Get Married - Chap 6
Taking the opportunity of going to the restaurant, Xin Rong answered some important calls and messages. When he walked out of the restaurant with coffee, cereal and a few baked snacks, he bumped into Meng Donglin.
Just a few minutes ago, Meng Donglin just received a message from him, the content was very brief: Brother Dong, I have other work these few days, so I won’t come to the restaurant for the time being.
Meng Donglin had also heard about some ambiguous situations from Manager Zhu. Seeing Xin Rong in casual clothes walking hurriedly with a plate of breakfast, he immediately called out to stop him.
Xin Rong paused, and Meng Donglin quickly walked up to him.
“Brother Dong.” Xin Rong called him.
Meng Donglin was also straightforward, “Which room are you going to?”
Xin Rong was startled for a moment, then realized, and pretended to be relaxed, “I’m going to work as a personal assistant for a few days, it’s nothing important.”
Meng Donglin’s eyes fell on him, and he swept him from head to toe, his expression became serious, and he said in a deep voice, “Xin Rong, I heard from Geng Zi about the house. Shall I help you with the down payment? If you borrow it from you, you pay it back slowly. If you encounter this kind of independent service again, you just refuse it.”
After Meng Donglin finished speaking, the expression on Xin Rong’s face also changed.
At this time, it was time for the guests to eat, and many people passed by them back and forth. Xin Rong was holding the dinner plate, the coffee on the plate was still steaming, and before responding to Meng Donglin, he gave way to the door.
Meng Donglin reached out to take the plate in his hand and said, “I’ll hold it for you.”
Xin Rong didn’t give it to him, but took a step back and looked at Meng Donglin, “Brother Dong.” He said with a smile, “Don’t do it, I’ll let me figure out the house. I appreciate the down payment, thank you. ”
Meng Donglin has a cheerful personality, and after hearing this kind of birth, he felt a little unhappy. He reached out and grabbed Xin Rong’s shoulder, and said to him, “What can you think of? Usually you have the least rotation and work overtime to save money. Why don’t you discuss things with me, you shouldn’t agree to such additional requests from guests…”
“Brother Dong!” Xin Rong interrupted Meng Donglin.
People around them kept coming and going, Meng Donglin also realized that what he said was inappropriate, and just about to apologize, Xin Rong had already taken up the conversation, “Can we talk later? I will take care of myself, don’t worry. ”
Then he shrugged his shoulders slightly, as if avoiding Meng Donglin’s hand on his shoulder, and said, “This plate is quite heavy, so I’ll send it there first.”
Meng Donglin couldn’t stop him, looked at his leaving back, and sighed helplessly.
Sometimes he also hopes that Xin Rong will not carry everything in silence. If he encounters difficulties, let him know that Meng Donglin is willing to take care of him no matter if he is using money or begging for help.
But even though the two of them have been friends since childhood and have worked together on a cruise ship for so long, Xin Rong seldom shows her vulnerable side in front of Meng Donglin. His well-behaved in front of others is really just a thin layer on the surface, in fact, he is a very strong person in his bones. Sometimes Meng Donglin had nothing to do with him.
When Xin Rong walked out of Meng Donglin’s sight, his pace was still fast, but when he reached the corridor near the 902 suite, he walked more and more slowly.
Meng Donglin just mentioned the matter of the house, which inevitably made his heart sink.
He celebrated his 21st birthday not long ago, and the only wish he made to the candle that night was to buy back the house he sold a few years ago to treat his mother. That house contained too many childhood memories, and Xin Rong wanted to keep a memory for herself.
Seeing that the house was about to be listed with an intermediary, even Meng Donglin learned about the sale of the house from a friend in the same courtyard, but Xin Rong’s down payment was still tens of thousands short. If the bank wants to review the loan qualifications of the buyers, this job on the cruise ship is also essential.
Xin Rong walked slowly to the door of room 902. When he came out just now, Shao Chengyun gave him a room card and asked him to open the door by himself. Xin Rong didn’t immediately take out the room card in her pocket, but stood in front of the door with her head slightly lowered for a while.
The reality is like this, enough for him to think about many things clearly.
Maybe Shao Chengyun just wanted to tease him for a few days, maybe Shao Chengyun still wanted him to sign the contract, but Xin Rong didn’t have the right to throw face at his immediate superior. At least he had to keep the job in front of him.
When he reappeared in front of Shao Chengyun a few minutes later, his attitude was obviously relaxed compared to when he left before.
He put the coffee on the table, and put the fried eggs and bacon by Shao Chengyun’s hand. Shao Chengyun asked him to sit and eat together, and he sat down obediently.
After eating breakfast, the two of them didn’t talk much, but Shao Chengyun noticed Xin Rong’s change of attitude.
——Suddenly he became docile, Shao Chengyun thought to himself. This kid still had a cold face before going out, why did he change so much when he came back?
He didn’t know what Xin Rong was thinking about outside. There are still four days before the cruise ship docks. As far as cultivating the relationship of a contract marriage is concerned, Shao Chengyun feels that these few days are enough for Xin Rong.
After breakfast, Xin Rong didn’t mention going back to the restaurant to work, so Shao Chengyun let him stay in his room.
Although there is network coverage on the cruise ship, it is not so stable and high-speed, and Shao Chengyun’s daily work is also affected. He can handle some important affairs, but it is not efficient.
