One Can’t Judge by Appearance #80

Hey, first of all, thanks for reading my lousy translation. To be honest, I’d really like it if you guys corrected the mistakes I made. But please speak nicely and politely. My heart is not strong enough to read your too-harsh comments. Have a nice day.

Chapter 80

After discussing the publicity strategy with friends in the group, Yan Xi took out the tablet and started to draw the manuscript. Before discussing with the editor of the publishing house to publish another picture book, she drew some manuscripts intermittently, but due to being too busy with work, the manuscripts were not delivered smoothly.

At the beginning, she drew this kind of small comics just to cheer up her seriously ill mother. Now it has become her hobby. If someone likes her paintings and can be touched by the characters in he  made, her heart is full of joy .

After drawing for a while, she rubbed her eyes, got up and went downstairs to get herself a glass of water. When she passed by Song Hai’s study, she found that the light was still on, so she knocked on the door: “Dad, are you still awake?”

“Yan Yan.” Song Hai turned his head to look at his daughter standing at the door, and took off the glasses on the bridge of his nose, “I’ll go to sleep after reading these documents.”

Yan Xi went downstairs and poured another glass of water for Song Hai: “Don’t stay up too long, your body is important.”

Song Hai smiled and put down the pen in his hand, turned around and looked at Yan Xi: “Are you participate in Yuan Yi’s game conference today?”

Yan Xi nodded: “Well, I went to the scene to watch it, the game is quite interesting.”

“Those old friends of mine asked this afternoon when your wedding date is set.” Song Hai shook his head helplessly and said with a smile, “It’s fine for these old guys to urge their children to get married at their home. But at our home, we are not really in a rush.”

“Don’t you usually play together, maybe they just care about it kindly.” Yan Xi put the cup on Song Hai’s left hand, “But I have no plans to get married yet.”

“No confidence in Yuan Yi?” Song Hai asked with a smile. He has watched today’s interview video. That boy Yuan Yi obviously wants to marry his daughter, and So Hai can see Yuan Yi is worried that the media will say that his daughter is a high-ranking and money-worshipping girl, so he decided to speak out first to prevent the media from having a chance to speculate.

“He is very nice. It’s not that I don’t have confidence in him. I’m very happy to be with him. I don’t have to pretend to be a lady, and he doesn’t talk about his background. Although he likes to talk about what a big man should be, he usually talks withmr. When we gets along, he will always arrange everything and will not touch my sensitive point.” Yan Xi smiled, “He looks a little fierce, but he is a very gentle man in his heart, gentle and lovely.”

“I didn’t expect you to have such a high opinion of him.” Song Hai felt a little uncomfortable. Seeing that the most important man in his daughter’s heart was about to become someone else, it was not easy for him as a father to adjust his mentality. “He is so good in your heart, why don’t you want to get married yet?”

“When I think about sharing a big bed and my privacy with others, I feel a little at a loss.” Yan Xi sat down on the sofa, her voice was a little erratic, “Dad, do you think there is something wrong with me?”

“Yan Yan, is it because I divorced your mother that you are afraid of marriage?” Song Hai felt a little sad. Although he and Yan Yun tried their best to treat their children well, their divorce still had an impact on Yan Yan.

“Dad, what do you want to talk about?” Yan Xi didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “Although you and Mom are divorced, you two love me a lot, why would I fear marriage because of this. I just… ” Yan Xi smiled helplessly, “It’s just that I’m not used to sharing my bed and life with another adult, I’m afraid I won’t be able to adapt.”

“Silly girl, if you are not used to living with him, you can go back to Dad’s place.”

Yan Xi: Dad, is it really okay for you to be like this? You are like a suspected of sowing discord.

At this moment, Yan Xi suddenly felt that maybe her father didn’t want her to get married that much, but just asked a few words.

“I’m joking with you.” Seeing his daughter’s helpless face, Song Hai couldn’t help laughing, “Since you have thought about living with him, what are you not used to? It means that you have already started to imagine marrying him in your mind. It’s possible.”

Yan Xi was stunned upon hearing this.

