Chapter 10

Xu Feng

The school Tang Yajie was in was located in the center of the provincial capital. Every inch of land here was expensive. The streets were filled with luxurious shops, and beautiful men and women pa.s.sed through them.

On the way to school in the car, Tang Zhen looked at the bustling scene and the busy crowd that pa.s.sed by from time to time and couldn’t help but sigh. After returning from the alternate world, his mentality had changed. He was less confused than before and more confident!

When she arrived at the university, Tang Zhen’s sister, Tang Yajie, was already waiting at the school gate for a long time. She was also very excited about her brother’s arrival.

When she was young, her brother was her idol. In her eyes, nothing was difficult for her brother.

When she had been bullied, her brother would help her vent her anger. Even if he was beaten black and blue, he had to defeat the bad guy who bullied her. When she encountered a problem during her studies, his brother, who had been very good at studying since he was young, would help her solve her doubts. As for him, because of their family, he didn’t even go to university. He entered society to earn money before graduating from high school.

Tang Yajie felt happy from the bottom of her heart to have such a brother who had protected her since she was young. Although she had long known that there was no blood relations.h.i.+p between the two parties, Tang Yajie and Tang Zhen had a sibling relations.h.i.+p that was far deeper than blood. At the same time, they regarded each other as the most important existence in their lives.

Tang Yajie was 1.72 meters tall and wore a pair of light-colored jeans. Her figure was gentle and straight, and she attracted the attention of pa.s.sers-by when she stood by the roadside. She had a good figure, good looks, good grades, and a cheerful and generous personality. It was these proud conditions that made her the girl countless boys dreamed of.

However, at this moment, this G.o.ddess in the hearts of countless boys was completely focused on the young man walking over opposite her. A sweet smile appeared on her quiet and beautiful face.

“Brother, I’m here!”

Tang Yajie waved her hand and ran to Tang Zhen in three steps. She playfully held Tang Zhen’s arm and asked in a strange tone, “Brother, you’re usually so busy that you can’t wait to clone yourself. Why are you free to see me today?”

Tang Zhen chuckled. He looked at his sister’s bright eyes and said in a relaxed tone, “It’s only right for me to come and see my sister. I’m not like you, a conspiracy theorist who always thinks that everyone has ulterior motives!”

Tang Yajie pinched Tang Zhen’s waist and snorted angrily. “And you call yourself a brother? You actually described your sister as a schemer. You deserve to be beaten!”

Tang Zhen laughed and hurriedly pretended to be afraid as he dodged. He raised his hand and begged for mercy. On the other hand, Tang Yajie was very surprised by Tang Zhen’s physical fitness, because she realized that the muscles on his brother’s waist seemed to be much stronger than before.

However, her eyes immediately dimmed. In her opinion, this phenomenon was very likely caused by Tang Zhen’s physical labor. She grabbed Tang Zhen’s hands without a trace, and the hard calluses on his palms, confirming her guess.

Tang Yajie had misunderstood this. In fact, even Tang Zhen himself didn’t notice that his physique was gradually becoming stronger.

If one looked into the reason, it was probably because he had killed monsters to level up. According to his personal information, as long as he killed a few more monsters, he would level up and have the powerful strength of an adult.

Tang Zhen was sensitive enough to sense the change in his sister’s gaze, but he didn’t say anything. He just sat silently on the bench under the tree and handed a bank card to Tang Yajie.

“There’s 300,000 yuan in this card. The pa.s.sword is your birthday.”

Looking at the bank card stuffed into her hand, Tang Yajie’s long and flawless eyebrows frowned slightly. Then, she looked at Tang Zhen in an extremely serious tone. “Brother, what’s going on? I want a reasonable explanation!”

He had long known that his scheming sister would have such a question, so Tang Zhen answered very simply, “There’s definitely no problem with the origin of this money, and I similarly won’t do those outrageous things. You don’t have to worry about it. Just study in peace.”

Tang Yajie was silent for a moment before nodding gently. She sighed a little disappointedly and said, “Brother, actually, you don’t have to work this hard. I’ve almost saved up enough school fees now, and soon, the website I established will be profitable. As long as you give me a little more time… I know you’re persistent, but I’ll repay the money Dad owes you. Don’t do anything stupid, or I’ll be very sad…”

Tang Yajie knew what Tang Zhen’s current job was. It was nothing more than carrying bricks. But to be able to get so much living expenses for herself while paying off his debts, this had clearly long exceeded his normal income standard. Her worries were not unreasonable.

However, Tang Yajie also knew Tang Zhen’s personality. If he made up his mind to do something, he would definitely persist to the end. Moreover, Tang Zhen had never lied to her even once since she was young, so she had no reason to doubt the serious guarantee Tang Zhen made.

However, there was always an uneasy fear in Tang Yajie’s heart, making her unable to calm down.

Seeing Tang Yajie’s troubled expression, Tang Zhen’s heart also felt inexplicably sour. Some words were on the tip of his tongue, but he couldn’t say them. He gently pursed his lips, and Tang Zhen’s broad palm brushed Su Yajie’s beautiful hair and flicked her forehead. After making Tang Yajie angry, he laughed out loud.

Tang Yajie curled her lips in grievance and started to pinch Tang Zhen fiercely. At the same time, a tear fell from the corner of her eye.

