Shan Yi was actually a bit surprised.
She didn’t expect them to meet again so soon.
City A is really small, to think that they could run into each other like this.

However, if it weren’t for the fact that the restroom on the 18th floor was under maintenance, they might not have met so quickly.

Shen Tiantian’s blushing face just now made Shan Yi recall last night.
She chuckled and brushed her hair behind her ear, revealing a sesame seed-sized mole at the end of her eyebrow.

Shen Tiantian walked back to her office, her face still flushed with embarrassment. 

Lu Xiaochun leaned in again, with a gossipy expression and said, “It seems that Manager Tian got scolded by the new executive.
That guy was so fierce.”

Shen Tiantian glanced at her, smiled and started her work for the day.

“Anyway, you need to be careful not to get caught by her…”

“Lu Xiaochun, are you free?”

Lu Xiaochun had not finished speaking when a voice came from above her, causing her colleagues to lower their heads in fear of being implicated.

“You guys, you don’t have high abilities but you like to be lazy.
You just know how to loaf around and have no motivation to improve yourselves…”

Although Shen Tiantian did not reply, the manager was clearly not in a good mood and both of them were being ‘educated’ together in the end.

It’s generally not a good idea to gossip about your boss during work hours, especially if they happen to overhear it.
Anyone would be unhappy in that situation. 

Feeling guilty, Lu Xiaochun remained silent for the rest of the morning, finally approaching Shen Tiantian with an apology during their lunch break.

“Sorry, Tiantian.
I feel bad that you got scolded too,” Lu Xiaochun said, her face filled with regret.

Shen Tiantian stretched her body and rubbed her sore shoulders before laughing, “It’s okay.”

“To show my apology, I’ll treat you to some milk tea,” Lu Xiaochun said with a generous smile that was as infectious as her kind heart. 

Shen Tiantian couldn’t contain her laughter and exposed her friend, “You’re just using this as an excuse to get some milk tea for yourself.”

“Don’t rat me out, I’m hurt,” Lu Xiaochun pouted, “I need the milk tea to replenish my energy.”

Shen Tian Tian: …

She knew it.


Lu Xiaochun loves to drink milk tea.
To her, there’s no problem that a cup of milk tea can’t fix.
And if one cup doesn’t do the trick, she’ll simply indulge in a second cup.

Shen Tiantian has a relatively quiet personality and she gets along well with others.
On the other hand, Lu Xiaochun is extremely outgoing, but her directness can sometimes cause unintentional offense.

Their relationship in the office is good, and they occasionally go to the company cafeteria together for meals.
Shen Tiantian followed Lu Xiaochun to a nearby milk tea shop.

During the lunch rush hour, the queue was nearly half an hour long before they were able to buy two cups of red bean milk tea.

“Tiantian, what do you want for lunch?” Lu Xiaochun took a big sip of her milk tea, turned her head and asked, with a satisfied expression on her face as she chewed on the red beans.

Shen Tiantian looked around the nearby restaurants, which were mostly crowded at this time.
She didn’t have anything in particular she wanted to eat, so she asked, “Do you have anything in mind?”

“Is it Tuesday today?” Lu Xiaochun asked, seeming to avoid the question.

Shen Tiantian thought for a moment and nodded, asking, “Yeah, why?”

“Let’s go to the company cafeteria!” Lu Xiaochun said with a grin, “I want to have their sweet and sour pork.”

Shen Tiantian replied, “Sure.”

Perhaps out of habit from holding her boyfriend’s hand, Lu Xiaochun didn’t let go of Shen Tiantian’s hand throughout the entire outing.

The company cafeteria is on the seventh floor.
Everyone should have left work by now, and there were only two people in the elevator – them.
For some reason, out of the blue, Lu Xiaochun asked, “Do you think Manager Tian has a boyfriend?”

Tian Jing was only in her early thirties, and she appeared to have taken care of herself well despite looking slightly fatigued.
In fact, she looked two or three years younger than her actual age.
Additionally, she was also successful in her career, so there should be no shortage of suitors.

However, this was a personal matter, and Shen Tiantian didn’t want to pry into her boss’s private life too much.
“I don’t know,” she replied.

