Chapter 1568: The Meet-the-parents’ Session (3)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
From the info provided by the production team to Min Yu, the woman was having dance lessons, and most of her days were spent in the training room.
How busy she was, indeed!
He sighed inwardly as a wry laughter escaped his mouth. His mood plummeted a little.
He indignantly felt the need to neglect that woman who had no sense of priority so that she could have a taste of how it felt to be neglected!
The meet-the-parents’ session was set to start at 2 PM.
Calculating the time he had before then, he arranged all his works for the day to be settled before noon.
For meetings, those that could be brought forward would be pushed to an earlier slot, whereas those that could not would be moved to the following day.
With his son’s words in mind, he summoned his assistant to find him a car which was less flashy.
His subordinate furrowed his brows in bafflement. “Boss, I don’t get what you mean. What do you intend to do?”
He shot him a look. “I’m asking you to get me something lowkey.”
“Something like the Volkswagen Phaeton.”
Such an understated car?!
The assistant probed him. “Boss, why are you changing car?”
He answered, “I want to keep a low profile.”
Min Yu’s jaw went slack in astonishment at his reply, though he went ahead and acted according to his boss’ order without further ado.
At the end of a morning meeting, the man returned to his office and realized that he had received two missed calls. He picked up the phone from his desk, swiped the screen, and realized that both calls belonged to the same unfamiliar number.
He returned the call as he sat before his desk.
A gentle and polite voice belonging to a woman came through when the call connected. “May I ask if you are Youyou’s father?”
He tensed for a bit and questioned back at once, “And you are?”
The woman politely replied, “My surname is Yuan, and I’m the boy’s form teacher. I’m sorry to disturb you, but may I ask if it’s convenient for you to make a trip to the school now?”
He took a gander at his watch with a frown.
It was only past 10 AM at the moment.
He could not help but be skeptical. “Isn’t the meet-the-parents’ session scheduled at 2 PM?”
“This has nothing to do with the session! Erm… Is it convenient for you to come over now? Something happened to your son, so I need you to come over to settle it!”
The teacher was being very polite.
She could feel the man’s oppressive aura through the phone so she did not dare speak out, lest she incur the man’s anger.
He looked at the time again. Since his son’s teacher called regarding an urgent matter for him to settle, he naturally could not put it aside.
Even though he still had an upcoming video conference right after this, it had to be postponed!
He answered in the affirmative. “Alright. I’ll make my way there now.”
“That’s great! I’ll be waiting for you at the teacher’s lounge, then.”
He ended the call, then stood up to pick up his coat from the clothes stand, and put it on. He bumped right into his assistant when he opened the door. The latter was holding several documents and proposals, which had been sorted out for the meeting that would be starting in a while.
He was surprised to see his superior all dressed up. “Boss, aren’t you feeling hot in such thick clothes? The heater has been switched on in the conference room.”
The man swiftly said, “I’m leaving. Postpone the meeting; we’ll proceed with it once I get back!”
“This… The directors are already waiting for you in the conference room! Do you have an emergency?”
