TOCH – Chapter 149

“Stop!” Luo Yibei’s face has darkened. He took several steps after her.

Fang Chixia did not pay attention to him. Her footsteps did not only stop, but accelerated a bit.

She ran speedily out of the villa. After coming out, she hailed a taxi, immediately got on and left.

When she arrived at the company, she was a few minutes earlier than Luo Yibei.

Shi Jinyang had also already arrived when she entered the office.

“Morning!” Seeing her, he greeted her calmly then handed her a document. “Right, this information, help me send it to Luo Yibei later!”

“Luo Yibei? Can you change for someone else go…” Fang Chixia was startled when Shi Jinyang directly rejected her request as he actually turned around and returned to his office.

Fang Chixia felt helpless as she collected the material.

They were in one company and Luo Yibei now knows of her affairs. Meeting him from time to time would be inevitable.

Fang Chixia took out her mobile phone and looked at the time. After fifteen minutes, she estimated that Luo Yibei should have arrived at the company and took the information out of the office.

Luo Yibei’s office was a bit far from the floor where she works and she needed to walk for a while.

Fang Chixia has never been to his side so was unfamiliar with the place. She had to ask for directions from people she passed by.

By the time she reached his office, he wasn’t there but was in a conference room with an old man.

Seeing her suddenly, he froze for a few seconds, and his eyes turned to the old man around.

The old man was still staring at the map of Southern France on the table top, and did not notice her.

Fang Chixia has no knowledge of his identity so after only a glance in his direction, she held the information towards Luo Yibei. “This is what Master Shi asked me to send over.”

Luo Yibei received the material in her hand readily. He and Luo Enqi were discussing the purchase contracts for the acquisition of all small commercial towns in Southern France.

He was a little busy so he didn’t say much.

“I’ll head out first!” Fang Chixia has a tacit understanding with him. After delivering the documents, she turned to leave. The map in Luo Enqi’s hand inadvertently caught her attention.

That map was marked with all the valuable commercial towns in the south of France and also the targets of Rongxi’s acquisition.

The town in Southern France is a very famous tourist attraction. This acquisition was planned by Luo Yibei ready to expand the market of Rongxi.

Fang Chixia fixed her eyes on the map and examined it again. Her eyebrows screwed up doubtfully and her footsteps couldn’t help but stop.

“What’s the matter?” At the corner of his eyes, Luo Yibei caught sight of her reaction and asked very casually.

Fang Chixia surveyed the map again, then peered at the contracts resting beside it. At the glimpse of the line about all commercial small towns in Southern France, she pointed out seriously, “This map has problems. Like the perfume town, Grasse, it can indeed bring about a certain economy. However, if you do not plan to develop a tourist area, like Castle in the Sky, there is basically no sense in considering the town of Provence.”

  1. Hmm… Will the author explain where MC gets her smarts from? I mean, she’s a very young adult, still at college… I get it that she’s a gifted linguist but this kind of business/economic/real estate knowledge is rather unbelievable 😄
    Thanks translator-san for the chappie. There used to be two chapters each update… Have you been too busy?


    1. Well, she did travel with a teacher to Italy, maybe a school trip, that and some common sense that tourist towns need tourist; it’s really just how a person learns or translate things.


  2. Smart but geographically challenged since Fontainbleau is near Paris and not in the South of France !! I’m from France and I know Fontainbleau is really well know, I don’t understand how she got it wrong !

    Liked by 1 person

      1. Oh I see! But I should warn you that the Provence is a region and not a city !! If u have any question, don’t hesitate to ask me, I would help you 😉


      2. I’ll do that. Thank you very much 🙂 My Chinese reading and vocabulary is really poor so my translation isn’t that accurate. Excuse those please 🙂
