After hanging up the phone, Xu Chenghao silently put the phone back on the bedside table and exited the ward, sitting pitifully on the bench outside.


This was different from what he thought… Doesn’t Jing Yicheng hate him the most when he wanders around in front of the female lead and steals all his heroes’ chances of saving beauty? This time, he had offered to avoid it and was willing to give him the opportunity, why did he suddenly ask him to wait?  

Did he want to find out what happened, or does he feel that his dignity has been hurt from his taking the initiative to back down?


There was always a foreboding feeling…


Ten minutes later, footsteps sounded in the corridor on time.
Xu Chenghao, who was thinking wildly, immediately returned to his senses.
With a little vigilance, he turned his head and looked in the direction of the sound.
He saw the three people coming.
Jing Yicheng was the first!

He was wearing a long black trench coat and leather boots.
His whole body was like a moving saber, with a sharp and cold blade.
When he strode, the cold wind swept through the air field.

Xu Chenghao consciously got up: “President Jing.”


Jing Yicheng glanced at him lightly, his deep and cold eyes betraying no emotions: “President Xu.” 


After the two sides said hello coldly, Xu Chenghao went straight to the point and said, “she’s inside.
Since you’re here, there’s nothing left for me to do, I’ll be leaving first.”


“Wait.” Jing Yicheng stopped him: “Aren’t you going to tell me the process?”


Xu Chenghao: “didn’t I say it all on the phone?”


“You don’t know why she fell on the side of the road? Don’t you know what happened to her?” Jing Yicheng’s expression was cold and his voice was calm, but when he asked these questions, he seemed to be interrogating him.


Xu Chenghao smiled: “I’m sorry, I really don’t know.”  

Jing Yicheng: “Then wait.”


Xu Chenghao: “…”

After going around, he was unable to escape.  

Xu Chenghao sat back on the bench and watched Jing Yicheng turn his head to communicate with the people behind him.
He guessed that the other party wanted to investigate the process to verify whether he was lying.

Xu Chenghao was sure that he didn’t lie, so he was confident during the waiting process, sitting upright without any guilt. 


Unexpectedly, Jing Yicheng did not enter the ward to take care of An Rouyu, but sat with him on the bench in the corridor, waiting for the men who had left to investigate to return.  


Xu Chenghao touched the leaves of the pepper seedlings and thought absently that the villain didn’t seem to care much about An Rouyu.
When he came to the hospital and learned of An Rouyu’s accident, he didn’t rush to look for his lover.That was weird.

As soon as the idea in his mind took shape, Xu Chenghao heard the person beside him asking lightly, “How is she now?”


Although he didn’t say the name, everyone present knew that he was talking about An Rouyu.

Xu Chenghao thought that he was waiting here, but pretending to be calm on the surface: “The doctor said that she was just tired and had some scratches on her body.
The point is that she is still not awake due to excessive use of sleeping pills.

After hesitating , Jing Yichen suddenly asked: “Does it hurt?”

Xu Chenghao’s alarm bells rang frantically: “it can’t compare with President Jing.”

Jing Yicheng lightly hooked the corner of his lips: “I don’t hurt.” 

Xu Chenghao: “It’s a coincidence, so do I.” 

The two men’s eyes connected for a moment mid air, and then separated quickly.The one looking ahead earlier continued to do so, and the one who was looking at the pepper seedlings looked at the pepper seedlings.  

The atmosphere seemed to drop to freezing point at this moment.
Even though they were sitting on the same bench, there was no interaction or communication at all, as if there was an invisible barrier in the air separating them from each other, and no one could see the other.  

There was a dead silence in the corridor.
Fortunately, the bodyguard who left came back soon and said in a low voice,  “We found out that Miss An ran away from the An family.
It is said that it was because her stepmother wanted to marry her to a 50-year-old boss as his third wife.
She also wanted to cook the rice1The idiom to cook rice here signifies the marriage.
If a man and a woman get married, it is like raw rice boiled to be cooked rice– It is permanent, cannot be undone.
The only option is to eat it, meaning accept it.
However, Miss An found out and ran away.”

“Because she was too flustered and exhausted, Ms.
An didn’t pay attention to the traffic lights and rushed into the road, and just fell in front of Mr Xu’s car which was passing by behind her.
Xu then called an ambulance to send her to the hospital.”

Xu Chenghao nodded in agreement and liked the phrase ‘passing’ he used very much.
That’s right, he was completely pulled in by the spare tire halo when he was passing by!  He should believe him now! 

Xu Chenghao, who was holding back his joy, had already picked up the little yellow duck’s beak flower pot and was ready to leave at any moment.  

After listening to the whole process, Jing Yicheng was silent for two seconds, then suddenly turned his head to Xu Chenghao and asked, “Why did you call me when you sent her to the hospital?”  

Xu Chenghao felt that he was taking advantage of the situation but still selling his good behavior: “Can’t Mr.
Jing really see what it means?”


Jing Yicheng raised his eyes: “Should I see it?”

Xu Chenghao smiled: “as the beneficiary, I think you should know better than anyone.”

Jing Yicheng’s lips were hooked with a smile.
Instead of responding to this sentence, he said to the bodyguard, “call Ruan chenxuan.”

When the bodyguard left, Jing Yicheng turned to Xu Chenghao again and said calmly, “I’ve never been the beneficiary.”

Xu Chenghao was  somewhat surprised, he didn’t expect that after he gave the villain a great opportunity to save the beauty, he handed it over to the male protagonist! And also quite meaningfully left a sentence that he was never the beneficiary.
What’s with this kind of rhetoric question that sees through love relationships? Why doesn’t the villain follow his own plot?!

