In this corner of the garden, few people pass by, so it could be regarded as a hidden place.
If someone passed by at this time, they would find that the atmosphere in this corner was very strange.
Su Shiqing bit his lower lip. He hadn’t completely lost his mind yet. He knew that what Shen Zhen said was right. He really had no bargaining chip. Qin Yue had lost his special status now. Without Qin Xing to back him up, he was just the eldest young master of the Qin family in name only. Not many people would respect him as before. After all, the current situation was changing rapidly, and Qin Yue wasn’t the only junior in the Qin family.
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 )
There was Qin Li, or at worst, Qin Meng and Qin Shan.
Although Qin Meng had no skills, Qin Shan had emerged as a new force during this period, attracting the attention of many people.
As for Chu Haoyi, although he would definitely inherit the Chu family, the Chu family’s weight was simply not comparable to that of the Qin family.
Su Shiqing lowered his eyes, weighing the pros and cons. He fisted his hands, raised his head and said to Qin Yue who was about to speak: “Ah Yue…..maybe Xiao Zhen didn’t mean it, let’s, let’s go back first.”
Qin Yue didn’t think as much as Su Shiqing, he only had one thought in his mind now, and that was “he couldn’t make Shi Qing feel wronged”.
The thought was so strong that he couldn’t even think about anything else.
“Shen Zhen.” Qin Yue asked suddenly, “I should ask you this question. Do you think Uncle would always be willing to support you? Just because he likes you now doesn’t mean he will like you in the future, but I’m different from you. Uncle and I are related by blood, I am his nephew from birth until my death.”
“Putting all your hopes on illusory feelings, Shen Zhen, when did you become so naive?”
Shen Zhen suddenly laughed.
Qin Yue’s face changed greatly: “What are you laughing at? What’s so funny?”
Shen Zhen shook his head and said, “I laugh at you because to this day you still don’t understand why you were rejected by Qin Xing.”
“I’m not rejected by Uncle, Uncle is just testing me.” Qin Yue almost squeezed out these words from between his teeth.
Shen Zhen: “Really? Have you always comforted yourself like this?”
Unable to bear it any longer, Qin Yue took a step forward and grabbed Shen Zhen’s collar. Shen Zhen looked at him without any waves in his eyes.
“Do it.” Shen Zhen chuckled, “Don’t you want to teach me a lesson? If you don’t shake your fist, how can you teach me a lesson?”
Qin Yue: “You think I don’t dare?”
Shen Zhen pulled away Qin Yue’s hand, and said with a half-smile: “If you dare, you won’t just be bluffing as you are now.”
Qin Yue looked at him with a dark face, but couldn’t even utter a single rebuttal.
Yes, he didn’t dare to do anything to Shen Zhen at all now. Now Shen Zhen was the person Qin Xing liked the most. No matter what this kind of like was, Qin Yue knew clearly that according to his uncle’s protective streak, as long as he dared to even touch a single hair on Shen Zhen, his end would only be more miserable.
And currently, he just wanted to give Shen Zhen a warning.
Even if he really wanted to deal with Shen Zhen, it would not be as simple as giving him a punch directly.
At least it had to be done seamlessly, so that people couldn’t see that it was by his hands, only that way would it be safe enough.
Su Shiqing stood next to him, adding fuel to the fire, he said: “Xiao Zhen…..I just want to know why you hit me, I…..I just want to support myself, yet you don’t want me to appear in Qin Group that much?”
Shen Zhen seemed as if he finally noticed Su Shiqing at this time. He felt disgusted when he saw Su Shiqing’s pitiful expression. He turned his head and stopped looking at Su Shiqing. His tone when speaking was very indifferent, as if Su Shiqing was just a clown who could not affect him in any way.
“Where you go and what you do, I don’t care, and I don’t want to care.” Shen Zhen sneered.
“As for why I hit you, I thought you wouldn’t take the initiative to ask.”
Shen Zhen tilted his head: “What is it that makes you think, all the men in the world should fall in love with you?”
“Can’t Qin Yue satisfy you? Yet you still want to reach out to Uncle Qin, your ambition is not small at all.”
