Chapter 4 – The System’s Mission
Although Xia Ming looked pleased, the more he looked like this, the more Wang Tao was wary of him.
“There is no need, I don’t have time.” Wang Tao waved his hands impatiently.
At this moment, Lin Wanqing suddenly stared at Wang Tao which made him think, “This is bad.”
He knew this was a sign of her anger, how could he forget she was still talking to him earlier? It made him flinched.
“Your English is really only at Level 4?” Lin Wanqing questioned him.
She only wanted to make sure that if his English was only at Level 4, she would leave and not bother him anymore. Their company currently needs a translator, especially an English translator. And even with a Level 8 English wasn’t sufficient, he needs to be proficient in speaking and knows the technical terms. A person like this was indeed hard to find.
“Yes, my English is indeed Level 4.” Xia Ming revealed a harmless smile.
GM Lin, I told you. He didn’t excel in his studies all along and is always lazy in whatever he did. Let’s just head over there.” Wang Tao said.
Because of the conflict which happened in university, seeing Xia Ming this state, Wang Tao naturally didn’t want him to be in Qingya Group. He wanted Xia Ming to see for himself that even though he was great in the past, he is nothing after entering society. That was why he made an effort to say bad things about him in front of Lin Wanqing.
His goal was for him to leave a bad impression on her.
But a person such as Lin Wanqing could see that it was not amicable between the both of them. However, she was disappointed after hearing Xia Ming’s words.
“Perhaps, you don’t fit the criteria of our company.”
Lin Wanqing turned him down politely. Wang Tao was beaming with joy at the sight of this. He glared at Xia Ming and lifted his head up, as if provoking him.
Xia Ming was worried hearing that. At that moment, a beep suddenly appeared in his head.
“The mission for host is to enter the company of the beautiful lady in front of you. You will be rewarded 100 honor points. If you fail the mission, system will deem host as unqualified and destroy host so I hope you will work hard.”
“What is this? System’s mission?”
The sudden system’s mission made him dizzy so he immediately asked, “Why is the mission so sudden? What if I really can’t complete it? Are you really going to destroy me?”
He got flustered, he only wanted to be an office worker and spend his days sitting in the office every day. If he was destroyed, of course he wouldn’t be willing.
Xia Ming promptly shouted after seeing Lin Wanqing turning her back to leave, “That’s right, I forgot to tell you.”
He quickly told her, “Although my English is only at Level 4, my English standard definitely surpasses Level 8. I have no difficulties conversing with a foreigner and I know many technical terms……”
When Xia Ming said the two words ‘techinical terms’, Lin Wanqing who had turned to leave stopped in her steps. She glanced at him, her delicate face with an indescribable feeling. She questioned him with doubts, “Are you saying the truth?”
“Of course, I am.” Xia Ming hurriedly explained.
“GM Lin, don’t be fooled by him. He lies the moment he opens his mouth. I know very well about his English standard, GM Lin.” Wang Tao was flustered hearing him and quickly explained.
The anger in Xia Ming grew and he retorted, “Wang Tao, what do you mean by this? What do you mean by me lying the moment I open my mouth? It’s as I have no taste at all. And, how do you know my English standard? Are you the roundworm in my stomach? I said my English is Level 8 but you persistently say it is Level 4, is there such a person like you?”
Xia Ming was furious and he couldn’t help but stare fiercely at Wang Tao.
“GM Lin, you have to trust me.” Wang Tao painstakingly persuaded but Lin Wanqing didn’t look good. Wang Tao turned his eyes and added on, “GM Lin, we would know his capabilities once he shows it. Why don’t we test him since he said his English is Level 8 and knows many technical terms?”
She was also uncertain with Xia Ming’s words, since a Level 8 English was not something everyone can achieve. And as for the technical terms, he needed to remember a large number of vocabulary. This was a study of one’s memory.
Seeing her not speak a word, Wang Tao promptly suggested, “GM Lin, let me test him on your behalf.”
He pulled out his cellphone and started searching online. The cellphone today is equivalent to a computer, it is very advanced. You can search for a lot of things using your cellphone and it is also very convenient. You can say that it’s the generation of cellphones now.
