Everyone knew that Shen Zhen was afraid of Qin Xing. Sometimes Qin Xing himself thought that Shen Zhen might be the only one among all the younger generation who realized his true face. Qin Xing always had a gently smiling face around his family and friends, and he believed that he had never been fierce to Shen Zhen.
But Shen Zhen was afraid of him, just like small animals, small animals always have a certain intuition, and their nature let them know where there was danger.
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
Even Qin Yue, before learning to deal with business with him, naively thought his uncle was a gentle and good person.
But Shen Zhen was not Qin Yue. Shen Zhen had never been taught by Qin Xing, nor had he witnessed Qin Xing’s cruel methods.
Then the only answer was that Shen Zhen was more sensitive than others. Even if he didn’t know what he had done, he could use his sensitivity to see through his appearance and discover his truer side.
The smile on Qin Xing’s face became a bit more gentler.
“What are you doing standing there stupidly?” Qin Xing looked at Shen Zhen with disapproving eyes and said mildly, and then continued to ask, “Does someone want you to leave the Qin family?”
Qin Li next to him immediately became restless.
Qin Li felt like someone had laid out nails on his chair.
So Shen Zhen unabashedly said that he drank too much last night, and because of his age he acted slightly absurd, but he couldn’t remember who he had slept with.
Qin Xing waited for Shen Zhen to finish speaking, looked down at Shen Zhen, and asked in a very concerned tone, “You really don’t remember?”
Shen Zhen: “I really don’t remember!”
Qin Xing: “What are you afraid of? Although your surname is not Qin, but in my eyes there is no difference between you and those surnamed Qin. Do you even have to report to me how many women you slept with?”
Shen Zhen took the stairs handed over to him and complained: “I don’t want to either, but Second Brother said that I disgraced the family.”
Qin Xing seemed to be interested: “Really?”
Qin Li noticed that his uncle’s eyes were on him, so he could only bite the bullet and say, “Those young ladies belong to the Yang, Chen and Zheng families.”
Qin Xing looked at his nephew and asked, “Does our family need ask anything of them?”
Qin Li didn’t dare to continue speaking.
Qin Xing looked at Qin Li with disapproving eyes: “They’re currently sucking up to our family and if they’re asked to send a few daughters over to make Xiao Zhen happy, do you think they would say no?”
Qin Li could only feel his throat go dry.
Qin Li found out that his uncle was not planning to reconcile this matter at all, he was just watching a joke. He was simply telling him, Qin Li, that no matter what he wanted to do or what methods he used, as long as Uncle didn’t agree, he couldn’t do anything!
Even if it was just Shen Zhen who temporarily lived in the Qin family manor, he couldn’t do anything to the other at all!
It turned out that not only was he unable to compare with Qin Yue, he was even unable to compare with Shen Zhen.
“Go back to eat.” Qin Xing instructed Shen Zhen, “You are already old enough. Although there is no rush to get married, but it is normal to have a few lovers.”
He almost didn’t say that you could just sleep around, as long as you don’t take it too seriously.
“As for the matter of leaving.” Qin Xing’s eyes suddenly became cold, his eyes swept across the room, and everyone lowered their heads. Qin Xing’s voice was still gentle as ever, “So long as your Uncle, I, am here no one can make you leave, understand?”
Shen Zhen knew that he had passed the obstacle, at least Qin Li couldn’t do anything more to him on the surface.
After all, Qin Xing made it clear that he stood on his side. From now on, his life in the Qin family would be much better.
This trick to advance by retreating was only effective in front of Uncle Qin. Shen Zhen was also betting that Uncle Qin would keep him.
But he still couldn’t understand why Uncle Qin was willing to accompany him in this play.
Did Qin Xing really love him?
Shen Zhen felt a little coldness on his forehead.
When Shen Zhen returned to that table, Qin Meng looked at him like he was a hero, he really admired Shen Zhen very much!
If he and his little sister wanted to sleep with beautiful women and handsome guys they had to do it secretly. But Shen Zhen was able to directly lay it out in the open, and youngest uncle even encouraged Shen Zhen to continue to sleep around. This was too amazing!
So Qin Meng leaned into Shen Zhen’s ear and said, “I know a lot of beautiful women. I’ll introduce you to them when there’s time.”
He almost didnt say that they could go play with women together.
Shen Zhen smiled and said, “Okay.”
Qin Meng was dumbfounded.
In Qin Meng’s memory, Shen Zhen was the kind of person who had no ability yet acted arrogant. When he talked to Shen Zhen before, Shen Zhen always had an expression like “don’t bother me, my eyes grow on the top of my head”. Shen Zhen had never showed him an amiable attitude before.
It was estimated that after having been abused for a long time, so when Shen Zhen suddenly gave him a good face, he actually felt that Shen Zhen was not so annoying and could be worthy of being a friend.
