The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 6
The dinner was arranged in Cuihu hotel.
As soon as she walked in, Chen Xu was shocked by the decoration of the hall. The Roman style four pillars stood nearly five meters high. The wall facing the gate was a whole postmodernist painting, with wild lines and fantastic colors full of visual impact.
The pattern on the carpet was three-dimensional, light blue milky white and light gold tricolor elegant and warm. They are valuable at first sight.
The private room was on the second floor. There were two tables set up. Director Liu Chu and several middle-level cadres have arrived. They are sitting at the table while bragging and chatting. When Chen Xu comes in, Liu Chu stands up and takes Chen Xu to the card room inside the private room.
“What’s the matter, Director Liu?” Chen Xu felt it was strange to see him sneak around.
“Xiao Chen, as you know, our old library was still short of a video room. After a while, I’ll find an opportunity to get close to Mr. Huateng’s boss and see if I can ask him to donate more to us. You should be smart; say some good words indirectly to him and play coquettishly. Let’s cooperate well and try to get the video room done.”
Liu’s eyes were burning, and he entrusted Chen Xu with an important task.
Chen Xu: “…”
Liu’s words made her very uncomfortable. In the final analysis, isn’t it a disguised sexual bribe to let her act coquettish with a financier?
There are always men in the world who look down on women’s ability to work and are only extraordinarily interested in women’s sexual attractiveness. That’s disgusting.
Chen Xu’s seat was at the main guest table, which is the same as Huateng’s leader. Next to her was a female teacher from the Science and Technology Department. Her name is Geng Qiuyue.
Geng Qiuyue was born small and exquisite, with a pair of big eyes and a sweet melon seed face, which looked very pleasing.
Chen Xu had heard from her colleagues before saying that Geng Qiuyue was only 23 years old this year and just graduated from N University last year. An undergraduate can enter the Science and Technology Department of S University— The background and backers are obviously powerful.
“I’m so nervous. I’m going to meet the legendary tech boss soon.” Geng Qiuyue stretched her neck to look at the door of the private room and spoke in a low voice to Chen Xuan, “A handsome guy. I heard that he’s not married yet. He doesn’t even have a girlfriend.”
“Then there may be a boyfriend.” Chen Xu said casually.
Geng Qiuyue smiled so that her eyes narrowed into two crescent moon, “It makes sense! Handsome guys usually like kids.”
This joke seems to shorten the distance between the two people. Geng Qiuyue’s attitude towards Chen Xu became more affectionate and began to praise Chen Xu.
“Teacher Chen, you look so beautiful today.” Geng Qiuyue looked at Chen Xu’s silk shirt and her white skirt. “I didn’t expect lake green to look so good with white. It’s good to have white skin. You can look good in any color.”
Chen Xu just was about to give her a compliment when there was a little commotion in the private room, and everyone stretched out their necks and looked at the door.
“Here it is! Here comes the big man!” Geng Qiuyue stood up excitedly.
Chen Xu also stood up with everyone to welcome the outstanding alumni and financiers of S University.
The voice was getting closer and closer. A group of men and women filed in, led by Headmaster Wang and a young man.
Black shirt, black trousers, two long legs are pleasing to the eye. The seemingly low-key clothes gave birth to the feeling that he looked like a model on a T stage.
His skin was white and almost flawless. The five features*, pretty and handsome. Walking in the crowd can only be described as a crane in a flock of chicken**. It’s like a star traveling with a bunch of assistants.
(*TN: Five sense organs — nose, eyes, lips, tongue, ears.)
(**TN: 独鹤 means ‘a single crane’; 鸡群 means ‘a flock of chickens’. This idiom is a metaphor of a person’s ability that surpasses the crowd.)
Chen Xu was stunned. It’s really Zhang Qian!
Zhang Qian’s eyes swept the private room. When he came to her face, he seemed to stay for a second.
Huh? Did Zhang Qian recognize her? A thought flashed through Chen Xu’s mind, and then she felt too stupid.
When Zhang Qian was a senior, she was a junior. It was natural for her to know Zhang Qian, but how could Zhang Qian know her?
The waiting teachers began to applaud, and Chen Xu applauded with everyone.
Headmaster Wang warmly beckoned Zhang Qian to sneak into his seat, and Chen Xu sat opposite him. There was a big round table between the two.
The dishes were served one after another, and a big round table was full. Chen Xu has been hungry for a long time. It seems that the leaders are busy talking and joking with Zhang Qian, so she held her chopsticks and bend her heads to eat attentively.
