Get Married - Chap 14
The guild hall mentioned by Zhou Langye was very close to the villa area, and Shao Chengyun left after putting down the phone, so Zhou Langye hadn’t arrived when he arrived.
The waiter led him through the atrium to the door of a box with a golden Buddha standing at the door.
This kind of design taste is really unflattering. When Shao Chengyun passed by the Buddha statue, he glanced at it lightly and sighed in his heart. A Buddha statue stands here all day long, looking at the appearance of all living beings who have fallen into the world of men and women, how can the six roots be clean?
There were quite a few people in the box, some of whom were familiar faces. As soon as Shao Chengyun entered the door, someone stretched out his hand and embraced him.
“Mr. Shao, I’m waiting for you!”
It wasn’t any respectful words, but the tone was full of teasing.
The one who took him was Zhan Kai, the owner of this newly built clubhouse, a real rich third generation, who named an e-sports club by himself, and set up a high-end clubhouse. But he’s not a bad person, he has a cheerful personality, and he and Shao Chengyun can be regarded as friends who have frequent contacts.
Shao Chengyun asked him to bring him to the floor-to-ceiling window before he stopped. Zhan Kai took a glass of champagne from the plate of the passing waiter and handed it over. Shao Chengyun knew Zhan Kai very well, so he didn’t come here. He didn’t take the glass of champagne and said, “I can’t drink this kind of sparkling wine.”
——It’s not exciting, it tastes like a drink in your mouth, greasy and soft.
Zhan Kai got used to him like this, and laughed and scolded, “Why do you want to drink hard alcohol if you haven’t eaten dinner yet?”
Then the two of them stood by the window and chatted for a while, and within a few minutes there was a commotion. Zhan Kai looked back and said with a smile, “Zhou Langye is here.”
After hearing this, Shao Chengyun also turned around.
As soon as Zhou Langye entered the box, he was stopped by several rounds of people, shaking hands and exchanging pleasantries, he couldn’t move at all, he could only walk slowly towards the window.
This is the case in the business field. When your social status changes and you have the right to speak, all you see are smiling faces, and all the previous highs and lows seem to have disappeared.
Shao Chengyun waited for him to come to him, and teased him in the same tone that Zhan Kai had teased himself before, “Mr. Zhou, I’ve waited for you to come.”
Zhou Langye nodded at him from across the air to tell him to stop, then glanced at him, with a subtle smile, and asked, “How are you?” After a pause, he added, “Shouldn’t we go along with each other when we’re going to get married? ”
Zhan Kai actually wanted to ask just now, but now that Zhou Langye got his start, he immediately got excited and asked Shao Chengyun, “Where is he? Let’s take a look at him! I heard that he is just an adult?”
Gossip is like this, the more it spreads, the more outrageous it becomes.
Shao Chengyun probably didn’t expect that he would come out to meet friends, and the topic of Xin Rong still couldn’t be avoided.
He didn’t want to talk about it for the time being, so he didn’t intend to glance at it, but saw a platinum ring on Zhou Langye’s left ring finger, so he shook his head and laughed, and said Zhou Langye, “Which one of us will get married first? When will you get this ring?” Wear it, the big star agrees?”
Zhou Langye’s appearance is outstanding, very deceptive, and belongs to the type of gentle scum. Usually he is half-smiling, the kind of smile that hides a knife in the cotton. Now when Shao Chengyun mentioned marriage, his eyes suddenly became darker, and he responded gently, “Well, I begged you last week. marriage.”
——I begged on one knee in the kitchen, not very formal. Fortunately, Bai Hui didn’t care about these things, and finally nodded in agreement.
The ring was bought by Zhou Langye himself, and he put it on on his own initiative the day after he proposed, as if he was afraid that others would not know that he was tending to be married now.
Shao Chengyun really didn’t know about his successful marriage proposal. Both of them were busy, and the last time they met was more than two months ago.
Zhan Kai booed from the side, saying that Zhou Langye was too rude to be a friend, and he could hide such things as a marriage proposal. As a result, the topic changed and turned to Zhou Langye and Bai Hui.
