Chapter 81 – Couple Outfits (31.1)

After a short rest, Duan Shu Tong took a deep breath and opened the door to go out.

Xi Duan was already waiting in the corridor. His tall figure blocked some light. When he saw Duan Shu Tong, his expression subconsciously softened, and he stepped forward to greet him.

“Where are Cen-ge and Liu-ge?”

Xi Duan’s eyes looked away to a wall lamp in the corridor. He said, “They went ahead to the restaurant.”


The two men walked to the elevator side by side. When they reached the elevator, they both reached out to press the button at the same time. Halfway through, Duan Shu Tong realized that something was going to wrong, but he couldn’t stop his hand in time, and he ended up pressing against the back of Xi Duan’s hand.

As if he got burned, he quickly withdrew his hand.

The elevator door opened. Duan Shu Tong went in first. Xi Duan quietly rubbed the back of his hand where a trace of Duan Shu Tong’s warmth remained. Then he pretended that everything was normal and also stepped into the elevator.

The restaurant was on the third floor of the hotel. The elevator started to descend.

In an enclosed space, people’s senses were amplified.

He could clearly hear the light breathing sounds of the person beside them. The scent on the other person’s body was not as heavy as cologne. Rather, it was the light fragrance of bamboo.

Duan Shu Tong pretended to inadvertently move to the side. He thought he was doing it secretly, but Xi Duan took note of all this movements.

Xi Duan’s arms drooped listlessly to his sides, and even the place where he had just been touched became colder.

When the elevator door opened, neither of them moved. They both wanted to politely wait for the other to get out first, but ended up in a deadlock.

Duan Shu Tong: “…”

When was this strange atmosphere between them going to end?!

There were already many people in the restaurant. Most of them were dressed in suits and leather shoes, and they all look like elites. The two men walked in, attracting the attention of many people.

Attractiveness was one aspect, but mostly it was because of Xi Duan’s face.

There were many people who wanted to come over and climb the ladder by making friends [with Xi Duan]. But recalling Xi Duan’s cold and stiff style, they shrunk back in hesitation, not daring to approach.

What if President Xi got angry over his dinner being interrupted?

As for the person next to President Xi, he was probably the new assistant, right? He looked pretty good.

Big bosses rarely paid attention to things other than business. Although Duan Shu Tong was here representing the Duan family, he has never appeared in public events like this, so it was normal for others to not know him.

The two chose to sit by the window and ordered food in silence. Just after ordering, a man in his forties came over with a cup in his hand.

He was wearing a simple casual suit with a very refined temperament. When he saw Xi Duan, he raised his glass slightly. Then he smiled at Duan Shu Tong, and asked, “May I join you at your table?”

Duan Shu Tong thought the man looked a bit familiar, but he couldn’t quite place his finger on it.

Xi Duan nodded lightly and introduced the two of them: “This is President Jiang of NT. This is Duan Shu Tong, the director of the R&D Department of the Spring and Autumn Hall.”

So it was him!

Duan Shu Tong humbly got up and stretched out his hand, “It’s a pleasure to meet, and I would like to thank President Jiang for the help before.”

Jiang Sheng shook hands with him and praised him with a smile: “Director Duan is young and promising. It is an honor for NT to cooperate with your company.”

After mutually complimenting each other over business matters, they sat down with a smile.

Jiang Sheng was a relatively talkative person. With him around, the awkwardness between Duan Shu Tong and Xi Duan when they were alone together dissipated a lot.

As for Duan Shu Tong, he wasn’t really a young man on the inside, so it was quite pleasant for him to chat with Jiang Sheng.

Not far away, a few people gathered together, looked at the three of them, and whispered: “Who is the young man who came with President Xi?”

At first, they thought he was just an insignificant assistant, but the atmosphere among the three people as they conversed didn’t seem like that.

“I rarely see President Xi traveling with others. I heard that the relationship between the Duan family and the Xi family is good. Could that be Chairman Duan’s son?”

“That’s very likely.”

Zou Feng, the CEO of Cuckoo Company, was shocked when he heard that, and he quickly asked, “He’s the young master of the Duan family? The one from the Spring and Autumn Hall?”

“Yes. What’s the matter?”

Zou Feng then asked, “Is the one next to him Jiang Sheng from NT?”

A person restrained their laughter and ridiculed him, “President Zou, you don’t even recognize people that are in the same business as you?”

Cuckoo and NT were competitors in the same industry. Cuckoo was a well-known old timer while NT was a rising star. They each had their own good points. However, lots of people felt that Cuckoo has been a bit flighty in recent years and it was not as elevated and aloof as it was before.
