He Shiwen acted very quickly. After signing the contract, he called Pei Qingyuan to make an appointment for the health certificate examination package at the nearby hospital. He also insisted on giving the medical examination fee in advance before pushing Pei Qingyuan out the door, telling him to go to the hospital quickly out of fear that he would refuse.
“Go home and rest after the physical examination. Come to work tomorrow and Sunday. Once the certificate comes out, just give me a copy and keep a file.”
He Shiwen finished giving the instructions and stood in the store to wave to him. “See you tomorrow, Xiao Pei.”
Then he turned around and went to greet the customers.
The business in the store was good. At present, there were only two people working there, the pastry chef and the owner He Shiwen. They were usually busy and were even busier during the holidays, so he thought of recruiting a part-time weekend worker. The worker could give the pastry chef a hand, work at the cashier and greet customers.
This job wasn’t tiring and the hourly salary was very reasonable. He Shiwen could’ve recruited people a long time ago, but he noticed the high school student often standing in a daze outside the store the other night. Then for some reason, he rejected all those who applied.
Fortunately, this high school student really came.
Pei Qingyuan stood outside the door. In addition to the cash that He Shiwen had given him, there was also a bag of freshly baked pastries. The fragrance was sweet, and Ji Tong couldn’t help gulp in the consciousness space.
“Uncle He is such a good person.” Ji Tong looked at this small but warm store with emotion. “His daughter must be cute as well.”
The sign in front of the store read ‘Xingyue Bakery’ in crooked characters. According to He Shiwen’s enthusiastic introduction just now, this was the name given to the store by his daughter, who was in kindergarten.
“Yes.” Pei Qingyuan shook the bag in his hand and asked, “Do you want to eat bread?”
It was best to have an empty stomach before the physical examination, so Pei Qingyuan planned to eat lunch after the physical examination. Then he considered the fact that his system would be hungry, so he was ready to find a place for Ji Tong to come out and eat first.
Unexpectedly, Ji Tong quietly refused.
“I won’t eat. Host, you should go to the hospital. Go early and return early.”
Pei Qingyuan was a bit surprised. He thought it was because Ji Tong was used to eating the fried chicken, crayfish and hot pot contributed by the basketball team at night and wanted to save time to eat these more hearty foods.
He didn’t ask much and quickly got on his bicycle to head to the hospital.
Pei Qingyuan parked the bicycle, walked through the shade of trees and was about to enter the hospital alone, when he felt the corner of his clothes being grabbed.
He looked back in astonishment and saw a kid in short-sleeved overalls looking at him with shining eyes.
“Ruan Ruan, I will accompany you to the hospital.”
How could his underage host go to the hospital alone, even if it was for a medical examination?
This was Ji Tong’s professional ethics as a professional system.
For this reason, he reluctantly sacrificed the rest of the day’s human eating time.
Pei Qingyuan stared blankly at this boy who was becoming increasingly familiar to him. His mind didn’t return until Ji Tong tugged at the corner of his clothes again.
He instinctively reached out a hand to hold Ji Tong.
“…There are many people in the hospital. Don’t get lost.”
The child’s hand was soft and warm.
“Okay.” Ji Tong happily held hands with the handsome guy and secretly checked his appearance using the reflection of the car next to him.
The overalls that he carefully selected today were very cute.
Pei Qingyuan was dressed in a simple t-shirt and trousers. The two of them walked together and seemed like a pair of brothers with the cutest height difference, who came out of the comics. The rate of people turning heads to look at them was high.
At the same time, in the stream of people entering through the gate of the hospital, a young man in a hat and sunglasses saw this scene. He took off his sunglasses while thinking he had seen incorrectly.
“F*k, isn’t that Pei Qingyuan?” Qin Yujie, who had a weak complexion, spoke to himself. “He has a son? So soon?”
Then he hurriedly put his sunglasses on again. He looked to the left and right before following them.
Ji Tong held his host’s hand tightly the entire time and followed step by step. Pei Qingyuan deliberately slowed down his pace to match Ji Tong’s short legs.
As he walked, the straps on Ji Tong’s shoulders slipped off from time to time. He slipped them back up in a serious manner and many patients passing by stared at him with a smile.
After entering the physical examination area, Pei Qingyuan first did the test with the shortest queue. Ji Tong looked around at the queues before walking up and asking in a childish voice, “Big sister, is the electrocardiogram done here?”
The middle-aged woman repeatedly nodded when she heard this. She saw it was two children coming over for an examination and enthusiastically told them to do it first.
Soon, Ji Tong received the loving gazes of the big brothers and sisters of all ages in the physical examination area.
Pei Qingyuan quickly completed all the physical examination items and was inexplicably blessed, enjoying the treatment of a group pet. He smiled and rubbed Ji Tong’s head.
In the process, Ji Tong was keenly aware of a strange gaze.
A young man in famous brand name clothes was sneakily following the host.
He secretly asked Pei Qingyuan in his heart, “Ruan Ruan, quietly look at the man next to the potted plant to the left in front of you. He is always staring at you.”
