Huo Wei slept very well that night, because she thoroughly figured out Lou Xiao’s attitude towards Zhao Sijia, and it was worthwhile for her to beat around the bush, testing the ground little by little. Following it will be easier, even if she and Zhao Sijia came head to head, it will not affect her relationship with Lou Xiao.
She waited for several days and didn’t go to the company, just to heal her injuries first, and then calmly paint the painting. Now her head no longer hurts, and her ankles are no longer swollen. As long as she walks slowly and without too much force, it wouldn’t affect her much. She put on the new clothes her mother bought and went to the Huo’s headquarters dressed beautifully.
The front desk receptionist knew her, and when led her to the elevator upon seeing her.
Huo Wei thanked politely and walked into the elevator with a smile.
The receptionist walked back to the station and whispered to the colleague: “Oh that was the daughter of the chairman, she speaks so gently, is very pretty, and very polite, she doesn’t look like a spoiled girl.”
The colleague whispered: “That’s because you didn’t see her last time. Last time, she broke in directly with a cold face, and had a fight with the general manager.”
“Then… what is she doing this time? She couldn’t be looking for a fight anymore, right? She was still smiling.”
“Hey, it doesn’t matter to us whether the gods fight or not.”
The few dropped the topic after a few words, but they were all thinking about it, waiting to see if Huo Wei would create any signs of movement.
Huo Wei went directly to the top floor and went straight to the chairman’s office. The first person to notice her was Zhao Sijia, who was confused looking at the files. Zhao Sijia sneered when she saw her energetic look. Huo Wei would be arrogant and talk about herself like a victim, but in the end, she was the only one who suffered. These days she had been getting unhappier day by day, and there were still many people who think that she hurt Huo Wei, which was really inexplicable.
Zhao Sijia sat at the desk and didn’t move, she lowered her head as if she didn’t see her, she didn’t mean to say hello at all. Reasonably everyone working here are senior secretaries and special assistants around the chairman. She has the least qualifications and experience. She should be responsible for entertaining guests and serving tea and water. Now she was motionless, and other people are a little unhappy.
Huo Ting Wei’s first secretary, Secretary Qin, came up to her with a smile, and greeted politely, “What took Miss Huo the time to come here? The chairman has a guest now, and the guest will leave in about 20 minutes. Can you please wait in the reception room for a while? “
“Of course, I’m not in a hurry.” Huo Wei nodded to her and walked straight to the reception room. When she passed by Zhao Sijia, she didn’t even look at her.
It’s one thing for Zhao Sijia not to talk to her, but it’s another thing to be ignored by her now. Zhao Sijia lowered her head, always feeling that other colleagues were watching her and judging her. Huo Wei was the daughter of the chairman, and she is just a “friend” who had been cleared of all relations. Now Huo Wei thinks that she didn’t exist, just like making fun of her overconfidence in public.
Secretary Qin asked Huo Wei and made a cup of coffee for Huo Wei. Seeing Zhao Sijia motionless like a statue, she frowned slightly, feeling a little annoyed.
Everyone had seen the outcome of Wang Jing and Xia Meng. Now that Huo Wei had come to the top floor, she had become the victim. In the past few days, she had used trying to help her familiarise herself with the work here as an excuse, to keep Zhao Sijia sorting out files that were not confidential, but such an excuse could not be used all the time. She still had no idea how to treat this Buddha in the future.
Secretary Qin found two fashion magazines and sent them into the reception room together with the coffee, and smiled politely: “Does Miss Huo need anything else?”
Huo Wei crossed her legs and leaned on the sofa relaxedly, fiddled with her hair, reached out, and gestured towards the sofa on the opposite, “sit down, Secretary Qin. I have something to tell you. I will delay you for a few minutes.”
Secretary Qin was a little surprised and didn’t understand what there is to talk about between them, but she sat down opposite her, ready to listen with slight curiosity.
The reception room was some distance away from Zhao Sijia’s workstation, but one can see the other. Huo Wei glanced at Zhao Sijia outside, and then looked at Secretary Qin, “Before I had a quarrel with Huo Ming and Zhao Sijia, and my father promised to compensate me, so I asked to have Zhao Sijia transferred and become father’s assistant.”
