MGAG: Chapter 78 Part 2

Chen Qizhao was thinking when he suddenly heard footsteps.

He turned his head slightly and saw Chen Jianhong and Chen Shiming walking over. Then they sat down next to him and Zhang Yazhi.

Chen Jianhong coughed after sitting down and looked at Zhang Yazhi next to him. “What are you looking at?”

“I’m looking at things. Xiao Zhao wants to buy me something.” Zhang Yazhi’s eyes were indifferent. “Weren’t you talking about work in the study?”

“We’re done with work.” Chen Jianhong looked at the TV in front of him and couldn’t name a single actor on the TV.

It was just that when watching the TV series, he glanced at Chen Qizhao not far away out of the corner of his eyes.

Chen Qizhao looked at Chen Shiming.

Chen Shiming noticed Chen Qizhao’s gaze. “Is there something on my face?”

Chen Qizhao looked away. “No, you look like door gods when sitting to the left and right.”

Chen Shiming: “……”

The TV series was still playing. Nie Chenxiao was playing a righteous hero in a new costume drama. The bustle of the living room overlapped with the bustle of the TV series. Chen Qizhao didn’t feel it was noisy at all. On the contrary, his mood suddenly improved.

“Xiao Zhao, Yuhuai seems to have sent you a message.” Zhang Yazhi had just chosen a bag when she saw this and handed the phone to Chen Qizhao. “I have chosen.”

Chen Qizhao stopped for a moment when he heard this. He took the phone and opened it to see the photo sent to him by Shen Yuhuai.

It was a photo of a new pot of succulents as always. It was like a goodnight greeting that the two of them exchanged every night.

Tonight’s abrupt act didn’t seem to have broken anything but it had also broken some type of restriction. It unknowingly became an act of tacit behavior.

Chen Qizhao felt that his fingers were a bit itchy. He didn’t reply to the message immediately. He withdrew to place an order for the bag selected by Zhang Yazhi.

At the moment of Shen Yuhuai, Zhang Yazhi suddenly thought of something. “Oh yes, we talked about something when eating at night. Isn’t it Yuhuai’s birthday next week? The Shen family plans to hold a birthday banquet.”

The Shen family had really wanted to hold a birthday banquet but Shen Yuhuai wasn’t in S City before. Therefore, they didn’t hold any big birthday celebrations.

At dinner this evening, Mother Shen mentioned this. It happened that Shen Yuhuai was in S City this year and wanted to hold a birthday banquet.

Once it came to the birthday banquet, Chen Qizhao became a bit dazed. He glanced at the date and noticed that there was less than half a month before Shen Yuhuai’s birthday.

There had been many things lately and his perception of dates was a bit slow.

Shen Yuhuai rarely celebrated his birthdays. In Chen Qizhao’s previous life, it was only when Shen Yuhuai celebrated his birthday that Shen Yuhuai’s birthday was mentioned. In his memory, Shen Yuhuai had celebrated his birthday several times but he could only celebrate Shen Yuhuai’s birthday once. At other times, Shen Yuhuai was either in the confidential research institute or Chen Qizhao was on a business trip and busy with work.

Then he was gone. Shen Yuhuai had died.

Chen Qizhao’s fingers lingered on the chat box. He had always felt he had forgotten something recently.

It turned out that he almost forgot Shen Yuhuai’s birthday.

Chen Qizhao asked, “Is a birthday party going to be held?”

Zhang Yazhi said, “It should be. Your aunt is very invested.”

Chen Qizhao got up and said, “You talk. I’m going to sleep.”

Chen Jianhong and Chen Shiming both looked at Chen Qizhao.

The latter took his phone and went upstairs without looking back.

The room was dark. Chen Qizhao called the housekeeper Uncle Zhang and asked him to measure Chen Jianhong’s blood pressure. In addition, he should take his evening medicine so that nothing happened if he really became angry.

He looked at his phone messages again and found that Shen Yuhuai had sent him two more photos of succulents.

