After a while, Yan Zhi changed his clothes and came out of the bedroom. This time he was wearing a long sleeves T-shirt with his team’s logo on it.
Hu Ying recognized it at a glance: “This is the team uniform that we all know that brand ordered for your team!”
Yan Zhi said: “Yes”.
A man who could look handsome in a sack would naturally look even more handsome in luxurious clothes.
Yan Zhi’s clothes were all extravagant, the kind that looked expensive.
Among the eight guests, his clothes were the best and the most extravagant.
He also knew romance best, he was the first among the guests to buy flowers.
Men who knew to buy flowers in daily life were very romantic.
Zhai Xingchen felt that Yan Zhi was just a begonia male lead in Jinjiang skin.
This kind of man may take you to drink at a high society dinner. He was a gentle gentleman with a dignified appearance, the kind of husband who showed filial piety, but when they returned home, he closed the door and pulled his tie, and then he looked at you tremblingly as he said: “Take off your pants, take off your clothes.”
Well, it suits Hu Ying too.
Everyone knew that Hu Ying waited for Yan Zhi outside for a long time, which caused Lin Qingning and the others to restrain their attitude towards Yan Zhi a lot.
Hu Ying took the initiative and went to feed Yan Zhi.
“I ate a little outside, so give me less.” Yan Zhi said.
“You went out today, and the production team didn’t follow you?” Hu Ying asked.
“I went to do some private business, so I didn’t let them follow.” Yan Zhi said.
“You don’t know that Hu Ying waited outside for a long time, more than half an hour, for fear that you would get drenched?” Huo Cheng said with a smile while pouring wine for everyone, “We said that from our garage to the house it’s only a few steps away from the door, so how wet could you get?”
As he spoke, he gave Hu Ying a playful look, and Hu Ying said, “Who went to wait for him specially, I think the house is boring, so I went out to get some air.”
“All right, all right.” Huo Cheng smiled.
Hu Ying raised his chin, his small face looking even more delicate under the chandelier.
“Come on, let’s have another drink before we eat,” Huo Cheng raised his glass, “thank you, Xingchen, for your hard work.”
Everyone raised their glasses together: “Thank you for your hard work.”
“Today’s menu is set by myself, I hope it suits everyone’s taste.” Zhai Xingchen said.
“It’s delicious just by looking at it.” Huo Cheng said.
“Then I’ll eat more vegetables and less rice.” Yan Zhi said.
“The rice is cooked by Huo Cheng.” Duan Yihua said.
“Under the guidance of Brother Zhai.”
“Huo Cheng doesn’t even know how to use a rice cooker.” Duan Yihua said.
“Am I the only one here who can’t use it?” Huo Cheng asked.
“Definitely not.” Zhai Xingchen pointed at Hu Ying and Pei Xu and the others said, “You don’t know how, either?”
“I haven’t really cooked at home, but you know which of us can’t cook the most?”
Hu Ying said, “It’s Brother Huo.”
“Why?” Huo Cheng asked.
“Didn’t you say that you came from a hard life.”
Huo Cheng said, “I had a hard life.”
“You had a hard life and don’t even know how to use a rice cooker?” Wen Nuo asked.
“I have a reason for this,” Huo Cheng said, “I came from a small mountain village. When I was in school, our family didn’t use a rice cooker, there were even no electrical appliances. We used ground pots, do you know ground pots, the kind that burns firewood.”
Huo Cheng’s ordinary past, for these darlings who grew up with golden spoons in their mouths, was a very strange past.
Huo Cheng talked about the situation in their hometown before. His parents were both disabled and lived on poverty subsidies from the government. At that time, he had to herd sheep, go to school, and farm. When he was in elementary school, they had to turn over a mountain every day. It took three or four hours for him to walk back and forth every day.
“Then didn’t you have to get up very early every day?”
Huo Cheng nodded: “We had morning reading at that time, and I basically got up at four o’clock, and I climbed over the mountain with my friends, and when I got to school, it was just turning bright, and after school in the afternoon, we turned over the mountain and came back, and it would have turned dark when we got home.”
