Chapter 874: I’m a Beast Dressed in Clothes
“I don’t know from how many years ago, I have been competing with my eighth brother, my grandfather, and my own reputation. In the future, I will no longer care about these things. I just want to live as I please.” After Sheng Kai said this, even he himself felt that he was extremely childish. Therefore, in the eyes of his eighth brother, it should be the same, right?
“Then, that’s it. Only by putting aside the surface of nothingness can people live freely.”
After Song Qiaozhi said this, she walked to Sheng Kai’s wine cabinet and took out a bottle of red wine and a goblet. “I think this moment is worth celebrating.”
The two of them drank on the sofa. Unknowingly, the atmosphere became somewhat awkward… and somewhat ambiguous.
Sheng Kai put down his wine glass and looked at Song Qiaozhi whose cheeks were blushing, and asked, “Then… are you still in love with your fiancé?”
“It’s been so long. What is there to love? I’m sorry,” Song Qiaozhi answered with her head lowered. “Every time I think of his cold corpse, I feel a hatred in my heart that drives me to seek revenge on Song Jiang.”
“It’s all in the past,” Sheng Kai held her hand and said. “It’s getting late. Go back and rest early.”
Song Qiaozhi shook her head and lay on the sofa. “I’ll stay here with you.”
“In that aspect, I’m a beast dressed in clothes,” Sheng Kai said bluntly.
With the help of the alcohol, Song Qiaozhi sat on Sheng Kai. She hooked his chin and said tipsily, “It just so happens that I’m an authoritative doctor in this aspect. Don’t you want something to happen in this kind of atmosphere?”
If he didn’t want to, would he still be considered a man?
However, Sheng Kai couldn’t tell what kind of feelings he had for Song Qiaozhi. He just thought that the feeling wasn’t bad.
In a trance, he would also realize that he was a moth. He knew that there was a bright flame in front of him, but he still didn’t care about his own safety.
The next morning, Sheng Kai woke up on the sofa with Song Qiaozhi lying beside him. The two of them had been honest with each other. Obviously, whatever should have happened or not had already happened last night.
It was precisely because she was an expert in this area that Song Qiaozhi was more open-minded in such matters. Unlike Gu Ziling who always waited for the man to please her, this surprised Sheng Kai.
Then, the doorbell rang.
Sheng Kai carried Song Qiaozhi to the bed and covered her body with a thin blanket.
However, Sheng Kai did not expect it to be Song Jiang. Last night, he had slept with his daughter.
Song Jiang saw his expression and knew what had happened. “Xiao Qiao is here, right?”
Sheng Kai was stunned for a second and nodded. “She’s still sleeping.”
“Let her sleep. We’re both men. I can understand. Today, I’m here because I have an errand for you to do. However, you and Qiaozhi are like glue. I’m afraid you can’t be separated.”
“Godfather, please tell me,” Sheng Kai said straightforwardly.
“There are a few friends in J City whom I need your help in greeting on my behalf. Can you take care of them for me?”
“Of course.” Sheng Kai replied with a nod. However, his heart was cold because he knew that Song Jiang was dragging him into trouble. They were very clear about what was going on in J City.
“Then, pack up and leave at noon. Qiaozhi can’t go. I have other things to tell her,” Song Jiang instructed. In other words, he wanted to have Song Qiaozhi by his side so that they wouldn’t play any tricks.
“Since it’s still early, I won’t disturb you two lovebirds.” Song Jiang left Sheng Kai’s apartment.
Song Qiaozhi heard their conversation from behind the door. She walked out as soon as Song Jiang left.
“He asked you to greet the people in J City. If anything happens, you’ll be the first one to get into trouble.”
Both of their faces didn’t look good, but Sheng Kai smiled. “Got to pay the price for sleeping with his daughter, don’t you think?”
“I’ll only be gone for three days. I’ll be fine. If I find anything, I’ll contact you.”
Song Qiaozhi did not say anything. She just walked up to Sheng Kai and hugged him. “You have to stay alive.”
Sheng Kai was speechless as well. He just carried her and went back to the bedroom.
This trip was like a bottomless abyss…
In the afternoon, Zhongteng.
Xu Che had already made all the necessary arrangements. Then, he asked Sheng Xiao for his instructions. “You can return the favor now. Are we going to make a move?”
“Go ahead.” Sheng Xiao only said two words. Of course, he wouldn’t have known that his operation this time would inadvertently save Sheng Kai from a dangerous trip.
After preparing for a few days, they finally made a move at a hotel in J City. Someone had reported that the hotel was involved in illegal activities and there was evidence. The police were now targeting a certain hotel.
This incident happened while Sheng Kai was packing up his things, and Song Jiang suddenly called. “Ah Kai, you don’t have to go for now. There’s a small situation over there.”
Sheng Kai did not understand the whole story, but Song Jiang hung up the phone.
Sheng Xiao had taken advantage of Mama Bai’s death. She was a pimp when she was alive, and the people she handled had a lot of contact with Su Hong.
Someone had reported that a certain hotel provided illegal services and had provided a small card found in the hotel. Moreover, the information had been sent everywhere. It was not easy for the higher-ups to suppress it, so they had to go through the procedures.
These were all trivial matters, but they had delayed Song Jiang’s major event.
Song Jiang had a party on Saturday, and now he was being watched by the police at all times. Would those timid people still dare to come to the party?
He had finally managed to gather everyone together, and now, no matter what he said, it was going to be ruined.
“Who’s the one who reported it? Do you want to die?”
It was rare for Song Jiang to lose his temper, but for a while, he could not contact Sheng Xiao. Jianchuan and J City were hundreds of kilometers apart, but Song Bozhi firmly believed that this matter was definitely Sheng Xiao’s doing.
“Dad, we should have moved a long time ago.”
“I know.” Song Jiang nodded. “Let me find the person who’s causing trouble. I’ll make him pay for it.”
“I’m afraid you won’t have the chance because you can’t touch that person right now.” Song Bozhi smiled. “Think about it. Besides him, who else could ruin your plans?”
“Weren’t you thinking of ways to keep him busy? Now you’re busy with me?”
“He’s taking revenge on me for exposing Mu Qiqi’s pregnancy,” Song Bozhi guessed. “It’s all because you weren’t careful enough that you gave Sheng Xiao a chance.”
“I’ll be more careful in the future,” Song Jiang said and went back to his room. He thought about how much money he had spent to invite those people to a gathering, and now it was all gone.
Of course, as he had not told Sheng Kai about this beforehand, he did not think that Sheng Kai had revealed anything. If he had not planned this matter for a few days, it would not have been possible, and Sheng Kai could not have predicted it.
Sheng Xiao was too troublesome to deal with!
