After Playing the Fool and Marrying the Blind Villain [Transmigration] - Chap 75
Do you want me?
Having such a straightforward and touching invitation thrown out like this, Bo Yueming’s mind drew a rare blank.
He instinctively captured the lips of the person in his arms, and kissed him for a long time before he was rational enough to speak. “I want, of course I want—”
The never before heard low, hoarse tone was impulsive but even more restrained. “But you still have a fever and your arm is injured. You can’t mess around.”
Pei Yi pressed against him again. His cheeks were a little hot. “But I want you.”
He had already thought it through. The two of them would reach this point sooner or later, and now that they were one hundred percent invested, there was no need to distinguish “sooner or later” so clearly.
“Er-ge, just be careful.”
Pei Yi intermittently kissed Bo Yueming’s eyebrows, the tip of his nose, his lips, and his Adam’s apple, using the most sincere and clumsy method to attract his full attention.
“I’m not afraid of pain, and I know you won’t hurt me…..wu.”
His unfinished temptation was lost in a kiss.
Bo Yueming’s breathing was rapid, but there was a subtle coolness on his lips and tongue, like a turbulent sea sweeping in, wrapping his lover in his scent.
Pei Yi was only stunned for a second or two, and immediately clenched the collar of the other’s pajamas with his uninjured left hand, responding and giving him the most basic sense of security.
Their blending breaths swirled with heat, like a whirlpool suddenly appearing on the surface of the sea, sucking them into the abyss together.
The kiss ended.
Pei Yi realized that the two of them had changed their positions unconsciously. He looked up at Bo Yueming with faint longing at the tips of his eyes.
Bo Yueming avoided his injured right arm, leaning over to kiss his lover’s soft red lips. “Are you sure? Tomorrow is Monday, don’t you have to go to work?”
Pei Yi hooked Bo Yueming’s arm with his left hand and leaned forward to lightly rub the tip of his nose, joking slyly, “In any case, I can ask for sick leave. Maybe it could partly count as a work-related injury?”
Bo Yueming was puzzled. “Work-related injury?”
Pei Yi said seriously, “En. As one of the representatives of YWY, I expressed my willingness to accept the invitation for a friendly discussion with a GM shareholder.”
Bo Yueming kissed him again. “Where did you get such a glib tongue?”
Pei Yi didn’t see any unease or nervousness in his eyes, and he became increasingly eager. “Er-ge, I’ve really, truly thought about it—”
“I want to have you completely, just as you have me completely.”
Bo Yueming tilted his head and rubbed his earlobe. “Call me something else, what did you call me on WeChat today?”
Thinking of that call, Pei Yi felt even hotter all over.
Bo Yueming began to move his hands, and asked him coaxingly, “You called it so smoothly when we first met. Why do you refuse to call me that way now that we’re getting along with each other?”
Pei Yi was so excited that his breath shook, and his heated brain was dizzy. “In the past, I called it out for the outsiders watching. It was a joke, it doesn’t count.”
Bo Yueming continued to provoke him. “Then what about now?”
Pei Yi moaned in a broken tone, tightly grabbing Bo Yueming’s arm again.
He barely managed to grasp his last bit of reasoning in his dizziness, looking into those eyes that held a hint of provocation amidst pure love.
“Husband, want me now.”
In the end, Bo Yueming couldn’t resist the invitation. The last string of restraint suddenly broke, and he instantly hurtled toward the edge of his control.
Pei Yi gasped, and fell into an earth-shattering kiss.
Desire climbed higher and higher, occupying their entire world.
. . . .
. . . . . . .
When Pei Yi woke up in a daze, his head was still dizzy and he couldn’t tell north from south or east from west.
Upon making a sound, Pei Yi was taken aback by the hoarseness of his voice, and there was a trace of confusion in his sleepy eyes. Was this his voice? How did it get like this?
Bo Yueming returned with a glass of water. He saw that his lover had finally woken up naturally, and couldn’t help but speed up his pace.
