When Suo Yang opened his eyes, it was already dark, and he was in a daze for a while before realising that he had fallen asleep.
There was only one lamp turned on in Shen Huiming’s office, and the person at the desk was frowning at the computer and revising a proposal.
Suo Yang lay on the sofa and didn’t get up immediately, but just watched Shen Huiming quietly in the dark for a long time.
He was obviously the person who Suo Yang had the most intimate moment with, but looking at him like this, seemed a little strange.
This kind of strange feeling did not make Suo Yang feel uneasy, on the contrary, he felt the wonderful pleasure of discovering a new world. He had never been a person who liked to encounter new things and meet new friends, but when it comes to Shen Huiming, he was happy to feel the freshness that this person brought to him from time to time.
He just stared at him for a while, then got up and rubbed his sore neck.
As soon as Suo Yang moved, Shen Huiming immediately looked up at him.
“Just woke up?”
Suo Yang smiled, “Well, this sofa is quite comfortable.”
Shen Huiming got up, walked over, crouched down beside Suo Yang’s legs and looked up at him.
“What’s wrong?” Suo Yang asked.
Just after he asked, Shen Huiming suddenly came up to him and kissed him.
“Nothing, I just want to take advantage of the opportunity.” Shen Huiming lingered before standing up and turning on the light.
“You’ve been working?” Suo Yang also stood up and stretched his shoulders.
“Well, I thought I’d get it done quickly so we could go home.”
Suo Yang glanced at the time and found that it was already past eight o’clock, “How’s the progress? Will it be a while yet?”
Shen Huiming said apologetically, “It will take a while, I really shouldn’t have asked you to come with me.”
Suo Yang didn’t care how long he waited, anyway, wherever he was, it was the same—he would’ve fallen asleep just the same.
“Are you hungry?” Suo Yang asked him, “I’ll go downstairs and get some food, so you can eat and rest a little.”
“I planned to take you out to eat after I finished my work…”
Suo Yang gently squeezed his shoulder, “I’ll go downstairs and take a look around, you should finish your work.”
It was common for Shen Huiming to work overtime, and it was strange not to work overtime. However, when he used to work overtime and stay up late, at most he dragged his assistant to accompany him. Sometimes the two of them would quarrel over a detail of a plan, like killing enemies on the battlefield, and it had never been this cozy.
He took Suo Yang’s hand, “Thank you for your hard work.”
Suo Yang smiled, “It’s still harder for you.”
Suo Yang went downstairs, Shen Huiming stretched his waist and continued to work.
Shen Huiming’s company was in a good location, and when he went downstairs, there were quite a few restaurants nearby.
When Suo Yang went downstairs, he searched and found a restaurant with a good reputation on the internet. He packed a few dishes and took them home.
As he walked back with the packed bag, Suo Yang looked up at the office building.
It was almost nine o’clock in the evening, and the office building was still brightly lit, with lights on every floor.
This was the world they lived in, and no one had it easy.
But even so, everyone was still working hard to move forward.
Thinking about it this way, it was a bit tragic.
He looked towards the ninth floor, where Shen Huiming was sitting was the only office with the light on.
Suo Yang looked at the floors below for a while, then stepped up and walked into the office building.
He couldn’t make Shen Huiming wait too long, and he didn’t want the other party to wait too long either.
On the elevator, Suo Yang raised his arms and looked at the dishes he had packed through the bag. He didn’t know if Shen Huiming would like these dishes. He hoped that the other party would like them and that his hard-working boyfriend could enjoy his meal.
When Suo Yang came back, Shen Huiming was about to make a cup of coffee, and the two happened to meet in the corridor.
“Let’s eat first.” Suo Yang grabbed Shen Huiming’s hand and pulled him back, “Eat before you drink.”
Shen Huiming was smiling as he was pulled by Suo Yang and returned to the office obediently.
Three dishes, two bowls of rice.
Suo Yang took the food out of the bag, and Shen Huiming went to the water dispenser to fetch two glasses of water.
“Not bad,” Shen Huiming sat next to him, “This restaurant has the best taste around here.”
When Suo Yang heard what Shen Huiming said, he breathed a sigh of relief, and said proudly, “I checked it online before I went.”
Shen Huiming smiled, “Clever.”
The two sat on the sofa to eat. Although this restaurant had good reviews on the internet, and Shen Huiming also said that it tasted good, Suo Yang felt that this restaurant’s chef skills might be a bit inferior compared to Shen Huiming’s cooking skills.
He didn’t know if this was the so-called ‘love filter’, but he did prefer the dishes made by Shen Huiming.
As they ate, the two chatted softly.
Shen Huiming talked to Suo Yang about work matters—various project proposals, meetings and negotiations.
Suo Yang asked, “You are the boss, why do you need to write the plans?”
He had never worked in this kind of business, so he really didn’t know much about it.
