Chen Qizhao saw this signature and his expression instantly became gloomy.
The matter of Qin Xingfeng could just be described as his young self being deceived and suffering losses. Yet if Ruizhen Electronics was involved then it was different. After the Chen family fell in the previous life, Chen Qizhao spent many years sorting out the conspiracy behind the bankruptcy of the Chen family. The evidence alone cost him a lot of manpower and financial resources. The investigation was long and he didn’t let go of any trivial details at all, especially all those involved with Lin Shizong.
Among them was Ruizhen Electronics, a small company that wasn’t known to anyone.
This company wasn’t under Lin Shizong’s name but it often handled some private accounts for Lin Shizong. Many of Lin Shizong’s shady accounts were in this type of company. Ruizen Electronics was just one of the ‘companies’ but it was used as one of the evidence against Lin Shizong being imprisoned later.
Then why was Qiu Xingfeng related to this company?
Chen Qizhao suddenly thought of something and a hint of strangeness flashed in his eyes.
The room was quiet.
Zhang Yazhi didn’t notice Chen Qizhao’s strange appearance and continued speaking, “S College isn’t bad and it is close to home. Isn’t the major of this school optimistic? Are there two days until you need to fill in the application form for your major?”
Chen Qizhao glanced at Chen Qizhao and slightly disagreed. “Your score is enough to enter B College.”
S College might be a famous school but it was still a bit far away from the famous B College.
Chen Qizhao added, “I don’t have enough professional points for B College.”
Just as Chen Shiming wanted to speak, Zhang Yazhi interjected from next to him.
Zhang Yazhi said, “It isn’t impossible to go to B College. It is enough to enter and then change majors. If there is no way, we can have your father donate two buildings for B College.”
“Mom, he has the ability to enter on his own. He is just being stubborn with you.” Chen Shiming turned to Chen Qizhao and found that the other person’s attention was on his phone. He had to give a reminder, “Chen Qizhao.”
Chen Qizhao was pulled back from his thoughts. He looked up and met Chen Shiming’s slightly displeased gaze.
His gaze went back to the phone screen and his tone was calm. “I’m not going to B College.”
B College was far from S City. Many things would be beyond his control once he left this place.
Chen Shiming didn’t want to repeat yesterday’s quarrel with Chen Qizhao and changed his tone to discuss it with Chen Qizhao. “Your score is enough. If you don’t want to waste a few years, you should fill in this application form carefully.”
“Traditional industries are declining and many companies are transforming. Everyone is staring at the development signs of emerging industries. They can’t help squeezing in and getting a piece of the pie when there is a chance.” Chen Qizhao didn’t look at Chen Shiming and spoke to himself. “However, this meat is only delicious when first eaten and it isn’t delicious if you eat what others have left behind. Mobile Internet has taken up a large proportion of the current market. Looking further forward, all ways of life rely on the Internet. It has been a long time since the traditional market dominated the mainstream. Based on the rapid development of intelligent technology, how can you be sure that the future won’t have artificial intelligence being the mainstream?”
Chen Shiming heard this and there was a bit of surprise and caution in his eyes as he asked, “Who told you this?”
Chen Qizhao didn’t speak and generously showed him the mobile phone screen before withdrawing it. “I read it online. If you want to listen, I can continue reading it to you.”
Chen Shiming: “……”
His blood pressure became a bit high.
Who knew that Chen Qizhao would add another sentence.
“I reported it and filled it out when I came back last night.”
The vein of Chen Shiming’s forward twitched. “Don’t tell me that your hands shook due to the hangover.”
“Yes.” Chen Qizhao turned off the mobile phone screen. “My hands shook and I accidentally chose finance.”
Chen Shiming returned to the company while Special Assistant Xu helped Zhang Yazhi and Chen Qizhao back to the Chen family’s villa.
Assistant Xu thought of the look on his boss’ face when he left and couldn’t help glancing at the rearview mirror. The boy with the cap in the back seat was looking down at his mobile phone. His slender fingers quickly slid across the screen like he was reading some news.
Zhang Yazhi thought of the scene just now and said, “The major selection matter is fixed like this. I think that S College is very good. It is close to home and it is more convenient to go home on weekends. Both of you brothers have a hard mouth and will sometimes quarrel about things that can be communicated well. Wasn’t it good just now?”
