After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 249 Hiring Thugs & To Escape

“I know that you are the real second son of the Shen family!” The situation was urgent, and when Lin Rong’an faced Tao Mu, he was less hypocritically roundabout than he used to greet Tao Mu and went straight to the point: “Although I don’t know why you are so reluctant to recognize the Shen family. But if you don’t want this secret to be exposed, it’s best not to press the Lin family any further.”

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 )

Speaking of which, the reason why Lin Rong’an concealed this matter at the beginning was not only to watch the fun, but also partly because of the Lin family. After all, with the Shen family’s mercenary nature, once Tao Mu’s true identity was known, Shen Yu, who had always had a feud with Tao Mu, would become useless. The Shen family would definitely give up Shen Yu in order to please Tao Mu. In this way, the effort the Lin family spent on Shen Yu would be in vain.

Although Lin Rong’an was disqualified as the heir by the Lin family, he was still a member of the Lin family after all. Besides, the Lin family also needed him to maintain their relationship with Shen Yu.

But what Lin Rong’an didn’t expect was that Tao Mu’s methods were this ruthless. In the end, this secret turned out to be the life-saving charm of their Lin family.

Lin Rong’an saw this incident as a life-saving straw, but Tao Mu didn’t care.

“Do whatever you want.” Tao Mu lacked interest. If Tao Mu still had a headache on how to face the Shen family before reaching a tacit agreement with Shen Chen, then after that conversation, Tao Mu was sure that Shen Chen would definitely help him solve the potential trouble of the Shen family. After all, Tao Mu had the memories of his previous life, and he knew everything about the behavior of the Shen family and even the filth within the Shen Group. So Tao Mu was not worried that the Shen family would take advantage of him. If he was really pushed, Tao Mu also had some means to deal with the Shen Group. But Shen Chen definitely didn’t want to see a person who was as ambitious and shrewd as him and who also possess the blood of the Shen family return back to the Shen family to fight for the inheritance with him.

Lin Rong’an didn’t know that Tao Mu and Shen Chen had come to a tacit agreement. Seeing Tao Mu’s fearless appearance, Lin Rong’an came to a realization, and sneered self-righteously: “I understand. As expected of Mr. Tao, your methods are indeed superb. The spread of the news on the Internet that Yu Qingqing abandoned the child in the rented house in Beijing must have been instructed by you, right? No wonder what happened nineteen years ago was easily revealed. You wanted to go back to the Shen family from the very beginning. But this plan was only accidentally destroyed by Shen Yu.”

The more Lin Rong’an spoke, the more he felt that this was the truth: “…..No wonder, no wonder you attacked the Lin family for no reason. You must be angry with me and Shen Yu for sabotaging your plan, right?”

Tao Mu looked at Lin Rong’an with an expression of one caring for the mentally retarded. These admirers of Shen Yu all have one characteristic, that was, they especially liked to imagine up plots and details. And they would also take their own stories as facts, and would never accept anyone’s refutation.

Tao Mu had become accustomed to this in his previous life, and he was too lazy to explain in this life. He just called the hotel security directly to kick the person out.

The Lin Group’s stock price had fallen to the bottom, and the three most active men of the Lin family were all facing jail time. The hotel also followed in beating the underdog and unceremoniously threw Lin Rong’an, who seemed to have gone crazy, out of the hotel.

Lin Rong’an was held by two security guards, and still struggling, he shouted loudly, “I won’t let you have your way…..I’ll make you pay…..”

“How is it, have you seen Tao Mu? What did that kid say?” After Lin Rong’an returned to the Lin family manor, he was surrounded by everyone in the Lin family.

However, seeing Lin Rong’an’s soulless and disheveled appearance, in fact, everyone already guessed the result.

“I’ve already said that this Tao Mu has a wide network of contacts in the mainland and has a deep friendship with CEO Li of Xiaoheng Capital. Our Lin family should not offend such a person easily. But you just don’t listen to me. Like being possessed, for a thing like Shen Yu you oppose Tao Mu everywhere. And even use the influence of the Lin family in Hong Kong to put pressure on the Golden Crow Award…..”

The uncle of the Lin family was full of complaints: “Now great, as soon as he took action, the entire Lin Group is soon to go bankrupt. The three of us are also accused of raping minors. The Lin family’s face has been disgraced, and we face jail time. You must be satisfied now!”

The uncle of the Lin family had always been against the old madam Lin’s decision to bring Shen Yu to the Lin family. However, old madam Lin had always been assertive in the Lin family. Although Uncle Lin was the CEO of the Lin Group, his voice within the group was not as high as old madam Lin’s. Therefore, his words spoken at home did not have as much weight as old madam Lin’s. In addition, old madam Lin had always been partial to her second son. In order to keep his position within the group, the eldest uncle of the Lin family did not dare to go against the old madam’s decisions too much. In order to avoid the old madam’s anger, he really supported his younger brother.

The mother and son have always had some grudges because of their interests. It was just that the Lin family was full of prosperity before, and these contradictions were hidden under a peaceful atmosphere. Now that the Lin family skyscraper was about to collapse, it was natural for him to be unable to hold back.

“That’s right. How old are you already, old madam? Why can’t you be like the old madams in other families, and take care of your grandchildren and enjoy your old age? You have to get involved in the affairs of the group. I’m not just saying this, but you have really become senile from old age. Now it is not like when you were young, and the old gentleman is still here and our Lin family calls the shots in Hong Kong. Don’t even mention the Lin family, do you even see who dares to be domineering now?” The eldest aunt of the Lin family also spoke for her husband. Although the eldest uncle of the Lin family made her uncomfortable by spending a lot of time dallying outside, this was the case with men who were rich. Compared with her man spending his time outside, eldest aunt Lin didn’t want her husband to go to jail even more.

Thinking of this, the aunt of the Lin family began to complain about Lin Rong’an again——it was this nephew who brought down the men of the Lin family. According to her, Lin Rong’an was the one who should go to jail the most. He organized those parties and provided the drugs. So what was he doing dragging others down with him.

Not only the aunt of the Lin family, but also many of the younger generation of the Lin family thought this way. If it wasn’t because the old madam and Rong An were always going against Tao Mu everywhere, Tao Mu would not have sniped the Lin Group in the stock market. In the endl, it was the fault of the old madam and Lin Rong’an.

The group’s stock price fell to the bottom and was on the verge of bankruptcy. The Lin family’s century-old family business was wiped out, and her two sons and favorite grandson were about to face jail time. Old madam Lin was also resented by her other grandchildren. For a while there she couldn’t hold on anymore and passed out while clutching at her chest.

The Lin family mansion was in chaos again. Lin Rong’an stared expressionlessly at the chaos in front of him and returned to his room.

That the Lin family had become like this, that he had become like this, all of this was Tao Mu’s fault. Even if Lin Rong’an was going to go to jail, he would not let Tao Mu off so easily!

Knowing that the third son of the Lin family had bought a ruthless underworld thug to cause a car accident and try to kill Tao Mu, Liang Shuwen, who had been busy expanding his family’s express delivery business, still personally visited the hotel where Tao Mu was temporarily staying to report the news.

The Liang family was a member of the underworld, and their underworld contacts were the most well-informed. What was more, the Liang family was now relying on Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng, the two gods of wealth, to make money. So now that they had the opportunity to show their goodwill, of course they would not let this opportunity go.

Old Mr. Liang even patted his chest and assured: “Mr. Tao, don’t worry, as long as it is in the boundary of Hong Kong, our Liang family will never let you have an accident.”

Tao Mu smiled and thanked him. He glanced at Liang Shuwen who was sitting beside him. Although in his previous life, he had never dealt with this person very much, this time Liang Shuwen’s tip-off was of great importance to Tao Mu’s life and safety. So even if to repay the favor, Toa Mu must also warn the other.

“Old Mr. Liang wants to whitewash, this decision is naturally correct. What era is it after all, isn’t it better for everyone to make money with peace of mind than to shout and kill every day. But while old Mr. Liang is dedicated to walking this bright path, I wonder what those seniors in your gang think?”

Old Mr. Liang knew that people like Tao Mu who lawfully did business always kept a distance from people with complicated backgrounds like them. Old Mr. Liang could also understand Tao Mu’s concerns, and immediately smiled: “Actually, those like us who come out in society, it is just to support the family. Mr. Tao grew up in the mainland, and probably don’t know that a few decades ago, Hong Kong was actually very chaotic. To put it a bit exaggeratedly, even if you set up a small stall on the side of the road to sell boxed lunches, you wouldn’t be able to do business peacefully if you don’t make offerings to a pier. But the world is different now. If one can make money with peace of mind, who would want to go back to the days of licking blood off of knives.”

“That’s right.” Tao Mu smiled and added jokingly: “I watched some Hong Kong movies before. I found a phenomenon that was particularly interesting. Before writing a character to death, the screenwriter would definitely have him say something. For example, after completing this job, I will go back to my hometown and get married. We call this kind of plot ‘raising a flag’ in the industry. Because after the protagonist finishes saying this, there will definitely be enemies coming to the door. “

Old Mr. Liang’s heart skipped a beat.

