    Chapter 140: Please Be Serious!

    “When did I give you a resignation letter?” Yang Jingwan seemed stunned for a moment, but soon realized what she was saying, and angrily retorted:

    “Oh, you—! I understand! You’re just trying to drive me away, before monopolizing and taking my achievements as your own!”

    “Hah! Yours?! Who said it was your achievement? Go to the computer and look it up, see who the salesperson who settled the commission actually is.” Yu Yan grinned sinisterly.

    “Ugh! No wonder you were acting so kind, even helping me with the contract signing. It turns out you’ve already tampered with the results!” Yang Jingwan spat her words in fury.

    It was no secret that Yu Yan liked to exploit her subordinates.

    And the 12 houses that were sold would earn a commission of nearly a million!

    This old witch clearly wanted to take that commission into her own pocket!

    Nearly a million, her appetite truly wasn’t small.

    “Knowing now is far too late” Yu Yan puffed out her chest proudly.

    “So many colleagues saw that I was the one who received that customer, and the house was also personally sold by me. I’ll report you to the higher-ups!” Yang Jingwan’s face turned crimson.

    “Since I dared to do it, do you think I’d still be afraid of a measly report? No one here will dare to speak up for you. Plus, even if someone dares, see if anyone in the head office would punish me in the end.” As an old ginger with many connections in the company, she was naturally confident.

    Seeing the arrogant look on the bully of a hag’s face, Yang Jingwan felt immensely wronged and was about to lash out at her.

    However, at that moment, a hand suddenly landed on her shoulder, patting her lightly.

    She looked behind her in surprise and saw a handsome face staring back.

    “I’ve heard it all, let me handle it.” Wang Haoran comforted the naïve lady.

    “Ah, alright.” Yang Jingwan couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief, moving slightly to the side.

    Yu Yan, who had somewhat heard those straightforward words, subconsciously observed the young man that had abruptly appeared. Moreover, she was able to tell instantaneously, that he possessed an extraordinary temperament, and even radiated a form of noble aura all throughout his body. 

    This was not the look of an ordinary person.

    “You are?” Yu Yan asked vigilantly when she saw that Wang Haoran was going to help Yang Jingwan.

    “My surname is Wang. Someone should have already contacted you, yes?” Wang Haoran spoke.

    “So you’re Young Master Wang!” Yu Yan was startled, her legs and feet beginning to tremble.

    In the morning just prior, she had received a call from Qin Yunhan, the eldest lady of the Qin Group. And during that call, the eldest lady had said that a rich man surnamed Wang might come over, and repeatedly drill into Yu Yan’s head to obey his orders without question.

    “Young Master Wang, Jingwan and I were simply joking just now, please don’t take it so seriously, don’t take it seriously.” Yu Yan, after confirming that Wang Haoran was the rich man the eldest lady had been talking about, immediately put on a smile and changed her attitude.

    But Wang Haoran didn’t even bother paying attention to a small fry such as Yu Yan at all, and instead looked directly at Yang Jingwan and said:

    “You can dispose of this person as you like. It’s up to you to fire her or send her to jail.”

    Yu Yan’s calves trembled in fright, and she fearfully knelt down on the ground.

    Her current humble appearance was in stark contrast to her previous arrogance.

    Yang Jingwan glared at the woman condescendingly, suddenly feeling very soothed in her heart, the unwillingness and resentment of being bullied before were now swept away like petals in a storm.

    Yet she also deeply understood that this was all because of Wang Haoran’s help.

    [Ding! The heroine Yang Jingwan’s favourability towards the host has increased by 10, the current total favourability is 45 (Very Friendly)!]

    [Ding! The host changed the direction of the plot! 

    • Received 200 villain points!]

    Yang Jingwan’s favourability had risen to 45 so quickly?

    Wang Haoran was secretly amazed.

    The Charm Halo possessed an active skill, which could increase the favourability of any heroine by 10 points, with normal female characters reaching 100 when exposed to it.

    And through experience, he realized that when a heroine’s favourability reached over 50 points, there would be a qualitative change in their attitude towards him.


    ‘What kind of miraculous situation would it be for a married heroine to develop feelings for me?’

    Wang Haoran felt curious about it, and so communicated with the system to send out an instruction through his thoughts, activating one of his abilities.

    Soon, a prompt message arrived from the system.

