Taking in the youth’s expression, Shen Yijin did not say yes or no, but asked him: “Did something happen?”
“No, no,” Jing Xun said hurriedly.
Nothing special, just received a box of chestnut osmanthus cake.
Shen Yijin: “You have to tell me everything, you know?”
The deep voice suddenly spread over, and Shen Yijin was looking at him with his profound eyes. Jing Xun felt that he had been seen through with just a glance. He had to dodge his gaze a little, and whispered softly: “…It’s really nothing.”
Shen Yijin didn’t ask any more.
The fingers on his knee tapped gently, and he simply said: “I will make arrangements as soon as possible.”
Seeing that the other party was not suspicious, Jing Xun couldn’t help showing a bright smile. Ignoring the uncle driver in the front, He reached out and hugged Shen Yijin’s arm, saying sincerely, “Sir, it’s good to have you here.”
What he said was the truth.
If the scum gong really hadn’t given up, and he hadn’t met Shen Yijin, he really didn’t know what would happen.
Jing Xun felt that he might not be as relaxed and composed as he was now.
Fortunately, Mr. was here.
If there weren’t someone else in the car, he wanted to lean over and rub his head against the other party.
After all, he couldn’t say thank you.
Jing Xun didn’t know how to express his happiness and gratitude.
Shen Yijin, whose arm was held, sat properly in place.
He had always been sitting upright, with long legs placed in a regular manner, and both hands resting on his knees.
But this time, Shen Yijin naturally raised his hand, gently covering the back of the youth’s delicate and white hand.
He whispered: “Mm.”
There was silent warmth in the back, but the reaction of the uncle driver at the front…It could be said that he almost stared out of the window.
If it were not for his professionalism as a driver, so that he must be highly focused on driving, he really wanted to look back at the young man, or take a look at his boss’s expression.
God knew that when the young man took the initiative to mention going back to the Shen’s house, he was almost scared into a heart attack!
The uncle driver had picked up Jing Xun a few times before, and had a good impression of this good-looking, polite and warm-hearted young man.
Frankly speaking, he hoped that this joyous1开心果 [kāi xīn ɡuǒ]: English translation is pistachios nut. But the literal translation is 开心(happiness) and 果(nut). It is called Joyful nut in Chinese because of its heart shape and it became a symbol of happiness. It could also be used to describe a person who brings joy and happiness. Picture here. person could accompany the young master.
But he didn’t expect this young man to be so bold!
What kind of existence is the Shen family in the entire Dragon City? What kind of person is president Shen?
There were countless people who wanted to enter the door of Shen’s house and cling to president Shen!
All in all, he had been a driver in the Shen family for 20 years, and had been entrusted by the old master himself and personally assigned to the young master. This uncle had seen more of the world than ordinary people.
Just when Jing Xun proposed to return to Shen’s house, he was really frightened–he even thought of the scene where president Shen would be furiously looking at the youth with a pair of cold eyes, and ruthlessly driving him out of the car.
Even if president Shen had previously promised to take him back to Shen’s house…he was still too impatient.
The ambition was clear and not even concealed!
Normally, this youth looked sunny and optimistic, he didn’t look like that kind of person…..
However, he did not expect that the more shocking news was about to come.
President Shen unexpectedly…..agreed immediately?!
And it was the kind of consent that didn’t have an ounce of doubt in it!
President Shen had never followed anyone around. This period of frequent picking-up and dropping-off the young man was already extremely abnormal.
But the current behavior could be described as absurd!
Perhaps president Shen’s attitude was too natural, which made the young man become even more unrestrained…
Didn’t he even realize what kind of bold request he just made?
Was he not even worried that president Shen would feel disgust?
In this case, he still dared to hug president Shen’s arm…?
The uncle driver couldn’t imagine that young people nowadays were so bold.
Jing Xun, whose thinking was far less complicated than the uncle driver, and who had never coveted Shen Yijin’s property and status, only later realized that what he said just now seemed a bit wrong.
But unlike the uncle driver, he was worried that the remarks he had just said about returning to the Shen’s house would offend Shen Yijin.
