When Xie Zhongxing was approached by a lawyer surnamed Ge, it happened to be a rainy day.
That lawyer advertised himself as the most capable lawyer in the capital and expressed that he could help Xie Zhongxing with his lawsuit.But Qin Zhongyue who was constantly going around with Xie Zhongxing snorted and interjected, “I’ve already found a lawyer for him, we don’t need you!”His tone wasn’t great.
Xie Zhongxing gave him a look and said, “Sorry, I do indeed already have a lawyer.
You have come all the way here for nothing.”Qin Zhongyue had a reason for his poor tone and attitude.
Although he can be quite dense, but he would be particularly sensitive about anything involving Xie Zhongxing.
The moment he saw this lawyer, he didn’t feel comfortable.
He couldn’t explain what that feeling was but in any case, he didn’t like this lawyer.When the lawyer finally spoke, he suddenly understood why.
The lawyer looked kind, but he seemed to give off an air of superiority.What? Just because he’s some big shot lawyer, he feels that he has lowered himself to represent Xie Zhongxing?He probably thought they didn’t know that working as a lawyer requires one to run around everywhere.
If they’re not very well known, they would try and expand their reputation by working on cases that attracted a lot of attention.
He clearly only offered his services to Xie Zhongxing because he wants the limelight!He should be more alert so that Xie Zhongxing isn’t cheated by this ‘big shot lawyer’!Thinking this, Qin Zhongyue immediately raised his voice and said loudly, “Do you know who the lawyer I hired is? It’s Lawyer Han Yun! As a lawyer, you can’t possibly say that you haven’t heard of him?”Lawyer Ge was taken aback.
He couldn’t help but say, “Impossible!”Qin Zhongyue was very proud, “How is it impossible? I have his phone number here.
If you don’t believe me, you can call to confirm.”After saying that, he took out his phone and pulled up Han Yun’s phone number before giving the phone to Lawyer Ge, “You can call and ask.”Lawyer Ge hesitated for a moment before receiving the phone.
He stared at the ‘Lawyer Han Yun’ contact on the phone, his finger hovering in the air in hesitation.Qin Zhongyue asked, “Why aren’t you calling? Call him!”Lawyer Ge glanced at Qin Zhongyue and pressed the dial button.The phone number was Han Yun’s private number so it was answered very quickly.
He was a very well-known lawyer in his field having not only dealt with many criminal cases but also many difficult civil cases.
He had left a name for himself as a lawyer, and many knew him as someone who would never lose a case.Han Yun answered the phone and asked kindly, “Yue Yue, do you need me for something?”Lawyer Ge was so nervous; his forehead was sweaty.
Han Yun’s court recordings were all used as teaching materials, so it was impossible for him to not recognise his voice.
He could tell it was him as soon as he spoke.This was indeed Han Yun!
He made a gesture of apology to Qin Zhongyue and gave the phone back.Qin Zhongyue answered the phone very naturally, “Hi, Uncle Han.”“Why didn’t you speak just now?” Han Yun asked.Qin Zhongyue glanced at Lawyer Ge gleefully, but his mouth said, “It’s nothing.
I just wanted to hear more of uncle’s voice.
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you, I miss you so much.”Han Yun laughed, “You’re almost an adult yet you still like to act spoiled.”Qin Zhongyue, “Even if I’m thirty, I am still a child in front of uncle.
I have the right to act spoiled!”Han Yun laughed and said, “Okay, let’s leave it at that.
I’m already in A City.
Let’s quickly resolve your classmate’s case so that I can go back to the capital.”Qin Zhongyue said a few more cloying words, making Han Yun laugh, before hanging up.After ending the call, he raised his chin and said smugly, “Heard that? If you still don’t believe me, I can let you meet my uncle.”Lawyer Ge quickly declined, “No need, no need.
I believe you.
I was the one who had eyes but was blind, alright?”He wiped away the sweat from his forehead and turned to Xie Zhongxing, “I was asked by your grandmother to come and help you.
Since you don’t need me, I’ll go back.”After saying that, he pulled out a file from his briefcase, “These are the details about breakup fee and your child support money, it should be three hundred thousand in total.
I investigated it a little and your grandmother didn’t know your father had already passed away at the time, so the money fell into your uncle’s hands.
If you want to file this lawsuit, this information would be necessary for you.”Xie Zhongxing was stunned when he heard this, “Grandmother?”Lawyer Ge said, “Yes, your grandmother on your mother’s side.”Xie Zhongxing was silent.Qin Zhongyue quietly sneaked a look at Xie Zhongxing’s face.
The originally smug expression also slowly grew more cautious.After a long period of silence, Xie Zhongxing asked, “My mother, is she well?”
He hesitated for a moment and only picked out a small part to talk about, “Your mother now has a new family and has a son.
She is living without needing to worry about the food she eats and the clothes she wears.”Xie Zhongxing lowered his eyes and said softly, “I see.”I see.Xie Zhongxing said, “That’s good then.”He received the file and said lightly, “Help me give her my thanks.”After a pause, he added, “And wish her happiness along the way.
Tell her that I hope she lives a good life.”Lawyer Ge nodded, “I will convey it.
