Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 61
Translated and edited by CutieBinkie
Ruan Yan changed her shoes and was taken to the living room by Zhou Mengyan. Sitting on the sofa, she happily opened the dessert bag, and then took out the cheese mocha cake, “Meng Yan, do you want to eat it?”
The man walked to the kitchen, “No more.”
Then she will enjoy it alone.
She fumbled to open the package and picked up the transparent cover on it. She picked up the cake and held the fork in one hand. She first touched it tentatively a few times, and knew the shape.
It is really not convenient for a person to eat cakes, she has to take her time.
Slowly scooped her mouth with a fork, she put it in her mouth, and the sweet cheese was mixed with the mocha flavor and filled every corner of her mouth. She felt that this was the happiest moment.
The cakes she made with her grandma once tasted like heaven, every bite is sweet to the bottom of her heart.
The man came out of the kitchen holding a glass of water, and he saw Ruan Yan eating a cake with a small satisfied expression on her face, as if he was about to escape into the void.
“Is it delicious?”
She nodded, “It’s very delicious, I don’t think this is greasy at all.”
As soon as her voice fell, the tip of her nose was wiped off with a tissue. Ruan Yan was stunned and touched her nose: “I, did I accidentally eat it…”
Ruan Yan rubbed the back of her hand against the tip of her nose again, and her cheeks turned red.
Pay attention to eating phase, pay attention to eating phase QAQ…
So Ruan Yan was taken upstairs by Zhou Mengyan, and when she arrived in the bedroom, she sat at the small table and continued to eat cakes. The man went to the study to handle some remaining work.
He was busy, and Teng Heng called.
“Zhou Mengyan, I saw the circle of friends sent by Sister Zhan Jing today. Did you go to Sucheng with her this time?”
“We just met.”
“Oh, what a coincidence, today is the birthday of Sister Zhanjing. When you come back, let’s celebrate her birthday.”
“Yes, did you forget it?”
“I didn’t write it down.”
Zhou Mengyan never remembers other people’s birthdays.
Because he doesn’t even have his own birthday.
“Hey, it really is you, that’s okay, I’ll hang up.”
Zhou Mengyan hung up the phone, didn’t think much, and continued to deal with the official business at hand.
The next morning, Ruan Yan and Zhou Mengyan got up at the same time, and left the villa together after washing and went to the restaurant.
Zhou Mengyan still has half a day of meetings this morning. Ruan Yan woke up early, because she didn’t want to wait for someone to have breakfast alone, so she just went with him.
When they arrived at the entrance of the restaurant, a woman in a small light blue suit just walked over–
Seeing them, Zhong Zhanjing was startled at first, then smiled and walked forward: “Hi, good morning you guys.”
Ruan Yan heard that, “Miss Zhong——”
Zhong Zhanjing walked to her side, “Ruan Yan, did you rest well last night?”
“Do you mind if I have breakfast with you?”
Ruan Yan shook his head, “Of course I don’t mind.”
Inside is the restaurant. After the three of them found the location, Zhong Zhanjing asked her softly, “Sit down, I’ll get you breakfast. What do you want to eat?”
The girl thanked her and asked her to help get an extra copy.
Zhong Zhanjing and Zhou Mengyan walked to the food area. The two had a brief conversation. After a while, Zhou Mengyan remembered something, “Was your birthday yesterday?”
Zhong Zhanjing paused with the toast in her hand, gliding over the fleeting emotions under her eyes, and teased him with a smile, “You really forgot… who told you.”
“He told you specifically?”
“No, I just said to go back and give you a replacement birthday.”
Zhong Zhanjing calmly tightened her eyelashes, “No, it’s not necessary. I don’t have a birthday.”
She eased her emotions, picked up a piece of toast, and looked at him, “Do you want it?”
“It’s okay, I’ll do it myself.”
Zhou Mengyan walked to another dining area, Zhong Zhanjing put the toast back in place, feeling a bitterness in her throat.
It turned out that even if he knew her birthday, he would not have any indication.
Ruan Yan sat in her seat and waited. After a while, she heard Zhong Zhanjing’s voice: “Breakfast is here.”
She put the dinner plate in front of Ruan Yan and sat next to her: “I have a sandwich, pastries and side dishes for you. I don’t know if you like soy milk or milk. I will first pour you a glass of milk and a piece of porridge.”
“Thank you, Miss Zhong.”
“I feel that this title is too raw, call me ‘Sister Zhanjing’.”
