Chapter 86.2 – Childhood Friend
Xu Jian and Qin Chen moved to a one-story, one-family luxury duplex apartment that Qin Chen had previously purchased. Above is the leisure area, study, bathroom, two bedrooms, and cloakroom. Below, in addition to the living room, kitchen, dining room, storage room, and other basic functional areas, there is a large open terrace.
On the terrace, in addition to the various flowers and potted plants, there is also a grape arbor set up in the corner, and a fish pond opposite it. The water in the pond is very clean, but there is no fish.
At first glance, the terrace is similar to a small garden, and a few wicker chairs are placed near the balcony.
When he entered the door and saw the house, Xu Jian’s first thought was—
This lot, this area, this decoration… Not to mention his 250,000 yuan, even if he took out 2.5 million yuan, it wouldn’t be enough to pay for half of this house.
However, Du Zezhou looked around after entering the house, and finally nodded, “Except for being a little smaller, the rest of the feeling isn’t bad.”
Tang Li agreed: “The living room is a bit small, but the decoration is quite good. But there are only two of you, is it possible to live.”
Xu Jian: “……”
He no longer wants to talk.
Xu Jian once again felt the gap between the rich and the poor between himself and President Du and shed tears of poverty in his heart.
Qin Chen and Xu Jian only packed clothes and daily necessities, and there weren’t many things. Qin Chen had people clean up the house early in the morning, so it didn’t take long for them to move home.
It stands to reason that when they met for the first time, Du Zezhou and Tang Li helped out again today, and they had to treat guests to a meal together anyway.
However, Du Zezhou and Tang Li very consciously declined the invitation to eat together, and after sitting for a while, they got up and said goodbye.
After the results of their efforts, they didn’t even eat a meal. Xu Jian also felt that it wasn’t right. But to let him and Du Zezhou, his love rival, sit together and eat, watching him and Qin Chen talk and laugh, he wasn’t so generous, and he couldn’t get through the hurdle in his heart.
Because he felt awkward and knew that he might become a sour lemon spirit at any time, Xu Jian said very little throughout the whole process this afternoon and didn’t take the initiative to speak. Only when Qin Chen and the others would he answer a sentence or two when they asked.
Knowing that his performance today was very unnatural, Xu Jian couldn’t control the sourness in his heart when he thought of the relationship between Du Zezhou and Qin Chen.
Du Zezhou smiled at Qin Chen and he felt sour. The two of them looked at each other and felt sour. Even just looking at them standing together, his heart felt very unpleasant.
Qin Chen and Du Zezhou didn’t act too intimately today, but Xu Jian felt that they were concerned about their presence.
Jealousy can’t be shown yet, so his behavior today is an anomaly visible to the naked eye.
Qin Chen sent Tang Li and Du Zezhou downstairs, Xu Jian was up there, reflecting on himself—
I never realized that I was so stingy.
After reflecting for a long time, Xu Jian finally came to the conclusion: Since I have a crush on Qin Chen, isn’t it reasonable to be jealous? If you see Qin Chen be very much in love with others, and has no ripples in his heart, that’s not normal, it indicates that he doesn’t care at all.
The more Xu Jian thought about it, the more he felt justified, so when Qin Chen came back, he saw him sitting on the sofa with a bank card on the coffee table.
Seeing the bank card, Qin Chen’s footsteps paused, he sat down beside him and asked, “What does this mean?”
Xu Jian was still angry with Qin Chen for bringing Du Zezhou without a word, so when he saw him sitting next to him, he got up and moved to the side, distancing the two of them, and his tone was blunt:
“The agreed 250,000 yuan before.”
After saying it, Xu Jian also felt a little lacking, so he added, “Rent.”
Although Qin Chen didn’t know that Xu Jian was jealous, he also knew that he was making trouble, and he had been making trouble all afternoon.
Instead of picking up the bank card on the table, Qin Chen looked at him with a blank face, and remembered what Du Zezhou said to him when he left just now:
“You must ask Xu Jian clearly why he has a problem with me so that I can understand even if I die!”
It’s an important matter. Qin Chen isn’t ready to beat around the bush with Xu Jian, with a gentle expression:
“Let’s not talk about money, I have something else I want to ask you.”
As if knowing what was in his mind, Xu Jian said quickly before he spoke, “Except for Du Zezhou.”
Xu Jian calmly accepted the fact he was small-minded, and he didn’t want to hear anything about his rival from Qin Chen’s mouth.
It’s rare for Qin Chen to be rebuked by Xu Jian. On the one hand, he is a close friend he grew up with, and on the other side is the person he likes. Both Du Zezhou and Xu Jian are very important to him.
Compared to doing multiple-choice questions, Qin Chen is more willing to understand the truth after analyzing the problem, so his expression is somewhat solemn and his tone is affirmative.
“You don’t like him?”
Xu Jian was silent for two seconds when he heard the words, his eyes dodged and looked away from him.
Xu Jian didn’t speak. Judging from today’s get-together, he found that Du Zezhou was actually good but only good as a friend.
But when the label ‘love rival’ was put on Du Zezhou, Xu Jian couldn’t like it.
“Not talking is acquiesce.” Qin Chen looked at his expression and nodded, and asked again, “Can I ask why? Du Zezhou said he hadn’t seen you before.”
