Chapter 355 – Enraged Qiao Lian (5)
Afternoons at the news agency usually went by at a leisurely pace.
Part of the staff would be out gathering news, while the others who had finished the tasks at hand would sit back and relax until the end of the work day.
In Team Two’s office, Shi Nianyao looked at Qiao Lian calmly and asked, “So how are you going to punish Su Meimei? Quit being so secretive and let me in.”
Qiao Lian looked up and smiled. “If I tell you, are you going to go ahead and tell Mo Xicheng immediately?”
Shi Nianyao immediately stuck her tongue out at Qiao Lian. “Well, you looked so devastated that it scared me. Since I joined the news agency and started working with you, this is the first time I’ve seen you cry. I know how important that photograph is to you, that’s the only reason I told Mo Xicheng about it, with the hope that Best Actor Shen would come and cheer you up.”
Qiao Lian gave a cold “humph” and said, “Even then I can’t tell you.”
Qiao Lian smiled mysteriously. “Because that would spoil the fun…”
Shi Nianyao exclaimed, “Chief Editor Lian Lian, you’re being mischievous!”
Ignoring Shi Nianyao, Qiao Lian stared into the corridor outside the office.
After a while, she saw Su Meimei walk out of the office in front of hers. Su Meimei then walked over to the Managing Editor’s office and stood at the entrance.
It seemed like this time Liu Zhixing was really angry at Su Meimei, as he had not called her to meet up all morning.
However, she was eventually allowed to enter his office after a short exchange standing at his office doorway.
Then, as if having waited forever for this moment, Qiao Lian immediately stood up and sent a message on her cell phone:[You can come up now.]
After this, she sat back with her back straight and announced, “It’s showtime, Nianyao.”
Puzzled, Nianyao quickly followed Qiao Lian’s gaze and looked outside.
About five minutes later, the elevator chimed and a plump, heavily made-up woman stormed out as the elevator doors parted.
The reception lady hurriedly stood in her way and asked, “May I know who you’re looking for, and do you have an appointment?”
The woman frowned and replied impatiently, “I’m here to look for Liu Zhixing!”
“Managing Editor Liu? Do you have an appointment? If not, I’m afraid we can’t let you in.”
The woman laughed derisively. “Since when do I need an appointment to see Liu Zhixing? Get out of the way!”
The woman pushed open the entry barrier as she said this.
The receptionist was stunned for a moment before hurrying forward in an effort to stop her. “Hey, lady, what’s your problem? This is a news agency and it’s not open to the public.”
The woman halted and then sneered, “The public? You’re telling me I’m just anyone? Fine, let me tell you who I am! I’m Liu Zhixing’s wife!”
On hearing this, the receptionist looked surprised. “What? Managing Editor Liu is married?”
Seeing the worker’s reaction, the woman quickly figured out that Liu Zhixing had never announced he was married. She gave a sarcastic smile and roughly shoved the receptionist. “Get out of my way!”
She charged in and grabbed a random worker, asking, “Where is Liu Zhixing’s office?
The woman was too aggressive and the staff member could only point to Managing Editor Liu’s office nervously.
Without another word, the woman strode towards the office.
It seemed that Liu Zhixing’s door was locked, but the woman had obviously come prepared. With a wave of her hand, she summoned the locksmith she had brought along. The man stepped forward, bent over the door knob and started working immediately.
Within a few seconds, the lock was opened with a click and thus unlocking Liu Zhixing’s office.
