Chapter 1530: Isn’t His Girlfriend Sun Jie?/ Sudden Call for Help
Chapter 1835: Isn’t His Girlfriend Sun Jie?
Also, as he is a postgraduate student like Sun Jie, they must have had a greater opportunity to come into contact with one another.
Fan Jinzhe first took out the postgraduate student’s file and looked at it carefully. He was disappointed at first glance, “He has been working for a few years?”
“Yeah, he is taking correspondence study only because his job requires it.” Xiao Biao nodded, “Why, is it not him?”
Fan Jinzhe looked at the one-inch photo on the file carefully and shook his head, “It is not him. He looks completely different. They are like poles apart, one is skinny and one is fat.”
“Oh, then look at the others. Maybe it’s the one who graduated?” Xiao Biao asked.
“En, let me look at the graduate again. It’s possible that he’s a graduate.” Fan Jinzhe opened the file of the graduated ‘Yang Ming’ and broke out into a sweat at one glance, “Why is this person a woman?”
“A woman?” said Xiao Biao dumbfoundedly. “I didn’t read through it. I just asked the people from the student union to bring me the files of everyone named Yang Ming in the school. I didn’t know the gender.”
“Forget it… Let’slLook at the last one. It’s probably not him too.” Fan Jinzhe shook his head helplessly.
“The last one is the famous Yang Ming of our school. Brother Zhe, have you really never heard of him?” Xiao Biao asked in confusion.
“I have really never heard of him.” Fan Jinzhe shook his head, “You also know, I rarely participate in school activities and I didn’t even participate in the art festival.”
“Maybe this person is the one you are looking for,” said Xiao Biao.
“It’s unlikely. His age does not really match. He’s only a junior.” Fan Jinzhe wondered. It is unlikely that Sun Jie would find a boyfriend several years younger than her, right?
“Like this…” Xiao Biao was unclear about Fan Jinzhe’s mention of age, so he just nodded his head in agreement.
“Eh?” Fan Jinzhe opened Yang Ming’s file. He was stunned, “Wait really? It’s really this kid?”
Although there was only a one-inch photo in it, Fan Jinzhe recognized Yang Ming at first glance. As the saying goes, ‘there is no mistaking it when two foes meet’. He recognized the man as his enemy Yang Ming.
“Well, Brother Zhe, you found the kid you were looking for?” Xiao Biao was stunned when he first heard Fan Jinzhe’s words, and then it turned into surprise! Looks like he had hit the jackpot this time. Brother Zhe would remember his good deeds!
Otherwise, Fan Jinzhe would not be grateful towards him if he did not find the person Fan Jinzhe was looking for even if he put in all of his effort. Fan Jinzhe would thank him in words but would forget him soon. This would not achieve any of the effects Xiao Biao was going for.
“Yes, that’s him. But why is he just a freshman? Also, is he the idol who had the highest cheers at the art festival?” Fan Jinzhe couldn’t believe his eyes. This was too outrageous. How can this person be Sun Jie’s boyfriend? A freshman and a postgraduate. There’s a huge age gap!
Although older woman-younger man love is getting popular nowadays, Sun Jie doesn’t look like the kind of person to be involved in a relationship like this.
“Yes, Brother Zhe, this is the guy. He received the highest cheers at the art festival. He previously performed a martial arts program and received endless applause. Then, under the strong demand of the audience, he performed a poetry recital with his girlfriend and received a strong response,” Xiao Biao explained.
“Girlfriend? Sun Jie?” Fan Jinzhe asked subconsciously.
“Sun Jie? Who is Sun Jie?” Xiao Biao was also dumbfounded.
“Didn’t you say he performed a poetry recital with his girlfriend?” Fan Jinzhe asked back.
“Yeah, that’s right?” Xiao Biao didn’t understand what Fan Jinzhe was saying.
“Isn’t Sun Jie his girlfriend? Didn’t he introduce her beforehand?” Fan Jinzhe asked strangely.
