Qin Yue was sitting in the office when he received the notice to return to China. His whole person was in a daze. When the assistant came to pick him up, he didn’t even know how he got up from the chair.
When he first came, he was full of ambitions, thinking that even if he didn’t have decision-making power, he could still make achievements and make his uncle look at him in a new light.

But when did things go astray?
Sitting on the plane, Qin Yue recalled everything after he went abroad.
It started when he first came, and now when he looked back at his previous proposal he felt like his head was full of sh*t.
This kind of situation maintained until a month ago, when he dug out his previous proposal documents in the middle of the night. He was so angry with his previous self and he didn’t know how he would make such proposals in the first place.
Back at the Qin family manor, Qin Yue stood at the gate. This was his home, where he grew up and was educated.
He used to be half of the family’s decision-maker.
But now he was like a dog with its tail between its legs, being summoned back pathetically.
“Eldest Young Master Qin, Sir is waiting for you.” The butler came out from the door, and still invited Qin Yue in as respectfully as before.
Qin Yue walked in expressionlessly, but his fingers were trembling slightly.
The butler said, “Sir is waiting for you.”
Qin Yue: “…..Is there anyone else?”
The butler lowered his head, making it difficult for people to see his expression: “Young Master Shen is also there.”
Qin Yue asked the butler: “Xiao Zhen has returned to the Qin family now?”
He remembered that Shen Zhen left the Qin family before he went abroad, and he thought that Shen Zhen would never come back.
Butler: “Young Master Shen is a guest.”
Qin Yue understood. Shen Zhen only came to stay in the Qin family manor occasionally, and would not stay for a long time.
After being led to the study room, Qin Yue stood at the door and took a deep breath. On the way, he had finished drafting how he should report to his uncle.
“Sir, the eldest young master is here.” The butler said at the door.
Qin Xing’s deep voice came from inside: “Let him in.”
The butler opened the door of the study.
Qin Yue took a step and walked around the bookshelf, only then did he see Qin Xing sitting on the sofa, and Shen Zhen sitting next to Qin Xing pouring tea.
Everyone had their own personal space, and once others encroached on this personal space, they would feel uncomfortable.
Qin Yue didn’t know how wide Qin Xing’s personal space was, but Qin Yue knew that Qin Xing didn’t like to be close to people.
Even Qin Yue never stood a close distance to Qin Xing.
But Shen Zhen was sitting next to Qin Xing at this time, and their knees were almost touching, but Qin Xing didn’t even raise his eyebrows.
“You’re here.” Qin Xing seemed to have just discovered Qin Yue’s presence, the smile on his mouth disappearing, “Sit.”
Qin Yue: “Uncle…..”
Qin Xing: “Sit down and talk.”
Qin Yue could only go over and sit down, sitting opposite Qin Xing. His eyes swept over Qin Xing, and soon moved to Shen Zhen. He hadn’t looked at Shen Zhen for a long time. When he was abroad, he couldn’t even remember what Shen Zhen looked like.
But at this moment, Shen Zhen’s figure appeared in Qin Yue’s mind very clearly.
He suddenly recalled when Shen Zhen was younger, when they were still in school.
At that time, they were the closest friends. From the beginning of their acquaintance, they had never been estranged. At that time, Qin Yue thought that he and Shen Zhen would stay together forever. Even if they did not end up with each other and married others, they would still be good brothers.
“How was it abroad?” Qin Xing noticed Qin Yue looking at Shen Zhen, and he looked over with sharp eyes.
Qin Yue quickly lowered his head: “It’s fine.”
Qin Xing smiled and said, “What have you learned?”
Qin Yue: “I was too arrogant in the early stage, and the proposals I made were too radical. At this stage, I need to stabilize the foreign market first, increase my reputation, and then gradually proceed with my plans.”
Qin Xing patted Shen Zhen’s hand: “Xiao Zhen, go to the kitchen to see if there is any dessert.”
Shen Zhen said obediently: “Okay.”
Shen Zhen knew that Qin Xing wanted him to not be present for the following conversation, otherwise he could just ask the butler to bring the desserts.
After Shen Zhen left, Qin Xing looked at Qin Yue again. At this time, Qin Xing was very different from before. His face was expressionless and his eyes were deep. He was sitting on the sofa with feet planted apart, and his gentle temperament disappeared without a trace. His whole person was full of an oppressive aura, like a huge and dangerous predator.
Qin Yue sat with his back straight. He could only feel like something was squeezing his heart, which made him almost unable to breathe. He clenched both hands into fists, but he couldn’t exert any strength.
For the first time, Qin Yue felt that he was so weak.
He was so weak that when Qin Xing looked at him, he could only shrink back.
“Ah Yue.” Qin Xing began, “Uncle had trained you for so many years, only to cultivate a waste. How do you think Uncle is feeling now?”
Qin Yue: “Uncle, I already know where my problem is. Uncle, please give me another chance! Uncle!”
Qin Xing was clearly looking directly at Qin Yue, but Qin Yue felt that Qin Xing was looking down on him.
“I gave you a chance.” Qin Xing’s tone was calm, “More than once.”
Qin Yue had already broken out in a cold sweat, the sweat on his back soaking through his clothes.
Qin Xing said: “I also told you that you are not my only nephew. Is it because I gave you too much preferential treatment that made you feel that you are different?”
Qin Xing raised his head and said with a pale face, “Uncle…..”
Qin Xing: “The Qin family can feed Ah Meng, and it can also feed you.”
Qin Yue’s eyes were filled with pleading: “Uncle, I know that my ability is in doubt now, and I don’t ask you to treat me like before. I want to not rely on the family and start my own business.”
