On Monday, I actually got rid of my Monday Syndrome, and went to work in high spirit.

But the army on the bus is an irresistible force, and I was being squeezed in pain, yet I still maintained my good spirit.

I walked to the elevator, and saw An Yuan standing there, we looked at each other, at the same time. I felt an overflowing happiness within my heart.

Although it was usual for us riding the elevator together, the feeling was completely different; No one around us knows of our relationship, when in fact we are sharing such intimate relationship that no one could have imagined.

Exiting the elevator, I took wide steps towards the office, I was in such a good mood that I almost sang out loud.

But, people cannot always be happy, something would always get in the way to destroy this happiness.

The chief called me to the office, gravely criticized and severely condemned me for failing to come to work overtime on Saturday.

"If you couldn't come to work, you should have informed me from the beginning, ah. You said you will come, but you didn't come, ah. This behavior of yours has caused great trouble for everyone, don't you know it, ah? On the moral issue, if you can't keep up with your words, how do you expect other people to trust in the future, ah?"

I bowed my head, listening to the chief keep saying ah ah ah, my thinking started to drift back to the real reason for my tactic.

As I thought about Friday night to that Saturday morning, my face couldn't help but blush deep red.

Maybe my blushed face made the chief think that I'm being ashamed, and deemed that I can still be saved, so after an hour and five minutes of long lecture, I was released to go back to do self-criticism.

I went back to hide behind my computer to play spider card game, since I could no longer break my own record at minesweeper.

However, I have underestimated the power of fate, when I was ready to head to my lunch at noon, the chief once again stopped me.

"Xiao Wang."

The chief looked quite gloomy, and very serious.

I swallowed my saliva, thinking that I the fact that I used the company phone to recharge Q coins has been found out.

The chief first spent half an hour to introduce the responsibility of the General Affairs Department to me, and when my stomach began growling, he mysteriously patted my shoulder, and said to me: "The company has just developed a new product, and received great response from the market, so the company decided to have a celebration banquet; we will invite our partners and other relevant competitors to the banquet. This is a very important banquet."

I nodded, so it was the celebration banquet, that means it was time for us to do our job, my fellow backstage staffs, we would get busy...

"I've decided that you will be in charge this time."

I continued to nod.

Wait! Say what?

"I've agreed to give you the job, and since you are taking on the job, don't be lazy, don't be like last Saturday." The chief laughed haha, "I'm hungry, I'm going to eat now, now go on to get ready for your project, tomorrow send me a rough draft of your plan."

After saying that, he acted like those elders in the wuxia movies, clasping their hands together on the back and walked away.

As for me, ten minutes later I pushed back my lower jaw where it should be.
