After I sat down in An Yuan's car, I turned my head and asked him: "Have you been waiting for me here?"

"Uh." Then he turned to me and said: "No need to say thank you."

I smiled in embarrassment.

He continued to say: "While I was waiting for you, I also did some thinking about something; so it wasn't boring".

I didn't know what to say, I didn't dare to ask him what he was thinking about. Truth be told I was scared to hear his answer.

Even though we have an intimate relationship, I cannot help but to be very cautious; I'm scared that I will destroy this difficult to obtain affection.

An Yuan quietly drove the car as I looked out the window to stare at the night scenery, but I saw nothing.

The high spirit I was in from this morning was now gone.

We are all like this, work and love; these worries are like insects that keep preying on us and won't let go.

"The outcome, well we're all worrying about the outcome of something."

Ah? I was startled and immediately looked at him.

He was looking straight ahead and said: "I don't know what you are thinking, but I want to tell you the truth; we are very different in many aspects."

My heart tightened at hearing this.

"We have only been together for a few days and we are already feeling this way, I'm not sure what would happen to us later on."

I felt a little uncomfortable, well, very uncomfortable. It's not that I'm not aware of the reality, but to have another person continue to tell you the reality of the matter time after time, it always makes one feel uncomfortable.

"Since Friday, we have been very reserved."

We? I was stunned.

"Not only you, but me too." He frowned slightly, looked at the road and said: "If from the beginning we weren't in this kind of relationship, perhaps it would be better; suddenly we became lovers without the basic foundation, being too anxious leads to an unwanted outcome...."

After the car arrived at my house he placed his hand on my neck and turned me to look at him, then he stared deeply at me.

"So let's take it slow, okay?"

He asked for my opinion once again, I took the initiative to kiss him. After I had pulled back I saw his ears getting all red.

I got out of the car and said goodbye, once again I watched him drive off.

Although my heart was still stifled, it somewhat felt slightly better now. We have just started, we still have plenty of time so there is no need to feel anxious, we can overcome all the gaps and obstacles in the future.

I scratched my head and began to worry about work.

Starting the next day, the company began to relax a little after launching the new product into the market. Even though the marketing department hasn't completed all the tasks, this type of victory at the early stage already had people quite elated, tired or thinking that not all their hard work was done in vain.

All the other departments can now relax and take it easy; however, the General Affairs Department is the opposite. The subordinates of some departments had already received formal notification from the Department head stating after the product has successfully launched into the market, there will be some changes in the company's personnel; there will be rendering to give publicity to a company's culture, distributing employee's benefits and so on. In layman's terms every step requires the General Affairs Department personnel.
