“My wife?” Qin Chu was surprised.
Assistant Yang nodded and repeated Director Ning’s words to Qin Chu…
Qin Chu knew that Ning Dan wasn’t bold enough to imitate his wife’s words, just to swindle 80,000 yuan.
So, he silently picked up his pen and signed the receipts.
Assistant Yang was shown again just how important the young madam was to the president…
Such willfulness! With the nod of her head, the young madam allowed the Film and Television Company to spend 80,000 yuan on a night’s party.
Immediately after, the director of the Finance Department came into the office with a receipt. “Sir, this is the receipt from Ni Yang and Mo Xue’er’s agents. Young Madam promised them dinner and a place to stay for yesterday.”
Qin Chu took the receipt and saw the total. It was another 100,000 yuan…
Without a word, he signed it quickly…
It seemed like his wife was already a professional husband-defrauder.
She was truly generous towards his employees…
After everyone left, Qin Chu took out his cell phone and video called Huo Mian.
She had just put on her white lab coat and was about to on rounds.
“Hello, Mr. Qin.”
“Honey, you’re truly generous… Thanks to your approval yesterday, I just signed 180,000 yuan away in receipts.”
“180,000… ugh, that’s really a lot. These people are too much.”
“So, I’m planning to deduct the money from your allowance this month.”
“Ugh… nooo… I did it for the company! We must keep our people happy. They’re water and we’re the boat. They can keep us afloat but they can also sink us. I’m sure you understand this logic.”
“I only know that water not only floats boats but can also make congee,” Qin Chu said with a serious face.
“Haha… Honey, don’t make me laugh so early in the morning. Okay, I’ll talk to you later, I need to do rounds.”
With that, Huo Mian hung up the video call…
Immediately after, Qin Chu received a red pocket on WeChat.
If he remembered correctly, it was the first time his wife sent him a red pocket.
Although it was only 52.1 yuan, the meaning of the 521 (TL: means ‘I love you’ in Chinese) meant more to him than anything.
“Mua, Honey. 180,000 yuan is nothing.”
“…Using 50 yuan to subside the 180,000 yuan. You really are as clever as ever, Honey.”
After rounds, Huo Mian went back to her office to organize the hospital database.
There was a sudden knock on her office door.
“Please come in.”
“Why are you here?” At the sight of the visitor, Huo Mian couldn’t help but feel anxious.
Isn’t she Su Yu’s mother? The first lady of C City. Apparently, her status was even higher than the mayor’s wife.
“Young lady, do you have some time to talk?”
“Um… please sit down first.” Unsure of what to do with herself, Huo Mian stood up and poured Mrs. Su a cup of tea.
“Mrs. Su, did you need something from me?” Huo Mian was anxious.
Due to the precedent of Mrs. Qin, Huo Mian was a little scared of women who were the same age as her mother.
“Don’t be afraid, I was just passing by… Oh right, I bought you some snacks.”
Then Mrs. Su handed Huo Mian a food box. Huo Mian glanced at the box and saw an abundance of exquisite pastries.
“Auntie, if you need something, please just tell me.”
“I really don’t need anything. I just wanted to visit you.”
“Auntie… Su Yu and I… we didn’t…?” Huo Mian began to explain.
“I know. After all, you’re married. Not bad, he’s the young president of GK,” Mrs. Su chuckled.
“You know about it?”
“Yes. I didn’t know before, but after I went home, I found out after coming across some news.”
“Oh, oh…” Since Mrs. Su already knew, Huo Mian didn’t have to explain further.
“Is the work at the hospital tiring?”
“It’s not, I’m used to it.”
“That’s nice. Some people only go after jobs for the prestige and money, but if you choose a career you like and your values are reflected, you will excel.”
“Thank you, Mrs. Qin.” Huo Mian still felt a little awkward.
After all, back when Su Yu stayed at the hospital, Mrs. Su had unleashed her anger once, scaring away all of the nurses who worked in room 1.
Facing the now gentle-as-water Mrs. Su, Huo Mian didn’t know what to expect.
“Young lady, you seem to be a little scared of me?” Mrs. Su asked with a smile on her face.