Chen Qizhao raised his eyes slightly in an uncertain manner. “…Was it good?”
He had already learned the original major in his previous life. He chose finance so he would have a good reason to intervene in the affairs of the group and it would be convenient to pull out Lin Shizong’s spies.
“What is wrong? Yesterday, the two of you quarreled at home and Old Zhang told me that two vases were broken.” Zhang Yazhi patted him on the shoulder. “I said the two of you should talk well, but you make a lot of trouble every time. Your brother’s temper is like your father’s. It will be fine if you talk a bit softly.”
“It isn’t about being soft.” Zhang Yazhi thought about it for a long time before saying, “Just be obedient and don’t rush with him.”
Chen Qizhao’s gaze on the mobile phone stopped for half a second before he quickly swiped to the next page.
In his last life when his relationship with Chen Shiming was at its worst, they argued almost every time they met and mutual submission didn’t exist in front of the two of them. Sometimes, there was no reason to argue at all. Just a word from the two people could become a reason to lose their temper or quarrel. This seemed to be carved into the bones and gradually became a habit.
Later, Chen Shiming was paralyzed in a car accident and seemed to have fallen into the abyss. He became taciturn, depressed and indifferent.
Chen Qizhao looked down and said carelessly, “There is nothing wrong with arguing.”
It was better to fiercely vent his emotions rather than suppressing it at the bottom of the heart, falling from arrogance to a sick dog.
Then in the blink of an eye, that person was gone.
Zhang Yazhi disagreed. “What is good about arguing?”
She gave up on persuading her youngest son and said, “There is no overnight feud with your older brother. This application thing has passed. Don’t think about it.”
Chen Qizhao returned home and started to check Ruizhen Electronics.
On the way, he had used his phone to check the distribution of Lin Shizong’s assets and several known cronies. He probably understood the scale of the Lin development at this stage. It hadn’t yet expanded to the level of the future but it was still a tough nut to crack.
The browser of his computer soon showed the search results related to Ruizhen Electronics. Chen Qizhao scanned all types of information and focused on the development of Ruizhen Electronics in the last one to two years. He found that the company’s development momentum during this period was very strong and several projects had even made a name for themselves in the industry. Now there was a trend of gradually advancing to the Internet market.
It was just like Qin Xingfeng said. The development prospects of the company were very good, at least on the surface.
Chen Qizhao didn’t waste too much time here. He quickly jumped to the shareholder legal person page and glanced at each name. His hand sliding the mouse slowly down.
There weren’t any familiar names or a relative of Lin Shizong.
The current Ruizhen Electronics wasn’t in Lin Shizong’s hands? Then what role did Qin Xingfeng play here?
Chen Qizhao’s eyes rolled. Finally, they focused on the water cup next to the computer screen and muttered thoughtfully, “It is kind of interesting…”
Originally, he just wanted Qin Xingfeng to harm others without suffering the consequences himself. However, if Qin Xingfeng was really closely related to Ruizhen Electronics, or indirectly related to Lin Shizong then everything would be different. In his last life, he hadn’t figured out the relationship between these people. Ruizhen Electronics was just a small private account of Lin Shizong’s. If it was true that these two people had a relationship…
Lin Shizong’s hands stretched out longer than he had expected.
The information about Ruizhen Electronics on the Internet was limited and it was difficult to summarize the in-depth things based on superficial information alone.
If it was his previous life, Chen Qizhao would’ve immediately handed this over to his assistant to investigate this type of thing. Finding out superficial and private information about Ruizhen Electronics was effortless. However, in his current situation, his connections and capital were nothing. The people who knew him were basically useless. He could only rely on external forces if he wanted to investigate Ruizhen Electronics without disturbing Lin Shizong.
There was no way for him to tell Chen Shiming directly. Not only was there the strange matter of rebirth, if he just said that there were commercial spies in the group then it would only make people think he was whimsical and deliberately making trouble, based on his usual level of uselessness.
The room was quiet and the browsing page on the screen had changed.
Chen Qizhao was thinking about things when his phone buzzed and vibrated. Then the caller ID popped up.
He glanced at it before closing the website page with a flick of his finger.
Ever since the morning, there had been one or two occasional calls. Chen Qizhao hung up a few times.
