Chapter 6.1: 

Before going to bed that night, Lan Ning downloaded the stretching exercise from the internet. She followed the instruction in the video and felt refreshed before heading to bed.

The next day is still a working day. The company work hour starts at nine. Lan Ning arrives at eight forty, not too early and not too late.

Apple is sitting at her place eating bread. She see Lan Ning over, and handed her a piece of bread.

“No, thank you. I have bought breakfast from the stalls downstairs. So I have had enough.” La Ning thanked her, and pulled her chair before sitting down.

“Oh.”

Apple retreat her hand and continue to eat bread. The male colleague opposite her looked at her and joked: “Do you know why you gain weight? Other people after eaten will not eat again.”

Apple blinked her eyes a few times. She looked up at him: “But I do not fell full from eating ah……”

Male colleagues: “…………..”

Beside her, Lan Ning laughed. She turn on the computer. Apple with the bread in the mouth, vaguely asked her: “By the way, did you managed to see Teacher Xing Xin yesterday?”

“Yes, I did met him. But he seems unwilling to write. Editor had appeared on his doorstep and yet he can take it so lightly to drag the draft. This face really got no place to put already.”

Apple patted her shoulder to comfort: “Get used to it!”

Lan Ning: “……..”

After the computer had boot up, the first thing she did was to log into the penguin icon (QQ) and send Teacher Xing Xin message: “Teacher, good morning (sun icon). A new day starts from writing 🙂 ah!”

She cannot believe that by harassing him every day, he would still ignore her.

After nine am, everyone entered into the work mindset. Lan Ning’s task today is to continue with the uncompleted draft from yesterday. She read for more than one hour and then stretch herself. She open up the dialog box on QQ to have a look.

Teacher Xing Xin did not respond. But his personality icon had been replaced with a new signature.

People never know how lazy he can be. Lazy! – Aliyev Chomsky

Lan Ning: “…………..”

This horse riding is deliberately bickering with her, right?

Hua Ye Chai (Lan Ning online ID): Teacher, since you are awake, go and start writing! (curse) (curse) (curse)

Xing Xin this time no longer ignore her. He sent her an unprecedented replied to her message.

Xing Xin: Hua Ye Cai is this?

Cauliflower

Lan Ning: “………”

妈个鸡她能骂人吗!(this is a Chinese curse sentence – so I am not translating it…. Hehehe)
Hua Ye Cai: That is your pen name  more than once is said by the other writers and they like it! 

Xing Xin: It looks like you really don’t want the manuscript

Lan Ning: “……….”

Hua Ye Cai: Teacher, I always thought your pseudonym is very temperament.

Xing Xin: Okay. I have to go and write a hundred words in the manuscript,

Lan Ning: “…………….”

Rubbish!

She took a few deep breath and pick up the cup of lemonade to take a few sips. To go on like this, sooner or later she would go mad. She would need to spend more time reviewing it.

Suddenly she remember. What happen to the manuscript that she read yesterday?

She sent a message to Apple: “Yesterday, I have you the manuscript ‘祷告’. Have you read it?”

Apple: I read it. It is well written. I have sent it to the editor. After editor had finished reviewing it, the editor will contact you.

Hua Ye Cai: Okay
