“Because I don’t eat ice cream offered by strangers” was what Yun Jian did not say.
Yun Jian would actually eat ice cream and have had her fair share of snacks and desserts like that.
Hearing what Yun Jian said, Zhang Jiangui’s hand that was passing the ice cream to her made an obvious halt. He had gone to buy the ice cream just now to tease Yun Jian and had not thought about anything else, so he froze when he heard what Yun Jian said.
“My sister doesn’t eat things like this. You can have it yourself!” Ge Xuan spoke seriously, holding back his urge to laugh and mock Zhang Jiangui.
He actually knew that Yun Jian did not mind having an ice cream or two but he thought of how Zhang Jiangui and the other roommates always ordered him around and even made him pay knowing that he came from a well-to-do background. Yet the trio had never done anything for him since school reopened, only frequently asking him to do this and that for them.
Although Ge Xuan did not do as they told, he was incredibly annoyed. Now that he saw what Yun Jian did and Zhang Jiangui being rejected, he wanted to clap and cheer.
Zhang Jiangui was about to lash out at Ge Xuan’s words but held himself back considering he was around Yun Jian.
“Heh, I’ll have it since she doesn’t like it!” To please Yun Jian, Zhang Jiangui had only bought an ice cream; he gobbled it down himself since Yun Jian said that she did not want it.
As the group walked together, they arrived at Hachi Company shortly.
Like Dime And Prime Company, Hachi’s headquarters was already in Country M’s Maryland. Also like Dime And Prime Company, there were guards at the entrance of Hachi Company in the day and only official Hachi employees were allowed inside.
“I’ll stay at the door with meimei. You guys go ahead,” Ge Xuan paused when they came to Hachi Company’s entrance and told Zhang Jiangui and his other roommates.
“We’re already here. How could you guys not enter?” Zhang Jiangui knew that Ge Xuan must have thought that he was unable to bring all of them into the company since an established organization like this prohibited outsiders from entering.
“Heh, I know that big companies like this prohibits outsiders from entering but I can’t possibly let you guys wait here for us when I’ve already brought you along?”
What Zhang Jiangui said sounded very much like he was related to Hachi Company and there was a sense of glory like he was representing the company. Right after he had spoken, another roommate who was with them added hurriedly in a proud tone, “Ge Xuan, remember who Jiangui is. His eldest uncle works in Hachi Company. It’s a piece of cake for him to take all of you into the company!”
His tone was brimming with pride, as if Zhang Jiangui having a relative working in Hachi Company was something utterly impressive.
“So can we go in now?” Yun Jian asked indifferently after Zhang Jiangui and his roommates chorused each other and boasted in front of her and Ge Xuan.
“Heh, I’ll get my uncle to pick us up!” Zhang Jiangui made a call.
A while later, a middle-aged man in suit and leather shoes walked out of Hachi Company and took the teenagers into the building.
“This is my uncle! My uncle is Hachi Company’s…” To show off, Zhang Jiangui was about to brag loudly after they entered the company when a tall figure appeared before them.
This tall person was marching forward being escorted by a group of bodyguards.
“Ah! I-isn’t that Hachi Company’s CEO, Mr. Maier?” Zhang Jiangui cried.
He then wanted to brag about his knowledge to Yun Jian as he purposely coughed and continued to speak after putting up a front, “This Mr. CEO Maier of Hachi Company isn’t someone ordinary. He’s…”
Seeing Maier pass by from afar and Zhang Jiangui was beginning to lay it on thick to Yun Jian, Ge Xuan was heard speaking, “Eh, why does the person look familiar? Meimei, isn’t he the wedding guest you’ve invited to dad and mom’s wedding the last time?”
