What Comes Around Goes Around - Chapter 7.2
Cheng Yao looked at the handsome face in front of her, feeling a little excited and a little nervous for no reason.
“I know that many newcomers can’t last a year. The profession of a lawyer is very challenging and needs a lot of hard work. Many people change their careers.” Qian Heng paused. “I hope that if you can’t persist, you will resign immediately. ”
Cheng Yao:? ? ?
Wait, what about the powerful encouragement? At least, he would offer a bowl of chicken soup, right?
“This afternoon, I have an appointment with the party who’s in dispute over the division of property after the divorce. If you can’t handle it, then you will be withdrawn from the case. The divorce case involves the privacy of the client. If you don’t want to do it, you will not participate in the afternoon. “Qian Heng looked at his watch, “There is still an hour before the afternoon meeting. I came here because I needed to find you to confirm your answer, so that I can replace the team members.”
Although she didn’t like it, Cheng Yao had to admit, Qian Heng was very professional.
Whenever he accepts a case from a client, he always puts the client’s interests first and considers everything very comprehensively and carefully. It was no wonder that he became one of the top lawyers in just a few years.
For the first time, Cheng Yao realized that even though he had a bad mouth and a bad temper, she was still very far… far away from Qian Heng.
“No, becoming a family lawyer is the goal of my life.” Cheng Yao bit her lower lip tightly. “Don’t worry, even if I encounter depression and setbacks, I will not give up my job.” Cheng Yao’s determination shined through her eyes. She silently vowed in her heart that she would never give up before defeating Qian Heng in the court.
“Since you aren’t quitting your job, make sure you carefully memorize every person’s name.” Qian Heng snorted coldly, “I don’t want to see you send something strange to the client next time.”
“Okay, there is nothing more to say to you. That’s right.” Qian Heng straightened his collar, “I can finally get out of this store that doesn’t suit me.” Qian Heng finished speaking, wiped his mouth gracefully, and left straight away.
When he passed the cashier, he pointed to Cheng Yao who was still sitting at the table, “My bill will be paid by her.”
Cheng Yao was stunned, this shitty man turned out to be her boss!
She angrily followed Qian Heng’s instructions and changed his WeChat name and mobile phone remarks.
Cheng Yao poked the phone screen hard until Qian Heng’s name changed to three catchy words.
That’s it! Cheng Yao’s anger still did not calm down. She then went to her phone contacts and changed Qian Heng’s name to this.
At about two o’clock in the afternoon, Cheng Yao prepared the meeting materials and sat in the meeting room two minutes in advance. But she was shocked to see Qian Heng, a veteran lawyer and boss of a law firm, also waiting for the client in the meeting room instead of answering emails in his office.
Cheng Yao felt very empathetic towards him,”Boss, if you have anything to do,you can go back to the office. I will call you when the client arrives.”
In the last law firm where Cheng Yao interned, although the lawyer and the client scheduled an appointment in advance, most clients always came late. The most extreme client Cheng Yao had encountered before, once made her wait for full two hours.
China’s legal market is not mature enough and the client’s concept of punctuality is still far from being cultivated. Many lawyers face this frustrating situation. To not waste time by waiting for the client, most of the big shot lawyers ask their interns or assistant lawyers to wait in the conference room first, and then notify them when their clients arrive. Otherwise, they would not be able to handle their other cases.
But Qian Heng didn’t appreciate Cheng Yao’s kindness at all and gave her a quick glance. “No need.” He smiled arrogantly and said each word slowly, “I, Qian Heng never wait for anyone. If you are late even by one minute, for me that would mean you don’t want to work with me anymore.” He glanced at Cheng Yao with some sympathy, “You haven’t been in a good law firm before, that’s why you’re used to pampering clients. You need to change these bad habits that you’ve developed from other law firms.”
Almost as soon as he finished speaking, the administrative colleague knocked on the door, and then led two people into the meeting room.
Cheng Yao looked at her watch subconsciously. It was precisely two o’clock, not more than a minute.
It was a man and a woman who came in. The man was wearing a normal casual jacket, while the woman was covered from head to toe. They both were a little strange. They were obviously indoors, but they were still wearing hats, sunglasses and masks.
Although she didn’t know who the man was, but she was sure that the woman was undoubtedly Li Yan, Qian Heng’s party.
As soon as the man entered the meeting room, he glanced at Cheng Yao warily.
“This is Cheng Yao, my assistant lawyer. She will also participate in this case together with me.” Qian Heng glanced at Cheng Yao, “She has signed a non disclosure agreement.”
After hearing this, the man seemed to be relieved, and Li Yan then took off her sunglasses and mask.
Cheng Yao was about to give the meeting materials to Li Yan. But when she raised her head, she was so shocked that her soul almost escaped out of her body.
‘Li Yan? Is this really Li Yan!’
It was Bai Xingmeng that appeared in front of Cheng Yao! Her favourite actress who played the role of Lingyao, Bai Xingmeng!
“Bai Xingmeng is her stage name.”
Qian Heng probably couldn’t stand her stupid face, and gave Cheng Yao a concise explanation.
So, Bai Xingmeng’s real name is… Li Yan?
This was simply too shocking, as if the famous senior hair stylist Tony returned home for the New Year and became the village’s Liu Dazhuang… 2
What was more shocking was that the scandal between Xu Jun and Bai Xingmeng was not a rumor! The two not only fell in love, but also even got married and then got divorced!
Cheng Yao never expected that one day she would be blessed because of Qian Heng. She never expected she would be able to get in touch with the entertainment industry and see the living Bai Xingmeng so close.
