On the other end of the phone, Kim Eun-hee was holding the phone in one hand and a dagger in the other. At this moment, the dagger was placed on a woman’s neck, while she had a warm smile on her face. However, the hand holding the dagger did not move at all, and even though her eyes were not on the woman, the woman had no doubt that if she dared to move, the dagger would slip through her carotid artery without hesitation.
Kim Eun-hee hung up the phone, looked at the woman, and saw that she was sitting there honestly, motionless, so she withdrew the dagger, but did not put it away, instead she started playing with it in her hand, the sharp dagger in her hand with a glowing cold light was like an obedient toy.
Jin Enxi had a cute smile on her baby face, but her eyes were icy when she looked at the woman, “Tell me, why are you following Shen Qinglan.”
The woman had an oriental face with delicate facial features, and she was very beautiful. There was no expression on her face. To be exact, since she was taken away by Kim-Eun-Hee last night, her face had always been like this, even when Kim- Eun-Hee pointed a dagger at her neck and her life was in the hands of others, her expression did not fluctuate.
“Che, or don’t talk, do you think I can’t do anything about you if you don’t talk?” Kim-Eun-Hee had taken an apple in her hand at some point, the dagger fluttered at her fingertips, and after a while, a beautiful apple flower appeared on her fingertips.
She looked at the apple flower and seemed to be very satisfied with her work. She put the apple flower aside and picked up another apple, but instead of cutting it, she brought the sharp edge of the dagger close to the woman’s face, just one inch away. It could touch the woman’s face, if she moved a little bit, and the woman could even feel the chill on the sharp blade.
“What would you say if this dagger scratches your pretty face?” Jin Enxi asked with a smile.
The woman’s expression changed slightly, but she returned to her natural state in an instant.
“You aren’t afraid, yes, the technology is so advanced now, even if you are disfigured, go do an operation, and the beauty will come back, but after returning, maybe it would not be this face, I can’t tell.”
Seeing this the woman’s eyes widen and the panic that flashed past, Jin Enxi laughed even more joyfully, the dagger was moved further away from the woman’s face, as she said, “Of course, as long as you tell me why you are following Shen Qinglan and what you want to do, then I will let you go. How about it? I’m a good talker, and I’ll definitely do it when I say it. This deal is also very good, do you want to think about it?”
The woman looked up at Jin Enxi and finally said the first sentence. She said, “You and Shen Qinglan are not related, so why do you want to help her?”
“You want to manipulate me,” Kim Eun-Hee giggled and patted the woman’s face lightly with the side of the dagger, “If I was so easy for you to manipulate, if others find out, where will my Kim Eun-Hee’s face, go? I advise you not to play tricks, you’d better tell me honestly the purpose of your stalking Shen Qinglan.”
The woman’s eyes stared straight at Jin Enxi, “I wasn’t following her.”
“Tsk…tsk…tsk…, still refusing to tell the truth, “Kim Eun-Hee sighed, kept the dagger aside, raised her hand and slapped the woman’s face with such strength, that blood immediately flowed from the corner of the woman’s mouth.
“You think I’m blind.” Kim Eun-Hee blew her red palms, and there was distress on her face. This woman’s face was so thick that her hands hurt. She knew that she should have found a shoe sole to hit her.
The woman’s face immediately turned ashen, as she looked at Kim Eun-Hee with fire-breathing eyes.
Kim Eun-Hee laughed even more happily, “That’s right, this kind of expression is right, the expressionless look just now made me feel awkward.” I thought it was Ann who was facing me, she muttered softly.
“I said that I didn’t follow Shen Qinglan, she just happened to be on my way.”
“Oh, since you don’t want to tell the truth, then stay here, I have nothing to do anyway, it’s good to spend time with you, there is still a person to talk to me.”
The woman’s face became more and more ugly, and there was an imperceptible anxiety in her eyes.
On the other hand, Jin Enxi was sitting on the sofa and watching TV. This was a suite in a hotel in the capital. It was very quiet. She didn’t go back to Shang Yayuan, for fear that Shen Qinglan would suddenly come to the house to find her.
