Chapter 253 Are You Interested?
Qin Sheng’s mindset was different from when he was in Shanghai, especially his attitude toward women. When he was in Shanghai, he had relationships with other women and played games with them. But he didn’t have a girlfriend at that time, and he knew the rules of this society. So Qin Sheng dared to do anything to Yu Fengzhi.
Now that Qin Sheng had experienced many things, his mindset had been changed. Lin Su was important to him. He would not hurt Lin Su for any reason, and would not let other women disturb his life, including Yu Fengzhi.
He asked Yu Fengzhi to come to Hangzhou just because he thought Yu Fengzhi had the ability to do this job. He didn’t want to have another relationship with Yu Fengzhi. Yu Fengzhi’s attitude toward Lin Su made him sick, so he found an excuse to leave.
“What do you mean? I don’t understand. Your girlfriend is here. Aren’t you afraid that I’ll tell her you just teased me? I bet she will not like you messing with other women outside. You have to treat her well, right?” Yu Fengzhi turned her head in surprise, and asked Qin Sheng with a charming look.
Qin Sheng held back his smiling face and said, “I’m not kidding. You can play jokes with me in other places. But please mind your manners when you are in front of her, or I will…”
Yu Fengzhi was surprised to see Qin Sheng be so serious. She said coldly, “Or what? You forgot about everything? Why didn’t you warn me when you bullied me in Shangshan Ruoshui?”
Qin Sheng stopped messing with Yu Fengzhi. He said with a cold facial expression, “You are a smart woman. You know what I mean. I’m much clearer about everything than you.”
Yu Fengzhi was deep in thought. In the end, she didn’t reply.
The two went to the working area on the backside of the club. Yu Yixiao had already waited there, along with other new supervisors of different departments. It was the first time that Qin Sheng saw them, so he just said something in a short time, praised them, and told them the big plans of the company.
When all the people left, Yu Yixiao opened his mouth. “President Qin, I have some opinions about things done by Fengzhi. She changed too many things, and violated the original idea of Guangyin.”
Yu Fengzhi said with a calm look when she heard that, “Brother Yu, I didn’t do anything wrong. Look at the business of Guangyin.”
Yu Yixiao said coldly, “The original idea of Guangyin LIVE was to have a place for music. Now that you have many warm-up girls to accelerate the business, is there any difference between Guangyin and a nightclub now?”
“It is just my short-term strategy, not a long-term one. I’m doing this to keep a high customer flow volume when Guangyin opens again. As for the musical part, I have discussed it with you, and President Qin has agreed with that. We have contacted famous performance agencies in the country, and we are selecting local Hangzhou bands. We will let you check on it,” Yu Fengzhi argued.
At this moment, Qin Sheng stood up and said, “Brother Yu, I know what you mean. But society is realistic. Sometimes we need to find a balance between what is ideal and what is reality. You know that the business of Guangyin was bad before. We cannot lose money anymore, so we need to change. And you have to give up something in order to gain something. I think Fengzhi’s strategy is good. Let’s see how it works and then decide the next step. If it doesn’t work, we could change the plan.”
“Since you have said that, President Qin, I don’t have any opinion,” Yu Yixiao said in a helpless tone. That was all he could do. It was impossible for him to argue with Qin Sheng because big boss Cao Da trusted Qin Sheng so much.
Since Qin Sheng left the second floor with Yu Fengzhi and Yu Yixiao, Lin Su and Xin Xin were sitting there, listening to music and watching others chatting. Xin Xin said, “Sister Lin, I didn’t know it was so lively here, and there are many beautiful girls.”
“I don’t like places like this, it’s too noisy,” Lin Su said. She knew that Qin Sheng was in charge of catering and entertainment companies, including nightclubs and pubs.
Xin Xin giggled. “I just come to the club sometimes, mostly with my friends. But sister Lin, there are so many beautiful girls, and my brother is so rich and young and charming. Don’t you fear that my brother will be taken away by other women?”
“I trust your brother,” Lin Su said.
Xin Xin muttered, “I trust my brother too, but I don’t trust other women, such as the woman talking in a weird tone. I think she is interested in my brother. You have to be careful, sister, society today is complicated.”
Lin Su covered her mouth, smiled, and said, “You’re more worried than I am.”
“Because I want to be an aunt so soon as possible,” Xin Xin said honestly.
Lin Su was speechless when she heard this. Fortunately, the waiter came with wine at this moment, and it removed her embarrassment.
Lin Su and Xin Xin just sat there for a while until Qin Sheng came back soon after. This time, he didn’t come with Yu Fengzhi and Yu Yixiao. Qin Sheng smiled. “We can change the place if you feel bored.”
“I think it is good,” Xin Xin said happily. This girl was crazy inside. She was young after all, and she liked lively places.
Later, when Cao Zhang came over to Qin Sheng with two friends, he said with a smile, “I heard brother Yu say that you were coming, and I came to say hello.”
“You should be at school now. Do you come out to play again?” Qin Sheng made fun of him.