Su Shiqing immediately shouted: “You are slandering me! You are insulting my person! What do you think of me as! A courtesan? Uncle Qin is Ah Yue’s uncle, I just want to say a few good words for Ah Yue in front of Uncle Qin!”
Shen Zhen didn’t bother to argue with him: “Then you are really capable indeed. Just to say a few words, you even want to make body contact.”
Su Shiqing: “I didn’t! You’re slandering me! Ah Zhen! I know you hate me because I’m with Ah Yue, but why don’t you think about it? You and Ah Yue have never been in love at all. Because you and Ah Yue knew each other earlier, I have always been stepping back, but you can’t keep bullying me because of this…..”
Su Shiqing’s tears could always flow as soon as he wanted it to like a faucet: “In regards to love, there is never such a thing as first come first serve.”
“Su Shiqing.” Shen Zhen said, “Have I ever voluntarily troubled you? If you hadn’t always bounced in front of me, I wouldn’t even have any interest in dealing with you.”
Su Shiqing was taken aback.
Shen Zhen really didn’t seem to have taken the initiative to make trouble for him.
But his life was getting worse and worse, and even Ah Yue became disliked by Uncle Qin.
——No, Shen Zhen must have done something secretly behind his back and said something in front of Uncle Qin, otherwise it would not be possible to become like this.
The reason why he had such a miserable life was because of Shen Zhen.
Wasn’t Shen Li, who cause him to be lame, Shen Zhen’s younger brother?
Shen Zhen must have asked him to make trouble for him!
Su Shiqing sobbed and said: “Ah Yue, let him go, he has always been like this, he only finds problems in others, but he can’t see the problems in himself. Shen Zhen, I don’t know how you became like this, but starting today, you and I are no longer friends, and I will not consider for you anymore.”
When Qin Yue heard this, he glared at Shen Zhen: “Are you really not regretful? Are you sure you won’t apologize?”
Shen Zhen: “En, do you want me to put it down on paper that I guarantee I won’t regret it?”
Qin Yue let out a short laugh in anger, and at the end of the laugh, he said to Shen Zhen: “If you encounter any trouble in the future, don’t come to me.”
Shen Zhen made an OK gesture and smiled at Qin Yue: “I will do what I say, but let me remind you that if you come to trouble me, I will only make you more miserable.”
Qin Yue: “Shen Zhen, don’t be too arrogant. If you don’t have Uncle, you are nothing, completely worthless.”
Shen Zhen chuckled: “The same to you.”
When you were favored, you would take it for granted that you were worthy.
But when others were favored, you feel that others were relying on ingratiation.
People were always like this.
“Is there anything else you want to say?” Shen Zhen asked.
Qin Yue and Shen Zhen looked at each other: “From now on, we are no longer friends. I will always remember what you did to Shi Qing. One day, you will pay the same price, and you can go back and tell Uncle, but I won’t change my mind.”
Shen Zhen nodded: “I have no opinion, and I will not tell Uncle Qin. That’s bad taste.”
He was too lazy to deal with Qin Yue and Su Shiqing because they were no longer a threat to him.
But if they rushed over to find trouble, Shen Zhen didn’t have the heart of a bodhisattva.
Since you were looking for death, don’t blame the knife for being too sharp.
“I’ll go first.” Shen Zhen was led away by Qin Yue in a fit of anger. When he came back, his clothes were still neat and tidy, as if he just went away to chat for a while.
In the gala hall, Li Xiaolin finally breathed a sigh of relief when she saw Shen Zhen coming back. She didn’t feel comfortable staying alone in such a venue, and she didn’t know where Shen Zhen had gone, so she could only sit and wait in the lounge area near the door.
“Have you been waiting long?” Shen Zhen smiled slightly at Li Xiaolin.
Li Xiaolin felt her heart beat faster, shook her head and said, “It’s not too long.”
“Did you eat anything?” Shen Zhen led Li Xiaolin inside.
Li Xiaolin whispered, “I said before, I am trying to lose weight.”
When Shen Zhen thought about it, it seemed that she had indeed said it before.
Seeing Shen Zhen appearing, many people surrounded him again. They just wanted to establish a good relationship with Shen Zhen and become familiar with each other.