This woman followed Shen Qinglan for a day, if it wasn’t for Jin Enxi who happened to have something to do with Shen Qinglan, she wouldn’t have found out. If it weren’t for this strange woman, Jin Enxi would not have appeared at the annual meeting of the Junyu Group. She wanted to deal with this woman before the annual meeting, but she lost her trace after going on the boat and it took a lot of effort to catch her.
On the other side, Shen Qinglan hung up the phone with dark eyes. She was sure that Jin Enxi was hiding something from her, but she also believed that Jin Enxi would not do anything to hurt her. Since she didn’t want to tell her, she wouldn’t ask.
Shen Qinglan followed Shen Junyu back to the compound, and went to Fu’s house first, there she learned that Mr. Fu had gone out to visit friends and was not at home, so Shen Qinglan went back to Shen’s house.
“Mom, where shall we go first?”
As soon as she reached the door, she heard Shen Xitong’s voice.
Shen Qinglan pushed open the door and entered, Chu Yunrong glanced at Shen Qinglan and said with a smile, “Why did Qinglan come back so soon?”
“Grandpa went out to visit friends and was not at home.” Shen Qinglan said lightly.
“Sister, I just asked mother to go out to buy New Year’s goods together, do you want to come with us?” Shen Xitong looked at Shen Qinglan with a smile, and seemed to be in a good mood.
Chu Yunrong said, “Yes, Qinglan, let’s go together. It’s already New Year’s Eve when Hengyi would be coming back, so it would be too late to buy again.”
Shen Qinglan thought for a while and nodded in agreement with Shen Xitong’s suggestion.
Following the two of them out, they moved to Chu Yunrong’s car, Shen Xitong took the lead to sit in the co-pilot’s seat, and Shen Qinglan sat in the back seat.
Along the way, Shen Xitong and Chu Yunrong chatted happily, and from time to time she could hear Chu Yunrong being amused by Shen Xitong.
Shen Xitong and Chu Yunrong did look more like mother and daughter than her and Chu Yunrong, Shen Qinglan thought lightly, but there was no wavering in her heart.
Shen Xitong was paying attention to Shen Qinglan’s expression all the time. Seeing that her expression hadn’t changed in any way from beginning to end, she couldn’t help being annoyed and bite her lips lightly with her teeth.
“By the way, mom, do you still remember the Leng Qingqiu I told you last time?” Shen Xitong suddenly spoke, deliberately emphasizing the word “Leng Qingqiu”.
“What’s the matter?”
“Last time you said you wanted to invite her to be a guest at our house. I told Qingqiu and she said she had time this weekend. Mom, do you think it’s alright this weekend?”
“Of course you can, but unfortunately your dad can’t come back yet.”
“It’s okay, I’ll invite Qingqiu to be a guest when Dad comes back later.”
“Sister, you’re coming back this weekend too, I will introduce you to her.” Shen Xitong turned his head and said to Shen Qinglan with a smile.
“Okay.” Shen Qinglan said lightly, Shen Xitong’s eyes flashed with surprise, but she smiled very gently.
“I believe you will hit it off right away.”
Shen Qinglan was non-committal. She also wanted to know how holy the person who was pretending to be her was, and what was the purpose of impersonating her.
When they arrived at the mall, Shen Qinglan saw Chu Yunrong’s fighting power for the first time. Besides buying, and swiping with a card, she obviously had many things at home, but she still bought a bunch of them.
“This is your grandfather’s, this is Mr. Fu’s, this is your grandparents and this is your aunt’s…” Chu Yunrong whispered while buying, Shen Xitong and Shen Qinglan both carried Chu Yunrong’s trophies in their hands.
Even Shen Qinglan, who was very physically strong, finally felt a little tired, and deeply felt that agreeing to go out with Chu Yunrong to buy New Year’s goods was a wrong decision.
What’s more, Shen Xitong, whose physical strength was average, was already too tired to walk.
Chu Yunrong looked at the shopping bags on the ground, feeling a little unsatisfied. If it wasn’t for Shen Xitong saying that she was hungry, they were afraid she would continue to buy.
The driver took their bags to the car and the three of them went to find a place to eat.
“Mom, there is a restaurant nearby that tastes very good. I ate there with my friends last time, why don’t we go there today.” Shen Xitong held Chu Yunrong’s arm in an intimate manner.
