Fang Tong heard the words, and felt a little embarrassed, “Dad, the end of the year is coming soon, and he often works overtime at his company until late at night, I’m afraid…”

Fang Chengzhi understood, smiled, and didn’t care about it, “Then let’s wait for the next year.”

After coaxing his daughter, Fang Chengzhi went up to coax his wife, and sure enough, his wife was sitting beside the bed crying.

“People who are tens of years old, how can they cry golden beans? When their daughter sees them, she wouldn’t be able to help herself from laughing at you.”

When Fu Fanghua heard this, she exploded again, “It’s your precious daughter, I really raised her for nothing for so many years.”

“Yes, yes, it’s all my fault. I didn’t take good care of my daughter and my wife was wronged. I’ll teach her a lesson now.” Fang Chengzhi was about to go out to find Fang Tong to settle the account.

“Hey, come back.” Fu Fanghua grabbed him, “She’s still a child, what did you say she did, I feel wronged right now, and it’ll be all right in a while.”

Fang Chengzhi pushed the boat along the flow, “It’s really all right. Is it?”

Fu Fanghua rolled her eyes at him, “If something happens, did you really plan to hit her?”

Fang Chengzhi stared at his wife, “Obviously, you are her mother, you worked so hard to raise her, let alone paying filial piety to you, she even made you cry, so I need to teach her a lesson.”

“You dare! If you dare to touch her, I will deal with you.” Although she knew that Fang Chengzhi was just talking, what he said also made her unhappy.

Anger was anger, but if he really wanted to beat Fang Tong, she was reluctant.

Fang Chengzhi held his wife’s shoulders, “Okay, don’t be angry, I talked to Tongtong, and she knows she was wrong.”

Fu Fanghua was suspicious, “Really?”

“Of course, it’s just that you should change your temper, don’t be so irritable, talk to her and she will understand. Today’s matter is over, don’t mention it, just in the future, you should pay attention to the way you speak, she is now focused on that boy, she will definitely not hear what we say, so we might as well meet the boy, maybe the boy is really good, and if he is not that good, then we will have enough reasons to persuade Tongtong not to go after that boy.”

Fang Chengzhi patiently tried to persuade his wife, but in fact he was also very bitter in his heart. When his daughter and his wife quarrelled, he had to cheer both up.

As soon as Fu Fanghua heard his words, she said reluctantly, “I’ll see him then, but I’m telling you the ugly thing up front, if I’m not satisfied, no matter what you say, I won’t agree.”

“Okay. Even if you don’t talk about it, I can’t not agree.” Fang Chengzhi agreed readily.

“Then do it as soon as possible, there is no point in delaying it.”

“I already told Tongtong, but there has been a lot of work in the boy’s company. So, he has to work overtime, let’s do it after the new year.”

“Who is he, that we have to wait for him.”

“Okay, it’s getting late, let’s rest early.”

That night, Fang Tong didn’t sleep well, as she had quarrelled with her mother, it was something she didn’t want to do, especially when she heard from her father that she made her mother cry last time, and she was thinking that her mother must be even sadder this time.

Fang Tong looked at the time, wandered in front of her parents’ room door for a long time, but still didn’t have the courage to knock on the door. Seeing that the light coming from the crack of the door was dim, she knew that her parents were asleep, so she went back to her room.

The next morning, Fang Tong got up early and made breakfast for her parents. Seeing Fu Fanghua getting up, she felt a little nervous, “Mom.”

Fu Fanghua glanced at her daughter and sighed, “Okay, let’s eat.”

With a smile on Fang Tong’s face, she and Fang Chengzhi looked at each other and pulled Fu Fanghua to sit down at the dining table.

Fang Tong originally thought that Ding Minghui would call her to invite her to attend the company’s annual meeting. She even prepared her dress, but she did not receive a call from Ding Minghui until the day before the annual meeting.

Fang Tong couldn’t help but call Ding Minghui. On the phone, Ding Minghui’s voice was hoarse, as if he had just woken up. Fang Tong looked at the time, it was already twelve o’clock noon.

“Minghui, you just woke up?”

“Well, I got in too late last night, Tongtong, is there something?” He worked overtime until four in the morning last night to finish his work, and it was five o’clock when he fell asleep.

Fang Tong hesitated, not knowing what to say, and thought for a while, “Minghui, does your company have an annual meeting?”

Ding Minghui’s eyes regained some clarity, “Well, it’s tomorrow.”

“Then do you want to attend too?”

Ding Minghui hesitated for a second, then said, “I don’t want to participate, I haven’t become a regular, and I don’t have the qualifications.”

Fang Tong’s heart sank, “I heard that all employees of the head office can participate.”

Ding Minghui was stunned, asked subconsciously, “Who said it?”

“It seems that I heard someone say it, maybe I remember it wrong.” Fang Tong was vague.

Ding Minghui looked relieved, “Then you must have misremembered, only regular employees can participate. I can’t attend with an internship, but I can do it next year. I can even bring family to the annual meeting. Next year, I will take you to participate.”

Fang Tong smiled, “Okay, I thought you could participate this year too. I heard that this annual meeting will be held on a cruise ship. I still wanted to see, but now I have no chance.”

Ding Minghui heard the words, and comforted her by saying, “It’s okay, not this time, but next time, I’ll definitely take you with me.”

“Well, you slept late last night, have a good rest today.”

“Okay, you have to take care of yourself too.”

After hanging up, Shen Qinglan’s phone came in, “Hello, Qinglan.”

“It’s me, are the clothes ready for the annual meeting tomorrow? Do you need me to come pick you up?” Shen Qinglan asked.

“Qinglan, I won’t go to the annual meeting tomorrow. Minghui is an intern and cannot attend this annual meeting.” Fang Tong explained.

Shen Qinglan’s expression froze, “Ding Minghui told you?”

“Well, I just finished talking to him, can you go alone?” After asking, she felt that she had asked a silly question, it was Shen Junyu’s company, Shen Qinglan could obviously go alone?

“Fang Tong.” Shen Qinglan’s tone changed, “Ding Minghui will attend the annual meeting tomorrow.”

Fang Tong thought that Shen Qinglan wanted to help Ding Minghui to ask for an invitation letter, after all if she asked, Shen Junyu would definitely not refuse, “Qinglan, it’s okay, Minghui is still an intern, if he is given special care, he will be ostracized by the company, but it is just an annual meeting, if I will not attend this time, there will be another time.”

“My brother and I are going to attend the annual meeting. I saw Ding Minghui’s name on the list, he will participate in this annual meeting.” Shen Qinglan said, and the cold voice reached Fang Tong’s ears through radio waves.

Fang Tong’s face became ugly, and she remained silent for a long time.

“Qinglan, what are you saying, is it true?” Her voice was rough.

“Yes.” Shen Qinglan replied, “I still have an invitation letter in my hand. If you want to go, I can take you with me.”

Fang Tong was silent, and then said, “Okay Qinglan, tomorrow, please come and pick me up.”
