The best must always be kept to the last. Qin Sheng and Lin Su had just started out, they were not in a rush to enter the next step. To him, all these were bound to happen sooner or later. If you progress slowly, you will eventually reach your goal, why bother about the rash now? Besides, his injuries have yet to heal completely, he really did not dare to risk worsening it. This was also one of the reasons why he left Yu Fengzhi’s place the other day.
There was nothing more comfortable than hugging your beloved woman to sleep and waking up naturally. When Qin Sheng opened his eyes and saw Lin Su sleeping peacefully in his embrace, he felt that he must guard this hard-earned happiness no matter what.
Lin Su was still in deep sleep. Perhaps it was because she had already quit and did not have as much stress as before, which was why she could sleep so soundly. Or perhaps, it was because she was lying in Qin Sheng’s embrace. Qin Sheng pushed her away gently as he wanted to get up and make breakfast. He enjoyed cooking, let alone cooking for his lover. Yet, Lin Su hung onto him like a child and did not want to let go. She snuggled into his embrace subconsciously and hugged him tightly again. Qin Sheng did not know whether to laugh or cry.
Qin Sheng walked out of the room gently and carefully and ran into the kitchen to get busy with making breakfast. There was nothing in Lin Su’s kitchen, so he cooked some porridge and eggs. He also made some side dishes and even ran downstairs to buy some buns and youtiao. After all the hard work, it was already 8 am. Qin Sheng then went into the room and pulled open the curtains. The sunlight poured in instantly, lighting up the whole room. The weather was so good today.
Qin Sheng laid beside Lin Su and caressed her messy hair as he whispered, “Little lazy kitten, get up and eat breakfast.”
Lin Su opened her eyes blurrily and entangled her arms around his neck smoothly. Her lazy behavior was beaming with feminity. Qin Sheng lowered his head and planted a gentle kiss on her forehead. Lin Su was embarrassed and smiled. She then asked, “Why are you up so early?”
“My body clock is like that, I can’t change it,” Qin Sheng answered casually.
Lin Su smiled faintly, “Then let me change it for you in the future, and then you can sleep in with me.”
“Okay, whatever my wife says.” Qin Sheng laughed and nodded. He then bent over to scoop her up before helping her to wear her shoes and sending her into the bathroom to wash up.
Qin Sheng waited outside for 10 minutes and Lin Su briefly washed up and came out. Seeing the abundant breakfast on the table, she could not help but say, “Seems like I’m going to become a big fatso in the future.”
“You’re so slim, isn’t it better to be a little fatter? It’s more comfortable when I touch you,” Qin Sheng teased.
Lin Su scowled, “Gangster.”
Outside the window, the sun was shining brightly. Inside the house, happiness filled the space. Qin Sheng and Lin Su sat opposite each other. They lowered their heads and ate their breakfast without saying anything. Every now and then, they would lift up their heads and meet each other in the eye. They would also burst out laughing at the same time. This was the life that Lin Su wanted, simple was enough.
After breakfast, Qin Sheng had to go to work. Lin Su was going to move to her girlfriend’s place today. Qin Sheng wanted to take the day off to help her but she said that she did not have many things. Her girlfriend would come over later to pick her up. Qin Sheng then rested assured.
In the following week, Qin Sheng and Lin Su’s lives were very peaceful. Qin Sheng went to work like how he should, and it was very smooth. Shangshan Ruoshui’s business improved again. Han Zhengdong was very supportive of him. Wang Haichao and the rest also cooperated. Every now and then, Ye Muyang would come to Shangshan Ruoshui to show off to him. Once in a while, he would also bring him along to different meet-ups to meet some rich second generations that seemed powerful but had nothing to do with him. However, the two’s relationship got closer. After all, Qin Sheng did not know Ye Muyang’s purpose. He was not God; he would naturally treat Ye Muyang as a friend since he treated him so well.
At night, Qin Sheng would accompany Lin Su to eat dinner and go shopping whenever he was free. Sometimes, he would return to Shilin Huayuan directly and wander around in the bookstore. He would then start to walk into the gym again.
This peacefulness caused Qin Sheng to feel a little strange because he did not feel that Yan Chaozong or the Lin family would let him go so easily regarding Lin Su’s relationship with him. But until now, nothing new happened.
It was especially so on Yan Chaozong’s side. After losing such a big deal at Southwestern Sichuan last time, he had no reaction. This was not making sense, was he admitting defeat just like that? He had completely given up on Lin Su?
It was Friday again. This week, Qin Sheng finally got to take two days off. He intended to accompany Lin Su to go shopping and take advantage of the weekend to accompany her in house and job-hunting. Based on her education history and resume, it was still quite easy to find a decent job.
When he returned back to Shilin Huayuan at night, Hao Lei and Chang Baji were already back. Chang Baji was packing up. Qin Sheng asked in confusion, “Lao Chang, where are you going?”
“Didn’t Han Zhengdong tell you?” Chang Baji stopped and asked in surprise.
Qin Sheng frowned and asked, “Tell me what?”
“Oh, I’m going to Beijing with him tomorrow for a business trip, he said that we’re going to learn and pick up some experience at the big clubs there. Angie couldn’t leave, so he got me to go with him,” Chang Baji explained. He did not think too much about this business trip. Han Zhengdong told him that there were many areas for improvement in Shangshan Ruoshui, which was why they had to go learn in Beijing. Sometime later, they also have to go to Hong Kong.
Qin Sheng nodded thoughtfully. “Oh, go then, it’s nice that you can also relax for a few days.”
“I’m only going for two days, I’ll be back on Monday morning” Chang Baji laughed.
