Here is a short sample from the book:
Today is my ovulation period.
My name is Lizzy Zoe. I am 27 years old and single.
I caught the man tonight at the bar. I want a child and want to borrow his seed. Because I'm not going to get married in this life.
"Luna, don't go …"
The man kissed the cinnabar mole between my eyebrows and shouted vaguely the name of a woman.
Luna？ Who is she? It seems that he likes women.
It doesn't matter. All that I want is a perfect baby.
So, I felt at ease, brazenly deceive him, "Yes, I'm here. I'm here…"
I didn't expect that I would suffer this kind of pain. Fortunately, the man's skill was good. Well, it's more than good. Finally, a tremendous satisfaction surrounded me.
It was so brilliant and fascinating that I thought I would die at that moment.
When I woke up the next morning, the man was still asleep. I choked back my aching pain and put on my clothes, ready to run away.
The moment I closed the door, I looked back.
The man slept soundly. In the morning light, he looked so handsome that I could hardly move my eyes away.
The quilt was wrapped around his waist, revealing his strong chest. He had a perfect shape.
Looking at this stunner, I solemnly swore in my heart that I will take good care of our child and make her a good doll with all-round development in morality, intelligence, physique, arts, and labor.
With a good mood, I hung out with my best friend Katy Van.
"Katy, congratulations to me. I made it last night. Ten months later, I will be a mother!"
Taking a large cup of coffee, I told Katy Van the whole thing proudly.
Katy Van stared at me like I'm mad, "Really? How could you really sleep with a stranger? "
I pulled open my collar and proudly showed the hickey.
Katy Van had almost faint, "Awesome!"
She asked me with questions, "Who is that man? Have you done any background checks? Is he married? Does he have hepatitis B, AIDS, genetic disease? "
I totally had no idea. "…"
Katy Van rolled her eyes.
I added, "I have been watching him for a long time. On the 15th of every month, he would go to the Moonlight bar. He was all alone and never flirted with any women. So I think the guy is very healthy."
Katy Van was speechless.“……”
After arguing for a while, neither of us could convince each other. Finally, we began to discuss the personnel changes at the top of the company.
"The influence of this customer data leak was too bad. I heard that the board of directors has decided to give up Mr. Zhang." Katy Van said in a low voice.
She is always well informed.
"Who will replace him?"
"It is said that the new boss was invited from the top 500 companies, who is only 32 years old. "
"It doesn't matter. Though the boss is always changing, the company is always there. We are too insignificant to be affected."
Katy Van and I are colleagues and both work for a foreign insurance company.
I am from the actuarial department, and she is from the customer service department.
While chatting, my mother called.
"Lizzy, are you free now? I want to tell you something. "
My mother asked timidly.
I sighed, "Yes."
"Aunt Chou wanted to introduce you to a very nice young man. When will you be free? She could arrange the time for you to meet the young man. "
It was another blind date.
My mother is an unemployed old lady, and I never figure out where does she get so many single young men?
"Well, I'm free this weekend." I was very easygoing and agreed to her arrangement. My mother likes to cry. I don't want to see her tears.
Her tone of surprise made me suddenly sad.
She divorced my father for more than ten years. My father got married to his mistress and had other children. The family of four has had a prosperous life.
When I was young, I watched my mother being hit by my father and kneeling on the ground begging my father to break up with his mistress.
Disputes, quarrels, hits, betrayals … This is all my impression of my parents' marriage.
Therefore, I don't trust marriage or men.
I never expected that the new boss Mr. Chuang was the man that night!
At the welcome ceremony, seeing the man, I was so shocked that I almost became faint.
What kind of world is this? This is to drive people to a dead-end!
After several years of hard work, I have managed to become a small head of the actuarial department. How coincident it is that I slept with my new boss.
Having an affair with the boss is the No.1 taboo in the workplace.
I lowered my head guiltily, trying to narrow myself down, not wanting him to notice me.
When the meeting was over, everyone left the office, I looked at him secretly.
This glance scared the daylights out of me! OMG! He is staring at me, with his bright eyes!
He recognized me, he recognized me …
I was trembling as I walked toward the door when I suddenly heard him ask chief actuary Lin, "Which department does the lady in black dress belong to?"
I looked down at my black dress, and I couldn't help trembling.
"Mr. Chuang, she is the head of the actuarial department. Her name is Lizzy Zoe." Lin stopped me, "Lizzy, come here."
I walked stiffly to William Chuang and smiled awkwardly, "Hi, Mr. Chuang"
William Chuang was wearing a navy blue shirt, with fair skin and handsome appearance. He looked like a frigid elite.
His wild and fiery appearance in bed suddenly appeared in my mind. My face blushed and I quickly lowered my eyes.
"Lizzy is very shy today," director Lin teased me, "not like your usual being."
