The whole company knew that He Yunsheng was secretly in love with Xi Feng.
From the first day Xi Feng entered the company, someone told him that He Yunsheng, the head of the finance department, is gay. He Yunsheng is in his thirties this year, but Xi Feng didn’t know exactly how old he looked because he does not appear to be old, his skin is fair and he is thin. He wears a pair of gold-rimmed glasses and always dresses properly. With his shirt buttoned to the top, he looks very sophisticated.
At that time, Xi Feng could not match the names of the people in the company. He only knew that the head of the finance department was gay. He casually said, “I don’t discriminate against homosexuals.”
After that, Xi Feng forgot about it.
It was not until two months later, one day Xi Feng returned from the outside due to some matters, and when he got into the elevator, he rushed forward recklessly and bumped into He Yunsheng, who was holding a pile of materials from inside.
Xi Feng was so tall that He Yunsheng’s body was knocked backwards and he fell on the elevator floor. The materials in He Yunsheng’s hand were scattered on the floor.
The other people in the elevator seemed to not see it and went around them. Only Xi Feng felt embarrassed, and squatted down to help He Yunsheng pick up his things, while thinking in his heart that people in the big company is really indifferent to other people.
He Yunsheng also hurriedly got up and picked up the materials with Xi Feng.
When all the materials were picked up and packed, He Yunsheng repeatedly thanked Xi Feng.
Xi Feng heard his voice a little hoarse, and asked: “Are you not feeling well?”
He Yunsheng shook his head this time and said nothing.
Later, Xi Feng learned that He Yunsheng had injured his throat in the past. Because of this, he felt that his voice was not good, so he didn’t usually speak very much.
However at the time, Xi Feng was still feeling very sorry to see He Yunsheng moved a lot of things by himself, and he offered to help him take some.
He Yunsheng smiled and said, “You don’t have to. Thank you.” Then he walked out of the elevator.
Xi Feng didn’t take this matter to heart.
That afternoon, when he was about to leave after getting off work, it suddenly rained heavily.
Young people like Xi Feng have good health. As long as the rain’s not heavy, they didn’t feel like using an umbrella, let alone carrying an umbrella with them.
He stood in front of the company’s door, calculating the possibility of taking a taxi.
It was originally the time to get off work. Seeing a group of ladies rushing to a few empty taxis around him, he suddenly became embarrassed. He gritted his teeth and decided to just run to the bus stop in the rain.
When he just stepped out and ran a short distance, a car stopped beside him. The window was pressed down, revealing He Yunsheng’s white face inside, and he asked, “Would you like to get a ride?”
Xi Feng stopped immediately and said happily, “Yes, thank you.”
He was a simple man. Hearing He Yunsheng’s invitation, he opened the car door and sat in, stepping on the clean carpet inside.
He Yunsheng just looked at it and said nothing.
Xi Feng wiped the water from his hair with his hand, then shook it without thinking.
The rain flung to He Yunsheng’s face. He silently reached out and pulled a piece of tissue. He handed one first to Xi Feng, and then pulled another one to wipe his face.
Xi Feng did not notice these small details. He said to He Yunsheng: “Please drive me to the bus stop in front.”
He Yunsheng asked him, “Where do you live?”
Xi Feng said the address casually.
He Yunsheng was silent for a while, as if calculating the route, and then said, “It’s okay. It’s still on the way, so I’ll send you back.”
Xi Feng was very glad at once, but still refused and said, “You don’t have to. How could I be so shameless?”
He Yunsheng answered flatly, “It’s fine.”
Along the way, Xi Feng talked with He Yunsheng. The company was so big that he hadn’t come into contact with many people. He didn’t know who He Yunsheng was at the beginning.
He didn’t realize that this man was his superior until he heard that the other party was the head of the finance department. Suddenly, he can’t help but to be more restrained.
However, He Yunsheng didn’t seem to care much about these, and he still chatted with Xi Feng in a rather uneventful manner.
When he got out of the car, Xi Feng patted He Yunsheng on the shoulder and said, “Thank you, Manager He.”
He Yunsheng smiled and said nothing.
And until that day passed, Xi Feng didn’t even realize that the head of the finance department, who was rumored to be gay on the day he first arrived at the company, was He Yunsheng.
Xi Feng is tall and handsome, with a bright personality. Such young people are very popular everywhere. Although he just came to the company for a short period of time, he has become very popular.
But the only bad point is that he is probably a little fidgety, and not down to earth enough.
One day in early July, Xi Feng lost a document that the department had to submit to the board of directors. The document was stored in his computer, but the hard disk failed to recover, so the document could no longer be found.
There was no other way but to work overtime this evening to catch up with the materials to be submitted to the meeting tomorrow. Fortunately, the original data needed for the document can still be found.
Xi Feng, a man with a tall build, stood in front of the department head’s desk and bowed his head to apologize.
Naturally, the supervisor scolded him a few words and told him to stay and work overtime tonight, even if it means that he had to stay up all night to finish the documents.
By the end of the day, the whole department was gone and only Xi Feng was left alone in the big office.