Chang Baji continued to pack while Hao Lei played games in the living room. He bought an Xbox a few days ago. During this period of time, Qin Sheng basically did not meet up with Han Bing at al. Han Bing also did not send him messages or call him. Qin Sheng more or less guessed a bit and was more or less feeling helpless.
“What’s Han Bing busy with recently?” Qin Sheng asked casually.
Hao Lei replied without looking up, “The company is moving recently, to Xintiandi. Guoping Group is also coming to an end. No matter what, she’s just quite busy. Didn’t she tell you anything?”
“No,” Qin Sheng shook his head and said. He quickly followed with, “Does she know already?”
“Yea, how could she not know?” Hao Lei naturally knew what Qin Sheng was referring to. He did not deny and nodded directly. “You are considered to be well-known already, who else doesn’t know?”
“Sigh,” Qin Sheng sighed.
Hao Lei put down his game console and said with a heavy heart, “Qin Sheng, Han Bing likes you, that we all know. Even if you don’t have feelings for her, I think you two can at least be friends, right? Perhaps she’s waiting for you to tell her yourself. So if you have time these two days, talk to her about it. I can tell that her recent mental state is not very good.”
“Got it,” Qin Sheng shook his head and said.
In the middle of the night, Yan Chaozong was still awake in his mansion at Thompson Suite. He sat on the balcony and lit up a cigarette. Staring at the corrupt and pleasure-seeking environment outside, he was deep in thoughts. He had been holding back for so long and was finally going to take action.
Ye Muyang’s call came at 8 pm. Yan Chaozong asked in a deep voice, “Has it all been arranged?”
“Chang Baji has already been sent to go on a business trip to Beijing tomorrow. When do you plan to take action? Where will you do it? I will cooperate with your plan,” Ye Muyang said cheerfully. That night, Qin Sheng did not fall for his trap. He was very surprised. On the next day, the beautiful woman told him the whole story. This caused him to admire Qin Sheng more or less. His self-control was really strong. Even at that point in time, he was still controlling himself.
Yan Chaozong had already arranged everything long ago. He said slowly, “When Chang Baji leaves tomorrow, make a call to Qin Sheng and get him to go burn incense at Mount Jiuhua with you. It takes five hours to drive from Shanghai to Mount Jiuhua, if you can settle this tomorrow, then we’ll do it tomorrow night. You don’t need to worry about the rest.”
“I’ll try first, but I believe that my silver tongue can probably take care of him,” Ye Muyang said confidently.
Yan Chaozong laughed coldly. “I hope so, I’ll be waiting for your good news.”
Ye Muyang’s side had been settled. Yan Chaozong still had to call Uncle Zhao to check on his preparation. After a short while, the call went through. Yan Chaozong asked in a low voice, “Uncle Zhao, how’s your preparation going?”
“Young Master, we’ve already reached Mount Jiuhua, we’re now checking out the landscape and looking for the best timing to move. Don’t worry about it,” Uncle Zhao said truthfully.
Yan Chaozong was more or less worried. “Are you sure that the two experts you’ve invited from Wudang Mountain can really handle Qin Sheng? There won’t be any unexpected situations?”
Uncle Zhao replied confidently, “Young Master, let alone Qin Sheng, even Chang Baji could not be their opponent. Don’t worry, as long as he dares to come to Mount Jiuhua, there’s definitely no return for him.”
“Okay, wait for my news,” Yan Chaozong said feeling satisfied. After struggling for so long, now they were just waiting for the right timing. This time around, he would definitely not let Qin Sheng live.
They were now just waiting for Ye Muyang’s news.
In the early morning, Han Zhengdong’s driver came to pick up Chang Baji. He then sent Han Zhengdong and Chang Baji to Beijing. Han Zhengdong’s assistant also came along. He was a young fella that started working just two days ago.
After having breakfast, Qin Sheng felt like it was about time and was just about to call Lin Su when Ye Muyang called him. After Qin Sheng picked up, Ye Muyang asked peacefully, “I was wondering why I couldn’t find you at Shangshan Ruoshui, turns out you’ve taken leave.”
“Lao Ye, why are you looking for me so early in the morning? Is there something going on?” Qin Sheng had gotten closer to Ye Muyang during this period of time. The only reason was because of Boss Ye and Jiang Xianbang’s relationship. Qin Sheng had never thought that the motivation behind all this was so insidious.
Ye Muyang sighed deeply and said, “Sigh, I got scolded by Old Master. I’m in a bad mood and wanted you to come to take a walk with me.”
“Take a walk? Where?” Qin Sheng asked casually.
Ye Muyang said slowly, “My mom’s health hasn’t been good this period of time and stuff on my side hasn’t been going well. I want to go burn incense on Mount Jiuhua.”
“Mount Jiuhua in Anhui?” Qin Sheng frowned and asked, “Why aren’t you going to the nearest Putuo Mountain?”
“If hell is not empty, one can never become Buddha. I believe in the Tibetan King Bodhisattva, so I want to go to Mount Jiuhua. After thinking about it, I want you to go with me, sigh,” Ye Muyang explained. This was his trap.
Qin Sheng was put on the spot. After all, he had already promised Lin Su that he would spend the weekend with her. He frowned and said, “This…”
“It only takes a five-hour drive. We can go there today and burn the incense tomorrow and rush back tomorrow afternoon, “Ye Muyang quickly said as he was worried that Qin Sheng would not agree.
Qin Sheng was a little hesitant. He was quite happy that Ye Muyang thought of him, but what about Lin Su’s side?
After more hesitation, Qin Sheng could only place Lin Su aside first, thinking that she would be able to understand. Hence, he nodded and said, “Okay, when do we set off?”
Hearing his consent, Ye Muyang was overjoyed. The stone in his heart had been completely put down. He answered excitedly, “I’ll come to find you right now.”
