    Chapter 14 Long time no see

    The two of them went home and slept until they woke up in the middle of the afternoon. Lu Yingji was concerned about the salary issue, so he got up and took his son to the supermarket. When he saw him, his colleagues secretly winked at him.

    Director Li came forward immediately when he got the news, and reluctantly pulled Lu Ying in the corner and muttered: "I told Manager Zhang anyway, but I didn't let go, and I don't understand why she is targeting you. Why don't I take you to her, and apologize to her? How can I get along with money?"

    Lu Ying shook his head directly: "It's impossible to apologize."

    "Don't be stubborn, Xiao Lu!"

    "I'm not stubborn."

    "There will be personnel transfers in the coming year, and she may be transferred away. Would you like to endure it first?"

    Lu Ying didn't want to wait. The personnel transfer was a matter of a few days. If it dragged on for half a year, who would still remember his poor salary. Applying for labor arbitration is also very tricky, unless he has to, he just wants to cut through the mess and get the money.

    "I'll figure it out myself."

    It happened that Brother Yang called to invite him to a dinner party. Lu Ying's bad mood was swept away, and she left the mall humming a pleasant tune. Before he went to take a bath today, he quit his part-time job delivering food. Brother Yang had to be full-time. After he made up his mind, he would seriously learn the craft from Brother Yang.

    Yang Sigu's house was even more lively today. Besides their old friends, Doctor Hu was also here!

    As soon as he entered the door and bumped into Doctor Hu, Lu Ying almost braked and exited, stalking his neck to say hello: "Hello, Doctor Hu!"

    Doctor Hu raised his head, glanced at him condescendingly, and hummed from his nose.

    Lu Ying breathed a sigh of relief.

    "What, rhinitis is committed?" Ji Xiaofeng raised her hand and twisted Doctor Hu's tall nose, so that Doctor Hu stood up and shouted: "No big or small!"

    "I'm going out of my house with me, and I'm so angry, I want to fight and say it outright!" Ji Xiaofeng was not afraid, she was just straight.

    "Lu Ying, come and serve the dishes." Liu Dichuan hurriedly dragged Lu Ying away.

    Entering the kitchen, Liu Dichuan exhaled.

    "These two bad tempers are a natural match."

    Brother Yang laughed while cooking: "As long as you don't provoke Xiaoji, Dr. Hu can talk about everything. You are just too used to Ji Xiaofeng. Let's talk about Lu Ying, he elopes with you to Guanlan City for a whole year. If you don't come back, can you blame Doctor Hu for not hating you? Ji Xiaofeng, he beat and scolded him, turned his head and got stuck again, you, an outsider, can only make a punching bag."

    Lu Ying waved his hand wrongly, and hurriedly defended: "Brother Yang, don't talk nonsense, we are not running away! It was Brother Ji who saw that I had never been out, so he took me to see some other places. We went to work to earn money and eat.


    , play, and nothing else. You and Ji Ge are my brothers! "

    Liu Dichuan stroked Lu Ying's soft hair: "Brother Yang is teasing you."

    "Jizizi just sees that you are honest and easy to send." Yang Sigu shook his head and laughed: "I want to blame your grandfather Lu for always treating you like a baby and not teaching you anything. As a result, others run away after being coaxed, and Bai Chang is so old."

    Lu Ying heard the words even more anxiously, "Grandpa Lu is all for my good."

    "He's stubborn and old-fashioned, how can he know that the outside world has already changed." Yang Sigu snorted coldly.

    Liu Dichuan changed the subject: "Xiao Lu, why do you suddenly want to resign early?"

    "I want to learn the craft seriously, Brother Yang gave me the opportunity, I have to take it well."

    "You must be fine." Liu Dichuan smiled, and Yang Sigu, a fake and gentle man, suddenly sent a kind message to teach Lu Ying's son, he must have no intentions. But it is indeed a good opportunity for Lu Ying. Although Yang Sigu does not have the rare skill of saving lives and helping wounds like Doctor Hu, in human society, what he is proficient in are really good guys who can eat. What kind of pastry baking is just one of Yang Sigu's specialties, and it's just his hobby and specialty. On such a long item, many people are sought after. Besides, learning to cook is very suitable for Lu Ying, after all, he likes to eat, and he can eat very well.

    There is a saying that interest is the best teacher.