Tao Mu only hinted enough. He smiled and said, “The topic has gone too far away. I wonder if the old gentleman has any solid evidence that Lin Rong’an hired a murderer to kill?”

Liang Shuwen began thoughtfully: “Mr. Tao means…..”

“I’m a person who cherishes my life. Of course, I can’t allow those who want to harm me to go unpunished.” Tao Mu smiled, as if he was talking about the weather.

The Liang family father and son looked at each other with difficulty. Although the Liang family wanted to whitewash themselves, they were still part of the underworld after all. Knowing that someone wanted to assassinate Tao Mu and running over to tip off the news, and handing over the evidence that the murderer was bribed to Tao Mu were two different things. The latter would certainly arouse criticism from some gang members.

Tao Mu smiled but said nothing. He also didn’t urge the Liang family father and son. The father and son of the Liang family were willing to come to tip off the news, and Tao Mu recognized this favor. Therefore, according to the memory of his previous life, he would warn them in advance and return the favor. If the father and son of the Liang family were willing to help him bring Lin Rong’an and the hired killer to justice, Tao Mu, in order to repay the kindness of the Liang family, would of course tell old Mr. Liang about the group of people who kidnapped Liang Shuwen in his previous life. Calculating the time, that incident would occur this year.

Tao Mu had his own principles in life. Tao Mu and Liang Shuwen were destined not to be friends because of their relationship in the previous life. But in this life, the Liang family had shown favor to him several times, and Tao Mu had received the kindness of the Liang family. So he should at least express his thanks. Therefore, this kind of case by case transaction was more in line with Tao Mu’s principle of doing things.

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 )

As for whether Tao Mu tipping off old Mr. Liang would attract the anger of that group of people, Tao Mu was not worried. Just like what Tao Mu said to old Mr. Liang, what era was it now, shouting and killing on the streets was no longer feasible. Putting aside whether the mafia in Hong Kong dared to attack a mainland businessman like Tao Mu, even if they really dared to do it, the veteran soldier security team hired by with high salaries was not just for show.

The Liang family father and son struggled for a while, and finally decided to cooperate with Tao Mu. However, when Tao Mu handed over the evidence that Lin Rong’an hired a murderer to the Hong Kong police, and the Hong Kong police went to the Lin family to arrest him, he was surprised to find that Lin Rong’an had already escaped.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 248 To Snipe

That it didn’t take long for Yu Qingqing’s identity to be exposed to make such a big move, the point of the sword directly aimed at Yu Qingqing’s family company, and public opinion also guided to to attack the company’s reputation. All the while selling short in the stock market, eroding from the industrial side step by step, and pressing aggressively on the bank and channel supply. To be able to do this in just one month, Mrs. Shen, who remained at home all year round, had absolutely no such means.

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 )

So far, the intentions of the Shen Group might not be known to passers-by, but at least those with discerning eyes could see it. For a time, the Shenzhen market was highly vigilant, and the well-known Shenzhen entrepreneurs met one after another, observing the situation while remaining on guard. They didn’t know how much waves the dragon crossing the river which was the Shen Group would stir up.

Compared with the focus of the businessmen in Shenzhen, most netizens who eat melons were more concerned about the news that Tao Mu had no win at the Golden Crow Awards ceremony.

Tao Mu’s acting skills were obvious to all netizens who have watched “The Great Wall of Flesh and Blood” and the movie “Black and White”, and even the pirated version of “Black and White”. Under this circumstance, if Tao Mu regrettably lost in the competition for the Best Supporting Actor award, it would be considered a defeat that still had glory. After all, in the entertainment industry, at the age of 19, there were very few male actors who could be nominated for Best Supporting Actor on their debut movie. It could be said that this nomination itself was a respect for Tao Mu’s acting skills.

In addition, the old gentleman who finally won the Best Supporting Actor Award had inspired the nostalgia of netizens when he gave his speech. Even the most protective Tao Mu fans have no complaints about this result.

But one thing was one thing, the Golden Crow Awards awarded the Best Supporting Actor Award to others and no one questioned it. But you want to say that with Tao Mu’s strength, even the Best Newcomer Award would be lost to someone like Shen Yu, wasn’t that too much?

Counting all the fans who have seen the movie one by one, who didn’t know Shen Yu’s acting ability? Don’t mention competing with Tao Mu, a dark horse who could even compete with film kings, or even crush them, even if he was compared with other small supporting actors in the crew——such as the Hong Kong actor who played Ah Ze, the gap had to be ten stories high.

It would be understandable if the Golden Crow Awards did not award Tao Mu the Best Newcomer Award because Tao Mu also had a nomination for Best Supporting Actor. But now Tao Mu had neither won the Best Newcomer Award nor the Best Supporting Actor Award. Such good acting was not even able to gain a single trophy, yet the Golden Crow Award awarded the Best Newcomer Award to Shen Yu, whose acting was so bad that one was reluctant to even nominate him for the Best Newcomer Award. The quality of this award was too much!

On the day of the award ceremony, Tao Mu’s fans and netizens who were concerned about the Golden Crow Awards launched into a wave of complaints online. A large number of people flocked to the entertainment sections of major social platforms, and the Flynews account of the Golden Crow Awards to raise their questions. Some stubborn industry insiders also secretly and implicitly connoted that the Golden Crow Award was unfair and was deeply influenced by capital.

It continued to the next morning, when all the mainland media also expressed their dissatisfaction. They believed that the actions of the Golden Crow Awards was obviously suspected of discriminating against mainland actors. Especially the old leaders of SARFT who were particularly protective, now they were full of complaints——you don’t support the seedlings that we are optimistic about, but you actually awarded the award to a person who has problems with moral quality and professionalism blocked by the mainland. This shows what? Doesn’t this show the obvious suppression of newcomers with potential from our mainland by the performing arts industry in Hong Kong?

The chairman of the Lingxiao Award jury even publicly stated during the interview that the Hong Kong Golden Crow Award was too deeply influenced by capital operations and had completely lost its authority. This was very disappointing indeed.

Hearing the words of the chairman of the Lingxiao Award jury, the Golden Crow Award jury chairman practically had a mouthful of blood stuck in his chest and couldn’t be spit out. For a long time, the authority of major domestic film and television awards had often been questioned by the outside world. Whether it was a film and television person in Hong Kong or a film and television person in Taiwan, what they liked to criticize most was that the mainland film and television awards were too deeply influenced by politics and do not have market authority. Now the remarks that they have always spouted were now returned back to them by others. The chairman of the Golden Crow Awards jury could barely hold back the upset and almost suffered from internal injuries.

After the official statement came first, many big-name artists and well-respected actors and veteran artists in the mainland also came forward to express their dissatisfaction. The competition between the entertainment industry in Hong Kong and Taiwan and the mainland entertainment industry had always been fierce, not to mention the conflict between the two parties. It was not uncommon for news reports that the production crew and actors from Hong Kong and Taiwan teamed up to bully mainland artists. The grievances between the two sides were too deep, and now there was a chance to step on their opponent, no one would let this opportunity go.

Although Hong Kong artists were dissatisfied with the mainland artists throwing stones down at them, the flashy operation of the Golden Crow Awards this time was too low-end, and the traces of capital control were too obvious. Although everyone knew that the organizer of the Golden Crow Award had no choice but to do so, no industry insiders have come forward to defend the Golden Crow Award. On the one hand, they were afraid of provoking trouble, and on the other hand, of course, they did not want to offend Tao Mu.

After all, Tao Mu was not only a dark horse actor that people in the industry were optimistic about, but also the founder of, a senior partner of Xiaoheng Capital, and a top level producer and film investor who had been widely sought after by the industry in the past two years.

They dared not to offend Tao Mu, nor complain that the Golden Crow Award was being manipulated by capital, so as not to inexplicably offend the Lin family, so the Hong Kong artists who were implicated in this wave of criticism for no reason could only take their anger out on Shen Yu, who had the cheek to win the Best Newcomer Award. They all angrily waited for Shen Yu to be truly finished.

Shen Yu, who was missed by many people, was detained in a detention center in Beijing.

After nearly 20 years of pampering and being held in the palm of the Shen family’s hand, Shen Yu had barely even lived in a school dormitory for a few days, let alone a detention center. Even when he was at his most desolate, when he was kicked out of the house by the Shen family, and even driven to Hong Kong, he had the Lin family as his backing. When had Shen Yu suffered such setbacks? Ever since he entered the detention center, he had been crying at his grievances. The sound of crying was so loud that people’s heads nearly exploded.

In the detention center, there were all kinds of people from all walks of life. Moreover, there were many hooligans who were repeat offenders. They just felt annoyed when they heard Shen Yu’s crying.

“Can’t you f**king stop crying? Your crying is going to make my head explode!” A bald man with blue dragons and white tigers tattooed all over his body couldn’t bear it anymore, he suddenly got up from the bed and walked to Shen Yu, grabbed Shen Yu’s collar and said viciously, “Suck it up right now.”

