Chapter 93

       The next day, he continued with Tian Chong to check the warehouse.

       Today’s Tian Chong looks much more serious than yesterday.

       Originally, their warehouse department and these warehouse managers below were very familiar with each other, but when Li Zhenruo arrived here, they just followed him obediently and didn’t say anything more to the person in charge.

       The warehouse here was larger, and the number of inbound and outbound shipments was also considerable. It was already dark in the afternoon when things were over.

       Tian Chong’s cell phone rang suddenly, and when he saw it was an unfamiliar phone number, he answered it strangely.

       It turned out to be a calm man’s voice, “Are you Tian Chong from the warehouse department?”

       Tian Chong heard the other party’s tone was like that of the company’s superior, and quickly responded with a suitable attitude, “I am. To whom I am speaking?”

       The person on the other end of the phone said, “I’m Luo Fei, please let Jason answer the phone. His phone is off.”

       When Tian Chong heard the name Luo Fei, he was stunned for a moment, and then he reacted with a jolt, and quickly said, “Yes, yes, Mr. Luo, just a moment.”

       He hurriedly handed the phone to Li Zhenruo, and mouthed nervously, “Big Boss!”

       Li Zhenruo took it and gave a somewhat lazy “hello”.

       Luo Fei asked him, “Why isn’t it on?”

       Li Zhenruo took out his mobile phone and found that it had run out of battery some time ago.

       Luo Fei said, “I’ll give you the address and we’ll have dinner tonight.”

       Li Zhenruo’s tone was full of suspicion, “You’re inviting me to dinner?”

       Luo Fei said, “And with xiao Feng, coming?”

       Li Zhenruo thought for a moment, “There’s also Li Zhenran, right?”

       Luo Fei just laughed.

       Li Zhenruo said helplessly, “Did you take money from him?”

       Luo Fei still laughed with an unknown meaning.

       Li Zhenruo finally asked Luo Fei to give him the address, and then hung up the phone.

       He returned the phone to Tian Chong, and Li Zhenruo asked the driver to drop him off at a convenient place in the city for a taxi, and then sent Tian Chong straight back to the office.

       Until Li Zhenruo got out of the car, Tian Chong was still holding his phone and trying to recall. He asked the driver, “Have you heard of Li Zhenran? I think the name sounds familiar.”

       The driver said casually, “Isn’t it the second son of Yunlin, who is very close to our big boss.”

       Tian Chong’s eyes widened, “It’s him! Thought so!”

       Li Zhenruo was so young, and Luo Fei valued him as soon as he came to the company. Everyone was guessing that the young man must have a backup. Now it seemed that he was not wrong.

       He took a taxi to the western restaurant that Luo Fei told him about, but Li Zhenruo suddenly felt a little grimy before entering.

       The warehouse was on the outskirts of the city, where the environment was open and windy, and Li Zhenruo felt that his hair was dusty.

       So he went to the bathroom first, changed into a clean and decent suit from the cubicle, and walked towards the restaurant.

       Luo Fei and Feng Junyuan were sitting in a comfortable corner of the restaurant, and when they saw Li Zhenruo from a distance, Feng Junyuan raised a hand to greet him.

       Li Zhenruo sat down and asked, “Where’s Li Zhenran?”

       Luo Fei said, “Do you miss him so much?”

       Li Zhenruo was a little tired, yawned and didn’t bother to pay attention to him, and said, “We’re not waiting for him? Can I order now?”

       Feng Junyuan got up from Luo Fei’s side, sat beside Li Zhenruo, and reached out to touch his head.

       Li Zhenruo knew that several of his master’s family regarded him as a cat, and he was used to their intimate actions, so he did not reject it, and reached out to hug him, “Xiao Feng.”

       Feng Junyuan also hugged him, stroking his hair while trying to kiss his forehead, but Luo Fei pulled him back.

       Luo Fei said, “Stop it.”

       Li Zhenruo whispered to Feng Junyuan, “You refuse to tell me, but I think I still know what Luo Fei is?”

       Feng Junyuan looked at him in surprise, “Really?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “He’s a rabbit, right?”

       Feng Junyuan still looked surprised, “Is he a rabbit?”

       Luo Fei looked at them coldly, picked up the fork on the table and pointed at Li Zhenruo, “I’m deducting your bonus.”

       Li Zhenran came a little late, sat down and said, “Sorry, there is a delay.”

       When he saw that his expression was not too relaxed, Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but ask, “What’s wrong?”

       Li Zhenran picked up the water glass and took a sip of water, “Dad is not feeling well. I took him to the hospital in the afternoon, and I will visit him later in the evening.”

       Luo Fei asked, “Is everything alright?”

       Li Zhenran said, “It’s nothing, it’s an old age problem, it’s repeated.”

       Li Zhenruo recalled the last time he saw Li Jianglin, his body seemed to be gradually improving.

       Li Zhentai’s death was definitely a blow to Li Jianglin, however, it also gave him complete closure. After that, Li Jianglin’s body was actually recovering slowly, but it was impossible to return to its original state.

       Li Zhenruo just didn’t expect that he would suddenly be admitted to the hospital at this time.

       The Li family always had a family doctor and a caretaker living at home. The fact that he was taken to the hospital was probably because the situation was a bit serious.

       Li Zhenran was in a hurry to eat.

       After he ate, he stretched his arms around Li Zhenruo’s shoulders, kissed him on the cheek, and said, “I have to go to the hospital, let Luo Fei take you home.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t think anything was wrong, he just reached out and grabbed Li Zhenran’s arm and said, “I’ll go with you.”

       “You’re coming?” Li Zhenran asked him.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Well, I want to go and see.”

       Li Zhenran hesitated for a while, and finally said, “Let’s go together then.”

       Li Zhenruo was still more or less concerned about Li Jianglin. His biological mother had passed away, and he had never met the so-called biological father. He probably didn’t even know his existence in this world, and Li Zhenruo also never thought that that person was his father.

       He felt indifferent to the brothers, and the only one who could be regarded as a family was probably Li Jianglin.

       Although in the last days of his life, Li Jianglin gave up on him. However, like Li Zhentai, even if he was betrayed by Li Jianglin, Li Jianglin did not completely give up on him. Li Zhenruo couldn’t help thinking later that if he didn’t die, maybe one day he might come back to Li’s house and continue to be Li Jianglin’s son.

       This was just a delusion, and by now Li Zhenruo had stopped thinking about it.

       He just wanted to see Li Jianglin.

       If Li Jianglin passed away one day, he might not be able to accompany him to the end by his side. Now, while he was still there, he could see him as much as he wanted.

       On the way to the hospital, Li Zhenran did not ask him the question, If you are not Li Zhenruo, why are you going to see Li Jianglin?

       Li Zhenruo thought of a good answer, but it was useless.

       Li Zhenran just asked him, “Are you tired today?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m okay. How is your father?”

       Li Zhenran replied, “Old people’s problem, you know how it is. Let’s go and have a look.”

       They drove to the hospital, and Li Zhenruo followed Li Zhenran to the VIP ward where Li Jianglin was.

       As he opened the door, Li Zhenruo found that Zhu Kai was inside.

       Zhu Kai was sitting at the bedside watching Li Jianglin, but when he heard the movement, he turned to look at them. After seeing Li Zhenruo, he was a little surprised, “Why are you here?”

       The Li family hadn’t seen Li Zhenruo for a long time, and when they asked Li Zhenran, he didn’t say anything. Everyone thought they were quarrelling.

       Li Zhenran just said, “He came to see Dad.”

       Zhu Kai then stood up, “Then come and sit, I’ll go out and buy a pack of cigarettes.”

       After that, Zhu Kai walked outside.

       Li Zhenran and Li Zhenruo walked to the hospital bed and sat down.

       Li Jianglin seemed to be asleep, and his breathing was a bit cloudy and heavy.

       “Dad,” Li Zhenran called to him softly.

       As a result, Li Jianglin slowly opened his eyes, looked at him for a while, then looked at Li Zhenruo and said, “You are here.”

       “Mr. Li,” Li Zhenruo called.

       Li Jianglin said, “You don’t need to call me that, just call me Uncle Li.”

       Li Zhenruo did not speak.

       Li Jianglin’s voice was weak, “I thought you and Zhenran had a fight.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words and smiled lightly, “Yes, I had a fight with him.”

       Li Jianglin sighed, “Life is only a few decades, so young people don’t know how to cherish it. It’s no big deal to let it pass.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Aren’t you against it?”

       Li Jianglin’s eyes were a little cloudy, “If my opposition was useful, I would naturally oppose it to the end. But this son, I don’t even know him well enough myself, and I don’t think my opposition will be useful. Since you must be together, then it’s up to you.”

       “Dad,” Li Zhenran called to him softly.

       Li Jianglin said, “I have done a lot of things before, and now I don’t know if I should regret it, but I know very well that regret is the most useless thing because it’s irredeemable. In this case, before some things reach a dead end, it’s better to turn back as soon as you can.”

       Although he was talking about Li Zhenruo and Li Zhenran, Li Jianglin was more like speaking to his past self.

       At this moment, Li Zhenruo suddenly wondered if he remembered Zhu Yun.

       What happened between him and Zhu Yun back then, and why Zhu Yun gave birth to Zhu Kai with someone else, Li Zhenruo may have a hard time knowing the truth by now. And Li Zhenruo didn’t want to know the truth so much. Sometimes it’s not necessarily a bad thing for parents to maintain the best image in their minds for their children.

       After talking so much, Li Jianglin seemed a little tired. He closed his eyes and only his heavy breathing could be heard inside the quiet ward.

       “Zhenran,” Li Jianglin said suddenly again.

       “Dad?”

       Li Jianglin said, “Take care of yourself and keep an eye on the third child. You both are the only two children I have left.”

       Li Zhenran said, “I will.”

       Li Jianglin added, “Do whatever you want to do, there is no need to wait until you regret it in the future.”

       Li Zhenran heard the words and turned to look at Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo said softly, “Uncle Li, have a good rest.”

       Li Jianglin fell asleep, and Li Zhenran sent Li Zhenruo away.

       After coming out of the ward, Li Zhenruo said, “You don’t need to send me off, just stay with him for a while.”

       As soon as he finished speaking, he heard footsteps approaching slowly across the corridor, and turned to see that it was Li Zhenzi.

       They all had jobs during the day and were only slightly free at night after work, so they took this opportunity to spend time with Li Jianglin.

       Li Zhenzi was probably the only person who didn’t know his own relationship with Li Jianglin yet, but it was actually pretty good. At least Li Jianglin had a son who was truly devoted to him.

       When he saw Li Zhenruo, Li Zhenzi’s eyes widened, “Why did you come?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m here to visit Mr. Li.”

       Li Zhenzi looked at him, “I heard that you resigned from my second brother and went to Luo Fei’s place?”

       Li Zhenruo took a deep breath and said without haste, “A fine birds choose wood to perch1A talented person is free to choose his own boss, is there a problem?”

       As he heard this, Li Zhenzi raised his hand to bump against Li Zhenran, “Second brother, your little lover said that you are rotten wood.” Then he glanced at Li Zhenran with a meaningful look.

       Li Zhenran let out a laugh, “Whether it’s rotten or not is something he’ll only know after he tries it.”

       Li Zhenruo was not in the mood to tell erotic jokes to the two brothers, so he yawned tiredly again and said, “I’ll go first.”

       Li Zhenran said to him, “I’ll see you off.”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “No need,” he waved his hand, turned and left without looking back.

       Although he didn’t look back, Li Zhenruo still heard Li Zhenzi and Li Zhenran said, “Second brother, if he played hard to get to you like this, are you really going to take the bait?”

       Li Zhenran seemed to laugh without saying a word.

       Li Zhenzi said again, “Don’t be afraid of him, you can also hang him for a few days too.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t hear the latter words, because he had already entered the elevator and watched the elevator door slowly closing. The only thought in Li Zhenruo’s heart was: let’s see if you really dare to do that.

       He knew that Li Zhenran would not dare now.

       On the third day, there was a delay in the company, so the trip to the last warehouse was arranged on the fourth day.

       With the experience of the previous two days, Li Zhenruo and Tian Chong set off early this morning and even they also ate two buns for breakfast in the car.

       After looking at the information about the last warehouse, Li Zhenruo closed his eyes and fell asleep when he saw that they were still far away from the destination.

       Although they started early in the morning, they were stuck on the way out of the city for more than an hour. When they arrived at the destination, it was almost ten o’clock in the morning.

       The head of the warehouse greeted them, asked them if they had breakfast, and invited them to the office to sit down and have two cups of tea first.

       Li Zhenruo refused outright and said, “Let’s just start straight away, otherwise I’m afraid we won’t be able to go back until the inspection is over today.”

       The person in charge had no choice but to take Li Zhenruo and the others to the warehouse and also took out all the prepared materials.

       This warehouse was the largest of the three warehouses because the distance was relatively far. In fact, Li Zhenruo had already prepared that he would not be able to complete the work within a day, and might not be able to go back until tomorrow.

       The person in charge had been with Li Zhenruo all the time. He probably wanted to get close to him, but Li Zhenruo was not very interested and concentrated on checking all the inbound and outbound orders.

       He had the company’s inbound and outbound records in his hand and needed to check them against the ones here to see if there were any discrepancies.

       After lunch, Li Zhenruo felt a little stuffy and really tired, so he came out for a walk.

       He walked around the warehouse and found it strange that there were nine warehouses recorded here, but he only saw eight in total in this area. Where was the last one?

       He came back and asked Tian Chong, “Have you counted all the warehouses?”

       Tian Chong said, “Yes, there are three warehouses left.”

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “I remember that there are nine warehouses in the file, but why are there only eight here?”

       Tian Chong froze, “Aren’t there only eight?”

       He thought about it for a while, went to open the file and said, “Oh, there are really nine.”

       In the afternoon, Li Zhenruo asked the person in charge of the warehouse.

       Hearing the words, the person in charge said: “The ninth warehouse is a little far from here. It is an old warehouse, so the environment is not good and the moisture resistance is not very good. I applied for renovation, and it is empty now.”

       “Empty?” Li Zhenruo asked.

       The person in charge said, “Yes, it’s already fenced off and it’s not convenient to go in, the warehouse is really not up to standard, so it’s out of use for renovation.”

       Li Zhenruo nodded and asked Tian Chong, “Does your warehousing department know?”

       Tian Chong frowned and thought about it, “It seems that this year this side has reported that it needs to be renovated.”

       Li Zhenruo then asked the person in charge, “Has the construction started?”

       The person in charge said, “Not yet. Isn’t it New Year’s Eve soon? The fencing has just been done this month, and the construction will start after the New Year.”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “That’s good.”

       After that, he didn’t ask about the warehouse again, and since the fence was being built in preparation for the construction, he did not let Tian Chong personally go over to see it.

       In the afternoon, Li Zhenruo’s work speed slowed down a bit.

