Since three consecutive generations of the Qin family had taken great efforts to build up the current foundation, of course, Qin Changan hoped that the Qin family could carry on with the foundation. He would like to have the Qin family ride the tide of the times rather than be a passer-by, which was also a common wish of every grand family. However, he only had a son. Though he still had Qin Ran, the way he saw it, after all, Qin Ran was his daughter, who would end up getting married to an outsider. Of course, he, who held traditional thoughts in his mind, would not hand over his family property to an outsider unless his son disappointed him completely, who was not appealing at all. If so, he might hand over the family property to the outsider temporarily and train his grandson well for the rest of his life so that his grandson could be the successor at that time.
However, if he made such an arrangement, he would take a great risk. While facing any benefit and interest, which was beyond human nature, most of the people would rush into danger. There were so many examples like this in society. Though Qin Changan did not fear that others would dare to try any plots under his nose when he was alive, he did fear that after he died, his son, who was simply a scoundrel, could not deal with these relatives on his sister’s side. In that case, it would be more impossible for him to pass his family property to his grandson. Consequently, Qin Changan had to find other ways out. Here was how his plan would go: after he confirmed if Qin Sheng was capable enough to be his successor, he needed to take precautions and pave the way for what would happen 20 or 30 later.
But, no matter how prepared he was, life was full of unexpected and twist events. Even so, this was the best he could do from his side. He didn’t need to do so if his son was promising and would not disappoint him.
Qin Changan was at ease finally since what Qin Sheng had done today made him feel that he could hand over the Qin family’s business to Qin Sheng without any concern. Under such a circumstance, Qin Sheng actually had dared to challenge two strong opponents, which indicated that Qin Sheng had cut his own route of retreat and intended to break and stand back.
This was the last test he had set up for Qin Sheng…
However, Qin Sheng had done one thing that Qin Changan really disapproved of, which was that Qin Sheng actually had offended such powerful opponents for the sake of a woman. In his opinion, an ambitious person should not do that. But, upon thinking back, he had done the same during that time, right? The Old Master had done the same in his days. All the men in the Qin family fell for beauties.
Qin Changan laughed out loud as he said, “Gongsun, open a bottle of wine for me. I will have a good drinking session today.”
Gongsun smiled happily as he said, “I will go to get it done now. However, Master, based on the current situation, won’t the Young Master be in danger? Yan Chaozong and the Qu family definitely will not let go of Young Master. Should we be prepared for that?”
Qin Changan said thoughtfully, “Gongsun, this is my last test for him. However miserably he will lose this time, we could not help him anyway. That is also the main reason why I have arranged for Qin Ran to be in Europe. You watch over Qin Ran in case she will act on her own. Once the issue is solved this time, I will let him go back to Sijiu City. At that time, he needs to solve his own issues.”
Gongsun still thought Qin Sheng would not be safe and said in a deep voice, “Master, I am afraid that the issue from last time will take place again.”
Qin Changan laughed happily as he said, “Of course, I have thought about that. I have asked Nan Gong to leave Hainan and go to Hangzhou. With Zhuang Zhou and Nan Gong by his side, I doubt anyone can threaten him. However, they will not stand up for him unless there is no other way.”
Upon hearing what Qin Changan had said, Gongsun was at ease finally. Nan Gong could be counted as Qin Changan’s Foster Daughter, more or less. As one of the Qin family’s most loyal guards, she had been trained and cultivated since her childhood.
In Yuerong Manor, which was located in Xixi, Hangzhou…
The group of people including Qin Sheng were all taken away. Since they had made a somewhat big scene this time and had almost broken down the banquet hall of Yuerong Manor, they had caused a somewhat pernicious impact. At the same time, the police also took away the relevant footage.
Yang Deng was also arrested. When Qin Sheng had passed by Yang Deng, he smiled bitterly as he said, “You should not get yourself involved.”
Yang Deng got Qin Sheng’s point and said straightforwardly, “You are my friend and I have few friends. I am afraid that I can’t stand by and watch you being besieged and mauled.”
