Chapter 6 Personal Decoration
The salty sea breeze blew, the tall coconut trees cast mottled tree shadows. On the soft yellow sand small hermit crabs passed by hurriedly, and only the sound of thunderous slapping of the sea waves on the shore was heard in their ears.
Under the warm sunlight, there were several seagulls flying through the deep blue sky where the water and sky meet, and there seemed to be a cruise ship sailing in the distance, reflecting a tall silhouette.
All this seemed very relaxing and cozy, but when Meng Chao and Lin Qin entered the villa, the leisurely and carefree image broke like a mirror, becoming gray.
The villa was empty, no furniture could be seen and the walls were white without any decoration. Everything in sight, the bare and naked scene told Meng Chao and Lin Qin that this villa that looked sub-tropical on the outside, was in fact, just an embryo.
The director said in a timely manner, “This villa is your future home. In order to make the villa look more like a home, please, decorate this villa according to your own preferences. One more thing, the program group has limited funding, so please take it easy.”
Meng Chao: “….”
Lin Qin: “….”
Didn’t he just say that they should decorate the villa? Then why the f*ck was there limited funding!
The director seemed to not see Lin Qin and Meng Chao’s speechlessness, continuing: “In order to get the show running smoothly, please finish the decoration of the villa before dark tomorrow.”
Meng Chao asked: “Can we hire workers?”
Director: “Yes, but the workers’ expenses are included in your decoration funds.”
Meng Chao gritted his teeth. “Alright.”
The director’s crew had made up their minds to make things difficult for him and Lin Qin, what else could they do?
Lin Qin gently pulled the corner of Meng Chao’s clothes. Meng Chao turned to look at Lin Qin and like a child caught doing something bad, Lin Qin suddenly withdrew his hands, a little uncomfortable.
“What is it?” Meng Chao asked softly.
Lin Qin whispered: “What kind of style does Senior Meng like? You can tell me, I… I studied interior design in university.”
Meng Chao was a little surprised, then said trustingly: “Then I’ll leave the designing plan to you. I didn’t expect you to be so awesome.” He hadn’t expected that Lin Qin had studied interior design, after all, Lin Qin’s major and his current career didn’t match.
Receiving praise from his male god, Lin Qin’s eyes lit up at once. He nodded heavily. “I won’t disappoint senior!”
Meng Chao looked at Lin Qin’s eyes and only felt that today’s sunshine had become even more brilliant.
After that, the two began to talk about the design plan. Meng Chao spoke about his favorite style and Lin Qin recorded it carefully, very piously, as if he was completing a God-given task.
Meng Chao turned his head to see Lin Qin’s serious expression and suddenly stopped talking.
Lin Qin looked up, his face red, his eyes still full of hidden excitement from just now. “Senior, what’s the matter?”
Meng Chao finally couldn’t help reaching out to pat Lin Qin’s hair gently. It felt better than he had imagined. However, in order not to cause Lin Qin to feel uncomfortable, Meng Chao withdrew his hand.
Meng Chao didn’t give Lin Qin the time to react and asked, “What about you?”
