Chapter 23


Translated by Seafall (Cf411)


Han Jin took the hangover medicine in a frantic manner.
The way he acted made Zheng Jue once think that he was not getting a hangover medicine but an elixir of life.


“Young Master Han, what do you want?” After drinking the hangover medicine, Zheng Jue’s mind finally became clearer and his expression became a little more defensive.


When Han Jin saw him like this, his expression couldn’t help but sink, “What do you think I would do? Do you think I’m just a shameless person who takes advantage of you?”


Zheng Jue frowned, and for some reason, he felt a little sullen, “I didn’t mean that, Young Master Han.
Thank you for coming to see me today, but you and I are not in the same way(1), so it’s meaningless to be forced to be together.”


“It’s meaningless?” Han Jin gritted his teeth and soon stood up, “Zheng Jue, is this your answer?”


Zheng Jue slowly raised his head and squinted his eyes at Han Jin, who was standing opposite him.
His originally handsome and gentle expression was dyed with a layer of anger.
With a faint panic in his eyes, Zheng Jue didn’t know why, but his heartbeat suddenly stopped for a moment.


Originally, in his eyes, he and Han Jin were like two disjoint parallel lines without any intersection between them, but now, looking at the person in front of him and listening to his aggressive words, the demons who were fighting at first in his mind suddenly stopped.


He heard his own calm voice as if it was a century from the real world.


“Young Master Han, that’s not what I meant.”


Han Jin’s expression suddenly stopped.
He looked at Zheng Jue in disbelief, and then, there was a touch of ecstasy in his eyes.
He almost stumbled over from the other end of the coffee table before he pulled Zheng Jue’s collar excitedly, and then on the verge of almost gnashing his teeth, he whispered in a low voice, “What do you mean? What the hell do you mean?!”


Zheng Jue was forced to raise his head following Han Jin’s action.
He was honestly extremely annoyed, but he was too exhausted at this time and had no ability to resist, so he could only frown and said, “Let me go!” His tone sounded very impatient.


Han Jin also sensed the inappropriateness of his behavior and abruptly suppressed his excitement, then took a deep breath and slowly loosened Zheng Jue’s collar.


Seeing Han Jin’s movement, Zheng Jue fell back to the sofa and couldn’t help but sigh in relief.
However, Han Jin’s expression became more and more nervous, “What do you mean?” Although his tone was no longer as frenetic as before, he could still hear a hint of urgency from it.


When Zheng Jue heard this, he couldn’t help but feel a little annoyed by his previous answer.
He really didn’t understand why he said that before, like he was bewitched by a ghost.


It’s just that the matter had come to this point, and the arrow had already been sent off from the string.
If he changes his words again, Han Jin would probably hate him even if he was interested in him, so he could only make this one mistake.
Zheng Jue slowly closed his eyes.
For some reason, he seemed to be finally able to breathe a sigh of relief in his heart.
All of a sudden, he soon found peace.


“Young Master Han, I don’t have any prejudice against you, and I don’t hate getting along with you.
I was very happy to be friends with you before, but I can’t say anything about other things.
After all, in my life for more than 20 years, I have had no experience in this area.
Please forgive me.”


Zheng Jue spoke very vaguely, but Han Jin’s eyes still lit up more and more.
He had been pestering Zheng Jue for so long and felt that there was almost no hope.
At this time, when Han Jin suddenly heard Zheng Jue say this, even though he didn’t accept him in a real sense, he was very satisfied with such a small improvement.


“Zheng Jue, I know you have no experience in this area before, but don’t worry, as long as you don’t reject me, sooner or later you will be mine,” Han Jin looked down at Zheng Jue, with a trace of crazy stubbornness in his eyes.


Zheng Jue’s eyelids jumped when he heard this, and he glanced at Han Jin with a frown, wondering if he really made the right decision.
Why does this person always deserve such a beating when he talks?


“Young Master Han, you don’t need to shout these slogans to me.
It’s very late today, so you go back first.
I’m going to rest,” Zheng Jue stroked his forehead tiredly.


At this moment, a smile appeared on Han Jin’s face.
He glanced at Zheng Jue and found that there was indeed a strong blue shadow under his eyes.
His heart couldn’t help but soften his tone, “Alright, then I’ll go first.
Have a good rest.”


Zheng Jue smiled stiffly.
Han Jin is really such a humanoid murder weapon.


When Han Jin finally left, Zheng Jue finally relaxed.
He slowly stood up from the sofa, and his figure was still a little unstable, so he had to hold the back of the sofa with one hand before he could stand firmly.


He stood alone in his house, looking around the spacious and luxurious room.
However, he felt a little tired for some reason.
Is this really what he worked so hard for, money? Wealth? To become one of the upper-class people?


Maybe so, Zheng Jue thought a little dryly.




For the next few days, Zheng Jue’s life was very strange.
Maybe Han Jin misunderstood something that day because he has been bombarding Zheng Jue with phone calls.


Even if there were no less than ten phone calls a day, the tone of each call is getting more and more strange, just like now.


“Aaron, do you have time tonight? Caltex has an auction tonight.
Do you want to come with me? I have a calligraphy and painting that I wanted to buy for my father,” His gentle tone made Zheng Jue’s hair stand upright.


“Han Jin, can you speak well? I’m not your girlfriend or lover or something,” Zheng Jue’s tone was a little exasperated.


Han Jin chuckled deeply, with a hint of frivolity, “Of course, I know that you are not my girlfriend, even if you are, you should be my boyfriend.”


Zheng Jue felt that the blue veins on his forehead were jumping very happily as he really wanted to pull Han Jin out of the phone and beat him up again.


