Power and Wealth - Chapter 529
Side building, Party Secretary Office.
When everyone in the Subdistrict Office and the Neighborhood Committees is waiting to see Dong Xuebing fail, he is also waiting for Wang Yuling’s retaliation. But morning is almost over, and it’s still peaceful. He is getting frustrated.
Dong Xuebing looks up. “Come in, please.”
Wang Yuling, dressed in trendy clothes, enters Dong Xuebing’s office.
Dong Xuebing looked at her and told her to wait. He continued reading the Neighborhood Committees’ work reports and made her stand there.
Suddenly, Dong Xuebing heard Wang Yuling sobbing.
Dong Xuebing was surprised and looked at Wang Yuling, who had started crying again. He had not scolded her today, and why is she crying? He cleared his throat. “What is it, Director Wang?”
Wang Yuling wiped her tears and placed a piece of paper on the desk. “Self-reflection letter…”
Huh? Self-reflection letter?
You wrote that?!
Dong Xuebing was stunned and picked it up.
Self-reflection letter: Sorry. I am wrong, and I hope the Organization and Subdistrict Work Party Committee can forgive me.
This is a short letter, but Dong Xuebing is surprised. What is she trying to do? Is she trying to appease me and then find an opportunity to get back at me? But this is not something she will do with her character. He quickly realizes she had not complained to her Uncle and is truly repent. He looks at her in her eyes. “Do you know your mistake?”
Wang Yuling sniffled, wiped her tears, and nodded.
Dong Xuebing’s impression of Wang Yuling had changed. She must have gotten a fright yesterday.
Does she know her mistake?
She is still a good comrade as she is willing to change after she learned her lesson.
Dong Xuebing changed his tone. “I shouldn’t have shouted at you yesterday. Do you feel wronged?”
Wang Yuling shook her head, and her tears are still flowing.
Wang Yuling did not move.
“Are you waiting for my invitation? Haha… Sit.”
Wang Yuling bit her lips and sat opposite Dong Xuebing.
Dong Xuebing passed two napkins to her. “Wipe your tears. Huh? You are one of our Subdistrict Office’s Leaders and should be setting an example for others. Stop crying. Who doesn’t make mistakes? You just need to learn from your mistake and change.” He stood up and poured a cup of warm water for her.
Wang Yuling took two sips and composed herself. Her face turns red after she stops crying. Maybe she felt embarrassed.
Dong Xuebing continued. “I had scolded you yesterday is for your good. Our Subdistrict Office’s main duty is to serve the civilians, and you shouldn’t have that attitude. But it’s over and let’s not bring it up again.” Dong Xuebing paused for a second and smiles. “I still have not talked to you since I got appointed two days ago. Are you single or married? Do you have a boyfriend?”
Wang Yuling replied softly. “I have a boyfriend.”
“Oh, it’s such a pity. I have a younger brother who is still single, and I thought of introducing him to you. Where is your boyfriend working?”
Wang Yuling looks at Dong Xuebing cautiously. “He is still studying for his Masters.”
“Good.” Dong Xuebing nodded and continued to chat with Wang Yuling about trivial issues.
Wang Yuling slowly felt more comfortable.
About fifteen minutes later, Dong Xuebing changed the topic again. “I was too harsh on you yesterday, and my attitude was not right. Please don’t take it to heart.”
Wang Yuling waved her hand. “No. It was my fault for losing my temper at that old lady.”
Dong Xuebing looks at his watch and smiles. “It’s almost lunch. Let’s go to the cafeteria.”
“Ok.” Wang Yuling stood up. “I will go back to get my lunch card.”
“Don’t bother. You can use mine.”
After a short chat, Dong Xuebing can tell Wang Yuling is just immature and spoilt. But she was not scheming and did not complain to her Uncle. Instead, she chose to write the self-reflection letter. His impression of her changed, and he felt she has a good character. She only lacks experience.
It’s hard for Dong Xuebing to treat a childish girl like the rest of the Leaders. She is more like a younger sister, who loves talking about fashion and the latest trends. They continued chatting while walking to the cafeteria.
Everyone’s jaw dropped when they saw Dong Xuebing and Wang Yuling chatting and walking towards the cafeteria. Wang Yuling did not take revenge on Dong Xuebing and even used his meal card to buy their food. It seems yesterday’s incident had not happened!
“Xiao Wang, let’s sit here.”
Wang Yuling and Dong Xuebing sat at an empty table and started eating. They continued chatting about the cafeteria’s food.
Zhou Yanru is relieved when she saw them. She smiles and walks over with her food. “Director, can I join you all?”
Dong Xuebing smiles. “Sure.”
Wang Yuling smiles. “Sister Zhou.”
“Hi.” Zhou Yanru smiles. “What are you all chatting about? Let me join.”
Wang Yuling replied. “We are discussing the vegetables. It’s slightly overcooked.”
“Really?” Zhou Yanru took a bite. “It’s true. I will tell them off later.”
Dong Xuebing waved his hand. “It’s fine. They have a tough job, and we shouldn’t discourage them.”
The ones who wanted to see Dong Xuebing get into trouble are speechless. What the hell is going on? Didn’t they have a fallout yesterday? Everyone who comes to the cafeteria is shocked to see this!