“Sun Jie? No, Yang Ming’s girlfriend is called Chen Mengyan. This is something the whole school knows. What’s the matter? You didn’t know this.” Xiao Biao also looked at Fan Jinzhe, baffled.
“Chen Mengyan? Isn’t it Sun Jie?” Fan Jinzhe frowned.
“It’s Chen Mengyan. She’s also from our school. She’s a freshman in the economics department,” said Xiao Biao. “If you are not in a hurry, I’ll go back and find the video of the art festival last time and send it to you by email later. You will know it when you see it.”
“Okay… I can receive videos on my phone. Just send it to my 139 phone mailbox.” Fan Jinzhe nodded his head.
“Brother Zhe, is there anything else to do? If not, let’s go and have a meal together?” Xiao Biao asked.
“I can’t have a meal with you today. I still have a class to attend. I’ll treat you next time. You helped me so much, so why should you invite me for a meal?” Fan Jinzhe laughed.
“That’s fine. Let’s talk about it another day.” Xiao Biao did not really want to have a meal with Fan Jinzhe. He just wanted to enhance their relationship. He nodded his head, “Then I will go back to work on the video. I’ll clip everything about Yang Ming and send it to you.”
“Okay, sorry for troubling you.” Fan Jinzhe nodded.
Fan Jinzhe sent away Xiao Biao and returned to the classroom. The class was almost starting and the lecturer had arrived. The students studying in the classroom had also started to change the books on their tables to textbooks and were ready to start the class.
Seeing that the seat in front of Zhao Ying was occupied by a girl with a pockmarked face, Fan Jinzhe frowned. Who is it that is not perceptive? I just left for a while and someone else has already taken my seat.
“There’s no one seating here right? Can I sit down here?” Fan Jinzhe walked to the pockmarked face girl, pointed to the seat next to her and asked.
“Ah!” The pockmarked face girl looked up, and was surprised to see the handsome Fan Jinzhe. Could it be that he likes me and wants to pursue me?
Thinking of this, the pockmarked face girl felt a sudden excitement in her heart. She knew clearly what she looked like. But in the College of Science and Technology which did not have many girls, she was considered to be average and had quite a number of suitors.
However, she looked down on those who were pursuing her. The ones who she liked always pursued prettier girls. This time, Fan Jinzje, a handsome man with good conditions, wanted to hit on her. She was ecstatic!
However, out of a girl’s reservation, she still deliberately said, “You want to sit here? I’m booking a place for my good friend here.”
Fan Jinzhe heard the girl’s coquettish voice and immediately felt shivers up his spine. In his heart, he thought, I’m so unlucky. Who would want to sit with you? If I didn’t want to pursue Zhao Ying, why would I even bother sitting here?
He frowned and wanted to change to an empty seat closer to Zhao Ying. But he heard the pockmarked face girl say, “However, I don’t think she’s coming today. Why don’t you sit here then.”
Fan Jinzhe did not want to sit there after hearing the girl’s flirty tone. He did not expect her to stand up and indicate him to sit down before he could even answer her question.
Fan Jinzhe was in a dilemma. To sit down, but I don’t like this girl, or to not sit down, well she already stood up. If he didn’t take the seat, it seemed like he was unreasonable. After all, he was the one who asked her first.
Fan Jinzhe hesitated a little but still sat down.
The girl waited for Fan Jinzhe to start hitting on her once he sat down. She waited for a long time until the professor in front had already started teaching, but Fan Jinzhe still did not take any action and she started to become impatient.
As the saying goes, ‘you should strive for your own happiness’. This is an opportunity that is hard to come by. I need to grab it! This fellow seems shy. It appears that he has used up all his courage to take initiative to request a seat here. He then felt awkward to speak to me. I should be considerate of him.
Pretending to be a generous person, the pockmarked face girl said, “Are you a postgraduate student in the economics department? Why haven’t I seen you before?”
