Chapter 440: Chapter 441 Mo Yizhi Got Angry
Chapter 441 Mo Yizhi Got Angry
“Brother Wei didn’t tell you? I ran into Zhang Mingjie downstairs…”
Before I could even finish speaking, Ziyuan interrupted me and said: “He did, but when I went downstairs to look for you, I didn’t see you; I only saw Zhang Mingjie!”
What happened to Ziyuan? She was clearly overreacting. I couldn’t help but chuckle, “Xiao Zi, what’s the matter? Is there anything urgent?”
I asked naturally, but Ziyuan fell into a daze unnaturally. A trace of panic flashed in her beautiful eyes, and as if she realized that she was overreacting, she hurriedly explained: “No… Can’t I find you if I have nothing urgent?”
After speaking, she suddenly realized that this explanation would only worsen everyone’s suspicion about our relationship. Her face instantly blushed.
“Oh, so you were looking for me because… you miss me?” When I was a child, I especially liked to tease Ziyuan. Seeing her blushing, I couldn’t help but want to tease her. “I only came to the office 20 minutes later than Brother Wei, but you actually miss me so much? If I suddenly skip work on a whim, wouldn’t you be losing your mind?”
“You… Stop it. If Liusu heard it, she would misunderstand us.” Ziyuan became even more flustered. She reached out her hands, wanting to cover my mouth. But this time, she reacted much more quickly.
She knew that if she had really covered my mouth with her hands, no one would believe that our relationship was pure no matter how she explained it.
As if having an electric shock, she hurriedly took her hands back. To cover her embarrassment, she pretended to tuck her hair behind her ear. But when she saw that I was trying very hard to hold back my laughter, she finally couldn’t pretend it anymore; she lifted her leg and kicked my shin in a huff. This kind of behavior was really like Chu Yuan.
My relationship with Ziyuan was really strange. Ever since we had sex, I had always been feeling guilty and ashamed; I often felt embarrassed to see her. But when she stood in front of me, I completely forgot about those feelings. Not only did I not feel any estrangement between us, but there was also a strange natural affinity.
However, after joking around, the guilty look on Ziyuan’s face made me feel uncomfortable again.
“She will not misunderstand…” Facts are facts. If Liusu really wanted to think we had an improper relationship, could it even be called a “misunderstanding”? Seeing Ziyuan open her mouth, seemingly wanting to ask me why, I interrupted in advance and said, “After I separated from Zhang Mingjie, I went to see the chairman. Speaking of which… Where is Liusu? Why didn’t I see her?”
“You went to see the chairman? Why?”
I was really puzzled by her surprise. Wasn’t Mo Yizhi standing behind her? Did she not see him?
Long Shan suddenly interjected: “He and the chairman had a discussion about his work arrangement. But it’s inconvenient to disclose the content of the conversation to Miss Xue.” Long Shan’s position in the company was obviously higher than that of Ziyuan, but when she said those words to Ziyuan, she said in a tone as if she was talking to her superior.
Isn’t it just about asking me to leave Bei Tian city? What is so inconvenient about disclosing this?
I felt like Long Shan was deliberately saying it ambiguously to arouse Ziyuan’s curiosity, but Ziyuan didn’t seem to be curious about what we were discussing. She simply nodded as if she understood it and then stopped asking about it. “Liusu is with Officer Dong. They went to Ms. Mo’s office together. The police are asking for information about Gong Fanlin from everyone in the office one by one…”
Speaking of this, Ziyuan revealed an expression of disbelief, “I didn’t expect that the incident that night was planned by Gong Fanlin in advance. If I knew it, I wouldn’t have accepted their invitation…”
Ziyuan was a kind-hearted girl. When she found out that it was actually Gong Fanlin who planned the attack that night, the first thing she thought was actually to blame herself for accepting the invitation.
I flicked her forehead softly and smiled: “It has nothing to do with you. Even if you didn’t accept their invitation this time, they would still invite you the next time. Do you think we will be able to avoid it? Besides, it was not because of you that Gong Fanlin wanted to hire gangsters to attack Brother Wei and me.”
