“What, are you scared?” Seeing Tao Mu’s pensive look, Miss Qi ridiculed when he didn’t speak for a long time.
Tao Mu came back to his senses, and looking at the arrogant Miss Qi in front of him, he suddenly felt a sense of familiarity.
However, it was the first time he and Miss Qi met, where did the sense of familiarity come from?
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 )
Tao Mu frowned slightly and thought for a long time before suddenly realizing.
This style of acting and behavior was what’s familiar!
This kind of stupid behavior of going to show off in front of the person who they had a disagreement, and confessing their plan by the way, wasn’t this the same him back then?
Tao Mu clearly remembered that in his previous life, when he was affected by the plot halo and targeted Shen Yu everywhere, he often did this kind of thing. Every time he did something bad, he had to show it off in front of Shen Yu, and then Shen Yu’s admirers would just happen to overhear. So the next development could be imagined…..
Tao Mu’s heart softened when he picked up on the inexplicably familiar aura. When he looked at Miss Qi again, the initial indifference was gone, and there was even a bit of sympathetic tenderness.
“You, why are you looking at me like that?” Unable to stand Tao Mu’s overly gentle and tolerant eyes, Miss Qi’s mind froze inexplicably, and she didn’t say the harsh words she originally wanted to say.
“It’s okay. I just want to thank Miss Qi for providing me with such important news.” Tao Mu smiled slightly and said warmly: “To express my gratitude, I also ask Miss Qi to have a good rest tonight. All expenses will be recorded on my account.”
Miss Qi: “…..”
It must be said that Tao Mu’s appearance was truly very handsome. Those eyes when smiling were even more gentle and tender. Even Miss Qi, who was a self-proclaimed rival in love, couldn’t produce too much hostility and malice in her eyes. Clearly there were a lot of grievances before coming here, but they all quietly dissipated under Tao Mu’s gentle smile.
Miss Qi felt that something was wrong with her, she snorted twice angrily, turned her head and left.
Tao Mu also took the room card and went back to his room. Because he was a little concerned about what Miss Qi said earlier, Tao Mu called Li Xiaoheng to ask him about Miss Qi: “…..She reported her family name and said that she was recognized by Grandpa Li as your fiancée.”
Even though he knew intellectually that what Miss Qi said was absolutely impossible to be true, Tao Mu still felt inexplicably sour. As if a lemon had taken root in his heart.
Li Xiaoheng smiled: “The Li family and the Qi family are also considered family friends. I think it was my grandfather and the old gentleman of the Qi family who made a joke when they were drinking. You must not take it seriously.”
After a pause, Li Xiaoheng explained again: “Think about it, if what Qi Miao said is true, would my youngest aunt still persuade my mother to trick me on blind dates all day long?”
Oh, that’s right!
Tao Mu was relieved. Then he heard Li Xiaoheng change the subject, saying a little curiously: “However, Qi Miao’s behavior is indeed a bit strange. In my impression, although Qi Miao is a bit arrogant, she is not so unreasonable. Why did she have this attitude when it’s the first meeting between the two of you?”
Tao Mu was taken aback when he heard the words, and a sense of extreme disharmony and discomfort flashed inexplicably in his heart. He frowned, and asked in a deep voice: “In your impression, Qi Miao can’t do such an unreasonable thing?”
“It’s not just unreasonable,” Li Xiaoheng pondered for a while, and said, “It’s simply not right.”
Li Xiaoheng was not exaggerating, it was just that they come from families like theirs, and have been influenced by their elders since childhood, so they naturally know the importance of keeping their mouths shut. Sometimes a single remark might affect projects worth hundreds of billions yuan. So before a project was fully finalized, it was impossible for even a seven-year-old child to do such things, let alone Qi Miao’s age.
Tao Mu’s heart sank, and he was inexplicably uneasy. But he didn’t know what he was worried about. He licked his lips, changed the subject subconsciously, and mentioned to Li Xiaoheng what Qi Miao said about Shen Chen exchanging 25% of the shares of Shen Group to Qi Group. Although he was a little surprised by Shen Chen’s quick response, Tao Mu still wanted to know what was up with this 25% of the shares. So before calling Li Xiaoheng, Tao Mu also called the heads of FlyNews Entertainment’s Shanghai and Shenzhen branches and asked them to investigate the specific details of Shen Chen’s transfer of 25% of the shares of the Shen Group.
With FlyNews.com’s capabilities today, it was really easy to inquire about this kind of thing. Tao Mu soon got the information he wanted.