At this time, there was still nearly a month left before Qin Xing returned from abroad.
Shen Zhen sent messages to Qin Xing every day, and the two often chatted, but their conversations consisted more about business matters.
Qin Xing taught Shen Zhen almost by hand, just like how he taught Qin Yue back then, but even more patiently and meticulously.
If it weren’t for Shen Zhen always remembering that his daytime was Qin Xing’s night, maybe Qin Xing would have to stay up several nights.
He also knew that Qin Yue would definitely make his move, but it was not clear how.
But he soon found out.
First, someone he knew from the media informed him that someone seemed to be trying to mess with him during this period.
They had already bought a lot of media and online media, but they haven’t released them yet.
Because real estate was an industry, the most one could do was to report tax evasion. After all, the price was supervised by the market, so it was not easy to get hold of any weakness.
But network information companies were different, relying on things that were originally virtual.
“It seems that they want to issue a press release saying that your information company leaks user information, and all user information would be leaked, sold to second-hand traffickers, and used as collateral for loans.”
“I just got this news, I don’t know anything else.”
It was not clear on that side either: “How many platforms and media people would post this, I don’t have any data here, so you have to think about a solution.”
Once it had something to do with credit investigation.
Even if the company’s innocence was finally clarified, the loss of customers was impossible to recover.
After the issue became big, new customers would no longer flood in, and old customers would also be lost quickly.
Sometimes public opinion plays a huge role.
At the same time, Shen Zhen also received resignation letters from many employees from his real estate company.
Although these employees were not the first group of pillars to come in, they have worked in the company for so long, and they have come into contact with the materials and information of the company.
Once they left, Shen Zhen lost more than just some employees.
Sitting in the office, Shen Zhen asked the employee opposite him: “Why do you have to leave? Is the salary not suitable? Or do you have other needs?”
Shen Zhen could say without a guilty conscience that he was good enough to his employees, even if Qin Yue wanted to poach people, it shouldn’t be so easy.
The employee sitting opposite Shen Zhen was a team leader. He had led a project and was considered a middle-level employee. There were quite a lot of commissions and bonuses in his position and plus the salary, if Qin Yue wanted to poach, it would be a lot of money.
The person probably also felt that what he was doing was not so decent, so he lowered his head and said cautiously, “Something happened at home…..”
“You don’t need to tell me these things.” Shen Zhen, “We all know how to speak pretty words.”
The person lowered his head, and finally said: “The salary quoted to me over there is 30% more than my original salary, and the staff dormitory arranged for me is in a high-end community…..”
That was enough.
Shen Zhen nodded: “I’ll approve the resignation letter for you.”
The person lowered his head in embarrassment and never looked at Shen Zhen once.
Shen Zhen didn’t bother quibbling with them either. After all, it was very common to poach people, as long as the other party could afford the price. As an employee, they may stay because of nostalgia, but it was normal to leave to pursue higher interests.
But Shen Zhen didn’t want to provide the same kind of treatment to the remaining employees because of this.
The salary, bonus and treatment he gave were already much higher than those of his peers in the industry.
If it was any higher, then it really became him who was the fool.
Li Xiaolin waited for the person to come out before walking into Shen Zhen’s office. Just as she was about to speak after putting down a document, Shen Zhen sighed: “Are you also here to resign?”
Li Xiaolin quickly shook her head: “I’m not resigning, why should I resign?”
Shen Zhen leaned back on the boss chair, while Li Xiaolin said angrily: “What kind of salary did they get outside before? After joining the company, as long as we did our job well, you awarded us bonuses without even a blink…..”
Shen Zhen smiled: “What’s to be angry over, people go to high places, and water flows to low places, they all want to climb up, it’s normal.”
Li Xiaolin: “But…..they know about our next project…..”
Shen Zhen: “It’s just some projects that have already been implemented. The next ones haven’t been approved yet. What’s the use if they just know the previous ones?”
Regarding important projects, Shen Zhen had done a good job of keeping confidentiality. All the upper management have signed confidentiality agreements. The contracts signed by these people were different from those below. These people were all brought here after Qin Xing’s greeting.
According to Qin Yue’s current net worth, it would cost a lot to poach them.
