Hey, first of all, thanks for reading my lousy translation. To be honest, I’d really like it if you guys corrected the mistakes I made. But please speak nicely and politely. My heart is not strong enough to read your too-harsh comments. Have a nice day.
Suddenly there was applause nearby. A handsome guy played a magic trick, which caused the girls to applaud one after another.
The melodic dance music, the bustling crowd, and the man in front of him who is clearly thin but still trying to act coquettishly. At this moment, Yan Xi suddenly thought, how about promising him.
He was so proud, so good-looking, yet he was lying on her shoulder in full view, like… a coquettish little wolf cub.
Obviously, it was only for a moment, but Yuan Yi felt he had been waiting for a long time. Yan Xi didn’t speak. His heart sank a little bit. The tall man bowed his body and slowly raised his head to look at the woman beside him. She looked at him with a smile. Her eyes seemed to be filled with brilliant stars.
“Being raised by me for a lifetime, aren’t you afraid that others will laugh at you?”
Yuan Yi watched Yan Xi not speak. Yan Xi could see a bit of grievance in his calm expression.
Yan Xi couldn’t help pinching his earlobe and said with a smile: “Okay.”
Yuan Yi suddenly felt he didn’t care about dance and let everyone see it. He hugged Yan Xi into his arms: “Yan Xiaoxi, as a woman, you must mean what you say, don’t lower your reputation as a woman.”
“Okay, for the sake of the overall honor of women, I will keep my word and support you for the rest of my life.”
Someone released the fireworks at the banquet hall, and countless ribbons and gold powder fluttered down from the sky like a colorful rain.
Everyone is cheering and laughing, throwing away the exhaustion and rationality at work, so lively that there is no time to care about others.
“Happy New Year!”
“Next year, I will win five million yuan!”
Yuan Yi lowered his head, put his forehead against Yan Xi, and whispered in her ear: “Yan Xiaoxi, I will fall into your hands for the rest of my life.”
It is said that women are soft fingers and men are rocks, but Yuan Yi, at this moment, every breath, every word, has turned into dense silk threads, wrapping Yan Xi’s heart tightly, the kind of nowhere to rest. His uneasiness settled down in an instant.
It turns out that when you fall in love with someone, even their breath is lovely.
Behind the noisy crowd, Zhao Fei Fei looked at the man and woman embracing in the crowd and drank the wine in the glass in one gulp. Drunk-eyed, she stood up, took a bottle of wine from the champagne tower, and continued to drink.
She suddenly wanted to fall in love.
After the banquet was over, Yan Xi took Yuan Yi to say goodbye to her friends. Seeing the tired look of the two, the friends booed and asked when they would eat the wedding candy.
Yuan Yi smiled and said, “It depends on Xiaoxi.”
“Oh, Teacher Yan, you can’t make Mr. Yuan, wait too long.”
“You don’t need to think about us saving red envelope money, we all want to rub your joy, maybe some handsome guy will take a fancy to us?”
Yan Xi turned her head to look at Yuan Yi, and Yuan Yi happened to be looking at her at the moment, the two looked at each other, and Yan Xi could clearly see the expectation inside.
“Don’t worry, when the date is fixed, none of you should try to save money in red envelopes, whoever makes a fuss will give more money.” Yan Xi pointed at a few people who usually have a good relationship with her, “Remember?I want to pack a big red envelope.”
“I finally know why Teacher Yan is so rich.” The makeup artist said with a smile under the curious eyes of everyone, “Because she is greedy enough!”
Yan Xi dragged Yuan Yi to trot away amidst the laughter of her friends. While running, she told Yuan Yi: “If we stay any longer, they should ask us when we are going to have a baby.”
“Walk slowly, you’re wearing high heels!” Yuan Yi looked at the height of her heels and felt terrified.
“This height is nothing.” Yan Xi opened the locker, took out the contents, and hugged the half-human tall plush doll in her arms. She tilted her head to look at Yuan Yi: “Am I cute?”
Yuan Yi: “Cute, cute, cuter than the national treasure giant panda.”
Putting on her coat, Yuan Yi looked at the time: “Let’s go, let’s go back.”
“Wait for me, I’ll go to the bathroom.” Yan Xi handed the stuffed animal to Yuan Yi, turned around, and walked toward the bathroom.
Not long after Yan Xi left, someone walked up to Yuan Yi. Yuan Yi looked and saw that this woman was not the friend Yan Xi had introduced, so he ignored her.
“Mr. Yuan.” The woman stood there for a while, seeing Yuan Yi ignoring her. She gritted her teeth and stepped forward, “Mr. Yuan, I did something wrong before, please let me go. As long as you… I can promise you anything if you are willing to let me go.”
Yuan Yi turned his head to look at the woman, and after a while, he asked calmly, “May I ask your name?”
The visitor didn’t expect that Yuan Yi didn’t even know who she was and stood there awkwardly, not knowing what to say for a while.
“Just now, I thought a certain figure looked familiar. It turned out to be our actress Wu Xuan, Wu Damei.” Zhao Fei Fei walked in front of Wu Xuan with a half-smile, “Didn’t you say that you are recuperating at home recently? It’s so cold. Why don’t you just stay at home, what kind of annual meeting are you here for?”
It means that she and Wu Xuan are not in the same company, but they have cooperated in the show before and have a little private friendship. But she didn’t expect Wu Xuan to deliberately let the public relations team hype Yuan Yi and his “mysterious girlfriend” in order to compete with her for a movie role, positioning Yuan Yi as a cheating scumbag who betrayed her.
Fortunately, she apologized very neatly that time. Yuan Yi discovered the matter again, knowing she was not the culprit behind the scenes. Otherwise, she would be the one being ridiculed today.
