Tuesday morning at half past eight.
The black military brand speed car galloped on the express air track.
Ling Changfeng was in the back seat of the military vehicle, closing his eyes and resting.
Xu Xinghe was sitting beside him, but he had already started replying to work emails.
Xu Xinghe: “Whats the situation Werent all bugs in the Z system repaired yesterday”
Ethan: “An error was reported again early this morning.
Fortunately, it was only a small-scale system crash, otherwise Mr.
Liang would definitely call you to work overtime.”
Ryan : “Youre wrong Ethan, I dont think President Liang will call our team leader in the middle of the night even if he rushes to Ark to work overtime himself.”
Ryan: “What if he disturbs Marshal Lings rest Then the problem is serious!”
Xu Xinghe: “…”
Xu Xinghe: “Seeing that you are so busy, I will leave the investigation work to you today @Ryan”
Ryan: “What investigation A comprehensive investigation of the system crash”
Xu Xinghe: “Yes”
Ryan: “Me alone”
Xu Xinghe: “Bingo, work hard”
Ryan wailed: “How can this be done!”
Xu Xinghe: “I dont care, you can do it yourself”
Ryan: “…Team leader, Brother Xu, Dad Xu”
Xu Xinghe: “Hey, eldest son, whats the matter”
Ryan: “I was wrong.
I didnt know you would be shy.
I wont talk about the private affairs between you and Marshal Ling again.
Dont remember this villain.
Let me go this time.”
Xu Xinghe: “…”
Xu Xinghe: “Focus on your own happiness.
If you cant finish the investigation before you get off work, youre finished :)”
Xiao Zhou: “Team leader, where have you been The main program of the Z server has just been attacked by hackers.
Liang asked the team leaders to come to the A1 meeting room on time at 9:00.”
Xu Xinghe: “ Hackers are getting up so early now.”
Ajia: “Is this the point = = The point is that todays hackers are too uncivilized, and do something like this! Im busy again today.”
Xu Xinghe: “…Im almost there, there are still ten minutes left.”
“Are you busy with work today”
Xu Xinghe turned his head at the male voice, only to see Ling Changfeng still in his seat with his eyes closed.
He probably heard the sound of typing.
“Im very busy.
Theres a lot of things going on in the Ark recently that require my attention this morning.” Xu Xinghe said.
“Yeah.” Ling Changfeng responded lightly and asked, “Why did you still bring medicine”
“Oh, that” Xu Xinghe pointed to the medical bag He Han had prepared before going out in the morning.
But seeing that Ling Changfeng didnt open his eyes, he put down his hand and explained, “Didnt I mention to you last night that I accidentally spilled hot coffee on a colleague A little burn medicine.”
Ling Changfeng nodded and commented: “You care about your colleagues very much.”
Xu Xinghe: “Uh, thank you for the compliment”
Is he complimenting him
Ling Changfeng: “…”
He opened his eyes and turned his attention to Xu Xinghe.
Xu Xinghe blinked at his inexplicable expression.
“Whats wrong Isnt caring and helping each other courtesy among colleagues”
Ling Changfeng looked at him, speechless for a while, and after a while he said: “Youre right.”
Xu Xinghe: “”
“Do you have time this weekend” Ling Changfeng asked.
Xu Xinghe nodded and said, “Yes, whats the matter”
“There is a party.” Ling Changfeng said, “At six oclock on Saturday night, you can come with me.”
Xu Xinghe asked curiously, “What party” Ling Changfeng didnt look like someone who would go to a party.
Marshal Ling replied, “School reunion.”
Xu Xinghe was slightly startled: “Your military academys school reunion”
Ling Changfeng nodded.
“Then why are you asking me” Xu Xinghe asked.
Ling Changfeng glanced at him and replied indifferently: “Everyone brings their family members.”
Xu Xinghe: “…”
He repeated the word “family” in his throat, as if it had a different feel.
Xu Xinghe continued to ask: “What do you usually do at parties Chat and drink Discuss military affairs”
He remembered that the military department had relevant confidentiality regulations.
Even Mu Qingyun would not discuss important military and political matters even in front of Miles.
“Chatting, no drinking.” Ling Changfeng replied.
“We wont talk about confidential matters.”
“So its just chatting” Xu Xinghe didnt believe it.
“But I dont have anything to talk about…”
“Its okay, they have topics.” Ling Changfeng added, “Qin Yuan will be there.”
Xu Xinghe whispered in a low voice, “Can you allow me to think about it again”
Ling Changfeng looked at him.
“Taking care of each other and helping each other – this is also courtesy between spouses.”
Xu Xinghe: “…”
He didnt understand Ling Changfengs meaning.
Going to the class reunion helps him
“In exchange—” Ling Changfeng spoke again, with a light tone.
“You can call me if you have any gatherings in the future.
If I have time, I can try to help.”
Xu Xinghe: “…”
Theres no need.
This is not an equivalent exchange project, okay
While they were talking, the car they were riding already entered the Ark.
Xu Xinghe thought for a while, and waved to Ling Changfeng before getting out of the car: “Then Ill help you out.
Lets go together on the weekend.”
As expected by Team Leader Xu, work was extremely busy all day.
From the meeting in the morning, to the decision to conduct a comprehensive investigation and repair of the system, to assigning to various departments…
Xu Xinghe is the kind of person who will devote himself fully to his work when busy.
After the meeting, he simply stayed in front of the terminal, and even lunch was eaten casually at the desk.
He was so busy till 6:50pm.
Xu Xinghe moved his sore shoulders, and finally got up and closed the terminal.
Then he saw the medical bag he put in the corner, and couldnt help but secretly sighed deeply.
How could he forget he promised to invite someone to dinner tonight!
But he also said hed look for him, so why didnt he see anyone
Was he also working overtime
Just when Xu Xinghe was wondering whether to wait any longer, there was a knock on the door of the office.
Xu Xinghe: “Please come in.”
The door was slowly pushed open, and a young man with rimless glasses walked in.
Xu Xinghe was taken aback: “Gu Nai”
Today, Gu Nai changed into a light pink plaid shirt, was wearing a pair of white washed jeans, and was carrying a computer bag, fitting into peoples stereotype of programmers.
With his thin and fair complexion, height, and thick black hair, he looked a bit like a student.
“Team Leader Xu.” Gu Nai nodded at him with a smile.
“I saw you were busy earlier, so I didnt dare come to disturb you.”
“Its okay, its all over, lets go.” Xu Xinghe picked up his jacket and draped it on his shoulder.
“Have you decided where to eat”
Gu Nai said, “There is a hot pot restaurant nearby.
Do you like hot pot”
Xu Xinghe said, “Thats okay.
I like it quite a bit.”
Then he said slowly.
But that store seems to be very popular, so lets go here…”
Gu Nai smiled: “It doesnt matter, I made an appointment in advance.”
Xu Xinghe nodded: “OK , then lets go.
Oh, by the way, this is for you—”
He handed the medical bag to Gu Nai.
Gu Nai was slightly startled: “This is”
“The medical bag contains burn medicine.” Team Leader Xu touched his nose.
“Are you okay What about the spot that was scalded yesterday”
“Im fine.” Gu Nai looked at him, a smile slowly formed on his lips.
