Sickness comes like a landslide but goes slowly like a spinning silk.
Although Min Yu only caught a cold, it took him a week to recover.
Fortunately, it was the day of his birthday that he got better.

A few years ago, Min Yu asked Ren Yiqing to tell the employees below him that he would only accept blessings and not gifts on his birthday, and this year is the same.
But to celebrate, he invited all employees in the company for lunch.



At noon, Min Yu spent time in the ancestral house of the Min family.
Before being with Shao Mingwei, he would go back to visit his mother every week.
But later, both of them had their whole piece of time going out on a date, so there were too few opportunities.
If it happens to be on the weekends, Min Yu would apologize and tell the old lady that he could not go back.
At first, the old lady thought it was due to work, but it became frequent.
In addition to that, when he was back in the ancestral house the number of times he checked his phone had noticeably increased so the Old Lady Min couldn’t sit still.
She didn’t ask Min Yu directly, rather she looked for an opportunity to ask his older sister Min Nan.

As soon as the old lady asked about it, Min Nan thought of Qi Jingchun’s tutor, Shao Mingwei.
But she wasn’t sure how the things between the two of them were, so she wasn’t so clear about what to say. 

The old lady was a little disappointed.
She knew that her son’s sexual orientation was special, and she was a little shocked and sad when she first learned about it, but she herself is intellectual and well-informed.
It didn’t take long for her to accept it.
For so many years, she only knew of one object her son talked about in college.
Later, that object got married, and she never saw him have the idea of dating again.


Mother Min believes that she is not a parent who pressures her child to marry.
She knows that young people nowadays want to find someone who they can communicate with.
Therefore, when Min Yu was in his twenties, he was busy with his career, and Mother Min did not rush him.
However, after he turned thirty-five, she was a little anxious.
She has been spoiled by the old chairman Min all her life and has a very happy married life.
She feels that her son should not miss the life of mutual support of his beloved.
Although it’s good to be single, it’s inevitable to feel lonely.
Moreover, the old lady understands Min Yu well and knew that her son on the surface was professional, independent, and decisive at work but he was actually a soft-hearted person who in his heart wanted to rely on someone.
She was afraid that her son was hurt by his first love, but she was also worried that she dared not ask him too much.
She could only hold it in her heart that sometimes it would make her sleepless at night, sighing in despair.

Mother Min always thinks that now she’s over seventy years old.
How many years can she still live on? But her son was still alone.
Thinking about it, she started to wipe her tears.

Therefore, after eating at noon and the guests dispersing, seeing Min Yu smiling and holding his phone while typing, Mother Min finally couldn’t help but ask him carefully, “Son, are you… talking to your boyfriend?”

Min Yu caught a glimpse of it from his peripheral vision and nodded slightly with shyness and a smile in his eyes. 

The surprise came that caught everyone unprepared.
The old lady was stunned for a while before asking, “Who is this person? What does he do? Is he good?”

“His name is Shao Mingwei.
He is very good, really tall and handsome, and he treats me well…” When Min Yu described Shao Mingwei, he subconsciously became happy, but hesitantly said afterward, “He’s… a student of Q University.”

“University student, ah…” The old lady originally felt gratified when she saw her son was very happy, but when she heard the word student, she immediately frowned, “Isn’t it… too young? Isn’t he planning to cheat you, ba?”

Min Yu explained, “He’s not that kind of person.
If you don’t believe it.
Ask my sister.
She has met him before.” 

The old lady turned her head, not caring about Min Nan’s perfunctory words before, and asked, “Is it true?”

“…” Min Nan glared at Min Yu, and then said to her mother, “Xiao Shao is indeed a good boy.
He taught Jingchun make-up lessons before.
He is diligent and honest.
He doesn’t look like a man who is greedy for money.”

The old lady couldn’t completely dispel her worries, but seeing that both sisters and brothers had high evaluations, she could only say, “That’s very young.
I’m not at ease.
Are you planning to bring him back to meet us?”

Min Yu said with a smile, “I asked him, and he said he would listen to me.
But I want to wait until he graduates from college.
Bring him back for you to see.” 

