FERWP Chapter 20

It shouldn't be so coincidental, right?

Translator: Prakriti Bhatta


The young man in the white shirt came back in a hurry. He should have been called back by the driver.

At that time, because of the movement just now, a lot of people watching the excitement had already flooded into the garage. There were patients, nurses, and family members. A group of people was surrounding the car.

After the young man came back, he glanced at the smashed car and focused his attention on his driver.

The driver was injured and his forehead seemed to be bleeding.

When the people next to them saw this, they also said something to the driver and the young man.

Not long after, the old man who came by the same car also came back.

Seeing this scene, the old man was very angry. It was unknown what he had said but his actions showed that he was extremely angry.

After that, the two hurriedly took the driver to the hospital to bandage, and then the police intervened.

The video ends here.

Li Quyin’s throat slipped. The sound of swallowing his own mucus was like the sound of thunder, which shocked him.

He replayed the video with wide-eyed eyes and looked at the screen vigorously, trying to capture the young man’s face.

But what he watched was surveillance video, not a documentary made specifically. So the picture was very blurry, and he couldn’t see the face at all.

In addition, after the car was smashed, when the young man came back, he was surrounded by people. Many people had blocked him, so he couldn’t see clearly.

After watching it twice, Li Quyin looked at the assistant next to him after still not being able to see the face clearly, “Is there the same video clearer than this one?”

The assistant leaned over to take a look. He saw that it was surveillance, and immediately shook his head, “Boss, this is a surveillance video. You can’t ask too much. Not every video is like a movie…”

Li Quyin was anxious, only staring at him coldly.

The little assistant stared back blankly. He quickly made up, “It might be clearer if you zoom in on the computer, but the video quality is already like this…”

The assistant looked at Li Quyin inexplicably, wondering who had provoked Li Quyin now?

“Then do you have a computer?” Li Quyin asked.

“Not now.” The assistant shook his head.

Li Quyin took a deep breath, trying to calm himself down.

But no matter how hard he tried, he was still thinking about the young man in a white shirt and black suit and shorts in his mind.

The unique and deserted temperament that Xia Xixi carries on his body is really too special and very recognizable. Even if it is imitated, ordinary people can’t imitate it…

“Drive faster.” Li Quyin patted the back of the driver’s seat.

“Okay.” The driver stepped on the accelerator.

The car speeded up a lot, but it was still slow for Li Quyin.

It’s just around six o’clock in the evening and they were riding on the road in the center of the city. You can imagine how jammed the road was.

Li Quyin opened the window of the car and looked outside. He couldn’t sit still more and more when he saw the grand jam in front and back of the car.

If it wasn’t because he was still far from home, he would even want to get out of the car and walk home, so maybe he could hurry up.

“By the way, boss, there is one more thing I forgot to tell you.” The assistant took out his mobile phone reading Li Quyin’s schedule again.

He rummaged in it for a while and after a while, he said: “The company just told me that they have found an expert who is willing to help with the film. That expert has done several programs on cultural relics.”

Li Quyin was restless, “Oh.”

The assistant hesitated, “It’s just that the program’s ratings were not very good. It seemed to have been cut out before it was even broadcasted. Besides, aside from wanting to get paid, he also hopes that you can help promote his show…”

   Li Quyin’s next new film is for the international awards. The experts to be invited must be the best.

If it was before, their company would definitely look down on this kind of half-heartedness. The problem is that now no one wants to help, and they can only adjust to it

Listening to the assistant’s words, Li Quyin’s frowning brows suddenly frowned tighter. He opened his mouth and wanted to refuse, but he swallowed again.

“Understood.”

“Then when do you plan to meet?” The assistant breathed a sigh of relief. He was afraid that Li Quyin would disagree.

He knew a little bit about the situation of his company colleagues. Since they were boycotted, it has become very difficult to hire people.

Miao Mingyi was still in a hurry. If he couldn’t find anyone, they would all have to wrap up and leave.

“I’ll talk about it later.” Li Quyin was not in the mood to care about this at all.

“Why is it so slow?” Li Quyin looked forward. It took so long for them to ride through a street.

“It’s the peak time and there are so many traffic lights on this road…” the driver explained.

Li Quyin laid back. Leaning on the back of the chair, he raised his hand and pinched the bridge of his nose.

Two minutes later, he opened his eyes again and looked sideways at the assistant.

His assistant has been following him for a while. Although sometimes he is stupid, at least he won’t backstab him.

The assistant was uncomfortable with him. He looked with a question mark on his face.

“Do you know how to act?” Li Quyin asked.

Hearing that, the assistant’s eyes lit up immediately. Li Quyin finally found out that he had a talent for acting?

“Forget it, it will be…” Li Quyin exhaled.

The assistant burst into tears for a moment, “Boss?”

What do you mean by ”forget it”, what do you mean by ”it will be”?

“At the end of next month, you and Xiao Gao, you two make time for that day.” Li Quyin said.

Xiao Gao was the driver of the car.