“Oh… I just transferred in not long ago.” Fan Jinzhe saw the pockmarked face girl trying to hit on him and was reluctant to answer her. He then thought of how everyone here were classmates and they might sit next to each other in the future. If I ignore her, I will appear as too prideful. Zhao Ying is sitting behind me. It will be bad if she thinks negatively of me because of this. I need to answer her.
Chapter 1836: Sudden Call for Help
“Oh, that’s why. I’m Li Xiaomei. What’s your name?” The pockmarked face girl introduced herself somewhat shyly.
“Fan Jinzhe.” Fan Jinzhe replied lightly. He thought, “Xiaomei ? I think you should be called Li Xiaoma instead. Your face is so pockmarked that it looks like a rough steamed bread. You’re affecting my eyesight!”
“Wow, your name sounds like a Korean star!” Pockmarked face Li Xiaomei fangirled, “Are you Korean?”
“No,” said Fan Jinzhe. Why are you talking so much?
“Then are you an ethnic Korean?” Li Xiaomei continued to ask.
“No!” Fan Jinzhe was a little furious, “It’s class time. Shouldn’t we focus?”
“Oh, yeah that’s right!” When Li Xiaomei heard Fan Jinzhe’s words, she thought that Fan Jinzhe was the kind of good student who had good morals and achieved good results. She stopped talking, but then smiled and said, “Okay, let’s focus in class for now. We’ll talk after class.”
I’m not going to talk nonsense with you! Fan Jinzhe frowned secretly.
Not long later, Fan Jinzhe’s mobile phone vibrated twice. When he entered the classroom, he deliberately set his phone to vibration mode so he would not be discriminated against by the others again. Fan Jinzhe took out his mobile phone and glanced at it. It was an email from Xiao Biao
Fan Jinzhe opened his inbox and found that Xiao Bao had sent him a video as a compressed MP4 file. Xiao Biao was so thoughtful and was afraid that another file type would not be supported by his phone.
Fan Jinzhe put on his earbuds, clicked the play button and started to watch the video.
The recording was not very clear. After all, the student union was not a professional photography organization. Their equipment was just a DV , so it did not have a good angle. But Yang Ming’s face could clearly be seen!
Are you kidding me? It really is this kid! If the one-inch photo was still unclear, Fan Jinzhe was completely certain after watching the video. The person in the video was the same person he saw in the Song Jiang International Hotel’s private room that day.
Moreover, he spoke in the same way and the same ridiculing tone as he did that day! Hearing this guy humiliating Ren Jianren and Li Jiasheng, Fan Jinzhe was even more annoyed. If I knew that this guy does not keep to his promises, would I even believe him?
Whatever vengeful spirit or anything was just nonsense. It just frightened me and even made me waste so much money! This kid is so good at telling lies that he can just talk nonsense at any time.
This was just the video of Yang Ming performing martial arts so Fan Jinzhe didn’t take a closer look. After a few glances, he clicked on another video of Yang Ming and Chen Mengyan performing a poetry recital together.
“En? It really isn’t Sun Jie?” Fan Jinzhe murmured with a frown. Could it be that Sun Jie deliberately sought this Yang Ming to tease me? In fact, he is not Sun Jie’s boyfriend.
In such a public event in school, such a thing like holding hands with his girlfriend should be known by Sun Jie. Under such conditions, the only thing he could think of was that Sun Jie, that shrewd woman, purposely sought Yang Ming to make a fool out of him.
No way. I thought Yang Ming was Sun Jie’s boyfriend. Looks like this is not the case. I was nearly fooled by it.
Fan Jinzhe watched this video, and naturally believed that Yang Ming’s girlfriend was definitely Chen Mengyan. Even Xiao Biao said so, so there was absolutely nothing wrong with it.
Since this is the case, I could take this chance to take revenge on Yang Ming while disregarding Sun Jie’s face. This Chen Mengyan looks so beautiful. Ai, she has such a huge age gap with me. I should remain focused on pursuing Zhao Ying instead.
Otherwise, he could have caused some troubles for Yang Ming by making a guest appearance as his love rival. However, this might let Zhao Ying misunderstand and negatively impact him.
