Chapter 46 What if I want to live with him?
Lian Yin didn’t go back to Lang Zhuoyu’s house immediately after getting off work today, but asked Xu Lin out for dinner. They hadn’t seen each other for a while.
“Why is it a hot pot restaurant?” Lian Yin wondered when he saw the address that Xu Lin sent him.
Xu Lin didn’t eat spicy food. Lian Yin as a Xicheng native who loved spicy food, every time he had dinner, would have to accommodate Xu Lin to choose lighter flavors.
When he arrived at the hot pot restaurant, Lian Yin reported Xu Lin’s name and phone number, and the waiter led him to a table for four by the window.
Just when Lian Yin was thinking about whether Xu Lin was going to bring other friends, someone called his name.
“Lian Yin, you came very early.”
Xu Lin wore slippers and came out. He walked in front of him in a leisurely suit, followed by a tall man with a stern face.
Lian Yin greeted Xu Lin, looked at the man behind him, and asked blankly, “Is this your friend?
“Just leeching a meal.” Xu Lin pulled out the chair to sit down. Beside him, the man only glanced at Lian Yin for a second and did not even smile.
Lian Yin felt that this person was cold and he didn’t want to take the initiative to greet him.
“Why are you standing still?” Xu Lin suddenly said.
Lian Yin was startled and thought he was talking about himself, but turned to look and found that Xu Lin was speaking to the air-conditioned man.
“Hello, you can’t even introduce yourself? This is my friend, can you be a little more polite?” Xu Lin said in a tone that sounded like he was training a person.
When the man heard it, he didn’t look strange at all. He was still expressionless, but he finally opened his mouth and introduced himself very succinctly.
“My name is Gao Hanzhi.”
It was really cold. Lian Yin complained silently in his heart, then forced a smile, and introduced, “I’m Lian Yin, nice to meet you.”
Gao Hanzhi nodded and looked away.
Uh… Lian Yin rarely saw such a personality, but since he was Xu Lin’s friend, he didn’t feel annoyed, thinking that this person may be slow.
The pot boiled for a while. Xu Lin took a chopstick of meat and put it into the clear soup pot to cook. Lian Yin and Gao Hanzhi were eating from the other half of the red pot.
Lian Yin looked at Gao Hanzhi, and then at Xu Lin. He actually had something to say to Xu Lin today, but he didn’t want to insert Gao Hanzhi in the middle, so Lian Yin didn’t know whether to say it or not.
Xu Lin was very keen, and when he saw Lian Yin’s eyes, he said: “What do you want to say, say it, he doesn’t talk much, don’t worry about him.”
Then Xu Lin suddenly waved his left hand, which had been under the table, impatiently. He roared, “Aren’t you being bothersome, still pulling while eating?”
Being yelled at, Gao Hanzhi obediently put his right hand on the table, and Lian Yin noticed that this person was holding chopsticks with his left hand this entire time, while the other hand under the table, was doing something else.
Lian Yin was stunned.
Xu Lin turned to Lian Yin and asked, “What do you want to say?”
“Oh!” Lian Yin returned to his senses and said a little embarrassedly, “Didn’t you ask me once before, if I have someone I like?”
“Yes.” Xu Lin said with certainty, he shook his chopsticks, “Not only that, but you were also distressed. Come on, tell brother what troubles you have encountered, and brother will help you solve it.”
“It’s not really trouble. It’s just that something happened to me during this time, so I moved to his house.” Lian Yin said.
Xu Lin didn’t focus on the last half of the sentence, but asked with concern: “What happened to you?”
Lian Yin quickly explained: “It’s resolved, you don’t have to worry.”
“That’s good.” Xu Lin breathed a sigh of relief. The conversation changed, “But you didn’t ask me to help you find a way when something went wrong? Is it because someone took responsibility for you? That man?”
He had to say that Xu Lin was really smart and sharp. Lian Yin nodded in agreement and then Xu Lin had a joking face and let him continue.
Lian Yin continued: “I stayed at his house for a while. Now that the matter is settled, there is no more reason to stay at his, so I have to move out.”
“But you don’t want to move out, you still want to stay at someone’s house.” Xu Lin said with a smile, with an I understand expression.
Lian Yin glared at him and retorted: “Do you know how to speak properly? It’s not that I want to stay at his house, it’s just… if you like someone, don’t you want to be with him all the time?”
Looking up, after thinking for a moment, he replied, “I don’t know, I’ve never liked anyone.”
After he finished speaking, he held his forehead helplessly, but Gao Hanzhi suddenly stood up and said, “I’ll go to the toilet.”
Gao Hanzhi left, and now Lian Yin can relax a little bit. He tapped Xu Lin’s head with the end of his chopsticks, and scolded: “Can you help me solve my problems?”
Xu Lin raised his hand and surrendered: “Okay, okay, I understand your mood, you want to be with someone. So, what are you worrying about?”
Lian Yin’s eyes widened: “Of course I’m worrying! How can I just stay with him!”
“Confess! “Xu Lin shouted.
Lian Yin was suddenly speechless.
“Confess, tell him that you like him and want to stay with him. You two can live together directly, be all lovey dovey, fermented and intertwined, have happy sex, then won’t it be solved?” Xu Lin said.
Lian Yin remained silent.
