Morbid Addiction

Chapter 95

       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.

Chapter 94

       When he returned home, Chen Yuncheng opened the door and saw that the light in the living room had been switched off, leaving only the kitchen and bedroom with lights on.

       He walked lightly to the side of the sofa and saw Long Zhanyu resting on a pillow, covered with a thin quilt, already fast asleep. Then he walked gently towards the kitchen.

       Ning Junyan was washing dishes in the kitchen.

       Chen Yuncheng walked up to him and said to him, “I’ll continue, you go and take a shower first.”

       Ning Junyan didn’t stop what he was doing. He just turned his head to look at Chen Yuncheng, and said, “You go and shower first.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him, “Then I will stay here with you.”

       Ning Junyan did not object and said in a flat tone, “Then let’s shower together.”

       Chen Yuncheng subconsciously glanced in the direction of the living room outside. He thought that there was still a guest at home, and although it looked like the guest had fallen asleep; if the guest woke up and saw them, he would be embarrassed. So he hesitated and said, “I’d better go shower first. “

       When Ning Junyan returned to the room after taking a shower, it was already very late. When he entered the room, he casually locked the door behind him.

       Chen Yuncheng hadn’t slept yet. He lay on the bed and flipped through the book that Ning Junyan had left next to the pillow, but didn’t read a single word.

       Ning Junyan took off his shoes and went to bed, knelt on the bed like a hunting beast and slowly approached Chen Yuncheng until he was completely pressed under him.

       Chen Yuncheng was crushed for a moment and couldn’t move, pretending to struggle, “You are going to crush me to death.”

       Ning Junyan grabbed his neck in one bite.

       Chen Yuncheng was bitten so painfully by him, he shook his head and said, “It hurts! Are you a dog?” But he couldn’t shake Ning Junyan away, and he went back to push him, only to have Ning Junyan clasp his hand and interlock his fingers. The next second Ning Junyan loosened his teeth, turned his head sideways and kissed Chen Yuncheng’s lips.

       He was pinned down until he was breathless, Chen Yuncheng ducked behind and said, “Not tonight.”

       Ning Junyan’s straight nose rubbed against Chen Yuncheng’s cheek, “I’m on duty tomorrow.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “There is still a guest outside.”

       “He fell asleep.”

       “He might wake up.” The soundproofing of this house was average, and Chen Yuncheng really could not guarantee whether Long Zhanyu, who was on the sofa outside, would hear anything through the door when he woke up.

       Ning Junyan’s tone couldn’t have been flatter, “Then let him listen.”

       “Don’t make trouble,” Chen Yuncheng was really crushed to the point where he was almost out of breath and struggled hard to turn over.

       Only then did Ning Junyan lie sideways next to him, giving him the opportunity to close the book he had just pressed under his chest and put it to one side, and turn over on his back to lie on the bed.

       “He was too drunk,” Ning Junyan said without any emotion. Chen Yuncheng didn’t know whether he was happy or not.

       Chen Yuncheng raised his arm and pillowed it under his head, “He’s under too much pressure from work, I guess, and probably needs to relax a bit.” He thought of Long Zhanyu’s state, working hard all year round, and there was only one person at home, and his life was a mess.

       Ning Junyan suddenly reached out and gently covered his eyes.

       “What’s the matter?” Chen Yuncheng pulled his hand away.

       Ning Junyan was unhappy, “You are thinking about him.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him, suddenly smiled, and said, “Didn’t you talk about him first?”

       Ning Junyan denied it expressionlessly, “I didn’t.”

       For a moment, Chen Yuncheng felt that he and Ning Junyan were back in their childhood, lying on the big wooden bed in the old house. He reached out and pinched Ning Junyan’s nose, and said with a smile, “You didn’t? It’s you.”

       Ning Junyan looked down at him, and after a moment of silence said, “Well, it’s me.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt very happy at once. He wrapped his arms around Ning Junyan’s neck, pulled him closer and kissed his lips, and whispered, “I like you so much.”

       After a while, Chen Yuncheng suddenly said, “How about introducing a girlfriend to Long Zhan Yu, is there any young female doctors or nurses who are mainly interested in looks when dating?”

       Ning Junyan replied casually, “How do I know?” He glanced at Chen Yuncheng, “Why didn’t you ask for Guan Anlin?”

       “Guan Anlin is still young, wait two years, let him save money and buy a house. Long Zhanyu is different, he has a house and is a civil servant, so it should be easier.”

       Ning Junyan looked at him and said nothing.

       Chen Yuncheng asked him with a smile, “What are you looking at me for?”

       Ning Junyan said, “You worry too much.”

       Chen Yuncheng did worry about a lot of things. He had been like this since he was a child, and he couldn’t change it anymore, he asked Ning Junyan, “Am I annoying?”

       Ning Junyan replied, “It’s okay, I’ll love you enough.”

       When Chen Yuncheng was about to go to bed, he went out to the living room to take a look and saw that Long Zhanyu was still sleeping soundly, and the quilt was well covered. He then came back to the bedroom and closed the door gently.

       The next morning, Ning Junyan was going to work, and his alarm clock sounded early in the morning. He reached out to find his mobile phone and turned off the alarm clock. He held Chen Yuncheng in his arms and had no intention of getting up.

       Chen Yuncheng shook his hand and said, “You’re gonna be late for work.”

       Ning Junyan remained motionless.

       Chen Yuncheng felt that he was born to worry about others, so he reached out and patted Ning Junyan’s face lightly, “Get up.”

       Ning Junyan closed his eyes, and said in a low and slurred voice, “Call me husband.”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help laughing, “Aren’t you annoying? It’s none of my business if you get scolded by your director for being late.” Even if he could accept that Ning Junyan called him wife, he couldn’t call him husband no matter what.

       Ning Junyan lifted the quilt a little annoyed and got out of bed. He opened the closet, took out a clean shirt and trousers, put the shirt on, sat on the edge of the bed and put on his trousers, buttoning his trousers while going outside.

       Chen Yuncheng stopped him, “Get dressed before you go out, there is still a guest outside.”

       Ning Junyan stopped in his tracks as if he just remembered that there was someone sleeping on the sofa in the living room, and he said to Chen Yuncheng, “Come and button it for me.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him for a while, pushed back the quilt and got up, knelt on the bed and reached out to him, “Come here.”

       Ning Junyan walked over, and Chen Yuncheng carefully helped him button up his shirt one by one, and also zipped up his unzipped trousers, and patted him with a smile.

       At this moment, the bedroom door was suddenly opened from the outside before Chen Yuncheng could take back his hand from Ning Junyan’s lower body, and the people inside and outside were all stunned for a moment.

       Long Zhanyu’s hair was dishevelled, and when he saw this scene, he subconsciously said, “fvck!” He then hurriedly apologised and reached out to close the door to the room.

       He didn’t mean to. He lay on the sofa and slept until dawn. He was really woken up by the need to urinate, and he stumbled up from the sofa, trying to find the bathroom. Originally, it was also the first time he came to Chen Yuncheng’s house yesterday, and he was not familiar with the location of the room, so he opened a door straight away before he sobered up from his hangover, and he ended up seeing the host’s family making out and flirting.

       Long Zhanyu stretched out his hand to press his forehead, his mind went blank for a moment before he felt the urge to urinate again and hurriedly turned to find the bathroom.

       When Long Zhanyu came out of the bathroom, he met Ning Junyan who was about to go in. When he saw Ning Junyan, he remembered the scene just now. He couldn’t help being a little embarrassed, but he concealed it well and nodded as a greeting.

       Ning Junyan looked calm, said “Morning”, passed Long Zhanyu and went into the bathroom.

       Long Zhanyu went back to the sofa and sat down, covered his face with his hands, raised his head and yawned, and didn’t put his hands down for a long time.

       Until Chen Yuncheng came out and asked him, “Do you want to sleep a little longer or go out for breakfast with me?”

       Long Zhanyu put down his hands and said, “Not sleepy anymore, let’s go eat.” After finishing speaking, he raised his head towards the bathroom, “What about you…?”

       Chen Yuncheng replied, “He goes to work early and goes to the hospital to eat.”

       Long Zhanyu nodded.

       Before Ning Junyan left, he kissed Chen Yuncheng’s lips.

       Long Zhanyu saw it but pretended he didn’t see anything. When he sat down with Chen Yuncheng in a small restaurant outside and waited to eat rice noodles, he asked Chen Yuncheng, “If I ask you a question about personal relationships, will you feel offended?”

       Chen Yuncheng held the chopsticks in his hand, and replied, “You can just ask, I don’t need to answer if I feel offended.”

       Long Zhanyu nodded, “When did you find out that you like men?”

       Chen Yuncheng thought for a while and said, “When I met him.”

       Long Zhanyu continued to ask, “Then before you met him, did you watch movies of men or women?”

       Chen Yuncheng did not answer.

       Long Zhanyu finally said, “Sorry, I asked too many questions.”

Chapter 93

       Chen Yuncheng’s cooking skills were actually average, but no one was fussy at dinner tonight. They just ate food and drank wine, and then chat slowly.

       Guan Anlin mentioned the investment project that Yu Jie had told him about. He said that Yu Jie had obtained a piece of land in another province, and it was under the name of a famous local temple, and he wanted to build a columbarium1A columbarium is a structure for the reverential and usually public storage of funerary urns holding the cremains of the dead. tower.

       “You know how expensive cemeteries are nowadays. The columbarium tower claimed to have been consecrated by an eminent monk and enshrined with śarīra2Buddhism relics left after the cremation of Buddhas or saintly monks, so it costs a fortune just to deposit the ashes in it, and then you have to pay the incense money for the deposit every year. Ashes boxes and spirit tablets don’t take up much space, and the storage capacity of the eighteen-story tower is very valuable, and once it is built, it will definitely make a lot of money.”

       Chen Yuncheng frowned, he couldn’t help looking at Long Zhanyu. He saw Long Zhanyu leaning on the back of the chair and smoking, and he didn’t express anything when he heard what Guan Anlin said.

       “What does he want you to do?” Chen Yuncheng asked Guan Anlin.

       Guan Anlin picked up a piece of beef with chopsticks and ate it. After eating, he continued, “He said that it was inconvenient for the company to operate its scope of business now, and he wanted to register the company in my name and then cooperate with the local temple, and he would go through all those subsequent government approval procedures. I’ll be responsible for pulling in investments, and I’ll get my own percentage when I do. He also said he would take me on a site inspection if I was unsure and talk to the temple presidents.”

