"Huh? N . . . No, only really important people can attend . . . " Xia Shiyu's expression was obviously shaken as her tone changed into a rare franticness .
"Then that's even better . " Jiang Chen smiled .
Hearing that, Xia Shiyu buried her head as her silky, black bangs slightly hid her eyes .
"I, I am someone important to you?"
"Of course," Jiang Chen answered without hesitation .
As the CEO, Xia Shiyu played a pivotal role in Future Technology's current accomplishments . From the operating of the company to handling crises, Jiang Chen had no experience at all as he left everything to Xia Shiyu .
The technology from the future is indeed powerful, but without the operations of a professional, it would only be a powerful technology .
To Jiang Chen, Xia Shiyu was as crucial as his hands .
But for the word "important", the two apparently had two different kinds of interpretation .
When he heard Jiang Chen's "of course," Xia Shiyu's face turned redder .
"But . . . But we haven't even dated, we don't know if we are right for each other, it would be too rushed if we go straight to the last step-"
With arms across her chest, Xia Shiyu looked away . Her finger anxiously played with her own hair, even her pale neck was covered by the red hue .
"Wait, I do not understand . . . " Jiang Chen immediately interrupted Xia Shiyu with a bitter smile .
Xia Shiyu looked at him and put her arms down .
"Uh, the requirement for the female companion, could you explain it to me . . . "
Of course, the two had a discrepancy in understanding .
It was okay to bring a female companion, but it must be a wife or at least a fiance . Even a girlfriend wasn't enough . Although there was no written rule, it became the norm .
If a girlfriend or even a mistress could be brought to the gathering, then things could become chaotic . Most of the people participating in the gathering have more than one mistress, with some changing models or actresses every few days . If anyone can be brought into the circle, it would devalue the forum .
In the end, it was a gathering meant for the elites, to find partners beneficial to their career, it was not a fun kind of party .
Therefore, it was inappropriate to invite Xia Shiyu .
"Uh, sorry, I haven't thought about that level," Jiang Chen apologized, feeling embarrassed .
"It's okay . "
Xia Shiyu let out a breath of relief .
Perhaps it was his illusion, but he sensed that she was slightly disappointed .
"Umm, now that everything is done, I'm going to go back to my office . " Xia Shiyu slightly bowed and turned around to leave .
Looking at her leave, Jiang Chen opened his mouth but he didn't end up saying anything .
When Xia Shiyu came of the office, she headed straight for her own . But when she walked through the hallway, the red hue on her face was seen by her colleagues .
"Eh, CEO Xia just walked out of the president's office . " Seeing Su Mengqi's pouting expression, her good friend Li Fengying poked her arm and joked .
After passing through the probation period, she was moved into the sales department with her good friend . The two were walking to their desk with documents in hand .
"I see," Su Mengqi replied without any energy .
"Her face is also very red . "
"Woo . "
"Why are you so boring, aren't you curious what they did?" Li Fengying with a dubious expression whispered into Su Mengqi's ear .
"I am going to tell CEO Xia and have your salary deducted . " Su Mengqi stuck out her finger and "fiercely" poke her good friend's neck as she whispered .
The two fooled around for a moment more as they walked towards their desk .
But Su Mengqi's smile was bitter .
If the competition was CEO Xia, she had no odds of winning at all .
. . .
"Did you get the information?"
"Yes . "
Inside the presidential suite in Sheraton hotel, Carmen Rothschild sat on a chair, a black man was standing in front of him . From the muscular appearance, he looked like a soldier, at least one from not too long ago .
Johnson served in the Fran foreign military before . After he has been discharged, he had acquired French nationality and worked in a security company . Now, he worked for the Rothschild family . He was the bodyguard for Carmen's Han trip, and also his assistance .
"Jiang Chen, born in 1992, from Hucheng . Studied at Wanghai University with a major in mechanical engineering . He became a salesperson in a clothing store after graduation . . . Damn, a resume made out of a mold," Looking at the stack of paper, Carmen cursed .
Ten pages . It was all the information they could collect on Jiang Chen .
"Since everyone in this country is cut out of the same mold," Johson cracked a smile as he mocked .
"No, you didn't understand my meaning . " Carmen flipped through the document once more before putting it aside . "Because it is too ordinary, the validity of the information is suspicious . For example, if you throw a graduate from MIT, what would be his first reaction?"
"Pee his pants?"
"Exactly . " Carmen snapped his finger and pointed at the document . "And this person, not only did he not pee his pants, he saved an American from the IS . This American is also an interesting individual . He smuggled firearms in Veit before, transported crude oil in Iran, and was finally surveillance by the FBI . That's why he is a lot more obedient . But he has been moving around again, he seems to be working for Jiang Chen . "
Johnson's contempt soon faded as he put on a serious expression .
"True . From this point, this Han called Jiang Chen is not a simple character . "
"In your opinion, how much training would it take to get to his level?" Carmen smiled .
"Mentality or shooting?"
"Of course mentality . "
Thinking for a moment, Johnson gave a fair answer based on his own experience . "It would take three months in training, three days on the battlefield . "
Carmen nodded, he took over a bottle of wine and elegantly poured himself a cup .
"I think there may be inaccuracies in our information . At least this resume is likely fake . The only thing I am curious about now is what does the organization behind him do . They played us in Ukraine, but only ended up taking a few old soldiers away to become trainers, and then built a military base in Nigeria . Interesting . "
"Then what's your intention boss?" Johnson asked .
"Maintain status quo and keep in contact . Also, I am interested in where the USB would be sent to?" Carmen with elegance took a sip of the wine as he looked like he was fully in control of the situation .
If everything goes as planned, that briefcase would be sent overseas, with the mysterious technology team taking over .
He left a GPS tracker on the USB which would send the location to his computer .
As long as they know the location of the mysterious organization, they would no longer be mysterious .
When he heard his boss's words, Johnson took a moment to digest the information before he also started to chuckle .
Carmen proposed a toast to Johnson . Then with a cheerful expression, he pressed a few buttons on the laptop .
The map appeared in front of him .
The delicate wine glass smashed into pieces after falling on the ground .
Without caring about the wine stain splashed onto his pants, Carmen immediately stood up . With both hands pressed against the table, he stared at the screen .
On his face, his confident expression had vanished .
"How is this possible!"
"What happened?" Johnson walked up hastily, but when he saw the screen, his expression also froze .
"We got caught . Looks like we still underestimated him . " with a bitter smile, Carmen sat back on the chair in defeat as he rubbed his temple .
