Shi Yunnan waited in the hall for a while before seeing Luo Lingsheng’s figure.
He quickly put down the coffee cup in his hand and approached him, “What’s taking so long”
Luo Lingsheng looked around and asked, “Where’s Mr.
Shi Yunnan didn’t react for two seconds before he understood who the other party was referring to as ‘Mr.
Wen’ , “My brother has already gone back.”
Wen Yibei was a gentle person who wouldn’t fight or compete with others.
At first, he was just standing up for Shi Yunnan in the corridor, but he eventually got mad at himself.
After pulling Shi Yunnan out of the corridor, Wen Yibei’s eyes were so red that they could shed tears at any time.
Shi Yunnan pretended to be sweet and goofy for a little while to appease his brother.
He originally wanted to send Wen Yibei back in person, but the other party didn’t agree.
He called for a taxi and left on his own.
“Is there any problem on his end” Luo Lingsheng asked one more question.
“There should be no problem.
My brother has a house in the Imperial Capital, and the time he spent at the Wen house in the past two years was not much.
My grandfather should have expected this result long ago.
He didn’t seem to react strongly just now.
“Patriarch, I’ll go ahead and drive the car over.
Both of you, please wait here for a while.
After Yuan Meng left, Shi Yunnan returned to the question he had just asked, “Why did it take you so long to come out You can’t be taking care of the aftermath for me, did you I really didn’t cause any trouble today.
“No, it was Wen Wanyou.”
When Shi Yunnan heard this, the corner of his mouth twitched immediately: “She hasn’t given up yet”
Luo Lingsheng stared at the other party’s jealous expression.
The corners of his mouth rose slightly, “Yuan Meng watched the whole process. I have already said what I should say.
Shi Yunnan let out a low snort and took the initiative to push Luo Lingsheng’s wheelchair outside, “You took too long to turn her down. You’re not being straightforward at all.“
Luo Lingsheng didn’t expect Shi Yunnan to pick out a thorn from this angle, so he couldn’t help but chuckle, “Old Mr.
Wen also sought me out.”
“My grandpa did”
Luo Lingsheng nodded slightly, took out the bank card and handed it over, “He prepared this for you.
He was afraid that you wouldn’t accept it, so he temporarily handed it over to me, and let me keep it for you.
Shi Yunnan lowered his eyes and looked at the bank card, vaguely dazed.
“I want to refuse, but I can’t bear to let him down.”
Luo Lingsheng looked over and made his attitude clear: “I know I can’t make decisions for you.”
“If you don’t want to accept this bank card, I will find a way to return it to the old sir as it is, without involving the old man’s opinion of you.”
Shi Yunnan smiled slightly when he heard Luo Lingsheng’s considerate words, “I know this is my grandpa’s good intention, so I’ll keep it for now.
Returning it back will only make him sad.
He took over the bank card and had his own considerations. “But I won’t use the money on this card.
I will either find a way to spend it on my grandpa’s pension in the future, or fund poor children who want to learn musical instruments“
“I think Grandpa shouldn’t have any opinions.”
Luo Lingsheng did not refute and completely respected Shi Yunnan’s personal choice.
“However, I’m quite happy.“
Shi Yunnan played with the thin bank card in his hand, bent down and laughed, “Luo Lingsheng.”
The two stopped at the entrance of the hotel, where the evening breeze was a little chilly.
Luo Lingsheng looked at Shi Yunnan’s eyes full of smiles, inexplicably hoping that time would stop at this moment, “En What are you happy about “
Shi Yunan replied, “Grandpa can rest assured giving you the bank card, which shows that he has acknowledged you.”
Luo, can you take good care of him in private
—If something like today happens again, and if your bodyguard is not around, can you protect Yunnan at critical moments
Old man Wen’s two questions suddenly flashed through Luo Lingsheng’s mind.
It wasn’t a severe criticism nor a harsh query, but these two mild sentences visibly affected his heart.
Luo Lingsheng caught sight of his legs out of the corner of his eye and thought to himself—
There is no answer.
Shi Yunnan noticed that the person in front of him had a rare absentmindedness.
He was just about to ask when Yuan Meng stopped the car in front of them.
At the same time, Qin Jian, who had copied the hotel surveillance video, also returned.