——Although he and Shen Yijin didn’t know each other very well, Jing Xun knew that from the day when he proposed to marry, Shen Yijin had never worried about him clinging to the Shen family…
Mr’s one word is worth nine cauldrons2一言九鼎[yī yán jiǔ dǐng]: Is a chinese metaphor describes that the words spoken are heavy and decisive. , they both would soon be…..legal husbands, why would he not be allowed to mention the matter of returning to the Shen family.
What Jing Xun felt was wrong was that what he said just now sounded like…..
It was too much like a little daughter-in-law who couldn’t wait to enter Shen’s house!
However, it was too late to take back what he said.
When he realized all this, both hands had already embraced Shen Yijin’s arm…like a koala, the kind that was extremely close.
Suddenly realized what was wrong, Jing Xun’s whole body was stiff.
Because of the close proximity, this naturally drew the attention of those around him, and Shen Yijin spontaneously looked down at him, “What’s wrong?”
Jing Xun raised a hand to cover his mouth, and looked at Shen Yijin in horror.
When he just proposed to return to Shen’s house with sir earlier, he really didn’t take this into account. After all, he really just wanted the scum gong to see his boyfriend sooner.
The scum gong usually didn’t go to school very often. Showing off his affection at school might not be timely noticed by him, but back at Shen’s house, he would definitely notice.
… His idea was so crude and simple.
But looking back now, from the perspective of Mr….
Suddenly making such a request…he should not be misunderstood as a marriage maniac, right?
Jing Xun’s face turned red at a speed visible to the naked eye.
When proposed to go back to Shen’s house and announced their relationship, he already felt very embarrassed.
But now… Under Shen Yijin’s gaze, Jing Xun only wanted to drill under the wheel of the car!
Although it was a bit baffling, for Jing Xun, Mr. ‘s opinion of him was obviously more important than that of others. It was so important that as soon as the idea that Mr. villain believed he was too impatient to get married….
But he can’t explain it yet!
He couldn’t tell Shen Yijin, he merely wanted to show off his affection with Mr. in front of the scum gong! ?
……It was really hard to say.
Jing Xun simply could not bear the gaze that Shen Yijin was looking at him right now.
He couldn’t really drill under the car or under the seat… In the end, there was no way. Jing Xun could only bury his reddened face in his palm, not lifting it up.
He buried his face in the palms of both hands, and the hand that was originally holding Shen Yijin’s arm was naturally withdrawn.
Shen Yijin looked down at his empty arm, turned to Jing Xun again, and suddenly called him somewhat helplessly: “Xiao Xun.”
“Sit properly. It’s not safe for you to sit like this.”
“Wait a bir, sir.” Jing Xun said, “I’ll sit back in a while.”
Shen Yijin: “…”
The car was moving forward, and Jing Xun was now leaning forward with his head squeezed in his palms. Once there was a sudden brake, there would be a potential safety hazard.
Shen Yijin sighed almost inaudibly, and then covered Jing Xun’s entire upper body without a trace.
Afterward Jing Xun’s posture…. naturally changed to….. burying his head in Shen Yijin’s arms.
At first, he was only borrowing the strength of Shen Yijin’s arm, and burning his head on the other party’s chest.
Later, he discovered this position was uncomfortable, so Jing Xun simply went all the way down and changed to a posture of half lying on Mr.’s lap.
Now it felt almost like drilling under the car.
…If it weren’t for the restraint of the seat belt, he might be able to lie down more thoroughly.
Because he was almost lying down, the position was very low and the surroundings were dark, Jing Xun was not afraid that his reddened face would be seen by Shen Yijin.
Not only that, he also couldn’t see Shen Yijin’s face.
If you can’t see, you won’t feel embarrassed.
The car was still moving forward steadily, and Jing Xun finally relaxed.
He thought for a while, and still said, “Sir I want to go back to Shen’s house soon, but I don’t mean to get married right away…”
Jing Xun was accustomed to say what he had in mind, especially with Shen Yijin. He always felt that for two people to get along well in the future, they should be like this, try to express their thoughts and feelings, not hiding them.
Well, except for white lies.
But because of this little concealment that didn’t want to cause trouble to sir, Jing Xun found out that what he said now seemed a bit like there was no three hundred silver tael here3此地无银三百两[cǐ dì wú yín sān bǎi liǎng]: It’s an idiom stem from folk tale, meaning a very poor lie which reveals the truth. Legend has it that in ancient times someone buried silver in the ground; fearing that people would know it; he erected a wooden board on it; he wrote: “There is no three hundred silver tael in this place.” His neighbor Wang Er saw the sign; he stole the silver and also inserted a sign; it said: “The Wang Er next door never stole it.” …?
