Chapter 120: The Chaos Rises Again (5)
Just like Rong Yan had expected due to his sharp instincts, Old Mr. Rong broached the topic merrily over dinner.
“Lass Anning, you should have learned quite a bit about business management when you were in the Holland International Institute of Butlers, right?”
Luo Anning put her chopsticks down and asked in slight bewilderment, “I did learn about finance management. What’s the matter, Grandpa?”
Jiang Peihua took over and placed some vegetables inside her bowl before saying, “Lass Anning, your Grandpa wants to arrange for you to work in Baina International so that you can help the rascal out too. They often say that a couple should work hand in hand together. Besides, you’re the wife of Baina’s CEO. It’s only a matter of time before you have to familiarize yourself with the company matters.”
“Grandpa, Mother… that doesn’t seem too appropriate,” Luo Anning said with a slight frown.
The deal between Old Mr. Rong was only known to them. He knew that she had no feelings for Rong Yan and yet, he still arranged for her to start working in Baina?
Isn’t he afraid that I might abuse my privilege as Mrs. CEO for personal reasons?
For the past two years, he had never asked her to start working at Baina International. Yet, why did he decide to do so now, so out of the blue?
Luo Anning suddenly found it hard to understand what Old Mr. Rong’s intentions were.
Jiang Peihua said, “Look at what you’re saying. You’re the wife of Baina’s CEO and it’s only reasonable for you to start working in Baina. There’s nothing too inappropriate about that.”
Old Mr. Rong nodded in agreement and glanced at Luo Anning.
“Anning, your mother is right. You can rest assured and start working in Baina. I will take care of you if you have any problems. You’ll get to learn plenty of things when you’re in the company too. Anyway, you don’t have anything else to do.”
Luo Anning was just thinking of turning him down. Rong Yan interjected, “Alright, we’ll do as Grandpa and Mother said.”
“You… ” Luo Anning glowered at him in exasperation and thought to herself, has he ever asked for my opinion!?!
“Okay, since the rascal has agreed, it’s settled then, Anning. You will report to the company tomorrow. You can take on any position that you’d like but with your background in butlering, you should be very meticulous. You’re more suited for being the CEO’s secretary,” Old Mr. Rong declared.
Rong Yan and Old Mr. Rong shot each other a glance with a look of enlightenment in their eyes.
Rong Yan smirked and thought, Grandpa is giving me and Luo Anning a chance to spend more time together. He suggested that she takes on the role of a secretary. He really knows what I’m thinking!
However, if given the past, he definitely would not allow her to enter Baina and would have turned down the suggestion at all costs. But now.., he decided to wait and see what the future had in store for them.
Luo Anning initially had the chance to find an excuse to turn him down. However, Rong Yan’s words caused her hopes to be dashed. She secretly glared at him and decided to bury her head in her food to look away from him.
Along the way from Old Mr. Rong’s place back to Luxury Mansion, Luo Anning cocked her head towards the window and stared at the scenery outside. She decided to ignore Rong Yan throughout.
No matter how hard he tries to provoke or pester her, Luo Anning would stay firm to the principle of silence being gold.
After Rong Yan took a shower at night, he headed out of the bedroom and walked towards Luo Anning’s bedroom. Just as he was about to push the door open, he discovered that it was locked from inside!
“Luo Anning, open the door!”
Luo Anning had just finished showering in the bedroom and she laid comfortably on the bed. Upon hearing the sounds of Rong Yan gritting his teeth angrily coming from outside the bedroom, her mood was instantly lifted.