The three of them had breakfast, and Zhong Zhanjing asked Zhou Mengyan: “There is no work in the afternoon. Do you have any arrangements with Ruan Yan?”
The man said that there was no arrangement, so Zhong Zhanjing suggested that she accompany Ruan Yan to stroll around in the garden in the afternoon, “Anyway, I’m quite bored by myself. I just happen to have Ruan Yan as a company. Ruan Yan, do you have time?”
“I have no problem.”
Zhong Zhanjing smiled quietly, “That’s great. Zhou Mengyan, then you can do your business by yourself, your wife will be mine.”
After the morning meeting is over, even if this meeting is successfully completed, after everyone signs the contract, you can officially start enjoying your vacation life in the afternoon.
In the afternoon, the sunny day suddenly became darker, and the sun was hiding behind the clouds. This kind of weather is more suitable for visiting the garden.
When Zhong Zhanjing met Ruan Yan on the corridor of Xiangruo at the appointed time, she found Zhou Mengyan and Zhai Zhen’s family standing beside her.
This afternoon, Zhou Mengyan and Zhai Zhen would like to talk about some work matters, and Qiu An took her son out to stroll around.
Qiu An saw Zhong Zhanjing who was here and warmly invited her, “Miss Zhong, my son is hosting his birthday in the Bingquan Restaurant tonight, and you are here too.”
It turned out that it was a child’s birthday.
Zhong Zhan calmly turned away from the superfluous expression, smiled and touched the little boy’s head, “Okay, happy birthday, kid Jiajia.”
The six people present were divided into three groups. The two men went on business. Ruan Yan and Zhong Zhanjing were visiting the garden together. Qiu An said not to follow the two of them. Jia Jia clamored to go boating, and she took him there.
After everyone else had left, Zhong Zhanjing looked at the blind Ruan Yan and slightly raised the corners of her lips, “You can hold me, I will take you away.”
Ruan Yan’s hand held Zhong Zhanjing’s arms, and the latter led her slowly out of the similar corridor.
“Ruan Yan, I’m a little curious, is your blindness caused by nature or acquired?”
“In July this year, it was caused after I had a car accident.”
“Can it be restored? Or will it always be like this?”
“It can be treated.”
“…That’s good, you look so beautiful and your eyes are so beautiful. If you can’t see it from now on, it’s really a pity.”
The mobile phone in Zhong Zhanjing’s bag rang, and she took it out, “Sorry, I will answer the call.”
Standing on the side, Ruan Yan heard Zhong Zhanjing’s solemn and quiet voice, “Before tomorrow, You must come up with a plan that I am satisfied with. You must negotiate with the supplier yourself…”
At the end, when Ruan Yan heard her hang up, Zhong Zhan said quietly, “It’s something in the company, it’s too much trouble for those people.”
Ruan Yan: “Are you usually busy?”
“I just returned to the Congress, it is natural to be busy.” Zhong Zhanjing’s family is also a family business, focusing on the luggage industry. After finishing her postgraduate studies, she entered the company for internship and was promoted to the position of deputy general manager within a year based on her own strength.
At work, Zhong Zhanjing is a very capable woman.
After listening to Ruan Yan, she showed admiration, “I feel like you are too independent.”
“My parents have taught me since I was young that girls must be independent and self-reliant, have their own specialties and skills, and they have strict management of me,” Zhong Zhanjing looked at Ruan Yan, “and I don’t have a boyfriend, of course I have to rely on myself.”
“Sister Zhan Jing, I feel that your life is particularly good.”
Ruan Yan feels that she was totally different from the other party. She also wants to be independent, but because of her current conditions, she can’t do many things.
However, Zhong Zhanjing felt that this was a satire.
She patted Ruan Yan’s hand, softly soothing, “Don’t think so much now, heal your eyes, and you can plan your life when you recover. And sometimes I envy you… It was easy.”
“No, I think I’m too idle…”
The two of them walked forward. The sky was getting darker and darker. Ruan Yan couldn’t see. Suddenly she felt a few drops of rain on the top of her head and the back of her hands, “Is it raining?”
As soon as her voice fell, the rain fell completely and ruthlessly as she said.
When the two of them walked outdoors, Zhong Zhanjing frowned, “Let’s go quickly.”
Ruan Yan held her forward, because she couldn’t see, Zhong Zhanjing didn’t dare to walk too fast, so that after reaching the front pavilion, both of them were showered.
Support to my work would be amazing and would really mean a lot, if you enjoy my work, kindly consider buying me a coffee!
