Chapter 55: Displaying Affection Compilation (Part1)

 

“Tsk tsk, do you have to display your affection like this?” Tang Li next to him looked down.

The group turned around and walked in the direction of the private room, completely leaving Yan Zhengbo and others behind. Tang Li exclaimed, “Crap, Ah Jin, what happened to your neck?… Ah, I see.”

Shen Yijin: “……”

Xiao Tang on the side listened, and immediately laughed: “Hahaha, you still have sharp eyes,  boss’s neck has been…well, it has become a hot topic in the company these past two days.”

Jing Xun: “……”

The door of the private room was closed, and they could no longer hear their voices.

On the corridor where the tranquility was restored, Yan Zhengbo’s face was green and red.

On one hand, he was politely urged to leave by the manager, and he didn’t know where to put his face. On the other hand, he was still immersed in the fact that Yan Jingxun unexpectedly….climbed up to Shen Yijin. He couldn’t recover from this blow for a long time.

The one who felt even more shock than him was Shi Tailin.

Thinking that his stay for nearly a month at the Shen Group was in vain, and not knowing how to report to his uncle when he went back, he wanted to faint on the spot.

Shi Tailin seemed to have become stupid, just standing in place and muttering to himself: “It’s over this time. Now we couldn’t count on Shen Group anymore… Maybe our company will also be suppressed… How good is this ah. In case cousin Xun wants to retaliate against us…”

“Shut up.” Yan Zhengbo yelled at him not to continue any further. But Shi Tailin was already panicked and couldn’t stop at all: “Did you not hear what President Shen just said? Cousin Xun and him are a family!… It’s over, this is over.”

“Shut up! Are you done? Aren’t you embarrassed enough!”

Facing Shi Tailin who was chattering endlessly, Yan Zhengbo could only pull at his collar, and walked towards the door of the store under the eyes of the manager, security guards, and waiters.

The plan of waiting for Shen Yijin had failed, and the two of them would naturally not eat here again.

But after leaving like this, Yan Zhengbo still couldn’t hold back the shame and embarrassment. He could only make a fool of himself and cursed along the way: “F*ck, I don’t believe Yan Jingxun has the gut to mess with us. When I go back I’ll tell dad to….break his leg!”

“Besides, how can you believe what they said? That marriage…might just be an empty promise, who knows…maybe he’ll be abandoned in two days!”

  ……

Yan Zhengbo dragged Shi Tailin all the way out of the restaurant.

 In the private room, Jing Xun and Tang Li had a strange relationship of “fighting evil beings”. The two people who had met for the first time quickly became familiar with each other.

Moreover, Tang Li was obviously an outgoing and talkative person. There would be no awkward silence wherever he was present. He was worthy of having that pair of fox eyes. Although he looked carefree and a bit poisonous, he was actually very shrewd and knew what to say and what not to say.

After taking the seat, everyone tacitly didn’t mention the little episode just now. Tang Li just lamented: “Haiya, I didn’t expect Ah Jin to get married so soon… I didn’t dare to tell our alumni about this, otherwise everyone will be scared to death. This is too fast. By the way…Why didn’t our junior brother Ah Heng come? This senior is back, but he didn’t come?!”

Jin Zheheng was the same age as Shen Yijin, but Shen Yijian was a monster who had skipped five grades. Tang Li was already thirty this year, so strictly speaking, in terms of seniority, Jin Zheheng was indeed their junior.

At the mention of this, Xiao Tang was angry: “Brother Zheheng called me just now and said that he will be on vacation tomorrow. It’s inconvenient for him to come here tonight.”

“Vacation?” Tang Li was stunned, then his fox eyes narrowed and switched to an angry expression: “Not early and not later, but taking vacation now?”

He looked at Shen Yijin with an exaggerated expression: “Really?”

“En.” Shen Yijin: “Ah Heng hasn’t taken any vacation for two years. He wants to take a few days off this time.”

“…No way.” Tang Li continued dully: “Are all the people in your company so capricious?”

Shen Yijin said with a blank expression: “The company system allows employees to freely choose the time of their annual leave. There is also no rule that employees cannot accumulate their holidays.”

“Okay, okay, I got it.” Tang Li shook his head quickly, and couldn’t help looking at the opposite Jing Xun, “Your husband has always been like this, can you bear it?”

Jing Xun: “……”

H-husband?

Probably no one had ever said that Shen Yijin was his husband, so when he heard this word, Jing Xun’s face abruptly flushed.

He quickly lowered his head.

But at this time, he couldn’t allow sir to lose face outside. Jing Xun, who lowered his head slightly, said with seriousness: “Sir is a very good person.”

That’s right, compared to Mr. Tang’s “frivolousness” , he still preferred Shen Yijin’s calmness and meticulousness.

Sensing that Shen Yijin was looking at him, Jing Xun naturally returned the gaze and winked at the other party with a smile. Then under the table, his leg near Shen Yijin was touched.

In the antique private room, the dining table was also a simple rectangular mahogany table. Four people sat on each side of the long table in pairs. Shen Yijin sat on his right.

