Chapter 11: My Heart Beats For You (II)
Shang Ke stood in front of a mirror, full of energy. He wore a light colored shirt and a black suit without a tie, he appeared very leisure yet steady. Jiang Yumo’s appearance was eighty to ninety percent similar to his. Their statures were only slightly different with Jiang Yumo’s features being more delicate. Shang Ke’s were a bit more mature.
Today was the first day he was going to Jian Chenfeng’s company to work. Shang Ke rose his spirit to one hundred and twenty percent. Before that, he had specially gathered some information on Jian Chenfeng. At eighteen, he participated in company affairs, at twenty=three, he started to formally take over simpler things and in five years promoted the company’s result by seventy percent, showcasing his astonishing business talent. He was mature, steady, strict, firm, astute, competent…in short, he is wonderful in all areas and a seasoned gold bachelor within the circle.
In the ordinary course of events, this person should have many beautiful women waiting on him, but so far he didn’t have any sex scandals. His life and emotions are like a monk that is undergoing ascetic practice, free of worldly desires. Of course, there was also the possibility that it was kept confidential.
However, Shang Ke’s first formal meeting with the rumored perfect man wasn’t wonderful at all.
“Jiang Yumo, since you are interning at my company, then lay down your great young master self and properly do your work. I will not give you any preferential treatment. If I discover you slacking off or trying to evade work, then you can get out of here immediately.” Jian Chenfeng used a sharp gaze to size him up from head to toe. “You will first be my assistant, Secretary Cui will tell you what you should do. Start learning from the easiest stuff, if you have any questions, ask him. Alright, you can leave.”
Shang Ke had not even had the chance to say a word when he had been made to leave with no trace of politeness from Jian Chenfeng. His eyes and tone were full of disdain, like the fact that he had come to work at his company was a stain to his company’s image.
Shang Ke took a deep breath, calming himself as much as possible. Jian Chenfeng was like this to him because he was going after his younger sister, so it was only natural he would be a good deal fussier. He should express his understanding.
When Secretary Cui saw that Shang Ke didn’t get angry, he was rather amazed in his heart. Rumors say that this young master’s temper isn’t too good, but even in the face of such a berating he had endured it. He really makes someone have a whole new level of respect for him. He originally thought the other would pull a long face and leave, Director Jian was probably planning that too…
Secretary Cui arranged a work desk for Shang Ke, then handed him a pile of documents, “You can organize this material first today and understand the situation here better.”
“Alright, thank you Secretary Cui.” Shang Ke’s anger came quickly but also left quickly, it had only lasted a few seconds before he was back to being sunny.
Secretary Cui’s impression of Shang Ke was pretty good, so he just said a few warnings before going back to his own work.
Shang Ke sat down and picked up the information to skim over.
“Eh?” A flash of surprise went through his eyes, it was not that there was a problem with the information, its because he had noticed his memory became stronger. This thick pile of information only needed him to look over it once for him to remember it. When he closed his eyes, he could even accurately repeat back ninety-five percent of the content, the remaining five percent was some useless stuff he didn’t bother reading carefully.
His memory was pretty good in the first place, but after the System’s promotion, it reached an even higher retentive degree.
A smile floated up on his lips, his mood very bright.
But at this moment, the telephone on the table rang. Shang Ke looked up and around only to find that Secretary Cui was not in the office, so he picked up the phone. Immediately, he heard Jian Chenfeng’s evil voice, “Secretary Cui, one cup of coffee.” he immediately hung up after he said that line.
Shang Ke rolled his eyes, got up to the tea room, took out the coffee and started to make it.
When Shang Ke took out the coffee, he had just so happen to meet Secretary Cui who had returned from the bathroom. As such, he handed the coffee over to him, “Secretary Cui, the Director called you just now to bring him a cup of coffee.
Secretary Cui took the coffee, hesitated for a moment, but still said a thanks in reply and went to deliver the coffee.
Shang Ke knew what he was hesitating about, wasn’t he afraid that he made the coffee too disgusting and anger Jian Chenfeng?
Shang Ke was too lazy to lower himself to the level of these superficial humans. As an outstanding man that specializes in challenging death, what else in the world can frighten him?
At noon, Secretary Cui called for Shang Ke to go to the dining hall with him for a meal.
Shang Ke asked, “What about Director Jian?”
“If Director Jian didn’t order order for it, I usually just bring a boxed lunch lunch for him.” Secretar Cui replied, “Every month, he would eat in the company about half of the time.”
The two carried their trays and found an empty table to sit at. Secretary Cui introduced the dining hall and other co-workers to Shang Ke as they ate.
“Hey! Secretary Cui, who is this handsome guy?” A fashionable business woman walked over, passionately greeting the two.
“Hello, Laura, my name is Jiang Yumo.” Shang ke stood up and politely extended his hand, smiling, “It’s a pleasure to meet you.”
“Hello, it is also my pleasure to meet you. If we have some time one day, want to go out and eat together?” Laura’s personality was very extroverted, but it did not make one dislike her.
“I would be very willing.”
After Laura left, Secretary Cui smiled, “I was worried that you wouldn’t be able to adapt, but it looks like my worry was completely unnecessary.”
“How could it be?” Shang Ke continued, “Don’t you know that I am just a person that looks impressive but is worthless?”
This was the first time Secretary Cui heard someone so confidently say they are impressive in looks but worthless. This Young Master Jiang was a lot more adorable than he imagined.”
