“Uncle, you don't look well either . Make sure you have enough rest,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
w.a.n.g Yao could tell this third uncle was not well either . He had been working too hard .
“Okay,” said the middle-aged man with a smile .
w.a.n.g Yao stayed for a short while to chat with his third uncle before he left .
“By the way, please don't let anyone else know about me treating your wife,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“Okay, I see,” said the middle-aged man with surprise . He nodded to w.a.n.g Yao as he left .
“Yao turned out to be a fine young man . He remembers we were nice to him when he was little,” said his wife .
“Yes, but don't know where he's got all those skills,” said the middle-aged man .
“Who knows? But it seems that he doesn't want other people to know about it . Make sure you don't tell anyone,” said his wife .
“I won't,” said the middle-aged man .
w.a.n.g Yao left this third uncle's house for Nanshan Hill . He received a text message from Tong Wei on his way . Tong Wei told him that she would fly to Shanghai the next day, then fly to Dao City . She wouldn't arrive at Dao City until late at night, so she asked w.a.n.g Yao not to go to Dao City too early .
“I'll pick you up at the airport,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
w.a.n.g Yao didn't mind going to Dao City late at night . He could stay there overnight .
Wait! It suddenly occurred to w.a.n.g Yao that he needed to contact w.a.n.g Mingbao .
He rang w.a.n.g Mingbao right away to double-check if w.a.n.g Mingbao was still at Lianshan . Then he drove to Lianshan town center after letting his parents know .
He wanted to talk to w.a.n.g Mingbao about Shen Qingqing . He didn't think Shen Qingqing was a decent girl .
When w.a.n.g Yao had arrived at w.a.n.g Mingbao's store, he heard a girl's giggle coming from w.a.n.g Mingbao's office .
He knocked on the door before entering the office .
w.a.n.g Mingbao was in the office . He had a wide smile on his face . A girl stood next to him . She was also in good spirits . It was Shen Qingqing .
“h.e.l.lo, Yao,” said Shen Qingqing with a smile .
“h.e.l.lo,” said w.a.n.g Yao with a smile .
“Please come and sit down,” said Shen Qingqing .
She went to make w.a.n.g Yao a cup of tea and prepared some fruits for w.a.n.g Yao . She was quite efficient .
“What brings you here?” asked w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“I need to speak to you,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“About what?” asked w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“Well…” w.a.n.g Yao hesitated .
“Qingqing, can you go downstairs for a bit and help out there? I need to speak to Yao,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao to his girlfriend .
“Okay,” said Shen Qingqing without hesitation . She left the room and went downstairs .
“You two seem to get along quite well,” said w.a.n.g Yao with a smile .
“Haha, it's not bad . I think she's quite nice,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“She doesn't work?” asked w.a.n.g Yao .
“Oh, she works for an insurance company . Her hours are flexible,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“Insurance company?” asked w.a.n.g Yao .
“Yes, she used to work in Ji City and came back two months ago . I met her during a party,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao . “Hey, don't talk about her, tell me what brings you here?”
“I'm here actually to talk about her,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“What?!” asked w.a.n.g Mingbao with surprise . “What's wrong with her?”
“How much do you know her? I mean her past,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“I've asked her about her past . She had a boyfriend before . She broke up with him because they didn't get along . Why?” w.a.n.g Mingbao didn't expect w.a.n.g Yao to have come all the way here just to talk about his girlfriend .
“I see…” w.a.n.g Yao hesitated . He didn't know how to put it in a nice way .
“Hey, you are my best friend, just say what's on your mind,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“I checked her over the first time I met her . I found she had inadequate Qi and vitality . I believe her body was severely damaged during the last three months,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“Severe damage? I don't know about it,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao after thinking for a while . “I've known her for nearly two months . I haven't detected any health issues . ”
“I think it had happened before you knew her,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“So tell me, what do you mean by inadequate Qi and vitality?” w.a.n.g Mingbao could only vaguely tell what w.a.n.g Yao meant .
“To put it simply, I believe she had an abortion,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“What?!” w.a.n.g Mingbao stood up from the chair .
“Are you sure?!” asked w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“I'm not 100% sure, but almost certain about it,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
w.a.n.g Yao would be sure if he got a chance to have a close look at Shen Qingqing and check her pulse . However, he was almost certain that she had an abortion .
w.a.n.g Mingbao kept silent while sitting back in the chair . He looked a bit upset . He really liked Shen Qingqing, but he trusted his best friend more .
“If you know someone in Ji City, get her checked . After all, you want to spend the rest of your life with her,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“Okay, I see . Thank you,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“Try not to look upset,” said w.a.n.g Yao calmly . “What if I am wrong?”
“Okay . ” w.a.n.g Mingbao tried his best to squeeze a smile out .
