Ever since he was young, Qin Sheng had been living with his grandfather. Very few people could understand his feelings and circumstances. What he envied the most was that other children had happy families, but he only had his grandfather, so he was so touched when he felt the warmth that he never experienced before in Lin Family.
Grandfather was Qin Sheng’s only true relative. After his grandfather passed away, he was truly alone. To Lin Family, he just repaid their kindness.
When he was young, Qin Sheng always asked his grandfather where his parents were. When he was growing up, he gradually became used to his life, and finding parents became boring for him. He was glad that he had a grandpa, otherwise he would be an orphan.
To Qin Sheng, grandfather was like a high mountain, full of mystery and vicissitudes of life. He was a taciturn old man who was especially strict to Qin Sheng. He was also an old man who could be trusted and admired by anyone, and an old man who knew everything.
Qin Sheng didn’t know whether it was his grandfather accompanying him to grow up, or it was him accompanying his grandfather to get older. Until the day his grandfather left, Qin Sheng realized it was the former.
It had been more than two years. Today was the anniversary of his grandfather’s death. How could Qin Sheng not remember?
He just remembered it silently in his heart.
In hometown, the moon was always brighter and the wine was always better. When he was drunk, the unforgettable longing would surge to his heart, which was why he used all of his strength to shout out the words he wanted to say the most.
His three roommates knew his family background. They were aware that he had no parents and was raised up by his grandfather. That was why he had to work so hard during his college years. His three roommates said they would visit his grandfather after graduation to see which kind of old man could bring up a person like Qin Sheng.
However, Qin Sheng disappeared later, so there was no chance for them to do that.
“Boss, what’s wrong with your grandfather?” Yu Ke Fei was startled for a moment before he regained his senses. He said that he wanted to be the old man’s grandson as well, and asked Qin Sheng to bring him to Mountain Zhongnan to find the master.
Qin Sheng shook his head with a bitter smile. “He passed away two years ago.”
These words caused everyone to be stunned. They looked at each other in dismay, and the atmosphere turned sorrowful. They knew that the old man was Qin Sheng’s only family member.
Cao Yu Feng hugged Qin Sheng immediately, “Boss, after graduation, you three are the only ones I still keep in touch. You are Boss, not only because you’re ranked the first, but also because I admire you from the bottom of my heart. Although your grandpa is gone, you still have the three of us.”
“That’s right, Boss, you still have the three of us,” Yu Ke Fei and Xia Ding echoed.
The four friends embraced together and laughed out loud.
“Let’s continue to drink!” It was rare for Qin Sheng to be happy, so he would enjoy to the full.
The other three were not willing to be left behind, so they continued to drink.
The four of them kept drinking until they were unconscious and fell asleep on the floor …
Deep in the night, Tomson Golf Villa in Pudong, Han Guo Ping, whose hair had been completely white in a short period of time, could not fall asleep. At this moment, he was smoking non-stop in his study room. On the table was a bottle of Tianshui Alcohol that he had treasured for many years. The alcohol was not produced for many years. He obtained two bottled occasionally, thus he was reluctant to drink but keep them for years.
The room was filled with smoke. Han Guo Ping didn’t know how many cigarettes he had been smoking, but he felt that he had instantly aged decades of years, like an old man who had seen through everything.
This time, it seemed that he was really screwed.
The situation got increasingly serious, and Han Guo Ping was tangled more and more deeply. He knew that even if he went bankrupt, he would not be able to live the rest of his life in peace. His best ending would be to stay in a prison for ten years up, but he did not want that, nor could he endure that kind of life. His enemies would not let him go even if he was imprisoned.
Dust would return to dust, while soil would fall back to dust.
From the poor kid from Tianshui, Gansu Province to such a status today, he had enjoyed what he needed to enjoy and experienced what he wanted to experienced. There were no regrets in his life, and the only one he could not stop worrying was his daughter.
He knew that the moment he failed, it would be like a tree fell and monkeys would scatter away. All the assets he had accumulated over the years would vanish like smoke in thin air, and at that time, all of these would crush Han Bing.
Han Bing had not suffered much for all these years. She had always been under his protection to live a smooth life. Could she undertake all of these?
However, if he did not choose this path, he could not even protect her in the end. Those people had warned him time and time again. If he did not make a decision, they might really act recklessly.
Fine. Children had their own blessings. He remembered that every time his woman fought with him, she always said that she only wanted to live a normal life. Since that was the case, he would fulfill her wish.
As he sat on the sofa, drinking and smoking, Han Guo Ping continued to reminisce about his life. He owed a lot of people and was also owed by a lot of people. He could not tell the exact number.
