Remember Self-Control: Bossy Husband Loves Me Deep to Soul - Chapter 7
Proofread by He Li
The next day, Si Wan wakes up from a hangover with a splitting headache and a burst of soreness…
"Ouch…" Si Wan rubs her numb forehead, with blurred pictures flowing through her mind…She starts to call on what happened last night: firstly being liquored up by people, and then met the filthy "Mediterranean Sea" in the bathroom…
"No, no… That's impossible." Her heart does a flip, and the tight string in her mind almost breaks.
She nervously lifts the quilt in a moment, and feels desperately upset when she finds that her clothes have been changed. But as the familiar pattern and color of the pajamas become clearer to her, rubbing her forehead and looking around, she finally finds herself in the villa of Gong Family.
"I was almost scared to death…" Holding the quilt in her arms, Si Wan's face changes from green to pale, which obviously shows her lingering fear.
"Good morning, young hostess." The maid comes to wake Si Wan up on time. Finding her confusion, the maid says to her happily: "Young hostess, last night you were drunk, and I helped you change your clothes. You really have forgotten everything."
Si Wan frowns and asks without thinking: "You helped change my clothes, then who… who sent me back?"
The maid turns her head and looks shy: "Young hostess, young host sent you back last night, he just held you in his arms and put you on the bed himself… quite thoughtful. Young hostess, is your relationship getting better?"
Since Si Wan is easygoing to people at ordinary times, at this moment the servant also talks without careful consideration.
"I …" Si Wan tries to recollect what happened last night, but a drone is causing pain in her head. "Why didn't I remember?"
What she can only recollect is the scenes of being bothered by the "Mediterranean Sea"!
Except that, nothing else can be remembered. Her expression becomes more and more confused: "How could he send me back?"
Si Wan feels it unbelievable, but on second thoughts she realizes that the fact should be like this: when seeing she is harassed by the damned"Mediterranean Sea", Gong Siming, who is too possessive to allow his wife to get entangled with others, will surely bring her back out of kindness.
"Young hostess?" The maid calls Si Wan in a questioning tone.
Si Wan returns to herself: "Ah, what?"
The maid pumps Si Wan with a smile: "Are you reconciled with the young host?"
"No, stop guessing." With a bitter smile on her face, Si Wan says to herself: how could they get reconciled in such a simple way?
There is a huge gap between them, like thousands of rivers and mountains which can't be crossed.
"Where is he?" Si Wan's voice is hoarse because of the influence of alcohol, which sounds a little lonely.
The maid shakes her head: "After sending you back last night, young host returned to the company in a while."
After hearing this, lowering her forehead Si Wan whispers with a forced smile: "For sure, he would not like to stay with me even for a short moment."
The maid carefully glances at her without saying a word.
"Why are you so dejected?" Si Wan brightens her heart and smiles to the maid: "Let's go, time for breakfast."
Si Wan is accustomed to having breakfast at home alone. The whole table is cold and cheerless, but she doesn't feel uncomfortable. Only the sound of the spoon colliding with the bowl is amplified for several times, which is a bit harsh.
When the butler comes in and sees her, he could not help feeling a little pitiful. "Young hostess…" He hesitates for a moment: "Hostess and host will be back from business in a few days. Please get ready as soon as possible."
His subtext is: your parents-in-law are coming back soon, so you have to persuade the young host to come back and pretend to be a pair of qualified couple; otherwise, as a daughter-in-law, you will certainly be reprimanded for your failure.
Si Wan closes her eyes shortly and sighs silently: "I see."
She needs some time to figure out how to communicate with Gong Siming. After all, she really can't remember anything that happened last night.
After breakfast, Si Wan returns to the company in a hurry. As Yan Xiuya is not here, and Gong Siming is indifferent to the field Si Wan gets into, Si Wan needs to manage affairs constantly and check in person.
Last time Han Jingjing was replaced, so the company invited the model Julie. Although Julie is not very popular in the entertainment circle, she made her debut earlier and has shot many films and TV works; she has also won some prizes, which proves that she is accomplished.
Julie's stage manners are pretty good, which adds the sense of famous movie star to the advertisement. Si Wan is watching beside, nodding again and again, but suddenly a sneer arrives by her side, "Can this kind of thing go up on the stage?"
"Han Jingjing." Si Wan turns around and her eyes are slightly narrowed: "At least Julie is your senior; but to her, you don't even have the supposed respect. How can you match the quality of the collection of 'Angel' jewelry?"
Han Jingjing grits her teeth: "Si Wan, such a little power is not enough for you to judge me. You don't deserve."
Si Wan nods and stays calm: "At least, now as the young hostess of the Gong Family and Director of the Gongshi Group, I have enough power to get you, an idler, out of here."
After her words, she beckons to Xiaoyu to get the person out, but Han Jingjing refuses to obey and starts to shout: "Everyone knows that Boss Gong hates you extremely, don't use young hostess in name to put on airs!"
Holding a cold face, Xiaoyu tells the security guard to get Han Jingjing out. Many people have taken photos of Han Jingjing when she makes trouble, which causes her great anger.
When it's time to go for lunch, staff leave the company by twos and threes; since there are a lot of people disliking Si Wan in the company, nobody hopes to leave with her.
But Si Wan feels at ease. She is about to have lunch with Xiaoyu who is getting on well with her.
When the two arrive at the gate of the company, being sharp-eyed, Si Wan discovers a handsome man standing in front of the car. She lifts her eyebrows unconsciously: "Boss Mu?"
Mu Zhishen smiles softly and then opens the car door gently: "Director Si, may I have the honor to invite the beautiful lady to lunch?"
Being tactful, Xiaoyu immediately finds an excuse to leave: "Director, I forgot my purse. Please don't wait for me."
Si Wan does not know whether to cry or to laugh when seeing Xiaoyu flee. As Mu Zhishen stands there with a smile, she shakes her head slightly: "Boss Mu, you are always so surprising."
Mu Zhishen's soft and warm smile goes deeper: "Please, beautiful lady."
As a man of romantic type, Mu Zhishen picks up a Chinese restaurant close to the company. Because of its unique and elegant decoration, at first sight Si Wan falls in love with the restaurant.
"It is very unique here. Why didn't I know it before?"
Mu Zhishen thoughtfully pulls out the seat for her, teasing: "Because you're such a busy person."
Si Wan laughs, "You are making fun of me again."
Being humorous, gentle and learned, Mu Zhishen is a good friend to chat with. The scene of the two laughing and talking falls into the sight of some people at a table in the corner.
A decent-looking man pokes at the indifferent man beside him and jokes, "Boss Gong, is that your wife over there?"
Going out from the company, Gong Siming and some of his friends are having lunch here by chance. Hearing the words, he looks along the friend's sight, and then happens to see the moment when Si Wan and Mu Zhishen clink their glasses smilingly. Immediately Gong Siming satires inwardly: This woman of easy virtue!"
Gong Siming feels in a fret at once and sneers: it was last night when she held him in her arms and expressed her damned fondness after being drunk. But just one day later, she starts to have lunch with another man. What a good luck in adventures with males!
