Since he talked with Zhang Kai about Xu Zhiming for a while yesterday, Chu Yi felt really awkward standing beside Xu Zhiming right now.
In fact, they don’t actually have any conflicts. If there were any conflicts, they were Xu Zhiming’s one-sided conflicts which Chu Yi didn’t care about at all.
So if Xu Zhiming starts talking about this conflict later, Chu Yi may not know how to deal with it.
He really doesn’t know anything. Like Zhang Kai said, this whole thing was Xu Zhiming doing this and that by himself.
And he didn’t believe what Zhang Kai said about Xu Zhiming liking him yesterday.
Even if he recalled their friendship from beginning to end, there were no signs of Xu Zhiming liking him at all.
“Just a drink? Would you like a snack?” Xu Zhiming looked at the menu and asked Chu Yi.
Chu Yi shook his head, “No need.” He said, hinting once again, “I still have a lot of work left to do.”
Xu Zhiming nodded and handed the menu back to the waiter.
After the waiter left, Xu Zhiming asked, “It’s been a long time. How have you been recently?”
“Still the same as usual.” Chu Yi said politely, and didn’t want to waste his breath with him, “Is something the matter? You came to find me so suddenly today.”
Xu Zhiming smiled, “Can’t I come to find you even if I have nothing?”
Chu Yi suddenly didn’t know what to answer, so he could only laugh awkwardly, “Hahaha.”
Xu Zhiming asked, “Did you try the shoes on? Do they fit?”
Chu Yi made an “ah” sound.
Oh right, shoes.
“I didn’t, Zhang Kai wanted it a lot, so I sold it to him.”
After Chu Yi said this, the waiter brought over his drink and Xu Zhiming’s coffee. Chu Yi looked up, smiled at the waiter, and said thank you.
Xu Zhiming seemed to be stunned for several seconds. After the waiter left, he slowly said, “How can you give what I gave you to other people?”
Chu Yi took a sip of his drink and looked at Xu Zhiming puzzled, “I gave you the money, which means I bought it. Zhang Kai wanted it, so I sold it to him. Where’s the problem?”
Xu Zhiming choked and could only say, “There’s no problem.”
Chu Yi nodded.
Xu Zhiming still wanted to say something, but Chu Yi’s phone suddenly rang.
Xu Zhiming could see clearly that Chu Yi, who had a plain expression the entire time, suddenly smiled gently, picked up the call, and whispered hello to the phone.
Xu Zhiming lowered his head and stirred his coffee.
Chu Yi didn’t remain on the call for too long, the call only lasted a bit over a minute, but Xu Zhiming had never heard of Chu Yi talking with this kind of tone.
It was very quiet and soft, sounding very obedient.
The other side seemed to be giving some kind of order, Chu Yi answered and responded seriously.
After Chu Yi hung up, his expression didn’t seem like what he looked like when he answered the phone. He looked a little confused, also a little nervous.
Xu Zhiming put down the spoon and asked, “Was it a client?”
Chu Yi was a little absent-minded and shook his head, “No, it’s my husband.”
Xu Zhiming was surprised and his voice lifted, “Your what?”
Chu Yi said, “My husband.”
After Chu Yi said this, he took a sip of his drink with a heavy heart.
What’s the meaning of this? What does Qin Yiheng want to talk to him about?
Opposite him, Xu Zhiming asked him again, “When did you get a husband? Is it a boyfriend? When did you get a boyfriend?”
Chu Yi’s mind was full of Qin Yiheng’s serious tone from how he talked just now. Hearing Xu Zhiming’s questions, he was a little impatient, “It’s my husband. I’m married.”
After Chu Yi said this, he tapped on his phone. Only a few minutes had passed since 2. It’s still a while until 3:30.
“Xuezhang,” Chu Yi was a little anxious in his heart, “Why exactly are you looking for me?”
Xu Zhiming was stunned for a moment. After pausing for half a second, he said, “Nothing.”
