While his colleague gave a safety demonstration, Suo Yang was preparing for his next work. For him, today’s flight was no different from every other one before.
19 hours sounded terrible, but he was used to it.
He knew all the procedures by heart, to the point where he had developed muscle memory. He didn’t even need to think to know what he should do next.
Their company stipulates that they can be upgraded to first-class after flying for the specified number of hours. When he first arrived, he flew as much as he could and was one of the people who was promoted to first-class soon afterwards. During the same period, he also took on the task of broadcasting.
“Welcome aboard Huanxing flight AS5311 to New York. The distance of this flight…”
Suo Yang was sitting in the seat, holding the book in one hand and the microphone in the other. It was no exaggeration to say that it was done at ease.
When the broadcast sounded, everyone knew that the journey was about to officially begin.
Shen Huiming sat in a comfortable seat and listened to the broadcast with his eyes closed. At first, he just thought that the male voice was nice, cool and non-aggressive, with the right tone and speed. Listening to him, he suddenly remembered that the voice was a little familiar. He had just heard it just now.
At that time, he was not too far away from the young flight attendant, and he could clearly hear the voice of the other party.
It was him.
Shen Huiming smiled, and thought that the person was just like his voice.
He began to think about how to strike up a conversation, or at least find a reason to leave his contact details with each other.
But this kind of thing was not easy for him at all. He was a person an energetic person with great ability at the negotiation table, but he becomes timid in this kind of thing.
Although he had grown up with a privileged life since childhood, he was not the good-for-nothing young man from wealthy parents type at all. He had never done anything like striking up a conversation with someone, so he had no experience.
If the plane hadn’t taken off at this moment, he could have turned on his mobile phone and called his cousin who was an expert in love to ask for an experience, but the plane had already started to glide, and he was too late.
Shen Huiming opened his eyes and looked out the window, everything at the airport was rapidly receding.
It was hard to say whether he would have a chance to talk to the other side during the next 19 hours of flight.
How to exchange contact information with an unfamiliar flight attendant in a reasonable, polite and dignified manner had become the most important issue for Shen Huiming today.
After the plane entered the stratosphere, the flight attendants began the cabin service.
There were only eight seats in this plane’s first-class, and it was not full, so the service was not so stressful.
Suo Yang began to ask the passengers’ needs one by one from the front.
Shen Huiming felt that this was probably a good opportunity. When he heard the other party ask softly what other people needed, he had already begun to plan his next move.
When Suo Yang came over, the man in front of Suo Yang seemed to be thinking about something. He then asked him softly, “Hello sir, can I get you something to eat?”
Shen Huiming was clearly in a daze. He was thinking from the start that the flight attendant was switching to his frequency. Before boarding the plane, he was looking at a contract, and by now he was pondering about the content of the contract.
Suo Yang’s voice was just right, the tone and volume are just right, and the speech was not bad. He was not calling out to Shen Huiming for him to answer him and didn’t suddenly disturb and startle him.
As a family of businessmen, Shen Huiming grew up in a crowd of people. He knew how to treat people and deal with others. He understood all too well that there were some elites around him, no matter how good his ability at work was, at least he had enough emotional intelligence when it comes to getting along with others.
But he rarely met a person like this flight attendant. Everything was just right with him. It was as if there was a ruler in this person’s world. Even a smile, a speech, and even a look were measured to the right degree.
This kind of person was the best and most difficult person to deal with.
Shen Huiming’s interest was sparked一from his appearance to his personality.
He took the menu handed over by the other party, and at the same time glanced casually at the badge pinned on the man’s uniform.
Shen Huiming saw his name clearly: Suo Yang.
He restrained his smile and calmly flipped through the menu while quickly making his selection.
Because it was an early flight, Shen Huiming, who was a little tired, said after ordering breakfast, “Give me a cup of black coffee first, thank you.”
Suo Yang smiled lightly, “Sir, drinking coffee on an empty stomach will stimulate the stomach and may also cause a rapid heartbeat.”
Shen Huiming was the kind of person who had a cup of coffee first thing in the morning when he woke up. This habit had been maintained for more than ten years. Before going out this morning, for fear it would be inconvenient, he didn’t drink at home, but he made up for it when he got to the airport.
He was tempted to joke with the other party, and just say: Not on an empty stomach, I already have a cup in my stomach.
