Xu Xinghe woke up feeling uncomfortable.
He’s not that uncomfortable, but it feels like he’s in a daze, and there is an inexplicable sense of heart palpitations and dizziness.
But his temperature is normal and there is no pain.
He didn’t care too much.
Attributing the discomfort to not having a good rest last night, he went to work as usual after having breakfast.
Today is Gamma Galaxy’s Union Day, and the annual state banquet will be held at the Prosperity Palace at 6:30 p.m.
In the early morning, all media outlets began reporting the event, introducing important attendees.
Among them, news of Marshal Ling’s participation spread like wildfire, and suddenly became the focus of public opinion.
Ark’s lounge became lively again.
“Have you heard? Marshal Ling is sure to attend tonight’s state banquet!”
“Then will Xu Xinghe go with him? It didn’t say on the news.”
“Not necessarily, I met him in the parking lot today.
The expression on his face is not very good – if he’s going to the state banquet, why is he still coming to work today?”
“I think he’ll go.
Don’t they have a good relationship? There’s no reason for them not to attend this important occasion together.”
“Because this is an important occasion and Xu Xinghe’s marriage to Marshal Ling is after his divorce, understand? Besides, General Mu will also be there.
Isn’t it embarrassing if they meet?”
“There are hundreds of people, the venue is so big, they may not be able to meet even if they go.
How can there be so many things? And if they do meet, it’s not for sure who’ll be embarrassed.”
“Speaking of which, isn’t General Mu engaged to his little lover? Will he bring his fiancé to the state banquet?”
“Who knows, let’s wait to watch the live broadcast.”
Xu Xinghe’s expression was really uneasy.
His spine is sore and numb, and his limbs were very weak.
He didn’t have energy and didn’t eat much for lunch.
But when he took his temperature and had a quick checkup at the Ark’s infirmary during the lunch break, there were no problems found.
“Team leader, are you alright?”
Ethan paused slightly when he passed by, and pushed up his glasses.
“Are you feeling okay? Why don’t you go back and rest for a while.
There’s not much work anyway.
Just leave it to me, Xiao Zhou, and the others.”
“I’m fine.” Xu Xinghe rubbed his temples and shook his head.
“I’ve been to the infirmary, and the doctor said it’s fine, don’t worry.”
At half past three, Team Leader Xu replied to the last work email.
Seeing that the time was almost up, he turned off his terminal and prepared to leave.
Just as he got up and put on his coat, he heard a commotion outside the door.
As soon as he looked up, the chief secretary appeared at the door and looked at him with a smile.
“Please come with me.”
Xu Xinghe: “…”
Ling Changfeng only said that he would send someone to pick him up, but he didn’t tell himself who it was!
Under the everyone’s thoughtful gazes, Evelyn swiped the card and led him to the VIP elevator, taking it straight up to the top floor of the building.
There is a dedicated parking lot, which is specially prepared to welcome VIPs.
“Please wait a moment, the person who will pick you up will be here soon.” Evelyn said to Xu Xinghe gently.
Sure enough, after waiting for less than two minutes, a familiar black military vehicle appeared in their field of vision.
A tall man with red hair stepped down from the passenger seat.
Xu Xinghe was startled.
He didn’t expect Ling Changfeng to send Colonel Lewis to pick him up.
He was always by Ling Changfeng’s side.
Colonel Lewis nodded at him and said, “Mr.
Xu good afternoon, please get in the car first.”
Then he opened the back seat door for him.
“Thank you.” Xu Xinghe turned his head and was about to get in the car, but when the door opened, he saw Ling Changfeng wearing a solemn and gorgeous military dress, sitting upright in his seat.
Xu Xinghe: “…”
Since getting married, this is the second time he has seen Ling Changfeng dressed so formally.
The first time seemed to be on the wedding night.
At that time, he didn’t actually look carefully at what Ling Changfeng wore.
He only remembered the rows of dazzling medals on his chest.
Just like now.
Ling Changfeng was startled when he saw Xu Xinghe.
There was a sweet pheromone unique to his little spouse.
But it didn’t seem to be the same as usual, and he couldn’t say what the difference was.
“Come up.” Ling Changfeng said, “Qin Yuan has arranged a place, I will accompany you to change your outfit first.”
