After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 036 Back Then

Jiang Chen and He Qianmin looked at Huo Bo at the same time, with the same expressions of surprise and confusion. Those brown pupils were clear and beautiful, and the dimple slightly sunken in the left corner of the mouth was also faintly visible on both.

Huo Bo’s gaze froze slightly, and what he was going to say was instantly forgotten. He finally knew why he kept getting a familiar and strange feeling after seeing He Qianmin.

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 )

The knuckles of He Qianmin’s fingers holding the bandage turned white, he let go of it quickly, curled his fingers into fists, and tensed his jaw: “Why do you think so?”

Huo Bo didn’t say a word, his eyes shuttled between Jiang Chen and He Qianmin. After going back and forth dozens of times, he suddenly got up, looked at Jiang Chen expressionlessly and said, “Come out with me.”

Jiang Chen sighed helplessly in his heart. Just when he saw Huo Bo looking back and forth between him and He Qianmin, he knew that Huo Bo must have guessed something, and sure enough.

Seeing Huo Bo’s eyes, He Qianmin somehow felt that what he wanted to say to Jiang Chen was very important, not only to Jiang Chen, but also to him. He wanted to get up as well, but was pressed down by Jiang Chen. He rubbed his head: “We’ll just be out for a bit to talk about something, you just sit here obediently.”

He Qianmin’s slightly opened mouth was pressed shut under Jiang Chen’s restraining eyes, and finally he could only frown, watching them go out.

As soon as Jiang Chen and Huo Bo left, Shen Xu came over with three sauce dishes. Seeing that He Qianmin was alone at the table, he asked strangely, “Where are the two of them?”

With a sullen face, He Qianmin leaned back: “Went out.”

“Went out?” Shen Xu glanced at the door, shrugged and said, “It must be to buy drinks, let’s eat first.”

He Qianmin looked in the direction of the exit with a tense expression: “No.”

Shen Xu was puzzled: “No what?”

“…..It’s nothing.” He Qianmin glanced at the direction the two left in again, then looked away and asked Shen Xu: “You, Huo Bo and my big brother, did the three of you grow up together?”

“Practically, yeah.” Shen Xu fished out the ingredients he ordered earlier, put them on their respective plates according to Jiang Chen’s and Huo Bo’s respective tastes, and left a portion for He Qianmin, and said while adding more: “I have known Jiang Chen since kindergarten, and Huo Bo since the first grade of elementary school, and the three of us have been together since then until now.”

“How did you guys meet?”

“Jiang Chen and I? We were in the same class.” Thinking of something, Shen Xu suddenly let out a “pffft”, lowered his head and held back his laughter, saying in a low voice, “Don’t look at your big brother like this now, he was quite funny when he was young. The teachers in our kindergarten school loved to tease him. I don’t know who he learned from but he loves to reason with others. Even if a child snatched his toys, he never got angry. He would just move a small bench over and sit wherever the other kid was playing with the snatched toy, and he would seriously reason with the other hahahahahahaha……”

He Qianmin imagined that scene, and also couldn’t help but laugh out loud, but when he looked up and saw the scene of Shen Xu rubbing his stomach with laughter, he was a little unhappy, and said: “This proves that my big brother is more mature than you all since he was a child.”

“Indeed, from childhood to adulthood…..” Shen Xu put the freshly served crispy meat in front of He Qianmin: “Your big brother specially ordered it for you, try it——Huo Bo and I were responsible for causing trouble, and he was responsible for cleaning up the mess. Countless times he was the scapegoat for us, and the most amazing thing was that even though he took the blame on himself, those teachers would refuse to believe that he did it. But because he admitted to it, the teachers couldnt do anything to me and Huo Bo, so the two of us could get away with it every time.”

He Qianmin was eating the crispy meat, and thinking of something, his eyes dimmed. Seeing this, Shen Xu changed the subject: “Don’t you have an elder brother? Then you two grew up together, did you often fight?”

……

Outside the hotpot restaurant.

Huo Bo cut to the chase and said, “Who the hell is He Qianmin? He looks so similar to you, don’t say it’s a coincidence”

“My little brother.”

Huo Bo crossed his arms, furrowed his brows and said, “I remember that your only blood-related brother is Yang Shengmao.”

The corners of Jiang Chen’s mouth slightly curled up, “Now there is one more.”

Huo Bo: “One…..more?”

Jiang Chen suppressed his smile and said seriously: “I know you have many doubts, but before the truth is investigated, I can’t tell you a guess without evidence. Huo Bo, I know you are worried about me, but I can only deal with it myself, don’t intervene and don’t ask too much, when the time comes, you will know.”

Huo Bo stared at him quietly, and after a while, he said, “I just want to ask one question, does the Sun Zhi matter have anything to do with what you want to investigate?”

Jiang Chen: “Yes.”

Huo Bo’s eyes darkened: “If you encounter any possible danger, you must tell me.”

Jiang Chen chuckled, and the two knocked fists, tacit understanding in their hearts.

……

When Jiang Chen and Huo Bo went back, Shen Xu was waving his chopsticks to teach He Qianmin to fight: “…..if someone sneaks up on you from behind, just do it like this, elbow back first, and then lower your body, and while he isn’t paying attention, poke his eyes, use the eagle claws move, got it? Just like that! Never show mercy, and if…..”

Huo Bo and Jiang Chen looked at each other, rolled their eyes and suppressed a smile.

“You guys came back just in time. I’m teaching the secret manual of the Shen family. Little brother Min has good comprehension skills, but his attitude towards learning is a bit…..”

He Qianmin: “Shut up.”

Shen Xu shook his head and said, “The child can’t be taught”, then put away the chopsticks and asked them, “What were you two talking about, it’s been so long.”

Huo Bo: “Just chatting.”

“If it’s just chatting why go outside.” Shen Xu took the drinks they brought back, took out the milk, kept one for himself and handed the other to He Qianmin: “This is for you.”

He Qianmin’s eyes landed on the milk box for a second, then turned to look at Jiang Chen who had just sat down: “Big Brother, what did you guys do out there?”

“Buy drinks.” Jiang Chen helped him open the milk: “There is only beer here, so I bought a few bottles of milk.”

“But just now…..”

As soon as He Qianmin started talking, Jiang Chen’s cell phone rang. He glanced at the number, raised his hand to signal to the few people, got up and walked to a quiet place.

“D.” The other party’s voice was a little raspy and vague, with a hint of a smile: “The little favor you asked me to do yesterday has been completed, I wonder if you are satisfied?”

Jiang Chen stood by the window, watching the people coming and going outside on the streets, the smile on his face fading: “What happened on his side?”

“Nothing happened except trying to find out who beat him up, but I found something interesting.”

“What is it?”

“He Qianjian was in contact with a man recently and gave him a sum of money. The amount was not large. It seemed that he wanted to ask him to do something.”

“Who?”

“A man named Yang Tianci, I checked. He has no background and had no contact with He Qianjian before. Do you need me to find out how they met?”

“No, continue keeping watch on him, and let me know if there is any change.”

“Okay.” The man paused, and said, “There is one more thing, I wonder if you would like to hear it.”

“Please go ahead.”

The other laughed: “The person I found to do the deed might have been a little bit too rough. He Qianjian not only broke his right hand, but also suffered some injuries to his head. He passed out for a while and remained unconscious in the hospital. The doctor helped him do a brain examination, but unexpectedly they actually found that there indeed seemed to be some problem with his head. It just so happened that the He family arrived to see him, and the doctor suggested He Qianjian to have a comprehensive examination. Who knew that when his blood was drawn, he suddenly woke up.”

Jiang Chen’s eyes narrowed: “And then?”

“Refused to agree with it. Apparently, he almost hit the nurse who took his blood for this. The He family rushed to the ward in time to stop it.”

“Was his blood drawn?”

“No, he said that he had just had a blood test a few days ago, and there was no problem with the blood. The He family didn’t insist anymore, and there were no problems in other aspects, so he was discharged from the hospital. What’s interesting is that when the He family just walked out of the hospital gate, a Taoist priest walked by them. The Taoist priest shook his head when he saw He Qianjian. When the old madam of the He family asked, he said that He Qianjian had no fate with the He family, and that he could not see his future clearly because his fortune was messed up, entangled in the fortune of several people. He also persuaded He Qianjian to commit less crimes.”

Jiang Chen’s eyes flickered slightly: “Is that person really a fortune teller?”

“Not necessarily.” The other side said with a smile: “Perhaps it was someone who disliked the He family who came to try to upset the He family. He not only said He Qianjian had no fate with the He family, he also claimed that the He family had a heart that faced towards the benevolence and originally should have been protected by virtue for a hundred years, but because of strange powers they would meet with great danger, within three years there would be a catastrophe, and only one person could solve it. If this is not a curse then I don’t know what is, no wonder the old gentleman of the He family raised his cane.”

The other side obviously only regarded this incident as a joke, but Jiang Chen narrowed his eyes. He didn’t think that the appearance of the Taoist priest was a coincidence, and those words he said…..some of them were actually not wrong, but, he really wanted to know if the Taoist priest was a real Taoist priest or if there were other forces that he didn’t know were targeting the He family or He Qianjian. If there was another wave of people, he really wanted to know what the purpose of that person was.