It seemed like the photos would continue to be posted if he didn’t reply.

Chen Qizhao leaned against the door. The brightness of his phone screen illuminated his face.

He rummaged through the emoji packs on his phone, picked one of them and sent it out.

Shen Yuhuai came out of the bathroom and happened to see the moment his phone lit up.

He turned on his phone and his eyes darkened a bit when he saw the emoji. The cute kitten on the emoji seemed to overlap with the straightforward eyes in the night.

Underneath this well-behaved appearance was a show of teeth and claws.

[Zhao: Are you home?]

[Shen Yuhuai: I just came home.]

[Zhao: Are you going back to the institute tomorrow?]

[Shen Yuhuai: Yes, there is an experimental plan and it is estimated that I will be busy for a few days.]

Chen Qizhao looked at the message on the chat interface and his eyes sank a bit.

Shen Yuhuai would be busy. In other words, he would have no time these days.

He was a bit unsure of Shen Yuhuai’s attitude and tapped his finger on the screen.

At this time, a video call suddenly popped up.

Chen Qizhao’s fingertip moved slightly. He swiped the green button to connect and Shen Yuhuai’s voice came from the earpiece.

“Why is it so dark?”

Chen Qizhao was stunned for a moment. Then he casually pressed the switch next to the door. “It is on now.”

He looked at Shen Yuhuai in the video who seemed to have just taken a bath. He wasn’t wearing glasses and his wet hair was scattered. A few buttons of his pajamas were open and his skin seemed a bit red. He had a bath towel draped on his shoulders.

The eyes of the two briefly made contact. Chen Qizhao’s gaze moved down and stopped on the other person’s Adam’s apple.

“You just got back to your room?” Shen Yuhuai asked.

Chen Qizhao lied without changing his expression. “Yes.”

Shen Yuhuai suddenly said, “Your eyes moved again.”

Chen Qizhao blinked and said casually, “My eyes are a bit sore.”

“The experiment might take a few days… I should have no time to go out for the next few days.”

Shen Yuhuai asked, “Do you have time on Wednesday night?”

Chen Qizhao narrowed his eyes. “Yes.”

“Okay.” Shen Yuhuai wiped his hair. “Then I’ll pick you up at school.”

His gaze rested on Chen Qizhao’s face. “Then good night?”

“Good night.”

The room was quiet and Shen Yuhuai’s voice seemed to be the only source of sound.

After ending the call, the room returned to silence.

Chen Qizhao suddenly felt that he hung up too early.

He stood at the door for a while and his eyes lingered on the light switch for a moment. Then he walked to the table and turned on the computer. The screen soon lit up and he turned on the computer to download the information.

He sat for a while before finally going to the bathroom to take a quick shower.

After coming out, he clicked on the audio file on the computer.

The audio was the recording of Old Lin’s confession last time. Chen Shiming had taken a copy, copied the copy and sent it to him.

The recording was just a few clips and the voices of several segments were different. It could only be evidence that someone else had instructed Old Lin to commit the crime and no other details could be heard. Moreover, Lin Shizong wouldn’t do this type of calling and texting himself. From the details of the recording, it might be an insignificant person next to Lin Shizong.

When Chen Qizhao was reading documents at home, he would click on the recording and listen to it.

Now that he had listened to this recording for the fifth time, he couldn’t see any details but he had doubts about Old Lin’s confession. From the confession of the driver, he was sure that this person behind the scenes was a madman and not a small person… this gave the impression that he was very sure about the identity of the instigator.

Old Lin had seen Lin Shizong. If he was so sure of the person behind the scenes, he would’ve just confessed Lin Shizong directly.

However, he didn’t name Old Lin. This meant there was still a problem with this matter… the recording was just evidence of instigation and the problem still lay in the photo given by Old Lin.

The car in the photo, the person standing next to the car and the car that was parked on the street near the Lin Group.