After a while, Zhan Kai was called away by another group, leaving only Shao Chengyun and Zhou Langye. Zhou Langye didn’t hide it this time, and asked him directly, “Where is your marriage partner, have you seen it?”
Shao Chengyun didn’t deny it this time, saying that he saw it.
“Sleeping?” Zhou Langye asked again without changing his expression.
Shao Chengyun glanced at him, then smiled helplessly, “Can’t you be more tactful?”
Zhou Langye didn’t speak at first, staring at Shao Chengyun, then he seemed to see something, and said firmly, “I’m really asleep.”
The end of the speech had a slightly rising sound, apparently even Zhou Langye found it inconceivable.
Zhou Langye thought he understood Shao Chengyun. A career-oriented man has nothing to say about his family background or his own abilities. It may be that there are too many choices, so his emotional aspect is relatively light, and it is not easy to give anyone his sincerity. But he has always been a gentleman in the relationship, and he can hold his breath. It is really not like Shao Chengyun’s style to go to bed after a few days of acquaintance.
Zhou Langye could even see a trace of unease flitting across Shao Chengyun’s face, he couldn’t help but smiled again, and said, “Brother Yun, I asked you to come out to get together, originally I wanted to apologize to you. Now it seems… Seems unnecessary?”
Shao Chengyun didn’t understand what he wanted to apologize for, so he raised his eyebrows, waiting for him to say it himself.
Zhou Langye was Shao Chengyun’s junior in the academy back then, and he still recognized this senior after so many years, and he didn’t make any indirection, and immediately confessed, “The private detective that Aunt Lin was looking for was recommended by me. ”
In fact, Zhou Langye cannot be blamed for this matter. Finding someone whose birth date matches your horoscope from the vast crowd is about the same as winning the lottery. At that time, Zhou Langye was just helping out, and never thought that he would find it, so he didn’t mention it to Shao Chengyun.
“I met your parents at the Chamber of Commerce about a month ago. Aunt Lin was very anxious when she saw it. She was in a mess and told me about your car accident. You know my situation at the time. I hired a private detective to investigate My mother’s background. I think Aunt Lin really needs someone in this area, so I recommended one to her.”
——Who would have actually found Xin Rong as a marriage partner.
When Zhou Langye said this, he shrugged and smiled, “It’s too mysterious, isn’t it?”
What can Shao Chengyun say. Isn’t it mysterious? Thinking about it carefully, he also found it mysterious.
Zhou Langye didn’t ask any more questions. He felt that something happened to Shao Chengyun during the few days he was on the ship, but seeing Shao Chengyun’s reluctance to talk about it, he just stopped.
Later, the two talked about some work matters. The businesses of Shaw and Zhou basically did not intersect. Instead, they had no worries and had a more thorough chat. We talked about the value-added tax that has been adjusted again and again on transoceanic routes recently, and also talked about the two pieces of land in the north of Pingzhou that were not sold recently and the struggle between the government and businessmen behind it.
It was nine o’clock in the evening, and the buffet was not over yet, Zhou Langye looked at his watch and said that he was leaving and had to pick up the leader from get off work.
After speaking, he jumped off the bar stool, as if he didn’t intend to stay for another minute.
When Shao Chengyun heard Zhou Langye say the word “leader” calmly, he couldn’t help laughing, and teased him, “Is Teacher Renbai willing to take care of you? Are you calling the leader now?”
Zhou Langye said “ah”, without being awkward at all, he smiled lightly and said, “Teacher Bai doesn’t care about me, I have to move forward, right, I have to let him see my attitude.” Then he smiled a little badly Next, let’s talk about Shao Chengyun, “Brother Yun, it looks like no one cares about you. You hurt your hand and you drink here all night, and no one calls to greet you.”
Shao Chengyun didn’t expect that he could poke his own sore spot while being forced to show his affection, he was taken aback for a moment, then laughed and cursed angrily.
Zhou Langye patted him on the shoulder and said, “Say hello to my uncle and aunt, and hello to my sister-in-law. Teacher Bai is waiting for me, so let’s go, Brother Yun first.” After speaking, he turned the car keys in his hand, He stopped being polite to the people around him, and left the box without hesitation.
