“But you don’t have the obligation to be good to me,” Xu Wanwan insisted. “If you’re good to me, I have to do something for you.”

“You want to cook for me again?” Li Jingran subconsciously looked at the girl’s hand and vetoed it. “I said once a week, no more.”

“It’s not just cooking. I can do other things,” Xu Wanwan said sincerely.

“I don’t need you to do anything,” Li Jingran said. “I took you home not because I’m looking for free labor anyway.”

“But if you keep helping me, I’ll feel bad.”

Xu Wanwan saw that he kept on disagreeing, so she became anxious as she explained. “I’m not used to owing favors. Just let me do something.”

Li Jingran frowned. This was the first time he had heard of such a request.

However, when he thought of the girl’s original family, he could understand her reluctance to not owe him anything.

After all, she had suffered too much. Now that she was suddenly living a comfortable life, she could not help but feel uncomfortable.

Li Jingran lowered his voice and confirmed once again, “Are you sure you want to help me?”

“Yes, I’m sure!” Xu Wanwan immediately nodded. “As long as it’s something I can do, I’ll definitely do it well.”

Li Jingran chuckled and compromised, “Alright, you’ll go to the company with me tomorrow and help the secretary handle some small matters.”

Xu Wanwan’s eyes lit up.

He agreed!

It would be best if she could go to Li Jingran’s company. She could even take advantage of the holiday to learn something.

It was much better than being idle at home.

Xu Wanwan was very excited. She got up early the next day and tidied up. After she finished making breakfast, she waited for Li Jingran in the dining room.

At seven o’clock, Li Jingran went downstairs. When he saw the girl sitting and waiting, he couldn’t help but frown. “Did you cook again today?”

“No, no.” Xu Wanwan knew he would ask this question, so she thought of an excuse in advance. “This was made by the kitchen Auntie, not me.”

Li Jingran glanced at the hot porridge in front of him indifferently. He took a spoonful and tasted it. His eyes darkened. “Since when did you learn to lie?”

Xu Wanwan’s heart skipped a beat.

“It seems that Miss Xu thinks I’m a fool. Do you think I won’t be able to tell the taste?” Li Jingran looked at the girl’s surprised look and laughed. “Did Auntie cook this meal or did you cook it?”

Xu Wan blushed and quickly apologized, “I made it, I’m sorry.”

After saying that, she carefully glanced at Li Jingran. Seeing that he was not as angry as before, she said, “I just want to be more of a help to you…”

“Okay, from now on, just follow me to the company to help out. You don’t have to do things at home.”

Xu Wanwan bit her lip and nodded. “Okay.”

After breakfast, Xu Wanwan followed Li Jingran into the driver’s car and arrived at the Li Corporation together.

After getting out of the car, she looked up at the towering building and a hint of shock surfaced in her eyes.

“Is such a big building all yours?”

“Yes, this is just one of the companies.” Li Jingran carried the briefcase and strode inside.

Xu Wanwan sighed in her heart and followed closely. She took the bag from the man’s hand with great discernment. “Since I’m here to help you, it’s better if I do these things.”

She insisted on taking it, so Li Jingran had to let go.

On the first floor of the company, the front desk saw Li Jingran coming and shouted with a smile, “Good morning, Director Li!”

Li Jingran just nodded and walked quickly to the elevator.

Xu Wanwan clutched his briefcase and jogged after him.

The two front desk clerks stared at Xu Wanwan in confusion and asked curiously, “How come I’ve never seen this girl before? Since when can a new employee be together with Director Li?”

The other front desk clerk lowered his voice and said, “Let’s not gossip. What if she has a special relationship with Director Li?”

“That’s true. After all, Director Li hasn’t been with a woman for many years. It’s not strange for a woman to suddenly appear beside him.”

The top floor of the company was Li Jingran’s office. Xu Wanwan followed him into the president’s office and carefully put down his briefcase. She couldn’t help but ask, “Then what should I do next?”

Li Jingran sat in front of his desk, turned on his computer, and started to deal with his affairs. “Sit down and rest for a while.”

Xu Wanwan was afraid of disturbing his work, so she obediently moved a chair and sat behind Li Jingran.

She was very bored. She fiddled with her fingertips and surveyed the huge office.

The office was very big and empty, with only a desk and a few chairs. There was a sofa in the corner, and it looked particularly simple and spacious.

She couldn’t help but admire Li Jingran for being able to work in such a depressing environment.

If this was her office, she would definitely decorate it well.

Just as she was thinking, there was a knock on the office door. A young woman in a business suit then walked in.

Xu Wanwan subconsciously looked at the woman and smiled politely.

The young woman looked calm on the surface, but there was a hint of surprise in her eyes.

She quickly collected her emotions and placed a stack of documents in front of Li Jingran’s desk. “Director Li, these are the documents that need your signature.”

“Okay.” Li Jingran stopped what he was doing and turned around to look at Xu Wanwan. He said calmly, “This is Secretary Lin. You will be with her from now on to help organize the documents.”

Xu Wanwan stood up and walked up to the secretary. She extended her hand in a friendly manner. “Hello, I’m Xu Wanwan.”

Secretary Lin shook her hand back. “Hello.”

Li Jingran looked at Secretary Lin. “This is my younger sister. Take good care of her.”

Secretary Lin was surprised. She could not tell that the little girl in front of her wearing white short-sleeves and jeans was Director Li’s younger sister.

However, she quickly adjusted herself and nodded. “Alright, don’t worry.”

Then, Xu Wanwan followed Secretary Lin to another office.

Along the way, many people greeted Secretary Lin. When they saw Xu Wanwan, they were all very puzzled.

Those who could work on this floor were all people with prestige in the company. How did a little girl get in?

Secretary Lin acted in a business-like manner and brought Xu Wanwan to the work area. She knocked on the table and reminded everyone, “Stop for a moment. I want to introduce a new partner to everyone.”

Everyone who was working looked at Xu Wanwan with curiosity and scrutiny.

Secretary Lin patted Xu Wanwan’s shoulder. “This is Director Li’s sister. She will be working with everyone from now on. Please take care of her.”

As soon as he said that, everyone could not help but start whispering.

“It can’t be. Director Li actually has a sister? We have been in the company for so many years. Why haven’t we heard of her before?”

“This girl doesn’t look old. If she’s not Director Li’s sister, could she be Director Li’s girlfriend?”

“You don’t say. Director Li hasn’t been getting close to women all these years. Maybe he’s into this.”

“What nonsense are you talking about? This girl is indeed Director Li’s sister, but she’s not his biological sister.”

“All right, all right, stop talking. Since she’s Director Li’s person, let’s pay more attention and take care of her.”

Secretary Lin turned to look at Xu Wanwan and said in a friendly tone, “You’ve just arrived and aren’t familiar with the environment, so follow me first.. When you understand more, I’ll arrange a new job for you.”