Luo Lingsheng suppressed the complexity in his heart, and his voice returned to normal, “Let’s go home.”
The next day
Shi Yunnan slept in until the afternoon before waking up leisurely.
After returning from the Wen family’s banquet, he also called Wen Yibei to confirm that the other party’s condition was fine and then prepared to rest early.
But before going to bed, an overseas client suddenly requested him to revise a design draft.
In order to accommodate the client’s time, Shi Yunnan could only stay up all night to communicate via video call.
As soon as the door was closed, he was busy until almost 4:00 am.
Shi Yunnan took a shower and left the bedroom.
As soon as he went down the stairs, he saw a well-dressed woman sitting in the living room.
The two sides looked at each other, and both were stunned.
The exquisite woman looked at Shi Yunnan’s appearance with interest and stood up to greet him, “Hello, my name is Luo Rong.”
Another surname Luo
Shi Yunnan thought to himself, and nodded politely to her.
“I’m seven or eight years older than Lingsheng.
Based on seniority, I’d be his cousin.
” Luo Rong took the initiative to mention it without concealing her identity.
She looked so young that one couldn’t tell her actual age at all, and her way of talking was also very pleasant.
Luo Rong asked curiously, “When I was abroad, I heard that the head of the family suddenly got married.
Do you happen to be the said partner “
When Shi Yunnan heard the term, he got stuck slightly, “…Yes, hello, my name is Shi Yunnan.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Uncle Qin, the housekeeper, who noticed the movement, came over.
Shi, are you awake What do you want to eat I’ll let the kitchen prepare it for you.
Shi Yunnan nodded to Luo Rong, turned around, and walked to the pantry.
The housekeeper saw this and quickly followed.
It wasn’t until he was out of Luo Rong’s sight that Shi Yunnan lowered his voice and asked, “Uncle Qin, who is Luo Rong…“
Shi Yunan’s question had already been expected by housekeeper Qin, who answered in a low voice, “Mr.
Shi should have known that Old Master Luo had a total of four children before his death right”
Shi Yunnan replied, “Yeah.”
For convenience, outsiders directly used ‘first house‘ to ‘fourth house‘ to remember them.
After Old Master Luo passed away, the first house was the most vicious and ruthless.
For the sake of power, they completely abandoned human feelings and orchestrated a car accident that killed Luo Lingsheng’s parents, his sister, and his brother-in-law.
Therefore, Luo Lingsheng sent this entire family to prison without hesitation after gaining power.
The second house was led by Luo Yanchuan’s parents at the time.
Because they were willing to live like tortoises and give up most of their inheritance rights, they weren’t targeted by Luo Lingsheng.
Shi Yunnan thought about it for a while and had another guess in his heart, “Luo Rong is from the third house Isn’t it said that the third house was bankrupted by Luo Lingsheng“
Uncle Qin nodded and explained the reason in a low voice, “Luo Rong’s mother is the only daughter of Old Master Luo, and the third master was the one who married in.”
“It’s a long story. Luo Rong’s mother died because of another’s scheme, and her relationship with the third master and others has also frozen into ice…“
Luo Rong’s mother died early, and her father took over the marital assets, married a second wife, and had a son.
Compared with her biological father and half-brother, Luo Rong was not interested in power at all.
Therefore, when Luo Lingsheng had the intention of fighting for power after the sudden change, Luo Rong, his cousin, did not hesitate to stand in his camp.
Facts have proved that Luo Rong’s choice was the right one.
“Over the years, Miss Luo Rong has been living abroad.
She returned to China two days ago to take care of some personal affairs.
She just wanted to meet the partriarch when she had time today.
Shi Yunnan raised his eyebrows and said, “Where’s Luo Lingsheng He didn’t go to the company today “
Uncle Qin shook his head and told his whereabouts, “After lunch, the patriarch went to the training room in the back building.”
“Training room Is Luo Lingsheng still rehabilitating ” Shi Yunnan was surprised.
Before entering the Luo family, Shi Yunnan knew that Luo Lingsheng didn’t like others to mention his leg injury, so he kept his mouth shut.
But for selfish reasons, he wanted to know everything about Luo Lingsheng.
