Xu Weilai pushed open the door of the toilet cubicle and walked out.
When the two female colleagues saw her, their eyes widened in shock as they looked at each other.
Xu Weilai walked over to the sink, turned on the tap, and washed her hands nonchalantly. Then, she took a piece of tissue and wiped her hands dry. Then, when she was about to walk out, she turned her head towards them and said, “It really isn’t that kind of relationship. The authorities refuted the rumors.”
Female colleague 1: …
Female colleague 2: …
Xu Weilai thought for a moment and said, “Do help me spread the words. Else I would seek revenge on you.”
She even deliberately put on a fierce look as she said that.
Both of them shivered at her word and kept nodding to show that they would do as they were told, “Got it. We’ll do it for sure.”
Xu Weilai walked out of the bathroom and returned to her desk. She picked up a stack of documents and knocked on the Vice President’s office door.
“Please come in.”
Xu Weilai walked in and stood in front of his desk. She first placed the stack of documents on the table and pointed out the ones that required his signatures. As Zuo An lowered his head to sign off the documents, she reconsidered and reconstructed her phrases.
After Zuo An signed them, he closed the documents and handed them back to her, but Xu Weilai did not take them from his hand.
He took a glance at her, brows raised slightly as he asked, “Is there anything else?”
Xu Weilai voiced out tactfully as she wasn’t sure whether Zuo An has heard of the rumors, “Big Boss, have you… heard anything outrageous in the past few days? Anything that was obviously fake.”
Zuo An’s lips curled up. He put down the pen in his hand and leaned back into his chair. Instead of answering, he asked, “Such as?”
Xu Weilai gulped. “Such as…something about you, about me, about some tall tales about you and me…”
After being a reporter for a long time, professional terms subconsciously popped up in her mind and out of her mouth.
Zuo An chuckled and said bluntly, “You mean, the rumors going around the company about our ambiguous relationship, and even said that we are together. Are you referring to this?”
Sure enough… if it could reach her, it could certainly reach her Big Boss as well. After all, he had eyes and ears everywhere.
“I’m sorry, Big Boss. You took care of me a few days ago and it turned into wild gossips which were damaging to your image. However, since nothing was going on between us, no one would talk about it anymore as long as we make our clarification to the public.”
Zuo An was silent for a moment. He shook his head.
Surprised at his reaction, Xu Weilai asked, “What do you mean?”
He stood up, walked around the desk towards Xu Weilai. He lowered his eyes and gazed down at her face, “I do not want to clarify.”
Confusion clouded Xu Weilai’s head. After all, this kind of rumor would not do him any good.
“Because…” Zuo An lowered his voice, his eyes filled with emotions, “For me, it was neither a false report nor was it a tall tale.”
So, it meant that he had feelings for her… the feeling between a man and a woman?
Xu Weilai stood rooted to the ground and stared blankly at Zuo An for a while. Then, she turned around out of a sudden and rushed out of the office.
Xu Weilai couldn’t stand being around her Big Boss for the time being. She grabbed her phone and walked towards the elevator as she was prepared to go to the coffee shop downstairs. Perhaps having a piece of cake would calm her down.
Unexpectedly, Gu Yu stepped into the same elevator she was in.
Well, it was certainly inevitable that they would meet since they were both working in the same company. Xu Weilai could only look elsewhere and pretended that he was invisible.
The elevator door closed, and the elevator descended.
Xu Weilai and Gu Yu each stood in a corner of their own. Neither of them said anything. Silence enveloped the elevator.
Just when the elevator was about to reach the first floor, his voice came to her ears.
