Liu Zhenqiang blocked Fan Hunjun’s path. Li Shanshan wanted to warn him to be careful, but it was too late.
Fan Hunjun braked, causing Li Xinqiao’s body to hurtle forward. When she got off the bike and saw Li Shanshan, Li Xinqiao’s face flushed crimson, the redness extending down to her neck.
Li Shanshan, however, wasn’t embarrassed at all. She never thought of the marriage as legitimate, and she never took Fan Hunjun seriously. Even though her father Li Haobo had reminded her yesterday, Li Shanshan still was in no mood to care for Fan Hunjun, nor was she interested in him. Thus, she treated Li Xinqiao and Fan Hunjun’s arrival as though they were air.
Liu Zhenqiang, however, laughed in disbelief. “Hey, isn’t this little Qiao? Even though you used to sit next to him, aren’t you Wang Xu’s wife now? Wang Xu seems to be Fan Hunjun’s friend too. Has the world changed? Is your friend’s wife for riding now?”
The security guards, who were in charge of the traffic and gate, recognized Liu Zhenqiang, Li Shanshan and Fan Hunjun in an instant. The three of them had caused a commotion here yesterday, and Liu Zhenqiang had even brought plenty of lackeys with him.
The two guards looked at each other. One of them pulled out their phone to inform the police while the other approached Fan Hunjun and the rest, wordlessly observing the situation.
“Liu Zhenqiang, what did you say?”
Although Li Xinqiao was tiny and wasn’t one to talk back when they were in school, she had lived an honest life as a good wife ever since she married Wang Xu. She typically didn’t get into trouble, but now that she was faced with Liu Zhenqiang’s insufferable, arrogant demeanor, her face darkened, especially when he tried to bully Fan Hunjun, whom she had had a crush on.
At that moment, Li Xinqiao didn’t care how Li Shanshan perceived her, nor did she care that she might be wrongly perceived. The only thought she had was to protect Fan Hunjun and ensure that he didn’t come to harm.
She acted without hesitation and immediately stood in front of Fan Hunjun to shield him.
Liu Zhenqiang smiled wickedly. “Qiao, your Wang Xu will eventually fall prey to crime. It’s not easy to earn money. If you want some male company, you best find some pretty-faced young man. Look at Thoughtless Hun’s face. He’s not a pretty face, and he’s actually quite tan!”
“Liu Zhenqiang,” Li Xinqiao said as she pointed a finger at him. “Scram as far as you can. Whether I pay for male company or not is none of your business!”
“Hey man, I seem to have forgotten that you aren’t in the chat group.” Liu Zhenqiang pointed a thumb at Li Shanshan. “You know who this is? She’s Thoughtless Hun’s wife…”
Li Shanshan rolled her eyes at him before he finished speaking. “You idiot, why are you dragging me into this?”
Fan Hunjun had been holding back his anger all this time, because he wanted to see what Liu Zhenqiang would do. However, Li Shanshan’s words immediately enraged him.
What did she mean by ‘dragging her into this’? Am I not her legal husband? I still haven’t fully paid her back for cheating on me, and now she wants to severe ties with me?
“Alright, I’ll stop.” Liu Zhenqiang’s smiling face immediately darkened. With his chin angled upward, he looked at Fan Hunjun in contempt. “I say, Thoughtless Hun, did you forget what I said to you yesterday, or do you just not get it?”
Fan Hunjun already saw red due to Li Shanshan’s earlier words. He was like a rocket, a rocket that would explode the moment he crashed into a planet. He didn’t think that Liu Zhenqiang’s words would fan the flames even more.
Fan Hunjun wordlessly stepped toward Liu Zhenqiang, with murderous intent shone from his gleaming bright eyes.
Li Shanshan trembled when she saw this, and blurted loudly, “Zhenqiang, watch out!”
Li Shanshan didn’t care anymore. Right now, she should have either kept quiet or spoke up to warn Fan Hanjun, and yet, she warned Liu Zhenqiang.