As long as the people above who make decisions and lead the general direction didn’t leave, and not more than half of the people below didn’t leave, then Shen Zhen didn’t care.
What needed to be resolved now was the matter of Qin Yue buying those press releases.
It was actually very difficult to find out the source of rumors. Even if Shen Zhen immediately sued and went to court, Qin Yue could still pay a sum of money to have someone take the blame for him, and this crime was actually not too serious, the other party could barely be imprisoned for a few years, and the fine wasn’t much either.
Shen Zhen looked through the various public platforms, but couldn’t find a press release yet.
Not knowing what Qin Yue’s script was like, he said to Li Xiaolin, “Call Feng Anyan and make an appointment for me to have dinner with him.”
Li Xiaolin nodded: “When is the time?”
Shen Zhen: “Tonight.”
Li Xiaolin was speechless: “Isn’t it too rushed?”
Shen Zhen: “He will agree, you can call him.”
Li Xiaolin nodded and went out to call Feng Anyan.
Sure enough, Feng Anyan readily agreed, and the two parties made an appointment at a western restaurant. Shen Zhen didn’t leave the company until after getting off work.
Qin Yue probably sent invitation letters to everyone in the company. Looking at the expressions of these people, Shen Zhen couldn’t help thinking, could Qin Yue really be able to take on so many people?
When the time comes, he better not shoot himself in the foot.
After all, the real estate company had not yet officially started to make profits, and so many people were practically supported by Shen Zhen with the money earned from his network information company. If there were fewer people, Shen Zhen’s pressure would actually be less.
When he arrived at the western restaurant, it was already dark. Someone was playing the piano on the stage in the western restaurant. After Shen Zhen reported Li Xiaolin’s name, he was led to a private room.
When Shen Zhen walked in, Feng Anyan was already sitting inside. Feng Anyan was no different from the last time they met, still smiling as ever. He had the face of a young master, but he had the aura of a crook clinging to his person.
“I thought you wouldn’t contact me.” Feng Anyan spread his hands exaggeratedly.
Shen Zhen smiled: “One never goes to the Buddhist temple for no reason. I have something to ask of you.”
Only then did Feng Anyan restrain his playfulness: “What’s the matter? Who is it related to? What benefits can I get?”
Shen Zhen: “Someone bought press releases and the media to discredit my company for leaking the personal information of our customers. Qin Yue and Su Shiqing are involved. The benefit you can get is that I will invest capital in you after June. Didn’t you want to come out and do it yourself recently?”
Feng Anyan clasped his hands: “Qin Yue, don’t you have a good relationship with him? He is this ruthless to you?”
“There are no permanent friends in the business world.” Shen Zhen sat down, ordered a steak and red wine, and then looked at Feng Anyan in a leisurely manner.
Feng Anyan: “How much can you invest in me?”
Shen Zhen gestured: “This number.”
Feng Anyan shook his head: “After all, you want to go head to head against Eldest Young Master Qin, this number is not very good.”
After all, it was capital injection, not bribery. If Feng Anyan’s business was good, he would naturally get dividends.
Shen Zhen gestured again: “Does this number work?”
Feng Anyan asked curiously: “Where do you get the money? Didn’t they say you haven’t sold the land yet?”
Shen Zhen sighed: “For this matter, it seems that I will have to sell a piece.”
Of course it would be sold at the highest peak price.
Feng Anyan: “Young Master Shen is paying an arm and a leg, have a drink?”
Shen Zhen raised his wine glass, clinked the glasses and took a sip.
“That’s right, I just discovered that besides Qin Yue, there is also Su Shiqing?” Feng Anyan sighed, “Recently, this name has been ringing in my ears, and it annoys me so much. I managed to escape his clutches with such difficulty last time.”
Feng Anyan: “It’s not because of him that you turned against Qin Yue, right?”
Shen Zhen didn’t deny or admit it, he chose not to answer.
Feng Anyan said with a smile: “I suddenly find this a little interesting. How about this, I’ll settle this matter for you, but I get to punish Qin Yue instead, is that okay?”
Shen Zhen looked up at him.
Feng Anyan shrugged and said, “I don’t like him, alright?”
