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 saw madness and despair in Zhao Jinxin’s eyes, and he would never have thought that Zhao Jinxin could do such a thing. Perhaps deep in his heart, what he wanted to remember the most was the big boy who would behave in front of him.
What he is facing instead is the man who made him feel terrified.
Zhao Jinxin’s arms holding Li Shuo were also shaking.
He will never forget the mocking tone of Zhou Jinxing when he said that sentence. It seemed that no matter what he did, how hard he tried to please and approach him, Li Shuo was getting farther and farther away from him, even cooperating with an outsider to fool him fiercely.
When he was so excited that he had a reason to approach Li Shuo again, he could not sleep all night, and was hoping to give Li Shuo various surprises in the project planning. But at the same time, Li Shuo was discussing with Zhou Jinxing how to severe his relationship with him.
It is not a surprise that when he heard the news from Zhou Jinxing, he feels like he wanted to kill someone.
Whether if he becomes a bastard or a beast, at least if he does this, Li Shuo will definitely return to him. There is nothing worse than losing this person.
Li Shuo changed his breath deeply, his voice was so low that there was no emotion, but he was very calm: “Zhao Jinxin, you keep saying that you like me, but you dare to use my father to threaten me, aren’t you pushing me further and further?”
“If I don’t do this, won’t you go far from me anyway?” Zhao Jinxin gently stroke Li Shuo’s hair with one hand, and rubbed the blood oozing out of the corner of his mouth with the other.
“Who caused this? Me?” Li Shuo said coldly, “Is it because I did something wrong and needs your revenge?”
“You are not wrong, I was wrong, I did a lot of wrong things, but I want a chance to fix them…” Zhao Jinxin kissed Li Shuo’s cheek affectionately, “I will not give you to anyone. Never. Impossible.”
Li Shuo had the illusion of being kissed by a poisonous snake. He trembled all over: “Do you really think that this method can threaten me? I can also send Zhao Rongtian to prison!”
Zhao Jinxin didn’t care: “Oh, would you?” His kisses lingered on Li Shuo’s cheeks, earlobes, and hairline. His movements were gentle, as if he infinitely cherished the man.
Li Shuo’s gaze crossed Zhao Jinxin’s shoulders and stared blankly ahead. Although the huge anger had filled his whole body, his only thought at this time was not to vent his anger, but to calm Zhao Jinxin down. Zhao Jinxin’s emotions were obviously overwhelming at the moment. He dared not irritate him.
He didn’t want to speculate at all. If he refused, would Zhao Jinxin really do anything frantic, because even if Zhao Jinxin just let out a little rumor, his father’s heart that had just recovered might collapse again. How dare he take his dad’s body as a joke?
Zhao Jinxin had seen him and his dad since a long time ago. It is impossible for him to fight the Zhao family for his own sake? It is completely meaningless. Therefore, Zhao Jinxin dared to intimidate him like this. It was vicious and crazy.
Li Shuo said coldly: “I need time to think about it.”
Zhao Jinxin said without hesitation: “You don’t have time to think about it. I want you to agree now, and you can only agree.” Of course, he knows that there are many loopholes in this trick. Li Shuo is so smart that he won’t give Li Shuo took time to consider how to deal with him.
Li Shuo took a deep breath, gritted his teeth and said: “Zhao Jinxin, you will regret it, you are harming others and yourself!”
Zhao Jinxin looked at him directly and said confidently: “I won’t regret it.”
“Okay, you remember what you said today.” Li Shuo’s eyes were extremely cold. “One year, I only give you one year. After one year, if you haven’t played enough, we will end it all. If you use this to threaten me again, I will definitely not be able to spare you.” He needs time to get his dad out of this matter. Whether there is Zhao Jinxin or not, what his dad did is indeed risky.
Zhao Jinxin spoke uncomfortably: “I’m not playing around. I said it earlier, I’m serious, I will treat you well for the rest of my life.”
“I’m not that free. One year is my bottom line.” Li Shuo said, “Zhao Jinxin, don’t push people too much.”
Zhao Jinxin met Li Shuo’s hostile gaze, and his heart hurt like being cut with a knife. He smiled bitterly: “Okay, one year.” One year. He will ensure that Li Shuo will never be separated from him.
Li Shuo pushed him away and picked up the accidentally scattered documents from the ground.
Zhao Jinxin stretched out his hand.
Li Shuo hesitated for a moment, but nonetheless returned all the documents. He had already memorized a lot of information, but if there is no evidence, it would not pose any threat to the Zhao family, so he has to find another way.
Zhao Jinxin carefully collected the documents and said calmly: “You moved to my house, or should I move to yours?”
Li Shuo narrowed his eyes.
“Let me move here.” Zhao Jinxin looked around, “I miss it very much.” He had enjoyed the best love in the world in this apartment, but he messed it all up.
Li Shuo said clearly and firmly: “No one will move to another place. You live in your house and I live in my house.”
Zhao Jinxin licked the tingling corners of his mouth and the blood in his mouth tasted more intense than before. He stepped back a few steps, “Well, I will come to you tomorrow.” After saying that, he hurriedly opened the door and left.
Li Shuo froze for a few seconds before suddenly shouted and swept the contents on the coffee table to the ground. The teapot was smashed to pieces. The fragments mixed with water stains spilled all over the floor and his chaotic eyes stared at the mess.
“Zhao. Jin. Xin.” Li Shuo’s eyes were red. He gritted his teeth while chewing on these three words. While feeling extremely angry, he also tasted a huge, unspeakable pain in his chest.
The more beautiful it used to be, the more hateful it was after its’ decline.