“If you really don’t want to live with him for the rest of your life, why would you think about these issues?” Song Hai laughed, “You usually  a very clever child, how come you are confused whenyou encounters your own problem?”

“It’s all because he mentions marriage when he has nothing to do, that’s why I think about this kind of thing.” Yan Xi said annoyingly, “Dad, I’m going to sleep.”

It was rare to see his daughter showing a shy look in front of him, Song Hai happily watched her leave the study in a hurry. But thinking that his daughter was shy because of other brats, Song Hai felt uncomfortable. The two emotions fought for countless rounds in his heart. In the end, he forced to close the folders together. He was in a complicated mood tonight and was not suitable for work.

As the saying goes, if you are proud of love, you will always be disappointed in some aspects. Yan Xi and the program team spent a lot of effort to produce a good parent-child education episode. Because some superiors felt that the topic was too sensitive, the original plan to broadcast on Wednesday night was temporarily shelved.

For the next few days, Yan Xi and her colleagues in the program team were trying to figure out how to make the episode pass the review of the above. Sometimes when shetoo busy browsing online, she see a lot of advertisements about the mobile game developed by Yuan Yi Company. On her Weibo homepage and circle of friends, some people start to play this game, and even recommend it to others sincerely.

Yan Xi… Yan Xi inexplicably felt a little proud, and almost couldn’t help scrolling through Moments and comment, the game you play was developed by my boyfriend’s company. Fortunately, she was still sane, and she didn’t make such a show of affection to the point of being beaten.

Within a few days, even some colleagues in the station started playing this game. A few colleagues who were familiar with her asked if she could help them get a few gift package verification codes for the sake of their connection.

Of course Yan Xi… could only agree to them with a smile.

These verification code gift packs are originally a means for publicity. The gift packs given away for players in the illusion of being cheap. When they devote themselves to the game, their wallets will no longer be controlled by them.

So the colleagues were happy, and Yan Xi found that her interpersonal relationship had risen to a new level.

The friendship exchanged for the game verification code package is really dumbfounding.

Even Xiao Yang is addicted to the world of games. If she hadn’t had professional ethics, she might be able to play with her mobile phone all day long.

In order to be able to broadcast this episode of the program about education of parent-child relationship, Chen Pei and Yan Xi said a lot of good things in front of the superiors, and found out a lot of national propaganda policies, and finally persuaded the superiors to let this episode broadcast normally.

After the episode was approved to be broadcast, the program group replaced the content of the episode to be broadcast the next day, and replaced it with the first episode of education of parent-child relationship.

In the afternoon, when Yan Xi went to the studio to record a show with Shen Xingyan, she met Zhao Wantong in the corridor. Compared with the last time they met, Zhao Wantong seemed to be thinner again, but her eyes looked bright, and she walked with more energy.

“Yan, Yan Xi,” Zhao Wantong called her, with a somewhat uncomfortable expression, “I heard that the latest episode of your show has sensitive topics.”

“Ah?” Yan Xi didn’t expect her to care about the content of her program, and said after being slightly surprised, “Fortunately, it’s not considered sensitive content, but after the episode is broadcast, it may cause some controversy.”

“It’s true that a newborn calf is not afraid of tigers. When the audience scolds you, don’t feel wronged and want to cry.” Zhao Wantong turned her head awkwardly, not looking at Yan Xi, “In our business, if you are not careful, you will be criticized by the audience. You still too little experience.”

Seeing her uncomfortable appearance, Yan Xi smiled and asked, “Are you concerned about me?”

“I don’t care about you. Don’t be too sentimental.” Zhao Wantong snorted and left without looking back.

Yan Xi stared at her back for a while, and couldn’t help laughing out loud.

The more she cooperates with Shen Xingyan, the more Yan Xi realizes her own lack of ability. The status of the host of the Imperial Capital TV station is not for nothing.

“You have made great progress recently.” Shen Xingyan sat in front of the makeup mirror and asked the makeup artist to remove her makeup. “In terms of language processing, you have matured a lot.”

“Without Sister Chen, I would not have learned so much.” Yan Xi sincerely thanked Shen Xingyan, “Thank you very much.”

