“Uncle is picking you up from work recently?” Qin Shan and Shen Zhen were drinking in the company’s coffee shop. Qin Shan liked to drink coffee and added a lot of milk and sugar, while Shen Zhen liked to drink tea. Many people were in the cafe as it was now the company’s fixed rest time. Except for the lunch break, every afternoon from 3:00 to 3:30, they could also rest and walk around.
Of course, if the work at hand was not done well, it was better to complete work in a proper manner, so as not to work overtime at night.

Shen Zhen didn’t intend to hide anything, and there was nothing to hide. Almost everyone knew about his recent “favor”.
Shen Zhen nodded and said, “Yes.”
Qin Shan was a little envious: “That’s great.”
She and her brother have never been favored by Qin Xing, but they still have a very intuitive concept of being favored. After all, Qin Yue was standing there. Qin Yue had sailed smoothly these years, and no matter what he did, Qin Xing would support and escort him. For a while with Qin Meng, she had been so jealous that her eyes turned red.
However, over time, this jealous mentality gradually disappeared.
They clearly knew that even without Qin Yue, it would never be their turn.
No matter what, there was still Qin Li.
“Has Qin Yue been looking for you recently?” Qin Shan asked suddenly.
Shen Zhen shook his head: “No, what’s the matter?”
Qin Shan whispered, “He called me and asked me to call you out.”
Shen Zhen was surprised: “Why didn’t he call me directly?”
Only then did Qin Shan show a surprised expression: “He said he couldn’t get through to you, thinking you had blocked his number.”
Shen Zhen took out his mobile phone and took a look. Sure enough, he did block Qin Yue, but he didn’t have any memory of when he did it.
Qin Shan rolled her eyes and said, “I told him to call you from another number, but he won’t, I really don’t know what he is insisting on.”
Shen Zhen smiled: “I don’t know either.”
Qin Shan suddenly said: “Anyway, don’t listen to what he says. Do you know that Su Shiqing is expelled from the Su family? The Su family is also quite ruthless, directly putting out an announcement on the newspapers and even the internet media. It looks like they really wants to draw a clear line with Su Shiqing.”
This was within Shen Zhen’s expectation.
After all, Su Shiqing couldn’t give the Su family any benefits now, and Qin Yue had no real power in his hands. These two were practically useless at this stage.
It was obvious whose side the Su family would choose to stand on.
As soon as Qin Shan finished speaking, Shen Zhen knew that Qin Yue would find a way to find him in the near future.
He couldn’t coerce and tempt the Shen family to agree with Su Shiqing being registered under the Shen family like he did in his previous life, so he could only use himself as a breakthrough point, probably attempt to play the emotional card.
Shen Zhen asked Qin Shan: “Is your brother still playing video games at home recently?”
Qin Shan shrugged: “That’s all he likes, no matter how much I say, he won’t listen.”
As a playboy who didn’t care about production, Qin Meng had no special hobbies other than playing with female stars, and he never played with famous female stars, so the money he spent was not as much as one would think. Other than that, he just stayed at home like a complete homebody and otaku. The Qin family manor has a room that was his personal lounge, where besides the computer, there were various figurines, comics, and game consoles.
He was also a collector who liked to collect some antique mobile phones and game consoles, as well as cameras.
If he wasn’t born in the Qin family, he probably wouldn’t be able to develop these hobbies.
Qin Shan: “Don’t mention him, anyway, Qin Yue will definitely come find you, so don’t let him fool you with just a few words.”
Qin Shan also said earnestly: “Su Shiqing is already so miserable, and Qin Yue has not given up on him. I think it is impossible for Qin Yue to fall out of love with him.”
Don’t know what happened to Qin Shan, but now Qin Shan didn’t even bother to call Qin Yue Eldest Brother, but directly called Qin Yue by his name.
This change was so obvious that Shen Zhen could not easily ask anything about it.
The break time passed quickly, and Shen Zhen returned to the office. Qin Xing did not come to the company today.
Shen Zhen sat in Qin Xing’s office in a daze, with nothing to do, he took out the notes Brother Ma gave him.
Reviewing Qin Xing’s living habits again.
Things happened just as Qin Shan predicted. When Shen Zhen left the company building after getting off work, he saw Qin Yue outside the building. Qin Yue was standing under a tree. He was not wearing a suit, but casual clothes. He was very tall, with broad shoulders and a narrow waist, and coupled with an outstanding face, people passing by would often turn their heads to look at him involuntarily.
One had to admit that the Qin family had good genes.
Shen Zhen originally wanted to pretend not to see Qin Yue, but was suddenly stopped by a familiar voice. The person who called him was not Qin Yue, but Su Shiqing.
Shen Zhen turned his head, and sure enough, he saw Su Shiqing walking over.
No wonder he didn’t see Su Shiqing by Qin Yue’s side just now, he had come to find him first.
Shen Zhen stopped, and Su Shiqing jogged over. He looked very tired. People who didn’t know better probably thought he had ran a few kilometers.
Su Shiqing put his hands on his knees and said out of breath, “Ah Zhen, I thought you had already left, but luckily I caught up.”
Qin Yue also came over at this time.
The three of them standing together attracted a lot of attention.
Shen Zhen looked at his watch, it was 6:10 in the afternoon, and asked: “Look for a place to sit and chat?”
Qin Yue looked at Shen Zhen with complicated eyes, and nodded.
Su Shiqing breathed a sigh of relief, looking at Shen Zhen with obvious expectation, maybe he felt that Shen Zhen would help him get out of his current predicament.
