Chapter 273: Idol and his Silly Fangirl (1)
Zhao Youlin’s sudden call caught Li by surprise. By the time she recovered her senses, she hurriedly said solemnly, “General Manager, what is your order?”
Zhao Youlin passed the newspaper over to her. “Hand the newspaper over to the president, and tell him that the company’s accountant could hand in his resignation since he failed to even notice things like this in our company’s accounts when the others could easily identify the flaws with a single glance.”
Li received the newspaper and cast a cursory glance at it. Her expression looked troubled.
She turned around and was about to leave the office. Just then, Zhao Youlin had a sharp eye, and she caught sight of another newspaper.
“Eh, why does this newspaper look so old? Is it today’s newspaper?”
“Oh, that one…” Right after Zhao Youlin spoke, Li’s face turned red, and she went over to grab the newspaper in a flurry of motion. She looked so bashful, as if she had been caught doing something bad. Seeing this, Zhao Youlin was struck dumb.
Of course, Li lacked the skills if she wanted to grab her things back from Zhao Youlin’s hand.
Zhao Youlin casually sidled the newspaper away and dodged her outstretched hand. She cocked one of her eyebrows, and asked, “Is there anything in the newspaper that you don’t want others to find out?”
“N-No…Nothing…” Li’s face turned red. She said in a panic, “General Manager, that newspaper… was dated two months ago. I did not pay attention to it when I was organizing them just now, so I accidentally sorted them together with today’s newspapers. Please return to me.”
“Newspaper dated two months ago?” Zhao Youlin quirked one of her eyebrows. She looked at her teasingly. “You kept the newspapers dated two months ago for so long that you’re still not reluctant to throw them away even today. Yet, you still said there’s nothing inside, huh? Let me find the secret within.”
“Ahh… Don’t!” Li did not want to give up even though her chances were slim. She reached out to grab but each time, Zhao Youlin avoided her.
Once Zhao Youlin flipped open the newspapers, its headlines printed in big font came into her view.
“The capital chain of the Sheng Shi Group limited corporation is broken. The president, Han Yichen has gone missing.” Zhao Youlin read out the content in the newspaper in a low voice. She unwittingly frowned. The president’s name sounded familiar.
“Han Yichen… Han Yichen… Han Yichen… Wait… his name…”
Zhao Youlin felt like she had been struck by lightning, and she became stupefied on the spot.
While Zhao Youlin was in a daze, Li quickly grabbed back her things. She was about to dash out with her reddening face but was stopped by Zhao Youlin.
Li stiffened. She widened her eyes and looked at Zhao Youlin innocently. She said timidly, “General Manager, is there anything else?”
Zhao Youlin walked out from her office desk and took the newspaper from Li under her nervous gaze. After making sure she had not misread it, she faked a cough and said, “Li, do you know the president of Sheng Shi Group?”
Li nodded. The next moment, she hurriedly shook her head.
“So, do you know him or not?”
“I know him, but he doesn’t know me.”
Li looked so shy as if she could not wait to dig a hole and bury herself. Looking at this, Zhao Youlin’s heart clutched, and she asked tentatively, “Li, do you like President Han?”
If so… If Han Yichen was really the staff working in her outlet, judging from the bizarre atmosphere between An Yue and him, Li might…
Right after Zhao Youlin spoke, Li immediately refuted her, “No, no, no! I don’t like him, I’m just obsessed with him. My obsession with him is no more than a fangirl idolizing her idol! Han Yichen is my idol, and I’m his ardent fangirl!”
Zhao Youlin fell speechless. “Alright, then.” It seemed like she had worried too much.
Zhao Youlin heaved a sigh of relief. She nodded, and said, “Since you’re his fangirl, I suppose you have a photo of President Han, right? Let me have a look. I want to see what President Han looks like, if he could get my secretary so twisted up.”
Originally, Li was a little reluctant. On second thought, since she had been discovered, she might as well have revealed everything. She took out her phone and zoomed in on the profile picture of her Twitter account, and said, “General Manager, look, this is my idol!”
Indeed, the man was her idol to the extent that she had even uploaded his photo as her profile picture!
If not for the fact that a strange creature called “fangirl” actually existed in this world, Zhao Youlin would have suspected Li secretly admired him.
Zhao Youlin followed the direction of Li’s hand and looked at the familiar face on her screen.
The man in the photo was wearing a formal suit. He did not show much expression on his handsome face. However, his features were deep-set. This was especially so for his… eyes.
The moment Zhao Youlin saw his eyes, she was even more convinced that the man in the photo, the ex-president of Sheng Shi Group, was the same man whom An Yue had taken back to her outlet.
‘No wonder the name sounds familiar to me. So, this is the reason why.’
Zhao Youlin had heard of Sheng Shi Group. It was a new financial bond company. The company had progressed rapidly within three years. It was said that two partners owned the company. The owners were only in their early twenties. Despite this, they ruled the company with iron fists, this was especially so for Han Yichen who held the majority shares.
There was a time when various well-known magazine publishers in Shalnork fought to report news about Han Yichen. When Zhao Youlin was working in the police force, she saw his image published as the cover page of magazines several times. She never thought a great man like him would fall from grace, and to her great misfortune, he had been taken back by her staff to her own outlet.
“General Manager, General Manager…” While Zhao Youlin was in a daze, Li noticed she had been staring at the photo for a long time without any response, she could not help but shout at her several times.
Zhao Youlin was snapped out of her daze, and she perfunctorily replied to her, “He looks quite handsome. No wonder you like him so much.”
As soon as Zhao Youlin praised her idol, Li got hyped up. “Like I said, right?! My idol is so handsome that even gods are jealous of his good looks. Look at his face, he looks flawless from every single angle. He’s simply perfect! Not forgetting his figure, he’s tall and slim. His net height is 188.015 cm! He has the golden ratio of a perfect body and looks good in any clothes. Even the international models have to bow before him!”
Zhao Youlin fell speechless. ‘188.015cm is an unbelievable figure. How did you guys come up with it, and to be so accurate to the point of even getting the three decimal points?!’