       Tian Chong finished his work and came back to him to help him.

       Li Zhenruo said, “It’s okay, I’m sure I won’t be able to finish today, let’s continue tomorrow.”

       Tian Chong was a little surprised, “Are you going here again tomorrow?”

       Li Zhenruo thought for a while, “Instead of wasting time on the road, why not stay over here today?”

       “Stay over…” Tian Chong’s tone was obviously unhappy.

       The person in charge of the warehouse was enthusiastic to keep them, “Then stay here, I will immediately ask someone to book a hotel downtown, and let’s have dinner there. I know a restaurant that cooked cold-water fish very well.”

       Li Zhenruo looked up at him, smiled and said, “No need to be so polite, it’s a waste of time to go downtown. Find a room for us here tonight.”

       “Huh?” This time Tian Chong was completely dumbfounded, “Here?”

       There were usually people on duty in the warehouse here. Of course, it was not impossible to find a bed to sleep in, but the conditions must be terrible. Tian Chong was not a rich young master, but he was a big city office worker. He followed to conduct random warehouse department inspections, and this time the warehouse couldn’t take good care of them. And today he didn’t know what the assistant want to do, unexpectedly asked to stay in the warehouse.

       The person in charge was obviously a little stunned. He quickly said, “There is no one here, the conditions are too poor, and the weather has been cold these two days. You should be careful or you’ll freeze at night, so let’s go to the hotel.”

       Tian Chong then whispered, “Yes.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “It doesn’t matter, just stay here and buy two thick quilts while it’s still early. I’m really tired today, and I don’t even want to take the car.”

       The person in charge was still embarrassed and looked toward Tian Chong.

       Tian Chong didn’t want to stay here very much, but he couldn’t speak out against Li Zhenruo directly, so he could only whisper to the person in charge to see if he could persuade Li Zhenruo again.

       As a result, Tian Chong still failed to persuade Li Zhenruo and had to stay in the warehouse at night.

       The person in charge could only pack a room for the small office building on the third floor and built two steel wire beds. The bedding was brand new, clean and soft.

       Li Zhenruo refused to go to the city to eat dinner, so the person in charge asked someone to make some and went to buy a few dishes back. They made a banquet directly at the side of the warehouse. The food wasn’t great, but the wine was good.

       The person in charge personally accompanied him and planned to stay here at night.

       Li Zhenruo did not want to drink, he excused himself from all of them on the pretext that he was allergic to alcohol, but later on, he could not avoid it, so he drank a glass and pretended to be drunk, and directly fell on the table.

       As a result, Tian Chong dealt with the people in the warehouse by himself. He was drunk, and after being sent to the room, he lay on the bed directly.

       After simply washing his face with hot water, Li Zhenruo was lying on the bed, when he heard Tian Chong beside him mumbling.

       Tian Chong was probably also delirious, and he kept complaining that he couldn’t stand this place, the environment was too bad.

       Li Zhenruo smiled when he heard the words, and lay on the bed with his clothes closed and his eyes closed.

       There were still people coming and going outside, someone was talking in a low voice, and a headlight shone down from the third floor. Even if the light was not turned on in this room, it was still bright.

       Li Zhenruo always felt that there was something wrong with the last warehouse.

       According to the person in charge, they reported to the company two months ago to apply for funds to repair. Last month, the company approved the funds in place, and this month began to build the fence and there did not seem to be any problems.

       But Li Zhenruo remembered clearly that in May, a batch of goods was originally sent to the warehouse here, but it was sent to the other warehouse because the inventory capacity was insufficient. However, since May, there has been no record of inbound and outbound shipments from that warehouse.

       Did the warehouse have a problem long ago and the person in charge never reported it so it was left idle, or was the warehouse being used for something else that they didn’t want the company to know about?

       If it were the old Li Zhenruo, he would definitely report the situation here directly to Luo Fei and let Luo Fei handle it at his own discretion.

       But now he felt that he was perfectly capable of checking out the warehouse first, and so when he handed in this report to Luo Fei, it would be really beautiful.

       It was still early, so Li Zhenruo covered himself with the blanket and planned to sleep until four or five o’clock in the morning when people were most soundly asleep and most unprepared.

       In the end, Li Zhenruo himself did not expect that something happened before he slept in the middle of the night.

       This small building in the warehouse had three floors. He didn’t know where the accident happened. In the middle of the night, Li Zhenruo heard a commotion outside, and there was a burning smell in the air. Someone shouted from outside, “Fire!”

       The small building was built in a rudimentary manner. It was originally a temporary structure and had been used since then. The materials were flammable, and the fire control was not enough. He didn’t know where the flames came from. The wind was strong in the suburbs, and it suddenly burst into flames at once.

       Li Zhenruo was not afraid of fire, but Tian Chong still sleeping in the room.

       He lifted the quilt and got up, walked to Tian Chong’s bed and patted his face, “Get up! It’s on fire!”

       Tian Chong had been drinking and was completely asleep, snoring loudly. When Li Zhenruo covered his face, he barely managed to silence his snoring, but as soon as he removed his hand, he started snoring again.

       The fire didn’t seem to be under control, and the people outside began to shout: “It’s on fire! Get up!” Among them, Li Zhenruo also heard voices interspersed with those calling his and Tian Chong’s names.

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t bear it anymore, and slapped Tian Chong in the face, “There’s a fire! Do you want to die?”

       Tian Chong finally opened his eyes, but he was still in a trance, “What’s wrong?”

       Li Zhenruo had no choice but to drag him out of the bed and ran out with his arms on his shoulders.

       Tian Chong was taller than him, and it was very difficult for Li Zhenruo to walk with him. Fortunately, he was strong enough to drag such a big man down from the third floor.

       At this time, Tian Chong gradually came to his senses, and when the cold wind blew on his face, he looked at the firelight reflected in his eyes, and his voice trembled, “A fire?”

       Li Zhenruo said angrily, “Yeah, are you going to die in it? Idiot!”

       After dragging Tian Chong out of the small building, Li Zhenruo looked back and saw that the fire was even more vigorous.

       The person in charge was desperately calling for people to put out the fire. There were warehouses nearby. If the fire was too big and set the nearby warehouses on fire, it would be really bad.

       However, Li Zhenruo remembered another thing. All their documents were still left in the room just now. So he threw Tian Chong to the ground, and Li Zhenruo turned around to go upstairs again.

       Tian Chong was so frightened that he sobered up from all the alcohol in his body. He grabbed Li Zhenruo’s hand and said, “Are you crazy? Why are you going back?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t bother to talk to him and kicked him in the shoulder to drive him away, then turned and ran upstairs.

       Tian Chong covered his shoulders, and the whole person was stunned.

       The fire in the small building was getting bigger and bigger, but fortunately, it had not spread.

       All staff guarding the warehouse were dispatched to put out the fire with high-pressure water cannons and fire extinguishers.

       Despite this, after Li Zhenruo returned to the room to pack up the documents and put them in the handbag, the fire spread outside the door.

       Li Zhenruo had no choice but to go to the window and shout to Tian Chong, “Catch it!”

       Tian Chong hurried up to catch the handbag that Li Zhenruo had thrown down and then crawled away hurriedly because of the heat. He shouted to the upstairs, “Come down quickly!”

       Li Zhenruo stepped back from the window without hurrying, turned into a cat shape from an angle that could not be seen outside, and quickly slipped out of the window.

       Just when he jumped out of the small building, the fire was temporarily suppressed. When he saw that the fire was getting weaker and weaker, Li Zhenruo turned and ran towards the low hillside there.

       He had seen the geographic map of this warehouse. Behind this hillside was the last warehouse. Now people were gathered to put off the fire, and Li Zhenruo planned to take this opportunity to go and have a look.

       Not long after he ran to the hillside, he suddenly heard a loud noise behind him. He quickly stopped and looked back. He found that the small building where the fire had slowed down had become ablaze again, and it was very likely that something like a gas tank had exploded.

       After a little hesitation, Li Zhenruo still followed the established route.

       At this time, Tian Chong was completely dumbfounded, because he had never seen Li Zhenruo come out from inside, and thought that Li Zhenruo was still inside.

       The impact of the explosion forced them to withdraw a long way, and then they hastily picked up the fire-fighting equipment and went back to fight the fire.

       Fortunately, there was still some distance to the surrounding warehouses, and there were no other combustibles materials nearby. If the small building continued to burn like this, even if it burned to ashes, it should not have affected the nearby warehouses.

       But even so, everyone was desperately trying to put out the fire.

       Tian Chong stood alone with his briefcase in his arms. He had never seen this kind of battle. More importantly, it seemed that something had happened to Assistant Li, and if Assistant Li hadn’t saved him, he could have run out with the papers long ago.

       “Ah—” Tian Chong let out a miserable scream.

       When he screamed, Li Zhenruo was still running all the way. The distance of the warehouse was indeed a bit far. It took him about ten minutes to run all the way, and when he arrived near the warehouse, he found that it had indeed been fenced off.

       Jumping on the low wall, Li Zhenruo looked up in the dark. The door of the warehouse was a steel door, which could not be opened without a key if it was tightly closed. There were walls on all sides, and only a high place had an exhaust fan window for ventilation.

       Li Zhenruo glanced at the duty room in the corner of the warehouse, where the lights were on, and someone was standing at the door looking towards the small building that was on fire but had no intention of going there.

       Since it was an empty warehouse, why did they have to arrange for someone to be on duty, and why did the person not go to help even if he knew that the building was on fire?

       Li Zhenruo was more certain that there must be something in this warehouse.

       He took a deep breath and jumped up towards the wall, using his claws to climb up the wall in a single leap. Fortunately, the walls of the warehouse were still made of cement instead of metal. So Li Zhenruo used his claws to grip them firmly and followed the method Xia Hongshen had taught him to mobilise his whole body’s spiritual energy and climbed up to the exhaust fan vent at the top in one fell swoop without stopping.

       The exhaust fan was not turned on at this time, so Li Zhenruo used his claws to bend one of the fan blades and got in without any problems.

       Li Zhenruo stood at the window and looked in, and saw that the warehouse was not empty, but there were many large plastic buckets, and there was an unspeakable smell in the air.

       He climbed on the wall and slid down. Li Zhenruo jumped on a plastic bucket and opened the lid, and saw that it was filled with liquid, and the smell was pungent. It should be some poisonous liquid.

       Li Zhenruo jumped off the edge of the bucket, and he jumped onto another plastic bucket, and when he opened it, it was still the same thing.

       He opened more than a dozen barrels, which were basically liquid and semi-crystalline, emitting the same strong, pungent smell.

       There were so many stored in this warehouse, which add up to at least ten tons. It should be that the person in charge of the warehouse had privately collected money from others to store it for others, and the company had no records at all. This warehouse was also not certified to store toxic and chemical substances.

       No wonder it was covered up for fear of them coming to investigate, and the warehouse was fenced off on the pretext of renovation before a routine inspection at the end of the year. There was a fire in the small building over there, and the person in charge of the warehouse must be very nervous. If the fire could not be put out and spread to the warehouse, he might not be able to cover up the things he stored here.

       Li Zhenruo knew everything he wanted to know, and he didn’t plan to interfere with the rest. Meanwhile, he would report it to Luo Fei and let Luo Fei handle it.

       He went back out through the small window he had just tumbled through and leaned over the window to look towards the small building over there.

       If he had been standing below, he would not have been able to see anything across the short hill, but from here he could see clearly that there were no more flames, and he guessed that the fire had been put down.

       But doing the math, it had been almost an hour since he had run this way, and although there had been an explosion, with adequate fire-fighting equipment, the fire in the small building should have been extinguished.

       He walked over there in a hurry, but he didn’t expect that Tian Chong had long thought that he had died in the explosion.

       When Li Zhenruo walked to the side of the small building, he saw that the whole building was dark and the open flame had disappeared, but everyone still dared not stop and was still spraying water into the building with a high-pressure water gun.

       Tian Chong sat on the ground with his briefcase in his arms and almost cried out in grief.

       Only then did Li Zhenruo realize that Tian Chong never saw him come out, probably thought he was dead. This misunderstanding became a big one, and Li Zhenruo turned around and planned to find a place where no one was around to change back into a human form.

       Unexpectedly, the two cars stopped in front of the small building one after the other, and the brakes rubbed against the ground, making a loud noise.

       It was Luo Fei who opened the door of the car in front, but Li Zhenran got in and out of the car behind.

       Li Zhenruo was stunned and stopped.

       Luo Fei hurried forward and asked Tian Chong, “Where’s Jason?”

       Tian Chong cried and looked towards the small building, “He went back to get the documents, and then the gas tank exploded.”

       Luo Fei didn’t have time to react when he heard the words, and Li Zhenran had already run past him towards the stairs.

       “You come back!” Luo Fei felt keen, “He is not dead!”

       Li Zhenran said, “I know, I’m just going to make sure.”

       The open fire in the building was extinguished, but the temperature inside was still very high, and there was no telling which corner of the unseen spark would reignite. Li Zhenran ran inside without hesitation. Just as his front foot went up the stairs, a floorboard of the building at the back fell off, nearly hitting him on the head.

       Li Zhenruo only felt that his heart almost jumped out at that moment, and there was no time to have any thoughts, and his body had already rushed out on its own.

       He was faster than Li Zhenran, and when he reached Li Zhenran’s feet, the other party had just finished a flight of stairs.

       Li Zhenruo climbed his legs and ran directly into his arms, and was hugged by him.

       Seeing the cat rushing into his arms, Li Zhenran immediately understood, turned and ran downstairs.

       As a result, when they went down two flights of stairs, another board fell off.

       Li Zhenruo subconsciously wanted to climb on top of Li Zhenran’s head to help him block, but Li Zhenran held him firmly in his arms and completely protected him.

       In the blink of an eye, the board fell but didn’t hit them, and fell to the side. Outside, Luo Fei stood in front of the stairs and said loudly, “Don’t come out yet!”

       Li Zhenruo thought that Li Zhenran would definitely not be able to escape.

       Only then did he realize that there was a very powerful demon out there and Luo Fei would not just watch anything happen to them.

       Li Zhenran hugged Li Zhenruo, his footsteps were fast and steady. He left the two-story building but still held him tightly in his arms and refused to let go at all.

       Li Zhenruo stretched his body with difficulty, put his paws on his chest, stretched out his tongue and licked Li Zhenran’s lower jaw, then saw the black marks on his face and licked his face again, trying to lick the marks clean.

       Li Zhenran gently stroked the top of Li Zhenruo’s head and said, “It’s alright.”

       Li Zhenruo felt that his tone was full of fear, and this sentence was probably comforting himself, not Li Zhenruo.

       Tian Chong lay on the ground and began to cry, “I’m sorry, he was trying to save me!”

       Luo Fei looked at him, “He’s not dead, don’t cry.”