“Go and check that Taoist priest.”

After hanging up the phone, Jiang Chen returned to his seat. Seeing that He Qianmin hadn’t moved his chopsticks, he couldn’t help asking, “You don’t want to eat?”

“No.” He Qianmin put down his chopsticks, sat upright and looked at Jiang Chen. He wanted to say something several times but couldn’t say it. After almost two minutes he finally said, “Just now I said that He Qianjian’s hand was broken. That I think it’s retribution. Do you think I’m…..cold-blooded and ruthless?”

Jiang Chen was stunned for a moment, then smiled and said, “Of course not, why do you think so.”

“Because I’m jealous of him.” He Qianmin looked at Jiang Chen stubbornly, and enunciated word by word: “Because he is better than me in everything, because he dominates me in everything, because I am insensible and in a rebellious period, because…..a lot of people think so, why don’t you think so.”

“Why do we have to think like this?” Huo Bo raised his eyes and said lightly, “Of course I have eyes to see for myself.”

Jiang Chen sighed, rubbed He Qianmin’s head and said, “There is no unreasonable hatred in the world. If you don’t like him, it’s because he did something that upset you.” He said softly, “Before you said, it happened quite a few times like the last time you got cut by a fruit knife, you hating He Qianjian, it must have something to do with this.”

He Qianmin was stunned for a moment, and then hesitated for a while before saying: “…..How do you know?”

Jiang Chen didn’t answer, but continued to ask, “Didn’t you tell your parents?”

“I did once.” He Qianmin lowered his eyelashes: “They didn’t believe it, and I haven’t said it since then.”

Shen Xu couldn’t help but interject, “What fruit knife? You mean that your elder brother purposely caused your injury, then why didn’t you say it?”

“Who would believe something without evidence.” He Qianmin laughed self-deprecatingly at himself and said, “If I told you that I had a car accident when I was twelve years old, and I was sitting in the back seat with He Qianjian at the same time. He sat on the left and I on the right, but when the car in front hit us, I suddenly switched places with him out of thin air, would you believe it?”

Shen Xu was a little hesitant, looked at Jiang Chen and then at Huo Bo, unable to see what they were thinking, so he could only probe: “…..How to switch places out of thin air? Teleportation? Superpower? Could it be that back then you…..”

He Qianmin interrupted Shen Xu: “At that time, I was hurt too seriously, and it left a psychological shadow, especially when I was seriously injured to the point of being unable to move, I saw He Qianjian who was only slightly scratched, so I was stimulated and the dissatisfaction accumulated over my elder brother exploded all at once, but the accumulated negative emotions were not conducive to the recovery of the body, so my brain started to protect itself and fabricated that memory privately. Is that what you want to say?”

Shen Xu said dumbly: “I…..”

Jiang Chen: “I believe it.”

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 Xu looked at Jiang Chen helplessly, and Huo Bo also raised his eyebrows in surprise.

He Qianmin trembled, and turned his head to stare closely at Jiang Chen’s eyes. After a few seconds, he turned his head and said, “Liar.”

“I saw it.” Jiang Chen said lightly, “I was the one who dragged you out of the car back then.”

Source of Calamity CH 036 Usefulness Value

“Am I seeing wrong?” Shen Li rubbed his eyes, suspecting that he was hallucinating.

If it was not a hallucination, how should this scene be explained?

Originally, Su Shiqing was sitting alone on the sofa. For some reason, he was now sitting next to Shen Yun and Shen Mu. Forget about Shen Yun. Shen Li knew what his second brother was like, that was simply a smiling character, but Shen Mu was not. Shen Mu was similar to himself, his emotions were written on his face.

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 Su Shiqing was sitting between the two of them, holding a teacup in his hand, and Shen Yun and Shen Mu were talking and laughing with him, the picture of harmony. Those who didn’t know better would have thought Su Shiqing was their younger brother.

Shen Li felt very uncomfortable, feeling as if his brothers had been snatched away.

“Anyway, it’s just because he is a guest.” Shen Li said stiffly.

Shen Zhen: “Oh, really? From now on, he will not be a guest.”

Shen Li glanced at Shen Zhen and felt that Shen Zhen did not have good intentions, but the scene in front of him was so disgusting to him, so Shen Li ignored Shen Zhen. He walked over swaggeringly, and sat down next to Shen Mu: “Third Brother , what are you talking about?”

Shen Mu smiled and said, “Shi Qing is talking about his past.”

Shen Li said sarcastically: “How long have you known each other? Now it’s Shi Qing? How very affectionate.”

Shen Zhen still sat alone on the other side, drinking tea with a smile, and when he looked up, he saw Shen Fu staring at him, so Shen Zhen stood up and walked to Shen Fu’s side.

“What I mean, you should understand, right?” Shen Zhen said gently.

Shen Fu said with a smile: “There is no one who knows the son like the father.”

Shen Zhen looked at Shen Li and the others, and chuckled lowly: “It is good if you understand what I mean.”

Shen Mu impatiently said to Shen Li: “What are you doing acting so crazy all of a sudden? Did Shi Qing offend you or provoke you? How old are you, yet you’re still as intolerant as a child?”

Shen Li was scolded and asked incredulously: “Third Brother, am I your younger brother or is he your younger brother?”

Shen Mu said coldly: “From today on, he is also my younger brother.”

Shen Li: “…..Say that again?”

“Don’t argue anymore.” Su Shiqing sat there, his neck tucked in, looking timid and frightened, and his body was even trembling slightly, like a little quail. “Please don’t quarrel over me.”

“Xiao Li.” Su Shiqing looked at Shen Li, his eyes full of sincerity, “If I did something wrong, I apologize to you, but don’t lose your temper at Ah Mu, what don’t you like about me? Could I change it?”

Shen Li scolded him in irritation: “Did I say you can talk? Can you shut up?”

“How do you talk?!” Shen Yun frowned, and he lectured Shen Li, “You bullied Shi Qing, yet Shi Qing apologized to you, what else do you want? Your temper is getting bigger and bigger. Do you even think that God is the boss and you’re the second-in-command? Apologize to Shi Qing!”

Shen Li pointed at his nose and asked incredulously, “Me? I apologize to him?”

“No, there’s no need to apologize.” Su Shiqing said quickly, “I must have done something wrong, so no need to apologize to me, Xiao Li, I apologize to you, I’m sorry, don’t be angry, okay?”

Shen Li laughed angrily.

Shen Mu: “Did you hear that? Why don’t you apologize quickly?”

Shen Yun: “You’re not very capable, but you have a big temper.”

“You are lecturing me because of him?” Shen Li pointed at Su Shiqing, “Do you still remember who your younger brother is?”

Shen Mu said impatiently: “You think we want you as a younger brother? I would rather Shi Qing be my younger brother.”

Shen Yun didn’t speak, but there was affirmation in his expression.

Shen Li suddenly felt that the sky was falling.

He turned his head to look at Su Shiqing.

This person had the face of a little white rabbit, but he had the abilities of a vixen. He gritted his teeth fiercely, wishing that Su Shiqing would die.

“I’ll be leaving first.” Shen Zhen put down the teacup.

Everyone’s eyes focused on Shen Zhen again, and Shen Zhen raised his eyebrows and said, “Su Shiqing will be left to you.”

“By the way.” Shen Zhen seemed to remember something, and added, “If there is any problem in regards to him, don’t come to me, I won’t take care of it.”

After saying this, Shen Zhen turned and left the Shen family.

With Su Shiqing around, it was enough to stir up the peace in the Shen family, but with Shen Fu and Shen Li around, Su Shiqing would not be able to live a good life in the Shen family.

As for Su Yutong and Su Jinghan, they were not ready to be used yet.

With a smile on the corner of Shen Zhen’s mouth, he felt that today’s foggy weather looked extraordinarily beautiful.

Letting Su Shiqing go to the Shen family, there would be no peace on both sides.

——

“Do you think this suit suits me?” Su Yutong was asking Su Jinghan. He was wearing a dark gray suit with a vest inside. It was very formal. He hadn’t dressed so formally for a long time.

Su Jinghan also changed into a black evening dress, showing her flawless back, and her hair was specially styled. She examined Su Yutong and said with a smile, “Very good.”

Su Yutong: “Damn, you look like a black widow.”

Su Jinghan threw a slap over: “Do you know how to talk? If you can’t talk, just shut up.”

Su Yutong touched the back of his head after being slapped, and grinned: “I didn’t expect that we still have today.”

It had been a long time since they entered a formal occasion. They had gone when they were young. Later, the Su family declined more and more, so they could only play with the children of the same status. The people they met were like that, and so their style was also lower and lower.

Su Yutong was so nervous he sprayed the wrong cologne, so he had to change out of his suit again, take another shower, and sprayed it again.

At the appointed time, Su Yutong went to get in the driver’s seat. Su Jinghan was talking to Father Su. Father Su was smiling and beaming with joy. He said to Su Jinghan, “Be careful when talking to people, don’t offend anyone.”