Pei Yi belatedly realized that his throat was a little hot, and stared straight at the glass of water in his hand.
Bo Yueming helped his silly lover sit up, and passed over the water. “Come on, drink some water first.”
Pei Yi gulped it all down vigorously, and didn’t feel that he had gained some sobriety until he drank the entire glass of warm water.
Bo Yueming at the side took his temperature and frowned. “You still have a slight fever. Are you feeling uncomfortable?”
Pei Yi shook his head, then nodded again. “It’s normal to feel dizzy after just waking up. What time is it, Er-ge?”
Bo Yueming replied, “Three o’clock in the afternoon.”
Pei Yi was startled. “T-Three o’clock?”
He automatically calculated the time in his mind, then straightened up without thinking about it, an inexplicable smugness in his eyes.
“Er-ge, you—” That’s not good, ah.
Pei suddenly recalled that process that was almost fierce enough to make a person pass out.
Where wasn’t it good? It was obviously very good!
He changed his words in the middle of the sentence, the smugness in his eyes undiminished. “Hey, it looks like I’m pretty good too.”
Bo Yueming raised his eyebrows. “Pretty good? Where are you pretty good?”
Pei Yi’s self-confidence continued to increase, and he felt that his head wasn’t so dizzy anymore. “We did that kind of thing early in the morning, and now I woke up at three in the afternoon. Isn’t that enough to prove that my physical fitness is superb?”
Bo Yueming sighed and picked up his phone. “Look for yourself.”
Pei Yi lit up the phone screen. There was a string of numbers on it—
Tuesday, 3:07 p.m.
Pei Yi’s smug expression froze instantly, and he even faintly doubted life.
It wasn’t Monday?
But three o’clock in the afternoon on Tuesday?
He fell unconscious for nearly a day and a half?
Bo Yueming held back a small smile, and leaned closer to whisper, “There’s a kitten, ah, who was attracted so intensely and cried out so wantonly that it was too sleepy to wake up.”
The blood rushed back to Pei Yi’s brain in an instant, and he was too ashamed to speak. When he lowered his eyes in avoidance, he realized that there was a small needle mark on the back of his hand—
Although Bo Yueming had been careful enough in restraining himself, he had been restrained for a long time, after all, and once he indulged, he was a bit excessive.
Pei Yi, who was already suffering from a low-grade fever, grew hotter afterwards, and no matter how much he was called, he fell into a drowsy sleep. Bo Yueming could only ask a private doctor to give him an antipyretic injection.
Pei Yi came to terms with reality and his ego took a hit. His face flushed red, and his head became dizzy again.
He lay back down, pa, and simply pulled the quilt over his head like a shrunken kitten. “Don’t talk to me. I’m, I’m a little embarrassed.”
“What’s there to be embarrassed about between you and me?”
Bo Yueming patted his little head through the quilt. “Since you’re awake, you should at least get up and eat something first. You can’t leave your stomach empty for so long.”
After being reminded, Pei Yi indeed felt hungry.
He revealed his eyes again, and said with the innate stubbornness in his bones, “Then you’re not allowed to talk about it outside.”
Being made comatose for a day and a half?
If Li Yuan found out, he would laugh at him to death!
“I’ll never speak out about anything that happens between us.” Bo Yueming leaned closer and kissed his forehead. “Besides, you have a fever. Uncle Kai only just went to bed. He was frightened about your wound being inflamed.”
“I kid you not.”
Pei Yi managed to recover a bit of confidence, and got up, unspeakably sore. “Er-ge, I’m hungry.”
Bo Yueming responded softly, “There’s food prepared for you in the kitchen. Do you want to stay in the room to eat, or go downstairs?”
Pei Yi thought for a moment. “Go downstairs.”
To prove that he was all right — go downstairs! Must go downstairs!
Bo Yueming picked up the thick coat that had been prepared earlier. “Then put on your clothes and wash up. Do you want my help?”