It turned out that the 25% of the shares came from Mrs. Shen’s 10%, Shen Yan’s 5%, and the second son of the Shen family’s 7%. The remaining 3% came from the shares held by Shen Chen and Shen Shiyuan, 1.5% each. In other words, Shen Chen actually transferred out Mrs. Shen, Shen Yan and Shen Yu’s shares. Claiming that the reason why the Shen Group was in today’s crisis was all because of Mrs. Shen and Shen Yan’s misconduct. So Mrs. Shen and Shen Yan had to make amends. As for Shen Yu’s attitude, that didn’t matter at all. Because Shen Yu was not the real second son of the Shen family, he was not qualified to ask about this matter.
Learning of Shen Chen’s handiwork, Tao Mu was amazed. Thinking about Zhuo Yan who had been sowing dissension for this bit of shares, and committed to making the Shen family fall into infighting so that he, the fisherman, could benefit from it, Tao Mu felt a little sympathetic towards him. Sure enough, when Shen Chen made a move, he completely pulled the carpet from under everyone. Using Mrs. Shen, Shen Yan and Shen Yu’s shares in exchange for the support of the Qi Group would not only completely solve the hidden danger of his family being provoked and turned against each other, completely eliminating the possibility of a fire in the backyard, but also attract foreign aid in the form of the Qi Group.
Tao Mu thought, if he was standing in Shen Chen’s shoes, it would be absolutely impossible for him to make such a big sacrifice in such a short period of time. The shares came second, the key lay in Shen Chen’s indifferent attitude. That was his biological mother and sister from the same parents. Even though Mrs. Shen and Shen Yan did so many wrong things, they had never wronged Shen Chen. But Shen Chen was able to exchange Mrs. Shen’s and Shen Yan’s shares for benefits without hesitation. Towards this kind of ruthless decisiveness, Tao Mu felt that he couldn’t compare at all.
However, what was even more unexpected was Shen Chen’s follow-up actions——
After the signing meeting for the cross-shareholding between Qi Group and Shen Group, Shen Chen, who had less than 50% of the shares in his hand, actually watched without doing anything as the Qi Group held a general meeting of shareholders to take over the Shen Group, firing Shen Shiyuan from his chairman position. Even Shen Chen himself resigned because of the Shen family’s affairs, voluntarily resigning from the position of CEO of the Shen Group. The Shen Group also completely changed its name and surname through a shareholder vote, becoming a subsidiary of the Qi Group. And the new CEO of the Shen Group actually turned out to be Zhuo Yan who had been plotting to take over the Shen family.
Of course, not only Tao Mu didn’t think of this, even Shen Shiyuan didn’t think this would happen. Shen Chen’s operation was so flashy that he even deceived Shen Shiyuan. So much so that Shen Shiyuan didn’t realize Shen Chen’s real purpose at all. So, completely unprepared, he was forced to give up the power in his hands.
After the shareholders’ meeting, Shen Shiyuan was so angry that he had a heart attack. Lying awake in the ward, he still didn’t forget to lose his temper with Shen Chen. Shen Chen had just recovered from a serious illness, yet he had to compete with time, fate and luck to pull all of this off. However, in Shen Shiyuan’s eyes, this son definitely lost too much blood and injured his brain, his entire person having gone crazy.
It wasn’t just Shen Shiyuan who felt that something was wrong with Shen Chen’s head, it turned out that there were also some shareholders in the Shen Group who had always been inclined to the Shen family father and son. One must know that the Shen family father and son have been in charge of the Shen Group for so many years. Even though there have been occasional twists and turns in the past two years, overall the business of the group was still booming. Therefore, there were quite a few shareholders and senior managers in the group who supported the Shen family father and son.
They also couldn’t understand Shen Chen’s actions.
Of course, Shen Chen didn’t need the understanding of these people. By the time the dust settled, it was already half a year later. Shen Chen directly approached Tao Mu who had already led the crew to shoot “Soldier Elite” in an abandoned base, and cut straight to the point: “Now we can have a good talk.”
Tao Mu did not expect that Shen Chen would find him immediately after solving the affairs of the Shen Group. But Tao Mu was also very curious about why Shen Chen would do this. So he asked for leave from the crew and took Shen Chen out of the set and back to the dorms.
The shooting environment was very difficult, and the conditions of the dormitory were certainly not good. Shen Chen looked at the soldiers’ dormitory, which was so simple that there was only a bed, a table, a chair and a cabinet, and then sat on the only chair.