Su Jinghan: “Dad, I know.”

Father Su sighed: “Opportunities like this don’t come often, so we must seize them.”

Su Jinghan: “Anyway, as long as Su Shiqing gets out of this family, I will feel much better.”

She was very relaxed: “Dad, don’t help them, lest Young Master Shen find out, we can’t explain it.”

Father Su waved his hand: “Do you think your father has dementia? I know who is close and who isn’t.”

Su Yuan and Su Shiqing, these two were the leeches of the Su family. They have never made any contribution to the family. Apart from looking for trouble, they possessed no positive traits. They were simply walking trouble magnets.

In the past, Father Su was afraid of offending Qin Yue, but Qin Yue would not give any benefits to the Su family, only to Su Yuan.

Father Su was not a fool, Shen Zhen could help his children, but Qin Yue only wanted to lift up the social status of Su Yuan’s branch of the family, and now that Shen Zhen was following Qin Xing, Father Su knew how to choose.

The sky was getting dark, the whole city became brightly lit, neon lights flickering. There were crowds of people on the streets, and music was playing in the shops on the roadside. Only at this time could the office workers relax.

When Shen Zhen arrived at the hotel, he walked into the lobby and saw the Su family siblings sitting on the sofa waiting for him. They were dressed very grandly, a little too grandly. As soon as they saw Shen Zhen, they stood up quickly, with somewhat reserved expressions and behavior.

“Relax.” Shen Zhen took off his coat and handed it to the waiter, while saying to Su Yutong and Su Jinghan.

Su Jinghan said, “We won’t cause you any trouble, will we?”

Shen Zhen gave her a meaningful look: “Just don’t be like Su Shiqing.”

Su Jinghan shook her head like a rattle: “Of course not.”

Su Yutong curled his lips: “Whenever I see Su Shiqing I want nothing more than to could smash his dog head in.”

“Whose dog head are you going to smash?”

Shen Zhen turned around and looked at the source of the voice.

A man came out from behind the pillars in the hall. He was wearing a fine white suit. He appeared to be of mixed race, with black curly back, deep eyes, strong features, and a kind of wild beauty. He was tall and had long legs so when he walked over it brought a sense of oppression.

Su Yutong: “…..Chu Haoyi…..why are you back?”

Chu Haoyi sneered: “If I didn’t come back, how could I hear what you said? I was wondering why Shi Qing doesn’t live in the Su family’s house now, so it was your doing? You and your sister have been bullying him since childhood, and you can’t see Shi Qing live well. You have already grown so big, yet your mind is still so small.”

Su Jinghan was a little dazed the moment she saw this man, but she soon came back to her senses. She took a step forward, stood in front of her younger brother, and glared at Chu Haoyi angrily: “What did you come back for? To support your Shi Qing ? He doesn’t need your support, the eldest young master of the Qin family holds him in the palm of his hand, what? Do you have the guts to cuckold eldest young master Qin?”

Chu Haoyi’s expression became gloomy: “I will deal with the matter between him and Qin Yue, so I don’t need you to remind me.”

Su Jinghan smiled and said: “Do you think he is pure like a white lily? Did you think he had been waiting for you back at home? Chu Haoyi, why don’t you look in the mirror and see how ridiculous your expression is now? You just brainwash yourself, after some time, he will really be a pure white lily.”

“Shut up!” Chu Haoyi roared unbearably with veins popping up on his forehead.

This shout frightened Su Yutong and Su Jinghan, they didn’t want toget in a physical fight witu Chu Haoyi here——any they might not even be able to win it either.

Chu Haoyi calmed down. When he saw Shen Zhen, he said in a cold tone, “I advise you not to socialize with these two siblings. Their temperament is so bad that you don’t want to try it yourself.”

Shen Zhen: “Oh, really?”

Chu Haoyi: “It will benefit you to stay away from them.”

Shen Zhen shrugged: “Why should I listen to you?”

Shen Zhen’s eyes were in a half smile, sarcasm on his face. Chu Haoyi didn’t know how to answer these words, and also felt that what he said was inexplicable, they were strangers just meeting by chance, whether the other was unlucky or not, or who they chose to interact with, it was not his place to care.

Chu Haoyi didn’t speak any more, but before he left, he took a look at the Su family siblings.

Su Yutong complained: “Why are we so unlucky, he actually returned to China.”

Su Jinghan: “Who knows…..”

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 )

However, Shen Zhen recalled the name Chu Haoyi, having some impression. He should be one of Su Shiqing’s many suitors. As for whether he caused trouble for Qin Yue, he couldn’t remember it. He couldn’t help it, Su Shiqing had too many suitors. When he read the book, he didn’t look too carefully, and everything that had nothing to do with him he just scanned briefly.

What kind of role did Chu Haoyi play in the book?

Was he a minor character, or a big one?

If he was an important character…..Shen Zhen rubbed his chin, maybe he was worth using.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 270 First Life Part 2

He clearly knew that he was dreaming, and vaguely guessed why the “Tao Mu” in this life turned into Shen Yu. Tao Mu, who was even more curious about what would happen next, calmed down and watched the development of the dream patiently.

“Tao Mu” cried for a long time in the bathroom, and when he finally returned to the set with red and swollen eyes, everyone had almost finished their lunch. “Tao Mu” missed the time to get the boxed lunch, and it was the unit manager who scolded him just now who kindly helped “Tao Mu” get a boxed lunch. It was just that “Tao Mu” stayed in the bathroom for too long, and the boxed lunch was already cold. In order to please his childhood friend, Yao Wenxiao ordered all the dishes according to Shen Er’s taste. Shen Er was from Shanghai, so he was more used to eating Shanghainese food. Shanghainese food was originally in the style of thick oily red sauce, and so the taste was a bit greasy when it was cold. Of course, the chef’s skills were extraordinary, “Tao Mu” still gobbled down the boxed lunch. He could also hear the other staff members of the production team flattering Yao Wenxiao and the Second Young Master Shen. Saying that Yao Wenxiao was straightforward and generous, and said that although Second Young Master Shen came from a wealthy family, he was able to endure hardships. He didn’t even need a stand-in for filming wire and fight scenes, and he could even ride horses and shoot arrows. He was indeed a noble son from a true wealthy family. The foundation was simply stronger than those idol stars who just rely on their faces to make a living.

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 )

“Tao Mu” curled his lips, disapproving. He felt that Shen Er was just born well, knew how to reincarnate, and had such a pair of rich and powerful parents, so he had the time to learn so many things. For someone like him with a bad fate who was born as an orphan, he had to work hard to survive. The reason he could even complete the nine-year compulsory education was by relying on national policies. And it was a luxury to even go to high school, let alone go to university.

It was obvious that they looked down on people from above, and because they had money to buy people’s hearts, everyone flattered them like they were blind. They didn’t even care about what was right or wrong. It was clearly not his fault, but he was forced to apologize. And he was almost kicked out of the crew just to please them. “Tao Mu” became more and more sad and indignant as he thought about it. He ate the last mouthful of the boxed lunch, but before he had time to even drink a sip of water, he was called to work by the props team.

“Tao Mu” accidentally got a side stitch. Clutching his stomach, he complained of pain, and his face even turned pale from the pain. Seeing this, the assistant director in charge of props and scenery stopped “Tao Mu” from working, and told him to find a corner to rest and come back later.

“Tao Mu” nodded again and again, expressing his thanks, but even more disapproving in his heart. He felt that it was the prop master’s fault that he would get a stitch in his side. Who would force someone to do work while they were still chewing rice grains right after eating? It was simply oppressive child labor.

“Tao Mu” continued to be aggrieved, completely forgetting that the reason why he ate later than others was all because he stayed too long in the bathroom. Besides, the crew had a schedule for filming. When to shoot and what scene to shoot, the prop team must drive out the set props first, so as to ensure the smooth progress of the follow-up shooting work. When one was in a hurry, it was not uncommon for one to work all day hungry, let alone work immediately after eating.

Of course “Tao Mu” would not consider these things. Holding his stomach and hiding in the corner to be lazy. In fact, when the prop master asked him to rest, “Tao Mu” didn’t hurt so much anymore. But it was a fool who would not rest when they were able to. “Tao Mu” was a self-proclaimed smart person, how could he do such a stupid thing.

So this afternoon, “Tao Mu” leisurely shirked his work. Seeing Second Young Master Shen, who was praised and flattered by the entire crew, exchanging moves with the martial arts director and martial arts stand-ins until late into the night, more and more he felt that there was something wrong with Second Young Master Shen.

When obviously he could use a stand-in to film and it was fine to just pose for a few camera takes in front of the camera, but that Second Young Master Shen had to go battle in person, so he was covered in bruises and rub medicine every day. He heard that when the medicine was applied to him, he lost his temper with his assistant because it hurt too much. Wasn’t this the act of an idle person with nothing better to do? He caused the injuries to himself, what right did he have to lose his temper with his assistant? Were assistants not human? Was it wrong to help him apply the medicine with a kind heart?

