Monday came. It was another working day. Just like all the other Mondays, Ke Group’s employees came by car, public transport, or taxi. The front door was filled with employees.
Some employees would go to the opposite street to buy sandwiches at the coffee shop to eat in the morning. However, today, these people realised that the shop next to the coffee shop had been fully renovated and the exterior was very beautiful.
Looking at the signboard, the Ke Group’s employees were all shocked. Then, they exploded. Was this shop owned by Manager Jiang? But based on the location, no matter if it was rented or bought, the price wasn’t cheap.
What kind of store was it though? The name of the store was so special.
Quite a few employees loitered the outside of the store to chat.
“This shop doesn’t seem to be open yet.”
“Yeah, but the exterior looks really exquisite.”
“Could this be given to Manager Jiang by the President?”
“What kind of shop is it? Looks like a bookstore…….”
Jiang Qi sat in Ke Yan’s car and saw the people standing outside his shop. He suddenly thought of something. “Ke Yan, if I leave to open the shop, who will my role be given to?”
“Have a look at your subordinates. See if there’s anyone who can take over you.”
“I suddenly feel a little reluctant. Reluctant to leave the company.” He worked in the company for quite a few years. Even though he always complained that he was tired, he still felt a little reluctant to leave.
“The bookstore is right opposite the company. You can come over when you feel like you miss it. Besides, even if you open the shop, you would be coming to the office often.”
“You’re so sure?”
“Of course. I’m at the office. You’ll come over to see me when you’re free and will come over for lunch.”
“That’s true too.”
Just in time, the car stopped at the carpark.
Jiang Qi and Ke Yan got out of the car. The people in the carpark saw them and kept sneakily glancing over. Some felt that there was a little odd atmosphere for some unknown reason.
Wang Si Qi came to the office without looking at the street opposite, so she hadn’t known of the matter. However, she heard the people in the office discussing it and ran to look out of the window. The level was too high and she could not see the signboard. But she could see that the store had definitely finished renovating. Was that really what Ke Yan gave Jiang Qi?
Wang Si Qi had thought of stealing Ke Yan, but Ke Yan seemed to be really in love with Jiang Qi. How could she even have a chance to steal?
But she was also unwilling to give up now.
Sun Nian Qing had naturally known too, but she didn’t think like Wang Si Qi. As long as it was what she desired, she would definitely be able to get it.
So, for the entire day today, Sun Nian Qing tried to find the chance when Ke Yan was alone. During office hours, she couldn’t go, but during lunch break, Ke Yan and Jiang Qi were together. This made Sun Nian Qing, who couldn’t find an opportunity, feel like vomiting blood.
However, if she couldn’t meet Ke Yan, she could find Jiang Qi.
She knew that Jiang Qi would always go to the tearoom alone to have some bread every afternoon, so Sun Nian Qing went to the tearoom to find Jiang Qi today.
The company provided free bread and snacks. Jiang Qi would always go a little earlier before everyone else to have some snacks. He was always hungry early.
Sun Nian Qing went to the tearoom Jiang Qi frequented and had indeed seen Jiang Qi inside.
“Manager Jiang.” Sun Nian Qing called out to Jiang Qi.
“Ms. Sun? Any problems?”
“I do have something to look for you for.” Sun Nian Qing sat on the seat facing Jiang Qi.
“What’s the matter?”
Jiang Qi paused his eating movements.
“I want you to leave Ke Yan.” Sun Nian Qing directly stated.
“What?” Jiang Qi still thought that he heard wrongly.
“You’re not suitable to be with Ke Yan and besides, I like him.”
“Ms. Sun, although I understand the reason why you said such things to me, it isn’t up to you to decide if I am suitable or not. Only Ke Yan has the right to say so.” Jiang Qi frowned.
“Don’t you know, you are a male. Not only would you be unable to help Ke Yan, but by being with him, you would also harm him. How would the world see him? His family? They would only be disappointed in him. If the media knows that Ke Yan likes men, how would the industry view Ke Yan? Ke Yan can only break up with you under such circumstances. You might as well break up now, so that he can be free from such troubles.” Sun Nian Qing said agitatedly, even her body was heating up.
“If Ke Yan was such a person, I would not have fallen for him.” Jiang Qi heard the words of Sun Nian Qing and replied after letting her calm down a little. “For you to say such words just shows that you don’t understand Ke Yan. He isn’t such a person. Even if the others are like that, Ke Yan would not act like that.”
“You are so self-confident?” Sun Nian Qing smiled mockingly.
“It’s not me being self-confident. It’s me believing in Ke Yan.”
“I believe in my beauty and talents. Ke Yan will definitely fall for me and will leave you.” Sun Nian Qing said, beaming with self-confidence.
Jiang Qi was silent for a while. “Us men are not that shallow.” Jiang Qi hadn’t wanted to phrase it like that, but Sun Nian Qing being like this really made him unable to help it.
“What?” Sun Nian Qing was obviously taken aback by Jiang Qi’s words and even forgot the words she wanted to say.
“Look.” Jiang Qi showed the ring on his hand to Sun Nian Qing.
“Ri, ring?” Sun Nian Qing saw the ring on Jiang Qi’s finger. This was what…… Ke Yan bought? The one she saw Ke Yan buy? Right, ‘JQ’, wasn’t it Jiang Qi?
Sun Nian Qing wasn’t just surprised, she was astonished.
“There are many good men out there.” Jiang Qi couldn’t bear to see Sun Nian Qing like this and so he said this.
“No need for your concern.” Sun Nian Qing glared at Jiang Qi. “Ke Yan’s parents would definitely disapprove of your relationship.”
“Uhhm, that, they have already agreed.” Jiang Qi looked at Sun Nian Qing. “Actually, Ke Yan had already brought me to meet his parents. But, there are many others out there who are better than Ke Yan, and so many good men out there too.” Jiang Qi didn’t know why, but he was now resolving Sun Nian Qing’s heart tangles and sighed. He was only so close to introducing men to Sun Nian Qing.
“Are the good men more handsome than Ke Yan? Can they give me the position of the president’s wife? Get lost, no need for you to care.” Sun Nian Qing stood up and left.
Jiang Qi silently finished his bread alone and then returned to his office.
It also wasn’t good if men were too handsome…