At five o’clock in the evening, the door of the Prosperity Palace opened.
A 100-meter red carpet spread all the way from the drop-off point to the banquet hall.
Dozens of media outside the door already set up cameras, rushing to report this annual event.
The guests invited to the state banquet began to enter the venue one after another.
Powerful politicians, illustrious generals, well-known scientists, wealthy chaebols…
Elites from all walks of life gathered here to participate in the feast.
5:00 to 6:00 is the admission time.
The media waited for wave after wave of VIP guests.
Seeing that it was 5:50, and most of the invited guests had already entered the venue, everyone finally realized a problem—
What about Marshal Ling??
The last time Ling Changfeng attended the state banquet was more than ten years ago.
Therefore, as soon as the news came out, the media and masses were eagerly looking forward to it.
But the entrance ceremony was about to end, and Ling Changfeng was still nowhere to be seen.
The media stationed outside the door looked at each other and began to discuss in low voices…
Finally, 5:57 in the evening.
Just when everyone was about to see through the autumn waters, a pure black vehicle with the AA00001 plate pulled up.
As soon as Ling Changfeng’s car arrived, the scene immediately boiled.
Countless media aimed their cameras at the car door for the first time, for fear of missing any frame of Ling Changfeng.
The door opened, and Marshal Ling came out in uniform.
But after getting off the car, Ling Changfeng did not walk towards the banquet hall, but went around to the other side of the car.
Under the attention of everyone, he opened the car door in person, bent down gently, and offered his hand.
The person in the car hesitated for a while, but finally took the hand and got out of the car.
There was a moment of silence in the noisy scene.
Even the click of the camera stopped for a moment.
Xu Xinghe was wearing a well-cut black suit, which made his wide shoulders, thin waist, narrow hips, and long legs more stylish.
And more delicate than his dress is his appearance.
Xu Xinghe’s facial features were originally handsome and upright, with a small face and a high nose bridge, and a pair of smart deer eyes.
Appearing in front of the crowd in a suit and leather shoes, he looked dignified and extraordinary.
Xu Xinghe was actually a little speechless.
At first, he naively thought that it was a simple change of clothes.
As a result, when he got out of the car he found that he was greeted by a whole styling team.
Although Xu Xinghe only made one request from the beginning to the end—everything should be kept simple, the entire makeup and hair styling process lasted for more than an hour.
In the meantime, Ling Changfeng didn’t rush it.
He just sat quietly reading documents, and waited until Xu Xinghe was done before leaving.
The moment when the styling was finished and he saw himself in the mirror, Xu Xinghe had to admit that the words “clothes make the man” made sense.
Xu Xinghe considered himself thick-skinned, but he was a little uncomfortable facing so many cameras for the first time.
He tugged at Ling Changfeng’s cuff and whispered, “Let’s go quickly.”
Ling Changfeng paused, glancing at the hand hooked on his forearm, and his adam’s apple rolled.
After a few seconds, the media finally woke up and resumed work.
For a time, lights flashed wildly, illuminating the scene as if it were daytime.
Xu Xinghe pulled Ling Changfeng and walked straight towards the banquet hall.
Of course, in his own opinion, it is “pulling”, but in the eyes of the media, the entire picture is of the marshal’s wife “pulling” Marshal Ling harmoniously!
Use it on the front page of the news tomorrow!
The banquet hall was brightly lit and full of people.
Marshal Ling’s seat was in the front row, so he had to walk for a while after entering the hall.
Along the way, people kept coming up to say hello, but Ling Changfeng just nodded lightly in return, and never stopped.
Xu Xinghe had already put down his hand and walked quietly beside him.
Suddenly he heard Ling Changfeng ask: “Are you feeling uncomfortable today?”
Xu Xinghe was taken aback and said softly, “It’s okay.”
He was not feeling well at first, but since seeing Ling Changfeng in the afternoon, the situation seems to be much better now.
It wasn’t unbearable.
“Tell me if there’s anything.” Ling Changfeng said, “If you’re not feeling well, we can go back early.”
At half past six in the evening, the state banquet started on time.
After the speaker made a speech, it was finally time for the meal that Xu Xinghe was looking forward to.
