From this dinner banquet, Xie Zhongxing had the chance to witness the dark turbulence hidden under the smiling facades of each of these guests.

He could also feel the scornful and contemptuous looks directed at him.Although Xie Zhongxing appeared unaffected, he was somewhat tired.Qin Zhongyue was probably also worried about him feeling uncomfortable, so he stayed by his side the entire time.
Even when toasting, he would drag him along, never letting him be alone.Xie Zhongxing was very appreciative of this thoughtfulness of his, but he still felt a difficult to describe emotion inside.It was probably something along the lines of feeling at loss and fear of having a sun by his side that he could touch but cannot possess.Here, Xie Zhongxing also met Qin Zhongyue’s friends.They were all rather good-looking, especially Li Jun who was particularly fine-looking and tall.
He looked like those handsome young men often depicted in comic books.
The others were also not that much inferior in appearance.Li Jun toasted them and said a few congratulatory words at which Qin Zhongyue thanked in return.
Qin Zhongyue however remained polite and didn’t socialise too much with Li Jun and the others.Li Jun could sense his reservedness.
He glanced at Xie Zhongxing next to him and took the initiative to ask, “Why aren’t you introducing the person next to you?”Qin Zhongyue was still in a tense and cautious state.
Hearing Li Jun’s words, he introduced a little bluntly, “This is Xie Zhongxing.
This is Li Jun, Tang Mingxin, Mo Gui….”After his introduction, he added, “There are too many of them, you don’t need to remember their names —— Are you tired? I’ll take you back to the room to rest.”After saying that, he protectively guided Xie Zhongxing away from Li Jun and co.Tang Mingxin was dumbfounded, “What is this? Why is he so cautious?”Li Jun, “Forget it.
Let’s sit over there.”Xie Zhongxing was brought to a suite upstairs.
He asked lightly, “Why aren’t you chatting with them?”Qin Zhongyue said in a small voice, “I know you don’t like them so I’m not going to hang out with them.”Xie Zhongxing, “When did I say that I don’t like them?”Qin Zhongyue scratched his head, “Alright.
I just feel that you’re more important.”He then said solemnly, “I will listen to whatever you say.
I won't waste money on them anymore, I’ll be frugal!!”Xie Zhongxing looked at him with surprise, “I’ve never said anything about you not spending money on your friends.”Qin Zhongyue, “It’s okay, I understand.
You were trying to tell me not to be their personal ATM.
I realised the problem when you mentioned it last time and I now plan to rethink about these friends of mine and stop giving them money one-sidedly.”


Xie Zhongxing who heard this softened his tone, “I thought you forgot what I said that day.
I didn’t realise you really took it to heart.”Qin Zhongyue who heard this didn’t immediately feel wronged.
His first reaction was to question himself.
Was he really that unreliable?”Okay fine, he was indeed unreliable.Qin Zhongyue said, “If I don’t change now, Tang Mingxin would borrow more money from me in the future to start a business and then he would lose everything and not pay me back a single yuan.”Xie Zhongxing, “?”Qin Zhongyue, “If I stop spending money recklessly, it can be considered as money being saved.
The amount that is saved is pretty much money I earned myself, am I right?”Xie Zhongxing, “……..”Xie Zhongxing, “….You’re amazing.”The more Qin Zhongyue thought about it, the more he felt that it made complete sense.
Tang Mingxin had asked him to invest in various things but basically none of them profited.
He didn’t care much about it before; he gets eight million a month to spend and has more than enough to use a part of it to invest on something.
If he manages to make some money, it would be considered as him having good insight and investing in the right things.But this kind of behaviour was probably stupid behaviour in Xie Zhongxing’s eyes.They have had some conflicts in his previous life because of these matters too.
At that time, compared to his cold and aloof wife, he liked hanging out with his friends more.What was wrong with him back then?! How could they be more important than Xie Zhongxing?!Even if there are one hundred Mo Yu’s, how could that be comparable to one Xie Zhongxing?!But what was Xie Zhongxing’s impression of him right now?Although he is good looking, has a nice body and a big dick, if it were only these traits, wouldn’t that make him the same as a duck? (KKnotes: Male prostitute)The more Qin Zhongyue thought about it, the more frustrated he felt.
He immediately said, “Wait here.”He took out his phone and called Mo Yu with a particularly serious look on his face.Very quickly, Mo Yu answered, “Hello? Why are you calling me? You’re calling because you want me to attend your banquet? Then you have to apologise first.
Although the cruise ship has already been bought, you can still change your mind, the five hundred thousand yuan deposit will just be taken away.
I can afford that.”Qin Zhongyue said solemnly, “Mo Yu, we’re over.”