After finding for a while, he found an article with a relatively uncommon vocabulary. It was an article on machinery and there were many professional terms in it, some terms were also not commonly seen. It can be said that an average person won’t be able to understand this article, even some professionals require a long time to do it.
Wang Tao took a look at the article and laughed in his heart, “Hmmph, look at yourself in the mirror before entering Qingya Group.”
He chuckled thinking of that.
Xia Ming knew Wang Tao didn’t have any good intentions with the lewd smile on his face.
But he wasn’t afraid because he knew his situation better than anyone.
“Xia Ming, there’s an article here. Since your English is Level 8 and you say know a lot of technical terms, if what you said is true, this article does not pose any difficulty for you. So, translate this article.” Wang Tao had a bossy look towards Xia Ming. In his view, Xia Ming didn’t stand a chance to enter Qingya Group at all.
He clearly knew what kind of morals Xia Ming had.
Xia Ming casually glaced at Wang Tao but didn’t take his cellphone and said disdainfully, “I have to do whatever you ask me to do? Then, I’m losing face?”
Wang Tao’s face turned livid with rage at his words. If it wasn’t because Lin Wanqing was next to him, he was afraid he would flare up on the spot. He held onto his anger and looked at her afterwards.
“Why don’t we do this? If you can translate this whole article, I will hire you on the spot with a monthly salary of $10,000, how does that sound?”
Lin Wanqing at the side took over Wang Tao’s cell phone and suggested after taking a look at the article.
“Very well, GM Lin. This is what you said, $10,000 a month, you can’t go back on your words.” Xia Ming’s eyes lit up. $10,000 a month, this was something he could only dream of. Many university graduates could only earn around $2,000 a month in their first job. If he could have the $10,000 job, it was simply a good thing that can’t be found with lanterns.
Lin Wanqing was in dismal, would she go back on her words? After all, she’s the GM of Qingya Group. Her words were of enormous weight so how could she go back on her words?
Wang Tao at the side was a person who discerns what somebody thinks from their body language. He knew what was up seeing her beautiful face grew stiff. He immediately pointed at Xia Ming and went off, “Xia Ming, take a look at yourself. Who is GM Lin? She’s the Chairman of Qingya Group. Do you think everyone is like you, an erratic person?”
Wang Tao was thrilled after saying that. It was simply too great. Xia Ming obviously dug his own grave and Wang Tao performed well in front of Lin Wanqing, she might look at him in a new light.
He always coveted for such a beautiful lady like her. Who wouldn’t be attracted to such a beautiful lady like her? Not to mention that he isn’t a eunuch. Facing a lady like her, he naturally wanted to show his good sides to her. However, she was continuously blunt to him.
“Very well, I will translate it now.”
Xia Ming took over the cellphone and casually scanned it. Seeing such an indifferent look on him, Wang Tao hummed, “Stop pretending. You don’t even know how to write a word on a daily basis so dream on acting big. Today, I want to see how you are going to translate this article. If you can’t do so, don’t blame me for not showing mercy on you.”
Xia Ming responded after taking a look for a few seconds, “This is an article on machinery on mechanical design, improving old products with new ones to meet human needs on applied science and technology. The different areas of engineering technology that he has designed are mainly on researching the size of the product……”
He started to translate the article which left Wang Tao bewildered. He broke out in a cold sweat in the end as he looked at him with a face full of shock.
“How is it possible? How is this possible? How is it possible for him to translate such a difficult article? This was an article that he had seen on the internet before. There were many technical terms in it, these words were extremely remote and used in large quantities. How could he translate the whole article? Even professionals can’t do it as smooth as him.”
“He must have seen the article somewhere, he must have.”
Wang Tao didn’t believe Xia Ming could translate the entire article at all, he knew what English standard he had. Also, his English was terrible before graduating, how could he have known so many technical terms just a few days after graduating?”
This was simply something impossible?
On the contrary, Lin Wanqing at the side had a face full of surprise as she looked at Xia Ming. Their company needed a professional staff indeed, especially in the area of English. It was just that the people in this aspect was too hard to find, she even tried finding for days but to no avail. Even though she had found some professional staffs, they obviously did not meet their requirements.
But, Xia Ming gave Lin Wanqing hope.
“Not bad, it’s you. You are now a staff of Qingya Group.”
