After Playing the Fool and Marrying the Blind Villain [Transmigration] - Chap 51
In a hotel suite, Bo Guancheng was in formal attire, looking at himself in the mirror.
The doorbell rang, and the assistant standing outside whispered, “Boss Cheng, people have already arrived, and the celebration banquet downstairs is about to begin.”
“En, I understand.”
Bo Guancheng picked up a million-yuan wristwatch and slowly fastened it to his wrist, in no hurry to go downstairs.
The star and main focus of tonight’s celebration banquet was someone else, and he didn’t need to be there on time to find a sense of presence.
He turned around to look at the assistant who had been with him for almost five or six years, his long, narrow eyes gleaming. “You go down and observe first. Remember, arrange it cleverly.”
The assistant knew his plans for tonight, and swallowed. “Yes.”
After speaking, he quickly left the suite, not forgetting to firmly close the door.
The woman standing in the living room of a hotel suite held the staff uniform against her body, and cautiously looked at Bo Guancheng, who had come out of the master bedroom.
She had been found and called over by the other party’s assistant. Facing the unfamiliar environment and an unknown situation, she inevitably harbored a trace of uneasiness in her heart. “…….Mr, Mr. Cheng.”
Bo Guancheng approached and glanced at her nameplate. “Lin Na?”
Lin Na took a deep breath. “Yes.”
Bo Guancheng asked casually, “Do you know my last name?”
Lin Na nodded, changing her words uncertainly. “Mr. Bo?”
The corners of Bo Yueming’s mouth drooped a little, as if he disliked this title.
He didn’t know when it started, but when the words “Mr. Bo” were mentioned outside, people would always think of Bo Yueming, not Bo Guancheng!
With Bo Peizhi’s surname and part of Cheng Yangshan’s name, he was clearly the eldest grandson of the Bo family—
But ever since Bo Yueming came, he had almost become a foil!
After Bo Yueming graduated and joined the Bo family, with the assistance and favor of Old Mrs. Bo, he gradually became recognized as “General Manager Bo” by outsiders, while Bo Guancheng, who had joined the group earlier, got nothing!
In order to distinguish between the two cousins, Bo Guancheng became known as “Mr. Cheng” by others.
In Bo Guancheng’s view, this was a failure after some internal comparison. He maintained his magnanimity on the surface, but secretly tried his utmost to drive Bo Yueming out of Bo Group—
But in less than half a year, the other part actually made a comeback!
Lin Na felt the inexplicable hatred emanating from Bo Guancheng, and felt that her “business arrangement” was not going to be a good deal.
Bo Guancheng pulled away from the short-lived reminiscence and hatred, and searched for a photo on his phone before handing it over. “Remember this person. I will arrange for you to enter his room tonight.”
Lin Na looked at the photo of Bo Yueming, and suddenly felt a sense of familiarity. A small fragment was torn out of her messy memories of the past, causing her to change color on the spot. “This!”
“What? Have you met him before?” Bo Guancheng watched her expression change.
“I haven’t.” Lin Na denied it flatly. “I just, just didn’t expect him to be so young.”
At the beginning, she spent money to enter the convalescent resort through her contacts. She had originally wanted to take advantage of the rich and make some spending money, but didn’t know that she wouldn’t get half a penny. On the eve of running away, she met such a tough opponent as the woman-shunning Bo Yueming.
After learning through gossip that the other party had called the police, Lin Na fled to her hometown to hide for a period of time.
A month ago, she suddenly received a call from “Sister Qiu” in the Imperial Capital. The other party was a well-known elder sister in the Imperial Capital night market, who dealt in the sex trade all year round.
Lin Na had stayed by her side for a period of time two years ago, but later on, she couldn’t stand those dirty tricks played by the rich, so she chose to leave and find a way to make a living.
“Sister Qiu,” who hadn’t seen her for a long time, said on the phone that a benefactor had asked her to find a “sensible unfamiliar young miss.” There was important business to be done, and there would be benefits upon completion of the matter.
Lin Na, who was hiding in her hometown, really had no money to spend, so she agreed after some thought.
After returning to the Imperial Capital, Lin Na didn’t meet that rumored benefactor for a long time, but was instead arranged by the other party to work as a room attendant in this hotel—
The daily work consisted of making deliveries to the guests, which was very easy, and she could still earn a salary of 8,000 yuan per month.
Nearly a month passed in a flash.
Just when Lin Na was unable to make any sense of it, Bo Guancheng’s assistant finally came to her and told her about this “business matter”—
She was arranged to sleep in the bed of a “rich man” and then frame the other party for rape.
