Chapter 30

       Before he met Suo Yang, Shen Huiming felt that flying was troublesome and tiring. Sometimes it only took two hours of flying distance, but counting back and forth, he spent most of the day at the airport.

       However, it was different after getting to know Suo Yang.

       He suddenly felt that the sky was a unique meeting place for him and Suo Yang. Every time he was flying, even if he was not on Suo Yang’s flight, he would feel that he had a secret connection with the other party.

       It was so romantic.

       To be thirty and still pursue romance might be laughed at when you tell people about it.

       But wonderful romance was as unattainable as love, and the deliberate pursuit of it was far less profound than this.

       He sat still and heard the voice of Suo Yang greeting other passengers.

       Suo Yang had a good voice, and this good voice always greets others in the same way but said many more beautiful things to him.

       Shen Huiming was secretly snickering there and felt like a villain gaining powers.

       He sat there, stroking the coffee-stained book with his fingers, listening to Suo Yang saying hello to everyone as if he was enjoying a certain musician’s solo at a concert.

       This was his man.

       Even if he was not at the moment, he would be in the future.

       Shen Huiming felt that people still need to be a little confident.

       The plane took off, broke into the clouds and left Berlin, and for a few short hours, they attended a wedding and stole a blessing from God.

       The return was the same as the arrival, with a connecting flight in Moscow, they would not reach the destination until the next afternoon.

       It was midnight when they boarded the plane again, after twelve o’clock, Shen Huiming finally used part of the time to finish all the work.

       Even though he had to hurry up and do everything he could on such a trip, he didn’t feel tired, on the contrary, he enjoyed it, and he attributed it all to Suo Yang.

       It was said that a person who fell in love was like a perpetual motion machine; they could always remain excited and never feel tired.

       Shen Huiming now thought that this might be true.

       It was already late at night after the plane took off again, and there were very few first-class passengers. Except for Shen Huiming, there were only two other passengers left.

       As usual, Suo Yang served other passengers first before finally coming to Shen Huiming’s place.

       He smiled and asked Shen Huiming, “Sir, do you need something to eat?”

       It was already night anyway, and he was the last one, so Shen Huiming boldly joked with Suo Yang, “Why don’t you call me Mr. Shen this time?”

       Suo Yang smiled and handed him the menu, “Have a look?”

       Shen Huiming took the menu and opened it, only to find a note inside.

       He raised his head and looked at Suo Yang. The other party was as calm as if nothing had happened, he took the note and opened it directly in front of Suo Yang.

       There were only two words in the note Suo Yang wrote to him: Good night.

       Shen Huiming smiled, put the note in the book at hand, and said to him, “I want to have a cup of coffee.”

       Suo Yang said softly, “It’s already late, are you sure you want coffee?”

       “I’m sure.” Shen Huiming asked, “And would like to invite you to have a cup too.”

       Suo Yang, “I’m sorry, we have rules against ……”

       “If not now, how about some other time?” Shen Huiming said, “I won’t force you to break the rules, but, give me a chance to buy you a coffee later?”

       Suo Yang looked at him helplessly and smiled, and said to himself, what an opportunity to drink coffee, the 24-hour date has already been set then.

       “So, are you sure you want a cup of coffee?”

       Shen Huiming closed the menu and said to him, “You can help me decide.”

       Suo Yang took back the menu and told him to wait a moment.

       It was already this late, and Suo Yang hoped that Shen Huiming could have a good rest and sleep, although it was a little difficult on the plane.

       But how so he did not have to get coffee?

       After he went back, he thought about it and poured Shen Huiming half a glass of red wine.

       When Suo Yang gave the red wine to Shen Huiming, he found that the other party was opening the book and staring at the note inside. In the dark cabin, Shen Huiming’s behaviour made him feel a little soft.

       The night and the dim light could easily give rise to ambiguity, Suo Yang walked over lightly, trying not to disturb other passengers, put the red wine on the table gently, and then sat next to Shen Huiming.

       Shen Huiming was a little surprised and closed the book to look at him.

       “Isn’t this against the regulations?” He deliberately made a joke about Suo Yang.

       Suo Yang said softly, “You can change shifts and rest in the stratosphere during midnight flights.”

       Shen Huiming looked at him with a wine glass and didn’t speak for a while.

       “Forget it.” Shen Huiming turned his head and looked out the window.

       At this time, there was a river of stars outside the window, and it was so dreamy that it was somewhat unreal.

       “What’s wrong?” Suo Yang asked.

       Shen Huiming moved his eyes from the star river to Suo Yang reflected in the glass window. He chuckled and said, “I dare not stare at you like that, the atmosphere is too good. I’m afraid I won’t be able to control myself and go over to kiss you.”

       Suo Yang’s heart skipped a beat at Shen Huiming’s words, and he clenched his palms subconsciously.

       Shen Huiming turned around and smiled, “Don’t be nervous, I can still control myself for the time being.”

       Of course, Suo Yang knew that he was just all talk. Shen Huiming was a man of discretion and would never act recklessly.

       But he had to admit that the other party’s words did make him nervous, and he suddenly wondered if Shen Huiming was really going to come over and kiss him, would he accept it or would he dodge it?

       “So, relax.” Shen Huiming drank his red wine, squeezed Suo Yang’s wrist with a smile and said, “Be my guest, I invite you to look at the stars.”

       Together, the two turned in the direction of the window and looked out at the stars.

       In all his years of flying, what kind of nights had he not seen?