       Long Zhanyu sneered when he heard this.

       Chen Yuncheng heard Guan Anlin’s words very seriously, and couldn’t help asking, “Do you believe what he said?”

       Guan Anlin glanced at him, with a complaining expression on his face, “I’m not stupid. That old fvcking dog must be trying to get into something, and wait for me to take the blame for him.”

       Long Zhanyu reached out and pulled the ashtray on the table over, flicked the ash, and then said, “Yu Jie is clearly trying to screw you. What really lucrative project would he not earn himself, and to be so generous to you? And why not go to the bank loan, and ask you to pull investment there? Isn’t it a great idea? No, I think this is most likely illegal fundraising. That investment project of his must be fake, and illegal fundraising will last for more than half a year at most before it comes to light, and then you, the person in charge, will deserve to be arrested.”

       Guan Anlin clearly guessed what was going on, but he was still not satisfied hearing Long Zhanyu’s words, “Even if that’s the case, if I come out and identify Yu Jie, he won’t be able to get away, right?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Are you crazy? Why did you want to go down with him?”

       Guan Anlin waved his hand, “I’m just curious.”

       Long Zhanyu leaned on the back of the chair and said slowly, “It depends on whether Yu Jie has done a good job or not. There are many things that cannot be solely based only on your testimony and evidence. It depends on whether other evidence is sufficient to prove his criminal facts. And the two of you had a problem with each other, so he can use all this to his advantage.”

       Guan Anlin stared at the dining table in front of him and thought hard, “But I’ve already told you guys, can’t you testify for me?”

       Long Zhanyu had finished smoking a cigarette, put the cigarette butt in the ashtray, raised his arms and crossed his fingers behind his head, and looked at Guan Anlin with a puzzled expression, “On what basis? To prove that you knew that Yu Jie would engage in illegal fundraising, you helped him register a company to get him an investment to keep him going. Want to go to jail with him?”

       Chen Yuncheng suddenly felt that Guan Anlin was embarrassing himself, so he glared at him.

       Guan Anlin felt angry, and slammed his chopsticks on the table, “Is there nothing I can do about him? He must be doing other illegal things, you police should investigate quickly!” He turned to Long Zhanyu.

       Long Zhanyu said, “Investigation, huh? As long as there are clues, we will definitely investigate. Is there a clue right now? And we don’t necessarily have jurisdiction over his other crimes. I, a small policeman at the police station, can’t blindly investigate, you d1ckhead.”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help but hold Ning Junyan’s hand beside him. He didn’t mind Long Zhanyu and the others swearing in front of him, but he didn’t like them swearing in front of Ning Junyan.

       Ning Junyan just sat by and listened quietly, without saying anything, felt Chen Yuncheng hold his hand, lifted Chen Yuncheng’s hand and brought it to his lips for a kiss.

       Guan Anlin was about to say something, but when he saw this scene, he choked on his words and gave them a blank look.

       Ning Junyan noticed Guan Anlin’s gaze, but he obviously didn’t mind. He smiled lightly and said, “Without going as far as pulling in investment, wouldn’t the preliminary preparations have broken the law? For example, if he sets up a fake project, can he be charged with fraud?”

       Long Zhanyu looked as if he was thinking seriously. He raised his head, raised one leg, tapped his toes on the wooden leg of the dining table, and stopped after a while and said, “Actually, it’s not impossible.”

       Guan Anlin immediately looked at him.

       Long Zhanyu beckoned, asked him to put his ear close, and said a few words in a low voice.

       From Chen Yuncheng’s point of view, he couldn’t hear what they were talking about at all. After a while, Guan Anlin nodded with his brows stretched.

       “What exactly is it?” Chen Yuncheng asked.

       Guan Anlin looked at Long Zhanyu, “Can I say it?”

       Long Zhanyu said, “What? I didn’t say anything to you, you can say it yourself if you like.”

       Guan Anlin suddenly understood what he meant, nodded and said to Chen Yuncheng, “I’ll continue to pretend to work with Yu Jie, go register the company, and then ask him to show me the various materials for his Columbarium Tower project, of which government approval documents are definitely needed. Yu Jie’s projects are all fake, so the approval documents must also be fake. When the time comes, I will directly take the materials he gave to report him, or at least forged state documents—” He couldn’t recite the charges, and glanced at Long Zhanyu.

       Long Zhanyu continued, “—the crime of forging official documents and seals.”

       Chen Yuncheng finished listening, glanced at Ning Junyan, and said, “It sounds good.” However, he was always more worried, and asked again, “Will there be any danger?”

       Long Zhanyu looked very serious, “As a policeman, I would advise you to act within your means when you get to this point, nothing is as important as the safety of your life. If there’s trouble, run and inform the police quickly, don’t lose yourself for Yu Jie.”

       Guan Anlin couldn’t help asking after hearing the words, “What about advice as a non-police officer?”

       Long Zhanyu spread his hands, “If I’m not a policeman, I don’t think there is any danger, just don’t do unnecessary things.”

       Ning Junyan said at this time, “Dangers are sometimes unexpected.”

       Long Zhanyu was silent for a while, he looked up at the other party, and said, “You are right, so I am not a qualified policeman, and I can’t always stand in the most suitable position to think about things.” He looked a bit melancholy for some reason, and reached for the bottle on the table to pour himself a glass of wine, “I’d like to toast you all, there are many things that have been handled inconsiderately over the years and have caused a lot of trouble for Chen Yuncheng, so I’d like to solemnly apologise”

       Later, Long Zhanyu got drunk.

       There was no guest room at home, Chen Yuncheng originally wanted to call a taxi to take Long Zhanyu back, but he fell asleep and couldn’t wake up no matter what, Chen Yuncheng had to put him on the sofa in the living room.

       Guan Anlin also drank a lot, he said to Chen Yuncheng, “I’ll stay with you too.”

       Chen Yuncheng asked, “Where do you want to stay? On the floor?”

       Guan Anlin looked up and saw Ning Junyan standing by the bedroom door, looking at him coldly, so he said, “Forget it, I’d better go back and look at the store.”

       “You should have gone back to look at the shop from the start.” Chen Yuncheng brought him a coat and asked him to put it on, sent him downstairs, and call a taxi for him on the side of the road to watch him leave before turning back upstairs.


Long Zhanyu: I tried my best to look good, but readers still don’t like me

Aw, poor Zhanyu… To be fair, all he did was just things in his capacity as a policeman and not as a friend of Chen Yuncheng

Chapter 92

       In mid-September, Guan Anqin had already registered at the university.

       Chen Yuncheng asked Guan Anlin about Yu Jie several times, but Guan Anlin always couldn’t explain clearly, so he planned to call Long Zhanyu out and have a meal together. While he was at it, he wanted to find out some things clearly, otherwise, he would always be worried.

       At first, Chen Yuncheng planned to book a private room at a restaurant, but then he suddenly thought that eating at home was actually quite good, and he didn’t have to worry about bumping into Yu Jie or other acquaintances outside.

       After this idea came to him, he first sought Ning Junyan’s opinion, and when Ning Junyan agreed, he called Long Zhanyu and Guan Anlin to make an appointment.

       The day of the meal happened to be Long Zhanyu’s night shift off days. He went out in the afternoon and bought a bottle of red wine as a gift. Then he took a taxi to the elevator apartment that Chen Yuncheng rented according to the address.

       Long Zhanyu stood at the door and rang the doorbell, waited for more than ten seconds for the door to open from the inside, and saw a tall and straight figure.

       He had seen the man who opened the door. Although he hadn’t seen him many times, he had a deep impression of him and knew that he was Chen Yuncheng’s friend. It was just that he didn’t expect that there would be this person for dinner tonight, after all, the other person’s whole existence seemed out of place with them.

       Like now, Long Zhanyu was wearing a crumpled jacket over an old T-shirt, while the man in front of him was wearing a thin knitted sweater over a white shirt. The collar of the shirt was white and crisp, and the rolled-up cuffs were also clean.

       “Hello.” Although he felt strange, Long Zhanyu still took the initiative to extend a hand to greet him, “Long Zhanyu.”

       “Hello, Ning Junyan.” Ning Junyan held Long Zhanyu’s hand, gently shook it twice, and quickly released it.

       In fact, Ning Junyan was also very impressed with Long Zhanyu. After all, the young men and women who appeared around Chen Yuncheng were the ones he paid attention to.

       Long Zhanyu came into the entrance and saw Ning Junyan open the shoe cabinet to take out a pair of slippers and put them in front of him. Long Zhanyu thanked him, changed into the slippers and walked in, thinking that Ning Junyan seemed to have a good relationship with Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng was busy in the kitchen. He didn’t know how to cook at all, and only after he had invited the guests to his home in a flash of enthusiasm did he start to have a headache about what to do.

       Ning Junyan came into the kitchen, took the spatula from his hand, and said, “Your guest is here.”

       Chen Yuncheng asked, “Guan Anlin? Tell him to sit by himself.”

       Ning Junyan was much more proficient in his movements than he was. He turned down the fire and stir-fried a few times before serving on a plate. He said, “No, it’s the officer surnamed Long.”

       Only then did Chen Yuncheng hurry outside.

       Standing in the living room, Long Zhanyu looked at the whole house, saw Chen Yuncheng coming out of the kitchen wearing an apron, and said, “The house is pretty good.”

       Chen Yuncheng told him, “It’s rented.”

       Long Zhanyu handed him the red wine he brought, “It’s pretty good, and the environment is much better than where you used to live.”

       Chen Yuncheng took it over and said with a smile, “Thank you.” Then he said, “It looks quite well decorated, but the house is quite small, just one room.”

       He invited Long Zhanyu to sit down and poured another cup of tea.

       Long Zhanyu sat on the sofa and stretched his neck.

       Chen Yuncheng sat opposite him and asked, “Are you still busy with work?”

       Long Zhanyu said, “It’s just like that anyway, and you can’t be too busy.” After he said that, he heard a voice from the kitchen, and asked in a low voice, “Your friend is helping you cook?”

       Chen Yuncheng glanced back and said, “Yeah, he’s a better cook than me, in fact, I basically don’t know how to do it either. I follow the recipes on the Internet.”

       He had prepared four dishes and one soup today, including shrimp, steamed beef, as well as two stir-fried vegetables, and the soup was a chicken soup. He had been working all afternoon on these items.

