Chapter 05 The Real and Fake Young Master
Housekeeper Chen saw Xu Xizhou get out of the car and get into a taxi. He couldn’t help but wonder whether the young master had succeeded as the conversation ended so quickly.
He sat in the driver’s seat and looked at the expression of the man in the back seat from the rearview mirror. Zhuang Jingchun’s brows stretched out as if he had solved a perplexing matter that troubled him. However, less than a moment later, that handsome eyebrows wrinkled slightly again.
“Housekeeper Chen, please help me with something.”
Hearing Zhuang Jingchun’s whispered instructions, Housekeeper Chen’s expression became more and more shocked.
Wouldn’t this be too out of line? If the Master and Madam know about it …
Zhuang Jingchun seemed to see what he was thinking, and the corners of his mouth curled slightly, “As long as you do it without anyone noticing, no one will know.”
Housekeeper Chen hummed a little anxiously. This task was not difficult, but the young master has always been indifferent. After watching in the car for so long, there wasn’t the slightest ripple of expression on his face. Why did he suddenly put his hand in the matter again now?
“By the way, tell Auntie to clean up the guest room on the second floor when you go back.”
“Yes, Young Master.”
Could it be that the child is going to stay in the Zhung family’s house now?
That night, after Xu Xizhou went to a nearby clinic to treat the wounds on his body, he casually found a hotel to stay in.
He fooled Yuan Mu on the pretext that the club organized a business trip and he couldn’t go home for a week. When he woke up the next day and looked at the marriage contract agreement on the table, he still felt that it was unreal.
Zhuang Jingchun’s brain must have short-circuited to find him, and he must have also been crazy to agree to such an absurd request.
Back at the club, Meng Hui was taken aback when he saw the injury on his face, and Xu Xizhou couldn’t hide it from him, so he honestly told him the whole story.
“You don’t have to come for a few days, take a good rest at home.”
His appearance was really not suitable to show up in front of those little kids. More importantly, if he were to be seen by the little kids’ parents and they file a complaint about him because of some misunderstanding, he might not even be able to keep the position of coach.
As he left the club and was hesitating about where to go next, his phone suddenly rang.
It was a call from Xu Mei.
“Xiaozhou, I know about what happened last night. Officer Liang of the Dongcheng Police Station explained the whole story to us. Your father came without knowing the story and scolded you when he shouldn’t have. How are your injuries? Mom will go to see you, okay?”
Xu Xizhou didn’t expect that the police officer would call Lu Feng to explain the situation. That’s right, after all, Lu Feng and his wife were still his guardians. He has just become an adult. In their eyes, he was still considered a child, and his parents have to be informed about everything.
Listening to Xu Mei’s words, Xu Xizhou couldn’t tell what he felt in his heart. Words can be the most poisonous sword, piercing a person’s heart with blood. The damage has already been done, he couldn’t pretend to feel that there was nothing even if he ignored them. He was also tired of the couple playing good cop and bad cop.
“No need, I was really impulsive about what happened last night. My injuries are not serious, they will be fine in two days.”
Xu Mei wanted to say something else, but Xu Xizhou took a deep breath and hung up decisively.
He turned off the phone and put it in his pocket. He put on a cap and was about to walk to the bus stop when a dark gray Porsche stopped in front of him.
He was slightly taken aback when he saw the person walking out of the car.
Lu Rong was wearing an haute couture cashmere coat, and all of his hair was combed back, revealing a smooth forehead and handsome facial features. His temperament has almost changed drastically compared to half a month ago.
“Can I talk to you?”
Lu Rong smiled at him modestly and gently.
Half an hour later, in the coffee shop on the corner.
Lu Rong held the full English menu with a look of embarrassment on his face. When he was hesitating to ask Xu Xizhou, the latter happened to whisper fluent English to the waiter.
Lu Rong felt relieved, and quickly said, “I’ll have the same one like him, thank you.”
Xu Xizhou raised his eyebrows, “Are you sure?”
Anyway, there wouldn’t be any mistake in ordering coffee. Lu Rong thought so, but when the cup he ordered arrived, he regretted it as soon as he tasted it.
How can there be such a bitter coffee in the world!
“What I ordered is black coffee of the highest concentration, which not many people are used to drinking.” The schadenfreude in Xu Xizhou’s eyes wasn’t restrained at all.
Lu Rong smiled awkwardly, he put down the cup in his hand while resisting the stomach cramps.
Xu Xizhou had enough to play the vicious male supporting role, so he leaned lazily on the seat and looked at Lu Rong with his black eyes.
“Tell me, what business do you have with me?”
Lu Rong sat up straight, holding the silver spoon in the mug in one hand, looking a little hesitant, “Are … Are you really not going back to Lu’s house?”