       Xu Shengwen, who came with Luo Fei, began to hurriedly handle the follow-up work.

       As soon as they received Tian Chong’s call, they hurried over. Normally, it would take more than two hours to drive, but it was squeezed to one hour. However, Li Zhenran still felt that he was late.

       If it was true that Li Zhenruo had not come out as Tian Chong had said, then nothing could be undone if he came over now.

       Luo Fei saw that Li Zhenran had been staring at the cat in his arms, touched the top of the cat’s head repeatedly, and the kitten had been licking Li Zhenran’s face to comfort him, so he said, “You guys first get in the car and have a rest.”

       Li Zhenran nodded and hugged Li Zhenruo into the car.

       The driver was not in the car at this time. He got out and went to watch the action.

       As soon as Li Zhenruo got in the car, he changed back into a human form. He reached out and hugged Li Zhenran, “I’m fine.”

       Li Zhenran didn’t speak, just hugged him tightly, buried his face in his shoulder, and breathed deeply and slowly.

       Li Zhenruo suddenly remembered that time on the rooftop, he deliberately lied to Li Zhenran, making Li Zhenran think he was reincarnated. At that time, he wondered if Li Zhenran would jump down from upstairs and follow him, but Li Zhenran did nothing.

       When he thought about it now, Li Zhenruo found that he was really stupid. If Li Zhenran jumped off at that time, he would probably live in pain forever and couldn’t extricate himself. Even if he were to die one day, he hoped that Li Zhenran would be able to live happily and find someone he could love and fall in love again.

       Li Zhenruo felt a bit emotional. When the floor fell just now, he really thought Li Zhenran would be smashed to death there.

       Compared with the dread of death, living apart was probably a waste of one’s life.

       He wanted proof, and if Li Zhenran couldn’t prove it with his life, what better proof could there be in this world?

       There would be a day when Li Zhenran could prove that he will love him all his life and that he would be willing to throw away his life, but Li Zhenruo would probably be left with nothing but remorse.

       Li Zhenruo said in Li Zhenran’s ear at this time, “I forgive you.”

       Li Zhenran suddenly raised his head.

       Li Zhenruo felt that there seemed to be some wet marks on his shoulders, but when he wanted to look down, Li Zhenran squeezed his chin and kissed his lips heavily.

       He didn’t have the strength to resist at all, and Li Zhenran had already overwhelmed him in the back seat of the car. The hot kiss was about to drown him in an instant.

       Li Zhenruo fell on his back and suddenly found a person standing outside the car window.

       He looked back and up and saw Tian Chong standing outside, looking at them with a terrified expression.

       So he quickly patted Li Zhenran’s shoulder.

       Li Zhenran looked up but did not stop kissing him. Instead, he pulled away Li Zhenruo’s clothes and put a hand in.

       When doing this action, Tian Chong found that Li Zhenran was staring at him fiercely, and then he was wholly startled for a while, and then he quickly turned to avoid them.

       Only then did Li Zhenran’s movements become gentle, and the frenzied kisses turned into light kisses one after another, and the atmosphere became warmer.

       When Luo Fei came over, Li Zhenruo got up and pulled up his clothes and said to him, “I found something. There is a warehouse here that was misappropriated by the person in charge to store poisoned items. I suggest you call the police.”

       Luo Fei heard the words with a solemn expression and nodded, “I will handle it.”

       After speaking, Luo Fei turned his head and looked at the chaotic environment around him. He said to Li Zhenran, “Thank you for your hard work. I will handle the finishing work here. Let the driver take you to the city to open a room and have a good rest. Let’s talk about it tomorrow.”

       Li Zhenran replied, “Okay.”

       Luo Fei patted the door and said to Li Zhenruo, “Good job.”

       Li Zhenruo gave him a thumbs up and smiled.

       As Luo Fei walked away, he called Li Zhenran’s driver to come and drive.

       Originally Luo Fei meant to go to the nearest urban area to rest, but Li Zhenran asked the driver to drive directly home.

       After going through so many things in one night, Li Zhenruo’s mind was still very awake, and there was no sleepiness at all, while Li Zhenran was relaxed after being so tense that he fell asleep on Li Zhenruo’s lap soon after the car had been driven.

       Li Zhenruo had been stroking his hair gently and looked out of the car window.

       When they came, they were rushing all the way. On the way back, the driver drove a lot more slowly. When they returned to the city, the driver asked Li Zhenruo softly where he was going.

       Li Zhenruo said, “To his apartment.”

       At this time, it was inconvenient to go back to Li’s house and woke up Wang Ma and the others.

       Before they know it, the sky in the east had turned white.

       When the driver drove downstairs to the apartment, the first rays of the sun shone through the front window of the car in the morning, and the winter sun fell gently on them with an almost imperceptible warmth.

       When Li Zhenruo lowered his head, his hair was plated with a soft golden colour by the sun. He kissed Li Zhenran’s forehead and said, “We’re home, let’s go back.”


The author has something to say:

The story is over, I’ve spent all day today on this and I’m almost dead. I used to be foolish enough to think that all readers would like to see me keep writing and don’t stop, even if it’s a little slower, it doesn’t matter, but only yesterday did I find out that there are readers who are just waiting to see an ending.

So I did what I promised yesterday, and there will be a silly and sweet episode next, but I won’t guarantee daily updates (I never do!). I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do that, but I’ll keep it light anyway. Unknowingly, it has been serialized for three months. I wish you all a happy life^_^


Notes:
It feels hella long right?? Ahahaha (ㅍ▽ㅍ)
There are 6 cute side stories after this that I can hopefully release as soon as possible!

Chapter 15

       Chen Yuncheng walked all the way to the elevator, stopped and did not rush to press the elevator. He sent Ning Junyan a WeChat message: “Are you still at work?”

       Ning Junyan quickly replied: “Yes.”

       Chen Yuncheng typed: “Where is your office? Let me pick you up from work.” Then he raised his head and couldn’t help but smile.

       This was the first time Chen Yuncheng had been to Ning Junyan’s office.

       Ning Junyan was not there at the moment and had only left him the password to open the door, and told him to go to his office to rest first.

       Before he came, Chen Yuncheng was still a little nervous, afraid that someone would stop him, and he couldn’t explain why he was here well. It turned out that finding Ning Junyan’s office doorplate was easier than expected, perhaps because the hospital was already too crowded with people, and no doctor or nurse who passed by cared who he was.

       Ning Junyan’s office was not big, with a desk, a sofa, a wardrobe and bookcase, and a small refrigerator.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t touch anything of his stuff and just walked to the front of the bookcase. He looked at it and saw that it was full of medical books, many of which were in English.

       At that moment, Chen Yuncheng really felt the gap between the two people after being separated from Ning Junyan for more than ten years.

       In fact, if he thought about it carefully, there had been a gap between the two since childhood, but at that time Ning Junyan was not in his right mind, so Chen Yuncheng couldn’t feel it. He ran around outside with Ning Junyan every day and felt that he had a silly follower.

       The foster father didn’t like Ning Junyan very much, since Chen Yuncheng wouldn’t bring back more money to the family than he would have if he was taking Ning Junyan out.

       Perhaps at that time, the foster father had thought about sending Ning Junyan away, but then Ning Junyan was still there. Chen Yuncheng would think later that perhaps because Ning Junyan was a fool, no one wanted to buy a fool to raise him back, so the foster father had no choice but to keep him. Anyway, Chen Yuncheng was quite happy to have another person around to play with.

       The little Ning Junyan was very obedient, although he only listened to Chen Yuncheng’s words. He was supposed to be a spoilt child, since he did not know how to do anything in life, and Chen Yuncheng even had to wash his clothes for him.

       When Chen Yuncheng took a large basin to wash clothes in the yard, Ning Junyan squatted beside him and watched him. When Chen Yuncheng finished washing, Ning Junyan would run the water to help him clean his clothes together.

       At this time, they were often scolded. The foster mother would stand at the door to scold them whenever she heard the water rattling too long from her room.

       Ning Junyan had always ignored it, but Chen Yuncheng would quickly turn off the water at this time, carelessly washed the clothes twice and hung them. They were wearing old clothes that looked dirty no matter how clean they were.

       When he returned to his room at night and closed the door, Chen Yuncheng felt the most relaxed.

       He would turn on a lamp and read comic books on the bed. He rented the comic books outside, and secretly put a ten yuan deposit with the owner. After he finished reading one, he would go to change with another.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t even go to elementary school at that time, so he didn’t know many characters. He liked to read comic books because he could see pictures even if he couldn’t read. But Ning Junyan was different. Although he didn’t even know his own name, he knew a lot of words, at least those in comic books.

       So when Chen Yuncheng was reading comics, Ning Junyan lay beside him and read with him, taught him the characters he didn’t know and taught him pinyin and stroke order.

       Once, Chen Yuncheng borrowed a comic back, and when he opened it at night, he found out that it was not a teenage action comic but a girl’s romance comic. He was so disinterested but thought that he had better finish reading it after spending all the money, so he plopped down on the bed with Ning Junyan and flipped through page after page.

       In the end, there were many scenes of the heroine and the heroine making out in the comic.

       Chen Yuncheng was still too young to know what was going on in the world, so he only knew that they were making out, but he didn’t know exactly what was going on. The comic was quite subtle, so he was curious and turned to Ning Junyan and asked, “Can you have a baby like that?”

       There was hardly any expression on Ning Junyan’s face as he stared at the cartoon and said, “I don’t know.”

       Chen Yuncheng was curious, “If a man and a woman lie on the same bed and kiss and hug, they will have a child, why don’t foster father and foster mother have one?”

       Ning Junyan folded his arms under his chin and said, “I don’t know.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt bored, he closed the comic and said, “It doesn’t look good, let’s stop reading it.”

       Ning Junyan said, “Oh.”

       Chen Yuncheng turned over and lay on his back on the bed, quietly listening to the sound of the TV coming from the foster father’s room next door. After a while, he felt an itch in his heart while thinking about the pictures in the comics. He turned his head to look at Ning Junyan, “Did you choose the comic today?”

       Ning Junyan who was also lying on his back at this time, replied, “No.”

       Chen Yuncheng got the urge to tease him and said, “It’s you.”

       Ning Junyan turned his dark eyes to look at him, and said softly, “It’s me.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and sat up. He reached out and pulled out the comic book from under the pillow and flipping it open to cover Ning Junyan’s face.

       Ning Junyan extended his hand and tried to lift it up.

       Chen Yuncheng grabbed his hand and didn’t let him touch the comic book, so Ning Junyan didn’t move, and kept lying on his back with the book covering his face.

       After a long time, Chen Yuncheng still remembered some of the pictures in that comic, but he and Ning Junyan never rented a girl’s comic to read again.

       Chen Yuncheng waited for more than ten minutes inside Ning Junyan’s office, but he still hadn’t returned.

       Chen Yuncheng did not rush him and just sat on the sofa quietly playing with his phone. The office was well heated and it didn’t take long for Chen Yuncheng to feel a little sleepy, so he put his phone aside, tilted his head back and closed his eyes.

       He didn’t expect that he would fall asleep, and he slept for a long time. When he woke up again, he had a brief blank, unable to remember where he was.

       That was until he opened his eyes and saw Ning Junyan sitting across from him.

       Ning Junyan had taken off his jacket and was sitting behind his desk, looking at Chen Yuncheng all the time. When he saw him open his eyes, he said, “You’re awake?”

       Chen Yuncheng still felt dazed from his sleep, and his arms were a bit numb after maintaining a fixed position on the sofa for a long time, so he first sat up, yawned, and then asked, “When did you come back?”

       Ning Junyan said, “I just came back not long ago.”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help rubbing his eyes and asked him, “Why didn’t you wake me up?”

       Ning Junyan didn’t answer, and just asked, “Still sleepy?”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled, “How long do I have to sleep then?”

       Ning Junyan said, “It’s okay, I can wait for you.”

       Chen Yuncheng glanced at him.

       Ning Junyan looked very calm, and his tone of voice was also very flat that people could not feel his emotions, and sometimes could not understand what he was trying to say.

       Chen Yuncheng stood up, pulled his wrinkled jacket, and said, “No, I’m already hungry, let’s go have dinner.”

       Ning Junyan nodded and stood up too. He reached for the coat hanging on the hanger.

       Chen Yuncheng suddenly said, “Do you remember when we rented the wrong comic book and rented a girl’s comic book when we were young?”

       Ning Junyan said, “Well, Bewitched Treasures.”

       “What?” Chen Yuncheng was stunned for a moment.

       Ning Junyan said indifferently, “The title of that comic.”

       Chen Yuncheng stood there a little dazed, “Really?” He couldn’t remember the name of the comic anymore, if it was really the name, why did he get it wrong then?

       When he was still in a daze, Ning Junyan suddenly approached, raised his hand and hung a soft scarf around his neck.

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him in surprise.

       Ning Junyan just said, “Let’s go, let’s eat.”

Chapter 11

       Suo Yang said, “Mr Jiang and that boy are quite suitable.”

       Shen Huiming looked back before going out. The drunk and crying guy was still hugging the innocent Jiang Tongyan in a deadly hug.

       He smiled and said, “I didn’t think you could joke about it.”

       When the two came out, Suo Yang took a deep breath of fresh air and said with a smile, “I’m serious.”

       Shen Huiming knew too well what kind of people Jiang Tongyan liked. It was more or less someone like Suo Yang, but no matter what, it would not be someone a little crazy.

       But he just smiled and looked at Suo Yang, and didn’t say anything to refute.

       “I think it’s quite interesting,” Suo Yang stood on the side of the road and raised his hand to rub his somewhat sore neck, “When two people with completely different personalities get together, their life will be turned upside down.”

       Shen Huiming wasn’t sure if Suo Yang had something to say. It would take a lot of work to understand what this person and this person were saying.

       “It’s true that a life that’s hardly changes can feel boring,” Shen Huiming said, “So, trying to accept new friends, trying to do things that you never thought you would do before, is a way to relax.”

       Suo Yang laughed, “It could also be a new burden.”

       “Are you…” Shen Huiming paused just in time.

       He originally wanted to ask Suo Yang if he was afraid of change, but he suddenly realized that people like Suo Yang would not like the word ‘afraid’.

       He changed his words and asked Suo Yang, “Are you very resistant to change?”

       Suo Yang looked at him and smiled, and asked, “Mr. Shen, do you have any cigarettes?”

       Shen Huiming didn’t expect him to smoke, so he took out his cigarette case and handed it to him.

       Suo Yang skillfully lit the cigarette, took a puff, then closed his eyes and slowly exhaled the smoke.

       He had indeed drank a little too much today.

       Suo Yang was not very addicted to smoking, especially when he was either at work or at home. He felt that both places were not suitable. He used to have a few cigarettes a day when he was in school, but he gradually quit since he started working.

