There was a hint of surprise in the man’s tone. As he spoke, he had already closed the document in his hand and stood up. He turned to look at the female assistant beside him and said lightly, “You go out first.”
Tang Ranran smiled and nodded. She tidied up the documents in her hands and turned to leave the office.
Ye Shengge was still standing at the same spot. Her gaze, which was filled with cautiousness and curiosity, landed on Tang Ranran.
Tang Ranran allowed her to size her up as if nothing had happened. When she passed by her, she even smiled at her. She looked humble but was actually provoking her—as if she did not take Ye Shengge seriously at all.
Ye Shengge’s pupils constricted.
After Tang Ranran lett the office, Ji Shiting walked up to her from behind his desk. The man put his arm around her shoulders and asked in a low voice, “Did you miss me?”
Ye Shengge did not say anything. Instead, she leaned closer to him and took a sniff. She recalled the perfume scent she had smelled on this man not long ago. Now, she could smell it in the air again. Although it was extremely faint, she could not ignore it.
She finally knew where this smell came from.
Seeing that she was silent, Ji Shiting raised his eyebrows. What’s wrong?”
“Why didn’t you tell me that you hired a female assistant?” Ye Shengge looked up at him.
Ji Shiting frowned slightly. “Should | tell you everything about the company’s personnel changes?”
The man sounded very serious.
A sense of helplessness welled up in Ye Shengge’s heart. She laughed bitterly. “No, of course you don’t have to tell me. It’s just that you’ve never had such a young and beautiful female assistant by your side. I find it a little strange.”
“It’s true that I don’t like to hire young female assistants, but Tang Ranran is indeed very capable, and it seems like he doesn’t have any ulterior motives,” the man explained.
Ye Shengge looked at him. “I have no other intentions. Are you sure?”
Ji Shiting inserted his right hand into her hair and laughed deeply. “You are being jealous for no reason.”
“What about Sun Ye? Did you fire him? Why didn’t I see him?” Ye Shengge asked persistently.
“He took half a month’s leave. It’s rare for him to take a day off, so I can’t just let him go.”
This time, even Ye Shengge was shocked. Sun Ye had worked for her for three years. She knew how dedicated Sun Ye was. Otherwise, Lin Ran would not have been unable to stand it and wanted to break up with him. Sun Ye was someone who would carry his computer to handle work even when he was
sick. Not only did he ask for leave, but he even asked for half a month off. ‘What is he planning to do? Could it be related to Lin Ran?”
“Alright then. When Sun Ye comes back, keep your distance from that female assistant. Don’t stay in the same room as him.” Ye Shengge’s tone sounded more like an order.
Ji Shiting stared at her with his dark eyes. “Shengge, I’m afraid I can’t agree to this request of yours. Tang Ranran is also taking on a very important job right now. She and Sun Ye just have different responsibilities.”
Ye Shengge bit her lower lip, but her heart was still very stifled. She knew that she should not continue to pester him. After all, Ji Shiting did not think that this was a problem at all.
However, that woman’s provocative gaze made her feel like there was a fish bone stuck in her throat.
If it had been Ji Shiting in the past, she would not have been worried even if that woman had ill intentions but now, she really lacked this sense of security and confidence..
