It was the first time that Zhan Weiyang met someone whom Chen Youyou called Yu ge.

       Zhu Xinyu was not tall. His thick hair was dyed yellow and combed straight up. There was a pair of black sunglasses hanging in the pocket of his black shirt.

       He brought three young men with him, one of whom looked younger than Chen Youyou and Zhan Weiyang, with a childish look on his face.

       Zhu Xinyu squatted on the steps leading to the underground commercial street and said to the two of them, “Don’t worry, I just want to teach the brat who bullied my little brother a lesson.”

       Chen Youyou said, “Yes!”

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly felt something was wrong. He said, “No, it’s pretending to teach him a lesson.”

       Zhu Xinyu turned his gaze to his face and asked, “What do you mean pretending to teach me a lesson?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “It means you just can’t hit him. Just taunt him. I’ll hide next to him and I’ll rush out soon.”

       Zhu Xinyu took out the sunglasses from his coat pocket and put them on his face, then asked, “What are we going to do if you rush out?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Just run quickly.”

       At this time, a tall and strong young man standing next to Zhu Xinyu was unhappy. He said, “Then we will lose dignity.”

       Zhan Weiyang glanced at Chen Youyou a little at a loss.

       Chen Youyou came close to Zhu Xinyu’s ear, lowered his voice and said, “My classmate’s brain is not very g-good, you, you just follow him along.”

       Zhu Xinyu looked at Zhan Weiyang and said to Chen Youyou, “I can see it.”

       Chen Youyou added, “But you, have to help teach that Xie Ling for me first, and tell him, to be polite to me in the future. Don’t tell, my classmates about this.”

       Zhu Xinyu nodded.

       Zhan Weiyang found that Zhu Xinyu’s face was always facing his direction, but he was wearing a pair of large sunglasses, so he didn’t know if he was looking at him. Chen Youyou secretly spoke into Zhu Xinyu’s ear, just not wanting him to hear it, so he didn’t lean in to listen, but he felt a little uncomfortable.

       After Chen Youyou finished talking to Zhu Xinyu, Zhan Weiyang grabbed Chen Youyou and asked, “What did you say?”

       Chen Youyou whispered, “I told him to listen to you and stop taking action.”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded quickly.

       They walked slowly along the ramp into the commercial street. This commercial street was very narrow, probably only wide enough for a car to pass. The signs of the shops on both sides were still there, but the doors were all closed and no one was there at noon.

       Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou hid at the right stairwell of the exit ramp of the commercial street, which leads to the upper floors, and they went directly to the ground along the ramp.

       Zhu Xinyu and the three young men stood waiting in the middle of the commercial street. They had already seen Xie Ling’s photo. Such a young man with outstanding appearance and temperament, wearing the same school uniform as Chen Youyou and the others, surely wouldn’t be missed.

       Chen Youyou hid behind the wall, squatting on the ground and looking outside. During this time, he looked at the time on his phone. It wouldn’t be long before Xie Ling arrived.

       Zhan Weiyang was a little nervous. He lay on Chen Youyou’s back and looked outside with him, holding Chen Youyou’s shoulder tightly with one hand.

       Chen Youyou raised his head and said, “G-gently.”

       Zhan Weiyang quickly let go and said, “I’m sorry.”

       At this time, they saw Xie Ling riding a bicycle opposite the entrance of this not-so-long underground commercial street.

       Chen Youyou and Zhan Weiyang pulled their heads back almost at the same time, looking at each other guiltily, both afraid that Xie Ling would see them.

       Xie Ling was riding a bicycle very fast. In the blink of an eye, he was in the middle of the commercial street and was stopped by Zhu Xinyu and the others.

       Chen Youyou and Zhan Weiyang didn’t dare to look around. They both squatted against the wall, eavesdropping on the conversation coming from the front.

       Zhu Xinyu said, “Are you Xie Ling?”

       The commercial street was an empty passage, which made even the smallest sound extremely loud, allowing Zhan Weiyang to hear clearly what they were saying.

       However, Xie Ling did not answer Zhu Xinyu’s question.

       One person said, “I’m asking you a question! Are you deaf?”

       Xie Ling then said coldly, “I don’t know you.”

       Zhu Xinyu said, “It doesn’t matter if you don’t know me. Let me tell you, Chen Youyou is my brother. I’m here today to give you a warning. If you see him in the future, be polite. Otherwise, if you mess with him once, I’ll beat you up. Did you hear that?”

       Xie Ling said, “Who is Chen Youyou?”