       Ning Junyan brought the fried dishes to the table.

       Long Zhanyu looked in the direction of the restaurant, and asked Chen Yuncheng, “Is Guan Anlin here yet?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I’ll call him.”

       Guan Anlin arrived in less than ten minutes, but he didn’t bring any gifts with him. After he entered the room, he saw a table of dishes and expressed his surprise, “Cheng ge, you made this? Or not?”

       Chen Yuncheng greeted them to sit down, and stood by the table to drink liquor, “Why can’t I do it?”

       Guan Anlin said, “I’ve known you for so long, and I didn’t know you could cook.”

       “It’s very simple, you can learn it.” Chen Yuncheng opened the wine, and found that the wine glass was still in the kitchen. He then asked Ning Junyan to help him get the wine glass.

       Long Zhanyu glanced at Ning Junyan’s back, and said to Chen Yuncheng, “You don’t seem to have introduced this friend of yours properly.”

       When Chen Yuncheng heard Long Zhanyu’s words, he suddenly realized that he hadn’t told Long Zhanyu about his relationship with Ning Junyan, and suddenly felt a little embarrassed.

       Guan Anlin looked at Chen Yuncheng, then looked at Long Zhanyu, and said proactively, “He was just a friend he met when he was young, nothing special.” After he said that, he added, “They share the rent now.”

       “Rent sharing?” Long Zhanyu felt strange, “Isn’t there only one bedroom?”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t think there was anything to hide at first, he was just trying to figure out how to say it without making everyone feel awkward. However, he didn’t expect Guan Anlin to talk nonsense as soon as he opened his mouth, so now it was hard for him to explain. He couldn’t help but look up and give Guan Anlin a blank look.

       It happened that Ning Junyan came out with a wine glass, pulled out the chair and sat down and asked, “What bedroom?”

       Long Zhanyu said, “Guan Anlin said that you share the rent with Chen Yuncheng, I wonder how you live in one bedroom here.”

       Ning Junyan looked at Chen Yuncheng upon hearing the words, frowned and asked, “You said we rent together?”

       Chen Yuncheng hurriedly said, “I never said that.” Then he stared at Guan Anlin, “Who said we rent together?”

       Guan Anlin glanced in Long Zhanyu’s direction, raised his hand to cover his mouth, and mouthed to Chen Yuncheng, “I want to help you hide it.”

       Chen Yuncheng glanced fiercely at Guan Anlin, reached out to hold Ning Junyan’s hand and put it on the dining table, deliberately let Long Zhanyu see the ring on his finger, and said with a smile, “Let me introduce formally, my boyfriend.”

       Ning Junyan didn’t seem very satisfied with the title of boyfriend, when he wanted to speak, Chen Yuncheng kicked him from below, so he acquiesced.

       Long Zhanyu showed a confused expression for a moment, “Boyfriend?” His eyes darted repeatedly over Chen Yuncheng’s and Ning Junyan’s faces, and finally said, “fvck!” After he said that, he quickly said, “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it like that, it was just a bit thought-provoking and I couldn’t accept it for a while.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled at him, “It’s okay.” It didn’t matter if Long Zhanyu accepted him or not anyway.

       Long Zhanyu’s brain was a little confused for a short time. He took out a cigarette from the cigarette case and asked the people on the table before lighting it up, “Do you mind?”

       Chen Yuncheng shook his head.

       He then lit the cigarette, took a puff and thought that there was no lady on the table, he asked if anyone would mind, and then thought that it must be because he heard the word boyfriend just now, and for a moment he had a strange sense of gender confusion towards Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng poured wine for them with a bottle, “I purposely asked Anlin not to drive either, so we can all drink a little tonight.” When pouring wine for Ning Junyan, he said, “You drink less, you have to go to work tomorrow. “

       While smoking a cigarette, Long Zhanyu couldn’t help but look at Ning Junyan.

       Chen Yuncheng raised his head and said to Long Zhanyu, “He is a doctor, have I introduced him?”

       Long Zhanyu shook his head, then said, “Good job.”

       Chen Yuncheng poured the wine, raised the glass first, and said, “It’s a rare opportunity, and it’s the first time I’ve invited a guest at home,” As he said this, he felt an inexplicable sense of happiness, and couldn’t help turning his head to look at Ning Junyan, and then continued, “Let’s have a drink first.”

Chapter 91

       After dinner, Guan Anlin saw that it was almost time, and planned to take Guan Anqin back to pack his things.

       They took the elevator downstairs, and Guan Anqin stood behind Guan Anlin. When the elevator reached the parking lot on the ground floor, Guan Anqin saw Ning Junyan put his palm on Chen Yuncheng’s back when he got out of the elevator.

       Ning Junyan’s car was not in the same area as the BMW that Guan Anlin and the others drove. After Guan Anlin found the car, Chen Yuncheng and Ning Junyan left together.

       Guan Anlin looked for the car keys in his pocket.

       No one knew what Guan Anqin was thinking either, she subconsciously glanced in the direction where Ning Junyan and Chen Yuncheng left, and happened to see Ning Junyan lowered his head and kissed Chen Yuncheng’s lips, then Chen Yuncheng looked at Ning Junyan and him with a smile on his face said something.

       When she saw this scene, Guan Anqin instantly showed a surprised expression. She blushed and reached out to pull Guan Anlin’s sleeve, “Ge, ge!”

       Guan Anlin found the keys in the inner pocket, just unlocked the car, and asked her, “What?”

       Guan Anqin was a little embarrassed to say so, so she poked her head out to take a look again, this time she could only see the backs of Ning Junyan and Chen Yuncheng from a distance, she approached Guan Anlin and whispered, “I saw them kissing just now.”

       Guan Anlin was stunned for a moment, and asked, “Who?”

       Guan Anqin pointed to the direction where Ning Junyan and Chen Yuncheng left, but still couldn’t hide her surprise, “Are they in that kind of relationship?”

       Guan Anlin didn’t answer. He just realized what Guan Anqin meant, and suddenly felt angry. He clenched his fist and knocked on the roof of the car, cursing, “Shameless!”

       Chen Yuncheng received a message from Guan Anlin after taking a shower at night, telling him to restrain himself and not have intimate behaviours with men in public. Chen Yuncheng ignored it, looked at it and threw the phone aside.

       After a while, Guan Anlin sent another message, “You are going to muddle my sister!”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help but reply to him, “Nuts!”

       But from that day on, whenever Chen Yuncheng went to the store and met Guan Anqin, the little girl would secretly look at him, and once she noticed his gaze, she would blush and secretly turn away.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t know what was going on in the head of this little girl who had just started university.

       Guan Anlin took the day off and drove Guan Anqin around the city in his car during the day.

       Chen Yuncheng got busy and stayed in the store to help out most of the time, and the sales of the Baijiu brand he represented were getting better and better in the local area recently, and he also had a lower-level agent. He wanted to rent another shop in the market to run his own brand so that he could separate his business from that of Sun Shiliang.

       Actually, he had been thinking of registering the company, but he had no prior experience and didn’t know anything about it, so he kept looking for advice when he had time.

       Perhaps because he was too busy and didn’t pay much attention to the change of season, Chen Yuncheng caught a little cold.

       He didn’t have time to eat lunch at noon that day, so he asked Wu Xiaozhu to leave him a boxed lunch. After he finished his work in the afternoon, he squatted at the door of the shop, opened the lid of the boxed lunch, and after two bites of the cold and greasy boxed lunch, he started to feel sick.

       It just so happened that Guan Anlin came back with his sister from outside in his car. He just parked the car in front of the store, opened the door and got out of the car. He saw Chen Yuncheng patting his chest and vomiting, and asked, “Are you pregnant?”

       Chen Yuncheng raised his head and glared at him.

       Guan Anqin got out of the car and blushed slightly when she heard what Guan Anlin said.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t want to eat, so he asked Shi Peng, who was idle in the store in the afternoon, to help him throw it away, took out a tissue to wipe his mouth, and asked Guan Anlin, “Why are you back so early?”

       Guan Anlin went to the shop to get a bottle of cola and handed it to Guan Anqin first, but Guan Anqin shook her head and didn’t take it, so he unscrewed the drink himself and said while drinking, “That scenic spot is not interesting, it’s all a scam, so I came back early.” After he finished speaking, he looked at Chen Yuncheng and said, “Yu Jie invited me to dinner tonight.”

       “He wants to meet you to introduce him to that investment?” Chen Yuncheng frowned.

       Guan Anlin nodded, took out a cigarette from his pocket, and handed one to Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng took it, and asked Guan Anlin to light the cigarette for him with a lighter, put the cigarette between his fingers, and said, “Last time I heard you say that I thought he noticed something, but now it doesn’t look like it.”

       “We’ll know if we go and take a look.”

       Chen Yuncheng was a little worried, “Be careful, if there is a problem, just forget it.”

       The hostility in Guan Anlin’s eyes was faintly visible, “I’m just not willing to let it go. Originally, I wanted to forget about that matter, but he took the initiative to provoke me. It would be too bad not to be able to clean him up this time.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “We’re not police officers, what else can we do if we know he’s doing these things besides reporting to the police?”

       Guan Anlin thought for a while, and suddenly approached Chen Yuncheng curiously, and asked in a low voice, “You said last time that Yu Jie had a daughter, and before that Ning Junyan’s mother even asked her to go on a blind date with Ning Junyan?”

       Chen Yuncheng moved the cigarette between his fingers to prevent the falling ash from burning Guan Anlin, and looked at him, “So?”

       Guan Anlin said, “Why don’t I go and seduce his daughter, so I can get back at him!”

       Chen Yuncheng slapped him on the head, “Where did you get your confidence?”

       Guan Anlin said, unconvinced, “Why can’t I do it? She can fall in love with Ning Junyan, why can’t she fall in love with me?”

       Chen Yuncheng got a little annoyed when he heard that, “When someone comes back from studying abroad, they would see things other than the other appearance. What about your education and jobs that make people consider you?.”

       Guan Anlin’s voice became louder, “That Ning Junyan still has a crush on you, how amazing is it?”

       Guan Anqin was chatting with Wu Xiaozhu next to the counter, but when she heard Guan Anlin’s voice, she looked outside curiously.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t want to continue talking to him, so he grabbed his collar and said to him, “What do you care what Ning Junyan sees in me? Anyway, it’s not like Yu Jie’s business has anything to do with his daughter, so don’t get crooked ideas!” When he said this, he remembered what Ning Junyan had said the other day about Yu Jie’s concerns and couldn’t help but say, “This one or that one, neither one of them is a good idea!”