"Well, I have always been very reserved and introverted." I was so embarrassed that I started to talk nonsense.
Then, I heard a very slight hissing sound.
Yes, it came from William Chuang! He is laughing at me!
Don't think you could treat me like this just because of a one-night stand. Well, you really enjoyed it, right?
I looked up at him grudgingly when he looked at me with his meaningful eyes.
His eyes were full of banter, sarcasm, and even desire I couldn't understand.
I thought this was the end of the line.
But when I was about to be off duty, when William Chuang's assistant called me on the inside and told me that Mr. Chuang wanted to see me!
Boss wants to see me, can I dare to say no?
I walked into the president's office with a low profile and stood upright in front of his desk.
“Lizzy Zoe。” William Chuang spoke slowly as if playing with me with his voice.
"What can I do for you, Mr. Chuang?" I tried hard to fake a smile.
William Chuang took out a bank card from his desk drawer and handed it over. "There are 20,000 dollars in it. Since we didn't take any safety measures that night, it is necessary for you to see a doctor if you have any trouble."
After being stunned for a second, I quickly picked up the bank card and gave him a charming smile, "Okay."
William Chuang smiled and said in a sarcastic tone, "I thought you would pretend to refuse."
"If I don't take the money, you won't be at ease. Besides, I don't want to have any trouble. " I looked at him sincerely.
This time, I got the real money from the one-night stand. Getting a baby for nothing and 20,000 dollars for child care. Cool!
The longer I looked at William Chuang, the more pleased I was. And my smile thus became much sincerer.
Suddenly William Chuang pinched my chin. The man's cool breath fell on my face and itched a little.
He lowered his voice and stared at me with his dark eyes, "Are you seducing me? "
Who seduced him? I just smiled a little sweeter for the sake of money. How self-centered he is!
"Don't you admit it?" His breath was closer. His fingers moved from my chin to my lips slowly, touching my lips an inch by inch.
His fingers were full of teasing, however, obviously William Chuang's deep eyes did not show any lust.
He is teasing me.
I was annoyed and opened my mouth to bite his index finger.
He did not move and looked at me coldly.
I bit his finger more fiercely.
He still did not move. Just put his finger in my mouth.
I dared not to bite again. This is the boss whom I can't irritate.
I loosened my teeth. His finger slowly pulled out.
As I breathed a sigh of relief, his fingers slowly reached in again.
So back and forth for three or four times, I suddenly understood!
Son of b*tch！My face flushed with shame and I pushed him away. Too d*mn obscene!
"Ha!" William Chuang laughed with his bright white teeth. My anger made him very happy. The prank succeeded and his mood was very good.
Bastard! I wish you a bad life.
When I rushed out of the office, I still cursed him silently.
"Lizzy, why did your boss want from you?" Katy Van came off work with me and asked me casually.
I told Katy Van the identity of William Chuang and sighed bitterly, "I suspect I will not stay in Liam Corporation for a long time. It's a pity that I have to give up my wonderful career life! "
Katy Van's eyes sparkled, "Oh my god! Life is more dramatic than the TV series! How could you be so lucky? "
"Lucky? Seriously?" I asked angrily.
"Of course, Mr. Chuang is a handsome man in a high position. I heard that his family background is also very good. I think you might as well seize the opportunity to make him your boyfriend. "
"Who wants a boyfriend? I have no intention of getting married in my life. You knew it! " I replied contemptuously.
"We are adults with physiological needs, aren't we? If you do not want to get married, you could still try to sustain a romantic relationship with such a handsome guy. Not to mention he will be the father of your kid. "
"Shh! Keep your voice down. All that I want is a baby, I don't want to have anything to do with any man."
A few days later, I realized that I might not be able to keep my words.
There were so many things to deal with that day, so I stayed at the company and worked overtime.
When I left the office, I found it was raining heavily outside.
I didn't bring my umbrella. It was very late, no one was left in the company, so it was impossible for me to borrow an umbrella.
I leaned against the pillar to wait for the rain to be light.
Then a BMW came out of the underground garage and slowly stopped by my side.
When the window fell, William Chuang raised his chin at me: "Get in the car."
Get in the car? Probably not. I hesitated.
I didn't expect this fellow didn't give me a chance to think for a second, and shut the window without saying anything.
The car was about to leave when I shouted, "Wait!"
When I climbed onto the car, William Chuang turned to glance at me and gave me a sneer.
"What are you laughing at?" I was wet in the rain and was in a bad mood.
"I thought you might have been too tough to accept me!" He began to satirize me again. The car entered the main road.
"Smart one always makes the right decision. And that's me." I leaned back wearily. I was very tired of working overtime as I'm aged.
He didn't speak, it was quiet in the car.
I was supposed to be nervous when I stayed in the car with the boss. However, I didn't feel it at all.