Shen Zhen also found his mistake, he was too stupid before.
It was not necessarily bad to associate with someone like Qin Meng, but there was definitely advantages.
Putting aside anything else, just speaking of inside information, Qin Meng knew more than he did.
Qin Shan also said, “I know quite a few handsome guys.”
She probably felt that Shen Zhen might have the same hobby as her own.
Soon the siblings began chatting with Shen Zhen. Anyway, the meal was over by now, and there was no rule that they could not speak at the table. They drank tea at the dinner table and chatted.
Qin Shan was a little smarter than Qin Meng. She would not directly say that she would share her lovers with Shen Zhen, but that she knew a lot of people, and these people were very good-looking.
After all, for these playboys and playgirls, there was no difference between playing with women or playing with men.
So long as the playthings were good looking.
Anyway, they had no morals.
Qin Meng brought up Qin Yue’s gossip: “That one surnamed Su, I think Eldest Brother is serious this time.”
Qin Shan sneered: “What serious? A little plaything only, could Eldest Brother actually want to marry him?”
Qin Meng winked at Shen Zhen: “Who knows.”
Shen Zhen also smiled at Qin Meng: “Be careful of being heard.”
Qin Meng quickly closed his mouth. He was most afraid of his youngest uncle at home, and Qin Yue was the second.
Qin Shan sneered: “That surnamed Su really thinks he is some kind of bigshot. Following Eldest Brother around every day. Those who know him know he is a plaything, but those who don’t know might think he is Eldest Brother’s son.”
Qin Shan didn’t like Su Shiqing, and she very clearly showed it on her face. She considered herself to be sharper than her brother, she could see Su Shiqing’s ambition under his skin at a glance, and she hated such people.
Moreover, she was born in the powerful upper class, so of course she didn’t have much regard for a tramp like Su Shiqing who wanted to jump over the dragon’s gate like a carp. (TN: expression for changing one’s social class to a higher one)
Even if everyone else in the family liked Su Shiqing, she still didn’t like him.
But she also knew that there was no shortage of such people in the family.
For example, didn’t her lovers try to curry favor with her because of the surname Qin? Without this surname, as if those lovers would stay by her side.
But she didn’t feel any blow to her dignity. After all, she was born with the surname Qin, and fate made her a person to be flattered, not a flatterer.
So Qin Shan had always had a good impression of Shen Zhen.
Because Shen Zhen didn’t flatter people, although he was not easy to approach, didn’t interact with people, and didn’t even treat her own brother well, Qin Shan felt that this was called having a backbone and possessing integrity.
“Second Brother really wants to kick you out?” Qin Meng looked at Shen Zhen, then sighed, “Second Brother is…..ai…..”
Qin Shan also looked troubled.
Now that Eldest Brother was not here, and Uncle also didn’t care about the internal affairs of the family, Qin Li was really able to be the boss now.
Shen Zhen said gloomily, “But I don’t want to leave. If I leave, I won’t be able to see Big Brother again.”
Qin Meng and Qin Shan looked at Shen Zhen in shock. They knew, to be precise, the younger Qin family members knew that Shen Zhen liked Qin Yue, but they didn’t expect Shen Zhen to admit it.
After all, liking a man whose status was not as good as his own was an anecdote, which proved that Shen Zhen was just playing around with that man.
But liking a man whose status was equal to or even higher than himself was a scandal. Wasn’t that just asking to be played with?
Qin Meng could only swallow his saliva and comforted: “When you and Eldest Brother both get married, maybe there will be a possibility for you two.”
Qin Shan also said, “Everything will be fine after getting married.”
Qin Shan also used herself as an example: “For example, before I get married, I can’t play too crazily, but after I get married, I can play as casually as I want. As if my husband will dare to divorce me because of my lovers?”
Shen Zhen said sadly, “That’s the only way.”
Qin Meng and Qin Shan both breathed a sigh of relief.
They were really afraid that Shen Zhen would go to youngest uncle to confess his feelings, and when the matter came out, the two of them who knew the news in advance would definitely be unlucky.
However, Shen Zhen was really a deeply emotional person. There was already another person around Eldest Brother, and yet he was still deeply in love with Eldest Brother.
As for Shen Zhen just having slept with someone last night——what did this matter? Love and lust were two different things.
Anyway, that was what Qin Meng and Qin Shan thought. They themselves didn’t have clean butts. How could they think that Shen Zhen’s relationship was not sincere enough?
When leaving the dining room, Shen Zhen saw Su Shiqing who was waiting outside the door. Qin Yue was indeed really good to Su Shiqing and never looked down on him because of Su Shiqing’s identity. Shen Zhen felt that Qin Yue also had feelings for him in his last life, because Qin Yue never scolded him before the banquet. He treated him very well. If he did something wrong, Qin Yue would only help him deal with the aftermath.