“You’re welcome, you have to be able to comprehend yourself, otherwise, even if I teach you by ear every day, you won’t make much progress.” Recently, there have been frequent media rumors that Yan Xi and Yuan Yi’s marriage is approaching, and she thought that Yan Xi had recently lose her motivation to host a good show. She didn’t expect herself to be wrong. Yan Xi not only took every episode seriously, but also grew at a speed visible to the naked eye.

If she met Yan Xi ten years ago, she might not have such a peaceful mind, because this kind of talent is too enviable.

After the two of them took off their makeup, Yan Xi saw Shen Xingyan pick up a phone call, maybe her fingers accidentally touched the screen, and turned on the hands-free call. Yan Xi heard a male voice coming from the other end of the phone, and she somehow felt that this male voice sounded familiar. However, Shen Xingyan quickly turned off the hands-free function, so she didn’t have any clues about this. Most importantly, she didn’t like prying into the privacy of people around her, so she turned around and forgot about it.

Back at the office that Channel 8 arranged for her, Yan Xi glanced at the listless succulent on her desk, and at the gloomy sky outside. It was said on the Internet that if the succulents were not in good spirits and just basked in the sun. Where does the sun come from in this kind of weather? Will it be frozen to death if she move it outside?

Thinking about messy things in her mind, Yan Xi watched the program planning for the next few episodes of “Those Things Around Us”, and chose two that she was interested in, and planned to shoot the material herself.

Just after making a rough idea, there was a knock on the office door, and a colleague from the advertising department came in.

Yan Xi felt dizzy when she saw her colleagues in the advertising department. She held up the documents to cover her face: “Pretty Sister, I’m very busy today.”

“You won’t be asked to help us cooperate today,” the colleague from the advertising department said with a smile. “Our department has dinner tonight, and you can be regarded as our department’s foreign aid after all, so our department director specially asked me to invite you.”

“Pretty Sister, what a coincidence, I have an appointment today, you understand.” Yan Xi cast a loving look at the other party.

“I understand, I understand.” The colleagues in the advertising department did not insist, “Then I will call you next time.”

After seeing off the colleagues in the advertising department, Yan Xi checked the time and prepared to go home. In fact, she has no appointment with Yuan Yi tonight. Yuan Yi has been so busy these days that he often forgets to eat. Fortunately, she remembered to order him a nutritious meal, otherwise he would have had a stomach attack.

But Yan Xi found that every time she lied, the lie would come true. Looking at Xu Ya standing outside the gate, Yan Xi deeply regretted that she didn’t understand the essence of the story “Wolf is Coming”.

Once upon a time there was a child who was fond of lying, and later he was eaten by wolves.

Yan Xi really wanted to pretend she didn’t see anything, and walked past Xu Ya. But Xu Ya stopped her, obviously coming to see her specially.

“Miss Yan, can we find a place to sit down and talk?” Xu Ya held the bag in one hand, and kept flicking the fine hair on her sideburns with the other hand, she was nervous.

Yan Xi nodded.

Xu Ya breathed a sigh of relief, and when she turned to leave, she even sprained her ankle. If Yan Xi hadn’t helped her in time, she would probably have fallen.

“Thank you.” Xu Ya thanked Yan Xi awkwardly, Yan Xi smiled and said nothing.

Yan Xi didn’t take Xu Ya’s car, and Xu Ya didn’t seem to insist. She got into Yan Xi’s car and asked her driver to drive behind.

The car drove for a long distance, and after a long silence, Xu Ya forced out a sentence: “Miss Yan is so capable that she can even drive by herself.”

“Nowadays many girls can drive by themselves,” Yan Xi stopped at the intersection of traffic lights, “Auntie don’t need praised it.”

“That’s right.” Xu Ya laughed a few times, and the awkward atmosphere in the car resumed again.

In the end, the two found a quiet teahouse to sit down. Sitting upstairs, you can see the rockery downstairs and the koi pond. Xu Ya seems to like this environment very much. Yan Xi feels that the behavior of the other party has become natural a lot of.