Shen Yu had never seen such a mean looking person before, and his face turned pale with fright and began to cry louder. Even some snot dripped onto the bald man’s hand.

“F**k!” The bald man was so disgusted, he threw off Shen Yu’s collar, rubbed the snot on Shen Yu’s clothes, and kicked Shen Yu angrily: “Did you f**king do that on purpose?”

“It hurts!” Shen Yu shouted desperately, clutching his stomach, “Help! Help! Stop beating!”

Hearing the commotion in the detention room, the police immediately ran over. The bald man saw that the situation was not good, and quickly returned to his bed to squat.

“What is going on?”

Everyone squatted in the corner holding their heads and looked at each other, but no one said a word.

Only Shen Yu hugged his stomach and cried in pain, his face pale, crying and complaining to the police, saying that the bald man beat him. The bald-headed man didn’t expect that Shen Yu would dare to tell on him, and glared at Shen Yu fiercely. The police who saw this began to reprimand and educate him.

Seeing that Shen Yu was in severe pain, the police even called a doctor for Shen Yu. After examining him over, the doctor said that Shen Yu was only injured on the skin level, and it was not serious. The reason why Shen Yu cried so hard was probably because he had never been injured before, and his tolerance for pain was too low.

Thinking of the news reported before his ban that Shen Yu could cry for days just over having to hang on a wire, the police were speechless. They could only send Shen Yu back, and warned the bald man not to beat others again. However, the police could only control the detention room. Back in the detention room and huddled in the corner, Shen Yu, whose crying eyes were swollen red, didn’t know that once he left the detention center, everything that would happen to him would truly be more miserable than now…..

Tao Mu’s first reaction when he learned that Shen Yu was blocked in a small alley and had his leg broken after leaving the detention center was that this was definitely the work of the Shen family. However, after investigation, he was stunned to find that this matter had nothing to do with the Shen family. It turned out to be just a personal grievance between Shen Yu and a small-time hooligan who often got into fights and caused trouble in the detention center.

What Tao Mu didn’t know was that after learning that Shen Yu was going to be detained, Mrs. Shen indeed really wanted to do something in order to dispel the hatred of the Shen family who raised a cuckoo that occupied the nest well, while their precious son was irresponsibly discarded by Yu Qingqing. However, she was stopped by Shen Shiyuan and Shen Chen. The reason was also very simple. The Shen Group was now on the cusp of acquiring Yu Qingqing’s family’s company, and hundreds of pairs of eyes were staring at them. Once something was done, it would definitely attract the attention of those who care.

Therefore, the father and son of the Shen family must not allow Mrs. Shen to do stupid things to harm the Shen family. Not only was she unable to do things, but when they learned that Shen Yu’s leg was broken, Shen Shiyuan even flew to Beijing to visit Shen Yu himself. He claimed that though Yu Qingqing’s actions were shameless and low-level, Shen Yu was the child they raised for 19 years after all. These were just high-sounding lies, but Shen Yu was deeply moved. Confirming once again that his family was really only the Shen family.

In contrast, Yu Qingqing’s actions of abandoning Second Young Master Shen made Shen Yu feel more guilty. At the same time, he also vowed in his heart that he must help the Shen family find the real second son of the Shen family to make up for his mother’s sins.

Shen Yu felt that the reason why Mrs. Shen held grudges against him was because the second son of the Shen family’s whereabouts were unknown. If he could find Second Young Master Shen back, Mrs. Shen would definitely forgive him. At that time, he could also return to the Shen family with dignity and become the adopted son of the Shen family.

Having come to this point, Shen Yu did not dare to expect too much anymore. He didn’t even dare to think carefully about whether the attitude of the Shen family’s father and son pair towards him was really out of familial affection. He regarded the Shen family as his last life saving rope. If the Shen family didn’t care about him, Shen Yu really didn’t know where else he could be accepted.

However, it was not so easy for Shen Yu to help the Shen family find the real Second Young Master Shen. After all, even with the resources and connections of the Shen family, there was no news after so long. Moreover, Shen Yu didn’t have any connections now.

In fact, according to the clues given by those incidents back then, Tao Mu, a person who had already stayed out of the matter, was actually the most suitable match to Second Young Master Shen’s experience. But Shen Yu personally compared Tao Mu’s DNA with the Shen family’s DNA, and even paid a heavy price for it——

No, wait! In a flash of insight, Shen Yu stumbled upon a thought. He wasn’t actually sure about this. Everything was arranged by Lin Rong’an. If Lin Rong’an swapped the test samples, or gave him a fake identification report…..

Just when Shen Yu began to doubt whether the DNA report Lin Rong’an gave him was true or false, Tao Mu was also busy sniping at the Lin Group in the stock market.

——A tiger was always regarded as a sick cat if it didn’t show its power. Although Tao Mu didn’t care much about the Golden Crow Award trophies, Tao Mu didn’t like being suppressed for no reason. Since the Lin family dared to use their wealth to make trouble for him, Tao Mu couldn’t let the Lin family be disappointed.

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 )

With knowledge of the gossip reports from his previous life, Tao Mu exposed many scandals within the Lin family one by one. Coupled with Li Xiaoheng’s personal manipulation of the stocks, the Lin Group’s stock price dropped by dozens of percentage points within a few days, and the group’s market value evaporated by hundreds of thousands of millions. And Lin Rong’an, his father and his uncle were also facing serious charges of raping minors.

At this critical juncture, Lin Rong’an, who could no longer keep his composure, took the initiative to find Tao Mu expressing that a transaction could be made.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 247 The Oriole In The Back

This mother and son pair were causing too much of a scene, and the organizers of the Golden Crow Awards were worried that if the scene continued, it would affect the process of the awards ceremony, so they had to signal to the staff to invite Yu Qingqing and Shen Yu off the red carpet.

The onlooking media reporters and fans who eat melon made a regretful “tsk tsk” sound. Even the guests who attended the ceremony put away their mobile phones regretfully. When Shen Yu walked into the hall, a large group of people subtly observed. Even if Shen Yu was preoccupied, he could still feel that the whole hall was secretly looking at him, and some people were also whispering, probably talking about him and Yu Qingqing. Shen Yu felt incredibly embarrassed. He didn’t want to have such an irresponsible mother.

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 )

At eight o’clock in the evening, the awards ceremony officially began. The group of stars who secretly gossiped just now instantly focused their attention. No matter how delicious the melons were today, that was someone else’s business. But the promulgation of various awards may involve their vital interests. Under such circumstances, fewer and fewer people paid attention to Shen Yu. Most people had their eyes on the stage. Shen Yu, who was sitting with the “Black and White” crew, finally breathed a sigh of relief.

He subconsciously looked at Tao Mu. When he secretly stole Tao Mu’s hair for DNA identification, he originally wanted to help Tao Mu find his biological parents. At that time, he was also secretly looking forward to it, since Tao Mu’s biological parents could abandon him in a rental house, they would definitely not really love him. Once they learned that Tao Mu was now famous and rich, they might even come over and ask for money. Shen Yu admitted that he was jealous of Tao Mu. He didn’t want to see Tao Mu always look like he was always on top of the world. However, Shen Yu didn’t expect that after he went to the effort of taking the risk of breaking the law to do such a bad thing. The result turned out that Tao Mu’s biological parents didn’t find him, but instead he himself became stuck with a cold and heartless mother who also abandoned her child in a rental house.

So it seems that people shouldn’t do bad things, after all?

Shen Yu laughed self-deprecatingly at himself. His nineteen years of upbringing have always taught him to be kind. Because being kind might not guarantee that one would be treated with the same kindness by others, but if one was not kind, one would definitely be treated maliciously by the world.

Sure enough, he only did one bad thing, and the retribution instantly came.

—— sent him another lawyer’s letter. This time it was not only a lawyer’s letter, but also a subpoena from a court in Beijing. When he heard the news that the Shen family flew to Hong Kong to recognize their son, he lost his head for a while and actually even went straight to the airport to block them with a freshly released DNA identification report. Although Mrs. Shen refused to believe his report, there was solid evidence that he stole Tao Mu’s hair for DNA identification. If there was a lawsuit, he would definitely lose.

But the key was, would he have to go to jail after losing the lawsuit?

While Shen Yu fell into contemplation on his own, he heard the guest award announcer on the stage shout: “The one who won the Best Newcomer Award is…..Shen Yu, “Black and White”.”

Shen Yu was startled. When he came back to his senses, he found that the guests around him were applauding politely in front of the camera and looking at him with a smile. Even Tao Mu, who was a competitor, wore a rather playful smile. Only the other three nominees who were also nominated for the Best Newcomer Award looked dissatisfied.

A prison fate was just around the corner, even if he won the Best Newcomer Award and won against Tao Mu for the first time, Shen Yu was not at all excited. He walked onto the stage in a trance, took the trophy in a trance, and stood in front of the microphone in a trance. After a long silence, Shen Yu found that he could not remember the acceptance speech that he had silently recited many times.

