573 Pei Ge, you have finally come back to work!
Because of their exchange, her expectant mood on the way to the company was totally gone.
Her head was now filled with worries of being seen getting off this man's car later; what should she do then?
In that moment, she was especially glad that she had woken up very early today!
Otherwise, if she had woken up the usual time for getting to work, countless colleagues would have caught her alighting from his car then.
As for now, since she was early to go to work, she could still pray that her colleagues would not see her.
Amid this eerie silence, the car arrived at the company's parking lot.
As the man drove the car into the parking lot, her eyes darted all over their surroundings.
Seeing that the coast was clear, she heaved a sigh of relief.
The moment his car came to a stop, she swiftly removed her seatbelt and hopped out of it.
Her series of actions seemed to have just taken a second to perform.
Bang! Only at the slamming of the car door did he realize that she had abandoned him!
"…" D*mn that woman!
Watching her fast receding back, his face turned increasingly grim.
"Huff… huff… huff…" Using an equal amount of strength to her 100-meter sprint for her physical fitness test in the past, she was out of the parking lot and into the lift in a matter of minutes.
By the time she came to a stop, she was already panting for breath heavily.
"G-Great… No one seemed to have seen me." She told herself this in relief between her panting.
However, if she were to do this once every day, she would most likely die from exhaustion!
Just thinking of it made her calves tremble.
Amid her wildly galloping imagination, the lift arrived at the CEO Secretariat.
By then, she had already caught her breath. She smoothed her clothes, exited the lift, and walked to the office that she had not been to in a while.
While the hallway looked familiar, the secretaries' office looked unfamiliar to her.
When she saw that a few items on her workstation did not belong to her, the office just grew more foreign to her.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
She approached her workstation and saw a few books she did not own on it. There were also a few potted plants on the table, which led her to question if her seat had been taken over by someone else.
She did not resign, though…
An unhappy feeling rose in her chest.
After all, no one would be happy if faced with such a situation.
Just as she was pondering on where she should sit, she saw the man walk into the office with a dark face.
Oh, no. This annoying fellow seems to be mad.
She gulped and held her breath, waiting for him to come over and lecture her. He, however, just walked straight into the CEO's office without looking her way. His entire being radiated of hostility.
"…" She relaxed when she saw him enter his office and redirected her attention back on to her seat.
After a moment's hesitation, she opened the drawers of her work desk.
Inside, she found the same items she had left there, and every drawer did not contain anyone else's belongings.
"What on earth is going on?"
She was confused. Was there a new colleague using her work desk or not?
Moments later, a third person, who could relieve her of confusion, walked into the office.
"Pei Ge, you've finally come back to work!"
This third person was none other than He Yan whom she shared a slightly better relationship with.
"Morning, He Yan." She greeted and smiled when she saw the other's shock at the sight of her.
"Morning, Pei Ge. Where have you been? You've been gone for so long," her colleague asked.
She did not really know how to explain to her colleague where she had been.
"Nowhere really. It's just that something cropped up at home," she replied with a smile.
"Oh, I see." Seeing that she did not want to talk about it, her colleague merely nodded and did not press her for answer anymore.
He Yan's attitude greatly improved the impression she had of the former.
"Oh, right. Is there someone new in our office?"
"There's none." Shaking her head, He Yan eyed her with confusion.
"Then, my table…" Before she could finish asking her question, her colleague started laughing.
She was confused by her sudden laughter, unsure of what the latter was laughing about.
"Ha ha! D'you mean your table? No one has taken over your seat. Seriously, you can occupy it without worry," He Yan said, looking at her who was just standing there.
Does this mean that Pei Ge has been standing here this whole time because she's afraid of someone else already occupying her seat? That's so nice.
"The potted plants are from Wang Ningning. Didn't you notice that every table in our office has a few of those?"
Her colleague's explanation clarified things for Pei Ge.
"Oh, I see…" She nodded, her impression of her other workmate improving.
With that matter settled, the two chatted about other things until the other secretaries arrived.
Seeing her unexpected appearance at work, the newcomer, Wang Ningning, merley gave her a polite nod.
Meanwhile, Lu Huiya, who had never liked her to begin with, could not stand the sight of her.
The moment she saw her come for work, she started mocking and ridiculing her.