Qin Xing fell silent, and he looked at Qin Yue carefully.
“Okay.” Qin Xing said, “I won’t provide you with any help, and you can’t tell anyone that you are a child of the Qin family. Before you succeed, you can’t appear in front of me.”
Qin Yue breathed a sigh of relief: “Thank you, Uncle.”
“You don’t need to thank me.” Qin Xing said, “If you want to thank me, go thank Xiao Zhen.”
Qin Yue looked at Qin Xing strangely.
Qin Xing: “You’re dismissed.”
When Qin Yue came out of the study, he happened to meet Shen Zhen. Qin Yue greeted Shen Zhen unnaturally: “Xiao Zhen.”
Shen Zhen had no expression: “What?”
Qin Yue: “In the past, I did a lot of wrong, I was not level-headed enough, and I didn’t consider your point of view.”
“No need to apologize, you did nothing wrong.” Shen Zhen held the dessert, “I’m going in first.”
Qin Yue made way for Shen Zhen.
Before Shen Zhen opened the door, he grabbed Shen Zhen’s arm and whispered, “Can we talk in private?”
Shen Zhen looked at Qin Yue strangely: “Why? Is it necessary?”
“I want to apologize to you for what happened before.” Qin Yue said, “I shouldn’t have been so rude, and I shouldn’t have said that about you.”
Shen Zhen felt that Qin Yue might be out of his mind, he didn’t believe that Qin Yue had suddenly discovered his conscience. After all, Qin Yue in his previous life was practically crazy about Su Shiqing. Once someone made Su Shiqing unhappy, Qin Yue could drive the other to bankruptcy and destruction without a blink of an eye. As the rich and powerful, Qin Yue didn’t even need to dirty hus hands himself if he wanted to deal with anyone.
Qin Yue, who fell in love with Su Shiqing, had long since lost his sense of right and wrong. It would be really strange if he could know what was right and what was wrong.
“Oh, really?” Shen Zhen said lightly, “But, that’s not important.”
Compared with what Qin Yue did in his previous life, what he did in this life was just superficial, without any pain or itch.
“Xiao Zhen.” Qin Yue said, “I thought we were still good friends.”
Shen Zhen turned his head to look at him, his expression full of sarcasm: “You think?”
Qin Yue looked at him.
Shen Zhen smiled and said, “Is what you think right?”
With that said, Shen Zhen opened the door of the study room, no longer sparing Qin Yue a look, walking straight in and to Qin Xing’s side.
After putting the plate of dessert on the table, Shen Zhen sat beside Qin Xing again.
“What did Ah Yue say to you?” Qin Xing asked.
Shen Zhen: “He apologized to me.”
Qin Xing’s eyes flickered slightly: “Oh? Did Xiao Zhen forgive him?”
Shen Zhen looked up, with a puzzled expression: “I was never angry at all, so I can’t talk about forgiveness.”
Qin Xing took a sip of tea, his knuckles whitening slightly while holding the teacup.
Shen Zhen: “I don’t have any feelings for him now. It’s like looking at a stone. When it’s in the way and blocking the road, I would give a second look and become more irritable, but when it’s not in the way, I don’t notice it at all.”
Qin Xing’s finger joints relaxed, and he reached out and touched Shen Zhen’s head, with a gentle and loving tone: “Ah Yue is going to start his own business.”
Shen Zhen said without exception: “Really?”
If Qin Yue set up his own business, he should take Su Shiqing away from the Chu family, right?
Qin Xing said again: “Su Shiqing is working as a custodian in the Qin Group.”
“Custodian?” Shen Zhen was really surprised now, would a person like Su Shiqing, who needed to be taken care of and served by others, be willing to lower his profile and become a custodian? Did the Chu family drive him out? No, if the Chu family kicked him out, he would just go to Chu Haoyi or Qin Yue.
He could even go to his parents, so why would he work as a custodian in the Qin Group?
For the first time, Shen Zhen couldn’t guess what Su Shiqing was thinking.
Su Shiqing’s brain circuit was sometimes really unpredictable.
Shen Zhen said: “Why doesn’t he become an office worker? But a custodian instead?”
Qin Group’s custodians were more relaxed than those of other companies. Qin Group’s management was strict, there would be no garbage except dust, and the treatment was not bad. So the custodians also cherished their jobs.
But no matter how good it was, it didn’t seem like a job that Su Shiqing would like. A person like Su Shiqing didn’t like work at all. He preferred the feeling of living off others, being a kept canary, not worrying about food and drink, and just relying on his master’s affections to live.
And why did Qin Xing pay attention to Su Shiqing?
Shen Zhen looked at Qin Xing.
Qin Xing chuckled lowly. He seemed to guess what Shen Zhen was thinking. He sat up and said in Shen Zhen’s ear, “What? Are you jealous?”
Shen Zhen silently reached out to touch his ear, and tilted his head: “I’m not jealous, it’s Su Shiqing’s blessing that you even care about him.”
Qin Xing was amused, he suddenly wrapped his arms around Shen Zhen’s shoulders, and Shen Zhen was pulled into Qin Xing’s embrace before he could react.
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 )
Qin Xing: “Xiao Zhen wronged Uncle, so Uncle has to make a defense, right?”
Shen Zhen tried hard to breathe steadily, but still couldn’t stop the blood from rushing up. He wanted to break away from Qin Xing’s embrace, but Qin Xing’s arms were like cast steel, motionless.
Qin Xing’s chin rested on the top of Shen Zhen’s head, and Shen Zhen was suddenly feeling a little dazed.
