The more I listened, the more curious I became, what kind of boss would such a smart and elegant lady serve? How charismatic does it take to make her surrender?
Violet suddenly looked in our direction, she stretched out her hand and made a gesture of respectful invitation, "As I told you before, my family only runs all the business for my boss. Tonight, allow me to introduce my Boss Regulus."
Everyone looked at us, to be precise, they all looked at Wu Julan following Violet's gaze. If I realized something, but I couldn't believe it, I looked around blankly, trying to find another person, which proved that I had misunderstood. However, there was no one else around, only Wu Julan.
What he said this afternoon suddenly came to my ears, "My people saved me", he was not alone a hundred years ago, and someone followed him and protected him. Since the founding of the United States, except for a civil war between the North and the South, the political situation has been stable. As long as there are reliable and reliable agents, the industry of that year has continued to be very normal.
Wu Julan squeezed my hand soothingly, let go of me, and walked towards Violet.
Violet stepped aside and applauded vigorously, and in an instant, the entire banquet hall burst into thunderous applause. Violet and several old people standing in front were so excited with tears in their eyes that they seemed to be witnessing an incredible miracle.
Wu Julan just stood there indifferently, with a stern face without any expression, like a king who has everything and sees everything, no matter what happens, it is taken for granted.
The applause gradually stopped, and Wu Julan said to Violet and the old people, "Goodevening, Myfriends, I'mback!"
They applauded excitedly again, and it could be seen that, like Ms. Violet, they not only had outstanding personal charm, but also outstanding financial resources and social status. There was thunderous applause.
The only people who were not excited were me, Jiang Yisheng, Zhou Buwen and Zhou Buyan.
Zhou Buwen and Zhou Buyan were staring at me with the most incredible eyes, a ghostly expression like "I saw someone stepping on shit, but I didn't expect it to be a gold mine".
In fact, my heart is the same as theirs, and it feels really bad to watch the person I support turn into someone I can't support even if I sell it. Moreover, I always thought that I was Wu Julan's only one in this world, but now, I found that I am at most a fraction, or the weakest fraction, which makes me feel very incompetent. sense of security.
The applause stopped, and the old guys who seemed to be of great social status stepped forward to greet Wu Julan one by one. They either brought their sons, grandsons, or their daughters and granddaughters. Their ancestors should have all immigrated to the United States from Europe. Although their homeland has left early, their appearance and language still bear the shadow of their homeland. Hispanic, German, Italian, French... each of them uses The languages are different, and Wu Julan also spoke to them in the languages of different countries, with perfect etiquette in every move.
Wu Julan, surrounded by the crowd, made me feel a little strange. Although I always knew that he was so poor that he didn't even have shoes, he did not change his arrogance and fuss, but now I have witnessed him like a returning king, accepting the cheers of the crowd indifferently. And respect, but it is a different feeling. I didn't understand what he said, I didn't understand what he did, and I didn't know the people around him at all... He seemed very distant and unfamiliar. That full moon night, even if he revealed his true identity and told me that he was not human, I didn't feel that way, but now I feel that we are completely two worlds.
I said softly, "He really does resemble his name, a prince!"
Wu Liangliang stared at Wu Julan and said without hesitation, "It's not very similar, Regulus is a prince!"
I was stunned for a moment, and couldn't help thinking, if he is a prince, then what am I? Could it be Cinderella before midnight, although she put on a beautiful princess dress and dressed like a princess, but after all, she had to take off her dress and return to her original shape?
Jiang Yisheng bumped me with his elbow, and at his signal, I saw Zhou Buwen and Zhou Buyan quietly retreating out of the crowd and quietly walking towards the door. Staring at their backs, I even had the feeling that I wanted to run away.
"Thank you for coming..." Wu Julan's voice suddenly sounded, and it turned out to be in Chinese.
Both Zhou Buwen and Zhou Buyan subconsciously stopped and turned around to look. I also turned around and looked at Wu Julan strangely.
Wu Julan was staring at me sharply, and his eyes collided, I couldn't help feeling guilty, he saw through my thoughts! With a little anger in his eyes, he seemed to say: Do you dare to escape? you try!
Wu Julan stared at me and said slowly in Chinese, "I invite you tonight not only to meet you, but more importantly, to invite you to witness what I am about to do."
He walked through the crowd and walked towards me, and as he moved, all eyes were on me and him.
Since I was a child, I was not the focus of the crowd, nor was I used to being the focus of the crowd, and I was nervous and wanted to step back. Wu Julan bent her knees and knelt down in front of me on one leg, holding a huge blue diamond ring in her hand, "Xiaoluo, will you marry me?"
As if I heard the immobilization spell, I was immediately pinned to the ground and asked in shock, "What did you say?"
Fortunately, it wasn't just me who was frightened. There were also exclamations from the crowd, covering up my extremely rude question.
Wu Julan stared into my eyes and repeated: "Will you marry me?"
After listening with bated breath, I immediately smiled and snatched the ring from his hand impatiently, "I do! I do!"
Jiang Yisheng coughed desperately, and then I realized that I seemed to be in a hurry. I should have held out my hand with tears in my eyes, and asked Wu Julan to put a ring on me. However, I have already grabbed it in front of everyone, do you want me to give it back to Wu Julan?
I was holding the ring, neither going in nor going back.
