Shen Qinglan opened the refrigerator and took a look. There were quite a lot of ingredients. She took out a few things she knew how to make, and then called Fu Hengyi’s office. Luckily, Fu Hengyi happened to be in the office at the moment. He knew that his wife was going to cook at night. He promised to go home as soon as possible.
In the past few days, the recruits who came to participate in the selection felt very happy. Why, because the chief instructor no longer oversaw their training at night. Without Fu Hengyi, the big Buddha, for them, the pressure was reduced a little bit.
Knowing that it was because the instructor’s wife came to see him in the army, they were very grateful to the instructor’s wife, and everyone was praying that Shen Qinglan could stay in the military region longer.
This directly led to a scene where whenever Shen Qinglan was walking on the road in the military area, she kept meeting young men who greeted her enthusiastically, and looked at her as if seeing a saviour.
It was just that Fu Hengyi saw all these in his eyes. He called several instructors for a meeting overnight and had a long talk. The next day, the training of the recruits doubled directly. Of course, these were things for later.
“It smells so good.” Fu Hengyi smelled the smell of food as soon as he entered the door.
Shen Qinglan was serving out the last dish, “Go and wash your hands before you eat.”
Fu Hengyi went to the sink to wash his hands and brought out the dishes by the way. Shen Qinglan came out with the bowls and chopsticks, “I can only cook these few dishes, so you can just eat them.” The dishes were still the few that Fu Hengyi got on his birthday last year, but because she hadn’t made it for a while, and the craftsmanship had become rusty again, the taste was naturally worse than before.
It was not that Shen Qinglan didn’t know how to cook other dishes, but the taste was really ordinary, and it was completely incomparable with Fu Hengyi’s craftsmanship.
“My wife’s cooking must be delicious.” Fu Hengyi smiled lightly. He really felt that as long as it was made by this person, even poison would be delicious in his eyes.
“Master Fu, you are still a major general. If you speak so shamelessly, you are not afraid that your brothers will laugh at you.” Shen Qinglan was very speechless. This man’s face was getting thicker and thicker, such sweet words were even coming out of his mouth.
“I’m boasting about my wife, not someone else’s. What are you afraid of? And I’m telling the truth. If they make a joke, it will be because of envy and jealousy.” Shen Qinglan had already tasted the tomato scrambled eggs at this time, and it was a bit salty. Moreover, the scrambled eggs were a bit old, and after listening to Fu Hengyi’s words, her face blushed slightly.
Shen Qinglan didn’t eat much for dinner. She was taking traditional Chinese medicine recently, and her appetite had dropped a lot. Fu Hengyi was very worried, and even called Dr. Zhong for consultation. Knowing that it was normal, he was slightly relieved.
Fu Hengyi finished most of the dishes by himself, got up and went to the kitchen to wash the dishes, and when he came out, he was holding a bowl of fermented glutinous rice ball soup in his hand, “You didn’t eat much at night, try this, I didn’t put a lot of sugar.” Shen Qinglan was actually a little bit full now. She couldn’t eat anymore, but meeting Fu Hengyi’s eyes, she still took the bowl and ate half of it silently.
“Okay, give me the rest.” Knowing that she couldn’t eat anymore, Fu Hengyi took the remaining half bowl, ate it all in one go, and then took Shen Qinglan out for a walk.
The military area was still very lively at night, and there were still many people training on the playground.
“Fu Hengyi, why did you join the army?” Shen Qinglan asked while walking on the road in the military area, looking at the soldiers coming and going.
“When I became eighteen years old, I went straight into the barracks after I came back from abroad.” Fu Hengyi said, when a figure ran in front of him, probably rushing to do something, so he was running very fast, and he was about to bump into Shen Qinglan, so Fu Hengyi stretched out his hand, and pulled Shen Qinglan into his arms.
The little soldier stopped, with a look of shame on his face, “I’m sorry, chief.”
“It’s okay, go, be careful in the future.”
The little soldier saluted Fu Hengyi and ran away.
This was a small episode, and neither of them paid much attention to it, “Did you want to be a soldier since you were young?” Shen Qinglan was curious.
Unexpectedly, Fu Hengyi shook his head, “No, I never dreamed of being a soldier when I was a child. Both my father and mother died because of performing missions. I was brought up by my grandfather since I was a child. I knew too well the pain of losing a loved one. So I didn’t like the army at first, even though my grandfather trained me according to the barracks model.”
“Then why did you come to join the army?”