“Mr. Bo, I don’t know this person. I may not be able to use the method you mentioned.” Lin Na thought of the person next to Bo Yueming who called him “husband,” and tentatively paved the way for herself, “What if he doesn’t like women? What if he stays awake?”
Bo Guancheng took back his phone and quickly deleted the photo. He felt disgusted looking at Bo Yueming’s mixed-race face.
“He’s blind. I’ll have someone take him to the designated room, then you can use your identity as an attendant to go in.”
Bo Guancheng took out a small, square plastic bag from a drawer, containing two small white pills. “Find a way to give him this medicine yourself. If you can’t even do this, you’re not worthy of being a woman.”
Lin Na took the pills without a word.
When she was working next to Sister Qiu, she learned about the efficacy of these tablets. It was instantly soluble in alcohol, as well as tasteless, and had strong, swift effects.
After twenty-four hours had passed, it was difficult to detect.
Lin Na thought of the follow-up plan and felt a little nervous. “Mr. Bo, is it really okay for us to do this?”
Perhaps it was because she had witnessed Bo Yueming’s resistance and coldness toward her that she felt it would be hard to rely on the medicine, and she still had to slander the other party afterwards.
If she wasn’t careful, she might suffer a loss herself!
Seeing Lin Na’s hesitation, Bo Guancheng opened his mouth agitatedly, “The 100,000 yuan tip has already been credited to your card. You only need to follow my instructions every step after that, and the two million will be yours.”
As soon as Lin Na heard the doubled number, her hesitation instantly turned to ashes in the face of reality.
“Don’t worry, after tonight, I will strictly control public opinion and lead all the conflicting views toward him. After all—” Bo Guancheng pushed up the frame of his glasses and smiled softly and harmlessly, “You are the victim.”
Lin Na met his eyes and subconsciously clenched the pills in her hand. “I understand.”
Bo Yueming was blind, and she had the medicine in her hand. This was just selling herself. What shame, what morality, there was nothing more real than actual money!
Bo Guancheng was very satisfied with Lin Na’s attitude. “Okay, you go out and get ready. Someone will notify you when the time comes.”
Lin Na stopped talking, and left with a determined look.
The door of the room closed again.
Bo Guancheng poured himself a glass of champagne, tasting it leisurely. Tonight, he was going to give Bo Yueming the big surprise of “being ruined.”
What Bo Guancheng didn’t tell Lin Na was that he had made alternate preparations—
In addition to Plan 1 where Lin Na would make accusations against Bo Yueming, Plan 2 also involved installing a hidden camera in the master bedroom of the predetermined suite. The former could be charged with rape, and the latter with filming pornographic images.
No matter which plan, he would let public opinion ferment as soon as possible, and get Bo Yueming and Bo Group on the hook.
Such bad public opinion would immediately affect the short-term interests of Bo Group, but so what? He was only making those shareholders realize—
The existence of Bo Yueming completely violated the group’s interests, and the other party should be completely removed from Bo Group!
As for the reputation and interests involved in the group’s temporary loss, Bo Guancheng didn’t care at all. What he cared about was the future, and that final control of the Bo family fell to their side.
Into the hands of the main branch!
Bo Guancheng drank the champagne in one gulp, hid the malice in his eyes and the calculations in his heart, and donned that gentle, fake expression again before walking out of the suite.
Today, he just needed to stand in the corner and watch it all play out, giving Bo Yueming all the stage time.
The net had already been laid, and he would just wait for the short-sighted fish to take the bait!
. . . . . .
In the banquet hall, toasts were made.
Ever since Bo Yueming went blind in a car accident and lost his position as General Manager, he had gradually become an invisible guest at various banquets. But now, the major shareholders and company executives returned to his side.
Solicitous greetings, strong praise.
Even knowing that Bo Yueming couldn’t see, they all had smiles on their faces.
Lin Zhong silently followed behind Bo Yueming, and couldn’t help but sigh — praising the high and stepping on the low was really the biggest rule in the wealthy business world.
The banquet had been going for almost an hour now, and Bo Yueming, who successfully won the Wencheng project, was still everyone’s main focus. Even as an assistant, Lin Zhong received a lot of compliments.
During these conversations, Bo Yueming finished another glass of wine.
He continued to hide the truth about his regained vision from outsiders. “Lin Zhong, another glass of wine.”
Lin Zhong cooperated with his performance and picked up the empty wine glass, leaving with a “Yes.”
Bo Yueming was always cautious about the drinks and food he brought in. As an assistant, Lin Zhong was aware of this, and today’s occasion was a complicated one with many people.
