CHAPTER 01 - Stressed over marriage

Author's POV

It was the last week of December, acclaimed for the 'Wedding month' as most couples are likely to get married this month.
In an enormous opened faultlessly planned room, which was giving the obsessive worker vibes.
A young woman remaining close to the counter was making refreshments for her associates. Her lovely earthy-colored hair was falling back, uncovering her delightful side. Her eyes were gleaming, brilliant like the sun. A grin shaped all over her face as she took the cups loaded up with espresso and strolled outward.
Putting cups on her partner's work areas, she moved to her friend, who looked disappointed. With a sweet, worried tone, she inquired. "What is wrong with you, Xia Na?" Turning her head, she confronted her as she clarified. "Same obviously, XingYue. The dealer isn't answering my messages, and I need to make this deal successful." Massaging her temples, she hurled herself back on the seat as she panted. "For what reason is my life so extreme? Gracious, god. Kindly favor me." Chuckling at her acting, XingYue passed the cup to her. "Here is your favorite cappuccino. Don't take the stress."
Gesturing her head, she took the cup and tasted it. "Mmm! You never disappoint me." Patting her head, she cheered her. "Xia Na, don't take the pressure, alright? You can crack this deal. Cheer up!"
Hugging her abdomen, she grinned. "You are the dearest friend somebody can at any point have. I love you. Muah!" Making a smacking sound, she extended her hands noticeably all around as she turned around to her laptop and began working.

Grinning at her, XingYue pivoted as she began strolling, just to get halted by a call. Closing her eyes in irritation, she ventured ahead to her work area to check the caller's name. Feigning exacerbation, she gazed at the screen when Xia Na talked. "For what reason are you not picking the call?" Pressing her lips together, she went to her and showed her her phone. Wrinkling her foreheads, she added. "Your mom is calling you for the fiftieth time."
"Furthermore, you should think about what she will talk about with me." She passed a pitiful grin, speculating. "About getting married?" Nodding her head in understanding, she articulated a murmur. "She only discusses with me about blind dates, marriage with me. It seems like she just thought often about me getting married or not?" Placing a hand on her shoulder, she communicated. "It's not like that. She wishes for a wonderful future for you." "And I'm living superbly. I don't have to get married for it."
While they were talking, a woman intruded on them. "Hello, guys. What are you discussing?"
"Talking about XingYue's marriage obviously, Tang Xue," reacted Xia Na.
Gaping at her place, she identified XingYue. "Try not to stress. Everything will be okay. Coincidentally, Mr. Han is searching for you." Making a gracious face, she stood up as she gathered documents from her work area and strolled to his cabin.

XingYue's POV

Working continuously, not even caring about the cold weather, I felt stressed. Nowadays I work overtime only to arrange everything perfectly well. I've been an assistant to Mr. Han for three years. He was a little old as he stayed stressed out because of the work, and his health didn't help well.
As he was getting old, his son would be going to replace him soon, and according to the sources, his son was a serious, hardworking, and cold-hearted person who needed everything perfect. Mr. Han wanted me to keep working hard and remained an assistant for him as well. His perfection was a stressful thing for me. I'm an assistant to the CEO of the Han entertainment company. Since the day I joined, Mr. Han treated me like a daughter, and the employees who worked here never let me feel alone. I got my best friends Xia Na, Tang Xue here.
Disregarding my musings, I knocked on the entryway as he allowed me to come in. With a drained face, I welcomed him. "Good day, Mr. Han. You were searching for me?" Gesturing me to sit down, he concurred. "Indeed, XingYue. I need to tell you that Han Shuo will join the organization tomorrow. Kindly be pleasant to him and coordinate well. I realize he is a little cold individual, yet trust me, he won't treat you horrendously."
Listening to him, I grinned. "Try not to stress. I will deal with him well."
A grinned put all over as he looked at the dark circles close to my eyes.
"It is safe to say that you are not resting soundly, Xing? Am I giving you a ton of work?"
Gesturing as if with my hands, I answered. "Actually, no, not under any condition. It's just my mom continuing to push me for marriage."
Leaning back in his seat, he laughed. "Once more? Why don't you acknowledge it? You realize your mother feels stressed over you." "
"I know, Mr. Han. But I'm not ready for the wedding at all. I want to live freely, and besides, I have a boyfriend who can come anytime from foreign." "Does your mom know about it?" he asked.
"No, she doesn't."
Crossing his arms, he commented. "Then tell her about your feelings. I'm sure she will understand. Go home early and talk to her, okay?"
Bowing my head, I took my leave as a sigh escaped from my mouth when my phone buzzed again. Pursuing my lips, I picked the call.

XingYue: Mom! I told you I'm working.

I heard a hollered from the opposite side as my mom reprimanded.

Mom: Why are you always working whenever I'm calling you? Are you trying to fool me?

XingYue: Mom, you're calling me non-stop in the morning. How can I focus on my work?

Mom: Stop whatever you're doing and come to the place I sent you.

Messaging her temples, she argued.

XingYue: I'm not going on any blind date. That is my final decision.

Laughing on the other side, she spoke sarcastically.

Mom: Oh, dear. You already lost your chance of going on dates. I fixed your marriage already.

I just started with a wide open-eyed cannot shut, like the entire world was breaking apart around me. I didn't even bother to move and just stood there in total paralysis, without realizing what would happen after that.