“I know you all think I don’t deserve this award.” Shen Yu’s first sentence immediately caused an uproar. The stars present and the staff of the organizer almost didn’t manage to keep their smiles on their faces.

Shen Yu, what’s this situation?

“I know that many of you here look down on me. You think that I am not good at acting and can’t bear hardships. That I only rely on the back door to get resources and so on. But I am still very happy that the organizer awarded this award to me. After all, that I can be shortlisted for the nomination of the Best Newcomer Award means that I still have a certain strength. My performance will definitely be recognized by some people.”

“Next, if there is a chance I will continue to work hard to produce better works. I will try to be a qualified actor. Because I really like this profession. I don’t know what else I can do if I leave this profession.” When Shen Yu spoke to here, his eyes pierced through the crowd and landed on Tao Mu who was under the stage.

The camera followed Shen Yu’s eyes, and very cleverly showed Tao Mu in a close-up.

“Here, I also wish Tao Mu the Best Supporting Actor Award in advance. After all, your acting skills are really good.” When Shen Yu said this, he couldn’t help but feel sour. He really envied Tao Mu’s acting skills. He was obviously such an unkind person, yet he could pretend to be so perfect and win the love of so many people. While he could only watch the people around him distant themselves farther and farther away. In the end, only his lonely self was left.

There was still a close-up of Tao Mu’s face on the big screen. Hearing Shen Yu’s remarks, even the guests who completely had no relation were in an uproar. Only Tao Mu still maintained a calm smile, ignoring Shen Yu’s words, and instead smiled humbly at the other four Best Supporting Actor nominees.

The organizers of the Golden Crow Awards were very dissatisfied with Shen Yu’s speech. However, Shen Yu was backed by the Lin family, and even if the Golden Crow Award organizers were dissatisfied, they could only swallow their anger. After all, those in the entertainment industry would never be able to win against those who engage in capital and finance. What was more, the Lin family’s influence in Hong Kong was far more than just capital.

Not caring that his speech caused an uproar at the awards ceremony, Shen Yu returned to his seat with the trophy. Looking at Tao Mu with a complicated expression: “I’m going to jail soon. You see me eating my own bittee fruit, are you happy?”

Jail? Tao Mu frowned in confusion. He looked at Shen Yu thoughtfully.

What was up with this kid?

Shen Yu received a lawyer’s letter from and a subpoena from the court, and he was scared crazy these days. His mind was full of panic and anxiety about what to do if he had to go to jail. Seeing that Tao Mu was still pretending to be innocent at this time, he was immediately angry.

“What are you pretending to be innocent for. You clearly ordered to send me a lawyer’s letter, and then went to court to sue me. I’m going to jail soon, are you happy?”

Shen Yu knew that it was wrong to steal Tao Mu’s hair for a private DNA test, but he felt that his crime was far from one worth being jailed for. Tao Mu was indeed vicious and vengeful. Just because of this, he was going to go to jail. He was not yet twenty years old this year, and he didn’t want to go to jail.

However, stealing other people’s hair for DNA identification was an invasion of privacy in this country. According to the country’s “Public Security Administration Punishment Law”, violation of the right to privacy was a civil case, and even if the circumstances were slightly serious, one would only be detained for five to ten days and imposed a fine of less than 500 yuan. Only if the circumstances were extremely serious, such as illegally trespassing into other people’s houses, illegally searching other people’s bodies, or illegally voyeuring, or concealing letters and causing serious consequences, would they be sentenced to prison time.

And Shen Yu’s behavior of stealing hair for DNA identification was obviously not serious enough to require a criminal case. Even if Tao Mu resented Shen Yu’s behavior, he could only ask Lawyer Zhou to file a civil lawsuit to demand financial compensation and an apology. It was not possible to sue Shen Yu to jail. That was to say…..after receiving a lawyer’s letter and a court subpoena, a certain someone frightened himself into this state.

This person already knew he had done bad things. Yet couldn’t he find a lawyer who was familiar with civil law to consult the relevant laws and regulations after receiving the subpoena?

Tao Mu was speechless. But he was too lazy to explain the truth. He just hooked up the corner of his mouth at Shen Yu, and said with a playful smile: “You said it yourself, you are eating your own bitter fruit.”

Shen Yu glared at Tao Mu fiercely, his eyes reddened. The communication between the two was faithfully recorded by the camera and transmitted to all parts of Hong Kong through signals. Netizens sitting in front of the computer laughed when they saw this scene. Some netizens even tapped the keyboard to send comments through the bullet screen, and began to popularize relevant legal knowledge. In the end, it was agreed that Mr. Tao was really bad indeed, actually purposely letting Shen Yu misunderstand things and not explain. He also deliberately said things like that to be scary.

Didn’t he see Shen Yu was about to cry?

Just when all the netizens were hahaha, the Golden Crow Awards ceremony also arrived at the Best Supporting Actor award segment. Regrettably, Tao Mu did not receive the award. First of all, although Zhou Yuanting’s appearance in the film was stretched to 20 minutes, for a character who was shortlisted for the Best Supporting Actor Award, the appearance time was still relatively small. Moreover, the other four nominees who competed with Tao Mu were all veritable veteran actors, and two of them have even won the Best Actor crown. If their acting skills were really pit against each other, Tao Mu’s performance was brilliant, but he also couldn’t completely crush the other four nominees.

Secondly, Tao Mu was too young. Just nineteen years old, he was nominated for the Golden Crow Award for Best Supporting Actor in his first movie. This was already a great honor. Moreover, it showed the affirmation of Tao Mu’s acting skills by the Golden Crow Award panel and even the whole Hong Kong film circle. In this case, it didn’t really matter whether Tao Mu could get the award or not. What was more, the one who won the Best Supporting Actor Award this time was an old veteran actor in Hong Kong who was nearly seventy years old. This old veteran actor made his debut in his teens, and had been nominated countless times over the years, but had yet to win an award. The film shortlisted this time could be said to be the closing work of this old gentleman. Considering this, it was quite reasonable for the Golden Crow Awards to award the best supporting actor to him.

Of course, the most important point was that the Lin family in Hong Kong used the scandal that Tao Mu broke out some time ago to put pressure on the Golden Crow Awards. Claiming that a nominee with such a taint should not receive an award. The Lin family’s connections and influence in Hong Kong were very high, and even if the Golden Crow Award did not agree with the Lin family’s actions, they would not dare to disobey. Only the soft persimmons were pinched, and so they naturally came to beg Tao Mu. After all, although the Lin family was not easy to mess with, Tao Mu held in his hand and was backed by Xiaoheng Capital, so he was also not someone to mess with.

Fortunately, although Tao Mu liked acting, he was not obsessed with awards. If he could get it, it was the icing on the cake. If he couldn’t get it, so long as the box office looked good and the audience liked it, that was quite fine as well. In addition, Tao Mu’s sophistication and amiable socializing attitude were carved into his bone marrow. It seemed that when people’s achievements have reached a certain level, many things that they previously cared about and brooded over were not so important anymore. Seeing that the chairman of the Golden Crow Awards jury committee was quite old, and yet he was carefully apologizing in front of him for such a trivial matter, Tao Mu felt his interest wane. He didn’t want to make things difficult for the middleman, the Golden Crow Award. Instead of making things difficult for the Golden Crow Award, which could not control either side, it was better to directly pull the carpet from under the Lin family who was constantly bouncing around.

Having received Tao Mu’s attitude, the organizer of the Golden Crow Awards was relieved. As long as Tao Mu didn’t make it difficult for them, the organizers of the Golden Crow Awards didn’t bother to worry about whether these two powerhouses would fight. They even secretly hoped that Tao Mu would teach the Lin family a lesson. After all, the Lin family’s arrogant and domineering appearance in front of them was really annoying indeed. In order to express their goodwill towards Tao Mu, the organizer of the Golden Crow Awards selected the most suitable candidate for the award from among the other four nominees for Best Supporting Actor.

Sure enough, as soon as the winner of the Best Supporting Actor was announced, many netizens recalled the various works of the old gentleman since his debut, guided by the guest award announcer. That was several decades that accompanied the Hong Kong film industry from its glorious beginning and then to its decline. It also ran through the career of the old gentleman. After decades of ups and downs, now the old gentleman could get a trophy before he retired, which could be regarded as a satisfactory notation to his life’s career.

And the speech given by the old gentleman on the stage made many emotional fans unable to help but recall the past, and even wept.

Only Tao Mu’s fans and the movie fans felt a little regret alongside being moved. However, this regret disappeared at the end of the award ceremony, when they saw that Shen Yu was taken away by the police.

It seemed that it was more exciting to see the opponent being miserable than to see their idol succeed. Although Shen Yu was not qualified to be Tao Mu’s opponent in terms of industry status or achievements. But who made Shen Yu keep tying himself to Tao Mu since his debut. Like a hairy bug that didn’t bite but still disgust you. Now that he was being taken away by the police and about to face detention, it was simply too satisfying indeed.

Soon, however, news that was even more explosive than Shen Yu’s detention topped the trending search again.