I have to admit, once a man and a woman have an affair, things would be different.
My home is not far from the company. When I got home, I remembered that my cell phone was running out of power and was about to recharge it.
So I searched in the pocket of my dress, but I got nothing.
That's impossible. I had answered my mother's phone when I was in the car.
My phone must have been left on William Chuang's car.
I tried to call my own number by using my mother's phone. It's turned off. The power must have been run out of.
Well, I decided to take a shower and sleep, and ask William Chuang for it tomorrow.
I was about to take a bath when I heard a light knock on the door.
Who is that? I was really alerted. Who will knock on my door at this time?
I looked through the door viewer. The corridor was dim and I couldn't see it clearly. However, I think it was William Chuang according to the figure.
I quickly opened the door and went out. My mother and my sister both fell asleep and I didn't want to wake them.
"Mr. Chuang, why are you here? How do you know I live here? " I asked a series of questions.
William Chuang didn't answer my question. His eyes slipped from my face to my chest and stared for three seconds.
I looked down and my face flushed.
The band of my robe was loose, the neckline was too big so that most of my chest was exposed.
I quickly gathered up my nightgown and looked at him calmly. "Mr. Chuang, my cell phone seems to be left in your car, do you …"
Before I finished speaking, he handed over the phone to me.
Before I could hold it firmly, he let it go, making my phone fell to the ground.
Oh, dear! I hurriedly bent down to pick it up, but he also bent down at the same time. We both ran into each other at once.
I was panicked and stepped back. Then I found myself stepping on the edge of the stairs and nearly fell.
William Chuang grabbed me and made me fall into his arms.
I didn't wear underwear, my chest firmly-hit him, we could feel each other through a thin layer of a nightgown. His muscles are firm and compact, completely different from mine.
I could smell the mixed air of peppermint and a young man from him which made me dizzy for a moment.
"Why are you in such a hurry?" His voice sounded sarcastic.
I suddenly become sober, push him away.
"Don't be so arrogant! Its you！You pulled me into your arms. " I was so panic that I started to fight back, "Don't think too highly of yourself. Not every woman wants to stay with you."
"Really?" He stood idly and looked at me scornfully, "haven't you stayed with me that night?"
"I …" I was speechless, keeping on blathering, "So what? It was not a good experience that I almost forgot it."
I totally forget one thing that men hate people saying they are weak on the bed!
William Chuang's eyes narrowed dangerously. "Not good? Are you sure？" He stretched out his hand to hold my chin in a cold tone, "but I remember, you seem to have come for three …"
My face brushed again unwillingly, "Nonsense! Not even once! "
I will never admit it!
I tried to get rid of his hand, but he grabbed my wrist so tightly.
His hand reached directly into my nightgown, touching my breast deliberately.
"Leave me alone. It's hurt! " I kicked him angrily.
"What about this?" He smiled wickedly, lowering his strength and teasing me.
"William Chuang, you are sick! You … " I was stopped by his lips.
He deliberately teased me with his lips and tongue. The man is full of tricks, which drove me crazy.
My legs were too soft to stand on. I could only cling to his neck and lean on him tightly.
Then his hand reached into the bottom of my skirt.
"No!" I suddenly wake up, am I crazy? How could I do such a thing with him in front of my house!
His breathing was also heavy. He took back his hand and held it up in front of me. "Lizzy Zoe, can't you see? It is so easy for me to drive you crazy with only one finger."
There was sweat on his forehead, his eyes were full of desire which he tried to hide -it looks somewhat sexy.
"Shameless!" I glared at him severely and ran back to my home.
Shutting the door, my heart is still pounding.
No, I have to stop it. I absolutely can't have any more private contact with him. This man is too dangerous.
Of course, I didn't fall in love with him.
But there is no denying that my body seems to remember his taste and has a strong reaction to him.
In the company, William Chuang and I don't actually have any contact.
After all, he is a big boss, I am just a small supervisor, and there is no chance to contact him in business because there are different levels such as director and chief actuary.
Therefore, as long as I make up my mind to avoid him, I will be safe.
On the weekend, my mother urged me to go on a blind date, saying that aunt Zhou had already arranged it.
I chose a dress casually and went out. Anyway, it's just a routine, makeup is a waste of time.
Unexpectedly, life once again played a big joke on me.
Seeing my blind date, I was almost faint because of excitement!
It was my monitor! My blind date turned out to be Noble Liu, the monitor of my high school.
I had a crush on him for seven years, from high school to graduation from university. Until I heard of his engagement, I stopped being a fan of him.
He was shocked to see me, "Lizzy Zoe? Is it really you? I thought it was just a coincidence. "
Oh, it was absolutely my fault. I never listen to my mother when she told me the name of my blind date.
I looked at him with gratefulness.
