While Wei Ziqian was hesitating, indecisive, and confused, a surprised voice sounded behind him.
It was a man with rimless glasses, an elite young man with a gentle face — his secretary/right and left hand man/confidant/good friend, Zhao Yan.
“Boss! I didn’t see wrong, right? Shouldn’t you have been kidnapped to sell your organs in order to benefit society?!”
Bene… Benefit your ass!
Seeing Wei Ziqian turn around and look at him with a haggard face, Zhao Yan immediately put on an excited look, like the person in front of him was his long lost father who had been lost for many years, and hugged the person in front of him in an excited manner.
“Where the hell have you been!? You’ve changed your phone number, and your house was taken too, your ID card and passport was taken, and I couldn’t find you even though I’ve searched the nearby hotels and Internet cafes, I thought you couldn’t take it and went to sell your kidney!” Zhao Yan shouted at Wei Ziqian like he was a jumping bean, “I’ve been waiting here for two weeks before I finally waited for you!”
Wei Ziqian was stunned by his shout, and from his words, he could hear a hint of heartfelt concern, and his heart, which had been abused by god all morning, was warm again. But…… Wei Ziqian’s heart jumped.
Here it comes!!!
Wasn’t this the legendary, akin to the village head of the novice village, the miracle teammate that comes with the story and a chance of giving equipment! Wei Ziqian secretly sent a like in his heart.
“Uh, Xiao Yan, wait first. What did you say happened to my ID card?”
This time, it was Zhao Yan’s turn to pause, he looked worried, and there was a look of love (?) in his eyes that gave Wei Ziqian goose bumps.
“Boss, you1polite version of you. Zhao Yan continues to use it throughout. — are you okay?”
“It’s like this.” Wei Ziqian reached out to increase the distance between them, and looked solemnly into the other’s eyes, “I have amnesia.”
The atmosphere between the two people froze instantly, after Zhao Yan fell expressionlessly silent for a moment, his eyes turned red, covered his mouth, and he choked.
“Boss … please be strong!” He sincerely, earnestly, and did his best to save the suffering soul in front of him, “I know that this was a big blow to you, and maybe you would even become a waste that can only stay at home. But I swear, regardless of whether you are old or sick, rich or poor, and even if you have AIDS, syphilis, leukaemia, become bedridden with your fluids flowing, and have no money and countless debts, I will always take care of you!”
Bastard, are you cursing me, or cursing me, or cursing me!!
Wei Ziqian coughed twice and started to expand the wings of his imagination.
“Actually, I had a car accident……”
“……Because I was strong, I managed to escape, then I accidentally fell into the river……”
“En, no wonder water seemed to have leaked into your head.”
“……Swam back to the shore with my amazing swimming ability, after, I met a hungry dog……”
“……After successfully getting rid of the dog, and feeling hungry and cold, I found a colourful mushroom by the side of the road, then I couldn’t help but take a bite……”
“Are you the jester the monkey invited.”
“……When I woke up the next day, I found that my memories before the car accident was gone. That’s it!”
Zhao Yan fell into silence again, and his pretty face had a case of face paralysis, and the low pressure around him was frightening.
“……Well, I’ll believe it.”
God, you actually believe it!? Wei Ziqian, at this moment, was deeply shocked by his secretary’s concealed talents.
“Things, must be said from the day that you, boss, looked for trouble……” Then, Zhao Yan spoke in a brilliant manner worthy of respect, yet sarcastic with words hidden between the lines, basically worthy of getting full marks as he explained everything to Wei Ziqian.
Filtering out things such as ‘my boss is an idiot’, ‘serves you right for doing something stupid’, and ‘Gossip: My weird boss who is kind of dumb was forced to lower his head’, in his heart Wei Ziqian summed up what had happened in the past year–
Just a year ago, Wei Scum Gong, who was still surrounded by all sorts of birds, attended a banquet. At that banquet, he met Shen Shuyao, and because he had drunk quite a bit, he was a little hot-headed, so he brought along his own harem to mock and tease the other, thus, he was marked by the other! He never expected that the other party was an underworld! young! prince! — And was the type that surprised the world. As a result, Wei Ziqian’s career was repeatedly thwarted, with various secrets leaked, accounting loopholes, business robbed, and others took advantage of this to bring him down. Even the harem at his side was taken away! The last time, Wei Ziqian owed a huge debt to underground banks, and made a big deal to save the situation. But Shen Shuyao had hindered the original fool proof plan. Finally, he became bankrupt, and was forced to sell his property. In order to prevent him from escaping abroad, even his passport and ID card was taken away by Shen Shuyao using illegal methods.
As for the employees under Wei Ziqian, those that resigned, resigned, those that changed jobs changed, and even those subordinates that originally swore to follow him were either threated or seduced by profits through Shen Shuyao, and betrayed him. In the end, only Zhao Yan and a few of those loyal to him expressed their willingness to die with Wei Ziqian.
