Chapter 299: Pool party
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
Ye Wanwan was familiarizing herself with her new job and was busy completing all the handover procedures. When she was done, the sky was already dark.
Seeing it was getting so late, Ye Wanwan stopped to stretch, put the files away and prepared to go home.
Although there were too many things to do and learn, she thoroughly enjoyed the sense of fulfilment she got from her job—she felt alive.
After Ye Wanwan left the office, she started walking on the sidewalk when all of a sudden, someone honked at her from behind. A silvery-gray Porsche slowly drove up to her as she walked.
The car window was rolled down and a dashing face appeared on the driver's side.
"Ye Bai!" The man in the car called out to her.
Ye Wanwan was surprised and stopped in her tracks. "Han Xian Yu?"
Ye Wanwan knew it was inconvenient for him to stop on the road for long, so she quickly got into the passenger seat. "Were you passing by?"
The corners of Han Xian Yu's eyes revealed a warm smile, "I especially waited for you! Did Zhou Wen Bin give you a hard time? It's only your first day—why did you have to work overtime?"
Ye Wanwan curled her lips and said arrogantly, "He wishes he gave me a hard time!"
In other words, Zhou Wen Bin didn't get what he wished for.
"I knew you wouldn't be bullied!" Han Xian Yu grinned in relief.
"Don't you... have to work?" Ye Wanwan glanced at Han Xian Yu, concerned.
The girl's case had already been settled so he should be quite busy now. Just the number of reporters who wanted to interview him numbered in the hundreds and would be able to form a line around Imperial City.
But other than posting a message of appreciation on Weibo to his supporters, he hadn't accepted a single interview or appeared in public, causing all his fans to be worried sick, afraid that he became discouraged by this damning incident. They were also worried he'd leave the entertainment industry altogether.
Since Han Xian Yu's fate had changed, Ye Wanwan was unable to foresee what would happen to him in the future.
The worried gaze from Ye Wanwan warmed Han Xian Yu's heart. "I took a few days off to rest, that's all. Oh right, my friend's throwing a party tonight, would you like to go with me? There'll be many people from the industry there; I can introduce some of them to you!"
The incident with the girl had mentally and physically exhausted him. Even if the case was settled, it still affected him to the point that he didn't even have the energy to do much these days.
His manager was worried that something would happen to him, so he forced him to leave the house and to deny the rumors about him leaving the industry at the same time.
They drove slowly. Soon, they arrived at Dazzling Media.
Ye Wanwan thought about his invitation. She really needed to network and knew Han Xian Yu was also trying to help her, so she replied gratefully, "Sure, I don't have anything planned tonight! Thanks!"
Han Xian Yu initially felt dispirited, but after Ye Wanwan agreed, his mood lifted somewhat.
After they arrived at the party, Ye Wanwan was dumbfounded.
The party was held at an outdoor swimming pool. There were hot girls in bikinis and fresh meat in swimming trunks everywhere, laughing and having fun in the pool.
"Why didn't you tell me it was a pool party?"
"What's wrong?" Han Xian Yu was confused.
Ye Wanwan furrowed her brows, "Nothing..."
Thankfully, not everyone was in their bathing suits—there were a few youngsters by the side who were chatting in their formal attire.
