Liu Huan’s pursuit caught Shen Zhen off guard.

“CEO Shen, someone delivered this in the morning.” Li Xiaolin opened the envelope at Shen Zhen’s gesture, and inside was a VIP ticket for a concert, with the venue, time and the name of the band written on it.

Li Xiaolin was taken aback when she saw it, did CEO Shen have a suitor?

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 )

Shen Zhen said to Li Xiaolin with a headache: “Put it there for now.”

Li Xiaolin put the ticket on the desk.

Shen Zhen called Liu Huan.

The only person he could think of who would give this kind of thing was Liu Huan.

If Qin Xing wanted to take him to a concert, he would bring it up when they were together, instead of sending it directly to his company.

“Why did you suddenly think of calling me? Missed me?” Shen Zhen sighed speechlessly at Liu Huan’s opening remark.

Shen Zhen said in a steady tone: “Mr. Liu, I received a concert ticket.”

Liu Huan: “Oh, that, I booked it some time ago, there is no one to accompany me so I just sent it to you. If you are interested, go, if you aren’t, don’t worry, the ticket is already yours, you can use it yourself or give it away.”

What Shen Zhen was about to say was blocked in his throat.

Liu Huan’s words having been said like this, if he still said “I have a lover, and I have no interest in you”, it would seem as if he was very narcissistic, so he could only swallow it back.

What should be said had already been said in the last meeting, so Shen Zhen replied: “I am not interested in the concert, I’ll give that ticket to someone else.”

Liu Huan: “It’s up to you, no need to inform me, what I give you is yours, it has nothing to do with me anymore, no matter what I give you in the future, I will always say this.”

Liu Huan: “In any case, let’s talk later, I still have something to take care of.”

Shen Zhen: “…..”

After hanging up the call, Shen Zhen gave the ticket to Li Xiaolin: “There is only one ticket, you can go see it yourself or give it to a friend.”

Li Xiaolin held the ticket in her hand, with a dazed expression on her face——she had no artistic affinity at all, she could even fall asleep watching a musical play, let alone a music concert.”

Not to mention art movies, she would basically fall asleep like a dead pig within ten minutes of the opening. She could only watch action movies and comedy movies with gusto.

“Can I sell it?” Li Xiaolin asked cautiously.

Shen Zhen: “You can do whatever you want with it, don’t ask me.”

The smile on Li Xiaolin’s face widened.

Shen Zhen: “There isn’t anything important to take care of in the company today, is there?”

Li Xiaolin: “No, the following projects are going well, much smoother than expected.”

Shen Zhen breathed a sigh of relief: “Has the land money been transferred?”

Li Xiaolin: “After the transfer, the tax has been deducted, and the company has finally started to make a profit.”

The taxes on the real estate industry was high, but the profits were also huge. Seeing that the income had shrunk a lot, Shen Zhen didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Li Xiaolin suddenly said, “CEO Shen, it’s time for you to change your car. You should also get a Maybach.”

Shen Zhen also felt that he could buy a new car. He only had a motorcycle, and the cars he used to go in and out were all Qin Xing’s.

Now that he had the money, he really should buy a new one.

Shen Zhen: “You’re right.”

It was convenient to buy a car, just choose the brand and model, and then go pick up the car when the time came.

Li Xiaolin asked again: “If you have a car, you need a driver, right?”

Shen Zhen: “…..”

Why did he feel like buying a car was such a waste?

Although he had a lot of money in his hand, he still felt an inexplicable heartache.

This was probably because he personally experienced the hard work in making money himself?

“Okay.” Shen Zhen said, “Go and post the hire notice.”

Li Xiaolin: “Is there any request?”

Shen Zhen: “Don’t talk too much, don’t be too curious, adhere to traffic rules, don’t speed, don’t drink and drive, don’t drive tired, anyway, I don’t want a driver who had a car accident experience.”

Shen Zhen’s request was not too much, and Li Xiaolin nodded in agreement.

After getting off work, Shen Zhen left with Shen Li and had a meal together in a restaurant outside for once.

Qin Xing had gone back to the Qin family manor today, and there was no one to cook at home. Shen Zhen found it troublesome, so he went outside to solve the problem.

Shen Li was different from his usual chatterbox personality today, instead he was a little silent. He opened and closed his mouth to say something several times while looking at Shen Zhen, looking very hesitant to speak.

“The last time you went back with Shen Mu, why did you come back here again and didn’t stay at the Shen’s?” Shen Zhen asked suddenly, his tone very natural, just like a normal chat between friends, blurting out a question naturally, without any deliberate expression.

Shen Li was a little depressed: “He lied to me again.”

Shen Zhen: “Oh?”

Shen Li picked up a piece of vegetable with his chopsticks and put it in his bowl, but he didn’t move to eat it for a long time. He fiddled with the poor little green vegetable with his chopsticks, and said in a muffled voice, “Dad scolded me again.”

Shen Zhen could think of Shen Fu’s expression at that time. Shen Fu thought that as long as he drove his sons out, the three sons would naturally unite after knowing that life outside was difficult. But as a result, the three sons lived their own lives and when they finally thought of going back, only two went back, and these two didn’t even care about the one outside.

Shen Zhen felt that if he were Shen Fu, he would faint from anger on the spot.

After spending so many years cultivating his sons, none of them turned out useful.