It was not until Su Shiqing appeared that Shen Zhen knew what Qin Yue’s love was like.
Qin Yue did not blindly favor Su Shiqing. He urged Su Shiqing to grow up, taught Su Shiqing how to gain a foothold in the unpredictable business world, and even gave Su Shiqing all his wealth.
Qin Yue’s love for Su Shiqing was all-encompassing. He practically spared no effort to protect Su Shiqing, and tried his best to let Su Shiqing learn to protect himself.
Compared with Su Shiqing, Shen Zhen felt that he was really blind at that time. Whether a person loved him or not could be seen from the most trivial matters.
“Ah Zhen, I have something to tell you.” Su Shiqing came over and took Shen Zhen’s hand, as if they were still close friends.
Shen Zhen nodded, not rejecting him.
So Su Shiqing led Shen Zhen to the side room, and when they got to the side room, Su Shiqing knelt down in front of Shen Zhen.
He knelt down decisively, probably having already prepared his draft, and before Shen Zhen could help him up, his brows furrowed, and he burst into tears, weeping bitterly and desperately.
“Ah Zhen, I was wrong, I fell in love with Big Brother Qin, I know you love him too, but you are so good, so excellent, you are better than me in everything, you can find a better person, so can you give Brother Qin to me, please? I know I have wronged you, but I can’t control my feelings. If you want to hate or blame, just hate me and blame me, don’t hate Big Brother Qin. “
He took a few steps on his knees, grabbed Shen Zhen’s hand and used it to slap his face: “Hit me, as long as you can calm down, as long as you are happy, if you hit me and scold me, I won’t fight back, or talk back.”
Shen Zhen looked at Su Shiqing who was kneeling in front of him, not knowing what kind of expression he should make.
Probably he should be angry now, but he couldn’t even frown, his heart was like still water, and not even a ripple could be made.
Just as Shen Zhen was about to shake off Su Shiqing’s hand and leave, a loud shout rang out from behind: “Big Brother is back!”
Shen Zhen turned his head and looked at Qin Yue who came up the stairs.
This person was still as he remembered, tall, strong, with a broad chest and eyes like an eagle, his hair was dark, the bridge of his nose was high, and a pair of slashing eyebrows flew upwards into the temples. His handsomeness was purely male, even containing some roughness. He walked without rushing, but every step kicked up a wind.
Qin Yue, who was cultivated by Qin Xing as his successor since childhood, was born as a son of the heaven, possessing a natural aura around him.
It was this aura that convinced Shen Zhen, caused him to fall in love with him willingly, and schemed for him, but in the end he ended up with nothing.
“Big brother Qin, don’t blame Ah Zhen!” Su Shiqing stood up quickly and stood in front of Shen Zhen, he looked at Qin Yue, tears slowly falling, “Big Brother Qin, I am asking Ah Zhen to forgive me, everything is my fault, Ah Zhen didn’t do anything, don’t be angry at Ah Zhen.”
Qin Yue had already come to them. He didn’t know what happened yet, but he didn’t seem confused. Instead, he turned to ask Shen Zhen, “Ah Zhen, what’s the matter?”
Su Shiqing shook his head at Qin Yue with tears in his eyes, telling Shen Zhen not to say anything.
Shen Zhen just straightened his collar. At this time, Qin Yue and Su Shiqing were not completely in love with each other. He still had some weight as a childhood friend. There was still some ambiguity between him and Qin Yue. He said with a smile: “Shi Qing wants me to give him things that don’t belong to me.”
Of course Qin Yue would believe Shen Zhen’s words. After all, since he was a child, Shen Zhen’s feelings for him had always been clear to him. He said to Su Shiqing, “Shiqing, don’t make trouble, just tell me what you want, don’t make it difficult for Ah Zhen.”
The butler came over at this time and was startled by the scene in front of him, but he was an old man who was used to seeing all kinds of wind and rain, so he quickly restrained the surprise in his eyes and said to Shen Zhen, “Young Master Shen, Master Qin wants to see you.”
Shen Zhen straightened his clothes, pushed Su Shiqing away with a palm, and said indifferently, “Don’t get in the way.”
Su Shiqing’s tears flowed faster, and he said in grief, “Ah Zhen, you really can’t forgive me?”
Shen Zhen turned to look at him: “Why should I forgive you?”
Qin Yue frowned. He had only been away for three months. What happened?
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
Su Shiqing’s eyes widened, he begged for forgiveness so humbly, why didn’t Shen Zhen forgive him? Why wasn’t he willing to give Qin Yue to him? Why was Shen Zhen so stingy? Why?!
AN: Su Shiqing: “Because you are stronger than me, you have to yield to me.”
Shen Zhen: “This way of thinking is——brilliant!”
TN: 🚨white lotus alert🚨 (VCF fans, think Shen Yu is annoying? Su Shiqing is right up there with Shen *White Lotus* Yu💀