He was immersed in work in front of the computer, and he couldn’t even be bothered to eat dinner. He calculated that if he could finish it in the middle of the night, he could at least go home and get some sleep.
However, by eight or nine o’clock, Xi Feng felt so hungry that he couldn’t even focus on his work. He felt a little helpless. He stood up and searched for a take away phone number without finding one. He can only take his keys and head outside to get something to eat.
In the elevator going down, Xi Feng ran into He Yunsheng.
Xi Feng is friendly by nature. The last time He Yunsheng sent him home once, he naturally regarded him as a close friend. On the way to the first floor by the elevator, he kept complaining, of course, mainly about his carelessness, and then said that he had to work an extra night which caused a headache.
He Yunsheng silently heard the first floor bell, and suddenly said to him, “Why don’t you go back and work overtime first? I’ll buy you something to eat.”
Xi Feng was taken aback, “Aren’t you going back?”
He Yunsheng helplessly spread his hands, he didn’t take anything with him, how is he going back? “I’m also going to buy some snacks to prepare for working late tonight.”
When Xi Feng heard this, he smiled and said, “Thank you so much, Manager He.”
He was not the least bit courteous with He Yunsheng, thinking that there was no air-conditioning outside the company, and he will be sweaty all over after a little walk. It was really nice not to have to go out now.
As he went back to the office and continued to work for a while, Xi Feng heard footsteps walking in this direction.
At this time, there were almost no more people in the company, and the surrounding area was very quiet, so He Yunsheng’s footsteps seemed particularly loud.
As Xi Feng listened, he felt that He Yunsheng’s footsteps were quite distinctive, not rushing or slowing down, and each step was very steady.
He Yunsheng walked into Xi Feng’s office and put the bought box lunch next to his desk.
Xi Feng hurriedly thanked him, and at the same time, he pulled the chair next to him and asked him to sit down.
He Yunsheng froze for a moment, and said in his hoarse voice, “No, I’ll go back to my office first.”
Xi Feng said, “You have to eat first anyway. So sit down and let’s eat together and talk.”
He Yunsheng seemed to hesitate.
Xi Feng stood up and pressed his shoulder so He Yunsheng could sit down on the chair.
He Yunsheng is not good at dealing with such a strong personality. So he sat down and didn’t have the heart to get up and leave. He reached out and took out his own lunch box from his bag.
Xi Feng asked He Yunsheng while eating, “Is Manage He also working overtime?”
“Well,” He Yunsheng was eating unhurriedly and replied, “I have a document that I haven’t finished writing.”
“Did you write it yourself?” Xi Feng was a little surprised.
He Yunsheng just said “um” this time, and didn’t say much.
Xi Feng lamented, “Manager He is really dedicated to the company.”
He Yunsheng didn’t say anything.
After finishing his meal, He Yunsheng went back to his office.
Xi Feng continued to work overtime and he was finally done with his work when it was around twelve o’clock at night.
Xi Feng stretched his back when he stood up, he suddenly felt that he was quite lucky. At least this time when he went out, he could call a taxi home and sleep comfortably.
While taking the elevator downstairs, Xi Feng met He Yunsheng again.
He Yunsheng himself was taken aback, and nodded to Xi Feng.
Xi Feng was actually quite happy. When he saw He Yunsheng, he thought it would be best if He Yunsheng could give him a ride, but he was too embarrassed to say such words. So he approached the elevator with that thought in mind, thinking how to hint it to He Yunsheng later.
He Yunsheng was obviously going to the parking lot to pick up the car. Xi Feng noticed that he had pressed the elevator on the underground floor, so he said, “It’s dangerous to go to the parking lot alone at this late hour, right? I’ll go with you.”
He Yunsheng hesitated and replied, “I am a man, it doesn’t matter much.”
Xi Feng said, “Who knows if there is a robbery? It is hard to say that the underground parking lot is safe. It’s fine, just take it as a thank you for buying me something to eat and later I will take your car to the street and take a taxi.”
He Yunsheng heard him say that, so he had to say, “It’s not easy to take a taxi at this late hour. I’ll take you back.”
When Xi Feng heard the words, he suddenly put his hand on He Yunsheng’s shoulder and said, “Manager He is too courteous, I feel ashamed.”
He Yunsheng suddenly felt like he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. But seeing Xi Feng’s heartfelt words, he couldn’t say anything else, and just said, “You’re welcome.”
They took the elevator to the underground parking lot to pick up the car. The carpet in He Yunsheng’s car had been replaced with a new one. Of course, Xi Feng couldn’t notice these details. He was working overtime, and by this time he was very tired, and fell asleep as soon as he leaned back on the seat.
It was not until the car drove down to Xi Feng’s house, He Yunsheng nudged him awake and said, “We have arrived.”
Xi Feng woke up, sat up straight, then froze for a while, and finally said: “We have arrived, eh? Thank you, Manager He.”
He Yunsheng replied, “You are welcome.”
Xi Feng smiled, and said to He Yunsheng before getting out of the car, “I will invite you to dinner next time.”
This next time was almost half a year away.