“You look worse than if you cried,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“Try to find an excuse if she notices any change,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“What excuse?” asked w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“Just say I'm here to borrow money . Tell her I want to borrow one million from you,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“Look at you! I didn't expect you, such a spiritual person, would be so good at lying,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao with a smile .
“Some lies are necessary,” said w.a.n.g Yao . “Well, I have to go now . ”
“Don't go, stay for dinner,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“I've got some errands to run later,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
w.a.n.g Mingbao walked w.a.n.g Yao downstairs .
“Are you leaving?” Shen Qingqing came to say goodbye .
“Yes, I'll see you later,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
He noticed that Shen Qingqing was wearing a platinum necklace . The last time w.a.n.g Yao met her she was wearing a gold necklace . It seemed that w.a.n.g Mingbao had spent quite a lot of money on her .
“Drive safe,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“Okay, see you later,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
He drove off .
“What did you two talk about? So secretive!” asked Shen Qingqing immediately after w.a.n.g Yao had left .
Thinking about what w.a.n.g Yao had said and what had happened between him and Shen Qingqing, w.a.n.g Mingbao suddenly felt Shen Qingqing became his girlfriend because of money and his family background . Therefore, w.a.n.g Mingbao started to look unhappy .
“What happened?” A very observant Shen Qingqing immediately noticed the change on w.a.n.g Mingbao's face .
“Nothing, let's go upstairs,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“Okay,” said Shen Qingqing .
The two of them entered the office . Shen Qingqing put away the tea cups .
“You don't look well, what happened?” asked Shen Qingqing .
“He came to borrow money,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“How much does he want to borrow?” asked Shen Qingqing .
“One million,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
“What!” Shen Qingqing was shocked . “One million is really a lot of money!”
“Exactly,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
No wonder w.a.n.g Mingbao looked unhappy, she thought . He wouldn't be happy even though w.a.n.g Yao was his brother . After all, not everyone was as rich as Ma Yun and w.a.n.g Sicong . For them, money was just a number .
“Are you gonna lend him the money?' asked Shen Qingqing .
“I need to think about it,” said w.a.n.g Mingbao .
Shen Qingqing wanted to make w.a.n.g Mingbao happy, so she stayed with him for a while . She tried to kiss and hug w.a.n.g Mingbao . However, w.a.n.g Mingbao kept thinking of what w.a.n.g Yao had actually said . The more Shen Qingqing was close to him, the more awkward he felt and the more upset he looked .
People at w.a.n.g Mingbao's age often were not good at hiding their emotions . They had everything written on their faces .
It was suddenly a bit awkward . Fortunately, Shen Qingqing received a call from her company asking her to go back to work .
Well, I need to get someone to check on her, decided w.a.n.g Mingbao .
The next day, he went to Ji City in the name of shopping for decoration materials . He asked a friend there to ask around about Shen Qingqing in her previous workplace .
Meanwhile, w.a.n.g Yao was at home .
“What? Tong Wei's coming back?” asked Zhang Xiuying .
“Yes, I'll pick her up in Dao City, so I'll probably stay there tonight,” said w.a.n.g Yao .
“Okay, not a problem . ” Zhang Xiuying was very happy for w.a.n.g Yao to be with Tong Wei . “Stay at Dao City for a few days . Don't rush to come home . ”
“Okay,” said w.a.n.g Yao with a smile .
He then drove out of the village .
Ticktock! Ticktock! The contractors doing the road were ready to get back to work .
Aye! The boss will probably lose money, thought w.a.n.g Yao . At the same time, he started to worry about the quality of the roadwork .
Since the boss was going to lose money, he would try his best to reduce cost . Therefore, the quality of roadwork wouldn't be guaranteed .
w.a.n.g Yao was driving very fast on the road . Thousands of miles away, a plane landed in Shanghai from overseas .
A slim and pretty lady wearing sungla.s.ses got off the plane .
“Hey, Wei, slow down, wait for me . ” A handsome young man in his 20's was following the pretty lady .
“Why do you always follow me?” The pretty lady sounded impatient .
“Aren't you going to Dao City? I'm going to Dao City, too,” said the young man with a smile . “We have the same destination . ”
“Why are you going to Dao City?” asked Tong Wei .
“I will go wherever you go,” said the young man .
“You…” This was the first time Tong Wei came across such an annoying person . “I already have a boyfriend . ”
“Boyfriend? Never mind him . As long as you are not married, I still have a chance to be with you . Even if you got married, you still could get divorced,” said the young man .
Tong Wei was shocked by the young man's words . She was speechless . The young man was really clingy .
“If you continue to follow me, I will call the police,” said Tong Wei .
“Okay, I'll keep distance from you . ” The young man was still smiling . He kept a meter away from Tong Wei .
He decided he would go wherever Tong Wei went .
