Facts had proven that things could not be said after an hour!
They both were still in the room, and Fang Han was already running late for the meeting, she hurriedly helped to change the man’s clothes.
Originally, bathing and changing clothes should be done by the close-fitting maid but this man insisted her to do it, and said “I’m not used to being touched”
… Damn, wasn’t she a human?
As a result, she had to quickly freshen up herself first before serving him.
Sigh, anyway, just forget it. A secretary should helped the Boss make a tie. It was just part of her job.
Fang Han muttered to herself, but did not slow down. She took care of her boss from head to toe as quickly as possible.
“Han Han, you are so capable. What should I do without you?” He looked at her leisurely, and suddenly sighed with an emotion.
Fang Han rolled her eyes and quickly forced the person out of the room.
Carried a “briefcase” sewn with cloth towels, Fang Han trotted behind him, passed through the garden and the long corridor headed towards the study room..
She had to say that, apart from him being a heinous rascal behind the closed door, this man looked quite decent on the outside. Whether it was behaviour or style, he was completely a role model of “ancient social elite.”
Fang Han sighed slightly.
Time passed so fast. Unnoticedly, she had been in this world for five years.
Before meeting the “Traversed God”, she was just an ordinary OL. Twenty-seven years old, a manager cum secretary in a small-medium business company. Her worked was nine to five every day. Not earning much but still able to afford to live on her own.
Still remember, the day she broke up with her boyfriend who had been with her for three years, she was heartbroken and so she went to the roof top of the building and wanted to get some fresh air.
She vowed that she absolutely had no intention of the suicidal. After all, trivial matter of having a heartbreak in love was not worth to lose her life.
Wherever she thought of the man that cheated on her came to the roof top, somehow he probably just wanted to make a peaceful declaration like “We can still be friends after breakup.”
She didn’t expect him to rush over and shouted, “You must not die”, but unfortunately he pushed her too hard, she stepped on the air and there was where she fell from the tenth floor.
The moment she was on freefall, Fang Han thought in her heart- if she didn’t die by chance, she vowed that she would never allow anyone to play her heart anymore. Heartbreak was not a happy thing.
She lost her life when she fell in love for the first time and it was not worth it.
However, now that she looked at herself, did she die or no? This question was worth pondering.
That time, she was already lost conscious before falling on to the ground, which saved her from the horrific experience like “smashed into pieces” and “smeared the ground.”
Later, when she opened her eyes, she became a maid who had just been sold into Qiao’s mansion and was named Fang Han by Mrs. Qiao.
Well, at least she was grateful that she had the same name as her previous life and so she adapted quickly.
In addition, she was a maid who had just been bought into the mansion and it was normal that she didn’t know any rules. She accidentally made a mistake and was reprimanded.
And so with that, no one noticed that a thirteen-year-old little maid had been stolen and replaced like an oil lamp…
“Ahem!” A man’s light cough brought her back from distant thoughts.
Fang Han immediately returned to her senses and said respectfully: “What’s the second young master’s order?”
The second young master in Qiao family, named Bai Rong, which was her immediate superior.
Although there are other big bosses in the Qiao family, such as Mr. Qiao, Mrs. Qiao, Grandma, Aunt Nanny, Third Young master, Fourth Young master and second lady, but it was Bai Rong who controlled the family’s economic lifeline.
Since he said that in Qiao’s house, she only needed to listen to his orders. So she automatically ignore the other masters who were trying to make trouble for her.
“Just like what the shopkeeper said, can you write it down?” He asked casually.
“Yes.” Fang Han immediately looked down at her notes, “Treasurer Qi mentioned that a lot people have come to the bank recently to exchange silver. Afraid that something we do not know may be happened.”
“Yeah.” Qiao Bai Rong nodded.
Hmph, this little girl pretended as if nothing happened, but her mind was flew somewhere else earlier, thought second young master didn’t notice it?
It was not easy to recall the “meeting content.” when she was daydreaming.
Qiao Bai Rong didn’t know that Fang Han was a secretary in her previous life. It was really a piece of cake for her in preparing the minutes. She had already developed the ability to record even while in a daze.
In fact, she took the initiative and volunteered to record the minutes.
At first, Qiao Bai Rong was quite disagree on this. He felt it was unnecessary. He was confident that he could remember them in his memory and would not forget what he had heard.
It was just that he had been always condoned this girl, well since she wanted to do hardwork, then let her be.
But he didn’t expect this meeting minutes were so useful.
First of all, although he used to remember what everyone had said, but most of the time were scattered messages. After he read the minutes that compiled by Fang Han, it was so much easier to look for answer from these information.