She thought that Xu Ya would pay her a sum of money to let her leave Yuan Yi, but the two of them sat for an hour, Xu Ya only talked about how good her relationship with her husband was, how guilty she was for ignoring the child before, and now she regrets it and so on.

Yan Xi doesn’t quite understand her intentions. If parents feel regretful, they should try their best to make up for the hurt children. What’s the use of talking to her as a girlfriend? But seeing the other party’s interest in talking unabated, Yan Xi silently continued drink the tea for the other party.

“The house is deserted now, Xiaoer has moved out, and the eldest doesn’t like to come back.” Xu Ya lowered her eyes and sighed, “Miss Yan, you have a good relationship with the Xiaoer, he will definitely listen to you. You… …Can you help me persuade him not to be angry with us anymore, his father didn’t mean to say those words. His father wants to save face, so it’s not good to apologize in front of his son, but I know he has regretted it. “

Xu Ya didn’t say what Yuan Yi’s father said, but she guessed that these words probably had something to do with her, otherwise Xu Ya would have said it, instead of being so vague now.

“Aunt Xu, although I am a junior who is not very sensible, but I think that in this kind of thing, the person who unties the bell must be the one who tied the bell. If there is any misunderstanding or fault between you and Yuan Xiaoer, you should solve it yourself , I think… it is impossible for me to persuade him. “

“Why?” Xu Ya looked at Yan Xi puzzled, “Don’t you want to see Xiaoer’s family harmony?”

“Everyone has relatives and estrangements. If I really want to participate in this kind of thing, I will stand by Yuan Xiaoer’s side instead of talking for you.” Yan Xi picked up the teacup and took a sip, “Actually, I started from the beginning. In the end, not participating in this matter is already because my good family education does not allow me to do so.”

Otherwise, because Yuan’s parents removed Yuan Xiaoer Changfeng’s management authority, causing him to be seen as a joke by netizens, she would not have given Yuan’s couple a good face. But she will not say some things to sow discord, so that Yuan Xiaoer completely broke with his parents.

Xu Ya was stunned, she stared at Yan Xi for a while, but she didn’t get angry, she nodded after a while and said: “That’s right, everyone likes to be close to their own people, there is nothing wrong with you.”

“Sorry, I’m the one who disturbed Miss Yan today.” Xu Ya stood up, “Although we had some unpleasant troubles with Xiaoer before, but I and his father will no longer interfere in the affairs between you and Xiaoer. Please rest assured, Miss Yan.”

When going down the stairs, Yan Xi helped Xu Ya again.

“Miss Yan, you are a very good girl.” Xu Ya got into the car, turned around and asked Yan Xi, “But you really don’t plan to change jobs?”

“I think this job is pretty good now, so I don’t need to change it.” Yan Xi smiled politely.

Xu Ya was a little disappointed, but thinking of what her father said, she didn’t say anything, got in the car and left in silence.

Yan Xi stood there for a few minutes, then turned around and walked into a nearby restaurant with a good reputation. After packing the food, she drove to Hengtai Company.

The building of Hengtai’s head office was well-built. Yan Xi parked her car. As soon as she walked to the gate of the company, the security guard at the gate gave her a salute. She bowed her head and returned the salute before entering the hall.

There were two young and beautiful girls at the front desk. When they saw Yan Xi appearing, they were stunned for a moment, and then greeted her with glowing eyes: “Miss Yan, are you here to visit Mr. Yuan?”

“Yes.” Yan Xi smiled at the two little girls, “Thanks for your hard work.”

The girl at the front desk smiled and told Yan Xi where Yuan Yi was now. After Yan Xi walked into the elevator, they were still waving to Yan Xi.

Arriving at the destination floor, Yan Xi can see hurriedly walking employees everywhere. These people wear neat professional suits, work badges on their chests, and she is carrying a thermos bucket. She looks a bit out of place in front of these company worker.

However, these company worker looked at her with gentle eyes, and the overall atmosphere made people feel very comfortable.

Yan Xi came to Yuan Yi’s office, the office was ajar, she was standing outside the door, just in time to see him standing face to face with a beautiful woman.