Shen Li suddenly raised his head and asked Shen Zhen: “Big Brother, do you also think I’m stupid?”

Shen Zhen didn’t speak, just looked at Shen Li.

Shen Li poked at his rice: “I know you all think so, whether it’s Dad, you, or Second and Third Brother, you all think I’m stupid and think that I can’t live without the Shen family. When I was in school, my classmates were also the same. On the surface they played well with me, but behind my back they say that I am stupid and rich, an idiot with a lot of money, someone who is easy to deceive.”

As Shen Li spoke, his voice became a little nasally: “I know it all in my heart, but I don’t show it, because it’s useless even if I did, and it’s not like I can become as smart as they hoped anyway.”

“Since I was a child, I have heard them say that you are very smart, that you were sent to the Qin family at such a young age, and that you even had such a good relationship with Eldest Young Master Qin.”

“I thought at the time, if it was me who was sent, would I be the one who they praise?”

“But I know now.” Shen Li sniffed, tears falling into his rice bowl, “I will never become smarter.”

“But I always felt that even if Second and Third Brother temporarily treat me badly, they wouldn’t lie to me.”

Shen Zhen: “Shen Mu lied to you?”

Shen Li nodded: “He asked me to ask Dad for some money, because I am the youngest son, and Dad might be soft-hearted towards me, so I asked Dad for it, and Dad gave me 200,000 and told me to use it sparingly.”

Sure enough, Shen Fu was also not able to let go of his worries about this stupid son.

Shen Li said again: “Then Shen Mu asked me to borrow 20,000 yuan, and I borrowed it. He asked me to give him the card, and he’ll take it to transfer the money, and I also gave it.”

“I just found out yesterday that he transferred all the money away.”

Shen Li couldn’t control his emotions: “I’m not angry about the two hundred thousand yuan. I used to pay more than two hundred thousand for a sports car before, and more than two hundred thousand for a friend’s birthday gift. But I, I just feel uncomfortable, I feel upset.”

Shen Li choked up and said: “I called him, and I asked him if he had typed an extra zero when transferring the money, and he laughed at me, saying that I was always so stupid since I was a child, and I still haven’t changed a bit after growing up.”

“He also said that people like me should stay at home honestly in the future, and don’t go out to embarrass the family.”

Shen Li looked up at Shen Zhen, and found that Shen Zhen was looking at him intently.

Shen Li took the napkin next to him and wiped his face dry: “You dealt with that Su Shiqing before, right? Is he really better than me?”

Looking at Shen Li’s pitiful puppy-like eyes, Shen Zhen could only say: “He… don’t have to compare with him.”

Shen Li: “I just can’t figure it out.”

Shen Zhen looked at Shen Li and felt that a person like Shen Li had truly never grown up. Or maybe he had grown up a long time ago, but he just didn’t want to face the reality, buried his head like an ostrich, and pretended that he didn’t know anything.

Living like this was sometimes quite tiring.

Shen Li said: “I used to think that they came to find me because they still cared about our sibling relationship, because I am their younger brother, but now I find that’s not the case. It’s just because I still have money in my hands, and I’m still worth using.”

Shen Zhen suddenly asked: “If the two hundred thousand yuan is in Shen Mu’s hands, then what about Shen Yun?”

Shen Li was taken aback for a moment, and also panicked: “I don’t know…..”

“I don’t even know where Second Brother is.” Shen Li stood up from the chair. He couldn’t eat anymore, his mind went blank. In truth, he knew Shen Mu, and knew how selfish Shen Mu was. And as for where Shen Yun was, what Shen Yun was doing, Shen Mu didn’t reveal a single word.

Shen Zhen: “Don’t worry.”

Then Shen Zhen waved to the waiter to pay the bill.

“Do you know where Shen Mu lived before?” Shen Zhen asked.

Shen Li gradually calmed down: “I know.”

Shen Zhen: “Then let’s go there first.”

Shen Zhen had no good intentions and didn’t want to save Shen Yun, he just wanted to see what Shen Yun looked like now.

Shen Yun, who stood arrogantly in front of him in his previous life, how was he doing now?

Shen Zhen and Shen Li soon arrived at the part of the city where Shen Yun and Shen Mu were living in to save expenses. Most of the people living here were migrant workers, and the dwellings were very simple, makeshift single rooms constructed with a few boards, with a bed and a door. It was so small that it couldn’t even fit a table, and the place was full of various odors.

These kinds of wooden partition rooms could neither block out sound or odor.

When Shen Zhen walked through this floor, he could hear the “creaking” sound of the wooden boards.

Shen Li walked beside Shen Zhen. It was the second time for Shen Li to come here, but he still couldn’t stand the environment here. He felt as if he had nowhere to place his feet, and felt that everything was dirty.

Shen Zhen, on the other hand, looked very natural and unbothered.

“Big Brother, aren’t you afraid of getting dirty?” Shen Li asked curiously.

Shen Zhen: “It’s only the shoes that will get dirty. Don’t your shoes get dirty when you walk outside?”

Shen Li: “…..That seems to make sense.”

They stopped in front of a security door that looked like a residence, and Shen Li pressed the doorbell.

“Who is it!” Someone yelled inside.

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 )

Shen Li: “We came to find someone!”

The people inside were very vigilant: “Who are you looking for?!”

Shen Li: “Shen Yun in Room 3!”

Then someone came to open the door for them.
