My Son Might Be A Villain - Chapter 15
“Hmm, I haven’t noticed whether Hong-jie has arrived yet. Why don’t you go inside and look for her yourself?”
Su Ran walked around the dimly lit club. Before she was able to locate Xiao Hongmei, she was stopped by another woman.
“Xiao Ran, you are so early today.”
Xiao Xia was a distant relative that Hong-jie brought with her from her hometown. She was usually fairly nice to the original owner.
“Is Hong-jie not in yet?”
“My cousin? You don’t say.” As though she had recalled something else, Xiao Xia added, “She came back in the middle of the night last night. When she got back, her face was entirely blackened. She shouted at Xiao Ling and the others so much that they almost started to cry.
“By the way, I heard that you got out of the car midway?”
Before Su Ran had a chance to respond to her, Xiao Xia nodded and said, “Let me tell you, you lucked out for not going last night.”
Even though she didn’t know exactly what had happened at the venue, she could tell it was bad just from the way the girls looked when they returned. From what she could gleamed out of what her cousin had said, the bosses there weren’t happy with the quality of the girls that she had brought with her and got upset right away. A few of the girls came back injured.
Hearing that, Su Ran tightened her lips and didn’t ask any more questions.
“Where’s Hong-jie right now then?”
“She’s not here, she left early today with the two new girls who joined this month.” Probably went back to apologize to the big boss.
After all, they couldn’t afford to offend any of the big bosses doing what they do.
“What do you want to talk to my cousin about so early in the day?”
“I want to quit. I just want to give Hong-jie a heads up.” When the original owner first came here, she was forced to sign a 5-year contract. Back then, she couldn’t leave even if she wanted to. Now, even Su Han was already in junior high school, so the contract had expired a long time ago. Except that toward the end, Su Ran could no longer get away from her source of income.
“You? You are going to quit?!” Xiao Xia was very surprised.
Many girls joined this profession for all sorts of reasons or purposes, but there was one type of person that Xiao Xia felt that they’d root themselves there and never go anywhere else, and she had pegged Su Ran as one of them.
She wasn’t young anymore, had no family, and had nothing else other than her looks. She has no skills. On top of that, she was shallow and had the knack to spend every penny that she earned. What else could she do other than staying in this industry?
“Are you going to one of our competitors?”
She supposed that was that possibility. Su Ran was considered old by the standard of this industry. She seemed to have some bad reputations in the field a while back, but nobody could deny that she was a very pretty woman.
“Of course not.”
“Then you’ve found yourself a wealthy man?”
Xiao Xia immediately struck out that idea.
That wasn’t possible. Su Ran might have some rich regulars a few years back, but none of them expressed that they’d like a long time “financial relationship” with Su Ran.
Borrowing Uncle Wang’s words, Su Ran said, “I am going to have a career change.”
“You are kidding me, right?” Xiao Xia stared at Su Ran and suddenly had the feeling that the-girl-whom-she-had-been-keeping-an-eye-out-on-and-had-plans-to-promote-to-become-manager-had-suddenly-decided-to-quit.
“Never mind, never mind. It’s your call.” Xiao Xia waved her hand and didn’t want to continue with the subject. “But my cousin is out right now and I have no idea what time she’d be back. I don’t suggest you wait for her today.”
“Alright, I’ll wait and talk to Hong-jie when she is in. Oh, there’s just one more thing.”
“What one more thing? I don’t deal with personnel matters. It won’t help you to talk to me about it.”
“No, it has nothing to do with me quitting this job. I just want to borrow the private room for a little bit. Oh, and the piano as well.”
