In the F International Smart Technology Building, Jiang Zhen was listening to his subordinate, Mai Yingge, report the situation. He was sitting in a leather chair by the window, leaning back against the chair with his legs crossed and his elbows resting lazily on the armrest of the chair. He looked relaxed and lazy.
Behind him stood a pure-blooded black lady.
This woman was over 1.8 meters tall and had a supermodel-like figure. She was wearing a white tight-fitting halter top and a pair of high-waisted work pants that elongated her already impressive legs.
She was Mai Yingge, one of Jiang Zhen’s most trusted subordinates. Her job was to collect all the information for Jiang Zhen. Mai Yingge was called “Hawkeye” by the people under her. She was Jiang Zhen’s Hawkeye and specialized in catching those disobedient rabbits for Jiang Zhen.
Mai Yingge’s hometown was in Africa. She was an orphan and was adopted by a ruthless dogfight boss from a young age. If that boss gave her a bowl of rice, she would risk her life for three meals a day.
From the age of seven, Mai Yingge had been fighting with hyenas. If she won, she would have a full meal, and if she lost, she would become a hyena’s dinner.
The dark days lasted until Mai Yingge was 19 years old. When she was 19 years old, Jiang Zhen and Aaron ruined Boss Black’s dogfight and saved six dogfighters, including Mai Yingge.
After the others obtained their freedom, they all left. Only Mai Yingge kept working with Jiang Zhen. Jiang Zhen gave her a name and gave her a second life. Mai Yingge swore to follow Jiang Zhen!
Mai Yingge said, “Dong Bi is a core figure in the R & D department of Jiangdong Pharmaceuticals. He is also the most valued and cherished talent in Jiangdong Pharmaceuticals.”
Jiang Zhen had heard of a genius in the research and development department of Jiang Dong Pharmaceuticals. He was young but had already successfully led the research and development of several drugs. The most famous one was “Lung Lick”.
Jiang Zhen naturally had his own spies in Jiangdong Pharmaceuticals. He asked Mai Yingge, “Is it easy to move Dong Bi?” The so-called “move” meant prying into the corner.
Mai Yingge’s pink lips pursed tightly. She shook her head with a serious expression and said, “This person is very difficult to deal with. Be it money or a bright future, we can’t convince him.” After a pause, Mai Yingge added, “I’ve never seen someone so devoted.”
Hearing this, Jiang Zhen tapped the ground with the tip of his toes and used the momentum to push his office chair around to face Mai Yingge. Even though Jiang Zhen was sitting and Mai Yingge was standing, the high and mighty king aura exuded from Jiang Zhen still made Mai Yingge admire him.
Jiang Zhen suddenly smiled and asked in amusement, “More loyal than you? Even to death?”
Mai Yingge thought for a moment, shook her head with a serious expression, and said, “That can’t be. My loyalty to Mr. Jiang can be verified by heaven and earth!” Mai Yingge loved to watch martial arts television dramas. When she expressed her loyalty, she always liked to represent herself in the heroines of martial arts dramas. Jiang Zhen didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at her heroic words.
Mai Yingge told Jiang Zhen in detail all the information she had found about Dong Bi. She said, “Dong Bi is 35 years old this year. He was born in Kunshan City and graduated from Nanxing Medical University. He is Jiang Guchuan’s senior and junior. Due to this relationship, Jiang Guchuan successfully poached Dong Bi.”
“In recent years, there have been many pharmaceutical companies who have extended an olive branch to Dong Bi. Every company has offered better conditions than Jiang Dong Pharmaceuticals. But Dong Bi has never been tempted. I think this is because he has a deep relationship with Jiang Guchuan and is unwilling to leave.”
Jiang Zhen crossed his arms and narrowed his eyes slightly, revealing a thoughtful expression. Seeing that he didn’t speak or dare to speak, Mai Yingge quietly waited for him to end his contemplation.
After a moment, Jiang Zhen suddenly asked in surprise, “Jiang Guchuan graduated from the Nanxing Business School. This Dong Bi is a student from the Medical University. How can the two of them be fellow disciples?” How are they from the same school?