Pei Yi paid no heed to the deep meaning in the last sentence, and just as he got off the bed, his legs suddenly went limp—
Bo Yueming seemed to have long expected this, and picked him up.
Pei Yi grabbed his shoulder with one hand, and came to a belated realization. “Don’t laugh! I, I injured my feet after being kidnapped, and I don’t have my strength.”
“En.” Bo Yueming played along with him earnestly. “You really don’t have strength.”
In the early hours of the morning before, he was struggling to crawl away, but because he had no strength, he was dragged back by him.
Pei Yi saw something wrong in Bo Yueming’s eyes. “I feel like you’re laughing at me inside.”
Bo Yueming denied it. “I’m not.”
Pei Yi didn’t believe him. “You’re really not?”
Bo Yueming helped him sit on the clean sink, and prepared the dental kit for him. “Wash up quickly.”
It was inconvenient for Pei Yi to lift his injured right hand, and the efficiency of doing things with his left hand was much slower.
Bo Yueming waited patiently for him to finish getting ready. “Should I carry you downstairs, or do you want to stay in the room to eat?”
“Go downstairs, go downstairs.”
Pei Yi took the initiative to hug him like a koala, and smashed the jar. “Anyway, it’s not the first time I’ve lost face. I’ll stick to you and order you around.”
Bo Yueming kissed his lover’s moist lips and took him out of the room.
Pei Yi felt a little worried when he saw Inspector still curled up in the cat nest. “Er-ge, have you checked on Inspector? I think he must have been scared that day.”
Fortunately, it knew to hide when it couldn’t fight, and listened to his words that day.
Bo Yueming replied, “Don’t worry. I asked Lin Zhong to take him to the pet hospital for a checkup, and there’s no major problem. It ate canned cat food normally last night.”
While talking, the two of them had already descended the stairs.
Uncle Kai was still resting in his room, and when he heard movement, he immediately rushed out to check on the situation. “Ah, Little Sir is awake?”
“Uncle Kai, go back and lie down,” Bo Yueming instructed in a low voice, both out of concern and the need to give the ‘embarrassed kitten’ some space.
He signaled to the other servants to bring the food. “Eat, ba.”
Pei Yi drank two or three mouthfuls of light millet porridge to fill his stomach, and didn’t move the topic to serious business until the discomfort of hunger was eased.
“Er-ge, you beat Bo Guancheng so hard in front of so many shareholders two days ago. Are you not pretending to be blind anymore?”
Bo Yueming nodded. “En, he knew about it before the shareholders’ meeting, otherwise he wouldn’t have united with other shareholders to put pressure on me.”
Pei Yi was puzzled. “How did he know? When did you leak it?”
Bo Yueming replied truthfully, “That day in the parking lot of the hospital. You went to have a private chat with Mr. Qin, and I saw Pei Huan when I returned to the car alone.”
Pei Yi frowned when he heard that name. “Why is it him again? Did you reveal it on purpose?”
Bo Yueming didn’t deny it. “I threatened Pei Ruzhang at the door of the hospital emergency room—as long as I am still in the Bo family and Pei Huan stays with the Pei family, they won’t get any benefits.”
Pei Huan should be very attached to the life of a young master provided to him by the Pei family. He didn’t want to be kicked out, so he could only find a way to make something happen to Bo Yueming in order to relieve this threat.
“I deliberately exposed my secret in front of him. He likely turned around and told Bo Guancheng in order to use someone else’s hand to deal with me.”
Little did he realize that everything was under Bo Yueming’s control.
Pei Yi couldn’t hold back his low curse.
Realizing that he was in front of his lover, he pretended to be well-behaved and civilized.
Bo Yueming had already seen through his ‘little wildcat’ character, and urged, “Quickly, eat.”
Pei Yi nodded, changing the subject. “Er-ge, did the other matters work out?”
“Cheng Yangshan and Bo Lihui can’t escape, and even the dog skin plaster relatives of the Cheng family will follow along.”