“Alright, he’s still young, anyway.” The old lady nodded sensibly and was relieved when she heard that her son’s partner did not seem to resist meeting the parents, but she still warned, “Son, mom hopes that you can find someone you like that can make you happy, but I also hope that you will love yourself the most, so don’t be stupid in this regard.”

Min Yu was moved by his loving mother’s thoughtfulness and care, though he also couldn’t help but find it a little funny.
He couldn’t help but coquettishly say, “Mom, just where were your thoughts wandering to? I am very happy now.”


Mother Min had a smile on her face as she stroked his cheek.
“That’s good.”

In the afternoon, the company had a meeting with Chiwei’s personnel, and Xiao Luoyuan was among them.
Min Yu found it a bit strange to see him in the company because with his position and Xiao Luoyuan, there was no need to attend this kind of meeting.
But he didn’t think much about it, he just thought that Xiao Luoyuan attached great importance to the cooperation with Huaining or had nothing to do. 

When it was time to get off work, Min Yu remembered that Shao Mingwei said he would come to the company to pick him up, so he quickly packed up his things, informed Ren Yiqing, and left.

He walked on the front leg, while Xiao Luoyuan that knocked on the door of the secretary’s office was on the hind leg.”Secretary Ren, what about your president?”

Ren Yiqing glanced at the exquisite gift bag in his hand, and said with a professional smile, “Our president Min had left just now.
Maybe he’s still in the elevator.”

“Thanks.” Xiao Luoyuan left like a gust of wind. 

He walked to the entrance of the exclusive elevator but saw that the number on the display screen on its side was decreasing.
It happened that the door of another elevator next to him opened, so he hurriedly walked in.

Xiao Luoyuan glanced at the gift in his hand and wanted to sigh a little.
He had a good impression of Min Yu the first time he saw him.
He could feel that Min Yu had the same sexual orientation.
After meeting a few times later, he discovered that Min Yu did have many advantages, gentle and beautiful, good-tempered and charming, serious and attentive at work, and most importantly, he likes him.
However, whether Min Yu is good or not, it can’t be denied that he puts some distance between people.
Although he is polite and gentle on the surface, he seems to not understand or deliberately pretends to not understand, so this invisible layer of estrangement between them can’t be erased.

Xiao Luoyuan has always been successful in the field of love, but this time he began to doubt his charms.
But he is not someone who gives up easily, and Ma Jialiang vowed to guarantee him that Min Yu is a single person, so he still wants to try.
Xiao Luoyuan wanted to ask Min Yu out on his birthday earlier, but he didn’t expect that the other party had already made an appointment.
Xiao Luoyuan thought it would be great to meet and give him a gift that would please him.

Just thinking about it, the elevator’s door to the parking lot to the second floor opened.
Xiao Luoyuan walked fast and then saw Min Yu in the distance.
He immediately followed behind, but before he could get close, he saw Min Yu trotting into the arms of a tall man who had his arms open.
Just by the looks on his back, you can figure out how happy he is. 

Xiao Luoyuan’s footsteps paused.
He turned around and hid behind the pillar next to him, slightly stretching out his head to look.

He recognized the person hugging Min Yu.
He had seen him next to Min Yu’s side in the hospital twice before, but he didn’t care much about it.
He saw Min Yu stretch his body, raised his head, and kissed the boy’s lips, then the boy said something and Min Yu buried his head into the boy’s arms in embarrassment.

Where can you see the polite estrangement? You can only see the happiness and squeamishness of being passionately in love.

Xiao Luoyuan mockingly thought to himself: It turned out that it was not that the person didn’t understand, rather because it already had an owner, and no matter how good it was, it belonged to someone else.
He saw a trash can next to the pillar, shook his head, and threw the thing in his hand.
He put his hand in his pocket and pretended to be open-minded.
He whistled, turned, then left. 

Shao Mingwei opened the door of the co-pilot seat then looked in the direction of Xiao Luoyuan with some sense of recognition as he saw a vaguely familiar-looking figure passing by, then he thought pensively.

Min Yu asked curiously, “Mingwei, what’s wrong?”

Shao Mingwei came back to his senses and smiled.
“It’s nothing.”
