Suo Yang flew to Rio de Janeiro this time, counting the time spent overnight there, the round trip took almost four days.
It was afternoon when they arrived in Rio de Janeiro, and they didn’t return until the next afternoon, so they could rest there for a day.
Suo Yang saw off the last passenger, sorted out the cabin affairs, and turned on the phone after everything was done.
After turning it on, the first message that came in was from Shen Huiming: Saw a plane and instantly missed you.
In fact, he hadn’t gotten used to this state for the time being—having someone think of him all the time, and thinking of someone else all the time. But it was undeniable that when I saw this sentence, the exhaustion accumulated after more than 30 hours of flying was swept away.
There was an 11-hour time difference between here and China. Suo Yang replied to Shen Huiming, who had already fallen asleep where the sun was shining brightly in Rio de Janeiro.
He didn’t say much, just told the other party that he landed safely—Everything is going well, don’t worry.
Suo Yang went to the hotel with everyone. As usual, two people shared a room. This time, the colleague who lived in the same room with him happened to be in the same group as his girlfriend. After the two arrived, they went to open a separate room and then said to him with some embarrassment, “Yang ge, I won’t come to stay at night.”
Suo Yang smiled and nodded to express his understanding.
It was good that she was not coming over, so he was happy to be alone.
He put away his luggage, tidied up briefly, went to take a shower, then picked up the book he brought with him, and lay down on the bed.
Suo Yang felt that he might be influenced by Shen Huiming, and even carried that ‘On Love’ book with him when he went out. He sent this book to Shen Huiming anonymously before, and the two met to finish it together. For Suo Yang, it was actually a re-reading, so he didn’t take it too seriously at the time. Every time Shen Huiming sent him the reading progress, he would turn to that page at the same time and scan the pages.
Today, tired as he was, he actually tried to reread it word by word from the first page.
[In this world, there is nothing stronger than the desire for love.]
Seeing the first sentence of the first chapter, Suo Yang laughed.
When he read this sentence last time, he didn’t think so, but now he nodded.
Shen Huiming seemed to believe that the relationship between them was influenced by ‘Romantic Fatalism’. He believed that the fate of the two had been tied together long ago. As for Suo Yang, he always thought this matter was mysterious before, and he always tried to get rid of ‘Fate’ every time it was mentioned, but always found that it seemed difficult for human beings to get rid of the so-called “Fate”.
However, even if “Fate” always haunted them, it only had a small impact on their lives, and it only leads them to meet, and later on, the whole relationship between them still depended on themselves.
Suo Yang felt that he and Shen Huiming could come together, fate only contributed 30% of the whole development, and the rest should be credited to Shen Huiming.
It was Shen Huiming who made a person who neither expected nor was optimistic about love, willingly write the word ‘love’ on paper.
He leaned on the bed, leaning on the soft pillow, and finished reading the encounter between ‘I1the person in the book’ and Chloe in the book.
He and she, he and him, they all met at thirty thousand feet, on the plane, in the clouds.
As he closed the book, Suo Yang clearly knew that ‘Romantic Fatalism’ was still just a very metaphysical thing. It could reasonably exist in the book, but it might not really exist in reality.
But regardless of whether ‘Romantic Fatalism’ existed or not, he had truly fallen in love with that man, and he truly was missing him on this afternoon in a foreign country.
He glanced at the time. It was 4:30 p.m. Rio de Janeiro time.
It should be the early morning of the next day at Shen Huiming’s place, and the other party must be in a dream.
He picked up his phone and sent another message to Shen Huiming: I wish you another wonderful day when you wake up, and I miss you too.
Suo Yang didn’t sleep for long this time, he woke up around eight o’clock.
The first thing he did when he opened his eyes was to touch his phone and check his messages.
This was also a new change for him.
Shen Huiming sent him a photo of his breakfast two hours ago—a bowl of delicious-looking wontons.
Suo Yang had barely eaten since the morning, and he hadn’t felt hungry at first, but when he saw Shen Huiming’s wontons, his stomach suddenly growled shamelessly.
He subconsciously rubbed his stomach, turned over with his mobile phone, and replied to Shen Huiming: Good morning, the wontons look delicious.
Shen Huiming had already finished his coffee when he received the text and was sitting on the sofa with his mobile phone looking through the schedule sent by his assistant yesterday.
It was another busy day.
Sometimes Shen Huiming thought, just as employees didn’t want to go to work, the boss didn’t want to go to work either, just like students didn’t want to go to school, and teachers didn’t want to either.
Who didn’t want to enjoy life and make money at the same time? But the problem was that they were all ordinary people, and if they didn’t work hard, they just couldn’t afford to eat or live.
He looked at the long list of schedules, and Shen Huiming had a headache, but when Suo Yang’s message came, he was in a good mood.
Shen Huiming replied to him and asked cautiously: Can we do a video call?
He wanted to see Suo Yang.
