Chapter 163 – How to broach the subject (1)
Under Manager Yang’s adamant convincing, Yan Shuyu finally agreed to give the boss a heads up first before she went to cash the check. Just like how she had reassured the rich woman, she’s one with very intact work ethics.
That being said, she still has a bit of a guilty conscience when it comes to reaching out to the boss out of the blue and telling him to stop seeing her. That wasn’t breaking up amicably, that was straight up looking for trouble. So Yan Shuyu’s plan was to do nothing until the boss came looking for her. Then, she would be able to tell him that she was a person of her words. Now that she has accepted the check, he would need to stay away from her.
After her limited contacts with the boss, Yan Shuyu already had some stuff figured out. She felt that if only the boss really wanted to flirt around, they were not talking about the scale of a pond, they were talking about an entire ocean of fish for him to choose from. He was the master of keeping just the curious distance.
She has a better idea now. The boss might really be busy, or that he simply enjoyed cooking frogs in a pot of warm water. They have just seen each other for a week. If the pattern held, the boss would show up again this weekend. She could just wait patiently – as long as the check didn’t expire, she could just wait around for the time being.
Without cashing the check, that meant her agreement with the rich woman was not yet in effect. Yan Shuyu continued to go to work at the coffee shop.
Even though she has a 2 million yuan check in hand and that she could become an instant millionaire any minute, her painful experience from the transmigration taught her to never get too comfortable. Nevermind that she hasn’t cashed the check yet, even if the money was already in her bank account, she would still be going to work. Not having income at all was a bad idea. At most she’d do was to slack off a little during work in the future.
And just like that, Yan Shuyu acted like nothing had changed and carried on with her low-key and busy life.
Yan Shuyu did nothing in the next few days that followed. The rich woman, unexpectedly, never reached out to her again. That was very out of character of her considering her high and mighty attitude the other day. That made Yan Shuyu worried. She couldn’t help but pull the check out again from her drawer at home and went to confirm it with Manager Yang. “You sure this check is real, right?”
Yang Zifeng, “……”
As speechless as he was, he still took the check and verified it for her. “Yes, don’t worry. It’s a real check. Plus, anyone that has anything to do with Boss Zhou are rich people. If words got out that they have given you a fake check, it’d make them look very bad.”
Yan Shuyu thought about it and agreed with him. Status was very important with those from a prestigious family. The rich woman even thought that writing a 500,000 yuan check for her was an insult and voluntarily increased the amount four folds. By that logic, that’s no reason why this check would be fake.
Once again, she cautiously put the check back into her purse.
Looking at her pious look, Manager Yang couldn’t help but make fun of her. “If you have time to worry about the authenticity of the check, have you thought about what you are going to say to Boss Zhou?”
“……” Now it was Yan Shuyu’s turn to be speechless.
She had been very torn lately. On one hand, she looked forward to the boss coming, that way she could resolve the issue and go cash the check; on the other hand, she wished he’d come later in time as she wanted to procrastinate the conversation as much as possible.
Nevertheless, when it rains it pours. Yan Shuyu, once again, “ran” into Boss Zhou on her way home from work that day.