    In the early morning, the snow in the town slowly melted under the warm sun. Lu Ying went straight to the mall after sending the child off. He was nearly 40 minutes earlier than everyone's work time. When he got there, Lu Ying didn't go anywhere, just squatted in the garage. Elevator entrance.

    When Manager Zhang got out of the car at work, Lu Ying suddenly appeared in front of her: "Why did you deduct my salary? Just because I don't want to sleep with you?"

    Manager Zhang was startled at first, but when he looked up, he saw his face. It was probably due to the cold wind blowing from his bicycle. Now his cheeks were flushed, his angry mouth was slightly raised, his lips were red and his teeth were white.

    All the anger disappeared in an instant, Manager Zhang looked around his head and found that he was in a blind spot of surveillance, smiling kindly: "It seems that you know what I mean, I thought that you were too stupid to understand my intentions by rejecting me again and again. "

    "Aren't you afraid your husband will know?" Lu Ying asked.

    Manager Zhang sneered: "So what if he knows, he likes young and beautiful girls, I like young and good-looking boys, everyone depends on their abilities. As far as I know, you have no wife and no elders, so what is there to be afraid of when a bachelor comes out to play. As long as you Make me happy, I will make you a supervisor in minutes, and you can see your performance when buying a car or a house."

    Seeing her determination to win, Lu Ying felt sick to her stomach.

    Manager Zhang got closer and stared at Lu Ying with a smile: "I'm finally enlightened now? Make an appointment for dinner. How about tonight?"

    After retreating, Lu Ying snorted, and said with disgust on his face: "the ghost will eat with you, don't try to scare me to death at night!"

    Save the phone recording, turn around and walk away.

    The half-way salary for his ride home was paid, and he even gave him an extra month.

    Lu Ying breathed a sigh of relief, the tricks he learned from Brother Ji didn't expect to be really effective.

    Not far from Caifeng City Government, there is a secluded street with antique charm and elegant charm. Old buildings stand on both sides. Every brick and tile is covered with the smell of history. The road is not wide, and it is not lively. There are only three or two pedestrians walking by slowly, and occasionally the melodious music from the old house can be heard.

    A black car parked far away at the intersection of the old street. Qin Zhuopu and his assistant got off the car one after another. After the sun went down in the evening, the night came early with cold rain.

    Although it is not far apart, Caifeng City this year is much colder than Guanlan City.

    Qin Zhuopu took the umbrella handed over by his assistant, and stood at the intersection of the street and looked at the old street. It was dark, and the red light of a few lanterns flickered sporadically, and the ancient rocks on the eaves were faintly visible. His teeth were chattering, and Boss Qin glanced at him with a light glance, and the assistant was so frightened that he hurriedly closed his mouth. It's not that he is timid, this place looks like you can directly shoot ghost movies!

    It was not the first time for Qin Zhuopu to come here. He held an umbrella to show his assistant the way, and cleverly avoided a few puddles. In the end, Shi Shiran stopped in front of a large open old mansion, and a 'sink' on the swinging red lanterns. 'Character.

    The Shen family is the leader of the catering industry in Caifeng City, and even in the entire province. It is also one of the few old-fashioned catering houses left in China. It is a century-old brand that has been passed down from generation to generation. Every time Qin Zhuopu comes to Caifeng City, if he has time, he will definitely miss it. Come here for a meal.

    He used to come here, and the chefs were all the current descendants of the Shen family, the boss of the Shen family. And tonight, might be able to eat the dinner that the retired old man of the Shen family cooked by himself.

    Thinking of this, felt a little more hopeful.

    "My nephew, you are here!"

    "Zhou Pu, Mom, let me introduce the elders to you..."

    As soon as Qin Zhuopu entered, he was enthusiastically held by a middle-aged man. Afterwards, several men and women, all of them were his mother's same generation, whether they knew each other or not, after Mrs. Qin's introduction, Qin Zhuopu politely greeted some time.

    After Mrs. Qin introduced the last uncle, Qin Zhuopu found the only awkward young man among the middle-aged and elderly people in the room. He was stunned for a moment, and then heard his mother take a few steps forward to hold the young man's hand, and said very affectionately: " Zoupu, do you remember Yurong? You are Auntie Su's son. Auntie Su is an old classmate and old friend I told you before. Unfortunately, Auntie Su's family immigrated to Cairo after 20 years. Goodbye Fengcheng. I just found out that you are alumni in the United States just after chatting with Yourong. What a coincidence."