Seeing that Lian Yin was choked up by his own words, Xu Lin asked, “Why? He doesn’t like you?”
Lian Yin replied hesitantly, “He should, right? I don’t know.”
“Why don’t you know ? He let you live in his house and he helped you out of trouble. You’re also not ugly. Generally, when a bent one sees you, he’ll wash himself clean and send himself to your door. Yet hee still doesn’t like you? Is he unable to do it or straight?” Xu Lin asked.
Lian Yin shook his head and said, “I don’t know if he helped me out of a sense of responsibility or out of love. He used to be my teacher.”
Xu Lin looked at Lian Yin, silent for a moment, then raised his drink cup and drank it all in one go .
“Make it clear, you can’t guess here. After explaining it to him, he will make his own decision.”
“I’ll think about it.” Lian Yin clenched his chopsticks tightly.
Seeing his hesitant appearance, Xu Lin made a “tch”, put down the cup, and said impatiently, “If you really can’t do it, then seduce him a few times. Do it a few times and then there will be love.”
Just after saying this, Gao Hanzhi came back from the bathroom, walked behind Xu Lin, turned around and left after hearing that.
Seeing him leave, Lian Yin quickly reminded Xu Lin: “Hey, your friend seems to be angry and just left.”
“What?” Xu Lin looked back and saw Gao Hanzhi walking out of the door of the hot pot restaurant righteously. He immediately got up and went chasing after him. He only had time to say to Lian Yin, “You pay first, I’ll pay you back next time!”
Xu Lin hurriedly left. The meal was almost finished, and Lian Yin was ready to go home after paying the bill.
At this time, Lang Zhuoyu was sitting behind the desk at home, calling Guan Shi.
The two had just decided on some future work. Guan Shi said goodbye and wanted to hang up, but was stopped by Lang Zhuoyu.
“Boss, do you have any other orders?”
Lang Zhuoyu was silent for a moment, then trying to express something, he said seriously: “You are only in your twenties, about the same age as Lian Yin, so I want to ask you for your thoughts. How should I tell Lian Yin to have him continue to live in my house and not go back to that dilapidated rental house?”
“Ah?” Guan Shi’s voice was full of surprise, “Wait… Boss, what you said is a lot, let me digest it.”
“You mean, Lian Yin lives in your house now?”
“I didn’t tell you?” Lang Zhuoyu asked.
“No!” Guan Shi was very stimulated, “Why would he stay at your house? Because of his father’s business? I thought he was staying at the hotel. No, why would you want him to stay in your house? Doesn’t he have a house? Doesn’t your house only have one bedroom? Where does he sleep?”
“Why do you have so many questions?” Lang Zhuoyu frowned, “You answer my question directly.”
Guan Shi wanted to cry but had no tears. He was an assistant, how can he help his boss to deal with emotional problems? It must be because he flattered his boss too much and now had a good relationship with the boss, which caused his boss to throw his personal affairs to himself.
Ah, it’s all my fault for my excellent interpersonal skills.
As early as in Nancheng, Guan Shi guessed that Lian Yin had bad intentions towards Lang Zhuoyu. At that time, he still felt a little pity for Lian Yin, because his own boss never showed any tendency to bend. Yet, Lian Yin was about to enter the room and the boss was willing to let him enter the room!
After Guan Shi sighed in his heart, he thoughtfully replied: “Don’t be too direct, find some reason why he can’t refuse. If you can’t find a reason, then you can just say it directly, but there is a problem. Why do you two need to live together, usually only family members or couples live together.”
After Guan Shi finished speaking, Lang Zhuoyu fell into a long silence.
“…Okay, I see, thank you.”
Hanging up the phone, Guan Shi sighed. Lian Yin, I helped you a lot this time, you have to treat me to a good meal.
“Ahchoo!” Lian Yin sneezed while walking on the greenway of the community.
He rubbed his sore and itchy nose and said, “Who is talking bad about me?”
The sky was getting darker, and the street lights in the community were not very bright.
Lian Yin was walking on the road with his bag on his back, sighing in his heart. Xu Lin’s ideas were really unreliable.
While sighing, Lian Yin suddenly heard a faint cry.
This cry came from the grass on the side of the road, soft, a little coquettish, very pitiful.
After searching for it, he had to step on the grass gently and look behind the bush. A raccoon-flower cat was curled up in the grass, calling and licking its injured front paws.
The kitten noticed Lian Yin’s gaze, raised his head, stared at him with round eyes, and then softly called out, “Meow.”
No one can resist the coquettish meow of a kitten, let alone a shivering and injured stray kitten. Lian Yin’s heart melted at that moment.
But he had nothing on him, and he was helpless if he wanted to feed him. He had never kept a pet, so he didn’t know how to deal with the wound.
He can only go home and ask Lang Zhuoyu, then find something to eat for the kitten. After making the decision, Lian Yin said softly to the kitten: “Wait here for me for a while, don’t leave, I’ll be right back.”
It was like coaxing a child.
Then he hurried back home.
Lang Zhuoyu came out to drink water, and happened to see Lian Yin, who opened the door, still gasping for breath.
“Why are you so anxious?” Lang Zhuoyu asked.
Lian Yin was in a hurry to save the kitten. He kicked off his shoes twice, and walked into the room wearing only socks. He put down the bag and said to Lang Zhuoyu: “Teacher Lang, I found a cat.”