Xu Chenghao felt as if the plot was about to get out of control, and the alarm bells in his heart suddenly sounded out loud.
He stood up and said, “No matter what, I don’t want to participate in anything related to An Rouyu anymore.
This is your love story and it has nothing to do with me.
I’m sorry I can’t cooperate with you again, goodbye.” 

He nodded politely, and when he was about to turn to leave, he noticed that Jing Yicheng’s eyes were a little surprised, his eyes were not on his face but moved down slightly, staring at his chest… chest? 

Xu Chenghao immediately lowered his head to look, and saw that the little yellow duck beak flowerpot he had been holding had unexpectedly arrived at the fruiting time, and it worked! A success! 

A red fruit similar to Chaotian pepper hangs on the green pepper seedlings, which makes people see this hard-earned and cherished fruit at a glance.

Xu Chenghao was stunned for a while, and his eyes instantly burst into a bright light, as if seeing the hope of life, he stared at this fruit with surprise and joy. 

He, the non-com, actually counterattacked!!!

At this moment, even Jing Yicheng could feel Xu Chenghao’s happiness and excitement, as if a pepper in the sky was such an important thing, and there were little pink flowers of joy rippling all over his body.   

At this moment, even Jing Yicheng could feel Xu Chenghao’s happiness and excitement, as if a Chaotian pepper was such an important thing, and little pink flowers of joy rippled all over his body.

Jing Yicheng narrowed his eyes slightly, remembering what he had guessed before– this flower pot was for An Ruoyu.

Or is this flowerpot actually not a gift? What Xu Chenghao really wants to give is the pepper he has personally cultivated?!

Although he didn’t want to suspect anything, but Xu Chenghao’s information for so many years was imprinted in his mind, Jing Yicheng clearly remembered that from his youth to before he withdrew from the marriage, Xu Chenghao had given numerous kinds of succulent plants or potted flowers to An Ruoyu.
Therefore, when he was the little yellow duck, he suspected that it was for An Rouyu.

Then, when he said before that he didn’t like An Rouyu and that he didn’t want to get involved with An Rouyu, it was all a lie!

There is a feeling of being deceived…

The friendship that was born from climbing out of the pit together instantly shattered, Jing Yicheng stared at Xu Chenghao, who was still oblivious and happily preparing to harvest the fruit, and suddenly struck first.

Xu Chenghao only felt a gust of cold wind passing in front of him, and then he took a closer look.
The Chaotian pepper that was originally hanging on the chili seedlings disappeared, and Jing Yicheng, who was standing opposite him, stepped back and looked at the Chaotian pepper that he had picked off by himself.

Xu Chenghao’s breath was slightly choked, and he took two nervous steps forward and questioned, “What are you doing!”

“Don’t come over! “It’s rare for Jing Yicheng to show a little smile on his face, but this smile is inexplicably evil at this moment:”Very nervous?”

Xu Chenghao’s face was tense, and his heart kept tightening as he played with chili peppers: “What are you trying to do!”

Jing Yicheng glared at him coldly: “If I ask you something, you have to answer truthfully.”


Xu Chenghao gritted his teeth: “you ask!”

Jing Yicheng: “Is this for An Rouyu?”

“No.” Xu Chenghao tried his best to suppress his emotions, “This is just an ordinary pepper!”

“Why are you so nervous about an ordinary morning Chaotian pepper?” Jing Yicheng pressed on step by step, “Did An Ruoyu give you the seeds or did you have some kind of agreement before?”

Xu Chenghao was about to vomit blood and said angrily, “I just think it is very important to me, this pepper has nothing to do with An Ruoyu!”

Jing Yicheng also responded coldly: “I don’t think a pepper without any meaning can make you care so much!”

Xu Chenghao suddenly choked, and for a moment was unable to refute.

When Jing Yicheng saw his reaction, he immediately showed a look of understanding:  “I was right, wasn’t I? It seems that the words you said before that you don’t like An Ruoyu were all false? Are you trying to fool me?!”

Xu Chenghao was about to vomit blood in depression, and said aggrievedly: “No, I said I don’t like her, I don’t like her, even if this chili has a meaning, it has nothing to do with her, it’s all my own business, can’t I have some fun of my own? Now? What’s wrong with me planting peppers!”


Jing Yicheng pressed: “Then you explain clearly what the meaning of this chili pepper is and why you are so nervous!”


Xu Chenghao: “…”


The question came to a dead end again, Xu Chenghao was so angry that he couldn’t say a word, and only stared at him with angry eyes.


Seeing him like this, Jing Yicheng was quiet for a moment, then suddenly raised his hand and put Chaotian pepper into his mouth, and ate it in two or three bites.

Eaten! Dropped! It’s finished!

At this moment, the word ‘eaten’ was like a huge thunder blasting Xu Chenghao’s head blank, and he didn’t even have a reaction.
After staring blankly for a while, his whole body was like a lit cannonball, and he was completely angry: “Jing Yicheng, you are fucking crazy!”

“What’s wrong with me growing peppers! Can’t I have some hobbies, some life and some other pursuits?! I’m a fucking parasite and can’t live without An Rouyu, right? Do you know how important this pepper is to me? I’m so fucking unlucky to have met you bastards!”

“Jing Yicheng, you are a lunatic!”

After roaring the last sentence, Xu Chenghao squeezed the little yellow duck beak flower pot in his hand, so close to smashing the flower pot on the other party’s disgusting face, but in the end, reason prevailed, and he angrily turned away, not wanting to look at the other party for a second time at all.

This is the first time Xu Chenghao has been angry with someone, and his state even went wild.
It completely subverted his previous image of a  modest gentleman.
Even Jing Yicheng, who was scolded, only reacted after he left, smashing his tongue and saying, “It’s so spicy.”
