Near noon, the woman asked Shen Qinglan to stay for lunch, but Shen Qinglan refused. Before leaving, the woman asked the people in the store to pack a few boxes of snacks for Fang Tong to take away.
After coming out of the teahouse, Fang Tong let out a long breath and patted her chest, “I just found out that it is very stressful to get along with such a woman.”
“What kind of woman is such a woman?” Shen Qinglan asked.
Fang Tong thought for a while, “A woman who has settled down through the years. How do you know her, Qinglan?” Fang Tong had been curious about this since she saw the woman, but she was too embarrassed to ask in front of others.
Shen Qinglan smiled, “By chance, I came here for tea with my grandfather, and then we got to know each other.”
Fang Tong originally thought there must be a story, but she didn’t expect it to be so boring.
Although Shen Qinglan’s arrogance of throwing a million dollars just now made Fang Tong a little stunned, but she was the daughter raised by the Fang family, and she had seen the world, so she was not too shocked.
It was almost noon, neither Shen Qinglan nor Fang Tong had had lunch, so they drove the car to the city center, and the two found a restaurant nearby.
“Hey, Qinglan, is this near the Junyu Group?”
Shen Qinglan glanced at the surrounding environment, it was true.
“Then can I call Ding Minghui and ask him to come down to have lunch together?” Fang Tong asked Shen Qinglan for advice with her mobile phone in her hand.
Shen Qinglan nodded, Fang Tong called Ding Minghui, but the call took a while to be picked up.
“Minghui, have you eaten your lunch?”
“I’m about to eat.”
“I’m near your company. Come and eat with us. Qinglan is also here.”
Ding Minghui seemed a little embarrassed, “That Tongtong, I won’t come over. I have to go out with the manager to participate in an entertainment meeting at noon, so it is a little inconvenient.”
Fang Tong was a little disappointed, but suddenly felt a little strange, “Aren’t you guys involved in technology? Why do you still have to go out to socialize?”
Ding Minghui glanced at the manager who was waiting for him not far away, especially the impatience between the manager’s brows, and felt a little panic in his heart, so he said to Fang Tong on the other end of the phone, “Tongtong, we are leaving, I can’t talk right, I’ll explain to you later.”
Fang Tong was a little unhappy when he hung up, but she didn’t want to show it in front of Shen Qinglan, but the corners of her mouth twitched, “Qinglan, he doesn’t have time, let’s eat by ourselves.”
Shen Qinglan nodded.
“Qinglan, why don’t you call your brother out together, it’s a bit deserted with just the two of us eating.” Fang Tong said suddenly.
Shen Qinglan didn’t care but remembering that she hadn’t eaten with Shen Junyu for a long time, she called Shen Junyu.
When Shen Junyu received his sister’s call, he was instructing his assistant to order takeout. Hearing his sister’s invitation to lunch, he immediately stopped the assistant from ordering, and picked up his coat and walked out of the office.
The place that Shen Qinglan and Fang Tong chose was not far from the Junyu Group. Shen Junyu came very quickly, and probably because he didn’t come out with an umbrella, there were some drops of water on his shoulders.
Shen Qinglan took a piece of paper and handed it to him, Shen Junyu took it, smiled at Fang Tong, and looked at Shen Qinglan again. At this time, Fang Tong felt a little regretful that Shen Qinglan called Shen Junyu.
She still felt that this was a dangerous man and should be stayed away from.
Shen Junyu just said hello to Fang Tong and sat down beside Shen Qinglan, “How come you have time to invite me to lunch?”
Shen Qinglan glanced at the dishes on the table, “I ordered too much, I can’t finish it.”
Shen Junyu: “…” He was heartbroken.
“Hengyi should be back soon, right?” At the dinner table, Shen Junyu asked Shen Qinglan warmly.
“Well, the ninth of next month.” This was what Fu Hengyi told her when she called in the morning.
This month, Fu Hengyi didn’t call her for almost a week. Shen Qinglan guessed that he must have gone out to perform some mission during that time. Shen Qinglan had lingering fears about his missions now, even if she didn’t show anything on her face, but she was still worried in her heart, she couldn’t forget the way Fu Hengyi was injured and almost couldn’t come back the last time. It was not until Fu Hengyi called her and she heard that his voice was the same, that Shen Qinglan was relieved.
Shen Junyu thought for a while, on the ninth of next month, that would be the twenty-eighth, “This year’s New Year, you would not spend at home?”
Shen Qinglan glanced at Shen Junyu, her eyes were dim, but Shen Junyu still saw contempt in her eyes. Shen Junyu touched his nose, and thought a married woman was really like spilled water, just look at his married sister.
Speaking of which, Shen Dashao, which married girl have you ever seen who spent the New Year at her parents’ home, and that too in her first year of marriage?
Fang Tong ate her meal quietly. To be precise, she kept her head down while eating her rice. Although Shen Junyu always seemed gentle and refined, Fang Tong still felt a lot of pressure.
A pair of chopsticks suddenly appeared in front of her eyes, and then a piece of pork ribs with sauce appeared in her bowl. Fang Tong raised her head and was about to thank Shen Qinglan, but her eyes met Shen Junyu’s gentle gaze, and she saw that it was Shen Junyu who had served her.
“Seeing that you’ve been eating white rice, eat more vegetables. It’s best for girls to not be picky eaters.” Shen Junyu said with a slight smile, just like a brother.
Fang Tong looked a little unnatural, and stood up, “Well, I’ll go to the bathroom first.”
Shen Junyu looked at Shen Qinglan with a frustrated expression, “Do I look terrible?” He could naturally see how Fang Tong treated him, and it was totally estranged.
Shen Qinglan also didn’t understand Fang Tong’s attitude towards Shen Junyu, but she didn’t speak, just took a sip of soup silently.
Shen Junyu smiled, and suddenly felt that his sister’s two friends were very interesting, one called him a male god, in fact every time she saw him, her eyes went red, and the other was avoiding him like a snake, for fear that he would eat her.
Fang Tong came out of the box and took a deep breath. The breath that was stuck in her chest finally came out. She grabbed a waiter and asked for the direction to the bathroom, but when she passed the lobby, she glanced around at random, and her eyes lit up.
It was Ding Minghui, having dinner with a woman. Although Ding Minghui had his back to her, she could recognize his back at a glance.
The woman opposite seemed to be a little old, she looked like she was around 30 years old, remembering what Ding Minghui said about going out to socialize with his manager at noon, could it be with this woman, but where was his manager?
Fang Tong subconsciously wanted to take out her mobile phone to call Ding Minghui, she touched her pocket, only to realize that her mobile phone was in her bag. She stopped and watched for a while. Seeing that the two of them were just having a meal without any intimate behaviour, Fang Tong suppressed the uneasiness in her heart, shook her head and laughed.
