Shuyue had been used as a bargaining chip to defeat He Siming.

It was such a distasteful topic that Wen Shuyue involuntarily frowned and said, “No.”  

“Really?” Gu Ning obviously didn’t believe it, looking puzzled and raising his eyebrows at her.

Did He Siming have to visit her?

Wen Shuyue forcibly suppressed her disgust and pretended to be calm and said, “I don’t have to lie to you about that, Mr. Gu. If you don’t believe me, you can go to the hospital to check the surveillance camera, or check my chats and communications.”

Even if Gu Ning didn’t believe her, he couldn’t say any more.  

“Shuyue, what are you talking about? Of course, I still believe what you said. I just didn’t think He Siming would do the same to you. I thought you’d be the special one. ” Gu Ning smiled and said with a faint mockery.

His words deeply stimulated Wen Shuyue. Although she tried not to think about it, Gu Ning’s mockery intentionally or unintentionally made Wen Shuyue feel a dull pain in her heart.

After taking a deep breath and trying to compose herself, she said seriously, “In that case, you don’t have to let me be your spy in their company.”  

“We’ll take a long view of the matter. I’ll let you know when we get there.” Gu Ning got up slowly and just glanced at her and went out.  

He wasn’t ready to give up yet.

Wen Shuyue smiled bitterly and thought to herself, ” I would rather have been qualified to spy on Mannis, but He Siming didn’t give a s*** about me. If it is not for Wen Baobao, I guess he would not choose to cooperate with me at all. “

At that moment, Wen Shuyue seemed to have no confidence in herself. He Siming was so mysterious that he made her feel weak and insignificant.

But so what? Now that they had cooperated to this point, she must be as confident in herself as before. He Siming was demanding, but she would always find a way to deal with it.

Knock knock!

There was a knock at the door outside.

“Come in.”

“Miss Wen, Mr. Gu asked you to stay tonight and take care of the project closing.” Xiaolu came in with a pile of papers and put them on her desk.

Wen Shuyue frowned. “If I remember correctly, wasn’t this project supposed to end the day after tomorrow? Why do I have to cope with it now?” 

Xiaolu, too, was lost in thought, but soon shook her head. “I don’t know about that. Mr. Gu said you should make the closing perfect and mustn’t let Mannis pick out any faults.”

Gu Ning seemed determined to make use of her.

Wen Shuyue grew irritated, and though she did not speak, what she meant was self-evident.

Because she had to work overtime in the evening, she couldn’t pick up Baobao. But Lin Lin couldn’t make it today, either. In desperation, Wen Shuyue called He Siming.

The phone was connected, but no one spoke for a long time.

Wen Shuyue swallowed and asked cautiously, “Mr. He, would you please pick up Baobao for me tonight? I have to work overtime today.”

“Well, when?” A cold voice came from the other end of the phone, making Wen SHuyue feel a chill. 

“Now. Just in time.” Wen Shuyue quickly finished and hung up.

She and He Siming didn’t have a great relationship before, but now she felt that they were even more distant than they had been at the beginning.

Wen Shuyue didn’t know what was wrong with her. She always felt unhappy and blue. She hated it, and she didn’t want to have this bad feeling because of a man.

But as much as she hated it, there was no way to shake it off. Wen Shuyue was almost out of state and made several flaws in her work.  

“Miss Wen, the figure is two hundred million, but you entered one more zero.”

Xiaolu didn’t know how many times she reminded Wen Shuyue. Looking at Wen Shuyue’s state, Xiaolu was really worried about her.

“Huh? I’m sorry. I’ll correct it now.” Wen Shuyue quickly came back from her mind, but instead of removing the zero, she added one more. 

Perhaps realizing she was wrong, Wen Shuyue sighed with exasperation.

Xiaolu wanted to say something else, but when she saw Wen Shuyue like this, she could only swallow what she thought and looked at her obediently.

“Xiaolu, revise this plan first, and then don’t hand it in tonight. I’ll go through it tomorrow.” Wen Shuyue finally gave up.  

Working in this state would only give people more chances to capitalize on her work. She must not do anything wrong at this critical moment.

“Yes, Miss Wen,” Xiaolu responded and then took over Wen Shuyue’s work.

Wen Shuyue was about to go out for a walk when she bumped into a cold body.

“Hiss!” She could not help but gasp in pain.

She was about to lose her temper when she saw a pair of cold amber eyes. He Siming looked at her faintly, and the depth of his eyes was full of alienation and indifference.

Wen Baobao said while waving his tiny hands before Wen Shuyue’s eyes, bending his head to her side and said, “Mommy, are you hurt by being bumped? I warned you to watch your step, but you won’t listen.”

The sweet voice of her son pulled Wen Shuyue back from her thoughts. She stooped down, smiled at him and said, “Mommy will be careful next time. Don’t worry about me.”