After hearing her mention Zhao Sijia, Secretary Qin focus like she was dealing with customers, so as not to be distracted to say things that shouldn’t be said, following the footsteps of Wang Jing and Xia Meng. As the first secretary of the chairman, she couldn’t be mixed any part with the Huo’s family.
However, she was a little surprised. It was Huo Wei’s idea for Zhao Sijia to transfer her post instead of the chairman’s promotion of Zhao Sijia. Then Zhao Sijia’s position in the heart of the chairman was worth considering, perhaps she was not as important as she thought.
Huo Wei apologized: “I heard some rumors in the past two days. It seems that Zhao Sijia’s work ability is very poor, implicating her colleagues into punishment. This is something I haven’t considered before. Now she is working as my father’s assistant, it must have caused you a lot of trouble. I’m very sorry.”
“Miss Huo, please don’t say that. I mind my own business and there is no trouble.” Secretary Qin did not stand on either side and refused to go along with her words.
Huo Wei didn’t care, she also showed a relieved expression, as if she really believed her words, and said with a smile: “I’m glad that Secretary Qin doesn’t blame me. I’m afraid of causing trouble to Secretary Qin. In fact, with Secretary Qin’s ability, even though Zhao Sijia is a newcomer, Secretary Qin will definitely be able to help her out. I hope she can do things steadily in the future, master the basic work skills, and not cause trouble for my father. Otherwise, if she causes you trouble, I will be very sorry. “
Secretary Qin smiled affectionately, and said bureaucratically: “Miss Huo don’t worry, we will definitely work hard and earnestly complete the chairman’s orders.”
Huo Wei nodded, picked up the coffee, and gently stirred, “Then I am relieved, I’m sorry to have delayed Secretary Qin’s time. I hope it doesn’t affect your work.”
“No. Then I’ll go back to work, call me if Miss Huo needs anything.” Secretary Qin stood up, greeted Huo Wei, went out, and closed the glass door. From beginning to end, she is a perfect secretary, without any improper words and deeds.
But she was actually a little puzzled in her head. Huo Wei called her to apologize? Huo Wei doesn’t actually need to apologize to her, right?
Secretary Qin returned to the workstation with doubts. Zhao Sijia pretended to take something and looked in the reception room. She saw Huo Wei leisurely drinking coffee. She didn’t know what brand of clothes she was wearing, they matched her very well. She is beautiful and exquisite, and it can be seen at a glance that she is a young heiress, the kind who has never been wronged was spoiled since birth.
Compared with herself, organizing files from morning to night, with a dizzy head and an aching back, Huo Wei is the happier one.
The recent series of events made Zhao Sijia less confident than before. How many times she had developed an unstoppable sense of superiority in front of Huo Wei. Although she knew that was wrong, she just couldn’t control it. Huo Ting Wei and Huo Ming both liked her more. She was from a bad background. The first time she saw Huo Wei, she looked up to her. But the love of the Huo’s father and son made her feel superior than Huo Wei.
What if Huo Wei was born with a silver spoon in her mouth? She was still disliked by her own father and brother. Every time she saw Huo Wei angry and shouting, she would be faintly happy. Even though Huo Wei was a rich daughter, she was also very unhappy, but she herself was just an ordinary girl, yet she had the happiness that originally belonged to Huo Wei.
But today, she held the file and looked at Huo Wei who was relaxing over there, and suddenly felt that she had been thinking it wrong all the time. Huo Wei would get angry whenever she wanted to, happy when she wanted to be happy, spend money when she wanted to spend money, without worrying about anything, she is obviously much happier than her. She is the one who is restrained everywhere.
Zhao Sijia thought a lot, the more she thought about it, the more uncomfortable she became. She couldn’t help but always wanted to glance at Huo Wei. Unfortunately, until the guests in Huo Ting Wei’s office came out, Huo Wei didn’t even look at her, completely ignoring her.
The special assistant sent the guest away. Secretary Qin went into the office and reported to Huo Ting Wei that Huo Wei had been here for twenty minutes.
Huo Ting Wei was a little surprised and subconsciously felt that Huo Wei was here to mess around. The mother and daughter moved out for several days and did not go home. What good things can come here now?
He was about to ask Secretary Qin to ask Huo Wei to come in, when Huo Wei walked to the office door and stood still, knocked on the door, and said, “Dad, it’s not easy to see you. Can I come in?”