He wasn’t in the host’s consciousness space right now, but the two of them could still communicate without relying on words.
Pei Qingyuan glanced in the direction that Ji Tong mentioned and his expression didn’t change.
“It is someone I knew from before, but we don’t know each other well.”
Ji Tong immediately understood.
It turned out to be a rich second generation that the host used to be acquainted with when living in the Pei family.
Why did a rich second generation come to the hospital and squeeze into the clinic?
Judging from the other person’s complexion and the frequency of going to the toilet, there was probably something unspeakable. He didn’t want to be exposed by going to the hospital that the wealthy circle often visited.
“Does he have kidney deficiency?” Ji Tong gossiped in a low voice.
“……” Pei Qingyuan thought about it seriously for a few seconds. “Maybe. I seem to have heard similar rumors.”
He was afraid that Ji Tong would be worried about Qin Yujie’s purpose and specially explained, “I don’t have a lot of intersections with him and the relationship is average. Perhaps it is because he met me by chance after I left the Pei family, so he is very curious.”
Ji Tong nodded and the loose strap slipped down crookedly again.
He habitually picked up the strap. Then he caught a glimpse of himself in the reflection of the smooth glass door and his eyes lit up. He suggested excitedly, “Host, I found a set of situation templates in the database that is very suitable for the current situation…”
Qin Yujie hid being a potted plant and typed quickly on his phone.
Just now, he had found his circle of scoundrel friends and asked about Pei Qingyuan’s relationship history. However, no one knew about it. Instead, he received a lot of ridicule as they asked him why he cared about someone who had been removed from the circle.
He didn’t know if Pei Qingyuan hid it too well or if he really hadn’t been in a relationship.
If it wasn’t his son then who was this child?
The urge to urinate again interrupted Qin Yujie’s desire for gossip. He sighed and got up to go to the bathroom.
However, just as he deliberately ran into a cubicle to avoid people’s eyes and ears, he heard a childish voice outside, who vaguely sounded like he was going to cry.
“Brother, does Dad really not want us?”
A clear, youthful voice responded to him.
The words were slightly cold and had Pei Qingyuan’s classic style.
It was Pei Qingyuan and that kid!
Qin Yujie held his breath while his eyes widened in shock. He wished he could grow a pair of ears with unnaturally good hearing and stick them out.
There was a sound of splashing water in front of the sink. It seemed that Pei Qingyuan was washing his brother’s face.
In the midst of the sobbing, the little boy’s aggrieved voice was particularly clear.
“Dad drove you away and doesn’t want me any longer… I want Dad.”
Qin Yujie’s brain, which he usually spent on drinking, was spinning rapidly.
It was known that Pei Qingyuan’s biological father died shortly after his birth, so it was impossible for him to have a younger brother.
It was also known that the person who was once called Father by Pei Qingyuan and who drove him away was Pei Minghong.
In addition, Pei Minghong’s legal wife, Ye Lanting had only one child. This used to be Pei Qingyuan and later became Pei Yan.
If Pei Minghong and his wife later gave birth to such a cute son, it would be impossible to hide it from the public.
So this child was Pei Minghong’s illegitimate son!!
Qin Yujie figured out this logic and almost jumped up in the cubicle.
Fortunately, Pei Qingyuan took away his little brother after washing his face. Their voices got further away and they didn’t notice any changes in the men’s bathroom.
Qin Yujie discovered this amazing secret and didn’t even want to check his illness. He squatted on the toilet, took out his phone, opened the chat intently and typed a message.
[F*k, guess who I just saw?!!!]
There were only two minutes left to remain in human form but Ji Tong didn’t feel sad at all. His face was full of smiles and he hummed a strange song as he walked out of the hospital.
Pei Qingyuan looked at him a bit helplessly. “What type of song is this?”
Ji Tong answered fluently, “This is a commonly used BGM marked in the database that expressed complicated feelings after learning of a husband’s cheating.”
Pei Qingyuan was speechless.
He had no problem with the system’s approach, but he couldn’t help feeling that the situation templates Ji Tong mentioned were really smart.
“My dad… Pei Minghong spends all day at work. There is no time for him to cheat so they probably won’t believe it in the end.”
“It doesn’t matter if they believe it or not.” Ji Tong shook his head. “Host, you said you weren’t happy in the Pei house before. So let them have a taste of being unhappy for a few days.”
Then he stretched out his fleshy fingers and seriously gestured.
“Even if it can only make trouble for a few days, this can be regarded as a bit of interest for the host.”
Pei Qingyuan stared at the short figure under the sun and his heart gradually filled with complex emotions.
He didn’t have time to say anything and heard Ji Tong say earnestly, “Brother, next time I will accompany you to the hospital~”
He wanted to experience fun things such as meeting the rich second generation with kidney deficiency today.
Pei Qingyuan looked at him with a subtle expression.
His system changed his words politely, blinking and giving him a big smile, “Of course, it is best to not come to the hospital unless it is for a physical examination.”
