Su Shiqing couldn’t believe that Shen Zhen would say such a thing, he still remembered the first time he saw Shen Zhen.
It was at a banquet. He went with his cousins. His father had no status in the Su family, and so he also had no status along with him. His cousins said that he was “small-minded and unsophisticated, and he would not ever be able to be presentable in his life.” He was always like a servant at home, anyone could order him around.

At the banquet, when he poured wine for his cousin, he accidentally spilled some out. His cousin was a hot-tempered person and immediately raised his hand to give him a slap.
They were used to doing this at home, and hadn’t ever thought to restrain it when outside.
It was just that the slap didn’t land this time.
Because Shen Zhen stopped him.
At that time, Shen Zhen was wearing a decent suit, his features exquisite like a painting, appearing indifferent and dignified. He didn’t have to say anything, and his cousin just ran away by himself.
It was the first time that Su Shiqing saw such a person. He seemed to be born at the top of the hierarchy. Su Shiqing envied and admired him very much. He told Shen Zhen about his experience and the injustice in his heart. When he said: “I feel like an outsider in the Su family”, Shen Zhen seemed to be moved by his words.
“Then come with me.” Shen Zhen said at that time.
Perhaps it was because no one took Shen Zhen away from the Qin family, so Shen Zhen took Su Shiqing away from the Su family. He couldn’t save himself, but he could save someone who was weaker than himself, which was a little bit of comfort.
After going to the Qin family, Su Shiqing met more people and saw the luxury and prosperity that he had never seen in the Su family.
He gradually became acquainted with Qin Yue, and he also found that Qin Yue treated him somewhat differently. Sometimes, Qin Yue preferred to choose him instead of Shen Zhen.
At the beginning, Su Shiqing still felt a little guilty. After all, Shen Zhen was the one who pulled him out of the fire pit, but he had intentions towards Shen Zhen’s beloved. However as time passed, his guilt disappeared completely, leaving nothing behind.
Both he and Shen Zhen came from a minor family, and they were both people who were not valued by their family.
Why was it that Shen Zhen could live so happily in the Qin family, while he had to depend on the favor of others to live?
Shen Zhen and Qin Yue grew up together, but Qin Yue chose him instead. Did that prove that he had something that was better than Shen Zhen?
Thinking of this, Su Shiqing suddenly felt that the door to a new world had opened.
Yes, he was no worse than anyone else. If Shen Zhen had it, he should have it too.
“Ah Zhen.” Su Shiqing cried and pulled Shen Zhen’s hand, “now only you can help me, you know what it is like for me in the Su family, do you have the heart to watch me…..”
Shen Zhen interrupted him: “Yes, I do have the heart.”
Su Shiqing was stunned, his mouth opened and closed several times, but in the end he couldn’t say a word.
“Rather than beg me, it’s better to beg Qin Yue.” Shen Zhen looked at his watch, and saw that there was only half an hour left before work hours started, “I still have to go to work, I suggest you go directly to T City to find Qin Yue.”
Su Shiqing said quickly: “My ID card has been taken away amd I can’t buy a plane ticket, I can’t go to T City, Ah Zhen, please help me, can you help me contact a car service?”
The card Qin Yue gave him was taken away by Qin Xin. When he came to the Qin manor, he was penniless, and the same was true when he left.
When he went back to the Su family, no one would give him a card at all. His parents had no money themselves, let alone give him money.
One had to take a plane to go to T City, but he couldn’t even afford the money for the plane ticket. But he also couldn’t stand the long journey by train or bus.
However, this time Shen Zhen didn’t respond to Su Shiqing’s words. He turned around neatly and left, and it happened that at this time Qin Shan had arrived to pick him up.
Su Shiqing chased after him a few steps, crying and shouting as if he was acting out a bitter scene from a movie: “Ah Zhen, please help me, I only have you as my friend left! Ah Zhen!”
Shen Zhen turned a deaf ear, opened the car, got in the car, closed the door, rolled up the window, the series of actions all completed in one go.
