BOSS Transmigrates as a Little Cutie - 21
Qing Yun’s two long legs wrapped around Zou Chen’s waist. He reached out and tugged at Zou Chen’s collar, leaning in close to say something.
What these two were saying, Zou Qiyao didn’t know, at this moment he even forgot who he was and where he was, he mumbled out, “Brother…”
Zou Chen’s eyes turned dark because of his words.
Qing Yun’s eyes were even colder, he could tolerate Zou Qiyao bouncing around like a clown, but couldn’t endure Zou Qiyao’s unobstructed entry into the space he was living in.
Zou Qiyao repeatedly provoked him but Qing Yun did not make a move. He believed that Zou Chen would deal with it himself, but now it seems that he thought too much.
Keenly aware of the change in Qing Yun’s mood, Zou Chen panicked and the spatula fell to the floor with a bang.
“Chengnuo you listen to my explanation… “ Zou Chen hurriedly wrapped his hands around Qing Yun.
Qing Yun chuckled lightly as he reached out to wrap his arms around Zou Chen’s neck. His jade-like palms even stroking Zou Chen’s stubbled chin, but his eyes were growing increasingly obscure.
Zou Chen’s heart sank a little bit, and it was hard to separate a single bit of attention on the dumbfounded Zou Qiyao.
“Oh, I’ve met him twice, so he’s Zou’s most favored brother.” Qing Yun cupped Zou Chen’s chin and whispered.
“Very well, then, spend the rest of your life with your baby brother.” The tone of his voice turned sharp. Qing Yun pulled Zou Chen’s arm away from him and took the jacket on the couch to go out.
“Baby, don’t… “ Zou Chen quickly tugged on Qing Yun’s arm but was snapped away by Qing Yun.
Zou Qiyao watched Zou Chen chase Qing Yun out in a low voice and didn’t even reward himself with a glance. Only now did the alarm begin to go off in his heart. Trembling subconsciously, he searched for a place to hide.
But his body didn’t dare to move.
Zou Qiyao’s mind flashed back to the scene at a certain Zou family banquet. Just because of one sentence, Zou Chen took his grandfather’s cane and ruthlessly broke his second uncle’s leg.
Blood burst onto the floor, and his second uncle’s howls of anguish shook the heavens.
However, not a single person in the Zou family dared to move, not a single person dared to speak up for him. The old man of the Zou family watched his favored young son climbing on the ground like an animal, but he could only drink tea.
For fear of disturbing Zou Chen’s “elegant mood”, the banquet’s crowd even had to smile and step on the sticky bloodstains on the floor, dancing and talking along with his uncle’s howls.
That day at the banquet, the smell of blood overtook the smell of alcohol and burrowed deep into the hearts of all present, clinging to their nerve endings. With a little stimulation, the scene was vividly remembered.
But at that time, Zou Chen was indifferent. Zou Qiyao had never seen Zou Chen lose his composure like this.
Thinking about his own dirty thoughts, Zou Qiyao knew that he was finished.
By the time Assistant Gu arrived, the sound of wailing could no longer be heard in the villa.
As soon as he entered, he saw Zou Qiyao curled up on the floor, his face covered in blood, and slurred his words, “Sister-in-law will come back, sister-in-law will come back…”
Zou Chen, on the other hand, sat on the sofa folding the apron. He folded it to a tiny side, even the folds were meticulously smoothed out. He obviously treasured this apron greatly.
This must be something from Young Master Xiao, thought Assistant Gu.
He had been following Zou Chen, naturally, he knew about Zou Chen’s pursuit of Xiao Chengnuo over the years. Miraculously, ever since he met Xiao Chengnuo, Zou Chen hadn’t lost his temper for a long time. His tyranny that filled his heart seemed to have found an outlet, all of it turning into passion and tenderness surging towards Xiao Chengnuo.
Before he met Xiao Chengnuo, Zou Chen was a wild beast, and no one knew when he would go crazy. After meeting Xiao Chengnuo, the beast seems to have suddenly recognized his master. He seemed a lot more docile, but he also had the sense to choose and devour people.
Assistant Gu presented the information in his hands with downcast eyes while saying, “I called Ruixin’s domestic branch to ask about it, but Mr. Xiao is not there. However, this place is very close to the Xiao family, and I’m afraid that Mr. Xiao has gone home.”
What about Mr. Xiao and Ruixin? Zou Qiyao listened vaguely, his brain was a little bit overwhelmed. The company’s name is Ruixin, and no one is unaware of Ruixin’s reputation. Even if they can’t name the company, when it comes to the world-shattering anti-cancer drug, they will understand. But who is Mr. Xiao? Xiao Chengnuo?
Zou Qiyao suddenly became stirred up, remembering the check that Xiao Chengnuo had thrown away like garbage. An unbelievable thought slowly took shape, Xiao Chengnuo and Ruixin Pharmaceutical…
No wonder Xiao Chengnuo was able to throw away a five million cheque so unconcernedly. No wonder Zou Chen, who is unconcerned about others, regarded Xiao Chengnuo in a different light. Zou Qiyao suddenly understood everything. Xiao Chengzhe’s provocative words flashed in his mind and his heart suddenly surged with anger against Xiao Chengzhe.
