The following author, just uses one page of paper, and already descriped the whole "structure" of China.
Today is weekend, we have a secondary school classmate gathering in Tian An Hotel.
Since the graduated of our secondary school, a lot of classmates work very successful, but only my job is very poor. I work as a graphic designer in a factory; I, and my husband live together with our both salary and which only just enough to support our family.
I desire to not go to the gathering, but just would be ungracious not to accept the invitation.
My husband teaches my son, my son is going to the secondary school, my husband puts a lot of effort because we want him to go to a good secondary school.
I saw them once, then go out to my house door.
Tian An Hotel is a first class hotel, while I stepped into the stateroom, all the classmates were arrived.
Though not yet sat down, the name cards are throwing, all the titles are general managers or director, even though Eric also is a police captain who get the worst studying result before.
I watch on the plates sent by the waitress, I really feel myself very ignorant, because the value of this table of foods was already my three months salaries.
Eric looks after all the classmates just like a master, also continued to pour wine and foods to the others, and says: "Just eat, count on me." All the classmates are enjoying and talking through as well.
After the meal, it's too late, while we desire to finish the gathering, the problem comes, who pay the bill? No one seems want to be the payer.
At that time, Eric takes out his mobile phone, presses a number and says: "Lee, did you finish the campaign against pornography? Did you caught anyone? Just caught? Alright, send me one to pay the bill."
He puts his mobile phone back to the pocket after finished the conversation, and all the classmates laugh as usual. Within 15 minutes, a middle-ager comes in, he looks at the bill with a frown, seems he doesn't have enough cash as well.
One of the other classmate takes out his mobile phone then, and presses a number, says: "Liu, I am Principal Ma, the issue that you want to send your son to our school, I confirm you okay and no problem right now..... but I am having dinner with my friends currently, would you come to pay the bill at Tian An Hotel 203 stateroom......"
Within 20 minutes, someone knocks the door, the door was then opened. I feel swoon when I saw a man who wears a glasses and stands in front of the door, he is my husband.
