Chapter 68: A True Workaholic
Du Jiuyuan was busy packing after the event and was prepared to leave first. When she walked past Ji Jingchen, he called out to her.
“Du Jiuyuan, I… I’m going to hold a press conference in a few days. I want you to style me up.” Ji Jingchen mustered up a lot of courage before he said it. Du Jiuyuan’s mind was full of question marks.
‘What? Is he going to have a change of career and turn into a celebrity instead? What is this annoying man up to this time?’
“The clothes that I wore to all the events in the country were all matched by you previously. Now, I don’t have any women with aesthetic standards by my side, so it’s very troublesome.” Ji Jingchen’s deep voice was easily intoxicating.
Du Jiuyuan had forgotten that although Ji Jingchen was not a top-notch celebrity like Lu Ziang, he was still a famous person in Hong Kong City. He had to dress appropriately for all kinds of events.
Du Jiuyuan suddenly felt that she had lost out on a lot of opportunities. Previously, she had been his personal stylist, but she had received nothing but pain in return.
“If you want me to do your styling, I can. But, you need to go through the normal procedures and confirm the time and place of the work arrangement. Oh right, let me remind you that my services are not cheap.” Du Jiuyuan would not let the opportunity of milking money out from Ji Jingchen.
It was not that she didn’t want to block Ji Jingchen out of her life, but what He Lili said was right. The more she avoided it, the more it proved that she could not let him go. Ji Jingchen’s face inexplicably darkened a little. He did not like Du Jiuyuan’s cold attitude towards him.
“I won’t haggle over the price. Can I make an appointment now?” Ji Jingchen forced a smile and tried his best to make himself look more amiable.
Du Jiuyuan pursed her lips. ‘Ji Jingchen, can I say that your smile is uglier than when you are crying?’
No matter who you make enemies with, money should not be one of them. Du Jiuyuan put on a business-like smile, “Of course you can. Send me the specific time and place on WeChat. I’ll arrange it. Oh right, I have to tell you that I need to take a photo of the final styling result and post it on Weibo.”
After saying that, Du Jiuyuan turned around and left. Ji Jingchen didn’t know what WeChat was. He only downloaded it because of Du Jiuyuan. He only had a few friends on that application.
“What’s Weibo?” It was hard to imagine that Ji Jingchen, who was holding the most advanced mobile phone, didn’t know what kind of application Weibo was.
“It’s a social media application, also the gathering place of all the big celebrities’ fans. The Ji Corporation also has an official Weibo page,” Jiang Cheng, who was beside Ji Jingchen, explained concisely.
“Download it for me.” Ji Jingchen unlocked his phone and tossed it to Jiang Cheng.
Jiang Cheng downloaded Weibo for him and registered it with Ji Jingchen’s phone number. He immediately followed Yuan Hua’s Weibo account.
Ji Jingchen usually did nothing but work. He was a workaholic in every sense of the word. He was adept at using office software but knew nothing about the software on his phone.
He had only learned a little about WeChat after a long time.
Du Jiuyuan didn’t drive here today. She took a taxi out of the hotel. In the taxi, she watched her Weibo fans increase. Lu Ziang’s fans left comments on her Weibo.
“Wow! My Prince Charming is so handsome!”
“I want to bear children for Prince Charming!”
“Prince Charming will go with this style from now on! He’s so handsome!”
Du Jiuyuan’s skills combined with Lu Ziang’s good looks made the fans praise him. Du Jiuyuan read a few comments and then left Weibo. Two messages were sent on WeChat. One was a friend request from Jiang Cheng, and the other was sent by Ji Jingchen.
Jiang Cheng was Ji Jingchen’s right-hand man. Besides, this person didn’t have any bad intentions and was just silly. Du Jiuyuan hesitated for a while and then clicked yes.
Then, she saw that Ji Jingchen had texted her to meet him at Ji Corporation three days later. Du Jiuyuan replied with an emoji indicating that she understood, then put her phone away. She felt dizzy playing with her phone while sitting in the taxi.
Lu Ziang was enjoying the feeling of being adored by the fans in the hotel lobby. Ji Jingchen was fully focused on his phone in the lounge. In just a short while, he had already opened WeChat several times. Other than an update from Tencent News, there wasn’t a single message.
Just as he was hesitating whether to draft another WeChat message and send it over, and an emoji popped up from Du Jiuyuan indicating that she got his message.
“If you have anything to say, just say it,” Ji Jingchen replied to her message.
He held his phone and waited for a while, but did not receive a reply from Du Jiuyuan. He frowned slightly.
“Jiang Cheng, how do I check the WeChat moments?” Ji Jingchen fiddled with it for a while, but could not find Du Jiuyuan’s WeChat moments. He chose to ask Jiang Cheng for help.
Jiang Cheng took Ji Jingchen’s phone and pressed a few buttons.