Chu Yi nodded, put his phone in his pocket, and picked up the drink on the table, “If there’s nothing, I’ll go first. I have something urgent later, excuse me.”
Chu Yi has a lot of orders today. Several drafts needed to be finalized this evening. If he wants to find Qin Yiheng later, he has to hurry up and finish some work first.
So regardless of whether Xu Zhiming actually had no business or faking that he had no business, Chu Yi smiled politely at him and left the coffee shop first.
Coincidentally, as soon as Qin Yiheng’s car drove away, Chu Yi came out of the coffee shop.
Qin Yiheng’s visit was because he and Xu Jing had to go talk about business with a company they were cooperating with.
Since he was going to pass by Chu Yi’s studio, he actually wanted to give him the small gift in his hands.
What Xu Jing gave him yesterday wasn’t just shoes.
Xu Jing found someone to watch the game and bought signed photos, signed jerseys, and other complete merchandise sets.
When Qin Yiheng received these yesterday, when he saw the pile of things on the table, he decided to give them to Chu Yi one by one.
This way, Chu Yi will be surprised and happy every day for several days.
Although there was an accident with the shoes, Qin Yiheng didn’t care that much after a while. After all, he still has a lot in his hands.
Today, he wanted to give him a signed jersey.
Qin Yiheng turned to look at the white paper bag next to him and started being silent again.
His mind was full of the scene of Xu Zhiming opening the door for Chu Yi.
Xu Jing, who sat in the passenger seat, didn’t dare to say a word. He had seen Xu Zhiming’s information file before, so he knew that the person who went to the cafe with Mr. Chu was Xu Zhiming.
He doesn’t know the specific situation but knows that President Qin must be unhappy again.
However, Qin Yiheng’s mood never affects his work. Even though he looked unhappy, he still handled the matters on hand smoothly.
What should be done was done, what should be signed was signed and what should be arranged was arranged.
On the other hand, Chu Yi’s pressure resistance wasn’t as good.
He went back to the office and sat in front of his computer. In merely ten minutes, he lost his focus countless times and wasn’t even satisfied with the design he made.
After the final stroke, Chu Yi sighed, put down the mouse, and rubbed the center of his eyebrows.
After zoning out for a few seconds, he opened a search software and entered “marital loyalty”.
After clicking search, a lot of content jumped out of the web page. He scanned through them roughly and realized that the keyword “cheating” appeared in every link.
Cheating can be divided into psychological cheating and physical cheating.
Chu Yi tilted his head.
What does this, have to do with them?
There must be a reason why Qin Yiheng asked to talk about this so suddenly and urgently during this time.
Qin Yiheng cheated?
Chu Yi immediately shook his head. He felt that it was impossible.
Could it be…
He’s the one that cheated?
Chu Yi raised his head and something suddenly flashed into his mind.
Chu Yi turned off the web page and spent a few minutes modifying the design he just made and then sent it to the client.
When he thought the client would be dissatisfied with it everywhere, the client actually replied with the word “Okay”.
Chu Yi took a breath of relief, looked at the time, and then picked up his coat and scarf.
“I’m going out for a while, call me if something happens.” Chu Yi thought for a bit, then changed his words, “Send me a WeChat if something happens.”
Rongrong nodded, “Got it, boss.”
As soon as her voice fell, Chu Yi had already closed the door and disappeared.
Since Chu Yi felt extremely uneasy, he arrived at Feiyun 20 minutes in advance. He followed the route that Qin Yiheng used last time, going up from the special entrance.
As soon as he got off the elevator, he saw Zhou Xiao welcoming him.
Zhou Xiao was obviously surprised that Chu Yi was here so early. He quickly put down his things and trotted over, “Mr. Chu, you’re here.”
Chu Yi nodded and asked, “Is Qin Yiheng back?”
Zhou Xiao shook his head, “Not yet, but President Qin already explained that when you’re here, you may go wait in his office.”