He is no longer the handsome young man of that year. His clothes were a bit old-fashioned, and his hair even began to wither, making him much older than his actual age.
However, his temperament is still so good, modest, and gentle.
My eyes suddenly became moist.
We sat down and talked about our recent situation.
I was told that he had just graduated as a Doctor and applied for a post-doctoral post to study the most unpopular ancient Chinese phonology.
He has no house, no car, no savings, the only thing he has is full of talent.
"Lizzy, that's great, I really didn't think it was you. Great. " He rubbed his hands excitedly, "In fact, there is one thing I have always wanted to say to you."
"What is it?" I smiled softly.
He stuttered, lowering his head completely without looking at me, "In fact, in fact, in the beginning …"
"What happened?" I suddenly became nervous. His eyes and expression made me realize something.
"In the beginning, I liked you." His hands hold the handle of the coffee cup and his fingertips were trembling with nervousness.
I couldn't say a word and suddenly my tight muscles relaxed. I wanted to cry.
"I'm sorry, did I scare you?" He looked up at me apologetically. "I'm sorry, I just … don't want to leave any regrets."
I forced back my tears and shook my head. "Thank you, Noble. Thank you for liking me."
Seven years, I had a crush on him for seven years.
However, when I heard him say he liked me before, my heart was only full of sadness and no happiness.
Things are changed, we can't go back.
Suddenly, I heard a bitter female voice,
"Wow! Who is here and dating with a nobody! "
Hearing the sound, I didn't even bother to look back. Only Candy Wu can make such an annoying sound.
Candy Wu is my half-sister and the illegitimate daughter of my father Peter Wu, she was only two months younger than me.
When my mother was pregnant, my ruthless father had banged her shameless mother.
Candy Wu, dressed like a peacock, walked to my desk with her hips twisted and looked at Noble Liu frivolously and haughtily.
Noble Liu frowned and asked me, "Lizzy, who is this?"
I took a sip of coffee. "This is, ah, the daughter of a shameless mistress, the godmother of young models, and the example of the Internet influencers, Candy· Wu, who is famous for her face being experienced several plastic surgeries.
To tell the truth, I can't figure out why she named herself like this.
This is a common name for prostitutes. Indeed, the ignorant are fearless in the world.
Noble Liu burst into laughter.
Candy Wu's face darkened.
She raised her hand and tried to slap me, but I quickly dodged aside.
“Lizzy Zoe！ F*ck you! Do you eat with this mouth? Look what kind of man you are dating with! Your mother should feel shameful that she has a daughter like you. "
As soon as she mentioned my mother, I was out of rage.
I picked up the coffee and poured it on her face. I was very happy to see it dripping down her face.
I would never forget when I was five years old, my father kicked me away to take care of her.
The day went on without any big changes, except Noble Liu, who started to pursue me.
His way of pursuit is subtle and elegant.
He usually sent me a few flowers, tickets of opera, and even traditional five-character poetry written by myself.
It is kind of sweet.
However, I'm not tempted.
If the destination of love is marriage, then I would rather not love, but to be lonely forever.
During dinner, my mother told me, "Your aunt's son has passed the examination for Zhejiang University. Tomorrow they will hold a graduation banquet. You'd better go for a visit."
Although my father is a scumbag, my aunt is quite nice. We've been keeping in contact for these years.
"Fine." I nodded and looked at my sister who was absorbed in her meal, so I patted her cheek. "Vivian, you're going to take the college entrance examination next year, so you should work harder."
My younger sister is Vivian Zoe who is 17 years old. It is her third year in high school. She is under big pressure. Fortunately, she has always been a good girl with good grades.
My sister looked up, her eyes are wide and round. "Our teacher said that as long as I keep my current grades, I would have no problem entering the national key university!"
"Your teacher just tried to encourage you. Are you taking it seriously? " My mother laughed.
"Mom! Don't be so disheartened. " I pouted discontentedly, "Our Vivian is always so excellent."
Looking at my younger sister's childlike face, I felt very proud.
My younger sister is academically excellent and very lovely. She is the beauty of her school. My mother and I have been adoring her.
I didn't expect to see William Chuang again at my cousin's graduation party.
I haven't seen him for half a month. He seems to be slimmer. Wearing a white shirt, he looks very refreshing and pleasing.
My aunt saw me staring at him and said to me, "He is William Chuang, whose father is a provincial party committee official, and he helped your uncle before. This time we tried very hard to invite him.
I didn't say anything, even I knew William Chuang, I didn't bother to explain.
Anyway, we won't have any contact in the future.
After greeting my congratulations, I intended to leave. My aunt tried to persuade me to stay, "Lizzy, stay for the lunch, just for me, OK?"
I know, she tried to ease the tension between my dad and me.
"All right." I agreed. After we were kicked out of the house by Peter Wu, we couldn't afford my sister's tuition, without my aunt's help.
