The one thing I like about the C-Novel is that most novel are pretty short read with an average of 75 to 80 chapters. Of course there are times where it will go above 150 chapters but the length of each chapter were pretty short.
I recently completed re-reading a funny translated C-Novel about boss-staff comedy love story that I wished to share today. Titled : Black Belly Boss, Don’t Run Away! (腹黑BOSS，你别逃!), this short novel with only 23 chapters + 1 Epilogue + Prologue is written by 睡懒觉的喵 (The Mew From A Cat After A Lazy Nap). A cute name for an author indeed!
Black Belly Boss, Don’t Run Away! (腹黑BOSS，你别逃!) talks about Nuo Nuo, a new employee in a RPG games company whom is smart and very capable but because of her love for RPG Games, gave up a good job in her previous company to work with her passion.
Nuo Nuo went for a matchmaking date that her mum has arranged where she met Xiao Yi whom she thought was a simple office worker only to discover that he is the CEO of the RPG Gaming company that she works at. What luck in her fate as in her job application, she actually state that she is married due to the advise from her dad about it making her look more serious about her career. She had to then admit to Xiao Yi that she is actually not married.
Fate as it is, Xiao Yi’s brother, Xiao Jun met Nuo Nuo at the bus stop and eventually starting liking her as well. It is really funny to read how Xiao Jun on several occasions tricked Nuo Nuo to spend time with him triggering a hint of jealousy from the protective Xiao Yi whom tried to keep them apart.
As it turns out to be, the black belly boss who appears to be like a BIG BAD WOLF, is tamed by Nuo Nuo whom turns out to be a tigress! The funny story on how Nuo Nuo bullies Xiao Yi when she uses his scheme against him making him very jealous in the progress when her “first love” came back!

Xiao Yi stood in the bright center stage, looking around at the circle of twelve blind date candidates feeling slightly hypocritical.
This is C City local TV station’s recently upgraded version of a foreign hit show, it is superficially modified to avoid speculation and fraud, to attract viewers and render a pleasant atmosphere that attracts attention. Producers are hesitant to borrow vulgar language, and such elements to boost ratings.
And in Xiao Yi’s eyes, it’s still a garbage-like program and he actually came to participate. Standing on the central stage with lights flashing, in a suit and leather shoes, Xiao Big Boss shows he has taste. This program is really boring, Xiao Yi thought he will encounter some fun things, but the result is still the same: intimate links, self introduction, appearance, Q & A, and after a series of steps later will be asked which from the twelve girls will he choose to ask to go out with in front of the red light.
In order to stimulate the fun side of the production, and even break new grounds in grandstanding created a “Mother’s Group”, the Mother Group’s mamas have the opportunity to observe every male candidate. After the male guests get on the stage, the host will arrange them to go center stage from a small lift, and starts throwing difficult questions. If the answer does not satisfy the group of tiger aunts, they will press the “down” word button, the male guests will then disappear from the stage and miss the opportunity to have a dialogue with female contestants standing mercilessly in the background.
Xiao Yi after several major hurdles, finally stood in front of the mother group. Sure enough, one of the tiger aunts began to create difficulties for the audience’s viewing pleasure.
“You young man claiming to be a group of big boss, I think you’re very charming, talented (property) and polite, and how come have no girlfriend? You don’t have any unmentionable disease, right?”