Referring to the past days, Huo Cheng drank a glass of wine, shook his head, and said, “It’s very bitter.”
“Then you are very powerful. It is not easy to get out of the mountains.” Lin Qingning said.
Huo Cheng was admitted to University A, a top university in China.
“I was also lucky and my grades were good. It happened that our school had a one-on-one support activity at that time. An uncle sponsored me. Later, when I was in high school, he found a relationship and transferred me to the county, otherwise I won’t have passed the exam, our teachers are not good enough.” Huo Cheng said.
“The main reason is that you worked hard.” Zhai Xingchen said, “otherwise how can you become the number one scholar in science?”.
“Brother Huo was actually the number one student in the college entrance examination?” Wen Nuo asked in surprise.
Not only him, Hu Ying and the others were also shocked and their eyes lit up instantly.
It was by no means a false statement that they loved the ceiling configuration.
These days, the male protagonist was so involved that both humans and gods were angry.
Probably because of the atmosphere here, no one paid attention to how Zhai Xingchen knew this. Huo Cheng smiled, but his eyes were a little moist, as he said: “To be honest, I was really able to endure hardships at that time. I studied hard day and night, thinking that I can’t let others down, and I have to change my destiny by myself.”
These words were undoubtedly a bit shocking to Lin Qingning and the others. Huo Cheng’s achievements were obvious to all now. With so much behind the starting line, Huo Cheng could rely on his own efforts to get to today step by step. This seemed unimaginable to all of them.
Pei Xu raised his glass and said, “Drink one for Brother Huo.”
Huo Cheng grinned, looking like a ruffian and sad at the same time, while his face was a bit wine-coloured, such Huo Cheng completely enveloped another appearance, then he raised his glass and had a big drink.
“Then do you still have contact with that kind person?” Duan Yihua asked.
“Yes, I will go to their house every New year holiday. I have no other advantages as a person, but I know how to be grateful. Now Uncle Zhao and his family are very close to me. His son and daughter both work in my company.”
It was a heart-warming story, the benefactors were kind, the person who was helped was full of gratitude, and the hearts of those who listened felt warm.
Everyone drank another cup.
Then everyone talked about what happened when they were in primary and middle school. When Lin Qingning mentioned that he and Pei Xu were in the same school, everyone was surprised.
“It turns out that you not only know each other, but are also alumni.” Hu Ying said.
“Isn’t this worth a drink?” Huo Cheng said.
Everyone had another drink.
It may be because of the rain and drinking, but the atmosphere at the dinner table was surprisingly good this time. After eating, everyone did not leave the table. They sat around the table and continued chatting. Zhai Xingchen got up secretly and went to prepare fruit for them. The whole dining room was filled with the mellow wine smell.
Yan Zhi came over to help him, Zhai Xingchen asked with a smile, “You haven’t drunk too much, have you?”
Yan Zhi shook his head with a smile, but his face was full of alcohol and flushed red.
“What about you?”
Zhai Xingchen didn’t feel any better. His face was very white, and it was easier for his face to turn red.
Zhai Xingchen said, “I’m fine too.”
“Brother Huo is very open today.” Yan Zhi said with a smile.
Zhai Xingchen glanced at Huo Cheng. Huo Cheng was probably addicted to cigarettes, as he had been playing with the lighter in his hand. He sat on the chair with a big face, and his temperament was completely different from that of Lin Qingning and Pei Xu. With the temperament of a rough man, after drinking, he completely let go, and his speech and movements were larger than usual, but he actually had a very unique charm, very masculine, Hu Ying and the others were listening to him very seriously.
Only Pei Xu was lying on the table alone.
After Zhai Xingchen cut the fruit, he asked Yan Zhi to carry it over, took the water bottle himself, and when he walked behind Pei Xu, he patted him on the back. His hair were messed up, his face was flushed, and his usually indifferent eyes were now full of intoxication.
