Chapter 921: In the plane
Three stewardesses appeared to serve the passengers. One of the stewardesses smiled as she went up to Dong Xuebing.
“Hi, what drinks do you all like?” The stewardess asked.
Xie Huilan pointed at a glass. “I want a glass of warm milk. Thanks.”
Xie Jing smiled. “I want a Cola.” She looked at Sun Kai. “He will have the same.”
Xie Ran was about to order when Xie Hao interrupted. “My brother and I want cocktails.”
Dong Xuebing stared at Xiao Hao and said to the stewardess. “Ignore this brat. Give him a glass of orange juice.”
“Orange juice?!” Xie Hao grumbled. “You might as well give me a glass of water.”
Xie Huilan looked at Xie Hao and laughed. “This is a simple request. Give him a glass of water.”
The stewardess smiled and remembered their orders. She returned a while later with their drinks. Another stewardess came over with a bottle of red wine and a tray of wine glasses. The wine’s label was in French and seemed to be expensive. It should not be the wine served to the other first-class cabin passengers.
“Who ordered this?” Xie Jing asked curiously.
The stewardess smiled. “This is complimentary from our leader. Please enjoy.”
“Your leader?” Dong Xuebing immediately understood it should be Brother Wu.
Xie Huilan smiled. “Thank you.”
The stewardess opened the wine bottle, and the fragrance filled the first-class cabin.
Xie Huilan is pregnant, and Xiao Hao is too young to drink. Dong Xuebing looked at Xie Jing and Sun Kai, who did not look like they wanted to drink alcohol. He turned to the stewardess. “Can you bring a few more glasses and serve them to all the passengers?”
The stewardess poured a glass of wine for every first-class cabin passenger a while later.
A few passengers knew this was a bottle of fine wine and was expensive. They were puzzled why it was served to them.
The stewardess explained and pointed to Dong Xuebing. “That gentleman asked us to share this bottle of wine with you all.”
The other passengers exclaimed. “You don’t have to do that.”
“You are so nice, young man.”
Dong Xuebing raised his glass and said. “I would like to thank you all for speaking up for me earlier. Here’s a toast to you all.”
“Ah, that was nothing.”
“That’s right. We are fellow countrymen. What’s there to thank?”
“Furthermore, we did not help much.”
The other passengers raised their glasses and took a sip. Because of the incident earlier, they had gotten closer and started to chat among themselves. They talked about Diaoyu Dao, and some exchanged contacts.
That wealthy-looking old man waved Dong Xuebing over. Dong Xuebing remembered him. He was the first to speak up for Dong Xuebing earlier.
“How do I address you, young man?”
“My surname is Dong. You can call me Xiao Dong.”
“No one is sitting beside me. Come and have a drink with me.”
“Sure.” Dong Xuebing walked over with his glass and sat beside him.
That old man laughed. “I am Wu Er. It’s an old fashion name, and I am from China too. I had been doing aquatic business in Taiwan for years.”
Dong Xuebing replied. “I will address you as Boss Wu.”
The old man shook his head. “Don’t call me boss. I only made some money. Haha…. Just call me Old Wu.”
“No…. you are around my mother’s age. I will call you Uncle Wu.”
“Sure. You can call me whatever you want. Xiao Dong, how did those punches and kicks earlier feel? I bet it felt great. Hahaha….”
“They asked for it. I did not plan to hit them.”
“I like your character. I had the same temper when I was young.”
They chatted happily, and Dong Xuebing could tell Wu Er was also an ‘angry youth.’ They had many in common, and they exchanged numbers.
“Oh, Uncle Wu.” Dong Xuebing asked. “We are going to Taiwan for vacation and will be there for a few days. But we did not join a tour group, which was inconvenient to travel. You are familiar with that area. Do you know where we can rent a car?”
Wu Er hesitated. “Rent a car? I’m afraid you cannot rent one.”
“You all don’t have the local driving license. You can hire a driver, and most hotels provide this service.”
“Forget it then. We planned to travel alone and will be uncomfortable with a driver.”
Wu Er thought for a while and said. “How about this, Xiao Dong? I will make the arrangements for you when the plane touch down. Leave this to me.”
“Don’t mention it. Here, cheers.”
Twenty minutes later.
Dong Xuebing returned to his seat.