       Starry ones, dark clouds, no matter what kind of high altitude night he should not find it rare, yet at this moment he felt that this starry sky was different from every day in the past.

       Because in the past, there was no Shen Huiming to look at the stars with him.

       Suddenly, Shen Huiming said, “The moon.”

       Suo Yang returned back to his senses, leaned closer to Shen Huiming’s side slightly, poked his head over, and saw the bright moon, which was soaked in the river of stars and moonlight, quiet and lonely.

       He suddenly remembered a saying—the moon under the sea is the moon in the sky, and the person in front of him is the person in his heart.

       The person in front of him?

       He turned to look at Shen Huiming.

===

       The plane landed at 1:40 pm, and the crew made all preparations to see off every passenger.

       After Shen Huiming got off the plane, he immediately sent a message to Suo Yang, asking him what his plans were for later.

       He knew that Suo Yang would not look at his mobile phone for a while, so he found a coffee shop at the airport and waited.

       The coffee shop at the airport also became their unique dating spot.

       When Suo Yang switched on his phone, he had already changed out of his uniform and was heading out. When he saw Shen Huiming’s WeChat, he immediately gave the other party a callback.

       He was not a person who liked to call, but the other party’s message had been sent for a long time and he desperately wanted to reach that person.

       Shen Huiming was quite surprised that Suo Yang called, he answered with a smile, “Are you done?”

       There was no greeting, but it seemed more intimate.

       “Yes, I’ve just finished.” Suo Yang asked, “Where are you now?”

       “Starbucks.” Shen Huiming looked back in the direction he had come from, “The one leading to the baggage claim, will you be passing by?”

       “Then I’ll go over to you,” said Suo Yang, “Are you driving? I can drive you back.”

       Shen Huiming smiled.

       Not to mention that Shen Huiming didn’t drive here at all, even if he drove, he would have had to say that he hadn’t.

       “Sure, I’ll wait for you.” He liked to wait for Suo Yang, he wouldn’t feel anxious even if he had to wait for a long time.

       Shen Huiming, who had finished his work, was very relaxed at the moment, sipping his drink while looking through Suo Yang’s Weibo.

       He looked at every place Suo Yang went and the post he made on Weibo, and felt that this person was really serious and cute.

       Shen Huiming wished to write down every city the other party had been to. In some places, Suo Yang would casually post a photo of the scenery, which he saved, thinking that maybe the two of them would go back to that place together and take a photo together later.

       He was thinking about it, but he didn’t know whether Suo Yang would give him this chance and whether they had the time.

       When Suo Yang went to look for Shen Huiming this time, he didn’t startle him like before, even though he could pass behind him, he still walked around to the bar and walked through the main entrance.

       As soon as he came in, Shen Huiming saw him and raised his hand to greet him.

       Suo Yang walked over with a smile and sat opposite him.

       “What are you doing?” Suo Yang asked.

       “Looking at your Weibo.” Shen Huiming turned the phone screen to show him, “I’ve been here too.”

       Suo Yang looked over and found that it was the banks of the Seine River in Paris.

       “And, the day before you went, I was there.”

       This was three years ago when Shen Huiming was accompanying his parents on their holiday.

       “Three years ago on the banks of the Seine, we were only a little bit close to meeting each other.” Shen Huiming said, “I don’t know if this is considered fate or not?”

       Suo Yang looked at him with a smile in his eyes, “Are you talking nonsense again?”

       “Of course not!” Shen Huiming was very serious, opened WeChat, found his father’s circle of friends, and deliberately turned to the one from three years ago to show Suo Yang, “I have proof.”

       Shen Huiming himself never posts on Moments, and rarely even takes photos.

       Fortunately, his parents had taken quite a few photos there at the time and posted them in order to show off.

       He showed it to Suo Yang, “Not nonsense, right?”

       Suo Yang didn’t expect that the two of them could have such a ‘connection’ that he couldn’t tell whether he should be happy or regretful. He thought for a while and said, “It was kind of fate, I guess. We almost met three years ago but missed it, and after three years of going round and round, we still met.”

       Suo Yang’s words were very pleasing to Shen Huiming, and he thought it was a bit of a pity at first, but when he said it like this, it seemed a bit like fate.

       “Yes, it’s fate,” Shen Huiming said, “We were destined to meet each other. Although it was three years later, the result is still the same.”

       Suo Yang smiled at him, but in his heart, he felt that it was a bit too nauseating for him to say such words.

       “Are you tired?” Shen Huiming said, “You probably didn’t rest well on the plane.”

       “It’s alright, I’m used to it.”

       Although Suo Yang said so, Shen Huiming didn’t need to think about it to know that he must be tired.

       Shen Huiming tidied up, got up and asked Suo Yang to leave together.

       “Let’s have a simple lunch,” Shen Huiming said, “After you go back and have a good rest, will you have free time next?”

       Suo Yang thought of the ‘24-hour appointment’ between the two.

       “24 hours is not possible for the time being.” Suo Yang said, “However, I can discuss with my colleagues about changing shifts to free up time.”

       When Shen Huiming heard the first half of the sentence, he thought he had no chance in the near future, but he didn’t expect Suo Yang to be willing to change shifts for him.

       “So you’re actually looking forward to our date, aren’t you?”

       Suo Yang walked beside him, smiled and didn’t intend to answer.

       Just when Shen Huiming thought he wouldn’t say anything more, Suo Yang suddenly said, “Yes, I’m quite looking forward to it.”
