Chapter 98 – Silence
Seeing that Jiang Linxie wasn’t surprised by their arrival, Xu Jian couldn’t help but ask, “President Jiang, how did you know we would come?”
Jiang Linxie smiled when he heard the words, swept a glance at Qin Chen lightly, and winked at Xu Jian, “Guess.”
Xu Jian: ……
I guess you’re a cat mint spirit.
Looking at Jiang Linxie, who was keeping things in suspense, Qin Chen’s expression was flat, “President Jiang is well-informed.”
As if knowing what Qin Chen was going to say, Jiang Linxie said composedly and unhurriedly, “Although the incident last night didn’t cause a sensation in the media, many people heard the news. At any rate, I am the president of an entertainment company, and I still have some contacts.”
Hearing what he said, Qin Chen raised his eyebrow, “I didn’t know before that President Jiang was so enthusiastic, and he had to help seal the media’s mouth staying up all night.”
Jiang Linxie: “Xiao Jian’s family has been kind to me, so I just helped suppress the news. What’s strange about it?”
Qin Chen drove all the way here not to play going in circles with Jiang Linxie, so he stared at Jiang Linxie for a few seconds and said coldly, “Who the hell are you? What is the purpose of you trying so hard to get close to Xu Jian?”
Looking at Qin Chen with a calm face, Jiang Linxie didn’t mind, and even leaned back in a relaxed posture, leaning back on the chair, still with a smile on his face, and said the line again lightly, “Guess?”
Qin Chen ran out of patience, and he abruptly stood up from the sofa. Xu Jian, who was next to him, felt the drawing of daggers in the air and also stood up nervously.
Afraid that the two of them will do something if they don’t agree, Xu Jian was mentally prepared to pull someone and mediate the fight at any time.
However, Qin Chen stood up and just took a step forward behind him. Jiang Linxie, who was sitting, slightly narrowed his eyes. The next second, the single sofa originally on Xu Jian’s right suddenly moved by itself. Like a gust of wind, it came in front of Qin Chen in the blink of an eye and blocked his way.
Xu Jian was startled and reflexively pulled Qin Chen’s arm back.
With eyes wide open, looking at the sofa that no one pushed and moved by itself, Xu Jian’s pupils suddenly shrank, “What’s the situation!”
Don’t tell me the sofa also became a spirit?
Compared with the panic Xu Jian, Qin Chen was much calmer. He looked down at the sofa in the way for two seconds, and then looked up at the calm and composed Jiang Linxie.
Jiang Linxie smiled, “You have experienced skills. Fighting is not my style. It doesn’t look good to be badly bruised, so it’s better for us to keep a safe distance and communicate.”
“Besides, you can’t beat me. If…” Speaking of this, Jiang Linxie paused, and glanced at Xu Jian before continuing to speak, “If it hurts you, I’m afraid Xiao Jian will be distressed and anxious by me.”
Xu Jian, who was named by Jiang Linxie, felt scared in his heart. He looked at the sofa and then at him, frowning subconsciously, “Are you… not a person?”
Xu Jian’s words sounded like a curse. Jiang Linxie slightly tilted his head to look at him, a little surprised in his eyes, “You just came to ask me this question now, isn’t it a little late?”
Xu Jian was stunned, “Late?”
Jiang Linxie smiled lightly, “Qin Chen has long suspected me, and you guys discussed it along the way when you came. I thought you already had the answer.”
Xu Jian didn’t expect him to know the content of their discussion, so he immediately looked at him like a pervert in his eyes—
Actually eavesdropping on them!
Jiang Linxie’s attitude basically acquiesced that he was not an ordinary person, and Qin Chen’s eyes were as sharp as swords when he looked at him.
“All this, are you playing tricks?”
Qin Chen didn’t explicitly say, but Xu Jian knew that he was referring to himself becoming a cat. His breathing stagnated, his heart beating fast, and he looked at Jiang Linxie nervously.
Silver bells, the scent of mint he smelled repeatedly… Could it be that the series of scientifically unexplainable things that happened to him really has something to do with President Jiang?