       Shen Huiming quietly stood beside him smoking a cigarette, watching Suo Yang’s profile become ambiguous under the orange street light.

       He remembered Jiang Tongyan’s words—I don’t believe you don’t have that in mind about him.

       How could he not?

       Shen Huiming just looked at him like that. He was a little restless and ready to create some trouble.

       In this regard, the man’s body had always been honest.

       But after all, Shen Huiming was not the kind of man who would easily get aroused, and his curiosity about Suo Yang was not just a desire for a physical adventure.

       He also took a deep breath and suppressed his desire.

       Zhou Mo’s alcohol was too strong, and Suo Yang felt a little dizzy as he leaned against the wall and smoked with his eyes closed.

       He didn’t say anything, just tried to keep himself sober and decent.

       When he finished smoking a cigarette, Suo Yang opened his eyes and said, “I’m really sorry, I suddenly remembered I have something to do. I have to go first.”

       Although Suo Yang didn’t say it, Shen Huiming could tell that he was a little drunk.

      People who often pushed glasses and changed glasses on the wine table could actually tell who was drunk to what extent at a glance. No matter how steady Suo Yang was at this moment and how clear his words were, his hazy eyes and slowed speech had completely exposed him.

       Shen Huiming didn’t expose him. When dealing with a person like Suo Yang, if you acted too much like ‘you understood’, it would make them more resistant.

       Sometimes it was not half bad to feign ignorance.

       “Okay,” Shen Huiming said, “Do you want me to pass the message to Zhou Mo?”

       “I’ll call him later.” Suo Yang walked towards the side of the road, “Then I’ll go first.”

       Shen Huiming followed him diagonally behind and raised his hand to help him call for a taxi.

       Suo Yang felt dizzy, a state of real drunkenness that he would have at most once or twice in a few years.

       And he was well aware that this state would only become more and more obvious. He couldn’t handle such a strong drink. If he wanted to keep his attitude, the best way is to escape as soon as possible.

       That being said, it seemed to be somewhat useless.

       But even as a deserter1it refers to how Suo Yang is trying to run away from the place, Suo Yang didn’t want to lose his dignity in front of others.

       When the taxi arrived, he reached for the door and missed the handle.

       He panicked for a moment, hurriedly calmed down, and forced the door open.

       Shen Huiming saw his actions, but he didn’t say a word. He just said to the driver as the other party sat firmly in the car, “Please take care of this.”

       Then he turned back and whispered in Suo Yang’s ear, “Be safe and send me a message when you get home.”

       Suo Yang smiled at him, “Goodbye, Mr. Shen.”

       Shen Huiming helped him close the car door and stood there watching the car disappear into the night.

       He lit another cigarette, recalling what Suo Yang looked like just now.

       It was very arousing, it was the feeling of being tickled by a cat’s whiskers.

       Suo Yang, on one hand, made him feel as if he was as fresh as a mountain forest, tall and straight as a green bamboo, and on the other hand, it made him feel like he was a poppy blooming in the middle of the night, gorgeous and attractive.

       He thought of the ‘The Flowers of Evil2Les Fleur Du Mal’, the torch of Satan, a gift of nature.

       It was an unpredictable spiritual turmoil.

       Shen Huiming waited outside, and the wind was blowing, knowing what he was waiting for.

       Suo Yang forced his way to the house, and the moment he entered the door, he slumped on the chair in the hallway.

       He leaned against the wall for a breath, raised his hand and rubbed his temples vigorously.

       He really couldn’t drink with Zhou Mo, the guy was getting scarier and scarier.

       He had just sent a message to Zhou Mo on the way,  telling the other party that he had left beforehand because he had something to do and that he would treat him another day as an apology.

       Zhou Mo didn’t reply, he was probably making trouble.

       Suo Yang felt light-headed and it felt like his whole body was out of control.

       He leaned against the corner, his eyes closed, and his breath was burning hot.

       It had been a long time since he drank like this. The wine had melted into his blood, burning him like dry grass that had been set on fire.

       The phone suddenly rang, loudly.

       Suo Yang frowned and fumbled, finally taking out the phone that kept making noises from his pocket with a shaking hand.

       He picked it up without looking, swallowed hard, closed his eyes, and tried to make his voice sound the same as usual.

       “Hello.” Suo Yang said.

       Standing on the side of the road with a cigarette between his fingers, Shen Huiming asked softly, “Home yet?”

       His voice pierced into Suo Yang’s ears like electricity, causing him to shiver.

       He suddenly opened his eyes, looked at the dark and empty home, and replied calmly, “Well, I just got inside.”

       Shen Huiming chuckled, “That’s good, have a good rest, take care of yourself, and see you another day if there’s a chance.”

       Shen Huiming’s voice was like a wisp of smoke, swirling around Suo Yang, making him dizzy.

       “Suo Yang?”

       “Oh, okay.” Suo Yang lost his concentration. He realized that he had revealed a flaw, “See you some other time, good night.”

       He didn’t dare to listen to the other party’s words much longer, the man’s slightly husky voice turned into a gentle ribbon that tightly strangled his throat in his silent home.

       Something was killing him.

       When Suo Yang put down his phone, he thought: Maybe I should take a cold shower.

Chapter 92

       In fact, up until now, Li Zhenruo had always felt that the Li Zhenran he used to know was the real Li Zhenran.

       There was some indifference, some carelessness.

       Of course, Li Zhenran could be gentle and enthusiastic, but that was just what he wanted to show him. Perhaps behind his gentleness and enthusiasm, he had been observing his every move with a calm attitude.

       However, he was willing to be gentle and warm to him, which also shows that he thought of him in his heart, and was not afraid to change and disguise himself to cater to his want.

       After he pulled himself away from the frenzy of love, Li Zhenruo found that he was getting to know Li Zhenran better and better as a person.

       He couldn’t control Li Zhenran, and of course, he certainly didn’t have to. However, he didn’t think he should be easily controlled by Li Zhenran, and that they should love each other with mutual respect.

       Well, Li Zhenran had already noticed his way of thinking, so Li Zhenran would give him the respect he wanted.

       But Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but wonder, if everything was just a play acted by Li Zhenran, could Li Zhenran’s love for him and this play lasted a lifetime? What if one day he stopped loving him?

       As he thought of this, Li Zhenruo began to scorn himself. Forget it, it didn’t matter if he didn’t love him. Who can’t live without whom? If Li Zhenran didn’t love him anymore, he would just leave and follow his master to cultivate into an immortal. There were countless beautiful men and women to eat and drink with, who needs him?

       It was just that Li Zhenruo didn’t take into account that his master had become an immortal, yet he was still squatting in the dilapidated school dormitory, eating cheap cat food and canned cat food every day and drooling over his goodies.

       When he arrived at the company, Xu Shengwen, who was sitting across from the office, gave him a wink and smiled meaningfully.

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t figure out what his wink meant, so he remained silent and did not respond.

       After Luo Fei came, he called Li Zhenruo into the office and asked him, “How did it go last night? The tail didn’t show, did it?”

       Li Zhenruo always felt that Luo Fei’s tone had a bit of ridicule in it. He said, “No, thank you boss for your concern.”

       “Well,” Luo Fei tapped his fingers on the table, “You know, Second Young Master Li is our big customer, and there will be a lot of business dealings in the future. Since he thinks highly of you, you can be considered to be in charge of welcoming him in the future.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at Luo Fei, and suddenly got closer across his large desk, “Boss, your tail is falling out.”

       Luo Fei leaned back on the office chair, and a smile slowly spread from the corner of his mouth, “My tail, do you know what it is?”

       “What is it?” Li Zhenruo asked curiously.

       Luo Fei smiled and told him, “My tail is very cute, I won’t show it to you.”

       Li Zhenruo’s eyes widened.

       Luo Fei reached out and picked up a stack of documents on the table, “Since you are so curious and energetic, I will hand you an important task. Here are the three warehouses located in this city. Inspect them all within this week and submit a report to me with specific warehouse problems and corrective measures. Have Shengwen arrange a driver for you, and someone from the warehousing department will accompany you. Any questions?”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words, got up and took the information in Luo Fei’s hand, and replied, “No problem.”

       Luo Fei said, “What I want is not a walk-through inspection, but a serious inspection and report. Do you understand?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “Understood.”

       Luo Fei then waved his hand, “Get out.”

       Li Zhenruo turned around and walked to the door, stopped halfway, turned around and asked Luo Fei, “Boss, are you a rabbit?”

       Isn’t a rabbit’s tail cute?

       When he heard this, Luo Fei a little inscrutably at his words.

       Li Zhenruo asked again, “When you and xiao Feng got into the car, did you intentionally show your tail for him to pinch?”

       Luo Fei spoke slowly this time, smiled and replied to him, “f/ck off.”

       Xu Shengwen called Li Zhenruo and arranged a driver for him, and the staff from the warehouse department who were responsible for contacting and accompanying him were also in place.

       Li Zhenruo went to the parking lot with the documents, and when he walked to the car arranged by the company, he saw a tall young man standing in front of the car door.

       The man was still holding a stack of documents in his hand, and when he looked up at Li Zhenruo, all the documents slid to the ground at once, and he squatted down to pick them up clumsily.

       Li Zhenruo walked over to help him pick it up and then handed it to him.

       The man stretched out his hand, “Hello Assistant Li, I’m Tian Chong1田冲 from the Warehouse Department.”

       Li Zhenruo took his hand and repeated, “Padding2Padding is also Tian Chong(填充)?”

       Tian Chong explained a little embarrassedly, “Tian of the pastoral sky3Tian Yuan, and Chong of rushing forward Linghu4Linghu Chong.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled, “Hello, just call me Jason.”

       Tian Chong also smiled.

       The two got into the car and sat side by side in the back seat to sort out their trip these days.

       If things went well, it would take about a day for them to complete one of the warehouse inspections. The first two were on the outskirts of the city, and it was only a one to two hours drive. Because those were not in the same direction, they didn’t plan to finish the inspection in one day.

       The last one was a little further away, but it was also in this city, and it takes less than three hours from the time they went out of town, so he planned to leave it for the last day.

       Li Zhenruo said to Tian Chong, “You are more expert in this area, so when the time comes, I may need to ask you for advice on many things.”

       Tian Chong hurriedly said, “Assistant Li is too modest.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled.

       Then both fell silent.

       This Tian Chong didn’t look like he was in his thirties. Li Zhenruo didn’t know how he usually worked, but now he seemed to be a little sloppy.

       As they arrived at the warehouse in the morning, they began to inspect item by item according to the inspection clause.

       The warehouse had received a notification long ago, and the person in charge had prepared the materials in a neat manner and put the inbound and outbound orders as well as the relevant systems and procedures placed together in front of Li Zhenruo.

       Tian Chong went with the administrator to check the storage of the goods and whether the fireproof and waterproof measures in the warehouse were in place.

       It was the first time that Luo Fei handed over important work to Li Zhenruo. Of course, Li Zhenruo would not do it perfunctorily and would really check carefully everything one by one, causing the person in charge of the warehouse to sweat on his forehead.

       The workload was larger than Li Zhenruo expected. By noon, they had only finished half of the inspection. The warehouse manager asked them if they would like to go to a nearby restaurant for lunch, but Li Zhenruo refused.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Let’s eat a boxed lunch, it’s a waste of time to eat outside.”

       The person in charge still wanted to invite them, but when he saw Li Zhenruo’s firm attitude, he could only arrange a lunch box for them.

       While they ate, Li Zhenruo’s cell phone rang. He saw that it was Li Zhenran who was calling, so he walked to the corner with the lunch box to answer the phone.

       “What?” Li Zhenruo asked.

       Li Zhenran asked him, “Did you eat properly?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “What do you think?”

       Li Zhenran said, “I heard that Luo Fei had you work in the field.”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “Well, to inspect the warehouse at the end of the year.”

       Li Zhenran said to him, “Keep yourself warm and eat on time.”

       Li Zhenruo was silent for a while and said to him, “Why are you so considerate?”

       Li Zhenran said “hmm”, as if he didn’t understand what he meant.

       Li Zhenruo said, “You are not that considerate, so why do you have to pretend to be so considerate?”

       When he heard this, Li Zhenran responded, “This is quite interesting, what kind of person do you think I am?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Cold-blooded.”

       “Am I cold-blooded?”

       “At least not as gentle and warm as you have shown.”

       Li Zhenran laughed, “That’s because I want to be gentle and warm with you, is there a problem with that?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m not Li Zhenruo, you’ve got the wrong person.”

       After he said that, he hung up the phone. He found that he couldn’t answer Li Zhenran’s questions well, and whatever doubts he had, Li Zhenran was able to defuse them in the end and he became speechless.

       In fact, he was not Li Zhenran’s opponent from beginning to end. He was still too naive. In the past, he thought that the Li family would be his possession in the end.

       He was the mantis that stalked the cicada and was unaware of the oriole bird behind5to pursue a narrow gain while neglecting a greater danger. The bird let the mantis jump and planned to wait for it to jump high enough to move its head to peck and eat the mantis.

       After he hung up the phone, Li Zhenruo ate the lunch box. He then threw the empty lunch box into the trash can, turned and walked towards the warehouse.

       Tian Chong was sitting on the chair with his back to him. At this time, he was holding a lunch box in one hand and was calling someone with a mobile phone in the other hand.

       Li Zhenruo heard him say, “It’s the new assistant to the big boss. He looks like a college student and looks like a freshman.”

       …

       “Well, the new officer takes office, and the inspection is very strict. I can’t interfere at the side, and it’s just a routine inspection at the end of the year.”

       …

       “I wonder what the relationship with the boss is, so delicate looking, could he be a little white face6gigolo? Hehe.”

       Li Zhenruo felt a little funny, he walked behind Tian Chong, bent down in his ear and asked, “Am I that delicate? Would you like to touch?”

       Tian Chong was startled and turned around as his phone slipped out of his ear.

       Li Zhenruo caught it, opened the pocket of Tian Chong’s down jacket, put it in, and said, “Let’s continue to work after eating, okay?”

       Tian Chong nodded blankly, “Okay.”

       After spending a day in this warehouse, it was already dark when they returned.

       The driver pulled into the underground parking lot.

       Li Zhenruo and Tian Chong packed up and got off the car, and entered the elevator together.

       Li Zhenruo pressed the top floor, while Tian Chong pressed the first floor.

       “Not going up?” Li Zhenruo asked.

       Tian Chong said, “I’m not going up at this late hour, it’s the same material tomorrow anyway, I’m going straight back.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled and said, “Alright.”

       Tian Chong then asked, “Assistant Li still wants to go back to the office?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “The boss is waiting for me to go back to report on the situation, and he is paying more attention to this inspection than you think.”

       Tian Chong was stunned for a while. As he saw that the elevator had opened to the first floor, he then reached out and closed the door and pressed the floor of the storage department.

       “Not going back?” Li Zhenruo asked strangely.

