The four of them found a barbecue restaurant to have dinner together.
Xue Meng was still chasing Jiang Lan to ask about the topic just now. He keenly noticed that Jiang Lan seemed to know the inside story of this matter.
But when he asked Jiang Lan, Jiang Lan was very vague about it.
His heart suddenly felt like his heart was scratched by a cat, itching up and down. Probably because he got familiar with it once, he was no longer so afraid when facing these unnatural events, and he even dared to be curious. While waiting for the waiter to serve the food, he went to check the post again, only to read two pages. When he turned the page again, he found that the post had been deleted.
Xue Meng: ???
He looked at Jiang Lan and muttered, “Why was the post deleted?”
Seeing him like this, Jiang Lan whispered in his ear: “That’s not a mermaid at all. The original poster is still alive and is in the hospital now.”
Xue Meng suddenly got goosebumps all over his body, put away his phone and said “oh” dryly.
He found that he was just not afraid of mermaids. If it were other things, he would still be afraid.
After the four people had dinner together, they prepared to go back to their respective homes.
Zhang Tianxing reluctantly returned Suan Ni to Jiang Lan: “The cat nest in the office is too small. Can I change it for Ni Ni tomorrow?”
Jiang Lan declined: “Uncle Zhou made that one, it’s enough.”
Zhang Tianxing pursed his lips and said, “Then I’ll bring some toys for Ni Ni.”
Jiang Lan thought that he was such a cool guy, with sharp eyebrows and a serious look on his face, but the expression he was looking at Suan Ni now made him look like an abandoned stray cat.
He laughed dryly and did not refuse this time. He just said to Suan Ni: “We are going home, say goodbye to Brother Cold.”
Suan Ni tilted his head obediently and meowed at Zhang Tianxing.
“See you tomorrow.”
Zhang Tianxing left with satisfaction.
The next day, when Jiang Lan arrived at work, he found a bunch of cat toys in the office.
If it weren’t for the limited space in the office, he reasonably doubted that Zhang Tianxing would fill it up.
Suan Ni was familiar with Zhang Tianxing, and he had already established a deep friendship with him under Zhang Tianxing’s snack offensive, so he jumped out of Jiang Lan’s arms and went to pick out his own toys.
Jiang Lan shook his head dumbfounded, took Jiao Tu out and put it on the table, and whispered: “Should I also buy you a small aquarium and put it on the table?”
Jiao Tu, who was curled up in the shell, said “hmm” in a small voice.
It was an okay day. Jiang Lan wrote a few reports and started looking for aquariums when he had nothing to do.
Jiao Tu liked sparkling gems, so the small aquarium in his office could not be too simple. It took him a long time to find an aquarium of suitable size, and then he went to Shi Jing, who often bought jade, and placed a bunch of orders for sparkling gemstone emerald.
The larger ones could be polished smooth for Jiao Tu to play with, while the smaller ones could be placed in the aquarium for decoration.
While paying, Jiang Lan had already thought about how to explain those gems. Just say they were glass imitations, so no one would be able to recognize them…
After shopping for most of the day, it was time to get off work in the blink of an eye.
While Jiang Lan was still clearing the table, Ying Qiao called, saying that he was already at the gate of the street office.
Jiang Lan said hello to Zhang Tianxing, picked up Suan Ni and strode out.
Ying Qiao was wearing a silver-gray casual suit today, and his hair was meticulously styled. Jiang Lan glanced at him twice, always feeling that he was a little different from usual.
He couldn’t tell exactly what was different. It just felt more handsome.
When Ying Qiao heard what he said, the corners of his mouth curled up slightly.
The two took the subway to the restaurant.
Jiang Lan had booked a relatively high-end Japanese food restaurant this time. Now that he had money, he naturally wanted to treat Ying Qiao to something good.
The two sat down under the guidance of the waiter. Jiang Lan handed the menu to Ying Qiao and graciously let him order whatever he wanted.
Ying Qiao fell silent as he stared at the prices on the menu. He was thinking about how to order something that would not exceed the little monster’s tolerance.