Mo Yu fell silent.
A while later, he spoke up, “What is this? Are you serious?”Qin Zhongyue said, “I don’t need friends who treat me as an ATM.
From now on, we’re strangers!”After saying that, without waiting for Mo Yu to say anything in response, he ended the call and even proceeded to block his number.
Once he was done, he looked at Xie Zhongxing and said , “His father also relies on our company to make a living.
I’ll tell my dad later to stop funding him.”Xie Zhongxing spoke up after a while, “You don’t have to go to that extent.”Qin Zhongyue, “I’m trying to show you my determination.
I’ll do whatever you say.”Xie Zhongxing, “……..”Xie Zhongxing closed his eyes and laid on the table.Qin Zhongyue looked at him and asked carefully, “What’s wrong?”Xie Zhongxing sat up and picked up a bottle of red wine from the table, “Where’s the bottle opener?”Qin Zhongyue found one next to a bouquet.
He skilfully tapped the bottle and twisted the cork out, “This wine is a 2001 Chateau Margaux.
The taste of it is okay but when we get the chance, you should try the 1995 one….”As soon as he spoke, he immediately remembered Qin Xiangqian’s words and stopped speaking.Xie Zhongxing glanced at him, “Why did you stop?”Qin Zhongyue laughed awkwardly, “I don’t think I have a 1995 one at home.”He had always been rather careless and would say whatever he thought but after hearing what Qin Xiangqian had to say last time, he felt that he should be more careful.Qin Zhongyue became more careful with his words.
Xie Zhongxing however didn’t notice anything.
Perhaps Qin Zhongyue naturally exuded an air of superiority but Xie Zhongxing had never thought that he was looking down on him.
He could only feel Qin Zhongyue’s sincere desire to give him all the best things he had.Just like the small detail of cutting the tags from his clothes, Xie Zhongxing remembered it deeply.He was however troubled by what he could give Qin Zhongyue in return.Xie Zhongxing watched Qin Zhongyue pour the wine in his glass.
The red liquid falling into the glass looked like a blood-red flower in full bloom.He reached for the glass of red wine on the table and started drinking.


Qin Zhongyue said, “Don’t drink too much.
This has been left here for almost ten years.
It may taste nice but the aftereffects are strong.
If you drink too much, you’ll get a headache again.”Xie Zhongxing glanced at him and helped him pour some too, “You should drink too.”Qin Zhongyue, “No, I can’t drink.
If you get drunk, I will need to carry you downstairs.”Xie Zhongxing was silent for a moment before saying, “Then forget it.”He finished an entire glass of red wine.
His stomach had warmed up but his mind was still very clear, “Let’s go down.
We shouldn’t let them wait too long.”Qin Zhongyue scrutinised him carefully, “Are you feeling it now? You drunk?”Xie Zhongxing, “I’m not drunk.”He revealed a bright smile.
Because his eyes carried certain emotions, it looked particularly charming, “Do I look like I’m drunk?”Qin Zhongyue took in his beautiful face with flushed cheeks and subconsciously swallowed, “You do.
You are not good with alcohol in the first place.”Xie Zhongxing’s eyes stirred, “You know this too.
How did you know that I’m not good with alcohol?”Qin Zhongyue answered without any hesitation, “You don’t look like the kind of person who can drink well.”Xie Zhongxing stood up, “Let’s go.”Because he was dizzy, he was a little unsteady and almost fell.
Qin Zhongyue hurriedly stood up and pulled him into his arms to support him.
He quietly spoke next to his ear, “You are definitely drunk.
Forget it, let’s go back.”Xie Zhongxing didn’t speak.
He had done this deliberately.
He wanted to be selfish for once.Qin Zhongyue supported him downstairs with the intention to take him home.
When Qin Xiangqian saw this, he even reminded him to get the aunty to make some sobering soup for him.Qin Zhongyue made a sound of understanding and hurried over to the elevator.
Just as he was about to get in, Li Jun called out to him, “You called Mo Yu just now saying that you want to end your friendship with him?”“He’s getting you to speak for him?” Qin Zhongyue asked back.Li Jun said, “He asked but I didn’t agree.
Was this something you planned to do or was it on an impulse?”Qin Zhongyue replied, “I want to be a charismatic man.”Li Jun was stunned.
He subconsciously looked towards Xie Zhongxing in his arms, “Is it because of him?”He was very clever.
With just those words alone, he was able to notice that something was off.


A man only pays attention to these things when they have someone they care about.Li Jun couldn’t believe it, “I thought you were just playing around but you’re actually for real? My ancestor, are you feeling okay? It’s fine to treat him as a friend but you shouldn’t take this too seriously.”Qin Zhongyue subconsciously covered Xie Zhongxing’s ears, “What nonsense are you talking about? Hurry and go.
If you continue speaking nonsense, I’ll also stop talking to you.”After saying that, he pressed the button for the elevator several more times before it ‘dinged’ and the door opened.
Qin Zhongyue hurriedly supported Xie Zhongxing in.But there was someone else in the elevator.
Qin Zhongque almost knocked into him.Qin Zhongyue looked back and was shocked, “Fuck, Shi Yanyu, why is it you?!”Shi Yanyu’s cold and arrogant face immediately revealed a smile.
His tone was light, “Why is the main star for tonight leaving so early?”Qin Zhongyue, “It’s none of your business.
Don’t talk to me.”After saying that, he buried Xie Zhongxing’s head further into his chest, not letting Shi Yanyu see him.Xie Zhongxing felt suffocated.
He pushed at his chest, “Hot.”Qin Zhongyue loosened his grip a little and turned around.
He wanted to keep Xie Zhongxing away from Shi Yanyu.Shi Yanyu who witnessed this scene found it very amusing.Seemingly feeling something, Xie Zhongxing frowned slightly.After settling into Qin Zhongyue’s care, Xie Zhongxing dug through his pocket and pulled out a business card.Qin Zhongyue who peeked at it immediately exploded, “What is he trying to do?! Showing off that he’s the general manager at just the age of 20?”Xie Zhongxing, “?”That is what you’re angry about?Qin Zhongyue continued, “And the business card is so tacky.
Why didn’t he just make it fully gold plated instead?! Don’t worry.
As soon as I’m not busy with my classes, I will also establish a company and be a CEO.
That’ll be an even more senior position than this general manager of his!”Xie Zhongxing remained expressionless, “Oh.”
