Chapter 101 You better be sober
“No.” She quickly denied that she was not a masochist.
“There is no best, so be sober, Penn is not your lover.” Blair actually rarely denies a person’s feelings, she always thinks that life is short, live as happy as possible, live the present, don’t think about the future.
But she just felt that Penn was a taboo for Serena, and she had to stay away, otherwise she didn’t know how she would die in the future.
“Relax, I’m wide awake,” she said.
Regarding Charlie ‘s pursuit, she can only say that she does not reject. it, and is willing to give each other a chance to get in touch. What if, what if she falls in love?
But recently, she has no time to take care of love affairs, because she is working on the acquisition project of Fortune Finance and Investment Company. Although the Justice Law Office is in the lawyer pool of Fortune Finance and Investment Company, it has never cooperated with them. They were invited to participate in the bidding just to make up the number with the company.
Serena felt it when she visited her for the first time. She was received by an assistant from the strategy department of Fortune Finance and Investment Company, who was very perfunctory to her, “Put the relevant information here, and I will submit it to Mr. Baker.”
When will Mr. Baker finish his work? Can you arrange the time for me, I want to have a deeper understanding of the needs of this acquisition.”
Mr. Baker is not in the company. You can check the relevant
information online. When the bidding time comes, I will notify you.” The assistant left the reception room after finishing speaking, without giving her any chance to speak again.
Serena had no choice but to go back home, thinking about how to contact the real person in charge, Mr. Baker.
After returning home from Fortune Finance and Investment Company, I turned on the computer non–stop to check information. This home has truly made life easier since installing a suite of products from Better Future Technology Company. Just like a meticulous housekeeper, remembering your life habits for you, when she is watching TV or working on the computer, the light will be automatically adjusted to the light that makes her feel comfortable; when she wants to take a bath, the water temperature, The light is automatically adjusted, and the bath towels are hung there fluffy and dry after being sterilized; when she can’t sleep at night, she plays a soothing lullaby.
Her computer was hung with Whatsapp, and when she was busy until 12 o’clock in the evening, a picture on Whatsapp was beating, and it was Penn sending good night.
Not much to say, regarding the recent movement of Better Future Technology Company, she got a few words from Blair, Penn should bring Kelly and Eric to the headquarters, and Blair doesn’t know exactly what they are doing, she is only in charge of hunting and hiring.
The chat interface scrolled up, and there were some greetings from Penn, and she never replied. Just as she put down her phone and was about to turn off her computer and go to sleep, she suddenly heard the doorbell ring.
Her whole body is tense, who will come at this point?
She opened the door lock video on the mobile app, and the corridor
outside the video was empty and empty. But her doorbell kept ringing, as if someone was ringing and ringing.
It was eerie, and the hairs all over her body stood on end.
In fact, this was not the first time, it was the third time, in the middle of the night, the doorbell rang for no reason, but there was no one outside.
Originally, she never replied to Penn ‘s messages, but at this time, she was flustered and scared. For the first time, she directly sent a video request.
With just one sound, he answered it, as if in a meeting, and whispered to her
Then there was a rustling sound, it should be him leaving the meeting room with his mobile phone.
“Not asleep yet?” he asked, the camera held very close.
Seeing him, Serena let go of her fear just now.
“What happens if your smart lock fails?” She is a materialist and believes in science.
“Is the lock broken?”
“Well, it has rang a few times for no reason in the last few days.”
Penn frowned. This smart lock from Better Future Technology Company has been on the market for several years, and this situation has never happened. It should not be a problem with the lock. Could it be someone’s prank?
He thought so in his heart, but he didn’t show it, not wanting to scare her.
“Maybe there is a problem with the lock, just wait a moment, I will ask the technical department to check.”
“Don’t worry, it’s late at night, let’s talk about it tomorrow.” It’s definitely a lock problem, so there’s nothing to be afraid of
“It’s okay, our technical department has a 24–hour service, and someone is on duty” Penn insisted on sending someone to her house, knowing that she was really scared, otherwise her personality would not be able to call him late at night.
Serena saw him call the technical department of Better Future Technology Company, inform them of the details and address, and ask them to come here now. After arranging all this, it is time to return to the video.
It was probably late at night, when she was sleeping, so she was in a daze, sitting on the sofa with her pillow in her arms, in a daze.
“Don’t hang up the video, wait for the people from the technical department to come, and I’ll tell them.”
When the doorbell rang again, Serena felt a chill down her spine, subconsciously stood up and looked towards the door.
“Go and open the door.” Penn’s gentle and calm voice came, and Serena finally let go of her hanging heart.
He opened the door, gave the phone to the technical department, and only listened to Penn’s orderly arrangement of the parts they needed to check. In fact, he is very sure that such low–level mistakes will not occur in the products of Better Future Technology Company, and the
possibility of neighbors playing pranks is even greater. But in order to prevent Serena from thinking wildly, at least to sleep peacefully
tonight, he asked the technical department to release the smart function of the lock and replace it with the normal mode.
Serena couldn’t understand these technical problems, and really thought it was a broken lock. She was relieved to see that they had fixed it, and after sending them off, she said good night to Penn and wanted to hang up the video.
Serena, you can stay in a hotel, I still need half a month to go back to the United States, you can stay in my suite first, the hotel is more convenient.” Penn said with concern. The technology sent him a private message just now, the lock is not broken, watching the surveillance video of the lock, no one is playing a prank. The implication is that the doorbell didn’t ring at all, it was Serena ‘s own hallucination.
Although the Penn people are not around, they have been paying attention to her. Knowing that she has taken on a new project, it must be caused by too much work pressure.
Serena rejected his proposal to stay in a hotel, “No, thank you tonight.” After finishing speaking, she turned off the video without hesitation.
I was very tired, I thought I could fall asleep when I turned my head down, but I couldn’t fall asleep after tossing and turning. It feels like there is an antenna in the brain, which is scanning the surrounding environment keenly, receiving all kinds of information, and then the information fills the mind, and it is about to explode.
This state lasted for almost half a month, and it became more and more severe. From the original frequency of waking up every two hours, now I can’t fall asleep almost all night.
During the day, she worked at the Justice Law Office. She put on a lot
of energy and put on makeup, so no one could tell that she was
abnormal. But at night, after returning home, she was overwhelmed by the exhaustion, fear, and insomnia.