       Tian Chong said, “I just remembered something, I’d better go back to the office first to sort out today’s materials.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled, “That’s fine.”

       He went back to the office, but in fact, Luo Fei didn’t stay and wait for him. He was probably on a date with Feng Junyuan.

       Li Zhenruo sorted the documents by himself, went to the bathroom to look in the mirror, and found that the corners of his brows and eyes were a little tired. In fact, he also worked overtime before, but at that time he was the one who was sitting in the office making decisions. Li Jianglin always agreed with many of his views and would arrange for the people below him to implement them.

       In the days when he was still in Yunlin, Li Jianglin always sat in the first position. As long as Li Jianglin agreed with his opinion, the people below him would not come out to oppose it. So it was different from later when Li Zhenran was in charge of Yunlin alone.

       Li Zhenran probably worked much harder than him.

       After he packed up, Li Zhenruo encountered Tian Chong coming out of another elevator when he took the elevator to the first floor. The two of them greeted one another and walked outside together.

       The heater was on in the company building, and as soon as he walked out of the door, a chill hit his face, and Li Zhenruo subconsciously closed his collar.

       At this time, he saw a car parked in front of him, and Li Zhenran was standing by the door and looking in his direction.

       Li Zhenruo paused, walked in the direction of Li Zhenran, and asked, “Why are you here?”

       Li Zhenran said, “I’m waiting for you to have dinner.”

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “How do you know I haven’t left yet?” He subconsciously wanted to take a look at his phone, suspecting that Li Zhenran had tracked him.

       Li Zhenran said, “I didn’t track you. I called Luo Fei. He said that the driver just sent you back to the company.”

       Next to him, Tian Chong looked at the car behind Li Zhenran and then at Li Zhenran, not recognizing who it was, he said to Li Zhenruo, “You have friends coming? I’ll go first then.”

       Li Zhenruo nodded, “See you tomorrow.”

       Tian Chong waved his hand and turned away.

       Li Zhenran looked at his tall back and asked, “Who?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Company colleagues.”

       “He looks very handsome,” Li Zhenran said.

       Li Zhenruo heard the words and said to him, “Do you like him? Would you like to introduce him to you?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Unfortunately, he’s not my type.”

       Li Zhenran asked the driver to drive the car away first and accompanied Li Zhenruo for a walk back slowly.

       The two walked side by side, occasionally the back of their hands touched, and Li Zhenruo noticed that Li Zhenran’s hands were cold.

       He couldn’t help but ask, “Have you been standing outside for a long time?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Not long.”

       Li Zhenruo wanted to say that his hands were cold, but after he thought about it, he didn’t say it.

       At this time, Li Zhenran suddenly grabbed his hand, Li Zhenruo wanted to break away subconsciously, but Li Zhenran held his hand and put it in his jacket pocket.

       The pocket was very warm, with the heat of Li Zhenran’s body.

       Li Zhenruo broke free and failed to break free, and said, “Others will think we are perverted.”

       Li Zhenran said, “It doesn’t matter to me what others think.”

       Dinner was eaten in a small restaurant next to Li Zhenruo’s residence.

       Inside the restaurant, the glass doors were closed and the smell of food and warm heat filled the room. Two people sat by the window, drinking mutton soup and eating steamed vegetables.

       After dinner, Li Zhenran asked him, “Want to watch a movie?”

       Li Zhenruo looked at him, “Who wants to watch a movie with you!”

       Li Zhenran seemed a little distressed, “Then what should I invite you to do?”

       “Nothing,” Li Zhenruo called the boss to settle the bill, “I need to go back to organize the materials and start writing the report.”

       Li Zhenran said, “Luo Fei is really mean.”

       Speaking of Luo Fei, Li Zhenruo suddenly thought of one thing. He approached Li Zhenran and asked in a low voice, “Do you know what Luo Fei is?”

       “What is Luo Fei?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Luo Fei is not a human, do you know?”

       Li Zhenran frowned slightly, “Then what is he?”

       Li Zhenruo said mysteriously, “I suspect he is a rabbit.”

       Li Zhenran looked at him suspiciously.

       Li Zhenruo said, “He said that his tail is very cute.”

       When he heard this, Li Zhenran’s expression suddenly became meaningful.

       Li Zhenruo said with a smile, “I know what you’re thinking.”

       Li Zhenran suddenly reached out and grabbed his hand, “You really know me well.”

       Li Zhenruo pulled his hand back, “Who has time to understand you.”

       After he paid the bill, he pushed open the door of the restaurant and went out. There was another cold wind outside.

       Li Zhenran accompanied Li Zhenruo to the place where he lived and sent him to the front of the house. When he saw Li Zhenruo open the door, Li Zhenran asked him, “Aren’t you going to invite me over to sit?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I said I had to write a report.”

       Li Zhenran lowered his head and thought for a while.

       “What?” Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but ask him.

       Li Zhenran said, “It’s nothing, can’t you see that I’m courting you?”

       Li Zhenruo laughed out loud at once, “Do you want to play a young boy or girl who is at the beginning of love?”

       Li Zhenran wasn’t angry, he said, “Isn’t the process of courting just to make you feel my love for you? Dinner, a movie, shopping, what else do you think? I can do it all for you.”

       Li Zhenruo leaned back against the door, “You’ve moved on so quickly? You don’t want Li Zhenruo anymore?”

       Li Zhenran stretched out his hand and pinched his earlobe, then leaned closer to his ear and said, “I have never moved on, from beginning to end I have only loved you, only you, I am yours, body and soul.”

       After he stood up straight, Li Zhenran found that Li Zhenruo’s ears had turned red.

       Li Zhenruo was a little dazed and had not recovered from the shock of Li Zhenran’s affectionate confession just now.

       Li Zhenran said, “I’m leaving, take your time with your work and take care of your health.”

       At night, Li Zhenruo was wrapped in a quilt and used a laptop to write a report, but the inside of his head was a little messy.

       After he was wrapped up for a while, he felt a little hot. He raised his hand and touched his face, and found that his cheeks were hot. After he stopped to think for a while, Li Zhenruo felt that it might be because of the bowl of mutton soup that night that he was feeling hot now.

       But he had been single for a long time, so even if he was hot to death, no one would come to relieve him.

       Li Zhenruo wondered idly, should he keep Li Zhenran? Anyway, he himself no longer had integrity. As he thought of this, he immediately rejected it again in his head. He had long since picked up the integrity, and sex without love was something he did not need at all.

       But actually, there was still love for Li Zhenran. Perhaps it would be best if he could sleep with him, open his eyes, get up, and get dressed without looking back and talk to him in a cold tone, “You can go now.”

       Or to just leave, threw two hundred dollars on the bedside table, and told him, “That’s all you’re worth.”

       While thinking about it, Li Zhenruo found himself even more parched and had better have no choice but to put his hand inside the quilt.

       He kept his hands outside, it was extremely cold at this time, and when he touched them, Li Zhenruo couldn’t help shivering from head to toe, and then sighed.

Chapter 91

       The car was quiet, and neither of them spoke for a while.

       Li Zhenruo felt a little stuffy and couldn’t help opening the car window, but the cold air outside rushed in, causing his throat to hurt a little after he took a quick breath.

       The driver who drove the car did not look sideways, waiting for the red light and lined up in a regular manner, driving in no hurry.

       Li Zhenruo saw the bright red decorations in the shopping mall outside and suddenly realized that it was almost Chinese New Year.

       “Can I ask you a question?” Li Zhenran said suddenly at this moment.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t look back, his forehead almost pressed against the glass, he said, “Go ask.”

       Li Zhenran asked him, “If Zhenruo was still around, how do you think he would accept me again?”

       Li Zhenruo had no way to answer this question. The thing with romance, is if everyone could fall in love and pursue someone regardless of everything, and just leave when they no longer felt love, then why would there be so many sad and tactful love songs, and moving love stories?

       From that day on the rooftop, Li Zhenruo felt that Li Zhenran probably didn’t fully believe what had happened. Today’s verbal test made him more certain of his judgment.

       Since Li Zhenran didn’t believe it anymore, it was pointless for him to work hard to act. All he could do was not compromise so easily. He didn’t want Li Zhenran to think that his deception would be harmless to him in the end and that everything would disappear after a little coaxing, and he didn’t want there to be another deception between them.

       Li Zhenruo said, “If he’s no longer afraid of you lying to him, he’ll probably be able to accept you.”

       When Li Zhenran heard this answer, he was silent for a moment and asked, “If I give Yunlin to him, do you think he will believe me?”

       Li Zhenruo said without hesitation, “He didn’t need it.”

       Li Zhenran sighed, “Then what does he need now?”

       Li Zhenruo did not answer him.

       However, Li Zhenran didn’t need his answer, and continued, “Actually, I know.”

       “You know?”

       Li Zhenran said, “What he needs is respect, a re-establishment of a relationship of mutual trust.”

       Li Zhenruo looked a little dazed, “Re-establish?”

       Li Zhenran smiled at him a little, “Didn’t you say that, he said he loved me. I don’t think we’re really over, I think we’ll have a chance to start over.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words, lowered his head and said, “Then bless you.”

       Li Zhenran asked the driver to take Li Zhenruo home. When he arrived downstairs in the community, Li Zhenran asked him, “Aren’t you going to invite me up?”

       Li Zhenruo stood in front of the car door and turned to look at him, “It’s too late, I won’t delay your rest. Mr. Li, thank you for taking me home.”

       Li Zhenran stood beside the car door, put one hand above the car door, and waved to him, “Good night, go to bed early.”

       Li Zhenruo turned around and went upstairs. After feeling the blow of the cold wind, he seemed to be sobered a lot. After he returned home and took a bath, Li Zhenruo put the towel on his head and sat on the sofa to read a book.

       In fact, he couldn’t quite get into the book, his head was still a bit dizzy and he was still thinking about Li Zhenran’s matters in his head.

       Before he went to bed, Li Zhenruo went to the window to draw the curtains. When he looked downstairs, he noticed that there was a car parked downstairs, and it was the same car that Li Zhenran had just sent him back in.

       The car hadn’t left yet, and Li Zhenran had not left either. Although he couldn’t see clearly from a distance, Li Zhenruo noticed that a person sitting beside the flower bed was smoking.

       Li Zhenruo was stunned for a moment, then took out his mobile phone and called Li Zhenran.

       The call was quickly connected, and Li Zhenran’s deep voice sounded, “You haven’t slept yet?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “If you don’t go back to sleep, the driver has to sleep too, right?”

       Li Zhenran gently laughed, “I just want to stay closer to you. Alright, I’ll go back now, you rest early.”

       After he said that, Li Zhenran hung up the phone, got up, walked over and got into the car.

       Li Zhenruo stood by the window and kept watching his car leave. He knew that Li Zhenran’s words were deliberately said to him. Li Zhenran was a terrible person. He knew what words were the most touching, but Li Zhenruo couldn’t tell whether it was the truth or not.

       But even if it was a lie, Li Zhenruo had to admit that he was moved.

       Early the next morning, when Li Zhenruo was still sleeping in the cat’s bed, he was woken up by the doorbell. He struggled to get up from the bed and walked slowly to the door before realizing that he was still a cat, so he changed to the form of an adult. He opened the door and asked, “Who is it?”

       The person standing outside the door was Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenruo scratched his head, “What are you doing so early?”

       Li Zhenran raised the bag in his hand, “Breakfast for you.”

       Li Zhenruo frowned at him, “Why did you buy me breakfast?”

       Li Zhenran had walked in, “I told you, this is the body of the person I love the most and don’t want to see him starve and lose weight.”

       Li Zhenruo stood by the door, reached out and rubbed his eyes while closing the door, and said, “Did you eat breakfast on time yourself? You look like you’ve lost weight only recently.”

       Li Zhenran smiled and put breakfast on the dining table, “I eat on time, I lost weight just because I caught a cold some time ago.”

       “Cold?”

       Li Zhenran said: “It was raining outside that day, and then I got a cold when I went back.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t speak and sat down beside the dining table.

       Li Zhenran smiled, “Do you feel sorry?”

       Li Zhenruo yawned, “Why should I feel sorry for you, the person who felt sorry for you is no longer there, and he was so angry with you that he reincarnated.”

       Li Zhenran still smiled, but he said, “I’m sorry.”

       Li Zhenruo did not respond.

       At this time, Li Zhenran turned his head and glanced at the cat bed on the ground next to him. There was still a lot of cat hair in it. He said, “You sleep here?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t want to admit that he bought a cat bed to sleep in because she was lazy, but silently took out the soy milk and steamed buns, habitually stuck a straw into the soy milk cup, and took a sip.

       Li Zhenran sat across from him and looked at him.

       Li Zhenruo saw that there was something else in his pocket, so he reached out and turned it over, but it turned out that there was a can of fish inside, and it was the brand he used to love.

       “I brought it from home,” Li Zhenran said, “Zhenruo liked to eat it before.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t want to be so polite to him, so he brought the can over and said, “Thank you.”

       Li Zhenran looked at the whole room and asked, “No toilet?”

       Li Zhenruo looked up, “It’s inside.”

       Li Zhenran said, “I said cat toilet.”

       Li Zhenruo bit the bun in his mouth and gave him a cold look, “I don’t need that.”

       Li Zhenran said, “Isn’t it inconvenient to go to the toilet in the middle of the night?”

       Li Zhenruo was too lazy to answer him.

       When he saw that Li Zhenruo had finished his breakfast, Li Zhenran stood up and said, “I’m going to work.”

       Li Zhenruo also stood up, and when he followed Li Zhenran to the door, he did not expect Li Zhenran to suddenly turn around and hold his shoulder with his hand, and his head came close.

       Li Zhenruo raised his hand to block it subconsciously, and Li Zhenran put his head on Li Zhenruo’s shoulder and whispered in his ear, “Come back.”

       After he said that, Li Zhenran let him go and left.

Chapter 14

       Dozen of tables in the lobby of Fuxiang House were already vacant, but there were still five or six tables of guests still drinking.

       Chen Yuncheng came down from the second floor, stood on the side of the road, turned around, and looked at Zhou Yan who was going down the stairs.

       Zhou Yan’s steps were heavy. He didn’t stop until he walked all the way to Chen Yuncheng. He placed his hands in the pockets of his cotton coat, and called out, “Cheng ge.”

       There were no pedestrians on the side of the road at this time. A taxi was parked not far ahead, and the driver was probably waiting for the guests.

       Chen Yuncheng asked Zhou Yan, “I thought you are not working with Zhang Wenyong anymore?”

       Zhou Yan lowered his head and said nothing.

       Chen Yuncheng’s tone was a little irritable, “Speak.”

       Zhou Yan still lowered his head and said softly, “I want to make money for my son’s operation.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him and asked, “Did Zhang Wenyong give you money? What did he ask you to do for him?”

       Zhou Yan was silent for a while, then raised his head and said, “Cheng ge, don’t ask, just pretend you don’t know, okay?”

