Cross the line?
Shi Yunnan recalled the word and subconsciously gave a bitter smile.
Looking at Luo Lingsheng in front of him, he suddenly felt that he would be wrong. He thought that the two had extended other feelings based on the “agreement”.
But now a simple word pulls his reason.
It turned out that he was just an outsider who crossed the boundary in Luo Lingsheng’s heart.
A new round of silence spread.
Luo Lingsheng suddenly dared not look directly into Shi Yunnan’s eyes. After living for so many years, he was deeply trapped in self blame, inferiority and guilt for the first time.
During his hard breathing, his tight heart string was almost broken.
Shi Yunnan got up slowly.
Just when Luo Lingsheng thought Shi Yunnan was leaving, he was only right to push the farther wheelchair back to him.
It may be difficult for Luo Lingsheng to get a wheelchair position alone.
“I know what you’re afraid of, but the inconvenience of your legs has never been your problem. You’ve lived better than most people.”
Shi Yun lowered his eyes to the South and quietly looked at the sound of Luo Ling on the ground like a trapped animal. For a moment, it can’t be said whether he loves each other more or himself more.
“Luo Lingsheng, I’ll go now.”
“Get up by yourself.”
Shi Yunnan dropped such a sentence and quickly stepped out of the training room. When he stepped out of the gate, he just ran into Luo Rong.
The two met face to face. Luo Rong was a little surprised, “Mr. Shi? Is the sound inside?”
Shi Yunnan repressed the astringency that gradually filled his heart, “but you’d better not disturb him now.”
Before Luo Lingsheng got back into his wheelchair, he should not want anyone to see his embarrassment.
Shi Yunnan said that and passed her quickly.
Luo Rong stopped for a while, and her natural instinct as a woman told her——
There seems to be something wrong with Shi Yunnan’s mood.
However, the two were strangers who met for the first time, and she had some problems.
Luo Rong waited outside for two or three minutes according to Shi Yunnan’s meaning, and then walked in.
Shi Yunnan suppressed the chaos in his mind and walked out for more than ten meters, then reluctantly stopped.
He lowered his head and stepped on the small stone under his feet, muttering angrily, “cross the border? I cross the border?”
If I really crossed the line, I would have climbed into your Luo Lingsheng’s bed! I’m really used to being the owner of the house. I can jump out of anything!
But on second thought, Shi Yunnan also understood.
Luo Lingsheng just cared too much about his legs, so he was in a hurry and pressed him with heavy words.
Yu Guang of Shi Yunnan glanced at the couple’s watch on his wrist and his mood fluctuated again. However, after a moment of hesitation, he immediately returned to the training room.
It’s already like this anyway.
Some thoughts, he doesn’t spit out.
The worst result is that Luo Lingsheng can’t accept it. They can get together and break up.
Shi Yunnan returned to the independent training room. As soon as he entered the door, he heard a faint conversation. He subconsciously slowed down his footsteps, and suppressed his impulse to enter the door to confess.
Shi Yunnan stood at the visual dead corner of the corner, obliquely through the frosted glass, he could see the situation inside——
One person in the room is Luo Rong standing, and the other is Luo Lingsheng who has returned to his wheelchair.
Shi Yunnan knew that eavesdropping on other people’s speeches was not a moral thing. He was just about to make a sound into the house. As a result, Luo Rong’s question suddenly made him freeze in place.
“Why get married suddenly? Or with Mr. Shi?”
This second, even though he knew that such “eavesdropping” was impolite, Shi Yunnan still stood at the corner and did not move.
Luo Lingsheng in the house was silent and didn’t speak, but Luo Rong continued the topic, “I remember you didn’t have a favorite person before? Didn’t you plan to chase someone before something big happened to the Luo family?”
For a moment, the light at the bottom of Shi Yunnan’s eyes darkened. He suddenly recalled the conversation of servants he overheard just before entering Luo.
——Is there someone in the owner’s heart? Who? How do you know?
——I also heard others guess that the owner had a favorite object before. Before he could pursue it, he had an accident and hurt his leg. This is not the following.
