Chapter 8 – Reunion (Part 1)
Xing Zhongwan held a video conference with Zhong Gang in his office. It’s been almost two years since the new company was established. Xing Zhongwan was very happy and gave Zhong Gang 30% of the shares, but unfortunately the other party didn’t want it and wanted to go back to the head office to chase Cheng Zhengzhe.
Xing Zhongwan angrily ended the video conference, he couldn’t push his good brother down this road. Turning over the desk calendar on the desk, it was going to be his mother’s birthday soon and he had to go back.
Two days ago, Xing Zhengping called him about his mother’s birthday and inadvertently said that Qi Yun has not been to Xing’s house once this year.
Xing Zhongwan put down the phone, shook his head gently and smiled. It was good, after so many years, Qi Yun finally let go.
He called an insider and asked the secretary to book a flight ticket for him. This time Cheng Zhengzhe and Xue Qing also went back with him.
Xing Zhongwan rubbed his sore forehead as he opened up the documents. There was a knock on the door and after a while, the secretary came in with a big bunch of roses, “Boss, the flowers are here again!”
Xing Zhongwas didn’t even lift his head, “Divide it among the secretary’s office.”
The secretary smiled, “Boss, it’s been a month. Our secretariat can open a flower shop.”
Xing Zhongwan signed the document and closed it, “This suggestion is good, you can buy snacks with the money from selling the flowers.”
The secretary covered her mouth and smiled, “Then I’m going out.”
Xing Zhongwan waved his hand. The scent of roses made him sneeze. What were these young people thinking about all day long?
If they wanted to chase him, they don’t even know he was allergic to pollen. How careless.
Xing Zhongwan took a deep breath and got up. As he walked to the floor-to-ceiling window, he looked at the clear sky outside, it was a very good time to go back…
Xing Zhongwan returned to China and was picked up from the airplane personally by Zhong Gang. A celebrity took the same flight as him, so the exit was full. The fans were waiting for the plane, along with the reporters. Xing Zhongwan was unhappy wearing sunglasses while dragging his suitcase into the crowd. In desperation, he had to take off his sunglasses to smile at the little girl holding a light sign in front of him, “I’m sorry, can you let me pass?”
When Xing Zhongwan said this, the little girl holding the light sign became impatient. However, when she raised her head and looked at him, she was stunned for a moment before making way for Xing Zhongwan stiffly.
Xing Zhongwan winked and looked over, “Thank you.”
The two girls blushed and when they recovered, they couldn’t help but squeal when Xing Zhongwan was gone.
God, what a beautiful face!
Xing Zhongwan got into Zhong Gang’s car and exhaled, “Which star is this? They’re quite popular.”
Zhong Gang glanced at him, “Boss, you forgot? You personally ordered Emma to bring him in. He’s now very popular.”
Xing Zhongwan suddenly realized, “Is it from our company? That’s amazing!”
He was very careless compared to Zhong Gang, which made Zhong Gang helpless, “Boss, sometimes I really doubt that you treat our branch as your own dear child.”
Xing Zhongwan smiled, “What do you mean? It is my own child. As long as it can make money, the more you earn, the more dearly I love my child.”
Zhong Gang was speechless, “Stay at my house these days. The old house of the Xing family is also far away, so it’ll be more convenient for you to live with me.”
Xing Zhongwan readily agreed and boredly turned on the current affairs news that just happened to be broadcasting on the radio. They were talking about the popular candidates for this general election. Qi Yun’s name entered Xing Zhongwan’s ears and Xing Zhongwan was stunned for a moment. His hand that was held up slid down the car window.
Zhong Gang looked at him from the side, “Shen Congxin is very interested in Qingyuan Capital. I have met them many times and they actually have some good offers, but President Xue told me not to have too much contact with the Shen family, so I will reject them. However, from the perspective of the company’s development, it is beneficial to have a good relationship with the Shen family. Following the domestic trend in the past few years… If there is no incident, Qi Yun will win this election.”
Xing Zhongwan hummed, but he did not say anything else.
Zhong Gang concentrated on driving. The boss was probably a little entangled with that guy.
“Next time, if Shen Congxin comes back with an offer and the case does have investment potential, then let it go. We started this company to make money.”
Zhong Gang nodded to express his understanding. Xing Zhongwan had already fallen asleep on the back of his chair when they got out of the tunnel and got onto the elevated bridge.
Qi Yun was doing an examination in the examination room when Shen Congxin went to see his attending doctor before he woke up.
“Still having trouble falling asleep?” The doctor asked while looking at his case. Shen Congxin said with a bitter face, “Yes.”
The doctor shook his head, “It’s the maximum dose. Actually, I recommend seeing a psychiatrist.”
Knowing his daily workload, he couldn’t eat well or sleep well. Even Iron Man wouldn’t be able to stand it. He was injured in his early years, and his legs hurt when it rained. Since he couldn’t sleep, the pain only got worse and worse. He also didn’t like others touching him, so they can’t relieve it through a massage.
Shen Congxin felt that taking care of Qi Yun was even more difficult than managing the company. He had never seen anyone who was more difficult to serve than Qi Yun. The doctor sighed, “That person… still haven’t been found?” “
Shen Congxin was even more depressed, “We now know where that person is, but he doesn’t dare go to see him.”