Bo Yueming wiped his hands with a wet towel and peeled fresh shrimp for his lover.
“I heard people say that when they were taken away the afternoon before yesterday, Cheng Yangshan and Bo Lihui were lashing out at each other.”
Hearing of this farce, Pei Yi scoffed coldly. “This father and son are really alike, a dog biting a dog, ah.”
Sure enough, they were both selfish people, and would protect themselves in the face of disaster.
Pei Yi took a bite of the shrimp that Bo Yueming handed over, and murmured, “Cheng Yangshan is very old. Can he be put in prison? He’ll find someone to figure out how to release him from jail, won’t he?”
Seeing that the kitten liked to eat these, Bo Yueming continued to peel. “The ‘connections’ he has accumulated over the years are all for the Bo family. At this critical point, who is willing to find connections for him to be released on bail?”
Even if the law expressly stipulated that old people who had reached the age of seventy-five may be given a lighter punishment, if Cheng Yangshan came out again, what would be left for him?
Pei Yi sighed. “Ai, he’s lived most of his life and still fell into a trap of his own devising.”
It was clearly Cheng Yangshan himself who married in when he was young, but in the end, he became dissatisfied as time went by.
With everything he was given by the Bo family, he was still dissatisfied and ungrateful, and blamed Old Mrs. Bo for restricting him.
If he really had the ability, he could abandon all of this and start his own business. He had lived most of his life as a cheap person who wanted to look valuable, but in the end, hadn’t he become a talking point and laughing stock for others?
But having said that, Old Mrs. Bo was worthy of being a heroine, boldly loving and boldly hating!
Pei Yi looked at Bo Yueming with a trace of real jealousy hidden in his teasing. “Er-ge, I really envy you for having such a good grandma.”
Bo Yueming corrected, “You have one too.”
Pei Yi responded with a laugh.
The villa door opened, and Lin Zhong walked in hurriedly. He looked at the two people sitting at the dining table, and his footsteps slowed.
“Mr. Bo, Little Sir, you’re both here, ah.”
Lin Zhong replied, “Oh, the police called to inquire about Little Sir’s situation, and want to know if it is convenient for him to go over as quickly as possible to give a statement.”
The police had sent someone to inquire the day before, but Pei Yi had still been in a state of “sleeping and getting an injection.”
“I’ll go over in a while.”
Pei Yi bit the spoon lightly, and looked at Bo Yueming, hesitating to speak. “Er-ge, didn’t you have to go to the company these two days?”
“Grandma specially gave me a vacation. It happens that Sister Zhong Yi came back, and Bo Jiao can also fill in.” Bo Yueming explained briefly, responding to his inner thoughts, “I’ll accompany you there later. I also want to report to the police.”
Pei Yi didn’t react for a moment. “What?”
Bo Yueming reminded him, “Did you forget? I told you the chances are eight out of ten that the car accident was man-made.”
Pei Yi’s expression suddenly changed, and he realized the strangeness at once. “Er-ge, you’re saying that Bo Guaneng ordered the car accident?”
Bo Yueming surmised, “Pretty much. It depends on how the police interrogate him and if he confesses.”
Pei Yi quickly finished the porridge, and when he got up, it implicated an unspeakable place. He immediately pursed his mouth in a frown.
Bo Yueming saw this and smiled. “What’s the hurry?”
Pei Yi whispered, “It’s all your fault.”
Bo Yueming inquired, “Who was the one who asked for it?”
Pei Yi was speechless.
Lin Zhong, who was eating this dog food, had nothing to say and felt that his existence was becoming more and more redundant!
. . . . . . .
As night fell, Pei Yi and Bo Yueming walked out of the inquiry room.
The leading police officer in charge of the case stopped. “Mr. Bo, Mr. Pei, don’t worry. Please rest assured that we will begin handing this over to the joint case once we have the first-hand evidence together.”