Shi Yunnan always thought that these gossip were just nonsense jokes made by servants, but now even Luo Rong said similar words, he knew that everything was true.
Luo Lingsheng has white moonlight in his heart, and he is just an outsider who “agrees to get married” and can’t cross the border.
Shi Yunnan’s hands hanging on both sides were unconsciously squeezed into fists, and his courage gushed out under impulse was completely broken.
He was afraid that if he stayed here, he would only hear more he didn’t want to hear. He turned a little stiff and walked away like an escape.
The conversation in the house continues.
Luo Rong rarely saw Luo Lingsheng distracted and said in surprise, “Lingsheng? What do you think? I finally came to see you, but you are haunted by me?”
“I just saw Mr. Shi running out in the wrong state. Did you two quarrel?”
Luo Lingsheng’s sister and Luo Rong are of the same age. Although the elders fight openly and secretly, the relationship between the two cousins is good from childhood, and the relationship between Luo Lingsheng and Luo Rong is not bad.
In those years, before Luo’s big event, the three brothers and sisters gathered together to drink and chat. That is, under the unanimous coaxing and questioning of their own sister and cousin, Luo Lingsheng reluctantly revealed that “there is someone you like in your heart.”.
But it didn’t last long. Lord Luo died of a heart attack soon. Then, the whole family fought openly and secretly.
Luo Lingsheng experienced many hardships and became the master of his family. So many people in the Imperial Palace tried to get into his eyes, but the results were there——
No one can succeed.
Some people’s mind is improperly close, and the end is even worse.
Everyone said that Luo Lingsheng must not be looking for another half.
When these things reached Luo Rong’s ears, he took it for granted that his cousin still had the secret love object in his heart, but he refused to act because of the inconvenience of his legs.
But she didn’t expect that the news of Luo Lingsheng and Shi Yunnan’s marriage license would suddenly come out this year.
It’s not easy to catch time to return home. Naturally, she has to ask.
Luo Lingsheng’s eyes showed complexity and remorse, and asked, “did you just go out and meet him?”
“Yes, I feel he is not in high spirits.” Luo Rong told the truth and became more curious. “Tell me, what’s the matter with you two?”
She really didn’t expect that Luo Lingsheng’s character could play flash marriage with others.
“As you can see, I’m serious about marrying him.”
Luo Lingsheng’s answer was brief.
He is not a man who likes to reveal his private life.
Luo Rong asked again, “… The person in your heart has been put down now?”
“No one else.”
With a simple answer, Luo Rongzhen was completely in place.
She let out an unbelievable short smile. Obviously, she didn’t expect that the person in front of her cousin was her sweetheart.
Luo Lingsheng didn’t care about her reaction, but asked, “don’t allow the south. I don’t want to burden him.”
The two people are in the form of “marriage by agreement”. If one day Shi Yunnan is tired of this life, he can let each other leave at any time.
Since the accident, he has struggled to cure his leg, but every time he has little hope.
If he was destined to live in a wheelchair in his life, he should not force Shi Yunnan to “cross the border”.
It doesn’t matter in his life, but he can’t hurt Shi Yunnan.
Luo Rong was measured. “Don’t worry, I’m going to fly abroad this afternoon. I don’t know when to return home next time. I won’t meddle in your husband’s affairs.”
She looked at Luo Lingsheng’s legs and mentioned the business of coming here this time. “By the way, I have something important to tell you.”
“I asked your brother-in-law to contact the most authoritative Bens team in neurology in the world for you. It happens to be the same origin as the team of Dr. Michelle you were treated before.”
Luo Rong married a foreigner who was the president of a foreign private hospital and had many medical contacts.
In the past two years, the husband and wife have taken great pains about Luo Lingsheng.
“They contacted a patient half a year ago. The situation is similar to yours. After less than half a year of rest and rehabilitation, although they haven’t reached the level of normal people, they don’t need to rely on wheelchairs all day.”
“The two teams directly contacted by your brother-in-law roughly explained your situation. The two sides discussed and studied it for a long time. The final conclusion is’ you can try ‘, but I can’t guarantee it.”
