The Second Marriage Was Spoiled By The Boss - Chapter 8
Liu Chu took Chen Xu to one side, laughing so much that his teeth could not be seen.
Could it be… Chen Xu’s heart moved. She couldn’t help looking at Zhang Qian.
Zhang Qian was listening to his Secretary, smiling kindly, but his eyes were dark, it gave out a chill that no one could get close to him.
“It’s done!” Liu Chu happily patted Chen Xu on the shoulder and lowered his voice: “Guess what? Just now, Boss Zhang told me that he was going to donate another batch of multimedia devices to us. Let me go back and count our needs and make a plan to send it to his secretary!”
The speculation in her heart had been confirmed, Chen Xu was very happy, “Great! It’s going to last a few more years.”
Now she could be sure that Zhang Qian did hear her conversation with Director Liu in the corridor.
“It’s worth it.” Director Liu turned to look at Zhang Qian and sighed, “Why do you think he brought it up on his initiative? According to the general business people’s character, they are all waiting for each other to speak, so that they can enjoy the feeling of being kneeled and licked. How can Boss Zhang be so good at understanding others?”
Chen Xu just pursed her mouth and smiled.
When she returned to the table, Chen Xu brought a full glass of wine to Zhang Qian and said, “Boss Zhang, I propose a toast to you.”
Without waiting for Zhang Qian to respond, she raised her neck and drank a glass of wine.
“Great!” The men all cheered loudly, “It’s rare to see teacher Chen so generous. Boss Zhang is so charming!”
Zhang Qian smiled and drank the wine from his glass.
Chen Xu’s face was swollen and her eyes were covered with a layer of fog. She suddenly remembered that she had forgotten to touch Zhang Qian’s cup just now, and then held the empty cup to reach Zhang Qian. “Cheers!”
Zhang Qian smiled, and this time he really laughed out loud. The laughter was very pleasant and joyful. He also raised the empty cup in his hand and gently touched Chen Xu’s cup lightly. “Cheers.”
With a sound of “Ding”, the two glasses collided gently, and Chen Xu’s fingers touched the back of Zhang Qian’s hand. The back of his hand was warm and strong, and his bones are distinct.
Chen Xu saw his eyes from the edge of the glass. Deep and smiling.
Back to her seat, Chen Xu was a little unbalanced. She could not hold her liquor. These two glasses of wine were her limit.
“Teacher Chen,” Geng Qiuyue’s eyes kept spinning on her face, with inquiry and curiosity.
“What’s the matter?” Chen Xu smiled and held her hot and swollen face with her hands. She thought that she must be very ugly now. After drinking too much wine, her face turned red and she must look silly.
“I’m a little jealous of you.”
Geng Qiuyue’s words stupefied Chen Xu, “Jealous of me?”
What did she have to be jealous of? She was just an ordinary woman who couldn’t be more ordinary.
Geng Qiuyue pouted her lips and said, “I feel that Boss Zhang was unusual to you. You toasted his two glasses of wine, and he drank them all. No one else has that kind of treatment. Not even Secretary Yan.”
“Really?” Chen Xu propped up her chin and half-narrowed her eyes. “Isn’t this because he shows concern and care as an older brother for his younger sister?”
“I almost suspect that he has a crush on you,” Geng Qiuyue said dully. “If it wasn’t for your divorce…”
Before she had finished, she realized that it was inappropriate and hurriedly swallowed the second half back.
Chen Xu understood. If it wasn’t for your divorce and a child, Zhang Qian would never have taken a fancy to you. I almost suspected that he had a crush on you.
Geng Qiuyue also realizes that Chen Xu understood what she was about to say, and she apologized, “Sister Xu, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean that.”
“It’s okay.” Chen Xu smiled faintly.
She did not take it to heart. Some people were prejudiced against divorced women, and Geng Qiuyue was one of them. She’s used to it.
The dinner was coming to an end, and Chen Xu’s phone rang.
