Title: 谁把谁当真 (Winner Takes All)
Translator: 月野 見事 (TsukinoMigoto)
Protagonists ：黎朔 (LiShuo), 赵锦辛 (ZhaoJinXin)
Li Shuo felt uncomfortable in his heart. How could Zhao Jinxin be bold and behave in front of him as if nothing had happened?
Everything seemed to be back to when they first broke up. But at that time, although he realized that Zhao Jinxin was too agressive and wanted to cut off the water and stop the loss in time, he was still full of love and desire for Zhao Jinxin. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be fooled back by a ‘confession’ by him. But this time it was different. He completely saw this person for who he really is and had completely lost all of his expectations. All he needed was time to forget him.
Li Shuo settled his mind and his voice fell low: “Don’t talk about these useless things. What do you want to do with the land? If you really want to do this, I will withdraw and give way to you.”
Zhao Jinxin’s breath sounds a little unstable: “You want to avoid me that way?”
“Yes.” Li Shuo said without hesitation, “but it’s not to ‘avoid’ you. I just don’t want to have any contact with you anymore. Do I need to repeat this sentence for the ten thousandth of times? You pester me like this and affect my normalcy with my work, life, and friends make me very bored.”
There was a moment of silence on the other end of the phone and Zhao Jinxin’s voice turned to be a little cold: “I know that I’ve wronged you. I want to correct everything between us. You really can’t even give me a chance.”
Li Shuo closed his eyes, paused, and said firmly, “I won’t.”
Zhao Jinxin took a deep breath and smiled reluctantly: “You’re so ruthless. It doesn’t matter, I have patience with you. Uncle Li, I don’t want you to be with others in your life. I will make you fall in love with me again. ”
“You can try.” Li Shuo said coldly, “But I will definitely run into a person who will give himself wholeheartedly to me. Someone who is loyal and not full of lies. This person fits me best and you can’t do anything about it.”
“I can.” Zhao Jinxin’s gentle voice was mixed with coldness, “I will do everything in my power to have you. So, Uncle Li, don’t be too ruthless to me. I want to spoil you forever and don’t want to hurt you.”
“Are you threatening me?” Li Shuo burst into anger which was apparent in his eyes.
“I don’t dare.” Zhao Jinxin chuckled, “I just like you so much. I don’t want to see someone grab you away from me.”
Li Shuo was so angry that he clenched his fists tightly: “Zhao Jinxin, you are a rascal.”
“Well, I am.”
“…you fucking bastard!” Li Shuo hung up angrily.
Li Shuo confirmed that it was Zhao Jinxin who was playing tricks and communicated the matter with Zhou Jinxing. They were afraid to tell President Cui for the time being, because President Cui and Zhao Rongtian had been in friendship for many years and had business contacts together so they would definitely stand on Zhao Jinxin’s side.
The two sat down and discussed about it. At the end, letting Zhao Jinxin invest in the shares is the best solution. After all, not only will they not lose anything, Ennan’s capital injection will also bring many favorable conditions. Li Shuo could see that Zhou Jinxing did not want to fight Zhao Jinxin for this matter because it was completely unnecessary. Only he alone was mixed with personal feelings to consider. In business, Zhou Jinxing has no obligation to delay for his personal grievances. For business opportunities, he will naturally take care of the overall situation.
Zhou Jinxing personally went to talk with Zhao Jinxin about the shares while Li Shuo seriously considered withdrawing from the project. But he quickly rejected the idea. He also devoted a lot of time, money and energy to this project. Why should he give up because of Zhao Jinxin? Originally, he didn’t intend to participate in the operation. He had prepared the early stage, so he would take a dividend in the future, and he didn’t need to have too much contact with Zhao Jinxin.
At this point, although Li Shuo has accepted the reality, he also felt an unparalleled aggrieved. The kind of helplessness and powerlessness facing Zhao Jinxin made him frustrated. The more he tried to draw a line, the more entangled the status quo become. It also bore him completely.
If the so-called ‘really liking him’ is to let him experience all this, then he would rather never know Zhao Jinxin in the first place.
