It’s no wonder why Zhang Kai didn’t take Qin Yiheng into consideration. Qin Yiheng wore a suit and didn’t speak. He had a thick coat on his wrist and stood at the door very politely. Zhang Kai had his back towards the door and only quickly glanced at him, thinking he was Chu Yi’s client.
Chu Yi had already taken off Zhang Kai’s coat and quickly gave it back to him. Seeing that Zhang Kai wouldn’t take it, he could only put it on the chair beside him.
Zhang Kai was still thinking about Chu Yi’s marriage, but he’s a bit calmer now. Thinking that there was still someone standing at the door, he could only ask Chu Yi in a quiet voice, “Who is it? Who exactly is it?”
Chu Yi smiled at Zhang Kai. While walking over, he raised his hand in the direction of the door.
Zhang Kai followed the direction of his hand and also looked over there, only then did he get a clear look at Qin Yiheng’s face.
After a brief pause, he suddenly let out a “damn”.
Chu Yi, “…”
He had known Zhang Kai for so long, how could he not know what Zhang Kai’s “damn” meant.
It’s seeing a hot guy.
In order to prevent Zhang Kai from doing outrageous things, Chu Yi immediately stood beside Qin Yiheng.
“Let me introduce you guys.” Chu Yi said to Zhang Kai, “This is my husband, Qin Yiheng.”
Chu Yi then turned to look at Qin Yiheng, “My friend, Zhang Kai.”
Zhang Kai performed a stunned on the spot.
While Chu Yi was talking, Qin Yiheng very naturally picked up the jacket on his wrist and very naturally put it on Chu Yi.
At the same time, Chu Yi very naturally allowed Qin Yiheng to do so and also very naturally put his arms into the sleeves.
Then the two looked at each other and smiled.
However, when Qin Yiheng started to help Chu Yi button-up, Chu Yi seemed a little less natural, as if he was feeling overwhelmed.
Then they started the following conversation.
Chu Yi, “Why did you personally come to deliver it?”
Qin Yiheng, “Just happened to have time.”
Chu Yi, “Where did this jacket come from?”
Qin Yiheng, “From home.”
Chu Yi, “You went back home? So troublesome.”
Qin Yiheng took a glance at Chu Yi, “So you still dare to do this next time?”
Chu Yi said immediately, “No.”
Qin Yiheng, “What do you need to do before going out?”
Chu Yi, “Check the weather.”
Zhang Kai felt a little like an extra.
The scent of lemons in the air.
After Qin Yiheng fastened the button, he raised his hand and put his palm on Chu Yi’s head before turning to face Zhang Kai’s curious eyes.
Zhang Kai immediately became prim and proper.
Qin Yiheng, “Hello.”
Zhang Kai, “Hello.”
After this nonnutritive greeting, Qin Yiheng didn’t continue. He patted Chu Yi’s head twice and said, “I’ll be going first.”
Chu Yi looked up at Qin Yiheng, “Okay.”
Looking at it from the angle of Qin Yiheng’s point of view, Chu Yi’s upper eyelids were like a long tilde with the ends of his eyes raised, looking cute and charming.
Qin Yiheng slightly lowered his head, but after perceiving that right now was an inappropriate time to kiss, he raised his head back up.
Chu Yi sent Qin Yiheng to the door, waved to the driver, Xiao-Chen, and then watched them leave.
“Did you really get married?” Zhang Kai was truly curious. He also looked at the direction Qin Yiheng was leaving in, “Such a spicy man on top of that.”
Chu Yi smiled as he looked at Zhang Kai.
Zhang Kai, “What does this smug expression on your face mean?”
Chu Yi raised both hands, delighted, “My laogong’s jacket.”
Zhang Kai, “Shit! Stop flexing.”
The relationship between Chu Yi and Zhang Kai isn’t one to be called ordinary, Zhang Kai can be regarded as Chu Yi’s best friend.
Zhang Kai knew about the matters of Chu Yi’s family and Chu Yi’s school. Zhang Kai came to City A half a year ago because Chu Yi told Zhang Kai that Chen Jianshi was here.
That day, Zhang Kai even threatened over the phone that he would beat up Chen Jianshi.
However, when Zhang Kai came over, Chen Jianshi had already left. Chu Yi didn’t expect Zhang Kai to come all the way here. He felt very grateful and apologetic, so he secretly bought a pair of shoes for him that Zhang Kai himself was reluctant to buy.
