Chapter 104: Return to Qinghe City

“That’s right, the Xia Group in Qinghe City… Brother, do you have any friends there?”


Zhang Wen and Xiao Li remained silent. Su Xiaoxiao31Su XiaoxiaoSu Qiubai's sister; also written as Xiao Xiao in this novel. nodded while looking at Su Qiubai23Su QiubaiProtagonist, a taxi driver with a powerful and mysterious navigation system. Sometimes written as the old driver in this novel.

Su Qiubai completely did not expect Manager Zhu to be a member of the Xia Group. All of a sudden, an excessive number of solutions popped up in his mind; he didn’t even know which one to choose.

However, his sudden silence made the three girls standing opposite of him misunderstand him. The three of them became gloomy instantly.


“You don’t have to worry. If it doesn’t work out, I can find another job.”

Zhang Wen probably thought that Su Qiubai was troubled, so she spoke out first.


“No trouble! There’s no trouble at all. He just needs to make a phone call.”


Cao Toufei really couldn’t hold back it any longer, so he spoke before Su Qiubai could react. That gave the three girls some hope.


“It’s really no trouble at all. Let me make the phone call.”


Su Qiubai smiled before turning and walking out.

In the room, Cao Toufei continued to reassure Su Xiaoxiao and her friends, but in his heart, he was mumbling to himself. If Su Qiubai couldn’t resolve a situation like this, then no one else could.

Su Qiubai called Xia Rongrong30Xia RongrongPresident/CEO of the Xia Group, one of the few wealthy and powerful company/family at Qinghe City after coming out of the private dining room.


“Are you coming back tomorrow? Is Xiao Xiao doing fine over there?”

Xia Rongrong was surprised to hear that Su Qiubai was planning to return to Qinghe City.

“Yes, everything is settled here… I have something to ask you though…”

After responding to her, Su Qiubai told her about Manager Zhu.

“There’s indeed an advertising company in Dong Hai but I don’t know if there’s a manager named Zhu. I’ll call up the company later and handle it… Drive safely tomorrow.”

Xia Rongrong said this without the slightest hesitation.

Su Qiubai felt inexplicably warm in his heart. They chatted for a while before hanging up the call.

Su Qiubai didn’t know whether it was just his feelings, but it seemed that ever since Xia Rongrong had left Dong Hai, accidents happened in Qinghe City, but she never told him about them, so he didn’t know if his guess was right or not.

Suddenly, he was a little worried, but the thought that he was returning to Qinghe City soon calmed him down, as things would naturally clear up then.

In the dining room, Su Xiaoxiao and Zhang Wen were waiting anxiously for Su Qiubai. After seeing him enter, they all cast their gazes on him.

“It’s fine now, you just go to work as usual.”

Su Qiubai grinned and told Zhang Wen.

“Really?” Zhang Wen felt slightly incredulous.

She knew that Manager Zhu had some influence in the company, and that the Xia Group itself was a large company, so having some private relationships were sometimes not as useful as others might think.

“Of course it’s true, rest assured.”

Cao Toufei once again blurted out without holding back.

Su Qiubai was the savior of Xia Group, and a major shareholder of the entire group. How couldn’t this matter be solved?

Although Zhang Wen still felt worried, she just remained quiet.

The evening then ended like how it was supposed to: everyone got drunk before they left.

……

The next day, Zhang Wen hesitated for a long time before she packed up her things and went to the company. On the way, she was already ready to be fired.

Although Su Qiubai assured that everything would be fine, she was too aware of the kind of person Manager Zhu was. If he let this matter go, it was as if the sun had risen from the West!


Sure enough, as she entered the company, she noticed that the way everyone looked at her wasn’t right.

Zhang Wen’s heartbeat quickened; she had a bad feeling.

Slowly walking up the stairs, she glanced at Manager Zhu’s office door, unsure if he was present or not.

Zhang Wen felt even more nervous. She was ready for him to request for her to resign.


It could be a psychological effect, but she felt as if there was something wrong with the whole company’s atmosphere today, especially the fact that the colleagues she had a good relationship with didn’t come over to talk to her.

Just as she was feeling extremely nervous, Manager Zhu came out of the office.

