The banquet at the military headquarters ended early, and after the night was a little darker, the event came to an end. As per the usual, Duan Hengye returned to the banquet hall to see off the guests along with Meng Jinhuai. The Southern Star where the marshal’s residence was located was like spring in all seasons, but the temperature difference between day and night was a bit large, so when he stood at the entrance, Duan Hengye felt that the temperature around him had dropped five or six degrees.
Although the important members of the military department also lived in Southern Star, but today, Dongfang You, it wasn’t easy for the little girl to get acquainted with her god a little bit, so of course she was excited. When she was being carried out of the banquet hall by her father, she saw Duan Hengye standing not far away, the little girl waved her hand at him very excitedly.
In the eyes of the surrounding people, Dongfang You was really a capital newborn calf who wasn’t afraid of tigers. After all, in the Southern Provinces, who didn’t know the cold character of the marshal’s spouse… Just when the little girl’s father was hesitating to remind her not to disturb Duan Hengye, he didn’t think that the man standing not far away actually turned around very naturally and waved his hand gently to the little girl.
Duan Hengye actually waved!
No, Duan Hengye actually waved at a little girl? The person who had been secretly poking and observing his movements couldn’t help but stare.
Although outwardly, Duan Hengye was still as cold and indifferent as before, but Dongfang You who received a response was so excited that she buried her face into her father’s embrace. The father standing beside her, Admiral Dongfang, gently touched the little girl’s head at the sight and then nodded slightly in greeting to Duan Hengye. The young girl couldn’t bear to leave, but the Admiral was one of the few people who knew Duan Hengye’s identity, so he guessed he didn’t want his daughter to have too much contact with the other, so the three left after politely greeting.
Almost around the same time, Su Mingge also walked out of the banquet hall at this time. Unlike before, this time he didn’t choose to ignore Duan Hengye, but rather somewhat unusually came over to greet Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai before leaving.
“…Ah-Heng’s health isn’t too good lately, and the Institute over there might have to work hard for a few days for Professor Su first.” Meng Jinhuai looked at Duan Hengye with exceptional tenderness, then said to Su Mingge. They didn’t know if it was an illusion after the words fell, but the surrounding people felt that Su Mingge’s eyes kept lingering on Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai and he looked a bit odd.
But Duan Hengye didn’t need to think about it, Su Mingge was definitely still reminiscing about what had just happened.
It took a short while after Meng Jinhuai finished that sentence before Su Mingge came back to his senses and said, “Ahem… of course it’s no problem.” Even though everyone in the Institute knew that he and Duan Hengye were not on good terms, outside the Institute – especially in the other party’s territory of Southern Star – Su Mingge still knew social etiquette very well. He shook hands with Meng Jinhuai and Duan Hengye in turn, and incidentally also raised his eyes to look at his colleague, then said with stiff politeness, “Uh… then Professor Duan feel at ease and recuperate.” After saying that, he quickly walked into the starship.
“……. “Duan Hengye didn’t want to lend his voice to this.
Although the Military Ministry’s banquet had never allowed reporters to enter the inner court, there was always a large number of media guarding the entrance to the banquet hall when it ended. From the moment the two of them appeared here, several mini hovering cameras had been swirling around Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai.
Compared to the cameras from the Earth era, the size of this hover camera was much smaller and could even be negligible. But for the geeky Duan Hengye, it was still a bit strange to suddenly be filmed by an instrument that was 360 degrees around.
Film Emperor Meng Jinhuai was different.
A night breeze blew in, and the trees outside the banquet hall made rustling sounds. In the same second that he felt the chilly air on his cheeks, a jacket that still had Meng Jinhuai’s heat had been gently draped over Duan Hengye’s shoulders. Duan Hengye was already shorter than Meng Jinhuai, and compared to the other party’s muscles that were distinct but not overly exaggerated, he was a bit thin and weak.
Meng Jinhuai’s black military uniform was draped over Duan Hengye’s body, and the slightly oversized uniform actually gave the person in front of him an aesthetic sense of weakness.
This image was transmitted to millions of households in the interstellar world through the hover camera.
Marshal Meng Jinhuai had unparalleled popularity as well as followers in the Ye Tian Empire, and every time he and Duan Hengye appeared on the Star Network, the live events would have record ratings. In addition to people watching the live news broadcast from their homes with their own light brains, there were even some avid fans from planets that had been recovered by the Marshal who projected the show downtown.
Duan Hengye knew that the hovering camera in front of him was gathering news footage, but he had no idea how many people would actually see this image.
The hall where the dinner was held today was actually part of the Marshal’s Mansion, and after the banquet was officially over, Duan Hengye returned to the interior of the Marshal’s Mansion along with Meng Jinhuai.
Due to the fact that he had been staying in the hospital room for the previous few days, this was the first time that Duan Hengye had looked at the Marshal’s Palace so carefully since he had transmigrated into Dumping Interstellar. Compared to the depressing palace, the design of the marshal’s residence was much more relaxing and not as extravagant.
