MGAG: Chapter 105 Part 1

The Shen family came together. Chen Jianhong quickly walked over after seeing them arriving.

Shen Yuhuai greeted him from behind his parents. Then he saw Chen Qizhao coming over.

Not much attention was paid to clothing for this birthday party. The elders all wore suits and dresses, while the young man’s clothing was more casual. Chen Qizhao was wearing a loose, black outfit today with several brightly colored prints on his clothes. The black color made his skin look even fairer. In the past, Chen Qizhao’s skin wasn’t so white. It was just that recently, he was sick and hospitalized. He lost weight, and his face became a bit paler.

Shen Yuhuai noticed the other person’s eyes had stopped on his face. He couldn’t help taking two steps back and standing beside Chen Qizhao.

They rubbed shoulders, and amidst the conversation of the elders, under the cover of night, the two men’s hands touched together.

Chen Shiming’s gaze swept over them, and he nodded toward Shen Yuhuai.

The two of them briefly shook hands.

“Happy birthday, Qizhao.”

Chen Qizhao’s mind returned, and he noticed the woman who spoke.

Mother Shen was a gentle-looking woman. Her appearance wasn’t as gorgeous as Zhang Yazhi’s. However, once a person looked closely, they would find that Shen Yuhuai’s eyebrows were a bit like hers. She handed the prepared gift to Chen Qizhao. Her gentle temperament gave people great favor. Chen Qizhao took the gift and whispered thanks.

“You’ve lost weight recently,” Mother Shen said.

Zhang Yazhi agreed. “This kid has had a small appetite recently. He looked better when he had a bit of meat on her before.”

Father Shen said, “Boys shouldn’t be too fat. They should be thin and handsome.”

Chen Jianhong refuted it. “They shouldn’t be too thin.”

The two sets of parents started talking. Chen Qizhao stood aside and watched without saying a word.

Shen Xuelan couldn’t help glancing at the young man in front of her out of the corner of her eyes. After shedding his playful appearance, she found that Chen Qizhao looked more aggressive than Chen Shiming. His brows and eyes had become sharper after getting rid of his childishness. There was less concealment in his eyes when looking at people, and he was more mature.

The rumors about Chen Qizhao being a dandy were still being circulated in the outside world, but after getting in touch with him during this period of time, she realized that the rumors mentioned in the outside world might just be a layer of protection for this body. In fact, this boy hid many things, and she wasn’t able to deduce it very well. It was as if he could wear a mask casually. This mask might be difficult for even his close family members to see through.

Chen Qizhao noticed Shen Xuelan’s gaze and looked sideways at her.

Once their eyes met, Shen Xuelan noticed the brief defensiveness in the boy’s gaze. She smiled at him and quickly withdrew her gaze.

“You should give the child something to practice,” Father Shen looked at his old friend.

Chen Jianhong nodded. “He was a bit interested in the entertainment industry before. I plan to hand everything in the eastern district over to him.

Chen Qizhao was stunned for a moment. The eastern district was the pilot foundation of the Chen Group’s transformation. The entertainment companies were only part of it. He thought about how Chen Jianhong’s assistant had been running to his office all the time, and Xiao Zhou also handed him a lot of documents… He frowned slightly. “I can’t do this. Give it to Chen… just leave it to my brother.”

Chen Shiming noticed his term of address. “I’m busy with the affairs at headquarters, and the east district isn’t far from your school. You have more ideas than me. It is just right to hand it over to you. This is Dad’s birthday present to you.”

Chen Qizhao wanted to refuse. Then he looked at Chen Jianhong when he heard it was a birthday gift.

Chen Jianhong still had that strict face, but now he looked a bit less distant.

Chen Qizhao avoided his gaze. “Let’s talk about it later. It might not be possible to do it well.”

There were many eyes around them. Chen Qizhao chose to ignore their gazes. Seeing that Zhang Yazhi was still talking to Shen Yuhuai, he wasn’t in a hurry to leave here.

He wasn’t interested in the topic of his elders. He had just taken a few steps back when he noticed the sound of the phone vibrating in his pocket. He froze slightly, picked up his phone, and saw an anonymous caller.

