MGAG: Chapter 76 Part 2

“Yes, on the surface, Gu Zhengsong has no son. This Gu Shen is Gu Zhengsong’s illegitimate son,” the man in the flower shirt said proudly. “I found out about this matter through my friend’s connections. The Gu family is a very traditional family and it is difficult for an existence like an illegitimate child to enter the family tree. Gu Shen had no chance to show his face and he is just a rich second generation who does nothing in the wealthy circle of the capital. However, the news I heard is that… Gu Zhengsong actually cares about Gu Shen.”

Chen Qizhao frowned. “Why?”

“Gu Zhengsong can’t have any more children. His wife is dead and he only has two daughters born from his original wife. However, he doesn’t like these two children very much. There are too many dirty things in a big family. Gu Shen can say that he is Gu Zhengsong’s only son but it is difficult for an illegitimate son to get on the stage. It is just that if Gu Zhengsong obtains power, it is only a matter of time before he supports Gu Shen to gain a position.”

The man in the flower shirt continued, “Don’t look at Gu Shen acting like a rich second generation. I heard that this person is engaged in some things behind the scenes. As for what they are, I haven’t found out at the moment. Some people say that Gu Shen is very shrewd.”

“The reason why he appeared in S City recently seems to be because of travel. He happens to be familiar with some of the rich second generations of S City. The photos and videos you sent me should be from a party held by Cheng Rong of the Cheng family a while ago. Gu Shen followed these rich second generations at that time. He is from the capital and is quite well-known, so he can play well with them.”

Chen Qizhao frowned slightly. Gu Zhengsong and Gu Shen.

The current head of the Gu family had two sons. There was the eldest son Gu Zhengxun and the second son Gu Zhengsong. The current stage was the stage where the two sides were fighting for power. In his previous life, the rights of the Gu family fell into the hands of the second son Gu Zhengsong. He was also the backer who later cleared some obstacles for Lin Shizong.

To Gu Zhengsong, Lin Shizong was just an ordinary friend who gave him the necklace. It was already benevolent and righteous to help him out twice. After all, Lin Shizong’s accounts were too dirty. If the Gu family was involved in such a person then the impact of the subsequent revelations wouldn’t be small. So when Lin Shizong fell, the Gu family didn’t extend a helping hand and instead cleared up the relationship.

The appearance of Gu Shen made Chen Qizhao have a bad premonition.

In his previous life, did the Gu family really help Lin Shizong to return the kindness of the jade necklace or was there something else hidden?

In Chen Qizhao’s impression, Gu Zhengsong wasn’t a good person to get along with.

“Boss?” The man in the flower shirt called out.

Chen Qizhao said, “Continue to help me check Gu Shen. You can set the price.”

“Of course, it isn’t a problem at the moment.” The man in the flower shirt continued, “The boss has taken care of my business for so long. I will definitely handle this matter for you!”

Chen Qizhao hung up and didn’t go back to the private room immediately.

He pondered on Lin Shizong’s various arrangements slightly. He didn’t believe that Gu Shen’s appearance in S City was a coincidence. In the absence of the jade necklace, if Lin Shizong really hooked up with the Gu family then Gu Shen’s appearance in S City might be intentional… at the pool party that day, Gu Shen was watching their side.

“Brother, why did you go for so long?” Yan Kailin saw Chen Qizhao returning to the private room and immediately said, “In the evening, we plan to see karaoke and then go to the suburbs to play…”

“You guys play. I have something to do at night.” Chen Qizhao sat down. “My mother said there are guests in the evening and I need to go back.”

Zhang Yazhi often sent messages to Chen Qizhao recently and cared about Chen Qizhao’s studies. This time, it happened to be the weekend and there were important guests coming. Chen Qizhao thought about how he didn’t go back last week and simply agreed to Zhang Yazhi. After drinking with Yan Kailin and the others, Chen Qizhao called a car and returned to the villa.