Over the years, my aunt has been helping us. I'm grateful, so I agreed to stay for the sake of my aunt.
Soon, I regretted it.
Because I found out that I was sitting at the same table with Candy Wu, Peter Wu, Lilly Gai who is Candy Wu's mother with a ridiculous name, and William Chuang.
We had eye contact, but none of us have expressions.
"Candy, talk with Mr. Chuang. Young people always have a shared topic." Lilly Gai smiled obsequiously and squeezed her eyes at Candy Wu.
Lilly Gai was very clear about William Chuang's background, so she was in a hurry to marry her daughter to the wealthy family.
"Mom …" Candy Wu smiled shyly and turned to William Chuang. "May I call you William? It is a bit strange to call you Mr. Chuang. "
She made her look silly by pretending to smile. For a moment, I doubt that her makeup on her face was falling off because of her horrible smile.
William Chuang was very good at acting in front of people and he smiled like a real gentleman, "Of course. There is no need to be so formal. "
I couldn't help rolling my eyes.
They two may be able to make a couple, they are really good at pretending.
I was too busy eating to take any notice of these hypocritical people.
Unexpectedly, Peter Wu tried to embarrass me. "Lizzy, why did you bully your sister? How could you pour coffee on her face and curse our whole family? "
I stared at him with innocent eyes, "Did I? Don't take me wrong. I am very kind to Vivian. "
Peter Wu's face darkened. "I said you bullied Candy."
“Candy？ My sister? " I sneered, "My surname is Zoe while her surname is Wu. How could she be my sister?"
After my parents divorced, I changed my surname to Zoe which is the surname of my mother.
Peter Wu was so angry that he slapped his chopsticks on the table.
"Peter …" Lilly Gai gave him a nudge. "Today is a good day for your nephew. Don't be angry."
Then she smiled at me hypocritically, "Lizzy, don't be so aggressive. Your father is not in good health. As a daughter, you should be more considerate. I know you have a problem with Candy, but you have to admit that Candy is a little bit better than you. She never retorts to her father. But you are always so aggressive that you don't show respect to people.
All of a sudden, I became very furious.
How could the shameless woman teach me a lesson? My mother never blames me like this. Did she really think she was qualified to teach me a lesson in front of so many people?
I stood up, lower my voice, saying, "Why don't you take a mirror to look at your disgusting face? What qualifications do you have to teach me? You are the shameless one to bang another woman's husband and give birth to two b*stard. How dare you to teach me? My mother … "
Before I had finished speaking, I felt a sharp pain on my cheek. My eyes flamed with fury, and my ears were buzzing.
I was slapped by Peter Wu and fell to the ground.
"Oh, Peter! Stop! No matter how rude and unreasonable she is, Lizzy is your daughter. Don't be so angry."
Lilly Gai pretended to persuade Peter Wu gently. However, she deliberately stepped on my ankle severely with her high heel under the tablecloth.
“Lilly Gai！You b*tch! I'll kill you! " I was so irritated that I tried to tear her apart.
Lilly Gai was scared to hide in Peter Wu's arms. Peter Wu tried to slap me again, but in vain. I was out of my mind, so I grabbed the hot soup from the table and threw it to him.
The soup spilled all over Peter Wu.
"You unfilial daughter! I'll kill you!!" Peter Wu became furious and began to roll up his sleeves.
The private room was in chaos.
Some people pulled Peter Wu to stop the fight. Some people tried to talk to me. My ears were buzzing and I couldn't hear anything at all.
In the chaos, I saw William Chuang.
He sat motionless at the table, quietly looking at me, with his icy lake-like eyes.
I hate his eyes.
His eyes made me feel self-pitying. It made me feel being abandoned by the whole world.
So I raised my head to sneer at him, and raised my middle finger defiantly.
When I got home, my mother saw my injured cheeks and asked anxiously, "Lizzy, what happened to you? Did you quarrel with Candy Wu again? Did she hit you again? "
"Yes." I pretended that I didn't care, "she slapped me and I slapped her twice. I have won! "
My mother sighed silently and took the ointment to cure my face.
After applying the ointment, she tentatively asked me, "So when Candy Wu hit you, did your father stop her?"
Hearing my mother's words, my tears almost came out.
I lowered my head to prevent her from seeing the tears in my eyes, "He's not there."
My poor, weak, timid, and obedient mother, who loved Peter Wu for decades, haven't realized his ruthlessness and ferocity until she was thrown out.
She naively thought that even if he did not love her, he would always take care of the children.
Mom doesn't know. I have no father for a long time. My father was dead.
On that day when he kicked me even I was only five years old, he was already dead.
After a while, my aunt called me.
She was not there when the farce was staged in the private room today. She knew what happened just now.
