- Chapter One Pt 2 - I Transmigrated Back (1)
Somewhere, in S city…
Situated across the street from an office building was a brightly decorated cafe, with sunlight pouring in through the floor-to-ceiling windows and landing on the large table cloths.
The central air-conditioner was silent, but the temperature in the room was just right. The well-dressed white-collar elites were at their computers, clicking away on their keyboards with their fingers while some were enjoying their desserts with coffee whilst in hushed conversation. In the corner booth shaded by tall green plants, at opposite ends of the table, sat two women.
“Miss Zhao, we’re both smart people, we don’t need to beat around the bush. I know you’re following Rong Zhen for the Rong family’s resources and money, but as long as you leave Rong Zhen I’ll give you five million yuan. Take it as my way of showing you my sincerity.”
Shen Zhi Fei pushed the check with five million yuan written on it towards the woman seated on the opposite side, “I know Miss Zhao isn’t lacking money, and I have no intention of insulting you. I truly appreciate Miss Zhao’s work, but due to the upcoming marriage between the Shen and Rong families, I hope Miss Zhao can change sponsors. The resources and care that Rong Zhen can provide you with, are also within what I can provide for you. I hope that Miss Zhao will consider accepting these terms. “
Zhao Xiaokui was in a daze for a long time before she comprehended what the woman across the table was saying.
“Excuse me,” she opened her mouth woodenly, “I think I might need to go to the bathroom.”
Shen Zhifei paused, “…that’s all I have to offer, Miss Zhao, please consider it.”
Heedless of the woman on the other side, after having said her words, Zhao Xiaokui hurriedly stood up. After looking around the cafe, she quickly walked towards the direction where there was a bathroom sign.
Her movements were so hasty that she looked as if she was about to puncture holes in the floor with her heels. Shen Zhi Fei thought that her going to the bathroom was just an excuse, but now, it really appeared like she was in a real hurry.
The cafe’s restroom was small, with only four face-to-face compartments with mirrors attached to the walls all around.
Zhao Xiaokui pressed her hands against the marble countertop of the sink, took a deep breath, closed her eyes tightly and prepared herself mentally before raising her head.
Reflected in the mirror was a very familiar face.
She dipped her hand in water and desperately rubbed the corner of her left eye. At the same time as her skin was rubbed red by her, a tear mole that was formerly concealed by the concealer, was revealed.
Upon seeing the tear mole, she lifted her hair to reveal her right ear and removed the swan earring attached to it, finding a small mole hidden underneath it.
It was her body.
Even if she still couldn’t figure out what was going on and who that woman was, Zhao Xiaokui still confirmed a fact——she was back.
After five years, when she was at her lowest point, filled with despair, she had returned, she was back inside her own body again.
Not caring that there was a stranger waiting outside, Zhao Xiaokui pulled open a restroom cubicle and sat on the toilet. She covered her face and cried out.
She was back.
She had finally returned to the human world.
