C20 They Were the Same
In the office, the blinds were pulled down to block the sunset. Yaan Chenghuai walked from behind his desk to the door. Before he could reach for the handle, the door opened.
The assistant looked at him nervously. His voice was trembling. "Hello, Director Yaan..."
"What is it?" Yaan Chenghuai was unhappy. He lowered his eyes.
The news that he had been in a bad mood recently had spread all over the company. The employees avoided him in time. They did not even dare to meet him directly unless they had no other choice.
The assistant braced himself and handed the documents over. "This, this is the monthly report that the Human Resources Department has just submitted."
As soon as he finished speaking, Yaan Chenghuai exploded. He slapped away the thick stack of documents. He was burning with anger. "Can't you see that I'm about to get off work? If it was something important, why did you wait until now to give it to me? " Are you trying to pick a fight with me on purpose? "
The documents scattered all over the floor. The assistant was so scared that he didn't even dare to breathe. He quickly waved his hand." It's not like that. Director Yaan, I am just a messenger."
"So? Do you want to say that this is none of your business? " Yaan Chenghuai suddenly curled his lips into a smile, yet his gaze was gloomy and cold.
The assistant shook his head. "Of course not..."
"Then do as I say and clean up this place. I'll go first." Yaan Chenghuai strode across the white paper and left.
His anger burned all the way to the door. His subordinate was talking about it, "Did he fight with his wife again..."
"Why did I hear that the two of them are divorced?"
"No wonder Director Yaan looked like he ate an explosive."
Yaan Chenghuai was annoyed by everyone, including his subordinates who had greeted him. He handed the car keys to his subordinates. "Since you are here, come and help me drive."
"Ah, okay..." The subordinate obediently took the keys and helped him drive.
On the way, Yaan Chenghuai was quiet. No matter how his subordinate flattered him, he was indifferent.
His mind was full of Gu Luanqing's matters. When he thought of that woman trying to escape his clutches, he could not forgive her!
"Bang!" Yaan Chenghuai suddenly slammed the window, scaring his subordinate. He looked through the rearview mirror and said, "Director Yaan, why do I feel that you are not in a good mood..."
"None of your business!" Yaan Chenghuai's eyes were cold. He clenched his fists tightly, as if he was clenching something in his palm. He wished he could crush it.
He could not get Gu Luanqing to vent his anger. Yaan Chenghuai simply vented his anger on his subordinates. "Whether you know how to drive or not has deviated from your direction. It's fine if you lose your life, but I still want mine."
The subordinate tremblingly wanted to step on the brakes, but because he was nervous, he accidentally stepped on the accelerator. The car drove further and further away from Yaan Chenghuai's residence.
Yaan Chenghuai was furious. He knocked on the back of his subordinate's head and shouted, "I told you to stop! I'll drive it myself."
The subordinate braked quickly. This time, he finally stepped on the right car.
He changed his role. The subordinate sat in the passenger seat. He looked nervously at the gloomy Yaan Chenghuai beside him. He rubbed his palms. "Director Yaan, this is not good, right?"
"If you don't want me to throw you at the intersection of the highway, shut up." Yaan Chenghuai's eyes did not deviate. He turned the steering wheel, turned the car around, and walked back.
His subordinate kept quiet, but it still could not eliminate Yaan Chenghuai's irritation.
Gu Luanqing actually dared to challenge his authority. He wanted to see how long she could hold on. He was afraid that she would come back and beg him to forgive her before long.
That scene would definitely make people happy.
Just imagining it, Yaan Chenghuai's gloomy face finally had a smile. But in an instant, he was in a daze and caused trouble for him.
Light and shadows overlapped on the car. He walked along the road that was seldom filled with cars. His hand that was holding the steering wheel unconsciously relaxed. He had never thought that someone would suddenly rush over and cross the road.
"Director Yaan!!" The subordinate screamed and woke Yaan Chenghuai up from his imagination. He quickly stepped on the brakes and held the wheel in front of the other party.
The gravity made Yaan Chenghuai and his subordinates fall back uncontrollably. The pain on their foreheads made Yaan Chenghuai frown. "Damn it, who doesn't have eyes when walking?"
Yaan Chenghuai took off his seat belt and rushed out of the car. He angrily walked to the child lying on the ground. "Do you want to die or do you want to blackmail me?"
The cold wind hurt his face, but it could not quell his anger.
The child probably thought that he was going to die, so he closed his eyes. In the end, he found that there was nothing wrong with him. It was just a scratch on his knee. He sat up and looked at the blood on his knee. He still cried. "Wow, you big bad guy. How dare you hit me!"
Yaan Chenghuai was most annoyed by the child's crying. He frowned and lowered his eyes. "What did you say? Who hit you? You were the one who wanted to rush over without a care for your life."
The child was furious. He rushed over to entangle Yaan Chenghuai. He tore and bit at Yaan Chenghuai. "I don't care. You hit me. You have to compensate me. Otherwise, I will sue you at the police station."
Kids nowadays are not as simple as they used to be.
Yaan Chenghuai was upset. He shook the child away. Before the child fell, he even tore off the cuff links on his right hand.
"I advise you not to mess with me. If you know what's good for you, get out of here immediately." Yaan Chenghuai turned around and was about to return to the car.
Who would have thought that the child would be so energetic? He rushed up and hugged Yaan Chenghuai's waist, "I don't care if you want to lose money. I don't care!"
"You..." Yaan Chenghuai was so angry that he gritted his teeth. He was about to push him away when he pulled the child away from his subordinate who had rushed out of the car.
The kid's hands and feet were empty. He was still baring his fangs and brandishing his claws. "Let go of me! Let go of me!"
Yaan Chenghuai sneered. He waved his fist and was about to hit the kid, but was stopped by his subordinate.
The subordinate carried the child to the side and whispered into his ear, "Director Yaan, have you forgotten? This is the son of the driver who caused the accident back then. We can't afford to offend him."
One sentence successfully reminded Yaan Chenghuai of his past. It also poured a bucket of cold water on him to calm him down.
"How did you know about this?" Yaan Chenghuai was the first to question the people around him.
The subordinate rubbed his palms. "Did you forget? "I used to work for Chief Yan. You provided compensation to his family by month. I saw his family when I went to deliver the money. It was this child." Chief Yan was the subordinate who helped him deal with that matter back then.
Yaan Chenghuai suddenly remembered. He could not help but feel relaxed. Instead, his heart sank.
This meant that there was another person who knew about that matter back then.
In order to settle this matter, Yaan Chenghuai still compromised in the end. He unwillingly wrote a large amount of checks before sending the child away.
Back in the car, his subordinate took the initiative to take on the task of driving. Yaan Chenghuai still acted as his boss and leisurely sat in the back seat.
He turned his head to look out the window. The mottled light and shadow hit his bloodless handsome face, but it did not make him look friendlier.
Yaan Chenghuai suddenly opened his mouth. His eyes were cold. "Now we are on the same boat."
"I know, I know." The subordinate smiled obsequiously and took the initiative to introduce himself. "My surname is Xu. Just call me Little Xu. No matter what happens in the future, just come to me."
Yaan Chenghuai smiled, his entire body shaking.