Furthermore, after each meeting, Fang Han will let all the people involved in the meeting to go through minutes to ensure that there were no omission or misplantation and asked everyone to confirm if the details were right and then stamped their fingerprints to show acknowledgement and responsibility.
In this way, if something went wrong in the future, you would just need to look through those records again to see who lied and who did not report it.
This had impressed Qiao Bai Rong with admiration on this little girl.
If someone could think of this method, indeed a smart person. Not many girl would be able to record down quickly for all the important points during discussion. From then on, he began to feel that this girl was probably not an ordinary person.
But as for herself, she may not be as organized as like her work.
He tried to inquire about her origin but he couldn’t find out anything except he learned that she seemed to be a criminal before she was bought into Qiao Family.
Fang Han knew that she had been silently observed by her boss for a long time. She quickly recorded the conversations of these people, suddenly she felt a little pain at her waist and frowned slightly.
Not to mentioned, it was someone’s obvious piece of work.
Alas, worked as secretary in these years were not easy. Not only she did work all year round, she often had to work hard overtime until midnight.
But what to do? In this era of distinct classes, whoever held her identity controlled her life and death, which was why she had to try her best to please the boss in Qiao family for many years.
A good woman would not be suffered easily from losses.
In short, she didn’t plan to fall in love or marry anyone in this life, and … well, having Mr. Boss as bed partner was not that bad.
His look, physique and… not to mentioned his bed skills were….. alright, let’s call it sleeping … somewhat a little different. He pestered her like an octopus. Anyway, she had no other choice, just had to do it.
As her thoughts were getting crooked, she heard a familiar soft cough again.
Initially Fang Han wanted to say, “Why don’t you go and see doctor if still keep coughing?”, but in the end she said. “Does the second master have any other orders?” She also added a sweet and amiable smile.
Qiao Bai Rong, who saw all her reactions in his eyes. First glanced at her was playful, then his eyes floated to the chair behind him and said, “Sit.”
The second master asked her to sit? Fang Han’s eyes widened.
Looked at these people in this room, all of them were branch managers. They were all have to stand upright in front of the big boss- Second Master Qiao to show respectful.
Who was this little secretary? Had the privilege of being given a seat by the young master?
While she was still suspicious, Qiao Bai Rong suddenly leaned in close to her and said softly, “Aren’t you feeling unwell? Sit and rest.”
The ambiguous tone immediately made her blushed in front of everyone.
Although he said very softly and those people wouldn’t have heard it but thinking why she was “unwell” by him last night, Fang Han was ashamed, and he still dared to lean so close to her now.
She wanted to throw the minutes on her hand at this hateful man.
Of course, she endured it.
After all, people were under the eaves and had to bow their heads. So she could only gave Qiao Bai Rong a touched smile, “Thank you second master for being considerate.” Then she sat generously in front of a standing group of managers.
Somehow, for a moment, she felt that all the eyes looked at her as if they were looking at some evil concubine…
Fang Han always thought herself who knew the current affairs well enough. If someone took a knife and held on her neck and intended to rob her wealth and rape her, she would never cry and would do whatever it asked to be alive.
After all, she knew how important that life was. Even if she cried, it would not change the facts. It may caused more difficult situation and annoyed a robber.
Ever since she came to ancient time, to the place where she never heard before nor seen in any history textbooks. She thought that this kind of personality traits helped her alot through the time and space.
She was inherently lazy by nature, but being sweet, hardworking, and innocent tricks could make her life living comfortably, then she will do it without any hesitation.
By all means, even to climb on Qiao Bai Rong.
Speaking of Qiao’s family, Qiao Bai Rong’s great-grandfather and previous generations had served as high officials in the dynasty.
It was a pity that the inheritance would not work all the times. The great-grandfather’s generation unfortunately gave birth to a batch of bad bamboo shoots. The five cousins of the grandfather’s generation were all ignorant and unskilful.
These five people only knew how to eat, drink, gamble and prostitution. The biggest problem they were trying to empty out the ancestral property, even including corruption, robbed, blackmailed the officials. Whether it was true or not, all the bad things were buckled on Qiao Family, caused alot turbulence in the imperial court.
If it weren’t for some people around them who remembered the kindness of Qiao Family, it would have been long ruined.
But also since then, Qiao Family’s vitality was greatly injured and withdrew from the central government. Only left a few minor unimportant official positions.
In the current generation of Master Qiao, although he was determined to regain the glory of the Qiao family, he stressed over his talent in studies. Master Qiao had been studied hard for all his life, even he wanted to be successful, he could only be a great student, which may be hopeless.