Jing Xun subconsciously reached out and touched the hand on his leg. Naturally, he(jx) touched the wedding ring on the ring finger of his(syj) left hand and rubbed it twice.

Across the table, Tang Li said: “…Oh my god.”

Although he didn’t know what the two were doing under the table, he had already been abused by looking at Jing Xun’s expression.

Tang Li snarled: “You know what, I came back early to attend  your engagement ceremony! If I knew I was going to be abused like this, I wouldn’t have come back!”

“But brother, didn’t you say you’re going to get married in a few months?” Xiao Tang said: “I thought you would bring my sister-in-law back too…”

“You don’t have a sister-in-law anymore.” Tang Li said, “Your brother has been abandoned.”

“……Huh?” Xiao Tang was stunned.

When they were on the road before, he asked more than once, why didn’t he bring his sister-in-law back. His brother deliberately changed the subject and said nothing.

Turns out… it turned out he was abandoned, that’s why he didn’t want to mention it!

“It’s over… Mom and Dad are really looking forward to you bringing my sister-in-law back, brother, you are asking for a blessing.” Xiao Tang looked at his own brother with an expression full of pity.

He remembered that his parents and his brother quarreled about this kind of thing a long time ago. His brother didn’t return to China for many years because he didn’t want to accept the marriage arranged by the family.

Now his parents had finally compromised, agreeing to his brother finding a partner outside to get married and settle down. As a result, his brother was still dumped by his sister-in-law…

That’s just too sad!

Tang Li lowered his eyelids: “…You are really my little brother, how can you say something that ruined the mood like this.”

Xiao Tang pouted aggrievedly: “I care about you too.”

Tang Li patted Xiao Tang, and said earnestly: “It’s not as simple as you think, good boy. You’re not young anymore, so it’s time to help your brother bear the burden of being urged to marry by the family.”

Xiao Tang: “???”

Of course, Tang Li was just joking, he laughed under the frightened eyes of his younger brother.

Shen Yijin asked: “How many days do you plan to stay here this time?”

“Let’s see.” Tang Li leaned backward, half-collapsing in the chair, looking a little tired: “I’ll wait until your grandpa finishes his birthday before returning.”

“But as soon as I go home, it’s bound to be another bloody storm. You just wait and see, I don’t know which girl I’m going on blind date with this time.”

As he said, he took a cigarette out of his pocket and first handed it to Shen Yijin on the opposite side.

Shen Yijin didn’t take it. He(TL) turned his head to look at Jing Xun again: “Does little brother smoke?”

Jing Xun: “No…thank you.”

Tang Li finally had to put the cigarette butt in his mouth. Just as he was about to ignite, he saw Shen Yijin tilted his head, pointed to the compartment in the room, and said ruthlessly, “Go inside and smoke.”

  “……Shit.”

Second-hand smoke was indeed very harmful, especially to non-smokers like Jing Xun and Xiao Tang.

Tang Li finally took the cigarette down and held it back for a while without smoking.

Fortunately, food had been brought in one after another. The smoking craving wasn’t so strong after moving the chopsticks.

Tang Li clamped tuna sashimi with his chopsticks and put it in his mouth. Across the table, he saw Shen Yijin move half of the lobster into his plate, then picked up a special small spoon to scoop out all the meat inside. Finally he put it in another small plate and pushed it in front of the youth next to him, saying, “Eat while it’s still hot.”

“Thank you, sir.”

Jing Xun wasn’t polite either. He forked a piece of lobster meat and put it in his mouth.

Three pounds of Brittany Blue lobsters airlifted from F country were directly steamed. It preserved the deliciousness of the lobster and made the meat firmer. When served hot, it wasn’t only fresh and delicious, but also very springy and chewy.

Jing Xun thought it tasted pretty good, so he left the rest for Shen Yijin.

Just as the lobster meat was swallowed, Shen Yijin picked up another piece of ray shark fin and placed it on his plate, then advised him: “Eat slowly, it may be a bit hard.”

Jing Xun; “Okay.”

Tang Li on the opposite side: “…..”

Seeing that Shen Yijin, who was famous for being stubborn and lacking amorous feelings, would serve a person dinner so naturally, Tang Li suddenly felt that the world had changed.

He had known Shen Yijin for more than ten years.

This was the first time he saw him like this!

“Sure enough, being in love is different.” Tang Li bitterly said.

He couldn’t smoke, so he could only drink.

Delivered with the dishes was a low-degree sake, warm, with  a faint hop fragrance.

.

Tang Li drank a small cup in one breath.

Although his tone was bitter, he was still happy for Shen Yijin. After drinking to the point of excitement, he even stood up and asked Jing Xun for a drink.

Drinking again…

Jing Xun looked at the beautifully crafted blue and white small porcelain cup in front of him and glanced in the direction of Shen Yijin before lifting it.

Shen Yijin said, “Do you want to drink Xiao Xun?”

Jing Xun obediently nodded, indicating that he wanted to taste it.

“Then drink a little.” Shen Yijin said as he picked up the jug and poured some into his cup.