Chu Yi nodded, “Okay.”
Zhou Xiao took him into the office and led him to sit down on the sofa, “President Qin will be back soon. What would you like to drink, Mr. Chu?”
Chu Yi thought, “Water, thank you.”
Zhou Xiao responded yes, then withdrew from the office. He sent a message to Xu Jing saying that Mr. Chu had already arrived at the office.
Before long, Zhou Xiao brought in a glass of water, smiled at Chu Yi, and left.
Chu Yi picked up the cup of water and drank more than half of it before putting it back down.
He was sitting uprightly, his fingers tapped his knees uncontrollably, keeping a low heart rate and breathing as gently as possible.
When he answered Qin Yiheng’s call, he hadn’t felt so intense about this yet.
For some reason, the more he thought of it, the more flustered he got and the more he felt that things weren’t so simple.
The clock on the wall was ticking. Chu Yi didn’t know what to do, he could only let his thoughts fly uselessly all over the place.
At 3:18, the door of the office was suddenly pushed open. Chu Yi immediately snapped out of it and stood up.
Xu Jing came in behind Qin Yiheng. He was still talking about the process of the project with Qin Yiheng, but he immediately shut his mouth when he saw Chu Yi.
Xu Jing, “President Qin, I’ll go out first.”
Qin Yiheng did not object, “Mn.”
The door of the office was closed again. Only the two of them were left in such a large space.
Qin Yiheng looked at Chu Yi from several meters away.
Chu Yi stood there all straightened up, frowning slightly, with a worried expression. He had one hand in his pocket and the other holding the string from the hoodie of his sweater, looking a little overwhelmed.
Qin Yiheng immediately became a lot more soft-hearted.
Qin Yiheng, “You came so early.”
Chu Yi softly made an “mn” sound. It was a rare moment in which he didn’t know how to reply to Qin Yiheng’s words.
Qin Yiheng spoke again, “Sit.”
Chu Yi made another “mn” and sat down.
Qin Yiheng also walked over. After he took a few steps. Chu Yi noticed that Qin Yiheng was holding a white paper bag in his hand.
Chu Yi’s eyes followed Qin Yiheng. Very soon, Qin Yiheng sat down opposite him, and the white bag was also put on the table.
It was placed in a very peculiar position. It wasn’t thrown casually, but placed in front of Chu Yi, which looked like it was for Chu Yi.
Chu Yi naturally asked, “What is it?”
Qin Yiheng said, “A gift.”
Chu Yi was surprised, “For me?”
Qin Yiheng, “Mn.”
Chu Yi reached out and wanted to take it, but Qin Yiheng stopped him.
Qin Yiheng, “Don’t move yet.”
Chu Yi took his hand back.
Qin Yiheng asked, “Do you remember what I want to talk to you about?”
Chu Yi nodded, “Martial loyalty.”
Qin Yiheng, “Mn.”
Straight to the point.
Chu Yi licked his lips and spoke first, he asked in a low voice, “Did you fall in love with someone else?”
Qin Yiheng instantly showed a confused expression, “What?”
Chu Yi immediately waved his hand, “No, no, sorry, it’s me, it’s me.”
Qin Yiheng was even more confused, “What?”
“Ah, no, that’s not what I meant.” Chu Yi moved forward a little, “Is it about me and Xu Zhiming?”
Qin Yiheng paused for half a second and said with a deeper tone, “Mn.”
He knew it!
He thought for a long time. If there was nothing wrong on Qin Yiheng’s side, then the problem must be from him.
What problem does he even have? Qin Yiheng had been mentioning Xu Zhiming the most.
Chu Yi immediately explained, “I have nothing to do with Xu Zhiming. Me and him, me, him.”
Chu Yi thought for a long time. He really didn’t know what to even say about him and Xu Zhiming. He could only throw it to Qin Yiheng, “What’s the problem?”
In fact, seeing Chu Yi like this, Qin Yiheng had already become overly soft-hearted.