But when he thought about it, he let it go and said with a smile, “Okay then, I’ll listen to you, I’ll drink it after a meal.”
Suo Yang smiled at him, “Okay, please wait a moment.”
After Suo Yang left, Shen Huiming breathed a sigh of relief.
He had never felt nervous when he was with a person, but it had just happened.
He smiled self-deprecatingly, then closed his eyes.
Suo Yang has always been meticulous in his work. He carefully checked the needs of each passenger and then delivered them one by one.
“Sir, your breakfast.” Suo Yang placed the breakfast on the table in front of Shen Huiming, and even the angles of the individual small plates were surprisingly consistent.
Shen Huiming couldn’t hold back and asked, “Do you have obsessive-compulsive disorder?”
Suo Yang was startled and looked at him in confusion.
“Ah, I’m sorry, it’s a bit presumptuous for me to say that,” Shen Huiming looked at him with a smile, “I just think you are very meticulous.”
He pointed to the plate, “Each plate is equally spaced..”
Suo Yang smiled at him, “It’s not an obsessive-compulsive disorder, it’s just professionalism.”
Having said that, Suo Yang straightened up. Still with the standard professional smile, “I wish you a happy meal.”
He was hard to approach.
After Suo Yang left, Shen Huiming thought about him while eating.
However, it didn’t take long for his thoughts to return to work.
Suo Yang’s professionalism made him meticulous to the point of near perfection.
And Shen Huiming’s professionalism prevented him from spending too much energy on things that were not profitable.
After breakfast, Shen Huiming pressed the call button and asked someone to clean up the plate. This time he didn’t take the initiative to talk to Suo Yang, and the other party just said some professional words without emotion to him. Then after cleaning the table, he left with an empty plate.
Shen Huiming shrugged and felt that his love at first sight was likely to die.
As the plane weaved through the clouds, Shen Huiming looked out the window, relaxed his mind for a few seconds, then took out his laptop and started to look at the contract.
He had a very important partnership to discuss in New York this time, and his assistant had arrived a day early, just waiting for him to arrive.
The 19-hour flight was exhausting for ordinary people, but for people like Suo Yang who were used to it, there was not a trace of fatigue on their faces.
He thought it was an extremely unbearable journey, but as he focused on his work, and enjoyed rest and sleep intermittently, Shen Huiming felt that the time had passed quickly.
When he was about to get off the plane, he didn’t pay that much attention to Suo Yang, and only looked twice when he walked past.
He was busy and so was the other party.
Although he was curious and enchanted, for people like them, love did not seem to be a necessity, but work was.
Shen Huiming thought that the intersection between the two of them was limited to this. Before the plane landed, he once again enjoyed a soothing voice like an ‘ear massage’ on the radio, and then waited for the plane to land and parted ways with this handsome young man.
It was like he had put on a play himself and it was time for the curtain to go up, although he felt a bit sorry, life was already a pile of countless ‘pities’ and ‘regrets’, and this one was no exception.
At the end of the 19-hour flight, Shen Huiming was so tired that his temples were throbbing.
When they got off the plane, Suo Yang stood there to say goodbye to them one by one, Shen Huiming glanced at him, and the two smiled at each other.
It was still the kind of standardized handsome smile without any personal emotion.
Shen Huiming walked past him, ready to pick up his luggage.
However, while waiting for his luggage, Shen Huiming suddenly found that his ticket holder was missing. He recalled it and thought it was possible that he had left it on the plane.
He was already tired, but he had to get up again and walk back. He planned to ask at the information desk.
Just when he turned around, he saw Suo Yang walking towards this side quickly.
“Mr. Shen, is this your ticket holder?” Suo Yang walked too fast and was a little out of breath.
Shen Huiming smiled, “It’s mine.”
He took it and said to Suo Yang, “I was just about to go back for it.”
“I saw you as soon as you got off the plane. However, you ended up walking too fast, but at least I caught up.” Suo Yang smiled at him, “I wish you a smooth journey, I’ll go back first.”
“Hey, wait a minute!” Shen Huiming stopped him subconsciously without even thinking about it.
“Your name is Suo Yang, right?”
Suo Yang smiled faintly and nodded.
“Leave your contact information.” Shen Huiming said, “So that I can find a chance to thank you later.”
