“Congratulations for your award, Miss Xia. Do you feel like saying something?” The host asked politely.
Yaxin wore a yellow darling bias gown that day. Her silky black hair with mild natural perm raffled gently in the breeze and she held a pleasant smile tirelessly. She lifted her slender crystal trophy and moved her lips to the microphone, “Yes I do. First of all I must thank my tutors and all my supporters. This recognition does not belong only to me, but to each and every one that supports me. Thank you so much!”
Well, a minimalistic, but pertinent speech.
The host continued on, “This award is an esteemed honour, an admirable acknowledgement! May we know what are the future plans for Miss Xia?”
The question brought her mind off. She recollected herself and responded, “Actually, I have decided to return to my home country. I plan to work for the Yun Rui Corporation!”
Her response threw the audience into a commotion.
The Yunrui Corporation had been a rising star for the past two years. In merely one year after being listed, they showed unequalled results and were authentically promising. However, this novelty of newly developed company does not justify her ditching her golden ticket in London and fly back!
Yaxin made no further response and left the stage.
The following day.
10am. City A arrival hall.
Xia Yaxin strolled along with her luggage. She was wearing a gigantic shade as an attempt to cover up her face. However, her slender figure and outstandingly fine temperament still caught a lot of attention.
Yaxin lowered her shades and gaze gluttonously at the nostalgic view, feeling joyous.
At last! After two long years, I am finally back!
Yaxin took a breath and ambled off.
She arrived at her pre-booked suite, collected her keys and settled in. It took her less than half a day to tidy up a cozy place. She had become independent and headstrong after these two years.
Just when she was about to unwind, her phone vibrated.
“Hey Yaxin, have you reached!?”
It was Tuan Tuan, an adored childhood friend of hers. Her bestie that she held more darling than blood.
“You kidding me? Calling now after all the hard labour is finished!?” Yaxin lolled on the couch, trying to catch a break.
“Sorry babe~ I was too occupied…” Tuan said coyly.
Upon hearing her sweet voice Yaxin couldn’t help but giggle, “Alright, you are pardoned!”
“When do you plan to start work?” Tuan Tuan asked.
“Great! Dinner tonight, we gotta celebrate!”
“Catch ya later, bye.”
Ending the call, Yaxin reclined on the couch and treated herself a little shut off. However she was too weary from all the travelling and eventually fell sound asleep.
Yaxin’s rest was interrupted by a sudden call. She drowsily picked it up, “Yes...?”
“Miss Xia, I am calling from the HR department of Yunrui Corp. May I ask if you will commence work tomorrow?”
“Yes I will.” Yaxin confirmed, feeling more attentive.
“Perfect! Please proceed directly to the HR department upon reaching the company. Thank you.”
“Noted. Thank you.”
Ending the short conversation, Yaxin did a lazy stretch and checked the time. It was already night time.
Just when she was about to give Tuan Tuan a call, her doorbell rang. Thus Yaxin stood up, gently tidy her dress and slide over to open the door.
“Xia Yaxin!!” Tuan pounced on her as soon as the door was opened, full of exhilaration.
Yaxin was made jolly too, “I thought you will be occupied again!”
“Even if the sky falls, I will still come for you my darling! Let’s go, my treat!”
Yaxin nodded with a satisfying grin, she quickly wore a pair of sneakers and followed along.
“Oh right. Yaxin, you returning… Aren’t you afraid to bump into Mu Haoyu?!” Tuan suddenly blurted out during dinner.
