The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 15
Edited by Dawn
Chen Xu’s smile froze on her face.
Underwear? The underwear that Aunt Yinan gave her? That super sexy translucent lace underwear?
Zhang Qian helped her hang it? That underwear was hanging out on the balcony! Why did Zhang Qian help her hang it?
Could it be…?
That’s impossible, right? After these few close meetings, she felt that Zhang Qian was still a decent guy. He didn’t seem like the kind of creepy guy who had a fetish for women’s underwear.
Chen Xu was embarrassed and confused. She didn’t know whether to change the subject quickly or wait for Zhang Qian’s explanation.
Zhang Qian’s face flushed.
He’d never been so embarrassed in his life. When he ran in a school sports meet in elementary school and was watched by thousands of people when he dropped his pants near the finish line, he was not so embarrassed.
“Chen Xu, listen to me, that’s not what happened …..” Zhang Qian explained in a hurry. His words were not very clear. “I went to the balcony to get toys for Tong Tong. When I stood up, I accidentally dropped your clothes. I picked them up and hung them up again.”
He’s innocent. He’s not a pervert. He’s a good and decent man!
“Well …. It’s OK. It’s OK.” What else could Chen Xu say? She just wanted to disappear.
From the air that was so awkward that it was about to freeze, came Tong Tong’s cheerful sound.
“Uncle, my mother has a lot of underwear! Besides the white ones, there are blue ones, pink ones and black ones. I don’t like the black ones most. The underwear…”
Little brat snapped his fingers and introduced Chen Xu’s underwear to Zhang Qian, ready to share his experience with the various underwear.
Chen Xu exploded and roared, “Tong Tong!”
Whose kid was this? Get him out of here! She doesn’t want to see this little brat!
The corner of Zhang Qian’s mouth twitched. Although embarrassed, he suddenly wanted to laugh…..
Tong Tong was a professional cheater who didn’t hesitate to cheat people, even his own mother was not spared. He was really an upright child who treated people equally.
Zhang Qian immediately decided that the ice cream agreement was still valid.
“Mommy is so fierce!” Tong Tong pouted aggrievedly. He knew that Chen Xu was offended by the introduction of her underwear, so he bowed his head and ate quietly, not daring to comment again.
The three of them then ate in silence, the atmosphere surrounding them a bit strange. Zhang Qian deliberately looked for a topic and asked Chen Xu, “Are you still busy working at the library? Are there many things to do?”
“Not busy. I’m from the loan office. Now I’m in an intelligent office. I’m not sure that my position will be cut off one day.” Chen Xu gave a wry smile. “At that time, I had no other choice but to move to other departments.”
“Then what do you think? Have you considered changing jobs earlier or different jobs or anything like that?”
“It’s not easy to transfer jobs. In school, each person has their own position and there is nobody to spare. You can’t move if people don’t leave. Unless you have a strong background, that is. I have thought about changing jobs before, but my major has been abandoned these years. I don’t know if I can find a job if I go out.”
Zhang Qian suddenly remembered something. “By the way, our company’s e-commerce department was opening up towards the southern European market and seems to be in great need of Spanish language talents. Do you want to go and try it?”
“Are you talking about Zhang Yu online shop?” Chen Xu asked.
Zhang Yu online shop was a subsidiary of Huateng. It has been online for more than three years. It specializes in imported goods. It was famous for its special and authentic products also has a good reputation in the market. Many of Tong Tong’s clothes and toys were purchased in Zhang Yu online shop.
“Yes. This team is quite strong in execution and is developing very fast.” Zhang Qian suggested. “They’re in a period of expansion, they’re in dire need of talent, and the benefits offered are good. You can find out more about it if you’re interested.”
Chen Xu nodded. “Well, I’ll pay attention to that later.”
Zhang Qian knew she wasn’t interested when he heard her say that. It’s hard to say anything more.
Chen Xu had her own worries. Tong Tong was still young. After going to a private enterprise, she can’t leave work at 4 o’clock. Also, the e-commerce industry was famous for working overtime, so it’s impossible to expect her to take care of her children.
What’s more, although the salary of the school was low, the welfare was very good. Children can go to the affiliated school of S University in kindergarten, primary school, and middle school all the way. The affiliated school of S University, how many children couldn’t get into it.