“How should I put it?” Shen Huiming took a sip of water, “It was more reassuring to do everything by myself. But it was not a good thing for me to do so, since the people under me will never be able to take care of themselves.”
Suo Yang nodded, he felt that it was really tiring for Shen Huiming to be like this.
“In fact, they did a good job, but I just don’t feel at ease. I have to follow every project. Even when they come up with a plan, I have to read it word by word, and circle the problematic ones for them to change.”
“So much work.” Suo Yang didn’t expect Shen Huiming’s job to be like this.
“Once you get used to it, it’s just as usual.” Shen Huiming smiled, “It used to be even more difficult. In the beginning, when the company was registered, there were only two people working with me. The three of us supported the company’s work. There is no distinction between bosses and employees, and we had to do everything ourselves.”
Starting from scratch was easier said than done, and the hardships and pressures involved were unimaginable to those who had never experienced it before.
“When the company grows bigger and more outstanding people join, I will slowly be able to let go.” Shen Huiming deliberately teased him, “Do you want to consider coming to our company? A high salary is offered, and the job description is to work with me every day so that I can watch you de-stress.”
Suo Yang knew he was joking, so he teased him with a smile, “A high salary? How high?”
“I’m giving you the owner of this company. Don’t you think this salary is high enough?”
Suo Yang tried his best not to laugh, then bit his chopsticks and looked at him thoughtfully.
Shen Huiming asked, “What are you thinking?”
“Thinking about how much you are worth.”
Shen Huiming laughed out loud, “How much do you think I’m worth?”
Suo Yang thought about it seriously, and then said, “Priceless.”
A priceless treasure that couldn’t be exchanged for a thousand pieces of gold.
In such a big world, it is so rare to meet such a person.
Obviously, the two were joking, but there was something heartwarming in the way they said it.
Shen Huiming put down his chopsticks, took a sip of water, and suddenly pulled Suo Yang over for a kiss.
Suo Yang was a little surprised at first but quickly responded. The two kissed on the sofa in the office for a while, and Shen Huiming said, “Why do I like hearing you praise me so much?”
“Then let me praise you more,” Suo Yang looked at him with a smile, “If you’re in a good mood, ate a lot, and work hard when you’re full, we’ll go home early.”
Shen Huiming hugged the man in his arms and let out a long sigh of relief.
This feeling was really good, this love talk was making him happier than he imagined.
“Let me tell you something.” Shen Huiming looked in the direction of the window, and the big glass window reflected the two hugging each other.
“Okay, tell me.”
“At that time we went to New York, and we almost missed each other.” Shen Huiming said, “My assistant originally booked me the previous flight, but something happened and it was delayed, so I had to change it. If I hadn’t changed it then, maybe we would have still met later, but how we would have developed, it’s all uncertain.”
Everyone knew about the butterfly effect.
A butterfly flapping its wings in the rainforest could cause a tornado in Texas two weeks later.
Not to mention a missed encounter.
“The time I saw you, it was really…” Shen Huiming smiled, “Sort of just because of your appearance?”
Suo Yang also laughed, “So straightforward?”
“Because it sounds a bit hypocritical to say it’s love at first sight. I’m simply attracted by your appearance.”
“You are honest.”
“I must be honest with you,” Shen Huiming said, “but I can guarantee that you are the only one who has made me fall in love over the years, so I’m not that superficial, am I?”
Suo Yang didn’t make a sound, but his eyes were always full of smiles.
He liked being hugged by Shen Huiming and listening to Shen Huiming talk.
Two people from completely different worlds were hugging and chatting together as if the two worlds were slowly mingling.
“Let me ask you a question.” Shen Huiming smiled self-deprecatingly, “Why do I have so many questions today?”
“Ask away.” Suo Yang was willing to answer as many questions as possible.
“How did I stand out from the crowd of suitors?” Shen Huiming let go of him, and looked into those smiling eyes, “Tell me about it and make me proud.”
The two were very close, and this scene of exchanging heartfelt affection was a bit overly cozy.
“That night in Moscow, you made me feel horrible.”
“En.” Suo Yang paused for a moment, lowered his eyes, and looked at his hands.
His hand slowly reached out to hold Shen Huiming, and the two of them clasped their fingers tightly.
“I didn’t know that someone could see through my strange thoughts at a glance.” Suo Yang said, “It’s like the most difficult lantern riddle I devised was solved by you, and suddenly I met my soulmate.”
He raised his head and looked at Shen Huiming, “I watched a drama before, and there was a line that I still think is the truth of life.”
“In our lives, encountering love and sex was not rare, but what was rare was encountering understanding.” Suo Yang said, “I didn’t realise before that I was so desperate to be understood, and that stormy night you touched my soft spot straight away.”
Suo Yang smiled, and continued, “Also, when the sun came out, you secretly held my hand, and I was…a bit reluctant to let you go.”
Shen Huiming said in surprise, “You were awake then?”
“Well, I know you held my hand.” Suo Yang said, “At that time, felt that my heart was captured by you.”
