Guan Anlin had been very busy outside recently, and Chen Yuncheng knew what he was busy with. However, he couldn’t make up his mind about whether to dissuade him.
After all, it was not Chen Yuncheng who sat in prison for those two years. Life in prison was difficult, so no matter how much Guan Anlin hated Yu Jie, Chen Yuncheng could understand it.
Guan Anlin showed a lot of interest in Yu Jie’s so-called investment project. He put a lot of time and energy into Yu Jie’s side and even got to know the staff of Yu Jie’s company well.
Yu Jie’s company was not large in scale. Previously, Long Zhanyu said that he hadn’t found any specific business projects, but Guan Anlin had seen Yu Jie’s company’s accountants doing the finance. Guan Anlin curiously approached her and asked her what she was doing. The accountant said she was doing it for other companies.
Guan Anlin couldn’t understand the complicated information on the bills, so he went to talk to the accountant when he had nothing else to do. The accountant’s surname was Yuan, a young girl in her twenties, with a pair of glasses on her round face, and she was brought to laugh by Guan Anlin.
Yu Jie asked Guan Anlin, “Have you taken a fancy to our little Yuan?”
Guan Anlin smiled and said, “Isn’t she quite cute?”
Yu Jie asked him again, “Are you planning to continue business with Chen Yuncheng?”
Guan Anlin bit his cigarette and said, “It’s tiring and the money isn’t much.”
Yu Jie looked at him with a smirk, “How can you make money by doing business honestly these days?”
Guan Anlin raised his finger and pointed to his head, and said, “He’s too single-minded and he’s been stubborn for so many years. He always thinks that you are the one who caused all of that in the first place.”
Yu Jie put his arms around his shoulders, “How many times have I explained that matter, it was just a misunderstanding, and I was tricked by others, don’t you believe me now?”
“I believe in you. If I didn’t believe you, why would I still be working with you? I’ll just take it easy with Chen Yuncheng now. After all, we’ve been brothers for so many years, I don’t want to fall out with him, I’ll talk to him when the project is up and running.” At this point, Guan Anlin began to urge Yu Jie to hurry up with the formalities and prepare to start their Columbarium tower project.
Yu Jie said, “Don’t be in a hurry, it’s not a day or two things. There are too many people who need to be dealt with by the government. I will take you there to meet the abbot of their temple as soon as it is done.”
After Yu Jie walked away, Guan Anlin took a hard puff of a cigarette and then exhaled a long breath. He lowered his head and thought back on what he said just now. He felt that there should be no flaws, and he couldn’t help feeling a little smug, thinking that now it was his turn to deceive Yu Jie around.
That afternoon, Guan Anlin was sitting next to the accountant’s desk chatting with her. He took out his mobile phone and sent a few messages and found that the battery was dead, so he said to the accountant, “Little Yuan girl, help me charge the battery.”
The accountant’s age was actually not younger than him, but she was very happy to hear him call her little girl, so she took his mobile phone and plugged it into her own charger to charge his phone.
Guan Anlin forgot to bring his mobile phone when he left in the afternoon, took the lift down to the ground floor before he remembered, and took the lift upstairs again.
When he entered the office, the door was still open, but most of the employees had already left, leaving the door of Yu Jie’s office still open with lights on inside.
After hesitating for a while, Guan Anlin didn’t go to greet Yu Jie, but just took his mobile phone and was about to leave. Just as he walked to the door, he passed a short middle-aged man. Guan Anlin took a look at the middle-aged man, felt very strange, and saw that he had entered Yu Jie’s company, so he stopped him and asked, “Who are you looking for?”
The middle-aged man said, “I’ve made an appointment with Boss Yu.”
Guan Anlin nodded and said, “Oh.” He stood there, watching the man enter Yu Jie’s office, without thinking too much, and walked towards the elevator.
As soon as he walked into the elevator, Guan Anlin was suddenly curious about what this person was going to say to Yu Jie at this time, and when he returned, he found that the door of the office had been closed.
Guan Anlin didn’t have a key, so naturally he couldn’t get in. But the door was a glass door, and even though it was locked, you could still see the lights in Yu Jie’s office from the outside. So he must not have left yet and was talking to the man from earlier.
He actually wanted to catch Yu Jie in the act, but he immediately became interested in this middle-aged man who needed to sneak around and talk to Yu Jie behind closed doors, so he took the elevator down to the first floor without leaving, hid in the corner and waited patiently.
Guan Anlin waited until it was almost dark before the middle-aged man came downstairs. After waiting for more than an hour, he secretly took two photos of the man with his mobile phone and hesitantly sent them to Long Zhanyu, “Can you find out what this is?” person?”
Long Zhanyu replied quickly, “I’m not a private detective.”
Guan Anlin didn’t know if Long Zhanyu would help him with the investigation, so he followed the middle-aged man out from a distance and saw him hailing a taxi by the side of the road, so he turned around and walked towards the subway station.
When he was halfway there, Long Zhanyu’s phone call suddenly came.
Guan Anlin answered the phone, and heard Long Zhanyu say, “Where did you meet this person? This man is a fraudster who is on the run online, named Wang Yongcheng.”
Wang Yongcheng? Guan Anlin thought for a while and felt that this name was not familiar to him.
