Chapter 1097: The Qin Couple Flaunts Their Love 8
Chief Cao didn't think that Huo Mian, who always appeared as an easy going person, would be so bold and daring, hitting all the critical points with her words.
Actually, Director Wu wasn't in charge of promoting nurses, but if someone really reported this incident to him, it would become difficult to deal with. After all, Chief Cao did accept some bribes.
"Ahem＃ Uh, Chief Huo, why don't you take a seat. We'll sort it out, no hurries."
"No, we're all busy people. I'm here to get to the end of it. If I don't get a satisfactory answer, I'll ask Director Wu myself." After speaking, Huo Mian got up to leave.
It scared Chief Cao into rising immediately...
"Chief Huo, wait for a second please."
"What's wrong?" Huo Mian asked despite knowing the answer.
"Actually, Chief Huo, the nurse from your department has good performance. I was going to promote her with the next batch of nurses because we're out of spots this time around. But, I just remembered that we have one more spot. I'll give it to her, alright?"
Huo Mian pretended to be troubled and said, "That won't be fair. After all, my assistant hasn't been employed for that long."
"It's been a while, I messed up the time. Haha, I was really busy and was confused, Chief Huo, don't mind me."
"But she doesn't have enough experience though, right?" Huo Mian purposefully asked.
"What? I'm sure your assistant is excellent just like you. Chief Huo, it's decided, I'll give the last spot to your assistant, Chen Jie. Then, you don't have to trouble the director. We're all busy people," Chief Cao said this in a vague manner, but Huo Mian immediately knew what she meant...
She nodded. "If that's so＃ I really have to thank you."
"No, no, you're welcome. Just speak up if you need anything."
After thanking Huo Mian and seeing her out, Chief Cao finally let out a long breath of relief.
Huo Mian was practically a vengeful goddess; she was too scary.
Actually, Huo Mian didn't have to deal with the chief of the human resources department anyways, she could've just asked Director Wu to directly resolve this issue.
However, she wouldn't do that. Instead of forcing people into a dead end, she always showed mercy when she could.
No matter who took over that position, bribery was inevitable. She wouldn't be overly sympathetic for everyone that was not being treated fairly, nor would she condemn others on God's behalf.
The only thing she wanted to do was to make sure that her people didn't suffer.
It didn't matter if Chief Cao's words about the last spot were true, she knew that Chen Jie would be all set.
One should strive and fight for what they needed to fight for and shouldn't be too meek nor arrogant. That was Huo Mian.
She always stuck to her plans and the rules she lived by, whether the others liked it or not.
After seeing two patients that afternoon and working for a while, she got off work. Before she could call Qin Chu, however, she saw him walk up to her.
"Honey, why are you here?"
"I'm here to pick you up, we're going to a dinner party," Qin Chu said.
"Is it business related?"
"You can say so. It's a high-class wine party, but you know the host."
"Who is it?"
"Rick," Qin Chu said.
"The owner of Seductive Fox?" Huo Mian was a little surprised.
"Mhm, Rick's family has connections with both the black and white sides. Today's the year-end party of Seductive Fox, and I think many influential people are going."
"Mhm, I'll quickly pack up and get ready."
Huo Mian left the hospital and got on Qin Chu's car. Because she didn't really like makeup, she just changed into the caramel-colored cocktail dress that Qin Chu brought her. It was both formal and cute.
As soon as the two got to the hotel, the media surrounded them and began taking pictures.
Qin Chu held Huo Mian's waist tightly in front of everyone.
"President Qin, a source says that Mrs. Qin is pregnant, is that true?"
After hearing that question, Huo Mian felt a little embarrassed.
