Ye Qing Xin watches his calm face. Jing Bo Yuan comes out of the bathroom with his neat and tidy clothes.
Compared to her messy state, Jing Bo Yuan looks very calm.
It’s quite dark outside and it’s snowing even heavily than before.
Jing Bo Yuan comes out from the bathroom with a wet towel. He uses it to wipes her hand.
Ye Qing Xin looks at him: “One of the book said that after the trimester, the baby will be stable, we can carry out with appropriate of s*x life. You, you, you should endure it for now…..”
Jing Bo Yuan: “…..”
“Read the book first. I handle something first. Last eat dinner tonight and I’ll take you to the charity night.”
Ye Qing Xin is tidying up her hair, “Charity night?”
Jing Bo Yuan: “Em.” He doesn’t explain too much about it, he strokes her head and goes out.
This time, Ye Qing Xin’s phone rings.
Ye Qing Xin guesses that should be DHL’s delivery man.
She looks at her phone and doesn’t recognize the number.
She answers and hears a strange man’s voice: “Hi, I’m DHL’s employee. Do you have the package that you want to send to Milan? I am downstair at Bo Wei’s company lobby. Please come down and give it to me.”
Ye Qing Xin: “Okay, I’ll go down soon.”
She hangs up and takes the box. She says to Jing Bo Yuan: “The delivery man is here, I’ll go downstair first.”
Jing Bo Yuan looks at her: “Let him go up and retrieve it.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “Secretary Mi said that the rule of the company states that no outsider can go upstair. Could it be because you are boss, you will disregard the rule?”
She pauses and remembers something. She asks him: “I’m also an outsider, do I break the rule?”
Jing Bo Yuan takes the case from her hold. “You are an insider.”
Ye Qing Xin is startled. She is his wife, she is Bo Wei’s mistress. Of course she is an insider.
She feels happy and comes forward to hug his arm. She acts like a spoiled child and says: “You take care of your business. I can go down by myself. It’s just passing him a few clothes, it’ll not make me tired. Don’t make me your obstruction. Your employees will watch you.”
Jing Bo Yuan looks at her.
Ye Qing Xin insists: “I really can do it by myself. You said before you need to handle something. I’m not really fragile, I’m bored to stay here for half day. I can go out and move around. Moreover, our kids are very good.” She strokes her belly: “Aren’t you good guys?”
Jing Bo Yuan looks at her and laughs. “Wait for me for a while.”
He turns to the resting room and comes back out with Ye Qing Xin’s coat and scarf.
Jing Bo Yuan helps her to wear it: “The lobby is much colder than here, you should wear this.”
“Bo Yuan.” She lowers her gaze and watches him to pull the zipper up. “You are taking care of me like, will I become useless if you are not beside me?”
Jing Bo Yuan pats her head: “Go.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles and goes out.
All the secretaries watch her come out. They immediately stand up and greet her.
Secretary Mi comes over: “Let me take it for you.”
Ye Qing Xin says: “It’s okay. I can do it.”
Jing Bo Yuan is standing near the door.
Jing Bo Yuan looks at Secretary Mi and nods at Ye Qing Xin. Secretary Mi notices and understands him. “Yes.” She follows Ye Qing Xin.
At last Ye Qing Xin let Secretary Mi to bring the suitcase.
Ye Qing Xin meets the delivery man in front of the receptionist.
The delivery man confirms her identity and passes her an English delivery form. Ye Qing Xin can fill it easily.
“What time it’ll arrive?” She finishes and passes it back.
The delivery man looks at the address and replies: “If there’s no accident, then it’ll take around 3-5 days.”
After a while, he asks: “Do you have any invoice?”
Ye Qing Xin shakes her head: “This is my own made, I have no invoice.”
“Then how much do you want to declare it to the custom?”
“Declare?” Ye Qing Xin is confused.
She looks at the suitcase… she tries to calculate, it should be around 500. She wants to answer it, but Secretary Mi is faster and says: “160 RMB.”
The delivery man looks at Ye Qing Xin.
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t understand why Secretary Mi said that amount of money but she thinks that she did it for her own good. She nods and repeats what Secretary Mi says: “160 RMB.”
The delivery man doesn’t say anything else, he writes something in the form. The delivery man leaves with the box.
Ye Qing Xin goes back to the office room with Secretary Mi Mi.
“Why did you say 160?” Ye Qing Xin asks.
Secretary Mi smiles and replies: “The tax threshold for Italian custom is 22 Euro, it’s around 172 RMB. We declare lower so we can avoid the additional tariff.”
Ye Qing Xin nods and compliments her: “You are so knowledgable.” She is silent and asks again: “How long have you been with Chief Jing?”
“In two months, it’ll be five years.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “You have a good memory, you even can remember the date clearly.”
“….” Secretary Mi is sensitive and smiles. She sounds happy: “The company rule sys that every five years, you will have twenty percent raise in your salary. I keep longing for day so I remember it clearly.’
Ye Qing Xin nods and asks: “you are so buys, aren’t your family complaining?”
“No, my husband also his own job. We both are busy. Every weekend we will take out our son out to play. My son is very sensible and will not make fuss with me.”
“You have a son?” Ye Qing Xin smiles: “I thought a capable woman like you will marry a bit later.”
“I’ve encountered him in early times, so I have no choice.” Secretary Mi smiles shyly.
Ye Qing Xin smiles and says nothing.
Inside the office.
Jing Bo Yuan is sitting down and reading something.
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t disturb him and goes to the sofa to sit down. She reads her magazine and suddenly she feels hungry. She takes a cake on the table and stuffs in inside her mouth.
Jing Bo Yuan raises his head and looks at her, he picks up his phone and asks something.
Ye Qing Xin hears his words but when she turns around, he is still reading.
Very quickly, Secretary Mi knocks the door and gets inside with a tray of fruits, desserts and sweet-sour plum juice.
Ye Qing Xin smiles.
At five p.m.
Jing Bo Yuan finishes his work and takes Ye Qing Xin to have dinner.
The restaurant is decorated in oldies style. Jing Bo Yuan and Ye Qing Xin don’t request for private room. Ye Qing Xin asks for a table near the window.
Jing Bo Yuan follows her and says nothing.
The waiter takes her to the table near the window. The atmosphere is so romantic.
They both sit down. Ye Qing Xin looks at Jing Bo Yuan and smiles.