Lin Zhong walked to the rest area and picked another unopened bottle of wine, then returned to the main area of the banquet hall after filling a glass.
But within three or four minutes, there were a few more people around Bo Yueming, toasting and chatting.
Lin Zhong jumped in from behind Bo Yueming and approached. “Mr. Bo, the wine……”
As soon as he handed over the wine glass in his hand, someone ran into him from behind, and the dark red wine in the glass poured onto Bo Yueming’s suit.
It painted a richly-colored swathe across the champagne-colored fabric.
Lin Zhong didn’t expect that he would make such an amateur mistake. “Mr. Bo! I’m sorry!”
While expressing his apology to Bo Yuming, he immediately turned to check out the situation—
Due to this sudden accident, the shareholders who were standing diagonally behind took a few steps back one after another. Lin Zhong couldn’t detect any abnormalities in their expressions for the moment, and couldn’t figure out if the accident was man-made or unintentional.
He could only take care of Bo Yueming’s situation first. “Mr. Bo, I……”
Bo Yueming caught a glimpse of the large wine stain on his suit, but didn’t intend to blame Lin Zhong. He knew the other party’s style of doing things, and the other was definitely not a careless person.
The surrounding shareholders thought that Bo Yueming was unable to see it, so they hastened to explain the situation. “Aiyo, Mr. Bo, you need to change your suit, it’s stained all over with wine!”
“That’s the bad thing about light-colored suits, especially when something is poured on them.”
“Shall we ask the hotel manager to see if we can find a temporary replacement?”
As the important star of today’s celebration banquet, Bo Yueming couldn’t wear such a dirty suit.
Bo Yueming pretended to realize in hindsight, and interrupted everyone’s kind reminders, “Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry, but please excuse me. I’ll go upstairs to tidy up a bit, so please do as you wish.”
Bo owned some shares of the hotel, and Bo Yueming and the others had exclusive suites reserved here.
The elevator doors closed, cutting off the liveliness and noise of the banquet hall.
Lin Zhong continued to blame himself. “Mr. Bo, I’m really sorry. I was indeed bumped into by someone just now, and accidentally spilled the glass.”
Bo Yueming grasped the key point. “You were bumped into by someone?”
Lin Zhong nodded affirmatively and said in a low voice, “I didn’t catch the person, but from the force they hit me with, it didn’t seem unintentional.”
Bo Yueming faintly sensed something, and asked again, “Did you see Bo Guancheng today?”
Lin Zhong shook his head. “No.”
Bo Yueming watched the slowly ascending elevator floors, his mind running fast.
Wasn’t that strange?
It was impossible for the main branch to allow him to return to group headquarters in such a “glamorous” way. Even on the occasion of this banquet, would they be willing to let him “show off?”
The more hidden the other party was, the more likely they would play tricks tonight!
Bo Yueming suddenly came to a realization, and the look in his eyes changed. “Lin Zhong, I have something to tell you.”
. . . . . .
Five minutes later.
Bo Yueming took off his suit jacket and sat alone in the living room of the suite. He had just called Uncle Kai to confirm Pei Yi’s situation—
The kitten had stayed in his bedroom after eating dinner and dessert, and nothing had happened. In this case, if Bo Guancheng had plans today, they should be aimed at him rather than Pei Yi.
With such a guess in mind, Bo Yueming sat patiently on the sofa and waited.
Suddenly, the doorbell rang.
Bo Yueming raised his eyebrows slightly, deliberately put on his guide glasses, and slowly approached to open the door.
Lin Na, who was pushing a suit rack, stood outside. When she saw this familiar cold and handsome face, her heart subconsciously tightened, and she couldn’t help but show a trace of tension on her face.
Bo Yueming knew at a glance that there was trouble, but he pretended he couldn’t see. “Lin Zhong?”
In fact, Lin Zhong had a spare room key in hand, and had been deliberately dismissed by him.
Lin Na quickly put on an act. “Mr. Bo, hello, I’m a room service staff member from the top floor. Our manager heard about your unexpected situation in the banquet hall, and specially asked me to send a spare custom-made suit from our hotel. Would you like to try one on?”
A spare suit?
There was such a coincidence?
Bo Yueming saw through it without pointing it out, and walked in with one hand trailing against the wall. “En. Come in, ba.”
Lin Na didn’t expect to enter Bo Yueming’s room so easily. She was inwardly thankful, and at the same time, she didn’t forget to quickly push the suit rack and follow him in, closing the door behind her.
She wasn’t sure when Bo Yuming’s assistant would return, so she could only hurry up and finish the job.