“Brother, it’s all Xiao Chengzhe! He was the one who wanted to harm sister-in-law…” explained Zou Qiyao as he crawled towards Zou Chen, but he was kicked by Zou Chen, his head knocking against the marble wall with a dull sound.
Zou Chen received the information, looked through it twice, and then his dark gaze directed towards Zou Qiyao, “Twice, plus this time, a total of three times.”
Zou Qiyao couldn’t restrain himself from shaking twice, this was the number of times he had messed with Xiao Chengnuo.
“Chengnuo doesn’t want to see me.” Zou Chen’s voice was gloomy, another harsh frown creased between his eyebrows. He was now feeling both frustrated and panicked. He almost lost his mind when he thought of Qing Yun’s resolute back.
It seemed that he had once just watched Qing Yun disappear from his world and reach a place he could never reach.
Qing Yun wouldn’t let him get involved in the Xiao family’s affairs, but how could Zou Chen not care. He only withdrew the people who were following Qing Yun, but he knew everything that happened within the Xiao Family. Xiao Chengzhe had been unable to find Qing Yun for three years, and it was because of Zou Chen.
But he never expected that it would be the Zou family that would end up upsetting Qing Yun.
He doesn’t blame Qing Yun for being angry with him.
Zou Chen lit a cigar, smoke instantly lingered up, but couldn’t conceal his cold gaze: “The people who followed Xiao Chengzhe’s side were replaced, and the ones who didn’t stand up to him were sent to D country.”
He had long forgotten the reason for keeping the bastard in the Zou family in the first place. He was merely a pendulum left in the Zou family, letting him stay there when he wasn’t an eyesore and replacing him whenever he didn’t like what he saw.
But some people seem to be mistaken. Otherwise, it would be impossible for Zou Qiyao to swagger into the current villa.
“It was this subordinate’s fault for not explaining their duties clearly to them, today, the subordinate will arrange to send Second Young Master out of the country.” Assistant Gu had a bit of a headache, the people who followed Xiao Chengzhe’s side were arranged by him.
Zou Chen, however, interrupted him, “When has the Zou family ever had a second young master?”
“Yes…” Assistant Gu was shocked, knowing that Zou Qiyao had been sentenced to death by a single sentence from Zou Chen.
After all, Zou Qiyao is not like Xiao Chengnuo, who left the Xiao family to build up Ruixin Pharmaceuticals in minutes. Qiyao would be nothing if he left the Zou family.
And D country… Assistant Gu silently felt some sympathy in his heart.
Qing Yun went back to the Xiao family since he had just met Mother Xiao shortly after coming out of Zou Chen’s villa.
Being so close to home, Mother Xiao would naturally not let him leave.
When Qing Yun returned to the Xiao family, Father Xiao was watering the flowers in the courtyard. Now that he was getting older, he was slowly becoming too weak to handle the business and left most things to Xiao Chengzhe to take care of. For his other son, Xiao Chengnuo, at first, he was angry at the thought of him, but his anger raised some self-doubt.
After all, Xiao Chengnuo’s words before he left brought him quite a bit of impact. As he grew older, these words slowly took root in his heart. In the middle of the night, every word that was spoken clearly flashed in his ears.
The boy was right, he had never given him any good impressions since he was a child.
When he saw Xiao Chengnuo at first glance, Father Xiao was startled. Before he spoke, Mother Xiao looked at him and snorted: “Can’t I bring my son home?”
Father Xiao opened his mouth but eventually didn’t say anything. He proceeded to water the flowers in silence, but the corner of his eyes was clearly checking on Xiao Chengnuo.
As soon as he entered the living room, Qing Yun saw Xiao Chengzhe coming down the stairs.
Xiao Chengzhe was stunned when he saw Xiao Chengnuo, and then he looked at Father Xiao who was watering the flowers in the courtyard with a slight shock. It wasn’t that he was shocked that Xiao Chengnuo was back, after all, the last time he saw Mother Xiao and Xiao Chengnuo at the mall, he had known that Mother Xiao would bring Xiao Chengnuo home.
What surprised him was that Father Xiao had just silently let Xiao Chengnuo in? What do you mean, does it mean that what happened three years ago has been uncovered because of Xiao Chengnuo’s three years of disappearing?
Xiao Chengzhe felt something bad in his heart as if something had long been beyond his control, and it was only then that he realized it.
He mentally comforted himself that it would be fine, the cooperation with the Zou Consortium would not be a problem. Father Xiao would no longer let Xiao Chengnuo be his successor, and Xiao would be his.
Besides, even if something went wrong, it wasn’t like he didn’t have other plans in the past three years.
Tonight, the four members of the Xiao family experienced an extremely awkward dinner atmosphere. Mother Xiao looked happy as she gave Xiao Chengnuo food, and mother and son ate happily together. Father Xiao ate in silence, but his attention was always on Xiao Chengnuo’s side, so Xiao Chengzhe became all uncomfortable.
Truthfully, although he was adopted by the Xiao family, he had never been a fish out of water in the Xiao family. Otherwise, he couldn’t have risen to the idea of taking the Xiao family as his own. It had always been Xiao Chengnuo, who had been trembling at the table instead.
But now, it seemed as if the whole situation had been switched around.
Just then, the housekeeper who hurriedly came in from outside the door defused the awkwardness at the dinner table.
The housekeeper’s face was agitated and panicked, “Mr. Zou’s here, saying that he’s coming to visit Mr. Xiao!”