After he left like this, Shao Chengyun sat by the bar and remained silent for a few minutes.
In the past, he was very relaxed when he went out to hang out with friends. After playing, he went home to exercise, took a shower and slept, and continued to work the next day. Now for some reason, sitting in the crowd is a bit lacking in interest, it seems that the wine is not exciting, and I don’t want to talk too much.
When a beautifully dressed lady came over with a wine glass and asked him if he would mind sitting here, Shao Chengyun suddenly got up.
He nodded at the other party and said that you can sit wherever you want, both of which are fine. Then, in the slightly astonished look of the other party, he threw down the lady in an ungentlemanly manner, and walked away directly.
I endured it for a day, met countless people, and did all the work and entertainment. Now, even if he felt that his status had fallen, he couldn’t care less, so he could only go directly to Xin Rong at the address given by Manager Zhu in the morning.
Shao Chengyun couldn’t drive after drinking, so he called the driver to pick him up.
The driver was quite surprised when he told him the address, and he confirmed it with Shao Chengyun, “Shao always goes to Tongmiao Street? That area is now the factory area that has been relocated.”
Due to his status, the driver left half of his speech. The area around Tongmiao Street is relatively chaotic, with a complex personnel structure. The original heavy industry moved to surrounding counties and cities, leaving stretches of low-rent housing waiting for re-planning. The security situation can be imagined.
Shao Chengyun chose to go to such a place in the middle of the night, which made the driver a little confused.
Shao Chengyun sat in the back row and said, “So I asked you to drive by name, let’s go”
The driver who is now driving is also one of Shao Chengyun’s bodyguards, a retired special soldier with very strong skills. Shao Chengyun brought him just in case.
When the driver heard this, he didn’t say anything, and started the car immediately.
About half an hour later, the car drove down the city’s elevated road, the surrounding roads gradually narrowed, and the buildings also became lower. The driver said in the front row, “We are approaching Mr. Shao. The navigation shows that there is a one-way street in front of us. The car can’t go in. Why don’t we go around?”
Shao Chengyun didn’t let him take a detour, so he asked the driver to pull over. So the driver chose a brighter berth under the street light and parked the car on the side of the street.
It was only a five-minute walk from here to Xin Rong’s rented neighborhood. Shao Chengyun got out of the car and walked into the alley with the driver.
He is a rich man who has been holding a golden spoon in his mouth since he was a child. To be honest, he has never been to such a place. It’s not too messy, but the surrounding residents’ self-built buildings look very simple, and the sound of noisy TV advertisements can be heard from time to time, revealing a kind of plain and rough life.
The community where Xin Rong lived was open, and there was not even a guard. Shao Chengyun walked to the outermost building in the community, and barely saw the rusty bronze sign that said a building with four units. Xin Rong lived in one building and one unit, so she had to walk inside.
The driver followed, and couldn’t help asking, “Mr. Shao, do you have friends here?”
Shao Chengyun didn’t know how to explain it, so he said “um”, but quickened his pace.
In fact, he was not very happy on the way here. He felt that the kid Xin Rong didn’t know how to flatter him, and he would play hard to get with him after sleeping. But now that he came here in person, he felt uncomfortable.
The salary on the ship was not low, he never thought that Xin Rong’s living environment would be like this.
Then he heard louder and louder noises and fights coming from a brightly lit unit ahead.
Shao Chengyun’s heart tightened, he accelerated, and the driver followed suit. When the two of them arrived at the entrance of the building, they saw four aggressive men biting cigarettes punching and kicking a figure in white clothes, accompanied by childish cries.
Shao Chengyun recognized at a glance that the boy who had been beaten until his shirt was torn was Xin Rong, and he was holding a little girl who couldn’t see clearly in his arms, and he didn’t know whose child it was.
Because Xin Rong was taking care of the young child in his arms, it was almost impossible to fight back. Just when a man with a cigarette between his fingers punched him in the face, Shao Chengyun, ignoring the injury on his own hand, rushed in and grabbed the fist. .
