Father Zhai and mother Zhai looked at each other, and then looked at Huo Cheng opposite them.
Huo Cheng looked at the two of them awkwardly and politely.
“Oh, he just sent his friend out. He hasn’t come back yet. You came a little late. You also know that friend. You two were on the show together.”
When Huo Cheng heard this, Hu Ying and Yan Zhi immediately came to mind.
“Really?” He asked with a smile, “Yes…”
“Pei Xu.” Mother Zhai said.
Huo Cheng was stunned for a moment.
He didn’t expect it to be Pei Xu. Why was he here, passing by? Or did the program team have any secret filming tasks?
“Pei Xu?” He asked.
As soon as he finished speaking, he heard the door open.
Father Zhai stood up and said, “Xingchen is back.”
Zhai Xingchen put down the key and was stunned for a moment when he saw an extra pair of leather shoes at the entrance.
He put on his slippers, went in and saw Huo Cheng standing in the living room.
Zhai Xingchen: “…”
Huo Cheng grinned and said, “Xingchen.”
“Why are you here!” Zhai Xingchen asked in surprise.
Huo Cheng smiled and said, “I had nothing to do, so I came here to play with you.”
Huo Cheng came at the wrong time. They had just finished eating. The four of them chatted in the living room for a while. Father Zhai asked, “Has Mr. Huo eaten?”
Huo Cheng said: “Uncle, you don’t have to be so polite, just call me by my name.”
He smiled very brightly and said frankly: “I originally planned to go out with Xingchen to have a meal. I didn’t expect that it would take me so long to look for him outside.”
When father Zhai heard this, he stood up immediately: “Then I’ll go out and buy some vegetables.”
“Uncle Zhai, don’t be busy. I’ll go out with Xingchen later. I’ll eat outside.” Huo Cheng said and looked at Zhai Xingchen: “Let’s go?”
“We’ll go out to eat.” Zhai Xingchen said to father Zhai.
He went to change his shoes and said, “It would be better if you came earlier. Pei Xu has just left.”
Huo Cheng said goodbye to father Zhai and mother Zhai, and went out with Zhai Xingchen. Father Zhai and mother Zhai hurriedly went to pick up the things he had brought and asked Zhai Xingchen to take them back with him. When Huo Cheng saw this, he said, “Uncle, aunt, if you don’t keep this, I won’t dare to come here again.”
He looked cheerful and had a more straightforward personality. He was completely different from Pei Xu.
Father Zhai said with a smile: “Come directly next time and don’t spend so much money.”
The gifts were all too expensive, and they were all high-end goods. Those who didn’t know would think that the new son-in-law was here.
Pei Xu was here, Huo Cheng was here, when had the Zhai family ever had such important guests?
The couple watched Zhai Xingchen and Huo Cheng go away.
Huo Cheng was a little taller than Pei Xu, almost as tall as a basketball player, but he had a well-proportioned figure and looked very good-looking. He was a young man with broad shoulders, long legs and a short head, who was energetic and agile.
Mother Zhai commented: “He looks much thinner and younger than in the video.”
He was most in line with the aesthetics of a straight man like father Zhai: “The boy is so handsome.”
Look at the backs of him and Zhai Xingchen. One was taller and the other was shorter. Not to mention how well they matched each other.
Mother Zhai was in a very complicated mood.
What should she do? She found that these guests were more handsome than each other!
They all came to their home as guests. Was this really just friendship?
She could only say that these rich people were easier to get along with than she thought. She was worried that her son would be marginalized among the rich second generation. In the first two days, she was so worried that she couldn’t sleep.
She was worried, but she also knew that being on TV was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a dance student.
Now she could feel completely at ease. No matter why the guests came, it at least meant that Zhai Xingchen got along very well with them and was very harmonious.
It would also be nice to make a few more friends.
It had only been two days since they last saw each other, and Huo Cheng was so happy to see Zhai Xingchen again.
The joy couldn’t be restrained at all, and it came out one after another. Just looking at Zhai Xingchen, his eyes were filled with light.
“What do you want to eat?” Zhai Xingchen asked as he walked.
“You’re familiar with this place. I’ll let you arrange it. I can just have a bowl of noodles or whatever. I have other things to do in the afternoon,” Huo Cheng said.
Zhai Xingchen said: “Then I won’t treat you to a big dinner. Can you eat noodles? There is a lobster noodle stand here, which is very famous. Many people come and line up every day.”
Huo Cheng nodded: “Okay.”
This was a very narrow alley, but there were many pedestrians. From time to time, people rode electric bicycles through it. Huo Cheng protected Zhai Xingchen with his hands, pushed him inside, and walked on the outside, saying, “Be careful.”
Zhai Xingchen asked: “Didn’t you go abroad, how did come back so soon?”
“I came back after I finished my work. I originally wanted to have a meal with everyone, but I didn’t have their contact information, so I came here to try my luck.” Huo Cheng said, “The homes of Pei Xu and the others are easy to find, but I don’t think it’s good for me to pay a sudden visit. It’s better to come to you, feel free.”
That’s right, this was the benefit of a common man like him.
Unlike wealthy families like the Zhou family and the Hu family, where you may have to make an appointment to go to their home. For such a super wealthy family, there would be pressure to enter their home. He understood this.
But he found that Huo Cheng was a little different from before.
Just eating noodles and always looking at him with a smile.
Zhai Xingchen asked: “Why do you always watch me?”
Huo Cheng smiled and said, “I haven’t seen you for two days, I still miss you.”
Zhai Xingchen laughed.
He also missed everyone.
Maybe recording a variety show was too impressive, and the imprint and psychological impact left were far more profound than daily life, making it difficult for people to forget.
“Have you not slept well recently? The dark circles under your eyes are obvious.”
Huo Cheng said: “I didn’t sleep well after traveling back and forth at home and abroad. I will have a good sleep when I get back. Are you okay this afternoon? If you are okay, come with me to buy some clothes and help me give advice.”
Zhai Xingchen said: “If we go shopping now, will we be recognized by others?”
Huo Cheng asked: “Will we?”
“I heard from the program team that our popularity is quite high. I will buy two masks later.” Zhai Xingchen said.
He had been holding it in for two days at home, and he really wanted to come out for some air.
After eating, the two of them took the car to Hua Jiang Building.
For a person of Huo Cheng’s status, when buying clothes to wear on the show, he naturally wanted to buy big brands. There was no more luxurious place in the whole Nancheng than Hua Jiang Commercial Building.