“Zhao Fei Fei.” Wu Xuan’s expression changed, “Didn’t you leave?”
“I’m so sorry, if I leave, how can I watch this good show?” Zhao Fei Fei folded her arms and walked around Wu Xuan, “You didn’t look in the mirror when you said this, and you didn’t care about anything. You don’t think about whether others have any demands on you.”
Yuan Yi was not interested in the quarrel between the two women. He held the plush doll in one hand, took out his mobile phone, and leaned against the storage box to play with it.
The man with an indifferent face, and the two female artists who taunt each other, if this scene is discovered by the paparazzi, it will probably be in the headlines of the entertainment section again. Fortunately, people are coming and going in the locker. People pass by from time to time. Wu Xuan and Zhao Fei Fei taunt each other very restrainedly. Yuan Yi, the big man carrying a stuffed animal, is not so obtrusive anymore.
When Yan Xi came out of the bathroom, she heard a man on the phone in the corner of the corridor, and his tone was a little excited.
“Honey, I’ll buy that coat with you tomorrow!”
“It’s not expensive, it’s not expensive. I won the first prize in the lottery today. I thought I was lucky enough, but a rich man suddenly appeared and said that he would spend money to buy my winning number.”
“Of course I have to give it to him. The money he gave can buy ten times the prize. I really don’t understand what rich people think nowadays. Maybe they just want to experience the joy of winning the lottery. Who knows.”
Yan Xi, who wants to experience the joy of winning the lottery: …
Passing through the corridor, Yan Xi saw Yuan Yi leaning against the locker and two women not far from him.
“Are you back?” Yuan Yi glanced up at her and handed her the stuffed animal, “Let’s go.”
Yan Xi heard Zhao Fei Fei say to another woman: “You are wicked in five elements and have no luck in life. You should go back to your hometown and marry a man to take care of your children.”
(five elements = wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. These are derived from the Five Elements Theory—or Wu Xing—a philosophy used to describe the relationship and interdependence between all things. This teaching is all about finding balance and embracing the process.)
This woman has a grudge against Zhao Fei Fei?
Stopping in her tracks, Yan Xi took a look at the woman. She had a pretty face the size of a palm.
“Mr. Yuan.” Seeing that Yuan Yi was about to leave, Wu Xuan didn’t care about arguing with Zhao Fei Fei, so she ran to Yuan Yi and begged bitterly, “Please forgive me this time, I will never dare again.”
“This lady is…” Yan Xi turned to look at Yuan Yi and suddenly saw a beautiful young woman running in front of her boyfriend to beg for forgiveness. This scene is too easy to misunderstand.
“I don’t know.” Yuan Yi lifted the coat on her body, put his arms around her shoulders, and the two walked towards the elevator.
Wu Xuan’s complexion was pale, and the tears were about to fall in her eyes, but she didn’t dare to chase after them. Until Yuan Yi and Yan Xi walked into the elevator, she still stared at the elevator door unwillingly, as if Yuan Yi would come out of the elevator again in the next second.
“Don’t look at it.” Seeing her pitiful appearance, Zhao Fei Fei didn’t have the heart to say that unspoken sarcasm, “For the sake of our friendship before, I’ll tell you the truth. If you hadn’t dragged Mr. Yuan’s girlfriend into the water when you plotted against me, causing netizens to scold her as a mistress, you wouldn’t have lost so many endorsements. But you are lucky for one thing, no one knew Mr. Yuan’s girlfriend at that time, and no one went to host Yan Weibo to scold, otherwise you will not only lose some good job opportunities today, but you will not be able to stay in this circle at all.”
“There are so many careless men, how could he like Yan Xi for the rest of his life?” Wu Xuan blinked, forcing back the tears in her eyes.
“Who knows.” Zhao Fei Fei shrugged, “But at that time, what does it have to do with you?”
“How much better are you than me?” Wu Xuan scolded angrily, “In front of all the netizens, writing an apology letter to the Yuan Yi girlfriend who didn’t even have a shadow at the time, do you know how many people laughed at you behind your back?”
“I only know that they only dare to laugh at me behind my back. In front of me, it is enough to respectfully call me Sister Zhao or Teacher Zhao.” Zhao Fei Fei raised her chin, “As for the others, I have nothing to do with you. What is the relationship?”
She has lived for thirty years, and the wisest decision was to apologize shamelessly back then. Otherwise, Wu Xuan would be her today.
“It’s snowing heavily again.” Yan Xi hugged the plush toy tightly, got into the car, sat down, and then put the plush toy between her and Yuan Yi.
Yuan Yi despised this furry thing as a hindrance, reached out and put it next to him, and sat next to Yan Xi: “A doll still wants to be a light bulb, it really deserves a beating.”
“You are really shameless.” Yan Xi couldn’t help laughing, “You even bully dolls.”
Yuan Yi said confidently: “I can’t be ashamed of this kind of light bulb.”
Yan Xi laughed again: “It seems that we can’t put other things among us in the future.”
“You can let it go.” Yuan Yi thought about it carefully, “For example… our two children.”
Yan Xi still smiled but did not refute Yuan Yi’s words.
After the car stopped outside Song’s house, Yan Xi didn’t get out of the car immediately but took out a red banknote from his handbag and put it in Yuan Yi’s hand.
“What are you doing?” Yuan Yi held the banknote with a puzzled expression on his face.
“I’ll give you this week’s pocket money.” Yan Xi kissed his dumbfounded face, “I agreed to support you, and I kept my word.”
“Is one hundred yuan a bit small?”
“Boys, you should raise them cheaply. There is too much pocket money, and it is easy to learn bad things.”
Yuan Yi: “…”
