Chapter 10.1: Dinner

That afternoon after work, 《米斯特里》Mistry editorial team gathered together. Editor had booked the seafood restaurant within the vicinity of the office for the dinner. So a large group of them headed over to the restaurant.

Lan Ning was dragged by Apple to get the cake. Although she heard that it was a big cake, after seeing the cake physically, she could not help but sigh. It is indeed a big cake.

“Editorial is a big team. And the authors are also coming, so I ordered the biggest.” Lan Ning and Apple were standing in front of the cash register while waiting for the cake to be wrapped up. “But this is a double layer oh. So if we cannot finished, we can throw them at the editor.”

Lan Ning: “…….”

Did not see that you have such deep resentment against the editor ah……

“Today there will still be author whom would be coming?” Lan Ning is a little curious. Most of the author in 《米斯特里》Mistry are very famous. But she only have met Teacher Xing Xin. She wants to take advantage of the opportunity to get to know a few more, to add value.

“Well, anyway, Teacher Shi Jiu Zai is coming. He had just submitted his draft today, so he is free to come.”

“Oh…..” So Teacher Xing Xin whom have not submitted any draft, he would not have any face to come?

But when she got to the seafood buffet restaurant with Apple, she found that she had underestimated the thick skin of Teacher Xing Xin.

Who is that sitting on the couch relaxing while having a drink if not Teacher Xing Xin!

“Teacher Xing Xin, have you written your draft today?” Lan Ning upon seeing him with the carefree look, got angry. She did not even help Apple with the cake but head directly to chase for the draft.

Yan Ru Yu, holding the glass of lemon juice, slowly shake the glass. He lifted his eyes to glance at her. “Did you not say that I do not have a social life? I think what you said makes sense. Writer cannot sit whole day writing. At times ought to come out and keep in touch with the society.”

Lan Ning look at him: “This can only be said by someone whom sits around and write the whole day, okay? Teacher Shi Jiu Zai had already submitted his draft. What about you?”

Heard his name being mentioned, Teacher Shijiu Zai turned around: “Today is editor’s birthday. On this big day, talking about draft submission will hurt feelings.”

Lan Ning: “…………”

Not mentioned about draft submission hurts more feelings, okay!

She walked towards the direction of the editor and pull her aside: “Editor… why you invited Teacher Xing Xin. He has not even submitted the draft. He has no human rights.”

Editor smiled and said: “I did not invited him. Teacher Shijiu Zai invited him over. And I cannot ask him to go back, right?”

Lan Ning irritability rubbed her hair. She really feels like returning to the company now and pick up a laptop to bring over. And then get Teacher Xing Xin to write otherwise, he is not allowed to eat!

“Editor, Lan Ning, come over and take photo together.” 《米斯特里》Mistry official photographer, Bo Xiao Bian beckoned to them while holding the camera.

Editor patted Lan Ning on the shoulder and said: “Come on. Let’s go and have dinner. You have to believe that even if Teacher Xing Xin did not come tonight, he would not obediently sit at home and write.”

Lan Ning: “………..”

Such thoughts did indeed is a little comforting. He He…..
