Chapter 52:1 Want to Resign
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Wencheng suddenly spoke in the originally quiet space, scaring Meng Nianyao. She quickly turned around, her fair little face filled with confusion and fear.
Gu Wencheng didn’t expect Meng Nianyao to be so easily frightened. He coughed a little guiltily and changed the topic. “Good morning. I’ll go take a shower first.” After saying that, he quickly left.
Ten minutes later, Gu Wencheng came out of the shower and Meng Nianyao’s breakfast was ready. The two of them ate breakfast silently. When they were almost done, Gu Wencheng said, “When your condition is better, come to work with me.”
Meng Nianyao originally wanted to tell Gu Wencheng about her resignation, but he mentioned it, so she said, “1 want to resign.”
Gu Wencheng paused for a moment and frowned, but he quickly let go.”Why?”
“Meng Haotian has already received his retribution. There’s no need for me to stay in the Gu Corporation. Most importantly, I studied architecture and interior design. Staying by your side as your secretary…” After a pause, she shook her head and continued, “1 don’t like it.”
Gu Wencheng was silent for a few seconds. “So you’re planning to leave and get a new job?”
Meng Nianyao nodded.
“Then which company do you think is better than the Gu Corporation?” Gu Wencheng put down his coffee cup and looked at her seriously. “The Gu Corporation plans to enter the real estate industry in the next stage. There’s also an entertainment city project in progress. The project department will be hiring a group of designers in the near future.”
Meng Nianyao lowered her eyes, seemingly in deep thought.
Gu Wencheng looked at the time. “Take your time to think about it. I’ll give you ten minutes to pack up and go to the company with me.” After that, Gu Wencheng went to change his clothes.
Ten minutes later, Meng Nianyao came out after changing her own clothes. There was a chauffeur waiting for her downstairs. Meng Nianyao and Gu Wencheng got into the car together. When they were about to reach the company, Meng Nianyao suddenly said, “Stop at that corner. I’ll get off there.”
The driver didn’t answer and looked at Gu Wencheng through the rearview mirror.
Gu Wencheng turned his head and glanced at Meng Nianyao.”What’s wrong?”
Gu Wencheng shifted his gaze to the documents. “Continue driving, don’t stop.” “Gu Wencheng, are you playing dumb?” Meng Nianyao laughed. What would the people in the company say if I took the same car as you to work?”
Gu Wencheng finished reading the last page of the document and closed it. “What about it?”
Meng Nianyao took a deep breath. She didn’t know if Gu Wencheng really didn’t understand, or if he had been in a high position for a long time and didn’t want to understand. She looked at Gu Wencheng and said word by word, “In the Gu Corporation, you stand at the top of the food chain. You can be high and mighty and ignore the comments of others, but I can’t. The influence of rumors is enough to kill people. 1 don’t want people to speculate whether I’m your mistress or if I have an improper relationship with you. I don’t want to be the center of gossip.”
“You can tell them that you’re Mrs. Gu, whom I’ve officially married.”
Meng Nianyao was stunned. Perhaps her expression was too obvious. Gu Wencheng raised his eyebrows and asked, “What’s wrong? Are you unwilling?”
Meng Nianyao’s heart was in a mess. Just as the car turned the corner, Meng Nianyao knocked on the car door. “Stop the car.”
The driver hesitated, but seeing that Gu Wencheng didn’t speak, he slowly stopped the car.
Meng Nianyao got out of the car and walked forward without looking back.
Gu Wencheng was silent as he stared at Meng Nianyao’s back until her figure was submerged in the crowd. He coldly said, “Drive.”
Meng Nianyao’s grip on her bag tightened as she watched the black car slowly drive by. She couldn’t see through Gu Wencheng’s attitude. Their marriage was a product of a deal, but he was getting closer and closer to her, and his attitude was getting more and more ambiguous. This made Meng Nianyao feel a little confused and annoyed. She no longer believed in love, and she didn’t believe that anyone would be good to the other unconditionally. Moreover, there was no love between her and Gu Wencheng. There was only an exchange of interests. The more she thought about it, the more confused she became. Her mind was a mess.
Meng Nianyao followed the crowd through the traffic lights. When they reached the Gu Corporation building, she let out a long sigh and walked in. It was rush hour, and the elevator was full of people.
Meng Nianyao was squeezed into the innermost part of the elevator when she heard someone in front whisper, “Hey, do you know who the assistant beside President Gu is? Our company’s position is so difficult to apply for, yet she suddenly became the CEO’s assistant without a sound.”
“What’s her background? She’s good-looking and knows how to seduce people.”One of them said in a strange tone.
As soon as he finished speaking, many people exclaimed or sneered..
