Stand-in Relationship - Chap 29
At the gaming table, He Yang played a few rounds at random, and then he didn’t continue.
Chi Yi squinted and leaned on the back of the chair, and said lazily, “Young Master He doesn’t play anymore?”
“Yeah.” He Yang got up, “I’ll go see Xiuzhu first.”
He Yang returned to the sofa and saw Shen Xiuzhu sitting alone in the corner, quietly eating cake.
Chi Yi and the others were smoking while playing cards. He Yang smelled the smoke in the room, frowned slightly, walked over to Shen Xiuzhu and said, “Would you like to go to the back for rest first?”
Shen Xiuzhu raised his head with a smile on his face, and said gently, “It’s okay.”
“Go and rest.” He Yang’s attitude became a little tougher.
Shen Xiuzhu had to get up and was sent to the back lounge by He Yang.
He Yang placed Shen Xiuzhu and then returned to the game room.
The phone was still left on the sofa. When He Yang saw the phone, he picked it up and unlocked the screen.
There were a lot of unread messages on the screen. He Yang clicked on the message list and flipped through it at will. It was all trivial matters, so he didn’t read it again.
There are still two figures trapped in the van, but the car has been severely squeezed and deformed, and the two people inside can’t get out.
The young man in the passenger seat closed his eyes in pain, his breathing became weaker and weaker, blood dripped down his forehead, and the watch dial on his left hand was broken.
And on the mountain road next to it, a fuel tanker drove slowly by.
There was only one accident on the driveway, but just as the tanker went through the exact same corner, the tire slipped and fell from the same spot on the driveway.
The truck kept rolling over and fell off the cliff.
But under the cliff, there is already a deformed van.
Until the oil tanker fell heavily not far from the van, there was a sudden loud noise——
The car exploded.
The ground trembled for a while, the flames swept away instantly, and bright flames illuminated the mountains.
Even the black van next to it was caught in the flames and was instantly swallowed by the flames.
The fire was burning, and there was already a sea of flames near the truck. The thick smoke dyed the sky black, and even passers-by outside the mountains and forests felt the loud noise.
Someone stopped and took out his mobile phone to shoot in the direction of the distant mountains and forests.
“Hurry up! Come and see the explosion!”
“It’s on fire—”
Passers-by stand outside the mountain forest from a distance, holding their mobile phones high at the picture of the burning forest.
But those people just took pictures with their mobile phones, and no one called the police.
The game room was lively and lively, and the laughter and booing never stopped.
A group of people played until the afternoon, then stopped to eat outside.
The dining room was prepared on the deck outside. He Yang first went to the lounge inside and brought Shen Xiuzhu out.
Shen Xiuzhu found a rest chair and sat down, He Yang handed over a cup of hot water, “Remember to take your medicine later.”
“Okay.” Shen Xiuzhu smiled and took a sip from the cup.
There are a lot of rest tables on the deck, but everyone else consciously went to the other side to eat the buffet, and didn’t come to disturb He Yang and Shen Xiuzhu.
Shen Xiuzhu ate slowly, but He Yang didn’t eat, so he accompanied Shen Xiuzhu.
After a while, Jiang Lin called.
Jiang Lin quickly asked, “Brother, are you at home? My dad has a document for me to pass it to you.”
“Still on the houseboat.” He Yang said calmly, “Come to the company tomorrow and give it to me.”
“Okay.” Jiang Lin responded, suddenly thought of something, and quickly said, “That’s right, brother.”
“My sister-in-law has been unable to get through today.” Jiang Lin was a little worried.
Before, his sister-in-law told him that he would go to the stockade to play today, but the stockade was a bit remote, so he told his sister-in-law to call him to report to him that he was safe when he was in the stockade.
But he didn’t receive a call from his sister-in-law today, and he called his sister-in-law twice, but he didn’t get through.
Jiang Lin explained it to He Yang and worried: “Sister-in-law didn’t answer the phone, could something happen?”
He Yang listened to the voice on the other end of the phone, but still said in a cold tone: “He is an adult, what can happen?”
“But sister-in-law he—”
However, before Jiang Lin’s words were finished, He Yang suddenly heard a violent cough from the person beside him.
“I still have something to do here, so I’ll hang up first.” He Yang hurriedly hung up the phone, leaned over quickly, put one hand on Shen Xiuzhu’s back and patted it lightly, helping him go smoothly.
After a while, Shen Xiuzhu finally calmed down and said softly, “It’s alright…”
Shen Xiuzhu’s voice was still a little weak, and because he had just coughed, his eyes were a little red, and he looked sickly and weakly.
The wind picked up on the deck, Shen Xiuzhu shrank, lowered his head and coughed a few times, it seemed a little cold.
He Yang took off his coat and put it on Shen Xiuzhu and said, “Go back inside first.”
Shen Xiuzhu nodded, put on his coat, and went back to the boathouse to rest.
On the deck outside, the rich second generation was still playing wildly, and it didn’t take long for them to return to the game room to play cards.
Until the evening, the lively noise in the houseboat did not stop.
He Yang stayed at the gambling table for a long time, and the chips he won back were so many that the table could not be stacked.
“Young Master He is so lucky! I’m going to lose everything today!”
“Come again! I don’t believe that Young Master He can always win!”
At the gaming table, a few people were chatting casually, and before they knew it, the topic returned to Xu Chengyan.
“Young Master He, it’s almost twelve o’clock, won’t Yanyan be back yet?”
“Isn’t there the last half an hour? Mr. He said that it is five days, and he will definitely be back today!”
He Yang leaned back lazily on the back of the chair and didn’t care about the sounds around him, he just took out his phone and checked the time.
It may be because he recently passed the weather forecast of Anshi, so the mobile phone automatically pushed a news about Anshi.
[This morning, there were two consecutive car accidents on the same road section in Anshi, it is suspected that the road surface——]
He Yang glanced at it and crossed out the news without even reading the title.
He Yang stacked the chips in the middle of the gaming table and said slowly, “Continue to follow.”
And just as the cards were being dealt, He Yang suddenly noticed the sound of the phone vibrating.
He Yang picked up the phone and saw that Xu Chengyan was calling.
Someone next to me came over curiously, saw that the phone note displayed “Xu Chengyan”, and said in surprise: “It’s Yanyan’s phone! Here we come!”
Chi Yi, who was not far away, heard it and coaxed: “Quick pick up, quick pick up! Young master He! Today is the fifth day!”
He Yang leaned on the sofa lazily and pressed the switch button.
It’s just that a strange male voice came from the other end of the phone——
“Hello, are you a family member of Mr. Xu Chengyan?”
