I Have the Halo of Overbearing President - chapter 172
The reason was that his experience in school was average and his memories were not particularly good. He was burdened by debts and he did have a lot of trouble during the student stage which caused a lot of gossip.
Although based on Zhang Jianian’s current experience, it was all a small mess between some classmates, but some things were like trash. Even if they settled in the bottom of the water, it did not mean that they disappeared.
The class reunion was in a large private room of a restaurant. There were two large tables in the room and half of the people had already arrived. When everyone saw Zhang Jianian entering the room, they were dazed. He was handsome and polite, and the years hadn’t cut him down.
Everyone was in the same year, but the circumstances were quite different. Some people got married and had children long ago and had their children; some people had become popular small business owners; some people lived ordinary days and found a stable job; others’ life was bad and did not even attend the party.
“Mr. Zhang is here, this is definitely the big boss! Hurry up and invite him in!” The people around shouted.
No one thought that the young man who was heavily indebted that year would be an executive of a famous company. Zhang Jianian’s experience was inspiring among ordinary people. He now met with business leaders every day and his network resources were even more extraordinary, so he was naturally warmly welcomed by his old classmates.
Zhang Jianian humbly greeted him and asked, “Is Teacher Chen here?”
The main purpose of him going there was to meet his teacher. Teacher Chen helped him a lot back then and Zhang Jianian was grateful to him. However, Teacher Chen took the third grade class all year round and Zhang Jianian often worked overtime. It was really difficult for two busy people to meet.
“Mr. Chen will arrive in a while, let’s talk first!”
Although it was a gathering of the whole class, everyone gathered together forming different groups after entering. The little boss who started a business in the class saw Zhang Jianian sitting alone, waved to him and said with a smile, “Mr. Zhang, come here.”
Most of the people around the little boss were successful in their careers. They were all high-spirited and belonged to the “successful people”. They invited Zhang Jianian to form a team and wanted to make a chat group called “Classmate Reunion”.
Zhang Jianian politely declined, “No, I am fine sitting here.”
The little boss was refused and his smile inevitably diminished. He raised his chin and smiled, “What would you talk to them about? They are all interested in children!”
Zhang Jianian acted as if he didn’t hear his ridicule and said calmly, “I happen to be interested in parenting recently.”
The little boss looked stiff. The female classmate next to him helped out and said fiercely, “What’s wrong with talking about children? If you have the ability, why don’t you give birth?! You dare to look down on us?”
“Jianian, how old is your child? Is he in kindergarten?” The married female classmate asked enthusiastically. She just wanted to pull Jianian into the “married group”.
“When did you get married and have children? Why didn’t you tell us?” Someone wondered.
It was not easy to explain. He thought about Chu Chu’s way of thinking and said ambiguously, “He is not too big, just in kindergarten.”
“They are just lawless! I tell you, what my daughter sometimes does, I can’t even think of it. She doesn’t play cards according to the routine…”
Zhang Jianian was drawn into their conversation and felt a sense of resonance.
He inadvertently glanced, just in time to see the familiar figure outside the private room flashed by, like a naughty kid who played cards in a very unconventional way. He got up immediately and apologized, “I’m sorry, I’ll be out for a while.”
Under the guidance of the waiter, Chu Chu came looking for Mr. Zhang. She did not know which room they were in.
Zhang Jianian hurriedly left, leaving the others staring at each other.
As soon as Zhang Jianian left, the little boss took off the hypocritical mask and sarcastically said, “Did you really think he was in the mood to listen to you talking about that? How can someone who climbed the high branch be like us?”
“Don’t talk nonsense? Don’t mention that bad thing back then!” The female classmate was furious, “You are just jealous so you said it. You spread his gossip in the school. Now you are rushing to fawn over him. Your face changes fast enough!”
The little boss was pierced by someone and got irritated, “Who fawned over him? He is just working for someone else and regards himself as a boss. Which boss have you ever seen take employees seriously?”
“Those who are really good now have already jumped out to work alone, who would stay as a subordinate?!” The little boss’s words became more vigorous. He finally stood up quite arrogantly, as if he was the benchmark for successful entrepreneurship.
“Well, don’t say these words, why make trouble at the party?”
The others played as peacemakers.
On the other side, Zhang Jianian quickly found Chu Chu, who was following him and said, “President Chu, why are you here?”
When Chu Chu heard the familiar voice, she stiffened. She slowly turned her head and found Zhang Jianian staring at her face expressionlessly. Chu Chu showed superb acting skills, “Oh, what a coincidence, are you here for dinner?”
Zhang Jianian nodded, then frowned and asked, “Have you finished your work?”
Chu Chu said boldly, “I’m doing it.”
Zhang Jianian asked suspiciously, “You left the company to do it?”
Chu Chu said, “The catering industry seems too good these days, so I came to take a look at it. This restaurant is good and it’s probably suitable for investment.”
Zhang Jianian vomited, “…This is the restaurant under Shiyan, the group in which you sold 1% of the shares.”
She did not make up any manuscripts and did not check the information.
Chu Chu’s lie was exposed in a second. She tried lying again and said, “Then I can buy back the shares again!”
Zhang Jianian: “…”
Was the matter not made big enough? If Shi Group learned of this, Director Shi would exit from the group chat.
