“Hard to chase?”
Qin Sheng said without hesitation, “Even it will be a long journey, and what are ahead of us is the mountain of knives and the sea of fire, and the abyss, I will not turn back and will keep going. No matter what the result is, at least there will be no regrets in life.”
For Qin Sheng, life was like this. You could repent it, but you couldn’t regret it.
“A pessimistic optimist?” Lin Su, who felt a little cold, said holding her arms. She was not disgusted with Qin Sheng. On the contrary, she liked him. The two had been walked through many roads. And there were many stories when they were together. But in the case of love and marriage, Lin Su did not want to make do with somebody. And she did not want to refuse Qin Sheng, so she would give him a chance.
Qin Sheng laughed at himself and said, “Can I have you? I have to try.”
“Well, since you said so, at least let me know you first.” Lin Su said with interest. She had been resisting the marriage contract arranged by her family. Maybe she was waiting for the man she liked.
Qin Sheng was silent. He was thinking about how to introduce himself. After all, they did not ask anything about each other, and it seemed that they had reached a tacit agreement.
“I grew up in Xi’an with my grandfather. I graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai. I had a relationship once. My grandfather died before graduation. And I started my two-year travel. I returned to Shanghai in late October. Now I am working at a private club as a deputy manager. As for the rest, you will gradually understand later.” Qin Sheng tried to summarize his first half of life in the simplest language.
Lin Su stepped on the grid of the floor and walked forward. “You were born in an ordinary family, and your work is normal. Your appearance is so-so, and education background is okay. Compared with other people, there is no advantage at all. Do you know how your rivals in love are like?”
“In this worldly and flashy society, if love and marriage can completely be built according to the models that combined by what you have said, then humans didn’t need love at all. As for my rivals, I must first praise their taste. Secondly, it means that you are attractive. In the end, the achievement of a general cost many lives. I will carry on the spirit of fighting and fighting, and fighting on despite repeated setbacks. And strive to complete the long March. I hope that I am not the cannon fodder of others.” Qin Sheng said with enthusiasm. At least his momentum was no problem. It sounded like he had strong wills and great determination to succeed.
Lin Su was teased again by Qin Sheng’s serious and earnest appearance. The words she said just for teasing Qin Sheng. She hoped that her love or marriage was for love, not reality. So she would resist what happened this moment. Now, although the parents of both sides had not talked about it yet and Grandma wanted to have her opinion, Lin Su knew that unless she could find a boyfriend, whose family was better than Yan Chaozong’s family, there would be no room for discussion.
“Courage is good.” Lin Su gave three words to evaluate. But she was not a little girl who was not deeply involved in the world. Any man who did not get what he wanted, would say something like that. Maybe he would give up after suffering from the continuous setback. Many pursuers in the past were ended like this.
Qin Sheng stared at Lin Su, and said with a look of interest. “We are old friends after all. Can you give me some information and let me jump the queue?”
“What do you want to know?” Lin Su asked in a bad manner.
Qin Sheng said casually “Something like your hobby.”
“Workaholics, like being quiet. Love to read and listen to music, and occasionally go out alone. Run in every morning. I will date a few friends to play tennis or go shopping on weekends. And I like single white rose the most.” Lin Su said with politeness.
Qin Sheng was quite satisfied. He said with the smile “I know. Let’s go to have hot pot.”
After talking for so long, Qin Sheng felt that it was appropriate to stop, otherwise, Lin Su might be somewhat resentful.
“No, it’s too late. I don’t eat anything at night on weekdays.” Lin Su refused politely.
Qin Sheng frowned slightly. He was a little awkward. He started off on the wrong foot.
“Tomorrow will be okay. I will get off work early. You choose a place. You owe me a hot pot, I will certainly let you pay the bill.” Lin Su saw Qin Sheng’s face, said with an expression that between smiling and not smiling.
It was really considered big ups and downs. Qin Sheng smiled and said, “Okay, I listen to you. Can I send you back by bus?”
“You know this?” Lin Su squinted and wondered.
Qin Sheng laughed and said, “Don’t forget, my college roommate used to chase you.”
“I really want to know who that is.” Lin Su was curious.
Qin Sheng deliberately kept her guessing. “When you see the guy, you will know it.”
Lin Su knew where to take the bus. She took Qin Sheng to the bus stop sign and did not refuse Qin Sheng sending her back. So Qin Sheng was in the lead of many competitors. When a woman would let a man send her back, it meant that she was very fond of this man. If she talked at the doorstep and asked whether the man wanted to go to her home for a while and had some drinks, they were close to the relationship.
However, when Qin Sheng sent Lin Su to the door of the community, he did not wait until the invitation. Obviously, this was impossible. When he left, Qin Sheng asked Lin Su, still the previous mobile phone number?
Lin Su smiled back and said, just tried it.
After Lin Su disappeared completely, Qin Sheng regained his eyes and felt very comfortable. They said that love was a condiment of life. Life without love would be uninteresting. Qin Sheng did not know whether he could accept this love. But he would work hard. He would never miss the right one once he met her.
He called Xia Ding and told him that he was at the door of the central apartment of Lujiazui, asked him to come and pick him up. Xia Ding directly shouted “Damn” and ran to him.
After seeing Qin Sheng, Xia Ding was anxious to ask, “Boss, what is the situation. Don’t tell me that you have taken my goddess?”
Qin Sheng stared at Xia Ding and said. “What are you talking about? I just sent her home.”
“Damn, I can’t accept it! I have been chasing her for so long, but the goddess does not even give me a chance. You can actually send the goddess home. Tell me directly, have you ever had any unknown story?” Xia Ding’s heart was bleeding. He was really envious and hateful.
Qin Sheng shrugged and said, “You will know it later.”