They can’t go back anymore. No one can go back to the way it was before anymore.
Zhao Jinxin, you will regret it.
Li Shuo wanted to fly home immediately and talk to his father, but he decided to calm down and think about it. Zhao Jinxin knew his whereabouts even when he went to a bar. His every move might be ‘monitored’ and if he now rashly talk about it with his dad, his father will be scared too. No. He still has to find the right time.
He locked himself in the room and thought for a day. He had a preliminary plan in his mind. It was very difficult and risky to implement, but he couldn’t just wait and let it be.
The next day, Li Shuo made an appointment with Cheng Sheng for dinner.
Cheng Sheng and his boss fight to return to China after the Chinese New Year. This kid is obviously having a good time in China and it was like he doesn’t want to leave.
Li Shuo asked Cheng Sheng about offshore account. In the impression, Cheng Sheng talked to him and knew a lot better than him about it.
“Oh, you know, I have a friend who wanted to take me to open an agency company to do this. I was very excited.”
“Then why didn’t you go?”
“This kind of exploiting legal loopholes is a bit risky. I don’t have to make as much money as I need to spend. So, thinking over, I just thought I should forget it.”
“Do you understand the process? Tell me about it.”
Cheng Sheng raised his eyebrows and asked, “Who do you want to help with this?”
“Don’t worry, it’s not me who wants to do it anyway.”
“Oh, that’s good.” Cheng Sheng chatted and told Li Shuo what he knew.
Li Shuo has to say, this is indeed a way to make a lot of money. Those who need to transfer property in this way are not ordinarily rich, but super rich. Zhao Rongtian must have given his dad a considerable commission. The two people are also very close. If Zhao Rongtian knew what his son was doing with it, he’s afraid he will be very angry.
“By the way, when will your Sanya resort be completed? I want to buy a condominium. Give me a discount.”
Li Shuo smiled stiffly: “I transferred this project out already. I’m not doing it, but you can still get a discount.”
“Huh? You won’t do it?” Cheng Sheng was surprised, “Didn’t you just come back for this? Haven’t you been busy for months?”
“Well, I was so busy to find that I was not suitable for the project, but I was still suitable for dealing with numbers. I changed hands like this and made a small profit. I want to invest in another firm.”
“That’s good, it’s better to do your job, at least you are sure of yourself. What kind of investment do you want? I will let my friend introduce you.”
Li Shuo talked about his conditions and asked Cheng Sheng to pay attention to it.
“No problem, my friend is the vice president of the branch here, a guest professor of X University, and knows a bunch of smart and ambitious young people.” Cheng Sheng suddenly remembered something, “Hey, do you know how we became friends?”
Li Shuo smiled absent-mindedly: “Is it a fellow gay guy?”
“Hey, no, this guy is a straight guy. But his brother is gay and he wants to introduce him to me, but I don’t like Asian type. How can I dare to try?” Cheng Sheng clapped his hands, “I don’t dare. Then I remembered you. His younger brother is definitely your favorite type. He is a teacher. I have a photo…” He said as he was about to grab his phone.
“Cheng Sheng.” Li Shuo interrupted him, “I prefer to be single lately, let’s talk about it later.”
Cheng Sheng ‘tsk tsk’ him twice and punched him on the shoulder, “Isn’t it healed yet from playing around? You can do it. The two of us met before you had your first boyfriend. You think I don’t understand you yet? You, this is just the next one, what is a big deal for you?”
Li Shuo smiled: “It’s not that I have some kind of love that hasn’t healed yet. But I feel comfortable this way and want to be alone for some time.”
He has never experienced the feeling of being hollowed out by a relationship. He feels so empty that he dares not try new ones easily. It was for fear that he has nothing to give to the other party.
Besides, his entanglement with Zhao Jinxin is not over yet.
After eating, Li Shuo drove home.
As soon as the elevator door opened, he heard the sound of typing on the keyboard in the corridor. It was crisp and very rhythmic.
Li Shuo walked to his door and saw Zhao Jinxin sitting cross-legged on the ground, leaning against the wall, with a laptop on his lap, regardless of a suit and leather shoes. He was typing. At the same time, he raised his head and glanced at him. He smiles, “You’re back.”
Li Shuo had no expression. He just took out the key to open the door.
Zhao Jinxin closed his laptop with a ‘pop’, stood up, and sniffed around Li Shuo, “Did you eat curry Thai food today? With who?”
“You should already know. Why pretending to ask?” Li Shuo raised his foot and entered the door.
Zhao Jinxin was noncommittal. He pretended to ignore Li Shuo’s indifference and said to himself: “I’ve been waiting for you for a long time and haven’t eaten yet. I’m so hungry.”
“Did you come here to eat at my house or to have sex?” Li Shuo smiled sarcastically.
Zhao Jinxin was stunned: “I want more than just sex. I want everything you have without reservation, just like before.”
“Then we can only go back to the past.” Li Shuo took off his jacket and threw it aside, then raised his chin slightly, squinting at Zhao Jinxin. “Deserve to be a bed partner.”
Zhao Jinxin’s adam’s apple slid up and down. The Li Shuo in front of his eyes is casual and cold. It made him feel painful yet also deeply seduced.
He walked towards Li Shuo step by step, as if walking towards a poppy flower cluster, beautiful and dangerous, making people want to stop.
In view of the fact that the little half-year window period is indeed a bit difficult, Li Shuo decided to enjoy it, and only treat Zhao Jinxin as a simple bed partner to please himself. He will feel much better in his heart.
Zhao Jinxin said that he couldn’t imagine how much of a bastard he really is.
He will also make Zhao Jinxin unable to imagine the price of threatening him.