Tao Mu made a cup of tea for Shen Chen, sat opposite Shen Chen, and raised his eyebrows, “Tell me, what’s going on?”
Shen Chen pondered for a moment, then said slowly: “Before telling the story, I want to ask you one thing.”
Tao Mu raised his eyebrows, signaling to Shen Chen to speak directly.
Shen Chen paused, and asked directly: “How many lifetimes of memory do you have?”
As soon as these words came out, Tao Mu was shocked.
Looking at Tao Mu’s expression, Shen Chen guessed: “Is it really only one lifetime?”
“What do you mean?” Tao Mu blurted out with cold fingertips.
“The halo on Shen Yu is gone.” Shen Chen stared into Tao Mu’s eyes with his own pair of eyes that were so dark that one couldn’t see the bottom, revealing a trace of ridicule and indifference: “Have you noticed something extra around you?”
Hearing Shen Chen’s words, Tao Mu immediately recalled what he sensed was wrong with Qi Miao back then. His accusation blurted out: “What exactly are you trying to say?”
“Death is not the end.” Shen Chen hooked up the corners of his mouth. He had been having nightmares for the past few days. The story in the dreams repeated over and over again, but there were two endings that could not be escaped after all.
“Either you die, or Shen Yu dies. But no matter which of you two dies in the end, the Shen family will still be buried with you.”
Shen Chen thought of the overlapping memories in his mind: “In every life, either after you die, the Shen family recalls their blood and family ties with you and avenge you, driving Shen Yu to death and then ending in mutual destruction with his admirers. Or Shen Yu dies and “I” figured out that my true love is Shen Yu, so I attacked you secretly, but when I succeeded in revenge, I was discovered by you, and eventually the Shen family was buried with me.”
When Shen Chen said this, he looked at Tao Mu with deep eyes: “Do you think that your world is a book, and Shen Yu is the protagonist? Under his halo radiation, you are unhappy everywhere and things never go your way. In the end, you could only commit suicide in order to be free from the despair?”
Tao Mu’s heart was iced over.
“But in my memory, just like a mirror has a front and a back, there is another version of the story. You are the protagonist, and Shen Yu is the one who is always unhappy and things never go his way. In the end, under your step by step pressure, he is also forced to commit suicide in despair.”
The strange thing was that no matter Tao Mu or Shen Yu, if they were reborn, they could only recall the memory of their tragic death. However, because Shen Chen acted as the avenger of both at the same time, he remembered everything by accident. But the tragedy was that Shen Chen only cared about the interests of the Shen family all his life. However, in the memory of every life, no matter what the ending of Tao Mu and Shen Yu was, the Shen family would always end up in ruins.
“It’s like the curse of the Möbius Loop. It goes round and round and never ends.” Shen Chen chuckled lightly.
“Impossible!” Tao Mu’s three views were completely shattered. He shook his head again and again, refusing to believe Shen Chen’s words: “Absolutely impossible. I admit that I did live in a book in my previous life, but in this life I have, I have already broken free. I now have a family and a lover, that’s right, I didn’t know Li Xiaoheng at all in my previous life, but in this life…..”
Shen Chen looked at Tao Mu’s incoherent babbling, and smiled indifferently: “Since the previous life is a book, how can you be sure that this life is not another book?”
“Have you noticed that you and Shen Yu’s fates are always corresponding? The more successful he is, the more unlucky you are. The more unlucky he is, the more successful you are. Do you feel that the people around you are gradually blindly friendly or hostile to you? Do you feel that the personalities of the people around you are becoming one-sided?”
For some reason, Tao Mu suddenly thought of that Qi Miao, and his voice halted abruptly.
“You don’t have to believe me, but it’s a ten-year cycle. You can test it slowly. When you believe me, come to me. As long as Shen Yu is not dead, I believe there is a chance.”
Shen Chen paused, and then said again: “I don’t know why I suddenly remembered the memories of so many past lives. I don’t even know if my memories are true. I destroyed the Shen Group with my own hands, just to know if there is no Shen Group, will the Shen family still fall into the same ruined destruction——”
“Tell me!” Tao Mu interrupted Shen Chen, and said, “Tell me your memories of every past life.”
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 )
After a pause, Tao Mu’s heart jumped, and he asked again: “Am I with Li Xiaoheng every time I am reborn?” So even Li Xiaoheng was also a plot character?
Shen Chen was silent for a moment, then said, “No.”
“In all my memories, your only lover is Zhuo Yan. Li Xiaoheng…..” Shen Chen paused, but still said: “He should be an exception.”
