Chapter 100 – To Give Birth To A Child (1)
Su Qiuzi asked Lin Qing for the driving schools’ WeChat and signed up for the latest driving test while she was in their school saloon. She was a top student and, after studying for her written exams for several days, she passed without any issues. However, her practical performance was too weak, it was so bad that the coach who had accompanied her to practice for the second test gave up. No matter how professional the coach was, they couldn’t help her.
Su Qiuzi looked at the coach with an apologetic look. “I’m sorry, coach, I didn’t see the wall here.”
The coach showed no mercy. “What grudge do you have with walls? You hit one even though it was right in front of you.”
Su Qiuzi: “…”
When Guan Lin passed by the driving school’s driving yard, he saw Su Qiuzi getting out of the driver’s seat with a bitter expression on her face. The coach next to her gave out an instruction and called the next student. Su Qiuzi was going to wait in the rest area, and Guan Lin called out to her.
Su Qiuzi was distracted, still thinking about how to drive the car properly, and subconsciously raised her head after hearing her name. When she looked up, she saw her Boss standing next to the driving yard.
Arguably, she couldn’t see people’s faces clearly at such a long distance, but her Boss’s appearance was too unique. With his long hair tied behind his head and a tall and straight body, she easily recognized him. Plus, that decadent and lazy temperament of his couldn’t be replicated by anyone.
Su Qiuzi ran over, smiled and called out to him. “Boss!” Guan Lin responded calmly and handed over the candied haws that he had bought for a friend. Guan Lin often invited his friends to the pottery house for some snacks. When she saw the candied haws, Su Qiuzi took them over with a smile.
“How was the driving lesson?” Guan Lin asked as he watched her bite on the hawthorn. Even though it was coated with sugar, her little nose wrinkled because of the sourness.
Su Qiuzi looked down and said, “Not good, driving is too difficult.”
Guan Lin looked at her miserable appearance and said, “Just ask your husband to drive.”
Su Qiuzi bit the hawthorn and answered, “My husband can drive.”
Guan Lin glanced at her, “Electric car?”
Su Qiuzi asked inexplicably, “Huh?”
Guan Lin knew what she meant by the word “huh”. If he asked any more questions, he would expose her lies. So, he changed the subject and said, “You haven’t been to the pottery house recently.”
“I didn’t have any time recently.” One reason was that she was busy at the TV station. Su Qiuzi didn’t think that the second test would be so difficult. “I have to practice hard. If I fail the exam, the money will be for nothing.”
“How much is your driver’s license registration?” Guan Lin asked.
“Four thousand.” Su Qiuzi finished gnawing on the candied haws, then asked, “Boss, why are you here?”
“My friend runs this driving school.” Guan Lin said casually.
Guan Lin was a second generation rich, like most of the people in his circle. They had nothing to do all day apart from playing games and avoided inheriting the family business. Later, he opened a pottery house in the university town. His friends followed his example of investing in the university town. Tea shops, restaurants, clothing stores, Internet cafes, even driving schools around the university town were all opened by his friends.
After listening to this, Su Qiuzi’s eyes lit up and then went silent. Swallowing, she said, “I wish you could ask your friend to give me a discount.” As she bit the candied haws, her cheeks swelled like a hamster due to the nuts hidden in them.
Guan Lin was half a head taller than her, so when he gave her a commanding look, he had to look down. Then, he asked, “What do you mean?”
Su Qiuzi felt that she was too obsessed with money. Her Boss invited her to eat candied haws, but she also wanted her Boss to find his friend to give her a discount. He was a rich second generation, but she was not in a poverty relief office. Su Qiuzi smiled and said, “It’s nothing, just…”
Guan Lin interrupted her, staring at her as he said, “I can ask him to give you a discount now.”
Su Qiuzi: “…”
Guan Lin did as he said and his friend gave Su Qiuzi a 20% discount. She thought that the money had already been paid, so it was difficult to get a discount. However, after the driving school boss gave her the discount, she returned the overcharged 800 yuan.
This was the first time she has received money back, so Su Qiuzi felt happy and excited. When she finished her driving lesson in the evening and saw Guan Lin playing games in the driving school boss’s office, she ran over and asked, “Boss, have you eaten dinner? My treat!”
When Su Qiuzi was in the Pottery House before, Guan Lin treated her very well. Today, his relationship saved her 800 yuan. This favor couldn’t be owed.
Seeing her approaching, Guan Lin glanced at her and put out the cigarette he held between his slender fingers. After a while, he smiled and said, “Okay.”
