In the evening, Jiang Baimian—who was typing away on the keyboard—glanced at the door from the corner of her eye and realized that Shang Jianyao and the others had already left the office.
She let out a long sigh of relief and stopped what she was doing. Following that, she took out a piece of paper, picked up a pen, and wrote according to her memories. “Go out, turn right, walk to the end, and take the elevator…
“Press button 349…
“After getting off the elevator and entering the square, turn left after seeing the flowers. Zone C, Room 12…”
Jiang Baimian quickly drew the map needed for her ‘battle back home.’ After repeatedly confirming that there were no errors, she packed up, picked up the map, and walked to the office door.
Jiang Baimian turned left when she stepped out the door.
She had just taken a step when she stopped and looked down at the map in her hand and the notations on it. Her gaze froze as the corners of her mouth twitched slightly. She had turned in the wrong direction! She had done so without realizing it!
The price of being directionally challenged is still quite terrifying… As Jiang Baimian’s eyes darted around, she took out the fountain pen in her pocket and added a sentence to the map: “Every time I turn a corner, it’s better to be slow than to rush it. Stop and think more for confirmation.”

She suddenly realized that she had let her tongue slip. She quickly raised her hands and covered her mouth.
Long Yuehong was stunned. “What else?”
Long Aihong looked at her mother and then at her father. After that, she carefully said, “Some say that you are the source of bad luck.