"Lizzy, you silly child, why did you quarrel with your father again?" My aunt said disappointedly.
"Dad? I don't have a father, my father would have died! " I said coldly.
The aunt was speechless for a moment, "What's good for you to decrease the relations with your father? If you try to be nice and make him happy, you and Vivian can spend some of his money. "
"I don't care. My salary is not low and I can support our family without his money. "
Aunt interrupted me, "I was about to tell you about it. William Chuang also works at Liam Corporation. He is your boss now, isn't he? "
"Mmm." I became alarmed, "What's the matter?"
"I heard your cousin say that Candy told William Chuang a lot of bad things about you and urged him to fire you after she knew William Chuang was your boss."
"What a b*tch!" I couldn't help swearing, "I work hard and never make mistakes. Why will William Chuang fire me?"
"Be careful." My aunt sighed, "Candy seems to have affection for William Chuang, and Lilly Gai has been bringing them together. I was afraid if William Chuang believed Candy's words, he would have a bad impression on you. "
"Whatever, I don't care."
My ability to work is not bad and is well-known in the company. I am not afraid of Candy Wu's slanderous remarks!
But I didn't expect things would go contrary to my wishes.
Recently, I have been working overtime for a new insurance product.
The company attaches great importance to this product. The model and premium have passed all kinds of internal tests. The chief actuary has already signed the filing materials. When the company seal it and submitted it to the CIRC for filing, it can be sold on the market.
However, at the crucial moment, the manager of the Underwriting and Assessment Department said that there was something wrong with our modeling, and rejected the whole process.
After the meeting, Mr. Lin's face was gloomy.
I am in charge of the evaluation, so I have to take the consequences.
I was promoted by Mr. Lin. He had been trusting me a lot. However, I made such a big mistake that disappoint the actuarial department.
I felt extremely guilty.
"Come with me to Mr. Chuang's office." Mr. Lin stopped me with a bad mood.
Does William Chuang want to see me? My heart quivered when I remembered my aunt's words.
William sat behind his desk with a calm face. But when he looked at us, his eyes were extremely cold.
"Go ahead, what are you going to do?" William Chuang's tone was light, but I could feel his wrath.
Mr. Lin slowly said, "I have the responsibility for this matter, I'm the one who signed the final materials …"
"No, Mr. Chuang, it was my negligence in my work. I will take the consequences myself. " I interrupted Mr. Lin, gritted my teeth, and turned to William Chuang's cold eyes.
"How? How can you compensate for the waste of time, labor, and money? Do you think it's so easy?"
William Chuang roared and threw the report heavily toward his desk.
"Give me half a month and I'll go through the process again. I promise the new product will be released in September as planned!" I stuck my neck and made a military order.
Mr. Lin glared at me and tried to intercede for me, but William Chuang stopped him.
"How can you go through the process in half a month? Do you think you are Monkey King with three heads and six arms? Are you really so capable?" William Chuang yelled again.
I must have been out of my mind and blurted out, "It's not Monkey King but Nezha(another Chinese mythological character) that has three heads and six arms?"
The office fell silent. Mr. Lin's face was distorted. I didn't know whether he was laughing or angry.
As for William Chuang, I did not dare to look at him. I'm afraid his cold eyes will kill me like a knife.
It seemed to have been quiet for a century. William spoke coldly, "OK, Lizzy, I'll give you half a month, 15 working days later, I want to get all the filing documents."
I nodded vigorously.
As a result, he spoke in a cold voice, "In half a month, if you can't handle this matter, you will pack up and leave immediately."
I continue to nod hard. I think, if it weren't for Mr. Lin, he wouldn't have used such elegant words as "leave". He would have said, "You d*mn sh*t, f*ck off!"
Colleagues in the company all said that he was elegant. Only I knew what a bad man he was.
Out of William 's office, Mr. Lin looked at me sadly, "Lizzy, you are too impulsive!"
It is almost impossible to finish the process in half a month.
Lin always felt that I was doomed to pack up and leave.
"I have caused losses, I'll try my best to make up for it. Don't worry, Mr. Lin, I can handle it! " I smiled at Lin Zong, laughing heartlessly.
It doesn't matter. I just have to work overtime and stay up late. It's only half a month. No matter how hard it will be, I will make it right!
Mr. Lin looked at me for a long time and finally sighed, "Lizzy, do you know why I wanted to promote you?"
I smiled, "Of course I know because I'm beautiful."
Mr. Lin burst out laughing, "No, it's because you have the momentum and stubborn strength, much like me. "
Anyway, I determined to fix it!
I brought my toiletries and clothes, and put a folding bed in the office.
I only slept for three hours per day, my face is pale, the dark circles under my eyes made me look like a panda. However, I kept on discussing every detail of the product with related departments and repeatedly demonstrated it.