“…..” Tang Li felt that he was being abused again.

Then the four people clinked glasses together.

Jing Xun didn’t taste the legendary hop fragrance. He only felt that the wine was almost the same as ethanol mixed with water. It wasn’t difficult to enter the throat, but it was not delicious either.

…Freshly squeezed juice is better!

Afterwards, Shen Yijin accompanied Tang Li to drink a little. Perhaps this kind of sake was really difficult to make people enjoy. After eating, Tang Li also proposed to go to the bar to sit for a while.

He said to Shen Yijin: “It’d better be an upscale popular nightclub…Oh, I remember, your family has a store on Acacia Street?”

“En.” Shen Yijin said, “If you want to go, just ask the driver to take you there.”

“Don’t do that ah.” Tang Li heard something wrong all of a sudden, “Do you two have anything else to do tonight? Let’s go together, do you still want to leave now?”

“……”

Shen Yijin looked at Jing Xun, and asked him, “Do you want to go?”

Tang Li, who was on the side, hated that he couldn’t cover his eyes.

It’s over.

He(syj) received countless love letters every day during his school years. Because there were too many, he even had to pay someone to sort them out and refuse them in batches. Unexpectedly, he turned out to be a henpecked husband!

On the contrary, when Jing Xun heard Acacia Street, his almond-shaped eyes that were looking at Shen Yijin involuntarily became wider.

He said: “That bar is…”

Shen Yijin said: “Yes.”

Jing Xun: “……”

That’s no mistake, that nightclub on Acacia Street was the place he arrived when he first transmigrated into the book.

It was also the place where he and Shen Yijin…met for the first time. 

If they went there, it’s precisely, revisiting. the. old. haunt.

His face, as white as suede jade, immediately turned red. Jing Xun lowered his head, wishing to bury his face on Mr.’s shoulder. But there were others here, so of course he couldn’t do so.

Shrinking beside Shen Yijin, Jing Xun nodded, “Go, go ah.”

After all, he grew up so old but never really went to a bar to play.

…The last time he just transmigrated over so it didn’t count.

Besides, It wasn’t easy for Big Brother Tang to finally return. As a friend of many years, Shen Yijin should accompany him. Unlike most people, Sir had always been very calm, he wouldn’t be so excited to give a hug or something when reuniting with a friend he hadn’t seen for many years, his words also remained moderate. But this was due to his personality, not because he didn’t care about Tang Li as a friend.

The difference could be seen by anyone who knew Shen Yijin. Tang Li should have been accustomed to this a long time ago, so he could withstand Mr.’s indifferent appearance.

The group was taken to the bar by the driver.

Chatting during the meal just now delayed some time, plus the time spent on the road. When they arrived at the bar, it was exactly 9:30 p.m.

It was the time when the nightclub started to become lively.

Shen family’s catering and entertainment business were all high-end premium establishments, and this nightclub was the same.

The nightclub was dimly lit, but crowded.

The spotlight was swaying overhead. In the center of the indoor dance floor, the bodies of countless men and women were swaying heartily to the DJ’s tune.

In order to better feel the atmosphere here, Shen Yijin  asked someone in advance to set aside a bay on the upper floor.

Sitting on the soft and comfortable luxurious circular sofa, Jing Xun could see the whole situation of the dance floor below without feeling too noisy.

A variety of melon and fruit platter was automatically placed on the table. A waiter brought the menu. Tang Li took it, and ordered two bottles of wine.

The two bottles were both medium and high-strength whiskey, with ice cubes brought along. Xiao Tang was scared silly: “Brother, are you sure you can drink so much?”

Tang Li usually looked like a dog1Use as a mockery or sarcasm, for example beast in human clothing., but his personality had always been casual. He liked to joke and fool around. 

He immediately said: “I can’t drink, aren’t there so many beautiful little brothers down there, you can invite them to drink, anyway, your boss isn’t a stingy person.”

Xiao Tang: “……”

So why does it have to be beautiful little brothers? ?

Shen Yijin didn’t comment on Tang Li’s behavior. He just took the menu again, turned to the cocktail area, and asked Jing Xun what he wanted to drink.

“Cocktails have a low degree and are mostly accompanied by juice ingredients, so the taste should be acceptable,” he said.

Jing Xun scooted over. Originally he just wanted to see the menu displayed on the pad in mister’s hand, but halfway through, he was attracted by the slender figure of the other party leaning there.

Shen Yijin, who was still wearing a suit, had his long legs bent, and sat casually on the semi-curved sofa. His appearance was full of noble aura.

From time to time, the led lights swing over their heads, reflecting Mr’s handsome face.

At first glance, his formal attire and upright appearance were incompatible with the bustling night scene, but the extreme abstinence strangely coincided with this extravagant place. At least from a distance, Shen Yijin’s cold appearance on the upper deck was an existence that could make many people’s eyes shine.

Even Jing Xun wasn’t exempt from this.


Hua: I love every little episode where Jing Xun low-key simping for Shen Yijin.(❤´艸`❤)
