Chu Yi’s DMs exploded.
He suddenly felt that posting this to his Moments at this time was a very wrong decision.
He hadn’t finished Mr. Zhao’s order yet but was distracted from time to time by the messages his friends sent him.
After Chu Yi replied to three or four people, he simply turned off the sound and started to work on the design seriously.
Mr. Zhao sent over many requests, but most of them were about details. Chu Yi spent more than 20 minutes modifying it on the computer.
After sending the design to Mr. Zhao, he clicked into his Moments and located the post Qin Yiheng posted.
Logically speaking, he and Qin Yiheng shouldn’t have any common friends, yet he still saw comments belowyou can only see comments from mutual friends on wechat.
Chu Yi’s hands, who wanted to take a screenshot, paused.
The commentator was Mr. Zhao.
Mr. Zhao: Congratulations, gege
Chu Yi suddenly felt sour. Even he hadn’t called Qin Yiheng gege yet.
But a few seconds later, he told himself to calm down. Didn’t Mr. Zhao call him xiao gege as well?
This was probably Mr. Zhao’s personal habit.
Gege, and xiao-gege.
Aren’t they pretty much the same thing?
Chu Yi screenshotted this post and saved it in his album.
Pretty much the same my ass.
He felt so sour.
Chu Yi cut Mr. Zhao’s comments from the picture.
Because of this, Chu Yi, who has always had no complaints nor regrets towards Mr. Zhao, suddenly became impatient.
Even after he replied to all his friends’ messages, Mr. Zhao hadn’t sent his feedback yet.
Why is he so slow?
Feeling extreme boredom, Chu Yi scrolled up and looked at the messages Mr. Zhao had sent him before.
As he scrolled, he found a voice message.
Chu Yi clicked on the voice message and heard Mr. Zhao say, “Xiao-gege, change the part in the lower right corner again. I want a cooler effect, okay?”
Chu Yi frowned. Was Mr. Zhao also talking to Qin Yiheng with this kind of tone?
Chu Yi can imagine his voice.
While waiting for Mr. Zhao’s reply, Chu Yi’s fingers tapped the keyboard impatiently.
In the past, when Mr. Zhao received his designs, he would reply within a short time. Now, nearly half an hour has passed.
Chu Yi asked first: Are you busy?
Unexpectedly, Mr. Zhao replied quickly: Please wait a minute
So Chu Yi could only wait.
Since he only had this one order left, Chu Yi felt too bored. He simply put the picture he just screenshotted into PS and made another background about Qin Yiheng.
After ten minutes, Chu Yi saved the picture, and Mr. Zhao finally replied.
Mr. Zhao: Thank you, xiao-gege
Mr. Zhao: You can finalize the draft
Chu Yi was a little surprised.
Mr. Zhao: You’ve worked hard, xiao-gege
Mr. Zhao: Xiao-gege, good job
After these messages from Mr. Zhao, the final payment came over. Chu Yi looked at the numbers above and was a little surprised.
It was even more than before.
This order finished several hours earlier than expected. Chu Yi looked at the time and thought there wasn’t anything to do at home anyways, so he simply took out the orders for tomorrow.
After Chu Yi chose several simple ones and did them, he finally wasted some time. Only then did Chu Yi go home feeling satisfied.
Rongrong once said that when boss is lazy, he is lazy to the point of no hope, but once he starts working, he becomes a workaholic.
Chu Yi is indeed such a person. He did things based on inspiration.
However, because his meals come from designing, he will force himself to do it even if he has no inspiration.
But when he’s inspired, he will definitely be stationed at his post the entire time.
Tonight, he had a lot of inspiration. This inspiration was originally left for Mr. Zhao. But since Mr. Zhao let him go, he gave this inspiration to other clients.
On the way back, Chu Yi found that he suddenly received a message from the WeChat group that hadn’t had any new messages for a long time.
This group chat is his group of high school classmates. The first message was from his high school deskmate.
Deskmate: You’re suddenly married?
Chu Yi started the car and replied: Yeah
Chu Yi: I accidentally got married
Classmate 1: Have you held a wedding?
Chu Yi: Not yet
Chu Yi: Got the certificate first
Chu Yi: Holding it next year
Deskmate: Then let’s hold a get-together first. I just happened to be coming back this weekend. Who’s free?
Deskmate: City A
Classmate 1: Me
Classmate 2: Me
Classmate 3: Me
Classmate 4: Me
Deskmate: What’s with you guys?
