Xu Chenghao smiled and said, “You took away the little yellow duck’s first kiss.”

Jing Yicheng’s veins jumped, and he gritted his teeth: “Then do I still have to be responsible?”

Xu Chenghao: “You’re thinking beautiful.”

Jing Yicheng: “Hehe.”

Li Nian felt like he was watching two childish people with dumb voices arguing.
So he immediately cleared his throat and interrupted their conversation, smiling at Xu Chenghao and saying, “President Xu, if you have a bad voice, drink more water, talk less!”

Xu Chenghao: “…Oh.”

Li Nian returned the topic to cooperation, pointing out several parts of the project’s proposal to Xu Chenghao, signaling that this cooperation was very dangerous and it was best to proceed with caution and not fall for it.

Because he was in front of his collaborators, Li Nian couldn’t make it too obvious and only vaguely expressed his concerns.

Jing Yicheng’s finger on the armrest suddenly tapped; the assistant immediately understood and opened his mouth to explain: “About the unfairness of this cooperation, I think President Xu must be clear about what is going on; we came to cooperate with sincerity, if you still do not feel at ease, you can change the remittance time to 24 hours, and add a mark to terminate the cooperation immediately after the time is exceeded.
What do you think?”

This attitude that they must work together to succeed made Li Nian even warier, constantly feeling like they were hunters who were luring snakes out of their holes, even to the point of brainstorming.
He even suspected that the poaching of the Jiang group and Ji Yicheng’s olive branch were all Ruan Chenxuan and Jing Yicheng’s plan to take out Xu Chenghao!

…… it’s not impossible.

Li Nian frowned and quietly tugged Xu Chenghao’s clothes under the table, reminding him to stay awake and not be tempted.

Xu Chenghao patted his wrist soothingly and said to Jing Yicheng, “President Jing really did not go back on his word and showed me sincerity.”

Jing Yicheng smiled, “I said the enemy of my enemy is my friend, and I’m cooperating this time to tell you that I sincerely want to become friends with you.”

Xu Chenghao crossed his arms on the table and said thoughtfully, “I’m satisfied with the proposal, but I would like to add one more clause to it.”

Jing Yicheng: “I would like to hear the details.”

Xu Chenghao: “It’s very simple.
If President Jing gave me false news, and the Jiang group did not give up the cooperation with the Xu family, I have the right to terminate the cooperation immediately.”

Jing Yicheng was silent for two seconds and suddenly sat up straight as well.
“If the information I gave you is false, this project can be converted into any cooperation related to me at will, the content remains the same, and I have no right to call it off.”

This played out big.
Not to mention Xu Chenghao and Li Nian’s identical shocked faces, even the assistant sitting next to Jing Yicheng had a ‘who am I and where am I?’ ‘That line wasn’t rehearsed’ look on his face.

Xu Chenghao understood the plot and naturally had a clear understanding of the villain’s power, and understood even better how great the influence behind this promise really was.
It was no exaggeration to say that if the Xu Group was on the verge of bankruptcy one day, he could bring it back to life with this one project proposal!

This is the strength of the villain who can have a three million-word plot with the male protagonist!

Much better than a spare tire…

Xu Chenghao sighed resentfully and clapped his hands together, “Deal!”

Li Nian: “!!!” He glared sideways and gritted his teeth, “President Xu!”

Xu Chenghao subconsciously retracted his hand and was just about to say something when he was cut off by Jing Yicheng, “Since President Xu has already agreed, why not simply type out a new contract to sign in your company.”

The assistant also quickly returned to his senses and said, “I can help.”

The road was blocked by their words.
Li Nian was speechless and helpless and could only reluctantly leave with the assistant.
When closing the door, he couldn’t help but fiercely glare at Xu Chenghao.

Xu Chenghao: “…”

He was wronged! It was evident that what he did was good, but now that the villain’s strength only revealed the tip of the iceberg, it led Li Nian to think he was impulsive and seduced!

He’s so wronged! It’s snowing in June!1六月飞霜: literally means summer frost but, actually means unjust case.
It’s just like how it’s impossible to snow in summer.

Xu Chenghao sighed and leaned back in his chair, waiting for Li Nian to return so they could hurt each other!

Jing Yicheng coughed a few times and said casually, “You two seem to have a good relationship?”


Xu Chenghao also coughed twice and said without moving, “Isn’t your assistant also quite good?”


Jing Yicheng: “Compared to your assistant, it seems to be a little bit worse.”

Xu Chenghao said, “Then you have to ask yourself.”

Xu Chenghao and Li Nian were like brothers; it is normal for them to consider and care about each other when they get along.
The relationship between Jing Yicheng and his assistant is businesslike and professional, perfectly in line with the workplace relationship.

There was absolutely no comparison between the two.
But for some reason, Jing Yicheng was very interested in this topic and continued to ask, “Do you have many friends?”


Xu Chenghao glanced at him: “It should be more than you.”


Jing Yicheng calmly said, “I have none.”


Xu Chenghao: “Oh, I have.”


Jing Yicheng: “Are there many confidants too?”

Xu Chenghao: “Not much, one is enough.”

Jing Yicheng suddenly hooked his lips and smiled, “I also think so.”

Xu Chenghao sighed, “Then I wish you to find a close friend soon.”

“Many thanks.”

“You’re welcome.”


After two people had a conversation that Xu Chenghao unilaterally thought was boring, they reverted to silence – after all, they were both hoarse-voiced people who couldn’t say much.

For the rest of the waiting time, they all held a cup of hot water each, and very rhythmically, you cough twice, I cough twice, then together they took a sip of hot tea and continued waiting in silence.

Putting it mildly, they both became like this because of each other – Xu Chenghao wasted too much time with Jing Yicheng in the back garden, and as a result, his cold, which was not healed, came back again;.
At the same time, Jing Yicheng also ate raw chili peppers, which made his throat which was not recovered, become even worse.