Wu Julan's sharp eyes softened, he stood up with a smile, took my hand very naturally, and put the ring on me, as if the ceremony was supposed to be like this. Then he took my ringed hand, bent down, lowered his head, and kissed the back of my hand in a very gentlemanly way.
It was as if an electric current hit my heart from the back of my hand, which made my heart beat faster and blood flow retrograde in an instant. At this moment, I was dizzy and truly realized what happened: Wu Julan, proposed to me! It's a marriage proposal! Proposal! Proposal!
From the beginning of this feeling, I have always been the one who strives to move forward. Wu Julan has always been hesitant. It can even be said that he really wants to refuse, but he can't stand my thick skin, but even my skin The thick guy didn't even dare to think about getting married, but Wu Julan actually proposed to me!
How strange! I am still me, and he is still him, except that there is a stone on my middle finger that symbolizes his promise, but everything has changed! Even if he says things I don't understand, does things I don't understand, and is surrounded by people I don't know, so what? No matter how strange the world is, he will always be by my side! Besides, he would rather let everyone not understand and use Chinese, just so that I could understand.
Wu Julan held my hand, stared at Zhou Buwen and Zhou Buyan, and introduced everyone in Chinese: "My fiancee, Shen Luo!"
Violet understandingly helped him translate into English, but all the old people around her remained silent, seemingly unable to accept the fact.
Wu Julan watched them quietly. Violet was the first to raise his hand and start to applaud, others started to applaud one after another, and finally the whole banquet hall burst into thunderous applause.
Wu Julan smiled slightly and said, "Thank you!"
The music sounded at the right time, and Violet gave Wu Liangliang a wink.
Wu Liangliang smiled and said to Jiang Yisheng, "Take advantage of your beauty!" Before Jiang Yisheng could react, she dragged Jiang Yisheng into the dance floor and started dancing to the music.
Jiang Yisheng's movements were slightly delayed, but he quickly followed her dance steps.
The two of them, the man is suave and the woman is gorgeous, the dance steps are full of tricks, and they are surprisingly harmonious, which attracts many people to start dancing.
The people surrounding Wu Julan gradually dispersed, but Violet and the old people did not leave. She respectfully said to Wu Julan, "Please come with me."
We followed her into a lounge adjoining the banquet hall.
The waiter closed the door, and the music and voices were shut out, and the room seemed very quiet. Wu Julan took me to sit down on the sofa, and everyone else was standing.
Violet said to me kindly: "I've heard Liangliang mention you many times, can I call you Xiaoluo?"
Chinese people are polite, respect the old and love the young. Violet is definitely an elder. I wanted to stand up, but Wu Julan held me down. I could only sit still and said with a smile, "Of course you can."
Violet smiled and introduced me to the old men beside her, everyone would step forward, take my hand, bend down, and kiss the back of my hand lightly. From beginning to end, Wu Julan sat next to me without saying a word. I vaguely feel that this is not only a Western-style etiquette, but more like a ceremony, but Wu Julan did not explain what it represented, and I did not ask, but just kept as calm and dignified as possible, not seeking to be brilliant, just not asking error.
After everyone greeted me, Wu Julan took my hand, stood up, and said, "Shenluo is my chosen life partner. From today on, we will share all the glory that life has given us, and we will also share life. all the hardships it brings."
My heart trembled, and I stared at Wu Julan.
Violet said almost in shock, "Regulus..."
Wu Julan stared at her sharply, Violet struggled for a moment, then bowed his head humbly.
Wu Julan repeated the words just now in English, and in the shock of everyone's eyes, he said, "I hope you will firmly remember what I said."
After speaking, he took me out of the lounge.
Wu Julan glanced at Jiang Yisheng and Wu Liangliang who were dancing, and asked me, "Do you want to play for a while? If you want to dance, I can accompany you."
I shook my head, "I want to go home."
He said that his hearing and sense of smell are far sharper than those of human beings. He definitely doesn't like such noisy and mixed smells, and it just so happens that I don't like it either.
Wu Julan smiled and said softly, "Okay, let's go home!"
After returning to the apartment, when I stood in front of the combination lock and entered the password, I suddenly realized why the password for this apartment was my birthday. It wasn't the password that Wu Liangliang asked someone to change, but the password that Wu Julan set up on purpose.
I asked, "Is this the house you lived in before?"
Wu Julan said: "Yeah! However, every 20 years, they will help me get a new ID card, and they will also renovate the house. Except for the books on the bookshelf, other places basically don't look like they used to be.."
I pushed open the door, bent my knees, made a playful gesture of inviting in, and said to Wu Julan, "Welcome home!"
Wu Julan said: "It will also be your home in the future. I didn't give you a birthday present on your birthday, and this house is considered as a supplementary birthday present for you."
What?sent to me?I was stunned.
Wu Julan took me into the apartment, "Don't think it's very expensive and don't want to accept it. Back then, I just liked that the place was lush with vegetation and sparsely populated, and I bought it at a very low price."
I came back to my senses and said with a hilarious smile, "I don't think it's expensive! Only a fool would think too much money! As long as it's from you, I'll take it no matter how expensive it is! I just can't believe that there is such a good thing in the world,Originally, I was ready to work diligently and work hard to support my family, but I didn't expect you to be such a rich man that you would let me directly upgrade to a rice bug."
