In the Junyu Group, because of Wen Xiyao’s appearance, there had been a lot less rumours about Fang Tong and Shen Junyu, especially today when Shen Junyu took Wen Xiyao and Chu Yunrong to dinner and it happened to be seen by colleagues in the company, so everyone knew that the person Shen Junyu liked was actually Ms. Wen of Xinhe International, and he even took her to meet his mother. It was estimated that good things were about to happen.
Although the people in the company had restrained themselves a lot since the two gossipers were fired by Shen Junyu last time, their attention on this matter had never diminished. Today, after knowing such a big gossip, some people looked at Fang Tong, and their eyes were very gloating.
Fang Tong ignored the looks of those people and sat calmly minding her own business. If nothing happened now, Shen Junyu would never ask her to go to his office. Many people said that she had “fallen out of favour”, which made Fang Tong just feel like a joke.
Fang Tong was definitely one of the first people to know that Wen Xiyao and Chu Yunrong were having a meal. Some people wanted to see a joke and came to Fang Tong to tell it. But what disappointed those people was that not only was Fang Tong not unhappy, there was a smile in her eyes, as if hearing the news made her feel very happy.
How could Fang Tong be unhappy? No matter whether this matter was true or false, as long as Shen Junyu had a girlfriend, everyone’s focus would naturally not be on her.
After getting off work, Fang Tong walked out of the company humming a little song, and saw Li Boming at the door, leaning on the car, as if waiting for someone, “Boming, why are you here?”
Li Boming stood up straight when he saw Fang Tong, “I’m here to find you.”
“Looking for me?”
“Well, today is my birthday. I don’t want to eat alone, and I basically don’t have any friends in the capital, so I wanted to invite you to have a meal with me, is it okay?”
Fang Tong couldn’t refuse this reason, “Of course, it’s just that I didn’t know today is your birthday, so I didn’t prepare any birthday gifts. I’m sorry.”
Li Boming smiled, “I don’t need any birthday gifts, I just think that at a day like this, it’s a bit desolate to eat alone, so I invited you to dinner.”
“We are friends. It’s normal to have dinner together on a friend’s birthday. You could have called me directly. It’s a waste of time waiting.”
“I didn’t wait long, and I had just arrived. I thought you would be getting off work soon, so I didn’t call.” Li Boming opened the car door and made a sign of invitation.
Fang Tong got in, Li Boming closed the car door, walked around to the other side and got in the car.
Ding Minghui walked out of the company door and saw Fang Tong in front of him. He was very happy. He was about to call her, but he saw her walking up to a young man. The two were talking and laughing. After getting in the car, the man returned Fang Tong’s hand. After fastening his seat belt and looking at the direction the car was leaving, Ding Minghui had an ugly expression on his face.
Since the last dispute, Fang Tong never took the initiative to contact him again. She didn’t answer his calls or send messages to him on WeChat. Occasionally they met in the company cafeteria, and Fang Tong also pretended not to know him at all, which made Ding Minghui feel very sad and make several mistakes at work.
“Minghui, what are you doing here?” A colleague from the company came out and saw Ding Minghui standing there looking in the direction of the road motionless. He patted him on the shoulder. Ding Minghui came back to his senses and shook his head, “It’s nothing. I seemed to have seen a former classmate, maybe I saw it wrong.”
“I happen to have to run something near your home today, do you want me to give you a ride?” Ding Minghui was very popular in the company and got along well with his colleagues.
“I made an appointment with a friend to have dinner today, and I won’t be going home for the time being. Thank you.” Ding Minghui declined.
The colleague smiled and said, “Then I’ll leave first.”
Ding Minghui nodded. After his colleague left, he took out his mobile phone and called Fang Tong. As expected, he was hung up on. Ding Minghui’s face looked extremely ugly.
“Why don’t you answer the phone?” Li Boming glanced at the mobile phone in Fang Tong’s hand and asked with a smile.
“Telemarketers.” Fang Tong said casually, and Li Boming smiled without criticizing.
“Li Boming, I wish you a happy birthday!” Fang Tong picked up a glass of wine and toasted to Li Boming. She was smiling and looking at him intently. Li Boming flashed his eyes, picked up a glass of juice, and touched her glass gently. “Thank you.”
“If I had known today was your birthday, I would have prepared a birthday gift for you.” Fang Tong drank the wine in her glass and said apologetically.
“I didn’t tell you in advance.” Li Boming held down Fang Tong’s hand that was reaching for the wine bottle and placed a bowl of soup in front of her. “Don’t drink so much wine. It’s not good for your stomach. Drink a little soup first to warm your stomach.”
Li Boming’s hands were dry and warm. Fang Tong retracted her hand unnaturally and said, “Actually, I don’t drink much on weekdays.”
“Well, I know, this soup tastes good, you try it. “Li Boming smiled gently, with deep endearment hidden in his eyes.
Fang Tong lowered her head to drink the soup, not seeing the deep love in his eyes.
Standing at the door of the restaurant, Fang Tong tried her best to steady herself and said, “Li Boming, you don’t have to send me off. I can take a taxi back.”