Mai Yingge seemed to have thought of something and hurriedly acknowledged before saying, “It’s like this. Although they are from different majors and schools, they have a common teacher called Professor Su. This Professor Su is very impressive. He is a double doctorate in medicine and economics, a professor in a business school, and also an invited lecturer at a medical university. As a result, these two are martial brothers.”
Jiang Zhen, who was originally sitting lazily, suddenly let go of his crossed legs. His body leaned slightly forward like a leopard that was about to jump up to capture its prey. He exuded an oppressive and dangerous aura.
Mai Yingge saw that Jiang Zhen suddenly became dangerous and instinctively straightened her back. She asked cautiously and puzzledly, “What’s the matter, Mr. Jiang?”
Jiang Zhen’s sharp eyes were fixed on Mai Yingge’s shiny black eyes. He said word by word, “Who do you think their mentor is?”
“Professor Su…” Mai Yingge thought for a moment and added,” Su Yudi. ”
“Su Yudi?” Jiang Zhen suddenly stood up.
“How can this be…” he muttered sleepily before pacing to the window. Staring at the traffic downstairs, he felt a thick fog in his heart.
Mai Yingge asked in confusion, “Mr. Jiang, is this Professor Su very suspicious?”
“No.” Jiang Zhen raised his left hand and turned his back to Mai Yingge. He said, “Go down first and wait for my notice.”
Mai Yingge left in her sneakers.
The huge office instantly became quiet. Jiang Zhen could hear the sizzling sound of the computer console behind his desk. He pondered for a moment, unable to come up with a solution. Only then did he return to his desk and turn on the black screen.
Sitting in front of the computer in a daze, Jiang Zhen opened the internal employment form of the Nanxing Business School and found Su Yudi’s personal information.
After reading Su Yudi’s information, Jiang Zhen realized that Jiang Bi’s adoptive father was actually so outstanding. Su Yudi graduated from the Capital University of Medical Sciences and didn’t continue to study medicine for some reason. Instead, he successfully entered the Institute of Economics and finally obtained a PhD in economics.
When he was 30 years old, Su Yudi became a professor at Nanxing University’s Business School and picked up his beloved medicine. He used four years to successfully get a PhD at Nanxing Medical University.
In short, he was a god of studies!
Gu Chuanchuan’s case had yet to be investigated and there was no hope for him to start court soon. Han Wangwang had been idle recently and started to handle some trivial cases.
She went to help someone fight a divorce lawsuit today and dealt with the domestic abuse scene tomorrow. Every day was exciting and fulfilling.
It was raining that day. On the way home from work, Han Wangwang stared at the raindrops on the windshield and suddenly wanted to drink a bowl of steaming hot chicken soup.
She wanted chicken soup, so she turned the car into the market and chose a chicken. The lady boss said that her chicken was an old hen from the countryside. Han Wangwang couldn’t tell if it was real or fake, so she just bought it.
She returned home with the processed chicken and walked out of the lift. She saw a black umbrella standing at the entrance of the house. The water from the umbrella landed in the umbrella bucket and accumulated a layer. It looked like the owner of the umbrella had come once.
Han Wangwang stared at the umbrella and smiled.
She walked to the door and was about to open it by password when she thought of something and knocked on the door.
She knocked three to four times before she heard footsteps coming from the door.
Han Wangwang hurriedly tidied up her messy hair. When she heard the sound of the door opening, she looked up and smiled charmingly.
However, that smile disappeared when she realized that the person who opened the door was Han Junjun. “Why are you here?” Han Wangwang’s mood changed from happy to disappointed.
an Junjun supported himself with one hand on the door and the other on the door frame. He looked down at Han Wangwang with his height advantage and purposely frowned. “Why? Are you very disappointed to see me? Who do you think it is? You’re smiling like you won the lottery. Who are you showing it to?”
Before Han Wangwang could speak, Han Junjun sneered again. “Han Wangwang, it’s so different to be in a relationship. You don’t want a younger brother now that you have a man. Why are you so romantic?”