Wei Ziqian, who had used up all of his talent, knew that he was played by Shen Shuyao, but he wasn’t as powerful or ruthless as the other party, and wanted to go back to his old home to ask for support, but realised that Shen Shuyao had issued a warrant, so he could only help his bros — after he had given his lifesaving money to his loyal dog subordinates, he threw away his phone, didn’t contact anyone, and disappeared from the world with a pair of clean hands.
Upon hearing this, Wei Ziqian was stunned. That kind of holy mother-like setting of illuminating the earth didn’t seem like something that he could do, and why was this plot so abusive! It’s almost as if the golden finger belonging to him was taken away by someone else! And when did his Yaoyao become an underworld young prince, and why were you so ruthless!?
Especially when he thought about the other man’s beast-like behaviour last night — Wei Ziqian really couldn’t take feeling like this kind of <The Sweetheart Wife of the Underworld Prince Escapes>!
For a moment, Wei Ziqian was speechless, looking at Zhao Yan, who had a rude and loose tongue, and he knew that the one who did all these obviously wasn’t the him right now who had his core changed, but he still felt a moment of guilt.
“Then, what about you, Xiao Yan? How are you now?”
Wei Ziqian still noticed that the other man was still wearing a neatly crafted suit, with his hair meticulously combed, a healthy glow on his round face, and no matter how he looked at it, he didn’t look like a laid-off worker who had lost his backing.
“Thanks to you, I finally got a new Mercedes Benz S600.”
“……” That money was for you to escape and for your old age, you bastard!
“Also, Mr. Shen is a good boss, and unlike you, knows how to discern people. Now, I’m Mr. Shen’s assistant and consultant, and am about to take over your ‘previous’ company as its head. It had already been successfully acquired by Mr. Shen, and is continuing to operate according to the previous methods.” Zhao Yan calmly pushed his glasses, “I won’t destroy it like you did, please be rest assured.”
Why are you so bad, why are you so bad!? Where was the miracle teammate that came with equipment we agreed on! We have a spy amongst us!
“Also, since we once had a boss-subordinate relationship, I had wanted to sneak you away after meeting you. But Ziqian, you know, humans are selfish. Please take care.” Wei Ziqian, who was extremely confused, had stopped listening to him, while a look of respect appeared on Zhao Yan’s face, and he gave a graceful bow to somewhere behind Wei Ziqian, “Mr. Shen.”
Upon hearing this familiar magnetic sound, Wei Ziqian instantly felt his balls hurt and his chrysanthemum tighten. The little red and swollen chrysanthemum between his butt began to ache again, and the soreness and exhaustion that was originally ignored by him had surged up once more.
Stiffly, Wei Ziqian turned around — that cold and beautiful face that vividly showed nobility and elegance was currently, expressionlessly, facing him. His eyes were filled with gloominess and grumpiness, and even the summer sun couldn’t break through Shen Shuyao’s cold atmosphere. When Wei Ziqian first saw him, his heart was filled with happiness and love, but almost had the piss scared out of him upon seeing that expression.
This bastard looked as if he wanted to take him, then kill him, then take and kill him at the same time, then cut him into eight pieces! How horrible! Wei Ziqian thought, horrified, whether it was too late to call for help, then, he spotted two bodyguards dressed in black and several subordinates standing behind him–
Hero, spare my life!!
Other than the few of them in front of the building, all the pedestrians were frightened away by the depressing atmosphere on this side, and didn’t dare to get close. For a moment, apart from the chirping of cicadas, the entire area fell into a terrifying silence.
Where did you go, my beautiful and elegant golden finger, you little minx! Wei Ziqian suffered both mental and physical damage. His MP and HP values were at the minimum, and he tried his best to shrink his tall body to a smaller size. His legs felt as if there were pins and needles prickling all over him, and it made him want to just fall to the ground and sit down — but he didn’t dare!
In the end, the one that couldn’t stand the stalemate was Wei Ziqian, and his handsome face turned red as he stuttered.
“To- today’s wind is a little noisy.”
Nonononono! Noisy your ass!
Give me a knife, and I’ll take care of myself immediately. No need for you guys to worry. Wei Ziqian wanted to stab himself.
Shen Shuyao’s eyes narrowed, looked at the other person’s tired and uncomfortable adorkable manner, sighed and felt his heart soften once again.
“En, that’s right.”
Beauty Shen’s bodyguard looked as if he had seen a ghost — Sir, now, there’s no clouds in the sky, the sun is shining, and even the leaves didn’t move at all, are you sure there’s wind?
Shen Shuyao didn’t care about how frightened his subordinates’ expression were, and just walked forward. He didn’t find it dirty as he reached out to wipe away the cold sweat on Wei Ziqian’s forehead. Then, he gently took Wei Ziqian’s hand, and frowned upon feeling the other man’s cold temperature.
“Ziqian, you look very uncomfortable. Shall I bring you up to rest?”
The reason why someone adorkable was adorkable, was because he first acted like a dork, then there the adorable followed…… Wei Ziqian was completely moved into a muddled state by the other party’s gentle and doting gesture, instantly and completely forgot the abuse his body and mind had gotten along with the dog blood fate, nodded without hesitation in a boot-licking manner, and after he nodded, his IQ finally returned to him, and he fell into a state of being betrayed by himself.
