Remember Self-Control: Bossy Husband Loves Me Deep to Soul - Chapter 22
Proofread by He Li
In the shadow of night, the black car speeds away like an arrow. Si Wan shuts the window without saying anything. Clearing away the bowls and chopsticks on the table, Si Wan thinks it is a little surprising to feel more and more careless about where Gong Siming goes, as he has done this for many times. Anyway, there will be gossip news telling her everything tomorrow. Forcing a bitter smile, Si Wan believes that it is time to let him go.
Gong Siming, who left the villa of Gong Family, drives swiftly to a bar. The bell boy takes Gong Siming's car key as he usually does, and then leads Gong Siming into the bar.
Different from the noisy atmosphere outside, it is really quiet here. In front of the bar counter, a tall and straight figure is waving at Gong Siming.
"Boss Gong, it is so rare…" Ward grins. Taking off his coat and throwing it to Ward, Gong Siming attracts the attention of many females through his casual and handsome act.
It seems that the charm of the young host is really overwhelming. Since Ward came in, it is the first time that he has seen so many women looking this way at the same time.
"It's the first time I've seen Boss Gong invite someone to drink." Ward shows his amazement, as he was just intended to report the affairs abroad to Gong Siming. It is really rare that he received the invitation from Boss Gong to have a drink.
"Cut the crap. Drink or leave." Raising his eyebrows, Gong Siming asks the waiter to bring him a drink.
Ward smiles awkwardly: how dare he refuse the invitation from Boss Gong? "So why choose to drink today? To take solace in alcohol?"
"Do you think I need that?" Being stared by Gong Siming, Ward touches his nose. It seems that he is right, Jesus, who on earth dares to piss off the famous Boss Gong? Ward really wants to pay him a good visit.
"Young hostess?" Ward whispers to himself, but it is heard by Gong Siming who has a good ear. Finding Gong Siming put down the glass in his hand with force, Ward can't hold his laughter: it is young hostess indeed. Perhaps Boss Gong hasn't even realized that when it comes to young hostess, it is always so easy for him to expose his inner thoughts.
Ward feels more and more curious about what has happened between Gong Siming and Si Wan. What has this woman done? She can make such a powerful Gong Siming completely at lost, even taking solace in alcohol.
"Young hostess's life is not that good. If she had married an ordinary, I guess she would have been much happier now." Pretending to be pitiful, Wards gives Gong Siming a secret glance and finds he really doesn't look good. He wonders more urgently what young hostess has done to him.
"Ordinary? Can an ordinary afford her generosity to send the background board for free?" Grasping the glass tightly, Gong Siming finally tells the truth that his roses were ignored by Si Wan after Ward repeatedly asked him.
"If you dare to laugh, I will chop you in pieces to feed the wolves." Gong Siming gives a cold glance to Ward who is trying his best not to roar with laughter.
No one sends flowers without cards. It's good that young hostess didn't reject them. Besides, how many flowers did he send? There must be so many that they can be used as a background board for advertising.
It's really hard for Ward to hold his laughter, so Gong Siming gives a cold snort and ignores him. "Young host, can I ask whether young hostess knows who sent her the flowers?"
Approaching Gong Siming, Ward feels hard to speak as he still controls his laughter. Gong Siming pushes him away: "I don't know."
"Haha…Haha…" Ward can't keep a straight face any more. The corners of his mouth twitching, Gong Siming swiftly punches Ward on his belly, after which the latter doesn't know whether to laugh or to cry as it really hurts.
"I'm sorry, young host, I didn't mean it." Putting hands on his belly, Ward screws his face as he wants to laugh but feels the severe pain at the same time.
"You said you had something to tell me. Just come to it." Raising his hand, Gong Siming asks the waiter to bring him another drink, after which he finally turns to Ward who cries beside.
"Of course, I have something serious." With a gasp, Ward endures the pain from his belly. With the heavy punch, Ward thinks it lucky for him to be on the same side of Gong Siming, otherwise he may have already died.
"Can't you be gentler…" Finding Gong Siming looking at him coldly, Ward suddenly stops his complaints.
"Um, well, there is something wrong abroad…"
Wiping the cold sweat on his head, Ward dares not to provoke Gong Siming anymore. So he changes his attitude and tells Gong Siming everything he knows at present.
"Are you sure?" Gong Siming's eyes look fierce and his face turns solemn. Ward realizes the seriousness of the matter and also takes it seriously.
"Exactly. I am afraid that this time you are also involved. If you don't go there on your own, it will be hard to solve the unexpected problem."
Giving a sigh, Ward drinks up the liquor in the glass: "You need to prepare for this."
Gong Siming answers in a low voice with a solemn face: "Get the plane ticket ready. I will set out immediately after I fix all the matters at hand."
"OK. I know. But don't you need to tell young hostess about this?"
Ward sounds a little hesitant. Gong Siming turns his head as if he were in a fit of pique: "A woman who even can't gauge others' mind is not worth my care."
Drinking up his liquor, Gong Siming turns and leaves the bar. Ward doesn't know whether to laugh or to cry. Clearly it is Gong Siming's fault not to put a card in the flowers as everyone would remember to put something like a card, otherwise how could young hostess know about the person sending the flowers…"
Following Gong Siming, Ward shakes his head and feels that there is still a long way for this insensitive couple to go. It may be the first time that his young host has been so earnest, but he is not careful enough.
Since that day, Si Wan has never seen Gong Siming. Although she doesn't want to bother about his whereabouts, she still feels a bit empty at heart.
"Has Gong Siming come back recently?" Si Wan can't help but ask the servant at home.
The servant seems surprised: "Young host has been abroad for a business trip, didn't he tell you, young hostess?"
With an awkward smile, Si Wan has to explain that she forgot this. Returning to her room, Si Wan feels a little bitter at heart. No wonder he is not at home these days, it is because he has been abroad. But it is rather ridiculous that she knows nothing about this.
With a familiar pain spreading in her heart, Si Wan feels the tears start to hover in her eyes. After that night he left with anger, she was intended to wait for him, but he has been abroad in order to stay away from her.
"Si Wan, just give up. He will never give you another look." Si Wan whispers to herself and tears stream along her face.
The morning sunlight evenly spreads on the earth. Si Wan pats her dizzy head and cheers up: the new day has begun, just let the past go.
Adjusting her mood, Si Wan is ready to go to work. Reaching the downstairs of the company building, she hears a harsh ring.
"Director, where are you now?" It is Xiaoyu. Si Wan knits her eyebrows slightly as Xiaoyu's serious voice sounds a little unusual.
"There is something wrong with the company's accounts. Could you come here as soon as possible?"
Hearing this, Si Wan feels her heart sinking and her mind strained. "I am downstairs, coming to you immediately."