“Tao Mu” commiserated with Shen Er’s assistant in private, and even found opportunities to try and get close to Shen Er’s assistant. When he learned that Second Master Shen’s assistant was actually a classmate of his at the same school, but because his family was short of money, so he came to work as an assistant for Shen Er temporarily, he became even more indignant.

“How can he do this? Since you are classmates, why didn’t he just lend you money if you are short of money? He also asked you to be his assistant. Isn’t he bullying people?”

“Why do you think this?” The little assistant looked at “Tao Mu” strangely, and couldn’t help but defend Shen Er: “Don’t you have to pay back the borrowed money? Besides, how can this be about money? I am studying advertising planning. It is very helpful for my profession to have the opportunity to personally experience how a film crew shoots. As the saying goes, it is better to teach a man to fish than to give him a fish, and I have to thank Shen Yu for giving me this opportunity.”

Shen Er’s classmate was named Fu Ran, and like Shen Er, he was a top student of Fudan University. It was just that Shen Er was from the Economics Department, and Fu Ran was from the Advertising Department of the School of Journalism. The two were even roommates. Because of his family relationship, Shen Er had been pampered since he was a child and had never suffered much. His temper was a bit arrogant, but he was still easy to get along with in front of family and friends.

Fu Ran’s family was poor, and when he first knew that there was such a big Buddha as Shen Er living in his dormitory, he was very worried. He was afraid that if he accidentally offended the rich young master, or accidentally damaged Shen Er’s things, he wouldn’t be able to pay for it. At that time, he literally trembled over even taking a breath in the dormitory. But as a result, after getting along day and night, Fu Ran found that although Shen Er’s temper was not very good, there was nothing to complain about his character.

He never looked down on others just because his family was rich, let alone show off his wealth deliberately in the dormitory. Just like ordinary people, he skipped classes and stayed up late to play games, and rushed to cram before exams. And his personality was very attentive and considerate, he looked cool and domineering, but his heart was actually very soft. Take Fu Ran becoming his assistant for example, it was because Shen Er accidentally learned that Fu Ran didn’t plan to go back to his hometown during the summer vacation, and instead wanted to distribute flyers outside or work as a cashier to earn tuition and living expenses, so he took the initiative to ask.

“Since you want to take a summer job, come and be my assistant. I’m going to make a drama in the summer vacation, and I just need a life assistant. I’ll give you 8,000 yuan a month, and you join me in the crew. Aren’t you studying advertising? You will have a chance to discuss with the director how to shoot.” When Shen Er said these words, Fu Ran was very embarrassed. It was nothing else, he just didn’t think he was worth 8,000 yuan. One must know that many seniors who graduated from senior year found their first job with a monthly salary of only three or four thousand yuan. What virtue and ability did he, Fu Ran, have to actually make that much money right off the bat.

Fu Ran knew that Shen Yu gave this salary because he had already calculated the total cost of his tuition and living expenses, but Fu Ran felt that he could not agree.

Then Shen Er said again: “You don’t have to feel embarrassed. There must be a reason for me to give this number. You will know when the time comes. As the boss, I have a lot of peculiarities. I will be the one embarrassed if I give less.”

Hearing what Shen Er said, Fu Ran had no choice but to accept the job for now. So he came to H Town with doubts, and secretly thought that if the job was particularly easy and he could also learn something, he would definitely not be able to ask for so much money. In the end, it was not until he got to work officially that he found that Shen Er wasn’t lying at all. After work at two o’clock in the middle of the night, he still dragged Fu Ran to practice lines with him, and then at five o’clock in the morning he had to drive to the breakfast shop to buy a breakfast that matched Shen Er’s taste. And that was just the easiest of his work responsibilities.

The most important thing was that Shen Er, who was addicted to filming, was particularly emotionally unstable. He was not professionally trained, and he had no acting experience. It was the first time he had acted as a male lead, so he was naturally under great pressure. Because Shen Er was the kind of character who must win even if he played a children’s game. So even if he entered the entertainment circle to play around, he must still play above the standard line.

So in this case, in order to relieve the pressure, Shen Er sometimes “tormented” the people around him——for example, when he couldn’t sleep in the middle of the night he would suddenly call the director to see the film footage. When Fu Ran brought the film footage over, he would look through it frame by frame, and retake the parts he was not satisfied with the next day. So much so that the entire crew kept reworking the same scenes. At the beginning, everyone complained, but once they got used to Shen Er’s behavior, they would feel that this kind of person was actually very pure and rare.

One didn’t need to think about financial pressure, life pressure, and messy things like interpersonal relationships. One just had to make sure to do the thing at hand well. Fu Ran felt that “the heart of a child” was the most appropriate way to describe Shen Yu.

Just like a large beast that looked very lethal, it might be scary at the beginning and you dared not approach it, but once you got used to it and looked at it for a long time, you would feel admiration and even dependence in your heart. Feeling very lucky to be able to walk behind this kind of person. Because all the wind and frost on the way forward were endured by him alone, you only need to stare at his back and walk forward with one heart and one mind. When you suddenly come back to your senses, you would be surprised to find that you have already climbed to the top. And you could see more beautiful and magnificent scenery.

Fu Ran also heard about the conflict between “Tao Mu” and Yao Wenxiao. He knew that “Tao Mu” was an orphan. He was only seventeen or eighteen years old this year. He was about the same age as them but he couldn’t go to college but had to go out to make a living. He felt that it was not easy for this child, so he kindly advised him: “Don’t treat Shen Yu with prejudice, he’s actually a really nice guy.”

“Tao Mu” sneered secretly. He felt that Fu Ran was also the kind of superficial person who “gained benefits so had to return the favor”. Because he took Shen Er’s eight thousand yuan, he felt that Shen Er was a good person. But in fact, for a person like Shen Er, what was eight thousand yuan? It was just a single meal’s money. It sounded so good on the surface, but it was just enslaving his classmate. Only a person like Fu Ran would be grateful. Perhaps in Shen Er’s mind, that he could spend money to hire a top student from Fudan University to be his assistant and be able to boss him around was actually a point of pride!

Thinking of this, “Tao Mu” suddenly felt something was off: “I heard from other crew members that the Second Young Master Shen is only 18 years old this year, why is he already in college?”

“He is actually not yet eighteen! Shen Yu’s birthday is on July 7th. Speaking of which, he will celebrate his birthday this year with the crew.” Fu Ran smiled before answering “Tao Mu”: “I heard that Shen Yu went to school two years earlier. Because the eldest son of the Shen family is a child prodigy who skipped grades all throughout school, graduating from a well-known foreign university when he was less than twenty years old. Then he returned to China to formally take over the business of the Shen Group. Shen Yu admired his elder brother very much, it’s just that in his own words, his brain is not as smart as his elder brother’s. So he went to school two years earlier to try to follow in his elder brother’s footsteps.”

“Tao Mu” didn’t hear what Fu Ran said afterwards, and asked in a daze: “The Second Young Master Shen’s birthday is on July 7?”

“Yeah!” Fu Ran nodded and asked curiously, “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing!” “Tao Mu” shook his head absentmindedly. He just didn’t expect such a coincidence. That Second Young Master Shen’s birthday was actually exactly the same as his birthday.

He heard from the director of the orphanage that when he was picked up, he was wearing a bracelet on his arm with his date of birth on it, which was also July 7th!

“Tao Mu” looked at the film set with a complicated face. At Second Young Master Shen who was so tired that he was sweating profusely, and even his makeup was worn off. And after applying his makeup, he still went back to exchange moves with the martial arts instructor.

The two people were born on the same day in the same year, one was an orphan who was tragically abandoned by his biological parents, and the other was the noble young master of a wealthy family. One was a pitiful person who had to step into society after graduating from junior high school and struggled to survive after experiencing the indifference and disdain of the world. The other was a lucky guy who could enter school two years early, study at a prestigious university, and play the leading role so easily after first stepping into the entertainment circle to play around.

Why was God so unfair? That the ranks between people should be so clearly divided!

“Tao Mu” tightly clenched his fists, feeling as if a seasoning box had been spilled in his heart, all kinds of flavors exploded, sour, salty, bitter, spicy, except that there was no sweetness.

After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 035 He Qianjian Is Injured

When the school day was over, Jiang Chen received a call from He Qianmin.

He said with disappointment that something happened at home, and he couldn’t come to No. 1 High School today to find him. The dissatisfaction in his tone was obvious, and he was clearly not happy that family affairs had delayed his original plan.

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 )

Jiang Chen didn’t ask him what happened, he just said a few words to comfort him, waited until his little temper was appeased, and made an appointment for another time before hanging up the phone amidst the other’s reluctance.

Huo Bo was walking beside him, and seeing the smile in his eyes, he turned his head to look at Shen Xu, and asked silently, “Who is this?”

Shen Xu replied directly: “His little brother.”

“Yang Shengmao?” Huo Bo blurted out. In his memory, Jiang Chen only just had such a younger brother, but he also remembered that Jiang Chen didn’t like this younger brother very much. (TN: in China, cousins are referred to as brothers and sisters)

“No.” Shen Xu said: “A kid, he has nothing to do with Jiangzi, just always like to call him big brother.”