Qin Shan chewed gum and turned to look at the crying person crouching on the ground: “Is that Su Shiqing?”
Shen Zhen: “It’s him.”
Qin Shan rolled her eyes: “Auntie did a good job, he should have been kicked out of the Qin family long ago.”
Shen Zhen knew that Qin Shan had always disliked Su Shiqing, but Shen Zhen didn’t know the reason. After all, Su Shiqing was very likable in the Qin family. The servants of the Qin family all served him like he was a true young master of the Qin family and even Shen Zhen placed behind him.
“Has he offended you?” Shen Zhen asked.
Qin Shan started the car: “Well no, he doesn’t have such bad eyesight, I just hate him. I hated him the first time I saw him. Some people’s weak and delicate side is their own, some people’s weak and delicate side is for others to see, he’s the latter.”
Qin Shan snorted, “My dad’s mistress is just that kind of person.”
Qin Shan and Qin Meng’s father was also a rice bug. He didn’t do anything useful despite receiving the family’s money, and he couldn’t manage business. He and his wife used to be a loving couple, but it was only in the past few years that they found out that he also had another family outside, and the oldest illegitimate child was even the same age as Qin Shan.
It turned out that in the years when he and his wife were the most loving together, he already had a fickle heart.
However, the Qin family would not recognize the illegitimate children, nor would they even give them the surname Qin. Those illegitimate children could only follow their mother’s surname.
Qin Shan’s father didn’t have the courage to give his illegitimate son the surname Qin either.
However, in private, there was no lack of benefits that he fished for those illegitimate children.
Qin Shan sneered: “Men, hehe.”
Shen Zhen touched his nose and didn’t speak. Forget it, it was not like he would lose a piece of meat if he was shot by implication.
As soon as Shen Zhen arrived at the company, he went straight to his desk, but before he could even sit down, he saw Ye Min leading the supervisor over. The supervisor was a middle-aged man with a bad figure, fat head and ears, a big belly and the suit on him looked very unsuitable as well.
The supervisor didn’t know Shen Zhen, after all, the department manager never gave him a heads up.
“Xiao Shen, come with me.” The supervisor, surnamed Jiang, smiled like a Maitreya Buddha.
Shen Zhen felt quite irritable, he was just harassed by Su Shiqing and he was in a very bad mood, so he said, “If you have something to say to me, just say it here.”
After all, the supervisor was a middle-level leader. None of the employees below dared to talk to him like this, and his temper also came up. He scolded: “Shen Zhen, I give you face but don’t think you are a bigshot!”
Shen Zhen sneered: “You give me my face?”
The supervisor pointed at Shen Zhen’s nose: “You came to work in the company! You must correct your work attitude! Otherwise, no company will dare to let someone like you come to work. If you don’t want to work anymore, then leave now!”
“Do you have the right to fire employees?” Shen Zhen really didn’t have the patience to face such a person again, he said to the supervisor, “If your work attitude is to give gifts to the leaders during the New Year and holidays, to bring tea and water to the leaders, and after receiving bonuses to give half of it to the leader, then I really have a lacking work attitude.”
Their interaction didn’t avoid anyone, and all the employees could hear what Shen Zhen said.
The group of people applauded wildly in their hearts, but no one dared to stand forward tho show solidarity.
The leaders above could not see those at the bottom. As long as there was no problem with the performance table, the team leader and the supervisor have the final say as to whether the employees at the bottom had it good or bad. It could be considered that they covered the sky with one hand.
Everyone’s eyes were fixed on this side, and the supervisor was infuriated: “What are you looking at? Do you still want the year-end award bonus? Do you still want to have a good evaluation?!”
Project bonuses and year-end bonuses were reported by the team leader to the supervisor, and the supervisor would then report it to the department manager, who would then report to the department manager after screening.
No matter how well an employee did, so long as they offended the team leader and the team leader did not report upwards, they would not receive a cent of their deserved bonus.
