COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE, VOLUME 4 - Season 7 Episode 10
“…I’ve adjusted your schedule as you wanted it. So, the meeting at 11 is pushed back to 10,” Cloe continued to report Raelle’s itinerary without hearing any reply from the other party. But since it was normal, Cloe didn’t pay attention and continued to look at the iPad in her hands. 99% percent of the time, Raelle would not disturb people when they were talking. That’s why her silence, for now, was common.
Once she finished reporting the itinerary, she looked up at Raelle whose eyes were fixed on the screen before her. She didn’t say anything so Cloe went on, “Also, I have made all the arrangements according to your requests.” She still didn’t get a reply and her brows knitted up in confusion. She stared at Raelle’s face and called out, “Chief!”
Still, no answer shocked Cloe. Only then did she notice that Raelle was just looking at the screen before her but her eyes had no movement. She looked like… She was in a daze?
This conjecture appalled Cloe who had never seen her boss lost in thoughts like this. She shuddered for some reason and decided to just break Raelle’s reverie. She couldn’t bear to do it but she had to.
She clicked her fingers together right in front of Raelle’s eyes and the latter snapped out of her daze. Her eyes instantly shifted to Cloe’s figure and asked, “What?”
Cloe took a deep breath and repeated everything she just said. Raelle nodded her head and said, “Okay, I got it.”
“Chief, are you okay?” asked Cloe after a moment of silence.
Raelle looked at her and replied, “I am. Why?”
“You sure you don’t need me to call a doctor?”
“Why would I need a doctor?” asked Raelle.
“Miss Mu Chenyan had instructed that if I see any abnormality in you, I’m supposed to call her or look for a doctor,” said Cloe.
“I know you’re a spy planted beside me but you don’t need to be so blatant about it,” said Raelle making Cloe purse her lips. She really wanted to refute those words but she couldn’t do it actually. Because when she was first selected, even she felt like she was recruited as a spy. “And what’s the abnormality that you saw?”
“You were in a daze,” Cloe pointed out.
“You spent hours daydreaming in your working hours, should I also send you to a doctor?”
Cloe seemed not so happy to hear that but she still defended herself, “I don’t spend hours. But even if I do, I’m a dreamer. It’s normal for me to do so. You… You have never been a dreamer. Your feet are always on the ground. You’re a practical and realistic person who dislikes wasting time more than anything. So, it’s truly an abnormality to me when you’re wasting your time daydreaming.”
Raelle didn’t argue with her but instead agreed with her which shocked Cloe. “You’re right. I am really wasting time. But why am I doing it?”
“How would I know that?” questioned Cloe. “Maybe you can tell me what’s on your mind and then we can figure it out together?”
Raelle pushed a strand of hair away from her forehead saying, “I don’t know what’s on my mind.”
Cloe gasped in horror, “Maybe I should really contact the doctor.”
“Don’t overreact like Yanyan,” said Raelle.
Cloe smiled sheepishly, “Maybe I’m influenced by her after all these years.”
“How come you didn’t grow your IQ by staying so close to me after so many years? But you certainly got influenced by my Yanyan?”
Cloe felt like that was a jab straight to her heart and she looked aggrieved, “Chief, you can’t say that. Your influence on me is the greatest! You just don’t realize it.”
“If you’re influenced by me, why would you be wasting time here blabbering so much nonsense?”
Cloe gaped at her in disbelief and again felt like that was another jab right to her heart! What the…!
She had to take several deep breaths to stabilize her mood before she smiled at Raelle politely.
“Put your smile away,” she heard Raelle’s words and her smile vanished instantly.
“I really wonder how did I manage to survive so many years with you?” Cloe was indeed wondering that. She was really unable to understand sometimes why she actually admired this woman and why she even made her an idol in her heart? It was truly infuriating to be around her! “I’m so happy to see you like this, Chief.”
“Have you lost your mind?” asked Raelle. “Do you want me to put up a prize money notice? Maybe some kind soul would find your brain lying in the trash and think about returning it for the sake of money? After all, your brain can’t possibly be more precious than money!”
Cloe hit her chest and repeated to herself to stay calm but suddenly she laughed out loud. No, she seriously laughed so much that her body convulsed. She couldn’t help it right now. She wiped the tears from the corner of her eyes and looked at Raelle with a broad grin. “Chief, I have been wondering how are you so easygoing lately. I was suspicious that you’ve changed. But today, you put my heart and soul at ease! I’m so glad to see you’re back. No, I should say, you’re still you. You can’t believe how much I missed that infuriating mouth of yours. Even I can’t seem to believe that I missed that infuriating mouth of yours. But I’m happy that everything is normal.”
“Cloe,” Raelle called out.
“Yes?” replied Cloe like a good employee.
“If you’re short on money, I can lend it to you. No, I’ll just give it to you. But you better go for a brain scan with a good doctor as soon as possible. Your condition is worsening.”
Cloe’s lips twitched but she was actually very happy right now to see her Chief back in her element so she didn’t take anything to heart. She was too used to this Raelle Xiang who would make you want to beat her up!
But of course, you wouldn’t dare to do so!