At this time, Cheng Sheng returned to the country for a business trip and he asked Li Shuo to take him out to play. Li Shuo was tired of noisy and sensual occasions, but he was not good at rejecting friends. Secondly, if he could go out to relax, it’s good for himself. Maybe he can’t fall in love for the time being, but he has no reason to give up sex for Zhao Jinxin.
Cheng Sheng always loves to play, but unlike Zhao Jinxin, he will seriously associate with the one he likes, never limit his feelings, and let everything go with the flow. Now, he is also in the empty window period. Naturally, he is full of vigor to look for ‘sex’.
Li Shuo took him to a bar he frequented. He knows the owner and the bartender of the bar. The atmosphere is good, not so messy, and the quality of the staff is generally higher. The boss once told him that anyone he takes away from here will be immediately famous in the circle. Unfortunately, he prefers a fixed bed partner and rarely plays with random people.
Cheng Sheng looked around while drinking, “Yes, the quality here is really good.”
“Don’t you like blondes and blue eyes? Why are you suddenly interested in Chinese type.” Li Shuo asked nonchalantly.
Cheng Sheng smiled and said, “You don’t know how what it’s like if you live in the countryside. Besides, changing your taste can adjust your life. As long as they look good, I like it.”
“Which one do you like?” Li Shuo tried hard to squeeze out a sense of participation, but the fact is that when he looked at a room filled with many beautiful people and delicious delicacies for him to bite, he was still not interested. The more he felt that way, the more he wanted to take one person away to prove something to himself.
“A few here are good.” Cheng Sheng asked, “How do you distinguish between those who sell themselves and those who wanted one-night-stand in China?”
“I normally ask them. But I usually give some pocket money to those who are very young.” Li Shuo sighed, “It doesn’t matter. The most important thing is what’s in front of your eyes.”
“That’s right.” Cheng Sheng stood up, holding a wine glass, and walked towards a boy who had been staring at him for a long time.
Li Shuo looked at Cheng Sheng’s straight back, and he could imagine the confidence and romance on his face, and he was a little envious. He missed his calmness in the past. What Zhao Jinxin had done to him the worst is to make him lose himself for a while.
He will find them back one by one.
At this moment, a boy sat down beside him. Li Shuo turned his head to see that he was someone he knew. This boy is a regular here. His name is Arrow, a celebrity in the Beijing gay circle. He looks really good. It is said that he is also doing a good job and have not caused trouble. His main ‘job’ is as an escort. He had try to hook up with Li Shuo a few times in the past but unfortunately, Li Shuo was never interested in him so he never responded.
“Brother, you haven’t been here for a long time.” Arrow leaned over and said coquettishly, “As soon as you come, the average face value in the store has been linearly improved.”
Li Shuo smiled: “With you there, it doesn’t need me to improve.”
“Hahaha, I am just a basic equation but you are an added value.” Arrow took the initiative to touch Li Shuo’s cup, “Brother, come here more often.”
“Sure.” Li Shuo took a sip of wine.
“Brother.” Arrow said coquettishly, “Are you just spending time with friends today? Are you not lonely?”
“I’m good.” Li Shuo smiled faintly.
“But I’m lonely, it’s so cold these days. There’s no one to warm the bed.” Arrow blinked his eyes and took the initiative to link his hands into Li Shuo’s arm, “Brother, you have rejected my sincerity three times already. Come on, don’t you wanna think about it? I won’t charge you. Otherwise, it’s very shameless of me.”
Li Shuo smiled: “Are you still pulling the top off?”
“Of course, I often hang around here, who doesn’t want to sleep with you?” Arrow came over, bit Li Shuo’s ear ambiguously, and sighed, “I will accompany you for whatever you want to play. You can even fuck me in the toilet.”
Li Shuo rarely encounters such a show. Maybe he is too serious, and most people will become restraint in front of him. He suddenly feels quite excited, at least for now, he needs a little stimulation. He hugged Arrow’s waist, squeezed it lightly, and whispered, “You can pick a place.”
Arrow kissed him on his cheek excitedly: “No hurry, let’s drink some wine first.”
“Okay.” Li Shuo knew that he had a commission on buying wine, so he didn’t object.
“Brother, what do you want to drink?”
“I’ll drink whatever you order.”
Arrow happily ordered two bottles of very expensive foreign wine, and then gently shook Li Shuo’s arm: “Brother, do you have any requirements? My house is near me. I can ask friends to bring some clothes or something.”
