MADLM Chapter 17

Chapter 17

Shi Nan stared at the man closely. For some reason, an inexplicable anxiety and tension grew in his heart.

He was covered in cold sweat in a few seconds.

The man stayed at the conference table then he turned around, his indifferent gaze swept across the room as he waved his hand casually: “Sit down.” The dragging sound of the chair sounded. After everyone sat down, the standing person looked unusually abrupt.

Shi Nan stayed standing there. This person looked exactly like Song Linsheng, except for his hairstyle and clothes, they looked just like twins.

This is Song Linsheng, but why does Song Linsheng appear here?

This person is the big boss behind Tianguang, how could he look like Song Linsheng?

Shi Nan was so shocked that he couldn’t speak, thinking that he might have something wrong with his eyes.

The big boss raised his eyes, his gaze stayed on the face of the only person who was standing, a flash of impatience flashed in his eyes.

“Hey.” Boss Wang hurriedly tugged Shi Nan’s sleeves and pressed him firmly on the chair. “What are you doing? Why are you in a daze?”

Shi Nan was in a daze. This is not Song Linsheng. Song Linsheng never looks at him like this.

But why does it look so alike?


Song Linsheng never said that he has brothers and sisters.

Shi Nan didn’t hear a word of what was said in the next meeting, only a familiar voice kept ringing in his ears.

Everyone has their own way of speaking, the speed of speaking, pronunciation problems, including some small habits when speaking.

Although Shi Nan hadn’t studied how Song Linsheng spoke, how did this man’s voice sound exactly the same as Song Linsheng !

Song Linsheng, who was married to him, was an ordinary office worker who worked as a volunteer and this one was a behind-the-scenes big shot of the entertainment industry, but he couldn’t help himself from overthinking.

Shi Nan was so shocked that he forgot to narrow his eyes. When everyone dared not look up at the big boss, only Shi Nan stared at him.

The line of sight is too straightforward, it’s hard not to let people notice.

Finally, the man raised his head to meet Shi Nan’s eyes, then lifted his chin in the direction outside the door, and said coldly: “Get out.” Everyone in the conference room raised their heads and followed the big boss’s sight to Shi Nan.

Shi Nan didn’t seem to react yet.

Boss Wang gave Shi Nan a harder push , and said anxiously, “What are you thinking about during the meeting?”

Shi Nan suddenly returned to his senses.

Xiang Yang, who had been sitting behind playing games, heard the boss speak, and when he raised his head to look for the person , he found that it was Shi Nan that the big boss was going to drive out.

Xiang Yang hesitated for a moment.

Before Xiang Yang could move, Shi Nan stood up and said, “I’m sorry, I will go out now.”

Shi Nan left the meeting room and went to the pantry. His brain gradually returned to normal.

Twins, only this can explain the current situation.

No, the twins are not so alike, these two are exactly the same.

But if it was Song Linsheng, why didn’t he recognise him?

Is it true that it is not Song Linsheng?

“Huh.” Someone patted Shi Nan on the shoulder. Shi Nan turned around, and Xiang Yang raised his chin. “What’s wrong with you? What are you in a daze during a meeting?”

Shi Nan looked at Xiang Yang. Xiang Yang is the assistant to the big boss, they are very close, he can ask Xiangyang if his guess is right.

What should he ask?

Ask if the big boss has any twin brothers?

“Assistant Xiang, what’s the name of the boss?” Shi Nan suddenly remembered that he didn’t even know the name of the boss.

Xiang Yang couldn’t help laughing when he heard this: “You’re so funny. How long has this been since the acquisition? You don’t even know what the boss’s name is? You should have been fired a long time ago.”

Shi Nan didn’t smile, only perseveringly asked again: “What’s the name of the big boss?”

“Song Linsheng.” Xiang Yang turned the lollipop in his mouth, “lin( 林) from Shuang Mu lin (雙木林), the sheng (笙) of Shengxiao (笙簫).”

Song Linsheng?

Shi Nan frowned, is there such a coincidence in the world? “

” Which Sheng? Is it the shēngxiāo (笙簫) or shēngxiào (生肖)? “Shi Nan asked almost subconsciously.

Xiang Yang gave him a blank look as if looking at a fool: “The music of sheng 1 Sheng : The sheng (Chinese: 笙) is a Chinese mouth-blown free reed instrument consisting of vertical pipes. ,Dàn wǒ bùnéng fànggē, qiāoqiāo shì biélí de shēng xiāo ; xià chóng yě wèi wǒ chénmò, chénmò shì jīn wǎn de kāngqiáo, understand? ” 2但我不能放歌,  悄悄是別離的笙簫; 夏蟲也為我沉默,  沉默是今晚的康橋! ___from the poem ‘再別康橋 ‘(Xu Zhimo’s poems) Translates to : But as for me , I cannot sing This muted summer’s evening ; Even insects hush, as silence Plays the flute for leaving!

Xiang Yang felt that something was wrong with Shi Nan today. Even though he was silly , he wasn’t so dull. When Xiang Yang turned around to go, he stopped and looked at Shi Nan, saying seriously: “The big boss is a bit weird. I persuade you, you better not provoke him. “After Xiang Yang left the pantry, Shi Nan immediately took out his mobile phone and called Song Linsheng.

As always, the phone was connected, but no one answered.

Shi Nan thought for a while, called Shi Haiping and asked about what Song Linsheng and his company did as volunteers.

The volunteer Shi Haiping saw was not Song Linsheng alone. Song Linsheng only went there occasionally. Shi Haiping mentioned another volunteer to Shi Nan. After hanging up Shi Haiping’s phone, Shi Nan called the volunteer. .