Qin Sheng chuckled as he said, “Thanks a lot.” More complicated words and sentences could not beat this simple sentence. Yang Deng did amaze Qin Sheng, who was such a weirdo. In the beginning, they had been enemies of each other and he had almost gotten Yang Deng killed. In addition, he had scarred Yang Deng’s leg. However, surprisingly, they had actually become good friends after going back to Hangzhou. Honestly speaking, he was always on guard against Yang Deng. But what Yang Deng had done and said today made Qin Sheng feel ashamed since he had judged him unfairly with his own despicable mind. Yang Deng was a genuine man.
The farce came to an end. However, it started to turn sour. Most of the people were trying to guess who Qin Sheng was. After all, not everybody would be as courageous as him. However, they definitely would be greatly disappointed by the result. There was a huge gap between Qin Sheng and Qu Huanxi. It was the same when it came to Qin Sheng and Yan Chaozong.
Qin Sheng’s group members were all detained in the bureau. The group of people including Yan Chaozong and Qu Huanxi were also taken away. However, the undercurrent outside started to emerge.
The Qu family and the Yan family got the news one after another. After that, they started to put pressure on the municipal public security bureau. After staying there for only half a day, Qu Huanxi and Yan Chaozong were released. Though they had been the leading players, they had not engaged in the fighting and brawling, consequently, they were free after citing a random excuse. Qu Huanxi was called back home by the Old Monk. Yan Chaozong had gotten a call from the Yan family in Shanghai before he was released. After that, he directly went back to Shanghai. It was said that both Old Master Yan and his uncle were agitated, who were both vexed at what Yan Chaozong had done.
As for the Third Master Wu, who had been cultivating his mind and soul on Mount Putuo, after he got a call from Luo Changgong, he said indignantly, “Fool!”
Though Third Master Wu did not appreciate what Yang Deng had done, after all, Yang Deng was his foster son, so he knew Yang Deng’s temperament, more or less. Consequently, he had no choice but to use his connections to bail out Yang Deng first. Meanwhile, he also called the group of people including Luo Changgong, advising them to watch over Yang Deng and make sure he would not meddle in Qin Sheng’s issues anymore. So, Yang Deng, who had given Qin Sheng a hand, was restrained and confined.
Although the other parties involved had been released, Qin Sheng was still inside the bureau, enjoying the so-called hospitality. Though it was not the first time he had been detained in the police station, he still felt depressed about it. After all, everybody preferred leading a simple and good life. No one liked to suffer from hardships here. Unfortunately, the Qu family and the Yan family had put pressure on the municipal public security bureau. Additionally, the management personnel of Yuerong Manor felt very dissatisfied with what they had done and complained to the leaders in Hangzhou City. Consequently, Qin Sheng was the one who took the blame in the end, which, in Qin Sheng’s opinion, was simply a lame joke.
Though Lin Changhe was helpless about what had happened today, the decision that Qin Sheng had made in the end made him speechless. After all, Qin Sheng was Lin Su’s lover. Consequently, Lin Changhe informed Lin Su about what had happened. Upon knowing that a mishap had occurred to Qin Sheng, Lin Su left the company in a hurry and rushed back. After she knew about the ins and outs of the incident, she burst into tears out of disappointment.
She cried because Qin Sheng had concealed everything from her and shouldered everything on his own. She cried because Qin Sheng was not willing to see her being wronged and had suffered from such great injustice by himself. She cried because everybody was bullying Qin Sheng and nobody was willing to give him a hand.
“Uncle, could you please help him?” Since Lin Su did not have many friends, especially those with powerful connections, she had no choice but to rest her hope on her Second Uncle.
Lin Changhe rejected her request mercilessly, saying, “Susu, even though I am willing to help Qin Sheng, as a matter of fact, I can’t do that. Do you know what it means if the Lin family is involved at this moment? I called your father already and he agreed with me. We must consider the Lin family’s interest.”
Lin Su felt wronged as she said, “Uncle, Qin Sheng went to Yan Chaozong after taking your advice. You must help him.”
