Caught? Did Jiang Chen really catch him?
The answer was an obvious no . Jiang Chen was too lazy to carry it as he threw the briefcase into the storage dimension . As for GPS signals that could pass through the dimension, that's only a feat that Lin Lin could achieve .
Now that his storage dimension had expanded to 20 cubic meters, there was no need to consider the lack of space inside . Five cubic meters was used to store weapons, such as the PK2000 assault rifle and the kinetic skeleton .
Xia Shiyu had already left . Looking at the empty office, Jiang Chen had nothing else to do .
Work? If he randomly pokes his nose into the company's business, he may not even be helpful with anything—rather, he would be causing more trouble . Since he had already delegated his responsibilities, he must continue the tradition .
If he didn't work, then he was playing games . As the president, merely sitting in the office is an effective method for increasing the morale of the employees .
Mhmm, that's the case .
As Jiang Chen thought, he sunk into the chair and took out his phone .
Speaking of which, as the developer himself, he hadn't even played his own game .
But thinking that it was too troublesome to register for a new account, he recollected that Future Technology had a partnership with Sohu in streaming . Jiang Chen smiled, searched, and opened Sohu TV .
The new platform was still under development stage, but the Sohu TV now opened a column specific for .
Although it was a mobile game, because of the open world, great freedom, superb graphics, and rich contents, a lot of people play it as a computer-based masterpiece .
Seeing its popularity being ranked as number one, Jiang Chen was secretly shocked breathless as he randomly opened a channel .
The screen was big, but the streamer's face covered one-fourth of the screen .
Looking at the exposed whiteness while hearing the flirtatious voice, Jiang Chen put on his headphones .
The female streamer was playing a thief . She was in the middle of a mission, but her control certain sucked . To kill a turtle-like boss, she died five times .
But that was not the crucial point . Every time she died, she would moan in a seductive voice .
"Is this streamer playing a game or moaning in bed . . . "
Jiang Chen ridiculed while facepalming as he continued the "market research" until the end .
Like this, Jiang Chen sent Friday in .
. . .
Jiang Chen chatted with the employees about to go off as he walked to the elevator empty-handed .
Just as the elevator door was about to close, Jiang Chen, afraid of trouble, sped up and dashed into the elevator .
Coincidentally, Xia Shiyu was also in the elevator .
Seeing that Xia Shiyu was looking at him strangely, Jiang Chen realized that his action lacked confidence . He smiled shamelessly and said "Hi" to her first .
"How's work today?"
"It's okay, I have been used to being busy . I am taking the rest of the documents home . " Xia Shiyu pushed up her glasses .
"Don't work too hard, your health is the most important . " Jiang Chen spoke with care .
Xia Shiyu nodded, but from her expression, she didn't seem to plan to listen to Jiang Chen .
"You are working so hard, which is making me, as the president, guilty . "
"Then why don't you help me out a bit?" Seeing Jiang Chen being emotional, she couldn't help but mock him .
"Ahem, I'll let the professionals take care of it . If I am doing it, I will only cause a mess . But I can treat you to dinner," Jiang Chen joked .
It was only a joke . Based on Jiang Chen's previous impression of Xia Shiyu, this girl would probably coldly reject it .
But to his surprise, Xia Shiyu took a moment to think about it, then nodded her head .
"Mhmm?" Jiang Chen thought he heard wrong .
"Didn't you say you are going to treat me?" Xia Shiyu raised her eyebrows while tilting her head .
"Uhh, I thought you would reject . . . "
"Do you want me to reject?" Xia Shiyu asked, downcasted, as she looked at the elevator door .
Jiang Chen was stunned .
The voice sounded like murmuring .
In her eyes, Jiang Chen saw a hint of confusion, and there was also an indescribable feeling .
He suddenly remembered that night .
She was drunk that night when he carried her home .
Under the influence of alcohol, they were very close . . .
"Who do you like?" The confession-like words swirled around his ear .
If it were not for the phone ringing suddenly, Jiang Chen knew that, with his personality and with Xia Shiyu being forward, he would not be able to control himself that night .
A crazy but intimate idea overtook his head .
If something did happen between the two that night, how would it feel like now?
"Of course not . " Jiang Chen smiled, and with a gentle voice, he asked, "How about tonight?"
"Okay . " Xia Shiyu nodded .
When the elevator reached the button, the two walked out of the elevator and into the parking lot .
"Where is your car?" Jiang Chen asked as he took out the key .
"I didn't buy a car yet . I drove company's car last time at the gathering, I usually take the train to work . "
Xia Shiyu's response surprised Jiang Chen .
"You are an executive at a billion-dollar company . The bank would not offer a loan to you?" Jiang Chen was puzzled as he opened the door courteously for her like a gentleman .
"I hate loans . " Xia Shiyu's mood was down .
Jiang Chen paused for a moment as he then recalled that she originally experienced hardship due to a loan .
"Sorry, I made you remember unpleasant memories . "
"It's okay . . . That time, thank you . " Xia Shiyu got in the car and lowered her head .
"Don't worry, everyone has their ups and downs . " Jiang Chen sat in the car, strapped on the seat belt, and started the car .
" . . . I am talking about that time when I was drunk . " Her face turned red as she said embarrassingly, "If I said something weird, I hope you didn't mind . "
Because they both remembered the intimacy that happened in the living room, the two fell into silence together .
The ride was smooth .
Once the car hit the highway, Xia Shiyu didn't say anything . Jiang Chen didn't know what to talk about either, and the atmosphere in the car was awkward .
Suddenly, Xia Shiyu broke the silence .
"I have read Weibo recently . "
"Do you have a girlfriend?" It was an abrupt question .
"No, why do you ask?"
"I saw that you are only following one person . . . Her name is Liu Yao?" Xia Shiyu asked, looking down .
The words sounded like jealousy to Jiang Chen .
Speaking of this, Liu Yao seemed to have mentioned it before . Because she was the only person he followed, people spread rumors about them, and that girl became popular for a while because of this .
Because of Ayesha's "interruption" last time, Jiang Chen forgot all about it . Liu Yao, without receiving permission from Jiang Chen, would not proactively clarify the situation, but instead, used a tactic common among celebrities—answer ambiguously .
The girlfriend of the nation's husband!
Liu Yao wouldn't have thought that her fans would increase exponentially because she registered a Weibo account for Jiang Chen .
"I happen to see her movie, so I just clicked follow . " For some reason, Jiang Chen subconscious lied .
His Weibo account was registered by Liu Yao .
Xia Shiyu opened her mouth as she seemed to have wanted to say something, but nothing came out .
[He isn't anyone to me . Why do I care so much?] Xia Shiyu thought out of spite as she looked out of the car window .
Although she had a boyfriend who hasn't even held her hands, when it comes to relationships, she was still as naive as a child .
Realizing that the person she liked had an ambiguous relationship with a female, she didn't try to pull him back to her, but rather, she became cold to express her jealousy and pushed him away .
Even more so now, since the two of them were not officially together .
At this time, Jiang Chen's phone rang .
[Is it Ayesha? I'll have to tell her I am not coming home for dinner . . . ]
He didn't mind . With one hand on the wheel, Jiang Chen connected to the Bluetooth and, with his eyes focused on the road, he accepted the call .
"Do you have time right now?" A pure voice with a hint of seduction echoed by his ear . It was obviously not Ayesha .
Jiang Chen paused for a moment, he then looked at the phone screen in his right hand:
Also looking at the phone screen was Xia Shiyu, sitting on the passenger side .