She always called Fan Hunjun ‘Thoughtless Hun’, but she addressed Liu Zhenqiang as ‘Zhenqiang’. To Fan Hunjun, this was no different from pouring oil onto a fire.
Li Xinqiao froze when Fan Hunjun brushed against her shoulder as he walked. When she thought of reaching out to stop him, it was already too late.
Liu Zhenqiang still did not realize that he was in danger now. To Liu Zhenqiang, Fan Hunjun’s murderous expression was just anger born from humiliation. Even if Fan Hunjun borrowed the courage of 100 people, Fan Hunjun still wouldn’t dare to touch so much as a hair on his head.
“What, you still gonna fight me?”
“Fight you? You’re not worthy!” With that, Fan Hunjun brought his leg up and kicked Liu Zhenqiang straight in the chest.
Liu Zhenqiang sensed a massive force and then he lost his balance. He only felt the immense pain as his body sailed through the air. When he finally landed on the ground with a ‘thump’ and tried to get up, he sensed something in his chest. With a cough, he spat out a fine mist of blood.
The two security guards were confused.
One of them had intended to stop Liu Zhenqiang while the other guard called the police, if Liu Zhenqiang began to fight. However, they saw Fan Hunjun walk up to Liu Zhenqiang, and the next moment, Liu Zhenqiang flew backward.
The two guards eyed each other, unsure of what to do.
Li Shanshan was dumbstruck.
From her recollection of him, Fan Hunjun was a useless person. When he was younger, he had been bullied by all the boys in the class. Yesterday, Zhang Junhao had beaten him into the ground, and later on when Liu Zhenqiang’s lackeys pummeled him, he wasn’t able to fight back.
Althought Fan Hunjun had roughed up Zhang Junhao until the latter needed to stay in the hospital, Li Shanshan just thought it was because Zhang Junhao didn’t pay attention and got caught off-guard.
Now, she saw how Fan Hunjun had sent Liu Zhenqiang flying with a single kick, and how Liu Zhenqiang was sitting on the ground coughing up blood. It was then that she finally believed her father’s words. Fan Hunjun absolutely did not do any normal labor while overseas. He must have had some wondrous experiences.
Li Xinqiao’s body began to quiver from excitement after she recovered from her momentary shock. Had Li Shanshan not been around, she would have already screamed “beat him to death”.
After all, Li Shanshan had just married Fan Hunjun. Li Xinqiao was scared that Li Shanshan would misunderstand her, so all she could do was clench her little hands tightly while singing praises in her heart. You got him! You got him good!
Fan Hunjun stepped over. Liu Zhenqiang still thought of getting up to get the jump on him, but when he placed his fingers on the ground, he felt a bone-crushing agony on his chest. It hurt so much he could not help but scream.
Fan Hunjun stepped on Liu Zhenqiang’s face and ground it into the ground. “You twerp, have you forgotten your experiences in school? Remember this now. From today onward, I’ll give you a pummeling every time I see you, until you leave this city!” he said coldly.
Liu Zhenqiang had told him those words yesterday, and now, Fan Hunjun repeated all of it word-for-word to Liu Zhenqiang.
Liu Zhenqiang was, of course, not at all pleased. He struggled to get up, but the more he struggled, the more his chest hurt, so he lay on the ground like a dead dog, not even daring to move a muscle.
It was then that Li Shanshan came back to her senses. She held her phone as she yelled at Fan Hunjun. “Thoughtless Hun, let him go now or I’m calling the police!”
Fan Hun was even more beside his anger with this.
Only now she thought of calling the police. What about just now? What about yesterday? Fan Hunjun could understand if it was for Zhang Junhao, but she was doing it for Liu Zhenqiang?
What made Fan Hunjun even more enraged was that Wang Xu and Li Xinqiao always addressed him by his name. However, Li Shanshan still called him ‘Thoughtless Hun’ even when they were married.
Fan Hunjun fished out his marriage certificate from his pocket and hurled it at Li Shanshan’s face. Then, he stomped on Liu Zhenqiang’s face before heading right into the hospital.