It was impossible for Old Lin to directly judge the person behind the scenes from over the phone, so his words weren’t credible and lacked logical basis. Let’s assume it was a different situation… the person who instigated Old Lin through phone calls and text messages might be a small minion but Old Lin accidentally learned the person behind it. Through some means, he saw that person and could definitely call the other person a madman.

Maybe he didn’t know what the person behind the scenes was called. He had just seen this person.

Chen Qizhao’s gaze stopped on the photo, or the person in the car.

Besides Lin Shizong, who else could be the person in the car?

Lin Shizong’s subordinate? Or someone else?

Now there were several people checking the photo but they weren’t able to find the person standing next to the car and the owner of the car… Chen Qizhao was a bit unsure and always felt that he had overlooked something.

As he was thinking this, Yan Kailin sent him a message while singing karaoke with the others.

[Yan Kailin: Brother, will you go back to school tomorrow or the day after tomorrow?]

[Zhao: Tomorrow.]

Chen Qizhao suddenly thought of something. His eyes stayed on the calendar on the desk for a moment and he directly sent Yan Kailin a voice message. “Are you free tomorrow night? Come shopping with me?”

Yan Kailin quickly replied, “Huh? Okay. What to buy?”

Chen Qizhao lit a cigarette. “A birthday present.”

The nights were destined to be less peaceful.

On the other side of S City, Lin Shizong had just finished a phone call. The Sun family’s affairs were difficult to solve in a short time. He finally had to give up a few businesses before he barely slipped out from under the noses of the regulatory authorities.

He looked at the information on the computer and called another number.

The person on the other end of the phone quickly picked up. Lin Shizong simply said, “You need to act later on your plan. At the very least, you have to arrange this matter well or it will be difficult to arrange things on the Chen family’s side.”

The person on the other end of the phone smiled, “Okay. Then wait until you finish with the Sun family. Still, I have one thing to remind you of. You haven’t dealt with the necklace you lost at the charity meeting, right?”

“On the Chen family’s side, I will help you get that necklace back when the Chen family’s affairs are over.” Lin Shizong thought of the original necklace. The things arranged before were cut off by Chen Qizhao. Due to various factors, he couldn’t get this necklace from him. It wasn’t good for both parties to make a big fuss.”

“As I told you, if you couldn’t dispose of the necklace then you shouldn’t have let the necklace appear. The old man hasn’t stepped down yet and there are many people paying attention. “You should know that Gu Zhengxun is in S City.”

Lin Shizong paused slightly. “I know. The necklace was discovered by Gu Zhengxun?”

“Gu Zhengxun asked someone for information on the jade,” the person on the phone said. “There is no hurry. Now I have something to deal with.”

Lin Shizong asked, “What is so urgent?”

The voice of the person on the phone was a bit gloomy. “Someone found me here.”

In the villa of the Shen family, Shen Yuhuai suddenly received a call from Yan Kaiqi.

Yan Kaiqi’s voice sank a bit. “Yuhuai, someone has followed my IP.”

    Thanks for the chapter!

  2. I mean…that what’s happened when you stick your nose into someone’s business💁

    What happened to “I won’t smoke this time”? And then it was “only smoke when he was stressed”? He’s smoking for no reason a lot of the time, not only when he’s stressed. Plus, this happens when you don’t communicate. It’s so annoying how they don’t all communicate. Things would be solved more easily if everyone shared what they knew instead of each person doing their own thing and guessing things on their own. Plus I suspect Yuhuai was killed on purpose because he might’ve found something out. And didn’t the Yan family also encounter problems and that’s why Yan Kailin was dragged back overseas and communication was cut off? Qizhao knows very well he can trust Yuhuai because Yuhuai saw him at his worst and still was his friend and gave him a helping hand. I don’t know why he keeps pretending to be innocent. It was cute at first, but now it’s dragging and putting other people in danger.

    I have to say, I’m 100% sure that Yuhuai was still chasing our MC in the last life and as a concerned person checked the same things for him in the capital and got blown up in the lab to be silenced
