Chapter 521 Overwork
“Everyone has his or her own hobbies, right? Even if the propositions are irregular, we can guess through his performance, and we can roughly see a person’s likes and dislikes. Although we may not be quite sure, from the foot we may judge of Hercules. With a little more consideration, we can be a little certain.”
“Make every possible effort, or we really haven’t got a clue at all now, and there’s no use crawling around like a cat on hot bricks. Anyway, this is a direction, and we can follow this. What do you think?”
Gu Yan was like a bamboo tube to pour beans, saying a lot of words in one breath, and her mouth was dry. Then she picked up the coffee cup on the table and took a sip of it. She kept staring at Jiang Jingcheng, waiting to get his response.
Jiang Jingcheng’s mind seemed to wander very far. In fact, he was thinking over Gu Yan’s words. Of course, people always had their own likes and dislikes. Instead of worrying, it was better to follow what Gu Yan said. Even if the last trace could not be found, they could also take it as a reference to the work of the predecessors, and there was always something worth learning.
“You’re right. Let’s do it. Print it out and appreciate it. We need to finish it as soon as possible, or you will squeeze me when you get off work!” When Jiang Jingcheng looked at Gu Yan who was staring at himself like a child and waiting for praise, he couldn’t help laughing.
Gu Yan looked out of the window. The sun was gradually going down. Thinking that she would work late today, she intended to treat Jiang Jingcheng a good meal, aiming to keep him quiet.
“Go. Go out now. I’ll treat you. When you’re full, don’t talk nonsense, and get on with your work!” Gu Yan got up and picked up her coat and bag. Then she pushed Jiang Jingcheng out of the office.
“You want to satisfy me with just one meal? Am I so easy to get satisfied? At least 2 meals!” Jiang Jingcheng went out easily, but his words showed that he was unsatisfied.
“Come on. Don’t say these unreasonable words when you get benefits!”
The farther they went, the calmer the office became.
On the other side, Mo Yichen was driving carefully. When he thought that he was going to see Gu Yan soon, the joy was expressed through the expression on his face.
He didn’t know that Gu Yan was tied up in her work.
Before Mo Yichen got home, he firstly went to the supermarket near his home and bought some daily food. He knew Gu Yan well. He was not at home, so she certainly didn’t take a good meal. Since he went home, he wanted to make a good meal for her. So, he moved faster and took a lot of food to fill up the shopping cart.
When backing home in Annan City, Mo Yichen was surprised. The room was empty. He shouted twice, but only heard the echo. Mo Yichen frowned. This woman, who was not at home at this time, must be working overtime. Once he was not at home, she had no worries. She didn’t even eat on time. She was so presumptuous and didn’t treat her body seriously.
He got a little angry. But the most common emotion was his love for Gu Yan. He knew that he had the ability to let her have no worries about food and clothing, but she was still working so hard. He sighed that there was nothing to be done with her.
After changing his shoes, he went to the kitchen to put on the apron and prepared dinner for Gu Yan. He wanted to cook some fried dishes that he was already good at, but he didn’t know when she could get off work. When she came back, the food was cold, so he opened the menu and cooked the soup according to the steps.
Mo Yichen was in a hurry, and Gu Yan was not relaxed either.
Gu Yan and Jiang Jingcheng put the works sorted out over the years in 2 piles. One was the works that won the prize, and the other was the one that was eliminated. They went through one by one first, and finally looked at each one carefully.
Both of them were very serious. They communicated with each other from time to time. The coffee cup at the table was filled up over and over.
They sat opposite at the desk and felt no sleepy at all, as if they were full of beans.
Gu Yan instinctively disliked those eliminated works after seeing them, but she couldn’t tell why. It seemed that these works were not suitable for ranking. Although the whole design was neat and standardized, and there was nothing wrong with it. Her intuition told her that they didn’t deserve the prize.
On the other side, Gu Yan felt vaguely that there was something she was familiar with in these works, but she couldn’t say what it was. She stared at the design draft in front of her, as if to make a hole in it.
Seeing that she stared blankly, Jiang Jingcheng thought she was tired. He regretted that he didn’t plan the time well. He stayed up so late with Gu Yan. He looked up at the wall clock and found that it was already early 10 o’clock. It was not decent to stay up any longer.
“Boss, it’s 10 o’clock. Should I go home? If I continue to work, I will be overloaded. If I die suddenly, you will be really famous.” Jiang Jingcheng saw her staring blankly, so he kept a low profile, and said these words in a flat voice.
Gu Yan’s musings were interrupted. She looked up and saw it was so late. If Mo Yichen knew, she must be cursed badly by him. She instinctively came up with this idea. Then she thought for a while and laughed out. What was wrong with her? She thought of him no matter what happened.
“Let’s get off work. I have some ideas. I’m not in a hurry for a while. If you are afraid of working overtime one day, I can’t order you in the future!”
Gu Yan got up and moved her body. She went to the window and looked at the world with bright lights. Many people’s night life was just beginning, but she instinctively rejected and didn’t want to go back to the cold house without Mo Yichen.
“Still don’t want to go? Is there something precious in this office that makes you grow up here?” Jiang Jingcheng went back to his office and put away his things. He found that Gu Yan was still staring blankly outside the window. He came into the room and pretended to walk around, as if he was really looking for a something precious.
Gu Yan was interrupted by him, and her thoughts were all in a mess. “Go quickly, or you will say that I squeeze you. You’re so vexatious. Anyway, you are reasonable, and I can’t convince you.”
“I feel uneasy that you go home by yourself. Female drivers are all potential killers. I have to be a good man to the end and send you home. Otherwise, I will worry about you. It’s better to send you home by myself, and I will feel more at ease.” Since she had been working all day, Jiang Jingcheng pretended to say a simple joke to relieve her fatigue.
“It’s not proper to bother Agent Jiang. I’ll take her home now.”
Gu Yan just wanted to refute Jiang Jingcheng, but a voice sounded. She was greatly surprised. She looked back and found a man with a gloomy face standing at the door. It was Mo Yichen.
Looking at his face, Gu Yan thought something bad would happen and didn’t speak. She just told Jiang Jingcheng to go first.
Her real boyfriend was here. What else could Jiang Jingcheng do for? He nodded to Mo Yichen and left the office with bitterness and sadness.
