A Slight Smile is Very Charming (微微一笑很倾城) : Shan Shan Side Story 3 6


Wei Wei and Shan Shan Side Story 3

Feng Teng Technology’s general manager is under a lot of pressure these days.

CEO Feng, who usually cares only about their operational status, is suddenly interested in reviewing the details for an online game developed by one of their partner companies.  What is going on?  He is being so specific to the point where he expresses that a certain career (of an avatar) is too strong, so it needs to be weakened in order to balance it out with the others……

The general manager quickly gathers his staff for a department meeting.

“Does anyone feel that the musician is too strong among all the careers available?  Should we make it weaker?”

His staff looks at each other’s faces and then says, “It’s true that this career type has been very strong in the past, but after tweaking it a few times, its skills have already been weakened a lot.  It has already caused uproar from the players.  If we continue to make it weaker, we’re afraid that the avatars of this career type will become useless.”

The general manager also feels very vexed, “This is an order from CEO Feng.  CEO Feng has never taken interest in the details of online games.  Why has he suddenly……”

One of the staff members interrupts, “If I remember correctly, Zhi Yi’s CEO Xiao is a musician in the game……Could it be that CEO Feng went to PK with him?”

——Someone has actually unveiled the truth!

The staff members look at each other, and then feel that this is very possible.  Firstly, the fact that CEO Feng knows about this character——it means that he must have played the game before.  If he has really played it, it’s very likely that he has played it with CEO Xiao——and he definitely would lose for sure.

The general manager quickly reminds everyone, “Make sure you all forget about this the minute you walk out of this conference room!”

——We definitely can’t let others know that our Boss lost to our partnering company in a game!

The staff members nod their heads right away, and then ask, “So do we still need to make the musician’s skills weaker?”

The general manager answers, “No.  Even if we make it weaker, CEO Feng still won’t be able to win.  It’s a waste of effort.”

Staff members, “(⊙o⊙)……Mr. General Manager, is it alright for you to be so straightforward?”

General Manager, “……Make sure you also forget what I just said after leaving this conference room.”


A few days later, the general manager of Feng Teng Technology stumbles his way back to his department after a conference meeting.  He tells his staff with watery eyes, “Oh Xiao Han, I might not last too long in the company.”

Xiao Han asks in shock, “Did something happen at the meeting just now?”

General Manager says, “It wasn’t during the meeting, it was afterwards.  CEO Feng told me to stay behind and he asked about the request on making the musician weaker again.”

Xiao Han, “So……how did you respond?”

General Manager, “I said, ‘making it weaker won’t be of any use.  CEO Feng, why don’t I help you get some cheat codes?’”

Xiao Han, “……”

How could you tell him what you feel in your heart?  General Manager, ever since you got transferred to a technology company, you’ve been hanging out with the programming guys for too long, haven’t you?  It looks like you’ve lost your skill to spin the truth!

The general manager says depressingly, “Xiao Han, how long do you think I’ll last?”

“……” Xiao Han replies with determination, “General Manager, I’ll follow you wherever you go!”


On the other side of City B.

YuGong saunters into Xiao Nai’s office, “What’s going on?  What’s going on?  Why is Feng Teng Technology being so picky all of a sudden?  They’ve provided so much feedback on detailed areas.”

Xiao Nai shifts his gaze away from the computer for a few seconds and then goes back, “Nothing.  I’ve been playing a few PK battles with their CEO Feng in the game recently.”

YuGong, “……So you’ve slashed our investor into several pieces?”

Xiao Nai says nonchalantly, “That I didn’t do.  I usually let him tie with me, but a few days ago, after we finished a PK battle, he asked me how his skill was.”

YuGong, “……How did you answer him?  Why do I suddenly feel helpless?  You didn’t say something regretful, did you?”

Xiao Nai says unconcernedly, “Relax, I’m always indirect with my words.”

YuGong feels more and more helpless, “What exactly did you say?”

“I said, ‘you’re at about the same level as your wife.’”

“……”

YuGong walks out of his office while leaning on the wall for support.