He didn’t have an impression of the names in the contact notes. Most of them were a group of scoundrels that he loved to make friends with in the past. The period around the age of 18 was his late rebellious period and he made friends with everyone. Now thinking about it, he was probably a bit lucky that he didn’t mess up his college university examination at the time.
These so-called friends ran away faster than anyone when the Chen family had problems. Chen Qizhao later learned that these people just used him as a cash machine on call. They ate, drank and played with him but they talked about him more behind his back.
Saying that they were good to him was just a hoke. Behind his back, one hated him more than the other.
Looking at the chat software where he hadn’t replied to the messages, the phone calls were mostly people from yesterday’s drinking party. They said they were concerned but in fact, they were secretly inquiring about Chen Shiming’s situation. Most likely, they were worried about experiencing a disaster and that Chen Shiming would find trouble for them.”
The phone rang with perseverance and Chen Qizhao was annoyed by the vibration.
The moment the phone was answered, there was a boy’s careless voice mixed with noisy background sounds.
Chen Qizhao threw his phone onto his bed after hearing a few sentences and turned to change into pajamas.
The quality of sleep last night wasn’t very good. It was only a morning later and his forehead hurt a bit.
After he came back from changing, the call still hadn’t disconnected.
“Hey hey hey? Is it a bad signal on your side? Can you hear me?”
“Damn, could it be that my signal is bad?”
Chen Qizhao half lowered his eyes and drank two sips of water. “Speak.”
“I don’t seem to have a good signal. I didn’t hear you just now.” The boy on the other side said. “See you at the old place tonight to hold a welcome back party for Lin Zai! It will be too much if you don’t come!”
The other person didn’t hear a sound for a while. He thought that his signal really wasn’t good so he hung up the phone. Then he sent a text message to Chen Qizhao.
Chen Qizhao sneered. He deleted the information with a stroke of his hand. Then he turned off the machine and threw it aside.
In the evening, a beam of headlights entered the garage of the villa. Chen Shiming arrived home on time.
He noticed a subtle difference the moment he arrived home. Zhang Yazhi wasn’t home because she had gone out shopping with her little sister. The living room was empty and a bit too quiet. Chen Shiming pinched between his eyebrows and asked the housekeeper, “Is he out fooling around again?”
“No, Second Young Master is upstairs sleeping.”
Chen Shiming stopped the hand that was undoing his tie. He asked, “Is he uncomfortable?”
The housekeeper shook his head. “It shouldn’t be. It is just that Second Young Master’s medicine hasn’t been taken yet.”
The large bag of anti-inflammatory medicine and painkillers brought back from the hospital was still alone in its original position.
Chen Shiming said coldly, “Day and night are reversed. Even if he isn’t sick, he will torment himself to the point of getting sick.”
Then he said, “Go and see him. If he is really uncomfortable then call the doctor over.”
The housekeeper left. After a while, he came down again and said that the door was locked.
Chen Shiming ordered, “Call him.”
The housekeeper wanted to talk but stopped.
Chen Shiming frowned.
The housekeeper said, “Second Young Master has turned off his phone.”
The corridor was quiet and the bright white light shone all the way to the end. By the time Chen Qizhao woke up, it was already more than 8 o’clock in the evening. He went downstairs and found Chen Shiming sitting in the living room.
Chen Shiming had just ended a call when he saw his uneasy brother going downstairs. His voice didn’t fluctuate. “There is hot porridge in the kitchen. Take the medicine after eating.”
Chen Qizhao didn’t move. Only his eyes moved as he fell into thought.
Chen Shiming didn’t want to take care of people but Chen Qizhao had something to do with him.
Chen Shiming was looking at a document but there was an extra gaze on him. Finally, he couldn’t help raising his head. “If you want to lose your arm or get an infection from an inflammation, you can continue to stand there.”
Chen Qizhao selectively ignored Chen Shiming’s words. He was about to open his mouth when he caught a glimpse of someone’s face that was as stinky as usual. He suddenly thought of Zhang Yazhi’s words during the day and pondered on it for a moment. He thought for a few seconds before his tone took a 180 degree change. “A friend is looking for me to invest in something. Do you have time to help me take a look?”

Little Chen with a cold face: Brother.
Big Chen looked up in surprise: How much have you had to drink?
