The Days of Being an Assistant for the CEO of a Mary Sue Novel - Chapter 11: I'm an idiot
Chapter 11- I’m an idiot
And so, I have been working under my boss for another year.
During this period, I experienced the melodramatic and chaotic love story between my boss and his future wife.
Of course, I was the main victim of the chaos.
The boss waves his hand and the assistant runs until their legs are sore.
There were numerous times that I wanted to inform my boss that I was only an assistant, not a detective.
But he never once even realized it.
I was also very helpless.
The boss’ uncle and I also tolerably got by. He didn’t let me meet with Doctor Li or Doctor Wang again.
In contrast, Doctor Shu and I could sometimes be considered as friends who tell everything about each other. Or it could also be called as having a good doctor-patient relationship.
“Look at this.” Doctor Shu threw a book at me.
“What?” I causally flipped over the book.
“You said something about a Mary Sue novel.” Doctor Shu raised an all-too-familiar eyebrow.
“What’s the matter?”
“I studied it.”
“Do you know what most Mary Sue novels have in common?”
Do you know what’s a classic trope of most mary sue novels?
“What?” I put down the book and prepared to properly listen to this second-rate doctor’s words.
“Every man who is relatively good enough in the books will fall in love with the heroine.”
“What do you want to say?”
“As far as I know, the only one interested in Li You is your boss.”
“En?” I took out my phone to reply to the boss’ uncle’s message.
“The rest….” Doctor Shu looked at me, “for example, you, Mr. He, Li Yuan, or even the bar owner that you spoke about, are all supposed to be interested in Li You if we are following the plot.”
“Why am I among them?” My fingers that were typing the reply froze.
“The CEO’s assistant,” Doctor Shu pulled out a piece of paper, “Cannonfodder, unfortunately.”
“You’re the cannonfodder!” I glared at him, “It’s still a supporting male lead.”
“It’s not that bad,” he followed along my words, “So do you get what I’m saying?”
“What you had said was a fantasy may not necessarily be a fantasy and what you perceived as reality may not necessarily be nonexistent.” Doctor Shu stared at me as he stopped wiping his hands, “Change has already started. Everything isn’t really predestined.”
I froze. My finger that hovered over the send button made no movement.
Soon, I called the boss.
“She loves you but she thinks you are only using her as a substitute. That cannonfodder man is not her boyfriend. She deceived you. Now you need to go to old 23 Xiangkou street, find her, and tell her that you love her. Not because of the child or anything else, but because she is Li You.”
“……” There was a long silence on the opposite end.
After which the phone was hanged up.
I know my boss went to find Li You.
“You did a good deed.” Doctor Shu praised.
When the boss’ uncle came to pick me up, I felt my hands grow cold.
I looked at him and tried hard to remember our first meeting.
“At that time, why were you looking for boss?” My eyes were still on the boss’ uncle. His face stern.
He seemed to be intimidated by me and hesitated in replying. But after noticing Doctor Shu’s obvious hints behind me, he deliberated on telling me the truth: “Originally, I had been looking for a woman….”
“Li You?” I instantly responded.
The boss’ uncle nodded. He immediately began to nervously explain, “But I haven’t been interested in her since I saw you.”
I should be glad that Doctor Shu promptly ‘cured’ my self-righteousness.
“He Nianyao,” I seldom called the boss’ uncle by his full name, “I’m an idiot.”
“Ah?” the boss’ uncle was dumbfounded.
But it doesn’t matter.
“I don’t think you need to come back here anymore.” Doctor Shu watched us.
“I think so too.”
“Boss He, let’s go home.” I took the initiative to grab the boss’ uncle’s hand.
Ten fingers interlaced.
Later, my boss sent me a message.
—-Ping’an, thank you. And, you’re fired. There would be no severance compensation.
Spicy Chicken president! You’re damaging my youth! Cutting off my livelihood!
If this place doesn’t want this master to stay, there will be other places that will want this master to stay.
“You can’t be my assistant.”
“I don’t want you to work during the day, I want you to work at night.”
“…….” You think I want to?
Bastards, you’re all spicy chicken executives.
T/N: Here’s the chapter, earlier than I expected! I thought that I’d just post the extra too just because I didn’t want to leave you hanging. Please tell me what you think!