——The Shen family actually brought Shen Yu’s biological mother, Yu Qingqing, to court for the crime of abandonment. The evidence was solid and the impact was bad, Yu Qingqing was about to face five years in prison.

It was only at this time that Yu Qingqing suddenly understood why even though Mrs. Shen had clearly guessed what she wanted to do, yet still allowed her to speak freely in front of the media to whitewash herself. It turned out that she was waiting for her here.

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 )

Mrs. Shen wanted everyone to see Yu Qingqing’s greedy and irresponsible face. To make Yu Qingqing pay a heavy price for abandoning the second son of the Shen family. And justifiably use this to continue to suppress or even acquire the listed trading company of Yu Qingqing’s husband. There was no doubt that the Shen Group wanted to take this opportunity to spread its business channels to Shenzhen. And take this as an entry point to carve up Shenzhen’s market.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 246 Mother Shen’s Methods

It was supposed to be Tao Mu’s red carpet interview time next. However, under the shock brought by Shen Yu’s white lotus mother who suddenly knelt down and cried and begged for mercy, all the reporters abandoned Tao Mu, who clearly had no new scoop to be dug out at the moment, as well as the later red carpet celebrities. A swarm of reporters instead gathered around Shen Yu and Shen Yu’s biological mother to take pictures and interview.

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 )

Seeing this situation, Tao Mu and his family members looked at each other in dismay, and exchanged glances with Zhou Yanqing and Fang Ruoti who were walking on the red carpet after them, then walked around the interview area in quite a low-key manner, leaving the entire stage to Shen Yu. As for the stars further back, after learning of the riot on the red carpet, they didn’t bother to come out onto the red carpet at all.

Before his birth background was exposed, Shen Yu never thought that one day he would call another woman mother. Even after his birth background was exposed and Shen Yu occasionally thought about what his biological mother would be like, he still never thought that the woman would really appear in front of him and integrate into his future life. Even though Shen Yan found the woman back then and she was interviewed live on, when Shen Yu looked at the noble, elegant, beautiful and slender woman in the video, he still didn’t possess much of a sense of reality.

In Shen Yu’s mind, the man surnamed Tan or that woman, they were both not Shen Yu’s real family. It could only be said that they were just strangers who brought Shen Yu to this world. Only the Shen family who he had been together with for 19 years were the parents, brother and sister recognized by Shen Yu.

So until Shen Yu’s biological mother broke through the crowd of fans and knelt in front of him, Shen Yu still didn’t feel much of a sense of reality. He looked at the woman kneeling in front of him in a trance, and his first reaction turned out to be disbelief: “Are you really my mother?”

“Of course.” The woman knelt on the red carpet with her long hair disheveled, raised her head, curved her slender neck in an elegant arc, and looked at Shen Yu with tears in her eyes. Even while cutting such a sorry figure, she still looked like she belonged in a refined and elegant idol drama.

“Xiao Yu, my child.” The woman choked and said, “I’m sorry for you, and I’m sorry for the real Second Young Master Shen. The Shen family is infuriated at what I have done, and whatever they do to me it is what I deserve. But my husband and your younger brother are innocent. The Shen family treats you so well, so could you help me talk things out with them so that Mrs. Shen will stop targeting my husband’s company?”

Shen Yu’s biological mother was called Yu Qingqing. Seriously speaking, this woman’s experience was simply a reality version of many idol dramas dressed in an inspirational outer image but in fact was quite a dog-blood Mary Sue drama. Born in an ordinary and poor family, she had poor grades since childhood, but because of her sweet appearance and gentle personality, she was liked by all elders and male classmates, and even many female classmates voluntarily became her protectors. At the age of 18, she went to work in a big city with a friend from the same village, and she was very lucky to be chosen by her employer and his wife to be a surrogate mother. At the age of 20, she gave birth to a child out of wedlock, and earned a total of 300,000 yuan by having and raising the child. In that era when households who had 10,000 yuan in the bank account were still talked about, the purchasing power of 300,000 yuan was almost equivalent to the current 30 million yuan.

A girl under the age of 20 managed to earn 300,000 yuan after working as a part-time worker for a year. Yu Qingqing took the 300,000 yuan to Beijing, and then to Shenzhen, where the economic environment was more open. In the beginning, she bought a shop and started a clothing business. Later she met her current husband. Yu Qingqing’s husband was also in the clothing business, but in foreign trade. After the two got married, Yu Qingqing became a full-time housewife. All the money earned was used to buy houses and collect rent. She also took advantage of her spare time to study fashion design. Her husband took over Yu Qingqing’s clothing business and merged the clothing factory into his own company. Although the husband and wife were not very rich and affluent, they were still considered to be quite well-off. The most important thing was that Yu Qingqing’s husband loved her very much, and even if he had to do outside socializing, he would not do things he shouldn’t do. The two have been in love for so many years, and they were well-known as a model couple in the circle.

Yu Qingqing was very satisfied with her life. If it wasn’t for Shen Yan who suddenly showed up and shattered Yu Qingqing’s peaceful life, and Mrs. Shen took her anger out on Yu Qingqing because of what happened back then, forcing all the company’s business partners to default on business contracts and the bank to cut off the company’s loans, such that the company almost went bankrupt, Yu Qingqing also didn’t want to disturb Shen Yu’s life at all.

She knew that as a mother, she had not cared about her son for nineteen years, and her son must have no feelings for her. What was more, Yu Qingqing also inquired around and knew that Shen Yu was living a good life now. Even though he saw the live broadcast, he didn’t think about contacting her, and so she concluded that he didn’t want to recognize her as a mother in the end. Besides, the news of Yu Qingqing abandoning her child in a rental house was previously exposed. Although it was later proved that the abandoned child was not actually her own flesh and blood, but the second son of the Shen family. But in Shen Yu’s heart, he must have decided that she, his biological mother, had abandoned him as an infant.

Yu Qingqing felt that she had no face to see Shen Yu. She was even more sorry towards the real second son of the Shen family. But all of this was her fault, and her husband and child were innocent. Now Mrs. Shen took action against her family because she was angry with her, and Yu Qingqing couldn’t bear it any longer. Only then did she run over and beg Shen Yu.

As Yu Qingqing expected, Shen Yu indeed really didn’t want to see her. When he just learned of Yu Qingqing’s identity, Shen Yu saw that the Yu Qingqing from the live video was so beautiful, noble, elegant and gentle, which completely matched his imagination of his mother. At that time, Shen Yu really wanted to contact his mother. But it didn’t take long for the news that Yu Qingqing abandoned her child in the rental house suddenly appeared on the Internet, and even Tao Mu was involved, which made Shen Yu completely unable to accept this reality.

Not only was he unable to accept the fact that Tao Mu was probably the second son of the Shen family, but Shen Yu couldn’t accept that his biological mother was a vicious woman who abandoned her baby. Clearly Yu Qingqing had already received 300,000 yuan at that time, and the living conditions were not so difficult, why then did she still abandon her child?

If Yu Qingqing had not abandoned the real second son of the Shen family, but raised that child well. Maybe the Shen family would not treat him so cruelly and coldly after discovering his birth background. Let alone take revenge after debunking Yu Qingqing’s lies. Mrs. Shen would not reject him so resolutely, believing that he was the murderer who killed the second son of the Shen family.

So everything Yu Qingqing suffered today was entirely her own fault.

“Why did you abandon that child back then?” These words were held in Shen Yu’s heart for a long time. He never had a chance to ask. In front of Yu Qingqing and all the media reporters and fans today, Shen Yu couldn’t help but ask: “You said you didn’t know about my sister’s replacement of the child. Then who you abandoned back then was your own child. Why are you so cruel, so vicious? You left such a small baby in a rental house for days, did you intend for him to die?”

When Shen Yu said this, he couldn’t help but substitute himself. If Shen Yan hadn’t switched them, he very likely would have been the one to be abandoned by his biological mother in the rental house. The one who nearly died and then ended up in an orphanage would have been him instead.

Thinking of this, Shen Yu was full of guilt for the real Second Young Master Shen. Likewise, he was simply unable to accept such a mother.

Yu Qingqing burst into tears when she heard Shen Yu’s questioning. Covering her cheeks in dismay, she cried, “In your heart, I am such a vicious and cruel woman? Do you think I was really willing to abandon my own son? But I had no choice!”

Being forced to abandon her own son back then was the dark history of Yu Qingqing’s life and a scar she never wanted to mention.

“My child, you are too young, you don’t know what that kind of situation meant for me.” Yu Qingqing explained that in those days, people’s thinking was very conservative. Yu Qingqing was a single mother who had a child out of wedlock. It was conceivable that no matter where she went, she would encounter strange looks from others. Hearing others talking behind her back, even dirty guessing about her past.

But the difficulties didn’t stop there. What made Yu Qingqing even more unable to bear it was the malice that a single mother encountered in that era. It was not just the speculation in others’ eyes and words, but also the harassment from a lot of nasty hooligans. Yu Qingqing was originally beautiful, but her personality was a little soft and cowardly. How could she endure such a life filled with malice.