Lu Xiaochun thought for a moment and said, “How about I introduce my younger brother to her, so that she won’t bother me anymore?”

Shen Tiantian: …

She didn’t know if Lu Xiaochun’s younger brother had a grudge against her or Tian Jing.
She remembered that he was only in his early twenties and had just graduated from college.
He was introduced to someone twice in one day.

Lu Xiaochun suddenly became excited and asked, “What do you think?” However, Shen Tiantian only forced a smile in response, and as soon as the elevator reached the seventh floor, they walked out and the conversation came to an end.

It had been more than half an hour past the end of work, so there weren’t many people in the cafeteria, only a few scattered tables.
Shen Tiantian ordered a vegetable salad and a thick-cut steak with a side of milk tea, while Lu Xiaochun was lucky to get the last serving of sweet and sour spare ribs.
They found a relatively quiet spot to sit down.

Lu Xiaochun didn’t talk much while eating, so they finished quickly, and it was not even 1:30 yet.

 After washing their hands, Lu Xiaochun naturally circled her arm around Shen Tiantian’s, although Shen Tiantian wasn’t used to it, she didn’t pull her arm back.

The elevator opened on the seventh floor, with two women standing one in front of the other.
When Shen TianTian saw the face of the person in front of her, she was momentarily stunned.

‘Wasn’t this the woman who walked in on me doing something embarrassing in the bathroom earlier?’

Due to her embarrassment and haste to leave in the morning, she had only managed to steal a few glances.
However, upon seeing her up close now, she couldn’t help but notice that the woman was practically flawless – it was difficult to pinpoint any flaws in her features.

She was stunning.

A hint of surprise flashed in Shan Yi’s eyes, and she once again marveled at how small the company was.
But her gaze fell on their intertwined hands, her expression shifted and her eyes narrowed slightly.

Shen Tiantian followed her gaze to her own hand and suddenly had an impulse to pull it back, but she didn’t.

Meanwhile, Lu Xiaochun was also stunned and couldn’t move her feet.

The elevator closed at the scheduled time, and they only reacted after a while.
But before they could press the button again, the door reopened.

“Aren’t you coming in?”

As a sweet voice interrupted their thoughts, Shen Tiantian and her colleague snapped out of their daze.
They exchanged a grateful nod and thanked the person before stepping into the elevator together.

Shan Yi took a step back and lowered her eyes, glancing at the intertwined hands of the two women, feeling a mix of emotions.
Her gaze was slightly ambiguous as she observed them.

As if sensing the woman’s gaze, Shen Tiantian blinked awkwardly, her heart beating faster.

No one spoke in the elevator, and they could only hear the faint sound of the elevator’s operation.
Shen Tiantian was afraid that her heartbeat would be heard, and nervously watched the numbers change, hoping that the elevator would reach the office floor soon.

For some reason, she was inexplicably nervous, especially knowing that the woman was looking at her.

“Ding!” The elevator stopped on the 17th floor, and Lu XiaoChun pulled her and hurried out.

Watching the two women flee, Shan Yi was speechless…

‘Was she that scary?’

The elevator closed, and soon stopped on the 18th floor.
Shan Yi walked out expressionlessly and said to her assistant behind her, “Help me sort out all the employee information in the marketing and research departments.”

Yang Li followed Shan Yi from the head office and has been with her since she joined the company, so she was well-prepared.
She quickly swiped a few times on the tablet as she walked and said, “The information has already been sent to your email.”

Shan Yi nodded and as she pushed the door open, she turned around and said, “We just arrived at Yuefeng, and there are a lot of things to do.
Take some time to rest.”

An empathetic boss is what many employees want, including Yang Li.
She smiled and nodded to her, “Thank you, CEO Shan.”

As soon as she closed the office door, Shan Yi immediately opened her laptop, and an email from Yang Li popped up.

She propped her chin up with one hand and slowly scrolled with the other hand.
In less than two minutes, her fingertips stopped, and a faint smile appeared at the corner of her eyes.

‘Shen Tiantian?’

She really was quite sweet.