       “What exactly is it?” Chen Yuncheng repeated in a serious tone.

       Zhou Yan slowly shook his head.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “You have been with Zhang Wenyong for a long time. Don’t you know what kind of person he is? Is his money so easy to get?”

       Zhou Yan raised his hand and rubbed his face hard, “I know, but what can I do? That’s my son, I can’t watch him die!” He paused briefly, and his tone become slightly agitated, “I even discussed with Jiajia  to either not treat him and wait for another one later, but no, I can’t do it.”

       As he said that, he crouched down on the side of the road, and covered his face with his hands as if to hide his intense emotions.

       Chen Yuncheng looked down at him: “Try to borrow it from someone else.”

       Zhou Yan looked up and looked at him, “Cheng ge, you lent me all your 30,000 yuan. Who else can I borrow it from? They know if they lent their money to people like us, I can’t afford to pay it back.”

       Chen Yuncheng stood quietly for a while, “So Zhang Wenyong gave you money and asked you to help him?”

       Zhou Yan pursed his lips, “Cheng ge, if I don’t tell you, just pretend you don’t know. I know that the policeman surnamed Long often comes to disturb you. I don’t want to make things difficult for you in the future.”

       “Paper can’t wrap the fire1the truth will come out,” Chen Yuncheng bent down and put a hand on Zhou Yan’s shoulder, “Something will happen one day.”

       Zhou Yan said, “Then I might as well treat my son’s illness first.”

       When Chen Yuncheng was about to speak again, out of the corner of his eyes, he noticed that two tall figures were walking in their direction along the side of the road.

       He looked up subconsciously, and by the light of the street lamp, he could clearly see the faces of the two people. It was the two X-ethnic people that Long Zhanyu asked him to help pay attention to.

       Zhou Yan also noticed it, he stood up from the ground and looked at the two people as well.

       At this time, there happened to be a table of eight or nine guests who came down from the first floor after dinner. These middle-aged men were all drunk, and they were making loud noises while going down the stairs.

       Chen Yuncheng pretended to be distracted, and while holding Zhou Yan’s arm and pushing it away two steps, he looked at the group of middle-aged people.

       Obviously, these people still hadn’t finished, and they were still talking to each other in groups by the side of the road. Some were calling for a chauffeur, and some were calling for taxis on the side of the road.

       The two X-ethnic people approached and stopped between Chen Yuncheng and Zhou Yan with this group of middle-aged people.

       One of them shouted in broken Chinese, “Is he upstairs?”

       Chen Yuncheng saw Zhou Yan nod at the other man.

       Neither of the two X-ethnic people noticed Chen Yuncheng, including the tall young man who had seen him in the bar didn’t seem to recognize Chen Yuncheng. After getting Zhou Yan’s answer, the two walked toward the stairs.

       In the noisy voices beside him, Zhou Yan said to Chen Yuncheng, “Cheng ge, I have to go back.”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t ask about the two X-ethnic people, but just said, “Are you going back to Zhang Wenyong?”

       Zhou Yan nodded, “It’s getting late, you go back first, and I’ll get you a taxi.” After he said that, he raised his hand to beckon to a taxi that passed by on the road.

       Chen Yuncheng pressed his arm, “No need, I can go back myself.”

       Zhou Yan was silent for a while, and then said, “Guan Anlin is out, he won’t trouble you, right?”

       Chen Yuncheng shook his head, “Don’t worry about me, I hope you will think about your matter again.”

       Zhou Yan didn’t answer, and said, “Then I’ll go up first.” After he said that, he turned and walked towards the stairs leading to the second floor.

       Chen Yuncheng watched him leave until his back disappeared, then turned around and walked along the roadside alone, towards the bus stop in front.

       The bus had very few passengers by this time, so Chen Yuncheng got on and easily found a seat. He sat down with some mixed emotions and took his mobile phone out of his jacket pocket.

       Chen Yuncheng subconsciously found Long Zhanyu’s mobile phone number, but he didn’t press the dial button for a long time. Finally, he backed out and found an account on WeChat that he hadn’t contacted in a long time.

       This person actually had dinner with him at Fuxiang House just now, but apart from the greeting when they met, the two never talked again.

       Chen Yuncheng sent him a WeChat message: “Can you help me get Guan Anlin’s phone number?”

       The other party never replied.

       It was not until Chen Yuncheng returned to his small kiosk and took a simple bath and lay on the bed that the other party replied with a mobile phone number, followed by another message: “Cheng ge, don’t say it me who told you.”

       Chen Yuncheng was a bit amused and replied to him, “No problem, thanks.” After that, he saved the mobile phone number.

       When he looked at the time, it was already past eleven o’clock in the evening, and Chen Yuncheng dialed Guan Anlin’s mobile number.

       The phone rang several times before Guan Anlin picked it up, and said “hello” indifferently.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “This is Chen Yuncheng.”

       The phone was hung up immediately.

       Chen Yuncheng listened to the busy tone on the receiver, took the phone away, glanced at their brief chat, and then made up a text message to send: “Anlin, let’s meet up sometime to talk, just the two of us.”

       Guan Anlin never replied to him, and Chen Yuncheng was not surprised. He threw away his phone and pulled up the quilt, covering most of his face with only his eyes exposed. He sighed secretly and closed his eyes to sleep.

       Chen Yuncheng dragged his feet and did not call Long Zhanyu, he wanted to make another trip to the hospital to visit Zhou Yan’s son.

       Chen Yuncheng still brought a carton of milk and tried to scrape together another thousand yuan in cash. He knew that this amount of money would not be of much use to Zhou Yan, but he really had no money left.

       When he left the kiosk in the afternoon, Chen Yuncheng closed the shutter door and stood at the door of the store. He looked at his small store and suddenly thought that if the whole store was sold out, he wondered if he could get 30,000 to 40,000 yuan for it.

       He didn’t know what to do, and he walked toward the subway station with the milk in his hand.

       Zhou Yan worked outside during the day, and in the pediatric ward of the hospital, Zhou Yan’s girlfriend Gu Yaojia was still accompanying the child.

       When Chen Yuncheng arrived, the child was being given an infusion, the needle was inserted through his scalp. The little one was lying on the hospital bed and looked very pitiful.

       Gu Yaojia looked thin, with no makeup on her face, and little blood on her cheeks and lips.

       Chen Yuncheng sat beside the hospital bed, looked at the child on the bed, and asked Gu Yaojia, “Do you know what work Zhou Yan is doing now?”

       Gu Yaojia stood leaning against the bed and said, “He said he was selling cars.”

       Chen Yuncheng asked, “Is the brokerage fee for selling used cars very high now?”

       Gu Yaojia shook her head, “I don’t know either. But his boss seems to be quite nice and is willing to lend him money.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at Gu Yaojia’s expression and guessed that she didn’t know anything. When she sat for a while and was about to leave, she gave Gu Yaojia one thousand yuan.

       Gu Yaojia was stunned for a while and said, “Cheng ge, I can’t ask for your money. Zhou Yan said you lent him all your savings.”

       Chen Yuncheng shoved it into her hand, “Take it first, I’ll talk to Zhou Yan about it. We grew up together as brothers, when he needs help, there’s no way I’ll leave him alone.”

       Gu Yaojia shrugged it off a few more times but finally accepted Chen Yuncheng’s money.

       Chen Yuncheng came out of the ward and felt his phone vibrate. As he walked towards the elevator, he took out his phone to take a look, and saw that it was Ning Junyan who sent a WeChat message: “I’m back, let’s have dinner together tonight.”

       He didn’t even ask Chen Yuncheng if he was free, as if it was a not-so-polite order.

       But Chen Yuncheng still laughed when he saw it, and replied, “Okay.”

Why do you like someone but not want to sleep with them? Don’t you have a little sister who you are very affectionate with and like very much, do you want to sleep with her?!

Chapter 10

       Shen Huiming also wondered, what exactly was the evidence of liking a person or rather, falling in love with a person?

       Your eyes always followed the other person at all times?

       Getting attracted to every single action of the other person?

       Unconsciously trying to interpret every look and every word of the other person?

       Or, when you were just thinking about the other person, the most primitive desire to possess all of them rise up?

       Shen Huiming actually didn’t like being in this state of putting too much of his mind on another person. This kind of situation consumes his mind too much, and his life was already busy enough that his time off was constantly squeezed and he didn’t have time to rest. So when emotional matters come into play, it would only makes him more exhausted.

       But things had not turned out as he had expected. Instead of being tired, paying attention and trying to get a glimpse of Suo Yang’s matters had sparked his enthusiasm for life.

       When he sat back next to Suo Yang, and the two were so close that Jiang Tongyan, who was one step late, could not squeeze himself between the two, he felt that this state was like someone had dropped a bomb into the pool of his life, which was as unchanging as it was, and the splashed everywhere in an instant. It was dangerous and exciting.

       In the past 30 years, most of his challenges and self-challenges had come from his studies and career. Now he had finally stepped into another field.

       Zhou Mo said, “Ming ge, what are you doing here?”

       He narrowed his eyes at Shen Huiming, “Tongyan’s nose was on the verge of wrinkling.”

       Shen Huiming smiled and picked up the cup comfortably, “Have a drink?”

       “Let’s have a drink!” Zhou Mo and Shen Huiming lightly clinked glasses, then took a big gulp.

       Zhou Mo was a smart person. He didn’t need Suo Yang to tell him anything when he sat down here. He could tell from the look in the other two people’s eyes that they had created a love triangle.

       He especially wanted to roast Shen Huiming, who had said he would not consider a relationship before. Why was he so excited now?

       But Zhou Mo was one of those people who didn’t think it was a big deal to watch the bustling scenes. He was still curious about how Shen Huiming and Jiang Tongyan would pursue Yang.

       Suo Yang was more difficult to kick than an iron plate, who could overtake him would really be based on their true ability.

       Zhou Mo stood up and twisted his waist happily.

       When Shen Huiming turned to Suo Yang, he found that his face had turned a little red, and he knew it was because of Zhou Mo.

       This man sat firmly in the corner of the room, with no expression on his face, but his eyes were slightly misty. A state that blurred the line between cold and seductive, making one wonder if he was rejecting you or seducing you.

       Shen Huiming asked, “Too much drink?”

       Suo Yang’s drinking capacity was actually quite average, especially today, all the wine Zhou Mo brought was strong with the purpose to intoxicate everyone.

       But he was also very sensible and would not allow himself to get drunk on any occasion. He has a skill that once made Zhou Mo amazed—even if he had drunk too much, far beyond his limit, as long as he had not returned home, Suo Yang was able to stay awake and even made it impossible for anyone to see that he was extremely drunk. However, once he got home and entered the door, he couldn’t walk a single step and would collapse directly at the door and fall asleep.

       Zhou Mo had only seen him in that state once before when Zhou Mo and he were roommates and they were both new to the company.

       They were both new to the company, handsome, and were sure to be pestered at the annual meeting.

       Zhou Mo was good at drinking, and no one could get him drunk. As a newcomer, Suo Yang certainly couldn’t refuse his seniors’ drink, so they both drank a lot. When the scene was over, the two of them seemed to be in a similar state. Suo Yang’s eyes and face were slightly red, and he was blinking less frequent, but his speech and actions didn’t show that he was drunk at all.

       They both took a taxi home together and were chatting normally before they walked in the door. As soon as they entered the door, Suo Yang sat on the stool at the entrance to change his shoes and fell asleep.

       That was the only time.

       Zhou Mo didn’t know how many people had seen Suo Yang like this, but he felt that it was pretty awesome anyway.

       This man, Suo Yang was very tense even when drinking, and Zhou Mo really didn’t know how to make him relax.

       Facing Shen Huiming’s concern, Suo Yang smiled, “It’s okay.”

       He looked at the wine glass in front of him, felt a little thirsty, picked it up and took another sip.

       “Have something to eat.” Shen Huiming put the pastries on the table in front of Suo Yang, “Your stomach can’t take it if you just drink.”

       Suo Yang smiled, “Thank you.”

       Shen Huiming wanted to chat with him as much as possible, but he found that it was too difficult. Unless Suo Yang was willing to take the initiative to tell him some deep stories, no one could pry his mouth open.

       Suo Yang stretched out his hand and picked up a pineapple cake. He hesitated when he opened his mouth to bite, and finally took a bite.

       The pineapple cake tasted good, but the crumbs fell on him in all directions with this bite.

       He lowered his head and frowned.

       Shen Huiming smiled.

       Suo Yang looked at him uncertainly, his eyes were full of questions: What are you laughing at?

       Shen Huiming said, “I think your expression just now was a little cute.”

       Cute?

       It was the first time anyone had used the word to describe him.

       “Take a tissue with you.” Shen Huiming handed him the tissue, “Or, I’ll help you take it.”

       Suo Yang chuckled lightly, took the tissue and thanked him.

       Next to them, on Shen Huiming’s left, Jiang Tongyan was being forced to drink with the dance partner he just met.

       “Gege, I’m telling you, I’m really too miserable.” The young man who had danced with him was forcibly holding Jiang Tongyan’s arm, and was already drunk at this moment, “How come nobody loves me? I counted yesterday, in twenty-three years, I’ve been rejected twenty-three times, How come I’m so miserable? Am I not good-looking?”

       Jiang Tongyan’s head hurt from his noises and he kept dodging back.

       He ducked back and could only crowd in Shen Huiming.

       The more he squeezed Shen Huiming, the more Shen Huiming had to get closer to Suo Yang in order to avoid him.

       Shen Huiming reluctantly said to Suo Yang, “Sorry, these two are really… Shall we change places?”

       At this moment, Suo Yang had been pushed into the corner, and as long as he relaxed, he and Shen Huiming’s legs would stick together.

       That was too ambiguous.

       Of course, he knew that Shen Huiming didn’t do it on purpose, and he also saw the drunken scene between the two behind him.

       “It’s a little stuffy here,” Suo Yang said, “I want to go out and get some air.”

       “I’ll accompany you.” Shen Huiming and Suo Yang stood up together.

       As soon as he stood up, Jiang Tongyan, who was leaning on him, fell directly on the sofa, and the “poor little man” who was so drunk and burst into tears threw himself on Jiang Tongyan.

       Suo Yang couldn’t hold back and laugh.

       Jiang Tongyan felt that this was the end, and he had already been executed before the love rival battle with Shen Huiming had even begun.

       He watched the two of them walk out of the room together, and he could only helplessly take a tissue and wipe the tears of the little drunk who was bawling in his arms.

       He felt that his life was really bitter. Wasn’t Sou Yang his blind date? Why had he left with someone else?

Chapter 90

       The air in the room was still stiflingly hot and humid.

       The conversation between them two made everyone else feel that the atmosphere was a little weird, but Luo Fei still had a smile on his face and was comfortably lying on his back for someone to give him a back massage.