Seeing that Jiang Chen had hung up the phone, Huo Bo asked, “When did you get yourself a little brother?”

Jiang Chen said with a smile: “A long time ago. When he comes to No. 1 High School, you can meet him then.”

Hearing this, Huo Bo’s expression became even more astonished. Jiang Chen seemed aloof but was actually very easy to talk to, but being easy to talk  to didn’t mean it was easy to get close to him. He knew Jiang Chen very well. If Jiang Chen didn’t really treat the other as his little brother, he would never acquiesce to Shen Xu’s explanation of the identity of the person on the other end of the line. There was a set of old-fashioned and serious logic in Jiang Chen’s thinking. For example, for others appellations might be just a casual name to others, but to Jiang Chen, any appellation he recognized, all represent a kind of responsibility.

Huo Bo was surprised from the bottom of his heart. He was very curious about the reason why Jiang Chen got a little brother in the half a year he was gone, but he didn’t ask any more questions, he would just wait to see the other.

However, Huo Bo didn’t expect that he would meet him after school the next day.

Under the big tree at the gate of Yan No. 1 High School, He Qianmin was wearing the school uniform of Chenghua Junior High School, and was talking to a boy wearing the school uniform of Yan No. 1 High School with a cold face, seeming as if they were about to get in a fight.

Shen Xu glanced over and recognized He Qianmin at a glance. He grabbed Jiang Chen and said, “Jiangzi, it’s your little brother!”

Jiang Chen was talking to Huo Bo. Hearing this, he raised his eyes and saw He Qianmin. He Qianmin stopped after hearing Shen Xu’s voice. The boy next to him also glanced this way, then turned around and left.

“Big brother.” He Qianmin walked up to Jiang Chen in three big steps. After nodding to Shen Xu, he glanced at Huo Bo standing on the side.

“This is Huo Bo.” Jiang Chen hooked Huo Bo’s neck, and introduced to He Qianmin: “The other friend who grew up with me, you can also just call him brother.”

He Qianmin pursed his lips, obviously unwilling, but Jiang Chen looked at him, and still reluctantly he called out: “Brother Huo.”

Shen Xu was also unhappy: “When I met He Xiao Min before, why didn’t you tell him to call me brother! Why do you just tell him to call Huo Bo brother!”

He Qianmin rolled his eyes at him and didn’t speak, but the words “in your dreams” were clearly written on his face.

Shen Xu let out a “hey”, pointed at He Qianmin and said, “Jiangzi, look at your little brother, he actually looked down on me!”

Jiang Chen had a smile on his lips, as if he didn’t hear what Shen Xu said, he walked up to He Qianmin and said, “You guys go back first, I’ll take him to go eat.”

He Qianmin proudly raised an eyebrow at Shen Xu.

Shen Xu squeezed in between the two of them, raised his eyebrows at He Qianmin’s glare, and said with a smile: “What are you going to eat, I’m going too, and it’s the first time since Huo Bo came back to meet little brother He, eating a meal together is the only right thing to do.”

He Qianmin was dissatisfied: “Don’t always call me nicknames.”

“Unhappy? He Xiao Min? Min Min?” Shen Xu even amused himself, covered his stomach and laughed, “Min Min, how cute! From now on this brother will call you Min Min.”

He Qianmin’s face was sullen, with a cold light in his eyes. Shen Xu hid behind Jiang Chen, and said confidently: “If you call me brother, brother will stop calling you Min Min, come on, call brother.”

“Enough.” Seeing He Qianmin’s face getting darker and darker, Jiang Chen pulled out Shen Xu and nudged him lightly: “Don’t bully him.”

“How did I bully him!” Shen Xu was extremely wronged, and complained aggrievedly: “He has been bullying me, okay? I say Jiangzi, since you have a little brother, you have been so partial and bias! Fortunately, He Xiao Min is not a girl, I can hardly imagine what you would be like if he became your little sister!”

Huo Bo withdrew his subtle scrutiny, and said casually after hearing the words: “How hard is it to imagine?”

“Towards a little brother he is already like this, towards a little sister he would practically spoil her up to the skies.” Shen Xu said with a chuckle, and said: “But if it’s Jiangzi’s little sister, then I also don’t have any other way. Who told me that I don’t have a little sister? Jiangzi’s little sister is my little sister. And one must dote on one’s little sister, right?”

The corner of Huo Bo’s mouth twitched, he turned to Jiang Chen and said, “If you have something to do, go ahead first, Shen Xu and I will go back by ourselves.”

Jiang Chen pondered for a moment, and asked for He Qianmin’s opinion: “How about the four of us have dinner together?”

He Qianmin looked at Huo Bo, then at Shen Xu, and nodded: “I want to eat hot pot.”

“It’s so hot——” Shen Xu met He Qianmin’s eyes, and his words turned a corner: “But it’s the perfect time to eat hot pot.”

The four of them entered the hot pot restaurant they went to last time. This was the place where Jiang Chen and his friends had eaten frequently since junior high school. He Qianmin could not feel too obviously the kind of tacit understanding that seemed to be born from not needing to verbalize anything or understand the other when it was just Shen Xu before. But now seeing the three of them ordering food, although their words and actions were very ordinary, they seem to have an aura that excluded others.

He Qianmin swallowed the words on the tip of his tongue. He pursed his lips slightly, lowered his eyelashes, and suppressed the sudden feeling of disappointment in his heart.

Don’t know why, but he always felt that he should be the person who have the closest and most tacit understanding with Jiang Chen, but the reality was that even though no one here rejected him, he was still invisibly rejected by the tacit understanding formed from a friendship of many years.

Shen Xu was the first to notice He Qianmin’s abnormality. He paused the hand that was checking the menu, and called Jiang Chen in a low voice.

Jiang Chen was talking to Huo Bo in a low voice as Shen Xu usually did the ordering. He was very familiar with his and Huo Bo’s tastes. Occasionally, when he encountered a new dish and was not sure whether he wanted to eat it, only then would he ask them. So hearing his voice, Jiang Chen subconsciously thought that he was struggling with which new dish, and Huo Bo was the same.

The two spoke almost simultaneously:

“Order it.”

“Order if you want to eat it.”

Shen Xu clicked his tongue and tilted his chin slightly to one side, motioning him to look at He Qianmin.

Jiang Chen turned his head puzzled, and saw that He Qianmin hung his head, not knowing what he was thinking. He froze for a moment, and then remembered that he was only talking to Huo Bo just now, and didn’t ask him what he wanted to eat: “Qian Min, what do you want to eat?”

He Qianmin raised his eyes, glanced at him, then lowered his eyes, and said casually, “Whatever’s fine with me.”

Jiang Chen didn’t think about it too much, he looked away and said to Shen Xu: “Order more beef, see if there is any sweet and sour crispy meat today, and order one dish too.”

“Okay.” Shen Xu beckoned to the waiter, and after ordering the crispy meat, seeing Jiang Chen continuing to talk to Huo Bo again, he sighed in his heart, got up and handed the menu to He Qianmin: “See if there is anything else you want to eat.”

He Qianmin scanned it over casually, and was a little surprised to find that he had ordered all the dishes he liked, and handed the menu back: “That’s enough.”

Shen Xu nodded, handed the menu to the waiter, turned around and saw that He Qianmin was still looking sullen, and so he struck up a conversation: “En…..you are in the third year of junior high school right, that means you are about to take the high school entrance examination. Are you under a lot of pressure?”

Facing such an official and polite topic, He Qianmin didn’t react much, and just said lightly: “It’s okay.”

Shen Xu laughed dryly, “Hahaha indeed, you are seventh in your year ranking, and you can go straight up to Chenghua’s high school division, so there is really no pressure.”

He Qianmin was silent for a few seconds, and then said in a slightly lower voice: “I’m not going to study in Chenghua.”

“Not in Chenghua?” Shen Xu was a little surprised, “Then where do you want to go for high school?”

He Qianmin glanced at Jiang Chen who was still talking with Huo Bo, pursed his lips, and said, “I haven’t decided.”

But Shen Xu became interested, and said enthusiastically: “I heard from Li Xiao before that your family doesn’t seem to be allowed to go abroad. It seems that it is indeed meaningless to study in Chenghua. You have been in a private school the whole time. You can try a public one. Our Yan No. 1 High School is not bad, and you can go to the same school as your big brother, how about it?”

After Jiang Chen and Huo Bo finished talking, they happened to hear Shen Xu’s words. He thought for a moment, looked at He Qianmin, and said seriously: “Shen Xu is right, if you don’t want to continue in Chenghua, come to Yan No. 1 High School.”

He Qianmin didn’t speak, and Shen Xu said: “Come to Yan No. 1. When the time comes, us brothers will cover you. And with your big brother Jiang Chen here, you don’t have to worry about your grades. There is also me and your brother Huo. I will take you to eat and play with you. And your brother Huo will let you walk sideways in Yan No. 1.” (TN: walk sideways: do whatever you want and don’t care about any rules or what others think)

He Qianmin quietly glanced at Jiang Chen whose gaze was on him, then looked away and said, “Do you want me to come to Yan No. 1 High School?”

Jiang Chen: “I do.”

