At this moment, Xu Yuhua opened the gate and stepped in: ” Professor Zhu? “
Zhu Zhengqing then reminded the initial purpose of his visit: ” By the way, in order to revere winning the lawsuit, the guys in our project team agreed to go out to have a party dinner and travel to the seafood buffet on Nanmen Street. Professor Meng, You helped us so much, We just want to invite you to go with us to show our gratitude.”
Meng Zezhi subconsciously rejected: ” You are being too amiable, it’s just a matter of little push. . .”
Xu Yehua promptly said, ” For Professor Meng, it may be just a matter of effort, but for us, it is no less than rescuing our full project team. Professor Meng is just going with us to have some enjoyment. Anyway sticking around in the laboratory all day is so boring. What do you figure out? “
When he insisted on this degree, Meng Zezhi glanced at Zhu Zhengqing and acknowledged: ” then it’s better to be gracious.”
Zhu Zhengqing’s mood couldn’t help but boost by two points. He said: ” If you have settled, let’s set off now. After a while, the rush times will be off and traffic jams will be easy.”
” Okay.” Meng Zezhi replied, ” Then I will collect the lab first.”
He arranged the laboratory equipment and medicines in order, the exit of the laboratory was sealed by him and the group of three people went directly to the elevator.
Xu Yehua was on the left, Meng Zezhi was on the right, and Zhu Zhengqing was in the center.
On the fourth floor, the escalator door opened, facing a group of decorators carrying the tools. The other side smiled politely and then stuffed in, Zhu Zhengqing backed away with the crowd.
When the escalator door was closed, the mobile phone of the person in front accidentally dropped to the ground, and the person bent over to take it up subconsciously.
His butt pushed on Zhu Zhengqing’s femurs, and probably because of his slim body
Zhu Zhengqing couldn’t stand still and fell backward and his back hit the wall of flesh.
” Sorry, sorry. . .” The man took up the phone, reacted, and atoned.
“It’s okay.” Zhu Zhengqing moved forward, stood straight, and turned around to face a familiar face.
Vaguely, he smelled a familiar aroma of medicine.
Meng Zhezhi’s voice came from his ear: ” You Okay? “
Regardless of the other things, Zhu Zhengqing’s spirit becomes more and more complicated. He poked and squeezed out two words: ” Yes, okay.”
Then slowly receded back.
Meng Zhezhi’s eyes wilted, rubbing his fingers, thinking casually,
His waist is really thin.
Unspoken all the way, when they got there, the other colleagues had already arrived.
Since it’s a celebration dinner, the place scene must be no different. This seafood buffet is considered a relatively high-end inn. Group purchases of 480 people, crabs, geoduck, golden shells, Argentine red prawns, and sashimi are also on site. They cook well all and look pretty good too.
The group directly asked for a private room. Granting that he were taking medicine, Meng Zezhi didn’t hit any raw or cold food. He only desired some crab legs, char-grilled oysters, and apple juice for drinks.
As for other people’s liquors, it is naturally white wine.
” Come here, let’s first pray the professor a drink. I think the professor stayed abroad. I am afraid he has not drunk the white bar much.”
Zhu Zhengqing’s eyes were dim, as if he had decided. He did not hesitate to pick up a glass of wine of jumbo size and slurped it with his head up.
The spicy wine flowed up his head along the throat, stinging his eyes and bringing a little moisture into them.
” Okay,” After several months of hard work and depression, finally they won the lawsuit, it was a an extraordinary excitement, and everyone shouted: ” One More Cup.”
After five or six cups of wine, Zhu Zhengqing’s face got a faint blush and the whole person looks tipsy.
Meng Zezhi looked into his eyes and wanted to warn him, but he couldn’t speak.
He doesn’t have that right.
After a round of booze, the man in glasses took two mouthfuls of seafood oatmeal and barely overcame his drunkenness. Then he got up from his seat, took up his glass and walked towards Meng Zezhi: ” Professor Meng–“
Meng Zezhi stood up immediately.
” Professor Meng, I am really sorry. I was the one who misjudged you before in the laboratory. Please don’t take it earnestly.”
He was talking about falsely blaming Meng Zezhi of stealing their research results in front of everyone he was in the laboratory.
Meng Zezhi didn’t feel resentful. Dragon got caught in a shrimp scene in the shallow water and a phoenix without feathers is worse than a chicken.
It’s just human essence.
What’s more, he still has to stick around in the laboratory. At the moment so many people are watching, the man with glasses confesses so he can just reject him.
Therefore, he can only say amiably: ” It is all past now, but fortunately the matter has been satisfactorily dealt with, isn’t it.”
” I am embarrassed. . .” the man with glasses apologized. ” That’s why I will chastise myself three drinks, it would be an an atonement to Professor Meng.”
As he said, he raised his cup of wine to his mouth and drank it all in one swoop.
After three cups of wine, the man in glasses panted roughly and said, ” I would offer Professor Meng a cup of wine. If it weren’t for you, how could we sit here and celebrate the feast happily now?”
Hearing these words, everyone responded in return, ” We also offer Professor Meng a cup of wine.”
” Everyone is gracious.” Meng Zezhi picked up the apple juice on the table and said, “it’s just that I am in weak health recently, and the doctor told me not to drink…”
” Professor Meng, it is fine.” Everyone didn’t dislike.
After another glass of wine, the man with glasses continued to wander among the people. Meng Zezhi only had one thing to clear up in his mind and that was the foodstuff in his bowl.
Compared with the lively scene around him, he looked a little out of place.
Seeing this sight, Zhu Zhengqing couldn’t help but drank two more cups of wine.
It was more than nine o’clock when they got out of the restaurant.
Xu Yehua and others took out their mobile phones one after another and asked chauffeurs to drive on their behalf or called family members to take them up.
Meng Zezhi led out from the hand of the man in the glasses to help Zhu Zhengqing, who was tipsy and walked on soft steps and sank directly into his arms.
Meng Zezhi held the person in his arms, raised his head, and said to Xu Yehua and others: ” You go first, I will send Professor Zhu back in a while. “
Xu Yehua and the others did not doubt him and said, ” Again trouble Professor Meng.”
Bearcub: O mi god!! Here come the sweet moments. hehe.
