Chapter 11 Having dinner together
Lin Qin only felt that his whole person was burning up, he stammered a few times then quickly changed the subject. “Have the material… been delivered?”
When they had gone shopping for the materials yesterday, the boss had promised to sent it over early this morning. They had only one day to decorate, time was of the essence.
When Meng Chao noticed this, in order to not make Lin Qin feel embarrassed, he took a step back without anyone noticing and said calmly, “It should be arriving soon, let’s wait.”
Speak of the devil and he shall appear.
As soon as the Meng Chao’s voice fell, the sound of a horn came from the door. The car delivering the materials from the hardware store had arrived.
It was as if Lin Qin had received a pardon, he ran towards the door. “I’ll go take a look.”
Meng Chao stared at Lin Qin’s back as he fled. How come it was as if he was seeing a little white rabbit running away from the big bad wolf? How cute. Meng Chao couldn’t help but laugh lowly, then immediately followed behind.
Although Lin Qin ran out using the excuse that the car from the hardware store had arrived, he was really at a loss as he faced the store personnel. He didn’t know how to go forward to negotiate.
“Let me.” Meng Chao passed by Lin Qin, his broad palm falling gently on top of his hair for a minute.
Lin Qin turned his head to look at Meng Chao, his gaze moving along with his tall figure, watching him advance and retreat with the staff of the hardware store in negotiation, with a gentle attitude, being polite, not looking even a little bit like his identity as the high and aloof movie emperor.
Yesterday, the two had bought sofas, tables, chairs and other furniture from them and also bought a whole set of kitchen appliances. Now under the command of Meng Chao, they were all moved to the first floor of the villa.
After that, they began to work in an orderly but busy manner. The two had already arranged the division of labor, so when they started the decoration, they moved with very tacit understanding, not interfering with each other, but completing the work in an integrated manner.
Time always moved fast when one was busy.
Twilight gradually rose with the sound of the waves, the golden sunset pouring into the villa through the floor-to-ceiling windows, covering the newly decorated villa in a warm color.
Don’t know if it was because Lin Qin’s design draft was good or because he had done it himself. Looking up, Meng Chao was very satisfied with the decoration of the villa. It was warm and tranquil, making the ones staying in it also feel the warmth and tranquillity.
Arranging the last piece of furniture, Meng Chao sat on the sofa and looked in the direction of Lin Qin. Lin Qin was in the kitchen, still busy, but he didn’t know what he was tinkering with.
The director’s team saw that the two of them had been busy the whole day and for once acted like humans, ordering dinner and sending it to the newly-added table.
“Mr. Meng, it’s time for dinner.” The follow-up PD reminded.
Meng Chao nodded but didn’t walk towards the dining table, instead he walked towards Lin Qin.
The kitchen was an open plan, the ivory-white bar serving as a partition between the kitchen and the dining room. When Meng Chao came over, Lin Qin was squatting under the bar, seriously doing his own thing, not noticing Meng Chao’s arrival.
Meng Chao leaned over the bar and asked, “What are you doing?”
Meng Chao’s deep, magnetic voice sounded above Lin Qin’s head. Lin Qin was startled, hurriedly getting up to look at Meng Chao.
Meng Chao looked up at him, a smile at the corners of his lips.
He asked again, “What are you doing?”
Lin Qin avoided Meng Chao’s aggressive eyes as he answered: “I’m tidying up the kitchen, so tomorrow I’ll be able to use it.”