“The most difficult point is that the success rate of surgery is very low, and if this treatment fails, your sciatic nerve may not be able to withstand excessive rehabilitation and treatment…”
In other words, the probability of surgical success is far lower than the harm of surgical failure.
Luo Lingsheng was silent for a long time after hearing these words.
Luo Rong knew it was difficult to do, so he had to give a tactful suggestion first. “Your brother-in-law’s meaning is that if you are willing, you’d better accept an all-round inspection and let the teams of both sides reassess according to your current situation.”
Everyone is an independent individual. We should analyze the specific situation.
As for money, the most important thing they need is money. As long as there is hope of cure, everything is easy to talk about.
“When can I make an appointment?” Luo Lingsheng asked questions. Shi Yunnan’s eyes came to mind.
“I think the sooner the better.”
“If you’re in a hurry, will you go abroad with me this afternoon? I guessed you won’t give up. You talked to your brother-in-law on the phone yesterday. If you’re sure, you should be able to make an appointment tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.”
Luo Lingsheng replied, “OK.”
The wind on both sides of the window poured in madly, whirring in Shi Yunnan’s ear, but even so, it could not blow out the unspeakable anxiety in his heart.
His mind was full of absurdity and ridicule in his behavior for more than three months.
Because of a night’s dream, I changed a paper agreement, bound myself for this, and fell in love with a person I shouldn’t like.
In the end, he knew that he was just the redundant one before he confessed to Luo Lingsheng.
At the thought that he fooled around with Luo Lingsheng by relying on the so-called “agreement” and even called each other “husband” twice and three times, he felt an unprecedented shame.
Shi Yunnan pressed his throat and burst into a sob. He simply parked his car in the parking space on the side of the road.
He took out his cell phone and turned it over.
Wen Yibei only experienced a quarrel at the banquet yesterday. Shi Yunnan didn’t want to bring his negative emotions to each other.
Shi Yunnan thought about it and called his friend for the first time.
The ‘drop’ sound of the phone lasted for a long time before Fu Ziyu got through, “Hey, son, why?”
“Are you in the nightclub?” Shi Yunnan asked.
Fu Zi was stunned for a long time and said in a hoarse voice, “it’s only two o’clock in the afternoon. Whose nightclub does business during the day? The nightclub holds activities this week. I’m busy until four or five o’clock in the morning every day. I’m almost tired.”
Fu Ziyu’s voice on the phone was really full of fatigue. He seemed to be half asleep and asked, “what’s the matter? I’ll get up and find you now?”
“Forget it, it doesn’t matter.”
Shi Yunnan refused and reluctantly pretended to be relaxed. “I just didn’t feel like I had a good drink with you for too long. Before I started at the nightclub last time, something happened to Yuanrui temporarily.”
“Harm, that’s not easy? Come here tonight and I’ll drink enough with you.”
Across the phone, Fu Ziyu, who was woken up in his sleep, didn’t find the abnormality of his friend.
He slowed down for a while and joked, “however, you should talk to Luo Lingsheng first so that he won’t…”
When Shi Yunnan heard the name, he immediately frowned and interrupted, “stop talking. Go to sleep.”
With that, he hung up the phone like an escape, and the bottom of his heart was even worse.
Shi Yunnan looked at the few names recorded in the call contact book, and his heart was empty.
He has not returned to China many times in recent years. Without his “agreement relationship” with Luo Lingsheng, he would not have many places to go abroad. Just like now, he can’t find a place to hide temporarily.
Just thinking, a strange phone number called.
Shi Yunnan hesitated for a moment and answered the phone, “hello.”
“Hello, is this Mr. Shi?”
The voice line at the other end of the phone was familiar. Shi Yunnan thought a little, and the owner of the voice automatically appeared in his mind.
“It’s me. I took the liberty to contact you like this. Last time you left a phone when Yuanshi bought the jade carving, I asked the clerk for it privately.” Lu Zhao calmly explained the reason.