       Guan Anlin said softly, “Just kidding, why are you angry?”

       In the afternoon, Ning Junyan drove to the trade market to pick up Chen Yuncheng.

       During this period of time, it had become a habit for them to pick up Chen Yuncheng after work. As long as Ning Junyan did not work the night shift or overtime, he would drive to pick Chen Yuncheng back for dinner after getting off work.

       Guan Anlin was not very happy when he thought of Chen Yuncheng saying that he was not as good as Ning Junyan, so when he saw Ning Junyan, he said to him, “Your wife is pregnant.”

       Ning Junyan looked at him indifferently.

       Guan Anlin said, “He was lying there throwing up this afternoon..”

       Ning Junyan turned his gaze to Chen Yuncheng who came out of the store, followed him all the time, and said calmly to Guan Anlin, “Is that so?”

       When Chen Yuncheng got into the car, Ning Junyan suddenly asked Chen Yuncheng when he was about to drive the car out of the trade market, “Guan Anlin said you are pregnant?”

       Chen Yuncheng felt an itchy throat because of a cold and couldn’t help but want to cough twice, but coughed uncontrollably for more than ten seconds, and even Ning Junyan reached out and patted his back before he smoothed out and said, “He’s crazy!”

       Ning Junyan said again, “He said you threw up in the afternoon.”

       “I didn’t throw up!” Chen Yuncheng said angrily, “I just have a cold, and my stomach feels uncomfortable in the afternoon.”

       When he heard this, Ning Junyan raised his hand and touched his forehead.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I don’t have a fever, it’s just a small cold, not serious.”

       Even though he said so, Ning Junyan still parked his car in front of the pharmacy on the roadside on the way back and got out to buy cold medicine for Chen Yuncheng. He didn’t eat dinner outside either, Ning Junyan packed the food in the restaurant downstairs, and then he had to go back to make porridge for Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng thought Ning Junyan’s nervous look was a bit funny. When Ning Junyan was cooking porridge in the kitchen, he hugged Ning Junyan’s waist from behind and asked him, “It’s just a small cold. What kind of major illness has Dr. Ning never seen, he didn’t even shake his hand when he operated on his own father, why is he so nervous?”

       Ning Junyan stared at the fire intently and said, “You are not allowed to get sick, not even a cold.”

       Chen Yuncheng rubbed his shoulders, “It’s not a matter of whether I’m allowed or not, either.”

       Ning Junyan stirred the pot lightly with a spoon, “Get well soon after taking the medicine.”

       After dinner, Ning Junyan watched Chen Yuncheng take the medicine. The two of them did not go into the bedroom, but turned on the TV and lay down on the sofa.

       There was a ball game tonight.

       Chen Yuncheng used to like to watch TV when he was running his own small shop, and he would also catch up with football games, but later he seldom watched it when he got busy with work. And he knew that Ning Junyan didn’t like watching TV. After they lived together, they seldom even turned on the TV.

       It was not just that Ning Junyan didn’t like watching TV, but Ning Junyan also didn’t have any hobbies. If he got nothing to do at home, he usually read professional books or read documents on the computer. It was not a hobby, it was just a work requirement.

       Chen Yuncheng suspected that if Ning Junyan had to fill in the form with his interest, he might fill in the word Chen Yuncheng.

       Just like now, when they turned off the light in the living room, Ning Junyan sat on the sofa and stubbornly held Chen Yuncheng in his arms from behind, watching the game with him.

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help but turn around, saw the light from the TV screen flickering on Ning Junyan’s handsome face, and asked him, “Is it good?”

       Ning Junyan also answered him very seriously, “Both sides are too on guard, this game was very boring.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled, “If you don’t want to watch, go do something else, you don’t have to watch it with me.”

       Ning Junyan lowered his head, looked at him for a moment, and asked, “Go and do what?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Anything is fine, whatever you want.”

       Ning Junyan thought for a while and moved closer to Chen Yuncheng’s lips, which he planned to kiss.

       Chen Yuncheng hurriedly moved aside and said, “I still have a cold. I don’t want to infect you.”

       Ning Junyan suddenly became unhappy, “Isn’t it okay to do anything?”

       Chen Yuncheng almost figured out his train of thought, and immediately said, “It doesn’t include fvcking me!”

       With a cold face, Ning Junyan turned his gaze back to the TV, “Then let’s continue watching the football game.”

Chapter 90

       In the evening, when Chen Yuncheng called Long Zhanyu, Long Zhanyu told him that he was busy and would call him back later.

       In the end, when Long Zhanyu finished his work and called Chen Yuncheng back, it was already past ten o’clock.

       Now this house was very small and there was no study room, so Ning Junyan sometimes reads at the dining table. If Chen Yuncheng was at home, he used to sit on the bed and read.

       When Chen Yuncheng’s phone rang, Ning Junyan turned his head to look at the caller ID and then looked up at Chen Yuncheng.

       At that moment, Chen Yuncheng hesitated for a short while on whether to go out to answer the phone, but after noticing Ning Junyan’s eyes, he still chose to lie on the bed and answer Long Zhanyu’s call.

       Long Zhanyu’s voice was exhausted as always, “What’s the matter?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “It’s about Guan Anlin.”

       Long Zhanyu seemed to think about it for a while, and said, “Oh, you said that Guan Anlin called the police earlier.”

       Ning Junyan’s specialised field books were spread out on his knees, he turned his head sideways and looked intently at Chen Yuncheng’s face.

       Chen Yuncheng felt uncomfortable being looked at by him, so he simply leaned over and put his head on Ning Junyan’s shoulder, looked at him flatteringly, and continued to say to Long Zhanyu, “Can you guarantee his safety? You asked him to be your informant, right?”

       “Listen to me,” Long Zhanyu said in a noisy background, and he could hear men arguing loudly. He seemed to have changed places, and the surroundings became quiet after a while, before he said, “He mentioned I checked the company registered by Yu Jie. It is a formally registered company. Now it only has a business scope and no specific business. Then he said that Yu Jie is going to start an investment project. I also checked, but I can’t find any relevant information so far Yu Jie may have told Guan Anlin about this matter alone.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt that Ning Junyan raised his hand to wrap around his shoulders, he kissed Ning Junyan’s chin, and asked Long Zhanyu, “If you can’t find evidence, you can’t touch Yu Jie for the time being, right?”

       “That’s for sure. I didn’t want Guan Anlin to take risks, but I don’t even have a clue what was going on. What kind of project does Yu Jie have? Is he going to engage in pyramid schemes? Illegal fundraising? Or is he simply targeting Guan Anlin, scamming him out of his money just for the sake of it? If Guan Anlin withdraws at this time, it is very likely that nothing will be found in the end, do you understand?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I understand, but can you guarantee Guan Anlin’s safety?”

       Long Zhanyu was quiet for a moment, “I have an idea. Didn’t Yu Jie ask Guan Anlin to pull in investment? I’ll find someone here to pretend to be taken advantage of and invest in him. If Yu Jie isn’t going after Guan Anlin alone, and he wants to start any investment project, whether it’s a pyramid scheme or illegal fundraising, we can arrest him once we find evidence.”

       “You must not trick him.”

       Long Zhanyu’s tone was a little helpless, “How could I trick him? I told him to contact me at any time, and I have his mobile phone location here. We have known each other for so long. To be honest with you, at present, with the evidence of Guan Anlin’s reporting to the police, I can’t touch Yu Jie. Guan Anlin and Yu Jie had something going on before, you know it in your heart.”

       As he said this, someone on Long Zhanyu’s side was calling him loudly, he covered the microphone and replied “Right away”, Chen Yuncheng still heard it.

       Long Zhanyu said, “Let’s talk slowly next time.” After he said that, he hung up the phone in a hurry.

       Chen Yuncheng stared at the phone for a while, then raised his eyes to Ning Junyan.

       Ning Junyan asked him, “What? Yu Jie came to trouble you guys again?”

       The two of them were too close, and Ning Junyan could hear almost everything Long Zhanyu said on the phone.

       Chen Yuncheng sighed, and threw the phone aside, “I don’t know what Yu Jie want, he must have no good intentions, but I don’t know if he is after Guan Anlin, or if he is after me at all.”

       Ning Junyan’s eyes sank. He kissed Chen Yuncheng’s forehead, and asked him, “Why? Because of my mother’s incident?”

       Chen Yuncheng heard that his tone was not very good, looked at him and said, “No, I’m just guessing, don’t you go looking for trouble with Yu Jie.”

       Ning Junyan pressed his lips against Chen Yuncheng’s forehead and did not leave, and said gloomily, “As long as he doesn’t mess with you.”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help sitting up and looked at his expression carefully, “What do you want?” After he finished speaking, Chen Yuncheng added nervously, “Anyway, the police have already been called, if he does something illegal just leave it to the police, we can’t do anything to him.”

       Ning Junyan said in a flat tone, “It is actually easy to deal with this kind of person. After all, he is not a desperado. He has a family, a family and a career. He thought he could control Guan Anlin, but in fact, Guan Anlin didn’t need to be afraid of him at all. Whoever has more entanglements will have more burdened.”

       “Don’t scare me, don’t talk nonsense,” Chen Yuncheng was very disturbed, and he moved closer to Ning Junyan, “Guan Anlin has a one-track mind, you are not allowed to instigate him to do anything, just leave it to the police. And who says Guan Anlin has no worries? His sister is coming to college soon.”

       Ning Junyan looked at him, suddenly smiled, and said, “It was just a joke, don’t be nervous, I won’t do anything.” Then he hugged Chen Yuncheng and kissed him on the cheek hard.

       Soon the summer was coming to an end, and when September came, Guan Anlin’s most important bond took the high-speed train from his hometown to go to college alone with her suitcase.

       That afternoon, Guan Anlin asked Chen Yuncheng to drive with him to the high-speed rail station to pick up his sister.

       Guan Anlin’s younger sister was named Guan Anqin. She was a rural girl who graduated from a high school in the county town after taking the college entrance examination.

       They picked up Guan Anqin outside the station and planned to take her back to the shop first and then have dinner with her in the evening.

       When Guan Anlin found a chance to be alone with Chen Yuncheng, he asked him, “Is my sister beautiful?”

       Chen Yuncheng responded with a “hmm”, “beautiful.”