“Playing tricks?” Jiang Linxie repeated the words again, then asked rhetorically, “What do you mean?”
After saying that, without waiting for Qin Chen and Xu Jian to answer, Jiang Linxie supported his arms on the armrests of the chair and stood up. The next moment, he appeared in front of his desk that was originally behind him.
But in the blink of an eye, Xu Jian didn’t even see how he got up from the chair, let alone how he got around from behind to the front.
Qin Chen pursed his lips and cautiously shielded Xu Jian behind him, looking at Jiang Linxie with vigilance.
Looking at Qin Chen’s movements, Jiang Linxie hooked his lips, raised his long legs, and took a step forward.
At the same time as Jiang Linxie’s feet landed on the ground, the sound of cars honking on the road below, the footsteps of employees coming and going outside the office, the buzzing of the computer mainframe, and the sound of air flowing suddenly stopped abruptly.
The world seemed to be suddenly pressed by a pause button, and all the hustle and bustle disappeared from his ears, and Xu Jian felt that the surroundings instantly fell silent like stagnant water.
It was extremely weird. Xu Jian’s entire body trembled, and he instinctively leaned towards Qin Chen’s side, the two stared unwaveringly at Jiang Linxie with four eyes.
Under the two people’s gaze, Jiang Linxie slowly walked towards them step by step.
“Are you referring to the matter of Xiao Jian turning into a cat or the matter of me taking your two yuan?”
Every time Jiang Linxie took a step toward Xu Jian and Qin Chen, his appearance changed a little. First, he changed into Xu Jian’s appearance, and then under Xu Jian’s shocked gaze, he became the fake Taoist Mustache they had met before in the film and television base.
Looking at Mustache that he hadn’t seen for a long time, Xu Jian set off a stormy wave in his heart, looking at him dumbfoundedly, his hand kept pulling Qin Chen’s sleeve beside him.
“He, he, he…”
What happened before him was too unbelievable, Xu Jian and Qin Chen ‘he’ for half a day and didn’t say a complete sentence.
He said why Mustache’s voice sounded a bit familiar, it turned out that Little Mustache and President Jiang were one person!
Jiang Linxie’s footsteps didn’t stop. With his movements, the beard on his face disappeared, Little Mustache’s squinting eyes turned into a slanted phoenix eyes, the bridge of his nose somewhat straightened, his hair gradually became longer, and the color slowly became lighter. The black suit he was originally wearing also became a cyan robe…
The last person who stopped in front of Xu Jian and Qin Chen was a man with long silver-white hair to the waist, red lips, and red phoenix eyes.
Looking at the person in front of him, Xu Jian hadn’t closed his widened mouth since the beginning.
The facial features of the person in front of him seemed to be exactly the same as Jiang Linxie, but upon a closer look will reveal the subtle difference between the two. The facial features of the person in front of him are more refined than Jiang Linxie, and the two exude different temperaments.
Not knowing if it’s because of the hair, Xu Jian always felt that the person in front of him has a fairy aura, and the whole person exudes a lazy and arrogant aura.
Jiang Linxie swept a glance at the shocked Xu Jian and Qin Chen, who was full of defensive eyes, and smiled very lightly, “No need to be nervous, I mean no harm.”
Qin Chen looked at him in silence and didn’t speak.
And now Xu Jian looked at Jiang Linxie and felt that it was not a big deal that he could become a cat.
After all, there is a person, who not only can turn into his appearance but can also change into long hair out of thin air.
Seeing that neither Qin Chen nor Xu Jan moved, Jiang Linxie also didn’t care, and he directly sat on the sofa next to him.
The moment he sat down, Jiang Linxie turned back into the appearance of being impeccably dressed at the beginning, and the face that Xu Jian was familiar with.
At the same time, the sound of cars honking resounded outside the window, and the sound of employees’ high heels stepping on the floor was clearly audible outside the office.
The noisy sound rushed into his ears; Xu Jian was still uncomfortable for a moment.
