COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE, VOLUME 4 - Season 7 Episode 15
It could be seen that this company’s employees loved gossip way too much. The entire secretarial department was still in their office pretending to be working. Even the ones who left early for lunch ran back to their office and wait to see the Empress of their boss.
“You have quite diligent employees,” stated Raelle.
Shui Xian was all too well familiar with his own people and couldn’t even take this compliment without going against his conscious. It could be seen why they were all here. But he was in a good mood so he didn’t bother with their tricks at all.
“Cloe has something to discuss with you,” said Raelle as she saw Cloe waiting with Ma Jin. She stepped aside and said to Cloe, “You can take your time.”
Cloe nodded and turned to Shui Xian, “Can I have a minute?”
“Sure,” agreed Shui Xian and stepped aside to talk to her. “What is this about?”
“It’s about Cui Xukun,” answered Cloe.
Shui Xian frowned when he heard that reply. He wasn’t really interested in listening to his ex-friend. But considering their past friendship, he decided to put his feelings aside and asked, “What about him?”
“He asked me to tell you that he wants to meet you,” said Cloe. “I’m not sure what problems you both have but I know he has something important to talk about with you.”
Shui Xian thought about it for a minute before nodding his head, “Alright. I’ll meet him because you’re the one asking.”
Cloe smiled at him, “You’re giving me face? Or it’s because I’m your wife’s employee?”
“It’s all the same,” was Shui Xian’s reply. “Raelle values you a lot. I have to make sure I value you as well.”
“Well, then I should thank my Chief,” said Cloe jokingly.
“Not really. You made your own place in her life with your hard work. So, however she treats you, you deserve it.”
Cloe felt really good listening to those words. “Thank you.”
Shui Xian waved her off casually, “You can just contact Ma Jin to range the appointment. Oh, but make sure it doesn’t come after my working hours.”
Cloe chuckled, “I know. I know. After working hours is the time reserved for your wife.”
“That’s right,” said Shui Xian happily. “Is that all?”
“Yes,” she told him.
“Tsk. Why bother coming all the way for this little matter? You could have just called. I’d still listen to you.”
“But I can’t possibly take my Chief’s husband so causally,” was her response which made them both chuckle.
While Raelle was waiting for Shui Xian and Cloe, Ma Jin stood behind her attentively. He didn’t even dare breathe loudly in her presence. His boss’s wife was a lot more intimidating than his own boss. He felt the air pressure lowering in her presence. Or maybe, he was the only one who felt like this. He couldn’t possibly be sure about such a thing.
“You must be President Raelle!”
Raelle looked at the woman who strutted over to her side with that looking like an absolute angel in her white attire. She looked like a gentle and elegant lady like a spring breeze. Even her voice was sweet. However, that smile on her face was so pretentious that Raelle didn’t like it.
Her ability to see through people was no joke. She could see the malice in those eyes without even trying. It was just too obvious. It seemed the woman in front of her wasn’t even trying to hide her displeasure.
But Raelle was certain this was the first time she was seeing this woman so where did this hostility come from?
Ruan Meilin extended her hand towards Raelle when she noticed that Raelle didn’t react to her earlier words, “Hi, I’m Vice President, Ruan Meilin.”
Raelle didn’t take her hand but replied to her greeting, “Hello, I’m Raelle Xiang!”
But that’s all the response Ruan Meilin got from Raelle who wasn’t interested in continuing this discussion at all. Ruan Meilin stared at her hatefully when Raelle didn’t even take her hand. She felt like Raelle was intentionally embarrassing her just because Raelle’s status was higher than her own. It seemed this President Raelle looked down on people just as the rumors said.
Huh! What a bitch!
Raelle had no interest in how Ruan Meilin looked at her. It didn’t concern her at all. But it seemed Ruan Meilin wasn’t taking the hint.
“I hope the media reports didn’t affect President Raelle,” said Ruan Meilin keeping up her smile. “The media is just like that. Gossiping about everything. Just because President Raelle and Master Xian met on the red carpet, they really took the gossip too far.”
With these comments, she indeed managed to make Raelle glance at her. Now, Raelle was actually waiting for where this conversation was going because anyone in their right mind would know that the media wouldn’t gossip about her so casually.
Ruan Meilin looked distressed as she added, “I also faced a phase like that. Everyone said I’m Master Xian’s girlfriend and that’s why he’d been looking after me for all these years. I can’t help it. It’s true that Brother Xian really cared about me for all these years but… I don’t know where the rumors come from. It’s really distressing how these gossips even affect our work life.”
That was all the thought that came to Raelle’s mind when she heard this self-directed monologue. She really wanted to ask this woman where she looked like a woman with a hole in her brain to her? Why would she say such brainless things and expect her to react to it all as well?
If you’re expecting a reaction from Raelle Xiang, you’re like asking peach blossoms to bloom in winter. That was certainly not possible.
Raelle watched Shui Xian coming over and said to Ruan Meilin, “You’re an interesting person, Miss Vice President. Maybe you should review your career choices. Being a storyteller or an actress might suit you better.” She took a step ahead but turned to add, “Oh, and good luck pursuing your Brother Xian. If you really became his girlfriend, I’ll send you a big and exciting gift.”
Ma Jin who was standing behind was speechless right now.