Shen Qinglan followed behind with a light expression.
“Qinglan, what do you think?” Chu Yunrong didn’t answer Shen Xitong, but turned to ask Shen Qinglan.
Chu Yunrong looked at her pale daughter, pursed her lips, and the light in her eyes dimmed.
This restaurant was nearby, and Chu Yunrong didn’t plan to drive over, so the three of them walked over directly.
The restaurant was on another street, so they turned a corner and crossed to the other street.
The three of them had just reached the middle of the road when a car suddenly rushed out of the corner and drove straight towards them.
“Qinglan, be careful.” Just as she was about to cross the road, Chu Yunrong’s terrified voice sounded in Shen Qinglan’s ears, and before she could react, she was pulled aside by a force.
Shen Qinglan only had time to see the person in the car widen her eyes in panic, and there was a harsh brake sound beside her ears.
“Qinglan, how are you? Where’s the injury?” Chu Yunrong pulled Shen Qinglan and looked her up and down with a look of panic.
Shen Qinglan didn’t answer Chu Yunrong’s words, but looked to the other side.
There, Shen Xitong had fallen to the ground, her face pale, and the car had stopped in front of Shen Xitong, only a fist away from her.
Chu Yunrong seemed to have reacted instinctively just now. In her panic, she only had time to pull Shen Qinglan away, but left Shen Xitong where she was. If the driver didn’t apply brake in time, then…
She hurried over, “Tongtong, what happened to you? Where did you get bumped?” She looked anxious.
Shen Xitong’s face was very pale, and there was still fear on her face. When she heard Chu Yunrong’s voice, her eyes seemed to regain some vigor. She slowly turned her head and focused on Chu Yunrong’s face. She slowly pulled the corners of her mouth slowly, she wanted to say that she was fine, but the pain in the palm of her hand made her speechless.
Only then did Chu Yunrong see that the palm of her hand had rubbed a large piece of skin on the ground because of the fall just now, and it was bleeding at the moment.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I didn’t see any injuries. I’ll take you to the hospital to have a look.” A young boy got out of the car with a look of panic and apology. It was the first time he drove by himself. And such a thing happened, it was fortunate that he didn’t hit anyone. If he did hit someone… He thought about it and was scared for a while.
Chu Yunrong helped Shen Xitong up from the ground. The young man wanted to reach out to help, but stopped when he saw Shen Xitong’s obviously expensive coat.
“That, are you all right?” The young man asked cautiously, of course he saw the wound on Shen Xitong’s hand, but he didn’t know if she was injured elsewhere.
“You said it was okay, how did you drive? You don’t know how to look at the road? Fortunately, you stopped. If you didn’t stop, today you would have killed three people.”
The young man didn’t speak, just lowered his head, and listened silently. This incident was his fault, and he could not say anything.
Shen Qinglan looked at his hands. His hands were rough, and there were even thick calluses on them. This car was just an ordinary truck. It was an accident.
“I… I’ll take you to the hospital. I’ll take this young lady to bandage it, and then do a specific examination. I’ll pay for all the expenses.” After Chu Yunrong finished speaking, the young man said.
“No need, we’ll just go to the hospital by ourselves, let’s go.” Before Chu Yunrong spoke, Shen Qinglan spoke first, looking at this young man’s outfit, she knew he definitely did not have much money, and it was an accident. The young man’s attitude of admitting mistakes was also very good. This amount of money was nothing to them, but for this young man, she was afraid it would be a lot of expenses.
Chu Yunrong glanced at Shen Qinglan disapprovingly, but didn’t say anything. Instead, the young man took a piece of paper and a pen from the car, hurriedly wrote down a series of numbers, and handed it to Shen Qinglan, “This is my number, if you have any questions after you go to the hospital for examination, you can contact me, and you can also tell me about the medical expenses, and I will pay.”
Shen Qinglan took the piece of paper. She didn’t know what the piece of paper was used for. There were still some oil stains on it. “Okay.”
The young man apologized again, and then drove away. Chu Yunrong said, “Qinglan, how can you let him go? He hit your sister with his car.”