The corners of He Qianmin’s mouth slightly raised, but he quickly suppressed it. He lifted his chin slightly and said, “Then I’ll come to Yan No. 1 High School.”

“Okay, when the time comes, us brothers will take you to play, and…..” Halfway through the conversation, the waiter brought over the hotpot soup base. Shen Xu got up and said, “I’ll make the sauce, what do you want to put, I’ll make it for you. “

“Coriander, garlic paste, sesame oil and hot sauce.”

Shen Xu glanced at Jiang Chen, then looked at He Qianmin, stroked his chin and said, “As expected of one who calls Jiangzi big brother, your tastes are the same, okay let me——”

“Change to another.” Jiang Chen interrupted him: “Your wound hasn’t healed yet.”

He Qianmin was stunned for a moment, and Shen Xu remembered that he still had bandages wrapped around his arm. He was afraid that the child would refuse, so before he could speak, he said, “Then I’ll make you a non-spicy one. Believe in this brother’s skill in making sauces, it’ll definitely be delicious.”

He Qianmin pursed his lips: “I want to eat spicy.”

Hearing this, Jiang Chen finally noticed that He Qianmin’s mood had not been high all this time. He glanced at his left hand, which was lightly grasping the injured right arm, and guessed, “What’s the matter? Your hand is still uncomfortable? Or is there something else that is making you unhappy?”

He Qianmin’s eyelashes flickered slightly, pressed down the corners of his mouth that was about to rise, and shook his head: “No.”

Jiang Chen: “Because of what happened back home yesterday?”

He Qianmin pursed his lips: “No, it’s none of my business, why get unhappy.”

Shen Xu came over with a light sauce dish, and just happened to hear this sentence, and asked curiously: “What are guys talking about?”

The corner of He Qianmin’s mouth twitched. He looked at Jiang Chen and then at the bowl in front of him, after a while, he said, “It’s nothing.”

Jiang Chen was thoughtful, Huo Bo glanced at He Qianmin, and said to Jiang Chen while ordering the food: “You make up lessons on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights, and you have to help me make up lessons on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, will it be too much?”

“No.” Jiang Chen withdrew his gaze and looked at Huo Bo: “Helping you make up lessons is also a refresh of my knowledge, and…..”

“Big brother.” He Qianmin suddenly interrupted the conversation between the two, and when Jiang Chen looked over, he said, “He Qianjian’s right hand was broken by someone.”

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 )

His words had no beginning or end, it could be said that they came out of the blue, but Jiang Chen was not surprised at all, and calmly answered, “What do you think?”

He Qianmin’s left hand on his right arm curled, pinching the protruding bandage, lowered his eyes and said, “If I say it’s retribution, do you think I lack compassion and take pleasure in other’s misfortunes?”

Before Jiang Chen could speak, Huo Bo suddenly said, “He hurt your arm?”

Source of Calamity CH 035 Cute Like A Husky

At 6:30 in the morning, Shen Zhen woke up from his sleep. He stepped on the carpet with bare feet and opened the curtains to look outside. The building he lived in was in the very center of the city. Every night, the lights were bright and the night scene was dreamlike. In the morning, the sky was foggy, the beautiful scenery disappeared, and the buildings looked plain. Shen Zhen yawned at the window, and turned on the water to wash and brush his teeth while still in just underwear.

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 )

Mama Zhang had already prepared breakfast. Seeing Shen Zhen come out, she reminded, “The temperature is cooling down again, you should wear more, don’t catch a cold.”

The temperature inside was just right, Shen Zhen said, “Got it, I’ll go out in a down jacket, and I won’t come back for lunch at noon.”

Mama Zhang had already eaten, she picked up a roll of yarn and sat on the sofa, wanting to knit a scarf for Shen Zhen.

When Shen Zhen was putting on his shoes in the walkway, he kept staring at Mama Zhang, thinking of his own mother.

Opening the door and going out, Shen Zhen thought to himself, he didn’t even remember what his own mother looked like.

Walking downstairs, Shen Zhen saw Su Shiqing waiting on the side of the road at a glance. Su Shiqing seemed to be in a good mood. He was talking on the phone with someone, with a smile on his mouth, affection in his eyes, and even his eyebrows were beaming.

Shen Zhen walked over, Su Shiqing noticed Shen Zhen, and then said to the person on the other end of the phone: “I have something to do, I’ll call you after the matter is settled.”

Something seemed to be said on the other line, Su Shiqing replied with a smile: “Okay, I wll remember, and you should also remember to have breakfast, I will hang up first.”

He hung up the phone, then turned to Shen Zhen and said, “Xiao Zhen, you’re here.”

Shen Zhen didn’t care who he was talking on the phone with, he wasn’t interested in Su Shiqing’s private life at all.

As for whether there was a patch of green grassland on Qin Yue’s head, it was none of his business.

“Let’s go.” Shen Zhen said, “Take a taxi.”

Su Shiqing was in a bright mood today. When he looked at Shen Zhen, he even felt that Shen Zhen looked friednlier than before. He put on a familiar attitude and said to Shen Zhen: “Xiao Zhen, what kind of people are your parents? From now on, we will be brothers too, so we need to interact frequently.”

Shen Zhen sneered: “Don’t act like we are so familiar, I don’t know you well, if you have nothing to do, go play with your mobile phone, don’t talk to me, lest I go back on my word.”

As soon as Su Shiqing heard the words “go back on his word”, Su Shiqing shut his mouth in a sensible manner.

He glanced at Shen Zhen a little aggrieved, but soon calmed down again.

Why be angry with Shen Zhen, no matter what happened to Shen Zhen, Qin Yue would not love him, only love himself.

What was more, his “good friend” had also returned to China, and he was also going to be registered under the Shen family. His future would only get better and better.

At that time, if Shen Zhen was down on his luck and had something to beg from him, then he would also just ignore him.

Su Shiqing even imagined Shen Zhen begging himself in his mind. His mood instantly improved, and he the smile on his face remained in place when he got into the taxi.

Of course, Shen Zhen didn’t know what Su Shiqing was thinking, but Su Shiqing often acted mental, and Shen Zhen was used to it.

Of course the Shen family also knew about this, as the butler of the Qin family came to tell them the news. But they only knew that someone was coming to the Shen family, which was a big deal, but also not a big deal.

It was a big deal because once they were registered to the Shen family, it was equivalent to having one more person in the family.

It was not a big deal because, so long as the person arrived at the Shen family, they only needed to maintain a decent veneer of cordiality. However, it was impossible for them to treat that person like their own child.

But after all, it was a big event, so the Shen family got up early and dressed very formally.

Shen Fu wore a Chinese tunic suit, holding his dragon-headed cane, and his three sons followed behind him. Shen Fu turned his head to look at his sons. His sons had grown up and had their own thoughts. He pretended not to know, but it didn’t mean he was really demented.

Of these three sons, the second child, Shen Yun, was too timid, the third child, Shen Mu, was too reckless, and the fourth child, Shen Li…..this child hadn’t matured at all yet.

Shen Fu sighed.

If it wasn’t Shen Zhen who he sent away at that time, maybe it would be a different situation now.

Shen Fu himself did not expect that the Qin family would raise Shen Zhen like that.

Haggling over every cent, every grievance must be repaid, but he was also cool-headed enough and well-organized enough.

There was a wolf in Shen Zhen, which was what the Shen family lacked now.

However, it was useless to regret now, after all, Shen Zhen’s heart was not with the Shen family now, no matter how well he did for himself, the Shen family would not get any benefit.

Since Shen Li was beaten up by Shen Zhen last time, he became a little cowed when he heard that Shen Zhen was going to bring someone over, so he whispered to his older brothers: “He won’t beat me again, will he?”

Shen Mu: “What are you afraid of, can’t you just hit back?”

Shen Li: “You don’t feel pain in your back when you stand and talk! It’s not you who got beaten up. Last time he beat me up, you didn’t even help me. Are you still my third brother or not?”

Shen Mu looked at Shen Li contemptuously: “He is about the same size as you, and yet you were one sidedly beaten up. No one would believe it even if it was spread to the public, yet you still want me to sideline the fight?”

Shen Li’s face was shamed by the words, and he snorted, feeling that he was no longer the most favored child in the family.

“Who is he going to bring here?” Shen Li was still a little curious, “Can’t the Qin family afford to support them? They are even stuffing them into our house.”

Shen Mu shrugged: “How do I know, anyway, it’s good that it isn’t Shen Zhen returning to the Shen family.”

Shen Li whispered: “I think it would be good for him to come back, he can help me beat people up.”

After all, he was also a brother born from the same mother. If Shen Zhen returned to the Shen family, he would go out to play with him in the future, and whoever dared to offend him he would let Shen Zhen beat them up. Thinking about it this way it was quite a good idea.

Shen Mu: “That’s all you will amount to.”

Shen Li turned his head, unwilling to talk to Shen Mu again.

However, Shen Yun said at this time: “Even if we beg Shen Zhen to come back now, Shen Zhen will not come back. You don’t know that Shen Zhen now has his own real estate company, an internet information company, and in addition to being supported and escorted by the Qin family. As if he would return to the Shen family.”

