e, Qin Zhuopu felt that his mind was refreshed for a moment.
He suddenly realised that if it hadn’t been for the invitation of his old friends, it would have been half a year since he had been out for some exercise and relaxation.
Working day in and day out was fulfilling, but he was also tired.

“Yo, the workaholic is finally here.
I thought you were going to fail the appointment today.”

He finally met his old friends and their wives and children when he reached the rest area halfway across the racecourse, and his late arrival was immediately greeted with teasing.
Qin Zhuopu dismounted reluctantly and said in his usual gentle tone, “Lao Gao, it’s my fault.
Tonight is my treat, you choose the place.”

“Hey, I can’t even mess with you.
What’s the point of treating us to dinner, you don’t even drink.” A chubby middle-aged man snorted, shaking his head, but the beautiful woman next to him helped gently, saying, “That’s because Brother Pu is smart and self-disciplined.
What’s so great about drinking and smoking? He doesn’t have bad habits, unlike you, who drink so much that your fat head is bald.”

“That’s right, our teachers say that drinking and smoking is unhealthy and makes you ugly! Dad, they say baldness is hereditary… oh, will I go bald in the future? I don’t want to be like you!” An eight or nine year old girl came running from a distance and glared angrily at her dad.

Everyone laughed.

Fat Gao was furious: “Don’t listen to your mother all the time, baldness is passed on to men but not to women.
What are you afraid of, it’s your brother who will be bald, not you.”

“Ba Ba! Hair pretty hair~” A little boy, walking crookedly, followed the girl, tugging on his unruly hair and innocently grinning at his bald dad.

Fat Gao was so impressed that he covered his mouth with his hand and said, “Oh, they’re all my babies.
None of you will be bald! Dad will just be bald alone.”

“Uncle Qin, I haven’t seen you for a long time, I really miss you!” The little girl happily approached Qin Zhuopu, her eyes shining brightly at him.

Qin Zhuopu smiled and stroked the girl’s head, “Xuanxuan has grown taller, just like your mother.”

“Hehe, of course.” The little girl loved to be praised for looking like her mother, because her mother was the most beautiful.
The little girl flattered hastily, “Uncle Qin is still so handsome, if you were at our school you would definitely be a male god.”

“Thanks for the compliment, little princess.” Qin Zhuopu laughed.

“A man who is not married is different from a man who is married and has a family.
How do you say it, it’s called youthfulness.
I used to be unconvinced before, but now I can’t help but see Lao Qin.
Take a look at your belly and then take a look at Lao Qin’s abs, tsk, the difference is blatant.” Another tall, slightly chubby man shook his head, his eyes filled with fatalistic envy.

Behind Qin Zhuopu, another unmarried man said breathlessly, “I’m not, I’m not, I’m the same as you guys.”

“Brother Xiao Chen, you need to find a wife first and then you’ll share our blessing.
Hey, your hairline is really weird.
Hurry up and ask Lao Qin for advice on how to maintain your hair.”

Brother Xiao Chen covered his hairline and wanted to cry without tears, “Look at the bald guys among foreign royalty, this sickness can’t be cured.
Lao Qin has good genetics, think about it, Grandpa Qin’s hair is white but the volume is amazing! God gives him a lot of hair, we can’t compete.”

“If you can’t compete with your hair, can you compete with your abs?”

Someone laughed and said, “Lao Qin is dressed up, where can you see his abs?”

……

Qing Zhuopu glanced around and sighed in his heart.
Almost all of the people here were his playmates who had known each other since kindergarten.
When they were young, they used to get together every day and run around, but now as the years went by, they saw each other less and less.
Who knows for how many years, but whenever there was a private gathering that didn’t involve work, spouses and kids became the main event.

It seemed oddly different not to be married and to have no children.

Especially since…

“Lao Qin, when are you planning to get married?”

Here it comes, finally; the serial marriage questions the older young unmarried people can’t escape anywhere they go.

Seven aunts, eight uncles and every other relative regardless of gender, from the top brass down to the gossipy media.

Come home to face the elders and go out to be pestered by friends.

Unmarried and guilty?

Qin Zhuopu’s heart felt blocked; he turned around and got on his horse, his movements smooth like flowing water.
He raised his whip, shook his head disapprovingly and said, “Don’t be like the old lady who nags me, it makes me sleepy.
My current lover is work, and its position in my heart is unshakeable.”

“See, and you say you’re not a workaholic! I think you have an endocrine imbalance and a lack of love hormones.
You should get out and stimulate them.
Some day I will introduce you to some quality women… ahem, quality handsome men, okay! There is no saying that you have to find a woman to get married, Lao Qin, you can find a man to marry, no problem at all.”

Qin Zhuopu was outright delighted, “Okay, then you have to prepare a double red envelope for that day.”

“That’s worth it.
But tell me the truth, Lao Qin, you don’t have a partner now, do you? The guy I’m entrusted with shouldn’t be a mistress, ah, I’m a decent person.” Lao Gao coughed lightly a few times and stared expectantly at Qin Zhuopu, while the rest of his companions listened curiously, sure that they were getting to the point.

“Who entrusted you with what?” Qin Zuopu asked, his smile already disappearing.

Lao Gao did not hide it, saying bluntly: “The younger brother of a friend from abroad.
He has the same hobbies as you, is two years younger than you, and also an alumnus.
He’s called Yu Yourong…”

“Impossible.”

Qin Zhuopu interrupted Lao Gao’s introduction, waved his whip and sent his horse to a gallop.
His dashing back disappeared in an instant.

According to Baidu, it’s a ‘network organisation’ originating from “Audition Online” game ‘Zhuopu’ means ‘humble, austere’; actually never seen such a name before