Well then, if you don’t need me anymore, I’ll be leaving.”Xie Zhongxing, “It’s alright.
Thank you for coming all the way here.”Lawyer Ge breathed a sigh of relief, “It’s nothing.”After saying that, he got up and left the café.Qin Zhongyue took a sip of his drink as he watched Lawyer Ge get into a car with his umbrella and gulped down the drink in his mouth.“Um….Xing Xing.” Qin Zhongyue called out.Xie Zhongxing looked up at him, “Hm?”Qin Zhongyue’s voice was small, “Your mother must have seen the reports about you, so she asked the lawyer to come and help you.”Xie Zhongxing let out a soft hum.Qin Zhongyue asked, “Do you want to find her?”Xie Zhongxing was stunned for a moment, “Why would I want to find her?”Qin Zhongyue, “Isn’t she your mother?”Xie Zhongxing exhaled and said, “After hearing the reports, she only sent a lawyer over to meet me.
Don’t you understand what that means? She doesn’t want her life to be disrupted by me.”Qin Zhongyue’s eyes widened, “She doesn’t want to see you?”Xie Zhongxing looked at him and patiently explained, “She already has a new family.
She has a husband and a son.
To her, I’m not indispensable.
All I can do is to wish her well.”
Qin Zhongyue was silent.
After a while, he asked, “Won’t you be sad?”Xie Zhongxing answered calmly, “I’m fine.
I’ve already expected this.”Qin Zhongyue was already feeling upset for him.Even his biological mother didn’t want him.In his past life, what had he gone through?Xie Zhongxing looked at him and turned into the one doing the comforting, “As someone as excellent as my father, I believe that she definitely loved him, so regardless of whether she gave birth to me before or after she broke up with him, she gave birth to me because she loved me.
You should know that two people who love each other may not necessarily get together.
It could be due to all sorts of reasons.
Love however cannot be extinguished.
Just knowing that I was a child born out of love between my parents is enough.”He looked into Qin Zhongyue’s eyes and said sincerely, “At least right now, I think it’s pretty good.
I’m not upset.”Qin Zhongyue wasn’t as open-minded as him.
He only felt confused.
In his opinion, if there is love, then one wouldn’t just do nothing about it and turn a blind eye, just like how he would never leave Xie Zhongxing alone to fend for himself.He couldn’t do that himself and he wasn’t even Xie Zhongxing’s parents.Can a mother really turn a blind eye to the child she personally gave birth to?Qin Zhongyue didn’t know, but when he saw XIe Zhongxing acting so unconcerned, he felt very upset for him.Qin Zhongyue tried his best to suppress the uncomfortable feeling inside him and forcefully changed the topic, “The rain is getting heavier.
Why don’t you come to my place?”Xie Zhongxing, “I still have to go back to finish my papers.”Qin Zhongyue glumly thought to himself: Oh right, he’s also a study god.Qin Zhongyue then remembered his original plan to act like he was good with his studies.
He asked a little timidly, “Um, Xing Xing, what do you think of people with bad grades?”Xie Zhongxing glanced at him and suddenly smiled, “It would depend on who that person is.”Qin Zhongyue’s heart skipped a beat when he saw this smile.
He wanted to avoid exposing himself but that warm smile left him dizzy and dazed.
As he stared at the corners of Xie Zhonging’s thin lips, he couldn’t help but think—-I really want to kiss him.Externally, he stammered timidly, “W-what if my grades are bad?”
Xie Zhongxing said, “You’re clever though.
Your grades shouldn’t be too bad?”Qin Zhongyue, “……”For a second, Qin Zhongyue wanted to continue with his façade a little longer but now that he knew that Xie Zhongxing was an almighty study tyrant, how could he dare continue putting up that act in front of him? Sooner or later, he would be stripped bare and have his lies exposed so it was better to confess now.Qin Zhongyue thought confidently to himself: He had never said himself that he had good grades!If Xie Zhongxing wants to think that way, then that’s not his problem!After a series of self-consolation, he felt more at ease inside.
He looked at Xie Zhongxing and said with determination, “There is something I forgot to tell you.
My total test score was only 420.”Xie Zhongxing, “……”The smile on Xie Zhongxing’s lips couldn’t be maintained anymore, “Didn’t you say that you wanted to get into Tsinghua or Peking University?”Qin Zhongyue nodded, “That’s right!”Xie Zhongxing, “…..”The expression on his face slowly fell, “Do you know how much you need to be able to get into those universities?”Qin Zhongyue, “I do.
The admission score last year was 672.”Xie Zhongxing, “………”If you already knew then why???Xie Zhongxing took a deep breath and asked very gently, “Then how do you plan on raising your scores by 252 in the next two months to get into one of those universities?”Qin Zhongyue laughed loudly with a look of confidence, “Well of course it’s not by dreaming.
You already said that I’m clever, so I’ll definitely be able to get in, no?”Xie Zhongxing, “……..”The author has something to say:Xing Xing: You sure know yourself well (sarcastic)Baby Yue feels wronged: You don’t believe in me!! You actually don’t believe in me QAQ