Zhang Kai joked with him after receiving it, saying that he would go through fire and water for him in the future. After he said this, Chu Yi told him he wanted to eat egg-fried rice personally made by him. Zhang Kai, who said he would do everything for him the previous second, refused him.
You can never wake up someone who is pretending to be asleep.
You can never eat Zhang Kai’s rice.
Although there’s no relation between these two sentences.
But the result is the same, it will never happen.
People who pretend to be asleep will never wake up, and Zhang Kai will never enter the kitchen.
As for Chu Yi’s romantic matters, Zhang Kai also knew some details.
After returning to the office, Chu Yi told Zhang Kai a simple version of the story of himself and Qin Yiheng.
However, he and Qin Yiheng don’t really have a story. A big man like Chu Yi didn’t have the habit of sharing details, so he said two or three sentences and finished in less than half a minute.
After listening, Zhang Kai first let out a “wow”, then clicked his tongue, and finally said, “It sounds too fake, if it didn’t happen to you, I would’ve thought it was made up.”
Chu Yi shrugged.
Zhang Kai asked again, “What about you and Xu Zhiming?”
Chu Yi: ???
Ever since he met Xu Zhiming, Zhang Kai would tease about them nonstop.
Chu Yi, “Enough.”
Zhang Kai laughed, “Fine, your xuezhang also has a girlfriend, I won’t say this anymore.”
Chu Yi, “It has nothing to do with whether he has a girlfriend or not. I have nothing to do with him to begin with.”
Zhang Kai laughed harder, “Fine, fine.”
Chu Yi looked at Zhang Kai helplessly.
After Zhang Kai finished laughing, he still couldn’t help but ask, “How many people know about your marriage?”
Chu Yi lost his smile, “It can be counted with a hand.”
Zhang Kai, “Then count it.”
“You, Qin Yiheng’s mom, Qin Yiheng’s driver, Qin Yiheng’s assistant, Qin Yiheng’s cleaning auntie.” Chu Yi shrunk his five fingers into a fist and stopped talking.
Zhang Kai was surprised, “No more?”
Chu Yi suddenly opened the fist, “And the workers at the Civil Affairs Bureau that day. “
Zhang Kai, “…”
Zhang Kai, “It’s really only a handful, even your mom doesn’t know?”
Chu Yi, “I mentioned to her that I’m in a relationship, I wanted to wait until Qin Yiheng’s free to bring him home.”
Zhang Kai, “Ah.”
Zhang Kai asked again, “Not gonna tell your xuezhang, Xu Zhiming?”
Zhang Kai said it in a sarcastic tone, and Chu Yi’s mouth crooked.
Zhang Kai started laughing, “Hahaha, ok, I won’t say anymore.”
Probably because Chu Yi was born too well-behaved, never been in love, and the only scandal he ever had was Xu Zhiming, Zhang Kai couldn’t help but tease them.
Chu Yi, “It’s really not necessary. If Qin Yiheng wants to hold a wedding in the future, I might send him an invitation.”
Zhang Kai clicked his tongue twice, “This is too cruel, your xuezhang liked you so much.”
Chu Yi, “Don’t talk nonsense.”
“I’m not talking nonsense, at that time, he…” Zhang Kai paused for a bit, “Nevermind.”
There’s no need to talk about things that already happened. Furthermore, Chu Yi didn’t seem to care about this matter at all. Chu Yi casually let out an “mn, mn” and went back to work.
Therefore, Zhang Kai could only shut his mouth and continue to make the tea in his hands.
Even though Chu Yi seemed to be working seriously on the surface, in fact, he secretly picked up his phone under the desk.
Since Zhang Kai came here, he definitely wouldn’t let him stay at his house alone nor would he suddenly let the other stay at a hotel. It’s more reasonable to let Zhang Kai stay with him and Qin Yiheng.
He didn’t ask when Qin Yiheng was there just now because he was afraid that Qin Yiheng would refuse.
Zhang Kai was practically a stranger to Qin Yiheng.
Chu Yi typed: Can Zhang Kai stay at our place tonight?
He thought a bit then added: He usually stays at my place when he comes to City A.
After Chu Yi finished typing, he put the phone on his lap and continued to work on the draft on hand.
Soon, the sound of a new message came from his phone.