Walking past the banquet hall, there was the living area.
From the original owner’s memories, it was clear that although the two had been married for a long time, they had always rested in separate rooms. Although he was an undercover agent, the original owner’s cold personality made it so that he would not be the kind of person who could casually make intimate contact with others. It was true that they had a love at first sight romance years ago, but that still didn’t change the fact that they were a political marriage.
They had just gotten married and were actually not familiar with each other, so they naturally lived in two rooms out of habit and respect, and that was until now.
Thinking of this Duan Hengye couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief.
There was no hiding the look in his eyes, and although Duan Hengye tried to act calm, the marshal still read a little curiosity from his eyes. So on the way back, Meng Jinhuai was very interested in telling him about the structure of this marshal’s residence.
It must be said that Meng Jinhuai was indeed a person who could be described as “perfect”. Even in storytelling, he was very good at it.
On the way back to the living area from the banquet hall, Duan Hengye actually listened to the story without realizing it… It was only after seeing the other party’s tenderness that didn’t reach the bottom of his eyes that he shivered, and Duan Hengye pinched his palm hard, telling himself once again…. The man in front of you is Meng Jinhuai! He is the marshal of the empire, a man like a viper who had just been trapped by him and was always ready for revenge.
Duan Hengye’s sanity finally returned.
Although the original owner was unusually slow to emotion, the imperial family had done a little bit of training on this before he married Duan Hengye.
For example … Compared with Duan Hengye, who was eager to get divorced tonight, the royal family had been really worried, whether Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai’s living in different places would cause feelings to fade.
Therefore, when the two were alone, the original owner would always “lure and seduce” the marshal as ordered by the royal family. And from the reaction given by the royal family later, they were also very likely to put other low-level spies around the original owner or Meng Jinhuai to observe their daily getting along.
Probably the original owner’s acting skills were not up to par, or he simply had no talent in pretending to be affectionate. Meng Jinhuai saw his reluctance at first glance, so he, who still had good feelings for the original owner, very considerately rejected the suggestion.
He was waiting for the day when their hearts would connect.
–This was the true way to treat a white moonlight! How could the original owner be so dead! Once again, Duan Hengye couldn’t help but spit out.
Just as the two of them were about to walk to the living area, Meng Jinhuai finally remembered this matter. Although there was still some resistance in his heart, but recalling the miserable situation when the drug seizure occurred a few days ago, Duan Hengye eventually took the same path as the original owner.
Duan Hengye stood on the same spot and slowly took off the military uniform jacket that Meng Jinhuai had matched to him.
“What’s wrong?” Seeing that, Meng Jinhuai somewhat strangely stopped.
…Although Duan Hengye, who had read quite a few dog blood fiction novels in his last life, had made up hundreds of seduction methods in his head in the last second, the moment he saw Meng Jinhuai’s face, he could not help but stop his next action.
Marshal Meng saw that the man on the opposite side of the room handed over this jacket to him with a righteous face. “Thank you for the jacket.” Duan Hengye said very politely.
“It’s fine.” Meng Jinhuai smiled and took the jacket back, “This time it’s because I didn’t pay attention, next time when you go out you must wear some thick clothes.” His words really sounded like the words of a man who cared about his partner.
As the words fell, the two of them finally walked to Duan Hengye’s bedroom.
After reflecting on his embarrassing performance just now in his head, Duan Hengye finally bit his teeth and asked a customary question towards Meng Jinhuai like the original owner, “Where is Lord Marshal resting tonight?”
After hearing Duan Hengye’s words, Meng Jinhuai, who according to the script should have rejected his invitation and walked straight to the other side of the corridor, suddenly stopped. He stood in the same place, then slightly lowered his head in a slightly ambiguous tone and said to Duan Hengye, “Does Ah-heng want me to accompany you tonight?”
Wait…the direction things were going seemed to be a little different from what one had imagined.
Duan Hongyi couldn’t help but cry out in his heart.
Even though he knew that it might fall apart if he refused, but at this moment, Duan Hengye decided to use the fact that he was not well and needed to recuperate to politely refuse Meng Jinhuai. But being in a state of confusion, he was still a step too slow, and before Duan Hengye could say anything, Meng Jinhuai took the lead and walked to the door, he smiled back and said to Duan Hengye, “In that case, I’ll stay with Ah-heng tonight first.”
Actually, it was unnecessary….
After seeing Meng Jinhuai’s expression and the other party’s action of pushing open the door, Duan Hengye finally realized in hindsight – the current himself was no longer the white moonlight of Meng Jinhuai, but a small cannon fodder who wanted to trap the other party out of his own strength. Meng Jinhuai, who had no feelings for him anymore, no longer had to take care of him all the time like before.
The bedroom’s dark wood-colored door was slowly pushed open by Meng Jinhuai, and the sensor light then lit up, the thick beige wool carpet and the huge bed in the middle of the bedroom appeared in front of Duan Hengye’s eyes. At the same time, Duan Hengye’s right eyelid jumped violently.