       Guan Anlin smiled, “It’s too late for you to regret.”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t bother to talk to him.

       The dinner was arranged in the downtown business district, mainly because Guan Anlin wanted to show Guan Anqin around, and knowing that his sister was shy, he didn’t call anyone else, only Chen Yuncheng and the three of them had dinner together.

       Chen Yuncheng had an easygoing personality, and he quickly got acquainted with Guan Anqin. He told her that Guan Anlin could accompany her to visit the scenic spots when he was free these few days, and he could take care of the shop.

       Guan Anqin didn’t know how to answer, so she blushed slightly and smiled.

       Halfway through the meal, Chen Yuncheng answered the phone, and after hanging up, he told Guan Anlin, “Ning Junyan is coming.”

       Guan Anlin was immediately unhappy, “What is he doing here?”

       Chen Yuncheng replied, “To come and pick me up. You can drive xiao Qin back to the store later, so you can rest early.”

       The time for school registration hadn’t arrived yet, so Guan Anqin came a few days earlier. Originally, Chen Yuncheng suggested booking a hotel for her at first, but later felt that it was not safe for her to stay in a hotel alone as a girl. Anyway, the store has bunk beds, so staying with her brother for a few days was not a big problem.

       Guan Anlin had deliberately left the bottom bunk for his sister and replaced it with clean bed sheets and bedding.

       Less than 20 minutes after Chen Yuncheng answered the phone, Ning Junyan appeared in the restaurant.

       Although it was early autumn, the temperature had not dropped yet. Ning Junyan was wearing a loose short-sleeved T-shirt and long jeans and walked towards them with a coat hanging on his arm.

       The three of them sat in booths, with Chen Yuncheng’s back facing the direction Ning Junyan came in, but Guan Anqin, who was sitting opposite him, was the first to notice Ning Junyan. She stole a glance, just thinking that the man coming towards her was good-looking and distinguished, something she had rarely seen in the past, but she was too embarrassed to look more than that and quickly turned her eyes away.

       Ning Junyan walked to Chen Yuncheng’s side, raised his hand and pressed it on the back of his neck naturally.

       Only then did Chen Yuncheng realise that he was there, and quickly moved a seat inside for him to sit down.

       “Have you eaten yet?” Chen Yuncheng asked him.

       Ning Junyan shook his head, “Not yet.”

       Chen Yuncheng hurriedly beckoned the waiter to take the menu and asked Ning Junyan to add dishes.

       When Guan Anlin introduced Ning Junyan to his younger sister, he only said that he was Chen Yuncheng’s friend. Guan Anqin didn’t know what kind of friend he was, and couldn’t help but peek at them.

       Ning Junyan opened the menu, lowered his head and casually flipped through a few pages, then suddenly raised his head to look at Guan Anlin, and asked, “Has Yu Jie contacted you recently?”

       Guan Anlin was stunned for a moment before he realized, “No.” He followed Long Zhanyu’s instructions and introduced an investor to Yu Jie, but Yu Jie kept saying that he was too busy and hadn’t formally met with him yet.

       Chen Yuncheng kicked Ning Junyan under the table.

       Ning Junyan looked at him, and Chen Yuncheng leaned closer to Ning Junyan’s ear, “Anlin’s sister is here, don’t say such things.”

       “Okay,” Ning Junyan replied softly and then beckoned the waiter to order.

       Guan Anqin picked up her glass of water and silently took a sip of water, curiously looking at the two people across the table.

       It wasn’t until Ning Junyan handed the menu back to the waiter and his eyes fell on her face that she hastily lowered her head.

Chapter 89

       Ning Junyan brought the bank card that Shu Rong did not accept, but Ning Junyan did not take it away when he left. He left the card on the coffee table, and he believed that Shu Rong would eventually accept it.

       Before he left, he said to Shu Rong, “Actually, I have something to tell you.”

       “What else do you want to say?” Shu Rong calmed down at this moment.

       Ning Junyan said, “I think we need not be like this, many things are impossible to change. Why can’t everyone live a happier life?”

       Shu Rong looked at him and said nothing.

       Ning Junyan continued, “If anger doesn’t solve anything, I think we can try to accept it and at least make ourselves feel better inside.” After he said this, he didn’t stay at home any longer and said goodbye to his parents and left.

       He drove back to his and Chen Yuncheng’s rented house, and when Ning Junyan entered the house, he saw that there were no lights on in the living room, so he dropped his car keys on top of the shoe cabinet and walked towards the lighted bedroom.

       Chen Yuncheng was standing in front of the wardrobe, opened the door of the wardrobe, and used a screwdriver to unscrew the door. When he heard Ning Junyan’s footsteps, he looked back and said, “One of the screws on the closet door fell off. I found one to put back on today.”

       When Chen Yuncheng opened the door, he noticed that the wardrobe door was a bit loose, and after looking at it carefully in the morning, he found that one of the screws on the wardrobe door had fallen out, and he didn’t know where it had gone, so he had to take another one and go out to find another one of the same sizes. Anyway, Chen Yuncheng brought back all the tools, so Chen Yuncheng simply tightened all the screws on the wardrobe door at night, and now there were only the last two left.

       The decoration of this house looks good, but when you moved in, you would find many small problems with the details. Chen Yuncheng himself didn’t mind, but he just couldn’t bear to put Ning Junyan through the wringer.

       Ning Junyan walked behind him and stopped. He stood by without speaking.

       Chen Yuncheng only tilted his head, and asked him, “What’s the matter? I’ll be over soon, you go take a bath first.”

       Ning Junyan did not leave, the tall figure almost covered all the light in front of him and the screwdriver in Chen Yuncheng’s hand slipped away. The light was blocked and he couldn’t see clearly, so he could only reach out and feel for it, as he did so, he asked, “Did you have a fight with your parents?” He knew that Ning Junyan had gone back tonight, but he didn’t know the result of his conversation with his parents.

       Ning Junyan answered him, “No.” Then he reached out and hugged Chen Yuncheng’s waist from behind, leaning his face on the top of his head.

       Chen Yuncheng felt strange, “Drinking?” He turned his head to smell Ning Junyan’s breath, “Not drunk.”

       Ning Junyan’s voice was dull as he said, “No, I haven’t been drinking.”

       There was one last screw left on the closet door, under the door, Chen Yuncheng had to bend down, but Ning Junyan was holding behind him, and when he bent down, Ning Junyan’s whole body was pressed against his back, Chen Yuncheng said, “Let go of me, I can’t do anything like this!”

       Ning Junyan was not willing to let him go at all. Instead, he put his whole body weight on Chen Yuncheng’s back, dragging his waist down. Chen Yuncheng grabbed the wardrobe door with one hand but was dragged to the ground by Ning Junyan alone. He helplessly said, “You made me unscrew the last screw!” He felt uncomfortable if he didn’t tighten it.

       Delicate and soft kisses fell on Chen Yuncheng’s side face and ears continuously. Ning Junyan sat behind Chen Yuncheng with two long legs apart, with one arm around his waist, and the other turned his face towards him while kissing. He said at the same time, “Screw it.”

       Screw my ass! Chen Yuncheng was still holding a screwdriver in his hand, but he couldn’t reach the screws on the wardrobe door at all.

       Ning Junyan loosened his waist, groped for his hand, took the screwdriver from his hand and threw it aside, then interlocked his fingers.

       Chen Yuncheng’s cheeks and ears turned red from the kiss, and he quickly lost his temper. He raised his eyes and looked at the closed wardrobe door, thinking that he should continue to tighten that screw tomorrow morning.

       At this time, Ning Junyan took his hand and brought it to his lips for a kiss.

       Chen Yuncheng wore the engagement ring that Ning Junyan put on for him on his ring finger, and said embarrassedly, “Don’t kiss it, I haven’t washed my hands yet.”

       Ning Junyan asked him, “Have you taken a shower?”

       Chen Yuncheng was repairing the closet as soon as he came back, and he didn’t have time to take a shower. When he heard Ning Junyan’s question, he shook his head, “Not yet.”

       Ning Junyan said, “I’ll carry you to shower.”

       Although the more intimate things have been done, Chen Yuncheng still felt ashamed of the request to be taken to shower, and he quickly refused, “No, I’ll go by myself.”

       Ning Junyan didn’t seem to hear it, and directly picked up Chen Yuncheng from the ground, and walked towards the bathroom, “Let’s go and take a shower.”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help laughing, “Ning Junyan, what’s wrong with you today?”

       There might be something wrong with Ning Junyan today, he was very clingy to Chen Yuncheng and insisted on taking a shower with him in the narrow shower room.

       After they showered and returned to the bed, Ning Junyan hugged Chen Yuncheng face to face and kept kissing him over and over again.

       Chen Yuncheng stroked his hair, feeling that he didn’t look unhappy, and asked softly, “Can you tell me what you’re thinking about?”

       Ning Junyan looked at him intently and said, “You can’t leave me.”

       Chen Yuncheng laughed when he heard the words, “I didn’t say I would leave you.” After he said that, he thought for a while and added, “Do you want me to make a vow?”

       Ning Junyan said calmly, “No, I want my wife to kiss me.”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t know whether to laugh or cry for a moment and replied, “Okay.” Then he added a sentence embarrassingly, “Let’s kiss.”

       About a week later, one afternoon, Chen Yuncheng drove out and made an appointment with a small agent to discuss business in a teahouse.

       The two drank tea and chatted, and left the teahouse around four o’clock in the afternoon. Chen Yuncheng went to the parking lot in front of the teahouse to pick up his car. Just as he got in the car, he saw Guan Anlin coming out from the gate of another teahouse next door.

       Chen Yuncheng frowned and started the car to drive directly to Guan Anlin’s side, but then he saw Yu Jie also come out of the teahouse, walked behind Guan Anlin and tapped him on the shoulder.

       Guan Anlin turned around and said something to Yu Jie.

       Yu Jie smiled and patted him on the shoulder again, turned and left.

       Chen Yuncheng sat in the car and watched them, saw Yu Jie walking to the parking lot to drive, and waited until Yu Jie’s car left the parking lot. He took a deep breath, drove the car in front of Guan Anlin, pressed down the window, and said to Guan Anlin, “Get in.”

       Guan Anlin lowered his head and was fiddling with his mobile phone, maybe he was about to take a taxi when he suddenly heard Chen Yuncheng’s voice. He raised his head with a surprised expression, glanced at Chen Yuncheng, then looked nervously in the direction Yu Jie left, and then went around to the passenger side and pulled the door open to get in.