On the way, the message he sent to Shen Yuhuai hadn’t received a reply.

Chen Qizhao clicked on Shen Yuhuai’s Moments but there was no update. He scrolled through Shen Yuhuai’s Moments from beginning to end until he was stopped by the access restriction. He withdrew from Shen Yuhuai’s Moments and continued to look at the Moments of his other friends. Suddenly, he saw something in Liu Sui’s Moments.

Liu SUi had posted a photo of instant noodles paired with a court drama.

Chen Qizhao paused a bit when he heard this. Shen Yuhuai hadn’t replied to him today and he thought Shen Yuhuai was still busy in the laboratory. But looking at this photo posted by Liu Sui… they seemed to be resting today?

[Zhao: Brother Liu is off today?]

He had just sent the message when Liu Sui instantly replied.

[Liu Sui: I’m resting! I’ve been bored to death these days. Do you want to go out for dinner tonight?]

[Zhao: If there is something at night, you can call Brother Huai.]

[Liu Sui: Shen Yuhuai isn’t here. He went out last night and he didn’t return to the laboratory today.]

Chen Qizhao’s hand stopped and he didn’t type again.

Liu Sui was still typing over there.

[Liu Sui: Regardless of this, recently when I have been asking him to eat dinner, he always said that he has something to do at night. I don’t know what he is busy with but I can never find him when he leaves the laboratory. Last time, I finished my thesis and wanted to ask him to dinner, but he rejected me!]

[Zhao: Are you done with your thesis?]

[Liu Sui: I was done at the beginning of the month. I heard a delicious store opened in front of your school but I haven’t eaten there yet…]

The beginning of the month… the beginning of the month was when he went to eat hot pot with Shen Yuhuai.

Shen Yuhuai had told him that Liu Sui hadn’t finished his thesis.

Chen Qizhao’s eyes sank slightly.

“Little brother, the car can only be parked here. It seems I can’t go in.” The driver of the car looked at the person on the back seat. “How about this place?”

“Yes.” Chen Qizhao’s gaze stopped on the chat record. He told Liu Sui that he had something to do in the evening and got out of the car after paying.

The place where he got off was some distance from the Chen family’s villa. Chen Qizhao walked for a few minutes before reaching the gate of his house.

He entered the garden and noticed that there seemed to be a few more cars in the direction of the garage. It was seven in the evening but the two workaholics of his family seemed to have already returned home?

Chen Qizhao was thoughtful while wondering about who had come to the house.

He entered, greeted the housekeeper waiting at the door and suddenly saw several familiar faces as he was making a detour to the living room.

The Shen family’s parents, Shen Xuelan and… Shen Yuhuai.

Chen Qizhao looked at Shen Yuhuai.

Shen Yuhuai also seemed to notice his gaze and nodded at him when he looked over.

Seeing this, Zhang Yazhi said, “Qizhao, you’re back.”

In addition to the Shen family, there was an unfamiliar man and woman. The man looked to be the same age as Chen Jianhong and seemed very serious from a distance. The woman sitting next to him looked very beautiful. They seemed to be husband and wife.

If it was the Shen family then the workaholics of his family might indeed put down their work to come back early.

Chen Qizhao greeted them. He looked around and finally sat down next to Shen Yuhuai.

There were many people in the living room and Chen Qizhao was basically attached to Shen Yuhuai when he sat down. He thought of the news he received from Liu Kai before coming in and asked in a low voice, “There is no reply to the message I sent you.”

Shen Yuhuai turned sideways slightly and his warm breath covered Chen Qizhao’s ears. “I didn’t look at my phone. It isn’t very convenient when elders are present.”

Chen Qizhao’s ears were a bit itchy. As Shen Yuhuai fell silent, the surrounding air surged over and the heart of that moment seemed to dissipate. He lowered his eyes slightly. His gaze stopped on Shen Yuhuai’s thigh that was close to him and his eyes became a bit deeper.