Using the title of “room attendant,” Lin Na walked to the water bar. “Mr. Bo, is your assistant here? How about waiting for him to come back to try on the clothes?”
She paused, then asked intimately, “Let me get you something to drink first. Water?”
The other party had been mingling downstairs for so long. If he kept drinking wine, he would only become thirstier.
Bo Yueming felt that Lin Na’s voice sounded familiar, but couldn’t place it for the moment. He would give the other party enough opportunities to reveal her secrets. “Alright.”
Receiving such a response, Lin Na felt that everything was going too smoothly, but things had already developed to this point. She had no choice but to bite the bullet and complete this deal worth two million.
Lin Na poured some ice water in a wine glass and made sure to turn her head to peek at Bo Yueming. After confirming that the other party didn’t show any anomalies, she quickly drew the pills out of her pocket and tossed them in.
Of course, this scene accurately fell into Bo Yueming’s eyes.
Lin Na picked up the water glass and mixed it vigorously. The pills melted extremely quickly in the water and disappeared completely within a few seconds.
Due to her nervousness, many drops of water scattered on the countertop.
Lin Na casually wiped them twice and brought the glass of water to Bo Yueming with a smile. “Mr. Bo.”
Bo Yueming took the drugged glass of ice water, and lowered his eyes with a smile—
Bo Guancheng did not show up or speak during the entire process, which “dispelled” the suspicions of many guests. Then he used Lin Zhong’s status as his assistant to stain his suit, expecting that he could only come to the suite to wait for a replacement under such circumstances. He even guessed that Lin Zhong, having “done something wrong,” would go out to find and purchase a suit in person, leaving him alone.
Finally, he bought off the “hotel room attendant” in an attempt to force him into a drug trap.
What else could the drugged water do?
Thinking about it, after the “business” was done, the woman before him would either frame him for rape, or obtain images of his gaffe.
In the end, they wanted to discredit him!
It would be best if this incident would affect the reputation of Bo Group, as well as the shareholders’ opinions of him, and ultimately cut off the possibility of him returning to group headquarters for good.
Bo Yueming had to admit that Bo Guancheng had set up this series of traps very well, but unfortunately, the other party didn’t know—
His eyes were already healed!
And the moment Lin Na was delivered to the door, the situation had completely reversed!
Seeing that Bo Yueming didn’t move, Lin Na asked, “Mr. Bo?”
As soon as she spoke, Bo Yueming pulled her onto the sofa and asked in a low voice, “What is that scent on you?”
Lin Na stared at the handsome face that was so close at hand. Hearing his low tone, she felt that her heart was beating too fast.
The face in front of her was so impeccably superior that Lin Na had to admit that if she wasn’t doing this for “business,” she would still be willing to spend a moment with him.
“Mr. Bo, what do you smell?”
Lin Na subconsciously softened her tone, quietly trying to get close to Bo Yueming.
Since working as a hotel room attendant, she had been forced to reduce the amount of perfume she sprayed on due to work requirements, but she didn’t expect that Bo Yueming, who couldn’t see, had such a keen sense of smell.
This scent brought a sense of deja vu, connecting the memory points in his mind to form a line.
Bo Yueming recalled the disgusting memory at the resort, and suddenly threw the drugged ice water into Lin Na’s face.
The sudden change made Lin Na’s breath catch.
In the next second, Bo Yueming viciously grabbed her jaw. “Bo Guancheng asked you to drug me, didn’t he? How many times do you think this clumsy trick can be used on me?”
How could it be!
Wasn’t Bo Yueming blind? How could he know?
Lin Na’s eyes widened in disbelief, her face instantly turning pale with panic and pain.
While holding Lin Na down to prevent her from escaping, Bo Yueming made a phone call and then took off the guide glasses that were getting in the way.
Those distinctive eyes were full of frost, like a blue glacier that would not melt for thousands of years. Even in a motionless state, it could still impress upon people a terrifying aura that was enough to swallow lives when it collapsed.
Lin Na was completely frozen from head to toe, and it was like her body had fallen into an ice cellar. Even the water droplets splashed on her face were burrowing through her skin in the cold air.
Now that the matter had been revealed, she wanted to run away, but she couldn’t break free of Bo Yueming’s restraint.
The electronic door beeped again.
Lin Zhong quickly entered with driver Lao Fu. “Mr. Bo!”
As early as in the elevator, Bo Yueming had realized that something wasn’t right. He deliberately had Lin Zhong leave first, in order to let the forces in the dark relax their vigilance and show themselves.
Bo Yueming said coldly, “Find something to tie her up first!”