“Still, try to persuade him to see a doctor as soon as possible. Some problems are not as simple as they seem after a long time. Now is a critical period. Even a small change can help him settle down.”
Shen Congxin didn’t understand him. He still had no solution for Qi Yun’s problem.
“Doctor, prescribe some medicine. He can still sleep after taking the medicine.”
The doctor said while handing him the prescription, “If you have the opportunity to take him out to see more things, do it. Don’t just let him work blindly. Proper relaxation is good for his insomnia.” Shen Congxin agreed and took the prescription before returning to the ward. Qi Yun was buttoning his shirt expressionlessly.
“Big cousin, I’ve come back with the prescription.”
Qi Yun glanced at him, but didn’t speak. Qi Yun was very thin. Since the car accident, his body has been thin. His temperament has always been cold, but he has become more and more indifferent and the words he spoke have become less and less this year. Shen Congxin was impatient, but what could he do? The other party doesn’t listen to him at all.
Qi Yun was wasting away his life again. Ever since he came back from Country X, there was no longer any light in Qi Yun’s eyes.
“Big cousin, you haven’t been on a vacation for a long time. We can go out and play. We haven’t been to Jiangnan for a long time, we can…”
Before Shen Congxin finished speaking, Qi Yun had already left the ward and Shen Congxin hurriedly followed him out, “Big cousin, I’ve heard that in two days it will be cousin-in-law’s mother’s birthday. Maybe he will come back. We can…”
Qi Yun’s body froze for a while before slowly turning around. The straight bridge of the nose seemed even more prominent because of his thinness and Shen Congxin’s whole body got goosebumps after looking at him. Qi Yun said nothing, turned around and walked straight out of the corridor.
Shen Congxin followed in annoyance. Now, even the name Xing Zhongwan has become taboo. Cousin-in-law, if you don’t come back, my big cousin will go crazy.
On Xing Zhongwan’s mother’s birthday, Cheng Zhengzhe and Xue Qing both came. They bowed their heads respectfully in front of the tomb. They were all children adopted by Xing Zhongwan’s mother in the orphanage, so they called her mother like Xing Zhongwan. Xing Zhengping stared at his mother’s tombstone in a daze. Over the years, he has aged faster and faster, and his hair has all turned gray in less than a year. Xing Zhongwan stood in front of his mother’s tomb for a long time until someone brought flowers. Xing Zhongwan glanced at it and knew who sent it. He recognized the handwriting on it.
Xing Zhongwan squatted and said, “Mom, I’m sorry that I haven’t seen you for a long time. Are you happy? You didn’t quarrel with grandpa, right? I’ve had a good life in the past few years. I also have a career that grandpa gave me. If you have time, remember to visit me in my dreams.”
The three of them walked out of the cemetery and smiled at each other. Xue Qing suggested that the three of them have a drink together, and everyone had no objection. When she got into the car, Xue Qing said, “Do you remember the big brother Gao who used to take care of us? I heard that he returned to China and opened a bar. The atmosphere is very good. How about we go to his place?”
Cheng Zhengzhe laughed, “He got married last year, but we didn’t attend. We should give him a red envelope1Wedding money. today. I remember now, Xue Qing, you used to have a crush on someone. Hey, why are you hitting me?!”
Xue Qing gave him a blank look, “Don’t talk, no one is treating you like a mute person! How about you think about Zhong Gang? You won’t know when he might stop you.”
Cheng Zhengzhe said, “Xue Qing, you are famous for your crow mouth. I don’t care, if Zhong Gang pesters me again, I will say that I am with you and that we’re together.”
“Go away! If Laoniang is rumored to be with you, how can I have the face to eat up my little fresh meat, you sissy!”
“Hey, what’s wrong with me? What’s wrong with me? Tell me. Clearly, apart from being older, I can’t be compared to your little fresh meat.”
“Come on, with your physical strength, can you do it for three rounds?”
“Hey, Xue Qing, what do you mean? Do you want to make an appointment with me? Let’s try it.”
“Just try! I’m not afraid of you.”
Xing Zhongwan leaned against the car window with one hand and listened. As the two quarreled, his thoughts drifted to Qi Yun’s bouquet of flowers.
The neat handwriting on the delicate bouquet of hydrangeas… Qi Yun knew that he would come back, but he didn’t come to see him because he didn’t want to cause him trouble.
Xing Zhongwan smiled, leaned back in the chair and closed his eyes.
The voices of the first two bickering faded as Cheng Zhengzhe looked back at him and said softly to Xue Qing, “Say, why didn’t Qi Yun come today? He should know that Laoxing would come to Xing’s house today.”
Xue Qing frowned and did not speak. Cheng Zhengzhe said, “Do you think Laoxing wants to see Qi Yun?”
Xue Qing raised his eyebrows and glanced at Xing Zhongwan, who closed his eyes to rest his eyes. I’m afraid only he himself knows this.
T/N: Uwu, yes. Perhaps only Wanwan himself knows…
And us readers too, to some extent. ¯\_( ͡❛ ‿‿ ͡❛)_/¯
Welp, whether Wanwan wants to see Qi Yun or not… I bet ALL of us wanna see them meet again ohohoho. Who knows what kind of trouble or storm will be a-brewin’
