TL: Oh please forgive my sins
Chapter 71: An invitation for dinner
Ever since Luo Bin returned to the front seat, her previously cold exterior was restored, not taking the initiative to speak with Qin Lang for the rest of the day. While in Zhao Kan’s perspective, this was simply but the usual Luo Bin, Qin Lang, on the other hand, suspected that her coldness might have had something to do with the towel Jiang Xueqing sent him.
Qin Lang felt that he had been a bit wronged, after all when he saved Jiang Xueqing he was merely lifting a finger to help and thus did not take it seriously, however, with the advancement of technology and information gathering, criminal cases become more transparent and public, and from this Jiang XueQing found out exactly how dangerous the establishment she was at previously was, and the kind of person that her “friend” Fu Ying Xiao actually was, as well as the dangerous trap she faced. Jiang Xueqing also knew, if it was not for Qin Lang, she would have likely repeated the mistakes of Ling Ling and the other girls, causing Jiang XueQing to be grateful to Qin Lang from the bottom of her heart.
However, leaving aside the fact that Jiang XueQing was grateful, as a recognized beauty of Seven Mid, there are many boys who will usually take the initiative to pursue her, some going as far as to harass her, causing her no little trouble.
However, Qin Lang on the other hand, did not try to use saving her as a pretext to get closer to her, going as far as not to even mention it in front of her, similar to being a living rendition of “Lei Feng”. Thus, in Jiang Xueqing’s opinion, Qin Lang is a really good and virtuous gentleman.
Thus, when it rained today, Jiang XueQing directly disregarded the views of others and gave a towel to Qin Lang.
But Jiang Xueqing did not know that she’s a towel, hair clip of the Empresses’ mother, creating a gap akin to the milky way between Qin Lang and Luo Bin, moreover containing both a bone-chilling cold and forlorn should you stare into it.
While Zhao Kan, who did not know the entirety of the situation, felt that Qin Lang was incredibly lucky, Qin Lang himself knew how tricky of a situation he got himself into.
However, Qin Lang did not immediately follow the coast to explain as some things often added insult to injury and seeing that he just had a reunion with Luo Bin, there was no sort of commitment towards each other, their contact only due to old memories. One could say that their emotional bond was actually very fragile and could not stand another blow.
In addition, after school, Qin Lang also has his own things to deal with –
Wu Wenxiang was probably currently waiting for Qin Lang at his home
Qin Lang knew, since he asked for help from Wu Wenxiang, there will certainly have to be some form of follow up from his side.
After school, Chen Jinyong personally came to fetch Qin Lang.
Wu Wenxiang and Chen Jinyong, in fact, have their own drivers, but it happens Chen Jinyong Wu Wenxiang was willing to act as a driver. Because if it is not the case, Chen Jinyong promotion of speed, which may be followed by a helicopter ride like.
In fact, both Wu Wenxiang and Chen Jinyong had their own drivers, but as Wu Wenxiang was riding, Chen Jinyong was willing to act as a driver. Ever since he joined Wu Wenxiang, his career could be compared to a helicopter taking off,
As they reached Wu WenXiang’s home, Wu Wenxiang opened the door for them.
“Chen, staying for dinner?” Wu Wenxiang asked Chen Jinyong.
“Wu mayor, my wife is still waiting for me at home, how about you let me book off early instead?” Chen Jinyong certainly knew Wu Wenxiang just said it due to courtesy ,if he had really agreed to stay for dinner it would only serve to anger his boss. Having worked as a secretary for a considerable amount of time,if Chen JinYong didn’t have a bit of capability, he would have been replaced a long time ago.
As Wu Wenxiang only asked to be polite, he did not insist Chen Jinyong stay for dinner. After closing the door, Wu Wenxiang said gently: “Little Qin, you didn’t suffer any bitterness at the police station today right?”
“How would anything happen to me with Mayor Wu around.” Qin Lang said while faint smile.
“I never thought that you had relationships with those at squadron 84, really not simple.” Wu Wenxiang inadvertently said, showing that he had caught wind regarding what had happened at the police station today.
“A classmate helped me.” Qin Lang said flatly.
Wu Wenxiang chuckled, he certainly things were not as simple as he described, the armed squadron 84 was a part of the Elite in the military and although they stationed near Hsia city, but even if he did not have the right to mobilize them as the mayor.
Oh right, you haven’t ate your dinner have you, come and enjoy it with me” Wu Wenxiang invited Qin Lang into the dining room, where, there are two women dressed in red cheongsams were busy doing things such as serving and receiving orders.
“Qin Lang looked at their badges,”Municipal Government Guest house” being written on them.
With the two women’s deft hands, food quickly arrived at their table.
At this time, Wu Wenxiang helped his mother come over as she was bound to a wheelchair, a blanket on her legs.
“How did this happen, auntie?” Qin Lang remembered the last time he had visited, Wu Wenxiang mother was still healthy and on her two feet.
“I had a rheumatism attack yesterday.” Granny Yan explained,”
“Yesterday rheumatism attack.” Yan Granny exclaimed, “My bones are no longer young and so is my body. It had rained yesterday, causing my rheumatism to relapse. *Sigh* It looks like I don’t have much longer to live do I …… “
“Mother. why do you say this? Medicine is much more advanced nowadays, there should be no problem for you to live much longer.” Wu Wenxiang comforted her.
“Don’t give me that nonsense about how medicine has advanced, they can’t even cure my rheumatism.” Granny Yan snorted, “Looking back, it would have been a better idea to get a chinese doctor to see me, those western doctors can not be trusted ……”
“Those chinese doctors are mostly frauds-“
“Now, Mayor Wu, you can’t say that without proper evidence.” Qin Lang could not help but interrupt Wu Wenxiang words, “Chinese medicine is not a fraud, when we did not have western medicine, did China not still function perfectly fine? “
“Exactly, you may be a big Mayor, but I think it’s still little Qin that knows better.” Granny Yan grunted, and then motioned towards the two waiters and said, “Girls, you have been busy for the whole day, come and eat with us. “
“Honoured madam, enjoy your meal, we still have to work.” The two waitress would never dare to eat with the mayor, thus excused themselves quickly.
“Yeah, this is their job.” Wu Wenxiang said, “but I will make sure they get an extra bonus at the end of the month.”
The two waitresses were overjoyed, and hastily thanked him.
Qin Lang was unsure of why Wu Wenxiang had invited him for dinner today, but he had a inkling that it was related to what had happened earlier today. As Wu Wenxiang has not opened up, Qin Lang would obviously not take the initiative to prompt him.
A meal was a meal, and while others might be concerned with matters such as manners or etiquette while dining with the Mayor, this was of no concern to Qin Lang who ate in large mouthfuls as normal.
“Little Qin, you should eat a bit more, else the food would be wasted.” Seeing Qin Lang ravenously devouring the food on the table, Granny Yan was very pleased. She disliked seeing Wu WenXiang order a full table of dishes, yet not even lifting his chopsticks. Granny Yan used to belong in a farmer’s family, and thus disliked food wastage the most.
Before they even finished their dinner, the doorbell rang.
Wu Wenxiang hesitated for a while before opening the door.
“Dear Mayor, why have you took the initiative to open the door, it’s rare to see you being this nice.” Outside stood two men, one of which is impressively Cai Weidong, which face was still swelling slightly, while the other looked to be middle-aged, sharing a fairly similar appearance with Cai Weidong, probably his father.
“So you are Old Cao, no need to be polite, come right in.” Wu Wenxiang said politely on the surface.