Shen Yuhuai had just finished speaking with Zhang Yazhi when he noticed Chen Qizhao leaving the crowd and going to the fountain to answer the phone. His attention stayed on Chen Qizhao. After a while, he heard a few words of discussion from the elders around him.

“Gu Shen’s people have been a bit strange recently,” Father Shen said. “Before, they would’ve ambushed us. But during this time, they disappeared directly. The people who followed them said there was no movement. Some people even left S City.”

Chen Jianhong frowned and said, “No one from Gu Shen’s side has visited the prison recently.”

This situation had become a bit strange. Gu Shen himself was the breakthrough point for the police to investigate this matter. After cleaning up the industrial chain under Gu Shen one after another, the police had already arrested some people involved in the case. It was impossible for Gu Shen to get away with it. After staying in the detention center for so long, Gu Shen was powerless to recover. Now in this situation, Gu Shen should give some information to fight for a reduction of his sentence, but Gu Shen didn’t do so. He kept his mouth shut even after learning that Gu Zhengsong might blame him.

Now there was less contact with the outside world, like the calm before the storm.

Gu Shen remained silent, and Gu Zhengsong’s movements decreased. The actions of this father and son were difficult to fathom.

Shen Yuhuai listened to their distance and noticed that Chen Qizhao was coming back after making the phone call. Chen Qizhao didn’t look around, and his fingers were quickly replying to something on his phone. He didn’t raise his head until he noticed Shen Yuhuai’s gaze, and the coldness in his eyes disappeared instantly.

Chen Shiming also noticed Chen Qizhao by the fountain. His eyes stayed on the mobile phone that Chen Qizhao was holding for a few seconds, thoughtful.

“Shiming?” Chen Jianhong asked.

Chen Shiming’s attention shifted away from Chen Qizhao, and he gave Special Assistant Xu next to him a look. Special Assistant Xu immediately understood.

After a while, he suddenly looked at Shen Yuhuai.

Just as Shen Yuhuai lowered his head to reply to Yan Kaiqi’s message, he saw Chen Shiming. “Brother Shiming?”

“It’s okay.” Chen Shiming’s attention stayed on the transparent phone case for a moment before continuing to talk with Chen Jianhong.

Shen Yuhuai walked in the direction of Chen Qizhao.

Chen Qizhao’s friends were standing beside the fountain. Cheng Rong and Liu Kai had come over to say hello immediately when they noticed Chen Qizhao standing alone. Seeing the crowd in the distance, Chen Qizhao didn’t really think about going over there. He was standing and listening to them when he noticed Yan Kailin’s eyes staying on his hands.

“Is there something over here?” Chen Qizhao asked.

Yan Kailin said, “Brother, come closer. Let’s stick it together.”

Chen Qizhao glanced at him with a frown and avoided his hand. “Did you drink too much?”

Cheng Rong told him, “Leave him alone. He was just talking about Shen Yuhuai’s relationship. Halfway through, he became strange and wanted to hold hands with me.”

“Speak well. What holding hands? Isn’t it just sticking our shoulders together? You are so stingy.” Yan Kailin seemed to recall the scene of Chen Qizhao and Shen Yuhuai standing side by side not long ago. From his angle, Shen Yuhuai and his brother seemed to be holding hands, or maybe there was something wrong with his eyes.

Liu Kai told him, “Don’t do it. Your brother is still watching over there.”

Chen Qizhao’s attention was on another matter. He asked, “How do you know he is in a relationship?”

“I heard my brother saying it. He saw something on Shen Yuhuai’s tablet, and Shen Yuhuai admitted it.” Yan Kailin looked at Chen Qizhao. Shen Yuhuai being in a relationship was such a big thing, but his brother didn’t even blink.

Cheng Rong wondered, “You already knew?”

“Yes,” Chen Qizhao replied. Then he saw Shen Yuhuai walking toward him. “You guys talk. I’ll leave for a while.”

The moment this person left, he went to a place further away to talk to Shen Yuhuai.

