The True Scandal Chapter 1.1

TL: snaggletooth


The third day after Tang Zhi and Xu Keyu held their wedding, Xu Keyu had a car accident.

.

It was a ridiculous wedding, Tang Zhi remembered every detail of it.

.

At that time, the seats were filled with many guests, the white wedding dress moved slightly, and the scorching sun burned the back of the right hand that he raised.

Xu Keyu held his arm tightly, raised her face, and called his name —— at the end of the ceremony, the groom must hug and kiss the bride.

Tang Zhi lowered his head and looked at Xu Keyu. Xu Keyu’s eyelashes trembled in the sun and said shyly to Tang Zhi, “Laogong[1]husband.”

Tang Zhi didn’t immediately respond to Xu Keyu, instead, he looked up at Xu Sheng sitting in the first row. Xu Sheng also happened to be looking at him, so they made eye contact for a very short moment.

Xu Sheng sat there neatly, gently holding the hand of old madam Xu in the wheelchair, who had previously been lying in the hospital bed for a long time.

He loosely and un-alarmingly looked at Tang Zhi, then nodded to him.

Tang Zhi failed to find any special emotion in Xu Sheng’s eyes.

Instead of the bride’s brother, Xu Sheng is more like a routine director, watching his highly paid actors perform on the stage indifferently and has no actual interest in the wedding itself.

“Laogong!” Xu Keyu softly called again, reminding him that it was time to kiss.

Tang Zhi lowered his head again and happened to see Xu Keyu close her eyes. He hesitated for two seconds, then kissed the center of her eyebrows before stretching out his hands to embrace her tightly.

The audience at the wedding scene was relieved. After a short silence, cheers one after another broke the silence and poured in from all directions.

In the muddy noise and racket, Tang Zhi let go of Xu Keyu.

He saw a happy smile on Xu Keyu’s creamy cheeks, saw light blue balloons, saw the green ground and the sun, and also smelled the slightly astringent fragrance of a grass drink.

Somehow, three days later, when he heard the housekeeper speak the news of Xu Keyu’s accident while trembling. What suddenly appeared in front of Tang Zhi were not the memories related to Xu Keyu, but the eyes of Xu Sheng that were not mixed with emotions, they were so calm that they seemed to carry ominous omens.

More than two months ago, on the night of February 4, Xu Sheng sought out Tang Zhi.

At that time, Tang Zhi could no longer bear the harassment of Xu Keyu and quietly resigned from his post. He ran to the nearby city under the recommendation of his former boss, found a job as a warehouse manager of a brand in a department store, and rented a small apartment near the mall.

He changed his job too quickly and didn’t have time to choose a good house. When he moved in, he found that most of the furniture he saw in the market pictures had been taken away by the original tenant. There was nothing in the room except the bed, sofa, and TV, which were temporarily purchased by the landlord.

However, even living in a rented house without anything is more comfortable than being entangled with a rich woman who has mental problems yet doesn’t see a doctor —— at least he won’t be woken up by unfamiliar phone calls in the middle of the night and won’t hear Xu Keyu’s nonsense on the other end of the phone; saying she’s already at his place, and asking Tang Zhi to come down immediately and elope with her.

When Xu Sheng appeared, Tang Zhi had just finished cutting the fruit from the refrigerator and was sitting on the sofa.

The instant the TV was turned on, a sound came out of the doorbell speaker beside the door.

Tan Zhi was stunned for a moment.

In order to avoid Xu Keyu’s entanglement, he didn’t tell anyone his new address. After living in the new apartment for two weeks, this is the first time he heard the doorbell ring.

Tang Zhi felt slightly suffocated, his heart sank, and he didn’t get up immediately.

The doorbell rang for a while, then stopped, but it only stopped for two seconds before it was pressed to ring again.

The wind outside was so strong that the window panes shook and banged against the window frame. The sound of the news on the TV was very quiet, which made the ringing of the doorbell seem louder.

Tang Zhi couldn’t ignore it and was anxious. After sitting for a while, he finally could not bear it any longer and stood up. He walked to the door and looked through the peephole.

The light outside the door was dim. He couldn’t see the exact appearance of the visitor, but he could recognize that it was two tall men, at any rate, it was not Xu Keyu herself.

Tang Zhi slightly raised his voice and asked, “Who is it?”

“Hello, Mr. Tang, my name is Jiang Yan.” One of them outside the door said in a high-pitched voice, as if he was afraid that Tang Zhi could not hear him clearly. “We have something urgent to talk to you about. Can you open the door for us first?”

Then he slipped two pieces of paper under the crack of the apartment door, “Please take a look, here are our business cards.”

Tang Zhi leaned over and picked them up. One was Jiang Yan, an assistant general manager of Xu Group Real Estate, and the other one had no title, only the name Xu Sheng.

Tang Zhi stared at Xu Sheng’s name for several seconds, then finally opened the door.

Wearing a gray suit that doesn’t match the dirty environment of the corridor, Xu Sheng stood outside Tang Zhi’s house. He slightly lowered his eyes, looked at Tang Zhi, and nodded: “Hello.” He is exceptionally tall. Tang Zhi is not short, but he still had to raise his head to look at him.

There was only one lamp in the corridor. The light was very dim. Most of Xu Sheng’s left face was illuminated in the shadow from the bridge of his nose.

When Tang Zhi finally got a clear look at Xu Sheng, he only felt that the man was overly handsome.

Xu Sheng has high eyebrow bones, a pair of slightly sunken eyes, slightly drooping eyelids, a straight nose, thin lips, a sharp jawline, and a little bit of an exotic temperament on his face.

He had an unperturbed gaze, he politely yet almost indifferently told Tang Zhi, “I’m Xu Keyu’s brother.”

Tang Zhi was stunned for a bit, their eyes met for several seconds until he finally took a step back, “Come in.”