Seeing that it was teacher Song, a neighbor from the opposite door, who called, she picked it up quickly.
Teacher Song was a retired teacher at S University. Chen Xu had a good relationship with the teacher Song’s family. They helped each other with everything.
When she was going to dinner tonight, she sent Tong Tongto teacher Song’s house and asked her to take care of him.
“Xiao Chen, have you finished your dinner party yet?” Teacher Song’s voice was a little anxious. “Tong Tong has a fever. I just gave him some antipyretic* medicine for children, but now the fever still doesn’t go down. What are we going to do?”
(*TN: Drug to reduce fever, such as sulfanilamide.)
“It’s OK. It usually takes half an hour for the antipyretics to work. Don’t worry. Observe for another half an hour.” Chen Xu said calmly, grabbed her bag, and stood up, “I’ll be right back so you don’t need to worry.”
“OK, I’m glad you can come back. The child was listless and only responded with his eyes closed and sleep. I’m so scared that I’m afraid it’s hard to tell you what’s wrong.”
Chen Xu took the bag and asked permission from the leaders to leave first.
When they heard that the child was ill, the leaders understood, “Then go home and take care of the child. Keep calm on the road and take your time.”
Chen Xu responded and apologized to Zhang Qian. “Boss Zhang, I’m sorry, the child has a fever. I have to go back early.”
“Never mind, you don’t have to be so polite.” Zhang Qian’s black eyes fixed on her, “Go back and take good care of the child.”
“En. Thank you. “
Chen Xu rushed out of the hotel in a hurry. She was lucky enough, a guest was getting off a car at the entrance. She sat up and reported her home address to the driver.
There were old love songs playing in the car, and the driver shook his head while humming along.
Chen Xu had a headache because of the noise. Coupled with the upsurge of alcohol, the whole body was a little dazed and her stomach began to feel uncomfortable.
She finally began to regret that she shouldn’t drink the last glass of wine. She shouldn’t rush to drink such a large glass of wine on impulse.
Chen Xu was sat in the back seat rubbing her temple. Suddenly, the car stopped abruptly, and there was a loud “bang” in front of her. Chen Xu threw herself on the front seat and hit her head so hard on the back of the chair that she almost fainted.
The taxi bumped the car in front of it.
The driver slapped the steering wheel angrily, spit a string of foul language from his mouth, and got out of the car swearing.
Two drivers stand on the side of the road and quarrel. The back car complains that the front car suddenly changes lanes. The front car complains that the back car doesn’t know how to avoid it. The two drivers drove around foolishly, shouting furiously.
Chen Xu got out of the car, covering her forehead. There was a big bump on her forehead, but luckily there was no bleeding.
The driver didn’t have time to take care of her. Chen Xu didn’t bother to come forward and argue with him, so she pulled out her cell phone and used an app to take a taxi.
There was no car nearby, and no one came even after adding the dispatch fee.
Chen Xu waited for more than ten minutes. The traffic police came to deal with the traffic accident, but there was still no driver to pick up her order.
What should she do now? The evening breeze of early summer blew coolly on her. Chen had a headache, a stomachache, and terrible dizziness.
While thinking about whether to walk forward to find a shared bike to ride to the nearest subway station, a white BMW stopped not far in front of her.
The window dropped and Zhang Qian’s head poked out of the window. “Teacher Chen?”
The street lamp shone on his face, and his eyes shone brightly.
Chen Xu was overjoyed and ran over quickly. “Boss Zhang!”
Seeing two cars bumped together, Zhang Qian knew what’s going on. He didn’t need to ask at all. He helped Chen Xu open the door. “Get on, I’ll give you a ride.”
The driver was driving in front, and Chen Xu and Zhang Qian were sitting in the back seat.
There was a lot of space in the car, but the two sat side by side, and the distance was still very close.
Chen Xu smelled the alcohol on Zhang Qian’s body. It was light and not unpleasant.