       “Why are you here?” Before he got into the car, Guan Anlin threw away the cigarette butt in his hand.

       As Chen Yuncheng drove towards the exit of the parking lot, he said, “Shouldn’t I ask you this, why are you here?”

       Guan Anlin pushed down the window a little, and suddenly realized that the air conditioner was on in the car, closed the window again, and said, “Did you see Yu Jie?”

       “Last time it was old fvcking dog, now it’s Yu Jie?”

       Guan Anlin quickly said, “It’s still old fvcking dog even now.”

       Chen Yuncheng was a little angry, “Are you out of your mind? Why do you still want to hang out with him?”

       Guan Anlin said, “Don’t worry, I know Yu Jie is not a good guy, and he has no good intentions. I’m not stupid, okay?”

       Chen Yuncheng glared at him.

       Guan Anlin patted his arm reassuringly, “Just focus on driving, and I’ll tell you later.”

       After he met Yu Jie in the hospital last time, Guan Anlin met Yu Jie by chance. At that time, Yu Jie took the initiative to apologize to Guan Anlin, insisting that what happened back then was a misunderstanding and he did not intend to harm Guan Anlin, but when the police came to his door, he didn’t dare to come forward, thus causing Guan Anlin to spend two years in jail.

       “I haven’t read much, but I’m not stupid. Who the fvck would fall on the same person twice?” Guan Anlin and Chen Yuncheng stayed in the small room inside the store, closed the door and talked in a low voice.

       Chen Yuncheng sat by the bed with a rare calm expression.

       Guan Anlin said, “I thought he must have some kind of purpose to get close to me. I’ve done him a favour by not seeking revenge for what happened in the first place, and he still came to me on his own initiative. What do you think he’s after?” He also sat on the edge of the bed and lifted an arm to rest on Chen Yuncheng’s shoulder.

       Chen Yuncheng glanced at him.

       Guan Anlin then continued, “I then thought that he wanted to take revenge on you for stirring up his business with that evil mother-in-law of yours.”

       “How will he get revenge?”

       “He told me that he started a company and was working on an investment project. He introduced a lot of project content to me and said he would take me on the on-spot-investigation, but he needed me to attract investment.”

       Chen Yuncheng sighed, “Does he think you are stupid?”

       Guan Anlin’s expression became a little fierce, “Didn’t he think I was stupid? He probably thinks I’m no different from back then.”

       Chen Yuncheng asked him, “Then what happened?”

       Guan Anlin said, “Then I simply gave information to that policeman you are familiar with, the one with a face younger than a woman. A call to the police.”

       “Long Zhanyu?”

       Guan Anlin snapped his fingers, “It’s him.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “You shouldn’t say that about him to his face.”

       Guan Anlin snorted.

       Chen Yuncheng asked, “What did he say?”

       Guan Anlin said, “He told me to continue to contact Yu Jie to see if this project of Yu Jie’s was real or fake; if anyone had invested in it, and if I could find a list of investors.”

       Chen Yuncheng was suddenly very disturbed, “He asked you to be his informant?”

       Guan Anlin nodded.

       Chen Yuncheng stood up from the bed and took two steps back and forth, “I’ll call Long Zhanyu later.”

Chapter 88

       Ning Junyan decided to act first and say something later. After he sold the house, he went back to find Shu Rong with the money. He sat on the sofa in the living room, pushed the bank card on the coffee table in front of Shu Rong, and said, “I sold the house, take this money and use it first.”

       Shu Rong was sitting opposite Ning Junyan, originally looking at the bank card on the table, when she heard the words she jerked her head up, “You sold the house?”

       Ning Zhanghong was sitting next to Shu Rong, with a surprised expression on his face, “Why did you sell the house?”

       Now Shu Rong’s financial situation was difficult to turn around for a while, but neither of them thought that things had reached the point where they needed their son to sell the house, it was just a matter of putting in more effort to raise the money.

       Ning Junyan replied calmly, “Originally, you guys bought the house for me. Since Mom needs money now, I will return the money to you first.”

       Shu Rong’s emotions flared up because of his words, “What do you mean? Are you trying to separate yourself from us?”

       Ning Junyan was still very calm, “Of course not. You raised me from a young age, and what I owe you can’t be repaid with a house. I have no intention of cutting ties with you.”

       Perhaps because of anger, Shu Rong’s eyes and cheeks were flushed red as she glared hard at Ning Junyan, “Then what do you mean?”

       Ning Junyan said, “It’s nothing. It’s just that you need money to turn around, and this house is not necessary for me now, so I sold it.”

       “It’s not necessary?” Shu Rong asked, “Then where do you live now?”

       Ning Junyan answered her, “I live with Yuncheng.”

       The redness from anger on Shu Rong’s face disappeared in an instant, and she turned slightly pale, and asked Ning Junyan, “You did that on purpose, didn’t you? You just came to show off to me!”

       Ning Junyan looked at her and said slowly, “It’s really not like that. It’s just that I don’t have a house to live in now, but he does, so I’m just staying at his place. It’s no different from when he used to stay with me before.”

       Shu Rong didn’t speak.

       Ning Junyan then continued, “I don’t understand your prejudice against Chen Yuncheng, I just want to tell you that he is not unworthy of your son. He is smart, kind, responsible, has a career and can make money, he has no parents and is not highly educated, but he is better than most people, and none of us have the right to look down on him.”

       At this time, Ning Zhanghong couldn’t help but said softly, “It’s not that we look down on him, it’s just that you are both men. Have you really considered how to live together?”

       Ning Junyan looked at his father, “I was almost killed by human traffickers when I was young, do you still remember? If it wasn’t for Chen Yuncheng, I wouldn’t have survived at all.”

       At that time, Ning Junyan, who was fourteen years old, gradually recovered his memory. He was getting taller and stronger, and his personality was so strong and withdrawn that his foster father felt that he was becoming more and more difficult to deal with and was tempted to kill him.

       That night, the foster father brought back a big box of milk and gave it to Chen Yuncheng.

       Unaware that the milk contained sleeping pills, Chen Yuncheng shared the milk with Ning Junyan and Zhou Yan, and when he saw Zhou Yan was wanting more, he gave him a glass of his own.

       In the middle of the night, the foster father came into their room, took Ning Junyan, who had drank the medicine, dragged him out of bed, wrapped him in a sack, and put him on a tricycle.

       Chen Yuncheng was still young at that time and was sleeping soundly at night. He suddenly woke up when his foster father opened the yard door with an ear-piercing creaking sound and noticed that Ning Junyan was gone. So he got up and quietly went to the door, just as he saw his foster father riding out on a tricycle with a sack in the back as if it was filled with a person.

       Chen Yuncheng put on his tattered sneakers and chased after him in horror. He didn’t dare to get close and was afraid that he would lose him if he went too far. He kept chasing after his foster father carefully until his foster father stopped the car, dragged the sack off and headed for the barren hills.

       The foster father found a messy bamboo forest, threw the sack on the ground, and then went back to get the shovel on the tricycle. He planned to knock Ning Junyan to death with the shovel first, and then dig a hole to bury the sack directly.

       When he walked up to Ning Junyan and raised the shovel high, someone rushed from behind and grabbed the shovel in his hand tightly.

       Twelve-year-old Chen Yuncheng was still very thin because of poor nutrition and had not grown quite yet. He was not as strong as his foster father, but he tried his best to grab the shovel, and finally, the two of them fell to the ground.

       By the moonlight that filtered through the forest, the foster father saw his face clearly, and called a name with a ferocious expression, “Chen Yuncheng!”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t speak and tried hard to grab the shovel, and finally, the wooden handle of the shovel hit the foster father’s head, who let go and Chen Yuncheng snatched it away from him.

       He stood up and backed away with the shovel in his arms.

       The foster father quickly got up, looking like a demon in a nightmare in the bamboo forest, hunched over and approached Chen Yuncheng step by step, stretched out a hand covered in mud, “Be obedient, give the shovel to Dad.”

       Chen Yuncheng shook his head.

       The foster father soon became impatient and rushed towards Chen Yuncheng to grab the shovel in his hand.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t know where the courage came from; he raised the shovel and knocked on the foster father’s head, knocking him down in the mud all at once. He clenched the shovel tightly and did not dare to let it go. When he saw that his godfather was lying on the ground moaning, not losing consciousness, and his feet were moving, he raised the shovel again, but he still couldn’t bear to knock it down. Finally, he walked to Ning Junyan with the shovel in his arms, untied the sack and tried to wake him up.

       The dosage of sleeping pills seemed to be heavy. Ning Junyan was drowsy and never fully woke up.

       Chen Yuncheng had no choice but to carry him on his back and walked outside with difficulty.

       They were very familiar with this area, and Chen Yuncheng was afraid that his foster father would get up and chase them, so he didn’t dare to go back the same way, but took a detour around the hills and went to the nearest street.

       Ning Junyan was tall, but fortunately, he was thin because he didn’t eat well like him. However, he still weighed heavily on his back, and every step he took was very difficult. As he walked, Chen Yuncheng bursted into tears. He was very sad, but he couldn’t explain why.

       Chen Yuncheng was picked up by his foster father and foster mother when he was very young. At first, he was too young to be aware of theft and human trafficking, so he didn’t think about it and didn’t dare to go to the police; later, as he grew older and more aware, he knew he was a homeless orphan. His foster father and foster mother treated him badly, but they were not bad. He asked very little and was content with a little care. He vaguely knew that it was wrong for him to steal things. Although no one taught him, he always felt very uncomfortable when he saw people who lost their wallets looking for them in a panic. This kind of discomfort often tortured him, but it still never occurred to him that he should go to the police.

       Today was the first time that Chen Yuncheng realised that he had to make a choice, and he could no longer cower in his tortoise shell.

       He cried and carried Ning Junyan to the nearby town street and found the street police station to call the police.

       The police on duty drove them to the town hospital, and some of them went to the wild bamboo forest in the hills to find their trafficker foster father.

       Ning Junyan woke up on the way to the town hospital. He opened his eyes and saw Chen Yuncheng who was sitting next to him crying all the time. He reached out and touched his eyes with his fingers, “Why are you crying?”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t know, he just vaguely felt that he might lose everything he had now and never get it back.

       Ning Junyan struggled to raise his hand to hug him, “Don’t cry.”

       Chen Yuncheng buried his face in Ning Junyan’s arms and didn’t say a word, and only making occasional sobbing noises.