Xie Huilan yawned. “Why did you take so long?”
Dong Xuebing nodded. “I was chatting with another passenger. Are you sleepy?”
“Yes. I wanted to nap, and I was waiting for you.”
“Why are you waiting for me? Just go to sleep.”
“Haha…. I want to sleep on your shoulder.”
Dong Xuebing was surprised. Xie Huilan was not so loving towards him at home. Why did she change when she was outside? “Here’s my shoulder.”
Xie Huilan smiled and rested her head on Dong Xuebing’s shoulder. She held his hand and played with his fingers.
Dong Xuebing smelled her long hair and kissed her. “Sleep.”
Xie Huilan nodded sleepily. “Wake me up when we are reaching.”
Xie Hao, who was playing cards with Xie Ran, saw this and giggled. He whistled loudly at them.
Xie Jing was also giggling at them.
Dong Xuebing blushed and ignored them.
The plane slowly descent at around noon.
Dong Xuebing pushed Xie Huilan’s leg lightly. “Wake up. We reached.”
Xie Huilan yawned and opened her eyes slowly. “I don’t feel like moving. What should I do?”
“You don’t feel like moving? The plane had touched down, and we are about to reach the aerobridge.”
“Kiss me. I will wake up if you kiss me. Haha….”
Dong Xuebing was blushing. “Stop playing around. Your brothers and sister are looking at us.” He saw Xie Huilan not moving and had no choice. He kissed her on her lips.
Xie Huilan stretched and yawned after the kiss. “Hmmm…. That was a good nap. Thank you, my little Hubby.”
Xie Huilan grumbled. “Go ahead and order me around. I am giving in to you now because you are pregnant. We shall see after you deliver.”
“Oh, you are getting bolder.”
“What are you going to do with me? Huh? Tell me.”
“Why should I tell you?”
Xie Hao rubbed his arms. “Sis, Brother-in-law, I am getting goosebumps all over me. Can you stop showing your affection? We are getting off the plane.”
Xie Huilan looked at Xie Hao. “Why do you care? What has our affection for each other got to do with you?”
The plane stopped, and everyone started walking toward the exit.
Dong Xuebing walked out of the airport with Wu Er.
A cool breeze welcomed them as they stepped out of the airport. This place was warmer than Beijing.
Xie Hao shouted. “Taiwan! I am here!”
Many tourists and locals looked at him curiously.
Wu Er laughed. “Xiao Dong, your family is interesting. Let’s go. My car should be here. I had called my men earlier.”
Two cars parked by the roadside opposite.
One was an Audi A8, and the other was a black Mercedes MPV.
Wu Er walked over, and the driver opened the door for him. He smiled at Dong Xuebing and pointed to that Mercedes MPV. “Just drive this car and return it to me when you return. Although the police are not strict here, try to avoid them as you are driving without a license. Call me if you encounter any problems.”
Dong Xuebing was surprised. “Is this your car?”
“That’s too kind of you.”
Wu Er laughed. “It’s nothing.”
Xie Ran looked at the Mercedes and said. “This is an expensive car. We cannot accept it.”
Wu Er waved his hand. “Don’t say that. Xiao Dong is my friend, and what’s wrong with lending him a car? Give them the key.”
The Mercedes MPV driver got out and gave the key to Dong Xuebing.
Wu Er’s gestures touched Dong Xuebing. They had only known each other a few hours ago, and he took off his watch. “Uncle Wu, we will accept it, and I will leave my watch with you.”
Wu Er laughed. “Patek Philippe? Your watch is more expensive than my car.”
“You can return me my watch when we return your car.”
“Never mind. I trust you.”
Wu Er pushed the key into Dong Xuebing’s hand. “Enough. I trust you. Just go ahead and drive it. You are not treating me as your friend if you insist on leaving your watch with me.”
Dong Xuebing smiled. “Ok. Thank you.”
“Don’t mention it. Alright. Just enjoy yourselves. There’s GPS in the car, and you can find your way anyway. Bye.”
Sun Kai, who was standing at the back, asked softly. “Jingjing, is Patek Philippe watch very expensive?”
Xie Jing whispered. “Expensive? My brother-in-law’s watch is worth more than two million RMB. My brother and my A8 are gifts from him.”
Sun Kai was shocked by Dong Xuebing again.
Is this person a government staff?!
