Fangirling Chinese Novels

Blazing Sunlight I (骄阳似我 上) – Chapter 16



See, see I am not the only one who is suspicious of VP Lin’s motive in transferring Xi Guang to the Management Department. Poor XG, being made to work like a dog there. Ya, it is another of VP Lin’s tactic. My my, isn’t he cunning 😛 ?

Chapter 16

I went to the Management Department and reported for duty in a daze.

That was the department where Yin Jie was working.

The person in charge of the Management Department is called Wang Qi who is a middle-age man. The feelings he gave me was completely different from the person in charge of the Finance Department. He was very articulate. After briefing me on the matters in the Management Department, we saw Vice President Lin coming in from the main entrance. He immediately took me to meet him.

“Vice President Lin, little Nie has already officially reported for duty. How would you like to arrange her work?”

Vice President Lin did not even lift up his eyes when he said: “You arrange it.”

Wang Qi asked in a probing tone: “In that case, I’ll first arrange little Nie to go and sort out the archive room?”

Vice President Lin casually nodded his head in agreement and walked into his office.

Thus I went to sort out the archive room.

After starting, I only realized this is such a terrible job. The company’s archive has probably not been sorted properly for a long time because everything was in disorder until it cannot be described. After a long day, my head and face were filthy with grime.

The next day, Yin Jie and Yu Hua saw that I am really in a terrible shape. Hence they voluntarily stayed back after work to sort out the mess together with me.

People’s ability to adapt is really very strong. On the first day, I felt it was very dirty. However, I’ve already turned a blind eye to  the dust and so on today. Yin Jie and Yu Hua have gone to the cafeteria to buy drinks. I unconsciously sat on the floor to bind a file while humming a song. Oh, it was a song that I’ve learnt from Jiang Rui  ~~~

Hearing the sound of the door being opened, I stopped humming and without looking up, I said: “Any cover for the file? Please help me to move over the pile of covers at the doorway.”

Nothing happened.

I felt strange so I looked up and discovered that the person standing by the door turned out to be Vice President Lin.

I quickly stood up: “Vice President Lin …… sorry, I thought it is Yin Jie and Yu Hua.”

He glanced at me and reached out to take a file from the shelf. When I thought he would   leave without a word, suddenly he started to talk in a deep voice: “Are you feeling very happy?”

Previously, I was caught by him for downloading TV drama. Later, I made an error in an account and needed him to recover the money. This was a rare opportunity for me to leave a good impression, so I immediately replied with a positive attitude: “Okay la. Actually, only a bit tiring but once you get the knack of it, the sorting will be a lot faster. ”

That kind of tranquil atmosphere again.

Then I heard his chuckle. He turned and went out………

Not long after, Yin Jie and Yu Hua cheerfully pushed open the door and walked in. While walking, they said: “Vice President Lin is really a very good person, ah. When we greeted him just a moment ago, he smiled at us. Aiya, I finally understand how it feels like to be bathed in the spring breeze (a Chinese idiom meaning make somebody feel comfortable).”

Yu Hua said: “On the contrary, I don’t think he is easy to get close to ah. Just look at Jiang Ya from your department. When she was following President Zhang , she dared to smile ingratiatingly but with Vice President Lin, she dares not ah.”

“Hey, since you mentioned this, I do feel he is a little cool. However he is still very modest and has an elegant demeanor.”

I stopped working and seriously considered this for a moment —— Is the Vice President Lin that they were discussing the same person as the Vice President Lin that I know?

Three days later, I came to the conclusion that they are not the same person because he is not even a person!

Originally after the work in the archive room was  over, I thought I could relax a bit. Who would have though Vice President Lin seemed to suddenly discover my usefulness. From more or less turning a blind eye to me in the past few days, it directly jumped to become “make the best use of  her” ……

I was the one who worked overtime every day. I was also the one who ran errands everywhere. What ‘bathed in the spring breeze’, ‘modest and polite’? You think I do not understand idioms!

As a matter of fact, a female colleague had just requested leave of absence today, I was immediately called into his office ……

“The data in this report is wrong. You do it again.”

I took the report and flipped over it. I was somewhat puzzled because this is the budget report prepared by Jiang Ya. She only took leave after finishing this report so she has handed it in about ten minutes ago ……

He discovered a mistake so quickly?

“The expenditure section is incorrect. You check the data handed in by each of the departments again.”

“Vice President, it seems Jiang Ya is the one in charge of this.” I said in embarrassment, “I’ve never done this kind of report.”


“Yes.” I nodded firmly.

“Then it is time to learn.” He said very casually, “I believe you will soon get the knack of it.”