Cao Zhang said, “We are welcoming the newcomers these days, nothing special. So I just took my friends to come here. It is surprising to see Guangyin so lively now, I can’t even find a seat.”
Qin Sheng looked at Cao Zhang’s friends, a boy and a girl. They might be students, still looking like teenagers. He said, “We are only three people here. Come to sit with us if you don’t mind.”
Cao Zhang had met Lin Su before, so he said hello to her politely. He knew that Xin Xin was Qin Sheng’s little sister and was studying in Fudan University. The young people soon found their topics to chat about, and it made Qin Sheng and Lin Su become outsiders.
They stayed there until nearly 11 p.m., then Qin Sheng went back home with Lin Su and Xin Xin first. Xin Xin had to go back to Shanghai tomorrow, so she could not stay too late. This girl had gotten familiar with Cao Zhang, they even exchanged WeChat numbers.
The next morning, Qin Sheng and Lin Su sent Xin Xin back to Shanghai. Along the way of sending Xin Xin to the train station, he kept telling Xin Xin to study hard and not to play too much, and to just call him if she needed help.
After taking Xin Xin to the train station, Qin Sheng drove Lin Su to work. Lin Su stayed at home for a few days, she must have had a lot of work to do. Soon afterward, Qin Sheng went to Meijiawu because Xue Qingyan was back. Xue Qingyan came back much more often than before since Qin Sheng came back to Hangzhou.
When Qin Sheng reached Meijiawu, Xue Qingyan was already there. She was chatting and drinking tea with Master Liu on the pavilion located in the backyard. The sun was shining and the wind was blowing, so it was nice to sit here to watch the tea hills of Meijiawu. Master Liu had picked a wonderful place to spend the rest of his life.
“Qin Sheng is coming, come to sit and drink. We just made clovershrub tea.” Master Liu, who had a gracious look and a lively mind, waved at Qin Sheng. His attitude toward Qin Sheng was getting better and better.
Since Qin Changan visited him last time, Master Liu now knew the background of Qin Sheng, and it was beyond his imagination. He had never thought that Old Master Qin had such a powerful and great son. The only thing he couldn’t understand was why Old Master Qin did not tell Qin Sheng the truth and let him practice in Hangzhou.
Qin Changan had only one son. If Qin Sheng went back to Beijing in the future, according to Qin Changan’s ability, he could definitely make Qin Sheng a big character. So Master Liu had to treat Qin Sheng well. Furthermore, only he knew the truth, Xue Qingyan did not know about it.
After saying hello to Master Liu and Xue Qingyan, he said, “You miss me, my sister? So you come back to Hangzhou?”
Xue Qingyan stared at Qin Sheng charmingly. “Don’t think too much. The Old Master is not comfortable these days, and our big boss is too busy. As a daughter, I have to come back and take care of him. That is what I should do.”
When Qin Sheng heard this, he said in a hurry, “Sorry, my sister. I don’t know the situation. Just kidding. Don’t be mad at me.”
“Not a big deal. I won’t be mad at you.” Xue Qingyan didn’t take it seriously.
Master Liu echoed her, “It is hard to maintain a healthy body as you age. The old master is nearly 80 years old. He has already lived a long time.”
“You are right. Old Master told us that if one day he was sick and ready to leave us, then just let him leave quietly, don’t give me too much torment.” Xue Qingyan sighed. “Though he said these words, we are family, and sometimes it is hard to choose.”
Qin Sheng was just listening without saying anything. He knew that the Old Master was the most important person in the Xue family. So his status could not be measured by the standard of ordinary families.
Master Liu shook his head. “Let’s stop talking about such a sad topic. Qin Sheng, Qing Yan told me that you went back to Xi’an recently. I want to find time to go to the Zhongnan Mountains, can you go with me?”
Qin Sheng glanced at Master Liu and looked at Xue Qingyan, then said, “When do you want to go? I can go with you maybe.”
“Not sure yet. I will tell you once I fix the date, and inform you to arrange for trivial things,” Master Liu said.
Qin Sheng said with gladness, “Okay.”
At this moment, the housekeeper came to tell Master Liu that his friend called him to ask about something, so Master Liu stood up to answer the phone.
Qin Sheng smiled. “I have brought you specialty from Xi’an, my sister. It is in my car, I’ll give it to you later.”
“Good. You don’t disappoint me.” Xue Qing was delighted, and she said right after that, “I have invited Jianping to have dinner tonight, and you have to pay the bill.”
Just some simple words from Xue Qingyan could make Qin Sheng emotional. Qin Sheng was touched by her as he said, “Thank you, my sister.”
“That’s enough.” Xue Qingyan stared at Qin Sheng and said, “But I have something to discuss with you. You have to think about it. It is a good thing for you, depending on how you think.”
Qin Sheng did not understand. “What is it? Tell me, my sister.”
Xue Qingyan held her cup and said thoughtfully, “Master Liu wants you to be his apprentice, are you interested?”
That one question just made Qin Sheng lost in thought. It was a big deal.