       The police actually told Ning Zhanghong and Shu Rong about their experience, but at that time the couple were immersed in the intense sorrow and joy of finding their missing son and did not pay much attention to the little boy who saved their son’s life. All they know was that their son had almost been killed by a human trafficker and was lucky to have survived.

       So Ning Junyan was taken away and was taught not to think about the life of being trafficked and to not mention Chen Yuncheng. Over time, Ning Junyan himself thought that he had forgotten the past until the moment he saw Chen Yuncheng again. He suddenly realized that many years ago, his life belonged to Chen Yuncheng, and now, he wanted Chen Yuncheng as a person to belong to him as well.

       Ning Junyan felt that this was their destiny and they should be together. Shu Rong wouldn’t understand, and she thought he was crazy. He thought he might be, but so what? All the gentle compromises he made with Chen Yuncheng were to hold Chen Yuncheng so tightly in his hands that no one could let Chen Yuncheng go, including Chen Yuncheng himself.

       So now, he was sitting here and telling his parents, “My life was saved by Chen Yuncheng, it’s not too much to take a lifetime to pay it back.”


The author has something to say:
I’m going to be out all day tomorrow, and I guess it will be quite late when I come back after dinner, so I probably won’t be able to make it!

I can picture little Yuncheng crying hopelessly, knowing that the moment he reported his foster parents was the moment he would never be able to go back to his previous reality

Chapter 87

       Chen Yuncheng laughed when he heard that, he hugged Ning Junyan’s waist, feeling that the thirty-year-old Ning Junyan still looked like an unreasonable child sometimes, so he said, “Where do you want him to go? “

       Ning Junyan responded indifferently, “As long as he doesn’t stay here.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked up at him, “And then are you going to sleep on the upper bunk?”

       Ning Junyan touched his face and said, “Sleep on top of you.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him with a smile for a while, then moved closer to kiss his lips. The two hugged and kissed on the narrow single bed, their movements were soothing and gentle, and the surrounding environment seemed to have become quieter.

       This warmth continued until Guan Anlin suddenly opened the door from outside and stepped in.

       Chen Yuncheng was taken aback and hurriedly turned his head to look over.

       Guan Anlin, who was about to enter the door, was even more frightened and cursed, “Damn it!” He backed out from the door and closed the door heavily with his hands raised.

       Wu Xiaozhu, who was sitting at the counter playing with a mobile phone, raised her head in astonishment and asked, “What’s wrong?”

       Guan Anlin’s face turned red and pale, and he held the doorknob with one hand and was not moving for a long time.

       Wu Xiaozhu couldn’t help but leaned over to take a look, and seeing that the door was closed, she suddenly remembered and said to Guan Anlin, “I forgot to tell you, doctor Ning came by just now.”

       Guan Anlin glared at her, blaming her for not speaking earlier.

       At this time, Chen Yuncheng opened the door from the inside and said to Guan Anlin who was standing at the door, “Why are you standing there for? Come in.”

       Guan Anlin walked in, glanced cautiously at the bed, saw Ning Junyan sitting by the bed, made sure that both of them were fully dressed, then closed the door behind his back and complained, “Can you two stop doing this stuff here in the middle of the day?”

       Chen Yuncheng asked casually, “Do you want us to do it on the street?”

       Guan Anlin found that he didn’t know how to refute for a while.

       Chen Yuncheng leaned against the table, looked at Guan Anlin for a while, and asked, “Where did you go this afternoon?”

       Guan Anlin said, “Just outside.”

       “You’ve been running outside lately?” Chen Yuncheng thought he was a little strange.

       Guan Anlin only said, “Yes, I just went out when I had nothing else to do.” He walked towards the bathroom while talking as if he was trying to avoid Chen Yuncheng’s conversation.

       Chen Yuncheng looked at his back somewhat strangely, then looked away after a while and asked Ning Junyan, “Are you leaving now?”

       “No,” Ning Junyan stood up and answered him, “I’ll wait for you to close up and go back together.”

       Chen Yuncheng nodded, “Okay.”

       Ning Junyan’s house was in a good location, and the neighbourhood environment was also good. The decoration of the house looked very new, and it was simple and beautiful. If it was put up for sale to an agent, it wouldn’t take too long for someone came to inquire.

       Chen Yuncheng knew that Ning Junyan was determined to sell the house and move out to live with him this time, but he did not ask Guan Anlin to move out. He temporarily rented a house between the trade market and the hospital where Ning Junyan worked and moved out on his own.

       Guan Anlin was quite dissatisfied with the fact that Chen Yuncheng wanted to move to live with Ning Junyan and complained, “Are you really going to spend the rest of your life with him?”

       Chen Yuncheng was packing up his things at the moment, took out the clothes from the simple closet, folded them and put them in the box, and said, “What kind of relationship that you won’t be in for the rest of your life?”

       By now, Guan Anlin had given up the idea of correcting Chen Yuncheng, but he was still a little worried and asked, “Is he reliable?”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t answer directly but asked in return, “What do you think?”

       Guan Anlin remained silent, probably thinking that Ning Junyan’s feelings for Chen Yuncheng seemed quite dependable, but he just didn’t believe that the two men could live a lifetime together.

       “Ugh—” Guan Anlin sat on the edge of the bed, and so, the lower bunk will be his from now on. He took off his shoes and stepped on the bed with one foot, “My sister will be coming over for college soon.”

       Chen Yuncheng glanced at him, “So what? Tell your sister to study hard and find a reliable boyfriend in college.”

       “How many reliable men are there?” Guan Anlin said.

       Chen Yuncheng smiled when he heard this.

       After packing his things, Guan Anlin drove him to the newly rented house. When he arrived at the gate of the neighbourhood, Guan Anlin got out of the car and helped him take out the suitcase in the trunk, and asked him, “Why don’t I leave the car with you? It’s more convenient for you to go to and from work every day.”

       Chen Yuncheng bent down and pulled up the trolley of the suitcase, “You drive back and park at the market. I only rented a parking space here. Junyan has to drive to and from get off work every day. I can just take the subway, it’s nothing inconvenient.”

       It was inconvenient for Guan Anlin to smoke while driving, so he stood by the side of the road, lit a cigarette, and said, “Why are you so accommodating to him?”

       When Chen Yuncheng heard this question, he said naturally, “Because I love him.”

       Guan Anlin exhaled a puff of smoke and said, “Disgusting.”

       Chen Yuncheng patted him on the shoulder and said to him, “I don’t know what you’ve been up to lately, but I think we’re doing fine. What do you think?”

       Guan Anlin glanced at him, “I think it’s fine too.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “So cherish it and don’t make the mistakes you made before.”

       Guan Anlin a little  irritably said, “Do you think I’m stupid?” After he said that, he shook his head again, calmed down and said, “Don’t worry, I won’t let you down. I will always be your brother.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled at him.

       Guan Anlin said again, “If that Ning wronged you, you can tell me, and I will help you deal with him.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and said, “Okay.”

       After Guan Anlin drove away, Chen Yuncheng dragged the box upstairs alone. In order to save money, he only rented a one-bedroom house because he didn’t plan to rent a house with Ning Junyan all the time, but he seriously considered buying a house.

       He knew that a large part of the reason why Ning Junyan chose to sell the house was for him. Since Ning Junyan could pay so much for their relationship, he also needed to work harder to plan for the future.

       Although the newly rented house was small, it was nicely decorated, and the area around the neighbourhood was convenient for transportation and commerce.

       Chen Yuncheng had already come to clean up once before, and Ning Junyan also moved some things here, but today was the first day they officially started living together.

       The double bed in the bedroom was covered in brand new light grey sheets with two pillows side by side, with no sign of being slept yet.

       When Chen Yuncheng opened the closet to hang some of his clothes in, he saw a familiar down jacket hanging in the closet. It was the one that Ning Junyan had bought for him before, but he didn’t take it with him when he left. Winter had passed since then, and it was still summer now. Even if Chen Yuncheng returned to Ning Junyan’s place, he never wore this down jacket again, so he didn’t know when Ning Junyan brought it over to hang it up.

       He couldn’t help but smile as he looked at that jacket and continued to hang other clothes in it.

       Ning Junyan waited until after work before driving over. They went out to have dinner together, and when they came back, they cleaned up the room and went to take a shower.

       When Chen Yuncheng returned to the bedroom after taking a shower, Ning Junyan was already sitting on the bed. Chen Yuncheng then sat cross-legged in front of him, cupped his face with his hands, and asked him what he was thinking.

       Ning Jun stretched his hand to unbutton his pyjamas and replied without much emotion, “I was thinking about why you are so slow in taking a shower, I want to fvck you already.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and pulled Ning Junyan’s face with his fingers. Ning Junyan’s handsome face was stretched out of shape, but he still showed no extra expression. He only carefully unbuttoned him but suddenly became impatient when the last two were taken, kneeling up and pressing Chen Yuncheng under his body.

       Chen Yuncheng had been exposed to the sun since he was a child, and his skin was not too white, but his legs were slender and straight. These legs hook Ning Junyan’s waist, and his muscles keep tensing as his body swayed.

       He lay on his back and looked at Ning Junyan’s face and saw that Ning Junyan’s thin lips were slightly tightened, his eyes were half-closed and his outline was narrow and long, and his thick eyelashes cast shadows under his eyes, covering many emotions, as if he couldn’t see to his addiction. But his breathing was clearly audible, and a drop of sweat was slowly sliding against the skin at the corner of his forehead, a little red at the corner of his eyes.

       He was afraid that no one else in the world had seen Ning Junyan like this.

       Being stared at by Chen Yuncheng for too long, Ning Junyan seemed a little displeased, his thin lips tensing up even more as he lowered his head and kissed Chen Yuncheng’s lips, using his body to tell him how he was completely absorbed in it.

       Until the end, Ning Junyan refused to get out of Chen Yuncheng’s body. He maintained the posture of pressing on Chen Yuncheng’s body and reached out from under the pillow to find a ring box, the same one he had proposed to before.

       Ning Junyan lifted the box lid with one hand while supporting his body with the other hand. He then took out the ring inside with his lips, brought it close to Chen Yuncheng’s lips, and rubbed it against it gently.

       Chen Yuncheng breathlessly said, “Say something.”

       Ning Junyan let him hold the ring in his mouth and whispered in his ear, “Marry me.”