One day, after working overtime until 10: 30pm., I felt very tired. So I was going to wash up in the bathroom and went to sleep on the folding bed.
This was the first time I was going to sleep so early in more than a week.
The bathroom was empty and the crystal chandelier was still bright, which made my gaunt face clear.
After brushing my teeth, I looked in a mirror to cheer myself up, "Although my face is a little bit pale now, I'm still very beautiful! I have to admit I'm the most beautiful lady of Liam Corporation. "
Suddenly there was a laugh behind me.
"Who is that?” I turned back in horror.
William Chuang leaned against the flower stand on the back of the bathroom and looked at me mockingly.
I patted my chest and said, "I was almost scared to death. I thought it was a ghost."
"Are you still afraid of ghosts? You can frighten ghosts with that face! " William Chuang's words were as poisonous as usual.
I'd like to blame him for this. But remember that I'm the one making the decision to finish the task in 15 days, I had to keep in silence.
There was no time to waste with him, I had to wash my face and go to bed soon.
I unscrewed the facial cleanser, made bubbles, and rubbed my face hard. I just wanted to wash my face quickly.
"I've never seen such a rough woman like you." William Chuang did not leave yet. He turned around me and sniffed, "How long haven't you bathed? You smell stink. "
I don't believe it, so I lowered my head to smell, then I fought back, "What's the problem of your nose? I smell exactly as fragrant as flowers! "
He smiled, "Liam Corporation hasn't been so mean yet. We don't force employees to work so hard that they have no time to bathe. Go home now. Take a good bath and sleep well. Don't wander around like a ghost. "
Right. I'm the one who is under pressure. If I don't sleep here, how could I have more time to work for the company?
I don't want to pack up and leave in 15 days. I want to take root in Liam Corporation, highlight my qualifications and get a promotion and a raise!
"No, I'll sleep here." I'm leaving with my wash bag.
"The company is an office space, not a place for employees to sleep and take advantage of air conditions!" William Chuang snapped.
What? I'm f*cking hilarious!
Why do I stay up late to work overtime? This idiot thought I was trying to take advantage of the air conditioner!
"Mr. Chuang, you are really single-minded. How could you get such a creative conclusion?" I turned to leave.
William Chuang still called me, "Stop! Are you saying I'm an idiot?"
I was so tired that I didn't have the energy to quarrel with him. I quickened my pace and trotted back to my office.
After criticized William Chuang, I work more carefully, lest he find fault with me.
However, I didn't expect that William Chuang came to my office at 10: 30pm. When everyone was gone after work the next day.
I stood up and looked at him with great fear.
Late at night, only a man and a woman stay in a room. I'm still nervous.
Although we had already had a close relationship, I was not willing to do it again.
William Chuang gave me another disdainful sneer, he seemed to have figured out what I thought.
"Take it, go to my office to take a bath. Don't pollute the air just because you smell stink. " He threw me a key.
"Ah?" Before I could react, he had already left with his long legs.
Holding the key, I can't understand why William Chuang has become so kind.
Did he enjoy being scolded?
Maybe he is really an idiot.
William Chuang has a full suite of bathroom facilities with massage functions in his office.
I had a good shower.
Recently, I have been working too hard and aching all over. So I lay in the bathtub for half an hour.
I fell asleep and woke up in a daze. I was still too sleepy.
There is a bed in the suite outside. The bed is not big, but it looks very white and soft.
"Ok, I just sleep for a night, I'll get up at 5:00 am. No one will know." I said to myself and slept as soon as I closed my eyes.
I haven't slept so comfortably for a long time. When I woke up, I almost cried. It was already past 9:00 am.
I'm in trouble. How could I explain it? I'm running around anxiously.
At this time, my colleagues have already come to work. How will they feel when I walk out of the president's office like this?
I can't wait to slap myself!
I crept out and put my ear to the door to hear what was going on outside.
The door suddenly opened and hit my face. I jumped up in pain.
William Chuang's face darkened when he saw me behind the door. "Why are you still here?"
"Shh!" I was so frightened that I jumped over to cover his mouth and said, "Keep your voice down!"
William Chuang remove my hand and glanced at my crumpled clothes. He snorted, "I just asked you to take a bath and you were so eager to climb into my bed?"
My hands folded for mercy, "I was wrong！ I was wrong! I didn't expect to oversleep. Mr. Chuang, my boss, help me, and let me sneak out! "
I looked at William Chuang pitifully, if he could help me, I'd like to take a bow.
My expression was too sincere to be refused. This time, William Chuang did not satirize me.
"I'll call everyone to the conference room for a meeting, so you can slip away." He looked at my matted hair and said, "Comb your hair."
I nodded gratefully. I'm willing to do anything if I can get away.
Back in my office, colleagues were shocked, "Lizzy, you are late today!"
