Chapter 13 – Mu Xiulun (2)
“What then? What can we do about it?” She asked with a foolish expression on her face.
Fang Xie put his hands together and began to worship God, casting everything aside. “What can we do? Pray that everyone who watched the live broadcast did not notice the change in accent!”
Perhaps Fang Xie’s prayer finally “touched” the heavens because after the live broadcast on that day, Su Jishi successfully made it on the Weibo hot search list.
However, the reason why she went on the hot search was not because of “Su Jin’s accent”, nor was it because of “Su Jin as tourism ambassador”, or her new edgy, short hair cut and “Su Jin’s change of aura” but because-
《Su Jin is seriously getting fat lately! In an attempt to hide her weight gain, she even wore a suit jacket!》
In complete horror, Su Jishi stared unblinkingly at the screen. What! She was only a couple of kilos heavier than Su Jinqing! It only showed that she was healthier, can’t people appreciate that Su Jin had become healthier?!
Scanning the photos and videos taken, her whole person looked bloated and swollen…thanks to the camera! Reporters blessed the internet with the photos and made a mockery out of it!
Some even called her deformed.
The nerve! Su Jishi seriously suspected that these keyboard warriors were the reincarnation of water cannons; they spray on everything they see!
Su Jishi: “…f*ck.”
Ashan reminded her: “Good girls don’t swear.”
Su Jishi glanced at him coldly and changed her language to chinese. “Tamade!**”
**T/N: Tamade(他妈的 (tā mā de) – This is a common translation of the English equivalent of “f*ck,” “sh*t,” or “d*mn it.”
At 2 am, the president’s office of a nonferrous, rare earth company affiliated to EP Mining Group, was still brightly lit.
Mu Xiulun took off his glasses that rested on the bridge of his nose, stretched out his hand and put a comforting pressure on his forehead. A feeling of exhaustion welled up in his body instantly. But he couldn’t stop–time is short; even a short time of rest is enough for his other brothers to move their nefarious agendas against him.
Just then, someone knocked on the door of his office.
Emitting a deep sigh, Mu Xiulun said in a stern voice, “Come in.”
Without delay, his private secretary entered.
When working, the secretary seldom comes to disturb him. Mu Xiulun looked up from the computer and asked, “What is it?”
Secretary: “… Just now the madam called.”
“At two o’ clock in the morning? Call me? ” Mu Xiulun sneered and asked, “What did she ask this time?”
“Madam asked why you didn’t come home today. I told her that you were drinking with friends in the club.” The secretary replied respectfully.
In order to trick his cautious, adoptive mother, Mu Xiulun did not dare to show any signs of ambition in front of her. He could only pretend to be a wayward son who frequently indulged in debauchery and spent all his wealth on silly matters.
In this way, he gets some breathing space from her scrutinizing eyes.
However, he had made several moves recently; accomplishing several tasks in a row, which were highly praised by his father. It seemed that his adoptive mother couldn’t sit still, so she called late at night to find what he was up to.
After thinking for a moment, Mu Xiulun asked, “When was the last time I went on a date with Su Jin?”
“On the 8th of last month.”
“Well, I will ask her out in a few days. She should also fulfill her obligations as my girlfriend.”
Speaking of his girlfriend of three years, Mu Xiulun’s tone was extremely calm, without any love or affection for this supposed ‘girlfriend’. It sounded more like he was talking about a business partner
The secretary nodded, opened the work table, and in the full meeting schedule, made every effort to arrange a romantic appointment for the boss.
Balloons, violins, candlelight dinners in revolving restaurants–I believe people as gentle as Miss Su will certainly like it. The secretary nodded thoughtfully.
“By the way,” he started. Mu Xiulun paid little attention to the news of the entertainment circle. It was naturally his secretary who helped him get all the latest scoop.
“How is my girlfriend recently?”
“Your girlfriend, she…” The secretary recalled the news she saw on the gossip website when she was just fishing and monotonously answered, “… she has gained weight recently.”
T/N: Oh hooooooooo…what do you think of this new character?