Yang Ming message Zhao Ying but did not receive a reply after a long time. He only spoke a few words to Zhao Ying but there was nothing from Zhao Ying’s side.
Yang Ming naturally knew what Zhao Ying was thinking about. He knew she was struggling deep inside her heart and it was hard for her to make a choice. He couldn’t blame her. After all, online dating needed to happen naturally and it was not as reliable as dating in reality. Zhao Ying was also undetermined if he was the netizen, or “There’s No True Love In This World” was too similar to Yang Ming and made her feel the same way.
“What’s wrong? Why aren’t you talking anymore?” Yang Ming sent another message to ask.
Zhao Ying felt the vibration of the phone, took it out and looked at it. It was a message from “There’s No True Love In This World”. She hesitated, and replied, “I’m in class. Talk to you later.”
“Okay, you focus in class. I won’t bother you anymore.” Yang Ming didn’t rush her and gave her some time to think and choose.
At this moment, Yang Ming had a feeling of stealing his girlfriend from himself. It excited and worried him at the same time. If he could steal his girlfriend, other people could too.
However, Yang Ming relaxed after a little hesitation. The only reason why he could do it was that Zhao Ying liked Yang Ming and his online personality gave her the same vibes as he did in real life. This kind of psychological sixth sense was impossible to be brought on by other people.
So Yang Ming was not worried that someone else would steal her away. It was because no matter how a person acted, it was impossible for them to pretend to be someone else. There would always be a slight difference between them. This slight difference could lead to completely different results.
Since Zhao Ying had said so, Yang Ming minimized their chat window and casually looked at the webpage. The recent local news online was about the Song Jiang International Hotel’s acquisition of the Douglas Vast Hotel. Some so-called ‘experts’ came out to analyze the inside story of this merger and acquisition case.
The imaginations of these ‘experts’ were so wild. Even inside stories, which Yang Ming himself did not even know, were also ‘dug’ out by them. Their analysis was also well argued. It included spies, traitors, internal transfer of power etc, and seemed like a business war novel.
“Wow, isn’t this too unreliable?” Yang Ming watched this ordinary merger and acquisition case being analyzed by so many insiders and sighed. If these people did not start to write web novels, it would bury their talents.
Yang Ming dared to guarantee that if these people wrote web novels, their novel would definitely be at the peak of urban novels. Other genres like officers, rebirth or romance had to make way for this business war.
But fortunately, no one had guessed the real reason behind this acquisition. Yang Ming just wanted to scare Caique temporarily, but he didn’t expect the merger to be completed.
Even if someone knew the truth and said it, nobody would believe it. This was how things would be for now. No one would believe the truth. The fabricated myths that were unreliable were considered to be the truth.
Yang Ming shook his head and closed the webpage. He would just let them continue fabricating and not get rid of any rumors. The more hyped up the news was, the higher the popularity of the Song Jiang International Hotel would be and it would save advertisement costs.
The phone on the table rang, and Yang Ming glanced at the phone number. It was an unfamiliar number. Yang Ming answered the call and a rushed voice sounded from the other side of the phone, “Brother Yang… Is it Brother Yang?”
“It’s me. Who are you?” Yang Ming frowned. The voice over the phone was a little familiar. But the tone had changed which might be due to tension. This made Yang Ming unable to distinguish who it was.
“Brother Yang, I’m Wang Mei,” said the girl over the phone.
“Wang Mei… Oh, it’s you!” Yang Ming was stunned for a moment. He then remembered who this Wang Mei was. She was Huang Lele’s good friend and Zhang Bing’s lover.
“Brother Yang, are you free to speak now?” Wang Mei sounded nervous.
“What’s wrong? Just tell me if something has happened.” Yang Ming frowned. Why did Wang Mei call me? I don’t seem to be in touch with her, right?
“Brother Yang, something happened to Zhang Bing,” said Wang Mei breathlessly. “Brother Yang, please save him.”