He glanced at the happy little monster, and didn’t say “This store is too expensive, why not find another one”. The little monster was eager to treat him, but he couldn’t hurt his self-esteem.
In the end, Ying Qiao ordered two pieces of sushi.
Seeing this, Jiang Lan added a bunch of sashimi. How can you go to a Japanese restaurant and not eat sashimi?!
Ying Qiao watched him order, his brows furrowing deeper and deeper: “Is it too much?”
“Not much?” Jiang Lan answered subconsciously, and then realized that he was just an ordinary little monster and shouldn’t have eaten so much. He quickly added, “I’ll give you some.”
Ying Qiao: “I can’t eat so much.”
Jiang Lan: “Oh.”
In the end, he reluctantly crossed out most of the dishes.
Ying Qiao looked at the price and found it was not high, so he was finally satisfied.
There were not many people in the store and the food was served quickly.
Jiang Lan looked at the small amount of sashimi and felt sad, thinking that he would eat it next time.
Ying Qiao, on the other hand, didn’t move his chopsticks very much and kept watching him eat. Jiang Lan was like a little hamster when he ate, his cheeks bulging and moving. From time to time, he would eat delicious food and feed it to his two younger brothers.
When Ying Qiao looked at him, Jiang Lan was also secretly looking at Ying Qiao.
Seeing that the food was almost gone and the atmosphere was also very good, Jiang Lan put down his chopsticks, cleared his throat, and got to the main topic of the day.
“Where did you buy the dried fish you gave me last time? It tasted much better than other dried fish.”
Unexpectedly, he suddenly mentioned this. Ying Qiao said casually: “Do you like it? If you like it, I will buy more for you.”
Jiang Lan stared at him seriously and began to fish and enforce the law: “What kind of fish is that dried fish made of? It tasted very fresh.”
Ying Qiao didn’t notice his increasingly angry expression and said, “It’s just ordinary dried fish.” ‘
He narrowed his eyes and pointed it out directly: “But I heard from my colleagues that that is dried stingray, special! Particularly Expensive!”
He also emphasized the pronunciation of “particularly expensive”.
Ying Qiao was shocked, but his face was calm, and he showed a trace of confusion at the right time: “The boss threw it to me casually, I thought it was just an ordinary dried fish. Is it expensive?”
Seeing that his expression didn’t seem to be fake, Jiang Lan suddenly became enlightened. He was wondering how Ying Qiao bought such expensive dried fish. It turned out he didn’t buy it himself. It was given by Boss Chen.
That made sense.
He breathed a sigh of relief and muttered: “I thought you were spending money randomly to buy such expensive dried fish as a gift to me.”
Ying Qiao smiled slightly: “How could it be? I don’t have so much money.”
Jiang Lan: “Yeah.”
“But Boss Chen just threw such expensive dried fish to you casually?”
Ying Qiao: “It seems like it was given as a gift by someone else. He didn’t like eating it, so he gave it all to me.”
The conversation between the two was flawless. Ying Qiao came around without any danger, and said as if unintentionally: “Who told you that this was from Manta Ray? I didn’t even recognize it.”
He was wondering if Zhou Xu broke his promise and exposed him behind his back.
As a result, Jiang Lan said an unfamiliar name.
Jiang Lan: “Well, I heard from Uncle Zhou that he is from the Tianshi Mansion in Longhu Mountain, and his family is very rich.”
Ying Qiao looked at the twinkling light in the little monster’s eyes and said with some disdain: “The Tianshi Mansion isn’t particularly rich.”
Jiang Lan was really confused: “Really?”
He felt that the wealth of Tianshi Mansion should not be much worse than that of Dragon Palace. Wasn’t this considered rich?
As a result, Ying Qiao raised his chin slightly, looked at him and said, “Ying Long is the richest.”
Jiang Lan suddenly realized that it was Ying Long’s braindead fan who was online again.
The author has something to say:
Longlong: Among all the demon clan, Yinglong is the richest.
Perfunctory: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
(Obviously his Dragon Palace was the richest!)
Today, Longlong was also treated perfunctorily.