Han Wangwang pushed Han Junjun away and stomped into the house. She kicked her high heels away.
She took off her shoes coolly and said, “Yes, I don’t want a younger brother now that I have a man. If you have the ability, go and find a woman too. I don’t mind you not wanting an elder sister when you have a woman!”
Han Wangwang entered the house barefooted. She looked up and saw Jiang Zhen standing in the aisle between the dining room and the kitchen in an apron, looking at her with a smile in his eyes.
Jiang Zhen was wearing a black shirt and the dark green apron that Han Wangwang had chosen hung on his thin body. He looked very charming. Perhaps he had heard Han Wangwang say “I have a man” and his expression was slightly sly.
Han Wangwang blushed.
“Are you off work?” Jiang Zhen’s voice was cold like raindrops pattering outside the window.
Han Wangwang suddenly felt like drinking chicken soup.
Drink chicken soup with Jiang Zhen.
Han Wangwang hurriedly bent down to pick up the high heels that had fallen to the ground, then put on her sandals. She stared at Jiang Zhen with a red face and asked him, “Is that umbrella outside your door yours?”
“Mmm.” Jiang Zhen stared at Han Junjun behind Han Wangwang and said, “I can’t drive the car in. I can only park it outside. When I entered the community with an umbrella, I happened to see Junjun running towards the community without an umbrella.”
After Jiang Zhen finished speaking, Han Junjun added, “Then I carried an umbrella with your man back to the house.” Han Junjun even winked at Han Wangwang provocatively.
Han Wangwang snorted and complained. “What’s the big deal about holding an umbrella? We even have the same blanket.”
Hearing this, Han Junjun suddenly looked up angrily and stared at Jiang Zhen. His gaze was like he was sizing up a pervert. Jiang Zhen felt slightly guilty and excused himself saying that the pork trotters in the pot were going to be stewed until they were mush, before turning to go to the kitchen.
Han Wangwang carried the chicken and silently followed him into the kitchen.
Han Junjun stood in the corridor and asked them, “You guys slept! Jiang Zhen! You really touched my elder sister?” After Han Junjun knew that Jiang Bi was a man, his attitude towards Jiang Zhen instantly changed. He no longer had the respect, love, and flattery from before.
A beauty turning into his own kind, what’s there to be nice about!
Jiang Zhen pretended not to hear.
Han Wangwang said, “No!”
Han Junjun didn’t believe it.
He ran to Han Wangwang’s bedroom. Once he entered the bedroom, he saw Jiang Zhen’s shirt hanging on the clothes rack. He was instantly enraged.
They were all cohabiting!
Han Junjun hurriedly opened the bedside table and found the unopened condom inside. Only then did he heave a sigh of relief.
But just as he heaved a sigh of relief, he started to worry again. He couldn’t help but fall into a problem—
Is this box still the same box?
Could it be that he had used up the previous box and bought another one?
Han Junjun’s expression instantly turned interesting.
He rushed out and pulled Han Wangwang out of the kitchen.
Han Junjun locked Han Wangwang into the bathroom and threw the condom into Han Wangwang’s arms. He scolded her. “Are you really sleeping together? Did you buy this condom again? Han Wangwang, you’re only 23! You’re still a little kid!”
Han Wangwang was stunned for two seconds before grabbing the condom and saying, “No! He refused to touch me. He said that he can only touch me after we officially get married…”
Han Junjun saw the disappointment on Han Wangwang’s face and was instantly choked. He pointed at Han Wangwang’s forehead and nodded. He said resentfully, “You still regret it? You can’t wait to give yourself away?”
Han Wangwang slapped Han Junjun’s hand away and said coldly, “Where are the rules? I am your elder sister. Don’t go overboard. I didn’t do it, I really didn’t do it. You can rest assured, right?”
Only after hearing Han Wangwang’s words did Han Junjun confirm that the two of them really didn’t take that last step.