Thinking about it this way, the threat posed by Shen Zhen was much less.

Shen Li: “Oh…..that’s pretty good.”

Shen Mu also said, “A very good thing.”

Their attention was soon diverted from Shen Zhen.

Shen Li sneered and said: “I don’t know who is the guy who wants to be registered under our family? Does he want to take advantage of us? I’ll let him know just why the flowers are so colorful and bright.”

Shen Yun reminded him: “Being sent by the Qin family, maybe we even have to flatter him.”

Shen Li: “Tch…..”

When Shen Zhen arrived with Su Shiqing, the Shen family was already sitting in the living room. The butler led Shen Zhen in. Su Shiqing kept looking around at the villa. Of course, it was not as big as the Qin family manor, but it was much better than the Su family’s house. The Shen family was a nouveau riche, but its foundation was unstable, so similar to an upstart.

Although the Su family was old, they had no money. Without money, they had no right to speak or status.

Su Shiqing looked around, and towards the Shen family he became more and more satisfied, making up his mind to build a good relationship with the Shen family.

“Xiao Zhen is here.” Shen Fu stood up and spoke to Shen Zhen with a smile.

Shen Zhen was as polite as facing a stranger: “There was a traffic jam on the road, and I came a little late, so I apologize for keeping you waiting for a long time.”

Shen Fu shook his head, and replied with a fatherly face: “Not a big matter, we were waiting for you at home, and there was no wind and sun. Please have a seat.”

This time, the treatment was completely different from the last time.

The Shen family knew the interests involved, and they were not fools.

Shen Zhen’s status had risen, and it was not that they had no benefits at all.

At least now that they go out, when other people hear their surname was Shen, and if they ask about their relationship with Shen Zhen, a difficult business deal could be instantly easier.

In addition, Shen Zhen had never intended to return to the Shen family, and would not compete with his brothers for family inheritance. Of course, the Shen family’s attitude towards him would only be better.

“This is Su Shiqing.” Shen Zhen introduced.

Su Shiqing sat obediently by the side, and without being told, he greeted, “Uncle Shen.”

Shen Fu handed over a red envelope, which contained a card. He smiled and said, “Xiao Su is here for the first time, and Uncle didn’t prepare any greeting gifts. Take it and go buy something you like.”

Su Shiqing breathed a sigh of relief, it seemed that Shen Zhen’s family members were not as difficult to get close to as Shen Zhen himself.

“You guys talk first, I’m going to the bathroom.” Shen Zhen stood up, walked to face Shen Li, and said indifferently, “Get up and lead the way.”

Shen Li: “…..”

Originally, Shen Li wanted to yell at Shen Zhen for acting mental, but he was afraid of being beaten, so he stood up cowardly, and obediently took Shen Zhen to the bathroom, not understanding why Shen Zhen always focused on bullying him.

Did he have a face that invited bullying?

On the way to the bathroom, Shen Zhen suddenly said, “Do you have cigarettes? Go to the balcony to smoke one?”

Shen Li: “Okay, okay, I don’t even dare to smoke at home…..” Before the words finished, Shen Li was stunned, the person next to him was Shen Zhen! Not his other two older brothers.

“Go or not?” Shen Zhen stared at him with a half-smile.

Shen Li wanted to say no, but his itch for a smoke reared its head, his throat feeling itchy, and he finally gave in: “Go, go.”

Standing on the balcony, the two of them took a deep inhale of their cigarette with an intoxicated face: “Feels good!”

Shen Zhen held a cigarette in his hand, but didn’t smoke it. He lit the cigarette and let it burn by itself.

“The person I brought is not valued in the Qin family.” Shen Zhen said, “The Qin family doesn’t care what happens to him.”

Shen Li’s eyes widened: “What do you mean?”

Shen Zhen smiled and said, “I mean, I don’t like him very much.”

Shen Li understood: “You want me to help you take revenge?”

Shen Zhen patted him on the shoulder, smiled and said, “Don’t speak so harshly.”

Shen Li rolled his eyes: “Why should I help you?”

“It’s not helping me.” Shen Zhen looked at him with caring eyes for the mentally handicapped, “It’s helping yourselves. We will go back in five minutes, and you will find that he has taken your place in the Shen family.”

Shen Li looked at him with contempt: “Are you kidding me? A person who has only been at my house for five minutes can take my place? Why don’t you just say you can fly?”

Shen Zhen was calm and relaxed, “I never lie.”

When five minutes were up, Shen Zhen said to Shen Li, “Let’s go and see if I can fly.”

Shen Li didn’t believe it at all, and walked ahead confidently, he was the most favored one at home.

Shen Zhen said behind Shen Li: “Has anyone ever told you that you are actually quite cute?”

Shen Li’s ears were a little red, and he said sternly: “Don’t think that if you praise me, I will listen to you.”

Shen Zhen clicked his tongue: “As cute as a husky.”

Shen Li: “…..” Someone give him a knife!

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 269 First Life Part 1

Dazedly, Tao Mu knew that he had a dream. The dream unfolded with “Tao Mu” as the main viewpoint. However, everything that happened in the dream made Tao Mu feel both familiar and strange——what was familiar were the people, what was not familiar was the relationships between the people and the development of the plot in the dream.

“Tao Mu, why did you only come back now! Where are the boxed lunches? What time is it now? Hurry up! The whole crew is waiting for you! It’s been almost an hour. Why are you always so slow in everything you do?” In his field of vision, a dark and thin face appeared. Tao Mu had a good memory, and immediately recognized this person as the unit manager of the drama “Purple Cloud”.

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 )

“Yes, I’m sorry.” Tao Mu heard his flustered apology——no, it wasn’t his own voice.

Tao Mu’s heart jumped, and he was horrified to find that this voice was very familiar: “I didn’t mean it. I was almost hit by car when I went to pick up the boxed lunches——”

“Aiya, don’t explain anymore. Hurry up and put the food down! Everyone is starving.” While talking, the unit manager snatched the thermos box from Tao Mu’s arms and put it on the table beside him. After opening it, he immediately became angry: “Why is it only this? And why is this boxed lunch spilled? Tao Mu, what’s the matter with you? The boxed lunches are spilled like this, how do you have everyone eat this?”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it.” Tao Mu cried and apologized: “I was almost hit by a car when I came back——”

“If you were hit by someone, go to the person who hit you! Now I ask you, after making the boxed lunches like this, how will everyone eat it?” The unit manager cursed angrily: “Tao Mu, are you deliberately trying to make things difficult for me? You can’t even do such a small thing well, what else can you do——”

Before he could finish speaking, he suddenly heard an arrogant and rapid braking sound behind him. Everyone turned their heads and saw a red supercar parked by the side of the road. The car door opened, and a young man with hair dyed blond and wearing a three-piece dark purple suit stepped down. Taking off his sunglasses, he casually asked, “Where is Second Young Master Shen?”

The unit manager didn’t have time to question “Tao Mu”, and immediately moved over to apologize and said with a smile: “Mr. Yao, you are here. Second Young Master Shen has just finished a scene and is resting in his private lounge.”

Tao Mu’s pupils dilated, recognizing that this person was Yao Wenxiao. So the current plot development was that Yao Wenxiao came to visit the film set for Shen Yu?

But why was he dreamimg about these things?

Tao Mu was just thinking about it, when “Tao Mu” in the dream suddenly became excited, pointing at the arrogant Yao Wenxiao and said excitedly: “It’s him! It’s him who almost hit me just now. Only then did I spill the boxed lunches.”

“Who are you!” Yao Wenxiao raised a thick eyebrow, and glared at “Tao Mu”, full of hostility: “You can eat indiscriminately, but you can’t talk indiscriminately. When did I hit you? Hey kid, don’t try to scam me, aren’t you a little too tender?”

“I’m not!” “Tao Mu” had a wronged expression on his face, and he almost cried, “It’s clearly you who drove too fast just now and almost hit me when turning. It was because of you that I fell…..I recognize this car!”

“Hey! You’re still not done, are you?” Yao Wenxiao grabbed “Tao Mu” by the collar angrily, and was about to speak when he was interrupted by a voice from behind.

“Yao Wenxiao!”

Yao Wenxiao, who was originally arrogant and domineering, heard his name being shouted in a voice full of warnings, and immediately let go of “Tao Mu” sheepishly. He smiled ungratiatingly at the direction the voice came from: “Shen Er, you came?”

Tao Mu followed the source of the sound and saw a figure walking towards him surrounded by seven or eight assistants. When the person walked into view, Tao Mu was stunned!

How was this possible?!

Tao Mu was shocked to see that the person Yao Wenxiao called “Shen Er” actually had a face exactly like his. No, it should be said that this “Shen Er” turned out to be him——Shen Yu actually had Tao Mu’s face and turned into Tao Mu’s appearance?

Clearly aware that he was dreaming, but he didn’t know why he had such a dream, Tao Mu was suddenly dumbfounded.

In the dream, the plot was still going on.

“What’s the matter with you?” Shen Yu raised his eyebrows, and asked impatiently, “Who are you in conflict with this time?”