“What’s the matter?” Huo Ting Wei frowned and looked down at the documents on the table.
As soon as the two met, Secretary Qin determined that there was a conflict between their father and daughter. Seeing Huo Ting Wei had no intention of sending her out, she silently exited the office. When the door was closed, she heard Huo Wei say: “I want to be the manager of the R&D department.”
She paused and raised her head in astonishment. Seeing Huo Ting Wei as stunned as her, he said coldly: “What are you messing around this time? If you have had enough just go home with your mother. I’m still busy. Don’t mess around.”
Huo Wei said casually, “Whatever Huo Ming has, I shall have it too. He was a manager when just joined the company, and now he is the general manager. I am not asking for much, I will be the manager of the R&D department, which suits me.”
Secretary Qin listened enough, closed the door gently, and went to the pantry. She thought it was a little ridiculous. Huo Ming was a genius in business management. His abilities were obvious to all. He joined the company as a manager without making any mistakes, and his performance was outstanding. What gives Huo Wei the guts to ask so? As far as she knows, Huo Wei has been bad at school since she was a child, who only knows to draw, yet hasn’t painted any significant work.
This was the heiress who had messed around enough at home, and now she is coming to harm the company? She thought of the conversation in the reception room before and deeply felt that if Huo Wei came to the company, her lethality would definitely be several times that of Zhao Sijia, she was afraid that she would live a peaceful day in the future.
She returned to her workstation with a water glass and saw Zhao Sijia looking at the office from time to time. She didn’t even notice that the files were sorted in the wrong places. She couldn’t help but frown knocked on her desk, and warned: “Be more focused at work.”
Zhao Sijia looked down, her face flushed immediately, and hurriedly took out the files in the box to reorganize them. She said in a low voice, “I’m sorry, Secretary Qin, I didn’t mean it.”
No one cared if she was intentional or not, you have to focus at work, and being so absent is more unacceptable than being intentional. Who would be responsible for what happens in the future? Secretary Qin went back to sit at her desk, so she couldn’t understand how Zhao Sijia couldn’t even do well with such an easy task.
Huo Wei’s words suddenly appeared in her mind as long as Zhao Sijia mastered the basic skills at work, she would not cause trouble.
She stopped typing on the keyboard, and after carefully thinking about it, it suddenly became clear. She never knew what job to arrange for Zhao Sijia. In fact, she could treat Zhao Sijia as a pure newcomer and let Zhao Sijia do the casual little things!
Since Zhao Sijia couldn’t even handle such simple tasks, shouldn’t she be trained more? Many employees who first joined the company trained this way. Although such people couldn’t even get close to their department but didn’t Zhao Sijia only come in through the back door?
It’s normal for someone who came into the company by relations to have zero experience at the workplace. It’s right to start with simple things and train slowly. If Zhao Sijia can really make progress little by little, she can naturally also assign Zhao Sijia more important tasks. Everything speaks according to one’s ability. This conforms to the purpose of their department. It is fair, and it will not let other colleagues have opinions on her.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
But she also had to make some preparations beforehand, to avoid making Zhao Sijia upset and complain to Huo Ting Wei. Thanks to Huo Wei’s words of reminder, the visit to Huo Wei today not only did it not bring her trouble, but it also helped her solve the difficulties in front of her. Secretary Qin felt very relieved.
She suddenly thought, did Huo Wei say those things on purpose? Just to let her step on Zhao Sijia and not let Zhao Sijia rise above? But looking at Huo Wei’s recklessness when she said that she was going to be a manager, it didn’t seem like she would beat around the bush to dig a hole for Zhao Sijia to fall in.
In any case, it was the best choice for her to do this. It didn’t matter to her if Huo Wei was intentional or not, it was good enough for her benefit. Zhao Sijia had always advertised that she was working hard and making progress. Then following up, she would let Zhao Sijia work with her true ability, then Zhao Sijia would have nothing to say.
Secretary Qin thought about Huo Wei’s intentions, and Huo Ting Wei in the office was also wondering if Huo Wei’s visit to the company had any special meaning. He saw that Huo Wei insisted on being the manager of the R&D department and had lost his patience. Displeased, he said: “Your brother is a manager because of his ability. What do you rely on? Connection?”