Deskmate: How come whenever I asked, you guys never budge
Deskmate: Now that baobei appears, you guys budge
Classmate 2: Isn’t it because we were waiting for you to organize it
Classmate 3: Of course, baobei is the main reason
Deskmate: OK, I’ll book a room
Deskmate: Baobei, you’re coming too
Chu Yi: Coming
Deskmate: Bring that one from your family. Let’s see who married our baobei
Classmate 1: Hahaha, that’s right, show us
Classmate 2: Bring him, bring him
Classmate 3: How did baobei just suddenly get married
Classmate 7: Since baobei’s husband is coming, then I’m going too
Chu Yi: I’ll ask him
Chu Yi: If he has time, I’ll bring him
If we’re talking about this baobei nickname, Chu Yi actually rejects it.
This nickname came from his senior year one. At that time, they hadn’t been divided into classes yet and everyone had just enjoyed the two-month holiday without homework. As a result, they were very lazy when they first arrived at school.
The phenomenon of not wanting to do homework was like an infectious disease, which spread from one to ten, then ten to a hundred, especially this group of boys.
Chu Yi was the only different one.
Although he still played with everyone, he did all his homework properly and had attended class properly.
So at that time, Chu Yi’s exercise book became a treasurehence the nickname in the pile of boys. It was well protected and carefully copied.
When Chu Yi recalled this matter seriously later, he was actually quite thankful for these friends.
If it weren’t for them, he wouldn’t be doing his homework under great pressure and told himself that he must not make mistakes. If he made a mistake, this group of people would all be wrong.
At first, the baobei everyone referred to was merely Chu Yi’s homework, but as time went on, Chu Yi somehow became the baobei.
Of course, Chu Yi rejected it. As a big man, it’s too cringey to be called baobei.
After he mentioned this, people did stop for a while, but it didn’t last long. As the homework and exam papers increased, the more they copied. Thus, baobei was called again.
They even made a protection policy for Chu Yi. They will only call him baobei only in private when they’re with their own people.
Chu Yi truly thanked these guys for their kindness.
The good times didn’t last long. In the whole struggle of senior year one, Chu Yi was the only one who studied seriously. Therefore, in senior year two, Chu Yi was the only one who got into the gifted class.
Chu Yi once advised them, it’s also okay to study a bit on top of playing around, it won’t delay anything.
Unfortunately, no one listened.
Chu Yi entered the gifted class ranking third of his grade. When the results came out, these boys were happier than anyone. It was as if they were the ones who entered the gifted class. They also said they would give him a celebration and hang a banner, “Congrats baobei for entering the gifted class”.
Chu Yi rejected it very much.
As a result, the nickname baobei has been spread down until now.
But they did well with their protection policy. It’s true that except for this group of people, nobody else called him baobei, and nobody else knew that he had this baobei nickname.
After the group arranged for the get-together, no one else chatted anymore. Chu Yi put away his phone and drove home.
Today’s Qin Yiheng was also a little later than Chu Yi. He only entered the room after Chu Yi finished showering and was lying in bed watching TV.
Chu Yi looked up slightly, “You’re back.”
Qin Yiheng made an “mn” sound.
Then they didn’t talk after that.
Qin Yiheng grabbed some clothes and took a shower, Chu Yi watched TV.
Qin Yiheng finished his shower, Chu Yi watched TV.
Qin Yiheng blow-dried his hair, Chu Yi watched TV.
It wasn’t until Qin Yiheng got into bed that Chu Yi took a look at the time, then finally turned off the tablet.
Their daily life has always been like this. They only meet at night, sleep together, occasionally make love, and that’s it.
Chu Yi never experienced the feeling of warmth from a complete family because of his father.
However, Chu Yi still knows that their current living conditions are similar to that of an old couple.
Chu Yi sometimes thinks that being like this with Qin Yiheng was already quite good.
But sometimes he feels that something’s missing.
Other old couples have all been through burning love and all kinds of life experiences before they finally enjoyed years of quietness.
And what’s with them? They’ve been enjoying years of quietness since the beginning.
He doesn’t know if Qin Yiheng’s parents are like this at home, leading Qin Yiheng to think that this is the state that married couples should be in.
There is still a big difference between old couples and newlyweds.
So Chu Yi, before Qin Yiheng turned off the light, leaned over a little and whispered to him, “Qin Yiheng.”
