Suo Yang woke up on the sofa the next day with a splitting headache and started to vomit as soon as he moved.
He rushed straight into the bathroom and threw up all over the place.
It was not that he hadn’t had hangovers before. He used to play around with everyone for a while when he was in college. On weekends, he would soak in bars and spend the next day recovering energy.
However, Suo Yang only fooled around for around a year or so, and then gradually began to restrain himself and no longer indulged himself indiscriminately.
He hadn’t felt this way in a long time.
After he vomited, he took off his clothes and took a shower. The cold water poured down, causing him to clench his teeth and frown.
His muddled brain was briefly awakened by the cold water, and he quickly adjusted to the temperature of the water, closing his eyelids as he finished the shower.
Afterwards, he cleaned up the bathroom and did laundry.
After he came out, he confirmed that he had no flying duties today, and then he rummaged through the cupboard to find a painkiller, took it with the cold water and slumped back down on the sofa.
He fumbled with his phone and turned it on; it still had 20% battery left.
In the middle of the night, Zhou Mo texted him back and asked him if something had happened to him.
After about an hour, Zhou Mo sent another message. It should be Shen Huiming who told the other party that he had arrived home, so he told him to take a good rest.
Except for Zhou Mo, nothing else.
Suo Yang put the phone aside and looked at the ceiling pondering the events of last night.
Nothing else impressed him, but that last call from Shen Hui Ming still made his fingers tingle when he thought about it.
Suo Yang had never been a person who was easily attracted to someone. He even would suppress his own desires deliberately, for anything and everyone.
He felt that desires were burdens, and when one had more and more desires, one would live an increasingly tiring life.
Of course, it wasn’t much easier for him now.
For several years, Suo Yang had done well, and he was very satisfied with himself.
His home was in minimalist style, and so was his life. If he didn’t want or desire anything, he wouldn’t be trapped by his desires.
However now, he was still stuck.
Just because of the voice that reached his ears late at night.
Suo Yang was not a person who had an obsession with sound, but he was indeed aroused by Shen Huiming’s voice at that moment.
Was it because he had suppressed it for too long?
Suo Yang found a reasonable explanation for himself. Because he had been abstaining from sex for too long, coupled with the catalyst of alcohol and the dark night, this had led to the buds of lust sprouting in his heart.
That was probably the case.
Suo Yang sighed and closed his eyes with a wry smile.
He knew that wasn’t the case.
Otherwise, why else would he have put his hand in his pyjama trousers now that the alcohol and the darkness had all but disappeared from his world?
Inseparable from desire.
Suo Yang thought: Let’s take a rest. I have a day off today.
It was noon when Shen Huiming came out of the conference room. The assistant asked if he wanted help ordering lunch. He waved his hand and refused.
“I’m going out, and I won’t necessarily be back in the afternoon.” Shen Huiming said, “Call me if anything happens.”
He handed the materials in his hand to the assistant and went downstairs directly.
Shen Huiming also went home shortly after Suo Yang left last night, but after all, he drank a lot of alcohol, so he didn’t drive when he came to the company this morning.
Now, he walked out of the building and took a taxi to meet with Jiang Tongyan.
The two of them met at a Spanish restaurant opposite the hotel where Jiang Tongyan stayed.
When Jiang Tongyan came, Shen Huiming had been looking at the menu for a while.
“How much did you drink yesterday?” Shen Huiming asked him, “You look half-dead now.”
Jiang Tongyan sat down and first asked the waiter for a glass of warm water. He then finished it in one gulp.
“I think I’m finished.” Jiang Tongyan said, “I’m in trouble.”
Shen Huiming looked up at him, “What’s wrong? Did you give away your company while you were drunk last night?”
Jiang Tongyan rubbed his eyebrows helplessly, “Do you know who was sleeping next to me when I woke up this morning?”
Shen Huiming put down the menu.
“Okay, I lied to you.” Jiang Tongyan let out a sigh, “The one you danced with yesterday.”