The volunteer was a little girl, Shi Nan had seen her several times.

Shi Nan introduced himself and the little girl immediately knew who he was.

Shi Nan made an excuse, “I would like to ask , is Song Lin Sheng there? I couldn’t contact him when I called him. If he is there, can you let him answer the phone? “

” Song? “The little girl was surprised, “He doesn’t work here.” “

” What?” Shi Nan’s breathing stopped for a moment.

“He was our volunteer. Some time ago, when your father was in the hospital, he happened to come over as a volunteer at night when he had time. He should have been quite busy during this time and never came. “

Shi Nan felt that his whole head was buzzing, he took a long while before opening his mouth, “Has he never been there during this time? “Song Linsheng goes out to work every morning. If he didn’t go there to work, where did he go?

“Of course not. He has his own job. He just volunteered to be a volunteer. You may not understand the nature of our work. Most of us volunteers have their own jobs, they just come out to help others in their spare time…”

Shi Nan couldn’t hear what the little girl said again.

He felt that the more he listened, the more ridiculous it was.

After hanging up the phone, Shi Nan picked up the glass and drank a glass of water. He could basically conclude that the person whom he saw in the meeting room was Song Linsheng, who had just received his marriage certificate with him some time ago.

If it’s like this , he has been lying to him, his job is not a volunteer at all, but the boss of Tianguang?

So why did he lie to him?

Shi Nan took a deep breath, and the dog-blood drama in his mind began to unfold .

Because he is too rich and afraid of being coveted for his money, he deliberately pretends to be poor to test his sincerity.

This is the most reasonable explanation Shi Nan can think of.

So he drove a little Ford of more than 100,000 yuan and said that his house was rented. Everything was to test him?

No, it may not be a test. He just doesn’t want to let him know his identity for fear that he will divide his property?

The more Shi Nan thought about it, the more he felt that this explanation was reasonable, and then he became angry .

Especially he didn’t want to marry a big boss, it’s okay, if he (SLS) showed him (SN) his (SLS) identity at the beginning, he would be hiding far away.

What does he take him for? Does he take him to be a fool, or to be a person greedy for money?

Shi Nan sorted out his thoughts, and the more he thought about it, the more angry he became, and he kept spinning in the pantry. Now he could just blow up at any moment.

The meeting ended in the conference room, and everyone came out in twos and threes.

From the direction of the pantry, Shi Nan saw Song Linsheng return to the office.

No, today he has to ask to understand. To make things clear, he has to know why he got the marriage certificate with him .

“Shi Nan.” Boss Wang frowned when he saw Shi Nan coming over, “Why were you in a daze during the meeting? I think you should go to Mr. Song to explain. After all, you are working under him.”

“Okay.” Shi Nan nodded, then took the file and strode towards the president’s office without hesitation.

Boss Wang was taken aback. It didn’t look like he was going to explain, but it was like going to fight.

Shi Nan was so angry that he didn’t care about anything and knocked directly on the door of the president’s office.

“Come in.” When he heard this voice, Shi Nan took a deep breath. He had also heard the word “Come in” when he came to deliver food before. He didn’t think much about it at the time, but how familiar he felt now.

When Shi Nan pushed the door in, he saw Song Linsheng sitting behind the desk at a glance.

When he left in the morning, he wore a white shirt and black trousers. Now he changed into a high fashioned black suit, and even the clothes have been upgraded by hundreds of grades. He (SLS) had put in a lot of thought to deceive him (SN).

Song Linsheng’s hair is quite short and he doesn’t usually take much care of it, but now the hair is obviously arranged with hairspray, more stylish than when he left in the morning.

Song Linsheng raised his head and saw that the person coming in was Shi Nan, his brows instantly frowned.

Yes, the same goes for this frowning brow. There is a shallow depression between the brows, which is not obvious, but you can see it if you look carefully.

Shi Nan closed the office door and walked in, standing still at Song Linsheng’s desk, trying to make his voice as peaceful as possible.

“Song—Lin Sheng, President Song?”

Song Linsheng looked at him coldly, without speaking.

Song Linsheng’s eyes were cold and unfamiliar, even with a bit of sarcasm, which made Shi Nan feel that he really didn’t know him.

“You don’t know me, do you?” When Shi Nan asked this, he felt a bit frustrated. He gritted his teeth, what did he want him to pretend to be!

Song Linsheng narrowed his eyes, and suddenly said his name with a sneer: “Shi Nan.”

Shi Nan was frustrated, is he going to pretend?

“Shi Nan, the newly appointed manager of the Planning Department. The video account has 2 million fans. This is considered a…net celebrity?” Song Linsheng sneered, “Oh, yes, he also plays some small roles sometimes, and can he also be considered as an actor? “

? ? ? ? ?

Shi Nan had a question mark.

“So…” Song Linsheng stood up suddenly, putting his hands on the table and bending over to stare at Shi Nan, “You looked at me like that in full view of everyone present in the meeting , and now you sneak into my office again. Is it because of unspoken rules?”

? ? ? ? ?

Shi Nan opened his mouth wide. What, what is he talking about?

Song Linsheng looked up and down Shi Nan’s body, and then sarcastically said, ” You want to rely on unspoken rules to get ahead, do you even know how much value you have? .”

Shi Nan: “…”

He wanted to hit someone. .

What kind of narcissist is this?

At this moment, Shi Nan began to wonder again, this could not be Song Linsheng, there must have been something wrong.

After seeing the colorful expressions on Shi Nan’s face, Song Linsheng didn’t bother to pay attention to him anymore, and pointed outside the door: “Go out, or I’ll call for security.”
