After hung up the phone, Ji Bai didn’t go back to the VIP room but continued to stay outside to look at Xu Xu and Yao Meng‘s resume while letting the cigarette between his two fingers to burn out.
After a while, a person came out from the VIP room and sat down next to Ji Bai. This person was called Shu Hang, who is a really close friend of Ji Bai. Shu Hang laughed: ”We aren’t done speaking, why have you escaped out here to smoke alone? I’m starting a new company this year, do you want to invest? I’ll give half of the company’s shares.”
Ji Bai closed his phone, curled down his mouth and laughed: ”Did my mom tell you to do this?”
Shu Hang didn’t answer as if admitting it. He half joked and half seriously asked: ”Are you going to stay there forever?”
(* there as in the team where he works; investigation team? Like NICS, team like criminal shows)
Ji Bai twitched his eyes and blew out his cigarette smoke.
Shu Hang thought: Don’t even try to say all those disgusting reasons. Who would have thought that Ji Bai replied: “You aren’t a fish, how would you know the happiness of being a fish?”
(*He is saying that since Shu Hang isn’t doing what he does, he wouldn’t know that the things he does give him what. It is a Chinese proverb, but I don’t know the original.)
Shu Hang laughed:”Oh please. A place where there are a lot of guys and a few girls, you come in contact with criminals all day. What’s so interesting in that?”
“I’m still better than you guys doing nothing all day, but partying and playing around,” Ji Bai smiled faintly.
Shu Hang was dazed. After a long silence, he wasn’t angry and nodded.
“That’s why we’re not interesting at all.” His impression became serious: “If nothing is difficult, it’s too boring. If someone were to hear that you are (the or a) grandson of this family, they will solve your problems for you. I only have to stamp the seal thus someone will say that you’re a genius in business. Even if you want to rely on yourself, people would say otherwise behind your back like how you are only coming this far because your last name is Shu.”
Ji Bai smiled lightly while patting Shu Hang’s back. Shu Hang knew he was being ridiculous, thought of it as nonsense from someone who was drunk.
The two of them smoked for a bit. Shu Hang started to talk: “You aren’t being honest at all. First, you lied to your mom that you joined the police force because of political reasons.”
