Chapter 197 - Getting Too Far into the Act
It was now half an hour after work was over so there was no one else in the Sales Department lobby. Xu Ruo Rou immediately thought of last time when Wang Chao also stopped her after work and wanted to disrespect her. That time, if Qin Feng didn’t come in time, Xu Ruo Rou would have been in trouble.
Wang Chao’s second shout scared Xu Ruo Rou so much that her entire body trembled. She extended her hand and felt the inside of her bag. A soft and furry little head poked out. It was the Pikachu Qin Feng gifted to her.
Because she was amidst a cold war with Qin Feng these past couple of days, Xu Ruo Rou felt really lonely. She brought Pikachu to work every day so she could at least feel a sliver of safety and reliability.
“Pikachu!” Pikachu extended its soft pink tongue, licked Xu Ruo Rou’s hand, and revealed a brilliant smile.
Xu Ruo Rou’s worried heart gradually relaxed. She clenched her teeth and headed into Wang Chao’s office.
“Group Leader Wang, y-you were looking for me?” Xu Ruo Rou intentionally left the door to the office open and stood at the entrance.
Wang Chao glared harshly at Xu Ruo Rou and reprimanded: “Are you standing at the doorway to be a door god? Come in!”
Xu Ruo Rou lowered her head and walked into the office. Wang Chao immediately shut the door and leaned on it. He looked coldly at Xu Ruo Rou: “Ruo Rou, three days from now is the day for the end of the month sales evaluation in the Sales Department. I’ve already decided that I’ll fire the person that’s ranked last on the list.”
“Ruo Rou, you’re in danger!”
Xu Ruo Rou trembled slightly and said nervously: “Group Leader Wang, I’ve been working really hard recently to improve my performance. I haven’t even talked to other co-workers during work. I’m sure you’ve seen that.”
Wang Chao naturally paid attention to Xu Ruo Rou’s recent performance. He saw that she didn’t pay attention to Qin Feng and the two slowly drifted apart. Wang Chao was extremely pleased.
“Ruo Rou, from what I see, you’ve just entered society and you’re still too foolish.” Wang Chao’s manner of speaking mellowed a bit and he said: “You think that in a company as large as Royal Group if you’re merely hard-working, upper management and leadership will acknowledge and recognize you?”
Wang Chao had a look of disappointment. He shook his head: “Our Royal Group has over a thousand employees, can you thump your chest and guarantee that you're the most hard-working one? Ruo Rou, you’re going about things the wrong way.”
“If you want someone in upper management to notice you, don’t be hard-working and wait for him to see you, you have to take the initiative to curry favor with this leader so they know you and are aware of your existence. This is what they call the study of one of the eight chakras of the human body in the workplace.” Wang Chao put on airs as if he were talking about general truths: “Who is your superior? Isn’t it me? You have to learn how to curry favor with me.
“Think about it, if you have a good relationship with me, even if you’re last place in the Sales Department sales rankings, if we have a certain leveled relationship, would I fire you? And think about the flip side. You usually purposely preserve a relationship with me like I’m some sort of bad guy, so even if you’re on the top of the monthly rankings in the Sales Department, do you think I wouldn’t find some excuse to fire you?
“Oh Ruo Rou, I’ve said so much to you, you probably understand?” Wang Chao’s gaze fell on Xu Ruo Rou’s body, and his eyes suddenly brightened.
“Group Leader Wang, I understand.”
Xu Ruo Rou understood all of this, but she wouldn’t do that because she had a baseline. At this time, she could only go along with Wang Chao and think of a way to leave as quickly as possible.
Wang Chao misunderstood Xu Ruo Rou and thought she already gotten everything straight due to the week’s worth of stress she had undergone. His face bloomed with a smile as he unbuckled his belt and looked at Xu Ruo Rou: “Aiya, Ruo Rou look, how did my belt fall? Help me fasten it.”
Xu Ruo Rou looked up. She saw Wang Chao undoing his belt and even unzipping the zipper on his pants. She said promptly in a fluster: “Group Leader Wang, don’t be like this. I want to go home!”
Wang Chao’s face immediately fell. He held up his pants and walked towards Xu Ruo Rou while reprimanding her: “Ruo Rou, do you not want to work here anymore? Your Group Leader Wang only asked you to help with one little thing and you’re not willing to do it? What’s wrong with helping me pull my zipper and fastening my belt?”
Last time, Wang Chao almost violated Xu Ruo Rou, so she was really vigilant. She immediately ran to a corner and hid from Wang Chao. Wang Chao looked at Xu Ruo Rou’s alluring body and charming face. He couldn’t resist it a long time ago, and the beast inside him burst out. He pounced at her.
Suddenly, a yellow shadow was like lightning and passed by with a flash.
Wang Chao immediately cried out pitifully once he felt the sharp claw digging into his neck.
“F*ck, what the f*ck is this?”
Pikachu already dropped to the ground and stood defensively in front of Xu Ruo Rou.
He originally had guts as small as a mouse, but when he saw that his owner was in danger, he stood out courageously. The hairs on his body stood up like he was electrocuted, and he glared fiercely at Wang Chao with bared teeth.