“Young Master Han, don’t call me if you have nothing to do.
I still have a lot of work to do,” Zheng Jue tried his best to maintain his last bit of good manners.


“Then, are you free tonight?” Han Jin still insisted and did not relax.


Zheng Jue rubbed his temples helplessly.
He suddenly realized that ever since that day, the thickness of Han Jin’s face has skyrocketed.
For someone with a thin skin like him, he really couldn’t do anything about him.


“I’m free after seven o’clock tonight.
Before seven o’clock, I have dinner to catch up,” Zheng Jue looked at his schedule.
At five o’clock in the afternoon, he was going to talk to Lu Yunxing about the release of “Assassin”.


“Seven o’clock?” Han Jin’s tone seemed to be somewhat dissatisfied, “I still want to have dinner with you.
Can this dinner be dismissed?”


Zheng Jue listened to his slightly arrogant tone and felt a little displeased, “It’s a very important work, so it can’t be pushed away,” His tone also became cold for a moment.


Han Jin didn’t realize what was wrong with Zheng Jue, but Zheng Jue’s refusal also made him very dissatisfied.
He couldn’t help frowning slightly then turned his face to look at Zhou Chengan, who was about to roll his eyes in frustration, and said, “Well, I’ll find you at seven o’clock.
Where’s the location?”


Zheng Jue didn’t want to argue with Han Jin anymore, so he calmly said the location.


When Han Jin hung up the phone, he turned to look at Zhou Chengan, “What are you just frowning for?”


Zhou Chengan smiled bitterly, thinking that if he didn’t frown, then this man would be single for the rest of his life.


“Zheng Jue is busy at work, and he is not you, so how can he just push the dinner party casually? You also know that those old foxes in Hong Kong, if he is not being careful, then he will suffer a loss.
Now that he has finally gained a firm foothold, you should let him relax,” Zhou Chengan said bitterly.


Han Jin’s expression turned a little black after hearing this, “Who would dare to treat him like this?”


Zhou Chengan saw that Han Jin was in a hurry and quickly persuaded, “What are you getting on? He is also a newcomer in the business.
You really treat him as your little lover.


Han Jin’s expression slightly eased, “I see.”


Zhou Chengan frowned and looked at Han Jin.
His mind couldn’t exactly guess what Han Jin really did understand.




The dinner between Zheng Jue and Lu Yunxing didn’t end until past half seven o’clock.
In fact, the distribution of a film like “Assassin” is not a problem at all, but the problem is that there are too many investors, and their minds were not aligned.


Zheng Jue didn’t really care about this very much.
Even if he took out that money to obtain a partner like Lu Yunxing, it’s worth it.
Besides, in any case, this film won’t go down the drain.


The last group of people discussed it for a long time and still handed it over to Huaxing for distribution.
Lu Yunxing has a lot of prestige.
Although Huaxing is not a company specializing in distribution, how about its status? The movie theater will give Lu Yunxing a bit of face anyway.


Zheng Jue went out with this group of people, checking his phone while walking, thinking that Han Jin was quite quiet today.
He was half an hour late, and yet, there was no phone bombing.


However, before this idea lasted for two minutes, Zheng Jue couldn’t wait to slap himself.
He stood behind Lu Yunxing and looked at the handsome man who was slowly walking over.
He only felt like there was a fire burning in his heart, and it kept burning from his heart to his face.


Lu Yunxing also watched someone approaching from a distance, and when he took a closer look, it turned out to be Han Jin.
He couldn’t help but be a little surprised, but since he was an old fox, he greeted him with a smile, “Young Master Han, it’s such a coincidence, are you eating here too? Don’t forget Young Master Han’s order,” Lu Yunxing turned and said to the restaurant manager who was following him.
This is Huaxing’s industry.


Han Jin smiled very politely and replied in a very polite tone, “Mr.
Lu doesn’t have to be so polite.
I came here today to find someone, so I could only disappoint Mr.
Lu’s wishes.”


Lu Yunxing’s eyebrows moved slightly.
He came to find someone but walked towards him.
The person he was probably looking for was among the people behind him.


“Where is he? I don’t know whom Young Master Han is looking for?” Lu Yunxing pretended to ask that unintentionally.


Han Jin’s expression darkened slightly, and his eyes were fixed directly behind Lu Yunxing.


Lu Yunxing followed Han Jin’s gaze, and it turned out to be Zheng Jue who has a calm face.
He knew that Zheng Jue and Han Jin had a good relationship, but he didn’t know that it would be so good that he asked Zheng Jue to come to him personally.
Lu Yunxing’s heart was boiling, but the smile on his face did not change, “It turned out to be Mr.
You’re just in time, our business is over.”


“Really? I thought you guys would be finished at seven o’clock, so I made an appointment with Mr.
Zheng at that time, but I didn’t expect to wait for so long.
Aaron, let’s go.”


As soon as Han Jin’s words came out, the gazes around Zheng Jue became complicated in an instant.


Zheng Jue clenched his fist slightly.
The gazes of the people around him made him feel like he was sitting on pins and needles.
He pursed his lips reluctantly and said in a low voice, “I made Young Master Han wait.
It’s my fault today.”





The author has something to say: Hey, I read something called nutrient solution before.
I don’t know what it is for.
Even when I read popular science, I still couldn’t understand it.
However, I heard that it doesn’t cost money and yet still may have some effect, so I’m here to beg in a daze.


Look at my cute face.

Same way (终都不是一路人) refers to like-mindedness (吴诗妍好, 2020).
It is also called a one-way person.
Even if you are your own person, you are a person on the same boat, and if you go in one direction on one road, and so does he, then you are all on the same road.
Hence, being called people in the same way.



Seafall (Cf411)'s notes:
