Looking at the half-drunk Chen Xing, I wanted to strangle him, but held back and said into the phone, “I’ve got one more day tomorrow, I’ll try to get my work done in the morning and spend the day shopping with you!”
“Oh come on, I’ll wait for tomorrow!” Woody spoke up and hung up on me with a big grin.
The taxi stopped in front of the hotel, paid and helped Chen Xing out of the car, I looked up at the dozen of steps in front of me and my head hurt even more.
The design of this five-star hotel was too odd, why did it have to have so many flights of steps?
I grumbled and complained, holding Chen Xing up, I still helped him climb step by step, luckily I wore flat shoes and it wasn’t that strenuous.
Halfway up the stairs, my mobile phone rang in my bag, and I reached for it.
Out of instinct, I pushed him away, but forgot that we were now on the stairs and tragedy struck.
Chen Xing rolled straight down the stairs like a bun, quite perfectly.
I was so shocked that I froze for half a second, and it was only when a security guard went to help him that I reacted and hurriedly said, “Take him to the hospital!”
Such a drunkard, and I don’t know if he had fallen.
With the help of the security guards, getting Chen Xing to the hospital went a lot smoother. In the hospital, Chen Xing was all checked out, and it was only his head that had fallen over, the rest of him was fine, and he would be fine after a few days of hospitalization for observation.
After tossing and turning for most of the day, Chen Xing still hadn’t sobered up, and the doctor couldn’t be sure if there was anything wrong with his brain, so he could only wait until he woke up tomorrow morning.
After dressing his fall, I had to stay in the hospital because I had to be guarded.
It was early in the morning when Muzi called and I was almost asleep in a chair in the hospital corridor.
When I picked up the phone, she spoke drunkenly on the other end of the line, “Shen Shu, are you going out shopping?”
Looking at the time, it was already early in the morning, I yawned, sat up straight and said, “Muzi, where are you?”
She was afraid she hadn’t gone for another drink by herself.
“South River Avenue, come and hang out together!” By the sound of her voice, she had had too much to drink.
She came to this strange city alone and still managed to go drinking, I was also convinced, Chen Xing was still on infusion, I couldn’t leave now.
After thinking about it, I reassured Muzi on the other end of the phone and hung up, I called Cheng Junyu again.
“Hello!” The phone was picked up and it sounded as if I had been woken up.
I said a little apologetically, “Dr. Cheng, can I ask you a favour? My friend is at South River Avenue, she’s drunk and I can’t get away here now, can you pick her up for me?”
The person on the other end was silent for a moment and said, “Well, give me her number, I’ll come over later!”
I hung up the phone and sent Muzi’s phone number to Cheng Junyu, who hadn’t slept much during the day.
I didn’t get much sleep during the day. I spent the rest of the night resting in the hospital corridor.
The next day.
Chen Xing woke up from his hospital bed and asked me, quite inexplicably, “How come I’m in the hospital?”
I was a little embarrassed and smiled, “Because you drank too much last night and fell, so I brought you to the hospital.”
He frowned, “I fell on my own?”
I nodded my head, my heart weak as hell.
He suddenly grinned out and looked at me, “Shen Shu, I clearly remember that you pushed me down, if you did it, you did it, what are you being vain about?”
What could I say when he was so blunt, looking to him and saying, “Who told you to drink so much for nothing?” Glaring at him, I said, “Use your head, what’s the problem, and if there’s nothing wrong, you can leave the hospital.”
The trip was already short, and with him delaying it so much, the work was delayed back.
Luckily the doctor came to check on him and he was fine, a change of medication and he was discharged, but the man was thick-skinned and dragged me out of the hospital to hold me responsible.
I didn’t have time to pay attention to him, so I took him to the office and told Wang Hui directly about the misappropriation of public funds that Chen Xing had discovered yesterday.
Wang Hui also seemed surprised, so he completely transferred the finance department and all departments.
This was not a big deal, Chen Xing made the final report, I checked the operation of the branch, listened to a few responsible for the part of the elaboration, there is no big problem will be ready to go back to Jiangcheng.
But Chen Xing has a lot of problems, he thinks he has fallen on his head and needs to eat something good to make up for it, so he took me to the biggest food city in A City.
The phone rang for half a day before it was answered, and the voice on the other end was confused, “Hello!”
I looked at the time, it was already noon and I was still sleeping, “Are you awake yet? Get up and go to the food court!”
“Yes!” Hearing the voice is not awake, Muzi buzzed, “You go shopping first, I will come over later ……”
I was just about to hang up and send her the address when I heard a low male voice on the other end, “Wake up!”
This guy was that drunk last night and still managed to find a man?
“What’s the situation with Miss Li?” I couldn’t help but open my mouth into the phone.
“Hang up first, we’ll talk later!” On the other end of the phone, Muzi hung up in a hurry.
Didn’t I ask Cheng Junyu to send her back last night? This situation, she can still find a man?
Is it Cheng Junyu?
I had a brainstorm and couldn’t help but call Cheng Junyu, and it took half a day for him to pick up, “Shen Shu!”
He spoke, his voice was clear, not like he had just woken up, I paused and said, “What are you doing?”
The other end of the line paused and said, “Driving, what’s up?”
Well, in that case, it was impossible to be with Kimiko.
I smiled and said, “We’re done here, do you have something to do this afternoon? If not, come out for dinner together.”
“Yeah, sure!” He agreed quite readily.
After hanging up the phone, Cheng Xing said with a gangly look on his face, “Shen Shu, are you funny?”
I gave him a puzzled look, “What’s wrong?”
He didn’t like it, “You’re still being condescended to by hanging out with me alone? A few phone calls and a few dates with all your pals.”
Ignoring him, I looked at the bustle of city A and sighed, “City A is developing quite fast.”
My eyes fell on the twin dachas in the busy district and looked at Chen Xing and said, “This office building is so tall!”
He knew I was changing the subject and said, “Fu’s office is no shorter than this, and it’s not like it’s a company office building.”
I was a little curious, “You knew that?”
He hmmed and said faintly, “My mum and another tech boss bought this place and she got a bond company in it.”
So, thinking about Ivana Lin, I did admire the woman a little, she was as wealthy as she was beautiful.
Thinking of her mentioning that she seemed to have a daughter over dinner at the Pearly Gates earlier, I couldn’t help but look at Chen Xing and gossip, “You have a sister?”