When has he ever seen Chu Yi so flustered?
Soft-hearted aside, the problem still had to be solved.
“I don’t care about the past.” Qin Yiheng asked, “Do you like him?”
Chu Yi was surprised, “How could I like him? I haven’t liked him before either.”
Qin Yiheng slightly tilted his head.
Okay, he finally felt comfortable again.
Qin Yiheng, “Around two o’clock, I went to your studio to find you.”
Chu Yi opened his mouth for a long time only to let out an “ah”. He raised his eyebrows, “You saw me and Xu Zhiming?”
Qin Yiheng said, “I saw you go to the cafe opposite your studio.”
Chu Yi made another “ah”.
Qin Yiheng continued, “I asked you what you were doing, but you didn’t tell the truth.”
Chu Yi remembered this.
“No.” Chu Yi said, “I thought it wasn’t a big deal, so I wanted to ask you why you were looking for me first.”
After saying this, he was afraid that Qin Yiheng wouldn’t believe him, so he emphasized, “It’s true.”
Qin Yiheng believed him. He then asked, “Why did he look for you?”
Chu Yi looked up and thought for a bit, “He didn’t say, maybe he just wanted to talk to me.”
Qin Yiheng said, “He likes you.”
Chu Yi shook his head, “No way.”
Qin Yiheng said again, “He likes you.”
Chu Yi chickened out.
Chu Yi, “I don’t know.”
Qin Yiheng asked, “How are you going to deal with it?”
Okay, here comes the martial loyalty.
Since it was Chu Yi’s problem and Chu Yi had promised Qin Yiheng before that he would not have too much physical contact with others.
So Chu Yi thought that this was a similar problem.
With a sincere attitude, Chu Yi said, “I will keep a distance from him and won’t contact him if it’s not necessary.”
Chu Yi thought for a moment and added, “Not only him, I will try my best to eliminate all emotional problems outside our marriage.”
Chu Yi thought again and added, “I told Xu Zhiming I was married this afternoon.”
Chu Yi thought again once more and then looked up at Qin Yiheng, “Is there anything else?”
Qin Yiheng finally smiled, “No more.”
Chu Yi breathed a sigh of relief.
Qin Yiheng said, “I will do the same.”
Chu Yi smiled, “Okay.”
The atmosphere suddenly eased down. Chu Yi picked up the cup and drank all the remaining water.
After putting down the cup, Chu Yi suddenly thought of something. He asked, “You came to my studio at 2?”
Qin Yiheng nodded, raised his chin, and pointed at the bag on the table, “To give you this.”
Chu Yi’s depressed mood instantly lifted. He took the bag with a smile. He first opened it to take a look, and then took out the jersey.
“Wow!” Chu Yi stood up, looked at Qin Yiheng in surprise, and then looked at the jersey in his hand, “Are these the signatures of the whole team?”
He spread the jersey in his hand and counted the signatures one by one.
“It’s really the whole team!” Chu Yi put down the jersey and looked at Qin Yiheng, “How did you get this? Did you go to the game that day? You were at the scene?”
Seeing Chu Yi so happy, Qin Yiheng was also in a good mood.
He shook his head, “I didn’t go, I bought it.”
Chu Yi looked at the signature carefully, “How did you buy this?”
“I spent some money.” Qin Yiheng said.
Chu Yi has never bought such a thing before, so he naturally doesn’t know how much Qin Yiheng spent. He thought that Qin Yiheng probably asked Xu Jing to get it.
Chu Yi’s mood was no longer an emotion that can be described. He even wanted to run around in circles with this jersey in his arms.
This jersey made him happy, but also because it was given by Qin Yiheng, so the happiness was doubled.
Chu Yi lifted the jersey, where Qin Yiheng couldn’t see, he closed his eyes.
Then he kissed it.
He kissed it again, heavily.
The translator has something to say:
cy: who cheated? huh? who?
cy: oh. i cheated.
