Chapter 23

Edited by: Mochiusagi



At noon.


"Yin Xiu, let 's go eat." Ji Xueqing stretched herself in the chair as she said to Yin Xiu. Her actions accentuated her hot body. 


Hearing her words, Yin Xiu put down the information booklet in his hand and replied: "Okay!" The two got up and walked out of the office.


It was already around twelve o'clock, noon, and the rest of the staff also gradually put down their work temporarily, as they chatted with each other while heading out for lunch. 


"Manager Ji."


"Manager Ji!"


(Decided to use Manager instead of Boss) 


"Handsome Yin..."


The staff greeted Ji Xueqing successively, some also greeted Yin Xiu.


"Alright everyone, let's go eat first." Ji Xueqing said.


Yin Xiu smiled slightly as a response to the girls who greeted him.


The two of them had just walked out of the door of the company, when they were greeted by a pair of bright eyes. The owner of such eyes was a man of about 26-27 years old. He dressed slick and wore a smile on his face, he looked very eager.


However, when Ji Xueqing saw the man, her two dainty eyebrows frowned. It's obvious that she really didn't like this person.


"Xueqing, off work? Did you receive the flowers I sent you in the morning? I also just booked a spot at 'Feili Western Restaurant'. If you have no other arrangements this afternoon, why not have a meal with me? Apart from their steaks, Feili also has all kinds of Western desserts that are quite good..." The man approached Ji Xueqing with great vigour and liveliness.


Yin Xiu, who was next to Ji Xueqing, heard the man's words and couldn't help but glance at the man.


So the 'love bouquet' in the morning was from this guy!


Seeing the man, Yin Xiu now agreed with Ji Xueqing's decision of distributing the flowers to everyone without even looking at them.


Although the man in front of him looked very sunny and handsome in appearance, Yin Xiu saw vanity in the man's eyes and expression.


This person was obviously not so sunny on the inside. Such a person was definitely not worthy of a serious relationship.


Ji Xueqing also knew this man's character, so she just replied lightly: "Oh, no Mr. Li, my colleague and I have already made an appointment for a meal. I also don't like you wasting your money on me."


"In addition, please call me Manager Ji or Miss Ji. We are not familiar enough to call each other by name."


Ji Xueqing deliberately kept a sufficient distance between them. Her tone and attitude of  speech were even more indifferent. It was obvious that she did not want to say more nor have any entanglement with the other party.


After she finished speaking, Ji Xueqing turned around and said to Yin Xiu: "Let's go."


"Un." Yin Xiu nodded lightly. He glanced at the man called 'Mr. Li' and prepared to go to the elevator with Ji Xueqing.


Ji Xueqing’s words made Li Mingwei’s face a little stiff, but he obviously wouldn’t give up so easily. He continued: "Okay. Then where is Miss Ji going to eat now? Can I have the honor of having a meal with Miss Ji?"


Ji Xueqing still wore an indifferent expression and replied without even looking at him: "I'm sorry, I already promised my colleague the meal. If Mr. Li were to come, it would be inappropriate."


Ji Xueqing basically just repeated her previous words, only altering the terms of the words used, and straightforwardly refused. Li Mingwei's unhappiness became uncontrollable, the expression on his face became even more stiff. 


However, Ji Xueqing obviously didn't care about the other party's thoughts. Ji Xueqing was constantly being pestered by him and was naturally annoyed. Hence, she continued: "Mr. Li, I will tell you clearly again. I really don't have any feelings towards you. So maybe, please don’t bother me again. Also, don't send me more flowers or anything in the future, I can't accept it.” After that, Ji Xueqing went straight to the elevator; not caring about how ugly Li Mingwei’s face became, as it turned black and blue... 


Although he had been rejected by Ji Xueqing before, she was not as straightforward as she was this time. She basically did not save him any face.


Obviously, Ji Xueqing did give him face by only implying not to pursue her anymore. But Li Mingwei didn't even bother pondering Ji Xueqing's refusal and instead continued pestering, even stalking Ji Xueqing. He was basically harassing her. Now that Ji Xueqing couldn't bear it any longer, she rejected him openly this time. Who cares about giving him face at this point? 


Seeing Ji Xueqing and Yin Xiu walking into the elevator together, Li Mingwei gritted his teeth secretly, a bit of resentment and anger flashing in his eyes.


"You lowlife! Rotten b*tch! How dare you talk to me like that? Who do you think you are?"


"I am just asking for a meal, but you repeatedly refused this boss. Just you wait... I will strip you naked and make you beg for me in bed like a wh*re!"


Li Mingwei gritted his teeth and stared where Ji Xueqing was last seen. Resentment filled his heart.


Yin Xiu's opinion of this guy's character wasn't wrong, in fact he was very accurate. Although Li Mingwei was handsome and looked pretty sunny on the surface, he was in fact, a self-righteous arrogant prick that had a narrow heart. 


Ji Xueqing's relentless refusal had caused resentment to gather in his heart.


Of course, this resentment was not because of this time's refusal. It didn't appear suddenly, but instead had gradually accumulated in the passage of time. Ji Xueqing's straightforward refusal this time simply triggered this hidden resentment and made it burn furiously. 


In the elevator. 


There was only Yin Xiu and Ji Xueqing in the elevator. There was no one else. Taking the chance that no one was around, Yin Xiu asked Ji Xueqing a personal question, "That person has been chasing you for a while, right?"


"Ah. It started a few days after I moved the company office to this office building two months ago. If I had known this would happen, I would not have chosen this office building."


Ji Xueqing replied.


Yin Xiu nodded, "You were right to reject him just now, that person is not an honest and kind person. It's also because of this that I'm afraid, since you rejected him bluntly, he might feel resentful."


Ji Xueqing helplessly smiled, she said:" What can I do other than rejecting him straightforwardly? I have already declined him several times before, but he was still so unreasonably persistent. I made it clear today so that he won’t bother me in the future."


After a pause, Ji Xueqing suddenly asked: "Based on what you just said, are you able to tell a person's character?"


"More or less, yes. The eyes and expression of that person just now were obviously a bit exaggerated. It was marked with hypocrisy. Although this kind of person is not necessarily a 'bad person', it is definitely not much better than an actual one."Yin Xiu replied.


"It seems that you have a lot of knowledge in this field..." Ji Xueqing looked at Yin Xiu with great interest. "Then can you tell mine? What kind of person do you think I am?"


"You?"


Yin Xiu smiled as he stared at the slightly raised white chin of Ji Xueqing, he said: "From my experience with you in the past two days, you should be a relatively gentle and quiet character."


"It seems that the impression I gave you is quite good. Hehe." Ji Xueqing smiled.