I smiled guiltily, "hey hey, yes. I slept too soundly at home last night and overslept accidentally. "
Time is short, I don't have time to entertain foolish ideas, and soon enter the working state.
At the end of the afternoon meeting, I suddenly received a phone call from assistant William Chuang, "Ms. Zoe, please come to Mr. Chuang's office."
Why does William Chuang ask for me? Do I get in trouble?
I came to his office with anxiety.
When I entered the office, William Chuang raised his chin at me and said, "Close the door."
I closed the door.
He raised his chin again, "Come here."
What's his problem? Why is he so spooky? I muttered impatiently and walked to his desk. "Mr. Chuang, what is it?"
William Chuang took something out of his trouser pocket and threw it into my face.
I grabbed a thing, and my face suddenly frozen once I looked it clearly.
I really want to kill myself instantly.
What the f*ck? It turned out to be … the underwear I changed last night!
My brain is blank, I was biting my lips, too embarrassed to say a word.
Last night I took a bath and forgot to put away my underwear. I left it in William Chuang's bathroom!
Ahhh, I d*mn want to die! Who can lend me a rope to hang myself?
Just when I was ashamed and resentful of myself, William Chuang said coldly, "Don't play this kind of trick again, Lizzy Zoe. You'd better forget all about the bar, or you'll be dismissed! "
Playing tricks? Me? My shyness vanished in an instant, and my anger rose in my heart.
I sneer at him, "Character like you, also deserve to let me play hard to get? If I hadn't been drunk that night at the bar, I would have seduced you. "
The more I said it, the angrier I became, and my eyes became wet. "William Chuang, take it easy. You are the last man I will consider even if it's the end of the world.
Then I left William Chuang's office angrily.
At that time, I never expected these words would be a joke between William Chuang and I a few years later.
Adjusting my mood, I once again put into work in my best condition.
The deadline was coming, I had to work harder and harder.
At the end of the afternoon, I got a call from Noble Liu.
"Lizzy, I'm working near your company today. Do you have time to meet? I'll treat you to dinner."
His voice was warm and pleasant with a smile.
I heaved a sigh of relief. "I should have invited you to dinner, but I'm really too busy. I owe you this meal. May I invite you to dinner after the 23rd of the month?"
Noble Liu also knew about my task to be finished in half a month. Before he called me to watch a movie, I told him.
His voice was full of care, "Focus on your work. But please pay attention to your health, eat on time and sleep on time even if you are busy. "
I nodded, "Well, don't worry, I know."
I hung on the phone and kept busy, not paying attention to this matter.
After more than an hour, I got another call from Noble Liu, "Lizzy, are you still in the company? Is it convenient for you to come down for a while? I'll wait for you at the gate of your company. "
To tell the truth, I am a little annoyed to hear him say so. Today I am in a bad mood and my work is not very smooth.
Since he has come, I can't refuse him.
Arriving at the company's downstairs, I found him carrying two takeaway boxes.
"Lizzy, aren't you fond of Matsuura crayfish? I've packed you two copies and you can take them up to share with your colleagues. " He smiled shyly, "it won't waste your time, they've already stripped of the shell. You could use chopsticks to eat. "
Looking at the sweat on his forehead, I felt very sorry.
I thought he was pestering me. Now I know that he come here especially to give me food.
Song Pu is still far from here and the transportation is not convenient. It takes more than 100 dollars by taxi to get back and forth. The crayfish is also sold at a high price.
He is a poor doctor who spends hundreds of dollars just to talk to me downstairs.
I feel guilty and moved, watching him speechless.
"Lizzy, what's wrong with you?" Noble Liu blushed.
I threw myself at him and hugged him, "Noble, it's very kind of you, thank you!"
I didn't care if anyone around me saw it. At that moment, I just wanted to hug him.
"Noble, haven't you eaten yet? There is a bench over there, shall we go there and eat together? "
Noble Liu and I were sitting in a chair eating crayfish.
The crayfish was really delicious, just like what I imagined.
The setting sun had collected the last ray of light in the sky. Twilight was closing in and the summer breeze was blowing across the lawn.
I sat side by side with the boy I had a crush on when I was young and ate crayfish together.
Such a scene makes me feel warm and melancholy.
After eating the crayfish, Noble Liu took me to the door of the building and told me not to work too late and not to stay up late.
"Well, I know. Why are you nagging like my mother? " I smiled and complained to him. Turning my head, I saw William Chuang coming out of the elevator.
He changed his sportswear and was carrying a bag in his hand. It looked as if he was going to play tennis.
He also saw me and Noble Liu, staring at Noble Liu for a while.
His eyes were hostile and uncomfortable.
Idiot. I rolled my eyes. I know he doesn't like me, but Noble Liu doesn't know him at all. Why does he stare at him so hostilely?
It's really rude!