“He isn’t going to inquire about dating, is he?” Cheng Rong asked.

Liu Kai replied, “It is possible. By the way, have you found that Xiao Zhao’s relationship with Shen Yuhuai seems to be really good?”

Cheng Rong nodded. “This is true. He also went over when Shen Yuhuai arrived just now.”

The three of them looked at each other, and the strange feeling in Yan Kailin’s heart became deeper and deeper. “Isn’t their relationship a bit too good?”

“Xiao Zhao, come and make a birthday wish,” Zhang Yazhi called out.

Shen Yuhuai’s phone rang at this time. “I’ll pick up the call.”

“Yes.” Chen Qizhao walked directly to Zhang Yazhi’s side.

During the harmonious and cheerful birthday party, the security of the villa quietly added some arrangements. Chen Qizhao finished cutting the cake, and the sweet and creamy taste spread between his lips and teeth. He was standing in the crowd with the cake plate. Out of the corner of his eye, he caught a glimpse of Chen Shiming and Shen Xuelan talking outside. Meanwhile, Chen Jianhong was having a happy chat with the Shen parents.

There were several unfamiliar faces among the security guards of the villa. Two people in civilian clothing came in and out of the party from time to time.

Chen Qizhao lowered his eyes slightly. The knife and fork in his hand paused for a moment before finally inserting into the strawberry on the surface of the cream.

“Why aren’t you eating?” A voice came from the side.

Chen Qizhao’s mind returned. “Have you finished the call?”

“Yes,” Shen Yuhuai responded. “It is a bit lively here. Do you want to go over there?”

The birthday party was bustling everywhere. The two of them walked from a bustling place to an empty place.

The cake was a bit greasy. Chen Qizhao didn’t want to continue eating and was planning to put the cake aside.

At this time, someone bumped into him from behind. The speaker didn’t notice it, and when he raised his hand, his elbow touched Chen Qizhao.

The tray in Chen Qizhao’s hand wasn’t held steadily. The tilted cake plate shook forward, and the cream stuck to Shen Yuhuai’s clothes.

Chen Qizhao: “……”

The guest who accidentally bumped into him showed guilt and was about to wipe Shen Yuhuai with a handkerchief. “Sorry, I didn’t notice it just now. Are you okay?”

The traces of the cake became more obvious. The more it was rubbed, the more it spread.

Chen Qizhao stopped the guest’s hand. If he kept wiping the clothes then it would be really unwearable. He frowned slightly. Seeing that the guest didn’t get any stains on his body, he ordered the surrounding servants to clean up the mess on the ground.

Once this matter was finished, he turned his head to look at the clothes on Shen Yuhuai’s body.

Shen Yuhuai was about to call the driver. He had a spare coat in his car.

It was just that as soon as he opened his contacts, he noticed Chen Qizhao’s gaze next to him.

“You can’t wear these clothes anymore.” Chen Qizhao looked at him and asked, “Go to my place to change clothes?”

Standing on the other side of the fountain, Special Assistant Xu looked at the two people walking toward the villa in the distance.

Before the birthday party started, Special Assistant Xu had received an order from his boss to pay more attention to Chen Qizhao.

Tonight’s birthday party seemed simple, but in fact, the surrounding security was very adequate. Every level of security checked them from the beginning. The Chen family was particularly fond of his birthday party. During this period of time, many things happened, and the dangers had increased. The Chen and Shen families were obvious targets. Since the ambush at the gate of the Chen Group, they had become more and more prepared for danger. There were also police guards right outside the villa.

But for the past few days, nothing had happened.

The sound of the fountain covered part of the speech. Special Assistant Xu sighed and just wanted to follow, when the phone suddenly rang.

Special Assistant Xu stopped, and his expression became serious. It was a call from the police.

Chen Shiming was talking to Shen Xuelan when he saw Special Assistant Xu running over with an anxious expression.

He stopped the conversation. “What’s wrong?”

“Boss, something happened with Gu Shen.”

The expressions of Chen Shiming and Shen Xuelan suddenly changed.
