Chapter 31 – Looking At It Live Is Much More Exciting Than Looking At It Through A Screen!
After Shen Yu finished speaking, he walked out of Qin Yuheng’s office aggressively. Qin Yuheng grabbed his arm to stop him and said, “You have to calm down.”
“Calm down?” Shen Yu felt irritated. “After struggling for so long and catching up with Tang Seng in his mission to spread scriptures, I now have to face my 81 trials1!”
“I’m going to go and question Mr. Yu. Why isn’t he letting me act?!”
Qin Yuheng held his arm firmly, “It’s useless to ask him why…”
“Your husband was the one to push it away!”
Shen Yu was petrified on the spot, “Dog man?!”
‘How could he move so fast?!’
“What dog?” Qin Yuheng was puzzled.
Walking out of the office, Shen Yu hid in the fire escape to make a call. As soon as the call connected, he spoke softly, “Rui-ge, are you free at noon today? I’ll treat you to a meal.”
“Wait, I’ll ask the secretary about my itinerary…” Feng SiRui’s voice sounded indifferent, “I’ll call you back later.”
“Okay.” Shen Yu obediently listened as he held the phone, staring at the screen in complaint after he was hung up on.
‘What exactly are you pretending for? Asking your secretary about your itinerary, as if no one knows that you’re busy!’
Feng SiRui, who was in a meeting, seemed a bit excited today. He threw the proposal on the table and said, “This is the end of today’s meeting.”
“Ah?” The staff standing beside the presentation board was unable to react. He was surprised by his boss’s words.
Feng SiRui had already stood up. He then fastened the bottom button of his suit, turned his head and said to his secretary, “Cancel all my arrangements for today.”
“All?” The secretary stood on his left and said, “But Boss Li has already made an appointment with you several times…”
Feng SiRui turned around with a disgruntled expression on his face, “Need me to repeat my words?!”
“No need…” The secretary quickly lowered his head, “I’ll do it right away.”
Feng SiRui strode out of the meeting room quickly, and the people in the room began whispering as he did.
“Whose phone did Mr. Feng answer just now? It’s so important to the point that he pushed all his work away?!”
“Today’s meeting was to discuss a $5 billion project and Mr. Feng left in the middle of it. This is not his usual style!”
“There’s something wrong with Mr. Feng these days, we’d better be careful. If one day the direction of the wind changes, we’ll be kept in the dark…”
Everyone left the conference room, perplexed as to why Feng SiRui was behaving so strangely.
After returning to his office and sitting down, Feng SiRui took a deep breath before calling Shen Yu back. The other side answered almost instantly, “Rui-ge, do you have free time?”
“The secretary checked, there’s time at noon. Where are we meeting?” Feng SiRui’s tone was flat, not revealing his expectations.
“It won’t take too long. An hour should be enough…” Shen Yu spoke cautiously.
Feng SiRui frowned, “I have time all afternoon.”
Shen Yu, “…”
—— ‘Does the dog man have that much free time?’
—— ‘Why doesn’t he just go out to make an appointment with that little white lotus of his?!’
Feng SiRui’s expression darkened, “I’ll ask the secretary to inform you of the location of the hotel…”
“Don’t be late!”
Shen Yu only had time to say ‘okay’ before he was hung up on.
Half an hour later, Shen Yu sat in the city’s most famous Michelin restaurant. Feeling a little embarrassed, he flipped through the menu. The price of each dish made him a bit dazed.
—— ‘My brain was probably trapped by a door that I wanted to invite the dog man to eat!’
—— ‘$2,000 for a piece of steak. Is their family trying to rob money?!’
“Relax, I’ll pay for this meal.” Feng SiRui couldn’t help but remind him.
“No need,” Shen Yu said, raising his eyes and smiling, “I invited you out to eat. I’ll pay.”
“Rui-ge, you’re welcome to order whatever you want…”
—— ‘In order to get resources, I can only pretend to be okay.’
Feng SiRui was in a good mood when he noticed that his face was scrunching up as if he was constipated. He opened the menu and spoke fluently, ordering a few dishes in English.
The waiter next to them quickly memorised their order and went away.
