I forgot to mention about this Chen Yuzhou. This name sounded very familiar to me. When I saw him in person, it confirmed my suspicions. This person was also my high school classmate, a wealthy second-generation, the boss in high school and, a tyrant in the class. He liked Lin Fang since high school and had been pursuing her ever since.
“Eh, isn’t this that person?” Chen Yuzhou wrapped his arms around Lin Fang’s waist before directing his gaze at me.
Lin Fang had a blank expression, “You know him?”
I thought to myself, how could it be so ironic. Chen Yuzhou was the one who remembered me instead of Lin Fang.
“Fang Fang, don’t you remember? He is that guy who stalked you home and took liberties with you on the road. Afterward, I ordered Liu Hu to surround him at the toilet and beat him up. You really don’t remember? Oh, he’s the one that likes to drink water from the toilet bowl. What is his name again?”
Lin Fang‘s pupils contracted vigorously as she stuttered, “You are Zhang Chao?!”
My fists that were hidden behind cracked soundly. So he was the one who instructed Liu Hu to do those things!
Mr. Lu could tell that something was wrong, so he quickly said, “So all of you know one another. That’s wonderful! Mr. Chen, fate has brought us together. Our cooperation this time will surely be smooth-sailing. Zhang, go and get some food to eat, and put it on my tab.”
Life in the military has not only changed my physique but, also my personality. I was no longer the cowardly, timid and, rash Zhang Chao from before.
Also, I didn't need to pick a fight with Chen Yuzhou. With my current status, getting involved with him would be stooping down to his level.
However, Chen Yuzhou did not allow me to leave. After glancing at Lin Fang, he walked over to me, “Hey, don’t go. How rare is it for us to gather after graduation.”
I suspected that this bastard had problems with his brain. We could even use blood feud to describe our relationship. It was good enough that I was not finding trouble with him, yet he provoked me again and again repeatedly.
“No need, I shall not intrude on your business negotiations.”
“Eh, Mr. Lu. Your driver is not giving me face. A mere driver is putting on such airs. Looks like our partnership this time…...”
I sniggered and said, “Chen Yuzhou, I didn’t think that while you like Lin Fang, you also fancy male drinking companions. Your taste is quite unique. Pardon me, I’m afraid I don’t share your taste. I am a strict heterosexual. I will leave first.”
The service staffs in the room could not help but laugh loudly. It was quite a sight as Chen Yuzhou’s face darkened instantly.
The one most at a loss was Mr. Lu. He could tell that Chen Yuzhou and I have grudges and did not want to let me stay. He also did not dare to let me leave after hearing Chen Yuzhou’s words.
Since everything was out in the open, Chen Yuzhou dropped his pretense before sitting down cross-legged and laughed coldly, “You are just a driver, what kind of attitude are you giving me? Today, if I tell you to sit then you have to sit. The same goes if I tell you to kneel, then you must kneel. You fucker don’t think too highly of yourself. I have seen you as an annoyance since high school. How dare you clamor after my woman. Let me tell you. If I put the words out, you will never find a job except begging in Tong City!”
After finishing his words, he forcefully rubbed one of his hands up and down on Lin Fang’s waist. Even the waitress standing at the side could not bear to watch and lowered her head. Lin Fang’s face turned extremely red but she did not dare push him away. She was caged by him and could only let him do as he pleased.
Mr. Lu immediately jumped in, “Mr. Chen, don’t be angry. I will fire him right now. He is no longer part of the company from now on,”
“Who asked you to fire him? Keep him and bring him around every time in the future. Zhang Chao, look carefully. Lin Fang is my woman. If you dared touch my possession, I will definitely let you recall how the incident played out in the high school toilet.”
I jumped up immediately. I wanted to smash the table and beat this bastard to a pulp.
However, Lin Fang was quicker than my movement. Her slap across Chen Yuzhou’s face landed with a crisp sound. Chen Yuzhou held his face, stunned while looking at Lin Fang. She was breathing heavily as she picked up a glass of wine on the table and poured it over Chen Yuzhou’s head.
“You need to wake up. You went too far.”
That slap rendered everyone present speechless. No one thought that Lin Fang would dare hit Chen Yuzhou when his bad temper was known to all.
Chen Yuzhou’s face darkened while Mr. Lu’s face immediately blanched.
Lin Fang tided her clothes before saying to us, “I am going to the washroom,”
Chen Yuzhou scrambled to chase after her, “Fang Fang, don’t get angry....”
The two of them consecutively left the private room. Mr. Lu and I who were left behind stared at each other. I was dumbstruck when I saw Lin Fang slapped him for my sake. Was that the same Lin Fang who did not dare to speak truthfully and, caused me to be maligned and beaten up wrongfully?
“Y-you still dare to laugh?! Oh no, oh no, we are all finished now. Of all people you could offend, you chose to offend Juen Group’s Young Master Chen. We are in deep trouble now!”
I really could not help but grin foolishly. After I managed to control my smile, I assured him, “Mr. Lu, don’t panic so much first. I will go out and have a look.”
I was worried that something would happen to Lin Fang, so I pushed open the door and followed after them. I seldom came to Spring Garden , so I had to ask the service staffs for directions to the washroom. When I reached the entrance, I saw Chen Yuzhou grabbing Lin Fang’s hands and pushing her.
“It has been so many years and you still can’t forget him? What is so good about that poor son of a bitch?!”
“I have already told you I lied to you at that time! The truth is he saved me on that night and wanted to send me home. Why do you not believe me?!”
“Of course not. If you don’t like him, why do you refuse to be my girlfriend?”
“Chen Yuzhou, you are really crazy! You are asking me why I refuse to be with you? Why don’t you ask yourself?! You have flings with so many women. How dare you approach me before clearing those matters up? What do you think I am?! Let go of me!”
Chen Yuzhou grabbed Lin Fang’s wrist and spoke maliciously, “Wretch, you are talking about these now? How come you didn’t mention them when I gave you money?”
“That money was a loan from you. I said I would return them to you! Chen Yuzhou, so this is actually how you see me. Do you think I am doing this for money? Let go of me! Don’t harass me again in the future.”
Chen Yuzhou became enraged as he called her a prostitute and raised his hand to slap her. Lin Fang squeezed her eyes shut in fear.
However, that slap never landed on her face. When she opened her eyes, she saw me holding Chen Yuzhou’s raised arm.
Our heights were similar, so our strength looked similar from appearances. However, people who had enlisted in the military before were robust with powerful arm strength, even if it was not apparent. It distinctly differed from Chen Yuzhou’s weak strength, and he was no match for me.
Beads of sweat appeared on his forehead when I squeezed his wrist. He was in awful pain but was too prideful to ask for mercy. The magnificent Young Master from Juen Group was being restrained by a mere security guard. It would be extremely humiliating for him if the news was to spread. Even more so, when it was in front of the woman he liked.
“Chen Yuzhou, we are all classmates. It’s not good to raise hands against one another.”
Chen Yuzhou wanted to scold me, but he could only grit his teeth in pain. If he opened his mouth, he would definitely wail in pain.