“Isn’t the laboratory busy today?” Chen Qizhao asked.

Hearing this, Shen Yuhuai looked sideways at him and approached him slightly. “It isn’t busy. It is a rest today.”

“I thought you would go out to dinner with Brother Liu on the weekend.” Chen Qizhao didn’t look at Shen Yuhuai and asked in his usual tone. “Brother Liu is still busy with the thesis?”

“Yes,” Shen Yuhuai replied.

“Is that so…” Chen Qizhao lowered his eyes and looked at the thighs that were tightly pressed together.

Shen Yuhuai was wearing a pair of black pants today. His bent legs were long and thin. His hands were casually draped over his legs and blue veins were clearly visible on the back of his hands.

…Shen Yuhuai was deceiving people.

Chen Qizhao looked at this person’s knuckles and his gaze deepened a bit.

Then the unfamiliar woman spoke.

“Qizhao’s relationship with Yuhuai seems to be good?” The beautiful woman’s gaze came over here.

Chen Qizhao politely called her ‘Auntie.’

“The two of them can play together,” Zhang Yazhi said. “As children, Yuhuai often came here.”

The beautiful woman smiled and looked at Chen Qizhao with a bit of affection in her eyes. “Yazhi, the child looks like you.”

The eyes of the two people in the main seat also looked over. The first one Chen Qizhao noticed was the slightly old-fashioned middle-aged man who looked a bit familiar. He seemed to have seen this person somewhere before. After a while, Chen Jianhong opened his mouth and introduced this person. “This is your Uncle Gu.”

“Uncle Gu?” Chen Qizhao’s hands clenched slightly. Once he heard this surname, he suddenly remembered where he had seen this person. He remembered why it felt familiar. The person in the photo he had just seen in the afternoon looked very similar to the person in front of him… or perhaps he had also seen the photo of the person in front of him.

Gu Zhengxun, the eldest son of the Gu family.

The couple was Gu Zhengxun and his wife.

Chen Qizhao lowered his eyes slightly. Their family and the Gu family should have nothing to do with each other at all. In his impression, Chen Jianhong and Gu Zhengxun had no business dealings at all. Why did Gu Zhengxun and his wife suddenly come to the door at this time?

He didn’t make a sound. He maintained his usual expression and carefully observed the situation.

Shen Yuhuai noticed the silence of the person beside him. His eyes stopped on Chen Qizhao’s hand on his thigh and the place where his index finger touched was slightly white.

The boy didn’t speak. He didn’t seem to have changed from usual but his state was tense.

Shen Yuhuai hesitated slightly. From his perspective, he could only see the side of Chen Qizhao’s face. If he hadn’t noticed the subtle movements of Chen Qizhao’s fingers, he might not have been able to detect it. Chen Qizhao was like a small animal tightly wrapped in a shell, vigilantly observing something.

Chen Qizhao cared about the Gu family very much…?

The bustle in the living room continued and the housekeeper came over to refill the tea.

Chen Qizhao didn’t notice the eyes of the person beside him. His attention was all on the conversation between Chen Jianhong and the others.

Gu Zhengxun was talking to Chen Jianhong and Father Shen also participated. They were talking about some business things. From this conversation, he heard that Gu Zhengxun came to S City on a business trip. The reason he came here today was due to the Shen family. It seemed that the Gu family wanted to discuss something with the Chen family, so they asked the Shen family.

Chen Qizhao was a bit surprised by this. He hadn’t expected the Shen family and Gu family to know each other.

Chen Qizhao didn’t speak but he was thinking about things in his heart.

He suddenly caught a glimpse of Chen Jianhong putting a jewelry box in front of him.

Just then, Chen Qizhao suddenly felt something itchy from his thigh.

His mind returned and he saw the finger of the person beside him tapping on his thigh.

“Are you distracted?”

Shen Yuhuai’s voice was very close.
