Chapter 33


Patriarch Han

Translated by Seafall (Cf411)

 

After Zheng Jue and Wen Huaan finished their meal, he politely declined his invitation to stay overnight and left the Wen’s mansion.
Wen Huaan continued sending him to the gate, which truly showed his courtesy to others.
Zheng Jue seemed to be flattered, but in fact, he couldn’t stop sneering in his heart.
Wen Huaan is indeed an extraordinary person as he is able to bend and stretch compared to a large number of people.

 

If this kind of character is put on by others, Zheng Jue can still say that he has strength.
However, if it is for Wen Huaan, the one who killed his father and ruined his family, with such hatred for him, his appearance right now made him hate and be disgusted with him more and more.

 

After Wen Huaan returned, Zheng Jue stood at the entrance of the Wen family mansion for a while.
As he looked at this magnificent mansion, the hatred in Zheng Jue’s heart couldn’t help but boil inside it.

 

It was for these reasons that Wen Huaan betrayed his father, the man who regarded Wen Huaan as his best friend.
In fact, his father’s behavior seemed almost unbelievable to him.
Such a businessman, especially a businessman who climbed up from the bottom, did not have the slightest defense against Wen Huaan, so he was easily led into his trap and was finally strangled by the capital.

 

He will never make mistakes like that again and won’t be clouded by his emotions.
The world won’t sympathize with losers, and he’ll never allow himself to be reduced to his father’s level.

 

Zheng Jue’s eyes became resolute in an instant.
Something in his eyes seemed to have shattered at a certain moment, and the only thing left in them was indifference and resolution.

 

He turned around resolutely, got into the car, and quickly left the place.

Han Jin leaned on the balcony with a cigarette between his slender fingers, and his expression was a little lazy as he looked at the rose bushes downstairs, though there was a hint of impatience between his eyebrows.

 

At this moment, his phone suddenly rang, and when Han Jin glanced down at the caller ID, his expression which was still impatient at first brightened instantly.
He almost couldn’t wait to answer his phone and made his tone soft to the point that it was a little scary, “Aaron?”


 

Zheng Jue, who was on the other end of the phone, seemed to be frightened by his eager tone.
He couldn’t help but pause, and after a while, he finally said, “Young Master Han, if you have time tomorrow, I have something to tell you.”

 

Han Jin became excited in an instant, “I have time.
Of course, I have time.”

 

Zheng Jue’s voice was slightly cold: “That’s good.
Tomorrow afternoon at five o’clock, in Lu’an Teahouse.
See you.”

 

Han Jin didn’t hear the coldness in Zheng Jue’s tone at all because this made him so excited.
He had been pestering Zheng Jue for so long, and Zheng Jue had not taken the initiative to call him, but now, he finally invited him out alone.
Does it prove that he already has feelings for him? Han Jin had a lot of thoughts in his heart and couldn’t sit still.

 

Han Jin extinguished the cigarette in his hand, then hurriedly took the jacket on the back of the chair, and rushed out.
Just as he reached the edge of the stairs, he happened to bump into Han Zizhang, Han Jin’s father, who was about to go upstairs.

 

Han Zizhang is in his fifties this year, and his personality is very serious and upright.
Seeing Han Jin’s lack of integrity, he can’t help frowning, “It’s so late.
Where are you going?”

 

Han Jin raised his eyebrow dissatisfied, then lifted his watch to check the time and saw that it was only around nine o’clock.

 

“I’m going to Lenny.
There are some things I want to discuss with him, ” Han Jin’s tone was very cold.

 

Han Zizhang calmed down after listening to his explanation, “Chengan is a capable person, so you have to get along with him more.
It’s just that it’s so late.
What’s there to discuss?”

 

Han Jin didn’t want to talk to Han Zizhang more and just coldly glanced at him, then turned around to leave.
As soon as he continued walking downstairs, he suddenly heard Han Zizhang speak behind him, “Han Jin, don’t think I don’t know what you’re planning.
I can tell you that without the Han’s, your plan wouldn’t be successful.”

 

Han Jin’s footsteps paused as he didn’t expect Han Zizhang to monitor him.
He slowly turned his head and looked at Han Zizhang who was standing on the stairs while looking down at Han Jin.
Although his expression was calm, Han Jin knew him very well and could see the annoyance flashing in Han Zizhang’s eyes very clearly.


 

“What on earth are you trying to do?” Han Jin’s tone became colder.

 

Han Zizhang slowly took a breath.
He only had this son.
Even though he was unworthy, he had no other choice, “It will be my 55th birthday in a few days.
Please invite Zheng Jue over.”

 

When Han Zhihang spoke of Zheng Jue, Han Jin’s heart trembled, and his eyes instantly turned sharp.
He looked like a hedgehog with blown-up furs as he looked at Han Zizhang defensively, “What did you see him doing?”

 

Han Zizhang looked at him with a little dissatisfaction in his heart.
He frowned slightly and said, “What does it seem like? He’s a good person to meet.
Zheng Jue has achieved such great achievements in such a short time in Hong Kong, so he must not be an ordinary person.
What’s wrong with seeing him?”

 

Han Jin clenched his fist, and the whole person became a little irritable, “You don’t need to go around with me.
What are your plans when you see him?”

