and bumped into my boss.
Do you remember that?” she asked.

The lady nodded.
“I do remember.
So that was your boss… Is he okay?” she answered, looking apologetic.

He Zening intended to answer yes, but instead, she decided to elaborate.
“He is fine.
He left after you spilled wine all over his suit.
He arranged for me to stay with you to make sure you wouldn’t be taken advantage of,” she said.

Even He Zening was proud of her own performance; she was dedicated to playing her part to move the story forward!

“I am really sorry.” The lady touched her pockets and remembered she did not bring her cell phone or her purse with her.
The only money in her possession was paid for her drinks.

She looked embarrassed.
“I am so sorry… I forgot to bring my purse,” she turned to He Zening, “I will pay for the dry-cleaning fees if you leave me a contact number,” she said.

“It’s no big deal.I only have to make sure you are safe,” He Zening replied.
She gave her a business card.
“My name is He Zening.
What is yours?”

“It’s nice to meet you, Miss He.
My name is Bai Yinan.”

That was a good name; a right fit for a heroine.
He Zening was satisfied.
She nodded, and smiled warmly.
“You have a pretty name.
How are you going to get home tonight?”

“I…”

Bai Yinan suddenly felt at a loss.
He Zening could see she had a conflicted look on her face.
Perhaps, something had happened at home that she’s not able to go back there.
He Zening handed over two hundred Yuan and said, “I don’t know what happened to you, but it is dangerous for a girl to stay out this late.
Go to a friend’s house or find a place to stay.”

“How can I take your money…”

“You can take it,” He Zening pushed the money to her hands.
As Bai Yinan held the money, her eyes had become slightly red and watery.
He Zening patted her on the shoulder and reassured her.
“Get some rest.
Tomorrow will be better,” she said.

“Thank you, Miss He… I am so grateful to have met you today.”

“To be accurate, you are fortunate to have met my boss.”

He Zening winked at her.
Before bidding farewell, she made sure Bai Yinan was fully awake.
Bai Yinan repeatedly pledged to pay back the money and the dry-cleaning fees tomorrow.
He Zening, of course, chose to believe her.
She wasn’t worried at all about being deceived.
Why would she? Her boss was Gu Siye!