In addition, the Qiao family’s fortune was squandered by the previous generation, so left only an empty shell now.
Long story short, even though the Master Qiao had a legitimate wife, but because the Qiao family fancied the rich and enviable dowry, he would have to marry with a merchant’s daughter.
The Yang family’s daughter was just an ordinary person but her status was actually one level higher, but still could not be equal with his legal wife.
The Yang family’s wealth was huge. Eventually she resolved all the difficulties in Qiao Family. Even though Qiao Family secretly despised the second wife Yang, but none of them would dared to say anything.
Master Qiao had to marry the merchant’s daughter for the sake of his family, so he could not help being cold to her.
Among the four sons and two daughters of Master Qiao, only the second young son, Qiao Bai Rong, was born by the Yang family, and Yang passed away not long after gave birth to him.
As soon as Yang’s death, Master Qiao’s situation immediately became difficult. His first wife hated Qiao Bai Rong’s biological mother for taking her husband away.
When Master Qiao saw this son, he immediately thought himself was forced to marry Yang, and Qiao’s family regarded Qiao Perong as a shame.
Unfortunately, Qiao Bai Rong’s grandfather was not someone who easy to dealth with. He allowed his daughter married to the Qiao Family with a large dowry, but the most valuable would be land deeds and shops.
Those dowries were still in the hands of Yang Family. As long as Yang did not nod or approved, none of the Qiao Family could move a cent.
Yang knew that her husband was not in the same mind with her, so before she died, she gave those important contracts, seals, keys and other important things to the loyal manager of the Yang family, and asked the manager to hand over power to her son after grew up, but as well as did left some gold, silver and jewelry to the Qiao family.
The Qiao family was so angry but they had other no choice. Especially with the large amount of wealth, but could not be used. They felt even more hatred towards Yang Family.
For this reason, although they didn’t want Qiao Bai Rong to live well, still they didn’t dare to treat him harshly.
Then it evolved into what it was right now.
The other three young masters of the Qiao family were still following in the footsteps of their ancestors, studied hard and tried to become an official. Only Qiao Bai Rong took over his mother’s inheritance from the steward of the Yang family as early as the age of fourteen and began to learn business.
However, in the Qiao family’s generation, only First Young Master almost succeeded but still wasn’t so good in result. At the end, the whole family’s cost still depend on Qiao Bai Rong.
When Fang Han first entered Qiao’s house and figured out this intricate and tangled relationship, she knew that she could only have a good life with Qiao Bai Rong.
It was easy to think about it, but wasn’t that simple to implement it. She had to endure it for more than a year and finally got a job as a cleaner in Qiao Bai Rong’s studyroom.
As a twenty-eight year old young simple mature lady, Fang Han knew very well that the only way to make her boss notice her in the shortest time possible was to create something new.
It was just that she never thought she would had an unfortunate day to travel through time and space. So, she didn’t study carefully on how to attract the attention of ancient men.
To become as a literary and artistic girl that plundered other people’s artwork, poems or maybe cosplay as Lin Dai Yu were not only difficult for someone who had never read any ancient Chinese book after University, but Fan Hang also suspected that Second Young Master had no interest of that at all except for someone who was full of business ideas.
So in the end, Fang Han could only start with her expertise in organizing work for the boss.
Qiao Bai Rong’s library had a large collection of books, and many of them had notes on it. It was obvious that he was a well-read and knowledgeable person, but he had no interest in fame.
However, his books were arranged in a mess and irregularities. Every time he looked for a book, would took him long time to find it. After reading, he liked to put them away at someplace. Whenever he wanted to read them again, he would have to have find it. This was very inefficient.
For this reason, she spent several months to help in organizing all the books in different categories and made a list and labels of books. It was clear which kind of books should be placed in which cabinet at a glance.
Qiao Bai Rong marveled at her smartness. At the same time, he also found out the fact that she was literated during her coordination of work.
A literate maid was much easier target for the master than an average maid.
From then on, Fang Han followed the original plan and walked into Qiao Bai Rong’s life bit by bit, eventually became inseparable from him.
Of course, in the beginning, she simply just wanted to be a good secretary who made her boss indispensable, so that she could live a comfortable life without worrying about her being held and being sold by her master.
Never thought that her care and attentiveness, made her ended up to the boss’s bed.
She couldn’t help but sigh with deep emotion. Generally fact of reality, whether in modern days or ancient times – bosses and secretaries were prone to extramarital affairs.