God knows that one of the reasons why he is willing to come to the state banquet is that as a half-ass chef, he wants to experience the highest standard banquet in the Gamma Galaxy.
And the food of the state banquet did not disappoint him –
Shark fin soup, asparagus and abalone, dry-aged rib-eye steak, black truffle wild mushroom soup…
From the ingredients to the cooking, Chef Xu admitted he was humbled.
The result was…
Xu Xinghe ate too much.
He poked Ling Changfeng next to him with his elbow, and said in a low voice, “I’ll go to the bathroom.”
Ling Changfeng slowly cut the steak with his hands.
He didn’t know why, but today’s Xu Xinghe made him have a special feeling-
He didn’t want to let him out of his sight.
But no matter what, he can’t follow him everywhere.
Ling Changfeng put down his knife and fork and said, “Okay, come back soon.”
Xu Xinghe was not in a hurry to go back so soon.
But what made him confused was that just after he left Ling Changfeng for a while, the uncomfortable feeling came back.
Soreness, dizziness, and a little feverish…
But when Xu Xinghe took his temperature, it was 36.8°C, and there was still nothing abnormal.
In the bathroom, Xu Xinghe dazedly washed his face with cold water, ignoring the light makeup on his face.
Unfortunately, it didn’t work, the dizziness was still there.
So Xu Xinghe decided to go back to find Ling Changfeng.
He instinctively felt that it was safer to be around him.
As soon as he walked out of the bathroom door, Xu Xinghe was stunned.
Mu Qingyun, who was also in a military uniform, stood at the door watching him with a pair of pure black eyes…
Mu Qingyun had just come to the bathroom.
But when he was about to leave, he smelled a faint scent at the door.
Although it was very faint, the aroma seemed to entangle his brain at once, causing him to stop involuntarily.
He always thought that Miles was the existence that best matched his pheromone.
He likes his pheromones.
The smell made him feel relaxed and happy…
But the mastermind gave him a Xu Xinghe, a Xu Xinghe whose pheromone had no smell.
He couldn’t understand and couldn’t agree with the mastermind, so he decided to file for divorce a year later.
Until this moment, he saw Xu Xinghe walking out from behind the door.
A faint omega pheromone emanated from him.
Very faint, but enough to be obsessed…
When Xu Xinghe saw Mu Qingyun, he smeared oil on his feet and turned around and left.
After walking for two steps, his body suddenly froze.
“Mu Qingyun, what are you doing?”
Xu Xinghe turned his head in disbelief.
——Mu Qingyun released his own alpha pheromone.
Xu Xinghe has always been less sensitive to alpha’s pheromones.
Mu Qingyun is one of the few alphas that he can perceive, but this perception does not make him feel comfortable.
For example, at this moment, under Mu Qingyun’s pheromone attack, his dizziness increased.
Dizzy, just want to get out of here.
And Mu Qingyun’s black eyes stared straight at him, which made him a little scared.
Xu Xinghe clenched his right hand into a fist, gritted his teeth and said, “Go away with your unpleasant pheromones! Don’t go crazy in front of me…”
As soon as he finished speaking, he saw Mu Qingyun walking towards him.
“Stop for me!”
Xu Xinghe subconsciously took two steps back…
Bumping into a broad chest.
A deep and gentle aura like the sea surrounded him.
The dizziness slowly receded, as if a hot spring was flowing through the limbs.
He could feel the tolerance, warmth, acceptance of the sea… and the turbulent anger under the calmness.
As soon as Xu Xinghe turned his head, Ling Changfeng stood behind him and put one hand on his shoulder.
“Don’t be afraid, I’m here.”
After that, he looked up like Mu Qingyun.
In an instant, a sense of fear that made Mu Qingyun’s hair stand up and his scalp tingle went straight to his brain.
As if a tsunami slammed onto the shore in the darkness.
And he was so small, so weak in front of this black tsunami that was hundreds of meters high… in the blink of an eye, he was about to be engulfed by the tsunami.
Although they belong to different camps, Mu Qingyun has seen Ling Changfeng many times.
In his impression, the Marshal is always calm and composed.
It is like a dead sea, without waves.
It has never been like this moment, mountain torrents, tsunamis, and thousands of miles of ice-
As if someone coveted the most precious treasure.