“Good for you. Surely you won’t go back empty-handed once you’ve come back, right?”
Jiang Tongyan took the menu and looked at it: “I’m not kidding you. I’m really in trouble.”
Shen Huiming leaned back in the chair and squinted at him with an amused look on his face.
“I drank too much last night, and I don’t even remember how I got back to the hotel,” Jiang Tongyan said. “I was so drunk that I definitely couldn’t get hard, so I told him I didn’t touch him.”
Shen Huiming sneered and said nothing.
“But he said his butt hurt and asked me to be responsible for him.”
Jiang Tongyan looked bitter, but Shen Huiming was happy.
It was good. No one would rob Suo Yang from him this time.
Jiang Tongyan said, “I have a good idea of what I can do, I definitely didn’t sleep with him.”
“But you have no evidence.” Shen Huiming said, “Admit it, you’ve planted yourself in someone’s hands.”
“This is a scam, I have to find a way.” Jiang Tongyan called the waiter and the two ordered their food.
“By the way,” Jiang Tongyan asked Shen Huiming, “Last night, when I turned around, you and Suo Yang were gone. Don’t tell me you went to open a room.”
Shen Huiming was about to drink water when he almost choked on his words.
“You think we’re all the same as you?” Shen Huiming said. “You’re so senseless, you little.”
Jiang Tongyan sneered, “You are really not a man.”
“You are,” Shen Huiming said politely to him, “Sleeping with someone and still not admitting it.”
“But I didn’t sleep with him!”
“Who knows whether you slept or not? There’s no proof in your words, you have to show proof.” Shen Huiming said, “With all this going on, are you not going to be able to leave today?”
“Leaving, I’m definitely leaving,” Jiang Tongyan was flying back to New York tonight, “It’s just a little troublesome.”
Shen Huiming’s cell phone rang, and the assistant called to confirm the time for a meeting tomorrow.
In the time it took for him to call, Jiang Tongyan made a decision.
“I’ve thought it over.”
As soon as Shen Huiming hung up the phone, Jiang Tongyan said, “He didn’t say I slept with him, and I think I didn’t.”
The waiter brought the food and set it up.
When the waiter walked away, Jiang Tongyan stared at the meat on the plate and said, “Anyway, the pot has been buckled down. I’ll go back to sleep with him when I’m full.”
Shen Huiming felt that the logic of this man was too formidable, and he could not wait to applaud him.
After the two finished their meal, Jiang Tongyan rushed back to the hotel with a look of grief and indignation. Before leaving, he asked Shen Huiming, “What are your arrangements for later?”
Shen Huiming didn’t tell him. He waited for Jiang Tongyan to leave, took out his phone, and called Suo Yang.
“Suo Yang?” Shen Huiming stood in the autumn sunlight, looking at the flower shop across the street, and said with a smile, “It’s me, Shen Huiming.”
“Ah, Mr Shen, how do you do?”
“It’s just, when I sent my clothes to the laundry today, I found that I had lost one of the cufflinks on my shirt. I searched everywhere but couldn’t find it. I want to ask you if you have any recollection of where I dropped it. “
Suo Yang sat on the sofa and listened to his voice. When he finished saying this, he raised his eyes slightly, and his eyes fell on the glass coffee table.
There was a silver cufflink on it, the one he told Shen Huiming yesterday that he liked the brand.

Thank you to the little angel who voted or irrigated nutrient solution for me during 2020-04-17 07:53:45~2020-04-18 07:45:33~
Thank you very much for your support, I will continue to work hard!
Originally when Jiang Tongyan said, “This is a scam, I have to find a way.” in the raw, he was saying 这是碰瓷 literal translation “This is touching porcelain.” It was a trick that reportedly takes its name from a scam in which unscrupulous antique sellers would rig up damaged porcelain vases to look whole, wait for customers to “break” one by picking it up, and then demand that they pay for the item.
But I had to change it to scam because it sounds suitable that way.
