Chapter 134 – Love Rival? Friend?
“Release Director Yang!”
The two bodyguards beside Yang Zhen immediately walked up to him. Ye Zichen squinted his eyes as he looked at the two of them.
Ye Zichen put up his hands and backed away.
Yang Zhen rotated his wrist a bit, then said to the bodyguards beside him, “Stay here and protect young mistress.”
With that, he walked to Ye Zichen’s side, then left after looking at him meaningfully.
Yang Yushi, who was on the bed, bit her lips. Ye Zichen smiled and slightly nodded towards her before walking out of the ward.
“Director Yang’s method of educating his children is so common,” Ye Zichen couldn’t help but twitched his mouth playfully the moment he left the ward. “The method of beating children is already really low.”
“My manner of educating my daughter doesn’t require you to point fingers.”
Yang Zhen maintained his emotionless expression. If he wasn’t Ye Zichen’s elder, Ye Zichen really wanted to slap him a few times.
Why the heck did he have put on that face? It’s not like I owed him money.
Ye Zichen shrugged with a smile, then said playfully, “What did you call me here for, did you want me to thank you for saving your daughter’s life? That’s good, thank me!”
Ye Zichen wrapped his arms in front of him and acted like he was waiting for thanks.
However, the other person handed him a cheque.
Ye Zichen couldn’t help but laugh when he saw the cheque.
“You’re still so full of yourself,” Ye Zichen scrunched up the cheque into a ball and threw it onto the floor, then pointed at Yang Zhen with a laugh. “Don’t think that money is all powerful. The moment you took out this cheque. I really feel that you are helpless.”
Yang Zhen’s face remained dark, while Ye Zichen spoke up once more, “Do you know what Yang Yushi wants? Do you think just economical satisfaction would make her happy? My god, you will make me feel like you are the slave of money. I can already smell the stench of money coming from you from afar.”
“Did you say enough yet!”
“Mhmm, more or less,” Ye Zichen nodded. “One last thing, I feel sorry for Yang Yushi to have a father like you.”
Ye Zichen waved towards Yang Zhen, then left from the hospital.
Zu Siliang, who stood on the side, walked over. Yang Zhen squinted his eyes and shook his head when he looked at the direction Ye Zichen left from, “Go and accompany Yushi. I still have contracts to talk about.”
“No need, Uncle Yang. I think it’s better if I send him out,” Zu Siliang nodded respectfully towards Yang Zhen. Then, before he left, he suddenly stopped once again, “Uncle Yang, I think you should accompany Yushi more. She’s actually really lonely.”
“Why aren’t you staying in the hospital with your cheap dad-in-law and instead came to find me, the ex-love rival?”
Ye ZIchen sat within a coffee shop near the hospital with a latte that he haven’t touched in front of him.
Actually, he didn’t like stuff like coffee much. He must rather buy some sort of cold drink with the money.
A cold drink is good.
“I didn’t think that you’re a rather humorous person,” Zu Siliang took a sip of his coffee and said.
Ye Zichen rolled his eyes, “What did you find me for? Although I’m not as busy as you guys, the owners of large corporations, but I have quite a bit of stuff to do each day.”
“I know you’re busy.”
Zu Siliang would always carry a warm smile, no matter the situation. It was as if he was just a purely good guy from birth and didn’t know how to get angry.
“I came to find you to become friends.”
Ye Zichen looked at him like he was an insane person and said, “Are you alright? You shouldn’t not be able to tell what’s going on between Yang Yushi and I, right? You want to become friends with me?”
“So what? That shouldn’t affect us getting to know each other,” Zu Siliang smiled, then his expression turned sad. “Actually, Yang Yushi has never accepted me in her heart. I had suspected that there was someone who left a deep impression of her in her heart, until you appeared yesterday… Although you appear very common at first and act rather impulsively, anyone would be able to feel that your care for Yushi is no less than anyone’s, you care about her even more than anyone.”
“Even more than you?” Ye Zichen raised his eyebrows and smiled.
“More than me,” Zu Siliang answered without any hesitation.
Ye Zichen was shocked when he heard Zu Siliang’s reply.
“There’s no need to look at me like that, I really do like Yushi, but more of it is because of the lack of choice due to the family’s alliance through the marriage.”
Ye Zichen suddenly smiled after staying silent for a while, “I suddenly feel that people like you are rather pitiful. You all became the sacrifices of your family.”
“Kind of,” Zu Siliang laughed softly.
“Alright, that’s it. We’ve pretty much chatted about everything. My time is limited, so I’ll be leaving first,” Ye Zichen nodded towards Zu Siliang with a smile, then stood up from the chair and prepared to leave.
“Then we are…”
Ye Zichen turned back and raised his eyebrow at Zu Siliang, before showing him his back and leaving the coffee shop.
When Ye Zichen disappeared from the coffee shop, Zu Siliang said slowly, “Love rival? That’s rather interesting.”
“I feel like the guy is pretty good,” Liu Qing floated out and pouted, while Ye Zichen nodded in agreement.
Thinking back on Zu Siliang’s performance these two days. It seems like he did not have the cockiness of a rich second generation and was rather interesting.
“He is pretty nice, but he’s rather pitiful.”
“Why?” Liu Qing blinked with her beautiful eyes. “I feel like people who were born with this sort of cheat are all very lucky.”
“Is that so?” Ye Zichen smiled meaningfully and shrugged. “Actually, they are all just sacrifices of their family, and were born for the benefits of their family to be paired with another person that was born for another family’s benefits. These sorts of people don’t live very happy lives.”
“Oh, I just don’t understand. I don’t even have someone I like…” Liu Qing frowned.
Ye Zichen raised his hand and rubbed her hair, “Don’t be like this, big bro already has a way to revive you. It’s only a matter of time now.”
“I…” Liu Qing suddenly opened her mouth as if wanting to say something, but she moved her mouth a bit, and was unable to utter a word.
Ye Zichen looked at her, then said, “What is it?”
“Nothing!” Liu Qing shook her head with a laugh and floated behind her. Emotions flowed through her heart as she looked at his back.
She wanted to be revived and return to her parents’ side.
But she wanted to be by his side even more…
What’s more, even if she was revived, could she even go back?
Ye ZIchen didn’t think about that, he merely concentrated on reviving Liu Qing.
This was his promise to her. He must achieve it.
However, where was he supposed to find the stuff for reviving? He only had the dragon eye with a thousand year of cultivation. He didn’t wasn’t even close to getting the rest.
At this moment, the phone in his pocket suddenly rang with notification sounds.
Ye Zichen sat on the flowerbed on the side of the road and took out his phone.
Taibai Jinxing invited Iron Crutch Li, Zhongli Quan, Elder Zhang Guo, Lan Caihe, Immortal Lady He, Lv Dongbin, Han Xiangzi and Cao Guojiu into the chat group.