Shi Yunnan had a good impression of this figure, “well, what’s the matter with Mr. Lu?”
Lu Zhaoan came straight to the point, “don’t you know if it’s convenient for Mr. Shi to meet these two days? I have cooperation in jade design and want to talk to you.”
Shi Yunnan was surprised at the speech. Obviously, he didn’t expect Lu Zhaoan to mention it.
He looked at the vehicles speeding by on the road, remembered his situation of doing nothing now, and was trying to find something to divert his attention.
“Now, where can we meet?”
Lu Zhao’an didn’t expect Shi Yunnan to promise so readily. He was slightly stunned and replied, “let’s decide the location, Mr. Shi. Since I have something to ask, I’ll go to you.”
Half an hour later, Shi Yunnan sank into the soft sofa and quietly listened to the melodious tune from the store.
After talking to Lu Zhaoan on the phone, he found a nearby Qing bar with good online evaluation.
A welcome sounded at the door.
Shi Yunnan looked up and saw Lu Zhaoan. Obviously, the other party saw him for the first time and came straight over.
“Hello, Mr. Shi.”
“Sit down and have a drink?” Shi Yunnan sat upright.
Lu Zhaoan glanced at the drink in front of him and calmly replied, “like you, lemon black tea. I drove.”
When the waiter heard this, he immediately went down and prepared.
Shi Yunnan took a sip of black tea. “Mr. Lu, how did you know I would design?”
Lu Zhaoan said, “it’s also simple. The jade beads on the shell of Lou’s new products are provided by our original family.”
Hearing the coincidence, Shi Yunnan couldn’t help sighing.
As the current core person in charge of Yuanshi, Lu Zhaoan naturally knows the best-selling degree of Lou’s new product design in the market, and this series of designs are the national style he likes, so he took the initiative to ask Lou about the designer of this series of products.
Then he accidentally got the name of ‘Shi Yunnan’.
Not only that, he also learned one thing from Mrs. Lou’s supplement: Shi Yunnan seems to have a lot of research on jewelry and should have been engaged in relevant design before.
As soon as he came and went, Lu Zhaoan became more and more determined to contact Shi Yunnan.
While talking, the waiter brought up the drink.
After waiting for the other party to leave, Shi Yunnan asked, “what does Mr. Lu mean by the jade design he just said on the phone?”
Lu Zhaoan sincerely needs cooperation and answers Shi Yunnan’s questions carefully.
“To tell you the truth, Yuan’s family relied mainly on jade carving at the beginning. If you go up for forty or fifty years and the jade carving market is hot, Yuan’s family can be regarded as one of the best signboards in China…”
But in the past ten years, the road of jade carving market has become narrower and narrower.
Batch mechanical flow processing replaces manual fine carving. The quality of goods in the market is uneven, which indirectly affects the sales.
Although it is said that a good artificial jade carving can still sell at a high price, the cost is also directly proportional to the energy. Sometimes it really should be said——
It’s rare to open it once in three years.
Because the jade carving craft can’t support themselves, the original jade carving master can walk and change his industry, and few people in the new generation can learn this craft calmly.
During the past two years when Lu Zhaoan managed yuan’s family for his master, he clearly felt the spatial limitations of jade carving. It was more like art in the circle than the trend pursuit of the public.
Yuan’s sales volume in the jade carving industry has decreased year by year, which can be supported by the sale of raw stones.
Shi Yunnan probably understood Lu Zhaoan’s idea. “What Mr. Lu meant was to take jade jewelry as a new way?”
The ancestors of the original family made a rule: do one line and concentrate one line. Jade carving is the foundation of their original family. They can’t be dazzled by others.
Therefore, Yuanshi has not developed the jade jewelry market on a large scale. Now the market is occupied by other companies.
Because of the massiness of jade itself, most jewelry designs are easy to give people a sense of “maturity”, and the market itself has not been fully opened.
If Yuanshi wants to attract customers now, in addition to the common jade design, it should also rely on novel design.
Shi Yunnan jumped out of this limitation in Lou’s design. Although it is not a complete jade design, it has the same merits.