She was not the kind of person who was very materialistic, and her consumption was very simple. When Tong Tong grows up in the future, she will spare her energy to pick up her major and do some private work in her spare time. Life would not be too difficult by then.
The two were talking when Chen Xu’s cell phone rang on the dinner table.
“You guys eat, I’ll answer the phone first.”
Chen Xu walked to the living room window with her cell phone to answer the call. The call was from a college classmate, a sister from the same dorm back then, quite a close friend.
Zhang Qian heard Chen Xu say, “Ah! That’s great. Congratulations. Happy wedding! … Okay, I’ll be there … Regent Hotel on the 26th, right? … Okay, okay, I will be there on time. … All right, I’ll see you on the 26th.”
Chen Xu still had a smile on her face when she hung up the phone and walked over to the table.
Zhang Qian smiled and asked, “A red bomb*?”
(*TN: Red bomb is commonly known as a wedding invitation. They’re called the “red bomb” because the invitation card is red and the receipt of the invitation card is usually expensive.)
“Well, my classmate is getting married and invited me to the wedding. She was a staunch non-marriage advocate at first,” Chen Xu exclaimed with a smile. “Gee! I’m so curious. I wonder who was so charismatic that she could willingly enter into the walled city.”
Zhang Qian responded, “Did the couple have their wedding at the Regent Hotel? My friend is a shareholder in Regent, would you like to give your classmate a discount?”
“Yeah! Of course, it’s good to get a discount,” Chen Xu was very happy. “Can you say hello to your friend? I’ll send you my classmate’s info later.”
Zhang Qian was ready to hand her the phone. “Okay, you can add my WeChat.”
“Okay. Thank you, Brother.” Chen Xu thanked Zhang Qian, unaware that she had fallen into someone else’s trap.
“You’re welcome. It’s a piece of cake.” Zhang Qian has an upright face and a very honest smile.
He didn’t know who the shareholders of the Regent Hotel were, nor did he know them, but that didn’t stop Chen Xu’s classmates from having a discount on their weddings. He will pay for the discount and ask the secretary to make a phone call. It’s very simple.
Look how natural this Wechat was. It’s a piece of cake.
At the same time, in a high-end house on the other side of the city, a man and a woman were talking about the wedding at their dining room table.
Ye Zhiqing said, “Zhenyu, my cousin got married on the 26th in the Regent Hotel. I just called to inform you that we are all right on the 26th, right?”
Lu Zhenyu was looking down at his cell phone, absent-mindedly. “En, it seems to be all right. Are we going to this wedding?”
Ye Zhiqing snatched the phone from his hand and coquettishly said, “Of course I’m going. Can you stop looking at your cell phone? All-day long you just look at your phone, what’s there to look at with your phone? Is it as good as me?”
Lu Zhenyu was a little unhappy. “Zhiqing, don’t fool around. I’m looking at the documents issued by the ministry. Give me back my phone.”
Ye Zhiqing’s face sank. “Who’s messing around? She’s telling you something serious! My cousin is getting married on the 26th at the Regent Hotel, are you going or not!”
“I’m going. Didn’t I promise you just now?” Lu Zhenyu reached out and said, “Give me the phone.”
Ye Zhiqing pouted. “Zhenyu, you are getting colder to me. Since my uncle was investigated, you haven’t been as kind to me as you used to be. When people talk to you, you are always absent-minded.”
Lu Zhenyu’s face changed. “What are you talking about? What does the investigation of your uncle have to do with my attitude towards you? I’ve been in a lot of trouble lately, so don’t be ridiculous, okay?”
“Look, people didn’t say anything and you lost your temper.” Ye Zhiqing walked over and hugged Lu Zhenyu from behind, her face pressed against his neck and got intimate with him. “Zhenyu, I know you are still angry with me about the last sports meeting, but I really thought I was pregnant, it’s not like I lied to you on purpose to stop you from going to the sports meeting. Don’t be angry.”
“Forget it. Don’t talk about it.” Lu Zhenyu became more and more upset as he heard this. “I’m going to the study. There’s a piece of material to sort out and it has to be submitted tomorrow.”
“Hey… ” Ye Zhiqing still wanted to say something, but Lu Zhenyu had already gotten up and left.
Looking at Lu Zhenyu’s big and slender back, Ye Zhiqing bit her lips in hatred, her eyes slowly reddening.
