Just as Nan Zhi’s lips were about to touch the cup, her gaze fell on her computer mouse on the table.
Strange, something wasn’t right.
Whenever she left her computer, she always had the habit of leaving her mouse straight. However, her mouse was crooked.
She glanced at the water in the cup again.
Nothing seemed to be wrong. Was she being too sensitive?
However, she had an ominous feeling, especially when she noticed Bai Weiwei staring at her suspiciously from the corner.
Nan Zhi schooled her features into an emotionless mask and acted like she drank the water, before she put the cup back down without a change in expression.
From Bai Weiwei’s angle, she thought that Nan Zhi had drank the water. At that moment, she was distracted by an incoming call on her cell phone. Picking up the call, she walked out of the office with her phone.
Nan Zhi narrowed her bright eyes. She took the cup and entered Bai Weiwei’s office, taking the chance since she was not around.
Most of the time, Nan Zhi was willing to give people the benefit of the doubt, as long as those people did not touch her bottom line. However, if people wanted to harm her, she would not hold back.
Nan Zhi poured a tiny amount of water from the cup into Bai Weiwei’s thermos flask.
In the company car.
Bai Weiwei stared discreetly at Nan Zhi from the corner of the eye. She could vaguely feel that something was wrong.
It had already been half an hour since Nan Zhi drank the drugged water. Why was there still no reaction? Maybe the drug needed a longer time to take effect!
Bai Weiwei took her thermos flask and drank some water.
“Weiwei, will President Tan still be our show’s exclusive sponsor?” Zhang Yijun asked.
Bai Weiwei nodded guiltily. She already had a backup plan. After their meeting that morning, she had secretly changed the USB drive their department submitted to Han Mo that morning into another one, so that she would have an excuse if they were not able to get a sponsor.
As they were about to arrive at the venue for the sponsors’ meeting, Bai Weiwei opened her mouth, wanting to say something when she noticed that nothing had happened to Nan Zhi. Suddenly, she felt a strong pain pierce at her throat.
“Ah… ah…!” her voice had become hoarse and husky.
“My throat…” Bai Weiwei’s face turned pale. Her stomach was a little uncomfortable. She let out a dry heave a few times and her stomach started to hurt painfully almost immediately.
Zhang Yijun, who was sitting with Bai Weiwei, noticed the difference in her behavior. He asked worriedly, “Bai Weiwei, what’s wrong? Are you okay?”
Bai Weiwei caressed her throat as her face turned red. She was slightly breathless as she rasped out, “Director Zhang, I feel really horrible. Quick, take me to the hospital, quick…”
Everyone in the car was surprised when they heard Bai Weiwei’s hoarse voice. It sounded as though her voice had cracked.
Nan Zhi was surprised as well.
She had guessed that Bai Weiwei had drugged her water. However, she originally thought that it was a sleeping pill or laxative to embarrass her at the sponsors’ meeting. Who would have guessed it was something much, much worse.
She never imagined it would have been a drug capable of ruining one’s throat.
It was lucky she had only poured a bit of water into Bai Weiwei’s water. If she poured the entire cup, Bai Weiwei would have probably become mute!
Nan Zhi did not sympathize the woman, who by now had beads of cold sweat on her forehead, her face had paled to a ghostly white.
In trying to harm others, she had only ended up harming herself. Perhaps this was what they called karma.
Nan Zhi was only returning the favor. Who knew what would have happened if she didn’t trust her instincts.
Zhang Yijun did not think that something like this would happen so suddenly. No matter how much he disliked Bai Weiwei, he could not blame her, she seemed to be in agony. As the director, he felt helpless, there was nothing he could do.
“Nan Zhi, you get a taxi first and head to the meeting venue with Xia Xi. You will have to give the presentation on stage if I get there in time.”
Nan Zhi and Xia Xi got off the car before the company’s car turned and drove towards the hospital.
Xia Xi was still in shock as she patted her chest. “Bai Weiwei was fine all morning. Why would her throat suddenly become like that?”
Nan Zhi did not intend to hide the truth from Xia Xi. The young woman was innocent and always helped her. She did not want to hide the fact that Bai Weiwei was only reaping what she sowed.
After Xia Xi listened to Nan Zhi’s account of what had happened, she was filled with righteousness anger as she waved her fist in the air. “That’s too vicious. F**k, you should have poured the whole thing into her thermos and let her ruin herself! What an evil b*tch!”