Ziyuan responded stubbornly, “I more or less have some responsibilities…”
“Then wouldn’t your mother’s responsibility be even bigger?” I looked at Ziyuan’s beautiful face and said jokingly. “If she hadn’t given birth to such a beautiful daughter, Gong Fanlin wouldn’t have been attracted to you.”
Ziyuan has never been a confident person since she was a child. Every time I complimented her, she would think that I was making fun of her. So not only would she not feel embarrassed, but she would even feel slightly annoyed.
She pinched me fiercely and said in a huff, “Stop making fun of me. Also, what does this thing have anything to do with my mom.”
“Isn’t this your own logic?”
“I…” Ziyuan was choked by my response, but she was relieved a lot.
“Ahem!” With an awkward dry cough, Mo Yizhi next to us scolded with a stern face: “Are you two done chatting? Did I hire you to come to my company to chat around? Get back to your work! “
The gazes of the people in the office that had just been attracted by our conversation immediately scattered in panic. Although Mo Yizhi had an angry expression on his face, I knew that he was just pretending.
The news that Mo Yizhi got mad in Mo Fei’s office quickly spread to every corner of Fengchang. He may look weak and old, but his voice was thunderous. When he suddenly roared angrily in the office, not to mention the general operation team, even the entire investment department could hear his angry roar.
He publicly announced the decision to fire Gong Fanlin and stated that he would investigate thoroughly why this kind of person would be hired into the company. I didn’t know if he was really unaware that it was Mo Fei who hired Gong Fanlin into the company, or he simply pretended that he didn’t know, but his furious look indeed shocked and scared many employees in the company; so much so that when the two managers of the human resource department heard about it, they hurriedly came to the investment department and waited outside Mo Fei’s office tremblingly.
I believed that their panicked looks had also been seen by Zhang Mingjie. This was the purpose of Mo Yizhi. He wanted the Zhang family to clearly know his anger at the moment.
Three employees of the investment department were injured, and Mo Fei, the apple of the chairman’s eye, was almost harmed as well. So who would doubt Mo Yizhi’s pretentious act at this moment?
. . .
Before getting off work, Guo Xiang called me, saying that he wanted to invite me to dinner. This actually reminded me that because of the Shu family’s visit, I didn’t go to visit my parents and had dinner with them for a week. My stepmother even called me several times, complaining to me over the phone that I hadn’t visited her for a ‘very long time’.
Now that I finally had free time, it was time for me to visit my parents. Otherwise, if my stepmother decided to suddenly come to visit me instead, she would definitely bump into Dong Xiaoye and Dongfang Lianren who were currently living in my flat. At that time, who knows what would happen.
I don’t deny that I was deliberately avoiding Guo Xiang. If he simply wanted to chat with me and have a casual conversation, naturally I would not decline his invitation. But I knew that this invitation was not that simple. Most likely, he wanted to properly thank me for not pressing charges against Liu Xiaosheng on behalf of Xingyu, and secondly, he probably wanted to remind me to be careful of the Liu family.
Since even Mo Yizhi also knew about the breakup between Liu Xiaosheng and Li Song, there was no way that Guo Xiang, who was dating Liu Xiaosheng’s younger sister, didn’t know anything about it.
I didn’t want to see Xingyu’s tears anymore. Her elder brother’s injury more or less had something to do with me. I wouldn’t mind it if she blamed me for it, but the problem was that she would only blame herself for having this kind of elder brother; it would only make me feel very awkward.
In the end, I declined Guo Xiang’s invitation and told him that I was too tired. This was actually not a lie. As one of the victims, I was questioned by the police for three hours and 27 minutes. I didn’t even have time to go to the company’s canteen for lunch.
In the beginning, I thought that all the police needed was some statement from the people in the office; it should be quick and easy, after all, they already had enough evidence. Not to mention that Dong Xiaoye was also there, so I was not that worried. But what I didn’t expect was that the officer who took my statement was Wang Jie, who didn’t like me at all.