Long Zhanyu continued, “He just lied to the owner of the plastic surgery hospital some time ago, let me see—” There was a click of the mouse from his side, “The person in charge of the case was reported by Shu Rong. He ran away after paying a million rent.”
Guan Anlin reacted immediately, “You said Chen Yuncheng’s evil mother-in-law met a scammer?”
Long Zhanyu said, “What? Oh, it’s Chen Yuncheng’s boyfriend’s mother.”
Guan Anlin stood where he was, held the phone close to his ear, and said, “fvck! I’m sure enough, he hooked up with Yu Jie!”
Long Zhanyu asked him, “Where is the man?”
Guan Anlin returned to the place where Wang Yongcheng left just now, and the taxi was no longer there. He tried to recall the taxi license plate but found that he couldn’t remember it either.
Long Zhanyu said, “Don’t worry, let’s come over and adjust the monitoring to see if we can find any clues.”
Guan Anlin asked him, “Do you want me to wait for you here?”
Long Zhanyu said, “No need, pay attention to your own safety, don’t let Yu Jie and the others notice.”
After he hung up the phone, Guan Anlin looked in the direction the taxi had left, knowing full well that he couldn’t see anything else. At this moment, someone suddenly tapped him on the shoulder from behind him.
Guan Anlin turned around and saw Yu Jie who was smiling all over his face.
Yu Jie asked him, “What are you looking at?”
Guan Anlin followed with a smile, “It’s nothing, why were you working late?”
Yu Jie replied, “I just had a business talk with a friend and I’m getting ready to go back now.”
Guan Anlin nodded, “I’m also planning to go back.”
Yu Jie asked him, “You didn’t drive today, did you? I’ll take you home.”
Guan Anlin didn’t even think about it, and immediately refused, “No, I’ll take the subway.”
Yu Jie put his hands into his coat pockets, the valuable watch on his left wrist was still exposed, and looked at him with a gentle smile, “Why? Wouldn’t it be nice if I gave you a lift? My friend said just now that he saw you waiting downstairs for over an hour, so you should be tired of waiting too.”
Guan Anlin’s face changed, and then he laughed dryly, “Luckily I’m not too tired either, so I’ll go first.”
Yu Jie stood at the same spot, looked at his back as he left, and said to him, “Guan Anlin, you really don’t have a bright mind. you’re really not very bright, you deserve to be useless for the rest of your life, and you can’t make any money. You can only work for others.”
Guan Anlin stopped, turned around and looked at Yu Jie viciously, “What are you trying to say?”
Yu Jie still had that calm look, “I said you have a problem with your head. I genuinely wanted to take you to make money, and what happened back then, if Chen Yuncheng hadn’t called the police, would you have been arrested and jailed? Instead of holding a grudge against him, what do you want to do by coming after me now and keeping an eye on me at all times?”
Guan Anlin walked up to Yu Jie and grabbed his lapels, “If Chen Yuncheng hadn’t called the police, I would have followed you to manufacture drugs, and I would be sentenced to more than just two years in prison by now!”
“That’s why you’re an idiot!” Yu Jie said, “If he hadn’t called the police you wouldn’t have been caught at all, and we would have made a lot of money together. You can’t even afford your own house now! Do you think Chen Yuncheng is being good to you? He doesn’t think of you highly at all. Do you see his attitude towards people like Ning Junyan and his attitude towards you? In his eyes, you are like mud in the gutter, which can’t even be pasted on the wall. You still think you are his brother, you who have been in prison, who would treat you as a brother!”
Guan Anlin raised his fist and was about to hit Yu Jie’s face, almost touching Yu Jie’s face, but he stopped suddenly, he realised that Yu Jie was deliberately provoking him for a reason he didn’t know. Someone like Yu Jie wasn’t worth the punch he threw.
He stared hard at Yu Jie and was just about to let go when he was pushed heavily in the chest by Yu Jie.
Guan Anlin stepped back unconsciously and saw Yu Jie fall to the ground by himself, while he heard a fierce car horn, and then was sent flying into the air by something.
Chen Yuncheng had been restless throughout that afternoon.
The temperature had cooled down a bit in the past two days. As the National Day11st of October approached, the temperature was getting colder by the day. The big trees in the trade market had also begun to lose their leaves with a thick layer of yellow leaves covering the ground.
Ning Junyan was on duty at night, so Chen Yuncheng was not in a hurry to leave. He asked Wu Xiaozhu and Shi Peng to leave work first and stayed behind to wait for Guan Anlin to come back. However, it was almost eight o’clock in the evening but he hadn’t returned.
Chen Yuncheng wanted to make a call to Guan Anlin. He just took out his phone, but before he could dial the number, the phone rang suddenly, and the caller ID showed Long Zhanyu’s name.
“Hello?” Chen Yuncheng’s heart beat violently as he connected the call.
Long Zhanyu’s voice came over, “Guan Anlin had a car accident and had been sent to the hospital for emergency treatment.”
Chen Yuncheng finally knew where the uneasiness in his heart came from. He turned pale for a moment and asked, “Is it serious? Which hospital is it?”
Long Zhanyu said, “It’s very serious. He was sent to the No.2 Hospital.”
That was the hospital where Ning Junyan worked.
