Chapter Seventeen

Da Tian Ting knew she shouldn’t care . But her eyes didn’t listen, and tears flowed down her cheeks .

‘Da Tian Ting, it’s not worth crying over a heartless man,’ Da Tian Ting said to herself . ‘You and Shang Duan Hua are strangers . You should walk away, and move on with your life . ’

Da Tian Ting felt like it took her forever to return to her apartment . She put her grocery bags on the floor, and sterilized her wounds .

Da Tian Ting chanted to herself to forget the painful past, because tomorrow was a fresh start .

The following morning, Da Tian Ting woke up early, dressed and went to work .


Da Tian Ting didn’t care if her manager cursed her for skipping a day off work or deduct her monthly pay, because she saved a lot of money .

‘Da Tian Ting, how can you be so irresponsible?’ Miss Ma asked . ‘You didn’t even call to say you won’t coming into work yesterday . Don’t you want to work here anymore? If you don’t then tell me so I can find someone to replace you . ’

‘Manager Ma, of course I want to work here,’ Da Tian Ting said . ‘Look at my hands and legs . How could I come into work yesterday if I was injured?’

Da Tian Ting prayed for forgiveness for lying .

Miss Ma’s heart softened after seeing Da Tian Ting’s injuries .

‘Even if you’re injured, you should have called in sick,’ Miss Ma said . ‘If all employees are irresponsible like you then the company would close down their doors . ’

‘Manager Ma, I’m sorry,’ Da Tian Ting said .

‘It’s good you admitted your mistake,’ Miss Ma said . ‘I’m deducting your monthly bonus for this month . Get back to work . ’

‘Yes manager Ma,’ Da Tian Ting said .

Da Tian Ting went back to her desk after being told off by her manager . She sorted through the pile of paper work accumulated from skipping one day off work .

Ding Xiao Ran saw Da Tian Ting back at work, and went to Da Tian Ting’s desk .

‘Tian Ting, you won’t at work yesterday,’ Ding Xiao Ran said . ‘What happened?’

‘Nothing,’ Da Tian Ting said . ‘I was robbed . ’

Da Tian Ting didn’t keep anything valuable in her stolen old bag . A day ago she was sad about her ex-fiance . But in the morning, she felt refreshed .

‘What?’ Ding Xiao Ran asked . ‘You were robbed? What did you lose? Are you OK?’

Ding Xiao Ran’s loud voice attracted the attention of the other employees .

‘Tian Ting, where was your fiance?’ Ding Xiao Ran asked . ‘Isn’t he always with you? How can he let you be robbed?’

‘I don’t have a fiance anymore,’ Da Tian Ting said .

‘What do you mean you don’t have a fiance?’ Ding Xiao Ran asked .
