After Cheng Jun hung up, he instantly made a call to Ruan Jiujiu but only received the voice prompts "Sorry, the number you dialed is power off".
He took his coat and directly called a taxi to the airport and checked her flight number.
Ruan Jiujiu almost fell asleep.
She felt herself had slept for a long time, but the plane still didn't take off.
At this moment, the announcement sounded. A soft female voice: "Dear passengers, because of the sudden snowstorm in our destination, we have to cancel the flight. We are so sorry for any inconvenience caused by this..."
After the broadcast, the surrounding passengers complained one after another. Perhaps no one expected this to happen.
Generally, the airlines will informed their passengers of the cancellation a day early. But now, this was all happening so fast. How could they change their flight schedule? Needless to say, other flights to H city must have been canceled as well.
Ruan Jiujiu was also out of her wits.
The first thing she thought was that Cheng Jun shouldn’t be trapped there.
The flight attendant still comforted everyone softly. The passengers had to accept this. After all, weather was an uncontrollable factor. Ruan Jiujiu pulled out her mobile phone and intended to cancel the flight and go home to sleep.
As soon as she turned on his phone, she saw Cheng Jun's messages.
"I'm not on business trip."
"Get off the plane before taking off."
"I saw the flight was canceled. Where are you?"
"I'm at the airport now."
A series of messages from Cheng Jun really scared Ruan Jiujiu. But then she immediately realized something—Cheng Jun didn't go on a business trip? So what the hell he was doing? Ruan Jiujiu ground her teeth.
She followed other passengers off the plane and called Cheng Jun.
After walking outside, she saw the snow was falling from the sky and then shivered. There had been all white on the ground.
Her mobile phone showed that she had dialed the number, but before being connected, it, with a beep, just died because of the low temperature.
Ruan Jiujiu: "! ! ! "
Shit! She didn't bring a charger!
At this moment, Ruan Jiujiu really wanted to use bad language. She quickly walked towards the airport, praying that she could borrow the charger later.
When she returned to the hall, she realized that Cheng Jun was nowhere to be found in the crowd. Ruan Jiujiu had to try to restart her phone. Fortunately, there was still 5% of the battery power, which successfully helped her to turn it on.
She saw Cheng Jun's missed calls.
So she quickly to initiate a video call.
With a beep, the phone was connected. Ruan Jiujiu: "My phone is about to die, where are you?"
From the video, she saw Cheng Jun was also standing in the airport lobby. But with people walking behind him, Ruan Jiujiu can't tell where he was. Cheng Jun said, "Just stand where you are."
Ruan Jiujiu: "Hmm?"
The phone shut down again.
Ruan Jiujiu: "..." This time she even gave up the bad language.
As Ruan Jiujiu looked away, Cheng Jun's slow voice rang behind her: "What are you looking at."
Ruan Jiujiu almost jumped in shock.
She looked back, and Cheng Jun, who was calm, stood behind her. Ruan Jiujiu wasn't sure if it should be a surprise or a shock. She got angry: "What are you doing? Why didn't you go on a business trip?"
Cheng Jun's eyes slid out of focus: "The weather is bad, so it was canceled."
Ruan Jiujiu: “... But yours is in the daytime.”
Although Cheng Jun answered very calmly, Ruan Jiujiu's sixth sense told her that Cheng Jun must be lying.
But... forgot it. She had planned to celebrate his birthday, and no one can expect this.
Ruan Jiujiu sighed, "Go home."
The two walked forward a few steps. Ruan Jiujiu looked at Cheng Jun again, and Cheng Jun spontaneously checked his walking postures.
Ruan Jiujiu: "So you run here?"
Cheng Jun seldom looked sweaty, but now, even is hair roots were wet, and the sweat on his neck ran down and wet the neck. Although he was as quiet and calm as usual when he was walking, the signs on his body told Ruan Jiujiu that he must have strenuous exercises just now.
Cheng Jun was quiet for a second, and said in a calm voice: "It's because of snowing."
Ruan Jiujiu believed it. Right, how could Cheng Jun run here because of her? He had a habit of doing things slowly, and even drinking a glass of water when playing games, so he will never get anxious because of his slow coach.
The two went out, and the snow just came from the outside.
When Ruan Jiujiu was on the way to the airport, it had no signs of snowing. But now, just in a short time, the road had been already covered with snow.
Cheng Jun called a taxi. They sat in the back row, and no one meant to speak first.
Ruan Jiujiu took a glance at him: "You don' wanna know why I came to you?"
"You want to hang out." He gave the most likely answer.
Cheng Jun ruled out the possibility that she would go to another city because of him.
The driver turned on the radio, and the anchor was counting down, preparing to play a song to wish everyone a Happy New Year. It was about to enter a new year.
Although it wasn't a perfect timing for there was no cake, no wonderful atmosphere, no songs of blessings, and there was still heavy snow outside the car window.
Ruan Jiujiu somehow felt her heart to be touched.
When the radio anchor counted down to the last number, she took out a small piece of cake from the bag. The cake, being squeezed, had already became a pile of crap. She said to Cheng Jun: “Happy birthday! "
A joyous song sounded on the radio, and the volume turned up by the driver, which almost covering up Ruan Jiujiu's words. Cheng Jun had lowered his eyelids, but after hearing this, he instantly stunned and stared at Ruan Jiujiu quietly.
A person who was stared at by his brown eyes will always feel nervous. Ruan Jiujiu also felt in the same way.
Ruan Jiujiu coughed: "Aren't you going to say anything? Mr. Cheng?"
"You don't like it because it's too ugly?" Ruan Jiujiu looked down at the cake. Well, it was really ugly.
She intended to take it back into her bag.
Just like taking her "goat turd ball" before, Cheng Jun also took the cake suddenly. He held it in his hand, opened it, and took a fork to eat it.
"You can’t say it's not delicious. Although there are few pieces left in the cake shop, this one is definitely the best selling before being disfigured, so... "
His eyebrows were stretched, and his voice was low. Then he took another bite. Ruan Jiujiu was really afraid that he will be choked.
What she didn't know was that since his mother's death, Cheng Jun had never celebrated his birthday. For him, the birthday cake was a memory of many years ago. The sweetness in the tongue was so familiar but also strange.
Ruan Jiujiu sighed with relief. Although she knew that Cheng Jun was a foodie, something like a birthday cake was more like a mood.
She said: "Do you know that I booked the movie and the restaurant, but then I canceled them. So annoying! If you didn't accidentally cancel the flight, I really want to kill you."
"[Cough Sound]..." Cheng Jun suddenly coughed.
Cheng Jun, who was eating the cake, immediately realized that if Ruan Jiujiu saw the dinner that had been arranged at home, he might be facing a storm in his life.
Ruan Jiujiu: "? ? ? You ok?"
Cheng Jun: "I'm choking. Go to the hospital's emergency room."
Responding to him was Ruan Jiujiu’s gaze of death.
"... You think I'm an idiot?"