Li Gui had been arrested, and was stubborn. He refused to confess other things in order to mitigate his crime, but the call records on the mobile phone still betrayed him.
As for the two younger brothers who were brought by Li Gui, they said everything they had to say early on.
The evidence of that day’s kidnapping was solid, and Bo Guancheng, the mastermind, could not escape legal punishment.
It was just that the man-made car accident had yet to be verified and confirmed. After all, what police were most concerned with was evidence.
“Many thanks, apologies for the inconvenience.”
“You’re welcome, this is our duty.” The police officer wore a righteous expression. “Then I won’t see you off, you two go slowly.”
The two walked out of the police station lobby.
The cold, howling wind brought the night with it, and the temperature difference between inside and outside was so great that Pei Yi shivered.
Bo Yueming quickly took the scarf in his hand and re-tied it. “Are you cold?”
Pei Yi shrank his neck and smiled back. “I’m not cold, I’m warm.”
Bo Yueming reached out to touch his forehead. It seemed that the fever was gone. “Are you still dizzy? I’ll ask Lin Zhong to take you back to rest first.”
Pei Yi asked curiously, “Er-ge, where are you planning to go?”
Bo Yueming said bluntly, “To the hospital to see Bo Guancheng again. Grandma wants me to tell him something.”
The day before yesterday, Bo Yueming had lost control of his emotions for a moment and beat Bo Guancheng unconscious in full view. Perhaps he intended to use that sort of vicious character to “trick” him.
Thinking of this possibility, Pei Yi held his hand. “I’m not tired, I’ll go with you.”
Bo Yueming clasped his fingers tightly. “Okay.”
. . . . . . .
Imperial Capital Central Hospital.
Bo Guancheng was lying on the hospital bed. His face was bruised and swollen, and his complexion had turned sallow and unsightly in just two days.
Suddenly, the door opened.
Bo Guancheng glanced sideways, and after seeing the person clearly, he sat up from bed at once with a look of deep resentment on his swollen face.
“Bo Yueming, you still dare to come here!”
Why wouldn’t he dare?
Who was the loser here?
Pei Yi was inwardly sarcastic, but obediently stayed by Bo Yueming’s side without speaking.
Seeing the two of them approaching, Bo Guancheng suddenly picked up the fruit knife on the bedside table and hurled it. “Get lost!”
The fruit knife hit Pei Yi’s foot.
Bo Yueming’s expression immediately darkened, and he kicked it back under the bed. “Bo Guancheng, it’s come to this point, and you still want to hurt people?”
“Hurt people? What did I do?”
As if thinking of something amusing, Bo Guancheng patted his colorful face twice. “My face is like this because of you. Just wait, I’ll do an injury appraisal report!”
He would never let the person in front of him get away with it!
Thinking that he had caught him, the malice and arrogance in Bo Guancheng’s eyes reappeared. “You don’t deny what you did, do you?”
Pei Yi’s eyes shifted slightly, and he wished he could go up and punch Bo Guancheng in the face again—
One shouldn’t be merciful when dealing with this kind of person!
He had clearly done so many dirty things and wouldn’t say a word, but wanted to bite back when he got the opportunity?
Sensing his lover’s impulse and fury, Bo Yueming lightly rubbed his wrist.
Pei Yi noticed his silent comfort and managed to calm down.
Bo Yueming looked directly at the malicious Bo Guancheng and admitted fearlessly, “One must admit what they have done. The car accident you planned in the beginning and the kidnapping you planned that day are enough for you to spend the rest of your life in jail.”
Bo Guancheng gritted his teeth, which pulled at his wounds. “You…..”
“I came here to tell you that I don’t regret what I did to you, nor do I fear your subsequent prosecution methods. Between the two of us, whose actions are more severe? You have to know.”
Bo Guancheng’s smile froze slightly, and he couldn’t answer for a moment. How could he not know—
The matter between him and Brother Gui was more serious. As for the few punches Bo Yueming gave him, he could just use “justifiable self-defense” as an excuse.
