Chapter 335: Blocked
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Every time he heard Lin Xi mention Africa, Shi Xiao would always waver. At that time, he was in a difficult situation, and when he was on the verge of death, he received Lin Xi’s help. He definitely wouldn’t forget this kindness.
Especially when he thought about how when his wound was infected and his high fever didn’t subside, Lin Xi took care of him devotedly.
She would only be able to find a bit of food after going out for an hour or two every day, especially a type of sour fruit that was especially difficult to swallow. However, even so, Lin Xi would still give him the only edible fruit.
When she fainted later on, only then did he find out that Lin Xi hadn’t eaten anything for a few days.
At the thought of this, Shi Xiao closed his eyes and smiled gently. “I don’t like sweets, but I’m hungry now.”
He split the cake into two and ate a large piece in one bite. Then, he pushed the cake to Lin Xi. “I’m done. Thank you for being so considerate of me.”
After Lin Xi looked at the half-eaten cake, she picked up the tray gently and said, “Of course I’m considerate of you. If there’s nothing else, I’ll go out first. If you need anything, call me.”
Only when he saw her leave did Shi Xiao feel as if a heavy burden had been lifted from his shoulders. He didn’t know when it began, but he suddenly felt a bit fed up with talking to Lin Xi alone and always felt a bit uncomfortable about it, but he didn’t know why he had this type of feeling.
Meanwhile, Lin Xi, who had just left his office, carried the cake tray out with a satisfied expression. When she saw Yuan Shu just get off the elevator, she couldn’t hide the smugness in her eyes.
Zhao Cheng was just about to report to Shi Xiao when he saw Lin Xi bring out the cake and he said with a shocked expression, “President Shi ate cake? He hates Black Forest cake the most.”
His voice was rough and loud. Even though he thought he was whispering, the staff beside him heard it. All of them p.r.i.c.ked up their ears to listen to gossip about the boss.
“That’s right, he didn’t like to eat Black Forest cake in the past, but people’s tastes always change, whatever they like will also change.” Lin Xi’s voice was gentle and she even glanced in the direction Yuan Shu came from, making sure that Yuan Shu could hear her.
“But he still doesn’t like sweets that much, since he left half for me. It’s not good to waste it.”
With that, she picked up the fork that Shi Xiao had used just now and gently inserted a small piece of cake into her mouth. Then, she chewed carefully. “It’s so sweet. I like to eat sweet things, so I believe he’ll start to like it in the future as well.”
A simple-minded man like Zhao Cheng naturally didn’t know what she was hinting at. He only thought that the little girl liked sweets, especially since she had been trafficked to Africa and had suffered for so many years.
However, their colleagues were all shocked. Not only did Lin Xi enter and leave their boss’s office at will, but she even shared a piece of cake with the boss. What was the relationship between them? Now, everyone was even more certain of their previous thoughts. As expected, Lin Xi was the future lady boss.
Although Yuan Shu heard what she said, she didn’t care at all. Instead, she asked politely, “Miss Lin, is President Shi free now?”
“He didn’t eat lunch and just ate some cake, so he’s resting now.” The provocation in Lin Xi’s eyes was well hidden, but it was still seen by Yuan Shu.
Zhao Cheng scratched his head and asked in confusion, “Then why did he ask me to come up immediately? Mr. Shi just called me.”
Zhao Cheng really didn’t understand what was wrong with him. If he wanted to rest, why did he let Zhao Cheng come up? If he wasn’t resting, what was Miss Lin doing?
An awkward look flashed past Lin Xi’s face, then she said gently, “He really has something to discuss with you, and after meeting you, he is going to rest. Shi Xiao has been working so hard that he doesn’t even having time for lunch break. Miss Yuan, if you don’t have anything urgent, why don’t you come back later?”
Other than Zhao Cheng, everyone else understood what she meant, let alone Yuan Shu. She didn’t want to have any conflict with Lin Xi in the company. Moreover, she and Shi Xiao had a peaceful divorce, so there was indeed nothing to fight about.
Hence, she nodded and handed the doc.u.ment to Zhao Cheng as she said, “Give this to President Shi. I have nothing else to do, so I’ll go back first.”
Lin Xi glanced at the words on the folder, then took the doc.u.ment from Zhao Cheng’s hand. “This isn’t an important doc.u.ment. You and Shi Xiao can deal with your matters first. I’ll hand this doc.u.ment to him later.”
Zhao Cheng was at a loss and his hand was still hanging in the air.
Lin Xi said coquettishly, “Brother Zhao, Shi Xiao is too tired, so let him rest for a while after chatting. Don’t let him look at unimportant doc.u.ments, okay?”
Every time she wheedled, Zhao Cheng felt a little helpless. He could only nod stiffly and knock on Shi Xiao’s office door..