       Sammy, who was still waiting for Li Zhenran, couldn’t help and asked, “Sir, do you want to continue?”

       Li Zhenran said to Li Zhenruo, “You’ll see, everything can be proven.” After that, he went back to the reclining chair and sat down, letting Sammy continue to massage him.

       Sammy glanced at Li Zhenruo and asked Li Zhenran curiously, “What were you talking about just now?”

       Li Zhenran raised his head, half-closed his eyes, and said, “Just guess it.”

       Sammy said, “I guess? His friend is your old lover?”

       Li Zhenran smiled and said nothing.

       Sammy massaged his shoulders skillfully, slowly lowered his palms, and said, “Sir, you are in such a good shape.”

       Li Zhenran didn’t stop him, but at this moment, Li Zhenruo suddenly stood up.

       Sammy was startled for some reason, and subconsciously stood up and looked straight at him, only to find that Li Zhenruo didn’t look at them, but walked directly to the bathroom.

       Walking to the side of the bath, Li Zhenruo took off the bathrobe. When he changed his clothes, he didn’t think he was coming to take a bath, and he was still wearing a pair of underwear underneath.

       At this time, Li Zhenruo hooked his fingers on the edge of his underwear and was about to slowly take them off when Luo Fei stood up and said to the two young men, “You guys go out first, I’ll go to the sauna.”

       After he said that, Luo Fei put on his bathrobe and walked toward the sauna.

       When they heard what he said, the two young people had to go out one after the other. Sammy was a little reluctant and threw a wink at Li Zhenran.

       All of a sudden, only Li Zhenruo and Li Zhenran were left in this room.

       Li Zhenruo had taken off half of his pants, and wondered about what he was afraid of, he couldn’t put them back on again, so he simply took it off and stepped into the pool and sat down.

       The water temperature was just right, but the water in the pool was very clear and the scenery inside was unobstructed.

       Li Zhenruo picked up a clean towel folded by the pool, dipped it in water and put it on his shoulders. He heard Li Zhenran’s footsteps coming over but did not turn around to look.

       Until Li Zhenran sat down by the pool, stretched his feet into the pool water, and asked him, “Where do you live now?”

       Li Zhenruo glanced at him slowly, “What’s the point of asking that?”

       Li Zhenran said, “I just want to know if you are doing well?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “It’s not me that you care about.”

       Li Zhenran reached out and stroked his hair.

       “What for?” Li Zhenruo moved his head to avoid it.

       Li Zhenran said, “Since the person I care about is no longer there, it’s good to see you for a while.”

       Li Zhenruo frowned, “Don’t treat me like the replacement of your affection.”

       Li Zhenran replied, “It’s not an affection, it’s just nostalgia, just like looking at a photo.”

       Li Zhenruo actually didn’t know whether he should be angry or indifferent at this time. After all, he was not really Shen Luming, and his emotions are all those of Li Zhenruo’s and none of those of this soul.

       Li Zhenran’s fingers rested on the back of his neck and gently rubbed it.

       Li Zhenruo reached out to hold his hand and turned to look at him.

       Li Zhenran said, “There’s a mole there, do you know it yourself?”

       Li Zhenruo stood up and said to Li Zhenran, “It doesn’t matter if I know, you can miss me like a photo, but I am a whole person, please don’t play with me like a doll.”

       After he said that, Li Zhenruo walked to the edge of the pool and raised his legs to step out. However, the bottom of the pool was a little slippery, and he fell over the side with one leg unsteadily, just in time to be caught in Li Zhenran’s arms.

       Li Zhenran picked him up and put him outside the bath.

       Luo Fei was seeing this scene when he came out. He said to Li Zhenruo, “Although Mr. Li is our big client, you don’t need to sacrifice yourself to help the business talk. So be more restrained in public.”

       Li Zhenruo gritted his teeth and replied, “Yes boss.”

       As they left the sauna, Luo Fei prepared dinner today and invited other guests besides Li Zhenran, which was why he did not let Li Zhenruo go.

       Xu Shengwen had already made arrangements for dinner.

       There were not many people at dinner, but Li Zhenruo bumped into Hua Yibang.

       The moment Hua Yibang saw Li Zhenruo, his eyes under the lens showed a surprised look. He glanced at Li Zhenran wanting to say something, then followed Li Zhenran to the table in a disciplined manner.

       Tonight was purely a social occasion.

       Li Zhenruo knew one of the guests, Ling Yi. The man was the manager of the Yuegou supermarket chain. Part of Yunlin’s e-commerce network was to build a large online supermarket, purchase and checkout through the computer or mobile client platform, and build a logistics network for home delivery. As for other parts of this e-commerce network, Li Zhenran had more ideas, but they just needed to be realized step by step.

       Li Zhenruo sat next to him and listened. He felt that these things were not very helpful to him at present. His goal was to be able to meet and learn about suitable suppliers from Luo Fei here, starting with an online store and becoming a simple distributor.

       At this dinner, Li Zhenruo and Xu Shengwen, as Luo Fei’s assistants, were, to put it bluntly, here to hold the drinks.

       When he picked up the wine glass, Li Zhenruo suddenly recalled something and suddenly hesitated. The last time he was drunk before, he couldn’t control the cat ears and cat tail showing. He hadn’t remembered it for a long time, but now that he was drinking, the memory jumped out at him.

       Luo Fei had already hinted that Li Zhenruo to toast Li Zhenran and Ling Yi.

       Li Zhenruo was now working for someone else, and even if he wanted to be his own boss, he still had to socialize in the beginning. It would be bad not to overcome this problem. He believed that as he gradually became more skilled at controlling his spiritual power, this should not be a big problem.

       So he stood up with his glass. Li Zhenruo first toasted Ling Yi with a glass of wine, then walked up to Li Zhenran and said, “Boss Li, I toast to you.”

       Li Zhenran picked up the wine glass and stood up, clinking the glasses with him politely, and then drank it.

       Li Zhenruo walked to his seat and sat down, and felt as if he was beginning to feel a little dizzy. He could not be blamed for his poor drinking capacity, and he had to blame Shen Luming for that.

       After three rounds of drinking, Li Zhenruo had begun to feel less sober. He tossed and reached out to touch the top of his head because his back was facing the wall. If the tail came out for a while, no one would see it, but it would be bad if the ears came out.

       Ling Yi, who was sitting opposite, saw that he kept touching, and couldn’t help but ask, “What the hell are you touching?”

       For a time, the whole table looked at him.

       Li Zhenruo blurted out, “Ear.”

       Next to him, Xu Shengwen laughed, grabbed his hand and touched his ear, “The ear is here.”

       Li Zhenran and Luo Fei looked at each other, Luo Fei couldn’t help but shake his head and laugh.

       Everyone thought he drank too much. Except for Li Zhenran and Luo Fei, no one thought too much.

       It was just that Li Zhenruo touched the back of his buttocks uneasily again, but since he didn’t feel it, he didn’t touch it again, but suddenly he felt something.

       The chair’s feet scraping on the floor made a lot of noise, and by this time everyone was sitting around chatting in a low voice, so once again everyone looked over at him.

       Li Zhenruo took two steps back, his back was against the wall, and his face was flushed with alcohol. He then said, “I’m going to the bathroom.”

       At that moment, he clearly touched something fluffy, and he was sure that his tail came out.

       Luo Fei actually had a smile in his eyes, but he said with a stern face, “If you want to go to the bathroom just go to the bathroom, what’s all the fuss about? Do you want me to walk you there?”

       Li Zhenruo shook his head quickly, “No, I’ll go by myself.”

       He kept his back against the wall and entered the bathroom. After locking the door, he started to touch the back of his butt over and over again and twisted his waist to look in the mirror. After looking at it for a long time, he didn’t find a tail.

       What was that furry thing just now?

       At this time outside, a waiter took the opportunity to come in for dessert and took away the keychain that he had dropped on top of Li Zhenruo’s chair when he was pouring the wine.

       There was a white fur ball hanging on the keychain, which was exactly what Li Zhenruo touched with his finger just now.

       With no tail or ears, Li Zhenruo breathed a sigh of relief, sat on the toilet lid, leaned his head against the wall and fell asleep like that.

       It wasn’t until later that the people outside were ready to leave that Li Zhenran asked the waiter to bring the bathroom key and open the door from the outside.

       Before Luo Fei left, he asked, “Are you going to take care of him?”

       Li Zhenran nodded, “I’ll do it.”

       Li Zhenruo woke up when the waiter opened the door. He sat up and looked outside blankly, “Where’s the boss?”

       Li Zhenran stood at the door of the bathroom and told him, “They have left.” Then he said to the waiter, “It’s alright, I’ll take care of him.”

       The waiter nodded politely and left first.

       Li Zhenruo stood up, took two steps outside, and suddenly stopped to touch the top of his head and buttocks, but nothing strange was found.

       Li Zhenran told him, “The ears are not showing and neither is the tail, don’t worry.”

       Li Zhenruo turned to look at him, “I’m leaving, Mr. Li.” After speaking, he passed by Li Zhenran and walked outside.

       Li Zhenran followed behind him, “I’ll send you off.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “How dare I trouble you, I’ll just go back by myself.”

       Li Zhenran took it easy, “I should always complete the tasks that your boss gave me.”

       The two came out of the hotel one after the other, and Li Zhenruo stood on the side of the road trying to stop the car.

       Li Zhenran grabbed his arm to stop him, “I have asked the driver to drive over, come with me.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at him, “Mr. Li, show some respect, I am not Li Zhenruo.”

       Li Zhenran let go of his hand, “I respect you, I just want to take you home.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I don’t need a ride from you, aren’t you going to respect my opinion?”

       Li Zhenran suddenly pointed to the top of his head, “Cat ears.”

       Li Zhenruo froze and was about to reach out to touch them when suddenly a coat came down over his head and Li Zhenran grabbed him by the shoulders and said, “The car is here, there are too many people here, get in and talk.”

       Under the influence of alcohol, Li Zhenruo couldn’t react properly, and he couldn’t judge whether his ears were really coming out. He was led by Li Zhenran to the car before he pulled off Li Zhenran’s coat and threw it to him, “Take it away, I don’t want to smell you.”

       His nose was too sensitive, and the smell of Li Zhenran was all over his coat, which made his breathing a little hard.

       Li Zhenran grabbed the coat and didn’t get angry. He then said, “Why do you drink so much since you can’t drink it? Come back to me, you don’t have to work so hard.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m doing fine now. I want to live the life I choose, not the one others have paved for me to go.”

       Li Zhenran said softly, “You can choose any path, I’m just giving you a choice.”

       Li Zhenruo turned to look at him, “Thank you, Mr. Li, but no need.”

       Li Zhenran said to him, “Okay, you can always come to me at any time if you need it.”

Chapter 89

       Li Zhenruo had little to pack for his move. He had almost nothing to pack, not even clothes, so he moved into the house that Luo Fei prepared for him empty-handed.

       The so-called staff dormitory was actually a suite prepared by Luo Fei who didn’t want him to continue to sleep with Feng Junyuan. It was very close to the company and the surrounding environment was not bad.

       The room was fully furnished but still lacked some daily necessities. The boss Luo Fei was very considerate and asked the company to give him a month’s salary in advance, and let him buy it himself when he moved in.

       Li Zhenruo went to the supermarket and simply moved back to a cat bed so that he wouldn’t have to buy a set of bedding. He wasn’t uncomfortable sleeping by himself.

       At night, Li Zhenruo stayed alone in his room reading a book. He asked Song Jun to go to the school library to help him borrow many books related to logistics. He didn’t know anything yet, so he could only quietly study more.

       When he was tired of reading, Li Zhenruo went to take a shower, blow-dried his hair, turned into a cat and curled himself up in the cat’s bed to go to sleep.

       Luo Fei was generally a good boss to get along with, and he had more than one assistant around him, so Li Zhenruo’s job was relatively easy at the moment.

       Li Zhenruo had a lot of curiosity about the identity Luo Fei had. In the beginning, Li Zhenran helped him get his ID card through Luo Fei’s connections.

       Li Zhenruo was not without common sense, it wasn’t easy to get a real ID card in such a short time. He believed that there must be a powerful backup behind Luo Fei, or else Luo Fei was not actually a human being.

       What was it? A great demon like his master?

       For this question, Li Zhenruo asked Feng Junyuan curiously.

       With an “Ah” Feng Junyuan said, “Can’t tell you.”

       Li Zhenruo said strangely, “Why can’t you tell me?”

       Feng Junyuan said firmly, “I can’t say it.” No matter what method Li Zhenruo tried, he couldn’t pry Luo Fei’s mouth open.

       That afternoon, Luo Fei went out with another assistant, Xu Shengwen, and left Li Zhenruo to stay at the company.

       Li Zhenruo was looking through the documents in the office, and shortly afterwards he received a call from Xu Shengwen, asking him to bring over a document from Luo Fei’s desk.

       After he hung up, Li Zhenruo did as Xu Shengwen instructed and found the document inside the kraft paper bag on Luo Fei’s desk.

       He took the documents and asked the company’s driver to drive him to the address given by Xu Shengwen, which was a commercial club in the city with a bathing sauna inside. When Luo Fei went out at noon, he said he was doing some business talk, and now Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but silently cursed at Luo Fei’s carefree business talk.

       The driver dropped him off at an address, and Li Zhenruo called Xu Shengwen while walking inside after getting off the car.

       Xu Shengwen was waiting for Li Zhenruo at the door of the private room. When he saw him coming, he said, “Jason, please send the documents to Mr. Luo inside.”

       Li Zhenruo had planned to hand the documents to Xu Shengwen, but at this time he had to withdraw his hand and asked, “I’m going in?” He didn’t understand why he had to go instead of Xu Shengwen, but as Xu Shengwen was a senior and he was still in his internship, he would naturally do what he was told to do.

       Xu Shengwen just smiled and patted his shoulder and said, “Go ahead.”

       Li Zhenruo then took the document and wanted to walk into the private room, but was stopped by the staff at the door of the private room, and said politely, “Sir, please change first.”

       “Change clothes?” Li Zhenruo looked up at the top of the private room door and saw no obvious signs. However, he still obeyed the request of the waiter and went down to the dressing room next to him to change clothes under the guidance of the staff.

       When he looked back at Xu Shengwen, he saw that the other party smiled kindly at him, which was a little unclear.

       Li Zhenruo was taken to the dressing room and changed into a bathrobe. All other valuables were kept in the wardrobe of the dressing room. He only used a waterproof bag to pack the documents, and then went back to the private room wearing slippers.

       As soon as the private room door was opened, the water vapour coming from the shop was wrapped in a familiar scent.

       Li Zhenruo sniffed, and he could clearly smell the scent belonging to Li Zhenran.

       There was a bath in this private room, and there was a sauna next to it.