He didn’t know where Jiang Linxie conjured a set of tea sets. The teapot that no one touched rose out of thin air and poured tea into the three teacups.
Jiang Linxie looked at the two, “Sit down.”
What happened today had exceeded Xu Jian’s brain capacity, and he subconsciously glanced at Qin Chen.
Qin Chen paused and pulled him to sit opposite Jiang Linxie.
Jiang Linxie curled his finger and lightly tapped on the table. Two of the cups filled with tea seemed to come alive, swayed towards the two, then stop in front of the two.
Xu Jian looked at the teacup in front of him unblinkingly, his expression was still calm, but he was thinking in his heart—
F*%&, f%$*, the cup also became a spirit!
Qin Chen didn’t care about the fancy cups, and raised his eyes to look at Jiang Linxie, “Can you say it now?”
Xu Jian also had a belly full of questions, took his gaze away from the small cup with difficulty, and nodded to Jiang Linxie.
Under the gazes of the two, Jiang Linxie slowly spoke, “When you finish drinking this cup of tea, you will know everything.”
Xu Jian was skeptical, “Really?”
Jiang Linxie asked, “When have I ever lied to you?”
Xu Jian’s expression is a bit complicated, “… Mustache.”
Jiang Linxie raised his eyebrow, glanced at the two of them for a few seconds, and asked, “Does the method I said didn’t work? I see you guys aren’t quite happy?”
Facing Jiang Linxie’s deep meaningful gaze, Xu Jian suddenly reddened, and annoyed, “Why are you looking at this too!”
Jiang Linxie clarified, “I haven’t seen the scenes that aren’t appropriate for children, don’t misunderstand.”
Xu Jian didn’t believe it, “Really?”
Jiang Linxie said helplessly, “I’m not a pervert, I’m not interested in you, little couple.”He meant young married couple.
Xu Jian breathed a sigh of relief, and was a little embarrassed when he heard him say ‘little couple’, muttering in a low voice, “You know all this.”
Jiang Linxie heard it but was afraid that Xu Jian would be so ashamed and resentful that he would drill into the ground, so he pretended not to hear it.
Since Jiang Linxie said that they’ll know everything after drinking tea, Xu Jian and Qin Chen can only drink tea.
Jiang Linxie’s appearance of keeping people in suspense was a bit asking for a beating, but considering the current situation, Qin Chen couldn’t beat him.
After all, some people aren’t people.
Xu Jian picked up the cup, tilted his head, and drank it all. Qin Chen glanced at him and also followed to drink.
After drinking Jiang Linxie’s tea, Xu Jian and Qin Chen return to their senses. They found that they were no longer in Jiang Linxie’s office, but on a street with heavy traffic.
At this time, it was raining heavily, the street was foggy and the vision was limited. But Xu Jian and Qin Chen stood in the rain yet there was no feeling of rain hitting their bodies, and their clothes and hair weren’t wet.
Before Xu Jian could figure out the current situation, a car roared behind him, and Qin Chen hurriedly went to pull him but it was a step late, the car passed through Xu Jian’s body without hindrance.
Xu Jian, who remained in place, was unharmed.
Xu Jian looked at Qin Chen with lingering fear, “What’s the situation now?”
Qin Chen looked around then said, “It should be because of that cup of tea. No one here seems to be able to see us.”
As soon as he wanted to sigh at this magic, he saw a familiar figure on the side of the road. The other party’s waist-length silver-white hair was extremely conspicuous. He was taken aback, and then quickly raised his hand and pointed, “President Jiang!”
Qin Chen turned his head when he heard the sound and saw the person on the side of the road. Jiang Linxie was dressed in a long shirt with waist-length silver-white hair.
Qin Chen’s eyes narrowed, pulling Xu Jian towards the side of the road. However, before they could approach, another man was holding a black umbrella, walking quickly towards Jiang Linxie.
After seeing the man’s face under the umbrella clearly, Xu Jian’s footsteps suddenly froze and he blurted out, “Dad?!”
