Ch4 - A Farewell Dinner
Editor: Waterlily- Overlord Shay
Getting off work, there was an endless traffic jam in the city, Xing Yun and Xue Yingshuang sat in the car and didn’t speak, it was peacefully quiet.
Xing Yun held the steering wheel in one hand, while secretly glancing at Xue Yingshuang.
Seeing Xue Yingshuang looking out the window, he thought to himself that this person finally had a job, but it was gone in a blink of an eye.
He should be very sad.
But Xing Yun did not have a soft heart.
He still didn’t understand how he was so blind in the first place, but now that he has come to his senses, he would naturally not take Xue Yingshuang in because of a moment of softheartedness.
On the other side, Xue Yingshuang looked out the window, happily calculating how to use the money he would get from selling the computer.
Yesterday, Xing Yun reacted so much.
Although Xue Yingsuang was stunned at the moment, he adjusted after three minutes.
When he was desperate, Xing Yun took him in for a few days, and he was very satisfied.
He just has to find another job, and with enough rest these past days, he is ready to continue looking for the next job.
After stopping again and again, they finally arrived at the restaurant.
Xing Yun booked a Chinese restaurant today.
The restaurant is lofty and magnificent.
When he steps through the door, two rows of waiters line up, bow and shout “Welcome.”
They took their seats in a private room, which was elegantly decorated.
Xue Yingshuang picked up the menu and flipped through it, and found that even the menu was written in Chinese characters.
He thought to himself that working in a restaurant is also an option.
It is not easy to promote hundreds or thousands of people in a factory.
However, there are relatively fewer employees in a restaurant and they love to open new branches.
The promotion should come faster than in the factory.
It is better to come and ask if there is a shortage of people here after the meeting is done, and have a seamless job change.
With that in mind, he didn’t waste any time and started memorizing the menu in advance.
On the opposite side, Xing Yun saw Xue Yingshuang bowing his head and not speaking, he asked in a low voice, “What are you thinking about”
Xue Yingshuang didn’t dare to say that he was thinking about the eight hundred yuan for a cup of fotiaoqiang, and the seven hundred yuan for a pot of Baoshenchi belly soup, so he shook his head.
Xing Yun thought he was too sad to speak, and no longer pressed him.
The waiter came up to take their order, and Xing Yun thought that this was the last meal, so he didn’t bother with him, and deliberately ordered a few more dishes.
The two of them remained silent before the food was served.
Xing Yun was thinking about how to end the contract, while Xue Yingshuang was still memorizing the menu.
After thinking about it for a while, Xing Yun decided to get straight to the point.
However, before he could say, “This is the end of our relationship”, Xue Yingshuang said, “Excuse me, I’m going to the bathroom.”
We’re sorry for MTLers or people who like using reading mode, but our translations keep getting stolen by aggregators so we’re going to bring back the copy protection.
If you need to MTL please retype the gibberish parts.
Nevermind, these few minutes are not bad.
Xing Yun nodded and let Xue Yingshuang go.

Xue Yingshuang looked back and saw a young girl in a waiter uniform.
When the girl saw him, she looked excited and walked towards him quickly.
The person who came was Xiao Li, the female worker whom he had helped that day.
“Why are you here” The two spoke in unison, and they both laughed after speaking.
Xue Yingshuang said, “You’re not working in the factory anymore”
Xiao Li said with a red face, “I couldn’t stay in that place for longer.
They asked the squad leader to leave that day, and I followed.
It just so happened that a fellow villager was working here, so I came here to work.”
“It’s good, so you don’t have to stay there and be bullied.” Xue Yingshuang is very happy for her.
Seeing Xue Yingshuang’s gentle smile, Xiao Li was originally still smiling, but suddenly her face collapsed, she lowered her head and choked: “Squad leader, I don’t know how to thank you.
If it weren’t for you helping me, I really don’t know what I’d do… That person has been bullying me for a long time, and no one was willing to help me.”
“It’s nothing, it’s a trivial matter.”
“I really want to thank you, but I’m also sorry.
Everyone says you are amazing.
You had only been there for a little while and you were already squad leader.
You’d have definitely been promoted in the future, but because of me…”
“What nonsense,” Xue Yingshuang interrupted her, “I should have left that place a long time ago, and I have you to thank for it.”
Xue Yingshuang lost his job because he helped her, but he didn’t take it out on her at all.
Xiao Li really didn’t know why someone could be so good.
She couldn’t help but burst into tears.
Seeing her crying, Xue Yingshuang hurriedly coaxed: “Why are you crying, you are still at work! Don’t cry, don’t cry! Your salary will be deducted in a while!”
From the beginning, Xing Yun was listening to the conversation between the two.
This private room has a carved screen as the door, which looks good, but the sound insulation is not very good, so he could hear the conversation between the two clearly.
Listening to the conversation between the two, he remembered the day he met Xue Yingshuang.
Obviously a very slender person, but Xue Yingshuang had a fierce energy.