Lin Zhong and driver Lao Fu quickly complied. They took the bathrobe bag and towels from the bathroom, quickly and accurately binding Lin Na’s hands and feet and gagging her mouth.
Driver Lao Fu was completely obedient to Bo Yueming, and asked directly, “Second Young Master, what should we do next? Shall we settle accounts with Bo Guancheng now?”
“It’s not urgent.”
Bo Yueming knew for sure that Bo Guancheng would do something next, so he spoke coolly, “Lin Zhong, nobody will break into this suite for the time being. You stay here and keep an eye on this woman, and remember to check the master bedroom. There may be surveillance equipment.”
“Lao Fu, we can’t stay at the banquet. Let’s go out the back door of the hotel and go back first.”
Firstly, to keep Bo Guancheng from having room to maneuver.
And secondly, to give Bo Guancheng and everyone in the banquet hall a false message, causing them to mistakenly think that Bo Yueming was “delayed” tonight.
Bo Yueming would still settle this account thoroughly, but not now, not tonight!
Since Bo Guancheng wanted to ruin him, then of course he had to return the gift with interest!
Lin Na, who had collapsed on the ground, whimpered, almost crying with regret.
Bo Yueming regarded her with extreme disgust, and seemed to have thought of something interesting. “Giving me drugs? That is actually a good idea.”
He had been worried about not knowing how to confess everything to Pei Yi at home.
That being the case, why not take advantage of this “special opportunity” to test and clarify the kitten’s intentions?
. . . . . .
The sparkling water made a crisp sound when the cap was opened.
Pei Yi looked at the time on his phone, gearing up and ready to make trouble.
He couldn’t quit his alcohol addiction, but he didn’t dare to challenge his meager drinking capacity.
So when Uncle Kai wasn’t paying attention, he sneakily took a bottle of sparkling water from the refrigerator, and then found a bottle of red wine with the lowest alcohol content from the wine cabinet before quickly walking back to the room.
The last time he had dinner with Zhang Shunzhi and the others, the wine-flavored lemon sparkling water gave Pei Yi new inspiration—
Sparkling water with wine!
As long as there was a tiny bit of wine to enjoy, that was enough!
In the past, Pei Yi would certainly have been the first to complain: How could he mix these two together? What a waste of good wine!
But now, Pei Yi couldn’t wait to applaud himself: It tastes like alcohol but won’t make you drunk, perfection!
Pei Yi remembered what Bo Yueming said before going out, so he only dared to pour a thin layer at the bottom of the glass, add a small half bottle of sparkling water, and carefully make a glass of sparkling wine for himself.
Fortunately, the first sip wasn’t bad, and he quickly drank the first cup with great enjoyment.
It was a pity that the taste of alcohol failed to satisfy Pei Yi’s addiction, and instead gave him the idea to “have another drink.” Just when he was hesitating over whether he should have another—
There was the sudden sound of particularly disordered footsteps outside the house, accompanied by the panicked voices of Uncle Kai and others.
Pei Yi immediately realized that something was wrong, so he casually hid the wine bottle beneath the table, opened the door, and walked out—
Lao Fu was hurriedly helping Bo Yueming into the small living room. The latter’s face was abnormally flushed, his steps were a little chaotic, and even his breathing was more rapid.
Pei Yi was shocked, and hurried forward. “Er-ge?”
Uncle Kai was anxious. “What’s going on, ah? Lao Fu!”
Lao Fu met Pei Yi’s gaze and hesitated for a few seconds before stuttering out, “Second Young Master was, was tricked and drugged at the banquet, so he h-had me bring him back! Lin Zhong is still there dealing with the aftermath.”
Pei Yi’s heart tightened.
Uncle Kai and Lao Fu sent Bo Yueming, whose sense of reasoning was about to “collapse,” back to the master bedroom. The former expressed anxiously, “I’ll hurry downstairs to get the phone and call a doctor!”
“Little Sir, watch over Second Young Master, we’ll be right back!”
Seeing that Uncle Kai had left in a panic, Lao Fu hastily chased after him, anxious that he would cause problems.
Pei Yi’s entire focus was on Bo Yueming, and he didn’t notice Lao Fu’s uneasiness at all. He quickly went to Bo Yueming’s side, his brow practically knit together—
Tonight was only the first time he had failed to come along. How could Bo Yueming have been plotted against?
Pei Yi looked at the other’s flushed and uncomfortable face, anxious and blaming himself. “I’ll pour you some water.”
As soon as he spoke, Bo Yueming leaned against Pei Yi, who had brought himself to his door. Then he turned over, pinning him to the bed.
