If it was an enemy of the past, Qin Sheng would have definitely taken away the lives of Uncle Zhen and Feng He tonight. However, Yan Chaozong was a special case. After all, he was connected to Lin Su. Qin Sheng did not dare to be so straightforward. He wanted to reserve a chance for himself. If he already did this and yet Yan Chaozong still wanted to kill him, then Qin Sheng would not hold back anymore.
They drove the almost-distorted Chuanqi away. Qin Sheng turned on his phone and realized that Mr. Wang had called him a few times. He quickly called back, saying that he had fallen asleep and his phone was on silent, so he did not hear. He also said that they were now on the freeway and he asked Mr. Wang to sleep earlier. Mr. Wang was then relieved. Qin Sheng did not dare to tell him what happened on the way, for Mr. Wang would probably be scared to death.
In its state, the Chuanqi was definitely not going to make it to Chengdu. Forget about making it onto the freeway, even if it did, it would probably not run for long before it retires. Hence, Qin Sheng and Chang Baji could only head straight to town first. They planned to rest for the night and call the car rental company when they wake up the next morning and get them to take care of the car. He and Chang Baji would then take the big bus to Chengdu. As to how much they would have to pay, Qin Sheng could only admit to it. At least they were alive. Money was not a big deal.
They found an inn in the town. Qin Sheng briefly took care of his wound. Both of them were already exhausted and they fell asleep as soon as their heads touched the pillows. They slept all the way until noon. After waking up, Qin Sheng first called the car rental company and said that they were in an accident. The car rental company then contacted the insurance company. Following right after, Qin Sheng and Chang Baji then headed out to find a clinic and took good care of their wounds, for fear of infections.
They came back to the hotel after having lunch and the people from the insurance company were already here. They took care of the matter until 3 pm. They then quickly took a car to Chengdu.
Qin Sheng called Lin Su to tell her he was safe. He told her that they were too tired from all the driving so they took a rest for the night, they would probably return to Shanghai at noon the next day. Lin Su did not think much, and only asked Qin Sheng to be careful.
Last night, after Qin Sheng and Chang Baji left them behind, Uncle Zhen quickly called his friends in Sichuan for help. Otherwise, Feng He would die on the spot. He then called Yan Chaozong to report the incident.
It was late at night. Yan Chaozong was soundly asleep in his mansion at Thompson Suite. He had just attended a meet-up with the rich second generations in Shanghai. He had been forced to drink quite a lot, but his alcohol tolerance was not bad, so he was not drunk. He went to bed right away after returning home. He was awakened by the non-stop buzzing of his phone. He rarely turned off his phone while he sleeps, for fear of any emergencies. It was especially so today, as he had been waiting for news from Uncle Zhen and Feng He.
Yang Chaozong turned on the light and picked up his phone in a daze. He realized that Uncle Zhen was calling and he woke up immediately. He asked in a low voice, “What’s the progress?”
“Young Master, we have failed.” Uncle Zhen was direct with his words. Not far away from him. Feng He was lying down and could not move anymore. Uncle Zhen’s chest was also heart-wrenchingly pain.
“What?” Yan Chaozong was utterly shocked. Uncle Zhen and Feng He personally went to take care of Qin Sheng, a small character, yet they would still fail. Besides, they went prepared; Qin Sheng did not know at all. How could they still fail?
Uncle Zhen said slightly shakily, “That man is really too powerful, Feng He and I are not his match at all. If he had not let us go, Feng He and I would have died here today. We probably would never see Young Master again.”
Yan Chaozong was surprised. “You’re talking Qin Sheng? Is he really so powerful?”
“Not Qin Sheng, but his friend. We’ve been too careless, we didn’t expect Qin Sheng to have such a powerful friend around him,” explained Uncle Zhen truthfully.
Yan Chaozong thought for a while before saying, “How are you guys holding up?”
“I can still move. Feng He is severely hurt. I’ve contacted someone in Sichuan, they’re rushing over,” replied Uncle Zhen.
Yan Chaozong was very frustrated at the moment. He said in a cold tone, “Okay, stop saying now. We can talk after you guys come back.”
After hanging up, Yan Chaozong got deep into thinking. Not only did his plan backfire, he even suffered great losses. He had not expected this ending at all. It seemed that he had looked down at Qin Sheng. However, he would definitely stop here. There were plenty of methods and chances to take care of him.
It was already 11 p.m. when Qin Sheng and Chang Baji returned to Chengdu. They found an old hotpot restaurant where they took care of their dinner. They then found a hotel near the hotel and rested there. They had already changed their flight to the next day.
When they woke up the next day, they headed straight to Shanghai from Chengdu. They had encountered danger during the trip but they were safe.
Lin Su had arrived half an hour earlier at Pudong International Airport. When time was almost up, she went to local arrival exit and waited for Qin Sheng and Chang Baji. Although there were all kinds of beautiful women in Shanghai, the international metropolis, Lin Su naturally became a beautiful woman by simply standing there. Within the short half an hour, there were already four people who came forward to pick her up and wanted to get her contact. Unsurprisingly, Lin Su rejected them all. Her reason was simple, she was already married.
A few minutes later, Qin Sheng and Chang Baji finally came out. If they do not come out any sooner, God knows how many more men were going to come and harass Lin Su. Qin Sheng saw her from afar. She was dressed in a grey outfit and looked very noble and cold-aura. Once he thought about how this woman was already his girlfriend, Qin Sheng’s heart blossomed more or less. He felt that the injuries were nothing.