“Because of one thing. When I was seventeen, I saw with my own eyes the scene where a foreign student from country Z was bullied. There were even veterans from that country among the bullies. They felt that the military strength of country Z was too weak. Coupled with the reasons left over from history, people in country Z gave them the impression that we are weak and easy to bully.” Fu Hengyi said, this incident had left a deep impression on him, he still clearly remembered that the foreign student who was bullied had been beaten all over by them, but he stubbornly shouted at them that country Z had always been strong, they would no longer be weak, the soldiers of country Z were the heroes who defended their home and country. It was just that what he said only got him more insults and beatings.
Fu Hengyi rescued the foreign student, which shocked him a lot, so he finished his studies ahead of schedule, applied for graduation and returned to China, and joined the army. He wanted to use his own strength to prove that the soldiers in country Z were all good.
And the international student who he rescued was Mu Liancheng’s younger brother.
“You fell in love with the army afterward?”
Fu Hengyi smiled and nodded, “Only when you really get in touch with this team, you will know how innocent and lovely the people here are. They are straightforward, upright, and have their own beliefs. I love everything here, Qinglan, maybe I will never leave this army in my life.”
Shen Qinglan smiled slightly, “Fu Hengyi, it’s good to be able to do what you like to do, you can stick to your ideals, and I will always be by your side. Unless one day, you give up on me.”
The atmosphere between the two was very warm, and Shen Qinglan liked the feeling of walking with Fu Hengyi very much. She thought maybe she didn’t hate the army as much as she thought.
“Tongtong, why are you here?” Li Boming was surprised to see Fang Tong here, unexpectedly.
Fang Tong didn’t expect that she would run into Li Boming here just as she came to help Shen Junyu deliver something to Han Yi.
“Boming, why are you here?”
“I work here.” Li Boming smiled gently.
Fang Tong’s eyes widened slightly, “Are you working in the Han Group?”
“Yeah. Han Yi is my senior, didn’t I say last time that I’ve been working in my senior’s company for two years?” Li Boming explained, looking at Fang Tong who held something in her hand, “What is this?”
“I’m here to deliver something to Mr. Han, my boss ordered it.”
“Let me help you.” Li Boming said.
“No, it’s very light, not heavy.” Fang Tong refused.
“Give it to me.” Li Boming took the thing Fang Tong was holding, it was really not very heavy, “Where to send it? Mr. Han’s office?”
Fang Tong nodded, she did not expect that Li Boming was working in Han Group. In fact, she rarely saw Li Boming after the New year. Even if her mother called her and asked her to have dinner at home, she mostly refused.
Fang Tong pressed the elevator button first, so that Li Boming could go in. There were only the two of them in the elevator, which made Fang Tong a little uncomfortable. Li Boming looked at Fang Tong’s reflection on the elevator wall.
“Are you busy with work recently?” Fang Tong took the lead to break the silence.
“Well, I haven’t been in this company for a long time. Many things are still in the groping stage, and I need to put in more energy. Now that I have to do it, I must do my best.” Li Boming said softly. Wearing a suit, the whole person looked more handsome and capable, with a smile on the corner of his mouth.
Fang Tong vaguely thought of the chubby little boy who played at her house with her when he was a child. He also liked to laugh and was very patient. As long as she wanted to play, he would keep playing with her. Obviously, they had finished that game a lot many times.
When she was in school, he was a few years older than her, but not much taller than her. He would come to her house to pick her up every day. The two of them went to and from school together. Fang Tong liked to eat sweets when she was a child. Li Boming’s schoolbag was like Doraemon’s pocket, which could always produce all kinds of candies. It was delicious and sweet, but he only gave one at a time.
He would stand up for her when other classmates bullied her, obviously he was so fat, but he guarded her tightly behind him, and it turned out that she was not hurt at all, but he was beaten black and blue by his senior classmates, but he still smiled and comforted her when she was crying, “Tongtong don’t be afraid, brother will protect you.”
Yes, he had always called himself her brother, but she had never called him “brother”.
Thinking about it now, in fact, Li Boming had always been very kind to her. If the elders in the family did not deliberately match her and Li Boming, she thought that she and Li Boming should be closer than they were now, and she wouldn’t be feeling embarrassed.
“Ding” the elevator door opened, Li Boming walked out first, and then waited for Fang Tong to come out.
“Give me the things, I’ll go in by myself.” Fang Tong said.
Li Boming didn’t force it, and handed the things to her.
When Fang Tong came out of Han Yi’s office, she found that Li Boming was still waiting outside, “Why are you still here?”
Li Boming smiled, “It’s almost lunch time, I want to have a meal together, do you mind?”
Fang Tong shook her head and agreed to the lunch invitation.
Li Boming chose a restaurant near the company, “I’ve been abroad for so many years, and I’m tired of eating Western food, now I prefer Chinese food, do you mind?”
Fang Tong smiled and shook her head, “I don’t mind, I prefer it.”