“Sister Chen Xu, you are so calm.” Geng Qiuyue lowered her voice and said to Chen Xu, “I can’t eat anything now. My heart is pounding.”
“When I think that the big guy is still single and I don’t have a boyfriend, the devil in my heart begins to stir.”
“Ha ha…” Chen Xu is amused by Geng Qiuyue. This girl is so cute.
“In a moment, when you go over to toast, you must talk to him a little more.” Chen Xu smiled and encouraged her, “Think of a way to get the phone number or something. To benefit from an influential person, we must make good use of such a good opportunity.”
“Well, I don’t know what the big shot likes.” Geng Qiuyue sighed a little worriedly. “He is too tall. I think my height has just reached his shoulder. Will he dislike it?”
“Height is not a problem. Be confident. You are so beautiful and lovely. Who can resist your charm?” Chen Xu is not stingy about her praise.
“Good. In a moment, it’s our turn when the leaders finish the toast. I’ll discharge it well and see if I can corner him.” Geng Qiuyue smiles at Chen Xu.
“Jiā yóu*!” Chen Xu cheers for Geng Qiuyue. When she looks up, she sees Director Liu Chu winking at her.
(*TN: To cheer somebody on / “you can do it!”.)
Chen Xu knows what she means. She couldn’t help sighing; act coquettish with the financier and find a way to add a few more video rooms to the library. She really can’t do the job.
Chen Xu couldn’t help but look at Zhang Qian. Unexpectedly, Zhang Qian was also looking at her side, and their sight happened to meet in mid-air.
The second when the eyes met in the air, Chen Xu’s heart trembled inexplicably quivering.
The man’s eyes are too dark, too bright. The feeling that he could see through people quietly made her a little uncomfortable.
Fortunately, it was only for a moment. Zhang Qian looked away as soon as they made eye contact.
Headmaster Wang, who is good at flattering, thought Zhang Qian was looking at Geng Qiuyue, and immediately waved to her and Chen Xu, “Come here, Xiao Geng and Xiao Chen. You two female teachers also came to give Mr. Zhang a toast and thank Mr. Zhang for his support to his alma mater.”
Geng Qiuyue secretly squeezed Chen Xu’s hand under the table.
Chen Xu understood what she meant and said with a low smile, “Jiā yóu!”
Two people carry the wine cup toward Zhang Qian. In the distance, Chen Xu is closer to Zhang Qian, but Chen Xu deliberately dillydallies, let Geng Qiuyue come to her front and let her shine on the stage.
Geng Qiuyue stood in front of Zhang Qian lightheartedly. Her eyes were full of emotion, and a bright and playful smile. Chen Xu watched and felt that Geng Qiuyue and Zhang Qian are quite well matched.
One is tall and slender, the other is small and exquisite; one is calm in temperament, the other is lively and smart; handsome men and beauties are very pleasing to the eye.
“Mr. Zhang, I’d like to offer you a toast. Thank you for your support to our school and I wish you all the best.” Geng Qiuyue’s voice is sweet. He takes the initiative to drink a glass of wine and show the bottom of the cup to everyone.
“Xiao Geng is wonderful! How sincere!” The men were cheering around.
Chen Xu peeks at Zhang Qian’s glass, still half of it. Will he give Xiao Geng face and finish the small half of the drink?
Chen Xu was suddenly a little curious.
“Thank you. It’s my honor to help my alma mater.” Zhang Qian said polite words to Xiao Geng with a warm smile, and only took a sip of the wine.
He really didn’t give face to beautiful women, ah. Chen Xu was a little disappointed. After thinking about it, she also understands that with Zhang Qian’s identity, he has met so many beauties that he is used to being calm for a long time.
“Boss Zhang, I heard that you are still single …” Xiao Geng looked at Zhang Qian with a smile. “coincidentally, I’m single, too.”
“Haha …” The crowd burst into laughter. Chen Xu also laughed. Xiao Geng is so cute. Brave and lovely.
Because of her words, some dreary atmosphere in the private room suddenly relaxed.
Headmaster Wang narrowed his eyes with laughter. “Xiao Geng is good! The school needs young people like you who dare to do something.”
“Xiao Geng, hurry to ask Boss Zhang for his Wechat. After this gathering, there will be no such opportunity.” The people at the other table also shouted and encouraged.
Everyone cheered Xiao Geng up, and the atmosphere was very warm and happy.
Xiao Geng was not afraid either. She took out her cell phone, transfer out the WeChat QR code and deliver it to Zhang Qian. Her head is playfully askew. “Is that all right, Boss Zhang?”