After hearing this, Xu Jian thought to himself, it’s true that he has never seen me before, but I still remember him well.
Seeing that Xu Jian was still silent, Qin Chen sighed, the loss in his eyes is evident, “Can’t even say to me?”
Staring at the bank card on the coffee table for a few seconds, a thought suddenly popped on Xu Jian: It’s better to make it clear now.
The 250,000 yuan in the bank card is all the cash he can take out now. Take advantage of this to make it clear. If Qin Chen is willing to leave Du Zezhou, everything will be easy to deal with. If he doesn’t want to, he can also take advantage of this opportunity to move out.
Find a house for himself, so he doesn’t have to continue to live with Qin Chen so vaguely, so as not to be sour every time he see him and Du Zezhou; he can’t control his expression, and it’s also a torment.
Thinking in this way, Xu Jian secretly took a deep breath, looked at Qin Chen in a blink of an eye, and plucked up the courage to ask:
“Do you really want to know?”
Qin Chen looked at him, “If you’re willing to say it.”
Hearing his words, Xu Jian understood. He nodded and looked at him with a serious face, “How long have you known each other?”
Not expecting Xu Jian to ask this question, Qin Chen was taken aback, but still thought about it carefully, and finally said:
“Almost 20 years bah.”
Xu Jian was surprised, “You’ve known each other for so long?”
Xu Jian always thought that Du Zezhou and Qin Chen met after Qin Chen’s debut, but he didn’t expect the two would grow up together as childhood sweethearts.
I initially thought it was a being kept script, but I didn’t expect it to be a childhood sweethearts script.
He was suddenly unsure whether Qin Chen and Du Zezhou were in unspoken rules or in love with each other.
Seeing that his expression wasn’t right, Qin Chen frowned subconsciously, “What’s the matter?”
Xu Jian digested this fact in his heart, and after stabilizing his mind, he stared at Qin Chen, and it took a long time before he spoke with difficulty:
“Then you guys… When did you get together?”
Qin Chen suspected that there was something wrong with his ears, “What?”
After all the words were said, Xu Jian also had nothing to hide, and solemnly repeated, “You and Du Zezhou, when did you get together?”
Qin Chen: “……”
Qin Chen wasn’t stupid, he finally understood why Xu Jian was making trouble today.
Looking at Xu Jian’s furrowed brows, he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry about this big misunderstanding for a while:
“When did I get together with Du Zezhou? How come I don’t know?”
Xu Jian was dumbfounded after hearing this, “You’re not together?”
After holding back, in the end, he couldn’t, Qin Chen raised his hand and bent his fingers to knock them on Xu Jian’s head. It was rare to be speechless to him:
“He and I have been friends since childhood, what’s in your head every day?”
Afraid that what he said wasn’t obvious enough, Qin Chen continued, “Du Zezhou is the same as Tang Li to me, we’re all childhood friends.”
Xu Jian’s mouth grew: “Ah…”
Damn, did I really misunderstand?
This misunderstanding was a bit big. Looking at Qin Chen’s angry eyes, Xu Jian almost stammered when he spoke:
“N-no ah, Tang Li said before that President Du, there are servants and so on…”
Xu Jian’s mind was a bit confused, and when he finished explaining incoherently, Qin Chen cursed Tang Li in his heart for causing trouble, then explained with a serious expression, “That’s just a joke.”
Qin Chen admired Xu Jian’s brain hole, with just a few words, he made up a big drama that contained unspoken rules.
The point is that he’s been holding back in his heart for so long without saying it, and it’s also difficult for him.
Seeing Qin Chen’s helpless and funny expression, Xu Jian finally understood that he had really misunderstood. After a moment of confusion, a huge ecstasy swept through his heart, and his eyes gradually lit up:
“So, you guys aren’t in a relationship that I thought you were.”
Qin Chen nodded helplessly, “You thought too much from beginning to end.”
When Xu Jian heard the words, the corners of his mouth couldn’t help rising, and thought happily to himself:
Corner,When the person you want is already in a relationship, you’ll continue to pursue the person and find ways to break them, to achieve the purpose of being together with the person. where are you going?
Seeing Xu Jian’s expression, Qin Chen was angry and laughed, “So you’re angry because you misunderstood that Du Zezhou and I are together.”
The happy Xu Jian nodded his head without thinking.
Seeing him so frank, Qin Chen suddenly laughed and said in a low voice, “Mr. Xu, are you jealous?”
Xu Jian paused halfway through his nod, looked up at him nervously, and thought to himself — Am I acting so obvious?
However, Xu Jian raised his head and looked into Qin Chen’s eyes full of smiles at a glance, In Qin Chen’s eyes, he saw his own reflection.
Looking at Qin Chen’s face, Xu Jian walked inattentively, then immediately spoke slowly as if bewitched:
“Yes, I’m jealous.”
The author has something to say:
Du Zezhou clutched his pinched hand: I finally don’t have to carry this pot anymore.
Jian Cat: I’m really sorry…
Qin poop scooping officer: Okay, it’s time to settle the score [Looks at Tang Li and Du Zezhou].
Tang Li & Du Zezhou: ? ? ? It’s my fault, too?
*Shooketh XJ: what, it was a misunderstanding?!
Jie Jie: You silly, silly cat XD so hilarious