In fact, at the beginning, when Yu Qingqing left Shanghai with her child, she really made up her mind to raise her child well. But such bad things happened several times, and finally even threatened Yu Qingqing’s personal safety and chastity. Yu Qingqing couldn’t bear it anymore. Only after being harassed by hooligans again, did she buy a ticket to leave Beijing in a fit of rage, and did something like abandoning her child and running away.

“Then you could have gived the child to your parents. When you left the hospital, didn’t you tell Mr. Tan and Mrs. Tan that you were going to send the child back to your hometown?” Shen Yu refused to believe Yu Qingqing’s explanation. In his opinion, no matter how reasonable Yu Qingqing’s excuse sounded, it was a fact that she cruelly abandoned Second Young Master Shen. It was precisely because of this that Mrs. Shen hated him so much that she refused to let him return to the Shen family. Therefore, Shen Yu had no way to forgive Yu Qingqing’s explanation.

Hearing Shen Yu’s naive question, Yu Qingqing smiled wryly and shook her head. She had already said that the customs of that era were simple and conservative. She was also a poor child born in a small mountain village. Less than two years after she came out to work, if she inexplicably brought a child back, and the child’s father never showed up. One could imagine how the villagers would talk about it.

“Your grandfather and grandmother are people who value face. If they hear those gossip, they would definitely become ill from anger. I will also have to go out to work, and I can’t stay at home to take care of them. This is already unfilial of me, so how could I cause them such trouble for my own reason?”

Yu Qingqing truly believed this. She couldn’t bring the child back to her hometown and embarrass her parents. She also couldn’t raise the child by her side because she didn’t have the ability to bring up the child. That was why the child was abandoned in the rental house. Yu Qingqing admitted that what she did was wrong. In fact, she could have found a better way. Like giving that child to someone else to raise. But at that time, Yu Qingqing was too young to do things perfectly.

But this couldn’t be blamed on her. After all, she sincerely did want to raise the child well. However, the reality was too cruel, Yu Qingqing did not expect that a single mother raising a child would encounter so many difficulties. It also never occurred to her that she could not solve these problems at all.

At that time, Yu Qingqing only knew how to solve problems by escaping.

Having said this, Yu Qingqing sobbed even more in shame.

The media reporters and the fans watching on the side were simply stunned by Yu Qingqing’s logic. For a while, they actually dazedly felt that there was nothing wrong with what Yu Qingqing said. She was just a young girl back then, and there was really no way for her to be a single mother. So the act of leaving the child in the rental house…..couldn’t be blamed on her?

Tao Mu, who had already entered the award ceremony venue hall, was so angry that he almost closed the live video. Sitting next to him, Liu Yao, Meng Qi, and old Mr. Song also had complex expressions, and couldn’t help but comment: “This Shen Yu’s mother and Shen Yu are really…..”

Like mother like son?!

Also sitting at the awards ceremony, some sensitive female stars couldn’t help but tear up a bit. As women and mothers as well, although they did not agree with what Yu Qingqing did back then, they could all understand Yu Qingqing’s thoughts and actions. Being a single mother was really hard. Society was simply too hostile to women. Even the open-minded Hong Kong had no way to escape the chains of society, let alone the completely closed and backward mainland twenty years ago?

And online. There were also some inexplicable remarks that have sprung up like mushrooms after a rain. At first glance, those experienced could tell that these were water army accounts, claiming in a reasonable otone on the live broadcast platform of It was true that Yu Qingqing was wrong, but this was not the reason why the Shen family could retaliate against Yu Qingqing’s husband. After all, it was not Yu Qingqing who switched the child, but the eldest young lady of the Shen family. That was to say, who Yu Qingqing abandoned in a heart-wrenching manner back then was her own flesh and blood. The Shen family was in charge of such a big listed group, yet they couldn’t even recognize their own child. How could they have the face to take revenge on others?

If she really wanted to take revenge, who Mrs. Shen should educate most was her daughter, who did all kinds of evil by virtue of her family background, rather than making it difficult for a poor mother. Now, because of her own mistakes, she took her anger out on others. Sure enough, like mother like daughter.

Seeing these bizarre remarks, Tao Mu resisted the urge to get sick and put away the phone. If it wasn’t for’s principle of not interfering with fans’ comments, Tao Mu almost wanted to call the technology department and block these water army accounts.

At the same time, Tao Mu had to sigh, sure enough, the older the ginger was, the more spicy. When it came to inciting public opinion and guiding netizens to a rhythm, the rank of this Ms. White Lotus was much higher than that of Shen Yu. Even though she was obviously greedy and vain, willingly becoming a surrogate for money, and then abandoning the child after getting the money, this Ms. White Lotus managed to whitewash herself and become a weak and innocent single mother who was unjustly persecuted in that era. And most importantly, she could make some people feel that she was actually doing the right thing, and even those who think she was doing the wrong thing could sympathize with her. And even caused bad public feelings for the Shen family’s aggressive and bullying attitude.

Seeing that many netizens were indiscriminately cursing and slandering the Shen family, Mrs. Shen, who was sitting in front of the computer, was so angry that her liver hurt.

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 )

What did they mean that their Shen family was bullying and aggressive? Have these netizens forgotten that who Yu Qingqing abandoned back then was the child of their Shen family! Their Shen family took care of Yu Qingqing’s child, but Yu Qingqing threw their Shen family’s child behind in a rental house to fend for himself. How could it be that she, the mother, couldn’t even take revenge on the murderer who indirectly killed her child?

After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 018 Physical Exam

After the consultation, the Jiang family set the time of admission to the hospital at the end of April.

On the day Jiang Zhuo was admitted to the hospital, it coincided with the routine physical examination of the high school second years. There was no class in the morning and more than half of the teenagers were in especially good spirits. They laughed and joked without care, full of energy.

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 )

Only Shen Xu was an exception, his face pale, watching the line in front of him shorten little by little, and his whole person wanted to cry but he was without tears, and could only hunch his thin shoulders pitifully and helplessly.

Jiang Chen stood behind him, holding a black-covered book in his hand, reading while waiting in line, leisurely and calmly.

“Brother Jiang, why do you think they draw such a large tube of blood?” Shen Xu stretched his neck to watch the person in front of him draw blood, and after watching it, he leaned on Jiang Chen tremblingly, with a chalk white face: “I won’t faint from the blood loss, will I?”

“You say that every time you had your blood drawn before, but did you ever faint?” Jiang Chen glanced at him, then lowered his eyes to continue reading.

“You fellow, crossing the river and demolishing the bridge!” Shen Xu was not comforted, and he became dissatisfied in an instant, but his spirits also rose and he said: “You want to switch our test tubes, and your good brother, I, agreed without a word. But when I am so nervous and in need of a little comfort from you, you actually ignore me like this. Soon my body will be hurt later, but now you actually hurt my heart first, do you have a conscience, are you still my good brother or not?”

Jiang Chen sighed in the bottom of his heart. He very much missed Huo Bo at times like these, if Huo Bo was here, just a look from him would make Shen Xu shut up.

“How do you want me to comfort you?”

“May 1, accompany me for at least three days!” Shen Xu immediately stood up straight, and said while counting his fingers, “One day to play basketball, one day to play video games, and one day to…..”

Jiang Chen didn’t wait for him to finish, and just helped him to finish: “Go to the library to study.”

“What library, what study!” Shen Xu was dissatisfied: “Seven days off! It’s a long vacation! Who goes to the library! And how could there be any spot left in the library?”

“You will go if there’s an open spot?”

“I…..” Shen Xu pursed his lips, but knowing that Jiang Chen was going to go, he could only reluctantly say: “Fine, fine, it happens that my parents are at home this holiday, although they know that I will be hanging out with you and won’t lecture me, but if they know we are going to the library, I might have more pocket money next month.”

Jiang Chen patted his shoulder and raised his chin slightly: “It’s your turn.”

The blood draws on this line have basically been finished. Most of the boys rushed in front and left after the drawing. Most of the girls queued behind the boys, but they also knew that they would have to have their blood drawn sooner or later and so did not dawdle, just rolled up their sleeves when their turn arrived. Only Shen Xu felt faint from needles and blood, and dragged Jiang Chen to the end of the line, until only the two of them were left in the arranged office.

However, this was exactly what Jiang Chen needed.

Shen Xu stepped forward, the nurse looked up at him and asked, “Jiang Chen?”

Shen Xu paused, then nodded.

“Put your arm on the table, when I ask you to make a fist, you will make a fist, and if it’s let go, then you let go.” Probably because Shen Xu’s complexion was too ugly, and it was the last two students already, the nurse smiled and comforted: “‘Classmate Jiang Chen ‘, don’t be afraid, this will be over very quickly.”

The fake Jiang Chen nodded, grabbing the real Jiang Chen’s arm with one hand, resting his other arm on the cushion, stiffened his neck and closed his eyes as if he was being tortured.

Jiang Chen sighed, covered Shen Xu’s eyes, and whispered to the nurse, “Please be gentle.”

