Remember Self-Control: Bossy Husband Loves Me Deep to Soul - Chapter 24
Proofread by He Li
Listening to the corporate reporting, Gong Siming frowns with a trace of displeasure on his face.
Since Si Wan is obsessed with the company's accounting problems, the reputation of the Gongshi Group has also been greatly affected. Being more and more worried, the internal members of the company are also talking about the event, and the company staff are not of one mind. The financial system is not functioning normally either. What's more, Yan Xiuya is exerting constant pressure. Therefore, to Si Wan, the situation does not look optimistic at all.
"Boss Gong, even three weeks is not enough to solve the accounting problem, let alone three days. I am afraid that Director Si…"
"Shut up. There is still time. Tell those old guys to stay calm. Si Wan is bound to find the way to solve the problem."
When Gong Siming stands up, a sudden dizziness overcomes him, after which he rubs his eyebrows and stands still again. He walks close to the French window, and there are numerous tall buildings outside. He seems to have perceived Si Wan's world through her eyes.
Is this how she looks at the sky at this moment?
As if remembering something, Gong Siming quickly walks to his desk, picks up his mobile phone, and touches the familiar name.
Affairs abroad have upset him too much, and there are problems in the company.
"What does Chairman Yan say?" When Gong Siming asks the attitude of Yan Xiuya, the voice in the video call sounds kind of hesitant.
"Er, Chairman Yan, her meaning is that if Director Si fails to solve the problem in three days, she will be suspended."
Gong Siming's heart suddenly sinks, is this to drive Si Wan out? What is Yan thinking about? Why not trust her family?
Gong Siming knits his brows tightly, without noticing that he has deemed Si Wan as his family member.
After the corporate reporting, Gong Siming immediately grabs his cell phone and makes his call to the other side of the ocean.
"Ring…" Nobody answers?
Gong Siming frowns slightly, putting down his cell phone in a more depressed mood.
After a while, when Gong Siming is going to call again, his mobile phone vibrates.
On the light blue screen, the name "Yan Xiuya" is more and more striking. Gong Siming picks up the phone.
"It's me." Gong Siming's voice suddenly turns lower.
"What's the matter?" The voice on the other end of the phone sounds like waking up with a trace of sleepiness and anger.
"If it's the company's accounting problem, I'll handle it. Don't interfere." Yan Xiuya says firmly.
"That's why you're calling at midnight?" Yan Xiuya's voice is with slight resignation. Gong Siming looks at the sky outside and suddenly remembers that there is time difference between the two countries. It is unexpected that he has forgotten about this.
"I am also one of the shareholders of the company, so this involves my interests, and…" Gong Siming restrains his mood and becomes calm again. But before he finishes, Yan Xiuya interrupts him: "You are still abroad, so I will deal with this matter. As you know, my time is precious. If there is nothing else, please stop here."
"Wait. I think we should talk."
Finding Yan Xiuya hasn't hung up, Gong Siming seizes the opportunity to say something more.
"Talk about what? Do you mean Si Wan?" Yan Xiuya's tone is a little relieved. The kid finally knows about caring for others.
"It must be a misunderstanding. She won't do such things." It is rare that Gong Siming sounds a little humble. On the other end of the phone, Yan Xiuya can't help being surprised as he even pleads for Si Wan.
"What things? How much do you know about her? If you remember that I am your mother, don't wind me up."
Pretending to be angry, actually Yan Xiuya is a little relieved, as she feels unexpected that Gong Siming would plead for Si Wan. Although she doesn't totally support the marriage between the two, it's good that if Si Wan, who is brilliant enough, can gain the recognition of Gong Siming.
"There is still space to turn things around, and I have given her three days to solve the problem, by that way it can also shut the mouths of the lower staff." Yan Xiuya thinks of those members of Board of Directors who are all old foxes. They would absolutely not leave without making sure that she exerted pressure. If Yan Xiuya hadn't done that, she's afraid that Si Wan would have left the Gongshi Group this morning.
"But will you believe her? Even if she finds out the real criminal, you will also make her leave." Gong Siming questions Yan Xiuya with sarcasm. He could imagine how aggressive she was. As it is also not easy for Si Wan to give up, today the two were definitely standing opposite each other.
"Enough. I don't want to talk about this anymore." Yan Xiuya suppresses her anger. Is she such an unfair person in his heart? "Certainly, I have my reasons to do this. As for Si Wan, shouldn't you trust her competence?"
Yan Xiuya hangs up the phone after her words. Gazing at the telephone which is disconnected, Gong Siming gets lost in his mind.
On the other side, Si Wan just gets off. Taking off her sunglasses, she looks at the blue sky outside the hall. Maybe this is the world belonging to her.
Back to Grandfather Si's house, Si Wan looks at the familiar building and feels more and more secure. All the flowers and grass here are memories of her entire childhood. Thinking of this, Si Wan walks with light steps. Taking out the key from her handbag, she turns it gently, and the door opens in response.
The warm feeling blows on Si Wan's face, making her sigh with emotion: certainly this is the feeling of home…
The guest room is spacious and bright, without too many decorations. Any place she sees is simple and warm.
Si Wan takes a deep breath and slowly exhales it. She rolls comfortably on the sofa, and imagines grandfather's angry and funny look when he comes back, after which her eyebrows gradually spread and her eyes are full of happiness.
Thinking about this, Si Wan holds herself and falls asleep on the sofa.
There will be no smoke of gunpowder from commercial war and no harm from the outside world. With her childhood memories fermenting in the warmth of her family, she remembers that her grandfather used to put her on his own legs and to shake his cattail leaf fan. It was a very simple life, but obviously, it is untouchable now.
Si Wan falls into a deep slumber.
When she wakes up, the afternoon golden glow on the wall adds slight warmth to the room. Today is the second day, but the company's accounting problem still has no progress.
"Si Wan, why didn't you tell me in advance that you were coming back?" Grandfather Si gives her a big smile and hands over a cup of hot tea. Si Wan restrains the worry in her eyes and puts on a happy look.
"Come back secretly to give grandpa a surprise!" Si Wan opens her arms, and Grandfather Si rubs her head with a kind look.
"An old man doesn't need this. You can save your hugs for Gong Siming the brat."
Hearing the name of Gong Siming, Si Wan is slightly shocked. But it seems that her heart doesn't beat so fiercely and her feelings for Gong Siming are unconsciously not that strong.
It has become different from the beginning when only hearing his name would make her heart beat faster and faster. Now, even if he laughs at her, she will also feel indifferent.
"Grandfather, will you be happy if I go home?" Maybe it has been long since she was not obsessed with Gong Siming. Does it mean that she can just leave him carelessly?
