130 Having Guests Part two

    "Xiao Xian, you know Huazhong and Wenqing?" Hong Chenghai asked out of curiosity.

    After they exchanged greetings, Hong Chenghai couldn't hold back anymore and asked this question; the two middle-aged men beside him also peered at this young man curiously.

    "Hehe. I've known them for a while now!" Chu Xian laughed.

    "That's good, that's good. Young people should spend time together. Let me introduce you. This is Huazhong's father, and this is Wenqing's father," Hong Chenghai replied.

    "Hello, uncles. How are you?" Compared to Hong Chenghai, the fathers of Huazhong and Wenqing were a little older.

    "Mr. Chu, I've been hearing your name a lot lately, and today we finally get to meet! And you're friends with Huzhong and Wenqing as well - this must be fate!" Li Huazhong's father smiled at Chu Xian and Li Huazhong.

    From the way that they spoke, it was clear Mayor Hong and this young man were close, so it couldn't hurt for his son to be friends with Chu Xian!

    "Uncles, please, you are too polite. Huazhong and Wenqing are my good friends!" Chu Xian replied quickly, shaking his head awkwardly.

    "Haha, that's right. There's no reason to be so formal. I even call Xiao Xian my brother!" Hong Chenghai chuckled. "That's right, Xiao Xian. Are you waiting for someone? Why don't you have lunch with us?"

    "I'm taking out some of my college professors. Oh, they're here!" Chu Xian spotted President Wang and a group of twenty-some teachers walking over.

    Unbeknownst to him, President Wang also noticed Chu Xian and the other bystanders. He thought they looked somewhat familiar.

    President Wang walked over more quickly, and after a brief glance, Professor Zhu was stunned as well. After shaking himself from his daze, he hurriedly stepped forward.

    "Hehe, Mayor Hong, Director Ge, Director Li!" President Wang came over and hurriedly called out a greeting.

    "Oh, President Wang. I didn't know Xiao Xian was inviting you to lunch, haha, what a coincidence!" Hong Chenghai laughed.

    "That's right, that's right. Xiao Chu is pretty good - so successful at such an age. Today, he invited us teachers to lunch. Ay, I never thought Xiao Chu and Mayor Hong would know each other!" President Wang laughed along, glancing sideways at Chu Xian with some surprise.

    "Haha, I've known him for a while now!" Hong Chenghai nodded.

    "President Wang, the table is ready. Please!" Chu Xian gestured politely.

    "Xiao Xian, Big Brother Hong!" Xiao Ying called out as she arrived with the rest of the teachers. It was clear they all recognized the group of figures beside Chu Xian.

    "Haha, Little Sister Xiao Ying is becoming more and more beautiful. Are you a teacher at Hai Qing Standard? Not bad, not bad." Hong Chenghai praised her.

    "En, I'm just starting!" Xiao Ying smiled.

    President Wang was surprised again. Xiao Ying addressed the mayor so casually that it was clear their relationship was deeper than it appeared.

    "Let's go. We shouldn't just stand here and block the way - let's head in!" Hong Chenghai called out to the twenty plus people all milling around the entrance.

    "Yes, yes!"

    "Xiao Xian, is this your girlfriend? She's very beautiful!" Li Huazhong and Ge Wenqing came over again, smiling politely at Xiao Ying.

    "Of course!" Chu Xian put his arm around Xiao Ying's shoulder.

    "Bro, when did you meet Mayor Hong, and how are you so close to him? I never imagined! In the future, us brothers will have to rely on you," Ge Wenqing whispered.

    "Heehee. I've known him for a while now."

    Chu Xian chuckled then stepped forward. "President Wang, over here, over here."

    "Xiao Xian, come and eat with us. It's been so long since we drank together." Hong Chenghai called out again.

    Chu Xian looked at Xiao Ying then nodded. "Alright, President Wang, you all enjoy. Excuse me for not accompanying you."

    "Haha, Xiao Chu, go eat with the mayor. I'll come by with a toast later." President Wang smiled.

    Chu Xian nodded at Xiao Ying then walked over to Hong Chenghai's room.

    "Xiao Ying, you have a pretty good boyfriend. You should cherish him!" President Wang murmured to Xiao Ying as he watched Hong Chenghai's group walking away.

    "I will, President. Xiao Xian is very good to me!" Xiao Ying smiled happily. Since her boyfriend was successful, she was happy for him.

    "Haha, okay. Let's sit, let's sit. Let's eat. You'll have to help us express our gratitude to Xiao Xian and thank him for the invitation." President Wang laughed. "Come see me if you have any trouble at work, or ask Professor Zhu. Hehe, Hai Qing Standard needs more young blood like you!"

    "Thank you, President. I'll work hard!" Xiao Ying nodded.

    The teachers around the table were all a little jealous in their hearts. Since Xiao Ying had such a capable boyfriend, no one would dare to offend her, and even the President would treat her well.

    "Xiao Xian, I heard you started a company. What are you planning for the future?" Once they were seated, Hong Chenghai leaned over and asked.

    "Some restaurants, maybe some designer aquariums. I'm opening an aquarium store downtown in a couple days!" Chu Xian replied.

    "Oh? The restaurant business, huh. I still can't forget the taste of your dried fish; my wife and kids asked me for more, haha. I'm a little embarrassed." Hong Chenghai chuckled. "How confident do you feel? Do you need me to help you with anything?"

    "No need!" Chu Xian shook his head confidently. "I can make the company successful."

    Hong Chenghai nodded: "Okay. How are you these days with the ornamental fish?"

    "I've sold all the Arowana, and it'll take a year or two for the baby fish to grow," Chu Xian replied.

    "Hehe, alright. If you need any help, just ask. As long as it doesn't cross any lines, I'll help you out!" Hong Chenghai said directly.

    "Haha, I'll remember your words, Brother Hong. En, to pay you back, how about I send over some catties of dried fish?" Chu Xian laughed. "This doesn't count as a bribe, does it?"

    "Haha!" Hong Chenghai laughed. "You brat, the government hasn't returned the favor you did for us yet. Come, come, let's drink!"

    As they talked, Li Huazhong and Ge Wenqing's father joined in and they all talked happily.

    Li Huazhong and Ge Wenqing couldn't help but admire Chu Xian's abilities, and the teachers in the other room all praised Xiao Ying for her steadfast love with Chu Xian while commenting about how they were committed to their young love, were loyal, and were an example for everyone to learn from.

    When Chu Xian left the room and saw the situation, he smiled. Xiao Ying wouldn't have any problems at work in the future.