Then he recalled the trip to Tibet over a year ago. The most interesting person he met should be Qin Sheng. He thought that they were strangers without intersections to each other, but he didn’t expect that the young man would actually come to Shanghai and find him. Whatever his intention was, Han Guo Ping thought highly of this young man.
There were some young people who weren’t lacking in strength, but opportunities and people who cultivated them. If it was ten years ago, he wouldn’t have minded cultivating this young man, but unfortunately, he wouldn’t have the chance.
By the time the sky turned white and a red sun gradually rose from the east, Han Guo Ping had finished his Tianshui Alcohol and his last cigarette.
He slowly stood up and opened the safety-box, taking out the Branning which was used for self-defense. Han Guo Ping wiped the gun with a complex look, then skillfully loaded the bullet.
Death was standing in front of him, just a step away. Finally, he mustered his courage to face it straightly.
Everything came to peace. Han Guo Ping ended his entire life that he did not know how to describe in this way.
Early in the morning, when Qin Sheng woke up, it was already nine o’clock. They had drank until three in the morning and the others hadn’t woken up yet. Qin Sheng crawled up with a splitting headache. He did not know whether he should cry or laugh when he saw the three people lying on the ground with weird postures.
Qin Sheng went to the bathroom to wash his face and clear his mind. Then he picked up the phone and noticed that there were more than ten missed calls, mostly from Han Bing at 6 or 7 in the morning.
He was a little confused. Why would Han Bing call him at that time?
Could it be that she encounter some sort of danger?
Thinking about that, Qin Sheng was worried of her. He immediately dialed Han Bing’s number, but her phone was turned off. Qin Sheng helplessly dialed other missed calls, and finally someone picked up.
“Is that Qin Sheng?” The other side asked without waiting for Qin Sheng to speak.
Qin Sheng frowned as he replied, “Yes. Who am I speaking with?”
“Chen Bei Ming. I am Mster Han’s driver. The Miss wants you to return to Tomson Golf Villa as soon as possible. The Entire Han’s Family has been in a chaos.”
Qin Sheng was puzzled, “What happened?”
“Mater Han is dead.” Chen Bei Ming said in a low voice.
Suddenly, Qin Sheng’s mind went blank. This news was simply too shocking, like a thunderbolt out of a clear sky.
Han Guo Ping was dead?
At this moment, Qin Sheng was full of doubts, but when he regained his senses, the other side had hung up the phone.
After calming down, Qin Sheng quickly woke Xia Ding up. The latter asked in a daze, “Boss, what happened? Why are you up so early?”
“Lao San, I have an emergent issue, and need to leave first. You can continue sleeping. Call me when you wake up.” Qin Sheng said with a frown.
Xia Ding was still unconscious. He did not ask more, just waved his hand and said yes.
After that, Qin Sheng hurriedly left No.1 Zhong Liang Ocean View. He stopped a taxi and headed straight to Tomson Golf Villa.
By the time Qin Sheng arrived at the Han’s house, there were lots of cars. The entire house was filled with bodyguards. Each of them looked serious and kept an eye on any outsiders showing up.
However, Qin Sheng saw that Elder Wu was still tidying up his plants, like none of this had anything to do with him.
Elder Wu also noticed Qin Sheng, but after a few glances, he continued watering his plants. Qin Sheng nodded and entered the mansion.
He grabbed a man and asked, “Where’s Han Bing?”
“Upstairs in the living room.” The man said casually.
Qin Sheng immediately went upstairs, but he was stopped by two men on his way to the living room.
“Get out of my way!” Qin Sheng shouted angrily.
The two men coldly snorted and said, “No one is allowed to enter here!”
“No one?” Qin Sheng coldly snorted.
At this time, a man in black with a crew cut walked over. After looking at Qin Sheng up and down, he asked, “Are you Qin Sheng?”
“Who are you?”
The man said calmly, “I am Chen Bei Ming. The lady wants you to wait in the study room.”
Qin Sheng was brought to the study room by the man called Chen Bei Ming. The study room was already cleaned up, but he could still smell a scent of blood, which caused Qin Sheng to look pensive.
“How did Master Han die?” Qin Sheng asked as he clenched his teeth. This was what he wanted to know the most.
Chen Bei Ming replied with neither sadness nor happiness, “Suicide.”
“What? Suicide? ” Qin Sheng was shocked once again. He had thought that Han Guo Ping was killed by an enemy. He did not expect such a result.
Chen Bei Ming pointed at the purple sandalwood chair beside the desk and said, “Right there. He shot himself.”
The corners of Qin Sheng’s mouth twitched. He stared at that spot firmly, as his eyes gradually dimmed.
He was thinking about what was going on, and what kind of situation could make a big boss like Han Guo Ping, who has experienced countless storms, to ultimately choose a road of no return?
Qin Sheng fell into deep thought. Even now, he could not accept it.