“Well, do you know there are flower shops near Lujiazui? What is the earliest opening time?” Qin Sheng suddenly thought of one thing, and then asked.
Xia Ding did not understand, “Why do you ask about this? You want to give flowers to the goddess? Is it too vulgar? Want me to teach you a few tricks. I have many ideas.”
“No bullshit. Tell me the answer first. Qin Sheng said with anger.
So Xia Ding thought about it for a while and made a few phone calls. He particularly asked the flower shops near the Poly Plaza. Finally, he found a flower shop that opened at 7:30 every morning, not far from Poly Plaza, just a few minutes’ walk.
After finishing these things, it was already very late. Qin Sheng let Xia Ding send him back. On this road, Qin Sheng was singing songs. Since he returned to Shanghai, he rarely had such a good mood. Xia Ding next to him was frustrated. It seemed that his beloved thing was taken away by others. But he was positive. So he did not think too much.
When they returned to Shilin Huayuan, Chang Baji and Hao Lei had already come back. Chang Baji just took a shower and was writing at the table. Hao Lei was watching TV.
“Chang, you are very busy recently. I can’t see you every day. Are you going out for girls?” Qin Sheng laughed and teased.
Chang Baji put down the things in his hands and looked up at Qin Sheng. “People are in high spirits when involved in happy events. You are a deputy manager now. I can feel you are really happy.”
“The deputy manager is also working for you. You are our vice-general manager. I am just a small character.” Qin Sheng said happily. Chang was the vice president of Shangshan Ruoshui, he naturally knew this.
Chang Baji said disapprovingly, “Who is going to work for whom, it is hard to say.”
Qin Sheng no longer joked with Chang Baji. He knew that he was very busy recently. The whole security department had been reorganized by him. And it had been totally different now. It would have a new look in the future.
When he walked to the living room, Qin Sheng poured a glass of water and just prepared to talk to Hao Lei. When asked about Han Bing, Hao Lei took the initiative to say “Qin Sheng, Su Qin found me today.”
Hearing these words, Qin Sheng’s face changed slightly and put down the glass. “What does she want from you?”
“We are old friends after all. She invited me to have a meal. I don’t know how she knows that I am in Shanghai. And she knows that I am still with you. We talked about you most of the time. I think Su Qin is still in love with you.” Hao Lei sighed and said. It had been many years when he met Su Qin again. They had not seen each other for a very long time. When thinking of the memories of high school, Hao Lei was a little bit sad. Qin Sheng and Su Qin were wonderful lovers that were envied by everyone. As time passed, now they were already different from each other. No matter Qin Sheng or Su Qin, they had changed too much.
Qin Sheng did not know how to answer and fell into silence.
“Is it possible for you to get back together? Su Qin is really good, don’t miss it.” Hao Lei said kindly.
Qin Sheng shook his head and said, “Stop talking about this. I have to have a bath first.”
Hao Lei stopped and did not continue to ask. Maybe Qin Sheng was escaping.
In the morning, Qin Sheng got up earlier than before. After eating breakfast downstairs, he went straight to Lujiazui and found the flower shop that Xia Ding said yesterday. This flower shop was quite big. And you could find all kinds of flowers inside. It was the freshest every day.
“Sir, what flower do you want to buy?” the waitress at the flower shop asked politely.
Qin Sheng asked, “Is there a white rose?”
“Yes.” The pretty-good-looking waitress nodded, then took Qin Sheng to the white rose and asked again, “You must prepare for your girlfriend, I don’t know how many bunches you want, we have…”
“One.” Qin Sheng did not wait for the waitress to finish and replied directly.
The waitress was slightly disappointed, but she still helped Qin Sheng choose one politely. Qin Sheng asked if there was a vase. The waiter brought Qin Sheng to the vase place. There were dozens of vases of different sizes. After repeatedly selected, finally, he selected the simplest round edge glass vase.
After paying the bills, Qin Sheng went straight to Lin Su’s company that located in Poly Plaza. It was just after 8:30, and it seemed that someone had already gone to work. Last night, he asked Xia Ding about the floor and company name.
When he found Lin Su’s company, luckily the door of her company had been opened. When Qin Sheng wanted to go inside, he was stopped by the receptionist and asked, “Who are you looking for?”
Qin Sheng had already thought about the countermeasures and said, “Hello, I am the delivery man of the Yanhua Flower Shop. This is the flower that Miss Lin has ordered. Where is the office of Miss Lin?”
The beautiful woman at the front desk frowned slightly. It seemed that she did not hear Miss Lin or the secretary said this. Qin Sheng saw she was a bit hesitated, He said. “You can help me put this flower at Miss Lin’s desk. She will know it when she comes.”
Qin Sheng put a vase with white rose inside on the front desk, and squatted slightly. “Thank you, I have to send other flowers. I have to go first.”
After saying that, Qin Sheng did not give the opportunity for the receptionist to ask, and left directly.
The beauty at the front desk was thoughtful and didn’t know what to do. Finally, the vase was placed on the desk of Miss Lin. When Lin asked her to tell the truth, she would tell the truth. If she did not ask, it would indeed be Miss Lin who ordered it.
After finishing this thing, Qin Sheng came out from Poly Plaza and was only ready to go to work in Shangshan Ruoshui.
At nine o’clock, Lin Su appeared in the company on time. When she walked into the office, she was attracted by the white rose on the table subconsciously. Lin Su had some doubts, so he called the secretary and asked, “Who put the flower here?”
“The receptionist said that it was sent by a guy from a flower shop. He said that you have ordered it.” the secretary explained. She thought, “Wouldn’t it be ordered by Miss Lin?”
Lin Su frowned slightly. She let the secretary called the receptionist and asked what the guy looked like, and she instantly understood what was going on.
She couldn’t help but laugh, “This Qin Sheng.”