Lin Changhe let out a sigh as he said, “Susu, don’t blame Uncle. I have no way out.” Upon finishing his words, Lin Changhe hung up. When it came to Qin Sheng’s issue, he had to stay calm. Meanwhile, he was pretty tolerant of Lin Su since Lin Changting had told him over the phone that he should take Lin Su back to Ningbo at whatever cost. However, at this moment, Lin Su certainly was not willing to leave Hangzhou since she needed to run about for Qin Sheng’s sake. Consequently, Lin Changhe had no choice but to put Lin Changting’s order off.
Since Lin Changhe had refused Lin Su, she had no choice but to rest her hopes on the other three people. One of them was Cao Da. Based on the relationship between Qin Sheng and Cao Da, Cao Da definitely would run around for Qin Sheng. The second one was Xue Qingyan, who took Qin Sheng as her brother. Since Qin Sheng had gotten into such big trouble, of course, she would not look on and do nothing. The third one was Zhuang Zhou, who had some connections and foundations in Hangzhou. Since Zhuang Zhou was somewhat connected to the Qin family, he definitely would give Qin Sheng a hand.
Lin Su made the first call to Cao Da. After hearing Lin Su out, Cao Da was pretty astounded. It did not occur to him that such an important issue had happened today. Qin Sheng’s group had been completely annihilated, more or less, which impacted him a lot. He told Lin Su to calm herself down and go to Jiuxi Rose Garden first, saying he would contact his connections right away.
On her way to Jiuxi Rose Garden, Lin Su also called Xue Qingyan. The Xue family had powerful connections in the political field. Moreover, the Xue family made its fortune in Zhejiang Province, which was obviously more powerful and influential than Cao Da.
Hardly had Xue Qingyan, who had been attending a meeting and left the conference room, picked up the phone when she heard the sound of weeping over the phone. She felt somewhat surprised and asked, “Lin Su, what happened?”
Back when Lin Su had been in Shanghai, she had lived a peaceful life, which had been as calm as water. In her daily life, she had gone to work and got off work routinely. On weekends, she had stayed at home, reading books. Sometimes, she had asked her besties out to go shopping, watch movies, or go to a concert. But ever since she had run into Qin Sheng again, her comfortable life had been ruptured. In the past year, she had wandered from place to place with Qin Sheng and endured many hardships.
However, whatever Qin Sheng had done and whatever setbacks and hardships they had encountered, Lin Su had no regrets because Qin Sheng was the man whom she had chosen on her own. She had fallen in love with Qin Sheng long ago and would not abandon him in her lifetime.
After Lin Su elaborated on what had happened today, Xue Qingyan was astounded. It did not occur to her that during the time she had not been in Hangzhou, so many issues had taken place. However, Qin Sheng had not told her anything. Yan Chaozong, Qin Sheng’s hardcore enemy, actually had chased Qin Sheng down to Hangzhou.
Xue Qingyan comforted Lin Su as she said, “Take it easy. I will make a call right away. After attending this meeting, I will rush back to Hangzhou tonight.” After she hung up, she contacted her connections in Hangzhou immediately. In this case, she could approach Qin Sheng sooner than Cao Da. Meanwhile, she also knew that what had happed today was not the end but the beginning. Since Qin Sheng had made such a big scene today, the Yan family and the Qu family certainly would not spare him. She had to rush back to Hangzhou to give Qin Sheng a hand.
Lin Su held the same thoughts as Xue Qingyan. As a woman who was more smarter than most women, she knew that even if Qin Sheng were to be released in the end, the whole thing would not come to an end easily. That group of people definitely would get back at Qin Sheng. As a result, she called Zhuang Zhou. Unfortunately, Zhuang Zhou’s mobile was powered off, which Lin Su found incomprehensible.
Lin Su thought, “Some people were rushing around for Qin Sheng, indicating that Qin Sheng was not a loner at all. However, the disturbance just arose. Could Qin Sheng pull through the difficulty this time?”
