The Genius Doctor, My Wife, Is Valiant Novel - Chapter 489
Chapter 489: 489: Standing up for the Beauty
After an entire day at the set, Jing Qian felt uncomfortable about her hair and makeup. She informed Zhan Lichuan that she would return to the Zhan mansion to take a shower.
When Zhan Yuheng was informed that Jing Qian was home, he immediately rushed back to the mansion.
Jing Qian was annoyed as there wasn’t a single bottle of beverages that she could find inside her bedroom because both she and Zhan Lichuan hadn’t been home for a long time.
For a mansion that stretched across 150 acres with hundreds of guards and servants, it was definitely a blunder to not have at least ten or more different beverages inside the Young Mistress’s room.
Therefore, when Zhan Yuheng reached home, he saw Jing Qian, who had just come out of the shower, looking for a cup of water in the pantry.
With her wet hair placed behind her, she no longer had the sharp, feisty appearance that she would usually have. She looked much more gentle compared to her usual self.
While admiring the change in Jing Qian, Zhan Yuheng turned soft as well.
“Sister-in-law, why are you looking for a drink here? Don’t you have servants responsible for it upstairs?”
Upon mentioning the maids, Jing Qian sneered. Initially, she planned on reporting this to Zhan Lichuan as soon as he returned home. She wanted to fire the one who was rude to her previously, but ever since Zhan Lichuan had a heart attack before this, he never returned to this mansion, so the maid wasn’t fired until today.
“Perhaps she doesn’t like me. Not only is there’s water missing from my room but there is also dust covering the entire room.”
Zhan Yuheng frowned and told his assistant, “Quick, get the maid who’s in charge of cleaning Young Mistress’s room.”
Soon, the maid who was rude towards Jing Qian earlier was called to meet Zhan Yuheng. She was nervous and looked anxious, no longer resembling the arrogant woman who had been mean toward Jing Qian.
“Do you know what the Zhan family’s requirements are toward their maids?”
Upon hearing the question, the maid instantly knew that Zhan Yuheng was standing up for Jing Qian.
“Young Master, I’m so sorry. The Third Young Master and the Young Mistress have been in the hospital recently, and they are rarely home. So, I thought…”
Zhan Yuheng didn’t even give her the chance to explain before retorting, “You work for the Zhan family, and you should work the amount that you are being paid for. There is no excuse for your laziness. Since you are such a lazy person, you can just return home and retire now.”
The maid widened her eyes in shock.
She was getting paid an amount of 8000 every month, and there would also be bonuses every year. Other than that, the Zhan family also took care of her insurance.
In sum, she would get a total of 15,000 from the Zhan family each month.
This was a huge amount of money; even if she did double the amount that she had now, she wouldn’t be able to earn so much.
The maid already knew that Jing Qian didn’t like her.
But she didn’t think that the Young Master would protect a woman like her who was only here to bring luck to the family.
She has heard rumors that the Young Master will be replacing the Third Young Master as the leader of the Zhan family.
The maid totally let go of her ego and started begging Jing Qian.
“Young Mistress, please help me. Please give me another chance! I’ll promise to do my job as told, and I will definitely listen to you!”
Jing Qian smiled. Her eyes still looked gentle but the words out of her mouth were not so much.
“It’s true that I wouldn’t have to do much to let you stay.”
The maid’s eyes lit up but were immediately broken by Jing Qian, “But… Why should I help you?”
In the end, the maid was chased out of the house as she cried out loud. Then, Zhan Yuheng gathered the other servants in the house and told them to see for themselves what the consequences were for being lazy before dismissing them.
“Qianqian, there’s something that I would like to talk to you about.”
