Chapter 17

       Guan Anlin actually didn’t want to do anything to Chen Yuncheng. He only appeared here tonight just to meet Chen Yuncheng.

       He heard Chen Yuncheng’s voice in the darkness, and knowing that the other party could not see him, he reached out to stop the man, but he did not expect the man behind Chen Yuncheng to strike without mercy.

       Guan Anlin’s family was poor. After graduating from junior high school, he came out to work in society and was imprisoned for two years. He had fought countless fights since he was a child, and few of them could be his opponent, but the man in front of him was very strong. Once the man grabbed his neck, he held it firmly, and it made him feel suffocated almost instantly.

       He twisted his hand and tried to pull his fingers free while raising his knee to kick at the other man.

       The man reacted quickly, raising his leg to block his leg, and at the same time, his hand was gripping harder, choking Guan Anlin to the point where he almost lost the ability to resist.

       At this time, Chen Yuncheng grabbed the hand that was choking Guan Anlin’s neck, and said hastily, “This is my friend, let go first.”

       The indifferent Ning Junyan turned to look at Chen Yuncheng before slowly releasing the hand that was choking Guan Anlin.

       Guan Anlin stepped back and leaned against the wall, raised his hand to cover his neck, coughed twice in pain, then looked at Ning Junyan next to Chen Yuncheng, and hesitated to raise a hand to strike again.

       This time, Chen Yuncheng grabbed his arm, frowned, and said, “Are you here to fight today?”

       Guan Anlin didn’t speak, but still stared at Ning Junyan fiercely for a while, then turned to look at Chen Yuncheng and said, “I’m here to find you.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Are you free to have a good chat with me?”

       Ning Junyan stood quietly beside Chen Yuncheng without speaking.

       Guan Anlin said, “I’m free, but you don’t seem to be free.”

       Chen Yuncheng knew that Guan Anlin minded Ning Junyan’s presence here, but he was unwilling to make Ning Junyan leave now for Guan Anlin’s sake, so he said, “We still have plenty of time to talk as long as you want.”

       Guan Anlin turned around and left.

       “Anlin!” Chen Yuncheng shouted at him, “Are you planning to continue following Zhang Wenyong?”

       Guan Anlin stopped, turned around, and said, “What does it have to do with you?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “As I said, Zhang Wenyong only has money in his eyes, and everything he wants you to do is to use you. If he really considered you a brother, he wouldn’t have encouraged you to do those things!”

       Guan Anlin was moved, turned around, and strode closer to Chen Yuncheng, “You think of me as a brother? You think of me as a brother but you would stand by and watch me go to jail?”

       Ning Junyan took half a step forward at this time, blocking half of Chen Yuncheng’s body, and preventing Guan Anlin from approaching.

       Guan Anlin then stopped again, laughed self-deprecatingly, and turned to leave again.

       Chen Yuncheng shouted at his back, “Have you ever thought that if you hadn’t been in jail for two years, you might have been arrested and sentenced to ten or twenty years? I’m sorry, but what else could I have done then?”

       Guan Anlin didn’t look back this time and kept walking along the street, his back gradually becoming blurred under the streetlights.

       Chen Yuncheng sighed.

       Ning Junyan turned to look at him, “Let’s go back?”

       Chen Yuncheng nodded, “Yeah.”

       The two stopped at the door of Chen Yuncheng’s small kiosk.

       Chen Yuncheng’s mood was not too good. He squatted down, unlocked it with the key, and pulled the shutter door halfway up. When he looked up at Ning Junyan, his expression changed into a smile again and said, “I’ll call you a taxi.”

       Ning Junyan stood under the streetlight, his shadow was stretched and half of it overlapped Chen Yuncheng’s body, he asked, “Why calling me a taxi?”

       Chen Yuncheng said with a smile, “You’ve been gone for so long to bring me back, and I can’t take you back again, so it’s not too much to call a taxi for you, right?”

       Ning Jun said, “It’s not too much.”

       Chen Yuncheng lowered his head and used the taxi app to call for a taxi. When he entered the address, he stopped and looked up at Ning Junyan, “Where do you live?”

       Ning Junyan said, “I’ll just get a taxi directly.”

       Chen Yuncheng said quickly, “No, I want to take you back safely.” He handed the phone to Ning Junyan, “You can get lost by yourself.”

       Ning Junyan took his cell phone and entered the address of the community where he lived now.

       When he was typing, Chen Yuncheng stood beside him and looked at him, and suddenly said, “After not seeing you for so many years, you’re still so good at fighting. I thought you’d become rusty after becoming a doctor and rarely fight with people.”

       Ning Junyan returned the phone to him and said, “That’s a human instinct, and it’s impossible to be rusty as long as one lives.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and tapped the button for calling a car. When he saw that the taxi was coming in five minutes, he put away his phone and said, “But you’d better not get into a fight with just anyone right now.”

       Ning Junyan said, “I know how far I should go. I won’t hurt anyone.”

       “I know you have a sense of propriety,” Chen Yuncheng said, “I’m just afraid you’ll accidentally hurt your hand. You’re going to have an operation, your hand is so valuable now!”

       Ning Junyan looked at him quietly. After a while, he raised his hand and stretched it out in front of Chen Yuncheng. The hand that was very precious in Chen Yuncheng’s eyes was also very beautiful. The fingers were slender, with well-defined joints. The nails were trimmed short and round, and they were also very clean.

       For a moment, Chen Yuncheng almost thought that Ning Junyan was going to touch his face, but Ning Junyan just helped him tidy up the scarf around his neck with his hands, and his movements were gentle. It was clearly the same hand that had just firmly strangled Guan Anlin’s neck, almost choking him.

       When Ning Junyan retracted his hand, he said, “Don’t be upset.”

       Chen Yuncheng froze for a moment at his words and looked at him in a daze.

       By this time, the taxi Chen Yuncheng had called for Ning Junyan had arrived, and the driver parked the taxi on the side of the road.

       Ning Junyan said, “I’m leaving.”

       Chen Yuncheng seemed to have just regained his senses. He watched Ning Junyan get into the car, and followed him to the side of the car, waving to Ning Junyan through the taxi window that was lowered.

       Ning Junyan said to him, “You can find me if you need anything, anything at all.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled again and said, “Alright.”

       The driver turned around and asked, “Can we go now?”

       Ning Junyan said, “Let’s go.”

       Chen Yuncheng took two steps back and stood on the side of the road watching the taxi leave.

       In Chen Yuncheng’s memory, Ning Junyan had never lost a fight with anyone.

       At that time, they lived on the outskirts of the city, surrounded by a factory, a large area of undeveloped wasteland, and old houses and streets cluttering the city-rural area.

       The surrounding environment was messy.

       Chen Yuncheng had a problem with a group of gangsters who hadn’t graduated from the junior high school nearby. In fact, he didn’t offend them, but he was often dirty like a little beggar. The gangsters would cuss him, and even throw stones when they saw him.

       He couldn’t deal with so many of them by himself, so he always hides when he could, and didn’t confront them head-on. It was only when Ning Junyan came that the situation changed.