Strictly speaking, Xiao Gao was not a member of the company, but a member of the Shen family. Li Quyin naturally trusted him.

“What will we have to do?” The assistant was puzzled. Li Quyin was really mysterious.

Li Quyin roughly explained, “I have a friend who will have his birthday in those few days. At that time, you will pretend to be my friend and come with me.”

“Don’t worry, it’s okay, you just need to cooperate with me to have a meal, and then find an excuse to leave.” Li Quyin had already planned it.

According to Li Quyin’s original plan, on Xia Xixi’s birthday, he and Xia Xixi will of course spend their time alone.

However, Xia Xixi suddenly proposed to take a friend, so Li Quyin could only agree.

As for Shangque, Li Quyin certainly couldn’t take him there.

If he really took Shang Que, it would be over.

According to Shang Que’s character, if he doesn’t cause some trouble to him, then he won’t be called Shang Que!

The assistant and Xiao Gao looked at each other in the rearview mirror and felt a little complicated for a while. Even Li Quyin has to ask others to pretend to be his friends?

“Boss, don’t you have any friends?” The assistant looked at him sympathetically.

In Li Quyin’s eyes, in addition to acting, there was still acting only. In private, he was either busy rushing to the scene or busy memorizing the script. It seemed that he did not have any friends.

And he hadn’t just received the name ”dead face”  for nothing. He received it because he always puts a cold face and offends countless people.

Thinking of this, the two of them felt more distressed and sympathized with Li Quyin.

Li Quyin was too lazy to pay attention to what the two people were thinking about. He continued: “Remember, I will be Li Quyin by then. I will be the brother of Shen Bailou and the unloved son of the Shen family. Don’t expose anything.”

“What???” The assistant was dumbfounded.

The driver who was driving also looked in the rearview mirror, his eyes were also full of surprise.

Who the hell had provoked this Li Quyin?

“Boss, are you… okay?”

Li Quyin was not in the mood to explain. He glanced at the traffic ahead and urged: “Drive faster.”

Li Quyin never knew that traffic jams during peak hours were so difficult. Although it was also half an hour, today he seems to have been blocked for 10,000 years.

When he got out of the car, it was completely dark.

After finally getting home, Li Quyin immediately drove away his assistants.

When he got out of the car, he ran away quickly.

Back home, he went into the house and turned on the computer.

Li Quyin sat in front of the computer and looked at the e-mail in front of him. Suddenly, he was full of anxiety but he didn’t dare to open it.

He had asked Xia Xixi what his job was before, and Xia Xixi had told him at that time that he was writing a report.

At that time, he didn’t think too much, just felt it was against the peace.

Because he couldn’t imagine that people like Xia Xixi would sit in front of a computer every day and write reports.

Now thinking about it, if Xia Xixi is really that cultural relic appraisal expert and writes an appraisal report on cultural relics, then everything seems to fit together at once.

Xia Xixi is the kind of person who makes people think that he should be in this line by nature.

Moreover, both of them are surnamed Xia.

Earlier, when he and Xia Xixi had gone to the villa to play around, he had quarreled with that mentally ill expert Xia. Xia Xixi had also said that he had encountered an annoying person.

Xia Xixi hated Shen Bailou too much. The expert surnamed Xia targeted him somehow and was unwilling to take the film starring Shen Bailou…

He told Xia Xixi that Shen Bailou had a boyfriend and the expert surnamed Xia knew that he had a boyfriend.

No one knew about this except him and Xia Xixi.

He felt strange at the time but didn’t think much, because he was thinking about Xia Xixi at that time.

Xia Xixi is his boyfriend and he couldn’t deny the existence of Xia Xixi.

Thinking of these things, Li Quyin’s scalp was numb for a while.

He didn’t think much about it at that time, but thinking about it now, even if he had thought about it a little bit more, he would have noticed something wrong.

Li Quyin sat upright and held the mouse with his hand.

He lifted his finger but failed to press it down.

Reminiscing about Xia Xixi’s disliked expression at that time, the extremely disgusting attitude of the other party in the email, and the scene of a quarrel between him and the person surnamed Xia on Weibo, Li Quyin only felt stomach pain.

It shouldn’t be so coincidental, right?

If this is the case, then…

Li Quyin didn’t know how to face it for a while.

Li Quyin looked at the mail in front of him, hoping that all this was just his illusion.

But the vague figure was clearly engraved in his mind, clamoring for him not to deceive himself again.

After hesitating for a long time, Li Quyin finally gritted his teeth and clicked on the video again on the computer.

He has watched this video many times in the car and is very familiar with it, so he accurately pulled the progress bar to the end of the car.

In the enlarged video, the old man gets out of the car first, and then the young man.

Li Quyin stared straight at the car door with both eyes.

The door opened, and the man got out of the car, first with his right foot, and then he leaned out of the car and stood up.

Well-proportioned slender figure, familiar dress, slightly curly black hair, slightly fairer skin than others…