At this time, Wang Chao saw Pikachu clearly. Though he couldn’t tell what kind of animal he was, Pikachu was still the size of half a basketball, so he evidently wouldn’t scare Wang Chao.
He touched his neck and became extremely angry the instant he saw the fresh blood on his hand. He kicked Pikachu and sent him flying into the office wall, where he slid down limply.
Xu Ruo Rou was so shocked that she turned pale. She immediately hugged Pikachu, but no matter how she called on him, he didn’t respond. It seemed like it was dead.
An unnamed feeling arose in her heart, and this feeling seemed to have been suppressed inside her for far too long, so long that she already forgot she could get angry and indignant.
“Wang Chao, why did you hurt my pet? You won’t die a natural death!”
Even Xu Ruo Rou didn’t know where she got this courage from. She suddenly picked up a file from the table and threw it at Wang Chao’s head. Wang Chao was still in a daze. The plastic file struck his eyes, and it hurt so much that he covered his eyes, squatted on the ground, and cried pitifully.
Xu Ruo Rou took this chance to immediately open the locked door and run out. She ran while holding Pikachu and crying: “Pikachu, you can’t die. I’m bringing you home right now. I’m taking you to Qin Feng, he’ll certainly find a way to save and awaken you.”
This was Xu Ruo Rou’s first time ever calling a cab. She spent seventy-eight yuan riding from the company to the Qin Manor. Her little heart was still hurting, but to quickly save Pikachu, she gritted her teeth, paid the bill, and ran back to the Qin Manor.
“Qin Feng, Qing Feng…” Once Xu Ruo Rou got to the third floor, she wildly yelled Qin Feng’s name. She suddenly realized that she hadn’t yelled those two words in a really, really long time.
“Ruo Rou, what’s wrong?” Qin Feng ran out of his room. It was the first time he had seen Xu Ruo Rou so anxious.
“Qin Feng… Wahh, Pikachu’s about to die!” Xu Ruo Rou cried the whole way back, so her eyes were red and swollen. Qin Feng immediately tugged Xu Ruo Rou into his room and took Pikachu from her arms.
Right when he carried him, Qin Feng saw Pikachu stick his tongue out mischievously. He was so shocked that he almost threw Pikachu.
“Ruo Rou… you’re certain Pikachu is about to die?” Qin Feng asked suspiciously.
Xu Ruo Rou was still wiping her tears with a lovely, moving, and pitiful expression. She said anxiously: “Qin Feng, I… I was playing with Pikachu on the road, and accidentally let him fall from a high place. After falling, he didn’t get up. He won’t wake up however I call on him.”
Xu Ruo Rou still kept the Wang Chao situation to herself. She didn’t want Qin Feng to offend Wang Chao and get fired in consequence.
To Qin Feng, Xu Ruo Rou didn’t look like she was pretending. Then, he lowered his head to look at Pikachu. This brat was winking mischievously.
“Master, Pikachu said he’s completely fine. The reality is that Xu Ruo Rou was in a cold war with you recently, but she can’t take it anymore so she wants to make up with you. However, women are sensitive and she feels embarrassed, so she found this excuse.”
So this was the case!
Qin Feng had an expression of realization and was instantly tricked by Little Pig and Pikachu together.
How could he not be worried about Pikachu? He directly tossed this large rat onto the bed and arrived in front of Xu Ruo Rou. He lightly picked up her hand and brought her to sit on the side of the bed. He suddenly placed his hands on Xu Ruo Rou’s black stocking-clad thighs with a self-satisfied expression.
“I haven’t touched your thighs in a long time, but they still feel just as familiar!”
Xu Ruo Rou was slightly stunned. She immediately shifted her bottom, moved Qin Feng’s hand away, and looked at him with dissatisfaction: “Qin Feng, don’t be like this. Did you forget what I told you before? ...j-just quickly look and see how Pikachu is doing.”
Qin Feng was briefly stunned and immediately revealed a knowing smile.
Women, they were really sensitive. Weak women like Xu Ruo Rou were even more shy.
Since she used the pretense of Pikachu’s wounds to trick him, then he’d have to play along with her show until the end in order to help her preserve face.
“Ruo Rou, I’ve taken a look at Pikachu’s wounds and they really aren’t small!” Qin Feng took the initiative to sit down. He held Xu Ruo Rou’s soft and small hand with a serious expression.
Xu Ruo Rou was so shocked that she stood immediately and hugged the Pikachu on the bed tightly. Her tears fell with splatters.
“Qin Feng, I’m sorry! I didn’t take good care of Pikachu and I let him get hurt so badly… Qin Feng, you have a way of healing Pikachu right? Help him! He hasn’t awoken after falling.”
Qin Feng opened his mouth and felt like he wanted to swallow his fist!
Was there a need to act so earnestly? Wasn’t she just using the pretense of Pikachu’s injury to mend their relationship? Why is she crying, and crying so dramatically? Qin Feng no longer had the confidence to act with a movie queen leveled actress like Xu Ruo Rou.
“Qin Feng, why aren’t you saying anything?” Xu Ruo Rou cried and looked at Qin Feng reproachfully.
Qin Feng suddenly slapped his forehead and immediately understood.