Huo Wei pointed outside with her thumb, ”then what did Zhao Sijia rely on to be the assistant to the general manager and the chairman? Relying on her ability? I heard that she made a mess out of her work and often caused her colleagues to clean up her mess. She didn’t rely on connections?
Why can she rely on connections, but I can’t? In relation, am I not closer to you? After all, we are really related by blood.”
Huo Ting Wei was tired of her rude words and attitude, which did not respect him at all, and questioned his decision. He said expressionlessly: “Sijia is different from you. She has no family and is unwilling to spend our money in vain, so I gave her a job to make her self-reliant. Besides, she can calm down and work hard, can you? If I let you go to work, I wouldn’t be able to find you if I wanted to.”
Huo Wei clapped her hands and laughed: “What self-reliance! Isn’t she richer than most people? Just for her ridiculous inferiority and self-esteem, you let her harm your Right-hand man in the company? Okay, you are the chairman so have it your way, but I can’t have my treatment worse than hers. Huo Ming and I are both from Huo’s family, and I shall have everything he has.”
“Impossible, go home. I still have meetings.” Huo Ting Wei was too lazy to argue with her and directly ordered her to leave.
Huo Wei came here deliberately to intensified the conflict, how could she just leave like this? She tidied up her collar and said, “What kind of meeting? I want to attend. Don’t refuse me immediately. You always say that I am being unreasonable. Why do I feel that you are the one who is unreasonable? You said Huo Ming is capable of being a manager. How do you know if I am not? You have never interviewed me or tested me, don’t you think it’s too much to deny me like this?”
Her persistence in joining the company finally made Huo Ting Wei serious. He looked at her for a long while and said in a deep voice, “Are you going to fight with your brother for the family business?”
Huo Wei shrugged noncommittally, “I don’t recognize him as my brother, he and I are both your children, why do you prefer sons to daughters? Do you think your daughter is not worthy of inheriting the family business?”
Huo Ting Wei never considered the issue of patriarchy. Because he is very indifferent in terms of family relationships. He would feel a little proud of the excellence of his son, but he feels nothing of his daughter is playfulness and rebelliousness. He thought that in a family, it would be good for everyone to play their respective roles. He was the head of the family, Cui Jing was a decent wife, his son was an excellent heir, and his daughter was an idler who would be messing around for several years and married off to others.
Now he was just minding his own business, only taking care of Zhao Sijia a little bit more, Cui Jing quarreled with him and ran away from home. His son also did something wrong and was shamed by the entire network. Now his daughter is actually fighting for the right of inheritance, which is simply inexplicable!
Huo Wei watched the system display of the impression value which dropped from 40 to 30, she wasn’t afraid at all, and suggested: “Why not gather the people in the R&D department to have a small meeting? If I am not capable enough, I will leave immediately.”
Huo Tingwei stared at her with deep eyes. It took him a while to agree to this embarrassing behavior, “Okay.”
He pressed the interphone, and said in a cold voice: “Secretary Qin, inform the R&D department for a meeting and call Huo Ming.”
“Okay, Chairman.” Secretary Qin responded, immediately called to inform.
Huo Ming asked suspiciously what the purpose of the meeting was. Secretary Qin only said that Huo Wei was here, and the rest was unclear. After a short while, Huo Ming frowned and went straight to the office.
Huo Ming was anxious to see what Huo Wei was messing about, and didn’t look at Zhao Sijia when he passed by. It was uncomfortable for Zhao Sijia to be ignored by Huo Wei before, but this time she was ignored by Huo Ming, and her heart suddenly became cold. She didn’t know what to think. Seeing that Secretary Qin was contacting the meeting room, she quietly took the computer and prepared, and planned to follow into the meeting room in the name of taking records. This is what assistants should do anyway.
Huo Ting Wei still had an important meeting later, so this meeting was announced urgently. When Huo Ming walked to the door of the office, Huo Ting Wei and Huo Wei were walking out.
He asked Huo Ting Wei: “Chairman, why are we having a meeting suddenly? And why did Huo Wei follow?”
The father and son were acting diplomatically in the company, Huo Ting Wei raised his hand when he heard the words, and signaled him to stay calm, “Huo Wei thinks she is capable to be the manager of the R&D department, she wants to prove her strength at the meeting.”
“It’s nonsense.” Huo Ming and Huo Ting Wei reacted the same and wanted Huo Wei to go home immediately.
