Chapter 389 - Don't Forget About the Recording
Yushu was blushing as she contemplated when Mengyao interrupted her. “You’re not thinking of something unhealthy again, are you?”
“No, no!” Yushu shook her head after getting caught.
“Then why’re you blushing?” Mengyao didn’t believe her.
“I was just thinking that my old wish is kinda hard to come true… Hehe. But I’ve decided to make some changes to my wish!” Yushu said. “I’ve decided to marry the same man Yao Yao marries- that way we’ll get to live together forever!”
“......” Mengyao sweated at the announcement, speechless. “Why are you still thinking about that wish..?”
An annoying visitor came to the villa right before dusk.
Lin Yi didn’t think that An Jianwen dude would have the guts to come up their doorstep again- did he want to get beat up again?
One look at that wide smile on his face and Lin Yi even thought that he’d lost his memories from that beating!
“Little brother Lin! I’m sorry for what happened last time, we had to split ways so unpleasantly! It’s this older brother’s fault, to be sure- I’ve been away from Songshan so long I didn’t even understand the current situation! But enough about that… Are you free tonight? You’re quite popular, I’ve got a couple of bros who’d very much like to meet you! They’d like to have a drink with you in person.” Jianwen said as he smiled at Lin Yi.
Lin Yi looked at Jianwen oddly. Was this guy thinking of getting revenge on him because of what had happened to him last time? What an impatient fellow, thinking about stuff like that right after losing face.
Lin Yi turned to Mengyao for her input.
Naturally, Mengyao guessed that Jianwen wasn’t planning on doing anything nice for Lin Yi. If the guy didn’t have a medical condition he should still remember how Lin Yi had messed him up! That plaster on his forehead was proof of that.
“Big bro Jianwen, could there be something wrong with your head?” Yushu had a surprised look on her face as she faced Jianwen.
“.....” Jianwen blinked, unsure of what to say. “Shu, what are you saying… I don’t understand…”
(So there’s a lot of instances where ‘sweated’ is used. If you’re confused it represents speechlessness most of the time, like in asian comics where there’s three black lines on the side of a character’s head when he or she is speechless at what’s happening in a comedic situation. The author actually describes some of these situations using ‘some black lines formed on Jianwen’s head’ sometimes.)
“It’s nothing, I just feel like you’re... just asking for it.” Yushu didn’t care about Jianwen losing face or anything- she had no reason to respect him.
Jianwen was in quite a helpless position regarding Chen Yushu- as pissed as he was, there wasn’t much he could say because of the image he had to keep in front of Mengyao, along with the fact that he couldn’t afford to piss this woman off!
“Lil’ sis Yao Yao, I’m here to thank my savior today- you wouldn’t mind lending me your bodyguard for a bit, right?” Jianwen smiled at Mengyao as he placed the emphasis on the word ‘bodyguard’, implying to her that he’d learned of Lin Yi’s identity already.
Mengyao frowned at that- Lin Yi being hired by her dad wasn’t a secret in the first place, a lot of the people in the company knew about it. She wouldn’t be able to hide it from him even if she wanted to, and it was too easy for Jianwen to find out if he actually tried asking around.
She wasn’t saying anything about Lin Yi now that Jianwen was pulling that secret out. “It’s nighttime- what he does isn’t under my control.”
Mengyao was actually pretty frustrated because of what happened this afternoon- it was a frustration she couldn’t relieve herself of. Now that Jianwen was here to cause Lin Yi trouble, Mengyao would naturally welcome it.
Although it was pretty obvious that Jianwen would get messed up again, Mengyao didn’t want Lin Yi to be all peaceful and relaxed- letting him do some work might just ease her frustrations a little.
“Haha, lil bro Lin, now that your boss is giving the green light, how about it? For my sake?” Jianwen started smiling at Lin Yi again.
“Fine, let’s go then!” Lin Yi nodded- Now that Mengyao had spoken he might as well just get it over with and teach this kid another lesson. Shields should have a shield’s self awareness, after all- he couldn’t just take the salary for nothing.
“Then let’s go! Follow me, Mister Lin!” Jianwen was overjoyed at Lin Yi’s ‘yes’- Mengyao and Lin Yi’s guesses were right, he was indeed here today for revenge!
Lin Yi’s little trick on him last time made him quite furious- it was a frustration he couldn’t vent out, especially when the Li Cihua who beat him up was a business partner! There was no way he could do anything about that rage now, other than showing Lin Yi what he was made of- the guy would think he was an easy target if he didn’t!
Naturally, Jianwen couldn’t just go against Lin Yi out in the open- after all, he’d come here to ask Lin Yi to dinner fresh out of Mengyao’s villa. One had to know who the master of the dog he or she beat up was, after all. Making it too obvious would make Mengyao think he was petty, too.
Jianwen’s main idea today was to get Lin Yi back the same way, and that was to mess him up in a way Lin Yi couldn’t do or say anything about!
Lin Yi stood up and walked out the villa with Jianwen when Yushu called out behind him all of a sudden. “Shield Bro, record it! Don’t forget to record it!”
Lin Yi nodded, a bitter smile on his face as the Jianwen in front almost tripped himself- So Lin Yi even recorded what happened last time?! That meant that Mengyao saw it too, didn’t it?!
It’d be such a humiliation if that was the case! So that was why Mengyao’s eyes felt off when she was looking at that plaster on his head, it was because she knew what happened already!
That bastard Lin Yi had hell to pay! This time around the one getting humiliated would be Lin Yi, however- since Yushu wanted a recording so much he might as well fulfill that wish and get her that footage!
Jianwen’s heart relaxed a little at that thought, and a smile formed on his face, as if he didn’t understand what Yushu was saying. “Don’t worry, lil sis Shu! I’ll get a professional photographer to record our beer battle!”
Yushu didn’t reply, but frowned instead, waiting until both Lin Yi and Jianwen were gone before turning to Mengyao. “Yao Yao, doesn’t An Jianwen look very confident this time?”
“Who knows? He looked confident last time.” Mengyao curled her lips- compared to Lin Yi, she found Jianwen much more irritating and hateable.
“You’re right. Let’s hope Shield Bro surprises us this time too! Hehe, I wanna see what kind of mess An Jianwen gets into this time…” Yushu nodded.
Lin Yi had a pretty good idea what Jianwen had in store for him, judging by what he said. Beer battle… Did this guy want to get him drunk so he could do something to him??
But was getting him drunk even possible? Lin Yi smiled faintly to himself as he walked behind Jianwen.
“Mister Lin, since we’re wasting ourselves tonight why don’t you come in my car? You wouldn’t be able to drive after drinking anyway, right?” Jianwen was worried LIn Yi might refrain from drinking too much if he had to drive back home- it’d mess up his plans.
“Alright then, I’ll sit in your car.” Lin Yi didn’t mind- he could always get a taxi if he didn’t have his car.
“Alright- I specifically got us a driver. Don’t even have my own sports car today!” Jianwen was quite delighted to hear Lin Yi agree.