    [Ding! The Host has used the Charm Halo on the heroine Yang Jingwan. The heroine’s favourability towards the host increases by 10, the current total favourability is 55 (Heartfelt Love)!]

    [Ding! the Host affects the original direction of the plot.

    • Obtained 500 Villain Points 
    • Su Lang protagonist halo -30 
    • Host villain halo +30!]

    After Wang Haoran received these two system prompts, he could clearly feel that Yang Jingwan had suddenly trembled, her eyes flashing with a shocked light as she subconsciously stared at him.

    Just looking at each other briefly caused a blush to appear on Yang Jingwan’s snow-white features.

    And the young lady looked away immediately like a frightened rabbit, a deer caught in headlights.

    “Jingwan, I was confused for a moment! I shouldn’t have been greedy for your commission! Please let me go. I have an old mother and a child under three years old. I can’t go to jail!”

    Yu Yan kept kowtowing to Yang Jingwan while fervently apologizing, seemingly scared witless.




    Her head hit the floor, again and again, again and again.

    After a few blows, Yu Yan’s forehead started bleeding.

    Yang Jingwan, who originally wanted to send Yu Yang to jail, saw this pitiful scene, and immediately hesitated, her heart inevitably softening in the face of such shameless cry-acting.

    “Just leave, I don’t want to see you ever again.” Yang Jingwan replied, sounding disgusted.

    “Thank you, Jingwan, I’ll write the resignation report right away, and you won’t see me ever again after tomorrow.” After Yu Yan finished speaking her piece, she immediately supported her body and stood up, hurrying away as if she was afraid that Yang Jingwan would later regret her decision.

    And though Wang Haoran easily saw through the pitiful act, he did not try and stop her in the end.

    He had told Yang Jingwan to decide it herself. Since Yang Jingwan only wanted Yu Yan to resign, then so be it, she could do what she wanted.

    Not to mention that Yang Jingwan wasn’t stupid, and should also see that Yu Yan was faking.

    Alas, her heart was still too soft.

    Seeing that Yu Yan had resorted to using self-destructive methods, as if about to break her own head into pieces, she couldn’t help but feel like it would be cruel to continue any further.

    “You’ve helped me again, I… how should I thank you?” Yang Jingwan looked towards Wang Haoran with complicated eyes.

    “What exactly do you mean by that? Can I understand it as you being willing to agree to anything, as long as I open my mouth and ask?” Wang Haoran leaned in and asked playfully.

    Yang Jingwan’s heart trembled at the close proximity between them. She began sweating nervously.

    What should she do if Wang Haoran really made any excessive demands?

    Could she still reject him now?

    “Stretch out your hand.” Wang Haoran suddenly spoke.

    And Yang Jingwan didn’t know why, but she followed suit and stretched out her thin, slender hands, revealing a set of well-maintained nails in the shape of crescent moons.

    Seeing this, Wang Haoran gently squeezed her hands.


    Yang Jingwan was shocked! The young lady subconsciously wanted to withdraw her hands.

    However, Wang Haoran had grabbed on tight, and she found herself unable to break free at all.

    “You, let me go, if someone else sees this, then… t-that won’t be good.”

    Yang Jingwan’s face flushed pink, as embarrassment and annoyance mingled in her mind, making it difficult to think. She wanted to warn Wang Haoran, and maybe even scold him a bit, but when the words reached her lips, the young lady could only stutter out a weak and shy resistance.

    Wang Haoran loosened his grip at the perfect time.

    Yang Jingwan finally withdrew her hand with a sigh of relief, yet her heart was still pounding wildly in her chest, uncontrollably as if someone had shocked it with electricity. 

    [Ding! The Host successfully teased the heroine Yang Jingwan’s heart, 

    • Obtained 200 Villain Points!]

    “Young Master Wang, you have helped me many times, so I am very grateful to you, but please be more serious. If you continue doing this, then we may not even remain friends!” Yang Jingwan, with a chilling expression, issued a harsh warning.

    It was so believable that if Wang Haoran hadn’t received the system notification just now, he would have actually been fooled by Yang Jingwan, thinking that his actions had angered her.

    Women were indeed duplicitous animals.

    Obviously feeling touched, yet pretending to be cold and rejecting people thousands of miles away.

    Unfortunately. . .

    Wang Haoran only found that trait of theirs all the more interesting to defeat.