He leaned against the sink and said, “Sister, Jiang Zhen is not an ordinary boy. Although he is only a year older than you, he is very shrewd and far from what those hotheads can compare to. After so many years, have any of us realized that he is a man?”
Han Wangwang opened her mouth to speak up for Jiang Zhen, but realized that she had nothing to say.
an Junjun added. “The people who happened at the Jiang and Sheng families’ Marriage Gathering were all live-streamed online. Seeing the actions of the Jiang family, I feel angry for Jiang Zhen. But Elder Sister, although Jiang Zhen is pitiful, he is also very scary.”
Han Wangwang was very unconvinced. She asked, “How is it scary?”
“How is it not scary?” Han Junjun’s handsome face darkened. He lowered his voice and analyzed everything in detail with her. “Look, if he can investigate the truth of those matters back then, it means that he has a brain. He can find all the witnesses involved in those matters back then and make them honestly confess everything. This means that he has a way. Moreover, he has already found out the truth long ago. After knowing such a heart-wrenching and shocking truth, he can still endure it until the marriage between the Jiang and Sheng families is held. This shows that he is a shrewd, scheming, and endurance person!”
“A person who has brains, means, and knows how to endure. If you fight with him, you will be eaten until you don’t even have bones left. You won’t even know what happened!” These words were Han Junjun’s heartfelt words and also the reason why he came to look for Han Wangwang today.
He came to tell Han Wangwang everything about the pros and cons. He wanted her to recognize Jiang Zhen’s true colors and not jump into Jiang Zhen’s trap.
If Jiang Zhen could really be devoted to his elder sister, that would be fine. But what if Jiang Zhen had other motives?
“Sister, break up with him. Really. Jiang Zhen is not suitable for you. He is too scary. If he is devoted to you, your life in the future will be better. If he has other motives for you, what will you do? Don’t you know how Jiang Weimin treats his two wives? Jiang Zhen is Jiang Weimin’s child. They have the same vicious blood in their bones. If he really hates you one day, what will you do?”
“Elder Sister, I’m really afraid…” Han Junjun suddenly stopped talking.
He was afraid that Han Wangwang would be with Jiang Zhen. He was afraid that Jiang Zhen would be the second Jiang Weimin. He was afraid that Han Wangwang would become the second Lan Ruoyun. He was afraid that one day, when his elder sister died, she would not even die with a complete body!
Han Wangwang felt very upset when she heard this. She believed that Jiang Zhen was good and would treat her well. But just because she believed him didn’t mean that Han Junjun would believe her.
Han Yueyun and his wife thought the same way Han Junjun thought. Han Wangwang suddenly realized how difficult it was for her to get together with Jiang Zhen.
Han Junjun added. “Do you know? Over the past few days, someone has organized a vote for the girls to choose the most wanted and least wanted man among Wangdong City’s wealthy young masters? The president of Sharp Entertainment, Li Feng, won first place because he was handsome, rich, and single. Cheng Yanmo from Chuan Dong Group became second because he had divorced once. And among the people who didn’t want to marry the most, Jiang Zhen actually far exceeded that rapist Gu Chuanchuan and became first!”
“In the hearts of unmarried girls, Jiang Zhen is actually more dangerous than a rapist. Haven’t you thought of why?” Han Junjun revealed this because he wanted to completely cut off Han Wangwang’s love for Jiang Zhen and make her realize how dangerous Jiang Zhen was so that she could cut ties with him.
Han Wangwang was speechless when she heard this. She said, “What nonsense are these comments?”
Han Junjun saw that Han Wangwang still couldn’t see the truth and his face darkened in anger. He slammed the door and went out. He walked out of the room and saw that Jiang Zhen was still wearing that apron and leaning against the wall by the door. His expression was slightly unnatural, but he quickly regained his composure.
“Did you hear everything?” Han Junjun asked him.
Jiang Zhen didn’t expect Han Junjun to ask such a straightforward question. He thought for a moment, then nodded and admitted, “Mmm, I heard everything.”
Han Junjun felt awkward for a moment.