       Zhan Weiyang felt something was wrong, and he immediately wanted to get up and rush out.

       Chen Youyou grabbed him, pulled him to his side, lowered his voice and said, “Wait, wait!”

       Zhan Weiyang looked at Chen Youyou nervously, and at the same time, he heard someone shouting outside, “What the hell are you pretending for? I’m pissed off just looking at how c0cky you are!”

       He couldn’t hold back his anger and had to go out. Chen Youyou hugged his waist and held him back, saying, “Let them, take care of him a bit!”

       There were some chaotic noises outside, the bicycle bell rang suddenly, and then there was the sound of tyres scraping on the ground, accompanied by the sound of swearing words from the young man who was with Zhu Xinyu.

       Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou were stunned for a moment. When they realised that there might be a fight, they suddenly panicked.

       Naturally, Zhan Weiyang didn’t really want to ask someone to beat up Xie Ling. As for Chen Youyou, he wanted to ask someone to beat up Xie Ling, but he had no idea in his head how to beat up Xie Ling.

       All he wanted was to have a group of young toughs surround Xie Ling and give him a scare, so he’d avoid crossing paths with him in the future. He wasn’t keen on seeing things escalate to physical violence and injuring someone.

       So Chen Youyou released his hold on Zhan Weiyang. Seeing Zhan Weiyang get up and run there, he also ran.

       Zhan Weiyang ran out first and saw Xie Ling rushing toward him on a bicycle. He was startled and stopped quickly, and he froze in place.

       Xie Ling was obviously taken aback. He was not in the mood to waste time with a group of social hooligans. He used his wheels to knock people out of the way and planned to ride away directly. There was an uphill road in front of him, so he stepped on the pedals to accelerate, and as a result, he saw someone rushing in front of his wheel from the side.

       Xie Ling could only forcefully swing the handlebars to the right, trying to evade Zhan Weiyang. However, just as he swung to the side, another person rushed out from behind. This time, he couldn’t dodge anymore and had to squeeze the brakes to stop his bicycle abruptly.

       However, Chen Youyou was still knocked to the ground, and his forehead just brushed against the spokes of the front wheel.

       Zhan Weiyang exclaimed, “Ouch!”

       Chen Youyou sat on the ground, completely stunned. He couldn’t react for a while until Zhan Weiyang squatted down to support him and called him in a panic, “Youyou!”

       He replied blankly, “Ugh.” Then he raised his head and glanced at Xie Ling. He saw Xie Ling looking at him seriously.

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Youyou, you are bleeding.”

       Chen Youyou was a little confused and asked, “Where?” After saying that, he felt warm liquid sliding down his cheek. He couldn’t help but raise his hand and touch it. Sure enough, his fingers were covered with blood. He shouted, “Mom, mom, mom!”

       Zhu Xinyu and others gathered around. When they saw the blood on Chen Youyou’s face, some people subconsciously grabbed Xie Ling’s collar, “This kid is too vicious!”

       Zhan Weiyang has not forgotten his mission. While holding Chen Youyou tightly, he raised his head and shouted, “Let him go!”

       Zhu Xinyu was not sure what to do for a while. His brothers who followed him found Xie Ling very unpleasant and wanted to punish him. However, at the moment, it was more important to drive Chen Youyou to the hospital first.

       He then waved his hand and said, “Forget it, let’s all go.” At this point, he also thought of cooperating with Zhan Weiyang and the others in acting, pointed at Zhan Weiyang, and said to Xie Ling, “Today, it’s for the sake of this little friend that I’m letting you off the hook, so don’t forget to thank him properly.” After that, he asked Chen Youyou, “Do you need me to take you to the hospital?”

       Chen Youyou shook his head and said with a pale face, “I’ll go by myself.”

       Zhu Xinyu didn’t want to cause trouble, so he said, “Okay, call me if you need anything.” After that, he called several young people who were travelling with him and left together.

       Zhan Weiyang helped Chen Youyou up and walked slowly outside, thinking of taking a taxi on the roadside.

       Xie Ling rode behind them.

       Zhan Weiyang turned back to Xie Ling and said, “Are you okay?”

       Xie Ling looked at him and shook his head.

       Zhan Weiyang said again, “I’m sorry, go home by yourself. I can’t take you back. I want to accompany Youyou to the hospital.”

       Chen Youyou was so panicked at this time that he couldn’t help but want to touch his forehead and didn’t notice a word of what they were saying.

       Xie Ling’s tone was still cold, but he said, “I’ll go with you.”