“Don’t worry.” The nurse smiled and said, “It’s just an ant bite, it won’t…..”


Before the nurse’s words that it wouldn’t hurt was even finished saying, Shen Xu’s screech startled her so much that her hands almost trembled. Fortunately, her professional quality was still there, and she quickly drew the needle, the process considered finished.

However, she really had been shocked and said with both amusement and irritation: “How could it hurt so much, classmate Jiang Chen, you are such a big boy, but you are like a child toward having your blood drawn.”

Shen Xu clutched his arm, his expression weak and fragile but confident: “I, Jiang Chen, am afraid of injections. I have been afraid of injections since I was a child, not only injections but also…..”

Jiang Chen rolled up his sleeves and glanced at him calmly when he stretched out his hand. Shen Xu immediately shut his mouth.

The nurse quickly drew blood for Jiang Chen, and after drawing the blood, she said to Shen Xu, “Look at ‘classmate Shen Xu’, he is not afraid at all, you are friends, learn more from him.”

Shen Xu covered his stomach with a snort and bent over from the laughter. Before waiting for Jiang Chen to speak, he nodded again and again: “Okay, okay, I will definitely learn from ‘classmate Shen Xu’.”

After the physical examination was the May 1st holiday.

Yesterday, the school went on vacation, and Jiang Zhuo was officially admitted to the hospital to prepare for surgery. Yang Si went to the hospital early in the morning with a change of clothes and breakfast. Jiang Chen went over at noon, and after changing shifts with Yang Si, delivered lunch to Jiang Zhuo. After sitting with him for a while, he was then driven away.

Both Jiang Zhuo and his wife felt that after the accident, Jiang Chen’s character was much more serious and solemn than before. Although others would think he had become more sensible, they felt distressed in their hearts. Before on holidays, the child would often go out to play basketball with friends. Now he always stayed at home or studied or helped out around the house. Children of this age didn’t need to be like this, they just wanted him to be happy.

Therefore, when Jiang Zhuo saw Jiang Chen sit next to him, pick up the book he brought and opened it, as if he was going to read it all afternoon, he took out the book in his hand and drove him out without hesitation. He stuffed him with fifty yuan and told him to find Shen Xu and Huo bo to play what he wanted to play, and eat what he wanted to eat, and not to sit dully at home or in the hospital all the time.

Jiang Chen had no choice but to leave the hospital with the money.

Today was the first day of May. Shen Xu and his parents were going to visit relatives and Huo Bo was not in Yan City now. So today he planned to read a book in the hospital while taking care of his father. But at this time, the plan was disrupted and he didn’t know where else to go.

Walking out the hospital, Jiang Chen paused and his eyes fell on the lively quaint old street two blocks away.

It was an antique street and was quite famous in Yan City. A few years ago, someone bought a long-necked gourd bottle from the Qianlong period for 30 yuan on a street stall and became rich overnight. Since then, Antique Street had also grown in popularity and there was an endless stream of people who go there to find treasures, as well as attract many tourists to visit.

Although Jiang Chen had always lived in Yan City, he only passed by there in his first life and never went in, and the same was true in this life. It just so happened that he had nothing to do now, so he turned and walked towards Antique Street.

Antique Street was crowded with people, it was a holiday now, and there were many tourists.

Jiang Chen had just walked a few steps but he was already about to turn around and go back, but the crowd pushed him forward, and it was very difficult to turn back now, so he had to choose to go out from the other end of Antique Street.

Most of the storefronts on both sides were decorated in retro style. There were big houses with red doors and stone lions, and there were small houses with wooden beams and carved wooden windows. If there were no crowds of people in modern wear, at first glance, it really appeared like a scene from ancient times.

Jiang Chen stopped in front of a wooden door, and his eyes stopped at the copper basin that was placed at the door. The basin was full of round ancient coins, some clean and some mottled, of different sizes.

“Customer, would you like to buy some copper coins?” Probably seeing him standing for a long time, the shop clerk dressed in a very retro style came over, but his words were a strange blend of ancient and modern: “If you want to buy it, our Guyun Shop will definitely satisfy you. What year does the customer want, I can give you a look?”

Jiang Chen returned to his senses, declined the clerk’s promotion, and turned around and left the shop.

Standing at the door for a few seconds, he pursed his lower lip, raised his legs and walked in the opposite direction of the flow of people.

After leaving Antique Street, Jiang Chen sat down at the bus stop next to him and lowered his eyes to think about what he had just suddenly thought of.

In the first life, when the company he started with Huo Bo and Shen Xu was just starting, they finally negotiated a cooperation that was extremely important to them at the time. In order to show respect for their future partners, all three of them attended the banquet hosted by the other party.

He had never liked to participate in these banquets, and he had hardly attended them a few times in total. That banquet was one that left the most impression on him, because their future business partner, after a few drinks, grabbed him to sit down next to him and told him his rags to riches tale.

“On May Day in 2004, I was going to the outskirts of Yan City to see my relatives. Who would have thought that I would pick up a silver currency banknote printed by the Hubei Official Money Bureau? Do you know what a Hubei Official Money Bureau Silver Currency Banknote is? Have you seen it before? Let me tell you…..the silver banknote reads ‘Based on this banknote, withdraw an estimate of ten taels’, I still remember it clearly, not a single word forgotten! When I saw that silver banknote, my heart skipped a beat, and I knew that my chance to make a fortune had come, so I immediately hid it and took it home. It turned out that I really hit the jackpot. In 2006, there was an auction in Hong Kong. Do you know how much it cost? 1.3 million yuan! 1.3 million! That’s how I got my first pot of gold hahahaha…..”

Although he only relayed what was written on that banknote once, Jiang Chen’s memory had always been excellent. In addition, the experience of having a drunk man who was grabbing on to him at that time and alternating between boasting about his rags to riches tale and then bursting into folk songs was too particular. Despite two lifetimes having passed, that incident and that out-of-tune singing was still not erased from his memory.

It was just that this incident never held an important place in his memory, it was a memory garbage that left such an impression that it was difficult to eliminate, so before seeing that pot of copper coins just now, he didn’t recall it at all, but after seeing those copper coins, the memory appeared naturally.

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 )

Now was the first day of the May Day holiday week in 2004. Although he didn’t know which day the person picked up the banknote during the holiday, within this time period, Jiang Chen decided to check it out.

If that silver banknote was picked up by him today, he would keep part of the money, and if not, he would not go look for it again.

The No. 213 bus stopped in front of him, Jiang Chen got up and stepped onto the bus.

The city was brightly lit at night. Looking down from the building, one could see the bustling people below. The shopping malls were particularly lively, and young couples could be seen laughing and eating snacks.

Mama Zhang poured Qin Xing a cup of black tea.

Qin Xing sat on the sofa and looked at the apartment that Shen Zhen had just moved into.

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 )

It did not look lived-in nor did it appear full of life.

Just like Shen Zhen.

Qin Xing’s sitting posture was very casual, as if this was his home. Shen Zhen also suddenly found that he had never seen Qin Xing’s nervous or restrained appearance. He was always like this, as if everything was in his control.

“Uncle.” Shen Zhen sat obediently to the side, he had never been so obedient and docile before.

Qin Xing’s fingers twitched, but he still didn’t extend his hand. He just looked at Shen Zhen with a smile, knowing that the time was not yet right: “Why didn’t Xiao Zhen buy a villa?”

Shen Zhen explained it very seriously: “It’s too far from the company, and it’s just me and Mama Zhang, so I don’t need too big of a house.”

The villa areas were generally in the suburbs, and he had lived in the Qin manor for so many years, but he had not felt much benefits in living in a big house. Rather, he felt that a big house was too empty and quiet. The sound insulation of the windows was very good so once the windows were closed, it seemed that he was the only person in the whole world.

“Ah Yue wants to come back.” Qin Xing suddenly changed the subject, he looked at Shen Zhen, his eyes were slightly curved in a half-smile.

Shen Zhen paused, he had not thought of Qin Yue for several days.

“Really?” Shen Zhen’s movements and expressions were very natural, “Uncle let him go to T City so that he can have some training, and T City is also a new first-tier city, and Eldest Brother should become familiar with the business there.”

Qin Xing seemed very satisfied with this answer, and the corners of his mouth curled upwards slightly: “Does Xiao Zhen want to go to T City?”

“I don’t want to go.” Shen Zhen blurted out almost in the next second, without thinking at all. He also noticed this, and explained, “Eldest Brother and I can’t do things together, we have a bit of conflict.”

Qin Xing didn’t ask any further. It was not good to ask too much about the matters among juniors. He picked up the teacup and took a sip.

“Xiao Zhen, do you want to study at Uncle’s side?”

Shen Zhen couldn’t deny that he was excited for a moment. With Qin Xing as a teacher, this was a benefit that many people couldn’t ask for.

But he still shook his head and said, “Uncle, do you know something?”

Qin Xing suddenly reached out and ruffled Shen Zhen’s hair, with deep, undisguised indulgence in his tone: “Uncle always cares about Xiao Zhen’s affairs the most. Since you are unhappy working at the lower levels, then come to Uncle’s side.”