Shen Zhen raised his eyebrows: “I didn’t say anything, it’s your freedom to do what you want, it has nothing to do with me.”
Feng Anyan: “Tsk tsk, the heart of a man is indeed vicious when they want to be.”
Shen Zhen: “Then wish us a happy cooperation.”
Feng Anyan raised his wine glass and clinked it with Shen Zhen.
If Qin Yue could hit a hard wall, it could be regarded as his accomplishment.
Feng Anyan was a person who lived endlessly to make trouble.
Feng Anyan suddenly asked: “I think if I compare with Su Shiqing, I’m much better than him, right?”
Shen Zhen almost spit out his sip of red wine. He didn’t know what evil had possessed Feng Anyan that he would want to compare himself with Su Shiqing.
Feng Anyan shrugged: “I’ve been chasing Chu Haoyi for so long, but it’s Su Shiqing who he can’t forget every day. Is Su Shiqing as fit as me, as handsome as me, as rich as me, and treat him as well as me?”
It was difficult for even an upright official to decide on family affairs. Shen Zhen could only express that he was powerless to help.
Speaking of which, it was a little inconceivable for Shen Zhen that Feng Anyan actually didn’t fall in love with Su Shiqing.
After all, in the book, Feng Anyan was no less loyal than Chu Haoyi.
Shen Zhen rested his chin and thought carefully.
Since he was reborn, those who loved Su Shiqing in the previous life still love him, and those who hated Su Shiqing still hate him.
Only Feng Anyan was an exception.
Was there anything unusual about Feng Anyan?
Was he also reborn?
Shen Zhen involuntarily looked at Feng Anyan.
Feng Anyan noticed Shen Zhen staring at him. He touched his face and asked shamelessly: “What? Suddenly found that I’m very handsome? Don’t fall in love with me, I’m only interested in Chu Haoyi now. “
Shen Zhen: “…..You think too much.”
Feng Anyan laughed: “We can also be considered as mutually benefitting and mutually assisting, don’t be so cruel, so what about admitting to my charm?”
Shen Zhen: “Nothing much.”
Feng Anyan: “I have to use my family’s resources to help you smooth things out this time. It’s not too much to flatter me with a few nice words, right?”
Shen Zhen smiled: “Fine, you are better than Su Shiqing, are you happy?”
Feng Anyan didn’t speak for several seconds. After a while he said: “Although I asked for it myself, why do I feel that you are scolding me?”
Shen Zhen cut off a piece of steak, put it in his mouth, and chewed slowly before saying, “You also know that you asked for it.”
Feng Anyan sighed: “Anyway, if it has something to do with this person, there must be nothing good. But since I agreed, you don’t have to worry. I don’t believe that if I made my attitude known, there would still be media who dare to post it.”
After all, Feng Anyan’s family went ashore after whitewashing, and what they did now was in the entertainment industry. They also have a lot of entertainment media under their control. They could be regarded as leading figures in the industry. As long as Feng Anyan spoke, few media outlets had the guts to publish the rumor-making releases that Qin Yue asked them to publish.
Even if some fish slipped through the net, there would be no big troubles, and they would delete it as soon as they got the lawyer’s letter.
Of course, he couldn’t control the government media, but if he couldn’t even control, then naturally Qin Yue had no such ability.
After the two of them had dinner, they went back to their respective homes. Although Feng Anyan acted like a playboy, he always did what he promised.
At least that was how he was in the book.
Shen Zhen didn’t want to let Qin Yue fulfill his wish. Although the network information company didn’t earn a lot, and he didn’t care about it going bankrupt, he couldn’t accept that it was as a result of Qin Yue.
Now that he had decided to confront him, Qin Yue must also be prepared to bear the consequences.
Shen Zhen glanced at his phone.
The information collected by Li Xiaolin had been made into a PDF and sent over.
It had the name of the legal person of Qin Yue’s registered company, as well as their recent projects and the cooperative companies they contacted.
The corner of Shen Zhen’s mouth hooked upwards.
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 Yue used money to poach people from him, so of course he could also use money to buy information on the other.
Since he wanted to play games, of course the stakes had to be bigger for it to be interesting.
If it was just a small schoolyard fight, why bother to spend that time and waste that energy?