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t speak with the ring in his mouth, he looked at Ning Junyan, and a smile gradually appeared in his eyes.

       Ning Junyan then said again, “Will you marry me?”

       The corner of Chen Yuncheng’s mouth couldn’t help showing a smile, lowered his gaze, and nodded.

The author has something to say:
Happy holidays everyone!

Why is it almost over when it felt like I was just writing it?

Bro, how could he answer with a ring in his mouth???

Chapter 86

       On the second day, Ning Junyan still showed up on time for the birthday banquet of old man Ning. The birthday banquet was actually not a big deal, but just a gathering of the family for lunch, but this year there were many relatives coming, so they decided to reserve three tables in the restaurant in a hurry.

       When Ning Junyan arrived, his distant relatives greeted him warmly. Although his response was not enthusiastic, it was polite enough. He was regarded as the best of the younger generation of the Ning family, and even if he was a little cold at ordinary times, his relatives would never feel offended.

       Ning Zhanghong was sitting and talking with one of Ning Junyan’s cousins at this time, and Ning Junyan did not see Shu Rong beside him.

       Ning Junyan greeted the elders first, and then asked Ning Zhanghong, “Where is Mother?”

       Ning Zhanghong glanced at him and said, “She still has some things to deal with, and will come here later.”

       Ning Junyan went to congratulate his grandfather on his birthday again.

       Grandpa Ning took his hand to ask him to sit beside him, and asked in a low voice, “Are you okay?”

       Ning Junyan said, “Who are you asking about, Grandpa?”

       Grandpa Ning said, “Of course it’s you and your mother. I haven’t seen her today.”

       Ning Junyan answered him, “Yuncheng and I are fine. I haven’t seen Mother today, so I don’t know how she is.”

       Grandpa Ning felt a little emotional, patted the back of Ning Junyan’s hand with his thin hand, and then let go of him.

       Before Ning Junyan got up, his lively cousin came over to talk to him again, asking him about his graduate studies, asking him about his postgraduate studies, so he talked to his cousin in a low voice for a few minutes until he saw Shu Rong hurrying in.

       Shu Rong was a little haggard. Although her make-up and hair were neatly done, she was wearing a decent dress, and smiled warmly as soon as she approached, but Ning Junyan could still see the fatigue on her face.

       In front of so many relatives, Shu Rong didn’t say anything to Ning Junyan but just greeted everyone and then took the initiative to order the waiter to prepare the dishes.

       After lunch, all the guests were sent away.

       Ning Junyan called out to Shu Rong in the parking lot, “Mom.”

       Shu Rong looked at him sullenly.

       Shu Rong drove a car by herself today, and she still had something to deal with in the afternoon, so she asked Ning Zhangyu and the others to send Ning Zhanghong back.

       Ning Zhangyu and his husband drove a seven-seater SUV. Before leaving the parking lot, the car stopped when it passed Shu Rong and Ning Junyan.

       The window of the back seat was lowered, and Ning Zhanghong raised his head and said to them, “Let’s talk about what you have to do when you get back.” It seemed that they were afraid that Ning Junyan and Shu Rong would start arguing here.

       Shu Rong gently lifted the shoulder bag on her shoulder and said, “I won’t go back for now. I have something to do in the afternoon.”

       Grandpa Ning was also in this car, sitting side by side with Ning Zhanghong, trying to stick his head over, and said, “Junyan, don’t quarrel with your mother here.”

       Ning Junyan said, “I won’t, Grandpa, you guys go back first.”

       Ning Zhanghong sighed and said to his brother-in-law who was driving, “Let’s go first.”

       The SUV slowly drove away from the two of them.

       Ning Junyan asked Shu Rong again, “Are you okay?”

       Shu Rong sneered, “I thought you didn’t care about me at all.”

       Ning Junyan said: “It’s not that I don’t care about you, it’s you who care about me beyond the limit.”

       Shu Rong turned her face away from him, was silent for a while, and asked, “That Yu Jie. Chen Yuncheng knows him very well, right?”

       Ning Junyan frowned slightly, “Yuncheng doesn’t know him very well. He just knew him in the past. What? Do you have some business going on with him? What’s going on at your new hospital?”

       Shu Rong said, “I don’t have any business dealings with him.” She paused for a moment, squeezing the strap of her bag tightly with one hand, “It’s just that the building we rented for the new hospital was introduced through him.”

       In the beginning, Shu Rong and her partner Zhang Chong had already talked to Yu Jie about investing in a branch of the plastic surgery hospital. Later, Ning Junyan mentioned to Shu Rong that there was something wrong with Yu Jie, and Shu Rong became more thoughtful. After some discussion with Zhang Chong, they pushed Yu Jie aside.

       It was said to be a plastic surgery hospital, but in fact, it was just a beauty salon with micro-plastic surgery programs, and the scale was not significant. At that time, they had already contacted an address through Yu Jie to open a new hospital. The two-story building was originally a private dental hospital, and the conditions were suitable in all aspects. Even the renovation did not require significant changes. They were delighted with the building and wanted to continue negotiating the lease with each other.

       Yu Jie showed great generosity. Although the business could not be done, he took the initiative to act as a middleman for them and introduced a person in charge of the floor leasing project of the other company, surnamed Wang. Shu Rong then signed a contract with the other party and paid a large amount of rent in advance.

       Everything seemed to be going well until two days ago when the renovation was in progress, and she met another team of people who said that they had also signed a contract with the other company to rent the building and were now ready to move in for the renovation.

       Shu Rong hurriedly contacted the company’s person in charge, who said that the person was on a business trip and would not be able to return for the time being and would help her contact the company to inquire about the situation. After two days, Zhang Chong was worried and went to the company to find the person, only to find out that the project leader surnamed Wang, hadn’t come to work for many days. The lease contract they signed was probably a fake, and all the official seals on it had been stolen by the manager surnamed Wang.

       Ning Junyan held the car keys in his hand and heard Shu Rong talk about the current situation; millions of dollars in rent had been paid, but there was no way to enter the venue for renovations. They had reported it to the police, but they didn’t know if they could recover the money.

       “Yuncheng asked me to tell you that there is something wrong with Yu Jie,” Ning Junyan said in a low and serious tone.

       Shu Rong raised her head and looked at him, “I checked Yu Jie, and he has no criminal record. On the surface, he seems to be a clean businessman. Isn’t he more reliable than Chen Yuncheng?”

       Ning Junyan said, “You still think so?”

       Shu Rong’s tone was a little hasty, “I went to find Yu Jie, but he said he didn’t know where Wang had gone, and he was adamant that he had nothing to do with the incident.”

       Ning Junyan looked at her, “Since you trust him so much, then I have nothing to say.”

       Shu Rong reached out and grabbed Ning Junyan’s arm, “It’s not that I want to trust him. I have no choice now, and the key to solving the problem is to find that person surnamed Wang.”

       Ning Junyan asked her, “Don’t you pay rent by transferring money to a corporate account?”

       Shu Rong said, “There was a problem with the account he gave. At that time, his procedures were too complete, and his identity was not faked. We never thought of doubting him. How did we know he would do such a thing? And now we can’t get this building, we’ve spent so much money before and after on the renovations we have booked, and we also have ordered beauty equipment in preparation. Now, we have to raise another sum of money to rent another place, and there is no way to turn around.” Her greatest fear was that her flow of capital would break, and she would not be able to repay the bank loan in time, which would then become more and more troublesome.

       Ning Junyan looked at Shu Rong in silence. There was no good solution to the problem except gaining money. Even if the police had arrested the person, they might not be able to recover the money.

       Shu Rong answered the phone and drove away in a hurry.

       Ning Junyan didn’t have a job in the afternoon, so he drove directly to the trade market to find Chen Yuncheng. When Ning Junyan arrived, Chen Yuncheng was sorting out the order form with Wu Xiaozhu and asked him to go inside to rest by himself.

       After a while, Chen Yuncheng finished the work in hand, went into the inner room and saw Ning Junyan lying on his single bed with a pair of long legs stretched out, and his feet almost reached the railing at the end.

       Chen Yuncheng stretched out his hand to close the door. He then walked over to the bed and knelt down to look at him, “What’s wrong?”

       Ning Junyan stretched out his hand towards him.

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t help but look back to make sure the door was closed, then hugged Ning Junyan and squeezed into the narrow bed with him.

       “Are we going to break the bed?” Chen Yuncheng was inexplicably worried.

       Ning Junyan said, “Guan Anlin shares the same bed with you every day, and the board of your bed hasn’t collapsed.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt a little helpless, “Let’s sleep in two beds, shall we?”

       Ning Junyan didn’t speak. He stared at the wooden bedboard above as if in a daze.

       Chen Yuncheng felt that Ning Junyan had something on his mind, so he asked again, “What’s wrong?”

       Ning Junyan said, “I’ll sell the current house now.”

       Chen Yuncheng sat up and looked at him, “Didn’t we say we wouldn’t sell it?”

       Ning Junyan folded his hands under his head and looked at him, “My current house was bought for me by my parents when I first came back from abroad.”

       Chen Yuncheng tried to understand what he meant, “You don’t want to live in the house they bought for you.”

       Ning Junyan didn’t mention Shu Rong’s business matters but simply said, “My mother just needs a sum of money, so I can just sell the house and return the money to her.”

       Chen Yuncheng did not speak.

       Ning Junyan looked at him, “Why aren’t you saying anything?”

       Chen Yuncheng thought for a while, “I don’t think you need to be so clear-cut with them. They are your parents, after all.”

       Ning Junyan shook his head, “That’s not what I meant. It just so happened that she needed money, and that’s why I thought about this.”

       “How much does she need?” Chen Yuncheng recalled the call Shu Rong answered last night and knew that there must be a problem with her business, “I’ll get you some money first, okay? You don’t have to sell the house, do you?”

       Ning Jun extended his arms to hug him and asked him to lie on his chest, “It’s not that I have to sell the house, but I want to do it.”

       Chen Yuncheng kind of understands Ning Junyan’s thoughts. Ning Junyan wanted to repay the financial debt he owed his parents. Of course, it was not just a house debt, but if he could repay some, he could gain more autonomy.

       “But I still don’t think it’s necessary. Where do you plan to live after you sell the house?” Chen Yuncheng asked him.

       Ning Junyan answered quickly, “Live here with you.”

       “Then what about Guan Anlin?”

       “Tell him to get lost.” Ning Junyan replied with an expressionless and straightforward face, probably wanting to say this for a long time.