“At Uncle’s side, Xiao Zhen can do whatever you want.”

Shen Zhen swallowed his saliva, his heart pounding in his chest. He looked into Qin Xing’s eyes; Qin Xing’s eyes were full of smiles and doting, but no joking intentions at all.

“I also want to study by Uncle’s side, but…..if I run to Uncle just because I encounter a little difficulty, what will I do in the future? It’s not like Uncle can…..” take care of him for the rest of his life.

One day, the Qin family would be Qin Yue’s Qin family, then it would be too late if he wanted to stand up again.

And he still didn’t know why Qin Xing treated him differently. After all, in the original book, Qin Xing was just a mysterious symbol, and he was more like a background character.

In the book, after his death, he went abroad and left all domestic business to Qin Yue.

If there was something in him that made Qin Xing treat him differently, why didn’t he have it in his previous life? The book hadn’t written this?

Shen Zhen felt that there must be something he didn’t know.

Maybe he missed it, maybe he forgot, but something must have happened.

Qin Xing suddenly said, “It’s not like what?”

Shen Zhen pursed his lips and suddenly changed the subject: “Uncle, it’s ten o’clock now.”

It was ten o’clock at night.

In Shen Zhen’s memory, Qin Xing’s work and rest time was very fixed. He woke up at six o’clock in the morning and went to bed at eleven o’clock in the evening. It couldn’t be a second earlier or a second later. Now it was ten o’clock, and if Qin Xing went back by car now, plus the time it took to wash up, he would definitely not be in time to sleep at eleven o’clock.

However, Qin Xing had a habit of cleanliness. Even if he went out to stay in a hotel, an assistant would go there ahead of time to disinfect all the appliances——even if the hotel had already done so.

So Shen Zhen wouldn’t say anything about letting Qin Xing stay overnight.

Anyway, Qin Xing would not agree.

Sure enough, Qin Xing stood up.

“I’m going back.” Qin Xing pinched Shen Zhen’s face and reminded, “Eat more even while outside, you have lost weight.”

“Xiao Zhen, no matter what you wanted to say before, the answer will always be negative. So long as Uncle wants to, there is nothing Uncle can’t do.”

After Qin Xing left, Shen Zhen walked to the mirror and tilted his head to look at several angles, but he didn’t notice that he was getting thinner.

“Mama Zhang, have I lost weight?” Shen Zhen asked Mama Zhang.

Mama Zhang also stepped forward to look at him, and said firmly: “You have not lost weight at all, you just don’t have much flesh on your face.”

Mama Zhang asked nervously, “What’s the matter? Have you lost your appetite these days?”

Shen Zhen quickly explained: “No, it’s Uncle who thinks I’ve lost weight.”

Mama Zhang understood and said with a smile, “All elders are like this. They feel that the child has become thin after not seeing them for a few days. This is doting on you!”

Shen Zhen thought about it and felt that this might be the case.

Mama Zhang was getting older, and her sleep time was getting shorter and shorter. When there was nothing to do in the evening she would just turn on the TV and knit wool. She couldn’t remain idle and had been busy for most of her life. Even if Shen Zhen asked her to take a good rest now, she couldn’t do it.

When Shen Zhen was about to go to the bathroom to take a shower, the video intercom at the door rang. It was a video invitation from the security room.

Shen Zhen wore a bathrobe and walked over to accept it.

The security guard was in uniform and had a good attitude. He said respectfully, “Mr. Shen, a Mr. Su said he wanted to see you.”

In Shen Zhen’s memory, the only person with the surname Su who was related to him was Su Shiqing, so Shen Zhen responded: “No.”

Security guard: “Mr. Su said he has something important to tell you.”

Shen Zhen: “I said no.”

Security: “But Mr. Su…..”

Shen Zhen closed the video intercom.

Su Shiqing had this ability. No matter where he was or who he met, the other party would sympathize with him, pity him, and then help him.

This was probably an innate talent that ordinary people could not imitate even if they tried.

However, now Shen Zhen had lost interest in Su Shiqing.

He made a different choice from his previous life at an important turning point in his life, and following events would no longer go according to what was written in the book.

His future was now in his own hands.

Qin Yue was worth spending his energy, but Su Shiqing had lost his original value.

Without Qin Yue to protect him, without Qin Xin’s fondness, and even without having taken the surname of the Shen family, he was sent back to the Su family by the Qin family. Su Shiqing was worthless now.

Shen Zhen yawned, went to the bathroom to take a shower, and then went to sleep.

He didn’t think about anything. He had drank a glass of red wine before going to bed so he had no dreams all night, and slept very soundly.

The next morning, it was still dark when Shen Zhen got up from the warm bed. Mama Zhang was already up, and breakfast was placed on the table. The breakfast was not rich and plentiful, but very healthy: a bowl of white porridge, a plate of side dishes, a bun and an egg.

Shen Zhen had no objection to such a breakfast. On the contrary, he felt that this was the taste that a family should have.

In the Qin family manor, breakfast was as rich as a banquet, but he had always just taken a few quick bites, not having the mood to taste it carefully.

But now, sitting at the dining table, he felt that a simple boiled egg with a little salt was delicious.

“Mama Zhang, is your son coming over?” Shen Zhen asked.

Mama Zhang paused: “I…..I haven’t asked him yet.”

She didn’t know how to face her own son. She loved him, but compared to her love for Shen Zhen, it seemed too shallow. She could only keep sending money to her son. After working for so many years, in addition to the Qin family’s salary being very high, she had earned a lot of money. Since she came to the Qin family, her husband had quit his job, in the name of taking care of their child full-time.

As a result, she found out later that her son was living like a savage while her husband was fooling around with her money, lying that he was a small boss and even kept a mistress on the side.

She could only send her son to her parents and let him live with his grandparents, while she continued to work outside to earn money and work hard to support the family. The father didn’t care about the child, and asked her for money every now and then, and she was not there as a mother either. Towards this son, guilt and love were mixed together.

She was afraid to see him.

Shen Zhen comforted: “Mama Zhang, don’t be afraid.”

Mama Zhang nodded and pinched the bridge of her nose: “I know, I’m not afraid, you go to work quickly, don’t be late.”

Shen Zhen put on his suit jacket and overcoat, and stepped out of the door. There was central air conditioning in the corridor, and the cold temperature was not felt in the building.

It was not until the door of the building was opened that Shen Zhen’s fingers trembled.

However, before he reached the intersection, his eyelids jumped, and he saw a familiar figure squatting in the corner beside the gate.

A man in a security uniform was handing a cup of soy milk to the person.

It seemed that Su Shiqing had squatted here all night.

Shen Zhen knew that he couldn’t pretend he didn’t see anything at this time.

“Su Shiqing?” Shen Zhen came to a distance of one meter from Su Shiqing and stopped.

Su Shiqing raised his head. He had been here all night, last night he was in the security booth and there was a heater, but in order to wait for Shen Zhen and pretend to be miserable in the morning, he purposely squatted at the door. He was only blown by the cold wind for an hour but the tip of his nose became red and he started to cough. It was estimated that after today, he would have a cold and fever, and he would not be able to go outside for a while.

Su Shiqing’s tone was tearful: “Ah Zhen, why didn’t you let me go up last night?”

The security guard took care of Su Shiqing all night, and the look he gave Shen Zhen was wrong. Sure enough, rich people were like this. When friends were rich, they were good brothers. When they have no money, they pretend not to know each other. Pei, looking decent on the surface but having no conscience behind the scenes.

Shen Zhen asked, “What are you doing here? Was it not obvious enough what I said before?”

Su Shiqing wiped his tears: “Eldest Brother went to T City, he told me to wait for him to come back, but Auntie sent me back to the Su family. Ah Zhen, Uncle treats you well, can you go and tell Uncle to let me go back to the Qin family? The Su family treats me badly.”

When he lived in the Qin family manor, no matter which relative saw him, they were all very nice to him.

But when he was sent back to the Su family, everyone’s expressions changed, and his status was not even as good as when he hadn’t gone to live in the Qin family manor before.

Su Shiqing knew that he could no longer stay in the Su family.

He had to go back to the Qin family. Only when he went back to the Qin family could he stay by Qin Yue’s side all the time and live a good life being respected and loved by others.

The security guard said without a bit of tack at all, “Mr. Shen, you are Mr. Su’s friend. When a friend is in trouble, you should reach out to help. I don’t think Mr. Su is an ungrateful person.”

Shen Zhen laughed: “I’m neither his father nor his mother, why should I care about him? This big brother, if you are so kind, then why don’t you help him? If you help him, he will definitely not be ungrateful.”

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 )

Su Shiqing cried out: “Ah Zhen, you can’t not care about me!”

Shen Zhen looked at him: “Su Shiqing, I’m tired of seeing your pitiful act, why not change to a new face.”

“After all, Qin Yue is the only one who falls for it.”

TN: this self-entitled white lotus🔪. And that security guard too😒