“I want to find a group of designers to cooperate. Designers can be mass-produced designs or high-end auction designs. Yuan’s side can provide all the raw stones and materials used in the design.”
“In addition to the lump sum design fee, the selling price can also be divided according to the contract.”
After Lu Zhaoan confirmed that he wanted to do it, he immediately found his master yuan Puguang to discuss it. After thinking over and over again, the latter decided to delegate power to him.
“Mr. Shi, I know this proposal is very abrupt, and there are differences between the appearance design and jade design, but if you have ideas, you are welcome to cooperate with us at any time.”
Lu Zhao was calm and sincere.
Shi Yunnan didn’t hurry to answer, but remembered another thing——
Because Yuan Rui, the second male, Yuan’s follow-up trend is not bad, and he has indeed made a name for himself in jade design and made his own signboard and market.
But all this is based on Xie KeYue’s proposal.
Xie KeYue proposed and took a stake in Yuan’s jade design field, so when Yuan’s jade jewelry industry was full, he naturally made a lot of money.
As for yuan Rui, who is in charge of this matter, naturally trusts this good friend more.
Now, how did Lu Zhaoan open his mouth?
Lu Zhaoan saw that Shi Yunnan didn’t speak, “Mr. Shi?”
“Mr. Lu doesn’t know. What I’m engaged in abroad is jewelry design.”
“It is said that diamonds and jade are not separated. If I can apply the design skills I have learned to the jade design in China, I…”
Before he finished speaking, the mobile phone on the desk rang again, the incoming call vibrated, and the name displayed – Luo Lingsheng.
Seeing the name, Shi Yunnan finally concentrated his thoughts and floated out again.
In Lu Zhaoan’s eyes, he thought it was inconvenient for him to answer the phone, “Mr. Shi, you are free. Do you need me to avoid it first?”
Shi Yunnan calmed down, directly hung up the phone and turned it off. “Let’s continue. I’m very interested in Mr. Lu’s cooperation proposal.”
Luo Lingsheng looked at the phone that was hung up, dialed again and turned off, and twisted his eyebrows complicatedly.
Seeing all this, uncle Qin couldn’t help but come close and remind, “master, don’t worry too much. Mr. Shi may have something to do when he goes out. It’s inconvenient to answer the phone.”
Luo Lingsheng didn’t answer, and the complexity between the eyebrows and eyes was more obvious.
Yuan Meng is taking his simple luggage out. Qin Jian tidies up his work, takes a look at the time and walks forward, “master, it’s time for us to go to the airport.”
“Can you change the signature?” Luo Lingsheng asked.
Before, he said something wrong in the training room, which led Shi Yunnan to run out. Now the other party seems to be holding his breath and not answering the phone. He is not at ease.
“Change the signature?”
Qin Jian glanced at the housekeeper Qin Bo without knowing why. Under the silent signal of the latter, he immediately picked up his mobile phone to inquire.
“The earliest one is tomorrow noon.”
As soon as the voice fell, Luo Rong, who had already prepared to start on the same road, came back from the outside, “Lingsheng, I just talked to your brother-in-law on the phone. The team said that I could plug in the space to arrange inspection tomorrow night.”
“I’m afraid it’s inconvenient for other patients to make an appointment the day after tomorrow.”
As an elder, the housekeeper came forward and whispered to him, “master, you, Miss Luo Rong and Qin Bamboo Slips go first.”
“If Shi Yunnan doesn’t return home after 5 p.m., I’ll contact and send someone to find him. You don’t have to worry about me, young master.”
“Your leg injury is a big deal. Try not to delay if you can.”
Luo Lingsheng didn’t refute, but sent another two words to Shi Yunnan using wechat, and replied helplessly, “let’s go.”
Before 7:00 pm, Shi Yunnan, who calmed down, returned to the luozhai. His papers and luggage are still in the room. It’s impossible to run away from home because of his encounter in the training room in the afternoon.
The little goldfish who was eating rushed up at the first time, took Shi Yunnan’s hand and shook excitedly, “little uncle, there is fish egg soup today. Shall we share it?”