Qin Sheng waved to Lin Su. She only smiled faintly and her eyes were filled with a gentle gaze as she looked at him. He walked up to her and opened up his arms. No words were needed to tell what he meant.
Although Lin Su was a bit unwilling to do so in a public area, after giving him a glare, she still cooperated and hugged him. Although she was very gentle, upon touching his wound, he grumbled a little and his face twitched from the pain.
“What’s wrong with you?” Lin Su sensed something was wrong and looked up and asked.
Qin Sheng immediately resumed to his original look and said, “Nothing, just that I missed you, I was a little excited to see you.”
“Did you comfort girls like this in the past?” Lin Su scoffed disdainfully. However, her heart was warmed. She was this type of girl. Other men may say all kinds of beautiful and sweet words, but they meant nothing but crap to her. But if she liked a man, even his most casual words would touch her a lot. Perhaps all women were like this.
Qin Sheng burst out laughing, “I will comfort you only in the future.”
Lin Su pushed him away and snorted, “I gave you an inch and now you want a mile.”
This time around, she touched his wound again. His facial expression changed slightly. To avoid Lin Su’s suspicion, he pulled her hand and smiled. “Let’s go, we’re starving.”
Chang Baji had been standing aside and choosing to avoid looking at both of them. He knew that he would have to put up with a lot of this in the future.
On the way back, Lin Su casually asked about the tiny details regarding Qin Sheng sending Shu Wen and Shu Yi back. Qin Sheng chatted with her a bit about Mr. Wang. Speaking of Mr. Wang, Lin Su became emotional. “It’s such a pity that there are not many people like Mr. Wang out there.”
“Yea, how many people would be willing to sacrifice the best days of their youth for their dreams?” Qin Sheng smiled bitterly.
They took care of lunch at the entrance of Lin Su’s neighborhood. Chang Baji knew that it was his cue to leave. He initiated, “I’ll head back to Shangshan Ruoshui first. There is still some stuff I have to settle.”
Qin Sheng wanted to spend more time with Lin Su and said between smiles, “Okay, I won’t be going today. Tell Ms. An I’ll go tomorrow.”
Chang Baji joked, “I’m afraid Ms. An would kill you tomorrow when you go.”
“My girlfriend is the most important.” Qin Sheng glanced at Lin Su and said without a care.
Lin Su glared at him and said nothing.
After Chang Baji left, Lin Su brought Qin Sheng back to Central Apartment in Lu Jia Zui. Qin Sheng changed his shoes and placed his luggage in the dining room. He said that it was some local specialties that Mr. Wang had given her.
However, Lin Su suddenly stopped talking and looked at him solemnly. Her glare was a little icy-cold.
Qin Sheng was confused. “What’s wrong with you?”
“Take off your clothes.” Lin Su glared at him and said seriously.
Qin Sheng was shocked. He said subconsciously, “Wife, I say, isn’t this a bit too fast? I have yet gotten used to it. Besides, it’s still early, should we wait until night time?”
Lin Su’s face was red from being triggered by him. Yet, she still said firmly, “Stop saying nonsense! Take off your shirt first.”
Although he did not understand what she was trying to do, he really did not dare to take it off. There were still bandages over his treated wounds. If he took his shirt off, he would expose everything. How was he going to explain himself by then?
“Can I don’t?” Qin Sheng did not dare to push it and asked in a tone of negotiation.
Lin Su’s face fell immediately, she was apparently really angry.
Qin Sheng made up his mind. He quickly replied, “I’ll do it, I’ll do it, okay?”
Hence, under Lin Su’s supervision, Qin Sheng took off his upper clothes one by one. When he took off his inner garment for keeping warm, the cat was let out of the bag.
At this moment, Qin Sheng’s upper body was naked. The bandages on his shoulders and waist were so glaring. The fresh blood that had leaked out was even more obvious.
Lin Su was in a daze from being shocked. She knew that there might be a problem with his body. For the few times that she touched his body, he always had some small actions. Although he hid it pretty well, he could not escape her observation at all. Thinking about how they delayed their stay for half a day, Lin Su felt something was not right.
However, Lin Su did not expect it to be so serious.
Since there was no point in hiding, Qin Sheng just stood rooted to the ground and allowed Lin Su to stare. After all these years, he had already gotten used to it. He did not get injured just once or twice. It would all heal after a short while, and he was also not facing life danger.
After an unknown period of time, Lin Su asked, “What happened?” Her eyes were red and she was biting on her lip nervously.
“It’s nothing, it’s just some scratch, it’s nothing serious,” Qin Sheng replied cheekily.
Lin Su eyes scanned downwards and questioned again, “Can you find a better reason?”
Qin Sheng remained silent. He really did not know how to explain. Was he supposed to tell Lin Su, Yan Chaozong sent someone to travel thousands of miles to kill me? He was used to tanking everything himself and was unwilling to share with others.
“Qin Sheng, am I still your girlfriend?” Lin Su asked word by word.
Qin Sheng nodded without hesitation, “Yes.”
Lin Su replied calmly, “If you still treat me as your girlfriend, then tell me what the heck is going on!”
Lin Su had already said the words. Qin Sheng realized how heavy her words were. If he insisted on not saying, she might really become angry. This kind of woman would not allow anyone to lie to her and definitely not treat her like a fool.
Qin Sheng had no other way and could only answer truthfully, “There was an accident on the way from Sichuan to Chengdu.”