Qin Yiheng put down the magazine in his hand, “What’s wrong?”
He took a detour strategy, “Do your parents not talk at home?”
Qin Yiheng thought for a bit, “What are you referring to?”
Chu Yi, “Like chatting, normal chatting.”
Qin Yiheng put on a what are you thinking expression, “They chat.”
Chu Yi laughed dryly.
He felt that he didn’t express it correctly.
He thought for a moment and then asked, “Have you ever seen people date?”
Qin Yiheng shook his head, “No.”
Remove the problem from the root.
Chu Yi patted the quilt and thought seriously.
He hadn’t figured it out yet when Qin Yiheng spoke.
Qin Yiheng, “What’s wrong? What do you want to say?”
Chu Yi thought for a bit, “We-, right now, we-.”
Chu Yi didn’t know how to express it. The answers he found online when he searched up how to pursue your husband flashed in his mind.
Cook for him.
Go on dates.
Chu Yi frowned. In fact, he and Qin Yiheng had already done more than half of it.
Why was he not satisfied?
What else did he want?
“We what?” Seeing that he had not answered for a long time, Qin Yiheng asked, “Are you dissatisfied with our current life?”
Chu Yi shook his head, “No, no, I’m very satisfied.”
Qin Yiheng, “Then?”
Chu Yi gulped and couldn’t say the words ‘Qin Yiheng, should we date?’ that remained in his mouth.
“Um, we-,” Chu Yi thought of what to say, “What you posted on your Moments today, I noticed there was a Mr. Zhao that we both know. Who is he?”
Qin Yiheng looked at Chu Yi confused, only after several seconds, he asked “Which Mr. Zhao?”
Chu Yi lowered his head to take his phone, and at the same time, breathed a sigh of relief.
Fortunately, he didn’t act impulsively and said those words.
First of all, they are already married. Yet he still wants Qin Yiheng to rewind back? What’s he doing? So childish.
Secondly, it’s not like he didn’t know that Qin Yiheng was very busy. Yet he still wanted Qin Yiheng to cooperate with him to do things like long-lasting affection, he’s literally looking for trouble.
Moreover, if this was rejected by Qin Yiheng.
Then it would be way too embarrassing.
Qin Yiheng was kind enough to him, and their daily lives have been very comfortable.
Isn’t it fine already?
Chu Yi was not a person who would trouble others, so as a result, Chu Yi already persuaded himself before he brought up any questions.
He also thought that he was probably living too comfortably, since he was actually asking for trouble.
“This Mr. Zhao.” Chu Yi opened Mr. Zhao’s chat on his phone, tapped into Mr. Zhao’s profile, and handed it over, “He commented on your Moments. Who is this?”
Qin Yiheng said, “My cousin, Zhao Xin.”
Chu Yi was stunned, it actually turned out to be his real brother.
He laughed and was immediately ashamed of the vinegar he had eaten at the studio.
Chu Yi, “Haha, what a coincidence. He’s my client.”
Qin Yiheng nodded, “I know, he asked me this evening, he said he saw an identical picture of the marriage certificate.”
Chu Yi made an “ah” sound, then asked Qin Yiheng, “Did you talk to him about me?”
Qin Yiheng shook his head, “Didn’t really say anything, only wished you guys a happy cooperation.”
Chu Yi made another “ah” sound, he asked while smiling, “Is he very scared of you at home?”
“Can’t call it scared. We don’t often meet.” Qin Yiheng thought for a bit and added, “But he listens to me.”
Chu Yi laughed.
I wish you happy cooperation. For Qin Yiheng, this was just an ordinary blessing. However, in Mr. Zhao’s view, it might’ve been a threat.
No wonder the order was finalized so easily tonight.
Chu Yi laughed for a bit and then exited his profile. He was about to exit the chat and turn off his phone, but his wrist was grabbed by Qin Yiheng.
Qin Yiheng looked at the screen and asked Chu Yi, “He calls you xiao-gege?”
Chu Yi nodded, “Mn.”
Qin Yiheng frowned, “He always calls you that?”
Chu Yi nodded, thought for a moment, handed over his phone, and scrolled through the chat history.
Xiao-geges almost covered the screen above.
Qin Yiheng loosened Chu Yi’s hand and said with an unpleasant tone, “He deserves to be put in place.”
The translator has something to say:
hahahah what does ‘xiao-gege’ count for? there’s a big group of ‘baobei’s waiting for u 😀