Li Boming stretched out his hand to help Fang Tong, but he didn’t expect Fang Tong’s drinking capacity was so low that she became drunk after only three glasses of wine. “I’ll take you back. You’re drunk now. It’s not safe to take a taxi back.”
“I’m not drunk.” Fang Tong waved her hand, “I’m just a little dizzy. I’ll blow the wind for a while. That’s fine.” Her eyes were blurry. Looking at the double image in front of her, she shook her head and said, “Li Boming, I can just take a taxi myself. You can go.”
With her like this, how could Li Boming feel relieved and leave her alone? After getting into the passenger seat and fastening her seat belt, Fang Tong closed her eyes. In fact, she was very conscious now, clearer than ever before, but she felt very dizzy.
“Tongtong, are you okay?” Li Boming came closer and put his hand on her cheek. Her cheek was flushed and hot.
Fang Tong shook her head, “I’m fine, I’m just a little dizzy. I don’t know what happened today, but I got drunk after three glasses of wine.”
Li Boming tried his best to drive the car as steadily as possible. Halfway through the drive, Fang Tong suddenly said, “I don’t want to go home yet. Please take me for a drive.”
Li Boming glanced sideways to confirm that she was still serious.
The car window was open, and when the cold wind blew on her, Fang Tong woke up a lot. She opened her eyes and looked out the window, “I want to go to the beach, can you take me there?”
Li Boming saw that she was awake and nodded. “Okay.” The car turned a corner in front, and Li Boming took Fang Tong to the beach.
It was a bit cold on the beach in early March, especially at night, and Fang Tong was walking on the beach. In the dark sea, only the sound of waves could be heard, and there were a few scattered stars in the sky. Li Boming followed Fang Tong, one step away.
Seeing Fang Tong holding her arms, Li Boming took off his suit jacket and put it on Fang Tong, “Put it on, don’t get sick.”
Fang Tong smiled at Li Boming, “Thank you.”
“Yes. I brought you out. If you get sick, I can’t explain it to uncle and aunt. Tongtong, have you encountered anything recently?” Li Boming asked worriedly.
Fang Tong looked at the dark sea, with the sound of waves lapping on the coastline in her ears, “It’s okay, I’m just under a lot of pressure from work recently.” It was still an excuse from work.
Li Boming looked at Fang Tong’s back with deep eyes feeling frustrated, Fang Tong always refused to tell the truth when facing him.
“It’s almost time. Let’s go back. Although we don’t have to go to work tomorrow, but if the sea breeze is blown for a long time, you will get sick.” Li Boming said warmly. Fang Tong did not object and followed Li Boming into the car.
“Fang Tong, we are friends. If you need my help with anything in the future, just ask and I will help you.” Li Boming said before Fang Tong opened the door and got out of the car.
Fang Tong paused, a flash of emotion flashed in her eyes, but she did not look back, “Thank you.”
Shen Xitong went through the discharge procedures directly after leaving the Shen family. When she returned home, she frowned at the strange woman who appeared in her home. She wrinkled tightly, “Who are you?”
When the woman saw Shen Xitong, she raised a flattering smile on her face, “You are the third sister, I am your younger sibling, just call me Xiao Li.”
Xiao Li wanted to come over and hug her . She held Shen Xitong’s arm to show affection, but Shen Xitong avoided her, “Why are you here?”
“A Yong and aunt picked me up. I am pregnant now, and they are worried about me living alone.” Xiao Li explained with a smile on her face which was still enthusiastic, and she was not unhappy at all because Shen Xitong rejected her.
At this moment, Tian Cuifang came out of the kitchen, holding a bowl of unknown soup in her hand, “Xiao Li, come here and drink the soup. This is the soup I stewed specially for you to strengthen your body.”
Seeing Shen Xitong, she was surprised, “Xitong, why are you back?”
Shen Xitong sneered, “If I don’t come back, my home will be ruined.”
“What is your home? Does this house belong to you?” Li Yong happened to come out of the room and hear Shen Xitong’s words and said.
Shen Xitong didn’t notice his words, but looked in the direction he came out with a cold face, “Why did you come out of my room?”
“What’s your room? From today on, this will be my and Xiao Li’s room. She is now pregnant, we must live in the best room. Your room is the largest and has the best lighting in the whole house, so it is natural for the pregnant woman to live in it.”
“Then where should I live?”
Li Yong pointed to a small room in the north, “That’s not your room.”
Shen Xitong said angrily, “Li Yong, don’t go too far. This is my home, my house, not yours. What you are doing now is robbery.”
“Third sister, I don’t like hearing what you say. What’s yours and mine? We are all a family. What’s yours is not ours. It’s so lively for a family to live together. Even having a meal is delicious.” Xiao Li was drinking soup and became unhappy when she heard Shen Xitong’s words and retorted.
Li Yong told her that the house was still registered in Shen Xitong’s name for the time being. It would be transferred to Li Yong’s name in a while, and then it would be her and Li Yong’s home. As for this sister, if they were happy they would give her a room to live in, if she was unhappy, she could go wherever she fell in love.