Suo Yang had never video-called anyone, including his parents.
Shen Huiming hadn’t received a reply for a long time, and he was a little nervous. Although the two were indeed a couple now, they really didn’t know each other well in many habits. He was still afraid that he will touch Suo Yang’s trigger.
Just as he was thinking about how to talk, Suo Yang’s video call invitation came through.
Shen Huiming laughed, thinking that he was being too cautious, while Suo Yang was not so.
The two were separated by more than 17,000 kilometres. truly separated by mountains and water, and when they saw each other on the video, their longing doubled.
“It’s already dark over there, isn’t it?”
“Well, I slept through the evening.”
Shen Huiming laughed, “Tired?”
“A little bit,” Suo Yang said, “but there is enough rest time, and we will return to the journey tomorrow night.”
Shen Huiming made a rough calculation. If Suo Yang returned tomorrow night, he would arrive in the morning of the day after tomorrow. He quickly glanced at the calendar on the table, intending to free up as much of that morning as possible.
Although Suo Yang said no, he still wanted to pick him up.
“Your wontons seem to be pretty good.” Suo Yang had already gotten off the bed, sat on the chair by the bed and looked out the window, “I’m hungry.”
The phrase ‘I’m hungry’ actually seemed a bit coquettish, which made Shen Huiming wish he could go over and cook wontons for him right away.
“I’ll cook it for you when you come back,” Shen Huiming looked at him with a smile, “What are you going to have later? Authentic Brazilian barbecue?”
Suo Yang laughed out loud, “Shall I eat alone?”
“What? You’re not going out with your colleagues?”
“No,” Suo Yang said, “I don’t really want to go out.”
Shen Huiming smiled, “Then when I have a chance in the future, I will accompany you to go.”
Suo Yang looked at the video of a fully dressed Shen Huiming and suddenly wanted to help the other party tie their cufflinks.
“Okay.” Suo Yang looked at him with a slight smile, “Where else do you plan to go with me?”
“Berlin.” Shen Huiming said, “Let’s go to a wedding later.”
The two men looked at each other for a moment.
Shen Huiming didn’t say it explicitly, because to say it now would make him seem a bit impatient and frivolous, but he was really thinking that when the two of them returned to Berlin in the future, it would be their own wedding they would be attending then.
If Suo Yang agreed.
“Okay.” Suo Yang replied with a smile.
Shen Huiming knew that Suo Yang agreed to go back to Berlin together, but he secretly changed the meaning in his heart, which brought him a double good mood.
“Are you getting ready to go to the company?” Suo Yang asked.
“Well, it’s almost time.” Shen Huiming didn’t want to go to work in the first place, and now he’s video calling Suo Yang, he didn’t want to go out even more.
Suo Yang smiled, “Go, I won’t bother you anymore.”
Shen Huiming sighed and said, “I desperately need a vacation to travel around the world with you.”
“There will be a chance,” Suo Yang waved to him, “but before that, you still have to work hard to make money.”
Shen Huiming laughed out loud, and couldn’t help feeling that Suo Yang was being genuine.
“Okay, I’m ready to go out.” Shen Huiming looked at the person on the other side of the video reluctantly and said, “I miss you very much. When you come back, I will pick you up.”
Suo Yang smiled and didn’t answer his words, just said to him, “Drive carefully, don’t get too tired.”
The two said ‘goodbye’ to each other, but it was Suo Yang who hung up the video first.
The video call cut off and the room became quiet again.
Suo Yang raised his hand and pinched his face which was a little sore from smiling, and stared at the phone interface in awe.
After the video ended, Shen Huiming sent another message. He said: Contact me anytime if you have anything to do. You are as important as work.
Suo Yang stared at the message with a smile and replied after a long time: Okay.
Shen Huiming put him in the same position as work, which didn’t make Suo Yang unhappy, on the contrary, he thought it was the right thing to do.
Love and lovers were important, but for a mature and rational adult, one should not be easily carried away by emotions.
In this world, it was realistic that one must first survive and live, and only then we could have the energy to love others well.
If Shen Huiming told him today that he was more important than work, Suo Yang might feel disappointed instead.
The person he had chosen should not be like that.
He stretched and looked out the window.
Suo Yang suddenly discovered that he had not only love for Shen Huiming but also admiration.
He appreciated the other party’s reasoning and his way of dealing with the world.
His sight fell from the scenery outside the window to himself reflected in the glass window. This man in pyjamas with dishevelled hair was so lucky. He was doing a job he liked and met his ideal lover. All of this was too wonderful to believe.
He picked up his phone, opened Weibo, and took a picture of the night scene outside the window. When he posted, he added a few rare words.
He wrote: Missing you on this night in Rio de Janeiro.
A few minutes later, a message came from Zhou Mo: What’s going on? Who did you miss?
Suo Yang never thought of hiding it, and admitted openly: I am in love with Shen Huiming.