No one would resist against money, and for the sake of money, they could only bend over to please people who they despise.
Shen Zhen: “Go to the department manager.”
He was really too lazy to talk.
People like the supervisor and Ye Min, who have benefited from the unwritten rules, must of course safeguard their own interests.
Shen Zhen wanted to grab meat from their mouths, it was no wonder they’re in such anxiety.
The supervisor was not afraid: “Let’s go, Xiao Ye, let’s find Brother Zhou.”
He called a familiar appellation such as ‘Brother Zhou’ just to let Shen Zhen know that the department manager had a good relationship with him and would definitely not help Shen Zhen.
If Shen Zhen knew the severity and voluntarily stepped back, the supervisor could take the opportunity to make him more obedient.
If Shen Zhen insisted on going to see Zhou Chengxiong, he would be humiliating himself.
Coincidentally, Zhou Chengxiong was in the company at this time, and he still didn’t know what happened. According to his assumption, he had personally put Shen Zhen in Ye Min’s work group in front of Ye Min, and Ye Min only needed to think a little to know that this newcomer was not to be offended. Ye Min might not be good at anything else, but his means to win over relationships was first-class. He should know that so long as Shen Zhen was won over, there would definitely be benefits.
But the result——
Zhou Chengxiong rubbed his temples at his headache and asked the supervisor, “What did you say?”
The supervisor said boldly: “This new employee named Shen Zhen has a bad work attitude, to the extent of giving Ye Min a serious headache. Such a person can’t stay in the company, I suggest firing, and I will report it upwards.”
Ye Min also said: “Brother Zhou, this Shen Zhen is unwilling to work. He is lazy every day, does not cooperate with his group members, and acts alone every day. Such a person is not suitable for working in the company.”
Zhou Chengxiong looked at Shen Zhen’s face, found that Shen Zhen’s expression was not very good, and said quickly, “What are you talking about! I think Xiao Shen is very good! Is there any misunderstanding?”
Shen Zhen sneered: “There’s no misunderstanding, it’s just that I don’t want to bring tea and water to Group Leader Ye, nor do I want to give Group Leader Ye red envelopes and flatter Group Leader Ye.”
Zhou Chengxiong broke out in a cold sweat.
He slapped the table and shouted, “That’s outrageous!”
The supervisor and Ye Min had happy expressions on their faces, yes, that’s it, scold him and tell him to get out of the company!
Zhou Chengxiong: “Jiang Chengxin! Ye Min! You both have seriously disappointed me! This is the company! It’s not a place for you to receive benefits!”
Supervisor/Ye Min: “Huh?”
Zhou Chengxiong: “I will inform you now that you have been fired, and three months’ salary compensation will be paid to you this month. You can pack your things now and get lost.”
The supervisor looked confused: “Brother Zhou?”
Zhou Chengxiong didn’t give him a chance to speak: “Get out! Go and pack up.
The supervisor was even more dumbfounded.
Zhou Chengxiong said to Shen Zhen at this time: “Mr. Shen, I’m really sorry. I didn’t know that the people below would do this. You see, I am also considered responsible for improper supervision. So please don’t…..”
The supervisor and Ye Min understood, this motherf*ker was not a person with a bit of backing, this motherf*ker was simply the crown prince who was visiting the common masses in secret.
Ye Min: “Mr. Shen, I can explain, it’s all Jiang Chengxin’s fault, he made me do this, he taught me!”
The supervisor looked at Ye Min angrily: “Ye Min, you can’t talk nonsense. I also took care of you because you were pitiful. Mr. Shen, I don’t have such a way of doing things! It’s all his fault, ruining my reputation!”
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
Shen Zhen looked at the dog eat dog scene in front of him, picked up the teacup, took a long sip of tea, and sneered.
If the knife did not fall on one’s neck, these people would not know how to be afraid.
AN: Supervisor/Ye Min: “I never ever thought this would happen QAQ”
