regular chapter >.<
The foreman was a slave tyrant, even on New Year’s Day he does not give the worker some holiday and there is no extra or even bonus on their wages.
But the foreman may also feel uneasy with his conscience, they did not know where, but he got them a bunch of supermarket shopping cards and gave it to the workers.
Jiang Hengshu intends to quickly bring the result of the disappearance case he was commissioned to be resolved.
He casually put the shopping card into his pocket, waited until the foreman left before he went to the canal behind the construction site. The canal was barren, covered with yellow sand and withered grass and there was a green stone standing opposite side of the river.
Jiang Hengshu squatted down and stretched out his hand to push away the weeds in front of him, there was a sound of rustling footsteps behind him and the a man’s low and hoarse voice asked him,
“What are you doing here?”
Jiang Hengshu turned his head and saw the foreman standing behind him, looking down at him condescendingly, a gleam of light flashed in his cloudy eyes.
Fu Zhen stayed in his room in the rental house all day long to draw his unfinished drawings, in the evening he finally finished the colorful illustration that was full of aspirations. He couldn’t help smiling when he looked at the results on the screen.
He did not completely imitate Picasso’s style but added some of his own style in which the characters are also allegorical and not completely abstract.
Picasso used only three color of black, white and gray in “Guernica”, while Fu Zhen took into account the overall style to found balance using some cool color and add a little blood red in the middle which is unexpectedly harmonious.
He just don’t know if his customer will like this style.
Fu Zhen sent the illustration to his customer with anxiety, he naturally hoped that the author would like his work as he like it himself. However although the author told him to do whatever fits it right for him, if the author won’t accept this style he can only try another one that fits the customer’s demands.
It’s just that it was delayed for a few days because of the previous kidnapping and he’s really sorry that the author wasted too much of its time.
Fu Zhen sighed silently,
Forget it, just don’t think about it! Let’s talk about it after the author’s answer.
Fu Zhen rested his head on the pillow and tilted looking at the window, the tall buildings stood tall, the dusk was heavy and the orange-red sunset painted the sky like an oil paint. Fu Zhen retracted his gaze, he was still a little doubtful about what happened last night—was it real or just a dream?
Did Jiang Hengshu really say those words to him? Fu Zhen lowered his head and twisted his hands unconsciously, unfortunately he didn’t see Jiang Hengshu this morning.
He got up a bit late this morning and Jiang Hengshu was already at work when he woke up.
Fu Zhen’s mobile phone rang and the author of the manuscript replies to him, the other party likes Fu Zhen’s color insert very much and asked him if he could make for three more pictures, one picture for each story.
Of course, Fu Zhen would not refuse, he should have two thousand yuan more for those three picture. He thought he could buy another gift for Jiang Hengshu.
Jiang Hengshu returned to the rental house after getting off from work, went back to his room to change into a new set of clothes then walked out of the room with a white plastic bag, went to stand in front of Fu Zhen’s room, raised his hand and knocked twice.
Fu Zhen was looking at the outline of several other stories sent to him by the author, the pen in his hands kept moving when he heard a knock on the door, he put down the pen and got up from the bead, walked towards the door and opened it.
Standing outside the door was Jiang Hengshu, the orange-red glow fell behind him, the glass coffee table and the plastic film on the ground reflecting the light like burning sea of fire.
Jiang Hengshu asked him,
‘’Have you eaten already?”
Fu Zhen looked at him without blinking, opened the door with his right hand, shook his head and said,
He had just been thinking about how to draw the next color insert and completely forgot about dinner.
Jiang Hengshu raises the while plastic bag in his hand with two packing boxes inside and handed it to Fu Zhen,
The packing box contained a portion of xiaolongbao and a portion of preserved egg porridge, he don’t know where Jiang Hengshu bought it but it looks good.
Fu Zhen whispered thank you, his ears were a little hot, he took the bag that Jiang Henghsu handed over and turned sideways, Jiang Hengshu took advantage of the situation and entered his room. The room was still cramped and after the two men came in, the air becomes hot and dry.
Now Fu Zhen is finally sure that what happened last night was not a dream.
The person he likes happens to likes him too, what a wonderful thing.
The light in the room, was turned on and the dimness was driven out in an instant, Fu Zhen place the lunch box on the bedside table, with only a pair of chopsticks inside he bent down like a hamster and pulled out a small box from under the bed and pull out another pair of convenient chopsticks inside.