 

Han Zizhang couldn’t help but feel a little strange when he looked at him and said in confusion, “What are you doing in such a hurry? Zheng Jue has been in Hong Kong for so long and has met countless people.
What’s wrong with me seeing him?”

 

Han Jin also noticed that his emotions were wrong.
He was afraid that Han Zizhang would find out that he had unusual feelings for Zheng Jue.
If it was really discovered by Han Zizhang, then the consequences would be disastrous.

 

Han Jin took a deep breath, then suppressed his anxiety, and said solemnly, “Father, I know you have your own plans, but Zheng Jue is my good friend.
You’d better explain some things to me first.”

 

Hearing Han Jin calling him father, Han Zizhang was even more surprised.
This Zheng Jue held such a heavy weight in Han Jin’s heart that he could make Han Jin soft-spoken to him.
This made Han Zizhang become more and more concerned about this Zheng Jue.

 

It’s just that even if he cares about it, his face only has a dull expression while he warmly said, “What else can I plan? Zheng Jue is too shrewd.
I’m just afraid that you will suffer.
What are you worried about?”

 

Han Jin was relieved at this moment, and his expression returned to his previous indifference, “He is not the kind of person you said.
We are very good friends, so there will be no such situation.
He will also come on your birthday, but I hope you don’t say anything superfluous.”

 


Han Zizhang’s doubts deepened in his heart, but his expression remained calm as he answered lightly and went upstairs.

 

Han Jin stood downstairs and looked at Han Zizhang’s back.
For some unknown reason, he felt a little uncertain in his heart.
He just thought that he and Zheng Jue had not made any real progress in the past few days, so he was relieved and turned to leave.

 

Han Zizhang stood at the corner of the stairs and looked at Han Jin’s leaving figure, but his eyes were filled with desolation.
His back, which was originally straight, suddenly collapsed at this moment.
He should have had a son, but looking at him this time, it seemed as if he lost this son ten years ago.

Han Jin arrived at Zhou Chengan’s apartment at ten o’clock.
Zhou Chengan was still having a video conference with the director who was abroad, but it was all ruined by Han Jin’s sudden arrival.

 

Looking at Han Jin’s appearance who seemed like he wanted to go straight to the sky, Zhou Chengan knew that it was 80% related to Zheng Jue.

 

“What’s the matter with you?” Zhou Chengan leaned against the dining table and looked at Han Jin, while gently rubbing the bridge of his nose with his fingers with a smile on his face.

 

Han Jin coughed a few times and couldn’t help but bring a smile to his eyes, then said, “What else if it’s not Aaron? He asked me out tomorrow, so I’m gonna ask you about what gift I should bring for him there.”

 

Seeing how he couldn’t help but feel a little proud and wanted to show off, Zhou Chengan was speechless for a while.
He pressed his temple lightly and said in a low voice, “Vi, do you know that you shouldn’t be easily beaten like this!”

 

Han Jin’s expression froze, then he turned his face and glared at Zhou Chengan.
He grabbed the cigarette that he was about to take out and said fiercely, “Stop talking nonsense! Hurry up and think of a trick for me!”

 

Zhou Chengan knew what he was thinking when he looked at him like this, so he couldn’t help laughing.
He tapped the table lightly with his fingers for a moment before he whispered, “Vi, you really think of Aaron as a girl to chase.
He is a big man.
If you really buy him a bunch of flowers or something, believe it or not, it will be directly slammed into your face.”

 

When Han Jin was told by Zhou Chengan, he couldn’t help but feel a little embarrassed and angry, then loudly said, “Where did I say that I want to send him flowers? I was thinking that I was afraid of making him angry again.
Why do you think that Zheng Jue is so difficult to please? I have done so many things, but none of them are pleasing to his eyes.”


 

Speaking of this, Zhou Chengan was even more helpless, “Vi, you said that you have done so many things and none of them pleased him.
You must know that Zheng Jue is not a person who will bow down his head.
Although he looks at you and me with respect, you should know that he is not someone who has lived under people for a long time, so your arrogance will only be counterproductive.”

 

Han Jin frowned slightly when he heard this, “Where am I domineering?”

 

Zhou Chengan looked at him and smiled bitterly, “You don’t think you are domineering, but you are always in a high position, and your every move is so grand.
How can a person like Zheng Jue bear it? Vi, listen to me.
Zheng Jue is a soft-hearted person.
If you really want to be good with him, you can’t force him.”

 

Han Jin didn’t blow up anymore this time and thought about it with a solemn expression, then said, “Maybe you are right.
It’s just that…”

 

Seeing that he was a little hesitant, Zhou Chengan was also a little surprised, so he asked, “What’s the matter?”

 

“He… Han Zizhang asked about Zheng Jue today…” Han Jin rarely hesitated in talking.

 

However, Zhou Chengan felt a sudden shock in his heart.
He was still slightly sleepy, but this immediately woke him up right now, “Your father asked about Zheng Jue?” Zhou Chengan frowned.

 

“He wanted me to invite Zheng Jue to his birthday banquet, saying that he wanted to talk to Zheng Jue for fear that something was wrong with him,” Han Jin looked a little disgusted.

 

Zhou Chengan breathed a sigh of relief after hearing this, “So that’s the case.
I think he knows something, so Vi, you have to pay attention.
Before you can become the master of the Han family, you must not show Zheng Jue.
Otherwise, it will not end well,” Zhou Chengan’s expression was meaningful.