But his expression immediately froze, he suddenly recalled that he hasn’t introduced Laura to him right? How did he know her?
So he asked that question.
Shang Ke replied, “Laura is a business manager, she has already worked at this company for ten years. This information is all recorded in the computer.”
“The headquarter staff recorded in the computer has five hundred plus people.”
“Laura is a beauty, so my impression of her is deeper.”
Secretary Cui looked at him doubtfully. Laura was a beauty, that was true. But she was already over fourty, although she had taken care of her looks well, it was not beautiful to the point people would remember her forever. Or was it that Second Young Master Jiang was more interested in mature woman who were double his age?
“Are you not going to eat anymore?” When Secretary Cui saw that a good half of Shang Ke’s food was left, he couldn’t help but ask.”
“I’m not hungry today.” Ever since he had trained his cooking skills in the hundred training space for ten years, his pickiness for the food went up. As long as he wasn’t particularly hungry, he wouldn’t eat food that did not satisfy his taste buds.
In fact, the company’s dining hall food was actually pretty good, but it is after all, communal feeding. It’s hard to avoid too little salt and too much oil making the food crude, lacking a bit of care.
After he ate it that one time, he decided to make his own lunchbox from tomorrow on.
That afternoon when Secretary Cui delivered coffee to Jian Chenfeng, he asked, “How is he?”
“His temper is good, adapts fast and his communication ability is pretty good.” Secretary Cui spoke practically and realistically.
“Oh?” Jian Chenfeng raised an eyebrow, he clearly wasn’t too convinced.
Secretary Cui continued, “Although I have not interacted with him long, I think that he is an entirely different person from the rumors. Director Jian, perhaps we can think about letting him and Miss Jian look around.”
“There’s no need to even think about it.” Jian Chenfeng picked up his coffee and drank it, his brows then wrinkled. He said, “I had wanted to praise you for your improvement in making coffee this morning, but why is it back to normal in the afternoon?”
Secretary Cui was first stunned, then he immediately said, “I’m sorry, Director Jian. The coffee this morning was made by Young Master Jiang.”
“Him?” Jian Chenfeng fell silent, then decided, “That is probably his only merit. My coffee in the future will all be made by him.”
Director Jian, in your eyes, is Young Master Jian’s only value is to make coffee for you?
Secretary Cui suddenly felt sympathy for Jiang Yumo…
The next day, Shang Ke arrived on time at the company. Secretary Cui just so happened to be behind him. When he saw the other familiarly greet everyone, his whole face was stunned: This guy actually really did remember all the information on the staff?!
The average person who stay here even for ten days to half a month may not necessarily be able to accurately call out their co-workers name. But this guy only used one day, perhaps even just half a day and was thoroughly familiar with the environment here. This kind of memory and adaptability really makes one speechless.
The outside world’s evaluation of Jiang Donglin and Jiang Yumo was different to the extreme, one is a proud son of heaven while the other people couldn’t bear to bring up. But nowadays, it looks like Second Young Master Jiang was just hiding his sharp point.
With curiosity budding in his heart, Secretary Cui started to pay attention to him more. Then, he noticed that the work he gave him would be quickly completed by him. If he didn’t ask, then he would take the initiative to tell him. His behavior was inline with society while his bearing was relaxed and at ease, like he was not at work but enjoying the period of time.
At noon, Secretary Cui called for him to eat lunch, but he took out his own lunchbox, “I brought my own lunch, you can go.”
“Oh?” Your family’s chef prepared it for you?” Secretary Cui looked at the lunchbox on Shang Ke’s table, the color and luster were fresh and decoratively delicately. He couldn’t help but praise, “It looks really good.”
Shang Ke smiled, “I live alone now.” To get to work more conveniently, he rented a suite at an apartment, a two room elaborate suite.
Secretary Cui reacted a few moments later, flabbergasted, he said, “You mean, this lunchbox was made by you?”
Second Young Master Jiang knew how to cook?
Shang Ke nodded and got up to enter the tea room and placed his lunchbox into the microwave to heat it up.
Secretary Cui felt that this Second Young Master was always refreshing his knowledge of him.
Before he got off of work, Secretary Cui gave Jian Chenfeng the summary of today’s work and blurted out his discovery.
Jian Chenfeng listened to him speak then pondered for a bit before saying, “From tomorrow on, my lunch will also be in charged by him.”
“That…wouldn’t be too good?”
Jian Chenfeng coldly said, “If he wants to pursue my younger sister, he needs to pass me first.”
Director Jian, are you really not using your authority for private interest….
When he got the news from Secretary Cui that Lord Boss was promoting him from coffee little bro to dedicated cook, Shang Ke did not feel bad. Rather, he was quite happy. It was because he had received the result of the matching from the hospital, it confirmed he matched.
This also meant the next step of his plans could be carried out.
With his mood much better, the next day Shang Ke got up, he made Jian Chenfeng an exceedingly large and gorgeous worshipping lunchbox.
When Jian Chenfeng opened the lunchbox, he was almost blinded by the artistic flavor and royal atmosphere design.
This made his deeply know, this Second Young Master Jiang, in order to pursue his younger sister, his flattering of him, this future older-brother-in-law had reached such a savage stage…
However, the food he made really was delicious beyond his expectation.
Even Jian Chenfeng who had tried all sorts of delicious food had no choice but to admit, this guy’s cooking skills has already reached great master level.