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

Strange. His expression was full of shock and despair, and he was holding a box in his arms.

What… What’s happening?

Zhang Wen felt that something was wrong, especially when Manager Zhu looked at her with his eyes showing a sense of unwillingness.


She didn’t understand what was happening. Then, the vice-president, who was rarely present in the company, actually appeared and ran towards her.

“You’re Zhang Wen, right? The company has responded to Manager Zhu’s inappropriate actions and problematic attitude. He is fired… In addition, there has been a notice that your salary is doubled next month.”

Zhang Wen was dumbfounded as she listened to his words.

This was the first time that the vice president had taken the initiative to talk to her, and he even said that… her salary was doubled.

“But…but, I’m only a part-time worker.” Finally, Zhang Wen forced a sentence out of her mouth.

“So what? We need talents like you.”

After that, the vice-president revealed a kind smile before returning to his office.

Until the moment Manager Zhu exited, Zhang Wen was unable to react as she listened to her colleagues congratulate her.

The revenge she had imagined didn’t occur; instead, there was such an unexpected outcome.

In a dazed state, she thought of the phone call Su Qiubai had made last night. She couldn’t help but wonder…

What’s Su Xiaoxiao’s brother’s true identity?

……

As Su Qiubai was ready to leave Dong Hai, he coincidentally met Gu Chengya29Gu ChengyaAlso written as Cheng Ya or Miss Gu. The mistress of the Gu family; Grandpa Gu's favourite granddaughter..

Seeing Gu Chengya in a simple cowgirl outfit and a cap, Su Qiubai felt a familiar feeling. This was how they first met.

Sure enough, just like what she had said, Mr. Dongfang was here as well.


It was true that the old gentleman was really persistent. He exchanged a few words with Su Qiubai. And half of them were about calligraphy works. Even if Su Qiubai deliberately wanted to talk about other topics, he would quickly return to his original topic.


Su Qiubai shook his head secretly; he couldn’t do anything about it. He tried to figure out what to do in order to stop him from talking.


Otherwise, if this old man was to follow him to Qinghe City and find out that there weren’t any  so-called calligraphy works, it would be a huge offense to him!


Just like that, they left Donghai City.


Even Su Qiubai didn’t expect that so many things would happen in such a short period of time. Now, thinking back, the mass murder at Jiangbei Mountain was the most unforgettable event.


Especially the death of Xia Tian!


After silently admonishing himself, he stepped on the gas pedal, and the team behind him followed closely to Qinghe City.


At Qinghe City, Xia Rongrong felt incomprehensible after hearing that Su Qiubai was returning.

Even she wasn’t aware that she had a feeling of dependence towards this man.

Just like Su Qiubai had guessed, an incident that nobody had expected had happened in the Xia Group.


Initially, the company was flourishing, but then, something bad happened.

On the second day in Donghai City, the Xia Group’s successful business had been cheated by a scammer, and tens of millions of dollars were later discovered to be completely fraud.


It was because of this that Xia Rongrong had to urgently return from Dong Hai to Qinghe City.

In just a blink of an eye, it had been a week since the incident. They had already made a police report, but there was still no news until now.


The tens of millions of dollars wasn’t a small amount for any company, so even if the Xia Group was a huge corporate business, this loss was like a disastrous tsunami to them too.


Xia Rongrong’s assistant rubbed her forehead and came into her office with a cup of coffee in her hand.


“President Xia, you should take a break.”


The assistant felt distressed for this woman. Because of the capital sponsored, everyone thought that the future of the Xia Group was guaranteed.


However, who knew that something like this would happen? Some people were gossiping that the company was completely done for.


Xia Rongrong was speechless. She took the cup of coffee but didn’t drink it; instead, she just left it on the table. Her face was pale.

She had used all her means to rule out the impacts of this incident this whole week, but many problems were still irreparable, causing her to be in despair.


However, Xia Rongrong had experienced bigger blows than this, so she was confident that she could survive this difficult time.


Besides… Su Qiubai was coming back.


She was surprised that this thought had actually come to her mind, because what could Su Qiubai even do when he returned?


But… wasn’t life always this mysterious?
