Liang who called?”
Xu Xinghe replied simply: “Even if it’s from the king, they have to wait until the game is over.”
“Respect! Team leader, you are becoming more and more like a boss!” Ryan bowed his hands to him, “I’ll bomb1a move in a card game similar to using a trump in bridge of pair of jokers in big 2 it too! How many points is it?”
Xu Xinghe: “…”
Just like that, after several rounds, the game was finally approaching the end.
At this moment, the ringtone of Xu Xinghe’s smart wristband rang again.
After two consecutive phone calls, Xu Xinghe finally stopped hanging up directly, and raised his hand impatiently.
With just one glance, everyone noticed that the face of Team Leader Xu, who was still invincible just now, froze.
Then he put down his cards lightly, and said to everyone, “I’ll be right back, wait for me.”
Then he quickly slipped out of the door.
Outside the door, Xu Xinghe pressed the accept button.
In a flash of light and shadow, Ling Changfeng’s holographic projection appeared in front of him.
“Where are you?” As soon as the video was connected, Ling Changfeng asked, “Just returned to the room?”
“Uh, yes… how about you?” Xu Xinghe asked.
“I just got home and I’m feeding Xiaoqi.” Ling Changfeng said, turning the camera around, Xiaoqi on the screen was happily eating with her tail wagging, while Aaron was guarding her silently.
“How’s Xiaoqi?” Xu Xinghe felt a little sorry.
He got addicted to playing cards and almost forgot his precious Xiaoqi.
“Very… it’s okay.” Ling Changfeng’s tone was stunned, and he changed his tone abruptly, “Just misses you a little.”
Xu Xinghe was stunned: “How does she miss me? I think she’s eating deliciously.”
Ling Changfeng: “It misses you in its heart.”2The sounds for ‘he’, ‘she’, and ‘it’ are the same in Chinese, so XXH doesn’t know who LCF is referring to.
I used the 3rd party neutral ‘they’/’it’ here for LCF to keep it abstract[/mfn]
Xu Xinghe: “???”
He looked at Xiaoqi with a bewildered expression, and then heard Ling Changfeng ask: “What are you doing? Why didn’t you pick up my call just now?”
“Uh…” Xu Xinghe was at a loss for words.
Playing cards wasn’t something he couldn’t talk about.
If it was just a missed call, it would be easy to explain, but it was a bit difficult to explain hanging up Ling Changfeng’s call because he was playing cards.
Team Leader Xu decided to tell a white lie: “I was just taking a shower.”
“En.” Ling Changfeng nodded with an expression that he expected such an answer, and then frowned slightly.
“Why are you standing in the corridor?”
“…” Xu Xinghe had no choice but to continue the lies, “After dinner, I went out for a walk.”
This reason is reasonable, Ling Changfeng nodded and said: “You have been running around for a day, and should rest early after you finish.”
“Okay, okay.” Xu Xinghe released a breath, and hurriedly replied.
“Work must’ve been hard.
You should also go to sleep first.
Before he finished speaking, he suddenly found that Ling Changfeng was looking behind him, his eyes suddenly sharpened.
Xu Xinghe: “?”
He turned his head and found that the door of his room was open, and Ryan stuck his head out of it.
Ryan, who originally wanted to call him back to play cards, turned blue and white when he saw the projection of Marshal Ling in the corridor.
His lips twitched twice, and he completely froze in place.
Xu Xinghe: “…”
The atmosphere suddenly fell into a strange silence.
Ling Changfeng turned his gaze back to his little spouse, and the two stared at each other silently.
Ryan didn’t dare to leave, didn’t dare to stay, so he pitifully froze at the door, maintaining the posture of probing outwards, like a statue.
Perhaps it was because the three of them were deadlocked for too long, so a voice came out of the room again: “Where’s he? Ryan, why are you at the door? Where’s Boss Xu?”
After a few seconds, another head came out of Xu Xinghe’s room, and peeked out from behind the door.
Then, like Ryan, he put on a ghostly expression, and froze into a petrified statue at the door.
Ling Changfeng: “…”
Baby hedgehog is caught red handed!
Guess the card game will have to be disbanded!