“Mr. Shi, are you back? Have you eaten? The owner has gone abroad temporarily.” The housekeeper came forward and said.
“I know. I saw the message he sent me.” Shi Yunnan answered quietly.
It’s just that he’s still blocked in his heart and doesn’t want to reply.
Since the other party has white moonlight in his heart, he shouldn’t stick it like this, otherwise he will humiliate himself in the end.
“Are you hungry, little uncle?” Little goldfish didn’t know what happened in the afternoon, but he asked happily.
“No, I’ve eaten out.” Shi Yunnan squatted down and looked at him. “I’m a little tired today. I want to go back to my room and have a rest first. Will you eat well tonight?”
The little goldfish looked at him and nodded.
Until Shi Yunnan quickly went upstairs, little goldfish turned his mouth in disappointment and whispered to the housekeeper, “Grandpa Qin, is my little uncle unhappy?”
Uncle Qin also felt that Luo Lingsheng and Shi Yunnan’s reaction today was not quite right, but in the face of children, he couldn’t say anything more, “it shouldn’t be. Your little uncle is just tired.”
“But he didn’t pinch my face today, and his speech was stuffy.” Little goldfish’s perception has always been keen, “even his favorite fish egg soup doesn’t like it. He must be unhappy.”
“Then you eat well first. When he’s hungry, we’ll go to the kitchen to prepare for him, okay?” The housekeeper carried him back to the table.
After returning to his room, Shi Yunnan sat at his desk and thought about the way to go next.
But it’s a pity that it’s still messy.
His reason told himself that he should keep an appropriate distance from Luo Lingsheng and even terminate the agreement directly in order to stop the loss in time.
But emotionally, he can’t give up.
In less than four months, he had regarded Luo as a short home. Since his mother died, he could really find the second home.
Time passed minute by minute, and it was eight o’clock in the twinkling of an eye.
There was a sudden knock at the door.
The unlocked door was quietly opened, and the little goldfish came in with a covered bowl.
“Little uncle, are you asleep? Can I come in?”
The soft waxy child voice makes people reluctant to refuse at all.
Shi Yunnan subconsciously hooked his lips, “come in, I haven’t slept yet.”
The little goldfish, who had changed into Cat pajamas, ran in and held the small bowl in front of Shi Yunnan, “here’s your little uncle, fish egg soup!”
“Grandpa Qin is too hot to freeze his stomach.”
Shi Yunnan was so soft by the little goldfish’s behavior that he had to suppress his emotions and clap his thigh with a smile, “come on.”
The little goldfish climbed on his lap and sat, “little uncle, you like fish egg soup best. You won’t be sad after eating.”
“Who told you I was sad?” Shi Yunnan poked his dimple with a good touch.
“I saw it myself.” The little goldfish answered.
He raised his cerebellar bag and asked, “little uncle, why are you unhappy? Because uncle is not at home? Grandpa Qin said, he went to see his legs.”
“Well, I know.”
Shi Yunnan doesn’t want to talk about Luo Lingsheng again.
In order to live up to the child’s kindness, he scooped a mouthful of egg soup into his mouth. Just at the moment when the familiar taste filled his mouth, Shi Yunnan suddenly felt unbearable sadness.
When he was a child, he thought he could eat his mother’s fish egg soup for a long time. As a result, he only stayed at the age of seven.
After entering Luo’s house, he ate the first bite of fish and egg soup arranged by Luo Lingsheng. Maybe soon, he couldn’t even eat the taste of this bite.
The little goldfish stared at Shi Yunnan’s Crimson eyes and suddenly seemed to realize something. He wrapped his hands and feet around Shi Yunnan, “little uncle.”
The little goldfish took his small head and rubbed Shi Yunnan. His soft hair made his neck itch.
Shi Yunnan didn’t hide. “Hmm? Why do you stick to me so much?”
“I like my little uncle very much.”
The little goldfish suddenly spoke in his ear. The soft voice was full of seriousness. He paused and didn’t forget to add a sentence——
“And uncle, he likes you too!”