“Tell me, what is it?” Shen Zhen sat on the sofa in the private booth, “I made an appointment with Uncle for dinner at seven o’clock, so it’s best to speak quickly if you have anything to say.”
“That’s right.” Shen Zhen looked at Su Shiqing, “I remember someone said that I was a gloating villain when we met last time, and that he must expose my true colors to Uncle? Who said that?”
Su Shiqing lowered his head: “…..”
When Su Shiqing raised his head again, his eyes were full of tears. He suddenly stood up, as if he was about to kneel down to Shen Zhen in the next second.
“Ah Zhen, don’t quibble with me, and don’t be angry with me. I know it’s my fault. I didn’t do it right. At that time, I thought you were going astray. Ah Yue had already lectured me, I’m the small-minded one, believing myself to be infallible, Ah Zhen, don’t be angry anymore, okay?”
Su Shiqing was also very remarkable in a certain way.
Once he found himself at a disadvantage, he would apologize decisively. As for whether he knew what he did wrong, that was unknown.
Shen Zhen: “Su Shiqing, I think you don’t understand a truth.”
Su Shiqing looked at him with a slightly dumb expression.
Shen Zhen: “It’s not that if you apologize, then others have the obligation to forgive you. They could choose not to forgive.”
Judging from the fact that Su Shiqing had been treated to a verbal smackdown by Shen Zhen so many times and still didn’t have a long memory, it seemed he couldn’t understand Shen Zhen’s meaning at all.
Su Shiqing asked in disbelief: “How can this be? I sincerely apologize to you. I really know that I was wrong. Ah Zhen, what do you want me to do to calm your anger down?”
Shen Zhen thought for a while: “Then take off your clothes and go out to run a lap around the block, maybe I will calm down then.”
Shen Zhen added: “But just maybe, it depends on how I feel after you finish.”
“Xiao Zhen.” Qin Yue frowned and said, “Don’t be too aggressive.”
Shen Zhen had no expression, and said indifferently: “Then teach me, how can I not be aggressive?”
Qin Yue sighed: “Xiao Zhen, don’t be so sharp.” He felt that for some reason Shen Zhen became like a hedgehog, whose goal was to stab everyone who approached him. Qin Yue wanted to stretch his hand out towards Shen Zhen, but Shen Zhen seemed to contemptuously dismiss his outstretched hand.
However, Qin Yue still did not doubt that Shen Zhen loved him.
Since junior high school, Shen Zhen had been by his side, and the two were inseparable. He still remembered that when they graduated from high school, Shen Zhen said to him under the school’s banyan tree: “Ah Yue, how good would it be if we can always be like this? Always just the two of us.”
He knew that Shen Zhen loved him, so he never worried that Shen Zhen would leave him.
Shen Zhen was very stubborn, he held onto his beliefs after making a decision, and he would not turn back even when he hit the south wall.
He won’t change his mind just because of one or two conflicts with himself.
As for getting so close to Uncle, it was probably just to make him feel a sense of crisis and to make him jealous.
Qin Yue admitted that Shen Zhen becoming closer and closer to Uncle really made him feel very uncomfortable.
But he didn’t know whether he was more jealous of Uncle, or more jealous of Shen Zhen getting Uncle’s favor.
Qin Yue could only tell himself that one was his uncle and the other was someone who admired him, they were likely just teaching him a little lesson, and they wouldn’t really dislike him and leave him.
Shen Zhen: “I’m sharp?”
Qin Yue sighed: “Xiao Zhen, you were not like this before. You used to be very good to Shi Qing, do you remember?”
Shen Zhen said indifferently: “I don’t remember.”
Qin Yue: “…..”
Su Shiqing sobbed as he spoke, “Ah Zhen, what can I do to calm your anger down? How about you hit me? I won’t fight back no matter how much you hit me. As long as you are happy, I can do whatever you want.”
Shen Zhen stood up suddenly, and he looked down at Su Shiqing: “That’s all you can say? I asked you to go run a lap naked, why didn’t you go? Didn’t you say that you can do whatever I want?”
Su Shiqing was so dumbfounded that he forgot to shed tears.
Qin Yue: “Xiao Zhen! You should stop before going too far!”
Shen Zhen looked at Qin Yue and suddenly felt sad. Ever since Su Shiqing appeared, Qin Yue’s mind seemed to have turned into a pot of paste.
If Qin Yue was still the Qin Yue before Su Shiqing appeared, he would never have come here, nor would he have said such things to him.
Because everyone knew that the key was not Shen Zhen, but Qin Xing.
As long as Qin Yue could retrieve Qin Xing’s “heart”, these were all minor problems.
“You want to go to the Shen family?” Shen Zhen suddenly said to Su Shiqing, “Are you sure?”
Su Shiqing nodded quickly: “Xiao Zhen, this is what I think. After I go to the Shen family, I will get along well with your parents and younger brothers to ease the relationship between you. You can also go to the Shen’s house in the future, which is also your home.”
Shen Zhen: “Since you like it so much, then go ahead.”
Su Shiqing and Qin Yue didn’t speak. Su Shiqing was ecstatic, but after the ecstasy, he was surprised. He couldn’t believe that Shen Zhen so easily gave in.
As for Qin Yue, he was pondering without saying a word. His brain told him that there must be something wrong here, but no matter how he thought about it, he couldn’t figure it out.
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 )
When Shen Zhen left, he said, “I’ll only help this time, don’t come to me anymore in the future.”
Looking at the flow of people and vehicles on the street, the corners of Shen Zhen’s mouth curled up, and he hailed a taxi.
You thought it was heaven, but unfortunately, it was only hell.