“You can’t blame me this time!” Yao Wenxiao snorted embarrassingly, and squinted at “Tao Mu” who stood next to him aggrieved and indignant: “He insisted that I bumped him with my car. Say, it is broad daylight, I’m not drunk, wouldn’t I know if I hit someone with my car?”

Shen Yu still frowned, his dark eyes moved slightly, and fell on “Tao Mu”.

“Tao Mu” straightened his back subconsciously, and said, “He really almost hit me. He drove too fast when he turned the corner, and knocked me down all at once. So even the boxed lunches were spilled.”

“Hey you kid——” Yao Wenxiao rolled up his sleeves and scolded, “You insist on biting me and not letting me go, are you?”

“Okay!” Shen Yu was already hungry after filming all morning. After waiting in the lounge for a long time, his boxed lunch was still not delivered. He sent his assistant out to inquire, and heard that Yao Wenxiao came to visit his film set, only to get in a quarrel with the assistant who delivered the boxed lunches. So Shen Yu got impatient and simply came out by himself. But he didn’t come here to break the lawsuit for these two people.

“Call your restaurant!” Shen Yu’s face was dark, and he ordered angrily: “Hurry up and send a batch of boxed lunches over.”

Yao Wenxiao thought that Shen Yu was taking the side of this nonsensical little assistant in front of him, and immediately became anxious: “No! Why? I didn’t bump into him!”

“I don’t care if you hit him or not. I’m almost starving to death!” Shen Yu glared at Yao Wenxiao angrily, and gestured at the set with his chin: “Look at how hungry everyone is? I hung on the wire all morning. In the afternoon there are still more scenes to film. Yet you still stand here and waste time with him. Do you want to starve me to death?”

“Besides, you came here under the pretense of visiting me, yet you didn’t even bring a cup of milk tea, and you even clipped our film crew’s boxed lunch assistant. Am I wrong to ask you to pay for a meal?”

“What’s the matter, do you still want this little assistant to repay the crew a meal?” Shen Yu said, sweeping Tao Mu with his long and narrow phoenix eyes, and said lightly, “Do I need to remind you how much he earns a month?”

Yao Wenxiao was speechless after being lectured, and like a husky that fell into the water, he complained with a whine: “I can’t say no to you, you only know to bully me! You knew how to bully me since you were a child! Do rich people have no human rights? So it’s always our fault once we get in a conflict with the poor?”

“Shen Er, you are too biased!”

Yao Wenxiao complained with his mouth, but his hands didn’t stop. He took out his mobile phone and called the manager of his restaurant’s branch in H Town, asking him to quickly make a few tables and deliver them over. Every dish was Tao Mu’s favorite.

During this period, Tao Mu was also adding his two cents on the side. This dish would not add onion and that dish would not add garlic. He even listed in detail which dish to add a certain number of spoonfuls of sugar and which dish to stew for a certain amount of minutes. In the end, he still did not forget to tell: “Have the master chef cook personally, I will not eat the food cooked by the little apprentices.”

Yao Wenxiao rolled his eyes: “Got it! As if you still need to say this.”

He complained again: “It’s just my bad luck. I came to visit your set, and I have to pick up the tab for a few meals.”

Shen Yu squinted at Yao Wenxiao: “Do you want me to wire you the money?”

Yao Wenxiao hurriedly apologized and said, “No, no, you eat, order whatever you want, if it’s not enough, keep adding more.”

Shen Yu snorted and said nothing more.

Seeing this, the unit manager who was standing at the side thanked him again and again: “Thank you, Mr. Yao, and thank you, Second Young Master Shen. If it weren’t for your help, the production crew would have had a hard time organizing the meal today.”

Each crew had a limited budget. A single meal cost at least a few thousand yuan. If Shen Yu and Yao Wenxiao didn’t take care of this matter, the unit manager and the assistant would have to pay for the meal. So the unit manager said this not only to compliment Shen Yu and Yao Wenxiao, he was also truly grateful.

When going out to work and earn a living, a few thousand yuan was no small matter. How many group extras in H Town earn less than 2,000 yuan a month! What was more, Yao Wenxiao was a wealthy young master with a generous hand, and the sum of the tables he ordered was at least 20,000 yuan. This was equivalent to giving the whole crew extra meals. So don’t even mention the unit manager, even the director and several other actors who rushed over after hearing the commotion thanked him repeatedly.

Only the other person involved stood there reluctantly, with a face full of class struggle.

Seeing this, the unit manager secretly poked “Tao Mu” in the back to let “Tao Mu” also hurry up to thank him.

However, “Tao Mu” just bit his lip and stood there indignantly, head raised and neck stiff. He felt he had done nothing wrong. It was Mr. Yao who was wrong. Why drive the car so fast, wasn’t it because he was relying on how much money his family has? What a big deal!

“It’s not my fault. He almost hit me in the first place!” “Tao Mu” didn’t take it seriously when he saw the direct and indirect hinting gestures from the unit manager, and spouted complaints.

“Hey you kid——” Yao Wenxiao felt uncomfortable when he saw “Tao Mu” like that. He was just about to roll up his sleeves and show his teeth, but the director standing on the side quickly said, “What’s the matter with this person? Don’t you even know to admit your mistakes? Who hired this person, fire him now!”

“That’s right!” Yao Wenxiao put his hands on his waist and lifted his chin, shouting to the sky: “Fire him——”

Before he could finish speaking, Shen Yu slapped him on the head.

“Enough! Towards a child, why are you quibbling with him?” Shen Yu pressed his stomach impatiently, his mood becoming worse because of hunger.

Seeing this, the director and several other actors standing by the side smiled and flattered him: “Second Young Master Shen is really kind and generous. Since you said that, then this matter…..”

As the director spoke, he looked at Yao Wenxiao again. After all, Yao Wenxiao was also an investor in this drama.

Yao Wenxiao covered the back of his head and sneered: “Who isn’t a precious baby here? Why can’t I quibble with him——”

Before finishing speaking, Yao Wenxiao received Shen Yu’s glare, and Yao Wenxiao could only keep silent, forcefully maintaining his respect: “Fine. Don’t quibble, don’t quibble. These days, doing good deeds must depend on the person, and I will treat this as a meal fed to the dog——”

Before he finished speaking, Shen Yu slapped his head once again: “How do you talk? Who are you feeding, who is a dog?”

Only then did Yao Wenxiao realize that his angry words just now were ambiguous, and immediately apologized with a smile: “No. I mean that this small assistant of your crew is a dog who bites the hand that feeds it, and doesn’t know good people. He is ungrateful, he is.”

Shen Yu didn’t bother to talk to him anymore. Clutching his stomach, he walked back to the lounge while surrounded by a large group of people. Yao Wenxiao ran along behind Shen Yu like a husky running in the wind. Not at all the arrogant and domineering attitude he had in front of “Tao Mu” just now.

The unit manager glared at “Tao Mu” who was standing there gloomily, and snorted coldly: “Why are you so incapable of doing anything? Let me tell you, it’s because you are so young and an orphan, which is quite pitiful that I let you in the crew as an assistant. But if you continue to be such a failure, and you make trouble for me, then you should piss off as far away as you can! I don’t want to be implicated by you. Do you hear me!”

“Tao Mu” was also full of grievances. He just felt that he had worked hard all day, but in the end he was almost hit by a car and then scolded, and was even almost kicked out of the crew. The only person who spoke for him also had such a condescending face, as if he didn’t take him seriously at all. Why? Why was it that everyone was about the same age, yet those people could do whatever they want with the help of their family background? Wasn’t it just because they were born with a golden spoon in their mouth, wasn’t it just because they were reincarnated into a good family?

“Tao Mu” was indignant and depressed. But he didn’t dare to offend the unit manager, so he could only nod aggrievedly. The unit manager didn’t want to see “Tao Mu”‘s gloomy face, so he waved his hand in disdain. Watching “Tao Mu” sobbing all the way into the bathroom with cold eyes, he shook his head involuntarily.

——When he first saw the child, he felt that the child was fair and pure. But as a result, after having more contact with him, he realized that this child was indeed pitiful, but the pitiful person must have something to be despised, and this old saying was absolutely true.

On the other side, “Tao Mu” who had sobbed in sadness all the way into the bathroom, now stood in front of the sink washing his face.

After experiencing that “people not matching” dream sequence just now, Tao Mu had already had some vague guesses in his heart. But when the dreaming Tao Mu saw “Tao Mu” with his own eyes in the mirror, as expected it was Shen Yu’s delicate and pitiful face, Tao Mu was still beyond shock.

What was going on?!

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 )

Tao Mu, whose brain almost short-circuited, was thinking hard in his dream. Suddenly, he thought of the countless lives of reincarnation and revenge that Shen Chen had described to him. Shen Chen said that he had experienced so many reincarnations that he could no longer remember the sequence of each life, let alone why there were so many reincarnations. However——

Looking at the face of “Tao Mu” with the face of “Shen Yu” in the mirror, Tao Mu suddenly had a moment of enlightenment as if in a trance. Maybe everything he saw now was the real source of so many reincarnations!