    "It's all fate, Senior Qin, are you right?" Yu Yourong wore a well-cut light-colored casual suit, which made him handsome, clean and well-behaved. He is obviously a man in his thirties, but it is not wrong to say that he is a college student. It's no wonder that this appearance can please the elders.

    Qin Zhuopu smiled lightly: "Well."

    Yu Yourong stepped forward and stretched out his right hand: "Long time no see, are you okay?"

    Qin Zhuopu politely gave his right hand, "Thank you for your concern." After speaking, he pulled out his hand, and the palm of his hand was slightly scratched, and it was as uncomfortable as sticking to chewing gum: "I'll go to the bathroom."

    "Yun Lan, your son is really a talent. I only knew that he had outstanding abilities before, but I never imagined that his appearance would inherit all the advantages of the two of you. If he goes to make movies, those handsome stars will be incomparable. I used to like to brag about our family. Rong Rong, I can't blow today." Ms. Su, who was well-dressed and well-dressed, held Mrs. Qin's arm lovingly, laughing and blowing rainbow farts. The rest of the people present also echoed, and all the elders praised the only two young people several times.

    Yu Yourong sat next to her and did not interrupt randomly, but only occasionally interrupted Mrs. Qin's words in a funny way. Not long after, Mrs. Qin smiled and pulled Yu Yourong to sit beside her, and chatted with him kindly.

    She felt that it was fate to meet a friend's family at this stage, and she really wanted to do whatever she wanted. No, just thought that son should get off the list, and Yu Yourong appeared.

    When Qin Zhuopu returned to the banquet, he was stunned to see someone sitting next to his mother. He was about to take a seat at will, but Auntie Su, whom he had just met, had already waved: "Zhoupu, can I call you Zhuopu? Come and sit here, auntie. "

    "I'm a junior, how can I take the seat." Qin Zhuopu stabilized at the start.

    But Mrs. Qin beckoned again: "Come here and sit next to Yourong, you two young people are at the table, you are more comfortable sitting together."

    Qin Zhuopu shook his head: "I want to eat."

    "Have you been hungry for another day? Hurry up and drink some hot soup to warm your stomach first." Mrs. Qin frowned, her son's health was the most important thing, and nothing else was in a hurry. She got up and poured a bowl of soup for her son herself, before giving up after ranting.

    During the banquet, Mrs. Qin and Aunt Su brought the topic to the two young people several times, but Qin Zhuopu deftly avoided them, and the table was finished after the good dishes were eaten. Qin Zhuopu helped his mother to go out, and Mrs. Qin's eyes were full of deep reluctance for the Su family's mother and son.

    Qin Zhuopu urged his mother to get into the car, and he followed up. Yu Yourong suddenly stepped forward and handed Qin Zhuopu an invitation from the car window: "Senior, I have returned to China this time to hold an art exhibition in Caifeng City. Feel free to give pointers.”

    After taking the invitation, Qin Zhuopu did not change his expression: "It depends on the situation."

    "I hope the senior can appreciate your face. Auntie, I'm really happy to meet an elder like you when I return to China. I'll definitely make afternoon tea with my auntie when I have time."


    When the car started, Mrs. Qin immediately looked at her son with a smile: "Zhou Pu, what do you think of being handsome?"

    Qin Zhuopu sneered and shook his head: "Not much."

    Mrs. Qin patted him: "Look at the way you look down on people. Although Yourong is not as good as you in career, he is excellent in all aspects. He is three years younger than you, graduated from the same prestigious school as you, and has nothing to say about his looks and experience. It's also a coincidence. , Your Aunt Su, this son is the same as you and likes the same sex. Aunt Su and her husband are divorced, and this time she returns to China and plans to settle down for a long time. She is also open-minded and supports her son's choice wholeheartedly. "

    "So today is a blind date for the two of us?"

    "Mom is for your own good..."

    "You should at least tell me in advance. I said a few years ago, don't meddle in my personal affairs in private. I didn't come to Caifeng City to accompany you."

    Qin Zhuopu didn't feel angry or offended, but he was more and more disappointed with his mother.

    "Then why did you suddenly come to Caifeng City? I asked you to see the doctor before and refused."

    "As you wish, I'll get off the list."

    There is also a cheap son attached.