Huo Wei walked by him, took the lead in the direction of the elevator, and said in front of the secretary and assistants: “Is Manager Huo afraid of me entering the company? Or is he afraid that I will show my abilities, and no one will compliment your excellence in the future?” “
Huo Ting Wei said in a deep voice, ”Huo Wei, do not talk nonsense.”
Huo Wei smiled carelessly, everything she said was true, they shall see in the conference room. So what with genius? Many people can be regarded as geniuses, and she is confident that she will not be worse than Huo Ming.
Huo Ting Wei glanced at her expression and was silent. He agreed to hold this meeting, on the one hand, he wanted Huo Wei to stop insisting to join the company. On the other hand, he also wanted to see what made Huo Wei so confident.
The most likely reason is that Huo Wei bought the information about the research and development of ai robots with a high price, and wanted to show off at the conference, using this as an excuse to enter the company. This is not impossible. If Huo Ming is the son who makes him proud, then Huo Wei’s performance from elementary school makes him feel that Huo Wei is a bit stupid. It’s natural for stupid people to do this kind of thing.
Perhaps being left in the woods gave Huo Wei a sense of crisis and having a bad relationship with the next head of the family, she might as well take the family business for herself. This was a good idea, yet it’s a pity that she doesn’t have enough ability.
Huo Ting Wei had been very annoyed by family affairs recently. He wants to take this opportunity to teach Huo Wei a good lesson, and then let Cui Jing review how she spoils her daughter so that the family can return to peace and end the conflict between them.
From now on, Zhao Sijia will live outside, and he will not see them, and if they live separately, there will be no such annoying things happening again like the recent events. It can be considered once and for all, this meeting is worth having.
Zhao Sijia lowered her head to follow behind a few people, without any sense of existence, and silently hugged the laptop in her arms. She didn’t understand Huo Ting Wei’s thoughts but felt that Huo Ting Wei was still treating his biological daughter better. Huo Wei made such an outrageous request, and Huo Ting Wei still let Huo Wei mess around.
And she obviously didn’t do anything with Huo Wei, Huo Ting Wei asked her to apologize to Huo Wei, and in order to “compensate” Huo Wei, he asked her to leave the Huo’s house and transferred her position. She once felt complacent about Huo Ting Wei’s partiality to herself, but now she suddenly became uncertain. Is Huo Ting Wei really partial to her? Huo Wei isn’t being reasonable today, so why not kick Huo Wei out?
Several important members of the R&D department first arrived at the conference room. They didn’t know why they had a meeting suddenly. They were surprised when they saw Huo Wei. They didn’t know why she appeared here.
Huo Ting Wei sat down, scanned the faces of everyone, and slowly said, “I called everyone here today because Huo Wei graduated and intends to work in the R&D department. Let’s test her level and see if she can join the R&D department.”
Several people in the R&D department looked at Huo Wei at the same time, the surprise on their faces couldn’t hide. Then someone pushed his glasses and said embarrassingly: “The R&D department has very demanding requirements for professional ability. It is also very hard and dull at work. Sometimes I stay in the laboratory for days and nights and work overtime until two or three in the morning. It’s a common thing, maybe it’s not suitable for Miss Huo.”
Huo Wei smiled calmly and said: “How can I feel bored doing things I’m interested in? I like ai robots very much. Since Huo’s started to occupy the ai market two years ago, I studied a lot of professional knowledge by heart. Today, I invite you to test me. Don’t worry, if I’m not capable enough, I won’t bring up wanting to enter the R&D department again. You don’t have to be burdened.”
Several people released a sigh of relief at the same time, they didn’t take her studying seriously. Those who study this professionally may not be able to learn well, what can Huo Wei learn as an enthusiast? Mostly the heiress is just being self-righteous.
Zhao Sijia hadn’t spoken when she was outside, as was afraid that they would not let her in because she had no business in this. Now sitting in the conference room, she raised her head and looked straight at Huo Wei.
Huo Ting Wei said that Huo Wei wants to be the manager of the R&D department, how dare she think about it!
She had never seen Huo Wei study hard, how could Huo Wei understand research and development? She wanted to see how Huo Wei ended up, and with a big drama, she would have to look for a crack in the ground to hide in after a while! How shameful![Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