Of course, Shen Yu understood what he was ordering and couldn’t help but feel pain coming from his wallet.
—— ‘Dog man, why do you have the appetite of a lion?!’
—— ‘I asked you to order casually, but you’re actually doing it?!’
Shen Yu closed his menu, smiled and said, “I’m not too hungry, I’ll just have a bowl of soup.”
Feng SiRui saw this and he stretched out his long arms to grab Shen Yu’s menu. But Shen Yu refused to let go, “Rui-ge, what are you doing?!”
“My menu has been taken away, I just want to borrow yours to take a look.” Feng SiRui exerted his strength.
The two froze in mid-air, silently competing.
“Didn’t you finish ordering?” Shen Yu smiled pretentiously.
Feng SiRui raised his eyebrows, “Can’t I add a few more dishes?”
“You can…” Shen Yu didn’t relax his hold on the menu at all, “I’m just afraid that ordering too much would be wasteful…”
“Now our country advocates diligence and thriftiness.”
Feng SiRui narrowed his eyes, “You’re just feeling distressed, right?”
“How is that possible?” Shen Yu kept up his awkward smile.
Suddenly, the waiter came over again and asked in English, “Mr. Feng, the food you ordered has just been credited to your black card. Pardon me, but do you want to take out the wine you saved last time?”
—— ‘It has been credited to your black card?! Why didn’t the dog man say anything earlier?! Made me nervous!’
“Ahem…” Shen Yu coughed twice, feeling a little shy, “Rui-ge, I suddenly feel a little hungry. Can I take a look at the menu?”
Feng SiRui raised his eyebrows and the corners of his mouth curled up into a small arc. He then withdrew his hand from the menu, “Look then.”
Shen Yu ordered a few of the most expensive dishes, believing that the dog man’s money should be squandered. He then returned the menu to the waiter with a smile on his face, “That’s all.”
“Okay, please wait a moment.”
When the waiter left, Feng SiRui asked Shen Yu, “Are you looking for me just for a meal?”
“Rui-ge, I have something to talk to you about my TV drama…”
Before Shen Yu could finish speaking, Feng SiRui’s cold eyes swept over him, “Don’t talk!”
Shen Yu said urgently, “Rui-ge, look at how old I am. It’s not easy to become popular. I’m not doing well in the entertainment industry. If I don’t even accept TV dramas…”
“If you can’t be popular, just come back home to be Mrs. Feng…” Feng SiRui cut him off.
He really doesn’t understand. Why must Shen Yu mix with the entertainment industry?!
Wouldn’t it be nice to just stay at home and be Mrs. Feng with peace of mind?
Shen Yu was taken aback when he heard these words. A resentful expression flashed past his face.
—— ‘Does the dog man want to drive me to death?!’
—— ‘Return home to be Mrs. Feng?! I’m afraid that rather than being Mrs. Feng, I’d be driven crazy!’
—— ‘Your mom2! No way! I’ll have to leave to vent my rage or I’ll lose my cool and overturn the table!’
“Rui-ge, I’ll go to the bathroom…” Shen Yu stood up stiffly and left his seat without waiting for Feng SiRui’s response.
He walked quickly and rushed to the toilet in the blink of an eye.
He had wanted to wash his face with cold water on the sink to calm down, but then he heard a strange sound.
Shen Yu immediately held his breath and concentrated. He hid aside and perked up his ears.
“Ah~ Don’t do this! There are too many people here… Aren’t you afraid of being caught?!”
“Baby, I missed you to death! I don’t care about this!”
Hearing the conversation, Shen Yu covered his mouth as his eyes widened. His eyes were filled with unspeakable excitement.
‘F*ck. Isn’t this the voice of Yang Qiqi and Mr. Yu?!
They’re actually having an affair3?!
‘Such things in real life are indeed much more exciting than on screens!’1
A monk is the epitome of pious devotion. He overcomes 81 tribulations, which can also be seen as metaphors for the trials a person encounters on a spiritual path. He’s saying as if he’d just started his journey and the next thing he has to face is the trials the monk Xuanzang faced.2
cmon we all know it means to bring another person’s mom into the argument. Xinghe said I should add a footnote here3