The tall opponent casually knocked him to the ground, but he kept getting up and pulling the opponent tightly to prevent the opponent from touching the girl again.
Others fought with vicious faces, but at that time Xue Yingshuang’s expression was firm but not ferocious.
He was not trying to be a hero, much less to gamble with his life, he just wanted to save people.
Xing Yun unknowingly walked to the edge of the screen and looked at Xue Yingshuang through the gaps between the woodcut bamboo leaves.
The bruises on Xue Yingshuang’s face were not yet healed, leaving a clear red mark.
However, the red mark did not damage his exquisite facial features, but showed a unique handsome appearance.
“No one has ever treated me so well…”
“Everyone will help you.”
“No, there is only you who helped me, they all saw it, but only you who helped me…”
Xiao Li is also an unfortunate child.
She rarely cries so many times in her life.
Now she can’t stop crying.
Outside the screen, Xue Yingshuang was flustered, patting her on the back while coaxing; inside the screen, Xing Yun listened quietly.
Her crying gradually overlapped with a cry in his memory, and Xing Yun’s fingers trembled slightly.
“You have suffered.” He only heard Xue Yingshuang say seriously, “You have been suffering alone all this time.”
The screen door was opened with a “swish”, and both Xue Yingshuang and Xiao Li were taken aback.
Seeing behind the door, Xing Yun stared wide-eyed, looking at Xue Yingshuang unsteadily.
Only then did Xue Yingshuang remember that Xing Yun was waiting for him, and hurriedly said to Xiao Li: “I still have something to do now.
I will find you later.
You should properly work and make more money. Jiayou!”
Xue Yingshuang closed the door and hurriedly returned to his seat.
He apologized and said, “I’m sorry, I was delayed when I ran into a friend, and she was not in a good mood.”
Xing Yun was still standing in front of the screen, looking at Xue Yingshuang from top to bottom, and asked, “Why did you help her in the first place”
Xue Yingshuang was taken aback, and then remembered that Xing Yun was also on the scene.
Xue Yingshuang was a little embarrassed when he thought that he had a face similar to the white moonlight and being rubbed on the ground, which was too detrimental to white moonlight’s image.
But after thinking about it for a while, he couldn’t tell that Xing Yun just liked to watch white moonlight being rubbed on the ground, so he asked him to be a stand-in.
Xue Yingshuang said: “When the road is uneven, it is everyone's duty to draw a knife to help .”
Xing Yun listened but shook his head: “Not everyone is willing to help others, but many people turn a blind eye to the suffering of others.”
“You are very brave.”
Xue Yingshuang never thought that Xing Yun would say such things.
He was flattered and replied, “It’s just a trivial matter.”
Xing Yun said: “It’s a trivial matter for others, but it’s not the same thing for the parties involved.”
Xing Yun stopped turning his head, looked at the bamboo leaves on the screen, and asked, “If it were me, would you help me”
Xue Yingshuang thought to himself that it is possible for you to bully others but who could bully you But Xing Yun’s tone was serious.
After thinking for a while, he said, “Of course, I will stand up for you if there is anything.”
Xing Yun nodded, chuckled suddenly, turned around and strode back to the table to sit down, with both eyes looking straight at Xue Yingshuang.
It was a different look from the affectionate one he used before.
He was looking intently at this man in front of him.
Although Xing Yun had a lot of shortcomings, he was too handsome, especially those big drooping eyes, which were extremely lethal.
Xue Yingshuang turned his gaze away and stared at the menu silently.
Xing Yun didn’t care about his dodging at all, he was in a good mood.
He understood why he wanted Xue Yingshuang like crazy in the first place.
It turned out that appearance was only second, the point was that Xue Yingshuang’s behavior was like Bai Qianyi in high school.
Speaking of which, Xue Yingshuang was even braver than Bai Qianyi.
Thinking about it this way, a lot of trivial details didn’t matter.
The waiter served the dishes one after another, and in a short while there were seven or eight dishes laid out in front of them.
After eating for a while, Xue Yingshuang saw that Xing Yun wanted to clip a fish, but he couldn’t clip it up properly.
A good fish was about to be crushed, so he simply stretched out his chopsticks and squeezed a large piece of fish into Xing Yun’s bowl.
Xing Yun looked up at him and said, “You eat too.”
Xue Yingshuang was not polite to him either.
He stretched out his chopsticks again, took half of the fish with one chopstick, and buried his head in the bitterness.
Xing Yun: “……”
Seeing that he didn’t move, Xue Yingshuang raised his head and said, “You are going to dismiss me.
Why can’t I eat more”
Xing Yun clenched his chopsticks: “When did I say I was going to dismiss you”
Xue Yingshuang looked at the computer on the side: “Otherwise, what do you want me to do with the computer”
“Of course it’s to take you to buy some accessories and computer bags.” Xing Yun’s tone was natural, “Take it for convenience and comparison, we’ll go and buy some before we go home.”