Ten minutes later, Tang Zhen left the school. When he left, Tang Yajie didn’t ask about the origin of the money anymore. She only said to him in a very serious tone, “Brother, no matter when or what happens, I hope you still remember that you have a sister. She hopes that you take care of yourself and be happy and safe forever…”

Tang Zhen almost endured the sadness in his heart and took a deep look at Tang Yajie. Then, he smiled and waved goodbye to his sister.

Exploring an alternate world was not playing house. The benefits contained there were huge, but so was the risk. There was a risk of death at any time!

He didn’t know if the two of them would have a chance to meet again after leaving this time. But no matter what, his heart was already calm at this moment. With this strong kins.h.i.+p accompanying him, he no longer had any regrets…

After returning home in the car, Tang Zhen took out his cell phone. After a moment of hesitation, he pulled out a phone number from his cell phone contact list, thought for a moment, and called.

The name of the contact he called was surprisingly “Chairperson of the Broken Shoes”!

The call was picked up, but it was hung up. When he dialed again, it was hung up.

Tang Zhen had a bad temper and kept calling. He wanted to keep calling until the other person picked up.

Suddenly, the call went through, but a woman’s strange moan sounded clearly. Then, a man roared in an angry and hoa.r.s.e voice, “d.a.m.n, Tang Zhen, what’s the hurry? Can’t you wait until I’m done feeling good?”

When Tang Zhen heard the voice from the receiver, how could he not understand what the other party was doing? He curled his lips slightly and spat. “Apart from seducing married women all day, what else do you know? I think calling you chairman is definitely true to your name…”

The man opposite immediately replied proudly, “I can do whatever I want. On the other hand, you can just keep being envious, jealous, and hateful!”

Tang Zhen chuckled. “I think you’ve misunderstood. I mean, calling you chairman of broken shoes is a waste of your talent. You should be called the prince of lousy shoes! How is it? Is this name appropriate?”

Unexpectedly, the other party didn’t get angry when he heard that. Instead, he smiled and sighed. “Tang Zhen, you sure know me well! Speaking of which, you haven’t called me in years. Why are you looking for me this time?”

“Can’t I call if there’s nothing?”

“d.a.m.n, cut the c.r.a.p. I know you…”

Just as Tang Zhen finished speaking, he heard rapid breathing from the other end of the phone, followed by a woman’s scream. Tang Zhen frowned when he heard that. Just as he was about to hang up, he heard a voice from the phone. “Let’s meet at the south of the city square in an hour, alright…”

“d.a.m.n, this brat!”

Tang Zhen cursed angrily into the phone, but he felt very uncomfortable.

The young man who Tang Zhen called “the lousy prince” was called Xu Feng. He was also an orphan and had grown up without a home. Perhaps because they were both orphans, the two of them had played around since they were young and had a very close relations.h.i.+p.

Later on, Tang Zhen dropped out of school to work. Xu Feng started to mix with gangsters. The two of them interacted less and less. In the end, they didn’t contact each other for a few years.

Initially, Tang Zhen thought that he and Xu Feng were two different people and wouldn’t have any interaction in the future. But from the looks of it, nothing in this world was absolute. There was only wishful thinking and self-deception.

An hour later, in the square south of the city.

Tang Zhen arrived more than ten minutes early and looked around in boredom.

An off-road vehicle suddenly stopped in front of the stunned Tang Zhen. The window lowered, and a handsome man with silver hair and sungla.s.ses stuck his head out. This person waved lazily at Tang Zhen. After seeing that Tang Zhen deliberately ignored him, the handsome man pulled a bottle of mineral water from near the car seat and threw it at him.

“d.a.m.n!”

Tang Zhen pretended to be surprised and turned around. He looked at the handsome man in surprise and sighed. “Oh, I haven’t seen you in a few years, but you actually didn’t die on a woman’s stomach. Instead, you’re getting more and more energetic. The heavens are really blind!”

The handsome man curled his lips in disdain. He jumped out of the car and sized up Tang Zhen twice. Suddenly, he chuckled and said, “Hehe, I heard that your foster father ran away with the money. Why, it doesn’t feel good to repay someone’s debt, right?”

Tang Zhen’s expression darkened, and he shook his head slightly.

Seeing this, Xu Feng punched Tang Zhen’s shoulder and comforted him. “It’s not a big deal. Why don’t you follow me? I guarantee that you’ll repay your debt in less than three years, and you’ll still have excess!”

“Forget it, I can’t do what you do!”

“Ridiculous! Why don’t I introduce you to a top-notch girl? Don’t worry, she’s definitely clean. It’ll also save you from always thinking about that schemer Fang Yujia?”

Tang Zhen curled his lips and said disdainfully, “Thank you. I’m not like you. I don’t like that type. As for Fang Yujia… I’ve already given up.”

Xu Feng sneered and tilted his head. “It’s not like you don’t know that I’m not interested in those immature women… Alright, it’s good that you’ve given up. Let’s not talk about our troubles anymore. Tell me, why did you want to meet?”

Tang Zhen put away his previous cynicism and looked around. He said softly, “Help me get a pistol and some bullets.”

Xu Feng was stunned, and a trace of surprise flashed in his eyes. His originally narrowed peach blossom eyes instantly opened. “Why do you want that thing? Don’t tell me you want to kill Fang Yujia’s lover? Let me tell you, don’t get involved with something like this. I’m done talking about this. I can’t help you with this!”