But he relaxed again and said to Jiang Zhen, “I just don’t agree with you being with my elder sister. Don’t blame me for being petty. It’s just that your Jiang family’s genes are too bad. You are Jiang Weimin’s child after all. You are not a reassuring person. I don’t want to see my elder sister fall into deep waters.”
“Jiang Zhen, you might not be a bad person, but you have a bad family background.”
With that, Han Junjun left.
After he left, Han Wangwang walked out of the room.
Han Wangwang stared at Jiang Zhen uneasily. She nervously pinched the waist of her shirt and comforted Jiang Zhen softly. “Jiang Zhen, my brother is still young. He…”
“He’s right.” Jiang Zhen interrupted Han Wangwang’s self-comfort.
He walked up to Han Wangwang and looked down at her snow-white face.
Jiang Zhen cupped Han Wangwang’s cheek and said, “As he said, I am Jiang Weimin’s child. Jiang Weimin’s blood flows in my body and I am dirty.”
Han Wangwang was anxious and instinctively said, “No, I know what kind of person you are!”
“What do you know?” Jiang Zhen’s face turned expressionless. His gaze as he looked at her was cold and strange. He said in an unpredictable tone, “Before discovering the truth, my mother also thought that my father was a good person and someone worth entrusting. Han Xi…”
Jiang Zhen’s fingers scratched Han Wangwang’s tender arm gently. His neatly trimmed nails were short but very sharp. It was as if he could cut Han Wangwang’s neck with just a little force.
“Han Xi, perhaps one day, when you wake up, you will realize that I have been lying to you all along.”
Han Wangwang trembled under his fingertips. She didn’t know if she was afraid or angry.
Jiang Zhen’s expression was cold and solemn. His eyes darkened slightly as he hinted. “Have you forgotten how I used you when you were 15 years old? I knew that you would bring about a fatal disaster if you carried that thing, but I still did that.”
“Han Xi, you know very well how ruthless I am.”
Han Wangwang suddenly slapped Jiang Zhen.
That slap made Jiang Zhen’s head explode.
Jiang Zhen was stunned for a moment before slowly turning to look at Han Wangwang.
Han Wangwang said, “Jiang Zhen, don’t degrade yourself like this. I don’t hate the ruthless you, nor do I hate the scheming you, nor do I hate you who used me. But I hate you who gave up on yourself.”
Jiang Zhen was slightly stunned.
Han Wangwang tiptoed slightly and grabbed Jiang Zhen’s collar. She looked up at him seriously and fiercely. “Jiang Zhen, anyone in this world can slander us, but we can’t slander ourselves! When we don’t even acknowledge ourselves, this person will die.”
“I won’t allow you to give up on yourself.”
Jiang Zhen’s Adam’s apple bobbed. He suddenly pulled Han Wangwang into his arms and pressed her back hard. He rested his chin on the top of her head and sighed. He murmured helplessly, “I just feel that such a dirty and unbearable me is not worthy of you. Wangwang, you deserve better.”
Everyone could tell that Jiang Zhen was not worthy of Han Wangwang.
Han Wangwang’s family background could not be summarized simply by the word “innocent”. Her great-grandfather, grandfather, father, and little uncle were all talented people who had shed their blood for the country. She was also a math genius, smart, outstanding, and beautiful.
A girl like her deserved a better match.
Han Wangwang silently hugged Jiang Zhen and said, “How do you know that you are not the person who is most worthy of me? Jiang Zhen, as long as you don’t take the wrong path, you are the person worthy of my love.”
As long as you abide by the law and don’t do anything intolerable, you are the best.
Han Wangwang’s slap woke Jiang Zhen up.
He couldn’t wait to settle everything and then go to Shunchen to meet Han Yueyun and his wife with his greatest sincerity. Even if the entire world felt that he wasn’t worthy of Han Wangwang, it didn’t matter. He just needed to convince Han Wangwang’s parents and he would get the world’s approval.
The chicken soup took a long time to brew.
Jiang Zhen and Han Wangwang were huddled on the sofa watching a movie and drinking chicken soup when his cell phone suddenly rang.