“I’m not going back to Lu’s house, shouldn’t you be happy?” Xu Xizhou didn’t bother to pretend to him, and bluntly said.
A trace of embarrassment flashed across Lu Rong’s face, and he said with some uneasiness, “I never thought so. You have been in the Lu family for 18 years. Even if it’s not your real family, it is not different from your own family. Moreover, these nights I often see Xu … Mom goes to your room.”
Xu Xizhou sneered softly, “Are you talking about the room that you have occupied?”
Lu Rong’s face became even more embarrassed, “I didn’t know it was your original room before. I told my parents that I moved to the guest bedroom. That’s still your bedroom.”
Xu Xizhou looked at Lu Rong’s face carefully. In the previous life, onlookers always guessed that the two of them, this real and fake young master, would fight and scheme against each other. In fact, most of the time he deliberately provoked Lu Rong, just to attract the attention of his adoptive parents.
Like him, Lu Rong was also a chess piece played by fate. It’s just that he was not as lucky as Lu Rong who was the protagonist of the story. In this book, he was just vicious cannon fodder to set off the protagonist’s positive qualities.
As a vicious cannon fodder, he just wanted to leave the field early and stay away from all the disputes.
“I know that when I say these things, you may think I am hypocritical, but you are really different from what I think. Before I came to Lu’s house, I was actually very scared and didn’t know how to get along with you, but the last time I saw you, I found out that you are actually a very nice person. Later, I accidentally went to the storage room and saw that the cupboard was full of trophies. I just found out that you are very excellent …”
“Stop, stop, stop.” Xu Xizhou clutched his chest and made an extremely uncomfortable expression, “I’ll vomit if you continue, really.”
Lu Rong really closed his mouth tightly, lowered his eyes, and showed an injured expression on his face.
With such a pitiful appearance, it was no wonder that his good friend in his previous life would be hopelessly in love with Lu Rong.
“Young Master Lu, I’m really not interested in acting with you in any kind of brotherly drama with you. You don’t have to come to me and work in vain. I’m fine by myself. Please spare me, okay?”
Xu Xizhou stood up neatly, asked the waiter to come to checkout, paid for his cup of coffee, and then turned around to leave the cafe.
Lu Rong looked at his departing back, his gentle and handsome eyebrows gradually became gloomy. He suddenly grabbed the cup and drank the cold black coffee in one gulp like a masochist.
After resting in the small hotel for a few days, the wounds on Xu Xizhou’s face were almost healed, and he was finally in a proper state to meet people.
He went back to the club to report in for work, when he was having lunch in the cafeteria, he suddenly received a text message from an unfamiliar number.
There was also a short video attached to the text message. He opened it and took a glance, he laughed so hard that he almost spit out his meal.
“What are you looking at that makes you laugh so happily?” Lili looked curiously at him.
“Hm … It’s just a silly video that will contaminate your eyes, you better not watch it.”
Xu Xizhou held back his laughter and finished his meal quickly. He went to the cubicle of the training room and watched the video again.
The video was taken at night. The light was dim and the camera was shaking, obviously, this video was taken secretly. There was a figure covered in a sack on the ground, screaming piercingly.
“You dare to piss me off! Wait for me, when I catch who did this, I will—Aaah!”
This Zhuang Jingchun really had the means to find someone to beat Zhang Yan unknowingly so quickly.
Before he finished laughing, he received another message on his phone from a different number.
[Remember to delete it after you’re done watching, don’t leave any evidence.]
[How did you do it? Can you tell me the details?]
The other party did not answer his question, but asked, [Are your wounds healed?]
How could it be possible for Zhuang Jingchun to care about him? There must be something wrong with this.
[It’s almost better, anyway, I can meet people.]
[Housekeeper Chen will pick you up in the afternoon.]
[Why are you picking me up?]
Zhuang Jingchun didn’t reply, probably because he was busy with work. Xu Xizhou was in a good mood at the moment, so he didn’t pay any attention to it and left the cubicle with a smile.
When it was time to get off work, Housekeeper Chen really came, but this time he drove a Maybach, which was a little too high-profile.
Xu Xizhou watched the car drive toward the city center and became somewhat puzzled, how could he remember that the Zhuang family didn’t seem to live in this area?
When the black Maybach stopped in front of a luxury men’s clothing store, he couldn’t sit still anymore.
“Uncle Chen, can you tell me what your young master is going to do?”
Housekeeper Chen turned his head, a little surprised.
“Didn’t the young master tell you? Madam will come tonight, she wants to see you.”
WHAT THE FUCK!Originally in English
Xu Xizhou was completely dumbstruck.