       There were three people in the private room. Luo Fei was lying on the massage table, covered with a bath towel, with a young man beside him massaging his shoulders, and there was a person sitting with his back to him in the bathtub. He didn’t need to look to know that it was Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenruo just glanced at Li Zhenran’s back, then walked towards Luo Fei and said, “Mr. Luo, I brought the documents.”

       Luo Fei raised his head and glanced at him, but only said “um” and said nothing else.

       Li Zhenruo looked at the handsome young man who was massaging him and regretted that he had left his mobile phone in the locker in the locker room, otherwise he should have taken some photos and sent them to Feng Junyuan.

       Luo Fei didn’t give any orders, and Li Zhenruo stood beside him without moving.

       At this time, there was the sound of water coming from the bathtub, and Li Zhenruo subconsciously turned to look and saw that Li Zhenran was about to get up from the water.

       Li Zhenruo subconsciously glanced at the young man beside him, then turned to look at Li Zhenran, saw that he stood up and did not come out immediately, but took a bathrobe and put it on before stepping out of the bathtub.

       Li Zhenran seemed to have lost weight.

       In fact, it was only a month away from the last day he saw Li Zhenran, but Li Zhenruo felt that Li Zhenran seemed to be really thin. He stared at Li Zhenran’s clearly visible collarbone and his increasingly sharp jawline.

       It wasn’t until Li Zhenran sat down on the chair next to him that Li Zhenruo averted his gaze.

       “Xiao Tuan,” Luo Fei said suddenly, “Read the document to Mr. Li.”

       Li Zhenruo nodded, walked to Li Zhenran’s side, opened the waterproof bag and took out the document. At this time, Li Zhenran reached out to him, “I’ll read it myself.”

       Without Luo Fei’s consent, Li Zhenruo did not immediately hand him the document but looked at Luo Fei.

       Luo Fei said, “Let’s give it to Mr. Li to read for himself. This is the document I told you came out from above. The policy will change, and the price change is natural. You can wait until the official document come down from above, and then consider whether you are going to regret it or not.”

       The latter sentence was said to Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran took over the document and did not rush to open it, but looked at Li Zhenruo and said, “I remember your name is Shen Luming?”

       Li Zhenruo said to him, “Now my name is Li Tuan.”

       Li Zhenran nodded, “Can you sit for a while and wait for me?”

       “Of course,” Li Zhenruo sat down beside him.

       Li Zhenran opened the document, but said to Li Zhenruo, “You didn’t study at university anymore?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “I can’t continue to study at university now.”

       Li Zhenran asked him, “What about your girlfriend?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I can wait for her to graduate.”

       Then the two were silent for a short time.

       Li Zhenran flipped through the documents, but Li Zhenruo felt a little bored, so he stood up and pulled the placket.

       “Are you used to working here at Luo Fei’s?” In the quiet room, Li Zhenran suddenly asked again.

       Li Zhenruo looked back at him and said nothing.

       Li Zhenran then raised his head and waited for him.

       Li Zhenruo noticed Li Zhenran’s protruding collarbone again, he turned his head and looked forward, “There’s nothing to get used to, you get used to it as you do it, people are like that.”

       Li Zhenran said, “But I’m still not used to it.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t answer him.

       Li Zhenran said to himself, “It’s like there’s something missing in my life, and I can’t get used to it.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “You will get used to it gradually, or you will find something else to fill in.”

       The young man who had been concentrating on massaging Luo Fei couldn’t help but look up at the two of them when he heard them talking.

       At this time, Luo Fei buried his head and said, “I didn’t ask you to come here to flirt with my guest.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “When did I flirt with your guest? Besides, you said it was your guest. I’m helping my boss to accompany the customer, shouldn’t you give me more bonus?”

       Luo Fei let out a laugh, “Talking to your boss like that? You think I’m your old boss?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “I’m sorry, you are my first boss, and I have never followed other bosses.”

       Li Zhenran had already read the document by now and handed it back to Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo took it and put it in the waterproof bag.

       Luo Fei asked Li Zhenran, “How was it?”

       Li Zhenran said, “I will seriously consider your suggestion just now.”

       Li Zhenruo sorted out the documents and asked Luo Fei, “Boss, is there anything else?”

       Luo Fei said, “Wait a minute.”

       Li Zhenruo could only wait beside him in silence.

       Luo Fei said to the young man beside him, “Call someone to come and give Mr Li a shoulder massage.”

       The young man replied, “Okay,” he left Luo Fei and walked outside. When he reached the door, he seemed to remember that there was another person in the room, and turned back and asked, “Only for one person?”

       Luo Fei asked Li Zhenruo, “Do you need it?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “No need.”

       Luo Fei said to the young man, “One person is enough.” Then he told Li Zhenruo: “Don’t be in a hurry, and sit down next to him first.”

       There was a small table next to it, with fruit plates and drinks on it.

       Li Zhenruo was polite, walked over and sat down to eat a few grapes.

       Soon another young man came in, this time he had dyed blond hair and was very handsome. He said with a smile on his face, “Hello, my name is Sammy, may I ask which gentleman needs a massage.”

       Luo Fei pointed in the direction of Li Zhenran.

       Sammy walked over to the empty massage table and said, “Sir, come and lie down.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at Li Zhenran.

       As a result, Li Zhenran said, “No need, just sit and massage.”

       Sammy seemed a little surprised, “It’s uncomfortable to massage while sitting. Lying on your stomach is the most comfortable.”

       At this time, the young man who was massaging Luo Fei couldn’t help but interjected, “Just do as the customer tells you.”

       “Oh,” Sammy then walked behind Li Zhenran, put both hands on his shoulders, and started massaging him.

       Li Zhenruo looked at them expressionlessly while eating grapes.

       Sammy said, “Sir your shoulders are so stiff, you haven’t worked out much lately, have you?”

       Li Zhenran didn’t answer.

       Luo Fei said, “Why do you ask so many questions?”

       Li Zhenruo was a little bored, he stretched out his arms, and the bathrobe was falling halfway down, revealing half of his shoulders and chest.

       Li Zhenran suddenly stood up and walked up to him to help him pull up the bathrobe.

       “What for?” Li Zhenruo was a little surprised by his sudden action.

       Li Zhenran squatted in front of him, helped him pull the bathrobe, and then re-fastened his belt.

       Li Zhenruo looked down and saw the top of Li Zhenran’s head, and then saw Li Zhenran raise his head and said to him, “This is the body of the person I love the most, don’t just expose it to others like that.”

       Li Zhenruo was stunned and said to him, “It has nothing to do with you anymore.”

       Li Zhenran stood up and looked down at him, “Can you tell me what he said to you last?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Do you want to know?”

       Li Zhenran replied, “I want to know.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “He said he loves you, but he is afraid that you will lie to him.”

       Li Zhenran said, “I won’t lie to him again.”

       Li Zhenruo shook his head, “How does he know you’re not lying to him with that words?”


Notes:
Why does it feel that Li Zhenran didn’t even think Li Zhenruo is dead? Either he’s hoping so much Zhenruo is not dead yet or… He already see through the plan

Chapter 13

       The place where they ate was at Fuxiang House, a local restaurant, and the restaurant was on the second floor along the street. The evening was the best time for the business, the lobby was full of guests when they entered, and there was a lively clamour everywhere.

       Chen Yuncheng followed Zhang Wenyong through the crowd, and a waiter greeted them halfway through and took them to a private room inside.

       As soon as the private room door opened, Chen Yuncheng saw six or seven people sitting around the round table. All of them were young people, two or three of whom he knew.

       Everyone he knew greeted him, and some even stood up and called out “Yong ge,” then nodded to him and called, “Cheng ge.”

       Zhang Wenyong sat on the main seat opposite the door and said with a smile, “Still remember your Cheng ge, eh.” As soon as Zhang Wenyong sat down, someone handed him a cigarette, and then someone took a lighter to help him light it.

       Chen Yuncheng found a seat by himself and sat down.

       The private room was small, with the door closed and the air conditioner on, the whole room was filled with smoke and the air was foul.

       The young man that sat next to Chen Yuncheng originally knew him, but at this time he didn’t talk to him again, and didn’t even look at him.

       Chen Yuncheng was still at ease, he opened his jacket to reveal the cotton shirt inside, glanced around the table, and asked, “Is Anlin here yet?”

       Zhang Wenyong answered him with a cigarette in his mouth, “Don’t be in a hurry, I’ve already sent someone to pick him up.”

       Chen Yuncheng calmly said, “I’m not in a hurry.”

       There were five or six dishes of cold dishes on the round table, no one touched the chopsticks, everyone was smoking and chatting, and only Chen Yuncheng occasionally took a sip from the teacup in front of him, and soon drank the cup to the bottom.

       No one helped him to refill his tea, and the waiter in the old restaurant was not attentive. The waiter only opened the door and asked if he should serve the food, and then never came again.

       Chen Yuncheng put the empty cup back.

       After waiting for about 20 minutes, the door of the private room was pushed open again, and a tall, thin young man came in from the door. The young man looked like he was in his twenties. Because of his single eyelids, his eyes were long and narrow, his nose was high, his lips were thin, and his hair was cut so short that his scalp could almost be seen.

       As soon as he entered the door, Zhang Wenyong stood up immediately and greeted him with a smile, “Anlin, you are finally back.”

       The others followed Zhang Wenyong and stood up to look at the person at the door, and Chen Yuncheng also stood up slowly.

       Guan Anlin stood at the door, his eyes swept across the faces of everyone and finally stopped in front of Chen Yuncheng. He stared blankly at Chen Yuncheng for a few seconds, then walked towards Zhang Wenyong, and called out “Yong ge”, before he raised his hand and hugged him.

       Zhang Wenyong patted him on the back, “You have suffered for the past two years.”

       Guan Anlin didn’t speak and just shook his head.

       After that, Zhang Wenyong introduced him to the young people at this table one by one. Two of whom Guan Anlin knew, while the rest were people he met for the first time.

       Chen Yuncheng watched Guan Anlin shook hands with those people with a calm and indifferent expression, and felt that he didn’t look like the Guan Anlin he remembered at all.

       It was not until the end that Zhang Wenyong pointed to Chen Yuncheng and said to Guan Anlin, “Chen Yuncheng, you still remember him, right?”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t extend his hand, just looked at Guan Anlin earnestly, and said to him, “Anlin.”

       Guan Anlin didn’t respond, and said coldly, “I don’t recognize this person anymore.”

       Zhang Wenyong was smoking a cigarette with the expression of watching a good show. When he heard this, he patted Guan Anlin on the shoulder with a smile, and said, “It’s okay if you don’t recognise him. Let’s sit down to eat first, and then take your time to talk.”

       Guan Anlin’s seat was opposite of Chen Yuncheng. Before he sat down, he took off his dark jacket. Inside was a tight black jumper, which completely outlined his figure. One could see that his chest and arms were all tightly muscled. These were muscles that had been developed over a long period of time doing physical work, not exaggerated but very powerful.

       At this time, Zhang Wenyong called the waiter to serve hot dishes and then asked the accompanying junior to open a bottle of white wine. For a while, the whole private room was lively, and everyone was busy pouring wine and toasting.

       Only Chen Yuncheng was free, no one toasted him, and no one took the initiative to talk to him.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t eat much food. He just glanced at Guan Anlin occasionally as the smoke filled the room. He wanted to chat with Guan Anlin, but he wasn’t sure if Guan Anlin wanted to chat with him.

       Guan Anlin never looked at Chen Yuncheng again except for the moment he first came in.

       Zhang Wenyong didn’t intend to simply let Chen Yuncheng go. When three-quarters of the meal was eaten, he suddenly said to Guan Anlin, “Anlin, you said you don’t recognize Chen Yuncheng, do you mean you don’t want to pursue the past? “

       Guan Anlin probably didn’t expect Zhang Wenyong to suddenly say this. He raised his hand and placed the chopsticks in front of him neatly on the table. He asked Zhang Wenyong, “Yong ge, what do you think I should pursue?”

       The whole private room was quiet and listened to them.

       Zhang Wenyong had been smoking all night. He tapped his finger on the table and said, “For those of us who are out and about, the most taboo thing is not to preach about morality, don’t you think so?”

       Guan Anlin didn’t speak, he was also smoking and stared at the bowl in front of him as if he was a little lost.

       Zhang Wenyong didn’t care if he didn’t get an answer and continued, “At that time you went in so suddenly that we couldn’t look into many things in detail. Now I’m asking you, did someone betray you?”

       He was asking Guan Anlin, but his eyes kept looking at Chen Yuncheng.

       Guan Anlin raised his head and looked at Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng faced them calmly.

       Zhang Wenyong said, “Anlin, don’t be afraid, you are Yong ge’s brother. If something happens, Yong ge will naturally help you out clean up those who should be cleaned up.”

       Guan Anlin looked at Chen Yuncheng. After a long time, he put the cigarette between his fingers to his lips, took a slow breath, and said, “Thank you Yong ge, but there are some things I want to handle by myself.”

       Zhang Wenyong was a little surprised and asked him, “Are you sure?”

       Guan Anlin nodded, “I’m sure.”

       Zhang Wenyong seemed unhappy, his face slumped slightly, and he leaned back on the back of the chair, but still said, “Fine, two years have passed anyway, there’s no rush.”

       After he finished speaking, Chen Yuncheng said to Guan Anlin, “Anlin, can we talk?”

       Guan Anlin looked at Chen Yuncheng, and before he could answer, the private room door was pushed open from the outside. Zhou Yan walked in a hurry, carrying a cold air that had not yet been dispersed, and said, “Yong ge, I’m sorry I just had something, I’m late.”

       After he finished speaking, he saw Chen Yuncheng, and his whole body suddenly stopped in place.

       Chen Yuncheng frowned and looked at Zhou Yan.

       Zhou Yan said softly, “Cheng ge, I didn’t know you were here today.”

       Chen Yuncheng stood up and asked Zhang Wenyong, “Yong ge, I have something to tell Zhou Yan, do you have anything else?”

       Zhang Wenyong didn’t answer, just glanced at Guan Anlin.

       Guan Anlin’s expression was cold.

       Zhang Wenyong spread his hands, “Anlin said he wanted to handle it himself, so from now on, it’s none of my business, so help yourself.”

       Only then did Zhou Yan notice Guan Anlin, with a surprised expression, “Lin ge? You are out?”

       Chen Yuncheng had already walked toward Zhou Yan and said to him, “Let’s go, I have something to ask you.”

       At this time, Guan Anlin called out in a cold voice, “Chen Yuncheng.”

       Chen Yuncheng turned his head and said to Guan Anlin, “Anlin, I’ll find you later, we can sit down and talk slowly.”

       After he said that, he took the lead and walked out of the private room. Zhou Yan immediately followed.


The author has something to say:

Although there are a few supporting roles, the process will take some words, but there is no cannon fodder.

There are many people who like Chen Yuncheng, but the only one who wants to sleep with him is Ning Junyan
