Chapter 20 Mid-Year festival
Chu Hong opened the door. “Let’s talk in the car.”
After Lin Qin got in, he turned to watch the villa as it gradually drifted away from his vision. He didn’t look away until it blurred away, before he removed his eyes.
But he didn’t settle down. Looking at the number in his hands he was very entangled. He had a very strong desire to call Meng Chao in his heart, but with his nature, he didn’t make the call.
Chu Hong who was sitting in the passenger seat saw Lin Qin’s tangled expression through the rearview mirror. “If you miss him then why don’t you just call? Why are you feeling nervous when you’re not even face to face with him?”
Chu Hung could understand him feeling nervous when meeting Meng Chao, after all, Lin Qin had obstacles, but not even daring to call him, it was really…
“He’s working, won’t I be disturbing him if I call?” Lin Qin defended himself.
“Alright, alright, call whenever you want to, when the time comes when you’ve drifted apart, don’t sigh in front of me.” Chu Hong complained.
Lin Qin didn’t answer, his white fingers rubbing lightly on the paper where Meng Chao’s contact information was written.
Still didn’t have the courage to call.
Lin Qin, why are you so terrified?
Lin Qin was condemning himself when his phone rang.
The caller displayed a string of numbers that hadn’t been saved, but Lin Qin recognized it as Meng Chao’s number at a glance because it had just been written down.
For a moment, Lin Qin stared at the cell phone in a daze.
Chu Hong just had to look at Lin Qin’s reaction to know that it was Meng Chao calling. She urged: “Won’t you answer it? Movie emperor Meng is calling, won’t it be disturbing his work?”
Lin Qin’s face was red but he still tapped the answer icon carefully.
He just put the phone to the edge of his ear when he heard Meng Chao’s low magnetic voice, “Returning?”
Just listening to Meng Chao’s voice, Lin Qin’s heartbeat was out of order, his chest agitated. His hand that wasn’t holding the cell phone gripped the leather seat.
It took him a long time before he found his voice, and said ‘Hmm’ gently, “I’m in the car.”
Meng Chao returned: “Have a smooth journey.”
Lin Qin opened his mouth but didn’t know what to say, but he was also reluctant to hang up.
After heming and hawing for a moment, Lin Qin said: “Meng Chao Ge, be careful on the way.”
“Okay.” Meng Chao who was waiting at the airport chuckled, his eyes filled with tenderness that even he wasn’t aware of.
Lin Qin was a little anxious. When he looked up, he saw that Chu Hong had used her phone to type the four words the mid-year festival and almost subconsciously blurted out, “Meng Chao Ge, will you be at the festival this year?”
After providing this assistance, Chu Hong smiled, took back her cell phone and made a ‘you can do it’ gesture at Lin Qin.
Lin Qin’s face turned red instantly, nervously waiting for Meng Chao’s reply.
The next moment, Meng Chao’s slightly guilty voice came through, “Lin Qin, I’m sorry, I don’t have time that day.”
“Oh.” Ineffable disappointment spread in Lin Qin’s chest, a long mark appearing on the surface of the leather seat being held by Lin Qin.
Just as Lin Qin was disappointed, Meng Chao added: “But I’ll watch the live broadcast, so you must give a good performance.”
Qin Lin’s eyes suddenly lit up, he nodded: “I will!”
Even he didn’t see Meng Chao, Meng Chao seeing him was also good. Lin Qin was easily satisfied.
