Chen Shiming’s tone also eased.
“Can he just touch a modified car? He needs his driver’s license before touching it.”

“Old Zhang, you go to the kitchen to arrange things.” Chen Jianhong said, “Shiming, call your brother back.
Apologize and let him come back for dinner.”

The outside of the villa was quiet.
The quiet trail was empty and there weren’t even cars passing by.

Chen Qizhao walked to the place where Shen Yuhuai had dropped him off last time.
The inexplicable irritability in his heart had dissipated.
He picked up his phone and sent a message to Zhang Yazhi, asking her to remember to eat the medicinal food at night.

The ringtone of his phone rang.
It was a call from Chen Shiming.

Chen Qizhao didn’t want to have another unnecessary quarrel with Chen Shiming so he rejected it and stood on the side of the road alone.

He raised his sleeves slightly and smelled his sleeve.
“Does he have a dog nose? How can he smell this?”

After a while, he undid the coat he had put on haphazardly, letting the evening wind dissipate the wine.

Shen Yuhuai arrived at this location and saw a young man standing on the side of the road in the distance.
He was alone and quiet.
Inexplicably, Shen Yuhuai felt that the other person was very lonely.

The young man noticed the noise on this side and gazed in this direction, squinting slightly as if making a judgment.

Shen Yuhuai lowered the car window.
“Wait a long time.
Get in the car first.”

After getting in the car, Shen Yuhuai noticed that Chen Qizhao’s hair was a bit messy and that he hadn’t done up the zipper of his coat.

“I’m sorry to bother you.” Shen Yuhuai skillfully reversed the car and returned.
“Should we go directly to the suburbs?”

In the afternoon, he received a message from Yan Kaiqi saying that some of the certificates and luggage that Yan Kailin asked for last time had been sent to the apartment.
Shen Yuhuai hadn’t returned to the apartment during this time.
He wanted to call Yan Kailin to remind him to take it but he found that Yan Kailin couldn’t be contacted.

Chen Qizhao emerged from his confused thoughts but he didn’t look at Shen Yuhuai.
Instead, he looked down at his phone.
“I feel that he shouldn’t be in the suburbs…”

Suddenly, Shen Yuhuai’s hand stretched over with his mobile phone.

“I’m not very familiar with the road to the suburbs.
Can you help me navigate where to go?”

Shen Yuhuai’s fingers were a bit icy.
Chen Qizhao accidentally touched it and quickly retracted his hand.
He wanted to call Yan Kailin but when he opened the address book, he noticed that the screen was still stuck at Shen Yuhuai’s contact information.

From a long time ago, he became friends with Shen Yuhuai and every time he was troubled, he always wanted to call or send a message to Shen Yuhuai.
Even if the other person didn’t reply to him in time, his emotions would always disappear by sending a message.
It was weird.
Maybe it was because he was sick.

Chen Qizhao silently closed the contact interface and called Yan Kailin.

Yan Kailin was an adult and was unlikely to disappear for no reason.
Chen Qizhao had to contact the rich second generation who had a good relationship with Yan Kailin and inquire about Yan Kailin’s whereabouts in the afternoon.

The car was very quiet.
Chen Qizhao wasn’t as noisy as Yan Kailin.
Apart from giving directions and making phone calls, there was no other sound in the car.

They were just about to arrive at the outskirts of the city when a phone call was received.
Yan Kailin’s name appeared on the mobile phone screen.

“Yan Kailin is calling.” Chen Qizhao answered the phone after speaking.

On the other side of the phone, Yan Kailin’s extremely bright voice was heard.
“Brother, are you looking for me? My phone was out of power before.
I just turned it on…”

Chen Qizhao: “……”

“Your phone was out of power for four or five hours before it turned on?”

Perhaps it was because his voice was a bit louder but Shen Yuhuai, who was driving next to him, looked sideways.
“What’s wrong?”

Chen Qizhao paused.
“It is nothing.”

He remembered the words Yan Kailin had told him when chatting.

…His voice seemed to be too loud just now.

Yan Kailin was still talking.
“It is none of my business if the phone runs out of power.
Who would’ve known it would lose power so quickly?”

Chen Qizhao glanced at Shen Yuhuai and found that the other person was driving slowly.
He couldn’t help slowing down his tone.
“Where are you?”

“Now? I’m at school.
I happened to meet students of the school on the road and hitchhiked back.”

The GPS in the car was still broadcasting the address and Qinghe Road was getting closer.

Chen Qizhao: “……”

Shen Yuhuai asked, “What happened? Where is he?”

Chen Qizhao held back the words that came to his mouth.
“Why didn’t you make a call?”

Yan Kailin’s voice was filled with some grievances.
“I couldn’t remember the phone number.”

Chen Qizhao gave up talking to Yan Kailin and told Shen Yuhuai, “He is already at the school.”

“That’s fine.”

On the other end of the phone, Yan Kailin seemed to hear something.
“Huh? Brother Zhao, who is next to you?”

Chen Qizhao’s tone was normal.
“I’m hanging up.”

Shen Yuhuai said, “I’m sorry, I thought something had happened and called you out.”

Chen Qizhao put the phone in his pocket.
He usually didn’t have much patience.
However, considering the fact that the other person was Shen Yuhuai, he paused for half a second before replying, “It’s okay… it is right to find someone if you can’t get into contact with them.”

Shen Yuhuai turned back at the intersection to return to the city.
His memory seemed very good and he no longer needed the GPS.

“Go back to the villa area?” Shen Yuhuai asked.

Chen Qizhao didn’t reply immediately.
He paused for a while before requesting, “Can you send me back to school?”


Chen Qizhao looked at the road conditions ahead.
He had drank some alcohol in the afternoon.
Then he went home and had a big fight with Chen Qizhao.
He relaxed slightly and sleepiness poured in.

It wasn’t until there was a sudden grunt that Chen Qizhao woke up.

Shen Yuhuai smiled.
“I was negligent.
Have you eaten?”

It was now after 8 o’clock in the evening and was close to 9 o’clock.
Chen Qizhao’s stomach was empty aside from some fruit that he ate at the racetrack this afternoon.

“Not yet.” Chen Qizhao sat up straight.
“It is okay.
I’ll just go back to school and order takeout.”

It took less than half an hour to return to the city, but on the way, Chen Qizhao didn’t play with his mobile phone.
He didn’t have any unnecessary movements.

Shen Yuhuai said, “I haven’t eaten either.
I’ll invite you to dinner.”

He glanced at the young man sitting in the passenger seat only to see the other person pause for two seconds before agreeing.

The car turned the corner at the next intersection and finally stopped in front of a restaurant.

The two of them chose a seat by the window.
After ordering the meal, Shen Yuhuai seemed to deal with work messages on his phone.
He had apologized to Chen Qizhao and started replying to the message, using professional terms that Chen Qizhao couldn’t understand.

Chen Qizhao looked at the young Shen Yuhuai and seemed to see the scene of the two of them eating together in his previous life.

He didn’t make any extra movements and quietly waited for Shen Yuhuai to finish dealing with things before he asked, “How does Brother Huai know my phone number?”