“Oh?” Sure enough, Shen Yijin made a sound.
At a place where the youth could not see, his long and straight eyelashes lowered, concealing the faint light under his eyes.
Shen Yijin said, “When does Xiao Xun plan to marry me?”
Jing Xun: “……”
This is just great.
He just lay flat4I’m not sure why the author used this term here so I’m just gonna explain the meaning behind it. 躺平 [tǎnɡ pínɡ]: Literally means lying flat. Another meaning is a Chinese internet slang refers to a recent passive movement in China where young people just give up on everything. When young people choose to lie flat, they choose to go to the edge, to go beyond the mainstream path of working overtime, getting a promotion, making money, and buying a house, and use their own way to eliminate the external environment’s disciplines on individuals. (It’s actually a very serious event that happened in China recently. You can search on Google if you want to know more.).
Shen Yijin said, “In any case, Xiao Xun, I am very happy.”
Completely burying his head on the other party’s thigh, Jing Xun’s red ears were still exposed, and he stifled a response, “Hmm.”
Shen Yijin raised his hand subconsciously. The dry thumb rubbed the young man’s cheek lightly.
Mottled lights and shadows passed continuously across the car, Jing Xuan saw Shen Yijin was wearing a ring on that slender and straight finger.
Feeling the warmth of his palm gently stroking his cheek, he also secretly stretched out his hand in the darkness, pinching a corner of Shen Yijin’s clothes.
He only hoped that the scum gong would not be so crazy and childish anymore.
He also prayed that the original plot would not happen, and that Mr. would not be blackened.
When they arrived at the chosen place, the car stopped in the parking lot outside the restaurant. Just as Shen Yijin opened the door, he was recognized by an old acquaintance.
“President Shen? What a coincidence?!” Seeing Shen Yijin’s license plate number, Nie Yandong hurriedly greeted him: “Hahaha we met again.”
“President Nie.” Shen Yijin said, “What a coincidence.”
As he said this, he had already stepped out of the car, then turned back to pick up Jing Xun in the car.
Seeing a handsome and thin young man getting out of the car under president Shen’s protection, Nie Yandong was stunned for a moment, and then immediately smiled: “It turns out that Mrs. Shen is also here.”
Jing Xun, whose foot just hit the ground: “……?”
Shen Shen Shen Shen Who the hell is Mrs. Shen.
Upon hearing this title, Jing Xun almost sprained his foot.
Fortunately, Shen Yijin was beside him. He grabbed him, so he didn’t fall.
Jing Xun couldn’t help but look at the person on the opposite side… president Nie knew him and met him last time.
But it was different from the last time. This time Nie Yandong also stood by several people wearing suits like him. He didn’t know whether they were clients or friends. At present, they didn’t come forward to greet them like president Nie. Obviously, they were not familiar with Shen Yijin. One or two of them wanted to come up to say hello but hesitated.
But despite the hesitation, it didn’t affect their measuring gazes on Shen Yijin.
In other words, It was measuring gazes on Shen Yijin and him.
Jing Xun: “……”
Nie Yandong had always been a person with thick skin. He relied on the relationship between the two family grandparents, so he dared to come directly and talk to Shen Yijin.
But getting closer, president Nie suddenly found some clues.
He saw the high-end tailored trousers worn by president Shen seemed to be slightly wrinkled on the thigh and hip area…..
Taking a closer look, it was terrible. The hem of president Shen’s shirt also seemed to have…..some faint creases? !
This is strange.
Nie Yandong was quite familiar with Shen Yijin. He knows some of president Shen’s rules and practices. It was rare for him to have such a slightly less decent moment….
He was feeling strange in his heart, when seeing Mrs. Shen’s messy broken hair and slightly flushed cheeks….
Nie Yandong suddenly understood.
Alas…..This was the newlyweds, he really didn’t expect that president Shen could be this impulsive.
The author has something to say:
Jing Xun: ?
What is this uncle thinking?
Shen Yijin: I don’t know.
