Chapter 1: The way things are for the cool, suave and handsome—translated by Elkin (proofread by EvlNabiki & Trespasserby; C/E edited by Amgine & lucathia)
I finally managed to get out of the office, feeling dead tired. Having done overtime for the past few days, today, I could finally… only work two more hours of overtime.
Being able to get off work on time was like that LV1 handbag in the shop window—it was something you couldn’t help but drool over, but had no way of affording! But never mind, the company’s overtime pay was pretty decent and was in line with labor laws. Doing more overtime also meant more money, which was always good. That apartment I saw last time with Mom had looked quite decent, but it was such a pity about the price. After doing some calculations, I had realized that I had no way of affording the down payment, so I had no choice but to give up on it.
It’s better if I continue working for two more years. By then, I’ll be able to afford a house within that price range. Right now, the ones that are within my budget really aren’t up to scratch…
I looked over, watching in surprise as a boy with a sunny expression jogged up to me. This fellow was always rash and careless like a kid. Every time I put on make up to go out on a date with him, people would always mistake me for his older sister. Damn it! I’m younger than him by a year, okay?!
I glowered at his vest, beach shorts, and slippers and asked, “Zhengu, why’re you here?”