Li Shuo shook his head: “No, you are fine as it is.” He sipped his wine again while his head is in a daze.
Arrow put his chin on Li Shuo’s shoulder, blew on his face, and said with a smile: “I promise you will be addicted to me.”
At this time, a group of waiters came up with wine. That’s right, it was a group, one person holding two bottles of wine. They lined up to put wine on the table in front of them.
Li Shuo raised his eyebrows, thinking that this kid wouldn’t be so improper. These wines are all the top wines in the store, and one million can’t be spent on them.
Arrow realized it too and quickly said: “You got it wrong, I only ordered two bottles.” He explained to Li Shuo, “Brother, they got it wrong, I didn’t order so much.”
“Yes, I was the one who ordered it.” A dark voice came from behind them.
Li Shuo’s body stiffened, and his face changed. He looked back and saw Zhao Jinxin appeared out of nowhere behind them.
Arrow was also dumbfounded. First, he was amazed looking at Zhao Jinxin’s face but then, he became afraid of the hostility on that face.
The entire bar was startled by this battle and they looked sideways to watch.
Zhao Jinxin walked over slowly, even if he walked in such a noisy environment, he still walked gracefully, without losing the demeanor of someone from a noble background, but what he did was shocking. He sat down beside Arrow, trapping Arrow between himself and Li Shuo.
Arrow was so frightened that he bent his back uncontrollably.
Li Shuo gave Zhao Jinxin a cold look and got up, deciding to leave.
“Sit down.” Zhao Jinxin smiled lightly, but couldn’t hold his mouth, “If you go, someone will be unlucky.”
Li Shuo narrowed his eyes: “What do you want to do?”
Zhao Jinxin pointed to a table of wine and said with a smile to Arrow: “You drink all that I have ordered no matter how much it is. Finish them all. I will pay you for all that you have drink. All of these drinks are enough to earn you a year of living expenses, no?”
Arrow’s face changed, and he waved his hands again and again: “I can’t drink, I can’t drink.”
“Why can’t you drink them? It’s too unprofessional of you.” Zhao Jinxin picked up a bottle of wine and stuffed it into Arrow’s hand, “Come on.”
Li Shuo said angrily: “Zhao Jinxin, don’t bully people too much!”
“How do I bully him?” Zhao Jinxin said innocently, “He kissed and hugged my man and also persuaded him to drink. I just fined him with a few sips. Am I not a gentleman?”
Li Shuo snatched the wine in Arrow’s hand: “Arrow, let’s go.”
Arrow wanted to stand up, but Zhao Jinxin pressed his shoulders, forced him back to the sofa, picked up another bottle, stretched it to his mouth, and said coldly, “Drink!”
Arrow was trembling as he took the wine. He glanced at Li Shuo pleadingly.
Li Shuo felt guilty. He once again grabbed the wine from Arrow’s hand and delivered it to his own mouth without hesitation. He poured it in half a bottle like drinking plain water.
Zhao Jinxin looked at Li Shuo without blinking with a gloomy expression.
Li Shuo wiped his mouth and then, the bottle of Romanee-Conti which worth more than one hundred thousand was smashed directly on the ground by him. He gritted his teeth and said: “Zhao Jinxin, do you fucking had enough?”
“No, I want to see him finish the wine today.” Zhao Jinxin’s hand has pinched the back of Arrow’s thin neck somehow and his voice sounded dangerous like a poisonous snake, “Drink.” He restrained himself from using too much force. Otherwise, he already wanted to break the slender neck when he saw the two huddled together.
The owner of the bar came over to make a round: “Boss, if there is any misunderstanding, can we discuss about it?”
Zhao Jinxin smiled at him: “There is no misunderstanding, Li Shuo is my man. Whoever dares to touch him is unlucky.”
Li Shuo couldn’t bear it, so he stood up, grabbed Zhao Jinxin by the collar, and pulled the person up from the sofa. He glared at Zhao Jinxin: “Get out.”
There is a casual smile on Zhao Jinxin’s face: “Well, unless you go with me.”
Li Shuo roughly pulled Zhao Jinxin out of the deck, and then strode towards the outside of the bar.