It is really amazing that after hurting each other like this, they can still sit cooperatively and drink tea together.

After waiting a few more minutes, the two assistants finally returned with the changed contracts.

Xu Chenghao looked at Li Nian, and when their eyes met, he saw the other party nod while his eyes flicked to the left.
Xu Chenghao immediately understood; no wonder the re-printing of the contract took so long; it was actually Li Nian who was not at ease and took the contract to the legal department for a check.

This can be regarded as adding another security lock to the contract, and Xu Chenghao can feel more at ease when he signs it.

After the signing was successful, the contract was divided into two and kept separately.
Xu Chenghao got up and stretched out his hand: “Happy cooperation.”


Jing Yicheng stretched out his hand and held it: “Happy cooperation.”


Xu Chenghao said, “I hope President Jing won’t let me down.”


Jing Yicheng: “Seeing is believing.”


Xu Chenghao smiled but withdrew his hand and did not speak.

He initially thought that Jing Yicheng would take the initiative to bid farewell, but the other party didn’t move at all.
He even took out his mobile phone: “It seems that we don’t have each other’s contact information since it’s the first time we cooperated.
Is it convenient to leave a number?”


Xu Chenghao thought for a while, and there seemed to be no reason to refuse, so he nodded in agreement: “Okay.”


They exchanged mobile phone numbers on the spot, and after the remarks were successful, Jing Yicheng was finally satisfied and left with his assistant.

Xu Chenghao also relaxed instantly and slumped on the office chair motionless.

Li Nian took the contract and complained: “What happened to you guys? I knocked my head again and cooperated to show sincerity……… Also why do I feel that Jing Yicheng’s face is not quite right? It feels like there’s a very shallow bite mark on the right side of his face.”

Xu Chenghao glanced at other places with a guilty conscience but did not make a sound.

Li Nian knocked on the table: “I’m talking to you.”


Xu Chenghao hurriedly coughed twice and pointed to his throat weakly, “I’ve been talking for so long, can I have some rest …… and bite marks and so on, how would I know? This is someone’s private matter, do not pry so much.”


Li Nian felt strange: “I didn’t ask you where the bite marks came from, I just told you I found it, why are you nervous.”

Li Nian found it strange, “I didn’t ask you where the bite marks came from, I just told you that I found it, what are you nervous about?”

Xu Chenghao: “I’m not nervous.”


Li Nian: “Haha.”


Xu Chenghao: “…”

Li Nian had a look of ‘I don’t know you yet,’ but in the end, he didn’t pursue the matter, “Forget it, let your throat rest for a while, you’ll be off work in an hour, be careful not to eat stimulating food and drink more water when you go home for dinner.”

Xu Chenghao was moved: “I know you are the best for me!”


Li Nian: “Shut up! Don’t try to tie a cp with me!”


Xu Chenghao: “…”

Take back the moved! !!


After work, Xu Chenghao went home to rest with his little yellow duck in his arms.
The pepper seedlings on the balcony had already bloomed.
But the several consecutive fruitless harvests made Xu Chenghao have no expectations for them, and he finished watering them in a calm manner.

The evening was quiet and calm; Xu Chenghao was sleepy after taking his cold medicine and went to bed early after washing up.

In the dark room, the phone on the bedside table suddenly rang with a short text message, and the screen lit up just in time to illuminate the pepper seedlings growing next to it.

The person in the bed was sleeping soundly, completely unaware of this little episode.
The phone’s bright screen also turned dim as no one attended to it.

A good night’s dream.

As soon as he opened his eyes the next day, Xu Chenghao saw a text message displayed on his lock screen-“Full payment has been sent.” The number note was Jing Yicheng.

Xu Chenghao squinted, thought about it for a while, and finally realized what the full payment meant… He didn’t expect that just after signing the contract yesterday afternoon, Jing Yicheng made the payment successfully in the evening, and the full amount was still remitted with great sincerity.

— just doesn’t know how this became his job when it was clearly the assistant’s job.

Could it be expressing his sincerity?!

Thinking about it, that seems to be the only reason.

Xu Chenghao rubbed his eyebrows and replied, “Okay, happy cooperation.”

The other party did not reply, and there was no movement.
Xu Chenghao put the phone back on the bedside table carelessly and got up to wash.

When he arrived at work, Li Nian also reported back about receiving the huge full amount: “The finance department said it was received last night and it was a one-time full payment, very fast.”

Xu Chenghao stuffed the oral tablet for his throat into his mouth and said vaguely, “I know, go to the department and pick a few people to organize the project team, and then contact Jing Yicheng’s side to see if they have someone they want to send over.”

Li Nian: “Okay, then the Jiang family side ……”

Xu Chenghao: “Has someone from the Jiang group come by recently?”

Li Nian: “No.
I think that with this format, the Jiang group will most likely not give up on our side, but he will sit around and raise the price, waiting for us to take the initiative to deliver.”

Xu Chenghao snorted: “If they don’t come, don’t ask.
Anyway, it’s a verbal negotiation.
If he dares to sit down and raise the price, I dare to give up and carry out this project first.”

Li Nian: “Okay.”

If yesterday, Li Nian was worried about whether he would be trapped in cooperation with Jing Yicheng, today, after confirming the receipt of the total amount, he did not panic at all and was even full of confidence.
He could drag it out with the Jiang family lying in wait.
When the project on their side is ready, he’ll see who will be anxious!

Xu Chenghao also thinks so, and he knows that the drag is not only from the Jiang family but also from the male lead Ruan Chenxuan …… who is in the company of the Jiang family.
This means that when the male lead finds out about the project, he will be on his opposing side and become a grasshopper on the same rope as the villain.