During lunch time, I specially ordered an extra meal.

Yu Hua stared at me in shock: “Xi Guang, you’re not afraid of getting fat ah.”

“I work a lot, so have to eat a lot. I am certain I have to work overtime today! Hence I am storing up some energy in advance!”

Suddenly Yin Jie moved her head close and said in a gossipy tone: “Xi Guang, when Jiang Ya left at noon, her complexion did not look good ah …… so she left in a hurry. Hence it is very normal for the Vice President to hand it over to you to do.”

I looked up from my rice bowl: “It is not just for today. How come I feel she is …….”

“A little against you, right? Hey, who told you to be hand-picked by Vice President Lin to transfer over here? She will certainly have some thoughts on it.”

Yu Hua also agreed: “Yes ah Xi Guang. All of a sudden, Vice President Lin transferred you from the Finance Department to the Management Department. Thus many people also have some thoughts.”


In fact, at the very beginning, I had already felt those speculative and ambiguous gazes from my colleagues in the company. However, when I started work in the Management Department, I was first shut in a small and dark room to sort out the archive. Then I’ve to work overtime day in and day out. These speculative and ambiguous gazes have since changed into  sympathetic or gloating.

I said helplessly: “Every day, I seem to work like an ox and a horse (work extremely hard). Therefore it is unlikely that everyone will still think like that now?”

“It is not necessarily the case. At least Jiang Ya certainly has some thoughts. Who asked Vice President Lin to always only call you to work overtime. Moreover he will also be working overtime. Hey, a bachelor and a spinster in such a large office …….”

“…… Be more clear-headed! Such a large office, so not only our department. There are people working overtime every day.”

However, Yin Jie clearly has already got caught in her little world and cannot hear the sound from the outside world. Her eyes lit up when she said: “Oh, thinking about this. Xi Guang, is Vice President Lin really interested in you?”

She looked at me up and down like she has discovered a whole new world: “Xi Guang, you are actually very pretty. Just that you are wearing work clothes every day and do not like to wear make up.”

I scooped up the rice, was silent for a moment and said: “If a man asks you what you want to eat and cooks for you, will you think this man is a little fond of you?”

Yin Jie nodded firmly: “Cooking can show the affection the best!”

Yes ah, that summer vacation, I also thought like that. I felt that he must have liked me a little. Later, I only realized that it was merely because he did not want to eat hotel take out together with me. He did not want to ‘gain some advantage from me’, nothing more ……

“Thus, imagining that one’s love is reciprocated is an illness which must be treated.”

In a split second, I did not know where this bitter taste emerged from. I picked up a piece of sweet and sour pork to resolutely suppress the bitterness. Then I put down the chopsticks and seriously declared: “I’ve decided!”

Yin Jie and Yu Hua looked at me simultaneously.

“I also want to take leave!”

  1. I feel so bad for her. And i have a feeling that he wont let her take some leave. Tsk tsk. Throw him some files or something, you know, accidentally.

  2. I was rooting for the second lead…but why is he such an S? Always bullying her…
    Thanks for this chapter!

  3. he’s such a stalker la.. working overnight to be stay at the same place with her. emm.. interesting.. i want moreee.. i will PAY more attention on this story 😛

    thanks peanuts

  4. Why do I get a feeling that VP Lin knows Xie Guang’s father and making her work hard is to let her learn the trade faster.
    It’s getting more interesting.
    Thanks as always.

    • I thought so too. Just why he transferred here is ready fishy and he really make her work from bottom level. Ship him! The problem may occur if she learn about her father action by using VP Lin. She might think that he become close to her because of her father order or something. I better stop now hahaha. My imagine run wild.

    • I am reading the novel as I am translating so I dun know if VP Lin does know Mr Nie. Stay tune to find out later.

  5. Okay, I don’t like any of the male leads in this story. Xie Guang on the other hand is exactly like Gu Man’s other female leads.
    Clueless with no talent other than being a big eater.

    I actually like Silent Separation better. It was more original.
    This story feels a bit forced? Once again, the male lead goes overboard with the stalking and bullying.

    Vice president is too calculative and manipulative. For the sake of his selfish wants, other workers have to suffer for it!
    I think I might be dropping this novel soon. :[

  6. I like the VP Lin so much better than the inexpressive ZX.

  7. She is only on her “trial period”, therefore I doubt she can take “leave” unless she is sick

  8. I missed ZX……

  9. Somehow as I read this novel, from the perspective of a woman, I dislike the father more and more. While the father has good points, the father also didn’t show any backbone. I wonder if the VP is the main guy or is it the other guy earlier….