The documents sent by the shipyard in Europe were received at a slow speed for more than ten minutes and have not been transmitted yet. Xin Rong stood by the printer, looking at those complicated samples with some curiosity.
Shao Chengyun bit a cigarette, did not light it, and walked to his side. He picked up one of the documents with one hand, opened the other hand, and gently embraced Xin Rong from behind.
Xin Rong’s body reacted very quickly, and Shao Chengyun immediately felt his tension.
“This is the latest model of cruise ship, and the number of passengers it can carry is also the highest in the world.” Shao Chengyun chatted with him nonchalantly, without letting go of his hand, “Asian shipping companies have not yet obtained this model. If Shaw buys it, next year We can strive for the maiden voyage.”
Xin Rong was held so tight that he didn’t dare to move, his mind went blank for a moment, and he gave a soft “um”, and smelled a faint scent of mint in his nostrils. I don’t know if it is the smell of the shaving lotion used by Shao Chengyun, but it smells very good.
Seeing the boy’s cheeks turn red quickly, his eyelashes fluttering, Shao Chengyun unconsciously pursed his lower lip.
At Shao Chengyun’s age, he has actually experienced everything, and he thinks that he shouldn’t be teased by such small actions. But Xin Rong’s stressful and somewhat bewildered reaction still made him laugh silently.
He held Xin Rong’s hand tighter, forcing her to get close to him, and then said in a low voice, “Do you like it? I’ll take you to see it next month?”
Just when Xin Rong’s brain was about to overheat and shut down, she managed to recover, turned her head to look at Shao Chengyun who was biting a cigarette, and changed the subject abruptly, “…Mr. Shao, do you need a lighter? I, get it for you.”
As he said that, he tried to get out of Shao Chengyun’s arms.
Shao Chengyun didn’t force him, he just let him go and said, “I don’t smoke, don’t look for it.”
Smoking is not allowed in the cabin, this is the policy on board. Shao Chengyun will not commit crimes knowingly.
After Xin Rong was embraced by him, the vigilance radar seemed to stand up again, and he began to walk around him consciously or unconsciously.
Shao Chengyun didn’t tell if he saw it through, let him do it. Anyway, the suite was so big, and Xin Rong had nowhere to go. Sometimes Shao Chengyun was on the phone with his assistant, and when he needed to print documents or something, he asked Xin Rong to help.
Xin Rong did things quickly and seldom talked, probably because he knew that some documents were of great interest, and he would never read them too much, so he printed them out and handed them to Shao Chengyun immediately.
If he had nothing to do when he was free, he would stay far away from Shao Chengyun, squatting on the window sill and staring at the little tortoise 123 basking in the sun in a daze.
It looks quite clean and transparent like that, clearly illuminated by the bright and dazzling sun, but it feels cold without desires or desires.
Shao Chengyun actually never thought that being in the same room with him would be such a feeling. Whether or not the contract can be fulfilled seems to be of secondary importance. It went on like this for most of the day. Except for lunch, Shao Chengyun went to the deck alone for a walk, and the rest of the time they stayed in the same room. tedious.
As the evening approached, a waiter knocked on the door and brought in a set of clothes. Xin Rong went to open the door and came back with clothes to give to Shao Chengyun.
“I ordered it for you, go and change it.” Shao Chengyun leaned back in the leather chair and said.
Xin Rong was stunned while holding the clothes.
Shao Chengyun said again, “There is a game tonight, you go with me.”
The cruise ship has gradually moved to the open sea. Breaking away from the constraints and framework of the inland, those entertainment items that are not known to ordinary passengers also quietly surfaced.
Shao Chengyun boarded the ship this time on a whim, and he didn’t intend to expand his social life, and he himself didn’t like those games that seek excitement or spend a lot of money. But last night in the gym, I ran into a boss surnamed You, who had a lot of background and had some business dealings with Shaw recently.
Shao Chengyun was quite surprised to meet the other party on the boat. After exercising, they chatted a few words and made an appointment to meet in a box on the cruise ship tonight.
Since the old president Shao Rui retired, most of Shao’s business territory has been handed over to brothers Shao Zhonglin and Shao Chengyun. Shao Zhonglin is mainly in charge of the private aviation part, while Shao Chengyun is in charge of the cruise ship and shipping business.
The You Feng I saw last night was a partner that Shao Zhonglin was interested in attracting recently. Shao Chengyun heard Shao Zhonglin mention it several times a while ago, and the You family has some official background, so they have a say in the approval of new routes. Although You Feng and Shao Chengyun didn’t have many direct contacts, Shao Chengyun and his elder brother Shao Zhonglin were both successful. Since the other party had sent out an invitation, Shao Chengyun had no reason to refuse the appointment.
It was inappropriate to be alone on such an occasion, and it seemed shabby.
It just so happened that Shao Chengyun had a ready-made beautiful boy by his side. So he ordered a suit of clothes for Xin Rong, planning to take him with him at night.
After hearing this, Xin Rong twitched the corners of her mouth unnaturally, and said, “Mr. Shao, I don’t quite understand… Will it delay your business if I follow you?”
Shao Chengyun smiled and didn’t take it seriously, “You don’t need to understand.”
It’s boring if you understand it, Shao Chengyun thought to himself. What I want is this natural and unadorned youthful feeling. Throwing it into the impetuous and vain crowd makes it look different.