Jiang Zhen picked up his cell phone and saw that the caller was Han Zhan. He put down the bowl of chicken soup and said to Han Wangwang, “Your little uncle called me.”
“Why did he call you?” Han Wangwang’s heart skipped a beat. “Could he be here to persuade you to break up with me?”
Jiang Zhen didn’t think so at first. With Han Wangwang’s reminder, he couldn’t help thinking in this direction. He picked up the call uneasily, prepared to be persuaded by Han Zhan to break up.
The call went through.
Han Zhan’s deep voice sounded. “Is Mr. Jiang busy? If there’s nothing urgent, please come to Imperial Dragon Mountain. My wife recalled something that happened on the cruise that night and wants to tell you.”
Hearing this, the uneasiness in Jiang Zhen’s eyes instantly turned to grief. “What did Mrs. Han remember?”
“It’s not convenient to talk over the phone. Let’s talk when we meet.”
After hanging up, Jiang Zhen pushed the bowl of chicken soup to Han Wangwang and said, “You wash the dishes. I’m going to Imperial Dragon Mountain.”
Han Wangwang stood up and put on her slippers as she cleaned the dishes. “Wait for me.”
Han Wangwang washed the dishes and rushed to Imperial Dragon Mountain with Jiang Zhen.
It was almost 10pm by the time they arrived at Imperial Dragon Mountain.
Han Wangwang and Jiang Zhen entered the villa under Butler Cai’s lead. The three of them walked on the wide asphalt road and saw a slender woman standing under the lawn coffee umbrella at the pool.
That woman was wearing a dark blue silk dress with shoulder-length hair. From the back, she didn’t look like Song Ci or the children’s butler, Dong Yang (Yan Qingxiu).
Han Wangwang asked Butler Cai, “Who is that at the coffee table?”
Butler Cai replied, “An important guest from Junyang City. Her name is Ji Qing and she is a hypnotist.”
Han Wangwang knew that the Ji Family in Yang City was a famous medical expert. Their status was slightly higher than the Long Family in Wangdong City. The Long Family specialized in Traditional Chinese Medicine, while the Ji Family specialized in Western Medicine. Their family members were all the No.1 in many medical fields in the country.
Seeing that Jiang Zhen didn’t know much about the Ji Family, Han Wangwang roughly explained the situation of the Ji Family to Jiang Zhen. Knowing that Ji Qing was actually so powerful, Jiang Zhen was both impressed and puzzled.
Why did Mr. Han invite this hypnotist over?
The three of them walked to the coffee table.
Song Ci was chatting with Ji Qing. Seeing that Jiang Zhen had arrived, Song Ci introduced him to them. “Come, Wangwang, Mr. Jiang, let’s get to know each other.”
Two young men stood beside Han Zhan and Song Ci and heard Song Ci say, “Doctor Ji, this is Han Xi, my husband’s niece. This is Mr. Jiang.”
Han Wangwang and Jiang Zhen greeted Ji Qing. Before she could ask why Ji Qing was here, she heard Ji Qing say, “I’ve long heard that the Imperial Dragon Villa’s design is exquisite. I have to take a good look then. When I go back, I can show off to my Mr. Qiao. Mr. Jiang, you guys chat.”
“Alright, Butler Cai, accompany Doctor Ji around.”
Butler Cai led Ji Qing to the villa garden.
Song Ci asked Han Wangwang, “You two happened to be together when your little uncle called?”
Jiang Zhen answered, “I ate at her place.”
Hearing this, Han Zhan frowned and asked, “Just dinner?” He looked at the two young men suspiciously and said bluntly, “What does it look like to live together without getting married?”
It was rare for Song Ci to agree with Han Zhan’s view. “You have to avoid arousing suspicion. Both unmarried men and women have to take note of their image.”
Han Wangwang and Jiang Zhen listened obediently and didn’t dare to retort. Han Wangwang looked honest, but she kept muttering in her heart: Little Uncle and Little Aunt are so strict. In the future, when Han Miao and Han Jun fall in love, I wonder how strict they will be.
