HH – Chapter 4

Chapter 4

Miss Zhuang is Exception to Mr. Si

 

 

An eye-catching silver-grey Maybach is parked in front of the hotel’s entrance.  Si Zheng Ting opens the door and sits on the back seat.  Just as he was about to close the door, Zhuang Nai Nai steps forward, “We are heading the same direction, give me a lift!”

 

“Inconvenient.” He heartlessly rejects her without even batting an eyelash.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai’s heart jumps a little, before opening the door anyway to invite herself in.  Her wrist is suddenly clamped by a large palm.  She withdraws a few steps from the force and ‘bang’, the door is slammed shut before the car is driven off.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai stomps angrily.  She tilts her head towards the bodyguards’ car behind.  Without as much as a second thought, she jumps inside it.  Some of the bodyguards want to kick her off, but the assistant gives them a meaningful glance.

 

One of the bodyguards cannot bring himself to understand this, “Our boss hates women who chases after him.  Why can’t we usher her away?”

 

A meaningful smile appears on the assistant’s face, “Miss Zhuang is an exception for Mister Si.”

 

The bodyguard is confused; the one chasing after Mister Si is Miss Gu, why is the assistant addressing her as Miss Zhuang?

 

——–

 

The car stops in front of Di Hao Group’s headquarter.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai runs out of the car to keep up with Si Zheng Ting’s imposing strides.  She half runs beside him, occasionally stealing a glance at his handsome icy face.  Seeing his cold expression, her heart is tied in a knot.  She does not dare to speak.

 

Seeing him about to enter a conference room, she finally cannot stop herself from speaking, “T-this… can you give me a moment?  I need to talk to you.”

 

Si Zheng Ting continues walking without even turning his head.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai has no other way, she jumps in front of him to block him from walking, “Wei, when will you marry m—–“

 

Before she even finish speaking, she realizes that Si Zheng Ting is walking without showing signs of stopping.  Knowing they will bump into each other soon, she steps aside and can only watch as Si Zheng Ting walks straight into the conference room.

 

That man… seriously!

 

Zhuang Nai Nai grits her teeth as she glances at the staffs around.  They are all looking away, pretending they haven’t seen a single thing.  This is too…. embarrassing.

 

When enthusiasm is repaid with coldness…..

 

Zhuang Nai Nai takes a deep breath to calm herself before a warm smile appears on her face once more.  Just like that, she stands outside the conference room, checking whatever happening outside through the glass door.

 

The atmosphere is solemn during the meeting.  The directors and senior officials all sits attentively, clearly respectful towards Si Zheng Ting.

 

He sits on the main seat, like those ancient emperors.

 

Zhuang Nai Nai stares at him from the other side of the door, her lips pursed up.

 

She feels like she really does not know her own place; the difference between them is like heaven and earth.  That man is noble; he comes from a completely different world.

 

As she sighs, she catches sight of him unconsciously touching his stomach twice as he speaks.

 

She looks at him thoughtfully.

 

Not long later, a secretary makes her way towards the conference room while carrying cups of coffee.

 

Seeing her, Zhuang Nai Nai approaches the secretary and says something that makes her froze and shakes her head.  But then, the secretary sees the assistant secretly nodding at her.

 

————

 

As the secretary send coffees to the conference room later, she place each of them in front of each person in the meeting.  Then, she tremblingly makes her way to Si Zheng Ting’s direction, her heart jumping as she puts down the coffee that is specifically made for him.

 

Si Zheng Ting picks up the cup and upon one look on the pale milk inside, his face darkens.

 

A gust of cold air suddenly fills the conference room.

 

The secretary is scared until her feet turns soft, her entire body trembling.  She secretly laments in her heart: Assistant sir, you harmed me!

  1. Thank you for the chapter!!!

  2. Poor secretary… she got the short straw. ZNN even cares for the well-being of his stomach. What’s up with the assistant, and why is ZNN such an exception? Is it the pre-childhood engagement?