He didn’t turn off the display settings, so Qin Yiheng’s message popped up directly on the screen.
Qin Yiheng: Okay
Chu Yi pursed his lips and smiled, then continued to draw. Unexpectedly, the phone sounded again.
It was from Qin Yiheng again.
Qin Yiheng: How’s your relationship with this friend?
Chu Yi: Extremely good
Qin Yiheng: Do we need to have a meal with him?
Chu Yi: Do you have time?
Qin Yiheng: Yeah
Chu Yi thought for a bit, then continued to type: He said he wanted to eat hotpot tonight
Chu Yi: And he wanted to play my game console
Chu Yi: So can I bring my console over tonight? And set it up with the TV in the living room?
Qin Yiheng: Sure
Qin Yiheng: I’ll tell Xu Jing to book the restaurant
Qin Yiheng: I’m free at 7
Chu Yi: Okay
After this okay, Qin Yiheng didn’t send any more messages, it seemed that the conversation finally ended.
With the phone, Chu Yi scrolled up page by page, then back down page by page.
They obviously didn’t talk about anything at all and the messages sent by Qin Yiheng were all serious, but Chu Yi still read it over and over again.
“What are you laughing foolishly about?” Zhang Kai suddenly walked over.
Chu Yi raised his head and saw that Zhang Kai brought him a cookie.
Chu Yi flapped his hand, “Don’t want it.”
Zhang Kai put the cookie into his own mouth then sat on Chu Yi’s office desk. He looked at Chu Yi with a strange smile.
He raised his brow, pointed at Chu Yi’s phone with his chin, and said, “Chatting with your husband?”
The word husband made Chu Yi feel numb in his heart.
Chu Yi, “Mn.”
Zhang Kai, “Hey, it can’t be that you already fell in love with him, right?”
Chu Yi wasn’t sure himself, “I don’t know.”
Zhang Kai shook his head, “It’s alright. Your husband is so outstanding and he came from a distance to deliver you clothes, it’s okay to like him.”
Chu Yi suddenly felt helpless, as if he had found a sense of belonging, “Right? He’s so good at this.”
Zhang Kai put on a gossipy expression, “There are other things he did? Let me hear it.”
Chu Yi thought of a lot in an instant, so he picked the nearest one, “I dreamed about my dad in the middle of the night last night. After I woke up, he was also awakened by me. He probably knows a bit about my family. After I told him that I dreamed of my dad, he said, don’t be afraid, I will always be by your side.”
This is what Qin Yiheng said to Chu Yi after he turned off the lights.
At that moment, Chu Yi felt warmed to the extreme. Qin Yiheng’s words of concern seemed to seep into his bones, sweet and numbing at the same time.
What’s shameful is that, he wanted to have sex with Qin Yiheng right there and then.
But of course, he held back.
Zhang Kai was stunned, only after Chu Yi finished speaking, did he remember to swallow the cookie.
Zhang Kai, “You guys really only got married last week?”
Chu Yi, “Yeah.”
Chu Yi, “You guys really only started living together the day before yesterday?”
Chu Yi, “Yeah.”
Zhang Kai, “You guys really got married on the second meeting?”
Chu Yi, “Yeah.”
Zhang Kai, “Qin Yiheng’s too good at this.”
Not only delivering clothes, not only based on what Chu Yi said, but also based on the conversation Zhang Kai saw they had after Qin Yiheng gave him the jacket.
When Qin Yiheng and Chu Yi looked at each other during that time, one was a look full of pampering and the other was full of love.
This should be love, right?
“Chu Yi.” Zhang Kai said seriously, “I sincerely congratulate you.”
Chu Yi smiled joyfully, “Thanks.”
“So,” Zhang Kai switched the topic and suddenly asked, “How is he in that area?”
Chu Yi, “…”
Zhang Kai laughed, “Don’t be shy, although you were drunk that day, you should still remember a bit, right?”
Chu Yi paused for a bit.
Chu Yi, “These days, we also often… that.”
Zhang Kai is a sensible person, he immediately knew what Chu Yi was talking about and let out, “Wow~”
Zhang Kai, “So how is he?”
The translator has something to say:
yeah chu yi! dont be shy! tell us!
p.s. since this chapter has both xuezhang and laogong, i’ll say it here;
i will be switching between xuezhang=senior, laogong=husband, etc. depending on whichever sounds better in the context, ty!