Shi Yunnan didn’t even drink the refreshing tea to moisten his throat, “I’ll go take a look.”
Uncle Qin looked at Shi Yunnan’s hastily departing back and hesitated.
The patriarch didn’t like too many outsiders staring at him when he was rehabilitating, but when he thought that this person was Shi Yunnan, he had no intention of stopping him.
The Luo Family Manor covered a large area, but the main house and the training room were only less than 100 meters apart.
Shi Yunnan was only a few steps away from the door of that independent house building when he saw four or five medical staff hurriedly leaving with medical equipment, their faces gloomy.
Shi Yunnan thought that something had happened to Luo Lingsheng, and quickly walked in.
The whole first floor of this building had been converted into a training space.
At first glance, there was a wide range of equipment.
There was equipment commonly found in gyms, and there was also strange special auxiliary equipment.
Shi Yunnan soon caught a glimpse of Luo Lingsheng’s figure——
Luo Lingsheng was wearing a black vest and sweatpants that he seldom wore.
The wheelchair that he had been using to assist his mobility was put to one side.
At this moment, his hands were firmly propped up on two parallel bars, and the smooth muscle lines were tense.
The sunlight scattered through the glass window illuminated the thin layer of sweat on his skin and arms.
Luo Lingsheng’s back was soaked wet.
The black vest attached to his body vaguely outlined his lean and sexy upper body.
Shi Yunnan’s eyes swept down, his breathing suddenly hitched—
This was the first time he had seen Luo Lingsheng’s legs hidden under his suit pants.
They weren’t as frail and ugly as he had imagined.
They were well-proportioned but abnormally thin.
Maybe because he was trying hard to walk right now, the blue veins hidden under the skin of his legs burst out, which was particularly obvious.
Because his back was turned and because he couldn’t be distracted, Luo Lingsheng didn’t immediately notice his arrival.
Shi Yunnan estimated Luo Lingsheng’s height with his eyes.
He was at least 1.85 centimeters or more, a little taller than he was.
In his mind, Shi Yunnan imagined the height difference between them standing side by side.
He quietly observed without rushing forward to disturb him.
Luo Lingsheng walked very slowly.
Seeing that he was only one step away from the finish line, he tentatively let go of his hands and took a step forward.
But things backfired.
His whole body seemed to lose its weight suddenly and smashed down hard.
Luo Lingsheng let out a muffled grunt, and Shi Yunnan’s anxious voice came at the same time.
Shi Yunnan quickly ran to his side and squatted down, “Are you alright Did you get hurt anywhere “
Luo Lingsheng saw the person suddenly appear in front of him and forced the pain back into his heart.
He glanced at his own wretched and unsightly legs, and subconsciously picked up the towel on the side to cover them.
“What are you doing here”
Luo Lingsheng’s tone was a little anxious and trembling with panic.
He was so tired that he couldn’t stabilize his ragged breathing when he spoke, which easily covered up his real emotion.
“I’ll help you…”
The two spoke at the same time, trying to express a very different meaning.
Only then did Shi Yunnan notice Luo Lingsheng’s emotions and slightly wrinkled his brow, “No, I’ll help you up first and see if you get hurt.”
With that, he tried to hold Luo Lingsheng’s arm.
Luo Lingsheng almost instinctively pushed his hand away and sharply roared, “Shi Yunnan! I told you to get out! “
Shi Yunnan was startled, and the hand that was trying to help stopped in mid-air.
Luo Lingsheng captured his instantly frozen look, and for a while, self-blame and guilt were intertwined in his heart.
Somehow, those words drilled into his mind again—
“Can you protect Yunnan at critical moments”
The answer was particularly clear and ridiculous right now.
He can not.
In contrast, he even relied on the other party for help.
Silence and persistence spread around the two of them.
Luo Lingsheng felt that he was about to be swallowed up by a strong sense of powerlessness.
Any accusations and inquiries from others could not equal the current scene.
Right now, he had no assistants or bodyguards, no identity as the family head, and no glamorous appearance.
He was just a piece of trash who couldn’t even walk.
Shi Yunnan dropped his hand and asked in a low voice, “Luo Lingsheng”
Luo Lingsheng struggled to find his voice and said it in a low voice.
“….You’ve crossed the line.”
Here comes the anguish.