“Bo Yueming, don’t think that with the protection of the Bo family, you can be lawless! You say I engineered the car accident? Where is the evidence? Do you have any? Do the police have any?”
He had always been very secretive in his work, and never did it himself.
If Bo Yueming had evidence about the car accident, Bo Guancheng wouldn’t be here, but facing a cold interrogation!
Seeing his ridiculous internal struggle, Bo Yueming calmly changed the subject. “Bo Guancheng, have you ever thought that Grandma’s favorite heir was actually you?”
Bo Guancheng was taken aback, and made a sound of disbelief.
“She once told me that your ability is better than your father’s, that you are tactful enough to conduct yourself in life, and merciless when necessary.”
Compared to Bo Yueming’s cold, unsmiling demeanor, Bo Guancheng, the eldest grandson, was the most suitable of the Bo family children to take over.
“My background would inevitably be criticized. Grandma told me long ago — if one day she really couldn’t handle it anymore, she would have you take over her position as chairman and let me assist you in handling affairs.”
Bo Guancheng suppressed his astonishment, and blurted out his denial, “Who do you think you’re bluffing? Would you be willing to help me?”
“Of course not.” Bo Yueming didn’t lie. “You and I don’t share the same worldviews. We would never get along.”
All these years, the reason he was willing to work in the company was to show respect for Old Mrs. Bo and not disappoint her.
Bo Yueming had never coveted the position of chairman of Bo Group, and had even thought about waiting until Bo Guancheng took over. He would resign on his own, preferring to manage GM together with his friend Yan Cen.
Bo Guancheng was still disbelieving. “Impossible, how could she leave the position to me? How could you not compete with me?”
Bo Yueming asked back, “How is it impossible? Think about your name.”
Bo Guancheng, ‘become crowned.’
Although this name was chosen by Cheng Yangshan with shameful intentions, in Old Mrs. Bo’s heart—
Back then, she truly did hope that Bo Guancheng could shoulder the family business and take over the ambition hidden deep in her husband’s heart.
It was a pity that Bo Guancheng’s thoughts grew increasingly crooked, completely disappointing her in the end.
Bo Guancheng shook his head, denying blindly, “Impossible! Don’t try to deceive me! The only grandson she favors is you! I’m just a decoration! A decoration!”
Pei Yi had already figured out the key points, and concluded, “If you’re just a decoration, given Old Mrs. Bo’s temper, would she have given you the chance to join Bo Group?”
She would have cut off Bo Guancheng’s hopes from the very beginning!
Bo Yueming put the facts in front of him. “The grandson of the Bo family, the young master of the Bo family, and before I graduated, you became the youngest general manager of the Bo family.”
“At the beginning, she held out a project worth nearly one billion, just to give you good experience when you had newly graduated. It didn’t even matter if you lost money. Is this not enough to make the matter clear?”
Bo Guancheng’s hands loosened and tightened where he held the blanket, and his expression looked as if he had been slapped several times.
Seeing his changing expression, Pei Yi shook his head in amazement and lament—
You left your biggest backer, and now you have to get along with that soft rice guy!
If Bo Guancheng hadn’t thought too much and had concentrated on accomplishing things, perhaps the position of chairman would have already been his today!
Bo Yueming didn’t want to continue interacting with him, so he quit while he was ahead. “I came here today to relay a message from Grandma — you’re on your own.”
With that said, he took Pei Yi and left.
The sound of the door closing knocked hard on Bo Guancheng’s heart, shattering his self-understanding.
Bo Guancheng only felt that he had been pushed into an endless abyss, waking up from a dream into a rapid freefall.
It turned out that Old Mrs. Bo valued him? He was favored before?
Bo Guancheng covered his face, letting the pain of his wounds wreak havoc.
He laughed wildly and frantically, and a gleam of water overflowed from between his fingers.
Bo Guancheng didn’t know what was going on in his heart. He only knew that it was too late now!
