The Wall of Brotherhood – 10
Lu Zhi Yao stood there expressionlessly. He looked indifferent as usual and his aura was very frightening. People’s hearts would tremble from glancing from the distance. Obviously, he was angry and the cold air around him was terrifying.
Annie had cold sweat and her heart almost jumped out tensely under Lu Zhi Yao’s cold eyes.
Lu Zhi Yao stepped forward slowly and the sound of the leather shoes hitting the ground was particularly clear in the quiet room at this time. “Are the designers from my branch inferior?”
“President Lu, I didn’t mean that. I just…” Annie managed to squeeze out a smile and hurriedly explained.
“Enough, talk about leadership behind their backs. You don’t have to come back to work tomorrow, okay?” Lu Zhi Yao opened his mouth in a leisure manner and imposed.
“President Lu, no, I was wrong…” Annie almost cried.
Bai Xun unconsciously looked at Lu Zhi Yao, “General manager …”
There was another male voice that was faster than hers, “General manager Lu, are you going over me to discipline my subordinates? Or, do you want to go over the president?”
It was unknown when Andric came out of his office.
He looked at Lu Zhi Yao with a smile.
She saw how respectful he was to Lu Zhi Yao, Bai Xun could imagine that Lu Zhi Yao’s status here wasn’t as good as Lu Zhi Yuan.
Lu Zhi Yao faintly looked. “You are the director of the design department. Naturally, I won’t interfere with your people, but be careful of your dog that bites people. No wonder someone will beat the dog.”
His tone was calm, as if he was talking about something irrelevant.
Andric, unlike him, lacked control over his own emotions. His face was livid, he looked at Annie then looked at the drawing on Bai Xun’s table. He said in a cold voice: “I will naturally discipline my own people. As for some people in particular, don’t assume that it’s a great honor that you’ve been the lead designer previously, look around you, who hasn’t?”
Lu Zhi Yao narrowed his eyes. “Do lead designers here do work that these assistant designers don’t need to do?”
Instead of answering Lu Zhi Yao, Andric looked at Bai Xun and said with a sneer, “The ability of computer-aided design is a must for every newcomer. What, do you want to be special?”
…Motherfucker, Bai Xun stared at the two upright men who were tense like swords, shook her head – how could she hang around Lu once the special person’s hat was buttoned down!
“Don’t worry director. I’ll finish it.” Bai Xun hurriedly replied, then stepped forward and took Lu Zhi Yao before he could say anything.
She pulled people to a lounge chair in an open space and sat down. She was relieved. She looked at Lu Zhi Yao with a grateful and funny expression.
“General manager, thank you for speaking on my behalf, but don’t argue with them…after all, this isn’t our place.”
She mysteriously mumbled and kept her voice down.
Does this mean that in her mind, they were in the same camp?
Lu Zhi Yao’s expression softened.
Bai Xun remembered something and said, “By the way, why are you suddenly here?”
Lu Zhi Yao glanced at her and softly said, “I came here for a meeting. I wanted to see how you adapted to the new environment. I didn’t expect that…he would even let people do this to you.”
“He…? Do you mean A’Yuan?” Bai Xun wrinkled her nose and said, “It has nothing to do with him…”
Lu Zhi Yao narrowed his eyes and casually said: “What? It has only been a while since you started to talk to him.”
“No, I just…” Bai Xun was silent, she didn’t know what to say.
……What the hell! She was telling the truth. Lu Zhi Yuan must have wanted to torture her first, but how could A’Yuan have no backbone, he just wanted her besides him!
Elder brother, do you know that you’re jealous?
Lu Zhi Yao looked at her gloomy appearance and thought that she still likes Lu Zhi Yuan in her heart and his eyes darkened.
“Well, I shouldn’t have mentioned him. If you’re not happy here, I can take you away.”
“Away?” Bai Xun returned from her daze and shook her head. “Lu currently needs me to stay here and I can’t leave now. What’s more, there are many excellent designers here and I could learn more.”
“All right.” Lu Zhi Yao paused, “When you want to leave, just let me know.”
“Thank you, general manager.” Bai Xun was grateful and strongly nodded.
Lu Zhi Yao seemed to have thought of something. He mentioned the bag he had been holding in his hand. “By the way, I thought you didn’t have lunch, so I bought you lunch.”
Bai Xun was really hungry, and her eyes brightened. She reached out to take it. “General manager, you’re really kind!”
“I can’t always eat what you cook, occasionally should be polite.” Lu Zhi Yao looked at her impatient expression and his cold eyes faintly smiled. She was really simple and easy to satisfy.
Bai Xun was anxious to eat, her cheeks bulged like a little hamster.
“Eat slowly.” Lu Zhi Yao paused, then suddenly whispered, “Don’t move.”
“Huh?” Bai Xun’s small face was bulging and she looked up at him stupidly.
Lu Zhi Yao leaned closer to her and reached out to help her wipe off the rice grains from the corners of her mouth and gently said, “It was…”
“Thank you.” Bai Xun was a little embarrassed and her face turned red.
Lu Zhi Yuan, who came all this way, his face almost changed instantly.
“What are you doing?” He pushed open the door in front of them and walked toward them. His voice was coldly filled with anger. “Bai Xiao Xun, the company asked you to come back, not for you to flirt!”
