Chapter 336: Invitation
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
After Lin Xi saw Zhao Cheng enter the office, she threw the cake into the trash can when no one was paying attention. In order to maintain her current figure, she rarely ate sweets. It would ruin her skin and figure. Previously, she didn’t eat a single bite of Black Forest, but she just wanted to anger Yuan Shu.
Even though Yuan Shu didn’t seem to care much on the surface, Lin Xi was certain that she was furious deep down. This marriage was obtained through dirty tricks and was what Yuan Shu dreamed of. How could Yuan Shu be willing to get a divorce just like that?
Lin Xi looked at the doc.u.ment in her hand. It happened to be the proposal for the new video website. The corners of her lips curled up as she returned to her desk with the proposal.
After finally sorting out the details of the handover, Yuan Shu began to plan how to leave the Shi Corporation.
It seemed that the characters in the original book had all appeared one by one. Even if the plot changed a little, what would come would still come, so she had to plan ahead. At the very least, she didn’t want to die like the original host.
Yuan Shu suddenly felt a sense of powerlessness. After she had been pulled into this world, it was as if everything had changed because of her appearance, but it was as if nothing had changed. At the very least, most things would still progress according to the book’s plot, such as Lin Xi’s appearance and her divorce from Shi Xiao.
In order to prevent Lin Xi from tampering with her work, Yuan Shu checked the work in her hands many times, especially the technical work that involved the company’s secrets. Only after confirming that it had never pa.s.sed through Lin Xi’s hands did she relax.
After packing up, Yuan Shu was about to leave the office when she saw Shi Xiao and Lin Xi walking out one after another.
“Shi Xiao, where are you bringing me out to eat today? Why are you being so mysterious?” Lin Xi asked with a look of longing.
Although her voice wasn’t loud, her words were clear. Not only Yuan Shu, but even her colleagues around her heard her.
The colleagues exchanged glances. If she wasn’t the future lady boss, how could she get so close to President Shi?
However, Shi Xiao’s eyes were fixed on Yuan Shu. Seeing that she didn’t seem to mind at all, he was very unhappy. Then, he said coldly, “Since it’s a surprise, you’ll know when you get there.”
He quickly walked up to Yuan Shu and said in a stiff tone, “You don’t have any plans for tonight, right? Let’s go eat together. Haven’t you never been to Sky Restaurant before? I booked a private room.”
From his tone, he wasn’t questioning her at all. It was as if he was giving an order instead. Moreover, his eyes were narrowed in a menacing manner, as if he would pounce on Yuan Shu if she said no.
Yuan Shu was startled by his gaze. If not for her previous experience on the battlefield, she would have taken a step back in fright.
She didn’t understand why Shi Xiao was suddenly filled with such aggression, but she didn’t say anything and just looked at him calmly. Shi Xiao didn’t back down either. His eyes were fixed on her and he was waiting for her to agree.
Seeing the awkward atmosphere between the two of them, Lin Xi took a step forward before tugging at Shi Xiao’s sleeve lightly. Shi Xiao frowned and pulled away from her.
Lin Xi’s expression was a bit awkward and her hand was still extended, but she immediately said to Yuan Shu with a smile, “Miss Yuan, why don’t we go together? It just happens to be dinner time. Moreover, it’s only the two of us eating, so if you come, it’ll be more lively with more people.” She turned to Shi Xiao and asked, “Right?”
Shi Xiao frowned the entire time, but his gaze remained on Yuan Shu’s face. This woman had just divorced him, but she wanted to draw the line so quickly?
How could Yuan Shu, who was familiar with the struggles between women in the palace, not understand the meaning behind Lin Xi’s words? This was their exclusive dinner date, so she really shouldn’t join. Moreover, according to the storyline in the book, if she got involved, she might die miserably.
Yuan Shu shook her head and said calmly, “President Shi asked me to hand over my work to Miss Lin. I indeed have some doc.u.ments to sort out and I still have work to deal with later.”
“Heh, with the work you have, what’s there to hand over?” Shi Xiao was a little dissatisfied. Of course, he knew about Yuan Shu’s work in the company and knew that she was just looking for an excuse.
At this moment, a man in a checkered shirt and black-framed gla.s.ses called out softly with an uneasy expression, “Miss Yuan, there’s a doc.u.ment here that needs your attention.”
Finally finding an excuse to leave, Yuan Shu heaved a sigh of relief and said sincerely to Shi Xiao, “I do have work. President Shi, Miss Lin, please excuse me.”
As Shi Xiao narrowed his eyes and looked in the direction she left in, his unhappiness intensified.
Lin Xi’s lips instead curled up slightly, but a look of pity appeared on her face. “It really is a pity that Miss Yuan can’t go. The more people, the merrier..”
