While he helped Janet get back on her feet, who was now startled and had fallen straight into his bosom, Brian laughed out loud, and said, "Janet, just follow your own course in life and let the others blabber all they want! A clean hand needs no washing. So don't be sad and upset when others talk about things they have no idea about in the first place."

'Brian is right!' she thought. Janet then looked on the bright side of things, and walked towards the camping area along with Brian.

At the underground parking lot of the SL Group

It was rush hour and many cars were steadily parked one by one on the parking spaces.

A woman got out of a black Volkswagen and restlessly knocked on the window of a Chery car parked next to it. An employee got out of the car, and asked, "What's up?"

"Madeline, I just learned a fresh piece of news about Janet from one of the interns. Have you heard it?"

"What news? Tell me, please! I won't get another chance to learn it if we enter the company." The woman called Madelin closed her car door and then started to gossip with excitement.

"I heard that last night Janet and Mr. Han entered the woods and stayed there for a long time. A colleague of ours, who was just taking a walk in the woods, was surprised to see..."

"Tell me, quick!" demanded the other woman.

"...Mr. Han holding Janet tightly in his arms. And, just while they were kissing, they were suddenly interrupted by her!"

"Oh my God! They stayed in the woods for that long and were still kissing even after they had been discovered? Anyway, Mr. Han is, after all, a military officer, so Janet is very lucky to have him as a boyfriend!"

... When they nearly finished talking about the hot topic, the two women dared to walk towards the company's elevator.

The employees were now kept under strict surveillance on the company's grounds, and the ones who were caught gossiping were now instantly punished.

They had talked outside the company, indeed, but someone who was near them at that time, and who they couldn't see, had heard all of their conversation. A man smoking a cigarette sat in a Rolls-Royce with the window rolled down.

The cigarette had already burned out and had almost burnt his hand, but the man didn't seem to feel nothing at all.

He just stared at his documents in the car while Spark, who sat in the front seat, was afraid to even take a full breath of air.

He was staring at the same page for several minutes, lost in thought.

After putting out the cigarette butt, which had now burned his hand, Daniel put away the document, and told Spark, "Our company now pays more attention to this small batch of interns, and now I have to inspect their military training status at once."

Spark was silent, and wondered since when had Daniel started to speak with him in such an indirect fashion.

Daniel had found a good enough reason and it was normal for the others not to know what he was going to do next. But Spark firmly believed that if he couldn't get to know Daniel's true goals and purposes then he definitely wasn't qualified to be his special assistant anymore.

"OK, Mr. Si."

When they heard that Daniel was soon going to inspect the intern's military training, the company's employees started to get restless and immediately contacted the person that was in charge with them in the suburb.

But, after they called several times, they still couldn't get in touch with the person in charge there. Maybe it was because the suburb was so remote.

They tried calling over and over again but to no avail.

The employees in the company were very anxious and very worried that, if Mr. Si saw that the interns were undisciplined and lazy during the military training, his punishment would be more than severe with them.

At the Northern suburb of the city

The weather was hot that day, and all members took a break on the spot for ten minutes after the war game. After that, they began to practice standing at attention.

Brian had already noticed that Janet was starting to get really pale, but he couldn't do anything to help her because of the rumors that were spreading about what had happened between him and Janet last evening.

He also couldn't sit next to her to help her, so he just had to let all of them take breaks again and again.

Within only 10 minutes of standing at attention, Janet began experiencing shortness of breath and dizziness, and soon didn't even have the strength to inform the instructor of her condition.

When Jordan saw that Janet couldn't keep to her feet any more, he quickly ran to her help, choosing to ignore the gossips.

While Janet struggled to keep her eyelids open, she

saw Brian, and cried out two words enfeebled, "Excuse me..."

After this, she fainted, not knowing what happened next to her.

Brian helped Janet, who was about to fall, stand up on her feet, and cried out her name, "Janet!" Even after he cried out her name for several times, she still didn't wake up.

Other colleagues of hers also panicked when they saw Janet suddenly faint, and so they gathered around her to see what had happened to her.

Brian held Janet in his arms, and said, "I'll take her to the hospital."

He ran towards his military vehicle, but suddenly a Rolls-Royce, which seemed not to belong to that place, stopped next to him just before he opened his car's door.

Without thinking too much, Brian opened the backseat door of his car and put Janet, who was blacked out, on it.

When Brian got out of his car, Daniel saw the girl on the backseat of the military vehicle.

Daniel was a little surprised when he looked at her. When he was about to get closer to make sure that she was, indeed, Janet, Brian had already closed the car's door and was ready to drive away.

When she saw that Daniel showing up unexpectedly, the Personnel Director asked all interns to stand at attention at once and walked up to him to greet him alone.

"Mr. Si, here you are!"

Daniel looked at the interns, who were standing at attention, and found that Janet wasn't there!

"Why is there one person missing?" asked Daniel.

Um... To the Personnel Director's surprise, Daniel had asked this question first, which made her freeze on the spot because she was lacking a proper answer for it.

Only after Spark winked at her did she start to stammer: "Mr. Si... Janet... She just fainted earlier, and Mr. Han took her to the hospital for proper care."

'She just fainted?'

Daniel, who still looked sober as usual, walked up to the instructors and shook hands with them. After that, he spoke to the interns who were standing at attention: "Please keep working hard during the training and you can earn a double salary for these days. The intern with the best performance will immediately become a regular employee in our company's staff."

When they heard Daniel's words, all of them thanked him and got so excited that they almost jumped up out of their shoes, "Thank you, Mr. Si!"

"Thank you, Mr. Si!" replied another.

They spoke their thanks one by one, not in unison. Daniel nodded at them and then left with Spark.

"Spark, please drive faster."

"Spark, haven't you eaten breakfast today? Why are you driving so slow?"

"Spark, step on it!" demanded Daniel.


Spark was now cold sweating. He was driving very fast, and he boldly said to Daniel, "Mr. Si, you've just asked me to drive downtown as fast as possible, but you haven't figured out yet in which hospital Janet is..."

After a moment's silence, Daniel impatiently replied to him, "Just shut up and check it for me!"

In the military hospital

All people present were surprised to see Brian running into the hospital with a woman in his arms.

"Please help me! Ask Mr. Wan to come here!"

The orderly nodded and immediately ran to Mr. Wan's office.

Brian took Janet to the examination room and Mr. Wan hastily came in.

"Please help! Check what's wrong with her!" demanded Brian.

Mr. Wan was surprised when he saw the pale little girl on the bed and glanced at Brian with a meaningful look in his eyes.

"She's not a member of the military, " he said.

Without answering to him directly, Brian, who was very worried, impatiently said, "Don't ask me too much. Just check on her, quick!"

Mr. Wan was surprised to see Brian this anxious.

He had known Brian for more than ten years, but had never seen him so upset.

Brian now seemed to be losing his temper more than ever, and it was just for a woman.

Mr. Wan switched on his instruments next to him and picked up the stethoscope in his hands.

Brian worried that he would disturb him when he was trying to determine a diagnosis, so he left the examination room and decided to wait outside.

Ten minutes later

Brian, who was waiting outside, immediately walked up to Mr. Wan when he saw him come out of the room, and asked, "What's wrong with her?"

After he took off his gauze mask, Mr. Wan shook his head, and replied, "It's nothing serious. She just gets weak because of her menstrual cramps. She's also exhausted, that's why she fainted."

... Brian had a swarthy face which now turned completely red as he blushed.

"And what is there to be done?"

Brian had never taken any women to the hospital, so he knew nothing about this. Mr. Wan looked at him, and joked, "Who is she? Your girlfriend?"
